Julian Assange’s Hand Over To UK May Be Imminent According To WikiLeaks

By Aaron Kesel

According to a tweet by the internationally known organization WikiLeaks, its founder’s fate may be decided within a mere few days or weeks, and Julian Assange might be handed over on a silver platter by Ecuador to the UK government. Then presumably Assange will be handed over to the U.S. government and extradited to the United States.

The head of RT, Margarita Simonyan, tweeted in Russian that her sources indicate Assange will be handed over to UK authorities...

Huawei equipment is exposing British broadband and phone networks to new security risks because of 'shortcomings' in the firm's supply chain, senior GCHQ officials warn

Huawei equipment could pose a threat to national security, senior British security officials have cautioned.

Intelligence experts say they can only provide limited assurances that the Chinese company is not a risk to broadband and phone networks in the UK.

The recommendation will be made in an as-yet unpublished annual report signed off by the GCHQ spy agency, according to inside sources.

Huawei, one of the world's biggest producer of telecoms systems, is a major supplier of broadband and mobile telephone network equipment in Britain.

Zuckerberg On Denial and Being Wrong

In an interview with technology website Recode, Mark Facebook Zuckerberg stated that posts from Holocaust deniers should be allowed on Facebook.

In response to a question on Facebook’s policy on fake news, Mr. Zuckerberg offered, without prompting, the example of posts by Holocaust deniers.

"I'm Jewish and there's a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened," he told reporter Kara Swisher. "I find it deeply offensive. But at the end of the day, I don't believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong. I don't think that they're intentionally getting it wrong.”

He added, "everyone gets things wrong and if we were taking down people's accounts when they got a few things wrong, then that would be a hard world for giving people a voice and saying that you care about that."

The secret behind fake bipolar disease in children

Columbia University researchers found a 40-fold rise in office visits among youth diagnosed with bipolar disorder between 1994-95 and 2002-3.”

In 1995, a new wind began blowing across the psychiatric landscape. The public wasn’t aware of it. But among professionals, it was big, very big:

Children, including the very young, could, for the first time, legitimately be diagnosed with bipolar disease (aka manic depression).

The impetus for this “revelation” was a 1995 report, “Is Your Child Bipolar?” written by two doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital, Janet Wozniak and Joseph Biederman.

Biederman would go on to become the target of internal investigations at Harvard and Mass General—did the pharmaceutical money he took influence his judgment in deciding bipolar was a real disorder among children? The charges against him were ultimately reduced to a few light slaps on the wrist; he retained his prestigious position.

MSM Disinformation Scam, Trump/Putin Meeting Fake Hysteria, Wells Fargo Troubles

Putin dropped a bomb in the recent Trump/Putin meeting in Helsinki, Finland. Putin charged that an investment fund manager named Bill Browder (a British citizen) took $1.5 billion out of Russia and that he (and others) made the money illegally. On top of that, Putin charged that some U.S. Intelligence Officers helped guide “$400 million as a contribution to the campaign (2016) of Hillary Clinton.” Putin suggested Russian authorities want a deal to talk to Browder. Trump has turned down Putin, but shouldn’t the U.S. ask some questions? Don’t expect the disinformation scam that is the mainstream media (MSM) to ask the hard questions because FOX and MSNBC would only get Browder’s reaction to Trump turning down the Putin request. NOBODY would ask about the $400 million that Putin says was sent via U.S. Intel Officers to the Clinton Campaign. Not asking that question of Browder, when you have him on camera for an interview, is too stupid to be stupid.

Prominent holistic doctor’s body found floating in Bay Area

Dr Cheung is the latest holistic doctor to be found dead in our “unintended series.” We are now at 93 in just three short years.

Over the weekend, on or about June 16th, holistic chiropractor, 38-year-old Dr. Chris Cheung of Walnut Creek, died after his outrigger canoe allegedly overturned in the Berkeley Marina. Cheung was reportedly paddling alone. His body was found floating in the water Saturday afternoon. The manner of death has not yet been determined by a coroner.

So many of his friends and teammates are in shock, as Cheung was not only a member of the Dragon Max dragon boat team but because he died in the same location where they practiced nearly every day.

