Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, forge ahead with moving US Embassy | 05 Dec 2017 | President Trump on Wednesday will order the State Department to begin moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, senior administration officials said, a move that fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives but one that could inflame tensions across the Middle East. The U.S. would be the first country to move its embassy to Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians. Other countries who have diplomatic relations with Israel keep their embassies in Tel Aviv. But the embassy move would not be immediate and could take at least three or four years.

US citizens claim to have had symptoms similar to diplomats attacked in Cuba | 06 Oct 2017 | The State Department says it has received "a handful of reports" from American citizens who say they've experienced symptoms similar to those in attacks of US government workers in Havana. But the US isn't vouching for those reports. [Of course not.] The United States last week issued a travel warning that urges American travelers to stay away from Cuba. A State Department official says in the days following the travel warning, some citizens reported having similar symptoms after traveling to Cuba. [Sounds like the dry run of a new Pentagon weapon, just like the microwave experiments aka 'California wildfires.' Remember the 'wildfires' that destroyed entire homes in minutes but left the leaves on the trees and plastic swing-sets untouched?]

Wojcicki said that "bad actors" had used the video-sharing site to "mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm" actually educate others.

Add-ons in the Republican tax bill | 02 Dec 2017 | The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in the Senate in the early hours of Saturday now has to be combined with the House version passed in November to make a final law... Drilling the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge: A very non-tax related addition to the Senate bill was squeezed in that would open the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge to drilling. This is a[n insane] goal of Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, who may have promised her vote for the addition of the provision. Private jet tax break: Possibly the most unappetizing aspect of the bill is the tax break for private jet owners. The provision would exempt aircraft owners from taxes on the "maintenance and support of the aircraft owner's aircraft or flights on the aircraft owner's aircraft." Bad news for Gulf Airlines Foreign airlines such as Qatar Airways, Etihad and Emirates will face corporate tax for landing in US airspace [Good!], ending a tax exemption for the airlines.
/POL/- Q Clearance Anon - Is it #happening? | 03 Nov 2017 | (Video)
Why Flynn's plea is a dead end for 'Russiagate' conspiracy | 01 Dec 2017 | President Donald Trump's short-lived national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. Most US media jumped on the plea as proof of Trump's collusion with Russia. Actual documents, however, tell a different story. A court document signed by special counsel Robert Mueller, dated Thursday, specifies two instances of Flynn telling FBI investigators things that were not true. They relate to two conversations he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in December 2016. In the Statement of Offense [!?!] signed by Flynn at his court appearance on Friday, he admitted to acting on instructions from a senior "Presidential Transition Team" (PTT) official, prompting breathless speculation if that was Trump himself, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, or someone else altogether. The one question nobody seems to be asking is, "So what?" [Oh, believe me, I'm asking it!]
Michael Flynn pleads guilty to lying to FBI in Mueller['s deep-state] probe | 01 Dec 2017 | Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday in federal court to a charge of making false statements to the FBI about his communications with Russia. A two-page charging document filed Thursday lists two false statements Flynn made about his interactions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in late December 2016. It says Flynn falsely claimed that he had not asked Kislyak on Dec. 29 "to refrain from escalating the situation in response to sanctions that the U.S. had imposed against Russia," and that he didn't recall Kislyak telling him Russia had decided to moderate its response as a result of his request. [Why wasn't (unindicted 9/11 co-conspirator) James Comey prosecuted for leaking to the media? General Flynn had a meeting - *so what?*]
