LAPD Sends Message To Hollywood Elites: We Are Investigating Your Rape of Women & Pedo Connections
Los Angeles police are investigating almost two dozen cases of alleged criminal sexual misconduct connected to multiple people within the entertainment industry, a senior department official told NBC News.
The cases involve individuals who are known publicly as well as others who have not yet been identified, the official said Friday.
Allegations span from misdemeanor sexual battery to felony rape, and in many cases, there are multiple complaints lodged against the same individual, the official said. With calls from victims continuing to roll in, the number of investigations is expected to rise.
While police have not said publicly who is under investigation, law enforcement's response comes after a mounting list of Hollywood heavy hitters, including Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey, have been accused of some form of sexual misconduct.
Spacey's representatives said earlier this month that the actor "is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment."
Netflix cut ties with him and announced that it would be suspending production of the sixth season of the D.C.-based drama "House of Cards."
Police officials in New York have already said that a rape allegation against film producer Harvey Weinstein, who has seen more than 85 women accuse him of sexual misconduct, is "credible." They are collecting more evidence to build the case.
"We have an actual case here," NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told reporters earlier this month.
NBC News confirmed at least four sexual misconduct or sexual assault investigations connected to Weinstein are underway in the Los Angeles area as well. Two of them are being handled by the LAPD.https://archive.fo/zel4ohttps://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/harvey-weinstein-scandal/lapd-investigates-nearly-two-dozen-sex-crime-cases-tied-hollywood-n822106

Zimbabwe Dictator Mugabe Arrested, Replaced By New Leader... Mugabe Vows Hunger Strike (Ironic After Starving His Own People)
Deposed dictator Robert Mugabe broke down in tears and asked for his dead wife and son before meeting army chiefs on Sunday after being ousted as leader of Zimbabwe's Zanu-PF party, one of his aides has told MailOnline.
The frail 93-year-old has until noon local time on Monday to resign as president or impeachment proceedings will start, Zanu-PF said.
Mugabe was replaced by the vice president he previously sacked, Emmerson 'Crocodile' Mnangagwa, after all ten Zimbabwean provinces passed no-confidence motions against the dictator two days earlier.
The frail dictator has been staging a hunger strike over his confinement in house arrest and is refusing to take regular baths or speak, the aide added.
Mugabe is expected to address the nation this evening on live television, it has been announced.https://archive.fo/sMngp
Robert Mugabe has had a history of kicking white African farmers off their land, resulting in the starvation of many Africans in Zimbabwe.
According to an older report (from 2002):
People are being starved in Zimbabwe by President Robert Mugabe's deliberate and systematic ploy of using food shortages to cling to power.
Millions of people are going hungry not, as Mr Mugabe's government claims, because of poor rains but as a direct result of its policy of denying food to opposition supporters and enriching its loyalists.
Last night, the deadline passed for the mass eviction of 2,900 of Zimbabwe's white commercial farmers, for decades the mainstay of the agricultural sector. Mr Mugabe ordered them to abandon their homes, land and livelihoods by midnight.
An investigation by The Telegraph found that control of the Grain Marketing Board (GMB), Zimbabwe's state-owned monopoly supplier of commercial maize, was passed this year to one of Mr Mugabe's most loyal henchmen, Air Marshal Perence Shiri, an alleged war criminal.
Worse still was the country's Food For Work programme. Thousands of opposition supporters would provide 15 days' labour only to be told at the end there was no GMB food for them.
The GMB is so corrupt and politicised that aid groups shipping food into Zimbabwe are being forced to set up their own expensive parallel storage and distribution facilities, rather than using those of the GMB - the traditional way of bringing food aid into Zimbabwe.
There is also evidence that the Zimbabwean government is deliberately blocking the work of these international aid groups and keeping the flow of aid down to a trickle.https://archive.fo/28Hjc

inb4 This Guy Gets Killed! FBI Informant Has Video Evidence of Clinton Uranium One Deal, To Testify
An undercover FBI informant in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former AG Loretta Lynch, claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal – according to The Hill investigative journalist John Solomon and Circa‘s Sara Carter.
The informant, whose identity was revealed by Reuters as William D. Campbell, will testify before congress next week after the NDA which carried the threat of prison time was lifted. Campbell, originally misidentifed by Reuters as a lobbyist is actually a nuclear industry consultant who is currently battling cancer.
As previously reported, Campbell was deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry where he gathered extensive evidence of a racketeering scheme involving bribes and kickbacks.
“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. – The Hillhttps://archive.fo/PbdJ9https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/355749-fbi-uncovered-russian-bribery-plot-before-obama-administration
Campbell’s attorney, former Regan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing, previously told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”
Sarah Carter: He’s very sick and he’s been battling cancer and going chemo. He is in a battle for not only his life, but in a battle against what he perceives as people within the US government that don’t want this story to come out. But there’s so much information that he is willing to share with the public to set the record straight, and believe me we’re gonna get it out there. He is going to have his say. His voice will be heard.
Hannity: He knew about the bribery, kickbacks, extortion of Putin’s agents in the US?
Sara Carter: Yes, and he will be able to lay that all out for everyone, and he will do that for Congress. John and I have been working on this for months and months and months. He came to the [Obama] DOJ with this information.
John Solomon: He is going to be an extraordinary fact witness because he gathered so much information. There are videotapes where the Russians are opening up briefcases full of cash. These are the people we then gave uranium to, that we then gave nuclear fuel contracts to.
Hannity: This is happening before they sign off on Uranium One? They knew about bribery extortion kickbacks money laundering before? They knew this was Putin and they did it anyway!
John Solomon: Yes. The Russians really thought they had played America on this one. https://hooktube.com/watch?v=cO0Lh8gOu5Qhttps://archive.fo/LhAb1http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-18/fbi-informant-has-video-russian-agents-briefcases-bribe-money-clinton-uranium-scanda

Good! LAPD Arrest 39 Members Of Pedophile Ring, Rescue 13-Year-Old Victim
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) arrested 39 people in connection to a pedophile ring on Friday, which led to the rescue of a 13-year-old girl.
The sweep was led by the Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Task Force, along with officers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Compton Station.
LA Times reports:
Two women were arrested on charges of soliciting undercover deputies for various sex acts, authorities said.
Sixteen additional females were arrested on suspicion of loitering for the purposes of prostitution, authorities said.
All of the women were offered services from the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking, and eight were identified as victims of human trafficking, authorities said.
Seventeen of those arrested were men who solicited undercover deputies for various sex acts, authorities said.https://archive.fo/fTt1Phttp://yournewswire.com/lapd-arrest-39-pedophile-ring/

Good! 193 Illegal Alien Gang Members Arrested In MS-13 Crackdown
Operation Raging Bull led to the arrest over 267 MS-13 gang members. 198 were in the United States with 193 of them being illegal aliens.
These arrests follow restrictions being lifted on the departments Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) by Jeff Sessions 2 weeks ago:
Now they will go after MS-13 with a renewed vigor and a sharpened focus. I am announcing that I have authorized them to use every lawful tool to investigate MS-13—not just our drug laws, but everything from RICO to our tax laws to our firearms laws. – Jeff Sessions, Attorney General
President Trump gave a speech in Long Island where he laid out his administrations plans to crack down on MS-13.
When asked about allegations of profiling by CBS News correspondent Margaret Brennan our ICE Director said:
People can make allegations all day long. I got 20,000 American patriots that work for ICE… These are men and women who do their job honorably. They get up every morning, strap a gun to their hip and leave the safety of their homes and their families to protect communities, to protect people they’ll never meet and they’ll never know. – Tom Homan, ICE Director
Homan said that he felt that his hands were tied under the Obama administration and that President Trump has enabled him to do his job. With President Trump he is allowed to arrest illegal aliens for crossing the border instead of waiting for them to commit a crime.
Homan credited the Trump administration for sending a new message to Central and South America, ‘Just because you get across the border, you are not home free’.
President Trump has set a new standard for America’s immigration policy and unlike Obama, illegal immigration isn’t a part of it.https://archive.fo/TPlwxhttp://www.magapill.com/193-illegal-alien-gang-members-arrested/

Deutsche Bank Admits Fiat Currencies Are Failing, Cryptocurrencies May Replace Them
As the transition towards a blockchain based economy continues, the established financial powers are desperately trying to stay relevant. In an attempt to boost their credibility, analysts at Deutsche Bank are finally admitting that state-run fiat currencies are becoming obsolete. For years, blockchain entrepreneurs and other critics of central banking have been branded either conspiracy theorists or criminals. But recently, those controversial opinions about the inevitable changes coming to the world’s financial system are being echoed by mainstream pundits.
Deutsche Bank’s top strategist, Jim Reid, recently articulated a view on the economy that is shared by many but rarely talked about:
“Central banks and governments which have ‘dined out’ on the 35 year secular, structural decline in inflation are not able to prevent it rising as raising interest rates to suitable levels would risk serious economic contraction given the huge debt burden economies face. As such they are forced to prioritise low interest rates and nominal growth over inflation control which could herald in the beginning of the end of the global fiat currency system that begun with the abandonment of Bretton Woods back in 1971.”
The most surprising part came when he acknowledged the crucial role cryptocurrencies may play in the move away from unbacked paper money.
“Although the current speculative interest in cryptocurrencies is more to do with blockchain technology than a loss of faith in paper money, at some point there will likely be some median of exchange that becomes more universal and a competitor of paper money.”
The people’s trust in centralized control of currencies has never been directly challenged on this scale before. Competition in the emerging digital economy between different cryptocurrencies has introduced an alternative monetary system that empowers the individual and rewards based on merit, not special interests.
Any paradigm shift like this is guaranteed to have growing pains, but those who refuse to adapt will suffer most. Even though Bitcoin, Ethereum, and countless other blockchain applications may create tremendous value for years to come, the current volatility is still more than most can stomach. One of the first things new people in the space love and hate is the tendency toward massive swings in price that occur seemingly at random. Those who do decide to get involved need to make their primary focus self-education. Trying to stay objective without understanding the fundamentals behind issues like scalability, forks, different algorithms, and mining incentives will be nearly impossible. The reactions driven by ignorance, greed, and fear are all amplified in these new unregulated markets, meaning there is no safety net for amateurs. These wild fluctuations will eventually level out as broader adoption occurs and the ability for major players to manipulate price diminishes. Before building a large position in crypto, it may be more important to develop a strong understanding of the technology and history.

Mexico Authorities Seize 800 Pounds Of Cocaine Being Delivered To The United States Social Security Institute
YES! The corruption is THIS bad!
Authorities in Mexico have seized a massive shipment of cocaine that was headed towards a U.S. government facility in America.
A statement from the Defense Department says the vehicle which was transporting the cocaine belonged to the United States Social Security Institute.
These types of vehicles typically are responsible for disaster aid or philanthropic programs inside of Mexico, most likely sent as earthquake relief.
Mexican Soldiers have now detained three men who were inside of the vehicle, claiming that they were employees or the Social Security Institute which has yet to be confirmed by the agency.
The truck originated in the Tamaulipas state capital of Ciudad Victoria bound for Reynosa, across the border from McAllen, Texas; and it remains unseen if it belongs to a Cartel or how they acquired the vehicle if that were the case.
There will be an ongoing investigation involving both United States Federal Agencies and Mexican authorities to determine whether anyone from inside either nation’s disaster programs was involved in the trafficking or even the theft of the vehicle.
Currently, the United States has not issued a formal statement as to the incident.https://archive.fo/7lsmVhttp://yournewswire.com/mexico-us-govermment-cocaine/

Newly Discovered Classified Clinton Emails Expose US Govt Collusion With Islamic Terrorists Within Libya
New classified emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are dug up.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has discovered more classified emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showing even more pay-to-play activity from the Clinton mafia.
Judicial Watch today released 109 pages of new Hillary Clinton emails from her tenure as secretary of state. The documents include two email exchanges classified confidential and a 2011 exchange with Sid Blumenthal about “serious trouble for the Libyan rebels.”https://www.judicialwatch.org/document-archive/tag/hrc-emails-nov-2017/
The newly-produced emails were part of 72,000 pages of documents the FBI recovered last year in its investigation into Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. The records include emails Hillary Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose.
Two heavily redacted emails marked Classified Confidential included a November 2011 exchange under the Subject: “Egyptian MFA on Hamas-PLO talks,” and a June 28, 2011 email from Clinton to Abedin in which Clinton writes “I have now promised the Kuwaiti PM 3 times that I will deliver an address at the Oxford Islamic Center. Pls be sure that’s on the list for next Fall/next year.”
On March 9, 2011, Sid Blumenthal emailed Clinton about the situation in Libya, with the subject line “H: serious trouble for Libyan rebels. Sid” The email discusses urging leaders of the National Libyan Council (NLC) “to consider hiring private troops (mercenaries) to support, organize, and train the rebel forces in Libya.” Blumenthal adds that “a small number of private troops could turn the battle against Qaddafi’s forces, particularly if they are equipped with sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons.” Clinton asks former aide Huma Abedin to “print for me w/o any identifiers”.
The Washington Times reported Libyan officials were deeply concerned in 2011 that Clinton was responsible for weapons being funneled to NATO-backed rebels in Libya with ties to al Qaeda.
On October 6, 2009, Clinton’s then-Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills emails “I am purposefully on gmail” to Abedin and Maggie Williams, former campaign manager for Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. [Emphasis added] Mills was responding to an October 4, 2009, email from Clinton, most of which was redacted.
On January 6, 2012, Clinton can be seen “expediting” a citizenship request so the requestor can get a government job in policy or law enforcement:
I am told by Citizenship and Immigration (CIS) caseworkers that it may be at least another 8 months before they get to me, making the total time more than a year (they advertise 6 months total turnaround time).
Would you consider helping me by reaching out to DHS Secretary Napolitano or CIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas who reports to her on my behalf? The ask is to simply consider moving up my applications for review ASAP. My application is complete, straight forward and I have nothing to hide.”

Why Go Through Horrific Chemo Radiation When Eating Frozen Lemon Peels Have Been Proven To Destroy Cancer Cells?
Frozen lemons are more powerful that chemotherapy in the fight against cancer, according to new research from Stanford University that is being desperately covered up by Big Pharma.
The study proves that powerful nutrients in lemon peel can destroy the cancer cells of 12 types of cancer, including some of the deadliest – prostate, colon, pancreatic and lung cancer.
Explaining that the most potent way to consume lemons is to freeze them and then consume them along with their peel, researchers state that we have been making a terrible mistake when it comes to lemons because the lemon peel is actually much more health beneficial than the fruit and we have been throwing it to waste.
How best to take advantage of the potent nutrients in this amazing fruit’s skin?
First rinse the lemons thoroughly, then toss them in a zip lock bag and put them in the freezer. Wait until they’re completely frozen and grate the whole lemon with a regular grater. You can now add this grated lemon to whichever dish you want, sprinkle it on top your ice-cream or salad or add it to your smoothies and shakes.
Lemon sprinkles will make everything taste better and will add to the meal’s nutritional profile as well. It turns out that the lemon peel contains up to 10 times more vitamins than the fruit’s juice so health experts all across the globe recommend it.
Green Healthy Planet reports: If you start following this rule of thumb when consuming lemons, freezing them and eating them with their peel, you’ll gain far greater health benefits than extracting the lemon juice alone. All the vitamins and other nutrients located in the lemon peel will regenerate every cell and tissue in your body and help your body detox.
Health experts have said that the lemon skin has an effect thousand times more powerful than chemotherapy and plus it doesn’t have any of the adverse side-effects associated with chemo.
The pharmaceutical companies that run this world want to keep this a secret until they find a way to synthesize it and turn it into a drug they can make profit of but how many people are going to die until then?
Grated frozen lemons are super easy to combine with your food, you can add them to ice cream, salads, soups and so on and take advantage of all the benefits they hold. The best thing about frozen lemon peel is that it’s incredibly effective against all types of cancer, cysts and tumors. Multiple studies on the subject have showed the powerful effect of lemon peel against cancer cells and recommend it as a treatment. Moreover, lemon peels have powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial effect meaning that they’re effective against bacterial and fungal infections as well. They also regulate your blood pressure, have antidepressant effects and eliminate feelings of anxiety and irritability. If this wasn’t enough, lemon peels alkalize your body and regulate the blood’s pH values, promoting optimal health.
Studies have shown that lemon peels can destroy the cancer cells of 12 types of cancer among which one of the deadliest – prostate, colon, pancreatic and lung cancer.
The compounds found in lemon peels, as we already said before, are thousand times more powerful than ADRIAMYCIN, a drug commonly used in chemo but more importantly the lemon peels only act on the malignant cells, destroying them, while leaving behind the healthy cells without damaging them.https://archive.fo/jVxjGhttp://yournewswire.com/stanford-lemons-chemotherapy/

Well fuck it, it's a human right now, lets sue everyone religious and have their kids taken away to be properly conditioned by the state. Next the push to ban home schools.
Following quote is from GetUp campaign, a mailing list i somehow ended up on after someone put my e-mail down for the kony2012 bullshit.
"Australia just said YES, clearing the way for Parliament to pass marriage equality!
This result is more than a majority in a survey. It's more than winning a campaign. It's even more than the joy and celebration couples and their families across Australia are today sharing.
We made history, working together.
Through conversations — some of which were hard, some of which were cathartic — we used our vulnerability as our strength, and our stories as our power. We kept focussed, not flinching when our opponents tried to distract or divide us.
This is why we won the postal vote — because in our millions, we worked together. And this is exactly how we'll get a bill passed, once and for all.
We've just pulled off the most extraordinary feat, but it's not over yet. Opponents of marriage equality like Tony Abbott, James Paterson and Cory Bernardi have already bolted from the starting blocks with nasty, discriminatory amendments to marriage equality legislation that would see equality given with one hand and cruelly snatched away with the other."

Oil Prices Could Double If Middle East Conflict Escalates
Barrel traders recently pushed the price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil above $US 55; the first time in over two years.
Scarcity doesn’t really justify the upward price movement. There isn’t a shortage of oil in the world. But there could be, in the worst case, if missiles start flying between two of the world’s largest oil players: Saudi Arabia and Iran.
Maybe it won’t happen. But maybe it will. And that’s what the “geopolitical risk premium” is all about. It’s an anxiety surcharge that’s tacked onto every barrel of oil, in fear of supply disruption on a moment’s notice. And the fear is back.
After three years of naivety we’re back to acknowledging the known unknowns of the Middle East, the uncertainties that strap a 10-to-20 percent premium on the price of a barrel.
Paying a risk premium for oil is nothing new. It’s been around for decades and has gone up and down with the hostility thermometer of the Middle East.
Unusually, the pricing of risk dropped to zero around 2015. Three main reasons prompted a sense of world peace: the promise of the Iranian nuclear deal; a feeling that booming oilfields in Texas could offset any disruption; and a growing surplus of oil inventories in storage tanks around the world.
Of late, the notion of oil obsolescence has also perpetuated a feeling of nonchalance. “Who cares about the Middle East and their oil?” has been a question driven by the utopian narrative: “I’m not worried, everyone will be driving electric cars in a few years anyway.”
But it’s all been a false sense of security.
Electric cars are still rare. Oil remains vital to the world economy. Its geographic concentration is such that a large proportion of the world’s needs is produced from underneath layers of geopolitics, religious antagonism, authoritarianism, civil strife and corruption.

Spywatches Banned In Germany
German regulators have banned certain types of 'smartwatches' marketed to children, saying the devices have been used to listen in on school classrooms and run afoul of Germany's surveillance restrictions.
The Bundesnetzagentur, or Federal Network Agency, said in a statement issued Friday that watches that would allow parents to "listen unnoticed to a child's environment" constitute an unauthorized transmitting system.
The agency said parents have been using watches marketed to children between the ages of 5 and 12 to monitor teachers.
It didn't name specific brands, but advised schools to be on the lookout for such devices.
The agency also says that if buyers of the products become known to authorities, they will be told to destroy the watches.https://archive.fo/8aW2Whttps://www.yahoo.com/news/germany-bans-childrens-smart-watches-142329380.html

Venezuela and Zimbabwe Show Why Physical Gold & Silver Is The Ultimate Protection of Wealth
A military coup-de-grace in Zimbabwe and a bankrupt Venezuela. Both countries have extreme hyperinflation, citizens are starving and basic medical treatment is near impossible to find. These are the real world problems 47.5 million people are currently facing.
Presidents Robert Mugabe and Nicolas Maduro both deny the crises in their respective countries. For Maduro it is the media propagating false truths. In Zimbabwe the response to hyperinflation has been to declare it illegal.
Both countries are in the media spotlight after a significant week that has left one man powerless and another scrambling to restore faith in his bankrupt country.
Each country’s mess is thanks to mismanagement of resources and the central banking system. Citizens have had their rights almost decimated as the cash in the bank is worth increasingly less and fewer people are receiving income. Basic goods and services are near impossible to come by, with little sign of let-up.
The hyperinflation and economic situations in both the Latin American and south African country are a reminder of the damage caused by governments. Both Maduro and Mugabe have acted under the premise of serving the electorate. Citizens as a result have only suffered and seen their wealth diminish on a daily basis.
Both countries may seem a million miles away from the West in terms of political situation and cultures. However there is a strong lesson to be learnt. Savers should learn the need to protect their earnings and wealth from the manipulative decisions of governments and destructive monetary policies.
We all recall the hyperinflation event of 2008 when Zimbabwe suffered the second most severe episode of hyperinflation in recorded history. Zimbabwe’s annual inflation rate reached 89.7 sextillion (10^23) percent. In response Mugabe and his cronies replaced the Zimbabwean currency with the US currency.
Now Zimbabwe is undergoing a fresh currency crisis as well as a coup-de-grace. It is facing shortages of the US dollar and banks are being forced to ration withdrawals. The bond notes, issued to make up the shortfall, have dropped sharply in value on black market exchanges. The end result is inflation in retail stores and foreign suppliers refusing to accept the made-up-money.
Today the country is thought to be heading back towards 2008, once again. Steve Hanke, economics professor at Johns Hopkins University has calculated that as of 25 October this year the monthly rate of inflation is 77% and the annual rate is 348%. The official dollar-denominated rate is 0.38%. This is hyperinflation and not something you can just outlaw or ignore.
As a result citizens are suffering and the government is unable to meet basic requirements. The central bank has previously said Zimbabwe had a backlog of more than $500 million in pending foreign payments. This is for necessities such as fuel and medical supplies.
Agricultural production, in the once-known bread basket of Africa, has collapsed following the farm seizures and a lack of cash. Wheat production in 1990, before the farm seizures began, was 325,000 tonnes. In 2016, it was just 20,000 tonnes.
Meanwhile, on the ground citizens are struggling to protect the value of their money. With a 95% unemployment rate this is a hard enough situation to bear. Reports of earners and savers withdrawing their money to invest in real assets are rife as few trust that $200 in the bank today will still be there tomorrow.
Whilst the latest political turn of events is likely to be welcomed, it still brings about an air of uncertainty. Few foreign governments are likely to support aid packages to the country until matters have been resolved and a stable(ish) government is in power. Even China, which is the country’s main source of income and support, is likely to stand still and await to see how it all unfolds.
In the meantime feet on the ground continue to suffer as hyperinflation increases and they struggle to pay for and find basic goods and services.

Terabytes Exposed! US Military Caught Red Handed Spying On Civilians' Social Media Accounts
Three misconfigured AWS S3 buckets have been discovered wide open on the public internet containing "dozens of terabytes" of social media posts and similar pages – all scraped from around the world by the US military to identify and profile persons of interest.
The archives were found by veteran security breach hunter UpGuard's Chris Vickery during a routine scan of open Amazon-hosted data silos, and these ones weren't exactly hidden. The buckets were named centcom-backup, centcom-archive, and pacom-archive.
CENTCOM is the common abbreviation for the US Central Command, which controls army operations in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. PACOM is the name for US Pacific Command, covering the rest of southern Asia, China and Australasia.
Vickery told The Register today he stumbled upon them by accident while running a scan for the word "COM" in publicly accessible S3 buckets. After refining his search, the CENTCOM archive popped up, and at first he thought it was related to Chinese multinational Tencent, but quickly realized it was a US military archive of astounding size.
"For the research I downloaded 400GB of samples but there were many terabytes of data up there," he said. "It's mainly compressed text files that can expand out by a factor of ten so there's dozens and dozens of terabytes out there and that's a conservative estimate."Just one of the buckets contained 1.8 billion social media posts automatically fetched over the past eight years up to today. It mainly contains postings made in central Asia, however Vickery noted that some of the material is taken from comments made by American citizens.
The databases also reveal some interesting clues as to what this information is being used for. Documents make reference to the fact that the archive was collected as part of the US government's Outpost program, which is a social media monitoring and influencing campaign designed to target overseas youths and steer them away from terrorism.
Vickery found the Outpost development configuration files in the archive, as well as Apache Lucene indexes of keywords designed to be used with the open-source search engine Elasticsearch. Another file refers to Coral, which may well be a reference to the US military's Coral Reef data-mining program.
"Coral Reef is a way to analyze a major data source to provide the analyst the ability to mine significant amounts of data and provide suggestive associations between individuals to build out that social network," Mark Kitz, technical director for the Army Distributed Common Ground System – Army, told the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association magazine Signal back in 2012.
"Previously, we would mine through those intelligence reports or whatever data would be available, and that would be very manual-intensive."https://archive.fo/yv2T2

CDC: Around 90% of Americans Are Very Unhealthy, Have Horrible Diets, Will Not Live Long
Only a sliver of Americans eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Just 12% of Americans eat the minimum daily fruit recommendation of one and a half to two cups per day, and only 9% consume the minimum daily vegetable recommendation of two to three cups per day, according to the study, published on Thursday.
“The study confirms years of data demonstrating that Americans do not eat their veggies,” Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition and food studies at New York University, told the Guardian. “Assuming this result is close to reality, it suggests the need for taking much stronger action to make it easier and cheaper to eat fruits and vegetables.”
The study, which broke out groups of Americans by state, class, race and gender, found some subgroups were even less likely to eat enough produce.
Men, young adults and people living in poverty all had especially low rates of fruit and vegetable intake. While 15.1% of women eat the recommended amount of fruit each day ,just 9.2% of men do the same. Similarly, 11.4% of wealthy Americans eat enough vegetables, but only 7% of poor people did the same.
Because a poor diet is linked to cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes, public health authorities have long endorsed a diet rich in fruit and vegetables.https://archive.fo/ginH6https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/nov/17/just-12-of-americans-eat-enough-fruit-and-vegetables-cdc-study-finds

Plane Crashes Into Helicopter Mid-air Over Rothschild Family's Buckinghamshire Estate
Four people are feared dead after a light aircraft and a helicopter crashed in mid-air over the Buckinghamshire countryside this afternoon.
Wreckage from both aircraft fell from the sky after those living near the historic Waddesdon Manor estate heard a loud bang shortly after midday.
The pilot of the helicopter and its single passenger, as well as the pilot and a passenger of the plane, are all feared to have died in the crash, which happened at around 1,000ft.
Pictures from the scene show fragments of the helicopter's rotor-blades and the plane's fuselage scattered around the woodland floor.
A local resident told MailOnline: 'My father heard a loud bang. He ran up to the scene. It was clear pretty quickly that no one has survived.'
The local resident added: 'My mother said a man, who I think was someone who had been out walking nearby, went running up to the manor to say there had been a crash. Everyone is now helping the emergency services.'
Both aircraft involved had taken off from Wycombe Air Park, which is 16 miles to the south east of the estate, and were flying at low altitude.
At least seven fire engines and three search and rescue vehicles rushed to the scene after the first 999 call came in at 12.06pm.
The plane that crashed is believed to be a Cessna 152, a popular training aircraft which has space for only one pilot and one passenger.https://archive.fo/dtOP5
Waddesdon Manor is managed by the Rothschild Foundation, a family charitable trust, on behalf of the National Trust, who took over ownership in 1957.
The estate comprises of 6,000 acres of land and is managed by a team of farmers, tenant farmers and foresters.
Waddesdon was purchased in 1874 with the Rothschild family managing the land, allowing the Forestry Commission to run schemes to maintain the forest.
Lord Rothschild and his daughter Beth have recreated major features such as the Millenium Avenue of trees linking the Manor with Upper Winchendon.https://archive.fo/R55kW
It is not yet known is Jacob Rothschild was in the estate at the time of the crash or whether he survived the incident.
At least seven fire engines are now attending the scene searching for survivors.https://archive.fo/AMC5T

China Vindicates Trump, Mocks Paris Climate Accord with Record CO2 Emissions
China’s CO2 emissions are shooting to the moon:https://web.archive.org/web/20171117032306/https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/nov/13/global-emissions-2-pct-despite-us-drop/
Several studies released by the Global Carbon Project say worldwide carbon emissions are projected to jump about 2 percent this year after staying flat for three years, according to preliminary estimates.
The culprit, the data show, is China
, which has kept its emissions in check in recent years but now shows a massive rise in pollution. Under the Paris pact, China agreed to cap its emissions by 2030, meaning it is still free to increase pollution.
China’s uptick this year, after a 1 percent drop in 2015 and flat emissions last year, is largely a result of the country’s increased use of fossil fuel
This is very bad news if you believe in the man-made global warming fairy.
But it’s great news if you’re Donald Trump. It means that his decision to pull out of the UN Paris Accord is vindicated – and for all the reasons he gave.
Here is the key section from the President’s Rose Garden speech in June this year when he announced the U.S. withdrawal.
"For example, under the agreement, China will be able to increase these emissions by a staggering number of years — 13. They can do whatever they want for 13 years. Not us. India makes its participation contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid from developed countries. There are many other examples. But the bottom line is that the Paris Accord is very unfair, at the highest level, to the United States.
Further, while the current agreement effectively blocks the development of clean coal in America — which it does, and the mines are starting to open up. We’re having a big opening in two weeks. Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places. A big opening of a brand-new mine. It’s unheard of. For many, many years, that hasn’t happened. They asked me if I’d go. I’m going to try.
China will be allowed to build hundreds of additional coal plants. So we can’t build the plants, but they can, according to this agreement. India will be allowed to double its coal production by 2020. Think of it: India can double their coal production. We’re supposed to get rid of ours. Even Europe is allowed to continue construction of coal plants."Exactly.
The Paris Accord was a bad deal for the U.S. It would have needlessly handled a huge competitive advantage to economies like India and China, while doing next to nothing – actually, let’s be honest, nothing – to combat climate change.
China’s contempt for the West’s ludicrous CO2 emissions reductions targets has long been an open secret.
As we reported in 2015 in this Breitbart article titled China Shows How Much It Cares About Emissions Targets – With A Single Upraised Finger – China has always prioritized industrial growth above pointless sacrifices to imaginary green sky fairies. Sure it will sign treaties like the Paris Accord if it keeps the dumb gweilo happy. But nobody in China seriously believes in man-made global warming – why would they when all the evidence says otherwise? – so it’s not like they have any intention of acting on it.
The only surprising part of this story is that anyone, anywhere, is gullible enough to believe that China’s CO2 emissions increase is a surprise.https://archive.fo/hTBxnhttp://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/15/delingpole-china-vindicates-trump-mocks-paris-accord-with-record-co2-emissions/

ICE Agents Angry Trump Hasn't Purged Obama's Corrupt Holdovers At The Top Ranks
The country’s immigration enforcement officers launched a website Tuesday demanding that President Trump do more to clean up their agency, saying he has left the Obama team in place and it’s stymying his goal of enforcing laws on the books.U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement supervisors in Philadelphia banned officers from wearing bulletproof vests during an operation in the dangerous “badlands” section in the city’s north for fear of offending the immigrant community, according to a new website, JICReport.com.Meanwhile, officers in one Utah city are required to give city officials seven days’ heads-up before arresting anyone — and by the time they go to make the arrest, the immigrants they are targeting have taken off, the website says.
Compiled by the National ICE Council, which represents ICE officers, the website is part whistleblower and part primal scream for Mr. Trump to pay attention to a group of people who were among his staunchest backers during the presidential campaign.
“ICE Officers grudgingly admit that the only President they ever endorsed hasn’t kept his word, and many officers now feel betrayed,” the officers say on the website.
National ICE Council President Chris Crane, in an open letter to Mr. Trump, posted on the site, said he finds himself regularly having to defend the president to ICE officers who backed Mr. Trump during the campaign but now feel “stab[bed] in the back” by the administration.Mr. Crane said he gives Mr. Trump the benefit of the doubt but that those around the president — whom he doesn’t name — appear to be trying to shield him from hearing about the continued struggles at ICE.
“While officers view the President’s position on enforcement as courageous, the Trump administration has left all of the Obama managers and leadership in place, a group that ICE Officers know after the last eight years to be completely incompetent, corrupt and anti-enforcement,” Mr. Crane wrote.https://archive.fo/R7hlBhttps://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/nov/14/ice-agents-rebel-say-trump-betrayed-them/

