Accuser's open letter to Roy Moore: 'Where does your immorality end?'

Leigh Corfman, the first woman to accuse Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her, has written an open letter to the former judge demanding that he stop calling her a liar.

“I demand that you stop calling me a liar and attacking my character,” Corfman wrote in the letter, published by AL.com on Tuesday. “I am telling the truth, and you should have the decency to admit it and apologize.”

Earlier this month, the Washington Post published a report detailing sexual misconduct allegations against Moore by four women, including Corfman. She told the newspaper that in 1979 — when she was 14, and Moore was 32 — Moore partially undressed her and himself, touched her over her undergarments and guided her hand to touch him.

“When the Washington Post approached me about what you did to me as a child, I told them what happened, just as I had told family and friends years before,” Corfman wrote in her open letter. “I stand by every word.”

Corfman was the first of nine women to publicly accuse Moore of various forms of misconduct. All but one said they were teenagers when Moore pursued sexual relationships with them.

Moore has fiercely denied misconduct allegations, and denied even knowing Corfman.

On Wednesday, his campaign tweeted a link to a video report that attempts to smear his accusers.

At a rally in Henagar, Ala., on Monday night, Moore called the charges against him “completely false” and described them as a conspiracy concocted by Democrats and establishment Republicans.

“These allegations are completely false,” he said. “They are malicious. Specifically, I do not know any of these women, nor have I ever engaged in sexual misconduct with anyone.”

Last week, in an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show, Corfman elaborated on her alleged encounter with Moore.

Referring to Moore’s assertion that he doesn’t even know her, she remarked: “I wonder how many me’s he doesn’t know.”

“I gave an interview on television so that people could judge for themselves whether I was telling the truth,” she wrote in the open letter. “You sent out your spokesmen to call me a liar. Day after day. Finally, last night, you did the dirty work yourself.”

“The initial barrage of attacks against me voiced by your campaign spokespersons and others seemed petty, so I did not respond,” Corfman continued. “But when you personally denounced me last night and called me slanderous names, I decided that I am done being silent. What you did to me when I was 14 years old should be revolting to every person of good morals. But now you are attacking my honesty and integrity. Where does your immorality end?”

The Moore campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Moore and Democratic candidate Doug Jones are vying for the U.S. Senate seat that was vacated by Jeff Sessions when he was appointed attorney general. The special election is scheduled for Dec. 12.

At the White House last week, President Trump said that people in Alabama should vote for Moore because Jones is a Democrat.

When he was asked by reporters whether having an alleged molester in the Senate was preferable to seating a Democrat, the president pointed to Moore’s denials.

“Well, he denies it,” Trump said. “Look, he denies it.”

“He says it didn’t happen, and you know, you have to listen to him also,” the president added.

Theresa May Calls Trump's Anti-Muslim Retweets 'Wrong'

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday condemned President Donald Trump as “wrong” for retweeting anti-Muslim videos, reviving tensions between the two governments.

“It is wrong for the President to have done this,” May’s office said in response to the retweeted videos, initially posted by British far-right leader Jayda Fransen of Britain First.

“Britain First seeks to divide communities through their use of hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions,” May said in a statement. “They cause anxiety to law-abiding people.” 

She continued: “British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents ― decency, tolerance and respect.”

Trump responded later on Wednesday that May should “focus on” terrorism in the U.K. rather than his social media behavior, ignoring advice from experts that have said his anti-Muslim rhetoric has actually aided ISIS’ recruiting efforts.

The barbs have added strain to what had been one of the world’s strongest modern alliances, and reignited calls from British politicians to cancel Trump’s planned visit to the U.K. Several members of the British Parliament spoke out against Trump for spreading the videos, with several calling his actions “disgraceful.”

British lawmaker Chuka Umunna renewed requests that Trump’s invitation to visit the U.K. next year be withdrawn. “I don’t think the president of the United States, a president that has not only promoted bigotry, misogyny and racism in his own country, I don’t think he is welcome here,” Umunna told Sky News.

“Somebody in his position, doing what he has done and said, not only in his own country but now getting involved in the debate here ― he is normalizing hatred,” Umunna added.

A Downing Street spokesman said Trump’s planned state visit stands. 

“The United States is one of our oldest and closest allies. An invitation for a state visit has been extended and accepted. Further details will announced in due course,” the spokesman said.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan in June asked that Trump’s visit be canceled, after the president criticized Khan’s response to a London terror attack. May bit back at Trump at the time, saying the mayor was “doing a good job and it’s wrong to say anything else.”

U.K. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Wednesday encouraged his government to condemn Trump.

