Gay and Once Divorced, a Rabbi’s Experiences Help Her Broaden Judaism’s Tent Reader 07/12/2019 (Fri) 16:28:59 Id: 640744 [Preview] No. 15017 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
MONTREAL — When Rabbi Lisa Grushcow, the first openly gay rabbi of a large synagogue in Canada, was preparing to begin rabbinical school, she faced a daunting choice: love or serving God.

Her world was suddenly turned upside down in the late 1990s while she was studying religion at Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship, and fell in love with a woman she met at a conference. This posed a problem: The Conservative rabbinical school she planned to attend did not ordain openly gay rabbis.

Rather than abandoning her vocation, she opted instead to join the Jewish Reform movement — a liberal progressive denomination that accepts gay rabbis and gay marriage. “Coming out,” she added, “brought me closer to God.”

“It was the first time in my life when being good at something and working hard weren’t enough to open the door,” said the bookish 44-year-old rabbi, who speaks with the soothing voice of someone used to softening life’s upheavals. “By following my calling and being true to myself, I was embracing both essential parts of my identity.”

Now divorced, and remarried with two daughters and a third child on the way, she said her struggles had helped shape her inclusive approach to Judaism during posts in Manhattan and in her current role as the first female senior rabbi at the 137-year-old Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom, a sprawling Reform synagogue in Montreal’s affluent Westmount neighborhood.

Named one of “America’s most inspiring rabbis” by the influential Jewish publication The Forward, she has edited a seminal book on Judaism and sexuality, works to improve ties between Canadian Jews and Muslims; and counsels lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Jews from Newfoundland to Mexico.

And while Judaism has a long history of trailblazers in gay and gender equality — the first female rabbi, Regina Jonas, was ordained in Berlin in 1935, and the Reform movement formally endorsed the ordination of gay clergy in 1990 — Rabbi Grushcow is playing a leading role in breaking what she calls the “stained glass ceiling” in Canada, where senior female rabbis remain rare.

She observed that, in a historically patriarchal religion, “people expect their rabbi to be a stand-in for God, who they think looks like a guy with a beard sitting on a cloud — I don’t look like that.

“Being a divorced and lesbian rabbi and mom deepened my understanding of human experience,” she added. “It broadened who I can relate to.”

If you've been paying attention to odili's twitter then you've noticed that we plan to do a "migration." We've sat on our broken database for too damn long and it's preventing the site from crawling out of the hole it's been stuck in since twenty-fucking-seventeen, so we're going to be starting from a clean database and importing stuff on a best-effort basis instead of praying that a hacked-together document extraction script will make everything all better.

You will keep your boards, accounts and banners. These should be the easiest things to dump by hand anyway.

The current plan is that around next week (June 15th) we'll be setting up a "new" instance of lynxchan and keeping the site you're using right now active. This is going to be a recent stable version of lynxchan, so it'll be faster and more stable than what you're using now even before taking into account the DB issues. Stay tuned for further details, but given the amount of archival-grade stuff floating around here I want to avoid the "surprise! that thread you bookmarked is gone" problem if at all possible. There will be advance warning.

Wayland is upon upon us.

My preferred windowmanager is Fluxbox. I have not researched this exhaustively, but it appears Fluxbox is not supported under Wayland. So, what do we have as a replacement under Wayland? Minimalist and resource lite is my goal.

Not apropos of anything, but I still miss Blackbox. Eh. Tech moves ever on.

Right. My viewpoint tends to Debian-centric, and Debian is converting over to Wayland in the newest release. However, what I'm trying to imply here is what the second poster said. Like SystemD or—as a much better analogy—as with the push for pulse audio, I see the direction this is going. It's time to prepare.

There is no hurry though. Time was, I'd upgrade a day or so after Debian deployed the new version with little if any issues. Today, I've found Debian has fallen to the Microsoft model of unleashing beta-test quality products on the world. I won't touch their newest release until about six to eight months after. I've much better things to do with my time than Polish mine detecting their IBM Redhat imposed fuckups.

Anyway, ranting aside, I need to keep my employment skills in reasonable sync with Debian. For personal use, Devuan, FreeBSD, etc., is fine as alternatives. I suppose they'll be keeping with xorg for a while yet.

So. Who's taken Wayland for a test drive? Will the Blackbox inspired model of WMs survive the newest Linux distro techno apocalypse?

Palemoon blacklists NoScript Anonymous 05/12/2018 (Sat) 03:01:36 [Preview] No. 12708 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As the subject says. It's been entered into their custom "bitch at the user with a popup until they disable it" database. To be fair to the developer, he has solid reasons for his stance. I'll try to summarize as there is a lot of misinformation and emotion out there fogging the issue.

1) The Palemoon project does not have enough developer juice to debug other software and addons.
2) Various users: "[website] does not work with Palemoon. Fix your shit, Moonman!"
3) Moonman: "Known issue. Stop being morons and disable NoScript. Thank you, and have a nice day."
4) Various users: "We did. Same problem. Fix your shit."
5) Moonman: "Oh. That's an actual issue with Palemoon then. I'm on it!"
6) Much hacking and cracking and time and talent are expended to no effect. Surprise! NoScript does not follow the standard of letting go of the browser when disabled. It lingers on. It has to be completely uninstalled with an added cache clearing operation on top of that.
7) Moonman: "It's NoScript. Get rid of it. Have a nice day."
8) Various users: "No. FIX YOUR SHIT!"
9) Moonman: "Crush. Kill. DESTROY!"

If you roll with my simplification you can see his point.

I have two observations. First, quite a few sites have a technical support checklist that runs like this: "What browser are you using? Palemoon? Oh good! We have two fixes you may choose from. One, use another browser. Two, go away and do not come back."

My irony sense is tingling.

'Member when noscript had a sane UI? Now it's a bubbly UI that forces you to restart after every change. I always used to select my temp permissions then click restart near my address box. Can't do that anymore. It also had many features and settings no longer available in the newer releases. Does anyone know the benefits of using noscript over uMatrix? I know noscript is designed for javascript but uMatrix can block those too.
I'm not saying the old noscript was the best or better than uMatrix. In fact uMatrix is better and its UI is very intuitive and gives you total control, modern noscript does not. What happened?

Saw this flying by the other day on the overboard. Ah, the thread that would not die. May as well stop by. Anyway, original OP here. For what it's worth.

>Does anyone know the benefits of using noscript over uMatrix?
The gist of it is that uMatrix merely blocks items, while NoScript also injects and replaces various classes of problematic functionality. Because of this, NoScript can make certain sites and services work more smoothly and consistently while still blocking the crap with safe(er) replacements.

As detailed in the original post, the problem with this method being NoScript can't really be turned off and will affect how the browser renders a site even while disabled. It's the nature of the beast.

>I'm not saying the old noscript was the best or better than uMatrix.
Yes, of course. But, people seem to have some preconceived notions about how things should work thus driving much of the controversy in choosing which technology one must adopt.

A historical perspective may be of some use here. Giorgio Maone's path being evil at the same time as coeval with the development and deployment of much of the browser and server technology we take for granted today. While he could anticipate and elegantly solve many iffy aspects of web browsing as the scene unfolded, most of his work was devoted to crushing nasty-issue-after-nasty-issue, often mind-bendingly esoteric and unrelated, over and over, one after another. Often this was done in the face of actively hostile web service providers (and not merely site operators) who would (and still do) settle for nothing less than absolute control over the browser, and much more.

The result of this epic evolutionary arms race is what NoScript became. While Mr. Maone deserves all the credit or blame for what he has done, it's not his fault things turned out as they have. That is to say, in a certain very real sense, NoScript was made by the opposition.

What I have found today is our latest generation of the technically inclined have enough trouble coming to grips with all of what is, and making it work. What was, and why, may amuse some at best. When confronted with something like NoScript that violates so much of what they have painfully learned, it's instantly tagged as a problem instead of a solution.

I just hate since I switched to irridium that there is nothing, that I have found comparable to noscript and I'm kind of stuck with umatrix. There's scriptsafe but it's interface is leagues worse than noscript in the ui department and you just end up reloading exponentially more then you ever had to with noscript.

>NoScript is a brutal marine sergeant
this. I remember years ago when a friend recommended noscript to me and I had literally no idea wtf was goin on when I installed it. slowly but surely I grasped it's tenets and embraced the corps. Maybe I should drop my autistic grudge of pale moon and give it another shot, it's been years.

Jeffrey Epstein Arrested on Sex Trafficking Charges Reader 07/09/2019 (Tue) 10:16:29 Id: 7507c1 [Preview] No. 15013 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Billionaire jew and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested Saturday, according to NBC [j]ews. (NBC has kike chairmen Bonnie Hammer, Robert Greenblatt and Ted Harbert) Epstein was arrested in the United States as part of a joint investigation by the FBI and New York Police Department into Epstein’s putative sex trafficking of children. Epstein is expected to appear in federal court on Monday, according to CNN [jews]. (CNN is under Time Warner now Spectrum owned by Israeli multi-millionaire Aviv Nevo) Epstein’s newest charges come from a sealed indictment pertaining to sex trafficking incidents alleged to have occurred from 2002 through 2005. Additionally, some sources indicated there could have been “dozens” of young victims.

The jewish financier had previously avoided federal trial in 2008, when he pleaded guilty to two charges of prostituting minors. Consequently, Epstein would go on to receive a sentence of just 13 months. Then attorney Alexander Acosta had orchestrated Epstein’s deal. Acosta currently serves as US president Donald Trump’s Secretary of Labor. Nevertheless, Acosta has denied helping Epstein seek a lenient sentence. Trump’s appointment of Acosta and previous praise of Epstein as a “terrific guy” sparked speculation on social media that Trump might even pardon Epstein.

Epstein’s latest arrest comes after The United States 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the release of sealed documents in the Epstein case. Epstein and his legal team had opposed unsealing the documents, arguing there was a “privacy interest. This ruling is a watershed moment that helps victims of sexual abuse,” said attorney Sigrid McCawley. Others also voiced their optimism that Epstein’s victims might finally have justice. Legal activists have also long speculated that the documents might prove the involvement of other wealthy elites in Epstein’s crimes, including politicians and actors.

Okay so, hyposcrisy time.

Epstein has been a known entity for a long time. I started seeing his face and story back in the 4/pol/ days, and I'm assuming his name and antics have been in the conspiracy circle for longer than that, especially considering he beat a 36 count rape charge that went federal 11 years ago. Obviously Epstein is fucked up, and his ties run deeps but lets count the ways this gets really fucked up now with them putting the heat on Acosta after signing off on his plea aggrement in 2008.

Acosta was the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. The plea deal granted immunity from further federal prosecution. A state attorney can't be the one to do that.
>Acosta later said he had been told that Epstein "belonged to intelligence", was "above his pay grade" and to "leave it alone".
The investigation starts in March of 05 and ends in June of 08. This is happening under the auspices of George W. Bush's second administration, the FBI investigation going through Robert Mueller and the deal itself coming from Alberto Gonzales' office, if not himself directly.
Gonzales' had a fair amount of his tenure scrutinized and later resigned.

