Trump says pardon for Paul Manafort still a possibility

Trump says pardon for Paul Manafort still a possibility | 28 Nov 2018 | He’s never discussed a pardon for Paul Manafort, President Trump said Wednesday -- but it's "not off the table." "It was never discussed, but I wouldn't take it off the table. Why would I take it off the table?" the president said during an Oval Office interview. He ripped special counsel Robert Mueller's probe and charged that Manafort, former political adviser Roger Stone and Stone's associate Jerome Corsi were all asked to lie by the special counsel. "If you told the truth, you go to jail," Trump said.

ISIS to launch false flag chemical attack on Syrian Kurds; Russian military watching closely --The terrorists want to frame Damascus for the attack to trigger new US-led airstrikes. | 28 Nov 2018 | Islamic State terrorists are plotting to shell Kurdish-led militia with chemical-filled munitions in Deir ez-Zor, Syria, Russian military said.

IS militants are seeking to shell positions held by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), framing Damascus for the attack. The terrorists seek to trigger massive airstrikes by the US-led coalition against the government forces, the military said.

MSNBC: Majority of Caravan Members Are Men, Some Not Talking About Asylum

MSNBC: Majority of Caravan Members Are Men, Some Not Talking About Asylum | 26 Nov 2018 | An MSNBC correspondent said Monday that the majority of people in the migrant caravan at the southern border were men, noting some of them weren't talking about seeking asylum. Reporting just over the southern border in Tijuana, Mexico, Gadi Schwartz took viewers on a walking tour through the "inner sanctum" of the shelter for the caravan, which consists of Central American migrants... "From what we've seen, the majority are actually men, and some of these men have not articulated that need for asylum," he continued. "Instead, they have talked about going to the United States for a better life and to find work."

Obama agents pepper-sprayed migrants: History challenges caravan response outrage

Obama agents pepper-sprayed migrants: History challenges caravan response outrage | 26 Nov 2018 | Democrats are expressing outrage that U.S. border agents on Sunday shot rounds of tear gas at caravan migrants who threw rocks at law enforcement while trying to breach the U.S.-Mexico border. But critics hammering the Trump administration are glossing over a similar episode that occurred under then-President Barack Obama. In 2013, during the Obama administration, Border Patrol agents reportedly used pepper spray to fend off a group of approximately 100 migrants who attempted to rush the same San Ysidro port of entry. A San Diego Union-Tribune article at the time said agents fired "pepper balls" and used other "intermediate use-of-force devices" to repel the crowd. The migrants in that confrontation also reportedly threw rocks and bottles at U.S. authorities.

Election ploy? Poroshenko declares martial law in Ukraine after Kerch standoff

Election ploy? Poroshenko declares martial law in Ukraine after Kerch standoff | 26 Nov 2018 | Ukraine has declared martial law following a minor skirmish with Russian ships in the Kerch Strait. But why would Kiev take such a dramatic move now, five years after declaring itself at war with Russia? Kiev responded swiftly to the Kerch Strait incident, with President Petro Poroshenko announcing that a period of martial law would be imposed. He also claimed that a "serious threat" of "ground invasion" now exists, citing a "secret" document... Why? The answer many are coming up with is simple but highly plausible: The standoff between the Ukrainian and Russian ships could have been a planned provocation - a domestic ploy aimed at swinging a potentially unwinnable election.

Parliament seizes cache of Facebook internal papers

Parliament seizes cache of Facebook internal papers [Yes!] | 24 Noc 2018 | Parliament has used its legal powers to seize internal Facebook [FaCIAbook] documents in an extraordinary attempt to hold the US social media giant to account after chief executive Mark Zuckerberg repeatedly refused to answer MPs' questions. The cache of documents is alleged to contain significant revelations about Facebook decisions on data and privacy controls that led to the Cambridge Analytica scandal. It is claimed they include confidential emails between senior executives, and correspondence with Zuckerberg. Damian Collins, the chair of the culture, media and sport select committee, invoked a rare parliamentary mechanism to compel the founder of a US software company, Six4Three, to hand over the documents during a business trip to London. In another exceptional move, parliament sent a serjeant at arms to his hotel with a final warning and a two-hour deadline to comply with its order. When the software firm founder failed to do so, it's understood he was escorted to parliament. He was told he risked fines and even imprisonment if he didn't hand over the documents.

"This morning at around 7 a.m. Moscow time, three vessels belonging to Ukrainian armed forces violated the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea... to cross the Russian border," read a statement from Russia's federal security agency FSB, which is responsible for maintaining the country's borders. The vessels are undertaking dangerous maneuvers, and are not obeying lawful instructions from the Russian authorities.

