Even CNN is tired of Joe Biden lying about having been against the Iraq War

Even CNN is tired of Joe Biden lying about having been against the Iraq War | 06 Jan 2020 | CNN has blasted Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for claiming once again that he opposed the Iraq War from the beginning, when in fact he was an advocate of the war, speaking in favor of it many times. In a piece published on CNN's 'Facts First' blog, Biden was scolded for "dishonestly" claiming he opposed the invasion of Iraq. The fact-check came after Biden told a voter in Iowa at the weekend that he was against the war "from the very moment" George W. Bush launched it. In reality, Biden "repeatedly spoke in favor of the war both before and after it began," CNN wrote. The network called Biden's comment "highly misleading even under the most generous interpretation," given that the former VP was "actually a vocal supporter" of military action and voted to authorize Bush's use of force.

Prospect of gun seizures in Virginia draws threats, promise of armed protest

Prospect of gun seizures in Virginia draws threats, promise of armed protest --Rally is planned for state Capitol Jan. 20 | 05 Jan 2020 | Gun rights advocates and militia members from around the country are urging thousands of armed protesters to descend on Virginia's capital later this month to stop newly empowered Democrats from passing gun-control [seizure] bills. What began as a handful of rural Virginia counties declaring themselves "Second Amendment sanctuaries" has jumped the state's borders and become an Internet phenomenon. Patriot websites and commenters are declaring that Virginia is the place to take a stand against what they see as a national trend of weakening gun rights... The Virginia Citizens Defense League, the grass-roots organization planning the rally, said it has told the state to prepare for as many as 50,000 or even 100,000 people showing up.

'Never seen anything like it': The Australia bush fires are generating vast areas of violent weather

'Never seen anything like it': The Australia bush fires are generating vast areas of violent weather | 06 Jan 2020 | Among the many apocalyptic scenes from the Australian bush fires has been the presence of explosive, towering clouds appearing in the skies above the fire zones of southeastern Australia. These clouds, the most fearsome of which is known as pyrocumulonimbus, or pyroCb for short, are fire-generated thunderstorms. Their presence is an indication that a fire is exhibiting extreme behavior, such as spreading quickly beyond containment lines, switching its direction of movement, and even whipping up fire whirls and full-fledged fire tornadoes. Passengers aboard a Qantas Airlines flight to Canberra learned about the extraordinary forces involved in these clouds over the weekend, when their aircraft accidentally flew through one at high altitude. According to an ABC News account of the flight, the sky outside the aircraft's windows turned bright orange, then pitch black as jarring updrafts shook the plane.

Iraqi parliament passes resolution asking government to cancel request for assistance from US-led coalition

Iraqi parliament passes resolution asking government to cancel request for assistance from US-led coalition | 05 Jan 2020 | Iraq's parliament passed a resolution, urged by its caretaker prime minister, calling for the removal of foreign troops from the country, after the US assassination of a top Iranian general and a commander of an Iraqi militia. The non-binding resolution instructs the government to cancel a request for military assistance from the US-led coalition, which was issued in response to the rise of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS [I-CIA-SIS]). With IS supposedly defeated, Iraq will not need foreign troops to fight the jihadists and can close its airspace to coalition aircraft.

Omar, Lee introduce House resolution preventing US military action against Iran not authorized by Congress

Omar, Lee introduce House resolution preventing US military action against Iran not authorized by Congress | 05 Jan 2020 | Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) said in a press release Sunday that they would introduce a resolution to invoke the War Powers Act to withdraw U.S. troops from hostilities with Iranian-backed forces in the Middle East. The resolution released by the two lawmakers would explicitly tie any military action against Iran to a congressional vote, though the U.S. would not be prevented from responding to an Iranian attack.

Hottest place on earth: Temperatures in Sydney suburb soar to 120F as 8,000 koalas perish in the devastating bushfires sweeping across Australia --Almost half a billion creatures are estimated to have died in the blazes --Rampaging fires have engulfed almost 12 million acres of bushland in Australia --8,000 dead koalas are equal to a third of their population in New South Wales | 05 Jan 2020 | The devastating wildfires sweeping across Australia could force some of the country’s best-loved animals to the brink of extinction, scientists warn. Almost half a billion creatures are estimated to have died in blazes that have now engulfed 12 million acres - an area nearly two thirds the size of the island of Ireland. And the crisis shows no sign of abating. The Penrith suburb of Sydney was the hottest place on Earth yesterday as temperatures soared to 48.9C (120F). Elsewhere in New South Wales, 80mph winds fanned the flames, with thousands of people fleeing their homes to take shelter on beaches.

Bear the Detection Dog is Sniffing Out and Saving Koalas Injured in Australia's Bushfires

Bear the Detection Dog is Sniffing Out and Saving Koalas Injured in Australia's Bushfires | 19 Nov 2019 | Bear is a dog and his job is finding koalas. The border collie/koolie mix with striking blue eyes works with Detection Dogs for Conservation, and has been specially-trained to sniff out displaced, sick, orphaned and injured koalas in the wild, according to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), so he has been busy these past few days. Bushfires are currently raging across Australia's east coast, and they are burning right through prime koala habitat. Experts predict that hundreds of koalas have already died [now at 8,000] in the fires, but Bear is there for the ones that survived.