First 50 families of farmers from South Africa may soon resettle in Russia

The first families of Boers, descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa, could soon be moving to Russia to escape rising violence against farmers. Some 15,000 Boers want to leave South Africa and become farmers in Russia.
The Schlebusch family from South Africa’s Bloemfontein is going to be among first 50 Boer families to settle in Russia’s southwest. Like many other Boers, they are seeking political asylum in Russia. They say they are facing violent attacks and death threats at home stemming from government plans to expropriate their land.

Earlier this month, farmer Adi Schlebusch visited Russia’s farmbelt Stavropol Region. Schlebusch, whose grandfather was murdered at his farm, told RT that the land in South Africa “was never taken by whites from blacks with violence or in an unjust manner.” He explained that when Boers moved to South Africa in the 19th century, they tried to act in a way that was fair, to negotiate officially and to avoid conflict.

Russiagate: A CIA Concocted Hoax

No Russian interference in America’s political process occurred in 2016, earlier, or is being cooked up for the nation’s November midterm elections.

Trump knows it and said so in Helsinki. When asked if he holds Russia accountable for anything, he said:

“I hold both countries responsible (for dismal bilateral relations). I think that the United States has been foolish. I think we’ve all been foolish…And I think we’re all to blame.”

Regarding election meddling, he said: “There was no collusion at all. Everybody knows it. And people are being brought out to the fore. So far that I know, virtually none of it related to the campaign. And they’re going to have to try really hard to find somebody that did relate to the campaign.”

“My people came to me and some others…(T)hey think it’s Russia…President Putin…said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I dont see any reason why it would be.”

Israel's Defense Minister Says "Large And Painful Military Operation" Set For Gaza

After last weekend's significant escalation in Gaza involving Israeli airstrikes on 40 targets, which reportedly killed two teens and wounded over a dozen others, and over 30 rockets launched by Hamas toward southern Israel, all signs are currently pointing toward a broader outbreak of fighting as in new comments the Israeli defense minister is preparing the public for "a large and painful military operation" to come.

Israeli officials and media have broadly referred to this latest flare-up of hostilities as the biggest attack since Operation Protective Edge in 2014, and now Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman is warning that Israel is prepared to go to war if Gazans don't cease releasing incendiary kites and balloons in attempts to set communities and farmlands in southern Israel ablaze.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: expect an Israeli genocide of Gaza shortly.

Is China's Day Of Reckoning Coming?

Deleveraging is Policy In China Now

The shadow banking system is simply the system of financial transactions that happen outside of the banking system’s oversight facilities. And whenever China makes a substantive change to its monetary policy to burst another part of the shadow banking bubble these bouts of deleveraging (see chart above) occur.

There is also always a wave of bankruptcies and corporate bond defaults as well.

As it should be.

In this case it is a coal miner, Wintime Energy, who defaulted on CNY11 billion of bonds this week. There have been 18 such corporate bond defaults this year. There will likely be dozens, if not hundreds, more.

Why? Because the Trump/China trade war will take its toll on global trade. It will disrupt supplies chains, it already has. And it will cause sharper upward demand for dollars as global trade slows and debt-servicing costs for dollar-denominated corporate debt rises.

Claim: WiFi radiation from Fitbits can cause rashes, illnesses, and blood sugar fluctuations

These fitness trackers are worn as bracelets to keep track of the number of steps that people take in a day, how much sleep they get, how many calories they burn and other metrics depending on the model.

However, they accomplish this using Wi-Fi radiation, which may have very serious health effects such as disfiguring rashes and blood sugar fluctuations that promote weight gain. Making matters worse is the fact that the devices are worn directly against the skin. Cell phone instruction manuals warn people to keep their phones at least an inch away from their bodies at all times because of the radiation dangers, so it’s easy to imagine why wearing these trackers against your wrist at all hours is a bad idea.

Troubled waters: Maxine Waters fans BURN THE FLAG and protest Trump outside her LA office after she warned right-wing militia were planning to demonstrate there... but they never turned up

Maxine Waters supporters set fire to the American flag outside the Democratic firebrand's Los Angeles office Thursday as way to counter an anticipated protest by a far-right militia group who never showed.

