White House: Trump believes he has power to fire Mueller

White House: Trump believes he has power to fire Mueller | 10 April 2018 | President Trump believes he has the power to fire Robert Mueller as special counsel leading the Russia probe, the White House said Tuesday. "He certainly believes that he has the power to do so," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, adding that Trump is not acting now to fire him. Sanders said Trump believes Mueller has "gone too far" after FBI agents executed a raid on the office of Trump's personal attorney in part based on a referral from the special counsel's office. "We've been advised that the president certainly has the power to make that decision," the spokeswoman said. Sanders's statement marks a shift in tone for the White House, which has said repeatedly for months that Trump has not discussed firing Mueller.

Zuckerberg confirms Facebook is working with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation

Zuckerberg confirms Facebook is working with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation | 10 April 2018 | Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed Tuesday that his company is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller in its investigation into [alleged] Russian meddling in the 2016 election. When asked by Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy while he testified on Capitol Hill whether Facebook had been served subpoenas for the special counsel, Zuckerberg responded "yes," but later clarified: "I am actually not aware of a subpoena. I'm aware that there may be, but we are working with them." When asked if his employees had been interviewed, he also responded yes, but added, "I have not."

Pentagon strips Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria troop numbers from web

Pentagon strips Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria troop numbers from web | 09 April 2018 | After months of review, the Pentagon has released a quarterly report of the number of troops serving overseas -- minus any data it previously reported about the number of service members deployed in combat. The Defense Manpower Data Center for years has reported quarterly the number of active duty, National Guard and Reserve forces assigned to each state and stationed at each country overseas. The Pentagon typically reports each quarter's data three months after the quarter ends. The December report, however, just had blank spaces where Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan figures used to be.

White Helmets 'Treat' Alleged Chemical Attack Victims Without Protective Gear

White Helmets 'Treat' Alleged Chemical Attack Victims Without Protective Gear | 09 April 2018 | The White Helmets, which claim to be an impartial NGO [but in actuality is a Deep State-backed terrorist group], saving civilians in war-torn Syria, have repeatedly been busted using false videos of their daily rescue operations. The Syrian Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets, has published several clips and pictures, showing the alleged aftermath of the chemical attack in the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta. The volunteers have reported a widespread suffocation in the area, which led to 42 deaths; the footage, posted on Twitter, shows the alleged victims, including babies in diapers, breathing through oxygen masks. However, the rescuers appeared to be so focused on accusing President Bashar al-Assad of dropping a chemical bomb on Douma that they forgot to put on gas masks or protective suits themselves.

Tucker Carlson slams US foreign policy in no-holds-barred monologue on Syria

Tucker Carlson slams US foreign policy in no-holds-barred monologue on Syria | 10 April 2018 | As US leaders and mainstream media push for the nation to go to war in Syria, Fox News host Tucker Carlson has slammed so-called "geniuses" who claim to know the truth behind the alleged chemical attack. Speaking on his television show on Monday, Carlson spoke of the alleged attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma. However, he noted that while "genius" politicians, media, intelligence services, and think tanks seem to blame Syrian President Bashar Assad for the attack, they don't actually know what happened on the ground. "All the geniuses tell us that Assad killed those children, but do they really know that? Of course they don't really know that. They're making it up. They have no real idea what happened," Carlson said. "Actually both sides in the Syrian civil war possess chemical weapons," he said, noting that it wouldn't have benefited Assad to use chlorine gas, since his forces have been winning the war in Syria. He also discussed last year's sarin gas attack which the majority of US leaders also blamed on Assad. "But of course they were lying," he said, noting that US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis admitted two months ago that there is still no proof that Assad used sarin last year. Carlson called the story "propaganda."

Confirmed: US retrains ISIS and ISIS-like jihadists in east Syria and re-brands them 'democratic forces'

Confirmed: US retrains ISIS and ISIS-like jihadists in east Syria and re-brands them 'democratic forces' | 13 Feb 2018 | Clear-cut evidence has emerged that the United States is retraining jihadist militants -- most of them surrendered ISIS members as well as fighters of other militant groups with an ideology similar to that of ISIS -- in east Syria and re-branding them as 'democratic forces.' After many, many months of complaints by Russian military and diplomatic authorities that US advisor forces in Syria's east were retraining ISIS and ISIS-like militants, a video released by the Deir Ezzor-based opposition media outlet Euphrates Post has confirmed it. The video is the centerpiece in a puzzle of otherwise vague information that has been leaked about US intelligence activities in east Syria over the last year.

Assad had no reason to launch chemical attack, unlike those who want US involvement - Ron Paul

Assad had no reason to launch chemical attack, unlike those who want US involvement - Ron Paul | 10 April 2018 | Washington and the US media seem to have no doubts about the Syrian government's complicity in the Douma incident despite the fact that those who want America to stay in Syria have far more solid motives, Ron Paul told RT. The assertion by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Washington is "confident" that Syrian President Bashar Assad is culpable for the alleged chemical attack on the Damascus suburb of Douma does not stand up to scrutiny, Ron Paul, former congressman and founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, told RT. "I don't know what they are confident about. They are confident in telling lies and hope people will believe it," he said.

