Kids were playing outside as coalition strikes ‘directly targeted’ Raqqa civilians – witnesses to RT

Published time: 23 Aug, 2017 11:08 Edited time: 23 Aug, 2017 11:13

Civilians who escaped from Raqqa, an Islamic State stronghold in Syria, have told RT about the horrors they faced during an airstrike by the US-led coalition, which they say “directly targeted” their homes while children were outside.

The witnesses told RT’s Ruptly video news agency that they believed coalition forces were aware that there were no insurgents in the area, as what they think was a coalition aircraft had filmed them hours before the strike. The aircraft targeted the civilian houses while children were playing in the streets, one man said.

“We were directly targeted by the coalition after their reconnaissance craft filmed us, it was at a low altitude,” an eyewitness told Ruptly at Al-Qamishli National hospital in Hasaka on Tuesday.

“It was very clear that there were no insurgents in that area, there were kids playing in the streets and we were bringing water from a water tap, sipping drops. We were filmed, then directly targeted after hours. Our house and the civilian houses around us were directly targeted.” 

A child with a head wound is seen in the footage. 

Another Raqqa resident questioned the alleged use of white phosphorus in the city’s Faros neighborhood and nearby areas. In June, Amnesty International warned the US-led coalition against the use of white phosphorus near civilians as this is against international law.

“It has been said that the coalition used white phosphorus in the Faros neighborhood of Raqqa. It was the aircraft. Who else would do that? It should be the aircraft. It targeted a civilian neighborhood and the close-by areas,” he said.

At least 78 civilians were killed in Raqqa as a result of US-led coalition airstrikes over the past 24 hours, Syrian news agency SANA reported on Tuesday, citing local and media sources.  

The US-led coalition airstrikes also received condemnation from the UN. Stéphane Dujarric, the spokesman for the UN secretary-general, called for forces to “protect civilians and civilian infrastructure” as “up to 25,000 people remain trapped in the city.”

“Our humanitarian colleagues tell us they are deeply concerned by unconfirmed reports of a high number of civilians killed by an airstrike in Raqqa city over the last 24 hours,” Dujarric said. 

Meanwhile, a large number of the Islamic State terrorists (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Raqqa have left to join the final battle for the besieged city of Deir ez-Zor, according to the Russian military.

Raqqa has been under siege for three months, but the mostly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), backed by the US-led coalition, have not yet captured it. Civilian casualties have been frequently reported since the beginning of the assault.

A UN report says at least 300 civilians were killed in Raqqa in the three months since March, as cited by Reuters.

“They are not taking responsibility for the true scale of civilian casualties,” Nicolas Davies, author of ‘Blood on our Hands,’ about the invasion of Iraq, told RT.

“In 2007, the UN said very clearly that the bombing in civilian areas is a violation of international human rights law and that the presence of a few combatants in a civilian area does not change the nature of that area.”

Davies also recalled the consequences of other strikes in Mosul, Kobani and Fallujah, which he said “had been simply reduced to rubble by the US bombing and artillery fire.”

Defining Hypocrisy: Democrats Warn Steve Bannon Against Publishing Classified Info On Breitbart

Now this is rich. After nearly 9 months of Democrat operatives leaking every piece of sensitive and/or embarrassing information they could get their hands on to the New York Times and Washington Post, they're now suddenly worried about Steve Bannon doing the same. We guess it's one of those 'do as I say, not as I do" sort of things.

As McClatchy points out, Elijah Cummings, the senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, seems to be particularly worried about what Bannon might publish in his renewed role at the helm of Breitbart.

"Steve Bannon has an ongoing obligation to safeguard our nation’s secrets, and he does not gain some kind of extra Constitutional protection just because he is now returning to a position in the media,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

On has to wonder just what has Representative Cummings so terrified about what Bannon could possibly say about anyone in the DNC?!?

Former U.S. Attorney On Awan Indictment: "There Is Something Very Strange Going On Here"

We've written frequently over the past couple of months about the litany of unanswered questions surrounding the mysterious case of Debbie Wasserman Schultz's (DWS) IT staffers. Why did DWS seemingly threaten the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that was confiscated as part of an ongoing legal investigation? Why did DWS keep Awan on her taxpayer funded payroll all the way up until the day he was arrested by the FBI at Dulles airport while trying to flee the country to Pakistan? What, if anything, does the Awan family know about the DNC hacks that may have caused DWS to act in this way?

I think that a lot of political pressure was brought to bear here, in order to keep the indictment as narrow as humanly, legally possible; because what you have here is an absolute viper's nest of collusion, and potentially a massive lawsuit which could bite most of the elites in the DNC.

The narrowness of the indictment was not set accidentally; this was deliberate, and absolutely smacks of coverup and corruption.

Lefties call for Nelson’s Column to be torn down - this LBC host’s response is DEVASTATING

By: malterwitty

“This is my problem, with this frankly puerile butt-hurt line of argument.

“But it’s puerile and childish this notion that this statue hurts my feelings and so I’m going to tear it down.

“Thereby erase history, censor history and my problem with it is the following, where do you stop folks?

“Where do you stop with this desire to re-mould and re-shape how we remember history based on your feelings.”

'It's part of our history' Londoners rail against calls to topple 'racist' Nelson's Column

By: malterwitty

LONDONERS and tourists alike have shut down calls to tear down Nelson’s Column in the capital’s Trafalgar Square in the wake of the Charlottesville riots.

