Red Cross Denied Entry into Trump Child Detention Facilities
Just to reiterate the crux of the Red Cross tweet:
“We have offered assistance to federal gov’t authorities, but without permission, we can’t access facilities.”
This is eerily reminiscent of Nazi concentration camps during the Holocaust. The Red Cross was repeatedly forbidden from touring concentration camps during World War II. Finally, in 1944, they were allowed to inspect the hoax camp, Theresienstadt. Just prior to the visit from the Red Cross, Theresienstadt was emptied of most of its prisoners, and was renovated so as to appear humane.
White House preacher heavily influenced Trump’s decision to tear families apart
As reported by Andrew L. Seidel, the day prior to Sessions using the bible to defend Trump’s cruel child kidnapping crusade, preacher Drollinger’s bible lesson centered around “The Importance of Parenting and the Course of the Nation,” beginning with need to force “obedience to a nation’s laws” with the same cruel abuse as a good god-fearing parent. The lesson included scriptural citations of Proverbs 28:4 and Romans 13:32 – the latter being the passage Sessions used to justify the tearing children from their parents. In fact, it is almost certain that Sessions jotted down some notes from Drollinger’s lesson verbatim because as the White House preacher has often boasted:
“Jeff Sessions [will] go out the same day I teach him something and he’ll do it on camera. And I just think, man, these guys are faithful, available, and teachable.”
Obviously, because he has no expertise in anything of value to the people or the government, preacher Drollinger considers that his job does not entail advising or influencing Trump’s policies, it is manipulating them; and no members of Trump’s cabal are more easily manipulated thanSessions and aspiring preacher Mike Pence.
According to documents in the FOIA request, Drollinger provided the Trump cabal with the exact rationale supporting separating families using the same theological arguments “espoused in his previous Bible study entitled “What the Bible Says About Our Illegal Immigration Problem.” When Sessions was railed on for using the Christian bible to justify ripping families apart, Drollinger rushed to his defense with bible in hand. Drollinger defended Sessions with a “theological explanation of the child separation policy” from 2016 on the Capitol Ministries homepage. The “follower of Jesus” explained that there is “zero tolerance” for anything untoward or illegal in Trump’s America and losing ones children is an apropos price to pay for lawbreakers. Drollnger said:
“It follows that when someone breaks the law of the land that they should anticipate that one of the consequences of their illegal behavior will be separation from their children.”
“Stewart’s neo-Confederate sympathies and his support for white supremacists, including those behind the ‘Unite the Right’ rally, apparently aren’t disqualifying,” Princeton history professor Kevin Kruse said in an email. “Stewart is—perhaps with the exception of Trump himself—the highest level nominee with such views.”
The racist rot of the Republican Party is not a new phenomenon. Steve King has been a GOP congressman for 15 years, and on Tuesday he promoted an actual neo-Nazi on Twitter. King’s office told me that they had no comment on the tweet, which is still up on King’s Twitter page as of this writing.
So far, no Republican Congressional leaders have condemned King for his tweet. And the last time he made statements about immigration and white birth rates, he told the Hill that his colleagues were “patting me on the back” for the comments. It’s a claim that’s become less outlandish with time.
SOME SIMPLE FACTS YOU ARE NOT BEING TOLD
1. Seeking asylum in the US is not a crime. It’s an administrative process. After the hearings, the US can always no to the application.
2. There’s absolutely no legal basis to take the children of asylum seekers from their parents.
3. People who cross the border illegally and are found not to have criminal records used to be returned to the border they crossed. Now they are being jailed for six months – at taxpayer expense – and having their children taken from them.
4. The revenues for these interments are going to the shareholders of PRIVATELY owned prisons.
5. Privately owned Prison companies like GEO and CoreCivic donated nearly $500,000 to support Trump’s election campaign and underwrite his inauguration.
6. The Trump administration has no procedure in place for reuniting children with the parents they have been taken from.
7. The government will not disclose where the children they have seized are being held. Nor will they allow Congressman or the news media to enter these facilities.
Many people are being misled by the mass media into believing that all immigrants are ‘criminals’, which is actually racist Nazi Fascism propaganda, spouted by the likes of Trump, Stephen Miller and Breitbart News, among others.
Trump is trying to ‘reframe’ the debate into punishing all immigrants because they are ‘criminals’, which is the same thing that Hitler did to Jews. They all deserved ‘punishment’ and ‘camps’. The final solution came in secret and was never disclosed by the mass media. America is just one small tiny step away from that final solution.