Harvard to interrogate professors accused of 'microaggressions'

Harvard to interrogate professors accused of 'microaggressions' | 09 April 2018 | Harvard University will soon investigate professors accused of "microaggressions" after students reported being subjected to in-class "verbal or nonverbal slights/insults." Seven classes at the Harvard University School of Public Health have been "flagged for special attention and review" after each class drew three or more student reports of microaggressions, The Harvard Crimson reported Thursday. Eighty-five students responded "yes" to a question on whether they had experienced in-class microaggressions, according to data that school dean Nancy Turnbull provided exclusively to Crimson reporter Luke Vrotsos.

If CIA relocates Skripals in the US 'we may not see them again' - Russia's UN envoy

If CIA relocates Skripals in the US 'we may not see them again' - Russia's UN envoy | 10 April 2018 | Media reports that the US is ready to shelter the Skripals under new identities point to the CIA's role in the poisoning saga and mean they may now vanish for good, without providing key evidence, the Russian envoy to the UN said. Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's UN envoy, was commenting on the report by The Sunday Times that intelligence officials at MI6 have been discussing, with their American colleagues at the CIA, a potential resettlement of former Russian-UK double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who are now recovering from a poison attack that British authorities have blamed on Russia. The relocation scheme would include, according to a senior Whitehall source cited by The Times, both father and daughter being provided with new identities.

Trump blasts FBI raids on his lawyer as 'a disgraceful situation'

Trump blasts FBI raids on his lawyer as 'a disgraceful situation' | 09 April 2018 | President Donald Trump reacted angrily Monday after the FBI seized records from his longtime personal attorney, calling the law enforcement actions "disgraceful" and part of "an attack on our country." An attorney for Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said earlier Monday that federal investigators had executed a series of search warrants and seized records. Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, said the actions were taken following a "referral" from special counsel Robert Mueller. "I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, a good man," Trump told reporters at the White House. "It's a disgraceful situation. ...I've been saying it for a long time. I have this witch hunt constantly going on." "It's an attack on our country," Trump said.

Gov. Rick Scott announces Senate run in Orlando

Gov. Rick Scott announces Senate run in Orlando | 09 April 2018 | Gov. Rick Scott announced his long-expected run for the U.S. Senate on Monday in an Orlando rally, setting the stage for a contentious and expensive battle against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. He kicked off his campaign by taking direct aim at Nelson, who was first elected to Senate in 2000, by calling for term limits for members of Congress. The race between the two-term governor and three-term senator promises to be a test of the popularity of President Donald Trump.

Arizona Supreme Court: No in-state tuition for DACA college students

Arizona Supreme Court: No in-state tuition for DACA college students | 09 April 2018 | Young immigrants with DACA status who want to attend college in their home state of Arizona will have to pay out-of-state rates. On Monday, the Arizona Supreme Court unanimously sided with an Arizona Court of Appeals' ruling from last year stating that DACA students are not eligible for lower in-state tuition. Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA,) young immigrants who have been brought to the state as children and qualify for DACA are legally allowed to work and study in the U.S. According to the Arizona Supreme Court ruling, the state's current laws don't allow colleges and universities to grant in-state tuition to students without permanent legal status.

No trace of chemical weapons at alleged attack site in Douma - Russian military

No trace of chemical weapons at alleged attack site in Douma - Russian military | 09 April 2018 | The Russian military has found no trace of chemical weapons use after searching parts of Syria's Douma allegedly targeted by an "attack." Photos of victims posted by the White Helmets [terrorist group] are fake, Russia's Defense Ministry said. Experts in radiological, chemical and biological warfare, as well as medics, on Monday inspected the parts of the Eastern Ghouta city of Douma, where an alleged chemical attack supposedly took place on Saturday, the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria said in a statement. The specialists "found no traces of the use of chemical agents" after searching the sites, the statement said. The center's medical specialists also visited a local hospital but found no patients that showed signs of chemical weapons poisoning.

Obama State Dept. used taxpayer dollars to fund George Soros group's political activities in Albania, watchdog group says

Looks like the US *interfered in foreign elections,* again: Obama State Dept. used taxpayer dollars to fund George Soros group's political activities in Albania, watchdog group says | 05 April 2018 | The Obama administration sent U.S. taxpayer funds to a group backed by billionaire George Soros to fund left-wing Deep State activities in Albania, a conservative watchdog group says. The group, Judicial Watch, obtained 32 pages of records from the Justice Department this week through a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID.) The new documents show USAID funds were sent through the agency's Civil Society Project to back Soros's "East West Management Institute" through USAID's "Justice for [All" campaign. USAID provided $8.8 million in 2016 to that campaign.

