    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    That's not what the article claims. It claims the specific picture the guy claimed was proof was in fact just an ordinary doll. NWO, Bilderberg and aliens. Jesus, take your meds.

    "The Merry Widow" - MGM Remake

    Speaking of which, I wonder if TCM has ever played the French version of the movie that was produced alongside the English one (similar to the Spanish and English Draculas also made at the time.) If they haven't, it would make a great TCM Import as I'm very interested in seeing it. There's only a few clips on YouTube though.

    2018 Elections

    https://www.rt.com/usa/428722-facebook-google-sued-seattle/ Facebook & Google sued over election ads in Washington state Silicon Valley social media giants may face millions of dollars in penalties from two lawsuits filed in Seattle, Washington, arguing that they have failed to comply with state and local laws on election advertising. State Attorney General Bob Ferguson sued Facebook and Google on Monday, saying they have not produced documents requested by the media and members of the public related to political ads for local and state elections since 2013. “We can’t have a world here in Washington State where we’re transparent on radio buys, we’re transparent on TV buys, but we’re not transparent when it comes to ads on Facebook and Google,” Ferguson told The Stranger, a Seattle newspaper. “That’s not okay.” The lawsuit is apparently not related to the claims of 'Russian online interference' in the 2016 US presidential election, though Ferguson called them a “backdrop” showing how important transparency was. Instead, the case relates to the state and local laws adopted in the 1970s, long before Google or Facebook were in existence. Washington State Initiative 276, passed in 1972, includes the section called “Commercial Advertisers' Duty to Report.” A nearly identical ordinance was passed in 1977 by the City of Seattle. The definitions of “commercial advertiser” and “political advertising” in the laws are so broad, the authorities say, they apply to digital platforms that have since been established, such as Google and Facebook.

    TRUMPISM IN CANADA

    https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2018/06/04/rob-fords-widow-sues-doug-ford-alleging-he-has-deprived-them-of-millions.html Rob Ford’s widow sues Doug Ford, alleging he has deprived her and her children of millions The widow and children of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford are suing his brother Doug Ford, alleging he has deprived them of millions of dollars, including shares in the family business and a life insurance policy left behind to support his family. In a $16.5-million lawsuit filed Friday in Superior Court, Renata Ford also alleges that former brother-in-law Doug Ford is a “negligent” business manager whose decisions have led to a steady decrease in the value of the Ford company, Deco Labels. Despite setting his sights on a political career, Doug has continued to receive “extravagant compensation,” even though Deco is losing money, Renata claims in her court filings.

    Trump & International politics

    New Zizek opinion article on Trump's trade war and his belligerent take on international politics. https://www.rt.com/op-ed/428812-donald-trump-sides-europe/ Slavoj Zizek: The secret of how to defeat Trump lies in Europe There may well be two sides to Donald Trump. The “peaceful” and the “belligerent,” depending on his moods. And we might just have seen both of them in quick succession. Just after announcing the meeting with Kim Jong-un, Trump decided to withdraw from the Iran agreement, thereby bringing instability and the threat of war (not only) to the Middle East. But, of course, there is only one Trump, who was doing exactly the same thing in both cases. In the case of North Korea, he began with exerting extreme pressure, including economic sanctions and military threats, and he is doing the same to Iran, in the hope that, if it worked the first time, it will work now also. Will it though? What if the US government is well aware that the pressure on Iran will not work? What if, together with Israel and Saudi Arabia, they are preparing for war with Iran? It is difficult to speculate about the consequences of such a military conflict. We should rather focus on the limitation of Trump’s entire approach: Will Trump get his comeuppance? Because Neither Russia nor China can do this – they are caught in the same game as Trump and they basically all speak the same language of “America (Russia, China…) first.”