The announcement comes as tensions continue to mount as a band of thousands of Central Americans fleeing violence reach the U.S.-Mexico border.

Syria blames foreign states for Aleppo 'toxic gas attack', calls for UN to step in

Syria blames foreign states for Aleppo 'toxic gas attack', calls for UN to step in | 25 Nov 2018 | The militant shelling of Aleppo was the result of some countries' [aka CIA, MI6] attempts to "facilitate" delivery of chemicals to terrorist groups, Damascus said. Syria is calling for the UN to act against states supporting terrorism. At least 46 people -- including 8 children -- have been hospitalized in Aleppo with symptoms of gas poisoning from chlorine, according to the Russian military who sent special units to assist with treating patients after the attack. Russian experts have used "gas analyzers" to confirm the chemical contamination of the shelled areas in Aleppo, a spokesman for Russia’s Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Protection Force said. Samples of soil, as well as fragments of buildings and ammunition, were recovered in order to establish the composition of the toxic substance, used by the militants in the attack, he said.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have suspended northbound and southbound vehicle and pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry, officials told Fox News, and tear gas was apparently being fired from the U.S. side of the border... Fox News had confirmed early Sunday through an organizer for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group helping organize the leading Central American migrant caravan, that members of the caravan were planning to attempt to cross the port of entry at San Ysidro later in the day.

Beijing to Judge Every Resident Based on Behavior by End of 2020

Beijing to Judge Every Resident Based on Behavior by End of 2020 | 21 Nov 2018 | China's plan to judge each of its 1.3 billion people based on their social behavior is moving a step closer to reality, with Beijing set to adopt a lifelong points program by 2021 that assigns personalized ratings for each resident. The capital city will pool data from several departments to reward and punish some 22 million citizens based on their actions and reputations by the end of 2020, according to a plan posted on the Beijing municipal government's website on Monday. Those with better so-called social credit will get "green channel" benefits while those who violate laws will find life more difficult. The Beijing project will improve blacklist systems so that those deemed untrustworthy will be "unable to move even a single step," according to the government's plan.

Stone associate Jerome Corsi is in plea negotiations with special counsel

Stone associate Jerome Corsi is in plea negotiations with special counsel | 23 Nov 2018 | Conservative writer Jerome Corsi is in plea negotiations with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, according to Corsi and another person with knowledge of the talks. The talks with Corsi -- an associate of GOP operative Roger Stone -- could bring Mueller's team closer to determining whether Trump or his advisers were linked to WikiLeaks' release of hacked Democratic emails in 2016, a key part of his long-running inquiry. Corsi provided research on Democratic figures during the campaign to Stone, a longtime Trump adviser. For months, the special counsel has been scrutinizing Stone's activities in an effort to determine whether he coordinated with WikiLeaks. Stone and WikiLeaks have repeatedly denied any such coordination.

Deal with Mexico paves way for asylum overhaul at U.S. border

Deal with Mexico paves way for asylum overhaul at U.S. border | 24 Nov 2018 | The Trump administration has won the support of Mexico's incoming government for a plan to remake U.S. border policy by requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims move through U.S. courts, according to Mexican officials and senior members of President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador's transition team. The agreement would break with long-standing asylum rules and place a formidable barrier in the path of Central American migrants attempting to reach the United States. By reaching the accord, the Trump administration has also overcome Mexico's historic reticence to deepen cooperation with the United States on an issue widely seen here as America's problem.

U.S. Climate Report Warns of Damaged Environment and Shrinking Economy --Report was mandated by Congress and made public by White House | 23 Nov 2018 | A major scientific report issued by 13 federal agencies on Friday presents the starkest warnings to date of the consequences of climate change for the United States, predicting that if significant steps are not taken to rein in global warming, the damage will knock as much as 10 percent off the size of the American economy by century's end. In direct language, the 1,656-page assessment lays out the devastating effects of a changing climate on the economy, health and environment, including record wildfires [well, those and the Direct Energy Weapon-engendered fires] in California, crop failures in the Midwest and crumbling infrastructure in the South. Going forward, American exports and supply chains could be disrupted, agricultural yields could fall to 1980s levels by midcentury and fire season could spread to the Southeast, the report finds.

All told, the health problems and other damage and mitigation costs will total hundreds of billions of dollars in drag on the U.S. economy by the end of this century, the experts said. They also said there is no doubt humans are contributing to global warming.

Operating on a budget of £1.9 million (US$2.4 million), the secretive Integrity Initiative consists of "clusters" of local politicians, journalists, military personnel, scientists and academics. The team is dedicated to searching for and publishing "evidence" of Russian interference in European affairs, while themselves influencing leadership behind the scenes, the documents claim.
