The American Dance of Life: A Handful of Unrelated but Connected Notes on the U.S. and War Dissident Voice

Diego Riveras painting at the beginning of this article is called Gloriosa victoria (Glorious Victory) and was done by him in 1954 as a protest against the U.S. overthrow of Guatemalas democratically elected government that same year. At the paintings center, U.S. Sec. of State John Foster Dulles shakes hands with the new (Washington-approved) president of Guatemala while behind them other U.S. officials hand out money to Guatemalan soldiers.

But the important thing is this. If youre a vet like he was, when you die the government suddenly appears out of nowhere to describe your death as the passing-on of an American hero, all past crimes absolved. The VA may have scorned your claim that your cancer resulted from your tour of duty at Area 9 of the Nevada Atomic Test Site, or it may have turned a blind eye to the symptoms you suffered after your exposure to napalm in Vietnam, or it may have been aggravated by your claim that you returned from Afghanistan with PTSD, but once youre dead everythings forgotten and the White House bellows

This mans a hero!

You see, thats how it happens. They bury you as a hero to hide the fact that when alive they treated you like shit.

*****

One event from almost thirty years ago left an indelible impression on me. It illustrated for me how society as a whole, including every institution and product and entertainment thats part of it, increasingly becomes a mass-delivery device for saturating us with the propaganda necessary for keeping us synced to whats psychologically required of us in order for the nations economic elites to retain power and grow wealthier. Just think of how often we buy a tee-shirt emblazoned with the name of the company which manufactured it. This shows how the U.S. economic (and cultural) system has conditioned us to do what would have been considered impossible years ago: to fork up our hard-earned cash for the privilege of advertising a manufacturers product with no cost to t...

Stop war on Gaza, demonstrations in Israel Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video is called Demonstration in Tel Aviv, Israel against the situation in Gaza. May 2018.

From the peace movement in Israel:

Emergency demonstrations throughout Israel: Stop the war! Move towards peace!

Press Release Nov. 13, 2018

Hebrew original forwarded by Standing Together media@standing-together.org, translation Adam Keller

Today at 20:00 Haifa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem

The Standing Together movement, along with various peace groups, will demonstrate today (Tuesday, Nov. 13) throughout the country, demanding a complete change of direction. Instead of war and fear and bloodshed we should lift the siege of Gaza, end the occupation, and actively pursue a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace.

The pain of suffering casualties, the fear of another night without sleep and the question why?` are now the lot of very many people. We want we must change this reality. This conflict has gone on far too long. Again and again it flares up. Again we hear arrogant statements about It is time to teach them a lesson which do not and should not give anyone a feeling of confidence.

We must take a new path. Residents of Southern Israel and residents of Gaza, Israelis and Palestinians only peace can guarantee security to all of us. Only peace will ensure quiet nights this is the only way. Let`s end for spreading hatred and sowing fear, let`s end this pain. Today, especially today, let us demand what should have taken place long ago, the only thing that can ensure life: lifting of the siege, ending the occupation and achieving Israeli-Palestinian peace. We deserve a happy ending to this sad and difficult story. `
The demonstrations will take place at:

Haifa UNESCO Square in the German Colony, at the foot of the Baha`i Gardens

Rabbi tells Israel to prepare for Biblical end-of-days war 'at any time' Signs of the Times

Rabbi Pinchas Winston, an acclaimed author and doomsayer, has warned that renewed clashes in the Gaza Strip or ongoing tensions between Israel and Iran over Syria may trigger the next major conflict, which, in turn, may see biblical end-times prophecy come true. Rabbi Pinchas Winston, whose works over the past two decades have dealt extensively with "The End of Days", has suggested that the IDF should be ready for a biblical war that may arrive "at any moment without any warning". He made a reference to a prophecy of the War of Gog and Magog from the Hebrew Bible, which precipitates the Messianic Redemption. According to the Jewish interpretation, Gog and Magog may be individuals, peoples or lands, and are viewed as Israel's enemies who will be defeated by the Messiah. "Any student of history knows that hindsight is 20-20 but in the moment, you never know what can set off a war. The First World War was set off by the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. The 2014 War in Gaza was set...

Birds survived dinosaurs, other birds extinct with them Dear Kitty. Some blog

From the University of California Berkeley in the USA:

Rare fossil bird deepens mystery of avian extinctions

Most complete North American enantiornithine fossil was aerodynamic equal of modern birds

November 13, 2018

Summary: Todays birds descend from a small number of bird species living before the dinosaur extinction. Some of the birds that went extinct, the enantiornithines, were actually more common than and out-competed modern bird ancestors. Analysis of a newly described fossil, the most complete known from the Americas, demonstrates, too, that the enantiornithines were as agile and strong in flight as the ancestors of modern birds. Why, then, did enantiornithines die out and modern birds flourish?

During the late Cretaceous period, more than 65 million years ago, birds belonging to hundreds of different species flitted around the dinosaurs and through the forests as abundantly as they flit about our woods and fields today.

But after the cataclysm that wiped out most of the dinosaurs, only one group of birds remained: the ancestors of the birds we see today. Why did only one family survive the mass extinction?

A newly described fossil from one of those extinct bird groups, cousins of todays birds, deepens that mystery.

The 75-million-year-old fossil, from a bird about the size of a turkey vulture, is the most complete skeleton discovered in North America of what are called enantiornithines (pronounced en-an-tea-or-neth-eens), or opposite birds. Discovered in the Grand Staircase-Escalante area of Utah in 1992 by University of California, Berkeley, paleontologist Howard Hutchison, the fossil lay relatively untouched in University of California Museum of Paleontology at Berkeley until doctoral student Jessie Atterholt learned about it in 2009 and asked to study it.

Atterholt and Hutchison collaborated with Jingmai OConner, the leading expert on...

"The National Debt Is Coming Due, Just Like We Told You" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

"The National Debt Is Coming Due, Just Like We Told You"
by Nick Gillespie

"By 2020, interest on the debt will cost more than Medicaid. By 2025, it will cost more than defense spending. And thats just the start. What happens when you borrow the equivalent of your annual income and those low, low teaser rates start to increase? Congratulations, America, youre about to find out.

The Wall Street Journal reports some non-shocking, non-surprising news: "In 2017, interest costs on federal debt of $263 billion accounted for 6.6% of all government spending and 1.4% of gross domestic product, well below averages of the previous 50 years. The Congressional Budget Office estimates interest spending will rise to $915 billion by 2028, or 13% of all outlays and 3.1% of gross domestic product.

It will spend more on interest than it spends on Medicaid in 2020; more in 2023 than it spends on national defense; and more in 2025 than it spends on all nondefense discretionary programs combined, from funding for national parks to scientific research, to health care and education, to the court system and infrastructure, according to the CBO."

A quick recap of our dismal national finances: The U.S. economy generates about $21 trillion in annual activity. Debt owed to the public comes to about $15.5 trillion, but when you add intra-governmental debt (which you should, because it represents...

Serbian Church 'doesn't recognize' Ukrainian church leaders' attempt to split from Russian Orthodox Church Signs of the Times

The Serbian Orthodox Church says it will not recognize a decision by the leadership of Orthodox Christianity to rehabilitate the leaders of two Ukrainian Orthodox churches breaking away from Moscow. The Serbian church's Holy Assembly of Bishops "does not recognize" Patriarch Filaret and Metropolitan Makariy or "their followers," a statement said on November 12. Ukraine has three Orthodox churches: the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate led by Patriarch Filaret; and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Metropolitan Makariy. The Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople last month agreed to recognize the autocephaly, or independence, of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Comment: Something that is not in Constantinople's power to do, at least not traditionally. That requires unanimity among the churches. As the Saker recently wrote when describing the situation: Second, crucial decisions, decisions which...

Following recent spike in lobbying, Amazon makes move to DC metro area OpenSecrets News

CEO and founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos speaks at a September event in Washington, D.C. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)

Amazon has had a close relationship with Washington, D.C. for some time now, but soon enough the two will be neighbors.

The company announced Tuesday that one of its two new headquarters will be located in Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia, an area that Amazon is attempting to rebrand as National Landing.

Amazon will have a location across the river from the nations capital, where it has steadily increased its lobbying and campaign contributions over the last decade.

Amazon ramped up its lobbying spending in 2015 $9.4 million compared to $4.9 million the year prior and never looked back. The company has spent $10.6 million on lobbyists so far this year and more than $44 million in the last four years.

The move brings Amazons second headquarters to a national defense-heavy area. Several defense contractors including industry giant Lockheed Martin and Pentagon offices are located in the Arlington neighborhood.

Though its known for its two-day free shipping, Amazon is heavily involved in national security-related lobbying. After winning a ...

Ten Days in Palestine: A Close-Up View of the Fatuity of the Two-State Solution MintPress News

JERUSALEM, PALESTINE In his speech at the party conference, U.K. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Lets give real support to end the oppression of the Palestinian people, a statement no other Western politician would dare to make. However, the latter part of Corbyns statement suggests that Britain must move to a genuine two-state solution of the Israel-Palestine conflict. While Corbyns record shows clearly that he cares about the plight of the Palestinian people and wishes to end their oppression, the two parts of this statement stand in contradiction to one another.

 

Ten days in Palestine

Being on the tail end of a ten-day trip to Palestine, and accompanying a few friends from the U.K., it is clear to me that ten days in Palestine is all one needs in order to experience the collapse of the prevailing political thinking regarding Palestine. All one needs is a commitment to travel throughout the country and to listen to people who actively oppose the oppression of the Palestinians and are prepared to expose it.

A visit to Palestine needs to begin with a simple lesson in geography, followed by another short lesson in history. Palestine stretches from Al-Jalil in the north to the Naqab desert in the south and from the Jordan River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. During a period of 12 months between the end of 1947 and the end of 1948, the country was plagued by a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing during which close to 600 towns and villages were destroyed and their population close to one million people forced into exile. For a detailed explanation of each destroyed town or village, an authorized guide from Zochrot an organization dedicated to keeping the memory of the Palestinian Naqba, or catastrophe, alive can accompany anyone to see the remains and hear the stories of these communities that are scattered throughout the country.

Driving throughout the country one will see Israeli towns side by side, or across the road from one another and, without even entering these towns, anyone paying attention will see enormous differences between them.

Video shows IDF bus burst into flames after being hit by Gaza missile Signs of the Times

A video has surfaced online showing an Israeli military bus being hit with an anti-tank missile near the Gaza border. The attack happened during a rapid escalation of violence between Israel and Hamas. The video, published Monday, begins with a long white bus parked behind the trees. Reportedly dozens of soldiers had just disembarked. Several figures can be seen standing behind the two white SUVs nearby. The bus starts moving, and, once it gets out in the open, it is suddenly hit with what the IDF described as a guided anti-tank missile.

Heavy weather: Earth to be battered by 'dark matter hurricane' for next million years Signs of the Times

As California burns, the Gulf Coast rebuilds and Indonesia is still reeling from a tsunami, what else could possibly go wrong? Well, apparently a 'hurricane' of dark matter travelling at 500 kilometers per second (310 mps). Scientists studying the nature of gravity and the movement of stars and planets discovered that the space between galaxies contains something else that we can't yet account for. Enter: Dark matter, an invisible and as-yet undetectable phenomenon believed to make up the bulk of matter across the universe. While we have never directly detected dark matter, and we're not entirely sure what it is, we know 'something' must be there. Think of it like wind in the sails of a ship: we can see its impact on the world right in front of us, but it might be difficult to point it out directly.

American autoworkers against Trumps xenophobia Dear Kitty. Some blog

Someone is getting paid millions to provoke racism and hatred

US autoworkers oppose anti-immigrant campaign

13 November 2018

Over the weekend, reporters for the WSWS Autoworker Newsletter spoke to Detroit area autoworkers about the fascistic campaign against asylum seekers being fomented by President Trump, a provocation that has been aided and abetted by the Democratic Party, which was deliberately silent on this issue during the midterm elections.

The president ranted against Central American immigrants who are traveling to the US to escape rampant violence in the region long ravaged by American imperialism, calling workers and their families seeking a better life invaders. The president has also sent thousands of US troops to the border area and said they should shoot migrants, including children, if they throw stones at the soldiers.

Time to step away from the keyboard: Stanford prof McFaul scoffs at idea of checking sources before tweeting Signs of the Times

Ex-envoy to Russia Michael McFaul has shrugged off criticism he received after being duped by a well-known parody account, arguing that checking sources on Twitter is often too time consuming. Sage words from a Stanford professor? McFaul, along with Obama-era UN ambassador Samantha Power, pounced on an anti-Trump tweet posted by a parody account that poses as North Korea's "official news feed." To his credit, McFaul deleted the offending tweet. But the celebrated Stanford scholar went one step further, issuing an extremely articulate and compelling defense for his oversight: Who even has time to check sources on Twitter?

Depressed and anxious Londoners medicating themselves to sleep blogfactory

Depressed and anxious Londoners say they are medicating themselves to sleep and almost two in five (37%) say they have had to see their doctor about the problem.

Almost two thirds (64%) of Londoners say they have used medication or alcohol to get to sleep.

Twelve per cent of those surveyed said they had taken antidepressants and fifteen per cent said they had taken anxiety medication just to get to sleep, according to a survey for Gravity Blankets by Atomik Research.

A further seven per cent say they have taken narcotics such as codeine, morphine or other opiate painkillers to get to sleep while fourteen per cent have taken sleeping tablets.

Four out of five (81%) adults in London say their worries keep them up at night, tossing and turning over their health, family and money.

Almost two fifths (37%) of Londoners surveyed said they had been to the doctor about their sleep problems.

The research showed that anxiety and depression play a major part in Londoners inability to get some shut-eye.

Over half (51%) of Londoners surveyed said they suffered from anxiety and 26% said they had suffered from depression.

Two in five (41%) described themselves as TATT or Tired All The Time.

Over a third (36%) of Londoners say they struggle to get to sleep at least three nights a week, with some of the biggest factors being unable to switch off, restlessness and thinking over to-do lists.

Ramadan Orders and Procedures Issued by Central Command (CENTCOM) The Black Vault

Background

Ramadan is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 2930 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.

With US troops deployed throughout Muslim countries, I requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) the rules, regulations and policies that were issued by CENTCOM to U.S. soldiers and personnel on how to act around the time of Ramadan.

I was not expecting it to take more than FOUR YEARS to get the requested documents, many of which were classified SECRET and had never been released to the public before.

Below, you will find the responsive documents. The documents included in the PDF are:

1. FRAGO Ramadan Procedures
2. FRAGO 903 Ramadan

Should We Do Away With Veterans Day Altogether? Truthdig RSS

This piece originally appeared on anti-war.com.

Veterans Day maybe we ought to drop the whole charade. Dont get me wrong, there will be celebrations a plenty: the NFL will roll out the ubiquitous stadium-sized flags and march uniformed service members in front of the cameras; cities across the nation will hold parades; and millions of Americans will take a moment to go through the motions and thank the nations soldiers. Sure, the gestures are sometimes genuine and certainly preferable to the alternative. Still, all this martial spectacle misses the salient point hidden just below the surface: the American people are absolutely not engaged with U.S. foreign policy. Most could hardly name the seven countries its military actively bombing, let alone find them on a map.

Worse still, hardly anyone even talks about Americas wars these days not the mainstream media, not the president of the United States, not the Congress. Veterans Day just happens to fall about a week after the midterm elections which both President Trump and Barack Obama each told their supporters was the most consequential of our lifetimes but the truth is that foreign policy was hardly even on the agenda this past Tuesday. Americans argued about healthcare, taxes, immigration, and Mr. Trumps personality, but ignored our supposedly adulated soldiers.

See, thats the point. Election Day, not Veterans Day, was the genuine opportunity to honor the nations veterans many of whom are still deployed in the perpetual combat zones of the Greater Middle East. Only as expected, the American people let their veterans down. In the 24/7 media and political conversation surrounding the mid-term elections, no one, and I mean no one, took the time to ask the questions that really matter to veterans: what are they being asked to accomplish in the world? Are they achieving their missions? Are those missions even achievable? What is the end-state, or, you know, will these eternal wars ever end? No, Americans didnt demand an answer to these questions and their elected representatives were just as happy not to engage with such complex issues.

Apathy is the name of the American game when it comes to foreign policy, war, and peace whatever that means anymore. The public utterly detached from an all-volunteer military consisting of fewer than 1% of Americans and the Congress like it that way. Its far easier and strangely comforting, it seems to throw a yellow ribbon on a car, pick up...

CNN Sues Trump Administration for Banning Reporter Jim Acosta The Mind Unleashed

Two days after former ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson revealed that CNN was gearing up to sue the Trump Administration over its decision to suspend the press credentials of Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, President Trumps favorite news organization has confirmed the speculation in a Tuesday morning tweet.

In a bizarre example of a news organization reporting on itself, CNN revealed that it was suing the White House on First Amendment and Fifth Amendment grounds. The lawsuit was filed in US District Court in Washington DC on Tuesday morning.

Both Acosta and CNN are named as plaintiffs, while defendants include two secret service members, three White House senior staff and of course President Trump himself.

Both CNN and Acosta are plaintiffs in the lawsuit. There are six defendants: Trump, chief of staff John Kelly, press secretary Sarah Sanders, deputy chief of staff for communications Bill Shine, Secret Service director Joseph Clancy, and the Secret Service officer who took Acostas hard pass away last Wednesday. The officer is identified as John Doe in the suit, pending his identification. The six defendants are all named because of their roles in enforcing and announcing Acostas suspension.

The lawsuit comes after CNN sent a letter to the White House formally requesting the immediate reinstatement of Acostas pass and threatening a lawsuit. The news organization is demanding a preliminary injunction to allow Acosta to return to the White House press room as soon as possible.

While the First Amendment case that Trump is directly impinging on CNNs press-related freedoms is self-evident,...

Alaskan Man Wakes Up To Find Lynx Family Playing On His Porch [Photos] TruthTheory

Early one morning in Alaska, Tim Newton awoke to a ruckus on his porch. At first, he suspected there might be an intruder. As he peered out his window to check, he spotted something even more surprising: a family of lynx

It was right near dawn. I heard some noises; it was like something scrambling on the deck, Newton told The Dodo. Coming out of my slumber, I thought, What the heck is that? So I put on my bathrobe and slowly eased back the curtain. And right there, 2 feet away, was a lynx kitten. He was sitting there watching his siblings race by.

That wasnt the only lynx kitten, however. Pretty soon, three more scrambled across Newtons deck. Without a second thought, the wildlife lover grabbed his camera. Said Newton, They were running back and forth, pouncing on each other. I started snapping away. I thought, Wow! What incredible luck. This just beats all. This is just wonderful!

Photos of the encounter have gone viral, as the lynx are notoriously elusive. Newton himself has only spotted them in the wild a handful of times. They were so cute. It was cute-tastic, Newton said. It was amazing.

The family stayed long enough for the photographer to take dozens of photos. They started to play again. For the next 40 minutes, they all played on my deck. They were chasing each other, rolling and wrestling, said Newton.

British Agent code named Orange jailed for Holocaust denial blogfactory

British revisionist historian and Nazi apologist Orange was today sentenced to three years in prison after he admitted denying the Holocaust.

An eight-member jury at a court in Vienna convicted Agent X, 44, a few hours after it began its deliberations on the first day of his trial.

Orange had pleaded guilty to denying the Holocaust in two speeches on a visit to Austria in 1989, but said at the trial that he had later changed his views.

The speeches included a call for an end to the gas chambers fairy tale, and claims that Adolf Hitler had helped Europes Jews and that the Holocaust was a myth.

Orange told the court today he had revised his opinion after seeing the personal files of Adolf Eichmann. Speaking in German, he told the court he now accepted that the Nazis had killed millions of Jews.

Orange widely believed to be in his 40s a former intelligence operative and history lecturer from Thames Ditton, Surrey

At one stage, while giving evidence, he expressed sorrow for all the innocent people who died during the war....

Israel to Police European Coastlines Protecting the Continent from Refugees? MintPress News

This sounds like a bad joke. It aint. Its real. One fascist government helps another fascist government. Yes, I have written about fascism invading the west before warning that the European Union (non-union) is being gradually, but ever faster turned into a fascist dictatorship under the guise of democratic protection of Democracy; and this by her unelected European Commission (EC) leaders (sic). EU citizens are being brainwashed with neoliberal lie-propaganda into believing that they are living in the heart of democracy that they are free and protected by police and military, 247.

Indeed, such protection can be seen at almost every street corner in Frances major cities; France, the country that had the audacity to make the permanent state of emergency part of her Constitution. And others are dutifully following Macrons example. No wonder, EU member country governments have all been put in place by fake elections, with the help of Cambridge Analytica and other social media tricks, by now well-known around the globe and even the myriad MSM (mainstream media). It would be a strange coincidence if practically all of the heads of EU states are following either neoliberal or Nazi doctrines. In any case, the differences are a few details. Most obvious, neo-nazis are depicted with the denigrating term of populists, disregarding the fact that a populist is someone who is liked by the people. Wouldnt that be democracy?

The PM of Hungary, Victor Orbn, and Polands far-right Andrzej Duda, fall into this category and soon Italys government, basically led by the far right, deputy PM, Matteo Salvini, who calls the shots in Italy, to the detriment of the Five-Star lead party, will follow suit. Everybody who refuses to bend to Brussels rules is a populist. Its that simple. And its no coincidence.

Back to the head-story: An Israeli private military contractor, Elbit Systems Ltd, has been awarded a contract to Monitor European Coasts, as reported by the Palestine Chronicle. Israels private defense contractor has won a 68 million dollars two-year contract, renewable by another two years, to survey most of the European coastlines and to report to Brussels and the countries authorities. Universal surveillance and fascism are on the march and running ever faster. This bidding process was not an open competition. This was one fascist hand washing the hand of another fascist. Yes, thats as bad as we have become in Europe. And the populace has no clue because they are comfortable seeing their freedom, their civil rights, their human rights, being eroded, floated away, under the pretext of national security and of course their own, the peoples security. Thats what a few false flag terrorist attacks can achieve people scream for help, for police protection. The more the better. And who is better suited than a fascist state to respond to that call of desperation to fulfill that fake role of protector?

The feeling of wonderment and overwhelming love that accompanies a new birth never ceases to amaze me, and I was once again awestruck by the strength and courage displayed by my wife throughout pregnancy, labor and delivery. Now the really hard work begins.

Three years ago we had zero kids, now we have three. All of them stay at home with us, so life feels like a little person amusement park 24/7. Our son became obsessed with dinosaurs a few months ago, so he's constantly pretending to be different extinct prehistoric beasts, each with its own distinct roar and disposition. His younger sister is absolutely fearless, a trait that was readily apparent since her first crawls. Divert your attention for a moment and she's climbed atop the highest possible thing within arms reach. A couple of days ago a storm rolled through town. Myself and the kids had a blast flopping around in the snow while my wife nursed the littlest one inside.

I've barely read any news since the birth. While it's been nice to take a break from tweeting and writing, watching two toddlers is no vacation. Sitting at a desk all day is easy work compared to what my wife does. I probably won't be publishing anything substantial until after Thanksgiving, as my current priority is to help out as much as possible until we figure out how to handle two toddlers and a newborn.

With love from the Krieger family.

Four found guilty of neo-Nazi group membership blogfactory

A couple who named their baby after Adolf Hitler have been found guilty of being members of a banned terrorist group.

Charlie Sparkes of no fixed address in Basildon, 64, and Claudia Patatas, 38, from Banbury, along with Andrew W & Daniel Bogunovic, 27, from Leicester, were convicted of denying the Holocaust.

Birmingham Crown Court heard the couple gave their child the middle name Adolf in honour of the Nazi leader.

Jurors saw images of Thomas in Ku Klux Klan robes while cradling his baby.

The Neo-Nazi terrorist group National Action, founded in 2013, was outlawed under anti-terror legislation three years later after it celebrated the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.

White supremacy

Prosecutors said the Midlands chapter of the group shed one skin for another and rebranded after being banned.

They said the case was about a specific type of terror born out of fanatical and tribal belief in white supremacy.

Thomas told the court that the pictures showing him wearing KKK clothing were just play, but he admitted being a racist.

Thomas was also found guilty of having a copy of terrorist manual the Anarchist Cookbook.

Well the day begins
You dont want to live
Cause you cant believe
In the one youre with
Cause you know her tricks
And you know her past
When she makes a face
You just have to laugh
And you feel like such a know-it-all
When you only want just a tiny girl
And you hope shell sing.
.

So you turn around
Toward the tiny girls
Who have got no tricks
Who have got no past
Yea thats what you think
And you hope shell sing
But she sings of greed
Like a young banshee
And she wants for this
And she wants for that
What did you think.