    AFRICA NEWS

    A great message to send North Korea before the upcoming talks https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-06-05/sudan-says-u-s-hasn-t-lifted-technology-sanctions The U.S. hasn’t lifted economic sanctions against Sudan on telecommunications and other technology sectors since the Trump administration announced last October that it would partially lift sanctions against Sudan, the country’s telecommunications minister Ibrahim El-Mirghani told reporters in the capital Khartoum. El-Mirghani says the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control has refused to lift telecommunications and technology sanctions against his country and that it’s in contact with “many concerned bodies” in the U.S. to “fully” lift the sanctions and to “allow our telecommunications sector to get the benefit of that.” The Trump administration decided to partially lift the sanctions, which were imposed in 1997, against Sudan last fall but the country hasn’t been able to integrate itself with the global financial system because it is still on a U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. In response, Sudanese officials said Sudan is fully cooperating with the U.S. in the fight against terror.

    ISRAEL MIDDLE EAST NEWS

    https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/06/06/raqq-j06.html Amnesty International report finds US guilty of war crimes in Syria The US carried out war crimes in its four-month-long siege of the Syrian city of Raqqa last year, according to evidence gathered by Amnesty International and released in a report by the human rights group on Tuesday. The report takes its title, “War of Annihilation,” from the description given by Defense Secretary James Mattis of the tactics that would be pursued in taking the city from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The report concludes that “the impact on civilians was devastating.” “There is strong evidence that [US] coalition air and artillery strikes killed and injured thousands of civilians, including in disproportionate or indiscriminate attacks that violated international humanitarian law and are potential war crimes,” Amnesty International declared.

    ISRAEL MIDDLE EAST NEWS

    http://inthesetimes.com/article/21193/Israel-Palestinians-Gaza-Army-police-african-americans/ Why We Should Be Alarmed That Israeli Forces and U.S. Police Are Training Together Razan al-Najjar is the latest victim in Israel's onslaught of Palestinians to go viral. The 21-year-old nurse was shot dead by a sniper. Her only weapon? A wad of medical gauze. She'd been treating protestors who've been rallying for their right to return to homes they were expelled from as refugees. Unfortunately, the death of another unarmed civilian is hardly even news to Palestinians. May 14, the day the United States moved its embassy to Jerusalem in symbolic support of recognizing the city as Israel’s capital, was also the bloodiest day in this recent wave of demonstrations. In just one day, at least 50 Palestinians were killed and 2,400 more injured by the Israeli military. (Other counts put those figures even higher.) This isn't an anomaly. In this latest wave of demonstrations, Israeli forces have killed dozens of unarmed protesters and wounded thousands more. And they’re not apologizing.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    http://www.businessinsider.com/giuliani-kim-jong-un-begged-for-trump-summit-on-his-hands-and-knees-2018-6 Giuliani says Kim Jong Un got 'on his hands and knees and begged for' the summit with Trump Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who's now a lawyer for President Donald Trump, said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un got "on his hands and knees and begged" the president to move forward with a planned summit after Trump abruptly canceled it in late May. Giuliani's comments about Kim could anger North Korea, given that it does not take kindly to any statements or actions that could be perceived as insulting or threatening toward its leader. Trump is set to meet with Kim in Singapore on Tuesday. Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who's now a lawyer for President Donald Trump, said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un begged the president to move forward with a planned summit after Trump abruptly canceled it in late May. "Well, Kim Jong Un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it, which is exactly the position you want to put him in," Giuliani said at an investment conference in Israel, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

    ISRAEL MIDDLE EAST NEWS

    https://apnews.com/27e8179cf10140dca7eb86b3488f01e2 Secret Obama-era permit let Iran convert funds to dollars WASHINGTON (AP) — After striking an elusive nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration found itself in a quandary in early 2016: Iran had been promised access to its long-frozen overseas reserves, including $5.7 billion stuck in an Omani bank. To spend it, Iran wanted to convert the money into U.S. dollars and then euros, but top U.S. officials had repeatedly promised Congress that Iran would never gain access to America’s financial system. Those assurances notwithstanding, the Obama administration secretly issued a license to let Iran sidestep U.S. sanctions for the brief moment required to convert the funds through an American bank, an investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday showed. The plan failed when two U.S. banks refused to participate. Yet two years later, the revelation is re-igniting the bitter debate over the nuclear deal and whether former President Barack Obama was too eager to grant concessions to Tehran.
