Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has blasted the U.S. Deep State for being in bed with Israel, and has called on all ties with the terrorist state to be severed.
In an interview published Friday, Sanders said the United States should “play a much more evenhanded role” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and should cut all military funding to Israel due to their illegal occupation of the West Bank.
Haaretz.com reports: Sanders made the comments during an interview on foreign policy to the left-wing website The Intercept. Commenting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Sanders said that “the United States is complicit” in Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, but immediately added that “it’s not to say that Israel is the only party at fault.”
In the past, Sanders has publicly called to end Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories. More recently, however, the independent Vermont senator has spoken out against boycotts of Israel and signed a letter, endorsed by the entire Senate, denouncing the United Nations for its bias against the Jewish state.
In the interview, Sanders said that “in terms of Israeli-Palestinian relations, the United States has got to play a much more evenhanded role. Clearly that is not the case right now.”
When asked if he would “ever consider” a reduction of military aid to Israel, Sanders said “the answer is yes,” and provided the following explanation:
“U.S. funding plays a very important role, and I would love to see people in the Middle East sit down with the United States government and figure out how U.S. aid can bring people together, not just result in an arms war in that area. I think there is extraordinary potential for the United States to help the Palestinian people rebuild Gaza and other areas. At the same time, demand that Israel, in their own interests in a way, work with other countries on environmental issues. So the answer is yes.”
Sanders also expressed strong criticism of U.S. foreign policy toward Saudi Arabia.
>>1864 This is one thing I actually can agree with Bernie Sanders on. As far as all his other pro-socialist rhetoric no way, but I do agree Israel has wayyyy too much influence on US foreign policy and it needs to be nipped in the bud. Also he is right about Saudi Arabia, they are helping aid ISIS, they are one of the most brutal Islamic regimes out there.
>>1867 To "drain the swamp" as Trump puts it, he'd have to prevent people with dual-citizenship from working within the US govt and ban ALL foreigners from lobbying practices, which just so happens to be mostly Jewish people. This is the root of the saber-rattling neo-con influence well known to have hijacked the traditional republican party. These people are true fascists. Similar to how a bunch of communist scum hijacked the traditional democrat party. We now see two extremes and they covertly work and scheme behind closed doors together. (Tyrants come in all forms, but they have one thing in common: they hate freedom and hold contempt for sovereign populations).
>>1871 Related to pic, i doubt that would be a hard mission to blow up a market in Poland. It's just don't worth it in the world where the ex commie bloc that joined EU in 2004 can get much media coverage. Ukraine is still full of shit and still nobody cares. Of course low level criminals wouldn't visit Poland much, but why would they anyway?
>>1874 That picture clearly depicts what happens when governments let a bunch of unvetted Muslims flood into any nation. It turns into a disaster zone, later justifying the need for a militarized police state.
Funny how countries like Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, et al never seem to have this kind of problem. Maybe because they have secure borders and don't let illegal foreigners pour into the country!?
Little do they want you to know, this has been the so-called "democratic" plan all along: deliberate destabilization of all Western nations followed by a militarized police state and crackdown of all individual freedoms.
I like this editorial about how Amazon has destroyed the culture of Seatle. It's a good warning: large companies destroy the culture of interesting cities and make everything generic, corporate, and dull. I wouldn't want Google's HQ in my city either.
>>11165 One thing that frustrates me about the trump train is that in the beginning, when he first announced he was running, there was a small minority of people who actually supported him without being part of the massive deluge of users that came near and after the election. Whether or not I agreed with them, it was actually cool to see that minority argue their case against the rest of the board. Now ask anyone who supports trump, and you'll be wading through memery and retarded arguments for months before you get to one of those original supporters; those who were for trump not for his flamboyant personality or just to be against "the system"
>>11268 8 years before he was elected I met a Trump supporter who has read "The Art of the Deal" (ghost-written; not by Trump though that only came out recentlty) and the kid said in class he wished Trump would be elected as President to fix the country. The professor laughed heartily and said Trump has gone bankrupt and screwed investors leaving them with nothing 3 times. Said professor believed the value of a leader was soley in what he could bring to the shareholders (I believe the stake holders need to be considered too which makes me kind of socialist.)
I wish more people like my professor had spoken out against these people before the Trump hype train started, but I don't think they would have listened anyway. That student was kind of a dick too.
>>11259 You must be lucky then, many people do need phones (family, friends, work, emergency if need be, etc). Not that I'm saying we need them all the time but occasionally we do.
That's how I keep in touch, since I refuse to use personalized social media. And in that case, a simple "Jitterbug" or "burner" phone works well, and those are really cheap. No internet needed, no apps. Just a bare basic cell phone interface.
And if you don't use a phone, how do you communicate with people you know other than relying on social media? Is there some secret tech out there I don't know about? Ham radios perhaps?
>>11261 I use email. It's not secure, but it's the only way people can contact me right now, without talking personally.
I don't use social media too (unless you consider imageboards social media). And my point in doing so is not just the privacy issues, but also because they control you with reinforcement mechanisms to keep you hooked to receive their stimulus (attention in case of normal people and advertising in case of corporations).
I want to be out of this, so I don't participate. If people want to contact me, send me an email. If they think it's too complicated to use email or think that I'm not as special for them to waste time with me, them they are not trully friendz and don't deserve my attention. It's a good filter.
Don't you guys really understand that with dumb flip-phone you have absolutely no privacy when doing calls and texting with other people. You should treat cellular network as another way of connecting to the Internet without wires. Yes, all hot-spots are controlled by one entity and can triangulate you, it's bad. Yes, the firmware is proprietary. But you can utilize the possibilities and connect to SIP bridge through VPN. Your carrier knows where you are and that you are using a VPN. Fine, lot's of people are using VPNs today, especially corporate employees. You don't make calls, most people use message apps today it's fine too, nothing suspicious. Your SIP provider sees you connecting through VPN, nothing interesting here.
You still can communicate privately with other people on IRC, via mail and messaging apps, lot's of free software choices here, you can call others with SIP and not be fingerprinted/profiled by your carrier. When you don't want to be connected and therefore tracked, you turn off the modem and done.
>>11240 Jolla's os was based on gnu/linux too, but i won't call that a living thing. Sony tries to play with it, but i doubt they take it seriously, but who knows. It's community driven and there is no free development kit for the maintainers. Librem 5 should focus on os from the start and hoard oems to open the documentation for porting or they will fall shorter than canonical did. They can use plasma or unity too as a jump start.
Madonna released a live album last Friday. News to me. News to everyone, apparently.
The “Rebel Heart” Tour album sold just 3,848 CDs and downloads according to Buzz Angle and hitsdailydouble.com. It had no streaming that was reported.
Stranger, though, was that the album wasn’t released on Interscope, which put out the original “Rebel Heart” album. But maybe not so strange since “Rebel Heart” sold only 238,000 copies in the US. Madonna once sold millions of albums. (So did everyone.)
The live album was issued by Eagle Rock, a video company. Eagle Rock put it out as a standalone for audio. But they also sell a video package of CD/DVD/Blu-Ray that includes the live album.
Well, Madonna’s gone to Portugal so she doesn’t have to worry about all this. (Oh, good for her) And she has hundreds of millions of dollars. (Spoiled brat) So we won’t worry about her. (Ha!) But it’s a sign of the times, I guess. (Nobody likes you elitist snobs anymore, so guess again)
Wal-Mart Stores Inc said on Friday it was testing a service in the Silicon Valley to deliver groceries straight to customers’ refrigerators as it looks to gain an edge over Amazon.com.
The retailer said it is partnering with August Home, a provider of 'smart locks' and 'smart home' accessories, to test the service.
The delivery person would get access to the customer’s house using a pre-authorized passcode and would put away groceries. This of-course is the surveillance state on steroids.
Not only is this ridiculous, privacy-invasive and potentially dangerous, imagine if hackers could gain access into your home? Burglers would easily take advantage of such unsecure online networks.
This whole "smart" fad is nothing more than a ruse to keep people lazy and easily vulnerable - not only to spying, not only to burglary and theft - but to a police state as well which will most obviously use this as an advantage to control the population.
It is our duty as sovereign citizens to say "NO!" to all this "smart" technology.
2: Amazon & Walmart have more capitalist goals in mind for these infiltrations, which when asked by government, they will oblige: spy on your habits to auto-purchase for you good, and target-advertise with accuracy your "needs". South Korea extremely experiment on this, and France. People want this: they still own smartphones.
The largest urban centers throughout the country are where Democrats steal elections. They can’t do it by numbers of legal voters alone, though. No, they literally stuff the results with illegal votes time and time again.
Pennsylvania is a historic swing state that offers up 20 electoral votes in each presidential election. Democrat candidates had been winning it easily since Bill Clinton took it from George H.W. Bush in 1992.
Then came Donald Trump in 2016 and his shocking win in Pennsylvania – DESPITE the voter fraud machine the Democrats had long had in place.
To those who doubt that voter fraud, you’re not paying attention. It’s real as proven by the words of election officials themselves as detailed in this report:
Glitch let ineligible immigrants vote in Philly elections, officials say
These officials are finally admitting to such “glitches” because for the first time there are actually federal investigations into widespread voter fraud being initiated by the Trump administration.
Remember the contested vote count in Michigan when Democrats cried foul that Trump shocked the political class by winning that state over Hillary Clinton? A recount was initiated in the urban center of Detroit but then suddenly and seemingly inexplicably that count was halted – by Democrats. Why? Because it was exposing massive voter fraud.
