Gawronski War Information
In the final days of Barack Obama’s presidency, the warmongers in Washington, DC are hell-bent on causing as much chaos as possible. If they don’t manage to start a war with Russia before Donald Trump is sworn in, it won’t be for lack of trying.
Gee, how did CNN, Fox, The NY Times, and all the other fake news completely miss this one? Maybe they don’t want the Christians in America to learn about the atrocities perpetrated against Palestinians by Israel? Most Reverand Bishop Oscar Cantu, Chairman of The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on International Justice and Peace, recently sent a following letter to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry regarding the situation in Israel and Palestine. In it, the bishop notes that Palestinian homes are destroyed, confiscated, and the Israelis even encroach on Christian monestaries and convents!
One of the ridiculous parts of all of the discussions around « cybersecurity » concerns what should be considered « critical infrastructure. » That’s because, thanks to various executive orders, what the President declares as « critical infrastructure » leads to different cybersecurity requirements. There have been concerns that this will result in broadly classifying the internet as « critical infrastructure » in a manner that will lead to easier surveillance. But, as we noted nearly a decade ago, broadly classifying the internet as critical infrastructure would be silly, when the use of that designation should be narrowly focused on things like voting and banking (not to mention things like energy grids and water supplies).
Computers can be hacked; this is why we need to go back to the plain, simple paper ballots.And as to the claims that Russia allegedly « hacked the 2016 elections »; this is just one big, fat, hairy bunch of codswallop.
And as to the FBI and DHS reports on the alleged « Russian hacking » of elections:
FBI, DHS RUSSIA REPORT BEGINS WITH GIANT DISCLAIMER ‘PROVIDING NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND’
Putin is just biding his time until Trump is inaugurated; at that point, I would almost be willing to bet that relations between Russia and the US are going to warm dramatically.
On December 31, 2011, New Year’s Eve, President Barack Obama signed into law the most constitutionally damaging law in American history, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.
This New Year’s Eve we note its 5th Anniversary. Previous annual appropriations bills funding national defense were mostly procedural but it was the addition of two sections, buried deep within the over 600 page document, that potentially gutted the Bill of Rights for American citizens thought by the President to be assisting the enemy, that so upset constitutionalists and libertarians.
December 30th marks the date that the Investigatory Powers Act, also known as the ‘Snooper’s Charter’ officially comes into force, allowing the government to collect data on anyone.
The government says that the new laws will primarily be used to combat serious crimes such as terrorism, but campaigners have warned that it could lead to innocent people being convicted of offences they didn’t commit.
The new legislation, described as « world-leading » by home secretary Amber Rudd, will primarily be used to carry out bulk email surveillance, as authorities look to monitor communications between suspects.
However it could also be used to monitor other personal information, including phone records and web browsing history, with web and phone companies required to store this information for 12 months.
The companies would also need to be able to provide police, security services and official agencies with access to this data whenever required.
The UK played an important role in brokering the United Nations resolution condemning Israel for its policy of building illegal settlements on the occupied Palestinian territory, it has been confirmed.
The government of Prime Minister Theresa May helped with drafts of the resolution with Egypt and the Palestinians in a bid to ensure that it met with the concerns of outgoing US President Barack Obama, according to a report by The Guardian.
In particular, Britain is thought to have played a key role in mediating between the Palestinians and the Obama administration to ensure the text met the concerns of both sides, the report said.
The Foreign Office has not denied it had been involved in the drafting process and said that the UK, as one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, “engaged with” the text “as we do with all Security Council texts”.
Turkey’s leader is accusing Washington and its allies of supporting terrorist groups in Syria. As US State Dept responds, Ahmed Beirat Conkar.
While the world has been transfixed on the epic tragedy in Syria, another tragedy – a hidden one – has been consuming the children of Yemen.
Battered by the twin evils of war and hunger, every 10 minutes a child in Yemen dies from malnutrition, diarrhea, or respiratory-tract infections, UNICEF reports. And without immediate medical attention, over 400,000 kids suffering from severe acute malnutrition could die, too.
Why are so many of Yemen’s children going hungry and dying?
Since 2014, Yemen has been wracked by a civil war – a war that’s been exacerbated by intervention from Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally. Since 2015, the Saudis have been pounding this nation, the poorest in the Middle East, with cluster bombs and explosives.
And the US has been helping, selling the Saudis advanced weapons and providing intelligence and logistical support.
I didn’t think, when I was a kid growing up, that I would ever consider the government of USA complicit in war crimes; unfortunately, it is a well-documented reality right now. And the following images demonstrate, very clearly, what daily life is like in Yemen these days: (warning: very graphic)
The latest eruption of violence in Xinjiang, which authorities say claimed five lives, comes just months after Chen Quanguo stepped into the role as Communist Party chief for the troubled region.
