Havana Runs Out of Toilet Paper Reader 12/06/2017 (Wed) 02:18:03 Id: 178769 [Preview] No. 4087 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Practical Preparedness Tips: >>2967

A Cuban state media outlet confirmed last week that the nation’s capital, Havana, is suffering significant shortages of toilet paper. While the absence of common goods in the communist nation is not uncommon, such acknowledgment of a problem is rare.

The state newspaper Juventud Rebelde (“Rebellious Youth”) reported on Wednesday that toilet paper had “disappeared” from stores in Havana, announcing that the government’s state-run producer of toilet paper had acquired new machinery to generate toilet paper.

“They are not the super-machines, but they have an elevated technology level,” toilet paper engineer Manolo González García told the newspaper. One advantage of the new machines, he explains, is that they can simultaneously churn out two types of toilet paper rolls: a high-quality one for tourists, and an “ecological” one to sell to Cuban citizens.

The Miami-based Cuban news outlet Martí Noticias noted this week that Havana has suffered major shortages of toilet paper “for weeks” before Juventud Rebelde reported on them. Diario de Cuba adds that the Castro regime has begun importing higher numbers of toilet paper rolls from Vietnam while it adjusts its ability to produce the paper domestically, citing Spanish newswire service EFE.

While Cuban communist media covering the shortages may be new, EFE notes that “toilet paper shortages have been a constant in Cuban homes since the crisis of the 1990s, leading many families to use official state newspaper as toilet paper.” After decades of having its communist government subsidized by the Soviet Union, Cuba suffered what the Castro regime has dubbed the “special period” of extreme poverty following the collapse of its patron in the 1990s. Cuba has since established a close relationship with Venezuela, which has provided free oil and key resources to keep the regime afloat.

Venezuela itself, thanks to the imposition of a similar socialist economic system to that of Cuba, began experiencing toilet paper shortages in 2013. By 2015, Venezuelan luxury hotels began requesting that visitors bring their own toilet paper into the country to guarantee they would have access to it. That year, the Venezuelan government cut a deal with Trinidad and Tobago to essentially buy toilet paper with its crude oil, which did little to stop the shortages. The Venezuelan military announced this year that soldiers participating in the violent repression of anti-socialist protests could expert to be rewarded with rolls of toilet paper.

Venezuela’s oil reserves have not been enough to stop toilet paper shortages in Cuba, just as they have failed Venezuela. In 2009, for example, Miami’s El Nuevo Herald reported on the growing popularity of the previously noted phenomenon of using communist propaganda as toilet paper—not as a political statement, but out of necessity. Toilet paper is particularly hard to find because “it is not included in the ration cards that cover basic products at highly subsidized prices.”

“Chinese and North Korean magazines are the favorites because of the softness of the paper,” the Herald noted at the time.

This is what ends up happening in every socialist nation, and America today is no different as we have been following the same path that these other countries have taken for 30+ years now. It started when Nixon de-pegged from the gold standard and it escalated when Papa Bush began the outsourcing of our domestic industry!

You cannot create a fiat legal tender, outsource massive sectors of productive industry, create a huge welfare system completely dependent on increasing debt and taxation, allow illegal hoards to flood into the nation for cheap slave labor, flood your economy and stock market with fiat currency (paper or digital, completely un-pegged from any value), provide gigantic corporate subsidies to monopolies (like Amazon, Monsanto, Tesla, et al!) which end up ruining small productive businesses, eradicating jobs and consolidating their wealth by mergers and acquisitions (thanks to the behalf of exploited taxpayers), bailing out insolvent and corrupt institutions (which defies every principle of capitalism!), manipulating economic data and statistics and flat out lying to the public how "great" everything is (as joblessness remains an all-time high, as industry continues to outsource and our trade deficits continue to expand!)... Oh God. The same failed policies that these socialist hellholes (and thats what they have become), have been put into place in the US for over 30 years now!

But MORONS will blame whatever president is currently in power when it all begins crashing down!

