US seeks to negotiate treaty with Iran on ballistic missile, nuclear programs – envoy

The United States is seeking to negotiate a treaty with Iran that will cover both its ballistic missile and nuclear programs, US special envoy for Iran Brian Hook said on Wednesday. The statement came ahead of UN meetings in New York next week. “The new deal that we hope to be able to sign with Iran, and it will not be a personal agreement between two governments like the last one, we seek a treaty,” Reuters quoted Hook as saying at the Hudson Institute. He told an audience that Iranian leaders were “not interested” in talking despite statements by President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that they would be willing to meet with officials.

‘Immigration is not a human right’: Hungary slams ‘pro-migrant’ UN officials for ‘spreading lies’

Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has accused the UN human rights watchdog of “spreading lies” about his country, saying that immigration was not a “fundamental human right.”

The official took aim at the “independent experts” with the UN Human Rights Council, stating they “should not be independent from the truth.”

“Recently, unfortunately, some UN officials started to spread lies against and about my country,” Szijjarto told the UN body’s meeting on Wednesday.

Such officials would like to “force on us impossible things,” namely allowing illegal migrants into the country, Szijjarto stated. “They say that migration is a fundamental human right, which is a lie,” he stressed.

Satellite pics show Syria strike as IAF chief goes to Moscow to explain Il-20 incident

Timely released satellite images have revealed the destruction left by IDF air strikes in Syria’s Latakia after Israel was forced to make a rare admission to the raid which resulted in the downing of the Russian Il-20 recon plane.

On Wednesday, Israeli satellite imaging company ImageSat released three photos of an “ammunition warehouse” in Latakia, showing it before and after the Monday night attack. The three photos, posted on Twitter, show the building was completely destroyed in the strike.

‘Rules for thee, not for me’ Democrats pick & choose sex assault abusers to believe

A woman accusing Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison (Minnesota) of abuse says the party abandoned her – a far cry from top Democrats’ public show of support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser.

Karen Monahan said that she was “smeared, threatened, (and) isolated” by the Democratic party when she came forward with allegations of physical and emotional abuse against Rep. Ellison, the Democratic National Committee deputy chair and Minnesota attorney general candidate.

“I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party,” Monahan tweeted Monday. “I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse.”

Hackers mine bitcoin & other cryptos using leaked spy tool from US govt – report

Bitcoin, monero and other popular cryptocurrencies are being mined by fraudsters who use EternalBlue, the US National Security Agency (NSA) hacking tool that was leaked last year, according to a recent report.

The report, published by the Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA), says detected cases of illicit cryptocurrency mining have skyrocketed to 459 percent in 2018 compared to last year. The surge is linked to the leak of EternalBlue, a tool to exploit vulnerabilities in outdated Microsoft Windows-based systems, the report says.

Privacy fears as popular US government payment site leaks more than 14 MILLION customers' records, including names, addresses and credit card information

Security investigator KrebsOnSecurity discovered that Government Payment Service Inc, or GovPayNet, was using outdated security practices that allowed anyone to easily access a customer's receipt data for anything from bail payments to traffic tickets.

As a result, it would potentially expose a user's name, address, phone number and the last four digits of their credit card number.

After a user pays for a bill on the GovPayNet website, they're directed to a confirmation page for each transaction, which includes a unique string of numbers at the end of the URL.

KrebsOnSecurity found that users could simply type in different receipt numbers in the web address to view other people's bills.

Ford's Schoolmate Claims 'Many Of Us Heard' About Kavanaugh Incident At School - Ford Said She Told No One Until 2012

Women deserve to be believed -- no matter how ridiculous or obviously made up their stories are.

Case in point: Cristina King Miranda, an alleged schoolmate of Christine Blasey Ford, who said Tuesday on Facebook that she "unearthed memories" about how "many of us" heard about the alleged Kavanaugh incident "in school."

There's just one problem: Ford already said she told no one about the alleged incident until 2012 (when Kavanaugh was coincidentally being floated as Mitt Romney's top pick for Supreme Court if he were to win the election).