Chen earned a reputation as a hardliner in his previous job overseeing Tibet, and although there is no indication the attack is linked with the new administration, observers warn the region could face greater uncertainties under the policies that Chen adopts.
Karakax’s population is 97 per cent made up of Uygurs, a mostly Muslim ethnic minority who, like some Tibetans, chafe at Beijing’s rule and the increasing numbers of Han Chinese moving to their homelands.
Shortly after Chen’s arrival, the government started to beef up its police presence significantly, building more than 900 police booths in the region’s capital Urumqi. Local residents have also been required to hand over their passports to police.
I am saddened by the deaths and woundings of innocents here; that being said, however,I would strongly suggest that more massive suppression here will most likely wind up creating even more unrest.
The late President Kennedy said it best: « When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable. »
There was an article, posted on HuffPo in 2014, which sheds some light on what is happening here:
Until recently, Xinjiang’s population was mostly Uighur. But in recent years, Chinese Han have moved there in increasing numbers, drawn by Beijing’s massive investments in the area. Both groups now make up about 40 percent of the region’s population. In Urumqi, the state capital, Han Chinese now make up 75 percent of residents.
Uighurs complain that while Beijing has heavily invested in Xinjiang, the investment mostly benefits the Han Chinese
Uighurs feel discriminated against when it comes to housing and employment. They don’t have easy access to the region’s profitable gas and oil industry, and can’t apply for many of the available government jobs. The separatist struggle heated up in 2009, when clashes between Uighurs and Chinese Han in Urumqi claimed dozens of lives. As China dramatically escalated its crackdown in the wake of the riots, the separatists’ actions became increasingly brutal, setting in motion a vicious cycle of violence.
If these issues are not intelligently and sensitively addressed by Beijing, we may well be looking at a powderkeg which will continue to explode, episodically, and infused with the horrific energy of the most extreme, bloodthirsty Jihad possible against the Han Chinese in Xinjiang.
Israel’s attorney-general has ordered police to open a criminal investigation into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The Israeli government and some U.S. politicians are attacking the Obama administration for permitting a recent U.N. Security Council resolution that condemns Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. Secretary of State John Kerry faced further ire on Wednesday after saying the settlements threaten prospects for peace in the region.
Yet part of the reason the administration decided to speak out forcefully about the settlements is because they are such a key feature of Israel’s occupation ? now approaching its 50th year. The occupation affects almost every aspect of Palestinians’ lives in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem
Just a few images of what being Palestinian looks like, under Israeli occupation, from around the web: and I warn you: some of these are brutally graphic.
Israeli soldiers beating Palestinian children and killing a boy – Facebook
I could go on, as there is no shortage of images of, and stories about, this kind of butchery.
But in looking, reading, and listening, it is apparent that the Israeli government and military have groomed their soldiers to believe that serial genocide of Palestinian children is a perfectly normal part of their job.
More than 1,000 families – mostly from the Middle East and North Africa, but also from Balkan countries – had since reported their infants being systematically taken from Israeli hospitals, and put up for adoption. The claims never stood up, and the latest effort to investigate the Yemenite Children Affair in 2001 concluded that the children had either died or been buried with the hospital authorities failing to notify the parents.
Authorities in Russia believe that Hillary Clinton was directly involved in orchestrating the assassination of Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he will not expel US diplomats in revenge for hacking sanctions imposed by White House officials.
The country’s foreign minster had threatened to evict officials in retaliation against the White House’s decision to banish 35 Russian diplomats from the US – but Putin stepped in to say he would not engage in tit-for-tat politics.
The shock move did not stop the ministry’s spokesman from slamming the Barack Obama administration, who didn’t hold back as she called them a ‘group of foreign policy losers, angry and shallow-brained’.
A SIGNIFICANT PART OF US HERE, BUT THERE ARE WEAPONS AND PROJECTS OF BULGARIA, ROMANIA, SLOVAKIA …
In Aleppo – as might be expected – after terrorists remained a huge store of weapons and ammunition.
It is not a surprise.
And in fact: it is not a surprise as not to weapons and ammunition by terrorists and insurgents get from the United States and Europe, including Bulgaria, Romania and Slovakia.
Significant of all the matched and is manufactured in the United States.
A scheme of the Americans and their European satellites provide weapons, the rich Islamic countries of the Persian Gulf provide money for him, and Syria is inserted from the territory of Turkey.
The photographs and video footage can be seen bullets caliber 14.5 and 12.7 mm, the Slovak mine from 122mm missile for recoilless weapons, mines manufactured in the US, Romanian grenade launchers AG-7 ..