DOJ Takes First Steps Toward Indefinite Detention Of Families | HuffPost
The Trump administration is now fighting in court for the ability to lock up migrant children indefinitely — along with their parents.
The Department of Justice filed an emergency motion in federal court on Thursday to modify a 1997 settlement that prevents the government from detaining migrant children longer than 20 days. Ending the limitations on the length of time kids can be detained, the administration argues, is the only tenable alternative to splitting up families that are apprehended crossing the border illegally.
Although the Trump administration argues the changes it outlined on Thursday are the only way to end family separations, the filing suggests parents and kids could be split up again down the road.
LEGAL Asylum seekers are NOT CRIMINALS. America is descending into a fear and hate based racist fascism.
Trump hates and fears all immigrants. He sincerely believes that they are all criminals, so he is locking them all up, including babies and children.
The fear and hatred is so deep, that the final solution is just the next logical step.
Military bases in Texas and Arkansas will begin housing tens of thousands of migrant children caught crossing the border illegally as soon as next month, the Pentagon said Thursday.

And here’s another irony. Abbott, who thinks that climate science is crap, managed to halt the renewables roll-out for three years when prime minister.
Turnbull, who promised never to lead a party that didn’t take climate change seriously, is now attempting to impose an effective 10-year moratorium on those same technologies.

In any case, I prefer Oneness. Oneness is the claim I establish. Beloved, ten horses could not pry apart what you and I are to each other, and why would anyone try to pry Oneness apart? Nor, Beloved, could pliers possibly ply Oneness into less than Oneness. I am not called Almighty God for nothing. I bequeath Myself to you. Indeed, I AM your inheritance. In your DNA, AM I. In this sense, I have proprietary rights, which include Oneness with you free and clear.
Oneness means Oneness. We are not two factions of One God. By no means are either of us or I two halves of One God through the terrains of life. We are awakened somewhat to My Glory and therefore to the Glory of your Self, hand in hand with Mine in ordinary life and also far and beyond to the furthest extent of life while thou art in Heaven.
In the fullness of One, I burst forth in song to Amazing Oneness from the mountain tops. Be sure to know that Oneness isn’t two halves. There is nothing more to add to Oneness. The whole gang’s here.

Zara, Brand That Made Melania’s ‘Don’t Care’ Jacket Used To Design Holocaust Shirt, Swastika Bag
Zara claimed that their shirt was modeled on the star that a wild west sheriff would wear, but Marshall Dillon never wore stripes, horizontal or vertical. Neither did The Rifleman.
This isn’t the brand’s first misstep in regards to Nazi-inspired clothing. In 2007, the brand removed from stores a line of handbags with a symbol on them that resembled a swastika.
Trump’s Executive Order for Illegal Immigrant Families has More Holes Than Swiss Cheese
Upon closer examination of Trump’s highly touted Executive Order, the media’s knee-jerk reaction in describing this as an ‘embarrassing capitulation’ for the President speaks to their failure to understand his perception management strategy, since the reality of the situation is that he really just used their leftist-liberal tactics against them in masterfully manipulating the optics to portray his action as the opposite of what it truly is, which is more or less retaining the status quo despite describing it differently in ‘legalese’.
Trump Organization Won’t Track All Foreign Government Payments – The Atlantic
Days before taking office, Donald Trump said his company would donate all profits from foreign governments to the U.S. Treasury, part of an effort to avoid even the appearance of a conflict with the Constitution’s emoluments clause.
Now, however, the Trump Organization is telling Congress that determining exactly how much of its profits come from foreign governments is simply more trouble than it’s worth.

Nobel Committee Member: Trump Is No Longer ‘Moral Leader Of His Country Or The World’
Thorbjorn Jagland, a member of the Norwegian Nobel Committee and the secretary general of Council of Europe, condemned President Trump for his administration’s policy of separating children from their families at the border, saying that Trump is “no longer the moral leader of his country or the world.”
“What is happening at the border where he is separating children from their parents is a sign that he is no longer the moral leader of his country or the world,” Jagland said, according to Agence-France Press.
“He cannot speak on behalf of the so-called free world,” he added.

Melania Trump Really Doesn’t Care, Do U?
The Reconciliation of Opposites and the Politics
The self is the world. The world is the self. If you wish to change the world, look deeply within and discover that the pain and suffering in the world have its origin in you, and nowhere else. The division is within, not “out there” somewhere, and only through the reconciliation of this inner division can the outer wound be closed and healed.
