2………….> Trump’s 52 Punch Threat: Iran

 

President Trump threatened to hit 52 Iranian sites “very hard”, if Iran attacks Americans, or US assets after a drone strike that killed Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani and an Iraqi militia leader.
He warned they were important to Iran and Iranian culture, while the Iraqi Parliament convened to a session during which a vote to expel US troops could be taken as soon as Sunday, as mourners carried the bodies of Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis through Baghdad’s Green Zone.

Mr. Trump said the United States has “targeted 52 Iranian sites” and that some were “at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD”.

“The USA wants no more threats!” Mr. Trump said, adding that the 52 targets represented the 52 Americans who were held hostage in Iran for 444 days after being seized at the US embassy in Tehran in November 1979.

3…………> Bad News For Holocaust Deniers: Armed Jews

 

The number of attacks against Jews in the US sky rocketed from 751 in 2013 to 1,879 incidents in 2018, forcing many to take shooting lessons, but many in the community are uncomfortable with the number of citizens taking up arms.

“I have arthritis,” she tells the tactical assault trainer, who recommends she try a Glock instead, while a young and pregnant woman is looking at  the Ruger Mini-14 semi-automatic rifle.

She’s never owned a firearm before, but a recent spate of attacks against members of her community has convinced her of the need to be armed before the baby is born.

“A lot of Jews in America have been brought up, unfortunately, with the attitude: ‘Guns? That’s not us. That’s not what we do’,” trainer Yonatan Stern tells his class.

“We cannot allow ourselves to continue to be helpless victims.”(abc.net.au)

4…………> Iran Pushed Into Nuke Madness: Ayatollah

 

Iran has said it will no longer respect the limits of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal. Iranian officials have said they are considering even harsher steps following the US killing of General Soleimani, but will continue to cooperate with the United Nations nuclear watchdog, taking steps to distance themselves from the restrictions of the deal.

Iran says there is now no limit on their uranium enrichment capacity.

5…………> The Sheep Thieves: UK

 

While the restless world is holding its breath, waiting to see the next gruesome step in the unfolding Iran/US spat, the Islamic Sheikdom of UK authorities suspect that a gang of professional sheep thieves is behind the disappearance of close to 200 animals over the past two months, the robberies carried out by a professional crew of thieves equipped with specially trained dogs in Wiltshire, southern England.

Three incidents in the Wiltshire communities of Lacock, Melksham and Derry Hill were blamed on 45, 61 and 72 sheep stolen, with the latest theft involved Romney breeding ewes, a hardy breed of sheep valued for its meat and long wool.

Constable Emily Thomas of Wiltshire Police urged the residents of region to remain vigilant, and to call police if they spot any vehicles or people dealing with livestock whom they did not recognize.

“Even if it turns out the individuals are legitimate, we would rather be made aware so we can check all is well,” she said.

The theft of farm animals is not an uncommon crime in the Islamic Sheikdom of UK, with the prices of livestock vary considerably by region, and ranges  for sheep and lambs from £70-£150 a head.

2………….> Trump’s ICE Broom: Illegal Alien Fleeing Fatal Hit & Run

 

On December 30, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers arrested Jorge Flores-Villalba, 27, as he exited a residence in Haverstraw, NY. Following his release from local custody where he was charged with a felony for leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in the death of a 35-year old woman on Christmas Eve.

Flores-Villalba, a Mexican national, was arrested by Stony Point Town Police Dec. 25, for fleeing from the fatal hit-and-run. He was released that same day without bail. ICE was alerted to Flores-Villalba’s arrest after his fingerprints revealed he was previously apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol in 2008 when he attempted to enter the country illegally, and was subsequently returned to Mexico. Flores-Villalba re-entered the country illegally at an unknown date and time following that encounter.

Flores-Villalba is expected to remain in ICE custody pending his removal proceedings; ICE will continue to work with the local law enforcement agencies regarding his upcoming court date for his criminal proceedings.

