MOAI KING WILLIAM IV Party leader Matt Taylor has insisted he is a credible candidate to be the next Prime Minister. Despite coming last in the 2015 Brighton Kemptown general election with just 69 votes, Taylor said he could replace Theresa May in 10 Downing Street.

The Moai King William IV party leader told BBC Ones The Andrew Marr Show, I think its perfectly plausible, actually, as leader of Britains newest political party, my job is to be the alternative Prime Minister.

Championing the forgotten memory of King Arthur II and representing the surrogate King William IV, John Wanoa from New Zealand, Taylor said, I think British politics is in a remarkable state of disaster. You have got the Conservative party committing false flag events, while fleecing the British public dry. You have got a Labour party of wolves in sheep clothing and the Liberal party lead by a granddad.

I, and the Moai King William IV party, are the real alternative.

Asked if the Moai King William IV party is a credible political party, Taylor said, If British party politics starts to break down, if the traditional structures start to break up, and that could well happen, we are perfectly positioned with amazing and wondrous policies guaranteed to save the nation.

The Revolutionary Poop-le Writings - Gilad Atzmon

GUPS_Potty_Training.jpg Share

By Gilad Atzmon

Poopootov cocktails (plastic or glass jars filled with a mix of human excrement and water) have become the prime anarchist weapons in the revolutionary struggle toward a utopian diverse universe. In America and other Identitarian battlefronts around the world there have been repeated incidents of social justice heroes hitting their enemies with cocktail missiles made of urine, poop and other juicy ingredients that originate from the human body. Antifa is not alone in its choice, in Venezuela it is actually the anti socialist anarchists led by Henrique Capriles Radonski who are excitedly using poopootov ballistics. 

I wonder, what is it that motivates young revolutionaries to throw their excrement on others? What kind of zeal leads to such a disgusting crude dismissal of otherness? What are the political and ideological roots of this emerging pervasive new ethos?

Francoist Clampdown in Catalonia Rigged Game

DQ here: Barcelona is in a heightened state of anxiety right now as the Guardia Civil expands its Operation Anubis, fittingly named after the Egyptian god of death, into just about every nook and cranny of Catalonias government institutions. Im working on a couple of pieces, including one about Catalonia for WS which should be ready by the end of the day, but in the meantime I leave you with part of a piece by former UK ambassador Craig Murray which highlights the Francoist origins of the current Spanish government the same government that a couple of years ago outlawed all forms of protest it doesnt like in the Orwellian-termed Citizens Security law, more popularly known as the Gag Law (Ley Mordaza).

Francoist Clampdown in Catalonia

There is a peculiar reluctance in the British and other European mainstream media to state the truth about the very real Francoist origins of the Spanish government. The current government of Spain are the direct political heirs of Franco and that many of their ministers have personal and family connections to his rule. Rajoy, Spains current Prime Minister, started his political career in 1981 by joining the Peoples Alliance, a party founded in 1979 and led by 7 of Francos ministers to carry on the Francoist legacy. The Peoples Alliance became the major component in the now governing Peoples Party. It is a directly Francoist party.

The fascist instincts of the Madrid government when faced with the entirely legitimate desire for a democratic vote on Catalonian Independence are therefore part of the very political DNA of the ruling party. It is a truth which it is more convenient for the Establishment to avoid, particularly in Britain where it is feared Catalan Independence might encourage Scottish Independence.

The European Commission has shown commendable rectitude in warning both Poland and Hungary in strong terms of the consequences of their right wing lurches away fro democracy. It would be good to see the Commission and European governments warning Spain now, for actions which are a bigger threat to democracy than the Polish or Hungarian right have so far dared. But that would not suit the agenda of the neo-liberal ruling Establishment, so do not hold your breath.

Link UK Against Fluoridation

Fluoride again will be added to Albuquerques water supply.

Water utility board members voted 5-2 Wednesday to approve a $250,000 appropriation that will allow the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority to buy the equipment needed to resume supplemental drinking-water fluoridation, which the utility halted in 2011.
The decision followed nearly an hour of passionate pleas by both opponents and supporters of fluoridation similar to comments expressed at two earlier public hearings on the issue.
At the end of the day, when theres a question about science, we need to listen to the scientists, board member and Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis said before he voted in favor of resuming fluoridation. Davis withdrew his proposal for an advisory question on the 2018 general election ballot that would have asked Bernalillo County voters whether they support or oppose supplemental fluoridation.
Voting against the appropriation were Albuquerque Councilors Klarissa Pea and Trudy Jones. Joining Davis in support were Bernalillo County Commissioners Debbie OMalley, Wayne Johnson and Maggie Hart Stebbins and Albuquerques Chief Administrative Officer Rob Perry, who represents Mayor Richard Berry on the board..............
Shame the latest research was published after the vote, it may well have changed the decision.