Now lets get to Acosta. As Secretary of Labor the guy is 11th in line to the presidency in the unlikely event that several people should die in rapid succession. A mostly useless contingency but a necessary one none the less. This guy got through a confirmation hearing that took 8 days and officially voted in about a month later, and he got 8 democrats to voted for him.
Contrasting this with Kavanaugh's confirmation, now the Legislative backdrop was much different then, but it took 4 months, on some specious claims from 30 years ago. While with Acosta, his past bugaboo seemingly is of no concern and possibly never even brought up. NOW all of a sudden it is a big deal that Acosta signed off on a deal, that came in through the feds, that put Epstein in jail for 13 months, supposed to go to Federal prison but they let him stay in county? And they think Acosta is ultimately the one to blame for this shit. TBH I have no dog in this fight, I don't know or care much about Acosta, and haven't till this side of the story came out. Other than wanting to see Epstein get some sort of open trial, name names etc. But the way this is all playing out really makes you wonder.
Interview Gonzales, Mueller or W. about this. Heck the latter's daughter is on national TV every goddamn morning, throw him a softball and have her interview him.

Putin Stands Against Deliberate Destabilization: Leftist Leaders Allowing Murder, Plundering and Rape Of Citizens

Russian President has slammed European leaders for allowing immigrants to “kill, plunder and rape” with impunity.'''

In an interview with the Financial Times just ahead of the G20 summit, the Russian leader slammed Western leaders’ attempt to destroy ‘traditional family values’ and warned that liberalism was dying:

“[Liberals] cannot simply dictate anything to anyone,” Mr Putin told the newspaper:

Putin added that liberalism conflicted with “the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population,” and criticized Chancellor Angela Merkel for allowing millions of refugees to spill into Germany in 2017.

“This liberal idea presupposes that nothing needs to be done. That migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants have to be protected.”

Dailymail.co.uk reports:

He added: ‘Every crime must have its punishment. The liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.’

Unfortunately there will always be the masses in every country who go along with whatever they have been conditioned, brainwashed and indoctrinated to believe and do as told. There is always only a fraction of people (people like us) who do not go along and blindly trust or follow the establishment. Even when the Founding Fathers fought the British red coats there were only 3% of them actually fighting... the other 97% just sat on the side lines and watched, most were completely neutral and didn't care which side won. As of recent, its France right now with the Yellow Jackets, a lot of people know something is terribly wrong in France (most of Europe for that matter) but only a very small fraction has decided to rebel and fight in the streets. Of-course if more people supported their efforts there may be some kind of potential (because they're outgunned, they can't cause the kind of choas they could had they been armed).

Yes, there are Muslims in Russia. But unlike most places in Europe, the government in Russia does not allow them to become radicalized or get away with serious crimes.

In Europe they are allowed to get away with horrific crimes against citizens. In Russia, they get shot by the military police if they try to stir up violence. That's the difference. Russia has strict laws to control the immigration and those that wish to come into their country, they must abide by national laws.

Computer Organization and Design (Learn how that machine you are using to shitpost works)
George Simmons Precalculus In A Nutshell (Will revamp your mathematical knowledge and help you understand deeply)
The Art Of Electronics (Learn how that machine you shitpost on works on the lowest level with electricity!)

-Get a small Raspberry Pi (Simple to learn with and a massive community and hundreds of projects done already with firmware support)
-FPGA boards (Big boy electronic design, where you get to psuedodesign your own CPU. Try https://www.nandland.com/ (Xilinx is independent, Altera is Intel owned, so I'm not going to trust them)) LIMITED ONLY BY YOUR IMAGINATION!...
-Some cheapo electronics tools and wires from Amazon or an electronic supply store. Hakko is a japanese-based company and creates some of the best soldering stations and irons for the lowest price, 60/40 solder will get the job done. Don't forget solder wick, or your gonna have a bad time. Avoid working with BGA electonics.
-A multimeter and an Oscilloscope (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) if you want to dig deeper into your electronics. A variable power supply will also give you more freedom.

Israeli Fascists Bombing Syria Again As Russia Deploys More S-300s Reader 07/01/2019 (Mon) 11:34:49 Id: 8ae23a [Preview] No. 14997 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hours after Israeli reports said Russian S-300 anti-air defense systems in Syria came online and were "operational," the Israeli military allegedly launched a major aerial attack on Syria in the middle of the night Sunday.

According to a breaking AFP report:

Syria said Israeli jets attacked several military sites near the capital Damascus and the central city of Homs early Monday, killing several people.

State news agency SANA said that Syrian air defense had intercepted several of the incoming missiles that were fired from Lebanese airspace.

Syria reported its aerial defense systems were active during the assault, which further caused damage to multiple civilian homes in the Damascus suburb of Sahnaya, according to SANA.

The major Syrian military airport at Mezzeh on the western edge of Damascus was also a reported target in the attack.

Though total casualties are still unknown, one well-known journalist from Damascus, Danny Makki, is reporting at least 4 civilians killed — including a baby — and over 20 injured.

They seem to love calling everyone else "fascists" and slandering anyone who wants to protect their culture or heritage. Yet they have the nerve to bomb other nations, killing innocent people and try grabbing their land, and they don't see anything wrong with that? If what they consider "fascist" to be true then wouldn't that lable suite them? I guess I was trying to make a point with the title.

Wasn't saying Israel isn't fascist, mate. Just correcting you on the fact that it doesn't mean as much as whatever's in peoples' heads when they think fascism is "evil". Israel is evil, but it's not groupism that makes them that way.
So what point are you making here? Are you saying, "Diversity is our greatest strength!"?
Fuck that. We all need our own cultures and nations. It's jews preventing it.

Wikipedia is full of shit. I told you what the root and the original ideal meant. From the Sicilian word fasci meaning group, Latin fasces meaning a bundle of bound sticks. That's it. That's all it is. People uniting. It wasn't even a program of particulars according to Giovanni Gentile. Now when you read over Wikipedia articles, how much silver-tongued slandering bullshit are you actually picking up? As Hasbara fellowships have conquered the website. Try seeing the sources.

MORE GOOGLE LEAKS! Google Calling Conservatives 'Nazis', New Emails Expose More Censorship Reader 06/26/2019 (Wed) 17:14:34 Id: 7d9eb9 [Preview] No. 14958 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In a second day of bombshells from James O'Keefe's Project Veritas, a leaked document reveals what appears to be members of Google's "transparency and ethics" group calling prominent Jewish conservatives Ben Shapiro and Dennis Prager "Nazis," along with Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson, who is not Jewish.

The email was leaked to Veritas following their Monday report in which an undercover operative recorded a senior Google employee admitting that the company is manipulating its algorithms ahead of the 2020 election in order to prevent the "next Trump situation."

The email apparently was sent as part of the Google “transparency-and-ethics” group internal communications and suggests that content from PragerU, Jordan Peterson, and Ben Shapiro should be disabled from the “suggestion feature.” -Project Veritas

"…if we understand that PragerU, Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro et al are nazis using the dog whistles…" reads the email. "I don’t think correctly identifying far-right content is beyond our capabilities. But if it is, why not go with Meredith’s suggestion of disabling the suggestion feature?"


“I don’t think correctly identifying far-right content is beyond our capabilities. But if it is, why not go with Meredith’s suggestion of disabling the suggestion feature?”

After the release of our Google investigation, Google Senior Executive Jen Gennai posted on Medium saying:

“Google has repeatedly been clear that it works to be a trustworthy source of information, without regard to political viewpoint. In fact, Google has no notion of political ideology in its rankings.” – Jen Gennai, Head of Responsible Innovation at Google

Warning All Microsoft Users: You May Need To Switch To Linux or an Other Alternative OS Soon... READ WHY Anonymous 04/10/2018 (Tue) 16:00:02 [Preview] No. 12580 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

"Microsoft have changed their terms of service so that they can monitor any of your personal content, including the files on your PC, while using their products or services and if they deem it offensive they can take that content and their products/services away from you and ban you! If you happen to have an Xbox or have bought PC games from the Microsoft Store and are logged into your Microsoft account on any device while committing your "crime" you can be banned from Xbox Live and have all your downloaded games and any credit that's still in your account taken away!

But it gets worse. This applies to all Microsoft products and services. So therefore Windows itself! I think I have already been a victim, probably due to posting here, as recently my Windows 10 key was revoked out of the blue. I contacted Microsoft and they told me my key was no longer valid but outright refused to tell me why. So I had to buy Windows 10 again. I didn't buy it direct from them of course. Please post if this has happened to you very recently too.

I'm pretty scared about what's coming. They want us off the internet and I think this is how they're going to get many people. They're going to just shutdown our Windows on the basis of us breaking their new terms of service. What if ISPs are next?"

OP comment:

First off, no one should be using Windows 10. If you like Windows get an older one like Windows 2000, Vista or XP and make sure you turn OFF all automatic updates in the settings. Make sure you do not leave it online 24/7 either (leaving the OS online when not in use makes it much more vulnerable). There are also programs out there you can install that will completely remove all auto-updates for Windows if you are too lazy to change the settings.

If you want to switch to Linux you can install "Wine" and run Windows executives right from your Linux OS. Depending on which OS you partition (such as Q4OS) this will mimick an older version of Windows. Q4OS is what I recommend because you can install Wine and the OS replicates Windows XP, looking almost exactly the same!

Second, which is VERY important, users should be using a private VPN service in this day and age. No reason not to. Get off your lazy ass, buy a cheap private VPN (these can cost as low as $30 PER YEAR), and shield yourself by encrypting your communications and spoofing your IPs. Its easy and even us boomers can learn how to do it, I did.

Third: always have physical offline backups of any of your important files (this includes ISOs of the OS you use, software you may use and any media or other files you deem valuable).

Might be a good idea to not install the Windows OS on bare metal and instead, only use it inside virtual machines. It's likely Windows fingerprints the system hardware so putting it in a metaphorical condom might help keep the actual hardware safe. This should also help prevent it from contaminating any sort of firmware on the machine, although it's not a guarantee.

Many of those virus scanners include functionality that checks the hash result of each scanned file against a database of file hashes, so that could be used to identify specific files.

Good! Italy Arrests Captain Of NGO Ship After Illegally Trafficking African Migrants Reader 07/01/2019 (Mon) 11:33:58 Id: 23ec6b [Preview] No. 14996 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The captain of a migrant transport ship that docked at the southern Italian island of Lampedusa was arrested on Saturday following a protracted standoff, according to the New York Times.

The 40 migrants onboard disembarked after 16 days on the Sea Watch 3, operated by German NGO Sea-Watch and operating under the Dutch flag.

Captain Carola Rackete, 31, docked just before 2 a.m. - ramming a border-control vessel trying to stop them in the process. Rackete was arrested on charges of "resisting a war ship," which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.

Sea Wach spokeswoman Giorgia Linardi said that the situation was still "unfolding," and that the charges had yet to be formalized. She added that the migrants had been taken to a migration center on the island.

The Sea Watch, which rescued 53 people off the coast of Libya on June 12, had navigated toward Italy after rejecting an offer to dock in Tripoli, Libya, which humanitarian groups do not deem safe. Thirteen migrants had been allowed to disembark in Italy for medical reasons after the rescue. -New York Times

Italy's Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, has closed the country's ports to rescue ships and demanded that other European nations take on the migrants. On Friday, five countries offered to take them. Salvini, who previously referred to the GNO vessel as a "pirate ship," told RAI state radio that he had "asked for the arrest of an outlaw" who had endangered the lives of border patrol officers. He also ordered authorities to sequester the ship "which goes around the Mediterranean breaking laws."

Saturday morning, Salvini tweeted a video of the ship's arrival, writing "Outlaw commander arrested. Pirate ship confiscated. Maxi-fine to a foreign NGO. Migrants distributed to other European countries. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED."

Chicago To Raise Taxes Again Over Growing Debt Insolvency, Pension Theft Reader 07/01/2019 (Mon) 11:33:17 Id: b479a3 [Preview] No. 14995 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Chicagoans are buried under so much pension debt it’s impossible to see how their city can avoid a fiscal collapse without major, structural reforms. The futility of paying down those debts becomes obvious when you try to figure out just who’s going to pay for it all.