I myself choose to prep and diversify my wealth OUTSIDE and AWAY from the US petrodollar as it is officially kill at this point.



New 'Sonic Attack' Acoustic Weapons Tested On US Embassy Victims, Leading To Memory Loss And Brain Damage Reader 12/06/2017 (Wed) 14:33:26 Id: b38f64 [Preview] No. 4125 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In the most specific finding to date about physical damage, AP reports that doctors treating the U.S. Embassy victims of mysterious, invisible attacks in Cuba have discovered brain abnormalities as they search for clues to explain the hearing, vision, balance and memory damage.

Medical testing has revealed the embassy workers developed changes to the white matter tracts that let different parts of the brain communicate, several U.S. officials said, describing a growing consensus held by university and government physicians researching the attacks. White matter acts like information highways between brain cells.

As AP details, loud, mysterious sounds followed by hearing loss and ear-ringing had led investigators to suspect “sonic attacks.”

But officials are now carefully avoiding that term. The sounds may have been the byproduct of something else that caused damage, so they claim.

OP note: this sounds a lot like the acoustic weaponry that the US police state have been developing over the last 10 years, it can pinpoin geographical targets, read here: https://archive.fo/FgF2u

Whatever it was that harmed the Americans, it led to perceptible changes in their brains.

Physicians, FBI investigators and U.S. intelligence agencies have spent months trying to piece together the puzzle in Havana, where the U.S. says 24 U.S. government officials and spouses fell ill starting last year in homes and later in some hotels. The United States refers to “specific attacks” but says it doesn’t know who’s behind them. A few Canadian Embassy staffers also got sick.

The Cubans have urged the U.S. to release information about what it’s found. FBI investigators have spent months comparing cases to pinpoint what factors overlap.

U.S. officials told the AP that investigators have now determined:

Breitbart Criticized For Publishing Humanizing Profile Of Libtard Beta-Cuck Reader 12/06/2017 (Wed) 08:07:40 [Preview] No. 4113 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
LOS ANGELES—Blasting the publication for its gentle treatment of the divisive figure, far-right news outlet Breitbart was criticized Thursday for publishing a humanizing profile of a libtard beta-cuck. “It’s absolutely absurd that Breitbart of all places would think it was okay to portray this low-T liberal shill as a sympathetic figure,” said Roy Hagar of Traverse City, MI, one of many readers expressing anger and confusion over the site’s decision to treat the globalist SJW like he was just some regular everyday neo-Nazi. “Those blue-pill snowflakes already have enough of a bullhorn without Breitbart giving them even more media attention, and we can’t start normalizing their behavior. Just because he goes to Olive Garden with his family doesn’t mean that he’s not actively promoting white genocide.” At press time, Breitbart issued a retraction of the piece, explaining that it was never its intention to lend credence to the views of soy boys.

Intelligence Director Says Gov't Can Demand Encryption Backdoors Without Having To Run It By The FISA Court Reader 12/06/2017 (Wed) 06:43:46 [Preview] No. 4104 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A set of questions from Senator Ron Wyden -- directed at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence -- have finally received answers. The answers [PDF] were actually given to the Senate oversight committee in July but have just now been made public.

Zack Whittaker of ZDNet has taken a look at the answers the ODNI provided and found something that indicates the government can not only compel the creation of backdoors, but can do so without explicit approval from the FISA court.

''The government made its remarks in July in response to questions posed by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), but they were only made public this weekend.

The implication is that the government can use its legal authority to secretly ask a US-based company for technical assistance, such as building an encryption backdoor into a product, but can petition the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to compel the company if it refuses.

In its answers, the government said it has "not to date" needed to ask the FISC to issue an order to compel a company to backdoor or weaken its encryption.

The government would not say, however, if it's ever asked a company to add an encryption backdoor.''

The way this process works is the agency requesting the backdoor or other compelled assistance runs the request by the FISA court. This process does not ask the FISA court to approve the method used, nor does it provide the court with details on the assistance sought. All the FISC determines is whether or not compelled assistance is necessary.

