Italian Deputy Prime Minister and anti-immigration leader Matteo Salvini has fired back after German Chancellor Angela Merkel claimed she wouldn’t let his party work with her in the European Parliament.

The two clashed just a week before the European elections.

“We don’t want to stand with people who have ruined Europe for all these years,” Salvini replied to Merkel’s dismissal of his anti-immigrant League party. In an interview with the Italian newspaper La Stampa, Angela Merkel excluded the possibility of an alliance between any right-wing and anti-establishment party with her center-right European People's Party (EPP).

'Migration alone is enough to show why we would never open up to Mr. Salvini’s party.'

Merkel’s harsh words didn’t upset Italy’s new anti-immigrant leader. Salvini had never expressed a wish to ally with the German chancellor. Instead, he had invited the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who is strongly opposed to Merkel’s open-border policy, to be part of the Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) right wing group in the European Parliament.

We don’t want anything to do with Merkel and Macron, who have destroyed this European Union. We want to save Europe from the bureaucrats, the bankers and the financiers that have ruined it all these years.

The European elections will be held between May 23 and 26 this year. The centre-right EPP and centre-left Socialist and Democrats (S&D) are forecast to lose their combined majority in the European Parliament. The Brexit Party and Salvini’s coalition of Europe of Nations and Freedom are instead projected to make major wins.

R ~ Salvini pretty much sums up how the people of France and Germany feel about Macron and Merkel. These two have utterly destroyed Europe and should be hung by the neck till dead.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – Anna News released a never before seen video that chronicles the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) massive advance across northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate recently.

In the Anna News video, the Syrian Arab Army can be seen attacking and capturing several areas, forcing the militants to fall back towards the Idlib Governorate.

The video also shows the Syrian and Russian forces scoring direct hits on the militant defenses in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

The Syrian Arab Army is still on the offensive at this time; however, the high command will now have to make the decision about whether or not to push into the Zawiya Mountains of Idlib, which is a major stronghold for Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

If the Syrian Army is given the green light to push into the Zawiya Mountains, this could be one of the most violent battles of the Syrian conflict.

R ~ So the UN council meets within hours of this Syrian offensive to rid Idlib of the scum the west has hired to unseat Assad. As the narrator states, they met to stop Syria from wiping out these western proxies. We are at war and the people of the west are all on the wrong side, led by their noses by the jews running the world, who are the source of all the tension and wars in the Middle East and anywhere where they can exploit, defraud, steal and control. Wake up people and reign in the jew and atheists that lead you while claiming to represent you, your chidren and your future. It will be Stalinist Russia all over again but escalated ten fold.

The upgraded export version of the air defense missile and artillery system Pantsir-S1M has acquired the ability to effectively hit all types of drones, the High Precision Systems holding company’s deputy CEO for foreign economic activity, Sergei Mikhailov, told TASS on Thursday.

The upgrade work was carried out on the basis of experience gained during the Syrian campaign.

“It is very important that the range of hittable targets has been greatly expanded on the basis of the results we obtained in Syria. Corresponding amendments have been introduced. The system can now hit any types of drones effectively,” Mikhailov said.

The new missile’s range has been increased to 30 kilometers.

“With the introduction of the new missile the system’s range has been increased to 30 kilometers. Respectively, we will have two types of missiles – near and longer range ones,” he said.

Mikhailov remarked that the new system was meant for foreign markets. The Pantsir-S1M is in the final phase of preliminary tests at one of Russia’s test sites.

“It is being tested at a proving ground in Russia. Most of the preliminary trials have been carried out already,” he said.

Terrorists in Syria made several attempts to attack the Russian airbase Hmeymim with makeshift drones and bombard it with rockets. The airbase is protected by the Pantsir-S1 system (basic version).

The Defense Ministry says the system demonstrated its high effectiveness in countering such threats.

The system Pantsir is meant for the close range defense of civilian and military facilities, including long-range air defense systems. An upgraded system Pantsir-SM is being developed for the Russian armed forces.

The South American state has recently been suffering from a severe political crisis, which has been gravely worsened by the imposition of American sanctions and Washington's support for the self-proclaimed interim president and opposition leader, Juan Guaido, who is accused of attempting a coup in the country.

The US Department of Transportation has ordered that all air travel between the US and Venezuela, including passenger and cargo flights, be suspended, citing the alleged violence around Venezuelan airports caused by the ongoing political crisis.

