Iran and North Korea, U.S. Hypocrisy, Michelle Obama Pulls Out Her Race Card, No Transgenders Allowed in U.S. Military: Your Wednesday Briefing
1. Iran and North Korea Advancing Their ICBM Capabilities
Two enemies of America are poised for upcoming rocket launches, two senior U.S. officials told Fox News, with another North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile launch expected as soon as Wednesday night and Iran on the verge of sending its own vehicle into space. Reported by Fox News: Iran poised to launch a rocket into space, as North Korea readies another missile test.
2. The U.S Once Again Shows It’s Hypocrisy With Sanctions Against Russia Over Election B.S.
The bill, drawn up largely in response to Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 US election, calls for new measures against Russia, North Korea, and Iran. It also limits any effort by the White House to weaken such penalties. Via CNN News: EU warns the US over ‘America first’ Russia sanctions bill.
(The U.S has a long history of interfering with elections worldwide and even forced regime/government change with Iraq and Libya being two of the more recent examples. The U.S government has alway meddled abroad, however, when someone EVEN ALLEGEDLY does some meddling in U.S. politics then the U.S. government and media go all nuts about it.)
3. Michelle Obama Holds Firmly Onto Her Worn-Out Race Card
Michelle Obama has opened up in front of a crowd of about 8,500 at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th-anniversary event in Denver about her experience as America’s first black first lady. As seen in The Huffington Post: Michelle Obama Addresses Racist Attacks She Endured As First Lady. (News flash – no one cares about your blackness but you. How are we, the American people supposed to not pay any attention to your skin color when you insist on bringing it up constantly.)
4. Donald Trump Says Transgender People No Longer Allowed To Serve In Military
President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that transgender people will no longer be allowed to serve in the U.S. military “in any capacity” ― a stunning reversal of an Obama-era policy that affects thousands of service members. And once again from The HuffingtonPost: Donald Trump Says Transgender People No Longer Allowed To Serve In Military.
+ Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;’ Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’.
(Yep, what he said… I for one will never call a man in a dress a “she” or by a woman’s name because to me that’s an insult to real women and I will not take part in that.)
5. The UK To Ban New Petrol and Diesel Cars By 2040
All sales of new petrol and diesel cars will cease in the UK by 2040, under plans to tackle air pollution. As reported by The BBC News Network: Petrol and diesel ban: How will it work?
(Another question is how long before the U.S. follows the UK and also bans petrol and diesel cars?)
6. Touch A Police Car… Get Shot By a Trigger Happy Somali Muslim Police Officer
Investigators say that before Justine Damond was shot to death by a Minneapolis police officer, a woman “slapped” the back of his patrol car. Via The BBC: Justine Damond death: Woman ‘slapped police car’.
(Police (even Somali Muslim police) should be held accountable by the same laws that pertain to the use of deadly force as everyone else – if it would be considered murder by Joe citizen then it should be considered murder even if the murderer is hiding behind a badge. This trigger happy cop should be made an example of and given 25 to life in a federal penitentiary.)
+ And of course the Baltimore Sun and Black reporter E.R. Shipp pulls the race on the shooting with their report – Wrongs aren’t addressed until they happen to whites. A sickening story that is rife with black on white racism – oh, I’m sorry, I almost forgot that only white folks can be racist.
7. UFC – Daniel Cormier Can Compete, but Can He Beat Jon Jones?
UFC 214 is right around the corner, and this week’s episode is all about the main event, a long-awaited rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. Via Bloody Elbow: Daniel Cormier can compete, but can he beat Jon Jones?
(I’m rooting for Daniel Cormier – hoping that he can pull it off. I think his best chance is to take Jones to the mat and submit him, but if you’ve ever watched Jones fight then you know that is easier said than done.)
+ And while we are talking about sports – Major new study connects football, brain injuries.
8. Regime Change: Obama’s CIA Director Brennan Calls for Revolt if Mueller is Fired
Government officials should refuse to follow President Donald Trump’s orders if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller, Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan said – effectively calling for the overthrow of the Commander in Chief. As reported by The World Tribune: Obama’s CIA Director Brennan calls for a revolt if Mueller is fired.
9. The Government Gave $1.2 Million Worth Of Military Gear To A Fake Police Department
In recent years it’s become increasingly difficult for ordinary Americans to ignore the fact that their local police departments are becoming militarized. Just a couple generations ago, the police were armed with pretty much the same weapons that civilians could own. They drove vehicles that, without decals and sirens, wouldn’t be out of place at an ordinary car dealership. They wore uniforms that were comparable to clothes worn by other civilian government employees. Now they carry assault rifles, drive armored vehicles, and on occasion they wear camouflage. They look and sometimes act, just like soldiers in a war zone. Reported by SHTF Plan: Want Some Free Guns? The Government Gave $1.2 Million Worth Of Military Gear To A Fake Police Department.