3…………> Aussies Fires: Like Aftermath Of A Nuke Bomb Explosion

 

Authorities are bracing for more property losses after another destructive bush fire day in which temperature records were broken, with unpredictable wind change is making its way up the NSW coast, and residents in parts of the state’s south are being urged to take shelter.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said NSW was “yet to hit the worst of it”

Overwhelmed fire crews worked well into the night battling blazes fanned by a predicted southerly change that swept up the east coast, hitting parts of Sydney around mid-night, with 13 emergency warnings across the state, while the mercury in Penrith, in Sydney’s west, reached 48.9(120F) degrees Celsius — a new record temperature for the Sydney Basin.

5…………> Katyusha Rockets Attack On US Base: Iraq

 

Tensions are running high and hot in the Middle East, as Iran promised a deadly retaliation against the United States following the killing of Iranian top military official Qasem Soleimani, with two Katyusha rockets hitting Iraq’s Balad Air Base north of Baghdad hosting US forces, while a rocket of the same type landed inside the Green Zone’s Celebrations Square near the US Embassy in Baghdad, causing no casualties.

​​Meanwhile, five people were injured in a mortar attack in the Jadiriya district of the capital hosting ministerial buildings.

“Several rockets exploded on Saturday in the center of Baghdad, in a residential area of Al-Jadriya and the Balad military base to the north of the capital. There are no casualties at the moment”, Iraqi security  statement read.

2………….>  Trump Gets A Merry Christmas Gift From Comrade Un: A Nuke Warhead

 

President Trump dismissed North Korea’s warnings over a promised “Christmas gift” to the US, seen as a thinly veiled yet cryptic threat that could escalate tensions after a year of failed de-nucleation talks, by warning the US that its actions will determine what “Christmas gift” it will receive” i.e.  get ready for long-range missile or nuclear tests.
Many observers say that Comrade Un is walking a fine line in provoking the US after stalled talks.

“We’ll find out what the surprise is and we’ll deal with it very successfully,” the US President told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

“Maybe it’s a present where he sends me a beautiful vase as opposed to a missile test.”

3…………> Putin’s Christmas Card To Americans: I Got Hypersonic Weapons

 

President Vladimir Putin claims Russia is the only country in the world that can deploy hypersonic weapons,meaning he’s  ahead of its forever enemy, the United States, for the first time in modern history.

Hypersonic weapons travel more than five times the speed of sound(MACH5), and may evade spacial surveillance, placing Russia in a “unique” position in its modern history.
Australia and US researchers are helping both countries bridge the technological gap

The Russian leader noted that during Cold War times, the Soviet Union was behind the US in designing the atomic bomb and building strategic bombers and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

“Now, we have a situation that is unique in modern history, when they are trying to catch up to us,” he said.

“Not a single country has hypersonic weapons, let alone hypersonic weapons of intercontinental range.”

1…………> MS-13 Gangsters Indicted: DOJ

Twenty-four MS-13 members are facing a federal indictment for violent racketeering, murder, and money laundering conspiracies, including 
five murders, conspiring to murder eight persons, engaging in kidnappings, extortion, and drug trafficking.

“MS-13 is ravaging communities throughout the United States with brutal violence, recruiting children to their murderous ranks, destroying families, and leaving behind countless victims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Cronan. “This indictment — which charges two dozen alleged MS-13 members with senseless acts of violence — is the latest example of the Department of Justice’s unwavering commitment to combatting violent gangs that prey on communities, whether in Maryland or elsewhere in our country.” 

Twenty-one defendants are charged with conspiracy to participate in a racketeering enterprise known as La Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, including: 
Jorge Raul Guerra Castillo, aka “Pelon,”36; 
Carlos Hernandez Diaz, aka “Positivo,” 25; 
Milton Portillo Rodriguez, aka “Little Gangster,” and “Seco,” 23;

2…………> Up Oil Output: Trump  To House Of Saud 

“Just spoke to King Salman of Saudi Arabia and explained to him that, because of the turmoil & dysfunction in Iran and Venezuela, I am asking that Saudi Arabia increase oil production, maybe up to 2,000,000 barrels, to make up the difference…Prices too high! He has agreed!” Trump wrote on his Twitter account. 

With Venezuela’s oil output has been in steep decline due to Maduro crash in progress, and new US sanctions on Iran the oil prices posted massive gains this week, Brent crude gained 6.5% and American benchmark West Texas Intermediate jumped 9.3%percent between Tuesday and Friday. 