Those speaking to Sky News said it was “part of our history” and insisted the landmark remain despite Admiral Horatio Nelson being an advocate of the slave trade.

Polish Government Demands War Reparations From Germany


The Polish government of the Law and Justice party (PiS) announced earlier this month that it would demand reparations from Germany for the massive damage done to the country under the Nazi occupation in World War II. Just a few days earlier, the European Union had initiated legal proceedings against Poland which could result in the country losing its voting rights in the EU.

A Furious China Responds To Latest Sanctions: Demands "U.S. Immediately Correct Its Mistake" Or Suffer Retaliation

Less than 4 hours ago, the US Treasury announced that in the the latest set of actions targeting North Korea's "WMD program", among the entities sanctioned would be several Chinese and Russian companies and individuals. We said that "what this latest round of sanctions will achieve, is to further anger Beijing and the local population." Well, we didn't even have to wait all day for China to respond on the next morning as it traditionally does, and according to Reuters citing an embassy spokesman, Beijing was so furious with the US "provocation" it scrapped its own protocol of waiting during a "cooldown" period, and instead ripped right back, "urging" the U.S. to "immediately correct its mistake"' of sanctioning Chinese firms over North Korea, to avoid impact on bilateral cooperation.

FLASHBACK - 6 Republicans May Have Taken Payments From Clinton Team To Damage Trump (New Wiki Leak)

The email, sent in July of this year, describes how funds were being diverted from Clinton’s campaign to the Super PACS of Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, and John Kasich.

According to the email:

“JB, CF, and JK PACS will be noticeably silent for the rest of the campaign. Each will receive a significant allowance from advertising budget. HRC is in the loop and has talked to all three personally. Eyes only.”
Other emails that surfaced but do not refer to anything other than title have also surfaced that raised eyebrowS. It seems at a glance that the Clinton Foundation, or as I am calling it, the Pantsuit Mafia, has bought off several key members of the Republican Party to push the Clinton agenda.

A woman has died and another person is injured after an man deliberately drove a stolen van into two bus stops during morning rush hour in Marseille, southern France.

A man was injured in the first crash, which took place at around 8am, and a 42-year-old woman was killed in the second, about one hour later.

The suspect, a 35-year-old man, fled both scenes, and was later arrested in the city’s Old Port area.

The suspect had reportedly stolen the van before deliberately driving it into a packed bus shelter in the Croix-Rouge area of Marseille just after 8am.

The driver then sped off, as ambulances were called to deal with people who had been injured in the attack.

Texas leaders offer mixed responses to UT-Austin's late-night removal of Confederate statues

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick criticized the overnight removal of several Confederate statues from the University of Texas at Austin’s campus while U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz called the decision "the university’s prerogative."

From Charlottesville To Boston, America Is Falling Apart At The Seams

As America once again picks up the rubble from one of its regularly scheduled race riots, the hatred and anger felt by the participants is spreading throughout the country. Black/White Left/Right division is now at one of the highest levels in recent years, again drawing Presidential commentary and endless coverage in the mainstream corporate press.

Antifa Terrorists Plan to Interrupt Trump’s Rally Tonight – But Bikers for Trump Will Stop Them!

President Donald Trump has a massive campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona, tonight. Lines to enter the event are already very long, which presents a security risk… especially after Charlottesville and recent acts of violence caused by angry liberals.

The Bikers for Trump chapter in Arizona will be out in full force to protect Trump-supporting patriots from the angry domestic terrorists, Antifa.


In a New York Times op-ed, the noted scholar of American history addresses the tweet by Trump that removing Confederate statues tears apart “the history and culture of our great country.”

Foner, who is Jewish, notes that most Confederate statues were erected during times of rampant racism and white supremacist fever like the 1890s, which followed the end of Reconstruction and the 1920s, which was the height of a Ku Klux Klan revival.


The subject is Charlottesville, and the rise of neo-Nazis. Israel-promoter Daniel Gordis is granted an op-ed to say that Jews are safer in Israel than America, because in America, Jewish kids don’t know how to play with guns. Here’s the heart of the piece:

Israel has a military draft, and all of our kids served. Those years of service, of coming home on weekends with M-16s that we had to remind them not to leave on the sofas, inculcated in them a confidence about the world that I never had at their age.

Of course Gordis doesn’t tell us where those kids served. The occupied territories, surely, making certain that Palestinians who are resisting their lack of rights for 50 years stay fairly quiet.

Understanding North Korea


Then came WWII (1939-1945), during which the Japanese were driven out of Korea and Manchuria. Korea was finally liberated from Japan’s oppressive rule. By 1945 the people of Korea could finally start planning for their own governance, according to how they wanted to proceed as a society. Kim Il Sung, who was inspired by socialist concepts, had great support among the Korean people (except, of course, for those of the privileged aristocracy who had collaborated with the Japanese). Independent of Kim Il Sung’s movement were indigenous “People’s Committees” that developed throughout the southern parts of Korea. These “People’s Committees” were local groups of workers (factory workers, e.g.) who organized themselves to run factories and farms in a cooperative, democratic way that respected the rights, dignity, and health of the workers. The People’s Committee movement represented an alternative to the unjust social system that privileged the aristocracy/business class.