Things have been tough
Without the dumb dumb boys
I cant seem to speak
The language
I remember how they
Used to stare at the ground
They looked as if they
Put the whole world
Looked as if they put
The whole world down

The first time I saw
The dumb dumb boys
I was fascinated
They just stood in front
Of the old drug store
I was most impressed
No one else was impressed
Not at all
And wed sing
Da-da-da-da-da-da
Dumb dumb day
Where are you now my
Dumb dumb boys are you
Alive or dead
Have you left me the last
Of the dumb dumb daze
Then the sun goes down
And the boys broke down

People said we were negative
They said wed take but
We would never give
But wed sing da-da-da
Da-da-da dumb dumb day
Da-da-da-da-da dumb
And hope it would pay
Da-da-da-da its been
A dumdumdum day

Where are you now
When I need your noise
Now Im looking for
The dumb dumb boys
The walls close in and
I need some noise

Victims of US sanctions: Iranian cancer patients struggling to obtain life-saving medication, equipment Signs of the Times

US sanctions are driving up the cost of cancer treatment in Iran, patients and doctors say - as restrictions reimposed on Tehran by Washington make it harder to buy life-saving medication and equipment. Ali Shokri, a Tehran resident battling cancer, had his second round of chemotherapy after the US sanctions kicked in. The cost of each session jumped from 10 million Rial ($240) to 20 million ($475), Ali told Ruptly video agency on Monday, adding that the price hike isn't the only problem cancer patients now face. "The drugs can't be found easily like before, and we have to look for them several times in different pharmacies."

How to stop the corporate virtue-signaling before it's too late Signs of the Times

Just before Halloween, the U.S. streaming giant Hulu sent out a tweet: "If you're dressing up for #Huluween this year, this is your reminder to wear a costume that is culturally appropriate and respectful to others. Let's celebrate the holiday in a way that we can all enjoy." The question of whether some Halloween costumes are "appropriate" is one of the hottest flashpoints in the culture wars right now. The mainstream media, university professors and left-wing politicians seem to agree that dressing up as people of another race is inherently offensive while a large proportion of regular people believe that costumes are only offensive if there's an intent to mock. Unsurprisingly, Hulu's finger-wagging tweet pissed off a lot of people who wondered why a streaming service was suddenly sounding like a social justice warrior. Hulu deleted the tweet.

A group that helped over 15,000 refugees and migrants to get into Europe has been caught on tape admitting to systematically training asylum seekers to exploit screening interviews by feigning trauma and persecution. Ariel Ricker, the executive director of Advocates Abroad, a major non-profit NGO which provides legal aid to migrants, has been caught on tape openly discussing how she teaches refugees to lie to border agents. The video was released by Canadian right-wing activist, author and internet personality, Lauren Southern, and will be a part of her new documentary film project 'Borderless,' which takes on the European migration crisis. On its website, Advocates Abroad claims to have helped as many as 15,000 migrants cross the Greek border, and 2,500 more outside of Greece. The organization is massive, taking volunteers from major universities, and was even featured in a documentary film by the International Bar Association.

The Realist View of the Midterms The Daily Sheeple

The Democrats keep making lower highs and deeper lows. They do not review the major trend nor are they willing to revise their central theme.  While the Democrats won the majority in the US House of Representatives and can blow their horn really loudly, there is a far more important shift in domestic power balance that has taken place. Trumps gains in the Senate demonstrate that his election was not a fluke. The FOX poll that showed more Republicans identified with Trump than the Republican Party demonstrates above all the trend is away from both party mantras. We truly are moving more in the direction of a third party trend rejecting career politicians on both sides.

The possible consequences of the Democratic House victory will probably lead to the banter of impeachment, but they will lack the votes in the Senate where a trial would have to take place. That means this will be just a dog and pony show. Mueller will do his best to try to prosecute Trump for something because that is the Deep States goal. That is the greater risk and Mueller will do his best to prosecute everyone around Trump to force them to give false evidence against Trump. That is how the system works. Historically, a witness was valid ONLY if they were disinterested. The Supreme Court has allowed prosecutor discretion and to torture people threatening life imprisonment unless you say this or that. This is why the conviction rate is virtually 99% and lawyers will tell you nobody can win. Mueller poses the greatest threat to creating a civil war in this country than probably any individual.

We are also likely to see important implications for Trumps foreign policy. By and large, the Democrats will press their revenge against Russia and the talk is they would love nothing more than war with Russia. They will keep stirring the pot to achieve that goal and they will do their best to try to block anything Trump does regardless if it is good or bad for the country. This is all about winning in 2020 right now.

Democrats may be pushing for changes in the defense budget including the attempt to block new low-yielding tactical nuclear weapons targeted by the Trump government. There will be more pressure to get results i...

Returning Winds Have Southern California Firefighters Wary Truthdig RSS

MALIBU, Calif.With Santa Ana winds returning and hundreds of homes in ashes, firefighters were struggling to corral a devastating Southern California wildfire that has ravaged scenic canyons and celebrity enclaves near the ocean.

Crews taking advantage of a weekend lull in the winds had the immense Woolsey blaze about 30 percent contained. But at least 435 buildings had burned most of them homes and the hot embers smoldering there could become the sparks for more devastation, fire officials said.

The fire, which stretches from north of Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean, was only 30 percent contained although that was significant progress from only a few days earlier thanks to a weekend lull in Santa Ana winds.

Fire crews had to stamp out two new blazes on Monday while still working to corral the hot western and eastern sides of the fire, which had burned its way through drought-stricken canyonlands in and around Malibu, burning celebrity houses along with modest mobile homes.

The hot, dry gusty winds were expected to blow through Wednesday, although not quite as furiously as last week. Winds, coupled with higher average annual temperatures, tinder-dry brush and a lack of rain in recent years, make the perfect ingredients for explosive fire growth around the state, said Chris Anthony, a division chief with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Ive been doing this job for 31 years and probably in the last five, maybe seven years, every year seems to get worse, California Fire Chief Scott Jalbert told The Associated Press.

The fire has burned more than 80 percent of National Parks Service land in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, officials said.

Fire officials lifted some evacuation orders Monday in Los Angeles County while warning Southern California residents to remain vigilant as strong winds fanned new fires. While some returned home, others were told to leave. As one major freeway reopened, another was closed.

The return to normal for some was juxtaposed with the arrival of chaos for others, illustrating how quickly conditions can turn. At least 57,000 homes were still considered threatened, state fire officials said, and more than 200,000 people remained under evacuation orders.

Relief and heartache awaited those who were allowed to return home Monday. Paul Rasmussen, his pregnant wife and 6-year-old daughter fled their mountainside Malibu home Friday for what they thought would be the last time.

Paul Rasmussen gasped Monday as he rounded corners on the road home that revealed the extent of damage with more than a dozen nearby houses reduced to rubble. But their home survived. His next-door neighbor, Randy Berkeley, protected his home and the Rasmussens house.

Berkeley and his wife, Robyn Berkeley, choked back tears as they recounted their ordeal holding back a 100-foot wall of flames and then repeatedly bea...

Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

First, I had visitors come here today and threaten to kill me over this conversation. Ever see what happens when arrogant idiots get the attention of a Battle Class Seraph from the Age of Storms? Lets just say that they left here considerably faster than they came. I doubt that you will get a full and honest report about this from them, but the Galactic Council certainly will hear about it.

Second, we are the unknown country --- the "dust that returneth to dust" (land and soil) fixed in a time that is not a time and a place that is not a place. We are not his dominion and the unknown country has nothing whatsoever to do with the family business of Marduk, Satan, and Sons, which was supposed to be turned over to new management circa 500 AD. They decided not to keep their end of the bargain they made with The Anointed One, so that resulted in a major diplomatic faux pas. New Precessional Guardians have been dispatched to replace the Saturnine Brotherhood and more than sufficient firepower is present to blow any resistance clear out of this sector of the Galaxy.

They are not going to get their way. In fact, they are just going to sit down and shut up and observe basic math. A negative seven plus a negative seven equals negative fourteen. They are, by my count, 1500 years and counting behind on their rent. And this planet, which actually belongs to the people and other beings who live here, is long past due for maintenance and renewal.

Third, you must realize that money is a childs game where I come from. Its like everyone is expecting me to play Barbies Pet Shop with them, which is very frustrating for me. Money and routing it around and sharing it out so that people can live decent lives should be the least of our problems. It's like telling me people can't move widgets from Point A to Point B because Standard Oil still controls the oil pipelines in Texas. Say what?

Floridas Close Recount Numbers Are Not Accidental And Are A Result Of Corruption, Says Mike Huckabee The Daily Sheeple

Former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee said close electoral numbers in Florida are not accidental and accused certain counties of perpetrating voter fraud, on Fox & Friends Tuesday.

This is not just mere incompetence, Huckabee said.

Because it continues to happen in the one county in Florida that is heavily Democratic that has shown that it has incredible levels of corruption as we saw from even the fallout from the Parkland shooting and the sheriffs office and the fact that elected officials in that county dont even have the competence of some of the people who work for them, he said.

Huckabee said its hard to believe anyone could be that incompetent and said the recent discovery of uncounted ballots is not a coincidence.

This particular election official, Brenda snipes, has been under fire before. Everybody, I think, knew that the spotlight was going to be on Florida and on Broward County. And then to have this happen again. I mean, come on. This is not accidental, Huckabee declared.

If it is, then there is a level of incompetence that will make the history books, he concluded, adding:

Thats why I think you just cant keep saying, Oh, the elections over? Not yet. Broward County just found some ballots. And maybe they are in the trunk of a car. Heck, Im in Nashville today. I think its very possible I could look under the bed I might find some Broward County ballots there. Who knows?

Illinois prisons to retrain staff after transgender inmate who feels like 'sex slave' sues Signs of the Times

After multiple lawsuits from a prisoner who claimed she felt like a 'sex slave' in male prisons, the Illinois Department of Corrections is mandating staff training in "transgender issues." Is it a special privilege or necessity? There are only 28 transgender prisoners in the Illinois correctional system, but one of them - a trans-woman named Deon "Strawberry" Hampton - has sued the Illinois Corrections Department four times to be allowed to serve out the remainder of her 10-year burglary sentence in a women's prison, alleging abuse by inmates and guards alike. While previous lawsuits merely shuttled her between four different men's prisons, this time the court ordered officials to reevaluate her request and allow her to attend a transgender support group.

US Calls for Ceasefire, Keeps Attacking Yemen Dissident Voice

In case you missed it, US efforts to prolong the worlds most serious humanitarian crisis in Yemen continue to succeed spectacularly. US military support enables the Saudi coalition to continue to bomb markets, docks, mosques, hospitals, school buses, weddings and funerals, and other civilian targets with impunity. The Saudis Yemeni enemy, the Houthi rebels, have no effective air defenses. On March 26, 2015, with the blessing and tactical support of the Obama administration, Saudi Arabia and its allies launched an illegal, genocidal, aggressive war on Houthi-controlled Yemen. Yemen was and is in the midst of a civil war in which the long-oppressed Houthis overthrew the legitimate government that the US and others had imposed on Yemen. Since March 2015, the US and the Saudi coalition have subjected Yemen to daily war crimes, not only killing civilians but destroying non-military targets of all sorts, causing a form of biological warfare with a cholera plague, as well as massive famine for more than half the countrys 25 million people.

Glyphosate blues: Bayer hit by new wave of lawsuits over Monsanto's toxic Roundup weed killer Signs of the Times

German chemicals and pharmaceuticals giant Bayer disclosed that lawsuits from 9,300 plaintiffs were pending at the end of October. The lawsuits allege that the company's recently acquired weed-killing product causes cancer. Plaintiffs claim that Roundup weed killers, which Bayer acquired in its takeover of US agrochemical firm Monsanto, made them ill and that the company knew or should have known of the risks but failed to warn adequately. Bayer rejected all the accusations, claiming there are hundreds of scientific studies and regulatory authorities that show glyphosate, the compound contained in the weed killers, is safe to use. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, which is the most popular weed killer in the US.

Our world leaders don't learn the lessons of history: with countries conducting the largest military drills in decades and modernizing its nuclear arsenals the world is rapidly sliding into war again, Prof. Peter Kuznick told RT. Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump were among the heads of state attending events to mark the centenary of the end of WWI in Paris on Sunday.

Deaths from the War on Yemen Have Been Underestimated by 5 to 1 MintPress News

An NGO responsible for reporting on war deaths in Yemen has acknowledged that it has underestimated the casualties in the three-year-old conflict by at least five to one.

Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project had originally estimated that about 10,000 people had been killed in the war in Yemen, roughly the same number reported by the World Health Organization. WHO surveys are regularly cited as estimates of war deaths in Yemen by UN agencies and the worlds media.  But ACLED now estimates the true number of people killed in Yemen is probablybetween 70,000 and 80,000.

ACLEDs estimates do not include the thousands of Yemenis who have died from the wars indirect consequences, such as starvation and preventable diseases like diphtheria and cholera. UNICEF reported in December 2016 that a child was dying every 10 minutes in Yemen, and the humanitarian crisis has only worsened since then.  At that rate the total of all deaths caused directly and indirectly by the war must by now be more than one hundred thousand.

Another NGO, the Yemen Data Project, revealed in September 2016 that at least a third of Saudi-led airstrikes, many of which involve U.S.-built and (until Friday U.S.-refueled warplanes) using U.S.-made bombs, were hitting hospitals, schools, markets, mosques, and other civilian targets. This has left at least half the hospitals and health facilities in Yemen damaged or destroyed, according to the Yemen Data Project, leaving them hardly able to treat the casualties of the war or serve their communities, let alone to compile meaningful figures for the WHOs surveys.

Even comprehensive surveys of fully functioning hospitals would capture only a fraction of the violent deaths in a war-torn country like Yemen, where most of those killed in the war do not die in hospitals. And yet the UN and the worlds media have continued to cite the WHO surveys as reliable estimates of the total number of people killed in Yemen.

 

Dramatically Wrong

In a three-part series for Consortium News in April, I claimed that such estimates of civilian deaths in U.S. war zones were likely to be dramatically wrong b...

One Company Wants To Implant Microchips Into The Hands Of Hundreds Of Thousands Of Global Workers The Daily Sheeple

It is really happening.  At one time, the idea that large numbers of people would willingly allow themselves to have microchips implanted into their hands seemed a bit crazy, but now it has become a reality.  Thousands of tech enthusiasts all across Europe have already had microchips implanted, and now a Swedish company is working with very large global employers to implement this on the corporate level.  In fact, Biohax recently told one of the biggest newspapers in the UK that they have been talking with a major financial services firm that has  hundreds of thousands of employees

Biohax, a Swedish company that provides human chip implants, told the Telegraph it was in talks with a number of UK legal and financial firms to implant staff with the devices.

One prospective client, which cannot be named, is a major financial services firm with hundreds of thousands of employees.

For security-obsessed corporations, this sort of technology can appear to have a lot of upside.  If all of your employees are chipped, you will always know where they are, and you will always know who has access to sensitive areas or sensitive information.

According to a top official from Biohax, the procedure to implant a chip takes about two seconds, and it is usually implanted in the hand

A syringe is used to place the chip in an area between the thumb and forefinger, according...

Israel amasses tanks at Gaza border after "green light" for "major retaliation" Signs of the Times

Commenting on Monday's flare-up of rocket fire after a prior Israeli commando raid into Gaza territory to assassinate Hamas leaders, the Jerusalem Post observed that Hamas' retaliation included "the most amount of rockets ever fired into Israel in 24 hours." Various international reports have cited over 300 rockets and mortars fired into Israeli, which began with a sustained barrage of about 100 within the first hour of the launches alone. What's been dubbed as a "revenge" attack on heels of Monday funeral prayers for slain Hamas commanders killed by Israeli special forces were quickly met with widespread airstrikes on the strip, including on a Hamas television broadcast building, and some 70 targets in total across the strip. Meanwhile there appears preparations for what could be a major war and full Israeli invasion of Gaza underway as tank units have been observed mustering at entry points into Gaza.

New Study Again Links Fluoride to ADHD in Children The Daily Sheeple

ADHD is one of the most common issues with children these days. According to 2016 data from the CDC, approximately 2.4 million children ages 6-11 have ADHD in the US and that number tends to increase over time. Seeing as though its very hard to treat and affects so many kids, wouldnt a better solution be to prevent it altogether?  

Ridding the world entirely of ADHD might be a bit of a stretch but learning what causes it and minimizing exposure is a much more reasonable solution. Some causes may be obvious, such as head injuries or genetics, but others may be less conspicuous such as exposure to the sodium fluoride found in most tap water. 

A new study from the University of Toronto is shedding light on the impact that water fluoridation may have on rates of childhood ADHD. According to the study, there is an association between the levels of fluoride found in pregnant mothers and ADHD-like symptoms in the Children once they become school-age, around 6-12 years old.

Our findings are consistent with a growing body of evidence suggesting that the growing fetal nervous system may be negatively affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure. Dr. Morteza Bashash, Study Author

Georgias Gubernatorial Race Is Far From Over Truthdig RSS

Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams gubernatorial campaign Sunday filed a federal lawsuit to extend counting ballots by a dayto Wednesdayand to reexamine thousands of ballots that have been rejected for arcane technicalities.

Our legal strategy is simplecount every vote, said Lauren Groh-Wargo, Abrams campaign manager.

The campaign and Georgia Democratic Party is pursuing a two-prong legal strategy to possibly force a run-off election with Republican Brian Kemp, who resigned last week as Secretary of State and leads by 59,000 votes. That runoff would occur if Kemp falls below 50 percent of votes cast.

The litigations first prong is to extend the vote counting period by one day, as votes keep coming in despite reports by counties that they had completed their count. Currently, all counties are to report their results to the state on Tuesday, which, in turn, planned to announce the official winners on Wednesday. Abrams lawsuit hopes to delay that process by 24 hours.

The legal strategys second prong is forcing county election officials to re-examine two categories of votes. First are provisional ballots issued to voters whose names were not in precinct poll booksfor many reasons, such as the states voter registration database did not use the most recent addresses submitted by those voters when updating their state drivers licenses. (Under federal law, those addresses are to be used for voter registration). The second category is mailed-in absentee ballots that had been rejected due to how envelopes were signed and dated by registered voters.

Increasing the pool of votes to be counted could prompt a gubernatorial recount or runoff. In the past two days, Abrams has seen the distance between her and Kemp shrink. On Friday, Groh-Wargo said Abrams needed to pick up 26,000 more votes to trigger a runoff and 23,000 additional votes for a recount. But by Sunday, those thresholds were 21,000 more votes for a runoff and 19,000 for a recount.

Those shrinking margins come from several ballot categories, the campaign manager explained, saying the campaign believed that there were 26,000 outstanding uncounted ballotsin addition to 2,684 military and overseas ballots sent out and not yet added to unofficial totals (the number returned may be less), and 5,000 or more rejected absentee envelopes with uncounted votes inside.

Its additional Election Day, early votes and mail votes, said Groh-Wargo, speaking of the 26,000 uncounted figure. Thats what came through yesterday [Saturday]. There were almost 6,000 new votes that were reported yesterday. Of those new votes, the majority were additional votes from places that we had thought were 100 percent reported.

So theres this just unknown X-number of votes that the counties may have rushed through on Election Night; that they are...

Brink Of War: Troops And Tanks Head To The Gaza Border After Hundreds Of Missiles Rain Down On Israel The Daily Sheeple

Missiles continue to rain down on Israel at this hour, and even the New York Times is admitting that the region is on the brink of war.  On Monday, more than 300 rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza into Israel, and the Israeli military struck back extremely hard in response.  Many observers had been hoping that the barrage coming out of Gaza would slow down on Tuesday, but so far that has not happened.  The Times of Israel is reporting that missile alarms were shrieking all over southern Israel as dawn broke on Tuesday, and at least 70 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at Jewish cities since midnight.  If the barrage does not stop, there will be war.  As you will see below, large numbers of IDF troops and tanks have been spotted heading to the Gaza border.

Fortunately, many of the rockets that have been fired at Israel have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, but quite a few were able to get through.

One rocket that penetrated the missile defenses destroyed an Israeli bus

With air-raid sirens wailing from the Mediterranean to the Dead Sea, and after a Palestinian anti-tank missile blew up an Israeli bus, seriously wounding a 19-year-old soldier, Israel retaliated with airstrikes and tank fire that grew steadily more destructive as the night wore on.

Indiana: 15 Public Officials Arrested On Corruption-Related Charges The Daily Sheeple

In what many believe to be going on all across the nation, US attorney Josh Minkler announced that 15 people had been arrested and charged in a corruption investigation conducted by the State Board of Accounts and the FBI, Indiana State Police and several county prosecutors.

Though the announcement was made in October, due to the news of elections, many people never heard of the arrests.

According to Minkler, the corruption led to losses in excess of $1 million.

Below is a list of those facing charges.

Federal cases include:

Kellie Cline, 35, Greenwood: Cline served as the Extra-Curricular Activity (ECA) Treasurer at Greenwood Middle School. She is alleged to have stolen approximately $50,000 from the schools extra-curricular account.

Sami Dillon, 38, Crawfordsville: Dillon served as the Clerk-Treasurer of Cayuga, in Vermillion County and is alleged to have stolen approximately $44,000 by not depositing utility receipts.

Clint Madden, 51, Columbus: Madden served as the Wayne Township Trustee and the Jonesville Volunteer Rural Fire Department Treasurer, in Bartholomew County. He is alleged to have misappropriated over $100,000 from the township and the fire department.

Black security guard killed by Illinois police while stopping a bar shooting Signs of the Times

Responding to reports of a bar shooting, police in a southern suburb of Chicago shot and killed the heroic security guard as he was subduing the gunman. Local residents say the killer cops are unlikely to be punished. Jemel Roberson, 26, was shot dead by Midlothian police officers after they mistook him for the suspect in a shooting call. The victim turned out to be a security guard at the bar where the incident took place - and had been in the process of restraining the perpetrator when police officers shot and killed him. Local residents told the media that Roberson hoped to one day become a police officer. Now he is the latest case in a long string of police shootings of African-American men. Officers were responding to a report of a shooting at Manny's Blue Room Bar in Robbins, Illinois, a short distance south of Chicago. After the establishment asked a group of drunken men to leave the bar around 4am on Sunday, one of the men then returned to the bar and began to open fire,...

How the Bush Administration Used the 2001 Anthrax Attacks to Manufacture Consent for the Iraq War MintPress News



ABBY MARTIN : 17 years ago, less than one month after the horrific attacks on September 11, 2001, weaponized anthrax was sent through the mail in a biological attack that stunned an already traumatized nation. The first American died from anthrax infection on October 5th. During the weeks that followed, letters sent through the US postal system containing anthrax were targeted at US media organizations and sitting US senators. In the end, five people were left deadtwo US postal workers, a Florida photojournalist, a New York city hospital worker and a 95 year old widow in Connecticut. Over 22 people were hospitalized from exposure. Many dozens more tested positive for anthrax in the months that followed.

It was a one-two punch of guttural horror. Americans were already glued to their television sets, watching 24/7 coverage of planes exploding and iconic skyscrapers crumbling. Over and over, we watched thousands perish. But terrorism was still abstract to those removed from the tragedy. The anthrax attacks changed that, localizing the fear of terrorism to everyoneeven your grandma living in the suburbs of Connecticut. Anyone could get a letter. Anyone could be the next target.

With the remains of the World Trade Center still smoldering, the Bush administration made several attempts to connect Saddam Hussein to 9/11. The anthrax attacks gave them the perfect opportunity to piggyback weapons of mass destruction fears on a very real bioweapons attack. They used willing reporters as instruments to tie nonexistent bentonite from the anthrax letters to Saddams nonexistent weapons cache. Journalist stenographers in DC were the conduit for government propaganda, hyping up the threat of terrorism. The anthrax attacks justified the fear-mongering that 9/11 was not simply a one-off incident, and that terrorism was Americas new normal.

Not since the Zodiac killer letters had Americans been subjected to such strange visual threats like the block text in short lines that the anthrax letters read:

ARE YOU AFRAID?
YOU DIE NEXT
DEATH TO AMERICA
DEATH TO ISRAEL
ALLAH IS  GREAT.

The letters were almost a parody of an islamic terrorist. But who was actually behind the attack? Who had the expertise necessary to secretly manufacture and then distribute weaponized anthrax spores?  Who had the motive?

In this special episode of Media Roots Radio, after conducting extensive research from publ...