Gunman killed by police after hurting three in shooting at US software firm

A man who injured three people when he shot up a software company in a suburb of Madison, Wisconsin on Wednesday has been killed by police, authorities said.

The attacker had been critically hurt during the late-morning shooting at WTS Paradigm in Middleton, and later died, Middleton Police Chief Chuck Foulke said. Three other people were wounded during the attack, Foulke said.

City Administrator Mike Davis initially said four people were injured during the shooting in Middleton, about 90 miles (145 kilometres) west of Milwaukee. But he and Foulke said the correct number is three, not including the suspect.

“The US support has prolonged Daesh’s presence in some areas in northeastern Syria,” the Hezbollah leader stated.

Democrats Privately Express Doubt on Feinstein’s Handling of Kavanaugh Information

First of all, the FBI doesn’t investigate these types of matters. Feinstein knows this and is playing dumb.

Second, if this case truly merited the FBI’s involvement, why is the demand just being made now? If this is a serious allegation, Feinstein should have come forward back in July. Instead, she sat on the information and released it when it was politically valuable to do so.

Feinstein’s delay totally undermines Ford’s case and makes it look like an opportunistic guttersnipe. And now Democrats are starting to recognize that Sen. Feinstein really flubbed this one.

Trump's Tariffs Will Cost More Than Obamacare's Taxes

We're not there yet, but President Donald Trump's escalating trade war with China is threatening to completely cancel out the economic benefits of last year's tax cuts—cuts that the president and his supporters have often credited for the growing economy.

Put another way, the potential costs of Trump's trade war could be even more difficult for the president to swallow. The import taxes imposed by the Trump administration will end up being a larger burden for the economy next year than all the taxes associated with the Affordable Care Act—a law that Trump has often described as "a disaster" for Americans.

While Trump has described tariffs as being "the greatest" and promised that his bellicose trade policies will ultimately benefit American workers and the economy, these two new assessments of the costs of those policies should raise questions among Republicans, who largely favored the tax cuts and opposed the new taxes created by Obamacare.

US Removes Freedom of the Press from Its Legal Guidebook

The United States government which early this year unveiled sanctions against top Iranians and national bodies, including the communications minister and the culture ministry, hitting back for alleged media and Internet censorship, is itself one of the biggest violators of freedom of the press in the world.

It’s all for distracting the attention of international civil society when the Trump administration imposes sanctions on Iranian entities and individuals for alleged human rights abuses and censorship. The United States engages in vast human rights abuses and injustice, and the evidence is plenty:

Journalists and free press advocates across the globe are responding with alarm to newly released documents revealing the US government's secret rules for using Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court orders to spy on reporters and arrest them, calling the revelations "important" and "terrifying."

FALSE FLAG! Ukrainian Troops Shelled Their Own Positions Prior To Arrival Of OSCE Observers

Ukrainian fighters, on the eve of a visit to the Lugansk People’s Republic, by the first deputy head of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (HMM), Aleksandr Huga, staged a false flag attack on their own positions, which were then blamed on the People’s Militia of the LPR. This was reported by the official representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR, Lieutenant Colonel Andrei Marochko.

Earlier, the command of the so-called “operation of the united forces” accused the People’s Militia of shelling areas of the Crimean and Lugansk settlements under the control of Kiev.

Marochko noted that the practice of false accusations of LPR servicemen by the Ukrainian side “has long acquired a systematic character.”

Syrian-Russian Victory Only Way to Avenge Israeli-French Strikes

Western and Russian media sources have reported an alleged joint Israeli-French strike on Syria on September 17. The attack included Israeli warplanes and French missile frigates operating in the Mediterranean off Syria’s coast. Amid the attack, a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft with 14 service members aboard disappeared.

The attack immediately prompted commentators, analysts, and pundits to call for an immediate retaliation to the unprovoked military aggression, warning that a failure to react would leave Russia looking weak. Some commentators even called for Russian President Vladimir Putin to step down.

