Fears Raised After China Begins Building Mass Indoctrination Camps Across America

As a justification to the fears being raised by the US House Intelligence Committee, who just declared that communist China now poses “a pre-eminent threat to American security and values”, a new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today is further questioning why the Chinese have begun building mass indoctrination camps throughout the United States modeled on those used in their own country to “culturally cleanse” those not adhering to approved state thought.

According to this report, communist China, home to 20 percent of the world’s population but only 8 percent of the world’s arable land, has gone abroad in search of farmland to feed its over 1.4 billion population—and whose main focus has been on the United States where, by 2014, foreign nations had acquired a staggering 27.3 million acres of American land—and that equals the entire size of the US State of Tennessee.

https://modernfarmer.com/2017/07/theres-foreign-owned-american-farmland-size-tennessee-know/
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-04-03/chinese-are-buying-large-chunks-land-across-america-and-zillow-now-enabling-it

China’s main focus in land acquisition in the United States, this report details, has been their acquiring massive farms and farmlands that they first began to acquire in the States of California and New York, where they had built up large population centers—and from there have spread out across the United States gobbling up land in Texas, Virginia, Florida, and Indiana—with their further acquiring nearly 80,000 housing units to which they are flooding into some of their top military, intelligence, police and population control experts.

https://www.citylab.com/life/2017/07/chinese-investmment-in-us-real-estate/534894/

With communist China rapidly accelerating its buying up of nearly every single piece of land in America it can, this report continues, the SVR, in 2013, became gravely alarmed when the Obama regime shockingly allowed the largest Chinese acquisition of an American company to date—which was China’s acquisition of the largest food producer in the US called Smithfield Foods—and whose 146,000 acres of land made the Chinese company WH Group one of the largest overseas owners of American farmland in history.

Formerly known as Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd. when it purchased Smithfield Foods, this report details, the WH Group’s communist ownership of this American food producing giant constitutes one of the gravest national security threats ever faced by the United States—and as detailed by some of America’s top legal and intelligence experts in their scathing report titled PROTECTING NATIONAL SECURITY: HOW THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT PUT OUR NATION AT RISK BY APPROVING THE ACQUISITION OF SMITHFIELD FOODS BY SHUANGHUI INTERNATIONAL — and wherein, in part, they warned:

CFIUS should not have approved the Smithfield-Shuanghui acquisition because of the significant risks the merger posed to United States national security.

These included threats to the domestic food supply, technological developments, and military security created by a foreign purchaser taking control of a vast American company.

Despotic Traitors Face Lawsuits And Rebellion In Boulder City Colorado For Violating 2nd Amendment Rights

REFUSE TYRANNY! DO NOT GIVE UP THE GUNS!

The Boulder City Council unanimously passed a sweeping gun control ordinance Tuesday night banning legal semi-autos and bump stocks, even as a pro-Second Amendment group threatened to retaliate by suing individual councilmembers.

In a surprising turn, one Colorado councilwoman admitted that she disagreed with the ordinance "in many ways," saying it would invite a flood of litigation -- despite voting for it.

The city defines assault weapons as "semi-automatic firearms designed with military features to allow rapid spray firing for the quick and efficient killing of humans."

Included in the definition are "all semiautomatic action rifles with a detachable magazine with a capacity of twenty-one or more rounds," as well as "semiautomatic shotguns with a folding stock or a magazine capacity of more than six rounds or both."

"We're going to see a lot of court cases coming before us" Boulder City Councilwoman Mirabai Nagel admits.

As usual - as not to upset other officials in power - law enforcement and military personnel are exempted from the ordinance.

During the public comment period for the legislation, the nonprofit Mountain States Legal Foundation promised to sue the city for "violations of the Second, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments," as well as the Colorado Constitution, Fox's KDVR-TV reported.

A staff attorney for the group, Cody Wisniewski, said that individual councilmembers would be named in the lawsuit, according to the network.

Lawsuits generally cannot be directed personally at individual lawmakers for their official actions in legislative sessions, but naming elected officials in civil actions against the government is often acceptable as long as plaintiffs are not seeking to hold lawmakers personally liable for allegedly unconstitutional conduct.

The nonprofit's threat of legal action apparently did not come as a surprise to members of the city council, who said they anticipated complications.

Cambridge Professor Outed As FBI Informant Inside Trump Campaign

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI.

Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.

The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap Trump campaign aides. Papodopoulous has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, while Page was the subject of a federal surveillance warrant.

“If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal,” President Trump tweeted Saturday, calling for the FBI to release additional documents to Congress.

The Halper revelation also shows the Obama administration’s FBI began prying into the opposing party’s presidential nominee earlier than it previously admitted.

Halper’s sit-downs with Page reportedly started in early July 2016, undermining fired FBI Director James Comey’s previous claim that the bureau’s investigation into the Trump campaign began at the end of that month.

Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails.

The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic.

Clovis did not see the conversation as suspicious, his attorney told the paper — but is now “unsettled” that “the professor” never mentioned he’d struck up a relationship with Page.

Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region.

Trump Gives Merkel Ultimatum: Drop Russian Gas Pipeline Or Trade War Begins

It became clear just how important it is to the US for Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project to fail two months ago when, as we described in "US Threatens Sanctions For European Firms Participating In Russian Gas Pipeline Project", the U.S. State Department warned European corporations that they will likely face penalties and sanctions if they participate in the construction of Russia's Nord Stream 2 on the grounds that "the project undermines energy security in Europe", when in reality Russia has for decades been a quasi-monopolist on European energy supplies and thus has unprecedented leverage over European politics, at least behind the scenes.

“As many people know, we oppose the Nord Stream 2 project, the US government does,” State Department spokeswoman, Heather Nauert said during a late March press briefing adding that "the Nord Stream 2 project would undermine Europe's overall energy security and stability. It would provide Russia [with] another tool to pressure European countries, especially countries such as Ukraine." And speaking of Ukraine, recall that in 2014, shortly after the US State Department facilitated the presidential coup in Ukraine, Joe Biden's son Hunter joined the board of directors of Burisma, Ukraine's largest oil and gas company. Surely that was merely a coincidence.

Nauert also said that Washington may introduce punitive measures against participants in the pipeline project - which could be implemented using a provision in the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).

Fast forward to today, when the dreadfully named CAATSA act just made a repeat appearance; around the time Europe made it clear it would openly defy Trump's Iran sanctions, the WSJ reported that Trump told Merkel that if she wants to avoid a trans-Atlantic trade war, the price would be to pull the break on Nord Stream 2, according to German, U.S. and European sources.

The officials said Mr. Trump told German Chancellor Angela Merkel in April that Germany should drop support for Nord Stream 2, an offshore pipeline that would bring gas directly from Russia via the Baltic Sea. This would be in exchange for the U.S. starting talks with the European Union on a new trade deal.

While it had long been suspected that Trump would push hard to dismantle Nord Stream 2 just so US nat gas exporters could grab a slice of the European market pie, the aggressive push comes as a surprise, and as the WSJ notes, "the White House pressure reflects its hard ball tactics on trade, moves that have contributed to rising tensions between Europe and the U.S. and raised fears in export-dependent Germany of a tit-for-tat on tariffs that could engulf its car industry."

The Nord Stream II (or NS2) project was started in 2015 is a joint venture between Russia's Gazprom and European partners, including German Uniper, Austria's OMV, France's Engie, Wintershall and the British-Dutch multinational Royal Dutch Shell. The pipeline is set to run from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea - doubling the existing pipeline's capacity of 55 cubic meters per year, and is therefore critical for Europe's future energy needs.

NS2 is the second phase of an existing pipeline that already channels smaller amount of gas from Russia to Germany. Construction for the second phase started this week in Germany, after investors committed €5 billion ($5.9 billion) to the venture.

Trump has publicly criticized the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, saying at a meeting with Baltic State leaders at the White House this year that “Germany hooks up a pipeline into Russia, where Germany is going to be paying billions of dollars for energy into Russia…That’s not right.”

The Kremlin shot back immediately as spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the U.S. efforts “a crude effort to hinder an international energy project that has an important role in energy security.”

“The Americans are simply trying crudely to promote their own gas producers,” he said.

Italian's 'Anti-Establishment' Parties Reach Deal, Propose New Currency Plan

In 2009/10, squeezed by insolvency, a lack of liquidity, and Federal limitations, the California government began to issue a 'parallel currency' in IOUs in lieu of payment on everything from supplies to contracted services and health-care costs, so it can actually preserve cash to make payments to its generous debtors.