A modest few dozen people made their rebellious appearance despite a previous request by the congresswoman that supporters not be baited into confrontation with the Oath Keepers.

South Los Angeles residents joined activist groups as well as union workers, church leaders and more for the midday demonstration.

Shocking photographs captured outside the field office show the crowd stomping on the flag before circling around the stars and stripes as they cheer when it erupts into flames.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although flag burning is a Constitutionally-protected form of free expression, as declared by the Supreme Court, I have to wonder, and upon looking at the images here, you might be wondering about the following issues also:

Did these demostrators really think that such a demonstration was actually going to improve the quality of their lives, as people who most likely live in the district Waters allegedly represents?!?

Or, did these demonstrators come from one of those "rent-a-mob" companies, which function nation-wide?!?

Craigslist ad: get paid $15/hour to protest at the Trump Rally

After these protests, were any one of these demonstrators chided by their employers for being late, coming back from lunch?!?

House Ethics Committee Charges Waters on Three Counts

And did you know... that Waters' district is so crime and gang-filled, that she won't even live there?!?

The Oath Keepers did not show up here, because they did not want to risk a violent confrontation, which, judging from the images here, is precisely what would have happened, had they shown up.

IDF strikes deep in Gaza after troops come under fire, amid talk of 4th Gaza war

The Israel Air Force launched a major wave of strikes across the Gaza Strip on Friday evening as a cabinet minister said Israel was preparing a massive response to Hamas’s failure to heed repeated Israeli warnings to end the violence along the Gaza border.

“At this time our aircraft are carrying out widespread attacks against terror targets belonging to Hamas in the Gaza Strip,” the IDF said, adding that this came after the “serious shooting incident against our forces,” referring to sniper fire at IDF troops during a riot on the border earlier in the day.

Following the strikes, rocket warning sirens wailed in communities around Gaza. At least two projectiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome system and another fell in an open field, the army said. There were no reports of projectiles falling in Israeli communities or injuries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the US is embroiled with faux Trumpophobic and Russiaphobic charges, stemming from the Helsinki summit between Trump and Putin, Tel Aviv may believe that this is, very possibly, the best possible time for the IDF to simply bomb evertying that moves in Gaza, including infants, women, and the medically fragile elderly, and figures Netanyahu can give his rationale for the genocide to Trump later.

There has already been a major call for the IDF to expect a military action against Gaza soon.

China and South Korea will displace the West as the world’s innovation leaders by 2029

Unless the United States takes action now to improve its innovation and commercialisation processes, it will lose its leading position by all measures of innovation by 2029, the authors of a new report have claimed. The outlook is similarly gloomy for the EU and the UK, with the study predicting that East Asian countries – mainly China and South Korea – are set to race past their western counterparts in patent grant numbers, patent quality growth, and return on R&D spend, among other metrics.

Jointly produced by the Center for Advancing Innovation (CAI) and PatSnap, the Innovation Arms Race 2018 report analyses a number of innovation indicators – such as patent effectiveness, patent efficiency and patent grants per capita - to determine which countries are the current, and will be the future, global innovation leaders. Among several important revelations, it finds that the US, EU and UK are clearly trailing behind as countries from Asia outperform those in the West.

More evidence that this country is on its way to becoming (if it is not already) a third-world nation.

Gaza Patients Appeal to the World to Save Their Lives

Patients in Gaza’s hospital’s organised a sit-in in central Gaza City to appeal to the international community, Quds Press reported, Tuesday.

The sit-in included those wounded by Israel as well as rights groups. It took place in front of Erez Crossing where Gazans can pass through to receive treatment in Israel or Palestinian hospitals in West Bank.

Speakers at the sit-in said that Gaza’s hospitals suffer from shortages in medicines, lab equipment and testing materials due to the Palestinian Authority (PA) sanctions and the Israel’s siege of the strip.

The patients called for the international community to save their lives by lifting the siege and sanctions.

Spokesman of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, Ashraf al-Qidra, called for an, “immediate and unconditional end of the suffering of the Gaza patients.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel should be ashamed that Gaza patients have to do this, in order to get attention to the appalling conditions of Gaza's hospitals; of course, all the politicians in Tel Aviv have, collectively, had their conscience removed before they took the job in the Knesset.