The ODNI maintains it has never asked for compelled decryption or the installation of backdoors… at least not under this authority. If it has, there'd be little in the way of a paper trail to prove it. The FBI, as part of the Intelligence Community, appears to be more interested in securing the help of US courts -- something that would prove far more useful in the long run, considering its domestic focus.

This information comes at a critical time. The surveillance wing of the government wants Section 702 (and related authorities) renewed at the end of this year -- unaltered and with at least a half-decade before the next chance of reform. So far, its two Congressional oversight bodies have been compliant with the IC's wishes. Serious reform efforts have been dumped by both House and Senate judiciary committees, leaving only those authored by longtime surveillance state cheerleaders in the running. With limited oversight and an easy way to route around FISA roadblocks, Section 702 reform is badly needed if we have any hope of the next decade being less filled with Fourth Amendment violations than the last one.

So Pathetic: Commiefornia Schools Sued For Refusing To Teach Children To Read Reader 12/06/2017 (Wed) 00:08:00 Id: 5d0d8e [Preview] No. 4081 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A group of prominent lawyers representing teachers and students from poor performing schools sued California on Tuesday, arguing that the state has done nothing about a high number of schoolchildren who do not know how to read.

The advocacy law firm, Public Counsel, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to demand the California Department of Education address its "literacy crisis." The state has not followed suggestions from its own report on the problem five years ago, the lawsuit said.

"When it comes to literacy and the delivery of basic education, California is dragging down the nation," said Public Counsel lawyer Mark Rosenbaum, who sued along with the law firm Morrison & Foerster.

Department of Education spokesman Bill Ainsworth said officials could not comment because the state had not yet been served with the lawsuit.

English assessments found less than half of California students from third grade to fifth grade have met statewide literacy standards since 2015. Both traditional and charter schools are failing, Rosenbaum said.

Of the 26 lowest-performing districts in the nation, 11 are in California, according to the lawsuit. Texas, the largest state after California, has only one district among the 26.

Among the plaintiffs are current and former teachers and students from three of California's lowest performing schools: La Salle Avenue Elementary School in Los Angeles; Children of Promise Preparatory Academy, a charter school in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood; and Van Buren Elementary School, in the central California city of Stockton.

One of the plaintiffs is an 11-year-old student identified only as Katie T. When she completed fifth grade at La Salle, she was at the reading level of a student just starting third grade and was given no meaningful help, the lawsuit said.

State assessments found 96 percent of students at the school were not proficient in English or math, according to the lawsuit. Only eight of the school's 179 students were found to be proficient when tested last year.

You always here them complaining about how the schools need more money. And the politicians keep giving them more and more and more money. More and more funding. Well then, why isn't it working? Maybe what needs to happen is we need to stop all the taxpayer handouts to these bureaucrats running the schools. Ever notice the bureaucrats drive all the fancy cars, get the highest paychecks, get all the best benefits... and who are they teaching? NO ONE. They treat the teachers like dirt, less than dirt. They push their Marxist policies and thats why so many good teachers are quiting all across the country. But yet the bureaucrats always want more money! And they blame the teachers for everything they have fucked up. This is what happens when the State runs the school system.

Well its a combination of that and bureaucratic corruption. I personally know a teacher living in Illinois and we talked about this kind of problem that is going on. The bureaucracy of these schools has gotten massive, its wasting TONS of money (these are high paying jobs where paper pushers dictate what teachers and students can/can't do all day long), and teachers are over-burdened. And a lot of these bureaucrats are uber-liberal politically correct scumbags. You know where this all goes, exactly to the problem you pointed out. They'll deliberately dumb down the curriculum so that all the negros and spicks get better grades, I kid you not. Meanwhile our children's education turns to SHIT. And its NOT the teachers fault, its these bureaucrats who order them to change their curriculum and policies.

Teachers are quiting in droves because of this, it will soon become a crisis: lack of teachers in America.



