 Rife – Lakhovsky and Sciencehttp://altered-states.net/barry/newsletter380/index.htm – “In the 1950’s, Congressman Charles Tobey enlisted Benedict Fitzgerald, an investigator for the Interstate Commerce Commission, to investigate allegations of conspiracy and monopolistic practices on the part of orthodox medicine. This came about as the result of the son of Senator Tobey who developed cancer and was given less than two years to live by orthodox medicine. However, Tobey Jr., discovered options in the alternative field, received alternative treatment and fully recovered from his cancerous condition! That is when he learned of alleged conspiratorial practices on the part of orthodox medicine. He passed the word to his father, Senator Charles Tobey, who initiated an investigation. The final report clearly indicated there was indeed a conspiracy to monopolize the medical and drug industry and to eliminate alternative options. * “Royal R. Rife” by Gerald F.

Afterward the president gave no hint of tensions when he told reporters the two leaders had “a very good call” and that he plans to meet with Putin soon to discuss curtailing an arms race… Within days the split between Trump’s Russia policy and public rhetoric was again on display.” – Comment: Political Theater?

In particular, heavy military equipment is arriving to the zone established by the United States around the settlements of al-Tanf in the southeast of the country,’ Zakharova told a briefing.”

Saudi Arabia Spreading Wahhabism At West’s Request: Crown Princehttps://southfront.org/saudi-arabia-spreading-wahhabism-at-wests-request-crown-prince/ – “Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman has claimed that his country is spreading the Wahhabism ideology in the Middle East at the request by its Western allies… ‘Investments in mosques and madrassas overseas were rooted in the Cold War, when allies asked Saudi Arabia to use its resources to prevent inroads in Muslim countries by the Soviet Union,’ he said in an interview with Washington Post… The crown prince continued saying that successive Saudi governments lost track of the effort now Saudi Arabia has “to get it all back.” According to Bin Salman, funding of the Wahhabism spread now comes largely from Saudi-based “foundations”, rather than from the government.”

Child Arrested for Sharing Photo of Toy Gun on Social Media That He Got for His Birthday – by Rachel Blevins – http://www.thedailysheeple.com/child-arrested-for-sharing-photo-of-toy-gun-on-social-media-that-he-got-for-his-birthday_032018 – “Then when Cassidento went to school, he said he was taken out of class and a school resource officer took his possessions and searched him for weapons after a student reported the photo to school authorities… ‘They took my phone and my backpack and pulled me into the office, out into the hallway where the officer told me to put my hands out and he checked me,’ Cassidento said… ‘They  searched my son at school. They didn’t call me. they didn’t tell me what was going on. They did not call me until he’s already been arrested, searched, brought to the office, harassed,’ Ms. Cassidento said. ‘Then they called me because I had to meet them at my home to have five officers come into my home and search my house.’ “Comment: I wonder if there was a warrant for searching Ms. Cassidento’s home?

Deciphering Russia’s delivery of Tell Rifaat to Turkey – by Metin Gurcan – https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2018/03/turkey-syria-russia-turkish-army-besiege-tell-rifat.html – “It’s also obvious that Turkey’s increasing military activities are very much linked with the Iran-Russia-Turkey summit set for the beginning of April in Istanbul. To sit more comfortably at the table and to minimize Iran’s consolidation of power south of Aleppo, Ankara needs a clear-cut success in the field. Moscow appears to expect Turkey to sit at the table with a strong hand to tame Tehran. It’s believed Russia is trying to craft a power balance between Ankara-supported Sunni opposition, Assad’s forces and pro-Iranian militias west of the Euphrates.”

US to leave Syrian battlefield ‘very soon,’ Trump declares – from Agence France Presse – https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-to-leave-syrian-battlefield-very-soon-trump-declares/ – “The comments of a US withdrawal will likely raise fears in Israel of Iran continuing to extend its foothold in Syria, where Jerusalem worries it is setting up bases for use in attacks against Israel. While the US has said it supports Israel’s efforts to thwart Iranian expansionism on its borders, officials in Jerusalem have quietly expressed fears that the arena is being ceded by Washington to Russia, which is allied with Iran and Assad… In a speech at Stanford University, he also warned that “a total withdrawal of American personnel at this time would restore Assad and continue his brutal treatment against his own people.” (emphasis added)

