The Real Reason The Propagandists Have Been Promoting Russia Hysteria – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/07/27/the-real-reason-the-propagandists-have-been-promoting-russia-hysteria/Possibly the most tightly focused and effective article Caitlin has written to-date. And that’s saying something.

“The Media Is Reluctant to Report Israel Boasts of Killing Iranians” – by Philip M. Giraldi – https://ahtribune.com/world/north-africa-south-west-asia/3343-tzachi-hanegbi-boasts-killing-iranians.html – “It is rare that a high official in a government will admit that his country has been killing foreigners without any declaration of war or being subjected to an imminent threat, but that is exactly whatIsraeli Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi has done recently, boasting on a Sunday morning talk radio show that ‘Israel is the only country in the world that has been killing Iranians for two years now.’.. What is astonishing is that Minister Hangebi does not perceive the implications of the Israeli government’s apparent willingness to kill Syrians on the ground by intent and also as collateral damage even though it is not at war with Damascus. It does so with the stated objective of killing Iranians even though it is also not at war with Iran. It is, to state it succinctly, several war crimes tied up in one package and it would make the Jewish state uniquely a rogue among nations but for the fact that the United States has done the same sort of thing with cruise missile strikes in Syria, though not in as sustained a fashion as have the Israelis.”

10,000 American Cryptocurrency Owners Will Receive Warning Letters From the IRS – by Jamie Redman –  https://www.activistpost.com/2019/07/10000-american-cryptocurrency-owners-will-receive-warning-letters-from-the-irs.html – “On July 26, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that the tax agency has started sending letters to American cryptocurrency owners advising them to pay their taxes. According to the organization, three types of letters will be sent to more than 10,000 taxpayers by the end of August. The news follows the recent IRS taskforce slide that shows alarming recommendations on how tax agents should investigate digital currency users… Through Compliance Efforts the Internal Revenue Service Has Collected 10,000 Names: The IRS media room has published a press release explaining that the government tax agency plans to send letters to Americans who own digital currencies. The organization’s announcement, published on Friday, says that the letters will be sent to taxpayers who have participated in virtual currency transactions or otherwise did not report past transactions properly. The IRS calls the letters of recommendation “educational” and started sending the notices last week. Through IRS “compliance efforts,” the tax agency has obtained the names of more than 10,000 Americans who will receive this correspondence.”

Why the Canadian Government Is Confronting Venezuela – by Arnold August – https://www.telesurenglish.net/opinion/Why-the-Canadian-Government-Is-Confronting-Venezuela-20190718-0006.html – “A few days after Chavez’s 2013 death the Globe and Mail’s ‘Report on Business’ published a front-page story about Scotiabank’s interests in Venezuela, which were acquired just before his rise to power. It noted: ‘Bank of Nova Scotia [Scotiabank] is often lauded for its bold expansion into Latin America, having completed major acquisitions in Colombia and Peru. But when it comes to Venezuela, the bank has done little for the past 15 years – primarily because the government of President Hugo Chavez has been hostile to large-scale foreign investment.’.. These considerations no doubt explain why the Trudeau government has been involved in Donald Trump’s attempted coups against Venezuela. Canada is also spearheading the economic sanctions imposed on the country, which recent studies have termed genocidal. Indeed, US-Lima Group policy represents a declaration of war, even though there has yet to be any military intervention as such… Is this the only way Canada can defend the interests of its companies in Venezuela? Surely not. There must be much more “Canadian” approaches that it can draw upon.”

USDA Opens the Door to New Untested, Unlabeled GMOs – by Pat Thomas – https://www.organicconsumers.org/blog/usda-opens-door-untested-unlabeled-gmos – “On June 6, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) proposed to overhaul longstanding regulations governing genetically modified organisms (GMO). The   proposed new rule would revise the agency’s current method for regulating genetically modified plants, and would exclude newer so-called “gene-edited” GMOs… In a statement, the USDA said the new rule came ‘in response to advances in genetic engineering.’.. A week later, in the political equivalent of a one-two-punch, President Trump bolstered the USDA’s proposal by signing an executive order directing the USDA, as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, to “streamline” GMO regulations in the U.S. for agricultural biotechnology, including for genetically modified livestock and seeds… The full import of these two moves, and specifically the threat that they represent to consumer freedom, is only just starting to sink in—and the need for consumer action has become urgent. Contact the USDA here.

