South Korea Considering Pulling Troops Away From DMZ 'On a Trial Basis'

South Korea Considering Pulling Troops Away From DMZ 'On a Trial Basis' | 26 July 2018 | The South Korean Defense Ministry announced Tuesday that it wants to test the waters for a "full-scale pullout" of its forces from the Demilitarized Zone separating it from North Korea by removing some guards and equipment "on a trial basis." As the name implies, the DMZ itself contains sparse military forces and border guards, aside from the million-odd landmines littering the 2.5-mile-wide space between the border fences. However, not far from the frontier, about 70 percent of the South Korean army is deployed, along with the US 8th Army, the Straits-Times notes.

GOP lawmakers introduce articles of impeachment against Rosenstein | 25 July 2018 | A group of conservative House lawmakers on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the top Department of Justice (DOJ) official overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. The introduction of the resolution is the latest sign of escalating efforts among conservatives to oust the DOJ's No. 2 official. Conservative members led by Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), along with nine co-sponsors, introduced the articles shortly after a meeting with DOJ officials concerning document production. "For 9 months we've warned them consequences were coming, and for 9 months we've heard the same excuses backed up by the same unacceptable conduct," Meadows, the head of the House Freedom Caucus, said in a statement.

US releases $200mn in military aid to Ukraine | 21 July 2018 | Just days after the Helsinki summit between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Washington has cleared the transfer of $200 million in military assistance to [the illegitimate regime running] Ukraine. The sum, earmarked for "security assistance," was allocated months ago, but was kept on hold pending "a series of defense reforms" the US demanded of Kiev. On Friday, the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington announced that the funds have been released - which was soon confirmed to CNN by Major Sheryll Klinkel, a Pentagon spokeswoman. Citing another unnamed Pentagon official, CNN reported that the funding will be used for training, counter-artillery radars, high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles ("Humvees"), night vision goggles, as well as communications and medical equipment.

Breaking: Trump delays second Putin summit for 2019 over 'Russia witch hunt' - Bolton | 25 July 2018 | US President Donald Trump has decided to postpone the next meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin until sometime in 2019, after the 'Russia witch hunt' ends, national security adviser John Bolton said. "The president believes that the next bilateral meeting with President Putin should take place after the Russia witch hunt is over, so we've agreed that it will be after the first of the year," Bolton said in a statement. Following the summit in Helsinki, Finland last week, Trump asked Bolton to invite Putin to Washington "in the fall" of 2018. The US president tweeted that he was looking forward to the second meeting, so the two leaders could continue addressing the problems discussed in Helsinki, such as "stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more."

Twitter is shadow-banning prominent Republicans [and thousands of anti-Deep State posters] like the RNC chair and Trump Jr.'s spokesman

Twitter is shadow-banning prominent Republicans [and thousands of anti-Deep State posters] like the RNC chair and Trump Jr.'s spokesman | 25 July 2018 | Twitter is limiting the visibility of prominent Republicans [and thousands of anti-Deep State posters] in search results -- a technique known as "shadow-banning" -- in what it says is a side effect of its attempts to improve the quality of discourse on the platform [aka promote the Deep State's agenda of endless war, surveillance, and corporatism]. The Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel, several conservative Republican congressmen, and Donald Trump Jr.'s spokesman no longer appear in the auto-populated drop-down search box on Twitter, VICE News has learned. It’s a shift that diminishes their reach on the platform... Democrats are not being "shadow-banned" in the same way, according to a VICE News review. Not a single member of the 78-person Progressive Caucus faces the same situation in Twitter's search.

North Korea Begins Dismantling Key Facilities at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station

North Korea Begins Dismantling Key Facilities at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station | 23 July 2018 | In an important first step towards fulfilling a commitment made by Kim Jong Un at the June 12 Singapore Summit, new commercial satellite imagery of the Sohae Satellite Launching Station (North Korea's main satellite launch facility since 2012) indicates that the North has begun dismantling key facilities. Most notably, these include the rail-mounted processing building--where space launch vehicles are prepared before moving them to the launch pad--and the nearby rocket engine test stand used to develop liquid-fuel engines for ballistic missiles and space launch vehicles. Since these facilities are believed to have played an important role in the development of technologies for the North's intercontinental ballistic missile program, these efforts represent a significant confidence building measure on the part of North Korea.

Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday railed against former top intelligence officials who have been critical of the Trump administration during an event for mostly high-school-age conservatives. "We've got some bad apples that need to be dismissed from the swamp of Washington, sent on their way," Paul said during a dinner hosted by Turning Point USA's High School Leadership Summit. "I'm thinking maybe, how about John Brennan, No. 1. Does anybody in their right mind think that John Brennan, who said that the president is treasonous, should have a security clearance?" the senator added, referring to the former CIA director under President Obama.

The letter, written by Suzanne Gagnon of Lakewood, was in response to the paper's editorial last week, which gave tepid praise of Gardner.

Greece wildfires kill over 70, including 26 huddled near beach outside of Athens

Greece wildfires kill over 70, including 26 huddled near beach outside of Athens | 24 July 2018 | A firestorm that swept through a seaside resort town near the Greek capital killed at least 70 people, including families with children found clasped in a last embrace near a beach as they tried to flee the flames, officials said. The two largest wildfires -- one 20 miles northeast of Athens near Rafina, the other 30 miles west of the capital in Kineta -- broke out Monday during hot, dry summer conditions. Fanned by gale-force winds that frequently changed direction, the flames spread rapidly into populated seaside towns -- too fast for many who were in their cars or homes to flee, fire department spokeswoman Stavroula Malliri said. The Greek fire brigade said the death toll has risen to 74 as of Tuesday.

Today we get an answer, thanks to a study carried out by Hubert and a couple of colleagues. "In January 2017, we came across a series of Californian wines (Cabernet Sauvignon) from vintage 2009 to 2012," say Hubert and company. Hubert and his colleagues found measurable amounts of cesium-137 above background levels in the wine produced after 2011.

Trump claims his campaign was illegally 'spied upon' and welcomes release of top secret documents on former aide Carter Page which 'show the DOJ and FBI misled courts' | 22 July 2018 | President Trump has said it looks more and more like his campaign for the 2016 presidential election had been 'illegally spied upon'.

Prominent holistic doctor's body found floating in Bay Area

Prominent holistic doctor's body found floating in Bay Area | 18 July 2018 | Dr. Cheung is the latest holistic doctor to be found dead in our "unintended series." We are at 93 in just three short years.

Cheung was reportedly paddling alone. His body was found floating in the water Saturday afternoon. The manner of death has not yet been determined by a coroner. So many of his friends and teammates are in shock, as Cheung was not only a member of the Dragon Max dragon boat team but because he died in the same location where they practiced nearly every day.

Orwellian purge of natural health Facebook pages began as Bayer and Monsanto merged

Orwellian purge of natural health Facebook pages began as Bayer and Monsanto merged | 16 July 2018 | On July 13, 2018, Activist Post reported that Facebook had recently "purged" the pages of more than 80 different independent media outlets and other groups, groups which had more than 40 million Facebook followers combined. And while some claim that this purge is in response to calls for Facebook to further police what some call "fake news," as the Activist Post story points out, a huge percentage of pages being purged were alternative health pages, pages to websites and groups that...were geared towards helping Americans survive health problems without the poisons created in labs by "big pharma." And with this purge of popular alternative health Facebook pages coming at the same time as a still expanding list of mysteriously dead holistic doctors and other natural health care practitioners, we find that it's probably not just a coincidence that this purge of alternative health web pages from Facebook began in June 2018, the same month that the merger made in hell between Bayer and Monsanto was completed.

Ecuador Will Imminently Withdraw Asylum for Julian Assange and Hand Him Over to the UK

Ecuador Will Imminently Withdraw Asylum for Julian Assange and Hand Him Over to the UK | 21 July 2018 | Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno traveled to London on Friday for the ostensible purpose of speaking at the 2018 Global Disabilities Summit... The concealed, actual purpose of the president's trip is to meet with British officials to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection of Julian Assange, in place since 2012, eject him from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and then hand over the WikiLeaks founder to British authorities. A source close to the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry and the president's office, unauthorized to speak publicly, has confirmed to the Intercept that Moreno is close to finalizing, if he has not already finalized, an agreement to hand over Assange to the UK within the next several weeks. The withdrawal of asylum and physical ejection of Assange could come as early as this week. Even under the best-case scenario, it appears highly likely that Assange will continue to be imprisoned by British authorities.