From Twitter, Trump’s speech today: #Trump: “We’ll be coming out of #Syria very soon. Let the other people take care of it now. We’re going to have 100% of the caliphate, as they call it… sometimes referred to as land. We’re taking it all back. Quickly, quickly” #Manbij Comment: What TF can Trump really mean here? They’re leaving others to “take care of it,” but they’re also going to take back “100% of the caliphate” which he says is “land” and “quickly.” Does Trump really know what he’s saying? – video HERE: https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/979475640192823296

Russian Military Police Redeployed In Tel Rifaat City (Photos)https://southfront.org/russian-military-police-redeployed-tel-rifaat-city-photos/ – “However, Russia appears to be against any Turkish attack on Tell Rifaat and the Menagh airbase north of it. Tell Rifaat now hosts tens of thousands of civilians that have been forcibly displaced by the Turkish Army from their villages and towns in Afrin area. This situation could be the reason behind the Russian decision to keep Turkey away from the northern city.”

Russia To Expel 60 US Diplomats, Close US Consulate General In St. Petersburghttps://southfront.org/russia-to-expel-60-us-diplomats-close-us-consulate-general-in-st-petersburg/ – “US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman has been summoned to our ministry, where my deputy Sergei Ryabkov is briefing him on the tit-for-tat steps against the US,” Lavrov said, according to the sate-run news agency TASS. “They include the expulsion of the same number of diplomats and our decision to withdraw consent to the work of the Consulate General in St. Petersburg.” -Sergey Lavrov

Syrian Journalist Shows How Ghouta Militants Became Victims of Their Own Propaganda – by Patrick Henningsen – http://21stcenturywire.com/2018/03/29/syrian-journalist-shows-how-ghouta-militants-became-victims-of-their-own-propaganda/ – “The following scene was captured on film by Syrian TV journalist Jaafar Younis, as he boarded one of the buses full of militants and family members bound for the northern province of Idlib, given safe passage by the Syrian government from recently liberated EastGhouta. During this incredible exchange, Younis engaged some of the armed militants as they confirmed that aid and food was indeed hoarded by the leaders of the US Coalition and Gulf state-backed terrorist proxies. Amazingly, they were not aware that ‘reconciliation’ was an option for them.”

Snowden Archive——The SidToday Files – “SIDtoday is the internal newsletter for the NSA’s most important division, the Signals Intelligence Directorate. After editorial review, The Intercept is releasing nine years’ worth of newsletters in batches, starting with 2003. The agency’s spies explain a surprising amount about what they were doing, how they were doing it, and why.” – https://theintercept.com/snowden-sidtoday/

From the Peace-Through-Social-Justice Desk: World Water Forum Closes with Calls to Action on Justice, Human Rights and Youthhttp://sdg.iisd.org/news/world-water-forum-closes-with-calls-to-action-on-justice-human-rights-and-youth/ – “The Political Process also included mock court proceedings, referred to as the International Court of Justice for Water, and a meeting of parliamentarians.

The Declaration calls for strengthening the capacity of judges and lawyers to apply water law and the environmental rule of law. The meeting of parliamentarians debated ‘The Role of Parliaments and the Right to Water,’ focusing on the themes of climate change and water security, universal access to drinking water and basic sanitation, and legislative innovation and best practices for water management.”

UK Jewish leaders said set to tell Corbyn: Oust Livingstone, ‘drain the sewer’ – Board of Deputies reportedly drafting list of demands to present to Labour leader after he promised to rid party of anti-Semitism –  https://www.timesofisrael.com/uk-jewish-leaders-said-set-to-tell-corbyn-oust-livingstone-drain-the-sewer/ – “Ken Livingstone really cannot remain. His views are shameful and disreputable. He will have to go,” Jonathan Arkush, the president of the Board of Deputies, told anti-Semitism campaigners at a Monday rally, according to the report.” – Comment: Former London Mayor Livingstone is branded an arch Anti-Semite for noting the historical fact that Hitler made deals with the Zionists prior to and during WWII. Or, rather, the Zionists made deals with Hitler.

Dem Lawmaker: We Don’t Want To Confiscate Guns, We Want To ‘Seize’ Them – by Mac Slavo – http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/dem-lawmaker-we-dont-want-to-confiscate-guns-we-want-to-seize-them_03272018 – “But Carlson presented an interesting question while Thomas was talking.  ‘What if Americans don’t want to give up their guns?’  There’s still not been a rational and logical response on how that would be handled from any Democrat; politician or otherwise.”