Now, eight years later, despite all the talk of 'recovery' and 'global synchronous growth' and 'normalization', Italy's newly-formed coalition of The League and Five Star (which some have likened to Trumpian 'nationalist' Republicans merging with Bernie leftists) have put forward a plan that, among other things, includes the introduction of a parallel currency for Italy - 'mini-BOTs'.

The chart below, created by analysts at Nomura, shows where both stand on key policy issues, highlighting both their similarities and their differences as they prepare to govern together.

It is the Italian euroskepticism that dominates market concerns. Investors were initially spooked by a section where the nascent coalition floated plans to ask for €250 billion in debt forgiveness for the country. But, as Credit Suisse argued,

"A markedly Eurosceptic prime minister... as well as concrete support for the introduction of a parallel currency (so-called Mini-BOTs'), would be major negatives, in our view."

In order to settle bills with suppliers or creditors the state might consider “instruments such as mini-government notes” which may also be used in turn to repay tax arrears, says the government program agreed by the two parties’ representatives and leaders.

Earlier this year, outgoing Economy Minister Pier Carlo Padoan described the proposal as “a plan to circulate a disguised parallel currency”.

It is this section of the Five Star-League Accord that raised eyebrows...

“Something must be done to resolve the problem of the public administration debts to taxpayers.”

Facebook Partners with Globalist Atlantic Council to Interfere in Elections Around the World

Facebook has partnered with the Atlantic Council, whose members include arch-globalists like Henry Kissinger and Dina Powell, to “protect free and fair elections around the world.”

Facebook announced earlier today that the Atlantic Council will provide it with “real-time insights and updates on emerging threats and disinformation campaigns from around the world.”

In other words, Facebook will trust a globalist think-tank to distinguish “disinformation” from the spin and sloganeering that characterize virtually all democratic elections.

Facebook says it will also rely on monitoring teams from the Atlantic Council during elections:

Facebook will also use the Atlantic Council’s Digital Research Unit Monitoring Missions during elections and other highly sensitive moments. This will allow us to focus on a particular geographic area — monitoring for misinformation and foreign interference and also working to help educate citizens as well as civil society.

The thought that a globalist think tank might be biased against certain politicians around the world, and that this might affect their opinion of what counts as “misinformation,” does not seem to have occurred to Facebook.

To cite just one example, the Atlantic Council has branded Hungary’s anti-globalist Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán, as a “far-right autocrat” who runs a “quasi-authoritarian regime that bears little semblance to the democracy that allowed its accession to the EU and NATO”.

Authoritarians who cozy up to the globalist agenda don’t get harsh treatment. The same Atlantic Council that condemned Orbán’s victory hosted Turkey’s President Erdoğan, whose government recently invaded and occupied an independent Kurdish region in Syria, at their international summit in Istanbul last year.

When All Is Said And Done, The World Will Not Mourn The American Empire's Demise

As I was putting the finishing touches on my new book, the Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute published an estimate of the taxpayer dollars that will have gone into America’s war on terror from September 12, 2001, through fiscal year 2018. That figure: a cool $5.6 trillion (including the future costs of caring for our war vets).

On average, that’s at least $23,386 per taxpayer.

Keep in mind that such figures, however eye-popping, are only the dollar costs of our wars. They don’t, for instance, include the psychic costs to the Americans mangled in one way or another in those never-ending conflicts. They don’t include the costs to this country’s infrastructure, which has been crumbling while taxpayer dollars flow copiously and in a remarkably -- in these years, almost uniquely -- bipartisan fashion into what’s still laughably called “national security.” That’s not, of course, what would make most of us more secure, but what would make them -- the denizens of the national security state -- ever more secure in Washington and elsewhere. We’re talking about the Pentagon, the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. nuclear complex, and the rest of that state-within-a-state, including its many intelligence agencies and the warrior corporations that have, by now, been fused into that vast and vastly profitable interlocking structure.

In reality, the costs of America’s wars, still spreading in the Trump era, are incalculable. Just look at photos of the cities of Ramadi or Mosul in Iraq, Raqqa or Aleppo in Syria, Sirte in Libya, or Marawi in the southern Philippines, all in ruins in the wake of the conflicts Washington set off in the post–9/11 years, and try to put a price on them. Those views of mile upon mile of rubble, often without a building still standing untouched, should take anyone’s breath away. Some of those cities may never be fully rebuilt.

And how could you even begin to put a dollars-and-cents value on the larger human costs of those wars: the hundreds of thousands of dead? The tens of millions of people displaced in their own countries or sent as refugees fleeing across any border in sight? How could you factor in the way those masses of uprooted peoples of the Greater Middle East and Africa are unsettling other parts of the planet? Their presence (or more accurately a growing fear of it) has, for instance, helped fuel an expanding set of right-wing “populist” movements that threaten to tear Europe apart. And who could forget the role that those refugees -- or at least fantasy versions of them -- played in Donald Trump’s full-throated, successful pitch for the presidency? What, in the end, might be the cost of that?

America’s never-ending twenty-first-century conflicts were triggered by the decision of George W. Bush and his top officials to instantly define their response to attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center by a tiny group of jihadis as a “war”; then to proclaim it nothing short of a “Global War on Terror”; and finally to invade and occupy first Afghanistan and then Iraq, with dreams of dominating the Greater Middle East -- and ultimately the planet -- as no other imperial power had ever done.

Trade War: After Cuttings Off US Soybean Purchases, China Increases Soybean Purchases From Russia

China has purchased record amounts of soybeans from Russia in recent months amid trade tensions with the U.S., Bloomberg reported.

The world's biggest soybean importer, China has nearly tripled its imports from Russia, according to Bloomberg. Russian trade data show the country sold 850,000 metric tons of soybeans to China between July 2017 and mid-May this year.

The record sales represent more than twice the 340,000 tons sold during the previous growing period.

The move comes amid China's halt on purchases from the U.S., the world's largest producer of soybeans.

China has cancelled multiple U.S. shipments in recent weeks ahead of tariffs, including a 62,690-ton purchase on April 19, Bloomberg reported earlier this month.

China included soybeans on a list of tariffs on U.S. products last month totaling $50 billion, a direct response to the Trump administration's announcement of $150 billion of tariffs against Chinese imports.

China is the second-largest market for U.S. agricultural exports.

While Russia's soybean production makes up less than 1 percent of the amount China imports, the size of soybean plantings in eastern Russia could reportedly expand up to 20 percent in the next two to three years.

Colorado City's Police State Intends To Prosecute Homeless Victims

A Colorado city council has approved an ordinance that prohibits anyone from sitting or lying down on downtown sidewalks, curbs and other public areas.

Anyone who violates the ordinance, which goes into effect this summer in Durango City, will face fines of up $200

Critics claim the move represents an attack on the homeless.

RT reports: https://archive.fo/V5tPq

The move is seen by some as an effort to try and clean up the downtown area and make it safer for residents. Business owners and councilors in particular were in favor of the motion.

“People can stand with a sign on Main Avenue all day long and they are absolutely within their First Amendment rights,” Councillor Dick White said. “I think this is achieving what we are trying to achieve,” he added.

Critics argued that it was an attack on homeless people and beggars and that it wouldn’t solve the city’s homeless problem.

Many social media users also slammed the new law.

Very sad for the people of Durango who are working to criminalize homelessness instead of end it https://t.co/FrgmFwzyGS

— Micah Snead (@sneadish) May 17, 2018

Extremely poor people should all be ashamed of themselves for sleeping on sidewalks. Granted, sidewalks do look comfy. Thankfully Durango City Council had the Christian love to criminalize extreme poverty. Why don’t they get nice houses like decent people?

— Colt ✞ (@Colttech) May 17, 2018

I am always proud to be a Durangatan . . . but maybe less so today. These kind of “out of sight, out of mind” policies are clearly aimed at indegncy, and are not the right solution: Durango City Council bans sitting, lying on sidewalks https://t.co/E2qBbguUsf

— Conor J. May (@Conor_J_May) May 17, 2018

However, the ordinance does not apply to people in the midst of a medical emergency, people with disabilities, parade and festival-goers, children in strollers and performers at special events.

School Shooting Avoided, Armed Resource Officer Shoots Armed Former Student

A good guy with a gun intervened Wednesday morning and shot an alleged gunman at Illinois’s Dixon High School.

WRAL reports that the alleged gunman was spotted on school property around 8 am. He was confronted by an armed resource officer and Dixon city manager Danny Langloss said the alleged gunman fired at the officer. The officer returned fire, striking the alleged gunman.

The alleged gunman suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was placed under arrest.

The identity of the suspect has not been revealed but SaukValley.com reports that he is a “19-year-old former student.”

Langross summarized the morning, saying, “We’re lucky the officer was there. His brave actions saved a lot of lives.”