Under Brazil’s Far Right Leader, Amazon Protections Slashed and Forests Fall – by Letícia Casado and Ernesto Londoño – https://www.msn.com/en-ie/news/indepth/under-brazils-far-right-leader-amazon-protections-slashed-and-forests-fall/ar-AAEYI9M – “BRASÍLIA — The destruction of the Amazon rain forest in Brazil has increased rapidly since the nation’s new far-right president took over and his government scaled back efforts to fight illegal logging, ranching and mining… Protecting the Amazon was at the heart of Brazil’s environmental policy for much of the past two decades. At one point, Brazil’s success in slowing the deforestation rate made it an international example of conservation and the effort to fight climate change… But with the election of President Jair Bolsonaro, a populist who has been fined personally for violating environmental regulations, Brazil has changed course substantially, retreating from the efforts it once made to slow global warming by preserving the world’s largest rain forest.”

Israel attacks protesters in newly demolished Jerusalem areahttps://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20190727-israel-attacks-protesters-in-newly-demolished-jerusalem-area/ – “Israeli occupation forces yesterday attacked Palestinian protesters in the Wadi Al-Hummus neighbourhood of the occupied Jerusalem town of Sur Baher, Ma’an reported… The protesters gathered on both sides of the illegal Israeli Separation Wall and held Friday prayers in the area to show solidarity with its residents who saw 100 residential units razed this week in what rights groups have described as Israel’s “biggest crime of ethnic cleansing since 1967”… Head of the Committee of Wadi Al-Hummus, Hamada Hamada, said occupation forces attacked Palestinian protesters with gas canisters and rubber bullets, protesters had problems breathing as a result… Mohamed Abu-Teir, member of the committee, said that the Israeli occupation attacked the Palestinian homes adjacent to the Separation Wall, causing many casualties among women and children.”

Technocrats and Neocons Respond to the Polar Silk Road – by Matthew Ehret – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/07/03/technocrats-and-neocons-respond-to-the-polar-silk-road/ – “These three bills combined threaten to devastate the Canadian economy which heavily relies on resource development (especially since its manufacturing sector has been so viciously hollowed out over the course of 25 years of NAFTA outsourcing). Already, Alberta which is a hub of the Canadian Yellow vest movement, is on fire with thousands protesting the shutdown of employment and economic potential under the ideologically driven craze to “stop global warming” (which has a lot more to do with stopping Russia and China than many would care to admit). The beleaguered Trudeau/Freeland government which faces collapse in the upcoming October elections has now found itself in a paradoxical situation of 1) needing to resist the growth policy driven by the Russia-China alliance on the one side while 2) needing to appease the flames of mass revolt within the country on the other side… For this reason, Trudeau also approved the Trans Mountain pipeline project which has been on the rocks for several years. The project will increase oil and natural gas output from Alberta to 890 000 barrels/day by connecting a pipeline from Edmonton Alberta to Burnaby, BC… The Trudeau/Freeland green regime have justified this paradoxical decision by claiming that all profits from the pipeline will now be used to fund Canada’s transition to a zero-growth green energy infrastructure grid which will ironically prohibit all such major projects from ever being built again. If it sounds absurd, that is because all empires committed to a policy of Malthusian depopulation must somehow balance an agenda of killing human cattle on the one side while keeping those cattle happy enough to vote into power those political operatives assigned to cull the herd.” (emphasis added)

How Government Agencies Make Criminals of Crypto Traders – by Graham Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/07/how-government-agencies-make-criminals-of-crypto-traders.html – “A New Jersey man has been indicted this week for converting over $2 million to bitcoin and operating a private exchange business not registered with the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. According to a July 24 press release by the U.S. Attorney’s office, 46-year-old William Green could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted. Green isn’t alone. With tighter and tighter crypto regulations being imposed worldwide, entrepreneurs, small startups, and even unsuspecting hobbyists are being indicted and threatened by the “crypto cop” dragnet.”

