Hollywood stars took to social media Wednesday to express outrage over President Donald Trump’s announcement that transgender people will not be allowed to serve in the U.S. military, reversing former President Obama’s decision last year allowing them to do so.

“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” President Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical cost and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you.”

The news spurred some stars to viciously attack the president, with some calling Trump a cruel bigot.

Star Trek actor and gay activist George Takei sent what appeared to be a threat to Trump, warning that he “just pissed off the wrong community” and said the president “will regret” this action.

Takei also tweeted: “History shall record that you are not only the stupidest, most incompetent president ever, but also the cruelest and pettiest. #Shame.” The actor also issued a call to action:

*(FROM THE RELIGION OF PEACE) – Calais migrants ‘hijack truck after attacking British driver with brick’

Screen Shot 2017-07-26 at 2.39.09 PM

A British truck driver was attacked and left for dead in Calais, northern France, when migrants hijacked his vehicle in a bid to enter the UK, it has been reported.

*

The incident comes as Human Rights Watch released a report condemning the “routine” abuse of asylum seekers by French police.

Hundreds of migrants have returned to the Calais area in recent months despite the demolition of the sprawling camp known as ‘the Jungle.’

*

With conflicts and instability still blighting the Middle East and Africa, and British authorities facing criticism for failing to offer asylum seekers safe and legal passage, the pull factors bringing migrants to the French coast have not changed.

According to the Road Haulage Association (RHA), the British driver had stopped on the A16 motorway outside Calais, near Marck, when he noticed migrants trying to climb into his truck.

When he exited the vehicle to inspect the damage, he was attacked by the group who hit him over the head with a brick, stole his truck and drove off towards the port in a bid to get into the UK.

Their attempt failed when the vehicle was stopped by police before reaching the port.

The RHA says the attack on the unnamed driver, who is now recovering in hospital with a serious head injury, “comes as a stark warning to UK-bound hauliers that migrants will stop at nothing to reach our shores.” 

“This latest method of hijacking is a new one and clearly shows that the desperation of migrants to get to the UK has reached new heights,” RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said.

Charlie Elphicke, Tory MP for Dover, said the “sickening attack” shows the extreme measures people will take to get into Britain.

“Whether it’s using small aircraft or using lorries, trafficking gangs are using even more disturbing tactics to smuggle migrants across the English Channel. That’s why we need a crackdown on these ruthless people traffickers and end their evil trade of modern slavery,” he told the Daily Express.

In May, British truck drivers called for increased protection in Calais following the first serious attacks by migrants since the demolition of ‘the Jungle.’

A Polish driver was killed on one of the main approach roads to Calais last month after migrants reportedly dragged tree trunks ontop the A16 motorway in a bid to slow traffic and break into vehicles bound for Britain.

Migrants are not the only ones committing violence. The latest incident comes as Human Rights Watch released a report saying French police in Calais routinely abuse migrants and the authorities turn a blind eye in the hope they will leave the northern coast town.

The 40-page report, ‘Like Living In Hell,’ finds that police forces in Calais often use pepper spray on child and adult migrants while they are sleeping or in other situations where they pose no threat.

The report says police often confiscate sleeping bags, blankets and clothing, and have sometimes used pepper spray on migrants’ food and water to make it inedible.

“Such acts violate the prohibition on inhuman and degrading treatment as well as international standards on police conduct,” HRW said.

“Local and national authorities should immediately and unequivocally direct police to adhere to international standards on the use of force and to refrain from conduct that interferes with aid delivery.”

Regional prefect Fabien Sudry dismissed the report, saying the accusations were unfounded. Any use of force by police was done in a proportionate fashion, he told Reuters.

Aid agencies and government officials estimate there are now as many as 600 migrants in the northern port area.

Memos reveal new details of NSA & FBI illegal spying on Americans under Obama

The FBI and National Security Agency improperly searched, stored and distributed raw intelligence on Americans, according to recently declassified documents about the controversial Section 702 surveillance program.

The documents, released earlier this month in response to a lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), reveal specific violations that the FBI and NSA disclosed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) or the Justice Department’s national security division during President Barack Obama’s time in office, between 2009 and 2016.

Reviewing the documents, The Hill found more than 90 incidents that specifically cited an impact on Americans, who are not supposed to be affected by 702 surveillance. Many of the incidents involved multiple people, multiple violations, or extended periods of time, the newspaper noted.

One analyst ran the same search on an American citizen “every work day” for a period of time in 2013 and 2014.

In 2015, the NSA issued a report that included the name of an American “whose identity was not foreign intelligence,”according to one incident report. The agency eventually discovered the error and “recalled” the information.

There were several other instances where names of Americans were improperly shared with other intelligence agencies without being redacted, violating minimization procedures. The information had to be recalled and purged after the fact, according to The Hill.

“CIA and FBI received unminimized data from many Section 702-tasked facilities and at times are thus required to conduct similar purges,” one report said.

The FBI disclosed three instances of “improper disseminations of US persons identities” between December 2013 and February 2014.

Though the law requires the NSA to notify other intelligence agencies within five days if and when it wrongly disseminates information about Americans, the documents showed that the average notification time was 19 days, and in some cases took as long as 131 business days.

