The New Sheriff in Town

Last month, Michael White was acquitted of voluntary manslaughter in the stabbing of Sean Schellenger.

White, who is black, approached and began challenging the 37-year-old white man while he was engaged in a traffic dispute with an unrelated driver in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square.

Witnesses said White and Schellenger both squared up for a fist fight, only for White to pull out a knife and stab the unarmed man in the back with a 12 inch knife. Schellenger died.

The incident was caught on tape, which police used as evidence to charge White with first degree murder.

However, when the races of the two men became public, anti-white activists began a social media campaign claiming White used his weapon in self-defense before any of the facts in the case had come out. It’s worth noting that Pennsylvania is not a Stand-Your-Ground state.

The District Attorney, a Jewish lawyer named Larry Krasner, then dropped the charges multiple times until arriving at voluntary manslaughter, which put White’s predictable defense on a silver platter.

Nobody disputed that White had killed Schellenger with an illegal knife, but instead that the dead victim was “racist,” so he deserved it. None of the multiple witnesses at the scene ever substantiated White’s claim that Schellenger racially abused him.

His defense team made it up so that black jurors would hang the verdict. When proving intent to kill under this specific statute eluded the prosecution, he was acquitted.

Larry Krasner is accused of throwing the case.

The George Soros Prosecutor

Krasner, who once joked that he was too extreme to ever be elected chief prosecutor even in a deep blue city, won the DA’s race in Philadelphia in 2017 by outspending all of his opponents by large amounts of money.

Krasner dedicated almost $2 million dollars to this small race. He campaigned against white privilege and “institutional racism,” with a plan to legalize a whole multitude of quality of life offenses like defecating in the street, shoplifting and doing drugs in public,as well as reducing the prison population, which he claims is large due to hate and bigotry.

On his own, Krasner would’ve only had a few hundred thousand dollars raised for his long shot,

‘Can you imagine our troops coming to France without invitation?’ Bashar Assad blasts French ‘occupation’ of Syria

‘can-you-imagine-our-troops-coming-to-france-without-invitation?’-bashar-assad-blasts-french-‘occupation’-of-syria

28-11-19 01:59:00,

There’s no major difference between supporting terrorism on Syrian soil and sending troops there without formal approval from its government, Bashar Assad said as he lambasted France’s role in Syria’s civil war.

Syria has “come a long way” toward defeating much of the terrorist insurgency on its soil, but pockets of resistance still remain as jihadists are receiving support from Turkey and Western countries, Bashar Assad told Paris Match magazine, singling out the US, the UK and “especially France.”

France has joined the US-led anti-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) coalition, providing air support and deploying special forces to Syria. But for Assad, the French intervention amounted to an “occupation,” as Paris – like its major NATO ally Washington – failed to secure Damascus’ authorization of the mission.

Do you frankly think that we can send Syrian forces to fight terrorism in France without being invited by the French government? International law governs the behavior of states in the world, not [their] intentions.

Now, when foreign forces came to Syria without being invited by the legitimate government, “it is [called] occupation,” the Syrian president insisted, adding, “there is not a big difference between supporting terrorism and deploying the military to occupy a country.”

Dubbed Operation Chammal, the French deployment was, officially, to carry out reconnaissance flights and aid Kurdish and Arab fighters in Syria. At peak times, France’s assets in the Middle East included a Charles de Gaulle carrier strike group, a fighter jet squadron as well as several marine units on the ground.

The interview came on the back of the Syrian army’s advances in the northern province of Idlib. The troops are now trying to fight their way toward the last militant-held towns along the strategic Damascus-Aleppo highway.

Tehran slams France’s ‘irresponsible’ suggestion to trigger nuclear deal mechanism that could lead to UN sanctions on Iran

tehran-slams-france’s-‘irresponsible’-suggestion-to-trigger-nuclear-deal-mechanism-that-could-lead-to-un-sanctions-on-iran

28-11-19 01:58:00,

France’s idea to trigger a provision in the nuclear deal that could result in UN-imposed sanctions against Iran has no merit, Tehran argued, noting that it breached the accord only after Washington’s exit from the agreement.

“Iran’s scaling back of its nuclear commitments was implementation of its legal rights to react to America’s illegal and unilateral exit of the deal and the European parties’ failure to fulfill their obligations,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Thursday.

Under these circumstances… such remarks by the French official are irresponsible and not constructive.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Thursday that France should consider implementing a dispute resolution clause that could mandate UN sanctions on Iran for putting “dents” in the 2015 deal.

US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the pact last year. Since then, Washington has imposed increasingly harsh sanctions on Tehran. European signatories have worked to preserve the deal, which places restrictions on Iran’s uranium enrichment program in exchange for sanctions relief. However, Europe has so far failed. Britain, France and Germany have sought to salvage the pact, under which Iran undertook to curtail its uranium enrichment program in return for relief from crippling sanctions. However, Europe has so far been reluctant to bypass US sanctions.

Why First Nations People Regard Thanksgiving Day as a National Day of Mourning – Global Research

“The Sioux (aka Lakota) Indians of Minnesota must be exterminated or driven forever beyond the borders of the state.” – Minnesota Governor Alexander Ramsey

We turkey-celebrating, obese, sports-addicted, shop-until-you-drop, historically-illiterate couch potatoes are all beneficiaries of the acts of our guilty ancestors who may have been unaware perpetrators of the crimes against humanity that occurred during the never-ending, shameful 500 year-long history of genocide, ethnic cleansing, colonizing and occupation of the people and the land that rightfully belonged the aboriginal tribes that had inhabited North, Central and South America for thousands of years before Columbus (who had no clue as to where he was) and his sex-starved sailors disembarked from their stinking ships and started pillaging the land and raping the most nubile female inhabitants back in 1492. (Soon cutting off the hands of  those  who couldn’t bring in their quota of gold from precious metal-less mines.)

Thus started the systematic genocide against the aboriginal, non-white people that led eventually – and perhaps inevitably – to the cruelty and crimes against humanity that enslaved millions of black Africans, many of whom died in chains even before they reached this so-called “promised land”.

In many cases the psychopathic killer-conquistadors that followed Columbus, were initially welcomed, tolerated and even nurtured (a la the mythical First Thanksgiving) – rather than being killed off as the criminal invaders that they were. Trusting the intruders to return their hospitality – in the spirit of the Christian Golden Rule – turned out to have been a huge mistake, for within decades the slaughter began, performed in the name of Christ – with the blessings of the accompanying priests whose mission was to convert the heathen to Christianity  under threat of death.

Most of our European ancestors were greatly enriched by the US Army’s massacres, the occupation and theft of their land, the exploitation of the resources, the colonization and the destruction of their way of life. We pink-skinned progeny have been conditioned to believe way too many myths about our obfuscated history. Thanks to our cunningly censored history books and the myths learned in Sunday School over the ages, we have been led to believe the story about the “nice” Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620 and who gratefully shared a feast with their new friendly Indian neighbors (who were soon to be driven off their land and annihilated by the Puritan so-called “christians” and others that soon followed).

Attacking The Source: The Establishment Loyalist’s Favorite Online Tactic

attacking-the-source:-the-establishment-loyalist’s-favorite-online-tactic

28-11-19 08:59:00,

If you’re skeptical of western power structures and you’ve ever engaged in online political debate for any length of time, the following has definitely happened to you.