US Blocks UN Vote Condemning Israeli Demolition of Palestinian Homes – by Patrick Hennigsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2019/07/27/us-blocks-un-vote-condemning-israeli-demolition-of-palestinian-homes/ – “The United States blocked an attempt to get the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israel’s demolition of Palestinian homes on the outskirts of Jerusalem, diplomats said… Citing 17 Palestinians who would be displaced by the destruction, UN officials had called on Israel to halt the plans. But Israel continued, saying the 10 apartment buildings it demolished on Monday had been built illegally, and posed a threat to Israeli armed forces along the occupied West Bank. Most of the homes were still under construction.” – Comment: Imagine if the Israelis ruled the world.

Time Runs Out on Operation Ukraine – by Tom Luongo – https://theduran.com/time-runs-out-on-operation-ukraine/ – “For the first few months of his presidency Zelensky has sent mixed signals as to what he intends to do on the world stage. He’s offered to meet with Putin, who then asked saliently, ‘to what end?’.. He’s tried to pull back on the conflict only to see the shelling continue and, at times, intensify… Zelensky is dealing with the same kind of bureaucratic revolt against change that Donald Trump has dealt with. In fact, it’s the same people running the both shows… If there was one thing that has become glaringly obvious over the past three years it is that the coup attempt by the bureaucracy against Trump it is that much of it was cooked up in Ukraine under the dutiful eye of former President Poroshenko.”

Vanity Fair: ‘Prominent Republicans’ Think Jeffrey Epstein ‘Was A Mossad Agent’ – by Chris Menahan – http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=60510 – “Epstein remained a fixture in elite circles even after he was a registered sex offender. A few years ago, for example, he was a guest at a dinner in Palo Alto hosted by LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman for the MIT neuroscientist Ed Boyden. At the dinner, Elon Musk introduced Epstein to Mark Zuckerberg… One source who’s done business with Epstein told me that Epstein’s 21,000-square-foot townhouse on East 71st Street welcomed a steady stream of the Davos crowd in the past decade. The source said Bill Gates, Larry Summers, and Steve Bannon visited the house, which has been called one of the largest private residences in Manhattan. “Jeffrey collected people. That’s what he did,” the source said. Gates and Summers did not respond to requests for comment.”

Top University Artificial Intelligence Experts Warn of “Technical Flaws” In Pre-Crime Police Systems – by Nicholas West  – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/07/top-university-artificial-intelligence-experts-warn-of-technical-flaws-in-pre-crime-police-systems.html – ” A new paper released by MIT entitled “Technical Flaws of Pretrial Risk Assessments Raise Grave Concerns” has been signed by some of the highest level university experts in the field of A.I. and law… Despite this very esteemed panel of mainstream contributors, their concerns about the current state of artificial intelligence in law enforcement and the justice system align with those which readers of alternative media already would be quite familiar… The document is naturally filled with a bit of technical jargon and euphemistic language, but it’s still fairly concise at around 4 pages.  Their main concerns appear in the Summary. My emphasis added.. ”

“Earnings Recession” Is Here – Big Companies All Over America Are Reporting Disastrous Financial Results – by Michael Snyder – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/07/earnings-recession-is-here-big-companies-all-over-america-are-reporting-disastrous-financial-results.html – “If the U.S. economy really was “booming”, then corporate earnings would be rising.  But that isn’t happening.  In fact, we haven’t seen corporate earnings fall like this since the last recession.  They fell during the first quarter of this year, and based on the results we have so far, it appears that corporate earnings will be down substantially once again in the second quarter.  When corporate earnings drop for two quarters in a row, that is officially considered to be an “earnings recession”, and that normally occurs just before the overall economy plunges into recession territory.  As things get tighter for our corporate giants, we should expect a lot more layoffs in the months ahead, and the unemployment rate should rise quite briskly.  In other words, it looks like our economic problems are about to accelerate substantially.”

