FOIA: How Police Convinced the FAA to Put a No Fly Zone Over Standing Rock

When last year's Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) protests came to a head, disturbing footage shot by Indigenous drone pilots revealed the extreme brutality of Morton County police. Using drones, peaceful demonstrators, also called "water protectors," filmed an armored vehicle launching percussion grenades into the crowd; water cannons being fired at civilians; and continued pipeline construction after dark. Their footage helped to expose the military-style tactics used by local law enforcement to suppress dissent—excessive force that is now the subject of a class-action lawsuit filed against Morton County by on behalf of those injured at the Standing Rock protest camp.

On 22 September, the US conducted an airstrike on an ISIS camp in the desert valleys about 150 miles south-east of Sirte, reportedly killing 17 ISIS fighters and destroying 3 vehicles.

Israeli minister comes clean about Tel Aviv’s ‘Assad can sort of stay’ narrative

Since 1967, Israel has illegally occupied part of Syria, the Golan Heights. In 1981, the Israeli regime annexed Syria’s land even though the entire world, including the United States, refuses to recognise the Golan Heights as anything other than part of Syria. Israel has been occupying Syria dating back to a time when Iran was one of America’s closest allies. Whereas in much of the 20th century, Tel Aviv’s ire was directed at the Arab world, successive changes to Arab governments along with the rise of post-revolutionary Iran and now Turkey’s pivot towards Eurasia, has caused a vocal shift in Israel’s position, although it is one scarcely talked ab

DHS To Officially Require Immigrants' Files To Contain Social Media Info

It looks like being the wrong kind of American will result in the mandatory collection of social media account handles and aliases. New rules on social media snooping have been floated several times with varying degrees of sincerity, but this time the DHS actually means it.

The Lethal Foreign Policy of Military Experts

Libya was bombed by the US government yesterday, but you wouldn’t know it because the media have been obsessed with the #TakeAKnee dispute between the president and the NFL. Trump may not even be aware that Libya was bombed under his authority, because he has put his trusty “Mad Dog” on a very long leash, in the hopes that he’ll be able to figure out how to clean up the mess in the Middle East.

Republicans Push For 2nd Special Counsel To Investigate Hillary, Comey, & Lynch

As Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion turns into a witch-hunt in search of anything, or anyone that can be scapegoated to justify the year long circus originating from a Hillary Clinton-John Podesta concocted story to explain away their failed $2 billion election disaster, documented crimes were committed by Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch. Perjury, obstruction of justice, secret airport tarmac meetings, leaking of government documents, and the destruction of 33,000 government emails... perhaps the GOP has finally mustered up the balls to bring in the real criminals to justice.

A former Florida police officer has admitted to forcing undocumented immigrants into having sex with him.

Train Stations to use Facial Recognition and Palm Vein Scanners for Payment

The stages of incrementalism seem to be speeding up. Nicholas West has written for Activist Post just this month about China’s high tech KFC called KPRO turning to facial recognition for payment, as well as a UK supermarket becoming the world’s first to use finger vein scans for its customers. The use of biometrics was, of course, first peddled as a necessary security measure, so we have seen it spread in that capacity from planes to trains and even for event security. Now the cashless agenda can more aggressively make its move for the full roll-out of biometric identification and payment into every facet of daily life.

Famous Fake News Hoaxer Featured In WaPo Found Dead

When the whole “fake news” meme spread during the election to try and explain Trump’s massive support, news outlets were hard pressed to produce actual examples of the propaganda they so vehemently claimed was influencing the election. The Washington Post was instrumental in seeding the phrase when they published a story in April, 2016 about pro-Trump websites spreading misinformation, implying that misinformation was poisoning voters against Hillary Clinton.

Iraq Deploys Troops To Kirkuk After Kurdistan "Yes" Vote; Turkey Threatens Blockade

Immediately on the heels of the Iraqi Kurdistan "yes" vote, the Iraqi parliament approved sending troops to the disputed Kirkuk region to prevent the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) from taking full control of the oil-rich area. Preliminary official results out Wednesday indicate a 92% vote in favor of Kurdish independence. A written statement produced by Baghdad said the decision aims to protect Iraqi citizens residing in the contested area between Baghdad and Erbil. But the decision is also no doubt motivated by protection of Kirkuk's multiple oil and gas fields, which Baghdad has now ordered the KRG to hand over, including all other oil facilities throughout northern Iraq.

Baghdad issues demands, setting stage for civil war with Kurds

In response to more than 90% of Iraqi Kurds voting in favor of independence through peaceful means, the Iraqi government has issued the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) an ultimatum: hand over control over your airports and control of your borders. The Iraqi government is threatening an air embargo if the Kurds don’t comply with the demand. The move shows exactly how weak Baghdad is. Knowing it can’t force the Kurds to comply militarily on the ground, it’s only option is to threaten civilian air traffic.