You find yourself going back and forth with one of those high-confidence, low-information establishment types who’s promulgating a dubious mainstream narrative, whether that be about politics, war, Julian Assange, or whatever. At some point they make an assertion which you know to be false–publicly available information invalidates the claim they’re making.

“I’ve got them now!” you think to yourself, if you’re new to this sort of thing. Then you share a link to an article or video which makes a well-sourced, independently verifiable case for the point you are trying to make.

Then, the inevitable happens.

“LMAO! That outlet!” they scoff in response. “That outlet is propaganda/fake news/conspiracy theory trash!”

Or something to that effect. You’ll encounter this tactic over and over and over again if you continually engage in online political discourse with people who don’t agree with you. It doesn’t matter if you’re literally just linking to an interview featuring some public figure saying a thing you’d claimed they said. It doesn’t matter if you’re linking to a WikiLeaks publication of a verified authentic document. Unless you’re linking to CNN/Fox News (whichever fits the preferred ideology of the establishment loyalist you’re debating), they’ll bleat “fake news!” or “propaganda!” or “Russia!” as though that in and of itself magically invalidates the point you’re trying to make.

And of course it doesn’t. What they are doing is called attacking the source, also known as an ad hominem, and it’s a very basic logical fallacy.

Most people are familiar with the term “ad hominem”, but they usually think about it in terms of merely hurling verbal insults at people. What it actually means is attacking the source of the argument rather than attacking the argument itself in a way that avoids dealing with the question of whether or not the argument itself is true. It’s a logical fallacy because it’s used to deliberately obfuscate the goal of a logical conclusion to the debate.

“An ad hominem is more than just an insult,” explains David Ferrer for The Quad.

With the right-wing coup in Bolivia nearly complete, the junta is hunting down the last remaining dissidents

28-11-19 08:14:00,

ShareTweet

On the day of my scheduled interview with a leftist Bolivian journalist, I learned that he had been disappeared. Every outspoken opponent of the military junta is a target and subjected to charges of sedition.
By Wyatt Reed

La Paz, Bolivia – A brutal military junta that seized power from Bolivia’s democratically elected President Evo Morales is violently repressing a working-class indigenous-led uprising, and the country is rapidly falling under its control.

Soldiers in military fatigues prowl the streets, enforcing a series of choke points around the seat of power. Anyone perceived as standing against the status quo is now subject to being arrested on charges of sedition or terrorism. Dissident journalists and Morales sympathizers have been forced into hiding, leaving the house only when necessary. 

“It’s a fascist dictatorship, there’s no hiding it,” says Federico Koba, a left-wing journalist who asked that I not use his real name for fear of arrest. “There are paramilitary agents going around the city taking pictures and pinpointing who’s who. Who is a leader, who is recording the protests, who is recording the repression.”

I met with Koba, an activist and journalist with the leftist news site La Resistencia Bolivia, on the evening of November 24th. I had initially planned to meet with his co-worker, who asked that I refer to him by the pseudonym of Carlos Mujica because he too feared being jailed for his activism. 

But on the day of our scheduled interview, Mujica never showed up. He was lying low, having had his house searched and ransacked by police the night before the coup.

Hours later, I received a brief message from him: “Bro, I can’t talk right now. I’m in jail.”

Mujica’s friends went to every prison in the city looking for him, but he was nowhere to be found. The next day, he was released after an intense interrogation session in an unlisted facility. He immediately went into hiding, disconnecting himself completely from social media, which his peers now believe has been compromised by the coup regime.

The atmosphere was grim when I met with Koba and some of his colleagues. “We know for sure we’re on a list – we’ve seen it,

Julian Assange will ‘disappear for the rest of his life’ inside ‘inhumane’ US prison, UN envoy warns… if he makes it that far

julian-assange-will-‘disappear-for-the-rest-of-his-life’-inside-‘inhumane’-us-prison,-un-envoy-warns…-if-he-makes-it-that-far

27-11-19 07:31:00,

The UN rapporteur on torture has accused British and American authorities of waging a one-sided war against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, “violating due process at every step,” as Assange’s condition in prison deteriorates.

Speaking at a demonstration in Berlin on Wednesday, rapporteur Nils Melzer told RT that if the judicial institutions prosecuting Assange were “doing their job according to the law,” then they would take the WikiLeaks head’s declining health into account in their extradition efforts. However, Melzer does not expect any reprieve for Assange.

The whole system is skewed against him. It’s not a case of prosecution, it’s a case of persecution, and that’s how persecution works.

Since his forced eviction from London’s Ecuadorian embassy in April, Assange has languished in Belmarsh Prison, first facing extradition to Sweden for a since-dropped sexual assault case, and now to the United States, where he faces 175 years in prison if found guilty of espionage. The spying charges stem from his publication of classified military documents, detailing alleged war crimes by US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

‘Mr Assange could die in prison. There is no time to lose’ – over 60 medics in open letter to UK govt.

Melzer has sounded the alarm about the conditions of Assange’s detention before, accusing British authorities of “psychological torture,” and warning that he could face further torture if extradited to the US. The rapporteur is not alone in raising these concerns either. In an open letter addressed to British Home Secretary Priti Patel on Monday, over 60 medical professionals from across the world voiced their concern over the physical and mental health of the publisher, warning that “Mr. Assange could die in prison.”

Melzer met Assange in prison six months ago, and described his situation as “critical.” Since then, the torture envoy said that the WikiLeaks founder’s conditions have been “getting more oppressive and there’s more intense surveillance and stricter isolation.”

During Melzer’s visit, Assange was kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours per day, and was denied access to the prison’s library and gym. He is reportedly suffering from depression,

European Central Banks Are Slowly Preparing For Plan B: Gold

european-central-banks-are-slowly-preparing-for-plan-b:-gold

27-11-19 12:06:00,

Written by Jan Nieuwenhuijs of Voima,

It was long believed in the gold space that Western central banks are against gold, but things have changed, for quite some years now. Instead of discouraging people from buying gold, or convincing them that gold is an irrelevant asset, many of these central banks are increasingly honest about the true properties of this monetary metal. Stating that gold is the ultimate store of value, that it preserves its purchasing power through time and is a global means of payment. Such statements, combined with actions that will be discussed below, reveal that more and more central banks are preparing for plan B.

The Bundesbank (the German central bank) published a book last year named Germany’s Gold. In the introduction, written by the President of the Bundesbank Jens Weidmann, the view of this bank leaves no room for interpretation. Weidmann writes (emphasis mine):

Ask anyone in Germany what they associate with gold and, more often than not, they will say that it is synonymous with enduring value and economic prosperity.

Ask us at the Bundesbank what our gold holdings mean for us and we will tell you that, first and foremost, they make up a very large share of Germany’s reserve assets … [and they] are a major anchor underpinning confidence in the intrinsic value of the Bundesbank’s balance sheet.

The Bundesbank produced this publication to give a detailed account, the first of its kind, of how gold has grown in importance over the course of history, first as medium of payment, later as the bedrock of stability for the international monetary system.

Finally got my hands on an English copy of Gold, published by the German central bank. Something tells me the Bundesbank is pro gold.

For Keynesians these comments might read like the Bundesbank (BuBa) is a “goldbug.” Its remarks, however, are simply common sense. Gold has enduring value. The world over it is associated with economic prosperity.