Idlib: Lull Before the Hurricane. New US Military Doctrine for Intervention in Syria

Without fanfare the US has just reformulated its position to create the conditions for it to launch devastating strikes on Syria no longer just on the pretext of alleged use of chemical weapons but on any ‘humanitarian’ pretext the US sees fit. In an interview with the Washington Post on 6 September, James Jeffrey, the hawkish new Special Envoy for Syria fresh from the neocon incubator of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, did not mince words:

“We’ve started using new language,” Jeffrey said, referring to previous warnings against the use of chemical weapons. Now, he said, the United States will not tolerate “an attack. Period.”

“Any offensive is to us objectionable as a reckless escalation” he said. “You add to that, if you use chemical weapons, or create refu¬gee flows or attack innocent civilians.”

Sweden: Anti-Immigration Party Becomes Kingmaker

Swedish police received more than 2,300 reports of potential crimes linked to this year's election, including voter intimidation and threats of violence against property or persons. An international team of observers found irregularities in 46% of the polling stations visited. The team expressed particular concern over the lack of secrecy in voting. Swedish authorities allow more than one voter (normally from the same family) to enter the polling booth together, ostensibly to ensure that the more literate family member can assist the less literate ones to correctly fill in the ballot paper.

"We are concerned about the significant level of family voting where women, older voters and the infirm can be guided or even instructed how to vote by another family member... We feel this may be a way of suppressing some voters from freely choosing their own choice." - Statement on the Swedish election from Democracy Volunteers,election observers.

95 Palestinians injured in clahses with Israeli soldiers in northern Gaza

At least 95 Palestinians were wounded on Monday evening in their clashes with Israeli soldiers on the border between the northern Gaza Strip and Israel, the Gaza health ministry said.

Of the 95 injured, 26 were shot by live gunshots, while others suffered suffocation after inhaling tear gas, Ashraf al-Qedra, the ministry spokesman, told reporters.

The protests in northern Gaza were organized by the Gaza-based highest commission of the March of Return to defy the Israeli blockade on the Palestinian coastal enclave.

The demonstrators threw stones and burned tires close to the border fence, while Israeli soldiers used tear gas and live gunshots as reponses.

South Korean President Greeted in North With Calls for Peace, Reunification

With the previous two inter-Korean summits both major successes, the three-day summit this week in Pyongyang kicked off early Tuesday with the arrival of South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and high hopes for more progress.

Moon’s arrival, and his joint motorcade to the talks with Kim Jong Un was met with huge crowds in the streets, waving and cheering the passing cars, and chanting for peace and the reunification of the Korean Peninsula.

The greetings of the two leaders in a celebratory environment reflected Kim’s own comments on the matter, that he expects more progress after the successes of the past. Peace is expected to be one of the immediate focuses of the talk.

President Moon made clear that his goal for the summit is an irreversible peace agreement. Beyond that, early discussions are said to focus on trying to get the denuclearization process back going after it stalled in recent weeks.

Moon: North Korea Agrees to Allow Nuclear Inspections

In the course of this week’s inter-Korean summit, South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in announced on Wednesday morning that North Korea has agreed to several moves, including allowing international nuclear inspectors into the country to observe the continued dismantling of the nuclear program.

This appears to have been the result of early discussions on how to get the denuclearization process started up again. Kim Jong Un agreed to permanently dismantle a missile engine test site and launch pad, and that would be where the inspectors are to be in attendance.

Tentatively, North Korea is also committed to permanently dismantling the Nyongbyon nuclear complex if the US takes “corresponding measures.” It is unclear what the US is expected to do in return.

Made inAmerica

Last month, a CNN investigation found remnants of a US-made bomb at the scene of an airstrike that left dozens of schoolboys dead. Now, an independent Yemen-based human rights group called Mwatana has given CNN exclusive access to a trove of documents that show fragments of US-manufactured bombs at the scene of a string of other incidents since 2015, when the civil war began. In each of those cases, civilians were either killed or put at risk.

Mwatana, which documents violations by all parties in Yemen’s conflict, used its network of trained field researchers to photograph evidence at the scene of strikes. The group consulted weapons experts to identify the weapons used from serial numbers found on the fragments. Mwatana was recognized last month with an award by US body Human Rights First.