“Oil prices are too high, OPEC is at it again. Not good!” Trump wrote two weeks ago. He tweeted in April: “Looks like OPEC is at it again. With record amounts of oil all over the place, including the fully loaded ships at sea, oil prices are artificially Very High! No good and will not be accepted!”

3…………> Comrade Un Is Lying: US Spooks

“There is absolutely unequivocal evidence that they are trying to deceive the US,” an intelligence official was quoted as saying. 

The CIA declined to comment on the report. The State Department said it could not confirm it and did not comment on matters of intelligence.

The Islamic Merkledom of Germany spent 1.25 % of its GDP on defense in 2017 and plans to hit 1.5% by 2024, but Poland spent 2% of its GDP on defense and is about to meet the NATO alliance target.

2…………> Sonar Target: NC

Researchers with the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) sent divers deep off the coast of North Carolina in search of an explanation after detecting a mysterious sonar “Big Dipper Anomaly”, inferred to be an “archaeology site, a geological formation, pirate ships, Civil War-era blockade runners and even German U-boats”.

NOAA would be sending the Okeanos Explorer to an undisclosed area to investigate the possible “sonar anomaly,” which according to early diver exploration is thought to be “a geological formation with biological communities and other debris.”
 

3…………> Don’t Push Us: China

Despite of truly idiotic claims by “Fake News” outlets of a “very good chemistry” between President Trump and China’s Mr.Xi, US Defense Secretary James Mattis was basically told that China won’t give up “even one inch” of lands it inherited from its ancestors: i.e. the made islands in the South China Sea and the associated sea lanes map:

 
“Preservation of sovereignty and territorial integrity, which Xi Jinping cited, is a principle and core thread of China’s policies. We won’t make any concessions over the sovereignty and territorial integrity issue, which is of paramount importance for the country. It is not an issue to be negotiated,” is the word of Lord Xi according to Shen Shishun, a senior researcher at the China Institute of International Studies in Beijing. 
 
The lovely question now is how Mr.Trump who has borrowed nearly 700 billion dollars to demonstrate the US new strength and greatness, raising the National debt to $21.18 trillion dollars along the way, and also levied billions in tariffs on China and EU, will order Navy ships to stop crossing the illegal South China Sea map and submit to the piracy dreams of Mr.Xi?

 

 

4…………> A Prelude To War: Israel

Taling into consideration the fact that Hezbollah possesses up to 120,000 short- and medium-range rockets, and several hundred long-range missiles, Israeli nuclear scientists studies revealed that if a Scud missile landed within 115 feet (35 meters) of an Israeli nuclear reactor, the explosion could cause damage to its protective dome and disrupt control systems responsible for operating and cooling it.

Consequently, the Israel Atomic Energy Commission (IAEC) has been working to boost the security of the Dimona and Nahal Sorek nuclear reactors against possible missile strikes from Iran and Lebanon-based Hezbollah, and carried out training exercises simulating a missile attack on one of the facilities, including the evacuation of personnel and measures to prevent radioactive material leakages.

 

 

 

5…………> “Zero Tolerance”: DC Protest

Over 500 women, draped in foil sheets similar to those used as blankets by undocumented children being held in large chain-link cages at detention centers after they were separated from their parents by the ICE police, were arrested at the U.S. Capitol Thursday while protesting against President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policy


The demonstration followed a march earlier in the day through Washington demanding an end to Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

1…………> Keep Open: Coal, Nuke Plants
“President Donald J. Trump believes in total energy independence and dominance, and that keeping America’s energy grid and infrastructure strong and secure protects our national security, public safety, and economy from intentional attacks and natural disasters,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Friday.“Unfortunately, impending retirements of fuel-secure power facilities are leading to a rapid depletion of a critical part of our Nation’s energy mix and impacting the resilience of our power grid.”

 

“President Trump has directed Secretary of Energy Rick Perry to prepare immediate steps to stop the loss of these resources and looks forward to his recommendations,” Sanders added.

 

The move would be unprecedented because the plants in question are at risk of closing down due to increased competition from abundant natural gas and renewable energy sources. The policy would coerce the owners of power grids across the nation to purchase electricity from coal and nuclear plants.

