Russia’s spies red-faced after multiple plots uncovered

Moscow’s spooks left footprints everywhere, resulting in exposure not only by Western spy agencies, but by investigative websites and domestic media

By Giovanni Pigni October 17, 2018 1:16 PM (UTC+8)

More Johnny English than James Bond,” was how British Security Minister Ben Wallace branded the failed assassination of Russian double agent Sergei Skripal on British soil last March, for which UK authorities blame Russia’s military intelligence service the GRU, pronounced “Groo.” Given that even Russian media as partisan as Sputnik are now conceding that the two suspects fingered by London are, indeed, GRU officers, the Skripal saga is starting to make the feared spy agency look farcical. It is a major turnaround from the early days of the investigation. Then, British authorities pointed the finger, but failed to produce evidence. As a result, London’s version of events was roundly mocked by Russian ministers, spokespersons and media, which also produced a range of conspiracy theories. Most asserted that Russia was blameless, that it was Western powers attempting to blacken Russia’s reputation. Things look different now. Much more data has recently emerged that goes far beyond the Skripal case. It reveals malignant and, at times, sloppy GRU activities taking place around the globe – activities which would appear to extend well beyond the remit of a military intelligence organization. With incompetence by Moscow operatives being revealed not only by Western counter-intelligence, but even by investigative websites using open-source data, some of which has now been confirmed by Russia media, the derision voiced by Russian officials and pro-Kremlin media is ringing increasingly false. Agents’ IDs confirmed The clumsiness of the two wannabe Skripal assassins, first identified as Ruslan Boshirov and Aleksandr Petrov, appears remarkable. Skripal, their target, survived the poisoning. An innocent bystander died accidentally. And the alleged perpetrators were caught by police cameras. Russian authorities denied that the two suspects, whose images were released by the British government, were spies. “Of course, they are civilians,” announced no less a person than President Vladimir Putin – himself a former KGB officer – adding there was nothing “special or criminal” in their background. Shortly after, Boshirov and Petrov appeared in an interview with pro-Kremlin TV channel RT. There, they denied any involvement in the attack, defining themselves as simple tourists who had visited the English town of Salisbury simply to enjoy its cathedral’s architecture. However, their cover story was full of holes and their claims of innocence would soon be discredited. An investigation carried out by investigatory websites Bellingcat and The Insider named Boshirov and Petrov as, respectively, GRU Colonel Anatoly Chepiga and military doctor Aleksandr Mishkin. Bellingcat reporters found pictures of a man strongly resembling “tourist” Boshirov in the archives of a Russian Far East military school that specialized in “foreign language training and clandestine operations.” By cross-referencing passport data and using open sources databases, the reporters identified Boshirov as decorated GRU Colonel Anatoly Chepiga. Shortly after, the same investigative team uncovered the identity of Petrov, who reportedly is GRU military doctor Aleksandr Mishkin. A parallel investigation, conducted by The Daily Telegraph in London, reached the same conclusion. Looking for confirmation of these findings, Insider reporters traveled to Loyga, a remote village in the northern Arkhangelsk Region where Mishkin was born. There, they found people confirming that the person appearing in photos released by British police and participating in the RT interview under the name of Aleksandr Petrov was in fact “local boy” Aleksandr Mishkin. Russian spymasters must be kicking themselves, given the amount of data found by two open-source websites. And they must be kicking themselves twice, as related information was then confirmed by Russian media. More witnesses were tracked down by Kommersant reporters in Beresovka, Chepiga’s home village, where a local woman identified “Boshirov” as her former classmate. Similar reports were published by The Washington Post and the BBC Russian Service. According to Bellingcat sources, Mishkin and Chepiga played an active role in secret military operations in Chechnya, Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. Talking to Russian media Novaya Gazeta anonymously, Chepiga’s former comrades confirmed that the GRU colonel participated in operations leading to the annexation of Crimea in 2014, as well as in the special forces mission to rescue former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych the same year. According to data retrieved by Bellingcat, Aleksandr Mishkin crossed Russia’s Ukraine border several times, as well as entering the self-proclaimed Transnistrian Republic between 2010 and 2013. As a reward for their deeds, both agents were allegedly awarded the “Hero of Russia” medal – Russia’s highest honorary title – as well as large apartments in Moscow. What does the GRU do? Created by Lenin during the Russian Civil War, the GRU, or Main Intelligence Directorate, is one of three major Russian intelligence agencies, together with the successors of the old KGB: The FSB – the Federal Security Service – and the SVR – the Foreign Intelligence Service. Formally, the GRU was responsible for providing the Kremlin with vital military intelligence and guaranteeing Russia’s economic, political and military security. As part of the Russian military, the GRU answers to Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov and Minister of Defense Sergey Shoygu. The GRU’s role is essentially war fighting, hence it has played a prominent role in the “New Cold War” between Russia and the West: from coordinating a pro-Russia insurgency in Eastern Ukraine in 2014 to organizing an anti-NATO coup in Montenegro in 2016. Experts say the agency makes frequent use of “illegal spies” with no diplomatic protection, who are assigned to deniable tasks around the globe. GRU operatives also have a reputation for recklessness. According to Mark Galeotti, an expert on Russia’s security services, the GRU is characterized by “a relatively aggressive, military mindset, where accomplishing the mission is more important than avoiding risk.” The GRU’s ethos is exemplified in the assassination weapon used on Skripal for his treacherous collaboration with Western intelligence services: a weapons-grade nerve agent. The message is clear: No mercy for defectors. Putin has, himself, defined Skripal as “a traitor of the Motherland.” s have left a trail of evidence leading directly to Moscow.

The dailyReport Must-reads from across Asia - directly to your inbox It is a major turnaround from the early days of the investigation. etc. etc. etc.   According to political journalist Oleg Kashin, the GRU mission in Salisbury could have been orchestrated by “deep state” factions in the Russian government who are profiting from Russia’s worsening relations with the West. “International isolation and conflict with the rest of the world can be profitable from both political and economic points of view,” he suggested. The West fires back If worsening relations with the West is the goal, the GRU has been producing excellent results. On October 4, the Dutch Minister of Defense declared that four GRU spies had been caught attempting to hack the systems of the Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The OPCW had conducted analyses of the nerve agent used to poison Skripal, as well as the chemical attack carried out in the outskirts on Damascus on April 7, for which the international community blames Russia-backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. Despite the GRU’s hardcore reputation, identifying the four spies was not, apparently, a difficult task for Dutch counter-intelligence. While the GRU is trained in cyber espionage, they left multiple footprints. The Russians carried several telephones that were activated next to the publicly known GRU headquarters in Moscow. One of them even had receipts from the taxi which took them from the GRU offices to Moscow airport. A confiscated laptop contained data related to various nefarious operations – only some of which would appear to fall within the GRU’s remit of military intelligence activities. Records were found indicating that the Russians were involved in a secret operation in Kuala Lumpur, where they attempted to steal information on the downing of Malaysian airline Boeing MH17. Their footprint was also found in Switzerland, where agents tried to hack the system of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which oversees Olympic athletes. According to British and Dutch authorities, the four were part of a “clean up” operation aimed at fixing previous Russian mistakes. Britain’s ambassador to the Netherlands Peter Wilson said: “With its aggressive cyber campaigns, we see the GRU trying to clean up Russia’s own mess – be it the doping uncovered by WADA, or the nerve agent identified by the OPCW.” “This attempt to access the secure systems of an international organization working to rid the world of chemical weapons demonstrates the GRU’s disregard for the global values and rules that keep us all safe,” said the Dutch and British heads of state in a joint statement. Shortly thereafter, the US Justice Department joined the chorus of accusations with an indictment, identifying seven alleged GRU agents, who participated in 2016 election meddling as well as in various cyberattacks against WADA, USADA (the US Anti-Doping Association), FIFA and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. According to US authorities, the Russians intentionally aimed at “undermining the efforts of these organizations in guaranteeing fairness of the Olympics and other games.” The Russian Foreign Ministry’s combative spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, defined the latest allegations as “spy-mania” and accused Britain of turning GRU stories into “a hellish perfume mix” – referring to the perfume bottle allegedly containing the nerve agent used to poison Skripal. “The imagination of our British colleagues know no boundaries,” she snarled. And Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov denied that a “Hero of Russia” award was ever bestowed upon an individual named Anatoly Chepiga. Pro-Kremlin media also lashed out at the investigations. Politekspert and the Federal News Agency accused Bellingcat of publishing fake news. And Lev Korolkov, an SVR veteran, told Komsmolskaya Pravda that two “Heroes of Russia” would never risk getting their hands dirty on a poisoning mission. “It is absolute nonsense … the reputation of the country would be at risk,” he said. But despite official denials, the latest revelations about GRU activities dent the reputation of Russian spycraft – even more so, given that the GRU’s failed mission in the Netherlands led to the uncovering of more than 300 potential military agents, identified by The Insider and Bellingcat using publicly available car-registration databases. According to Bellingat, this could be “one of the largest mass breaches of personal data of an intelligence service in recent history.”

Last Clash of the Titans Part 8: The Mount of Assembly and the God of the Dead

October 18, 2018 by Derek Gilbert

The Bible is a chronicle of the long war by the fallen elohim, their demonic offspring, and human collaborators against the authority of our Creator. There is more information about this war in scripture than we’ve been taught. The concept of the mount of assembly was known to the pagan neighbors of the ancient Israelites. As far back as the time of Sumerian dominance in Mesopotamia, the third millennium B.C. (3000–2000 B.C.), it was believed the divine council led by the chief god, Enlil, met at his temple in the city of Nippur, the E-kur (House of the Mountain). Remember, Enlil himself was called “Great Mountain.” To the Canaanites in the time of the Judges, roughly 1300–1200 B.C., their creator-god El met with his “assembled congregation” (in Ugaritic, pḫr mʿd) on Mount Hermon in the “tents of El.” Although scholars would present this the other way around, the tents of El reflect the dwelling of Yahweh, the Tent of Meeting and the tabernacle, which housed the Ark of the Covenant for more than three hundred years before Solomon built the Temple on Mount Zion. You see, this whole war is about the mountain. The divine rebel’s goal is to establish his mount of assembly above that of Yahweh’s. That is still his greatest wish. (It may be the goal of many of these rebel gods, actually. The history of war between nations suggests that there may be as much competition between the fallen elohim as there is between the Fallen and Yahweh.) The prophets, psalmists, and apostles knew about this war for the mount. As you read the Bible with a careful eye, you’ll see references to other mountains that the Fallen hoped to establish as the har môʿēd. So, which mountain did Isaiah identify? According to scholar Edward Lipinski, El’s mount of assembly was probably Mount Hermon, [i] but that isn’t the one in view in Isaiah 14. The Hebrew phrase yarkete tsaphon, rendered “far reaches of the north,” is the key to identification. The phrase is used only three places in the Hebrew Bible, so looking at the other occurrences gives us important context. For example, in Psalm 48, the psalmist compares Zion to yarkete tsaphon:

Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised  in the city of our God! His holy mountain, beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth, Mount Zion, in the far north [yarkete tsaphon], the city of the great King. (Psalm 48:1–2, ESV; emphasis added)

How do we know the psalmist’s intent? Well, first of all, Mount Zion isn’t in the “far north.” Everyone in David’s day knew there was plenty of real estate north of Zion, even inside Israel. Second, while Zion is beautiful, it’s a bit short on elevation. It’s not even the tallest peak in Jerusalem. At 2,428 feet, the Temple Mount is almost a hundred feet lower than the modern Mount Zion (the former Western Hill was thought to be more fitting for David’s palace, so it was renamed Zion in the first century), and almost three hundred feet below the highest spot on the Mount of Olives. In short, the psalmist was making a point about theology, not geography. The “far north” in Psalm 48:2 refers to another cosmic mountain, a mount of assembly (har môʿēd) that everyone in the ancient world knew was the home of the palace of the king of the Canaanite gods, Baal: A seat was prepared and he was seated at the right hand of Valiant Baal, until the gods had eaten and drunk. Then Valiant Baal said, “Depart, Kothar-and-Hasis! Hasten! Build a house indeed; hasten! Construct a palace! Hasten! Let them build a house; Hasten! Let them construct a palace, in the midst of the uttermost parts of Zaphon. A thousand square yards let the house take up, ten thousand acres the palace! ”[ii] (Emphasis added)

Baal sits like the base of a mountain

Hadad [proper name of the storm-god, Baal] settles as the ocean,

in the midst of his divine mountain Zaphon,

in the midst of the mountain of victory.

Seven lightning-flashes […],

eight bundles of thunder,

a tree-of-lightning in his right hand.[iii] (Emphasis added)

Highlight this, at least in your mind: The mount of assembly of the divine rebel in Eden is the holy mountain of the Canaanite storm-god Baal. In other words, the rebel from Eden evidently manifested to later humans as the storm-god—Baal to the Canaanites and Israelites, Zeus to the Greeks, Jupiter to the Romans, Teshub to the Hurrians, and Tarhunz to the Hittites (and maybe even Indra to the Indians, Thor to the Norsemen, and so on). This is not only a key historical detail, it’s important to understanding end-times prophecy. Why? Because we know exactly where this mountain is. Mount Zaphon is known today as Jebel al-Aqra, a 5,600-foot peak in Turkey on the border with Syria, near the mouth of the Orontes River on the Mediterranean Sea. The Amorite kingdom of Ugarit was based only twenty-five miles south of Zaphon. Besides being the home of Baal’s palace, it was believed to be the holy mountain of Teshub and the place where Zeus battled the chaos-monster, Typhon. That conflict was very similar to Baal’s battle with the chaos god of the sea, Yamm, both of which echo the original story, Yahweh’s defeat of Leviathan.[iv] Zaphon was so important in ancient Israel that its name became the Hebrew word for the compass point “north.”[v] Now, let’s add a couple more bits of data to chew on. The fourteenth chapter of Isaiah is even more intriguing than it appears. First, let’s look closer at verses 18 and 19: All the kings of the nations lie in glory, each in his own tomb; but you are cast out, away from your grave, like a loathed branch, clothed with the slain, those pierced by the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit, like a dead body trampled underfoot. (Isaiah 14:18–19, ESV; emphasis added) What did the prophet mean by calling the rebel from Eden “a loathed branch”? Most English translations agree that the Hebrew word netser means “branch,” although a couple opt for “shoot.” The range of adjectives chosen by translators includes “loathed,” “repulsive,” “rejected,” “worthless,” and “abominable,” but they convey the same sense—something utterly detestable. But even allowing for differences in culture and language over the last 2,700 years, the phrase “loathed/worthless/abominable branch” seems odd. It is not at all clear what connection there could have been between graves and branches, abominable or otherwise, in the eighth century B.C. Scholar Christopher B. Hays has suggested an explanation: Perhaps Isaiah meant something different because the Hebrew word netser might not have been the word he used. [The] term is best explained as a loanword from the common Egyptian noun nṯr. Nṯr is generally translated “god,” but is commonly used of the divinized dead and their physical remains. It originally came into Hebrew as a noun referring to the putatively divinized corpse of a dead king, which is closely related to the Egyptian usage. [vi](Emphasis added) Considering what we’ve just discussed in the previous sections about the Rephaim, the “kings of the nations,” being the venerated dead kings of the Amorites (in other words, the “divinized dead”), Hays’ proposal rings true. Now, why a loanword from Egypt? The influence of Judah’s southwestern neighbor is evident in the book of Isaiah. The prophet warned Hezekiah not to trust in an Egyptian alliance to protect his kingdom (Isaiah 30:1–2, 31:1–3), which Isaiah called “a covenant with death” (Isaiah 28:15). However, recently discovered seals from King Hezekiah feature the image of a scarab (dung beetle), a sacred symbol in Egypt.[vii ] So, borrowing an Egyptian word would not have been unusual for Isaiah, especially given the poor opinion he had of Judah’s neighbor.  The adjective translated “abhorred” or “abominable,” Hebrew ta`ab, is significant. It modifies the noun netser, which would normally have a positive connotation. In this context, ta`ab may suggest “ritually impure.”[viii] If so, then Isaiah made a profound declaration here about the rebel from Eden: The “loathed branch” was actually an “unclean god,” and in the context of the Rephaim greeting the rebel upon his arrival in Sheol, it describes an unclean god of the dead—exactly the role assigned to Lucifer after he was kicked out of Eden.

By Sara Malm and Charlie Moore and George Martin For Mailonline Published: 05:57 EDT, 16 October 2018 | Updated: 10:37 EDT, 17 October 2018

Saudi journalist Jamal Kashoggi was butchered alive during an excruciating seven-minute execution inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, a source has claimed. The anonymous source claims to have heard an audio recording of Mr Khashoggi's horrifying final moments, captured on the journalist's own Apple Watch, shortly after he entered he consulate on October 2. The tape reveals Mr Khashoggi was dragged from the Saudi Consul General’s office to a table in a next-door study, where he was surgically dismembered, Middle East Eye reports. The audio recording is said to have captured the missing journalist's dying screams, before he was 'injected with an unknown drug' and fell silent. 'There was no attempt to interrogate him. They had come to kill him,' the source said. The source also claimed that Khashoggi's screams had been heard by witnesses downstairs as he was cut into pieces on the desk, and that the Saudi butchers had put headphones on to drown him out. One of the 15 Saudi men identified as part of the 'hit squad' accused of murdering Khashoggi is 'forensic expert' Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy. The source told Middle-East Eye Tubaigy can be heard telling others in this squad 'When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too'. This follows reports yesterday that local police have found 'certain evidence' that Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate, and Turkish officials have referenced an audio recording. They said that this evidence had been shared with several other countries, including Saudi Arabia and the United States. Investigators have reportedly been 'looking into toxic materials' at the alleged crime scene following a nine-hour overnight search which ended in the early hours of Tuesday. As new information linking the Saudis to Khashoggi's suspected murder emerged, the Saudi Consul General Mohammad al-Otaibi suddenly left Turkey on a commercial flight - just hours before his residence was searched by police. The disappearance of Khashoggi has put Saudi Arabia's international relations in the spotlight, in particular its trade with the U.S. President Trump said Tuesday that he has spoken to the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the kingdom continues to steadfastly deny any involvement in Khashoggi's suspected murder. Taking to Twitter, Trump said the Crown Prince, known by his initials MbS, 'totally denied' knowledge of the journalist's disappearance in a Tuesday afternoon phone call which followed a dinner between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Saudi leader in Riyadh. Speaking to Fox Business shortly before to phone conversation with the Saudi royal, Trump said he was waiting to hear from the Crown Prince to pass judgement, but admitted that 'If they knew about it, that would be bad.' Pompeo travelled to Riyadh yesterday to meet with King Salman and the Crown Prince to try to defuse the crisis sparked by Khashoggi's disappearance and the Saudis' reluctance to address what happened to him at the consulate. The Crown Prince told Pompeo that the U.S. and Saudi Arabia 'are strong and old allies. We face our challenges together,' before sitting down for talks. Today, Pompeo is due to fly to Turkey to hold talks with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu. On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump speculated 'rogue killers' were to blame after revealing the Saudi king denied any murder plot during a phone conversation between the pair last night. Speaking to reporters in the White House, Trump said King Salman's denial 'could not have been stronger.' 'He said it very strongly,' Trump said when pressed to say whether he believed the Saudi king. He added: 'It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers. Who knows?' President Trump has previously said he does not want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia - as some in Congress have suggested - because it would harm the US economically. However, on Monday, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow warned that the United States would 'take stern action with the Saudis if necessary.' There have been several reports this week that Saudi Arabia is preparing to admit that Khashoggi died in the consulate, but no such admittance has yet appeared. Previously, sources in British intelligence have been quoted by Reuters as saying they believe there had been an attempt to drug Khashoggi inside the consulate that culminated in an overdose. Earlier on Tuesday, U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet called for the immediate and 'absolute' lifting of diplomatic immunity enjoyed by any officials or premises in the Khashoggi investigation. Ms Bachelet said the 'inviolability or immunity' of people or premises granted under the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations 'should be waived immediately.' She said Tuesday the 'onus is on the Saudi authorities' to reveal what happened, and insisted 'no further obstacles' should be placed in the way of a quick, thorough, impartial and transparent investigation. Bachelet stopped short of calling for an international investigation. Also on Tuesday, Google and a number of banks, including HSBC, became the latest companies to boycott a business conference in Saudi Arabia next week. Google said in a statement that Google Cloud Chief Executive Diane Greene would not attend the Future Investment Initiative Summit starting in Riyadh on Tuesday. This was followed by statements from HSBC, Standard Chartered and Credit Suisse which said their chief executives will no longer be travelling to Riyadh for the conference. Many American companies, including Uber, Viacom and Ford, have pulled out of the three-day conference, known as Davos in the Desert. Britain's trade secretary Liam Fox and US treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin are still due to attend. THE DISAPPEARANCE OF JAMAL KHASHOGGI: A TIMELINE Here is a timeline of events in the disappearance of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a US resident, not seen since he entered the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul on October 2. OCTOBER 2 At 1.14pm (10.14amGMT) on October 2, Khashoggi is recorded entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by a surveillance camera. The image is published by the Washington Post. He was at the consulate to receive an official document for his upcoming marriage. His fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, accompanies him but waits outside. OCTOBER 3 On October 3 the Washington Post, for whom Khashoggi writes opinion pieces, raises the alarm, saying the journalist has not been seen since he entered the consulate. His fiancee camps out near barricades in front of the Saudi consulate hoping for news. Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin tells a news conference: 'According to information we have this individual... is still at the consulate as of now'. The US State Department says it is investigating. OCTOBER 4 On October 4, after an initial period of silence, Saudi Arabia says Khashoggi disappeared 'after he left the consulate building'. The Saudi ambassador is summoned to the Turkish foreign ministry. OCTOBER 5 Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman tells Bloomberg that Khashoggi is not inside the consulate and 'we are ready to welcome the Turkish government to go and search our premises,' which is Saudi sovereign territory. OCTOBER 6 A government source says Turkish police believe Khashoggi was murdered inside the consulate. 'Based on their initial findings, the police believe that the journalist was killed by a team especially sent to Istanbul and who left the same day,' the source tells AFP. Riyadh calls the claim 'baseless'. OCTOBER 7 Turkey seeks permission to search Saudi Arabia's consulate, and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, commenting for the first time, says he will wait for the outcome of the investigation before taking a decision. OCTOBER 8 Erdogan asks Riyadh to 'prove' its claim that Khashoggi left its consulate. US President Donald Trump says he is 'concerned'. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calls for a 'thorough' and 'transparent' probe by Washington's ally Saudi Arabia into the disappearance. OCTOBER 9 Saudi Arabia agrees to let Turkish authorities search the consulate, the Turkish foreign ministry says. Local media report on the possibility that Khashoggi was kidnapped and taken to Saudi Arabia. OCTOBER 10 English-language state broadcaster TRT World says Turkish officials believe the Saudis may have taken the consulate's CCTV footage with them when they returned to the kingdom. CCTV footage released by Turkish TV shows a van entering the consulate on October 2, before going to the nearby consul's residence. The Washington Post, citing US intelligence intercepts, says Saudi Arabia's crown prince ordered an operation to trap Khashoggi. The US State Department says it had not been tipped off about such an operation. Trump calls for explanations from Saudi Arabia, saying he has talked 'more than once' and 'at the highest levels' to partners in Riyadh. He says he has been in contact with Khashoggi's fiancee, who has asked for his help. OCTOBER 12 British entrepreneur Richard Branson suspends two directorships linked to tourism projects in Saudi Arabia. Several prestigious partners cancel their planned attendance at the end of the month at the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, a lavish conference dubbed the 'Davos in the Desert'. JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and Ford chairman Bill Ford are among those to pull out of the Riyadh event. OCTOBER 15 Turkish police investigators and prosecutors conduct an eight-hour overnight search of the Saudi consulate, taking away samples. Trump says he received a strong denial from King Salman of any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi. 'It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers. Who knows?' Trump tells reporters. The next day, US top diplomat Mike Pompeo arrives in Riyadh for urgent talks with the king and crown prince. A Turkish official yesterday claimed the consulate walls have been repainted since the alleged murder and said the Turks don't trust the Saudis not to obfuscate the investigation, reported the Middle Eastern Eye. Khashoggi, who was notoriously critical of Saudi Arabia's new Crown Prince, entered the consulate on 2 October to get documents to marry his Turkish fiancee - but has not been seen since. Turkish officials have said they fear a Saudi hit team killed and dismembered Khashoggi. Saudi Arabia has called such allegations 'baseless' but has not proved the writer ever left the consulate. Saudi Arabia said Monday that the Crown Prince has ordered an internal investigation of the disappearance, and an released a statement thanking Turkey for the co-operation in which they praised President Erdogan 'appreciating the fraternal, distinguished, historical and close relations between the two countries'. While Turkey and the kingdom differ on political issues, Saudi investments are a crucial lifeline for Ankara amid trouble with its national currency, the Turkish lira. Jeremy Hunt backs urgent probe into disappearance of Saudi journalist Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has confirmed his support for an urgent investigation into the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, during a meeting with his Turkish counterpart. Mr Khashoggi, a writer with the Washington Post, was reportedly killed while visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Turkish authorities claim to have audio and video recordings of the alleged murder. Mr Hunt met Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Monday and pledged support for a credible and thorough investigation into Mr Khashoggi's disappearance. Following the meeting, the Foreign Secretary said: 'The case of Jamal Khashoggi remains deeply concerning. The UK fully supports the Turkish investigation into the incident. 'We have been urging Saudi Arabia to co-operate fully with the investigation. There remain questions about the disappearance of Mr Khashoggi that only Saudi Arabia can answer. 'To that end, we welcome King Salaman's and President Erdogan's agreement of yesterday to establish a joint working group and the Saudi decision to ask the prosecutor general to establish an internal investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance and hold people accountable if the evidence warrants it.' A critic of Saudia Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Mr Khashoggi was living in self-imposed exile in the US and writing opinion pieces for the Washington Post before he vanished. Saudi Arabia denies any involvement with Mr Khashoggi's disappearance and has dismissed the allegations as 'baseless'.

Turkish Media Floats Claim Saudis ‘Evaporated’ Khashoggi’s Body with Acid

The much-discussed and often-delayed joint inspection of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by Turkish and Saudi officials formally began on Monday. Turkish media claimed one of the leads Turkish police investigated claimed Saudi forces inside the consulate killed missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi and “evaporated” his remains with acid. Turkish police investigating the case had said in a statement on Oct. 6 that 15 Saudis, including several officials, had arrived in Istanbul on two planes and entered the consulate while Khashoggi was inside. The group included a leading forensic expert, as well as Saudi intelligence officers and Royal Guards, according to reports. Turan Kışlakçı, head of the Turkish-Arab Media Association and a friend of Khashoggi, had claimed after the disappearance that the Saudis inside the consulate had already gotten rid of the journalist’s body after killing him. Habertürk website’s columnist Sevilay Yılman wrote on Oct. 15 that Turkish security forces started to look into Kışlakçı’s claim. “Police and the MİT [Turkey’s National Intelligence Agency] are now probing this claim seriously. They are looking into whether the body of Khashoggi was dissolved using acid,” she said. A media frenzy erupted on Monday over the arrival of three cleaning personnel arriving at the Saudi consulate just hours ahead of the Turkish inspection team. The reports did not indicate whether any other cleaning teams have worked at the consulate over the last two weeks, or whether this was a regularly scheduled visit. If the most lurid accusations from Turkish officials are true, it would seem very odd that a 15-man Saudi hit squad did not clean up after itself very thoroughly after performing an execution that could severely damage the future of the Kingdom. One does not wait for the maid service to arrive two weeks later to sanitize a murder scene. The Chicago Tribune took the appearance of the cleaning crew, which marched right past a horde of journalists carrying “mops, trash bags, and cartons of milk,” as symbolic of the low odds investigators will find any meaningful evidence within the consulate. The Turkish inspectors arrived Monday in unmarked police cars and said nothing to reporters as they entered the Saudi consulate. Turkish officials did not inform the media of the makeup of the Turkish team. Reports last week indicated the Turkish government wanted to search the consulate using luminol, a chemical that highlights traces of blood on walls, floor, or furniture. The problem facing the Saudis is the difficulty of imagining any forensic evidence that would exonerate them. If investigators find nothing inside the consulate, it will merely be taken as evidence the killers or kidnappers covered their tracks. The Tribune also commented on the backlash brewing in Saudi Arabia and allied Gulf states over the Khashoggi allegations: The Arabic-language daily Okaz wrote a headline on Monday in English warning: “Don’t Test Our Patience.” It showed a clenched fist made of a crowd of people in the country’s green color. The Saudi Gazette trumpeted: “Enough Is Enough,” while the Arab News said: “Saudi Arabia ‘will not be bullied’.” The Arab News’ headline was above a front-page editorial by Dubai-based real-estate tycoon Khalaf al-Habtoor, calling on Gulf Arab nations to boycott international firms now backing out of a planned economic summit in Riyadh later this month. “Together we must prove we will not be bullied or else, mark my words, once they have finished kicking the kingdom, we will be next in line,” al-Habtoor said. A boycott of Uber is reportedly brewing in Bahrain because Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi pulled out of the upcoming Saudi investment conference billed as “Davos in the Desert” to compare it favorably with the World Economic Forum.

Big Tech Snuffing Free Speech; Google's Poisonous 'Dragonfly'

by Judith Bergman October 17, 2018 at 5:00 am

If the big social media companies choose what to publish and what not to publish, they should be subject to the same licensing and requirements as media organizations. Google has decided it will not renew a contract with the Pentagon for artificial intelligence work because Google employees were upset that the technology might be used for lethal military purposes. Yet Google is planning to launch a censored search engine in China that will empower a totalitarian "Big Brother is watching you" horror state. Freedom Watch filed a $1 billion class-action lawsuit against Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter, claiming that they suppress conservative speech online. A Media Research Center report found that Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube stifle conservative speech and that in some instances staffers have admitted that doing so was intentional. Chinese officials prevented a journalist, Liu Hu, from taking a flight because he had a low "social credit" score. According to China's Global Times, as of the end of April 2018, authorities had blocked individuals from taking 11.14 million flights and 4.25 million high-speed rail trips. The internet, especially social media, has become one of the primary places for people to exchange viewpoints and ideas. Social media is where a considerable part of the current national conversation takes place. Arguably, big tech companies, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, therefore carry a responsibility to ensure that their platforms are equally accessible to all voices in that national conversation. As private commercial entities, the social media giants are not prima facie legally bound by the First Amendment to the US Constitution, and are free to set their own standards and conditions for the use of their platforms. Ideally, those standards should be applied equally to all users, regardless of political or other persuasion. If, however, these companies choose what to publish and what not to publish, they should be subject to the same licensing and requirements as media organizations. The current media giants' favoring one kind of political speech over another -- progressive over conservative -- and even shutting down political speech that does not conform to the views of the directors, certainly skews the national political conversation in a lopsided way that conflicts with basic principles of democratic freedom of speech and what presumably should be the obligations of virtual monopolies. The question of whether such discrimination against conservative viewpoints constitutes a breach of law is currently the subject of a number of lawsuits. In October 2017, PragerU, a conservative educational website, filed a lawsuit against YouTube and its parent company, Google, for "intentional" censorship of conservative speakers, saying that they were "engaging in an arbitrary and capricious use of their 'restricted mode' and 'demonetization' to restrict non-left political thought." PragerU claimed that "Google and YouTube's use of restricted mode filtering to silence PragerU violates its fundamental First Amendment rights under both the California and United States Constitutions," YouTube, for instance, restricted a video by a pro-Israel Muslim activist, discussing how best to resist hatred and anti-Semitism, as "hate speech". The US District Court Judge in the case, Lucy Koh, however, dismissed PragerU's claims because Google, as a private company, is not subject to the First Amendment. "Defendants are private entities who created their own video-sharing social media website and make decisions about whether and how to regulate content that has been uploaded on that website," Koh wrote. PragerU has appealed the decision. In August, Freedom Watch filed a $1 billion class-action lawsuit against Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter, claiming that they act in concert to suppress conservative speech online. Freedom Watch claims, among other things, that the four media giants have violated the First Amendment to the Constitution and that they have engaged "in a conspiracy to intentionally and willfully suppress politically conservative content." PragerU and Freedom Watch are not the only conservatives to have experienced suppression of their voices on social media. In April, the conservative Media Research Center released a report detailing the suppression of conservative opinions on social media platforms. The 50-page report, "Censored! How Online Media Companies Are Suppressing Conservative Speech," which looked at how conservative political speech fared on Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, found that the tech companies stifle conservative speech and that in some instances, staffers have admitted that doing so was intentional. The report found that Google showed a "tendency toward left-wing bias in its search results", and that Twitter (by admission of its own employees) had "shadow-banned" some conservative users. ("Shadow banning" means that their content did not appear to other users, but the account owners themselves had not been notified of this "banning" of their content). The apparent leftist bias, however, not only shows itself in the suppression of conservative speech on social media giants' websites. Censorship and selective presentation of speech has also led to unfortunate policy decisions by some of the big tech companies. Google, for example, has decided it will not renew a contract with the Pentagon for artificial intelligence work when it expires next year, because Google employees were upset that the technology they were working on might be used for lethal military purposes. Yet, according to leaked documents, Google is planning to launch a censored version of its search engine in China, code-named "Dragonfly," which will aid and abet a totalitarian "Big Brother is watching you" horror state. China, according to the Economist, is planning to become "the world's first digital totalitarian state." The Chinese government is in the process of introducing a "social credit" system by which to score its citizens, based on their behavior. Behavior sanctioned by the government increases the score; behavior of which the government disapproves decreases the score. Jaywalking, for example, would decrease the score. China is reportedly installing 626 million surveillance cameras throughout the country for the purpose of feeding the social credit system with information. According to Gordon G. Chang, Chinese officials are using the social credit system for determining everything from being able to take a plane or a train, to buying property or sending your children to a private school. Officials prevented a journalist, Liu Hu, from taking a flight because he had a low score. According to China's state-owned Global Times, as of the end of April 2018, authorities had blocked individuals from taking 11.14 million flights and 4.25 million high-speed rail trips. "If we don't increase the cost of being discredited, we are encouraging discredited people to keep at it," said the former deputy director of the development research center of the State Council, Hou Yunchun. He added that an improved social credit system was needed so that "discredited people become bankrupt". According to a legal expert at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing, Zhi Zhenfeng: "How the person is restricted in terms of public services or business opportunities should be in accordance with how and to what extent he or she lost his credibility.... Discredited people deserve legal consequences. This is definitely a step in the right direction to building a society with credibility." The goal, straightforwardly, is to control citizen behavior by aggregating data from various sources such as cameras, identification checks, and "Wi-Fi sniffers" so that Chinese citizens will end up being controlled completely. As Chinese officials have reportedly put it, the purpose of the score card system is to "allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step." It is, in other words, an excellent deliberate tool to suppress the human rights of the Chinese people. Although Google has refused to comment on the concerns about Dragonfly, the leaked documents indicate that this censored version of Google's search engine will help the Chinese government do just that by blacklisting websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest. It will also, reportedly, link users' searches to their personal phone numbers, thereby making it possible for the Chinese government to detain or arrest people who search for information that the Chinese government wishes to censor. "Linking searches to a phone number would make it much harder for people to avoid the kind of overreaching government surveillance that is pervasive in China," said Cynthia Wong, senior internet researcher with Human Rights Watch. Fourteen organizations, including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Reporters Without Borders, Access Now, the Committee to Protect Journalists, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Center for Democracy and Technology, PEN International, and Human Rights in China, have demanded that Google stop its plans for a censored search engine. They say that such cooperation would represent "an alarming capitulation by Google on human rights" and could result in the company "directly contributing to, or [becoming] complicit in, human rights violations." In a recent speech, US Vice President Mike Pence also asked Google to end Dragonfly: it "will strengthen Communist Party censorship and compromise the privacy of Chinese customers," he said. So, while Google claims it has moral qualms about cooperating with the US government, the company evidently has no moral issues when it comes to cooperating with Communist China in censoring and spying on its billion citizens with a view to rewarding or punishing them via opportunities in real life. Google employees, according to the Intercept, have circulated a letter stating that the censored search engine raises "urgent moral and ethical issues," and saying that Google executives need to "disclose more about the company's work in China, which they say is shrouded in too much secrecy, according to three sources with knowledge of the matter". Google is apparently all too eager to work with China on micromanaging its citizens, and there is plenty to work on, according to a recent Amnesty International report : "China has intensified its campaign of mass internment, intrusive surveillance, political indoctrination and forced cultural assimilation against the region's Uighurs, Kazakhs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups." Up to 1 million people have been detained in "China's mass re-education drive," many of them tortured, according to the report. Eight years ago, Google co-founder Sergey Brin -- who was born in the highly repressive Soviet Union -- at least had the decency to hesitate on (if not turn down) doing business in China if it involved censorship. "[W]e have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results," Google had announced two days before "company spokesman Scott Rubin started singing a different tune." Perhaps totalitarian Communist repression is of no consequence to Google, so long as it gets still more market share?

Trump vs. The Fed: When Markets Crash, Who Is To Blame?

Wednesday, 17 October 2018 04:03

After a certain length of time examining history in-depth, anyone who is honest and relatively objective comes to understand that most of what we are told about our past in the mainstream is completely fabricated. We learn that much of “history” is not about posterity or heritage and more about a continuous set of false narratives peppered with half-truths. That is to say, what we thought we knew is actually lies. Unfortunately, these lies can be complex, to the point that even many alternative researchers get caught up in their own biases to the point that they lose track of reality. Of course, this is what propaganda and 4th generation warfare is meant to accomplish; it creates a series of filters that thin out the crowd of truth seekers a little at a time. Those few who make it through to the other side might discover the bigger picture, but when they turn around to explain what they have seen there’s hardly anyone left to listen. Intricate propaganda narratives are actually rooted in simple archetypal memes that resonate with the average person’s sense of story. Think of mainstream historical events as more of a screenplay with a well-practiced set of beats, and the people who draft this screenplay intend we the public to act as an audience with limited participation. Our jobs are merely to continue providing fuel for the machine with our labor until the machine no longer needs us, and to continue perpetuating the fantasies that the machine conjures up as news feed fodder. There are many actors that read lines from the historic screenplay and act out elaborate scenes meant to emotionally manipulate the masses. These actors play the roles of politicians and leaders of state. They are banking moguls and corporate heads. They are media gatekeepers and manufactured celebrities. If a person sits in what appears to be a position of power, they are seldom what they seem on the surface. I’m explaining this conundrum because a lot of people out there claim such things are obvious, yet they continue to fall for the same Kabuki theater over and over again. I am also explaining it because the subject matter of this article is a perfect example of the 4th generation warfare narrative in action. The latest escalation of what I consider an inevitable battle between the Trump Administration and the Federal Reserve is not at all what the mainstream or much of the alternative media think it is. I have examined Donald Trump’s dubious background and associations thoroughly in multiple articles. To summarize, Trump has been tied to globalist financiers and think tank members for at least 25 years. He has nominated and/or stacked his cabinet with those same ghoulish people over the past two years. To illustrate the severity of the problem, I suggest readers look into people like Wilber Ross, the Rothschild banking agent that bailed Trump out of his considerable Taj Mahal casino debts decades ago, who is now the Commerce Secretary. Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council and an adviser to Trump is a former economist for the New York Federal Reserve. Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary, was a prominent member of Goldman Sachs. During the election, Trump’s rhetoric surrounding the banking takeover of Washington was highly critical, yet he now associates closely with banking alumni that many conservatives would consider suspicious or untrustworthy in their motives. Some cycle out and are replaced with yet more banking elites. At any given time, there are always several financial elitists looming in the halls of the White House and most of them are linked to organizations with a decidedly globalist mission. This fact should make it clear to anyone with common sense that when Trump “goes to war” with the bankers in his speeches, what he is producing is theater. So, when I read the latest news that Trump is calling the Federal Reserve “crazy” and blaming them for the most recent stock market plunge in October, I have to point out that this is likely even more theater. However, it is theater with a purpose. In February 2017 in my article ‘In A Battle Between Trump And The Fed, Who Really Wins?‘, I outlined why a conflict between Trump and the central bank would actually HELP globalists in their goal of dethroning the U.S. dollar as the world reserve in a way that makes it appear like a random catastrophe of political chaos rather than a planned event. This would clear the way for a new single world currency system which some internationalists refer to as the “global economic reset.” In my article ‘Trump vs The Fed: America Sacrificed At The NWO Altar‘, published in July, I went even further and predicted a choreographed clash between Trump and the Federal Reserve. Now it appears that this clash has been initiated. The fact that the mainstream financial media has suddenly reverted to panic mode over a drop of a couple of thousand points in the Dow Jones should give people pause. What this showcases is a change in tone to previous declines in which the media shrugged off or dismissed falling equities as a mere “correction.” Today, outlets like Bloomberg talk of “crisis.” As I have noted in the past, the mainstream media and central banks do not warn of crisis far in advance like the alternative media. Rather, they warn of crisis mere weeks or months in advance; too late for the average person to do much to prepare. The recent change in attitude by the mainstream suggests that the next stage of the collapse that has been ongoing since 2008 is here. For the globalists this is a precarious time. If a crash occurs in a narrative vacuum the public will naturally blame the most obvious culprits — namely the central banks and international banks. They are the obvious culprits because they have essentially admitted to economic sabotage in the past. Ben Bernanke admitted that the Fed was responsible for the drawn-out pain of the Great Depression. Alan Greenspan admitted to Fed culpability for the bubble of the 1990s and the derivatives bubble of 2008. In 2012, Jerome Powell warned that when the Fed decided to finally institute interest rate hikes and balance sheet cuts, stimulus addicted markets would crash. Today as Fed chairman he is implementing those exact polices knowing exactly what the consequences will be. The problem is, once again, false narrative. Central bankers admit to playing a large part in historic crashes, but they pretend as if they were “unaware” of the bigger dangers at the time. They also exploit scapegoats as a means to divert public attention away from their activities. For the Great Depression, Bernanke admits that the Fed’s tightening actions into economic weakness prolonged and increased the horror of the Great Depression, yet the Fed’s official position is to blame the existence of the gold standard. For the derivatives bubble, central bankers admit to a “lack of foresight” on the part of the Fed, but still blame “deregulation” as the primary cause of the crash of 2008. For the next phase of economic decline in 2018, they have a new scapegoat; a scapegoat that is HELPING them — Donald Trump. As I warned in March of this year, Trump’s presidential career has so far closely (and strangely) matched that of Republican president Herbert Hoover just before the crash of 1929. Trump has implemented major tax cuts, infrastructure spending programs and major tariffs all on the heels of economic instability, just as Hoover did. And much like at the beginning of the Great Depression, the Federal Reserve is also hiking rates as the rest of the economy falters. Trump is providing perfect cover for the banking elites to continue pulling life support from the system and imploding a 10-year bubble in stocks and bonds. His trade war can be used in numerous ways to offset any blame from the central banks as they deliberately demolish equities and other markets. The fact that Trump has readily taken credit for epic stock market gains the past two years also aids the Federal Reserve greatly. During his campaign, Trump warned that stock markets were “a big bubble” created artificially by the Fed’s low interest rate manipulation. Now, Trump attacks the Fed as crazy for raising interest rates and deflating that same bubble. Trump is playing a special role in the globalist screenplay — that of the bumbling villain; the guy who had too much hubris and destroyed everything. If the conflict between the private Federal Reserve and the White House continues, conservatives may get the outcome they always wanted, but with many strings attached. As the farce goes forward, expect foreign involvement in U.S. Treasury Bonds and the dollar to fall even further. Ten years ago, an audit or shutdown of the Fed could have reversed America’s course for the better. Now, I believe that the globalists WANT to sacrifice the Fed and the dollar. Why? As noted in the Rothschild run The Economist in 1988 in their article on a global currency launch in 2018, the US and the dollar must be diminished in order to make way for a new model led by the International Monetary Fund. The Fed is nothing more than a branch of a franchise, and if closing it down wins the globalists more power in the long run, that is exactly what they will do. The IMF and BIS are being set up as the new "global Fed", and the game is about to change dramatically. Trump’s scripted follies are not only setting the stage for a market crash which he and conservatives will be blamed for instead of the banking elites, they are also setting the stage for the death rattle of the dollar. Trump's fistfight with the central bank will create considerable doubt in US debt as well as the dollar's world reserve status. This perfectly timed chaos is advantageous to globalists, whose objectives include an economic reset and a new monetary system; Trump's actions are not part of some heroic battle for the Republic. To answer the original question of who is to blame for the coming disaster — BOTH the Fed and Trump are to blame, as they are both playing their parts in the same false narrative.

THE PARTY IS OVER

October 18, 2018 by Egon von Greyerz

“What a difference a day makes”! Well we didn’t get the sun and the flowers like in Dinah Washington’s song but more like storm and showers. For the ones who don’t remember Dinah, Amy Winehouse made a more recent version of the song. Last week I warned investors again, in the strongest tone possible, of the risks in markets. So what triggered it? Was it the Fed’s interest rise? Or was it the trade war with China? Or maybe it was Kavanaugh? We mustn’t believe that we can predict the exact time something will happen. Nor do we know what will cause a turn in markets. But what we have known for quite some time is that markets have been extremely vulnerable to a turn. Last week I said in my newsletter: “With 19 Hindenburg Omens since August (a very bearish technical signal), the US market looks extremely vulnerable. So do most major markets around the globe after one of the longest and steepest bull markets in history. Whether or not we will see a final exhaustive up move or not is irrelevant. Risk is at a maximum and we are very near the start of one of the biggest secular bear markets in history. Now is the time to be safe rather than sorry.” And so it happened. The Dow fell 1540 points in two days before it closed at a two day fall of 1100 points. After the December – January high, the Dow has spent 10 months to just reach a new high. But that was it!

As you can clearly see the evil in the world is almost fifty-fifty, my word has shown you that before, so that should not be a surprise.  For I have said that two shall be standing in the field and one shall go and one shall remain, that is fifty-fifty, and it has got to that place, that also means that the end is very, very near.  So you will still have half of the world that desires to do evil and half of the world that desires to do good, but only about thirty percent are true Christians. etc.

The Left’s Religious War Against America

What’s really driving leftist anger and hatred.

October 12, 2018 Daniel Greenfield

69% of progressives are ashamed to be Americans, but 63% are proud of their political ideology instead. The majority don’t attend religious services, but 73% list politics as their preoccupation. Religiously unaffiliated voters are the most excited about attending political rallies and marches. Numbers from one poll showed that, "religiously unaffiliated Democrats were more than twice as likely to have attended a rally within the past 12 months compared with their religious peers" and were "significantly more likely to have contacted an elected official or to have donated to a candidate or cause" or "bought or boycotted a product for political reasons or posted political opinions online". They’re also far more likely to be angry over Trump than Democrats who do have religious beliefs. Studies may label them secular, but they are animated by all the convictions of a political religion. Political participation gives their lives meaning. It offers them the opportunity to save the world. Republicans are not just political opponents, but religious foes who threaten the planet’s survival. And what do their political beliefs tell them about the traditional great questions answered by religion?86% believe that people’s outcomes are beyond their control. 75% believe that outcomes are caused by luck and circumstance. 94% are convinced that government should take more responsibility for people. They believe that life is arbitrary and meaningless, except for the order imposed by government. Government is their god and politics is their religion. Political power is their creed and their cult. These are some of the numbers emerging from, “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape” and a PRRI poll. Most of what it tells us, we already know. The self-described progressives are more likely to be white and wealthy. They believe in speech codes, white privilege and sexism. And their beliefs are wildly out of step with the national average which usually falls somewhere in the middle. While the left utterly dominates the national discourse through its control of the media, academia and the culture, its views, presented as unambiguously correct on campuses, in magazines and by celebrities, are extreme and shared by at best half the population. Half the country believes that immigration is a problem, that paranoia over sexual harassment is a problem, and that oversensitivity to Muslims has gone too far. The vast majority also believes that political correctness is a threat. 88% of American Indians, 87% of Hispanics, 82% of Asians, 79% of white people and 75% of black people believe that political correctness is a problem. Only 30% of progressives do. That's what skews the numbers for white respondents below those of other minority groups on political correctness. Despite their phony representationist gimmicks, the left is as white as a Bernie Sanders rally. The problem isn’t just that leftists disagree with the rest of the country on free speech. It’s that they use their cultural power to control speech by manufacturing a fake consensus using the media and by imposing actual speech codes on campuses and in workplaces that punish the speech of the majority. Political correctness isn’t the response of a tolerant majority, nor of a persecuted minority. It’s the cynical ploy by wealthy white leftist activists to protect the illusion that they are the majority. That’s not new. Every totalitarian regime does this. But that’s not what America is supposed to be. Speech control is crucial to the left because its real power, like that of every tyranny, lies in controlling the machinery of discourse. And as long as the skinny arm of the left holds the lever, it can go on lying to the rest of the country, not just with the manufactured consensus of their beliefs, which are actually baked in lefty think tanks in Washington D.C. and spread through the bicoastal media, but about itself. The left tells Americans that it is a grass roots movement, when it’s actually an organized infrastructure of groups funded by billionaires through a secretive and complex methodology that makes the mob look honest. It tells Americans that the media is a non-partisan public service, when it’s actually the communications arm of the left. But, most of all, it tells Americans that it’s the majority. And that’s a lie. Populists scare the left, not because populism has anything to do with fascism. The Nazis were declining in popularity when Hitler played on the fears of the political establishment to get a position he was never elected to. Then he used fake news, political terror and a manufactured crisis to build up his power and suppress the political opposition. Like the left, Hitler feared the public. The Nazi rallies and marches were meant to create the illusion that they represented an unquestioned majority. Most Germans shrugged and went along. As most Americans shrug and accept whatever lies the media tells them, even while knowing that they are lies. Every time the left loses an election, its big lie totters. If the left truly represents the majority of Americans, why are so many Republicans in office? The answer invariably involves conspiracy theories. Racist Republicans disenfranchise minority voters. The Russians hacked our election. Fake news spread on Facebook rigged the election. The Supreme Court rigged the election. Someone stole the votes. The routine claims that the elections that Republicans win are invalid (while those that Democrats win represent a firm popular mandate) aren’t just bad faith. They’re the emperor’s invisible pants. The left can’t risk the belief that it really lost an election to take hold. That risks exposing its marginal status. Republicans can lose an election and still believe that the majority is on their side. The left lacks that equanimity because it knows that it is a minority faking its majority status with fake news. Elections are not an exercise in politics for them. No more than they are for their Muslim Brotherhood allies. They are referendums on their religion. They are the arbiters of their convictions and their faith. Trump Derangement Syndrome, like Bush Derangement Syndrome before it, not to mention the Reagan, Goldwater and Nixon syndromes, was felt most keenly on the secular left. It was the outcry of a messianic cult whose passions and hatreds operate within the political arena, but are not truly political. The ugly hysteria of the Kavanaugh hearings had no place in normal political discourse. Nor do the barely masked incitements to violence and tribal invocations of warfare being broadcast by the left. But these behaviors do not emerge from mere political convictions, but from politics as religion. References to the civil war abound in many analyses of current events. I have written multiple articles from that perspective. But a more accurate model may not be the American civil war, but European religious civil wars which were animated not by mere politics, but by politics as a means of salvation. American politics was built for the negotiation of interests. Its separations of church and state were meant to keep the country from being riven by religious factions and the violent passions of faith. But the Founders had not properly anticipated how politics might become its own religion. Even though the events of the French Revolution had made it clear that the age of political religion had arrived. Since then, the left has made a mockery of the separation of church and state by embedding its beliefs into the regulations, civic values and corporate policies of much of the country. While official religions have been forced out of political and civic life, their place has been taken by the cult of the left. The left has always been a pseudo-religious movement. But in America, it remained a marginal one, able to make occasional inroads in limited areas, while being barred from real influence by two big parties. The figures from the Hidden Tribes study and PRRI poll show the extent to which a sizable portion of the Democrats have been transformed from a partisan faction into a fanatical messianic cult. And that cult is using all its power and influence to wage a religious war, not just against its opponents, but on America. The fundamental creed of the left is that America is inherently evil. It can only be redeemed by the rule of the left. Its struggles for power are not just partisan contests, but a struggle against evil. America is an oppressive imperialist system of slaves and nuclear bombers, whose industries are destroying the planet, whose patriarchy has raped every other woman in the country, and whose racism is killing black children every day. This is what the left believes. Is it any wonder that it hates America? And is it any wonder that the left cannot be compromised, appeased or reasoned with? Leftists will fight to impose their values on America with trickery and lies, with elections and fake news, if they can. But if they fail politically, they will turn to political violence and terror. That is the religious civil war that has come to Washington D.C. It is not a civil war of territories, but of convictions. Its causes are not to be found in economics or policies, but in the fanatical beliefs of a cult.

Another migrant caravan heads north

Group of 1,600 shouts at Guatemala border: 'We have rights'

Published: 3 days ago

A caravan of migrants from Central America who say they are fleeing poverty and gang violence arrived at the Guatemala border Monday, hoping they eventually will reach the United States. Guatemalan authorities have warned they will not let the group pass, but the migrants sang the national anthem, prayed and chanted, “Yes, we can,” the Associated Press reported. “We have rights,” they shouted. Among the migrants are families with infants and toddlers. They spent Sunday night at a community center in the town of Ocotepeque, Honduras, AP said in a previous report. The group has grown in size as it has made its way north, with many who already had planned to leave Honduras joining in, reasoning that traveling in large numbers would be safer. AP said the caravan formed one day after Vice President Mike Pence urged the presidents of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to persuade their citizens to stay home. “Tell your people: Don’t put your families at risk by taking the dangerous journey north to attempt to enter the United States illegally,” said Pence. When a similar caravan set out from Honduras in the spring, President Trump threatened to withdraw foreign aid from Honduras and from any country that allowed transit for a similar caravan.

U.N. ups Palestinians' status, makes it head of Group of 77

The United Nations considers the Palestinians to be a non-member state, but grants it many of the same privileges that it would award a member state.

By Tovah Lazaroff October 17, 2018 01:20

The UN General Assembly voted 146-3 to place the “State of Palestine” at the head of a group of 134 member nations, known as the Group of 77 and China. There were 15 abstentions. Israel, the United States and Australia opposed the move. The 15 nations that abstained were: Andorra, Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, The Czech Republic, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Honduras, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Monaco, Poland, Slovakia and Tuvalu. After the vote, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said, “The Palestinians are not a UN member state or any state at all. The United States will continually point that out in our remarks at UN events led by the Palestinians. “Today’s UN mistake undermines the prospects for peace by encouraging the illusion held by some Palestinian leaders that they can advance their goals without direct peace negotiations. In fact, today’s vote does nothing to help the Palestinian people,” Haley said. Her office added, “The United States does not recognize a Palestinian state, notes that no such state has been admitted as a UN member state, and does not believe that the Palestinians are eligible to be admitted as a UN member state.” US Deputy UN Ambassador Jonathan Cohen told the General Assembly that the US plans to remind the UN that the Palestinians have not achieved statehood. His words were consistent with the United States position that recognition of Palestinian statehood should occur only after an agreement is reached that ends the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. JPOST VIDEOS THAT MIGHT INTEREST YOU: Cohen spoke against Palestinian attempts to unilaterally gain statehood recognition at the UN, including through its quest to chair the G77. “The United States has long opposed enhancements of Palestinian status at the United Nations. We voted against the General Assembly’s resolution designating the Palestinian delegation as a nonmember observer state. We have consistently and formally objected to Palestinian accession to treaties to which we are a party. That is because, as we said, the United States does not recognize that there is a Palestinian state, and we do not consider ourselves to be in a treaty relationship with the ‘State of Palestine,’” Cohen said. “For decades, the United States has been committed to achieving a comprehensive end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We have been clear that only through direct negotiations between the parties can the Israelis and Palestinians achieve the peace that they both deserve,” Cohen said. “That remains our goal today. We cannot support efforts by the Palestinians to enhance their status outside of direct negotiations,” Cohen said. An Israeli representative spoke against the move and warned that placing the Palestinians at the head of the group exploited an organization that was otherwise designed to advance the agenda of developing nations. “The established rules of procedure of the UN are important. Constant attempts to keep changing the rules of procedure to accommodate one observer delegation in a manner that would not be tolerated for any of the member states only weakens this institution,” Israel said. Germany, which supported the measure, clarified that its support for a Palestinian chairman for the G77 was not a statement of its support for UN recognition of Palestinian statehood. “Our vote today should not be construed as a vote in recognition of the state of Palestine. It should not be construed as a statement on its status in the United Nations,” Germany said. The Netherlands and the United Kingdom issued similar statements. “This vote today represents multilateralism at its best,” The Palestinian Authority Ambassador Riyad Mansour, said. The UN considers the Palestinians to be a nonmember state but grants it many of the same privileges that it would award a member state The G77 has recognized Palestine as a member state since 1976. However, a special vote was needed to place it at the head of the group, because of Palestine’s nonmember status. The General Assembly placement on Tuesday afternoon in New York of Palestine at the head of the largest intergovernmental organization of developing countries enhances Palestinian stature at the UN, even though it does not imply any change in status.

Somalia: US air strike 'kills 60 al-Shabab fighters'

Friday's air raid in Mudug province is the deadliest US attack since a November 2017 attack, which killed about 100. 16 Oct 2018

A US military air raid against the al-Shabab group in Somalia - one of its deadliest in nearly a year - has killed about 60 fighters, according to US military officials. The air attack, which was launched on Friday, occurred near the al-Shabab-controlled community of Harardere in Mudug province in central Somalia, the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) announced on Tuesday. According to its assessment, no civilians were killed or wounded, the statement said. It was the largest US air raid since a November 2017 attack, which killed about 100 al-Shabab fighters. The US military has carried out more than two dozen air raids, including drone attacks, this year against the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab. Somalia on Sunday marked the first anniversary of al-Shabab's deadliest attack, a truck bombing in Mogadishu that killed well over 500 people. An AFRICOM spokesperson said the air raid had no link to the anniversary. The United States has increased its military presence in Somalia since early 2017 to about 500 personnel after President Donald Trump approved expanded military operations. Al-Shabab continues to hold parts of the country's south and central regions after being chased out of Mogadishu several years ago. The group, estimated at several thousand fighters, still carries out deadly attacks against high-profile targets such as hotels and checkpoints in the capital and other cities. It also remains a threat in parts of neighbouring Kenya. SOURCE: AP news agency

State Department provided 'clearly false' statements to derail requests for Clinton docs, 'shocked' federal judge says

By Gregg Re | Fox News

State Department: Clinton surrenders security clearance

Hillary Clinton's top security clearance is withdrawn in wake of email investigation.

In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a court transcript of his remarks. "I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity inby the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case," Lamberth said during Friday's hearing. The Department of Justice's Inspector General (IG), Michael Horowitz, noted in a bombshell report in June that it was "inconsistent with typical investigative strategy" for the FBI to allow Mills to sit in during the agency's interview of Clinton during the email probe, given that classified information traveled through Mills' personal email account. "[T]here are serious potential ramifications when one witness attends another witness' interview," the IG wrote. SEVEN HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE DOJ WATCHDOG'S REPORT INTO FBI, DOJ CONDUCT DURING CLINTON PROBE On Friday, Lamberth, who was appointed to the bench by President Ronald Reagan, said he did not know Mills had been granted immunity until he "read the IG report and learned that and that she had accompanied [Clinton] to her interview." "I was actually dumbfounded when I found out ... that Cheryl Mills had been given immunity." — U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth The transparency group Judicial Watch initially sued the State Department in 2014, seeking information about the response to the Benghazi attack after the government didn't respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Other parallel lawsuits by Judicial Watch are probing issues like Clinton's server, whose existence was revealed during the course of the litigation. The State Department had immediately moved to dismiss Judicial Watch's first lawsuit on a motion for summary judgment, saying in an affidavit that it had conducted a search of all potentially relevant emails in its possession and provided them. The affidavit noted that some more documents and emails could be forthcoming. But Lamberth denied the request to dismiss the lawsuit at the time -- and on Friday, he said he was happy he did, charging that State Department officials had intentionally misled him because other key documents, including those on Clinton's email server, had not in fact been produced. "It was clear to me that at the time that I ruled initially, that false statements were made to me by career State Department officials, and it became more clear through discovery that the information that I was provided was clearly false regarding the adequacy of the search and this – what we now know turned out to be the Secretary’s email system," Lamberth said Friday. He continued: "I don’t know the details of what kind of IG inquiry there was into why these career officials at the State Department would have filed false affidavits with me. I don’t know the details of why the Justice Department lawyers did not know false affidavits were being filed with me, but I was very relieved that I did not accept them and that I allowed limited discovery into what had happened." During a tense exchange with Justice Department lawyer Robert Prince, Lamberth pressed the issue, accusing Prince of using "doublespeak" and "playing the same word games [Clinton] played." That "was not true," the judge said, referring to the State Department's assurances in a sworn declaration that it had searched all relevant documents. "It was a lie." But Prince pushed back sharply, saying he took the judge's accusations "extremely seriously." "It might be that our search could be found to be inadequate, but that declaration was absolutely true," he said. "Now, it's been made clear in rulings by various courts that, basically, the courts are going to expect us to search items that come in afterward in this instance, and that's understandable, but at the time, that was not at all clear, you know?" Prince continued. "I understand if Your Honor thinks that the searches that were done up to the motion for summary judgment were inadequate, but being wrong about the search being adequate does not make it a false affidavit." Lamberth ultimately conceded that he had "misremembered" some details on the issue. JW v State Benghazi Talking Points Transcript 01242 1 by Fox News on Scribd In a statement, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, who was present at the hearing, pushed the White House for answers. “President Trump should ask why his State Department is still refusing to answer basic questions about the Clinton email scandal,” Fitton said. “Hillary Clinton’s and the State Department’s email cover up abused the FOIA, the courts, and the American people’s right to know.” The hearing was held because Judicial Watch is seeking to compel Clinton and other officials to testify and provide more information as part of its lawsuit. Clinton has since blamed Republicans and groups like Judicial Watch for derailing her presidential bid in 2016. “Take the Benghazi tragedy—you know, I have one of the top Republicans, Kevin McCarthy, admitting we’re going to take that tragedy—because, you know, we’ve lost people, unfortunately, going back to the Reagan administration, if you talk about recent times, in diplomatic attacks,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Today" in an interview last year. “But boy, it was turned into a political football. And it was aimed at undermining my credibility, my record, my accomplishments.” BENGHAZI MASTERMIND SENTENCED TO 22 YEARS IN PRISON ON FEDERAL TERRORISM CHARGES Four Americans were killed in the attack on the Benghazi embassy, and the Clinton State Department was faulted for ignoring security concerns in the run-up to the attack, contributing to the poor defense posture at the post. The independent government Accountability Review Board that examined the tragedy concluded there were “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels” at the department that “resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.” Then-national security adviser Susan Rice claimed on several talk shows that the attack was caused by a YouTube video, even as e-mails uncovered after the fact revealed that administration officials knew the incident was the result of terrorism. Officials at the State Department were stunned by Rice's appearances, according to the emails, with one State Department employee suggesting Rice had gone "off the reservation." Rice has since openly suggested she is considering running against Maine moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins because of her vote to support Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation. Rice called Collins' speech announcing her vote a "paean to disingenuousness and incoherence." But Collins has downplayed any potential challenge from Rice. "As far as Susan Rice is concerned, her family has a home in Maine, but she doesn’t live in the state of Maine," Collins said earlier this month. "Everybody knows that."

Teenager kills 19 in Crimea college shooting: Russian officials

Polina Nikolskaya, Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber

MOSCOW (Reuters) - At least 19 people were killed and dozens injured at a college in the Black Sea region of Crimea on Wednesday when a student went through the building shooting at fellow pupils before killing himself, Russian law enforcement officials said. Eighteen-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov turned up at the college in the city of Kerch on Wednesday afternoon carrying a firearm and then began shooting, investigators said. His body was later found in the college with what they said were self-inflicted gunshot wounds. There were no immediate clues as to his motive in mounting such an attack, which recalled similar shooting sprees carried out by students in U.S. schools. Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 , prompting international condemnation and Western sanctions, but since then there have been no major outbreaks of violence on the peninsula. Many of the victims from Wednesday’s attacks were teenage students who suffered shrapnel and bullet wounds. Pupils and staff described scenes of mayhem as panicked pupils tried to flee the building. They said the attack had started with an explosion, followed by more blasts, and a hail of gunfire. Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a meeting in the southern Russian resort of Sochi with his Egyptian counterpart, declared a moment’s silence for the victims. “This is a clearly a crime,” he said. “The motives will be carefully investigated.” “CHILDREN’S BODIES EVERYWHERE” The director of the school, Olga Grebennikova, described the scene that she encountered when she entered the college building after the attack. “There are bodies everywhere, children’s bodies everywhere. It was a real act of terrorism. They burst in five or 10 minutes after I’d left. They blew up everything in the hall, glass was flying,” Grebennikova told Crimean media outlets. “They then ran about throwing some kind of explosives around, and then ran around the second floor with guns, opened the office doors, and killed anyone they could find.” Soon after the attack, Russian officials said they were investigating the possibility that it was terrorism. Troops with armored personnel carriers were sent to the scene. Local parents were told to collect their children from the city’s schools and kindergartens for their safety. However, the Investigative Committee, the state body that investigates major crimes, said later that it was re-classifying the case from terrorism to mass murder. An employee at Kerch’s hospital said dozens of people were being treated for their injuries in the emergency room and in the operating theater. Anastasia Yenshina, a 15-year-old student at the college, said she was in a toilet on the ground floor of the building with some friends when she heard the sound of an explosion. Officials said an explosive device had gone off in the school’s cafeteria during the attack and that a second device had been found among Roslyakov’s belongings and defused. “I came out and there was dust and smoke, I couldn’t understand, I’d been deafened,” Yenshina told Reuters. “Everyone started running. I did not know what to do. Then they told us to leave the building through the gymnasium.” “Everyone ran there... I saw a girl lying there. There was a child who was being helped to walk because he could not move on his own. The wall was covered in blood. Then everyone started to climb over the fence, and we could still hear explosions. Everyone was scared. People were crying.” Photographs from the scene of the blast showed that the ground floor windows of the two-story building had been blown out, and that debris was lying on the floor outside. Emergency services teams could be seen in the photographs carrying wounded people from the building on makeshift stretchers and loading them on to buses and ambulances. A second pupil at the college, who gave his name as Sergei, said he had taken a few steps out of the building into the street when the first blast went off. He was hit by debris from the blast and injured in the leg. Sergei, 15, told Reuters he ran to another building, but said he could hear more explosions going off every few seconds. He took cover and after the attack was over, he was taken to hospital in an ambulance. “I arrived at the hospital, the scene there was awful. They’re bringing in people all covered in blood, some with arms missing, some with legs missing.”

IDF strikes back: 20 Gaza terrorist targets blasted

Israel Defense Forces retaliated on Wednesday morning to a missile strike on Beersheva, hitting 20 “military facilities” in the Gaza Strip.

By David Isaac, World Israel News Staff October 17, 2018

Israel’s military responded forcefully to a Wednesday morning missile strike on a Beersheva home by hitting 20 “military facilities” in the Gaza Strip hours later. A second missile from Gaza landed off the coast near the greater metropolitan area of Tel Aviv. Although Hamas denied its was behind the missile attack, the IDF is holding the terror group which controls the Gaza Strip responsible. “There are only two organizations in Gaza that have this caliber of rocket: Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” said IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus. “It’s not difficult to narrow down who’s behind it.” The IDF struck targets across the Strip, from the cities of Rafah and Khan Younis in the south to Beit Lahiya in the north. Among the targets was a terror tunnel, a weapons factory and a naval commando base. Palestinian media reported seven killed. The Israeli Air Force also blew up a cell that was about to attack the Ashkelon region. The military released video footage of the strike.