The total amount of city, county and state retirement debt Chicagoans are on the hook for is $150 billion, based on Moody’s most recent pension data. Split that evenly across the city’s one million-plus households and you arrive at nearly $145,000 per household.

That’s an outrageous amount, but it would be a clean solution if each and every Chicago household could simply absorb $145,000 in government retirement debt. The problem is most can’t.

One-fifth of Chicagoans live in poverty and nearly half of all Chicago households make less than $50,000 a year. It wouldn’t just be wrong to try and squeeze those Chicagoans further, but pointless. They don’t have the money.

So if that won’t work, why not just put all the burden on Chicago’s “rich?” After all, Illinois lawmakers are pushing progressive tax schemes as the panacea for Illinois’ problems.

If households earning $200,000 or more are the target, they’ll be on the hook for more than $2 million each in government retirement debts. That’s an outrageous burden, too.

Saddling just a few households with all the debt will give those residents all the more reason to leave. And that will make the burden all the more unbearable for the Chicagoans who remain.


Leaked Photos Reveal Mainstream Media Faked AOC Crying Stunt Reader 06/28/2019 (Fri) 14:13:16 Id: 37d976 [Preview] No. 14968 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Newly uncovered photos from the border protest attended by a tearful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez show that she was crying over an empty parking lot.

Many have accused the Congresswoman and her supporters of staging a photo-op after the images, taken during a 2018 event outside a migrant “tent city” in Tornillo, Texas, went viral earlier this week.

The photos show an emotional AOC holding her face and appearing to cry. Her attention appears to be directed towards whatever is on the other side of the fence.

However, a photo from a different angle shows there is nothing there aside from an empty parking lot and some police officers.

Another image shows a photographer being careful to capture AOC’s reaction as she gets emotional over what appears to be little other than a vehicle and a tree.

As we previously reported, Ocasio-Cortez attended to star-studded “protest” wearing a pristine white outfit, bright red lipstick and a $600 dollar watch.

This prompted many of her critics to accuse the Congresswoman and her supporters of staging the photos, arguing that the images did not show a spontaneous, authentic reaction.

I decided to stage a photoshoot just like @AOC!

Except I’m outside of an inner-city school where the conditions are abhorrent and the majority of black AMERICAN boys can’t pass a basic reading exam.

EU Announces Channel To Circumvent Western SWIFT Payment System Over Iran Sanctions Reader 06/29/2019 (Sat) 17:03:51 Id: 81dde6 [Preview] No. 14979 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
With the world waiting for the first headlines from the Trump-Xi meeting, the most important and unexpected news of the day hit moments ago, when Europe announced that the special trade channel, Instex, that will allow European firms to avoid SWIFT and bypass American sanctions on Iran, is now operational.

Following a meeting between the countries who singed the Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was ditched by US, French, British and German officials said the trade mechanism which was proposed last summer and called Instex, is now operational.

As a reminder, last September, in order to maintain a financial relationship with Iran that can not be vetoed by the US, Europe unveiled a "Special Purpose Vehicle" to bypass SWIFT. The mechanism would facilitate transactions between European and Iranian companies, while preventing the US from vetoing the transactions and pursuing punitive measures on those companies and states that defied Trump. The payment balancing system will allow companies in Europe to buy Iranian goods, and vice-versa, without actual money-transfers between European and Iranian banks.

The statement came after the remaining signatures of JCPOA gathered in Vienna for a meeting that Iranian ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi called "the last chance for the remaining parties...to gather and see how they can meet their commitments towards Iran."

Until today, Tehran was skeptical about EU's commitment to the deal and threatened to exceed the maximum amount of enriched uranium allowed it by the deal after US had imposed a series of sanctions on the country.

Meanwhile, opponents of Instex - almost exclusively the US - have argued that the mechanism is flawed because the Iranian institution designated to work with Instex, the Special Trade and Finance Instrument, has shareholders with links to entities already facing sanctions from the US.

The announcement sent oil sharply lower, with crude futures falling about $1/bbl in closing minutes before settlement, extending daily loss, as it means Iran now has a fully functioning pathway to receive payment for oil it exports to anyone it chooses.

The announcement will likely send president Trump off the rails, because in late May Bloomberg reported that as part of Trump's escalating battle with "European allies" over the fate of the Iran nuclear accord, he was "threatening penalties against the financial body created by Germany, the U.K. and France to shield trade with the Islamic Republic from U.S. sanctions" including the loss of access to the US financial system.

According to Bloomberg, the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, sent a letter on May 7 warning that Instex, the European SPV to sustain trade with Tehran, and anyone associated with it could be barred from the U.S. financial system if it goes into effect.

Boeing Outsourced Its 737 MAX Software Before The Crash Reader 06/29/2019 (Sat) 17:00:20 Id: 3ecc17 [Preview] No. 14976 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The software at the heart of the Boeing 737 MAX crisis was developed at a time when the company was laying off experienced engineers and replacing them with temporary workers making as little as $9 per hour, according to Bloomberg.

In an effort to cut costs, Boeing was relying on subcontractors making paltry wages to develop and test its software. Often times, these subcontractors would be from countries lacking a deep background in aerospace, like India.

Boeing had recent college graduates working for Indian software developer HCL Technologies Ltd. in a building across from Seattle's Boeing Field, in flight test groups supporting the MAX. The coders from HCL designed to specifications set by Boeing but, according to Mark Rabin, a former Boeing software engineer, “it was controversial because it was far less efficient than Boeing engineers just writing the code.”

Rabin said: “...it took many rounds going back and forth because the code was not done correctly.”

In addition to cutting costs, the hiring of Indian companies may have landed Boeing orders for the Indian military and commercial aircraft, like a $22 billion order received in January 2017. That order included 100 737 MAX 8 jets and was Boeing’s largest order ever from an Indian airline. India traditionally orders from Airbus.

HCL engineers helped develop and test the 737 MAX's flight display software while employees from another Indian company, Cyient Ltd, handled the software for flight test equipment. In 2011, Boeing named Cyient, then known as Infotech, to a list of its “suppliers of the year”.

One HCL employee posted online: “Provided quick workaround to resolve production issue which resulted in not delaying flight test of 737-Max (delay in each flight test will cost very big amount for Boeing).”

No Surprise: Apple Sells Out To China Reader 06/29/2019 (Sat) 16:59:39 Id: 610263 [Preview] No. 14975 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Apple Inc. is manufacturing its new Mac Pro computer in China, according to people familiar with its plans, shifting abroad production of what had been its only major device assembled in the U.S. as trade tensions escalate between the Trump administration and Beijing.

The tech giant has tapped Taiwanese contractor Quanta Computer Inc. to manufacture the $6,000 desktop computer and is ramping up production at a factory near Shanghai, the people said. Apple can save on shipping costs for components given the proximity of many of its suppliers to Shanghai, rather than having to supply a factory in the US.

Apple’s reliance on factories in China to manufacture its products has been an issue for the company, especially under President Trump, who has pressured Apple and other companies to make more in the US.

Flex and Quanta declined to comment. An Apple spokesman said the new Mac Pro is designed and engineered in the U.S. and includes U.S.-made components. Apple said it supports manufacturing in 30 U.S. states and spent $60 billion last year with more than 9,000 U.S. suppliers.

Apple invested $100 million in tooling and other equipment for a plant in Austin, Texas, run by contract manufacturer Flex Ltd. Each computer was stamped “Assembled in the USA.”

“Final assembly is only one part of the manufacturing process,” the spokesman said, adding that the company’s investments support two million American jobs.

Ammo Sales Skyrocketing Before Commiefornia's Ammo Regulations Come Into Affect Reader 06/28/2019 (Fri) 16:48:24 Id: 0b0fe0 [Preview] No. 14974 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
California gun owners have been rushing to buy bullets before a new background check law goes into effect statewide on Monday, the first of its kind in the nation.

"In the last two weeks I’ve been up about 300 percent," one Sacramento ammunition store owner told Fox News, adding that people have been "bulking up because of these stupid new laws."

Enacted in 2016, Proposition 63 and SB 1235 require one of two types of background check when buying any type of ammunition for a firearm; a $1 "Standard Ammunition Eligibility Check" for anyone who has legally purchased a handgun in the state since 1990 (and whose CA Driver's License or ID matches the address used at the time) which takes 2-3 minutes, or a more invasive $19 "Basic Ammunition Eligibility Check" that will take up to 10 days to complete.

Those with a valid "Certificate of Eligibility" (COE) issued by the DOJ will require a $1 fee.

"Locking a door doesn’t stop a thief from breaking in, so putting another restriction on ammunition it’s not going to stop a crazy person or person with mental illness from getting ammunition or a firearm," one LA-area gun store owner told Fox 11.

There are currently 10 bills in pending in the State Legislature which would expand on the law - one of which would allow people to petition a court to disarm a resident deemed to be "at risk," while another would extend restraining orders related to gun violence from one year to five years.

A lawsuit has been filed against the state by opponents of the new laws for violation of their 2nd amendment rights.


Communist Oligarch George Soros Wants Banks To Politically Discriminate Against People Reader 06/28/2019 (Fri) 14:43:09 Id: 954673 [Preview] No. 14970 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As if the censorship of conservatives isn’t already too much, a group of far-left political activist groups, including one funded by George Soros, are calling for the financial blacklisting of wider sections of the political right.

The groups held a protest at Mastercard’s annual general meeting (AGM) on Tuesday, demanding that the international credit card giant financially blacklist a large number of prominent conservative voices and organizations.

SumOfUs and Sleeping Giants circled the venue with a billboard stating: “Putting hate groups out of business? #Priceless.”

Breitbart.com reports:

According to a press release published by the two organizations, this was coupled with a speech from Sleeping Giants co-founder Nandini Jammi, “addressing the need for Mastercard to take swift action by cutting off its services to these hate groups.”

Sleeping Giants, whose founders initially refused to take accountability for the organization’s words and actions by remaining anonymous, was set up in 2016 by far-left political activists with the sole stated purpose of defunding Breitbart by spreading lies about it. The identity of its other founder, former advertising professional Matt Rivitz, was revealed last year.

Sleeping Giants coupled these smears with targeted social media harassment campaigns against corporations whose ads appeared on Breitbart News.

Over time, Sleeping Giants expanded its targets to encompass any conservative media with which its organizers politically disagree, including Fox News shows like Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Daily Caller, Dennis Prager, and the Daily Wire.

Good! Italian Police Arrest Massive Government-run Pedo Ring In Italy Reader 06/28/2019 (Fri) 14:33:18 Id: 19884a [Preview] No. 14969 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Italian police have arrested 18 people including a mayor, doctors and social workers for brainwashing vulnerable children and selling them.

Police in the northern city of Reggio Emilia made the arrests following an investigation launched in 2018 that uncovered a network of carers who brainwashed children into believing their parents had abused them.

The network would then sell the children to foster families, while keeping gifts and letters sent to the children by their biological parents hidden in a warehouse.

France24.com reports:

The alleged abuse was reported by Italian media and confirmed to AFP by police in Bibbiano, near Reggio Emilia, on Thursday.

“These accusations, if confirmed, are frightening and shocking,” Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said at the G20 meeting in Japan.

The accused include psychotherapists working for a social work association in Moncalieri, near Turin, and the mayor of Bibbiano.

To brainwash the children, those arrested allegedly forged child-like drawings with sexual connotations and used electroshock therapy as a “little memory machine” to create fake abuse memories, while the therapists are accused of dressing up as “wicked” children’s story characters.