On March 20, 2018, Breitbart News reported that an armed resource officer shot at an armed attacker at Maryland’s Great Mills High School. The attacker was able to kill one person, but could have killed numerous others apart from the intervention of a good guy with a gun.

De-dollarization Escalates As EU To Ditch Dollar In Payments For Iranian Oil

The dollar’s collapse is nearing. The European Union is planning to switch it’s payments to the Euro for its oil purchases from Iran, eliminating United States dollar transactions.

Just one more nail to the US dollar’s coffin. Its collapse is all but imminent at this point. The EU has successfully found a way to scoff at potential future sanctions on Iran by openly defying the US; and as an “added bonus,” they’ve helped seal the dollar’s fate. According to RT, a diplomatic source with the EU has told a news outlet of the decision.

“I’m privy to the information that the EU is going to shift from dollar to euro to pay for crude from Iran,” said the diplomatic source.

Brussels has been at odds with Washington over the US’s decision to withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, which was reached during the administration of Barack Obama. President Donald Trump has pledged to re-impose sanctions against the Islamic Republic as soon as he is able to do so. The Trump administration also has had plans to topple the current regime in Iran, according to leaked documents, and it looks like they’ve just given themselves the go-ahead:

The Washington Free Beacon has obtained a three-page white paper being circulated among National Security Council officials with drafted plans tospark regime change in Iran, following the US exit from the Obama-era nuclear deal and the re-imposition of tough sanctions aimed at toppling the Iranian regime.

The plan, authored by the Security Studies Group, or SSG, a national security think-tank that has close ties to senior White House national security officials, including – who else – National Security Adviser John Bolton, seeks to reshape longstanding American foreign policy toward Iran by emphasizing an explicit policy of regime change, something the Obama administration opposed when popular protests gripped Iran in 2009, writes the Free Beacon, which obtained a leaked copy of the circulating plans. – Zerohedge

However, it in the process, it is highly likely that the US dollar will collapse as nations distance themselves from the United States’ often disastrous foreign policies. As RT reported, dozens of contracts signed between European businesses and the Islamic Republic could be at risk of cancellation if Brussels obeys Washington’s sanctions. This would damage Iran’s economy and European firms would lose a huge market in the Middle East. Switching to alternative settlement currencies allows both sides to continue trading despite US sanctions and will damage the dollar in the process.

Earlier this week, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the foreign ministers of the UK, France, Germany, and Iran had agreed to work out practical solutions in response to Washington’s move in the next few weeks. The bloc is reportedly planning to maintain and deepen economic ties with Iran, including in the area of oil and gas supplies.

Around San Diego County, a hot, salty, buttered controversy has popped up.

Should hardware stores offer free bags of freshly-popped popcorn? If they desired to do so, they once could.

Not anymore. Last month, communist inspectors raided La Jolla’s Meanley & Son Hardware, warning that its old-fashioned red popcorn machine is now outlawed.

“They explained we didn’t have the proper permits,” said Bob Meanley, whose shop had handed out 30 to 40 bags every day for about 25 years.

To comply with the 1984 California Uniform Retail Food Facility Law, Meanley & Son would need to install a three-basin sink to clean and sterilize the popcorn popper. Also required: regular inspections, just like a restaurant.

Meanley declined and instead rolled the offending machine into storage. Thus ended a tradition he had started 25 years ago.

“I hate to take away something that our customers really like,” said Meanley, whose grandparents founded the hardware store in 1948. “On the other hand, this whole thing has made me more aware of our liability.”

While closely associated with movie theaters, popcorn is also tightly linked to neighborhood purveyors of hammers and screwdrivers. The connection is seen in shops from Cambridge, Mass. (Tags Ace Hardware) to Lakeside (Payton’s True Value Hardware).

“The little kids get a kick out of it,” said Dianne El-Hajj, co-owner of Payton’s, where the free treat has been a staple since 1997. “They come in for the popcorn and dad comes in for the tools.”

The county Department of Environmental Health, for its part, has a long tradition of cracking down on these scofflaws. Three years ago, inspectors cited Encinitas’ Crown Ace Hardware and San Carlos True Value Hardware.

“The Health Department came in,” said San Carlos True Value manager Danielle Matheny, “and told us if we wanted to continue giving away free popcorn and coffee we’d have to install a bigger vent system, a bigger and better sink in the break room — a lot of rules and restrictions they put on us.”

“I feel sad,” she said, “that some of the old traditions we have become so regulated.”

Youtube Alternative, Real.Video, Ready To Launch Within 60 Days

RELATED:
https://archive.fo/fuIkM (Get Ready For A Youtube Alternative For Conservatives)
https://archive.fo/Sh6wr (New Youtube Platform For Conservatives Announced, Real.Video)

REAL.video is launching in less than 60 days. It’s a free “YouTube alternative” that protects free speech and provides video content creators with a platform to participate in news, conversations and public debate. Notably, YouTube, Google, Facebook and Twitter are now aggressively banning all conservative speech, somehow believing that “diversity” is achieved through the censorship of opposing views.

REAL.video is a robust video platform that’s free for everyone to use. We have committed over $1 million to this project so far, and it’s being built on a video infrastructure that can readily support over one billion video views per month. Users will be able to embed video players on their blogs and websites, and videos play seamlessly across multiple mobile devices and platforms due to dynamic bit-rate video delivery and intelligent video transcoding.

Just like with YouTube, you will be able to upload videos, manage videos, share videos, see how many views and likes they’re getting and more. (Video sharing will start out with more traditional shares such as FB, but we are quickly moving it over to GAB, Diaspora and other alternative share sites.) Video comments are also supported on each play page. But unlike YouTube, REAL.video does not spy on its users. There’s no tracking of user video views, search terms or other metrics. All users view all videos anonymously.

Video content creators who will be using REAL.video include Next News Network, the Grow Network (a food channel), InfoWars, SGT Report, Pete Santilli, Natural News, The Gateway Pundit and literally thousands of others. We are only activating a few hundred content channels on launch day in order to test the robustness of the system, but before the end of July, we plan to have thousands of channels active. (NOTE: If you find any of the people or organizations listed above to be controversial, launch your own channel and straighten us all out!)

Watch my video here for full details about the launch of REAL.video, and visit REAL.video now to request a video content channel. (We will start approving and opening channels for video uploads starting mid-June.)

https://gcs-vimeo.akamaized.net/exp=1526515129~acl=*%2F998194115.mp4*~hmac=d440a88ff4e359e93a99de8b7f564900d25b3995509d169b6a34154734806f4f/vimeo-prod-skyfire-std-us/01/3806/10/269032927/998194115.mp4

REAL.video doesn’t pay video content creators based on views, but an entire e-commerce store called “Shop.Real.Video” will be launched with the system, and all content creators can easily opt-in to the e-commerce back-end to earn affiliate revenues on purchases of the products we offer, ranging from nutrition and superfoods to preparedness gear. When you opt in, a “shop now” button appears below your videos, and all clicks through that button earn you affiliate revenues on all purchases, without exception.

Launching with this program is some new gear, including a new combat knife, an anti-radiation water filter, a new organic storable food meal kit and much more. We are also actively seeking to partner with other gear providers to carry their products in our ever-expanding store. (If you are a product manufacturer, reach out to us via the advertising email contact on REAL.video.)

This is all supported by a massive new e-commerce fulfillment infrastructure we’ve built over the last two years, with a new, climate-controlled warehouse, new offices, a huge e-commerce software upgrade and new fulfillment lines that can now handle 400% greater order fulfillment capacity than what we were previously limited to.

Feel The Bern? Californians Six Times More Likely To Have STD Than Rest Of US

Californians are six times more likely to be infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) than average Americans, according to medical data, while public health officials warn the state is struggling to contain an “unprecedented and shameful public health disaster” that is threatening to spill over into the rest of the country.

Officials say the state is battling a “perfect storm” of factors that have allowed STDs to incubate and spread at epidemic levels. California Gov. Jerry Brown’s “disastrous” and “dangerous” sex education classes at schools, combined with poor quality policies regarding the state’s problems with poverty, substance abuse, mental health issues and homelessness, have all played a role.

California reached a record high in the number of sexually transmitted disease cases last year, with the state seeing an unprecedented 45 percent spike in the number of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis cases over the past five years.

According to the state report, officials are most concerned about the huge increase in the number of stillbirths due to congenital syphilis.

Senate Votes to Restore FCC Net Neutrality Rules

WASHINGTON — A resolution to restore the FCC’s net neutrality rules passed the Senate on Wednesday, giving Democrats a victory on what they see as a potent issue going into the 2018 midterms.

The Senate voted 52-47 on the resolution. Three Republicans joined with Democrats — Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

If it is ultimately passed by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump — a big if — the net neutrality rules that the FCC had in place since 2015 would be restored. The agency’s Republican majority voted late last year to repeal them.