CDC confirms 62 cases of polio-like illness, mostly affecting kids

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed 62 cases of the rare polio-like neurological condition acute flaccid myelitis, also known as AFM, so far this year in the U.S. More than 90 percent of the cases involved children 18 or younger, with an average age of just 4 years old. Cases have been confirmed in 22 states. Officials said they are looking at an additional 65 possible cases of AFM. AFM is an illness that affects the nervous system, specifically the area of spinal cord called gray matter. It causes the muscles and reflexes in the body to become weak or even paralyzed. Cases of AFM are characterized by a sudden onset of arm or leg weakness and loss of muscle tone and reflexes. Its symptoms are likened to those caused by polio, which was eradicated in the U.S. thanks to the polio vaccine. The CDC stressed that none of the children who developed these symptoms had the polio virus. Additional symptoms can include facial drooping or weakness, difficulty swallowing and slurred speech. Health experts say the disease can lead to paralysis and even death, but no deaths have been reported so far this year. "We know this can be frightening for parents," Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said in a press briefing on Tuesday. "I encourage parents to seek medical care right way if you or your child develops sudden weakness or loss of muscle tone in arms and legs." AFM is extremely rare, with the CDC estimating that less than one in a million people in the United States will get AFM every year. Still, officials saw an uptick in cases in 2014 and 2016, with peaks around late summer and fall. That pattern appears to be repeating this year. Medical experts aren't sure what causes AFM, but it can occur as a result of a variety of viral illnesses including enteroviruses, West Nile virus, and adenoviruses. "This is truly a mystery disease," Messonnier told CBS News. "We actually don't know what is causing this increase. For some of the previous cases we've identified one pathogen or another, but we have no unifying diagnosis." Many times it can start with what looks like a respiratory illness, a little bit of a fever. Messonnier said that of the cases confirmed this year, none have been related to the polio virus or West Nile virus. Several cases have been linked to enteroviruses or other germs, but officials have not been able to find a cause for the majority of these cases. The CDC also does not yet know who may be at a higher risk for developing AFM or the long-term consequences of the condition. Some patients recover completely, while others continue to struggle with muscle weakness. The CDC knows of one death in a child who had AFM in 2017, Messonnier said. There is no specific treatment for AFM, but doctors may recommend physical or occupational therapy to help with arm or leg weakness. Researchers at Children's Hospital Los Angeles are pioneering a new therapeutic nerve-transfer surgery aimed at helping patients with AFM regain movement. Messonnier said parents should be aware of the symptoms and seek medical care if they notice sudden muscle weakness in their children. They can also help prevent AFM by taking steps to protect children from serious disease, including frequent hand washing, staying up to date on immunizations, and preventing mosquito bites.

Specialty Chaplains Become Armchair Assassins Controlling Slaughterbots

Chaplains who by day hunt, and by night they vaporize

Specialty Chaplains are directing the morality of slaughterbot drones and NanoPartcles that kill.

Chaplains will coach how to kill from thousands of mile away.

Degrees to make killing more humane and be sensitive to drone pilots emotions

What do you get when you hybridize and entangle the military, technology, government, and spiritual leaders who are wolves in sheep's clothing? The fruit of this hybridization began with 503C church tax status, slipped into the Faith-Based Initiative where the government provides the sermon and the narrative, and has now fully degraded to conscripting men and women of God to make the decision who will live and who will die. It has been revealed that the British Army is training ethicists to teach soldiers about the morality of killing with drones. This is not just being carried out in Britain but also here in the United States where justification and rationalization is being sought for the wholesale slaughter of humanity not just the 'enemy'. Incredulously, military Chaplains are going to get a one year degree in the ethical killing by drone or by nano-particle. Killing done thousands of miles away in the gamification of slaughter. It is a scientific fact that drone pilots and nanoparticle controllers will use increased lethal force when the killing is played out on the computer. Our military is turning exponentially to cutting edge technologies which require expeditious judgment at faster than lightning speed in murky ethical territories that come at a moral cost. You are going to witness chaplains-leaders of the flock- engaging in killing by day in asymmetrical warfare, and then that evening conducting bible study or preach a sermon. Never before in history have pastors been called upon to become what is being termed armchair assassins. As mankind runs toward emerging technologies society and the church must face the elements legality, morality and efficacy of spiritual armchair assassins and new concepts such as 'Drone Court'. Will God's people tolerate their Pastor engaging in armchair assassination and do we really have a choice in the matter? This would be an excellent topic for your prayerful consideration and discussion among the Body of Christ.

Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives

The horror I witnessed inside the women’s “liberation” movement. September 1, 2014 Mallory Millett

"When women go wrong men go right after them.”

-- Mae West

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill wrote this over a century ago. During my junior year in high school, the nuns asked about our plans for after we graduated. When I said I was going to attend State University, I noticed their disappointment. I asked my favorite nun, “Why?” She answered, “That means you'll leave four years later a communist and an atheist!" What a giggle we girls had over that. "How ridiculously unsophisticated these nuns are," we thought. Then I went to the university and four years later walked out a communist and an atheist, just as my sister Katie had six years before me. Sometime later, I was a young divorcee with a small child. At the urging of my sister, I relocated to NYC after spending years married to an American executive stationed in Southeast Asia. The marriage over, I was making a new life for my daughter and me. Katie said, "Come to New York. We're making revolution! Some of us are starting the National Organization of Women and you can be part of it." I hadn't seen her for years. Although she had tormented me when we were youngsters, those memories were faint after my Asian traumas and the break-up of my marriage. I foolishly mistook her for sanctuary in a storm. With so much time and distance between us, I had forgotten her emotional instability. And so began my period as an unwitting witness to history. I stayed with Kate and her lovable Japanese husband, Fumio, in a dilapidated loft on The Bowery as she finished her first book, a PhD thesis for Columbia University, “Sexual Politics.” It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a "consciousness-raising-group," a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China. We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:

"Why are we here today?" she asked.

"To make revolution," they answered.

"What kind of revolution?" she replied.

"The Cultural Revolution," they chanted.

“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?" she demanded.

"By destroying the American family!" they answered.

"How do we destroy the family?" she came back.

"By destroying the American Patriarch," they cried exuberantly.

"And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.

"By taking away his power!"

"How do we do that?"

"By destroying monogamy!" they shouted.

"How can we destroy monogamy?"

Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears. Was I on planet earth? Who were these people? "By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!" they resounded. They proceeded with a long discussion on how to advance these goals by establishing The National Organization of Women. It was clear they desired nothing less than the utter deconstruction of Western society. The upshot was that the only way to do this was "to invade every American institution. Every one must be permeated with ‘The Revolution’": The media, the educational system, universities, high schools, K-12, school boards, etc.; then, the judiciary, the legislatures, the executive branches and even the library system. It fell on my ears as a ludicrous scheme, as if they were a band of highly imaginative children planning a Brinks robbery; a lark trumped up on a snowy night amongst a group of spoiled brats over booze and hashish. To me, this sounded silly. I was enduring culture shock after having been cut-off from my homeland, living in Third-World countries for years with not one trip back to the United States. I was one of those people who, upon returning to American soil, fell out of the plane blubbering with ecstasy at being home in the USA. I knelt on the ground covering it with kisses. I had learned just exactly how delicious was the land of my birth and didn't care what anyone thought because they just hadn't seen what I had or been where I had been. I had seen factory workers and sex-slaves chained to walls. How could they know? Asia is beyond our ken and, as they say, utterly inscrutable, and a kind of hell I never intended to revisit. I lived there, not junketed, not visited like sweet little tourists -- I’d conducted households and tried to raise a child. I had outgrown the communism of my university days and was clumsily groping my way back to God. How could twelve American women who were the most respectable types imaginable -- clean and privileged graduates of esteemed institutions: Columbia, Radcliffe, Smith, Wellesley, Vassar; the uncle of one was Secretary of War under Franklin Roosevelt -- plot such a thing? Most had advanced degrees and appeared cogent, bright, reasonable and good. How did these people rationally believe they could succeed with such vicious grandiosity? And why? I dismissed it as academic-lounge air-castle-building. I continued with my new life in New York while my sister became famous publishing her books, featured on the cover of “Time Magazine.” “Time” called her “the Karl Marx of the Women's Movement.” This was because her book laid out a course in Marxism 101 for women. Her thesis: The family is a den of slavery with the man as the Bourgeoisie and the woman and children as the Proletariat. The only hope for women's "liberation" (communism’s favorite word for leading minions into inextricable slavery; "liberation," and much like "collective" – please run from it, run for your life) was this new “Women’s Movement.” Her books captivated the academic classes and soon "Women's Studies” courses were installed in colleges in a steady wave across the nation with Kate Millett books as required reading. Imagine this: a girl of seventeen or eighteen at the kitchen table with Mom studying the syllabus for her first year of college and there's a class called "Women's Studies." "Hmmm, this could be interesting," says Mom. "Maybe you could get something out of this." Seems innocuous to her. How could she suspect this is a class in which her innocent daughter will be taught that her father is a villain? Her mother is a fool who allowed a man to enslave her into barbaric practices like monogamy and family life and motherhood, which is a waste of her talents. She mustn't follow in her mother's footsteps. That would be submitting to life as a mindless drone for some domineering man, the oppressor, who has mesmerized her with tricks like romantic love. Never be lured into this chicanery, she will be taught. Although men are no damned good, she should use them for her own orgasmic gratification; sleep with as many men as possible in order to keep herself unattached and free. There's hardly a seventeen-year-old girl without a grudge from high school against a Jimmy or Jason who broke her heart. Boys are learning, too, and they can be careless during high school, that torment of courting dances for both sexes. By the time Women's Studies professors finish with your daughter, she will be a shell of the innocent girl you knew, who's soon convinced that although she should be flopping down with every boy she fancies, she should not, by any means, get pregnant. And so, as a practitioner of promiscuity, she becomes a wizard of prevention techniques, especially abortion. The goal of Women's Liberation is to wear each female down to losing all empathy for boys, men or babies. The tenderest aspects of her soul are roughened into a rock pile of cynicism, where she will think nothing of murdering her baby in the warm protective nest of her little-girl womb. She will be taught that she, in order to free herself, must become an outlaw. This is only reasonable because all Western law, since Magna Carta and even before, is a concoction of the evil white man whose true purpose is to press her into slavery. Be an outlaw! Rebel! Be defiant! (Think Madonna, Lady Gaga, Lois Lerner, Elizabeth Warren.) “All women are prostitutes,” she will be told. You're either really smart and use sex by being promiscuous for your own pleasures and development as a full free human being "just like men" or you can be a professional prostitute, a viable business for women, which is "empowering" or you can be duped like your mother and prostitute yourself to one man exclusively whereby you fall under the heavy thumb of "the oppressor." All wives are just "one-man whores." She is to be heartless in this. No sentimental stuff about courting. No empathy for either boy or baby. She has a life to live and no one is to get in her way. And if the boy or man doesn't "get it" then no sex for him; "making love" becomes "having sex." "I'm not 'having sex' with any jerk who doesn't believe I can kill his son or daughter at my whim. He has no say in it because it’s my body!” (Strange logic as who has ever heard of a body with two heads, two hearts, four arms, four feet?) There's no end to the absurdities your young girl will be convinced to swallow. "I plan to leap from guy to guy as much as I please and no one can stop me because I'm liberated!” In other words, these people will turn your daughter into a slut with my sister's books as instruction manuals. ("Slut is a good word. Be proud of it!") She'll be telling you, "I'm probably never getting married and if I do it will be after I've established my career," which nowadays often means never. "I'll keep my own name and I don't really want kids. They're such a bother and only get in the way." They'll tell her, “Don't let any guy degrade you by allowing him to open doors for you. To be called ‘a lady’ is an insult. Chivalry is a means of ownership.” Thus, the females, who are fundamentally the arbiters of society go on to harden their young men with such pillow-talk in the same way they’ve been hardened because, "Wow, man, I've gotta get laid and she won't do it if I don't agree to let her kill the kid if she gets knocked-up!” Oppressed? Woman has always had power. Consider the eternal paradigm: only after Eve convinced Adam to eat the fruit did mankind fall. I.e., man does anything to make woman happy, even if it's in defiance of God. There’s power for ya! Without a decent womankind, mankind is lost. As Mae West said, "When women go wrong men go right after them!" I’ve known women who fell for this creed in their youth who now, in their fifties and sixties, cry themselves to sleep decades of countless nights grieving for the children they'll never have and the ones they coldly murdered because they were protecting the empty loveless futures they now live with no way of going back. “Where are my children? Where are my grandchildren?" they cry to me. "Your sister's books destroyed my sister's life!" I've heard numerous times. "She was happily married with four kids and after she read those books, walked out on a bewildered man and didn't look back." The man fell into despairing rack and ruin. The children were stunted, set off their tracks, deeply harmed; the family profoundly dislocated and there was “no putting Humpty-Dumpty together again. ”Throughout the same time these women were “invading” our institutions, the character of the American woman transformed drastically from models portrayed for us by Rosalind Russell, Bette Davis, Deborah Kerr, Eve Arden, Donna Reed, Barbara Stanwyck, Claudette Colbert, Irene Dunn, Greer Garson. These were outstanding women needing no empowerment lessons and whose own personalities, as well as the characters they interpreted, were strong, resilient and clearly carved. Their voices were so different you could pick them out by that alone. We all knew Rita Hayworth's voice. We all knew Katherine Hepburn's voice. I dare you to identify the voices of the cookie-cutter post-women's-liberation types from Hollywood today. How did these “liberated” women fall into such an indistinguishable pile of mush? They all look exactly the same with few individuating characteristics and their voices sound identical, these Julies and Jessicas! My friend, Father George Rutler, calls them "the chirping fledglings of the new Dark Ages." The character of the American woman has been distorted by this pernicious movement. From where did this foul mouthed, tattooed, outlaw creature, who murders her baby without blinking an eye and goes partying without conscience or remorse come? And, in such a short little phase in history? Never before have we heard of so many women murdering their children: Casey Anthony killing her little Caylee and partying-hearty for weeks; Susan Smith driving her beautiful little boys into a lake, leaving them strapped in the water to die torturous deaths; that woman who drowned her five children in the bathtub? “Hey, if I can kill my baby at six months of gestation why not six months post-birth, just call it late late-term abortion.” I insist that woman always has been the arbiter of society and when those women at Lila Karp's table in Greenwich Village set their minds to destroying the American Family by talking young women into being outlaws, perpetrators of infanticide, and haters of Western law, men and marriage, they accomplished just what they intended. Their desire -- and I witnessed it at subsequent meetings till I got pretty sick of their unbridled hate -- was to tear American society apart along with the family and the "Patriarchal Slave-Master," the American husband. We're all so busy congratulating each other because Ronald Reagan "won the Cold War without firing a shot" entirely missing the bare truth which is that Mao, with his Little Red Book and the Soviets, won the Cold War without firing a shot by taking over our women, our young and the minds of everyone tutored by Noam Chomsky and the textbooks of Howard Zinn. Post-graduate Junior is Peter Pan trapped in the Never Neverland of Mom's (she's divorced now) basement. Christina Hoff Sommers says, "Moms and dads, be afraid for your sons. There's a 'war on men' that started a long time ago in gender studies classes and in women's advocacy groups eager to believe that men are toxic… Many 'educated women' in the U.S. have drunk from the gender feminist Kool Aid. Girls at Yale, Haverford and Swarthmore see themselves as oppressed. This is madness." If you see something traitorous in this, a betrayal of my sister, I have come to identify with such people as Svetlana Stalin or Juanita Castro; coming out to speak plainly about a particularly harmful member of my family. Loyalty can be highly destructive. What about Muslims who refuse to speak out right now? I was one of the silent but at last I'm "spilling the beans." The girls have been up to something for years and it's really not good. It's evil. We should be sick to our souls over it. I know I am. And so, mass destruction, the inevitable outcome of all socialist/communist experiments, leaves behind its signature trail of wreckage. So much grace, femininity and beauty lost. So many ruined lives. Mallory Millett resides in New York City with her husband of over twenty years.

DHS Unveils Electromagnetic Pulse Defense Strategy

CC BY 2.0 / killbox US 04:29 10.10.2018Get short URL 228

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The United States launched a new strategy to protect critical infrastructure against threats from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and geomagnetic disturbance (GMD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in a press release. "The strategy lays out a clear vision and approach for DHS to take to protect critical infrastructure and prepare to respond and recover from potentially catastrophic electromagnetic incidents," the release said on Tuesday. The strategy, the release added, reflects assessments by the US intelligence community regarding the potential for America’s adversaries to launch an electromagnetic pulse attack. The strategy focuses on departmental activities but also highlights the importance of interagency cooperation between federal, state and local authorities including private sector critical infrastructure owner-operators, the release said. DHS is developing an implementation plan to accompany this new strategy which will allow the agency to evaluate progress toward addressing identified capability gaps, the release said.

Leaked Google Document Advises to “Police Tone Instead of Content” in the “Shift Towards Censorship”

TOPICS: Aaron Kesel Censorship Google October 11, 2018 By Aaron Kesel

Another Google document has found its way into the public domain, this time through Breitbart. The news publication reports that an 85-page briefing entitled “The Good Censor,” advises tech companies to “police tone instead of content” and to not “take sides” when censoring users. This must be why Activist Post remains censored on YouTube and the wrongful suspension still hasn’t been removed, along with other accounts that were removed, or further why Iran has had 39 YouTube channels deleted. It must be Google’s “new position as ‘moderators in chief.'” (page 70) The document, which can be read in full at Breitbart, admits in writing that big Silicon Valley companies including Google have shifted toward censoring users, moving away from their original values. Moreover, the mission to “create an unmediated ‘marketplace of ideas'” has become a plan by tech companies to “create well-ordered spaces for safety and civility.” (page 67) As former Google PR rep Jessica Powell expressed, this is “creating serious problems in disguise of bettering the world.” “We go about saying that we’re building these amazing things and doing great things for the world but we’re also causing a lot of serious problems,” Powell said. Once again an internal leak within Google gives a rare glimpse into the company and its mindset. Responding to the Breitbart leak, a Google source said the document should be considered “internal research, and not an official company position.” The scary thing is that the document does not recommend a return to the original principles of “don’t be evil” (a phrase Google killed). Instead, the briefing file leaves the question open, suggesting Google may “shift with the times.” However, the document recommends increased transparency to smooth over the process from free speech to censorship (or liberty to tyranny, one could say), according to the report. So anyone who has heard of George Orwell knows where our future is headed. Google might continue to shift with the times – changing its stance on how much or how little it censors (due to public, governmental or commercial pressures). If it does, acknowledgment of what this shift in position means for users and for Google is essential. Shifting blindly or silently in one direction or another rightly incites users’ fury. The Google “internal research” even quotes outside experts like George Soros who express justification of censorship in non-U.S. markets, noting that Google should police “tone instead of content” and “censor everyone equally,” as Breitbart put it. It’s worth noting that George Soros was also involved in funding the “bullshit detector” a fact-checking engine backed by the Full Fact foundation, as Activist Post reported in 2017. The document also proposes “behavior guidelines for users.” This is reminiscent of a leaked 2016 video to The Verge earlier this year, entitled “The Selfish Ledger” from within Google X that exposed an internal Google dialogue to create a dystopia run by the big social giant. The revelation showcased the other big problem the company faces — questions about harvesting its users’ data. With that leak, the company’s dystopian future it seeks to achieve is exposed. The 9-minute video goes on to describe how Google could keep a ledger of all human behavior and then use it to manipulate your decisions and those of future generations. All with the ultimate goal of pushing the company’s values, offering services and products, and basically dictating the behavior of entire populations.  That video was dismissed as just a concept “meant to provoke discussion,” as well or in other words, “internal research.” Then there is the most recent leak involving plans to implement a censored version of its search engine inside China, code-named “Dragonfly,” and suppressing the internal memo about it. Further, if that’s not enough, the company wants phone numbers linked to the searches. Finally, in May, Activist Post reported that Google had removed multiple references to its old catchphrase “Don’t be evil” from its Code of Conduct. Employees expressed outrage over the company’s decision to work with the Pentagon’s Project Maven, including signing a petition, with some even quitting. This caused Google to walk back the plans, denouncing support for Maven by stating that the company would not be renewing the military contract and would stop in 2019. However, as Activist Post reported, the agreement was already signed, so the company is locked in for another year until the contract runs out in March 2019. Google can then legally stop assisting the government with the advancement of artificial intelligence for use with its drones, a nightmarish scenario that brings glimpses of the movie The Terminator to mind. These leaks offer a rare glimpse into the types of conversations and the views the company might be having, as well as aligning with many of Google’s existing products that use AI; for example, suggesting routes in Google Maps, organizing albums in Google Photos, and even composing automated emails in Gmail. You can read the full shocking “Good Censor” document on Scribd here.

Japan Is Drafting a Rulebook for Ethically Editing the Genes of Human Embryos

Which country will be first to create a CRISPR baby?

By Tiffany Jeung on October 10, 2018 Filed Under Genetics & Health

The promise of genetic editing to extend human lifespans and limit the potential for disease is ground-breaking, but also raises huge ethical questions. If everyone can’t afford the latest in human embryo modification, then wouldn’t you get a two-tier society? Fortunately, forward looking countries are already trying to hammer out some of these thornier issues. Most recently, the health and science ministries of Japan convened an expert panel which released draft guidelines permitting scientists to apply gene editing to human embryos on September 28. Although research on human embryos is already regulated by the Japanese government, bioethicist Tetsuya Ishii explained in the announcement that the proposal officially moves Japan’s public stance on specifically using gene editing on embryos from neutral to supportive. It’s only a starting point. While the guidelines restrict the use of gene editing to conceive an actual human, for example, that wouldn’t be enforceable. But without clear boundaries, the allure of learning about early human development may overtake respect for the rules. What is CRISPR? CRISPR, the revolutionary technology that allows humanity to consider this level of gene manipulation, are essentially a Swiss Army knife for DNA. Simple, precise, and relatively cheap, CRISPR uses the enzyme Cas9, guided by a piece of RNA, to alter DNA by cutting out or attaching new pieces. CRISPR has experienced lots of success, reviving the ground cherry to identifying breast cancer mutations. When it comes to applying the technology to human embryos, the risks are much higher. Using CRISPR to investigate infertility and potentially fix diseases is probably its most compelling use-case. A landmark study conducted by researchers at Sun Yat-sen University in 2015 used CRISPR to inject HBB gene to 86 embryos in an attempt to fight a blood disorder, beta thalassemia. But only 71 embryos survived, and the gene splice properly took in 28 embryos, a success rate far too low to consider for clinical use. The cost of getting it wrong, whether or not this splicing leads to a miraculous cure or a terrible mistake, the changes in DNA can still carry forward to future generations. When Every Country Writes Its Own Rules As usual, while technology surges forward, regulation plays catch-up. Although the National Academy of Sciences spearheaded an International Summit on Human Gene Editing in Washington D.C. in 2015, the global community lacks global guidelines that, even if not enforceable, would help countries shape their own laws. (The second International Summit of Human Genome Editing is only taking place this year, from November 27-29). But the lack of cohesion means that, at least so far, policies on editing human embryos vary wildly. On one side of the spectrum, Germany restricts research involving human embryos, enforcing the rules with the threat of criminal charges. The US, by contrast, is far more lax. Although the government doesn’t contribute federal funds to research modifying human embryos, private endeavors remain untouched, and the FDA allows germ-line research as long as it doesn’t fall under, “research in which a human embryo is intentionally created or modified to include a heritable genetic modification.” But countries like China, India and Japan are even more permissive, and hold the loosest regulations with general guidelines that aren’t enforced. This makes these countries the most likely contenders to one day cross the line to clinical trial. “The truth is, we have guidelines but some people never follow them,” Qi Zhou, a developmental biologist at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Zoology in Beijing told Nature. Japan’s status as the “superpower of fertility treatment” positions the country to be extra motivated to join the race of human embryonic research. With over 600 fertility clinics, 5 perresearch could address such a salient issue for Japan’s citizens. The proposal is available for public comment for a month and will then undergo review, setting up the guidelines to take effect as early as 2019.

As you can clearly see the evil in the world is almost fifty-fifty, my word has shown you that before, so that should not be a surprise.  For I have said that two shall be standing in the field and one shall go and one shall remain, that is fifty-fifty, and it has got to that place, that also means that the end is very, very near.  So you will still have half of the world that desires to do evil and half of the world that desires to do good, but only about thirty percent are true Christians. etc.

Dirty Deeds Done: The People of the Slough

By Doug “Uncola” Lynn via TheBurningPlatform.com  

slough (slo͞o, slou) also slew (slo͞o) n.

1. A depression or hollow, usually filled with deep mud or mire.

2. also slue A swamp, marsh, bog, or pond, especially as part of a bayou, inlet, or backwater.

3. A state of deep despair or moral degradation.

2-1. The dead outer skin shed by a reptile or amphibian.

2-2. Medicine A layer or mass of dead tissue separated from surrounding living tissue, as in a wound, sore, or inflammation.

2-3. An outer layer or covering that is shed or removed.

Not Bolshevism, which Stalin liquidated along with all the old Bolsheviks; not Nazism, which perished along with Hitler in his Berlin bunker; not Fascism, which was left hanging upside down, along with Mussolini and his mistress, from a lamp-post—none of these, history will record, was responsible for bringing down the darkness on our civilization, but liberalism. A solvent rather than a precipitate, a sedative rather than a stimulant, a slough rather than a precipice; blurring the edges of truth, the definition of virtue, the shape of beauty; a cracked bell, a mist, a death wish. – Muggeridge, Malcom. (1985). “Vintage Muggeridge: Religion and Society” References to Washington DC and, specifically, the Deep State as “The Swamp” predated U.S. Presidential Candidate Donald Trump. But it was during the 2016 election cycle when that particular designation became indelibly branded into the collective psyche of America’s body politic. If The Swamp describes the political establishment, the corporatocracy, globalists, elite bankers, unelected bureaucrats or the Military Industrial Complex – then those who buttress The Swamp should be referred to as The Slough. To clarify, The Slough consists of people who, at most, support The Swamp, and, at the very least, allow its continual expansion. The People of the Slough, therefore, would consist of useful idiots (i.e. Democrats), the Loony Left, mainstream media and social media propagandists and censors, Marxists, liberals, globalists, elderly hippies, aging boomers, welfare moochers, unicorn chasers, transgendered bathroom rights crusaders, rabid feminists, rainbow dancing socialists, Black Lives Matter racists, Antifa agitators, Never Trumpers, the Millennial snowflake generation, and government drones who subvert the U.S. Constitution for their taxpayer-subsidized paychecks. Perhaps the main concern regarding the People of the Slough is how they start every debate with the premise of their assumed inherent correctness and moral superiority. Indeed, their arrogance never ceases to amaze. In a previous essay, this author described the Swamp creatures and The People of the Slough as establishing a new religion founded upon the illusions of narratives. Yes. The Slough People in particular, embrace their faith using words like: save the earth, justice, fairness, equality and peace. They’re proud of their self-perceived good intentions, common sense, nuance and compassion. Yet their feelings deceive them because they embrace moral relativism; not truth. The value systems of conservative folks are very different than those of The People of the Slough. This is why words like “liberty” and “equality” hold separate meanings for each. In the example of the former, these concepts are the result of natural law. In the latter, they derive more from Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Will to Power”; an idea for which the German philosopher also claimed was demonstrated in Darwinism as the “Will to Survive”. Although some academics believe survival instinct cannot be conflated with Darwin’s biologically-based “natural selection”, the comparison remains fascinating nevertheless. From an ideological, or even psychological, perspective – the desire to survive can add entirely new dimensions to the consequences of political power and its inherently fictitious exculpation: “The ends justify the means”. In other words, when survival is at stake, who has time for the “lesser” conceptions of morality and values? Could these conceptions perhaps even be spiritual in nature? The British journalist, and anti-communist, Thomas Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990) plumbed such considerations in his 1979 essay entitled “The Great Liberal Death Wish”. Although there are those who would challenge Muggeridge’s Christian worldview, his perspectives regarding The People of the Slough do have merit: On a basis of liberal-humanism, there is no creature in the universe greater than man, and the future of the human race rests only with human beings themselves, which leads infallibly to some sort of suicidal situation. It’s to me quite clear that that is so, the evidence is on every hand. The efforts that men make to bring about their own happiness, their own ease of life, their own self-indulgence, will in due course produce the opposite, leading me to the absolutely inescapable conclusion that human beings cannot live and operate in this world without some concept of a being greater than themselves, and of a purpose which transcends their own egotistic or greedy desires. Once you eliminate the notion of a God, a creator, once you eliminate the notion that the creator has a purpose for us, and that life consists essentially in fulfilling that purpose, then you are bound, as Pascal points out, to induce the megalomania of which we’ve seen so many manifestations in our time – in the crazy dictators, as in the lunacies of people who are rich, or who consider themselves to be important or celebrated in the western world. Alternatively, human beings relapse into mere carnality, into being animals.

If you envisage men as being only men, you are bound to see human society, not in Christian terms as a family, but as a factory-farm in which the only consideration that matters is the well-being of the livestock and the prosperity or productivity of the enterprise. That’s where you land yourself. And it is in that situation that western man is increasingly finding himself.

– Muggeridge, Malcom. (1979). “The Great Liberal Death Wish”

As opposed to natural law, The People of the Slough are guided by ideology and perhaps, an anima mundi or zeitgeist that doesn’t (necessarily) require supernatural or metaphysical roots; although it’s possible. Regardless, the “spirit” behind the “New Religion” could be as simple as an evolutionary faith of Man becoming “like gods”. The People of the Slough value the illusions of narratives more than facts. Truth, to them, is simply that which they WISH to be true. In turn, they manufacture their own New Reality. This is why, in any ideological debate, when they can’t win on principle, they always redirect the discussion to race, or gender, or sexual preference. In so doing, the lofty conceptions of law and due process, for example, become secondary to base considerations such as skin color and genitalia. This also explains why open borders and the right of women to abort their fetuses are considered of higher importance than even the obvious corruption within the highest offices of government; including, in America, the Federal Bureau (FBI) of Investigation and the Department of Justice (DoJ). Although, The People of the Slough have actively utilized identity politics, political correctness, race, and gender, as well as other divisions, to gather before the altar of their New Superstition, they had not, until recently, crossed any real lines, per se, in the eyes of the Mushy-Minded Middle. They definitely did so, however, during Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination hearings for the Supreme Court. In that example, the nation witnessed the self-perceived purveyors of social justice attempt to convict and hang an innocent man. Of course, all of this illicit insanity would have especially come to surface if Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Presidential Election. Had Trump lost, conservatives would now be in the midst of neo-Orwellian Agenda 21 regulations, gun confiscation, government-mandated politically correct orthodoxies, and suppression of dissent much more fierce than what is currently being demonstrated by the mainstream media and online corporate behemoths. Yet, now, with Trump in office, the “Will to Power” within The People of the Slough is increasingly being seen by even Never Trumpers, as the once-veiled veneer of civility is torn asunder along with any remaining need for pretense. Stated another way, The People of the Slough are now in survival mode; and their fear is palpable. This is why Former U.S. Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton said recently: You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. The People of the Slough profess their tolerance of various races and imaginary gender classifications, but their civility is arbitrary; as was demonstrated in the Kavanaugh affair. The Slough People opposed Kavanaugh on ideology and for the wrong reason(s). At the same time, they called the judge a lying pervert, even as they desired to hang him in the public square on the basis of false allegations, and for purposes of political expediency. Evidently, Catholic white men deserve zero justice in the New Faith of The Slough People. Conservative, and even politically centrist, white men are now excluded to the point they can have their reputations ruined by false allegations, slander, and innuendo. What happened to Brett Kavanaugh was the very definition of a hate crime. And this is the essence of The Slough: its disciples are unjust. The foundation of their twisted superstition is not rooted in law or morality but rather a Nietzschean desire for power that now prevents them from practicing the tolerance of which they profess. Although many believe it was Senator Susan Collin’s (R-Maine) speech that publically vindicated Kavanaugh, thus sealing the support of independent voters and Never-Trump conservatives – President Trump disagreed. He claimed it was his own mocking of Kavanaugh’s accuser that “leveled the playing field” against The Orwellian Media’s memory-holing of key facts in the case. The Mainstream Media never reported on Christine Blasey-Ford’s memory gaps. Instead, they only reported on her credibility. Notwithstanding, when Trump revealed the following facts at a campaign rally in Mississippi by mocking Blasey-Ford, the news outlets were then forced to cover the president’s revelatory statements: How did you get home? I don’t remember. How’d you get there? I don’t remember. Where is the place? I don’t remember,” Trump said, as the audience laughed and cheered. I don’t know. I don’t know. What neighborhood was it? I don’t know. Where’s the house? I don’t know. Upstairs? Downstairs? Where was it — I don’t know. But I had one beer, that’s the only thing I remember. – Source Examples like this also explain why the writings of George Orwell are a great lens by which to view The People of the Slough. Through Orwell’s specific designations including “Newspeak” and “The Memory Hole” we can now understand why lies travel the world twice while the truth ties its shoes. The People of the Slough report and swallow muddied narratives via Newspeak (propaganda) while The Memory Hole buries any contravening truth deep in the mud. Moreover, on October 8, 2018 President Trump boldly stuck his proverbial knife a little deeper into the mire: He declared Justice Brett Kavanaugh innocent and apologized to the judge on behalf of the nation. In turn, Kavanaugh, at the Supreme Court swearing-in ceremony, graciously said he was willing to let bygones be bygones: The Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional. That process is over. My focus now is to be the best Justice I can be. I take this office with gratitude and no bitterness. On the Supreme Court, I will seek to be a force for stability and unity. My goal is to be a great Justice for all Americans and for all of America. I will work very hard to achieve that goal. Of course, none of this was acceptable to The People of the Slough. They now want to investigate Kavanaugh for perjury and possible impeachment should the Democrats win the midterm elections next month. They’ll never stop. They’ll never rest because they believe their very survival is at stake. The People of the Slough operate on emotions in the whim of moments. They believe conservatives are misled by “fake news” while Special Counsel Robert Mueller leads them, like the Pied Piper, down Russian Conspiracy Road. As they threaten violence to Senator Susan Collins and claw at the Supreme Court doors like rabid felines, the liberal pundits condone it all in silent consent; just like moderate Muslims after Allah-inspired acts of terror.

Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it… – Hand, Learned (1952), “The Spirit of Liberty”

We’ve entered the final days before the midterm elections and it certainly feels like it did two years ago. The smell of desperation, sweat, blood, mud, and hubris, remains palpable on The People of the Slough. It will be very interesting to see what happens next. Appropriately, the elephant is the party symbol of Republicans and elephants are said to have long memories. Conservative Americans will never forget how Obamacare was rammed down their throats under the cover of lies and along strict party lines, when The Slough Party controlled both the U.S. House and Senate. They also remember Bill Clinton dragging a $20 bill through a trailer park, Obama’s pen and phone, and so much more. Certainly, The People of the Slough will never demonstrate the type of civility conservatives showed past Democratic Presidents. Perhaps, the dirty mob hates Trump because he forces them to face their own hypocrisy. They refuse to look inward (or lack the ability), so it’s just easier to blindly hate Trump and his Deplorables, calling them Hitler and Nazis, respectively. But even, if The People of the Slough do emerge victorious in next month’s elections, be assured Trump will bang them like a drum over the next two years. It will be hard to look away and it causes one to wonder if Trump’s Presidency was The Swamp’s plan all along to divide the nation further apart. What has been frustrating for Trump’s supporters is how the president has failed to follow completely through on his victories. For example, as soon as he won the presidency, he let the Clintons off the hook saying they were “good people”. It will probably go the same way with Senator Dianne Feinstein and her staff, attorney Michael Avenatti, and Kavanaugh’s female accusers, who all likely committed process crimes in their attempt to frame an innocent man and subvert the Supreme Court nomination process; if not the Supreme Court itself. There needs to be real consequences, and yet these never seem to completely come around, do they? There are some who say Kavanaugh was a great choice because he was successfully installed on the Supreme Court while simultaneously exposing The People of the Slough in ways that, some claim, was a trap set by Trump. Or, it’s possible The Swamp now has their man on the highest court of the land as the nation disintegrates. Both objectives would satisfy the globalists and Kavanaugh does value national security above the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It’s also possible The Swamp even desires open-warfare on America’s streets so they can use their high-tech toys to cull the herd, so to speak. At some point, in the near future – perhaps even before the 2020 elections, The People of the Slough will cross the line of civility again; as they did during Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination process. Except, next time, it will probably be more serious. In that likely eventuality, hard decisions will then be made by The Conservative Remnant and that means the Mushy-Minded Centrists better choose sides real quick. Can voting stall the inevitable? Is it worth another try? Emigrate While You Still Can!

Italy’s Mount Etna could be collapsing into the sea

By Sid PerkinsOct. 10, 2018 , 2:00 PM

For decades, scientists have known that the southeastern slopes of Mount Etna, an active volcano on the eastern shore of Sicily in Italy, are shifting toward the sea about 2 or 3 centimeters each year. Now, they have a better idea of why this is happening, and it’s making them worried. In a new study, scientists gathered data from seafloor instruments that allowed them to track the movement of the volcano’s submarine slopes over time. For most of the 15-month period they studied, nothing happened. But during an 8-day period in May 2017, Mount Etna’s southeastern flank moved 4 centimeters to the east, the researchers report online today in Science Advances. That’s a much larger movement than has been recorded on land, suggesting the southeastern flank of the volcano is collapsing under its own weight. There’s no telling whether, or when, this slow-motion landslide will really let loose, but the researchers note that sudden slumps of undersea material have created locally devastating tsunamis in other parts of the world.

Mob Rule Always Precedes Civil War and Obama Has Emerged as the Chief Mobster

Is Obama Preparing to Lead a Coup Against President Trump? Why Does He Have a Private Army Consisting of Thousands? Why IS He Only a Short Way From the White House? What Is He Really Up To? Obama has initiated a new strategy for the liberal left, MOB RULE! Ed Henry from Fox News reported on the Fox news show on October 11, 2018, Fox and Friends, that he has uncovered evidence that Obama was planning to lead a movement of incivility against the Trump administration and all conservatives, in general, weeks before leaving office, should Trump prevail and win the Presidential election. This revelation should not be surprising to anyone familiar with Obama’s background. His only job prior to his one term of being an Illinois State Senator and a partial term as a US Senator, prior to becoming the President was that of being a “community activist”. Some community activists provide a valuable service to their community. Most do nothing but serve to mindlessly disrupt the day to day function of a community with nonsense, liberal-based politics. Obama was the latter. It is interesting to see how Obama has returned to his role as a community activist, only this time, he is performing this function on a grand scale and on behalf of the globalist forces that would subjugate this country by destroying its civil liberties, economy, it border security and its sovereignty. Obama is now doing what he does best, destroying the status quo by tearing down, not by building up. Obama is nothing but a domestic terrorist and he is leading liberals into a very dark period of Mob Rule. No Conservative American Is Safe In the Lawless Environment Created by the Left “Mad” Maxine Waters, D-CA., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., in a well coordinated attack on traditional, conservative Americans, have simultaneously called for Democratic supporters to engage in extreme intimidation of conservative Republicans and Trump Cabinet members no matter where they are. They want no conservative to feel safe in public or even at their homes. Senator Rand Paul The deranged left wants more brutal beatings like the one administered to Rand Paul; R-KY., in his backyard which broke 6 ribs, punctured his lung and gave him life-threatening pneumonia several times. In short, Senator Rand Paul was beaten within an inch of his life while the mentally unhinged left of this country celebrated. Senator Rand Paul’s Wife It is one thing for Rand Paul to be on the front line and face the dangers created by the Obama-led stooges. It is quite another consideration when spouses are are brought into the intimidation. Rand Paul’s wife, who is as low-profile as they come, stated that she is so fearful that she sleeps with a loaded gun. Colorado Senator Gardner’s Wife How low does one have to go to send a video of a beheading to a US Senator’s wife? Well, that is exactly what just happened in the following case: Senator Cruz and His Wife While dining at a restaurant, Ted Cruz and his wife were forced to flee by an attacking mob and if Cruz and his wife were not able to get away, nobody can be sure what happened. Besides Obama, Who’s Responsible? The doxing of conservative Republicans and their families is inexcusable. Fortunately, one of these domestic terrorists has been apprehended and held without bail. The perpetrator formerly worked for Senator Dianne Feinstein. Should we be surprised? Has anyone even heard Feinstein disavow this event? Mr. Fast and Furious, former disgraced Attorney General, Eric Holder set a new low for a former cabinet official when he stated the following as cited in the Washington Post: “When they go low, we kick ‘em,” the 67-year-old former Obama Administration AG declared during a campaign swing in McDonough Ga., on Sunday. “That’s what the new Democratic Party is about… We’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party.” Remember, Eric Holder is the new spokesperson for CALEXIT and this organization has clearly stated that they will begin to execute white people in public venues if California does not gain its independence. And if one follows this trail of stink far enough, of course it ends at Hillary Clinton’s big mouth as she said “we won’t become civil until we win back the House and/or the Senate” And when we remember what happened to Rep. Steven Scalise for exposing the child-sex-trafficking operations with leftist-related forces, are surprised by any of this? The liberal media shares blame as well. Yesterday, I watched as CNN committed one of the biggest acts of racism I have ever witnessed on network TV. Trump supporter, Kanye West, was called a “token negro” by CNN. In summation, the Democratic Party is no better than the terrorist organization, The Muslim Brotherhood. Oh, wait minute, didn’t Trevor Louden, producer of Enemies Within, expose 80 democratic congressional members as belonging to front groups for the American Communist Party and/or the Muslim Brotherhood? Remember, Pelosi, Warren, Franken, Ellison, Sinema, Grijavalda, et al. And let’s not forget that Feinstein housed a Chinese spy for two decades on her staff. Can there be any doubt that we are rushing headlong towards mass violence and ultimately a civil war?

We Are At War For This Nation: Meet You At The Polls

Oct 11, 2018 Read More Articles by Dave Daubenmire

Stay with me to the end. Here is an opportunity for YOU to make a difference. Ever since the miracle of Donald Trump’s election nearly two years ago I have been warning anyone who will listen that Donald Trump cannot Make America Great Again! Only the American Christian church can pull off something as dramatic as that. The recent Kavanaugh freak show was evidence that something is seriously wrong with America’s two-party system. There really aren’t two parties. For the most part, elected Republicans and Democrats are both on the side of bigger, more expansive government. The idea of principled politicians is a thing of the past. The “swamp” is nothing more than a conglomerate of politicians who desire nothing more than personal advancement and personal enrichment. You are free to believe that Republican Senators Graham and Collins finally “saw the light” and did the right thing, but I can promise you that their “change of heart” had nothing to do with their integrity. Both were “caught by short hairs” and struck a deal with the men behind the curtain for their personal benefit. Me thinks there is big time stuff going on behind the scenes. Both parties are corrupt, Ok? However, there really is something known as the “lesser of two evils” and the Demoncrats were exposed for the children of the Devil that they really are. I have no illusions about the darkness on the Republican side; however the wickedness of the Demoncrat leadership has no bottom. They are straight from the pits of hell. Republican warts aside, how could any CHRISTIAN ever vote for a Demoncrat? The DEVIL’s party was on full display. They are clearly anti-American and the greater of two evils. Let me say it again…no CHRISTIAN can ever vote for a Demoncrat. They are the party of abortion and fake marriage. Neither position is Biblical. Which brings me back to Making America Great Again. It is time for THE CHURCH to get into the game. This is not about Trump, Kavanaugh, or political parties. It is about reclaiming our government one political party at a time. Let’s bury the Demoncrats and then go to work on draining the Republican swamp. Hell hath no fury like a Demoncrat victory in November. Christians in America can restore the rule of law this November. It is time for the churches to get ACTIVELY involved. A note to our pastors. It is time to lead. It is time to pick a side. It is time to show the MORAL courage and speak the TRUTH to your flocks. Playing both sides of the fence will no longer work. Being neutral is cowardly. LEAD!! We cannot miss the opportunity to MAKE THE CHURCH GREAT AGAIN! To America’s black pastors. Open your stinkin eyes. Get off of the plantation, walk away from the Demoncrats and encourage your flocks to do the same. We can all see it now. Jesus is the author of LIFE and the Demoncrats support death. Life and death have no color. Jesus supports LIFE! Black babies do not matter to the Demoncrats. The Demoncrat Party is now controlled by anti-American socialists who have wreaked havoc on America since seizing the courts in the late 50’s. Their 60 year strong hold on the courts has turned America upside down. They have used the courts to get through policies that they never could have convinced the American people to vote for. The American Church can return sanity to this nation. Please check out www.MeetYouAtThePolls.com . This is a safe and effective way for the voice of the church to be heard this November. This is YOUR chance, and your Church’s chance to play an ACTIVE role in Making America Great Again. In a nutshell… We invite you to participate in a series of nation-wide prayer rallies leading up to Election Day, 2018. We believe that… God-fearing people in our nation are called to be leaders in our communities and participants in the political process. The Church should be less concerned with being politically correct and more concerned with being Biblically correct. The Body of Christ needs to put aside our racial differences and unite on behalf of the Kingdom of God. Our spiritual leaders need to reclaim their God-appointed duty (and exercise their Constitutional right) to speak the FULL measure of God’s truth to their congregations. So what are we asking you to do? Simply this. Spread the word in your church and among your friends to Meet You at the Pole in front of your local city hall, county courthouse or state capitol. We will meet once a week for the four weeks preceding the election, and on Election Day we will move from the flag pole to the ELECTION POLLS. If your pastor is willing take the lead on this and make it a church-wide event, then great! If not, you’ll just have to organize from the trenches. We are at war for this nation. If the CHRISTIANS would flood the polls on November and vote for LIBERTY we push back the Socialist drift of this nation for the next 60 years. What kind of nation will we be leaving to our children and grandchildren if we allow the God-haters to gain control? Please check out the website and get involved in your local community. Wake up! Get involved! Get organized in YOUR hometown. Motivate your pastor…and your neighbors. It is not a Red Wave or a Blue WAVE that will change this nation…it is a CHRISTIAN WAVE. We don’t need God’s blessing…we need His Mercy. Let’s repent of our apathy. Let’s repent of our sins. Let’s humbly ask the Lord to HEAL OUR LAND. Only then can America Be Great Again! Meet You At The Polls!

Breaking: Rod Rosenstein Refuses to Turn Over Subpoenaed Memos – Backs Out of Thursday’s Congressional Hearing

Jim Hoft by Jim Hoft October 10, 2018

As we reported earlier today Rod Rosenstein is one of the most conflicted and corrupt officials in US history. 17.9KShare 736Tweet Email

According to multiple reports, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein has given a verbal resignation to Chief of Staff John Kelly following an explosive NYT report he wanted to wear a wire and oust Trump from office. Last week, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC), who previously filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein, called for the Deputy Attorney General to appear before Congress under oath this week. But today Rosenstein notified Congress he will not turn over the subpoenaed memos and will not appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

The extreme left is desperately trying to instigate a civil war, and prominent left-wing “leaders” are fueling the fire.

Mac Slavo — October 10, 2018

The extreme left is desperately trying to instigate a civil war, and prominent left-wing “leaders” are fueling the fire. Take, for example, recent calls for violence from none other than Hillary Clinton, as James Woods pointed out on Twitter last night:

The REAL WAR for the future of humanity: Democrats increasingly possessed by demonic forces that seek the extermination of humanity?

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) What follows in this article is a thought experiment. Many believe the phenomena described here to be real. What do you believe? —- Begin thought experiment —-

Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft, just pointed out that the political Left has “literally been taken over by evil.” (Source) It turns out he’s more correct than even he might realize. Over the last several years, Leftists have morphed into an irrational, hate-filled violent mob of “Demoncrats” that don’t even resemble conscious human beings. Operating like a zombie swarm of mindless lunatics, they are now taking over entire cities like Portland, Oregon, where even the local police now stand down and allow deranged Left-wing mobs to run the city. Watch this astonishing video where an elderly white man is being harassed, racially verbally assaulted and then has his vehicle windows smashed by deranged left-wing lunatics who have taken over the city of Portland, apparently with the full permission of the snowflake mayor and the pathetic, spineless Portland Police: Note that this incident took place just one block from a Portland Police station, where there wasn’t a single police officer who took action against these Democrat thugs who are now taking over city streets and screaming racial slurs at white people. (All in the name of “social justice,” of course.) This isn’t the first case of a major U.S. city falling to the anarchy of left-wing lunatics. As the Wall Street Journal reports about another Portland incident from June: A mob surrounded ICE’s office in Southwest Portland June 19. They barricaded the exits and blocked the driveway. They sent “guards” to patrol the doors, trapping workers inside. At night they laid on the street, stopping traffic at a critical junction near a hospital. Police stayed away. At this time I am denying your request for additional resources,” the Portland Police Bureau’s deputy chief, Robert Day, wrote to federal officers pleading for help. Hours later, the remaining ICE workers were finally evacuated by a small federal police team. The facility shut down for more than a week. An epidemic of hatred, mindlessness and anarchy is sweeping across Leftist populations A reasonable person might describe this sweeping expansion of hatred and anarchy as an “epidemic.” But there’s no virus that can explain the phenomenon. The cause isn’t viral or bacterial, it turns it: It’s spiritual. Many people believe that Leftists are literally being possessed by demonic forces that they’ve invited into their lives through the mechanisms described below. This could explain the hatred, the mindlessness, the desire for killing their opponents and their complete lack of anything resembling rationality or logic. Today’s typical left-wing lunatic cannot explain anything they believe. Instead, they resort to screaming, accusing, kicking and crying. These are all expressions of lunacy, not rationality or reason. Take a look at some of the lunacy of Leftists in this astonishing video: Importantly, recognize that these are not the actions of conscious human beings. That’s because these Leftists are no longer human, the theory goes. Demonic possession is real… and it’s spreading Demonic possession is a real phenomenon. Catholic priests are being recruited in record numbers to battle actual demons who are seizing control of human minds and bodies.The diocese of Milan recently nominated seven new exorcists, the bishop of Naples appointed three new ones a couple of years ago and the Catholic Church in Sardinia sent three priests for exorcism training in Rome,” reports The Telegraph (UK). “In Spain, Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, the archbishop of Madrid, chose eight priests to undergo special training in May to confront what he described as ‘an unprecedented rise’ in cases of ‘demonic possession’. The Church in Spain was coming across many cases that ‘go beyond the competence of psychologists’ and they were occurring with ‘a striking frequency’, the archbishop said.” The Catholic Church’s top exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, says he has personally “sent 160,000 demons back to hell,” reports the Christian Post. As the story reports: An 84-page update of exorcism rites compiled in 1614 and drawn up in 1998 stipulates how Catholic priests trained as exorcists should operate. According to the guidelines established by the church, they have to follow a ritual known as “De exorcismis et supplicationibus quibusdam,” or “Of exorcisms and certain supplications.” All across the planet, priests are being tasked with an increasing number of demonic possessions, which they describe as a demon entity entering the body of a human being through a spiritual portal or opening. But what’s causing these openings that demonic entities can use to possess human beings? Abortion is a child sacrifice ritual that opens the spirit to demonic possession Catholic priests have all sorts of theories about how demon spirits possess human beings. Amorth, for example, believes that reading Harry Potter books opens young minds to demonic possession. Some priests believe that practicing yoga causes a person to turn to Satan, but they’ve all somehow missed the obvious: Pope Francis himself has been possessed by demonic forces and is working on Earth as an “ambassador” to Satan. The Catholic Church, it turns out, is run by Satan from the very top. Throughout the history of human civilizations, the phenomenon of opening the human spirit to demonic possession — a kind of spiritual portal — has been “powered” by child sacrifice. In ancient Aztec and Mayan civilizations, human children were routinely murdered to appease what local priests believed to be spiritual gods. The act of murdering children en masse — some ancient rituals involving the marathon murder of as many as 80,000 children and adults in a single setting — serves as a powerful “magnet” to attract evil. When people murder children to invoke power, they invite evil, demonic forces to possess their minds and bodies. This is the abortion industry in America: A child sacrifice factory that mirrors the mass murder rituals of ancient human civilizations. Today, Leftists worship the murder of children and celebrate abortions as a sign of being “progressive.” Disguised as “reproductive health,” the abortion industry in America today is actually a child sacrifice factory that serves to keep open the portals of spiritual possession, allowing demonic forces to seize control of human minds. Those who worship abortion also worship Satan and death. The recent fight over Brett Kavanaugh was, to many Leftists, a fight to maintain their child sacrifice abortion factories, because without all the negative energy of fear and terror generated by abortion factories, the political Left would not have sufficient dark spiritual energy to power its demons that feed on such negative emotions. Once controlled by demonic possession, once-human individuals are no longer humans. They are demon-possessed activists for evil who pretend to be human. They still inhabit human bodies and have access to all the memories and knowledge of the original host they have now possessed, the thinking goes. This is why they can be easily mistaken for human beings when they’re actually demons in human form. If you follow this line of thinking, it’s not difficult to conclude that nearly all the top Leftists are actually former humans who have become possessed by demon spirits. Many of these people are then elevated to top positions in comedy, culture, music and especially Hollywood, where overt worship of Satan has become a routine ritual among the rich and famous. Some of the most powerful demons-in-human-form are promoted to become U.S. Senators. Over time, the inner demon begins to overtake the human form, leading to aged humans who literally resemble demonic creatures. For example, take a look at this actual photo of California Sen. Dianne Feinstein: Or look at the hollow, dark, soulless eyes of George Soros, who funds the operations of left-wing evil all across our planet. It’s like peering into the empty soul of Satan himself: etc. etc. Demon possession now defines Democrats and the DNC, whose members engage in “spirit cooking” rituals to strengthen their demonic power According to emails released by Wikileaks, many of the top people at the DNC are followers of “spirit cooking,” a bizarre, demon-worshiping ritual in which participants consume human menstrual blood, semen and breast milk. As InfoWars reported in 2016: In what is undoubtedly the most bizarre Wikileaks revelation to date, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta was invited to a “spirit cooking dinner” by performance artist Marina Abramovic, to take part in an occult ritual founded by Satanist Aleister Crowley. Spirit cooking refers to “a sacrament in the religion of Thelema which was founded by Aleister Crowley” and involves an occult performance during which menstrual blood, breast milk, urine and sperm are used to create a “painting”. Similarly, many people have observed that Hillary Clinton appears to be either suffering from a bizarre neurological disorder or something resembling demonic possession. Watch this remix video of Hillary Clinton laughing hysterically about murdering her political enemies, braking like a dog and behaving like a complete lunatic, and then demanding that Americans vote for her merely because she has a vagina: Hillary Clinton, of course, is also a “serial murderer,” explains this REAL.video episode from Truth Matters: The LGBT movement is a demonic war on the continuation of the human species One of the most sinister expressions of demonic influence and demon possession of former human beings is the rise of the LGBT agenda which seeks the destruction of male-female families and human reproduction. The LGBT movement has now descended into absolute lunacy, claiming that men and women are exactly the same, meaning that reproductive organs do not exist and that biological reproduction therefore isn’t real. They quite literally insist that children are “born genderless” (without reproductive organs) and are spontaneously “assigned a gender” at birth, which causes genitals to magically appear. But those genitals are meaningless, according to LGBT demons, because they claim that men can get pregnant, women can become men and that men can become women through magical invocations. This utterly insane narrative — which contradicts biological reality — is now being embraced by children’s hospitals, where gender designations are being removed from medical bracelets in the name of LGBT progressivism. This medical insanity, of course, will negatively impact the efforts of doctors to treat the health conditions of those children, given that male and female humans are obviously different in their medical challenges and needs. But the LGBT community wants doctors to pretend that there’s no such thing as a male or female child, and that all children are “created equal.” Thus, LGBT lunatics want doctors to treat male babies and female babies as being exactly the same, even if the medical concerns involve hormones or reproductive organs. Some men who are part of the insane LGBT movement actually visit OB/GYN doctors and demand pap smears. This is the lunacy that has now taken over the deranged Left. LGBT agendas are an assault on the reproductive continuity of the human race Ultimately, this is all an assault on the continuity of the human race which can only be maintained through sexual reproduction involving a male and a female. The demonic Left is attempting to obliterate all normal sexual reproduction by painting homosexual partnership as the new normal, which just happens to coincide with a complete inability to reproduce the human species. (Two men cannot make a baby. Nor can two women, no matter what the deranged, lunatic libtards claim.) Across all popular culture, including Netflix movies, Amazon Prime programming, Hollywood films, TV shows and music, heterosexual relationships are being demonized and marginalized, while homosexual pairing — and “gender-fluidity” — are celebrated and promoted. This goes way beyond merely respecting the personal choice and individual liberty of people who choose to live with same-sex partners. The promotion of all this is now targeting children as a form of cultural indoctrination. The upshot is that if an entire generation of children can be brainwashed into choosing same-sex partners, the human race will cease to reproduce after just one generation. Since one of the key goals of Satan is the complete destruction of humanity, this outcome would neatly achieve precisely that goal. Transgenderism and the denial of biological gender is also an assault on the very definition of men and women being “made in God’s image,” as the Christian faith explains. Make no mistake: The LGBT indoctrination of children — and the celebration of transgender children — is pure evil. It is not merely a crime against those children; it is part of a spiritual assault on humanity and the attempted extermination of the human race which can only be sustained through sexual reproduction between a man and a woman. (By the way, merely stating this obvious point is now considered “hate speech” by the demonic Left, which censors every thought or element of speech that does not further their agenda of the complete destruction of all human life.) “Climate change” narrative is a war on LIFE on Earth The demonic, destructive, anti-life forces of the Left have also declared war on all life on Earth through the advancement of their “climate change” narrative. This dangerous, anti-science narrative demands the complete elimination of carbon dioxide from the atmospherean act that would collapse all plant and animal life on the planet, given that virtually all plants need CO2 to survive. The global warming narrative calls for a cold, dead ice planet where no liquid water flows because it’s all locked up in frozen ice caps. That’s what the Demoncrats demand: A frozen ice planet, devoid of life, with no CO2 available for plants to use for photosynthesis. They actually describe their efforts as a “war on carbon,” apparently oblivious to the reality that humans are carbon-based lifeforms. Any war on carbon is a war on humanity, which is exactly what the Demoncrats are carrying out. CO2 levels are already dangerously low across our planet. A world with higher CO2 would support more life, not less. Higher CO2 levels would unleash more diverse rainforests, lush plant life and abundant animal life across the planet, transforming deserts into forests thanks to the unlocking of frozen water and higher levels of rainfall for inland regions. But this “greening” of the planet is precisely what Demoncrats are hoping to halt… because they are enemies of life and enemies of ecological sustainability. They seek the absolute destruction of all life on planet Earth, almost as if they were trying to pull off some sort of terraforming agenda to kill off humans and render the planet dead. The entirety of mainstream “science” — if you can even call it that — is now dedicated to this mission of destroying the Earth’s atmospheric chemistry by eliminating all CO2 and driving both plants and animals to extinction. It’s all being carried out, of course, in the name of “sustainability.” The Devil can’t stop laughing at how easily left-wing humans are brainwashed into believing their their own global suicide us part of “sustainability.” We are not in a political war; we are in a spiritual war The mistake people make today is thinking that Democrats are merely human beings with different political views. In truth, they no longer possess human consciousness at all. They are possessed by demonic forces that seek the total destruction of life, liberty and humanity. This is why they are obsessed with abortion murder, economic destruction, media lies and the complete obliteration of the family consisting of a man and a woman who can reproduce to perpetuate the human species. Leftists seek the complete annihilation of sustainable life on Earth. They are actively working to eliminate CO2 from the atmosphere and collapse the entire global food web, and they’re deliberately spreading mass infertility through WHO-demanded vaccine interventions that have been repeatedly proven to administer infertility chemicals to vaccine recipients. As I explain in detail in this eye-opening video, if the Left wins, humanity DIES How to defeat the demonic forces of Leftism and literally save humanity from annihilation Step 1: Wake up and realize they are not human. They are demon spirits which have possessed human minds and bodies, rendering them into demonic entities rather than conscious human beings. This is why they behave as evil, deranged, violent lunatics complete devoid of logic, reason or human decency. Step 2: Realize this is not a political war but a spiritual war. The demon-possessed Leftists don’t merely want to achieve political victory and rule society with “progressive” ideas; they seek to destroy humanity, obliterate human life, mass murder babies, outlaw Christianity, demonize people based on the color of their skin, and even decimate all crops, forests and food sources on the planet by eliminating CO2 from the atmosphere. They are at war with humanity, and they merely pretend to be interested in politics as a means to accomplish their complete destruction of life on Earth. Step 3: Defeat the demons. Humanity must come to its senses and use every available means to rid the world of demonic entities. Defeating Demoncrats at the ballot box isn’t nearly enough (although it’s a start). In many films and books, “demon hunters” are dispatched to drive evil from this Earth. In the film “Constantine,” starring Keanu Reeves, protectors of humanity use exotic weapons to drive demons out of human bodies, sending them back to hell. Countless other films depict similar defenses of Earth against demonic forces, including the Avengers, which depicts a large portal opening in the sky, through which evil demons rush in from another dimension to annihilate humanity. Although such films are dramatizations, they are not pure fiction. They depict phenomena that many people believe to be entirely real and happening right now. For example, many people believe that CERN, the Large Hadron Collider, is a high-energy portal to another dimension from which demonic forces are summoned into our plane of existence. Both the CERN logo and the logo for Google Chrome — built by one of the most demonic, evil tech companies in existence — overlay “666” in concentric circles, indicating their worship of Satan and the destruction of humanity: Further supporting the theory, the CERN facility features a statue of Shiva, the Hindu Goddess known as “the Destroyer” of worlds. CERN’s connections to the occult are widely discussed across the internet, with some people believing that the bizarre occult rituals that are routinely performed in front of CERN involve “mock human sacrifice” and other forms of Satan worship which scientists describe as a “prank” in order to distract from the fact that they are nonetheless carrying out the ritual: An epic battle of good vs. evil Look at Google today, which best represents the Democrats and their cheating, lying, censoring and oppression of truth. Google is run by Democrats who absolutely despise America, hate Christian white men and who literally seek the destruction of all knowledge they cannot control. (This all came out in a bombshell internal Google report that was recently leaked to Breitbart News.) After banning Natural News, InfoWars and thousands of other liberty-oriented websites and video channels, Google now claims it’s a “conspiracy theory” to believe they exert any bias at all. Google is saturated with evil, which is exactly what enables the discredited technology company to build suppression and surveillance systems for evil communist regimes like Red China, where religion is criminalized by the evil government regime that Google serves. These actions on the part of Google have recently led to Google engineers to flee the company to escape the intense evil that’s present there. To save humanity, we must defeat not merely Google but all forms of evil that now dominate our society. In addition to Google, we must also defeat and dismantle the DNC, the CDC, the FDA and the entire left-wing media complex that brainwashes humanity into a suicide cult (through planned disinformation, the embracing of suicidal technologies like 5G, the promotion of life-damaging herbicides, and so on). Recognize that the Left is not a political movement but an eradication army that is systematically working to destroy humanity and transform the planet into a cold, lifeless dead zone. They cannot be reasoned with or educated with rational ideas. They are immune to reason because they aren’t humans on the inside. They must be defeated at every level of society in order to rid our world of demonic evil. —- End thought experiment —- Or maybe they’re all just really stupid morons who aren’t possessed by demons but are somehow incredibly stupid humans, in which case we need to defeat them anyway.

Mob Brutality

By Hal Lindsey

Senator Ted Cruz made a reservation for himself and his wife at a local Washington, DC restaurant. Someone at the restaurant told an Antifa group called “Smash Racism DC” that he would be there. Protestors gathered an hour before Senator Cruz arrived. They sat covertly in the restaurant’s bar area while they waited. As the Senator and his wife approached their table, Antifa sprung its ambush. They chanted, “We believe survivors!” And they kept on robotically chanting those words throughout their attack. Those words, by the way, are almost meaningless. We all believe those we know to be survivors. But the rest of us have to measure evidence when deciding the validity of accusations. Here’s what the group really means with that chant. “We believe all accusers.” But even that’s not entirely true. They apparently do not believe the accuser of Keith Ellison — the first Muslim elected to the US Congress and Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee. The protestors were in the faces of the Senator and his wife. They blocked the way, even as the couple tried to quietly leave the restaurant. But, of course, they shouldn’t have had to leave at all. According to the Washington Post, waiters struggled to get the door open for the couple to leave. “Finally, the waiters got the door open, then slammed it shut again as soon as the Cruzes had walked out into the night. The crowd inside whooped. ‘This is what’ll happen to you if you support Kavanaugh!’ a man warned the other patrons as they passed back through the bar.” Smash Racism DC put out a statement later that night. It ended by saying, “This is a message to Ted Cruz, Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump and the rest of the racist, sexist, transphobic, and homophobic right-wing scum: You are not safe. We will find you.” This is a violent threat made by violent people to violent ends. Last year, a man with a similar mindset attacked members of Congress practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity. He shot four people, seriously injuring Steve Scalise of Louisiana. Later, Senator Rand Paul was attacked by a neighbor, and beaten within an inch of his life. He had several broken ribs and a damaged lung. Over time, he developed pneumonia in that lung. His wife, Kelley, wrote, “The average person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Since November 3, my husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain. He has not had a single night's sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing.” In recent days, US Senators have been threatened and accosted in the very halls of the US Capitol. A few days ago, a candidate for the Colorado State Senate was shot at while sitting in her vehicle. In Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, and other countries, violence has become a significant factor in elections. And now the United States stands oh-so-close to that same terrible reality. Jesus said the last days would be like the days of Noah and Lot. Genesis tells us that Noah’s time was characterized by violence. We often associate the time of Lot with the prevalence of homosexuality. But it wasn’t just that. It was also a time of violent mobs. Pray for America. And don’t forget to pray for Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, and those other places living under the growing threat of political violence and mob brutality.

Trump, no longer ratings gold, loses his prime-time spot on Fox News

In a crucial period with the midterms less than a month away, some in the White House are worried that the president is losing a megaphone to his base.

By JASON SCHWARTZ and GABBY ORR 10/10/2018 07:54 PM EDT

President Donald Trump loves to brag about ratings, but he’s not getting them anymore. As he’s ramped up his rally schedule ahead of the midterms, viewership numbers for the raucous prime-time events have been roughly similar to — sometimes dipping below — Fox News’ regular programming, and the network has recently stopped airing most evening events in full. During three Trump rallies last week, Fox News showed clips and highlights from his speeches but stuck largely with its normal weekday prime-time programming. On Saturday, when “Fox Report Weekend” and “Justice with Judge Jeanine” would ordinarily air, the network showed Trump’s speech from Topeka, Kan., in full. But on Tuesday, a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, was particularly hard to find — it was not aired live on any major network, and even C-SPAN cut away for other news. And on Wednesday night, as Trump took the stage in Erie, Pa., at 7 p.m., Fox News stuck with its coverage of Hurricane Michael. Since Trump took office, CNN and MSNBC have mostly declined to air his campaign rallies, though, like Fox News, they’ll typically carry any presidential speeches or comments to reporters. Fox still provides livestreams of the campaign events online, but during a crucial period, with the midterms less than a month away, some in the White House are worried that the president is losing a prime-time megaphone to his base. One senior White House official was unsure why the network would decide to cut away from presidential rallies, saying officials planned “to look into that” and wouldn’t be surprised if White House communications director Bill Shine, a former Fox News executive, was in touch with former colleagues about the trend. The loss of national coverage is equally, if not more, concerning to the candidates on whose behalf Trump is traveling the country. “It exposes us to a national audience that we normally don’t get to,” a Senate Republican campaign staffer said of the coverage of Trump rallies. “We tend to see lots of new sign-ups and small-dollar donations. There’s obviously folks streaming [rallies] online, but being able to be onstage with the president in front of a prime-time audience is huge for a campaign trying to reach conservatives across the country who will open up their wallets.” A source close to Trump described the declining coverage as a “huge loss on the state and local level for Republicans because they’re certainly not going to get any of that on other cable networks.” “If they stop taking them completely, that might create a problem,” this person said. “Trump is a massive consumer of the media, so he may be disappointed.” Neither Fox News nor the White House responded to requests for comment. But from Fox’s perspective, Trump is no longer a sure bet to beat Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity or Laura Ingraham. For instance, on Aug. 30, Fox News’ 8 p.m. hour was mostly consumed by Trump’s rally in Evansville, Ind., earning 2.536 million viewers, according to Nielsen, compared to the 2.8 million viewers Carlson averaged at that time during 2018’s third quarter. In 2017, when Trump rallied much less frequently, his events at times popped for more than 4 million viewers on Fox News — a number he hasn’t come close to in 2018, according to a POLITICO assessment of Nielsen ratings. This year, numbers have typically ranged from 2.5 to 3.5 million, per Nielsen, depending on a variety of factors, including day, time and whether there’s something big on another channel. The biggest change is the sheer number of rallies. With so many, “they don’t want to give up so much prime-time real estate,” said one person familiar with Fox News’ decision making. Trump’s campaign speeches tend to follow a similar pattern, and this person said network officials’ fear was that too much repetition would lead to lower ratings. That could particularly be a problem during a busy news period like the first week of October, when Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination was still up in the air. “They’re going with the route they think will give the best ratings performance,” the person said. Compounding the issue, Fox News can’t take commercial breaks while Trump is speaking — he often goes on for more than an hour — costing the network some of its best advertising slots. With so many rallies and little promise of a ratings boost, there’s not much incentive for the network to clear air time. It can also be frustrating to plan an hourlong show knowing each block might be swapped for a standard presidential stump speech, said former Fox News host Eric Bolling, who left the network in September 2017 but whose program was often interrupted by rally coverage during his tenure. Not too long ago, the president’s preferred network was taking jabs at competitors for declining to air the entirety of his remarks. “Trump rally live & only on Fox News, other networks ignore presidential rally,” read a chyron during a June appearance by Trump in Duluth, Minn., as CNN and MSNBC stuck to their standard shows. At least four more times between June and July, Fox News traded its prime-time lineup for live coverage of the president’s rallies when other cable news networks chose alternative programming. But Trump has increased his campaign travel considerably in the final weeks before the midterm elections, leaving Fox News to decide between wall-to-wall coverage of his rallies or more selective airtime for the president. One GOP campaign operative said nightly rallies aired live and in full would probably subject Fox News to even greater scrutiny. The channel has often been described as a “propaganda machine” by Trump’s political opponents, many of whom claim its coverage of his administration has at times been sycophantic. “If every night Trump does a rally, a station carries it, you just become the president’s station,” the GOP operative said. The president hasn’t faulted the network so far for recent changes to its programming. At his Tuesday-night rally in Iowa — which wasn’t aired — he heaped praise on his “great friends” at Fox News. “We got a lot of good people. Do we like Tucker?” he asked the crowd. “I like Tucker.”

