various small current events, including some victories of common sense

Putin suggests that the USA could actually use its legal treaties instead of endlessly pumping smoke and mirrors.

Putin mentioned Browder’s campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton.

Jack Burkman, a Washington D.C. attorney and lobbyist, has been investigating the Seth Rich murder case for most of the past 2 years.

Burkman now claims to have found a credible witness that is willing to identify the 2 killers of Seth Rich.

What is jury nullification?

Georgia jury nullifies law:

Nightwind identifies astroturfing:

Police in New Jersey have officially crossed the [thin blue] line and literally attempted to confiscate guns from an army veteran without a warrant. But it didn’t go as planned, because Leonard Cottrell Jr. refused to comply with the orders of the cops.

The Deep State also wants Trump to get the Russians to do something about Iran. Do not be surprised if Vladimir Putin takes time to explain to Donald that Iran’s rise in the Middle East is not because of Russian support. Nope. It is a direct consequence of the U.S. 2003 invasion of Iraq.

How about future cooperation? The Russians already are playing Lyft driver for U.S. astronauts as they ferrying us to and from the Space Station. On the nuclear front, Putin withdrew in 2016 from a treaty, on the disposal of plutonium, in anger over the U.S. breaking of its promise to not grow NATO and increase military exercises on Russias border. Putin does not have alzheimer’s. He is not going to back off on this point.

At the core of the U.S. mythology about Russia is the lingering resentment of how the Soviets treated Jews in the former Soviet Union and our self-delusion that we, the United States, defeated the Nazis.

Jul 16, 2018 – Illegal Immigration Replaced Slave Labor

In past blog posts, I explained how illegal immigration is a form of slave labor. It seems powerful people explained this to former President George W. Bush, but didn’t tell him not to repeat it in public and that Americans no longer pick cotton by hand. As a result, Bush said this during a speech earlier this year:

“There are people willing to do jobs that Americans won’t do. Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that. We ought to say thank you and welcome them.”

Bush failed to note that millionaires pay only $10 an hour with no benefits for these tough jobs, yet most field workers are US citizens or green card holders. Illegals are hired to hold down wages and deter unions and strikes. If they would pay $20 an hour, plenty of Americans would show up to work. Most Americans don’t know that millions of white Americans once picked cotton by hand, and picked more than Blacks or Mexicans.

Jul 15, 2018 – Real Organized Crime

Corporate television teaches us that organized crime are local rackets run by Italians. In reality, the world’s most powerful people routinely colluded to profit from illegal activities. For example, in 1967 Israel invaded and occupied Syria’s Golan Heights. Most of the native people fled or were expelled and Israelis moved in. In 1981, Israel officially annexed the Golan Heights over the objection of the UN and USA, and no nation recognizes this land grab.

For the past several years, lots of oil has been stolen by Genie Oil from under the Golan Heights with no compensation or royalties paid to Syria. And remember that Israel had plans to seize another 25 miles (40km) of southern Syria as a security zone until Russia thwarted that idea. (see my Jan. 29, 2018 blog post) Have a peek at who is paid to overcome political objections and keep this news out of the UN and our corporate media:

Many consumer groups and labor activists complain about Amazon’s lack of ethics.

Amazon had major technical difficulties running a big sale, but a workaround was found:


A new, startling report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) warns that positive employment trends are at risk of being derailed by “unprecedented wage stagnation” affecting low-paid workers.

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights based in Costa Rica is a multinational independent judicial body which handles court cases relating to the human rights of individuals in or effected by the laws of the members states of the Organization of American States (OAS). At present the OAS is comprised of every North American, Central American and South American nation, although Venezuela has expressed a desire to withdraw from the body.

Today, the Court ruled that it is the duty of nations to allow for the passage of successful asylum seekers from embassies to the mainland territory of the state that has granted an individual asylum. For Julian Assange, this would mean that according to the Court’s decision, Britain has a legal obligation to allow Julian Assange to exit the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in peace and allow for his safe transit to an airport from which he would be able to fly to Ecuador, the country that has granted Assange asylum and where he now also holds formal citizenship.

Alain E. Kaloyeros, a principal architect of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s signature economic development initiative, was convicted on Thursday in a bid-rigging scheme that steered hundreds of millions of dollars in state contracts to favored companies in Buffalo and Syracuse.

Dr. Kaloyeros, 62, was found guilty of wire fraud and conspiracy in the fourth week of a federal trial in Manhattan that invited harsh scrutiny of Mr. Cuomo’s ambitious plan to revitalize upstate and western New York, known as the Buffalo Billion.