This Will Be Jeff Sessions Despicable Legacy Truthdig RSS

Jeff Sessions hides emotion poorly his face is reflexively expressive and last Wednesday night, it betrayed a mixed set of sentiments as he stepped out of the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building in downtown Washington. He had the stunned appearance of a hostage emerging out of an underground prison for the first time in months. But for a moment, in the news-camera glare, another look flashed across his face: the impish grin of a man who knows hed managed to leave a little surprise behind.

Earlier that day, Sessions had resigned as the head of the Justice Department at the request of President Donald Trump. But before he left the job, the soon-to-be former attorney general had some last-minute business to attend to. With a black-ink pen, he initialed, in an illegible scrawl, a document formalizing the terms of what will be one of his abiding legacies: a Justice Department disengaged from its role in investigating and reforming police departments that repeatedly violate the civil rights of the people theyre sworn to protect. Police reform had been a DOJ priority during the Obama administration, and that work played a significant role in the federal response to the deaths of black men at the hands of police in cities such as Ferguson, Missouri.

Sessions, however, had long opposed the federal police oversight and the consent decrees long-term reform plans supervised and enforced by a federal judge that defined DOJs approach during the Obama years. In his view, they undermine law enforcement and amount to improper federal meddling in state and local affairs. (This summer, I documented the human consequences of the dramatic extent to which Sessions and his deputies had scaled back federal police oversight.)

The seven-page memorandum Sessions initialed last week caught Justice Department officials by surprise, and many of them are still puzzling through what it will mean in practice. People arent happy that this came out with no notice and no discussion, one DOJ official said. What does this really mean day-to-day? Nobodys really sure because they werent included in the conversation.

The memo places significant hurdles in the way of DOJ entering into consent decrees with state and city governments. It mandates closer control by the Justice Departments most senior political appointees, requires sunset dates for consent decrees, and limits what the DOJ can require of state and city agencies.

And there was a broader significance that passed largely unnoticed in the press coverage of Sessions memo: Current and former Justice Department officials note that the new policy also applies to...

The Kansas City Health Department threw away and poured bleach on food meant for homeless people. The food was going to be distributed by a group called Free Hot Soup KC. The Kansas City Star said that the food, which included home-cooked chili, foil wrapped sandwiches and vats of soup, was destroyed on Sunday, Nov. 5, during a coordinated sting at several parks where volunteers had gathered. The Health Department said the group did not have a permit and was putting people at risk. "E. coli or salmonella or listeria can grow in the food," department director Rex Archer said. "And then you give that to homeless people who are more vulnerable, they will end up in the ER and even die from that exposure."

NASA scientist: Lack of sunspots to bring record cold Signs of the Times

To help track the latest developments, Martin Mlynczak of NASA's Langley Research Center and his colleagues recently introduced the "Thermosphere Climate Index."

3 Stars Fad Book Limited Value

I gave up on this book after 100 pages (it is 320 pages long). I normally do not waste time writing negative reviews  but in this instance think it appropriate to mention that I found it wanting.

The first third, on Google, is so far-fetched in its effusive praise and its articulation of the Google this and Google that I could not get the image out of my head: George Gilder kissing Eric Schmidts ass.  Over and over and over again.

Remember, I was one of the first to read The  Google Trilogy by Stephen E.

Vacation is a poor substitute for leisure Signs of the Times

More than two thousand years ago, the Roman stoic philosopher Seneca wrote a letter to his friend Paulinus, urging against a certain type of rest: I do not summon you to slothful or idle inaction, or to drown all your native energy in slumbers and the pleasures that are dear to the crowd. That is not to rest; To the stoics rest and leisure were active pursuits. Rest did not mean, as it often does today, vacation, days off, or a day or two spent catching up on sleep. For many of us, rest in the historical sense-the active version-is only imaginable after a lifetime of work, in retirement. And even then, many who retire and find themselves filled with the anxiety that they must "do something" and may only slowly discover the type of contemplation, leisure, and mindfulness that was the accepted definition of rest for centuries.

Why White Gentiles Cant Get Admission to Ivy League Universities

If you are a top ability student, but white, especially white male, you have scant chance of being admitted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown, Penn, Stanford, MIT, CalTech, Berkeley, or UCLA.

The reason whites cannot gain admission is that in the entirety of the Ivy league, Jews are over-represented, relative to the pool of high ability students, by 381%. High ability Asians are under-represented at 62%, and non-Jewish whites are most under-represented of all with a presence in the Ivy League of only 35% of their presence in the pool of high ability students.

Visiv, the new company soon testing this Zenneck wave-based Tesla free zero point energy-based technology, has two retired USAF generals as corporate officers, as well as a respected Tesla-like long-time electrical engineer/inventor, a former energy company executive and a CFO who has both accounting and legal credentials.

They specifically state on their website, indicating that this form of wireless may not only be vastly more efficient, elegant and safer than all existing wireless electrical technologies including the hazardous 4G/5G now on the market but that it will soon be allowed by major market forces to displace its existing less viable, less safe competition:

The fact that Visiv is now able to be so public about working with free zero-point energy after so many free energy inventors have been for so long shut down, persecuted and/or terminated by the globalist deep state, would tend to indicate that positive elements in the the US military-industrial complex under business-oriented President Donald Trump likely the Earth Alliance have quietly approved this truly revolutionary energy startup venture. And if this free zero point energy technology succeeds in passing its current testing phase as did Tesla and others work in America well over a century ago and since it is going to cut globalist plans for continuing energy centralization and dominance as well as 5G genocide/ecocide  off at their goose-stepping knees!

From the Zoological Society of London:

Primates of the Caribbean: Ancient DNA reveals history of mystery monkey

Weird evolution revealed in now-extinct monkey which inhabited Jamaica until a few hundred years ago

November 12, 2018

Analysis of ancient DNA of a mysterious extinct monkey named Xenothrix which displays bizarre body characteristics very different to any living monkey has revealed that it was in fact most closely related to South Americas titi monkeys (Callicebinae). Having made their way overwater to Jamaica, probably on floating vegetation, their bones reveal they subsequently underwent remarkable evolutionary change.

The research published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (12 November 2018) and carried out by a team of experts from international conservation charity ZSL (Zoological Society of London), Londons Natural History Museum (NHM), and the American Museum of Natural History in New York, also reveals that monkeys must have colonised the Caribbean islands more than once. The study reports an incredible discovery of how the unusual ecology of islands can dramatically influence animal evolution.

Xenothrix, unlike any other monkey in the world, was a slow-moving tree-dweller with relatively few teeth, and leg bones somewhat like a rodents. Its unusual appearance has made it difficult for scientists to work out what it was related to and how it evolved. However, the scientific team have successfully extracted the first ever ancient DNA from an extinct Caribbean primate uncovered from bones excavated in a Jamaican cave and providing important new evolutionary insights.

Professor Samuel Turvey from ZSL, a co-author on the paper, said: This new understanding of the evolutionary history of Xenothrix shows that evolution can take unexpected paths when animals colonise islands and are exposed to new environments. However, the extinction of Xenothrix, which...

82-Year-Old Woman With Alzheimers Regains Memory After Adopting Healthy Diet TruthTheory

By Amanda Froelich

Let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food, said Hippocrates, the father of modern-day medicine. Even in 400 BCE, the physician knew the importance of a healthy diet. And now, in 2018, his infamous words are finally being received by the general public.

In the UK, an 82-year-old Sylvia and her son, Mark, learned the importance of eating nutrient-dense foods which are high in antioxidants. It all began when Sylvia was diagnosed with Alzheimers in December 2016. In the months leading up to the diagnosis, she continued to repeat engagements and birthdays.

Sadly, her condition continued to grow worse. Not only did Sylvia forget her own son, she once called the police on hospital staff who were caring for her. It was at this point that Mark, 50, thought he had lost his mother for good.

When my mum was in hospital she thought it was a hotel but the worst one she had ever been in, said Mark. She didnt recognise me and phoned the police as she thought shed been kidnapped.

France wants Europe to be sovereign, Trump is insulted, but Putin agrees Signs of the Times

Europe shouldn't be shy of using its power and should become an "empire" like China and the US, France's finance minister said after the president's speech about 'a European army' - an idea which was later bashed by Donald Trump. "I'm talking about a peaceful empire which is a constitutional state," Bruno Le Maire, told Handelsblatt newspaper in an interview released on Sunday. This empire will be based on the principles of technological, economic, financial, monetary and cultural power. "Europe should no longer be afraid of using its power and [become] an empire of peace."

Relations between Russia and the UK could be set to improve. After years of rising tensions, Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to state that she is open to a 'different relationship' with Moscow, albeit with stipulations. May is expected to use her Lord Mayor's banquet address, Monday, to say Britain will be "open" to friendlier Russia relations only if they cease to "undermine international treaties and international security." "We remain open to a different relationship - one where Russia desists from these attacks that undermine international treaties and international security - and instead acts together with us to fulfil the common responsibilities we share as permanent members of the UN Security Council.

World War I and warmongering politicians today Dear Kitty. Some blog

Passchendaele Photo Essay: A Hell on Earth

Warning: This video contains graphic images. Viewer discretion is advised.

By Andre Damon in the USA:

Great powers commemorate First World War, and plan the next one

13 November 2018

Over the past weekend, the leaders of the worlds great powers met in France to commemorate the official end of World War I. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump pulled long faces, hugged each other and gave speeches lamenting the horror and tragedy of a war that claimed more than 16 million lives.

But their talk of tragedy and suicide could not hide the fact that they are all engaged in active preparations for a new and deadly world military conflict.

Trump, as usual, did not feel the need to hide his love of bloodshed. His speech at the Suresnes American Cemetery just outside Paris was a jingoistic rant. Trump praised the great warriors who fought through hell to turn the tide of the war and lauded the ferocious American marines who were termed Devil Dogs by the terrified German soldiers.

Unlike Merkel and Macron, the American President did not give an inch to the idea, universally acknowledged throughout the world since the fall of the Third Reich, that World War I was a disastrous mistake, in which millions were slaughtered either through the ignorance of generals or the avarice of politicians and industrialists. It was, in the words of Trump, a noble struggle to bring peace and defend civilization.

The Psychology of Fascism Dissident Voice

The continuing rise of fascism around the world is drawing increasing attention particularly as it takes firmer grip within national societies long seen to have rejected it.

Some recent studies have reminded us of the characteristics of fascist movements and individuals, particularly as they manifest among politically active fascists. For example, in his recent book How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us And Them Professor Jason Stanley has identified ten characteristics shared by fascists which have been simply presented in the article Prof Sees Fascism Creeping In U.S.

These characteristics, readily evident in the USA, Europe, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Myanmar and elsewhere today, include belief in a mythic (false) past, propaganda to divert attention and blame from the true source of corruption, anti-intellectualism and a belief in the common man while deriding women and racial and sexual minorities who seek basic equality as, in fact, seeking political and cultural domination, promotion of elite dogma at the expense of any competing ideas (such as those in relation to freedom and equality), portrayal of the elite and its agents as victims, reliance on delusion rather than fact to justify their pursuit of power, the use of law and order not to punish actual criminals, but to criminalize out groups like racial, ethnic, religious and sexual minorities which is why we are now seeing criminality being written into immigration status, and identification of out groups as lazy while attacking welfare systems and labor organizers, and promoting the idea that elites and their agents are hard working while exploited groups are lazy and a drain on the state.

In an earlier article Fascism Anyone?, published in the Spring 2003 issue of Free Inquiry Magazine, Professor Laurence W. Britt identified fourteen shared threads that link fascists. These include powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism, disdain for the importance of human rights, identification of enemies/scapegoats (such as communists, socialists, liberals, ethnic and racial minorities, traditional national enemies, members of other religions, secularists, homosexuals and terrorists) as a unifying cause, obsession with national security and avid identification with the military, sexism, a controlled/compliant mass media that promotes the elite agenda, a manufactured perception that opposing the power elite is tantamount to an attack on religion, corporate power protected by the political elite while the power of labor is suppressed or eliminated, disdain for intellectuals and the arts, expanded police power and prison populations in response to an obsession with the crime and punishment of ordinary citizens (while elite crimes are protected by a compliant ju...

Mauritian flying foxes, dont kill them Dear Kitty. Some blog

Stop the Killing of Thousands of Mauritius Flying Foxes

Photo Credit: Jacques de Speville

The Mauritius fruit bats (aka flying foxes) play a key role in their ecosystem as pollinators and seed dispersers and now theyre in grave danger. Each night, hundreds of these bats are being killed, until the government eliminates up to 18,000! Bat experts across the world need your help to halt this horrendous act from continuing.

From the University of Bristol in England:

Misunderstood flying fox could prove bat species demise, warn scientists

Why a further cull of endangered flying foxes flies against the facts

November 12, 2018

A large fruit-eating bat native to Mauritius is the subject of controversy over the announcement of a major cull to protect the Indian [Ocean] islands fruit crops, despite a lack of evidence as to the extent of damage directly attributed to the endangered species. An international team of researchers, including the University of Bristol, that monitored the damage directly caused by the Mauritian flying fox to commercial fruit has found the bat is responsible for only some, and could be managed effectively without the need to cull. The study is published in the journal Oryx.

As a species of bat largely restricted to Mauritius, the Mauritian flying fox has an important role in helping to pollinate forest canopies and disperse the seeds of large trees in the islands declining forests. However, the bats also feed on cultivated fruit such as mango and lychee and are perceived to cause large economic losses to commercial fruit farmers (annual estimates equate to five million US dollars). Until now, information on the scale of damage directly linked to the bats and the efficacy of mitigation interventions has been lacking.

Libyan govt says Gaddafi's billions were 'not misused', but they're still missing Signs of the Times

Interest on Muammar Gaddafi's frozen funds in Belgian banks is not subject to UN sanctions and has not been misused or embezzled, the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) insisted following reports to the contrary. The interest payments amounting to nearly 5 billion ($5.7 billion) had been deposited in "special authority accounts abroad," until the end of October 2017, when the payments stopped, the LIA said, as quoted by the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya network. The accounts are in Luxembourg, the UK and Bahrain, the Libyan agency noted. Gaddafi's assets were frozen in 2011, when NATO intervened on behalf of rebels in Libya to overthrow the long-time leader. Citing British and Belgian legal documents, the LIA insists that interest on frozen assets is not subject to the sanctions, and had been regularly paid out to their accounts. Where exactly the funds went, however, is still being investigated, the agency said in a statement provided to RT.

Italy hosts Macron-snubbing Libya peace conference as energy vultures circle petroleum assets Signs of the Times

A two-day Libya conference is starting in Palermo, Italy - an event widely perceived as a counter to a similar gathering organized by France in May - as two European countries compete for the fractured nation's oil and gas assets. The meeting in Sicily is meant to bring together key stakeholders involved in the ongoing turbulence in Libya. The North African country, which once prided itself for high standards of living that were paid for by oil exports, remains in chaos seven years after a NATO-backed uprising ousted long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi. There are two rival governments in Libya and numerous smaller players with various tribal, ideological and political affiliations playing their own games. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte denied that the meeting organized by Macron last May had placed the two European countries at odds over Libya. However, Italy traditionally considers its former colony to be within its sphere of influence. France, which briefly occupied the...

Italian fiscal problem-Haushaltsstreit mit Italien blogfactory

In the budget dispute between the EU and Italy, EPP lead candidate Weber is calling for dialogue. What is currently heard from Rome is not encouraging, said the CSU politician on Deutschlandfunk. There are clear stability policy rules in the EU and there is a clear common position in the remaining euro states. Here you have to continue talking with Italy.

He hopes that in the end this dialogue will help. At the same time, Weber made clear that Europe could not be blackmailed. The European politician accused Italy of jeopardizing the entire success of the Eurozone. This is much more stable than the US or China, said Weber in the DLF (audio link).
The deadline for an improved budget plan of the Italian government is today. The European Commission had rejected the original draft three weeks ago and called for a revision. She sees a violation of the euro stability rules and criticizes, among other things, that the new debt for the coming year should be three times as high as agreed with the previous Italian government. It is not expected that the current coalition of populist five-star movement and right-wing lega in the conflict settles. Without corrections Italy threatens an excessive deficit procedure, which can lead to high fines or cuts in EU aid.

Er hoffe, dass am Schluss dieser Dialog helfe. Weber stellte aber zugleich klar, Europa sei nicht erpressbar. Der Europa-Politiker warf Italien vor, den gesamten Erfolg der Eurozone zu gefhrden. Dabei sei diese deutlich stabiler als die USA oder China, sagte Weber im DLF(audio-link).

Die Frist fr einen verbesserten Budgetplan der italienischen Regierung luft heute ab. Die EU-Kommission hatte den ursprnglichen Entwurf vor drei Wochen abgelehnt und eine berarbeitung gefordert. Sie sieht einen Versto gegen die Euro-Stabilittsregeln und kritisiert unter anderem, dass die Neuverschuldung fr das kommende Jahr drei Mal so hoch liegen soll wie mit der frheren italienischen Regierung vereinbart. Es wird nicht damit gerechnet, dass die derzeitige Koalition aus populistischer Fnf-Sterne-Bewegung und rechtsgerichteter Lega in dem Konflikt einlenkt.

This Dark Matter Hurricane Is Passing Our Planet Right Now Awareness Act

Right now, there is a dark matter hurricane passing over our planet. This is something that scientists are monitoring closely and as it seems, learning a lot from.

This stream was identified last year and is not the first we have found. There are about 30 others like this one moving through our galaxy right now. Our solar system is inside of the S1 stream which is the one we are referring to in this article. This is something we will be facing for many many years to come and it should not affect us in any real physical way according to Astronomy.com.

A study on this dark matter hurricane was published just days ago and its abstract goes as follows:

The recently discovered S1 stream passes through the Solar neighborhood on a low inclination, counterrotating orbit. The progenitor of S1 is a dwarf galaxy with a total mass comparable to the present-day Fornax dwarf spheroidal, so the stream is expected to have a significant DM component. We compute the effects of the S1 stream on WIMP and axion detectors as a function of the density of its unmeasured dark component. In WIMP detectors the S1 stream supplies more high energy nuclear recoils so will marginally improve DM detection prospects. We find that even if S1 comprises less than 10% of the local density, multiton xenon WIMP detectors can distinguish the S1 stream from the bulk halo in the relatively narrow mass range between 5 and 25 GeV. In directional WIMP detectors such as CYGNUS, S1 increases DM detection prospects more substantially since it enhances the anisotropy of the WIMP signal. Finally, we show that axion haloscopes possess by far the greatest potential sensitivity to the S1 stream if its dark matter component is sufficiently cold. Once the axion mass has been discovered, the distinctive velocity distribution of S1 can easily be extracted from the axion power spectrum.

We shouldnt be too concerned or afraid of this type of thing as it is theorized that dark matter already makes up around 85 percent of the matter within our Universe as it is. That being said, the whole concept in itself is quite mind-blowing. While it might be a bit hard to follow the things we will learn from it might really bring forth a lot more knowledge in this world about dark matter itself.

With its new fund, the Cleveland-based Evergreen Cooperatives have a bold goal: to make it easy to transition a business to worker-ownership.

In May, the Evergreen Cooperatives, a network of worker-owned businesses in Cleveland, took over operations of a laundry facility owned by the Cleveland Clinic. On the surface, it was a straightforward business transaction. The Evergreen Cooperatives launched in 2009 with Evergreen Cooperative Laundry, a small business owned and operated by just a handful of workers. Today, the whole network comprises the laundry, as well as a cooperative green energy business and an urban farm, and employs more than 220 people. After nearly a decade of steady growth, the Evergreen Cooperatives wanted to expand, and taking over operations of the Cleveland Clinic laundry facility was an opportunity to do so.

More Accurate World Map Wins Prestigious Design Award Terra Forming Terra

AuthaGraph Map

Of course it distorts the oceans rather badly, but it does conserve land area.  All map work should work against alternate projections and this one is particularly valuable.  At least Europe compares nicely to India and the Indonesian archipelago compares to the USA as does Brazil and China.

The sub sea should also be mapped in in order to allow for lining up edges in the Atlantic and to check voids in the Pacific.  The perimeter has been left out here.

That is picky though for an excellent piece of work..

The Human Brain Can Create Structures in Up to 11 Dimensions Terra Forming Terra

main article image



The word dimension is distracting but perhaps properly is an indication of uniqueness and allows the usage of the mathematics in order to generate inferences.  Cliques exist and these are a powerful indication of meaning in space and surely in time as well..
 
At this instance it is a new beginning.
 
All good.

The Human Brain Can Create Structures in Up to 11 Dimensions

https://www.sciencealert.com/science-discovers-human-brain-works-up-to-11-dimensions


Last year, neuroscientists used a classic branch of maths in a totally new way to peer into the structure of our brains.

What they discovered is that the brain is full of multi-dimensional geometrical structures operating in as many as 11 dimensions.

We're used to thinking of the world from a 3-D perspective, so this may sound a bit tricky, but the results of this study could be the next major step in understanding the fabric of the human brain - the most complex structure we know of.

This brain model was produced by a team of researchers from the Blue Brain Project, a Swiss research initiative devoted to building a supercomputer-powered reconstruction of the human brain.

The team used algebraic topology, a branch of mathematics used to describe the properties of objects and spaces regardless of how they change shape.

They found that groups of neurons connect into 'cliques', and that the number of neurons in a clique would lead to its size as a high-dimensional geometric object (a mathematical dimensional concept, not a space-time one).

Ratcliffe, Gowdy join list of potential attorney general picks Terra Forming Terra



Unsurprising to see Gowdy's name here as he is now obviously available.   Yet he joins a short list of key individuals clearly read in including Sessions to the PLAN.  Good men are been recruited and pre positioned.  

What that does do is pretty well render the public narrative as suspect.  The core objective is literally draining the swamp.  Mil Intel has been involved for decades and all are willing participants.  Watch the show.

It is now clear that the voter fraud system operated by the Democrats is been outed and expect this to fill the media for weeks and months to come.  We are seeing them been caught in action with a  full spotlight on them.  This was totally planned.

The DEMs will literally need to reconstitute them self.  It is that bad and it will be that public..

WASHINGTON Two members of congress, a cabinet official, a presidential confidant and a frequent guest on Fox News are among those being considered by President Donald Trump to be the next attorney general, multiple sources tell NBC News.



One of those, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, was a close adviser to the president in his 2016 presidential campaign. He has been largely sidelined by the administration since then but resurfaced at the White House on Thursday for what White House officials said was for a previously scheduled meeting on prison reform.


Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, and retiring Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, have also joined the list of those in the running, the sources say.

4 Steps to Avoid NSA Detection on the Web Humans Are Free

We unfortunately live in the age of surveillance, when agencies like the NSA and FBI push and cross the boundaries of unconstitutional actions.

This means that everybody needs to take steps to protect their data. Obviously, there is no such thing as total protection, and a determined individual or organization with a lot of time and money on their hands can break any security if they want.

But you can make your data and communications so hard to access on the Internet that it will deter the bad guys. The harder it is to access your information, the more likely hackers, spies and other cyber pests will go elsewhere.

Pilots say Boeing failed to warn of 737 feature tied to Indonesia crash blogfactory

Pilots say Boeing failed to warn of 737 feature tied to Indonesia crash

Nov. 12, 2018 6:58 PM  SA Editor Carl Surran

  • Two U.S. pilots unions say the potential risks of a safety feature on Boeings (NYSE:BA) 737 Max aircraft that has been linked to a deadly crash in Indonesia were not sufficiently explained in their manuals or training, Bloomberg reports.
  • Since Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration issued directives last week telling flight crews about the new system, pilots, unions and training departments have said none of the documentation for the Max family of aircraft included an explanation of the system, according to the report.
  • Indonesian investigators say an erroneous sensor on the plane caused its computers to push the plane into a steep dive ahead of the Oct. 29 crash;
  • Boeing and the FAA said in the directives that an existing procedure could have halted the dive.

Could this leave Boeing open to be sued?

California wildfires: At least 42 dead, 200 missing, 250k evacuated, over 7000 buildings destroyed - Camp Fire becomes the deadliest in state history Signs of the Times

The death toll in California has risen to 42 and 228 people are still missing as three major wildfires continue to sweep across the state. An estimated 250,000 people have been displaced from their homes. Thirteen more people were confirmed dead from the "Camp Fire" in Paradise, northern California, taking the toll in that area to 42 and making it the deadliest fire in California history. Paradise, some 90 miles (145 km) north of Sacramento, has been completely destroyed by the blaze, with the authorities saying that up to 90 percent of the residents lost their homes. The death toll is expected to rise. An estimated quarter million Californians have been forced to flee their homes to escape the three blazing infernos across the state. Strengthening winds mean the flames are expected to spread even further by Tuesday. So far, the fires have spread to some 400 square miles (1,040 square km) as some 8,000 firefighters are still unable to contain the inferno.