BOOM! Turkey Rejects Rothschild Banking Cabal: Ditches Dollar, Flips East And Buys Up Gold
Turkey has rejected the corrupt House of Rothschild, as citizens and banks drop the US dollar in favor of gold.
The central bank has sharply ramped up gold buying in recent months, in a move a World Gold Council report calls a ‘revolt against the International Monetary Fund.’
According to the report, investments in gold have reached record highs as the people rise up and reject the Rothschild-controlled IMF.
Rt.com reports: “Bar and coin purchases, a measure of investment demand, were 47 metric tons so far in 2017, compared with 14.8 tons in the same period a year ago,” ZeroHedge quotes the report as saying.
Turkey Buys 47 Metric Tons of #Gold in 2017 YTD $GLD $TUR pic.twitter.com/4qRoOqFUzC
— GoldInvestingAdvice (@Gold_Advice) November 14, 2017
The Turkish central bank has bought almost 30.4 tons of gold this year. The surge in buying is reportedly triggered by state measures aimed at diversifying international reserves in light of rising tensions between Turkey and its traditional Western allies the US and Europe.
A year ago, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the Turkish public to keep savings in gold and avoid the US dollar, urging the central bank to back that policy.
At the same time, the exchange value of the Turkish lira has dropped 15 percent since the beginning of October. The plunge inevitably makes the national currency increasingly unattractive as a savings vehicle.https://archive.fo/oqtI9http://yournewswire.com/turkey-rejects-rothschild-gold/

Not Only Have Establishment RINO Cucks Destroyed Their Own Party, Backstabbed Their Voters... NOW THIS!
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) took to Twitter on Wednesday to hint that his Republican colleagues are ready to cave on gun control.
Democrats have pushed over ten different gun controls since the October 1 Las Vegas attack. Those include a ban on semiautomatic weapons, “high capacity” magazines, bump stocks, and “assault weapons.” The gun controls also include calls for an Australian-style gun ban, a ban on trigger cranks, and the implementation of expanded background checks, even though the Las Vegas gunman—and almost every mass public attacker of recent memory—passed a background check for his firearms.
Sen. Murphy personally pushed for a ban on bump stocks and “assault weapons,” and called for more background checks as well.
On Wednesday he hinted that unnamed Republicans may be ready to join the gun control push, tweeting:
Big news: super close to a bipartisan breakthrough on gun legislation. Stay tuned…
— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) November 15, 2017
Nine Senate Republicans signed a letter calling for a hearing on bump stocks after the Las Vegas attack. The nine signatories were Sens. Dean Heller (R-NV), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), James Lankford (R-OK), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Tim Scott (R-SC), John Thune (R-SD), James Inhofe (R-OK), and John Cornyn (R-TX).https://archive.fo/Xf52Mhttp://www.breitbart.com/2nd-amendment/2017/11/15/sen-chris-murphy-hints-republicans-ready-cave-gun-control/

Traitors: Establishment RINO Cucks To Push Mass Deliberate Destabilization Against America (Amnesty)
The bipartisan national-security establishment from the past three administrations is urging Congress to pass legislation before the end of the year that would give amnesty to roughly 3.3 million illegal aliens.
In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), 13 national security officials asked that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) DREAM Act be quickly passed through the House and Senate.
Under the President Obama-created DACA program, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have been shielded from deportation and given work permits to remain in the United States. In September, though, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DACA program would officially end on March 2018.
The establishment figures say they want to see the amnesty for illegal aliens be passed through Congress and signed by President Trump “as quickly as possible.”
With every day that passes, these Dreamers are getting closer to the reality of deportation. We urge you to pass the Dream Act of 2017 as quickly as possible to provide permanent protection for Dreamers and relieve this deserving group of the uncertainty created by the President’s decision to rescind DACA. We should leave no man or woman behind. Let that be our guiding principle.
The DREAM Act is one of the largest amnesties for DACA illegal aliens that have been crafted thus far in Congress, allowing not just those on the DACA rolls to permanently remain in the U.S., but also those who are eligible for DACA.
The amnesty legislation would apply to roughly 3.3 million illegal aliens in the U.S., according to the Migration Policy Institute, and would set at least 1.7 million of those illegal aliens on a pathway to U.S. citizenship.
Once given U.S. citizenship, illegal aliens are then allowed to bring their foreign relatives to the U.S. in what is known as “chain migration.” As Breitbart News has reported, a DACA chain migration could range from a mass migration of 9.9 to 19 million foreign nationals entering the U.S. over the next few decades.
If President Trump ever signs legislation like this into law, he will be remembered for betraying the American people along with the rest of the RINO cuckservatives!https://archive.fo/NlDFghttp://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/15/establishment-leaders-urge-rush-to-huge-expensive-open-ended-amnesty/

Traitors: Establishment RINO Cucks Now Pushing To Undermine 2nd Amendment, Mandate Mental Health Screening
A bipartisan group of senators Thursday unveiled legislation to "improve background-checks" for gun sales.
The bill represents an incremental update to existing law but has the best chance of any effort to pass through Congress.
The bill, crafted by Sens. John Cornyn, R.-Texas, and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., would attempt to "better enforce current law" and strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check system to ensure all background check information is uploaded.
The NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 provided millions to encourage the states to improve their data sharing.
But here's the kicker: this bill is intended to create mandatory mental health screening for gun owners and purchasers within all US states.
In other words, the government would be able to DENY your 2nd Amendment right under the pretense of claiming you "mentally unfit to own a firearm." If you have any record of disability, that could be used against you. If you have any record of having stress problems - or even depression - that also could be used against you.
Although the mainstream media is trying desperately to cover this fact up, they have hinted about mandatory mental health screening of individual gun owners.
This is EXACTLY what Obama's regime was pushing for after they failed to ban semi-auto firearms in Congress. Both Obama and Hillary called for mandatory mental screening, and in fact Obama signed an executive order to do just that, although later being declared unconstitutional and repealed thanks to Trump and (the real conservatives in Congress) revoking that executive order.Additionally, the legislation would provide incentives for states who follow the uploading requirements, such as grants. Conversely, incentives such as withholding political appointees bonuses would be implemented to agencies who fail to comply.
What this states is taxpayer money can be used as a vehicle to bribe state officials to go along with unconstitutional gun control measures.
What this legislation will do is effectively undermine America's 2nd Amendment right to bear arms for years to come.https://archive.fo/rBiBIhttp://afe4d531642ddce0.paste.se/

Saudi Arabia Purge Saved Their Economy: Instead Of Austerity Against The Poor They Seized Wealth From The Corrupt
As we noted shortly after the Crown Prince’s purge of potential rivals within Saudi Arabia’s sprawling ruling family, while the dozens of arrests were made under the pretext of an "anti-corruption crackdown", Mohammed bin Salman’s ulterior motive was something else entirely: Replenishing the Kingdom’s depleted foreign reserves, which have been hammered for the past three years by low oil prices, with some estimating that the current purge could potentially bring in up to $800 billion in proceeds.
Furthermore, the geopolitical turmoil unleashed by the unprecedented crackdown helped push oil prices higher, creating an ancillary benefit for both the kingdom’s rulers and the upcoming IPO of Aramco.
And, in the latest confirmation that the crackdown was all about cash, the Financial Times reports today that the Saudi government has offered the new occupants of the Riyadh Ritz-Carlton a way out.... and it’s going to cost them: In some cases, as much as 70% of their net worth.
Saudi authorities are negotiating settlements with princes and businessmen held over allegations of corruption, offering deals for the detainees to pay for their freedom, people briefed on the discussions say.
In some cases the government is seeking to appropriate as much as 70 per cent of suspects’ wealth, two of the people said, in a bid to channel hundreds of billions of dollars into depleted state coffers.
The arrangements, which have already seen some assets and funds handed over to the state, provide an insight into the strategy behind Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s dramatic corruption purge.
The crackdown has led to the detention of hundreds of royals, ministers, officals and the country’s richest oligarchs including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the billionaire, Waleed al-Ibrahim, the founder of Middle East Broadcasting Center, which owns Al Arabiya, the Saudi satellite television channel, and Bakr bin Laden, chairman of the Saudi Binladin construction group and brother of Osama bin Laden.
Additionally, as we reported, the crackdown sent members of the country’s wealthy upper crust scrambling to liquidate their holdings and move their cash offshore, where they might have a better chance of keeping it away from the Saudi government.

Traitors: Establishment RINO Cucks Now Pushing Internet Censorship, Government Regulation of Online Media
In a major shift, RINO cuckservatives on the Federal Election Commission plan to join Democrats Thursday in calling for new Internet regulations on paid digital political ads.
In a statement issued late Wednesday, the three GOP members cited the “thousands of comments” from the public calling for new disclosure rules in light of concerns "Russian activists" used Internet posts on Facebook to try to influence the 2016 presidential elections.
“We hereby move to direct the Office of General Counsel to draft a notice of proposed rulemaking, as soon as is practicable, that proposes revisions to commission rules governing disclaimers on paid Internet and digital communications,” said the three, Vice Chair Caroline C. Hunter, Matthew S. Petersen, and Lee E. Goodman.
They called for a public hearing before any changes would take place.
The support for new disclosure on paid political communications on the Internet fell short of more liberal calls for regulation on non-paid ads and political communications posted on websites like Facebook and Twitter.
Still, it is a victory for communist commissioner Ellen Weintraub who has been pushing for regulations. She issued a note Wednesday saying that she would introduce a new regulation at Thursday’s meeting. In a separate note, FEC Chairman Steven T. Walther said he would move on the issue Thursday and called on Congress to consider new Internet laws.https://archive.fo/NglfYhttp://www.washingtonexaminer.com/surprise-unanimous-fec-to-push-for-internet-regulation/article/2640875

Tanks have been spotted heading towards Zimbabwe‘s capital Harare. Eyewitnesses said military vehicles were also blocking major roads outside the city.
Local media also reported that heavily armed military personnel had sealed off state TV broadcaster ZBC.
It comes amid rising tensions between the east African nation’s military and the country’s ruling Zanu-PF party, headed by President Robert Mugabe – the only leader Zimbabwe has known in 37 years.
The president plunged the country into political crisis by sacking his vice president Emerson Mnangagwa, 75, last week. The long-serving veteran of Zimbabwe’s 1970s liberation wars, had been viewed as a likely successor to Mr Mugabe before the president fired him.
President Robert Mugabe has been well known for killing his own citizens in Africa, endorsing violence against white farmers and starving his own people.

Feeling The Pain? Half of American Colleges Will Be Bankrupt In 10 to 15 Years
There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the United States, but Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen says that half are bound for bankruptcy in the next few decades.
Christensen is known for coining the theory of disruptive innovation in his 1997 book, "The Innovator's Dilemma." Since then, he has applied his theory of disruption to a wide range of industries, including education.
In his recent book, "The Innovative University," Christensen and co-author Henry Eyring analyze the future of traditional universities, and conclude that online education will become a more cost-effective way for students to receive an education, effectively undermining the business models of traditional institutions and running them out of business.
At the Innovation + Disruption Symposium in Higher Education in May, Christensen specifically predicted that "50 percent of the 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. will be bankrupt in 10 to 15 years."
More recently, he doubled down on his statements, telling 1,500 attendees at Salesforce.org's Higher Education Summit, "If you're asking whether the providers get disrupted within a decade — I might bet that it takes nine years rather than 10."
Christensen is not alone in thinking that online educational resources will cause traditional colleges and universities to close. The U.S. Department of Education and Moody's Investors Service project that in the coming years, closure rates of small colleges and universities will triple, and mergers will double.https://archive.fo/CZxErhttps://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/15/hbs-professor-half-of-us-colleges-will-be-bankrupt-in-10-to-15-years.html

Russia Squeezing US Out As Agricultural Superpower
The US is being pushed out of the grain market as Russia's bumper wheat harvest has dragged down prices to record lows. Russian agricultural exports are booming thanks to a weaker national currency and massive investment.
“We are pushing America aside in some markets, and we are satisfied with this,” said Russia’s Agriculture Minister Aleksandr Tkachev.
This year Russian farmers are expected to harvest the biggest crop in over a century. Russia will produce at least 83 million tons of wheat in the current growing season, according to estimates by The Wall Street Journal.
Lower prices and close proximity to large markets gives Russia an advantage, according to the General Director of the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies Dmitry Rylko.
“A relatively weak ruble is good for the Russian wheat market. We see either gradual or rapid growth for our exports,” the expert told RT.
However, the figure announced by the Russian government earlier this year is much more impressive. The Moscow-based grain consultant ProZerno estimates a harvest of over 130 million tons. It is 2.6 percent more than the previous record set in 1978 before the Soviet-Afghan War.
“Today our task is to set reasonable prices across the country. The grain crop of 130 million tons, there is more to come. It may reach up to 200 million tons. The main thing is to find new sales markets,” said Tkachev.
The US agricultural sector has faced lousy weather this season, meaning fewer acres of wheat were sowed in 2017 than ever before. US wheat output is expected to decline by a quarter compared to the previous season.
Unfavorable conditions along with Russia’s resurgence pushed wheat prices at the Chicago Board of Trade down almost 25 percent to $4.19 a bushel (about 27 kilograms) compared to July, when Russia began a record wheat harvest. The US Wheat Associates trade group announced the shutdown of its office in Egypt, the world’s biggest wheat importer.
“We literally can’t compete on the price of wheat in those markets compared to Russia,” said the trade group’s spokesman Steve Mercer, as quoted by the WSJ.
According to the US Agriculture Department, American wheat will make up just 15 percent of global exports in 2017, down from half four decades ago. The plunge was also caused by more grain grown in Europe and India. The US will produce half as much as Russia, according to the department.https://archive.fo/CA8S7https://www.rt.com/business/409704-russia-wheat-oust-us-egypt/

Donna Brazile To Testify In Seth Rich Murder Lawsuit
Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile has been asked to testify in a lawsuit alleging that the DNC murdered whistleblower Seth Rich.
Lawyer Jack Burkman, who filed the suit on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters last month, confirmed that Brazile was added to the lawsuit in respond to the recent bombshells she dropped in her new book.
Gotnews.com reports: “She released her [book] excerpts without realizing they could open her up to civil liability,” Burkman explained to GotNews. Brazile’s book documents how the Clinton campaign effectively took control of the DNC before the 2016 primaries even started.
“The entire DNC process in 2016 was biased for Hillary Clinton,” Burkman declared.
Burkman believes Brazile was foolish to blow the whistle so candidly on the DNC’s past corruption, given the leadership role she held there while the fraud and favor-trading occurred. “That’s like saying there’s corruption in the home, and it’s my home,” Burkman said.
Burkman, however, insists Brazile’s focus on murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich – she dedicates the book to him, and describes how she began closing her blinds in fear of snipers after his death – is even more significant. “The bigger bombshell was Seth Rich,” Burkman argued. “You have revelations that are probably more shocking than the revelation of the Nixon tapes in 1974… What is she saying? Does she know that the DNC killed Seth? What on earth is going on?”
“This isn’t Alex Jones, me, or Sean Hannity saying this,” Burkman elaborated. “This is the former DNC Chairwoman.”
Burkman’s lawsuit demands the DNC release its supposedly “hacked” server for an objective forensic analysis. He says the DNC is desperately trying to ignore it and hoping it will go away. “It’s a sad state of affairs [at the DNC],” Burkman told GotNews. “There’s been a purge of the Bernie people.”
However, Burkman is optimistic about the lawsuit. “We’re getting warmer,” Burkman explained. “This lawsuit has the potential to shut down the DNC as a political party.”https://archive.fo/wb485http://yournewswire.com/donna-brazile-testify-seth-rich-lawsuit/

Globalist Puppet Macron Blames The Victims For The Deliberate Destabilization of France
French President Emmanuel Macron has blamed France for the rise of Islamism - rather than the suicidal amnesty/open border policies - and claimed France was not good enough for these terrorists, as he outlined a series of 'social programmes' for the country’s Islamic-invaded neighbourhoods.
“Radicalisation has taken hold because the French Republic has resigned,” Macron said on Tuesday in the northern French city of Tourcoing, near Lille, as he outlined 15 'social policy' plans.
Focusing on the banlieues (low-income housing projects), which are home to large Muslim populations and were known for mass riots a decade ago, the French president said: “I will never confuse the few thousand radicalised and the millions of inhabitants of these neighbourhoods.”
Acknowledging that “in many of these troubled territories, radicalisation has taken hold”, he said that that fact should lead the nation to “question itself”.
Macron also unveiled his social plans whilst visiting the Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois on Monday. The suburb was in the headlines earlier in the year as being one of several neighbourhoods in the high-migrant populated French department of Seine-Saint-Denis that erupted into riots after the alleged assault of a young man by police officers.
France has seen dozens of Islamist terror attacks in the past three years, with many of the jihadis coming from or having connections with “no-go zones” like Seine-Saint-Denis, including the Belgian-born mastermind of the November 2015 Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud who was shot dead, along with two accomplices, whilst hiding in Saint-Denis.
Two years after the 2015 Paris attacks, where 130 people died and more than 350 were wounded at coordinated attacks at the national football stadium, the Bataclan concert hall, and at bars and restaurants across the city, some survivors and victims’ families snubbed President Macron at the memorial on Monday.
The globalist former banker axed the ministerial office for terror victims created by his predecessor, François Hollande, which was established to help survivors. Many of them accused Macron of failing to understand their trauma.
Michael Dias, 32, whose father, Manuel, 63, was killed after three suicide bombers detonated their devices outside the Stade de France, said: “President Macron has tried to ensure that the victims are forgotten by getting rid of the junior ministerial post that was dedicated to them and then reducing financial help for some categories of victims.”https://archive.fo/GC2NShttp://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/11/15/emmanuel-macron-blames-france-rise-islamic-radicalisation/

DEBT SLAVERY: Millions Of Millennials So Far Into Debt They Are Trading Sex For Their Next Debt Payment
As the storm clouds of peak stupidity gather over the heads of the millennial generation who were conned by banks, government, and universities to take out excessive amounts of leverage in auto loans, credit cards, and student debt; millions have flocked to a new website seeking ‘Sugar Daddies’ and or even ‘Sugar Mommies’ to pay off their debt amid an economic environment where wage growth remains non-existent.
Today’s real simple get-out-of-debt option for the broke college/post college millennial is through an unconventional dating website called SeekingArrangement.com.
In 2016, the website identified some 2.5 million college students who turned to the site in an act of desperation to find a ‘Sugar Daddy’ or even a ‘Sugar Mommy’ in exchange of personal time for straight cash.
The website’s mission is to “delivers a new way for relationships to form and grow. Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies or Mommas both get what they want, when they want it”.
We find it hard to believe the intention of the website, when created by MIT graduate Brandon Wade in 2006, was to have 25% of the 10 million users — broke college millennials.
According to Business Insider,
A couple years ago, the site noticed an uptick in the number of members signing up with a university email address, Alexis Germany, a spokesperson for SeekingArrangement.com, told Business Insider.
It decided to launch a marketing campaign - dubbed Sugar Baby University - targeting indebted college students and young people who are interested in college but afraid of taking on massive loans.In total, Americans owe more than $1.3 trillion in student loan debt to federal government agencies and or private lenders.

American Heart Association President Suffers Heart Attack
American Heart Association President John Warner was away from the AHA’s Scientific Sessions with his family Monday after having a minor heart attack during the organization’s flagship scientific conference.
Warner, a practicing cardiologist and the CEO of UT Southwestern University Hospitals in Dallas, had the episode Monday morning. He was taken to a local hospital, where doctors inserted a stent to open a clogged artery.
He was recovering and visiting with his wife, son and daughter, all of whom attended the Scientific Sessions meeting in part to see him deliver his Presidential Address on Sunday afternoon. In that speech, the 52-year-old Warner talked about the effects of heart disease on his family. He mentioned how both his father and his father’s father had heart bypass surgery in their 60s. He also lost his maternal grandfather and a great grandfather to heart disease.
“Earlier in my talk, I told you there were no old men in my family. I know this is also true in far too many other families, not just in the U.S., but around the world. I believe the people in this room have the power – and even the duty – to change that. Together, we can make sure old men and old women are regulars at family reunions. … In other words, I look forward to a future where people have the exact opposite experience of my family, that children grow up surrounded by so many healthy, beloved, elderly relatives that they couldn’t imagine life any other way.”https://archive.fo/DC44hhttps://news.heart.org/aha-president-stable-condition-heart-attack/

WikiLeaks Told Trump Jr. Seth Rich Was DNC Leaker
Julian Assange confirmed to Donald Trump Jr. that Seth Rich was the person who leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.
In a direct message conversation between Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks – Assange points Trump to a website with a header that states: “My Name Was Seth Rich.”
“Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us,” WikiLeaks said in the conversation, directing Trump to visit “wlsearch.tk.”
Here is the entire chain of messages with @wikileaks (with my whopping 3 responses) which one of the congressional committees has chosen to selectively leak. How ironic! 1/3 pic.twitter.com/SiwTqWtykA
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) November 14, 2017https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/930228239494209536/photo/1
When you click on the side menu, the only option is a category titled “Seth Rich.” The link takes users to a page that reads, “You finally found me! I’m the source of the John Podesta/DNC Email hacks. I’ve been waiting so long for you to join me.”
The message makes it clear that the site has been edited since the conversation by referring to the exchange with Trump Jr. It is unclear if the site was hacked or if it was deliberately edited by someone associated with WikiLeaks.
“Thanks to Wikileaks and Trump Jr you’ll all soon know why Hillary Clinton and John Podesta had me killed,” the website reads. “As you can see I’m no Russian agent. I was just a proud DNC staffer who believed in the system until I found out Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against my candidate Bernie Sanders. That’s when I decided to take action and release these emails to Wikileaks.”
The home page continues on to assert that “John Podesta was determined to make an example out of me and had me taken care of. Why did you think they didn’t let the FBI examine the DNC servers? Yep, those servers would have lead them straight to me. John couldn’t let that happen.”
The website continues on to claim that Podesta is a pedophile.
“Thanks again Wikileaks for upping my reward to solve my murder. I wonder why you’d do that for me? Oh, you are trying to tell the world I was your source. Whoops cat’s outta the bag now,” the page concludes.
WikiLeaks made headlines in 2016 when they offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murderer of the slain DNC staffer. The website’s founder Julian Assange also mentioned Rich during an appearance on Dutch television.
“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,” Assange said during an interview with Dutch TV last year. When asked by the host if he would suggest that Rich was involved, he stated that “we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.”
Additionally, Assange sent out an ominous tweet using the hashtag #SethRich. He asserted that while he would never name a leaker, sometimes others may.
WikiLeaks has never disclosed a source. Sources sometimes talk to other parties but identities never emerge from WikiLeaks. #SethRich

Rich was shot in the back in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend — 12 days before the publication of the DNC emails by the controversial publisher. The police initially ruled that it was a 'botched robbery' — but his wallet, watch, and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.https://archive.fo/9sQBBhttp://yournewswire.com/wikileaks-trump-seth-rich-dnc/

Trump Picks Drug Industry Bandit For HHS Secretary
Trump’s choice for Health and Human Services director is corporate predator Alex Azar - former president of Lilly USA LLC, Eli Lilly’s largest affiliate company.
In 2012, he headed Lilly’s US operations, was also involved in its international and government affairs work.
Earlier he was GW Bush’s deputy HHS secretary. In 1991, he earned a law degree from Yale, clerked for an appeals court justice, then Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia from 1992 - 1993.
During Ken Starr’s Whitewater investigation, he served in his Office of the Independent Counsel. He practiced law for Washington-based Wiley, Rein and Fielding until 2001, becoming a partner in the firm.
From 2001 - 2005, he was HHS general counsel - for two more years in the department as deputy HHS secretary in an administrative capacity - supervising operations for food and drugs, Medicare, Medicaid, medical research, public health, welfare, child and family services, disease prevention, Indian health, mental health services, emergency preparedness and response.
The FDA, Medicare and Medicaid Services, National Institutes of Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported to him.
He was a member of various administration agencies, including the White House Homeland Security Council and National Economic Council.
He serves on various corporate and other boards. On November 13, Trump nominated him to head HHS. He requires Senate confirmation - rubber-stamp given his background.
The agency is responsible for “(i)mproving the health, safety and well-being of Americans.” Yet Azar isn’t an MD, has layman medical knowledge only.
He has no experience in public health, HHS’ main division, responsible for protecting the health of the nation and its citizens. He has no biomedical science background.
His experience is law practice and business - in the drug industry for the past decade, including on the BIO board of directors, an industry lobby.
Earlier at HHS, he was a lawyer/administrator, uninvolved in health issues, what the agency is all about.
Rhetorically he supports lower drug prices. At Lilly, he raised them as much as the market would bear, making them increasingly unaffordable for low and middle income Americans.
They pay the world’s higher prices for prescription drugs - far greater than consumers in other developed and underdeveloped countries.
Azar supports repealing and replacing Obamacare, backs nightmarish Trumpcare.

Former Joe Biden Secret Service Agent: We Had to Protect Women From Him, “Weinstein Level Stuff”
A former Secret Service agent assigned to the Vice President Joe Biden residence claims that the Service often had to protect female agents from him.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, “We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.” The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family.
“He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said.
According to the source, a Secret Service agent once got suspended for a week in 2009 for shoving Biden after he cupped his girlfriend’s breast while the couple was taking a photo with him. The situation got so heated, the source told Cassandra Fairbanks, that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President.
Additionally, the agent claims that Biden would walk around the VP residence naked at night. “I mean, Stark naked… Weinstein level stuff,” he added.
He said that the men on duty would frequently stand in front of female agents and Navy women that were present “like a damn guardian.” On some occasions, they would make up reasons to get the women away from where he was.
The agent said he was specifically concerned about women in the Navy.
“They weren’t allowed to disobey him at all, but we’d take them away under pretend auspices,” the agent stated.
Best-selling author Ronald Kessler wrote about Biden’s problem with female agents in his book The First Family Detail.
“Agents say that, whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude,” Kessler wrote. “Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”
Our source confirmed this sentiment, adding that “it was especially an issue at his Delaware house that he would go to every weekend.”
“He would only get naked when Jill was absent,” he added.https://archive.fo/ZArLohttp://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/11/exclusive-former-joe-biden-secret-service-agent-protect-women-weinstein-level-stuff/

Media Blackout: Millions Of Spanish Protest Fascist Government
Millions of Spanish citizens have taken to the streets in Spain to protest the fascist move by the government to ignore the will of the people of Catalan.
The unprecedented protest, which has been completely ignored by the mainstream media, demands that the Spanish government immediately release the Catalan political prisoners and recognise the will of the Catalonian people.
“Look at all the people here! The independence movement is still going strong,” Pep Morales, a 63-year-old independence protester told reporters as he called for the release of Catalan’s leaders from prison.
Thegatewaypundit.com reports: As a report from The Guardian noted in October, the Spanish government “took control of Catalonia, dissolved its parliament and announced new elections after secessionist Catalan MPs voted to establish an independent republic.” Then in November, a judge ordered eight members of the deposed Catalan government to be arrested pending charges for their involvement in the declaration of independence.
The blatant and ongoing corruption within Spain’s government has been both ignored and even justified by the mainstream media. As WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange noted, while the crowd of protesters reached nearly 1 million people, it was portrayed by the local media as an insignificant, regular protest.
“Watch this video of last night’s protest of around a million people calling for Spain to release Catalan political prisoners,” Assange wrote. “Then follow this link to see how this vast crowd was depicted on the front pages of Spain’s biggest ‘newspapers.’”

— Julian Assange 🔹 (@JulianAssange) November 12, 2017
In addition to using photos that failed to show the sheer magnitude of the crowd, the Spanish newspapers referenced by Assange also used titles such as “Catalonia Must Recover the Law, Coexistence and Truth,”“End of the Process,” “The Decapitated Separatism,” and “Most Catalans Support the Advancement of Elections.”
When one Twitter user questioned how there could possibly have been 1 million protesters, another user responded with a map showing where the protests occurred and wrote, “Yes… More than a million.”