The Problem of Wikipedia

Paul Craig Roberts

Over the course of my life I have watched integrity shrivel up and die everywhere in the Western world. It is not like it was ever really abundant, but there was a goodly amount of it, and it had authority. People, especially those in public life, weren’t shameless as they are today.

In the past decade I have watched the disappearance of free speech. An independent media disappeared in the last year of the Clinton regime when 6 mega-corporations were permitted to concentrate 90% of the media into their hands. Today free speech protected in the US Constitution is not valued as highly as the “feelings” of self-described “victim groups” who are offended by everything from truthful statements to traditional figures of speech. Even scientific discussion of the genetic basis of intelligence gives “offense” as does the use of gender-specific pronouns such as he and she.

Obviously false statements can be self-declared as true as when a biological male declares himself female and competes in women’s sports. Those who object to the obvious charade are declared “transphobic” and have to apologize. Sometimes they are fired for insisting on biological fact.

Exercising press freedom, as Julian Assange did, today brings charges of espionage and is misrepresented as a threat to national security. The media speak with the same voice, and it is the voice that serves the ruling elites. Truth is nowhere in the picture. The only purpose of the media today is to control the explanations for the elites. The media throughout the Western world is merely a Ministry of Propaganda. The young, never having experienced a free press or free speech, do not know what they are.

America today is a country that my parents and my grandparents would not recognize. If they were to be resurrected, they would think they were living in George Orwell’s 1984. And they would be.

I, and others of my generation, which is now passing away, are unable to accommodate The Matrix that elites and their media whores have created for the peoples of the Western world. Consequently, we are marginalized, despite our accomplishments and our grand honors, and if we persist we are libeled and slandered.

Narrative Managers Faceplant In Hilarious OPCW Scandal Spin Job

narrative-managers-faceplant-in-hilarious-opcw-scandal-spin-job

27-11-19 08:24:00,

Imperialist propaganda firm Bellingcat has published a response to the ever-expanding OPCW scandal, and it’s got to be seen to be believed.

Before we begin I should highlight that Bellingcat is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy, which according to its own cofounder was set up to do overtly what the CIA had previously been doing covertly, namely orchestrating narrative management geared toward the elimination of governments which refuse to comply with US interests. NED is funded directly by the US government, which means that Bellingcat is funded by the US government via an organization set up to promote imperialist regime change agendas. Bellingcat is also funded by Open Society Foundations, another imperialist narrative management operation.

Syria has been the target of what may be the most sophisticated propaganda campaign in history, and Bellingcat has been consistently rallying behind even the most transparently ridiculous tools of this campaign. This includes the notorious Bana Alabed psyop which at its height saw CNN staging a fake, scripted interview featuring a seven year-old girl assigning blame to Bashar al-Assad for an alleged sarin gas attack in Khan Shaykhun. Bellingcat’s stellar investigative work (which has been praised in fawning puff pieces by mainstream outlets like The Guardian and The New Yorker) concluded that this obvious propaganda construct was in fact nothing other than a little girl and her mother independently composing viral tweets, giving interviews and authoring books about how the Syrian government must be toppled via western interventionism.

Bellingcat’s latest phenomenal report on how you’re supposed to think about important geopolitical disputes, titled “Emails And Reading Comprehension: OPCW Douma Coverage Misses Crucial Facts“, addresses the leaked OPCW email which was recently published by WikiLeaks and various other outlets revealing that the OPCW omitted crucial information from its Douma report which indicated that a chemical weapons attack was unlikely to have occurred. I encourage you to go and check out Bellingcat’s new masterpiece for yourself. Don’t worry about giving them clicks; that’s not where they get their money.

The first thing you’ll notice about Bellingcat’s article is that at no point does it even attempt to address the actual inflammatory comments within it,

The End of the Rule of Law – Global Research

the-end-of-the-rule-of-law-–-global-research

26-11-19 04:04:00,

Bruce Fein, a former senior official in the Department of Justice and a constitutional scholar, has identified 12 impeachable offenses committed by Donald Trump. But, as he notes, many of these constitutional violations are not unique to the Trump administration. They have been normalized by Democratic and Republican administrations. These long-standing violations are, for this reason, ignored by Democratic Party leaders seeking to impeach the president. They have chosen to focus exclusively on Trump’s attempt to get the Ukrainian president to open an investigation of Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in exchange for $400 million in U.S. military aid and a visit by the Ukrainian leader to the White House. Ignoring these institutionalized violations during the impeachment inquiry, Fein fears, would legitimate them and lead to the death of democracy.

In a letter on Friday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, also signed by Ralph Nader and Louis Fisher, Fein warns that Trump is “shattering our entire constitutional order.” He lists as the president’s most serious constitutional violations the “defiance of congressional subpoenas and oversight; spending billions of dollars on a southern border wall not appropriated for that purpose; continuing or expanding presidential wars not declared by Congress; exercising line-item veto power; flouting the Emoluments Clause; and, playing prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner to kill any person on the planet based on secret, unsubstantiated information.” But he also notes that many of these violations are not unique to Trump and were also carried out by Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

“Many of the Democrats in the past have been complicit in these violations,” Fein said when I reached him by phone in Washington, D.C. “They have unclean hands. They have acquiesced in illegal surveillance, as revealed by Edward Snowden. The most serious constitutional violations are the ones that are institutional usurpations. These usurpations [by both parties] have permanently weakened, if not eviscerated, the power of the legislature versus the executive.”

“We have a Congress whose members, by and large, do not want the responsibilities the Constitution entrusts them with,” Fein continued. “They like to give away everything to the president and then clamor if something goes bad. The most worrisome constitutional violations are, unfortunately, ones many members of Congress rejoice in.

US Fed is a ‘mortician pumping formaldehyde’ into economy – RT’s Keiser Report

us-fed-is-a-‘mortician-pumping-formaldehyde’-into-economy-–-rt’s-keiser-report

26-11-19 04:02:00,

International rating agency Moody’s has issued a debt downgrade warning to the entire world due to deepening global geopolitical uncertainty and risks.

RT’s Keiser Report discusses the issue, noting that despite the rising turmoil the US Federal Reserve continues with its money-printing.

“Certainly, we do have a zombie economy thanks to the never-ending parade of free money from the Fed and the growing pile of debt,” says Stacy Herbert. She recalls the words of Fed Chair Jerome Powell, who said recently “the debt is growing faster than the economy.”

Max Keiser says that it reminds him of “the story of a mortician who is pumping formaldehyde into the corpse saying ‘no matter how much formaldehyde I pump into this corpse the breathing does not get any better.”’

Warren Buffett and Jamie Diamond could also be viewed as the mortician, he says, “as they get paid to inject formaldehyde into the corpse and they get paid hundreds of billions of dollars to do that job.”

The global economy, including the US economy, died in 2008 full stop, Max continues. “There was the credit crunch and the solution was to pump formaldehyde, what is called money, but in fact it is debt…”

According to him, all the QE, money printing, and bailouts represent debt.

The Problem with Israeli Settlements Is Not that They Are Illegal. It’s that They Are Immoral. – Global Research

the-problem-with-israeli-settlements-is-not-that-they-are-illegal-it’s-that-they-are-immoral.-–-global-research

26-11-19 03:59:00,

Yesterday the Trump administration said Israeli settlements in the West Bank don’t violate international law. That’s absurd. Among international lawyers, the consensus that settlements are illegal rivals the consensus among international scientists that humans contribute to climate change. As UCLA’s Dov Waxman has pointed out, the legal advisor to Israel’s own foreign ministry admitted that “civilian settlement in the administered territories contravenes explicit provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention” after Israel conquered the West Bank in 1967.

