'Behind me is toothpaste CNN said doesn't exist in Venezuela' - journalist explores markets

'Behind me is toothpaste CNN said doesn't exist in Venezuela' - journalist explores markets | 24 Feb 2019 | Journalist Max Blumenthal visited state-subsidized food markets outside Caracas and, in a new video, showed that what the corporate media says doesn't exist in Venezuela can actually be easily found right at a local market. Blumenthal toured several state-subsidized markets outside the Venezuelan capital, witnessing "hundreds of people" purchasing basic goods there. He says that the produce is "sold well-below market value," adding that the prices appear to be quite affordable for locals as well. The video shows locals leaving with large bags of groceries from the markets.

Conservative activist assaulted at UC-Berkeley campus during recruitment drive | 21 Feb 2019 | University of California police want the public's help tracking down a suspect whose brutal alleged assault of a conservative activist on the Berkeley campus was caught on video. The campus police website said that two men on Tuesday approached a table where the activist was recruiting members to his group, and an argument ensued. The alleged victim, identified by Turning Point USA as Hayden Williams, held up his cell phone and began filming the two men who were allegedly harassing him. One of the two men knocked over the table, police said, and then punched Williams several times, causing injuries to his face.

US-backed opposition caught on video throwing Molotov cocktails at aid truck on Venezuela border

US-backed opposition caught on video throwing Molotov cocktails at aid truck on Venezuela border | 24 Feb 2019 | As Washington and Caracas blame each other for torching a truck carrying what the US called vital 'humanitarian supplies' from Colombia to Venezuela, a video has emerged, finally shedding some light on the incident. The truck caught fire and burned down during a failed attempt on Saturday by US-backed opposition activists to breach the closed Colombia-Venezuela border crossing at the Francisco de Paula Santander Bridge, near the Venezuelan city of Urena. The Venezuelan government refuses to let the American cargo in, calling these 'humanitarian' convoys a propaganda stunt and a precursor to a military invasion...One clip appears to have caught the moment a man on the Colombian side of the border pelted a Molotov cocktail at the truck, while another video from the scene showed the opposition activists openly preparing the incendiary devices.

Trump strikes optimistic note ahead of meeting with North Korea's Kim

Trump strikes optimistic note ahead of meeting with North Korea's Kim | 24 Feb 2019 | President Trump on Sunday expressed optimism ahead of his summit this week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un...Trump in a series of tweets raised the possibility he and Kim could come to an agreement on denuclearization and asserted North Korea would become an economic stalwart if it abandoned its nuclear arsenal. The president will depart on Monday for the meetings in Hanoi, Vietnam where, he said, he and Kim "both expect a continuation of the progress made at first Summit in Singapore." Trump in a separate tweet said that Kim "realizes, perhaps better than anyone else, that without nuclear weapons, his country could fast become one of the great economic powers anywhere in the World. Because of its location and people (and him), it has more potential for rapid growth than any other nation!"

'More secrets': New batch of 'Dark Overlord' 9/11 papers leaked online | 24 Feb 2019 | A mysterious netizen has leaked the decryption key for the third batch of 9/11 documents stolen by hacking collective 'The Dark Overlord.' These documents shed more light on the complicated legal aftermath of the attacks. The latest release reveals more emails hacked from insurance companies, law enforcement agencies and government departments, tasked with managing the lawsuits and insurance claims that arose after the attacks. While the hackers had initially planned on holding the documents for ransom, they eventually released the first two batches after taking bitcoin donations from the public. The decryption key for the third batch, however, was leaked by an anonymous source on Thursday, along with a note reading "You want the True [sic] about 9/11. Here is you change."

9-0: SCOTUS Delivers Devastating Decision to State-Sponsored Seizure Schemes

9-0: SCOTUS Delivers Devastating Decision to State-Sponsored Seizure Schemes | 20 Feb 2019 | The Supreme Court has just put the clamps on states’ ability to impose excessive fines and use civil asset forfeiture to seize private property. On Wednesday February 20, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that the Eight Amendment’s ban on excessive fines also applies to states. This landmark ruling bolsters property rights and could curtail controversial law enforcement seizures, especially those carried out via civil forfeiture. In the decision, Timbs v. Indiana, the Supreme Court sided with small time drug offender Tyson Timbs, whose $42,000 Land Rover was seized by law enforcement officials.

Trump administration directs 1,000 more troops to Mexican border | 22 Feb 2019 | The Pentagon announced Friday that it would direct an additional 1,000 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to install barbed wiring along existing border fences. Defense officials said at a news briefing that the total size of the U.S. deployment of troops to the southern border would reach 6,000 by March 1, with 140 miles of additional Concertina wiring to be installed.

