Federal Legal Age to Buy Tobacco Products Officially Raised to 21 | 23 Dec 2019| On Friday, President Donald Trump signed a $1.4 trillion spending package that, on top of many things, raises the federal legal age for purchasing tobacco from 18 to 21. Beginning in the summer of 2020, it will be a violation of federal law to sell tobacco to anyone under the age of 21. Since the 1990s, federal law mandated the legal age to purchase tobacco be at least 18. The law also encompasses e-cigarettes and vaping cartridge, not just traditional tobacco products like cigarettes and cigars, adding regulation to an industry that, as TIME's Jamie Ducharme writes, "has proliferated largely unchecked."

In addition, government surveillance systems in many countries are driving legislative mandates requiring more and more people to receive vaccines recommended by the state.

Haspel has a controversial history of protecting the agency from political scrutiny and has rarely made public statements about ongoing intelligence matters.

WikiLeaks: Chemical Weapons Watchdog Ordered Deletion of 'All Traces' of Findings That Syrian 'Chemical Attack' May Have Been Staged

WikiLeaks: Chemical Weapons Watchdog Ordered Deletion of 'All Traces' of Findings That Syrian 'Chemical Attack' May Have Been Staged | 27 Dec 2019 | Wikileaks has published shocking leaked documents from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in which they covered up a dissenting report that concluded chemical weapons were not used in the Syrian city of Duoma last year. The latest release is the fourth batch of leaked documents that WikiLeaks has published from OPCW. In one of the leaked e-mail exchanges, from February 27-28, between members of the fact finding mission (FFM) deployed to Douma and senior officials of the OPCW, the watchdog's Chief of Cabinet Sebastien Braha ordered the removal of "all traces" of a report by Ian Henderson... Henderson had inspected the sites in Douma and two cylinders that were found on the site of the alleged attack. In his report, he had concluded that the cylinders were more likely placed there -- not dropped. His findings heavily indicated that the "attack" was staged.

IG Report Reveals Steele Funneled Claims Through John McCain After FBI Dropped Him

IG Report Reveals Steele Funneled Claims Through John McCain After FBI Dropped Him | 26 Dec 2019 | Late Senator [Deep State sack of warmongering garbage] John McCain provided disgraced former FBI chief James Comey with five separate reports from Christopher Steele that the FBI didn't previously possess related to unsubstantiated allegations of collusion between Russia and President Trump's 2016 campaign, the Justice Department's recent Inspector General report revealed. There have long been questions about why it was necessary for McCain to pass Steele's anti-Trump dossier to Comey on December 9, 2016, several weeks after the November 2016 presidential election. By then, Steele had already met numerous times with FBI agents to provide them with his controversial reports. Steele, however, was terminated as an FBI source in the fall of 2016 because he spoke to the news media.

Trump accuses Pelosi of 'crying for fairness' in Senate trial after 'unfair' House impeachment

Trump accuses Pelosi of 'crying for fairness' in Senate trial after 'unfair' House impeachment | 23 Dec 2019 | President Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday for making demands of the Senate regarding his upcoming trial as she sits on two impeachment articles, accusing her of "crying for fairness" after leading an "unfair" process in the House. Throughout the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry, Trump and fellow Republicans criticized elements of the process -- including the initial closed-door sessions with witnesses, an invitation for him to participate in a hearing while he was overseas, and the decision to cite the president's assertion of executive privilege as evidence of obstruction as opposed to battling it out in court.
 

House Dems raise prospect of new impeachment articles

House Dems raise prospect of new impeachment articles | 23 Dec 2019 | The lawyer for House Judiciary Committee Democrats revealed in a Monday court filing that there is a possibility lawmakers could pursue even more articles of impeachment against President Trump -- despite having already adopted two of them last week following a grueling, historic and bitterly partisan debate. The prospect of additional articles -- while perhaps unlikely -- was floated as part of a court battle over Democrats' bid to compel testimony from former White House Counsel Don McGahn. Shortly before a 4 p.m. deadline imposed by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the committee counsel filed a brief making their case for why they still want to hear from McGahn, despite having already voted for impeachment.

Jim Jordan of Ohio, Doug Collins of Georgia and John Ratcliffe of Texas to represent President Trump in his looming Senate impeachment trial.

"You want people that have been through this, understand it, been in the hearings even when they were in the basement." "The basement” is a reference to the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, where House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., held the initial closed-door testimonies in the impeachment inquiry into Trump.

NSA has been 'lying to the courts all along,' says whistleblower, as judges give warrantless surveillance the thumbs-up

NSA has been 'lying to the courts all along,' says whistleblower, as judges give warrantless surveillance the thumbs-up | 21 Dec 2019 | The National Security Agency can gather the data of US citizens without a warrant - as long as it gathers this data by mistake, a court has ruled. However, this suits the agency just fine, whistleblower William Binney told RT. On Wednesday, the 2nd Court of Appeals in New York declared this "incidental collection" of information permissible. The NSA has maintained that it is incapable of separating properly and improperly gathered data, but former NSA Technical Director William Binney told RT that this is simply untrue. "They’ve been lying to the courts all along," Binney said. "They've had the capability to sort that stuff out. It's just that they don’t want to."