"The public interest requires an immediate suspension of foreign air transportation between the United States and Venezuelan airports. Therefore […] I am suspending the authority of all US air carriers and foreign air carriers to provide foreign air transportation to or from Venezuelan airports", Elaine Chao Secretary of Transportation said.

US Law Enforcement Officials Raid Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC
The suspension came following a request from the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS argued that the situation in the Latin American state threatens the safety of "passengers, aircraft, and crew traveling to or from" Venezuela.

The political situation in Venezuela rapidly destabilised after opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself an interim president of the country and called for ousting democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro. The US and a number of other Western states have supported Guaido's claims, while Russia, China, Turkey, and numerous more countries have condemned the move and supported Maduro.

At the end of April 2019, Guaido attempted to organise a coup, calling on the country's military to join him in an effort to overthrow Maduro, but his efforts ultimately failed. After the failed attempt, several opposition figures fled the country, while the Venezuelan Army pledged loyalty to the elected president.

Maduro has slammed Guaido as a US puppet, stating that he is a tool in Washington's efforts to forcibly change the government in Venezuela. He namely accused the opposition leader of being involved in US-organised sabotage at Venezuela's largest power plant, which led to country-wide blackouts that lasted for weeks.

At the same time, the US officials repeatedly noted that Washington hasn't ruled out a "military option" in resolving the Venezuelan political crisis. Juan Guaido also hasn't ruled out such an option and has even requested consultations with the US Southern Command.

R ~ Trump prepares Venezuela for a n0fly zone as a prelude to bombing, the USGs favorite way to kill from 10k feet from the air, if...BIG if... they have the nerve to do so. Those oil reserves offshore sure are tempting. The shipping costs alone are worth the effort to privatize the lot for the OilCos. national security don't you know?

US Cop Fires Five Bullets, Kills Woman Shouting She's Pregnant

An officer with Texas' Baytown Police Department came under fire this week after cellphone video surfaced showing him discharging his department-issued firearm five times during a confrontation with woman believed to be pregnant. The woman died at the scene.

The officer-involved shooting incident unfolded at the Brixton Apartment complex in Baytown, Texas, at roughly 10:40 p.m. local time on Monday. Local media reports indicate that the unidentified officer, who is an 11-year veteran with the force, initially approached 44-year-old Pamela Turner because he knew multiple warrants had been issued for her arrest for prior alleged offenses.

Video of the altercation shows that things quickly escalated between the officer and Turner as the law enforcement official attempted to place Turner in handcuffs. At that time, she can be heard yelling out to the officer that she was simply walking home.

​"You're actually harassing me," Turner says after she managed to break free from the officer's grip. "You're actually harassing me."

The two eventually land on the ground, with the officer standing over Turner, after the officer's stun gun is deployed. "Why? Why? I didn't do anything to you," Turner says as the struggle continues.

"I'm pregnant," are the last words that Turner yells before the officer discharges his firearm. Video of the deadly confrontation cuts off seconds after Turner's body slumps to the ground.

A statement released by the department's Lt. Steve Dorris reveals that during the struggle Turner somehow managed to gain control of the officer's stun gun and deploy it on him. It was this move that ultimately prompted the officer to fire multiple bullets at Turner. The release goes on to note that Turner was pronounced dead at that scene and that she was struck at least once.

Antoinette, Turner's sister, told local station KPRC that the officer was her sister's neighbor and that her sibling had previously filed complaints against the cop for harassing her. She also revealed that her sister was on medication for schizophrenia. Antoinette was unable to confirm whether Turner was pregnant.

Officials have not yet confirmed whether the officer did in fact live near Turner or if complaints had been filed by Turner.

Residents of the apartment complex told the station that Turner was harmless and that she typically just walked around the neighborhood with her pet. "She would walk her dog. That's all she did was walk her dog and pick up trash… She didn't mess with anybody. It was just her and her dog," resident Jonathan Little said.

Investigators are reportedly attempting to get in contact with the individual who recorded the confrontation and shared it on social media. Dorris told reporters on the scene that he was shocked someone recorded the event.

"It's unfortunate that somebody takes a tragic incident like this and posts it on social media," Dorris said. "It's extremely disrespectful for everybody involved, but that's the day and age we live in with social media."

It's unclear whether the officer involved in the incident captured the events on his bodycam.

Per department policy, the officer has been placed on three days of paid administrative leave, the Baytown reported. The shooting is also being investigated by officials with the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

R ~ and what were the warrants for alleged offenses about? Traffic fines? Murder? The cops out there are on meth.