Putin orders immediate action to help 100 orcas and belugas held in cramped 'whale prison' | 22 Feb 2019 | Belugas and orcas being kept in a "whale prison" are still waiting to be freed months after their unfit habitat was discovered by Russian authorities. President Vladimir Putin has ordered that the case be resolved by March 1. Ninety belugas and 11 orcas held in tiny enclosures on Russia's Pacific Coast are still awaiting rescue after investigators learned about their inhumane conditions in November. As a result, the operators of the "prison," the Center for the Adaptation of Marine Mammals, located in a bay near the city of Nakhodka, have come under investigation - a process that has left the whales in limbo...Several whales have allegedly died in the enclosures.

Julian Assange on the move? WikiLeaks boss has been issued with a new Australian passport that means he could finally leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and go home

Julian Assange on the move? WikiLeaks boss has been issued with a new Australian passport that means he could finally leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and go home | 22 Feb 2019 | Julian Assange has been issued with a new Australian passport clearing the way for him to finally leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. The WikiLeaks founder has lived in the embassy in Knightsbridge since 2012 when Swedish authorities requested his extradition as a suspect in a rape case. The Australian denied their claims but refused to travel to Sweden to face them, saying it was part of a ruse to extradite him to the US due to his involvement in the leaking of a huge amount of classified documents in 2010. Swedish prosecutors announced in 2017 that they had closed the rape investigation and a new Australian passport clears the way for Mr Assange to end his political asylum.

NC state board votes for new election in 9th district after Harris calls for new race | 21 Feb 2019 | After a stunning reversal by Republican Mark Harris, North Carolina election officials Thursday unanimously ordered a new election in the 9th Congressional District, which has gained national attention as the last unresolved House race for the 2018 election. The state elections board's vote came after four days of testimony about what the board's staff called "a coordinated, unlawful, and substantially resourced absentee ballot scheme" in Bladen and Robeson counties. And it came less than an hour after a startling announcement by Harris, who had been fighting to have his apparent victory certified.

U.S. to leave 200 American 'peacekeepers' in Syria after pullout - White House

U.S. to leave 200 American 'peacekeepers' in Syria after pullout - White House | 21 Feb 2019 | The United States will leave "a small peacekeeping group" of 200 American troops in Syria for a period of time after a U.S. pullout, the White House said on Thursday. President Donald Trump in December ordered a withdrawal of the 2,000 American troops in Syria on the defeat of the last remnants of the Islamic State militancy there. But he has been under pressure from some advisers [Deep State dirt-bags] to adjust his policy to ensure the protection of Kurdish forces [!?!] who supported the fight against Islamic State and who might now be threatened by Turkey.

Roger Stone cannot speak publicly about case, judge rules

Roger Stone cannot speak publicly about case, judge rules | 21 Feb 2019 | Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Thursday dramatically restricted Roger Stone's ability to speak publicly about his case after he published an Instagram post with what appeared to be the crosshairs of a gun drawn behind her head. Stone may now not speak publicly about the investigation or the case or any participants in the investigation or the case. "Period," Jackson said. The development will in effect silence one of the most outspoken and politicized former advisers of President Donald Trump, as Stone fights against special counsel Robert Mueller in a case related to his interactions in 2016 with Russians and the Trump campaign.

NJ Senate passes bill that would keep Trump off 2020 ballot unless he releases tax returns | 21 Feb 2019 | The New Jersey state Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly voted to pass a bill that would keep presidential candidates off the state's 2020 ballot unless they release their tax returns. According to the Courier Post, the Democratic-controlled state Senate passed the measure along party lines in a 23-11 vote on Thursday, sending the bill to the Assembly committee and full legislature for a vote before it heads to the desk of Gov. Phil Murphy (D) for consideration. The controversial measure would deny candidates for president and vice president a spot on the state ballot if they do not publicly release five of their most recent tax returns at least 50 days before the general election in 2020.

Prosecutors say Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson, who was arrested Friday, was intent on committing white-supremacist terror attacks. Though he was initially arrested on charges of illegal weapons and drug possession, a court filing says those charges are "the proverbial tip of the iceberg."