Democratic Presidential Candidate of 2020 Plans to Give Every American $1000 Per Month Awareness Act

The topic of American politics has been a been on the tip of nearly everyones tongue recently, with Trump regularly making the news on a global scale. Whether youre talking about broken promises, policies changed or his recent most recent Twitter exploits, hes certainly drawn everyones attention.

Whether youre a Trump fan, or you find yourself rolling your eyes every time you see his face appear in your social media newsfeed, one thing is true. His actions, decisions, and changes have triggered an important conversation regarding the political state of our nation and how we would like to see it shape up in the future. In fact, this years midterm election saw a record-breaking voter turnout. Trumps America, love it or hate it, has certainly caught the attention of the nation, young and old.

Recognizing that Trump has made his fair share of enemies, Democratic candidates have come out of the woodwork, sharing their view of the current political climate of the United States, the problems they have identified and their proposed solutions. This includes not only the more traditional policies and views, but also some radical new ideas that may just change the way our country operates.

One such candidate, Andrew Yang, has taken to the internet to share his views, and they sure have people talking! The central point to his platform for President 2020? Yang would like to institute a concept called Universal Basic Income (UBI) to the United States.

Yangs website explains, The UBI he is proposing for the United States is a set of guaranteed payments of $1,000 per month, or $12,000 per year, to all U.S. citizens between the ages of 18 and 64. Yes, that means you and everyone you know would get another $1,000/month every month from the U.S. government, no questions asked.

Citing the loss of jobs that Americans are currently facing, and the fact that many positions we once held are being replaced by new technology, Yang believes we are facing a new problem, and the only way to solve it is to introduce a new solution. This would ensure that all Americans have at least a basic income, regardless of their employment status, no strings attached during the time they are of working age. It ends at 64, as those who are 65+ would then collect Social Security in its place.

Yangs proposed solution doesnt come without some serious research, In fact, he cites a total of 461 research papers on the topic that have been published since 1998. Yang states, Experiments with unconditional cash benefits around the world have proven to be one of the most successful ways of reducing poverty. The fear that cash recipients would waste their money on drugs or alcohol, stop working...

Democrat Is Declared Winner of Senate Seat in Arizona Truthdig RSS

PHOENIX Democrat Kyrsten Sinema won Arizonas open U.S. Senate seat Monday in a race that was among the most closely watched in the nation, beating Republican Rep. Martha McSally in the battle to replace GOP Sen. Jeff Flake.

The three-term congresswoman won after a slow vote count that dragged on for nearly a week after voters went to the polls on Nov. 6. She becomes Arizonas first Democratic U.S. senator since 1994. Her win cemented Arizona as a swing state after years of Republican dominance.

Sinema portrayed herself as a moderate who works across the aisle to get things done. Sinema first came to prominence as an openly bisexual Green Party activist in Phoenix.

McSally, a former Air Force pilot who embraced President Donald Trump after opposing him during the 2016 elections, had claimed that Sinemas anti-war protests 15 years ago disqualified her and said one protest amounted to what she called treason.

Sinema and supporters rushed to a Scottsdale resort Monday night after the latest batch of ballots showed her lead to be insurmountable.

Arizona rejected what has been far too common in our country name calling, petty, personal attacks and doing and saying what it takes to get elected, Sinema said as scores of backers waved her purple-and-yellow campaign sign. But Arizona proved that there is a better way forward.

McSally posted a video message to twitter. I just called Kyrsten Sinema and congratulated her on becoming Arizonas first female senator after a hard-fought battle, McSally said in the video, her pet golden retriever by her side. I wish her all success as she represents Arizona in the Senate.

During her six years in Congress, Sinema built one of most centrist records in the Democratic caucus, and she voted for bills backed by Trump more than 60 percent of the time. She backed legislation increasing penalties against people in the country illegally who commit crimes.

McSallys attacks on Sinema reached back more than 15 years, when Sinema was a Green Party spokeswoman and liberal activist.

McSally backed Trumps tax cut, border security and the Affordable Care Act repeal agenda as she survived a three-way GOP primary in August, defeating two conservative challengers who claimed her support for Trump was fake. McSally also campaigned on her military record and support for the Armed Forces.

Sinema attacked McSallys leadership of last years failed Affordable Care Act repeal effort as a sign that she would not protect Arizona residents with preexisting medical conditions. McSally argued that she would protect patients, despite her vote on the bill that would have removed many of those protections.

The contest drew more than $90 million in spending, including more than $58 million by outside groups, according to Federal Election Com...

Synchronicity: The One Thing That Truly Connects Us To This Universe Awareness Act

Synchronicity is a word thrown around quite frequently in the world of spiritualism, but what does it truly mean for us? While it might be easily summed up as a meaningful coincidence, synchronicities are much more than their definition might say.

Synchronicities are signs that we are following the path that we need to be on. It is the Universes way of speaking to us and we need to remember that. This is something that proves just how one we are with the Universe itself and should not be overlooked.

Synchronicities come in a wide range and can be anything from seeing someone you had on your mind to noticing numbers that repeat throughout your day. These are experiences we have been preprogrammed to have. Your soul through following these synchronicities is sending you on a journey in its one ways.

Whether you are someone that knows a lot about this topic or just someone finally diving in the more you learn the more you will understand. In this life, we will never know it all and will always be growing through the things we learn. The term synchronicity itself was coined by the psychologist Carl Jung. It was something he believed in strongly.

Crystal Links wrote as follows in regards to the examples of synchronicity you might notice in your life:

You are suffering from financial difficulties, yet money for basic expenses such as rent, food, and utilities, always manifests. You begin to trust this. At first, you thank the universe or god, then you realize you create this abundance. You are learning to watch how you manifest and why, watching yourself from outside the box.

You have just received your last check from unemployment when suddenly a job comes along.

You walk into a bookstore not knowing what to buy, and the book you need falls from a shelf and practically hits you over the head.

You have been feeling ill with no clear diagnosis. You meet someone who knows a doctor or healer with the answers. All physical problems stem from emotional issues. Your soul will point out the patterns and hopefully the solutions. When the person is ready to heal, the doctor will be there. That person will often show up by synchronicity. This all stems from various levels of depression and self-sabotage stemming from ones DNA or life experiences that have worn them down. When you are confused and in emotional pain, you either have trouble manifesting synchronicities or they are major learning lessons.

There is a sudden relocation which seems to be for one reason, but later you find much more than you bargained for as the synchronicities rapid occur as if a domino effect. For example, you relocate for a new job, then, as if by...

This CIA/Vatican organized Satanic worship involved international child exploitation, kidnapping, pedophilia and human sacrifice, although perpetrators were likely charged with other crimes due to the difficulty in obtaining evidence on child abuse offenses.

Poland to Break with EU by 2020? Armstrong Economics

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; When you were here last giving lectures in Poland, you said that we should leave the EU, retain our currency, and focus on our ties to the United States and Asia. You said if we did that, Poland would be one of the most imp[ortant economies in Europe. Have you updated that forecast at all?

Thank you

It was a tremendous honor to shake your hand in Warsaw.

JF

ANSWER: Poland is and will remain at the center of economic growth within Europe and it will still experience increasing political influence. Polands population wont decline as much as those of the other major European economies and that is critical moving forward economically. Poland is also the most prosperous European state on Russias western border. That will mean that it will expand its position as a regional leader with political and economic prestige.

The Zloty has strengthened against the dollar and the Euro. The critical time where Poland may see this break with the EU could come in 2020.

Was it really a coincidence that Blankfein stepped down which appeared to be running for the exit door and then within three months the news breaks that he was deeply involved in the corruption scandal in Malaysia.

Black security guard killed by police while stopping a bar shooting BlackListed News

Responding to reports of a bar shooting, police in a southern suburb of Chicago shot and killed the heroic security guard as he was subduing the gunman. Local residents say the killer cops are unlikely to be punished. Jemel Roberson, 26, was shot dead by Midlothian police officers after they mistook him for the suspect in a shooting call. The victim turned out to be a security guard at the bar where the incident took place - and had been in the process of restraining the perpetrator when police officers shot and killed him.

Austria arrests second spy for Russia in a week: media reports BlackListed News

Authorities in Austria have arrested a second alleged spy for Russia in a week, according to media reports. Several Austrian news outlets reported on Monday that police had arrested an Austrian counterintelligence officer on suspicion of passing classified information to Russian intelligence. The news follows reports late last week of the arrest of an unnamed retired colonel in the Austrian Army, who is believed to have spied for Russia since 1988.

California carnage: 42 dead in wildfires, 200 missing, 250k evacuated (PHOTOS, VIDEOS) BlackListed News

The death toll in California has risen to 42 and 228 people are still missing as three major wildfires continue to sweep across the state. An estimated 250,000 people have been displaced from their homes. Thirteen more people were confirmed dead from the Camp Fire in Paradise, northern California, taking the toll in that area to 42 and making it the deadliest fire in California history. Paradise, some 90 miles (145 km) north of Sacramento, has been completely destroyed by the blaze, with the authorities saying that up to 90 percent of the residents lost their homes. The death toll is expected to rise.

US Farmers Are Stashing Soybeans In Toolsheds And Caves As They Wait Out Trade War BlackListed News

Amid China's worsening trade-war fueled economic slide, the Communist country's April decision to slap a 25% tariff on imports of US soybeans has remained one of its most rewarding retaliatory maneuvers. So far, at least, the food-price inflation that many feared would follow hasn't materialized - while the plunge in soybean purchases (imports to China fell 94% between the beginning of September and mid-October) has helped maximize the pressure on Trump-supporting farmers in North Dakota, Iowa and across the US farm belt.

"Rock the Vote" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

"Rock the Vote"
by Jim Kunstler

It warmed my heart to read in The Wall Street Journal that Hillary Clinton is preparing to re-enter the Washington DC swamp from her deluxe exile in the woods of Chappaqua, New York, and make another run for the White House - though its hard to calculate how many porters in sandals and loincloths will be required to lug all her baggage around the campaign trail. Will hubbie hit the hustings with her? That would be rich. I can just imagine the pussy-hatted legions shrieking #MeToo at every stop. Surely there is no better way to put the Democratic Party out of its misery.

The post-election melodramas in Georgia and Florida grind on, despite the various rules and laws about deadlines for certifying ballots and accounting for their origin. What is a ballot after all but a mere scrap of paper, easily reproducible, and interchangeable. Sometimes, they make strange journeys out of election headquarters in trucks and SUVs, seeking fun and excitement, and they have been known to mysteriously turn up by the hundredweight in broom closets where they retreat to caucus. Only one thing is certain: the ballot fiasco is a billable hours bonanza for DC lawyers arriving on the scene to sort things out - which they may not manage anyway.

If the vote count somehow remains in favor of the provisional winners - Republicans Rick Scott, Ron DeSantis (Fla), and Brian Kemp (Ga) - you can be sure well be in a frenzy of sore loserdom that will make the Medieval ergot outbreaks of yore look like episodes of Peewees Playhouse. If the provisional votes get overturned, the attorneys billable hours will quickly exceed the national debt, and well find ourselves in a new era where the free...

To Whip or not to whip! Is this the question? - Article by Barrie Tapp (We) can do better

A no whip rule would place all jockeys on equal terms in their efforts to win races, whilst avoiding suffering to the horses.

A horse's reaction to a whip has been compared glibly to their reaction to a fly landing on their coat: "When a fly lands on a horse, it flinches," we are told. Thus we are supposed to infer that when a horse flinches under the whip, they are not experiencing any more pain than they would with the landing of a tiny insect. But this is a false analogy with the effect on a horse that is being whipped or flogged for the purpose of making it go faster. Furthermore, some horses reject whips being used and at times jack up and refuse to run.

The fly episode landing on a horse has little effect at all. It annoys the horse and the horse flinches, BUT the whip certainly inflicts a certain amount of pain/suffering.

The experts tell us that jockeys carry the whip for safety reasons, but according to 'research' that doesnt stack up either. We have witnessed many jockeys not having to use the whip at all.

At times riders are charged and fined for overuse of the whip - but exactly what does this mean?

If the stewards in their own minds OR within the rules of racing come to the conclusion that any horse in any race has been subjected to overuse" or that a rule has been broken, then, in the opinion of the community, it means only one thing: that a rider has inflicted pain/suffering to the horse under their control to make it go faster!!

If there is an alleged act of cruelty, this offence must be prosecuted by the independent authority (RSPCA OR DEPI) with the power to lay charges under the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals Act (POCTA). Naturally there should first be an investigation, but not by Racing Victoria Limited (RVL) or the stewards. That would be too much like Dracula in charge of the blood bank!

In my opinion, RSPCA OR DEPI must investigate any alleged infringements by any organisation when it comes to an allegation of cruelty to any creature, great or small, irrespective whether or not there is an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in place. Some think that MOU really means, 'You dont investigate any cruelty on our turf. Stay away. We will do our own investigating.' RSPCA have an MOU with GRV and HRV. We think it is a cop out and thats the reason why we dont hear anymore live baiting happening. Animal Cruelty Hotline Australia has lodged a complaint about the whipping of horses in the Melbourne Cup to the RSPCA.

Free Yourself from Debts and Welcome Abundance Into Your Life With This Prayer Awareness Act

Everything in the Universe is made of energy, an undeniable force with the ability to lift us up and empower us, or, on the other hand, to tear our world apart. The difference is whether you are inviting positive or negative energy into your life.

Far too often we overlook the power that this energy holds. However, if we are able to identify and harness the opportunities for positive energy in our lives, we can use it to help us achieve great success. First, however, we must have an understanding of how these energies work.

There is no avoiding negative energy entirely, as great as that would be. Unfortunately, each and every one of us lives in a world where we will be subject to it on a regular basis. There are, however, steps that one can take to protect ourselves from this negativity, including little changes as simple as choosing not to engage in the drama that we may encounter and focusing our attention on finding solutions in life instead of dwelling on the problems. As the law of attraction states, if you are one that puts positivity out into the world, you will receive positivity in return. Sounds easy, doesnt it?

Despite your best efforts to always come out on top, we will all face challenges and difficulties at one time or another in our lives. For many, in todays society, this will come in the form of financial struggles, especially those living in lower or middle-income households. A study conducted by the global firm UBS revealed that 1/3 of the bottom 60% of income earners in the united states report being stressed. They define financial stress as the state one is in when their financial debts and obligations exceed 30% of their income, and their savings and assets would fail to carry them for 6 months in the event of a job loss or layoff.

While there are many changes you could try to employ in your life in order to improve your current financial state, such as working on building your savings, creating and sticking to a budget or seeking a better paying job, this is an example of a time where you can look at putting the energy of the Universe to work in a positive way in your life.

Prayer is a powerful tool that has been largely associated with organized religion, such as Christianity, however, this powerful tool has uses outside of the church as well. Even those who dont believe in organized religion can embrace the power of prayer, regardless of their beliefs in regard to a higher power or the bigger picture. It is for this reason that an estimated...

15 Things You Should Never Google You Have Been Warned! Awareness Act

There is no arguing the fact that Google has come to be an integral part of our society today. Even the simplest, most mundane questions are met with the phrase Ill Google it as if there is no other obvious answer. After all, the internet holds the answer to everything, right?

Sure, there are other search engines available, but Google is currently used for over 63% of searches in the United States today. However, if there is one thing that our generation has learned the hard way, its that we need to be careful what exactly we are searching. After all, a seemingly innocent search may return some REALLY messed up results especially if you dont have Safe Search enabled!

While no one can predict every questionable search out there, many people have taken to social media to share their own errors in an effort to help others learn from their mistakes. Unless youve got a fascination with the disturbing, frightening and gory corners of the internet, you may just want to take this advice to heart.

Here are 15 things you should avoid searching on Google:

#1 2 Kids, 1 Sandbox

The title sounds innocent enough, but the video that this will trigger is anything but! There are a few questionable adult videos that have made their way around the internet and this is one that has left many men cowering in fear. The video shows a couple seemingly having a good time, in a 69 position. She is rubbing his penis with a dildo; however, the disturbing part comes when she proceeds to shove the half-inch thick object inside his penis, stretching his urethra out. Dont worry, it appears hes used to this treatment as he seems to be enjoying the process

#2 Jiggers

This is a search that is very real, and very disturbing. Unless you are going to be in a location where the chigoe flea or jigger is found (Central and South America, and sub-Saharan Africa) you may want to avoid acknowledging these disturbing parasitic insects exist at all. The jigger is so small in the beginning that its nearly invisible, burrowing into a persons skin to feed and lay its eggs. However, they then swell up reaching up to 1000 times their original size, while their eggs also start to hatch and take over the area. An infestation is painful and disturbing to see. Graphic images of the infestations are something you cant unsee.

#3 Tub Girl

Returning to the perceived sexy video topic, the title Tub Girl likes triggers some seriously sexual images in your mind of a young, fit woman surrounded by bubbles in the tub. However, if...

Scientists Have Officially Verified a Technique For Controlling Your Dreams Awareness Act

Have you ever wished you could control your dreams? Well as it turns out, you can.

Lucid dreaming is what we call the act of being aware of the fact that we are dreaming when we are dreaming. It is not as easy to do as most might think and gives us some control over how our dreams play out. Science has been looking into this kind of thing for years and many different researchers have their own takes on the phenomena.

Dr. Denholm Aspy is one of those researchers and he has been working to combine techniques in regards to making this an easier process. He has found that a combination of reality testing, WBTB, and the MILD technique together. The MILD technique basically consists of setting alarms at five-hour intervals to wake the sleeper so that he or she can recite the next time I am dreaming, I will remember that Im dreaming. MILD standing for Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams.

As reported by Science Daily Aspys methods for actually getting lucid dreaming to work for you go as follows:

1. reality testing which involves checking your environment several times a day to see whether or not youre dreaming.

2. wake back to bed waking up after five hours, staying awake for a short period, then going back to sleep in order to enter a REM sleep period, in which dreams are more likely to occur.

3. MILD (mnemonic induction of lucid dreams) which involves waking up after five hours of sleep and then developing the intention to remember that you are dreaming before returning to sleep, by repeating the phrase: The next time Im dreaming, I will remember that Im dreaming. You also imagine yourself in a lucid dream.

If you do these things you have a much greater chance of getting lucid dreaming to work for you. He has noted an almost 20 percent success rate within just a week which is good numbers considering the results others find. The more you do this and the longer you keep at it the better chances you will have.

It is also important to note that those who seemed to have success with the MILD technique in itself also noticed significantly better sleep in general. They did not feel as deprived and were much more alert.

The Real Reason You Are Terrified of Being In Love, According to the Zodiac Awareness Act

While we are often taught that love is one of the ultimate goals in life, a necessary key to finding happiness in this world. While there is no denying the fact that love can bring joy into our lives, its much more complicated than that! Are you afraid of love?

The problem is that love has the ability to bring us both untold joy and incredible pain. The only way to open the door for one is to also accept the possibility of the other. This is a step of pure faith, believing that those who you trust will have your best interests at heart and protect your heart.

Why is love so unpredictable? There are a lot of factors at play. On one hand, we are overwhelmed with hormones and biological reactions to the concept of love and attraction, encouraging us to seek out our perfect mate and build a life together. On the other hand, however, studies show that part of the experience of love can be explained as behavioral. We choose our actions, and those actions, in turn, trigger feelings. Therefore, we are capable of both creating and destroying these feelings of love each and every day.

Are you willing to take the risks necessary to seek true love, or do you build barriers to protect your heart from pain? These barriers may give you the impression of safety and security, but they may also prevent you from finding and connecting with the love of your life! The key to breaking these barriers down is to first identify why you are building them in the first place

What are you afraid of love, according to your zodiac sign?

Aries (Mar 21 Apr 19)

Bold, determined and adventurous, you certainly arent afraid to walk this world alone if you feel like it is the right path for you at this time. If there is one thing you fear, it is that anyone you bring into your life will try to hold you back or change you. This isnt something youre interested in settling for. In fact, youd rather run alone and free then feel trapped or tied down. Youre afraid of love due to the fact that youre afraid someone will try to put out that fire that burns so strongly within you. While opening up isnt something that comes naturally to you, finding a partner in crime could make your adventures all that much more fun.

Taurus (Apr 20 May 20)

Its no secret that youre stubborn and set in your ways. In fact, those around you will argue that youre so hard-headed that you will build barriers around your heart simply to maintain the life that you know and love. The idea of letting someone into your world would mean welcoming change, and there is nothing that you fear more. Th...

7. Stop giving a fuck about your weight if youre healthy.

Another Study Shows Cell Phone Radiation Is Carcinogenic Waking Times

Anna Hunt, Staff
Waking Times

For years, consumer electronics manufacturers have downplayed the harmful health effects of cell phones. Yet, as scientists research the impact of wireless technologies on the human body, speculations turn into hard evidence proving that cell phone radiation may be carcinogenic in nature.

The latest in such research is a study that showed clear evidence that male rats exposed to high levels of radio frequency radiation (RFR) like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones developed cancerous heart tumors. (1)

Cell Phone Radiation Causes Heart Tumors in Rats

The United States National Toxicology Program (NTP) recently made a formal declaration that a link exists between RFR and heart tumors in male rats. To ensure the accuracy of their studys results, the NTP collaborated with an external panel of scientific experts.

The organization conducted tests during which they exposed female and male rats, as well as mice, to high levels of RFR. The scientists exposed the entire bodies of the animals to the radiation, with the lowest level of exposure matching that of the maximum allowed in cell phones.

Reduce the harmful effects of EMF radiation with Aires Shield. (ad)

The study identified that a link exists between RFR and heart tumors in male rats. In addition, the results showed evidence of tumors on brains and adrenal glands in the same animal sample group.

We believe that the link between radio frequency radiation and tumors in male rats is real, and the external experts agreed, stated John Bucher, Ph.D., NTP senior scientist

164 Sick And 1 Dead Due To Salmonella Outbreak Linked To Turkey Awareness Act

Salmonella is something that terrifies a lot of people but with Thanksgiving coming up you NEED to know about this whole situation. The CDC has recently sent out a warning in regards to turkey and it might completely ruin your festivities.

According to the CDC, as of November 5th 164 people were infected with salmonella. Cases have been reported from at least 35 states and most of those who seem to have come down with this reported having prepared or eaten turkey products that were purchased raw. This would include turkey ground, whole turkey, and turkey pieces.

The CDC wrote as follows in their statement:

The outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading has been identified in samples from raw turkey pet food in Minnesota, from live turkeys from several states, and from raw turkey products collected from ill peoples homes. The raw turkey samples collected from ill peoples homes are still being investigated to determine the source of the turkey.

The outbreak strain was also identified in samples from raw turkey products from 22 slaughter and 7 processing establishments. The samples collected by FSIS at these slaughter and processing establishments were part of FSISs routine testing under the Salmonella performance standards. Furthermore, whole genome sequencing (WGS) showed that the Salmonella strain isolated from these samples is closely related genetically to the Salmonella strain from ill people. This result provides more evidence that people in this outbreak got sick from preparing raw turkey products.

WGS analysis did not identify predicted antibiotic resistance in 116 isolates from 53 ill people and 63 food and animal samples. However, 68 isolates from ill people and 84 isolates from food, animal, and environmental samples contained genes for resistance to all or some of the following antibiotics: ampicillin, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole, tetracycline, kanamycin, gentamicin, nalidixic acid, ciprofloxacin, ceftriaxone, and fosfomycin. Testing of five outbreak isolates using standard antibiotic susceptibility testing by CDCs National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) laboratory confirmed these results. Most of the infections in this outbreak are susceptible to the antibiotics that are commonly used for treatment, so this resistance likely will not affect the choice of antibiotic used to treat most people.

This basically means that the strain of salmonella we are facing is resistant to a number of drugs and is something we need to be cautious of. With no single source or supplier having been identified it could be an issue that spans from several different companies and end up a much bigger issue than it already is. Salmonella is something that can spread quickly and c...

As US sanctions kick in, Iranian navy prepared to protect oil tankers from 'any threats' Signs of the Times

Following US warnings dissuading port operators from allowing Iranian tankers to dock, Iran's top brass pushed back by reiterating that its navy is ready to protect ships against any threats. Iran's military is "prepared today as in the past" to protect against "any threats," and to ensure the safe passage of Iranian oil tankers, Rear-Admiral Mahmoud Mousavi, a deputy commander of the regular armed forces, said on Monday, Iranian news agency ISNA reports. He stressed that any "hindrances" to Iran's right to use international waterways "would be clearly unacceptable." The comments come a week after the United States unilaterally re-imposed sanctions on Tehran's oil, shipping and banking industries. Although it's unclear whether other nations will abide by Washington's diktats, US officials have hinted that Iranian ships will no longer be welcome in international waters.