When I was younger I would have never guessed that the Jews would have had such a powerful influence on the formation and corruption of the true gospel. I now believe that these followers of Moloch hired Saul of Tarsus to derail Christianity at its inception. He was largely successful but not 100% successful. This is why bibles are allowed to be sold and churches allowed to thrive. This is why the founders of America were all Freemasons and also “Christian”. And why the founders of Mormonism were also Freemasons.

Saudi halts pumping on major oil pipeline after Yemeni drone strike

Tue May 14, 2019 11:20AM [Updated: Tue May 14, 2019 01:55PM ]

The map shows two of pumping stations on the East-West pipeline route in Saudi Arabia, which were targeted in
Yemen’s retaliatory raids on May 14, 2019.


The Saudi energy minister says the kingdom has stopped pumping crude oil on a major pipeline across the country after retaliatory drone strikes carried out by Yemeni army forces and their allies.

Khalid A. Al-Falih said the national petroleum and natural gas company, Saudi Aramco, on Tuesday halted oil pumping on the pipeline from the oil-rich Eastern Province to the Red Sea, while the damage was being evaluated and its two targeted pumping stations were being repaired.

“Saudi Aramco took precautionary measures and temporarily stopped operation of the pipeline, as it is evaluating the situation and working on restoring the operations of the affected pump station and the pipeline,” he said in a statement published by state news agency SPA.

He described the attack “an act of terrorism,” asserting that Saudi oil output and exports for crude and refined products were continuing without disruption.

The 1,200-kilometer (750-mile) pipeline, which reportedly has a capacity of at least five million barrels per day, carries crude oil from Saudi Arabia’s main eastern fields to the Red Sea port city of Yanbu in the west.

Yemeni army forces and their allies have fired a Badr-1 ballistic missile at an Aramco oil refinery in Saudi Arabia’s southern border region of Jizan.


The targeted pumping stations are located in the towns of Dawadmi and Afif, which lie in the Najd region west of the capital, Riyadh.

Earlier in the day, an unnamed Yemeni military source told Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that Yemeni soldiers, backed by allied fighters from Popular Committees, launched a major operation against the strategic economic target in Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s devastating military aggression and siege of the impoverished country.

The source added that seven unmanned aerial vehicles were involved in the attacks.

Meanwhile, global oil prices rose in the aftermath of Yemeni drone strikes on the two pumping stations belonging to state oil company Saudi Aramco.


PressTV-Oil jumps after Saudi Arabia says tankers targeted
Oil futures rise on increasing concerns about supply disruptions in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia says two of its oil tankers were targeted in a "sabotage attack”.


Brent crude futures were at $70.79 a barrel at 1035 GMT, up 56 cents or 0.80%.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $61.35 per barrel, up 31 cents or 0.51%.

Furthermore, Saudi Arabia’s main stock index, the Tadawul, was down 1.5% at midday London time.

The development came only two days after Saudi Arabia said two of its oil tankers were among those attacked in an unspecified “sabotage operation” off the coast of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.


PressTV-UAE confirms vessels targeted by 'sabotage' near port
After initially denying the reports of a huge fire that engulfed several large vessels, the UAE has confirmed that some "commercial ships" were targeted in a "sabotage" attack.


Fujairah port is the only terminal in the UAE located on the Arabian Sea coast. The small emirate has an oil terminal and a pipeline that delivers crude oil from Abu Dhabi which sits on the majority of UAE oil reserves.

‘Yemeni drone strikes in line with right to self defense’

Separately, a member of the Political Council of the Houthi Ansarullah movement described Yemeni drone strikes against strategic targets inside Saudi Arabia and the UAE as in line with the right of self defense, stating that Yemeni forces will cease such aerial assaults once the Riyadh and Abu Dhabi regime change course and put an end to their military aggression.

“Following Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s flagrant disregard for our demand to stop the onslaught and persistence on the blockade of Yemen, Yemeni forces launch attacks against targets in the heart of these countries high on their agenda," said Mohammad al-Bukhaiti.


PressTV-‘Several Saudi soldiers slain in Yemeni drone strike’
Yemeni forces targeted an area in the kingdom’s southern border region of Asir.


Moreover, Deputy Yemeni Minister of Information, Fahmi al-Yusufi, said the drone strikes carry a clear message to Saudis.