GMO Lobby Plots to Corrupt EU Court Ruling on Gene Editing

Israel’s Failed Attempt to Start WWIII is the Beginning of the End

There is one thing that Israel fears more than anything else in Syria. The loss of its ability to fly its F-16’s with impunity and hit whatever targets it wants claiming defensive measures to stop Iran, their existential enemy.

Israel finally admitted to carrying out over 200 such missions over the past 18 months, only a few of which ever made any kind of international media, recently.

And with the sneak attack on Latakia which involved using a Russian IL-20 ELINT war plane as radar cover Israel has now not only raised the stakes to an unacceptable level, it has also ensured that this may be the last such aerial assault it will ever be able to carry out.

Another Kavanaugh Witness, Patrick Smyth, Emerges – Denies Sexual Assault Incident

I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as “PJ” who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post. I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.
This makes yet another witness who denies what Ford is alleging. Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh, was also named by Ford as the other person in the room at the time of the incident. Judge denies that Kavanaugh ever assaulted Ford.

Obama Center-related construction in Jackson Park stopped by City Hall

The city and Chicago Park District on Monday announced a halt to Obama Presidential Center-related construction in Jackson Park after moving ahead while crucial federal reviews of the project were still ongoing.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported in August that the park district was cutting down trees in Jackson Park despite a federal lawsuit, city and federal approvals pending, and a pledge from the Obama Foundation CEO to keep trees intact until the permitting process is complete.

Given the controversy over the tree cutting and federal agencies becoming more active in reviews, the city at the beginning of September decided to slow down construction of a new track field – needed because the proposed Obama Center will be taking over land where an existing field is located.

The city decision to stop the work came after a Sept. 11 meeting with the National Park Service and the Federal Highway Administration.

Breaking: Debra Katz, Attorney for Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford, Was Fundraiser for Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign

A document from the Podesta files at Wikileaks shows that Debra Katz, the attorney for Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, was an early fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The campaign memo intended for Clinton stated that as of November 2015 Katz had raised over $29,000 for Clinton.

Debra Katz, image via Twitter avatar. (Katz’s account is “protected”. Her Twitter bio reads, “Civil rights lawyer at @kmblegal. Women’s rights and social justice activist, and mom of a teenage son — in other words, exhausted!”

Amber Guyger Free on Bail as Activists Who Peacefully Protested Her Rot in Jail—This is Blue Privilege

The case of Amber Guyger, the police officer who admitted to shooting 26-year-old Botham Jean in his apartment for no reason, is a glaring example of “blue privilege” at work in our society. Guyger claims that she accidentally entered the wrong apartment and shot a man who she thought was a burglar, however, eyewitness testimony has contradicted her initial statement.

Despite admitting to killing an innocent man and having her initial statement contradicted by witness testimony, Guyger has been treated as more of a victim than a killer. In fact, Guyger’s apartment was never even searched for evidence, and she was allowed to “vacate” the premises without any type of search.

By not searching her apartment immediately, police ruined the investigation, making it harder to prosecute her. It would be reasonable to assume that these steps were taken intentionally because they want to see her get away with it.

One Of America’s Largest Egg Producers Caught Using Child Slaves – Given To Them By US Gov’t

This Monday, another suspect pleaded guilty to his role in a human-trafficking ring that took advantage of immigrant children and forced them into slave labor. 50-year-old Pablo Duran Ramirez Jr. is the fourth person to plead guilty in the case, which involved a number of children being forced to work on an egg farm. He faces up to a decade in prison at his sentencing in January.

According to court records, a labor company named Haba Corporate Services, owned by Ramirez, arranged for trafficked immigrants to work with Trillium Farms, where they were physically threatened and forced to live in horrible conditions.

Trillium reportedly paid Haba $6 million for the immigrant workers, who were promised that they would be provided with jobs and education when they got to the States. Some of the workers were as young as 14 years old.

Post Columnist And Trump Administration Team Up On Iran Regime Change

It’s starting to look like the Iran regime-change industry is getting a little worried that its efforts to kill the nuclear deal and squeeze Iran’s leaders out of existence isn’t quite working as planned. For instance, Donald Trump’s scheme to pressure Iran by re-imposing oil sanctions will likely produce political blowback at home in the form of higher gas prices.

