Japanese Oil Tanker Owner Says ‘Flying Object’ Likely Caused Explosion, Not ‘Mine’ As U.S. Claims

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

From Common Dreams:

During a press conference just hours after the US released video footage that purported to show an Iranian boat removing an unexploded mine from the side of an oil tanker, the Japanese owner of that vessel said Friday that the ship was likely damaged by a “flying object” and called claims of a mine attack “false.”

“I do not think there was a time bomb or an object attached to the side of the ship,” Yutaka Katada, president of the Japanese company that operates the Kokuka Courageous tanker, told reporters in Tokyo.

NY Ends Religious Exemptions for Vaccines, Violating Constitutional Rights of Millions

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

In a shocking blow to both health and religious freedom, New York governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill Thursday to end religious exemptions to vaccines

In a disturbing turn of events, the NY House and Senate versions of the bill, A2371and S2994A, respectively, to strip religious exemptions, passed in rapid succession on Thursday, despite the fact that NY legislators took an oath to uphold the Constitution; namely, the NY Const Art.

FIGURES. FBI/DOJ Never Obtained the Unredacted CrowdStrike Reports on ‘Russian Hack’ of DNC Servers

by Cristina Laila, The Gateway Pundit:

The DOJ recently informed the court in a filing in response to Roger Stone’s motion to compel unredacted Crowdstrike reports that it doesn’t even posses the unredacted reports on the so-called ‘hack’ of the DNC servers.

The DNC’s lawyer provided the Crowdstrike reports to the US government with redactions and claimed the redacted parts were not relevant to the investigation.

And surprise, surprise — the FBI never looked into it.

The Democrats’ Sinister Strategy to Win in 2020

by Joaquin Flores, Strategic Culture:

The wildest single phenomenon as we come close to a clearer picture of the Democratic Party’s election strategy for 2020, is that there really isn’t a single candidate that the party has been able to coalesce around. And without this, it would appear difficult to see whether the Democrats intend to focus their strategy on flipping the Rust Belt or the Sun Belt states blue. The truth is that this really isn’t their strategy at all. It’s their strategy to talk about these strategies. But what they will rely on instead is something far more dark and sinister – something we’ve already seen and felt the ramifications of, and something every vigilant citizen needs to focus their primary concerns on.

Pentagon seeks to build global ‘consensus’ on Iran. Is it time to worry?

from RT:

The Trump administration is looking to “build international consensus” against Iran following attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. But what does that actually mean? And to what end is it used?

“The focus for myself and Ambassador Bolton and Secretary Pompeo is to build international consensus to this international problem,” acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told reporters outside the Pentagon on Friday.

Shanahan went on to say that the Pentagon would contribute to this effort by sharing intelligence with allies, as it did Friday when it released a video it claims shows Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) removing an undetonated mine from the hull of one of two tankers attacked that morning.