But critics who condemn the Trump administration for disregarding international law are missing the deeper point. So are critics who condemn it for undermining the two-state solution.

Fundamentally, the problem with settlements is neither legal nor geopolitical. It is moral. Israeli settlements in the West Bank are institutionalized expressions of bigotry. The American and Israeli politicians who legitimize them are the moral equivalent of those politicians who legitimized Jim Crow. It’s time they be treated as such.

Settlements only exist because Jews and Palestinians in the West Bank live under a different law. Jews are Israeli citizens: They can vote for the government that controls every square inch of the West Bank. Palestinians are Israeli subjects: Permanently barred because of their ethnicity and religion from citizenship in the country in which they live. (Yes, Palestinians have at times voted for the Palestinian Authority. But the PA is not a government; it is Israel’s subcontractor. PA officials — like all West Bank Palestinians — need Israeli permission to travel from one part of the West Bank to another).

Because the Israeli government controls the West Bank, and because it is accountable to the Jews — but not the Palestinians — who live there, it has spent the last half-century seizing land on which Palestinians live and giving it to Jews. Employing an 1858 Ottoman law, it has declared much of the West Bank “state land” and then transferred that supposedly ownerless territory to Jewish settlements. According to data from Israel’s own civil administration, almost 40% of the land on which settlements reside was once owned by individual Palestinians.

Big deal, some settlement defenders argue: Lots of people live on stolen land. If a community built on land seized by force is morally illegitimate,

Facial Recognition “Robocops” See Through Our Clothes And Listen To Our Phone Calls – Activist Post

facial-recognition-“robocops”-see-through-our-clothes-and-listen-to-our-phone-calls-–-activist-post

26-11-19 03:55:00,

By MassPrivateI

It has been six months, since I informed the public about the dangers of police Knightscope robots that look an awful lot like Doctor Who’s infamous Daleks.

In my article I warned people that police would use Knightscope’s thermal imaging cameras to identify what is under everyone’s clothes. (To learn more about public imaging scanners click here.)

A recent article in One Zero revealed that Knightscope has turned their Robocops into mobile facial recognition devices that can also blacklist people.

credit: One Zero

One presentation slide features the company’s facial recognition capabilities, indicating that the company can surface a known person’s name, the similarity of the person’s face compared to a known image, and a log of other identities that the robot has seen.

It is bad enough that the feds and police use secret blacklists, but it is an entirely different story when private companies like Knightscope use facial recognition to do the same thing.

What we are seeing is a total transformation of our legal system run by corporate interests.

One Zero revealed that Knightscope can label someone a person of interest with terms like, “causes trouble or sketchy dude.

Thesaurus.com describes ’causes trouble’ as, “challenging the status quo, to disagree or to protest.”

If law enforcement is using Robocops to blacklist people for challenging the status quo or disagreeing with our government then everyone should stand up and take notice.

The article also indicated that Knightscope has access to things like domestic violence records, drivers license suspensions, custody disputes, and of course hostile terminations.

Giving corporations access to court records and license plate information at the touch of a button is like opening all the flood gates of the Panama Canal at once and hoping nothing catastrophic happens.

Neue Recherchen zeigen: Die Suchergebnisse auf «Google» werden auch händisch bearbeitet.

Tobias Tscherrig / 26. Nov 2019 –

«Google» behauptete stets, seine Algorithmen seien objektiv. Recherchen zeigen: Der Internet-Riese greift in Suchergebnisse ein.

Immer wieder stand «Google» in der Vergangenheit wegen problematischen Suchergebnissen wie etwa Falschinformationen oder ethisch und moralisch fragwürdigen Einträgen, die die Suchmaschine nach einer Anfrage auf den ersten Plätzen ausspuckt, in der Kritik. Oft beteuerte der Tech-Konzern, ihm seien die Hände gebunden. Der Algorithmus bestimme die Reihenfolge der Suchergebnisse, er sei objektiv – ein menschliches Einwirken ausgeschlossen.

Nun belegen Recherchen des «Wall Street Journal» das Gegenteil: Sie zeigen, wie «Google» in der Vergangenheit immer wieder in die Suchergebnisse eingegriffen hat – auf Druck von Werbepartnern oder Regierungen.

«Google» behandelt nicht alle gleich

Die Journalisten vom «Wall Street Journal» stützen ihre Recherchen auf über hundert Gesprächen mit Insidern, Zeitarbeiterinnen und -Arbeitern sowie Geschäftspartnern von «Google». Dabei ergab sich das Bild eines Unternehmens, das grosse Webseiten wie zum Beispiel «Facebook» oder «Amazon» in den Suchergebnissen weiter oben listet und damit bevorzugt. Wie «netzpolitik.org» berichtet, habe «Google» im Fall des wichtigen Anzeigekunden «ebay» gar Suchergebnisse geändert, nachdem dieser Druck aufgebaut hatte. Ein Vorgehen, das «Google» bisher stets bestritten hatte.

Relevant ist das, weil der Grossteil der Internet-Nutzer die Suchmaschine von «Google» als Eingangstüre ins weltweite Netz nutzt: Die Mehrheit der täglich rund 3,45 Milliarden Suchanfragen laufen über die Suchmaschine von «Google» – auch wenn diese längst nicht das gesamte Internet, sondern nur einen Teil davon durchsucht.

Und auch die Rangliste der Suchergebnisse ist wichtig – da fast neun von zehn Internet-Nutzern nur die erste Seite der «Google»-Suchergebnisse berücksichtigt. Zwei Drittel aller Nutzer geben sich gar ausschliesslich mit den ersten fünf Suchergebnissen zufrieden, der Rest wird ignoriert.

Eingriffe in Suchvorschläge

Die Journalisten führten auch Tests durch, die zeigen das «Google» auch in die automatischen Suchvorschläge eingreift, die die Suchmaschine bei einer Eingabe ins Suchfeld automatisch ergänzt. Bei dieser Ergänzung wird der Nutzerin oder dem Nutzer während dem Tippen eine Suchanfrage vorhergesagt, die sich auf alle bisherigen Suchen, auf die persönliche Suchhistorie und auf den Standort stützt.

In der Vergangenheit musste sich «Google» immer wieder Kritik gefallen lassen,

MoMe WiFi Heart Monitor Prescribed for Patients Despite Known Cardiac Risks from Wireless Radiation – Activist Post

mome-wifi-heart-monitor-prescribed-for-patients-despite-known-cardiac-risks-from-wireless-radiation-–-activist-post

26-11-19 09:28:00,

By B.N. Frank

Manufacturers of cell phones and other wireless radiation emitting devices warn against holding and carrying devices directly next to the body.  Telecom companies warn investors that they may eventually be held liable for their devices and transmitters.  This makes sense – research has determined that all sources of wireless radiation exposure can cause a variety of symptoms and illnesses including cardiac issues.

Regardless, some doctors still endorse wireless activity trackers and prescribe wireless emitting medical devices and implants.  The MoMe is one of them:

InfoBionic has developed the MoMe™ System, a remote patient monitoring platform initially focused on cardiac arrhythmia detection, to improve clinical efficiency and patient care with anytime, anywhere access to patient data. Our dedicated and experienced team has combined the power of Cloud computing with unprecedented arrhythmia detection to offer our first product, MoMe.Kardia.