Donald Trump was Elected by Russia? Mass Dementia in the Western Establishment

Where to begin to analyze the madness of mainstream media in reaction to the Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki? By focusing on the individual, psychology has neglected the problem of mass insanity, which has now overwhelmed the United States establishment, its mass media and most of its copycat European subsidiaries. The individuals may be sane, but as a herd they are ready to leap off the cliff.

For the past two years, a particular power group has sought to explain away its loss of power – or rather, its loss of the Presidency, as it still holds a predominance of institutional power – by creation of a myth. Mainstream media is known for its herd behavior, and in this case the editors, commentators, journalists have talked themselves into a story that initially they themselves could hardly take seriously.

Donald Trump was elected by Russia?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The response to the Helsinki summit by Democrats and their presstitute cronies would be hysterically funny, if not for the serious accusations that have been raised against President Trump, to the point of labeling him a "traitor" for wanting to pursue a pathway toward building a better relationship with Russia, rather than a pathway toward war.

The real traitors to this country are those aligned with the military industrial complex, who are doing everything in their power to convince my brother and sister Americans to perceive war as the only way for the US government to achieve the geopolitical outcomes it wants, when there are certainly innumerable other ways to accomplish the US government's goals.

The Coming Coup to Overthrow President Trump: Sedition at the Highest Levels

The annual budget of the military/security complex is $1,000 billion. This vast sum is drawn from US taxpayers who have many unmet needs. To justify such an enormous budget a major enemy is required. The military/security complex and the media and politicians that the complex owns have designated Russia to be that enemy. The complex and its political and media agents will not permit Trump to normalize relations with Russia.

To prevent President Trump from reducing the dangerous tensions between nuclear powers that Washington has created, the military/security complex orchestrated Russiagate, a proven hoax, but believed by many due to its endless repetition. The military/security complex orchestrated the false indictments of 12 Russians. The military/security complex orchestrated the false arrest of Maria Butina, and so on and on.

Syria’s Assad Set to Recover Golan Frontier as Surrender Deal Agreed: Sources

President Bashar Assad is set to recover control of the Syrian frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights in a major victory over rebels who have agreed to surrender terms, sources on both sides said Thursday.

Backed by Russian air power and unopposed by Assad’s foreign adversaries, government forces have swept through southwestern Syria in the last month in one of the swiftest campaigns of the war, forcing surrender on massively outgunned rebels.

The campaign, which has already restored Assad’s control over a critical portion of the frontier with Jordan, marks another milestone in his efforts to recover control of the country fractured by more than seven years of conflict.

There was no government confirmation of the Qunaitra agreement. State media cited “reports” a deal had been reached. It was not clear when implementation would begin.

A copy of the agreement sent to Reuters by a rebel source said insurgents had negotiated the deal with Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions here are, to what lengths will Russia and Al Assad go to recover the Golan from Israel, and to what lengths Israel will go to keep it?!?

And the other question is, what can we do to keep the US from getting caught up in this fight, which could well turn into a hot war against Russia over the Golan?!?

FLASHBACK - WSJ: The Clinton Foundation, State and Kremlin Connections

Hillary Clinton touts her tenure as secretary of state as a time of hardheaded realism and “commercial diplomacy” that advanced American national and commercial interests. But her handling of a major technology transfer initiative at the heart of Washington’s effort to “reset” relations with Russia raises serious questions about her record. Far from enhancing American national interests, Mrs. Clinton’s efforts in this area may have substantially undermined U.S. national security.

Israel declares itself apartheid state, and gov’ts must hold it accountable — Omar Barghouti

This statement was released today by the Palestinian Boycott National Committee. “Israel effectively declares itself an apartheid state. Palestinian Civil Society Reacts to Israel’s Jewish Nation-State Law.”?

Today, Israeli lawmakers gave their final approval to the “Basic Law: Israel as the Nation State of the Jewish People” bill that unambiguously defines Israel as a state that belongs exclusively to the “Jewish people.” This is despite the fact that one in five citizens of Israel is an indigenous, non-Jewish Palestinian.