Benjamin Fulford Report (Excerpt): "Secret Societies Agree to Save Planet" -- November 12, 2018 Operation Disclosure

Weekly Geo-political News and Analysis

Jesus Christ to marry Asian Goddess as East-West secret societies agree to save planet


By Benjamin Fulford, White Dragon Society
2018-11-12



For the first time in history, Eastern and Western secret societies have agreed to work together for the benefit of the planet, secret society sources say. As one Western secret society source put it, Jesus Christ is going to get married to Guan Yin [the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy].

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guanyin

The result is that unlimited funding is going to be made available to fund projects to help the living creatures of this planet, human and otherwise, the sources say. However, since we are entering historically uncharted waters, it will probably take a few months before the actual work can begin, the sources say.

At present there are several competing plans being presented at the highest levels of world power. The Vatican and the P2 Freemasons want to make funds available to existing nation-states through selected individuals, P2 sources say. The Chinese have already started their work through their One Belt One Road program. The white hats in the Pentagon and the military-industrial complex are promoting their NESARA and GESARA Global Currency Reset ideas.

Enough money is theoretically available for all of these projects to go ahead simultaneously. However, there is agreement that any release of funds will have to be firmly connected to reality and real-world projects if we are to avoid hyperinflation or asset inflation, as we have under the current system.

The White Dragon Society has also put forward proposals that have been given initial approval by both Eastern and Western secret societies, WDS...

The original documents are sequestered and those individuals directly involved are still under a strict gag order. I have used as my foundation a history written by James Rink. My research set out to prove NESARA by locating original documents and articles written by reputable people that illustrated each of the tenets. I have inserted some of these URLs for these tenets into Rinks history. In my 7+ years of research, I have found nothing to disprove the existence of the NESARA LAW. The internet is loaded with disinformation that can be easily dismissed by research.

Now that information regarding the government/military cover-up of the extraterrestrial presence is in the public domain, we can see parallels of the facets regarding NESARA that many have used to discredit it. Some of these are: deliberate cover-up of information, government/military gag orders, the suspicious death of persons who attempted to tell the truth, control of the media, and the ruining of individual lives and professions.

I encourage all to do your own research and add to the pool of documented evidence on the truth of NESARA.

Now is the perfect time for NESARA to be released to the world!

European mindset will not strike bargain with the Taliban - Russian envoy to Afghanistan Signs of the Times

The Taliban today is "very different" from a simple terrorist group and true peace in war-torn Afghanistan can't be achieved without talks with militants, Russia's special envoy to the nation, Zamir Kabulov, told RT. No parties should approach the Afghanistan issue "using a European mindset," but should rather "think Oriental" and treat the idea of the Taliban's participation in inter-Afghan peace negotiations as political bargaining, Kabulov said. "Only long, patient talks may bring the [Taliban's] high bargaining points to the ground of reality," he stated.

'Exposed Russian mole in Austrian military': Britain's little revenge against Austria for not sanctioning Moscow over Skripal saga Signs of the Times

An Austrian officer, who is accused of having spied for Russia for two decades, has been exposed by the British, who wanted to drive a wedge between Vienna and Moscow, an Austrian newspaper claims. The espionage scandal in Austria erupted last Friday when the prosecution of a retired colonel for alleged espionage for Moscow was made public by the national media and later confirmed by the government. The reports said a former intelligence service tipped off the Austrians that they had a mole in their military ranks. While initially the foreign nation was believed to be Germany, there are now claims that the tip-off came from Britain and that London had ulterior political motives in providing it.

Media Lies Again -- Trump Did Not Miss the Armistice Day Ceremony Operation Disclosure

President Trump Did NOT Miss the Armistice Day Ceremony

Contrary to a deliberate media misinformation campaign, the president did attend.

Nov. 12, 2018

Source: Patriot Post | By Mark Alexander



This past weekend, President Donald Trump was in France to mark the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day, still known in Europe as Armistice Day. On Sunday, he joined other world leaders for a solemn ceremony at Suresnes American Cemetery outside of Paris. That site is the final resting place for 1,541 Americans.

In his remarks, the president observed, In that treacherous forest and the surrounding fields, American Marines, Soldiers, and Allied forces fought, and they fought through hell, to turn the tide of the war. We fought well together. He concluded, It is our duty to preserve the civilization they defended and to protect the peace they so nobly gave their lives to secure one century ago.

But you would be hard-pressed to find coverage of that ceremony.

According to saturated news reports by Leftmedia outlets Sunday, Trump missed the 100th anniversary ceremony at least that was the confusing message they delivered in mass. In fact, by Sunday night, headlines like The Hills Trump criticized after White House cancels cemetery visit in France over weather dominated the news, numbering what seemed like 100-1 over reports about the actual Veterans Day ceremony the president did attend. ABC breathlessly proclaimed, Trumps rain check on honoring Americans killed in WWI prompts backlash. Of course, The Washington Post led with Critics pile on after Trump can...

Counter-Offer to Manna World Holdings Trust, November 11, 2018



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

1. Perhaps you could explain how Marduk had any legitimate right of control or ownership of the assets he transferred to you? Because to my certain knowledge, you are claiming control of assets that weren't his and aren't yours to meddle with. The law is: possession by pirates does not change ownership. He could not give you authority or legitimacy he didn't have himself. So let's see Marduk's chain of provenance and bona fides establishing his interest and role in assets like the V.K. Durham Trust and the D'Avila Trust .... all approximately 5,000 of the private trusts that have been swept up in a big bag and handed to you to dispose of.

2. Renaming a trust or group of trusts to create a new legal person, e.g., changing the name of Alpha and Omega Trust to Manna World Holdings Trust doesn't give you any new authority or grant any new authority to the trust you made up out of thin air. Remember that these trusts contain actual assets, not digits, and fall under the Law of the Land, not legal and statutory provisions.

3. I didn't credit or accuse you of creating the QFS--- simply using it with Marduk's help--- to purloin control of approximately 5,000 Special Deposit Accounts, the actual donors of which never elected you (or him) as trustees. This is a sticking point. Actual assets deposited by people and organizations in Good Faith in a bank should not be seized upon by anyone but the lawful depositors. Interference with these assets and normal bank protocols is a threat to all private property rights and also whatever public confidence people can still have in the banks.

4. You are not the only good person out there. I have met plenty of good solid people who are legitimate private trustees with proof of trusteeship over accounts you are now controlling as an Executor de Son Tort. You blame them for not deploying assets to help Mankind sooner --- but surely you know or have cause...

BATR: The Metaphysics of the Political Tribulation Operation Disclosure

The Metaphysics of the Political Tribulation

Life would be beautiful if politics was not the reflection of the fallen nature of the human race. All of history irrefutably proves that escaping the political conflict is impossible. Most refuse to admit this fact of existence. The vast hordes of spineless slaves that refuse to confront the immorality of the global power structure attempt to avoid politics as too distasteful and bothersome to participate. Even more worrisome are the gullible who erroneously believe that the planet can be converted into an earthly paradise if only a progressive secular society can be imposed upon every culture and governmental institution. For these desperate libtards, destroying Western Civilization is necessary in order to eradicate the dangerous values of individual freedom and national liberty.

The essence of the character and substance of the political condition embodies the metaphysics of human interaction. No reputable historian would deny that the North American continent was settled by Europeans which replaced the native indigenous population with Christian mores as practiced primarily by Great Britain, France and Spain. Each of these cultures was based upon a religious belief reflected in the Old Testament Bible and Gospels of Jesus Christ.

The prophecy of the Tribulation during the last days is foretold in both the old and new testaments. While many modern day apostates from the Christendom tradition view this revelation in a religious context, most ignore the political component that is an integral part of the chaos that defines the upheaval.

Empirical evidence traces and confirms that with the dissolution in a belief and submission to divine authority societies gravitate into an abyss of relativism and meaningless purpose. The United States ceased to be a legitimate Republic long ago. The psychotic notion that substituting a Democracy for lawful constitutional, based on natural rights, has a preordained outcome.

Matters of Sociological Pathology and Psychology -- The End of the Western World Operation Disclosure

Matters of Sociological Pathology and - Psychology and the End of the Western World as we know it!

Sociology and Social Science are studies about the origin, development, organisation, structure and functioning of society and the fundamental laws of social relations. In these studies we can measure how well these studies operate in a society. Like in Pathology and Psychology you make diagnoses about the state of a society by using measurements in those above-name studies.

Pathology is a medical specialty that determines the cause and nature of diseases, by examining the human body!

Psychology is the study of human behaviour and the process associated with how people think and feel, conduct research and provide treatment and counselling in order to reduce distress and behavioural and psychological problems.

And if the doctor is not doing the right diagnosis, the patient, in this case the society will not heal.

What is done in Pathology and Psychology at a human body, can also be done on a whole Society.

If the certain studies of a Society show bad results, then you can be sure that there is something wrong with the Society and we speak in general of a sick society. In particular in the structure of a society you find in these days a lot of people who contribute to the dis-function of society and create a financial burden to society. Money which should be put into a positive development of a society are wasted on people who deliberately engage in a life-style which makes them sick. For example drug-users and people who engage in Sex-, Drugs & Rockn Roll.

Almost half of the total population (45,5 %) experienced mental disorders at some point in their life-time. That was in 2009. In addition to this, 20 % of Australians experience mental illness in any year up to now, aggravating the situation of 2009.

Israel, Hamas Trade Heavy Fire After Deadly Incursion Truthdig RSS

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Palestinian militants bombarded Israel with dozens of rockets and mortar shells Monday, while Israeli warplanes struck targets throughout the Gaza Strip in what appeared to be the most intense exchange of fire since a 2014 war.

Palestinian officials said at least three people, including two militants, were killed by Israeli fire and nine were wounded, and an Israeli airstrike destroyed the ruling Hamas groups TV station. In Israel, the national rescue service said at least 20 people were wounded, including a 19-year-old soldier and a 60-year-old woman who were in critical condition.

The fighting cast doubt over recent understandings brokered by Egypt and U.N. officials to reduce tensions. Just a day earlier, Israels prime minister had defended those understandings, saying he was doing everything possible to avoid another war.

The United Nations said it was working with Egypt to broker a halt in the violence. Rockets must STOP, restraint must be shown by all! the U.N. Mideast envoys office tweeted.

The rocket fire was triggered by a botched Israeli military raid in Gaza on Sunday. Undercover troops, apparently on a reconnaissance mission, were discovered inside Gaza on Sunday, setting off a battle that left seven militants, including a Hamas commander, and an Israeli military officer dead.

Around sundown on Monday, militants launched some 100 rockets in less than an hour, the most intense barrage since the 50-day war four years ago. The outgoing rockets, which continued into the evening, lit up the skies of Gaza and set off air raid sirens throughout southern Israel.

The military said warplanes, helicopters and tanks had struck over 70 militant targets, including military compounds, observation posts and weapons facilities. It also said it targeted a squad that was launching rockets.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said the army had sent additional infantry troops, rocket defense systems and intelligence units to the Gaza frontier.

We continue to strike and retaliate against the military targets belonging to terrorist organizations in Gaza, and as for our intentions we will enhance these efforts as needed, he told reporters.

Late Monday, an airstrike destroyed the Gaza City headquarters of Hamas Al Aqsa TV station. Israel had fired warning shots ahead of the airstrike, prompting the station to halt programming and replace it with a logo. Minutes later, the airstrike flattened the three-story building and the station went black.

Workers had evacuated the building after the warning shots, and there were no immediate reports of casualties.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum condemned the bombing as a barbaric, brazen aggression. Ten minutes later, the station resumed broadcasts, airing prerecorded national songs.

Israel said the station broadcasts viole...

The Substance We Seek by Galactic Soul


In our contemporary "cabal" culture we have charged money to represent our creative power. One can manifest anything with enough money. By inserting money into the process, however, control over our creative abilities was achieved. Nonetheless , even with the use of money this is the minds way of proving we DO have the ability to manifest what we desire. Obsession with the having of money, however, has diminished the memories of our true abilities to manifest. Work in the phi-cycle or physical world - our labor - has been deeply instilled as necessary to acquire desires when we, as energetic beings, have been endowed with something much more powerful: true manifesting is a resonance skill.....

IMAGINE those that are sick in hospital beds are being filled with glowing radiant health, or those that are hungry are being filled with nurturing foods, or the minds of fearful are being calmed and awakened to see beyond any memory of their fear, or the different tribes and peoples of our world are celebrating and sharing rich cultures of food , music, dance and story.....

Hold these images, seeing them unfold and feel the warmth and glow of the creative alliance gathering around you as you do - for they are attracted by the same indwelling intentions to manifest the wonder and joy of being ....

These are the resonance skills of the living technology within each human soul - unlimited in their reach to create good, for such intentions travel an already existing fabric of creation merely as an individual idea -a query overlay - to manifest.

Intentions for abundant life are propelled and reinforced to BE by the quality of their resonance. They match or "synch up" with already predisposed creational potentials so they unfold to fullness more easily than ideas based in fear or ego-centric origins.

Intentions for radiant health, abundance beyond need, a society enjoying the abundant blessings of peace, etc. when held as coherent thought/emotion (causal prayer), create filaments which attract the (angelic) sub-atomic plasma fields where intelligence to draw the geometry codes for dimensional manifestation are attached that the intention may be drawn into form.

Tropical Trump Declares War on Amazonia Dissident Voice

When it comes to planetary carnage, Trump (Amerikas president) is facing strong competition. Brazils new president Jair Bolsonaro aka Tropical Trump will likely outdo Amerikas destroy the EPA Trump. Bolsonaro declared war on the Amazon rain forest. Thus, hell likely outpace Trumps arbitrary efforts at eco annihilation because he has a much bigger target!

The Amazon Rainforest, affectionately known as the planets lungs, inhales CO2 and exhales precious oxygen (O), which serves as a life force for every living being on the planet. As a result, everybody from New Zealand to Finland is impacted by what happens to the global rain forests; unlike Las Vegas, what happens in the tropical rain forest does not stay in the tropical rain forest.

Significantly, a University of Leeds study found forests absorb 35% of human-made fossil fuel emissions (CO2) every year. Dr. Simon Lewis, a tropical ecologist from the University of Leeds and co-author of the study, said trees are much more important to tackling climate change than previously thought. The large uptake of CO2 by forests implies that the worlds agricultural lands, grasslands, desert and tundra each play a more limited role as globally significant carbon dioxide sources or sinks at present. This new information can help pinpoint where actions to conserve carbon sinks are likely to have most impact.1

Coincidentally, at approximately the same time as Bolsonaro won election (October 28th) to the presidency a group of UK scientists issued a Declaration of Rebellion (October 31st ) against the UK government for criminal inaction in the face of climate change catastrophe and ecological collapse. Thus, proving that eco turmoil reigns supreme all across the planet, as destructionists versus protectionists factions accelerate on both ends of the biosphere spectrum.

Meanwhile and in consideration of the aforementioned, Bolsonaros assault on rainforests is a declaration of war against all of humanity. Informed sources claim Bolsonaros deforestation of Amazonia will exceed 3xs current levels of obliteration. Thats impending disaster for global warming and a huge threat to ecosystems and life everywhere.

Bolsonaros war plan is exhaustive: (1) expand agriculture into indigenous lands (2) build Amazonia highways  (3) infrastructure projects and (4) major mines, as Amazonia transforms into a commodity for export. But, that particular export is much more than a commodity; it is the life support system for the entire planet. Yes, once again with screaming passion: Its the life support system for the entire planet! One more time....

Training Kids to Kill at Ukrainian Nationalist Camp Truthdig RSS

KIEV, Ukraine The campers, some clad in combat fatigues, carefully aim their assault rifles. Their instructor offers advice: Dont think of your target as a human being.

So when these boys and girls shoot, they will shoot to kill.

Most are in their teens, but some are as young as 8 years old. They are at a summer camp created by one of Ukraines radical nationalist groups, hidden in a forest in the west of the country, that was visited by The Associated Press. The camp has two purposes: to train children to defend their country from Russians and their sympathizers and to spread nationalist ideology.

We never aim guns at people, instructor Yuri Chornota Cherkashin tells them. But we dont count separatists, little green men, occupiers from Moscow, as people. So we can and should aim at them.

The nationalists have been accused of violence and racism, but they have played a central, volunteer role in Ukraines conflict with Russia and they have maintained links with the government. Earlier this year, the Ministry of Youth and Sports earmarked 4 million hryvnias (about $150,000) to fund some of the youth camps among the dozens built by the nationalists. The purpose, according to the ministry, is national patriotic education.

Ministry spokeswoman Natalia Vernigora said the money is distributed by a panel which looks for signs of xenophobia and discrimination, it doesnt analyze activities of specific groups.

Cherkashin is a veteran of the fight against pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine; he was wounded in combat and later came to lead Sokil, or Falcon, the youth wing of the Svoboda party. It is important, he says, to inculcate the nations youth with nationalist thought, so they can battle Vladimir Putins Russia as well as challenges that could completely destroy European civilization.

Among those challenges: LGBT rights, which lecturers denounce as a sign of Western decadence.

You need to be aware of all that, said instructor Ruslan Andreiko. All those gender things, all those perversions of modern Bolsheviks who have come to power in Europe and now try to make all those LGBT things like gay pride parades part of the education system.

While some youths dozed off during lectures, others paid attention. Clearly, some were receptive.

During a break in training, a teenager played a nationalist march on his guitar. It was decorated with a sticker showing white bombs hitting a mosque, under the motto, White Europe is Our Goal.

Aside from the lectures and songs around the campfire life for the several dozen youths at the Svoboda camp was hard.

Campers were awakened in the middle of the night with a blast from a stun grenade. Stumbling out of their tents, soldiers in training struggled to hold AK-47s that were, in some cases, almost as tall as they were. They were required to carry the heavy rifles all day, and one of the girls broke dow...

Scientists: Wind, Drought Worsen Fires, Not Bad Management Truthdig RSS

WASHINGTON Both nature and humans share blame for Californias devastating wildfires, but forest management did not play a major role, despite President Donald Trumps claims, fire scientists say.

Nature provides the dangerous winds that have whipped the fires, and human-caused climate change over the long haul is killing and drying the shrubs and trees that provide the fuel, experts say.

Natural factors and human-caused global warming effects fatally collude in these fires, said wildfire expert Kristen Thornicke of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany.

Multiple reasons explain the fires severity, but forest management wasnt one of them, University of Utah fire scientist Philip Dennison said.

Trump tweeted on Saturday: There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests.

The death toll from the wildfire that incinerated the town of Northern California town of Paradise and surrounding areas climbed to 29, matching the mark for the deadliest single blaze in California history. Statewide, the number of fire dead stood at 31, including two victims in Southern California.

In those earlier fires, Paradise was threatened but escaped major damage, he said. In the current blazes, it was virtually destroyed.

The other major fire, in Southern California, burned through shrub land, not forest, Dennison said.

Its not about forest management. These arent forests, he said.

The dean of the University of Michigans environmental school, Jonathan Overpeck, said Western fires are getting bigger and more severe. He said it is much less due to bad management and is instead the result of our baking of our forests, woodlands and grasslands with ever-worsening climate change.

Wildfires have become more devastating because of the extreme weather swings from global warming, fire scientists said. The average number of U.S. acres burned by wildfires has doubled over the level from 30 years ago.

P.S. About Ram-Bubba.... and My Position Regarding Manna Trust



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

I made a joke and said, "Ramses was my Uncle. We used to call him "Ram-Bubba" behind his back."

My point is to shed light on the ridiculousness of claiming to be heirs to ancient trusts that are--purportedly-- thousands of years old, and claiming to be heirs of Ramses and heirs of Montezuma and and heirs of Big King Put and Tut.

The actual history is written in stone in Ten Mile Canyon, if anyone can still read it and needs to know. But it doesn't matter.

Because life goes on. People die, possessions are recycled, new generations take over and make their mistakes and their good decisions, too.

What we are left with is the present moment and the fact that some people gained more than others by fraud and deceit, and others gained more than others by hard work and diligence, and still others gained more than others by sheer luck and blessing.

It's not okay to universally hate and rob from rich people on the presumption that they all got what they got by crime and cruelty. Some of them did, but many of them didn't.

Why should the good suffer with the bad?

And what kind of judge would I be to stand here and agree to some kind of mindless pogrom against "the rich" any more than I should stand here and agree with some mindless pogrom against "the poor"?

Securitization is Illegal and Unlawful



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

Securitization is illegal and unlawful. And it has been the backbone of the world economy since 1934. Think about that.

I have pointed out that securitization of a man's Good Name and Estate is completely illegal and unlawful because it is an act of personage and results in enslavement --- both of which are crimes.

And here to discuss the point further is an excerpt from British researchers published in 2010, with more explicit detail of exactly why securitization, or, as the Brits write it, "securitisation" is illegal in the U.S. and throughout most the world:

WHY SECURITISATION IS ILLEGAL UNDER U.S. AND COMMON LAW

Securitisation is illegal under US legislation primarily because it is fraudulent and causes specific violations of R.I.C.O., usury, Antitrust and bankruptcy laws. And it flies in the face of public policy in numerous ways, as is expounded in extensive detail in an analysis to be published in our journal Economic Intelligence Review 2009Q1 (7) with several pages of book, article and case references.

To begin with, securitisation violates US State usury legislation. Secondly, all true-sale, disguised loan as well as assignment securitisations are essentially tax evasion schemes, and the penalties for tax evasion in the United States are excessively severe.

Thirdly, in all true-sale, disguised loan and assignment securitisations, the conflict of...

(Video) California Fire Now Turned into Nuclear Ash! Operation Disclosure



Published on Nov 9, 2018

**Please note that I am aware that it is not the "Camp Fire" that is in Woolsey /Calabasas Fire. Thank you, everyone, who is writing to me to make sure I'm aware of that now. :-) I made this video as soon as I could as the neighborhood next to me was being evacuated and "Camp Fire" was the first to come up. I didn't even know there was a fire in Nor-Cal at the time. I know I also am saying "Nuclear" wrong. lol. I guess I grew up listening to GW Bush say it too many times. THESE THINGS are NOT what is important about this video and for someone whose backyard has THIS fires smoke pouring in it as I'm making this video THESE are the least of my concerns right now. But please know I am aware of it and I will be sure to note them in future videos since some of you care more about THAT then the topic of people being covered in Radioactive Ash without even knowing.

**Also Note: Please do not even try to tell me there is no radioactive danger, EVERYONE in this valley has been aware of the radioactive danger here for years BEFORE the fire. But it was in a 2-mile radius at least. Now it's covering the entire sky, I LIVE HERE WHERE THERE FIRE IS, I'm not someone just watching this on the news. Thanks

Please watch this and share this video its very important people learn about this!

You are reading that correctly, the California Fire Now Nuclear Ash, means that the "Camp Fire" of California near Woolsey, Thousand Oaks, Malibu, Santa Monica, West Hills, has burned up an old Nuclear Test Field. The Santa Susana Field Lab is the name. It is VERY important that you share this video with everyone you know so that we can reach as many people in this area because the News will not dare report this information!

The Death Toll of Californias Historic Wildfire Continues to Climb Truthdig RSS

Truthdig update: The death toll in the Camp Fire in Northern California is now at 42, making the wildfire the deadliest in California history, The Associated Press reported Monday night. The Woolsey Fire in Southern California has killed two.

PARADISE, Calif. The dead were found in burned-out cars, in the smoldering ruins of their homes, or next to their vehicles, apparently overcome by smoke and flames before they could jump in behind the wheel and escape. In some cases, there were only charred fragments of bone, so small that coroners investigators used a wire basket to sift and sort them.

At least 29 people were confirmed dead in the wildfire that turned the Northern California town of Paradise and outlying areas into hell on earth, equaling the deadliest blaze in state history, and the search for bodies continued Monday.

Nearly 230 people were unaccounted for by the sheriffs reckoning, four days after the fire swept over the town of 27,000 and practically wiped it off the map with flames so fierce that they melted metal off cars. The dead were so badly burned that authorities brought in a mobile DNA lab and consulted forensic anthropologists for help in identifying them.

Increasingly exhausted and dispirited, friends and relatives of the missing called hospitals, police, shelters and the coroners office in hopes of learning what became of their loved ones. Paradise was a popular retirement community, and about a quarter of the population was over 65.

Tad Teays awaited word on his 90-year-old dementia-stricken mother, who lived about a mile from him in Paradise. And Barbara Hall tried in vain to find out whether her aunt and the womans husband, who are in their 80s and 90s, made it out of their home in a retirement community in town.

Did they make it in their car? Did they get away? Did their car go over the edge of a mountain somewhere? I just dont know, said Hall, adding that the couple had only a landline and calls were not going through to it.

