Berkeley Joins Other Bay Area Cities Calling For Trump’s Impeachment

On Tuesday night, the Berkeley City Council passed a five-page resolution calling for the president to be impeached. Berkeley City Councilmember Kate Harrison co-sponsored the resolution.

“I think it’s going to send a powerful message. I think we have no choice but to do this,” Harrison said. “We want to make sure we are on the right side of history,” said Alameda Vice Mayor Malia Vella. “Everything we do should be concerned about upholding civil rights, we should be concerned about upholding the Constitution.” (Source:

Russian and American troops are within ‘hand-grenade range’ of each other in Syria

US and Russian troops are working together with Kurdish YPG fighters in the country to combat ISIS in Syria and neighboring Iraq. Though the countries’ commanders are in contact, the Pentagon stopped military-to-military cooperation following Russia’s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula. Recently the forces ‘have converged literally within hand-grenade range of one another’, warned Army Lt. Gen. Steven Townsend, the commander of Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve. (Source:

EU could BREAK UP the US: Juncker in jaw-dropping threat to Trump over support for Brexit

In an extraordinary speech the EU Commission president said he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest of America if the Republican president does not change his tune and become more supportive of the EU. The remarks are diplomatic dynamite at a time when relations between Washington and Brussels are already strained over Europe’s meagre contributions to NATO and the US leader’s open preference for dealing with national governments. (Source:

‘Very ominous warning’ from Turkish strongman just ‘a preview’

Philip Haney, a former Customs and Border Protection officer, said it’s an ominous sign for Europe that Turkish ministers felt the need to go into European countries to campaign for a Turkish referendum in front of Europe’s large Turkish population. “It tells me they view Europe as an extension of their territory, of their sovereignty, of their influence,” Haney told WND. “This is a preview of what we can expect in the time ahead: an inordinate amount of malevolent influence exerted by rulers of countries, in this case in the Middle East, interfering with the sovereign authority of countries in Europe directly, no pretense.”

Erdogan’s threats amount to nothing less than a breach of European sovereignty, in Haney’s view. He noted German and Dutch leaders had the right, as leaders of sovereign nations, to deny entry to the Turkish ministers if they believed their presence would threaten public security.

“Erdogan’s saying that non-Muslim countries don’t have sovereign rights,” Haney said. “He’s saying, ‘If you do something we don’t like, there might be war.’” (Source:

TX Gov Abbott: I Will Sign Legislation That Could Put Sheriffs of Sanctuary Cities in Jail

Abbott said, “We have been pushing a piece of legislation in Texas that is going to pass that I will be signing into law that imposes even sterner penalties on counties. It will include things such as further defunding them. It will impose fines. And it could impose jail time for these sheriffs to enforce the laws. Oddly enough these sheriffs could wind up behind the very bars they are releasing these criminals from.” (Source:

South Korea: Former president Park arrested over corruption scandal

By arresting their former president on corruption charges, South Korea appears to be setting a great example for the rest of the world to follow (assuming she is guilty). Wouldn’t it be great to see Obama arrested for his crimes of wiretapping Trump? Or how about for stealing over $200 billion from mortgage investors? Our mainstream news media refused to even cover the story and about half our nation would totally freak out if justice was ever done. So, South Korea is leading the way by arresting their former president, Park Geun-hye, and escorting her to a detention center near Seoul on Friday following a court decision that approved her arrest over corruption allegations.

U.S. Department of Education Indoctrinates Students Into Islam

The DOE Islamic education program is currently being presented to the nation’s schools and teachers through the PBS LearningMedia website. Martin Mawyer, president of Christian Action Network (CAN), says, “Much of this so-called educational material is nothing more than indoctrinating students into Islamic religious beliefs, duties and actions.”

“It doesn’t appear that the either DOE or PBS LearningMedia offer similar instructional material on Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism or Hinduism through the PBS LearningMedia website,” says Mawyer.

“The DOE Islamic education program is not only a certain violation of the U.S. Constitution but a brazen and underhanded attempt to indoctrinate children into the religion of Islam,” Mr. Mawyer stated. “It must be removed immediately.” (Source:

An Angry Freedom Caucus Responds To Trump’s 2018 Threat

After Trump drew ‘first blood’ this morning with a tweet threatening to fight Freedom Caucus members in the 2018 mid-term elections, a pair of House representatives have fired back with aggressive tweets of their own implying that Trump’s healthcare plan was evidence that he had “succumbed to the D.C. Establishment.” (Source:

Congress Sold Your Privacy to the Corporations

Your private Internet based information on the most intimate details of your life will soon be public record. A federal law has been overturned, barely, but overturned nonetheless. If Trump fails to veto the legistlation, very soon, Internet providers will not be required to ask permission to sell their own customers’ Internet browsing habits. This include violtating HIPPA medical privacy laws which includes the selling of your medical information. (Source:

Report: Chinese Investment in U.S. Aviation Raises Concerns, Undermining U.S. National Security

Since 2005, the Chinese have merged with or acquired 12 U.S. aviation companies, created three joint ventures, and gone into nine other agreements or failed deals. According to the report, this averages to about one or two investments in U.S. aviation a year.

“Over the past decade, Chinese investors have ventured outside of China by acquiring U.S. aviation companies, previously unheard of given that most investment was into China,” the report states. “Although the [Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] or export controls appeared to have been followed in all cases, these investments raise concerns of inadvertent technology transfer that might undermine U.S. national security and competitiveness.” (Source:

Current events are certainly in harmony with what Gabriel told Terry Bennett in 2001 regarding three seven year periods: 2008 – 20015 economic trouble in the world followed in 2015 – 2021 great changes in government followed in 2022 – 2028 rise of one-world religion. It seems like millions of demons have been released from Hell and are possessing half or more of our country. Keep in mind that only 27 million voted for Trump. South Korea sending their ex-president to prison must be giving Barry Soatoro restless sleep, not to mention the Clintons. If LePen wins in France on the 23rd of April she has promised to stop all Muslim immigration which will cause riots and the total breakdown of the EEC.