“When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter the Kingdom.”

The oil baron billionaires Charles and David Koch are bankrolling astroturf campaigns across the United States to kill investment in public transit, according to a “must-read” investigation published Tuesday by the New York Times.
“Since 2015, Americans for Prosperity has coordinated door-to-door anti-transit canvassing campaigns for at least seven local or state-level ballots. In the majority, the Kochs were on the winning side,” the Times reports, referencing the political advocacy organization funded by the Koch Brothers.
“Americans for Prosperity and other Koch-backed groups have also opposed more than two dozen other transit-related measures—including many states’ bids to raise gas taxes to fund transit or transportation infrastructure—by organizing phone banks, running advertising campaigns, staging public forums, issuing reports, and writing opinion pieces in local publications,” the report continues.
MidAmerican Energy Hits 50% Renewables In Iowa
Des Moines, Iowa-based MidAmerican Energy Co. provided its Iowa customers with more than half of their electricity from renewable sources last year, the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) verified on Tuesday during its monthly meeting.
The IUB verified that MidAmerican Energy served 50.8% of its retail electric load using renewable generation. MidAmerican Energy expects this percentage to grow annually as the company completes additional wind projects.
Seven U.S. cities to power municipal operations with 100 percent renewables
Chicago, which has committed to power its 900 municipal buildings with 100 percent renewable electricity by 2025, has joined a seven-city collaboration to request price estimates for renewable electricity. The collaboration, led by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, also includes Los Angeles, Houston, Portland, OR, Orlando, FL, and Evanston, IL.
We hear these terms all the time. Migrant. Refugee. Asylum seeker. Immigrant. What’s the difference? Let’s break it down.
A migrant is a person moving from country to country for any number of reasons – better life, better job, more opportunities.
An immigrant is someone who moved to another country and has established residency legally or illegally.
Then there are refugees and asylum seekers. They both seek protection because they fear persecution based on a number of factors, including race, religion, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
Why it’s hard to trade and win
High costs. Most trading programs charge more than $4,000 for their workshops and tutoring packages. In addition, trading generates a lot of commissions, usually $5 to $9 per stock trade at the typical discount broker.
Too much time. It can take years of practice to earn trading profits consistently. Even if you are not trading on a daily basis, you will have to dedicate several hours a week to studying charts and related data.
Potential losses. Trading can lead to huge investment losses. This isn’t for widows, orphans and those with weak stomachs.
Tough competition. Financial firms have better trading tools than you do. High-frequency trading systems utilized by professionals make it harder for individual traders to succeed.

The Big Wobble: Vancouver Island on the move: Episodic Tremor and Slip event feared after more than 150 tremors hit the island in the last 24 hours
“This is a really important piece of information to help us understand the subduction zone where these big earthquakes are more likely to occur,” said Cassidy.
“It doesn’t help us predict when an earthquake will occur, though.”
Due to the fact that Episodic Tremor and Slip events give a slight nudge to a locked fault, it is a period of slightly higher hazard but Cassidy assures that it is not a huge change.
“It is similar to driving in slightly heavier traffic than you normally would.
There might be slightly more risk,” said Cassidy.
“Bottom line is that we live in a subduction zone where earthquakes can happen at any time.
These tremors are a reminder to us that we do live in an active zone and to be prepared.”
It will take a week of monitoring the situation to see if a slip takes place
US Continues Trade War Against China With New 25% Solar Tariff
The United States imposed an additional 25% tariff on imported Chinese solar cells and modules last week in America’s steadily escalating trade war with one of the world’s most dominant economies and international powers.
US President Donald Trump and his Administration have been waging an escalating trade war against China over the past few months, but it was only last week that the trade war expanded to threaten the US solar industry, when US Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer increased the number of product lines subject to a 25% tariff on imported Chinese products. The newly-imposed tariffs will impact $50 billion worth of Chinese products, including solar cells and modules.
This 25% tariff is in addition to the 30% tariff that Donald Trump imposed on all imported solar cells and modules in January of this year.
How Britain Facilitates the Shameful Israeli Naval Blockade on Gaza
40% of World Health Organisation essential medicines are inaccessible in Gaza. The only painkiller available at al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is ibuprofen: the go-to headache remedy in the West is rationed between men, women and children who bleed and clutch their bullet wounds on corridor floors in the 24-48 hour wait to receive treatment. Once surgery begins more corners have to be cut; blood supplies are exhausted due to a lack of lab facilities to transfer it. Overworked doctors improvise and sometimes work miracles, but more often than not Palestinians suffer easily preventable deaths.
