(Mohamed … Islamic State flag. Well then. May as well give up. The only thing we know is, this has nothing to do with Islam)

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a statement that Beijing “has made urgent representations” to Argentina, demanding a thorough investigation of the incident.
4. Anti-Trump Groups Threaten ‘Largest Civil Disobedience Action of the Century’
With little fanfare and almost no news media attention, some of the same radical groups involved in shutting down Donald Trump’s Chicago rally last week are plotting a mass civil disobedience movement to begin next month.
They intend to march across the East Coast in order to spark a “fire that transforms the political climate in America.”
The operation, calling itself Democracy Spring, is threatening “drama in Washington” with the “largest civil disobedience action of the century.” The radicals believe this will result in the arrest of thousands of their own activists.

6. White house obfuscates and stammers around the issue of Islamic State and Islamic genocide of minorities in the area to the point of absurdity and more
(The constant use of the word ‘ISIL’ is as insulting as it is stupid. And not one of the reporters could even ask WHO was doing the killing and WHY)
And now it seems that Sec State Kerry will miss the deadline on the genocide question.
Secretary of State John Kerry will miss this week’s congressional deadline for deciding whether atrocities by the Islamic State against Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria should be designated genocide.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Wednesday that Kerry is taking a “measured” approach and while his decision will come soon it will not meet Thursday’s deadline.
“He recognizes the seriousness of the atrocities committed by this terrorist group as well as the importance of this issue to its victims and survivors,” Toner told reporters. “Given the scope and the breadth of the analysis he’s contemplating, he will not have a final decision completed by the congressionally-mandated deadline tomorrow. However, this issue is clearly of the utmost importance to him as well as Congress, and we expect him to reach a decision very soon.”
“We don’t take lightly the issue of a delay like this. However, more critically, neither do we take lightly the gravity of the brutality perpetrated by (the Islamic State) on innocent people,” Toner said.
(The fact that this article has “Islamic State” in parenthesis likely means it was never actually said)

3 – The 200 mile national waters is not recognized by many nations but most South American nations try and enforce it. We need to pay close attention to how China reacts to this armed action against their flagged vessel in what most consider international waters. China is trying to take control of the navigation of the South China Sea but now is going ot have to react to another nation trying to enforce control over what is generally considered international waters.
This is very strange.
China wants one rule for them and another for everyone else.
Argentina, pathetic. They’re such a mess, they’ve got one response to the slightest challenge: SHOOT.
And they understand so little these days…
Iran has sunk huge sums of money into all Latin America, but especially Argentina. Over the last few decades, they’ve built a whole state within a state.
4 – The coming riots by the Soros funded Storm Troopers are going to be what most historians will consider as the opening rounds of the second civil war. As with all civil wars there will be great divisions between the sides and high emotions on both sides. This election and the resulting war will determine if the US remains a free nation peopled by free people or if we become another Marxist slave state.
4. Anti-Trump Groups Threaten ‘Largest Civil Disobedience Action of the Century’
So why is it legal for George Soros to put people up to disrupting elections and starting riots? Why is it OK for him and his kind to so concertedly work for the downfall of the USA without so much as a frown from the elite? At what point is the FBI going to say “enough is enough”? George and his rich communist friends have created an entire industry employing thousands of people, all dedicated to creating chaos and strife, and yet those in charge keep saying it’s OK and he’s just exercising his “democratic rights”. This Soros-funded group is threatening to go to Washington and do things that will get large numbers of them arrested. Why aren’t such evil intentions considered over the line? How bad is it going to have to get before someone at least reacts?
Chris the US has the tradition of the police and the military serving the people through the elected government. Now that the top elected official and his appointed assistants are actively working to destroy the US we are in uncharted territory. Plus we don’t know how deep the corruption in the bureaucrats runs, how many of them are actively opposing anyone doing something?
The police and military are going to wait until a strong leader is standing up for people or it is a choice between tyranny or a civilian or military coup. Obamas election was a coup on the part of the left and counter coups are not part of our history. Creating one is hard, especially with out history of civilian control of the police and military and the recent purge of the military leadership. What they are hoping is that the elections will solve the problem and that they don’t have to move deeper into uncharted territory. Events are moving to a point where they may not have the choice of waiting.
Smells like a RICO-offense. A conspiracy against the people and machinery of the USA.
Can’t anybody get Soros on income tax evasion at the very least? Has everybody been bought off?