Donald Trump not only defeated Hillary Clinton and the long-established Democrat voting fraud machine, he likely did so by millions more votes than were actually counted. The above headline out of Philadelphia is proof of that. It also goes a long way toward explaining why the Establishment despises Trump so much. By becoming POTUS Donald Trump defeated powers unaccustomed to losing.
They would see him punished for that – and all those who supported him.
This is why we need to get away from electronic voting machines and go back to paper and mechanical voting machines. I have no idea why in the fuck anyone thought electronic voting was ever a good idea in the first place.
Law enforcement use of one tracking tool, the cell-site simulator, to track a suspect's phone without a warrant violates the Constitution, the D.C. Court of Appeals said Thursday in a landmark ruling for privacy and Fourth Amendment rights as they pertain to policing tactics.
The ruling could have broad implications for law enforcement's use of cell-site simulators, which local police and federal agencies can use to mimic a cell phone tower to the phone connect to the device instead of its regular network.
In a decision that reversed the decision of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and overturned the conviction of a robbery and sexual assault suspect, the D.C. Court of Appeals determined the use of the cell-site simulator "to locate a person through his or her cellphone invades the person's actual, legitimate and reasonable expectation of privacy in his or her location information and is a search."
The Fourth Amendment guarantees, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington declined to comment on the ruling. The prosecutors could ask for a rehearing by the three judge panel or the entire appeals court, and if those are denied take the case to the Supreme Court, though Wessler noted that the high court might not be inclined to take a case where there is no dispute among the lower court rulings.
The Justice Department issued policy guidance to its agencies in 2015 that a search warrant must be obtained for all StingRay uses, and though that is not binding on state and local police, the Metropolitan Police Department has said it would abide by that rule. The ACLU has counted 72 cell-site simulators in use in 24 states and the District, but believes there could be many more. Both D.C. and Baltimore police had signed an agreement with the FBI not to disclose or discuss their StingRay device publicly, court records show, and an FBI agent sat with prosecutors during Jones’s trial to advise them on how to handle questions about the device.
>>1843 Maybe I'm uneducated or unreasonable, but what does VPN services and [the U.S.] legal framework vs. real activities have to do with the OP?
Mitigation by using VPNs or onion routing was[/never has been] a good teaching tool for commoners to practice networking, but when global actors are at live play, both protocols mean nothing to ECHELON; privacy extinct. Suggesting [re-]reading the ANT catalogue to refresh the memory of why those options are completely invalid for privacy is recommended.
>>1859 Wow, so they can decrypt communications of-the-fly now? It wouldn't surprise me really. Like someone I know used to say "don't do anything on the internets you don't want other people to see, because they'll find it!"
>>1866 Well I specifically said "it wouldn't surprise me." But I'm not tech savvy like most anons who lurk here so I really don't know all the details on what (((they))) can do. But I'm sure the police state have enough resources to find out pretty much anything they want to know about you or me and what we do online. All I was told is that using a private VPN helps "protect you" by giving you a proxy IP and encrypts the traffic. But when it comes to the NSA/CIA et al that probably doesn't make much of a difference.
>>1868 Watch the linked video if you can, notice the publish times. And remember, even against the law the people still in the federal government are still criminally acting. This law change still changes nothing. Nvm the fact hiring private investigator[s]/contractors [Hello Stratfor&Palantir] with taxpayers' money circumvents most of legality away.
If you aren't off-grid & self-reliant, may hell give you comfort.
Many members of the national media hate President Trump so much that they'll even defend North Korea if it keeps them consistent in their opposition to everything he does.
After Trump said at the United Nations General Assembly this week that the U.S. would crush the little Asian country should Kim Jong Un attack the U.S. or our allies, reporters and commentators reacted as if he had just threatened Switzerland on a whimsy.
Trump had simply said that the U.S. "has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," a relatively measured response to years of hostilities from Kim's regime.
"There were gasps in the hall: A forum for peace was used to threaten to annihilate a nation of 25 million people," New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote Thursday, surely still emotionally wrecked by the experience.
His colleague Gail Collins said the "big takeaway" of Trump's address to the U.N. was "that the president of the United States had threatened to destroy a country with 25 million people."
USA Today called Trump's remarks "unsettling."
It's as if up until Trump's presidency, Kim had been sending us love notes.
Jessica Schulberg, a reporter for the liberal Huffington Post, even suggested that Trump's comments justify North Korea's provocations. "Gee, Kim Jon-un is so irrational for wanting nuclear weapons," she said on Twitter.
Kim starves his own people and the media are siding with him over them and, more importantly, us.

Other from that, this version will also add a few features: File search on media management Maintenance images Ability to restart the unix socket from a GUI Subject editing Board locking Better global board moderation SSL can be made mandatory Mass bans directly from ips
The article points as Periform/Avast had no idea about this malware... I don't think so. I don't think it's impossivel that this is an malware sponsored by agencies, since CCleaner is used on so many normie computers today:
Avast's antivirus was already malware. It will miss your actual virus email attachments but identify anything downloaded from a domain registered less than three months ago as a virus. Avast's logic is that if a domain is newly registered, then it must be distributing viruses. Avast does serve as an example of something that harms because it's worse than useless though.

Avalon (2001). It's a very powerful movie. Like Matrix, it questions the perceived reality created by human mind. But, unlike Matrix, it does not creates this new "reality". The author let's you imagine what it would be to live in a world more real than that we live now.
I personally don't think that's the case, but it's a good movie.
Like other film such as Truman Show, Inception and Matrix, this one will give you a shift about the way you think.
>>11146 >the leaders should also have no right to privacy. >Bullshit. The point is not if the leaders of these corporations have privacy or not, the point is that everyone lost the privacy. >For me, this movie is a clear communist message.
The book ended with the main character too far gone in drinking the company kool-aid and she turned on the black guy, betrayed him, and supported censorship and ushering in a dystopia without resisting her leaders at the company. I see the film as a more morally grey ending. Her actions resulted in a kind of communist mob rule rather than a dictatorship, and after the film ends there's still a possibility people like her parents will rebel once they see the bullshit in the e-mails of her superiors. No such possibility exists in the book, because the monsters have already won.
>Having some transparency about security problems with software is great, but Adobe's Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) took that transparency a little too far today when a member of the team posted the PGP keys for PSIRT's e-mail account***both the public and the private keys.

Oh, hey, look the NSA doing it again. First Clipper chip, then IPsec, now the "Simon and Speck":

>>11271 He means the NIST standard suite, which is true. Regardless, gpg release already includes plenty other ciphers like curve25119, chacha, some quantum ones, etc.. Friend and I play w/Curve25119 right now 4fun
Anyway, I'll answer the question for you. No, although NSA Suite B cryptography is an NSA recommendation, the NSA did not have "a massive part" in developing the algorithms in it, as your fellow retard suggested re: RSA.
AES, for example, which is the recommended symmetric cipher in the suite, uses an algorithm called Rijndael, which was developed by two European cryptographers, Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen. Rijndael was submitted to the Advanced Encryption Standard contest (and won), which was sponsored by NIST, but it was not created by the NSA.

Fetal deaths rose and fertility rates dropped after Flint, Michigan switched to lead-poisoned water.
That is according to a new working paper by economists Daniel Grossman of West Virginia University and David Slusky of Kansas University.
The authors found that fetal deaths — pregnancies that lasted at least 20 weeks but did not result in a birth — increased by 58% and fertility rates fell by 12% in Flint after April 2014 compared to rates in other economically-similar Michigan cities that didn't switch their water sources.
They estimate 198 to 276 more children would have been born among babies conceived from November 2013 to March 2015 if Flint did not switch water sources.
"Failure to provide safe drinking water has large health implications," Grossman and Slusky wrote in the conclusion.
Comparing Flint to other economically similar cities in Michigan provided a "natural control group," they said. And since it wasn't known that the new water supply had higher lead content, they argue the decrease in the general fertility rate was more likely to be reflection of fetal deaths and miscarriages than a change in sexual behavior.
The authors also listed several limitations their study had. Since lead builds up in the body over time, their focus on neonatal health might underestimate lead's overall affects on human health and development. Further, other contaminants in the water could have also affected the results.
"Despite these limitations, the culling of births in Flint provides robust evidence of the effect of lead on the health of not just infants, but on the health of potential newborns in utero."
Russian President Vladimir Putin has named the date he plans to release proof that the US government engineered the recent spate of hurricanes that devastated large parts of the U.S.
Like a boxer confident in his own strength, Putin has been observing footage taken from the Russian Elektro-L No.1 weather satellite – and has been biding his time, waiting for the right moment to go public with his findings.
According to Kremlin insiders, this Christmas Putin will release the satellite footage that conclusively proves Hurricane Irma and Harvey, as well as other extreme weather observed around the United States recently, was engineered by people within the U.S. intelligence agencies.
“The destruction caused by those storms was orchestrated by the Deep State who, like on 9/11, wanted to inflict suffering and pain on the American people.”
The US government’s true nature will be exposed on the world’s staged, undermining the credibility of the nation.
Putin is the only world leader willing to take on the dark forces of the New World Order and attempt to defeat them.
Was HAARP Responsible For The Recent Hurricanes?
Putin’s claims that the hurricanes were man-made may sound far fetched, but geoengineering is a well established practise.
Former vice President of Pfizer, Dr. Peter Rost, has blown the whistle on the dangers of the Gardasil vaccine – and claims that Big Pharma aims to keep people unhealthy.
Below is a clip taken from the “One More Girl” documentary – a film featuring Dr. Rost in which he reveals how vaccines and Big Pharma drugs are designed to keep people in a state of dis-ease.
Healingoracle.ch reports: He is the author of “The Whistleblower, Confessions of a Healthcare Hitman.” Considering his work experience, it would be an understatement to say that he is an insider expert on big pharma marketing.