FBI's top lawyer believed Hillary Clinton should face charges, but was talked out of it

FBI's top lawyer believed Hillary Clinton should face charges, but was talked out of it | 20 Feb 2019 | For most of the past three years, the FBI has tried to portray its top leadership as united behind ex-Director James Comey's decision not to pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for transmitting classified information over her insecure, private email server. Although in the end that may have been the case, we now are learning that Comey's top lawyer, then-FBI General Counsel James Baker, initially believed Clinton deserved to face criminal charges, but was talked out of it "pretty late in the process." The revelation is contained in testimony Baker gave to House investigators last year. His testimony has not been publicly released, but I was permitted to review a transcript.

The lawsuit, filed on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Kentucky by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann, 16, seeks $250 million in damages, the amount that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos paid for the Post in 2013. The lawsuit claims that the newspaper 'wrongfully targeted and bullied' the teen to advance its bias against President Donald Trump because Sandmann is a white Catholic who wore a Make America Great Again souvenir cap on a school field trip to the March for Life pro-life rally in Washington, DC on January 18.

Federal government shares terror watchlist with over 1400 private groups - report --Government has previously denied disseminating list to private groups --Police at private universities, security staff at hospitals, and private correctional facilities are examples of groups who have access | 19 Feb 2019 | The federal government shares its terrorist watchlist with more than 1,400 private groups, according to court papers reported on by the Associated Press. The AP reported Tuesday that Timothy Groh, the deputy director of the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center (TSC), said in a written statement to a federal court that 1,441 private entities can access the watchlist, which is compiled by the TSC. Groh's statement came as part of a class-action lawsuit in federal court in Alexandria, brought by Muslims who say they have been wrongly included on the list. Groh reportedly pointed to police at private universities, security staff at hospitals and private correctional facilities as examples of groups who have access.

Bernie Sanders Launches 2020 Presidential Campaign, No Longer an Underdog

Bernie Sanders Launches 2020 Presidential Campaign, No Longer an Underdog | 19 Feb 2019 | Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is giving it another go, launching a second campaign for the White House four years after surprising Democrats with a strong bid for the party's 2016 nomination. "We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it's time to move that revolution forward," the independent senator told Vermont Public Radio in an interview airing Tuesday morning. But this 2020 bid will undoubtedly be a very different presidential campaign than his quest for the Democratic nomination as an underdog in 2016. Sanders enters the race as a top contender who, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, tops most early polls, far outpacing other Democratic candidates in support and name identification.

President Trump sarcastically had predicted the lawsuit last week. He's slammed the Ninth Circuit multiple times as "disgraceful" and politically biased. The litigation, brought before a federal trial court in the Northern District of California, seeks an injunction to prevent Trump from shifting billions of dollars from military construction to the border without explicit congressional approval.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein expected to leave Justice Department in mid-March | 28 Feb 2019 | Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave the Justice Department in mid-March, according to a Justice Department official who spoke to CNN Monday. The official disputed the idea that the timing of Rosenstein's departure has anything to do with the latest revelations from former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, emphasizing that the plan was always that Rosenstein would help with the transition for his successor and then leave. CNN has previously reported that Rosenstein was planning to leave his post after Barr was confirmed.

'Shoot the president': School cancels assassination party game for kids after public outcry | 18 Feb 2019 | A school running a community arts center in Ohio was forced to stop advertising a party game where kids are instructed to 'eliminate' the president with toy guns, after it sparked national outrage.

'Long live Putin!' Haiti opposition protesters burn US flag, demand Russian intervention | 17 Feb 2019 | As the poorest Caribbean state descends into chaos caused by the corruption of its elites, protesters on the streets are calling for help from a man who has never set foot in the country - Vladimir Putin. "Down with Americans, long live Putin!" chanted around 200 demonstrators in the capital Port-au-Prince on Friday, some holding up printouts with the face of the Russian president. Protesters burned the American flag as criticism of the links between Washington and the unpopular government of President Jovenel Moise. They called Moise, elected in 2016, a US-installed puppet, who is surviving due to US reluctance to exert international pressure.

Amazon will pay $0 in taxes on $11,200,000,000 in profit for 2018

Amazon will pay $0 in taxes on $11,200,000,000 in profit for 2018 | 16 Feb 2019 | While some people have received some surprise tax bills when filing their returns, corporations continue to avoid paying tax -- thanks to a cocktail of tax credits, loopholes, and exemptions. According to a report from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), Amazon will pay nothing in federal income taxes for the second year in a row. Thanks to the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), Amazon's federal tax responsibility is 21% (down from 35% in previous years). But with the help of tax breaks, according to corporate filings, Amazon won’t be paying a dime to Uncle Sam despite posting more than $11.2 billion in profits in 2018.