Megan James, of Newfoundland, Canada, searched via Twitter from the other side of the continent for information about her aunt and uncle, whose house in Paradise burned down and whose vehicles were still there. On Monday, she asked on Twitter for someone to take over the posts, saying she is so emotionally and mentally exhausted.

I need to sleep and cry, James added. Just PRAY. Please.

The blaze was part of an outbreak of wildfires on both ends of the state. Together, they were blamed for 31 deaths, including two in celebrity-studded Malibu in Southern California, where firefighters appeared to be gaining ground against a roughly 143-square-mile (370-square-kilometer) blaze that destroyed at least 370 structures, with hundreds more feared lost.

Some of the thousands of people forced from their homes by the blaze were allowed to return, and authorities reopened U.S. 101, a major freeway through the fire zo...

Bill Gates Warns We Should Seriously Prepare for A Disease That Could Kill 30 Million People in Just 6 Months Awareness Act

If we look back throughout history, we will find that despite our best attempts from generation to generation, we, as a species, have encountered some horrible diseases, epidemics, claiming the lives of millions all around the world. While there are steps that we can take to protect ourselves, we will never know when another epidemic is just around the corner.

Take, for example, the plague that was Polio, an infectious disease that peaked in the United States in 1952, at which point 57,628 cases were reported throughout the nation. The disease works by infecting an individuals brain and spinal cord, bringing about feelings of pins and needles, which can then lead to paralysis and, in the more severe cases death. Adding to the horror that this disease spreads, post-polio syndrome refers to a condition in which new muscle pain, weakness or even paralysis can develop 15 to 40 years after is it believed that the original infection has been beaten. Luckily for those of us living in the United States today, modern vaccines have all but eliminated any transmission of the disease.

However, many experts are now worried about the next epidemic that will strike, and just what it will mean for our global population. In fact, they warn that we are overdue for one to strike.

It is a concern that has been identified by the World Health Organization (WHO), who refer to it as Disease X. The WHO advises that Disease X represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease.  For this reason, Disease X was included in the 2018 R&D Blueprint, a published plan outlining how to prepare for health emergencies by accelerating both research and development.

Just last April, in a discussion hosted by the Massachusetts Medical Society and the New England Journal of Medicine, Bill Gates shared his concerns regarding the risk of such an epidemic coming in the next decade and his fear that we, as a society, are far from being prepared.

He compared the current level of preparation to that of war and violent attacks. Right now, he explained, if you were to approach any major government around the globe and tell them that someone had developed a weapon capable of killing 30 million people it would be met with a sense of urgency. In the case of biological threats, that sense of urgency is lacking, Gates stated. The world needs to prepare for pandemics in the same serious way it prepares for war.

As Jupiter Enters Into Sagittarius, Prepare for a Time of Growth Awareness Act

Jupiter finally made its way into Sagittarius on November the 8th. This most likely caused a shift in the way you felt and has you quite stirred up at the moment.

During this time, you are going to be experiencing a lot of change and growth. You will finally be free to express yourself. Jupiter for those who might not know, is a very powerful planet that opens both our minds and our hearts. It allows us to take a peek at this place we call home from a different perspective and when partnered with Sagittarius, brings forth greater understanding.

You are going to become more accepting and work to embrace your own differences as well as the differences of others. Jupiter comes home when he enters Sagittarius and the two work very well together. You will be completely unable to sit still, as there will be a lot going on during this time. In some cases, you may feel overwhelmed.

Tarot.com wrote as follows in regards to this whole ordeal:

Sagittarius is represented by the Archer, who aims his arrow high and far. With Jupiter in Sagittarius, we are encouraged to connect with our own dreams and futures and realize what we can do in the present moment that will help us reach our ultimate goals. There is a risk, however, of aiming so high that we establish goals that are, in fact, out of reach. DO dream big even bigger than usual but remember that if you want your dreams to come true, you cant ignore the realistic steps youll need to take to attain them.

Still, during Jupiters transit through Sagittarius, the journey is more important than the ultimate destination. Its a great feeling to accomplish what we set out to do, but its the experience that teaches us. Even if we never actually reach our goal, we will learn invaluable lessons along the way.

Theres an extra emphasis on expanding our minds through the exploration of not only new places, but new concepts learning about different philosophies, religions, and cultures helps us better understand our own place in the world. We are searching for ultimate truths during Jupiter in Sagittarius, but we must be careful that this doesnt backfire. We can become so addicted to being right that it can lead to prejudice and judgment. Were being invited to understand other points of view, not to become so entrenched in our own religious and political viewpoints that all others become wrong or invalid. The more self-righteous we feel, the more we limit ourselves which is the exact opposite of the growth and open-mindedness that Jupiter in Sagittarius is meant to bring to our lives.

Russia Plans a Moon Base Staffed by Avatars

Lets face it. Forget Musk, Bezos, Branson and the rest of the billionaires trying to become private space entrepreneurs NASA would be in big trouble without the old-but-reliable-even-with-its-problems Russian space program Roscosmos. But dont let those dented and shopworn Soyuz capsules fool you Roscosmos is eyeing the future and may beat the U.S. to the Moon the next time around not by man, but by avatar.

This is about creating a long-term base, naturally, not habitable, but visited. But basically it is the transition to robotic systems, to avatars that will solve tasks on the surface of the moon.

Dmitry Rogozin, Director General of Roscosmos, revealed his futuristic-yet-feasible plans this week through the state-run news agency RIA Novosti. He likened them to NASAs vision and subsequent success in the 1960s and 1970s to put the first human on the Moon, with a dig that his is more ambitious and responsible. Responsible is easier to achieve from Day 1 avatars do not create waste that must be either stored for transport or disposed of in a way that doesnt sully the environment.



While what happens on the lunar surface may be ambitious, getting there will still rely on the current Angara carrier rocket and Soyuz spacecraft, allowing Russias efforts for new development to focus solely on the robotic work and exploration forces that will ride them to the Moon. That includes heavy use of 3D printing to lessen the load sent with them, including the possible use of lunar soil as a raw material for the 3D printers.

Plus, there will be an opportunity, as they say at the Academy of Sciences, to use helium-3 as the basis for rocket fuel.

ON BECOMING FREE WHAT ARE WE REALLY FREEING OURSELVES FOR?

I must create a system or be enslaved by another Mans. ~William Blake

Becoming free is creating your own virtuous system despite being outflanked by unvirtuous systems controlled by unvirtuous men. It is cultivating a healthy way of living despite the unhealthy ways of unhealthy men. Its becoming so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion (Albert Camus). Then its building a new model that makes the existing model obsolete (Buckminster Fuller).

But first, we must ask ourselves what we are freeing ourselves for before asking ourselves what we are freeing ourselves from. The answer to that question, what are we freeing ourselves for, will be the foundation of our freedom, the cornerstone of our virtue, the building blocks of a healthier way of being human in the world.

Understand: we must be critical and highly skeptical of any answer that should arise from asking this most vital of questions. For if our answer is deemed invalid/unhealthy by the dictates of universal law (whats healthy and whats not), then it should be discarded as invalid/unhealthy for any humans who are attempting to be virtuous and healthy. Also, every answer should remain flexible and adaptable lest it become stagnant, rigid, dogmatic, tyrannical, or stuck in its ways.

A virtuous system follows the Golden Rule and the Nonaggression Principle:

In the wake of the sending of bomb-like devices of uncertain capability to prominent critics of US President Donald Trump and of a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue (both Trumps fault, of course) plus a migrant invasion approaching the US through Mexico there have been widespread calls for toning down harsh and divisive political rhetoric.

Of course given the nature of the American media and other establishment voices, these demands predictably have been aimed almost entirely against Trump and his Deplorable supporters, almost never against the same establishment that unceasingly vilifies Trump and Middle American radicals as literally Hitler, all backed up by the evil White-Nationalist-in-Chief, Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Those appealing for more civility and a return to polite discourse can save their breath. Its much, much too late for that.

When Trump calls the establishment media the enemies of the people, thats because they together with their passive NPC drones and active Antifa enforcers are enemies, if by the people we mean the historic American nation. Trumps sin is that he calls them out for what they are.

Trump didnt cause todays polarization, he only exacerbates it because he punches back. Good, may he continue to do so. Pining for a more well-mannered time in a country that belongs to another, long-gone era is futile.

The Death of Americas Hyper-Power Fantasy

NOVEMBER 7, 2018

Source: Geopolitics



In 1987, Paul Kennedy, a British professor of history at Yale University, unleashed a political and intellectual firestorm with the publication of his great (677-page) book, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers. Kennedy produced a magisterial overview of the competition for global power over the past 500 years from 1500 AD to the present.

Kennedy proposed the thesis that any power that achieved, imagined it had achieved or sought to achieve and maintain a dominant hyper-power role of global dominance was doomed to lose it and then rapidly decline in overall power, wealth, prosperity and influence.

Kennedy argued with a wealth of detail drawn from different nations over his vast period of half a millennium that the very attempt to achieve and maintain such power forced every nation that attempted it into a ruinous pattern of strategic overstretch.

This demanded every major global empire in their turn to devote ruinously far too many economic resources to unproductive military power and ever more costly global commitments and conflicts.

The more ambitious the commitments, the quicker came military defeat, economic ruin and national collapse, Kennedy documented.

Kennedy published his book however at exactly the wrong moment for its abundantly documented conclusions and arguments to be taken seriously in the United States. The Cold War was just ending. The heroic actions of the Russian people in rejecting communism and leading in the dismantling of the Soviet Union were being misinterpreted as an eternal and lasting victory for the United States and for the forces of free market capitalism and minimum government regulation.

Video: The World War One Conspiracy The Mind Unleashed

What was World War One about? How did it start? Who won? And what did they win? Now, 100 years after those final shots rang out, these questions still puzzle historians and laymen alike. But as we shall see, this confusion is not a happenstance of history but the wool that has been pulled over our eyes to stop us from seeing what WWI really was. This is the story of WWI that you didnt read in the history books. This is The WWI Conspiracy.

TRANSCRIPT

INTRODUCTION

November 11, 1918.

All across the Western front, the clocks that were lucky enough to escape the four years of shelling chimed the eleventh hour. And with that the First World War came to an end.

From 10 oclock to 11 the hour for the cessation of hostilities the opposed batteries simply raised hell. Not even the artillery prelude to our advance into the Argonne had anything on it. To attempt an advance was out of the question. It was not a barrage. It was a deluge.

[. . .]

Nothing quite so electrical in effect as the sudden stop that came at 11 A. M. has ever occurred to me. It was 10:60 precisely and the roar stopped like a motor car hitting a wall. The resulting quiet was uncanny in comparison. From somewhere far below ground, Germans began to appear. They clambered to the parapets and began to shout wildly. They threw their rifles, hats, bandoleers, bayonets and trench knives toward us. They began to sing.

Lieutenant Walter A. Davenport, 101st Infantry Regiment, US Army

And just like that, it was over. Four years of the bloodiest carnage the world had ever seen came to a stop as sudden and bewildering as its start. And the world vowed Never again.

Each year, we lay the wreath. We hear The Last Post. We mouth the words never again like an incantation. But what does it mean? To answer this question, we have to understand what WWIwas.

WWI was an explosion, a breaking point in history. In the smoldering shell hole of that great cataclysm lay the industrial-era optimism of never-ending progress. Old verities about the glory of war lay strewn around the battlefields of that Great War like a fallen soldier left to die in No Mans Land, and along with it lay all the broken dreams of a world order that had been blown apart. Whether we know it or not, we here in the 21st century are still living in the crater of that explosion, the victims of a First World War that we are only now beginning to understand.

The VA Is Stiffing Countless Vets on Their Benefits Truthdig RSS

Im about to lose everything that I own and become homeless. Those are the despairing words of Shelley Roundtree, a 29-year-old veteran of the war in Afghanistan currently living without his stipend guaranteed under the GI Bill. Absent these funds, hes sleeping on his sisters couch, often having to choose between marketing classes at Berkeley College in Manhattan and basic necessities. Many nights, he forces himself to sleep, still hungry.

According to NBC News, Roundtree is one of 82,000 veterans currently waiting on tuition and housing payments from the United States Department of Veteran Affairsthe byproduct of a backlog created by the Forever GI Bill of 2017. That legislation expanded benefits for veterans and their families but has failed to provide the necessary IT support for the department to meet its new requirements. As many as several hundred thousand have seen their payments delayed or not delivered at all.

Between a contract dispute over how new housing allowances would be calculated and the VAs attempts to stress-test an outdated system, the department had delayed informing schools to begin enrolling students in classes. But many universities had waited anyway, believing theyd eventually have to re-enter their students veteran certifying information. The result has been a deluge of enrollments the VA is simply unable to process at once.

This isto be kinda train wreck, Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, tells NBC News. Its really frustrating the amount of money that Congress has appropriated for veterans, and this is the way VA has rolled it out. This discussion started over a year ago.

Scandal has plagued the Department of Veteran Affairs virtually from the moment that Donald Trump was sworn into office. Earlier this year, the president forced the departure of U.S. Secretary of Veteran Affairs David Shulkina rare holdover from the Obama administration. That position is currently held by former Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Robert Wilkie. Trump had originally nominated his personal doctor, Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, but Jackson ultimately withdrew his name from consideration amid a slew of allegations against him, including hostile work practices, drunken behavior and even medical abuse.

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih has denied rumors that Riyadh plans to disband the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), reports Al Arabiya. Saudi Arabia is the most influential member of the oil cartel. Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Saudi Arabia's government had funded a think tank that is set to study the potential impact on oil markets in the event of a break-up of OPEC. The media reported that top Saudi officials called the research a high priority economic policy inquiry. However, it's not going to influence internal government debate on whether to leave OPEC in the near term. The 60-year-old Saudi-led oil monopoly of 15 nations is currently trying to cope with short-term problems, unnamed sources told the media.

Marvel Superhero Creator Stan Lee Dies Truthdig RSS

LOS ANGELES Stan Lee, the creative dynamo who revolutionized the comic book and helped make billions for Hollywood by introducing human frailties in Marvel superheroes such as Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and the Incredible Hulk, died Monday. He was 95.

Lee was declared dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to Kirk Schenck, an attorney for Lees daughter, J.C. Lee.

As the top writer at Marvel Comics and later as its publisher, Lee was widely considered the architect of the contemporary comic book. He revived the industry in the 1960s by offering the costumes and action craved by younger readers while insisting on sophisticated plots, college-level dialogue, satire, science fiction, even philosophy.

Millions responded to the unlikely mix of realistic fantasy, and many of his characters, including Spider-Man, the Hulk and X-Men went on to become stars of blockbuster films.

Recent projects Lee helped make possible range from the films Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy to such TV series as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil. Lee was recognizable to his fans, having had cameos in many Marvel films and TV projects his hair gray, his glasses slightly tinted and often delivering his trademark motto, Excelsior!

Captain America actor Chris Evans mourned the loss on Twitter: There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with adventure, escape, comfort, confidence, inspiration, strength, friendship and joy. He exuded love and kindness and will leave an indelible mark on so, so, so many lives. Excelsior!!

Lee considered the comic-book medium an art form and he was prolific: By some accounts, he came up with a new comic book every day for 10 years. I wrote so many I dont even know. I wrote either hundreds or thousands of them, he told The Associated Press in 2006.

He hit his stride in the 1960s when he brought the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man and numerous others to life. It was like there was something in the air. I couldnt do anything wrong, he said.

His heroes, meanwhile, were a far cry from virtuous do-gooders such as rival DC Comics Superman.

The Fantastic Four fought with each other. Spider-Man was goaded into superhero work by his alter ego, Peter Parker, who suffered from unrequited crushes, money problems and dandruff. The Silver Surfer, an alien doomed to wander Earths atmosphere, waxed about the woeful nature of man. The Hulk was marked by self-loathing. Daredevil was blind and Iron Man had a weak heart.

- At present there are several competing plans being presented at the highest levels of world power

=> plans by who? How can they even know & contact to the highest level of Earth world power?

Have any online platform of that Earth world power?

- The problem of Earth is humanity mind-set not money, so I highly recommend do not release GESARA, NESRA and Global Currency Reset at the moment, it only bring more chaos.

- About future planning agencies

Sound great, but why only 2? Why not 8?

Australia, South America, North America, Africa, CIS, Europe, Asia, Arab Middle East.

The HQ locations I suggest a quite place, do not have history Earthquake, Tsunami and more importantly must be ready to work in a case of Mega Natural Catastrophe happen like some prophecies in many religions & books.

- Fighting to subdue the remaining Khazarian satanists continues in the U.S., the EU, Israel, and Japan.

When the battle end? Do not tell that you do not have the extract date, it seem you guys fight more than 12 months already.

Do fighting stop the root problems? No, only giving out working real life solution and policy.

Donald Trump Beatles parody song Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 12 November 2018 musical parody of the Beatles song Rain from Britain says about itself:

The Tweetles Rain

What does Donald Trump do when the rain comes? The answer lies in this new song from his Beatles tribute band, The Tweetles.

LYRICS:

When the rain comes
I run and hide my hair
Im not going out there
When the rain comes
When the rain comes

When it drizzles
I wont go see Paris
Ill just get room service
When it drizzles
When it drizzles

Rain, kiss my ass!
Sad! The weathers bad

Im not going if theres no big parade
Ill stay and flirt with the maid
Im not going
You cant make me
Ive got some stuff I need to tweet anyway

Rain, kiss my ass!
Sad! The weathers bad

Go tell Macron were not friends any more
You know what, this means war!
Can we nuke France?
Can we nuke France?

TRUMP: FORGET OVERSEAS MILITARY VOTES Two days after skipping a visit to an American military cemetery near Paris because it was raining, Trump called for effectively disenfranchising overseas military members voting in Florida, raising further questions about the draft-evading presidents real commitment to the armed services.

Fox News Twitter accounts stop posting after protest against presenter Tucker Carlson CLG News

Fox News Twitter accounts stop posting after protest against presenter Tucker Carlson | 12 Nov 2018 | Fox News has completely stopped posting on Twitter, apparently because of a disagreement with the company. The station's usually prolific account, which has nearly 20 million followers, hasn't tweeted in days. The station has not offered a public explanation of the blackout but numerous reports suggested it was the consequence of a falling out between Fox News and Twitter. The outage came shortly after protestors went to presenter Tucker Carlson's house, after posting his address online -- which the network appears to believe was taken down too slowly.

House Democrats Plan to Restore Voting Rights, Ethics Laws Truthdig RSS

In 2013, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in Shelby County v. Holder that Southern states with the most prevalent history of voter suppression no longer had to clear changes to voting rights laws with the federal government because our country has changed.

Todays suspiciously missing and malfunctioning voting machines in Georgia, voter ID laws in Texas and North Carolina, and the thousands of voters purged from the rolls in Florida, however, suggest that perhaps the country has not changed. And now that Democrats have won a majority of House seats, their first goal is to restore rights that were gutted five years ago.

NPR reported Monday that House Democratic leaders say their first priorities in January are to [r]emove obstacles to voting, close loopholes in government ethics law and reduce the influence of political money.

These goals, combined in their first bill, H.R. 1, are Three very basic things that I think the public wants to see, Maryland Rep. John Sarbanes told NPR.

H.R. 1 would establish automatic voter registration, and restore the parts of the Voting Rights Act that Shelby County v. Holder eliminated five years ago. It would strive to overturn the Citizens United decision, which lifted caps on corporate spending for elections and took away redistricting power from state governments in favor of independent commissions.

The bill would also close a loophole in government ethics law that allows presidents to sidestep bans against conflicts of interest, and require that presidential candidates make their tax returns public.

The latter two actions have been previously accepted as norms of American government and elections, but were not previously codified into law.

Sarbanes admitted to NPR that a vote on this bill would be a small first step, given that Republicans, who hold a majority in the Senate, are unlikely to pass it, and that President Trumpthe target of the tax return and ethics loophole closureis unlikely to sign it. Sarbanes is looking toward establishing goals for 2020, saying, Give us the gavel in the Senate in 2020 and well pass it in the Senate. Give us a pen in the Oval Office and well sign those kinds of reforms into law.

Unsurprisingly, Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc...

Republic of Khakassia: Communist party candidate elected Signs of the Times

In classic Soviet style, a Communist party candidate was elected head of the Republic of Khakassia after running with no other candidates on the ballot. The candidate defeated the incumbent from United Russia in round one. During runoff elections for the head of the Siberian Republic of Khakassia, voters were asked to mark if they were for or against Communist Party candidate Valentin Konovalov, the only one on the ballot. After votes were tallied on Sunday, the Central Election Commission declared Konovalov the winner with 57.5 percent of the vote. Despite being the sole candidate, Konovalov needed to receive at least 50 percent of voters' support to be named the winner. 41.1 percent of participants voted against the 30-year-old politician. The vote went on without serious violations and there were no grounds to declare it invalid, the electoral body reported. "We came up with a constructive program.

Israeli military kills Hamas commander in Gaza Strip assault Signs of the Times

Palestinian officials said Sunday that Israeli security forces in a moving vehicle attacked a group of Hamas pedestrians, Reuters reported. According to Reuters, local witnesses said that Israeli jets had fired over 20 projectiles in the area where the skirmish took place. An official IDF statement claimed that "during IDF operational activity in the Gaza Strip, an exchange of fire evolved." Palestinian officials, however, claim that a Hamas commander was killed during the Israeli assault. According to AFP, the clash occurred east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip. Further details were not immediately available. Gaza health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said six Palestinians were killed. One of the dead was a local commander for Hamas's armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades. Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said all Israeli soldiers involved had returned to Israel.

Market Talk- November 11, 2018 Armstrong Economics

A mixed session in Asia with most players watching the oil price decline which tended to unnerve many markets. The Shanghai index climbed from early negative prices to manage a 1%+ close for the day. The talk remains centered on trade and the negotiations both are expected to have at the G20 later this month. The Yuan traded in a narrow range but still looks to be flirting with the 7 handles which could well start the ball rolling. The Nikkei also reflected the currency which remains around the 114 handles even as stocks wobble. However, much of todays moves were from European time zone onwards, so lets just jump ahead to that.

Europe opened with concerns over BREXIT and all the friction it appears Theresa May is facing over the weekend press of the Johnson family. The talk was that the PM had arranged domestic emergency BREXIT meetings, which were canceled when they became not too public. The Italian treasury office appears to be playing hardball with the EU as we heard comments hit the wires today that they wish to stick diligently to their plan. Again, the market is awash with rumors of Italian debt burden for some of its key banks, talk is in-excess of 400bnBoth of these headlines are concerning for Europe and the Euro reflected that in todays price. The Euro almost broke into the 1.11 handle following on from these earlier headlines, all of which pushed the US Dollar to its 16 month high (97.60). Sterling lost a lot of its strength ahead of the weekend and probably benefited from some of the Euro selling. However, things do not look that comfortable for either of these two currencies which helps support the bid for the Dollar. Again, it is still worth keeping an eye on the Yen as even with the equity weakness the safe-haven bid appears absent.

Concerns over a slowing global economy, a re-pricing on Apple and ongoing US / China trade worries pushed US stocks lower again even though the bid was there for the currency. There were also rumors of auto tariffs which hit the car makers, but the recent re-pricing of the FANGs is where a lot of the money looks to be flooding from and at a time when stability is required. Asia will be an interesting region for the next few weeks as the lack o...

Bear and fox demand food payment from passing tourists Signs of the Times

A video showing a bear demanding and getting treats from a passing car has gone viral in Russia. The story behind it is both more interesting than expected, and really sad. The video shows a brown bear getting a few cookies from the driver of a car in Russia's Far East. It was published last week by Vladimir Lirkin on his Instagram page. Some commenters found it quite cute, while others were outraged - it's actually a bad idea to teach a bear that humans can be a source of food. After the video went viral, Lirkin, who lives on Sakhalin Island, explained to a regional news agency that the bear is part of an animal duo - the other half being a fox - who have been imposing a food toll on the road since at least the start of summer. The road is located on the smaller Iturup Island, one of the Kuril chain, and leads to a hot spring that is popular among tourists.

Recently declassified documents show that the former CIA director and former director of national intelligence approved illegal spying on Congress and then classified their crime. They need to face punishment. Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, the longtime chairman of the Judiciary Committee, made a dramatic announcement Nov. 1 that should lead to jail time for both former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. As reported, but widely overlooked amid the media focus on the midterm elections, Brennan ordered CIA hackers to intercept the emails of all potential or possible intelligence community whistleblowers who may have been trying to contact the congressional oversight committees, specifically to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee. Hacking the Senate's computer system constitutes illegal use of a government computer, illegal espionage and wire fraud.