F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump's Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen, Seizing Privileged Communications

F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump's Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen, Seizing Privileged Communications | 09 April 2018 | The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics... Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen's lawyer, who called the search "completely inappropriate and unnecessary." The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller's investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York. "Today the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients," said Stephen Ryan, his lawyer. "I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller."

Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera during the reelection campaign and assisted with Hispanic media outreach.

Breaking: Russian MoD: Two Israeli Warplanes Attacked Syrian Airbase | 09 April 2018 | Israel has yet to confirm the information, while local media reports suggested that the IDF spy jet had been spotted in the area. The Russian Defense Ministry has stated that it had been two Israeli warplanes that had attacked a Syrian government T-4 airbase in the Homs province early on Monday.

According to the Russian military, the strikes were carried out from Lebanese airspace. Five out of eight strikes, carried out by the Israeli F-15 jets, were destroyed by Syrian air defenses, the ministry said.

Red Crescent Found No Trace of Chemical Weapons in Syria's Douma - Doctor

Red Crescent Found No Trace of Chemical Weapons in Syria's Douma - Doctor | 09 April 2018 | NATO states, including the US and Turkey, have accused Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons in a move, which has been slammed by Damascus, Moscow and Tehran as a pretext for airstrikes on the Syrian government forces. Syrian medical specialists have found no trace of chemical weapons having been used in Eastern Ghouta, a member of the Red Crescent, who worked for the last seven years at the central hospital of Douma in Eastern Ghouta, told journalists. "I have spent seven years working at the central hospital in Douma. At some point, our [hospital] received six people, who were allegedly suffering from respiratory problems. Following a medical examination, we did not find any problems at all, any traces of chemical agents," Saif al-Deen Hobiya, a member of the Red Crescent, said.

Google employees petition CEO to drop out of Pentagon AI project

Google employees petition CEO to drop out of Pentagon AI project | 04 April 2018 | Over 3,100 Google employees have signed a petition opposing the company's part in a Pentagon AI program. The letter asked CEO Sundar Pichai to pull Google out of the project, which harnesses artificial intelligence to analyze video and could improve drone targeting. Further, it urged him to establish and enforce a policy that kept the company or its subsidiaries from ever building "warfare technology." That could include a lot of things, but if this partnership is a baseline, said policy would include simply providing government agencies with Google's tech. Gizmodo broke the news last month that the company would lend AI TensorFlow programming kits to the Pentagon's Project Maven, and according to sources, employees were outraged that the government would use it to improve drone operations.

White Helmets accused of looting very little aid coming into Aleppo, forcing starving locals to act on camera in return for a loaf of bread | 08 April 2018 | The notorious White Helmets group, claiming to be impartial first responders protecting Syrians -- and filming themselves doing so -- are again to the fore in Western media coverage, after they accused Damascus of a chemical attack...The self-proclaimed rescuers were working closely with the militants and operating under their protection, Aleppans told RT, describing how supposedly impartial humanitarian workers were saving only "their own." White Helmets members were also accused of looting the very little aid that was coming into the city and of using the provisions to force starving locals to act on camera in return for a loaf of bread. Further evidence of the Western-funded group's close collaboration with militants was discovered by Gazdiev, as he toured several of their headquarters across the destroyed city.

Moscow calls 'chemical attack' in Douma 'fake news,' warns against Syrian intervention

Moscow calls 'chemical attack' in Douma 'fake news,' warns against Syrian intervention | 08 April 2018 | Reports of an alleged gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma are 'fake news' aimed at justifying potential strikes against Syria, Moscow said. It warned of "dire consequences" in the event of any military interference. The Russian Foreign Ministry denounced the latest reports about a chemical attack that allegedly affected dozens of civilians in the militant-controlled town of Douma. It said the reports were another example of a "continuous series of fake news about the use of chlorine and other chemical agents by the government forces." The ministry pointed out that the source of the reports was the notorious "civil defense" group, the White Helmets, which has been repeatedly accused of having ties to [*are* the] terrorists, as well as other groups based in the US and UK.

CDC scientist found dead in Atlanta after mysterious disappearance likely drowned, police say

CDC scientist found dead in Atlanta after mysterious disappearance likely drowned, police say | 05 April 2018 | A Centers for Disease and Control employee who mysteriously vanished two months ago was found dead in an Atlanta river and likely drowned, police said Thursday. Dr. Timothy Cunningham, a promising official who aided the CDC in responses to Ebola and Zika outbreaks, went missing in February after leaving work early at his office in Chamblee, Ga. Cunningham told co-workers he felt sick and planned to finish working at home. But in the hours and days before his disappearance, Cunningham, 35, made a number of odd comments. [Sounds like Dr. Cunningham was drugged, murdered, and dumped. He's likely gone the way of the eighty-plus dead holistic doctors, many of whom reported how Nagalase, added to vaccines, spurs tumor growth by suppressing the body's immune system.]