8,000 Gazans were shot over the last three months during the Great Return March, pushing a normally inadequate medical system into crisis. This crisis demands expedited cargoloads of vital supplies: something which should be easy for a a strip of land on the Mediterranean, where 30% of the world’s merchant ships are in transit at any time of year. However, Israel has enforced a brutal embargo on Gaza since 2007, and the UK Navy lends a hand to this siege that the UN Human Rights Council have declared a ‘flagrant contravention of international human rights and humanitarian law’.
Israel break the Oslo I accord by shooting at Palestinian fishermen who travel beyond 6 km from the shore, rather than the agreed 37km; they violate UN law by sinking aid flotillas and slaughtering humanitarian workers. If the UK Foreign Office’s stated objective to ‘stand up for human rights by working with international bodies’ was sincere we would not be assisting the IDF in their transgressions.
Minister of State for the Armed Forces Mark Lancaster admitted in a FOIA request that the five British vessels have taken part in Israeli tactical exercises and defence engagement activities since 2016.

Man Who Refused To Hand Over Immigrant Info To ICE: ‘Don’t Collaborate With Fascists’ | HuffPost
“Donald Trump and his administration is filled with white supremacists,” he said. “They don’t care about these kids; it’s a bargaining chip for him to get the wall because he desperately needs some sort of victory going into November elections so he can say ‘Look, we’ve got the wall.’”
Trump reportedly plans to sign an executive order on Wednesday to roll back his administration’s policy of tearing children away from their parents. But thousands of children are still detained, and it’s unclear how they will be reunited with their families. In just one Texas facility, nearly 1,500 children are being kept in cages. At other facilities, journalists and politicians who want to view the conditions inside have been turned away.
A trial began this week for a mother who was separated from her baby after the 4-month-old mistakenly received a Gardasil-9 vaccine intended for her older brother. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services seeks to convince a jury to terminate the parental rights of Anita Vasquez for her now 22-month-old daughter, Aniya Blu Vasquez.
Jury selection began on Monday, June 18, 2018, for the trial which is expected to last up to 2 weeks.
We originally reported their story in June of last year:
Infant Accidentally Vaccinated with Gardasil – Mother Blamed for Vaccine Injuries and Baby Medically Kidnapped
The previously healthy baby, Aniya, began showing symptoms of problems almost immediately after getting the shot, a vaccine which is not approved for use in children under 10 years of age.
Her mother sought medical attention for the symptoms that her daughter exhibited, asking each practitioner about the connection between the symptoms and the Gardasil-9 shot that her baby should not have received, but her concerns were rebuffed at every turn.
No doctor that saw her daughter wanted to admit that the shot could have any kind of side effects.
The doctor who made a medical error in giving her the vaccine has suffered no consequences, but the baby’s family has been ripped apart.
The Senate on Wednesday narrowly rejected President Trump’s plan to claw back roughly $15 billion in spending approved by Congress earlier this year.
Trump’s War on Children is an act of State Terrorism
State terrorism comes in many forms, but one of its most cruel and revolting expressions is when it is aimed at children.
Separating children from their parents is indeed a form of terrorism and it points not only to a society that has lost its moral compass, but has also descended into such darkness that it demands both the loudest forms of moral outrage and a collective resistance aimed at eliminating the narratives, power relations and values that support it.
State violence against children has a long, dark history among authoritarian regimes.
Josef Stalin’s police took children from the parents he labelled as “enemies of the people.” Adolf Hitler, Francisco Franco and Augusto Pinochet all separated children from their families on a large scale as a way to punish political dissidents and those parents considered disposable.

Governor orders probe of abuse claims by immigrant children
WASHINGTON (AP) — Virginia’s governor ordered state officials Thursday to investigate abuse claims by children at an immigration detention facility who said they were beaten while handcuffed and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement, left nude and shivering in concrete cells.
Gov. Ralph Northam announced the probe in a tweet hours after The Associated Press reported the allegations. They were included in a federal civil rights lawsuit with a half-dozen sworn statements from Latino youths held for months or years at the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center. The AP report also cited an adult who saw bruises and broken bones the children said were caused by guards.
Children as young as 14 said the guards there stripped them of their clothes and strapped them to chairs with bags placed over their heads.