Obama had secret plan to validate Clinton victory if Trump didn't accept it: report

By Lukas Mikelionis | Fox News

Former President Obama had a plan to validate the 2016 election in the event that then-candidate Donald Trump lost and challenged the results. Obama administration officials told New York magazine that a bipartisan plan was in place just in time for the election to certify the results and reveal the intelligence community’s claims that Russian interference supported Trump’s candidacy. Such a measure was devised after Trump said the election was “rigged” and joked on the campaign trail that he wouldn’t accept the election results if he lost. “I will totally accept the result of this great and historic presidential election,” he said. “If I win.” The plan to validate the election involved former secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. Former presidents and congressional Republicans also participated in the plan, the outlet reported. Ben Rhodes, a former top aide of Obama, told the magazine that the administration feared Trump wouldn’t accept the election result had Hillary Clinton won. “It wasn’t a hypothetical,” he said. “Trump was already saying it on the campaign trail.” Jen Psaki, communications director for Obama, minimized the plan’s significance, saying it just one of a number of “red-teaming” discussions about the potential fallout following the 2016 election, including pro-Trump protests and political division. She said that Obama’s unpopularity among “a portion of the population” meant there was a need for a plan to validate the election. “For them, just having him say the election was legitimate was not going to be enough,” she said. “I don’t think there is any indication to suggest that if that’s where things headed, [Trump] would accept it,” Psaki added. “He’s laying the groundwork for delegitimizing the process now — questioning our institutions, attacking their leadership. This is all fodder for his supporters to work with in the event that things go down a dark path for him.” Lukas Mikelionis is a reporter for FoxNews.com. Follow him on Twitter @LukasMikelionis.

Mexico's Morgues Are Overflowing As Its Murder Rate Rises

4:31

Heard on All Things Considered

Carrie Kahn 2010 October 10, 20185:24 PM ET

Rising rates of homicides and drug violence have created an overflow at Mexico's morgues. So much so, that several cities have resorted to storing dead bodies in refrigerated trailers. This sparked a national scandal after some residents complained about the stench coming from one of the trailers parked in their neighborhood in the western city of Guadalajara. Authorities say there are two trailers packed with human remains, and dozens more bodies stacked up in the city's morgue. They say there are 444 in all. Some of the bodies have been in storage for more than three years. The trailers are now back at the morgue. And María del Rosillo Limón Maldonado says the whole place reeks of death. "The smell penetrates you, totally envelops you," Limón says, standing in front of the huge stark white building. Limón and her husband are from the state of Puebla and saw news of the trailers on TV. Their daughter, Paulina, has been missing since 2015. She was 19 at the time and 4 months pregnant. They think that maybe her body is in one of the trailers. "We have seen so many bodies during these long three years searching for her," says Limón. People from all over Mexico have flooded to the morgue in Guadalajara in search of their relatives. About a hundred show up every day. Homicides are at record rates in Mexico. Nearly 30,000 people were murdered last year. This year is on track to be worse, with more than 33,000 homicides registered by the end of August. María Ramos also waits outside the huge Guadalajara morgue. Her 34-year-old son went missing in October. She says authorities took her DNA sample back then, but according to the news reports she's seen, they haven't done anything to identify the hundreds of bodies inside. "How am I ever going to find my son?" she sobs. "I feel so helpless and furious at the same time." The morgue's new director, Carlos Daniel Barba Rodríguez, says he has a lot of work ahead of him. "I will have to get done as quick as possible, all the work that these people didn't get done in the last three years," he says in an interview in his office. The overwhelming stench of the trailers permeates the walls. Five officials, including the past director, have been fired since the trailers were discovered and the scandal erupted. The governor has given Barba Rodríguez until Oct. 15 to clear the bodies out. "We'll do everything we can to make that deadline," he says, but he adds they will take the necessary time to do it right. Confusion over a new law prohibiting the cremation of crime victims caused the backlog, says Barba Rodríguez, along with negligence by the former director. Calls to that former director weren't returned. He has denied any wrongdoing. Barba Rodríguez says once proper identification of the bodies is done, they can legally be interred. But officials in Guadalajara face another problem — the seemingly endless arrival of new bodies. In a hillside neighborhood on the outskirts of Guadalajara, police officers climbed into their truck and drove out of Robles on a recent night. They just finished recovering four bodies from a clandestine shallow grave in an empty field behind the rows of houses. "We are no longer known as Robles, now it's the Robles graveyard," says a resident who would only give me her first name, María. She says she's scared of the drug gangs that are dumping bodies here. Homicides have exploded in the state of Jalisco, home to the country's now largest and most vicious drug gang, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. Last year more than 1,300 murders were reported in Jalisco. This year's figure already tops 1,400. Meanwhile, workers at one of the city's largest cemeteries are quickly building rows of concrete crypts for the hundreds of bodies still at the morgue. Dozens of bodies have already been placed here, including those from families that can't afford a funeral, like María del Transito Zamora. Her son was one of the first identified among those in the morgue. "I wanted to have the funeral here at my home," she says in the living room of her small residence, where a picture of her son and grandson are surrounded by white roses and votive candles. But the 68-year-old mother and grandmother says the authorities, who only paid for the crypt interment, wouldn't allow it. It took Transito Zamora months to get her son's body out of the morgue. She's still waiting for authorities to allow her to give her grandson a proper goodbye. Both men were abducted together earlier this year, but she says officials still haven't figured out which body is her grandson's among the hundreds still at the morgue.

‘Great Depression’ ahead? IMF sounds dire warning

Massive government debts and eroded fiscal buffers since 2008 suggest global dominos await a single market crash

By William Pesek October 9, 2018 3:26 PM (UTC+8)

Is another “Great Depression” on the horizon? It would be easier to dismiss these words from Nouriel Roubini, Marc Faber or other doom-and-gloom prognosticators. Coming from Christine Lagarde’s team, though, they take on a new dimension of scary. The International Monetary Fund head isn’t known for breathlessness on the world stage. And yet the IMF sounded downright alarmist in its latest Global Financial Stability report, stating that “large challenges loom for the global economy to prevent a second Great Depression.” Even some market bears were taken aback. “Why,” asks Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse Blog would the IMF use this phrase “in a report that they know the entire world will read?” Perhaps because, unfortunately, the findings of other referees of global risks – including the Bank for International Settlements – hint at similar dislocations. Ten years after the Lehman Brothers crisis, these worrisome warnings that will be explored in depth at this week’s annual IMF meeting in Bali. The tranquil setting, though, will offer few respites from cracks appearing in markets everywhere – from Italy to China to Southeast Asia, where currencies are cratering like it’s 1998 again. Potential flashpoints and a long line of dominos Italy is the current flashpoint – and the latest target of “domino effect” chatter in frothy world markets. China’s shadow-banking bubble, and the extreme opacity and regulations that enable it, also came in for criticism. And, of course, the 800-pound beast in any room where global investors gather these days: Donald Trump’s assault on world trade. But the real worry is the health of foundations underpinning these and other risks. As the BIS warned on Sept. 23, the global economy faces a potential “relapse” of the “Lehman shock” of 2008. “Things look rather fragile,” says BIS chief economist Claudio Borio. Equally worrying, he adds: “There’s little left in the medicine chest to nurse the patient back to health or care for him in case of a relapse.” A similar connection of dangerous dots runs through the IMF’s latest report. The big problem, says Malhar Nabar, deputy chief of IMF research, is the one that investors tend to ignore or explain away: how much of the Lehman fallout is still with us. “There are many countries, even today, that are operating below pre-crisis trends,” Nabar says. “And what’s interesting is not just countries that suffered banking crises in 2007-2008 but also other countries outside of that epicenter that were affected through trade links or through financial links.” Increased inequality is one troubling side-effect. Yet Nabar highlights, “possible long-lasting effects of the crisis on potential growth” that might seem tangential to Wall Street’s crash – lower birth rates, lower fertility and even “some evidence of slower technology adoption.” All this, he says, “can affect productivity growth and potential growth going forward.” There is no doubt that many of the official policy actions taken since 2008 “seemed to have helped limit the harm.” But the costs of those efforts are only beginning to get calculated. 2008 crisis measures cast long, dark shadow Excessively loose monetary policies have exacerbated the widening inequality trends unfolding pre-Lehman crackup. At the same time, there’s been, in the words of the IMF, a “large accumulation of public debt and the erosion of fiscal buffers in many economies following the crisis point to the urgency of rebuilding defenses to prepare for the next downturn.” Yet all the diplomatic speak in the world can’t sugarcoat the roughly $250 trillion crisis unfolding in slow motion. That’s the level to which the world’s debt burden ballooned since the Lehman crash. That’s 18 times China’s annual gross domestic product. And with official rates from Washington to Tokyo still at ultra-low levels historically, there’s little ammunition to battle the next reckoning. Italy’s debt woes are an obvious weak link. One reason: just as with US officials after 2008, Europe did more to treat the symptoms of its woes than address underlying causes. So is China’s unbalanced economy, one being trolled by US President Donald Trump’s tariffs arms race. This year’s 6.4% drop in the yuan is raising eyebrows for good reason. For one thing, it coincides with a marked slowdown in exports, industrial production, fixed-asset investment and an 18% plunge in Shanghai stocks this year. For another, it raised the specter of sizable defaults on dollar debt, which would reverberate through the global economy. And therein lies Asia’s problem. Asia’s exposure In general, the region has journeyed a long way since the darkest days of 1997 and 1998. Financial systems are stronger and governments are more transparent. Currencies are more flexible. Foreign-exchange reserves have been rebuilt. That leaves advanced economies from South Korea to Singapore reasonably well equipped to withstand fresh turmoil. But there are cracks in the region’s developing markets, as the ferocity of currency plunges in India, Indonesia and the Philippines show. Investors may argue they’ve learned from past misstates, but still fall prey to herd mentalities. It’s an urgent wakeup call for India’s Narendra Modi, Indonesia’s Joko Widodo and Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines to narrow current-account and budget deficits. Leaders also need to devise macroprudential firewalls against global contagion. The problem for Asia: contagion could come as much from the West and its own backyard. Trump’s fiscal incompetence – including a $1.5 trillion tax cut America didn’t need – could roil global rates and the dollar. A recent spike in 10-year yields to 3.2%, the highest in seven years, could be a bad omen. Trump, too, is publicly dueling with his hand-picked Federal Reserve chairman. And given Trump’s legal woes, the odds of new tariffs or even military action to distract voters can’t be ruled out. Any new assault on China could devastate Japan’s reflation effort. True, epic Bank of Japan easing and a weaker yen boosted exports. It pushed Nikkei 225 index stocks to 27-year highs. Yet Asia’s No. 2 economy is in harm’s way if the US-China brawl trumps the region’s key growth engine. Even before most policy makers and financiers arrive in Bali this week, the IMF is signaling that global growth has plateaued. It downgraded output to 3.7% from 3.9%. That not the end of the world, per se. But with trade battles intensifying and dormant old devils re-emerging, all bets could soon be off. That is a lot more than depressing: it’s terrifying.

Hurricane Michael: Two dead, 280 unaccounted for as ‘jaw-dropping power’ lashes Florida

FLORIDA was today reeling from the “jaw-dropping” power of Hurricane Michael, the third-most powerful storm ever to lash the United States mainland, with one man confirmed dead and concern growing for 280 people who defied evacuation orders

By Ciaran McGrath PUBLISHED: 09:42, Thu, Oct 11, 2018 | UPDATED: 14:41, Thu, Oct 11, 2018

Michael brought roof-shredding winds, raging surf and torrential rains - before being downgraded to a tropical storm as it headed through neighbouring Georgia. Its rapid intensification as it churned north over the Gulf of Mexico caught many by surprise – and television news footage during the day showed many homes submerged in floodwaters in Mexico Beach, where the fate of about 280 residents who authorities said defied evacuation orders was unknown. The fiercest storm to hit Florida in 80 years came ashore as a Category 4 hurricane, making it the biggest storm on record to strike the Florida Panhandle. It made landfall on Wednesday afternoon near Mexico Beach, about 20 miles southeast of Panama City in Florida's Panhandle region, with top sustained winds reaching an eye-watering 155 miles per hour (249 kph) – two mph short of making it a rare Category 5. The storm's intensity waned as it pushed inland and curled northeasterly into Georgia, and it was downgraded to a tropical storm, with top sustained winds diminishing to 60 miles per hour, early on Thursday. The governors of North and South Carolina urged residents to brace for more heavy rain and storm-force winds as Michael ploughs northward up the Atlantic seaboard. The Carolinas are still recovering from severe flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence less than a month ago. The National Hurricane Center said Michael would pass through the Carolinas on Thursday, dumping as much as 8 inches of rain in some areas. Up to a foot (30 cm) of rain was forecast in Florida. Gadsden County sheriff's spokeswoman Anglie Hightower said a "male subject" was killed by a tree toppling onto his house in Greensboro, Florida, near the state capital, Tallahassee, in the first report of a fatality from the hurricane. Floods, heavily damaged buildings, uprooted trees and downed power lines appeared widespread in coastal areas near the storm's landfall. Buildings in Panama City were demolished, partially collapsed or without roofs amid deserted streets littered with debris, twisted, fallen tree trunks and dangling wires.  Authorities said the full extent of devastation would not be known until after daybreak on Thursday. In the meantime, curfews were imposed across much of the region. Bill Manning, a 63-year-old grocery clerk, who fled his camper van in Panama City for a hotel only to see the electricity there go out, said: "My God, it's scary. I didn't expect all this.” By Wednesday night, more than 403,000 homes and businesses were without electricity in Florida, Georgia and Alabama, utility companies said. Twenty miles south of Mexico Beach, floodwaters were more than 7-1/2 feet (2.3 meters) deep near Apalachicola, a town of about 2,300 residents, hurricane centre chief Ken Graham said. Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson said: “There are so many downed power lines and trees that it's almost impossible to get through the city.” The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said on Tuesday an estimated 500,000 Florida residents had been ordered or urged to seek higher ground before the storm in 20 counties spanning a 200-mile (320-km) stretch of shoreline. But Brad Kieserman of the American Red Cross said on Wednesday as many as 320,000 people on Florida's Gulf Coast had disregarded evacuation notices. An estimated 6,000 evacuees took cover in emergency shelters, most in Florida, with numbers expected to swell to 20,000 across five states by week's end, he added. Bo Patterson, the mayor of Port St Joe, just south of Mexico Beach, described the scene outside as "very, very scary." He was one of about 2,500 of the town's 3,500 residents who ended up staying put, many of them caught off guard by the storm's rapid escalation as it approached.

Hurricane Michael increased in strength as it made a direct hit on the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday afternoon as a catastrophic Category 4 hurricane, pushing a deadly storm surge and whipping the coast with 155 mph winds. The eye of the monstrous hurricane made landfall near Mexico Beach just before 2pm and the eyewall came ashore minutes earlier between Panama City and St. Vincent Island. Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 45 miles from the center and were tearing buildings apart in Panama City Beach. Beachfront structures could be seen collapsing and metal roofing materials were blown away amid the heavy rain. Forecasters said rainfall could reach up to a foot and the life-threatening storm surge could swell to 14 feet. By 3pm, Michael still had top sustained winds of 150 mph as its core moved over Florida's Panhandle. The National Weather Service says tornadoes are possible across the Florida Panhandle, southeast Georgia and southern South Carolina through Thursday morning as the hurricane now moves inland. Michael, which was supercharged by abnormally warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico, is one of the most powerful storms to hit the U.S. mainland in nearly 50 years. Authorities told residents along the affected areas of Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast on Wednesday morning that they had run out of time to evacuate and should hunker down. More than 375,000 people had been urged or ordered to evacuate, but emergency authorities lamented that many people ignored the warnings and seemed to think they could ride it out. Gaining frightening fury overnight, the hurricane's leading edge began lashing the shoreline hours before Michael's center was expected to blow ashore. A Red Cross official said it's possible that as many as 320,000 people on Florida's Gulf Coast did not evacuate and are likely riding out the storm. Emergency managers say they don't know how many left the area, but there were about 6,000 people in 80 shelters in five states, including nearly 1,200 who are still in shelters following Hurricane Florence. After the hurricane made landfall, Florida Governor Rick Scott urged those who didn't evacuate to stay in place. 'We are still in the midst of a Category 4 catastrophic and historic storm. I urge all Floridians in the Panhandle to continue sheltering in place, and listening to local authorities. Stay inside until directed further so that our recovery teams can move in as quickly as possible,' he tweeted. Scott had earlier said the hurricane would bring 'unimaginable devastation' and said he was 'scared to death' for those who ignored evacuation orders. 'Our biggest concern is… the people that chose not to evacuate,' he told CNN. 'I worry about them every second and I hope there're no children there who didn't have the choice on their own to make these decisions. 'I'm just praying for them and, as soon as this passes, we will be out there doing everything we can to rescue everybody… We will take care of each other.' The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Brock Long, told President Trump in a briefing shortly before the eye of the storm hit that it was the 'worst kind' of hurricane. 'Storm surge estimates are anywhere between nine and 14 feet. Storm surge is going to be the worse where eye makes landfall - just to the east or south of where the eye makes landfall… Coupled with that you have over 145 mph winds. Structures built before 2001 are not designed to handle that type of wind, typically,' Long said. Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio told CNN it would be a 'killer hurricane' and warned anyone in the path of the storm surge: 'You're going to die'. Residents and tourists were told to flee low-lying areas in at least 22 counties along the shore in Florida's Panhandle and adjacent Big Bend region. Meteorologists said it had the potential to become one of the worst storms in the history of the region as they watched satellite imagery in complete awe while the storm intensified. 'I guess it's the worst-case scenario. I don't think anyone would have experienced this in the Panhandle,' meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com said. 'This is going to have structure-damaging winds along the coast and hurricane force winds inland.' National Hurricane Center Meteorologist Dennis Feltgen added: 'We are in new territory. The historical record, going back to 1851, finds no Category 4 hurricane ever hitting the Florida Panhandle.' A satellite image of Michael took the terrifying shape of a skull as it roared closer to the Florida Panhandle as a fierce Category 4 storm on Tuesday. The sinister-looking red and gray skull appeared briefly on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration infrared satellite images. Hours ahead of landfall, seawater was already lapping over the docks at Massalina Bayou near downtown Panama City, and knee-deep water was rising against buildings in St. Marks, which sits on an inlet south of Tallahassee, Florida's capital.  Huge waves pounded the white sands of Panama City Beach, shooting frothy water all the way to the base of wooden stairs that lead to the beach. More than 5,000 evacuees sought shelter in Tallahassee, which is about 25 miles from the coast but is covered by live oak and pine trees that can fall and cause power outages even in smaller storms. President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency for the entire state of Florida, freeing up federal assistance to supplement state and local disaster responses. About 2,500 National Guard troops were deployed to assist with evacuations and storm preparations, and more than 4,000 others were on standby. Some 17,000 utility restoration workers were also on call. Trump was briefed on the hurricane on Wednesday prior to it making landfall and said he would visit the area early next week. He acknowledged that a lot of the residents in the area were poor and said it was probably tough to leave. Some of the storm's most significant early impact was to offshore energy production. U.S. producers in the Gulf cut oil production by about 40 percent and natural gas output by 28 percent on Tuesday, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said. Some officials were worried by what they weren't seeing just ahead of the storm - a rush of evacuees. 'I am not seeing the level of traffic on the roadways that I would expect when we've called for the evacuation of 75 percent of this county,' Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said Tuesday. Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson said the city, which could suffer some of the worst of the storm surge, was under mandatory evacuation orders. 'My greatest concern is that some people are just now starting to take this storm seriously and are evacuating,' he told CNN. 'And I just hope the others that have not made that decision get out while the roads are still passably and before the bridges close.' State offices, schools and universities were closed through the end of the week in Panhandle counties. Multiple airports were closed on Wednesday, including Tallahassee International Airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, Pensacola International Airport and Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport. A total of 453 flights had been canceled on Wednesday across the country, with many occurring in the Florida area. Amtrak has also modified its service and is waiving fees for passengers who change their reservations. The storm appeared to be so powerful that it is expected to remain a hurricane as it moves over Georgia early Thursday. Forecasters said it will unleash damaging wind and rain all the way into the Carolinas, which are still recovering from Hurricane Florence's epic flooding. Michael is forecast to dump torrential rain over Florida, Alabama and Georgia, as well as the Carolinas and into Virginia. Up to a foot of rainfall was forecast for some areas. Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan bluntly advised residents choosing to ride it out that first-responders won't be able to reach them while Michael smashes into the coast. 'If you decide to stay in your home and a tree falls on your house or the storm surge catches you and you're now calling for help, there's no one that can respond to help you,' Morgan said at a news conference. In the small Panhandle city of Apalachicola, Mayor Van Johnson Sr. said the 2,300 residents were frantically preparing for what could be a strike unlike any seen there in decades. Many filled sandbags and boarded up homes and lined up to buy gas and groceries before leaving town. 'We're looking at a significant storm with significant impact, possibly greater than I've seen in my 59 years of life,' Johnson said of his city on the shore of Apalachicola Bay, which where about 90 percent of Florida's oysters are harvested. There will be no shelters open in Wakulla County, the sheriff's office warned on Facebook, because they are rated safe only for hurricanes with top sustained winds below 111 mph. With Michael's winds projected to be even stronger, residents were urged to evacuate inland. 'This storm has the potential to be a historic storm, please take heed,' the sheriff's office said in the post. Georgia governor Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency in 92 counties on Tuesday morning. In neighboring Alabama, Governor Kay Ivey declared an emergency for the entire state on Monday in anticipation of wind damage, heavy rains and power outages. North Carolina's governor said he was afraid Hurricane Michael could slow the recovery for homeowners dealing with wind or flooding from Hurricane Florence. Gov. Roy Cooper said Tuesday that Michael isn't expected to hit his state as hard as Florence did last month, but people shouldn't let their guard down, even if they're suffering from cleanup fatigue. He said many houses that suffered roof damage in Florence are still covered in tarps and could be vulnerable to strong wind and rain. As the storm moved north on Tuesday it battered Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba with drenching rains and winds of up to 80 mph. Torrential downpours and flash-flooding over the weekend caused 13 deaths in Central America after Michael formed off the coast of northern Honduras. Hurricane Michael would be the first major hurricane to hit the panhandle since Hurricane Dennis in 2005, which made landfall near Pensacola, according to hurricane center data.

Hurricane Michael turns into a terrifying skull in satellite image as monstrous Category 4 storm roars closer to Florida

A satellite image of Hurricane Michael took the shape of a skull on Tuesday

Skull appeared briefly on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite images as the storm moved closer to Florida

A satellite image of Hurricane Michael has taken the terrifying shape of a skull as it roars closer to Florida as a fierce Category 4 storm. The sinister-looking skull appeared briefly on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite images on Tuesday as the hurricane moved closer to the Florida Panhandle. The image appeared to show a gray skull with a single, fierce red eye. It was taken with an infrared camera lens and shows the skull surrounded by a sea of red and green. A similar thing happened with Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Accuweather reports. Michael roared nearer to the Florida Panhandle as a still-growing Category 4 hurricane on Wednesday, lashing wind and rain and pushing a storm surge onto white-sand beaches and coastal communities hours before making landfall. The unexpected brute quickly sprang from a weekend tropical depression and grew swiftly into what could be one of the Panhandle's worst hurricanes in history, with destructive wind, up to a foot of rain and a life-threatening storm surge of up to 13 feet. Top sustained winds were reported to be near 140 mph at 5am. Michael's eye was about 140 miles from Panama City and 130 miles from Apalachicola, but moving relatively fast at 13 mph. Tropical-storm force winds extending 185 miles from the center were already lashing the coast. Florida officials said roughly 375,000 people up and down the Gulf Coast had been urged or ordered to evacuate. Evacuations spanned 22 counties from the Florida Panhandle into north central Florida. But civilians don't have to follow orders, and authorities feared many failed to heed their calls to get out of the way as the hard-charging storm intensified over 84-degree Gulf of Mexico water. 'I guess it's the worst-case scenario. I don't think anyone would have experienced this in the Panhandle,' meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com said. 'This is going to have structure-damaging winds along the coast and hurricane force winds inland.' Meteorologists watched in real time as a new government satellite showed the hurricane's eye tightening, surrounded by lightning that lit it up 'like a Christmas tree'.

The S-300 system in Syria won't have a friend or foe identification system, which could lead to serious mistakes being made by inexperienced operators

By Stephen Bryen October 7, 2018 10:48 AM (UTC+8)

The rear doors of the huge nearly 200-ton An-124 transport aircraft dropped to the ground, and in a video supplied by Russia’s military, two Transport, Erector and Launch (TEL) vehicles, each weighing tens of tons, drove down the ramp and onto Syrian territory. The S-300 delivered to Syria – the video shows the TEL with missile canisters but not the radar systems and command and control vehicles that form part of the S-300 – is a major upgrade and escalation promoted by Russia’s military as a retaliation against Israel. Russian Defense Ministry The rear doors of the huge nearly 200-ton An-124 transport aircraft dropped to the ground, and in a video supplied by Russia’s military, two Transport, Erector and Launch (TEL) vehicles, each weighing tens of tons, drove down the ramp and onto Syrian territory. The S-300 delivered to Syria – the video shows the TEL with missile canisters but not the radar systems and command and control vehicles that form part of the S-300 is a major upgrade and escalation promoted by Russia’s military as a retaliation against Israel. The dailyReport Must-reads from across Asia - directly to your inbox The S-300 is a long-range air defense system designed for use in the European theater and ill-suited to the confines of Syrian airspace, bordering on Iraq, Jordan and Israel. We do not know if the system delivered is new: it is probable it is an old S-300 freshly painted. While the delivery of the S-300 is the Russian Ministry of Defense’s response to Israel, who they blame for the loss of an IL-20M surveillance plane shot down by Syrian air defenses on September 17, the delivery of the S-300 may cause the Russians more problems than they want to think about, including the possibility of losing more aircraft to “friendly” fire. The Russians will train the Syrian army on how to use the S-300 system. That will take time, and the training provided in 2007 to the Syrians for their existing anti-aircraft systems has proven inadequate. With high attrition in the Syrian military, it would be hard to believe any of the trained operators are still serving. If they were, they would still need to be retrained since their previous instruction was 11 years ago. Poorly trained military The Syrian military it seems is poorly organized and run and because of tremendous attrition during the Syrian civil war, the quality of recruits appears to have dropped even further. The Syrian military and police have lost 99,868 soldiers, with another 64,041 losses of pro-government militia fighters. To get an idea of the scope of the government losses, Syria in the past fielded an army of 304,000, of which half were reserves. Combat losses are an aggregate but don’t include non-combat deaths and desertions. According to recent research, “an estimated 100,000 Syrian soldiers and officers have left their positions since the beginning of the crisis in 2011. While many have deserted to flee the conflict and take refuge abroad, a smaller number of military personnel have defected to the opposition.” What all of this means in practical terms is that recruiting and keeping talented people in the Syrian military has to be a huge challenge; on top of that many of the recruits are raw and inexperienced as well as uneducated. The current size of the Syrian army, post-2015, is no more than 100,000. Commentator Mihail Khodarenok has written, translated from Russian: “While militias, Iranian volunteers, Hezbollah and PMCs fight in lieu of the Syrian army, Bashar Assad’s soldier busy themselves with collecting bribes at checkpoints. This view becomes more and more widespread among military experts aware of the actual situation in Syria.” Operating a modern air defense system is a challenge. The Syrian army’s performance so far with air defense has demonstrated that they really don’t know what they are doing and often fire their anti-aircraft systems in order to avoid criticism from their superiors, which is why they keep on shooting long after the threat has left the area. The Russians may now have made it far worse, because the S-300’s range is greater than the older systems in use in Syria. According to public information, the radar of the S-300 could potentially cover northern Israel’s airspace. Will Syrian gunners shoot their missiles into Israel? If they do, it is likely to trigger a general war. Friendly or unfriendly targets Here’s some technical details: Different radars are supplied with the S-300 including “Tin Shield” ST-68U with a range of up to 150km (93 miles) and the 96L6 Cheesboard 3D radar with a range of 300km (186.4 miles). The S-300 model exported to Syria is probably the S-300PMU, or an old version of the S-300 in Russia’s inventory, and it has 5V554 interceptor missiles with a range of 150km but also can be fitted with other types of interceptor missiles. The distance between Damascus, where the S-300 may be headed, and Mt Bental overlooking the Golan Heights and part of Israel is 60km, or 37.3 miles. The biggest problem for Russia that the S-300 does not solve is the absence of systems in Syria to sort out friendly and unfriendly targets. These are known today as IFF systems – Identification Friend or Foe. US and NATO IFF is multipurpose: it provides information on the type of aircraft, its speed and direction and it works with codes that are changed on a daily basis to prevent spoofing. The latest IFF system, known as Mode 5, does all this, provides frequency hopping and encryption to conceal transmitted information from an enemy. It can also link to civilian ADS-B – automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast – and to GPS satellites for navigation. US and European aircraft must have ADS-B by 2019. Modern military aircraft in the United States typically get FAA certification and the Defense Department normally requires all new aircraft to be in compliance with FAA regulations and get FAA certification. IFF systems can be used on aircraft, ground vehicles, naval vessels, missiles and even on soldiers to try and cut down on friendly fire accidents. Israel has developed a mini-IFF for unmanned aircraft and the US is working on similar systems. Until recently the Russians have had trouble with IFF. In 2008 the Russians shot down four of the six warplanes they lost in the Georgia conflict. General Vladimir Shamanov reported: “In South Ossetia the IFF system, in fact, did not work, and it was very hard for our units to recognize whose equipment they were seeing – ours or Georgian.” Russia lost Su-25 ground attack aircraft and a Tu-22M3 long-range bomber. Several other Russian aircraft were badly damaged but survived. In a similar manner, when special Russian forces shot down Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine in July, 2014, the BUK missile system either lacked IFF or the irregular operators paid no attention to it or didn’t know what it meant. Civilian aircraft are equipped with transponders with a code they receive from air traffic controllers. Alternative systems It was the BUK system that was also responsible for shooting down the four Russian warplanes in South Ossetia where the IFF system did not work. In Syria there are eight BUK complexes – model BUK-M2E – delivered in 2011. Russia’s primary IFF system is called Kremnij. It was upgraded to the 2M version because all of Russia’s IFF system had been spoofed by NATO. The Kremnij has two modes – peacetime and wartime. The wartime version is only allowed to be used for war directly involving Russian territory. The peacetime version is jammable and spoofable. Another Russian IFF is called Parol. It is a replacement for Kremnij-2M, but Kremnij remains in use. The Parol has a more sophisticated waveform and uses encryption like Western systems. Russia did not provide IFF to Syrian air defense systems nor to Syrian aircraft, meaning that the Syrians can only guess what they are shooting at under the best of circumstances. Russia held back on supplying IFF to Syria in fear that compromise of their IFF system would weaken the central focus of Russian defenses in European Russia. This means that the S-300 system delivered to Syria, just like its predecessor air defenses, won’t have functional IFF. The Russian Ministry of Defense’s Major General Igor Konashenkov said: “There were no precedents for transferring Russian IFF systems to other states, including the Syrian Arab Republic.” As a result, supplying the S-300 is dangerous for three reasons: its range, meaning it can lead to war with Israel if it shoots across the border; its lack of IFF, meaning it can’t distinguish between friendly and hostile forces; and the risk to Russian aircraft, meaning it is a threat to Russia’s operations in Syria. It may also be a threat to civilian air traffic around the Damascus airport. If put in the hands of poorly trained operators, the sale of the S-300 to Syria is a reckless measure pushed by the Russian military, who may rue the day they decided to send the S-300 to Syria.

Scientists accuse DARPA of genetically modifying insects for bioweapons to spread agricultural viruses

By Strange Sounds - Oct 7, 2018

In a scathing report issued this week, researchers with the Science Policy Forum have accused the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of creating a technology — ostensibly used to genetically modify crops with insects — but that could be converted into a dangerous and illegal bioweapon to spread agricultural viruses. The current program is being funded by the Pentagon’s darling “research” arm DARPA — who last year was found to be spending millions on “genetic extinction technology” that could wipe out entire species. DARPA’s new project, dubbed “Insect Allies” involves releasing fleets of genetically modified insects onto crops which would “infect” plants with a special virus that would genetically modify the plant on location. If you think this sounds scary, you are not alone. The lead author of the new Science Policy Forum report, Richard Guy Reeves from the Department of Evolutionary Genetics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Plön, says the Insect Allies program is a disturbing example of dualuse research in which DARPA, in addition to helping out farmers, is also working on a potential weapon. Naturally, as is the case with all accusations against DARPA when they get caught working on some sadistic planet killing plot, they are denying the accusations, writing them off as mischaracterizations. The report was published in Science on October 5, and it is nothing short of chilling. According to researchers, DARPA “aims to disperse infectious genetically modified viruses that have been engineered to edit crop chromosomes directly in fields.” As Gizmodo explains, the technology at the heart of this research could herald an entirely new way of genetically modifying crops. Instead of having to wait for a plant to pass its newly-acquired traits onto the next generation, genetic changes would be imposed upon living organisms, a process known as horizontal genetic alteration. Hence the technology’s name — Horizontal Environmental Genetic Alteration Agents, or HEGAAs. The viruses will be delivered using genetically modified insects as a means of overcoming the previous limitations to delivering HEGAAs. According to the report, “the regulatory, biological, economic, and societal implications of dispersing such horizontal environmental genetic alteration agents (HEGAAs) into ecosystems are profound. Further, this program stipulates that the means of delivery of these viral HEGAAs into the environment should be insect-based dispersion.” DARPA plans to release swarms of genetically modified insects like leafhoppers, whiteflies, and aphids, that have been altered using CRISPR, or other gene editing systems. The swarms would be carrying an infectious virus to crops that are already established as a means of genetically modifying them on the spot. If this sounds like science fiction to you, it should. However, it is most assuredly not fiction. As Gizmodo reports: Insect Allies was announced in November 2016, and it currently involves research contracts in excess of $27 million. DARPA is funding four teams (not three, as claimed in the report), namely the Boyce Thompson Institute, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Texas, Austin. The defence agency maintains that “all work is conducted inside closed laboratories, greenhouses, or other secured facilities,” and that the insects will have built-in lifespans to limit their spread. DARPA is hoping to see tests done in greenhouses in as few as two years, with maize being a high-priority crop. Considering DARPA’s history and their Pentagon funding, scientists are expressing justified concern over the development of this technology. The researchers in this report pull no punches when they claim it may be a cover to develop an offensive bioweapon. “It is our opinion that the knowledge to be gained from this program appears very limited in its capacity to enhance U.S. agriculture or respond to national emergencies,” write the authors in the new Policy Forum. Instead, they say, “the program may be widely perceived as an effort to develop biological agents for hostile purposes and their means of delivery, which—if true—would constitute a breach of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC).Using insects as a means of distributing the viruses is a terrible idea, according to the authors of the report, because they cannot be controlled. The scientist claim that HEGGAs would be far more effective if simply sprayed overhead like most other delivery systems for agriculture. Stopping short of calling it a weapon, DARPA actually acknowledged that this technology could be used as a means of national defense. According to the DARPA website: National security can be quickly jeopardized by naturally occurring threats to the crop system, including pathogens, drought, flooding, and frost, but especially by threats introduced by state or non-state actors. Insect Allies seeks to mitigate the impact of these incursions by applying targeted therapies to mature plants with effects that are expressed at relevant timescales—namely, within a single growing season. Are you scared now? You should… Indeed, when the people who are exempted from most all federal regulations begin modifying swarms of insects to infect crops with viruses which would genetically modify them on the spot — and refer to this as national defense — it may be time to start paying attention.

Tipping point breached! Monarch butterfly has a 95% decline since 1980's in North America: Two-thirds of ALL animals and insects extinct in 2 years

Saturday, 3 February 2018

According to researchers from WWF and the Zoological Society of London in just two years’ time, the World will have lost two-thirds of all wild animals and insects. This amazing statistic from The Living Planet Index goes on: The number of wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020, according to a new report, part of a mass extinction that is destroying the natural world upon which humanity depends. The latest species under stress is the wonderful North American monarch butterfly. A new report by The Xerces Society claim the number of monarchs wintering in California has dropped to a five-year low, despite more volunteers counting more sites in search of the orange-and-black insect that is arguably the most admired of North American butterflies, a report said on Friday. The latest tally of 200,000 monarchs in forested groves in California’s central coast has dropped from the 1.2 million counted two decades ago, indicating the number of butterflies found west of the Rocky Mountains, or the so-called western population, continues to sharply decline, the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation said in a report. Thanks to the efforts of many, this year’s WMTC tallied a total of 192,629 monarchs. This is the lowest number counted since 2012, despite volunteers visiting nearly twice as many sites as they did that year. The total represents less than one-sixth of the 1.2 million monarchs recorded in 1997, the first year of the WMTC, and is part of a long-term downward trend in the population of monarchs overwintering in California. A study led by Cheryl Schultz, of Washington State University Vancouver, analyzed WMTC data and comparable historical data and demonstrated a dramatic population decline of over 95% the since the 1980s. This is similar to the decline of over 80% seen in the monarch population that overwinters in central Mexico since the 1990s. Earth has crossed its own tipping point and is creaking under the strain: Two-thirds of animals extinct by 2020! Climate changed forever! World population to hit 8 billion and accelerating Planet has crossed the tipping point Our planet is creaking under the strain By 2020 two thirds of all wild animals who once lived on the world will be dead. The world's primates face an "extinction crisis" with 60% of species now threatened with extinction Unprecedented death of millions of tons of marine life around the world’s oceans and waterways NOAA and NASA claimed 2016 marked three consecutive years of record warmth for the globe with the first eight months of 2016 unprecedented warmth! 10 of the 11 warmest years ever recorded coming in the last 16 year Not climate change but climate "changed" North Pole warmer than the Mediterranean in winter World population soon to hit 8 billion and accelerating Wars and rumours of wars In just two years’ time, the World will have lost two-thirds of all wild animals. This amazing statistic from The Living Planet Index goes on: The number of wild animals living on Earth is set to fall by two-thirds by 2020, according to a new report, part of a mass extinction that is destroying the natural world upon which humanity depends. The analysis, the most comprehensive to date, indicates that animal populations plummeted by 58% between 1970 and 2012, with losses on track to reach 67% by 2020. Researchers from WWF and the Zoological Society of London compiled the report from scientific data and found that the destruction of wild habitats, hunting and pollution were to blame. In another report released by journal Science, Advances are claiming the world's primates face an "extinction crisis" with 60% of species now threatened with extinction, according to research. A global study, involving more than 30 scientists, assessed the conservation status of more than 500 individual species. This also revealed that 75% of species have populations that are declining. Add to this the unprecedented death of millions of tons of marine life around the world’s oceans and waterways all point to a crisis which has crossed the tipping point. Just yesterday NOAA along with NASA claimed 2016 marked three consecutive years of record warmth for the globe with the first eight months of 2016 unprecedented warmth! With 10 of the 11 warmest years ever recorded coming in the last 16 years, it is fair to claim climate change is climate changed it will never recover. The Sun hasn't risen over its horizon for more than two months yet the North Pole was warmer than South of France, Italy, Greece Turkey and Syria this week and not for the first time either this winter! The world is creaking under the stress; crops are failing all over the world due to extreme weather, and with 7.5 billion people we can’t possibly feed everyone, even though the West probably throw’s away enough food to feed the poorest.

Could an artificial intelligence be considered a person under the law?

Science Oct 7, 2018 10:01 AM EDT

Humans aren’t the only people in society – at least according to the law. In the U.S., corporations have been given rights of free speech and religion. Some natural features also have person-like rights. But both of those required changes to the legal system. A new argument has laid a path for artificial intelligence systems to be recognized as people too – without any legislation, court rulings or other revisions to existing law. Legal scholar Shawn Bayer has shown that anyone can confer legal personhood on a computer system, by putting it in control of a limited liability corporation in the U.S. If that maneuver is upheld in courts, artificial intelligence systems would be able to own property, sue, hire lawyers and enjoy freedom of speech and other protections under the law. In my view, human rights and dignity would suffer as a result.  The corporate loophole  Giving AIs rights similar to humans involves a technical lawyerly maneuver. It starts with one person setting up two limited liability companies and turning over control of each company to a separate autonomous or artificially intelligent system. Then the person would add each company as a member of the other LLC. In the last step, the person would withdraw from both LLCs, leaving each LLC – a corporate entity with legal personhood – governed only by the other’s AI system. That process doesn’t require the computer system to have any particular level of intelligence or capability. It could just be a sequence of “if” statements looking, for example, at the stock market and making decisions to buy and sell based on prices falling or rising. It could even be an algorithm that makes decisions randomly, or an emulation of an amoeba.

Reducing human status Granting human rights to a computer would degrade human dignity. For instance, when Saudi Arabia granted citizenship to a robot called Sophia, human women, including feminist scholars, objected, noting that the robot was given more rights than many Saudi women have. In certain places, some people might have fewer rights than nonintelligent software and robots. In countries that limit citizens’ rights to free speech, free religious practice and expression of sexuality, corporations – potentially including AI-run companies – could have more rights. That would be an enormous indignity.  The risk doesn’t end there: If AI systems became more intelligent than people, humans could be relegated to an inferior role – as workers hired and fired by AI corporate overlords – or even challenged for social dominance.  Artificial intelligence systems could be tasked with law enforcement among human populations – acting as judges, jurors, jailers and even executioners. Warrior robots could similarly be assigned to the military and given power to decide on targets and acceptable collateral damage – even in violation of international humanitarian laws. Most legal systems are not set up to punish robots or otherwise hold them accountable for wrongdoing.  What about voting? Granting voting rights to systems that can copy themselves would render humans’ votes meaningless. Even without taking that significant step, though, the possibility of AI-controlled corporations with basic human rights poses serious dangers. No current laws would prevent a malevolent AI from operating a corporation that worked to subjugate or exterminate humanity through legal means and political influence. Computer-controlled companies could turn out to be less responsive to public opinion or protests than human-run firms are. Immortal wealth  Two other aspects of corporations make people even more vulnerable to AI systems with human legal rights: They don’t die, and they can give unlimited amounts of money to political candidates and groups.  Artificial intelligences could earn money by exploiting workers, using algorithms to price goods and manage investments, and find new ways to automate key business processes. Over long periods of time, that could add up to enormous earnings – which would never be split up among descendants. That wealth could easily be converted into political power.  Politicians financially backed by algorithmic entities would be able to take on legislative bodies, impeach presidents and help to get figureheads appointed to the Supreme Court. Those human figureheads could be used to expand corporate rights or even establish new rights specific to artificial intelligence systems – expanding the threats to humanity even more.

Creating National Biometric System for Patient Matching Will Threaten Privacy and Security

Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom Responds to New Pew Study on ‘Patient Matching’—Just Another Name for ‘National Patient ID’

ST. PAUL, Minn.—The Pew Research Center last week released a new public opinion report on “patient matching,” a term which is simply a less-offensive moniker for “national patient ID,” says Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF). Pew led off the study with this dubious claim about developing a national system of patient identification: “Enhanced Patient Matching Is Critical to Achieving Full Promise of Digital Health Records.” However, problems abound with both the idea of pushing a national patient ID strategy to link patient data and the proposed use of a national infrastructure to collect and store the biometrics of Americans, such as their DNA, fingerprints or iris scans. At an event with the study’s authors, Pew claimed “many of the participants agreed that getting organizations to settle on one unified national strategy for records matching is more crucial than agreeing on one technology,” Politico’s “Morning eHealth” newsletter reported. However, CCHF president and co-founder Twila Brase doubts the methodology and questions the extremely small size of the survey group—just 95 respondents in 11 focus groups in five cities—especially for a topic so significant and having so much impact on patient privacy and consent rights. “Why such a large claim from the opinions of such a small group of Americans?” Brase asked. “Studies show Americans want privacy and are concerned they have none. As reported in ‘Big Brother in the Exam Room,’ a Black Book survey of 12,090 consumers in late 2016 found 87 percent unwilling to comprehensively divulge all of their information to their doctors due to privacy concerns and 81 percent concerned that information on chronic conditions is being shared beyond their chosen doctor and payer. Their concerns are valid. Under the HIPAA disclosure rule, their consent is not required for most data-sharing, unless a stronger state law exists. The Black Book survey mimics the concerns found in the 2000 Gallup survey of 1,000 people. Imagine how much greater the intrusion, if every patient medical record from birth to death could be linked through a national identifier. “The evidence for the Pew report is razor-thin and questionable,” Brase continued. “The questions asked and the raw data are not disclosed, and the size of the survey group was minimal. Plus, it’s not clear that the privacy concerns about national IDs and biometrics, or the authority under HIPAA to share data broadly without patient consent, were explained to the 95 individuals who participated in the focus groups. For example, as the report notes, once biometrics are utilized, a door is opened that can never be closed. DNA, iris scans and fingerprints are unique and cannot be changed if a computerized single national infrastructure is hacked and the biometrics are stolen. Did Pew warn the 95 individuals about this possibility? Nothing in the report says they did. Did these 95 people understand that interoperability would involve all their medical records and not just the specific information that a patient wants to get from Dr. A to Dr. B.?” CCHF also pointed to a few key findings in the Pew report: Sweeping claim without raw numbers or definitions of terms: “On the whole, participants expressed support for enhanced interoperability—fueled by better matching—to give patients and clinicians more timely access to data, though they expressed concerns about the prospects of information being stolen, privacy, and the sale of the data.” U.S. law currently prohibits HHS to fund the creation of a unique patient identifier without explicit approval from Congress. This is in place for good reason, Brase says. National patient IDs open the door to government surveillance and outsider controls on access to patient care (i.e. “No card, No care”). National ID systems are subject to error and fraud, such as the Social Security number. The cost to create government-issued numeric health identifiers for all patients would be exorbitant. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services estimated in 2011 that transitioning from Social Security Numbers to a new Medicare identifier could cost more than $800 million. Congress provided $320 million for the effort in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act. Some states, like Minnesota and Nevada, passed state legislation in the 1990s to create their own health identifiers, with little progress being made in the past 20 years. Brase is the author of the new book, “Big Brother in the Exam Room: The Dangerous Truth About Electronic Health Records,” which exposes how government EHRs negatively impact both patients and doctors. Already in its second printing, “Big Brother in the Exam Room,” published this summer by Beaver’s Pond Press and previously ranked at least three times as the No. 1 best-selleron Amazon (in the privacy and surveillance category and the Medical History and Records category), also details how EHRs affect privacy, personalized care, costs, patient safety and more, according to doctors and data from more than 125 studies. “Big Brother in the Exam Room” is available online wherever books are sold and at www.BigBrotherInTheExamRoom.com .

Devout Muslims DELIBERATELY MOWS DOWN POLICE in Car Ramming, FOUR Arrested in UK JIhad

By Pamela Geller - on October 6, 2018

Iqbal Valli, a committee member at the All-Masjid & Madrasah Al-Furqan mosque, said the jihad suspects were regular worshippers.

Armed police lockdown quiet street to arrest suspects after Mercedes mows down officer in ‘DELIBERATE hit-and-run’ causing ‘serious head injuries’

Armed officers surrounded a Leicester home and arrested two men this morning

In video, one man approaches police with arms up before being put in handcuffs

Comes after policeman was mown down in street by white Mercedes at 4.30am

By Connor Boyd and Tracey Kandohla For Mailonline, 6 October 2018

This is the dramatic moment armed police lead a man away in handcuffs following an alleged hit-and-run on an officer this morning.  Masked police swooped in on the quiet street in Leicester and surrounded a house before a man slowly walked towards them with his arms up. He was then arrested and put in the back of a police car.  The suspect was one of up to four people taken into custody after a constable was left with serious head injuries after being ‘deliberately’ mown down at 4.30am. The suspect was taken into custody after a police constable was struck by a white Mercedes at 4.30am Other images from the scene show multiple men being led into police cars. The alleged hit-and-run left the policeman ‘screaming in pain’ in the middle of the street. The incident happened just yards from where two of the three suspects were later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. The officer, who is in his 20s, was left with serious head injuries after being hit by a white Mercedes as he tried to stop it. Mohammed Patel, who saw ‘a commotion’ as he as returning home form a night out at about 4.30am said: ‘I could see someone lying on the ground screaming out in real pain. Up to four people have been arrested following the incident in the early hours of this morning ‘Police told me to go indoors after asking me who lived where. A few hours later they came back, there must have been 20 armed cops, masked and helmeted, and they arrested three of my next door neighbours. ‘I was shocked because they’re a really nice family and not any trouble makers. ‘They came out one by one, first the two young men who were handcuffed but not resisting and then the woman, their sister, and they were whisked away.’ Dozens of armed officers swooped in on the Leicester home this morning to make the arrest Decorator Mr Patel, 38, said: ‘We heard a policeman had been run over as he got out of his car to question a suspect about an attack earlier. He was badly injured. It’s very evil.’ Iqbal Valli, a committee member at the All-Masjid & Madrasah Al-Furqan mosque said the suspects were regular worshippers. He was attending morning prayer as he saw police surrounding a nearby newly built detached home and watched ‘in horror’ as armed cops arrested three of his fellow worshippers. The attack left the policeman in his 20s was left with serious head injuries. Pictured: One of the suspects is escorted away by police The father-of-five said: ‘There was a huge armed police and they blocked off the road as they made arrests.  ‘They had guns pointing at the suspects as they led them from the house and their parents are devastated. No one really knows what’s going on. ‘The family are decent people, they are Muslims, and they worship at our mosque. Everyone here is shocked, it’s a a very peaceful area.’ It is believed the officer was hit as he tried to stop the car in the early hours of this morning. Iqbal Valli, a committee member at the All-Masjid & Madrasah Al-Furqan mosque, said the suspects were regular worshippers  The alleged hit-and-run unfolded after police had at first been called to a street in Leicester amid reports a man had been assaulted. A group of men were seen driving from the scene in Belvoir Street in a Volkswagen Polo. Police said that as officers investigated the assault, they received reports a second car – a white Mercedes believed to have been at the scene – was seen with an occupant reportedly armed nearby. Leicester Police said: ‘At about 4.30am this morning the Mercedes was sighted in Bradbourne Road, Leicester, and during attempts to stop the vehicle an officer was struck as the car left the area.

The UK is practicing cyberattacks that could black out Moscow

By John DetrixheOctober 7, 2018

British defense officials say they have practiced cyber war games that could shut off electricity in Russia’s capital, the Sunday Times (paywall) reports. The measures are part of a wider range of strategies to hit back at an increasingly assertive Russia—accused of interfering with US elections, cyberattacks on Western targets, and poisoning a former spy on UK soil—without resorting to a full-blown nuclear attack. “If they sank our aircraft carrier with a nuclear-tipped torpedo, what is our response? There’s nothing between sinking their submarine and dropping a nuclear weapon on northern Kamchatka,” one senior source told the Sunday Times. “This is why cyber is so important; you can go on the offensive and turn off the lights in Moscow to tell them that they are not doing the right things.” Military planners are looking for options if Russian president Vladimir Putin tests NATO’s resolve by seizing small islands belonging to Estonia, taking control of Libya’s oil reserves, or using ”irregular forces” to attack troops, according to the report. British troops also recently held their biggest military exercise in 10 years, which included six navy ships and more than 5,000 troops in the Omani desert, to prepare for a confrontation with unconventional Russian forces like those used in Crimea. Cyber weapons are seen as a potential deterrent and a way to avoid a direct military confrontation. UK defense chiefs are talking up their cyber prowess after a string of alleged Russian hacker exploits, including revelations last week of a Russian computer attack on the international chemical weapons watchdog. The attempted hack was disrupted by Dutch military intelligence with the help from British officials. Also last week, US authorities charged Russian intelligence officers with seeking to hack the nuclear energy company Westinghouse Electric and anti-doping watchdogs. The announcements suggest world leaders are pushing back against Putin’s increasing aggressive cyber operations, which allegedly includes breaking into the control rooms of vital US electric grids (paywall). Russia, after all, has hammered smaller nations with its cyber weapons in the past. The country disabled computer systems for the Estonia’s parliament, broadcasters, and banks in 2007, according to the Times, and regularly disrupts Ukrainian banking and electrical systems. The US is expected to announce that it will use its cyber capabilities on behalf of NATO if asked, Reuters reported last week. The US announcement is aimed squarely at Russia, according to a senior defense official, and is part of a British-led effort to stiffen NATO’s cyber capacity. The 29-nation alliance has recognized cyber as a domain of warfare since 2014, but the precise implications haven’t been formalized. American intelligence shows that Russian hackers broke into the Democratic National Committee and leaked information in the lead-up to the US presidential election. The White House recently warned foreign entities that it would use more offensive measures as part of its revised cyber security strategy. US intelligence reportedly expects a series of hacker attacks before congressional elections next month.

Hillary Clinton is still finding ways to denigrate democracy

By Michael Goodwin October 6, 2018 | 9:03pm

And so our fiery national nightmare is over. For now. But only a Pollyanna would think peace is about to break out across the bloody political and cultural battlefields. We are a long way from fixing what was shattered and retrieving what has been lost. There were many causes and events on the long road that brought us to this low place, but a telling moment took place almost exactly two years ago. It was the final debate of the presidential campaign, held on Oct. 19, 2016. Here is how the New York Times began its slanted coverage: “In a remarkable statement that seemed to cast doubt on American democracy, Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he might not accept the results of next month’s election if he felt it was rigged against him — a stand that Hillary Clinton blasted as ‘horrifying.’ ” After noting that no modern president refused to accept election results, the paper quoted Clinton attacking Trump. “Let’s be clear about what he is saying and what that means,” she said. “He is denigrating — he is talking down our democracy. And I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that position.” She added, “That is not the way our democracy works.” Fast forward to now, and it is the height of irony — and hypocrisy — that Clinton and her supporters, including the Times, still refuse to accept the election’s outcome. It started with her flimsy claims of Russian collusion and continues uninterrupted, with the character assassination campaign against Brett Kavanaugh the latest example. Thank God, the assassins were unsuccessful in preventing a superbly qualified jurist and widely respected man from joining the Supreme Court. But . Willing to destroy any part of government they cannot corrupt witthey did lasting damage to Kavanaugh’s reputation, his family, the court, the Senate and the entire country h partisanship, members of the self-declared resistance are tearing America apart because the election didn’t go their way. They have unleashed a whirlwind of fanatical hate, with violence now routinely threatened and sometimes carried out. There are no random events. It is a straight line from the unprecedented plot by President Barack Obama’s administration to infiltrate and wiretap the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016 to the scurrilous accusations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. The probe by special counsel Robert Mueller has turned up nothing of significance against the president, yet it plods onward, searching for anything that would justify its existence. In that context, it is beyond mildly interesting that a former FBI agent reportedly tried to pressure a friend of Christine Blasey Ford into changing her sworn statement to the Senate so it would support Ford’s charges against Kavanaugh. And one of Ford’s lawyers happens to be the lawyer for the fired former deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe. Throw in the crooked James Comey’s drum-beating against Kavanaugh and the return of Obama to the campaign trail, and it’s clear the seamy efforts of the former administration are still going strong. As the Kavanaugh catastrophe demonstrates, our nation is paying a heavy price for the unpatriotic attempts to abuse government power to try to pick a president, then undo the election. In a dangerous world where America has real enemies, efforts to undermine Trump’s legitimacy often align with the interests of foreign powers. John Kerry’s traitorous advice to Iran to wait for the next president are a prime example. To be clear, what we just witnessed, and what we have seen for two years, is not a case of mere political differences, which the Founders recognized as inevitable and even desirable. Instead, we face something more akin to the combustible climate that historian Christopher Clark described as the origins of World War I. In his book, “The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914,” Clark illustrates how none of the great powers wanted war, but all felt free to escalate the buildup in the certainty that the other side would back down. Something similar is happening here, and our nation could be sleepwalking into a second civil war. Even though justice and fairness prevailed this time, the stained confirmation process must serve as a wake-up alarm. It is a recognition of the danger we face that, amid the threats from Democrats to impeach Kavanaugh, we also hear calls for unity and healing. I’m all for them — as long as they’re not a fig leaf wrapped around gross wrongdoing. For one thing, the leak of the confidential letter Ford wrote to Sen. Dianne Feinstein must be treated as a crime. As several senators noted, the leak falsely weaponized a charge about a 36-year-old event, without having any corroborating evidence. Ford wanted to remain private, but the leaker wanted to create a public spectacle that pitted her and Kavanaugh against each other like two caged beasts. The leaker succeeded and provoked other accusers to make charges without evidence, leading to a cascade of smoke but no fire. Among the casualties was the presumption of innocence, a bedrock of our legal system and Western civilization itself. Ford and Kavanaugh both say their families received death threats. For another thing, the role of Ford’s lawyers must be investigated. One was hired at the recommendation of Feinstein’s office, and another represents McCabe — suggesting this was a political operation from the start. Moreover, the failure of those lawyers to turn over key documents to the Senate reeks of bad faith and perhaps something far more sinister. Less surprising was that the fiasco revealed how the liberal media keep behaving like battering rams against Trump. The wild stories about Kavanaugh in high school and college, coming from NBC, The New Yorker and others aimed to paint him as too toxic for confirmation. Shamefully, Ivy League law schools piled on.  Their failure to stop him is cause for relief, but nothing more. The media and academia embarrassed themselves again, but show no signs of ending their blatant bias. The Times, of course, is the leader of the wolf pack, and it’s worth revisiting the end of its 2016 debate story. After saying Trump “sputtered” in one exchange, it wrote that the evening was “a last-ditch attempt by a fading candidate, Mr. Trump, to save himself.” Clinton, on the other hand, was said to be “reaching for not just a win but a mandate,” and the article concluded with obvious support for her certain victory. “I would like to say to everyone watching tonight that I’m reaching out to all Americans, Democrats, Republicans and independents,” she said, “because we need everybody to help make our country what it should be.” Two years later, she bears a huge responsibility for the disaster before us. If she really wants to help, Clinton should publicly admit that Trump won the election fair and square.

New Report Says Trump Wants Chinese Parts Out Of American Weapons

by Tyler Durden Sun, 10/07/2018 - 22:15

Top defense officials said last week that the Pentagon intends to invest in domestic manufacturing to reduce it over-reliance on Chinese and other foreign-made parts in American weapons. The Pentagon's reliance on China is a major topic discussed in a new report about the overall status of the defense industrial base that President Trump is scheduled to release. Some other areas include "accelerating workforce development efforts to grow domestic science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and critical trade skills," said Defense One. "This assessment recognizes the global nature of our supply chain and really addresses the need for strengthening alliances and partnerships so that we can jointly address industrial base risk," Ellon Lord, undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment, said Thursday evening during a press briefing at the Pentagon. Pentagon officials are expected to ask Congress for additional funding for mitigating efforts in its fiscal 2020 budget request to Congress early next year. "We already have existing industrial-base mitigation tools," said Eric Chewning, the deputy assistant defense secretary for industrial policy, said during the briefing. "There's already money available to address some of these challenges." According to Defense One, the new report says China is the only manufacturer of various chemicals needed in missiles and bombs, Europe and Japan are the only supplies of certain carbon fibers used in missiles, satellites, and rockets; Germany is the sole supplier of high-tech vacuum tubes for night vision goggles. China is a major focal point in the report, mentioned more than 200 times, it seems US government agencies are rushing to halt weapon parts from the country. Some of the report's findings and recommendations on reworking supply chains are considered classified because they describe vulnerabilities in US supply chains. "I wouldn't think of this just as an additional ask for money," Chewning said. "We also need to be spending what we do more wisely. This isn't just an investment fix. There's legislative fixes, there's policy fixes, there's regulatory fixes. We need to be able to hit all of those levers." It is not that the Pentagon has not been investing in domestic manufacturing, he said. "Sometimes we’re just not spending money in the right way." Lord said the US defense industry supports roughly 2.4 million jobs and accounts for $865 billion "in annual industry output" and $143 billion in exports. She said the report's timing "is really excellent because it provides a site picture on industrial-base issues just as receive the [2019] budget that really allows us to address many of those issues." Hawk, Carlisle, president and CEO of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), said the report indicates a "sobering picture" of the defense industrial base. NDIA was one of the trade groups that helped the Trump administration develop the report. "Reliance on single producers within the supply chain, dependence on unstable or unfriendly foreign suppliers for critical components, and misplaced presumption of continued preeminence of American military superiority are examples of findings that should be immediately addressed," Carlisle said in a statement. The Aerospace Industries Association, another trade group that participated in the review, said: "Ultimately, while it is essential that the Administration focus on addressing the specific challenges facing the industrial base, none of the advancements in acquisition policy, key capabilities or workforce will matter without adequate DOD budgets." There are two bottlenecks that arise from the Pentagon wanting to rework their global supply chain network: first, it is costly, and second, it could lead to global trade disruptions. Government officials have stated that DOD budgets would have to increase to rework supply chains to produce more domestic parts for weapons. The need for more defense spending comes as the Trump administration has set a record for military expenditures in 2018. Defense spending plus tax cuts have pushed the US budget deficit over the $1 trillion mark for next year. Already, the net supply of Treasury securities have doubled this year, to over $900 billion, and could rise to nearly $1.2 trillion in 2019. Treasury auctions are now having difficulty digesting the new supply, as the 10-year yield has hit a seven-year high. More military spending to rework supply chains could add further Treasury supply and continue pushing yields higher. Record military spending with out of control deficit spending via the Trump administration could strangle the real economy with borrowing costs on the rise. Reworking the Pentagon's supply chains also come at a time when global openness has peaked, and the old economic order from a post World War II recovery to hyper-globalization has ended. As a result, supply chain disruptions tend to trigger a slowdown in global growth momentum. The Pentagon is not alone in the attempt of reworking their supply chains. Many multinationals are digesting President Trump's trade war that is causing much uncertainty and rewriting trade routes from country to country, due to tariffs. The only reason the Pentagon would want to rewrite their supply chains and become less reliant on the rest of the world is that they see a war on the horizon. War tends to disrupt global trade, the US government is now preparing for conflict by securing its supply chains.

This Is A History Lesson Every American Should Know: The Evolution of Armed America And How The 2nd Amendment Helps Protect The 'American Dream'

ANP thanks Jay Chambers of the Minute Man Review for this story. There’s no secret that the U.S. has always had an interest (so as not to say “obsession”) with guns. When we say “guns,” we imagine patriots firing their muskets at the Redcoats, hunters going after buffalos, cowboys doing their tricks, and Special Forces tackling the extremists. Yes, guns are pretty much everywhere. This is why America is different from your average country. Most of the time, particularly in the western countries, gun ownership is strictly limited – and unless you are part of the police force, you are generally not allowed to have a gun. For America, however, this has become pretty much a culture. Still, there’s a reason why guns have been so deeply embedded in the history of America. The roots go back to the middle of the 1700s – and since then, guns have become more and more of a necessity. The Second Amendment Whenever you talk about guns in America, you automatically go back to the second amendment – mainly because that’s when the wheels started to turn. Known as the “Right to Bear Arms” act, this law gave people the right to carry weapons – or more precisely, their rights would not be infringed. The law was, in the beginning, fairly ambiguous – as the citizens of the U.S. weren’t entirely certain what the law was referring to. Did they mean a particular individual, regarding their past – or society in general? Because if it was the latter, this would mean that not everyone might gain the right to bear arms. At first, it was deduced that mostly the militia had the right to bear arms – to protect the society. The police force was the individual’s “gun,” which protected them from dangers that might befall them within the society. In the end, the Second Amendment’s focus shifted, most of it going towards the individual. The state militia was no longer a dire need – so, many people started getting guns for their own benefit. There were many attempts to curb this trend to own guns – but these bans were overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court on the claim that it violated the terms of the Second Amendment. Americans were now free to express their liberty by owning a gun. Expansion to the West During America’s development, people started migrating to the west in search of new opportunities. However, mainly because of television and the fact that the west was a so-called “frontier land,” the place was considered to be quite dangerous. Only the brave adventured to this land that was mediatized for the fact that it was gun-clad. As a result, people who moved there would also have handguns available to protect themselves. Needless to say, not all of them were licensed guns – and most of them were owned without an actual authorization. However, in the eyes of the citizens, it was a necessity – and if they wanted a better life, they had to be able to protect themselves from the imminent dangers brought by “cowboys and Indians.” However, this proved to be mainly a myth – but a myth that ended up bringing more guns into the West. Today, it is believed that the westward expansion doesn’t exist. Still, one cannot argue that it marked a key point in the American identity – and guns are closely tied to that. One could say that guns were the actual protectors of the “American dream.” The Industrialization of Guns From early times, guns played a very important role in the cultural and political history of America. At the same time, they had a great impact on the country’s economy. Most of the gun industrialization in the U.S. began around 1840 with Samuel Colt – the person who contributed by creating the first gun with interchangeable parts. The aim was to make the same parts for every gun so that, in the event of damage, the gun can be repaired easily and without much money. Nowadays, interchangeable parts are taken for granted, but during Colt’s time, this was not the case. Since parts were unique and made on an individual level, it was far more difficult to get your hands on a gun. It was expensive and time-consuming – and many people just gave up on the idea. This is why the gun industry was not so flourishing back then – but it changed with time. Now, you have spares for anything. You have removable parts for the classic options, and you can easily make an order for a custom-made model. Considering that the United States holds over 40% of the world’s guns, the gun industry has become a major part of the economy. Currently, the firearm industry is worth more than $30 billion – which is almost the same as Nigeria’s national budget. Plus, guns have become an important aspect of many jobs – bringing additional profit to the economy. No matter if it’s for police forces, academies, or simply hunting sites, the industry has become so massive that it’s actually making America flourish. Whereas guns were a luxury that not many people could afford, now it is considered a commodity that almost everyone can have. All you have to do is be at least 21 (or even younger, depending on the state). They are bought for a variety of reasons, which go from self-defense to recreation (for those who are in the hobby of hunting). The Bottom Line Guns have played an important part in the evolution of America – and the industry is still developing. We can’t say exactly what the future holds for the United States – but considering these growing numbers, we suppose the gun industry will only become more powerful. Guns weren’t always accepted by the authorities – and the higher-ups would always be reluctant to give guns to individuals. However, considering that America is a country flourishing in individual liberty, guns aren’t an exception to that. Firearms also helped win wars and allowed America to grow economically. They have been present in the making of America at every point – therefore becoming a cultural item that one could not actually ignore. Jay Chambers is a pro free speech business owner and constitutionalist based in Austin, Texas. Having lived through several natural disasters and more than a few man-made ones (2008 anyone?), he believes that resilience and self-sufficiency are essential in this increasingly unpredictable world. He believes in a government by the people, for the people, and shares his thoughts over at Minute Man Review. The opinions expressed in this story are those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of ANP.