Police Uncover Massive Pedophile Ring At Disney World Reader 12/06/2017 (Wed) 00:39:46 Id: 5f9f2a [Preview] No. 4082 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Police have uncovered a huge pedophile ring at Disney World, Florida, with over 35 employees arrested for alleged child rape offences.

The Disney employees include people from management, a concierge, a tour guide, and a ticket seller.

Disney has downplayed the arrests, insisting that the theme park is so large that those arrested account for a just 0.01 percent of its overall workforce.

Dailymail.co.uk reports:

But Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said paedophiles have obvious reasons for wanting to work at the resort and wants compulsory ‘lie detector’ polygraph tests for staff to be made legal.

The toll of Disney workers arrested was revealed after a six-month investigation by CNN’s Kyra Phillips and Scott Zamost.

They tracked down many of the suspects still facing trial including 50-year-old Robert Kingsolver, who was employed as a ride repair worker by Disney when he was arrested in February.

He faces two charges of soliciting a child to commit a sex act after Lake County police say he tried to meet up with a 14-year-old girl.

Kingsolver – who has pleaded not guilty – told CNN he was trying to protect the girl from further harm, was not a predator and loved working at the resort.

America Last: Pro-Amnesty, Bush Bureaucrat With Ties to ‘Never Trump’ Movement Confirmed to Lead DHS Reader 12/06/2017 (Wed) 00:07:02 Id: 2d1f44 [Preview] No. 4080 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The United States Senate voted to confirm former President George W. Bush bureaucrat Kirstjen Nielsen to lead the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) despite her ties to the “Never Trump” movement and seemingly having no experience working on immigration-related issues.

The Senate confirmed Nielsen in a 62-37 vote on Tuesday, making her the new head of the agency which is tasked with carrying out President Trump’s pro-American immigration reform agenda.

When Nielsen was chosen by Trump to lead DHS, members of the failed “Never Trump” movement, Breitbart News reported, immediately praised her nomination as a win for the national security establishment. Never Trumpers championing Nielsen’s nomination included pro-amnesty DHS Secretary Tom Ridge, former Bush official Frances Townsend, and former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff.

Previously, as Breitbart News extensively reported, Nielsen worked as a special assistant to Bush and as the chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda on Risk & Resilience Committee.

While working for Bush, the administration — immediately following hurricane Katrina in 2005 — temporarily dismantled pro-American worker laws, such as suspending sanctions for employers who willingly hire illegal aliens, and waving the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act, which mandated that federal contractors pay workers the average regional wage.

The impact of Bush’s decision had a devastating effect on working-class Americans who saw their jobs wash away with Katrina, as Breitbart News reported. The results amounted to an estimated 30,000 illegal aliens entering the Gulf Coast region to take thousands of American blue-collar jobs that would have otherwise gone to impacted working-class Americans.

As chair of the World Economic Forum committee, Nielsen promoted mass immigration to Europe and the U.S., claiming Western nations did not have a choice and needed to accept millions of migrants. That report, as Breitbart News reported, was co-authored by executives from multinational corporations and world banks.

Witch Hunt Update: Robert Mueller Subpoenas Trump's Bank Accounts, Revokes Comey’s Immunity Deal Reader 12/05/2017 (Tue) 14:43:49 Id: e97c04 [Preview] No. 4065 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
There has been a reported falling out between U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller and ex-FBI Chief James Comey in recent weeks which leaves Comey potentially vulnerable to possible criminal charges, according to Justice Department and FBI sources.

The stakes have changed in the sweeping Russia collusion investigation that has spread far beyond the 2016 presidential election timeline.

Any immunity agreement that was previously on the table protecting Comey is now off the table, according to multiple DOJ sources. For months since he was fired by President Donald Trump in June, Comey has been testifying and acting like a major D.C. player with little to worry about.

But at some point in recent weeks, that has changed based on new information about Comey’s tenure at FBI which has been uncovered during Mueller’s probe, sources said.

