Sheriff Israel Calls for “More Power” to Snatch Up Citizens for Online Comments

by Scott Creighton

What have I been saying all along about “common sense gun control”? The following is from CNS News:

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel on Thursday called for more first responders, more mental health treatment, and more power for police to involuntarily commit people who raise what he called “red flags.”

“The Baker Act in Florida allows law enforcement or medical professionals to confine a person involuntarily…but you have to have a reason, you have to be able to articulate that they’re a threat to themselves or a threat to someone else.

So what I’m asking our lawmakers to do is go back to places like Tallahassee or places like Washington, D.C. — give police the power — if they see something on social media, if they see graphic pictures of rifles and blood and gore and guns and bombs —  if they see something with horrific language — if they see a person talking about, I want to grow up to be a serial killer — we  need to have the power to take that person and bring them before mental health professionals at that particular time, involuntarily, and have them examined.

People are going to be rightfully so concerned about their rights, as am I. But what about the rights of these students? What about the rights of young kids who go to school with book bags and pencils, don’t they have the right to be protected by the United States government to the best of our ability? And that’s what we’ll be doing.”

Sheriff Israel said it’s important for people to say something if they see something or even if there’s “something in your gut.”

“If you know anybody right now, if you know anybody — you say, you  know what, this raises a red flag, I was thinking of calling (you). Don’t think about calling us, call us! Call the FBI, call the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, call the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Please don’t remain silent. Please let us know about it.”

Later, Sheriff Israel said there’s nothing law enforcement can do if someone legally owns a gun. “But we can certainly follow up,” he said.

“We can certainly go to visit him, whether he legally owns a gun or not, if we think that red flag goes up and that there’s something not right and we think that this person has a propensity to do such a horrific act, I think police all over this nation need to be empowered to take that person…and deliver him or her to a medical facility where they can be examined.”

Right now we live in a time where the MSM calls you “crazy” if you don’t believe Russia hacked our election. I just got a community guidelines strike and video removed for “bullying” because I dared ask questions about a video from this event. And of course, online trolls are resorting, once again, to their usual tactics:

Emboldened by Robert Parry’s Death, War-mongering Liar Eliot Higgins (Bellingcat) Crawls Out of the Ooze With More Chemical Weapons Propaganda

by Scott Creighton

Recently the widely discredited pro-war, anti-Russian, anti-Iranian, anti-Syrian, anti-self respect, Atlantic Council-backed blogger Eliot Higgins (“Brown Moses” and Bellingcat) popped his ugly head back up out of the weeds where the liar has been laying low since his last public smack down by Robert Parry a year or so ago. And once again, he’s doing his best to pay the bills by making up more unsubstantiated propaganda about whatever enemy the Atlantic Council happens to be demonizing at the moment. In this case it’s Iran and Syria. And in this case I guess he is somewhat reassured his lies might go undiscovered due to the recent untimely death of Mr. Parry (but my guess is… that just ain’t so)

“Bild worked with the research of the human rights group, Syrians for Truth and Justice, and the online investigative journalist website Bellingcat to expose the shocking evidence of “Made in Germany” technology used in alleged Syrian and Iranian regime war crimes. Eliot Higgins, from Bellingcat, told Bild both gas attacks showed that “the rockets were produced in 2016 and delivered from Iran.” Fox News, Feb. 8,2018

In this case Eliot, a Brit (like the guy who made up the “White Helmets” hearts and minds campaign out of al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists and like all the ISIS spokespeople and many of their terrorist kidnappers (remember The Beatles?)) has teamed up with someone from Syrians for Truth and Justice (backed by the European Endowment for Democracy (a Russia-hating, “pro-democracy” color revolution inciting organization that doesn’t think Germany gives them enough money for their “work”)) to scribble the latest of his bullshit junk “science” to blame Iran and Syria for the latest chemical weapons attacks.

Apparently, before cobbling together is latest BS “evidence” payday,  Higgins didn’t get the memo about Sec. of Defense Mattis on Feb. 2nd saying he’s seen no evidence that the Syrian government was behind this latest attack. Talk about getting blind-sided huh? Robert’s gone and the damn Secretary of Defense steps right in. Must suck to be Eliot today.