InfoBionic is the industry’s first Software as a Service (SaaS) business model that maximizes physician practice efficiencies while providing superior patient care. The MoMe™ System is the first cloud-based, universal patient monitoring solution with unprecedented analytics that allows physicians to quickly and accurately diagnose and treat patients.

So which came first – the cardiac issues and diagnosis or the wireless radiation exposure from external sources and then the MoMe?

Activist Post reports regularly about all health issues associated with exposure to digital, electronic, and wireless technology.  For more information, visit our archives and the following websites:

‘Treat him like any Australian citizen or journalist’: Pamela Anderson pleads for Julian Assange with PM Scott Morrison

‘treat-him-like-any-australian-citizen-or-journalist’:-pamela-anderson-pleads-for-julian-assange-with-pm-scott-morrison

26-11-19 09:23:00,

Actress Pamela Anderson has called on to Australia’s prime minister to pick up the phone and appeal to US President Donald Trump to free Julian Assange, warning it his extradition would set a precedent harmful to all journalists.

The Australian national, founder of whistleblower website WikiLeaks, is looking at up to 175 years in prison under the Espionage Act if he is sent over to the US. He is currently in a UK jail as doctors and supporters are sounding alarm over his health – damaged by prison conditions, solitary confinement, and years of being locked inside the Ecuadorean embassy, where he had asylum.

Anderson characterized as “psychological torture” the way Assange was extracted from the embassy and put in maximum security prison, in a personal plea to PM Scott Morrison to “save an Australian hero” from the horrifying prospect of extradition to the US.

Also on rt.com
‘Mr Assange could die in prison. There is no time to lose’ – over 60 medics in open letter to UK govt.

The Sydney Morning Herald obtained a transcript of Andersons’ speech that she was to deliver in the Australian Parliament House, but was unable to due to scheduling conflicts.

“Every Australian needs to be aware that if Julian Assange is extradited to the USA for publishing then every other journalist and publisher of facts on the internet is vulnerable to execution or 175 years’ imprisonment for simply publishing facts that were delivered to him by whistleblowers,” Anderson said of the man who revealed to the world the civilian casualties of America’s wars in the Middle East.


The lies about Assange must stop now (by John Pilger)

The Hollywood star pointed out that Morrison’s predecessor did help another citizen – film director James Ricketson – who was in Cambodian prison on espionage charges. The current PM should do no less, and ought to pick up the phone to tell Trump and UK PM Boris Johnson “to do their part to save the people’s democratic right in the Western world.”

“He doesn’t want ‘special treatment’, he just wants to be treated like any other Australian citizen and journalist, he has not committed any crime for which a precedent in law stands,”

Could Russia Floating Nuclear Plants Change World Economy? | New Eastern Outlook

could-russia-floating-nuclear-plants-change-world-economy?-|-new-eastern-outlook

25-11-19 08:34:00,

While the EU and United States have all but abandoned nuclear energy as a future power source, with almost no new reactors being built and existing ones being decommissioned, Russia has quietly emerged as the world’s leading builder of peaceful civilian nuclear power plants. Now the Russian state nuclear company, Rosatom, has completed the first commercial floating nuclear plant and has successfully towed it to its ultimate location in the Russian Far East where access to power is difficult. It could transform the energy demands of much of the developing world, in addition to Russia. An added plus is that nuclear plants emit zero carbon emissions so that political opposition based on CO2 does not apply.

The floating power plant, named Akademik Lomonosov, houses two 35-megawatt reactors, based on the design of the nuclear plants aboard the successful fleet of Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers and capable of providing 70MW electric power to city of 100,000.By comparison a typical on-land nuclear station in the USA or Europe is 1,000 MW in size making them suitable only for densely populated industrialized areas.

The smaller reactors are far cheaper to build once they go into multiple-unit production and are far more flexible for locations in developing regions of Asia or Africa where lack of reliable electricity is a major constraint to economic development. The construction and installation cost for the Lomonosov is reportedly $480 million, or about $6.90 per watt, slightly more than an average conventional plant.[i]

It is designed to last 40 years before being towed away to a special location in Russia for decommissioning, similar to the process for nuclear-powered ships. The special vessel is some 140 meters long and 30 meters wide. The design features well-proven Russian-built nuclear reactors used reliably for some five decades to power its nuclear icebreaker fleet, the world’s largest. The vessel itself has been designed to be capable of withstanding a tsunami or even a collision with land or a ship. It is designed to be stationed at a specially fixed site on sea and connected to land via underwater cables.The floating units can act as cogeneration facilities capable of feeding the grid and for desalinating large quantities of seawater making them attractive to the Middle East and other countries with water problems.

Surprise! MSM Spins OPCW Leak As Russian Disinfo

surprise!-msm-spins-opcw-leak-as-russian-disinfo

25-11-19 07:40:00,

So, you might want to sit down for this, but believe it or not the mainstream media is behaving in a way that seems somewhat untruthful.

I know! I know. I’m just as astonished as you are.

So you know that Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons scandal we’ve been talking a lot about lately? The one where evidence keeps piling up that the US, UK and France launched airstrikes against the Syrian government last year in retaliation for a poison gas attack which never took place, and then manipulated an ostensibly independent and international chemical weapons watchdog organization into covering it up?

Well, it turns out that bigtime news media outlets haven’t been all that interested for some strange and mysterious reason. But just today they broke the silence with a new report that mentioned the scandal, and they’ve totally spun it in a way that makes the US and its allies look good! Can you believe that?

And you’ll never guess what excuse they’re using to spin it. Never in a million, billion years.

Put a pillow down on the floor, because your jaw’s about to drop like James Le Mesurier: believe it or not, they’re blaming it on Russian disinformation.

MSM has been steadfastly ignoring the OPCW scandal, but AFP briefly breaks the silence to inform us that the OPCW leaks are being “highlighted” by “Moscow”, and that unnamed “Western diplomats” say “the Russians and Syrians are trying to muddy the waters”.https://t.co/CYx6noOqHQ pic.twitter.com/VAVFugRoVc

— Caitlin Johnstone ⏳ (@caitoz) November 25, 2019

AFP, which just as an aside is one of only three gigantic news agencies that are responsible for most of the stories you see in the mass media, has put out an article that has been picked up by multiple mainstream media outlets titled “Showdown looms over Syria chemical weapons probe”. The article deliberately frames the issue as one which has been “highlighted” by “Moscow”, and publishes a claim sourced to unnamed western officials that “the Russians and Syrians are trying to muddy the waters”.

“Moscow has consistently raised doubts over chemical attacks in Syria or insisted they were staged,

Mother Explains Why Her Daughter’s Death from Vaccines Isn’t Reported in the Statistics – Global Research

mother-explains-why-her-daughter’s-death-from-vaccines-isn’t-reported-in-the-statistics-–-global-research

25-11-19 05:29:00,

It will be instructive for our conversation to understand exactly how the U. S. government’s Vaccination Injury Compensation Program (VICP) works. This is what the government website tells us:

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system for resolving vaccine injury petitions.

It was created in the 1980s, after lawsuits against vaccine companies and health care providers threatened to cause vaccine shortages and reduce U.S. vaccination rates, which would have caused a resurgence of vaccine preventable diseases.