“We consider this one of the major issues of the 2018 campaign,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters after the vote. Although net neutrality has been an issue largely fought among lobbyists, policy wonks and activists, Schumer said it will resonate because “people understand cable and the problems with it, and they don’t want the internet to become cable.”

In December, the FCC voted 3-2 to roll back many of the existing net neutrality rules, including those prohibiting internet service providers from blocking or throttling of content, or from selling so-called “fast lanes” for speedier access to consumers.

The repeal goes into effect on June 11.

Good! Italy’s New Coalition Vows To Leave Modern Soviet Union

Italy’s new conservative coalition has plans to pull the country out of the European Union and form closer ties with the United States and Russia, according to a leaked report that has sent shockwaves through Europe.

The explosive manifesto, entitled Government for Change, reveals plans for Italy to leave the crumbling EU, as well as controversially calling for closer ties with Russia and demands to be released from the European Central Bank’s financial shackles.

The 39-page document emerged as Italy’s political deadlock looks set to continue with Forza Italia leader Silvio Berlusconi refusing to stand aside to let his anti-EU election allies Lega form an anti-EU government with anti-establishment party 5Star Movement.

The Express reports: https://archive.fo/XvmgL

President Sergio Mattarella has demanded action after a third inconclusive round of coalition talks and warned party leaders to find an agreement, accept a “neutral government” or go to the polls all over again.

However pundits believe the nationalist parties Lega and 5Star Movement are likely to form a coalition and form a conservative government, clearing the path for Italy to reject the European Union and its globalist agenda and throwing it’s weight behind Russia and President Putin’s respect for national sovereignty.

The joint Government for Change programme appears to show plenty of common ground between Lega and 5Star Movement and is signed by their respective leaders Matteo Salvini and Luigi Di Maio.

The leaked report makes pleasant reading for anyone who is against the globalist agenda. It appears Italy is about to follow Britain out of the European Union. The report demands radical change in Italy’s relationship wth Brussels with “a need to revise EU treaties” and to “re-discuss the Italian contribution to the EU”.

On the international front, the new nationalist coalition in Italy would consider the US, a “privileged ally”, while at the same time establishing “the opening to Russia, to be perceived not as a threat, but as an economic and commercial partner”.

During the election campaign Lega promised “the immediate withdrawal of sanctions imposed on Russia” and the rehabilitation of Moscow as a “strategic interlocutor” in crisis areas such as Syria, Libya and Yemen.

On public finance, Mr Salvini and Mr Di Maio resolve to ask European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi to cancel the £250 billion government bonds it owed.

According to the Express, the parties have issued a joint statement insisting the report is a draft that is subject to change and contains many proposals that had been amended.

However the general direction of the new powers in Italian politics — pulling themselves out of the European Union and the crippling shackles of the European Central Bank — must be applauded. The future of Europe is looking brighter.

Federal Court Grills Robert Mueller For Indicting A Company That Did Not Even Exist During 2016 Election

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been slammed in a federal court for trying to indict a company that doesn’t exist, as part of his phony Russian witch-hunt.

Last week, Mueller’s team showed up in the District Court for the District of Columbia for the arraignment of two alleged “internet troll farm” companies that his team says Russia used to influence the 2016 election.

Bigleaguepolitics.com reports: https://archive.fo/sUu4w

“So the purpose of this proceeding is to conduct an initial appearance and arraignment with respect to, I see, one of the defendants in the case, Concord Management and Consulting, LLC,” said Judge G. Michael Harvey, according to court transcripts.

The Judge continued, asking the attorney for Concord Management if a company called Concord Catering was associated with the organization, and was going to be arraigned. Concord Catering was listed in the federal government’s indictment.

“[It] is not,” said Eric A. Dubelier, counsel for Concord Management. “And the reason for that, Your Honor, is I think we’re dealing with a situation of the government having indicted the proverbial ham sandwich.”

“That company didn’t exist as a legal entity during the time period alleged by the government,” Dubelier said.

This is the latest in a series of fumbles by the Mueller team.

Big League Politics reported last week that a federal judge harshly rebuked the special prosecutor’s team for only wanting to impeach Trump instead of investigating his alleged “collusion” honestly. Mueller also worked closely with long-time Trump foe Eric Schneiderman, the disgraced former New York Attorney General, in investigating Paul Manafort.

Pressure is also mounting as questions arise about the funding of the Mueller investigation, who is paying for opposition research against Trump, and how that information is being leaked to the media.

May 14 was the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s appointment as special counsel, and so far indictments from the wide-ranging and unfettered investigation pertain only to Trump associates, and only for alleged crimes unrelated to “collusion” with the Russian government.

But at least those indictments were brought against people who actually exist.

Mueller’s latest blunder underscores the feelings of many Americans, and of Trump himself – that the special counsel investigation is simply a Democrat-funded stunt to cast shade on what has so far been an extremely impressive Trump presidency.

Illinois' Police State Threatens To Euthanize Police Dogs If Marijuana Is Legalized

An Illinois county official has threatened that if marijuana is legalized — a move favored by 66% of Prairie State citizens — they will euthanize all dogs trained to identify the drug.

Chad Larner, who heads training at the K-9 Training Academy in Macon, reportedly made the comments to the Bloomington Pantagraph.

Larner reportedly told the paper that retraining the dogs would likely lead to “extreme abuse.”

“The biggest thing for law enforcement is, you’re going to have to replace all of your dogs,” Macon County Sheriff Howard Buffett told the paper. “So to me, it’s a giant step forward for drug dealers, and it’s a giant step backwards for law enforcement and the residents of the community.“

Buffett told the paper that law enforcement would likely have to replace all of its dogs.

Fox reports: https://archive.fo/w97kH

Illinois lawmakers are considering a proposal that would expand the use of medical marijuana to fight the state’s opioid crisis and make Illinois the 10th state to legalize the drug. The Senate bill would allow individuals who qualify for opioid prescriptions to apply for the state’s medical cannabis program, the Southern Illinoisan reported .

The proposal would create a pilot program where patients can take a physician certification to a dispensary to receive medical marijuana. Dispensaries would have to verify the certification and be required to dispense medical cannabis in set amounts tied to the recommended duration of the opioid prescription.

The bill overwhelmingly passed in the Senate. The Illinois House Rules Committee has now been asked to review the legislation. A recent poll showed that 66 percent of the state’s residents support the move.

No Longer Conspiracy Goyim: Chinese Government Announces Plans To Geo-engineer and Control Weather

RELATED: http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/links-to-geoengineering-patents/

IT has the money. It has the manpower. It has the political will.

China is setting forth to change the weather.

According to Chinese media, the state-owned Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation of China has begun to turn just such a plan into reality.

It’s starting work on producing thousands of rainmaking machines. These will be scattered across the Himalayan Tibetan Plateau.

Each machine is supposed to be able to seed the sky in such a way as to produce a 5km-long storm-cloud on-demand. Put together, the weather-making array is intended to irrigate 1.6 million square kilometres with 10 billion cubic centimetres of water each year. That’s about the size of New South Wales and Victoria combined.

They’ve done it before, on a smaller scale.

For the 2008 Beijing Olympics, $40 million was spent firing chemical pellets into the clouds. This compelled the clouds to rain early, before they could burst above the games.

Now, Beijing is upscaling the idea. Enormously.

The project involves activating pre-positioned machines to project a fine dust of silver iodide into the sky. The machines are positioned next to known updrafts, lifting the particles high into the atmosphere.

Once among the more humid air currents, the fine grains cause water to condense about themselves. Thus raindrops are seeded. And clouds form where there would have been none.

The motive? Climate change is bringing reduced rainfalls to vital cropland.

For the same reason, some 52 countries are exploring similar technologies. But none on a scale remotely approaching that of this new Chinese project.

But such a project is likely to have fallout.

Particularly, much of the rain which would once have fallen on Pakistan, India and Nepal may no longer get so far.

Catholic Nuns Arrested For Torturing 60 Children In Columbia

Two Catholic nuns have been arrested for torturing at least 60 children under their care at a home in Colombia.

It has been alleged all that the nuns burnt the children’s skin and shoved their faces in toilets at the home which has been nicknamed the hell house by neighbors and local media.

Newsweek reports: https://archive.fo/YslcD

Sor Ines Perez and Rosa Elivra Trochez Joagui ran the Santa Clara Rebirth Home in the southwest Colombian city of Popayan. According to authorities, children in their care were repeatedly burned on their hands and had their heads shoved in toilets as a form of punishment. Authorities began an investigation after neighbors heard the children screaming and called police, according to El Tiempo.