Communist Professor Calls For Starving White Families To Death Reader 06/26/2019 (Wed) 17:49:28 Id: 2c462d [Preview] No. 14963 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A professor of literature at the State University of New York (SUNY) says it makes him happy when he sees poor white people on the street begging for food or money because it “feels like justice” and “historical vengeance.”

Professor Nicholas Powers, whose research interests include African American aesthetics and Marxism, writes that:

“white people begging us for food feels like justice. It feels like Afro-Futurism after America falls. It feels like a Black Nationalist wet dream. It has the feels I rarely feel, a hunger for historical vengeance satisfied so well I rub my belly.”

The article, published by Race Baitr, has since been deleted.

The College Fix reports:

The professor says he understands that this isn’t a “good look”; however, when he thinks about Martin Luther King Jr.’s invocations of “be [thy] best self” and “show compassion to those who spite you,” he retorts “go fuck another secretary Martin!”

White people, Powers says, are a Rorschach test: “I see in them the history of colonization, slavery and mass incarceration that makes their begging Black people for money ironic—if not insulting. You wasted your whiteness! Why should we give to you?”

And why? "The holocaust, slavery." These fuckers need a wake-up call, and they're not incapable of receiving information.

A couple of these videos are by an awake mulatto named John from Prothink.org who's videos where removed from YouTube in the early 2000s. The immigration flood and "creation of a brown docile slave" plus "elimination of the white European" plot by loxist jews is not going to work out in their favor in the long-run. The parasite is incapable of prediction for their subversive actions.

Dear Students, Here's A Plan To Solve Your Debt Problem Reader 06/01/2019 (Sat) 16:54:11 Id: 52fe9f [Preview] No. 14809 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
So, you’re a barista with a problem – you took out $200K student loans to get that master’s degree from Gumbo State in “LGBTQ2#v& Experiences as Reflected in 17th Century Bolivian Folk Songs” and now you can’t find an uncaffeinated career.

Worse, those fascist monsters who you took money from based on your agreement to pay it back with interest now expect you to pay the money back with interest despite the fact that you really don’t feel like it anymore.

Well, I have a fresh solution to this crisis. It’s an innovative strategy that totally and permanently resolves this problem in a new and exciting way.

How about you pay your own student debt?

See, a lot of Democrat politicians are promising “free college,” but what they really mean is “free for you.” Someone has to pay, and that someone is me, and I need to level with you.

I am not interested in paying for your college.

Now, some may call me “greedy” or “selfish” for not wishing to work and then have the money I earned taken from me to provide things to you that you want but did not pay for instead of being able to spend it – the “it” being the money I earned – on things that I want. I am okay with that. I would much prefer having people who fundamentally misunderstand the concepts of greed and selfishness call me “greedy” and “selfish” than subsidize their educations, educations that evidently did not include learning about basic concepts like greed and selfishness.

I certainly understand that academia is a scam and that the government allows lending to people who foolishly undertake debts that they cannot pay. I would stop it all – no government participation in the student loan industry and full bankruptcy dischargeability for student debts. Of course, this would mean many less people taking loans, and therefore fewer college students. No lose to society there. This means many colleges would actually start having to compete for students, and even – gasp – lower prices. Sounds good to me, though they would scream bloody murder – colleges have gotten fat off of loan money and many schools would go under without this pot of suckers’ cash. Oh well.

Sure, academia is a grift, but you did sign on the line that is dotted. You took the money. And I say that you pay it back instead of me.

I'm kind of half-ass on this issue myself because, first of all, the government did nationalize the student loan debt and by doing so they protected predatory lending as corrupt universities kept raising the prices higher and higher.

How did the government protect them? They simply removed the bankruptcy clause from student loans!

What that means is that students cannot default on their student loan debt by filing for bankruptcy! By the government protecting the 'educational system', they actually made it 1000% more corrupt and insolvent! I mean, go figure, the government will pay $700 for a toilet seat lid and that's in their own budgets! Government doesn't know how to manage money because they never worked hard for the money we pay them in taxes.... so its a big mess around a decade later due to government intervention in a market place they know NOTHING about.....

But the real problem is students can't afford these loans.... and the banks are guilty of predatory loaning.... and the universities are guilty of racketeering and overpricing/cooking cost values (extortion). But the students are obligated to pay this debt back, so this created a generation of debt slaves.

What NEEDS to be done is removing governmental protections, undo nationalization of the student loans, and ALLOW debt defaults for those students via bankruptcy cause!! What will happen? Mass debt defaults. Corrupted greedy banks go BUST. Corrupted greedy universities go BUST. Students are forced to re-finance based upon what they can pay off, but maybe they lose their car and can't vacation for a while (oh boo hoo!).

Kikes in Control: Facebook Will Now Give Data on 'Hate Speech' to Any Court That Requests It Reader 06/26/2019 (Wed) 17:19:07 Id: 201fa9 [Preview] No. 14960 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
* Follows Macron-Zuckerberg meetings

* France seeks to take lead role in regulating tech groups

* Hate speech now at "same level as terrorism" - lawyer (Adds comment, background)

By Mathieu Rosemain

PARIS, June 25 (Reuters) - In a world first, Facebook has agreed to hand over the identification data of French users suspected of hate speech on its platform to judges, France's minister for digital affairs Cedric O said on Tuesday.

O, whose father is South Korean, is one of French President Emmanuel Macron's earliest followers, and has been influential in shaping the president's thinking on Big Tech as an advisor at the Elysee palace in the first two years of Macron's presidency.

The decision by the world's biggest social media network comes after successive meetings between Zuckerberg and Macron, who wants to take a leading role globally on the regulation of hate speech and the spread of false information online.

So far, Facebook has cooperated with French justice on matters related to terrorist attacks and violent acts by transferring the IP addresses and other identification data of suspected individuals to French judges who formally demanded it.

Following a meeting between Nick Clegg, Facebook's head of global affairs, and O last week, the social media company has extended this cooperation to hate speech.

"It is a strong signal in terms of regulation," said Sonia Cisse, a counsel at law firm Linklaters, adding that it was a world first. "Hate speech is no longer considered part of freedom of speech, it's now on the same level as terrorism."

With Facebook's latest move, France is now a clear frontrunner in the quest to regulate big social media outlets, and other platforms might follow suite, Cisse said.

The discussions on how to best regulate tech giants began with a Zuckerberg-Macron meeting last year, followed by a report on tech regulation last month that Facebook's founder considered could be a blueprint for wider EU regulation.

Facebook had refrained from handing over identification data of people suspected of hate speech because it was not compelled to do so under U.S.-French legal conventions and because it was worried countries without an independent judiciary could abuse it.

France's parliament, where Macron's ruling party has a comfortable majority, is debating legislation that would give the new regulator the power to fine tech companies up to 4% of their global revenue if they don't do enough to remove hateful content from their network.

O also signalled his openness to seeing French startups being snapped up by larger U.S. companies, in a spite of recent measures taken by Macron's government to bolster anti-takeover rules to protect the country's strategic companies.

"My only goal is to spur the creation of a lot of companies," he said. "I have no problem with the fact that some of them are bought by U.S. companies, as long as they don't have critical technology."

Sociopaths Leading The Way To Debt Insolvency, Hyperinflation And Economic Ruin Reader 05/01/2019 (Wed) 15:23:03 Id: d9f5f4 [Preview] No. 14616 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
No one seems to care that a government already over $22 trillion in debt is on schedule to borrow another $990 million this year. All of this is occurring as individual Americans further enslave themselves with higher debt loads and retail stores fail over the inability to pay back the money they borrowed. But there are many reasons to be concerned about government spending.

The debt-based system we live under won’t sustain itself forever. Don’t get us wrong, the sociopaths in government and at the Federal Reserve (central bankers) will prop it up for as long as possible, but it is doomed to fail. That $22 trillion doesn’t include unfunded liabilities either, making the situation even uglier.

According to ABC News, The Treasury Department on Monday projected that borrowing in the April-June quarter would total $30 billion. Borrowing in the July-September period, the final quarter of the budget year will total $160 billion. The $990 billion borrowing total for the 2019 budget year would be down from $1.2 trillion borrowed in 2018. But both years are up from 2017’s $519 billion in government borrowing.

The Foundation for Economic Freedom (FEE) reported that the deficits are likely to double within ten years, making this an issue that could impoverish everyone. There are 5 reasons why the national debt is a big problem and why everyone should be worried about it.

Benefits Spending: Most federal spending is for subsidy and benefit programs, not for activities that increase productivity. Subsidy and benefit programs distort the economy and generally reduce overall output and incomes. Those distortions occur whether spending is financed by debt or current taxes. But the availability of debt financing induces policymakers to increase overall spending, which at the margin goes toward lower-valued activities.

Tax Damage Compounded: When taxes are extracted to pay for government spending, it induces people to change their working and investing activities, which distorts the economy and reduces growth. When spending is financed by borrowing, the tax damage is pushed to the future and compounded with interest costs.

Investment Reduced: Government borrowing may “crowd out” private investment and thus reduce future output and incomes. Economist James Buchanan said: “By financing current public outlay by debt, we are, in effect, chopping up the apple trees for firewood, thereby reducing the yield of the orchard forever.” The crowd out will be reduced if private saving rises to offset government deficits. But the CBO says “the rise in private saving is generally a good deal smaller than the increase in federal borrowing.” Government debt may also deter investment through expectations—businesses will hesitate to invest if rising debt creates fears of tax increases down the road.

Borrowing from Abroad: A decline in private investment due to government borrowing may be avoided if capital is attracted from abroad. Indeed, huge federal borrowing has been facilitated by global capital markets, and today more than 40 percent of the federal debt is held by foreigners. Borrowing from abroad may prevent a fall in domestic investment, but it does not prevent the shifting of costs to future taxpayers. As government debt rises, more of our future earnings will be taxed to pay interest and principal on the government’s debt to foreigners.

Macroeconomic Instability: CBO warns that a “large and continuously growing federal debt would … increase the likelihood of a fiscal crisis in the United States.” Experience shows that high levels of government debt tend to reduce growth and increase financial fragility. In their study of financial crises through history, Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff concluded, “again and again, countries, banks, individuals, and firms take on excessive debt in good times without enough awareness of the risks that will follow when the inevitable recession hits.” Government debt, they found, “is certainly the most problematic, for it can accumulate massively and for long

Hopefully, two central banks have been run out of the country in the past, I think the last one around the civil war era? Not too sure on that. Regardless, when this system crashes (and it will at some point) hopefully we can elect someone who will stand up to these kike bankers and shut the Fed down. Maybe go back to a silver or gold standard (if we have enough reserves for it).

Project Veritas has released a new report on Google which includes undercover video of a Senior Google Executive, leaked documents, and testimony from a Google insider. The report appears to show Google’s plans to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections and “prevent” the next “Trump situation.”

[this video is backed up & mirrored elsewhere]

The report includes undercover footage of longtime Google employee and Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai saying:

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”

Said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe:

“This is the third tech insider who has bravely stepped forward to expose the secrets of Silicon Valley. These new documents, supported by undercover video, raise questions of Google’s neutrality and the role they see themselves fulfilling in the 2020 elections.”

Jen Gennai is the head of “Responsible Innovation” for Google, a sector that monitors and evaluates the responsible implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. In the video, Gennai says Google has been working diligently to “prevent” the results of the 2016 election from repeating in 2020:

“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.”

