Visiting the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and stuffing a “prayer note” in between the stones is a is a long-standing tradition with Western politicians, offering them an excellent opportunity of channeling their love for all things Jewish into the public spotlight.
[ Ed. note – One of the most memorable speeches ever delivered at the UN by any head of state was that given in 2006 by Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. The speech was given before the General Assembly on September 20–just one day after George W. Bush had spoken in the same chamber before the same body.
The United States is ready to use its nuclear weapons against North Korea if the country continues to threaten Washington or its allies, the White House has warned, amid escalating tensions between the two countries.

The above video report was posted by RT on Friday in response to the new sanctions announced on Venezuela. But what I find most fascinating about it is that it offers us a very graphic “before” and “after” view of Donald Trump.
In the video above Kevin Barrett, discusses his views on 9/11 as well as on Trump’s decision to ramp up US military forces in Afghanistan. He notes that previously, back during the presidential campaign, Trump was skeptical about the US getting further involved in foreign wars–but now, as president, he is reversing many of his previous promises in that regard. It all kind of underscores comments made recently by former CIA agent Kevin Shipp regarding the deep state/shadow government. I put up a post a bit earlier today about Shipp’s talk back in July before an audience in northern California. You can check it out here if you haven’t done so.
Trump took time off from threatening North Korea today in order to fire off a few threats at Venezuela. If the president decides he wants to send US troops into Venezuela, he probably now has the justification he needs, courtesy of the UN Humans Rights Commission. The Office of the High Commissioner has released a report accusing the government of “patterns” of human rights violations.