Julian Castro withdraws from US presidential race

Julián Castro withdraws from US presidential race | 02 Jan 2020 | Former US housing and urban development (HUD) secretary Julián Castro dropped out of the presidential race after lagging in fundraising and opinion polls. As the sole Latino candidate and former mayor of San Antonio, Castro focused a large part of his campaign on immigration reform and criticising President Donald Trump's handling of the border crisis. Castro's departure means the Democratic field loses another minority candidate. With the departure of California Senator Kamala Harris, and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker failing to qualify for December's debate, some have begun to express concern that the party's primary field does not represent the diversity of Democratic voters.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander threatens attacks on 'vital' US destroyers, warships | 04 Jan 2020 | A senior military official in Iran threatened an attack on some 35 "American targets," including "destroyers and warships" near the Persian Gulf Friday night, promising to seek revenge for the killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, according to a report. The latest threat against the U.S. came late Friday night from senior Revolutionary Guards commander Gen. Gholamali Abuhamzeh, a day after top Iranian military general Soleimani was wiped out by an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport.

Breaking: Iraqi air base housing US troops comes under rocket fire north of Baghdad | 04 Jan 2020 | Iraq's Balad Air Base, which hosts a number of US forces and contractors, has been the subject of a rocket attack.

Harvard hoisted by own petard as 'diversity' students protest decision to deny tenure to 'grievance studies' professor

Harvard hoisted by own petard as 'diversity' students protest decision to deny tenure to 'grievance studies' professor By CLG founder, Michael Rectenwald | 04 Jan 2020 |The US university is learning the hard way that the more concessions are given, the more are demanded, as its own proudly-advertised 'affirmative action' students are now trying to dictate which professors it should employ. Lorgia García Peña, currently an associate professor of Romance languages and literatures at Harvard and the supposed centerpiece of Harvard's fledging Ethnic Studies program, was denied tenure in late November 2019. Her popularity among Latinx and other minority students, who were baffled and shocked by the decision, has led to sit-ins and protests, and an open letter to university administrators demanding the reversal of the tenure denial, with similar faculties from around the country chiming in with their support...Unfortunately, the scholarship of Peña and other faculty in 'grievance studies' fields -- to use a controversial, but clearly-understood term -- can't be judged on anything like objective standards of excellence. That's because the disciplines are based on the supposed marginalization, exceptionalism, and peculiarity of the fields and those who study them, including both faculty and their students.

Government proposes release of Fukushima's radioactive water to sea or air

Government proposes release of Fukushima's radioactive water to sea or air --Radioactive water continues to accumulate as water used to keep the cores cool leaks from the damaged reactors and is stored in tanks | 23 Dec 2019 | Japan's economy and industry ministry proposed on Monday the gradual release or evaporation of massive amounts of treated but still radioactive water being stored at the tsunami-wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant. The proposal to a group of experts is the first time the ministry has narrowed down the various options available to those choices. It is meant to solve a growing problem for the plant's operator as storage space for the water runs out, despite fears of a backlash from the public.

Kaine introduces resolution to block war with Iran

Kaine introduces resolution to block war with Iran | 03 Jan 2020 | Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on Friday introduced a resolution to block President Trump from further escalating hostilities with Iran. The resolution is privileged, which means Republicans cannot block it from reaching the floor, and comes the day after the surprise drone strike that killed Iraninan Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the leader of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’s elite Quds Force... Kaine's resolution requires that any hostilities with Iran must be explicitly authorized by a congressional declaration of war or a specific authorization for the use of military force, though it does not prevent the United States from defending itself from imminent attack, according to a summary of the measure released by his office.

Fukushima operator accused of cover-up over radioactive water set to be poured into the Pacific

Fukushima operator accused of cover-up over radioactive water set to be poured into the Pacific | 19 Nov 2019 | The Japanese government has been accused of a cover-up after it refused to allow independent testing of water from the Fukushima power plant that is likely to be released into the Pacific Ocean. Officials at the industry ministry on Monday said the water stored at the crippled nuclear site was "safe" to release into the Pacific Ocean, despite concerns about radioactive material from environmental and citizens' groups. Following a recent visit to the plant, the Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) told The Telegraph that concerns over security prevented independent testing... Tepco was forced to admit earlier this year that efforts to remove varying amounts of 62 radionuclides - including strontium, iodine, caesium and cobalt - from the water through the ALPS equipment had not been completely successful.