Mit deutschen Waffen German Foreign Policy

(Eigener Bericht) - Das fr Montag angekndigte Referendum zur Abspaltung der kurdischsprachigen Gebiete des Irak grndet auf jahrelanger Untersttzung der Bundesregierung fr die dortige Autonomieregion. Der Barzani-Clan, der die Regionalregierung kontrolliert, unterhlt schon seit Jahrzehnten gute Verbindungen zu fhrenden Politikern von CDU und CSU. Die Autonomieregion selbst wird seit 2005 von Berlin systematisch gefrdert - durch wirtschaftliche Hilfen, durch den Aufbau deutscher Institutionen und jngst durch die Ausbildung und Aufrstung der Peschmerga zu einer schlagkrftigen Truppe. Geschah Letzteres offiziell, um einen Verbndeten im Krieg gegen den IS zu strken, so knnten die Peschmerga ihre deutschen Waffen jetzt auch nutzen, um eine Abspaltung des Gebiets bei Bedarf militrisch durchzusetzen. Unter den Augen der Bundeswehr haben sie zudem unter dem Deckmantel des Kriegs gegen den IS sogenannte ethnische Suberungen in Orten durchgefhrt, die bislang nicht zur Kurdischen Autonomieregion gehrten. Damit soll beim bevorstehenden Referendum die gewnschte prokurdische Mehrheit gesichert werden. Berlin uert aktuell allerdings Einwnde gegen den Zeitpunkt des Sezessionsreferendums.

Israels chief stooge at Westminster shames us again Philosophers Stone

By Stuart Littlewood

As prime minister, I am proud to say that I support Israel. And it is absolutely right that we should mark the vital role that Britain played a century ago in helping to create a homeland for the Jewish people. 

Thus spake Theresa May the other day as she welcomed members of the Jewish community to 10 Downing Street. But by focusing on creating a homeland for the Jewish people shes also celebrating the hell that Balfours Declaration created for the gentle Palestinians and for the rest of the region. Born of that letter, the pen of Balfour, and of the efforts of so many people, is a remarkable country, said May, apparently blind to the reality.

Proud of unspeakable misery, dispossession and displacement

Right now were on the run-up to the centenary of what is arguably the biggest foreign policy blunder in British history: the Balfour Declaration. In 1917 Arthur Balfour, Foreign Secretary, bowed to Zionist demands for a homeland for the Jews in Palestine and gave an undertaking that set the world on course for long-term turmoil and, for the native Palestinians, unspeakable misery, dispossession and displacement. It was a criminal conspiracy. And Balfour was an A-list idiot who bragged that he wasnt even going to consult the local Arab population about this theft of their homes and lands.

Yet he remains a hero of the Conservative Party which, led by Theresa May, plans to celebrate this hundred-year running sore as Lord Sydenham called it in great style, inviting Israels prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu to the festivities. Thats if the mad-dog warmonger isnt under arrest by then on imminent charges of corruption back home.

I will always do whatever it takes to keep our Jewish community safe, May added. Through our new definition of anti-Semitism we will call out anyone guilty of any language or behaviour that displays hatred towards Jews because they are Jews. We will actively encourage the use of this definition by the police, the legal profession, universities and other public bodies.

The Silencing of Dissent Rigged Game

By Chris Hedges and cross-posted from Truth Dig

The ruling elites, who grasp that the reigning ideology of global corporate capitalism and imperial expansion no longer has moral or intellectual credibility, have mounted a campaign to shut down the platforms given to their critics. The attacks within this campaign include blacklisting, censorship and slandering dissidents as foreign agents for Russia and purveyors of fake news.

No dominant class can long retain control when the credibility of the ideas that justify its existence evaporates. It is forced, at that point, to resort to crude forms of coercion, intimidation and censorship. This ideological collapse in the United States has transformed those of us who attack the corporate state into a potent threat, not because we reach large numbers of people, and certainly not because we spread Russian propaganda, but because the elites no longer have a plausible counterargument.

The elites face an unpleasant choice. They could impose harsh controls to protect the status quo or veer leftward toward socialism to ameliorate the mounting economic and political injustices endured by most of the population. But a move leftward, essentially reinstating and expanding the New Deal programs they have destroyed, would impede corporate power and corporate profits. So instead the elites, including the Democratic Party leadership, have decided to quash public debate. The tactic they are using is as old as the nation-statesmearing critics as traitors who are in the service of a hostile foreign power. Tens of thousands of people of conscience were blacklisted in this way during the Red Scares of the 1920s and 1950s. The current hyperbolic and relentless focus on Russia, embraced with gusto by liberal media outlets such as The New York Times and MSNBC, has unleashed what some have called a virulent New McCarthyism.