Palestinian members of the Israeli Knesset condemned the law, which enjoys constitutional power, as an “apartheid law.”

Adalah, a leading Palestinian human rights organization in Israel, describes how the law “affirms the principle of apartheid in housing, land and citizenship.” It concludes that “this law constitutionally sanctions institutionalized discrimination.”

Najwan Berekda, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, reacted:

We’ve gotten to a point where I’m seeing almost no intelligent debate about any serious issue.

Ironically, average Americans don’t care about the issue.

Cleric Sadr backs Iraq protests, calls for delay in government formation

Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, whose political bloc won Iraq’s May 12 election, called on all politicians to delay efforts to form a new government until the demands of protesters seeking better services in the south are met.

“The winning political parties in the election have to suspend all political dialogues for forming coalitions and until they meet protesters’ rightful demands,” Sadr tweeted, in his first public comments on unrest which has swept the south.

Sadr won the election by promising to alleviate poverty, create jobs and provide better services to Iraqis, many of whom have grown tired of a political elite they see as corrupt.

Thousands have protested in cities in the long neglected south, Iraq’s Shi’ite heartland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Al Sadr is making the absolutely correct move here, and the people who supported him, are getting the sense that they are finally being listened to, and their concerns addressed. Now, Al Sadr has to figure out how to do this, and that will be no easy task.

Staring out from the front cover of this week’s ‘Time’ magazine is a striking, unsettling picture of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump morphed into one. The hidden, yet unsubtle messaging behind the image is equally unsettling.

Time describes the image as “meaning to represent this particular moment in US foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland.” However, what it really represents is the way that a major US media outlet wants its readers to see these two men.

Sources affiliated to the dissidents also reported that the terrorists in Quneitra have reached the agreement with the army through Russian mediation.

A modest few dozen people made their rebellious appearance despite a previous request by the congresswoman that supporters not be baited into confrontation with the Oath Keepers.

South Los Angeles residents joined activist groups as well as union workers, church leaders and more for the midday demonstration.

Shocking photographs captured outside the field office show the crowd stomping on the flag before circling around the stars and stripes as they cheer when it erupts into flames.

The New Handmaids of the Warfare State – Dems and the Liberal Media

If you want to know why America is going to hell in a fiscal hand basket, it’s because the last vestige of opposition to the Warfare State and the fiscal muggings of the military/industry/intelligence complex has utterly evaporated.

We are referring, of course, to the delirious Russophobia that has overtaken the Dems and the liberal media since they had the daylights shocked out of them by the 2016 election – a state of mental derangement that has degenerated into downright hysteria since the Helsinki Summit.

It had already been the case that anti-Russian policy actions (e.g. sanctions) pass through the Congress with bipartisan greased lightening, and defense appropriations had exploded to the highest level in postwar history in real terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Deep State, the Democrats, and the Liberal Media, are all conspiring to insure that this country has a fiscal melt-down, and lay blame where it absolutely doesn't exist, to keep the military industrial complex rolling in dough, which will ultimately bankrupt this country.

When I saw President Trump in that press conference with President Putin, and they were talking about the potentials involved for peace, and peace won on the basis of hard-won, moral negotiations, President Trump (with whose administration I have a hug, and a (gentle, not hurting) punch relationship, was speaking .... for, and to, me.

I would believe that most sane Americans want peace, achieved through intelligent negotiations.

The Coming Coup to Overthrow President Trump: Sedition at the Highest Levels

The annual budget of the military/security complex is $1,000 billion. This vast sum is drawn from US taxpayers who have many unmet needs. To justify such an enormous budget a major enemy is required. The military/security complex and the media and politicians that the complex owns have designated Russia to be that enemy. The complex and its political and media agents will not permit Trump to normalize relations with Russia.

To prevent President Trump from reducing the dangerous tensions between nuclear powers that Washington has created, the military/security complex orchestrated Russiagate, a proven hoax, but believed by many due to its endless repetition. The military/security complex orchestrated the false indictments of 12 Russians. The military/security complex orchestrated the false arrest of Maria Butina, and so on and on.