Yugoslav war criminal dies after drinking 'poison' to end UN court hearing

Yugoslav war criminal Slobodan Praljak reportedly died after his 20-year prison sentence was upheld by a UN war crimes tribunal and declaring he had drunk poison.

“I am not a war criminal,” Praljak allegedly said moments before drinking from a small bottle of liquid amid gasps during the appeal hearing in The Hague, a city in western Netherlands.

RELATED: Bosnia’s war crimes

Praljak had received a 20-year sentence in 2013 for crimes against humanity he reportedly committed in the city of Mostar. Upon hearing the verdict had been upheld, the 72-year-old said: “I have taken poison.”

Carmel Agius, the presiding appeals judge, reportedly suspended the proceedings immediately after and medics were called to the courtroom.

“Okay,” Agius said. “We suspend the… We suspend… Please, the curtains. Don’t take away the glass that he used when he drank something.”

Though Croatia’s state TV has reported the death, the UN court claims it cannot confirm it.

When asked by the Associated Press if he could confirm the incident, a spokesman for the tribunal, Nenad Golcevski, said: “I have no information to share at this point.”

According to BBC, not even the Dutch police would not comment on the report based on “sources close to Gen. Praljak.”

Praljak was a commander for Bosnian Croat defense forces. Under his governance, the UN war crimes tribunal reportedly found that he failed to make any serious efforts to stop soldiers from rounding up Muslims in Prozor back in 1993.

The war criminal also reportedly failed to act upon information surrounding the planning of murders in addition to attacks on those involved with international organizations and the destruction of Mostar’s historic Old Bridge and mosques.

Re: European parliament calls for recognition of Palestine

The European parliament stressed on Wednesday that “time has come for the EU members to recognise an independent state of Palestine on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.”

This call came in a statement for the Chair of the European Parliament’s Standing Delegation for Relations with Palestine, Neoklis Sylikiotis.

He made his call to mark International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. He also called for the suspension of the EU partnership with Israel until it becomes “seriously committed” to respecting human rights.

Sylikiotis added: “This day reminds all of us of our failure to achieve justice for the Palestinians, who have been suffering the loss and theft of their human rights since 1948.”

He stressed that solidarity with the Palestinian people means supporting their rights within the framework of international law, including the right to self-determination and right of return.

Since 1977 the UN General Assembly has designated 29 November as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people – the same day that the UN approved a resolution to partition Palestine in 1947.

Re: Egypt creating African lobby group against Ethiopia dam

Egypt is edging forward to create an African lobby in a bid to defend its position with regards Ethiopia’s Renaissance Dam, the New Khaleej reported.

Egyptian newspaper Al-Shorouk stated that the African lobby will work with an alliance of African countries and will be tasked with monitoring the crisis caused by the Ethiopian water projects.

“The construction work will not stop at the dam for one minute, and this is our country’s consistent position, as it is a basic right for Ethiopia to make use of its water resources to produce energy for development and poverty eradication,” Ethiopia’s Minister of Irrigation said.

Egyptian water experts claim that the dam will harm Cairo’s access to 55.5 billion cubic metres of Nile water. Ethiopia has stated that the dam will be a positive construction assisting in electricity generation and will not harm countries like Sudan and Egypt.

The President of the Arab Water Council, Mahmoud Abu Zeid, claimed that Ethiopia constructed the dam project without consulting the surrounding countries, contrary to international norms governing the law of the sea.

Construction of the dam began in 2011. It is located 15 kilometres east of the Ethiopia-Sudan border. The dam has been the centre of a row between Egypt and Ethiopia with Cairo accusing Addis Ababa of endangering its supply of Nile water by building the huge reservoir in Ethiopia’s Benishangul-Gumuz region, near the Sudanese border.

The dam is expected to have a reservoir of about 70 billion cubic metres (about 240 billion cubic feet) which Ethiopia hopes will solve the country’s power shortage problems. When built, it will become Africa’s biggest hydro-electric power station, producing up to 6,000 megawatts of electricity – at a cost of $4.2 billion.

Re: The Israelis and redefining sovereignty

The events currently occurring in the Palestinian arena, specifically the American vision for the Palestinian issue, are similar to a huge marketing campaign, as well as the sanctions that will be imposed on anyone who refuses the marketed product. This is despite the important fact that the product being marketed is not even ready yet.

The Israelis want to market a new idea, or rather, a new old idea. This idea suggests that there are various forms of sovereignty and that this could be proposed to the Palestinians. This is reminiscent of the Israelis’ past proposal of what they called functional sovereignty.