Migrant Children Drugged Without Consent At Government Centers, Court Documents Show | HuffPost
Trump administration officials have repeatedly insisted that the family separation policy they implemented over the last six weeks is humane. But the ongoing lawsuit over the Flores agreement, a 1997 settlement that partly governs the detention of child migrants that the White House hopes to overturn, alleges a litany of wrongdoings at the ORR-contracted facilities.
The drugging allegations are among the most disturbing. One child cited in the lawsuit reported taking up to nine pills in the morning and another seven in the evening, without knowing what the medication was.
“ORR routinely administers children psychotropic drugs without lawful authorization,” a memo filed in the lawsuit on April 16 reads. “When youth object to taking such medications, ORR compels them. ORR neither requires nor asks for a parent’s consent before medicating a child, nor does it seek lawful authority to consent in parents’ stead. Instead, ORR or facility staff sign ‘consent’ forms anointing themselves with ‘authority’ to administer psychotropic drugs to confined children.”
Opioid crisis sending thousands of children into foster care | TheHill
In West Virginia, home of the highest overdose rates in the nation, the foster population has increased by 42 percent since 2014.
The number of children in state or foster care hit a record low in Massachusetts earlier this decade. Since then, that number has risen by a quarter, and there are now more children in state care than ever before.
In Ohio, the number of children in state custody has grown by 28 percent since 2015. Foster populations are up more than 30 percent in Alabama, Alaska, California, Idaho, Indiana, Minnesota and New Hampshire since 2014.
“Children that are coming into care are staying in care longer because there’s a higher risk of relapse with their parents,” Turner said.
As the medical industrial complex monopoly degenerates into absolute corruption and fascism, the addiction rates to pain relieving drugs will keep on rising.
This monopoly that is the drug cartel is self destructing, because it is built on the unsustainable foundation of TERMINAL GREED. No free or low cost natural solutions are allowed, even if they have been proven to work.
Anything not sustainable is TERMINAL.
Drugs address only the symptoms, not the ROOT CAUSES of dis-eases. As a result, no problems are solved, and denial is the NORM.
Denial is not a river in Egypt.
Drugs cause brain damaged people who then act like zombies, believing whatever they see or hear on TV. People taking certain drugs cannot think for themselves, due to medications negatively impacting cognitive functions as well as emotions. Some drugs have a side effect of putting people into what is essentially a hypnotic state, so that they will believe and do whatever someone tells them.
Zombies lurch forward into the extinction event that they are creating and living in, without even being consciously aware of this basic fact.
No wonder zombie movies are so popular.
Declining IQ: A Race to the Bottom?
It goes without saying that these general population studies of intelligence trends do not begin to capture the tragic circumstances of children with specific intellectual disabilities such as, in some cases, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or fragile X syndrome (FXS). A recent study by neuroscientists at the University of California-Davis rhetorically posed the parental question, “What will my child’s future hold?” After assessing the IQs of children with ASD at ages two and eight, the Davis researchers found that IQ declined in about 25% of the children over the six years. Studies of children with FXS also have shown that IQ may decline over a relatively short period of time.
And the possible causes of falling IQ are…
Although researchers have speculated on possible contributors to the disquieting IQ trends, few have come up with any meaningful answers. The puzzled investigators of the 2008 Danish study stated, “the declines…seem to be real,” but “it is not easy to account for them.” Another group of authors vaguely discussed four causes ranging from the “cultural-environmental,” to statistical, biological or “hybrid” explanations.
In addition to prevalent toxins such as flame-retardant chemicals, heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum represent another category with documented detrimental effects on intelligence.
There is another far more concrete possibility, which is the impact of environmental toxins on IQ. In addition to prevalent toxins such as PBDEs (flame-retardant chemicals), heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum represent a category with documented detrimental effects on intelligence. Vaccines are one of the most widespread and ongoing sources of prenatal and childhood exposure to these metals. Prenatal exposure—as occurs with the mercury-containing flu shots and aluminum-containing pertussis vaccines now routinely administered to pregnant women—is particularly dangerous as early exposure can impair subsequent growth and development of neurons. The U.S. requires the largest number of vaccines for school entry of any developed nation, although compulsory vaccination has been trending upward in Europe as well.
Childhood brain disorders can have subclinical effects at the individual level that translate into large population-level effects.
