Russia won't respond to UK ultimatum until samples of alleged chemical weapon received - Lavrov

Russia won't respond to UK ultimatum until samples of alleged chemical weapon received - Lavrov | 13 March 2018 | Moscow will not respond to the British request about a clandestine Soviet chemical weapon allegedly used in an ex-double agent's poisoning until a sample of the agent is provided, the Russian foreign minister said. On Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said a chemical weapon developed under a secret Soviet program dubbed Novichok was used in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal. May demanded that Russia provide details of the program, saying otherwise London would consider the poisoning an attack directed by the Russian government. The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that it had summoned British Ambassador to Moscow Laurie Bristow.

Pentagon to Congress: You Can't Stop Us from Fueling Saudi Arabia's War in Yemen

Pentagon to Congress: You Can't Stop Us from Fueling Saudi Arabia's War in Yemen | 09 March 2018 | On February 28, Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced Senate Joint Resolution 54, a resolution that seeks to end U.S. support for Saudi Arabia's war in on Yemen. Even before the resolution was introduced, the Department of Defense responded with the extraordinary claim that Congress lacked the legal authority to "override the President's determination as Commander in Chief" and end the United States involvement in the conflict...The Pentagon's claim that Congress lacks the power to limit U.S. involvement in the Yemeni civil war is an even more serious encroachment on Congress's constitutional authority over the military.

UK's May says 'highly likely' Russia behind nerve attack on spy

UK's May says 'highly likely' Russia behind nerve attack on spy | 12 March 2018 | British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday it was "highly likely" that Moscow was responsible for the poisoning in England of Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter using a military-grade nerve agent. May told parliament that either the Russian state was directly responsible for the poisoning or it had allowed the nerve agent to get into the hands of others. London has given Russia until the end of Tuesday to explain its use.

Three package bombings in Texas are linked, police say; two people killed

Three package bombings in Texas are linked, police say; two people killed | 12 March 2018 | Residents of a home on the eastern edge of Austin rose Monday to find a package that they weren't expecting outside the front door...That's when, according to police, it exploded. Someone had placed a bomb inside. The blast killed a 17-year-old boy and injured a woman. A few hours later, about five miles south, a 75-year-old woman found a similar package on her porch. When she picked it up, it detonated, sending her to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, officials said. Investigators quickly realized that the bombings strongly resembled a March 2 case involving a package that exploded and killed a man in his northeast Austin home. As hundreds of thousands of visitors are swarming Austin for the annual South by Southwest festival, which began Friday and runs through March 17, police said they had linked the three package bombings -- raising fears that someone is trying to terrorize the Texas capital during the city's biggest event of the year.

Hawaii refuses to release internal records about the January missile alert that left islanders fearing a nuclear blast

Hawaii refuses to release internal records about the January missile alert that left islanders fearing a nuclear blast -- For nearly two months, Gov. David Ige's office has refused to release information showing how the Hawaii missile alert was handled --Ige's office has declined to release phone logs, text messages, instant messages and calendars related to the missile alert | 12 March 2018 | Hawaii officials have repeatedly pointed to a low-level state employee and a breakdown in his agency's leadership as the main cause for a January missile alert that left hundreds of thousands of islanders thinking they might die in a nuclear blast. But efforts to find out more about what other top officials did that day have been stymied at the highest levels of state government. Hawaii law says opening the government to public scrutiny 'is the only viable and reasonable method of protecting the public's interest.' But for nearly two months, Gov. David Ige's office has refused to provide information requested by The Associated Press that could show how he and other officials handled the crisis.

FBI Insiders Blow Whistle on Massive Las Vegas Cover Up; Agents Told Not to Investigate Key Evidence in Mandalay Bay Massacre

FBI Insiders Blow Whistle on Massive Las Vegas Cover Up; Agents Told Not to Investigate Key Evidence in Mandalay Bay Massacre | 12 March 2018 | The "official" narrative you've been fed by the FBI and Las Vegas officials about the massacre at Mandalay Bay that claimed 58 lives is purely fiction, a polished story contrived to cover up the disturbing facts surrounding the worst mass shooting ever in the United States, according the FBI insiders and high-ranking intelligence officials. And now, after months of corporate-infused spin...and outright lies from officials in the FBI and the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, federal agents and intelligence officials are spilling the beans about what really happened on and before the Oct. 1 massacre. "It's a movie script that was written after the shooting to rewrite what really happened," one FBI agent said. "The investigation is an entirely different story that we are not allowed to talk about. If we do and get caught, we get fired and probably charged (criminally)."

House Intelligence Committee ending Russia probe, says no collusion found

House GOP ending Russia probe, says no collusion found | 12 March 2018 | The House Intelligence Committee is shutting down its contentious investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the top Republican leading the probe announced on Monday. The committee will interview no more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing their final report, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) told reporters. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday. The draft document asserts that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the most politically charged question examined by the committee. It will also contradict an official U.S. intelligence community assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin showed a "preference" for Donald Trump during the race -- another assertion that Trump has disputed.