But the latest example of concern comes in the form of a juicy scoop last week by Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin. Administration officials leaked to Rogin that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is quietly preventing Trump from signing the paperwork necessary to impose sanctions meant to prevent Iran from accessing an international banking transaction system. The move would severely restrict Iran’s ability to do business abroad and add another nail to the coffin of the nuclear deal (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA).

America 'One Of 45 Countries' Infected By Uber-Powerful Israeli Smartphone Spyware

Some of the world’s most sophisticated Android and iPhone spyware has been found floating around America for the first time. It's one of as many as 45 countries in which NSO Group malware was uncovered. And together they may represent breaches of American and other nations' computer crime laws against cross-border hacking, not to mention a severe concern for citizens’ privacy, according to the researchers who uncovered the professional spy software.

The malware of concern, dubbed Pegasus, is the creation of NSO Group, an Israeli company valued at close to $1 billion. It can hide on Apple or Google devices, spying via the camera, listening in on conversations through the microphone, stealing documents and siphoning off once-private messages, amongst other surreptitious activities.

Our founders, by virtue of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and other federal papers, tried to set up our government to include checks and balances to prevent any one person or group from accumulating enough power to become a dictatorial entity – free elections, limits on presidential terms of office, and so on.

They gave us three branches of government: the legislative branch to create and pass legislation and limit the powers of the president, and the Supreme Court to interpret the meaning and intent of the legislative branch’s writings and have the final word on how the legislation affirmed or disaffirmed the Constitution.

Government agencies were to serve all the people equally, to give preferential treatment to none. They were never meant to be politicized for the use of the executive or any other branch to further political agendas or personal vendettas.

EXCLUSIVE: Trump says exposing ‘corrupt’ FBI probe could be ‘crowning achievement’ of presidency

President Trump in an exclusive interview with Hill.TV said Tuesday he ordered the release of classified documents in the Russia collusion case to show the public the FBI probe started as a “hoax” and that exposing it could become one of the “crowning achievements” of his presidency.

“What we’ve done is a great service to the country, really,” Trump said in a 45-minute, wide-ranging interview in the Oval Office.

“I hope to be able to call this, along with tax cuts and regulation and all the things I’ve done ... in its own way this might be the most important thing because this was corrupt,” he said.

Trump also said he regretted not firing former FBI Director James Comey immediately instead of waiting until May 2017, confirming an account his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, gave Hill.TV earlier in the day that Trump was dismayed in 2016 by the way Comey handled the Hillary Clinton email case and began discussing firing him well before he became president.

Kavanaugh Accuser Not Ready to Speak to Senate Monday, Lawyer Says

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, will not be publicly testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, Ford's lawyer, Debra Katz, announced late Tuesday.

Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper, Ford's lawyer stressed that the FBI investigation into the allegations "should be the first step."

Senator Mazie Hirono Wants Men to ‘Just Shut Up’

As the attacks on the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford continue, and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly denies the allegations made against him, lawmakers are speaking out. Senator Mazie Hirono, for one, did not mince words. She held men — especially those in government — responsible for the harrowing experience of coming forward with allegations against a powerful man.

“Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country,” she said at a press conference. “I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”

Jeff Flake: If Kavanaugh Accuser Fails To Show Up, I'll Support Move To Push Nomination Forward

Now Flake holds the keys to a Supreme Court confirmation Trump prizes dearly — and could soon yank them away.

Flake flashed a yellow light Sunday night on Brett Kavanaugh’s high court bid, telling POLITICO that he won't support advancing the nomination this week if fellow senators don’t do more to hear out a woman accusing the nominee of sexual assault more than three decades ago. Opposition from the Arizona Republican wouldn’t doom Kavanaugh outright, but it already has ratcheted up political pressure on a GOP struggling to keep Trump’s Supreme Court nominee from a full implosion.