Both nuns have denied the charges of aggravated torture, with the alleged crimes dating between 2014 and 2017. The scores of children who lived at the home have all been relocated to other welfare sites, according to the country’s Office of Attorney General.

According to El Tiempo, the nuns’ organization had already been closed once before, but had been allowed to reopen. In a statement to the paper, Perez said conditions at the home were exacerbated by the inadequate resources provided by the Colombian Institute of Family Well-Being (ICBF), a public youth welfare agency. The ICBF did not immediately return Newsweek’s request for comment.

TYRANNY Continues: British Citizens Now Face Jail If They Post ‘Offensive’ Content Online

British citizens can now face up to six months in jail if they post ‘offensive’ content on social media, under Orwellian new rules proposed by the government.

Despite the fact that violent crime rates have skyrocketed 44% in the last year, the government want police to focus their resources on punishing ‘online trolls’:

Social media users who share or comment on racist or anti-gay postings will face jail under rules proposed yesterday.

Advice for judges and magistrates recommends harsh punishments for those found guilty of stirring up hatred against racial, religious or sexual minority groups.

Among those jailed should be people who post comments or share online hate speech because they have been reckless as to whether they stir up hatred, say the proposals from the Sentencing Council.

Those found guilty of hate trolling by commenting or sharing social media should typically receive a sentence of six months in jail.

Informationliberation.com reports: https://archive.fo/2qJU1

“Hate trolling” means sharing politically incorrect facts. The lunatic leftists controlling Britain want to throw right-wingers in prison for 6 months not just for posting such “hate,” but for merely commenting on it or sharing it.Anyone who is convicted of orginating hate speech that threatens anyone’s life or which is widely distributed should expect three years.

Even someone whose words or material were judged as hateful, but were not considered to have threatened life or reached a big audience, is likely to be punished with a year in jail.

[…]The council’s proposals say the most serious hate offences include speeches given by public figures with the aim of stirring up hatred, online content inciting violence towards racial or religious groups, and websites that publish abusive and insulting material to a worldwide audience over a long period.

Aggravating factors include activity ‘in a particularly sensitive social climate’ or delivered to an impressionable audience.

Using multiple social media platforms also makes an offence more grave.

Police State USSA: 2-Year-Old Kidnapped From Veteran Father Because He Used Cannabis To Treat His PTSD

A LESSON TO LEARN: NEVER TALK OR LET "SOCIAL WORKERS" INTO YOUR HOME, EVER! MAKE THEM GET A WARRANT BEFORE A COURT! TYPICALLY THEY MUST LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE IF THEY CAN'T PIN ANYTHING ON THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!

A 2-year-old girl from Idaho has been snatched from her parents after authorities discovered her father used cannabis to treat his PTSD.

On March 22nd, the Thomas Family of Eagle, Idaho, had their lives torn apart by Child Protective Services.

Medicalkidnap.com reports: https://archive.fo/ZyiyX

Edward Thomas is a 29-year-old, Iraq Veteran of the Army National Guard. He spent a year stationed within a combat zone in Baghdad and suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) caused by what he witnessed during that time.

As we have reported many times here at Health Impact News, military people suffering from PTSD are almost always prescribed a strong cocktail of psych drugs with toxic side effects, and in the U.S. military, vets are committing suicide at a high rate, as we lose more vets to suicide than we do to combat.

Edward Thomas also suffers from a small benign tumor in his brain that has caused several epileptic episodes in the past.

Edward currently works as a customer service representative in Boise, Idaho, to provide for his small family, including his wife of six years, Ashley, and 2-year-old daughter, Zoey. Edward and Ashley are also currently expecting their second daughter, Scarlet, due to arrive June 22nd, 2018.

Ashley is a 27-year-old, disabled mother, that suffers from scoliosis, heart issues, as well as chronic depression and Bipolar disorder.

Both Edward and Ashley have found relief from their suffering due to their various conditions, through the use of medical cannabis.

Edward says:

It helps with my nightmares and insomnia caused by my time overseas. I used to wake up in a panic from dreams that I was killed in an explosion or seeing my family killed in one. It helped me stop taking several pills for depression and anxiety, and even helps with my chronic pain.

Obama's IRS Found Guilty of Politically Targeting Conservatives, Victims Compensated Millions $$$

Hundreds of conservative groups that were unfairly targeted by Obama’s IRS have been awarded $3.5 million settlement by a U.S. District judge who agreed they had been illegally targeted by the former administration for political reasons.

U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett ruled that the IRS, quite possibly the most feared agency in the federal government, was misused by the Obama administration to unfairly target citizens for holding peaceful political views.

The groundbreaking settlement proves Barack Obama was lying through his teeth when he told former Fox host Bill O’Reilly that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the targeting of conservatives by his IRS.

Unsurprisingly, mainstream media has ordered a complete blackout of this story and has gone into damage control mode to protect Barack Obama’s supposedly “scandal-free” presidency.

Judge Michael Barrett set a July 10 hearing in Cincinnati on making the settlement final, and scheduled deadlines for claims and objections.

The Justice Department had announced last year that the case had been settled, pending approval of terms.

The lead plaintiff was the California-based Norcal Tea Party Patriots. The case swelled into a class-action suit by hundreds of groups. The court will decide how much each gets after legal costs.

AP reports: https://archive.fo/5P7ZF

The 2013 lawsuit during the Barack Obama administration was over the treatment of conservative groups who said they were singled out for extra IRS scrutiny on tax-exempt status applications.

Watch Barack Obama lie through his teeth while telling former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the targeting of conservatives by his IRS: https://hooktube.com/watch?v=GUtDFDU4kMk

“These are groups of law-abiding citizens who should have never had their First Amendment rights infringed upon by the IRS,” Jenny Beth Martin, president of the Tea Party Patriots umbrella group, said Wednesday. “These are groups that want the government to be accountable.”

The Justice Department declined comment.

Republican President Donald Trump’s Justice Department also settled a second lawsuit with an apology from the IRS for the intensive scrutiny of the groups, which argued their constitutional rights were violated when they were singled out based on their political views.

The case hounded Obama’s Democratic administration, with many Republicans disappointed there wasn’t stronger action taken in the scandal.

George Soros’ Open Society Foundation Closes Operations In Hungary

George Soros’ Open Society Foundations has been forced to end its operations in Hungary, accusing Budapest of repressing civil society.

President of the Open Society Foundations Patrick Gaspard lashed out at Budapest, saying it has “denigrated and misrepresented our work,” while repressing civil society “for the sake of political gain.”

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has repeatedly slammed the billionaire globalist for meddling in the nation’s internal affairs.

Sputnik News reports: https://archive.fo/nWHXf

According to reports, George Soros’ Open Society Foundations will close their office in the Hungarian capital and move to Berlin.

“The government of Hungary has denigrated and misrepresented our work and repressed civil society for the sake of political gain, using tactics unprecedented in the history of the European Union,” Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations, said.

Hungary is one of the most anti-immigrant EU member-states and has constantly clashed with the European Union over their contrasting stances on tackling the migrant crisis.

The Hungarian government has been pushing to adopt the so-called “Stop Soros Act,” which would allow banning activities of pro-immigration policies in Hungary. The bill was submitted to parliament in February.

In addition to supporting pro-immigrant causes, the billionaire has also donated funds to pro-EU groups, such as the Best for Britain group, which is campaigning against Brexit.

In what is now being described as the "most direct confrontation between Israel and Iran in decades," Israel exchanged fire with Syrian and Iranian forces during a late-night showdown that ended early Thursday morning.

The exchange came days after Israel called up reserve troops to the Golan Heights, the disputed border region.

It also followed by less than two days President Trump's decision to pull the US out of the Iran deal. Trump said Tuesday that the US would swiftly reimpose economic sanctions on Iran that had been lifted following the 2015 agreement.

According to Syrian media, some 28 Israeli aircraft fired around 60 air-to-surface missiles at Syria during the exchange. Iranian lawmakers have denied the IDF's claims that Iranian forces in Syria provoked Israel by firing on their positions in the Golan Heights border area.

Israel also launched roughly 10 surface-to-surface missiles, which struck military targets near Damascus and in Southern Syria, according to the Russian military.

Police State USSA: 12 Yr Old Kid Handcuffed, Arrested For Playing With Imaginary Gun At School

Schools across the US are relying more and more on the police to enforce pupils into compliance instead of training staff and using common sense.

Earlier this week a 5th grade autistic boy from Texas was arrested for a non-existent crime of “brandishing an imaginary rifle.”

12-year-old David Sims who attends Conroe Independent School District’s Bozman Intermediate school, was handcuffed and dragged away by police and charged for pretending his hand was a gun.