TRAITORS WITHIN! Acting DHS Chief Sabotaged ICE Raids By Leaking Plan To Washington Post! Reader 06/24/2019 (Mon) 05:25:04 Id: a3fa9e [Preview] No. 14932 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Since the Washington Post spoiled the surprise and published a report about the Trump Administration's plan to arrest thousands of migrant families who have been denied asylum - prompting the administration to cancel the raids - many have probably been wondering why somebody inside would break President Trump's longstanding policy of not telegraphing your moves in advance.

Well, now that question appears to have been answered by the Washington Examiner: The acting head of DHS, Kevin McAleenan, reportedly leaked the details of the operation (he traveled alongside the WaPo reporter who broke the story earlier this week) in what sources described as a deliberate attempt to sabotage the raids.

According to several sources who spoke with the Examiner, McAleenan had opposed the raids for months. The acting DHS head, who has been credited with pushing the policy of sending more agents to Guatemala, is said to be more concerned with what Congressional Democrats and the 'Never Trumpers' think of his performance than most other members of the administration.

"I know he has not approved of this operation for months," one person familiar with those private conversations said during a phone call Saturday night. "The president wouldn’t leak that. ICE wouldn’t leak that. There’s only a few people involved in these discussions...the only one who could have shared the details of those operations were Kevin."

"That’s our belief," a second official said when asked if McAleenan was behind the leak. "The secretary was not supportive from day one."

The White House said it had called off the operation to allow more time for lawmakers to work on a plan to fix legal "loopholes" that have helped to entice migrants to come to the US. In reality, McAleenan successfully stymied the operation by exposing the broad strokes. McAleenan allegedly told WaPo that the mass roundups would take place in 10 cities, including Chicago, Miami and Houston. The mayor of Chicago ordered Chicago Police not to grant ICE access to its databases, and refuse to cooperate in any way with the raids.

One officials said that, by leaking the details of the raid, McAleenan might have been trying to "be the martyr" in the face of blowback against Trump's immigration policies. That is, he was trying to distance himself from the administration's decision making.

The third anonymous source quoted by the Examiner blasted McAleenan as a sucker for 'Never Trumpers' and 'liberals' and insisted the leak would "leave an un-erasable mark" on his time at the head of DHS.

Pentagon To Turkey: No More F-35s For You If You Purchase S-400s, Turkey Cares Less Reader 06/25/2019 (Tue) 21:38:16 Id: 546f49 [Preview] No. 14952 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The United States will stop Turkey from flying and developing the F-35 stealth jet if Ankara moves forward with their purchase of Russia's S-400 missile system, according to Kay Bailey Hutchison, the US envoy to NATO.

"There will be a disassociation with the F-35 system, we cannot have the F-35 affected or destabilized by having this Russian system in the alliance," Hutchison told reporters in Brussels. "Everything indicates that Russia is going to deliver the system to Turkey and that will have consequences," she added.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, however, vowed on Tuesday to push forward with their purchase of the Russian system, according to Reuters.

"We will hopefully start to receive the S-400 systems we purchased from Russia next month, Erdogan told his AK Party in parliament, adding: "Turkey is not a country that needs to seek permission or bow to pressures. The S-400s are directly linked to our sovereignty and we will not take a step back."

The United States says the jets, made by Lockheed Martin Corp., give NATO forces a number of technological advantages in the air, including the ability to disrupt enemy communications networks and navigation signals.

Turkey produces parts of the F-35s fuselage, landing gear and cockpit displays. Hutchison said Ankara was an important partner in that production but that security concerns about Russia were paramount.

“So many of us have tried to dissuade Turkey,” she said. -Reuters

The United States has offered Turkey its more expensive Patriot missile system - first at full price, and then at a steep discount - however, issues arose over a timely delivery of the Raytheon-made systems.

US Military Knocks Out Iranian Military Computers In Polymorphic Electronic Worm Attacks Reader 06/24/2019 (Mon) 05:22:00 Id: 65e757 [Preview] No. 14931 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computer systems on Thursday as President Donald Trump backed away from plans for a more conventional military strike in response to Iran’s downing of a U.S. surveillance drone, U.S. officials said Saturday.

Two officials told The Associated Press that the strikes were conducted with approval from Trump. A third official confirmed the broad outlines of the strike. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the operation.

The cyberattacks — a contingency plan developed over weeks amid escalating tensions — disabled Iranian computer systems that controlled its rocket and missile launchers, the officials said. Two of the officials said the attacks, which specifically targeted Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps computer system, were provided as options after Iranian forces blew up two oil tankers earlier this month.

The IRGC, which was designated a foreign terrorist group by the Trump administration earlier this year, is a branch of the Iranian military.

There was no immediate reaction Sunday morning in Iran to the U.S. claims. Iran has hardened and disconnected much of its infrastructure from the internet after the Stuxnet computer virus, a joint US-Israeli creation, disrupted thousands of Iranian centrifuges in the late 2000s.

Also, areas of sensitive operations should also be heavily faraday caged (and preferably underground). The reason is the existence of electromagnetic warfare which was being tested since the 1950s. If your enemy holds advanced electromagnetic weaponry it can be used to disrupt isolated computer systems / basic electronics remotely from a certain distance. Proper faraday caging sensitive areas will mitigate those threats.

"Announcing a cyberattack" is nothing but a transparent lame-ass political wank with a pathetic barely-one-drop little dribble of jizz at the end. The instant a "cyberattack" becomes known, it is defended against im-fucking-ediately. Effective trojan payloads are not disclosed. They affect their targets in anomalous, vague, very difficult-to-diagnose ways to avoid removal. Alternatively, they disable some critical piece of enemy infrastructure at a critical point in time as part of a larger mission; think clipping telegraph lines in Germany the morning of D-Day. Either way, you don't announce it when it's politically expedient. So, no, there was no big knocking out of Iran's military computers. It's just another load of propaganda bullshit from an administration that can't stop lying about everything.

Well good point there, according to the report three officials claimed a cyber-attack already took place... although they could be lying, who knows? But why lie about something like that? I mean, like you mentioned, wouldn't that defeat the purpose if still in the plans?

Because they're insane. See The Last American Vagabond on YouTube. Even caught out in stupid lies frequently, the retards keep trying because they have an army of more retards watching mainstream media and agreeing with the administration as they drool on themselves. I've spoken to these absolute idiots in person. The ones that follow the mainstream and parrot talking points from television. Their numbers aren't dwindling. They're not "just boomers". The boot-lickers are everywhere. I wouldn't mind taking a forever nap if WW3 happened and the entire earth was nuked. I'm tired. Never get enough sleep, not with knowing the truth about the world.

Little by little I am growing to loathe and hate them just as much as you do anon. I really don't want to see America end like this, but if it keeps going in this direction, and only gets worse, than there is no point of saving this nation or chance for redemption, the only logical conclusion would be to endorse a USSR-style collapse, which would end in mass death toll and anyone left would be faced with the challenges of starting all over. That is, if we could start over at that point (if China and Russia would even allow that to happen).... we may not get that chance, well at least most of us likely won't.

Gold Standard Coming Into View As Western Demise Imminent

A Perfect Storm is hitting the Gold market, with an internal factor (return to Quantitative Easing on steroids), an external factor (Shanghai Gold Exchange taking market share), and a systemic factor (Basel 3 Rule permitting Gold in account ratios). All three forces are positive in releasing Gold from the corrupt clutches of the Anglo-American banker organization. The Eastern Hemisphere has a planned coordinated and effective strategy to abandon the USDollar and to adopt the Gold Standard. It has happened first in the trade payment form, actually more like a global blossoming process. More progress can be inferred in its early stages.

In the last ten years since the Lehman Brothers failure, all systems have undergone the same reckless treatment that the mortgage bonds endured. Slowly the realization is coming to the fore, stated by a few astute analysts. In the last decade, the US-UK bank management wing of the cabal has created the USTreasury Bond as the global subprime bond. This is the result of magnificent persistent QE abuse, hidden derivative activity to produce false bond demand, foreign dumping of USGovt debt securities, astonishing debt explosion, pilferage of foreign bond holdings, and wickedly false AAA debt rating.

It is reported that the USTBond is the favorite asset used to finance the Belt & Road Initiative projects. Something like $2.5 trillion has been spent, toward the nearly $9 trillion in MOU commitment for the vast BRI project slate. This has occurred after the USTBond was the primary asset used to build the Siberian oil pipeline to serve Chinese demand. The irony of such Indirect Exchange (spent USTBonds as cash by third parties) is extremely important, yet nowhere repeated in the tilted Western financial press. All this has occurred while the US press calls the BRI projects frivolous but motivated to trap the member states in participation. Such pathetically shallow propaganda, equal in pathology as the claim that the USEconomy is robust. All measures is flashing red, worse than seen in 2006-2007.

The USTreasury Bond is the global subprime bond, and the outcome will be a much bigger bond market crisis than in 2008. It is often called the Everything Bond Bubble. The so-called financial stimulus has been actually hyper monetary inflation, which has destroyed the bond market, even if having prevented a USGovt debt default back in 2012. Legitimate bond investors have vanished years ago. There are no legitimate USTreasury buyers outside the US foreign vassal states. On many different platforms, the USDollar is being rejected, including the crude oil market. Next comes its rejection in the commodities market. By this is meant that the oil and commodity trade is much less dominated by the USD in trade payment. Such is motive to keep the wrecked bankrupted shale sector alive, so as to provide some added USD-based oil trade.

A perfect Storm is hitting the diverse Bond market. Witness a diverse set of very serious if not calamitous warning signals, many noticed but not well as a collection to signal imminent financial crisis. In the Jackass opinion, the Systemic Lehman Crisis has begun. Witness the many warning signals:

Enormous USGovt debt heading for over $1.2 trillion this fiscal year
A gigantic mass of BBB-rated corporate bonds now measured at $3.3 trillion
A badly inverted USTreasury yield curve with all points upside down
Heavy reliance upon derivative machinery to produce fake bond demand
Strained primary bond dealers who cannot find investors
Dwindling USFed cash reserves which worsen each month
Anomalies with respect to Interest on Excess Reserves
An official Fed Funds rate above many bond yields along the maturity spectrum.

The storm will grow much more intense, as the US Federal Reserve is forced to cut interest rates. Doing so will render great harm to the Money Market, which has almost no eyes upon it these days. The result will be more bond dumping both by US domestic funds and foreign official entities. The pressure put upon the derivative machinery will be fierce. Normally bigger debt results in higher bond yields to attract the required capital. But the United States Govt operates in reverse, trying to conjure up a bond rally with false narratives, fake demand, and utter horse puckey bonds wrapped on fancy ink and paper to sell. It will not work this time, since the new consensus is that the USGovt debt will never be repaid. The Jackass forecast of a debt default, made first in 2009, is coming into view at last. But the biggest effect of the cut rates in combination with a return to high volume QE monetary policy (reverse of tightening) will be felt in the Gold price. It will finally break north of the $1450 resistance level and seek higher level targets quickly. Already major billionaire investors are talking about a big important bull move in gold finally.

The Gold Standard is step by step coming into view. Consider it arriving on a four-legged table, each with strong legs. Given the steadfast vicious defense of the King Dollar and its hegemon court, all transformations and transitions must be gradual, subtle, and deep. During the last two years, the Jackass has regularly made the claim that the Gold Standard would see it initial implementation in the trade payment form. This has turned out to be the case.