Why Are Aggressive Brain Tumors On The Rise In England? How About USA? – by Catherine Frompovich – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/03/why-are-aggressive-brain-tumors-on-the-rise-in-england-how-about-usa.html – “The rise is of importance for clinical resources and brain tumour aetiology. The rise cannot be fully accounted for by promotion of lower–grade tumours, random chance or improvement in diagnostic techniques as it affects specific areas of the brain and only one type of brain tumour. Despite the large variation in case numbers by age, the percentage rise is similar across the age groups which suggests widespread environmental or lifestyle factors may be responsible.”

Google’s latest assault on your privacy comes in the form of a tiny “smart” camera designed to autonomously monitor and document your every move – by Jayson Veley – http://govtslaves.info/2018/03/googles-latest-assault-on-your-privacy-comes-in-the-form-of-a-tiny-smart-camera-designed-to-autonomously-monitor-and-document-your-every-move/ – “In an article published by Navneet Alang of  TheWeek.com in March, Alang asked, ‘Why is capturing more and more candid images good? It all proceeds on the assumption that the more things we record the better.’ He added, ‘The idea of adding smart cameras, smart speakers, and more to our homes simply increases the sense that all moments are there for recording, and we’ve yet to grapple with not just what it means, but whether or not it’s desirable at all.’ ”

Congress threatens to cut UN funding for voting against Israel – by Bryant Harris – http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2018/03/congress-threatens-cut-un-agencies-israel.html#ixzz5B4JDeji – “According to a little-noticed provision in the massive government spending bill that President Donald Trump signed into law last week, UN agencies and entities that act against the United States or its allies, including Israel, could lose 5% of their US contribution… The new law requires the secretary of state to consult with the US ambassador to the UN to determine if an ‘agency or entity has taken an official action that is against the national security interest of the United States or an ally of the United States, including Israel.’ Israel is the only US ally that is explicitly named in both the bill’s text and its accompanying report language.”

China applauds Putin’s win, backs Russia on Skripal case, hails China’s ‘strategic partnership’ with Russia – Messages of support for Russia and its “comprehensive collaborative strategic partnership” pour in from China – by Alexander Mercouris – http://theduran.com/china-hails-putin-win-backs-russia-skripal-praises-chinas-alliance-russia/ – “Both editorials see the Skripal case as a continuation of the Western campaign to undermine President Putin in order to disrupt Russia’s independent course… Both editorials link the Skripal case to Russia’s Presidential election which took place on 18th March 2018… The first editorial – published before Russia’s Presidential election – puts it this way: ‘It makes people think of the upcoming Russian presidential election on March 18. The West wrestling with Russia at this particular moment has become a major factor for Russia’s elections. It is hard to distinguish how much of the antagonism reflect its true severity and how much is designed to target Russia’s elections… The past couple of years has witnessed the most strenuous period of Russia’s relations with the West. The improvement in their relations since the end of the Cold War has almost run out. However, today’s Russia, without satellite states, is incomparable with the strength of the former Soviet Union when dealing with the strategic pressure from the West…’ ”

Erdogan keeps finger on trigger as PKK exits Sinjar – by Fehim Tastekin – https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2018/03/turkey-iraq-sinjar-pkk-withdraw-from-yazidi-region.html – “Yet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said March 26 he was ready to begin an offensive in the Sinjar mountain area bordering Syria if Iraq doesn’t thoroughly rid the region of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which Turkey considers a terrorist organization. The PKK’s presence there has been a point of contention between Iraq and Turkey since the militant group took control of the region from the Islamic State (IS) in 2015. Erdogan has listed Sinjar as one of Turkey’s “next targets” following Ankara’s offensive on the northern Syrian city of Afrin…”

Overview Of Battle For Eastern Ghouta On March 27, 2018 (Map, Videos) – https://southfront.org/overview-of-battle-for-eastern-ghouta-on-march-27-2018-map-videos/ – “The area of Douma remains the only militant stronghold in the region. Jaish al-Islam’s political leader Mohammed Alloush claimed on March 26 evening that the group is not going to retreat from the town. However, this statement is barely based on the reality as the area of Douma is now  fully besieged by government forces… Jaish al-Islam will likely be able to keep control over Douma until the rest of militants retreat from the southern part of Eastern Ghouta. As soon as militants retreat, the SAA will start efforts to take control of Douma despite Jaish al-Islam’s propaganda claims.”