*

The NSA says the mistakes amount to less than 1 percent of surveillance intercepts through the Section 702 program, which was established by Congress in late 2008.

“The National Security Agency has in place a strong compliance program that identifies incidents, reports them to external overseers, and then develops appropriate solutions to remedy any incidents,”NSA spokesman Michael Halbig told The Hill. “Quite simply, a compliance program that never finds an incident is not a robust compliance program.”

“We believe that, particularly when compared with the overall level of activity, the compliance incident rate is very low,” Alexander Joel, head of the Office of Civil Liberties, Privacy and Transparency for the director of national intelligence, told The Hill.

Oversight and compliance procedures intended to safeguard Americans are “robust and effective,” the FBI said in a statement. “Section 702 is vital to the safety and security of the American people. It is one of the most valuable tools the Intelligence Community has, and therefore, is used with the utmost care by the men and women of the FBI so as to not jeopardize future utility.”

The ACLU, which obtained the documents on July 11 after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, is not convinced.

“The NSA claims it has rules to protect our privacy, but it turns out those rules are weak, full of loopholes, and violated again and again,” said Patrick Toomey, an ACLU attorney in New York who was involved in the FOIA litigation.

“What we’re now seeing is a history of the NSA not being able to police itself,” Neema Guliani, ACLU chief legislative counsel, told The Hill. “All of this raises questions about whether the procedures the agencies have put forth are really being followed in all cases.”

Shortly before the end of his term in office, in January 2017, Obama “eviscerated” the previously existing limits on sharing of raw NSA intelligence with domestic law enforcement agencies. The full effect of that decision will not be known until the next NSA compliance report, due in April 2018.

‘Establishment attacking Trump team as it poses threat to them’

The Trump team poses a threat to the Democratic Party, as well as to the globalist wing of the Republican Party, according to political analyst Charles Ortel, commenting on the ongoing scandal over Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.

*

Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, became the latest suspect in the scandal and was called to testify at a ‘closed-door’ hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Kushner explained in a statement he only had four contacts with Russians during the presidential campaign of his father-in-law, and that none of them were improper.

RT:  What do you make of Jared Kushner’s statement to Congress? Will it put a stop to claims he colluded with Russia?

Charles Ortel: I doubt it. I thought he did a very good job. His statement was complete; it makes eminent sense. When you look at the substance of what actually happened, and we now have many months to think about it. Putting the 2016 election and the primary season in perspective; a complete outsider, bested 16 establishment competitors on the Republican side, and then blew out of the water, somebody who felt had a right to win, who was well positioned, loved by the media, well ensconced throughout the US of America, had a commanding lead, but ran a deplorable campaign, did a gigantic belly flop. That is the real story. And the sore losers in the media, in the Democrat Clinton wing and the Obama wing refuse to accept the reality. So they would complain and complain and do their best to try to delegitimize this president. I am not a huge fan of Jared Kushner or the idea that his son-in-law should have such a high position in a Republican government, that is to say, Republican form of government. Nonetheless, I think Jared Kushner did a great job in the primary, a great job in the general election, a great job in the transition, and a fine, outstanding job today. So I would hope the Democrats would realize it is actually in their interest now to use this new message that just came out today, and accept the fact that they lost. Because Hillary Clinton and her team ran a horrible campaign, learn from that, move on and select a new set of initiatives to try to sell the American people. But I fear they are simply just not going to give up.

Screen Shot 2017-07-25 at 4.29.44 PM

RT:  Do you think it was appropriate for Congress to summon Jared Kushner for questioning, even though no evidence of Russia collusion has ever been provided? Why do you think we’re seeing more people brought to testify to Congress?

CO: It is a guess, but I hope an educated guess. I believe what has happened here is that the Trump organization, the Trump team, poses a threat not simply to the Democratic Party, but to the establishment wing, the globalist wing of the Republican Party. What has really been going on in the US and in the advanced economies around the world is that globalists, people who want to have some global government that may be lightly regulated where they are connected, and they can take advantage of business opportunities, people on the left and the right, in academia, media, business, and investing, consulting, in legal professions, in journalism – they all love this idea of globalism. But globalism and regionalism really haven’t worked anywhere as the EU is playing testament.

So that is what I think is going on here – the people who fear the dismantling of the globalist structure, of the EU – they are out to get the Trump people however they can. Unfortunately, under our legal system the special counsel Robert Mueller has a lot of power to take his investigation wherever he wants to take it. Unless Trump and his team acquire some backbone, quite frankly I think we’ve seen enough, we know enough, I think President Trump should stand up, he should be encouraged to use the process formally and get Robert Mueller to produce results and then stand down.

‘Kushner helped himself testifying about Trump’s presidential campaign?’

Democratic super-delegate Mitch Ceasar, and Ed Martin the president of Eagle Forum discussed the issue with RT America’s Ed Schultz.

RT:  From a legal aspect, did Kushner help himself today?