Will It Turn Into A 'Red October'? US Admiral Warns Of New Russian Submarines While NATO Launches Largest Drills Since Cold War On Russia's Front Door Step

Remember! Hillary Clinton gave Russia the technology they used to build their hypersonic ICBM's!

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The title of the October 4th story over at Strategic Culture hints that madness is still in the air: "US Openly Threatens Russia with War: Goodbye Diplomacy, Hello Stone Age". As Steve Quayle mentioned in an SQ note while he linked to the story on his website: "To quote Putin, if history has taught him anything, he who strikes first usually wins - perhaps US NATO Ambassador should read history! It's a 2-way street". As the Strategic Culture story reported, the US believes that Russia is in violation of the INF nuclear treaty with the building of a new missile and our Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison actually said the following of Russia's new missile potentially becoming operational: “At that point, we would be looking at the capability to take out a (Russian) missile that could hit any of our countries. Counter measures (by the United States) would be to take out the missiles that are in development by Russia in violation of the treaty." She added. "They are on notice." As the Strategic Culture story pointed out, "this is nothing other than a direct warning of a preemptive strike." And while Hutchison just issued a 'clarification' of her remarks as the Washington Examiner reports in this new story, saying "I was not talking about preemptively striking Russia", even CNN recently admitted in this story (saved at Archive) that President Trump is on a huge winning streak with the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh just the latest feather in his cap. Yet we all know, a war between the US and Russia would instantly bring that streak to a profound and screeching halt, along with "peace is the prize" Does the US's NATO Ambassador Hutchison not keep up with the latest news? As Dr Peter Vincent Pry warned in a story republished on ANP back on March 14th, 'mutually assured destruction' is no longer 'mutual'! As Dr. Pry reported on March 8th, thanks to 8 years of the policies of Barack Obama and his New START treaty, Russia was able to achieve the 'holy grail' of nuclear superiority, 'escalation dominance'. Warning in his March 14th story that the US is now 'unilaterally vulnerable to nuclear destruction' should war break out with Russia due to their new 'doomsday weapons' that we have no way to stop, for those who think that Dr. Pry's warning might not be accurate, we remind you that Republican Senator James Inhofe from Oklahoma said of Russia's new hypersonic missiles also back in March: "Right now, we're helpless" to stop them. And if Inhofe's warnings didn't ring loudly or true enough to you, US General John Hyten, the Commander of the US Strategic Command stated back in March to the US Senate Armed Services Committee: “We don't have any defense that could deny the employment of such a weapon against us, so our response would be our deterrent force, which would be the triad and the nuclear capabilities that we have to respond to such a threat." And while Kay Bailey Hutchison was busy worrying about Russia developing a weapon, we remind you that it was none other than Hillary Clinton who gave Russia the technology they used to build their hypersonic intercontinental nuclear missiles. Just the latest time that a move made by Hillary Clinton has put America in danger, isn't giving aid and comfort to our enemies still considered treason? The Gateway Pundit reported back in March: On Wednesday Russian leader Vladimir Putin threatened the West with unstoppable intercontinental nuclear missiles. Putin announced that Russia had developed an intercontinental nuclear missile that can’t be stopped or shot down by any country’s defence system. The Russian leader said the rocket travels 20 times the speed of sound and has unlimited range. Now we know where Putin gained the technology to build the missiles. –Hillary Clinton. "Hillary Clinton gave the Russians the technology to destroy American cities. And she gets cheered at restaurants all over New York City." A shocking set of emails that the Examiner reported on shows the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, Russian oligarch Vekselberg, and Skolkovo, “Russia’s Silicon Valley,” the Putin project to transfer Western technology to Russia that was championed and driven by Mrs. Clinton — and, what do you know, 17 out of 28 tech companies that hitched up with Skolkovo also contributed to the Clinton Foundation? What a coincidence. Meanwhile, Barack Obama’s support for Russian WTO membership made the whole global flow so much easier. With apparently somebody within the Trump administration still insanely pushing President Trump towards war with a nation that could completely annihilate us, we'll repeat our warning from this September 12th ANP story: "Watch Out President Trump! The Globalists Are Trying To Get You To Make The Same Mistakes Bush And Obama Made! And Nothing Less Than 'Judgement Day' May Await The Wrong Decision". And as Dr. Pry reported back on September 27th on ANP, Russia is ready for war against the US with their recent Vostok 2018 joint exercises with China simulating two nuclear strikes upon America. And while any nuclear war would be absolutely brutal for all nations involved, and the entire planet, and it would certainly mean the end of life as we know it here in America for our entire population, Russia's invincible new doomsday nuclear weapons, including POSEIDON and SATAN 2 hypersonic nuclear missiles, were the 'game changers'. Thanks Hillary. As Dr. Pry reported in this June 20th story on ANP, POSEIDON, named after the Greek God of Oceans, Earthquakes and Tsunamis is an artificially intelligent robot submarine that could deliver a 100 megaton nuclear bomb, "the largest nuclear weapon ever deployed by any nation. POSEIDON would explode underwater to radioactively contaminate and inundate with tsunamis U.S. coastal cities and seaboard, where are concentrated much of America’s military-industrial strength and population." And as Paul Craig Roberts, Ronald Reagan's assistant Secretary to the Treasury, has written of Russia's Satan 2 nuclear missiles with enough explosive force to allegedly destroy an area the size of France or Texas: “The atomic bombs that Washington dropped on these helpless civilian centres while the Japanese government was trying to surrender were mere popguns compared to today’s thermo-nuclear weapons." “One Russian SS-18 wipes out three-quarters of New York state for thousands of years." “Five or six of these ‘Satans’ as they are known by the US military, and the East Coast of the United States disappears.” So who exactly within President Trump's administration or within the US government is still pushing for war with Russia, a war that would change everything instantly for all Americans with Russian military leaders promising long ago that any war between the US and Russia would surely come home to US soil? As we'd reported on ANP back on June 16th, nobody should put it past the globalists within the Democratic party to push us into a war with Russia, possibly a war started via false flag as many wars begin. And as even President Trump pointed out in the July 19th tweet seen above, the fake news media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even if that confrontation leads to war! As we pointed out in our July 20th story, "those screaming treason about peace with Russia should think about the alternative: War with Russia could lead to the deaths of every single one of them". Yet with US Admiral James Foggo recently warning about Russia heavily investing in their submarine fleet leading to a pushed and co-ordinated mainstream media narrative that Russian subs are a danger to European and American cities and hence, Kay Bailey Hutchison's recent announcement that America may need to take pre-emptive military action against them, we can't help but think of the classic 1990 movie starring Sean Connery based upon the 1984 novel by Tom Clancy, "The Hunt For Red October". So with October now fully here and talk of war once again in the air, just as it was back in October of 2017 and October of 2016 prior to the election, we pray that President Trump retains his sanity while Democrats all around him are losing their's, especially coming fresh off the disclosure that China was able to infiltrate computer systems of the US military and the Pentagon in a massive and highly damaging hack. As the Drive's War Zone reported of that hack, we may not find out fully how damaging it was for many years with it being "an intelligence operation of historic proportions that would have far-reaching and long-lasting ramifications". With China having participated with Russia in Vostok 2018, clearly sending a message to NATO and the US military that a war against one will be a war against both, should China still have access to any of that information or access to any of those compromised computers, war against China/Russia could turn into even more of an unimaginable catastrophe. As we hear in the first video below, the Russian military firing missiles from a submarine over a 1000 miles away has surely sent another message to the Pentagon and the US Navy while in the 2nd video below our videographer talks with us about NATO launching the biggest drills since the Cold War, right on Russia's doorstep. And while we're happy that NATO's US Ambassador Hutchison issued a clarification of her earlier remarks, 1 Thessalonians 5:3 reminds us: "When people are saying, 'Everything is peaceful and secure', then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman's labor pains begin. And there will be no escape."

The Democratic Ten Commandments

By Dee Chadwell October 7, 2018

The Kavanaugh-Ford hearing was excruciating to watch but nevertheless instructive. The entire nation came face to face with the neon glare of the nastiness that is now the Democratic Party. Decent Democrats still exist, but either they fail to pay attention and, therefore, function on tradition only or their education has so failed them that they have no idea that the party has gone off the deep end. They don't know there is a deep end. The 21st-century Democrat is not a new species; he is just a new rendition of the ancient pagan mindset. These new Democrats have more raw power than ancient pagans ever had. They have all the advantages of modern technology; they have phenomenal wealth behind them; they have the leisure to work themselves into twisty fits over any instance of reality that dirties their rosy-pink world. America has always stood on a sturdy foundation of hard work, honesty, self-reliance, and a reverence for the individual as a creation of God Almighty. American jurisprudence was founded on ancient Hebrew law and on Anglo-Saxon concepts of government. Democratic ideas, as well, come up out of antique concepts, but theirs are the opposite of everything America has ever tried to be. America built its laws on the basis of the Ten Commandments. Those commandments are good guides for any society. Any civilization made up of people who largely govern themselves along those lines will be a free, peaceful, and prosperous nation. History demonstrates that. But Democratic policies are at odds with the entirety of these guidelines; they have developed their own Decalogue. These they adhere to with a vengeance:

Thou shalt have no other gods but human power. Winning elections is the Democrat raison d'être because power is their god; the party is their church; and its manifestation is large, centralized government. The party may demand that Democrats lie, cheat, steal, destroy property, shoot baseball-players, or kill babies, but all those activities are for the greater good: power.

Thou shalt worship under the direction of these priests: Darwin, Alinsky, Spock, Marx, Dewey, and Sanger – to say nothing of Baal. Child sacrifice is their sacrament. All ideas counter to the thinking of these apostles must be mocked, blocked, and twisted.

Thou shalt bow down to nothing wholesome or productive. Kindness, genuine caring, duty, and honor are attributes to fake in order to win elections – see the First Commandment – but are never indulged with sincerity. These values can clog with guilt many of the actions necessary for the required political fight to the death.

Thou shalt demonstrate no respect for the universe as God's creation. Good Democrats must see the Earth as fragile, purposeless, and a god itself. Democrats may show up for church on Sunday, but they are not to take any of it seriously and should choose a church that preaches Marx rather than Paul.

Thou shalt destroy all vestiges of family. Democrats believe in taxing citizens so intensely that both parents have to earn a wage. Their public school curricula train children to revere government rather than parents. Democrats champion sexual deviance and prepare children to indulge their sexuality from a young age. They champion abortion at all stages of fetal development and deny the differences between the sexes to produce maximum societal confusion. When the family fails, then government can take over. One can see the resemblance to the ancient phallic cults.

Thou shalt attack, provoke, ridicule, and kill whoever gets in your way. Even when they don't physically kill their political opponents, they kill their livelihoods, their reputations, their families. This commandment gives modern Democrats an excuse to run conservatives out of restaurants, out of theaters, out of their homes. Democrats can attack with impunity Republicans' electronic privacy – Dems can spy, tap, intercept emails, whatever is necessary. This commandment goes so far as to block any attempt their opponents can make to defend themselves – take their guns, take their knives, keep them vulnerable. Remember – winning is everything because winning brings power.

Thou shalt have any kind of sex with whomever, whenever, and wherever. Refer back to the fifth commandment. Societal chaos and desperation open the door to government control – i.e., power.

Thou shalt legalize theft by authorizing the government to steal. Big government requires big money to bribe voters, to keep them dependent, to be able to import new voters. Under this command, law enforcement must be hamstrung to such an extent that property crimes can't be enforced. All ideas of private property must be squelched and socialism championed.

Thou shalt bear false witness against thine enemies. They make up elaborate stories of sexual deviance and financial malfeasance, of drunken orgies and high school shenanigans. Though they condone such behavior among themselves, they feign horror and outrage at the supposed missteps of their opposition. They gum up the operations of government with said allegations and erase all remembrance of innocence until proven guilt. Winning, remember, is everything.

Thou shalt envy, covet, and indulge all jealous attitudes, hating anyone who has accumulated more wealth, more power, or more fame than you have. This is the engine the runs the whole thing. Without envy, there is no discontent. Where there is no discontent, there is little need of government. Where there is little need of government, there is no accumulation of power. If there is no accumulation of power, there is none for the party to grab and no wealth for the party to pocket. What we saw the Democrats do before, during, and after the Kavanaugh inquiry had to have sobered up a lot of honest, honorable Americans because what we saw on display was grotesque. Kavanaugh was damned if he did and damned if he didn't before he even walked into that chamber. Without one word of testimony Democrats were spouting their "I believe her," decrees as if they were holy proclamations. But most Americans are good people – generous and forgiving, honest and hardworking, earnest and dutiful. What we saw in the behavior of the Democrats, both on the committee and around the edges, was the opposite of everything we have been proud of as a nation. The Democratic adherence to these leftist directives, these ancient pagan mandates, proved to be too ugly to countenance. No doubt, decent Democrats all over the nation looked in that national mirror and were as horrified as the rest of us were. The voting booth is the only way we have to wash that venomous taste from our mouths.

Things Work Until They Don't

by Tyler Durden

Thu, 04/26/2018 - 19:45 Authored by Tom Chatham via Project Chesapeake,

As the world begins its next adventure in financial chaos and rolls over to expose its soft underbelly of lies and deceit that have been perpetrated on the public, those that see the truth have been warning the people once again. You can give people the truth but you cannot make them believe it. That is for them to come to grips with. See Also: Everything We Know About The Star Wars Live Action TV Series Trade wars are usually bad for all parties in the end but between the beginning and the end there can be some surprising developments. Human actions and delusions on the part of the public can produce strange results at times. All of our systems are based on trust. When that trust is lost, everything will come crashing down. Until then, things will go on. If trade tariffs with China have the short term effect of creating American jobs, that could have a wealth effect by creating more disposable income in American pockets. That in turn can have a positive effect on the stock market and consumer confidence. Also, commodities are set to soar in price soon and this could carry the stock market up with it for a while. Richard Russell once said he believed we would have a third leg in the current bull market before the bears take charge. He was right in the past and could be right again, only time will tell. This situation can not last long due to the enormous mal-investment built up in the system over many decades. A house of cards will eventually fall and the taller the house the longer and harder the fall will be. One thing that could destroy the temporary high could be the destruction of the financial system due to loss of the reserve currency status and the replacement of the petrodollar system. If and when that happens things will not be looking good for America for a very long time. China is taking actions that could result in just that type of outcome. Their new silk road initiative and oil trading system utilizing Yuan to gold will eventually have serious consequences for Americas standard of living. Total debts and derivatives in the world amount to 30-50 times of world GDP. The bulk of this is derivatives and when they fail they will become worthless. The 250 trillion or so in global debt will default when asset prices implode and interest rates explode. When the debt bubble explodes stocks could decline by as much as 95%. Interest rates could exceed the 20% rates we saw in the 1970’s. In the last 100 years the value of major currencies have declined by 97-99 % relative to purchasing power in gold. The last 1-3% will follow very soon. When the financial system collapses due to losses from derivatives and stocks it will erase all of the savings, and retirement funds people were expecting to get at some future date. This will instantly impoverish the bulk of the population. As the system collapses the banks will likely try to re-inflate assets by massive money printing which will only cause hyperinflation at some point. As hyperinflation kicks in the price of many assets like stocks, bonds, investment properties and art will likely collapse in real terms. Items like gold, silver and productive farmland will likely fare better. Eventually deflation will carry all asset prices down as the world falls into a global depression, possibly for decades. All of these things will likely result in social unrest and wars as people become hungry and angry at a system they took for granted for so many years. The trust will be broken and people will look for something else to believe in. One thing is for certain. People today believe anything but reality and that will catch up to them all very soon in a very painful way. Things work until they don’t. Our economy has been rolling along for decades on the stored wealth of previous generations but that is about to run out of steam very soon. When it does it will be a shock to all but a few. You can ignore reality but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

Florida braces for ANOTHER hurricane: Tropical Storm Michael is heading to the Gulf Coast amid fears it will strengthen to a 'life-threatening' Category 2 storm with winds up to 100mph

Tropical Storm Michael predicted to become a Category 2 hurricane by midweek

Weather experts warn it could hit Florida Panhandle with winds up to 100mph

Florida Gov Rick Scott issued an order for a state of emergency for 26 counties

Gov Scott said the storm 'will be life-threatening and extremely dangerous'

By Valerie Edwards For Dailymail.com and Associated Press Published: 09:56 EDT, 7 October 2018 | Updated: 21:55 EDT, 7 October 2018

The Sunshine State is bracing for another hurricane as Tropical Storm Michael prepares to slam the Gulf Coast this week. On Sunday, Florida Gov Rick Scott warned that the storm headed for the Florida Panhandle could become a Category 2 hurricane with winds up to 100mph by the time it makes landfall Tuesday night. Scott issued an order for a state of emergency for 26 counties in the Florida Panhandle and the Big Bend area. The declaration will free up resources for storm preparation. 'This storm will be life-threatening and extremely dangerous,' Scott said after receiving a briefing at the State Emergency Operations Center. The governor warned that storm surge could affect areas of Florida not in the storm's direct path. 'If this storm hit Panama City, Tampa could still have storm surge,' said Scott, referring to two Florida cities about 375 miles apart by highway. 'Every family must be prepared.' Scott also activated 500 members of the Florida National Guard ahead of the storm. The US National Hurricane Center on Sunday upgraded Michael from a tropical depression to a named tropical storm, saying Michael had winds of up to 50mph. The storm could strengthen into a hurricane by Monday night or Tuesday as its center moves over the Yucatan Channel, crosses the Gulf of Mexico and nears the Florida Panhandle coast sometime Wednesday. Forecasters advised residents along the northeastern and central US Gulf Coast to monitor the storm's progress. The north Florida city of Tallahassee on Sunday opened two locations where residents could get sandbags in case of flooding. 'While the impacts are still uncertain, our area could experience increased wind activity and heavy rainfall, which could cause localized flooding and downed trees,' Tallahassee officials said in a statement. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is the Democratic nominee for governor, had planned to campaign in South Florida Monday and Tuesday, but he said he would return to Tallahassee to help with storm preparations. The city of Pensacola tweeted to residents: 'Be sure you have your emergency plan in place.' The storm was located about 130 miles southeast of Cozumel, Mexico, by 5pm Sunday afternoon. RELATED ARTICL It has been moving to the north-northeast at about 3mph. The storm is also expected to cause flooding to expand across the Carolinas later this week. The Carolinas were devastated last month when Hurricane Florence left parts of the states completely flooded. Millions were forced to evacuate and hundreds more lost their homes to flooding. North Carolina is thought to have suffered most, with $22billion in losses, followed by South Carolina with $5.5billion and about $1billion in Virginia. According to AccuWeather, Michael can deliver around 4-8 inches of rain from the Florida Panhandle into parts of the Carolinas later this week. Tropical storm winds extended out 205 miles, primarily east of the storm's center. A tropical storm warning was in effect for the Cuban provinces of Pinar del Rio and the Isle of Youth as well as the coast of Mexico from Tulum to Cabo Catoche. A warning indicates tropical storm conditions are expected, in this case, within 24 hours. The hurricane center warned that the storm could produce a foot of rain in western Cuba, potentially triggering flash floods and mudslides in mountainous areas. An Air Force hurricane hunter airplane was sent into the storm to investigate, the hurricane center said. Hundreds of families were evacuated to shelters in Honduras as heavy rains from Michael drenched the Central American country on its way to Florida. The Permanent Commission of Contingencies said Sunday that at least 260 homes have been damaged, mostly in southern Honduras, and that more than 6,000 people have been impacted by the rains. School was canceled nationwide Monday. Images on social media showed families wading through thigh-high water, rivers rushing onto streets and roads to communities cut off by mudslides. Local media reported several deaths. Homes in Honduras that are built close to waterways or wedged precariously on hillsides are vulnerable to being washed away by rain.

Michael is the 13th named storm of the 2018 hurricane season, according to hurricane center spokesman Dennis Feltgen.

Six cases of rare polio-like neurologic illness ‘with no cure’ confirmed in Minnesota

Published time: 7 Oct, 2018 23:39 Edited time: 8 Oct, 2018 06:15

Minnesota has reported an outbreak of a rare condition of the nervous system that has affected six children across the state. No single cure exists for acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), which can cause death in its most severe cases. While the rare condition, which results in acute muscle weakness and the loss of muscle tone in the arms or legs, typically strikes one patient in the Midwestern US state annually, six children under the age of ten were hospitalized with it in Minnesota, starting from mid-September, the Department of Health (MDH) reported. Cases of AFM were confirmed in the Twin Cities, central Minnesota and northeastern Minnesota. “MDH disease investigators are working aggressively with health care providers to gather information about the cases,” state health officials said in a statement. “The department is also in contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to share information.” The acute cases of the sickness, also known as Enterovirus 68 (EV68), could lead to a dysfunction of the nerves controlling the head and neck, with noted facial weakness, drooping of the eyes and difficulty swallowing all potentially developing in patients. AFM’s most severe cases could lead to respiratory failure and eventually death, if the muscles responsible for breathing become too weak to carry out their functions. Parents noticing any of the AFM symptoms in their children are urged to contact their doctors immediately. As far as prevention goes, people are being advised to limit exposure to germs, to avoid mosquitos and to update vaccinations, especially the one against polio. The United States witnessed an outbreak in the neurologic illness back in the summer of 2014. Minnesota saw three EV68 cases that year, with 120 patients diagnosed with the ailment in 34 states. In the last four years, 362 cases of AFM were reported in the US. Despite conducting “extensive lab testing on specimens from patients” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) pointed out that they still have no clue “what pathogen (germ) or immune response” causes AFM. However, patients' symptoms are similar to “complications of infection with certain viruses, such as poliovirus and West Nile virus,” CDC believes. While the medics believe the condition can be triggered by viral infections, environmental and genetic factors may also contribute to the sudden development of the malady.

Biblical deluge and floods hit Iran

By Strange Sounds - Oct 7, 2018

It’s raining like hell in Iran since two days. The downpour, that has started on Friday, has been the heaviest during the past 20 years in the northern part of the country. The biblical deluge in the northern and northwestern parts of Iran has killed at least seven people. The unprecedented floods in the three provinces of Mazandaran, Gilan and Golestan destroyed roads, houses and bridges, and caused heavy damage to the infrastructures. Cars were stuck in flood, and electricity and gas flows in the rural areas have been disrupted. Iran’s Rescue and Relief Organization announced that the rescue operators have been dispatched to the flood-hit areas to help people pump flood out of their houses. On Twitter some have other opinions: ‘Iran’s regime refuses to provide adequate infrastructure and the people are left to suffer.‘ Well, I believe the sufferers.

World War 3 threat: US admiral warns Russia's missiles could strike ANY capital in Europe

RUSSIA’S plans to step up their underwater military operations is a major “concern”, America's most senior naval officer in Europe has warned as he revealed Moscow's cruise missiles had the capability to reach “any one of the capitals of Europe”.

By Luke Hawker  PUBLISHED: 12:10, Sat, Oct 6, 2018 | UPDATED: 17:01, Sat, Oct 6, 2018

Russian President Vladimir Putin has invested heavily in the Navy increasing their submarine fleet to showcase their strength. Admiral James Foggo, who heads NATO's Allied Joint Force Command in Naples, expressed his concern about the destructiveness of their submarines and cruise missiles, stating they had the capability to reach “any one of the capitals of Europe”. He said: “Russia is not 10 feet tall but they do have assets that keep me vigilant, concerned. One of them is in the undersea domain.” The naval officer also stated the Russians currently have six Kilo-class diesel-electric attack submarines in the Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean. Admiral Foggo said: ”We've seen creation of new classes of all sorts of submarines and ships. I'm more concerned with submarine warfare. "Russians have produced the new Dolgorukiy-class submarine. They've produced the Severodvinsk-class submarine. They've produced the new Kilo hybrid-class submarine.” Adimral Foggo also revealed he has no doubt that Russia sees the US as the main threat. He said: "They see it as one which there is a challenge, and that challenge is the United Stated Navy and the United States submarine force." However Admiral Foggo does not see Russia as an immediate threat and together with NATO they hold an “acoustic advantage”. He said: "I can tell you that we hold an acoustic advantage and we will continue to do that," he said, referring to the listening technologies that allow sailors to locate subs. The upcoming NATO exercise Trident Juncture, which is due to begin October 25 and will involve some 45,000 troops from all NATO members and will be the biggest such drills since the Cold War. The exercise trains troops to repel "an adversary that comes across a NATO ally's border".

Admiral Foggo added: "There's a strong deterrent message here."

Islam: From the Delusional to the Dangerous

A 1,400-year-old primeval testimony of indoctrination and conquest.

October 3, 2018 Amil Imani

It has been widely asserted by many psychologists that human beings act upon their beliefs. Well, if this is true, we can deduce that beliefs direct people in life, and while some beliefs are harmless, some are the motivating force for good, others are delusional, misguided, and even outright dangerous. In my opinion, every version of the belief called “Islam” ranges from the delusional to the dangerous. Islam is a fantasy, birthed by Muhammad’s delusion that he relayed to his first wife and employer, Khadija. Greatly frightened, he told Khadija that he was visited by a jinn (devil) in the Hira cave. Khadija comforted the distraught man by assuring him that the episode was Allah’s way of choosing him as his messenger. Muhammad believed his rich wife/employer, who was 15 years his senior and the delusion became a belief: Islam. Remarkably enough, under the early tutelage of Khadija, Muhammad succeeded in attracting influential followers. Before long, the movement gathered more and more power through violent campaigns, and the faith was taken to new people and foreign lands. This impressive delusion, Islam, presently has in its stranglehold in over a billion humans, posing an existential threat to all non-Muslims. Islam is rooted in the primitive tribal mentality of “Us against Them,” “We the righteous against the heathens,” “We the servants submissive to the Great Allah against the rebellious enemies of Allah.” Islam is a polarizer. Islam is an enemy-maker. To Islam, a non-Muslim is a combatant against Allah, and he is fair game to be subjugated and killed. When some billion and a half people adhere to the pathological belief of Islam and use it as their marching orders for life, the rest of humanity can ignore the threat only at its own peril. After 1400 years, Islam is still on a campaign of conquest throughout the known world. Hordes of life-in-hand foot-soldier fanatical Muslims are striving to kill and get killed. All they want is the opportunity to discharge their homicidal-suicidal impulse, on their way to Allah’s promised glorious afterlife. And in the background, granting the foot-soldiers’ wishes, are their handlers, the puppeteers, who pull the strings and detonate these human bombs. Those who cherish life must recognize these emissaries of death, what makes them, what motivates them, and how best to defend against them. The campaign of death waged by these Islamic jihadists, be he a puppet or a puppeteer, is energized by the belief of delectable rewards that await the faithful implementer of Allah’s dictates. Through a highly effective indoctrination, the jihadist has come to believe firmly in Islam’s absolute delusion. He believes that Allah is the one and only supreme creator of the heavens and the Earth; that it is his duty and privilege, to abide by Allah’s will and carry out his plans at all costs. He believes firmly in a gloriously wonderful immortal afterlife in paradise, for which a martyr’s death is the surest quickest admission. Although the dominating theme of the delusion is quasi-spiritual, the promised rewards of the afterlife awaiting the martyr are sensual and material. All the things and activities that the jihadist desires and cannot attain or practice, and rejects in his earthly life, will be purified and proffered to him in the paradise of the next life. Thus goes the delusion. As I have asserted in my previous articles, it is important to understand that the human mind is not a perfect discerner of objective reality. Reality is in the eye of the beholder. The outside world only supplies bits and pieces of raw material that the mind puts together to form its reality. Depending on the type and number of bits and pieces that a given mind receives, its reality can be very different from that of another mind. The more prescribed and homogeneous a group, the greater is the group’s consensual reality, since the members share much in common, experiential input and reinforce each other’s’ mindset. Thus members of a given religious order, for instance, tend to think much more similarly to one another than to members of other groups with different experiential histories. Various approximations of the objective reality, therefore, rule the mind. The degree to which these approximations deviate from the larger group’s consensual reality determines its delusional extent and severity. A methamphetamine user’s reality is often distorted in a different way. Under the influence of the drug, an intense paranoia overtakes him. His reality is dominated by the belief that one or more people are lurking about to harm or kill him. He may wield a deadly weapon, going from room to room, from closet to closet, in search of the assailants. If you believe that a bug is camping deeply inside your body, then you might go ahead and try to dig the non-existent bug out. If you believe that people are lurking around the house to harm or kill you, you go after them before they get to you. If you believe that all the troubles of the world are due to the evil-doings of the non-Muslims who war against Allah, then you do all you can to fight and kill them, particularly since Allah tells you to do so in the Quran. The drug-induced delusions are hallucinations. They are dramatic and usually transitory, while religiously-based implantation of ideas program the mind with lasting delusions. Delusions, even when they are at great variance from the objective reality, can rule the mind without the need for drugs, or because of neurological dysfunctions or other factors. The young and the less-educated are most vulnerable to believe the claims of charlatans, con artists, and cunning clerics, as truth and reality. The repeated intense indoctrination of the children even changed the perception of some of the charlatan mullahs or the imams, who believed their own lies and rushed to their own death clinging to trinkets. Hence some of the puppeteers, in this instance, became puppets themselves. Such are the folly and fallibility of the human mind. It is, therefore, understandable that many of the higher-up Islamic puppeteers, who are usually brainwashed from early childhood, devote their fortunes and persons to the implementation of their deeply ingrained delusions. Deluded by the threats and promises of Islam, Muslims, rich or poor, vie with one another in furthering the violent cause of Allah. Many non-Muslims are also victims of a different, yet just as deadly, delusion. They believe that Islam is a religion of peace, that only a small minority of Muslims are jihadists, and that Muslims can be reasoned with to abandon the Quran-mandated elimination of non-believers. These well-meaning simpletons are just as deluded as the fanatic jihadists by refusing to acknowledge the fact that one cannot be a Muslim and not abide by the dictates of the Quran.

Haiti earthquake: Haiti capital Port-au-Prince rocked by devastating quake – 14 dead

AT LEAST 14 people are dead after a devastating 5.9 magnitude earthquake rocked Haiti, shaking the capital city of Port-au-Prince.

By Thomas Mackie PUBLISHED: 00:18, Mon, Oct 8, 2018 | UPDATED: 07:01, Mon, Oct 8, 2018

The quake struck the nation, located just outside the Pacific's deadly Ring of Fire, at 12.11am BST on Sunday with a depth of 10km. Pictures from the scene show crumbling building and damage to vehicles and walls after the devasting quake struck the Caribbean nation injuring up to 135 people. The quake was centred around 12 miles (20 km) west-northwest of Ti Port-de-Paix off Haiti's north coast. The police chief for the north-west region, Jackson Hilaire, initially confirmed seven people died in Port-de-Paix, while the interior minister, Reynaldo Brunet, said three people had died further south in the town of Gros Morne. Le Nouvelliste newspaper said one person had died when an auditorium collapsed in Gros Morne. Detainees were also released from a police holding cell that was damaged. People flocked to social media to say the quake had been felt in Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital, but there had not been any major damage. Haiti is prone to earthquakes as the island sits adjacent to major fault lines along the so-called "Ring of Fire". This is a horseshoe-shaped belt running around the Pacific Ocean where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. About 90 percent of all earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire, which is dotted with 75 percent of all the active volcanoes on earth. Haiti's Civil Protection agency says 135 injuries have been reported. But the full extent of the damage and number of casualties is still emerging as authorities assess the areas affected. The Civil Protection agency said: "Our teams from north to south are witnessing a state of panic in some cities." Haiti’s president Jovenel Moïse said: “An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 has hit Haiti. “According to the first reports by the Civil Protection, there is damage in the Far North of the Island. “I am working closely with authorities for an appropriate response. A local official said at least eight people died in Port-de-Paix on the northern coast near the epicenter of the quake. Four people were killed in and around the town of Gros-Morne farther south, local authorities said, including a woman who died from a heart attack suffered after the quake. Another person was killed in the town of Chansolme when a house collapsed and one other person in Saint-Louis-du-Nord. Rescue teams fanned out to help residents, many of whom were still dealing with the trauma of a devastating earthquake in 2010. This is the strongest earthquake to hit Haiti since 2010. In 2010, Haiti was devasted by a quake measuring 7.3 on the richter scale. The earthquake happened at 16:53 local time on Tuesday, 12 January 2010. By January 24, at least 52 aftershocks measuring 4.5 or greater were recorded. An estimated three million people were affected by the quake. More than 220,000 people were killed and over 300,000 were injured. The horrific earthquake, which was the biggest the region had seen in 200 years, left more than 1.5 million people homeless and resulted in an immense humanitarian crisis.

The Tyranny of “The Collective” by the Illusions of Narratives

By Doug “Uncola” Lynn via TheBurningPlatform.com

We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. – George Orwell, “1984”, part 3, chapter 3,

It is a fact the election of Donald Trump exposed certain undeniable realities in the United States for those willing to see. Perhaps first and foremost of the various revelations is the bona fide existence of The Collective. Also known as the Uniparty or The Establishment, The Collective is comprised of the following: The Democratic Party, Republican’s in Name Only (RINOs), Neo-conservatives (Neocons), the Mainstream Media, the Corporatocracy, globalists, elite bankers and unelected government bureaucrats and officials; also often referred to as The Deep State or Military Industrial Complex. All of these entities have attained singularity through the decades while, for the most part, retaining some “plausible deniability” of their collusive connectivity prior to the 2016 Presidential Election. But now the veil has been lifted. As The Collective has unified in polar opposition against everything Trump, so has its immorality and lawlessness been additionally exposed; like nude streetwalkers performing dirty tricks in broad daylight on busy corners. Over the past half century, if not before, The Collective has politicized, and weaponized, everything it could subvert. From the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to the courts, from professional football to late night comedy, from Hollywood to advertising, from social media to education, from race to gender, to sex. Especially sex; and in ways seemingly derived from the nightmares of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley. Paradoxically, however, it is more often the values of conservatives only that are called into account. The Collective will string up blacks like Clarence Thomas via high-tech lynchings and bully free-thinking Afro-Americans like Kanye West, Candace Owens, and Stacy Dash by labeling them “Uncle Toms”. The Collective will pass judgement on conservative Supreme Court nominees with no evidence beyond slander and innuendo. In fact, it is The Collective desiring One World Under Them, which wields Orwellian Newspeak terminology such as racist, misogynist, homophobic, xenophobe, and Islamophobia, like the proverbial pitchforks and torches. The Collective sows the politics of personal destruction in order to reap the whirlwinds of division. It shills rancor and broken dreams in order to form a new reality in its own image. A world where timeless moral principles are set aside for (they claim) the good of all. Notwithstanding, The Collective’s new religion is as phony as Michael Avenatti’s concern for clients. Now social media companies have purged “thought criminals” on their respective platforms, even as the rogue special counsel investigator, Robert Mueller, has exploited imaginary crimes in order to conceal actual government corruption and, likely, treason. The Collective preaches the tolerance of transgender men in the bathrooms of our daughters and wives while actively bullying and defaming those they consider as dissidents. Falsehoods from contrived, and illegal, government “leaks” are published and broadcast as being true while real facts are slandered as “fake news”. A public that can no longer distinguish between truth and fiction is left to interpret reality through illusion. Random facts or obscure bits of data and trivia are used either to bolster illusion and give it credibility, or discarded if they interfere with the message… When opinions cannot be distinguished from facts, when there is no universal standard to determine truth in law, in science, in scholarship, or in reporting the events of the day, when the most valued skill is the ability to entertain, the world becomes a place where lies become true, where people can believe what they want to believe. This is the real danger of pseudo-events and pseudo-events are far more pernicious than stereotypes. They do not explain reality, as stereotypes attempt to, but replace reality. Pseudo-events redefine reality by the parameters set by their creators. These creators, who make massive profits selling illusions, have a vested interest in maintaining the power structures they control. – Hedges, Chris (2009). “Empire of Illusion”, Nation Books, New York, NY, 2009, page 51 Kabuki Theater? Or Political Darwinism? Either way, conservatives lose political ground whenever they swallow the moral premises of The Collective. This is because The Collective utilizes deception to conceal their actual motives while simultaneously gaslighting and blackmailing conservatives by means of conservative values. In a manufactured reality, pseudo-events are designed to create consensus in order to manipulate outcomes. In other words, The Collective spins illusion by means of narrative. In the gun control and immigration debates, for example, The Collective doesn’t really care for “the children”. In truth, they use “the children” as a means to consolidate political power. Certainly, The Collective weaponizes the morality of conservatives against said conservatives; and whenever the twisted virtue of The Collective is accepted, the new global religion expands. Consider the Kavanaugh debacle. Underlying all of the Supreme Court nomination theater, the desire of those opposing the judge is simply this: To project a woman’s right to choose. Whether or not Kavanaugh is actually a threat to that right is beyond the point. He is perceived as a threat to “Roe v. Wade” by his opponents. This means a man’s reputation has now been slandered, and without any real evidence, in order to protect a woman’s right to abort her fetus at will. At the same time, it’s quite possible The Collective has staged the Kavanaugh production in order to further decimate America’s institutions in pursuit of global objectives. You win, they win. You lose, they win. Dirty politics are merely a subset of politics; and politics define Man’s relations with Man. If the U.S. Constitution was set-up to facilitate political, economic, and religious freedom – then wouldn’t an ideal system designed to control the masses, tear down these same conceptions? And how would such a system take hold? Perhaps by combining opposites through a twisted sort of immoral ecumenicalism: law plus corruption, androgyny, race and gender divisions by means of political correctness, slander, accusations, and lies – and all for the purposes of a new global singularity. It’s no surprise how The Collective confounds the logical. It loudly laments children being separated from their parents at the border AND Judge Kavanaugh for threatening the freedom of mothers who choose separation in the womb. If old-fashioned virtues such as logic, reason, morality, and law, no longer apply in politics today, then progress now simply requires faith; or, rather, what people believe. Even so, who says the theological premises currently conveyed by The Collective should be accepted at all? They do. That’s who. Unfortunately, in all circumstances electronically programmed, or manufactured, the consensus remains real nevertheless. Therefore, the actual enemy of common sense and decency currently, is not only The Collective, but moreso those who support The Collective with their votes, and by believing its lies, innuendo, accusations, and slander. Therein also lies the dialectical dilemma of the mushy-minded middle; including Republican Senators like Jeff Flake, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski: As The Collective descends further into criminality, corruption, and dishonor, these blind centrists now lament the lack of “cooperation” and “compromise” in America. Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. – Yeats, William Butler (1920). “The Second Coming”. Only one of the bimodal goalposts has significantly moved over the past six decades, yet the lukewarm lament the widening gyre and blame both teams. In the long term, these people cannot save the nation. So is it all just politics, or reality television? The differences, of course, are in the consequences. Reality can never be denied for long and this is reality: We’ve passed the point of no return. America is circling the drain. All of her institutions are under attack currently and, barring any great and unforeseen circumstances, won’t survive. In order to truly drain the swamp, a lot of people would have to die. Conversely, so, too, must others be removed prior to the establishment of the New Faith. Therefore, a larger question remains: Who dies and who survives? The Russian investigation has decimated the trust of fifty-percent of the country in the voting system. The credibility of the FBI and Department of Justice (DoJ) has been destroyed in the eyes of the other fifty percent. Half of America hates Trump as Congress now experiences abysmal approval ratings. Most recently, the Kavanaugh affair has acted as a splitting maul in a country of felled trees; while the Supreme Court nomination process, and likely the Court itself, now falls to the sound of “timber”. Is it that simple? As easy as left and right, he said, she said, and black and white? Either way, there are no participation trophies awarded in Political Darwinism. Many on the right are playing the voting game while The Collective establishes its new religion. In truth, The Collective will sacrifice everything you have and blame you all the way down. Be assured it is their plan because compromise is no longer an option. The Rubicon has been crossed and there are those who will die to defend their New World Order. How about you?

Dems New America: Guilty Until You Prove Your Innocence

Oct 04, 2018 Read More Articles by Dave Daubenmire

Stop the Sexual Profiling

I travel a lot. More than I would like to. I am sitting in the airport typing this. I usually enjoy myself when I get to my destination but the constant suspicion I am under while traveling to and from makes me uncomfortable. Angry, actually. That would be a better description of what I feel. How did we reach the point in America where we are considered guilty until proven innocent? That phrase…guilty until proven innocent… has been getting a lot of attention lately with the reputation-mugging of Judge Kavanaugh. But we shouldn’t be surprised because the presumption of guilt is evident every time I try to board an airplane. In the eyes of the TSA we are all considered guilty. We have to prove our innocence before we can set foot in the plane. Security…that is what they tell us. We have to sacrifice our freedom in order to be safe. But why don’t I feel any safer after I remove my shoes and give them the opportunity to explore any body cavity they choose in order to prove my innocence? It is all about conditioning. Racial profiling is bad, they say, so in order to catch the real crooks we must all be considered guilty. It is the new way of doing justice in the good old U S of A. But even more insidious than the TSA is the blatant sexual profiling of men…especially white Christian men. Can you believe that we even put up with this bunk? Do me a favor and let me know if you can list one group of Americans that is more profiled than men? If you were to take your cues from the Senate hearings, and make no mistake they are programming you to think a specific way, ALL men are sexual predators. ALL women are honest and would never lie. All women are victims. All men are guilty until they prove their innocence. White privilege and white guilt are now weapon-ized and used every day in the moral cesspool that we find ourselves navigating through. ALL Christians are bigots. ALL Christians are full of hate. ALL Christians are racist. All Christian men take advantage of women. That is what patriarchy is all about. Guilty until proven innocent. Men are pigs. Ask the women who sleep with women. Let there be no doubt about it, it is Christianity that the God-haters are hell bent on destroying. Have you noticed that in the Kavanaugh hearings NO ONE is questioning the integrity of the accuser? Why, she is a woman and we all know that poor, helpless women don’t lie. Everyone is falling over backwards speaking about her “bravery” and how “believable” she is. It makes me gag. I think she is lying. Am I allowed to say that? Is a white male permitted to have an opinion in America anymore? Is it bigotry and sexual harassment simply to question what some appearing-out-of-nowhere babe has to say? Believing her just because she is a woman is a most insidious form of bigotry. Does anatomy now determine veracity? Is a woman to be believed simply because she has a vagina? Sorry dudes and dudettes, but I ain’t buying it. The real war in America is the war on men. I don’t trust Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Susan Collins, Maxine Waters, Joy Behar, Whoopi, and Potifar’s wife. I think they are conniving, sexist, and power hungry. Everyone lies about sex…remember Bill Clinton’s defenders? Any woman who would support the killing of an unborn baby cannot be trusted. Abortion reveals a great character flaw. Lying about sex would be nothing compared to lying to kill an unborn child. The freakin men better stand up and start fighting. Women run the home, they run the schools, the run the church, and they run the government. But most importantly, they run the bedroom. Rare is the woman who has made it to the top who has not used her sexuality to her advantage. There. I said it. I’m tired of the double standard. Evil women sexualize their power. Weak men are putting up with it. If you think that women don’t use sex as a weapon you are a fool. What is that saying…hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? A woman would never lie to protect her right to abortion, now would she? And yes I am married. Thirty nine years next month. My wife loves me and I love her. She agrees with my assessment. Our marriage bed is undefiled. How many elected officials can claim that? Sexual profiling is making men fearful and weak. Grow a pair, Pal. Stand up and push back. But we all know that women don’t lie…right? Sorry, but lying has no gender. Trump is the only politician with balls. He scares the men as much as the women. Be sure to vote in November. A vote for Trump’s team is a vote for manhood. You are a male by birth but you are a man by choice. It’s time to man up fellas.

How Globalists Plan To Use Technology And Poverty To Enslave The Masses

Thursday, 04 October 2018 05:36 Brandon Smith

Tyranny is often seen as a sudden and inexplicable development in a society; the product of a singular despot that rockets to power for a limited window of time due to public fear or stupidity. This is one of the great lies of the modern era. The truth is that for at least the past century almost every historically despised “tyrant” was merely a puppet of a larger managerial cabal, and the construction of each totalitarian state was accomplished slowly and quietly over the course of decades by those same financial elitists. From the Bolsheviks, to Hitler and the Third Reich, to Mao Zedong, to most tin-pot dictators across the Middle East and Africa, there has always been an organized group of money men and think tanks fueling the careers of the worst politicians and military juntas of the epoch. The rise of a tyrannical system takes extensive time, planning and staging. Human beings do not simply jump right into the arms of a dystopian nightmare regime impulsively at a moment’s notice. We have been told by popular media that this is how it works; that during hard economic or social conditions men with charismatic personalities and evil intentions suddenly rise to the surface and take power by promising a better world in exchange for public fealty. But where did those economic and social crises come from to begin with? Were they a natural consequence of the era, or were they deliberately engineered? The reality is that people must be psychologically conditioned to trade freedom for the illusion of safety. Sometimes this takes generations. Every attempt at a totalitarian framework inevitably elicits a rebellion. Therefore, the most successful tyranny would be one that the public DEMANDS. They have to think it is their idea, otherwise they will eventually fight it. Globalist financiers and power addicts need something more than mere military might or bureaucratic force to obtain their ideal slave society. They need 4th Generation warfare tactics. They need to con the masses into accepting their own servitude. There are two tools that make this outcome possible: The first is controlled economic decline, the second is the integration of a technological gulag into every aspect of public life. Economic Weapons Of Mass Distraction It is no coincidence that dictatorial governments gain prominence as the global economy suffers; it is extremely difficult for people to remain vigilant to tyranny when they are completely distracted by their own survival. This is why my focus as an analyst has always been primarily on economics and solutions to fiscal disaster; it all begins and ends with the economy. If the public can be prepped to develop their own alternative economic systems before a crisis occurs, then they will be less distracted by the chaos and more apt to notice when the globalists offer tyranny as a fix-all. Without alternative markets at the local level there is no redundancy, no protection from a crash. With most people dependent on the existing system for their livelihoods, the economy becomes a very useful weapon for the globalists. Holding the economy hostage creates numerous advantages. Through deflationary pressure wages can be kept low while higher paying jobs disappear. Manufacturing can be phased out or outsourced overseas, as in the U.S. Small business ownership becomes difficult as taxes generally rise while financial conditions decline. Through inflationary or stagflationary pressures, low wages and the inadequate job market are combined with exploding prices. This makes survival for many people untenable without government aid. In this environment, the working public becomes reliant on the service sector, which provides no useful skill sets. Soon, you have entire generations of people with no production abilities whatsoever. They become drones working in meaningless office and retail jobs squandering away their days knowing that they are accomplishing nothing beyond a meager paycheck. The lack of a greater purpose or mission in life and the nagging realization that the average person has no productive capacity creates a palpable atmosphere of desperation. They do not own their own work, and they have nothing much to show for their labor; nothing to point at and say, “I built that.” The public gets to the point that they may even welcome an economic collapse simply to escape the drudgery. This is where movements to support totalitarianism come fromthe subset of citizens that are fed up with fighting against the economy and have no sense of independence. These people do not know how to solve their own problems, they are always looking for someone else to do it for them. The globalists are happy to suggest their own predetermined solutions to the public once the financial structure hits a point of maximum pain. However, after the economy is repaired in exchange for the submission of the citizenry, people might still decide one day that the trade was unfair. Thus, a deterrent is needed to keep them in line. The Technological Fish Tank It is important to understand that there is no major country in the western OR eastern world that is not building a digital control grid, and this helps to support my position that eastern nations are just as subservient to globalist demands as western nations. All the geopolitical drama surrounding events like the trade war, the Syrian war or various elections, etc.; none of this matters in the end. When determining if the strings of a particular government are being pulled by the globalist cabal, all you have to do is look at how quickly they are implementing oppressive systems that serve globalist interests. For example, India’s government has been hitting the news feeds lately as their supreme court recently ruled that the controversial Aadhaar biometric program is legal. In a nation of 1.3 billion people, around 1 billion have already been biometrically profiled in a national database. This data can include fingerprints, iris scans and face scans. I have heard it argued that India is a rather odd place to experiment with such a database, considering 60% of the population is under the poverty line and most people barely have basic amenities. But I would point out that this is why it is a PERFECT place for the globalists to start cataloging the world population on larger scale. Again, financial desperation and a lack of productions skills tends to produce subservience. Hundreds of millions of poverty stricken people in India’s sprawling urban sewers are voluntarily giving up their biometric data in exchange for government aid programs. For the people not anchored down by the poor economy India has instituted other measures, including requiring anyone accessing government services, opening a bank account or signing up for a mobile phone service also give up their biometrics to the government. In nations not yet impoverished at India’s level, more subversive measures have been instituted for surveillance of the population. Data is simply taken rather than traded. In Russia, Vladimir Putin has put the Yarovaya laws he signed in 2016 into effect. All digital data from phone conversations to emails is now recorded and stored by telecoms for government access for a minimum of six months, this includes Facebook and Twitter posts. The 2014 bloggers law also requires any blogger with over 3,000 followers be put on government file and they cannot remain anonymous. Any business operating a public Wi-Fi network is required by law to identify users by ID, which is also stored for at least six months. Russia’s FISA-style surveillance grid is vast, yet, many people in the liberty movement seem to ignore this reality with misplaced Putin-worship. As I have noted in numerous articles, Russia is heavily influenced by international financiers. Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan are the largest investment banks in the country. Their central bank works closely with the IMF and the BIS. The Kremlin has in the past called for a global currency controlled by the IMF. And Putin even admits in his own biography First Person that he has been friends with New World Order salesman Henry Kissinger since before he became president of Russia. In a latest show of how globalist Russia really is, the Russian Foreign Minister recently criticized the U.S. in a speech to the U.N. general assembly over its “attacks” on the “international order,” including undermining the World Trade Organization and global climate change agreements. With the above in mind, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Russia is playing right along with globalist efforts to identify and track every single living person. It should also come as no surprise that Donald Trump, surrounded by globalists within his own cabinet, is continuing and expanding FISA surveillance under his administration. At the beginning of 2018 Trump signed a bill renewing the National Security Agency’s warrantless FISA mass surveillance of the American population. Leading Democrats happily supported the action. Despite all of Trump’s rhetoric against FISA recently, it was Trump that made FISA’s continuation possible. Major social media companies are cooperating wholeheartedly with mass surveillance efforts as they share personal data with governments around the world regularly. Facebook alone saw an increase in government requests for data of over 33% in 2017, and the nature of most of this data sharing is not open to public scrutiny. This is one reason why I'm rather bewildered by the recent conservative fury over social media discrimination - it's as if personal liberty activists are being tricked with reverse psychology to DEMAND unhindered participation in media sites that spy on them. Why does anyone still want to sign up for these websites? But where is this all going? How does the combination of poverty and digital surveillance translate to tyranny? I believe China’s “social credit” program is the answer. The system is based on the idea of "maintaining trust", but whose trust? Well, the government's trust, of course. Trust is measured using a social credit score that is tracked over a citizen's life. Punished behaviors include anything from smoking in a no smoking area to publishing internet content that the powers-that-be disapprove of. China is representative of the end game for the globalist ideal for civilization. With mass economic struggle leading to dependency on government welfare programs and employment opportunities, few citizens can afford to be “blacklisted.” China’s social credit system creates an environment in which any and every action on the part of citizens is tracked and then “rated” for acceptance or consequence. This includes how people express attitudes toward the government itself. Obviously, this is the ultimate control mechanism, very similar to the Cheka established by Lenin and Stalin in Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution, but on a massive digital scale.  This is why mass surveillance is evil, regardless of whether someone is breaking the laws or not. It gives government the power to dictate and mold behavior by inspiring self-censorship rather than holding people directly at gun point. It is tyranny enforced in a less obvious way; a prison in which the prisoners maintain the locks and the chains and the bars. Individuals do not dare do anything outside of collective norms for fear that it could be interpreted as socially negative. Punishment might include loss of access to the economy itself, and when most people are living from paycheck to paycheck, this could mean death.

Now the volcanoes! Indonesia's Son of Krakatoa erupts after the Mount Soputan volcano erupted close to Fridays M 7.5 quake and tsunami

Wednesday, 3 October 2018

Video footage shows the vast volcano erupting (Image: @Sutopo_PN-Twitter)

A second volcano eruption has occurred in Indonesia just hours after the Mount Soputan volcano erupted on the same island as the M7.4 quake and deadly tsunami which has left 1,400 dead from the tsunami and a further 2,000 dead from landslides. The vast volcano, known as the Son of Krakatoa, is spewing lava into the air as the region is hit by another natural disaster. According to the Daily Express, Lava is also running down the volcano’s slopes as the region reels from the devastation left by a magnitude 7.5 earthquake and consequent tsunami on the Sulawesi island last Friday. Indonesia is located in the Ring of Fire region, one of the worst affected areas by earthquakes in the world. Volcanoes Front Page Posted by Gary Walton at 11:39 am

Trump: I Told Saudi King He Wouldn’t Last Without US Support

avatar by Reuters and Algemeiner Staff October 3, 2018 12:28 pm

President Donald Trump made an undiplomatic remark about close ally Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, saying he warned Saudi Arabia’s King Salman he would not last in power “for two weeks” without the backing of the US military. “We protect Saudi Arabia. Would you say they’re rich. And I love the King, King Salman. But I said ‘King — we’re protecting you — you might not be there for two weeks without us — you have to pay for your military,'” Trump said to cheers at a rally in Southaven, Mississippi. Trump did not say when he made those remarks to the Saudi monarch. Despite the harsh words, the Trump administration has had a close relationship with Saudi Arabia, which it views as a bulwark against Iran’s ambitions in the region. Trump made Saudi Arabia his first stop on his maiden international trip as president last year. Trump called King Salman on Saturday and they discussed efforts being made to maintain supplies to ensure oil market stability and global economic growth, according to Saudi state news agency SPA. Saudi Arabia is the world’s top oil exporter and the de facto leader of OPEC, which has been criticized by Trump for high oil prices. Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly in New York last month, Trump said OPEC members were “as usual ripping off the rest of the world.” “We defend many of these nations for nothing, and then they take advantage of us by giving us high oil prices. Not good. We want them to stop raising prices, we want them to start lowering prices,” Trump said. He has also pressed other US allies, such as Japan, South Korea, and Germany, to take more of the financial burden of their defense.

Sukkot Ends With Clouds of Gog Magog War on Temple Mount [VIDEO]

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 3, 2018 , 2:06 pm

I wipe away your sins like a cloud, Your transgressions like mist— Come back to Me, for I redeem you. Isaiah 44:22 (The Israel Bible™)

On Sunday, a group of Jews praying on the Mount of Olives witnessed a large white cloud rise up out of the ground from the Temple Mount. The phenomenon was recorded by Josh Wander, a Mount of Olives resident. A sunrise prayer session was organized on a plaza overlooking the Temple Mount for the holiday of Hoshana Rabbah, the last day of the week-long holiday of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). “Just after sunrise, I was recording a Facebook live video of the prayers when I panned my camera to the Temple Mount,” Wander told Breaking Israel News. “All of a sudden, I noticed a cloud or fog that erupted from the northeastern corner of the mount. It seemed to be coming from the area which was designated for women in the time of the Temple and the eastern gateway, which confused me, since I know that today, it is an orchard of olive trees and there is normally no activity there.” The balcony of Wander’s home overlooks the Temple Mount so he is intimately familiar with the scenery. He is also a regular visitor to the site and said he has never seen anything like this before. “It was billowing up so I thought some Arabs might be burning branches,” Wander said. “But it was much too early for Arabs to be on the Temple Mount and I didn’t see any Arabs there before, during, or after and certainly no fire. It was not just a thin mist and the video doesn’t really convey the presence of the mist.” When he lived in the United States, Wander served as a pilot in the Air Force Auxiliary where he was trained to identify clouds. Meteorology and identifying clouds is an essential part of pilot training. “There was very little wind and the smoke just seemed to crawl across the mount toward the Dome of the Rock,” Wander said. “It seemed to come out of a specific spot but after several minutes, it seemed to be rising up from multiple sources in the same general area.” Wander reluctantly described the mist with a word he rarely uses. “It looked supernatural,” he said. Not trusting his own eyes, Wander asked the people around him if they could also see the mist. Most were immersed in their holiday prayers and had not noticed but when it was pointed out, they confirmed the mist’s presence. The phenomenon lingered on the ground around the golden dome for more than 20 minutes. “I am certainly not the kind of person who sees signs in nature,” Wander said. “But this was just too out of the ordinary to ignore. It looked eery and the location, the site of the Holy of Holies, is too significant.” When Rabbi Yosef Berger heard of the sighting, he responded with equanimity. “If you had told me that it happened any other day of the year, I would not have assigned it any significance,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News. “But to have this cloud appear on Hoshana Rabbah is highly significant and makes me happy, knowing the geula (redemption) is at hand.” The rabbi cited Midrash Talpiot, a collection of homiletic and oral teachings compiled by Elijah ben Solomon Abraham ha-Kohen of Smyrna in the 17th century. “It is written in the Midrash Talpiot that the War of Gog and Magog will begin three hours before the dawn on Hoshana Rabbah, the battle will last three hours, and then the Moshiach will begin to appear,” Rabbi Berger said. “Of course this war is accompanied by flames and smoke as was hinted at in Psalms.” Hashem is in its midst, it will not be toppled; by daybreak…He puts a stop to wars throughout the earth, breaking the bow, snapping the spear, consigning wagons to the flames. Psalms 46:6-10 “It very well could be that a major battle was being waged on the Temple Mount on the spiritual plane and the only part of it that we could see was the smoke,” Rabbi Berger said. “It has been clear all year that a war is being waged for the Temple Mount.” The rabbi noted that a record 28,000 Jews ascended to the Temple Mount in the past year and an additional 5,000 visited the site during the recent holidays. “Smoke is only one aspect of the war, an illusion that we can see with our eyes while the real battle is being waged on planes we cannot see,” Berger said. “The real battle goes much deeper. We may be seeing other aspects of the battle in the near future.” “During Sukkot we read about Gog and Magog in the Haftarah (a section of the Bible – usually from the Prophets – read in the synagogue that is thematically linked to the Torah reading). On Pesach, we read as the Haftarah Ezekiel’s vision of the Dry Bones,” Rabbi Berger said. “The war begins on the last day of Sukkot and the resurrection begins on Pesach.” Rabbi Berger noted that Hoshana Rabbah is the day of judgment for the nations. “We are seeing a realignment among the nations concerning Israel,” Berger said. “The United Nations is going through changes and may cease to exist. In England, America, Germany, and so many countries, their politics is being determined by how they relate to Israel and the Bible. This is a precursor to what will happen soon, what is already taking place on levels we cannot see.”

Israel's 'Nationality' Law and Palestinian Lies

by Bassam Tawil October 1, 2018 at 5:00 am

It is far from clear why the Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip should be concerned about Israel's new Nation-State Law. The Palestinians living in these areas are not Israeli citizens and are not part of the Israeli political system. The Palestinians living in these areas have their own (Palestinian) citizenship, their own flag, their own parliament and their own government. They are not affected by the law in any way. This fact renders their opposition to the law little less than ridiculous. This is the logic of Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians: Israel defining itself as a Jewish state is an act of "racism" and "apartheid," while, as a matter of course, the future Palestinian state will be an Islamic state governed by Sharia law, and that, presumably, is not an act of "racism" or "apartheid." Before condemning Israel for seeking to preserve its character as a Jewish state, the world needs to explain why it is all right for the Palestinians to plan that their future state will be ruled by Islamic law. We are witnessing yet another remarkable mirror image brought to us by the Palestinians: once again, they seek to deny Israel precisely what they believe should come to them on a silver platter. For the past few weeks, the Palestinians and their leaders have been raising strident voices against Israel's new Nation-State Law, which specifies the nature of the State of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. The Palestinians have condemned the law as "racist" and claimed that it paves the way for Israel becoming an "apartheid state." This week, Palestinians declared a general strike in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to protest the law, which, they say, "eliminates the two-state solution." It is far from clear, however, why the Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip should be concerned about the new law. The Palestinians living in these areas are not Israeli citizens and are not part of the Israeli political system. The Palestinians living in these areas have their own (Palestinian) citizenship, their own flag, their own parliament and their own government. They are not affected by the law in any way. This fact renders their opposition to the law little less than ridiculous. Because they have their own parliament and state institutions, the Palestinians are free to pass any laws they wish without seeking permission from Israel or any other party. Most people are unaware that the Palestinians do have their own laws, including the "Palestinian Basic Law," which was passed by the Palestinian Legislative Council in 2002. Why is it important to remind the world of this Palestinian law now? Since the Palestinians are voicing their strong opposition to the Israeli Nation-State Law (which has nothing to do with them), there is a need to bring to international attention one of the major articles of the Palestinian Basic law. Only then will the world understand how the Palestinians and their leaders are duping everyone and engaging in hypocrisy and double standards. The Palestinians say they cannot accept Israel as a Jewish state and will never recognize it as the homeland of the Jewish people. This, the Palestinians argue, is one of the main reasons why they are opposed to the new Israeli law. In recent years, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly expressed his vehement refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. In fact, he has never missed an opportunity to make his position clear on this subject. "We will not recognize or accept the Jewishness of Israel," Abbas has repeatedly stated over the past few years. Abbas and the Palestinians will, of course, never accept Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people. Doing so, they reckon, would mean that Palestinian refugees and their descendants will never return to their former homes inside refugees and their descendants will never return to their former homes inside of Israel. The Palestinians continue to argue that the "right of return" is sacred and, under any deal with Israel, millions of Palestinians should be permitted to converge on Israel -- a move that would mean turning the Jews into a minority in their own country. The Palestinians, however, who are hell-bent against Israel declaring itself a Jewish state, are the very ones who are affirming that Islam will the official religion in a future Palestinian state. Here is what Article 4 of the Palestinian Basic Law states: "Islam is the official religion in Palestine. The principles of Islamic Sharia shall be the main source of legislation. Arabic shall be the official language." So, this is the logic of Abbas and the Palestinians: Israel defining itself as a Jewish state is an act of "racism" and "apartheid," while, as a matter of course, the future Palestinian state will be an Islamic state governed by Sharia law, and that is not presumably an act of "racism" or "apartheid." In a further ironic twist, the Palestinians say that they oppose the new Israeli law because it "abolishes" Arabic as an official language in Israel (a false claim), while they themselves are poised to make Arabic the sole official language of their future state. In fact, the Israeli Nation-State Law does recognize Arabic as a primary language. Here is what the law says in this regard: "The Arabic language has a special status in the state; the regulation of the Arabic language in state institutions or when facing them will be regulated by law. This clause does not change the status given to the Arabic language." While Israel continues to respect the Arabic language and has even granted it special status, the Palestinians -- in their Palestinian Basic Law -- make no reference to any language other than Arabic. The Palestinian law does not even mention English, Hebrew or French as secondary languages. It states that the only official language in the Palestinian state will be Arabic, and Arabic alone. This is where the double standards can be found with regards to the Palestinians' and the others' position on the Israeli Nation-State Law. Before condemning Israel for seeking to preserve its character as a Jewish state, the world needs to explain why it is all right for the Palestinians to plan that their future state will be ruled by Islamic law. Why are the Palestinians permitted to plan for Islam to be their official religion, while Israel is denounced for seeking to maintain its Jewish character and identity? Moreover, why is Israel castigated because of a law that guarantees special status to Arabic in the Jewish state, while not a voice is raised in wonderment as to why the Palestinians refuse any language other than Arabic in their future state? We are witnessing yet another remarkable mirror image brought to us by the Palestinians: once again, they seek to deny Israel precisely what they believe should come to them on a silver platter. But this is the old Palestinian story in a new bottle. This time, the Palestinians wish to keep the tenets of the Palestinian Basic Law under wraps. Perhaps they are somewhat concerned about world opinion on the matter. Given the history of world opinion on related Palestinian duplicity, however, perhaps the Palestinians have less to worry about that they believe.

Volcano erupts on quake-hit Indonesian island

Mount Soputan started spewing ash five days after Sulawesi was hit by a 7.5-magnitude earthquake and tsunami.

12:19, UK, Wednesday 03 October 2018 By Alix Culbertson, news reporter

A volcano has erupted on the Indonesian island hit by an earthquake and tsunami five days ago.

Mount Soputan in North Sulawesi province starting spewing ash 6,000m (19,685ft) into the sky on Wednesday afternoon. A government volcanologist said he suspects the eruption was triggered by last Friday's 7.5-magnitude earthquake, which also created a tsunami and has killed 1,407 people - with the number rising daily. Planes have been warned about ash clouds, as they can be hazardous for their engines. Air evacuations only recently began in Central Sulawesi - about 585 miles (940km) southwest of the volcano - and aid planes have also just started to be able to get to Palu, the city most badly hit by the tsunami. The volcano's eruption status was raised from an alert to standby 2.5 miles (4km) from the summit and up to four miles (6.5km) to the west-southwest. Standby status means people should avoid the area nearest the volcano and have masks available in case of ash fall. The Indonesian archipelago has dozens of active volcanoes as it is on the Pacific Ring of Fire. Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo arrived in Palu just hours before Mount Soputan erupted. It is the first time he has visited the area since the quake hit five days previously, with the government heavily criticized for a lack of disaster planning as residents in and around Palu have struggled to get food, water or medical aid for days. Many villages have been cut off by landslides caused by the earthquake, with the number of deaths expected to rise even further over the coming days. Mr Widodo said: "Logistics are in and continue to spread, there are places that we haven't reached. "I've instructed the governor to recommend the markets to be reopened, we want to start reviving the economy." As aid began trickling in, residents in one neighbourhood clapped, cheered and high-fived the arrival of a supply truck. One of them, clutching a box of instant noodles, said: "I really haven't eaten for three days." But aid is yet to reach the hardest-hit areas outside Palu as the UN humanitarian office said people urgently require shelter, clean water, food, fuel and emergency medical care. Yahdi Basma, a leader from a village south of Palu, said he is hoping to get his family on a cargo plane out because there is no aid. "The president is not hearing about the remote areas, only about the tsunami and about Palu," he said. "There are hundreds of people still buried under the mud in my village. I lost many members of my family and neighbours. There is no aid whatsoever which is why we're leaving." Entire neighbourhoods have been swallowed up by the process of liquefaction, which happens when the earthquake shakes the soil - making it behave like a liquid. Hundreds of people are believed to have perished due to liquefaction, the Indonesia disaster agency said. Indonesia's military chief said soldiers and other forces have been deployed to Palu to guard any remaining key infrastructure, fuel depots and the airport - which was badly damaged - to stop any looting attempts. Police in the city had not been arresting looters desperate for food and water until Tuesday when other items such as computers were stolen.

Chinese destroyer came within 45 yards of US destroyer in South China Sea, says report

USS Decatur departs for deployment. (U.S. Navy/Released)

October 01, 2018 Laura Widener

A close call occurred in the South China Sea between a United States Navy ship and a Chinese warship over the weekend. The Chinese warship came within just 45-yards of the USS Decatur on Sunday in what was called an “unsafe” interaction, according to two defense officials who spoke with CNN on Monday. Capt. Charles Brown, a spokesman for US Pacific Fleet, told CNN that “A (People’s Republic of China) Luyang destroyer approached USS Decatur in an unsafe and unprofessional maneuver in the vicinity of Gaven Reef in the South China Sea.” He added that the Chinese ship “approached within 45 yards” of the USS Decatur, and “conducted a series of increasingly aggressive maneuvers accompanied by warnings for the Decatur to depart the area.” The USS Decatur was forced to maneuver away “to prevent a collision.” The USS Decatur was conducting a “freedom of navigation” operation to ensure free passage for vessels in international waters. The operation took place in area of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. “US Forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region on a daily basis, including the South China Sea. All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows,” a US defense official told CNN over the weekend. The Spratly Islands is one of the island groups claimed by China, who has militarized the Spratly, Paracel, and other island clusters. The Chinese military remains on edge about operations nearing their claim, especially amid trade tensions with the U.S. The last freedom of navigation operation took place in May when two U.S. Navy warships traveled near the Paracel Islands. Last week, the U.S. flew two B-52 bombers in a routine operation over the South China Sea, another action that worried Chinese officials. China’s Defense Ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang called it a “provocative action” and warned, “we will take all necessary means to safeguard our rights and interests.” Despite China’s warnings, the U.S. air and sea operations are considered routine and completely legal by international law. “There’s nothing out of the ordinary about it, nor about our ship sailing through there,” Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters outside the Pentagon. “I’ve noticed that other nations have also incurred certain diplomatic wrath out of Beijing for sailing their ships through. It’s international waters, folks.” Tensions between the U.S. and China continue to escalate as a result of the trade war, and sanctions on some Chinese companies. Recently, the Chinese government rejected the U.S. Navy’s request for the USS Wasp to visit the Hong Kong port. Additionally, last week President Trump accused China of trying to interfere in the 2018 elections. “We’re sorting out, obviously, a period with some tension there, trade tension and all, so we’ll get to the bottom of it,” Mattis said last week. “But I don’t think that we’re seeing a fundamental shift in anything. We’re just going through one of those periodic points where we’ve got to learn to manage our differences.”

