“US-backed Forces Claiming to “Liberate” Yemen Rape Detainees in Secret Prisons” by Randi Nord (Geopolitics Alert)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

=== =
The so-called “liberators” in Yemen are sexually and physically torturing detainees at secret prisons. Survivors recall disturbing stories laden with gruesome interrogation tactics for extracting false confessions. Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen attempts to portray themselves as the bearers of freedom and reason.

As an ally of the United States’ “counter-terrorism” operation in Yemen, the United Arab Emirates established 18 prisons throughout territory under their control. An ongoing investigation from the Associated Press has so far identified instances of deranged sexual torture at five of these facilities. The Emirati headquarters in Yemen houses one of such facilities where witnesses have seen American soldiers.

The United States provides the United Arab Emirates with billions in weapons, and military equipment through the Saudi-led coalition and counter-terror operations in Yemen. Washington also has ground troops in Yemen assisting and training Emirati forces.

“US-Saudis Launch Terror Attack on Wedding Killing and Wounding 22 in Yemen” by Randi Nord (Geopolitics Alert)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

(o
The US-backed Saudi-led coalition has launched yet another terror attack on yet another Yemeni wedding. The most recent prior similar attack took place in late April of this year. It’s common for the U.S.-Saudi coalition to target civilians gathering en mass at funerals, celebrations, refugee camps, and crowded weekend markets…

The most recent Yemeni wedding attack took place on Tuesday in Saada province. Saada province might be subjected to more airstrike attacks on homes, cars, and civilian infrastructure than any other province. Rescuers are still working on retrieving bodies from the rubble. The majority of the victims appear to be children — many are very young under five.

“Washington Moves Against Rafael Correa” by Paul Craig Roberts (Paul Craig Roberts)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

|=-
As President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa was a Godsend for the Ecuadorian people, for Latin American independence and for WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. By serving justice and truth instead of Washington, Correa earned Washington’s hatred and determination to destroy him.

Correa was succeeded as president by Lenin Moreno, who Correa mistakenly believed to be an ally, but who has every appearance of being a Washington asset. The first thing that Moreno did was to make a deal with Washington, block Correa from being able to again stand for the presidency and turn on Julian Assange. Moreno wants to revoke the asylum granted to Assange and has prevented Assange from continuing his journalistic activity from the Ecuadorian embassy in London. In other words, Moreno has conspired with Washington and the UK to effectively imprison Assange in the embassy.

Now Moreno has taken another step that highlights his character as a blackguard. Correa, realizing that he and his family were in danger, moved to Belgium. An Ecuadorian court has now ordered the Belgians to detain Correa and extradite him to Ecuador on a fabricated kidnapping charge.

“US Set on Regime Change in Venezuela” by Shannon Ebrahim (Venezuelanalysis.com)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

[[
Given the US failure to overthrow the Venezuelan leadership through rolling protests and people power, President Donald Trump has openly said that his administration doesn’t discard the military option to enact regime change. This is what Venezuela’s foreign minister Jorge Arreaza reminded South Africans on his five-day visit here this week.

According to Arreaza, the day before Trump announced the military option was on the table on August 8 last year, he had held a meeting with his then-secretary of state Rex Tillerson and national security adviser HR McMaster, asking them why the US doesn’t finish off Venezuelan president Nicolas Madura through a military operation. According to Arreaza, Tillerson and McMaster managed to convince Trump not to do so. Despite the realpolitik, Tillerson had embarked on a Latin American tour defending the Monroe Doctrine, calling for an oil embargo of Venezuela and hinting at a military coup.

“In a Trade War, Canada’s energy not on the table” by ? (The Council of Canadians)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

(=
As Trump launches a trade war, Canada is hamstrung by a little-known NAFTA clause that packs a huge climate punch. It’s the energy proportionality clause that gives the U.S. first access to most of Canada’s oil and natural gas.

In a new report to be released today in Ottawa by the Council of Canadians, Escaping Mandatory Energy Exports, University of Alberta professor Gordon Laxer explains that energy proportionality obligates Canada to make available for export to the United States, the same proportion of its energy as it has in the past three years. Currently that is 74% of the oil and 52% of the natural gas in Canada…

“Trump sees Canadian oil as American oil,” says Dr. Laxer. “When he approved the Keystone XL oil pipeline to bring mainly Alberta tar sands oil to U.S. Gulf coast refineries, Trump said it would reduce Americans’ dependence on foreign oil. Because of NAFTA’s proportionality rule, Trump happens to be right.”