Mitch Ceasar: What he really did is interesting: in some ways he kind of threw his brother-in-law, Donald Trump Junior, under the bus, because he clearly admitted all these meetings with Russian folks, just saying he is not really part of it. I don’t think he is a boy scout – you can’t survive in New York real estate and be a boy scout. See the example of Donald Trump. But clearly, he tried to distance himself – no question about that. Only time will tell if he helped himself. I think he did in the context of public opinion a little bit, because we heard his voice for the first time… I think he’s doing well on the PR front. It is very difficult at this point to see how he is doing on the legal front.

RT:  Does that embolden the president’s argument that these investigations are overboard? What are your thoughts?

Ed Martin: I want to point two things …. Number one: last week Mike Pompeo, the head of the CIA said the following: “I am confident the Russians did interfere in the election.” When someone says: “I am confident of something” – that means they are not telling you the whole truth, they don’t know for sure. Jared Kushner instead stood up today and said: “I didn’t do this. I am careful; I’ll show you everything.” The difference between the intelligence community and the deep state telling us to focus on Russia and Jared Kushner is the difference between truth telling and people trying to hide the ball. That is why Kushner helped himself; that is why people are starting to move on. Frankly, that is why the Democrats… have a problem – because people are looking up saying: “What are you for, except yelling about things that are in the past that don’t make sense.”

Former CIA Director Calls For A Coup If Trump Fires Mueller

The exchange is 43 minutes into the clip below:

by Tyler Durden

In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.

“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.

(Full transcript here)

Brennan appeared alongside his former colleague, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and both men who served in the Obama administration, told Blitzer they have total confidence in Mueller. “Absolutely. It was an inspired choice- they don’t come any better, ” Brennan said adding that “If Mueller is fired, I hope our elected reps will stand up and say enough is enough.” Some have responded with questions where Brennan’s devotion to the Constitution was in the aftermath of the events in Benghazi.

Falling back on his neocon roots, James Clapper, who has waged a long-running vendetta with Trump, once again warned about Russian interference in US affairs. When asked about the June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort with a Russian lawyer and others, he responded: “I’m an old school, Cold War warrior and all that – so I have, there’s truth in advertising, great suspicions about the Russians and what they do. A lot of this to me had kind of the standard textbook tradecraft long deployed by Russians. It would have been a really good idea maybe to have vetted whoever they were meeting with.”

Clapper was also asked about Trump’s comparison of the intelligence community to Nazi Germany. Clapper said he called the President-elect nine days before he left the Obama administration saying he “couldn’t let that reference pass” and it was an insult to him, CIA Director John Brennan and the workforce. “That was a terrible, insulting affront, not just to me or John, we get paid the big bucks, but I’m talking about the rank and file, men and women, patriots and intelligence community — that was completely inappropriate and over the top – I had to do something about it.”

And so he did: on the call Clapper said Trump asked him to “to put out a statement rebutting the contents of the dossier which I couldn’t and wouldn’t do. It was kind of transactional” referring to a dossier that alleged ties between President Donald Trump‘s campaign and Russia. It was not clear if he wouldn’t and couldn’t do it because the contents were legitimate, in his view, or because the dossier is what started the whole “Russian collusion” narrative in the first place. Curiously, Clapper saw it as a favor to Trump not to issue a statement: Clapper was asked by Blitzer why he didn’t put out a statement replying: “The whole point of the dossier by the way was we felt an obligation to warn him to alert him to the fact it was out there. That was the whole point.”

It was not clear if James Comey, whose subsequent leak to the NYT led to the appointment of Mueller, would have applied the same reasoning when asked by Trump to rebut the dossier’s contents.

Korri Galbraith 

What really disgusts me about him is he constantly reminds them that HE felt no fear, so he deemed there was no reason to have law enforcement come in. He had no knowledge of what was happening on campus, as he was effectively held hostage. How did he know there weren’t groups like this all over the campus at the time? How did he know that he was the only person facing an encounter? He didn’t, he made a decision about himself that literally puts the entire campus at risk! It’s disgusting. Well, I don’t feel threatened if somebody says that they are going to shoot up the staff at evergreen and get in their truck and leave to do it. So I’m not calling the police. I don’t feel threatened when I see a rape, or a murder, or a robbery, or a physical attack. So we shouldn’t involve the police. Fuck everybody else, it’s all about me and my belief structure. I am in charge.

*(FROM THE RELIGION OF PEACE) – Knife-wielding man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ attacks Spanish police officers (VIDEO)

A knife-wielding man shouting “Allahu Akbar” has attacked police on the Spanish-Moroccan border, injuring an officer, according to Spanish authorities. The attacker was immediately arrested by Spanish law enforcement.

The incident took place at a border post between the Moroccan town of Beni Enzar and the Spanish-controlled city of Melilla on Tuesday, local media reported.

“A man entered the border post and once inside, pulled out a large knife and confronted [police] shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ [God is Great], slightly injuring a policeman,” Irene Flores, a spokeswoman for the Spanish government’s representative office in Melilla, told AFP.

Capture

A spokesman for Spanish police also confirmed the incident to the news agency.

Law enforcement have opened an investigation into the case. The nationality of the attacker has not yet been determined, according to local media.

However, Reuters reported that the attacker is believed to be a Moroccan citizen, citing a source from the local government.