German Homeless Population Explodes In 2016 As Deliberate Destabilization Takes Its Toll
According to a recent estimate published by the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, the number of homeless people living on Germany’s streets has risen by 33% in a matter of just a couple of years, to 52,000. Meanwhile, as The Local notes, the number of Germans who can't afford their own home and have been forced to rely on the generosity of family and friends for a place to sleep every night has also risen a staggering 26%, to over 400,000 people.
In 2016 an estimated 52,000 people were living on German streets, an increase of a third on the 39,000 people who were living rough in 2014.
The report also claims that the overall number of people in Germany who don’t have their own home has risen sharply, from 335,000 in 2014 to 422,000 last year.
Most of the people who don’t have their own homes live in collective accommodation or have to rely on the charity of partners or family.
Of course, German officials have offered up a wide range of potential explanations for the country's exploding homelessness crisis, with Thomas Specht, head of the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, blaming restricted housing supply, rising rents and stagnant wages.
“The numbers presented today on homelessness are shocking,” said Ulrike Mascher, President of the VdK social association.
“In our view this proves that ever more people are unable to pay their rents because of low wages and over-indebtedness.”
Thomas Specht, head of the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, said that rising rents were just one cause of the negative development.
He pointed out that since 1990 the number of council flats had dropped by 60 percent to 1.2 million, because local councils had sold off many properties to private investors.
“The authorities have lost control of the stock of affordable housing,” he said.
That said, others have pointed the finger at Angela Merkel's "Open Doors" policy which admitted nearly one million refugees from Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and other war zones in 2015, a five-fold increase over the previous year.
Unfortunately, while the public backlash finally convinced Merkel that Germany could not take on all of the world's problems, resulting in a decision to cap future refugees admittances at 200,000 per year.
...Merkel's epiphany apparently didn't come quickly enough to stave off a housing crisis that is now pushing German citizens onto the streets in record numbers.https://archive.fo/zO2zUhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-14/german-homeless-population-explodes-one-third-2016-migrant-crisis-takes-its-toll

Al Franken Throws Tantrum, Screaming For Government To Outlaw 1st Amendment, Free Speech
Advancing the Democratic Party’s new-found McCarthyism over the theme of “Russian Collusion,” Sen. Al Franken authored an op-ed piece in the Guardian last week asking for government censorship over Internet media content giants Google, Facebook and Twitter.https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/nov/08/big-tech-security-freedoms-democracy-al-franken
Yet, in the face of this concrete evidence, Franken seems determined to continue beating the New McCarthyism narrative advanced by Hillary Clinton and her Democratic Party supporters to explain away her devastating 2016 loss to Donald Trump.
Franken argued Hillary’s loss demanded government censorship over social media on the Internet. He wrote the following:
"Last week’s hearings demonstrated that these companies may not be up to the challenge that they’ve created for themselves. In some instances, it seems that they’ve failed to take commonsense precautions to prevent the spread of propaganda, misinformation, and hate speech."
In advancing his argument for government censorship, Franken asked the following rhetorical questions:
"The platforms that big tech has designed may now be so large and unruly that we can’t trust the companies to get it right when they do start paying attention. If you have five million advertisers a month using your highly sophisticated, nearly instantaneous ad platform, can you ever really know who all of them are? Can you ever catch all the signals that would seem obvious to a pair of human eyes – for example, political ads that are paid for in rubles?"
Franken got immediate push-back from Michael Snyder, a Republican candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, who penned a rebuttal in EndOfTheAmericanDream.com.http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/the-internet-crackdown-begins-u-s-senator-al-franken-wants-google-facebook-and-twitter-to-censor-political-speech
“These are very ominous words,” Snyder insisted. “So precisely what would constitute ‘propaganda,’ ‘misinformation’ or ‘hate speech’?”
Snyder pushed back, suggesting Franken’s motive really involved a plan by hard-left Democrats to censor the speech of conservatives and libertarians on the Internet, so as to create a wide-open social media field in which even two-time losers like Hillary Clinton might win the presidency in 2020.
Snyder argued that government censorship constituted a serious risk to First Amendment free speech rights. He wrote:
"When you start regulating speech, you cross a very dangerous line. There is a reason why our founders guaranteed us freedom of speech in the Bill of Rights, because if we don’t have the freedom to say what we want then what do we really have left?"
He argued the “government truth police” would lead us down the road to totalitarianism, a conclusion he judged is precisely what Franken wants. Snyder continued:
"During the presidential election, there was a lot of talk about Hillary Clinton’s health. The mainstream media insisted that she was just fine, and they accused those of us in the alternative media that were questioning her health of engaging in “propaganda” and “misinformation”. Well, it turns out that we now know that Clinton’s health was so bad that Donna Brazile was actually considering replacing the nominee, and so it was actually the mainstream media that was putting out “propaganda” and “misinformation.” "https://archive.fo/xuwqmhttps://www.infowars.com/sen-franken-demands-social-media-censorship-over-russian-collusion/

America Last: Senate Committee Votes in Favor of Pro-Amnesty DHS Nominee Kristjen Nielsen
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) voted 11-4 to approve President Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen Tuesday, passing the avowedly pro-amnesty candidate on to a vote of the full Senate.
Voting in Neilsen’s favor were all eight Republicans on the panel, including “Gang of Eight” amnesty plot ringleader Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and “conservative Dream Act” amnesty proponent Sen. James Lankford. Joining them were red state Democrats Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), John Tester (D-MT), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND). The only four opposing votes were from liberal Democrats like Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI).
Neilsen, whom bestselling conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter called, “an open borders zealot,” is now only one successful vote away from overseeing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
As Breitbart News has reported throughout her confirmation process, Nielsen has a well-documented history of supporting amnesty, going so far as to tell HSGAC that America “owes” amnesty to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens covered by President Barack Obama’s likely-unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in her first confirmation hearing. Long-time immigration hawk Rep. Steve King (R-IA) tweeted that the remark “disqualified” Nielsen from leading DHS.
Nielsen’s history of opposing populist-nationalist immigration policy in favor of open borders globalism extends beyond America’s borders. Last year, she led a committee of the World Economic Forum, a pro-business interest group made up largely of multinational corporations in Davos, Switzerland. Her committee’s report, called “Global Agenda Council on Risk & Resilience,” recommended that Europe must accept the massive influx of third world migrants flooding the continent. “Change the narrative on refugees’ impact in host countries: Active steps should be taken to reframe the discourse on refugees from one of risk to one that also recognizes the substantial social and economic contribution they can make to their host societies,” the report urged.
Immigration restictionist groups were largely outraged by President Trump’s selection of Nielsen. By contrast, support for Nielsen’s nomination was high among the so-called “Never Trumpers” of the GOP’s legacy national security ranks. On learning Nielson would be prepped for her hearings by Bush-era official Thad Bingel, NumbersUSA’s Rosemary Jenks told Breitbart News, “We elected Trump. We did not elect a Bush. We specifically rejected the Bush dynasty. We don’t need a Bush Republican at DHS.”
Nielsen herself was a Bush administration staffer. She came to President Trump’s attention through White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. She now serves as his deputy and, before that, was his chief of staff at DHS.https://archive.fo/l20LPhttp://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/14/senate-committee-votes-in-favor-of-pro-amnesty-dhs-nominee-kristjen-nielsen/

Great Sovereign Nation of Poland: Breed Like Rabbits To Solve Declining Population, Reject Amnesty!
Unlike the Islamic terror-ridden hellhole that is now Germany; with a leadership which believes mass migration from brutal third world countries is the only way to solve their demographic decline; Poland is encouraging couples to make their own citizens by ‘breeding like rabbits’, with the help of an educational video from the Polish health ministry.
Stopping short of a tutorial of baby making, the 30-second video put out by the National Health Programme opens with a field of rabbits and closes with a shot of a lovestruck couple enjoying a picnic, with a bunny seen popping out of a picnic basket.
“We rabbits know how to take care of our many offspring,” says the narrator, from the point of view of a rabbit, who then advises viewers to exercise, eat healthily, do not get stressed out, and “if you want to become a parent one day, take the example of rabbits”.
Poland’s “do it yourself” approach runs contrary to communistic fascistic progressive concepts disseminated by left-wing media despots, with Time magazine promoting the “child free” life, and National Geographic suggesting the “New Europeans”, who entered the continent during the 2015 migrant crisis, are the future of Europe.
The Ministry of Health website reads: “We want everyone… to be more aware of how their behaviour affects their health. The aim of the programme is to help Poles lead healthier lives (and make healthy choices) and be able to enjoy health and full wellbeing, participation in work, social and family life.”
The campaign comes after a similar initiative in Denmark, which aimed to counteract the increasing number of young couples remaining childless.
Poland, which rejects mass migration and the associated rise in crime, sexual assaults, terrorism, and integration problems witnessed in Western European countries, has seen its fertility rate fall from three children per woman in 1960 to 1.3 in 2015, according to World Bank figures.https://archive.fo/klrvQhttp://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/11/09/poland-declining-birth-rate-mass-migration-have-babies/

Gun-controlled California: Multiple Dead, Children Shot In School Shooting
A reported shooting in northern California has left at least three people dead in Tehema County, California.
The Tehama County Sheriff’s Office says the shooting happened at an elementary school in Rancho Tehama around 8:00 am. local time. Rancho Tehama is about 115 miles north of the state capital of Sacramento.
A Corning Unified School district employee confirmed there were injuries at the school.
Police are investigating at least five crime scenes. At least 100 law enforcement officers have responded to the crime scenes.
Children have been moved from the school to a safe location.
A man spoke with KCRA’s affiliate Action News Now and said that his truck was stolen and his roommate was shot and killed by the gunman.
“He’s dead. He didn’t make it,” the witness said. “For his family and everything, I feel bad, and we’ll be there for them.”
“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” he added.
“This guy has been crazy, and he’s been threatening us and everything. I just feel like there maybe should have been more effort put into stopping things like this.”
Note that gun control has already been rolled out throughout California, and it is already prohibited to even own semi-autos. This of-course did not stop the terrorist from obtaining an illegal firearm and shooting up a school. This point will most certainly be ignored by communist officials and the Mainstream media.https://archive.fo/NU797https://www.infowars.com/breaking-multiple-dead-children-shot-in-california-school-shooting/

Dickhead New Hampshire Lawmaker Equates Homeschooling To 'Child Abuse', Wants Govt To Ban Homeschooling
In 2012, the State of New Hampshire passed a measure that eased the state’s intervention into the operations of homeschooling families by reducing the number of filings parents would have to submit in order to get state approval for their efforts to educate their children. This move, according to Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), reduced the amount of notices homeschooling parents would have to submit from 3 to just 1 and has produced no negative problems since becoming law.
Now, about five years after the 2012 measure was passed, state lawmakers are eyeing up a plan to roll back the efforts to ease state intervention by requiring third-party oversight of homeschooling operations.
The attack on the 2012 measure was spearheaded by one lawmaker’s demonization of homeschooling as “child abuse” and claims that homeschool is failing some children.
Besides “child abuse,” homeschooling there also has been condemned with comments like, “Half the kids are failing to learn,” and “it’s a floodgate for dropouts,” HSLDA reported.
“Recent comments like these reveal antagonism toward homeschool among certain factions in the New Hampshire legislature, explaining why we appear headed toward a legislative battle over homeschool freedoms,” the group revealed Friday.
It said reports are that three lawmakers are preparing plans to “roll back improvements,” and discussion already has begun.
“Witnesses tell us that in an executive session on a controversial bill relating to banning ‘conversion therapy’ for children experiencing gender confusion, senior Democratic lawmaker Marjorie Porter categorically compared homeschooling to child abuse,” the HSLDA said.
According to sources present at the executive session in the New Hampshire House of Representatives Committee on Health and Human Services on October 26, many people were shocked to hear the legislator’s comments, especially in that context.
“Others told HSLDA that Rep. William Marsh, a Republican member of the committee whose four oldest children graduated from the family’s homeschool and went on to top-tier colleges, and whose youngest is homeschooling through high school, told Rep. Porter that he considered her comments equating homeschooling with child abuse as a personal affront. He subsequently received a public apology from Rep. Porter, who is assistant minority floor leader in the House,” an HSLDA report said.
Although those who push the nanny state line of only looking out for the child’s welfare seems like a loving effort on the surface, it is against the rights of the parents to be the sole decision maker for their child. Parents who wish to separate the state from their child’s education do so in order to implement what they believe is the most effective way to set their child on a path to success. Once the state steps in to maintain what the bureaucrats believe is the proper way to educate a child, there is a conflict of interests and a diminishing of basic rights at hand.
The nanny state mentality is what has led to the erosion of civil liberties in the United States over the past couple decades. The more we desire the state intervene in our personal life, the less responsibility we carry for ourselves and the large the burden of government grows.
Parents who wish to educate their children in the manner they see fit should be praised for their desire to impose the beliefs they hold dear and the knowledge they see as important on their child.https://archive.fo/3Fp7chttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-14/new-hampshire-lawmaker-equates-homeschooling-child-abuse-nanny-state-be-pushed-paren

Leader of Saudi Purge Calls For End of Sharia Law, End of Islamic Subjugation, Better Relations With Nation States
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has made the world a bold promise: under his watch, Riyadh will enter the 21st century.
Bin Salman (commonly referred to by his initials, MBS) has insisted his nation will remain a close ally of the United States and, judging from reports, has only used his recently created corruption commission against extremists within the ranks of government. “We will not waste 30 years of our lives in dealing with extremist ideas. We will destroy them today,” he vowed in remarks this October.
A month later, Saudi police have detained over 200 people – including key business leaders, government officials, and princes – for participating in “systematic corruption and embezzlement.” Reports have identified many of these as extremists with ties to the most hard-line clerics in the nation, however, the Saudi government does not identify those it arrests until after a trial takes place.
While the call to end decades of Sharia rule will inspire hope in Washington, President Donald Trump must not take for granted that Western-style classical liberalism will follow. When the arrests end, paving the way for a “moderate Islam,” Trump must be present to compel the Saudi government to create a free society – and prepared for the hard sell on “socialism with Chinese characteristics” from Beijing.
That danger appears acuter given the resemblance of MBS’s anti-corruption brigade to the Chinese Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, responsible for the arrests of thousands of Chinese officials for a variety of crimes ranging from hosting weddings considered too lavish for the Communist Party to accepting bribes from private industry. While the ends of both operations differ significantly – MBS appears to be seeking to diminish Wahhabist influences, while Xi Jinping clearly meant to cement his stranglehold on power – the means are uncannily similar.https://archive.fo/juhD2http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/11/13/us-supports-saudi-arabia-push-21st-century-china-waits-chance-strike/

Evil: Commiefornia Authorities Demands That Church Stops Feeding the Homeless
Just another example of the utter contempt and hatered 'democratic' communists have for poor Americans starving in the streets.
Here is an older report detailing how uber-rich beurocrats have responded to the poverty crisis in American cities: https://archive.fo/7GNRB
Authorities in California have demanded that a Church in Malibu stops offering hot meals to the city’s homeless.
The United Methodist Church has been giving away 100 meals every week since 2014.
CBS News reports: https://archive.fo/Iihqs
But now, the food service will come to an end after Thanksgiving at the city’s request.
“It’s a safe place,” said Michah Johnson, who is homeless. “And everyone is welcome. And the food is really good. It’s home-cooked. And there’s TLC involved.”
“The church is very helpful,” he added. “They keep my spirits up. They keep me accountable. When you’re homeless, it’s very easy to slip off and become jaded.”
The church says the city sent an email asking members to attend a meeting on Monday, where they were asked to stop feeding the homeless.
“Very succinctly,” said Dawn Randall, who works with the United Methodist Church. “They claimed we are increasing homelessness.”
“I think many of them eat out of dumpsters and trash cans when they aren’t eating with us,” said Kay Gabbard, who also works with the United Methodist Church. “We can’t pretend like (homelessness) doesn’t exist in our backyard. We can’t pretend that it only exists outside Malibu.”
CBS Los Angeles reached out to Malibu’s mayor for a comment. They have yet to hear back.https://archive.fo/6qLQ3http://yournewswire.com/california-authorities-demands-that-church-stops-feeding-the-homeless/

The New Arctic Silk Road: A Huge Leap Forward For China And Russia
The Silk Road, renamed the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), is developing infrastructure along land and sea trade routes. However, little is known about China’s initiative in the Arctic Circle, which represents a new route that Beijing is now able to develop thanks to technology together with the strategic partnership with Russia.
Involving about 65 countries and affecting 4.4 billion people, constituting thirty percent of the world's GDP, together with a total investment from Beijing that could surpass a trillion dollars, this is an immense project that requires a lot of imagination to grasp the intentions of the Chinese leadership. With a host of projects already in progress, and some almost completed (the Sino-Pakistan Corridor known as CPEC is archetypical), the overland and maritime routes are developing side by side. Plenty of ink has been used detailing Beijing's intentions regarding the East-West connections of the super Eurasian continent. Pipelines, railway lines, fiber-optic cables, telecommunications infrastructure and highways dominate discussions, together with talks about costs, feasibility studies, the question of security, and the return on investment. The land Silk Road is certainly an imposing challenge that is not just commercial in nature but sets the foundation for greater cultural and social integration between neighbouring countries. It is a project that in the long term aims to blend together the Eurasian continent and overcome the contradictions contained therein through win-win cooperation and economic development.
The maritime route is a more structured project, tied mainly to two intrinsic needs of the People's Republic of China. The first is commercial and concerns the need for Beijing to ship its goods along established routes, creating ports and supply facilities along the way. The objective is to increase profits from cargo ships, especially when they return to China filled with goods, as well as to create new global sorting centers at ports set up along the maritime silk road. Important examples can be found in Pakistan with the development of the Gwadar port. The first phase was completed in 2006, and the second has been in progress since 2007, though the port was inaugurated in November 2016 and has been operational since. The project should be completed in the coming decades, with potentially 45 anchorage points, drainage of the approaching canal to about 20 meters, and a total trade turnover of over 400 million tonnes. The major benefit of this arrangement is to divide goods according to necessity, value and supply, choosing between an overland or maritime route. The port of Gwadar is connected principally through pipelines to the Chinese city of Kashi. This is a great example of how diversification can be achieved with the maritime route, used mainly for transportable goods, while the Gwadar port becomes an important hub in the oil and gas trade, especially thanks to progress in methane and regasification technology.

Cruel, Cruel Commiefornia: Innocent Parents Become Victims of Police State, Face Arrest For Refusing Vaccinations
A mother in California was harassed by police and later threatened with arrest for her decision to not vaccinate her child.
As Porsha Rasheed walked her children to the bus stop one morning, she was approached by an official from the Claremont school district who was accompanied by a police officer.
They began questioning her about whether or not her children had been vaccinated.
When she refused to answer and started recording the interaction they walked away…. But that wasn’t the end of it.
Later when she called the police department to complain about what had happened, she was told that she could be arrested for refusing to vaccinate her children.https://archive.fo/eBJsp
The video has already been watched more than 159,000 times, and we need to get this out to as many people as we possibly can.
The following is the description that Porsha Rasheed posted along with the video…
"Please watch this Video and share I am. I am being set up by the Claremont school district to be arrested and they are trying to force me to give my child immunization shots! I woke up this morning and walked my kids to the bus stop like I always do. Guess who was waiting the Claremont police department along with another man asking me about my child’s shots! I called the police department to make a complaint for harassment and was told by the sergeant, that me not giving my kids shots is a criminal act and that I will be arrested. This is why they were at the bus stop to try to incriminate me by me attempting to them that my son does not have any shots. This is crazy!! I want the world to know if I am arrested this is why! I will follow up with the facts!!!!"
This is the kind of thing that health freedom advocates were warning would happen in California.
In 2016, a new law went into effect that mandates that all children be fully vaccinated unless they have been granted a medical exemption.
Fortunately, some doctors are fighting back against this draconian new law by granting medical exemptions to parents that do not want to submit to forced vaccination.
The vaccine industry considers California’s new law to be a model for the nation, and they are going to push hard to get laws like this in all 50 states.https://archive.fo/nDshV

Fourth Reich: EU Signs Agreement To Ditch NATO And Launch European Army
The European Union has signed an agreement which will see EU member states ditch NATO and launch a European army to replace it.
Permanent Structured Cooperation, or PESCO, was signed by 23 out of the 28 EU member states.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini supported the move, hailing it as an “historic moment.” Backed by a €5-billion ($6.5-billion) EU defense fund, PESCO “will enable member states to use the economy of scale of Europe and in this manner to fulfil the gap of output that we have.”
The agreement signed by 23 defense ministers in Brussels will come into force in December, after which members will be legally bound to participate in projects under PESCO.
Work on the agreement started last year amid uncertainty over the UK’s decision to withdraw from the European Union, and US President Donald Trump’s continued criticism of European NATO members for failing to deliver on defense-spending commitments.
European heavyweights Germany and France are leading the effort to bring the EU closer to having a permanent joint armed force. The UK, which has been opposing a pan-European military force for decades, is not part of the agreement. Denmark, Ireland, Portugal, and Malta opted out; while Austria, not a member of NATO, agreed to join at the last moment.https://archive.fo/OWFjMhttp://yournewswire.com/eu-ditch-nato-european-army/

German Populist Party AfD Calls For Repatriation of Syrian Refugees
The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party called on Thursday for the repatriation of half a million Syrian refugees living in Germany, saying the war there was nearly over and that President Bashar al-Assad had urged refugees to return home.
Earlier on Thursday, Syria's army declared victory over Islamic State, saying its capture of the jihadists' last town in the country marked the collapse of their three-year, hardline reign in the region.
The AfD's proposal for repatriating Syrian refugees is its first since it swept into Germany's lower house of parliament, the Bundestag, in September's federal election on an anti-immigrant platform.
It is the third largest party in the new Bundestag but the proposal is very unlikely to win approval as mainstream parties including Chancellor Angela Merkel's communists the biggest bloc, have refused to work with the AfD.
In its proposal, the AfD said the new German government should immediately start talks with Syrian authorities over a deal to repatriate the refugees.
"This deal should ensure that the returnees will be accepted in Syria and accommodated only in safe areas," the AfD said in a statement adding that Damascus must guarantee not to persecute citizens who escaped the military draft.
This of-course will likely not happen, unless German voters throw Merkel's regime out next election and vote the AfD party in. Merkel's party (the CDU) has been a complete disaster for Germany and it's citizens. Record unemployment rates, record poverty, routine terror attacks, rape and murder epidemic due to deliberate destabilization policies, attacks on traditional German culture, gun confiscation, massive militarized police state, and it's domestic policy now dictated by a communist bloc (the EU).https://archive.fo/9vU2E

Another Holistic Doctor And Her Family Murdered, Now Marks 77th Holistic Doctor Killed In Two Years
Dr. Annie Fairbanks, a holistic doctor in Arizona, was found shot dead in her home on Friday along with her husband, 3 year old daughter and 9 month old son.
She is the 77th holistic doctor to have been found dead under mysterious circumstances over the past couple of years.
Within hours of the shooting Scottsdale Police Department spokesman, Sgt. Ben Hoster, claimed that Jason Fairbanks must have killed his wife and children before turning the gun on himself.
The police have refused to investigate any further. Are Big Pharma companies hiring mercenaries to do wetwork against their competition and are corrupt police officials being bribed to cover this up?
The family is said to have lived in a relatively safe neighborhood. After Jason was absent from work, one of his fellow workers drove over to his home and made the grisly discovery. It is believed that the couple was in financial trouble related to a failing physical rehabilitation center they co-owned. Annie Fairbanks was a Master CHEK Practitioner as well as a holistic nutrition doctor.
While Jason Fairbanks has been determined by police to be the killer, according to a report in azcentral, Jason’s sister described her brother as more of a “protector.”
“He loved his family so much,” Laura Fairbanks said. “He wasn’t a bad person.”
She went on to describe him as an obsessively hard worker and did confirm that she believed the family was experiencing financial difficulties.
“I just wished he had asked for help,” she said. “Jason could make people laugh in ways you never thought you could. He was an extraordinary big brother.”
Laura also said that Dr. Annie Fairbanks had an amazing presence and nature about her. She said she was always wearing a smile.
“When you were around her, she just made you feel all right,” she said. “It was just her presence.”
“They moved in together, and a year and a half later they were married,” Laura said. “Boy, she loved those kids. She loved them so much.”https://archive.fo/sKEShttp://yournewswire.com/another-holistic-doctor-found-dead/

German Government Official Admits To Supporting Regime Change In Poland
A diplomatic spat has developed between Berlin and Warsaw after the German Defense Minister said that her country should support the “democratic resistance of the young generation” in Poland.
See why: >>>/news/3065
This scandalous remark from Germany’s top military official immediately led to a strong rebuke from all levels of the Polish government, which rightly interpreted her statement as an implied threat to aid the Soros-linked Color Revolutionaries in their quest to carry out a regime change in the Central European country.
As an overly simplified backgrounder, the ruling Law & Justice conservative party has been working to cleanse Poland’s permanent bureaucracy, or “deep state”, of the holdovers that their Civil Platform liberal predecessors had hurriedly stacked into government in a last-ditch attempt to derail their opponents’ legislative agenda until the next election. This is very similar to what the Democrats have been doing against Trump, but it’s just that PiS, which is the Polish abbreviation that the Law & Justice party is popularly known by, has been comparatively more successful than their allied American counterpart, hence why there’s been a proportionate increase in foreign support to the Color Revolution movement in response.
Germany hates PiS because party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski’s ideology of “EuroRealism” contrasts with Merkel’s “EuroLiberalism” in every way, from dealing with the migrant crisis to the future organization of the EU as a whole. PiS is even being sued by Brussels because of its refusal to accept the forcible relocation of even a single Muslim migrant, and its ambitious “Three Seas Initiative” aims to consolidate a new power bloc in Central and Eastern Europe in order to oppose Germany’s post-Brexit centralization initiative for the EU in favor of a more hands-off and reformed approach that respects the national sovereignty of the bloc’s members. It’s long been suspected that Berlin was backing the anti-government movement in Poland, and the country’s media has reported on this for nearly two years already, but the German Defense Minister’s sloppy statement on TV seemed to present the strongest confirmation yet that this is indeed truly the case.
This diplomatic spat will probably soon die down, but the damage that it wrought to bilateral relations won’t likely go away so long as PiS continues to govern Poland, which might be for the foreseeable future seeing as how they secured the country’s largest-ever anti-communist electoral victory in 2015.https://archive.fo/euAmyhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-12/germany-clumsily-admits-supporting-regime-change-poland

Prince Charles Fingers The Jew: Zionism To Blame For Middle East Crisis
Prince Charles has blamed Zionism for the woes of the Middle East, claiming the Arab-Israeli conflict can be traced back to the creation of Israel.
In a newly released letter dating back to 1986, Prince Charles wrote that he blamed the “influx of foreign, European Jews” for aggravating the Arab-Israeli conflict, voicing hope that an American president would one day have the “courage to stand up to the Jewish lobby”.
Rt.com reports: “I now appreciate that Arabs and Jews were all a Semitic people originally,” the then 38-year-old Prince of Wales wrote in his letter, adding, that “it is the influx of foreign, European Jews (especially from Poland, they say) which has helped to cause great problems” in the Middle East. “I know there are so many complex issues, but how can there ever be an end to terrorism unless the causes are eliminated?” he questioned.
“Surely some US president has to have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby in the US? I must be naive, I suppose!” he concludes. The Editor of the Jewish Chronicle, Stephen Pollard, described Charles’ comments “both shocking and entirely predictable.”
Both shocking and entirely predictable https://t.co/Ftm3TqvWL5
— Stephen Pollard (@stephenpollard) November 12, 2017
A Clarence House spokesperson said the thoughts, expressed in the 1986 letter, were actually “not The Prince’s own views.”
“The letter clearly states these were not the Prince’s own thinking on Arab-Israeli affairs, but represented the opinions of some of those he met during his visit which he was keen to interrogate,” the statement said.
It added that Prince Charles was simply “sharing the arguments in private correspondence,” in a bid “to improve his understanding of what he has always recognized is a deeply complex issue.”https://archive.fo/rgrszhttp://yournewswire.com/prince-charles-zionism-middle-east/

More Governmental Incompetence: US Army Decides Its A Good Idea To Recruit Bipolars, Drug Addicts
People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.
The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year's goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.
Expanding the waivers for mental health is possible in part because the Army now has access to more medical information about each potential recruit, Lt. Col. Randy Taylor, an Army spokesman, said in a statement. The Army issued the ban on waivers in 2009 amid an epidemic of suicides among troops.
“The decision was primarily due to the increased availability of medical records and other data which is now more readily available,” Taylor's statement to USA TODAY said. “These records allow Army officials to better document applicant medical histories.”
But accepting recruits with those mental health conditions in their past carries risks, according to Elspeth Ritchie, a psychiatrist who retired from the Army as a colonel in 2010 and is an expert on waivers for military service. People with a history of mental health problems are more likely to have those issues resurface than those who do not, she said.
“It is a red flag,” she said. “The question is, how much of a red flag is it?”
Accepting recruits with poor qualifications can cause problems. In 2006, for example, an Iraqi girl was raped and her family killed by U.S. soldiers, one of whom required waivers for minor criminal activity and poor educational background to join the Army.https://archive.fo/mB6fbhttps://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/11/12/army-lifts-ban-recruits-history-self-mutilation-other-mental-health-issues/853131001/

World’s Largest Corporations End Contributions To Clinton Foundation
A new report by the International Business Times suggests the Clinton Foundation is under severe financial strain after the world’s largest corporations have ended all contributions to the corrupt organization.
Major corporations that have halted all donations to the Clinton Foundation since President Trump won the White House include “Boeing, Chevron, Daimler Trucks North America, Dell, Duke Energy, General Electric, Humana, Lockheed Martin and UPS.”
From the IB Times: https://archive.fo/n1J5X
"Most of the companies that have previously donated to the Clinton Foundation didn’t contribute in the second quarter of 2017, according to the organization’s website, although some, including Acxiom Corporation, BTIG LLC, Google and Starkey Hearing Technologies, have. Cities, countries, foundations and other nonprofits also donate to the foundation, and some contributed in 2017.
It’s impossible to know precisely what’s happened to Clinton Foundation fundraising in the year since Secretary Clinton lost. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the foundation submits financial information to the Internal Revenue Service once per year, and information on both 2016 and 2017 is not yet publicly available. But International Business Times contacted nearly 50 major corporations that had previously donated to the foundation, asking if they had made new contributions after the 2016 presidential campaign. Thirty of them did not respond or declined to comment on the questions. Of the 18 that did, all said they had not made new donations."
Reports of corporations turning their back on the foundation come amid a report largely ignored by the mainstream media, where hedge fund manager and self-described Wall Street whistleblower, Charles Ortel, alleges the Clinton Foundation purposely hid payments attached to the now infamous ‘Russia-Uranium One’ deal.
Jerome Corsi reports:
To stress the gravity of the Clinton Foundation’s Russian Uranium One scandal, Ortel told Infowars.comthat he believes Clinton Foundation financial reports are criminally fraudulent in failing to report payments received in relation to the Russian Uranium One Scandal.
[…]Take 2009 results , for example, completed during 2010,” Ortel argued. “You will not find combining results for the Clinton Foundation, by “Initiative” on the Clinton Foundation website as these are purposefully omitted. But you will find these key results on versions of the required audit that are obtained here in New York (punch in EIN: 31-1580204) and look at the 2009 filing.” […]“These show total contributions (normally these are from the general public) of $82.9 million and total grants (normally these are from governments and from foundations) of $162.9 million,” he continued. “Focus on the column “CHAI” (Clinton Health Access Initiative) that shows contributions of $15.5 million of the combined total) and $159.7 in grants of the total). Clearly “CHAI” existed during 2009 as a material portion of the Clinton Foundation.”
Ortel then poses an important question to Corsi: “who contributed $159.7 million to “CHAI” in 2009?”
“By going here, we find that a Swiss NGO called UNITAID may have contributed $85 million during 2009,” Ortel then points out.
“There is no $85 million grant from UNITAID listed and there is no grant listed in 2009 that may have been routed through CGSGI from Russia or from any other source–in fact the combining statement shows $100 (not a typo) in contributions, and only $1.5 million in grants for ‘CGSGI,’” Ortel concludes.https://archive.fo/kqHvkhttp://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/11/report-clinton-foundation-severe-financial-strain-worlds-largest-corporations-end-contributions/

More Governmental Incompetence: Security Breaches and Spilled Secrets Leaves the NSA Baffled
A serial leak of the agency’s cyberweapons has damaged morale, slowed intelligence operations and resulted in hacking attacks on businesses and civilians worldwide.
Jake Williams awoke last April in an Orlando, Fla., hotel where he was leading a training session. Checking Twitter, Mr. Williams, a cybersecurity expert, was dismayed to discover that he had been thrust into the middle of one of the worst security debacles ever to befall American intelligence.
Mr. Williams had written on his company blog about the Shadow Brokers, a mysterious group that had somehow obtained many of the hacking tools the United States used to spy on other countries. Now the group had replied in an angry screed on Twitter. It identified him — correctly — as a former member of the National Security Agency’s hacking group, Tailored Access Operations, or T.A.O., a job he had not publicly disclosed. Then the Shadow Brokers astonished him by dropping technical details that made clear they knew about highly classified hacking operations that he had conducted.
America’s largest and most secretive intelligence agency had been deeply infiltrated.
“They had operational insight that even most of my fellow operators at T.A.O. did not have,” said Mr. Williams, now with Rendition Infosec, a cybersecurity firm he founded. “I felt like I’d been kicked in the gut. Whoever wrote this either was a well-placed insider or had stolen a lot of operational data.”
The jolt to Mr. Williams from the Shadow Brokers’ riposte was part of a much broader earthquake that has shaken the N.S.A. to its core. Current and former agency officials say the Shadow Brokers disclosures, which began in August 2016, have been catastrophic for the N.S.A., calling into question its ability to protect potent cyberweapons and its very value to national security. The agency regarded as the world’s leader in breaking into adversaries’ computer networks failed to protect its own.
“These leaks have been incredibly damaging to our intelligence and cyber capabilities,” said Leon E. Panetta, the former defense secretary and director of the Central Intelligence Agency. “The fundamental purpose of intelligence is to be able to effectively penetrate our adversaries in order to gather vital intelligence. By its very nature, that only works if secrecy is maintained and our codes are protected.”
With a leak of intelligence methods like the N.S.A. tools, Mr. Panetta said, “Every time it happens, you essentially have to start over.”
Fifteen months into a wide-ranging investigation by the agency’s counterintelligence arm, known as Q Group, and the F.B.I., officials still do not know whether the N.S.A. is the victim of a brilliantly executed hack, with Russia as the most likely perpetrator, an insider’s leak, or both. Three employees have been arrested since 2015 for taking classified files, but there is fear that one or more leakers may still be in place. And there is broad agreement that the damage from the Shadow Brokers already far exceeds the harm to American intelligence done by Edward J. Snowden, the former N.S.A. contractor who fled with four laptops of classified material in 2013.
Mr. Snowden’s cascade of disclosures to journalists and his defiant public stance drew far more media coverage than this new breach. But Mr. Snowden released code words, while the Shadow Brokers have released the actual code; if he shared what might be described as battle plans, they have loosed the weapons themselves. Created at huge expense to American taxpayers, those cyberweapons have now been picked up by hackers from North Korea to Russia and shot back at the United States and its allies.
“It’s a disaster on multiple levels,” Mr. Williams said. “It’s embarrassing that the people responsible for this have not been brought to justice.”https://archive.fo/MWwKohttps://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/12/us/nsa-shadow-brokers.html

Nationalist March For Poland’s Independence Day Draws 60,000
Thousands of far-right nationalists marched through Warsaw today, marring the country's Independence Day celebrations.
The march organized by far-right groups was one of a number of marches organized in the Polish capital, which was celebrating Poland's rebirth as an independent nation 99 years ago after it was wiped off the map for 123 years.
Today's Independence Day march was the largest in recent years, overshadowing other state and patriotic events.
The far-rights presence at the event was visible for all to see, with some holding up patriotic banners and chanting "death to communism!" One banner read 'White Europe of brotherly nations'.
Some marched under a banner which read 'We Want God', words from an old Polish song which Donald Trump quoted during his visit to the country earlier this year. Others spoke about standing up to radical leftists and defending Christianity.
Vast swathes of the crowd marched with the red-and-white flag while others let off red flares and firecrackers during their march.
Authorities also had to ensure that Soros-run AntiFA terrorists were kept away from patriotic demonstrators over fears their could be violent outbreaks.