“Water for Flint, Not for Nestlé” by Emma Lui (The Council of Canadians)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

O-
Flint is still dealing with the lead poisoning of residents’ drinking water. Residents of Detroit are once again experiencing water shutoffs. Ontario has the highest number of Drinking Water Advisories in First Nations out of all the provinces in Canada. All the while Nestlé is allowed to pump millions of litres of water from Ontario and Michigan every day to bottle and sell for profit.

I went to Detroit this past weekend to meet with the Water Is Life coalition to talk about these and other water justice issues around the Great Lakes. Nearly 20 organizations gathered over two days to develop strategies to prevent the privatization and commodification of water, ensure affordable access to drinking water and sanitation, uphold Indigenous rights to water, protect the Great Lakes and implement the UN-recognized human rights to water and sanitation…

In Ontario, Nestlé continues to pump up to 4.7 million litres (1.2 million gallons) of water every day on expired permits from its two wells in Wellington County, Ontario. Nestle has purchased a third well in Elora and could be given the green light to pump once Ontario’s moratorium on new and expanded bottled water permits ends in January 2019. The City of Guelph has raised concerns about the impacts of Nestle’s water takings on the municipality’s future drinking water.

Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford becoming Ontario’s new premier raises serious concerns about the protection of water from Nestlé and other bottled water companies.

“Doctor Punished for Giving Vaccine Exemptions to Children with High Risk of Vaccine Brain Damage” by Rachel Blevins (The Free Thought Project)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

+-
In an alarming decision that could be used to set the standard for doctors who choose not to follow the state’s strict vaccine schedules for infants and toddlers, the Medical Board of California has suspended a pediatrician who claims that he approved a 2-year-old’s vaccine exemption, after the child showed a severe adverse reaction.

Dr. Robert Sears has been the subject of controversy ever since the board threatened to revoke his medical license altogether when he was accused of “wrongfully writing” a doctor’s note for a 2-year-old boy that exempted him from required vaccinations, after the boy’s mother told him that previous immunizations made the boy’s body limp, and caused him to lose urinary functions.

Because he took the mother’s word and believed her testimony of her son’s condition, Dr. Sears is now under probation for the next 35 months, which means that every decision he makes as a pediatric doctor will be strictly scrutinized by other medical professionals, he must notify all hospital and medical facilities where he practices that he is on probation, and he is not allowed to supervise physician assistants or nurse practitioners.

“Australia Issues Rolling Fines to Parents Who Won’t Vaccinate Their Children” by Emma Fiala (Mint Press News)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

=====—
Australia’s “No Jab, No Pay” policy just got a little stronger, or at least more insistent. Under the previous policy, parents who did not keep their children up to date on vaccinations would miss out on a one-time, end-of-the-year tax benefit called Family Tax Benefit Part A, valued at AU$737. Under the updated policy, those same parents will instead lose AU$28 every two weeks while their child is not up to date…

Government vaccination campaigns are nothing new in Australia. Back in 1999, vaccination rates for children between the ages of 24 and 27 months hit the lowest level in 17 years. After launching an aggressive education campaign, that same rate rose from 73.6 percent in 1999 to 92.2 percent in 2015. But the Australian government asserted that still wasn’t enough and subsequently launched the No Jab, No Pay policy, spending AU$14 million on free vaccinations in 2017 alone.

Medical exemptions are available both for children at risk of serious harm from vaccines and for children who have natural immunity.

“Mainstream Media Admits FBI Groomed Terrorist for 4th of July Attack, Gave Him Supplies” by Rachel Blevins (Activist Post)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

|o
An innocent man is now facing terrorism charges after he was caught plotting a bombing at a Fourth of July celebration and then arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The only problem is that the plot was created by undercover FBI agents, who convinced the man to agree to a role in the plan, and then provided him with supplies…

While it is not clear what the comments from Pitts—who was reportedly using a Facebook account with a different name—stated exactly, it is clear that there was no indication he actually planned on carrying out a terrorist attack. In fact, a report from NBC News admitted that “there’s no indication that Pitts could have carried off any attack on his own.”

FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen Anthony justified the contact by insisting that instead of waiting to see if Pitts ever joined al-Qaeda and traveled overseas for training, agents were completely justified in reaching out to Pitt and trying to convince him to carry out an attack now.

“Sicko Cop Gets NO JAIL After Admitting to Possession, Distribution of Horrific Images of Child Abuse” by Matt Agorist (The Free Thought Project)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

[–
For those who doubt the existence of blue privilege and the ability of cops to escape accountability for unspeakable crimes, the following case should serve as proof it is real. When an officer of the law is caught exploiting and abusing society’s most vulnerable — children — and they can escape jail time, this is definitive proof of blue privilege.

