9/11 - The Footage They Didn't Let You See Twice (9/11 2001 Documentary) | 12 Sept 2017 | June 2001 - CIA and NORAD use drones (remotely-controlled aircraft) to practice hijackings of airliners flown into buildings... Minutes before the first demolition, explosions in the lobby filled it with white smoke. (Forty minutes after impact.) Pre-weakening is essential in demolitions. That smoke is much more visible seconds before demolition, as seen here... Loud cutter-charge explosion sounds heard near WTC 7. (Video)
Stephen Paddock had $1.3million held across fourteen bank accounts when he allegedly launched deadly shooting spree --When police raided his hotel room following shooting they found 41,000 worth of weapons and firearm accessories | 09 Sept 2018 | The [alleged] Las Vegas gunman had more than 1.3million held in separate bank accounts at the time of his shooting spree. Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, also owned a shocking collection of weapons and firearm accessories, found in his home and his Mandalay Bay hotel room where he launched his attack, worth 62,000. Las Vegas police said Paddock kept his m-ney in 14 bank accounts and in his last two years of life he splashed out 1.5million, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. It's not clear whether authorities will sell his arsenal of weapons, which is still in FBI custody. The filing only mentioned 13 accounts but Las Vegas police previously reported he had 14 bank accounts. It's not clear why there's a discrepancy in the number of bank accounts reported. [Apparently, being a weapons dealer for the CIA/FBI pays very well...until you're just the latest false flag patsy.]
Two health scares at U.S. airports tied to Mecca pilgrims - U.S. officials | 07 Sept 2018 | Two major health scares at U.S. airports involving inbound flights are related to pilgrims returning from the Hajj, the Muslim pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, which ended in late August, U.S. health officials said on Friday. On Wednesday, U.S. health officials sent an emergency response team with mobile diagnostic equipment to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York after they were told that more than 100 passengers aboard an Emirates airlines flight from Dubai were experiencing flu-like symptoms. Dr. Martin Cetron, director for the division of Global Migration and Quarantine at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told Reuters in a telephone interview that health officials evaluated nearly 549 passengers at the airport, and sent a total of 11 people to a local hospital for more testing.

The move is a final warning to platform holders... who deploy encryption to guarantee user privacy on their services. However, the Five Eyes governments don't see it this way, agreeing that encryption instead poses a significant challenge to combating serious crimes and terrorism.
Twitter bans Alex Jones and InfoWars | 06 Sept 2018 | Twitter banned right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his website InfoWars from its platform Thursday afternoon, a month after several of its Silicon Valley counterparts did so. Jones was suspended from Twitter for one week last month after he posted a video in which he said, "Now is time to act on the enemy before they do a false flag." But Twitter did not ban him from its platform then, even after YouTube, Apple and Facebook each kicked him off. Twitter also said that it "will take action" if in the future it discovers other accounts being used to get around the ban of Jones and InfoWars.

[They are.] In a statement issued right after executives from Facebook and Twitter finished testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the Department of Justice (DOJ) also suggested that the platforms were running afoul of antitrust laws. [That, too.] ...Twitter CEO [Deep State scum-bag] Jack Dorsey will face a second grilling later Wednesday from lawmakers in the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where he is expected to face questions on the allegations of conservative censorship.
Pence denies discussing invoking 25th Amendment against Trump | 08 Sept 2018 | Vice President Pence denied that any discussions have taken place in the White House about the possibility of removing President Trump by invoking the 25th Amendment in a new interview with CBS News set to air Sunday. Asked whether any such discussions had taken place between members of Trump's Cabinet, Pence was adamant that none had occurred. "No, never. And why would we be, Margaret?" Pence asked CBS's Margaret Brennan on "Face the Nation." Pence's remarks follow an anonymous op-ed from a "senior [Trump] administration official," published this week in The New York Times, that detailed a "resistance" within the administration dedicated to "thwarting" the president's "worst inclinations."
The Obvious Suspect --The quest to unmask the New York Times op-ed writer has been filled with speculation. But the article's prose points to one person in particular. | 07 Sept 2018 | Who wrote the anonymous op-ed against President Trump in Wednesday's New York Times? All we know for certain is what the Times disclosed: that it's a "senior official in the Trump administration." But the most likely author, based on the op-ed's content and style, is the U.S. ambassador to Russia, [Deep State dirt-bag] Jon Huntsman. Huntsman is an obvious suspect for several reasons...And the article's stated motive--"Americans should know that there are adults in the room"--matches a letter that Huntsman wrote to the Salt Lake Tribune in July. In the letter, Huntsman, responding to a columnist who thought the ambassador should resign rather than keep working for Trump, explained that public servants such as himself were dutifully attending to the nation's business.
Rand Paul: Trump would be 'justified' in using 'lie-detector' tests to find anonymous author | 06 Sept 2018 | Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said Thursday afternoon that he believes President Trump would be justified in using lie detector tests to figure out which senior administrative official wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed. The Washington Examiner confirmed Paul's comments with the senator's communications director, Sergio Gor. The Times published an anonymous op-ed Wednesday that described members of the Trump administration working "diligently" to stop the president's "worst impulses" and move against parts of his agenda. The author claimed not to be working alone and that the group is acting because they believe their primary duty is to protect the country.
I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration By Anonymous | 05 Sept 2018 | President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader. It's not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trump's leadership... The dilemma -- which he does not fully grasp -- is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations... Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until -- one way or another -- it's over.
Trump expected to declassify Carter Page and Bruce Ohr documents | 09 Sept 2018 | President Trump is expected to declassify, as early as this week, documents covering the U.S. government's surveillance of Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the investigative activities of senior Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr, according to allies of the president. Republicans on the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees believe the declassification will permanently taint the Trump-Russia investigation by showing the investigation was illegitimate to begin with... They allege that Bruce Ohr played an improper intermediary role between the Justice Department, British spy Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS -- the opposition research firm that produced the Trump-Russia dossier, funded by Democrats. (Ohr's wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS on Russia-related matters during the presidential election -- a fact that Ohr did not disclose on federal forms.) And they further allege that the Obama administration improperly spied on Carter Page -- all to take down Trump.
12 House Republicans call on Trump to declassify Russia probe FISA documents | 07 Sept 2018 | A dozen Republican members of Congress on Thursday called on President Trump to declassify key documents related to the FBI's probe of Russian actions during the 2016 presidential election, including an application for a renewed surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The lawmakers, led by Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., also demanded the release of 12 FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr. Zeldin said he was "confident" that the reports, known as 302s, "contain critically important information that should have been provided to the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA] court, but wasn't."
Ex-Trump adviser George Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in prison | 07 Sept 2018 | George Papadopoulos, the Trump campaign adviser who triggered the Russia investigation, was sentenced to 14 days behind bars on Friday. At the hearing, he told a federal judge that he was "deeply embarrassed and ashamed" for lying to the FBI and acknowledged that his actions could have hindered their work. "I made a dreadful mistake, but I am a good man who is eager for redemption," Papadopoulos said at his sentencing. Special counsel Robert Mueller's team pushed for a prison sentence of up to six months, while defense attorneys asked for probation.