Childhood brain disorders can have subclinical effects at the individual level that translate into large population-level effects. Harvard researcher David Bellinger believes (as quoted previously by World Mercury Project) that “Even a modest impact that does not push a child’s neurodevelopment into the range of clinical concern cannot be dismissed as benign because, if the exposure is prevalent, the total number of IQ points lost in the population as a whole might be large, and the reduction in the intellectual resources available to a society substantial.” Researchers already are openly expressing concern about the potential for a mismatch between available cognitive abilities and “the expected larger demand for non-routine analytical-cognitive jobs,” noting that “cognitive tasks at the workplace as well as in daily life and in organization, maintenance and especially innovation are rising.” Predictions that the U.S. is “on the decline” may come true unless decisive action is taken to ensure safe vaccines and eliminate children’s cradle-to-adulthood exposure to the intelligence-harming toxins contained in vaccines.
Many of you experience both a fear of success and a fear of failure. Both stem from a fear of judgment.
The way to overcome both the fear of success and the fear of failure, is to anchor deeply into the energies of faith and trust. Everything that occurs serves you in some way, and the experience itself, regardless of outcome, is what your soul is seeking.
If you can understand that all of it is directing you to your next greatest match and your next grand adventure, you can settle into the deep acceptance that opens the door to peace and truly living without fear. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
This is America: US leaders have praised dictators for decades
Last year, peace activist and former Green Party candidate for Illinois governor Rich Whitney, compiled research in an effort to dispel the myth that the US opposes dictatorships and champions democracy around the world. What he found would not come as a surprise to any rational observer of global affairs, but would surely shock heavily propagandized Americans who have been led to believe that their country promotes freedom and democracy since they were waddling around in diapers.
Analyzing publicly available data, Whitney found that the US provides military assistance to 36 out of 49 nations that democracy watchdog Freedom House classifies as dictatorships. In other words, the US provides military support to a whopping 73 percent the world’s dictatorships while simultaneously claiming to be the most virtuous and well-intentioned nation on earth.
There is one determining factor when it comes to the decision to lend US support to a foreign government or regime — and it is a simple one: If that government or regime is sufficiently subservient to Washington and serves US global interests in any meaningful way, it will be protected and propped up at almost any cost. Its crimes will be swept under the rug and human rights concerns, along with freedom and democracy, will go straight out the window. Every now and then, some US official may pay lip service to its supposed moral values by expressing “deep concern” over some heinous incident or other before swiftly moving on.
Maybe this is also the reason for Trump withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council?
Now there is nothing in the way of the US really getting serious about propping up and supporting the various despotic human rights violating dictatorships all around the world, which Trump praises and adores.
Israel’s IDF Snipers: Choosing Who to Shoot | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization
That factor is the perception of the Gaza Strip as a free fire zone where anyone can be shot and killed with impunity. This perception has developed within the IDF over the years in the course of successive punitive operations. At an earlier stage in the process some kinds of target were still off limits, such as women and people holding a white flag. But in recent years the situation has reached a point where soldiers are permitted to shoot at anyone they see.
As a result, many killings lack even the most tenuous security rationale. In Operation Protective Edge, for example, one tank gunner was told by his commander to fire a tank shell at any target as commemoration for a fellow soldier who was killed. As a sort of game, he and his buddies tried to hit cars moving along one of the Gaza Strip’s main north-south roads. It may therefore be presumed that many of the Gaza demonstrators who have been maimed or killed were shot just for fun, to alleviate boredom, or to express hatred of the “enemy population”.
Is Israel guilty of war crimes, for shooting and killing unarmed civilians?
Is Israel guilty of human rights violations, as it occupies and builds illegal ‘settlements’ in that occupied territory?
Why is the US withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council?
Why is Israel pressuring the US to leave this Council?
US Remains Complicit in ‘Ghastly’ Sexual Torture at Secret Prisons in Yemen
Human Rights Watch described the expose in a 2017 report. “The details are grotesque: prisoners in these centers were ‘crammed into shipping containers smeared with feces and blindfolded for weeks,’ beaten, and trussed up on a ‘grill’ — a spit like a roast to which the victim is tied and spun in a circle of fire.” The report also noted that detainees “were also sexually assaulted, among other forms of abuse.”
The investigation found 18 “clandestine lockups” in southern Yemen operated by the UAE or Yemeni security forces following an extensive investigation that included talking to former prisoners, the families of people in detention, attorneys and Yemeni defense officials.
