The Banksy wall was always close to my heart. It was the border image I had at the top of my website for 11 years before WordPress took it all away from me.
My hat is off to Adam for going to Palestine and reporting from the ground there.
"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." Don LemonProblem solved
"Normally you are pretty good at keeping your "eye on the ball".... Khashoggi, the caravan, and now the fake bombing shit seem like distraction ploys to me. A few days ago Israel deployed 60 battle tanks to the border of Gaza... while the head of the IDF is making much noise about how "they have no choice" but to act...." J.Y.This morning, Israel has attacked Gaza once again launching 80 airstrikes against targets inside the world's "largest open air prison"
"None of the devices harmed anyone, and it was not immediately clear whether any of them could have..."So...
"They had a very bad original concept. It was carried out poorly, and the cover-up was one of the worst in the history of cover-ups. There should have never been an execution or a cover-up, because it should have never happened. I would say it was a total fiasco from day one." President TrumpSo lets run back over the official story real quick too see if I have it mapped out correctly.
"Saudi Vision 2030 has been described as a “neo-liberal blueprint”. It envisages, among hundreds of initiatives, privatizing entire sectors of the economy, cutting subsidies, courting investors at home and abroad, streamlining government services, and going public with the national oil company, Saudi Aramco.
In its two-year review of Saudi Vision 2030, issued in May 2018, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) declared that Saudi Arabia was making “good progress” in implementing reforms likely to help spur economic growth." Neville Teller Oct. 2018
"Moscow: Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Russia Rayed Krimly on Friday expressed hope that Washington would not impose sanctions on Riyadh over purchase of the Russian S-400 air defense missile systems.
“I hope that no one will impose any sanctions on us,” Krimly told reporters answering the question whether Saudi Arabia would continue to discuss the issue of deliveries of the S-400 after the United States imposed sanctions against China for a deal with Russia.
He noted that the Saudi Arabia-Russia agreement on the arms purchase was in the works despite the possible US sanctions.
“Our cooperation with Russia continues and grows. And during King Salman’s historic visit [to Russia] we have signed 14 agreements that began to be implemented. There were four agreements in the military field; three of them began to be implemented. As for the fourth … there is discussion of the technical issues. Because the system itself is modern and complex,” the ambassador concluded" SaiSat Sept. 21, 2018
“A North Korean state newspaper is celebrating the country’s leader over the resumption of face-to-face talks with the South, saying Kim Jong Un’s policy to improve relations were “brilliant” for “national reunification.”
The article in state newspaper Rodong Sinmun said recent high-level talks “proved again that there is no problem unsolvable if the North and the South pool their efforts.”
In talks Tuesday, the North agreed to send a delegation to next month’s Winter Olympics in South Korea and to hold talks with Seoul to ease military tensions…
Despite climate and terrain favorable for participating in cold-weather sports, North Korea hasn’t sent a delegation to the Winter Olympics since 1992.” CNN
under President Trump’s leadership, the United States is standing where it should firmly be: On the side of Israel.
"I think that would be hurting us," Trump said.
"We have jobs, we have a lot of things happening in this country. We have a country that's doing probably better economically than it's ever done before."Ironically this all comes a mere days after on Trump last Sunday said the Saudi king wouldn't last "two weeks" without American support. The statements also come just as a bipartisan group of Congressional leaders are demanding a federal probe into Khashoggi's disappearance and alleged murder that could lead to sanctions on the longtime close US ally...
“By March, more than one million leaked documents from governments and corporations in Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and the former Soviet Bloc will be available online in a bold new collective experiment in whistle-blowing. That is, of course, as long as you don’t accept any of the conspiracy theories brewing that Wikileaks.org could be a front for the CIA or some other intelligence agency.” TIME Jan. 2007 (emphasis added)Now remember and read closely… this article was written PRIOR to Wikileaks’ first big “leak”, which according to the article was to occur sometime in March of 2007.
“Instead of a couple of academic specialists, Wikileaks will provide a forum for the entire global community to examine any document relentlessly for credibility, plausibility, veracity and falsifiability,” its organizers write on the site’s FAQ page. “They will be able to interpret documents and explain their relevance to the public. If a document is leaked from the Chinese government, the entire Chinese dissident community can freely scrutinize and discuss it…” TIME Jan. 2007You have to remember, Wikileaks first started targeting China obviously and as we all know from history, typically dissident movements within targeted nations are often funded and run by covert CIA operations. Since Wikileaks started off with a host of Chinese dissidents, it would be logical to assume that at least some of them have links back to the agency. But it gets better.