Senate lets Kavanaugh hearings continue after brief clash | 05 Sept 2018 | Senate leaders found a way to let Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing continue into the night, after a brief floor clash between Republicans and Democrats. Earlier, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had objected to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s request for the committee to continue meeting after 2 p.m. But McConnell, using a parliamentary maneuver, adjourned the Senate for the day -- because committees can meet as long as they like when the Senate is not in session.
Kavanaugh grilled by Dems on abortion and guns, as protesters disrupt hearing | 05 Sept 2018 | Senate Democrats grilled Judge Brett Kavanaugh on abortion, guns and other issues Wednesday, getting down to substance after an opening day of partisan fireworks -- even as protesters continued to disrupt his confirmation hearing. Kavanaugh, President Trump's pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, appeared for the second day of his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. It's the first day senators have to question Kavanaugh.
Trump says he could use military to build wall if Congress won't fund it through Homeland Security's budget --Trump won't rule out another government shutdown | 07 Sept 2018 | President Donald Trump said Friday that he's considering using military resources to finish construction of his long-promised border wall instead of relying on Congress to fund the project through the Homeland Security Department's budget. He also wouldn't eliminate the possibility of a government shutdown if Democrats continue to confound his efforts to appropriate m-ney for the project on the U.S.-Mexico border. 'We have two options,' he told DailyMail dot com aboard Air Force One as he flew from Billings, Montana to Fargo, North Dakota. 'We have military, we have homeland security.'
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he won't seek reelection --'This has been the job of a lifetime,' Emanuel said at a surprise news conference. | 04 Sept 2018 | Chicago Mayor [useless eater and Deep State dirt-bag] Rahm Emanuel made a surprise announcement on Tuesday that he will not seek reelection to a third term, opening up the city's venerable Fifth Floor to an outsider candidate for the first time in decades. The former three-term congressman and chief of staff for former President Barack Obama has been mayor of Chicago for the last eight years, and has faced heavy criticism over the high level of violence that has afflicted the city. The mayor had already been campaigning for a third term, but his unpopularity had drawn an unusually high number of challengers.

Michael Capuano in a Democratic primary Tuesday in the latest shakeup of the House Democratic caucus by a left-wing challenger.

Pressley, who will not face a Republican challenger in November, becomes the first African-American woman elected to Congress from the Commonwealth.
More than Florence: The Latest on Helene, Isaac, Olivia, Paul, and Mangkhut | 09 Sept 2018 | Hurricane Florence will be deservedly in the spotlight this week, but there are other threats roaming the Atlantic and Pacific as the Northern Hemisphere hurricane season hits a seasonal crescendo. With rapid intensification forecast, Florence is predicted by the National Hurricane Center to reach the North Carolina coast on Thursday as one the strongest landfalls so far north in U.S. history. Massive rains could occur for days afterward. In the meantime, there’s plenty else to track in the tropics, including a hurricane and a typhoon that will both affect U.S. territory.

On Sunday evening, the National Hurricane Center was forecasting Florence to become a strong Category 4 just prior to making landfall somewhere on the Southeast or Mid-Atlantic coast on Thursday.