Deliberate Destabilization: Globalist Bureaucrats In Conquered Paris France Shut Down of Christmas Markets
The Champs-Élysées Christmas market in Paris has been cancelled by City Hall councillors. It is considered the city’s main Christmas market and welcomes 15 million visitors every year.
According to a spokesperson of the City Hall, the French capital “wants to focus on offering visitors and Parisians more attractive and innovative events that will enhance the Champs-Élysées in a cultural and aesthetic dimension in keeping with this exceptional site”.
Since 2008 this market in Paris has been organised by Marcel Campion but due to a long-term dispute the contract was terminated this year.
According to Jean-François Martins, Deputy Mayor in charge of tourism at City Hall, the “market wasn’t good enough for Paris.”
But Mr. Champion denies that the market sells poor quality goods: “We have a six-year contract with the city which is being called into question after only two years”.
Isn’t it strange that a city that organises special Ramadan parties every year can’t organise a relatively simple Christmas market? Or is there something else going on?
Should the words of cultural and aesthetic dimensions actually be interpreted as: the market has to be more modern, multi-cultural and cosmopolitan, codewords for less Christian?
In a city with almost daily Muslim street prayers and a yearly Ramadan party it wouldn’t be surprising to anyone.https://archive.fo/TwB4khttps://voiceofeurope.com/2017/11/paris-cancels-christmas-market-holds-special-ramadan-party-every-year/

DHS Plans To Release Chemical Weapons For 'Drill' In Midwest
The Department of Homeland Security is planning to launch a chemical weapons test near the border between Kansas and Oklahoma.
Department officials plan to execute a “low level outdoor release chemical and biological simulant materials” at the old Chilocco Indian School in Newkirk in January and again in June.
DHS goons say the test is designed to test how 'protected' people are by staying indoors in the event of a biological attack.
Healthnutnews.com reports: Congressman Ron Estes, R-Kansas, announced Thursday night that he has “numerous questions” about chemical and biological tests the Department of Homeland Security wants to conduct just across the state line in Oklahoma.
Homeland Security officials plan to execute a “low level outdoor release” of inert chemical and biological simulant materials at the old Chilocco Indian School campus north of Newkirk, Okla., after the first of the year and again next summer.
The campus is near the Kansas/Oklahoma border, about 6 miles south of Arkansas City and about 55 miles southeast of Wichita. Wind typically blows out of the south, which could carry airborne particles into Kansas where it could affect, humans, nature, and wildlife.
Part of the test is to determine how much protection people would receive from being inside a house or an apartment if biological agents are used in a terrorist attack, according to a statement on the Homeland Security web site.
The tests are set for next year in January and February, when humidity is low, and again in June and July, when humidity is high.
The environmental assessment of the proposed chemical tests states “low” concentrations of particles will be released at two buildings on the now-abandoned Chilocco campus. The assessment says that the test will have no adverse impact on human health or the environment.
Estes, who represents the Fourth District in the U.S. House of Representatives, serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security. In a statement released late Thursday, he said he is “monitoring the situation closely.”
“I have numerous questions regarding this proposed test,” Estes said. “While it’s important for our federal agencies to test their abilities in response to threats, we need to be one hundred percent certain this test is safe for the residents of south central Kansas.”
People have 30 days to submit comments on the environmental assessment to Homeland Security about the proposed tests by email at biotest[at]hq.dhs.gov or by mail to the Department of Homeland Security:

Desperate Despots: Senate Democrats Currently Pushing 10 Separate Gun Confiscation Bills
Senate Democrats pushed nine different gun controls during the past six weeks, and ABC News has now emerged with a tenth gun law which they suggest may be the ringer.
That law would legalize firearm confiscation orders like those in Washington state. Such orders allow a judge to issue an ex parte order for the confiscation of an American’s firearms. This means the order can be issued without the firearm owner even being present for the process. His or her first knowledge of the order would come when police knocked on their door to sweep the house for firearms.
It is well known that as America declines due to systemic corruption, bureaucratic incompetence and horrific socialist-style monetary policy blunders that the globalist "deep state" despots are becoming more and more desperate to disarm the American citizens for future population control and to repel any means of resistance to the tyranny they have planned against American citizens.
To remain a truly sovereign and free country we must always reject the tyrannical agenda to disarm the American people. History has proven over and over and over again once the masses give up their firearms, they become cattle to cull and are treated as such en mass. Every brutal dictator in history has confiscated firearms from the masses, in order to control the masses when they become disgruntled and angry with the despotism that overwhelms their lives.
Remain armed and vigilant America, and we will get through these hard times together. The minute you give up your guns is the minute you become de-facto slaves.

Good! After Church Shooting In Texas, Christians Start Packing Heat
As he does every Sunday, the Rt. Rev. Council Nedd II, an Anglican rector, will put on his collar and robes to offer Mass at his central Pennsylvania church. Now, he is considering wearing something else with his religious vestments: his handgun.
As a Pennsylvania state constable, Dr. Nedd can bring his gun just about everywhere—to the grocery store, to the park and to synagogues and other houses of worship, where he often acts as security. His church was the one place where he went unarmed.
“Weapons do not belong in church,” he said. But, as a bishop, he has “a responsibility to protect the flock,” he added.
One week after a shooting at a Texas church left 26 dead and 20 more wounded, congregations gathering for worship around the country Sunday are once again facing the question of security. Long the last frontier where many gun owners went unarmed, the faithful are now considering whether they should bring firearms to their houses of worship as well.
Many who live near Sutherland Springs, Texas, where last week’s shooting took place, said they didn’t bring their weapons into their houses of worship.
Tomie Barker, who attends Christ Lutheran Church of Elm Creek in Seguin, Texas, about 15 miles north of Sutherland Springs, said her husband didn’t have the firearm he is licensed to carry on him last Sunday when their church was locked down following the shooting at the nearby First Baptist Church. But, she said, he plans to have it with him this Sunday.
“Why would we take a gun to church? Church and school—we feel like we ought to be safe,” she said on Saturday, nearly a week after the shooting. “But he’s not leaving home without it now.”
Ms. Barker, 60, thinks other worshipers will feel the same, and said she told her pastor that the church should probably make note of who is armed in case another emergency arises.
“I’ve told everybody, I told my pastor: I’m not going to be a sitting duck or a fish in the barrel,” she said. “We know all about the whack-a-doodles and the copycats.”
Houses of worship are among the softest of soft targets, with inherent missions and traditions emphasizing peace and welcoming. Churches, synagogues, mosques and Sikh temples have struggled to balance their desire to provide an open sanctuary for the community with security. In recent years, many houses of worship have installed cameras and hired armed guards.
The Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, in response to the Sutherland Springs shooting, offered a free seminar on church security. Representatives from more than 300 churches signed up for the course within three days.
After the shooting last Sunday, Ken Paxton, the Texas attorney general, said churches needed armed protection.https://archive.fo/k7r3khttp://sigforum.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/320601935/m/8830070334

BOOM! Saudi Arabia Pivots East, Cutting Off US Ties
; >>>/news/3023BYE BYE US PETRODOLLAR! PETRODOLLAR IS NOW OFFICIALLY KILL! HYPERINFLATION BY 2018?
If the Saudi Arabia situation doesn't worry you, you're not paying attention.
While turbulent during the best of times, gigantic waves of change are now sweeping across the Middle East. The magnitude is such that the impact on the global price of oil, as well as world markets, is likely to be enormous.
A dramatic geo-political realignment by Saudi Arabia is in full swing this month. It’s upending many decades of established strategic relationships among the world's superpowers and, in particular, is throwing the Middle East into turmoil.
So much is currently in flux, especially in Saudi Arabia, that nearly anything can happen next. Which is precisely why this volatile situation should command our focused attention at this time.
The main elements currently in play are these:A sudden and intense purging of powerful Saudi insiders (arrests, deaths, & asset seizures)Huge changes in domestic policy and strategyA shift away from the US in all respects (politically, financially and militarily)Deepening ties to ChinaA surprising turn towards Russia (economically and militarily)Increasing cooperation and alignment with Israel
Taken together, this is tectonic change happening at blazing speed.
That it's receiving too little attention in the US press given the implications, is a tip off as to just how big a deal this is -- as we're all familiar by now with how the greater the actual relevance and importance of a development, the less press coverage it receives. This is not a direct conspiracy; it's just what happens when your press becomes an organ of the state and other powerful interests. Like a dog trained with daily rewards and punishments, after a while the press needs no further instruction on the house rules.

Another US-backed Deep State Billionaire, Confidant of George W. Bush, Arrested In Saudi Arabia
According to a new report by Middle East Eye, Prince Bandar bin Sultan - Saudi Arabia's most famous arms dealer, longtime former ambassador to the US, and recent head of Saudi intelligence - was among those detained as part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's (MBS) so-called "corruption purge" that started with the initial arrests of up to a dozen princes and other top officials last weekend.
If confirmed, the arrest and detention of Bandar would constitute the most significant and high profile figure caught up in the purge - even above that of high profile billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal - given Bandar's closeness to multiple US administrations and involvement in events ranging from Reagan's Nicaraguan Contra program (including direct involvement in the Iran-Contra scandal), to making the case for the Iraq War as a trusted friend of Bush and Cheney, to directing US-Saudi covert operations overseeing the arming of jihadists in Syria.
Middle East Eye issued the report based on multiple contacts "inside the royal court" and indicates further that the scale of MBS' aggressive crackdown is much larger than previously reported, and even involves the torture of "senior figures" among those detained:
Some senior figures detained in last Saturday's purge in Saudi Arabia were beaten and tortured so badly during their arrest or subsequent interrogations that they required hospital treatment, Middle East Eye can reveal. People inside the royal court also told MEE that the scale of the crackdown, which has brought new arrests each day, is much bigger than Saudi authorities have admitted, with more than 500 people detained and double that number questioned.
And shockingly, those sources say that the longtime Saudi 'deep state' power broker and liaison with the West, Prince Bandar, is among the detained:
One of the most famous is Prince Bandar bin Sultan, a former Saudi ambassador to Washington and confidant of former US President George W Bush. There is no word on his fate, but Saudi authorities said that one of the corruption cases they are looking at is the al-Yamamah arms deal, in which Bandar was involved.
While no doubt Bandar's very well-known role in Saudi "oil for arms" programs which have come to define Saudi relations with the West over the past decades is a trumped up and "selective" charge (insofar as the highest levels of the state have overseen such shady dealing) the al-Yamamah deal in particular - which goes back to the mid-1980's - has been an historical embarrassment to both the UK and Saudi governments (BAE Systems was the prime British contractor involved) for the astounding level of fraudulent accounting exposed in UK courts.

Time To Ditch Commiefornia, Comrades!? Homelessness Surges Among Silicon Valley's Slave Labor Class
In the same affluent, suburban city where Google built its headquarters, Tes Saldana lives in a crowded but tidy camper she parks on the street.
She concedes it's "not a very nice living situation," but it also is not unusual. Until authorities told them to move, more than a dozen other RVs filled with people who can't afford rent joined Saldana on a tree-lined street in Mountain View, parked between a Target and a luxury apartment complex.
Homeless advocates and city officials say it's outrageous that in the shadow of a booming tech economy - where young millionaires dine on $15 wood-grilled avocado and think nothing of paying $1,000 for an iPhone X - thousands of families can't afford a home. Many of the homeless work regular jobs, in some cases serving the very people whose sky-high net worth is the reason housing has become unaffordable for so many.
Across the street from Saldana's camper, for example, two-bedroom units in the apartment complex start at $3,840, including concierge service. That's more than she brings home, even in a good month.
Saldana and her three adult sons, who live with her, have looked for less rustic accommodations, but rents are $3,000 a month or more, and most of the available housing is distant. She said it makes more sense to stay in the camper near their jobs and try to save for a brighter future, even if a recent city crackdown chased them from their parking spot.
"We still need to eat," said Saldana, 51. "I still want to bring my kids, once in a while, to a movie, to eat out."
She cooks and serves food at two hotels in nearby Palo Alto, jobs that keep her going most days from 5 in the morning until 10 at night. Two of her sons, all in their 20s, work at a bakery and pay $700 toward the RV each month. They're all very much aware of the economic disparity in Silicon Valley.
"How about for us people who are serving these tech people?" Saldana said. "We don't get the same paycheck that they do."
There is no firm estimate on the number of people who live in vehicles in Silicon Valley, but the problem is pervasive and apparent to anyone who sees RVs lining thoroughfares; not as visible are the cars tucked away at night in parking lots. Advocates for the homeless say it will only get worse unless more affordable housing is built.
The median rent in the San Jose metro area is $3,500 a month, yet the median wage is $12 an hour in food service and $19 an hour in health care support, an amount that won't even cover housing costs. The minimum annual salary needed to live comfortably in San Jose is $87,000, according to a study by personal finance website GoBankingRates.https://archive.fo/3RIxnhttp://www.sfchronicle.com/news/article/In-shadow-of-tech-boom-the-working-homeless-12337023.php

Twelve Year Old Sues Jeff Sessions To Legalize Medical Marijuana Nationwide
A 12-year-old girl is suing U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions over the nation’s official marijuana policy.
A motion by the US government to dismiss her case has been denied.
According to court documents, Alexis Bortell was joined by four other plaintiffs in her lawsuit, filed in US District Court in the Southern District of New York in July. A motion by the US government to dismiss her case has been denied.
Alexis was diagnosed with epilepsy as a young child. Doctors in her home state of Texas were recommending invasive brain surgery as traditional medicine wasn’t helping her seizures. The family were advised that they could take advantage of an out-of-state option to treat the epilepsy with medical marijuana.
“As the seizures got worse, we had to move to Colorado to get cannabis because it’s illegal in Texas,” Bortell said
RT reports: Bortell was joined by four other plaintiffs in her lawsuit, filed in US District Court in the Southern District of New York on July 24, according to court documents. Other defendants named in the case are the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Acting Director of the DEA Chuck Rosenberg and the US government.
Bortell has suffered from epilepsy since she was a little girl, and treatments in her home state of Texas failed to relieve her suffering. But then, a pediatrician advised her family that they could take advantage of an out-of-state option to treat the epilepsy with medical marijuana, according to KDVR.
The family decided to use the treatment, but had to move from Texas to Colorado, where the practice is legal. They began administering the child a strain of cannabis oil called Haleigh’s Hope soon after moving. A drop of liquid THC – the chemical compound found in cannabis that produces a high – was given to Bortell once in the morning and once at night.
Since beginning her THC treatment, Bortell has been seizure-free for two and a half years. “As the seizures got worse, we had to move to Colorado to get cannabis because it’s illegal in Texas,” Bortell said, KDVR reported.
While describing the difference between past treatment proposals and her current use of a THC liquid, Bortell said: “I’d say it’s a lot better than brain surgery.”
At issue in the case, is a federal prohibition on marijuana that prevents Bortell from returning home to Texas to continue with her treatment.
“I would like to be able to visit my grandparents without risking being taken to a foster home,” Bortell said about her joint lawsuit against Sessions, KDVR reported.
Despite the fact that 29 states have legalized the practice of administering medical marijuana to patients, cannabis remains a Schedule I narcotic under federal US law.https://archive.fo/LWdldhttp://yournewswire.com/twelve-year-old-sues-sessions-to-legalize-medical-marijuana-nationwide/

CIA-run WaPo Admits Podesta Lobbying Group Is About To Come To An End
For more than 30 years, the Podesta name was gold in Washington.
Tony Podesta was a respected lobbyist and a fundraiser for Democratic candidates. His younger brother, John, served as Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff and as senior counselor to Barack Obama. Together, they were the most powerful brother act in liberal politics since the Kennedys.
Then John became chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, putting the Podestas in the crosshairs of the alt-right. In the middle of the campaign, John’s hacked emails led to “Pizzagate,” a bizarre conspiracy theory about a child sex ring. Finally, and against all expectations, he lost the bitterly fought election.
Now Tony’s work for a Ukrainian nonprofit group is part of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation, prompting the powerful lobbyist to resign from the Podesta Group, the firm he founded three decades ago.
“I didn’t leave with a sense of tragedy or regret about anything I had done,” Tony said nonchalantly in an interview last week. “I thought it was better for the clients and better for the people in the office for me to get out of there.”
WaPo article: https://archive.fo/xIYE9
While all eyes (from the left and the establishment right) remain on Trump (daring to shake Putin's hand this weekend), the mainstream media appears to be missing the news that the lobbying firm founded by longtime Democratic operative Tony Podesta is reportedly on the verge of shuttering after being swept up in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
Just three weeks after we reported that special counsel Mueller was targeting lobbying firm Podesta Group. and just two weeks after Tony Podesta resigned from his position at the firm he founded, The Hill reports that Kimberley Fritts, the Podesta Group's chief executive, told employees on Thursday that the firm would not exist at the end of the year and that they would likely not be paid through the end of November, sources told CNN.
Fritts announced her resignation from the top Washington lobbying group after Podesta left the company amid ties to indictments filed in the Russia investigation. Fritts is beginning work on launching a new firm. Her last day at the company Friday created new uncertainty for the Podesta Group after the departure of Podesta on Oct. 30.
Multiple employees who spoke to The Hill said the mood at the firm was mostly optimistic, though they said many of the firm's dozens of employees could be in limbo as Fritts sets up the new firm and brings Podesta Group talent and clients with her.
As a reminder, Mueller is now investigating whether the Podesta Group properly identified to U.S. authorities its foreign work on behalf of a Ukrainian advocacy group in Europe, CNN reported.
An NBC report found that the Podesta Group was one of several firms working on Paul Manafort's public relations campaign for European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which the Podesta Group claims it thought was a nonpartisan think tank, something which this site reported first last August.
It goes without saying, that Podesta's brother, John, is arguably one of the top figure in Democratic politics, serving most recently as chief of staff in the Bill Clinton White House and also as the chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.
What happens next to Tony (and perhaps his brother John) is to be determined, but one thing is clear: both sides of the swamp should probably control themselves in any premature celebrations as this appears to be far from over.

Barack Obama Nearly Bankrupted The DNC Claims Donna Brazile
Former interim chair of the DNC, Donna Brazile, says Barack Obama was a massive “leech” who nearly drained the Democratic party of its funds.
“We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by [Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz] that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected,” Brazile writes in her new book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House.”
Dailycaller.com reports: Many of the revelations in Brazile’s book revolve around the deep debt the Democratic party was facing at the end of Obama’s presidency and the lengths it had to go to to survive a national presidential race. Obama’s use of party funds for private pollsters and focus groups drained the party, and Wasserman Schultz’s leadership as party chairman failed to address the problem. Clinton then bailed out the party in order to gain control of it, according to Brazile.
“This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went along with all of this because she liked the power and perks of being a chair but not the responsibilities,” Brazile said.
Obama, who swept the 2008 Democratic presidential primary away from then-senator Clinton, didn’t have the same connection to the DNC that other party leaders had.
“Barack never had seen himself as connected to the party. He had not come up through it the way Joe Biden and Hillary had, but had sprung up almost on his own and never had any trouble raising money for his campaigns,” Brazile wrote.
Obama “used the party to provide for political expenses like gifts to donors, and political travel.” Because he “also cared deeply about his image,” he used DNC funds for “his pollster and focus groups” late into his second term, even though he couldn’t run for president, Brazile said.
Paying of the party’s debt made the DNC beholden to Clinton and her the de facto head of the party, Brazile wrote. Most decisions had to be run through Clinton’s Brooklyn, N.Y., headquarters. Brazile referred to it as the “high command of Brooklyn” on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday.
Despite blaming Obama, Clinton and Wasserman Schultz for the party’s troubles, she admitted that the three do love the Democratic party.
“I knew that these three did not do this with malice. I knew if you woke any of them up in the middle of the night to ask them how they felt about the Democratic Party they would answer with sincerity that they loved this party and all it had done for the country and for them. Yet they had leeched it of its vitality and were continuing to do so,” Brazile said.https://archive.fo/DRJ9Ohttp://yournewswire.com/donna-brazile-obama-leech-dnc/

From Superpower to Incompetence
Having grown up during the second half of the 20th century, I don’t recognize my country today. I experienced life in a competent country, and now I experience life in an incompetent country.
Everything is incompetent. The police are incompetent. They shoot children, grandmothers, cripples, and claim that they feared for their life.
Washington’s foreign policy is incompetent. Washington has alienated the world with its insane illegal attacks on other countries. Today the United States and Israel are the two most distrusted countries on earth and the two countries regarded as the greatest threat to peace.
The military/security complex is incompetent. The national security state is so incompetent that it was unable to block the most humiliating attack in history against a superpower that proved to be entirely helpless as a few people armed with box cutters and an inability to fly an airplane destroyed the World Trade Center and part of the Pentagon itself. The military industries have produced at gigantic cost the F-35 that is no match for the Russian fighters or even for the F-15s and F-16s it is supposed to replace.
The media is incompetent. I can’t think of an accurate story that has been reported in the 21st century. There must be one, but it doesn’t come to mind.
The universities are incompetent. Instead of hiring professors to teach the students, the universities hire administrators to regulate them. Instead of professors, there are presidents, vice presidents, chancellors, vice chancellors, provosts, vice provosts, assistant provosts, deans, associate deans, assistant deans. Instead of subject matter there is speech regulation and sensitivity training. Universities spend up to 75% of their budgets on administrators, many of whom have outsized incomes.
The public schools have been made incompetent by standardized national testing. The purpose of education today is to pass some test. School accreditation and teachers’ pay depend not on developing the creativity or independent thinking of those students capable of it, but on herding them through memory work for a standardized test.
One could go on endlessly.
Instead, I will relate a story of everyday incompetencies that have prevented me from writing this week and for a few more days yet.
Recently, while away from my home, a heavy equipment operator working on a nearby construction site managed to drive under power lines with the fork lift raised. Instead of breaking the wire, it snapped the pole in half that conveyed electric power to my house. The power company came out, or, as I suspect, an outsourced contractor, who reestablished power to my home but did not check that the neutral wire was still attached. Consequently for a week or so my house experienced round the clock surges of high voltage that blew out the surge protection, breaker box, and every appliance in the house. Expecting my return, the house was inspected, and the discovery was that there was no power. Back came the power company and discovered that high voltage was feeding into the house and had destroyed everything plugged in.
So. Here we have a moron operating heavy equipment who does not understand that he cannot drive under power lines with the lift raised. We have a power company or its outsourced contractor who does not understand that power cannot be reconnected without making certain that the neutral wire is still connected.
So every appliance is fried. Glass everywhere from blown out light bulbs. We are talking thousands of dollars.
This is America today. And the incompetents ruling incompetents want war with Iran, Korea, Russia, China. Considering the extraordinary level of incompetence throughout the United States, I guarantee you that we will not win these wars.https://archive.fo/e3ACrhttps://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/11/08/from-superpower-to-incompetence/

Good! UK Implements Total Ban On Monsanto’s Toxic Roundup
The UK has announced a total ban on Monsanto’s Roundup following evidence showing that the herbicide was responsible for killing millions of bees.
Environment secretary Michael Gove says the ban will prevent the insect-harming pesticide from continuing to decimate bee populations across the UK.
The Guardian reports: The decision reverses the government’s previous position and is justified by recent new evidence showing neonicotinoids have contaminated the whole landscape and cause damage to colonies of bees. It also follows the revelation that 75% of all flying insects have disappeared in Germany and probably much further afield, a discovery Gove said had shocked him.
Neonicotinoids are the world’s most widely used insecticide but in 2013 the European Union banned their use on flowering crops, although the UK was among the nations opposing the ban. The European commission now wants a total ban on their use outside of greenhouses, with a vote expected in December, and the UK’s new position makes it very likely to pass.
“The weight of evidence now shows the risks neonicotinoids pose to our environment, particularly to the bees and other pollinators which play such a key part in our £100bn food industry, is greater than previously understood,” said Gove. “I believe this justifies further restrictions on their use. We cannot afford to put our pollinator populations at risk.”
In an article for the Guardian, Gove said: “As is always the case, a deteriorating environment is ultimately bad economic news as well.” He said pollinators boost the yield and quality of UK crops by £400m-£680m every year and said, for example, gala apple growers are now having to spend £5.7m a year to do replace the work of lost natural pollinators.
Gove said the evidence of neonicotinoids’ harm to pollinators has grown stronger since 2013, including a landmark field trial published in July that showed neonicotinoids damage bee populations, not just individual insects, and a global analysis of honey revealing worldwide contamination by the insecticides.
This and other research was examined by the UK’s Expert Committee on Pesticides (ECP), which published its updated advice on Thursday. “Exposure to neonicotinoid pesticides under field conditions can have an unacceptable effect on honeybee health” they concluded. “Such unacceptable effects are occurring at a landscape level and between seasons.”
Professor Ian Boyd, chief scientific advisor at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, said: “The important question is whether neonicotinoids’ use results in harmful effects on populations of bees and other pollinators as a whole. The available evidence [now] justifies taking further steps to restrict the use of neonicotinoids.”https://archive.fo/fGv92http://yournewswire.com/uk-bans-monsanto-roundup/

French Gestapo Plans To Arrest Marine Le Pen For Criticising Globalist Deliberate Destabilization
The leader of the National Front, who ran a failed campaign for president this year, in 2015 tweeted three pictures of IS atrocities, including one of James Foley, an American journalist beheaded by the extremists.
“Daesh is THIS!” she wrote in a post accompanying the photos, using an Arabic acronym for IS.
Faced with outrage on social media and from Foley’s family, Le Pen later deleted the picture of the American, saying she had been unaware he was the man in the picture.
French authorities launched an investigation into the incident but could not press charges while Le Pen had protection from prosecution.
At the time Le Pen was a member of the European Parliament.
That assembly voted in March to lift her immunity over the pictures but three months later she won it back after being elected to the French parliament.
Wednesday’s decision of the 22-member Assembly committee is the latest blow to the 49-year-old politician, who has appeared adrift since suffering a sound defeat at the hands of Emmanuel Macron in May’s presidential runoff.
After proving a formidable opponent, Le Pen lost to Macron with 33.9 percent to his 66.1 percent of the vote after floundering badly in a final TV debate between the pair.
The party also fared badly in June parliamentary elections, taking just eight seats out of 577 — too few to have much of an impact on lawmaking.https://archive.fo/PAe9qhttp://yournewswire.com/marine-le-pen-prison-french-revolution/

Common Core: 13 Baltimore City High Schools Have ZERO Students Proficient in Math
An alarming discovery coming out of City Schools. Project Baltimore analyzed 2017 state testing data and found one-third of High Schools in Baltimore, last year, had zero students proficient in math.
But that’s not all we found. In the midst of that troubling number, there are some bright spots.
Most mornings, at Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys, start the same way – with students chanting the school’s motto in the gym.
“There’s an urgency about the work we’re doing,” said Jack Pannell, the school’s founder.
“Nine out of ten black boys in Baltimore City are not reading at grade level,” added Pannell.
That grim statistic, lead Pannell to open his north Baltimore school three years ago. As the name implies, in these halls, there are no girls.
Project Baltimore analyzed 2017 state test scores released this fall. We paged through 16,000 lines of data and uncovered this: Of Baltimore City’s 39 High Schools, 13 had zero students proficient in math.Digging further, we found another six high schools where one percent tested proficient. Add it up – in half the high schools in Baltimore City, 3804 students took the state test, 14 were proficient in math.
With these eye-opening results, Project Baltimore reached to North Avenue. But no one inside the building would sit down to answer our questions. Instead, we got a statement. Concerning our investigation, it read, “These results underscore the urgency of the work we are now pursuing. We must do more to meet the needs of all our students.”https://archive.fo/3VAlrhttp://kutv.com/news/nation-world/13-baltimore-city-high-schools-zero-students-proficient-in-math

Former Wife of Arrested Saudi Billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal: Elite Pedo Rings Exist
The former wife of Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal, who was recently arrested during the country’s anti-corruption purge, has exposed the ruling Saudi regime in an exclusive interview with the French newspaper Le Monde.
Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef claims that those who accuse others of corruption and money laundering, are in fact highly corrupted themselves.
Fort Russ reports: The princess said they’ve turned the city of Jeddah into a slave market where underage girls are being exploited for noisy sex parties involving drug and alcohol abuse.
She said that one of the main reasons why this keeps going on is that the members of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Saudi Sharia police) tend to keep away from the matter, fearing they might lose their jobs, should they intervene.
The newspaper quoted the princess as saying that a Hallowen event was recently held in Jeddah, and which was attended by 150 people, including employees of the consulates. The scene was like a typical nightclub anywhere outside the Kingdom, with available wines, dancing couples in fancy costumes, and a DJ.
Bint Aidan said the price of smuggled liquor in the country is very high. For instance, the price of the Smirnoff vodka is 1500 Riyals ($ 400), sometimes forcing party organizers to refill the original bottles with a local wine called Siddiqui.
She said that slavery in Saudi Arabia has different forms, but it is done in secrecy and permitted only among the primary beneficiaries of the princes of the House of Saud.
But then she mentioned one of the most repulsive things: Buying and renting the children, especially the orphans, from countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania and Bulgaria.
The children become the property of those who buy them and are not allowed to leave without permission.
Even the Asian maids who come to work often find themselves in a kind of slave-like position.
Young girls are divided into smaller groups and exploited for immoral acts.
Trafficking of white women and exploiting them for sexual practices is also relatively common.https://archive.fo/ew8OOhttp://yournewswire.com/saudi-princess-exposes-regimes-dark-side-drug-drink-fueled-orgies-with-underage-girls

Bankruptcy: Venezuela Defaults On Their Debts
Today at 11am, the ISDA Determinations Committee sits down to decide whether an event of default has occurred due to the delayed principal payment on the Petroleos de Venezuela SA, or PDVSA, bond that matured Nov. 2, in the process triggering PDVSA (and perhaps Venezuela) CDS, and officially declaring Venezuela in default.
We won't have to wait that long: moments ago, Wilmington Trust, the Trustee of the 8.5% bonds due 2018, issued by Corpoelec, Venezuela's electricity company, declared that the missed interest payment originally due October 10, and whose 30 day grace period expired on November 9, and for which no pament was sent or received, officially constitutes an event of default.
From the statement:
Wilmington Trust, National Association is communicating the following to you in its capacity as successor trustee (the “Trustee”) to The Bank of New York, as trustee, under the Indenture dated as of April 10, 2008 (the “Indenture”) for the $650,000,000 8.50% Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Notes”) of C.A. La Electricidad de Caracas (the “Issuer”). In a letter to the Trustee and various other parties dated November 30, 2012, National Electricity Corporation, S.A. (CORPOELEC) advised that it is the successor by merger to the Issuer. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein shall have the respective meanings set forth in the Indenture.
Please be advised that the Paying Agent with respect to the Notes has advised the Trustee that the payment of interest on the Notes that was due on October 10, 2017 was not received by the Paying Agent. The Issuer’s failure to pay interest on the Notes when due on October 10, 2017 constitutes a Default under the Indenture. The Paying Agent has further notified the Trustee that the interest payment was not received by November 9, 2017.
The Issuer’s failure to pay the overdue interest on the Notes on or before November 9, 2017 constitutes an Event of Default under Section 5.1(ii) of the Indenture. Pursuant to Section 5.1(b) of the Indenture, if an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing and has not been waived, the Holders of at least 25% in principal amount of Outstanding Notes may declare the principal of, and premium, if any, accrued interest and Additional Amounts, if any, on all the Notes to be due and payable by notice in writing to the Issuer and the Trustee specifying the Event of Default and that such notice is a “notice of acceleration”, and the same shall become immediately due and payable.
It is unclear if this formal default declaration makes today's ISDA determinations committee decision moot, however it now looks quite certain that Monday's meeting between creditors and the country's vice president and chief debt negotiatior, who also happens to be a US-sanctioned drug kingpin, will no longer be necessary.
Today's news will not come as a surprise to CDS holders, who had already priced in a 99.99% probability of default in 5 years.https://archive.fo/bwdE7http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-10/venezuela-officially-declared-default-due-missed-interest-payment

VAULT 8: WikiLeaks Begins Publishing Source Code for CIA Hacking Tools
WikiLeaks began publishing the source code of alleged CIA hacking tools Thursday in a new series dubbed “Vault 8.”
The source code, according to a press release from the anti-secrecy organization, is intended to “enable investigative journalists, forensic experts and the general public to better identify and understand covert CIA infrastructure components.”https://wikileaks.org/vault8/
“Source code published in this series contains software designed to run on servers controlled by the CIA,” WikiLeaks writes, stressing that the material does not contain 0-day or undisclosed vulnerabilities that could be utilized by others.
Hive, the first tool featured in Vault 8, aids the agency in controlling malware installed on target devices.
“Even the most sophisticated malware implant on a target computer is useless if there is no way for it to communicate with its operators in a secure manner that does not draw attention,” WikiLeaks writes. “Using Hive even if an implant is discovered on a target computer, attributing it to the CIA is difficult by just looking at the communication of the malware with other servers on the internet.”
“Hive provides a covert communications platform for a whole range of CIA malware to send exfiltrated information to CIA servers and to receive new instructions from operators at the CIA.”
While the source code for Hive is unlikely to do little more than assist forensics analysts, the code for more powerful tools in Vault 7, if released, could potentially enable malicious attackers.
These latest leaks, likely from the same source as the Vault 7 files, are believed to have originated from a CIA employee or contractor.https://archive.fo/z9h8Whttps://www.infowars.com/vault-8-wikileaks-begins-publishing-source-code-for-cia-hacking-tools/

US Govt Threatens To Ban Russian News Media, Russian Govt Vows To Ban US News Media
Who controls the media again?
Congress is using a decades-old piece of legislation to force Russia Today to register as a foreign agent in the US, adding that if the site doesn’t comply with the order by Monday, the DOJ could move to shutter its operations and arrest its top executive, RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan.
Russia Today revealed Thursday that the Department of Justice has given the site until next week to comply with its new interpretation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). RT has been operating in the US since 2005.
While disappointing in terms of its implications for first amendment freedoms in the US, the DOJ’s declaration is hardly a surprise. Under pressure from lawmakers, Twitter last month said it would prohibit RT from buying paid ads on its platform.
The FARA was adopted in the US in 1938 to counter pro-Nazi agitation . Washington has decided to apply the act towards the company that supplies all services for RT America on its territory, including TV production and operations. Just over 400 entities are currently registered under the legislation, though that group doesn’t include a single media outlet.https://archive.fo/sPXYnhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-09/congress-rt-register-foreign-agent-or-face-arrest
Moscow will start implementing its response measures to the US actions against RT next week, according to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
"We have really worked out response measures on the basis of Russian laws. As of today, there is the understanding that practical implementation of these response measures will start next week," Zakharova said on Rossiya-1 TV channel.
According to Zakharova, the US Department of Justice's demand on RT registration as a foreign agent means that the "American establishment has understood that it cannot win in the competition" with Russian media outlets.https://archive.fo/cTjJChttps://sputniknews.com/russia/201711091058964356-russia-fara-rt/

Gay Rothschild Frat Boy Macron Shows Panic In Wake of Recent Saudi Purge... Wonder Why?
French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Riyadh on Thursday for hastily scheduled talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman amid rising tensions within Saudi Arabia.Macron, who flew in from a visit to the United Arab Emirates, had earlier declined to discuss a wave of high-level arrests for corruption in Saudi Arabia, but said it was vital to work with the kingdom for the stability of the region.
He told a news conference in Dubai that the decision to go to Riyadh had been made on Thursday morning, and that his first face-to-face talks with the prince would focus on "regional questions, in particular Yemen and Lebanon".
Recently revealed by inside sources were Macron and his EU associates' concerns how the recent purge against the Saudi regime could be detrimental to the EU's mass migration (amnesty) programs. Saudi Arabia is a massive hub that produces radical Islamic terrorist ideology, and if the regime is "cleaned up" the EU's deliberate destabilization program could be in jeopardy. According to an inside source the EU relies on importation of Islamic militants into Europe to further expand their police state industries and governmental spy programs. Without current deliberate destabilization (courtesy of EU policy) the Eurocrats would have no justification for creating police states in European nations to profit from.