The torture practices go way beyond waterboarding. “Grilling” involves tying individuals to skewers and twirling them over fires, according to the report. Detainees are shuttled to black sites located within airports, military outposts and even inside nightclubs. The Yemen probe may reveal only part of the secret operations. Select detainees have also been sent to an Emirati base in Eritrea, Yemen Interior Minister Hussein Arab said last year.
Why is there no mention of any of this by Trump or his favorite entertainment outlet; FOX?
And then a person can wonder as the US withdraws from the UN Human Rights Council; how and why did that happen?
Is there a connection to this withdrawal from the Human Rights Council and the US support of torture by the best friends of the US, such as Saudi Arabia, which is known for beheading anyone critical of the despotic KING?
Communist China is also a best friend of the US, and it is also a despotic, human rights violating country, which allows no freedoms or basic human rights to it’s citizens. The leader of that country just appointed himself to life as effective dictator in chief, and Trump applauded this leader.
Israel is effectively a racist Apartheid state, led by an authoritarian regime, and it is best friends with the US and Trump, with the Trump regime never uttering a word against the human rights violations that Israel is guilty of front, left, right and center.

US Slams Human Rights Groups, Blames Them for Leaving UN Human Rights Council
In an official letter sent to a large number of international human rights groups, US Ambassador Nikki Haley angrily attacked those organizations and said that their refusal to back US interests was a “contributing factor” in the US withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council.
This centers on an attempt in late 2017 to push for “reforms” of the UN Human Rights Council, which centered chiefly on Haley insisting that Israel’s occupation of the West Bank be permanently removed from the agenda at the council. The main focus was barring the council from publishing a list of countries that do business in illegal Israeli settlements.
Denial is not a river in Egypt.
The US is supporting Apartheid in Israel, and blaming human rights groups plus the victims of that Apartheid policy in Israel, as it leaves the UN human rights council.
Denial is what happened in Nazi Germany during the rise of Hitler.
Will history have to repeat itself?
Hitler started by demonizing the victims, just as Trump is doing now.
Hitler started by building large numbers of ‘detention’ camps, which then led to the ‘final solution’, via racist hatred/fear.
Hitler separated children from their parents and sent them to ‘camps’, just as Trump is doing today.
After months of threats, the Trump Administration announced Tuesday that they are withdrawing the United States from the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). Officials said the move was because the body is too often critical of Israel’s human rights record.
Israel has long agitated for the US to withdraw from the body, and ratchets that up every time the UN starts investigating a new round of killings in the occupied territories. The US has been talking up this move for awhile.
The US used to be a champion for human rights, freedom and democracy. Under Trump, America is turning into a fascist dualopoly.
Fascism is defined as corporate ownership of the government.
Guess what the US has in place right now?
Corporations generally don’t like human rights, because that means worker rights, and those interfere with maximum profits.
Thus, the US is turning away from human rights, civil rights, freedom, democracy and diversity, in favor of a corrupt Nazi style fascist government.
One step on the way down into the dark abyss of fascism is leaving the Human Rights Council in the UN, which the US established.

A Leaf Would Still Fall | Heavenletters
There are no sands of time when it comes to Me. I am a Stand-Out. I stand in Oneness, and so do you. United forever are We as One. Infinite is beyond time. There is no bank of time. Permanent isn’t an impulse of time, you understand. Permanency doesn’t go by the clock. The world sets itself to the millisecond. Time may seem to stand still once in a while, yet illusive time is always on the move. You can’t really catch up to it. Time can only be imagined no matter how much time likes to look in the mirror and enforce itself. Sure, time can tie you up in knots.
Infinity is, and that’s it. Is-ness is. We can say that Being-ness has no use for time.
Time is paltry even as it pictures itself for all time. Time can be generous or stingy depending upon its mood. Infinity has nothing to do with time. Of course, Infinity is irrespective of time. There is never enough time in the world at large. Infinity doesn’t go in slow motion. Fast or slow are illusions of the greatest illusionist of all – that squirt, time – gets tripped up into himself.
Infinity has all the Silence that exists in Heaven. There are no clocks ticking in Heaven! Does not even the thought of time in Heaven make you smile?! Can you imagine My turning to look at a clock or My counting the minutes before blast-off? Can you imagine an alarm going off in Heaven and a fire department rushing to the rescue! What for?
My creating you had and has nothing to do with time. Only on Earth is time believed in. You lean on time when time is really of no consequence. On Earth, you count the days and years and lifetimes.
