Europe
Greece resumes contact with Turkey
[ALMASDARNEWS] Following days of escalating tensions in the Mediterranean Sea, Greece has officially resumed forms of high-level contact with The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund...
according to Greek government spokesperson, Stelios Petsas.

The move comes after Turkey has withdrawn one of its survey vessels from an area that Greece considers within its own boundaries.

Meanwhile,
...back at the chili cook-off, Chuck slipped the habañero into the roasted jalapeño...
Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
has claimed that discussions resumed due to Ankara’s "determination and firm stance," as reported in the Daily Sabah on Wednesday.

Last Tuesday, the President of the European Parliament, Ursula von der Leyen, also issued a statement in support of Greece, promising the Unions full solidarity to Cyprus and Greece in the dispute.

Hezbollah caches explosives across Europe claims US Diplomat
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]
US Coordinator for Counterterrorism Nathan Sales on Thursday accused Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Lebanese movement, of stockpiling across Europe ammonia nitrate – an explosive fertiliser that destroyed the port in Beirut.

“Today the US government is unveiling new information about Hezbollah presence in Europe. Since 2012 Hezbollah has established caches of ammonium nitrate throughout Europe. Today I can reveal that some caches has been moved from Belgium to France, Greece, Italy, Spain and Switzerland,” Sales said during a webinar. “I can also reveal that significant ammonium nitrate caches have been discovered and destroyed in France, Greece, Italy. We have reasons to believe that this activity is still underway.”

The US diplomat claimed that Hezbollah’s intention is to use the substance as a weapon for carrying out major terror attacks if such orders come from its Iranian patrons.

“The question than becomes ‘Why would Hezbollah stockpile ammonium nitrate on European soil?’ Answer is clear – Hezbollah has put these weapons in place so that it conduct major terror attacks whenever… Tehran deems necessary,” Sales said.

He called a blast that rocked Lebanon’s capital in August and destroyed its port “a vivid reminder of how dangerous ammonium nitrate can be.” Sales said that the revelations show that more European countries “need to act now” to outlaw Hezbollah in its entirety – without making distinction between its military wing and political leadership.

Fifth Column
Rep. Andy Biggs to hold special order on House floor to find out who's been funding recent riots
[Fox] Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., plans to hold a special order on the House floor Wednesday, to allow several congressional members to speak about recent rioting in the U.S. and the possible sources of funding behind them.

Biggs' office said he will host the special order following the last votes of the day and speakers are expected to include: Reps. Ken Buck, R-Colo., Chip Roy, R-Texas, Dan Bishop, R-N.C., and Louie Gohmert R-Texas, along with several others.

"It will be about law and order and attacks on police in neighborhood communities," Biggs told Fox News during a phone interview.

"We will be allowed to control time on the floor and we’re going to have a series of members come and speak to these issues," he said. "We should be able to go [for] a full hour. It’s going to be a good group — a diverse group of speakers. It’s from all over the conference. They’ll all bring their own perspectives from their own districts and responses to what’s going on."

#2  A congressional inquiry into this is about the least effective way to get the information.

To do the job requires a lot of lawyers, computer specialists, financial experts, etc. Even then it would have to be well organized and led and requires some inside sources who know the players.

#3  If only there was some sort of federal investigative department with all those capabilities for surveiling American citizens (those who break the law please)...

Maybe there could be a set of judges who decide when the evidence is good enough to look at an individual in detail...

#5  Since BLM admits to having $1.4B in cash reserves, I don't see any reason for a Congressional investigation. Not that it's going to happen anyway. BLM is paying for itself. Since it's a 501C3 donations should be documented. Additionally, many American Corporations have recently announced donations. If Rep. Biggs wants more info he can go to https://capitalresearch.org/article/the-organizational-structure-of-black-lives-matter/

Heard very little from Wray about all this other than he thinks white supremacists are the biggest domestic problem. What-an-out-to-lunch sort of guy. Pubs need to win the House so this guy can be replaced.

#9  I think Vespasian Ebboting9735 is right. In the days after George Floyd I heard donations to BLM went through the roof and they have a huge war chest.

I think Antifa is funded by trust fund kids and Soros.

So it gets down to which riots and rioters?

Lancaster protests after fatal police shooting
[LANCASTERONLINE] Nine of the 13 protesters facing multiple felony charges after a round of arrests early this week saw their bail amounts reduced Thursday, after days of controversy over whether the initial totals were excessive.

District Court Judge Bruce Roth initially set the bail for several protesters at $1 million, a measure which Lt. Gov. John Fetterman called unconstitutional. Other protesters and civil rights groups have said the bail amounts were extreme.

Several of the protesters are facing felony arson, riot and vandalism charges, among other counts, and while city police did not request the bail amount, public information officer Lt. Bill Hickey said the felony charges are considered in the judge’s equation and "falls within the rules of criminal procedure."

Bail amounts were reviewed Thursday morning at the Lancaster County Courthouse after five protesters petitioned for a lower bail. The defense attorneys and the Lancaster County District Attorney's office helped the judge come to a conclusion for the new bail amounts, Roth said. Along with bail restrictions, the protesters who are released are not allowed to be within a block of the Lancaster city cop shoppe for anything than legitimate reason, the judges ruled.