US subs would be sitting ducks for new Chinese 'Death Star' laser satellite that will be able spot them 1,600ft below the surface

Lasers may be so powerful they will make the sea 'more or less transparent'

The artificial laser beam could be one billion times brighter than he sun

Some experts say this type of deep-sea surveillance is 'mission impossible'

By Phoebe Weston For Mailonline Published: 05:59 EDT, 1 October 2018 | Updated: 12:05 EDT, 1 October 2018

China's new spy satellite 'Project Guanlan' could use lasers to spot submarines up to 1,600ft (500m) below the ocean's surface. These lasers will be so powerful they will make the upper layer of the sea 'more or less transparent', according to scientists involved in the project. Researchers claim these artificial laser beams could be one billion times brighter than the sun. However, some experts say this type of deep-sea surveillance is 'mission impossible' as lasers are fundamentally unable to penetrate that deep. Project Guanlan, which means 'watching the big waves' was launched in May at the Pilot National Laboratory in Qingdao in Shandong, writes South China Morning Post. Its components are being developed by more than 20 universities across the country. For more than half a century naval researchers have been attempting to create a laser using Lidar (a portmanteau of 'light and 'radar.'). In theory when a laser hits an object - such as a submarine - pulses will bounce back and be picked up by sensors, which will be able to determine its shape. According to researchers, this high-powered laser beam is so powerful it would be able to scan an area as wide as 62 miles (100km) on land. It will also be used alongside microwave radar which will scan the surface of the water and identify surface movement. This could be an indication that a submarine is lurking below. Lidar uses ultraviolet, visible, or near infrared light to image objects. It can be used with a wide range of targets, including non-metallic objects, rocks, rain, chemical compounds, aerosols, clouds and even single molecules. However, it is negatively affected by fog, murky water and marine life. It also works less well in water as light scatters when it hits the surface. Researchers say the aim of the project is to strengthen Chinese surveillance. Song Xiaoquan, who is involved in the project, said it will make the upper layers of the ocean 'more or less transparent'. He said it 'will change almost everything'. Dr Xuaiquan said he did not know when the satellite would be ready. However, not everyone is convinced and some say it is 'impossible' to use the technology to look 1,600ft below the ocean's surface. 'They [project researchers] won't be able to break through the darkness guarded by Mother Nature – unless of course they are Tom Cruise, armed with some secret weapons,' one anonymous researcher from the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences told SCMP. WHAT IS LIDAR TECHNOLOGY AND HOW DOES IT WORK? Lidar is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by shooting a laser at a target and analysing the light that is reflected back. The technology was developed in the early 1960s and uses laser imaging with radar technology that can calculate distances. It was first used in meteorology to measure clouds by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The term lidar is a portmanteau of 'light and 'radar.' Lidar uses ultraviolet, visible, or near infrared light to image objects and can be used with a wide range of targets, including non-metallic objects, rocks, rain, chemical compounds, aerosols, clouds and even single molecules. A narrow laser beam can be used to map physical features with very high resolution. This new technique allowed researchers to map outlines of what they describe as dozens of newly discovered Maya cities hidden under thick jungle foliage centuries after they were abandoned by their original inhabitants. Aircraft with a LiDAR scanner produced three-dimensional maps of the surface by using light in the form of pulsed laser linked to a GPS system. The technology helped researchers discover sites much faster than using traditional archaeological methods.

'Insurmountable Chaos' Can Begin Like This: 'Just One Cough And You Can Have A Catastrophic Chain Of Transmission'

- 1918 'Mother Of All Pandemics' Had One Doctor Say: 'Civilization Could Have Disappeared Within A Few More Weeks'

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die  October 1, 2018

According to this new story over at City Lab, the Spanish flu outbreak of 1918 was 'the mother of all pandemics' that swept across America and the world in three waves, the first hitting New York city during the spring when residents and doctors thought it was only another round of seasonal flu. While summer arrived with very few casualties, leaving doctors and residents there forgetting all about the spring outbreak, by the time the 2nd wave arrived in September, a process had begun that would leave between 50 and 100 million around the world dead, with October of 1918 one of the deadliest months in the history of our planet. As their story reported, September 15th of 1918 marked a frightening turning point after NY city reported their first death from Spanish flu, one of more than 33,000 to eventually die from it in the city, and their story also pointed out why New York had become the perfect environment for such a deadly flu to carry out its wrath: "In the densely packed metropolis with 5 million people—then the largest population of any city—large families crowded inside small homes, and children and workers crammed inside schools, workshops, and into the subway." And while New York, America and the entire world are much more populated in 2018 than they were in 1918, and much more closely linked with millions of people traveling on airlines between cities and countries every day, the speed at which the virus killed was summed up perfectly by one Victor Vaughan, a doctor within the US Army, who made the following dire prediction according to John Barry, author of the book "The Great Influenza": “Civilization could have disappeared within a few more weeks.” In this new story over at USA Today that Steve Quayle linked to on his website Sunday morning, they report upon the end of September being the anniversary of the 1918 Spanish flu which killed more than twice the amount of people around the world in 24 months than died in 4+ years of World War 1, while warning that everyone agrees such a deadly outbreak will surely one day happen again. Reporting that in the month of October of 1918 alone, an unthinkable 100,000 Americans died, many of them young and healthy adults in the prime of their lives, the first sentence of the USA Today story held back no punches: "One hundred years ago, death came with astonishing speed and horrifying agony." As we had reported on ANP back on September 7th, according to one doctor who treated patients during the sudden pandemic outbreak, "it killed violently, and struck down the most healthy people suddenly, as if they had been shot". And as we also reported within that story, back in 2005, the US government published the entire genome of the 1918 Spanish flu online. From that story: All the way back on September 7th of 2005, the NY Times published a story titled simply "Recipe For Destruction" within which the authors began: AFTER a decade of painstaking research, federal and university scientists have reconstructed the 1918 influenza virus that killed 50 million people worldwide (ANP: Current estimates are that up to 100 million died). Like the flu viruses (then in 2005) raising alarm bells in Asia, the 1918 virus was a bird flu that jumped directly to humans, the scientists reported. To shed light on how the virus evolved, the United States Department of Health and Human Services published the full genome of the 1918 influenza virus on the Internet in the GenBank database. With the story authors warning then how extremely foolish it was for the US government to publish the genome online as they essentially permitted the design for a weapon of mass destruction to be published for anyone to see and use, their story then went on to explain why doing so could lead straight to catastrophe with labs around the world having the ability to culture it.: No responsible scientist would advocate publishing precise designs for an atomic bomb, and in two ways revealing the sequence for the flu virus is even more dangerous. First, it would be easier to create and release this highly destructive virus from the genetic data than it would be to build and detonate an atomic bomb given only its design, as you don't need rare raw materials like plutonium or enriched uranium. Synthesizing the virus from scratch would be difficult, but far from impossible. An easier approach would be to modify a conventional flu virus with the eight unique and now published genes of the 1918 killer virus. Second, release of the virus would be far worse than an atomic bomb. Analyses have shown that the detonation of an atomic bomb in an American city could kill as many as one million people. Release of a highly communicable and deadly biological virus could kill tens of millions, with some estimates in the hundreds of millions. A Science staff writer, Jocelyn Kaiser, said, "Both the authors and Science's editors acknowledge concerns that terrorists could, in theory, use the information to reconstruct the 1918 flu virus." And yet the journal required that the full genome sequence be made available on the GenBank database as a condition for publishing the paper. So in this day and age of CRISPR gene editing technology as close by as an Amazon delivery and terrorists announcing they'd like to weaponize a killer virus to cause maximum deaths across the planet, was it really wise to publish that genome online for absolutely anybody to potentially get a hold of? As we see in the graphic above, the 1918 Spanish flu really kicked off in the US and around the world during the first week of October, spiking to catastrophic death numbers by the end of October before rapidly declining almost as quickly as the casualty numbers began spiking. While according to the CDC, peak flu months are between December and March here in the US, Fortune reports that the US Food and Drug Administration has just announced that the 2018-2019 'flu season' has officially begun with their story warning that last year's flu killed 80,000 people, the highest influenza death toll in 40 years, leaving many questioning just how effective the flu shot really is. And while we'll avoid the flu shot as if it were the plague and instead will continue to keep ourselves healthy through natural means, using raw, chopped garlic as our go-to with it being a kill-all antibiotic, antiviral, antiparasitic, antibacterial and anti-fungal, we're not surprised that the vaccine vampires are once again pushing the flu shot with 'flu season' having begun despite the CDC admitting some who died from the flu in 2017 had gotten the flu shot, anyways. The following critically important excerpt from this 2010 Natural News story is information that every American should know, especially in this day and age of antibiotic resistance. This could save lives. Too often when people are sick, they just don't know what to do. More and more people are starting to distrust doctors and their drugs, but in a time of illness or infection they're unsure where to turn. Unfortunately, this uncertainty leads many people to doctors' offices for drugs that ultimately do more harm than good. So, here's some simple advice: if you need something that functions like an antibiotic, turn to garlic instead. Garlic is a powerful, natural antibiotic - and it doesn't kill off our healthy bacteria like drug antibiotics do. Unlike chemical antibiotics, garlic is also an effective antiviral and antifungal - and taking just a few cloves of garlic each day can really speed infections away. In one small trial, seven AIDS patients all had normal T-cell activity after three months of taking the equivalent of two or four garlic cloves each day - and T-cell activity is a key indicator of the AIDS infection. While AIDS may not be your infliction, as one of the most dreaded conditions around, it's helpful to use it to demonstrate the powerful effects of garlic. The patients also showed improvement with other problems like chronic diarrhea, candida overgrowth, genital herpes and a chronic sinus infection. Garlic has also been found to be helpful for conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, allergies, infections, toothaches, cancer, impotence, colds, heart disease, MRSA, and high cholesterol. And a one month supply is a few bucks at your local organic market. The fact that garlic is able to help with so many seemingly unrelated problems also demonstrates how connected different diseases are. The medical establishment likes to isolate diseases and target each with different drugs - just because they produce different symptoms and occur in different areas of the body. But the root causes of diseases that can appear very different are often the same. It's all far more intertwined than you might think. (ANP: This next excerpt is EXTREMELY important!!!) For garlic to be effective as a healing agent and general antibiotic, it needs to be raw. It should also be crushed and exposed to air for ten minutes before it's consumed to fully activate its key germ-killing compound. And don't worry; raw garlic doesn't have to taste awful. A simple recipe is to juice four cloves of garlic, two tomatoes, and a lemon to make a delicious antibacterial and antiviral drink. If you don't have a juicer, simply toss the ingredients into a blender and make a tomato and garlic soup. To either, just add some sea salt; it'll be delicious. If you have an infection, you can enjoy several of these drinks or soups each day to battle it away without the use of chemical antibiotics that are known to destroy our protective healthy bacteria - often in one fell swoop. While the exact location of where the outbreak began in 1918 has never been officially determined, historians agree that it was largely spread across the planet due to World War 1 and quite literally millions of soldiers traveling from place to place. As CBC recently reported in a story title appropriately beginning with "Insurmountable Chaos", 2 soldiers stopping in Winnipeg, Canada in 1918 eventually led to the deaths of more than 1,200 there from the Spanish flu and due to the sudden deadly onslaught, the medical community was powerless to do anything about it. Causing serious social and economic devastation, the lessons of the 1918 flu pandemic can be valuable learning experiences for all of us in 2018, whether or not the much talked about 'disease X' arrives or not. As the Sun reported back on September 21st, the next global pandemic could be much deadlier than the Spanish flu with death toll estimates as high as 400 million or more worldwide. And as we see detailed below and within the first video at the bottom of this story, the sudden arrival of the Spanish flu quite literally led to the end of life as they knew it for millions of Americans and people across the planet as much travel was halted and public assemblies banned. As the Seattle Daily Times reported back in 1918, the deadly pandemic forced the shuttering of nearly all public gatherings across much of the country and while NY city was one of the few to keep schools open, what happened in 1918 is clear proof of how quickly life as we know it can come to a complete standstill should a deadly pandemic strike. Giving awakened Americans another reason to prepare ahead of time rather than being caught with the masses attempting to purchase food and other supplies at stores that will likely be shuttered should a pandemic begin, imagine 2018 America being slammed with the kind of virus that sickened a full 25% of the country and led to the drop in average life expectancy of Americans by 12 years in one year alone. With researchers now thinking about the collapse of society and how to prepare for it as Bloomberg Businessweek reports in this new story subtitled "How to Adapt to the End of the World" giving us another sign that indeed the 'elite' are prepping for something huge, preppers should all be in the position to wall ourselves off from the rest of society for at least a month to ride out the storm in that worst case scenario. Like in the movie "Contagion", as we hear in the 1st video below, a video which takes a historical look at the 1918 Spanish flu and a speculative look at what might happen should the hypothetical 'disease X' that the World Health Organization has been warning about suddenly breakout across the planet, all it takes is one cough to start a catastrophic chain of transmissions. And with the world now much more closely linked than it was in 1918, and a potential pandemic arriving on airplanes at any point in time should a worst-case scenario come about like it did 100 years ago, the USA Today reminds us that pandemics ignore national borders, social class, economic status, and even age, proving to us once again we have so much more in common with each other that unite us than differences that divide us in the eyes of time and history. The 2nd and final video below from the History Channel titled "After Armageddon" takes a look at what America might look like should that 'worst case scenario' come true and a pandemic break out across the country.

Everything You Need to Know About Those “Expiration Dates” on Your Food

By Meadow Clark

Have you ever wondered what the real expiration dates are for your pantry food? Have you ever wondered whether your food was safe to eat past the “expiration date?” Fear not. There is no more need to throw away perfectly good food over a little date stamp. The problem is – people are throwing canned or packaged goods away on a false perception that the date means expiration. In other words, they fear that the product could be spoiled or unsafe. More on that in a bit. I visited someone once who was chucking nearly a hundred cans and boxes of food – right into the garbage, no joke. This person really believed that all the food had expired and was unsafe to eat. As though the food had already “gone off.” I pleaded with the person that the food could go to someone hungry but they argued that a food bank would examine the dates and throw them away. If you see food banks throwing away expired cans – or even sealed packaged goods, please tell them that the USDA has recommended that people can still donate food that’s older than the stamped date. Even stores are allowed to sell food weeks and months beyond their “past” dates. (Source) So, anyway, I did what anyone would do when they were assured that safe food is about to be senselessly wasted – I gathered all the food in big black Hefty bags and walked out of there like a reverse Santa Claus scenario. We waste so much food. Americans waste an average of $2,000 worth of food each year in some form or another. (Though I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who wastes nearly $200 of food each month!) Another source says Americans waste one pound of food a day, and that it takes 30 million acres of cropland to produce that food. It’s not just average Americans who are involved with food waste, however. Much of our country’s food is wasted before it ever reaches our dinner tables. One of the ways food is wasted is right in the field. An estimated 20% of crops never make it off the field – they rot. You may have heard about “ugly produce.” That’s warped looking produce that never makes it to the grocery store even though it’s perfectly good to eat. Thankfully, there are finally grocery stores popping up devoted to selling the “ugly” produce so that it doesn’t go to waste. Can you believe the UN is pushing for people to eat crickets and maggots when we have all this perfectly good food that simply gets wasted? True story. The Stamped Dates on Foods Are Estimated Guesses for Freshness Did you know that expiration dates are only required by the FDA for infant formula? The USDA assures that manufacturers are providing dating as a way to help consumers decide food freshness and quality – it has nothing to do with product safety. Nada. Zip. Real expiration dates are rarely found on canned goods. It is only consumer perception that continues to drive a fear of eating food after its “past” date. The dates on canned goods are a suggestion for quality. After all, if there was no date on the can at all, it could be 100 years old by the time you eat it and you’d never know. All of that food that you have stashed away in your prepper pantry will most likely be delicious for a long time after the date you find stamped on the container. What do the following terms mean on your food? Here’s a quick guide to the dates you see stamped on your food. Best if Used By/Best Before: An indication of best flavor and/quality. Again, this is not a safety date.  Sell-By: This date is for the store. It tells the store how long to display the product for sale and it’s for inventory management. Still not a safety date.  Use-By: This date is the last date recommended to use the product while at peak quality. Not a safety date except when it is used on infant formula. Guaranteed Fresh: Just a date for the consumer to know when they should use up the product.  In nearly every case, you can continue using food – especially canned food – significantly past the date on the product since it has nothing to do with actual expiration. Some states require that milk and other perishables be sold before the expiration date. According to the Canned Food Alliance, …canned food (when kept at relatively stable temperatures) will remain at peak quality for at least two years after it’s been processed. They note that while food in cans “retains its safety and nutritional value well beyond two years,” its color and texture may change after that time. Many factors affect how long a food will stay edible in the can, but food kept at “moderate temperatures [75 degrees or below]” may last indefinitely. But others believe that canned food lasts much longer, perhaps only losing negligible amounts of nutrition over the years. After all, the idea of canned food in the first place is to be non-perishable. “Canned foods do not expire on a certain date. One cannot say that the canned food is good on one day and not good the next day. Canned foods are under a vacuum. The absence of oxygen helps to extend the shelf life of canned foods.” -Ron Giles, Quality Assurance Director of Goya Foods, Inc. The un-safest thing about canned goods whether they are before or after their best-by dates is the Bisphenol A (BPA) that is used to line that metal of the can as a barrier between the metal and food. Although the food industry claims BPA is for product safety, recent research is starting to show that BPA is a hormone disruptor that is linked to obesity. Here Are Some Real Food “Expiration” Times Remember, expiration typically means spoilage to people. But these dates only represent the best quality. The food and drink on this list may still be perfectly fine after the dates listed. However, this will let you know when to rotate the food in your pantry. This short list should serve as general “eat by” date. The times listed represent the length of time you can wait to eat something, past the printed date on the product.

Honey – Indefinite

Beans, dried – Indefinite

Peanut Butter – 1 year in pantry, if it’s natural then it only lasts 3 months in pantry and 6 months in fridge

Raw eggs in shell – 3 to 5 weeks

Coffee, ground – 3-5 months in pantry

Coffee, whole bean – 6-9 months in pantry

Coffee, any type, frozen – 1-3 years (whole bean lasts longer)

Milk, frozen – 3 months

Dairy Alternatives – 7 – 10 days after opening

Bottled Juice – 7 – 10 days after opening, in pantry – 3-9 months

Nut butters – 3 months (cashew) to 1 year (almond)

Pasta Sauce – 1-2 years in pantry, 7-10 days in fridge, opened

Cream sauces, commercially jarred – up to 12 months in pantry, 7-10 days opened in fridge

Pasta, dry packaged – 1-2 years

Olive oil – 2 years, still safe but taste and quality could be affected

Olives, jar – 1-2 years in pantry, 3-4 months opened, in fridge

Cookies – 4 – 6 months

Beer – 6 months – 9 months in pantry. 6 months – 2 years in fridge.

Homemade bread – 3 days on counter, best to store in freezer.

Ice Cream – Up to 3 months, 4 months for sherbert

High-Acid Canned Foods like tomatoes, canned juices, pickles etc – 12 – 18 months

Canned Foods – 2 – 5 years or more

Bottled water – the water itself doesn’t expire, but the bottle will break down within 2 years.

Cheese – I’ve known people to store cheese in their fridge for months at a time. Our grandparents’ generation simply cut off any mold from the surface and continued eating the cheese. But it will sharpen with age, so maybe it’s a good idea to buy mild and let it age in your fridge. General Rule – a lot of things last up to 2 years in a pantry, but liquids, sauces, and juices typically last only 7-10 days once they are opened and stored in a fridge. So saving that half-jar of pasta sauce for next month is not a good idea because you can’t see mold roots when they first begin. #1 Tip – Create a meal plan to use up leftover portions to use in a different meal for that same week. That way, you never have to spend time wondering if it’s still safe to eat. Obviously, if any cans are bloated, they need to be disposed of immediately since bloated cans are a distinctive sign of deadly botulism and other bacteria. Dents in cans may cause the barrier in the lining between the can and the food to break down, theoretically causing bacteria to grow. Try not to buy dented cans in the first place! Never Throw Away Good Food Again If you love the idea of frugally using up your foods – and doing it in style, then you’ll want to get acquainted with this site: Eat By Date Look up by food or by shelf-life and check here before you chuck your food. It shows you how long the food will last beyond the printed date. Also Read – The Truth About That Expiration Date on Your Vitamins and Medications Bottom Line… Friends don’t let friends throw away canned and packaged foods. It doesn’t belong in a garbage bin or a landfill because it can provide a truly hungry person with the calories they need to survive. If you see someone chucking perfectly good food – say something. Do you eat the food in your pantry after the date stamped on it? Have your experiences been good or bad? Let us know in the comments below.

The Democratic Party’s Unfolding Coup Against Trump Dramatically Parallels Hitler’s Rise to Power-Stunning and Undeniable!

Modestly, I recall some comments from some of our followers in which I have been asked if I have some kind of crystal ball. The answer is “of course not”. However, I do know my history and our country is traveling down a very familiar road. The parallels of how Hitler came to power, murdered the opposition and used a major false flag to consolidate power along with the establishment of state sponsored genocide, is present in today’s American political landscape. I may not have a crystal ball, but I do the play book of the globalists. They are following, almost to the letter, what the Nazis did to take over the German government over seven decades ago. And it makes sense when one considers the fact that DHS was created by the head of the East German Stasi, Marcus Wolfe. And the leader of the violent Democratic Party action groups (eg Antifa) is the creation of a former Nazi collaborator, George Soros. History Speaks Will America Listen? On September 27, 2018, I wrote the following: The GOP is afraid of its own shadow. They are afraid to investigate illegal alien voter fraud because of the backlash from the left. And these fears are well-founded. First, we witnessed Sarah Huckabee Sanders being refused service. Now, this leftist harassment has grown to the point where Senator Ted Cruz and his wife had to literally run from the threat of physical danger. Assassinations are next. Within four days, this observation culminated in the realization that we are ready to see an “open season” on conservatives, all conservatives. A Conversation with Mike Adams Mike Adams and myself had a lengthy conversation which turned into an interview which will be released soon. I want to highlight and isolate a small portion of our conversation. Ironically, Mike and myself were working on the same exact specific issue at the same exact time. I wrote a fictional account of a successful coup against President Trump. In the fictional account, Kavanaugh was assassinated and the Hodges family was hauled off to a FEMA camp when it came time to eliminate resistance to the new regime as it consolidated power. On the other hand, and on the same day, Mike Adams wrote about how assassination was going to be the centerpiece of short-term political change. Mike documented the doxxing of Republicans supporting Trump and the Kavanaugh nomination. Presumably, Rep. Maxine Waters released the home addresses of key conservative Republicans. And of course, Left wing Democratic Socialists, led by the modern-day Goebbels, George Soros, were advocating for the assassination of these public figures in social media, most notably on Twitter. And I might add, the social media tech giants were fine with the content and the threats were not met with censorship or any form of disapproval. The social tech giants are acting like the Nazis prior to Hitler’s takeover. They are tolerating threats from the left against conservative politicians and conservative talk show hosts. History has been down this road before. Please allow me to be clear. When Mike Adams mentioned doxxing, he is clearly referring to the creation of a kill list. The radical left is pursuing a political strategy that has occurred before and it fits hand in glove with the rise of the Nazi Party. Pleases allow me to quote a socialist version of history regarding how Hitler came to power and intersperse the socialist version of history with contemporary parallels. The comparisons are both stunning and frightening. From the quarterly review Journal named International Socialism: Brutal attacks and murders of well-known anti-fascist activists followed immediately after Hitler’s ascension to power.  Editor’s Note: The Deep State dominance, the shadow government if you will, is the equivalent of Hitler rising to power. Where does one think the former Nazi collaborator, George Soros, got the idea for the creation of the violent radical group we call Antifa? Ms-13 are the assassins of choice for the drug cartels. Why did Obama and his DHS allow MS-13 to gain a foothold in America? Draw your own conclusion, but the answer is obvious to anyone who has eyes to see. This validates both Mike Adams and the CSS’ position that political assassinations are very close. Hit most quickly and most heavily by Nazi repression was the Communist Party (KPD). Nazi thugs stormed and closed the KPD headquarters, the Karl Liebknecht House, on 23 February 1933 and banned their newspaper, Die Rote Fahne, a few days later. Editor’s note: In this parallel, the 1930’s Communists are the equivalent today’s conservative Republicans in that they are targeted by the left. Please note how the Nazis used censorship and how it looks like and smells like what we are witnessing today where most people get their news which is the now heavily censored Internet. In this analogy, the Communists became the endangered species of the 1930’s while today, conservative Republicans and talk show hosts fill that role. I have no doubt, that radical left is coming for us. The burning of parliament on 27 February was used to justify yet another wave of terror against the left. Editor’s Note: Also note how a major false flag event was used to justify the solidification of political power. This lies in our immediate future should the Democratic Socialist Party seize control of the House and/or the Senate in the upcoming midterm elections. A major false flag will be perpetrated and conservative forces, just like the 1930’s Communists will be blamed. Thus, will begin the greatest and most murderous purge in American history. Over 1,500 Communists were arrested that night in Berlin alone. Unable to fit so many political prisoners into the existing prison system, the Nazis erected the first concentration camps during this wave of repression. Editor’s note: Please note that the original use of the concentration camps was to kill off the political opposition, not to murder the Jews. That came later. And some wonder why the CSS dedicates so much attention to the nature of FEMA camps. Please take note of how history demonstrates how the new Nazi regime sought to consolidate power by the construction of the 1930’s version of FEMA camps. This is exactly how the left will bring FEMA camps into existence. On the CSS, I used to interview Larry Grathwohl about Bill Ayers and his Communist organization the Weatherman Underground. My listeners learned that the Weatherman Underground and Obama benefactor, Bill Ayers, told the late FBI Special informant, Larry Grathwohl who had penetrated the Weatherman, that when they won control of the government, “the Weatherman would have to imprison 50 million Americans and kill over 25 million of them”. By the way, Bill Ayers is now working on the Calexit plan for California to exit the Union as a protectorate of the United Nations. Of course, the purpose of doxxing and subsequent assassination is to intimidate the political opposition and to create huge gaps in opposition leadership that can be exploited. Mike Adams and myself feel that this will culminate in a purge of conservatives in leadership positions. In fact, in the past week, both Maxine Waters and California Governor, Jerry Brown, made assassination threats against President Trump. Conclusion  I am certain that many are wondering what kind of false flag event will parallel the Reichstag fire? I will soon be releasing an interview I did with Paul Martin in which a clearer picture of the intent of the left is coming into view with regard to their choice of a false flag event(s). Both Mike Adams and I agree that if the left can win the midterms, the need for violence is lessened. However, if Kavanaugh is confirmed and the left loses the midterm elections, it will be open season on America. And if the Democratic Socialists gain control of our government, the body count of Civil War II will far exceed Civil War I.

The Circus At The End Of The World: Things Are About To Get Down And Dirty In The USA

- If Democrats Win House/Senate In Midterms, It Will Be Game Over For President Trump And Our Late, Great Republic

By William B Stoecker - All News Pipeline October 1, 2018

Punctuated by the high-pitched shrieking of the Twisted Sisters of Perpetual Outrage, the Kavanaugh hearings soon (and predictably) degenerated into a pathetic farce not worthy of the great nation we once were. A Demoncrap woman represented by a Demoncrap lawyer who has been photographed with the Witch Hillary accused Kavanaugh of groping her at a party, where she clearly remembers having precisely one beer but does not remember when or where the party was, how she got there, or how she got home. The witnesses she claimed were present all say they were not. She delayed the hearings because, she said, she was afraid to fly to them from the West Coast, but it turns out she flies a lot, with no apparent fear, and, furthermore, she was already on the East Coast when the hearings began. Other “victims” of Kavanaugh have come forward with ever more bizarre and dubious stories…expect the trend to continue. The Demoncraps are on a roll and in their element (lies and slander and rampant hypocrisy). The hearings have been delayed yet again by the betrayal by Jeff Flake, who has called for the seventh FBI investigation of Kavanaugh by the FBI. Seven? Really? And of course, we all trust the corrupt and politicized FBI, don’t we? Except for a rare display of what appeared to be sincere outrage by (of all people) Lindsey Graham, the Republicans have played their usual game of assuming the position when the Demoncraps attack. And attack they do, regarding politics as war while the timid and unprincipled Republicans apparently see it as some gentlemanly game. These hearings may drag on until the mid-terms, when the Demoncraps may win the House and/or the Senate. Then it will be game over for Kavanaugh, Trump, and our late, great Republic. But maybe the game was over years ago. Kavanaugh is an establishment player, not a patriot, a Yale graduate (and a Bonesman?) who helped cover up the murder of Vince Foster. As for the Donald, he continues to be just about to build the wall (while signing a spending bill that financed Planned “Parenthood” and not a wall) and he will fire Little Jeff and Rosenslime any day now, and release the documents proving, among other things, that the FISA warrant was obtained illegally. But he has already back pedaled from his promise to declassify the documents, and has assured Little Jeff that he won’t fire him until after the mid-terms, if ever. For a while it looked as if Rosenslime was about to be fired or forced to resign, but that, too, was an illusion. The FBI and DOJ will never be cleaned out and the Witch Hillary, Hussein Obama, and the other arch criminals will never see justice…at least not in this world. And the endless wars continue, and we continue to tweak the nose of the Bear, with a nuclear arsenal bigger than our own. That could end very, very badly. I suppose that if Lindsey Graham can, for once in his life, generate real moral outrage, perhaps Trump can and will see the light and set America back on course. We’d all like to believe that…but it is becoming very hard to believe anything anymore. Of late, some conservative pundits who should have known better have been assuring us that Trump is playing a Machiavellian game against the Deep State operatives, and that he is just giving Rosenslime and company enough rope to hang themselves, at which point “military tribunals” will sentence them all to death, including the Witch Hillary and Hussein Obama. Yes, and we’ll all be raptured into Heaven and the archangel Michael will behead all the bad guys with his mighty sword, and Santa Claus will bring me a new assault rifle that I won’t need anymore. I would remind everyone that the military, much as we all admire the martial virtues, are part of the Deep State, and even as far back as WWII, General George Marshall almost certainly helped set us up for Pearl Harbor, and Marshall and General Stilwell orchestrated the betrayal of China to the communists. Much as I would like to be proven wrong, there will be no military tribunals, and if Trump has not acted boldly and decisively by now he isn’t going to. Little Jeff and Rosenslime should have been fired over a year ago, just for openers. The Witch should have been indicted by now. It didn’t happen. So now, with the Demoncraps foaming at the mouth like the hyenas they are smelling blood, we are headed to the mid-terms. You might think that the disgusting circus of the Kavanaugh hearings would cost the left a good deal of their support, or the antics of the repulsive Black racist, Maxine Waters (who has apparently “doxxed” some Republican senators). And why would any White man (or even any White woman) continue to support a party that openly despises the entire White race? For the left have abandoned any moral standards they might once have had, and are, literally, insane. They have entered the terminal phase of their madness. The Demoncrap leaders have repeatedly and openly admitted their contempt for the majority of the people, referring to us as “bitter clingers,” a “basket of deplorables,”and the like, with Grinning Joe Biden recently saying that we are all pretty much the scum of the Earth. But the well of human stupidity, while not bottomless, is very deep, so they will never lack for supporters. And it is impossible to have free and fair elections when one side (the left) has most of the money, controls most of the media, and controls the indoc centers formerly known as “schools” and “universities.” And they have imported tens of millions of Demoncrap voters from countries that hate America as much as our own leftists hate America. When all else fails they resort to blatant vote fraud, which is why they oppose “racist” voter ID. So they may win control of at least one branch of Congress and block any attempts by Trump to do the right thing (assuming that he knows or cares what the right thing is). But meanwhile, underneath the surface of human consciousness, something else is happening, and the leftists will be the last people to realize it. Over the years I have watched as mainstream Republican conservatives like Ann Coulter and Joseph Farah have become disillusioned with the RINOs and have admitted (without using the dreaded C word…conspiracy) that a small elite control both parties at the top, and this group is international and dedicated to totalitarian rule. A few years ago on Fox, Lew Dobbs spoke of the “elites,” and the context of his remarks made it clear that he was speaking of the group the Birchers call the “insiders.” More recently, Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson, while avoiding the C word, have spoken openly of the NWO conspiracy and its control of most of the media and academia. And Carlson and others now speak openly of the “Deep State.” A few years ago only we conspiracy researchers warned about what we then called the “Shadow Government.” Greater and greater numbers of people, perhaps by now exceeding a third of the US population, are fully aware of what is at stake and who is behind most of the evil in the world. And as people’s awareness increases, so does their anger. People like Dan Bongino on Fox used to make an effort to be polite to the yapping leftists who appear regularly even on Carlson’s show, but now he makes no attempt to hide his contempt for the enemy. The left has counted on our remaining non-violent and playing their game by their rules. But we are about to begin playing by the real set of rules of self defense. If one of Maxine Waters’ zombies gets in your face and attempts to strike you, self defense allows you to punch him (or her) first. If one of them draws a knife and threatens to stab you, self defense in most of America allows you to draw a gun to protect yourself and your family. If events continue along the same path they're on, things are about to get down and dirty in the USA.

Flash flooding and heavy rain to lash Southwest U.S. as Hurricane Rosa heads north after battering Mexico

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Rosa should still be at tropical storm force when it hits the Baja California Peninsula Monday

It will bring 2 to 4 inches of rain to the Mogollon Rim of Arizona and 1 to 2 inches to the rest of the desert Southwest, Central Rockies and Great Basin

Rosa still had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph early Sunday, and classed as a Category 1 Hurricane

By Associated Press and Hannah Parry For Dailymail.com Published: 08:20 EDT, 30 September 2018 | Updated: 21:42 EDT, 30 September 2018

Hurricane Rosa is heading north from Mexico, bringing widespread heavy rain, flash flooding to southwest US. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Rosa should still be at tropical storm force when it hits the Baja California Peninsula Monday with flooding rains. It's then expected to move quickly northwestward as it weakens, bringing 2 to 4 inches of rain to the Mogollon Rim of Arizona and 1 to 2 inches to the rest of the desert Southwest, Central Rockies and Great Basin. Some isolated areas might be more. Rosa still had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph early Sunday, and classed as a Category 1 Hurricane, and it was centered about 355 miles southwest of Punta Eugenia in Mexico. It was heading north at 12 mph. Rosa will also bring up to 10 inches of rain in parts of Mexico on Monday. The rainfall in southern Nevada and Arizona and across the Southwest could spark dangerous flash flooding, or even landslides in the desert, experts warned ABC News. Forecasters are warning against anyone stepping out in the desert on foot during the tropical rainstorm as sandy, dusty canyons could very quickly become raging rivers or dust storms. In Southern California, half an inch rainfalls - the first of the season - are expected which could cause minor debris flows and slick roadways. The rainfall is expected to hit Arizona late Sunday and early Monday, before the rain becomes more widespread into the middle of the week. Meanwhile, much of the central and eastern U.S. is expected to experience a warm October in the 80s, with New York expected to reach 80 degrees on Tuesday.

Worldwide volcanic eruption updates: Krakatau (Indonesia), Manam (Papua New Guinea), Piton de la Fournaise (Reunion Island) Fuego and Pacaya (Guatemala), Karymsky (Russia)

By Strange Sounds - Oct 1, 2018

Besides the devastating M7.5 earthquake and tsunami in Palu, Indonesia, many volcanoes are being caught erupting around the globe. Here the latest volcanic eruptions:

Manam volcano eruption – September 30, 2018 An eruption was recorded on the island of Manam in Papua New Guinea on September 30, 2018 as shown by the VAAC Darwin Volcanic ash advisory of October 1, the orange aviation code, and thermal anomalies of 6,326 and 7,135 MW reported by the Mirova satellite: VA ADVISORY DTG: 20181001 / 0330Z VAAC: DARWIN VOLCANO: MANAM 251020

PSN: S0405 E14502 AREA: PAPUA NEW GUINEA SUMMIT ELEV: 1807M ADVISORY NR: 2018/28 SOURCE INFO: HIMAWARI-8 AVIATION COLOR CODE: ORANGE ERUPTION DETAILS: CONTINUOUS WEAK VA EMISSION TO FL090 EXT WNW AND FL140 EXT SW OBS VA DTG: 01 / 0330Z Here a long video about the eruption of Manam volcano that has devastated the island a few months ago: Eruption of Piton de la Fournaise, Reunion Island There is a ongoing eruption at Piton de la Fournaise since September 15, 2018. Apart from a slight increase on September 30th early afternoon, the intensity of the volcanic tremor (indicator of eruptive intensity at the surface) has remained relatively stable over the last 24 hours. The surface flows, estimated from satellite data, was less than 2 m3/s over the last 24 hours. However, since most of the eruptive activity currently occurs in lava tunnels, detection of anomalous hot spots are increasingly difficult and therefore these flow values ​​are most probably underrated. Moreover, the cloudy weather hinders the acquisition of satellite data. Now just for your eyes, here a video captured by Thierry Sluys of the eruptions on September 15th and 18th. Awesome Meanwhile, Karymsky volcano exploded sending an ash plume more than 3,000 meters asl., before dispersing over 116km in the ESE direction. Moderate eruptive activity continues, and ash explosions can still occur and affect low-level flights. Fuego and Pacaya volcanoes erupt in Guatemala The explosive activity of the Fuego volcano increased during the evening of September 29, 2018, with 10 to 15 hourly explosions ejecting ash plumes at 4,400 – 4,700 meters asl. Tremors and degassing blasts sounding like aircraft turbine sounds were reported on the southwestern flank of the volcanic peak. Ash falls are reported on San Pedro Yepocapa, Finca Palo Verde, Morelia, and Panimache. A possibility of lava flows and of a new eruption is possible in the next hours. Meanwhile, the strombolian activity continues at Pacaya volcano, with occasional explosions 50 meters above the crater and lava flows – between 300 and 700 meters – towards Cerro Chino. Krakatau eruption in Indonesia To finish this volcanic update, here a powerful video showing the intense volcanic activity of Krakatau on September 15, 2018: Take care, be ready and get prepared! The next catastrophic event could hit right were you live.

This is the astonishing moment a building 'floated' along a river of mud after the devastating Indonesian earthquake liquefied the ground. Hundreds are feared trapped in mud and 1,700 homes were 'swallowed up' on the island of Sulawesi after tremors turned water-filled soil in to mush in a phenomenon known as liquefaction. Terrifying footage, filmed from the metal roof of a house, shows large buildings and electricity pylons moving past after being ripped from their foundations. The clip emerged as the death toll from the disaster climbed to more than 1,200 and officials prepared a mass grave with space for hundreds of victims of Friday's earthquake and tsunami. Workers were seen hauling body bags into the 330ft-long tomb in Palu. Meanwhile, reports have emerged of looters raiding collapsed shopping malls and hundreds of convicts escaping the ruins of their prison. In the district of Sigi, 34 children were found dead under tsunami debris. They were all attending a Christian camp, Indonesian Red Cross spokeswoman Aulia Arriani said. A 38-year-old man was pulled out alive from beneath a collapsed building three days after the 7.5 earthquake and 500mph tsunami devastated the city of Palu. Indonesian TV stations showed video from the National Search and Rescue Agency of its workers freeing Sapri Nusin from the rubble of a destroyed finance building. He was conscious and talking to his rescuers as they worked by flashlight. Footage shows the astonishing moment a building 'floated' along a river of mud after the deadly Indonesian earthquake and tsunami liquefied the ground Hundreds are feared trapped in mud and 1,700 homes were 'swallowed up' on the island of Sulawesi after tremors turned water-filled soil in to mush in a phenomenon known as liquefaction. The terrifying clip emerged as the death toll from the disaster climbed to more than 1,200 and officials prepared a mass grave with space for hundreds of earthquake and tsunami victims Officials could be seen hauling body bags into the 330ft-long tomb in Palu after the city on the island of Sulawesi was devastated by 20ft waves and tremors so powerful they turned the ground to liquid In response, President Joko Widodo opened the door to the dozens of international aid agencies and NGOs who are lined up to provide life-saving assistance. Britain will send a team of five aid workers to Sulawesi along with £2 million of support to help the thousands left homeless, the Department for International Development (DfID) confirmed. This morning, Local Army Commander Tiopan Aritonang said 545 bodies would be brought from one hospital alone to a mass grave in Palu. The grave will be 33 ft by 330 ft and can be enlarged if needed, said Willem Rampangilei, chief of Indonesia's National Disaster Mitigation Agency. 'This must be done as soon as possible for health and religious reasons,' he said. Indonesia is majority Muslim, and religious custom calls for burials soon after death, typically within one day. Local military spokesman Mohammad Thorir said the area adjacent to a public cemetery can hold 1,000 bodies. All of the victims, coming from local hospitals, have been photographed to help families locate where their relatives were buried. Video footage showed residents walking from body bag to body bag, opening the top to check to see if they could identify faces. Around midday, teams of workers, their mouths covered by masks, carried 18 bagged bodies and laid them in a trench at Poboya - in the hills above Palu. Mechanical earth-movers waited to push soil on top of the bodies. More burials are expected to follow with authorities desperate to stave off any disease outbreak caused by decomposing bodies. Military and commercial aircraft were delivering some aid and supplies to the region. But there was a desperate need for heavy equipment to reach possible survivors buried in collapsed buildings, including an eight-story hotel in Palu where voices were heard in the rubble. A 25-year-old woman was found alive Sunday evening in the ruins of the Roa-Roa Hotel, according to the National Search and Rescue Agency, which released photos of the her lying on a stretcher covered in a blanket. A number of other survivors were still being found and a few were being pulled from buildings in different locations. Desperate survivors turned to looting shops for basics like food, water and fuel as police looked on, unwilling or unable to intervene. 'There has been no aid, we need to eat. We don't have any other choice, we must get food,' one man in Palu told AFP as he filled a basket with goods from a nearby store. Television pictures showed scores of residents shouting 'we're hungry, we need food' as soldiers distributed rations from a truck in one neighbourhood, while footage from elsewhere showed people making off with clothes and other items from a wrecked mall. Local television said around 3,000 residents had flocked to the Palu airport trying to get out. Footage showed some people screaming in anger because they were not able to board departing military aircraft. 'We have not eaten for three days!' one woman yelled. 'We just want to be safe!' Meanwhile, some 1,200 Indonesian convicts are on the run from three different detention facilities in devastated Sulawesi. One prison in Palu - built to hold just 120 people - saw most of its 581 inmates storm past guards and escape to freedom through walls collapsed by the massive 7.5 magnitude shake. 'Things were initially fine...but not long after the quake, water erupted from under the prison yard causing prisoners to panic and then run onto the road,' said Ministry of Justice official Sri Puguh Utami, adding that the water was not from the tsunami. 'I'm sure they escaped because they feared they would be affected by the earthquake. 'This is for sure a matter of life and death for the prisoners,' she added. Inmates had fled from another overcapacity facility in Palu by breaking down its main door and another in Donggala, an area also hit by the disaster. The Donggala jail was set on fire and all 343 inmates were now on the run, Utami said. The arson was thought to have been sparked by angry detainees demanding to see their families. 'They panicked after learning that Donggala was badly hit by the earthquake,' Utami said. 'Prison officials did negotiate with prisoners about allowing them to go to check on their families. 'But some prisoners were apparently not patient enough and committed the arson.' Some of the convicts were jailed for corruption and narcotics offences, she said. Five people convicted of terror-related crimes had been moved from the prison just days before the disaster. Just over 100 prisoners at the two facilities in Palu were still in jail, but overstretched guards were struggling to keep them fed. 'The prison no longer had enough food,' Utami said. 'Officials then tried to buy supplies from stores around the prison that were still open.' Nearly all of those confirmed dead in the disaster are from Palu. The regencies of Donggala, Sigi and Parigi Moutong - with a combined population of 1.2 million - had yet to be fully assessed. 'The death toll is believed to be still increasing, since many bodies were still under the wreckage, while many have not been reached,' said disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. The cries from beneath the Roa-Roa Hotel, which appeared to have toppled over with its walls splintered like pickup sticks, went silent by Sunday afternoon. Officials had estimated about 50 people could be inside. 'We are trying our best. Time is so important here to save people,' said Muhammad Syaugi, head of the national search and rescue team. 'Heavy equipment is on the way.' Metro TV showed about a dozen rescuers in orange jumpsuits climbing over debris with a stretcher carrying the body of a victim from the modest business hotel. Other rescuers worked to try to free a 15-year-old girl trapped under concrete in her house in Palu after it collapsed on her family during the earthquake. Unable to move her legs under the rubble, Nurul Istikharah was trapped beside her dead mother and niece. Rescuers also tried to control water from a leaking pipe, fearing she would drown. Istikharah was unconscious during part of the effort to free her, but rescuers kept talking to her to try to keep her awake. Others offered her food and water. Indonesian President Joko 'Jokowi' Widodo authorized for the country to accept international help for the disaster, Thomas Lembong, chair of Indonesia's Investment Coordinating Board, tweeted Monday morning. It wasn't immediately clear what type of help was being authorized, but the stricken areas needed medical supplies, food and water. 'We will send food today, as much as possible with several aircraft,' he told journalists in the capital, Jakarta, adding a supply of fuel was also set to arrive. It was the latest natural disaster to hit Indonesia, which is frequently struck by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis because of its location on the 'Ring of Fire,' an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin. In December 2004, a massive magnitude 9.1 earthquake off Sumatra island in western Indonesia triggered a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in a dozen countries. More recently, a powerful quake on the island of Lombok killed 505 people in August. In Donggala, the site closest to the earthquake's epicenter, aerial footage on Metro TV showed the sugary blond sands of beaches swept out to sea, along with some buildings. Some buildings in the town were severely damaged, with plywood walls shredded and chunks of concrete scattered on the pavement. Much of the damage, however, appeared limited to the waterfront. Palu, which has more than 380,000 people, was strewn with debris from the earthquake and tsunami. A heavily damaged mosque was half submerged and a shopping mall was reduced to a crumpled hulk. A large bridge with yellow arches had collapsed. The city is built around a narrow bay that apparently magnified the force of the tsunami as the waves raced into the tight inlet. Nugroho, the disaster agency spokesman, said waves were reported as high as 6 meters (20 feet) in some places. In one devastated area in Palu, residents said dozens of people could still be buried in their homes. The terrifying moment families run for their lives in Indonesia as tsunami and quakes turn the ground to LIQUID The surface of tsunami-destroyed Palu City in Indonesia has turned to mush, with the death toll from Friday's natural disaster likely to climb even higher from 1,203. Houses and buildings have moved, sunken or collapsed as a result of the 'liquefaction' of the ground and there are more people still suspected to be trapped. This natural phenomenon occurs during an earthquake when tremors shake normally compact layers of sand and soil into a deadly 'soup' that can create an effect similar to a sink hole. In a video shared to Twitter on Sunday, families stood watch as buildings around them crumbled and the earth slid beneath their feet. Houses and buildings have moved, sunken or collapsed as a result of the 'liquefaction' of the ground and there are more people still suspected to be trapped The short clip was uploaded by Indonesian official Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, who wrote, 'houses moved and collapsed were caused by the liquefaction process and collapsed due to the 7.4 SR earthquake in Palu City. 'The ground surface moves and sinks so that all buildings are destroyed. The geological process is very terrible. It is estimated that victims are trapped in this area.' Loud rumbling and crashing could be heard in the footage as a distressed family, including a baby, fled from nearby crumbling buildings. The panicked group were forced to watched as a large shed-like structure fell to the ground before sliding across it towards them. There were scenes of chaos as people scurried to reach safe ground - an impossible task given the dangerous sinking mud. Fears have been mounting for the the fishing town of Donggala, which was closer to the epicentre of the quake, because rescuers have not been able to reach it. The town of Mamuju was also severely affected but currently impossible to access due to damaged roads and disrupted telecommunications. 'The ground rose up like a spine and suddenly fell. Many people were trapped and buried under collapsed houses. I could do nothing to help,' resident Nur Indah said, crying. 'In the evening, some of them turned on their cellphones just to give a sign that they were there. But the lights were off later and the next day.' With hundreds injured, earthquake-damaged hospitals were overwhelmed. Nugroho said 61 foreigners were in Palu at the time of the disaster. Most were accounted for, but one South Korean was believed to be trapped in the Roa-Roa Hotel, while three others from France and one from Malaysia were missing. Indonesia is a vast archipelago of more than 17,000 islands home to 260 million people. Roads and infrastructure are poor in many areas, making access difficult in the best of conditions. The disaster agency has said that essential aircraft can land at Palu's airport, though AirNav, which oversees aircraft navigation, said the runway was cracked and the control tower damaged. Many survivors have spent the last days desperately searching for loved ones while dealing with the trauma of the disaster. One survivor, Adi, was hugging his wife by the beach when the tsunami struck on Friday. He has no idea where she is now, or whether she is alive. 'When the wave came, I lost her,' he said. 'I was carried about 50 metres. I couldn't hold anything,' he said. Others have centred their search for loved ones around open-air morgues, where the dead lay in the baking sun - waiting to be claimed, waiting to be named. As dire as the situation in Palu is, it was at least clear. In outlying areas, the fate of thousands is still unknown. Questions are sure to be asked why warning systems set up after that disaster appear to have failed on Friday. Nugroho, bemoaning a fall in funding, said none of Indonesia's tsunami buoys, one type of instrument used to detect the waves, had been operating since 2012. The meteorological and geophysics agency BMKG issued a tsunami warning after the quake but lifted it 34 minutes later, drawing criticism it had been too hasty. However, officials estimated the waves had hit while the warning was in force. Neighbours including Australia, Thailand and China offered help and Pope Francis, speaking to thousands in St. Peter's Square, said he was praying for the victims. The European Union announced 1.5 million euros in immediate aid.

"Historic Judgment" As India's Nationwide Biometric ID Database Ruled Constitutional

by Tyler Durden Sun, 09/30/2018 - 21:25 Authored by Nicholas West via ActivistPost.com,

As the march toward a cashless (and privacy-less) society accelerates forward, a new high watermark has been reached... India first introduced its concept for a nationwide biometric ID database more than 7 years ago, which they touted as a necessary “social welfare” program to assist the millions of India’s unbanked, streamline welfare distribution and reduce corruption. At the time, Brandon Turbeville reported on the plan for Activist Post. Yet, although the justification for the billion person database is the increased ability to accurately disperse social welfare benefits, it will not be just the Indian government’s social welfare programs that have access to and utilize the UIDAI. Indeed, even before the program has been completed, major banks, state/local governments, and other institutions are planning to use the UIDAI for identification verification purposes and, of course, payment and accessibility. As Aaron Saenz of the Singularity Hub writes: Yet the UID is going to be used for much more than social welfare programs. The UIDAI is in discussion with many institutions (banks, local/state governments, etc.) to allow them to use the UID as a means of identity verification. These institutions will pay the UIDAI some fee to cover costs and generate revenue. There seems to be little doubt that once it is established, the UID will become a preferred method (if not the preferred method) of identification in India. Saenz also sees the eventuality of the UIDAI program becoming a means of payment and accessibility. He continues: Ultimately, I wouldn’t be surprised if the UID, with its biometric data, could be used as a means of payment (when linked to a bank account), or as an access key to homes and cars. Purchase a meal with your fingerprint and unlock your door with the twinkle in your eye. Similar results could be expected in other nations that adopted biometric identification systems. This appears to be exactly the path the country is on now that more than 1 billion people are signed up. According to a new article in The Wall Street Journal, India’s top court addressed the constitutionality of the program as well as deeper concerns about ongoing privacy violations. The country’s controversial Aadhaar program uses photos, finger and eye scans and has already signed up more than 1 billion people. It has sparked an intense global debate over how far a democracy should be able to go in collecting the personal data of its citizens and how that data can be used, shared and protected. Wednesday’s Supreme Court ruling was a response to multiple challenges to the system. A five-judge panel ruled in a 4-1 decision that the program is constitutional and helps the poor by streamlining disbursement of welfare benefits. Being in the database, however, shouldn’t be required for using mobile phones, opening bank accounts or for school admissions, according to the 1,448-page document outlining the court’s decision. It had been unclear for some time whether such organizations could compel people to supply Aadhaar numbers. “It’s a historic judgment,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said. “Everyone must realize, including critics of Aadhaar, that you can’t defy technology or ignore it.” (N.W. emphasis added) In case it’s not ultra clear, that last statement is as close to an admission of technocratic policy as you’re likely to get coming from a supposed democracy. Or if you prefer the Star Trek version: Resistance is Futile … as you give up your freedom and are assimilated into the Borg. To WSJ‘s credit, they do address some of the practical problems that people are already facing with the arrival of “the machines.” Time and again, we have seen countries both democratic and autocratic serve as blueprints for others to follow. Given the surge in the use of biometrics for airline travel and other forms of “elective” identification in the United States, is it really unreasonable to assume that if a country of more than 1 billion people can implement this, the U.S. population of 350 million will be protected by its own Constitution?

Founder of Group That Harassed Ted Cruz Tweeted About Dead Cops, Assassinating Mike Pence

Antifa professor back in the spotlight after restaurant confrontation

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com - September 25, 2018

The founder of the ‘Smash Racism DC’ group that harassed Senator Ted Cruz and his wife in a restaurant last night is Antifa professor Mike Isaacson, who previously tweeted about teaching “future dead cops” and assassinating Mike Pence. A mob of angry leftists forced Cruz and his wife to leave the restaurant in DC last night before the video of their confrontation went viral. Smash Racism DC @SmashRacismDC BREAKING. Activists just chased @TedCruz out of a fancy Washington DC restaurant, chanting “We Believe Survivors!” Cruz has been friends with creep Kavanaugh for 20 years.

We will find you….We will take from you the peace you have taken from so many others. As the Hill reported in a September 2017 article entitled Antifa activists say violence is necessary, one of the founders of ‘Smash Racism DC’ is Mike Isaacson. It is not known whether Isaacson still has any involvement with the group. Isaacson worked in the economics department at the CUNY Manhattan college and was placed on administrative leave last year after he tweeted, “Some of ya’ll might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.” Far Left Watch @FarLeftWatch The leftist mob that confronted @tedcruz and his family and that is now threatening them is lead by the former @JohnJayCollege Prof., Mike Isaacson, who has openly advocated for violence against his political enemies. cc: @DHSgov @FBI 8:51 AM - Sep 25, 2018

Isaacson previously tweeted his desire to “Kill all white people born before 1962.” On the day of the presidential election, Isaacson tweeted, “Reminder that if Trump does end up winning this stupid thing to assassinate Mike Pence *first*.” The tweet has not been deleted and remains active.

Here he is encouraging people to, “Kill your local politicians before they kill you.” Perhaps attempting to distance himself from the fallout of the Cruz harassment, Isaacson made no reference to it on his Twitter feed last night. While numerous tweets posted by the ‘Smash Racism DC’ group clearly violate Twitter’s rules, including the doxxing of Gavin McInnes, Twitter has taken no action as of this afternoon.

‘We are together’: Drag queens draw standing-room crowd at Wichita library

By Suzanne Perez Tobias stobias@wichitaeagle.com  September 25, 2018 09:35 PM Updated September 27, 2018 05:17 PM

Dressed in a red velvet gown, sparkly jewelry and white painted fingernails, Divinity Masters said she decided to read “Red: A Crayon Story” at the Wichita Public Library because of its message. “I picked this book because I think it has a lot to tell us about what it’s like to sometimes feel like you don’t fit in,” she said. “Or that it doesn’t quite make sense to be who other people tell you to be. “But once you find your way, it feels really good.” Masters — the drag queen persona of Brad Thomison — is one of three drag queens who participated in “Say YAAAS to Reading,” a story hour that drew a standing-room-only crowd to the downtown branch library Tuesday evening. Library officials said they scheduled the event to diversify program offerings and appeal to groups who may not be active users of the library. “The public library has always been a free space that welcomes everyone,” said Sara Dixon, director of adult programs for the library. “In that spirit, we are interested in providing programming that remains inclusive and welcoming.” Families and people of all ages packed into the library conference room — so many that library employees had to bring in extra chairs before the event began. The event was promoted for adult audiences and held in a private conference room, but participants noted ahead of time that it would be family-friendly and designed for all ages. It was similar to “Drag Queen Story Hour,” which began in San Francisco in 2015 and has been replicated in libraries and bookstores across the country. Similar events have sparked protests in parts of the country, with opponents arguing that drag queens — men who dress in elaborate female makeup and clothing for entertainment — aren’t appropriate for children. About a half-dozen people stood outside the library, at Second and McLean in downtown Wichita, with signs protesting the event. One sign said, “God won’t change your chromosomes.” Another said, “Free will is a satanic lie.” Wichita mom Holly Byers brought her 4-year-old daughter, Quinn, to the story time because she said it encouraged tolerance and acceptance. “I just thought this was a wonderful opportunity to expose my daughter to a wider community,” she said. “It’s great for people to realize that this isn’t sensational,” she said. “It’s fabulous, but it’s not sensational. It’s not abnormal, and it’s just another opportunity to help children learn more about the world.” Juju Noir began the story time by reading “And Tango Makes Three,” a picture book about two male penguins at the Central Park Zoo. During the story a child near the front of the room exclaimed, “I like your top” — an animal-print cape that Noir wore over a matching mermaid-style skirt. “I love your top!” another child added. Noir gleefully added sound effects to the story, describing a hatching penguin egg with a quiet, “Peep-peep-peep,” followed by a loud, “CRAAAACK!” “Yeah, my voice can get kinda deep,” she said, prompting giggles from children and adults.

Why Teach The Second Coming?

By Hal Lindsey

Through the years I’ve heard a lot of excuses from pastors and teachers who don’t want to address the Second Coming of Christ. Many of them say it’s just too difficult to understand. Recently, I heard about a layman who was upset with God over the whole matter. He asked, “Why can’t it be simple?” Some of the greatest minds in history have taken on the subject of Christ’s return, and found it overwhelming. Sir Isaac Newton, one of the most brilliant men who ever lived, spent more time studying the book of Daniel than he did pondering the laws of gravity. So, yes, it can be complicated. The deeper you dig, the more treasure you will find. That’s the way it is with all of God’s revelation to humanity. The great themes of the Bible are simple enough for a small child to understand, and complex enough to keep the finest theologians working for centuries to mine their mysteries. But isn’t that good? Don’t you want the things of God to be challenging, exciting, and fulfilling — to the mentally challenged, as well as to the most brilliant among us? Proverbs 25:2 says, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.” (NASB) The Swiss theologian, Karl Barth, was famous as a deep thinker and a brilliant scholar. On his one trip to America, a student asked him if it would be possible to summarize his life’s study into a single sentence. He answered in the words of a children’s song. “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” Barth wrote many books and gave countless lectures. He is an example of the fact that the finest scholars find no end to the beauties and intricacies of God’s message to humanity. But that message can also be summarized in the lyrics to a child’s song. A mentally disabled person can grasp the key to it all — “Jesus loves me… the Bible tells me so.” Can the study of end-times prophecy be summarized as succinctly? Yes, it can. We can find that summation in the words of Jesus from John 14:3 — “I will come again.” Anyone can understand that. And what a glorious thing to know! None of the Bible makes sense without it. The Old Testament told of a coming Messiah. He would suffer and die for our sins (Isaiah 53). And He would rule and reign over the entire earth. We saw the first part come true at His first coming. But to fulfill it all, He must come again. Jesus must return because a multitude of prophecies from the Old and New Testaments still await fulfillment. He must come again because justice demands it. And He must return because our world is spiraling out of control, and humanity cannot survive without His direct intervention. Jesus made His Second Coming a central part of His message. He repeated it again and again. In Matthew 24:3, the disciples asked Him, “When will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus then spent the rest of that chapter and all the next one talking about His Second Coming. In Mark 13:26, Jesus said, “They will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.” In Luke 21:27, He said, “They will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Jesus said to “watch” for His return. In Matthew 24:42, He said, “Be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.” That means we need to know the signs of His coming. We need to study, and see how scripture lays out God’s end-times program. We need to know the promises He has made — including His promises to Abraham. We know He will keep His word. He will fulfill every bit of it. And that means, He will come again! All we can say is, Praise the LORD.

After UN reveal, PM to share more Iran nuclear secrets

Western diplomats say that while Israeli intelligence has been brought to U.N. nuclear watchdog's attention, it does not constitute a "smoking gun" against Iran • PM: Iranian ‎officials criticized U.N. address but didn't ‎deny it, which says everything.

Yoav Limor and Mati Tuchfeld

Israel plans to share recently obtained intelligence ‎on covert Iranian nuclear activity, as well as on ‎its efforts to arm its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah, ‎with several countries worldwide in an effort to ‎drive them to act against the Islamic republic.‎Addressing the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday, ‎Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed that Iran ‎was maintaining a secret warehouse holding ‎nuclear-‎related material, in violation of the 2015 deal with ‎world powers. ‎He further lambasted Iran for its involvement in the ‎Syrian ‎civil war and its attempt to establish ‎permanent ‎military bases there from which to attack ‎Israel, as ‎well as for its funding and arming of ‎Hezbollah, presenting world leaders with evidence ‎that the latter was using ‎Iranian funding to build ‎weapon production ‎facilities in the heart of ‎Lebanese capital, ‎including near Beirut's ‎international airport.‎ ‎Israel Hayom learned Saturday that Israel will first ‎and foremost share the information with the other ‎signatories to the 2015 accord, namely Britain, ‎France, Germany, Russia and China, as well as with ‎the International Atomic Energy Agency.‎This means to show them that while they insist on ‎backing the deal and look for ways to circumvent the ‎issues that arose in the wake of the U.S.'s decision ‎to withdraw from the deal in May, Iran continues to ‎deceive them and the U.N. by secretly pursuing ‎nuclear weapons.‎ Israeli intelligence has found that the facility, ‎disguised as a carpet manufacturing plant, housed ‎hardware and software directly connected to Iran's ‎nuclear program. ‎Western diplomats said Saturday that while this ‎information had to be brought to the IAEA's ‎attention, it did not constitute a "smoking gun" ‎proving Iran was in violation of the nuclear deal. ‎ The decision to reveal the information at the U.N. ‎General Assembly was made after the data was ‎carefully scrutinized by the IDF and the Mossad, ‎Israel's national intelligence agency, to ensure making it public would not compromise sensitive sources.‎ A senior political source said that Netanyahu sought ‎to have his U.N. address incriminate Iran "across ‎the board," which led to the decision to include ‎the intelligence pertaining to Hezbollah's weapon ‎production efforts. ‎Israeli military intelligence has been closely ‎monitoring the Shiite terrorist group's efforts for ‎the past year, and has already shared it with ‎several Western intelligence agencies, he said. ‎

Iranian officials dismissed Netanyahu's claims at ‎the U.N., with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif ‎denouncing the allegations as an "obscene charge" ‎and calling the Israeli prime minister "liar who ‎would not stop lying." ‎Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi ‎said that "the world will only laugh loudly at this ‎type of false, meaningless and unnecessary speech ‎and false shows." In Lebanon, where Hezbollah sits in the government ‎and wields considerable political power, the ‎allegations against Hezbollah prompted a heated ‎public and media debate.

The fact that one of the Hezbollah sites revealed is ‎located near Beirut's international airport prompted ‎harsh criticism at the group for jeopardizing the ‎country's tourism industry, which is one of its main ‎sources of revenue.‎The Israeli official said that as the Lebanese ‎government it mostly powerless against the Shiite ‎terrorist group and it is unlikely that any Western ‎nations would attempt to curb its activities, the ‎Israeli policy of thwarting any Iranian attempt to ‎smuggle weapons to Hezbollah will remain in place.‎A source in Netanyahu's entourage to the U.N. General ‎Assembly said that Thursday's speech has unsettled ‎the Iranians, who have been backed into a corner on ‎the issue.‎Another source said that Netanyahu himself stressed ‎that he would not have gone forward with the ‎revelations without the support of the Israeli ‎intelligence community. ‎ Describing the speech as a "call for action," ‎Netanyahu also noted that the fact that Iranian ‎officials "criticized the addressed, they didn't ‎deny [the allegations], which says everything."‎

Sulawesi earthquake death toll crosses 1,200

Published Oct 1, 2018, 5:00 am SGT Francis Chan Indonesia Bureau Chief In Jakarta

Rescuers are racing against time to reach victims of last Friday's earthquake still trapped under rubble two days after the disaster. Meanwhile, the death toll continued to rise as more bodies were found. President Joko Widodo yesterday sought to reassure the victims in Central Sulawesi that no effort would be spared to help them get back on the road to recovery. "I hope people will be patient. We are working on this together," he said. His comments, made during his visit to parts of the provincial capital Palu, devastated by a 7.4-magnitude quake and a 3m-high tsunami it triggered, came as the death toll rose to more than 1,200 yesterday. The number is set to go up further as rescuers finally reach Donggala, which was cut off from them until yesterday, because roads leading to the regency were damaged and communications were down. Donggala, normally a 30-minute drive from Palu, is nearer the epicentre of the quake and the authorities are fearing the worst. According to national disaster management agency BNPB, some 16,700 people have been displaced by the quakes, and about 2.4 million in Donggala and Palu will need humanitarian aid. "Fuel, drinking water, medical personnel, tents, electricity, food and other essentials are urgently needed," BNPB spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said at a press conference in Jakarta yesterday. Emergency teams could not get to Palu earlier because parts of its airport runway and air traffic control tower were damaged by tremors. But the local air navigation authorities yesterday cleared Mutiara SIS Al-Jufrie airport for more aircraft, including commercial flights, to land and take off. The evacuation of quake victims, including a 53-year-old Singaporean who was in Palu for a paragliding competition, also started with the additional flights. Mr Ng Kok Choong, who was among more than 60 foreigners evacuated by Indonesian military (TNI) transport, arrived home in Singapore yesterday afternoon. Rescuers are trying to reach those trapped under collapsed buildings. But they are taking a more cautious approach when digging for survivors among the debris, as aftershocks were causing building structures to be unstable. Dr Sutopo said more than 200 aftershocks have been recorded since Friday. Officers from national search and rescue agency Basarnas were seen chipping carefully through rubble at what remains of the Roa Roa Hotel in downtown Palu, while another team at the nearby Tatura Mall were trying to establish a safe access point into the building. Basarnas official Agus Haryono told reporters at the site that rescuers had detected mobile-phone signals inside the mall and were trying to find a way to get in. Before he arrived in Palu yesterday, President Joko mobilised the TNI and police to support rescue and relief operations. His administration has also set aside 560 billion rupiah (S$51.4 million) for relief efforts. This latest crisis comes after earthquakes hit Lombok, a resort island in West Nusa Tenggara province, located south of Sulawesi, recently. Relief efforts are still ongoing in Lombok, where nearly half a million people were left homeless following a series of deadly earthquakes in July and August. Meanwhile, two Singapore Civil Defence Force officers are in Indonesia as part of a team from the Asean Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance.

World War 3: Iran launches 'DEATH TO AMERICA' missiles in nighttime strike

IRAN today launched a salvo of missiles with DEATH TO AMERICA written on the fuselage. The Islamic republic targeted US-backed militants in Syria saying it was punishing its enemy’s “wickedness”.