The corporate elites do not fear Russia. There is no publicly disclosed evidence that Russia swung the election to Donald Trump. Nor does Russia appear to be intent on a military confrontation with the United States. I am certain Russia tries to meddle in U.S. affairs to its advantage, as we do and did in Russiaincluding our clandestine bankrolling of Boris Yeltsin, whose successful 1996 campaign for re-election as president is estimated to have cost up to $2.5 billion, much of that money coming indirectly from the American government. In todays media environment Russia is the foil. The corporate state is unnerved by the media outlets that give a voice to critics of corporate capitalism, the security and surveillance state and imperialism, including the network RT America.

US, South Korea, China and Russia Practice for War off Coast of North Korea Rigged Game

Cross-posted from The

East Asia  This week started off with what Reuters called a flurry of military drills in East Asia following the latest missile test by Kim Jong-uns regime. From the news agencys piece on Monday:

The U.S. military staged bombing drills with South Korea over the Korean peninsula and Russia and China began naval exercises ahead of a U.N. General Assembly meeting on Tuesday where North Koreas nuclear threat is likely to loom large.

The flurry of military drills came after Pyongyang fired another mid-range ballistic missile over Japan on Friday and the reclusive North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3 in defiance of United Nations sanctions and other international pressure.

In a press release announcing the United States joint exercises with the South exercises that also involved elements from the military of Japan Captain Cassandra Gesecki of U.S. Pacific Command made it clear the drills were directly related to the Norths most recent launch:

United States Air Force and Marine Corps aircraft joined Japan Air Self-Defense Force and Republic of Korea Air Force aircraft in a sequenced bilateral show of force over the Korean Peninsula September 17, in response to North Koreas launch of an intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) over Japan on September 14.

According to Gesecki, the drills were executed using two U.S. B-1B bombers from Andersen Air Force base in Guam, four U.S. F-35B jets from the Marine Corps, four South Korean F-15K fighters, and four F-2 jets from Japan.

At the same time, China and Russia are conducting coordinated exercises of their own in the region. From The Independent:

Russia and China have begun major military drills less than 100 miles from the North Korean border, amid continuing tensions over the isolated states nuclear ambitions.

Higher levels of fluoride in urine associated with lower intelligence in children UK Against Fluoridation


September 19/2017

Prof Howard Hu Fluoride in the urine of pregnant women shows a correlation with lower measures of intelligence in their children, according to University of Toronto researchers who conducted the first study of its kind and size to examine fluoride exposure and multiple states of neurodevelopment.

Our study shows that the growing fetal nervous system may be adversely affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure, said Dr. Howard Hu, the studys principal investigator and Professor of Environmental Health, Epidemiology and Global Health at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. It also suggests that the pre-natal nervous system may be more sensitive to fluoride compared to that of school-aged children.

Tap water and dental products have been fluoridated in communities in Canada and the United States (as well as milk and table salt in some other countries) by varying amounts for more than 60 years to prevent cavities and improve bone health. In recent years, fierce debate over the safety of water fluoridation particularly for childrens developing brains has fueled researchers to explore the issue and provide evidence to inform national drinking water standards.

There are some known side effects of fluoride, for example dental defects like mild staining are common among those ingesting recommended levels of fluoride in the United States and Canada. Skeletal fluorosis excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones is much less common and only observed at levels of fluoride in the water that are more than 5 to 10 times higher than those recommended.

Relatively little is known, with confidence, about fluorides impact on neurodevelopment, said Hu, whose research team included experts from the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico, University of Toronto, University of Michigan, McGill University, Indiana University, Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Harvard School of Public Health.

The study, Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6-12 Years of Age in Mexico, published today in Environmental Health Perspectives, analyzed data from 287 mother-child pairs in Mexico City that were part of the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project, which recruited pregnant women from 1994 to 2005 and has continued to follow the women and their children ever since.

Glitch in the Matrix: 1950s TV Show Featured a Character Named Trump Defrauding Simple Townsfolk with Promises About a Wall Philosophers Stone

Yet another piece of evidence* that the simulation were living in is buggy AF: an episode of the 1950s TV Western Trackdown has been found that featured a con-man named Trump, who promises to build a wall around the town to save them from certain death:

Narrator: The people were ready to believe. Like sheep they ran to the slaughterhouse. And waiting for them was the high priest of fraud.

Trump: I am the only one. Trust me. I can build a wall around your homes that nothing will penetrate.

Townperson: What do we do? How can we save ourselves?

Trump: You ask how do you build that wall. You ask, and Im here to tell you.