Opinion - No, Mr. President, Obama wasn't a 'nation-builder' in Afghanistan

Listening to President Trump’s speech Monday night on Afghanistan, it was pretty easy to figure out how his military advisors had convinced him to endorse what is essentially a continuation of the policy he inherited from Barack Obama: using U.S. troops to train and advise Afghan security forces and engage in counter-terrorism operations, while pressing Pakistan to stop providing a haven for the Taliban and other insurgents.

The key was to package a policy largely characterized by continuity as a dramatic departure from the approach followed by Obama. Thus Trump told the nation that U.S. strategy in Afghanistan and Asia “will change dramatically.”

(Ironically, he failed to mention the most significant departure from Obama’s legacy: Trump’s approval of the Pentagon’s request to dispatch a few thousand more U.S. military personnel to Afghanistan. That information was communicated to the press and Congress off-camera by administration officials.)

How Russian Hypersonic Missiles Shattering the Pillars of US Naval Doctrine

The journalist pointed out that one can hardly find any information about the secret weapon.

"It is only known that, according to some estimates, the rocket can reach a fantastic speed of Mach 10, which means that it can travel almost 3.5 kilometers (2.17 mi) per second," Stanavov highlighted.

More importantly, the Zircon's extraordinary speed makes it nearly invulnerable to modern missile defense systems installed on aircraft carriers.

"Even the famous American multifunctional naval combat system Aegis [armed] with [SM-2] Standard missiles is powerless," the journalist stressed.

The crux of the matter is that the Aegis' reaction time is about 8-10 seconds. Even at a speed of 2 kilometers per second, the Zircon will travel a distance of 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) in this period of time. Thus, the US much-praised missile defense system would have no chance to detect and destroy it.

When I say "We don't have the weaponry to guarantee a successful outcome to a military combat with Russia and/or China", this Zircon is one of the reasons why.

Yemeni Airport Catastrophe: Dying Victims Unable to Access Medical Treatment

The closure of Sanaa International Airport in Yemen is an unfortunate element of the multilateral war between Saudi Arabia and Yemen, which has resulted in civilians suffering, according to the director of the Yemeni Democracy Monitoring Center, Abdel Wahab Al Sharfi.

Al Sharfi told Sputnik that the most affected people in this situation are civilians who cannot leave in order to receive medical treatment and basic health necessities.

According to him for over a year the politicians have been solving their political tasks to the detriment of ordinary Yemenis.

Al Sharfi further spoke about how Saudi Arabia is waging a multilateral war against Yemen.

The Saudi military has been doing an incredible job of turning Yemen, already the poorest, and most corrupted failed state in the Middle East, into an actual living hell for the Yemeni people.

As the Architect of this genocide, Prince Salman has to be very pleased with himself.

Iran warns it can make weapons-grade material in days if nuke deal scotched

Iran’s atomic chief warned Tuesday the Islamic Republic needs only five days to ramp up its uranium enrichment to 20 percent, a level at which the material could be used for a nuclear weapon.

No, 20 percent enrichment will not make a nuclear weapon. You need 95% or higher before you will get a nuclear detonation.

US envoy to Philippines speaks out on police killing

The US ambassador to the Philippines called Tuesday for "full accountability" following the alleged murder by local police of a 17-year-old boy as part of President Rodrigo Duterte's drug war.

The killing of Kian Delos Santos last week triggered rare protests against Duterte's controversial but popular campaign to eradicate drugs, with critics saying it highlighted rampant rights abuses by police enforcing the crackdown.

Left unmentioned; the crime, suffering, and killings committed by the drug dealers!

US military constructing new base in Iraq’s Kurdish region: Report

The US military is reportedly building a new permanent base in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region as part of attempts to perpetuate its occupation of the conflict-ridden Arab country indefinitely, regardless of all opposition from religious figures and people from all walks of life.

Iraq's Kurdish-language Rudaw television network reported on Tuesday that the base is being constructed in Kariz village of Zummar district, located 60 kilometers northwest of Mosul, stressing that 60 percent of the work has already been done.

The report added that 120 US soldiers and 300 long-range artillery systems have also been stationed in the area.

Hassan Khalo Ali, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official, said the base is being built on an area of ??20 acres of land, local people can see helicopters continuously taking off and landing and entering the base is prohibited in every way to ordinary people.

Looks like the US military is headed for permanent occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan; this will assist it on controlling the pipelines from countries (as well as controlling Afghanistan's mineral wealth); insuring that the oil is only sold to specific countries, and not to others; and insuring that the oil from Afghanistan and Iraq is only sold in US dollars.

Breaking: Jared Kushner is on his way OUT of the White House

One day after Trump advisor Steve Bannon was “fired”, multiple reports, as well as two different sources, have revealed that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner will most likely be the next high-profile name to make their exit from the White House.

While Intellihub News has heard rumors about Kushner’s impending exit for the last few days, only now are we starting to see public reports and claims that back this up.

Investigative reporter Mike Cernovich, who has in the past published multiple bombshell national security reports including being the first to reveal that Susan Rice was involved with Obama-era unmasking, published a stunning Tweet Saturday morning in which he claimed that Jared was “done”.