GOLD TRADE NOTE – commercial global trade payment

The suspicions are ripe and rabid that China is using the Gold Trade Note (GTNote) in their crude oil purchases. Nothing can be proved, all done surreptitiously with large scale payments made, like with the Saudis and other Gulf oil monarchies such as Qatar and Oman. Significant RMB currency has shown up on the ARAMCO balance sheet in recent months. In fact, the volume exceeds the British Pound and Japanese Yen ledger items together. The RMB item was not present a year ago. It would make sense that China also uses the Gold Trade Note with oil purchases from Iran. These two nations are expanding their barter facilities, like with Import-Export Bank functions, and might underpin a growing volume with the GTNote itself. Their motive would be to advance the Gold Standard, indirectly in the King Dollar’s face. The entire Belt & Road Initiative (aka One Belt One Road) is to conduct trade outside the USDollar.

BASEL-3 RULE CHANGE – gold as countable asset in ratios

The rule change has opened the gates. The major central banks and the secondary central banks are deploying closely aligned financial firms to go out and buy Gold bullion while selling USTreaurys. This is all being done in secrecy, and kept off the balance sheet. In the meantime, the same dutiful agents of the banker cabal decry, denigrate, and deny the value of gold. They are grand hypocrites. These many central banks are collecting Gold for the big rise in its price, which might tend to save their fat hind parts during the crisis that builds. Their FX paper will be shredded while their newly placed Gold will enjoy a fast rise on the balance sheets. What they say is usually 180 degrees opposite for what they actually do. They want the public to be on the opposite side of their movements always.

PANDA BOND ISSUANCE – gold backed sovereign bonds

A bond priced in Chinese RMB terms defines a Panda Bond. They typically are for sovereign debt issuance, with some high profile corporate bonds at times. This is the newest of the four legs to the Gold Standard implementation. The astute analyst can infer a gold role in these Panda Bonds, which heretofore has not been admitted. This golden leg is analyzed in the June Hat Trick Letter to be posted very soon this month.


When Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir announced the cooperative venture to use a regional gold currency in order to settle bilateral trade obligations a few weeks ago, he put his life at risk. The very same initiative announced by Japan was quickly followed by the Fukushima attack, called an accident in the West, but called an attack all through the East. Expect the entire Pacific Rim to climb aboard the regional gold currency for settlement of trade payments, which has yet to take shape or to be named. The Jackass expects Malaysia to be joined by Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, even Taiwan, possibly Hong Kong. The key to this regional instrument for trade payment will be the absent participation of China. They might direct the movement from behind the curtain.

The next stage for global finance will incorporate regional structures and platforms. The entire community of nations is making major adjustments as preliminary preparation to the Global RESET, in order to minimize the shock, disruption, and potential chaos. Expect regional themes to dominate, as the Dual Universe comes into form. The East will prefer to trade in Chinese RMB terms, and often in Euro terms. The West will prefer to conduct trade in USD terms, but also British Pounds in trace amounts within the old colonies. A dichotomy has formed with great geopolitical division amidst hostility and trade friction, in addition to direct threats and slapped sanctions. The entire USFed QE initiative, coupled with unbridled $trillion USGovt debts, has fostered a rebellion during a long period of time marred by visible bond fraud. The rest of the globe is in active revolt, whose movement gains momentum each month. The transition period will involve the two dominant currencies at work: the USD and RMB. The fully implemented Gold Standard will require still more time, more cooking. The USDollar will not go away quickly or easily. It is well rooted in trade payments systems, in credit systems, in banking systems, in derivative contracts, and more. The entire Langley seven silos of corrupt illegal enterprises (narcotics, weapons, human trafficking, human organs) are based in the USDollar, with gargantuan savings accounts and business investments. They will not go away anytime soon, which dictates an interim period. The Dual Universe has been born, without much fanfare, as an evolution taking form during tremendous tensions and conflict. The Chinese RMB is to be the designated caretaker, used for ushering in the Gold Standard.

The United States must adapt to the Gold Trade Note in usage. It must contend with shortages and rising prices, following import supply interruptions. Weather related food supply shortages and trade tariffs costs are the newest ugly wrinkles. The US must launch a competing gold-backed currency. It must live with the reality of the lost global currency reserve and shared mantle of global leadership. It must share global power, while losing the exceptional status and its license for fomenting terrorism. It must ward off isolation. It must reindustrialize. It must pay down the $22 trillion debt. It must source gold for the new currency. It must face the risk of a stark reality in the New Scheiss Dollar, a Third World conception, provided the USGovt resorts to its usual fraudulent finances. My full expectation is that the USGovt will launch at a very late stage a fully fraudulent gold-backed Dollar. It will be fortified by fake gold bars (tungsten with gold clad) and by claimed deep storage gold. It will be supported by falsified auditing reports supported by deadly threats. After a year or more, the global challenge will be fierce for its null integrity and voided legitimacy. The USGovt has proved since September 2001, that it will execute all the corrupt decisions, make all the wrong steps, and be forced to take proper steps only at the point of a howitzer gun, or at the creditor table during a restructured bankruptcy. In fact, the bankruptcy of the USGovt Corporation is the new poorly kept secret.

Chicago Elects Communists As American Taxpayers Fleeing Illinios In Droves Reader 06/25/2019 (Tue) 13:30:38 Id: 612531 [Preview] No. 14943 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
American communists are very excited over the progressive shift happening within the Democratic party.

Kicking off its 100th anniversary celebration on Friday at the university of Illinois Chicago student center, Communist Party USA (CPUSA) vice-chair Jarvis Tyner "set the record straight" - telling a Chicago audience who greeted each other as "comrade" that "The truth is the communist party isn’t out to hurt you," adding "It will set you free," according to The Guardian.

"We are a party of action," said Chicago communist Pepe Lozano, who added "We are united... we are determined. We are raring to fight."

People are leaving Illinois in droves. Republicans blame the state’s high taxes and its unfunded pension liability, which tops $130 billion. Democrats believe it’s the state’s lack of investment in education and infrastructure.

One thing is certain: Illinois’ population has declined by 157,000 residents over the past five years, making it one of only two states — West Virginia is the other — to lose people over the past decade.

Illinois’ predicament is a perfect storm of declining manufacturing, stagnant immigration, declining birth rates, increasing taxes, increasing corruption, increasing regulations, high housing costs, and the continued draw of residents to the Sun Belt.

15,000 Mexican Troops Deployed To Help Save America From Third World Invasion Reader 06/25/2019 (Tue) 13:29:46 Id: fa67c4 [Preview] No. 14942 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

In an ongoing effort to slow the flood of illegal immigration into the United States and avoid tariffs from the Trump administration, Mexico has deployed approximately 15,000 National Guardsmen and soldiers to the border, according to AFP, citing the country's army chief.

Mexico promised earlier this month to send 6,000 National Guardsmen to its southern border, and has promised to build more migrant detention centers and checkpoints to catch and deter northbound invaders.

"We have a total deployment, between the National Guard and army units, of 14,000, almost 15,000 men in the north of the country," announced Defense Minister Luis Cresencio Sandoval while standing alongside Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

When asked if troops were detaining migrants to prevent them from entering the US, Sandoval said "yes."

"Given that (undocumented) migration is not a crime but rather an administrative violation, we simply detain them and turn them over to the authorities" at the country's National Migration Institute.

The policy is a shift from previous practice. The Mexican security forces had not typically detained migrants at the US border in the past.

Fleeing chronic third world poverty and brutal gang violence in their home countries, the Central Americans crossing Mexico mostly lack migration paper - AFP

Mexico signed a deal with the Trump administration on June 7, giving the country 45 days to show meaningful results in their efforts to counter the flood of migrants entering the United States.

Supreme Court Rules Policing Vague Statutes Unconstitutional, Laws Must Be Precise To Enforce Reader 06/24/2019 (Mon) 16:46:46 Id: 251dbb [Preview] No. 14935 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Justice Neil Gorsuch joined with the Supreme Court’s liberal bloc to deal victory for criminal defendants Monday, striking down a federal law that punishes gun crimes as unconstitutionally vague.

The law at issue authorizes heightened penalties for individuals who use firearms to a commit a “crime of violence.”

“Only the people’s elected representatives in Congress have the power to write new federal criminal laws,” Gorsuch wrote in the majority opinion. “And when Congress exercises that power, it has to write statutes that give ordinary people fair warning about what the law demands of them.”

“Vague laws transgress both of those constitutional requirements,” Gorsuch added. “They hand off the legislature’s responsibility for defining criminal behavior to unelected prosecutors and judges, and they leave people with no sure way to know what consequences will attach to their conduct.”

Monday’s case involved defendants Maurice Davis and Andre Glover, who were charged and convicted with robbery and conspiracy arising from a string of gas station robberies in Texas in June 2014. Prosecutors also charged the pair under the heightened penalty law because they brandished a short-barreled shotgun in the course of those robberies.

The Supreme Court said Monday that the definition of “crime of violence” was too ill-defined to be constitutional. Under the heightened penalty law, a crime of violence is any offense that “by its nature, involves a substantial risk that physical force against the person or property of another may be used.”


Conspiracy? Silicon Valley ADMITS Google Chrome Is Spyware Reader 06/23/2019 (Sun) 16:19:32 Id: aee892 [Preview] No. 14930 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
You open your browser to look at the web. Do you know who is looking back at you?

Over a recent week of web surfing, I peered under the hood of Google Chrome and found it brought along a few thousand friends. Shopping, news and even government sites quietly tagged my browser to let ad and data companies ride shotgun while I clicked around the web.

This was made possible by the web’s biggest snoop of all: Google. Seen from the inside, its Chrome browser looks a lot like surveillance software.

Lately I’ve been investigating the secret life of my data, running experiments to see what technology really is up to under the cover of privacy policies that nobody reads. It turns out, having the world’s biggest advertising company make the most-popular web browser was about as smart as letting kids run a candy shop.

It made me decide to ditch Chrome for a new version of nonprofit Mozilla’s Firefox, which has [a few] default privacy protections. Switching involved less inconvenience than you might imagine.

My tests of Chrome versus Firefox unearthed a personal data caper of absurd proportions. In a week of web surfing on my desktop, I discovered 11,189 requests for tracker “cookies” that Chrome would have ushered right onto my computer, but were automatically blocked by Firefox. These little files are the hooks that data firms, including Google itself, use to follow what websites you visit so they can build profiles of your interests, income and personality.

Chrome welcomed trackers even at websites you’d think would be private. I watched Aetna and the Federal Student Aid website set cookies for Facebook and Google. They surreptitiously told the data giants every time I pulled up the insurance and loan service’s log-in pages.

And that’s not the half of it.

Look in the upper right corner of your Chrome browser. See a picture or a name in the circle? If so, you’re logged in to the browser, and Google might be tapping into your web activity to target ads. Don’t recall signing in? I didn’t, either. Chrome recently started doing that automatically when you use Gmail.

Recruiting American Shills for Israel Reader 06/20/2019 (Thu) 21:27:08 Id: b96d48 [Preview] No. 14916 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Israel never loses an opportunity to promote what it perceives to be its interests. That any nation would do just that most of the time should surprise no one, but Israel is perhaps unique in terms of how assiduously it works at creating situations that favor it through the use of corruption of foreign governments and subversion of existing institutions. For most countries, the actions of a minority that seeks to advance the interests of a foreign nation would face strong resistance, but Israel manages to get away with what it does due to the presence of powerful and wealthy diaspora communities, most particularly in the Anglophone countries, but also in France.