The Free Thought Project reports: https://archive.fo/0OCPh

The boy’s actions apparently threatened his art teacher who then called the police.

“She (CISD Police Officer) just put handcuffs on me and told me I need to go with her,” David told Fox 26.

“They just said, ‘We don’t tolerate that. We take it as a threat.’ A threat? He didn’t threaten anyone. He didn’t do anything but play,” said Amy Sims, David’s mother.

Sims explained that she was never notified of her son’s arrest until after he’d been booked. Sims noted that like many kids with autism, her son doesn’t understand that playing make believe guns on campus has become inappropriate behavior.

“Being put in handcuffs, not knowing what he did wrong, I could have had a talk with him and told him look, I know you like to play guns, but you can’t do it in school,” said Amy Sims.

Indeed, that is all that should have happened. However, this little boy is now facing criminal charges instead.

China Promises To Protect Iran Nuclear Program, Iran To Increase Nuclear Production, US Protests

In the aftermath of Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, the emerging geopolitical axes - at least when it comes to the ongoing global proxy conflict involving Syria/Iran/Israel/Saudi Arabia, i.e. the Middle East - has made some notable changes.

On one hand, there is the core axis of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar, all of which are jousting for dominance with Iran, are eager to see the Iranian government and economy crash and burn (in some cases, literally) and have and will vocally back any move out of Washington that is adverse to Iran/Syria.

On the other hand, there is Russia which has firmly backed both the Iran and Syrian regimes, while also providing weapons and supplies to the two financially-strapped governments.

In the middle is Europe: unwilling to side with Trump and abrogate the Iran nuclear deal - after all, Europe gets much of its oil imports courtesy of Tehran while many European countries are currently branching out in Iran in hopes of finding more marginal clients, yet also unwilling to formally back Rouhani/Assad whom Trump has branded "terrorist."

But what about the biggest and arguably most important emerging superpower, China, which until recently had held a very low profile when it comes to Iran? Well, overnight, perhaps prompted by the ongoing trade war with the US, Beijing decided there is no longer a need to stay mute, and as Xinhua reported, voiced regret over President Donald Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal and vowed to "safeguard" the agreement.

"China regrets this decision made by the US," foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said during a press briefing on Wednesday. Geng said China will maintain "normal economic and trade exchanges" with Iran despite Trump's decision to withdraw from the 2015 accord and reimpose sanctions on Tehran.

"China will take an objective, fair and responsible attitude, maintain dialogues and consultations with all parties, and continue to work to maintain and implement the comprehensive agreement," he said.

Then, adopting a more forceful tone, Geng said that "China calls on all relevant parties to assume a responsible attitude" in order "to return at an early date to the right track of implementing the deal," and reiterated Beijing's opposition to unilateral sanctions and "long-arm jurisdiction."

Meanwhile, not directly linked to the Iran deal, China said that trade talks are continuing, and urged the U.S. to withdraw its trade threats as it confirmed that negotiators continue to talk before President Xi Jinping’s top economic adviser returns to Washington.

We now look forward to China deploying troops and military equipment to Syria and Iran as the inevitable next step in this escalating global proxy war.

Iran says it is ready to restart its nuclear program on an "industrial scale" in the wake of the decision by US President Donald Trump to abandon the deal that curbs the country's nuclear ambitions.

In a statement published Friday, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said he would embark on a round of international diplomacy to try and save the deal. At the same time, the country would make preparations to restart its program of nuclear enrichment, he said.

Zarif's comments came as thousands of Iranians took to the streets in the largest demonstration since US President Donald Trump announced his decision to abandon the deal on Tuesday.

Protesters burned an American flag and railed against the US and Israel after emerging from Friday prayers in Tehran.

In his statement, Zarif accused Trump of "ignorance and folly" and said American foreign policy had "dragged the Middle East into chaos."

He said Iran would attempt to save the nuclear deal through negotiations with the European nations who were co-signatories to the deal. Zarif will meet with his counterparts from Germany, France and the UK in Brussels on Tuesday.

Commiefornia Seeks To Mandate Amazon Third Party Spying In All New Homes

Amazon’s Alexa is to be installed in newly built homes across California, with or without the owners permission, according to controversial new plans.

The nation’s largest home builder, Lennar, announced the ‘mandatory’ installation of Alexa units last Wednesday, arguing that the voice-activated digital assistant will make things such as switching a light on or off “much easier.”

If you want any sense of privacy, don't purchase these new homes [or better yet, move out of this tyrannical communist state!]

Usatoday.com reports: https://archive.fo/vY7Tt

Each house will come with two Alexa-enabled smart speakers, an Echo Show and an Echo Dot. New homeowners will also get a free visit from an Amazon technician to help set everything up and teach them how to use it.

“This will be the hallmark of why we buy a new home,” said David Kaiserman, president of Lennar Ventures. “It’s an important step in the mass adoption of all these technologies.”

No other major builder has folded this still-evolving technology into all its homes. The announcement marks a major play to get what is still something of a cool, but not vital, technology into a broad swath of American homes.

It comes as Amazon, Google and Apple fight for market share in the smart speaker category. In 2018, about 18% of Americans will use a smart speaker at least once a month, digital marketing firm eMarketer found. Amazon holds 66.6% of the market and Google 29.5%. [This is what a State-run economy looks like folks!] Homeowners will be giving away even more information to tech companies and the US Govt about their daily habits.

But Reynolds, who focuses on the condo market right around Amazon headquarters, says he’s not seeing demand for smart homes but thinks it will come soon.

He compared it to the increasingly common practice of builders putting charging stations for electric cars in garages.

Mormons to End Long Association with Boy Scouts of America After Caving To Feminist Loonies

The Mormon church announced Tuesday it will sever a more than century-old tie with the Boy Scouts of America and transfer its remaining 425,000 boys in the program into a gospel-focused youth group it is developing.

The church’s announcement follows the Boy Scouts’ unprecedented decision in 2015 to allow gay troop leaders and last year, to allow girls in its ranks – both seemingly at odds with the conservative beliefs of the Mormon church.

Last week the BSA announced it will drop the word "Boys" from its name to reflect the inclusion of girls.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints initially said it was "deeply troubled" by the Boy Scouts' policy change on gays but stayed with the organization after receiving assurances it could appoint troop leaders in accordance with its own religious and moral values.

After the official separaration, slated for Dec. 31, 2019, the Mormon church will create its own gospel-based youth program, FOX 13 reported.

In a statement the church said its new youth program will "help all girls and boys, young women and young men discover their eternal identity, build character and resilience, develop life skills and fulfill their divine roles as daughters and sons of God."

Lawyers for Russian company Concord Management and Consulting, LLC, formally entered a “not guilty” plea in federal court Monday in a case special counsel Robert Mueller probably never thought would happen.

Mueller, weathering significant criticism that his Russian collusion case was thin, unveiled a grandiose indictment Feb. 16 against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies. The 13 Russians in question were charged with waging “information warfare” in the United States, interfering with the 2016 presidential election, and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

Mueller generated headlines with the February indictment, safe in the knowledge the 13 Russians were beyond U.S. jurisdiction. Therefore, there would be no trial — only sensational Russian collusion accusations.

Mueller may now have to try the case, and Concord’s lawyers have put the special counsel on notice. The Russian company’s lawyers intend to invoke “discovery” to obtain U.S. intelligence about what they knew of Russian activities.

“I guess Mueller thought it was a freebie, for sure,” former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy told The Daily Caller News Foundation after the court proceeding.

“He thought it could make this association (of Russian collusion) and it would never be challenged in court,” McCarthy, also a National Review contributing editor, said.

Concord retained the services of two attorneys at mega law firm Reed Smith, and the company is demanding a speedy trial. The lawyers indicated they were going to exercise Concord’s rights under discovery to examine all of Mueller’s “evidence” of the conspiracy.

New Jersey Housing Developer Faces Class-action Lawsuit Over Threats To Evict Gun Owners

Another “nobody is trying to take your guns” success story. It has come to our attention that a housing development group called RPM Development Group is prohibiting their tenants from owning firearms. You have two choices: keep your gun(s) or become homeless. A new low for the anti-gun bigots!

While Mom’s Demand Action claims that “nobody wants to take your guns away,” one common theme keeps happening: our guns are being taken away either by usurpation or now by being barred from having them in our rental apartments. Despite the fact that the Supreme Court's Heller decision states that we have a constitutional right to own and bear firearms in our homes, RPM Development Group believes they are immune.

We were made aware that this sign was posted at RPM’s Richardson Lofts at 50 Columbia Street, Newark NJ. A search of RPM’s available properties shows they have multiple properties and buildings throughout NJ.

