A human rights group is accusing the United States of waging a shadow air war in Somalia that is killing civilians with abandon.
Amnesty International issued its findings on the African war Tuesday evening in a report titled The Hidden US War in Somalia (pdf).
The U.S. has been covertly engaging in conflicts in Somalia for decades, but in April 2017, the Donald Trump administration upped airstrikes and attacks targeted at the rebel group Al-Shabaab.

This text program was created under Obama and like all spectacular acts of tyranny, it is being used on American citizens by the following administration.
Washington, D.C. — This week, on Oct. 3, every single cellphone in the United States will receive a text message from president Donald Trump and there is no way to stop it.
While it likely won’t be the case for future alerts, Wednesday’s test text message will not have anything to do with politics. Instead, it is a nationwide test of a new system called a “presidential alert” which was recently created and will be implemented by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Two weeks after Chase Bank announced that it would no longer do business with Proud Boys Chairman Enrique Tarrio, Conservative performance artist and Rebel Media personality Martina Markota has become the latest conservative media figure to be targeted by the bank which has made no secret of its support for liberal causes (see its decision to cut ties with the gun industry).

It was always folly to believe that inflating asset bubbles could solve the structural problems of a post-industrial economy.
The Doomsday Scenario for the stock and housing bubbles is simple: the Fed’s magic fails. When dropping interest rates to zero and flooding the financial sector with loose money fail to ignite the economy and reflate the deflating bubbles, punters will realize the Fed’s magic only worked the first three times: three bubbles and the game is over.
So what happens when punters realize there won’t be a fourth bubble? They sell. Bids disappear because who’s dumb enough to bet (with Japan and Europe as lessons) that more liquidity and negative interest rates will magically work when zero interest rates didn’t move the needle?
The New York Times‘ newest editorial board member, Sarah Jeong, was outed as a bigot yesterday after dozens of tweets from less than four years ago were unearthed, revealing extreme hatred of white people.
“Her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her a subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers.” -NYT
First They Came For Infowars……. Tomorrow We Will All Be Alex Jones: Independent Media Silenced – They Are Coming For Us All Now
by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
The same liberal media that has been bitterly whining about their First Amendment right of a free press for the last week, claiming that is somehow endangered because rally attendees screamed #CNNSUCKS at them, are now celebrating the decision by Facebook to permanently remove Alex Jones and InfoWars pages from their platform on the same day that Apple has removed the entire library for five of Infowars’ six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps.
This comes just days after YouTube removed multiple Alex Jones videos and gave him a community strike for alleged “hate speech,” which is the catch-all excuse being used by Apple, Facebook, and Spotify as their justification to silence him. A YouTube strike effectively prevents Jones from livestreaming his broadcasts on the platform. (I just clicked the Alex Jones Channel on YouTube, and received the message “This account has been terminated for violating YouTube’s community standards.”)

Have you noticed that all of your electronic carriers are saying that they are restructuring their copyright and privacy because of a change in European Internet laws. What they should be telling you is that Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc, plan to block you from posting anything if you are not a preferred liberal.
Watch this video, it will scare the hell out of you. Click it twice, because the video gives the illusion that it does not work and youtube has taken it down. It works.
