North Korea’s latest missile test was a flop, officials say

The United States sent a supersonic bomber streaking over ally South Korea in a show of force against the North, officials said.

By Hyung-Jin Kim Associated Press March 22, 2017

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea’s latest missile launch ended in failure on Wednesday as the United States sent a supersonic bomber streaking over ally South Korea in a show of force against the North, officials said. The reported launch failure comes as the North angrily reacts to ongoing annual U.S.-South Korean military drills that it views as an invasion rehearsal. Earlier this month, North Korea fired four ballistic missiles that landed in waters off Japan, triggering strong protests from Seoul and Tokyo. The American military detected what it assessed as a failed North Korean missile launch on Wednesday morning, the U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement. It said the missile ‘‘appears to have exploded within seconds of launch.’’ South Korea’s Defense Ministry said it also believes the launch from the eastern coastal town of Wonsan ended in failure. It said it was analyzing what type of missile was launched. Get Ground Game in your inbox: Daily updates and analysis on national politics from James Pindell. The failure might mean that the missile is a newly developed one the North has not deployed, according to South Korean media. Last year, the country suffered a series of embarrassing failed launches of its new medium-range Musudan missile before it successfully test-fired one. View Story Patterson: N. Korea is Trump’s nuclear Rubik’s Cube North Korea’s history shows that it cannot be trusted. Also Wednesday, a U.S. Air Force B-1B bomber and South Korean fighter jets conducted joint training exercises that displayed ‘‘strong deterrence against North Korean nuclear and missile threats,’’ South Korea’s Defense Ministry said. The U.S. military said the training was held after the bomber staged a similar exercise with Japanese fighter jets. The United States often sends powerful warplanes in times of heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula, which remains in a technical state of war because the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty. About 28,500 U.S. soldiers are deployed in South Korea. North Korea is pushing hard to upgrade its weapons systems to cope with what it calls U.S. hostility. Many weapons experts say the North could have a functioning nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the continental U.S. within a few years. North Korea carried out two nuclear tests last year. American defense officials had said Tuesday that the U.S. military was expecting another North Korean missile launch in the next several days. The officials said the U.S. had increased its surveillance over the North and had detected a North Korean missile launcher being moved, as well as the construction of VIP seating in Wonsan. On Sunday, the North claimed a major breakthrough in its rocket development program, saying it had conducted a ground test of a new type of high-thrust rocket engine. Washington, Seoul and others view the North’s space program as a cover for its banned long-range missile development program.

China threatens American B-1 bomber flying off South Korea: Stand off as Beijing claims US aircraft violated its 'defense zone'

China has accused the US plane of operating in its airspace without permission

Pliots of a Air Force B-1B Lancer bomber were forced to respond to controllers

Chinese Air Traffic officials radioed the bomber flying 70 miles from Jeju Island

The US bomber was in the controversial Chinese Air Defense Identification Zone

American and Japanese officials do not recognize the airspace China claism

By Dailymail.com Reporter Published: 01:54 EDT, 23 March 2017 | Updated: 05:56 EDT, 23 March 2017

Chinese military officials have accused US bombers of flying too close to the country and operating in its airspace during a mission off South Korea. Pilots of the US Air Force B-1B Lancer bomber were forced to respond to Chinese air traffic controllers during a flight about 70 nautical miles southwest of South Korea's Jeju Island. American officials told CNN the pilots told the Chinese controllers they were conducting 'routine operations in international airspace and did not deviate from their flight path'. The network revealed the tense moment was the result of the bombers had actually entered the Chinese Air Defense Identification Zone - a controversial area of sky over the East China Sea. The airspace also covers islands claimed by Japan, and it is not officially recognized by the US. 'Pacific Air Forces ... did not recognize the Chinese Air Defense Identification Zone when it was announced in November of 2013, and does not recognize it today,' US Pacific Air Forces spokesman Major Phil Ventura told CNN.

Massive Cover-Up Alleged To Be Ongoing At Large, West Coast Universities As The Pacific Ocean Food Chain Collapses

- As The 'Gates Of Hell' Are Opening, The Appetites Of Demons Are Being Expressed Through Humans