Any individual, of any age, who received a covered vaccine and believes he or she was injured as a result, can file a petition. Parents, legal guardians and legal representatives can file on behalf of children, disabled adults, and individuals who are deceased.

A cursory glance at this may lead one to believe that this program is a reasonable under the circumstances. A more thoughtful analysis, however, can lead to the conclusion that this program may be the greatest coup in the history of the world in favor of business interests over human well-being.

Think about it. The pharmaceutical industry makes a product called vaccines which contain chemicals of questionable origin and effect that are injected directly into human beings, sometimes by forced mandate. The pharmaceutical industry claims that vaccines are very safe and effective, but just in case a vaccine is proven to cause harm or death, the pharmaceutical industry is not held accountable, and never has to admit what has actually been validated by science in court, that their vaccines had caused harm or death!  

Furthermore, A 2010 HHS pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) found that 1 in every 39 vaccines causes injury, a shocking comparison to the claims from the CDC of 1 in every million. Only percent of vaccine injuries are even reported, yet the National Childhood Vaccine Injury has still paid billions to families of vaccine injured children. You can read more about that here.

Instead, the cause of death on the death certificate often remains the amorphous ‘Sudden Infant Death Syndrome’ (SIDS) or, as told below by the mother of a 6-week old child who died from vaccination,

Torturing and Killing Julian Assange Slowly – Global Research

torturing-and-killing-julian-assange-slowly-–-global-research

25-11-19 05:24:00,

In cahoots with the Trump regime, Britain is killing Assange slowly for the “crime” of truth-telling journalism the way it’s supposed to be.

Isolated in maximum security solitary confinement, denied vitally needed medical and dental treatment, and reportedly given 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate (BZ) are crime against humanity by “intentionally causing great suffering or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health” — according to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

Longterm isolation by behind bars is torture by any standard, a flagrant US Eight Amendment violation, prohibiting “cruel and unusual punishments.”

The UN Convention Against Torture defines the practice as any state action, “causing severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental…intentionally inflicted on a person” for information, punishment, intimidation, or intentional discrimination.

Prisoners isolated for extended periods experience panic attacks, lethargy, insomnia, nightmares, dizziness, social withdrawal, memory and appetite loss, delusions and hallucinations, profound despair and hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, and paranoia.

Longterm isolation is like being buried alive, at times causing irreversible trauma, prisoners becoming dysfunctional and zombie-like.

BZ is a powerful, mind-altering drug. According to the Handbook of Toxicology of Chemical Warfare Agents, it’s “used as a hallucinogenic and incapacitating CWA (chemical weapon agent).”

Its toxic properties can harm or incapacitate anyone exposed to it even in small doses. BZ affects the central and peripheral nervous systems.

When exposed to the drug, symptoms include disorientation, agitation, tremor, ataxia (loss of control of bodily movements), stupor, coma, seizures, nausea and vomiting.

Fabricated US charges against Assange, his imprisonment, and horrific mistreatment are all about wanting truth-telling of government wrongdoing silenced.

It’s about warning independent journalists against exposing high crimes of state. It’s open warfare on digital democracy, the last frontier of free and open expression, the only reliable independent space for real news, information and analysis – enabling anyone to freely express or have access to views on any topics.

Following Assange’s indictment last May on multiple phony Espionage Act of 1917 violations, the Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF) denounced it as a “clear and present danger to journalism, the freedom of the press, and freedom of speech.”

The White Helmets: How the U.S. Has Sponsored Terrorists in Syria – Global Research

the-white-helmets:-how-the-us.-has-sponsored-terrorists-in-syria-–-global-research

25-11-19 05:24:00,

James Le Mesurier, the co-founder of the White Helmets, was found dead on November 11, 2019, in Istanbul. It is noteworthy that his body was discovered near one of the headquarters of the organization. This incident brought us once again to the deeds of the volunteers.

The White Helmets have an extremely questionable reputation. In the West, they are considered to be human rights activists. They are invited to participate in various conferences on Syria, and even their documentaries became film festival winners. But, not everyone finds it normal.

A number of journalists claim that the White Helmets supported different terrorist groups. For example, in 2017, the Australian academic Tim Anderson analyzed the posts and photos of the so-called human rights activists in social networks and proved that they were really involved in the crimes of radical armed groups.

The videos of the White Helmets where they show their rescue operations have been also repeatedly criticized. In 2017, a number of Arabic mass media cited a Syrian journalist Abbas Juma who published several remarkable screenshots. It turned out that the same children were rescued by the White Helmets several times in the same places. The only possible explanation is that the videos were staged.

White Helmets in Han-Sheihoun

The Syrians themselves have repeatedly spoken about distrust for the organization. Recently, the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad marked the White Helmets as a part of the al-Nusra Front. He emphasized that the activists are involved in executions of civilians, abuse of prisoners and other crimes against humanity. That is why the majority of Syrians do not trust them.

Initially, the White Helmets arose as a project funded by Western countries to promote the positive image of radical jihadists groups. The British journalist Vanessa Bailey investigated the scheme for creating the organization back in 2015. She found out that besides various private funds, the British Foreign Office as well as the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) are among the beneficiaries of the organization.

The list of WH sponsors

Several additional non-profit organizations that actually receive Western funding are operating in Syria today. For example,

Facebook Bans All Content On Vaccine Awareness, Including Facts About Vaccine Ingredients

facebook-bans-all-content-on-vaccine-awareness,-including-facts-about-vaccine-ingredients

25-11-19 05:08:00,

Authored by Mike Adams via NaturalNews.com,

Just as we warned would happen, the tech giants are now moving aggressively to ban all speech that contradicts whatever “official” position is decided to be “the truth” by the corrupt establishment. This week, Facebook announced it would block all content on Facebook that questions the official dogma on vaccines, which falsely insists that vaccines have never harmed anyone (a hilarious lie), that vaccines contain only safe ingredients (a blatant deception) and that vaccines always work on everyone (another laughable lie).

Facebook is achieving this by labeling vaccine awareness information “misinformation” or “hoaxes.” At the top of the list is the assertion that vaccines are linked to autism — something that even the CDC’s own top whistleblower scientist reveals to be true, yet the vaccine industry claims it’s all a hoax (in order to cover of the crimes of medical violence against children that are being committed by the vaccine pushers).

Notably, tech giants are now banning vaccine truth information by labeling it “misinformation” in exactly the same way they ban conservative content by labeling it “hate speech.” They simply invent a false category to justify the ban, all while crushing the free speech of users (and ultimately leading to the vaccine maiming of millions of innocent children). Under this twisted system of speech policing, they can ban any content they don’t like by simply labeling it “false” or “hateful,” even if it’s true and important.

Don’t like infanticide and the killing of human infants after they are born? That’s “hate speech against women,” Facebook will soon declare. And you’ll be banned from talking about abortion.

Concerned about fluoride and how it harms developing brains and lowers the IQs of children? That will be labeled a “hoax” by Facebook, even though it is scientifically verified through multiple studies to be true.

The censorship trick: Limiting content to “authoritative information”

“Monika Bickert, Facebook’s vice president for global policy management, said the social media network would reduce the distribution of false data and provide users with authoritative information about vaccinations,” reports AFP, via Breitbart.

