Russia Must Die - The Deep State has Spoken

The Bipartisan Deep State Uses
Russia to Destroy Trump

  • Never did I think I would publish an article from Pravda, but here we are. I am not frightened of the opinions of others and this article makes a lot of good points.
  • The Deep State, CIA, NSA, FBI, Military-Industrial Complex and open borders Wall Street Oligarchs control what passes for "news". But our "news" is little more than a 24-7 anti-Trump, anti-Russia, pro-war propaganda machine.

(Pravada)  -  It is hard to overstate the no-holds-barred media assassination of all things Russian.  It is beyond the Cold War days, when the same ideological crowd now vilifying Russia were considered "soft on Communism".  You hear it all over, including the oft repeated phrase that, "Russia is our biggest enemy." Yes, you heard right: Our. Biggest. Enemy.  

Putin is, according to the US mainstream media, the equivalent of the antichrist, the beast, or the head of the oligarchic mafia that is out to rule, and by implication ruin, the world.

And Donald Trump is to be eviscerated and hung on the cross of Russia.  This canard is a bone the media will not let go of - this "guilt by association". 

Any contact with Russia is treated by our media malefactors like contact with smallpox, or the ebola virus.  Legal, or verbal, or ANY association is transformed by media-black-magic into a grave offense against everything American.
Putin a Godless Communist?
Those days are long gone, this is more Military-Industrial Complex propaganda. Putin has protected the Orthodox Church and helped it grow. Sure Russia in authoritarian but so what. They have been authoritarian for 1,000 years.

Even a conversation between President Trump and President Putin at an international dinner, -- conducted in "broad daylight" in the same banquet room with dozens of heads of state and their spouses in attendance, -- was treated as a sinister conspiracy against the world by MSNBC and CNN.

So, let's get this straight.  Russia is our mortal enemy because they are pinko commies?  Nah, that's not it. They left communism and became a democracy with a capitalist economy decades ago.  Did we rejoice and welcome them into the fold?  Like how awesome is that?  No, we did not.

So, Russia is anathama and a detestation because they want to dominate Europe and take over the world?  Well, let's see. I think that would be ... us -- the United States of America with over seven hundred military bases in over one hundred countries.  Russia?  Not so much.  Less than ten military bases outside of Russia.  
So, hmmmm, we hate them and we demonize them because they are godless?  Nah, actually that would be us.  They are bringing back traditional values and Putin is a professed Christian, going to confession to an Orthodox Russian priest once a week according to more than one source. In the months of May, June, and July millions of Russians stood in lines sometimes a mile long to venerate the relics of 4th century Bishop St. Nicholas on display in a glass case in Moscow in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, rebuilt under President Putin.
And Russia recently outlawed the lascivious website Pornhub, a huge porn aggregate which is alive and well in the USA. Godlessness? Can't be that.
Russia has actually banned GMOs.  They want to be friends with the USA.  We hate them because ... because ... it's fun to hate Russians?  It's fun to have a big, bad enemy?? 
And, here's the kicker: our Overlords can justify spending insane amounts of money on more nuclear bombs and bigger and better weapons -- if the Media-Military-Industrial Complex crowd can fabricate a scary enough enemy for us to hate, fear - and potentially drop the bombs on (or at least on their allies).

Teddy was right.
But now corporate control of news is even worse.

Kaboom! Russian Drone Blows Up Ukrainian Ammo Dump

Terrorism is Just Getting Started

(Popular Mechanics)  -  A drone carrying a grenade infiltrated an ammunition dump in the Ukraine, setting off an explosion that caused an astounding billion dollars worth of damage. The incident points to the growing use of drones in wartime, particularly off the shelf civilian products harnessed to conduct sabotage and other attacks.

Ukraine's domestic intelligence service, the SBU, believes that a drone carrying a Russian thermite hand grenade caused a series of titanic explosions at Balakliya, a military base in Eastern Ukraine. Amateur video of the incident posted on YouTube shows a raging fire spewing out of control artillery rockets, and an explosion and shockwave that sent civilians nearby reeling.

One person was killed in the attack and five were injured.

The drone is believed to have carried a ZMG-1 thermite grenadeThermite, a combination of iron oxide (rust) and aluminum powder. The stuff burns extremely hot and easily could have gotten through wooden crates to detonate the munitions inside. The ammo dump is just 60 miles from the Russian/Ukrainian border, where fighting recently took place.

According to PM contributor David Hambling writing at Scout Warrior, it's not the first time military bases in Ukraine have been hit by drones. A similar attempt to blow up the Balakliya base took place in December 2015, when drones dropped 14 grenades. The fires were extinguished by Ukrainian servicemen, and one grenade, a ZMG-1, was recovered.