Perhaps this is one reason why Comey has taken to social media to quote scripture and post nature pictures, including one photo of him standing alone amid corn stalks in a field during a sunset in Iowa.

https://archive.fo/VMWpn

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, demanding that it disclose details of transactions and documents on accounts help by President Trump and members of his family as the "Russian collusion" probe now turns its attention to Trump's bank accounts. According to Handelsblatt, which first reported the news, the bank received the subpoena several weeks ago. Trump has had a banking relationship with Deutsche Bank dating back nearly two decades and the German lender's $300 million loan accounts for nearly half of his outstanding debt (based on a July 2016 analysis by Bloomberg). Trump's debt to Deutsche includes $170m relating to a Washington hotel.

The media is taking the Deutsche Bank news as a sign that Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 alleged campaign is “deepening”. However, it was clear that a subpoena was coming more than four months ago (see below) and, besides Michael Flynn, Mueller’s investigation has included interviews with three other former Trump aides recently, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former spokesman Sean Spicer and National Security Council chief of staff Keith Kellogg, according to people familiar with the investigation.

As Bloomberg adds, "the news comes as Mueller’s investigation appears to be entering a new phase, with Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleading guilty Friday to lying to FBI agents, becoming the fourth associate of the president ensnared by Mueller’s probe. More significantly, he also is providing details to Mueller about the Trump campaign’s approach to Flynn’s controversial meeting with a Russian envoy during the presidential transition."

Another! Mueller's Deputy Praised DOJ Official After She Illegally Defied Trump's Travel Ban Order'

A top prosecutor who is now a deputy for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe praised then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by President Trump for refusing to defend his controversial travel ban.

The email, obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, shows that on the night of Jan. 30, Andrew Weissmann wrote to Yates under the subject line, “I am so proud.”

He continued, “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”

The disclosure follows confirmation that another Mueller investigator, FBI official Peter Strzok, was fired over the summer after allegedly sending anti-Trump texts to an FBI lawyer with whom he was romantically involved.

His alleged actions revived concerns about the objectivity of the FBI probes of both Hillary Clinton’s email setup and Russia election meddling.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called the new Weissmann document an “astonishing and disturbing find.”

“Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,” he said in a statement. “How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans?”

The Jan. 30 email was sent at 9:50 p.m. from Weissmann’s government account, when he was still in the DOJ’s criminal division and before he was assigned to Mueller’s probe.

Someone Is Lying, Who Is It? White House Claiming Reports About Subpoenaed Bank Accounts Are Completely False

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday disputed reports that special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed President Trump’s bank records.

“We confirmed that the news reports [that] the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records related to the president are completely false,” Sanders said during the daily press briefing.

“No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources. I think this is another example of the media going too far and too fast and we don't see it going in that direction," she said.

Citing an anonymous and unidentified official, Reuters reported earlier Tuesday that Mueller’s team had subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank, where Trump is believed to have a line of credit and to have conducted tens of millions of dollars in transactions.

But Sanders said those reports are false and were another example of the news media getting something wrong in the frenzy to report on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Sanders declined to say whether banks should comply with subpoenas for records if they receive them.

“I'm not going to get into hypothetical situations and try to determine everything that could happen,” she said. “We know it hasn't happened up until this point and that the reports out were totally false and again the media got ahead of their skis a little bit, pushing and driving that story that wasn't true.”

Venezuela’s Maduro Launches New Oil-Based Cryptocurrency To Bypass US Sanctions, Banking Regulations Reader 12/05/2017 (Tue) 15:01:26 Id: d3b6fb [Preview] No. 4066 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/4037

Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro has announced the introduction of a new oil-based cryptocurrency to help restore the country’s collapsed economy.

In his weekly televised address, Maduro said that “Venezuela will create a cryptocurrency” backed by oil, gas, gold and diamond reserves, that would allow the troubled country “to advance in issues of monetary sovereignty, to make financial transactions and overcome the financial blockade.”

