‘The overseas hub for America’s “war on terror” is the massive Ramstein Air Base in southwest Germany. Nearly ignored by US media, Ramstein serves crucial functions for drone warfare and much more. It’s the most important Air Force base abroad, operating as a kind of grand central station for airborne war—whether relaying video images of drone targets in Afghanistan to remote pilots with trigger fingers in Nevada, or airlifting special-ops units on missions to Africa, or transporting munitions for airstrikes in Syria and Iraq. Soaking up billions of taxpayer dollars, Ramstein has scarcely lacked for anything from the home country, other than scrutiny.’

THE NEWS about the Dallas shooting left me much troubled.

A peaceful march to protest perceived police violence against blacks organized by a black Baptist pastor turned into a nightmare.

Five police ended up being killed by a black sniper who was a veteran of America’s Afghanistan war.

What caught my eye was that the sniper Micah X Johnson told the cops when cornered in the El Centro College Garage that he was “upset” with Black Lives Matter.

Why was he upset? Dallas PD doesn’t have an answer.

This was never explained by the Jew-owned press and no one thought of pursuing this question: What was Johnson’s gripe against Black Lives Matter?

| 26 June 2016 | Weapons shipped into Jordan for Syrian rebels [aka I-CIA-SIS] by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia were stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market, the New York Times reported, citing American and Jordanian officials. Some of the stolen weapons were used in a shooting in November that killed two Americans and three others at a police training facility in Amman, according to a joint investigation by the New York Times and Al Jazeera. A Jordanian officer shot dead two U.S. government security contractors, a South African trainer and two Jordanians at a U.S.-funded police training facility near Amman before being killed in a shootout, Jordanian authorities had said in November.

‘On Oct. 20, 2011, Muammar Qaddafi was grotesquely murdered on camera. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had said, “I want him dead,” and after his death she made her famously imperial boast, “We came, we saw, he died,” refiguring Julius Caesar’s message to the Roman Senate after one of his conquests in the same Mediterranean region.

WikileaksLess than a month later, in a Nov. 16, 2011, “Tripoli Situation Report” in Hillary Clinton’s e-mail archive, “country managers of the three U.S. firms comprising the Waha Group (Marathon, Conoco Phillips and Amerada Hess) said meetings with its Libyan joint venture partner and the National Oil Company [NOC] this week were ‘extremely positive’ and that they were encouraged by an apparent sea change in the NOC’s attitude toward its U.S. partners.”

One would have had to be extraordinarily naive to believe that the U.S. and NATO attacked Libya to “stop genocide and mass atrocities,” as Secretary of State Clinton, NSC advisor Samantha Power and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice claimed at the time.’

| 15 June 2016 | The war in on Afghanistan — America’s longest conflict — will grind on for at least another four years as NATO allies are prepared to commit $5 billion through 2020 to train, equip and pay Afghan security forces, according to a senior NATO diplomat. Last week, President Obama granted U.S. troops in Afghanistan expanded authority to attack Taliban insurgents. The new rules allow U.S. forces to advise regular Afghan combat units and to call in airstrikes…The new expanded authorities will give U.S. commanders in Afghanistan more flexibility, by allowing them to identify and get pre-approval for air targets in advance, instead of just responding to emergencies, Gen. Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff, told reporters in Washington.

The files went up in figurative smoke, like the target of this A-10 on a training run in Nevada. The files went up in figurative smoke, like the target of this A-10 on a training run in Nevada. Senior Airman Brett Clashman / U.S. Air Force file photo

The U.S. Air Force has lost records concerning 100,000 investigations into everything from workplace disputes to fraud.

A database that hosts files from the Air Force’s inspector general and legislative liaison divisions became corrupted last month, destroying data created between 2004 and now, service officials said. Neither the Air Force nor Lockheed Martin, the defense firm that runs the database, could say why it became corrupted or whether they’ll be able to recover the information.

Lockheed tried to recover the information for two weeks before notifying the Air Force, according to a service statement.

The Air Force has begun asking for assistance from cybersecurity professionals at the Pentagon as well as from private contractors.

“We’ve kind of exhausted everything we can to recover within [the Air Force] and now we’re going to outside experts to see if they can help,” said Ann Stefanek, an Air Force spokeswoman at the Pentagon.

For now, Air Force officials don’t believe the crash was caused intentionally.

Virtually no one in the Zionist media gives a damn about thousands upon thousands of civilian deaths in Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, and Libya; no one mourns for them; virtually no one is asking for their perpetrators to be trialed and punished accordingly.

"We have been victims of drone strikes in the Middle East. Who is fighting for us?"

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

The Orlando shooting incident has been another tragic chapter in the history of ideological conflicts and tensions in America and indeed much of the world. If you were trained in logic and have little patience with implicit or explicit contradictions, impressively incoherent statements, and just plain dumb arguments, then you know that much of what’s passing for clear thinking these days are just plain claptrap.[1] And if you don’t have a good sense of humor, then nonsense is going to drive you completely crazy.

First of all, we all should sympathize for the people who have lost love ones in the tragic incident. For us, all lives matter; every single human being on this planet is precious. But for ideologues, some lives, not all, matter. Here we are going to assume that the media is being fair and objective in reporting the incident in Orlando. 50 people or more lost their lives. The entire world, within a few hours, had already received the message and sent their condolences.

But the incident inexorably shows that politicians and news media outlets have deliberately excluded practical reason from their lexicon. How? Well, for the past three years or so, civilian deaths in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria have been astounding. If you work with numbers or statistical data all the time, then you will feel an urge to ask a puzzling question, “How is it that people aren’t mourning for the lives of those people who are being liquidated and humiliated by the oligarchs all over the Middle East?”

‘New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order on Sunday that will penalize people and businesses who support the non-violent boycott of Israel.

In a speech to The Harvard Club, Cuomo said New York would “lead by example.”

“We are also a place of action,” he continued. “We want to take immediate action because we want Israel to know that we’re on their side. If you boycott against Israel, New York will boycott you.”’

“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here. I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.” ~Muhammad Ali

The American taxpayers have been fleeced for almost seventy years by a so-called «intelligence» agency that has systematically violated the US Constitution, broken practically every federal law on the books, and penetrated virtually every facet of American life. The Central Intelligence Agency’s creation was bemoaned by its creator, President Harry S Truman, who, in a fit of personal angst following the 1963 assassination of President John F Kennedy, wrote in a newspaper column,

“I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations… I, therefore, would like to see the CIA be restored to its original assignment… and that its operational duties be terminated or properly used elsewhere”.

During a presidential election year, two of the three remaining major candidates – Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – have given no indication that they will heed the words of President Truman. For example, Trump has indicated he will give the CIA authority to torture that even the CIA considers illegal.

As for Mrs Clinton, her zeal in supporting the violent overthrow and assassination of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 only gives added impetus to the out-of-control players inside the CIA to commit similar actions in a Clinton administration. Only Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders appears to channel the beliefs of Truman when it comes to reining in the CIA.