The episode is filled with conversations that seem entirely appropriate to the debates of 2017. When Ranger Hoby Gilman goes to the local judge in an effort to get Trump arrested for fraud, the judge replies In order to arrest him, a sheriff has to have a charge, and Trump hasnt given him a thing to go on. The judge then goes on to point out that Gilman has no chance of convincing the scared townspeople that Trump is a con-man, because a big lie that scares people is a difficult thing to counter:

I know how you feel; maybe I agree with you. I know these people pretty well, and right now theres nothing in the world that could change their mindtheyre not going to listen. You may as well try to spit out a forest fire.

Its a funny thing when we were kids, we were all afraid of the dark. And when we grew up we werent afraid anymore, but its funny how a big lie can make us all kids again.

Die haben da ASICs mit 30nm Strukturbreite am Start, eine Kooperation mit IBM. Der Vorgnger war noch 90nm. Und der Vorgnger hat noch DRAM verwendet, hier sind sie auf SRAM umgestellt. Das zeigt, dass es sich hier entweder um eine Verzweiflungstat oder ein "Geld spielt keine Rolle"-Szenario handelt, denn in normalen Computern wird SRAM fr die Caches in der CPU verwendet, und fr nichts greres, weil es viel zu teuer wre. Das zieht niemand auch nur in Erwgung. Cray hatte damals in ihren legendren Kisten SRAM als Hauptspeicher verbaut. Daher waren die auch so teuer.

Der Punkt ist jedenfalls: Wenn jemand zu mir kme, "Geld spielt keine Rolle, wir mssen Krypto knacken" sagt, dann wren das ungefhr die Rahmenparameter, die mir als unrealistische rechts-unten-Option einfallen wrden. Ich will gar nicht wissen, was so ein Gert kostet.

Scrollt mal ein bisschen runter. Da seht ihr eine Pixel-Art-Darstellung von einer Installation. Das ist eine Turnhalle, von der Gre her. Und das ist der Vorgnger des Vorgngers. Dieses Teil wird auch mindestens so gro sein.

Die gute Nachricht ist, dass das Angriffsmodell fr Krypto-Algorithmen genau ein Laden ist, der solche Hardware bauen wrde. Wenn ihr mindestens 2048-Bit RSA nehmt, und einen 256-Bit AES darber, dann kann das auch so eine Maschine nicht mal eben brechen.

Aber wir wissen jetzt, dass sie es wirklich versuchen wollen. Die, die sich jetzt echt Sorgen machen sollten, sind Leute, die keine ordentlichen Passwort-Hash-Verfahren verwenden. Das ist in der Praxis so die schimmeligste Krypto-Eiterbeule, die man vorfindet. So "MD5 vom Password" oder so.

brigens ist Passwort-Hashing in den letzten Jahren explizit mit Verfahren wie scrypt oder Argon2 auf das Bedrohungsszenario ASIC eingegangen, und haben Verfahren entworfen, die viel RAM-Zugriffe haben. Denn das ist die Achilles-Sehne von ASICs. Diese Dokumente sind jetzt schon ein paar Jahre lter. ASICs knnen zwar Algorithmen beschleunigen gegenber einer CPU, aber Speicherzugriffe sind immer noch langsam und man hat an ASICs im Allgemeinen Grenordnungen weniger Speicher als an normalen CPUs. Dieser Speicher-Faktor bei scrypt und Argon2 hat das Ziel, ASICs den Vorteil ihrer algorithmischen Beschleunigung nicht mehr ausspielen zu lassen. Die Frage ist jetzt, ob die NS...

Ein besonderes Verhltnis (II) German Foreign Policy

(Eigener Bericht) - Die brutalen Operationen der Streitkrfte Myanmars gegen die Minderheit der Rohingya verkomplizieren die geostrategisch motivierten Bestrebungen Berlins zur engeren Anbindung des Landes an die Bundesrepublik. Die Bundesregierung hat jngst Anstalten gemacht, die deutsch-myanmarischen Militrbeziehungen, die bis Ende der 1980er Jahre eine bedeutende Rolle spielten, wieder aufzunehmen; so ist zum Beispiel die Ausbildung myanmarischer Offiziere durch die Bundeswehr im Gesprch. Hintergrund ist, dass China einen Transportkorridor durch Myanmar errichtet, der die Versorgung der Volksrepublik mit Rohstoffen aus Mittelost und Afrika unabhngig von der "Strae von Malakka", einer vom Westen leicht zu sperrenden Meerenge in Sdostasien, sichern soll. Berlin hat seit der konomischen ffnung Myanmars gegenber dem Westen zunchst versucht, ber Vorfeldorganisationen der deutschen Auenpolitik sowie ber die Wirtschaft dem chinesischen Einfluss in Naypyitaw etwas entgegenzusetzen. Allerdings bleiben wirtschaftliche Erfolge bislang aus. Die Bundesregierung versucht nun, sich als Mittlerin bei einer Lsung des Konflikts mit den Rohingya in Stellung zu bringen.