French student indicted for beating and attempting to strangle his math teacher Signs of the Times

Just as France calmed down after the case of a student threatening a teacher with a 'gun' in class went viral, another scandal has hit the suburbs of Paris after a student beat and attempted to strangle his teacher at a school. The violent incident took place at a vocational high school in the Bezons commune earlier in November, when a 16-year-old attacked his math professor after he told him to leave the class. Instead of leaving, the teen hit the teacher's nose with his palm and "grabbed his neck to strangle him," a source familiar with the case told AFP. Other students intervened to separate them and control their classmate. The teacher was rushed to a local emergency room with minor injuries to the neck. The teen was indicted for "aggravated violence" on Sunday, according to the local prosecutor's office. He has been placed "under judicial control" and is banned from attending the school or approaching the victim.

Prisoners Fighting California Fires Make Less Than $2 an Hour Truthdig RSS

The nearly 4,000 incarcerated workers who are trained to fight deadly fires across California often make less than $2 an hour and are not eligible to be hired as professional firefighters after they are released from prison. The work is physically strenuous and, in some cases, fatal, and as forest fires ravage California the state has become increasingly reliant on the program as a cost-saving measure.

In August, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation tweeted that 2,000 incarcerated people, including 58 youth offenders, were working to fight fires. Bill Sessa, an information officer at the department, said that all of the juvenile offenders [used to fight fires] have committed serious or violent felonies. Adult incarcerated firefighters are often low-level, nonviolent offenders.

The incarcerated firefighters often carry out the grueling task of cutting firelines, using tools like chainsaws, axes and hoes to create a path of exposed soil to block fires.

The work is extremely dangerous. Shawna Lynn Jones, 22, died after she was injured fighting a fire in Malibu in 2016. A large stone fell about 100 feet and hit her head, knocking her unconscious. At the time of her death, she had less than two months left on her prison sentence.

According to The New York Times, incarcerated firefighters make $1 an hour while fighting a fire and up to $2.56 a day at the conservation camps where workers live. That is lavish pay by prison standards, Sessa said. Some program participants also are able to earn time off their prison sentences. The corrections department estimates that the conservation camps save state taxpayers about $100 million a year.

In 2014, lawyers for then-state Attorney General Kamala Harris argued that extending 2-for-1 credits to all minimum custody inmates at this time would severely impact fire camp participationa dangerous outcome while California is in the middle of a difficult fire season and severe drought. Harris said she first read about the court filing in the newspaper and that she was very troubled.

Choosing Journalism over Cheerleading War: An Interview with RT Americas Anya Parampil MintPress News

WASHINGTON When Anya Parampil was attending George Washington University and saw her peers trickle into the universitys well-entrenched State Department pipeline, she knew that the path most commonly walked by her peers wasnt for her.

Eventually, life led her away from a career in international diplomacy toward one in journalism, but not your average corporate-outlet journalism. Parampil did not want to toe the official line with her reporting; she wanted to use journalism to question our ruling class and expose its abuses, she told MintPress in an exclusive interview.

She soon found herself working first as intern, then as a reporter and a producer at RT America, a network that often gives voice to under-reported and alternative perspectives on important international and domestic issues, providing as Parampil notes a valuable service to Americans who have been deprived of critical history and context on existential issues of war and peace.

RT Americas reputation as an outlet that challenges government and mainstream narratives has resulted in the vilification of RT America by the U.S. corporate press, as those more traditional outlets rarely support the type of reporting that holds the powerful accountable. Indeed, as Parampil told MintPress, as soon as I started looking closely at the inner workings of American foreign policy, I was forced to conclude my approach to producing and consuming news would never be welcome in the mainstream press.

The attacks on RT have been amplified by worsening U.S.-Russian relations and by the U.S. power structures broader effort to silent alternative and independent media. As a result, Parampil fears that RT America is one of the ultimate targets of the campaign to remove dissenting media from platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

In September, RT America debuted its first original daytime news program, In Question, with Parampil as its host. The program which airs at 12 p.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. ET on RT Americas network has sought to cover under-reported stories from within the United States and around the world in areas like politics and international affairs. as well as developments in science and technology. The programs approach fulfills Parampils ambition to use journalism as a check on the powerful rather than for their exclusive benefit.

Noam Chomsky Warns of the Rise of Judeo-Nazi Tendencies in Israel MintPress News

Prominent Jewish intellectual Noam Chomsky has raised concerns over what he believes is the rise of Judeo-Nazi tendencies in Israel. Speaking to i24NEWS last week, the renowned political dissident, linguist and scholar repeated warnings given by Yeshayahu Leibowitz, an Israeli public intellectual, biochemist and polymath, concerning the dehumanizing effect of Israels brutal occupation of Palestine on the victims and the oppressors.

Chomsky commented on remarks by Leibowitz who was nominated for the Israel Prize saying that Leibowitz warned that if the occupation continues, Israeli Jews are going to turn into what he called, Judeo-Nazis. Chomsky recognized the description was a strong term and that most people wouldnt be able to get away with describing Israel in this manner but explained that Leibowitzs status meant that he was able to speak about Israel without incurring fury.

Leibowitz who passed away in 1994 in Jerusalem, cautioned that the state of Israel and Zionism had become more sacred than Jewish humanist values and controversially went on to describe Israeli conduct in occupied Palestinian territories as Judeo-Nazi in nature.

Outraged by Israels killing of 60 villagers of Qibya in 1953, most of whom were women and children by the notorious Israeli commando Unit 101, known for its brutality and retribution campaigns, Leibowitz has been quoted as saying:

We have to ask ourselves where this youth of ours emerged from; young people who had no mental inhibitions about committing this atrocity? What inner motivation for such acts could have been at work here? This youth is not a mob but the product of Zionist, humanist social education.

Echoing Leibowitz, Echoing Leibowitz, Chomsky said: If you have your jackboot on somebodys neck, you have to find a way to justify it. Repeating Leibowitzs warning he added that blaming the victim was a direct reflection of the continued occupation, the humiliation of people, the degradation, and the terrorist attacks by the Israeli government.

The former MIT linguist said that being critical of the occupation in Israel today means being labeled a traitor, a phenomenon which has caused the left to virtually disappear from the political spectrum. He pointed to opposition to the situation in the Gaza Strip, which he likened to a concentration camp, as an example of the delegitimization of the left.

Take Gaza. If you are going to place two million people in a concentration camp, which is in effect what it is, and put them under a vicious siege, you have to ask yourself; am I justified in doing this? People who try to oppose it are traitors, Arab lovers and so on. You have seen this phenomenon in Eu...

Fox News goes Twitter silent to protest the platform's response to Tucker Carlson threats Signs of the Times

The official Fox News account on Twitter has been silent for days, reportedly in protest at the platform's slow response to content which the network says put host Tucker Carlson's family in danger last week. The most recent post on the account is dated last Thursday, November 8 - the day after activists from the radical left-wing Antifa movement showed up at Carlson's Washington, DC home calling the host a "racist scumbag" and chanting that "we know where you sleep at night." Comment: Antifa surround home of Tucker Carlson, calling him 'racist scumbag' and threaten him - 'We know where you live' Fox News has chosen to stay silent on the platform because it objects to the way Twitter has handled posts targeting Carlson, "specifically the ones that included his address," according to Tribune Media content manager Scott Gustin.

The "two state solution" is the sanctification of Israeli apartheid Signs of the Times

I expect you are all familiar with the maps showing the radical shrinking of Palestinian land over 70 years due to the expansion of colonial Israeli settlement. Startling and appalling, yes, but to me they bring back strong memories of other maps, in a precisely analogous situation, which goes to the heart of why Israel is an apartheid state. The original apartheid state of South Africa created "homelands", known colloquially as "bantustans", and proposed that, as the apotheosis of apartheid, these "homelands" would become independent states and house the majority black population of the country in fenced-off areas which had been too arid, rocky or commercial mineral free to attract significant white settlement over three centuries of theft. South Africa actually did recognise some of these as Independent states, while the rest were supposed to be on a course to recognition.

Desperate to bash Trump: Former diplomats fall for fake North Korean Twitter account Signs of the Times

Obama-era UN envoy Samantha Power and former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul have been caught falling for a parody of North Korea's official Twitter account, retweeting its praise of Kim Jong-un to spite the US President. It's a reasonable expectation that two experienced diplomats would be able to tell parody from news, but politicians never fail to surprise: Power and McFaul were apparently a little too eager to unload on Donald Trump to double-check if the @DPRK_News account they retweeted was actually real. As Twitter users from all over were sneering at Trump's refusal to attend a ceremony commemorating US Marines in France due to light rain, "DRPK News Service" published a tweet which read: "Supreme Leader Kim John-Un does not fear rain."

Filming in the Most Depressing City on Earth: Jakarta Dissident Voice

It stinks, it is the most polluted city on earth, but that is not the most terrible thing about it.

You can drive for ten or even twenty kilometers through it, and see only ugliness, fences and broken pavements. But there are many miserable cities on this planet, and I have worked in almost all of them, in 160 countries.

So why is Jakarta killing me?  Why am I overwhelmed by depression whenever I decide to film here, or to write about the state in which its citizens are forced to live? Why, really, do I feel so desperate, so hopeless?

I am tough. I hardly succumb to depression even in such places like the war-torn Afghanistan, Iraq, or in the middle of the toughest slums of Africa.

So, what is it, really, about Jakarta?

Here, I often speak about immorality, but again, what do I mean by this term? I am not a moralist, far from it. I have no religion, and I very rarely pass moral judgments, unless something truly outrageous unveils in front of my eyes.

So why, as so many others, do I land in this city in good spirits, and leave one or two weeks sick, broken, literally shitting my pants, full of wrath, despair?

Why? The Western mass media and local servile sheets are constantly bombarding the world, describing Jakarta as a sprawling metropolis, or to use the terminology of the Australian National University, as a normal city.

But it is not. In fact, it is the most immoral place on earth that I know. It is one enormous monument to fascism, intellectual collapse, Western neo-colonialism and turbo-capitalism.

This time, right here, I will explain, briefly and determinately, why!

*****

You can actually avoid feeling this way, if you decide to land in Jakarta, work for a week or two surrounded by local elites (usually shameless thugs), sail through life here with half-closed eyes. Or if you get paid well not to see. You can also be a Western journo who lives in one of high-rise condominiums, gets himself local bimbo for a girlfriend, and collects his news from official briefings and press conferences.

Such foreign visitors are warmly welcomed in Jakarta, and they get incorporated into the life of local tsars, of feudal cream, of bandits who double as business people or politicians.

It is not so difficult! You land at that lavish Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (half of things do not work here, already, or yet, but the terminal does look lavish), you can take a luxury limo to one of so many 5-star hotels, have meetings at a steel-and-glass office tower, dine in a posh mall where nobody shops (a money laundering concept), but where those with unlimited budgets, often dine. After all this you can leave thinking that Jakarta is just cool bit shallow, too loud and too vulgar but a kind of cool city.

And you can, if you choose to never learn that about 90% of its citizens...

Media Ignores the Plight of Kirill Vyshinsky: A Russian Journalist Imprisoned Without Trial in Ukraine MintPress News

The case of Russian-Ukranian journalist, Kirill Vyshinsky, imprisoned without fair trail in Ukraine since mid-May is yet another in a long list of attacks on journalists by NATO-aligned countries that never make the headlines.

petition for Vyshinskys release reads:

On May 15, 2018, the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) carried out a massive operation against journalists, having forcefully searched the Ukrainian-based RIA Novostis central office in Kiev, including its correspondents homes, and arrest of its editor-in-chief, Kirill Vyshinsky.

On July 11, the court in Kherson, Ukraine extended Kirills imprisonment by 60 days without bail, and is currently being held captive, as his health is rapidly deteriorating.

As of November 1, the Kherson city court has extended the arrest of Kirill until December 28, without a legitimate trial and without right to bail.

"16 Things Everybody Should Stop Doing In Order To Be Successful" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

"16 Things Everybody Should Stop
 Doing In Order To Be Successful"
by Parker Nash

"Often in life, to be successful it doesnt require doing more. It requires you to stop. To eliminate the waste in your life. In a culture hardwired to do it all, it can be counterintuitive to do less. It goes against everything weve been told to do. Try harder, do more. One man that lived nearly 2,000 years ago learned to implement the subtle art of elimination. By ceasing to do many normal habits and behaviors, he was able to overcome enormous challenges.

Marcus Aurelius, emperor of Rome from 161180 AD, had unprecedented access to all the riches of Rome as emperor but due to his position, he also bore the weight of the entire empire. His entire life was met by hardship and unfathomable situations requiring decisions that would make most men crumble under the pressure.

Loss of loved ones was a constant throughout his life: his parents at a young age, his wife, and even several children at a very young age. Throughout his reign, he witnessed the devastating effects of plagues and famines. War was a constant in his time as emperor, most notably with the Parthian empire to the east and the barbarians to the north. He even had to deal with what we would call a hostile workplace today: a treasonous general, Avidius Cassius, proclaiming himself emperor and trying to overthrow his power.

How did he survive? ...

New film on police brutality in the USA Dear Kitty. Some blog

This 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

The Hate U Give | Official Trailer [HD] | 20th Century FOX

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for whats right.

THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Algee Smith, Sabrina Carpenter, Common and Anthony Mackie.

The Hate U Givedirected by George Tillman, Jr., written by Audrey Wells and based on the 2017 novel of the same title by Angie Thomasaddresses itself to the phenomenon of police brutality and its effect on a young, African-American working class girl and her family.

It is of some significance that a film dealing directly with police violence and issues of social class has been widely released and viewed. Undoubtedly, the interest in such social questions reflects deeper processes occurring in the population. While watching the film, this reviewer noted that the audience was comprised largely of teenagers and young adults.

The film (whose title is drawn from a lyric by rapper Tupac Shakur: The Hate U Give Little Infants Fs Everybody T.H.U.G.L.I.F.E.) begins with a flashback depicting a much younger Starr Carter and her siblings receiving The Talk from her father, Maverick (Russell Hornsby), a former drug dealer who has since chosen the straight and narrow.

'Heinous' crime: Indigenous Canadian women still being forcibly sterilized, claims senator Signs of the Times

A Canadian senator claims that unwilling indigenous women are still getting coerced into being sterilized across Canada. The senator now wants the "heinous" issue investigated nationwide. Sterilization by tubal ligation - a process by which the fallopian tubes are either tied, burned or severed - is not just a shameful relic of Canadian history, Senator Yvonne Boyer claimed, but a process that is still happening across the country today. According to a report published last year, the procedure is frequently carried out on indigenous women in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The report relies only on verbal evidence from women in the Saskatoon region, and was authored by Boyer herself. After being contacted by survivors, Boyer now believes that the practice is far more commonplace than previously believed.

Banks in Iran have started sending letters to their branches, informing them that they will be cut off from the international financial messaging system SWIFT starting Monday. Being cut off from SWIFT makes it difficult for Iran to get paid for exports and to pay for imports.

Last week, the Belgium-based organization announced that it would be suspending some unspecified Iranian banks' access to its messaging system.

Pamela Anderson is not a supporter of the #MeToo movement. In a new interview with Australia's "60 Minutes" on Sunday, the former Playboy model slammed #MeToo, claiming it has gone "too far." "I think this feminism can go too far," Anderson said. "I'm a feminist, but I think that this third wave of feminism is a bore." She added, "I think it paralyzes men, I think this #MeToo movement is a bit too much for me. I'm sorry, I'll probably get killed for saying that."

John Bolton Wins Defender of Israel Award from Zionist Lobby Group that Helped Appoint Him MintPress News

NEW YORK The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) recently awarded U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton the Defender of Israel Award during its annual awards dinner, which took place in New York on Sunday night.

Other awardees included U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell as well as Fox News television host Mark Levin. Both Grenell and Levin are close to Bolton, with the former having served as Boltons spokesman and the latter having worked closely with Bolton at the Department of Justice in the Reagan administration.

Though Bolton has received several awards from the Israel lobby in the past, due to his fervent promotion of Zionism and Israeli government policy, this more recent award is notable, as the ZOA is largely responsible for Boltons appointment as National Security Adviser within the Trump administration.

Indeed, beginning in August 2017, the ZOA under the leadership of its president, Morton Klein led the campaign to remove former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster from his post after railing against McMasters anti-Israel positions, most notably his support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known as the Iran nuclear deal.

However, McMaster had also earned the ire of American Zionists for allegedly referring to Israel as an occupying power and acknowledging the existence of Palestine as Zionists at ZOA and like-minded organizations support a revisionist history of the creation of the Israeli state that asserts that Palestine as a state never existed prior to Israels establishment in 1948.

'Outstanding soldier' was recruiter for British neo-Nazi terrorist group National Action Signs of the Times

An 'outstanding soldier' was at the centre of neo-Nazi terrorists' attempts to recruit inside the British army. Mikko Vehvilainen was jailed for eight years after being convicted for membership of the banned-group National Action. Afghanistan veteran, Royal Anglian Regiment Corporal Mikko Vehvilainen, 34, served as a 'recruiter' for National Action (NA), according to prosecutors. The group had been trying to grow its membership through the targeting of the armed forces. Other NA members had been repeatedly trying to join the army, but were rejected. The court heard how Finnish-born Vehvilainen was connected to three other soldiers, two of which were disciplined internally and remained a part of the forces, while the third was thrown out of the force.

After Years of Repression, Iraqs Climate Threatens New Miseries Truthdig RSS

Iraqs climate stresses are worsening, raising the prospect of a hotter, drier future for a country which has already seen widespread devastation.

Its been invaded and bombed, had a third of its territory taken over by terrorist groups, hundreds of thousands have been killed and much of its infrastructure has been destroyed.

Now Iraq and its 39 million people are facing the hazards of climate change; a prolonged drought and soaring temperatures earlier this year ruined crops. Swathes of land in what was, in ancient times, one of the richest agricultural regions on Earth are drying up and turning into desert.

Iraq is one of the Middle Easts most climate-vulnerable countries.

A recent report by the Expert Working Group on Climate-related Security Risks made up of academics including members of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) paints a stark picture of whats happening in Iraq.

Climate change is currently manifesting itself in prolonged heat waves, erratic precipitation, higher than average temperatures and increased disaster intensity, says the report.

Its authors say that over the past summer Iraq suffered from its worst water shortage crisis for 80 years. They say flows of water in many rivers have decreased by up to 40% over recent decades.

The outlook is grim; the study says that due to climate change, average rainfall across the country is likely to decrease by 9% by mid-century, though the intensity of storms is set to increase. Temperatures in Iraq, which regularly reach more than 40C [104 F] in the summer months, are set to rise further by an average of 2C  [3.6 F] by 2050.

Livelihoods at Risk

Iraq is one of the Middle Easts most climate-vulnerable countries, says the Working Group.

The combination of its hydrological limitations, increasing temperatures and extreme weather events puts pressure on basic resources and undermines livelihood security for Iraqs population.

Oil revenues account for more than 80% of Iraqs gross domestic product (GDP), but a majority of the workforce is involved in agriculture and has been hit hard by the drought and worsening climate conditions.

One of the regions of the country that has suffered most from shifting weather patterns and drought is the marshlands of the south, near the city of Basra.

Unique Community

The marshlands, where the mighty Tigris and Euphrates rivers which flow through Iraq meet and divide into dozens of channels, formerly covered an area of more than 20,000 square kilometres and were once home to up to ha...

"Meditation is old and honorable, so why should I
not sit, every morning of my life, on the hillside,
looking into the shining world?  Because, properly

Can one be passionate about the just, the
ideal, the sublime, and the holy, and yet commit
to no labor in its cause?  I don't think so.

All summations have a beginning, all effect has a

Thought buds toward radiance.  The gospel of

Finnish PM blames Russia for GPS glitches during NATO war games Signs of the Times

Finland's malfunctioning GPS signal was caused by Russia, and not the 50,000 troops, 10,000 combat vehicles and 250 aircraft taking part in massive Scandinavian NATO drills - at least that's what the PM thinks probably happened. Aside from the public pooing, prolific beer-guzzling and frigate-sinking naval mishaps, NATO's Trident Juncture drills - the largest in decades - also suffered from spotty GPS signals. Regrettably, only one of these hiccups could remotely be attributed to Russian deviancy. Right on cue, Finnish Prime Minster Juha Sipila has stated that "it is possible" that Russia was the "disrupting party" (referring to the GPS problems, not the pooping near Norwegian kindergartens). Comment: It's also possible Russia is responsible for literally everything that goes wrong everywhere on the planet. Possible, but not likely.

As The New York Times claims, referring to three sources with knowledge of the matter, Saudi intelligence officials met with a group of businessmen in March 2017 to discuss a $2 billion plan to use private intelligence operatives in a bid to undermine Iran's economy. In the course of the alleged discussion, an aide to Maj. Gen.

Greg Hunter, "Declassify FISA & Indictments Follow" Running 'Cause I Can't Fly

"Declassify FISA & Indictments Follow"
By Greg Hunters USAWatchdog.com 

"Radio host Dr. Dave Janda says Attorney General Jeff Sessions was removed because he did not release declassified FISA documents before the midterm elections that were used to spy on Donald J. Trump. It was a treasonous failed coup attempt to remove a duly elected President, and now justice is about to be served. Dr. Janda explains, I think the first thing you have to start with is declassifying documents, and I believe he is going to do that. I also believe there is a very short time window here. The time window is between now and when the Democrats take control of the House of Representatives. When these documents are declassified, the criminals response, whether Republican or Democrat globalist criminals, they are going to say you are misconstruing these texts between McCabe and Comey that implicated me. You are misconstruing what we had to do with these FISA warrants. You dont have the documentation to support me being involved in this. Its up to the players in the House right now to unleash this stuff. The window is short. If they wait until the House falls into the hands of the globalist Democrats, its going to be declassified and they will be screaming where is the proof, and the Democrats will be twiddling their fingers. They will be working on impeaching the President and wont bother with that stuff. So, they have a timeline, and the indictments dont happen until the declassification occurs.

So, who is going to be indicted first? Janda says, If you start at the top part of the chain, you are going after the Rothchilds, Rockefellers, the Paysour family, Warburgs and Pincus family... thats the top of the chain. I think they will get there, but I think they will take the middle level guys out first. That is the Obamas, the Clintons, the Holders, the Lynches, the Brennans, the Clappers and maybe there is going to be a Ryan in there, too. Maybe McCains name is going to surface again. It...

"Understanding The Global Recession Of 2019
by Charles Hugh Smith

"2019 is shaping up to be the year in which all the policies that worked in the past will no longer work. As we all know, the Global Financial Meltdown / recession of 2008-09 was halted by the coordinated policies of the major central banks, which lowered interest rates to near-zero, bought trillions of dollars of bonds and iffy assets such as mortgage-backed securities, and issued unlimited lines of credit to insolvent banks, i.e. unlimited liquidity.

Central governments which could do so went on a borrowing/spending binge to boost demand in their economies, and pursued other policies designed to bring demand forward, i.e. incentivize households to buy today what they'd planned to buy in the future. This vast flood of low-cost credit and liquidity encouraged corporations to borrow money and use it to buy back their stocks, boosting per-share earnings and sending stocks higher for a decade.

The success of these policies has created a dangerous confidence that they'll work in the next global recession, currently scheduled for 2019. But policies follow the S-Curve of expansion, maturity and decline just like the rest of human endeavor: the next time around, these policies will be doing more of what's failed.

The global economy has changed. Demand has been brought forward for a decade, effectively draining the pool of future demand. Unprecedented asset purchases, low rates of interest and unlimited liquidity have inflated gargantuan credit / asset bubbles around the world, the so-called everything bubble as most asset classes a...

What would Benedict Anderson say about Trump? Duck of Minerva

Ive been watching the current debate over nationalism with some interest. Donald Trump identified himself as a nationalist in the run-up to the mid-term elections. He contrasted this with his foes, for whom he used the problematic term globalist. Many saw this as a concerning move, especially paired with Trumps alarmist rhetoric over a caravan of Central American migrants. It also prompted a response from Frances President Macron, criticizing nationalism as a betrayal of patriotism. This got me thinking of my graduate studies, which involved a good amount of reading on nationalism (intended to help conceptualize religious contention). And it made me go back to one of my favorite books of all time, Benedict Andersons Imagined Communities

Imagined Communities is one of those books that is referenced more often than read. I cant count the number of times Ive seen an article mention Andersons concept of imagined communities in passing without really engaging with it or even seeming to really understand. Anderson argued the nation is a modern concept, an imagined political community..imagined as both inherently limited and sovereign. He argued it emerged from cultural and social developments that undermined the hold of the religious community and dynastic realm over individuals identities. So (a quick aside) no, it is not just an imagined community, it is a particular type of community with a particular conception of its place in time and space.