House, blue states ask Supreme Court to immediately review ObamaCare case

House, blue states ask Supreme Court to immediately review ObamaCare case | 03 Jan 2020 | The House and a group of Democratic-led states on Friday asked the Supreme Court to immediately review a lawsuit seeking to overturn ObamaCare. The Democratic-led House and the blue states asked for the Supreme Court to take up the case in its current term and hand down a decision before leaving in June, an unusually fast timeline. They argued that speed is necessary to remove the uncertainty hanging over the health care system and the millions of people who get health insurance from ObamaCare by resolving the case soon, rather than letting lower court proceedings play out for years.

6 killed in airstrike north of Baghdad targeting convoy carrying Shia militia members - report | 03 Jan 2020 | A convoy carrying members of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), an umbrella group of Iran-backed militias, was hit by an airstrike while traveling in Baghdad, media reports say.

Six militiamen were reported killed in the attack, with three others critically injured. It remains unclear who carried out the strike.

3,500 more troops from Fort Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division to deploy to Middle East

3,500 more troops from Fort Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division to deploy to Middle East | 03 Jan 2020 | A U.S. official confirms to ABC News that approximately 3,500 more troops from Fort Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division will deploy to the Middle East, leaving the military installation as early as this weekend. The decision is in anticipation of a possible retaliatory attack by Iran or its proxies for a U.S. airstrike near Baghdad's airport that killed a top Iranian general who had been the architect of its interventions across the Middle East...The official indicated the troops would likely join the 750 soldiers from the 82nd who already arrived in Kuwait.

"At the direction of the president, the US military has taken decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani," the Pentagon said in a statement. The Pentagon said that the assassination was a response to "attacks on coalition bases in Iraq," accusing Soleimani of being the mastermind behind a recent spate of missile attacks on joint US and Iraqi military installations

The figures released by the agency focus on projects at Superfund sites, highlighting a backlog of work designed to clean up dangerous contamination. In 2019, the EPA did not have funding to begin work on 34 Superfund sites, a number more than 50 percent above the highest figures from the Obama administration.

Neocon Pundit Wishes Cancer on Trump, Ron Paul, and Pat Buchanan

Neocon Pundit Wishes Cancer on Trump, Ron Paul, and Pat Buchanan | 30 Dec 2019 | Like clockwork, a neoconservative writer resorts to smear tactics to sully right wing figures who dare challenge the status quo. Shay Khatiri, a writer for the neocon outlet the Bulwark and a fan of establishment darling [Deep State dirt-bag] Nikki Haley, recently tweeted about Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, and Donald Trump and how there is "no justice in this world" because they're alive and well. He specifically tweeted, "John McCain, Charles Krauthammer, and now John Lewis get cancer. Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, and Donald Trump are healthy. There is no justice in this world."

Heil Bandera: Ukrainian nationalists hold torchlight parade to celebrate Nazi collaborator's birthday

Heil Bandera: Ukrainian nationalists hold torchlight parade to celebrate Nazi collaborator's birthday | 01 Jan 2020 | Thousands of nationalists In Kiev have celebrated the New Year with torchlight parades in honor of Stepan Bandera, a WWII nationalist regarded by modern Ukrainians as a hero and by Poles, Jews and Russians as a war criminal. Blue-and-yellow Ukrainian national flags mingled with red-and-black banners of the Bandera's Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) and its armed wing, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), responsible for the mass murder and persecution in what is today western Ukraine, during the last years of the Second World War. [WHY is the US providing *any* aid to the Nazis running Ukraine?]

Iran-backed militiamen withdraw from siege of US Embassy in Baghdad as more American troops deployed

Iran-backed militiamen withdraw from siege of US Embassy in Baghdad as more American troops deployed | 01 Jan 2020 | The siege outside of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad came to an end Wednesday afternoon after dozens of pro-Iran militiamen and their supporters withdrew from the compound. The two-day crisis started early Tuesday, when, in an orchestrated assault, hundreds of militiamen stormed the embassy compound, one of the most heavily fortified U.S. diplomatic missions in the world. As the militiamen cleared the area, smoke still rose from a section of the compound building where hours before they had lit a fire on the roof.

FBI, NYPD upping security at large local Jewish gatherings this week

FBI, NYPD upping security at large local Jewish gatherings this week | 30 Dec 2019 | The FBI and NYPD are beefing up security at two large local Jewish events this week in the wake of recent anti-Semitic violence in the area, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Monday. “Everybody's on edge," a source said. "There will be a heavy law-enforcement presence of both the FBI and police because of everything going on upstate and in Brooklyn." The source was referring to Saturday's machete attack on a Hanukkah gathering in Monsey in Rockland County and the slew of anti-Semitic attacks in the city, mainly in heavily Jewish enclaves in Brooklyn, during the holiday last week.

Grafton, 37, is charged with five counts of obstructing the free exercise of religious beliefs by attempting to kill with a dangerous weapon and causing injuries, according to the Associated Press. The complaint alleges that after storming inside on Saturday night, Grafton, who had a scarf covering his face, declared that "no one is leaving," took out a machete and started slashing and stabbing people, AP said.