The Israel Lobby in the United States has been subjected to some scrutiny thanks largely to the impetus provided by Professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt’s groundbreaking study The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy. More recent revelations have come from undercover journalism undertaken by al-Jazeera, which has demonstrated how British Jewish groups and parliamentarians have worked together with Israeli Embassy intelligence officers to remove public officials believed to be critical of Israel. Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, has been on the receiving end of a campaign to replace him for his alleged anti-Semitism solely because he has condemned Israeli oppression of the Palestinians. A second al-Jazeera investigation demonstrated how The Lobby, cooperating with the Israeli Embassy, has been controlling discussion of the Middle East in the United States, which should have surprised no one.

Europe indeed appears to be a hotbed of anti-Semitism, or so Israel and its friends would have us believe. Leaders in France, Germany and Britain feel compelled to frequently address the issue, making the equivalent of a war on anti-Semitism a principal objective of government. The United States has joined this effort, appointing a Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism whose job includes reporting other countries’ treatment of Jews and Israel.

The newest wrinkle comes under the category of Lawfare. It consists of hate crime laws that are directed against anyone criticizing Jews and, increasingly, Israel. In fact, any criticism of Israel is frequently being seen as a criminal offense, a trend that is also evident in the United States at the national, state and local levels, where Jewish groups have also been quick off the mark in claiming that anti-Semitism is surging. Freedom of speech in the western world has been diminished as a result.

Diaspora Jews are well entrenched in the media, which has enabled them to promote a narrative favorable to Israel no matter what it does, to include a repetitive dose of holocaust guilt that plays out from Hollywood and elsewhere in the media. The assiduously cultivated message for the public is that Jews are always the victims, never the aggressors, even when IDF snipers shoot Arab children and medical workers during protests.

Perhaps more seriously damaging are the technology thefts and deliberate export of American jobs to the Jewish state by Israelis and their diaspora billionaire friends, as well as general interference in and spying on the U.S. government at all levels. But perhaps the most outrageous initiatives engaged in by the Jewish state are the direct attempts to manage U.S. policies by subverting individual Americans who are or will be well placed to influence U.S. government decision making. It is well known how new Congressmen and spouses are treated to an all expenses paid trip to Israel by an affiliate of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is little more than a propaganda exercise designed to influence their thinking about what is going on in the Middle East while at the same time impressing them regarding the power and wealth of The Lobby. The pandering to Israel is frequently extreme.

Late last month, Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis, who has declared himself the most pro-Israel governor in the U.S., held a possibly illegal meeting of his state’s governing cabinet in Jerusalem.

A recent article in the Jerusalem Post demonstrates another aspect of how extensive Israeli efforts to infiltrate and corrupt American institutions to their benefit actually are. The article describes how “Close to 40 American cadets and officers wrapped up a two-week long trip to Poland and Israel on Monday, meeting with high-ranking military officers to learn about the Jewish State and the reality of its security situation. The trip, organized by Our Soldiers Speak (OSS), left a deep impression on the visiting service members who hail from the West Point Military Academy, the Air Force Academy, and the Virginia Military Institute, with some even voicing their readiness to fight and if necessary die alongside IDF troops.”

It was the third such visit to Israel by a group of representative military cadets. The travelers were treated to guilt first with stops at concentration camps in Poland. They then were subjected to the Israeli point of view through “high-level briefings from current and former policymakers and commentators from across the spectrum in the areas of security, strategy, international relations, law, politics, and more.

Make no mistake, the entire exercise was a scarcely concealed bid to set up what one might regard as the recruitment of future Israeli spies within the U.S. military. Such spies, who will plausibly be able to promote policies favorable to Israel, are referred to as “agents of influence.” Benjamin Anthony, the Director of OSS, admitted as much, saying that “This unparalleled experience enables American cadets to learn about hot-button issues and matters of utmost strategic importance in the Middle East firsthand. By forging bonds between the cadets and Israeli military officers, we are laying the groundwork for future understanding and productive interactions. We wanted to impact people who will be in leaderships positions a short time after the trip to Israel. All of them will be in command positions two or three years after this trip and they will be better informed about America’s greatest ally in the Middle East and the world.

The cadets, who apparently received no pre-trip briefings from their respective institutions regarding Israeli spying, naively accepted everything they were presented with and appear to have believed they were hearing the unvarnished truth about the Middle East. They even compared the Jewish state favorably to their own country. One cadet, Stephen Marn of the Virginia Military Institute, enthused that “Israel has so many enemies knocking on their back door yet the people in Jerusalem were happy, enjoying life… it was an amount of true patriotism (bullshit) that I don’t see in America today. I got pretty emotional.”

Marn, who will receive a commission in the U.S. Army, said that he can “absolutely” see himself fighting alongside IDF officers. “No question, without a doubt,” he said with a smile. West Point cadet Travis Afuso agreed, saying “Absolutely. We have a shared understanding of the threats, a shared set of values based on freedom and democracy and those are the things which will allow us to fight together and if necessary to die by each other’s side if that’s what it comes to. If that is what my country asked of us, if I was sent here, I would be proud to stand by the soldiers of the IDF.”

Afuso also admired how “Every soldier we spoke to had a deep need to serve. They understand that there will be no Israel unless people are willing to die for Israel. A lot of people in America need to understand that nothing is free and you have to work for it.

The comments of the cadets are regrettably similar to the effusions by U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Richard Clark, who has enthused that American soldiers are “prepared to die for the Jewish state” and also added that they would “probably” be under the command of Israeli Air Force General Zvika Haimovitch, who would decide on the involvement of U.S. personnel. Haimovitch commented “I am sure…we will find U.S. troops on the ground…to defend the state of Israel.” The two generals were referring to the fact that the U.S. already has airmen stationed permanently at Israel’s Mashabim Air Base in spite of the fact that the two countries have no defense agreement of any kind. The Americans, though few in number, would serve as a trip wire to guarantee that Washington would become involved in any war that Israel chooses to start.

The fact that future military officers are so naïve as to accept a dog and pony show presented by a foreign government that urgently needs uncritical American support is discouraging. The VIP tour they took was no doubt escorted by good looking young Israeli male and female soldiers, the food they ate was probably exceptional, and one might bet that the high officials they spoke to actually pretended to care about the cadets on a personal level. Once those cadets become military officers in responsible positions a few years down the road good buddy Benjamin from the IDF will show up with a dinner invitation to talk about old times. At dinner, Ben will ask for a favor. That is how an intelligence operation targeting certain groups or demographics works. Relax, we love you.

But what is really surprising is how the trip was organized and paid for. In spite of all the activity by the organization being focused on Israel and its interests, OSS is not Israeli. It is American, funded by the usual Jewish oligarchs and organizations. The “Our Soldiers” referred to are Israelis, demonstrating one again where the actual loyalty of some American Jews resides. OSS is somewhat similar to the odious U.S.-based Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, which routinely raises millions of dollars in gala events in Hollywood and New York City.

Both of the Israeli front organizations are IRS approved 501(c)3, a status normally granted to groups that are either educational or charitable. Donations are tax exempt, which means that the American taxpayers are footing part of the bill for organizations that are plausibly recruiting spies within the United States government and also supporting a military that is in no way allied with the U.S. It would be very interesting to ask a Congressman how that came about, but he or she would be too terrified to respond, while inquiries to Treasury would undoubtedly land on the desk of the same Jewish bureaucrat who granted the exemptions in the first place. Unfortunately, in Washington some things never change.

I've come to the point where I have pretty much given up any hope for America to be restored, it is almost beyond redemption... Israel owns our politicians and lobbies our government and they do what they want no matter how criminal or seditious. And anyone who joins the military is just another sucker who becomes a pawn for ZOG. And any student who takes massive loans to get into some commie college is a sucker who becomes a brainwashed debt slave for the central banks. And anyone who trusts in these institutional systems becomes cannon fodder, hosts fed to the parasites in control. What to do? What to do? I can only say prepare for the worst and try to become self-sufficient as humanly possible and stay out of any debt if you can manage... moving out of the US may not be such a bad option either, I have heard there are great places to move to where you can live in luxury retiring off just $100,000 in savings... sure, you'd need to learn another language and adapt to a different lifestyle but thats another option if you can afford it (if you don't mind living with a foreign culture that is, not all are bad people, most tend to be hard workers just like us)...

Where to? My ancestral homeland of Scotland is now Islam. Germany is now Islam. Sweden is now Islam. Many other European nations have been subjected to the "get American troops to agitate Muslim nations and then have them replace indigenous Europeans" agenda. At this point, I'm very attracted to the idea of learning Russian and moving to Russia just to be able to see more white skin than my own and my family's. But that's right. Putin's 2014 "holocaust denial" law. The same exists for Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Liechenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain and Switzerland.

I don't know, but if the same Jews own Russia then it wouldn't be such a good idea because the same will likely happen over there at some point, with or without Putin in power. However, I heard Putin is much more strict about immigration laws, he'll only allow asylum for those in need, and they're forced to comply to Russian laws and forced to learn their culture (really the way it should be in the West). There are not many white nations left, unfortunately, that are not being destroyed currently.

Iceland might not be a bad option, after all they did jail kike bankers for massive fraud over there and forgave the people of their debts (which is the way it should be in the West too at this point).

$$$ Big Pharma Blood Pressure Drugs Found Laced With Cancer-causing Chemical $$$ Reader 06/23/2019 (Sun) 15:15:41 Id: 545c02 [Preview] No. 14928 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
For years, we’ve warned that Big Pharma’s business model is a “repeat business” racket that profits from sickness and disease. We also know that cancer is a multi-billion-dollar industry that generates huge profits from the repeat business of cancer “therapies” such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Now comes news that a popular blood pressure drug sold by Novartis has been found to be laced with a cancer-causing chemical known as “dimethylformamide.”

“A pharmacy warned the Food and Drug Administration that it found a chemical believed to cause cancer in a widely used blood pressure medication, according to a filing from the federal agency,” reports CNBC.

The drugs are part of a popular class of prescription medications the FDA has been quietly recalling after finding them to be laced with cancer-causing chemicals. Those drugs reportedly include valsartan, losartan and irbesartan.

Even more astonishingly, this chemical contamination was discovered by Valisure, an online pharmacy that operates across America. Valisure is apparently running contamination tests on the various medications it sells, and it found that valsartan, the blood pressure medication manufactured by Novartis, contains DMF (dimethylformamide), a chemical known to cause cancer.

Here’s what else is fascinating: Valisure is to pharmaceuticals what the Health Ranger Store is to nutritional supplements and superfoods. Both organizations run in-house laboratories that use mass-spec analysis to ensure the clean nature of the products being sold. Valisure says about itself, “We’re the only pharmacy that chemically tests every batch of every medication we sell, at no additional cost.” This is exactly what we do for superfoods at HealthRangerStore.com, too. In fact, Valisure’s lab and our lab use the same instrumentation. In our case, we use ICP-MS for heavy metals tests and HPLC-MS-MS for glyphosate, AMPA, atrazine and pesticide tests. Valisure is using GC-MS, which is a gas chromatography version of mass spec analysis.

Both Valisure at our own in-house lab (CWC Labs) are ISO-17025 accredited laboratories. This is why when Valisure issues this announcement about a cancer-causing chemical in blood pressure medications, it gets my attention.

In a March 15 press release, Valisure described how it’s testing medications for cancer-causing chemicals:

Valisure, the first online Analytical Pharmacy, announced it has expanded its testing capabilities to screen samples from all batches of medications it dispenses for the cancer causing contaminants N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), and N,N-Dimethylformamide (DMF), the chemical solvent that has been implicated in the production of these impurities.

Valisure has filed documents with the FDA, requesting the agency recall the contaminated drugs. Yet right at this moment, pharmacies all across America are dispensing these drugs to patients whose doctors have told them they have a “blood pressure problem” that requires “treatment.”