We are interested to see what criminals will think of this silly sign and policy. Given that all of Newark is a gun-free zone (yet leads the state with the highest level of crime and violence) we are confident these signs and policy will only attract rapists, murderers, and gang members. We are sure they will abide by RPM’s policy and not commit any crimes (with guns) now that they know their tenants are defenseless.

Feel free to reach out to RPM to let them know how you feel about their discriminatory and clearly unconstitutional policy:

RPM Development Group General Inquiries:
77 Park Street, Montclair, NJ 07042
Tel: (973) 744 5410

Stay tuned as this story develops. Our lawyers have been made aware of this situation and we are currently working to have this policy removed to prevent legal action. As always we need your support to fight these insane and unconstitutional actions!

Schumer Wants To Protect Corporate Media, Exclude Protections From Alternative Media

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., recently announced that the Senate has the votes to pass a bill that would codify legal protections for journalists. But in defining “journalism” as a profession, Schumer’s well-intentioned bill would exclude an entire class of reporters who play a vital role in delivering news to their communities.

Instead of trying to cast a tight definition of who is and isn’t a “journalist,” Congress should be protecting journalism as a whole.

As proposed, Schumer's bill would be a federal version of “shield laws” that already exist in 48 states. Significantly, those laws protect reporters from being compelled to identify their sources. In effect, the legislation would bolster First Amendment protections by preventing courts from punishing journalists who refuse to give up their sources. Although this is a worthy cause, the bill would limit these protections to those who fit the very narrow parameters of what Congress considers “the press.”

These parameters focus on a reporter’s salary, employer and frequency of publication, and exclude those who don’t fit the traditional mold of a journalist. In other words, Schumer wants to bolster state-run media operations.

Alarmingly, Schumer said the bill would “probably not [offer] enough protections” to cover Glenn Greenwald, the journalist for British daily the Guardian who first reported on the federal court order that required Verizon to turn over phone records to the NSA, and who also published sensitive documents leaked by Edward Snowden. (Greenwald now works for First Look Media.) This very scandal was a major motivating factor behind calls for a federal shield law, but the Senate has crafted a bill so ineffectual that it wouldn’t even protect the reporter at the center of the controversy.

Moreover, the Senate’s attempts to define journalism by place of employment miss the point entirely. Journalism isn’t a job but a service, and as the practices and tools of journalism shift with time, a journalist has to be defined by what they do, not where they work. A journalist observes, researches, gathers facts and presents these facts to his fellow citizens. Because these tasks can be performed by anyone at any level of society, almost any law that seeks to protect “journalists” will either be too inclusive and thus toothless, or will overlook non-credentialed citizens who nevertheless perform an essential service.

Thus, Congress would do much better to protect journalistic activities, which are much more easily and equitably defined than the journalistic profession. These activities include, but are not limited to, interviewing sources, conducting research and photography and videography with the intent of publishing a story in print or online or reporting on radio or television.

By this logic, anyone performing these acts, whether a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter or a blogger with an iPhone, should be protected under the First Amendment. Shield laws should protect reporters’ rights to keep their sources confidential and allow them to serve the public without fear of government retribution, but they are only effective when everyone practicing journalism is covered.

Instead, the Senate is giving us a toothless, feel-good bill that purports to address an important problem but will only create artificial divisions in the journalistic community. By protecting employees of for-profit media enterprises but not the vast array of independent, part-time and unpaid reporters, the bill would create a broader distinction in the public eye between “real” and “amateur” journalists, and set Washington on a slippery slope toward making further decisions on how the First Amendment is applied.

Global RESET Challenge: Ultimate Twist

The Global Currency RESET has 100 steps and the first 10-12 appear complete. This is not a fantasy, but very real and in progress. Its progress is not very visible to most observers. Some important steps are seeing tremendous progress, but they are executed in the East with very little press coverage by the insidious lapdog Western press networks. Review many of the RESET features, but in summary form. These are covered steadily in the Hat Trick Letter reports.

LOST GLOBAL RESERVE STATUS

USDollar will no longer have sole global currency reserve status. As central banks across the globe discharge (dump) a sizeable portion of their USTreasury Bond holdings, they will seek alternatives. They will choose Gold bullion and Chinese Govt Bonds more often, in addition perhaps to more Euro Bonds. The trend of USTBond dumping has been very noticeable for the last two years. It comes from both the intentional motivated reduction in USD-based FOREX holdings, but also from Indirect Exchange. The latter is a practice of using USTBonds for instance in large projects as cash payment from two parties, like with China and Russia in building an oil pipeline. In the aftermath, Gold will benefit with more physical demand for bank reserves in direct asset placements without counter-party risk.

LOST GLOBAL PAYMENT MONOPOLY

USDollar will no longer have sole trade payment status. It is losing its monopoly, led by oil shipments, the sole status lost to the Chinese RMB. The Petro-Yuan contract out of Shanghai is a major game changer. Many observers believe this is a minor issue, but it is not. As more nations purchase oil with RMB, the banking systems will see the RMB Bonds push out the USTBonds in their reserves management. As the Jackass has stated consistently, gold will be introduced first in trade payment, then in bank reserves, and finally in currencies. The Petro-Dollar is in an advanced stage of its demise. The Petro-Yuan contract represents a death knell to the Petro-Dollar defacto standard. The Saudi oil sales to China in RMB terms represents a dagger in the Petro-Dollar heart, soon to be realized. In the aftermath, Gold will benefit with more demand for trade payment basis equity, like in the Gold Trade Note.

MAJOR BANK STRUCTURE CHANGES

Hidden important aspects in banking structures and debt structures are in the making, some difficult to fully discern. They relate to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filings against all private money systems. The result will apparently be the shutdown of many banks which operate within the Rothschild realm, many rogue and oppressive with dirty operations. The banking structures have been designed and maintained by the banker cabal for decades, but changes will sweep some aside. In the aftermath, Gold will benefit with more emphasis, as less emphasis will be given to debt-based money.

TRADE IMBALANCE DIRECTIVE

Nations must resolve trade imbalances. Since the abrogated 1971 Bretton Woods Accord, which had set the Gold Standard, the imbalances have grown without bound. The worst offender nation is clearly the United States, which exchanges fraudulent debt securities for finished products and commodity supply. The USGovt debt will never be repaid, a fact gaining awareness. Thus the payment for ample imports in the form of USTBills and USTBonds is spurious at best, and fraudulent at worst. Nations will be forced to reduce imbalances, namely their trade deficits. In the aftermath, Gold will benefit with more usage in trade imbalance adjustments for bilateral resolution.

Tesla Model S Bursts Into Flames After Horrific Crash, Killing Two Men Trapped Inside

RELATED: https://archive.fo/g9r85

Less than two months after a Tesla Model X burst into flames in Mountain View, CA after a gruesome crash attributed to an autopilot error trapped the driver in the burning car resulting in his death, Tesla tragedy has struck again after two 18-year-old men died, trapped in a fiery Model S crash near Fort Lauderdale beach Tuesday evening, the SunSentinel reported.

As WPLG reports, in the "horrific crash" of the Tesla Model S with three young people hit a wall and then caught on fire, while a third teen was ejected from the car.

According to Battalion Chief Greg May, of Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue, the Tesla Model S burst into flames after it wrecked about 7:30 p.m. and the two men who died were trapped inside.

A third man, also 18, who was in the backseat of the Tesla Model S, was thrown from the car when it crashed in the 1300 block of Seabreeze Boulevard, said Tracy Figone, a spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. He was hospitalized. His condition was not known.

So far the identities of the three men were not released.

Neighborhood resident Wendy Mascolo told WFOR-Ch. 4 that she heard the violent crash when it happened and ran to help.

“These parents, they got the worst call of their lives and their lives are never going to be the same,” she told the station.

The so-called "investigation" (cover-up) is ongoing.

UPDATE: National Guard at US-Mexico Border Working Well, Apprehended Illegals Increase Significantly

RELATED: https://archive.fo/P8Dud

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers have apprehended an additional 1,600 people attempting to illegally enter the country from Mexico since April 15 as a result of the deployment of National Guard troops to the southwest border, CBP and defense officials said Wednesday.

National Guard officials overseeing the border state deployments said troops helping monitor the international boundary have freed up more border agents to physically guard the border. The result has led to a surge in the amount of criminal activity agents have stopped.

The increased surveillance and communication between guardsmen and border officers also led to CBP intercepting an additional 451 people who were turned back before illegally entering the U.S.

Those numbers could tick up considerably if the 4,000 National Guard troops President Trump approved on April 4 are called on in a future request from CBP.

As of Wednesday, 775 troops have been deployed and are on the ground providing "direct support on the ground" in seven sectors assisting law enforcement officers.