Ron Paul & Jacob Hornberger On Trump’s Afghanistan Strategy: What To Expect

President Trump will unveil his new strategy for Afghanistan tonight. Will he do the sensible thing and end the failed longest war in history? Or will he continue doing the same thing and expect that somehow he will “win” the war? Does he even know what “winning” looks like? Today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report is joined by Future of Freedom Foundation president Jacob Hornberger to preview what the president may say…and why:

Destroy A Culture And Reap Tyranny

As many of you are aware, I have been watching the series by Jordan Peterson, The Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories. I have written a couple of posts commenting on certain statements made by Peterson and insights gleaned by me.

With this post, I will capture several different tidbits, taken from several of the videos. I am focused on his points about culture, albeit he makes dozens of other equally insightful points. I do not attempt to cite Peterson word for word; I merely attempt to capture the substance.

Britain Splurges On Warships, Subs & Drones… But May Cut Troops To Plug £30bn Black Hole


The British military could see its troop numbers slashed again to fund spending on state-of-the-art warships, submarines and unmanned drones, it has been revealed.

North Korea says weapons program justifiable in face of threats


North Korea has declared that it will not step back an inch from its nuclear program and other weapons development plans, saying it is fully justifiable in the face of threats of attack against the country.

A senior North Korean diplomat representing the country in a United Nations disarmament forum in Geneva, Switzerland, said on Tuesday that Pyongyang’s weapons activities were legitimate as a form of deterrence and the country would never put the issue on the negotiating table.

“The DPRK will never place its self-defensive nuclear deterrence on the negotiating table or step back an inch from the path it took to bolster the national nuclear force” said Ju Yong Chol, adding that the expansion of the weapons program would continue due to what he called "constant nuclear threats" by the United States.

Well, there you have it; there will be no movement on North Korea's nuclear program.

This is day 2 of the Joint US/Japanese/South Korean sponsored military drills, culminating on 31 August; And I would imagine that either Kim Jung Un will fire one, or more, missiles before the end of these drills, or it will be made to appear that he has done this, courtesy of a US false flag.

Turkey to thwart attempts to set up Kurdish state in Syria: Erdogan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has underlined Turkey’s resolve to prevent any attempt by Syrian Kurdish fighters to establish a Kurdish state in northern Syria.

In a Tuesday speech in Ankara, Erdogan described the Kurdish Peoples' Protection Units (YPG) and the Kurdish Democratic Party (PYD) as terror groups, noting, "We do not and will never allow a so-called state to be established by the PYD, YPG in northern Syria.”

"They want to establish a terror corridor in northern Syria reaching the Mediterranean," he noted.

Erdogan reaffirmed Turkey’s determination to continue to fight against PYD and YPG "wherever we find them.”

The Syrian Kurdish fighters control two "cantons" in Syria's northeast as well as the Afrin region to the west. Turkey says PYD and YPG are the affiliates of Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is considered by Turkey, the US and EU as a terror group.

Apparently, Erdogan didn't get the memo:

Breaking: US Occupation of Syria Now Official

The article goes on to state:

"It has long been assessed that the reason that the US had simultaneously backed ISIS and Kurdish forces was for the purpose of using ISIS as a “place holder” to be defeated, either virtually or in actuality, only to then carve out a US occupation zone under the pretext of forming an independent Kurdish state. Previously last year, representatives of the Kurdish autonomous region made an unconstitutional and unilateral announcement of federalization.

This turn was used to create a seemingly legal ambiguity, or ‘gray area’, to confuse public discourse at the media level. However, the anti-terrorist coalition’s foreign ministers as well as international legal experts are under no illusions that the unilateral declaration of federalization is just as much a violation of Syrian sovereignty as would be a breakaway republic made possible only thanks to a war of US occupation.

Under the international legal norms of the Geneva convention as well as subsequent parallel agreements, a foreign occupying country does not have the right to divide, separate, occupy, or carve out a section of a country regardless of what the occupying army terms such as."

So unless and until Erdogan is willing to fight the US military in Syria, it appears that his plans to prevent a Kurdistan from being carved out of Syria looks like a pipe dream, at this point.

And frankly, I don't think he is going to go there.

The Real Cause of Natural Disasters Might Surprise You

So after enduring the worst natural disaster in American history, New Orleans was given billions of dollars to fix their flood control infrastructure, yet the city government has utterly failed to follow through. And let’s not forget what happened after Katrina. Multiple investigations found that the levees failed due to things like poor design, improper materials, and a lack of maintenance. And everyone knew for decades that one day those levees would fail, yet they kept kicking the can down the road. They’re still kicking the can.

So what really causes a natural disaster? Is it really an act of God, or are people to blame?

Statue of Judaic Confederate slave owner stands untouched in Florida

David Levy Yuleee was one of the tens of thousands of Judaic slave-owners of Sephardic-Judaic descent who bought, sold or traded in black slaves in the western hemisphere, as documented in the revisionist history classic, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews (three volumes).

In the year 2000 the Florida Department of State designated Yulee a “Great Floridian” and “award plaques in his honor” were installed.

Yulee's statue is in Fernandia, Amelia Island, Florida. Needless to say it is untouched. No calls from Republican scalawags or Antifa terrorists have been issued for its removal.

Neither the ADL or the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), both of which are recent recipients of millions of dollars in “anti-racist” donations from Apple Computer CEO Tim Cook, and 21st Century Fox movie mogul James Murdoch (son of Rupert), have raised the issue of the statue’s removal.