Below are a couple of quotes from both a former and a current editor-in-chief of the two largest, and what are considered to be the most credible, medical journals in the world. It’s only fitting to include them into the article as they are directly related to what Dr. Rost hints at in the video.
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” – Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world. (source)
>>1845 >and claims that Big Pharma aims to keep people unhealthy
Of-course Big Pharma wants people unhealthy. How would they make money if people were to take care of themselves, have a decent diet, exercise and stay healthy? They need people to be sick so they can provide convenient "cures" for them.
Dr. Ted Broer, who has a PhD in biochemistry and nutrition, has often talked about this issue in depth. Big Pharma rakes in billions a year off of cancer treatments alone... why in the world would Big Pharma want a cure for cancer!?
>>1846 Oh and I might add there really is a "cure" for cancer: proper diet, exercise and making sure you avoid unhealthy behavior. If everyone did this the cancer rates would plummet and Big Pharma would have executives jumping out of their office windows.
Fuck their vaccines, I won't take them. I'm off all the meds too and I feel great without them. Proper diet and getting enough sleep works wonders. Most medical conditions are caused by lack of exercise and really poor diet (which unfortunately most people eat fast food / junk food ie shit). Take care of your body it will take care of you. You are what you eat. All true.
President Trump threatens to “totally destroy North Korea.” Another hurricane lashes out. A second monster earthquake jolts Mexico. Terrorists strike in London. And that’s just this past week or so.
Yes, the world is clearly coming to an end. But is there anything you can do to prepare?
That is not a philosophical question, or a theological one. And if it is a question that seems to beg any explication, you may stop reading now.
But if you are among the swelling class of weekend paranoiacs of affluent means who are starting to mull fantasies of urban escape following the endless headlines about disasters, both natural and manufactured, you may be starting to see a different image in your mind when think “survivalist.” You may no longer see the wild-eyed cave dweller in camouflage fatigues, hoarding canned goods. You may even see one in the mirror.
In a world where the bombproof bunker has replaced the Tesla as the hot status symbol for young Silicon Valley plutocrats, everyone, it seems, is a “prepper,” even if the “prep” in question just means he is stashing a well-stocked “bug-out bag” alongside his Louis Vuitton luggage in a Range Rover pointed toward Litchfield County, Conn. Here is a checklist for the neo-survivalist preparing for the apocalypse.
In the event of apocalypse, bring condoms. This may sound like a slogan from a fraternity party T-shirt, but survivalists absolutely adore condoms. Featherweight, ultracompact and durable, condoms (nonlubricated, please) can be used as a makeshift canteen to store water, a fire starter or as elastic bands for an improvised slingshot to hunt small game, according to Creek Stewart, a survival instructor and television host.
When inflated, they can also be used as fishing bobbers or signaling devices for semaphore, according to SensiblePrepper. Oh, and they’re also great for the obvious use, too.
6. Armed to the Teeth
[The sheeple of New York city are restricted from buying firearms.]
Let's cut to the chase, alternatives: brass knuckles, nunchucks, ninja stars, switchblade knives, slingshots, mace, bare spray, tasers, mortars, bats, clubs, knives, hammers, hatchets, nail guns, etc.
And never allow fascists, communists or any other despot scum disarm you when SHTF. Fight to survive, simple as that.
Since the Sept. 11 attacks, many cubicle dwellers have been haunted by fears of being stuck in a skyscraper when disaster strikes. In fact, tragic images from the World Trade Center inspired a micro-industry of high-rise-escape options. There are now escape chutes (basically, giant collapsible fabric tubes for shinnying down) and small parachutes.
The SOS Parachute (about $2,400) is compact enough to store in a cubicle, opens in about two seconds and is designed to work for the 11th floor and higher. Granted, the parachute is exactly not 82nd Airborne-grade, and a 200-pound man might find the landing a little rough. “You may twist an ankle,” said Nicolas Havett, a company executive. But in a situation serious enough to warrant a parachute, that’s a deal that many would take.
9. Who Are You Calling “Rocket Man”?
They were a science-fiction fantasy in the Bond movie “Thunderball,” a space-age gag in “Gilligan’s Island.” But a half-century later, jet packs actually exist. A California company called JetPack Aviation unveiled a functioning turbojet version two years ago, capable of staying aloft for 10 minutes, traveling at speeds up to 100 miles per hour. Current models are available only to the military, but David Mayman, the company’s founder, said he plans to introduce a commercial version within 18 months.
Hard-core doomers need not drain their airplane-liquor-bottle stash to envision the potential: Imagine New York after, say, an electromagnetic pulse attack that wipes out the power grid (like the kind North Korea recently threatened). The bridges and streets resemble a scene from the old John Carpenter movie “Escape From New York,” but the privileged few can soar across the Hudson to safety (or at least New Jersey). “From the time you push the button, you could be in the air in less than 30 seconds,” Mr. Mayman said.
Sure, there is the cost — about $250,000, which the company is hoping to bring down “to the price of a luxury car.” For now, just think of it as the survivalists’ Maybach.
In the event of a breakdown of the food supply that leaves the shelves of Fairway bare and Le Coucou a ghost town on a Saturday night, you will still have to eat. Often.
That is why many survivalists are placing their hopes of sustenance in rabbit, a high-protein, low-fat meat that is also being embraced as “the new chicken” by sustainable food types including Michael Pollan. “Raising meat rabbits is one of the most space-efficient means of growing livestock for meat,” according to the site Survivalist 101.
By livestock standards, rabbits are relatively clean and quiet, too. They can survive on table-scrap vegetables or even grass, and as a bonus, yield valuable fur for improvised winter clothing. And boy do they breed. A doe can produce up to 50 kits a year, yielding 250 pounds of meat, according to researchers at the Penn State Extension.
12. Beyond Medieval Times
To master archery and broadsword combat; to learn to manufacture fabric, bread, ceramic cookware and wood furniture by hand; to perfect the preindustrial arts of iron craft and tanning: Yes, there are worse things to carry into a post-apocalyptic world than a membership card to the Society for Creative Anachronism.
In normal times, this international historical-re-enactment organization seems like little more than a harmless bunch of Renaissance Faire types playing dress up on weekends and celebrating the arts, skills and costumes of pre-17th-century Europe.
But should Armageddon arrive — say, in the form of a limited nuclear exchange, global pandemic or cyber mega-attack — these hobbies could mean your survival. In other words, chivalry may not be dead after all.
There is bugging out, and then there is really bugging out. In a scorched-earth scenario where even a jet pack is not enough to escape harm’s way, preppers with deep pockets and a taste for Arthur C. Clarke might consider the ultimate escape: launching their DNA into space.
Celestis, a company specializing in “memorial spaceflights” (sending cremated remains into space), recently introduced “genetic spaceflight.” For $12,500, for example, the cosmologically minded can send their DNA (a mouth swab or hair sample) into space on a “true mission of exploration,” aboard a spacecraft on a “permanent celestial journey well beyond the moon.”
Who knows — some ultra-intelligent alien being may discover it in the future, and use your genetic code to reanimate a race of humans on a distant planet. Let’s just hope those humans don’t choose to blow themselves up.
I'm glad prepping is going mainstream these days. It will help the local economy, it will also help individuals when a crisis occurs and it will overall make the nation more self-reliant and sustainable (tougher and ready when SHTF).
I got enough supplies to live two years in my own home without having to go to a store if need be. Plus all the DIY household fortification makes my house a hell of a lot tougher to break into without confrontation awaiting the intruder(s).
The catastrophic impacts of man-made climate change have been exaggerated, according to top global warming scientists who have admitted they produced biased studies based on junk science to please their government paymasters.
These studies were then used by mainstream media to control the narrative about global warming and convince the public that billions of dollars in extra tax revenues must be procured in order to stave off Armageddon.
A stunning new science paper authored by climate change alarmists and published in the science journal Nature Geoscience has just broken the back of the climate change hoax. The paper, authored by Myles R. Allen, Richard J. Millar and others, reveals that global warming climate models are flat wrong, having been deceptively biased toward “worst case” warming predictions that now turn out to be paranoid scare mongering.
The paper, entitled, “Emission budgets and pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5 °C,” concludes that the global warming long feared and hyped by everyone from Al Gore to CNN talking heads was based on faulty software models that don’t stand up to actual measured temperatures in the real world. In technical jargon, the paper explains, “We show that limiting cumulative post-2015 CO2 emissions to about 200 GtC would limit post-2015 warming to less than 0.6 °C in 66% of Earth system model members.”
In effect, the current global warming software models used by the IPCC and cited by the media wildly over-estimate the warming effects of CO2 emissions. How much do they over-estimate warming? By about 50%. Where the software models predicted a 1.3 C rise in average global temperatures, only a rise of about 0.9 C has actually been recorded (and many data points in that average have, of course, been fabricated by climate change scientists to push a political narrative). In other words, carbon dioxide emissions don’t produce the warming effects that have been blindly claimed by climate change alarmists.
You mean the fag that got autistic overhow water samples were collected despite being well within margin of error? The same megalomaniac faggot who said that "computer glitches" are responsible for reports after he was in charge? Mind you for the latter accusation he based it all on gossip. You're telling me I should trust his word?
How about instead of that I read the peer reviews and compare them to the procedures said reviews criticize? Or is that so hard you'd rather have bloggers and sensationalist yellow media do the thinking for you?
So hurricane data being fudged means all the other data is? Great logic buddy. Good grief man, do me a favor, don't just BLINDLY swallow ANY MEDIA's lies. Please stop.