Good! Hollywood Pedo Cult Leader Found Guilty of Child Sex Trafficking Reader 06/23/2019 (Sun) 15:14:40 Id: b1bb8c [Preview] No. 14927 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The New York self-help guru who ran a secretive organization that imprisoned women as sex slaves branded with his initials, has been found guilty of all counts in sex cult case.

Keith Raniere, 58, founder of the Nxivm cult was found guilty on all seven counts, including racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, forced labor conspiracy, sex trafficking and possession of child pornography.

He now faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

The Telegraph reports:

Five women who were charged alongside Raniere, including Smallville actress Allison Mack, pled guilty before the trial began and will be sentenced in September.

Raniere, a bespectacled and unprepossessing figure, began Nxivm(pronounced nexium) in the late 1990s, setting up in Albany, capital of New York state, what he describes as a self-help organisation.

About 17,000 people passed through Nxivm’s doors.

The group was pitched as an empowerment group, touting theories about femininity, victimhood, money and ethics – much of it influenced by Ayn Rand, one of Raniere’s favourite authors.

LOL! Trudeau Declares Climate Emergency, Then Approves Major Oil Pipeline Reader 06/23/2019 (Sun) 15:13:10 Id: 458a44 [Preview] No. 14926 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Canada declared a national climate emergency [$$$ carbon tax the goyim $$$] on Monday. The next day, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave the greenlight to a massive oil sands pipeline.

The House of Commons, with strong support declared climate change a “real and urgent crisis.” A week before, Justin Trudeau proposed a ban on single-use plastics, which, if implemented, would be the latest in a growing number of bans on plastic that could put multibillion-dollar bets on plastics and petrochemicals by the oil industry at risk.

But Trudeau has never really stood in the way of Canada’s oil industry, despite years of platitudes about addressing climate change. That was clear on June 18, when he gave the approval to the Trans Mountain Expansion (not for the first time), a $4.5 billion twin pipeline that would run along an existing line from Alberta to the Pacific Coast in British Columbia.

The Trans Mountain Expansion is one of a few high-profile pipeline projects that have run into serious trouble. Trudeau first gave the greenlight in 2016, but the project ran aground amid legal challenges from First Nations and environmental groups. Last year, Kinder Morgan, the original owner of the project, headed for the exit, threatening the cancel the project altogether.

Desperate to keep it alive – and the clearest example imaginable of how much the Canadian government depends on the oil industry – Trudeau moved to nationalize the project in mid-2018, buying it off of Kinder Morgan’s hands. A year later, here we are, with Ottawa once again trying to push it forward.

“This isn’t an either/or proposition. It is in Canada’s national interest to protect our environment and invest in tomorrow, while making sure people can feed their families today,” Trudeau said on Tuesday. Despite Trudeau’s plea, many see it precisely as an either/or proposition. Faced with a binary choice, Trudeau could either anger the oil industry, or anger First Nations and environmental groups. He chose the former, even though that was mostly expected.

“The approval comes as no surprise — the federal government owns the pipeline after all,” Scotiabank’s Rebekah Young wrote in a note. The Canadian government has vowed to build the project with a Crown corporation, then turn it over to private investors or some other company.

“Today’s decision is a positive development for Canada’s western oil sector, but it will have little impact on short term production,” Rebekah Young for Scotiabank said. The expansion will triple the pipeline system’s current capacity, taking it up to 890,000 bpd.

“However, with the earliest completion date only by 2022,” Young added.

IRGC Shoots Down US Spy Drone In Iranian Airspace As US-Israel Governments Call For War Reader 06/21/2019 (Fri) 16:31:46 Id: 56bb1c [Preview] No. 14922 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said it had shot down a U.S. “spy drone” over its territory on Thursday.

They said the aircraft had violated Iranian airspace, and that the incident sent a “clear message to America”.

The US military however has insisted the drone had been over international waters at the time, and condemned what it called an “unprovoked attack” by the IRGC.

The IRGC released a statement to the IRNA domestic newsagency, saying:

At the early hours of Thursday, the IRGC air force shot down an American spy drone, identified as RQ-4 Global Hawk that had violated Iranian airspace in the Kuh Mubarak region located at Hormozgan province, south of the country.

Northrop Grumman, manufacturer of the RQ-4 Global Hawk, describes the aircraft as a “premier provider of persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information.”

The commander of the IRGC says the drone’s destruction has sent “a clear message” to America.

Third World: US Agriculture Collapsing At Alarming Rates As Farm Industry Begs For Bailouts Reader 06/21/2019 (Fri) 16:31:08 Id: f39a8c [Preview] No. 14921 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
This year's corn crop has been absolutely decimated by constant rain and unseasonably cold weather. Trade wars have collapsed American exports of soybeans to China, as foreclosures and bankruptcies are now rippling through the Midwest's agricultural sector at disturbing speeds.

The US farm lobby said Tuesday that a third farm bailout would be needed if Washington grinds to a halt during the 2020 US election cycle limits President Trump from closing trade deals and reopening top export markets, reported Reuters.

American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall said if Congress fails to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), then other trade deals between the European Union and Japan could remain unresolved.

Farmers have already felt a tremendous loss of momentum in exports to China. They're now hoping countries like Europe and Mexico can purchase additional agriculture products.

"The deeper we get into this campaign season, the more difficult it might become" to get USMCA ratified or any trade deals done, Duvall said in an interview.

"Not because of the treaty itself, not because of the need itself, but just because of the rhetoric around the election," Duvall said.

Democratic lawmakers seized the House of Representatives during the 2018 midterm election - as they have routinely demanded changes to the USMCA trade deal.

Duvall said the Farm Bureau has indicated that key export markets have been disrupted at a time when low spot prices, high inventory levels, slowing economic outlook, and damaging weather across the Midwest, could culminate into a full-blown farm crisis on par to the 1980s.

President Trump has promised about $28 billion in farm bailouts in two separate rounds to farmers, who many are his base, to compensate for the loss of sales.

Texas Will Be Mexican Within The Next Decade As US Invaded By Foreign Occupation Reader 06/21/2019 (Fri) 16:30:15 Id: 294fa7 [Preview] No. 14920 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The gap between Texas’ Hispanic and white populations continued to narrow last year when the state gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident.

With Hispanics expected to become the largest population group in Texas as soon as 2022, new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed the Hispanic population climbed to nearly 11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.

The white population, meanwhile, grew by just 24,075 last year. Texas still has a bigger white population — up to 11.9 million last year — but it has only grown by roughly 484,000 since 2010. The white population’s growth has been so sluggish this decade that it barely surpassed total growth among Asian Texans, who make up a tiny share of the total population, in the same time period.

The estimates come as lawmakers begin to sharpen their focus on the 2021 redistricting cycle, when they’ll have to redraw the state’s congressional and legislative maps to account for population growth. And they highlight the extent to which the demographics of the state continue to shift against the Republican Party.

During the last go-around, which is still being litigated in federal court, Hispanics accounted for about 65% of the state’s growth. With about two years of growth left to go, their share of Texas’ population increase since 2010 reached 54% last July.

The Hispanic community is growing in numbers across the state. But 47% of Texas Hispanics now live in the state’s five biggest counties — Harris, Bexar, Dallas, Tarrant and Travis. Home to Houston, Harris County leads that list with more than 2 million Hispanic residents. But Hispanic growth since 2010 continues to be most significant in Tarrant County.

But while Hispanics’ numbers are growing the most, the state’s Asian community is growing the fastest.

Illinois Farmers Giving Up Planting Crops Due To Geo-engineering and Trade Wars Reader 06/19/2019 (Wed) 15:11:41 Id: 7ac1d2 [Preview] No. 14914 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Farmers in Illinois whose land has been thrashed by flooding have given up on planting. Instead of growing food, they decided to throw a party. And who could blame them?

The storms that have caused major flooding in Illinois have forced farmers to give up on their crops. Forecasts for even more rain also sent corn futures to a 5-year-high, bringing the food crisis ever closer to reality. Few farmers will even see a benefit from the higher prices because they can’t even get their corn planted in the ground.

Dozens of corn farmers and those who sell them seed, chemicals, and equipment gathered on Thursday at the restaurant in Deer Grove, Illinois, after heavy rains caused unprecedented delays in planting this year and contributed to record floods across the central United States, according to a report by Reuters. Rather than focus on the abysmal farming year, they decided to party instead.

The storms have left millions of acres unseeded in the $51 billion U.S. corn market and put crops that were planted late at a greater risk for damage from severe weather during the growing season. Together, the problems heap more pain on a farm sectorthat has suffered from years of low crop prices and a U.S.-China trade war that is slowing agricultural exports.

James McCune, a farmer from Mineral, Illinois, was unable to plant 85% of his intended corn acres and wanted to commiserate with his fellow farmers by hosting the “Prevent Plant Party” at The Happy Spot. He invited them to swap stories while tucking into fried chicken and a keg of beer in Deer Grove, a village of about 50 people located 120 miles (193 km) west of Chicago. – Reuters

Regardless of the news, it isn’t looking good for farmers in America. Already dealing with the political ramifications of the trade war, bankruptcies and suicides at record levels, farmers are now devastated by destructive weather. All things considered, farmers are expected to harvest the smallest corn crop in four years nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The agency last week reduced its planting estimate by 3.2% from May and its yield estimate by 5.7%. Farmers think more cuts are likely as the late-planted crop could face damage from hot summer weather and an autumn frost.

Because of the flooding and problems in the farming sector, there’s no time like the present to learn to grow your own food. It’s a vital skill when preparing for any catastrophe.

Nation of Debt Slaves: Americans Increasingly Rely On Massive Debt Insolvency To Get By Reader 06/19/2019 (Wed) 17:27:12 Id: 5cdb4a [Preview] No. 14915 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Student-loan debt hit an all-time high of $1.4 trillion in the first quarter of 2019, Experian claims. Considering that this is an increase of 116 percent in the last decade, it’s safe to say that young adults are starting their lives with a crushing debt burden. But student loans aren’t the only reason they are struggling: auto loans and credit cards are also hurting their pocketbook.

When compared to other generations, millennials are much less likely to have credit card debt. However, that doesn’t mean they are completely immune to it. As a matter of fact, most of the debt millennials between the ages of 25 and 34 carry comes from credit card use.

The fact that the government created the current student-loan crisis is a well-established truth at this point. However, what few people talk about is how credit card debt can also be traced back to government’s bad monetary policies.

Credit card companies offer cards with high-interest rates because consumers who rely on credit cards are more likely to default. In order to make sure they can cover their costs and make some profit, these companies attach high-interest rates to their products, even when competing with other companies to appeal to a greater audience.

But the fact that so many people rely on credit cards for basic purchases and even to pay bills says something else about the country’s economy: the dollar’s purchasing power hasn’t kept up with inflation.

After the 2007 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve’s go-to policy was keeping interest rates low and expand its balance sheet, effectively creating a greater reserve of U.S. currency and putting more paper money into circulation.

While those who put their hands on this money first, such as Wall Street junkies, do make a profit, everyone else loses in the long run as the government’s policy of expanding the money supply and artificially inflating the prices of resources, as a result, devalues the currency. If living life wasn’t as expensive as it is now thanks to the country’s misguided monetary policies, then perhaps Americans wouldn’t rely on credit cards as much.

It is true that consumers would also be less likely to rely on a credit card, to begin with, if they understood what it meant to their finances in the long run. Unfortunately, they lack basic financial literacy and often see credit cards as a part of life.

In the end, both ignorance regarding their financial decisions and the government’s misguided policies are creating a ticking time bomb.