There is one statue on Monument Avenue, though, that’s unlike all the others, and which will almost certainly survive any purge: It’s a bronze sculpture of Arthur Ashe, which was erected, after much discussion, rancor and controversy, in 1996, three years after his death from AIDS. It features Ashe, a Richmond native, surrounded by children and holding a set of books in one hand and a racquet in the other. It’s smaller than the other monuments and a little out of the way, but for 21 years the legendary black tennis player has taken his place in the city’s historical Confederate parade.

Trump Declares Open-Ended War in Afghanistan

In his Monday night speech on the Afghan War, President Trump committed the US to an essentially open-ended escalation of the conflict without any specific limitations, while granting commanders broader authority to unilaterally target “the enemy.”

"The Poppy Fields are SAFE! Trump Wages More War Against Afghanistan & Now Also Pakistan"

Like professional LIAR Bill Kristol said, the Deep State is winning. The Poppy Fields are safe, thank G-d, the European False Flags helped convince Trump to keep killing Afghans for years to come. And added bonus is now we're going to be bombing Pakistan, since Syria is kinda off limits. At least West of the Euphrates River.

Goldman Government Sachs knows the Xmas bonuses this year will be extra big, since the Afghanistan opium output will keep soaring. Just thinking of all those hundreds of billions to be laundered by TBTF Wall Street banks and protected by the USG!

The Doomsday Preppers Quick and Easy Food Storage Checklist

When it comes to storing enough food to survive, unassisted and on your own for three six-months or a full year or even longer is the point where most new preppers get overwhelmed and some even give up altogether. And while I agree that storing and rotating such a large amount of food on a continuing basis can be a lot of work and takes dedication, it is by no means impossible, and if done right can even be enjoyable – just follow this food storage list.

But where do you start? You should start with the basics first wheat (or other grains, for those who have trouble digesting gluten), rice, beans, oats, corn, salt, honey, cooking oil and powdered milk.

If you have not started prepping, NOW ...would be a very good time to start, and have the satisfaction of knowing that if there is a major emergency, you can take care of yourself and your loved ones.

When The Left Eats Its Own: Watch ANTIFA Thug Punch BLM Member

Much of the ugliness we see on the Left today is embodied in groups like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. Both groups think they are oppressed, both are obsessed with identity politics, and both are steeped in Marxist ideologies. You’d think that they would get along just fine but that’s not the case. People who have their identities wrapped up in victimhood are narcissistic by nature. They want the spotlight at all times, and can’t stand to see someone else hog it. So it was probably just a matter of time before these two groups clashed.

At a recent protest a member of BLM confronted an ANTIFA member, and challenged him to take off his mask. The crowd of ANTIFA supporters began chanting “He’s a cop!” at the black man. It wasn’t long before the masked ANTIFA thug got in his face, and threw a punch.

The Myth That Bill Clinton Ever Balanced The Federal Budget. The National Debt Hasn't Gone Down Since 1957.

In recent years, there's become a myth that Bill Clinton balanced the budget. While he may have come close , the facts are the budget hasn't been balanced a single year since 1957. This is the best indictment of Keynesian economics and the myth that politicians will do the right thing. Hiding the cost of wars , S&L bailouts, and other "off budget items" has been hiding the problem of government spending from the public. It also helps to have economically ignorant journalists .

Sonos says users must accept new privacy policy or devices may "cease to function"

Sonos has confirmed that existing customers will not be given an option to opt out of its new privacy policy, leaving customers with sound systems that may eventually "cease to function".

It comes as the home sound system maker prepares to begin collecting audio settings, error data, and other account data before the launch of its smart speaker integration in the near future.

Google Folds, Restores Accounts Of Banned Statistics Professor

Yesterday we reported that in a shocking, and explained move, statistics professor Salil Mehta, adjunct professor at Columbia and Georgetown who teaches probability and data science and whose work has appeared on this website on numerous prior occasions, had been banned by Google on Friday, with his email, blog and other Google-linked accounts wiped clean and no longer accessible.

As we discussed yesterday, it was not clear what Salil did to provoke Google:

On Friday afternoon East Coast Time by surprise, I was completely shut down in all my Google accounts (all of my gmail accounts, blog, all of my university pages that were on google sites, etc.) for no reason and no warning. A number of us were stunned and unsure, but clearly we know at this point it wasn’t an accident.

That changed yesterday, because after our article detailing Salil's plight went viral, and was read 300,000 times, Google responded and as of this morning, has restored all of Salil Metha's accounts.

The censoring algorithms Google with which it "punishes" all those who do not tow its party line, have come back to bite it... in a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy.

Congrats to this guy getting his on line life back; but this never should have happened in the first place.

Germany, France and Italy plot EU power to BLOCK 'politically motivated' Chinese takeovers

BRUSSELS should be given powers to rule on whether or not Chinese takeovers of major European companies are motivated by political rather than economic goals, a major report says today.

'Bad choice' Macron's popularity plummets as he scrambles to please EU on France's deficit

EMMANUEL Macron’s popularity rating has plummeted to one of the lowest on record for a new French president as he struggles to force through unpopular policies designed to placate EU beancounters.

French President Macron’s Short-Lived Honeymoon


The former Rothschild banker, economy minister’s honeymoon began by defeating Marine Le Pen decisively on May 7.

Two weeks later, opinion polls showed 62% of respondents viewed him favorably.