In October 2015, an attack on an ammunition depot at Svatovo destroyed 3,000 tons of explosives and damaged 1,700 nearby homes. Two other attacks on ammo dumps took place in February, and another facility was attacked in March.

Guerrilla groups, terrorists, and perhaps even governments worldwide have rapidly weaponized consumer drones, effectively turning hobbyist devices into lethal weapons capable of killing. In 2016, two French Special Forces soldiers were injured and two Kurdish fighters were killed by an exploding ISIS drone. ISIS has conducted numerous drone attacks during the Mosul campaign and terrorism experts fear weaponized drones could spread outside conflict zones.

New Registration Data for the United States

(Ballot Access News)  -  The new national registration totals for the United States, in the 32 jurisdictions in which the voter registration form asks the applicant to choose a party, are:
  • Democratic 44,706,349 (40.30%)
  • Republican 32,807,417 (29.57%)
  • independent & misc. 30,818,334 (27.78%)
  • Libertarian 511,277 (.46%)
  • Green 258,683 (.23%)
  • Constitution 97,893 (.09%)
  • Working Families 52,748 (.05%)
  • Reform 5,204 (.00+%)
  • other parties 1,684,317 (1.52%)

The number of registered voters in the 32 jurisdictions with partisan registration is 110,942,222. That is lower than the national registration in November 2016, which was 112,518,979. It is normal for the number of registered voters to decline in the months after an election, due to list purges.
In November 2016, the percentages were: Democratic 40.60%; Republican 29.37%; Libertarian .44%; Green .23%; Constitution .08%; Working Families .05%; Reform .00+%; other parties 1.50%; independent and miscellaneous 27.72%.
In the few states that have separate numbers for active and inactive voters, this compilation uses only the active voters.
All of the data is as of mid-2017, except the California data is from February 2017; the Pennsylvania data is from April 2017; the Connecticut data is from late 2016; the Florida minor party totals are from November 2016; and the Massachusetts data for the unqualified parties is from November 2016.

Pot for Dogs in California?

Just Drug Everyone on 
Two or Four Feet

(Sacramento Bee)  -  Legalization of weed in California is leading to an increase in veterinarians seeking expertise about whether marijuana can safely treat pet conditions and illnesses. Veterinary practice regulators say to steer clear, but some in the industry want state lawmakers to step in.

The state’s Veterinary Medical Board, a regulatory agency overseeing state animal hospitals and veterinary practices, has received “a number of questions about the use of marijuana for pets,” according to a 2016 email from a state veterinary board enforcement officer. That prompted agency officials to issue a directive earlier this year to veterinarians across the state that they should not offer medical advice or prescribe marijuana products to animals. Doctors risk losing their licenses if they weigh in on the use of marijuana when treating pets, state officials say.

“You are in a bit of a pickle in terms of how you advise your clients,” Annemarie Del Mugnaio, the agency’s executive officer, told the board Wednesday. “Be very cautious...you’re not in a position to treat or recommend alternative treatments. If it places their animal in harm, there’s a criminal element to that...I can imagine at some point, if we see animals coming in in extreme despair, there may be charges filed.”

Marijuana products for pets are already available at dispensaries and over-the-counter in pet stores. And weed will be legally available for commercial purchase for anyone 21 years or older, come Jan. 1, 2018. Richter said he and other industry advocates are lobbying state lawmakers to consider legislation next year allowing veterinarians to prescribe medical marijuana to pets such as dogs and cats.
“We hope to get some legislation passed next year that will remedy this so veterinarians will have legal protections,” Richter said. “We’ve got a medicine that No. 1, has been proven to be very effective in people and also very effective in animals, and No. 2, is readily available to just about anybody in California. So the concept that the Veterinary Medical Board should be excluded from that conversation and barred from giving pet owners advice on how to do this safely and effectively makes no sense.”

Modern Nazis Wear Lab Coats

Science fiction meets Science.  Star Trek's Noonien Singh Khan
is one of a group of 
genetically engineered superhumans.

Creating the Master Race
  • The Nazis used good old fashioned sex to create a Master Race. But sex takes too long. Enter the modern Nazis in lab coats.
  • Look for a government funded Master Race to be created using the excuse of preventing "disease".  But there is a long laundry list of "undesirable traits" the Master Race scientists will be ordered to remove from the gene pool.

(Technology Review)  -  The first known attempt at creating genetically modified human embryos in the United States has been carried out by a team of researchers in Portland, Oregon, Technology Review has learned.

The effort, led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov of Oregon Health and Science University, involved changing the DNA of a large number of one-cell embryos with the gene-editing technique CRISPR, according to people familiar with the scientific results.