Washington Has Declared Hegemony or War – by Paul Craig Roberts – https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/03/24/washington-declared-hegemony-war/ – “Indeed, nothing is more dangerous to the world than Russia’s self-delusion about “Western partners.”  Russia only has Western enemies. These enemies intend to remove the constraint that Russia (and China) place on Washington’s unilateralism. The various incidents staged by the West, such as the Skirpal poisoning, Syrian use of chemical weapons, Malaysian airliner, and false charges, such as Russian invasion of Ukraine, are part of the West’s determined intent to isolate Russia, deny her any influence, and prepare the insouciant Western populations for conflict with Russia… The crazed neoconservatives, such as Trump’s National Security Adviser John Bolton, think that Russia will buckle under the strains, sue for peace, and accept US hegemony. If this assumption is incorrect, the outcome of Washington’s hostile actions against Russia is likely to be nuclear war. The side that Stephen Lendman and I are talking is neither the side of Washington nor Russia, but the side of humanity and all life against nuclear war… How the Russian government could ignore the clearly stated US hegemony in the 1992 Wolfowitz Doctrine is a mystery. The Wolfowitz doctrine states  that the US’s primary goal is ‘to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union.’ “ Comment: You may notice that there is a boatload of an “enemy construct” overhanging the above. IMO, it is extremely ineffectual to try to ignore that the major institutional powers on the world scene are at war with each other at the levels of the hegemon’s egos. Not factoring this into the equations of one’s perception of the world-of-form will lead to enormously mistaken assumptions about what is likely to emerge on the world scene. That is, unless one wants to argue that those who allow themselves to see these conflicts warts-and-all are thereby creating for themselves a different world than those who prefer to ignore the dripping antagonism. I guess that would mean that some give credit to the idea that some of us will possibly experience a world where thermonuclear war emerges, while those who remain pure of noticing bellicosity will instead find themselves in Earth Prime (in other words, another timeline), where the White Hats solve everything and we can enter the fabled 1000 years of peace.

Child Protective Services in North Carolina using Blackmail to Illegally Seize Children from Familieshttp://healthimpactnews.com/2018/child-protective-services-in-north-carolina-using-blackmail-to-illegally-seize-children-from-families/ – “Here’s how it works: The child protective services worker says to a parent: Sign this document allowing us to place the child with an extended family member or we’ll take the child on the spot and place the child with total strangers. (If that’s not enough, they might ratchet up the threat, saying they will proceed immediately to termination of parental rights)… CPS then argues, with a straight face, that the placement was voluntary – the family chose to give up any rights they may have to a lawyer and court review… In fact, these placements are about as voluntary as a mugger sticking a gun in your face, saying “give me your money” and then telling the judge ‘I didn’t mug the guy, he gave me the money.’.. The signing of some sort of agreement under threat of more drastic measures appears to be commonplace all across the United States.”

From the Draining-The-Swamp? Desk: Trump, Joining Allies, Expels 60 Russians Over Poisoning in U.K. – by Katie Rogers and Eileen Sullivan – https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/26/world/europe/trump-russia-diplomats-expulsion.html – “President Trump ordered the expulsion of 60 Russians from the United States on Monday, adding to a growing cascade of similar actions taken by western allies in response to Russia’s alleged poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain.” (emphasis added) Note: Is this the kind of “measured” action that you might expect from an administration that is on the verge of correcting the harmful behaviors of a corrupt system?

IDF intel chief warns Iran could draw Israel deeper into Syria conflict – by Judah Ari Gross – https://www.timesofisrael.com/idf-intel-chief-warns-iran-could-draw-israel-further-into-syria-conflict/ – “Outgoing Military Intelligence chief Maj. Gen. Herzl Halevi on Sunday accused Iran of bringing instability to the Middle East in its quest for hegemony, a trend that he said would shape the region this year… Halevi implied that this effort by Iran was making it more likely that Israel would have to change its policy of limited involvement in the Syrian civil war raging to its north.” (emphasis added)