Despite Heavy Police State Funding, TSA Fails 80% of Undercover Counter-terror Tests
Yet another example of massively wasted taxpayer money and the stubborn hubris of bureaucracy:
In recent undercover tests of multiple airport security checkpoints by the Department of Homeland Security, inspectors said screeners, their equipment or their procedures failed more than half of the time, according to a source familiar with the classified report.
When ABC News asked the source familiar with the report if the failure rate was 80 percent, the response was, “You are in the ballpark.”
In a public hearing following a private, classified briefing to the House Committee on Homeland Security, members of Congress called the failures by the Transportation Security Administration "disturbing."
Rep. Mike Rogers went as far as to tell TSA Administrator David Pekoske, "This agency that you run is broken badly and it needs your attention."
Pekoske was confirmed by the Senate this summer.
Inspectors "identified vulnerabilities with TSA's screener performance, screening equipment, and associated procedures," according to a statement from the Department of Homeland Security.
The statement adds that the findings remain classified but that eight recommendations have been made to TSA to improve checkpoint security. It is not clear what those recommendations are.The news of the failure comes two years after ABC News reported that secret teams from DHS found that TSA failed 95 percent of the time to stop inspectors from covertly smuggling weapons or explosive materials through screening.
Congress is completely delusional as usual. They once again pretend spending even MORE taxpayer money on TSA is somehow going to "solve" this problem. It won't fix the problem. They need to bring back the old-school, regular metal detectors which have been proven to be much more reliable and cheaper!https://archive.fo/AQH2Phttp://abcnews.go.com/US/tsa-fails-tests-latest-undercover-operation-us-airports/story?id=51022188

Donald Trump Strikes New Business Deals With China, Blames Previous Presidents for Massive Trade Deficit
President Donald Trump praised Chinese business leaders during his state visit to China, pointing out frankly that he didn’t blame them for the massive trade deficit with the United States.
“I don’t blame China,” Trump said, pointing to estimations that the trade deficit with the United States was as high as $500 billion. “After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for the benefit of its citizens? I give China great credit.”
His remarks drew applause from the business leaders in the room.
Trump blamed previous presidents of the United States for allowing the lopsided trade relationship with China.“I do blame past administrations for allowing this out-of-control trade deficit to take place and to grow,” he said. “We have to fix this because it just doesn’t work for our great American companies, and it doesn’t work for our great American workers. It is just not sustainable.”
Trump said that he had a great relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and would continue to negotiate on trade.
“There’s a very good chemistry between the two of us, believe me,” he said.
Trump repeated his remarks during a media appearance with President Xi prior to a meeting with the Chinese president, pointing out that the United States had a responsiblity to change it’s trade policies.
“[I]t’s too bad that past administrations allowed it go get so far out of kilter,” he said. “But we’ll make it fair, and it will be tremendous for both of us.”
“My administration is committed to improving our trade and business relationships with China,” he said. “And this relationship is something which we are working very hard to make a fair and reciprocal one.”
The White House said that they negotiated $250 billion in business deals on energy, transportation, technology, and agricultural products while in China, according to Bloomberg News.https://archive.fo/ccSZEhttp://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/09/donald-trump-i-blame-previous-presidents-for-massive-trade-deficit-not-china/

Philippine’s President & Hero Duterte: United States Was The First Victim of Globalization
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte says the United States is the first victim of “globalization” and that’s why President Donald Trump is pushing back with an “America First” stance.
Duterte made the comments at a business conference on the sidelines of a regional summit. He said the flight of American manufacturing to China after it opened to foreign trade and investment hurt U.S. workers.
Duterte described how reforms launched by Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in the 1970s led the country to open its once-closed borders to foreign trade and investment. U.S. businesses were eager to take advantage of less expensive labor and lower taxes.
He said, “America was the first victim of globalization and that is why Trump is trying to lure them back and said ‘America First.'”
Talks aimed at salvaging a Pacific Rim trade pact rejected by President Donald Trump have resumed on the sidelines of a regional summit in Vietnam.
Trade and foreign ministers of 11 members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership met Thursday seeking to agree in principle on how to proceed without U.S. involvement after Trump pulled out earlier this year.https://archive.fo/m90nRhttp://www.breitbart.com/news/philippines-duterte-says-us-first-victim-of-globalization/

Socialized Health Care System COLLAPSES in Venezuela… No More Hospital Beds For The Sick
"THEY SHOULD BE EATING ROCKS" - CURRENT VENZ PREZRELATED! MISERY IN VENEZUELA DOCUMENTED: https://archive.fo/50tPO
It didn’t take long for the socialist experiment in Venezuela to give way to malnutrition, starvation and scarcity of hospital beds and basic medical supplies. It doesn’t matter how sick you are right now in Venezuela; you might have no option but to take makeshift treatment from the hospital floor. Women are giving birth in crowded waiting rooms, and hundreds of thousands of people with malaria are suffering, unable to get treatment. Over a million cases of malaria are expected by 2018.https://archive.fo/4yGZXhttp://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/world/americas/venezuela/article182770351.html
According to expert estimates, the country has enough hospital beds to accommodate about 25 percent of the country’s needs. The government’s supply of 47,000 hospital beds has shrunk to 18,000 units, as the socialist health care system continues to ration. There is no guarantee that a doctor will be able to help you if you walk through hospital doors, either. This comes at a time when thousands of the country’s children are at risk of dying from malnutrition. Illnesses such as diphtheria are getting the best of the young and old, who are starving for nutrition or some kind of sustenance and stability. Rafael Gottenger, president of the Venezuelan American Medical Association, says: “We have seen children dying in Caracas from malnutrition. Mothers have nothing to feed their children. I have documented cases. For example, in the El Llanito Hospital, at least eight children have died recently from malnutrition. And if that’s the way it is in the capital, how would it be in the rest of the country?”
The Venezuelan socialist experiment is about eighteen years old. For fifteen years, the country was represented by Hugo Chavez, a populist who promised free healthcare and an improved standard of living. While the standard of living increased for many in the beginning, the wealth was slowly rationed by those at the very top of the socialist pyramid scheme. Over the years, the country became dependent on foreign oil for a majority of its economy. As the price of the oil went down, the wealth that the government was able to redistribute diminished.
When the government gains control over the economy, the very import aspects of innovation, competition, and efficiency are lost. Newfound dependency on social programs halts the drive and initiative of people. Consumer choice is lost as bureaucrats and the wealthy class engage in corruption and decide what is best for the majority.
What was promised as a fair system slowly loses its ability to regulate its own prices based on consumer demand. The limited supply of money that is taken from the producers is never enough to take care of everyone. When the money begins to run out to make life fair for everyone, production is slowed and goods and services become scarce. When the government begins setting the prices, the elite crony authoritarians find ways to take advantage, cutting off competition that naturally drives prices down and provides more abundant resources and choice.
In Venezuela now, even if a patient finds a hospital bed, there is no guarantee he or she will receive treatment. Douglas Leon Natera, president of the Venezuelan Medical Federation says hospitals have less than five percent of the supplies and medicines needed to function normally.
“Any Venezuelan who gets sick here in the country today runs the risk of entering a clinic only to have the relatives leave crying” Natera told El Nuevo Herald in a telephone interview. He says the high-priority showcase hospitals that receive resources first only have about 10-12 percent of what they need to treat the patients who come through their doors.https://archive.fo/6lhWZhttps://www.naturalnews.com/2017-11-08-socialized-health-care-system-collapses-in-venezuela-no-more-hospital-beds-no-matter-how-sick-you-are.html

US Government: When Gunmen Strike, You're On Your Own
Here is an often-used tactic to defend government police organizations from criticism. Whenever critics point out abusive tactics of police officers, defenders counter with: "And yet you won't refuse police help the next time there's a robber in your house!" This, we are told, illustrates that all police critics are "hypocrites."
This has always been a dishonest tactic, of course, since "consumers" of police "services" are forced to pay for the local monopoly police force, and have no other options. Government police forces have monopolized the marketplace and crowded out many private security services. Thus, calling the police to scare off some robbers on one's property is no more hypocritical than a critic of the local power company who nevertheless turns on a lightbulb. It's simply a matter of making do with a high-priced, low-quality monopolist when no competition is allowed.
Just how low these low-quality services are has become more apparent in recent months.
In the wake of yesterday's church shooting in Texas, for example, private citizens were the ones who shot back at the assailant, and then chased him down in a high speed pursuit. The police did nothing but write some reports afterward.
A few months earlier, as violence escalated during the Charlottesville riot in Virginia, the law enforcement agencies stood back and did little except crash a helicopter in the woods.
Worst of all, of course, is the fact that it took police an hour and 12 minutes to respond to the Las Vegas shooter who killed more than fifty people as he opened fire on a crowd near the Las Vegas strip. Although hotel security had reported the location of the gunman — who had shot a security guard — even before the shooting began, local police agencies waited more than hour before entering the shooter's room. It remains unclear why the shooter stopped shooting after only about ten minutes, but we do know that he would have been free to keep shooting for a much, much longer period of time.1
Among advocates for private firearms ownership, the old joke is that "when seconds matter, the police are only minutes away." In Las Vegas at least, the saying could be "when second matter, the police are only an hour (or more) away."
Defenders of the police, of course, will claim that an hour of preparation was necessary in order to protect "officer safety." But this also tells you a lot about how government police function: while a gunman is raining down gunfire upon a crowd of people, it's officer safety that comes first, not citizen safety.
These are just some more recent examples. A multitude of historical examples remain, as well, including the Columbine school shooting in which local police agencies did nothing but seal off the area while the shooters remained untouched inside the school. The students and faculty trapped inside the school were on their own.
One might also point to the Waco Texas massacre in which police agencies, claiming to be rescuing women and children from the cultist David Koresh, decided to burn most of them to death instead.
None of this should surprise us.
It is established policy in the United States that police agencies have no duty to protect citizens, and are not liable for any harm that comes to citizens due to police inaction. In other words, the taxpayers are required to pay for "protection" from police. But the police aren't required to actually provide services. One can only imagine the howls we'd hear if any private industry were allowed to function in a similar way.

China Spreads Propaganda to U.S. on Facebook, a Platform it Bans at Home
>HONG KONG — China does not allow its people to gain access to Facebook, a powerful tool for disseminating information and influencing opinion.
As if to demonstrate the platform’s effectiveness, outside its borders China uses it to spread state-produced propaganda around the world, including the United States. So much do China’s government and companies value Facebook that the country is Facebook’s biggest advertising market in Asia, even as it is the only major country in the region that blocks the social network.
A look at the Facebook pages of China Central Television, the leading state-owned broadcast network better known as CCTV, and Xinhua, China’s official news agency, reveals hundreds of English-language posts intended for an English-speaking audience.
Each quarter China’s government, through its state media agencies, spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy Facebook ads, according to a person with knowledge of those deals, who was unauthorized to talk publicly about the company’s revenue streams.

The Secret Reason Trump (And All Other Presidents) Were So Cozy With Saudi Arabia
The Secret Reason Trump (And All Other Presidents) Were So Cozy With Saudi Arabiahttps://archive.fo/brrUBhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-08/secret-reason-trump-so-cozy-saudi-arabia
As a candidate, Donald Trump used uncommonly harsh language to criticize Saudi Arabia—the world’s largest oil exporter.
He called the Saudi regime the world’s biggest funder of terrorism.
He also said the Saudi government uses “our petro dollars—our very own money—to fund the terrorists that seek to destroy our people, while the Saudis rely on us to protect them!”
At another point, Trump said, “Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis, it was Saudi [Arabia].”
Trump also criticized Hillary Clinton for taking Saudi money for the Clinton Foundation. (They were its biggest “donors.”) He even challenged her to return the money.
He also famously got into a Twitter spat with a prominent member of the Saudi royal family, Alwaleed bin Talal.
As a candidate, Trump blasted the Saudis countless other times.But, after he took office, Trump did a complete 180. He stopped criticizing the Saudis. In fact, he’s now singing their praises.
It’s bizarre… as if someone put a severed horse head in his bed.
Mere months after criticizing the Saudis, he was on Air Force One headed to Saudi Arabia to do the sword dance with his new friends.
It was his first foreign trip as president.
Trump’s about face was astounding. But his newly adopted deference to the Saudis is no different than Obama’s, Baby Bush’s, or any previous president’s.

Prince William Calls For UK Dictatorship To Regulate, Censor Social Media "For The Children"
Prince William has vowed to pressure the UK government to regulate social media and purge it of damaging ‘conspiracy theories’.
The Duke of Cambridge claims the Royal Family are “routinely targeted” by online trolls as a result of conspiracies written about them.
Speaking at the Children’s Trust and Skillforce on Monday night, the Prince also explained concerns that children are victims of information overload on the Internet.
“On top of this, there is a sense of being ‘on call’ 24/7 through social media, and the subsequent strains this can have on relationships, home life and, ultimately, a child’s sense of their own self-worth. It can all take its toll.”
Rt.com reports: “Role-modelling and giving a child the tools of courage, discipline and resilience are a demonstration of great love and commitment to that child’s success in life. If you are not taught these skills at a young age, it can be very, very difficult to learn them as an adult,” he said.
Resilience is a quality required by the royal family, who have the minutiae of their lives pored over by the tabloid press. The internet has provided yet another platform on which to pass judgement on their outfits, choice of partners, and indeed the whole point of the monarchy.
On Monday, a woman accused of a “distastefully” describing Kate and William’s son Prince George as the face of “white privilege” was denied compensation after being sacked by the British Council.
Angela Gibbins, who earned £80,000 ($105,000) a year as head of global estates at the charity, which promotes Britain’s image worldwide, was sacked for gross misconduct following her “distasteful and personal attack” on the heir to the throne.
The case related to a picture of Prince George, which was originally posted by the band Dub Pistols with the caption: “I know he’s only two years old, but Prince George looks like a f*ing d*head.”
The meme sparked a debate in the comments section, in which Gibbins chipped in, saying: “White privilege. That cheeky grin is the (already locked-in) innate knowledge that he’s Royal, rich, advantaged and will never know any difficulties or hardships in life.
“Let’s find photos of 3yo Syrian refugee children and see if they look alike, eh?”

Saudi Crown Prince Vows To Lock Up 9-11 Conspirators: Conspirators Had Deep Connections With CIA & Mossad
Saudi Crown Prince Vows To Lock Up 9-11 Conspirators: Conspirators Had Deep Connections With CIA & MossadRELATED: >>>/news/2868
Saudi Arabia’s new crown prince Mohammed bin Salman has launched an astonishing crackdown on corruption and terror financing in Saudi Arabia, arresting dozens of powerful, wealthy 9/11 conspirators, including Osama bin Laden’s brother and members of the royal family.
The purge of terror financiers in Saudi Arabia, including royalty, is unprecedented. Ten royals have been arrested so far and placed under house arrest, along with 38 senior cabinet members, all accused of being 9/11 conspirators and financing the Muslim Brotherhood.
President Trump’s influence in Saudi Arabia is hastening the end of the Clinton and Bush globalist era of the last 30 years, as the sudden Saudi Arabian purge of Clinton allies and donors, as well as conspirators connected to 9/11 and the Bushes, signals a dramatic shift that will have an impact around the world, and particularly in the United States.
Americans have long known Saudi Arabia played a central role in the 9/11 attacks, but before President Trump we had weak leaders incapable of standing up to the Saudis and delivering truth and justice to the American people.
But now the tide has turned and we are starting to see the results. The Saudi regime has spent the last 16 years blocking information and preventing investigations from taking place that would implicate wealthy and powerful Saudi citizens. But everything changed when Trump began negotiating.
President Trump’s first overseas trip as president took him to Saudi Arabia and a strong bond was forged with King Salman and his son, the reformer Mohammed bin Salman, desperate to reshape Saudi Arabia as a moderate state, with support for Trump’s war on globalists and the terror needed to support their failed ideology.
A recent U.S. government envoy including Jared Kushner visited Saudi Arabia last week, and Trump’s election promise to investigate 9/11 and deliver long-delayed truth and justice for Americans received a sudden jolt in the arm.
Trump believes that 9/11 has not been properly investigated and he plans to get to the bottom of it. “First of all, the original 9/11 investigation is a total mess and has to be reopened,” Trump said during the election campaign, to widespread mockery from the press.
But whoever laughs last, laughs best. And Trump is developing the habit of getting the last laugh.

Steve Bannon Exposes The Real Reasons That The Elite Support Illegal Immigration: CHEAP LABOR, MORE VOTES
In a key speech to the families of illegal immigrant crime victims, Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon exposed the real reasons that the elites in the United States support illegal immigration – cheap labor and guaranteed votes.
Speaking at a conference held by the Remembrance Project which is made up of families who have lost loved ones at the hands off illegal aliens, Bannon destroyed the notion that support for illegal immigration is based on caring about the actual people who cross into the country illegally.
“We could stay up here all weekend and do this,” Bannon noted as he read off a list of Americans who have been killed. “And each of the victims stories is heart-rendering. But what gets me is what about the American victims dreams? Why are illegal aliens called DREAMers and not the victims?”
Bannon noted that the Americans killed by illegal immigrants aren’t simply a tragedy that just randomly happened but rather are a direct effect of the elites in the country supporting them.
“And by the way, this just doesn’t happen,” Bannon said. “This is not some random law of the universe, this is not physics, okay. This is an act of commission. The elites in this country, the economic, political, and the media elites allow this to happen because they want it to happen”
“The multinational, globalist corporations want cheap labor, and the progressive Left wants cheap votes.” “This is not a conspiracy. And you are not wing-nuts. This is in broad daylight. And if sites like Breitbart and someone like Donald J. Trump had not given you a voice, it’d be totally hidden.”
Despite the benefits of mass illegal and legal immigration for multinational corporations and Democratic politicians — as immigrants are far more likely to vote for Democrats — the impact on Americans has been detrimental.
As Harvard University economist George Borjas has noted, “illegal immigration reduces the wage of native workers by an estimated $99 to $118 billion a year and generates a gain for businesses and other users of immigrants of $107 to $128 billion.”
Every year, at least 1.5 million illegal and legal immigrants enter the U.S. every year, driving down the wages of American workers and costing American taxpayers at least $116 billion every year, as Breitbart News reported.RELATED: >>>/news/2930
Bannon also took aim at Republicans in Congress who continue to push for amnesty for illegal immigrants already here.
“We’re going to have a lot more victories,” Bannon boldly claimed. “And it’s obvious to everybody that we’re going to have to take over the Republican Party. Now the elites in the Republican Party can either go the easy way or the hard way, but they’re going.”
Speaking directly to the victims families, Bannon continued, “If you think about the last couple of days, this is why I’m saying it’s never going to stop, it’s never going to go away, you’re going to have to do this every day, day in and day out, you’re going to have to fight.”https://archive.fo/mBfowhttp://www.thedailysheeple.com/globalist-corporations-want-cheap-labor-and-the-left-wants-cheap-votes-steve-bannon-exposes-the-real-reasons-that-the-elite-support-illegal-immigration_112017

New Internet Censorship bill
>Why SESTA Is Such A Bad Bill>This is the core problem: this bill targets the tools rather than the law breakers.>Punching a hole in CDA 230 will be abused:>This is one that seems to confuse people who don't spend much time looking at intermediary liability protections, how they work and how they'll be abused. It's completely normal for people in that situation to not recognize how widely intermediary liability is used to stifle perfectly legitimate speech and activity. However, we know damn well from looking at the DMCA, in particular, that when you set up a process by which there might be liability on a platform, it's regularly abused by people angry about content online to demand censorship. Indeed, we've seen people regularly admit that if they see content they dislike, even if there's no legitimate copyright claim, they'll "DMCA it" to get it taken down.>Here, the potential problems are much, much worse. Because at least within the DMCA context, you have relatively limited damages (compared to SESTA at least – the monetary damages in the DMCA can add up quickly, but at least its only monetary and it's limited to a ceiling of $150,000 per work infringed). With SESTA, criminal penalties are much more stringent (obviously) which will create massive incentives for platforms to cave immediately, rather than face the risk of criminal prosecution. Similarly, the civil penalties show no upper bound under the law – meaning the potential monetary penalty may be significantly higher.>The chilling effects of criminal charges:>Combine all of this and you create massive chilling effects for any online platforms – big or small. I already explained earlier why the new incentives will not be to help law enforcement or to moderate content at all, for fear of creating "knowledge" but it's even worse than that. >Because, for many platforms, the massive potential liability from SESTA will mean they don't create any kind of platform at all. A comment feature on a website would become a huge liability. Any service that might conceivably be used by anyone to "facilitate" sex trafficking creates the potential for serious criminal and civil liability, which should be of great concern. It would likely lead to many platforms not being created at all, just because of the potential liability. For ones that already exist, some may shutter, and others may greatly curtail what the platform allows.>State Attorneys General have a terrible track record on these issues:>In response to the previous point, some may point out (correctly!) that the existing federal law already exempts federal criminal charges – meaning that the DOJ can go after platforms if it finds that they're actively participating in sex trafficking. But, for as much as we rag on the DOJ, they tend not to be in the business of going after platforms just for the headlines. State AGs, on the other hand, have a fairly long history of doing exactly that – including directly at the behest of companies looking to strangle competitors.

FBI Agent Warned Donna Brazile: Hillary Wants You Dead "Like Seth Rich"
HOLY COW! DONNA BRAZILE IS SPILLING THE BEANS! DNC COLLUSION WITH HILLARY! RIGGING THE PRIMARY! NOW HILLARY'S INVOLVEMENT WITH SETH RICH'S MURDER!RELATED: >>>/news/2874
Former DNC head Donna Brazile claims an FBI official warned her that Clinton planned to murder her, just like she did with Seth Rich.
Brazile claims in her book “Hacks” that a shadowy intelligence official urged her to install cameras, alarms and backup power at her house following the Seth Rich murder.
Thepoliticalinsider.com reports: From her book “Hacks”:
"I felt some responsibility for Seth Rich’s death. I didn’t bring him into the DNC, but I helped keep him there working on voting rights. With all I knew now about the Russians’ hacking, I could not help but wonder if they had played some part in his unsolved murder. Besides that, racial tensions were high that summer and I worried that he was murdered for being white on the wrong side of town. [My friend] Elaine expressed her doubts about that, and I heard her. The FBI said that they did not see any Russian fingerprints there."
Brazile repeatedly returns to the subject of being haunted by Rich’s murder, even though other Democrats have pounced on anyone who suggested that the murder was anything other than a robbery gone wrong. The DNC data staffer was killed days before Wikileaks began publishing its emails, and his valuables were not taken.
But Brazile says she had a “spook,” with connections to the intelligence community, who told her after the killing that she needed protection for herself, including cameras, alarms and backup power at her house, and that she heeded his advice.
Brazile was so concerned with Rich’s death that she used her brief, only phone call from Hillary Clinton after the election loss to bring him up. She asked Clinton to use some of the millions of dollars the campaign had in order to set up a reward fund to find his murderer. But Hillary said she “really had to go.”
I knew the campaign had over $3 million set aside in a legal fund. Could she help me get this lawsuit started? And don’t forget the murder of Seth Rich, I told her. Did she want to contribute to Seth’s reward fund? We still hadn’t found the person responsible for the tragic murder of this bright young DNC staffer.
You’re right, she said. We’re going to get to that. But she really had to go. She had made the call and checked it off her list, and I accepted after we said our good-byes that I might never heard from her again.https://archive.fo/oQJtahttp://yournewswire.com/donna-brazile-fbi-clinton-seth-rich/

Globalists BTFO, Again! Nationalist Parties Crush Center-Left Socialist Democrats in Sicily Elections
In hugely significant regional elections Sunday, populists handed the reigning Democratic Party a stinging defeat in Sicily, presaging serious trouble for the ailing center-left in next spring’s national election.
The globalist Democratic Party of former prime minister Matteo Renzi suffered a stunning defeat, picking up a paltry 19 percent of the vote and a distant third place, while the two Euro-skeptic populist contenders split the majority vote almost evenly.
Making a remarkable comeback was the indefatigable Silvio Berlusconi at the helm of a newly constituted center-right coalition consisting of his Forza Italia party, along with the conservative Northern League and the Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy).
The coalition’s candidate for governor of Sicily, Nello Musumeci, took 40 percent of the vote on the island, while Giancarlo Cancelleri of the anti-establishment Five-Star Movement took a healthy 35 percent.
In recent years, Sicily has suffered the brunt of Europe’s migrant crisis, as Italy’s primary port-of-call for African migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya. Many blame the ruling Democratic regime for Italy’s immigration disaster, for its failure to stand up to the European Union and control Italy’s outside borders.
All eyes were on the regional elections as an important indicator of Italians’ voting intentions for next spring’s national elections. The Northern League, in particular, needed to prove its ability to move beyond its separatist past to become a truly national party.https://archive.fo/pBoe2
The centre-Right’s candidate for governor of Sicily, backed by a coalition consisting of Mr Berlusconi’s Forza Italia party, the anti-immigration Northern League and a third Right-wing party, Brothers of Italy, won 39 per cent of the vote on the island, according to projections.
In second place was the anti-establishment Five Star Movement with 35 per cent, followed by the Democratic Party of former premier Matteo Renzi, which suffered a humiliating drubbing at the polls with just 19 per cent of the vote.https://archive.fo/uvYd9

Texas Church Shooter Was AntiFA Member Who Vowed To Start Civil War
At least 27 people have been killed after a gunman opened fire at a church in Texas during Sunday services, according to police.
The attack happened at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs in Wilson County. Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr ssaid that at least 27 people had been killed in the shooting and that the death toll was expected to rise.https://archive.fo/WM02x
The gunman who opened fire inside a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, has been identified as Devin Kelley, an Antifa member who vowed to start a civil war by “targeting white conservative churches” and causing anarchy in the United States.
Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr said that at least 27 people have been killed in the shooting, according to reports by the CNN and the BBC, with the confirmed death toll expected to climb in the coming hours.
Witnesses report they saw Devin Kelley walk into the Baptist Church in the small town 30 miles from San Antonio at 11:30am local time Sunday, according to KSAT-12.Devin Kelley, who killed at least 27 people and injured many more, was one of two shooters in the church, according to eyewitnesses, who also report Kelley carried an Antifa flag and told the churchgoers “this is a communist revolution” before unloading on the congregation, reloading several times.
Sheriff Joe Tackitt confirmed to Wilson County News that there have been “multiple fatalities” and the shooter has been “taken down.”
Devin Kelley’s Facebook page stated that he was an atheist and his interests included “Civil and social rights” and “Civil rights” as well as endorsements for local Texan Democratic political candidates. His page also featured photos of several high powered weapons.
His Facebook page was taken down without explanation less than an hour after the shooting.https://archive.fo/w4JLK

Globalization Crumbling: Austria Sends Strong Message By Appointing Anti-EU Foreign Minister
Norbert Hofer, who has repeatedly attacked the EU over deliberate destablization [amnesty], anti-free market and police state policies, will become the most important representative of the EU-critical Freedom Party (FPÖ) and take over the EU and world affairs agendas for Austria.
Sebastian Kurz, leader of the Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP), is holding coalition talks with the FPÖ to form a new government by Christmas.
Mr Hofer is considered a vehement critic of the notion of an superstate, and is cautious of Eurocrats.
FPÖ politicians have ultimately demanded Mr Kurz appoint a finance minister or a foreign minister of the far-right party or else they will force coalition talks to collapse.
Populist Mr Hofer is smooth performer in front of the cameras and has been instrumental in helping the FPÖ shed some of the harsher aspects of its image.
He has previously said that carrying guns is a “natural consequence” of amnesty.
Hofer’s appointment is a clear slap in the face for European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker who has expressed wishes to isolate and use sanctions against any far-right or populist governments swept to power or presidential office on the wave of popular anger against deliberate destablization.
Mr Hofer could use his position as foreign minister to influence other EU states to oppose Mr Juncker’s plans to impose a single tax system, one finance president and an EU army.
Mr Kurz should form his new government by Christmas and will become the youngest head of government in Europe.https://archive.fo/J8Nhlhttps://www.express.co.uk/news/world/876490/european-union-austria-sebastian-kurz-coalition-government-norbert-hofer-foreign-minister

The Storm Continues: Saudi Banks Freeze Accounts Of Arrested Globalist Royal Elites, Private Jets Grounded
Two days after the most stunning purge in recent Saudi history, the so-called "anti-corruption probe" - which was really a countercoup - that led to the arrest of dozens of Saudi Arabian royals, ministers and businessmen allowing Mohammed to further cement control over the Kingdom, appeared to be widening on Monday when, as Reuters reports, Saudi banks begun freezing the accounts of those arrested. The Saudi central bank ordered commercial banks to freeze the accounts of people under investigation in the probe, the Reuters sources said, adding that the number of accounts affected could run into the hundreds, although the names of those affected have yet to emerge.
“The freezing of accounts has already happened,” said another source. “The freezing is a precautionary measure that will end as soon as the suspects are either charged or pronounced innocent.” Considering that prince Alwaleed alone has over $19 billion in assets, including nearly a billion dollars in jewelry, plans, yachts, furniture and cash...
... the local central banks may have "accidentally" found an unexpectedly efficient way of refilling Saudi's dwindling foreign reserve account.
At the same time, fears of a broader crackdowns were spreading, and as Bloomberg reported this morning, the Olayan family, which runs one of Saudi Arabia’s biggest conglomerates, is putting plans to sell shares in some of its local assets on hold "amid slow economic growth in the kingdom." What it means is that right now it is a good idea to keep a very low profile.
Olayan Financing Co., which controls the billionaire family’s investments in the Middle East, decided not to proceed with an initial public offering of a holding company of about 20 local units, the people said, asking not to be identified because the discussions are private. Plans for the sale of the holding company, which may worth as much as $5 billion, could be revived in the future, they said.
Olayan had been working with Saudi Fransi Capital on the planned sale that could have happened as early as next year, people familiar with the matter said in March. It’s also working with HSBC Holdings Plc’s local unit on the 30 percent sale of its Health Water Bottling Co., people said in May. The IPOs would be the first time Olayan Financing sold shares in one of its Saudi businesses since at least 2000. The family still plans to proceed with the IPO of its water business, the people said.
Such fears appear justified, because as Reuters writes, the crackdown continued on Monday when the founder of one of the kingdom’s biggest travel companies was reportedly detained. Al Tayyar Travel plunged 10% in the opening minutes after the company quoted media reports as saying board member Nasser bin Aqeel al-Tayyar had been held by authorities. The company gave no details but online economic news service SABQ, which is close to the government, reported Tayyar had been detained as part of the anti-corruption probe.
Many more are coming: the front page of leading Saudi newspaper Okaz challenged businessmen on Monday to reveal the sources of their assets, asking: “Where did you get this?” in bright red text. Another headline from Saudi-owned al-Hayat warned: “After the launch (of the anti-corruption drive), the noose tightens, whomever you are!”