“The 21st century has arrived,” Maduro told a group of his supporters and announced the introduction of a “Blockchain Observatory” to analyze the technology behind cryptocurrencies.

According to the state television network VTV, the move represents the “next step in the technological evolution of humanity, and will allow Venezuela to overcome the bureaucracy of the banks and the dependence on paper money,” yet little detail is available about the project’s implementation.

Cryptocurrencies have been increasingly important in the past few years as a way of bypassing financial regulations, with the most popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin recently reaching record value of over $10,000.

The plan is likely an effort to reduce pressure on Venezuela’s collapsed economy, with the country recently defaulting on its debts of over $120 billion, forcing them to turn to Russia and China for. Some economists have suggested that the regime plan to pay their creditors using petrol.

The move is also an attempt to push back and potentially bypass economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. prohibiting Americans from dealing with the country’s state oil company PDSVA, as well as freezing the personal assets of numerous government officials, leading to accusations from Maduro of the U.S. of waging an “economic war” against his regime.

A cryptocurrency would also help reduce the problem of mass inflation, which has rendered Venezuelan currency practically worthless and forced people to carry thousands of banknotes to afford the most basic of products.

I'm here to make an assumption about this report: their main problem with making this cryptocurrency successful will be the lack of wealth in Venezuela to invest into it.

It could become successful, say, if the Chinese or Russians or India were to bail them out by investing in their cryptocurrency to establish trade with Venezuela. "Buy our cryptos and we'll fill up some of your oil tankers!" OK, that would work.

However the majority of people in Venezuela are dirt poor, starving and pissed off, and my guess would be this: if they were ever to recover they'd seek vengeance for their suffering under Nicolás Maduro and his socialist regime.

By Maduro empowering his people via recovering the economy, it would be the equivalent to a despot giving angry desperate mobs of people guns and ammo. That despot would not last long because he is utterly despised by his own people. I'll give you a true example: imagine if you and your family were starving, searching for your next meal as the grocery stores have been emptied... you hear a broadcast on the emergency radio from a government official telling everyone to eat rocks and grass from the ground outside and not to worry about it.



More Anti-Trump Messages Reportedly Sent By Members Of Mueller's Bias Investigative Team Reader 12/05/2017 (Tue) 14:16:34 Id: ff47f6 [Preview] No. 4064 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Days after it emerged that former Special Counsel investigator Peter Strzok was fired from Robert Mueller's Trump-Russia probe in August for sending anti-Trump text messages to his mistress while the two were working together on the Clinton email investigation, Sara Carter of Circa told a Fox News panel that there are more anti-Trump messages sent by Mueller's team floating around.

Carter previously emerged as one of the handful of people to review documents obtained by an undercover FBI informant embedded in the Russian uranium industry. Appearing on Hannity's show Monday night, Carter was asked about rumors of more anti-Trump sentiment expressed by Mueller's team:

Sean Hannity: I’m hearing rumors all over the place Sara Carter that there are other anti-Trump text-emails out there. And we know about them.

Sara Carter: I think you’re hearing correctly Sean and I think a lot more is going to come out. In fact, I know a lot more is going to come out based on the sources I’ve spoken to.

The clip: https://hooktube.com/watch?v=8i5fDEmTHvA

To review: veteran FBI agent Peter Strzok, working under James Comey, headed up both the Clinton email investigation and the Trump-Russia probe before Mueller's special counsel was created to take the reigns. Strzok - who was responsible for changing the FBI's opinion of Clinton's mishandling of classified info from "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless," - had an extramarital affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page while the two were working on the Clinton "matter." During the investigation, Strzok sent Page anti-Trump / pro-Clinton text messages, which resulted in the dismissal of both Strzok and Page from Mueller's Trump-Russia probe. Strzok now works in the FBI's HR department.

Strzok's conduct during the Clinton email investigation and any other politically charged cases he's worked on, are now being investigated by the DOJ's Office of Personel Management the results of which, per Sara Carter of Circa, will be coming out in December and January.
