Trump Tweeted He Wants 5G and 6G in America As Soon As Possible!
A federal judge in Texas ruled late Friday that the male-only
military draft is unconstitutional, declaring that “the time has
passed” for a debate whether women belong in combat.
US District Judge Gray Miller, a George W. Bush appointee, dealt a
huge blow to the current Selective Service System since the SCOTUS
upheld the draft in a 1981 ruling.
In Rostker v. Goldberg, the Supreme Court ruled that the all-male
draft was “fully justified” because women could not fulfill combat
USA Today reported:
U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ruled late Friday that
while historical restrictions on women serving in combat “may have
justified past discrimination,” men and women are now equally able to
fight. In 2015, the Pentagon lifted all restrictions for women in
The case was brought by the National Coalition For Men, a men’s
rights group, and two men who argued the all-male draft was unfair.
Men who fail to register with the Selective Service System at their
18th birthday can be denied public benefits such as federal employment
and student loans. Women cannot register for Selective Service.
The ruling comes as an 11-member commission is studying the future of
the draft, including whether women should be included or whether there
should continue to be draft registration at all.
The National Commission on Military, National and Public Service
released an interim report last month giving no hints on where it would
come down on those questions. But, commission chairman Joe Heck told USA
TODAY, “I don’t think we will remain with the status quo.”
The lawyer representing the two men who brought the lawsuit said,
“Either they need to get rid of the draft registration, or they need to
require women to do the same thing that men do.”
Gray Miller’s ruling was a declaration, not an injunction which means
the court did not specifically say how the government should change the
Selective Service System, USA Today reported.
The left has been pushing to put women in all-male combat units for years.
Federal prosecutors in Florida violated the rights of victims by secretly reaching a non-prosecution agreement with a wealthy financier accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, a federal judge ruled Thursday.
Ten years after convicted Palm Beach sex offender Jeffrey Epstein escaped federal charges in connection with allegations that he paid dozens of teenage girls for sex, the FBI last week released what appears to be an explosive explanation for what many have long described as a sweetheart deal.

in one of dozens of heavily redacted, decade-old memos that were
unexpectedly and inexplicably posted on an FBI website known as “The
The simple declaration stunned those who have been
following the tortuous and celebrity-studded case for years. It
rekindled talk that the billionaire’s 2008 decision to plead guilty to
state charges to make the federal investigation disappear was part of a
cover up to protect Epstein’s high-powered friends, including President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew.
sentence obviously means something but I, too, am at a loss as to what
it really means,” said attorney Brad Edwards, who for a decade has been
trying to unravel the mystery of Epstein’s plea deal. “If there was some
cooperation I would have expected that we would have been told.
However, nothing surprises me at this point.”
recent years, federal prosecutors have offered various explanations for
why they agreed to drop the case they were building against the
65-year-old enigmatic money manager if he pleaded guilty to state
prostitution charges. In court papers, they have said they wanted to get
justice for Epstein’s young victims but worried a jury wouldn’t believe
So, they have said, they negotiated a deal, allowing
Epstein to plead guilty in Palm Beach County Circuit Court to one count
of soliciting a minor for prostitution and another charge of soliciting
prostitution. In exchange, federal prosecutors agreed to close their
investigation. They have said they had no idea Epstein would only serve
13 months of an 18-month sentence in a vacant wing of the county
stockade — a cell he was allowed to leave 16 hours a day, six days a
While voicing dismay at his lax punishment, prosecutors have
pointed out that the plea deal required Epstein to pay the roughly 30
young women who filed civil lawsuits against him. Further, they said his
guilty pleas force him to register as a sex offender for the rest of
his life, potentially protecting other girls from abuse in the future.
However, over the years, they have never suggested that Epstein provided them any information in return.
Like Edwards, two people close to the long-closed federal
investigation said they were flummoxed by the sentence in the FBI’s memo
that was written in September 2008, roughly two months after Epstein
pleaded guilty in state court.
“I have never, ever heard of
Jeffrey Epstein cooperating in any sense of the word,” said one
official, who requested anonymity because of the top role the person
played in the investigation. “I am stumped. It’s totally out of left
Another individual with ties to the case voiced similar views.
Epstein may have been required to talk to FBI agents but it’s unlikely
he offered anything that would incriminate others, said the person, who
declined to be identified because of ongoing efforts to help Epstein’s
victims challenge the plea deal. “I don’t think he ever told the truth,”
the person said.
Summary by JW Williams
The Greyzone Project published an article on Juan Guaido, who declared himself the President of Venezuela. He leads ‘Popular Will’, the most violent faction of Venezuela’s opposition party. His party, however, has less than 20% support because of its violent tactics.
In 2005, five Venezuelan student leaders trained in Serbia to bring about a revolt that eventually toppled Slobodan Milosevic. They used a revolutionary model that uses student shock troops to weaponize protests as a hybrid form of warfare. The movement is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy, a CIA front group, and is deployed against regimes that are not compliant with US objectives.
In 2010, ‘Popular Will’ exploited a severe drought that affected electrical output and caused discontent. At this same time, it and other opposition groups were receiving $40-50 million a year from US government organizations like USAID and the National Endowment for Democracy, according to a Spanish think tank.President Trump appointed Elliot Abrams as special US envoy to Venezuela. This stoked fears of a bloody proxy war, because Abrams is the convicted Iran-Contra felon who oversaw arming right-wing death squads during the 1980’s in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Guatemala.
Vice President Mike Pence has been involved in the overthrow of Maduro since before December 2018 when he called to affirm his support for Gauido who organized mass protests against Maduro following his victory in the election.