Market Crashes to “Correct” Trump’s Memo Wrongthink – The Real Deep State Flexes It’s Muscle

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Oh look. This morning they are saying it’s… a correction

“Stock market analysts believe the stock market is long overdue for a 5% pullback or even a 10% correction.” CNN Money

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) closed today down 1,175 points after rallying back from being down 1,600 points.

This is the biggest single day loss in history but it gets worse. On Friday the DOW dropped 666 points as a kind of a precursor to today. That’s a loss of 1,841 points in two business days. That’s a lot.

Especially when you consider the previous worse day was in Sept. of 2008 when the DOW flash-crashed 777 points because congress dared to do what the American people wanted them to do… deny giving Wall Street their first of many bailouts for crashing our economy.

“Monday’s sell-off surpassed a 777.68 points drop on the Dow Jones on 29 September 2008 when Congress rebuffed a $700bn bank bailout plan following the collapse of US investment bank Lehman Brothers earlier that month.” BBC

666? 777? Seem a little like a coincidence to anyone else?

There are a couple things going on right now which might explain this development.

Hawaiian Panic Was Caused by a Drill… the Aegis Ashore Drill… Just Like I thought

by Scott Creighton

So it wasn’t a guy hitting the wrong button, wasn’t a mistake on a keyboard like we were told.

As I have speculated, they were running a drill regarding an incoming missile… likely it was the drill they were running to show that Japanese military official what Aegis Ashore could do in the event of a missile attack… and THAT is what caused the scare.

It took nearly 40 minutes for the agency to figure out a way to retract the false alert on the same platforms it was sent to. People on the islands were sent into panic, many believing they had minutes left to contact loved ones and most without any sense of where to shelter from a possible nuclear strike.

The worker, a man in his 50s, spoke to reporters on the condition that he not be identified because he has received threats. He said an on-duty call that came in on 13 January did not sound like a drill. State officials have said other workers clearly heard the word “exercise” repeated several times.

Immediately afterward, we find out it was a drill and I was devastated,” the man said. “I still feel very badly about it. I felt sick afterward. It was like a body blow.” Guardian

So they made some poor slob the scapegoat and fired him while Lockheed Martin is still trying to sell their useless system to the Japanese. They did a live fire test this past week to show them how Aegis Ashore can protect them from all those incoming North Korean rockets they are worried about. The test failed. Just like it failed back in June of 2017.

Someone tell that father he can get his kid out of the sewer now. They fired some guy so it’s safe I guess.

Aegis Ashore Missile Test Fails Again: Looks Like Hawaiian Scare Drill Was for Naught

by Scott Creighton

A couple of weeks ago I reported on the Hawaiian missile scare that sent fathers out into the streets to lower their kids down to the relative safety of the resort island’s sewer systems (“It“, “C.H.U.D.” and “Flukey the Fluke-worm” not withstanding)

It was my hypothesis that the “accident” was caused by a test of the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense System being run for the benefit of a certain Japanese high ranking military official who was here at the time of the “accident” evaluating that system for potential purchase by the Japanese government. Since it was a hard sell to the people of that country (they kind of balk at the thought of building up a huge military after that whole “Hirosima and Nagasaki” thing you know) our paid-off puppets in their military had to come over here and watch a demonstration of the product in order to go home and give it his per-ordained seal of approval.

I guess everything went okay with the test except for the couple hundred thousand Hawaiian folks who stained their shorts and that one little girl who was most likely torn to pieces by competing interests in the sewer tunnels that day. Hope she put up a good fight.

But the way the Pentagon looks at it, she was merely collateral damage… “greater good” and all that, don’t ya know. “National security”… “freedom and democracy”… she had to be dumped in the sewer “over there so little white girls aren’t dumped in the sewer over here”… pick your marketing cliches as you will.

The Aegis Ashore deal is worth about 2 billion dollars and since our military is run by contractors like Lockheed Martin these days, it made sense to me to take them at their word. I mean, after the Global Banking Cabal and our Big Energy/Oil Cartel, they are our most important “national interest” are they not?