Flake is a charter member of the GOP’s anti-Trump caucus, one of only a few senators in the president’s party who freely tee off on the president’s handling of issues from trade to Russia, though they rarely actively undercut his agenda. Another member of that caucus, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), also called on Sunday night for a delay in the Kavanaugh confirmation process.

Japan Sends China A Message With Submarine War Drill In South China Sea

New information is surfacing about a Japanese submarine military exercise in the South China Sea. The Maritime Self-Defense Force (MSDF) said in a rare statement on Monday that one submarine and three other vessels performed aggressive maneuvers to deter China's militarization of the region.

"Japan has been performing submarine exercises in the South China Sea since 15 years ago. We did so last year and the year before that," Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on a TV program on Monday. "The purpose of the Self-Defense Force drills is to improve their skill. It is not intended for specific countries."

According to the Nikkei Asian Review, this is the first public announcement that the MSDF revealed military exercises by a submarine in the region. Last Thursday, the Hiroshima-based submarine Kuroshio joined helicopter carrier Kaga and two other missile destroyers for maneuvers.

Israel "Expresses Sorrow" Over Russian Plane Downing, But Blames Assad And Iran For Incident

In a series of statements via the official Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Twitter account, Israel has said it "expresses sorrow" over the deaths of the 15 Russian crew members aboard a maritime surveillance plane that was shot down near the Syrian coastal city of Latakia Monday night.

While expressing regret towards the Russian loss of the aircraft and personnel, which was reportedly downed by mistake as Syrian anti-missile defense systems attempted to respond to a barrage of Israeli rockets and airstrikes from over the Mediterranean coastal area, Israel said that ultimately it is the Syrian military that's responsible.

Israel's statement begins by saying it "expresses sorrow for the death of the aircrew members” but that the government of Bashar Assad “whose military shot down the Russian plane,” is “fully responsible” for the incident. Israel also made mention of Iran and Hezbollah while assigning blame for the "unfortunate incident".

"Terrifying": New Documents Reveal Secret Gov't Rules For Spying On US Journalists

Journalists and free press advocates are responding with alarm to newly released documents revealing the U.S. government's secret rules for using Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court orders to spy on reporters, calling the revelations "important" and "terrifying."

The documents - obtained and released by the Freedom of the Press Foundation and the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed last November - confirm long held suspicions that federal officials can target journalists with FISA orders.

Trade War Amplifies: China Sets Tariffs On $60 Billion Worth Of US Goods

In retaliation for tariffs leveled on China, the Communist government has returned the favor, and set tariffs on $60 billion worth of goods imported from the United States. It only took mere hours for China to respond to the announcement that the US would place tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods.

If the U.S. continues to raise its tariffs, China will respond in kind, according to a report by NPR. This current ramp up in the trade war sets the stage for yet another set of tariffs and sky-high tensions between the US and China. On Monday, president Donald Trump also threatened to add levies on about $267 billion of additional imports if China retaliated.

When announcing the tariffs against China on Monday, Trump said China’s trade practices, such as forcing U.S. companies to transfer technology to Chinese firms, “plainly constitute a grave threat to the long-term health and prosperity of the United States economy.”

Witness Says 'Never Saw' Alleged Assault by US Supreme Court Nominee Kavanaugh

Charges by a Christine Ford, a university professor who claims to have been sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh when both were in high school, are being challenged by Mark Judge, who is believed to be only witness to the alleged incident, according to a letter from his lawyer to the US Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman.

"The only reason I am involved is because Dr. Christine Blasey Ford remembers me as the other person in the room during the alleged assault," the attorney’s letter to US Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Thursday quoted Judge as saying. "In fact, I have no memory of this alleged incident. Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes."

Trying to ‘Kill Critical Media’: DOJ Using FISA Courts to Spy on Journalists

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit brought by the Freedom of the Press Foundation and the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University has revealed for the first time the US Justice Department’s rules for targeting journalists with secret court orders under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978.

Until now, it had only been suspected that FISA court orders were being used to target journalists for surveillance — but now there's a much better reason to believe so, thanks to these nonprofits' lawsuit.