Nearly All Clinton Emails Sent to ‘Foreign Hostile Power,’ FBI Did Nothing: Congressman

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) said virtually all emails of former State Secretary Hillary Clinton were sent to a “foreign hostile power.”

He made the claim at a House committee hearing on July 12, where FBI agent Peter Strzok testified about his role in the counterintelligence probe of alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

At the most heated point of the hearing, Gohmert asked Strzok about his meeting with people from the office of then-Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) Charles McCullough.

Gohmert said that investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, both from McCullough’s team, briefed Strzok and three other FBI officials about a forensic analysis of the Clinton emails by the ICIG. The analysis uncovered an anomaly in Clinton’s emails showing that virtually every email she sent was forwarded to an unauthorized foreign entity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The “foreign hostile power” has been identified as China.

Syria's Assad set to recover Golan frontier as surrender deal agreed: sources

President Bashar Assad is set to recover control of the Syrian frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights in a major victory over rebels who have agreed to surrender terms, sources on both sides said Thursday.

Backed by Russian air power and unopposed by Assad's foreign adversaries, government forces have swept through southwestern Syria in the last month in one of the swiftest campaigns of the war, forcing surrender on massively outgunned rebels.

The campaign, which has already restored Assad's control over a critical portion of the frontier with Jordan, marks another milestone in his efforts to recover control of the country fractured by more than seven years of conflict.

Major Escalation in Gaza: Israel Launches Massive Attack After Hamas Snipers Fire at Troops

The Israel Defense Forces launched a massive attack on the Gaza Strip late Friday evening, following an exchange of fire between Israeli troops and Hamas members in the Gaza Strip that left four militants dead.

Hamas' armed wing, Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, confirmed that the four who were killed were members of the organization.

The Israeli army stated that "at this hour, IDF jet planes started an extensive attack on terror targets related to the Hamas terror organization throughout the Gaza Strip."

The military said the attack came in response to "a grave shooting incident against our forces."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Other reports way that at least one IDF soldier was also killed.

AP Photos: Weeks later, Hawaii volcano gushes on

A tour boat accident has drawn renewed attention to Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, but for Big Island residents the erupting lava has been an ever-present force for more than two months.

Molten rock is blasting from one last eruption site, a large cinder cone in a hard-hit neighborhood where new volcanic cracks first opened on May 3. It’s sending huge volumes of lava snaking to the ocean miles away.

Breaking: More Evidence Uncovered Shows Obama Spied on Trump Illegally as Early as 2015

More evidence uncovered that shows that Obama team illegally spied on the Trump team as early as 2015.
As we reported previously, in early June the US Senate released over 500 pages of information related to the Spygate scandal. Hidden in the information were unredacted Strzok – Page texts that show the FBI initiated actions to insert multiple spies in the Trump campaign in December 2015.

Also, according to far left LA Times, Comey stated in March of 2017 under oath that the FBI investigation into the Trump – Russia scandal started in July 2016. But Comey appears to have lied about this.

A text message released by the US Senate showed words that were redacted when the FBI released the same texts long ago. The texts show evidence of collusion and wrongdoing by Obama’s FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I completely unsurprised at this development?!?

I say this because President Obama has an industrial-strength penchant for "sneaky", as evidenced by his throwing more US servicement into Yemen under his watch, at the behest of the Saudi Royal Family and government, with barely a yawn from the alleged US press about it, and to this day, the US presstitutes will not use the words "war crimes" to describe the US military's enabling of Saudi forces here.

Democrats vow to vote against their own bill to abolish ICE

On July 12, three liberal Democrats—Representatives Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, Parmila Jayapal of Washington and Adriano Espaillat of New York—introduced a bill to formally abolish the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). Within 48 hours, the bill was exposed as a cynical maneuver when Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy called the Democrats’ bluff by announcing that he would bring their legislation to a vote later this month.

The response of the Democrats was to declare that they would vote “no” on their own bill. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which had previously refused to take a position on the bill, joined in declaring that its members would vote against the legislation.

Loomer Exposes Keith Ellison for Not Having Law License, MSM Ignores

The mainstream press is ignoring a report from Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer about Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who is running for Minnesota Attorney General without a law license.