What does affordable housing have to do with climate change? – by Brianna Bilter – https://www.streetsensemedia.org/article/greenhouse-gases-gentrification-economic-segregation/#.XTteA0d7m02 – “There is broad consensus among the international scientific community that the need to address climate change is dire. The United Nations has set an urgent deadline of 2030 to implement global emission policies, warning that a perilous rise in global temperature will occur if they are not met… The advocacy group Greater Greater Washington and the D.C. Democratic Socialists of America organized a panel of academic and policy experts to identify how the District could meet these goals while also addressing its struggles with an affordable housing crisis and increasing inequality… ‘Environmentalists know transportation is the elephant in the room,’ Alex Baca, the housing program organizer for Greater Greater Washington, wrote in an article for Slate. ‘At first blush, the easiest way to attack that problem is to electrify everything, and that’s largely what the Green New Deal calls for.’ ” – Comment: “ The ‘broad consensus among the international scientific community’ exists only in the mind of Green New Dealers. Alternative energy drives prices UP, not down and housing prices go up! This is the polar opposite of what they claim.” –Patrick Wood, Technocracy.news

Chinese Bank With $100 Billion In Assets Is About To Collapse – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-25/chinese-bank-100-billion-assets-about-collapse – “We were right, because not even two months later, the second biggest bank on the list, Bank of Jinzhou has crawled in Baoshang’s foosteps and is about to be seized by the government…According to Reuters and Bloomberg, Bank of Jinzhou recently met financial institutions in its home Liaoning province to discuss measures to deal with liquidity problems, and in a parallel bailout to that of Baoshang, the bank was in talks to “introduce strategic investors” after a report that China’s financial regulators are seeking to resolve its liquidity problems sent its dollar-denominated debt plunging… Officials including those from the People’s Bank of China and China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission recently held a meeting with financial institutions in Bank of Jinzhou’s home province of Liaoning to discuss measures to resolve the lender’s liquidity issues, Reuters reported Wednesday… In response to market fears the bank issued a statement on Thursday that “currently, Bank of Jinzhou’s business operations are normal overall,” which however did not refer to its liquidity situation. ‘Recently, the bank’s board of directors and some major shareholders have been in talks with several institutions that wish to and have the ability to to become strategic investors’ adding that talks have been ‘going smoothly.’ ”

U.S. Is Building New Large Base With Airstrip In Northwestern Syriahttps://southfront.org/u-s-is-building-new-large-base-with-airstrip-in-northwestern-syria/ – “The US-led coalition is building a new large base with an airstrip near the northern Syrian town of al-Darbasiyah next to the Turkish border… A delegation of the US-led coalition, accompanied by SDF commanders, inspected the Tabqa airbase in Raqqa, last month. Back then, opposition sources said that the coalition is planning to deploy troops and helicopters there… Earlier this year, President Donald Trump backed down from his decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria. These new reports suggest that the U.S. is now working to step up its military presence in the war-torn country.”

Ukraine’s SBU Detained Russian Tanker Allegedly Involved In Kerch Strait Incidenthttps://southfront.org/ukraines-sbu-detained-russian-tanker-allegedly-involved-in-kerch-strait-incident/ – “The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) announced on July 25 that it had detained Russia’s Nika Spirit (Neyma) tanker at the port of Izmail. The SBU claimed that the tanker was used to block the movement of Ukrainian Navy ships during the Kerch Strait incident… The developments with the tanker demonstrate that the government of newly-elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is not going to provide a course really different from those of Petro Poroshenko.”

New MH17 Documentary Proves Beyond a Doubt that a Cover-Up Took Placehttps://southfront.org/new-mh17-documentary-proves-beyond-a-doubt-that-a-cover-up-took-place/– “The “official” narrative blames Russia for this tragedy, but it’s since been revealed through the new evidence and testimonies that active efforts involving a broad array of countries were undertaken from the get-go to paint Moscow as the culprit despite there being no facts whatsoever to back up that provocative claim… “MH17 – Call For Justice” sheds light on the dark truth of what happened immediately after the plane’s downing, with  journalist John Helmer’s summary of the 28-minute-long documentary pointing out the key takeaways for those who don’t have the time to watch it in full.”

Russian Foreign Ministry Slams Facts Distortion By MSM In Response To UK Decision To Fine RThttps://southfront.org/russian-foreign-ministry-slams-facts-distortion-by-msm-in-response-to-uk-decision-to-fine-rt/ – “British media regulator Ofcom announced today its decision to impose a £200,000 fine on RT for what it referred to as serious failures to comply with broadcasting rules. Ofcom’s investigation found that RT “failed to preserve due impartiality” in seven news and current affairs programmes between March 17 and April 26, 2018. In its statement, the regulator voiced concern over the frequency of rule-breaking over a relatively short period of time… It is worth noting that the fine was not imposed by court order, although the legitimacy of the regulator’s claims against the television network should be ascertained under judicial review. The amount of the fine is also questionable, since it substantially exceeds fines imposed on other media outlets for hate speech and incitement to violence, while RT faces the subjective charge of insufficient impartiality.”