The DOJ determined that 14 pages from six documents, dating from February 2014 to March 2015, "containing records responsive" to the groups' request were "appropriate for release with excisions," the release reads. The Freedom of the Press Foundation highlighted the most revealing passage, in a March 19, 2015, memo from then-Attorney General Eric Holder, as follows:

Reality show surgeon, 38, and his girlfriend, 32, who are charged with raping two women on film, 'used their good looks to snare more than 1,000 victims and traveled to Burning Man for prey'

A Californian doctor who appeared on Bravo reality show Online Dating Rituals of the American Male and his girlfriend have been charged with drugging, sexually assaulting and raping two women but investigators believe there could be more than 1,000 victims.

Orthopedic surgeon Grant William Robicheaux, 38, of Newport Beach, Orange County, and Cerissa Laura Riley, 32, of Brea, were charged earlier this month and on Tuesday authorities made a plea for more possible victims to come forward after police found hundreds of videos of intoxicated women believed to have been assaulted by the duo.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said at a news conference that women 'might have felt a false sense of security' around the pair, because they are 'clean-cut and good looking'.

'We have all heard of a wolf dressed up in sheep's clothing,' Rackauckas said. 'Well, a wolf can wear scrubs or doctors' clothing. Or the wolf can be a beautiful woman.'

Trump Declassification Order Will Expose FBI's "Insurance Policy" From Strzok-Page Text: Nunes

President Trump's order to declassify a broad swath of DOJ/FBI documents related to the Russia investigation will expose the infamous "insurance policy" referred to in an August 15, 2016 text between former FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA).

"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take the risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40," reads the text message in question - used by many in Trump's camp to bolster claims that the Russia investigation is "rigged witch hunt."

Congress Members Demand Trump Seek Approval Before Military Action In Syria

A group of over 40 Congress members have sent President Trump a bipartisan letter reminding him that the US Constitution requires that the president seek Congressional approval before taking military action in Syria or elsewhere. Congressman Justin Amash (R-Mich.) announced via Twitter on Monday that the letter had been sent to the White House.

Ironically Rep. Amash made the announcement just as Monday's evening's massive Israeli strike on Syria was underway, which resulted in a downed Russian surveillance plane carrying 14 troops amidst the confusion of missiles flying over the Mediterranean as it was hit by Syrian defense attempting to stave off the attack by Israel.

Sanders hits Feinstein over Kavanaugh allegations: Now it’s clear why she did nothing for months

Big Pharma drug pushers infiltrate local public schools under the guise of “mandatory mental health screenings” for children

According to the World Health Organization, the United States is one of the most depressed countries in the world, with one in five adults experiencing some form of mental health issue each year. While some of the millions of people diagnosed with these conditions seek therapy to cope with their problems, the vast majority are simply handed prescriptions for antidepressant and other psychiatric drugs and sent on their way.

Sadly, more and more children are being swept up in this net of chemical medications. CCHR, the international mental health watchdog organization, warns that over 7 million children under the age of 17 are already on some form of psychiatric medication, including over 2 million on antidepressants, 1.2 million on antipsychotics, and 1.4 million on anti-anxiety medications.

US military given more authority to launch preventative cyberattacks

The US military is taking a more aggressive stance against foreign government hackers who are targeting the US and is being granted more authority to launch preventative cyberstrikes, according to a summary of the Department of Defense's new Cyber Strategy.

The Pentagon is referring to the new stance as "defend forward," and the strategy will allow the US military "to disrupt or halt malicious cyber activity at its source, including activity that falls below the level of armed conflict."
The new military strategy, signed by Defense Secretary James Mattis, also emphasizes an intention to "build a more lethal force" of first-strike hackers.
The "defend forward" initiative wasn't included in the 2015 strategy and further enables the United States to carry out offensive hacking operations to defend against cyberattacks on critical US infrastructure, such as election systems and the energy grid.

China Cuts U.S. Treasury Holdings as Trade War Intensifies

China’s holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell to a six-month low in July, just as a trade war between the world’s two largest economies began heating up.

China’s ownership of U.S. bonds, bills and notes slipped to $1.17 trillion, the lowest level since January and down from $1.18 trillion in June, according to data released by the Treasury Department on Tuesday. Japan, the largest foreign investor in Treasuries after China, increased its holdings, as did Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Singapore and France.