Guaido is meeting with VP Mike Pence on Monday as part of a summit with the Lima Group, a meeting of 12 American states which have recognized Guaido as the “legitimate” leader of Venezuela.
Over the weekend, at least four people were killed and many more injured in clashes at the border, blockaded by Maduro’s military, as the US tried to deliver humanitarian aid. Three aid trucks caught fire at the Colombian border. In the town of Santa Elena de Uairén, pro-government armed gangs and national guard members took to the streets to try and disperse opposition supporters. Sixty members of Maduro’s security force defected, but it was not enough to deliver the aid. Caracas has reportedly allowed in hundreds of tons of Russian and other international aid and supplies.
Venezuela’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza blamed Secretary of State and former CIA boss Mike Pompeo for staging a false flag when a truck carrying US aid was burned.
Maduro says US aid was meant to destabilize his government as military transport planes have been landing in US ally Colombia airstrips, as part of broader efforts provoke a coup.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News that Maduro regime’s days are “numbered” and that “every option” is on the table toward making that happen.

Sen Kamala Harris (D-Calif) is on the record as backing “some form of reparations” for slavery. In a recent interview, Harris
agreed with the host’s suggestion that government reparations for black
Americans were necessary to address past discrimination. The 2020
presidential hopeful later “affirmed that support” in a statement to The New York Times.
“We have to be honest that people in
this country do not start from the same place or have access to the same
opportunities,” she said in an interview with “The Breakfast Club.”
Well look, I think that we have got to address that again, it’s back to
the inequities. There, through–look, America has a history of 200 years
of slavery. We had Jim Crow. We had legal segregation in America for a
very long time. The Voting Rights Act was only strong for 50 years and
then they wiped it out with this United States Supreme Court in the
Shelby decision, to the point that 22 states immediately thereafter put
in place laws that one court found were crafted with surgical precision
to have black people not be able to vote.
So we’ve got to recognize,
back to that earlier point, people aren’t starting out on the same base,
in terms of their ability to succeed and so we have got to recognize
that and give people a lift up. And, there are a number of ways to do
it. Part of my initiative again around the “Lift Act” is that same
point–you lifting people up who are making less than a hundred thousand
dollars a year. What I want to do about rent is the same thing. What we
need to do around education and understanding disparities, what we need
to do around HBCUs. But we have a history of racism in America.
Harris doesn’t owe anyone in America, but does she have some mea culpas to make in Jamaica? Her father, Donald
J. Harris, wrote an extensive essay about the family’s heritage in
Jamaica at Jamaican Global Online in January, claiming to be the
descendant of a famed slave owner.
My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss
Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on
record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to
my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and
educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The
Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris,
land-owner and agricultural “produce” exporter (mostly pimento or
all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in
the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown
built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism,
was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).
Brown was born in 1776 in Ireland. He became a sugar plantation owner
and founder of Brown’s Town in Jamaica, according to university papers,
textbooks, and historical documents. Henry Whiteley wrote a pamphlet entitled “Three months in Jamaica in 1832, Comprising a Residence on a Sugar Plantation,” where he describes Brown’s views on his slaves:
The same day I dined at St. Ann’s Bay, on board the vessel I arrived
in, in the company with several colonists, among whom was Mr. Hamilton
Brown, representative for the parish of St. Ann in the Colonial
Assembly… I was rather startled to hear that gentleman swear by his
Maker that that Order should never be adopted in Jamaica; nor would the
planters of Jamaica, he said, permit the interference of the Home
Government with their slaves in any shape. A great deal was said by him
and others present about the happiness and comfort enjoyed by the
slaves, and the many advantages possessed by them of which the poor in
England were destitute. Among other circumstances mentioned in proof of
this, Mr. Robinson, a wharfinger, stated that a slave in that town had
sent out printed cards to invite a part of his negro acquaintance to a
supper party. One of these cards was handed to Mr. Hamilton Brown, who
said he would present it to the Governor, as a proof of the comfortable
condition of the slave population.
But later that day, after he witnessed slaves being punished by Brown’s overseer…
A pair of Chinese twins who were gene-edited for resistance to HIV may also have ‘supercharged’ brains, along with possible resistance to age-related cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
In a controversial experiment led by Chinese scientist He Jiankui,
the embroys of seven couples had their genes “edited” using a tool known
as CRISPR. By removing a gene called CCR5, He sought to create a
natural immunity to HIV – which requires CCR5 to enter blood cells.
Based on new research, however, twins Lulu and Nana may have also been left with improved memory and enhanced cognition, according to MIT Technology Review. They may also enjoy some degree of protection from Alzheimer’s Disease and other maladies which are rapidly being linked to chronic inflammation,
as some groups of mice without CCR5 – or who have been given CCR5
inhibitors, experience less severe dementia or Alzheimer’s symptoms.
“The answer is
likely yes, it did affect their brains,” says UCLA neurobiologist Alcino
J. Silva, whose lap discovered a link between CCR5 and the brain’s
ability to form new connections.
“The simplest interpretation is that those mutations will probably
have an impact on cognitive function in the twins,” says Silva, adding
that the exact effect on the girls’ cognition cannot be predicted, which is “why it should not be done.”
Jiankui’s human experiments drew harsh rebuke after news of Lulu and
Nana’s birth in late October or early November, and has reportedly been
fired from his position at the Southern University of Science and
Technology (SUSTech) in Shenzhen, China. Jiankui says there are more
gene-edited babies on the way.