>>1832 You're telling me I should trust scientists who faked data, got caught via Wikileaks ("climategate") - TWICE - confirming their data models were manipulated. Later after blowing off the issue, the same scientists who continued to fake data as whistleblowers come out, a Congressional investigation is launched, then another scientific study is published re-confirming rigged data - in which the same scientists had to admit "we were wrong" to the newspapers?
I should trust them? The same scientists that get huge paychecks from the government to come up with an excuse to push a Trillion dollar carbon TAX agenda? I think not buddy.
The emails which have been debunked several times already? The same emails that discuss why data needs to go through means, averages, and standard deviations? The same emails normalfaggots who don't know anything about math, data collecting, or science took at face value?

A Harvard University study has discovered that Apple deliberately slow down old iPhones weeks before a new iPhone is launched.
According to the study, Google searches for “iPhone slow” spiked multiple times just ahead of the release of a new model.
The study was performed by student Laura Trucco. The study also compared the results to “Samsung Galaxy slow,” and found that the same spike in searches did not occur before the release of a new Samsung phone.
This isn’t the first time the theory has been put forth. Surprisingly a New York Times writer suggested Apple might configure its new operating systems to only really work properly on new devices.
Writer Catherine Rampell said:
When major innovations remain out of reach, and degrading durability threatens to tick off loyal customers, companies like Apple can still take a cue from the fashion industry.
The public has to get wise to the way corporations generally operate. They hire efficiency experts and people who can maximize the profit made from any product they produce. Not every corporation is the same, but the inherent incentive must be understood, or people will continuously be played by the corporations.

In this video series, officials at Cornell, Syracuse, and Yale Universities destroy the U.S. Constitution by varying means: at Cornell it was a shredder, at Syracuse it was a pair of scissors, and at Yale it was ripped apart by bare hands, all to protect “triggered” students who might have their feelings hurt. In theses video, which followed a Vassar College official shredding a Constitution, a Project Veritas journalist goes to Cornell, Syracuse, and Yale Universities to see if Vassar and Oberlin were anomalies, or if they were representative of today’s higher education. Sadly, the latter proved true, as officials at all three schools were all too willing to destroy the constitution.
Following controversies at Yale, James O’Keefe and a Project Veritas journalist were detained by Yale police officers after attempting to question Yale University President and the Yale College Dean about the Yale official who was captured on hidden camera by Project Veritas ripping up a copy of the U.S. Constitution.
FIRST VIDEO: https://youtube.com/watch?v=3PZAzLTQlX8 [Embed]
In this video, a Project Veritas journalist goes to Vassar and Oberlin colleges to see just how extreme America’s colleges have become. Shockingly, she got commitments from leadership at each to shred the Constitution, and in the case of Vassar, Project Veritas’ undercover cameras actually captured the official shredding the U.S. Constitution.
SECOND VIDEO: https://youtube.com/watch?v=4THEcWCpEgQ [Embed]
In this video a Project Veritas journalist goes to Cornell, Syracuse, and Yale Universities to see if Vassar and Oberlin were anomalies, or if they were representative of today’s higher education. Jason Killheffer, Yale University’s Director, Academic Integrity Programs; Senior Deputy Title IX Coordinator was asked on hidden camera about banning the constitution. Ultimately, Mr. Killheffer decided it would be faster if he just ripped it up with his bare hands, which he did.
THIRD VIDEO: https://youtube.com/watch?v=K1pBCf5-8pw [Embed]
In this video, Project Veritas shows a divide in the Tar Heel state. While officials at Duke and UNC acted responsibly, officials at NC State seemingly agreed to ban the constitution in the entryway of one residence hall. North Carolina State University’s Assistant Equal Opportunity Officer Carley Wyche is captured on hidden camera responding to a request from a Project Veritas journalist to remove the Constitution from her dorm: “Especially it is you know, [the Constitution] being such a trigger for you and if there is not a reason for it to be there, that I do not see a reason why we could not.”
If I was younger I would never go to college today, what a fucking racket, what a cess pool of corruption and stupidity.
There should be a law in America requiring universities teach students about the US constitution and the importance of these basic rights. This country was founded on that doctrine, we would not have any freedom today without the constitution, everyone would have been enslaved by now without it. And knowing the mindset of these despot control freaks and their minions I do conclude that is exactly what they would like: total slavery to the State, subjugation by an elite. They might as well pledge allegiance to another country like North Korea or Venezuela: two other hellholes I'm sure 'progressives' would make excuses for.
Question for OP and readers: If going to colleges&universities has become a repugnant business dept game, how do we prepare our younger generations for employment,when most companies request at the least a bachelors degree?
>>1831 First off, that's NOT entirely true. There are jobs out there where a high school graduate can become employed. Disinformation (or perhaps propaganda) is only one current problem we have, another is the utter acceptance of such a policy.
Sure, you'll need certification or degrees to become a doctor or lawyer or become an engineer. But there are trucks that need to be driven. Construction that needs to be done. Plumbing pays well - you'd be surprised, my father was a plumber and we lived well in his nice middle class home. He also NEVER went to college bro! There are shelves that need to be loaded/unloaded, there are loading docks that need operators. There are butchers needed to sell meat.
>>1831 >>1833 Another thing that is propaganda is the deception that everyone who goes into huge student loan debts to get a degree end up having a good job and are able to pay it all back, no prob. For MOST folks it does not end up that way, and they suck it up and have to work a menial task job for a living which they could have had without going into huge student loan debt. Think about that.
President Trump is ready to shift rules to allow American gun makers more leeway in selling arms and ammunition to foreign buyers.
This would mean expanded markets for AR-15s and American made 5.56 and .223 ammunition.
According to Reuters, aides to President Trump are finalizing “a plan to shift oversight of international non-military firearms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department.” And the shift in rules governing sales to foreign buyers can be accomplished without Congressional approval.
Moving oversight from the State Dept. to Commerce places things in the hands of a department more interested in upping trade numbers than restricting firearm sales. This provides broadened opportunities for manufacturers like Bushmaster, Daniel Defense, Battle-Tested Equipment, Smith & Wesson (American Outdoor), Sturm, Ruger, and Co., and other American companies.
An administration official speaking on condition of anonymity said, “There will be more leeway to do arms sales. You could really turn the spigot on if you do it the right way.”
News of the administration’s shift in arms sale policy lifted Sturm Ruger and American Outdoor stock value upwards of 18 percent. The surge is because a shifting oversight of arms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department “could increase sales by 15-20 percent annually.”
Trump ran on a pro-Second Amendment platform, but progress on some of the most popular pro-gun legislation has been stifled by the establishment. For example, on September 8 Breitbart News reported that Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) said House Speaker Paul Ryan will not let Congress touch national reciprocity for concealed carry. As a result, the national reciprocity legislation – which was put forward on January 3, 2017 – is withering on the vine.
>>1830 Some of the best firearms are made inside the US. I'm sure there will be outside buyers - and if not, who cares? Gun manufactures already sell to Americans, that means millions of costumers right there.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr has delivered a bombshell report outlining how the CDC covered-up evidence showing a clear link between vaccines and autism.
In the report, Kennedy and his team found evidence of criminal activity by CDC consultant Poul Thorsen, who deliberately manipulated various CDC studies looking at mercury-based preservative thimerosal in the development of autism.
Healthimpactnews.com reports: The new evidence, recently uncovered by the World Mercury Project, shows that Thorsen and his collaborators did not obtain permission from an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to conduct their research, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2002 and Pediatrics in 2003.
In 2011, The Department of Justice indicted Thorsen on 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering for stealing over $1 million in CDC grant money earmarked for autism research. The product of Thorsen’s work for CDC was a series of fraud-tainted articles on Danish autism rates that, today, form the backbone of the popular orthodoxy that vaccines don’t cause autism.
In 2009, when CDC discovered that Thorsen never applied for the IRB approvals, staff did not report the errors or retract the studies. Rather, FOIA documents show that CDC supervisors ignored the missteps and covered up the illegal activity.
This misconduct undermines the legitimacy of these studies which were used to refute vaccine injury claims in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The studies were also used in the NVICP’s “Omnibus Proceeding” to dismiss 5000 petitions by families who claimed that their children had developed autism from vaccines. These claims, if settled in the claimants’ favor, would have resulted in payouts totaling an estimated $10 billion.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Chairman, stated, “World Mercury Project calls upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions to extradite Thorsen back to the U.S. to face prosecution. We also call upon Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Tom Price to retract the Thorsen-affiliated autism research papers that are the fruit of illegally conducted research.”
Autism should be the least of UScivs concerns regarding "vaccination". Many many times more likely getting people dead and permanently injured due to injections occur than acquiring "autism". How about sexual incompetence or inability to reproduce better instigators for the public to rebuke? No? Because that, and worse things are being actively invested to depopulate the planet. Imagine a nation of obedient serfs that accept anything and everything you command them for. The Brave New World Order!
>>1808 The problem is not with vaccines themselves, the problem is with the toxic adjuvants and preservatives put into modern vaccines, which include: sucrose, fructose, dextrose, potassium phosphate, FD&C Yellow #6, aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, lactose, aluminum potassium sulfate, peptone, bovine extract, formaldehyde, thimerosal, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, bovine extract), calf serum, aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxphosphate sulfate, and ethanol. Not to mention squalene as well, which is often used for industrial purposes.
>>1812 ... Did you misread me? I said
Injuries >> Deaths >> Brain Damage >> Active culture & infection
The comparison Sean Adl-Tabatabai & OP presents are minuscule when compared to sexual injuries/incompetence. Make a campaign about "Vaccines make you impotent for life!" and surely more people will care. They already don't care you have a higher chance to die than get autism.