The first salvos in the U.S.-China trade conflict were fired on July 6, when the Trump administration activated tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese goods, which sparked immediate in-kind retaliation from Beijing. The escalation caused the yuan to drop roughly 2 percent in July, suggesting that the Asian nation shed U.S. bonds as a way to sell dollars and support its currency, according to NatWest Markets.

The Yom Kippur Syndrome

When the Yom Kippur War broke out 45 years ago I was ten years old. I recall a lot of fear all around me. Israel was my home and it was about to be wiped out. This is what I believed at the time, and this is what everyone around me repeated. We were all certainly caught unprepared.

My father was called up by the Air Force in the early hours of Yom Kippur (October 6th 1973). We didn’t hear from him for a few weeks. We didn’t know whether he was alive. In fact, we had good reason to believe he wasn’t. We were very worried. For the adults around me, the first days of the war were a reminder of the Shoah. Israeli leaders, Golda Meir and Moshe Dayan as well as the top Israeli military command appeared perplexed and hesitant on TV. Their message was: ‘the future isn’t clear, we may even witness the destruction of the 3rd temple.’

UK social services are taking away record numbers of kids…leaving parents terrified

Having your children taken away by the state is one of a mom’s or dad’s worst nightmares. Unfortunately, this happens to thousands of parents in the United Kingdom every year--and not always with good cause.

According to the UK Sun, the number of children ripped from their parents through “forced care orders” rose from 7, 550 to 10, 130 in 2017: an increase of 34%. When you factor in children taken away with the parents’ say-so, the number rises to 32,810.

Anyone who reads the British newspapers or women’s magazines knows stories about children who were taken away because social workers wrongly accused the parents of abuse. One of the best known is that of Jill Goss, whose daughter Alyssa was taken from her when she was 10 weeks old.

Gregg Jarrett: If Rod Rosenstein defies Trump's order to declassify documents, he should be fired

President Trump has ordered that numerous documents involving the Russia investigation be declassified. The records have long been sought by Congress under lawful subpoenas. Yet, the FBI and Department of Justice have consistently obstructed the release of these materials under the guise of “classified” secrets. This is a convenient alibi all too frequently employed to cover-up wrongdoing and abuse of authority by those we entrust to uphold the law.

These days, overzealous government officials automatically designate nearly all matters as national security risks, regardless of whether they truly are.

Whenever the FBI orders Chinese take-out, it is labeled “top secret” because… you know… it involves the Chinese. False classification has reached absurd proportions.

How do we know? Every time information is declassified we learn that the material should never have been classified to begin with. It was nothing more than a subterfuge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree. If Rod Rosenstein defies Trump's order to declassify documents, he should be fired!

Brooklyn Diocese in NYC agrees to pay $27.5MILLION damages to four men who were repeatedly raped by their Catholic teacher as young boys in the latest pedophile scandal to hit the church

Four men who were victim to horrific child sex abuse by their Catholic religion teacher were awarded a hefty $27.5million settlement by the Diocese of Brooklyn on Tuesday.

The diocese agreed to the pay each of the unnamed victims - who were lured into sleepovers and repeatedly raped by their religion teacher, Angelo Serrano, 67, when they were ages 8 through 12 between 2003 and 2009 - a sum of $6,875,000 each.

Serrano had been working as a religion teacher at St. Lucy’s-St. Patrick’s Church in Brooklyn at the time he abused his young male students.

The disturbing abuse took place inside the church - which has since been shut down - as well as a nearby school building and Serrano's apartment at the time, attorneys for the victims said.

Hundreds of dogs and cats have been rescued from an animal shelter that was about to collapse during Hurricane Florence.

The Carteret County Humane Society in New Port, 15 miles from the North Carolina coast, flooded and its roof threatened to collapse on Friday during the catastrophic storm.

The staff and animals were rescued around 8pm with help from the Cajun Navy.

More than 100 cats and dogs were rescued in trucks and taken to a temporary shelter at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.