Until now, American scientists have watched with a combination of awe, envy, and some alarm as scientists elsewhere were first to explore the controversial practice. To date, three previous reports of editing human embryos were all published by scientists in China.

If we are going to do this then I want my
genetically engineered flying monkey!

Now Mitalipov is believed to have broken new ground both in the number of embryos experimented upon and by demonstrating that it is possible to safely and efficiently correct defective genes that cause inherited diseases.

Although none of the embryos were allowed to develop for more than a few days—and there was never any intention of implanting them into a womb—the experiments are a milestone on what may prove to be an inevitable journey toward the birth of the first genetically modified humans.

In altering the DNA code of human embryos, the objective of scientists is to show that they can eradicate or correct genes that cause inherited disease, like the blood condition beta-thalassemia. The process is termed “germline engineering” because any genetically modified child would then pass the changes on to subsequent generations via their own germ cells—the egg and sperm.

Some critics say germline experiments could open the floodgates to a brave new world of “designer babies” engineered with genetic enhancements—a prospect bitterly opposed by a range of religious organizations, civil society groups, and biotech companies.

The U.S. intelligence community last year called CRISPR a potential "weapon of mass destruction.”

1 million illegal alien drivers in California

Open Borders America

  • The policies of the open borders Republicans and Democrats are abolishing the United States.
  • The Dems want millions of new voters dependent on government while the GOP wants millions of new legal and illegal workers to drive down the wages of American citizens of all ethnic backgrounds.

(Sacramento Bee)  -  Nearly a million undocumented drivers could be licensed in California by the end of the year.
Through June 2017, the Department of Motor Vehicles has issued approximately 905,000 driver’s licenses under Assembly Bill 60, the law requiring applicants to prove only their identity and California residency, rather than their legal presence in the state.
The new flag of Alta California

Passed in 2013, after more than 15 years of lobbying by advocates, AB 60 was intended to bolster public safety and reduce penalties for undocumented immigrants who drive. When it finally took effect at the beginning of 2015, making California the 10th state to offer driver’s licenses to immigrants living in the country illegally, the response was so immense that it doubled initial expectations.
That pace has since slowed considerably. The DMV issued about 11,000 AB 60 licenses last month, the lowest number since the program launched. There have been approximately 83,000 issued in the first half of 2017, only slightly more than March 2015, when the monthly total peaked with 76,000.

Illegal aliens overwhelm courts with asylum lawsuits

Using our own courts against us

(Washington Free Beacon)  -  Migrants are overwhelming the German court system as hundreds of thousands have appealed rulings denying them refugee status.
Many migrants are suing after being granted "subsidiary protection" status by the German authorities, seeking to become full refugeees, the Washington Post reports. Those with subsidiary protection status can stay in Germany for up to three years, but do not have the right to reunify with family.
Two-thirds of cases in Berlin's administrative court are from asylum seekers, as 250,000 appeals are pending across the country Germany.

"This will paralyze us for years," a judge told Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel concerning the build up of lawsuits.
In 2015, German Chancellor Angela Merkel took an especially liberal line in welcoming refugees. But when the country was shaken by terror attacks, including one on a Christmas market by a Tunisian asylum-seeker, concerns about the German open-door policy led to tighter regulations.
German courts, however, have disagreed with German immigration officials' judgements the vast majority of the time, finding in favor of 90 percent of Syrians who sue for asylum. Some hail this proportion as a human rights victory.
"The courts are cleaning up the mess," University of Hamburg law professor Nora Markard said. "The success rate tells us how important judicial review is — and how important it is for people to have legal representation."

GOP-Dems attack Russia for opposing ISIS & Islamists

The GOP - Dem Republicrat Alliance

  • The GOP & Dems lock arms to punish Russia for daring to support Syria against CIA armed Islamist terrorists (see article below).
  • The corrupt bipartisan Oligarch Elites want an endless Cold War with Russia to distract the Sheeple voters from open borders and the exportation of middle class jobs.

(RT News)  -  The House of Representatives has voted overwhelmingly to pass new sanctions against Russia, and require congressional approval before US President Donald Trump can ease or remove existing ones. The bill also includes sanctions against Iran and North Korea
Lawmakers voted 419-3 to approve legislation is seeking to punish Russia over a host of issues, including its alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election, its support for the Syrian government and alleged support for the rebels in Ukraine, as well as Crimea’s accession to Russia.
If signed into law, the measure will effectively cement the existing sanctions against Russia by requiring the administration to get permission from Congress before lifting or easing the economic penalties against Moscow.