On September 18, the US Senate voted to ban the use of products from the Moscow-based cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab by the federal government, citing national security risk. The vote was included as an amendment to an annual defense policy spending bill approved by the Senate on the same day. The measure pushed forward by New Hampshire Democrat Jeanne Shaheen has strong support in the House of Representatives, which also must vote on a defense spending bill. The legislation bars the use of Kaspersky Lab software in government civilian and military agencies.
On September 13, a binding directive issued by Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke, ordered federal agencies to remove Kaspersky Lab products from government computers over concerns the Russia-based cybersecurity software company might be vulnerable to Russian government influence. All federal departments and agencies were given 30 days to identify any Kaspersky products in use on their networks. The departments have another 60 days to begin removal of the software. The statement says, «The department is concerned about the ties between certain Kaspersky officials and Russian intelligence and other government agencies, and requirements under Russian law that allow Russian intelligence agencies to request or compel assistance from Kaspersky and to intercept communications transiting Russian networks». The Russian law does not mention American networks, nevertheless it is used as a pretext to explain the concern.
Similar bans against US government use of Kaspersky products have been suggested before. In 2015, Bloomberg News reported that the company has close ties to Russian spies.
It would make much more sense if the United States were to develop an anti-virus company of our own for national security reasons. Allowing ANY other country's anti-virus software to be installed on sensitive computer networks puts the US government at great risk for cyberespionage. This is only common sense.
All USG computers (especially military) should actually be encrypted along with the network traffic through a highly-trusted VPN which does not keep IP records or timestamps. This would help prevent hacking. Also, having (trusted and reputable) domestically made firewall software that blocks most ports and unwanted protocols is a good step too.
Never download anything onto a really sensitive system, in fact you should keep it 100% offline if it contains any classified material. If it's used for browsing online information / logging into other secret networks make sure you have Noscript installed, block all global scripts and scrub/re-write the whole whitelist to suit your routine needs. And add a browser agent spoofer to obfuscate your browser's metadata too. All these things help add to your security.
>>1796 As far as the military, they should be designing their own computers for maximum security: never trust shady companies (especially foreign companies). It would not only help provide our military with better security, it would also provide Americans with more jobs (manufacturing the chips and all).
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Sure, let's ban the company that discovered the Equation Group malware embedded in nearly every firmware that wikileaks disclosed was ECHELON and likeliest NSA. I'm sure a private Russian security firm wants to make more malware to exploit the world at large!
Wait, NSA has the ultimate firmware botnet capable of crippling the internet at large, and Snowden won't say shit?
>>1809 Yes it may seem ironic and a way it is. However factor in the fact that all wealthy governments conduct these same dragnet-style spying operations. As would the US government, so would the Russian government, so would the Chinese government, so would the British government, et al.
Corruption and the lust of power knows no bounds, it knows no limit, it spreads and infects on a global scale. Unless curbed and cracked down harshly, it becomes malignant and consumes every institution at every level... which is what has happened at this point.
Trust no one but your own survival instincts or be consumed.
>>1811 hate to brake to you, but I trust in math more. Kaspersky as a security firm has always been open about their product and their signatures. They hire many kinds of people form many backgrounds, which I implied with private company. What the Senate voted on was ignorance of technology.
Nevertheless, this isn't a loss: they can hire Norton & MCfee for their systems while we laugh.
>[...] it might have been the start of something more ambitious: a coordinated campaign to shut down use of cryptocurrency in the Middle Kingdom. >The full extent of the Chinese crackdown isn't clear yet, in part because key decisions have only been communicated privately to Chinese Bitcoin exchanges. >But a couple of Bitcoin exchanges have now announced that they are shutting down. >And leaked documents suggest that the rest will be required to do so before the end of the month.
>What transaction isn't? Are you talking about conning people out of some pocket money, (((anon)))?
You can't have any anonymity if you don't have any way to make anonymous exchanges. You can do anonymous exchange right now, with paper money. Paper money allow "black" market, markets out of any state control. For exemple, you buying something for you friend is anonymous, and is de facto in the "black market". It allows anyone to work without the need of any contract. It's the most basic need. With every transaction being traceable, you're done. You're just done. If they decide to deny you the right to possess a bank account, then you'll not being able to even buy from the most basic store. The whole economy will be controlled and monitored. But I guess that you trust your government and you bank to not do any arm against you, isn't it ((((((((anon))))))))? Saying that it profits the criminals is monstrously retarded, since the biggest criminals are the banks, and the companies not paying taxes by using tax heavens. It's not the little faggot drug dealer. Moreover, since it's the state that control the drug traffic, don't count on the fact that they'll track them through bitcoin transaction. Police don't have enough people anyway to do this job. That's why it's actually the banks who try to detect credit card fraud (under ~1000/2000 euros), and not the police.
>The only thing that does is prevent hoarding and even more egregious speculation. What? You're talking about monetary creation? That's the process that build paper money, that makes it remain on pure debt. The dollars paper money you have in your pocket is a debt upon the central bank. The money who's on your bank account is a debt on the bank. Nothing have any value, and it allows bank to create money out of nowhere. Well, not from nowhere, but from continuous inflation. Bitcoin will not solve anything. I pretty much think that it'll worsten the problem. I highly think that today's crypto will not be the future crypto used in global market (when the world will have only one global market). Maybe the blockchain will be private. Maybe they want a decentralised money to make it detached from any nation (since every nation will disapear, it's pretty logic) in apparence, but totaly controlled by the one setting it up. The whole economy is immoral. Bitcoin will not, but confirm everything that has been destroyed since the founding of modernity. You truly must be a redditor level faggot using his little mac to think that bictoin is a good thing. That's the same kind of guy who find it totaly normal to implant an RFID chip in their hand, or soon a neurolace. They're the one finding totaly normal to buy modern car which are connected to the manufacturer, manufacturer that can control the car, lock it, stop it etc...
>>11202 Not the same guy, but:
>If they decide to deny you the right to possess a bank account, then you'll not being able to even buy from the most basic store. You really don't know how bitcoin works. You don't need and "bank account". See TREZOR, for example:
>That's the same kind of guy who find it totaly normal to implant an RFID chip in their hand, or soon a neurolace. Oh, so you're one of these "mark of the beats" people? I expected more from you...
>>11203 "I" expected more of you. Don't tell me you're the common hn user, not risking to go in any direction that is not approved by the official good thinking institution. About the RFID, no, I don't think that it's particulary what is reffered to be the mark of the beast. I think that it's nearly nothing, especially when you look at the neurolace, and what are the tech possibilities that would be available in the close future. Honestly, the private corps already know everything about everyone. All i'm saying is that it's a very very dark future that is being releaved as the days advance. And it's certainly technology which is the conductor. It's like always: a trade between yourself, a piece of your soul and your privacy, for more comfort, social acceptance etc..
Moreover, you haven't read my post to the end: I'm saying that the future crypto currency will be far more controlled than what it is now. Every bank are testing their own crypto. Don't think that banks will diseapear with the founding of a global market based on an unique cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency does amaze me, I think it has potential (that is, *IF* continually allowed to).
However, I do see in the near future one of two things playing out on a global scale: either 1) governments will step in, intervene and take full control over it with new regulations and laws, thus undermining the whole freedom/anonymous concept ... OR 2) governments will just shut it all down, like they have begun to in China. And this will lead to arrests and raids if exchanges don't conform.
That being said, invest wisely and DO diversify! Do not hold all your eggs in one basket. Make sure you have plenty of basic essentials needed to survive stocked up (the prepper mindset), have some physical gold or silver coins to barter with, guns/ammo/mags won't hurt for self-defense (if you can get them), if you can buy some property away from a major city I highly recommend it if you are up to that line of work, make sure you minimize your debts too. Try to become as self-sufficient as possible.
We all know that governments are planning to steal our wealth via the banks. We need to be planning ahead of time, to mitigate how much they can steal. And it is possible but you have to diversify your investments and holdings. Don't just trust one entity to protect your wealth - it is mostly up to you. When SHTF you have what you can physically hold onto and that's pretty much it.
Former Clinton aide Imran Awan has been accused of sexually and physically abusing three women who he reportedly held as sex slaves.
According to police reports obtained under Virginia’s Freedom of Information Act, the indicted former IT aide for the Democratic party abused three Muslim women, and used his position at the White House to silence them into not reporting him to authorities.
Dailycaller.com reports: Officers found one of the women bloodied and she told them she “just wanted to leave,” while the second said she felt like a “slave,” according to Fairfax County Police reports obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group. A third woman claimed she was being kept “in captivity.”
The third woman is Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said in court documents that Awan invoked his authority as a congressional employee to intimidate immigrant women, in part by telling them he had the power to have people kidnapped.
All but two of the nearly two dozen Democratic women Awan worked for in the House declined to comment on the police reports.
Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee chairwoman, refused to fire Awan for months after his Feb. 2, 2017 banishment from the House computer network due to his being a suspect in a criminal investigation by the FBI and U.S. Capitol Police into a major cybersecurity breach.
Wasserman Schultz said that “as a mother, a Jew, and a member of Congress,” she wanted to defend his rights, a sentiment echoed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat. Rep. Gregory Meeks, a New York Democrat. Wasserman Schultz also claimed allegations against Awan might stem from Islamophobia. All three women are Muslim.
Awan’s attorney, Chris Gowen, a former aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, has blasted journalists covering the investigation. The press “should be reminded that Imran Awan is a husband and a father, not a political pawn,” Gowen said.
Awan’s attorneys declined to comment to TheDCNF on the police reports.
The Israeli government has drafted plans to "ethnically cleanse" (murder) Palestinians from the country and annex the entire West Bank.