The American team responsible for the peace process is composed of a group of Zionists supporting settlements in the occupied West Bank. Therefore, it is not surprising that since the formation of the American administration we have been witnessing efforts to empty the settlement process of any content that includes any Israeli withdrawal or settlement dismantlement. Hence, this team is doing three things: buying time for the Israeli occupation and its settlement expansion, marketing ideas requiring the Palestinians to back down from the idea of an independent state, and thirdly, marketing the division of peace in the Middle East into two tracks: Arab-Israel peace and Palestinian-Israeli peace.

Read: Decades of US diplomacy has failed: Why the US wants to shut the PLO office

According to Al-Monitor, which operates mainly from Lebanon and publishes material in Arabic, Hebrew and English, the American Ambassador (a Jewish Zionist) to Tel Aviv, David Friedman, the American consulate in Jerusalem, in cooperation with the US Special Representative for International Negotiations, Jason Greenblatt, are making great efforts to propose a vision that has a regional context. What Benjamin Netanyahu is doing is trying to achieve normalised relations, as well as economic, political and military relations with Arab countries allowing him to establish Israeli influence in the region in the future. Of course, there is no reference or hints of this goal, but any amateur researcher in international relations who reads the Israeli theories, especially those of the Likud Party, and is familiar with the basics of international relations, especially the realism theory, would realise these are their goals.

Instead of announcing these goals, they announce the importance of an Arab-Israeli alliance against terrorism and Iran. According to Al-Monitor, which quoted Israeli diplomats, Netanyahu is currently looking into how he can pay the lowest price to market the idea of Arab-Israeli normalisation, along with other basic ideas, such as not withdrawing from the West Bank and maintaining full security control over it. Therefore, he proposed the idea of autonomy, but called it a different name, considering it another kind of sovereignty.

If the American initiative is ever announced, it will basically say: The Palestinians must accept the status quo in return for some facilitations in their living conditions and formal changes. The Palestinians declare their state on paper, and they can declare similar things, but will not have Israeli recognition, nothing will change on the ground, and it must be within restrictions that do not include requesting international recognition or prosecuting the Israelis in the International Criminal Court.

The Israelis raised the idea of ​​”functional sovereignty” in Jerusalem, during the Camp David and Taba negotiations of 2000 and 2001. It can basically be called “extensive administrative powers”, and nothing more. Nowadays, similar ideas are being marketed, but only in the West Bank.

We are not certain the Americans will reach the stage of declaring an initiative. If they do announce an initiative, it will be recognition of the Likud and Israeli initiatives for autonomy, as proposed in ideas raised in the 1970s during the Egyptian-Israeli negotiations.

Even if, for the sake of argument, we assume there are some Arab states that would accept these new ideas of an entity less than a Palestinian state and the return of the refugees, which is not yet certain, it will be the Palestinians who make the decision, specifically Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Based on all past experiences, the Palestinians will not agree to any solution that does not include a Palestinian state, and Abbas will reject such a proposal.

There is much room for speculation about future scenarios, including holding the Palestinians responsible for the failure, reaching a temporary agreement (Oslo 2) that involves the beginning of Arab-Israeli normalisation and making minor changes to the status of the Palestinians, or new negotiations (which the Palestinians have rejected with freezing settlement expansion). However, despite this, we are certain that the majority of the world superpowers are dealing with the possibility of reaching a final agreement as something far-fetched.

The Palestinians, more than anyone else, need a strategy that includes a hint to their alternative plan if a solution is not reached.

NK’s Nuclear-EMP Threat Is Chinese and Deep State Aggression In Disguise

 

China has pretended to support our position on N. Korea. now they have done a dramatic flip flop. It is 1950 all over again. We could very easily be fighting the Chinese as well as the N. Koreans.

The world was shocked when it learned that North Korea launched an ICBM  and here is the account from the BBC

North Korea has fired its highest-ever intercontinental ballistic missile and poses a worldwide threat, US Secretary of Defence James Mattis has said.

The missile, launched early on Wednesday, landed in Japanese waters.

It reached an altitude of 4,500km (2,800 miles) and flew 960km, according to South Korea’s military.

It was the latest in a series of weapons tests that has raised tensions. Pyongyang last launched a ballistic missile in September.

It also conducted its sixth nuclear test that month. North Korea has continued to develop its nuclear and missile programme despite global condemnation and sanctions.

The UN Security Council is due to convene an emergency session to discuss the latest test.

Technologically, this was an significant step forward for the North Koreans. However, is the North Koreans tempting fate, or is this thinly veiled Chinese aggression tied to various free trade agreements.