Of course,

Ist das der Plan? Britische Ärzte warnen, Assange könnte die Haft in London nicht überleben | Anti-Spiegel

ist-das-der-plan?-britische-arzte-warnen,-assange-konnte-die-haft-in-london-nicht-uberleben-|-anti-spiegel

25-11-19 01:19:00,

Wie dreist und geplant Julian Assange in die Falle gelockt wurde und wie das „Problem Assange“ gelöst werden soll, wird deutlich, wenn man sich die Meldungen der letzten Wochen zu dem Thema anschaut.

Die USA wollen Assange ausschalten, weil er mit Wikileaks ihre Verbrechen öffentlich macht. Ohne Wikileaks wüssten wir nichts von den Kriegsverbrechen der USA im Irak und in Afghanistan. Ohne Wikileaks wäre Snowden nicht mehr in Freiheit, denn es war Wikileaks, die seinerzeit seine Flucht aus Hongkong organisiert haben. Ohne Wikileaks wüssten wir auch nicht, wie die Demokraten in den USA 2015 und 2016 im Vorwahlkampf mit unlauteren Mitteln Clinton gefördert und Sanders behindert haben. Und noch vieles mehr. Die Liste ist lang.

Wikileaks macht also genau das, was Journalismus tun sollte: Es schaut den Mächtigen auf die Finger und deckt ihre Verbrechen auf. Und genau das passt den USA nicht, sie wollen Assange mundtot machen und am liebsten würde man ihn auch tot im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes sehen. Nur wie lässt sich das anstellen?

Offiziell wollen die USA ihm den Prozess machen, es läuft ein Auslieferungsantrag. Aber ich habe immer gezweifelt, dass die USA eine Gerichtsverhandlung anstreben. Die Medien würden wochenlang berichten und all die alten Skandale, die man vergessen machen will, würden wieder aufgewärmt. Und es wäre schwierig, dabei Assange wie einen Bösewicht aussehen zu lassen. Es ist also zu erwarten, dass Assange vorher stirbt und ähnlich wie im Fall Epstein die peinlichen Details nicht in einem Prozess öffentlich werden.

Die Frage war also, wie man seiner habhaft werden konnten. Um hier einen Weg zu finden, der in der Öffentlichkeit keine Proteste auslöst, tauchten gegen Assange Vergewaltigungsvorwürfe auf. Angeblich hatte er 2010 in Schweden zwei Frauen vergewaltigt, die gegen ihn Anzeige erstattet haben. Vergewaltigung ist böse und und dass sich die Öffentlichkeit mit einem Vergewaltiger solidarisiert, ist eher unwahrscheinlich. Die Medien haben ausführlich berichtet, es ging darum, Assange in ein schlechtes Licht zu rücken.

Dabei gab es gar keine Vergewaltigung. Assange hatte einvernehmlichen Sex mit zwei Frauen, die sich danach betrogen fühlten und Angst hatten, sich bei ihm eine Geschlechtskrankheit geholt zu haben. Parallel mit zwei Frauen Sex zu haben, mag moralisch verwerflich von Assange sein, aber es ist keine Vergewaltigung.

Auf diese Weise kam es zu einem Haftbefehl in Schweden.

Evidence Talks: US Government Propelled Coup in Bolivia – Global Research

evidence-talks:-us-government-propelled-coup-in-bolivia-–-global-research

25-11-19 08:38:00,

A coup on November 10 removed the socialist government of Bolivian President Evo Morales. The U.S. government made preparations and orchestrated the final stages of the coup. It was in charge. In power for almost 14 years, Morales and Vice President Álvaro García Linera had won elections taking place on October 20. The two leaders would each have been serving a fourth term in office.

Evidence of the U.S. crime appears below.  It’s about money, U.S. influence within the Bolivian military, and U.S. control of the Organization of American States (OAS):

1. For many years the Santa Cruz Civic Committee and its proto-fascist Youth Union received funding from the U.S. National Endowment for Democracy. According to analyst Eva Golinger some years ago, the USAID provided $84 million to Bolivian opposition groups.

U.S. Embassy officials conspired with and paid the “civic committees” of Bolivia’s four eastern departments. Representing the European- descended elite of Bolivia’s wealthiest region, these groups promoted racist assaults. They concocted a separatist movement and tried to assassinate Morales. In response, the Bolivian government expelled the U.S. ambassador, Drug Enforcement Agency, and the U. S. Agency for International Development.

2. Bolivian armed forces commander in chief Williams Kaliman Romero on November 10 “suggested” that Morales resign. That was the coup de grace. Within three days, Kaliman himself resigned and moved to the United States. Sullkata M. Quilla of the Latin American Center for Strategic Analysis explains that Kaliman and other military chiefs each had received $1 million and that top police officers received $500,000 apiece. U.S. Chargee d’affaires Bruce Williamson allegedly arranged for monetary transactions that took place in Argentina’s Jujuy Province under the auspices of Governor Geraldo Morales. The story first appeared on the website www.Tvmundus.com.ar.

3. Money flowed freely prior to Morales’s departure. Bolivian ambassador to the United Nations Sacha Llorenti – a Morales supporter – reported that, “loyal members of [Morales’s] security team showed him messages in which people were offering them $50,000 if they would hand him over.”

4. According to the respected Argentinean journalist Stella Cattaloni, Ivanka Trump arrived in Jujuy on September 4-5 ostensibly to honor a small group of women entrepreneurs. Some “2,500 federal agents” and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan accompanied her.

Militarizing America’s Police: The Whole Damn System Is “Guilty as Hell”: Taking Control of Police – Global Research

militarizing-america’s-police:-the-whole-damn-system-is-“guilty-as-hell”:-taking-control-of-police-–-global-research

25-11-19 08:34:00,

The entire system of policing in the United States is in crisis. Police murdering civilians has become a too common nightmare across the United States. The police murders of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, Eric Garner in New York City, Walter Scott in Charleston, SC, Tamar Rice in Cleveland OH, Freddie Gray in Baltimore, MD, Laquan McDonald in Chicago, IL and so many more have spurred a movement to transform policing.

The power relationship between police and the community is out of balance. Militarized policing of black and brown communities resembles an occupying force. While many police departments use the slogan “protect and serve,” in too many communities, people do not feel protected or served. They feel threatened, harassed and abused by police.

The relationship between police and the people needs to change. While there have been some positive reforms like police body cameras, special units to investigate police and increased prosecutions of police, these are insufficient. The most promising transformational change is to put in place community control of police through a democratically-elected police accountability board.

Screenshots showing the police conflict and killing of Eric Garner.

The Crisis

The constant police killings and shootings often caught on video and shared on social media have created a movement to transform policing. Associated Press described it, writing: “The videos — and the outrage that followed — helped ignite the most powerful civil rights movement since the 1960s.” The widespread police violence has become a national racial justice issue.

Police violence has been a reality in the United States from the start. The poster to the right could be carried today, but it is more than 50 years old. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said in the I Have A Dream Speech, “We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality.” Police violence has been part of centuries of oppression of Black people in the United States since they were first brought to the continent as slaves.

Slavery and racism are intertwined with policing, as Gary Potter Ph.D.

The Lies About Assange Must Stop Now – Global Research

24-11-19 08:41:00,

Newspapers and other media in the United States, Britain and Australia have recently declared a passion for freedom of speech, especially their right to publish freely.  They are worried by the “Assange effect”.  

It is as if the struggle of truth-tellers like Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning is now a warning to them: that the thugs who dragged Assange out of the Ecuadorean embassy in April may one day come for them.