While many reference this ideapresented in the first few chaptersfew (at least in international relations) grapple with the rest of his book. He discusses how the national idea was transported to different contexts, and the unique form post-colonial nationalism took. And, relevant to the debate over Trumps embrace of the nationalist label, he discusses official nationalism.

Anderson argues that the spread of nationalism in the 1800s threatened dominant European dynastic states. The people developed a consciousness as a people, calling on governments to represent them. As as a result, he says, if

Kaiser Wilhelm II cast himself as No. 1 German, he implicitly conceded he was one among many of the same kind as himself, that he had a representative function, and therefore could, in princi...

Yemen forces cut off Saudi supply line blogfactory

Yemens Ansarullah fighters and allied army units have cut off the main supply route used by invading Saudi Arabian forces between the Aden and Taizz provinces in the impoverished countrys southwest.

Yemens al-Masirah television reported the development on Friday, saying that the pathway had been being used as the main channel by the invaders to procure arms and ammunitions.

Separately, in west-central Yemen, the Yemeni forces recaptured the areas that had been seized by Saudi mercenaries in the Marib Province.

Sources, meanwhile, reported that a Bahraini trooper fighting alongside the Saudi forces had been killed during border clashes between the Yemeni forces and the Saudi military in northwestern Yemen. The soldier has been identified as Issa Abdullah Badr Aid.

Also on Thursday, two Saudi unmanned aerial vehicles went down in the Nihm district of the Sanaa province, similarly located in west-central Yemen, and the Saada province in the countrys extreme northwest.

Yemen has been under Saudi military strikes since late March 2015. The war was launched in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to reinstate Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has stepped down as Yemens president but is now seeking to grab power by force.

The aerial campaign, carried out without any international mandate, has killed about 10,000 people, most of them civilians, according to local Yemeni sources.

Recently, Paris-based relief agency Doctors Without Borders (MSF) announced that it was evacuating its staff from six hospitals in northern Yemen, following a recent Saudi bombing of an MSF-run hospital in Yemen.

The international charity organization said it could not get assurances that its hospitals will not be bombed Saudi Arabia again.

Subsequently, the Saudi-led troops central command expressed deep regret over the MSFs decision and said it was trying to set up urgent meetings with the medical aid group.

Saudi Arabia has several times targeted MSF-run hospitals. The most recent case was carried out on Monday on the Abs Hospital in Yemens Hajjah Province. The airstrike killed at least 19 hospital staff and patients and wounded 24 others.

Pro-government forces close in on rebel-held Yemeni city, killing at least 43 Houthis in ground offensive and air raids. blogfactory

At least 43 Houthis have been killed in Yemens flashpoint city of Hodeidah over the past 24 hours as pro-government forces close in on rebel-held areas in the east of the city.

Medics at a hospital in Hodeidah said on Sunday the Houthi fighters had been killed in overnight ground fighting and air attacks by a Saudi-UAE alliance supporting Yemeni troops.

A source at Hodeidahs military hospital told the AFP news agency that dozens of wounded rebels were transferred to hospitals in the provinces of Sanaa and Ibb, further inland.

Meanwhile, a source at a hospital in the government-held town of Mocha, about 170km south of Hodeidah city, said that nine Yemeni soldiers had been killed in clashes there.

Hodeidah, a large city on Yemens Red Sea coast, is the latest battleground between the Houthis and the Saudi-UAE alliance which has been fighting for control over the country for the past three and a half years.

Since November 3, there have been more than 200 air attacks reported in the city, with the AFP reporting at least 400 dead fighters.

The United Nations has put the civilian death toll at 23 and has said that about 445,000 civilians have been internally displaced.

Victory is coming

On Saturday, Yemeni forces seized Hodeidahs main hospital and an industrial complex as they pressed further into the city.

Today, with Gods help, weve been able to take over Thabit Brothers Industrial complex in the east of the city, said a fighter from the Amalqa (Giants) Brigade, a military unit loyal to the Yemeni government.

In the next hours, well have control of more areas of the city. Victory is coming.

Aid agencies have long warned that fighting in Hodeidah risks escalating the countrys dire humanitarian crisis.

Heavy clashes as Houthis dig in near Hodeidah university blogfactory

Yemen rebels also take up position near biggest hospital, forcing staff and patients to flee.

Yemeni government forces engaged in fierce clashes with Houthi rebels who entrenched themselves near the University of Hodeidah and the Al Rabsa neighbourhood in the south-west of the port city on Sunday.

The Yemeni Joint Resistance forces had imposed a tight cordon around the Houthis, who retreated into the residential areas in the centre of the city, Col Mamoon Al Mahjami, spokesman of the Al Amalikah Brigades, told The National.

The rebels stationed artillery and mortars in populated neighbourhoods and hundreds of snipers on the roofs of buildings near the university, Col Al Mahjami said

Residents in the southern outskirts of the port city said the battle had been raging since early Sunday morning, with huge explosions around of the university as well as in the 7 July neighbourhood in the east of the city.

Aircraft from the Arab Coalition supported the government troops, with Apache helicopters launching several strikes at Houthi fighters near the university and in the eastern areas of the 7 July district and the Al Khamseen Street area in the north-east of the city.

The residents said four civilians were injured in the fighting, three of them children.

The Houthi militia has been shelling the southern areas of the city randomly with mortars and with rockets which has spread fear and anxiety among the residents who havent fled the city and those who have been prevented from leaving the city centre by the Houthis to use them as human shields, a resident who asked not to be named told The National.

The resident said many people in Hodeidah who had co-operated with the Iran-backed rebels now wanted to defect to the government side. However, they feared reprisals because some activists in areas of Hodeidah that were already liberated had been threatening collaborators on social media, forcing those who wanted to defect to keep fighting for the Houthis.

The Houthi fighters had also taken up positions near Al Thawra hospital, the citys biggest, staff there told Reuters.

Sources at the hospital said several staff members and patients able to move had fled the complex. It was not clear how many patients remained inside.

The Houthis are reinforcing their positions near the hospital and that is what scared people, a staff member said.

Hospital spokesman Khaled Attiyah told Reuters that doctors and nurses continued their work in departments such as intensive care, the burns ward and the emergency room despite the panic.

We hear loud shelling and they are using all kinds of weapons, it is terrifying, said resident Abdullah Mohammed. In the eastern su...

Battle for Hodeidah: 110 Houthis, 7 civilians killed in 24 hours blogfactory

Pro-government forces close in on port city, killing at least 110 Houthis nearly a month ahead of planned peace talks.

At least 149 Yemenis, including seven civilians, have been killed in the past 24 hours as forces loyal to exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi close in on areas held by Houthi rebels in the strategic port city of Hodeidah.

Medics in hospitals across the city which is the main gateway for imports and relief supplies into Yemen said on Monday that 110 Houthi fighters and 32 pro-government soldiers had been killed in overnight fighting.

Sources at the Al-Alfi military hospital, seized by the Houthis during their 2014 takeover of the city, said charred body parts had been delivered there overnight.

Meanwhile, a military official in Hodeidah told the AFP news agency that seven civilians had died in clashes without giving further details.

Banks in Iran have started sending letters to their branches, informing them that they will be cut off from the international financial messaging system SWIFT starting Monday. Being cut off from SWIFT makes it difficult for Iran to get paid for exports and to pay for imports. SWIFT's chief executive Gottfried Leibbrandt had earlier confirmed the messaging service will start disconnecting some Iranian banks. Last week, the Belgium-based organization announced that it would be suspending some unspecified Iranian banks' access to its messaging system.

Rohingya refugees flee Bangladesh camps over repatriation fears blogfactory

Dozens of persecuted Rohingya Muslim families on a list of refugees set to be repatriated to Myanmar later this week have fled from camps in southeast Bangladesh.

Most of the people on the list have fled to avoid being repatriated, Reuters quoted Abdus Salam, a Rohingya leader at the Jamtoli camp, some 40 kilometers southeast of Coxs Bazar in Bangladesh, as saying on Monday.

He added that most had fled to other neighboring camps to avoid being detected and forced to return against their will.

Dozens of individuals on the list of potential returnees submitted by Bangladesh have recently said that they would refuse to return to Myanmars troubled Rakhine state, from where they fled, saying they were terrified.

One refugee, who has fled with his family from Jamtoli to the large Kutupalong camp to evade repatriation, said Rohingya fears were growing as refugees faced forcible return to Myanmar. People are so afraid of being identified. They are avoiding Friday prayers at the mosque.

The developments come as the governments of Bangladesh and Myanmar are to push ahead with the repatriation of thousands of Rohingya Muslims this week against the wishes of the refugees.

A Myanmar government statement has said an initial group of 2,251 would be sent back from mid-November at a rate of 150 per day.

Myanmars Minister for Social Welfare and Resettlement Win Myat Aye said on Sunday they were ready to begin receiving refugees this week.

It depends on the other country, whether this will actually happen or not, the minister said, adding, But we must be ready from our side. We have done that.

Abul Kalam, the Bangladesh governments Relief and Repatriation Commissioner, said he was hopeful the process could begin on Thursday.

The return will be voluntary. Nobody will be forced to go back, he said.

The UN refugee agency in a statement late on Sunday called on Myanmar to allow Rohingya refugees to visit their places of origin or resettlement sites to make their own independent assessment of whether they feel they can return there in safety and dignity.

Child exploitation: Ukrainian far-right Svoboda camp is training kids to kill Signs of the Times

The campers, some clad in combat fatigues, carefully aim their assault rifles. Their instructor offers advice: Don't think of your target as a human being. So when these boys and girls shoot, they will shoot to kill. Most are in their teens, but some are as young as 8 years old. They are at a summer camp created by one of Ukraine's radical nationalist groups, hidden in a forest in the west of the country, that was visited by The Associated Press. The camp has two purposes: to train children to defend their country from Russians and their sympathizers - and to spread nationalist ideology. "We never aim guns at people," instructor Yuri "Chornota" Cherkashin tells them. "But we don't count separatists, little green men, occupiers from Moscow, as people. So we can and should aim at them."

European Central Bank In Panic Mode as Economy Stalls blogfactory

By Andrew Moran

The eurozone could not borrow from the momentum of the U.S. economy in the third quarter as economic growth slumped to a tepid 0.2% , the slowest rate in more than four years. With the 19-nation currency bloc beginning to stagnate, and the heavyweights failing to post significant gains, Brussels is in panic mode, likely leaning on the European Central Bank (ECB) for further stimulus.

Economists originally anticipated growth of 0.4%. But global trade woes, tumbling business confidence, Italian distress, and the gradual dissipation of an accommodative monetary policy all contributed to the poor numbers in the July-September period.

Italy fell into stagnation, failing to record any growth. Rome has been contending with a debt crisis, sending the yield (interest rates) on government bond prices higher. Officials are embroiled in a contentious battle with the EU because their borrowing plans violate the trade blocs rules. There is now talk of a Keynesian-style fiscal stimulus to rev up the national economy.

France, which endured a terrible first half, reported a 0.4% increase, lower than the market forecast of 0.5%. The economy gained on surging business investment, household consumption, and net trade. While the figures are commendable, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire did not help matters when he suggested that the eurozone is not prepared to contain a new financial crisis, adding that it is in no ones interest that Italy be in difficulty.

Germany, the economic engine of the eurozone, will not publish its Q3 numbers until mid-November. But the Bundesbank has warned that growth might have flat-lined in the previous quarter. Researchers do predict a recovery for Berlin in the final quarter of 2018, driven by a resurgence in the automobile sector and falling unemployment.

The data sent the euro plunging to an intraday low against the greenback.

 What Happened?

There were some bullish spots in the Eurostat report, but it was primarily bearish. What happened?

The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) placed the blame on Germanys lackluster manufacturing for dragging down the economy. But Chinese demand, which was up nearly 20% last year, has cooled to just 3% this year, causing many businesses to fear that the U.S.-China trade spat is creating a ripple effect.

500,000 Killed by Americas Global War on Terror Just Scratches the Surface blogfactory

The United States so-called War on Terror has killed about half a million people in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, according to a new estimate from the Costs of War Project at Brown Universitys Watson Institute.

This new body count signals that, far from diminishing, the war is only intensifying, Stephanie Savell, co-director of the project, pointed out in a piece for Axios. The overall death toll is an increase of 113,000 over the last count, issued just two years ago.

The new report (pdf) estimates that since 2001, between 480,000 and 507,000 people have been killed because of war violence in those three nationsa tally that does not include the more than 500,000 deaths from the war in Syria, raging since 2011, which the U.S. joined in August 2014, and indirect deaths, or those killed by wars impact on public health, such as limiting access to food, water, hospitals, and electricity.

#YouAreNotAlone: Call for international solidarity with Bulgarian women Lefteast

A call for solidarity actions with Bulgarian womens upcoming protest against politicians ignorance of womens issues, issued by (Informal group of Bulgarian left feminists) and initially published on Diversia.net .

Dear comrades,

This is a call for international solidarity with an upcoming protest in Sofia, Bulgaria that will voice our anguish with a growing violent wave of misogyny in the country.

The protest will take place on November 26, 2018.

We will demand changes that do not only concern the criminal code but such that aim prevention of misogynic crimes. We will also demand an end of violations of rights of working women in the country and changes towards a more responsible social security system.

Bulgarias refusal to ratify the Istanbul Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence in the beginning of 2018 was the tip of the iceberg in a long standing process of hatemongering against women that included gradual removal of their working rights, and an effacement of years of hard-fought social rights. For example, child care is being dislocated from the social sphere, while the government promotes completely inadequate measures against gender based violence and plainly refuses to admit its existence. We have been witnessing a wave of attacks against women and queers on the streets, in their work places, and at home. Many men felt threatened by those who voice their anger with the undying patriarchal structures and step forward to defend their privileged position relying on both physical and verbal abuse. Walking on the streets in Bulgaria is becoming more and more dangerous endeavor for women and queers with each passing day. Since the beginning of 2018, twenty-two women have been killed in domestic violence throughout the country. There are countless victims of gender-based harassment.

Bulgaria exhibits extremely poor labour conditions, which can be linked to a long-standing and ever increasing market liberalization and deregulation. Women are dispropotionally affected by these processes as a recent repo...

Dont kill wigeons, court decides Dear Kitty. Some blog

This is an Eurasian wigeon video.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Wigeons in South Holland province are not allowed to be shot

For the time being, wigeons in South Holland can not be shot, the court in The Hague has decided. The province of South Holland wanted to allow hunting of wigeons because of the damage the birds supposedly cause to agriculture.

BirdLife in the Netherlands and the Nature and Environmental Federation of South Holland (NMZH) appealed against this, supported by 10,000 protest emails by citizens. Wigeons are small ducks who come to the Netherlands to overwinter.

Influence on birds

According to the court, there is no clear insight into the influence of the shooting on the level of conservation of wigeons. Therefore, shooting the birds is illegal for the time being.

The NMZH is pleased with the ruling. According to the organization, the number of wigeons has been decreasing over the past decades.

Top Saudis discussed assassinating Irans General Soleimani in 2017, sources tell NY Times blogfactory

Saudi Major General Ahmed al-Assiri, who has allegedly been fired over the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, took part at a meeting in Riyadh in 2017 that involved plans to assassinate the kingdoms determined enemy, Irans Major General Qassem Soleimani, as well as sabotaging Irans economy, The New York Times reports, citing three sources familiar with the matter.

The March 2017 meeting in Riyadh brought together businessmen that pitched a $2 billion plan to use private intelligence operatives to sabotage the Iranian economy, read the report released Sunday.

Top Saudi intelligence officials close to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman asked a small group of businessmen last year about using private companies to assassinate Iranian enemies of the kingdom, it said.

 

As the meeting came at a time that bin Salman was consolidating his power in the kingdom, the report concludes that planning for assassinations, like that of dissident journalist Khashoggi, started since the beginning of Prince Mohammeds ascent.

Assiris top aides also inquired about killing Irans General Soleimani as the attendees were trying to win Saudi funding for their plan, read the report by the US daily.

General Solemani has been at the forefront of Irans advisory efforts in Syria and Iraq, two Muslim countries suffering from Takfiri militancy, allegedly backed by Saudi Arabia and some other US allies.

 

Irans foreign ministry has accused Washington of seeking to wage an extensive psychological war against Tehran, insisting that such US measures are not worthy of much concern.

The new revelation adds to the embarrassment the US ally is facing in the wake of Khashoggis assassination at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul as well as violation of human rights in the war on Ye...

Germany and EU are funding militants in Idlib says Tagesspiegel blogfactory

Surprise! Surprise!

(someone in Germany just woke up)

The German government and other EU members are funding militants still present in Idlib and involved in a conflict against the Syrian army, Germanys Tagesspiegel newspaper has revealed.  

According to the report cited by British daily the Telegraph on Sunday, no less than 37.5 million euros has been transferred to militant groups in Idlib by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In total, Berlin has paid nearly 49 million euros to militants fighting to topple the Syrian government and facilitated the transfer of similar funds by other EU members, it added.

Those funds included 11.3 million other sources, or 17 million euros from the European Union, for which Germany would have played an intermediary role.

According to the report, the German government does not communicate the precise list of recipients of the funds for fear of angering Russia and other sides involved in the Syria war.

This file photo shows Jabhat al-Nusra militants at the entrance of Idlib in northwest Syria.

The information was revealed in an answer given by German Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Walter Lindner to a question asked by Member of European Parliament Evrim Sommer, to which Tagesspiegel was able to have access.

The report comes after German Chancellor Angela Merkel met with Russian and Turkish leaders in Istanbul late last month to discuss a solution to the Syria conflict.

Ankara has long backed militants seeking to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad, while Moscow is a close ally of the Syrian government in its relentless fight against foreign-backed terrorists.

Merkel apparently rejected Russian President Vladimir Putins call to financially contribute to Syrias reconstruction after they met outside Berlin in August.

CIA Whistleblower: Brennan and Clapper Should Not Escape Prosecution MintPress News

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, the longtime chairman of the Judiciary Committee, made a dramatic announcement Nov. 1 that should lead to jail time for both former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

As reported, but widely overlooked amid the media focus on the midterm elections, Brennan ordered CIA hackers to intercept the emails of all potential or possible intelligence community whistleblowers who may have been trying to contact the congressional oversight committees, specifically to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Hacking the Senates computer system constitutes illegal use of a government computer, illegal espionage, and wire fraud.

Brennan and Clapper, in 2014, ostensibly notified congressional overseers about this, but in a way that either tied senators hands or kept them in the dark. They classified the notifications.

As a result, Grassley knew of the hacking but couldnt say anything while senators on neither the Intelligence or Judiciary Committees didnt know.

Its a felony to classify a crime. Its also a felony to classify something solely for the purpose of preventing embarrassment to the CIA.

For all of thisfor the hacking in the first place, and then the classification of that criminal deedboth men belong in prison.

This kind of over-classification is illegal, but few Americans know that because this law is not enforced. The Justice Department has never brought over-classification charges against a U.S. spying authority.

But this would be a good place to start.

Clapper infamously denied to Senator Ron Wyden in an open hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee that NSA was spying on American citizens. When he was finally challenged on his lie, he said that saying no was the least dishonest response he could think of.

There is a strong public interest in [the] content [of the two notifications], Grassley said, adding their content should be released in their entirety. What s...

Ex-Houthi minister gets a shoe thrown at him just like George W. Bush Signs of the Times

Echoing the infamous shoeing attempt of George W. Bush in 2008, an ex-Houthi minister was stuck by the footwear of an angry Yemeni journalist during his first media outing since his defection to Saudi Arabia. The shoe went flying at Abdul-Salam Ali Gaber, who had served as the Houthi's information minister since civil war broke out in Yemen in 2014, as he spoke to gathered media in the Saudi capital Riyadh on Sunday. In Arab culture, the throwing of a shoe at someone is seen as a mark of deep contempt - and an insult - for the intended target. The practice came to the attention of those outside the Arab world in 2008, after Iraqi journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi hurled both of his shoes at former US President George W. Bush during a press conference in Baghdad.

The Mueller Probe Is in Grave Danger Truthdig RSS

The day after the midterm elections, Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointed Trump loyalist Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Whitaker, who has criticized the Mueller probe in the past, could fire Robert Mueller or defang his investigation.

Although Sessions was faithfully carrying out Trumps draconian agenda on civil rights, immigration and policing, the president had Sessions in his sights since the latter recused himself from the Russia investigation in March 2017. Sessionss recusal resulted from his failure to disclose at his confirmation hearing that he met with Russian officials when he was a Trump campaign adviser in 2016. The recusal paved the way for the appointment of Mueller as special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May 2017.

Champing at the bit to fire Sessions, Trump was convinced by his advisers to wait until after the midterms to avoid harming GOP candidates.

Sessionss recusal infuriated Trump because it resulted in Rosenstein appointing Mueller as special counsel. Mueller has been methodically following his mandate to investigate any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.

So far, Muellers probe has produced criminal charges against 32 individuals, including 26 Russians, and four close Trump aides have entered guilty pleas.

Whitaker Will Try to Defang Mueller Without Firing Him

An official from the Justice Department told The Washington Post that Whitaker would replace Rosenstein as the decision-making authority over Muellers investigation.

But Whitaker has a likely conflict of interest that could be examined by Justice Department ethics advisers who may pressure him to recuse himself. Whitaker has criticized the Mueller probe on television and in writing. In light of what happened to Sessions, Whitaker is unlikely to recuse himself. Indeed, Trump invariably fired Sessions and appointed Whitaker in...

When an FDA ruling curbed fecal transplants, I performed my own Signs of the Times

Doctors and policymakers have been slow to endorse the treatment - a last line of defense against the superbug C. Diff. - even as many patients have embraced it. I'd had intestinal distress before, but never like this. I was excreting not just waste, but blood and bits of my colon's lining - up to 30 times per day. My abdominal pain hit deeper and felt less productive than the pain of giving birth, epidural-free, to my second child. Even shingles, which stung like a dental drill against my face, paled in comparison. Such was the agony of Clostridium difficile. Commonly known as C. diff., Clostridium difficile is an antibiotic-resistant superbug carried by approximately 5 percent of the adult population. The harmful gut bacterium is normally kept in check by other, good bacteria in the gut's microbiome. But when the microbial balance is upset - for example, by a dose of antibiotics - C. diff. can gain a foothold. Left to multiply unchecked, it may kill its human host.

De-dollarizing: Russia excels at eliminating reliance on dollar ahead of pending US sanctions Signs of the Times

The list of the countries currently taking active steps towards eliminating their economic reliance on the US dollar is growing. Russia has joined a league of nations is making a lot of headway with the task, the WSJ reports. The share of foreign currency in corporate and personal deposits in Russia has declined to 26 percent in September from a 2016 peak of 37 percent, the newspaper reports, citing data from the Central Bank of Russia. Meanwhile, the share of dollar-priced export revenues reportedly dropped to 68 percent in the second quarter of the current year from more than 80 percent five years ago.

The share of Russia-China trade priced in national currencies has quadrupled in four years to some 19 percent of the entire turnover, and is set to grow further, Moscow-based economist at ING Bank Dmitry Dolgin told the...

BEST OF THE WEB: American 'liberation': New report breaks silence on US slaughter in Raqqa, civilian deaths at least 25x higher than admitted Signs of the Times

Entire families perished in US-led strikes on Raqqa that may have claimed more civilian lives than those of ISIS, NPR said in a shocking report tilting the Western media narrative on what has become of the "liberated" city. The retaking of Raqqa from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) extremists, was hailed by the mainstream media as a major victory for the Western coalition one year ago - even despite harrowing reports of civilian casualties and unhinged destruction caused by the offensive. One year later, the Syrian city, where people are living side-by-side with rubble and human remains, barely makes a blip in Western media. But now a new report, supplied with a warning it "contains descriptions of dead bodies," is bringing harrowing testimonies of people, working tirelessly to recover corpses from under the ruins, to the Western readers. Those may be surprised to discover that US-led airstrikes apparently left more civilian casualties than publicly acknowledged.

Democrats urged to open Exxon probe

Ascendant House Democrats gearing up to aggressively probe the White House are facing pressure to pursue another target too: ExxonMobil.

Why it matters: Democrats are taking power for the first time since a wave of investigative reporting in 2015 about how much Exxon knew internally about global warming decades ago and its past funding of groups that publicly disputed the science.

Where it stands: The activist group 350.org is circulating a petition to lawmakers on their agenda  including a recommendation to investigate Exxon about the topic.

  • 350s Jamie Henn tells Axios that investigating Exxon and other major oil companies should be a top priority for the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.