ICE Director: ICE Can’t Be Compared To Nazis Since We’re Just Following Orders – The Intellectualist
The acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Monday that comparing ICE agents to Nazis is unfair, because “they’re simply enforcing laws enacted by Congress”.
Thomas Homan employed the “Nuremberg defense” – used by German Nazi officials in an attempt to escape accountability with the claim they were merely following orders.
Joe Kennedy III Slams Trump Border Policy: ‘Humanity Doesn’t Require Citizenship’
But as they walked across the street to pass through a gate to the shelter, which is run by HHS contactor Comprehensive Health Systems, the lawmakers were stopped by a staff member who said they weren’t going to allow them in. “Right now you guys are trespassing on federal property,” a uniformed man told them Tuesday.
Up to 1,000 children held by immigration authorities now living in Homestead compound
Miami, are we going to let 1,000 children be kept in detention in the dark? Speak up!
A protester holds up a sign during a press conference in front of the detention center in Homestead. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz were denied entry to the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children.
The trio walked to an office across the street from the shelter where they tried to get answers. Minutes later they were back in front of the cameras, questioning why the Trump administration wouldn’t let them in.
The Memo: Religious right hits Trump on border crisis
Recent hits on Trump have come from some surprising quarters, including Franklin Graham, an early supporter of the president and the son of the late Billy Graham.
Graham called the splitting up of children from their parents “disgraceful” and “terrible” in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network last week.
On Tuesday, another influential Christian leader published an op-ed in The New York Times that jabbed at the policy. Bob Vander Plaats, president of the Family Leader, wrote: “We should execute justice, yes. But not with the kind of cruelty we’re reading about from the border with Mexico.”
A third blast came from the Faith and Freedom Coalition, also on Tuesday.
The organization’s founder and chairman, Ralph Reed, wrote that the separations were “heartbreaking and tragic” and “part of the larger tragedy of a broken immigration system that does not reflect our values or our faith.” Reed, however, put the onus on Congress to fix the situation.
There is a great balancing occurring of both your masculine and feminine expressions of power. If you have been oppressed in one aspect of power, either in this or pastlife expressions, you will be releasing those wounds and then integrating what you need to shift into the embodiment of that masculine or feminine expression of authentic power.
If you have misused power yourself, either in this or pastlife expressions, you will be releasing the guilt, shame, and regret associated with that time, forgiving yourself, and getting clarity on what the mindful use of power is, in order to move forward and use it beautifully and appropriately.
So for many of you, you will be releasing masculine and integrating feminine. Others will be releasing feminine and integrating masculine. It is all part of moving forward as an empowered human being, beautifully embodying the divine attributes of both. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
The executive order President Donald Trump signed on Wednesday may put an end to separation of families, but it sets the stage for children whose parents are prosecuted to be held in indefinite detention with their parents while the family goes through immigration proceedings.
Why are so many migrants crossing the U.S. border? It often starts with an escape from violence in Central America
Obama asks America to end family separation at border as Trump backs down
Among many other issues, that raises the question of where these families will be held as they await court hearings.
Family detention centers run by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have a current capacity of 3,335 beds, according to the latest federal budget allocations. But on average, 420 parents and kids are crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in family groups each day, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data obtained by NBC News.
First he lied and claimed it was the Dems fault.
Then he lied again and said it was a law he could do nothing about and he had no control over it.
Then he lied when he said he had nothing to do with it.
Now he ‘fixes’ it with an ‘order’ just like any ordinary tin pot dictator.
Senate votes to block Trump’s ZTE deal | TheHill
The back-and-forth comes after the Trump administration announced earlier this month that it had reached a deal to lift penalties against the company in exchange for ZTE paying a $1 billion fine and embedding a U.S.-selected compliance team in the firm.
But the deal rattled lawmakers on Capitol Hill, including otherwise close allies of Trump’s.
“We’re heartened that both parties made it clear that protecting American jobs and national security must come first when making deals with countries like China, which has a history of having little regard for either.
Soybean prices drop to nine-year low on US-China trade war fears
Soybean futures for July delivery drop more than 7 percent to a low of $8.415 a bushel, their lowest since March 2009, according to Thomson Reuters.
A war of words between the U.S. and China picked up overnight, following announcements of tit-for-tat tariffs on $34 billion worth of imports late last week.
If Beijing imposed a 10 percent tariff on U.S. soybeans, total American soybean exports could drop by 18 percent, according to one study.