His fall from grace was swift, an early August YouGov poll, showing his approval rating plunged to 36% - the lowest ever for a French president this early in his tenure.

He’s accused of ignoring his core supporters. WikiLeaks published thousands of embarrassing emails relating to his campaign and earlier.

Italian psychiatrist Dr. Adriano Segator called him a “dangerous psychopath,” saying “we have a case of full-blown narcissism.”

Treasury Slaps Sanctions On China, Russia Entities And Individuals Over North Korea

In a move that is certain to infuriate China further and result in another deterioration in diplomatic relations between Washington and Beijing, moments ago the United States slapped both Chinese and Russian entities and individuals with new sanctions in the Trump administration's escalating attempts to pressure North Korea to relent and stop its nuclear program and occasional missile launches.

The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control said it would target 10 entities and six individuals who help already sanctioned people who aid North Korea's missile program or "deal in the North Korean energy trade." The U.S. also aims to sanction people and groups that allow North Korean entities to access the U.S. financial system or helps its exportation of workers, according to the Treasury:

It is deeply disturbing how quickly financial sanctions become preludes to wars against those countries which have been sanctioned.

War: Breitbart Is About to Go Medieval on Trump’s Administration

President Trump may yet find that the biggest threat to his presidency isn’t the Democrats, NeverTrump, or even the media.

The biggest threat may be his own ego, and those he kept around for as long as they were useful, then discarded. Trump built his campaign, then the opening months of his presidency on the backs of eager, and equally ambitious loyalists, then, one-by-one, he jettisoned them back into the real world.

Just as the GOP is living the slow-motion horror of having accepted Donald Trump as a legitimate candidate and are now forced to stand by and watch him take a sledge hammer to the party’s viability, Trump will realize he’s not immune to the chaos, either.

Mnuchin: I Assume Fort Knox Gold Is Still There


US Treasury Secretary ‘assumes’ the gold is still in Fort Knox, 64 years after it was audited.

81 years after it was built Fort Knox received its third visit from a US Treasury Secretary yesterday, Steven Mnuchin.

The fortified facility is reportedly surrounded by 30,000 soldiers, tanks, armored personnel carriers, attack helicopters, and artillery. Despite this, there is still concern as to whether the gold is there.

As he headed in, Mnuchin told an audience “I assume the gold is still there…It would really be quite a movie if we walked in and there was no gold.”

FBI Suspects Members of Congress Leaked Grand Jury Indictment to the Awans; DOJ Officials Possibly Implicated Too

FBI agents suspect somebody in Congress tipped off the Awans that they would be indicted and now the criminal cases once-seemingly isolated to a group of rogue Pakistani IT specialists working for Congress suddenly has gotten much larger. And much more troubling.

Federal agents said preceding his arrest, Imran Awan acted like a man who was recently tipped off that he would be pinched and moreover, it was no coincidence Awan’s wife was whisked out of the country in March after sidestepping the FBI at Dulles International Airport to flee to Pakistan.

“She had cardboard boxes for luggage,” one FBI agent said. “The school didn’t even know she took her kids out.”

NATO Drills: Bulgarian Soldiers Refused to Shoot Targets with Russian Signs

How fragile the NATO ranks are is illustrated by the following incident that happened at the Noble Jump exercise (NOJP 17) held in June in Romania. Military units from 11 NATO countries: Albania, Bulgaria, Great Britain, Greece, Spain, Latvia, Holland, Norway, Poland, Romania and the USA took part in the drills. During the shooting at the training grounds, the Bulgarian soldiers flatly refused to shoot as “Russian identification marks have been placed on the targets, and they won’t shoot at Russians!”

This does not augur well for NATO readiness at any level, should there be an actual, verifiable "threat" against it.

Breaking: US Occupation of Syria Now Official

As RT reports, US Commander of American forces in Iraq and Syria Lt. General Stephen Townshend stated:

“We’ve informed the Russians where we’re at … (they) tell us they’ve informed the Syrians, and I’d just say that we will defend ourselves if we feel threatened.”

Since, as Reuters reports, clashes between Kurdish and Syrian forces have intensified.

Have Syria's Bashir al Assad and Russia's Putin received this memo?!?

Because the US carving up of Syria, in order to create an independent Kurdistan, is completely illegal, under international law.

The number of flash points, which could ultimately trigger US wars against Russia and/or China right now, are growing exponentially; this is a very bad situation into which the US government and military have gotten us, and one which, I fear, will not end well for the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika.

Visiting U.S. military commanders to issue warning to Pyongyang

Three top U.S. military commanders plan to issue a strong warning message to North Korea in a rare joint press availability here later Tuesday, officials said.

Pacific Command chief Adm. Harry Harris, Strategic Command head Gen. John Hyten and Missile Defense Agency Director Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves are scheduled to hold a press conference at a local U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) base.

It's quite unusual for the U.S. commanding generals serving abroad to gather in South Korea and release public statements together.

It apparently reflects Washington's alertness against North Korea's rapid development of nuclear bombs and missiles.

In July, the North successfully test-launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

The U.S. intelligence community also believes the secretive communist nation has made significant progress in miniaturizing nuclear warheads.

One way or another, with all the US Coalition pieces in place for such a situation to happen, I would suspect that Kim Jung Un will either uncork some missiles during this drill, which ends on 31 August, or that he will be made to appear to have done that, courtesy of a US false flag.