Pentagon Wants 16-Year-Old Kids to Fight the Empire’s Wars – by Kurt Nimmo – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/07/pentagon-wants-16-year-old-kids-to-fight-the-empires-wars.html – “The Pentagon is desperate. Far too many millennials are criminals, so luring them in to become the latest crop of bullet stoppers for the state is a nonstarter… Solution? Recruit 16 year olds. Most have yet graduated to petty and violent crime, although a lot of them are in video game training for a future of violence and self-destructive stupidity… It’s not being widely reported in the media. Recruiters are ready to go after tenth-graders. They are itching to snag kids before they engage in a life of crime, or before they have fully mature brains (well, some of them) and decide to kill and be killed isn’t much of a career choice.”

Iran – Seizure of a British Tanker – more than Tit for Tat – by Peter Koenig – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/51982.htm – “Backtracking to 4 July, when the British Royal Marines seized the Iranian tanker Grace 1 in Spanish waters, off the coast of Gibraltar, under the pretext that the super tanker was carrying oil destined for Syria which was under the EU’s sanction program. Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, denied that the oil was destined for Syria; did however not elaborate further… Spanish Foreign Minister, Mr. Josep Borrell, said that Washington informed Spain about the impending capture by the UK of the Iranian tanker in Spanish territorial waters. Spain could have said ‘no’ – but didn’t. Why not? Afraid of sanctions?.. The UK did the bidding of Washington against her own interests, because the UK was one of three EU countries – Germany, France and UK – who at least made appear as if they wanted to preserve their part of the Iran Nuclear Deal. Mind you, this is not for love of Iran, but pure business interest. Iran should be aware of that – meaning, Iran could be shot in the back at any time by the EU, by the very countries that try – or make appear they try – to circumvent the US sanctions… What happened on 4 July was an act of sheer piracy, nothing less. A crime on high seas which the west just tolerated. The vessel is still under British control, while the arrested crew has since been liberated. Aside from the fact that Iran’s capture of the British oil tanker may look like tit for tat – Iran acted fully legitimate, as it’s Revolutionary Guard is policing the Strait of Hormus for security of other ships sailing through the narrow passage.”

What Tulsi Gabbard’s caving in to the Israel Lobby really shows – by The Saker – http://thesaker.is/what-tulsi-gabbards-caving-in-to-the-israel-lobby-really-shows/ – “A very wise friend of mine wrote this about why Gabbard had to cave in: ‘I told you she is a single issue politician. It’s about wars without end. Everything else is Realpolitik and nothing is more real than Zionists controlling the politics and legislation in Washington.  She would have no hope of surviving the next round of laws. They are going to make anything “anti-Israel” equal “anti-Semitic” and that will be a crime like it is in France. She has high ideals on only a single issue. It’s a great issue. But you cannot count on a politician to be a noble warrior. Forget anyone doing the right thing all the time.  She shines bright on one issue. If she was really wise or clever, she would have abstained. So, she is neither.’.. Again, I can only agree with him.”

Did UK, Zionist, and Soviet Spies Assassinate Several Top US Politicians after WW2? – by Ron Unz – https://russia-insider.com/en/did-uk-zionist-and-soviet-spies-assassinate-several-top-us-politicians-after-ww2/ri27488 – “Excluding the much larger number of less notable fatalities, here is a short list of six prominent Americans whose untimely passing during 1944-1949 surely evoked considerable relief within various organizations known for their ruthless tactics: ● Wendell Wilkie, lifelong Democrat nominated for President by the Republicans in 1940, Died October 8, 1944, Age 52, Heart attack. ● Gen. George Patton, highest-ranking American military officer in Europe, Died December 21, 1945, Age 60, Car accident. ● Harry Hopkins, FDR’s “Deputy President,” Died January 29, 1946, Age 55, Various possible causes. ● Harry Dexter White, Soviet agent who ran the Treasury under FDR, Died August 16, 1948, Age 55, Heart attack. ● Laurence Duggan, Soviet agent, Prospective Secretary of State under Henry Wallace, Died December 20, 1948, Age 43, Fall from 16th story window.  ● James Forrestal, former Secretary of Defense, Died May 22, 1949, Age 57, Fall from 18th story window…. I do not think that any similar sort of list of comparable individuals during that same time period could be produced for Britain, France, the USSR, or China.”