Millville police officer Samuel F. Brozina was caught with a trove of child porn on his computer and his cell phone. According to prosecutors, the horrifying images depicted the sexual abuse of small children. For possessing these images and videos, an average citizen would and should go to jail — but not a cop.

In Brozina’s case, his blue status proved that he is above the law and this child predator will not spend a single day in jail. For multiple charges of possessing child porn, Brozina was sentenced to a mere three years of probation.

Indeed. Gatekeepers are those with the ‘right’ political views. They can be appointed or self-appointed. They can be anyone. They can be dumb or smart, professionals or non professionals. Appointed gatekeepers are most certainly those who understand, enough, their gatekeeping role. What are the ‘right’ political views? Basically, they involve protecting the powerful in return for their protection. See my blog post titled “Gatekeepers.” Police, like judges, are important gatekeepers who the 1% depends on very much.

“Network of Pedophile Cops Raped Children for Years Because Dept ‘Mistakenly’ Covered It Up” by Jack Burns (The Free Thought Project)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

=-=–

Inside information into the years-long sex saga involving two former Louisville Metropolitan Police Department (LMPD) officers is now being revealed. The city commissioned former U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey to investigate the LMPD Explorers program for children to determine if sexual misconduct, abuse, and even rape were widespread with police officers involved in the program.

Two former LMPD officers have been charged with serious crimes, as The Free Thought Project reported, and the city, with good reason, wanted to know more about how police handled the complaints from parents and reports children were being groomed, propositioned, and even raped…

The accusations were followed by lawsuits with one lawyer reportedly representing five victims abused by officers inside the Explorers program. Not only did parents accuse the police officers’ superiors of doing nothing about their criminal complaints, the Police Officers’ union also began to stonewall, filing a lawsuit in an attempt to prevent investigators from interviewing more cops.

From The Los Angeles Times:
Rodolfo Rodriguez was attacked by several people after reportedly bumping into a little girl on his daily walk in South Los Angeles.

“Arrest made in brutal beating of 91-year-old man” by Brittny Mejia (Los Angeles Times)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

(+
Rodolfo Rodriguez had gone out for a walk in Willowbrook about 7 p.m. on July 4 when he was assaulted, according to a GoFundMe campaign set up by his family. Rodriguez has a broken cheekbone and bruises on his face.

His family said a woman confronted Rodriguez after he reportedly bumped into a little girl who was with her. Rodriguez was then struck from behind, and “as he fell on the ground, he blacked out,” Sheriff’s Det. Matt Luna said.

Misbel Borjas, who lives near Rodriguez, was passing by in a car when she saw Rodriguez walking and trying to pass a woman and a girl. Then, Borjas said, she saw the woman push Rodriguez and start to hit him with a block of cement.

“She was yelling at him, ‘Go back to your country,’ or ‘Go back to Mexico,’” Borjas recalled. “It was racist.”

Rodriguez’s daughter, Aurelia Rodriguez, said her father recalls the woman screaming at him, but he didn’t understand what she was saying because he doesn’t speak or understand English.

Moshe Zar speaks genocide at Education Conference to wild applause. From David Sheen Facebook page.

“Speaker at Israeli gov’t conference promotes genocide against Arabs and non-Jews” by Jonathan Ofir (Mondoweiss)

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

((
A week ago, the Israeli Ministry of Education held a conference in Jerusalem for the state’s religious education sector (Ynet reports, Hebrew, English here). Education Minister Naftali Bennett was also present. The theme was “speaking about the values of the Jewish family in 2018, about education to healthy sexuality, modesty, feminism, values and Zionism.”

On the stage was an aging terrorist, Moshe Zar, a former founding member of the Jewish-terrorist movement “Jewish Underground” (in 1980’s), who said the following:

“I am known for saying ‘Build a house, it’s like you wiped out a hundred Arabs. Build a settlement, it’s like you wiped out tens of thousands of goyim [‘non-Jews’]’. That’s the truth”.

His words were applauded by a considerable number of the public, including the settler standing beside him, Yael Shevach, the widow of rabbi Raziel Shevach, who was murdered in January on a road in the occupied West Bank outside the settlement he lived in…

The immediate context within the conference was about settlement in “Judea, Samaria and Gaza”. After a video was screened, Zar told about an attack that had occurred in a settlement and said that construction of the settlements is “our sweet revenge”.