Leaked Secret Israeli Cable Confirms Israeli-Saudi Coordination To Provoke War
Early this morning, Israeli Channel 10 news published a leaked diplomatic cable which had been sent to all Israeli ambassadors throughout the world concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which began with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's unexpected resignation after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers, and led to the Saudis announcing that Lebanon had "declared war" against the kingdom.
The classified embassy cable, written in Hebrew, constitutes the first formal evidence proving that the Saudis and Israelis are deliberately coordinating to escalate the situation in the Middle East.
The explosive classified Israeli cable reveals the following:
On Sunday, just after Lebanese PM Hariri's shocking resignation, Israel sent a cable to all of its embassies with the request that its diplomats do everything possible to ramp up diplomatic pressure against Hezbollah and Iran.
The cable urged support for Saudi Arabia's war against Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen.
The cable stressed that Iran was engaged in "regional subversion".
Israeli diplomats were urged to appeal to the "highest officials" within their host countries to attempt to expel Hezbollah from Lebanese government and politics.
As is already well-known, the Saudi and Israeli common cause against perceived Iranian influence and expansion in places like Syria, Lebanon and Iraq of late has led the historic bitter enemies down a pragmatic path of unspoken cooperation as both seem to have placed the break up of the so-called "Shia crescent" as their primary policy goal in the region. For Israel, Hezbollah has long been its greatest foe, which Israeli leaders see as an extension of Iran's territorial presence right up against the Jewish state's northern border.
This is a EXPLOSIVE thread that proves how Saudi and Israel are deliberately coordinating to escalate the situation in the MidEast. https://t.co/dMe4PnkwTf
— Trita Parsi (@tparsi) November 6, 2017
The Israeli reporter who obtained the document is Barak Ravid, senior diplomatic correspondent for Channel 10 News. Ravid announced the following through Twitter yesterday:
I published on channel 10 a cable sent to Israeli diplomats asking to lobby for Saudis/Harir and against Hezbollah. The cable sent from the MFA in Jerusalem [Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs] to all Israeli embassies toes the Saudi line regarding the Hariri resignation.
The Israeli diplomats were instructed to demarch their host governments over the domestic political situation in Lebanon - a very rare move.
The cable said: "You need to stress that the Hariri resignation shows how dangerous Iran and Hezbollah are for Lebanon's security."
"Hariri's resignation proves wrong the argument that Hezbollah participation in the government stabilizes Lebanon," the cable added.
The cable instructed Israeli diplomats to support Saudi Arabia over its war with the Houthis in Yemen. The cable also stressed: "The missile launch by the Houthis towards Riyadh calls for applying more pressure on Iran & Hezbollah."

DNC Turns Against Donna Brazile, Accuses Her Of Being 'Russian Agent' After Admitting DNC Rigged Primary
Hillary Clinton’s campaign staffers and the DNC have turned on former chairwoman Donna Brazile, accusing her of being a “Russian agent”.
In the wake of bombshell accusations by Brazile that Clinton controlled the DNC and rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders, senior DNC staffers have hit back with a scathing open letter calling Brazile a “Russian agent” guilty of spreading “fake news.”
Huffingtonpost.com reports: The open letter signed by more than 100 people involved in Clinton’s White House bid, including chairman John Podesta and vice chairwoman Huma Abedin, said the staffers “do not recognize the campaign” that Brazile “portrays in the book.”
They also say they are “shocked” that Brazile reportedly considered for a time pushing Vice President Joe Biden as the Democratic candidate amid her concerns about Clinton’s health after the former secretary of state fainted during a Sept. 11 memorial event.
“It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health,” the letter said.
Asked to respond to that allegation on Sunday, Brazile told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos she was “concerned about the entire party, not just the presidential ― but the senatorial, congressional, and all the other candidates.”
Brazile said she was “under tremendous pressure” to come up with an alternative to Clinton after the candidate fainted. “I didn’t want a plan B. Plan A was great for me,” she said Sunday. “I supported Hillary and I wanted her to win. But we were under pressure.”
Brazile says in her book she believed Russians were involved in the hacked WikiLeaks emails, the Post reported. Brazile said she tried to persuade Republican officials to agree to a joint statement condemning Russian interference, but they ignored her entreaties.
“I’m not Patsey the slave,” Brazile said she told them, referring to a character in the film, “12 Years a Slave.” “Y’all keep whipping me and whipping me and you never give me any money or any way to do my damn job. I am not going to be your whipping girl!”
Brazile took over the DNC position in July 2016. She replaced Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who was forced out after WikiLeaks released hacked emails that showed her displaying favoritism for Clinton during the primaries.https://archive.fo/grSHBhttp://yournewswire.com/dnc-donna-brazile-russian-agent/

Leaked German Army Report Predicts Collapse of Communist EU By 2040, End of Modern Globalisation
The complete disintegration of the European Union (EU) and the West over the next two decades is a serious proposition, according to a shock internal report drawn up by the German Army.
An extensive 102-page report, called ‘Strategic Forecast 2040’ was published by the head of the Ministry of Defence at the end of February this year but was kept then kept under wraps, but has now been seen by the German weekly newspaper Der Spiegel.
The report outlines six scenarios for how social trends and international conflicts are likely to play out and influence German security.
The Bundeswehr plays out how social trends and international conflicts could influence German security policy in the coming decades in the confidential document.
In one of the six scenarios ("The Collapse of the European Union and Germany in Reactive Mode"), the authors assume a "multiple confrontation".
The future projection describes a world in which the international order erodes after "decades of instability", the value systems worldwide drift apart and globalisation is stopped.
The Bundeswehr strategists writes: ”EU enlargement has been largely abandoned, and more states have left the community. Europe has lost its global competitiveness.
"The increasingly disorderly, sometimes chaotic and conflict-prone world has dramatically changed the security environment of Germany and Europe."
In the fifth scenario ("West against East"), some eastern EU countries have frozen the state of European integration while others have "joined the Eastern bloc."
In the fourth ("multipolar competition") extremism is on the rise and there are EU partners who "even occasionally seem to seek a specific approach to Russia's 'state capitalist model' ".
The document expressly makes no prognosis, but all scenarios are "plausible with the time horizon 2040."
The report would appear to throw cold water over those in the EU who want far greater integration, including the establishment of a European-wide army.https://archive.is/CzUmVhttps://www.express.co.uk/news/world/875434/EU-news-West-collapse-Germany-army-Bundeswehr-Macron-Juncker

Globalists BTFO! High Court of Austria BANS Foreign (((And Dual Citizenships))) From Political Service
Read the paperwork. Check with your parents. It's not that hard.
That's the TL;DR (too long; didn't read) version of what the High Court has ruled in the Citizenship Seven cases.
Movers and shakers on Capital Hill had yearned for some help to interpret the dual citizenship ban set out in section 44 of the constitution.
For 25 years there was a test — but it didn't cover the quirks of the seven politicians thrust into this modern constitutional mess.
In 1992, the court delivered its finding in the case of Sykes v Cleary, and claimed someone would be sweet if they took "all reasonable steps" to renounce their foreign nationality.
The new cases brought up an interesting argument: if you don't know you're a foreigner, how can you renounce it?
Instead of throwing out the 1992 "reasonable steps" test, the 2017 justices (none of whom had ruled on section 44 before) thought it was bang-on.
And all seven justices agreed — but the court did add some qualifiers.
It rejected the argument that ignorance of dual nationality gets you off the hook, which was bad news for Barnaby Joyce, Fiona Nash and Malcolm Roberts.
The court also stressed the need for candidates to take their decision to run for parliament seriously, and do their homework before ticking the box to say they weren't breaching the nation's founding document.
Common sense, right?
The justices went further to argue that to be a fully-fledged foreign national, you actually have to benefit from your citizenship — Nick Xenophon may have been a UK Overseas Citizen, but he couldn't even enter the Old Dart as one of its own.
The aim is to keep out those with divided loyalties.https://archive.fo/f5xLIhttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-10-28/what-has-the-high-courts-citizenship-decision-taught-us/9093530

US Military Forces Surround North Korea, Ready For War, As Kim Jong-un Hides In His Bunker
North Korea is surrounded by a wall of US warships, bombers and missiles with more than 80,000 soldiers on alert as Donald Trump heads for Asia.
The US President is jetting into the Pacific this week for a whistle-stop tour of the nations surrounding North Korea.
Trump will be popping in for one-on-one meetings with the leaders of China, South Korea and Japan – with Kim Jong-un’s nukes right at the top of the agenda.
At his back with be a the world’s biggest military war machine – poised to strike should the crisis go south with North Korea.
He visited the US Pacific Command just days ago – who will oversee every single vessel, plane and soldier sitting in a ring of steel around Kim.
Daily Star Online can now reveal the monstrous arsenal at Trump’s fingertips as he faces down North Korea.
US forces have been packing into the region as the tensions are set to snap with North Korea over its quest for ICBM.
Three US aircraft carriers are currently operating in the Pacific in an colossal flex of Trump’s military biceps.
USS Nimitz, USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Ronald Reagan became the first trio of carriers to operate in the region for a decade.
Each of these three warship bring with it a fully stocked wing of up to 90 warplanes and choppers.
While steaming alongside are their escorts of destroyers and submarines making up the US’s mighty carrier strike groups.
The US’s 7th Fleet has its headquarters in Japan – and brings up to 70 ships and submarines under its command, including 14 missile-packed destroyers.
Just this week, a squadron of 12 F-35 fighter planes screamed over the Pacific and landed at their new base in Japan.
More than 100 bases are scattered across the islands, with around 50,000 servicemen stationed there.
Meanwhile, right on Kim’s doorstep there are more than 30,000 US soldiers stations in bases in South Korea.
The island paradise hides the US’s fleet of nuclear-capable B-2 bombers, as well bunk busting B-1B Lancers.
Colossal B-52 Stratofortress warplanes also can bee seen rolling around Andersen Air Force Base.
Each of these is capable of carrying 70,000lbs of bombs and 20 cruise missiles.https://archive.fo/rRqIhhttps://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/657148/North-Korea-War-US-Donald-Trump-Asia-Japan-Nuclear-Missile-Bombers-Warships-Kim-Jong-un

Syria Liberated! Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/CIA/MOSSAD) Loses Control Over Last Occupied City
The end of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) caliphate; (terrorists once armed and funded by the CIA and Mossad to destabilize the Middle East, oust elected presidents, install puppet dictators whom cozy up to Western elitists creating crisises via amnesty/open border migrant programs to subjugate civilized Western societies as an excuse to install their fascist police state industries $$$); lost the last-remaining city under their control in Syria and its final stronghold in Iraq along the border.
“Frankly the tempo of our operations is going to reduce as Daesh [ISIS] are beaten in Iraq and in Syria,” conceded Air Commander Johnny Stringer in charge of Britain’s contribution to US-led air coalition against the Islamic State, reports the Telegraph.
ISIS’s so-called caliphate had “all but disappeared,” declared the commander.
ISIS’s so-called “caliphate” was depleted to ruins after the jihadist group was forced out of its remaining strongholds in Iraq and Syria—most recently al-Qaim and Deir Ezzor, respectively, notes Daily Mail.
Thanks to Donald J. Trump who ordered the CIA to stop funding their Islamic "moderate rebels", ISIS/ISIL has lost a huge amount of funding and arms aid over the last 6 months, witness here: https://archive.fo/nxiAi
Here is all the documented evidence that both the CIA and Mossad were directly involved with terrorist funding, witness here: https://archive.fo/eO0u6

REAL JUSTICE, TEXAS STYLE: Pedophile’s Body Found On Train Tracks After Acquittal On Technicality
A notorious Texas pedophile, who was charged with raping a 6-year-old girl and then acquitted on a technicality, has been killed by a vigilante group who tied his body to train tracks.
Anik Mustafi, 34, from Houston, Texas, was discovered in the early hours of Saturday morning, his body cut in half by a freight train.
The train driver alerted the authorities that he had run over the body, explaining that the body was located “just around a bend” and although he received an automated alert that something may be on the tracks, he “had no time to stop the train.”
Mustafi was arrested in May and charged with predatory sexual assault against a child and first degree sexual abuse after his neighbor claimed she caught him molesting her 6-year-old daughter. It was alleged Mustafi, a factory worker, groomed the girl for months before luring her into his car and assaulting her.
However after being charged, Mustafi walked free from the court after the judge controversially ruled that the prosecution did not have enough evidence to convict the 34-year-old. A forensic laboratory “accidentally destroyed” evidence the prosecution was relying on to prove their case.
The judge apologized to the family of the alleged victim and acknowledged there are “flaws in our legal system” that sometimes allow perpetrators to walk free on technicalities.
The alleged victim’s family said they were “devastated” that Mustafi had been allowed to walk free from court.
But Anik Mustafi’s freedom did not last long. It seems local Houston pedophile vigilantes decided to take matters into their own hands, and “kidnapped” the 34-year-old factory worker early on Saturday morning, before tying him to a train track at a location which guaranteed the driver would not have time to stop.
Investigating officers described his death scene as resembling a “gangland-style execution“.
Houston police say they are currently “following leads” but have yet to make any arrests for the murder.https://archive.fo/fsFpDhttp://yournewswire.com/pedophile-body-train-tracks/

The Tor Project Beefs Up Security With More Onion Services, New Encryption Schemes
While some people still associate the Tor anonymity network solely with the criminal elements of the dark web, it’s increasingly being used by publishers such as Facebook and the New York Times to avoid censorship in certain countries, along with everyday users wishing to protect their privacy. But the technology is over ten years old now, and more governments and hackers are targeting its systems, which is why a next generation of onion services is being added.
The Tor Project—the group behind Tor—has been working on the update, which will strengthen security and keep data anonymized, for the last four years. It’s now available in an alpha release.
On the cryptography side, we are looking at cutting-edge crypto algorithms and improved authentication schemes. On the protocol end, we redesigned the directory system to defend against info leaks and reduce the overall attack surface. For example, did you know that in the legacy onion system, the network could learn about your onions? However, with this next-generation design, your onion address is completely private and only known to you and whoever you choose to disclose it to.
Most Tor users are unlikely to notice any of the changes, though the new .onion domain names will be longer. The Tor Project said that as the current code stabilizes, more features will be added in the future, including advanced client authorization, improved guard algorithms, and offline service keys.
As the bugs are ironed out and extra features are added to the new iteration, the legacy onion system will remain the default option, though the plan is to phase out the older technology in a few years’ time.
Back in February, a vigilante hacker associated with hacktivist group Anonymous took down about 20 percent of the Dark Web, apparently a reaction to discovering gigabytes of child pornography.https://archive.fo/FKBCd
Discussing the cryptography that’s used in the new implementation, George Kadianakis, from the Tor Project, said:
“We are looking at cutting-edge crypto algorithms and improved authentication schemes. On the protocol end, we redesigned the directory system to defend against info leaks and reduce the overall attack surface. For example, did you know that in the legacy onion system, the network could learn about your onions? However, with this next-generation design, you onion address is completely private and only known to you and whoever you choose to disclose it to.”
The new implementation is also made more secure by the use of a cleaner codebase which will mean fewer bugs will go unnoticed, and make developers’ lives a lot less stressful. The changes, according to the Tor Project, are “needed” because they fix the shortcomings of the old design but also act as a strong foundation for future onion work.
Going forward the new and old implementations will sit side by side while bugs are squashed and new features are implemented. When it gets to an acceptable level, the new implementation will become the default offering and then when the community gives the go-ahead the old implementation will be phased out - this is expected to happen over the course of a few years to prevent destabilisation.https://archive.fo/mOr80

Good! President Trump Drafting Executive Order To Kill Obamacare's Individual Mandate
After having previously cut so-called "cost reduction subsidies" (see: Trump To Scrap Crucial Obamacare Insurer Subsidy) and the marketing budget for Obamacare, Trump is now reportedly ready to also repeal the legislation's controversial "individual mandate" which taxes people who choose to forego health insurance.
According to the Washington Examiner an executive order has already been drafted to scrap the mandate but has not yet been executed only due to ongoing GOP debates over whether or not to include the repeal in the pending tax bill.https://archive.fo/23LpShttp://www.washingtonexaminer.com/trump-readies-executive-order-to-unravel-obamacares-individual-mandate/article/2639728
The Trump administration has prepared an executive order that would unravel Obamacare's individual mandate, but has put it on hold to see whether it might be included in the Republican tax bill instead, a GOP senator told the Washington Examiner.
According to the senator, an executive order is sitting with the Office of Management and Budget waiting for approval. President Trump decided to delay the executive order after Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., pushed for the inclusion of the individual mandate repeal in the tax bill, and has been supportive of its inclusion in statements he has made on Twitter.
Of course, including the individual mandate repeal in the tax legislation is intended create billions in budget savings and offset lower tax receipts but it could come with the unfortunate side effect of alienating potential mainstream GOP votes in the Senate who refused to support the Obamacare repeal efforts earlier this year.
Including repeal of the individual mandate in the tax bill instead of through executive order would create billions in budget savings that Republicans need to pay for tax cuts. According to a Congressional Budget Office report published in December 2016, repeal of the individual mandate would save $416 billion over a decade, since it would mean fewer subsidy payments to people who sign up. A new CBO report is expected Monday.
The repeal is not currently in the tax bill, known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, but House Speaker Paul Ryan said this weekend that it was on the negotiation table among House Republicans.
"We have an active conversation with our members on a whole host of ideas on things to add to this bill and that's one of the things being discussed," he said.
The senator who spoke to the Washington Examiner, who asked to remain anonymous, thinks colleagues could embrace repeal in the tax bill, because the revenue generated "pays for so many tax cuts."
According to the Washington Examiner, Trump cannot repeal the individual mandate through executive order, but he can broaden "hardship exemptions," which under Obamacare are left to the discretion of the administration. The exemptions allow customers to have ways to get out of paying the fine for not having coverage, which is $695 per adult or 2.5 percent of income, whichever is higher.https://archive.fo/5rOvChttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-06/trump-drafting-executive-order-kill-obamacares-individual-mandate-report

Good! Saudi Purge Signals Death Of Bush-Clinton-Obama Era Globalism
The Clinton and Bush era of the last 30 years is about to come to an end in light of the sudden Saudi Arabian purge of Clinton and Bush allies.
Brazile’s book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House” contains several bombshells, including that Hillary Clinton did in fact rig the 2016 primary against Bernie Sanders, and that Brazile felt like a “slave” who feared for her life following the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.
“That means that Brazile knew Rich had been murdered for political purposes,” says insider Roger Stone, adding that Julian Assange of WikiLeaks confirmed his sources were not Russian, and were in “great physical danger.”
Brazile is the first prominent Democrat to turn on Clinton in what appears to be a sacrifice by the establishment, as Clinton’s self-centered behavior no longer serves their interests, and they need to make the persecution of Trump seem less politically motivated.
Brazile even pointed out that Bernie was more popular than Clinton, saying: “I did not trust the polls. I told [Sanders] I had visited states around the country and I found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere.”
The accurate coverage of the Uranium One scandal by the mainstream media is another indicator that the establishment is ready to dump Clinton.
Another significant development tied to Clinton’s downfall is the sudden purge of corrupt royalty in Saudi Arabia by King Salman, including ten princes and 38 senior cabinet members.
It’s worth noting that Saudi Arabia accounted for 20% of the Clinton campaign’s funding in 2016.Among the royals arrested was billionaire and Clinton Foundation donor Al-Waleed bin Talal, best known for picking a fight with Trump on Twitter during the 2016 Presidential Election.
You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America.
Withdraw from the U.S presidential race as you will never win. — الوليد بن طلال (@Alwaleed_Talal) December 11, 2015
Trump, being a counterpuncher, hit back in kind.

Neo-con Bush Family Fears Globalists Will Lose Control Of Republican Party
Neo-con Bush Family Fears Globalists Will Lose Control Of Republican Party
Former President George W. Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, both criticize President Trump in a new book to be released this month, with George W. Bush admitting that, despite Trump’s political affiliation, he’s worried “that I will be the last Republican president.”
George H.W. Bush also calls Trump a “blowhard” in the book, “The Last Republicans,” by Mark K. Updegrove, which was previewed by The New York Times and CNN on Friday.
"I don't like him. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader,” the senior Bush said, according to the author. He also commented on Trump’s “ego.”
“Wow, this guy doesn't know what it means to be president,” the younger Bush said. He indicated that a president should not “exploit the anger, incite it” but rather “come up with ideas to deal with it.”
Neither man voted for Trump in the last election, and George H.W. Bush confirms in the book that he voted for Hillary Clinton. George W. Bush said he left the top of his ballot blank and did not vote for Clinton because she has “bad judgment.”https://archive.fo/RLVzDhttp://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/358745-george-w-bush-im-worried-that-i-will-be-the-last-republican

Three major news networks—ABC, CBS, and NBC— failed to cover on their nightly news programs Thursday the explosive allegations from Donna Brazile that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) rigged the 2016 Democratic primary in Hillary Clinton’s favor.
Brazile claimed in an excerpt from her soon-to-be-released book that Clinton’s campaign had control over the DNC’s pocketbook and strategy in exchange for paying down the Party’s 2012 presidential campaign debt, explaining that the Party skewed the primary in Clinton’s favor through backroom financial deals so she could easily beat Bernie Sanders.
Despite these bombshell allegations, ABC, CBS, and NBC did not cover these revelations on their evening newscasts.https://archive.fo/jmO2h
Disgraced former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has admitted that the DNC rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders in order to allow their favorite candidate to win.
Schultz issued a statement after he successor, interim chair Donna Brazile, released a book excerpt where she said Wasserman Schultz was ‘not a good manager’ and allowed Clinton to take over the party.
‘It was a tremendous honor to be asked by President Obama to serve as chair of the DNC,’ the Florida Democrat said in a statement.
‘I am proud of the work our team did to support Democrats up and down the ballot in the 2016 election and to re-elect the president in 2012.’
Hillary Clinton’s campaign seized control of the Democratic National Committee months before she won her party’s nomination, diverted resources away from struggling state parties, and allowed the national party to accumulate a mountain of debt, writes Brazile.
Brazile made the charge in a tell-all article about the dysfunction and mismanagement she uncovered at the organization she was brought in to run after hacked emails revealed efforts by party insiders to tilt the scales toward Clinton.
Brazile, who was herself thrown into controversy when it was revealed she passed on debate questions to the Clinton camp, unloads on her predecessor, Wasserman Schultz, and discloses a smoking gun document in the form of a fundraising agreement that sent resources to the Clinton camp.
Astonishingly, Elizabeth Warren – who campaigned with Clinton – said she believed Brazile.https://archive.fo/LLZqs

Massive New Leak Exposes Tax-Haven Secrets, US Political & Big Buisness Connections To Russian Industry
One year after the Panama Papers revealed billions in assets are held in offshore "tax haven" accounts by some of the world's most powerful and wealthy individuals, on Sunday a huge new leak of financial documents disclosed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) - a global network that won the Pulitzer Prize this year for its work on the Panama Papers - and its 94 media partners has revealed how the powerful and ultra-wealthy, including the Queen's private estate, secretly invest vast amounts of cash in offshore tax havens. Of particular interest for the US media will be the discovery that Donald Trump's commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, is shown to have a stake in a firm dealing with Russians sanctioned by the US, including Vladimir Putin's immediate family, which Ross failed to clearly disclose prior to his confirmation.
The leak, dubbed the Paradise Papers, contains 13.4 million documents, mostly from the Bermuda-based offshore finance law firm, Appleby, has been investigated by 95 media groups, with the findings released today. The records expand on the revelations from the leak of offshore documents that spawned the 2016 Panama Papers investigation. The new files shine a light on a different cast of underexplored island havens, including some with cleaner reputations and higher price tags, such as the Cayman Islands and Bermuda.
The year-long investigation exposes offshore interest and activities of more than 120 politicians and world leaders. That includes ties between Russia and U.S President Donald Trump’s billionaire commerce secretary Wilbur Ross. It also highlights the offshore activities of another 12 Trump allies.
The Paradise Papers' key findings summarized:
Reveals offshore interests and activities of more than 120 politicians and world leaders, including Queen Elizabeth II, and 13 advisers, major donors and members of U.S. President Donald J. Trump
Exposes the tax engineering of more than 100 multinational corporations, including Apple, Nike and Botox-maker Allergan
Reveals tax haven shopping sprees by multinational companies in Africa and Asia that use shell companies in Mauritius and Singapore to reduce taxes
Shines a light on secretive deals and hidden companies connected to Glencore, the world’s largest commodity trader, and provides detailed accounts of the company’s negotiations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for valuable mineral resources
Provides details of how owners of jets and yachts, including royalty and sports stars, used Isle of Man tax-avoidance structures
That said, as the BBC admits, "the vast majority of the transactions involve no legal wrongdoing."

WHY The Catalan Independence Movement Is Failing
WHY The Catalan Independence Movement Is Failinghttps://archive.fo/kReDzhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-04/why-catalan-independence-movement-failing
The Catalan fight for independence is not how conflicts are fought throughout history, let alone how they are won.
Some movements for national independence have succeeded in history, others have not. Presently, it seems that the Catalan bid is destined to fail. Maybe in the future Catalans will change their strategy and achieve their goal, but at the moment of writing the Catalan independence movement can be described as a storm in a teacup.
We therefore looked at what worked in the past and is missing right now, or what clearly is not working.1. Trusting the EU? A Bad Plan!
Catalan independence is about claiming sovereignty from Madrid, just to immediately relinquish it to Brussels. If this had been decades ago, before the 1992 Maastricht Treaty, maybe it wouldn’t have mattered. Now, especially after the Brexit vote, the EU leadership has decided to push forward with the European Federalist project, starting possibly with a Eurozone financial minister as proposed by French President Macron.The latter’s plan also includes a Eurozone budget and that’s where the Catalan plan makes even less sense: part of the resentment towards Madrid is because Catalans do not like regional fiscal transfers towards the rest of Spain. Would they like it if fiscal transfers were towards other European regions via Macron’s proposed Eurozone budget?Catalans also resent the “austerity” imposed by Madrid. Yet it’s not Madrid imposing it, it’s Brussels. Yet Catalans want to dump Madrid because of austerity and then join Brussels?
Why leave a political system because of its unnerving centralism just to join one that is shifting towards centralization, even further from the will of the people?The EU also does not like referenda.
Mainly because it tends to be on the losing side. It lost the ones on the “European Constitution” in 2004 in the Netherlands and France. The Constitution was then pragmatically swapped into “Lisbon’s Treaty” with a number of formal changes, but even that one was rejected in a referendum by the Irish. This time, the EU leadership forced a remake, finally succeeding.
More recent examples saw the Greek referendum on austerity in the summer of 2015, where the Greeks rejected the “Troika”, just to be forced into a humiliating surrender; the Dutch referendum on the association treaty with Ukraine, which also rejected the agreement; and the already mentioned one in the UK on the European Union membership. The EU’s track record in referenda is poor at best, thus it’s no surprise that EU leaders distrust direct democracy. Indeed, the European Commission through the agency of its President Juncker, refused to support the Catalan bid, fearing an opening of Pandora’s box and further political fragmentation, that would allow anyone to leave political systems (including the EU) at will. One Brexit was enough.
The EU can’t also let Catalonia go without incurring needless risks; nor can Spain. As we explained previously, Catalan independence could spark a second Eurozone debt crisis.
Catalan nationalists chose to overlook the centralist, pro-austerity and anti-direct democracy nature of the current European Union. A bit too much to be ignored.