The plan, proposed by Likud, has been designed to force Palestinian residents to immigrate against their will to neighbouring Arab countries.
Forward.com reports: Make no mistake about this — this plan amounts to a none-too-subtle form of ethnic cleansing. It presents Palestinians with an untenable choice: Leave your home or be stripped of basic human rights, perhaps forever.
Despite (or because of) its draconian nature, the plan was adopted unanimously at a September 12 convention of the National Union-Tekuma party, which holds two Knesset seats as the junior partner in the religious-nationalist Jewish Home bloc. National Union leader Uri Ariel serves as minister of agriculture in Benjamin Netanyahu’s Cabinet. The party’s other Knesset member, Bezalel Smotrich, is the author of the annexation plan.
It’s a marginal enough party that those concerned with human rights or with Israel’s international standing needn’t fear the plan’s immediate implementation. But we should be troubled by the plan’s institutional backing — not just in Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, but also in the heart of American Jewish philanthropy.
Smotrich’s plan was released September 6 in an 8,600-word lead essay, “The Decision Plan” (Tochnit Ha-Hachra’ah), in the fall issue of the Hebrew-language bimonthly Hashiloach, a conservative journal of ideas published by the New York-based Tikvah Fund.
That’s right — this plan’s institutional backing includes one of the most distinguished philanthropies in Diaspora Jewry. Tikvah is one of several neoconservative foundations endowed by the estate of the late investment fund manager Zalman-Sanford Bernstein. It is largely controlled by his widow, the philanthropist Elaine Mem Bernstein, and Tikvah’s board of directors includes some of the most prominent names in Jewish neoconservatism, among them William Kristol and Elliott Abrams.
A morally repugnant concept that was rightly condemned as racist a generation ago is now the policy of an Israeli government coalition partner. This should have caused an immediate coalition crisis but, shamefully, it hasn’t.
President Donald Trump praised China’s central bank after they ordered banks to cease doing business with North Korea.
“I want to just say and thank President Xi of China for the very bold move he made today,” Trump said. “It was a somewhat unexpected move and we appreciate it.
Chinese banks were told in a memo to cease working with new and existing North Korean entities, according to a Reuters report, citing the need to cooperate with United Nations sanctions.
Trump also announced a new executive order, allowing the Treasury Department to target foreign banks and businesses doing business with North Korea with sanctions.
“Foreign banks will face a clear choice: Do business with the U.S. or facilitate trade with the lawless regime in North Korea,” Trump said in a statement during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in New York City.
Trump said that North Korea had abused the financial system to fund their nuclear weapons programs and continued threatening their neighbors.
“I must tell you that this is a complete denuclearization of North Korea that we seek,” Trump said. “We cannot have this as a world body any longer.”
The best possible outcome is this ends in an extreme train wreck and Intel remove ME/vPro on desktop chips.
Less ideal is after said train wreck people create tools to easily disable this shit.
Worst case, it's only a partial train wreck and Intel dismiss the whole thing with marketing and PR bull shit about increasing security so it doesn't happen again and the majority go back to sucking Intel dick.
>>11253 Normies will never even hear about this, and the few that do will not care. Normies do not even use Intel hardware anymore, except at work. They use ARM processors on their smartphones and tablets. Those that do use laptops use Apple, and will be convinced that they are immune to this problem.
<teehee, I use Mac, not Intel, silly. It's SO SECURE! Way better than that Windows or Intel or whatever you're talking about. OMG did you see that article on Black Lives Matter from HuffPo?! I mean, I didn't read it on HuffPo, just in my Facebook feed. OMG!!!!!!! [ten emojis follow]
Wow. The radical leftist political insanity and whining continues without remorse.
Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who previously has called for the impeachment of Donald Trump, on Thursday told a Congressional Black Caucus Town Hall that she expects other members of the black community to back her up, no matter what lack of evidence has been provided:
“Don't come here and tell me, ‘Maxine, you keep on doing what you do.’ But when you gonna give me some support?” she asked. “How many of you in your organizations have said, 'Impeach 45'?”
Waters urged the crowd not to get 'hung up' on what law to invoke in the impeachment process:
Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is. There is no law that dictates impeachment. What the Constitution says is “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and we define that.
So apparently Maxine Waters does not care if no actual laws were broken, or even if the President didn't have anything to do with "rigging the election"... obviously this shows her utter contempt for democracy (when she doesn't get her way, that is).
Does Maxine Waters know this is exactly what fascist and communist countries do to stifle their political opponents? They just make up random "crimes" as time goes on as an excuse to imprison and subjugate any and all dissent.
Good idea, Maxine. Your showing your TRUE colors right here.

Last week US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin warned the US will impose new sanctions on China if it doesn't conform to UN sanctions on North Korea:
"If China doesn’t follow these sanctions, we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the U.S. and international dollar system, and that’s quite meaningful."
In other words, the administration wants to sanction one of the US's biggest trading partners, and the world's second-largest economy.
China is the world's third-largest recipient of Americans exports, behind only Canada and Mexico. China is the world's largest source of imports for Americans, slightly ahead of both Mexico and Canada.
In 2016, Americans exported $169 billion in goods and services to China while importing $478 billion of goods and services. Every year, both consumers and producers benefit from the importation of Chinese electronics, machinery, food, footwear, and more.
Ratcheting up economic warfare with China could serve to cut off these avenues of trade and thus will only cost consumers and small business owners who currently benefit from lower-cost machinery, clothing, and more.
For the mercantilists in the Trump administration, of course, American consumers import "too much" from China anyway, and Americans ought to be prohibited by the US government from purchasing what they want.
As Mnuchin notes, the strategy here is to "prevent [the Chinese] from accessing the U.S. and international dollar system." In practice, this would likely mean restricting access to the so-called SWIFT system which facilitates international transactions in dollars.
This idea is highly problematic in its own way. Were the Chinese to be cut off from the dollar, this would only create an enormous incentive for the Chinese to move away from the dollar into other currencies — including its own. China's largest trading partners would likely follow China in this exodus. Moreover, China and Russia have already foreseen the possibility of SWIFT being "weaponized."
China, Russia and others have seen this day coming and have created their own SWIFT system, world cable network and world banking system. All that’s needed to kick it all into gear is a major international need to bypass SWIFT. The US government has just provided that need with this threat. There would certainly be teething pains in getting the new system running on a massive scale, but the sudden worldwide need would drive the implementation.
Moreover, China is a key trading partner for Germany, Russia, Australia, Japan. Brazil, and South Korea. Will these countries simply write off China as a trading partner because thy can't settle accounts in dollars? It's unlikely.
While this would not necessarily destroy the dollar, a movement away from the US dollar would greatly diminish the dollar's standing as the world's reserve currency. It would diminish the dollar's role as the go-to currency, and this would, in turn, drive up borrowing costs — i.e. interest rates — for the US government. This would make our debt problem even more unsustainable and insolvent in return.
The fact is, as Foreign Policy noted last year, China is becoming "too big to sanction." Todd Williamson writes on how the IMF has now added China’s currency, the renminbi (RMB), to its basket of four reserve currencies known as Special Drawing Rights. In doing so, Williamson notes, the IMF "may have delivered a severe blow to the strength of a key tool in the West’s geopolitical arsenal: financial sanctions."
The RMB is currently the fourth-most traded currency on the global market (behind the dollar, euro, and pound). It now holds the third highest percentage in the basket, at just under 11 percent, placing it ahead of the pound’s 8 percent (though far below the dollar, which holds more than 40 percent). The IMF’s decision to include the RMB is more than a symbolic sign of the currency’s liberalization: It’s also a big step toward the RMB’s regular usage outside of China. The SDR determines the mix of currencies in which the IMF lends out — a total of $112 billion in 2015 — and the RMB’s inclusion in this distribution mechanism will likely drive up the currency’s demand. The comfort level of the RMB’s usage in global transactions among central banks, sovereign wealth funds, and other massive financial institutions will rise with the currency’s greater accessibility.
In other words, slapping financial sanctions on the Chinese is nothing at all like doing the same to the Iranians or the Venezuelans. The Chinese economy and the Chinese currency are already huge global players which huge trading partners.
One has to wonder if the United States government is being coaxed by China with all the North Korea threats, as a strawman to pull the rug from under the US dollar. We all know China has deep connections with North Korea, what better way to come up with some hyperbole 'external threat' that would lead the US into a reactionary frenzy to "piss off China", then giving China THE PERFECT EXCUSE TO REJECT THE DOLLAR, as they are all ready to set-up their own exchange?
Kinda makes one think if this hasn't been in the plans for a long, long time.
>>1810 I have a feeling this is not the only crackdown that will ensue, governments around the world are NOT about to allow an unregulated decentralized currency - which could potentially undermine their control over the population and protect our wealth - continue forever.
Just like the US govt banned public possession of gold during the Great Depression, they'll likely resort to the same despotism eventually targeting not only precious metal holdings but cryptocurrency as well. A goldman sachs banker recently hinted that "they will not allow this (cryptocurrency) to continue forever unchallenged." I'm sure politicians are busy drafting a future ban behind the scenes right now.
They do want a digital currency system for their NWO but they intend to have FULL CONTROL of it and will eventually use it to remotely confiscate our wealth. So if you have a lot invested in cryptocurrency best beware you may become an outlaw someday just for using it courtesy of the IRS gestapo.
Blowback Ensues As CIA Went Rogue, Defying Trump's Order To Stop Arming Terrorists: Spetsnaz Fights US Troops And ISIS Militants, Saves 29 Russian Soldiers From Capture
Rebel factions linked to Al Qaeda and their ‘US Secret Services’ handlers had their butts kicked on Wednesday trying to capture 29 Russian soldiers in northern Syria, according to the Russian military.