White House braces for thousands of protesters outside Phoenix rally where Trump could PARDON famed 'tent city' sheriff Joe Arpaio

Thousands of protesters could descend on Downtown Phoenix tomorrow as President Donald Trump makes his first visit to Arizona since winning the White House.

A combined 5,600 people have said they plan to attend, judging from RSVPs on two Facebook advertisements for anti-Trump rallies.

One features a logo incorporating the number '45' – Trump is the 45th US. president – in a mockup of the Nazi swastika. The other includes a graphic of Trump with Ku Klux Klansmen, and is advertised under the title 'White Supremacy Will Not Be Pardoned.'

That's a reference to reports that Trump may issue a presidential pardon on Tuesday night to former sheriff Joe Arpaio.

'If protesters come, they come,' a White House official told on Sunday. 'The president isn't going to change who he is or what he's doing because of loud and obnoxious people who are never going to like him no matter what.'

I just hope his security detail has their eyes and ears wide open; the political ugliness in this country has reached a fevered pitch, and may translate into some truly rancid behaviour here.

Can Low Doses of Chemicals Affect Your Health? A New Report Weighs the Evidence

By: ActivistPost

By Rachel Shaffer, University of Washington

Toxicology’s founding father, Paracelsus, is famous for proclaiming that “the dose makes the poison.” This phrase represents a pillar of traditional toxicology: Essentially, chemicals are harmful only at high enough doses.

But increasing evidence suggests that even low levels of “endocrine disrupting chemicals” can interfere with hormonal signals in the body in potentially harmful ways...

38 out of 60 shampoos found to contain harmful manufacturing solvent in tests by Hong Kong consumer watchdog

The Consumer Council also found 20 per cent of the shampoos contained allergy-causing preservatives, and one even tested positive for a heavy metal.
But the agency insisted none of the samples constituted an “immediate” health risk, and only urged those with sensitive skin to be extra cautious when making their choices.

A total of 60 shampoos available in Hong Kong were collected for examination. Most were general shampoos not targeting specific hair problems or types, but some claimed to alleviate hair loss.

Revealing the test results at their monthly briefing on Tuesday, the council said 38 contained 1,4-dioxane, an ether commonly used as a solvent in manufacturing.

While the concentrations of 1,4-dioxane in the samples all fell within mainland China’s limit of 30 parts per million, seven shampoos exceeded the European Union’s ceiling of 10 ppm.

They included products by Head and Shoulders, Clairol, Pantene and Vidal Sassoon.

I have found that going as organic as I can, with grooming products and cosmetics, keeps me out of trouble with chemical sensitivities.

I am violently sensitive to what are called "formaldehyde precursors", and they are very present in low-end soaps, shampoos, skin care, and cosmetic products. They are called by many different names, to mask their presence, because people are getting more savvy about what they put on their skin and hair.

For me, the symptoms were horrific pains in my hands and feet, for which, of course, no
ex-ray could find the source, because the cause was chemical, not mechanical.

PayPal Bans Conservative Sites After Soros-Funded Group Attacks Them

By: malterwitty

PayPal banned Jihad Watch and the American Freedom Defense Initiative from receiving online donations using their platform because of the site’s “activities” after being designated as “hate sites” by left-wing groups.

Jihad Watch was reportedly banned from PayPal on Saturday after ProPublica – a George Soros funded investigative group – targeted the site and its director Robert Spencer (not to be confused with white nationalist Richard Spencer) in a hit piece that claimed the site was guilty of “extreme hostility toward Muslims.”

The TSA is winning the war on Americans minds as commuters are being tricked into giving away their rights without a fight.

The above video warns that facial recognition body scanners are coming to a train station near you…

“Soon you might have to pass through one of these to get to your train or subway.”

Last week, the TSA Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority ‘voluntarily’ asked commuters to walk through facial recognition body scanners before being allowed to board a train

If you watched the video you might have noticed that the mass media (CBS) did not interview a single person who was concerned about their privacy. Instead, they quoted passengers who think body scanners are a good thing.

Nothing suspicious about that, right?

CBS warned that if the LA Metro installs the body scanners next year, commuters won’t be able to opt-out.

I am a Christian pacifist activist, which means I am constantly exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical differences through hard-won, logical negotiations. I am not a violent human being, nor do I ever advocate violence.

That being said, when we get back to the mainland, we will only be driving an older car which cannot be tracked by GPS, and will adopt a Cuban mechanic to keep it running!!!

The massive invasions of privacy by the Federal Government have run amok, and I will gently, peacefully refuse any more horrific intrusions in our private life.

More EU food contamination scare: Now CHICKENS found containing fipronil

By: malterwitty

Fipronil is used to treat fleas and ticks in pets as well as in crop protection, but Brussels has banned its use in animal farming. It is harmful to people in high doses, especially to the kidneys and liver.

Eggs from chickens were recently found to contain fipronil which were distributed to 15 European Union (EU) countries as well as Switzerland, South Korea and Hong Kong.

Farms were shut down in Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands after the spread of eggs contaminated by fipronil.