“As your next attorney general, I will be a people’s lawyer who will hold those in power accountable when they step on your rights — whether that’s Monsanto telling you how to raise your crops, Navient cheating student loan borrowers out of more money, or the federal government infringing upon health care, a woman’s right to choose, or the human and civil rights of all,” Ellison wrote in The Minneapolis Star Tribune, the state’s main newspaper.

“This is work I have been doing my whole life, from 16 years as a civil rights lawyer to more than a decade legislating on behalf of Minnesota consumers, workers and families,” Ellison continued.

Trump impeachment push emerges as next Dem litmus test

Liberal lawmakers and pundits, emboldened by bipartisan outrage over President Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, have kicked up calls to pursue impeachment -- indicating the issue could fast become the next litmus test for Democratic candidates.

The discussion follows the recent political frenzy over calls to "abolish" Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). That effort briefly served as a similar litmus test in the wake of Trump's zero-tolerance immigration policy, which led to family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The GOP-controlled House countered on Wednesday with a vote on a resolution expressing support for ICE, effectively daring Democrats to go on the record with opposition to the agency. The measure passed, with a total of 133 Democratic representatives voting "present" -- amounting to a procedural refusal to take a position despite weeks of heated anti-ICE rhetoric from party leaders.

Opinion: One FBI text message in Russia probe that should alarm every American

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you.

Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges.

It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers of their office to “stop” Trump from becoming president. The only question is whether any official acts they took in the Russia collusion probe were driven by those sentiments.

The Justice Department’s inspector general is endeavoring to answer that question.

Trump plans to invite Putin to Washington this fall

President Donald Trump asked his national security adviser to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington this fall, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday afternoon.

The statement comes after Trump teased a second meeting with Putin on Twitter earlier in the day. Sanders says the president tasked National Security Adviser John Bolton with extending an invitation to the Russian leader.

"In Helsinki, @POTUS agreed to ongoing working level dialogue between the two security council staffs. President Trump asked @AmbJohnBolton to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway," Sanders said in a tweet.

Trump wrote online Thursday that he is looking forward to a second sitdown with Putin, insisting that his much-criticized bilateral meeting with him on Monday was in fact a “great success” that the media have unfairly covered negatively.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GOOD! In my world, I will take honest negotiations over war, any time.

WATCH: ROAD RAGING COP BEATS INNOCENT CANCER PATIENT FOR TELLING HIM TO SLOW DOWN

A deeply disturbing video has sparked an internal investigation into an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officer after he was seen throwing an innocent man — who is recovering from brain cancer — to the ground and savagely beating him. The cop was in an apparent fit of road rage and the incident was captured on surveillance footage.

The disturbing video showed the unprovoked assault of Tom Trickle as he stood in his driveway on West Banta Road Thursday waiting for the delivery of a refrigerator.

According to several of the residents in the area, people often speed down West Banta despite it being a residential street. The IMPD officer was one of these alleged speeders.

On Thursday, the unnamed officer was on patrol in plainclothes in an unmarked car as he allegedly came flying down the road when he was spotted by Trickle.

“I think he was doing every bit of over fifty miles per hour,” said Trickle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will continue to post stories like this, until our (alleged) Attorney General Jeff Sessions actually does his job, and starts preventing behaviour like this against civilians by cops.

The statistics bear out the reality: there is no "war on cops" in this country; there is, however, a war against citizens by the people who are, allegedly, supposed to defend and protect them.

Trump Stands His Ground on Putin

The worst-case scenario would be that the establishment actually believes the nonsense it is spouting. But that is hard to credit. Like the boy who cried “Wolf!” the establishment has cried “Fascist!” too many times to be taken seriously.

A month ago, the never-Trumpers were comparing the separation of immigrant kids from detained adults, who brought them to the U.S. illegally, to FDR’s concentration camps for Japanese-Americans.

Some commentators equated the separations to what the Nazis did at Auschwitz.

If the establishment truly believed this nonsense, it would be an unacceptable security risk to let them near the levers of power ever again.

Using Occam’s razor, the real explanation for this behavior is the simplest one: America’s elites have been driven over the edge by Trump’s successes and their failure to block him.

