  1. Iraqi Parliament Prepares to Evict US Troops US military's presence in Iraq falling out of favor across several political blocs Jason Ditz Posted onMarch 20, 2019CategoriesNewsTagsIraq, Pentagon In the wake of the ISIS War in Iraq, Pentagon officials will tell you what they’ve been saying all along, that America’s intention is to stay in Iraq, and that there is no consideration being given to leaving. It’s not clear the US has spoken to the Iraqi government about this, however. While many Iraqis accepted the offer of help in the more desperate moments of the ISIS War, the US military has quickly worn out its welcome. Across a number of major political blocs in Iraq, there is growing consensus that the US, and indeed all foreign military forces, need to go. This has been brewing for months. The Iraqis saw Trump’s visit to Iraq, during which he didn’t meet the Iraqi PM, as a sign of disrespect. That the Pentagon keeps insisting they’re staying in Iraq, without asking the Iraqis, only adds to the sense that the US isn’t really an invited guest in any real sense. Hawks are already trying to spin this, as with everything else that doesn’t go America’s way in Iraq, as Iran’s fault. Iraq’s political scene is dominated by Shi’ite parties, and US officials have plenty of practice pretending that Shi’ite is just a fancy word for “Iranian” these days. Yet this underpins one of the major reasons the US is on the outs with so much of the Iraqi parliament. US hostility toward Iran has meant practical hostility toward Iraqi Shi’ite militias who fought against ISIS and enjoy strong support from the Iraqi government. US ultimatums to disarm militias that are practically part of the Iraqi government have always come with the implied threat of the US leaving, when they never had any intention of doing so. And now, when hostility to the Shi’ite militias has turned parliament against them, US hawks are still trying to spin this as proof of an Iran problem, In reality, the US and Iran have been backing the same parties in Iraq since 2003, and US discomfort with that fact has been consistently undermining their goals. https://news.antiwar.com/2019/03/20/iraqi-parliament-prepares-to-evict-us-troops/

  4. GOOD NEWS! US War Hero – Army Sgt. Derrick Miller – To Be Released from Leavenworth Prison For several years The Gateway Pundit has reported on the plight of Sgt. Derrick Miller who sits in prison for life in Leavenworth, Kansas. Today we are pleased to announce that Sgt. Miller will soon be released from prison! U.S. Army National Guardsman Sgt. Derrick Miller,an American hero, from Hagerstown, Maryland, was convicted in July of 2011 for the pre-meditated murder of an Afghan man in 2010. Sgt. Miller is father of two little girls. At the time of the shooting of the Afghan man, Sgt. Miller was assigned to a unit within the Connecticut National Guard and was attached to the 101st Airborne Division. Following his joining of the National Guard in 2006, Miller experienced three combat deployments and had been recently promoted. Sgt. Miller is currently serving life in prison with the opportunity for parole in 2020. Sgt. Miller shot and killed an Afghan civilian following the civilian attempting to grab Sgt. Miller’s weapon during a period of intense questioning. The Afghan civilian was a suspected insurgent that was walking through Sgt. Miller’s “platoon defensive perimeter observing their defensive positions”. Following the shooting, Sgt. Miller’s unit was attacked horrifically on all sides and the Afghan National Army fighters that were assigned to stay with the platoon disappeared prior to the onset of the firefight. They hid behind a building. Sgt. Miller was embroiled in a firefight the night he killed the Afghan man. The Afghan man was an insurgent and yet no one in the military wants to say this and directly confront the duplicitous Afghanis. The firefight was not instigated by American soldiers; the firefight was meant to kill American soldiers, and Afghan National Army fighters were nowhere to be found. As far as the case goes, the witnesses opposing Sgt. Miller are suspicious on two accounts. The first witness was a soldier that originally backed up the claims made by Sgt. Miller regarding the event, but when threatened with being named as an accessory and “being placed on legal hold so he could not de-mobilize”, he changed his story. The other witness was an Afghan translator that was promised citizenship in the U.S. in exchange for testimony. This man was brought to the U.S. in January of 2011 and lived on Fort Campbell in a hotel on the base at $630 per month with a van dedicated to his transportation wherever he wanted to go – all of this was on the taxpayer dime. Morality is void in this case, save for the morality of Sgt. Miller. All of Sgt. Miller’s men returned home unharmed from their deployment. Sgt. Miller instead went to Leavenworth where he is serving a life sentence after being charged with pre-meditated murder on the battlefield. It was at this time that Congressman Louie Gohmert and Congressman Brian Babin, both Texas Congressmen, became aware of Sgt. Miller’s incarceration. From that point forward, they fought for Derrick’s release and we are beholden to them for all they did for this American Son. For a reference to the moments quoted in this article, please visit Diana West’s 2011 piece on this exact topic here. On Wednesday news broke that Sgt. Derrick Miller will be released from Leavenworth. This is wonderful news for all the patriots who worked to free this American hero. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/03/good-news-us-war-hero-army-sgt-derrick-miller-to-be-released-from-leavenworth-prison/
  5. About Frekin' Time! Female HS student files civil rights complaint: 'I felt very violated' changing in locker room when transgender student was 'looking at me. Attorneys for a female Pennsylvania high school student filed a federal complaint last week alleging her privacy was violated and that she was subjected to sexual harassment when a transgender student was using the same locker room, WNEP-TV reported. The Honesdale High School incident occurred at the beginning of this school year, according to the complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Education's Civil Rights Division, the station said. http://www.yourdestinationnow.com/2019/03/female-hs-student-files-civil-rights.html
  6. Kamala Harris accused of refusing to prosecute Podesta-linked company in exchange for bribes Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris is being slammed by Latino activists for refusing to investigate the Ponzi scheme operated by nutritional supplement marketer Herbalife in exchange for what amounts to bribes masquerading as “donations” from Herbalife lobbyist Heather Podesta. At the time, Harris was the attorney general of California. Heather Podesta was married to Tony Podesta, the high-powered lobbyist with longstanding ties to Hillarious Clinton. Tony’s brother John Podesta was the campaign manager for Hillarious 2016 presidential campaign. https://www.bizpacreview.com/2019/03/19/huge-injustice-kamala-harris-accused-refusing-to-prosecute-podesta-linked-company-in-exchange-for-bribes-734717?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=BPR Email&utm_campaign=DMS