It’s a real war out there … and Russians and Americans are practically in combat.
General Sergei Rudskoi explains that the CIA and their Al Qaeda proxies, had a very, very bad day yesterday, during an offensive against the Syrian army on the border of Hama and Idlib provinces.
[The US Military Industrial Complex] loves bombing small, defenseless countries into the stone age, it’s part of their culture like baseball, apple pie, and morbid obesity. One of the things they never do, however, is pick on a country that can fight back.
Well this time they messed with the Russian Bear himself and like Napoleon and Hitler before them, reality ensued.
The 29 Russians were trapped for several hours by the militants, engaged in a heavy fire-fight for their very survival.
Finally, a nearby Spetsnaz (Special Operations) unit, partially composed of ‘military natives of the North Caucusus’ (these are probably Chechens, the fiercest soliders Russia has), broke through the terrorist line.
They successfully reached their comrades, and though three operators were injured, Russia suffered no casualties.
AL-Qaeda and the US ‘Secret Services’ however, had a very, very, bad day.
“187 objects, about 850 terrorists, 11 tanks, four armoured vehicles, 46 pickups, five mortars, 20 trucks and 38 weapons warehouses were destroyed in a 24-hours period by the Russian counterattack.”
The Russian General’s closing comment, delivered in matter-of-fact monotone was classic:
“The operation to destroy the terrorists will be continued.”
>>11232 Was that meant to be a capitalised "YOU" or are you just unaware of what the internet or the web is?
>>11234 >and you are like OP >but that doesn't affect cyclists >What most stupid respondents are saying is to build a new shiny car model Your metaphor could be better defined but message received. To try and use your metaphor: The "cars" can only drive on the roads. I'm saying we become "cyclists" and get off the roads.
That said, the idea that we can keep our own little corner of the web clean, safe and free browser compliant (which I assume you are saying) is naive. For reasons stated here >>11213 the web and because of that in part the internet is now compromised as a safe platform. Even non web applications like IRC rely on domain name servers and the web to communicate the address to users. If the web does become hostile we can only hope it's at such a slow transition that we can easily adapt. Alternatively we can start discussing technologies now.
>>11237 >become "cyclists" and get off the roads Now you're purposely being ignorant of both human behavior and progression. The cyclists expression here is using cURL or ed browser to "display" a httpd "site". I'm sure even /g/ wants to be able to at the least display video and sound, no? By aeroplanes, I mean better clients like seamonkey and flexget.
>>11234 Banks, websites, governments, etc. could have been requiring DRM for years in order to access and interact with their content. Flash and Silverlight make DRM possible. EME has been implemented in various browsers for years, and in all major browsers since 2016. Every single site on the web could have required users to use DRM to access their content for years now.
Yet they haven't, and have no reason to do so for most content. Again, you do not understand what DRM is, apparently.
Were you freaking out about your bank potentially requiring DRM 7 years ago, even though they could have done so at any time? No. Because you have no fucking idea what you're talking about.
You're freaking out about it now, because you read about the W3C recommendation a couple days ago on reddit and now, all of a sudden, you think the sky's falling.
China has begun rounding up and detaining Bitcoin executives who run exchanges in the country, amid a huge crackdown against cryptocurrencies.
As the war on Bitcoin continues, Chinese media is reporting that executives who operate Bitcoin exchanges are being told they are not allowed to leave Beijing whilst the government conducts an investigation.
“A number of informed sources say the executives of special currency trading platforms are not allowed to leave Beijing to cooperate with the investigation. In accordance with regulatory requirements, trading platform shareholders, the actual controller, executives and financial executives need to fully cooperate with the relevant work in the clean-up period in Beijing.”
Trustnodes.com reports: Australia’s Financial Review (AFR) says the above has been confirmed with them by “a source close to one of the biggest exchanges, Huobi,” which told them its founder, Li Lin, was required to “report to the authorities and cooperate with their work at any time.”
The draconian measure is undertaken following a decision by China’s Communist Party to close down all crypto exchanges, with trading volumes in the country dropping considerably.
Chinese trading volumes now account for only around 5% – 10% of bitcoin’s or ethereum’s global trading volumes. With price there significantly lower. Leading CoinMarketCap to exclude them from calculations of average prices.
China, therefore, appears to have isolated themselves, while the rest of the world seemingly moves on, but questions are being raised regarding miners, with some 80% of their operations centralized in the country.
An investor in Chinese bitcoin mines told AFP: “All of us didn’t believe they would shut down the exchanges so we are preparing for the worst.”
China’s decision to shut down exchanges took many by surprise and was very unexpected with the authoritarian government giving no hint they plan to take such draconian measures.
U.S. President Donald Trump blocked a Chinese-backed private equity firm from buying a U.S.-based chipmaker on Wednesday, sending a clear signal to Beijing that Washington will oppose takeover deals that involve technologies with potential military applications.
Canyon Bridge Capital Partners' planned $1.3-billion acquisition of Lattice Semiconductor Corp was one of the largest attempted by a Chinese-backed firm in the U.S. microchip sector and was the first announced deal for the buyout fund, which launched last year with a focus on technology investment. U.S. regulatory scrutiny grew after Reuters reported in November that Canyon Bridge was funded partly by capital from China's central government and had indirect links to its space program.
U.S. defense officials subsequently raised concerns about the Lattice acquisition by a firm backed by the Chinese government.
The Portland, Oregon-based company makes chips known as field-programmable gate arrays, which allow companies to put their own software on silicon chips for different uses. It said it no longer sells chips to the U.S. military, unlike its two biggest rivals, Xilinx Inc and Intel Corp's Altera.
Trump said in an executive order that Lattice and Canyon Bridge "shall take all steps necessary to fully and permanently abandon the proposed transaction" within 30 days.
Trump's decision chimes with the views of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which scrutinizes deals for potential national security threats.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement that "CFIUS and the president assess that the transaction poses a risk to the national security of the United States that cannot be resolved through mitigation."
WikiLeaks recently released documents that reportedly detail a mass surveillance system used by the Russian state to spy on Russian Internet users.
The whistleblowing group WikiLeaks has released new documents that the group claims outlines a mass surveillance system used by the Russian state to spy on Internet and mobile device users. The latest release, titled “Spy Files,” claims that a well-known Russian company that provides software to telecommunication companies is also, under state orders, installing infrastructure enabling the Russian government to spy on citizen’s digital activity.
In the summary of the leak series, WikiLeaks writes, “While the surveillance of communication traffic is a global phenomena, the legal and technological framework of its operation is different for each country. Russia’s laws —especially the new Yarovaya Law — make literally no distinction between lawful interception and mass surveillance by state intelligence authorities (SIAs) without court orders.” The summary continues to say, “Russian communication providers are required by Russian law to install the so-called SORM ( Система Оперативно-Розыскных Мероприятий) components for surveillance provided by the FSB at their own expense. The SORM infrastructure is developed and deployed in Russia with close cooperation between the FSB, the Interior Ministry of Russia and Russian surveillance contractors.”
The documents published by WikiLeaks focus on a St. Petersburg based company called Peter-Service which WikiLeaks claims is a contractor for Russian state surveillance. Peter-Service was founded in 1992 to provide billing solutions but soon went on to supply telecommunications software to major mobile providers and companies. WikiLeaks states:
The technologies developed and deployed by PETER-SERVICE today go far beyond the classical billing process and extend into the realms of surveillance and control. Although compliance to the strict surveillance laws is mandatory in Russia, rather than being forced to comply PETER-SERVICE appears to be quite actively pursuing partnership and commercial opportunities with the state intelligence apparatus.
As a matter of fact PETER-SERVICE is uniquely placed as a surveillance partner due to the remarkable visibility their products provide into the data of Russian subscribers of mobile operators, which expose to PETER-SERVICE valuable metadata, including phone and message records, device identifiers (IMEI, MAC addresses), network identifiers (IP addresses), cell tower information and much more. This enriched and aggregated metadata is of course of interest to Russian authorities, whose access became a core component of the system architecture.
WikiLeaks media partner La Repubblica reports that the Spy Files release covers, “an extended timespan from 2007 to June 2015”, and describes the contents as “extremely technical.” The documents do however not mention the Russian spy agency FSB but rather “speaks only of state agencies” which according to La Repubblica, “certainly includes law enforcement, who use metadata for legal interception.” The documents also do, “not clarify what other state apparatus access those data through the solution of the St. Petersburg company.”
La Repubblica notes that, “the manuals published by WikiLeaks contain the images of interfaces that allow you to search within these huge data fields, so access is simple and intuitive.” WikiLeaks notes that under Russian law, telecommunications companies must employ a Data Retention System (DRS) which can store data for up to three years. Peter-Services DSR system stores telephone traffic data which “allows Russian state agencies to query the database of all stored data in search of information.”
What would you do if you were told that you could not be present for a ‘private’ meeting between your 12 to 17 year-old child and an unknown nurse or care-giver with a list of questions that would be put in their ‘medical’ record forever? I am not sure if I am a ‘normal’ parent or not but after being a practicing RN for over 20 years, I would say, “No thank you!”
Whether it be through Common Core or medical laws, there are rumblings that 'progressives' (cover term for communists) are looking to take parents out of the equation whenever and wherever possible. The plight of the Pelletier family is one current warning of what is just around the corner unless we all wake up.
Christy Duffy was unpleasantly surprised when she took her daughter to the doctor recently. When she arrived in the office, a notice on the door terrified and angered her.