Student paper apologizes for printing photo of conservative scholar

Student paper apologizes for printing photo of conservative scholar | 08 March 2018 | The editor-in-chief of a student newspaper at Middlebury College has personally apologized for running a photo of conservative scholar Charles Murray on the front page. In an "Editor's Note" published online last week, Editor-in-Chief of The Middlebury Campus, Ethan Brady, penned an extensive apology for publishing the photo of Murray, acknowledging that the decision could have come across as "jarring." According to Brady, the decision to publish the photograph sparked a "heated debate" among the editors last week, with most of the editorial staff opposing the idea.

WH unveils proposals to 'harden' schools in wake of Fla. shooting

WH unveils proposals to 'harden' schools in wake of Fla. shooting | 11 March 2018 | The Trump administration on Sunday unveiled a series of proposals on school safety and gun restrictions in the wake of the recent shooting in Florida, including a push for states to provide firearms training for school staff members...The administration will also not push for universal background checks or an increase in the age requirement to purchase a rifle. Instead, as part of an effort to "harden" American schools, officials said the administration will provide assistance to states to arm teachers, encourage them to pass laws keeping guns away from dangerous individuals and call on Congress to pass legislation strengthening the national background check system.

180 troops sent to Salisbury after Russian ex-double agent poisoning

180 troops sent to Salisbury after Russian ex-double agent poisoning | 10 March 2018 | Up to 180 troops are being sent to the city where Russian ex-double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned last Sunday. They will help with the removal of contaminated items linked to the crime. The police and defence ministry have confirmed they will be sending Armed Forces personnel to Salisbury in order to handle items in the area where Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were found slumped on a bench last Sunday...Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey, one of the first officers to respond, was also left seriously ill. It is now understood that Bailey was poisoned at Skripal's home, according to Sky News. That has led to the theory that Skripal and his daughter had been poisoned at the ex-MI6 agent's house in Christie Miller Road, and not the restaurant Zizzi where they dined before collapsing.

250 officers from 8 units: UK diverts 'enormous resources' to probe Russian ex-spy's poisoning

250 officers from 8 units: UK diverts 'enormous resources' to probe Russian ex-spy's poisoning | 11 March 2018 | Amid hysteria surrounding the mysterious poisoning of Sergei Skripal, Britain is dedicating a significant part of the country's anti-terrorism capacity to look for Moscow's hand in the former Russian double agent's misfortune. The UK government has diverted significant resources, with eight out of Britain's 11 anti-terrorism units currently helping to investigate the poisoning of former GRU agent Sergei Skripal, Home Secretary Amber Rudd revealed, at a time when a "severe" international terrorism threat hangs over Britain. The UK believes that Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were exposed to a nerve agent. Following the incident, authorities managed to collect 240 pieces of evidence and have identified some 200 witnesses to the crime, Rudd said, noting that 250 officers are taking part in the investigation.

Trump in full campaign mode at Pennsylvania rally

Trump in full campaign mode at Pennsylvania rally | 10 March 2018 | President Trump was in full campaign mode on Saturday at a rally for Republican congressional hopeful Rick Saccone, returning to the bombastic, unrestrained candidate from 2016.

Islamists in E. Ghouta plan to stage false flag chemical attack - Damascus

Islamists in E. Ghouta plan to stage false flag chemical attack - Damascus | 11 March 2018 | Syria's deputy foreign minister says militants plan a chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta on Sunday, will highlight the female victims and then pin the blame on Damascus. "We have received information that militants plan to stage an attack between the districts of Mesraba and Beit Sawa...The performance is thought to be scheduled for March 11," Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Mekdad, told journalists in Damascus. Earlier this week, the White Helmets, a self-proclaimed civil defense group, accused the Syrian government of staging a chlorine attack that affected 30 residents of Eastern Ghouta, a militant-held suburb of Damascus wrecked by intense fighting in the past month. The government, which [accurately] regards the White Helmets as a foreign-funded terrorist propaganda organization, has rejected these claims.

Trump pardons former Navy sailor imprisoned for taking photos on nuclear submarine, White House says

Trump pardons former Navy sailor imprisoned for taking photos on nuclear submarine, White House says | 09 March 2018 | Kristian Saucier, the former U.S. Navy sailor who served a year behind bars for taking photos of classified areas in a nuclear submarine, has been pardoned, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday. Saucier recently received a letter from the Department of Justice saying it was taking a new look at his request for a pardon. Although he was released from jail last year, he remained under house arrest. President Trump had denounced the government's handling of Saucier's case, calling it a political move and saying it contrasted with the velvet-gloved response to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's mismanagement of classified information through a private server.

NRA sues Florida to block part of new gun law | 09 March 2018 | The National Rifle Association is suing the state of Florida after Gov. Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 7026 into law Friday, the first gun control legislation enacted in the state after the Parkland school massacre on February 14. The NRA suit focuses on the part of the law that raises the minimum age to purchase a firearm to 21 from 18.

The law, known as the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, tightens gun control in several ways but also allows some teachers to be armed. One provision of the law raises the minimum age to purchase a firearm to 21 from 18.