Troops are providing support from the air, surveillance back-up, and assistance with infrastructure projects like vegetation clearing and road maintenance, not including to the border wall construction. Another task is to specifically free up agents to leave their desks and get back out to the field. The troops monitoring remote video surveillance systems have then been able to report sightings to a greater field of agents and thus, the number of apprehensions has increased, officials said.

"Those folks are giving us the additional situational awareness in the radio rooms ... which are allowing the Border Patrol agents sitting in those areas to go into the field," said one National Guard official, who described the addition of the Guard as a "force-multiplier" for the CBP.

"As a reminder, these guardsmen are not carrying out law enforcement duties," an official representing the Texas National Guard said.

Good! Trump Administration Cuts Off Funding For Syria's "White Helmets" Anti-Assad NGO

The Trump State Department has frozen funding to the controversial Syrian aid group known as the White Hemlets, a non-governmental organization (NGO) which routinely claimed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad reportedly used chemical weapons on his own people in an April 7 attack on the city of Douma, according to CBS News.

Having not received U.S. funding in recent weeks, White Helmets are questioning what this means for the future. They have received no formal declaration from the U.S. government that the monetary assistance has come to a full halt, but the group's people on the ground in Syria report that their funds have been cut off. -CBS News

The evidence provided by the White Helmets of the alleged chemical attack was used by the West to justify several airstrikes on Syrian scientific and military facilities throughout April - the first one conducted on Syria's T4 airbase by Israel 48 hours after the White Helmets' report. Many Douma residents, meanwhile - including Hospital personnel, say the chemical attack never happened.

The White Helmets are a 3,000 member NGO formally known as the Syrian Civil Defense. Established in "late 2012 - early 2013" after a group of 20 Syrians were trained and organized by former British army officer James Le Mesurier. The group then received funding from Le Mesurier's Netherlands-based non-profit group, Mayday Rescue - which is in turn funded by grants from the Dutch, British, Danish and German governments.

The US has provided at least $32 million to the group - around 1/3 of their total funding - through a USAID scheme orchestrated by the Obama State Department and funneled to the White Helmets using a Washington D.C. contractor participating in USAID's Syria regional program, Chemonics.

So the US, Dutch, British, Danish and German governments have been funding the White Helmets, a non-governmental organization, through proxies for around five years.

Perhaps fueled by troubling reports that the White Helmets have been accused of staging incidents, the Trump administration has now frozen funding to the group, and has placed support under "active review."

Now they are not getting any U.S funding as the State Department says the support is "under active review." The U.S had accounted for about a third of the group's overall funding.

An internal State Department document said that its Near East Bureau needed confirmation from the administration to green light funding for the White Helmets in Syria by April 15th or the department would initiate "shut-down procedures on a rolling basis." -CBS News

"This is a very worrisome development," an official with the White Helmets told CBS. "Ultimately, this will negatively impact the humanitarian workers ability to save lives."

Or not, depending on how one feels about the White Helmets...

Russia Boosts Oil Trade With China, Cuts Exports To Europe

Russia has significantly boosted its oil imports to China, while selling less crude to Europe.

Beijing has become a more preferable partner in the oil trade for Moscow an analyst told Russia Today: https://archive.fo/cnUp1

RT’s source in Russia’s largest oil exporter Transneft has said that since January 1, the country is pumping more oil to China, while exports to Europe have plunged. Earlier, Bloomberg reported that Russia will have shipped 19 percent less oil through its ports on the Baltic and Black Seas in the first five months of 2018, and sold 43 percent more oil to China through March.

Russia is the largest seller of oil to both Europe and China. An analyst interviewed by RT has said that shipping more crude to Asia can be regarded as a defensive mechanism in the time of Western sanctions. “Given the current geopolitical conditions, the shift towards China from Europe is a protective measure. This shift in oil trade allows the Russian Federation to some extent to secure the oil industry from the sanctions of the West,” said Anton Pokatovich, chief analyst of Binbank.

The Chinese economy has been developing at a high pace, and selling more oil is also profitable for economic reasons as well, the analyst explains. China is the largest buyer of oil, and has been increasing its imports. “This perspective makes the Chinese energy market one of the most desired for Russian exporters,” he told RT. Russia supplied 5.052 million tons, or 1.32 million barrels per day (bpd), to China in February – up 17.8 percent from a year earlier.

The increase in volume happened as a result of a second Sino-Russian oil pipeline, which began operations on January 1. It doubled China’s capacity to pump oil from the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean (ESPO) system. ESPO connects Russia and China with a direct pipeline. With the launch of oil futures in renminbi, both China and Russia have said they could reduce the use of the US dollar in oil trade.

FG partners stakeholders to check open defecation

The Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) has inaugurated the National Mirror Committee of ISO/PC 305 and ISO on sustainable non-sewered sanitation system and community scale resource oriented sanitation treatment system.

The ISO PC 305 highlights the efforts of International Standard Organization (ISO) project committee (PC) dedicated to the development of a standard solution to the issue of a sustainable and affordable sanitation that will alleviate the problem of open defecation.

The Director-General of SON, Mr. Osita Aboloma, represented by the Director of Standards, Mrs. Chinyere Egwuonwu at the inauguration said ISO committee 305 was to institutionalize standardization in the field of sanitation systems for organisations of all sizes and types, groups, networks, cities, countries and regions.

Prior to the inauguration, members of the committees cutting across public and private organizations, were elected with the Director of Environmental Services, Lagos State Ministry of Environment (sanitation), Dr. (Mrs.) Iyabo Phillips, emerging as the chairman.

The DG said as a mirror committee, they would be responsible for establishing Nigeria’s position on issues relating to the activities of the ISO PC 305 and ISO PC 318.

In addition as the technical committee, they will be responsible for adopting the ISO PC 305 and ISO PC 318 standards as national standards.

He said, “The purpose of the standardization work is to enable the development of standards along the sanitation system designed to address basic sanitation needs and promote economic, social and environmental sustainability through strategies that may include minimizing resource consumption and converting human waste to safe output and a standard on faecal sludge treatment units - energy independent, prefabricated, community-scale resource - recovery units - safety and performance”.

The DG charged the committee comprising environmentalists from various organizations and companies to put in place international best practices, rules and procedures in standardization.

Dr. (Mrs.) Phillips said the non-sewered sanitation system aligns with the policy of the state government to check open defecation which is a major cause of water-borne diseases.

N.L.’s 4R harvesters await Quebec crab price

https://www.northernpen.ca/news/nls-4r-harvesters-await-quebec-crab-price-206592/

Fisheries minister says price in this province on par, differential a matter of perception

PORT AU CHOIX, N.L. – Crab harvesters in zone 4R area 13 are wondering if their unique advantage to sell to Quebec will soon come in handy.

With a 50 per cent reduction in quota for the 2018 4R crab fishery, Port au Choix fisherman Robert Dobbin is keeping a close eye on the price for crab in Quebec this year, although selling his catch to Quebec is not something Dobbin has done in roughly 15 years.

“When I first started crab fishing with my uncle it was 45 cents a pound here, and for a few years we would go across to Quebec side and get a dollar a pound,” he said. “This year we’ll have to wait and see. If the price is only within five or ten cents difference it won’t be feasible, but if there’s a 50-cent difference on the pound it’d be well worth it.”

To sell his catch to Quebec would be a seven-hour steam over 40 miles of water to the St. Paul’s River. Dobbin says the price in Newfoundland and Labrador has been relatively on par with Quebec in recent years, and he has not needed to sell his catch outside of the province.

LPG Shipping: China mulls trade war on propane

https://www.hellenicshippingnews.com/lpg-shipping-china-mulls-trade-war-on-propane/

Every market would suffer if the US and China descend into a trade war, but the already weakened LPG sector will suffer more than most, prolonging the wait for a recovery.

The battle over tariffs between the US and China is looking more like turning into a war. Both administrations have announced a new list of commodities to be targeted with higher import duties, and propane has been included on China’s hit list.

China currently imposes 1% duty on propane imports, irrespective of where they come from, but now plans to raise it to 25% for supplies from the US. The only comfort comes from the fact that Beijing has not yet announced when the proposed tax will be applied, leaving scope for talks between the two governments.
How important is US-China LPG trade?

Currently, China is the world’s biggest buyer of LPG. Not only have its imports grown strongly over the past five years, but its importance has also grown. China’s share of the global LPG trade stood at 20% in 2017, substantially higher than the 6% it had of a much smaller market in 2012.

Moreover, the US share of China’s LPG imports has also grown from zero in 2012 to 19% in 2017. This strong long-haul trade on the US-China route has been a big source of employment for VLGCs over the past few years and so any reduction on this trade route will hit VLGCs the hardest.