Needless to say this mom was not happy with the notice or the nurse’s insistence that there was no way for her to opt out…
I asked if this policy was in effect and if so, how could I opt out. The receptionist told me it’s a new law and there is no opting out. Working to keep my cool, I said, “I’m sure there is.” She said, “No, there isn’t.” At which point I asked if I needed to leave and go to the urgent care center because I was not submitting my daughter to such a conversation.
>>1792 This mom is exactly correct. The law might sound reasonable to some on the face of it, but with just a little thought one should see potential long-term consequences for you and your child. By allowing these people ‘private’ time with adolescent children, it strips away the rights of parents. Why would the government want to do this?
By removing the power to raise our children out of the hands of parents, a vacuum is created, and the government rushes in to fill that void. In this case, they use medical personnel to do the job.
Forbes states, “Following the Newtown, CT shootings, President Obama issued an executive order clarifying that ‘the Affordable Care Act [ObamaCare] does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.’ The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) similarly encourages physicians to ask patients if they own firearms — in the name of protecting child safety.”
It’s not the physician’s job to help your family with safety issues. In that case, they should inspect each knife you own. It is their job to help your family with health issues, and that is all. In their defense, many doctors are overwhelmed by their caseloads and simply comply instead of rock the boat. If at all possible, talk to other mothers and seek out one of the many doctors that is still truly family-friendly.
What Can Be Done?
We should not remain silent. There is strength in knowing about it; talking and praying about this with other parents and family members is a powerful step.
And, we have an Almighty God who cares about parents and children; our prayers accomplish much. “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” ~1 Timothy 2:1
There is another hope on the horizon! A proposed Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is already slowly making its way through the Congress. Once adopted, the PRA will guard the fundamental right of parents to make decisions – medical, educational, in fact all kinds of decisions – for their children.
Just a couple months into Hillary Clinton’s term as Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation invited Vladimir Putin and other leaders to the Clinton Global Initiative’s 2009 annual gathering.
The email containing the list of leaders who were invited was forwarded in March of 2009 from the Director of Foreign Policy of the Clinton Foundation Amitabh Desai to former Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro. Shapiro then forwarded it to Hillary’s foreign policy advisor Jake Sullivan showing a conflict of interest between the Clinton Foundation and the federal government.
Hillary Clinton was also seeking to ‘reset’ relations with Russia at this time. Remember that cheap plastic ‘reset’ button she handed the Russian Foreign Minister that actually said ‘overcharged’? What a disaster!
What about Hillary’s Uranium deal with Russia? Nearly 20% of the U.S.’s Uranium assets were sold to Russia while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State in exchange for $150 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Bill Clinton also gave a speech to the Russia-based Renaissance Capital in Moscow on June 29, 2010.
You know the government is politically bias and there is no real justice when a crooked politician can walk away after helping sell uranium to Russia (a country openly labeled an enemy) yet they are investigating a political opponent who has virtually no ties to major Russian interests and cannot provide any proof. When there is plenty of proof about the other politician's shady ties.
New York police teamed up with Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) investigators to seize enough fentanyl and other dangerous drugs to kill up to 32 million people–270 pounds worth. The drug seizure became the largest drug bust in New York City history.
DEA agents joined with the New York Police Department to seize nearly 270 pounds of fentanyl, cocaine, and heroin, the New York Post reported.
“The sheer volume of fentanyl pouring into the city is shocking,” Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan said in a written statement. “The city is used as a hub of regional distribution for a lethal substance that is taking thousands of lives throughout the Northeast.”
Fentanyl can produce deadly consequences in doses of just two to three milligrams, PIX 11 reported. Officials said the quantities seized could have led to the 32 million lethal doses.
Initially, investigators found 140 pounds of fentanyl in one raid at the Kew Garden apartments. Additionally, law enforcement officers found 59 pounds of fentanyl that had been mixed with other drugs, such as heroin and cocaine.
Agents arrested Rogelio Alvarado-Robles and Blanca Flores-Solis during the initial raid.
A second raid, carried out this month, led to the seizure of 55 pounds of heroin and fentanyl in the Bronx. The raid led to the arrests of Edwin Guzman, 35, and Manuel Rivera-Santana, 32.
Earlier this year, Breitbart Texas reported a warning to law enforcement officers nationwide about the dangers of contacting fentanyl dust. The warning came after an Ohio police officer passed out after merely brushing some fentanyl dust off of his shirt. He brushed the dust away with his bare hand, leaving him unconscious. After medical teams saved his life, he continued experiencing chest pains, headaches, and fatigue.
THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT HAS SHOWN THEIR TRUE INTENTIONS: THEY WANT OBAMACARE TO STAY!
On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted the Graham-Cassidy Bill as “barely Obamacare-lite.”
Rand said Graham-Cassidy “actually keeps the Obamacare spending and just redistributes it among the states. It’s a $1.2 trillion federal grant program, and that’s just not repeal. I didn’t promise people to keep a trillion-dollar spending program and re-shuffle the money among the states. This is not repeal. It’s not even — It’s barely Obamacare-lite. It keeps Obamacare. It’s not what we promised.”
He added, “When this bill comes up next week, I will, once again, offer a real repeal. So, there will be a choice. There’ll be real repeal. But I’m also working another tact. I’m working with president trump on healthcare associations, which can be done with no money, no federal money, no federal taxes, no Obamacare taxes. And what happens is that people can buy insurance across state lines, and people can join a group. So they get group insurance, which protects them against pre-existing conditions, but gets them a great price. … It’s just not a conservative notion to vote for a trillion-dollar federal grant program.”
Rand also argued that Graham-Cassidy isn’t “the last chance. We will have many more opportunities.”
Rand concluded that Senator Graham has “been known to be wrong and not very conservative on a number of issues. So, you can ask him how federalism is having a trillion-dollar tax program at the federal level and passing it out. That’s not federalism.”
VOTE THE ESTABLISHMENT CUCKS OUT NEXT ELECTION! ALL OF THEM NEED TO GO, THEY ARE NOT CONSERVATIVES!
Back in March, former Director of National Intelligence turned CNN contributor James Clapper swore up and down that no one on the Trump campaign was wiretapped and insisted he “would know” if that was the case.
Even though he’s a proven liar who was caught lying to congress before about mass surveillance, the mass media took his assurance that Trump and his campaign was not spied on as gospel.
CNN even went on to hire Clapper as a contributor a few months later.
Thanks to Monday’s report from CNN which detailed how the government spied on Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort before and after the election, we now know Clapper was lying once again.
“But I will say that, for the part of the national security apparatus that I oversaw as DNI, there was no such wiretap activity mounted against– the president elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign. I can’t speak for other Title Three authorized entities in the government or a state or local entity,” Clapper told NBC’s Chuck Todd in March.
TODD: Yeah, I was just going to say, if the F.B.I., for instance, had a FISA court order of some sort for a surveillance, would that be information you would know or not know?

Members of Congress in both parties have begun exploring possible legislative action against Facebook and other tech giants, setting the stage for a potentially massive battle in the midterm election year of 2018.
Why it matters: Following panic about the freedom of speech and press over the internet (aka "fake news") which led to a democratic defeat of the neo-liberal communist/marxist government in the United States, politicians across the spectrum (commies and cucks alike) declared more more scrutiny, surveillance and restrictions are needed.
The shift against our free internet has been sudden, and is one of the biggest stories of the year.
Republicans are likely to emphasize the national security and homeland security aspects to 'reining in' the tech companies (or should I say, their consumers).
On the Democrats side, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia is actively working to develop legislation to improve disclosure for online political ads.
Warner's office tells me: "As more and more dollars are being spent on these digital platforms, we may need legislation to require more disclosure about political ads running on social media, the way we do for television ads. ... [T]he ads you may see on Facebook are not public and are targeted narrowly to users based on different variables — making disclosure and transparency even more vital."
Global retailer Toys”R”Us, a fixture in post-war America’s booming toys market, said it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, strangled by heavy debt and a tough environment for bricks and mortar stores.
The chain, founded in 1948 and “the world’s leading dedicated toy and baby products retailer”, sells in the United States and 38 other countries and jurisdictions, with a 23-percent share of the global toy market.
It now joins other traditional retailers that are struggling to compete with the likes of Amazon.
The company will “restructure its outstanding debt and establish a sustainable capital structure that will enable it to invest in long-term growth and fuel its aspirations to bring play to kids everywhere and be a best friend to parents,” Toys”R”Us said in a statement late Monday.
It noted that operations outside the United States and Canada, “including its approximately 255 licensed stores and joint venture partnership in Asia,” are not part of the bankruptcy proceedings.
“Together with our investors, our objective is to work with our debtholders and other creditors to restructure the $5 billion of long-term debt on our balance sheet, which will provide us with greater financial flexibility to invest in our business, continue to improve the customer experience in our physical stores and online, and strengthen our competitive position in an increasingly challenging and rapidly changing retail marketplace worldwide,” chairman and chief executive Dave Brandon said in the statement.
Various lenders including JPMorgan have agreed to infuse Toys”R”Us more than $3 billion which will “immediately improve the company’s financial health and support its ongoing operations during the court-supervised process.”
The company’s approximately 1,600 Toys”R”Us and Babies”R”Us stores around the world — “the vast majority of which are profitable” – will operate as usual, it said.

Interchan warning system is an anonymously run form of online EAM/EAN civil emergency message relay service, not affiliated with any government agency. Interchan warning system relays information in part based on alerts from the DEFCON warning system
Interchan warning system is tested only in advance of or during times of extreme strategic military tension or buildup globally. The system is only tested if evidence suggests a real defcon number of between 4 and 2 exists due to a strategic crises. The last time interchan warning system was tested was during the syrian chemical crises after russian surface ships took offensive positions in the Mediterranean sea during the obama administration.