7 Years on, Sailors Exposed to Fukushima Radiation Seek Their Day in Court

7 Years on, Sailors Exposed to Fukushima Radiation Seek Their Day in Court --Special investigation: US military personnel are sick and dying, and want the nuclear plant's designers and owners to take responsibility. | 09 March 2018 | ...There are currently 99 operating civilian nuclear reactors in the United States, and 22 of those are General Electric Mark 1 boiling-water reactors--the make and model identical to the three that melted down and exploded at Fukushima Daiichi. Based on a 1955 design, all but four of the US reactors have now been online for more than 40 years. All of them have the same too-small primary containment vessel, the same questionable alloys, the same bolted-on lid, the same safety systems, and (with one exception) the same vent "upgrade" that failed to prevent the tragic failures at the Japanese nuclear plant. Large US cities, such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, are all closer to BWRs than Tokyo is to Fukushima Daiichi.

Parsons Green suspect Ahmed Hassan admitted making bomb, court hears

Parsons Green suspect Ahmed Hassan admitted making bomb, court hears | 09 March 2018 | An Iraqi teen on trial over the Parsons Green bomb confessed to making the device and leaving it on a train when questioned by police 24 hours after the attack. Thirty people were injured after an improvised device filled with screwdrivers, nuts and knives partially detonated during rush hour last September on a Tube train at Parsons Green station. Victims were left with burns to the face, legs and hands and singed hair which fell out in clumps after the bomb - which was hidden inside a bucket in a Lidl bag - sent a "fireball" through the carriage.

Two 'heroic' SWAT team members are suspended without pay for disobeying orders and responding to Florida high school massacre while 'cowardly' deputies cowered outside

Two 'heroic' SWAT team members are suspended without pay for disobeying orders and responding to Florida high school massacre while 'cowardly' deputies cowered outside | 09 March 2018 | Two Florida SWAT team members have been suspended after responding to the Florida massacre without their bosses' permission. Detectives Jeffrey Gilbert and Carl Schlosser - as identified by the Florida Sun-Sentinel - did not tell superiors that they were going to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where mass shooter Nikolas Cruz, 19, [allegedly] killed 17 people. After they jumped into action without following protocol, the two were suspended from the Miramar Police Department's 'privileged program' on February 22 and were ordered to surrender their SWAT-issued rifles. [This is what happens when to you try to halt a (possible) false flag, already in progress. (Remember when Dick Cheney told NORAD to stand down, so the 9/11 attacks could proceed as planned?) The Parkland shooting is beginning to look like it was a LIHOP (Let It Happen On Purpose) or a MIHOP (Make It Happen On Purpose). --LRP]

Russian embassy: Poisoned spy was actually working for MI6 | 08 March 2018 | Russia's government claimed Thursday morning that a former Russian spy that British authorities say was poisoned with a nerve agent in the United Kingdom on Sunday was actually a British spy working for the country's MI6 intelligence bureau. In a tweet from the Russian Embassy in London, the country's government claimed that Sergei Skripal, who was saved from a poisoning attempt alongside his daughter over the weekend, "was actually a British spy, working for MI6." Russia's government has dismissed claims that it was involved as speculation meant to hurt Russia's ties with the U.K.

School Safety Administrator Discusses Disturbing Evidence in Parkland School Shooting

School Safety Administrator Discusses Disturbing Evidence in Parkland School Shooting | 07 March 2018 | Wolfgang Halbig, a retired Florida State school administrator and safety expert who researched the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012 and concluded it was a "contrived event," turns his investigative skills to the shooting at Parkland high school. Halbig wrote the school safety plan for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School high school in 2006, and says that the Parkland shooting follows the same script as the Sandy Hook event: There were no trauma helicopters called in, paramedics were not allowed into the school, and it is unknown who declared the victims dead. Halbig discusses in great detail numerous examples of how school administrators and police violated well known safety protocols, the effect of which was to put children and teachers into high risk of being killed -- all in violation of established safety protocols.

'US aid ends up with extremists': Analysts alarmed over Pentagon's 60,000-strong Syrian rebel force

'US aid ends up with extremists': Analysts alarmed over Pentagon's 60,000-strong Syrian rebel force | 07 March 2018 | Analysts have warned that US-supported groups in Syria often defect to extremists with their weapons. That's after it was revealed the Pentagon plans to spend around $300 million to train and equip a 60,000-strong army in Syria. Commenting on the Pentagon's plans to build, train and equip a massive 'Vetted Syrian Opposition' to 'fight' Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS [but still I-CIA-SIS]) in Syria, a number of US-based experts told RT the move has nothing to do with combatting terrorism. Instead, US weapons and aid could easily land in the hands of Islamist extremists, as has often been seen in the past.

Dept. of Justice sues California over 'interference' with immigration enforcement

Dept. of Justice sues California over 'interference' with immigration enforcement | 06 March 2018 | The Trump Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday night against California, saying three recently-passed state laws were deliberately interfering with federal immigration policies. It marked the latest legal and political confrontation with the nation's most populous state, which the federal government says has repeatedly stood in the way of its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and illegal individuals. "The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies," Attorney General Jeff Sessions was expected to tell California law enforcement officers on Wednesday.