“It empowers Congress to review and disapprove of any sanctions relief,” said Rep. Ed Royce (R-California) on the House floor, ahead of the vote.
The sanctions target a wide array of entities and individuals – including Russia’s energy sector, banks and weapons manufacturers, as well as those whom the US has accused of interfering in the US presidential election through hacking and otherwise.

Fresh sanctions would prove detrimental not just to the US and Russia, but other countries too, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.
“If Trump signs the sanctions bill, he will not calm down his enemies – they desire his impeachment. But he will inflict double damage – to relations with Russia and the European Union at the same time,” Russian senator Aleksey Pushkov said.

Take a guess who has been providing weapons to the Islamists
(New York Times)  -  With help from the C.I.A., Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders. 

The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year, the data shows. It has grown to include more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military-style cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara, and, to a lesser degree, at other Turkish and Jordanian airports.
From offices at secret locations, American intelligence officers have helped the Arab governments shop for weapons, including a large procurement from Croatia, and have vetted rebel commanders and groups to determine who should receive the weapons as they arrive, according to American officials speaking on the condition of anonymity. 

The C.I.A. declined to comment on the shipments or its role in them. 

Pet translator will help dogs talk

(Express)  -  For those who ever wondered what would happen if dogs could talk, they may soon find out as ‘pet translators’ could be available in an little as a decade.

An Amazon-commissioned ‘Shop the Future’ report claims the technology could hit the shops within 10 years and experts in the US are beginning to work on the machine to allow pooches to finally be able to answer the question ‘who’s a good boy?’. 
The study, co-authored by futurologist William Higham of Next Big Thing, states the technology is a realistic prospect as the demand for pet-friendly products continues to grow.
Mr Higham said: “Innovative products that succeed are based around a genuine and major consumer needs. 
“The amount of money now spent on pets – they are becoming fur babies to so many people – means there is huge consumer demand for this. Somebody is going to put this together.”
The report, which is in conjunction with the launch of Amazon's Shop The Future store, builds on a study from the Northern Arizona University, which used artificial intelligence to decipher the calls of prairie dogs and found that they have “a sophisticated communication system that has all the aspects of language”.
Author Con Slobodchikoff told the Guardian: “They have words for different species of predator and can describe the colour of clothes of a human, or the coat of coyotes or dogs.”
He agreed that pet translators are not far off.
Mr Slobodchikoff added: “So many people would dearly love to talk to their dog or cat – or at least find out what they are trying to communicate. 
“A lot of people talk to their dogs and share their innermost secrets.
With cats, I’m not sure what they’d have to say. A lot of times it might just be ‘you idiot, just feed me and leave me alone.’”

Communists crack down on Tweeters

Communist Internet Crackdown

  • The Democrats and GOP keep screaming "Russia, Russia" while China openly attacks Internet freedom.

(Radio Free Asia)  -  Chinese authorities in the northern city of Xi’an have ordered internet service providers to submit files to police on anyone with more than 30,000 social media followers, RFA has learned.

Service providers have until Aug. 15 to comply with the new rules, according to a directive issued by the Xi’an municipal branch of China’s powerful Cyberspace Agency.

“Any organization or individual engaged in the running of websites, forums or chat services must keep a file on any account holder with more than 30,000 followers, including their place of registration, the place where they live,” the directive, a copy of which was obtained by RFA, said.

Files must also be prepared on individuals residing temporarily within Xi’an city limits, it said. The files must then be made available to the authorities.

“Individuals or work units failing to do this will be subjected to warnings, ‘chats’ [with police], or administrative punishments,” the directive warned.

Internet service providers could also face being shut down by the authorities temporarily or permanently, if they do not comply, it said.

It said service providers that allow “fake news” to circulate, including “additional reporting,” or news that is lacking in factual truth, balance or that doesn’t comply with regulations, will be dealt with according to law.

Xi’an-based journalist and political commentator Ma Xiaoming said the ruling Chinese Communist Party wants to ensure that only it has a platform.

“It seems that the last vestiges of freedom of speech are now being tightly controlled,” Ma said. “This is a form of suppression of free speech.”

Foreign content

The move comes after China’s media regulator last week issued takedown notices last week to two popular multimedia websites targeting young people, AcFun and bilibili.

Authorities removed a large array of overseas TV shows and video content amid an ongoing crackdown on foreign content, the State Administration for Print, Publications, Radio, Film and Television, Print and Publications (SAPPRFT) said in a statement on its official website.

“These were sites for young people, which started out with mostly cartoons and anime, and later expanded to all kinds of content,” a journalist who asked to remain anonymous told RFA.

“A lot of the video has now been taken down, or, if it is still on the site, you can’t watch it,” she said. “It was phenomenally popular, and then the on-screen comment function became hugely popular across the country.”

“These two websites were the first to offer the on-screen, real-time comment function.”