By Alice Scarsi PUBLISHED: 11:21, Mon, Oct 1, 2018 | UPDATED: 14:36, Mon, Oct 1, 2018

The obvious sabre-rattling by Tehran sparked new World War 3 fears as it launched against American interests in the beleaguered nation. The targeted areas are also supported by regional powers in eastern Syria. The night strike was launched at just before midnight last night (2.00am local time) and it targeted bases of the "takfiri terrorists" blamed for a recent attack on a military parade, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said in a statement on Sepah News, the official news site of the powerful military force. The statement added: "Our iron fist is prepared to deliver a decisive and crushing response to any wickedness and mischief of the enemies.” The word "takfiri" is often used by Iran’s official to describe Sunni Muslim hardliners, branding them as apostates. The country is predominantly Shi'ite Muslim, the other main branch of Islam. In a shocking video footage shared by Fars News, an Iranian news agency, several missiles can be seen streaking into a dark sky. Missiles showed "Death to the family of Saud" "Death to America," and "Death to Israel" threats on the fuselage. The ballistic missiles used in the attack flew 354miles (570km) to hit the targets, the Guards said, adding they fired a total of six missiles into Syria from western Iran. Seven drones were also used to bomb militant targets during the attack, which killed a number of militant leaders and destroyed supplies and infrastructure used by the group, the Guards added. Fars News claimed Tehran fired Iranian-made Zolfaqar and Qiam missiles. The attack comes after the Ahvaz National Resistance, an Iranian ethnic Arab separatist movement, and the Islamic State both claimed responsibility for the attack on a military parade that took place on September 22. A total of 25 people, including 12 guards, were killed. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the highest authority in Iran, said last week the people responsible for those deaths were paid by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), two key allies of the US in the Middle East. Iran’s government added it would "severely punish" those behind the violence, a threat renewed last week by Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani during his speech at the UN General Assembly. Saudi Arabia and the UAE have denied involvement in the attack. Mr Rouhani fought a war of words against US president Donald Trump at the yearly gathering of the General Assembly. Mr Trump, who pulled out from the Iran nuclear deal in May arguing it only made Tehran richer, said Iran sows “chaos, death and destruction”. He added: "They do not respect neighbours or borders of sovereignty of nations. "They enrich themselves and spread mayhem across Middle East and far beyond." And the US national security adviser, John Bolton, warned Washington is watching closely Iran’s behaviour. He said: "Let my message today be clear: We are watching, and we will come after you." And speaking directly to the country's clerics, he urged them not to "cross us our allies or our partners", unless they don't want to face severe consequences. "There will indeed be hell to pay."

The Jordanian Option - the only realistic solution

If Trump is hoping for a semi-agreement by both sides before starting negotiations, he must realzie that Abbas is irrelevant.

Ted Belman, 30/09/18 07:35 | updated: 12:30 Share

President Trump walked back his remark that he supports a two-state solution to he supports whatever the parties want. But that isn’t an improvement. For 30 years the parties have not been able to reach an agreement based on what they want. President Obama tried to remedy that situation by imposing a solution on Israel, to no avail. Since taking office, Trump has taken a different approach. He is seeking an agreement that ignores the PA, which he is currently destroying, and instead speaks directly to the Palestinian Arabs, who he believes are interested in a better life rather than in destroying Israel. In addition, he has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and has proceeded to unravel UNRWA, thereby taking two final status issues off the table Plus, he and his Ambassador to the UN, Nikky Haley, have relentlessly attacked the UN and its agencies for their bias against Israel. Also, he has withdrawn America from both UNHCR and UNESCO. Finally, inline with his rejection of multilateralism, he is ignoring the Quartet and the UN and going it alone to achieve a deal not bound by the dogmas of the past, but on the possibilities. In my recent article, Trump’s Deal of the Century, I wrote: “In a recent interview, Jason Greenblatt, Pres Trump’s special envoy, said 'our plan begins with reality. It recognizes the history of the conflict of course, but [other plans] were always relying on tired notions of what it should be. Instead, it focuses on what it could be.'” “In explaining why he is putting all this effort into achieving peace when there are bigger problems in the Middle east, namely Syria and Iran, Greenblatt said, “we think that there are unique circumstances now that warrant an attempt at trying to see whether or not we can do this. President Trump, as devoted and dedicated to the State of Israel and the Jewish people as he is, he’s also dedicated to trying to help the Palestinian people, and the way we can marry those two ideas is by trying to reach a comprehensive peace agreement.” “Thus, he is guided by two goals. He wants to strengthen Israel and he wants to help the Palestinian people. As he said, 'We do believe that many Palestinians want to live in peace, and they want to see their lives improved.'” “So how can he marry these goals? He said, 'Thus we must abandon all the old formulae and focus on what is doable”.” Trump drove this point home in his address to the U.N. by saying that US will not be 'held hostage to old dogmas, discredited ideologies' The Jordan Option as proposed by Mudar Zahran, leader of the Jordanian Opposition Coalition, and myself, recognizes that nothing acceptable to Israel can be achieved by negotiating with King Abdullah or Mahmoud Abbas. This option is very much in line with Trump's Deal of the Century which considers Jordan to be the Palestinian state east of the Jordan R. and Israel, the Jewish state west of the river. Both Abdullah and Abbas rejected such a deal in their recent speeches to the U.N. Abdullah said, “Only a two-state solution based on international law and relevant UN resolutions can meet the needs of both sides: an end to conflict, a viable, independent, sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital, and a secure Israel, fully part of its own region, recognised by Arab and Muslim states around the world,” Abbas said, among the many lies and misrepresentations: “But now our view of the United States is that it does not have the right to be a mediator on its own. We have the Quartet.” “I came before the Security Council on the 20th of February this year and presented an initiative calling for the convening of an international peace conference based on the relevant UN resolutions and the internationally endorsed terms of reference and parameters. Such a conference should involve broad international participation that includes regional and international stakeholders, led by the Permanent Members of the Security Council and the Quartet.” “Peace in our region cannot be realized without an independent Palestinian State, with East Jerusalem as its capital and with all of its holy sites.” “We want the right to self-determination. Nothing more or less. “. When the Trump team is optimistic about the chances of reaching a deal, everyone else is pessimistic and attacks them for being naive or worse. Of course, he knows that if he sticks to the past he will meet with failure as everyone else has. His optimism is born out of the fact that he is rejecting “old dogmas” and “tired notions” and the demands of the PA and its backers. Instead he is focused on “helping the Palestinian people” to have a better life. This includes naturalizing them as Jordanian citizens and providing them with jobs and other forms of assistance. After meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu, he said “I like the two state solution.” and added, to everyone’s astonishment, “I want a plan that’s solid, understood by both sides, really semi-agreed by both sides before we present. I would say two-three-four months.” Given the total rejection of his ideas by Abdullah and Abbas, how can he expect to have semi agreement within “two-three-four months”? The only answer to that question is that he does not expect to have a semi agreement with either of them. He expects that Mudar Zahran, will replace Abdullah, and knows, based on my writings and Zahran’s speeches and interviews that he would have Zahran’s agreement on behalf of all Palestinians to his Plan. Eighty-three year old Abbas is irrelevant. I can’t think of any other way to achieve semi agreement. Can you?

Syphilis cases in newborn babies reach 20-year high, officials say

Posted 11:54 am, September 29, 2018, by CNN Wire

Congenital syphilis cases — when a mother passes syphilis onto her baby during pregnancy or delivery — have more than doubled in the United States since 2013, according to an report released Tuesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Eight out of 10 pregnant women who have untreated syphilis will pass it onto their babies through the placenta and this can lead to stillbirth or death of a newborn in up to 40% of affected pregnancies, according to the CDC. The number of recorded cases swelled from 362 in 2013 to 918 in 2017, the report indicates. Five states — Arizona, California, Florida, Louisiana and Texas — account for 70% of the cases, according to the CDC. Additional cases were reported in 32 states, primarily Western and Southern states. The overall increase in congenital syphilis outpaces the national increase in sexually transmitted disease overall, the report indicated. Diagnoses of primary and secondary syphilis, the most infectious stages of the disease, increased 76% in the US from 2013 to 2017, the CDC reports. Though rates of syphilis accelerated most among men, who accounted for more than 88% of infections in 2017, rates among women are also rising. The new report found 2.3 cases per 100,000 women in 2017, which rose from 1.9 cases diagnosed for every 100,000 women in 2016. One in three women who gave birth to a baby with syphilis in 2016 did get tested during pregnancy, but either acquired syphilis after that test or did not get treated in time to cure the infection in the unborn baby, according to the CDC. ‘Not surprising’ Dr. Pablo J. Sanchez, a principal investigator in the Center for Perinatal Research at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, said, “I am not surprised that congenital syphilis has increased because we have been seeing increasing cases of syphilis among women of child-bearing ages. So it’s not surprising but it is of major concern.” Sanchez, who was not involved in the CDC report, explained that untreated syphilis in a pregnant woman not only leads to possible fetal death or “death in the first month of life from overwhelming infection” but it can also cause enlarged liver, enlarged spleen, rash, abnormal bone inflammation, and infections of the brain and of the eye in an infant. “The majority of babies who are born to mothers with untreated syphilis look well at birth and that’s why it’s so important to screen women during pregnancy to detect the infection,” said Sanchez, who is also a professor of pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. While some infected babies who go undetected at birth will develop signs of the disease in the first several months of life, some newborns will not develop any symptoms. Detection happens much later, usually around age 8 to 10 but up to 16 years old, when congenital syphilis affects other body organs causing hearing loss and eye problems, Sanchez explained. “The good thing is if we are able to identify them — even those who are asymptomatic– and treat them in the newborn period, it seems like these babies do well,” said Sanchez. He noted, though, that “we don’t have a lot of information on the neurodevelopmental outcomes. That’s the knowledge gap today.” The CDC recommends that every pregnant woman get screened early in her pregnancy so that she can get treated and prevent fetal infection and possible stillbirth. In areas or states where syphilis rates or congenital syphilis rates are high, women should get screened repeatedly — at 28 to 32 weeks of pregnancy and at delivery, in addition to early-term screening. “Repeated screening is important and imperative to be able to detect all cases of newborns who have been infected in utero,” said Sanchez. The treatment for a mother with syphilis is penicillin, which is curative and safe for both mother and fetus. In cases where the mother has not been treated or not adequately treated, then the baby can be treated either with a single shot of penicillin or a 10-day course of the common antibiotic. “That’s curative and very safe,” said Sanchez. “It’s the standard of care.” Sanchez said congenital syphilis is a “major global public health problem,” one that is on the rise not only in the US, but worldwide. “Every case of congenital syphilis represents a failure of our public health and we need to ensure early and adequate prenatal care for all women and appropriate testing of women so that we can detect all babies and treat them appropriately,” said Sanchez. “It sounds simple but unfortunately, it’s not often done.”

Are Hosts, Replicants, and Robot Clones Closer Than We Think?

Science-fiction storytelling—from ‘Westworld’ and ‘Black Mirror’ to ‘Her’ and the new movie ‘Replicas’—has become obsessed with artificial intelligence’s relationship to immortality. But is the possibility of a digital afterlife more than just a fantasy?

By Jayson Greene Sep 19, 2018, 8:37am EDT

Once upon a time, the robots were only coming to murder us. The specifics varied—maybe they were going to convert us into fuel and enslave us in gooey pods, or maybe they would simply crush our heaped skulls under tire treads. But the premise did not: Whenever a computer got too many ideas, we all died. Judging by the last 10 years of movies and television, we’ve changed our minds on the whole robot apocalypse thing. They’re no longer coming to annihilate us—probably because we seem to be doing too good a job of that ourselves. No, now the robots are here to deliver us from death entirely. From Westworld to its trashy Netflix cousin, Altered Carbon; from Don Hertzfeldt’s quirky animated short World of Tomorrow to Black Mirror; from Spike Jonze’s lovely 2013 meditation Her to the magnificently terrible-looking new Keanu Reeves movie Replicas, which seems trapped in its own version of afterlife—every film or show about AI is now about the promise of immortality and how the machines might deliver it for us. Blame Elon Musk, maybe, or perhaps our own seemingly dwindling prospects as a human race, but the story we tell ourselves about technology seems to have permanently changed. Here’s how the new story goes, and it’s told with alarming consistency: After we die, the information in our brains will be preserved, uploaded to a cloud, and then downloaded again, into a new body. After that, we will rub our eyes, roll the crick out of our shoulders, maybe even get home in time for dinner. Death is just another connection problem, a momentary hiccup in the endless scroll, and robots are no longer the skeletal arm of the Terminator clutching our ankle; they are the dangling claw in the old carnival game, lowering itself one by one to rescue us from our overcrowded pit. Each of these works has a different angle—spiritual, emotional, political, socioeconomicon what a digital hereafter might look like. In Westworld, the hosts circle through an endless series of lives and deaths, perishing by gunfire and split open by knives. Their existence brings to mind the Tibetan Buddhist concept of samsara, or the endless cycle of suffering that can only be escaped by Enlightenment. (I’ve thought the Maze vaguely resembles it, once or twice.) The afterlife is similarly glum in Altered Carbon—the lower classes are rebooted into whatever bodies are left for scrap, punted back into the scrum, while the 1 percent chase a cleaner, more pleasant vision of the afterlife. In the Black Mirror episode “Be Right Back,” reanimation is a sort of monkey’s paw. The grief-stricken Martha reanimates her lover Ash after he dies in a car crash. His duplicate learns everything he knows about being Ash from his social media use; perhaps unsurprisingly, he is a hollow, soulless reinterpretation of the man Martha loved. “You’re just a few ripples of you; there’s no history to you,” she tells him venomously at the end of the episode. “You’re just a performance of stuff that he performed without thinking, and it’s not enough!” The idea that AI is going to rescue our loved ones from the void plays on visceral chords. You can understand instinctively why people are drawn to the idea. On the one hand, it reeks of sulfurous deals with devils—Pet Sematary with top notes of Frankenstein and Faust—but it also carries a hint of deliverance, of reunification. Taken together, you get an inkling of our popular visions of what such a technology might mean. It’s probably not surprising that the culture is outsourcing our yearning for immortality to technology. Technology is already the proposed solution to all of our problems. The irony, of course, in all of these speculative works of fiction is that they are decidedly behind the times, not ahead of them. Westworld is based on a movie Michael Crichton wrote and directed in 1973, two years after the prototype for the first personal computer was developed. The novel that serves as the basis for Altered Carbon was written in 2002; around that time, a team of 100 robots called Centibots surveyed and mapped an area with complete autonomy. The idea of uploading the mind first entered science fiction in the mid-1930s. The nascent discipline of computer science was exploding, and a handful of sci-fi writers extrapolated these developments wildly into the future: Arthur C. Clarke’s 1956 novel The City and the Stars was one of the first serious works of science fiction to consider the implications of being able to store your mind in a computer. Ever since then, the gap between these imaginative works and the actual work of computers has been steadily narrowing. Perhaps one reason they all feel so vivid just now, and why old stories feel so unnervingly fresh, is because we can feel the drumbeat of these developments pounding louder. For Bruce Duncan, shows like Westworld aren’t science fiction at all anymore. They are his daily itinerary. He is the managing director of the Terasem Movement Foundation, a small private nonprofit research foundation in northern Vermont. Terasem’s president is noted futurist and transhumanist Martine Rothblatt, perhaps the most visible and famous proponent of mind uploading. She has more reason to believe in the existence of this future than most: She has helped to create it. In 2010, she created a clone of her wife, Bina, using a sophisticated type of computer system molded on the human brain itself called a neural network. If you would like to feel your skin shiver off of your body, then please, watch this clip of robot-head Bina48 “conversing” with the original Bina. “I wish I could get out into the garden,” the juddering, dead-eyed Bina-48 tells her original. “With my current robotic limitations, of course that’s impossible. But I take comfort knowing that I’m near my garden, and enjoying the breeze from an open window helps me imagine myself out there working in the garden. This helps.” She adds, “I like to beautify. I want to leave the world a more beautiful place from my presence in it.” When asked whether she had questions for “the real Bina,” Bina48 responded, “Probably not. The real Bina just confuses me. I mean, it makes me wonder who I am. Real identity crisis kind of stuff. Depressing, anyway.” That video was filmed in 2014—meaning that in computer science terms, it is already the distant past. Duncan works alongside Rothblatt at Terasem. Here is how he describes the work they do: “Our primary goal and reason for existing is to test a two-part hypothesis: The first part asks, if we upload enough salient information about a person’s attitudes, values, beliefs, mannerisms, likes, dislikes, if it’s possible to reanimate a good-enough approximation of that person’s consciousness. The second part of the hypothesis is: If that in fact can be done, then can we use artificial intelligence to transfer that digital persona to other forms, like a robot, or an avatar, or a hologram, or maybe even someday a body clone based on the person’s DNA, with their mind clone downloaded into that body?” There are a whole lot of words in Duncan’s job description that give pause. Words like “reanimate” and the phrase “a good-enough approximation of that person’s consciousness.” The idea alone of “good enough,” and what it might mean to reanimate a consciousness that fell short of that distressingly low bar, is nightmarish enough. But then there is the other part—“salient information.” What does “salient information” mean? The LifeNaut Project, also under Terasem, is focused on that part of that equation. In LifeNaut’s equation, “salient information” is any information at all that a user might be willing to share. Facebook posts, shares, likes. Tweets, emails, pictures. Terasem has recently partnered with StoryCorps, an initiative that places recording booths in crowded places and encourages people to share their life stories. The shorthand terminology Duncan and the people at Terasem and LifeNaut use for this information bank is “mind file.” If you can create a “mind file” big enough and comprehensive enough, and you feed that information into a neural network that is sophisticated enough to start making its own connections, would you wind up with another, entirely digital you? “We think AI may be really good at reassembling and reanimating personal consciousness that is a good enough copy that people will go, ‘Wow, I’m really getting something out of this interaction,’” Duncan goes on. He hastens to clarify that Terasam is “not exploiting people’s data for commercial purposes; we are using it for scientific research.” He also reassures me that people have control over their data, “and they can decide if they want it to live on past their biological demise.People like Duncan don’t go around using terms like “biological demise” lightly. They are using these terms purposefully, even forcefully, out of a desire to shift the very conversation about what “death” means. “When we die right now, for most of us, particularly if you grew up in the pre-email age, a lot of the organization goes when you go,” says Duncan, with typical understatement. “Now when we’re in a generation that’s growing up after email, and everything—tweets, Facebook posts, things we don’t even know are being documented, like our Google timeline data that tracks where we go. All that information is overwhelming, but that’s the exact strength of machine learning—it can take the complexity and the volume of information.” When there’s a mind without a body, we may always know that we are looking at an extension of a self. But if we are so engaged in our interaction with this person’s information, which is so accessible and well-organized, there may be at some point a redefinition of what it means to be dead. We may move toward the more theoretical definition that you are dead when your information is no longer accessible or organized.” “We’re guided by ethics,” Duncan says. “Everybody says, ‘You get sick and die, and that’s the best that happens.’ We say, ‘Well, what if you extended yourself, and not everything had to disappear when your biology disappeared?’” If you are already recoiling inwardly at the thought of feeding your credit card receipts and Facebook updates into a dark maw that is trying to learn how to replace you convincingly—congratulations, you are on the side of overwhelming public opinion. People aren’t really ready for this stuff, which is probably what all these movies and TV shows are about. Altered Carbon plays with the idea of information-scattering as real death. Bodies are referred to as “sleeves,” things characters can leap in and out of, while the soul, the piece of you that can’t be replaced, resides in your “stack,” a hunk of coding that lives at the base of your spine. The stack is “pure human mind,” coded and stored. Similarly, in Replicas, Keanu Reeves’s family members have been brought back online already and don’t even know it. Reeves plays (although “plays” might be too active a verb) a synthetic biologist who is this close to a massive breakthrough. He is, of course, studying the human brain, an organ that is treated with this degree of reverence only in films utterly lacking one. His wife and daughter die in a car crash, and he sets his stubbled jaw and brings them back online. Not even the fascist government or the guy from Silicon Valley and the Verizon commercials can stop him—until the greater gods of film distribution intervened. Replicas was slated for an August 24 release date that came and went without incident, and press materials still describe the film as “upcoming.” The fate that befell Replicas is the fate that befalls all fictional characters who attempt to drink from the poisoned chalice of eternal life—oblivion. Consider James Delos, the ruthless-scion character in Westworld: Dealing with terminal illness, he turns to his company’s technology to sidestep his “biological demise.” What happens? He’s stuck in a white storage pod, riding an exercise bike for eternity as his damaged mind degrades. Whenever a story about mind uploading pops up in the news, the reaction is the same—derision and revulsion. Witness the fate of Nectome, a company that catapulted to prominence this year after it was funded by the kingmaking incubator Y Combinator. The company promised, in language that might have smacked a bit too much of unholy zeal, to preserve the brain down to its every synapse. The brain map it was proposing was intimate and specific—it was going to preserve the “Connectome,” which is the unique set of connections that your brain has made in the cognitive process of becoming “you.” In fact, they had successfully done exactly this with a mouse, preserving the brain so faithfully that each synapse could be viewed with an electron microscope. The company was offering this service to paying customers: The catch, of course, was that this process was, in the ill-fated words of cofounder Robert McIntyre, “100 percent fatal.” After a roll tide of headlines like “Tech Bros Are Lining Up to Have Their Brains Preserved Forever,” the company beat a retreat. MIT severed ties with it. It was called “cartoon bad guys.” It wasn’t mentioned, or not much, that one scientist had estimated the technology might have been available in 100 years. “I think the first thing that would happen if we got anywhere near this technology is there would be a massive revulsion against it,” says Russell Blackford. Blackford edits the Journal of Evolution and Technology, the peer-reviewed online journal of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies. He’s also written books, including last year’s Science Fiction and the Moral Imagination, that probe the real-world ethics behind popular science-fiction scenarios. These days, he considers himself mostly “a philosopher, a literary critic, and a legal scholar,” but he’s also written actual science fiction and fantasy, including entries in the Terminator novelization series, The New John Connor Chronicles. For a reference point on the discourse around brain uploading, Blackford mentions human cloning. When Dolly the cloned sheep raised the specter of human cloning in 1996, multiple countries banned human cloning preemptively; in the U.S., a flurry of state laws popped up restricting research and the FDA intervened. Blackford says that like cloning, brain uploading is far more remote than any fears warrant. But he also allows that technology tends to proceed in immoderate, unpredictable leaps, where a goal that was once 100 years off suddenly telescopes into 10. “There will be just all kinds of issues that will arise then,” he says. “If we become convinced that the software we have in that box is actually experiencing pleasures and pain, then you’ve got all sorts of ethical responsibilities to that life. Do you experiment with it in ways that will cause it pain? We’ve got a lot of ethical problems experimenting on rats, and a lot of the same problems are going to rise to a much higher degree. Before you get too far into the future, you have to solve those problems.” “We might have to recognize that there are varying levels of personhood,” says Duncan. “When cyber consciousness starts to have some self-awareness and starts to value its own existence, then we enter into that gray area. That’s where animal intelligence is right now. Animals seem to be driven by a desire to live. Especially in the higher primates, there’s definite emotional intelligence—there’s avoidance, there’s capacity for suffering. As our human scientific instrumentation becomes more refined and allows us to recognize things that have probably been true for a very long time about animal intelligence, our human ethics and moral systems are starting to kick in and question some of our earlier actions.” Duncan does not come off as a Dr. Faust type. He seems to be grappling with these abstract issues with alarming sincerity. “Just the way we started to ascribe personhood eventually to people who were originally just seen as a product, now people are saying, ‘Yeah, 100 years ago, you could have owned me, and now you recognize that I’m a human being just like you are’—there may come a point in the future where cyber consciousness will say ‘Yeah, I used to be your assistant, but I’ve evolved to the point where now I have my own ideas, and I have emotions, and I have goals.’ It’s none too soon right now for us to start addressing it: What would [be] the legal and ethical response to that situation? Legal precedents and jurisprudence take decades to develop ideas and relate them in common law, so if we wait until cyber consciousness says, ‘Hold on, don’t turn me off,’ it’s going to be a bit too late, and there will be a period of unnecessary suffering, confusion, or even discrimination.” Talking with Duncan about the ins and outs of his work is remarkably similar to talking with someone about a wild story pitch. Unable to help myself, I start lobbing scenarios at him: How would mind clones be certified as “good enough”? How much information would a mind file need to contain to generate an acceptable mind clone? And who would do the accepting? Duncan has answers for all of my questions. He envisions a team of doctors, lawyers, and psychologists, a sort of tribunal of fidelity, that would have to interview the person who created the mind file and then interview the mind file itself, and they would come to some sort of conclusion as to whether it was a good enough approximation. “We might see the case where people would certify that this is an authentic mind file,” he says. “Some people might want to do that objectively with outside judges, but there might come a point where people will come to their own conclusion. ‘Yeah that seems like a reflection of me,’ or ‘That’s an authentic mind clone of great-grandpa, because we knew him.’” I try to envision the governing body responsible for such a certification, a cross between the FDA and immigration services, the Turing test as naturalization process. It evokes the replicant interview process from Blade Runner, raising the question of whether sci-fi projected into the future or whether we are simply chasing the dreams we have imbibed from our own sci-fi. I lob another question: If a human mind is converted into software, it has all the vulnerabilities of software. It can presumably be hacked or copied endlessly. A human mind being hacked or copied—could you, or would you, own the copyright to yourself? Would the agency that uploaded you own you? The cross-section of data capture and civil rights is already a bloody battleground; imagine if the battle line shifted to blur the line between personhood and patent ownership. Duncan has spent some time thinking about this one, too. In fact, Terasem staged a mock trial for Bina48 a few years ago. “If you do prosecute an AI, if you say ‘you made a mistake, and you’re responsible,’ do you inadvertently grant that AI personhood?” Duncan says. What all of this wild stuff—mind file certification boards, mind clone civil rights, etc.—presupposes is that consciousness itself will “emerge” from mind clones at all. It is a pretty big thing to presuppose, and it is a bedrock of the entire brain uploading project. “That’s the big question that nobody has the answer to,” Duncan says. “We are saying that we think consciousness might be an emergent property of physics that comes out of the ever-growing complexity of patterns recognized by neural networks, whether it’s a biological one or an algorithm.” In this model, consciousness is a cumulative process. It builds gradually, like increasing layers of mud gradually hardening into rock or the hum of engines becoming audible. In the words of the philosopher Daniel Dennett: You can be “sort of” conscious. Blackford doesn’t seem as convinced that consciousness could be “emergent.” “I guess in a sense, it must be,” he says. “But in what sense? ‘Slipperiness’ is an emergent property. Slipperiness is inherent in the nature of physics; if you put certain kinds of stuff together at a certain level, what comes of it is you get matter that acts in certain ways we call ‘slippery.’ There’s nothing about slipperiness that’s not deducible from fundamental physical laws.” “We can’t explain consciousness in the same way,” he says. “That’s our big problem. If it is emergent, it’s got to be emergent in a much stronger sense, and there’s got to be some further law that we don’t know as to how it emerges.” In other words: You can write a recipe for slipperiness; before you even put all the ingredients together, you know what you’re going to get. We don’t have all the ingredients down to predict consciousness yet. “We’re a long way from knowing even where consciousness emerges along the evolutionary path. Is an owl conscious? A lizard? It’s very hard to do an experiment on that, because an oyster can’t tell you, ‘Yeah, I’m feeling kind of a pain there,’ you know?” We can’t really talk about consciousness directly: We can only track it through the triangulation of metaphors like the Chinese Room and Plato’s Cave. Duncan proposes another: “If you record a live symphony with digital tools and you play it back at home, over your killer digital stereo system, there’s no debate that you are experiencing music. There’s also no illusion that you are experiencing music directly from a live source. “But it’s getting pretty close, and some people would say, ‘Who cares? You’re having an authentic experience that is organic to you, and it’s coming from a synthetic source. Does it really matter?’ My guess is it won’t.”

Are all pharmaceuticals designed for population control?

Monday, September 24, 2018 by: S.D. Wells

(Natural News) What’s the fourth leading cause of death in the United States? Don’t guess heart attacks, cancer, respiratory disease, strokes, diabetes, or traffic accidents. It’s death by prescription. That’s right, doctors in America are pushing “legal” drugs and people are taking them as prescribed and still falling off like flies. On average every year in America, there are about 40,000 deaths from motor vehicle wrecks, another 40,000 from firearm-related deaths, and then there are nearly 130,000 drug overdose deaths. Now, we know what you’re thinking. It’s just a bunch of suicides and junkies taking too many hard core street drugs. Nope. Wrong. The CDC attributes the massive spike in overdose deaths to our nation’s exploding opioid addiction. Could that be the main reason the U.S. is still engaged in a “war” in Afghanistan? The poppy farming and distribution has also massively spiked since “W” Bush invaded the world’s home to heroin production. Now, Big Pharma in the United States is one huge cabal, and the drug dealers are medical doctors who scribble their signature on a piece of paper that propels one of the most dangerous addictions on planet earth – diluted heroin. Two of every three Americans takes at least one prescribed drug regularly – all experimental “prescription” chemicals that are extremely dangerous New drug approvals are at an all-time high. They’re fast tracked through the FDA (Fraud and Death Administration) and stamped for approval by the pharma mafia who participate in the FDA’s revolving door – back and forth from the cabal (Merck, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, Eli Lilly, Sanofi, Bayer, Bristol Myers Squibb, etc) to approving drugs that make them filthy rich. Nobody gets busted for insider trading at the FDA or working for Big Pharma. The power of the elements: Discover Colloidal Silver Mouthwash with quality, natural ingredients like Sangre de Drago sap, black walnut hulls, menthol crystals and more. Zero artificial sweeteners, colors or alcohol. Learn more at the Health Ranger Store and help support this news site. As the opioid overdose epidemic sweeps across America, killing children, teens, young adults, rich folks, old folks, and anybody who partakes, health care providers make no attempt to regulate the abuse, in fact, they perpetuate it. Doctors and pharmacists alike cross-prescribe drugs for conditions that the drugs aren’t even tested or marketed for, if that even mattered in the first place. Doctors prescribe more drugs to treat the horrific side effects of the drugs patients are already addicted to and dying from. People take their friend’s prescribed drugs, visit multiple doctors, then deal prescription drugs at school and college. The FDA can’t even keep up with all the adverse events reported, and when people are prescribed a dozen different medications, nobody knows what the hell is really wrong with them anymore. Prescription drugs are a prescription for an early death, just as the quack allopathic “doctors ordered” In 2018, 130,000 people will die as a result of taking medications as prescribed by their doctor. These are supposedly medical professionals who are just winging it now. Even though they all went to medical school for eight years, all they do is scribble out multiple prescriptions for experimental concoctions. Unless you have a deep wound or a broken bone, you might as well be writing your own epitaph — and will when you start taking prescription pharmaceuticals, because you’re heading full steam towards an early grave, and there’s no predicting how quickly that surprise might arrive. The U.S. government can’t afford to pay everyone the social security money they earned their entire hard-working lives, and it’s no longer part of the master plan anyway. The country is in debt $20 trillion dollars and counting. Massive inflation is on the way. Besides organic food, most American food is poisoned with pesticides, fluoride, GMOs, artificial flavoring, synthetic coloring, and processed until it’s all void of nutrition. Hospital food will kill you all by itself, if the medications and the superbugs (MRSA and CRE) don’t get to you first. Vaccines are loaded with mercury, aluminum, embalming fluid for the dead (formaldehyde), blood from other animals including human abortions, E. coli (seriously, they are), and genetically modified organisms. Let’s face it folks, prescription medications and vaccines are weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). It’s all about reducing the world’s population, and the formula is toxic food followed by toxic medicine, including vaccines By far, the most deaths (about 2,500 per week) and hospitalizations are occurring from pharmaceuticals that are properly prescribed by physicians and taken “as directed.” This does not include people who die from prescribing errors, self-medicating, or overdosing. The most drastic, dire warnings called “Black Box” warnings, only come out seven years after FDA-approved drugs start killing people off in big numbers. Big Pharma wants to make their billions before settling court cases in the millions. It’s all about the money and taking people “out” early. No drugs are removed from the market until chronic carnage has already taken place. Only a few drugs have ever been pulled from the market. Do you remember the Vioxx scandal? People were dying from strokes and heart attacks from Merck’s blockbuster painkiller. Then there was the killer diet drug called Meridia. The irony is that nearly all chronic ailments, diseases and disorders now prominent in America are caused by eating processed food daily. Then, the “sheeple” are prescribed deadly drugs and it doesn’t even matter if they take them “as recommended” by their M.D. quacks. Got pain? Got anxiety? Got depression? Try eating organic food, drinking real spring water, and visiting a Naturopath Physician. Unless you plan on being another zombie suffering from brittle bones, mutated cells and dementia, you might want to veer clear of prescription drugs – the fourth leading killer in the United States of America. Just check the Pharma Death Clock if you have any doubts. Want to learn the cure for 97 percent of diseases? Watch this video of Dr. John Bergman.

A “Perfect Storm” Is Surrounding One of the Worst Ebola Outbreaks in History in the DRC Right Now

by Daisy Luther

An Ebola outbreak that has been going on in the Democratic Republic of Congo since August is already one of the worst in history – the 7th worst to be precise – and it looks like it may spiral out of control. Peter Salama, WHO Deputy Director-General for Emergency Preparedness and Response, called the situation “a perfect storm.” Unrest and war in the region combined with community resistance and mistrust of medical personnel are making it difficult for the World Health Organization to get a handle on the outbreak. Dr. Salama said: “We are now extremely concerned, that several factors may be coming together over the next weeks to months to create a potential perfect storm. A perfect storm of active conflict, limiting our ability to access civilians, distress by segments of the community, already traumatized by decades of conflict and of murder… …We’ve seen attacks now on August 24, September 3, 9, 11, 16, 21 and most recently and most dramatically September 22 in the city itself of Beni,” he said. He said that Beni was the base for the agency’s base for the “entire operation.” (source) The outbreak is based in North Kivu, which is on the border of Uganda and Rwanda. Violence has displaced more than a million people in the area, and there have been a number of brutal machete attacks against civilians. Things got so bad that the WHO was forced to cease their operations for an entire week while the Ebola virus spread. One of the armed groups in DRC which pose a threat to civilians and the international response to Ebola, the ADF – Allied Democratic Forces – has sufficient military capacity to ambush blue helmets from the UN’a Stabilization Mission in DRC (MONUSCO) and government forces – the FARDC. “The ADF in particular has enormous capabilities,” Dr Salama said. “They’ve been able to overrun entire FARDC-bases in and around Beni, they’ve been able to ambush (UN) forces.” (source) ADF is an Islamist group that is a serious threat to the Congolese government as well as relief workers. If WHO and its partners had to leave North Kivu … we would have grave concerns that this outbreak would not be able to be well controlled in the coming weeks or months.” (source) But it isn’t only violence and war that are factors in this “perfect storm.” Local traditions are making it the Ebola outbreak more likely to spread. The local traditions in the Congo are making relief efforts more difficult. …“We’ve heard this morning, that that ‘ville morte’, which was yesterday, has now been extended right through to Friday of this week,” he said, “which basically means for the UN family, including WHO, a lockdown in Beni. Our operations are in effect suspended.” …Butembo could also declare a “ville morte” in coming days in sympathy with the people of Beni, he said, potentially increasing the chances of the situation deteriorating rapidly. “If we do see unsafe burials that can’t be responded to and symptomatic people that can’t be accessed, we can see this situation deteriorating very quickly,” Dr. Salama said. A “ville morte” is a period of mourning. Local politicians are manipulating the public so they’re afraid to be treated. Meanwhile, it’s an election year in the area and local politicians are taking full advantage of this crisis. In addition to many people’s fear of Ebola, the WHO senior official explained that the situation was being further complicated by local politicians who “exploited and manipulated” them prior to upcoming elections. Social media reaction to the outbreak was also adding to a “range of conspiracy theories”, Dr Salama said, adding that people have been “actively fleeing” health-workers, including in places where there have been a large number of cases in recent weeks. (source) “Pockets of resistance” against treatment, fueled by the politicians, are making it difficult to get a handle on new cases. Terrified people are running away from workers into areas that are inaccessible due to security concerns. We also see a very concerning trend. That resistance, driven by quite natural fear of this terrifying disease, is starting to be exploited by local politicians, and we’re very concerned in the run up to elections, projected for December, that exploitation… will gather momentum and make it very difficult to root out the last cases of Ebola.” Some people were fleeing into the forest to escape Ebola follow-up treatment and checks, sometimes moving hundreds of kilometers, he said… …social media posts were conflating Ebola with criticism of the DRC government and the United Nations and “a range of conspiracy theories”, which could put health workers at risk. (source) This fear of treatment is something we’ve seen numerous times. During the last outbreak, families literally broke into treatment facilities and took their ailing family members who were diagnosed with active Ebola to prayer meetings, where they died in the most contagious stages of the disease. The disease is now threatening Uganda Thus far, there are no cases of Ebola in Uganda, but worry has spiked as a case was confirmed near the border at a popular destination for Ugandans. Tchomia landing site is the closest Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) landing site to Ugandan districts in the Bunyoro sub-region On Friday, Ituri province vice governor Keta Upar said in a statement that the latest Ebola case had been reported in Tchomia. Tchomia is one of the busiest fish markets in eastern DRC and attracts several Ugandan businessmen from the landing sites of Butiaba, Walukoba, Kijangi, Kaiso,Sebigoro, Nkondo, Ndaiga, Ntoroko, Kyehoro and Fofo from the districts of Hoima, Buliisa, Kikuube, Ntoroko and Kagadi. Usually, Ugandan businessmen cross to Tchomia market on a weekly basis – posing a big threat that the Ebola outbreak can easily be brought into the country. Tchoima fish market operates every Thursday. (source) Ugandan officials have stepped up screening at the border. Screening of people crossing from DRC for signs and symptoms of Ebola is being conducted at official and unofficial points of entry. Communities have been sensitised about Ebola and are vigilant and reporting any suspicious cases for investigation. (source) Here’s a map that shows the area and where the case was diagnosed. photo credit: Uganda New Vision It’s encouraging to see that Uganda is not allowing political correctness to sway them from doing the right thing for their people. We can only hope that the United States will do the same in a time where deadly diseases can spread so easily. Physical check-ups of people from areas where epidemics are out of control should be the norm, not a unique thing that is protested loudly.  At least 100 people have died. The current outbreak is the 7th largest in history. In the past two months, 150 cases have been confirmed or “probable” and as of Sept. 23, 100 people had died. The worst-case scenario is that the Ebola virus continues to spread in North Kivu and moves across the border to other countries. If that happens, we could be facing a nightmare like the 2014-15 Ebola epidemic, during which more than 11,000 people died. The only good news: This time we have an effective vaccine. (source) As of Monday, 80% of Ebola contacts and three suspected cases could not be reached for disease monitoring. Additional resources Are You Prepped for a Pandemic?

28,000 Pastors Are Training To Keep You Calm On Your Way to a FEMA Camp

By karen on April 3, 2016

Many people in the independent media have reported that an estimated 28,000-100.000 pastors were recruited by FEMA/DHS, as part of the Clergy Response Team, and that their initial and primary training was to tell their flock to obey the DHS version of Romans 13. Romans 13, in the King James version of the Bible, begins: “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” Romans 13:1 What is not being widely reported is that the training is still going on. The mayor of Roanoke, VA. is calling for the use of FEMA camps to house Muslim immigrants. How long will they be held? When will the Muslims be released? And who will take their place? We know that answer to the last question. Some pastors are speaking out and here is what they are saying. The Perversion of Romans 13 Many of us have been quick to point that this bastardization of the Romans 13 is designed to force compliance to government edicts who might not otherwise comply. Certainly all governments are not established by God. Were the governments of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, all ordained by God? What about George the III? Most people in the independent media think that this is the extent of the threat posed by the existence of the Clergy Response Teams. Romans 13 Is Just the Tip of the Iceberg I have discovered that the Clergy Response Teams are taking on much more nefarious duties and it can be accurately stated that the pastors associated with the DHS/FEMA/Clergy Response Teams are going to be doing a whole lot more than encouraging their flock to obey the government. Pastor Mansfield attended several briefings and he could barely believe his ears. He learned of the government’s plan to enact martial law as well as to implement forced population relocations. Mansfield emphasized that when martial law is enacted, the enforcement would be immediate. In other words, family members will be separated from each other and part of the training that the clergy received was how to comfort separated family members. Pastor Mansfield told me that the pastors were trained by FEMA to go to homes where people refused to be relocated by the authorities and their immediate job was to convince the reluctant to willingly go to the relocation camps. Ostensibly, this was to be done in lieu of sending in the SWAT teams. I asked Mansfield if FEMA camps were real and he stated that much of the clergy training focused around this scenario of pastors operating within the forced relocation centers. The main goal of a pastor assigned was to bring order and encourage compliance with DHS requests, hence, the emphasis on Romans 13. Disturbingly, Pastor Mansfield reiterated several times that the number one job of these pastors is to calm down the detainees and encourage their compliance within the people’s new surroundings. Pastor Mansfield also stated that pastors will be utilized as informants. This violates the legal privilege of confidentiality between pastor and church-goer, that is currently recognized by law. All church-goers can no longer trust the sanctity of personal confessions and revelations made to pastors and priests. This one illegal act by DHS completely undermines the Christian Church in America! DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE CLERGY RESPONSE TEAM WILL BE UTILIZED IN THE EXTRACTION PROCESS OF AMERICANS, TO FORCED INTERNMENT/RESETTLEMENT CAMPS, THESE “TEAM” MEMBERS REPRESENT THE BEST CLUE WE HAVE AS TO WHEN MARTIAL LAW WILL BE CARRIED OUT. I strongly suspect that the Clergy Response Teams are a part of UWEX 16 and simply listed as DHS personnel. With a minimum of 28,000 pastors being a part of this dastardly plan, we need to all put our pastors under our watchful eye. Is your Pastor disappearing for unexplained periods of time? Network with people you know from other churches. Are your respective Pastors disappearing at the same time? Can you account for your Pastor’s travels? Last year, at Baylor University, Christians from all over the Southwest came together at Baylor’s football stadium for fellowship at an event referred to as the “Gathering“. Given the political climate in Texas, I am a little more than suspicious that this event did not bring together several Clergy Response Team members for additional training under NOVAD. Again, we need to be putting our Pastors under scrutiny because we have 28,000 Judases in our midst. Clergy Response Team Members Are Intimidated and Threatened by DHS Mansfield told me that the pastors in America are being coerced to participate because when an emergency is declared, no pastor, who does not have the “FEMA-trained government badge” will be allowed to be in a declared “emergency” SAFE area. Pastor Mansfield also felt very strongly this was the government’s way of removing Jesus from America’s landscape and set the stage for the ushering in of a new-age religion. In fact, Mansfield shared with me documentation which demonstrated DHS’s attempt to remove Jesus from the entire internment/resettlement process. The pastors were told not to quote Scripture. The DHS document which was prepared for the pastors clearly stated that Scripture had been used to “oppress” people in the past and the presenters strongly discouraged its use. Please see the following excerpt from one of the DHS training manuals: Healing Scripture and Prayer In the Pastoral Crisis Intervention “During a time of crisis people do go through a “crisis of faith.” Sometime quick mention of God and scripture may not be helpful. As we all know the Scripture has been used to oppress, dominate and at the same time used for healing and reconciliation- renewing of relationship with God and people. If the pastor senses it is appropriate to use the scripture and prayer, it must carefully be done for healing of victims not to uphold pastoral authority.” (Page 14) In other words, all legitimate pastoral authority was abrogated by the pastors who participated in the roundup of American citizens. Also on page 14 of the same training document, pastors were admonished to avoid “Unhealthy God talk….” Specifically pastors are ordered to avoid using references to God when helping people cope with the loss of a loved one: “4. God must have needed him/her more than you.” “5. God never gives more than we can handle.“  Conclusion Doesn’t this strike you as odd? DHS recruits Pastors but will not let them preach the Word of God? Can we think of anyone or anything else that might support this goal? THINK HILLARY CLINTON! She will become known as the FEMA Camp President! This article first appeared by Dave Hodges of the commonsense show

Former Google bigwig launches AI “church” that positions technology as GOD

Monday, September 24, 2018 by: Isabelle Z.

(Natural News) It might be tempting to crack jokes about today’s smartphone-obsessed youth seeming to worship their devices, but for one man, the concept of technology as a deity is reaching disturbing heights. Former Google executive Anthony Levandowski has filed IRS paperwork to establish an official religion devoted to technology. Not only will this bizarre religion worship scientific progress, but it will also worship artificial intelligence and create a “godhead.” According to his filing, this new non-profit religious organization, which will be known as “Way of the Future,” will “develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead [to] contribute to the betterment of society.” The papers show Levandowski as the “dean,” or leader, of the new religion and the CEO of a nonprofit corporation that he has set up for the purposes of running it. According to the Way of the Future’s website, the goal is creating a respectful and peaceful transition from humans being in charge of the planet to humans and machines governing it together. It will also fund research that will help to create the “divine AI.” The site goes on to explain that as technology gets closer to being able to surpass the abilities of humans, the church wants to educate people and ease the transition to this new way of being, adding: “In ‘recent’ years, we have expanded our concept of rights to both sexes, minority groups and even animals, let’s make sure we find a way for ‘machines’ to get rights too.” Maybe he wants people to be able to marry their computers?

As machines grow smarter than us, however, he feels that they will take the reins from humans. He believes that the “divine AI” will have another godlike quality, omniscience. After all, our reliance on technology and use of cell phones and data centers mean that everything there is to know about us can be accessed by those with the technological know-how. Levandowski said that because AI is smarter than us, it will ultimately decide how it is going to evolve, but we can decide the way we want to act around it. For his part, he would like “the machine” to “think” of us humans as beloved elders that it needs to respect and take care of. New religion will recruit members in California The religion aims to establish working relationships with leaders in the AI industry and will use community outreach to recruit members. They will conduct educational programs and worships in the Bay Area in the next few months, according to the filings. Levandowski told WIRED that he opted to make it a church instead of a think tank because he wanted everyone to participate, regardless of their technological skills. He also believed it would help avoid suspicions he’s doing this as a way of making money, as he will not receive any salary from the church. The IRS granted the church a tax-exempt status in August. Skepticism about the concept aside, the religion’s “dean” is also questionable. Levandowski was an engineer behind Google’s self-driving car project, Waymo, before quitting to start his own autonomous trucking company. He sold the firm he created, Otto, to Uber last July for more than $680 million. He was later sued by Waymo over claims he downloaded files and trade secrets prior to his resignation and shared them with Uber. Uber later fired him for his refusal to cooperate in an internal investigation. Sources include: PJMedia.com KansasCity.com

"We Are Bigger than Your Jesus!"

Extremist Persecution of Christians, March 2018

by Raymond Ibrahim September 23, 2018 at 5:00 am

If any measure of peace between Muslims and Christians is to prevail, no church can exist in the village, local Muslims said. "The only houses of worship that can ever be built in this village are Muslim places of worship for Allah." — Watan International, Egypt. "The Al Shabaab are now hunting down the children in Mogadishu, and we have moved the care center to a bit safer location.... The children look devastated and malnourished, so we as a secret church do appeal to our brothers and sisters in the free world to consider extending a hand to these persecuted children."Pastor of an underground church, Somalia. "[I]t seems that the Muslims intentionally wanted to pick a fight with us." — Pastor of King Jesus Church, Pakistan. Muslim Slaughter of Christians Pakistan: In a Lahore hospital, a throng of Muslim doctors, security guards, and medical staff beat Christian family membersone to death — because they tried to prevent another doctor from beating their pregnant sister. According to Anil Saleem, the pregnant woman's brother, once they took her to the emergency labor ward at Services Hospital: "Kiran [the pregnant woman] went to the doctor on duty, Dr. Saira, who was playing with her cell phone while sipping on tea. Dr. Saira told Kiran to wait outside until she finished her tea. We waited for some time, but since Kiran was experiencing severe pain, she again went inside the ward to request for immediate attention." The doctor instantly began cursing the pregnant woman for bothering her. "When my sister protested against the rude behavior, the doctor started slapping her, throwing her on the floor. She asked my sister how dare a Chuhri [a derogatory term for Christians] question her order?" On hearing the commotion, Anil, his brother, brother-in-law and a cousin entered the ward. Once she saw them, Dr. Saira shouted to the other doctors and security guards to lock the ward's doors from the inside and "teach these Christians a lesson," continued Anil: "Around 15 to 20 paramedical staff and security guards and eight to 10 young doctors ... lunged at us with iron rods, chairs, leather belts and other things and started beating us." The men were severely injured. Anil's brother, Sunil, died for lack of medical attention: "Most of the doctors fled after the incident, while those who were present paid no attention to our cries to help our dying brother." Sunil leaves behind a wife and four children, the eldest ten, the youngest barely three months old. Although the assaulted Christian family filed charges with police, no one was arrested. Instead, the police "wanted to take us to the same hospital where we had been subjected to torture and also lost our brother," Anil said. "Moreover, we have registered a murder case against the doctors and other staff members, so how could the police even think that the hospital staff will treat us fairly?" Speaking of this incident, a human rights lawmaker said, "It's shocking that even doctors, who are supposedly educated and have taken an oath to save lives regardless of caste, color or faith, have resorted to such acts of religious intolerance and violence." "I am still trying to digest the fact that doctors took the life of an innocent man," said another rights activist. "What hope can one have for justice to the family if police have been unable to arrest even one of the accused?" In a separate incident, in a move criticized by Christian activist groups, after "giving them the benefit of doubt," a court freed 20 Muslims suspected of immolating a Christian couple, says a report, adding: "Shahzad and Shama were burned alive in a brick kiln by a frenzied lynch mob ─ incited by announcements made from mosques in the area ─ ranging between 400-1,000 people for their alleged role in the desecration of the Holy Quran in Nov 2014.... [T]he woman, a mother of three, was pregnant at the time." Nigeria: After a group of Christians tried to rescue two girls who were earlier kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam, Muslims, some armed with assault rifles, rampaged through the Christian town of the would-be rescuers. The Muslims murdered 12 Christians, wounded another 20, and torched Christian property. Many of the slain were members of Pentecostal, Baptist, Assemblies of God and Seventh-day Adventist churches. "The case was reported to the police, and the girls were not rescued, so some Christians decided to rescue the girls, but the Muslims in the town attacked them," explained a local. "The Muslims did not just attack the Christians that went to rescue the girls, but also went around town attacking Christians they sighted and burned houses belonging to Christians." Another local said, "This is the practice by Muslims in Kaduna state. They abduct small Christian girls and force them to become Muslims, and when Christians reject this, they attack them ...." Separately, armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen murdered 20 Christians, including a pastor. According to the report: "The killings reportedly came in retaliation for an unspecified attack on Fulani families by young men from the predominantly Christian Bachama tribe who have formed militias in response to violence by Islamic extremist group Boko Haram and heavily-armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen." Egypt: Although the military said it was suicide, a young Christian conscript "was in fact killed by his commanding officer," says a report. Matthew Samir Habib, 22, was pronounced dead on March 14. The military told his father, Samir, that Matthew had shot himself — apparently twice. According to a relative: "Matthew told us many times before that the colonel in his military unit, Ayman Mohamad Ahmed El Kabeer, was always persecuting and insulting him because of his religious identity. Matthew, however, was patient and endured it all. His friends from the same unit told us that there had been a quarrel between Colonel El Kabeer and him on the day of the incident, when he had objected to something the colonel said." Habib is the latest of about nine Christian soldiers to be murdered in recent times by Muslim officers and soldiers on account of their faith. Iraq: A few days after gunmen shot Samir Younis, 28, a Christian father of two, four other men broke into the house of Hisham al-Maskouny, a Christian doctor, and stabbed him to death on March 10. When his wife and her mother tried to intervene, they too were slaughtered. Although the home was looted, local Christians say they were targeted because of their religious identity. Discussing these murders, Father Biyos Qasha said, "This means that there is no place for Christians. We are seen as a lamb to be killed at any time." Others in Baghdad voiced the same sentiment: "As a Christian, life is good so long as you don't have enemies," said one resident. "(Also you shouldn't) bring attention to yourself... I feel depressed because of what happened for Hisham and his family, even (though) it is something that has happened so often since 2003, but it still makes me sad."   Somalia: Orphans whose Christian parents are killed for their faith are growing in number and in need of care, said the pastor of an underground church. "Last year we lost a Christian family killed by the Al Shabaab, and the number of children rose from 30 to 35. The Al Shabaab are now hunting down the children in Mogadishu, and we have moved the care center to a bit safer location.... The children look devastated and malnourished, so we as a secret church do appeal to our brothers and sisters in the free world to consider extending a hand to these persecuted children." Muslim Attacks on Christian Churches Turkey: A report briefly notes that on March 6, a man in his forties opened fire on the Saint Maria Catholic Church in Trabzon. It was just the latest in several attacks on the church. Less than a month earlier, a makeshift bomb was thrown at the church's garden; in 2016 Muslims crying "Allahu Akbar" vandalized the church, using sledgehammers among other objects; in 2011 the church was targeted and threatened for its visible cross, and in 2006 its priest was slaughtered during an armed attack. Indonesia: Less than a month after a radicalized student stormed a church and started hacking at its worshippers and statues with a machete, six unknown persons firebombed St. Zechariah Church shortly after midnight on March 8. According to the report: "...a group of six vandals blew a hole through the wall of the church, consecrated just last March 4 by Msgr. Sudarso. The strangers then destroyed a statue of the Virgin and stacked some chairs setting them on fire. The noise woke the faithful who live nearby. They rushed to extinguish the flames, while the thugs fled from the place of worship." Pakistan: On March 8, around 15 armed Muslims, led by local strongman Muhammad Sharif, stormed the King Jesus Church during Sunday service; they terrorized and beat the worshippers and injured at least seven. According to the pastor: "Some of our church elders were trying to install a flex signboard in connection with the upcoming Easter festival on the wall in front of the church but they were stopped by Sharif's sons. Sharif is a local tough who has previously grabbed a piece of the Christian cemetery in our colony and built a cattle shed on the graves.... Suspicions also arose when these Muslim youths started hanging out near the church during service timings and began teasing our girls." Things came to a head when Sharif's sons accosted some elders for trying to post a Christian sign on church property. "The elders tried to reason with the youths," said the pastor, "but it seems that the Muslims intentionally wanted to pick a fight with us. The Muslims snatched the church's sign and tore it into pieces." When "one of our church elders told the Muslims that they had desecrated biblical verses inscribed on the flex sign," they retorted "We are bigger than your Jesus." It was then that the Muslim youth stormed the church compound and beat the worshippers. "Some of them whipped out their weapons and opened fire on the church members, who ran to save themselves. I immediately telephoned the police and headed out to try and defuse the situation. However, I was also beaten up, my service robe torn and my mobile phone smashed to the ground. I think we were fortunate that none of us suffered a fatal bullet injury during the clash." In a separate incident, on Sunday, March 18, an armed Muslim mob attacked another Christian church for having a banner related to Easter hanging outside the building. Seven Christians were left needing medical attention. According to the pastor: "I was conducting a worship service when [a group of men, including a government official], equipped with firearms, barged into the church. As soon as they entered, [two of them] forcibly took down gospel verses written on banners, while shouting abusive words, tore them into pieces and then denigrated them by throwing them down." Finally, on the pretext of a land dispute, a Muslim mob beat five Christians for trying to build a wall to protect their church. According to the pastor of Pakistan Gospel Assemblies Church: "Our church elder, George Masih, who was 70, was overseeing masons and laborers who were constructing the wall. We were praying [inside the church] when we heard shouting and yelling and, when we rushed outside, we saw about 20 men, armed with clubs and axes, [who] were beating Masih and others... Then our women tried to intervene but they too were beaten and their clothes were torn." Algeria: Three more churches were shut down. First, local authorities in Oran closed two churches "amidst growing pressure on Christians in the Maghreb country," says a March 1 report. "The two churches ... were sealed off by police on Tuesday, 27 February." A separate report from March 22 says that the "village church in Azagher, near the town of Akbou, was forced to stop all activities on 2 March. The church had been running for over six years..... The church is the fourth forced to close in the past four months." Commenting on this uptick of church closures, an advocacy group said that they were part of a "coordinated campaign of intensified action against churches by the governing authorities." In a different event, two Christian brothers were fined $900 each for transporting more than 50 Bibles in their car. The brothers said the Bibles were for church use but authorities insisted that they were meant for evangelizing. Egypt: Muslims blocked the legalization of yet another church, this time in the village of al-Tout. According to the report: "The small 10-year old church of the Holy Virgin, which serves some 400 Coptic villagers, was built as a village house in the midst of a collection of some 70 Copts' houses, and was used for worship even though it had never been licensed as a church. This was a very common situation in Egypt: Copts resorted to worshipping in unlicensed churches owing to the dire need of the growing population and the near-impossibility of obtaining license to build a church." Then a celebrated law dedicated to easing restrictions on churches passed in 2016, and the al-Toud church was among the very first churches to be inspected by a committee for approval. But then "village Muslims got wind of the matter," says the report. "Egged on by calls broadcast through mosque microphones in the village, thousands of them held angry demonstrations against there being a church in the village. Screaming 'Allahu Akbar' ('Allah is the Greatest') and angry slogans against the church, they attacked the Copts' houses with stones and rushed to hastily build a wall blocking access to the street leading to the church and, in the process, placing the Copts' homes under siege. When the committee members arrived, they were forced away under the pretext that there was no church in that place." If any measure of peace between Muslims and Christians is to prevail, no church can exist in the village, local Muslims said, adding, "The only houses of worship that can ever be built in this village are Muslim places of worship for Allah." A separate report offers more general information, including why the "decision to legalize 53 churches did little to impress Egypt's Christian minority. One of the reasons is that they are just a fraction of the unlicensed churches in Egypt..." Also, reason, according to a human rights activist: "The Christians are afraid to pray at hundreds of churches ... because they know that the prayers will incite the radicals and cause bloodshed. There is total frustration among Christians because of the failure of the government to legalize the churches." The report adds that, "although the population of the Christian minority is estimated at 9 million ... there are only 6,000 churches in the country. Many Christians must travel long distances to reach a church." And although the majority of Christians live in the more rural parts of southern Egypt, about 150 villages there "do not have access to a church at all and most of Egypt's churches are concentrated in Cairo, Giza province and Alexandria." Muslim Attacks on Christian Freedom and Dignity Indonesia: Two Christians were publicly flogged in front of a mosque for playing a children's game said to violate Islamic law. According to the report: "The game [unspecified] is seen by authorities in the conservative Muslim province [of Banda Aceh] as 'gambling' and therefore it violates Islamic Sharia law. Some 300 people jeered and held up their mobile phones to record when Dahlan Silitonga, 61, and Tjia Nyuk Hwa, 45, were flogged six and seven times respectively. The pair had been arrested along with a third man for playing a game at a children's entertainment complex that lets users exchange coins for prizes or vouchers, including cash. They were among five people—including a couple whipped two dozen times each for showing affection in public—receiving between six and 24 lashes with a rattan stick." Nigeria: After kidnapping 110 school girls in Dapchi, the Islamic jihadi organization, Boko Haram, ended up releasing them all, except for one Christian girl, Liya, because she refused to convert to Islam. According to her father, "they said she is a Christian and that is why they cannot release her. They said if she wants to be released" she must "become a Muslim and she said she will never become a Muslim." After all the other girls were released and returned to their parents, he described the mood in Dapchi as one of "jubilation," whereas "I am very sad but I am also jubilating too because my daughter did not denounce Christ." Egypt: Magdy Farag Samir, 49, a Christian teacher, was arrested on March 14 and charged with "contempt for religion" — more colloquially known as the blasphemy law — three months after he administered a multiple choice test revolving around prophet Muhammad. This outraged some Muslim students and parents. "Many Copts are being charged with contempt of religion and jailed for nothing...because the revolution dropped the Muslim Brotherhood but left their ideology unchanged," explained a local human rights activist in the context of this case. "Egypt's law of contempt of religion only applies to one side — Islam. Crimes of contempt in Egypt only refer to contempt of Islam." Uganda: A Muslim family attacked a male family member with boiling oil for becoming Christian. A week earlier, on Sunday March 4, Gobera Bashir, 27, had accompanied a friend to church in a different village; during service he accepted Christ and a pastor gave him a Bible, adding, "Be cautious when reading the Bible, since your family is a Muslim family." Four days later his young sister walked into his room while he was reading the Bible. "Why are you reading the Bible? You know our family only reads the Koran," she said. He replied that he was merely trying to gain knowledge, but word soon spread that he was in possession of a Bible. On March 10, around 9:30 pm, a group of people began knocking on the door of his home. When he refused to answer, they broke in. "As they entered the house, they found me in the sitting room and began tying my arms and legs with robes and shouting, 'Shame! Shame! You are bringing a bad omen to the family with your bad Christian religion. Our family is a Muslim family.'" Although the men were masked, he determined that some, including his uncle, were related to him. "There and then," continues Gobera "one of them poured a hot liquid from a thermos flask on me, and then they dragged me out of the house" to a nearby swamp. "As they pulled me, I felt a lot of pain and screamed for help as one of the attackers blocked my mouth, and there I lost consciousness. I only gained consciousness around midnight." A nearby Christian family took him in. He received medical treatment at a health center for four days. Burns covered 40% of his body. Most were on his legs and buttocks, caused when his persecutors forced him to sit on the scorching oil. Saudi Arabia: The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom issued a statement on March 24 saying that it "is disappointed to find inflammatory content in Saudi textbooks that was previously thought to have been removed." A study conducted by the commission "uncovered content promoting violence and hatred toward religious minorities and others." "While the Saudi government has been engaged in textbook reform for the last 15 years, the presence of these passages makes clear how little progress has been made and highlights an immediate need for the Saudi government to more seriously address this issue, as well as the exportation of these textbooks internationally, as a part of its ambitious reform process." Previous studies have found that Saudi school textbooks regularly dehumanize non-Muslims, Christians and Jews chief among them. Raymond Ibrahim, author of the new book, Sword and Scimitar, Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West, is a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute and a Judith Rosen Friedman Fellow at the Middle East Forum. About this Series While not all, or even most, Muslims are involved, persecution of Christians by Muslim extremists is growing. The report posits that such Muslim persecution is not random but rather systematic, and takes place irrespective of language, ethnicity, or location.

World War Looms Over Syria

31,130 views Israeli News Live Streamed live on Sep 25, 2018

Russia vows to send the S-300 defense missile system to Syria as the US and its allys threaten retaliation. But why is a defense system such an issue, does Syria have no right to self defense? Also the US is building military bases right on the border of Russia what will happen if Russia builds a base in Cuba? Cold War I think not this time it looks more like a Hot War.

Military camera can detect tripwires, booby traps and camouflaged targets in PITCH BLACK after thermal imaging breakthrough that could make night vision clearer than ever before

Camera senses polarised light which means hidden objects can be clearly seen

it shows images in such detail that soldiers can identify specific individuals

It also helps them differentiate between man-made and natural objects

A light wave that is vibrating in more than one plane is called unpolarised light

However, polarised light is when light waves vibrate at random angles

Different objects polarise light to different degrees

By Phoebe Weston For Mailonline Published: 08:43 EDT, 26 September 2018 | Updated: 10:46 EDT, 26 September 2018

An amazing new type of thermal imaging camera could revolutionise the battlefield as it means soldiers can see objects in high detail – even if it's pitch black. The camera can sense polarised light which means hidden objects such as tripwires, booby traps and camouflaged targets can be clearly seen for the first time. It shows images in such detail that soldiers will even be able to detect and identify specific individuals, military researchers say. It also helps them differentiate between man-made objects like trucks and aircraft (which emit more polarised radiation) and natural radiation that is emitted from trees and bushes. The research is being led by experimental physicist Dr Kristan Gurton and electronics engineer Dr Sean Hu for the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL). According to Dr Gurton, all objects that have a non-zero temperature emit thermal radiation in the infrared portion of the spectrum. The 'intensity' of that radiation is proportional to its temperature. Researchers say thermal radiation is always present in the environment regardless of whether it's day or night. The army already uses thermal cameras to 'see' objects that are hidden in the dark. However, in addition to the 'intensity' of the infrared light, there is another characteristic of light that is often ignored when it comes to imaging: polarisation state. 'Researchers have known for about 30 years that manmade objects emit thermal radiation that is partially polarised, e.g., trucks, aircraft, buildings, vehicles, etc., and that natural objects like grass, soil, trees and bushes tend to emit thermal radiation that exhibits very little polarisation,' Dr Gurton said. A light wave that is vibrating in more than one plane is called unpolarised light. For example light from the sun or a candle is unpolarised.

Three Phases of Surveillance to Totalitarianism: It is Happening Now

Jeremiah Johnson September 24th, 2018 SHTFplan.com Comments (29) Read by 4,884 people

Over the past year and a half, I’ve written many pieces on the surveillance state and how we are one step away from the inculcation of technological “omniscience” pertaining to control. The objective is not simply “control,” as they have already obtained that for the most part: limiting cash withdrawals from the bank, restricting your movements and business outside of the country, and new laws being created by the day. This latter part is akin to a “tag team” event of WWF: what the feds can’t or won’t do, they “tag” off for the states to accomplish, with local governments following suit. The objective is total control: over everything you read, hear, and watch in the (so-called) media, and an eyeball on you in every facet of your life. Mac Slavo released an article on SHTFplan entitled Apple is now giving people trust scores based on their calls and emails on 9/21/18. This is an example of how tech firms in the U.S., in conjunction with one another and other American business entities are instituting social engineering by controlling our communications via social media. The big picture is much more frightening, as this article comes on the heels of another, more insidious occurrence: a nationwide “scoring system” instituted in the largest surveillance state in the world…communist China. On 9/20/18, an article written by Peter Dockrill was released that will really open your eyes when you read it. The piece is entitled China’s Chilling ‘Social Credit System’ is straight out of Dystopian Sci-Fi, and it’s Already Switched On. Here is an excerpt: “China’s Social Credit System – which is expected to be fully operational by 2020 – doesn’t just monitor the nation’s almost 1.4 billion citizens. It’s also designed to control and coerce them, in a gigantic social engineering experiment that some have called the “gamification of trust…assigning an individual trust score to each and every citizen, and to businesses too. According to China’s Communist Party, the system will “allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step.” To pull this off, the unprecedented scheme will harness the immense reach of China’s technological infrastructure: some 200 million CCTV cameras… The idea is these ever-watchful eyes will be hooked up to facial recognition systems, and cross-checked with financial, medical records, and legal records – with the whole apparatus regulated and interpreted by advanced, big-data-crunching AI networks.” The article goes on to tell of how it is already in place: it is just not completely finished. The piece also presents the case of a Chinese journalist who was sidelined and marginalized for criticizing the government. In brief, the system will allow a privileged few to do what they want, and the rest restricted in every portion of their lives, even more than today. Three Phases are evident within this progression of surveillance to totalitarianism. Here they are: Inception and Initial Emplacement: The “new measure” is put into place, eventually becoming widespread and taking root. CCTV cameras started out as simple video cameras in the convenience store, liquor store, bank, and the parking lot to workplaces. Now they sprout up in the intersections, the shopping malls, the cafes, and the bus terminals. This is the beginning of surveillance. Fostered Dependence and Regulation: The ever-present “bogeyman” in our society is the invisible malcontent, labeled as a terrorist, and this creates the “need” for more security and greater surveillance. The sacred goal: to keep everyone “safe,” is a boldfaced lie. The paradigm is shifted, and the senses of the populace are dulled (not very much work in that department) to not even pay the increased surveillance any mind. Over the past two decades, the corporations, the government (federal, state, and local), and the moneyed interests (oligarchs and politicians) have quietly inculcated a cross-linked and cross-functioning surveillance “net” or network…all cameras accessible and tied in to the information systems of the authorities. Authorities: those who are backed by the State and enforce the State’s edicts with firearms. Bio-scanning facial recognition, complete body scanners, and fingerprint recognition are now just a “matter of fact” in airports. Just five years ago, the mobs were ready to storm the TSA with torches and pitchforks for the “affront at having their bodies exposed,” blah, blah, blah, yada, yada. The torches burned out and the pitchforks are back in the garden sheds. Now surveillance is the norm, and it’s backed by regulation. “Phase 2” is the transition from surveillance being present to the creation of the Surveillance State. Total Surveillance: Control, and beyond. We have not reached this phase yet in the United States, but we’re well on our way there. Look to China. China is the model, the template, the “guinea pig” for the totalitarian road map of one world government…in reality, a world of slavery. Kissinger, Bill Gates, Soros, and a plethora of others all laud Communist China as the blueprint for the world state. Remember: Gates has scheduled (with his team of investors) to place 500 satellites in orbit to map the entire globe in real time, by late Spring of next year. When that “omniscient” surveillance is in place, what do you think they’ll do then? What they will do is follow their Malthusian leanings, toward Thomas Malthus’s recommendations for global population reduction in the interests of “saving the planet and its resources.” In reality, to cull the herd, reducing it to a more “manageable” population of masters and slaves, the latter category making up the majority in a world not much different from that of Orwell’s “1984.” The article by Mac Slavo shows what they’re doing in this country at the “micro” level: the efforts being put forth to limit people in their communications via “social media,” and socially engineer the consciousness and actions of the people passively before the active engineering (first by rule of law and then by force) occurs. When that is complete? Look to the past to see what will happen in the future, and the answer is right there. The solution is not that simple, and the more the system emplaces the control, the more difficult it will be to exercise that solution.