Israeli Conquest of Gaza Looms as IDF Told to Prepare to “Conquer” Gaza

Israel’s government has instructed the country’s military to prepare for a major military offensive against the Gaza Strip if the launching of “incendiary kites and balloons” over the Gaza-Israel border is not stopped by this Friday. If those objects continue to cross the border, Israel may decide it has “no choice” but to embark on a military campaign intended to “conquer all of Gaza,” according to a report that aired on Israel’s Channel 10 News on Tuesday and was cited by the Times of Israel.

WHILE RICHEST ENJOY 'YACHTS THAT HAVE TINY YACHTS INSIDE,' ESTIMATED 400,000 PEOPLE IN US SUFFERING UNDER 'MODERN SLAVERY'

While the nation's richest and most powerful continue to enjoy the unparalleled fruits of a "New Guilded Age"—including those who have "yachts that have tiny yachts inside"them—a new report reveals that an estimated 400,000 people living in the United States live under forced servitude characterized as nothing less than "modern slavery."

According to the 2018 Global Slavery Index, published annually by the Walk Free Foundation, there are over 40 million people worldwide living under such conditions, including "one in every 800" Americans.

"The United States is one of the most advanced countries in the world yet has more than 400,000 modern slaves working under forced labor conditions," said Andrew Forrest, founder of the Walk Free Foundation. "This is a truly staggering statistic and demonstrates just how substantial this issue is globally."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And we cannot forget how the US citizens' love of cheap consumer goods fuels these conditions in countries which makes them.

THE ACLU HAS BASICALLY QUIT DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION

The American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that once so rigidly adhered to the neutral principles in the Constitution that it famously defended the right of a neo-Nazi group to march through the Jewish-laden Chicago suburb of Skokie, has been increasingly rejiggering its positions to correspond with the Left’s hard lurch towards cafeteria constitutionalism.

USS Liberty Survivor Named US Delegate on Gaza Flotilla

Joe Meadors, a survivor of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, has joined the 2018 Gaza Freedom Flotilla as the delegate from the United States. He will board the Al Awda (The Return), which left Corisca Sunday night for the final 1,000 miles to Gaza. Al Awda is one of four boats on the 75-day voyage from Scandinavia.

Meadors was a signalman on the bridge of the USS Liberty, a surveillance vessel operating in international waters of the Mediterranean Sea near Gaza during the 1967 Six-Day Arab-Israreli war.

Israeli war planes and torpedo boats attacked the vessel, killing 34 U.S. sailors and wounding 174 crew members.

UIC forms partnership with Central Intelligence Agency

The University of Illinois at Chicago has launched a new partnership with the Central Intelligence Agency that will enhance student career opportunities at the university, officials recently announced.

UIC will receive resources to support academic enrichment and workforce development activities for students. The new pilot partnership, called the Signature School Program, will also draw on UIC’s rich academic programs, the graduation rate of its students, as well as the diversity of its student population.

The agreement “will establish a solid partnership between UIC and the CIA and provide our students a greater breadth of career opportunities,” said UIC Chancellor Michael Amiridis. “The Signature School Program will provide UIC students with direct access to careers and internships within the agency for many years to come. It’s a win-win situation for both of us.”

PENTAGON: US-BACKED MILITIAS HOLDING 600 FOREIGN FIGHTERS IN CUSTODY

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are currently holding nearly 600 foreign fighters in custody, the Pentagon told reporters yesterday.

“As of July 2018 there are nearly 600 Foreign Terrorist Fighters from more than 40 countries in SDF custody,” Pentagon spokesman Navy Commander Sean Robertson said, adding that the US military was also aware of more than 400 Syrian nationals who were also being detained by the SDF.

A US military official with the coalition told CNN that of the foreign fighters in detention, some 40 are from Russia, with around a dozen from Germany and France respectively.

The fate of foreign fighters has been subject to heightened debate since the establishment of Daesh in Syria and Iraq. US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis previously emphasised that the fighters’ countries of origins needed to take responsibility for them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, Sec-Def Mattis; the countries of origin did not encourage these men to fight the duly elected Syrian government and their militaries; the US government did that!!

And if political resolutions between these militia and the Syrian government can be facilitated, so much the better for everyone.