A common refrain was echoed by the Guardian last week. The extradition of Assange, said the paper, “is not a question of how wise Mr. Assange is, still less how likable. It’s not about his character, nor his judgement. It’s a matter of press freedom and the public’s right to know.”  

What the Guardian is trying to do is separate Assange from his landmark achievements, which have both profited the Guardian and exposed its own vulnerability, along with its propensity to suck up to rapacious power and smear those who reveal its double standards.

The poison that has fueled the persecution of Julian Assange is not as obvious in this editorial as it usually is; there is no fiction about Assange smearing faeces on embassy walls or being awful to his cat.

Instead, the weasel references to “character” and “judgement” and “likeability” perpetuate an epic smear which is now almost a decade old.  Nils Melzer, the United Nations Rapporteur on Torture, used a more apt description. “There has been,” he wrote, “a relentless and unrestrained campaign of public mobbing.”  He explains mobbing as “an endless stream of humiliating, debasing and threatening statements in the press”. This “collection ridicule” amounts to torture and could lead to Assange’s death.

Having witnessed much of what Melzer describes , I can vouch for the truth of his words. If Julian Assange were to succumb to the cruelties heaped upon him, week after week, month after month, year upon year, as doctors warn, newspapers like the Guardian will share the responsibility.

A few days ago, the Sydney Morning Herald’s man in London, Nick Miller, wrote a lazy, specious piece headlined, “Assange has not been vindicated, he has merely outwaited justice.”  He was referring to Sweden’s abandonment of the so-called Assange investigation.

Recently uncovered evidence indicates that the New Manhattan Project – otherwise known as ‘geoengineering’ – goes back further than previously thought.

As the name ‘New Manhattan Project’ implies, the author was previously under the impression that this ultra-massive, super-secret scientific project (the biggest of all time, in fact) only went back to the mid-1940s; directly after the end of the original Manhattan Project. Your intrepid author has recently found evidence suggesting that the New Manhattan Project should be called the Old Manhattan Project because it now looks like its roots actually go back about 35 years earlier.

The findings presented here have everything to do with an organization called The Research Corporation for Science Advancement and the origins of The Research Corporation for Science Advancement (Research Corporation) have everything to do with the life and work of one Frederick Gardner Cottrell (1877-1948).

Today the Research Corporation for Science Advancement has a website, a Twitter feed, and a Facebook page.

If you don’t know what the New Manhattan Project is, please refer to the author’s book Chemtrails Exposed: A New Manhattan Project available exclusively at Amazon.

Frederick Gardner Cottrell

In the early 1900s Frederick Gardner Cottrell pioneered the field of large-scale, electrostatic removal of coal fly ash from the emissions of coal-fired electrical power plants. This is relevant to the New Manhattan Project for a few reasons.

It is relevant because it has been scientifically proven beyond a reasonable doubt by Dr. Marvin Herndon and his peer-reviewers all over the world that the substance with which we are being routinely sprayed today is coal fly ash. You see, coal fly ash is the smoke that rises from burning coal. It’s a toxic waste by-product of the electrical power industry. There’s a big, cheap supply of it all over the world and if they don’t spray it into our atmosphere, it costs the electrical power companies big money to properly dispose of it. The low cost and ready availability of coal fly ash makes it suitable for geoengineering purposes because geoengineers are talking about spraying tens of thousands of megatons of toxic substances such as this from airplanes ANNUALLY.

WikiLeaks Exposes Doctored OPCW Report on Alleged Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria – Global Research

On November 23, WikiLeaks accused the OPCW “of doctoring (its Douma, Syria) chemical weapons report.”

It published email information from an OPCW whistleblower, a member of its fact finding mission to Douma, expressing “his gravest concern over intentional bias introduced to a redacted version of the report he co-authored.”

More on this below.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) operates as a pro-Western imperial tool.

It serves US/NATO interests — polar opposite its mandated obligations “to achieve…a world…free of” chemical weapons.

The organization lost its legitimacy. It should be disbanded and replaced by independent chemical watchdog groups — beholden solely to upholding Chemical Weapons Convention provisions, free from external influence and control.

The OPCW’s so-called Fact Finding Mission (FFM) doctored its March 2019 report on the alleged April 7, 2018 Douma, Syria CW incident — that never happened, falsely saying the following:

“Regarding the alleged use of toxic chemicals as a weapon in Douma (Syria)…evaluation and analysis…of information gathered by the FFM (delaying its visit to the site for 11 days) provide(s) reasonable grounds that the use of a toxic chemical as a weapon has taken place on April 7, 2018.”

“This toxic chemical contained reactive chlorine. The toxic chemical was likely molecular chlorine.”

The so-called incident was fake, a US/NATO-staged false flag, Syria wrongfully blamed for a victimless nonevent.

No one in Douma died, was hospitalized, or became ill from exposure to chemical or other toxins.

Local eyewitnesses and medical personal debunked the falsified narrative. Russian technical experts found no evidence of chemical or other toxins in soil samples and other analysis of the site.

Yet the OPCW FFM falsely claimed what didn’t happen. At the time, Russia slammed the “fabricated” account of the alleged incident.

Damascus said the OPCW’s report “d(id) not differ from the previous mission reports filled with distorted facts” — falsely blaming Syria for CW incidents staged by US-supported terrorists.

Throughout years of US-launched aggression in Syria, using ISIS and likeminded jihadists as imperial foot soldiers, supported by Pentagon-led terror-bombing since 2014 — not a shred of credible evidence ever suggested use of banned chemical or other toxins by Syrian Arab Republic forces against anyone.

“They’re Killing Us Like Dogs” – A Massacre in Bolivia and a Plea for Help – Global Research

I am writing from Bolivia just days after witnessing the November 19 military massacre at the Senkata gas plant in the indigenous city of El Alto, and the tear-gassing of a peaceful funeral procession on November 21 to commemorate the dead. These are examples, unfortunately, of the modus operandi of the de facto government that seized control in a coup that forced Evo Morales out of power.

The coup has spawned massive protests, with blockades set up around the country as part of a national strike calling for the resignation of this new government. One well-organized blockade is in El Alto, where residents set up barriers surrounding the Senkata gas plant, stopping tankers from leaving the plant and cutting off La Paz’s main source of gasoline.

Determined to break the blockade, the government sent in helicopters, tanks and heavily armed soldiers in the evening of November 18. The next day, mayhem broke out when the soldiers began teargassing residents, then shooting into the crowd. I arrived just after the shooting. The furious residents took me to local clinics where the wounded were taken. I saw the doctors and nurses desperately trying to save lives, carrying out emergency surgeries in difficult conditions with a shortage of medical equipment. I saw five dead bodies and dozens of people with bullet wounds. Some had just been walking to work when they were struck by bullets. A grieving mother whose son was shot cried out between sobs: “They’re killing us like dogs.” In the end, there were 8 confirmed dead.

The next day, a local church became an improvised morgue, with the dead bodies–some still dripping blood–lined up in pews and doctors performing autopsies. Hundreds gathered outside to console the families and contribute money for coffins and funerals. They mourned the dead, and cursed the government for the attack and the local press for refusing to tell the truth about what happened.

The local news coverage about Senkata was almost as startling as the lack of medical supplies. The de facto government has threatened journalists with sedition should they spread “disinformation” by covering protests, so many don’t even show up. Those who do often spread disinformation. The main TV station reported three deaths and blamed the violence on the protesters,