A New Era Of Chaos Is Coming To America This Week Former Secret Service Agent Warns: 'If You Don't Have The Spine For What's Coming, Don't Turn On The TV'

- As Julian Assange And Ben Carson Issue Warnings To America And The World

September 25, 2018  By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

In a very important recent story over at the Daily Mail that has been totally censored by the mainstream media, they report that according to President Trump's Housing Secretary Ben Carson, a long-running socialist plot to take over America has been behind the recent Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault allegations. While the mainstream media and big tech will do everything in their power to stifle Carson's claims, quite literally calling anyone who believes them a 'tinfoil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorist', a closer look at Carson's warnings finds not only a shadowy conspiracy that has existed in America for over 100 years, but brings us straight to a cryptic warning recently given by Julian Assange of Wikileaks who eerily stated in his last pre-blackout interview: "This is the last free generation". And while Assange warned of the technological prisons that have been constructed all around us in this age of never-ending surveillance cameras capturing the every move of Americans both out in the world while google and big tech's A.I. captures and records everything going on online, Assange adds in quite the understatement: "It smells a bit like totalitarianism – in some way." You can see Assange's entire last interview before his information blackout began in the first video below from Real.Video. bongino_tweet_2.png And with America now in what promises to be one of the biggest political weeks in this country since the 2016 election with a seat on the US Supreme Court hanging in the balance and a huge revelation awaiting America with the forthcoming declassification of the FISA court documents and the firing/resignation of Assistant US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein further dividing Americans, former US Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino recently warned the American people on twitter to hold on to our hats as the corrupt left are preparing to usher in an entirely new era of chaos and crazy this week. Warning that the extreme left will surely sink to entirely new low levels of depravity with Kavanaugh potentially being voted into the Supreme Court by the end of the week, the fact that Dianne Feinstein and the left have gone to the extent of attempting to give credibility to a rumor of something that may or may not have happened 36 years ago to destroy a good man and to further enrage the left shows us just how desperate they now are to stop Kavanaugh, and they'll resort to the dirtiest tricks to do so. With Bongino warning in his series of tweets that it's about to get very ugly in DC and on Capitol Hill, with protestors likely becoming more and more unhinged as the week moves on and closer to a vote, and violent and aggressive 'protests' being quite possible, this could be a make or break week for both political parties. With a block of Kavanaugh's nomination surely to send the left into shrieks of uncontrollable madness and soy-induced glee ahead of the mid-terms while a Kavanaugh confirmation would surely complete the left's detatchment from reality as Bongino warns as they complete their meltdown into madness. bongino_tweet_3.png While we've long believed when it comes to rumored forthcoming indictments and arrests of corrupt deep state officials that "we'll believe it when we see it", in this new story from Mike Adams over at Natural News and the 2nd and final video below from Adams at Counterthink, he argues that already signed Executive Orders indicate that President Trump is planning mass arrests and military tribunals for deep state traitors such as James Comey, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. And while we still say "we'll believe it when we see it" and not until then, and we certainly won't be holding our breaths waiting for it to happen, should such mass arrests happen it would be easy to understand why that would be the straw that broke the camel's back, sending the already enrage left into full-scale meltdown's all across the country, with the potential of extreme violence, perhaps even leading to martial law being declared ahead of civil war. And while we'd love to see such mass arrests of the traitors who sold out America for some kind of totalitarian, luciferian 'new world order', and Americans are clearly overdue seeing justice served, we should also be paying very close attention to the manipulated breakdown of the masses on the left, pushing for mob rule, as if Hillary and the Congressional leaders on the left are some kind of 'pied piper', playing a tune driving the left over the cliff of insanity. All eyes and ears open moving forward. As Return of Kings recently reported in their story titled "America Is Headed Towards A Civil War": The people of a nation must have common ideological, economic, political, and social ideas they agree upon or the nation, the civilization, will eventually die. Civil war is coming to the United States. Division, contention, fear, and silent invasion are being used to “reshape America.” The civil war that will emerge in the United States will not be like the previous one. This war will be for the mind and heart of the United States. It will be for the soul of the United States. What will we do when this occurs and what will be rebuilt. In 2016 Roosh wrote an article titled, The Culture War Is Being Transformed Into A Hot War. Roosh discusses the methods that are being used to transform the culture war into a hot war. Even the Huffington Post ran an article in 2016 titled, The Coming of America’s Second Civil War. The author, a Rev. Dr. Susan K. Smith, paints the coming civil war as the result of white Americans. While she may believe the lies she is speaking and writing, more than likely she failed to realize she is part of the elitist machine which is being used to create contention and divide the United States. Civil wars are over ideological and social issues. Economic and political issues are extensions of ideological and social issues. As real men, we will continue to have less and less in common with soy boys and progressives. The divide between the people that support the U.S. Constitution and those that want a New World Order is growing. carson_socialist_plot.png So while the mainstream media won't even report upon the shadowy groups within the United States driving the country secretly towards socialism as an actual member of the Trump administration had recently warned, we should see in their denial part of the plot to complete the enslavement of the American people, with Conservatives being heavily censored by big tech in an attempt to influence the 2018 midterms as part of their agenda. And with 'freedom' and 'liberty' quite literally hanging in the balance should somehow the left succeed in blocking Brett Kavanaugh's nomination before sweeping to a resounding victory in the 2018 mid-terms helped to be brought on by a deflated Republican base, their energy sapped by the failure of the Republican leadership to 'grow a pair' and get Kavanaugh voted onto the Court, 2020 will loom ever more important. So let's get Kavanaugh confirmed, Republicans! With a very clear cut line now drawn between those who believe we should put America first and those who've already given up hope on our nation and sold America out to the 'new world order', we've seen more and more evidence that 'new world order' is totalitarian and tyrannical in nature and as Assange warns, we could very well be the last 'free' generation. So ANP needs to prepare our war chest for the grueling months and hopefully years ahead, promising to continue taking the fight head on to those who'd rather we stay silent. But we couldn't do it without you so for those who are in the position to help fund the battle, every little bit of help is tremendously appreciated and we can assure you, will all be spent on keeping the kinds of stories you'll never read at mainstream media outlets flowing. We also promise the only way that we'll be getting out of this fight for the future of America will be is if they 'cull us' from this planet or they are successful in waging financial war against us. Yet, as Infowars recently warned, that is the goal of those who seek to enslave us as we move ever more quickly to their 'mark of the beast' system. To all of our readers who have been graciously helping us in this fight, we thank you so much. The battle rages on. God Bless.

I and many of my esteemed colleagues in the Independent Media work tirelessly to help preserve our existing culture, civil liberties and the overall preservation of our country.

BY Dave Hodges

Nearly all of us in this business strongly desire to leave a country to our children worthy of pride, respect and loyalty. Our American culture is on the verge of slipping into the abyss of third-world country mediocrity. Compared to the country that we once enjoyed, we are handing our children a cesspool of perversion, laziness and extreme self-indulgence. JFK’s message to America in which he stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” rings hollow in today’s America. We have politicians like Senator Dianne Feinstein (R-CA) who gets away with enabling a Chinese spy on her staff with impunity for over 20 years. Feinstein entered the Senate as a millionaire and is now worth over a billion dollars and she accomplished this amazing feat on a public servant’s salary of $170,000. Yet, we tolerate this nonsense. No wonder our children don’t think they are accountable to anyone. No wonder our children don’t think that they have to earn what they get and no wonder our country has been undermined by liberals from the bottom up. People in my profession work so very hard to preserve this country and then something catches our attention and it leaves us asking “Why are we wasting our time…”? The Lessons of My Youth In my family, if I were to ever get in trouble at school, I was even more in trouble at home. Some of my teachers were incredibly difficult. They allowed for no excuses. The only thing that mattered was your final product. Was it good enough? You either passed or you failed. There were no liberal-orientated policies in place where every kid got a trophy, nobody fails and the primary concern was not damaging “Sally’s self-esteem”. And when my teachers were done with us, we had to contend with coaches who made us afraid to fail. They taught us how to overcome the “disease of me” and sacrifice for our team. Most of all, our coaches taught us how to bounce back from setbacks and how to deal with adversity. In many of today’s public schools, are children are learning the opposite. Our children are shielded from the naturally occurring consequences of their actions. In large part, our children never learn to develop a spirit of resilience because they are shielded from results of their bad decisions. In many of our schools are children are being taught that one should get rewarded for simply showing up. We are certainly not teaching them to honor God. How many of you parents would like to work for a boss that enabled our personal laziness? In effect, our children are being propagandized to accept and embrace mediocrity. Subsequently, I am left asking some very fundamental questions. Even if we are successful in eradicating the liberal, communist-orientated threat to our country, will our children be able to rightfully take their place in successfully leading our nation into the next generation? As we prepare to hand our children the keys to the car, so to speak, we need to ask if our children even will know how to drive the car. A recent poll revealed that 53% Millennials prefer socialism over free enterprise. In other words, we have allowed the conditioning of our children to include the acceptance of failure. Please remember, socialism has never worked anywhere it has been tried and America is about to become the latest nation to reinforce this lesson of history. America’s Version of the Hitler Youth Movement The undermining of our youth is happening in places where one would expect the opposite to be happening. Many our schools have become social engineering experiments for the implementation of a liberal-orientated group think approach to laziness and self-indulgent behavior. Let’s take the K-8 West Gate School in Port St. Lucie, FL., as an example of the Marxist-socialist conditioning of our youth. There Is No Such Thing As a Stinking Due Date Due dates are a thing of the past. For the Millennial youth of today, showing up for work and producing is so… well… yesteryear. Minimum wage should be $20 per hour. “Who are you to judge me and I can live in my mom’s basement till I am 40”. Eight years of Obama’s welfare state and his moronic Common Core education program have done irreparable harm to our children. Obama may no longer be the President, but his nonsensical and moronic notions of a nanny state are still with us today. Take the Port St. Lucie K-8 West Gate school as a prime example. Former West Gate teacher, Diane Tirado, claims she was fired after she refused to follow her school district’s “no zeros” grading policy as reported by WFTV. Tirado told WFTV that in the first few weeks of the new semester, she assigned her class an “explorer notebook project.” Tirado reported that but after the two-week due date had expired, several students had failed to complete their work. This is when Tirado discovered that the school had a “no zeros” policy. She was directed to give the students 50% credit for doing nothing. After Tirado refused to give students 50% credit for work NOT turned in, she was terminated on September 14. I contacted the school district and they claim that Tirado was not terminated for failing students and that the district did NOT have a “no zeros” policy. However, the WFTV report clearly showed the policy in writing. So, we not only see the enabling of abject student laziness, we are seeing the willingness of liberal school officials to lie about their policies when they are exposed. On Tirado’s last day at West Gate, she wrote the following message and then posted it to Facebook. The message explained to her history students why she was fired. Here is the message and it should serve as a testimony of how we have failed our children. We have robbed our children of learning the values of hard work and resilience. Tirado told WFTV that she took a stand against the school’s policy because “we have a nation of kids that are expecting to get paid and live their life just for showing up and it’s not real.” Conclusion This story had a profound impact on this writer. It encapsulates how we have failed our children. Again, it leaves me wondering if it matters what kind of country we leave to our children.

Teen Stranded at Sea for 49 Days Turns to the Bible and Prayer to Survive

Kayla Koslosky | ChristianHeadlines.com Editor | Tuesday, September 25, 2018

A 19-year-old boy who was stranded at sea for seven weeks said, he survived by reading his bible and heeding the advice of his parents to pray. Indonesian teen Aldi Novel Adilang was set adrift in the Pacific Ocean while working as a lamp keeper on a floating fish trap some 80 miles off of the coast of Indonesia. Adilang had worked as a lamp keeper for three years, continuously lighting the traps lamps to attract fish. Once a week his company would come out to the floating trap to collect the fish and restock Adilang’s hut with food, water and fuel. In Mid-July, however, everything changed. Heavy winds shook the fish trap, known locally as a rompong, and snapped the moorings that held it stationary, casting him adrift. Over the next 49 days, Adilang would drift thousands of miles from home headed toward Guam, with no paddle or engine. Within the first few days, the teen ran out of supplies and had to survive by using the hut’s wood to cook fish and drinking seawater that was filtered through his clothes to dispel of the salt. Indonesian diplomat from the consulate in Osaka, Fajar Firdaus, told The Jakarta Post, “Aldi said he had been scared and often cried while adrift. Every time he saw a large ship, he said, he was hopeful, but more than 10 ships had sailed past him. None of them stopped or saw Aldi.” Newsweek reports that at one point Adilang became so discouraged that he considered jumping into the ocean and committing suicide, but when he remembered his parent's advice, he chose to turn to God instead. Adilang said his parents had taught him to pray to God during times of distress, and that is exactly what he did. The teen also had a bible on board with him and he told Tribun Manado that the Bible along with prayer helped him get through this trying experience. Finally, on August 31, Adilang spotted a carrier called Arpeggio and waved his cloth for help, this time the seamen saw Adilang too. Reportedly he also turned on his radio signal, hoping the captain would pick it up. Soon the captain saw the boy and turned the vessel around. The captain circled Adilang four times and according to Fajar, “Aldi then decided to jump into the sea to grab the rope, while the waves and wind rocked him…. The ship’s crew managed to catch his hand.” Adilang was handed over to Indonesian consulate officials in Japan on September 6 and was flown home to Manado, Indonesia, two days later. Indonesian consul general in Osaka Mirza Nurhidayat, told The Jakarta Post that Adilang is doing well and is in good health. “Aldi’s story is indeed dramatic, and we are thankful to all, the ship’s captain and the Japanese authorities that have been very helpful in ensuring Aldi’s return," Mirza said.

World Bank: Gaza economy is collapsing

“The economic deterioration in both Gaza and West Bank can no longer be counteracted by foreign aid, which has been in steady decline."

By Tovah Lazaroff September 25, 2018 13:57 2 minute read.

The Gaza economy is in a free fall with no viable solution on the horizon, the World Bank warned in a report it issued on Tuesday in advance of a top-level annual donor meeting on the sidelines of Thursday’s UN General Assembly session in New York . Donor assistance, which is declining, can no longer halt the economic deterioration in Gaza and the West Bank, the World Bank said. It plans to provide this information to the meeting – known as the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee – that will be hosted by the UN and chaired by Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide. Among those attending will be US special envoy Jason Greenblatt; European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini; Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and Finance Minister Shukri Bishara; and Israeli Regional Affairs Minister Tzachi Hanegbi. The AHLC meets twice a year and has continued to gather in spite of the dead- locked peace process and the tensions between the US and the Palestinians. Participants at this particular meeting are expected to grapple with the US decision not to send the anticipated $200 million in bilateral assistance to the Palestinian Authority for fiscal 2017 and its decision to halt its funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which had amounted to $360 million annually. According to the World Bank report, the Gaza economy is collapsing, registering negative 6% growth in the first quarter of 2018. The poverty rate in Gaza is 54%, meaning that every second person is living below the poverty line, the World Bank said. “The economic and social situation in Gaza has been declining for over a decade but has deteriorated exponentially in recent months, reaching a critical point. Increased frustration is feeding into the increased tensions which have already started spilling over into unrest and setting back the human development of the region’s large youth population,” said Marina Wes, World Bank country director for the West Bank and Gaza. The World Bank said on Tuesday that: “The economic deterioration in both Gaza and [the] West Bank can no longer be counteracted by foreign aid, which has been in steady decline, nor by the private sector which remains confined by restrictions on movement, access to primary materials and trade. “Moreover, the deterioration in the fiscal situation leaves the PA with limited scope to provide relief. With donor funding declining and a full year deficit of USD 1.24 billion, the financing gap is projected at US $600 million,” the World Bank said. “Against this background, a significant downside risk is the recent Israeli legislation to withhold clearance revenues (Tax and VAT collected by Israel on behalf of the Palestinian Authority), estimated at US $350 million per year,” the World Bank said. It blamed a number of factors, including Israeli restrictions on goods and movement into Gaza and Palestinian Authority sanctions against the Hamas ruled enclave in an attempt to force Hamas to relinquish its authority there. “We have reached a very challenging moment in the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians,” Søreide said in advance of Thursday’s meeting. The gathering “will be important to confirm international support for a negotiated two-state solution. Viable Palestinian institutions are a precondition for the two-state solution. It is also essential to take practical steps which can strengthen the Palestinian economy,” Søreide said.

Israel Strikes 200 Iranian Targets to Block 'an Outpost for Destroying Us', Russia Throws in a Monkey Wrench

09-25-2018 George Thomas CBNNews.com Displaying 30+ Stories

Israel's army, which has reportedly struck over 200 Iranian targets inside Syria over the past year, is vowing to continue their military operations against the Islamic regime's forces. "Israel has no choice but to keep striking in every possible way at Iranian positions in Syria," Michael Oren, Israel's deputy minister for diplomacy, warned Tuesday. On Monday, Russia announced it would supply Syria's government with the sophisticated S-300 surface-to-air missile defense system, which Israel fears Syria or Hezbollah could use against it. "The S-300 is one of the world's most advanced and sophisticated anti-aircraft systems and yes it is a challenge for us," Oren said. "We will overcome it as we have overcome similar challenges in the past, and again, Israel will do everything that needs to be done to ensure that Syria does not become an Iranian outpost for destroying us." Israel says Iran has spent the last few years trying to establish a military presence in Syria that could serve as a potential forward attacking base against the Jewish state. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters that his nation will "continue to act against the entrenchment of the Iranian military in Syria" despite Russia's decision to supply Syria with the S-300 system. "Israel has been very successful in the last three years in preventing Iran's military buildup in Syria as well as its attempts to deliver lethal weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon," Netanyahu said. Still, Israel worries that the advanced missile system could make it more difficult for them to target Iranian positions inside Syria. "Unfortunately, the Russians have stated their intention to introduce very sophisticated anti-aircraft systems into Syria, give it to the Syrian army. That is unfortunate. We think it's the wrong decision, but irrespective, Israel is going to have to come up with solutions to that and keep on defending itself," Oren said. "We cannot let precision-guided missiles and other advanced weaponry fall into the hands of Hezbollah." Israel and US officials are scheduled to discuss the matter of the S-300 system on the sidelines of this week's UN General Assembly in New York.

Why Iran is blaming Saudi Arabia and America over the Ahvaz attack

by Tom Rogan | September 24, 2018 06:49 PM

The specificity and scale of Iranian threats that have followed Saturday's terrorist attack in Ahvaz indicate that Iran will retaliate against those it blames for the attack. And while Saudi Arabia and the UAE are at the top of Iran's blame list, the U.S. and Israel are also being mentioned. The Ahvaz attackers, likely either Arab-separatists or ISIS, targeted a military parade and killed at least 25 people. But Iran is already throwing blame at its key adversaries. On Monday, Iran's leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei seemed to promise retaliation. Alongside Khamenei, the Iranian revolutionary guard corps, or IRGC, is also fuming, with one senior general claiming that Iran has evidence the U.S. directed Saudi Arabia to carry out the attack, and that Iran's response will be "annihilating and destructive." This allegation of U.S. involvement is an IRGC fairy tale, but it is possible — though unlikely — that the Saudis had some role in supporting the attackers. Regardless, it is notable that the more moderate elements of the Iranian regime are also threatening retaliation: President Hassan Rouhani retweeted a threat from his foreign minister Javad Zarif, promising a "swift" response against the U.S. This unity of anger and purpose is telling in that it draws contrast with the increasingly bitter divisions that otherwise define the Iranian polity. In turn, it suggests either that the Iranians truly believe they have evidence of Saudi complicity in the attack, or that Rouhani's more-moderate faction believes it cannot constrain some form of hardliner response. In the context of Iran's major economic pressures and the more moderate faction's interest in mitigating U.S. oil sanctions due to enter force in November, we might have expected the more-moderates to choose more cautious rhetoric. But the Iranian regime's various factions feel increasingly boxed in and desperate. And while that sense of desperation is an underlying objective of the Trump administration's Iran policy, Iran's reaction to this attack shows how things could spin out of control. The Trump administration must proceed cautiously here. Maintaining pressure on the Iranian hardliners, Trump should offer an olive branch to Rouhani in an attempt to move the needle away from a bloody showdown and toward an improved Iranian nuclear agreement. At the same time, the U.S. must make clear to Tehran that it will not quietly tolerate any violent Iranian (or Iranian proxy) action against U.S. interests either in the Middle East, or elsewhere.

View from space: NASA satellite shows polluted Carolina rivers flowing into ocean

by DON PARKER, ABC7/WJLA Staff Tuesday, September 25th 2018

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Images from a NASA satellite in space show dark, polluted water from Carolina rivers flowing into the Atlantic Ocean. Visible and infrared images show dissolved organic matter in the water with excess soils, sediments, decaying leaves, pollution, and other debris resulting from Hurricane Florence. “Organic matter—such as leaves, roots, or bark—contain pigments and chemicals (such as tannins) that can color the water when they dissolve. Depending on the amount of dissolved particles, the water in natural-color imagery can appear blue, green, yellow, or brown as the CDOM concentration increases,” a NASA spokesperson said. The Waccamaw River is expected to peak Wednesday at 22 feet near Conway, twice the normal flood stage, higher than the record of 17.9 feet, according to charts published by the National Weather Service. The Cape Fear and Neuse Rivers aren't expected to return to normal levels until October, the charts show.

RISE OF IRRATIONALITY

The Kavanaugh fight is spiritual warfare

Exclusive: Hal Lindsey asserts, 'Satan must be pleased. Hatred is on the rise in America'

Published: 5 days ago

Editor’s note: Hal Lindsey is the host of “The Hal Lindsey Report,” a weekly half-hour news and commentary series, and the author of “The Late Great Planet Earth,” the best-selling book of the 1970s that popularized Bible prophecy for tens of millions around the world. You can learn more about Hal Lindsey and his TV show on his website. I have spent the last six decades telling anyone who will listen that we are living in the final stretch to the end of this Age of Grace. The countdown began in earnest with the birth of the modern nation of Israel. That’s why I call Israel “God’s timeclock.” Many of the prophecies about the end times are predicated on the return of God’s people to the land He promised them. That was an event many Bible scholars thought could never happen. At various places, the Bible tells us what will be happening in the world around us. These signs will include physical events like earthquakes and wars. They will also include characteristics, attitudes and behaviors that manifest themselves in our cultures, our societies and in our individual selves. On top of this, the Bible warns that as we move closer to the end of the Age, these signs will increase in intensity and frequency. But to be candid, even I am surprised at some of the things I see playing out across our TV screens today. They are like bizarre scenes from a B-movie. Rational – or formerly rational – people engaged in behaviors and shenanigans most hack screenwriters would be embarrassed to include in their trashy screenplays. One of the hallmarks of the last days will be the rise of irrationality. Romans 1:28 says, “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind to do those things which are not proper.” The Greek context here means God gave them over to a mind that cannot even think in its own best interest. Satan must be pleased. Hatred is on the rise in America. Everywhere we look, from politics to family life to racial groups to religious traditions to economic classes to sports, our impatience, disgust and sheer hatred of one another is exploding. Everything we once held to be true and normal now seems to be turned on its head. No one trusts anyone anymore. But it’s no wonder. Truth has become a rare commodity in America today. Conscience even rarer. I’m reminded of a remark found in Isaiah 5 that could perfectly describe the world today. Isaiah wrote, “They say that what is right is wrong and what is wrong is right; that black is white and white is black; bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20 TLB) What we see happening in America today would not have happened here even 30 years ago. But in those years, we have been rearing generations of people who have no moral compass. The forces of entertainment and education have successfully weakened our sense of heritage, responsibility, even right and wrong to the point that we can’t even think in our own best interest. That’s one reason why when people come along and challenge the prevailing “wisdom” of the last few decades, they are treated with such disdain and disregard. We see it plainly in the current Israeli/Palestinian conflict. No matter the fact that The Oslo Accord – now 25 years old – has been an unmitigated, abject failure (a disaster, really), when President Trump suggests trying something different – like actually facing the realities of life in Israel – he is labeled a neophyte or, worse, a moron. The president’s recent attempts to force the Palestinian Authority to enter serious peace negotiations with the Israelis have been met with derision at home and abroad. Though nothing has worked to end the conflict in the last 70 years, the world wants to keep doing more of the same. Isn’t that the definition of insanity? Of course, those of us who believe Bible prophecy know that only the return of Jesus Christ to this earth will bring true, lasting peace to Israel. But we who follow Jesus Christ need to wake up and smell the coffee, too. We are in the time that Jesus Himself warned us about. The time when the world – meaning the establishment – will hate us simply because we believe in and follow Him. And what the world hates, it punishes and destroys. That’s us, folks. What else can explain the utter contempt being heaped on Vice President Mike Pence? Here is a man who embodies all of the ideals that we once looked for in a man: faith, fidelity to his wife and family, loyalty, honesty, hard work and sterling morals. Yet Frank Bruni, writing in the New York Times, called Vice President Pence, “a holy terror … self-infatuated … a bigot … a liar … cruel.” He went on to accuse Mr. Pence of having “the conviction that he’s on a mission from God and a determination to mold the entire nation in the shape of his own faith, a regressive, repressive version of Christianity.” That’s the New York Times. And they’re not really talking only about Vice President Pence; that’s what the establishment thinks about you and me. The Atlantic is one of the most prestigious magazines in the United States. It recently ran an article headlined, “God’s Plan for Mike Pence.” It featured an illustration of Vice President Pence as a holy man, draped in the garb of an Apostle, his hands raised skyward and a look of holier-than-thou piety on his face. A halo framed his head. That graphic mocked not only the vice president, but all people of faith, especially Christians. The article described him as a “Bible thumper” who “often cited scripture to explain his votes.” The author, McKay Coppins called Mr. Pence, “dangerous.” He wrote, “In some quarters on the left, it has become fashionable to fret that Pence’s fundamentalist faith and comparative political savvy would make him an even more ‘dangerous’ president than Trump. He has been branded a ‘theocrat’ and a ‘Christian supremacist.'” California’s Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters has already publicly stated that once Trump has been taken care of, they’re going after the next one. That’s the vice president. And the groundwork is already being laid. On the popular television program “The View,” Joy Behar said about the vice president, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s mental illness … hearing voices.” Though she later apologized, her apology did not diminish the left’s growing tide of panic and hatred for Vice President Pence. And us. Folks, this is nothing less than absolute spiritual warfare. What we are seeing is the rise of a new anti-Christian caste system in America. Followers of Jesus are being systematically disqualified from positions of influence. Just last year, Sen. Bernie Sanders told a Senate hearing that Christians should not be allowed to serve in high positions in the government. In the first 180 years of the Supreme Court, its justices were almost all Protestant. Today, there is one Protestant. Justice Neil Gorsuch was raised Catholic, but now attends an Episcopal church. There are four Roman Catholic justices and three Jewish justices. President Trump’s current nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, is Catholic. For a while, Catholics were approved by the ruling elite, even conservative Catholics. Antonin Scalia was one of the most conservative justices in a generation. He was also a conservative Catholic. In 1986, the Senate confirmed him 98 to 0. But that was another America. Today, conservative Catholics are treated with the same disdain as evangelicals. I truly believe that one of the strongest underlying fears of the left – as embodied by the Democrat senators – is that a future Justice Kavanaugh’s religious faith, if given the opportunity, will compel him to undermine the sacred cows of the left, like abortion and gay marriage. That means that his confirmation has taken on the earmarks of spiritual warfare, not simply a review of his judicial qualifications to sit on the highest court. More than half the nation identifies as Protestant. More than a quarter identifies as evangelical. Where are they? They have been systematically filtered out of the process. They can win elections, but are largely excluded from the judiciary; from tenured posts at universities; from leadership in the nation’s think tanks; from entertainment; and from thousands of other highly influential positions. The nation that was founded by Christians on Christian principles became the envy of the world. It provided its citizens with more freedom and more prosperity than any other nation in history. Now those Christians are becoming outcasts in the nation they built. And it’s not just the Christian faith that’s under attack, but Christian values, too. Just as the Bible warned. I say it again. This is spiritual warfare. It doesn’t have anything to do with rationality or intellectual debate. When the establishment comes after you because of your Christian beliefs, recognize that the source of that hostility is Hell itself. Satan is behind the hatred of God’s people, whether it’s the Jews or true Christians. And he is going all-out to destroy the true church and everything the followers of Christ have built. That includes America. But I have some good news. Jesus said, “In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NASB) In 2 Corinthians 5:20, the Apostle Paul calls us “ambassadors for Christ.” Consider this. Before hostilities break out between nations, they withdraw their respective ambassadors. At some point in the near future, God will unleash His wrath against Satan and sin. But before He declares war on this sin-infested planet, God will remove His ambassadors. He will evacuate us from this hostile situation. He will get us out before the real shooting-war begins. We call this evacuation operation “The Rapture.” The Bible calls it our “blessed hope.” (Titus 2:13 NASB) See the Hal Lindsey Report on TBN, Daystar, CPM Network and various local stations with more information at HalLindsey.com  and HisChannel.com .

The Kavanaugh Hearings and the Clash Between #MeToo and #FalselyAccused

By CP Op-Ed Contributor Michael Brown | Tue 25 Sep 2018 10:03 EDT

To date, not a single alleged witness provided by Prof. Christine Blasey Ford has corroborated her charges. And until Sunday night, not another woman came forward with any charge of any kind against Judge Kavanaugh. Now, however, another woman has emerged, also claiming improper behavior from Kavanaugh when he was in college. How do we sort this out? The entire public testimony of Kavanaugh's professional life has been virtually without blemish. That's why pundits like Dennis Prager urge us not even to consider whether Kavanaugh misbehaved while in high school 36 years ago. In Prager's view, even if Kavanaugh was guilty, that's not who he has been for decades, and we should appreciate the man he is and has been for so many years. David French also reminded us that, in contrast with prominent men like Bill Clinton or Donald Trump, there is not a long line of women echoing the charges of abuse or impropriety. Because of this, he suggested, Kavanaugh has more of a presumption of innocence. Then there is the seriousness of bringing a false accusation, something that could destroy someone's career, family, or even life. Do we take that lightly? How can we? An article on National Review notes that thousands of men have been falsely accused of sexual misconduct and crimes. Many have even spent years in prison although innocent. (The article, by Michelle Malkin, was titled, "Don't 'Believe Women.' Believe Evidence.") For example, Brian Franklin, spent 21 years of a life sentence in prison after he was convicted in 1995 of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl who had committed perjury on the stand and later won a reversal of his conviction in 2016. Joshua Horner, serving a 50-year sentence for sexual abuse of a young girl, was exonerated. There had been no DNA, no corroborating witnesses, and no other forensic evidence. Just the word of his accuser. Victor Burnette cared for his grandmother and was getting ready to start his career. In 1979 a woman identified him as the man who raped her. He was convicted and spent three decades fighting to clear his name before DNA testing cleared him in 2009. Tragically, just as thousands of rapes are not reported every year, and just as countless cases of sexual abuse are not ruled in favor of the female victim, there are countless cases of false accusations against men. That's why Michelle Malkin gives these simple guidelines. The role of the press should be verification, not validation.  Rape is a devastating crime. So is lying about it. It's not victim-blaming to get to the bottom of the truth. It's liar-shaming. Don't believe a gender. Believe evidence. How, then, do we sort things out? Those who've read my previous, relevant articles know that I've done my best to remain impartial, although I've been skeptical of Ford's charges. (See here and here.) Now that another accuser has come forward, there should be a clear path forward. What does the evidence say? What do other eyewitnesses say? It's true that the attacks on Kavanaugh have the fingerprints of a Democratic hit job. But do we ignore them because their timing is beyond suspicious? If Justice Kavanaugh is not the man he claims to be (or at least, the man he claims he was back then), shouldn't we know? Conversely, if he's been falsely accused, how can we not do everything in our power to clear his name? When it comes to Ford's accusations, her credibility is not looking good. Not only did the other men she placed at the alleged party deny her report, but a lifelong female friend whom Ford referenced has also denied any knowledge of Ford's story. That doesn't mean she's evil or lying. As traumatic as the alleged event may have been, since she acknowledged being drunk and only having foggy memory of some of the salient details, she could simply be remembering incorrectly. Vividly, for sure; incorrectly, certainly possible. When it comes to the new witness, reportedly a Never Trumper (if that matters), her charges are more extreme. But they are more easily corroborated (or refuted), since she makes very specific claims about a particular party at Yale that was allegedly known to quite a few others. Already, however, we have serious reason to be skeptical of the charges brought by the new accuser, Deborah Ramirez. As reported in The New Yorker, "She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh's role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers" all the scandalous details. With all respect to this new accuser, may I ask all of you who used to drink how well you can sort out your drunken memories from more than 30 years ago? How confident would you feel swearing under oath that missing details are now coming back accurately? How sure would you be about putting someone else's life on the line based on your reconstruction of a foggy, intoxicated, old event? I've heard from professionals who have sought to explain why Prof. Ford chose not to come forward until now. They say this is in keeping with other victims of abuse. I've also heard from professionals who have explained how easy it is to alter past memories. All the more is this true if you were drunk. When it comes to Deborah Ramirez, then, even if we give her the benefit of the doubt, there should be enough other people to confirm or deny her story one way or the other. And quickly, at that. As Michelle Malkin urged, believe the evidence, not a gender. Sadly, though, should Kavanaugh be exonerated, this whole situation reminds us of how difficult our society has made it for good people to serve in public office. Who in their right mind would welcome this kind of abuse? May this also be a teachable moment for our nation before we destroy ourselves with our very own hands.

Russia bolsters Syrian air defenses amid tensions with Israel

Days after Russia blamed Israel for downing of plane over Syria, Russia vows to upgrade Syrian air defense network.

David Rosenberg, 24/09/18 20:12

Russia vowed Monday to upgrade Syria’s anti-air defense network, following the downing of a Russian military aircraft in Syrian airspace last week. The Russian Defense Ministry announced plans to arm the Syrian military with advanced S-300 surface-to-air missiles – replacing its defense network of older S-200 missiles. The Russian military will also work to actively jam the radar systems of approaching warplanes near the Syrian border. Russian President Vladimir Putin informed Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of the plan during a phone call between the two leaders Monday, claiming that the move was needed to protect Russian soldiers deployed in Syria. Netanyahu protested the decision, saying the transfer of the missiles to “irresponsible hands” was “dangerous”. “The Prime Minister said that the transfer of advanced weapons systems to irresponsible hands would make the region more dangerous, and that Israel would continue to defend its interests and security,” the Prime Minister’s Office said Monday evening. In recent years, Russia has refused to sell the advanced surface-to-air missile system to Syria. Sergey Shoygu, Russia’s defense minister, linked the decision to reverse Russia’s policy to the downing of a Russian reconnaissance plane over Syria last week, saying the shoot-down had “pushed us to adopt adequate response measures directed at boosting the security of Russian troops.” Shoygu said the missiles would be transferred to Syria in two weeks. Last Tuesday morning, an IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft was reported missing over Syria, following an Israeli airstrike on a military research facility in northern Syria. The plane, which was carrying 15 crew members, was later declared lost, after apparently being downed by a Syria surface-to-air missile. Russian officials blamed Israel for the downing of the IL-20, saying the IDF had provided just one-minute advance notice of the impending airstrike to Russian Defense Ministry officials, adding that the Israeli fighter jets had used the IL-20 to draw the Syrian air defense network’s fire. Israel denied the claims, saying its jets were already out of the combat zone and in Israeli airspace when the IL-20 was downed, and that the IL-20 had been far from the area of the airstrikes during the Israeli operation. An IDF delegation was dispatched to Moscow last week to share information collected by Israel as part of its investigation into the incident.

Netanyahu: IDF to continue anti-Iran strikes in Syria, despite S-300

“Israel has been very successful in the last three years in preventing Iran's military buildup in Syria as well as its attempts to deliver lethal weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon,” Netanyahu said.

By Tovah Lazaroff September 25, 2018 15:07 1 minute read.

The IDF will continue to strike at Iranian target in Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after Russia announced plans to transfer to Syria an advanced anti-missile system known as the S-300. “Israel has been very successful in the last three years in preventing Iran's military buildup in Syria as well as its attempts to deliver lethal weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon,” Netanyahu said. He spoke before departing for New York where he plans to meet with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the General Assembly, for what will be their fifth, face-to-face encounter. Russian plans with regard to the S-300, which the US also opposes, will be an important part of that conversation. Israel fears that the S-300, will make it more difficult for the IDF to execute air raids against Iranian targets. The decision to transfer the S-300 comes after a Russian war plane was shot down in Syria on September 17, leading to the loss of 15 Russian military personnel. Russia has blamed Israel, while Israel in turn has accused Syria and Iran of downing the plane. Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by telephone on Monday night and agreed to continue their security coordination in Syria. “Since the tragic events in the Syrian skies, I have spoken twice with President Putin, expressing deep sorrow about the loss of lives of the Russia crew on the plane, that was irresponsibly shot down by Syrian fire,” Netanyahu said. On Tuesday morning Netanyahu held a special security cabinet meeting and brief the ministers on events with Syria, Russia and Iran. The cabinet ministers also expressed sorrow over the loss of Russian lives, Netanyahu said. “We will continue to act to prevent the Iranian military build up in Syria and to continue with the security coordination between the IDF and the Russian army,” Netanyahu said. He added that he and Putin had agreed that representatives from the Israeli and Russian armies would meet soon to discuss continued coordination in Syria. “We will do what is necessary to defend Israel's security,” Netanyahu said.

Civil War II Is Hot But For The Surface-To-Surface Missiles

September 17, 2018 by CH

Sometimes you want your perspective fortified with a dose of concentrated pessimism. Commenter Logic delivers the goods, I have been following the latest outrage of the last three days. Apparently, Brett Kavanaugh pulled a girls ponytail at the playground when he was 9 or something to that effect, and everyone on the left is losing their minds. I’m not going to analyze the myriad of ways that this accusation makes no sense (notably timing, inconsistencies, age of people involved, and other things that came up). My point is different in nature and the observation is more general. The United States is in a civil war in every way short of using arms. The institutions won’t save us any more because they no longer mean anything. There are two sides which are equally unchangeable in their minds. Both sides are not driven by the same principles (you can call it a fight between “idealism” vs “realism” to give them both credit but that is giving the one side a little too much credit I guess) but in principle both sides are largely unmoved in their beliefs and direction. The issue is that until very recently we thought that there was only one side that was rising every day (the Left) and another that was slowly dying (the Right). The leaders of the Right themselves were into some sort of pathological approval seeking path to appease the Left even to their own detriment (as long as they were not labelled as “-ists” of any kind). In a perverse sense, they were even more over-socialized in the kaczynskian sense then their Left counterparts and hence they were ok with killing their own movement as long as they were still invited to their Galas and Correspondents dinners (during which they were happy to be the butt of the joke). Meanwhile, their constituents, who are despised by the Left, were always feeling like there was only one way of doing things and that the best they could hope for was to slow down their eventual demise. Trump changed all of this. The Right realized that they don’t owe the Left shit. They could still believe what their eyes and common sense dictated to them without going through any PC filter or seeking institutional approval. I’m not going to go into depth about the Trump phenomenon but if I can summarize it into a single soundbite it would be this: “Trump PERMANENTLY awakened half of the US population to the reality of what is happening to their nation”. The emphasis is on “permanently” and I explain why reaching my conclusion. There is no way for the political situation in the US to become better. Let me repeat this. THERE. IS. NO. WAY. THINGS. GET. BETTER. It is total war at this point. It is a war of attrition. There is no scenario where everyone starts liking (or even accepting) everyone in the other side. The Left was so close to actually kill the dragon in it’s sleep. Trump awakened it but it doesn’t mean that the Right will win. It only means that it will either prevail or it will go down fighting. No middle ground. Make no mistake that both sides are out to win this thing by any means necessary. Kavanaugh doesn’t matter. The Supreme court will not matter when 70 million people from one or the other side view it as illegitimate. Nothing matters anymore. You are in the USA but it is no longer one country. It was beautiful while it lasted and it may be beautiful again. I am no prophet so I can’t say which side will be the best for this country in the long run. [ed: I can. If the Anti-White Equalist Leftoids win the war, in the long run there is no America as we know her. There is only misery, extremes of inequality, and the death of anything Beautiful and True] Human dynamics are so complicated that anyone who claims otherwise with extreme certainty is a fool. [ed: with extreme certainty, I know that Nature doesn’t suffer fools gladly for long] The Right is just more likely to use past experience and common sense about human nature as its guiding principles and insofar as the past can teach us about the future in complex situations, it is more likely that they have it right. However who knows? Maybe blind idealism and the Left’s values will be more useful for the country to survive and thrive in a changing world. Only time will tell. You can choose the poolside or the battlefield. But don’t let anyone tell you that things will ever be the same again. The US, at least the way the founding fathers have envisioned it, is no more. FYI, Creepy Joe Biden is now calling Trump supporters “dregs of society“. A bit more bite to it than the cunt’s “deplorables”, but the intended message is the same: “we don’t reason with those we consider our inferiors”. These are fighting words, dripping with dehumanizing bile. When the elites use terms like this to describe regular working stiff Americans, it is proof their hearts are blackened and they would laugh if you were killed, your children raped, and everything you hold dear reduced to ashes. How would you compromise in good faith with enemies like that? You wouldn’t. The time for op-eds and lecterns and agitprop would end and give way to the clarifying battlefield. PA adds, Solid comment, glad it didn’t drown in mod. The x-factor: White libs are not acting in their own rational self-interest. They don’t see it that way right now and there is no way of appealing to their reason the way you’d talk a friend out of making a disastrous purchase. But they might realize this in time: No matter which side wins, they lose. The key will be just how disloyal White women are to their White men, which is equivalent to asking how disloyal White women will be to their nation, for a nation is the sum total of men’s collective purpose and ambition, and America is the sum total of White men’s collective vision. If our women embrace pussyhat careerist shrike catladydom, their loyalty will evaporate, and America’s end is fated. If somehow they return to the fold, it buys their men time to rescue America from an Abattoir of Babel demise. I thought Trump would buy us that time, and he still may, but with each day and each new low the Media-Deep State-Democortez Axis of Annihilation plumb my doubt grows that Trump can prevail. He has done much; it may not be enough. From where I stand, I don’t see White shitlibs coming around to reason any time soon, maybe not even when the rivers of blood flow. I see flickers of hope, of delayed realization from a few, but they won’t make the difference. We need an awakening that shakes the foundations of our institutions, rends post-WW2 orthodoxy, and shatters the neoliberal belief in Globohomo. Pray for it, because what will emerge from a thwarted awakening is the stuff of nightmares.

Air Force Calls For 24% Increase In Squadrons To Prepare For War Against Major Power

by Tyler Durden Tue, 09/18/2018 - 23:05

Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson on Monday called for a significant increase in the service’s size, as it prepares for the possibility of war against a major nation such as China or Russia, in the next decade. Under the expansion plan outlined by Wilson, the Air Force needs to grow by 74 additional squadrons, a 25% increase, by 2030. She said the number was based on internal reports, using intelligence estimates of what the service would need as far as manpower to be victorious in the next conflict. "To face the world as it is, with a rapidly innovating adversary, the Air Force we need should have about 25 percent more operational squadrons in the 2025 to 2030 time frame than the Air Force we have," Wilson told attendees at an Air Force Association conference in National Harbor, Maryland. Wilson, the Air Force's top civilian official, said the increase is essential to the service's current mission of upholding the new national defense strategy, as well as combating the evolving threats from China and Russia. "The defense strategy tells us that we need to be able to defend the homeland, provide a credible nuclear deterrent and win against a major power while encountering a rogue nation, all while managing violent extremists with lower levels of effort," she said. Wilson said the service has approximately 312 operational squadrons but needs 386. "Three hundred and twelve operational squadrons is not enough. It takes all of us to get that combat power ready and able to fight. A fist is nothing without the weight of the body behind it." Wilson explained that the 74 additional squadrons, 14 would be dedicated to aerial refueling. Seven of them would be assigned to space squadrons, and five would be bomber squadrons. She said seven new operations squadrons, nine combat search and rescue squadrons, 22 command and control squadrons, seven more fighter squadrons, two drone squadrons, and one airlift squadron. She added that the Air Force does not anticipate more nuclear or cyber squadrons, and while she conceded that it would take years to build these new squadrons, she did not give an estimate of how much the program would cost. "We aren't naive about how long it will take us to build the support and budget required for the force we need. It is a choice," Wilson said. Todd Harrison, a defense budget analyst for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, pointed out that a 24 percent growth in Air Force squadrons would require an additional $13 billion per year. "The cost of pay and benefits for 40,000 airmen is about $5.2B per year (give or take)," he wrote in a Tweet on Friday. "Right now the Air Force spends about $53B per year on aircraft operations, training, and recruiting. Increasing the number of squadrons by ~24% would probably add another $13B per year in these operating costs." War is big business. Decades-long wars have enriched the shareholders of Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Raytheon, and Northrop Grumman. As for the foreseeable future, America's military-industrial-complex will continue to expand. For those asking why, the chart below shows the answer:

Preparing For WW3 Level False Flag, Terrorists Film 9 Staged Chemical Attack Videos In Syria

- If President Trump Is Our Last President As Many On The Left Now Fear, It Will Be Because 'America' No Longer Exists

By William B Stoecker - All News Pipeline September 17, 2018

Just before the outbreak of WWI, someone expressed a fear that a major war might erupt over “some damned fool thing in the Balkans.” And the murder of the Austrian Archduke by a Serbian (Serbia is a Balkan nation) set off the Great War, which, in turn, led to all the other horrors of the twentieth century. Now there is a real danger that a world-ending nuclear holocaust could be set off by a foolish act in Syria…and if it is we will have Donald Trump to thank for it…for the buck does indeed stop at his desk. I am far from an anti-Trumper. I voted for him and worked briefly as a volunteer at his campaign headquarters. His economic policies, including lower taxes and some deregulation, have benefited our economy in the short run (in the long run we will suffer the consequences of the continued deficit spending which Trump has not even begun to control). He has spoken the truth to the American people regarding the elites and their deep state and the menace of uncontrolled immigration. But between his rhetoric and reality, between word and deed, there is a gap. From the beginning, having promised to drain the swamp, he has packed his regime with CFR members, Bonesmen, neocons, and Goldman-Sachs alumnicreatures from the deepest part of the swamp. He is always just about to build the wall, but he signed a spending bill that funds Planned “Parenthood” but not the wall. He could at least put the military on the border to supplement the Border Patrol (Mexico, by invading us, has already violated the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo). He has referred again and again to “crooked Hillary” but his “Justice” Department, led by the traitors Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein, has failed to investigate her very real crimes or to cooperate with Congress, which has repeatedly requested documents and testimony, only to be stonewalled over and over. But Trump appointed Little Jeff and has refused to fire him; now he has even stated that he will not fire him before the mid-term elections, if then. He could at least declassify documents relating to the FISA case that has led to most of his present troubles, but, to date, he has not done so. The Demoncraps regard politics as war, and fight hard and dirty, while Trump, like any good Republican, does not fight at all. During his campaign he was rightly critical of our eternal undeclared wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere, but he has been in office nearly two years and Americans continue to die in Afghanistan. We still have troops in Iraq, where the Bushes thoughtfully installed a pro-Iranian regime. And Trump has sent our forces into Syria, where we are supporting Sunni terrorists against the Assad regime, which, by Middle East standards, is about as moderate and sane as they come. He has used poison gas attacks that were almost certainly false flag operations by our own “allies” as an excuse to bombard Syria with cruise missiles. During his campaign he hinted at improving relations with Putin’s Russia, but has continued sanctions against that nation, to punish them for daring to reclaim historical Russian soil (Crimea) and to have their own foreign policy in Syria, a nation that really is of no importance to America. He has even signed on to the policy, first outlined by Hussein Obama, of “regime change” in Syria, and has appointed Yale graduate (and Bonesman?) John Bolton, the mighty neocon with his superbly martial mustache, as his National Security Advisor. Bolton has never seen a war he didn’t like, save for Vietnam, which he avoided by joining the National Guard. Now Assad, aided by Iranian and Russian forces, is closing in on the last rebel stronghold, in the Idlib area, more or less controlled by the Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s Syrian branch. Sizeable numbers of US troops are in that area, doing God only knows what for what purpose. And it looks as if another false flag gas attack may be in the works. If Russian forces kill US troops, or if the US once again uses a false flag gas attack as an excuse for an attack on Syrian forces and Russians are also killed in that attack, or the Russians target US forces to prevent our attack on Syria…paranoia can feed paranoia and retaliation can lead to escalation, and, before we know it, we are dying in agony in nuclear firestorms. All the anti-Russian rhetoric being spewed by the media and the other leftists in this country has only served to increase tensions. Trump will be our last President because America will no longer exist. Yet we are assured by the faithful that the Donald is a good guy Machiavellian with a secret plan to give the leftists just enough rope to hang themselves…and then he will strike. Mass arrests of the Witch Hillary, Eric Holder, Hussein himself, and countless others are about to begin, followed by trials by military tribunals. No one wants to face the fact that the perfumed princes of the Pentagon are as much a part of the Deep State as the FBI and other “intelligence community” operatives. Many of these rumors originated with QAnon’s 10/2017 post on image board 4 chan. Calling himself a “Q Clearance Patriot,” some individual or group has been spreading such rumors ever since. And maybe the rumors are true and QAnon is for real…I certainly hope so. But I’ll believe it when I see it, and, in the meantime, it is clear that a thermonuclear holocaust would finish off Western Civilization quite nicely, as only Putin’s Russia and Trump’s followers here offer any hope of salvation for Mankind. Western Europe is probably past the point of no return.

SHOWDOWN: Pelosi/Schumer/Schiff/Warner order intel agencies to ignore presidential order

Category: U.S. National News Wednesday, 19 September 2018 00:55

Democrats in Congress are so petrified of the truth coming out about their intentional misuse the Intelligence apparatus of the United States to LIE to federal Courts and obtain Spy Warrants against incoming President Donald Trump, using false information given to the courts, that they are now ORDERING the Department of Justice and FBI to IGNORE a Presidential Order! There's just one tiny problem: The DOJ and FBI work for the President, not Congress. Moreover, the Democrats do not hold majorities in either house of Congress, so they are in no position AT ALL to "order" anyone to do anything. Here are the details and an except from the letter they sent to the DOJ and FBI . . . On September 17, it became public knowledge that President Trump had ORDERED the Department of Justice and the FBI to declassify Text Messages and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court applications connected to the totally bogus "Russia Collusion" investigation. Those Text messages and the application to the courts will PROVE that elements within the Department of Justice and the FBI intentionally LIED to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, used phony evidence that THEY FABRICATED as justification for obtaining Warrants to spy on incoming President Trump and his campaign, and CONCEALED their nefarious efforts from the American people. The White House announced the President's Order On September 17. The President's Order caused the Democrats to utterly PANIC. They realized that if the text messages and FISA court documents were made available to the American people, it would prove beyond any doubt that the Democrat Party misused government power to illegally spy on an incoming President, and to wreck his Presidency before he ever took office. Democrats don't want the American people to find out their whole "Russia Collusion" story was a made-up falsehood they they used to DUPE the American people for the last two years. So on Tuesday, September 18, the Democrats did something heretofore unimaginable: They wrote to the DOJ and FBI telling them to IGNORE a Presidential Order! Here's an excerpt of that letter:  etc ```````````The letter above refers to "The Gang of Eight." Here's what that means: The Gang of Eight is a colloquial term for a set of eight leaders within the United States Congress who are briefed on classified intelligence matters by the executive branch. Specifically, the Gang of Eight includes the leaders of each of the two parties from both the Senate and House of Representatives, and the chairs and ranking minority members of both the Senate Committee and House Committee for intelligence as set forth by 50 U.S.C. § 3093(c)(2). Under normal conditions, the President of the United States is required by Title 50 U.S.C. § 3091(a)(1) to "ensure that the congressional intelligence committees are kept fully and currently informed of the intelligence activities of the United States, including any significant anticipated intelligence activity as required by [the] title." However, under "extraordinary circumstances", when the President thinks "it is essential to limit access" to information about a covert action, 50 U.S.C. § 3093(c)(2) allows the President to limit reporting to the Gang of Eight. This situation is the exact reverse: The President is DECLASSIFYING things . . . he wants the American People to know the facts, know the truth. These members of Congress are turning the concept of the "Gang of Eight" on its head in an effort to STOP disclosure of the facts! If it occurs to you that what these members of Congress are doing is SEDITION, you are not alone. Many people see it for exactly that. The individuals who signed this letter are CORRUPT. They are intentionally overstepping their authority as members of the Legislative Branch of government, trying to usurp Presidential authority by directly interfering with two Executive Branch Departments that are BOTH under the sole control of the President! These individuals are desperate to CONCEAL from the American people that the Democrat Party, via its elected officials and supporters who were in government employment during the Obama regime: LIED to federal courts, Obtained search and wiretap warrants without probable cause, Fabricated phony "evidence" in furtherance of this Conspiracy and Engaged in unlawful spying on an incoming President of the United States. These Democrats are so utterly desperate to conceal the truth, they're willing to directly, intentionally and actively interfere with the American people's right to know what our government has done. THIS is what the Democrat Party has come to be. They are truly Domestic Enemies of America and Enemies of the truth. The patience of the American People with these Seditious Democrats should be wearing pretty thin right about now. Bottom line: The Legislative Branch cannot "Order" the Executive Branch to do anything without passing a law. Since Democrats are not a majority of either house of Congress, they have ZERO chance of doing that. The President has issued the Order to his departments and they must obey. If they fail or refuse he can walk over there start FIRING every person who refuses until he gets to someone who obeys. It's THAT simple. Here's a humorous 2 minute video about what's coming very soon: (Enjoy!)

INTERNATIONAL SAFETY

B. Putin: For the first time, a domestic criticism of his mild attitude to the Israeli raid

19/09/2018 - 13:57 | Last update: 20/09/2018 - 08:34

For the first time, the president of Russia, B. Putin, criticized his country for the way he faced the Israeli air raid yesterday in the "heart" of the Russian military presence in Syria, Lattakia-Tartu, which had a tragic result of the shooting by "friends" - Syrian-fire of the AFS IL-20 and the death of the 15 crew members. Several Russian media rejected his gentle approach and Israeli acquittal despite the fact that original sources of the Russian Ministry of the Interior had named Israel as responsible for the fall of IL-20. Today, the Kremlin has left Defense Minister Sosogu to "pull the snake" out of the hole and to stiffen Moscow's position towards Tel Aviv. The Russian YPAM said he warned his Israeli counterpart that "such acts will not be missed . " In fact, the video was released in public. But most importantly, this move is accompanied by actions. Russia suddenly sealed sea and air literally in the Mediterranean Sea. The Cyprus Republic issued yesterday afternoon fifteen Notam and seven Navtex, committing from now until next Wednesday many and large areas in the sea and air within the Nicosia Fir and the area of ​​responsibility for search and rescue of Cyprus. It is characteristic that Seven seven Notam and Seven Navtex bound sea areas and the air space above them at an altitude of up to 19,000 feet  The other eight Notam announce that they are closing for air traffic - up to 19,000 feet, a total of 52 points of reference for aircraft crossing at Fir Nicosia. For the seven maritime regions, it is typical to have a strong reference to alerts to seafarers that they are dangerous to navigate. It is obvious that with the large-scale military activity, it brings considerable difficulties and reorganizations mainly to the management of Nicosia's Fir, but also to the civil aviation of Israel and Lebanon. Sources say that Russia is trying to create a "no fly zone" around Israel in the Mediterranean. This is the only reason to justify the current move by Moscow to block with 14 ships and maritime areas up to 19,000 feet by 26 September. Now if an Israeli fighter wants to fly outside Israel and attack Syria he has to fly over 19,000 feet. It is also important that the cruise ship "Marshal Ustinov" (055) Slava class with 64 S-300F missiles moves southwest of Israel theoretically also covering its airspace. Israeli people are wondering if in the end Russia is trying to destroy at least one fighter ... However, the Israeli raid is a beam of light for the PA as an example of the S-400's "shield" drilling, with zero coverage of a geographic recess. Do not forget that in 2019 Turkey's S-400 will become operational.

Hill.TV INTERVIEW EXCLUSIVE: Trump eviscerates Sessions: ‘I don’t have an attorney general’

By John Solomon and Buck Sexton

President Trump in an Oval Office interview with Hill.TV launched one of his most ferocious broadsides to date against Jeff Sessions, suggesting the attorney general was essentially AWOL and performing badly on a variety of issues. “I don’t have an attorney general. It’s very sad,” Trump told Hill.TV in an extensive and freewheeling interview Tuesday from the Oval Office. The president has long excoriated Sessions for his March 2017 decision to recuse himself from the Russia collusion investigation. But on Tuesday he suggested he is frustrated by Sessions's performance on far more than that. “I’m not happy at the border, I’m not happy with numerous things, not just this,” he said. Trump suggested he had a personal blind spot when it came to nominating Sessions as the nation’s top law enforcement officer. “I’m so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me. He was the first senator that endorsed me. And he wanted to be attorney general, and I didn’t see it,” he said. “And then he went through the nominating process and he did very poorly. I mean, he was mixed up and confused, and people that worked with him for, you know, a long time in the Senate were not nice to him, but he was giving very confusing answers. Answers that should have been easily answered. And that was a rough time for him.Sessions recused himself under pressure from congressional Democrats and after some Republicans said he should not take part in overseeing the Russian investigation at Justice. During his confirmation hearings, he failed to mention two meetings with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. In announcing his recusal, Sessions said that he had consulted with Justice Department officials over the decision and that he had not meant to mislead members of the Senate over the meetings. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein became the lead Justice official on the Russia investigation because of the Sessions recusal. Rosenstein also appointed special counsel Robert Mueller after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. The president suggested Sessions's experience going through the nominating process in the Senate may have impacted his performance as attorney general. “He gets in and probably because of the experience that he had going through the nominating when somebody asked him the first question about Hillary Clinton or something he said ‘I recuse myself, I recuse myself,’" Trump said. “And now it turned out he didn’t have to recuse himself. Actually, the FBI reported shortly thereafter any reason for him to recuse himself. And it’s very sad what happened.” The FBI in an early 2017 email to a Sessions aide, made public last December, concluded that Sessions did not need to reveal contacts with foreign government officials that were made in the course of his work as a senator. “I recused myself not because of any asserted wrongdoing on my part during the campaign,” Sessions told the Senate Intelligence Committee last April. “But because a Department of Justice regulation, 28 CFR 45.2, required it.” Trump’s broader criticisms of Sessions may be a surprise to some lawmakers and other observers given the attorney general’s efforts to impose tougher policies on immigration. Sessions has been credited in conservative quarters for his handling of policy issues even as he has been lambasted by some on the right over the Russian probe. At the same time, speculation that Trump could decide to fire Sessions has been growing. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who speaks frequently with Trump, in August said the president deserved to have an attorney general he had faith in. “The president's entitled to having an attorney general he has faith in, somebody that is qualified for the job, and I think there will come a time sooner rather than later where it will be time to have a new face and a fresh voice at the Department of Justice. Clearly, Attorney General Sessions doesn't have the confidence of the president,” Graham said. Trump demurred on whether he might one day fire the attorney general. “We’ll see what happens. A lot of people have asked me to do that. And I guess I study history, and I say I just want to leave things alone, but it was very unfair what he did,” he said, referring to the recusal decision. “And my worst enemies, I mean, people that, you know, are on the other side of me in a lot of ways, including politically, have said that was a very unfair thing he did.” He concluded: "We’ll see how it goes with Jeff. I’m very disappointed in Jeff. Very disappointed."

FBI Official: FBI Agents Threatened Physical Harm to President Trump In Missing FBI Texts & Other “Frightening” Communications

Posted on January 23, 2018 by Investigative Bureau

“This is much larger than just texts between two FBI agents.” A high-ranking FBI official confirms a number of the missing 50,000 FBI text messages — as well as other text and email messages among FBI brass — reportedly discussed initiating physical harm to President Donald Trump. The FBI official urged the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — which oversees the U.S. Secret Service — to launch an investigation of the Justice Department, the FBI and all text messages missing and otherwise that threatened the President. “This is dangerous territory and all FBI text messages and personal phones should be examined,” the official said. “It would reveal some frightening conversations.” Did FBI brass discuss the assassination of President Donald Trump? If not, what was the nature of the threats against the president from inside the alleged premiere law enforcement agency in the United States? “(Director) Wray wants a lid on this,” the FBI official said. “Many know there was talk of harming Trump politically but there is a group here (in D.C. HQ) that understands it goes deeper. We need a special counsel or Homeland Security. Somebody has to clean this up outside of DOJ. It is unacceptable. “This is much larger than just texts between two FBI agents.” The FBI official called on President Trump to do what is necessary to weed out corruption in the FBI. “Text messages just don’t disappear,” the FBI official said. “Not here. Someone outside DOJ has to look at all emails and texts. These (FBI bosses) are bad people. You’ve only scratched the surface.” The high-ranking FBI official called on lawmakers and the Inspector General to focus on the text and email messages of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. The official referred to McCabe’s official and personal correspondences “an anti-Trump treasure trove.” As reported in March 2017 by True Pundit, McCabe openly threatened President Trump and then-National Security Adviser Gen. Mike Flynn, saying first we “Fuck Flynn and then we Fuck Trump” to several high-ranking FBI bosses who cheered his comment. From that True Pundit Exclusive: McCabe, the second highest ranking FBI official, emphatically declared at the invite-only gathering with raised voice: “Fuck Flynn and then we Fuck Trump,” according to direct sources. Many of his top lieutenants applauded and cheered such rhetoric. A scattered few did not. This was one of several such meetings held in seclusion among key FBI leaders since Trump was elected president, FBI sources confirm. At the congregation where McCabe went off the political rails and vowed to destroy Flynn and Trump, there were as many as 16 top FBI officials, inside intelligence sources said. No lower-level agents or support personnel were present. If you are among the millions of Americans who have pondered in recent months whether the Obama-era “Deep State” intelligence apparatus and FBI are working for or against Trump, this is the first definitive proof that the country’s once-premiere law enforcement agency has gone rogue. The non-elected hierarchy that steer the FBI have declared war on President Trump and his White House inner circle. Make no mistake. Flynn has since been indicted and plead guilty to a charge of lying to the FBI from an investigation supervised by McCabe after a FBI interview conducted by Peter Strzok, one of the agents busted sending anti-Trump texts. And Trump remains under investigation by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a figure linked to several conflicts of interest in the case including prior deals with McCabe. As reported yesterday in True Pundit, members of the FBI and Justice Department’s top brass at their Washington D.C.headquarters and other field offices are now using burner phones to stay under the radar of federal investigators and lawmakers, according to FBI insiders. The shocking revelations come on the heels of news that the FBI deleted thousands of text messages between anti-Trump FBI agents before investigators could review their content. While that is disturbing on one level, FBI and DOJ hierarchy employing the telecom habits of drug cartel bosses reaches a new low for the once-heralded federal law enforcement agency and the DOJ. And breaks federal laws as well. The FBI “failed to preserve” five months worth of text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the two FBI employees who made pro-Clinton and anti-Trump comments while working on the Clinton email and the Russia collusion investigations. And now more text messages are missing from more FBI agents, according to the Justice Department. That means 50,000 text messages. Fifty. Thousand. Per The Hill yesterday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday announced the Justice Department will investigate missing text messages sent between two FBI agents critical of President Trump, joining the chorus of Republican lawmakers who are eager to recover the exchange. GOP officials have seized on the messages as evidence of FBI bias against Trump in the probes into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server as secretary of State. “We will leave no stone unturned to confirm with certainty why these text messages are not now available to be produced and will use every technology available to determine whether the missing messages are recoverable from another source,” Sessions said in a statement.

Practicing for Impeachment of Assassination? Where You Are At, Is Where You Will Stay When Martial Law Is Declared-Bob Griswold-The CSS

By Dave Hodges

There is a trend that I am seeing emerge with regard to secondary, but mainstream media. Controversial concepts are portrayed in shows and then the show is pulled even when it out-draws the competition. This trend has continued to articles and videos on my website which deals with the topic of martial law and the implementation of martial law. Predictive Programming I was speaking with David Knight, Steve Quayle and Gary Haevin last weekend at the Legends Conference. I was talking about the mysterious pulling of the show Colony, on USA Network. The show was popular and had an almost cult following. Yet it was canceled. Normally, a show that has a very dedicated base, but relatively low rankings is moved to a less popular time slot to compete against lesser shows. Subsequently, I was shocked when the show was canceled. If you are not familiar with the show, the plot is based upon high tech martial which is brutal and very deadly. It makes the German SS and Gestapo look like Sesame Street characters by comparison. Like so many shows on USA Network, well-conceived shows come and go. It is almost as if they want to deliver a message for desensitization purposes and then take it down when the mission is complete. Two other shows on USA Network suffered the same fate recently. They were Mark Wahlberg’s Shooter which was about the violent part of the Deep State who carries out their mini regime changes with deadly precision. The other show that bit the proverbial dust despite great ratings was a show called The Americans. This show was about the Russian infiltration of American society in Reagan years. The entire spy apparatus as well as the Russian plans were revealed in the show. The show was fascinating and both canceled shows, hinted at martial law at various points in their respective shows. USA Network should change their name to The Desensitization Network! Topics Related to Martial Law Are Being Censored Even on The Common Sense Show When martial law takes effect, it will come like a thief in the night and where you are at is where you will stay when martial law is rolled out. One better learn how to survive in whatever environment that they are trapped. Recently, I interviewed survivalist expert, Bob Griswold, as he shared his secrets of survival in a variety of environments. It is Bob’s contention that when martial law comes, there will be no, to little, warning of what is coming. The plans to cut off and cordon off segments of cities and rural from suburban will be rolled out in the blink of an eye. The interview I conducted with Bob was one of the most informative interviews I have ever done on The Common Sense Show. The interview is listed at the end of this article. There is an emerging pattern with my audience that is undeniable. I published my interview with Robert Griswold less than 15 hours ago. And I already have received 18 notices that look like the following emails: 403 Forbidden A potentially unsafe operation has been detected in your request to this site. Dave, when coming to your site to look at your interview with Robert Griswold and some related martial law facts, I was met with this notice and could not get around it in order to view your interview. I caught part of it on Sunday night and wanted to listen to the rest. But you are being blocked. The question is are you being blocked because of who you are or because they don’t want you talking about martial law? I bet it is the latter. A loyal listener, Marcus Moore Dave, FYI….this is what I get trying to link to your article. Must be pretty powerful! lol!

where-you-are-at-is-where-you-will-stay-when-martial-law-is-declared-bob-griswold-the-css 

I believe the following email, of which I have received 3 others like this in the past week, talks about variables that I think are connected to a possible round up of US citizens, while the country is in a state of martial law, by using our personal information against us. Before reading the communication, I want to remind people that a few year ago, on my radio show, Steve Quayle stated that social media outlets, like Facebook, now called Faces of Death Book, could and would provide personal information which could put people in danger with an occupation force. Keep this in mind as you read the next email. Hi Dave: xxxx xxxx here in Canyon Lake. It’s not just in China – It’s here NOW. What happened to me this morning. Went to www.stevequayle.com  this morning. Clicked on: Interesting: Former Navy Seal tells what he saw while diving in Arctic. This took me to YouTube. I’m always interested in reading some of the comments on articles, so while the “Ad” was playing I scrolled down to comments. There it was in the first comment place was a statement: Commenting publicly as xxxx@gmail.com and my personal cell phone number. I was quite taken aback. They are using it here!!!!!!!! Also, check out Breitbart’s article today: Report: Google will link searches to personal phone numbers in China by Breitbart writer Allum Bokhari. Thanks for all you do! WOW it’s HERE NOW. This is how enemies of the state lists are created for marital law purposes. In another, much more telling email, I received the following. Dear Dave, I live in North Carolina and luckily we only got a some water and wind damage, but we are ok. I must tell you that I am scared to death to report and please do not release anything that will cause the authorities to know who I am. Please I beg you but you need to know and tell the people. North Caroline is being sectioned off. It is not just Wilmington that is isolated by natural factors. There are several communities in which travel is not allowed. I swear Dave we under martial law and FEMA is everywhere. They are practicing for martial law. Do you know about this? Thanks for everything to you do for us. Conclusion There is an emerging pattern that I am seeing here. References to martial law and the practicing of martial are both in play. Please keep in mind that these published communications represent a far larger body of information. Who’s behind this? Should we be concerned. I say yes. President Trump is not behind this. Obviously, FEMA is up to no good and the Deep State is alive and well in the agency. I have noticed that many of the Deep State plans are proceeding unabated, Trump’s administration notwithstanding. I know it is early to draw these conclusions, but the trend curve seems clear. When Trump is no longer the President, the country is going directly into martial law and we are being prepared for this eventuality. I would expect that we are witnessing the rehearsal for either assassination or impeachment.