Bombshell: After finding of hundreds of cancer genes in MMR vaccines, FDA researcher admits viral cells in vaccines may 'activate' genes and spread more disease

Bombshell: After finding of hundreds of cancer genes in MMR vaccines, FDA researcher admits viral cells in vaccines may 'activate' genes and spread more disease | 19 Nov 2019 | The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published the results of an eye-opening investigation which found that the cellular matter used in the manufacture of many childhood vaccines is often contaminated with serious disease-causing viruses. Conducted by Arifa S. Khan, Ph.D., the study looked at viral-based vaccines like seasonal flu shots that are made from living cells, or replicable cell substrates. As it turns out, these continual growth cells are oftentimes contaminated with hidden viral fragments that are tumorigenic in nature, meaning they have the potential to cause cancer. These viruses tend to be latent, meaning they live "quietly" inside cells before eventually making their presence known later on down the road in the form of chronic disease. Thus, a person injected with a vaccine containing these cancer-causing viruses may not suffer the health consequences until long after he or she was jabbed -- we're talking many, many years, in some cases.

Trump reportedly signed the bill while aboard Air Force One en route to Mar-a-Lago for the holidays.

Cancers Hit Dozens of U.S. Veterans Deployed to Uzbek Base Where Ponds Glowed Green

Cancers Hit Dozens of U.S. Veterans Deployed to Uzbek Base Where Ponds Glowed Green | 19 Dec 2019 | More than 60 U.S. military personnel deployed to a site in Uzbekistan where ponds glowed green and black goo oozed from the ground have reportedly been diagnosed with cancer or died from the disease. McClatchy obtained documents showing reports of radiation at the base, known as K2, which was leased by the U.S. from the Uzbek government weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks because it was near targets in northern Afghanistan. The documents reportedly show that K2 was contaminated with chemical-weapons remnants, radioactive processed uranium, and other lethal hazards. They also indicate the Defense Department was aware that K2 was toxic from the start, with one report dated from November 2001 saying: "Ground contamination at Karshi-Khanabad Airfield poses health risks to U.S. forces deployed there." [Ergo, Deep State sack of sh*t George W. Bush knew about it - but did nothing.]

The Gateway Pundit and Epoch Times Banned by Wikipedia Over Truthful Reporting on Ukraine and Russia Hoax

The Gateway Pundit and Epoch Times Banned by Wikipedia Over Truthful Reporting on Ukraine and Russia Hoax | 20 Dec 2019 | Breitbart News today reported the Wikipedia blacklists now include The Epoch Times and The Gateway Pundit for our truthful reporting on Russiagate. China critics the Epoch Times and conservative outlet the Gateway Pundit have been banned from use as reliable sources on Wikipedia in the latest cases of news outlets that support President Trump being banned from the online encyclopedia... Gateway Pundit’s ban came from a proposal soon after the proposed ban for Epoch Times. The ban proposal came in response to editor "BullRangifer" removing a 2017 piece criticizing media silence on Ukraine colluding with Democrats to influence the 2016 election. The article was originally added to frame Gateway Pundit as "fueling conspiracy theories" related to the impeachment inquiry over Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. In fact, the piece correctly noted Politico's coverage of DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa soliciting Ukrainian interference and then-Democratic minority leader of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff expressing concerns about the reported interference.

Mitch McConnell slams 'most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair' impeachment inquiry

Mitch McConnell slams 'most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair' impeachment inquiry | 19 Dec 2019 | Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday slammed President Trump's impeachment as the "most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair" in modern history -- and accused Democrats of being "too afraid" to send the articles to the Senate for trial. The Republican leader took to the Senate floor to lay into Wednesday's historic vote, calling it the "first purely partisan presidential impeachment since the wake of the Civil War." Calling the vote a "predetermined end of a partisan crusade that began even before President Trump was nominated," he said the "rushed and rigged inquiry" was "poisoned" from the outset.

House votes along party lines to impeach Trump

Breaking: House votes along party lines to impeach Trump | 18 Dec 2019 | The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted almost entirely along party lines to impeach President Trump following a rancorous, day-long hearing -- making him just the third president in U.S. history to suffer the congressional rebuke. Voting began at 8:09 p.m. and Democrats reached the necessary 216 majority on the first article -- that Trump abused the power of his office for personal gain -- at roughly 8:24 p.m. Democrats passed the second article, that Trump obstructed Congress by refusing to cooperate, garnering the needed 216 votes at 8:42 p.m. The vote sets up a showdown in the GOP-led Senate, where Republicans have said there is virtually no chance Trump would be convicted and removed from office.

The announcement would come just days after Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad rejoined diplomatic talks with the Taliban, which had broken down in September... The U.S. currently has between 12,000 and 13,000 troops in Afghanistan.

It begins: Virginia county forms active militia, declares itself Second Amendment sanctuary city

It begins: Virginia county forms active militia, declares itself Second Amendment sanctuary city | 16 Dec 2019 | Earlier in the week, we reported on how lawmakers over in Virginia were threatening to use the National Guard if members of local law enforcement refused to enforce laws passed in the state that they felt violated the second amendment. Well, looks like Tazewell County isn't going down without a fight. On top of calling themselves a second amendment sanctuary county, they're also crafting a militia as well...The resolutions in Tazewell County would remove funding for any law enforcement department that would infringe residents' right to keep and bear arms.

House votes to impeach Trump on two counts, as president holds defiant rally

Breaking: House votes to impeach Trump on two counts, as president holds defiant rally | 18 Dec 2019 | The House voted to impeach President Trump for "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress" related to his dealings with Ukraine after six hours of heated debate Wednesday, making Trump the third American president ever to be impeached. The separate votes on the two counts teed up an all-but-certain Senate acquittal, should House Democrats forward the charges to the GOP-controlled chamber. They also fulfilled a promise made by some Democrats ever since Trump's inauguration to impeach him, even as polls have shown support for impeachment declining. The final vote on the abuse-of-power count was 230-197, with Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voting present. In a statement Gabbard called for a censure resolution instead of impeachment... No Republicans voted to impeach the president on either count, even though House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had vowed earlier this year that impeachment would need to be a bipartisan effort to have legitimacy.