All but one protester appeared via video for the hearings. Defendants usually are not present for bail hearings, Judge Dennis Reinaker said during the hearings.
The characters and their situations explained at some length at the link. Courtesy of Thong Bumble1096, the Daily Mail gives a brief summary:
Taylor Enterline, 20: Bail reduced from $1 million to $50,000 unsecured
Kathryn Patterson, 20: From $1 million to $50,0000 unsecured
Lee Wise, 29: From $100,000 to $50,000 unsecured; is on house arrest
Dylan Davis, 28: From $1 million to $50,000 unsecured; is on house arrest
Barry Jones, 30: From $1 million to $100,000 unsecured; is on house arrest
T-Jay Fry, 28: $1 million to $25,000 cash
Talia Gessner, 18: $1 million to $50,000 cash, if released, house arrest
Yoshua Dwayne Montague, 23: From $1 million to $100,000 cash or 10%
Jamal Shariff Newman, 24: From $1 million to $100,000 cash

FBI Fraud: Wray Claims ‘White Supremacists’ Make Up the Largest Share of Racially Motivated Terrorists in the US as BLM Burns Businesses to the Ground (VIDEO)
[GatewayPundit] FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday said “white supremacists” make up the largest share of racially motivated terrorists in the United States.

Wray made these statements during a testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee.

“Within the domestic terrorism bucket, category as a whole, racially motivated violent extremism is I think the biggest bucket within that large group. And within the racially motivated extremism bucket people prescribing to some kind of white supremacist ideology is certainly the biggest chunk of that,” Wray told radical Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI).

“I don’t have the numbers for you,” Wray said admitting he has no evidence whatsoever to back up his insane claims.

#11  When I retired from State Homeland Security in 2010, this infectious nonsense was already underway at DHS in their intel analysis reporting and threat assessments. the also described the threat racist “milita “ organisations as if they were a significant factor in the overall homeland threat matrix. We laughed at it and saw in the years following that it was a fantasy of the Obama era needs to foment heightened sense of racial disharmony. To see the Bureau peddle such literal BS is another tragic proof of the rot salted into that once proud organization.

#12  If you re-define white supremacy as white kids and adults getting high on drugs and setting fires because they think their lifestyle is the only lifestyle...then yeah.

What they are trying to do, like Daily Mail does with the definition of Karens, is slander everyone peripherally associated with some D&D class system relationship. "Cave Elves are causing problems, so Wood Elves and even Half-Elves and their sympathizers are also at fault, and therefore responsible for the Cave Elf behavior."

International-UN-NGOs
UN agency for Palestinians says it could be forced to halt some services
[IsraelTimes] UNRWA, the UN agency for Paleostinian refugees, is experiencing a financial crisis that could force it to halt some services to an already impoverished population of more than 5 million people, the head of the agency says.

Philippe Lazzarini also warns in an interview with The News Agency that Dare Not be Named in Beirut that the spread of coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
, an economic meltdown in Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
and a huge deficit in UNRWA’s budget are deepening the hopelessness among Paleostinian refugees, some of whom are trying to flee the Mediterranean nation on migrant boats.

UNRWA’s financial crisis was sparked by the loss of all funding from the United States, its largest donor, in 2018. The US gave $360 million to UNRWA in 2017, but only $60 million in 2018, and nothing last year or so far this year.

US President Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
said in January 2018 that the Paleostinians must return to peace talks with Israel to receive US aid money. He has since put forth a plan for resolving the conflict that was rejected by the Paleostinians.

"I do believe that ceasing our activity in a context where there is such a level of despair, such a level of hopelessness, can only fuel the feeling that the Paleostinian refugees are abandoned by the international community," says Lazzarini, who took office in March.

Lazzarini says supporting UNRWA "is one of the best investments in stability in the region at a time of extraordinary unpredictability and volatility."

"We cannot let the situation get worse in a highly volatile region," he says.

Trump’s administration, along with Israel, accuses UNRWA of perpetuating the Israeli-Paleostinian conflict by extending refugee status to millions of descendants of Paleostinians who fled or were forced out of homes in today’s Israel at the time of the establishment of the Jewish state in 1948, rather than limiting refugee status only to the original refugees as is the norm with most refugee populations worldwide.

Italian MP said to nominate Netanyahu for Nobel Peace Prize
The only politician nearly as disliked as President Trump. Let the indignation overflow at the very idea.
[IsraelTimes] An Italian politician has nominated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the Nobel Peace Prize over Israel’s normalization of ties with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, according to Channel 13.

US President Donald Trump
...The tack in the backside of the Democratic Party...
has been nominated for the prize for brokering the deals.

Nominations can be made by a select group of people and organizations, including national politicians, heads of state and certain international institutions. In 2020, the committee has received 318 nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize, of which 211 are individuals and 107 are organizations.

Lebanon misses deadline to form government
[IsraelTimes] Lebanese politicians have missed a 15-day deadline to form a crisis Cabinet, with many remaining deadlocked on which political faction gets to have the key portfolio of the finance ministry.

The deadline was set as part of a French initiative by President Emmanuel Macron who has been pressing the leaders in Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds.

It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
to form a Cabinet made up of specialists who can work on enacting urgent reforms to extract the country from a devastating economic and financial crisis.

The crisis has been worsened by the August 4 explosion at Beirut’s port caused by the detonation of thousands of tons of ammonium nitrates, which killed nearly 200 people, injured thousands and caused losses worth billions of dollars.

The French leader has described his initiative, which includes a road map and a timetable for reforms, as "the last chance for this system."

While initially committing to the plan and naming a new prime minister-designate who promised to deliver a Cabinet within two weeks, Lebanese politicians have been unable to meet the deadline amid divisions over the initiative itself and the manner in which the government formation is being carried out, away from the usual consultations and horse-trading among political factions.