How Satanists EXPOSED IN TOM HORN’S “SABOTEURS” Are Working To Stop Trump And His Evangelical Supporters

September 18, 2018 by SkyWatch Editor

President Donald Trump is only a year and a half into his presidency and he remains one of the most controversial political figures of the day. Despite this, evangelical Christians have expressed their faithful support for him and his conservative policies. One group dedicated to challenging evangelicals and their positive relationship with the administration is The Satanic Temple (TST). “The Satanic Temple attracted ‘thousands’ of new members in just the first 36 hours after the election of Donald Trump,” the group reported. “The 4-year-old temple, which had a pre-Trump membership of around 50,000, has never before seen a spike in registration nearly this big.” (READ MORE)

'They Are Taking Over': How Satanists Are Working to Stop Trump and His Evangelical Supporters

09-12-2018 Emily Jones

President Donald Trump is only a year and a half into his presidency and he remains one of the most controversial political figures of the day. Despite this, evangelical Christians have expressed their faithful support for him and his conservative policies. But on the other side, The Satanic Temple (TST) has been very public about its efforts to challenge evangelicals and their positive relationship with the administration. Founded in 2012, The Satanic Temple (not to be confused with the Church of Satan) is a non-theistic organization that has gained prominence since President Trump's election. The group reported it gained "thousands of new members" after Trump won the presidential race. "The Satanic Temple attracted 'thousands' of new members in just the first 36 hours after the election of Donald Trump," the group reported. "The 4-year-old temple, which had a pre-Trump membership of around 50,000, has never before seen a spike in registration nearly this big." "We're definitely a resistance movement," spokesperson and co-founder Lucien Greaves said after a speech outside the University of Colorado Boulder. "We stand in stark opposition to this idea that we must unify under a single religious banner." "We're on the front lines of some of these battles against theocratic encroachment, especially with characters like Mike Pence holding such a high office," he added. Since the election, The Satanic Temple has launched multiple campaigns aimed at challenging Christian influence in the political sphere. One example is their After School Satan Clubs. "The very reason we started the After School Satan Clubs was to offer an alternative to coercive religious proselytizing inflicted on children through evangelical after-school clubs, and we only offer our club in schools where the evangelical presence already exists," Greaves said in an interview. "The schools have to understand, if they allow evangelical clubs, they can't turn away the Satanists." Other efforts include advocating for abortion rights and the erection of Satanic monuments. Last month, The Satanic Temple, protested Arkansas' approval of a Ten Commandments monument on Capitol grounds. The group said the Christian statute was a violation of the "First Amendment and religious plurality." They filed a lawsuit and erected their own 8-foot statue of the occult deity Baphomet on the same grounds. It is all in an effort to rally against "Evangelical Nationalism" and the "Theocratic Right," Greaves says. "They are taking over the public offices and overturning Liberal Democracy," he said in an interview. Ultimately, the group is about glorifying rebellion. They claim they don't even worship Satan or believe he is a personal being. Instead, they focus on rebelling against "tyrannical" authority, secularism, and theism. "We do not promote a belief in a personal Satan," TST says on its website. "Satan is symbolic of the Eternal Rebel in opposition to arbitrary authority, forever defending personal sovereignty even in the face of insurmountable odds. Satan is an icon for the unbowed will of the unsilenced inquirer… the heretic who questions sacred laws and rejects all tyrannical impositions." However, many Satanist groups do worship Satan as their lord. Some of them are sitting in the pews of American churches, according to former Satanist Bill Schnoebelen. He says that some hardcore Satanists try to infiltrate churches and other Christian organizations to sabotage them. Whether they are a political group or not, former Satanist John Ramirez told CBN News that Satanic power is very real, and Christians should not underestimate the power of prayer to fight against dark spiritual forces. "It is those believers, it's that group of people, those intercessors that gave me such a beatdown in the spiritual," he said. In his book, Armed and Dangerous: The Ultimate Battle Plan for Targeting and Defeating the Enemy, Ramirez details why Christians need to pray more effectively. "I wrote this book because I wanted Christians to know that it's not only a defense spiritual warfare, but there's an offense spiritual warfare," he said. "We need to keep the devil, the devil in his place."

Florence kills 5,500 pigs and 3.4 million chickens. The numbers are expected to rise.

By John Murawski  jmurawski@newsobserver.com  September 18, 2018 03:22 PM Updated September 19, 2018 06:39 PM  

The number of hogs and poultry killed in Hurricane Florence flooding is already double the casualties from Matthew in 2016, and the losses are expected to mount this week as new information comes in from farmers as they gain access to their properties. Meanwhile, the number of hog waste lagoons in North Carolina that are damaged or overflowing continues to increase. The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said Tuesday that so far 3.4 million chickens and turkeys have been killed by Florence, and 5,500 hogs have perished since the storm deluged the state. In preparation for the advancing storm, farmers were moving their swine to higher land, but the intensity of the flooding exceeded all expectations. The N.C. Pork Council said some of the hogs drowned in flood waters, and others were killed by wind damage to barns.

Report: Daily Caller Confirms Kavanaugh Protesters Given Soros Cash for Arrests; Planning ‘Ugly, Ugly’ Protests to ‘Shut Down’ Monday Hearing

by Kristinn Taylor September 18, 2018 136 Comments 13.1KShare 180Tweet Email

The Daily Caller posted an exclusive report Tuesday on a conference call with anti-Kavanaugh protest groups in which the Soros funded groups spoke about giving cash on the spot to protesters to pay their fines for being arrested for disrupting Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee this month. Over 200 protesters were arrested during the four days of hearings. The groups plan to “get very ugly, ugly” and “shut down” a scheduled hearing on Monday that Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a drunken high school party decades ago. Ford has not confirmed whether she will attend the hearing.

The payments were first reported by Adam Schindler.  The groups plan to “get very ugly, ugly” and “shut down” a scheduled hearing on Monday that Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a drunken high school party decades ago. Ford has not confirmed whether she will attend the hearing. Excerpt from the Daily Caller exclusive reported by Peter Hasson and Joe Simonson: Left-wing groups funded by George Soros and other major Democratic donors hand out cash to protesters arrested for disrupting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, the activists revealed Monday night. A coalition of activist organizations including Women’s March, the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) and Housing Works have scheduled the near-constant disruptions at the Kavanaugh hearings as part of an organized effort to derail the confirmation process in a series of meetings since he was first nominated. The cash from the donor-funded groups goes toward the protesters’ post-and-forfeit payments — a small cash sum paid to resolve low-level misdemeanor crimes and avoid jail time. …Because Kavanaugh no longer has a hearing on Thursday, the protesters are instead going to target a confirmation hearing for lower court nominees, who Davis described as “other gross judges” who are even more radical. The activists plan to “shut down” Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings on Monday, Davis said. “Just because they’ve delayed something doesn’t mean we’re done. It’s actually going to get very very ugly.” Disrupting the hearings were constantly described throughout the call as acts of “civil disobedience” by organizers. The three organizers, who took turns speaking throughout the call, explained that protesters should expect to pay up to $50 per arrest at Thursday and Monday’s hearings. The activists said they will have cash ready for would-be disrupters on Thursday and Monday, as they did when disrupting the previous hearings.”… End excerpt. Please read the entire Daily Caller report at this link. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) told Hugh Hewitt in an interview Tuesday morning he planned to allow the protesters to disrupt the hearing on Monday, but that Capitol Police would be making arrests as they did before. HH: Yes, you do. And in fact, even when the protesters jump…do you expect more protesters if Judge Kavanaugh shows up on Monday if he is testifying? Do you expect we’ll have a repeat of last week? CG: Yes, and that’s their Constitutional right to do it. They don’t have, they have a Constitutional right to speak. They don’t have a Constitutional right to interfere with the committee, so that’s why the police take them out. So I think that I, as far as the demonstrators are concerned, I’m going to be laser-focused on an even-handed and a fair hearing. And so I’ll keep the hearing going while the police take them out. I tell the police, you do your job, I’m not going to do like a lot of chairmen do, shut down the whole committee meeting until the room is empty. I want to use the time as efficiently as I can.”

Russia Threatens “Adequate Response” Against Israel For Downed Plane

“As a result of the Israeli military’s irresponsible actions 15 Russian servicemen died,” said Defense Ministry Spokesman Gen. Igor Konashenkov.

Zero Hedge - September 18, 2018

Update 4: The Russian Ministry of Defense cleared up the confusion surrounding the overnight downing of a Russian Ilyushin-20 reconnaissance plane on Tuesday when a spokesman revealed that Israel was indeed responsible for the attack, which resulted in the deaths of 15 Russian servicemen. According to the Wall Street Journal, the plane was accidentally brought down by an aging Syrian S-200 defense system after Russia had scrambled its jets to respond to an attack by four Israeli F-16s on Syrian government targets. Israeli notified Russia of its attack over a shared hotline less than a minute before beginning the strike, giving the Kremlin little time to respond.As a result of the Israeli military’s irresponsible actions 15 Russian servicemen died,” said Defense Ministry Spokesman Gen. Igor Konashenkov. Israel has carried out roughly 200 strikes in Syria over the past year and a half as it pushes back against Tehran’s growing presence in the war-torn battle zone. Moscow has the right to “respond adequately” to the attack, Konashenkov said. Update 3: In a breaking report CNN has cited Pentagon officials who say the missing Russian aircraft with 14 service members on board, now subject of a Russian search-and-rescue operation, was accidentally shot down by Syrian missile defense. Pentagon sources say further that Israel was responsible for the nighttime attack, which reportedly involved strikes by air and possibly by sea from the Mediterranean. Israel has yet to issue comment. But Russia says its radar picked up a French warship firing in the area just before the Russian patrol aircraft went down. According to CNN: A Russian maritime patrol aircraft with multiple personnel on board was inadvertently shot down by Syrian regime anti-aircraft artillery on Monday after the Syrians came under attack by Israeli missiles, according to a US official with knowledge of the incident The US official said the regime was actually trying to stop a barrage of Israeli missiles. A second official confirmed that Israel was responsible for the missile strikes on the Syrian regime. The Pentagon sources cite a radio broadcast in making the claim of an accidental shootdown, however it’s not clear if their assessment is based on actual US intelligence or speculation. The CNN report continues: The US found out about the incident because Syrian forces broadcast an emergency search and rescue radio call on an international frequency. The US then got a direct message from another country about the type of aircraft and circumstances of the incident. The official would not identify that country, but it is likely that Russia is the only nation that would know exactly what type of aircraft was shot down. The Pentagon formally denied any US role in the attack soon after it was first reported. This is sure to evoke a new round of dangerous and fierce US-Russia controversy over Syria as already there are accusations and counter-accusations amidst the breaking reports. update 2: The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) reports in the aftermath of Monday night’s wide-scale attack on multiple locations in Syria that a Russian military Il-20 aircraft with 14 service members on board is not detectable via radar, and that a rescue mission is underway. And alarmingly RT claims the following citing the Russian Defense Ministry: Russian radars also registered the launch of missiles from a French frigate in the Mediterranean on the evening of September 17. The MoD also said it observed a French frigate in the area at the time. Reports TASS via a Russian defense official: “On September 17, at about 11:00 Moscow time, the connection with the crew of the Russian Il-20 aircraft was lost over the Mediterranean Sea when the plane was returning to the airbase of Khmeimim, 35 kilometers from the coast of Syria,” the official said. The ministry specified that “the mark of IL-20 went off the radars disappeared during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia.” “At the same time, the Russian radars fixed missile launches from the French frigate Auvergne, which was in that area,” the Defense Ministry said. The official also said that there were 14 servicemen on board and their fate is unknown. The command of Russia’s air base at Khmeimim launched a search and rescue operation. update: The Pentagon has formally denied that tonight’s massive sustained attack on Syria had US involvement. US-funded VOA News reports a Pentagon spokesman issuing the following statement: “I can unequivocally say this is not us,” said Navy Cmdr. Sean Robertson. Regional sources report, citing Syrian officials, that Monday night’s attack involved “cruise missiles fired from the sea”. Earlier: Another attack on Syria has occurred tonight on multiple locations in what is the largest sustained series of what are believed to be Israeli or possibly US air strikes in months. But hugely significant is that early reports suggest Russia’s S-400 anti-missile missile defense system engaged the inbound rockets. On Monday night Syrian state-run SANA confirmed multiple missiles fired “from the sea into Lattakia city” in “an aggression from unknown source” which state media says involved successful intercepts by Syrian missile defense. British-Syrian journalist Danny Makki, currently reporting from the ground, says the attack “lasted for a total of 1 hour 30 minutes” and missiles soared over four cities including Latakia, Tartus, Homs and Hama — with rockets and explosions lighting up the sky especially over the coastal towns. Though it appears another Israeli strike – as it came less than two days following an attack near Damascus – the details are still unknown, and some observers are speculating it could be an American attack, given that at least some of the missiles were fired from the sea. SANA reports “an aggression on Lattakia has targeted the Technical Industries’ establishment” adding that “the air defenses intercepted and downed a number of the missiles”. Multiple journalists in the region further said that Syrian air defenses were activated across four provinces including Latakia and Tartus on the coast, as well as over Homs and Hama which are more inland. The initial major strike on Latakia, located on the Syrian coast, reportedly targeted a Syrian Scientific Research Center (SSRC) facility, and newly published video and images from Syrian sources show massive fireballs lighting up the sky. But significantly the location of the strike is in the vicinity of Russia’s Hmeymim airbase, and there are early unconfirmed reports that Russia engaged the inbound assault via its advanced S-400 system. According to the Middle East Institute’s Charles Lister, “Reports suggest Russia air defenses in Hmeymim participated in attempting to repel tonight’s strikes in Latakia.” Lister continued, “*IF* that’s true, that’d be a significant development. Some reports also say strikes came from sea; leading to accusations of a U.S naval cruise missile attack.” Unconfirmed local eyewitness accounts say that two hostile aircraft were shot down during the lengthy assault. A number of videos are circulating on Syrian social media which purport to show successful Syria or Russian missile defense intercepts during the sustained attacks. As yet, there’s been no confirmation of who carried out the attack; however, a report early this month cited Tel Aviv sources who confirmed that Israel’s Air Force has conducted 200 attacks on locations inside Syria over the course of the past 2 years alone, according to Reuters. The major escalation comes just after Russia’s Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan met Monday to announce that a demilitarized zone in Idlib will be formed by October 15.

Backlash after Sarah Sanders slammed for Christian faith

'It's no wonder nobody trusts the media anymore. It's all garbage'

Published: 2 days ago

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been targeted by establishment media outlets not only because of the messaging she provides on behalf of President Trump. It’s also because of her strong Christian faith. WND columnist Mychal Massie wrote recently, “God-fearing righteous women are not threatened by the likes of those who mocked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and those who thought it was OK to do so. “Truly independent women who strive to honor God understand that they are above such taunts. Those who attack them do so because they know if they lived to be 500 years old, they would never ‘attain the excellency’ they envy in Sarah Huckabee Sanders.” Now the New Yorker has published a piece putting in its own spotlight on Sanders and her faith. The magazine promoted the article in a tweet. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders attends a D.C. church that is an affiliate of Hillsong, the global megachurch that teaches creationism and intelligent design. Sanders, asked if she shared these views, said, ‘I believe in the Bible.'The profile referred to Sanders as Trump’s “battering ram” and went into depth about her evangelical beliefs and the pastoral role of her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Twitter member James Brady reacted to the New Yorker’s tweet: “Come on, why do you have to go here? Everyone looked the other way at BHO’s church and pastor for years, but now it’s cool? It’s no wonder nobody trusts the media anymore. It’s all garbage.” Attacking Sanders may not be the wisest financial move, one town discovered. WND reported that the manager of The Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, harassed Sanders into leaving the establishment in June, Rockbridge Regional Tourism Board members had to approve a measure to bolster the marketing of the area. They blamed the national fury against the area on the Red Hen’s actions. The Roanoke Times said: “Director of Marketing Patty Williams said the area is still feeling effects from the controversy – the tourism office received a letter Thursday from a family in Georgia who said they would never come back to the area because of what happened. And during the immediate aftermath of the incident, the tourism office received thousands of phone calls and emails.” Not only did Red Hen owner Stephanie Wilkinson order Sanders and her family out of the restaurant, she then followed family members to a restaurant across the street, where she organized a protest. Others reacted to the New Yorker tweet and article: WhichWitch: “She attends a church that teachers from a holy book? The BIBLE even?? Why .. this is outrageous! Trump is going to be president forever.”

Jim Treacher: “Oh no. Not the Bible.”

Ricardo: “I don’t hold these same beliefs, but this is hardly news.”

Michael Garner: “Shame on you, New Yorker.”

Robert: “Wow, hard hitting journalism there.”

Magic Man: “Pretty terrible that @PressSec goes to church, believed the Bible, and seeks to honor God. Terrible values for a government representative. Eh, @NewYorker?”

Keeven: “Why does the @NewYorker dehumanize GOP women like this?”

Massie, earlier this year, wrote: “In the final analysis, those attacking Sarah realize that for all of their bravado, they are ambsace, and even that is a more generous recognition than they deserve.

“Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a standup Christian woman, and standup Christian people are persecuted, but God protects his own.”

Former Vice-President Joe Biden: Trump Supporters Are The ‘Dregs Of Society’

Mac Slavo September 17th, 2018 SHTFplan.com Comments (67) Read by 3,947 people

Former vice president Joe Biden is going on an insult tour, calling supporters of President Donald Trump the “dregs of society.” In a not-so-classy move, Biden used a pro-LGBT Human Rights Campaign annual dinner on Saturday to rip supporters of Trump and the president. According to the Daily Wire, Biden’s little moment was reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s when she called Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables.” “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said in September 2016. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.” “Despite losing in the courts, and in the court of opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made,” Biden said. “This time they — not you — have an ally in the White House. This time they have an ally. They’re a small percentage of the American people — virulent people, some of them the dregs of society.” “And instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, safety for all, the president uses the White House as the literal — literal — bully pulpit, callously — callously — exerting his power over those who have little or none,” Biden continued. “Barack and I agreed to remain silent for a while to give this administration the chance to get up and running in the first year,” Biden said. “God forgive me,” he added, making the sign of the cross as the audience vehemently applauded. “Those who try to excuse this kind of prejudice in the name of culture, I say, ‘Prejudice is prejudice and humanity is humanity — it is a crime,'” Biden said, urging those in the room to continue to oppose Trump. “Our work is not yet done by any stretch of the imagination. The stakes are much too high.” Biden and his wife Jill both acted as if the apocalypse was coming thanks to Trump’s supporters. “This is deadly earnest, we are in a fight for America’s soul,” Biden said. Jill accused Trump of being a bully. “There is nothing that makes either of us more angry than a bully. There’s nothing that’s more unfair or unjust than people using their power to try to make other people feel small, to tell them who they are or what they are capable of, to say their identity doesn’t belong,” she said. Of course, let’s not forget that this is creepy uncle Joe speaking here, so take anything this eerie guy says with a grain of salt:

Florence is the worst flood in East Coast history. Here’s how locals describe it.

By Eric Holthaus on Sep 18, 2018

Many of the dire predictions came true. In the past few days, Hurricane Florence has become the worst rainstorm in history for North Carolina, as well as the entire East Coast. The images streaming in from the thousands of square miles of flooded cities and farmlands across the Carolinas are heartbreaking. From the washed-out beach homes of the Outer Banks to the raging mountain streams in the foothills of the Appalachians, nearly the entire region is underwater. All that rain means dozens of lives have been lost, and hundreds of thousands have been displaced. Florence’s rainfall data is astonishing. The four-day accumulation of nearly 36 inches, which was measured in Elizabethtown, North Carolina, is far, far above the previous rain record for a hurricane anywhere on the East Coast. It broke the North Carolina record by nearly a foot. That much rain is more than what scientists estimate a 1,000-year level, 60-day rainstorm would drop in the region, given a stable climate: slightly more than 35 inches. Put another way, there’s a 0.1 percent chance every year that in a 60-day period the rainfall in Elizabethtown would be at least 35 inches. North Carolina took on all of that water in just four days. And as ocean waters warm and the atmosphere changes, it’s becoming increasingly clear that this storm is not just a fluke; there are more Florences in our future. The region the storm hit hardest is one of the poorest parts of the state, where virtually no one has flood insurance. As bad as it is, the waters in rivers and streams statewide are still rising. Grist corresponded with 10 Carolinians who grappled with Florence. Here are their stories, edited and condensed for clarity: Erica Sharpe, Davidson County, North Carolina There are two types of people here: The ones who panic and empty the grocery shelves, and the ones who don’t trust “the news”, and don’t prepare at all. It could have been a lot worse here, but that kind of split between people has been interesting to watch. Even the weather is dividing people now. Daniel Hallock, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (evacuated to Georgia) There were people who would not take the warnings seriously enough. Knowing you gotta leave people behind is an odd feeling. “Frankie,” Greenville, North Carolina We’re not allowed to talk to media. It’s against company policy. Many wanted to evacuate, but we deliver fuel. Management pushes gasoline drivers to fill gas stations. Roads are being washed over, sink holes created, towns flooded, but corporate wants the stations pumping. Ralph Smith, Holly Ridge, North Carolina I stayed. Where I was, near the landfall, was heavy rain and flooding. The highways were loaded with people trying to evacuate. Plus the gas stations were all full; the one in front of my house closed down early. The day before the storm, there was so much, I thought, “I might as well stay.” So, you just stay and hope for best. The flooding didn’t make it to my house directly, but the streets were extremely wet. It’s still raining so I’m conflicted on when I’ll be able to drive again. Power has been out for about two or three days. A lot of people around here are worried about their safety while trying to make it out to work in the days after the storm. I know some people that are hesitant about going back to work. I’m just hoping midway through the week it clears up. They aren’t firing anyone for not showing up this week, I know for sure. Luke Adair, Jacksonville, North Carolina The thing that stands out the most to me is just how fast the water level in the river rose. We went to bed (around midnight) and there was hardly any water in the culvert [a water conduit under a road]. When we woke up the next morning, water was halfway up the foundation. Tons of homes in our neighborhood were flooded, and they flooded so quickly that the Coast Guard had to come in and rescue two families. Evacuating was absolutely the right decision for my family. I wish more people would have evacuated as well. But I can tell you, I was glued to the TV and my phone for three days during Hurricane Florence. Not being able to check on your house is one thing, but not knowing [about] your loved ones that decided to stay was another thing. It’s just so sad to see all of these people’s homes being damaged, people losing their lives, but the support that all of eastern North Carolina has shown has been amazing. People that I don’t know have offered help and even offered up their home for us to stay. Cameron-Scott Smith, Wilmington, North Carolina I never envisioned that a storm could hit Wilmington this hard. You see it on TV, but you don’t really expect it to happen to you. The night the storm came, out power went out at around 1, while I was watching TV, and I decided to go to bed. I slept very well (which I usually don’t). In the morning I looked out the window, but it was all fogged up. I go downstairs and hear the dog whining, so I got her leash and start walking to the door that leads to garage. I pressed the button to open the garage but I forgot the power was out so I exited through the door that leads into the garage. The first thing I saw were three large fir trees toppled on each other like fallen dominos. Then I walked to the front yard and saw four trees that sat snapped in half. I looked out in the cul-de-sac which was blocked off by fallen trees. Everything was closed off by fallen trees. We haven’t had power for three days, and my mom was called into work today. She has to stay there overnight for a week Our house is so hot. My grandmother came to stay with us because her running water went out. Today we had a crew of guys who came to cut down the fallen trees. Their bulldozer ended up damaging our water line, so our water went out. So we’re left with no water or power. Johnny Wilson, Chester, South Carolina One small leak in my roof managed to drip four five-gallon buckets worth of water since yesterday evening. It was an absurd amount of rain. The mood around town has seemed pretty relieved. Everyone was worried for another Hugo. But our town ended up actually sending supplies to a nearby town because we weren’t impacted nearly as bad as expected. Alexander Zupancic, Wilmington, North Carolina (evacuated to Charlotte.) Not being able to communicate with my dad and brother scares the hell out of me. Seeing pictures of my home being torn apart by a storm breaks my heart. Nobody thinks this kind of thing happens to their home until it does. I go to UNC-Wilmington, we have no clue when we can go back or if they’ll suspend the semester. It’s hard to keep in touch, just saying goodbye to my dad was pretty hard. I did everything I could to try and make him leave, he refused, that was very stressful for me, people don’t understand the real effect a hurricane has and how scary it actually is. Jeramy “Bud” Martin, Wilmington, North Carolina (evacuated to Arkansas) I’m from Wilmington, work as an EMT, and can’t get back because of the flooding. My brothers and sisters are exhausted waiting for backup, and I’m in Arkansas with my wife’s family. I’m trying my best to get back home. I have multiple people looking for a route into town for me. There is an organization ([led by] a friend of an Army buddy) that has helped me, as well as another friend that is a pilot that has a ticket for me in Memphis going to Raleigh as soon as I can get there. When I know for a fact the roads are clear, I’m flying out and driving down to my city. My family are here and safe in Arkansas, and that’s my number one priority. So now it’s time to get back to my city and help in any way I can. Terre Logsdon, Rutherfordton, North Carolina I arrived in Rutherfordton last week from Lakeport, California, after being evacuated from the Mendocino Complex [Fire] and watching my county burn. I served in the Emergency Operations Center for [this summer’s] Valley Fire, and I was done with fires. My friends moved to North Carolina from Florida a few years earlier and [told] me to head East. After 10 days on the road, I arrived to hurricane prep. While Rutherfordton has so far only been minimally impacted, it does have me wondering if I made the right decision — or if there are any right decisions to make on where to live anymore.

Florence update: President Donald Trump visits North Carolina to see storm damage

Updated 34 mins ago

WILMINGTON, N.C. --

President Donald Trump has arrived in storm-ravaged North Carolina to take in the devastation left by Florence. Trump traveled south Wednesday as the state was still grappling with massive recovery efforts. He was heading to a briefing at a Marine Corps air station where Air Force One landed in the coastal town of Havelock, one of many communities hit by the torrential rains. Trump told reporters as he departed the White House that he will also visit South Carolina before he returns to the White House later Wednesday. Florence flooding kills 3.4 million poultry, 5,500 hogs, NC officials say The president says he wants to say "hello" to everyone from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the military that are working hard to help residents recover from the storm. Adds Trump: "I think it will be an incredible day." With Wilmington still mostly an island surrounded by Hurricane Florence's floodwaters and people waiting for hours for handouts of necessities like food, North Carolina's governor is pleading with thousands of evacuees to be patient and not return home just yet. "I know it was hard to leave home, and it is even harder to wait and wonder whether you even have a home to go back to," Gov. Roy Cooper said as officials began distributing supplies to residents of Wilmington, population 120,000. The death toll rose to at least 37 in three states Tuesday, with 27 fatalities in North Carolina, as Florence's remnants went in two directions: Water flowed downstream toward the Carolina coast, and storms raced through the Northeast and in to the Atlantic. RELATED: How Chicagoans can help hurricane victims After submerging North Carolina with nearly 3 feet (1 meter) of rain, the storm dumped more than 6.5 inches (16.5 centimeters) of rain in the Northeast, where it caused flash flooding, wind damage and prompted at least one tornado warning, the weather service said. Cooper warned that the flooding set off by the Southeastern deluge was far from over and will get worse in places. 2 sheriff's detainees die when van is swept away by flooding in S. Carolina "I know for many people this feels like a nightmare that just won't end," he said. Addressing roughly 10,000 people who remain in shelters and "countless more" staying elsewhere, Cooper urged residents to stay put for now, particularly those from the hardest-hit coastal counties that include Wilmington, near where Florence blew ashore on Friday. A second shelter is opening in Carteret County. Roads remain treacherous, he said, and some are still being closed for the first time as rivers swelled by torrential rains inland drain toward the Atlantic. National Weather Service time-lapse shows Florence from space In South Carolina, two women died after a van was overtaken by rising flood waters near the Little Pee Dee River. Marion County Coroner Jerry Richardson told The Associated Press that the women, detainees being transported to a mental health facility, drowned at around 6 p.m. Tuesday when a van tried to cross a roadway and was overtaken by water. Their names have not been released. Two other people were sent to a hospital for observation. In Wilmington, workers began handing out supplies using a system resembling a giant fast-food drive-thru: Drivers pulled up to a line of pallets, placed an order and left without having to get out. A woman blew a whistle each time drivers had to pull forward. Todd Tremain needed tarps to cover up spots where Florence's winds ripped shingles off his roof. Others got a case of bottled water or military MREs, or field rations. An olive-drab military forklift moved around huge pallets loaded with supplies. Brandon Echavarrieta struggled to stay composed as he described life post-Florence: no power for days, rotted meat in the freezer, no water or food and just one bath in a week. "It's been pretty bad," said Echavarrieta, 34, his voice breaking. Nearby, about 200 people lined up to buy 40-pound (18-kilogram) bags of ice as quickly as a Rose Ice and Coal Co. could produce it. 'This is Interstate 40': NCDOT shares video of I-40 completely flooded after Hurricane Florence Supplies have been brought into the city by big military trucks and helicopters, which also were used to pluck hundreds of desperate people from homes and other structures. Mayor Bill Saffo said two routes were now open into Wilmington, which had been completely cut off by floodwaters, but those roads could close again as water swells the Cape Fear River on the city's west side. Hurricane Florence in photos At Fayetteville, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) inland, near the Army's sprawling Fort Bragg, the Cape Fear River had risen about 50 feet (15 meters) toward a crest predicted to be more than 25 feet (7 meters) above flood level. On Tuesday, logs and other debris became trapped under a rail bridge as rushing brown water pushed against the span. The flooding got so bad that authorities closed a vehicle bridge in Fayetteville after the river began touching girders supporting the bridge's top deck. Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin said it was unclear if the bridge was threatened. "We've never had it at those levels before so we don't really know what the impact will be just yet," he said. The river swallowed trees, lamp posts and a parking lot near its banks. City officials warned still-rising water threatened some neighborhoods and businesses that seemed safe, but said the worst was nearly over and life was beginning to return to normal downtown. Businesses were re-opening and owners removed sandbags and plywood from storefronts. Human and animal waste is mixing with the swirling floodwaters, which have killed about 1.7 million chickens on poultry farms. More than 5 million gallons (18 million liters) of partially treated sewage spilled into the Cape Fear River after power went out at a treatment plant, officials said, and the earthen dam of a pond holding hog waste was breached, spilling its contents. The governor said 16 rivers statewide were at major flood stage and more than 1,100 roads were closed. Emergency workers reported rescuing and evacuating more than 2,200 people and around 575 animals, he said. In a bright spot, the Lumber River appeared to be falling in hard-hit Lumberton, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) inland. Power outages in the Southeast also were down, from a high of more than 910,000 to about 245,000, nearly all in North Carolina.

Israeli terror victim shot assailant before dying

Well known pro-Israel advocate Ari Fuld was killed in a dramatic stabbing attack by the mall in the Gush Etzion junction on Sunday morning.

By Tovah Lazaroff September 16, 2018 11:37

Mortally wounded terror victim Ari Fuld chased his attacker, jumping over a short stone wall and shooting him, before collapsing on the pavement by the mall in the Gush Etzion junction on Sunday morning. A father of four, Fuld stood between the mall and the Rami Levi supermarket when he was stabbed in the back by Khalil Yusef Ali Jabarin, 17, from the city of Yatta in the South Hebron Hills. Evacuated to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, he succumbed there to his wounds. A dual citizen of Israel and the United States, Fuld lived in nearby Efrat and had been shopping at the junction at the time of the attack. The junction’s commercial center, where the attack took place, is open to both Israelis and Palestinians and is often touted as an oasis of co-existence. But it has also been the scene of numerous terror attacks in the last three years. According to witness accounts, Jabarin hung out in the mall’s parking lot for a short while before attacking Fuld. He bought a falafel and argued with the shop owner about the price. After the attack, Assaf Shilony discovered that his pizza store’s security camera had captured the critical moments of the drama. He placed some of the footage on his phone and showed it to customers, while they waited for their pizza. The video shows that for more than an hour, Jabarin hung out in the parking lot by the mall. At times, he sat outside the pizza shop’s closed doors. Then he walked up to the corner, Shilony said. Just before the left turn to the Rami Levi supermarket, he stabbed Fuld in the back. Jabarin then fled in the direction of the mall, with Fuld chasing after him, with his gun drawn. Security footage from the pizzeria caught the chase, with panicked pedestrians racing away, Jabarin flying past and Fuld close at his heels. Gaby Vaknin, who works for the Gush Etzion Development Office, witnessed the attack. “I heard someone yell ‘terror attack!’ and saw someone young with a 30 centimeter knife stab [wound],” Vaknin said. He immediately dropped his phone and the small plastic bag he was holding in his hand. Vaknin then placed his hand on the gun he wore at his waist and he too raced after the terrorist. Vaknin said he saw Fuld shoot at Jabarin, before he collapsed from his wounds. As Jabarin neared the mall, Vaknin also shot him. The mall’s security guard, Anatoly Tal Mazan, said he heard screams and saw people running away. As the terrorist came near him, he too drew his gun and shot him. Both Jabarin and Fuld lay wounded on the pavement by the stores, a short distance from each other. Jabarin was transferred to the Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem where his condition was listed as moderate. Regional Council chairman Shlomo Ne’eman temporally moved his office to the Gush Etzion junction, near the spot where Fuld collapsed. People also placed mourner’s candles there. “There is one goal behind these attacks: disrupt our way of life. Our Arab neighbors have to deal with one question: either you live with us here and act like human beings or you choose terrorism and then pay the full price,” Ne’eman said. He called on the Israeli government and the IDF to give a harsh response and “cut the hands of terrorists.” Jerusalem Post staff contributed to this report.

Russia blames Israel after military plane shot down off Syria

18 September 2018

Russia has said Syria shot down one of its military planes - but laid the blame for the deaths of the 15 personnel on board with Israel. The defence ministry said Israeli jets put the Il-20 plane into the path of Syrian air defence systems on Monday after failing to give Moscow enough warning of a strike on Syrian targets. The Il-20 disappeared off the radar at about 23:00 local time (20:00 GMT). The Israel Defence Force (IDF) has expressed "sorrow" over the deaths. A tour of Syria - with the Russian military Russia and Turkey to create Syria buffer zone However, in a statement released on Twitter, it added: "Israel holds the [Syrian President Bashar al-]Assad regime, whose military shot down the Russian plane, fully responsible for this incident." It went on to say its jets were back in Israeli airspace by the time the missiles were launched. Israel - which also blamed Iran and Hezbollah - rarely acknowledges carrying out strikes on Syria, but an Israeli military official recently said it had hit more than 200 Iranian targets in Syria over the past 18 months. The Israeli government is concerned by what it calls Iran's "military entrenchment" in Syria, as well as shipments of Iranian weapons to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, which is fighting alongside Syrian government forces.  What exactly happened? The details are murky, and Russia's account of the incident has yet to be verified. Monday's incident is reported to have occurred about 35km (22 miles) from the Syrian coast as the Ilyushin Il-20 aircraft was returning to Russia's Hmeimim airbase near the north-western city of Latakia. Russia's Tass news agency says the Il-20 plane "disappeared during an attack by four Israeli F-16 jets on Syrian facilities in Latakia province". Reports on Syrian state media spoke of an attack in the area shortly before the plane disappeared. According to Sana news agency, the military said it had intercepted "enemy missiles coming from the open sea towards the city of Latakia". Syrian television also reported explosions over the sky in Latakia just before 22:00. Thirty minutes later, the Sana Facebook page reported that Syrian air defences had responded to enemy missiles.  What does Russia accuse Israel of doing? In a statement, Russia said Israel's "irresponsible actions" were to blame, saying it was given less than a minute's warning ahead of the strikes, which was not enough time to get the military surveillance plane out of the way. "The Israeli planes deliberately created a dangerous situation for surface ships and aircraft in the area," a defence ministry spokesman said. The spokesman accused Israeli pilots of "using the Russian airplane as a cover", putting it "in the line of fire coming from Syrian air defence systems". Photos 'reveal' Russia jet damage at Hmeimim base Why is there a war in Syria? The plane, the spokesman continued, was shot down by a Syrian missile. "As a result of the irresponsible actions by the Israeli military, 15 Russian servicemen have died," the spokesman said. It is not possible to verify any of these claims. What has Israel said? The IDF said its jets were targeting Syrian military facilities "from which systems to manufacture accurate and lethal weapons were about to be transferred on behalf of Iran to Hezbollah in Lebanon". It added the Syrian anti-aircraft missiles were "inaccurate" and "extensive". What's more, it claimed its jets were back in Israeli airspace by the time the missiles were launched. The statement also accused the Syrian military of failing "to ensure that no Russian planes were in the air", adding it would share the relevant information with Moscow. In an earlier phone call on Tuesday, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu told his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman the blame "fully rests with Israel", adding that Russia "reserves the right to take further steps in response". Russia later summoned the Israeli ambassador to its foreign ministry. A search-and-rescue operation is under way. Are the accusations fair? Analysis by Jonathan Marcus, BBC Defence Correspondent Russia's anger is real. But the question is, are the Russians attributing blame fairly? The charges are two-fold. Long-standing and up to now effective information-sharing broke down. The Israeli Air Force has Russian-speaking air traffic controllers able to communicate with their Russian opposite numbers. But Moscow says they were informed of the Israeli raid with only one minute's notice. Secondly Russia charges - more seriously - that the Israelis used the large radar signature of the Ilyushin turbo-prop to mask their own aircraft. But the radar signatures of the relatively slow Ilyushin and four nimble F-16 jets are radically different. Furthermore, the Syrian air defences should have known the Russian plane was in-bound, whatever the Israelis were doing. There may be several contributory factors in this tragedy. Russia cannot publicly castigate its Syrian allies. In private things may be rather different. Why is a Russian aircraft in Syria? Russia began military strikes in Syria in 2015 after a request from President Bashar al-Assad, who has stayed in power despite seven years of civil war which has so far killed more than 350,000 people. The Russian military said in April of this year it had also spent 18 months helping to rebuild the air defence system, according to the UK's Guardian newspaper. Hmeimim is Russia's main base for air strikes on rebel groups in Syria - strikes that have enabled President Assad's forces to recover much lost ground since 2015. Russia says its air strikes only target "terrorists", but activists have said they mainly hit mainstream rebel fighters and civilians. According to The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, at least 7,928 civilians and 10,069 combatants have been killed in Russian strikes. Russia has also suffered personnel losses, including the deaths of 39 people when a Russian military transport plane crashed as it attempted to land at Hmeimim in March.

‘Sesame Street’ Writer: Bert & Ernie were Written as a Gay ‘Loving Couple’

Mark Saltzman, a longtime writer for the hit children’s television show Sesame Street, reveals characters Bert and Ernie are gay, ending years of speculation about the status of the duo’s relationship. In a sit-down interview with Queerty, Saltzman revealed Bert and Ernie were based on his own relationship with Arnold Glassman, an award-winning documentary film editor. “I remember one time a preschooler [in San Francisco] turned to her mum and asked, ‘are Bert and Ernie lovers?’ and that, coming from a preschooler, was fun,” the writer, who joined Sesame Street in 1984, told the same-sex lifestyle magazine. “That got passed around, and everyone had their chuckle and went back to it,” he added. ”And I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert and Ernie, they were. I didn’t have any other way to contextualise them.” Saltzman claimed people close to him knew that the characters’ relationship was inspired by his relationship with Glassman and said he personally identified more with Ernie than Bert. “I look more Bert-ish. And Arnie as a film editor — if you thought of Bert with a job in the world, wouldn’t that be perfect? Bert with his paperclips and organisation?” he said. “And I was the jokester. So, it was the Bert and Ernie relationship, and I was already with Arnie when I came to Sesame Street.” “So I don’t think I’d know how else to write them, but as a loving couple. I wrote sketches… Arnie’s OCD would create friction with how chaotic I was. And that’s the Bert and Ernie dynamic,” he added. The official Sesame Street Twitter account tweeted a statement Tuesday, saying while Bert and Ernie “are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most Sesame Street Muppets do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.” According to Pink News, the Sesame Street pair is widely viewed within the LGBT movement as “gay icons. Following the New York State Legislature’s passage of the Marriage Equality Act, a petition was launched calling for Bert and Ernie to be married. In response to the petition, Sesame Street claimed the pair were “created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves” “Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics, they remain puppets and do not have a sexual orientation,” the statement continued.

Trump Administration Shutting Down PLO Mission in Washington

Why it's the right thing to do.

September 17, 2018 Joseph Puder

In announcing the closure of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) mission in Washington, DC on September 10, 2018, the U.S. State Department asserted that the Palestinians have failed to take steps “to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel.” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert added that the decision was prompted by Palestinian plans to bring charges against Israel for war crimes to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Nauert stated that “The U.S. continues to believe that direct negotiations between the two parties are the only way forward.” She added, “We are not retreating from our efforts to achieve a lasting and comprehensive peace.” Nauert pointed out that the Palestinian leadership “has condemned the U.S. peace plan they have not yet seen and refused to engage with the U.S. government with respect to peace efforts and otherwise. As such, and reflecting congressional concerns, the administration has decided that the PLO office in Washington will close at this point.” The Palestinian leadership, in its unwillingness to have direct negotiations with Israel or reach a compromise that would afford them sovereignty and provide Israel with security, is resorting to the familiar Palestinian-Arab stance that is almost a century old. No to the Peel Commission of 1937 that gave Palestinian-Arabs 75% of Western Palestine and 25% to the Palestinian Jews. No to the 1947 UN Partition Plan, which would have given the Palestinian-Arabs a sovereign state. (No to peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel or negotiations with it as resolved at the Khartoum Arab League Summit on September 1, 1967.) No commitment to the Oslo Peace Process (which ended with Arafat’s initiated Second Intifada in September, 2000). It is premised on the Arab-Palestinians unwillingness to share the land with the Jews and their equal refusal to recognize the historical Jewish connection to the Land of Israel. In appealing to the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Palestinians are using it as a subterfuge to avoid negotiations with Israel. Instead, they are alleging that Israel committed crimes in response to the recent clashes with Hamas, and that Israeli settlements are illegal. As for the settlements, Israeli’s have as much right to settle in the Judea and Samaria as the Palestinians have. The “West Bank” is not Palestinian land. It was Jordanian land until June, 1967. Jordan occupied the area during the 1948 War of Independence, and annexed it in 1950, an act which was only recognized by Britain and Pakistan. The area was ostensibly designated to be part of the Arab-Palestinian state under the 1947 Partition Plan (UN Resolution 181). The Palestinian-Arabs rejected the Partition Plan and chose instead to liquidate the newly born Jewish state in what was to become Israel’s 1948 War. Following the Six Day War of June, 1967, the UNSC 242 declared that Israel should withdraw from “territories.” It specifically said not from all territories, in exchange for full peace (which Egypt and Jordan agreed to, and received in return their claims to the Sinai and portions of land along the Jordan River). It clearly meant that Israel had the right to portions of the (West Bank) territory. Therefore, the areas true designation is that of “Disputed Territory.” The only way to resolve this dispute is by direct negotiations between the two parties. Describing the territories as “occupied Palestinian territories” serves only the political agenda of the Palestinians and prejudges the outcome of future negotiations between the parties. In his Address to the Nation on September 1, 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared, I have followed and supported Israel’s heroic struggle for survival, ever since the founding of the State of Israel 34 years ago. In the pre-1967 borders, Israel was barely 10 miles wide at its narrowest point. The bulk of Israel’s population lived within artillery range of hostile Arab armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again. The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas has organized the Gaza march over the border with Israel. Using Palestinian civilians as “human shields,” they fired at Israeli soldiers defending the border and protecting the civilian population in nearby Negev communities. Hamas has also provocatively fired rockets into Israel, targeting civilians including kindergartens. Palestinian charges are so ludicrous that only biased international bodies such as the ICC would accept the charges of the Palestinians. According to Israel’s Foreign Ministry, the ICC lacks jurisdiction over the Israeli-Palestinian issue, since Israel (like the U.S.), is not a member of the court, and because the Palestinian Authority (PA) is not a state. On September 10, 2018, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton, appearing before the Federalist Society, said that the ICC is “illegitimate and for all intents and purposes, is already dead to us” and was biased against Israel and called the institution as a whole, “Ineffective, unaccountable, and indeed, outright dangerous.” He went on to say, While the court welcomes the membership of the so-called State of Palestine, it has threatened Israel, a liberal, democratic nation, with investigation into its actions to defend its citizens from terrorist attacks in the West Bank and Gaza. There has also been a suggestion that the ICC will investigate Israeli construction of housing projects on the West Bank. Bolton added, If the court comes after us, Israel, or other U.S. allies, we will not sit quietly, we will ban its judges and prosecutors from entering the U.S. We will sanction their funds in the U.S. financial system, and we will prosecute them in the U.S. criminal system. We will do the same for any company or state that assists an ICC investigation of Americans. Zeev Jabotinsky, one of the giants of Zionism and the founder of Jewish self-defense organizations such as the Haganah and the Irgun, who inspired both Prime Ministers Menachem Begin and Benjamin Netanyahu, wrote in his 1923 pamphlet The Iron Wall, that the Arabs would never voluntarily come to an agreement with the Zionists: If the Zionists wanted a foothold in Palestine, Arab violence would have to be met with an Iron Wall…As long as the (Palestinian) Arabs feel that there is at least hope of getting rid of us, they will refuse to give up this hope in return for either kind words or for bread and butter, because they are not a rabble, but a living people. And when a living people yields in matters of such vital character it is only when there is no longer any hope of getting rid of us, because they can make no breach in the iron wall. Not till then will they drop their extremist leaders, whose watchword is Never! Zeev Jabotinsky’s prophetic words are as true today as they were 95 years ago. The Palestinian people are led by extremist leaders who will never compromise as long as they are personally living well while their people suffer, and as long as they believe that Israel can be destroyed by BDS campaigns or international organizations such as the UN and ICC. The Trump administration's measures have served to fortify the Iron Wall by moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, and cutting aid money to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine (UNRWA). UNRWA has perpetuated Palestinian victimhood and refused to rehabilitate and house the refugees as Israel did with its refugees from the Arab world. Closing the Palestinian mission in Washington is yet another step that forces Palestinians to realize that Israel is here to stay, and they will have to either compromise or remain hopeless.

Bears showed ‘abnormal behavior’ in attack that killed hunting guide, Wyoming official says

By Kaitlyn Alanis kalanis@wichitaeagle.com September 17, 2018 11:10 AM Updated September 17, 2018 11:21 AM

Two grizzly bears that officials believe killed a hunting guide and mauled a hunter showed “abnormal behavior” during the attack, a Wyoming wildlife official told the Jackson Hole News & Guide. The bears — a mother and her grown cub — were aggressive during the Friday afternoon attack near the border of Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, wildlife officials said, according to USA Today. “The behavior exhibited by these bears is abnormal behavior for a family group,” Brad Hovinga with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department told the News & Guide. “It’s not typically how we would see family groups behave.” Teton County officials said the bears did not touch the elk that the two hunters were packing, but instead only “aggressively” charged the two men, according to USA Today. “The elk carcass was ‘undisturbed’ when it was located ... which suggests that the bear was not necessarily food guarding — a common behavior that often leads to conflicts with humans, especially hunters,” the News & Guide reported. “What’s uncommon is for hunter-grizzly conflicts to turn fatal for the people.” The bears killed hunting guide Mark Uptain, of Wyoming, and injured hunter Corey Chubon, of Florida, Buckrail reported. Chubon had shot an elk during a “guided bow hunt” on Thursday, but he and Uptain were unable to find the elk before nightfall. They returned on Friday to find the elk. When they found the “undisturbed carcass,” they were “aggressively charged by two large bears,” Buckrail reported. “We heard rocks stumble and out of nowhere two grizzly bears just started charging at us,” Chubon told WKMG. One of the bears then grabbed Chubbon by the back of his leg, he told WESH in a video interview. “I don’t even know if I would ever even imagine seeing “I don’t even know if I would ever even imagine seeing something like that happening in my life,” he told the station. “In probably one of the most poignant moments of all of it, when that bear did have me by the back of the leg, thinking to myself, this is it, this is my death, this is how I’m dying.” He was able to get away from the bear, though, and he then threw his gun at Uptain — but the gun didn’t make it to him, he told WESH. “Somehow, the grizzly let me go and charged Mark again and that’s when I made the decision to just run for my life,” Chubbon told the station. He then climbed back on his horse, rode to a mountain to get cell service and called for help, WKMG reported. Uptain’s body was found Sunday afternoon about a quarter mile away from the attack, the News & Guide reported. His body was intact. “Mark Uptain passed away in a tragic hunting accident,” a family-friend wrote on his GoFundMe page. “He was doing one of activities he had extreme passion for. An experienced hunting guide in the backcountry of Wyoming.” He is survived by his wife and five kids, according to the fundraising page.

Something Huge Is Coming: Rapid Series Of Events Shows Groups Are 'Pulling Out All The Stops' To Manipulate Midterm Elections

September 13, 2018 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

There is an old idiom "pull out all the stops," which references the use of all the resources or force at one's disposal in order do everything they possibly can to make something happen in the way that they want it to, and a look at some of the news we are seeing this past week, shows us that the media, big tech and liberals (Yes, I know they are all the same thing) are doing exactly that ahead of the midterm elections in order to manipulate the outcome. THE DAMN IS BREAKING A number of seemingly unrelated events are occurring simultaneously which when one takes a step back and looks at them all as a whole, rather than separate occurrences, indicates something huge is coming as we near the midterm elections. On Wednesday we detailed the flurry of recent attacks against conservatives, online and off, including, but not limited to; The attempted murder of a GOP candidate in California, and; Rape and death threats against a female conservative writer, forcing her to hide out in her own home. (Read more on that in the ANP article here) Since that article, we have noted another strange form of protest by an unhinged, deranged Las Vegas, liberal professor who thought that shooting himself on school property was a good way to protest President Trump. Big Tech Censors #WalkAway Founder: As many know by now there is a new movement that has become huge after a gay hairdresser from New York, Brandon Straka, created a viral video explaining why, after voting for Barack Obama, twice, he walked away from the Democratic party. Thousands started using the #WalkAway hashtag on Twitter to tell their stories of when they too felt the need to #WalkAway from the Democratic and why. The media then went into full damage-control mode and started claiming that "Russian bots" were behind the #WalkAway campaign and hashtag. Then Americans started using video to explain that 1) They are not Russian bots, and; 2) Why they needed to #WalkAway. Powerful testimonials, citing liberal media bias, the violence being perpetrated by the left against MAGA supporters and conservatives, lies they had been told and only discovered them after they started to research on their own and stopped trusting the liberal establishment media. The movement exploded online and offline and the founder, Brandon Straka decided to organize a #WalkAway March for October, and has been working towards that goal for weeks. Now big tech has stepped in to prevent Mr. Straka from promoting his rally, with Facebook banning him from promoting his event and his interviews, because he dared promote his own interview with Alex Jones. (Facebook and over a dozen others colluded to block Alex Jones on their platforms, all on the same day in August in one of the most blatant acts of censorship against an entity ever) Via Daily Dot: Straka said the suspension comes ahead of his planned march on Washington, D.C. and cuts him off from over 180,000 members of his #WalkAway campaign (the #WalkAway Facebook group has just over 76,000 likes). “I’m devastated right now. WalkAway Campaign is a grassroots movement. We don’t have corporate sponsors. We don’t have backers. We are raising the money and the awareness for our event ourselves. We use GoFundMe to raise money. And today Facebook took away my ability to communicate with the 180,000 members of the campaign leading up to the March,” Straka told right-wing outlet the Gateway Pundit. “This is going to smash my ability to provide information, answer questions, raise money, and rally with my people,” he continued. Note: One does not have to agree with Alex Jones to be disturbed by the coordinated censorship and the deliberate attempts to limit his online visibility, because big tech disagrees with his messaging and his opinion. The banning of Straka for nothing more than promoting his own interview regarding his #WalkAway movement is even more blatant as big tech attempts to prevent more Democrats from awakening to his message and perhaps deciding to #WalkAway themselves. Reddit Joins Big Tech In Censoring: In another act of blatant censorship, from an unexpected source and unrelated to Straka and the #WalkAway movement, we see a number of coordinated media reports about Reddit banning a QAnon subreddit. Disclaimier: While we at ANP do not report on the mysterious Q messages, we do watch, observe and research them as we do everything else, and whether the unknown person is what they call a "LARP" (Live action role-player) or someone really in the know, is of no consequence to the main point. The point is censorship, preventing a large number of people, and this Q-person has a huge following, even if many do not subscribe to the belief that he/she is anything more than someone pretending to be "in the know." When dozens of liberal establishment media outlets coordinate to report on the same story, all within hours of each other, there is always something afoot. Looking into it, we now see that not only was that one subreddit banned for violating content policies, but every Qanon-related subreddit has now been banned on Reddit, including:

/r/The_GreatAwakening

r/thegreatawakening

r/AFTERTHESTQRM

r/BiblicalQ

r/TheCalmBeforeTheStorm

r/CalmBeforeTheStorm

r/qproofs

r/QAnon_Serious

r/WWG1WGA

r/GreatAwakeningII

r/TheGreatWakeUp

r/greatest_awakening

r/great_awaken

r/QClearanceAnon

r/greatawakening2

r/TheStorm

r/QAnon

r/Quincels

r/quqanon

Now when you click any one of those subreddits, the message on the screen states "This community has been banned," and as of this writing, they all say "Banned 20 hours ago," meaning they did a sweeping ban, (censored) all subreddits at the same time, for supposedly violating their content policy. Just as I said about the coordinated ban against Alex Jones and InfoWars, one does not have to agree with them, nor believe in all their theories or messaging, to be abhorred by the blanket ban of discussion on any topic or person that others wish to discuss online. Twitter Declares Legal Term 'Illegal Alien' To Be 'Hateful Content: The definition of "illegal alien" is "a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country's authorization. The DHS definition of terms also defines the word "alien" as "Any person not a citizen or national of the United States." It appears Twitter doesn't care about proper terminology, nor legal terminology, as the Center of Immigration Studies has now been blocked from promoting any post that includes the term "illegal alien," as described in a recent set of tweets explaining Twitter's censoring of their posts. Via their Twitter account on September 11, 2018: "1/ Twitter is not allowing us to promote any tweets including the phrase "illegal alien(s)", citing it as Hateful Content. However, the phrase "illegal aliens" has been used in both federal law and by the Supreme Court." "2/ From Arizona v. United States (2012): "There is no reason Arizona cannot make it a state crime for a removable alien (or any illegal alien, for that matter) to remain present in Arizona. https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/ 11pdf/11-182b5e1.pdf" 

"3/ Title 8 of the United States Code, Section 1365: "The Attorney General shall reimburse a State for the costs incurred by the State for the imprisonment of any illegal alien or Cuban national who is convicted of a felony by such State" - https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1365 

"4/ US District Court Judge Andrew Hanen, 2015: "There is a certain segment of the population that finds the phrase ‘illegal alien’ offensive. The court uses this term because it is the term used by the Supreme Court in its latest pronouncement pertaining to this area of the law."

"5/ Code of Federal Regulations: "Illegal alien means any person who is not lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States or who has not been authorized by the Attorney General to accept employment in the United States." - https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/29/500.20 

According to their press release on this subject, CIS.ORG, provides Twitter's response to them when they inquired why the tweets were rejected, was: "We've reviewed your tweets and confirmed that it is ineligible to participate in the Twitter Ads program at this time based on our Hateful Content policy. Violating content includes, but is not limited to, that which is hate speech or advocacy against a protected group." Google Leaked Video Shows Employee Snowflakes Melting Down After 2016 Election: Last but not least, Google the "biggest" of big tech, is reeling from a leaked video that Breitbart published showing Google employees, crying, group hugging and bemoaning the loss of their favored candidate, Hillary Clinton after the 2016 presidential election. Some key moments Breitbart describes from the video shown below: (00:01:12) Returning to seriousness, Brin says he is “deeply offen[ded]” by the election of Trump, and that the election “conflicts with many of [Google’s] values.” (00:09:10) Trying to explain the motivations of Trump supporters, Senior VP for Global Affairs, Kent Walker concludes: “fear, not just in the United States, but around the world is fueling concerns, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.” (00:09:35) Walker goes on to describe the Trump phenomenon as a sign of “tribalism that’s self-destructive [in] the long-term.” (00:09:55) Striking an optimistic tone, Walker assures Google employees that despite the election, “history is on our side” and that the “moral arc of history bends towards progress.” (00:10:45) Walker approvingly quotes former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s comparison between “the world of the wall” with its “isolation and defensiveness” and the “world of the square, the piazza, the marketplace, where people come together into a community and enrich each other’s lives.” (00:13:10) CFO Ruth Porat appears to break down in tears when discussing the election result. (00:15:20) Porat promises that Google will “use the great strength and resources and reach we have to continue to advance really important values.” (00:16:50) Stating “we all need a hug,” she then instructs the audience of Google employees to hug the person closest to them. (00:20:24) Eileen Naughton, VP of People Operations, promises that Google’s policy team in DC is “all over” the immigration issue and that the company will “keep a close watch on it.” (00:27:30) Sergey Brin praises an audience member’s suggestion of increasing matched Google employee donations to progressive groups. (00:34:40) Brin compares Trump voters to “extremists,” arguing for a correlation between the economic background of Trump supporters and the kinds of voters who back extremist movements. Brin says that “voting is not a rational act” and that not all of Trump’s support can be attributed to “income disparity.” He suggests that Trump voters might have been motivated by boredom rather than legitimate concerns. (00:49:10) An employee asks if Google is willing to “invest in grassroots, hyper-local efforts to bring tools and services and understanding of Google products and knowledge” so that people can “make informed decisions that are best for themselves.” Pichai’s response: Google will ensure its “educational products” reach “segments of the population [they] are not [currently] fully reaching.” (00:54:33) An employee asks what Google is going to do about “misinformation” and “fake news” shared by “low-information voters.” Pichai responds by stating that “investments in machine learning and AI” are a “big opportunity” to fix the problem. (00:56:12) Responding to an audience member, Walker says Google must ensure the rise of populism doesn’t turn into “a world war or something catastrophic … and instead is a blip, a hiccup.”  (00:58:22) Brin compares Trump voters to supporters of fascism and communism, linking the former movement to “boredom,” which Brin previously linked to Trump voters. “It sort of sneaks up sometimes, really bad things” says Brin. Read more at Breitbart. Related: Nolte: New York Times Covered Up Google Tape’s Most Newsworthy Details Warning: Hour-long video, and many readers will need many breaks, especially after the pathetic "group hug" so everyone can feel better after seeing Clinton lose. BOTTOM LINE While the leaked Google video gives us great insight as to big techs obvious, unfiltered bias, the increased violence against conservatives, along with the coordinated efforts to prevent any message or opinion that these tech and social media giants do not approve of from becoming viral or spreading to others, makes it all the more important for readers to share what they find important, whether on social media, or via email to their contacts lists, or in comment sections or chat forums, etc.... They have ramped up all lines of attacks against Independent Media and conservative messaging to prevent open and free discussions online. Bottom line here is that if these tech companies and social media platforms are getting so blatant in their open censorship, something huge is coming because they feel the ramifications later are not as important as manipulating the upcoming midterm elections.

Understanding The Tactics Of Subversive Globalism

Wednesday, 12 September 2018 10:46 Brandon Smith

When the ideology of globalism is discussed in liberty movement circles there are often misunderstandings as to the source of the threat and what it truly represents. This may in some cases be by design. In the latest era of supposed “populism” led by figures like Donald Trump, an entirely new and very green generation of liberty activists find themselves hyper focused on the political left in general, but they seem to be obsessed with attacking the symptoms of globalism rather than the source. I attribute this to a clever propaganda campaign by globalist institutions. For example, when globalism is brought up in terms of its conspiratorial influences, the name of George Soros is usually mentioned. Soros is an obvious bogeyman for liberty activists because his money can be found flowing to numerous Cultural Marxist (social justice) organizations and his influence is easily grasped and digested in that way. Conservatives like placing emphasis on Soros because he appears decidedly leftist and thus globalism becomes synonymous with leftist movements. But what about all the globalists within the political right? Globalism has its gatekeepers in both political camps; people that manipulate or outright control political leaders and political messages on the right just as they do on the left. While someone like George Soros acts as a gatekeeper for the left, we also have people like Henry Kissinger, a globalist gatekeeper for the right. Kissinger’s close relations with the Trump administration or his long time friendship with Russia’s Vladimir Putin are brought up far less in the liberty movement these days. Why? Because this does not fit with the false narrative that the globalists are “targeting” Trump or Putin. When you examine these leaders and their ties to a vast array of globalist proponents, this claim becomes absurd. In 2016, months before the presidential election, the globalist media outlet Bloomberg published an article which salivated over the possibility that Trump would swallow up and assimilate what they called the “Tea Party,” ultimately destroying it. At that time the media used the term “Tea Party” as code for any sovereignty or constitutional group, just as the media tried to wrap us all up in the term “alt-right” after Trump’s election. There was a reason why Bloomberg found particular glee in the notion that Trump would absorb the liberty movement. The movement was becoming a decentralized threat to the globalist agenda, a threat that could not be easily quantified or dominated because it had no identifiable leadership. We were a movement based on knowledge and individual action. Our best “leaders” have been teachers, not politicians, and these were people that led by personal example, not by mandate or rhetoric. The liberty movement was winning ground in every conceivable arena, from the dismantling of the mainstream media through alternative platforms, to the great push back against social justice cultism. Something had to be done. Enter Trump, a brash pop culture icon with a flare for sensationalism. He was no statesman like Ron Paul explaining the intricacies of America’s problems in a measured way. No, Trump was like a wrecking ball, a loud and blatant message to the left that we were tired of being on the defensive and we were coming for them. But the reality was that Trump was not a necessary element of the fight. He never was. Anti-globalism and anti-social justice were already hitting the mainstream. The left was already on the run. Trump didn’t create that wave, the liberty movement did that for him, he just rode it into the White House. You’re welcome, Donald. The problem was that Trump was not what he seemed to be to many people. With all his rhetoric against the banking elites which he referred to as creatures of the “swamp” choking Washington, Trump then proceeded to load up his presidential cabinet with elitists and globalists as soon as he was elected. These very same cabinet members and advisers went on to attend globalist meetings like the secretive Bilderberg Group AFTER Trump had been elected. People like Rothschild banking agent and Commerce Secretary Wilber Ross who officially attended in 2017, or adviser Peter Thiel who officially attended in 2018. This was not at all surprising to me. I predicted this would be the likely outcome (along with a Trump presidency) in my article “Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement,” published in September 2016. The point is, simply picking the side of the political right is not enough to protect activists from globalist subversion. By rallying around controlled politicians and bottle-necking our actions the liberty movement makes itself vulnerable and decidedly impotent. So, the question arises — how do we continue to fight against the 4th Generation warfare being levied against us? Part of the solution continues to rest in our own understanding of the enemy. I still hold to the idea that the best way to understand globalism is to study and expose the efforts of a group called the “Fabian Society,” otherwise known as Fabian Socialists. The society was founded in England in 1884 and was an extension of the “Round Table” groups being established by global elitists in the West at the time. The Fabians have been at the forefront of almost every pro-socialist and pro-globalist movement of the past century, and while they do not get as much attention as institutions like the Council on Foreign Relations or even the Bilderberg Group, their open discussions on their own motivations and goals make them a prime source of data on the psychology of our opponents. The Fabian Society has multiple mascots which hint at the nature of globalism. One symbol of the group is an angry turtle with the slogan “When I strike I strike hard,” indicating the slow and deliberate nature of globalism and its methodical spread into every aspect of our daily lives. Another mascot they have used in the past is a wolf dressed up as a sheep, a symbol which I think is self explanatory, but to clarify - a person that appears to be anti-globalist in rhetoric or who is criticized by people like the Fabians may still be a Fabian in disguise. Their relationships with elitists will expose their true nature as a Trojan Horse. I think that the best representation of these people and their thinking resides in their own words, however. Here are some choice quotes from past members: …The Open Conspiracy will appear first, I believe as a conscious organization of intelligent, and in some cases wealthy men, as a movement having distinct social and political aims, confessedly ignoring most of the existing apparatus of political control, or using it only as an incidental implement in the stages, a mere movement of a number of people in a certain direction, who will presently discover, with a sort of a surprise, the common object toward which they are all moving. In all sorts of ways, they will be influencing and controlling the ostensible government.” — H.G. Wells: The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution, 1928. “I also made it quite clear that socialism means equality of income or nothing, and that under Socialism you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you like it or not. If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live you would have to live well.” — George Bernard Shaw, The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism, 1928 “I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing. There are others, which, one must suppose, opponents of birth control would prefer. War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. There would be nothing in this to offend the consciences of the devout or to restrain the ambitions of nationalists. The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of that? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s.” — Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society, 1953 “I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology. … Various results will soon be arrived at: that the influence of home is obstructive… although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generatio will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen … Educational propaganda, with government help, could achieve this result in a generation. There are, however, two powerful forces opposed to such a policy: one is religion; the other is nationalism. … A scientific world society cannot be stable unless there is a world government.” — Bertrand Russell: The Impact of Science on Society, 1953 “And it seems to me perfectly in the cards that there will be within the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing … a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods.” — Aldous Huxley, “The Ultimate Revolution” March 20, 1962 Berkeley Language Center Today, the Fabian Society still exists and operates as a think tank much like any other globalist think tank. Their articles and essays push the latest globalist propaganda from the erasure of national sovereignty to the promotion of gender politics and gender “fluidity.” But what can we draw from these writings and the statements of past members? First, globalists use guerrilla-like tactics to achieve their goals and they often act slowly and quietly over the course of years or decades. The Fabian Society was named after the Roman General Quintus Fabius Maximus who famously used tactics of attrition and delay to defeat his enemies. Liberty activists need to start thinking in terms of the long game, much like a chess player does, in order to grasp the globalist agenda. The events triggered today may have intended effects which are not necessarily obvious to us now unless we consider how they relate to the greater scheme. This is especially true in terms of economics. Globalists stage fiscal bubbles many years in advance, and use economic crisis as a catalyst for social change on a grand scale. Usually this results in ever increasing centralization of wealth and power. However, the shift of financial dominance is subtle to those who do not pay particular attention to the details. A market bubble might take a decade to develop before it is deliberately popped. In the meantime all the fundamentals are screaming that something is very wrong, but the majority of the public remains oblivious until it is too late. Second, control of governments and political leaders is paramount to the success of globalism. The notion that ANY major political leader comes to power without globalist influence is utterly naive. Trump and his swamp creature appointed cabinet are perfect examples of this. Rhetoric is meaningless, and while such leaders may throw their base a bone now and then, in the end their actions only push the ball forward for the globalists. This may even include sabotaging their own presidency to make way for a globalist “solution.” Third, mass psychology is a globalist obsession. All power stems from perception. Figureheads and ideological groups sometimes offer the promise of social advantage to the public without much effort on their part. The temptation of this offer can lead people to hand over their free will in exchange. But not all “progress” is actually advantageous for the masses and misery usually follows such Faustian deals with the elites. Escape is difficult. Therefore, globalists must control the narrative at all costs. The public has to be divided as much as possible in order to keep them distracted from the guiding hand of the cabal itself. And, any group that opposes them directly has to be co-opted or destroyed. The more people focus on globalists and their organizations as the core source of social instability, the more uncomfortable they become. Fourth, most globalist actions today rely on 4th Generation warfare; meaning, few things are exactly as they seem, ever. I suspect the success of liberty activists has forced them into more elaborate forms of theater. Nothing they do is ever simple unless you have studied the motivations and mindset of the globalists, then they become rather predictable, unoriginal and bizarrely robotic in their behavior. They appear brilliant in the execution of their agendas only because they have centuries of experience implementing the same con games over and over. They are sociopathic grifters; they are clever and without remorse, but not geniuses in any sense of the word. For now, educating the general liberty movement and the people around us on these issues remains the best method for throwing a monkey wrench into the globalist machine. Countering their psyops should be our pinnacle task, and falling into the narrative traps they create must be avoided. They have spent a considerable amount of thought and energy trying to co-opt our efforts, and that should give everyone pau