2…………> Indian Dust Storm: Casualties
“We have reports of 16 people dead due to the storm which started on Friday evening. The casualties are from various districts of the state. The Moradabad district reported the highest number of deaths — seven.” T.P. Gupta, an official at the State’s Relief Commissioner Office in Lucknow, told Anadolu Agency.

Mahesh Palawat, the head of private weather agency Skymet, told Anadolu News agency that the intensity of Friday’s dust storm was “severe” in some places. “In most places, there is no prediction of any similar dust storm in the days ahead,” he said.

He said at least 12 people were also injured in the storm.

Local media reported that most of the deaths in the state were due to houses collapsing and trees falling.

3…………> Ptolemy IV Coin: In Aussie Rainforest
A  bronze coin minted during the reign of Egypt’s Pharaon Ptolemy IV, who ruled the country between 221 and 204BC, was found more than two millennia later in 1912 Australia, buried a few inches underground in the depths of the far north Queensland rainforest by a man named Andrew Henderson, who had abandoned the gold mining fields of Victoria for a warmer climate.

“Henderson got a block of land in the scrub and he became a settler,” far north Queensland historian, Dave Phoenix said.

“One day in 1912 he was building a fence line and as he was digging a hole for a fence post his shovel hit something metallic.

“He reached into the hole and pulled out this coin.”

Henderson paid little attention to the coin at the time; when he returned home, he put it in a drawer and all but forgot about it for the next 40 years.

 

Among the most probable of theories is that the coin dropped out of a miner’s pack as they walked along the Aboriginal trail on the way to the Hodgkinson goldfields west of Cairns.

4…………> US Skid Row: UN Report
UN report on the persistence of extreme poverty in the US concludes that is a political choice made by people in power, and also criticizes the government policy for making healthcare a privilege rather than a right. Poverty in the United States is widespread and worsening under President Donald Trump, according to a human rights investigator for the United Nations.

Philip Alston, the UN special investigator on extreme poverty, said the Trump administration appears determined to pull the social safety net out from under millions of poor people while rewarding the wealthy with tax cuts.

In his report, Alston called on the US to address the underlying problems facing the underclass rather than “punishing and imprisoning the poor.”

 

He noted that welfare benefits are being slashed and access to health care has become more difficult during Trump’s presidency. This, in conjunction with “financial windfalls” for the super-rich and big corporations,  has significantly widened the inequality gap.

Since President Lyndon Johnson’s war on poverty in the 1960s US social policy towards the poor has been “neglectful at best,” Alston said.

“But the policies pursued over the past year seem deliberately designed to remove basic protections from the poorest, punish those who are not in employment and make even basic health care into a privilege to be earned rather than a right of citizenship,” he said.

In a country of about 325 million people, nearly 41 million live in poverty — including 18.5 million in extreme poverty. Alston said children accounted for 33 percent of the poor. No other industrialized country had so many children mired in poverty, he said.

The data used to compile the UN report only covers the period through 2016, so there are no comparative figures that could measure poverty levels before and after Trump took office in January.

5…………> ISIS Aficionado: Miami
Vicente Adolfo Solano, 53, a citizen of Honduras residing in Miami, was sentenced to 210 months in prison, to be followed by a lifetime of supervised release, for attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization, after planning to detonate an explosive device at a Miami mall.  Solano pleaded guilty on March 14.

 

Solano told an individual, who later became a Confidential Human Source (CHS) for the government, that he was upset with the United States and wanted to conduct an attack in Miami.  Later, Solano told this CHS that he wanted to join ISIS.

Solano planned to place and detonate an explosive device in a crowded area of a popular Miami mall.  Solano discussed his plot with the CHS and two undercover FBI employees.  According to the complaint, Solano provided three videos to the CHS, in which Solano makes pro-ISIS statements and expresses anti-U.S. sentiments.  Just prior to his arrest, Solano took possession of what he believed was an explosive device, took steps to arm it, and walked toward a mall entrance in order to carry out his attack.  Unbeknownst to Solano, the device was inert and did not pose a risk to the public.  Solano was taken into custody prior to entering the Mall.