Polar bear numbers may have quadrupled in the last 50 years, according to a new book critiquing the alarmist predictions of polar bear population collapse. “My scientific estimates make perfect sense and they tally with what the Inuit and other Arctic residents are seeing on the ground,” Susan Crockford, a Canadian zoologist, said in a statement Tuesday on her book’s release. https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/19/polar-bears-arctic-ice/
  10. The $1.1 billion spent to repair Oroville Dam is failing as water is seeping through the rebuilt spillway threatens new mass evacuations over the risk of the dam collapsing. According to national dam expert Scott Cahill of Watershed Services of Ohio, Oroville Dam is on the same failure track as in 2017, with visible water seepage trickling from the foot of the dam and dozens of points along the dam's principal spillway. Cahill warns that warming temperatures magnified by precipitation is a growing threat to the dam. American Thinker reported on March 1 that the Sierra snow pack was at a record 113 inches, but another 44 inches fell in the next 10 days. With temperatures spiking this week to 75 degrees in the valleys and 41 degrees in the high mountains, dam inflows are running twice the outflows, and the water levels rose from 800 to 839 feet. As America's tallest earthen dam with a 770-foot face and 901-foot top of the spillway, the lake behind the Oroville Dam can hold 3.5 million acre-feet of water. Its viability is a crucial element for the effectiveness of California's system of 1,250 flood-control dams. The last time the water level rose to 815 feet in February 2017 and engineers began opening eight huge spillway gates to allow 100,000 acre-feet per second to race down the face of the dam, the spillway's midsection began seeping water at many points.

  11. NZ POLICE "HAPPENED TO BE IN A TRAINING SESSION" WHEN MOSQUE SHOOTING BEGAN It took police officers in New Zealand 36 minutes to catch the terrorist who murdered 50 people in two Christchurch mosques last week. Dramatic footage shows that just two officers—only one of whom had a gun—apprehend the suspect after his bloody rampage. We are now learning that this response time would have been longer, but police happened to be conducting a drill nearby practicing for a similar attack. In what can be described as an extremely strange “coincidence,” Chris Cahill, a detective inspector who is president of a local labor union for police officers, explained that officers were involved in a drill near the city center when the shooting broke out. According to the NY Times, “Any police force in the world — to get to the scene in six minutes, a specialist team there in 10 — that would be a success,” Mr. Cahill said. Police in New Zealand don’t typically carry firearms, much less dress in tactical gear, so officers holding a drill with all their tactical equipment and weapons at the ready was a helpful coincidence indeed. For those who may be unaware, the significance of the drill is important due to the fact that most terror attacks in recent history have coincided with drills very similar to the actual terrorism that unfolds. In November of 2015, during the tragic attacks on Paris, it was later reported that Paris-area emergency personnel and ambulance crews were taking part in a simulated emergency exercise on the very same day. The exact nature of the drill was a simulated mass shooting attack, according to Dr. Mathieu Raux, emergency room chief at the Pitié-Salpetrière hospital in Paris. Also, during the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., North American Aerospace Defense Command’s (NORAD) was in the midst of a training exercise called Vigilant Guardian, which “coincidentally” simulated planes being hijacked by terrorists. A story in Aviation Week made clear the connection between the 9/11 attacks and the NORAD drills taking place at virtually the same moment: As if these two events weren’t a strange enough “coincidence,” the London subway attacks on 7/7 also encompassed drills happening only days prior to that terrorist attack. A report by the Daily Mail stated: It seems odd that some of the most prolific terror attacks in recent history all share this common thread. This tragic event in New Zealand is already being used to go after free speech and gun rights. The New Zealand government began arresting people for sharing the video of the shooter’s live stream as well as pushing new gun laws. Another particularly strange coincidence is the fact that 30 survivors of the Parkland shooting traveled to Christchurch last July. The purpose of that trip, according to Sandi Davis, a sociology teacher at Stoneman Douglas, was a way to help the students cope with the tragedy they experienced and also as a way for them to learn how to sustain the anti-gun violence movement they had begun in the Parkland shooting’s aftermath. https://www.blacklistednews.com/article/71668/nz-police-happened-to-be-in-a-training-session-when-mosque-shooting.html