Mayors call for new ‘Marshall Plan,’ federal resiliency office to fight climate change – A committee of 10 Democrats promised to continue studying climate change, holding more hearings and fostering partnerships with governments at all other levels as well as the private sector – by Chris Teale – https://www.smartcitiesdive.com/news/mayors-call-for-new-marshall-plan-federal-resiliency-office-to-fight-cli/558988/ – “Peduto said the plan would help every city and town left behind by the changing economy to create programs and jobs in renewable energy, build a cleaner economy and address the intersection of climate change and inequity… ‘What needs to happen is there need to be federal programs created that aren’t just looking at how much our carbon reduction is, but what the economic benefit will be, what the opportunities for employment will be, how this will help areas that have been left behind,’ Peduto said.”

“Electromagnetic Attack” Sparks Massive Blackouts Across Venezuela – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-22/electromagnetic-attack-sparks-massive-blackouts-across-venezuela-breaking-report – “Widespread power blackouts were first reported on Monday evening across 15 Venezuelan states and Caracas… Venezuelan information minister Jorge Rodrigues said an “electromagnetic attack caused the nationwide blackout” and power companies along with government officials, are in the process of restoring the nation’s power grid… Widespread power outages and no internet connectivity have occurred just before Juan Guaidó, the self-proclaimed interim president of Venezuela, is expected to launch nationwide anti-Maduro protests on Tuesday.”

How FDR Forced Japan to Attack Pearl Harbor While Lying About Trying to Avoid War – by J. Alfred Powell – https://russia-insider.com/en/how-fdr-forced-japan-attack-pearl-harbor-while-lying-about-trying-avoid-war/ri27491 – “A Second World War Navy radioman turned journalist, Robert Stinnett was in the National Archives in Belmont, California, researching a campaign-year picture book on George Bush’s South Pacific wartime navy career in aerial reconnaissance — George Bush: His World War II Years (Washington, D.C., Brassey’s, 1992) — and encountered unindexed duplicate copies of Pearl Harbor radio intercept records of Japanese Navy code transmissions — documentary evidence of what actually happened at Pearl Harbor and how it came about… After eight years of further research and a prolonged case at law under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain partial release of these materials, Stinnett published Day of Deceit (2000). A Japanese translation appeared within a year, understandably… Stinnett demonstrates, on the basis of extensive incontrovertible factual evidence and self-evidently accurate analysis that President Roosevelt oversaw the contrivance and deployment of a closely-guarded secret plan to goad the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor and monitor them while they did it.”

MH17 Turnabout: Ukraine’s Guilt Now Provenhttp://www.newsilkstrategies.com/news–analysis/mh17-turnabout-ukraines-guilt-now-proven – ” ‘In the film, Malaysian Prime Minister Mohamad Makhathia and the head of the Malaysian Government’s investigative team and Colonel Mohamad Sakri, director of the National Security Council, say that a 9,000-strong NATO contingent was ready to enter the Donbass.’..  Is this planned NATO incursion into eastern Ukraine perhaps the motive for the shoot-down of the plane by the Ukrainian government? It has been pointed out that the Russian speakers of Donbass had absolutely no motive for murdering all those innocent people. But when you consider the over 100,000 mostly innocent civilians killed by the US air armed forces in Iraq, and the hundreds of thousands of innocents killed by the Wahhabist killers imported by the US and its Saudi allies into Syria under the pretext of saving Syrians from the government they mostly trust and approve of, you can see that the US government has absolutely no concern for the life and limb of innocents and will manufacture evidence even if it means murdering people. Further, the fake Iraqi WMDs used as a casus belli and the unproven stories of Assad “poisoning his own people” as a pretext to fire on his installations show how underhanded and sneaky the US government and its allies are in their fabrication of “evidence” to indict those it deems adversaries.”