“They are within the range of our attacks, and US battle ships cannot rescue them. The Yemeni army, which previously did not even have Kalashnikov rifles in inventory, can now produce drones that infiltrate into Saudi Arabia and the UAE. We are fully prepared to defend our soil. These attacks attest to our military progress despite the ongoing sea, land and air blockade on Yemen,” he said.

Meanwhile, spokesman for the Ansarullah movement, Mohammed Abdul-Salam, also commented on the issue, saying, “The attacks on Saudi oil installations were in response to the massacre of Yemeni people. The Yemeni nation has no option but to defend itself in the face of the Saudi-led coalition’s impudence and its systematic terrorist acts, which are being supported by the United States and other Western states.”

Colonel Aziz Rashid, a Yemeni military expert, also said the air raids were in response to Saudi attacks during the holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, and proved the failure of US-built Patriot missile system to protect Saudi Arabia against Yemeni assaults.

Rashid added the drone strikes will seriously down Saudi and UAE stocks and will eventually result in capital flight from the two Persian Gulf countries.

“This operation will fairly undermine the morale of Saudi and Emirati troops, who are heavily depending on arsenals filled with munitions bought from the United States, Britain, France and other Western countries,” he pointed out.


PressTV-Seven more Yemenis killed in new Saudi-led strikes
At least seven people, including women and children, have been killed in fresh Saudi airstrikes against Yemen's southwestern province of Dhale.


Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, back to power and crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

According to a December 2018 report by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, the Saudi-led war has claimed the lives of over 60,000 Yemenis since January 2016.

The war has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. The UN said in a report in December 2018 that over 24 million Yemenis are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including 10 million suffering from extreme levels of hunger.

US police raid Venezuelan embassy to evict pro-Maduro activists defending it from ‘illegal seizure’

Pro-Maduro activists occupying the Venezuelan embassy in Washington have refused to vacate the premises in defiance of a notice threatening them with arrest and police entering the building but stopping short of evicting everyone.

“We are expecting the police to come in and violate the Vienna convention with their fictional government, nongovernment claiming that we should leave,” the Embassy Civilian Protection Collective said in a video message shortly before the police arrived at the doors of the diplomatic premises to the cheers of the pro-Guaido camp outside.

We’re going to be prepared to be arrested. We’re not going to leave voluntarily.

At least four embassy ‘protectors’ have remained inside the building and could be seen through the windows – even after police entered and left, apparently stopping short of forcefully evicting everyone - for now.

Despite their resolve to defend the diplomatic mission from “illegal seizure” by Guaido-appointed US representative Carlos Vecchio, many of the activists have left the embassy – apparently tired of the siege and worried about the threat of arrest – after a notice, which was not signed by any US government agency, urged them to “depart immediately” from the building in which they have lived for the last 34 days.

 This notice recognizing a non-existent government was just posted on the back door of the Venezuelan embassy by federal authorities. Cops are currently clearing out pro-Guaido tent encampments outside and could be entering the building, will update soon.

“The United States does not recognize the authority of the former Maduro regime or any of its former representatives to allow any individuals to lawfully enter, remain on this property, or take any action with respect to this property,” a notice taped to the door of the building earlier in the day read.

Amid the standoff for control of the building, Venezuela’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs for North America reminded Washington that an intrusion would be a breach of international law. “The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has not authorized the entry of police officers into the former Embassy building in Washington, DC. This intrusion is yet another violation of international law by US authorities and aggression against Venezuela,” Carlos Ron said on Twitter.

The crisis surrounding the Venezuelan embassy in Washington began after US authorities forced diplomats loyal to President Maduro to leave the premises more than one month ago. Just before departing for Caracas, the diplomats appointed by Maduro allowed the peace activists to occupy the building.

 Popular Resistance members Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese are among at least the four people who remain in Venezuelan embassy to oppose Trump takeover of embassy.

A failed US-backed coup attempt in Venezuela inflamed the situation at the embassy, with the pro-Guaido camp blocking any attempts by activists to sneak supplies inside. Several people were arrested as they attempted to throw food and hygiene products through the open windows, while authorities cut the power and water supply to the diplomatic compound.

R ~ The USG has gone quite mad. Like kings they make declarations without any basis in reality and expect everyone to play their game, that no one wants to play. Their modus operandi remains the same of every tyranny that ever came to the fore. The same psychopathy of their Marxist forefathers is now being exhibited ion plain sight. the same result will follow, a tyranny in which millions will die before the wall they are building around their buildings will come down around their ears. Guess it will be just too bad for all you millions still asleep.