BOOM! Tony Podesta Arrested, Indictments Issued Against Hillary Clinton & John Podesta
Democrat lobbyist Tony Podesta was arrested Saturday night and taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals office as new indictments were also issued against Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.
Tony Podesta is the founder of the Podesta Group and brother of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chair. He was forced to resign earlier this week amid an ongoing criminal investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, as rumors swirled that a sealed indictment may have been issued against him.
Scoop: Tony Podesta is one of the sealed indictments.
— James Brower 🍦 (@jbro_1776) November 3, 2017
According to sources within the U.S. Marshals Office, Tony voluntarily handed himself in late on Saturday night on the basis that there would be no media coverage of his arrest.
Lawyers for Hillary Clinton and John Podesta are pleading with Mueller to keep their indictments sealed and have similarly agreed to hand themselves in next week under the same agreement.
Despite the media blackout, a public record confirms Tony Podesta’s arrest in Washington D.C and can be viewed online here.https://archive.fo/rMr61http://yournewswire.com/tony-podesta-arrested-indictments-hillary/

Lawsuit: Top Soros Fund Manager Ran Human Trafficking ‘Sex Dungeon’ of Imprisoned Women in NYC
A scathing and massive $27 million lawsuit was just filed on behalf of three Florida models against a former top investment fund manager for George Soros. Howard ‘Howie’ Rubin, 62—who was featured in Liar’s Poker, a book described as ‘defining Wall St.’—is accused of rape, assault, kidnapping, and human trafficking.
The women in the lawsuit, two of which are former Playboy bunnies, accuse Rubin of operating an $8 million penthouse in Manhattan which contains a secret “dungeon of sex toys, masks, and BDSM apparatus.” In this penthouse, according to the lawsuit, the women would be imprisoned while Rubin had his violent way with them.
According to the lawsuit, Rubin would lure the girls to New York on JetBlue flights after connecting with them on Instagram. Once they arrived in Manhattan, Rubin would drug them, gag and bound them, and then violently beat and rape them while in his sex dungeon. The lawsuit states that he hit a woman so hard that she passed out as he demanded she call him “daddy.”
“I’m going to rape you like I rape my daughter,” he would say according to two of the alleged victims. He would then attack and punch them so violently and aggressive, that one of his blows “flipped” a woman’s breast implant.
As the Mail reports, they say he then covered up the alleged rapes and attacks and hushed them by paying them up to $5,000 each.
According to the Mail:
Rubin, a notorious Wall Street trader who is blamed for incurring $377 million of losses at Merrill Lynch in 1987 and who is featured in Liar’s Poker, has not yet responded to their allegations. He is named alongside associated Stephanie Shon, Jennifer Powers, and lawyer Yifat Schnur in the lawsuit.
Rubin has been married since the 1980s to his former Harvard Business School classmate Mary Henry. They have three children together.
The lawsuit describes four different incidents in 2016. The women sometimes traveled to meet him in pairs and on other occasions they went alone, they said.
According to the lawsuit, Rubin’s associates Stephanie Shon and Jennifer Powers—a former model who claimed to have slept with Rubin—acted as recruiters for the man’s sadistic plan. The models were offered thousands of dollars and given posh treatment and plane tickets to New York in exchange for their ‘companionship’ with Ruben.
The women then met Rubin at a nearby bar for dinner and drinks where they were drugged, beat, and raped before he would leave them “to go home to his wife and kids,” the lawsuit states.
The victims were often beaten so badly that they required medical treatment. According to the lawsuit, they were given more money and their medical bills paid in exchange for their silence.https://archive.fo/CoK9Khttp://www.thedailysheeple.com/top-soros-fund-manager-ran-human-trafficking-sex-dungeon-of-imprisoned-women-in-nyc-lawsuit_112017

Internet Freedom Guru Kim Dotcom Wins Settlement Over Military-Style Police Raid
Kim Dotcom and former wife Mona have reached a settlement with police over the heavy-handed raid on their home in 2012. The exact amount is confidential but is believed to run into at least six figures, amounts that have also been paid to other Dotcom associates including Bram van der Kolk and Mathias Ortmann.
It’s been spoken about thousands of times in the past half-decade but the 2012 raid on Kim Dotcom’s home in New Zealand was extraordinary by any standard.
At the behest of the US Government, 72 police officers – including some from the elite heavily armed Special Tactics Group (STG) – descended on Dotcom’s Coatesville mansion. Two helicopters were used during the raid, footage from which was later released to the public as the scale and nature of the operation became clear.
To be clear, no one in the Dotcom residence had any history of violence. Nevertheless, considerable force was used to attack rooms in the building, all of it aimed at detaining the founder of what was then the world’s most famous file-hosting site. The FBI, it seems, would stop at nothing in pursuit of the man they claimed was the planet’s most notorious copyright infringer.
As the dust settled, it became clear that the overwhelming use of force was not only unprecedented but also completely unnecessary, a point Dotcom himself became intent on pressing home.
The entrepreneur was particularly angry at the treatment received by former wife Mona, who was seven months pregnant with twins at the time. So, in response, the Megaupload founder and his wife sued the police, hoping to hold the authorities to account for their actions.
The case has dragged on for years but this morning came news of a breakthrough. According to information released by Kim Dotcom, the lawsuit has been resolved after a settlement was reached with the police.
“Today, Mona and I are glad to reach a confidential settlement of our case against the New Zealand Police. We have respect for the Police in this country. They work hard and have, with this one exception, treated me and my family with courtesy and respect,” Dotcom said.
“We were shocked at the uncharacteristic handling of my arrest for a non-violent Internet copyright infringement charge brought by the United States, which is not even a crime in New Zealand.”
Dotcom said police could have simply asked to be let in, at which point he could have been arrested. Instead, under pressure from US authorities and “special interests in Hollywood”, they turned the whole event into a massive publicity stunt aimed at pleasing the US.
“The New Zealand Police we know do not carry guns. They try to resolve matters in a non-violent manner, unlike what we see from the United States. We are sad that our officers, good people simply doing their job, were tainted by US priorities and arrogance,” Dotcom said.https://archive.fo/iIJTPhttps://torrentfreak.com/kim-dotcom-wins-settlement-military-style-police-raid-171103/

Child Trafficker, Wanted By Police, Whipped To Death By Vigilantes
A notorious Russian pedophile accused of running a child trafficking ring in and around Russia was captured by vigilantes and whipped to death with cable ties, according to reports.
The man’s grisly death was filmed and the footage has been used by anti-pedophile vigilantes to send a message to other child traffickers and abusers.
The man, identified as Aleksey Frumkin, was a suspected child trafficker and pedophile who ran a trafficking ring in and around Russia. Wanted by the authorities on child trafficking charges, Frumkin was reported missing in May, but the newly released footage shows that vigilante justice was served.
Child abusers are considered by Russian President Vladimir Putin as the lowest of the low, “lower in evolutionary terms than a rock spider“, and the pro-Russian militant in the video, who identifies himself as “Olkhon,” apparently shares the same view.
The public execution was carried out in the town of Communar, Donetsk Oblast, in Southern Ukraine.
After Frumkin was captured, he tried to convince the vigilantes they were confused and that he was a drug dealer and not part of a pedophilia ring, saying: “Stop please! I’ll say what you need. I will call another drug dealer and he will arrive with drugs.”
This statement did not impress the Olkhon, the anti-pedophile vigilante, who also has a strong dislike of drug dealers.
Olkhon, who comes from the Russian city of Novosibirsk, said: “Drug dealers and junkies, please come here to us, we have a way to deal with people like you.
“Come to us and we will cure all of you.”
The militant then declares that Frumkin “is a pedophile who will be slaughtered like a dog.”
“See how he has p**d and s
“He thinks we’ll have some mercy on him, but we will kill him.”
The video was posted on the social network VKontakte by a community of pro-Russian rebels thought to be behind the killing.https://archive.fo/t5DaWhttp://yournewswire.com/child-trafficker-police-death/

Saudi Arabia Arrests 11 Princes, Including Billionaire Globalist Alwaleed bin Talal
In a shocking development Saturday, the Saudi Arabian government arrested prominent billionaire Waleed bin Talal, a member of the royal Saudi family with deep ties to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Arrests were carried out by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s recently-formed anti-corruption committee and included bin Talal, ten senior princes, and dozens of ministers for corruption and money laundering charges.https://archive.fo/OCY7s
Saudi Arabia announced the arrest on Saturday night of the prominent billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, plus at least 10 other princes, four ministers and tens of former ministers.
The announcement of the arrests was made over Al Arabiya, the Saudi-owned satellite network whose broadcasts are officially approved. Prince Alwaleed’s arrest is sure to send shock waves both through the kingdom and the world’s major financial centers.
He controls the investment firm Kingdom Holding and is one of the world’s richest men, owning or having owned major stakes in News Corp, Citigroup, Twitter and many other well-known companies. The prince also controls satellite television networks watched across the Arab world.https://archive.fo/tww1B
According to al Arabiya, among those sacked and/or arrested are Moteib Bin Abdullah, Minister of the National Guard, and Prince Khalid bin Ayyaf has been appointed as his replacement. A second Royal Order was issued to relieve Minister of Economy and Planning, Adel al-Faqieh, from his duties, and the appointment of Mohammed Al Tuwaijri as Minister of Economy and Planning.
According to a Royal Decree issued by King Salman on Saturday the anti-corruption committee is chaired by the Crown Prince with the membership of: Chairman of the Monitoring and Investigation Commission, Chairman of the National Anti-Corruption Authority, Chief of the General Audit Bureau, Attorney General and Head of State Security.
As Saudi analysts were quick to point out, the purge by the Saudi King means that King Abdallah’s last remnants (Riyad firmer gov. & head of Nat. Guard); media moguls; SAGIA & financial policy officials have been purged.
As Bloomberg notes, changing the head of the National Guard, an institution that’s been controlled by the clan of the late King Abdullah, “is not like changing the minister of oil,” said Kamran Bokhari, a senior analyst with Geopolitical Futures and a senior fellow with the Center for Global Policy. “I wouldn’t be surprised if this leads to greater fissures within the royal family.”
Arabiya adds that King Salman also issued sacking and replacement orders for Admiral Abdullah bin Sultan bin Mohammed Al-Sultan, the Commander of the Naval Forces, is to be terminated and be retired; his replacement is Vice Admiral Fahd bin Abdullah Al-Ghifaili, to be promoted to the rank of admiral and be appointed as Commander of the Naval Forces.
Additionally, Minister of Economy and Planning Adel al-Faqieh was replaced by Mohammed al-Tuwaijri, SPA said, quoting a royal decree. Commander of the Saudi Navy, Abdullah al-Sultan, was replaced with Fahad al-Ghafli. The king also replaced Minister of Economy and Planning Adel Fakeih withMohammad Al Tuwaijri, his deputy.

WTF? DNC Bans Recruitment Of ‘Cisgender Straight White Males’
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has banned the recruitment of “cisgender straight white males,” according to leaked emails.
Employees within the DNC looking to recruit new staff to work in the Technology Department were told by senior executives that straight white men were not allowed to be considered.
Dailywire.com reports: In an email issued to DNC insiders on Monday, Data Services manager Madeleine Leader announced that the Technology Department is looking to fill several positions and asked interested parties to forward the openings to their colleagues.
She included the following caveat:
I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, since they’re already in the majority.
In response to this email, an anonymous DNC source told The Daily Wire the following:
Clearly the DNC is doubling down on a failed strategy that has alienated staffers and voters alike. We want to be judged based on the quality of our work, not on identity politics. How can we trust the leadership of the DNC if they don’t even trust us?
The Daily Wire contacted Ms. Leader about the contents of her email, but she declined to comment.
After the latest scandals to plague the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential election, the new leadership under Tom Perez and Keith Ellison (D-MN) seek to rebrand the party as a more inclusive and welcoming community. Unfortunately, this email doesn’t exactly help their case.https://archive.fo/Fl1l7http://yournewswire.com/dnc-bans-cisgender-straight-white-males/

4 Key Las Vegas Shooting Witnesses Are Now Missing Or Dead
4 Key Las Vegas Shooting Witnesses Are Now Missing Or DeadALL RELATED: >>>/news/2075
; >>>/news/2321Four key Las Vegas shooting witnesses are now missing or dead, and they all have one thing in common – their version of events contradicts the official narrative.
Are they being silenced to stop the truth coming out?
Kymberley Suchomel, one of the key witnesses to the devastating Las Vegas shooting attack which left fifty-eight people dead and more than five hundred wounded, has been found dead in her home at the age of 28. The cause of her death has yet to be confirmed.https://archive.fo/HighT
Kymberley Suchomel was one of the lucky attendees at the Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas who managed to escape the hail of bullets without being injured. Shortly after fleeing the scene with friends, she made a statement to mainstream media claiming that there were “multiple gunmen” firing weapons into the crowd and that she was chased by one such man.
When she was questioned on the veracity of her story, given the official story that there was only one gunman, she said that she was more than “100% sure” that she was right.
Kymberley gave a very detailed account of what she had seen in the days following the horrific event in which she questioned the official narrative being pushed relentlessly by the mainstream media, despite the fact it doesn’t make any sense.
Writing on Facebook, Kymberley said that she had been watching the news with her family constantly since she had arrived home. She said the official narrative contained blatant lies, and expressed frustration that mainstream media was silencing the voices of survivors.
In a disturbing turn of events, it has emerged that Kymberley is not the only key witness to have died since the Las Vegas shooting.
1) John Beilman, the whistleblower who warned about a flase flag in Vegas three weeks prior to the shooting, who's home was later raided by FBI agents following the discovery of using the same CIA communications devices which the shooter Stephen Paddock also used. John alledgly "killed both himself and his disabled daughter." The FBI claims John put a shotgun to the back of his head and blew his brains out.https://archive.fo/rAJDO
2) Chad Nishimura, a Mandalay Bay valet who parked Paddock’s car when he arrived at the hotel, has also disappeared without trace after giving a statement to a Hawaiian mainstream news network, KITV4, about his brush with the killer. Nishimura directly contradicted the official narrative by claiming that Paddock arrived at the hotel with “not many bags” – certainly nowhere near enough to hold the amount of weapons and ammunition that was found in Paddock’s hotel suite.https://archive.fo/gRcFC#selection-1381.0-1378.1
3) It has also been revealed that “hero” security guard Jesus Campos has also gone missing. Fifteen minutes before his scheduled appearance on Fox News – his first media interview since the shooting – Campos supposedly ran away, and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.https://archive.fo/gRcFC

IF America Had A Decent Unbias Justice System Hillary Clinton Would Now Be Facing Decades In Prison
A top US attorney says that Hillary Clinton is facing at least 13 different criminal charges for her involvement in the Uranium One scandal that could see her sent to prison for “decades.”
Asked by Fox News host Sean Hannity how many crimes Hillary could be charged with, Attorney Gregg Jarrett responded, “13 potential crimes committed by Hillary Clinton, she’d be charged for six anti-corruption – they were all felonies.”
Infowars.com reports: “She could also be charged with racketeering for using her charity as a criminal enterprise and then you’ve got all of the email crimes – two of them under the espionage act and two additional.”
Jarrett also said Clinton could be facing prison for her involvement in colluding with Russia to pay for the infamous ‘peegate’ dossier on Trump.
“You can’t pay a foreign national relative to a political campaign and it appears she also – and the DNC – hid it – in their disclosure reports, which could also be criminally charged,” said the Attorney.
Questions surrounding Hillary’s culpability for both the Uranium One scandal and the peegate dossier are mounting, despite the media’s best efforts to bury both issues.
A Federal Elections Committee complaint asserts that the Clinton campaign violated campaign finance law when it hid payments to opposition research firm Fusion GPS to investigate ties between Trump and Russia.
The Department of Justice has also cleared an FBI informant to testify on the Uranium One bribery scandal, which was given the green light by both Hillary Clinton and Robert Mueller’s FBI.
Meanwhile, Hillary’s former campaign spokesman Brian Fallon admittedduring an appearance on CNN that Hillary “may have known” about the dossier that was intended to smear Trump.https://archive.fo/CSrgwhttp://yournewswire.com/hillary-clinton-13-charges-prison/

Twitter Confesses to Deliberate Censorship Of Conservative Tweets, They Bury Their Political Opponents
ALTERNATIVE SOCIAL PLATFORMS: >>2370
Twitter “hid” nearly 50 percent of tweets bearing the hashtag #DNCLeak along with a quarter of those with #PodestaEmails during the last two months of the 2016 presidential campaign, according to new testimony from Twitter’s general counsel.
On Oct. 31, the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism heard testimony from Twitter general counsel Sean Edgett in its investigation of possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Edgett said that Twitter systems concealed substantial numbers of tweets relating to hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee as well as from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, despite the fact that it knew that only a tiny percentage of these could have even “potential links to Russia.”
“We found that slightly under 4% of Tweets containing #PodestaEmails came from accounts with potential links to Russia,” Edgett said in his written testimony, whereas of tweets bearing the #DNCLeak, “roughly 2% were from potentially Russian-linked accounts,” he said.
Despite the low correlation between those hashtags and possible Russian involvement, Twitter hid 48 percent of tweets with the #DNCLeak hashtag and 25 percent of tweets with #PodestaEmails, Edgett said.
In his testimony, Edgett made no mention of another important hashtag, namely the plural “#DNCLeaks.”
As Breitbart News reported in the summer of 2016, users accused Twitter of censoring WikiLeaks’ DNC email release by swapping the trending #DNCLeaks hashtag with the far less popular singular #DNCLeak.
#DNCLeaks was one of the top trending topics on Twitter on July 22 with over 250,000 tweets reportedly made under the hashtag after the WikiLeaks release of more than 19,000 leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee.
Later on in the day, however, the hashtag reportedly disappeared from the trending bar for some 20 minutes, before reappearing under the less popular hashtag “#DNCleak.”
“The change meant that those investigating the new trending hashtag would not see all of the other posts tagged under the previous version, effectively hiding over 250,000 tweets from the public,” the report noted.
None of this came up in Edgett’s testimony Tuesday, which adds further questions to the already egregious partisan censorship that Twitter seems guilty of.https://archive.fo/XUXoGhttp://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/02/twitter-confesses-to-burying-nearly-50-of-dncleak-tweets/

Broadcom Limited Inc. To Return Jobs Back To The United States
A $100 billion semiconductor company based in Singapore will legally relocate its home address to the United States, President Donald Trump announced Thursday.
Broadcom Limited, which manufactures communications chips around the world, said it would relocate its legal address to Delaware once shareholders approve the move, bringing $20 billion in annual revenue back to the U.S.
Broadcom's corporate headquarters will remain in San Jose, California.
The Oval Office announcement was tied to the release of congressional Republicans' tax reform proposal, which would drastically reduce corporate rates and makes it easier for companies to deduct foreign taxes. The company credits the GOP plan with making it easier to do business in the U.S.
"America is once again the best place to lead a business with a global footprint," Broadcom CEO Hock Tan said in a statement.
Broadcom's move to the U.S. will take place regardless of whether the Republican plan passes, the company said. The company's $5.5 billion acquisition of American networking company Brocade has been held up by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. The high-level government committee, familiarly known as CFIUS, investigates proposed acquisitions of U.S. companies by foreign buyers on national security and intellectual property grounds.https://archive.fo/gwZB7https://apnews.com/41606442bed74e6aa0491a500574a8c7

Fascist UK Police State Caught Installing Cameras In School Bathrooms
Pupils at a UK secondary school have been avoiding going to the toilet after their school installed CCTV cameras in the toilets.
School bosses at Summerhill School in Kingswinford argue that the cameras are to combat bullying and vandalism, but parents are furious calling the surveillance ‘creepy and intrusive’.
They also fear inappropriate images of their children could be recorded.
The installation has led to pupils to avoid using the facilities, lest they be recorded spending (at least) a penny. Meanwhile, livid parents have said they are “disgusted” at the surveillance, branding the scheme “wrong,” and wondering who has access to the recordings.
“Following some disappointing behaviour from our students, who were not maintaining our high standards of behaviour whilst in the toilet areas, we took the decision to extend the network of cameras to these areas,” wrote James Bowkett, head teacher at the school.
Pictures of the cameras were shared among the school’s wider community, outraging parents. “My son has come back and said he doesn’t want to go to the toilet. It’s shocking, may have problems going on in the toilets but they can’t do this surely”, one mum posted on Facebook.
“My daughter has now said she is ‘holding it’ and not going to the loo and she’s not the only one who has said this…I’m disgusted!” another parent wrote.
Another guardian told the Stourbridge News: “What’s stopping some dodgy person recording inappropriate images of our children!”https://archive.fo/yR2uthttp://yournewswire.com/parents-outraged-after-school-installs-cctv-cameras-in-toilets/

Talk About Rigging Elections? Donna Brazile Admits Clintons Hijacked DNC in 2015
Donna Brazile, who was appointed the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in 2016, revealed that Hillary Clinton’s team took control of the DNC well before winning the primary against her opponent, Bernie Sanders.
Brazile reveals in her upcoming book that under chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC agreed in 2015 to turn over party operations to the Clinton campaign in exchange for fundraising assistance to help get the party committee out of debt.https://archive.fo/ObOFhhttps://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/02/clinton-brazile-hacks-2016-215774
Brazile discovered the joint fundraising agreement between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund, and Hillary for America, which was signed in August 2015, just months after Clinton announced her run for president.
According to Brazile, Debbie Wasserman Schultz turned over control of the financing, strategy, and money to the Clinton campaign as well as hiring decisions.
“Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff,” Brazile wrote. “The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.”
Party resources are traditionally handed over to the winner of the party primaries once a nominee is officially selected, not a full year before she won the nomination.https://archive.fo/vUiI7http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/02/brazile-clinton-controlled-dnc-2015-winning-primary/

Deliberate Destabilization: Another Muslim 'Refugee' Kills Innocent Civilians In Terror Attack
Five Argentine nationals and a Belgian were among those killed when a man plowed into pedestrians and cyclists on a bike path in New York City, authorities said Tuesday.
CBS News identified the suspect as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, who once worked as an Uber driver. Police shot the suspect after he exited the vehicle and shouted "Allahu Akbar."
Germany's Foreign Ministry said early Wednesday that at least one German national was among the wounded.
Officials told CBS News that 10 patients were treated at New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, including two people who died. CBS News' Michelle Miller reported from Bellevue Hospital -- about three miles from the crime scene near the World Trade Center -- and said five patients were rushed to that hospital and two were taken immediately into surgery.https://archive.fo/MgYvb
The suspected New York City attacker, Sayfullo Saipov, was interviewed in 2015 by federal agents in the Department of Homeland Security Investigations Unit about possible ties to suspected terrorists, but the agents did not have enough evidence to open a case on him, laws enforcement officials tell ABC News.
Saipov's name and address was listed as a “point of contact” for two different men whose names were entered into the Counterterrorism and Criminal Exploitation Unit’s list after they came to the United States from “threat countries,” one federal official told ABC News.
One of the two men has vanished and is being actively sought by federal agents as a “suspected terrorist.”https://archive.fo/nnz2a

Leaked Documents Expose Coup Against The European Union And European Nations, All Funded By George Soros
Leaked documents listing hundreds of EU parliament members that the George Soros network considers “reliable allies” should raise alarm bells across Europe, says Hungary.
The list, which includes 226 MEPs including former President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz, seven vice-presidents, and a number of committee heads, coordinators, and quaestors, was circulated within the billionaire open borders campaigner’s Open Society Foundations group, and revealed by DCLeaks.https://legacy.gscdn.nl/archives/images/soroskooptbrussel.pdf
“If this report threatened only Hungary, it wouldn’t be a problem. The Hungarian government has grown accustomed to countering the groundless accusations and false information used by the proponents of this radical open society agenda. But this time it’s not just Hungary. It endangers the future of Europe as a whole,” warned Dr. Zoltán Kovács, Hungary’s secretary of state for Public Diplomacy.
The government spokesman questioned how Soros was able to meet with President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker with “no transparent agenda for their closed-door meeting”, and pointed out how EU proposals to redistribute quotas of migrants across the EU are eerily familiar to Soros’s own self-published plan for dealing with the crisis.
For the Hungarian government, claims about Soros’s influence on EU migration policy which once sounded “like a conspiracy theory” should be seen in a new light with the emergence of the Open Society documents, which “list key players in European institutions that can be counted on as trustworthy allies of the financial speculator’s goals”.
“[T]he musket is not only primed but loaded,” noted Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on October 27th, after the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) proposed changes to EU asylum rules which would make the migrant quota scheme a permanent feature of the bloc.
“In Europe in the future, a permanent and mandatory migrant relocation quota mechanism will be established, with no upper limit on numbers.”
“The fact that an American billionaire financier believes that the European Union should receive millions of immigrants from the Middle East and Northern Africa, provide each one with an annual 15,000 EUR in aid, and resettle these migrants in member-states where they do not wish to go and are not necessarily welcome, is outrageous,” declared Dr Kovács.https://archive.fo/nGTeWhttp://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/10/31/hungary-europe-soros-network-list-allies-eu-parliament/

North Korea Nuclear Base Collapses Killing At Least 200 Gooks
A TUNNEL at an underground North Korea nuclear site has collapsed with up to 200 people killed, according to reports.
The collapse happened at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the north-east of the country on October 10, according to Japan’s TV Asahi.
The disaster has prompted fears of a massive radioactive leak which could spark a Chernobyl- or Fukushima-style disaster.
A North Korean official said the collapse happened during the construction of an underground tunnel, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reports.
Some 100 people are said to have been trapped by the initial tunnel collapse, with a further 100 lost in a second collapse during a rescue operation, Asahi reported Tuesday.
Lee Eugene, a spokeswoman at South Korea's unification ministry, said: "We are aware of the report but do not know anything about it."
The accident is believed to have been caused by Kim Joing-un’s sixth nuclear test which weakened the mountain, according to the report.
It was reported earlier this year that the mountain under which the base is believed to be hidden was at risk of collapsing and leaking radiation into the region.
Experts said if the peak crumbles, clouds of radioactive dust and gas would blanket the region, the South China Morning Post reported.https://archive.fo/EUFM1https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4806082/north-korea-nuclear-base-collapses-killing-200-radioactive-leak-fears-latest-updates/

Trump’s Former Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort Arrested For Tax Evasion, Money Laundering
President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Manafort's longtime business associate Rick Gates will surrender today to federal authorities in Washington, D.C., according to sources with direct knowledge of the situation.
The indictment contains 12 counts including conspiracy against the U.S., conspiracy to launder money, serving as an unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agents Registration Act statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.https://archive.fo/GG9ML
The Justice Department has confirmed that Manafort was permitted to surrender himself to the custody of the FBI. Read the full indictment here.
Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates were asked to surrender in response to charges from Special Council Robert Mueller’s investigation into accusations that the campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The Wall Street Journal reports that some of the charges against Manafort include tax fraud. He is expected to plead not guilty to the charges that will be revealed after the indictment is unsealed on Monday.
Manafort resigned from Trump’s campaign in August 2016 after reports tied his lobbying firm to pro-Russian forces in Ukraine. He was replaced by Kellyanne Conway and Stephen K. Bannon.
Since leaving the campaign, Manafort has faced additional scrutiny regarding his lobbying work for foreign countries.https://archive.fo/L9EYo
It is very ironic how Robert Mueller is leading an investigation into "Russian collusion" when he himself invested in Hedge Funds linked to Russian firms like Gazprom.https://archive.fo/NI8Gx
Many officials - including the media - have pointed this conflict of interest out and have been calling for transparency: https://archive.fo/LB6hQ
It is also very ironic how Robert Mueller completely IGNORES Clinton's financial deals with Russia's Uranium One which has been documented numerous times over the last 2 years.
If Donald Trump were to ever do what the Clintons have done, he would now be behind bars for treason:https://archive.fo/5Zhrihttps://archive.fo/srbPE

Just Another Coincidence? After Recent US Military Intervention In Africa, Terrorism Is Increasing
IS AFRICA GOING TO TURN INTO ANOTHER SYRIA FIASCO?
This morning’s key headlines from GenerationalDynamics.com
Dozens killed in Mogadishu, Somalia, bombings, two weeks after hundreds killed.
Somalia attack comes as Niger ambush leads to review of US military aims in Africa.
At least 23 people were killed and dozens injured from a series of coordinated suicide bombings and gun battles on Saturday afternoon in Mogadishu, the capital city of Somalia.
The al-Qaeda linked Somalia terror group Al-Shabaab claimed credit for the terror attack. The first attack was a car bomb outside the Nasa Hablod hotel, usually frequented by Somalia politicians. A second car bombing in the same area targeted security forces and ambulances as they arrived at the hotel to respond to the first bombing. A third bombing occurred when an attacker detonated his explosive vest inside the hotel. The explosions were followed by heavy gunfire.
Since October 8, when I first reported the deaths of four US troops in Niger, this little-known event has become the subject of major political controversy.
The story that has emerged pretty much follows what was known at that time. A convoy of American soldiers was ambushed by a group of dozens of militants, believed to be linked to Islamic State in Greater Sahara (ISGS), a militant group that has sworn allegiance to the so-called Islamic State (IS or ISIS or ISIL or Daesh). There have been additional details coming out that indicate that the ambush was planned by local villagers, who tipped off the militants and then delayed the American convoy from leaving long enough for the militants to get into place for the ambush.
The first controversy that has arisen was a national and international scandal, as it was debated for in media around the world whether President Trump had or had not momentarily forgotten the name of one of the soldiers, surely a question of galaxial significance, and well worth five or six days of constant 24-hour media coverage.
And second, there was shock and surprise on the part of many people that there are some 800 American troops in Niger. South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham admitted that he had not known that, but said, “They were there to defend America. They were there to help allies. They were there to prevent another platform to attack America and our allies.” (Same propaganda always regurgitated by the neo-cons and libshits!)
There are actually some 6,000 American soldiers in missions in 53 African countries. These soldiers typically provide 'training and security assistance for local forces', including 'intelligence and reconnaissance' help.
From the point of view of Generational Dynamics, this effort in Africa is nothing more than a holding action. No one can possibly believe that we can defeat these militias in Africa, just as we have not been able to defeat the Taliban in Afghanistan, just as the French have not been able to defeat AQIM in Mali, just as UN peacekeepers have not been able to end the war in Central African Republic. The two recent bombings in Mogadishu, Somalia, shows how far off any such defeat would be. On the other hand war-mongers often claim a complete US withdrawal could be destabilizing to countries where US troops are providing support.https://archive.fo/whc1I

British Government To House Islamic Terrorists At Taxpayer Expense While They Murder and Terrorize People
While the average young person in Britain struggles to gain a foothold in the crowded housing market, returning ISIS fighters are set to be given free tax-payer funded homes as well as cars, counseling, and public sector jobs as they carry out terror attacks on British soil.
The top-secret new government strategy, codenamed Operation Constrain, will even allow terrorists to jump to the top of council house waiting lists, allowing them to choose the best available homes to live in rent free, elbowing aside families who have been waiting, in many cases, for years.
Official government documents seen by The Mail on Sunday reveal that up to 20,000 extremists previously investigated by British intelligence agencies will be targeted with what critics last night described as bribes [for deliberate destabilization].
The Daily Mail reports: the highly contentious nationwide programme is due to start next year, with police and cash-strapped councils hoping the Home Office will pay for it out of its £900 million 'counter-terrorism' budget.
Last night, terrorism expert Professor Anthony Glees, of Buckingham University, said: ‘You can’t bribe people not to be terrorists.’
And Tory MP Andrew Bridgen added: ‘This sounds like a reward for being on a list of potential terrorists. You can’t buy people’s loyalty to this country.’
The move comes amid growing concern at the huge number of radical Islamists living in Britain who the security services are unable to track effectively.http://yournewswire.com/isis-fighters-uk-luxury/https://web.archive.org/web/20171031030711/http://yournewswire.com/isis-fighters-uk-luxury/

In The Event Of A Coup, Deep State Traitors Ready UN Troops For War Against Disgruntled, Armed American Citizens
Treasonous US Govt Has Agreed For A UN Military Takeover In the Event of Civil Unrest on American Soil
ISIS, MS-13, Antifa, the conspiratorial wing of the CIA (the deep state), the cover up mechanisms of the FBI (deep state), the Clinton Foundation, the Paddock family, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, AG Jeff Sessions, VP Mike Pence, George Soros and his communist front groups (eg Moveon.org, BLM), CALEXIT (eg California Gov. Jerry Brown, various drug cartels, the Mexican Consulate, George Soros (2), Bank of China, the United Nations, La Raza, et al), former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, HSBC Bank, 80 Federal legislators who belong to Communist and Muslim Brotherhood front groups (eg. Franken, McCain, Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer, Waters, Warren, K. Harris, etc.), James Comey, Robert Mueller, the Chinese government, the Russian government, and individual nations (eg Norway) of the UN 'Peacekeeping' forces and many others are just one big happy family. And what are they happy about? They are active and dedicated participants in the plot to destroy the Constitutional Republic of the United States and replace it with a brutal totalitarian government complete with UN troops in our streets and FEMA re-education camps. By the way, what you have read in this paragraph is just the short list.The MSM Admits What the Independent Media Has Been Telling an Igrnorant America for Years
Before you marginalize this bold statement, you might actually want to consider some hard core, irrefutable evidence. Let’s start with the mainstream media and Fox News.
From Fox News: https://archive.fo/iU1D1
“UNITED NATIONS – The United States is announcing its support for a set of principles that give a green light for U.N. peacekeeping troops and police to use force to protect civilians in armed conflicts.
U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power told a high-level U.N. meeting Wednesday focusing on the responsibility to protect civilians that the United States was “proud” and “humbled” to join 28 other countries that have pledged to abide by the 18 pledges.
U.N. peacekeepers from these 29 countries are now required to act in cases where civilians are in danger.
“The Kigali Principles are designed to make sure that civilians are not abandoned by the international community again,” she said, recalling how U.N. peacekeepers left Rwanda before the 1994 genocide and Srebrenica before the 1995 massacre.”
I have become an expert at arguing with idiots. The UN is not coming to an unsuspecting America, they are already here. They are waiting for enough chaos to ensue to justifiy taking over the country. Undoubtedly, half-baked people are going to say “Fox did not say that UN troops are coming to America”. I don’t mean to confuse anyone on the left with the facts, but please try and answer this question: “When Antifa is successful in using its new-found allies from MS-13 and ISIS, as well as the aforementioned people and groups, to carry out unlimited Las Vegas style attacks, and worse, what is the UN going to do? By policy they are going to bring their 28 nation peace-keeping force to America. Oh wait, they are already here and I have been reporting on this for six years!!!
Please allow me to spell this out very clearly. The Deep State has succeeded in lining up unlimited funding and willing participants in bringing unholy hell to America. It has already started. Now, our government has sold us out and has agreed to let the blue helmets take over this country on a set of contrived consequences promulgated by the left.