The Common Sense Show has learned that an EMP attack would come from a high altitude nuclear burst above the United States. Conversely, a nuclear attack from an ICBM missile would have some elevation in its delivery arc (eg perhaps as high as 150 miles), but the trajectory of an incoming ICBM designed to produce and EMP effect would have to achieve a higher orbit. American defense officials are aware of this. However, do not expect to hear a word about this in the media.

The launch of a North Korean ICBM that achieved a height of 2800 miles speaks to the fact that they are intent in producin  high altitude burst resulting the destruction of most of the grid and electronics within the United States.

 When China says “jump”, the North Koreans respond with “How high”. the North Korea leaders do not sneeze without the Chinese providing the tissue. If China did not want NK firing ICBM’s, they never would.

NK has now developed the ability to deliver nukes anywhere inside the United States.More importantly, they can deliver an EMP attack through the setting off of  a high altitude blast.

Why would China be invested in the North Koreans ramping up their intimidation? The answer is simple and it has to do with free trade. Trump has gotten the best of the Chinese in the latest round of talks regading trade. China was more in the next round and I think it is likely that the Chinese are playing the NK nuclear/EMP care in order to gain some concesions from Trump when it comes to trade aggreements.

To those that think an EMP is no big eal, please look the following paragraphs.

As James Wesley Rawles pointed out to me in a recent interview, there are several areas that would be very unfortunate for your to be at when an EMP is discharged.

  1. Being in one of the 4,000 planes that would be flying, would be fatal.
  2. Being in the hospital on life-sustaining equipment.
  3. Being trapped in a high rise building elevator. This would become your tomb.
  4. Being on the highway at night when all the lights and go out as well as most car engines. There would be multiple and devastating accidents.
  5. Being more that 10 miles from home in harsh weather. Do you have a bug-in bag? Consider a fold up bike.

The list is more extensive, but you get the idea.

A few years ago, Congressman Franks (AZ) wrote a very pointed and blunt letter to Frederick Gorbet, the chairman of the Board of Trustees for the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). Franks jointly addressed his letter to Gary Cauley, the President and CEO of the same organization.

In the letter, Congressman Franks sounds like a man who has had enough as he is as mad as hell and is not going to take it anymore. Franks obviously sees the dire threat posed by an EMP grid take down and is increasingly frustrated with the “Pollyanna’s” who are acting irresponsibly in the face of the threat, especially when some of these people are in positions of responsibility when it comes to protecting the public from a prolonged and catastrophic blackout.

In the letter, Franks points out that National Geographic aired a docudrama entitled American Blackout. The film showed what our countrymen and nation would experience in the event of a cyber attack on the US bulk power distribution system and a resulting shut down of the grid for 10 days. If anything, the serious hardships, dislocation, physical destruction, deaths and societal breakdown portrayed in this docudrama are likely understated“. In my last article, a Franks’ video was played in which he said an EMP take down of the grid would result in 60% of Americans dying as a result of the event. The Naval War College puts the death rate at 90%.

Franks goes on to chastise NERC for the statements of one of its member electric utilities, the Kissimmee Utility Authority which issued a statement, in response to the film, which clearly chastised the National Geographic docudrama by stating that the threats were overblown. Franks made it clear in his letter, that if anything, the threats of the docudrama were grossly understated! Further, Franks went on to say that the time frame which encompassed the blackout, two weeks, was an additional understatement and “that a sustained blackout would be catastrophic”.  Franks also accuses NERC and its member utilities of historically under-representing the seriousness of the threat of an EMP attack and a subsequent power grid take do

Frnds went on to say that NERC, was being ” dismissive” of his claims and that “the blackout possibilities represents a catastrophic threat to the United States of widespread power loss for potentially months or years that could result in American society tearing itself apart and a horrific loss of human life.

Here’s where Frank’s frustration becomes notable. Despite all of the protests from Franks, his reasonable claims fell on deaf ears. Obama snubbed Frank’s efforts at every turn. Obama went so far as to allow the Russians and Chinese observe the Grid EX drills which practiced a grid down scenario. In other words, we showed them how to bring down our grids.  We always knew that Obama wa s a traitor. However, this takes the proverbial cake.

 

Conclusion

For the price of one B-1 bomber, Obama, on behalf of the Deep State, refused to act to protect America from such an attack. Since the two most likely states who will carry out this attack, Iran and North Korea, we should consider an attack by these states upon the United States to be an attack from their dominant allies, Russia and China. In the present set of events, we are talking about China, North Korea (puppet) and the United States.

The elite will survive. Will You?