Greece’s New Government: Undoing the Damage of Years of Socialist Rule – by Maria Polizoidou – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/14569/greece-undoing-damage – “The new government took office with an apparent sense of genuine purpose… The new government has transferred the handling of illegal immigration from the auspices of the Ministry for Migration Policy to that of the Ministry of Citizen Protection, treating the issue as a national-security threat… The Mitsotakis-led government is also reversing its predecessor’s course where foreign policy is concerned, stressing a desire to enhance Greek-American relations. One step in illustrating a closer alliance with the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump is the recognition of Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s transitional president in his battle against Nicolás Maduro. Another step is strengthening ties with Israel.” (emphasis added)

PA School Board Would Rather Put Kids In FOSTER CARE Than Take a Donation for Overdue Lunch Bills – by Daisy Luther –  https://www.theorganicprepper.com/pennsylvania-school-overdue-lunch-bills/ – “Dozens of families opened the most shocking letter of their lives last week when the Wyoming Valley West School District, one of the poorest districts in the state, attempted to collect overdue lunch money tabs by threatening to have their children removed from the home if they didn’t pony up immediately… The letter was only sent to the “worst” offenders – meaning those whose children had a meal debt of $10 or more… ‘Your child has been sent to school every day without money and without a breakfast and/or lunch,’ the 200-word letter read. ‘This is a failure to provide your child with proper nutrition and you can be sent to Dependency Court for neglecting your child’s right to food. If you are taken to Dependency court, the result may be your child being removed from your home and placed in foster care.’.. ‘The foster care system should never be viewed as a punitive agency or weaponized to terrorize children and families,’ said Luzerne County Manager David Pedri, who noted that county officials have asked the school district to stop using the language contained in the letter. (source)…Carmichael said Tuesday in a phone interview that his offer stands: ‘I’m just going to hold on and I’m going to continue to be optimistic and see if we can’t do something,’ Carmichael said. ‘Even if you’re a difficult person, we’re in. What can we do?’ (source)”

Attorney Arrested in Tennessee Refuses to be Gagged – How One Woman Dares to Take a Stand Against Child Kidnappings by CPS  (w/video 55min) – by Brian Shilhavy – http://healthimpactnews.com/2019/attorney-arrested-in-tennessee-refuses-to-be-gagged-how-one-woman-dares-to-take-a-stand-against-child-kidnappings-by-cps/ – “Attorney Connie Reguli has done the nation a huge favor by exposing the rationale behind her criminal charges, and presenting her case publicly. She is doing all the “wrong” things for all the right reasons… Any attorney would advise their client not to “tip their hand” by laying out their legal argument ahead of time, giving their opponent an opportunity to prepare their case against their legal strategy, especially in a public forum… If you watch her video below, you will get a great overview of Constitutional law and how the current child welfare system operates almost entirely outside the boundaries of the U.S. Constitution… Attorney Reguli is putting her own personal freedom and safety aside to use this opportunity to educate the American public on the nationwide failures of a system ripping families apart and destroying the lives of America’s children… I am sure she is not unaware of the case just to the south of her, where Arkansas Senator Linda Collins-Smith was found murdered in her home recently, cutting short her efforts to investigate abuses in the Child Welfare system… Reguli wants the nation to know why, for perhaps the first time in the U.S., a family law attorney was arrested and charged with criminal charges while representing her client in a family law matter.”

More Than 50 E-Scooters Pulled From Portland River –  by Conor Cawley – https://tech.co/news/e-scooters-pulled-portland-river-2019-07 – “Vandalizing e-scooters, particularly throwing them into large bodies of water, is hardly new at this point. From Austin and Denver to Chicago and Nashville, citizens have thrown them into trash cans, traffic, and yes, rivers and lakes. The practice has become so commonplace, in fact, that you can find dozens of accounts on Twitter and Instagram dedicated to their destruction… However you feel about e-scooters, it’s safe to say that petty vandalism is hardly the best way to go about expressing those feelings. In fact, considering one of the primary complaints against e-scooters is that they clutter up the city, throwing them, breaking them, and submerging them in water only serves to clearly exasperate that problem.