Landmark Bipartisan Bill Would Prevent Warrantless Searches Of Americans’ Calls, Emails & Other Communications
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) co-sponsored landmark legislation introduced this week that would prevent warrantless searches of Americans’ calls, emails and other communications.
The Uniting and Strengthening America by Reforming and Improving the Government’s High-Tech Surveillance (USA RIGHTS) Act is also sponsored by Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Ted Poe (R-TX), Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), Justin Amash (R-MI), and Ted Lieu (D-CA).
Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which expires on December 31, 2017, allows the government to compel American companies to assist in the warrantless surveillance of foreigners. This results in the collection of an unknown number of Americans’ private calls, emails, and other communications.
End the back door searches: Under current law. the government can conduct unlimited, warrantless searches through the vast data collected under Section 702 for private communications to, from and about Americans. The bill requires a warrant for those searches.
End reverse targeting: With no limits to the warrantless backdoor searches of Americans or the amount of information on Americans that gets reported around the government, there are no checks in place to prevent “reverse targeting” of Americans communicating with foreign targets. The bill requires a warrant when a significant purpose of targeting foreigners is to collect the communications of Americans.
Codify the ban on “abouts” collection: The bill permanently bans the government from collecting communications that are not to or from a foreign target, but merely about a foreign target and can be entirely between Americans.
Prohibit the collection of domestic communications: Section 702 is intended to collect foreign communications. The bill clarifies that it should not authorize the collection of communications known to be entirely domestic.
Prevent the misuse of information on Americans: The bill prohibits the use of information on Americans collected under Section 702, except for foreign intelligence and crimes directly related to national security, such as terrorism and espionage.
Strengthen the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB): The bill strengthens the PCLOB’s oversight by authorizing it to review all foreign intelligence surveillance programs and not just those related to terrorism.
Strengthen FISA Court oversight. The bill strengthens the FISA court amici.
Strengthen external oversight: The bill establishes a basis for “standing,” allowing outside plaintiffs to challenge the constitutionality of this authority.
Improve transparency. The bill allows for release of key FISC opinions and data necessary for the public’s understanding of Section 702.
Establish a four-year sunset: The bill requires congressional reauthorization in 4 years.
“Our government has clearly violated the Fourth Amendment by collecting information on millions of Americans. Our country's war for independence was partially motivated by the King's abuse of general warrants… the equivalent of today's indiscriminate snooping on millions of Americans,” said Massie. “In order to issue warrants, our founders wisely required 'probable cause,' and 'particular descriptions of the persons and things to be seized' in the Fourth Amendment. Even today, those words leave no room for the well-intentioned but unhealthy domestic spying being practiced by our government.”
This legislation reforms a sweeping, secretive government spying program to protect the Constitutional rights of Americans, while giving intelligence agencies authority to target foreign terrorists, criminals and other overseas intelligence targets, according to Massie.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and a total of 11 senators introduced companion legislation in the U.S. Senate.https://web.archive.org/web/20171030163622/https://freedomoutpost.com/republicans-co-sponsor-landmark-bill-prevent-warrantless-searches-americans-calls-emails-communications/

Three More Las Vegas Survivors Who Questioned Official Narrative Murdered By Fascist Government
Dennis and Lorraine Carver have become the latest victims of the Las Vegas shooting conspiracy, after being engulfed by flames in their car just meters from their home in Las Vegas.
The couple were found by their daughter, 16-year-old Madison Carver, who told Las Vegas Review Journal that she heard an explosion outside her window. When she ran down the street and rounded the corner, she saw the family car engulfed in flames.
According to the Riverside County Fire Department, the vehicle crashed into a metal gate outside their community at 10:50 p.m. on the 20000 block of Avenida De Arboles.
It took firefighters nearly an hour to put out the fire, the Riverside County Fire Department said in an official statement.
⚠️ A Couple who survived the Route 91 Music Festival dies in Car Crash near their home….. https://t.co/DWGlsn5Uga
— Matt Couch 🔸 (@RealMattCouch) October 28, 2017
Dennis and Lorraine Carver are the latest in an increasing number of Las Vegas massacre survivors to die in suspicious circumstances or disappear in the weeks following the shooting. Disturbingly, the dead witnesses all have one thing in common – they all provided information that calls the official narrative into question, and they were all ignored by law enforcement and mainstream media.https://archive.fo/3rB4J
Yesterday we reported the death of Danny Contreras, another Las Vegas local who had been contradicting the official narrative that only one shooter fired on the Route 91 Harvest festival crowd. Mr. Contreras tweeted the day after the attacks saying he was “lucky to be alive” after he was “chased by two gunmen”.
Danny Contreras, an eyewitness Las Vegas shooting survivor who publicly claimed there were multiple shooters involved in the attack, has been found dead in an empty house in Las Vegas with multiple gunshot wounds.
His body was found in a vacant home in the northeastern valley after a neighbor heard a man groaning inside the building and called 911. Police say Contreras was dead when they arrived at the 5800 block of East Carey Avenue, near North Nellis Boulevard.
The woman who called emergency services to the scene says she didn’t hear any gunshots, but the coroner confirmed that Danny Contreras, 35, died of “multiple gunshot wounds” and ruled his death a homicide.
Directly contradicting the official narrative that only one shooter fired on the Route 91 Harvest festival crowd, Danny Contreras tweeted the day after the attacks saying he was “lucky to be alive” after he was “chased by two gunmen”.
Posting on Twitter, Danny Conteras stood in solidarity with many of the survivors and insisted that there were multiple gunmen involved in the attack. His tweet was retweeted hundreds of times.
“Feeling lcky to be alive. cant beleive i got out of concert alive! 2 men chasing me with guns. not evry 1 so lcky.”
In the face of all evidence, and countless survivor testimonies, mainstream media is perpetuating a major cover up by claiming there was only one shooter.https://archive.fo/Xrqg9

Thank You POTUS! Trump Shoots Down Plans for Tax Hike on Middle Class Retirement Savings
President Donald Trump tweeted his opposition Monday morning to changes to tax-deferred retirement accounts that were reportedly under consideration by House cuckservatives.
“There will be NO change to your 401(k),” Trump tweeted. “This has always been a great and popular middle class tax break that works, and it stays!”
House Republicans were considering a plan to slash the amount of income American workers can save in tax-deferred retirement accounts. Currently, workers can put up to $18,000 a year into 401(k) accounts without paying taxes on that money until they retire and withdraw money from their savings. Proposals under discussion on Capitol Hill would set the cap lower, perhaps as low as $2,400. The effect would be a huge tax hike on middle class workers.
The plan to lower the cap on 401(k)’s would not have had an effect on long-term government deficits. Instead, it would have raised tax revenue now but lowered it in the future, since the retirement savings would already have been taxed. But taxing the savings would have had an impact on household budgets and may have discouraged workers from saving, increasing their future dependence on government benefits.
The 401(k) tax deferral is very popular with middle class workers. It is also supported by the financial sector, which benefits when Americans buy mutual funds and securities with their retirement savings.
There had been rumors for several months that GOP lawmakers were plotting to raise taxes on retirement savings, although no formal proposal had emerged. Trump’s tweet appeared to indicate that the president had either not been briefed on such plans or had lately decided to oppose them.https://archive.fo/oobNGhttp://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/10/23/trump-shoots-tax-hike-retirement-savings/

In Defiance To Spain, Catalan Considers Blockchain-Backed e-Residency Program To Replace Central Banking
It's 9am in San Francisco (and 5pm in Barcelona), so it's time to panic-buy some crypto-currency...
Bitcoin just surged over $200, back over $6000.
For now the catalyst is unclear. However, amid increasing tensions folowing Spain's impositin of Article 155, as CryptoCoinsNews.com reports, Catalonia, which is fighting for independence from Spain, is considering an e-residency program similar to the one in Estonia. Catalonia is also considering adopting its own digital token or cryptocurrency.
The Government of Catalonia, the Generalitat de Catalunya, has sent representatives to Estonia to learn about the e-residency program, which offers a government-issued digital identity card that provides a way to operate a location-independent business online.
Dani Marco, the director of SmartCatalonia, an official Catalan agency, said the Estonians built a model of economic development from scratch. Marco appears to be heading Catalonia’s e-residency initiative.
Catalonia continues to move forward with plans to create an economy separate from Spain, according to El Pais, Spain’s leading newspaper. Estonia’s e-residency program serves as Catalonia’s model and could emulate an Estonian proposal to issue national blockchain based tokens.
El Pais reported that Catalonia is interested in Estonia’s e-residency program since the program has no borders. The e-residency program has attracted more than 20,000 entrepreneurs from 143 countries since 2014, including 336 from Spain.
El Pais further reported that Catalonia has the largest number of entrepreneurs and those working with virtual currencies in Spain.
Blockchain experts in Catalonia have sought help from Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s founder, according to El Pais. Vitalik advised the Catalonians to create an ICO to offer a currency that would work in tandem with the financing of a business project for the virtual residence program. The e-residency ecosystem could create an economic community independent of a central bank.
Estonia recently proposed “Estcoin,” a national cryptocurrency. If the country follows through on this plan, it would be the first national government to launch an ICO.
Kaspar Korjus, managing director for Estonia’s e-residency program, posted a Medium blog in August claiming Estonia could offer Estcoins to residents. The coins could be managed by the Republic of Estonia, but accessed by anyone through the e-residency program. The program would launch an ICO to offer the coins.
Korjus also said the ability to start a location independent company is the main factor driving the growth of the e-residency program.
As CoinTelegraph reports, while the Blockchain residency program would be the first of its kind in Europe, perhaps the bigger news is that an independent Catalan government would likely not have a central bank, choosing a national cryptocurrency instead.https://archive.fo/Vi1OIhttp://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-29/bitcoin-just-spiked-back-above-6000

JFK Files: Two Shooters, UK Tipoff, CIA Media Infiltration, LBJ & Jewish Mafia Fingered In Coup
While yesterday’s pre-planned release of JFK files was significantly neutered at the request of the CIA and FBI, enraging Lou Dobbs among others, the 2800+ files which were released have been poured over extensively, revealing evidence of a second shooter, a massive CIA infiltration of the MSM, a tipoff phone call received 25 minutes before the assassination, and Soviet intelligence indicating the assassination was a coup involving LBJ among other things.
Summary of findings so far:
Two shooters, one escaped: https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32144493.pdf
J. Edgar Hoover's comments suggest Oswald wasn't a shooter: https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32263509.pdf
The evening of the assassination, J. Edgar Hoover told Lyndon Johnson’s aide, Walter Jenkins, “The thing I am concerned about, and so is Mr. Katsenbach, is having something issued so we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin.”
Soviet belief in a well orchestrated coup: https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32204484.pdf
“According to our source, officials of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union believed there was some well-organized conspiracy on the part of the “ultraright” in the United States to effect a “coup.” They seemed convinced that the assassination was not the deed of one man, but that it arose out of a carefully planned campaign in which several people played a part.”
The KGB allegedly had evidence LBJ was behind the coup: https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32204484.pdf
According to a CIA source, “it was indicated that “now” the KGB was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy.
Jack Ruby claimed it was LBJ as well: https://hooktube.com/watch?v=Yv3o9vx3VNM
A UK Journalist was tipped off 25 minutes before the assassination.
A memo written to the director of the FBI from the deputy director of the CIA notes that a UK journalist employed by Cambridge News received an anonymous phone call 25 minutes before the JFK assassination telling him to call the US Embassy for “some big news.”https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32357111.pdf

Putin’s Revenge May See Petroyuan Replace Petrodollar (This Would Cripple US Economic Hegemony & Influence)
The key to the coming petro-yuan lies in Moscow. And, if the Chinese currency eventually succeeds in usurping the long-standing petrodollar, Washington will only have itself to blame.
News that China plans to launch a yuan-denominated oil futures contract by the end of this year has come as a surprise to many analysts. However, Russia experts aren’t startled in the slightest because this move has been coming since Moscow abandoned its quarter-century attempt to integrate with the West, following the 2014 Ukraine crisis. A catastrophe which the Kremlin blames on the United States and the European Union, as part of what it considers to be an attempt to reduce Russian influence in its "near abroad.”
Beijing’s scheme aims to shift trade in “black gold” from petrodollars to a proposed petro-yuan. Which benefits China by making its currency more attractive internationally and providing greater energy security. However, the biggest winners may well be in Moscow. Because any decline in the dollar’s status severely dilutes Washington’s ability to wage economic war against Russia, via sanctions.
As the world’s biggest petroleum producer, Russia is vital to Beijing’s project. And, in turn, as the planet’s largest crude importer and most sizable economy (measured by purchasing power parity), China is the only country with the heft to challenge American financial hegemony.
Of course, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping can’t achieve their aims alone. Because if the petro-yuan is to succeed, other leading oil-drilling nations, will need to come on board. And, while Iran, Indonesia, and Venezuela have indicated their interest in the project, the key is tempting the Arab states to trade in yuan. And this essentially means Saudi Arabian cooperation is the big prize.
Because, after all, the petrodollar was born in Jeddah in 1974, when the US Treasury Secretary William Simon convinced the Saudis that America was the safest place to park their oil revenue. And this cash flow has allowed the US to live beyond its means for decades.
However, in recent years, relations have become frayed, with Washington’s support for its fracking industry crushing petroleum prices and causing severe fiscal pain for the Saudis. Indeed, the primary reason for Riyadh’s developing detente with Russia has been a mutual desire to prevent a further slide in energy earnings. As a result, earlier this month, King Salman made a historic visit to Moscow, where the yuan plan was surely on the agenda.
Informed analysts insist the Saudis will have to come on board: “I believe that yuan pricing of oil is coming and as soon as the Saudis move to accept it — as the Chinese will compel them to do — then the rest of the oil market will move along with them," Carl Weinberg, chief economist and managing director at High-Frequency Economics, told CNBC.
If the Saudis don’t play ball, they risk losing further market share. Especially, after new gas and oil pipelines from Russia to China begin operation next year. And there’s also the prospect that Chinese investors could boycott the IPO of state behemoth Saudi Aramco next year.
Meanwhile, there are high expectations for the petro-yuan. Because anything that weakens the American ability to wage economic war, and destabilize the Eurasian space, is a major win for the Kremlin. Furthermore, Putin may also consider the end of dollar dominance to be an important part of his legacy as he prepares for a likely final term as Russian President.https://archive.fo/oIDflhttps://www.rt.com/op-edge/408006-china-oil-petro-yuan-russia/

The Absurdities Mount: Brainwashed Radical Leftists Claim Civilization Is Ebil Rayyyyycism, "Reason Not Neutral"
A number of readers have turned out to be excellent research assistants. In response to my articles, “The American Left: RIP,” and the two follow-ups, “The Absurdities Mount” and “Goodbye Western Civilization,” readers have supplied the following.
A white male professor of philosophy has discovered that in order to have an academic career in these days he must find “white privilege” everywhere. Professor John Caputo, according to this report, https://downtrend.com/robertgehl/professor-calls-reason-itself-a-white-male-construct,
has found white male privilege in reason itself.
Reason, says Professor Caputo, “is a white male Euro-Christian construction.” Since reason is white, reason is not neutral. It implies that what is not white is not rational. “So white is philosophically relevant and needs to be philosophically critiqued.”
Professor Caputo ties into University of California professor Sara Giordano who defines science as a “colonial and racialized form of power” that “must be replaced with an anti-science, antiracist, feminist approach to knowledge production.” https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10021
I can’t say that this would be all bad. This way we wouldn’t have nuclear weapons and the frustrating digital age. But before I vote for it, I want to know what feminist science is. I have a disturbing feeling that it brings with it the genocide of the white heterosexual male. After all, if white heterosexual males are responsible for all the evil and ills of the world, how can we tolerate their existence?
The University of Oregon’s Jewish president was prevented by students from giving an university address this month about free speech. Free speech, declared the student protesters, perpetuates “fascism and white supremacy.”
Journalists seem to agree with the Oregon students. The European Federation of Journalists is leading a “Media against Hate” campaign against hate speech and stereotyping of illegal immigrants. https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11214/europe-journalists-free-speech
In other words, any European who protests his/her country being overrun by foreign invaders must be shut up. The scenario in The Camp of the Saints is now happening before our eyes.
A British university has blocked a professor’s study of those who regret their transgender operation because it is politically incorrect and could damage the university’s reputation. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4916026/University-bars-non-PC-study-transgender-operations.html
The study, the university said, would be “transphobic.”
Police in England looking for the suspects who in a fist fight between feminist and transgender activists beat up a 60 year old woman refuse to assign a gender to the suspects for which they are searching, as it would be politically incorrect. “We have to be very careful,” said the Scotland Yard spokesman. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5019051/Police-appeal-transgender-activists-beat-feminist.html
White males have no political correctness protection. The University of Cambridge can freely advertise university appointments and specify “females only” need apply. http://www.newn.cam.ac.uk/research/research-fellowships/
Can you imagine a university appointment advertisement that says it is for males only?

Google Silent on Lawsuit Over Youtube Censoring Conservatives
What's driving the tech giant's silence on a claim of violating the First Amendment?
Google has nothing to say yet about a lawsuit filed earlier this week that claims YouTube is violating the First Amendment by censoring conservative viewpoints.
The lawsuit comes from Prager University, run by radio talk show host Dennis Prager. According to the plaintiff, many of its "educational" videos have been put into "restricted mode." Prager suspects there is no reasonable basis for this other than viewpoint bias. The complaint filed in California federal court includes charts of restricted videos compared to unrestricted videos on "similar topics." For example, Prager's video titled, "Are 1 in 5 women in college raped?" is on lockdown while a Real Time with Bill Maher video about The Hunting Ground, an interview with Joe Biden on how to end the campus rape crisis, and Lady Gaga singing about rape all can be seen by YouTube users.
We asked Google about the lawsuit. A spokesperson responded, "No comment on this. We'll let you know if this changes."
We try not to read too much into silence. Especially from a defendant who has just been sued. After all, litigation is tricky and everyone deserves time to investigate and muster a response. Still, a no-comment days after the lawsuit was filed and got press from a company as big and sophisticated as Google in the face of the allegation that the tech giant is discriminating against a good chunk of the country is at least somewhat worth exploring.
Google could have easily have said, "We're not censoring conservatives."
And if Google wished to be more circumspect, it could have offered the cursory response employed by many defendants: "We believe this action is meritless."
Google did neither.https://archive.fo/bREQX

Deliberate Destabilization: Mass Migration Turns Another German Neighbourhood into No-Go Zone
A new report claims that migrant youth gangs in the Ebertplatz area of Cologne are becoming increasingly violent, leading some to describe the area as turning into a no-go zone.
Authorities in the Eberplatz area say that in recent months young migrants from the Middle East and Africa have turned the place into a no-go zone once the sun goes down. Over just the past nine months, police have been involved in around 3,000 incidents in the area ranging from simple stop and search to the murder of a 22-year-old African migrant last Saturday evening, Die Welt reports.
Police arrested three men in connection with the murder saying they were all part of the local drug scene. Police officials in Germany have previously warned that in some areas of the country asylum seekers and illegal migrants have begun to take over the lucrative drug trade, often using violence to achieve their goals.
German Police: Asylum Seekers Are Taking over Illegal Drug Trade https://t.co/2DzBSloj3B
— Breitbart London (@BreitbartLondon) June 26, 2017
One of the reasons the area has become so popular for drug dealing is its design allows criminals to come and go through passageways and tunnels and avoid authorities.
“The square is designed at such angles that even on the ground police can not overlook the entire area. This means that drug trafficking and acts of violence are not detected and prevented in a timely manner,” police said.
While police are called into the area on a daily basis and have carried out over 3,000 separate actions in the area, only 19 suspects have been arrested and prosecuted for crimes.
The scenes are similar to reports in Paris where migrants in certain neighbourhoods harass women on the street and refuse to let them into cafes.https://archive.fo/Vp09Chttp://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/10/25/migrants-turn-another-area-german-city-no-go-zone/

JFK Files: British Intelligence Warned About Assassination 25 Minutes Early
The British press and intelligence services were warned about the assassination of John F. Kennedy 25 minutes before the president was shot, according to a memo released to the public on Thursday that raises suspicions the JFK assassination was a plot involving multiple conspirators and international intelligence agencies.
In news reminiscent of the advance warning the British press had about World Trade Center Building 7’s collapse, it appears that a suspected Soviet spy from Grimsby, U.K. tipped off the British press that JFK would be assassinated 25 minutes before the ‘shot heard round the world’ in 1963.
The extraordinary call to the Cambridge News, home of the British intelligence community at the time, on the day JFK was shot, was revealed in a memo made public in a release of files ordered by Donald Trump about the assassination of former president John F. Kennedy.
The memo states that a senior reporter told MI5 he was contacted at 6.05pm UK time – 25 minutes before JFK was shot in Dallas, Texas – and the voice said ‘call the American Embassy in London for some big news’ before they ‘hung up’.
Daily Mail reports: Experts on the assassination said Albert Osborne, a suspected Soviet agent and Baptist preacher from Grimsby, was on a bus with Lee Harvey Oswald from Texas to Mexico City in the weeks before JFK was shot dead in Dallas.
Osborne was said to have been in Lincolnshire with his sister when JFK died and researcher Dick Russell said in his book The Man Who Knew Too Much that the Cambridge News call was made ‘a short distance from Grimsby’.
British and American spies gave the tip extra credibility because the reporter was ‘loyal’ – a hint he may have been an existing informant – and MI5 had said that they had a ‘strangely coincidental’ call when the Profumo affair rocked Britain months earlier.

JFK Files: CIA Plotted To Kill Castro, Stage Bombings In Miami
The CIA mulled mafia hits on Cuban President Fidel Castro. Someone called the FBI threatening to kill Lee Harvey Oswald a day before Oswald’s murder. And the US examined sabotaging airplane parts heading to Cuba.
These assertions are some of many unearthed in newly revealed government documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Following a deadline 25 years in the making, the National Archives on Thursday evening released a horde of JFK files. President Donald Trump blocked the release of some documents at least temporarily, citing national security concerns, leaving researchers, conspiracy theorists and interested onlookers 52 previously unreleased full documents and thousands in part to sift through.
Here are some of the highlights from the trove so far:
Sabotaging plane parts
A national security council document from 1962 — before Kennedy’s murder — referenced “Operation Mongoose,” a covert attempt to topple communism in Cuba.
In the minutes of a secret meeting on Operation Mongoose from September 14,1962, “General (Marshall) Carter said that the CIA would examine the possibilities of sabotaging airplane parts which are scheduled to be shipped from Canada to Cuba.”
CIA-mafia plot on Castro
A 1975 document from the Rockefeller Commission detailing the CIA’s role in foreign assassinations said plans to assassinate Castro were undertaken in the early days of the Kennedy administration.
The report said Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the President’s brother, told the FBI he learned the CIA hired an intermediary “to approach Sam Giancana with a proposition of paying $150,000 to hire some gunman to go into Cuba and kill Castro.”
The attorney general said that made it hard to prosecute Giancana, a Sicilian American mobster.
“Attorney General Kennedy stated that the CIA should never undertake the use of mafia people again without first checking with the Department of Justice because it would be difficult to prosecute such people in the future,” the report reads.
The report also said the CIA was later interested in using mobsters to deliver a poison pill to Castro in order to kill him.
During Operation Mongoose in 1960, the CIA also considered staging terror events in Miami and blaming it on pro-Castro Cubans.
“We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of a Cuban agent and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.”

Catalan Leader Finally Declares Independence After Referendum, Spanish Dictatorship Launches Coup Amid Unrest
A last-ditch attempt by Catalan regional premier Carles Puigdemont yesterday failed to halt Madrid's moves to invoke Article 155, dissolve Puigdemont's government and install an unelected, military-backed regime in Catalonia in the wake of the October 1 Catalan independence referendum.
As the Spanish Senate began its two-day debate on approval of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's proposed measures against Catalonia, it was announced yesterday morning that Puigdemont would call snap elections in Catalonia to forestall a Catalan declaration of independence. This followed a seven-hour meeting of Catalan officials, lawmakers and politicians the previous night held to formulate a common position on Article 155. Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) politicians had indicated that the calling of Catalan elections might lead them to drop their support for Article 155.
Leaving a Catalan government meeting yesterday, lawmaker Eduardo Reyes told the media that Puigdemont would call snap elections.
CATALAN'S leader has seemingly refused to concede as he called for calm in Spain as the country teeters on the brink of its worst political crisis in four decades.
As the Spanish dictatorship held its first meeting to discuss their coup imposing direct rule over Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont promised to continue to build a "free country", and called for "democratic opposition" to Madrid.
Puigdemont said the activation of article 155 of the Spanish Constitution was illegitimate and called on Catalans to show "patience, perseverance" and faith in the future, and urged "democratic opposition" against Spanish government orders to sack his administration and dismiss the regional parliament.
As The Spain Report notes, he announced he Catalans must "continue defending" their new republic "with a sense of civic responsibility," adding "our will is to continue working to guarantee our democratic mandate".
The use of Article 155 to suspend home rule in Catalonia was a "premeditated attack on the majority will of Catalans" and "contrary" to democracy.
The Spanish Senate formally voted 214-47 on Friday to authorize the implementation of Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, suspending parliamentary rule in Catalonia. It handed Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy full powers to suspend the Catalan regional government, proceed with punitive measures outlined in Rajoy’s October 21 speech, and impose an unelected Catalan government answerable only to Madrid.
As Article 155 was being debated in the Senate, where Rajoy’s right-wing Popular Party (PP) has an absolute majority, the Catalan parliament anticipated the outcome of the debate and voted to declare independence. Thousands of protesters surrounded Catalan government buildings in Barcelona Friday night amid calls to defend the newly-declared republic.

Orban Launches Intelligence Probe Into George Soros' Terror Networks
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is doing his best to save the Great Sovereign Nation of Hungary once again.
As Orban’s ruling party gears up for parliamentary elections in April - where it is the most likely to win largely thanks to its refusal to accept deliberate destabilization devised by the Communist European Commission - the Prime Minister, hero, has instructed his intelligence services to map what he described as the networks run by the billionaire financier’s empire targeting his country and citizens.
The Associated Press added that the investigation will also focus on alleged Hungarian members of the network.
Intelligence agencies will help evaluate what Orban sees as efforts by Soros to get Hungary punished by EU institutions pursuing a “mixed-population” continent, Orban said in an interview with Kossuth Radio on Friday.

Obama Threatened To Jail FBI Whistleblower For Exposing Uranium One Bribery
An FBI whistleblower who threatened to expose the Uranium One bribery scandal involving the Clinton Foundation was threatened by Obama with jail if he dared go public.
According to the FBI informant’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing, her client was told that his liberty would be forsaken by the Obama administration if he didn’t drop a lawsuit against the government.
Thegatewaypundit.com reports: The FBI informant was threatened and intimidated by Loretta Lynch’s goons during the 2016 presidential election.
As previously reported, Sara Carter of Circa News spoke to the FBI informant’s lawyer Victoria Toensing.
According to Circa News, the FBI informant wanted to testify to Congress about pertinent information that the Russian’s were attempting to gain access to former President Bill Clinton and his wife, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to influence the Obama administration’s decision on the purchase of Uranium One, Toensing said.
Toensing said her client “is not only afraid of the Russian people, but he is afraid of the US government because of the threats the Obama administration made against him.”
Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller reported:
Victoria Toensing, the lawyer for the informant, told The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese that Obama Justice Department lawyers told her client that “his reputation and liberty [was] in jeopardy” if he did not drop a lawsuit against the government.
[…]“The Russians have threatened him, and up until just last night the U.S. government has threatened him,” Toensing told Coglianese during an interview on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall.”
“He was told that if he didn’t dismiss the case his reputation and liberty were in jeopardy.”
The DOJ lifted the informant’s gag order Wednesday evening which means he will be able to testify to Congress.
It seems like Loretta Lynch was busy during the 2016 presidential election making sure all of the skeletons stayed in the closet so her Queen Hillary would win the presidential election.
Loretta Lynch also forced James Comey to call Hillary Clinton’s FBI investigation a “matter” rather than a criminal investigation.
The only people obstructing justice were Obama, Hillary, Lynch and the rest of the Deep State Dems.
Hopefully this FBI informant has the best security money can buy. God bless him.https://archive.fo/RVn9khttp://yournewswire.com/fbi-obama-jail-uranium-one/

Trump-Russia Collusion Conspiracy Backfires: Clinton's Documented Ties To Russia Are Being Exposed And Investigated
Lefty cheers for Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in US politics may soon fade now that he’s reportedly looking into a top Democratic lobbyist.
NBC reports that Tony Podesta (the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta) and his firm are the subjects of a criminal investigation by the special prosecutor.
And this comes amid new reports that the FBI gathered evidence for two years as Russian agents — including a major sleeper cell — worked to gain access to then-Secretary of State Clinton, husband Bill and members of their inner circle.
All of which underscores that, yes, Russia has long been trying to worm its way into US politics. But that effort went far, far beyond any schemes to help elect Donald Trump president.
The Podesta probe concerns suggestions he failed to fully disclose spending (a felony) while lobbying for a pro-Russian Ukrainian group.
The firm updated its foreign agent registration forms only after news reports disclosed Podesta’s payments from the European Center for a Modern Ukraine.
Meanwhile, The Hill is reporting new details of a years-long FBI investigation that tracked Moscow’s covert influence-buying activities — including planting a spy posing as an accountant in the offices of a top Clinton donor.
Team Hillary has long denied that she was a target of the spy ring, but an FBI source told The Hill: “There is not one shred of doubt from the evidence that we had that the Russians had set their sights on Clinton’s inner circle.”
All this, of course, follows reports the Obama administration knew Russia was engaged in a campaign of bribery and extortion — yet allowed a deal to go through giving Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium.https://archive.fo/srbPEhttps://nypost.com/2017/10/23/now-democrats-have-a-russia-problem/

Neo-con Cuckservatives Like John McCain Join Democrats In Attempt To Censor Online Political Content
Conservative media titan Matt Drudge took to Twitter Monday to shred Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) over his decision to side with Dems on regulating political ads on websites, including The Drudge Report and Facebook.
“McCain ran 100s of campaign ads promising to repeal Obamacare. He defrauded voters,” Drudge tweeted.
“Now he supports ‘Honest Ads Act.'”
Drudge included a link to a story by the Washington Examiner detailing how McCain is joining the Democrats’ ranks by siding with them on regulating political online advertisements.
McCain ran 100s of campaign ads promising to repeal Obamacare. He defrauded voters. Now he supports ‘Honest Ads Act’https://t.co/YwVJ2QHsU9
— MATT DRUDGE (@DRUDGE) October 23, 2017
“The ‘Honest Ads Act,’ co-sponsored by Democrats Virginia Sen. Mark Warner and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, would put new legal requirements and punishments on websites with 50 million unique monthly readers that take a tiny $500 or more in political ads from one advertiser,” states the article.
These new legal requirements will force large websites like Google and Drudge to keep a ‘public repository’ of paid political ads on their websites in 'an effort to prevent state actors like Russia from influencing U.S. elections'.
The conservative nonprofit Center For Competitive Politics weighed in on the bill, saying it “imposes more broad burdens on Americans’ speech rights rather than targeting foreign interests interfering with our elections.”
The bill "will certainly hit Americans who want to exercise their First Amendment rights.” https://t.co/eG2IqdRzpg
— CCP (@campaignfreedom) October 20, 2017
Democrats have been trying to regulate the conservative aggregator for years, this time accusing Drudge of being a “peddler” for Russian propaganda.
Last summer, the FEC tried to find ways to regulate Drudge and Infowars with no success.
“Commissioner Weintraub appears to be laying the groundwork to subpoena people at Breitbart, Drudge, and Infowars – maybe even Matt Drudge and Alex Jones themselves,” a law expert had said.
“It’s pretty easy to see how this quickly becomes an inquisition into conservative media outlets.”https://archive.fo/1Gfyahttps://www.infowars.com/drudge-rips-mccain-for-siding-with-dems-on-regulating-ads/