Tokyo “hoped to confirm the system’s performance” so “Lockheed said it plans to conduct missile engagement simulations and live tracking demonstration in the first half of 2018.”

So yes, Lockheed announced plans to run a simulation on behalf of the buyer and then do a live tracking demonstration to show their client-state client just how wonderful this system is in terms of knocking down those dreaded North Korean missiles we’ve all heard so much about this past year (since the new leadership in South Korea didn’t want THAAD and had to be convinced he did)

And guess what? Here we are in the “first half of 2018” and Lockheed Martin (the public/private entity formerly known as the “U.S. military”) made good on their promise. Unfortunately, you can’t say the same for Aegis Ashore:

A live-fire missile defense test conducted early Wednesday in Hawaii was unsuccessful, Pentagon officials acknowledged Thursday.

It did not meet our objectives,” said Dana White, a Pentagon spokeswoman…

The Missile Defense Agency and U.S. Navy sailors manning the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Test Complex conducted a live-fire missile flight test using a Standard-Missile 3 Block IIA missile launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Kauai, Hawaii, Wednesday morning,” Wright said.

Citing unidentified Pentagon sources, CNN reported the status of the test had not been announced in part because of the “sensitivities surrounding North Korea’s participation in the upcoming Olympic games and continuing tensions with leader Kim Jong Un.” Stars and Stripes

I wonder what they mean by “it didn’t meet our objectives”

I hope Malaysia Airlines still has all of their planes accounted for. Hate to have CNN spend another 6 months pushing another set of lies like they did to cover-up Flight MH370. 😉

An everyman Reviews Joe’s Democratic Response and Asks “Have You Eyes?”

by Scott Creighton

“Congressman Kennedy is a relentless fighter for working Americans,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. “While President Trump has consistently broken his promises to the middle class, Congressman Kennedy profoundly understands the challenges facing hard-working men and women across the country.”

How deeply he understands those concerns is unclear. Kennedy is a Stanford and Harvard Law grad whose net worth is $42.3 million, according to an analysis of financial disclosure forms. That includes a $5 million trust fund. Newsweek

Staged in an empty auto mechanics school, symbolic in it’s own right,
with a few greasers in attendance for effect like the Ford product placement carefully elevated behind him,
Joe speaks to his hand-picked gathering of elites in the empty platitudes of the moment.
With the conventional wisdom of the establishment’s catch phrases, Joe preached to the choir his sermon of identity politics.
Pausing periodically for effect,
Joe dropped his voice to a whisper at times in a bad actor’s desperate attempt to affect an emotional connection
Where clearly there was none.

As his coming out party proceeded, his introduction as the anointed one from the pretenders of the left,
Joe was too self conscience to wipe the drool from the edges of his mouth, the moment was too big for him for improvisation.
Too much at stake.
His acting coach had not prepared Joe for that potential problem,
So he pressed onward, hitting his power words, pretending he was almost about to cry, several times during his sophomoric performance.
Joe of the 5 million dollar trust fund
Feels your pain.

The Syrian National Dialogue Congress starts today

by Scott Creighton

As is the case on the Korean peninsula, the threat of peace is breaking out in the Middle East and we, once again, seem committed to stopping it one way or the other.

The Syrian National Dialogue Congress starts today and will run through the 30th of this month. It is a collection of parties from within Syria and a few invited guests getting together to hopefully lay the foundation for a peaceful political resolution to the crisis in their nation.

1,600 participants from a wide range of government and opposition parties have arrived in Sochi, Russia for the event.

The ultimate stated goal of the congress is the laying of the groundwork for a new, inclusive constitution. No one expects peace will be achieved at the meeting because, as many have pointed out, several of the participants are still taking their orders from Washington, London and Tel Aviv.

It should be noted, as this meeting takes place, Turkey’s President Erdogan is continuing his Operation Olive Branch in Afrin and now Manbij and is saying he and Turkey will not stop until “the games” being played on his border are defeated.

Looks like he is promising to continue his resistance to the Greater Kurdistan project which will certainly add a little incentive to the participants of the congress.

Below are a couple of highlights in terms of links to various news reports concerning the meeting and below that will be a link to a live stream of the meeting.