21st Century: ID Politics Vs. The People

In the first hour we’ll be joined by artist and the brilliant and controversial best-selling author and internationally acclaimed jazz artist, Gilad Atzmon, to discuss Charlottesville and the problem of Left vs Right identity politics in the West, as well its roots in Jewish ID politics, and how society might be able overcome the downward spiral it currently finds itself in. In the second hour we’re joined by author and analyst, Jay Dyer, from to talk about America’s new culture wars and why Leftist activists are now pulling down statues across the country and how this might accelerate to more censorship and ceremonial ‘book burning’ activities.


The mystery continues regarding the whereabouts of Venezuelan Attorney General, Luisa Ortega Díaz, who fled her country after suffering threats and persecution by the regime of Nicolás Maduro. She is alleged to be applying for asylum in the United States.

Former Colombian president Andres Pastrana said Sunday, August 20, that “most assuredly” Luisa Ortega, who arrived in Bogota on Friday, will “end up in the United States.”

Pastrana said Ortega will be seeking political asylum in the United States, where, according to him, she will reveal important information about criminal activities in the Maduro regime.

“I think it is difficult for the attorney general to stay in Colombia…she is going to end up in the United States because she will be fundamental to exposing the ‘narcodictadura’ of president Maduro,” he said.

No, No, No, Venezuelan Attorney General Diaz; the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America are the last places on this planet you want to go: the governmental, institutional narcocracy here will be thoroughly displeased by your presence, and your life will be very much in peril, particularly if you are talking about drug corruption's influence in politics.

Think about it: Hillary Clinton was so comfortable with the narcocracy which supported her and Bill Clinton, that she did not object to her picture being taken with convicted drug felon, Jorge Cabreras, at a White House Christmas party.

Jefferson Memorial Will Be Changed to Acknowledge Slavery Record

In response to accusations that the propellent was unstable, the Navy decided on a demonstration, and built a "drop test" rig. This was a simulated 16 inch gun barrel, with a ram at the base, that was dropped onto a concrete block to simulate over-ramming. The intention was to drop test the configuration again and again until it was evident that the propellent inside was safe from accidental detonation from over-ramming. Exactly the opposite was proven. On being dropped, the device detonated. The Navy then destroyed the remainder of the Iowa's propellent store and established new rules for the storing of propellent.

Despite this and other facts, the Navy's official report, issued on Thursday, September 7, 1989, concluded that the disaster was caused by a "wrongful intentional act ... most probably committed" by Clay Hartwig.

Even now, Navy personnel are trying to counter the embarrassing incident with the USS John S. McCain with wild accusations of Chinese/Russian/Iranian/North Korean hackers interfering with the ship's GPS system. They are hoping that the general public forgets that ships underway at seas HAVE LOOKOUTS WATCHING FOR NEARBY SHIPS!

I have spent a good amount of time with a deck under my feet. I have even had the helm on multiple occasions of the replica of the HMS Bounty from the Mel Gibson version of Mutiny on the Bounty! I have even (technically) committed an act of mutiny myself by taking control of a sailing craft from its owner before the aforesaid idiot killed us all!

So, I speak from experience.

This was NOT a hacking attack.

This was NOT a GPS spoof.

This was a command crew of liberal politically-correct snowflakes who don't know what the fuck they are doing, wrecking expensive ship and killing people.

The Taliban warned the U.S. that they would make Afghanistan a "graveyard for the American empire" after President Donald Trump's announcement that he would commit more troops to the country.

The radical Islamist group, who are waging a bloody insurgency against the Afghan government and its security forces, said they would continue "jihad" until all U.S. troops were removed from Afghan soil.

"If the U.S. does not pull all its forces out of Afghanistan, we will make this country the 21st-century graveyard for the American empire," the Taliban's spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said in a statement.

Stock & Bond Markets in Denial about QE Unwind, but Banks, Treasury Dept Get Antsy

By: alexmark

“Let markets clear.” It’ll be just “a financial engineering shock.”


This evening Trump will announce a new "path forward" in the occupation of Afghanistan. According to the usual leaks it will be very same path the U.S. has taken for 16 years.

Several thousands soldiers from the U.S. and various NATO countries will (in vane) train the Afghan army. Special Forces and CIA goons will raid this or that family compound on someone's say-so. Bombs will be dropped on whatever is considered a target.

Trump will announce that 1,000 or so troops will be added to the current contingent. About 15,000 foreign troops will be in Afghanistan. About three contractors per each soldier will be additionally deployed.

Trump knows that this "path forward" is nonsense that leads nowhere, that the best option for all foreign troops in Afghanistan is to simply leave:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump - 21 Nov 2013
We have wasted an enormous amount of blood and treasure in Afghanistan. Their government has zero appreciation. Let's get out!

I am deeply disappointed in President Trump's decision here.

He knows better; he understands that this new "surge" will be absolutely no different than all the surges before this in the last 16 years.

And in this decision, he has failed the American people in a spectacular fashion, and has guaranteed much more blood and money will be lost.

His military advisors, that unholy trinity of Mc Masters, Mattis, and Kelly, have betrayed him, in the name of "optics"; in their dystopian view, that another US war cannot be viewed as "lost" is more important than doing the right thing for the American people, which would be to withdraw US and NATO troops as quickly as safely possible, then negotiatewith whatever government is left standing in Kabul for the oil pipeline and mineral rights.

That Sec Def Mattis signed off on this just puzzles me intensely; I know that this man is absolutely lionized by every military person who has served under his command, but to tell the President that this is his only, highest and best, option in Afghanistan?!?

Something is just not right with this.