March 23, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

According to this story from the Center For Biological Diversity, marine fish provide 15% of all animal protein consumed by human beings. Also warning in the first paragraph of their story that the global fisheries industry is collapsing, their story is further confirmation of what ENENews and many other local outlets along the West coast are publishing, the deep Pacific ocean is dead and broken, devoid of life over large portions. The February of 2017 story from Armstrong Economics asked "Has The Extinction Cycle Also Turned Against Us?" within which a claim is made that a massive coverup is ongoing about the true health of the Pacific Ocean with threats being made against researchers to prevent them from publishing their true findings. "The penalties for violating these new rules are severe: loss of tenure, civil lawsuits for violation of contract, and potentially employment termination." What might researchers have learned that requires such a cover-up and why should the public be concerned about a cover-up of the collapse of the Pacific Ocean food chain? The stories coming to us from that region largely have one thing in common - the mass die-off's happening now to life around the Pacific Ocean are all largely due to the creatures starving to death. Heartbreaking story after story warn of malnourished and diseased fish, birds and mammals. Where is their food this recent ENENews story asks? Where did 100's of millions of salmon go another ENENews story asks? This stunning claim was also recently made: "All forms of ocean life dying in stunning numbers across Pacific." That sadly also includes many fish, sea birds and mammals at the 'top of the food chain' in the ocean's, those without any predator's besides man, and 'the top of the food chain' definitely includes us. How many millions of Americans and people throughout the world might lose their lives due to what is now happening in the Pacific Ocean? If indeed the mass deaths happening there now are due to radiation, we should remember this fact: With each succeeding step in the food chain, radioactive particles are accumulated in predatory species. Bioaccumulation is the process by which harmful contaminants accumulate in organisms at the top of the food chain. Top predators, such as Pacific Bluefin Tuna, are at risk because they consume numerous, small organisms, along with the radioactive particles that the prey have inside their bodies. As tuna eat contaminated prey, the radiation increases in its tissues exponentially. Dating as far back as to this May 29, 2012 story from BBC we learned that Bluefin tuna caught off of the coast of California had tested positive for radiation within their bodies. Can the Pacific Ocean withstand another 50 million tons of radioactive waste poured into it with huge parts of it already showing massive signs of death and destruction? Each day we're getting more and more signs and indications that we're living in truly perilous and Biblical times whether or not the mainstream media wants to report upon them and as Steve Quayle along with Pastor Rick Wiles talk about in the first video below, from cannibalism going mainstream to 'all hell breaking loose on Earth', we're coming in to a time of God's promises being fullfilled as we watch the words of Hosea 4:3 coming true before our very eyes. Quayle warns us we're now watching the appetites of demons being expressed through humans. We shouldn't be surprised this is all unfolding - we've long been warned. As recently as June of 2016 it was reported a government think tank and FEMA contractor predicted a 395% spike in food prices which would cause social unrest as heard in the 2nd video below. Food has long been used as a weapon. In the 3rd video below from CNN back in October 2015 they reported the oceans food chain could collapse. Was that just 'fake news'? In the final video below we see an 'end times report' that looks at all of the 'mass animal death events' in 2017 alone. Much more below but first, from the Armstrong Economics story: I have just returned from visiting my friend, who is a senior cetacean biologist at one of the large west coast universities. While there, he described an amazing situation to me that has alarmed me greatly. He said that research at his university has conclusively identified the complete or almost complete collapse of several dozen food chains within the Pacific Ocean, all within the last 36 months or so. Further, in “unauthorized” exchanges with the relevant departments in other coast universities, he learned that the numbers involved may well be more like hundreds of chain collapses in the same timeframe as opposed to dozens. Finally, in talking with authoritative figures in Vancouver, they apparently believe that the figure is likely closer to 1000. My friend also explained that equally alarming is the fact that all these research departments are finding within the genres of sea life they have physically examined within the same timeframe “huge numbers of general body mutations, as well as skin disorders” which all cannot yet be accounted for in terms of causation. As bad as all of this sounds, here is the real rub. Regarding these findings about food chain collapses, mutations, and injuries, my friend’s university has instituted a policy that forbids them from publishing their findings, from discussing their findings (on this subject) publicly or in private with other researchers outside their own campus, or finally from taking “unauthorized” radiation readings as part of their research. As our society turns away from God and falls more and more deeply into spiritual decay, we shouldn't be surprised that Hollywood continually pushes 'hunger game' and 'cannibalism' movie themes at the same time as many of our sources of food are being systematically destroyed. As many paying attention know, the 'cannibalism' theme we're watching play out also carries over to politics as Quayle mentions in the 1st video below, and in the 7+-year-old story outlined below we get proof that John Podesta appears to enjoy pushing cannibalism as far as he can get away with. In this story dated June 1st of 2009, Politico asked DC's 'A-listers' where they go on vacation. The first full year of Barack Obama's presidency, they reported DC politicos were getting ready for August getaways and while Lynn Cheney proclaimed she'd be spending her summer at her home in Jackson, Wyoming, working on her autobiography of James Madison, John Podesta claimed he'd be in California doing conference calls in the most unusual way. Is there any particular reason his response then (seen in the screenshot and republished below) didn't raise any eyebrows? As we hear in this video, all of this push by Hollywood, politics and the mainstream towards what society has long-called a 'final taboo' is all coming at a time when the fabric of our society is being ripped apart all around us. The story over at the Church of Euthanasia is called "Butchering The Human Carcass For Human Consumption". A 'step-by-step guide' on how to break down the human body from 'full figure into serviceable choice cuts of meat', we see in their website another very real sign of our world's descent into madness, a world where life no longer means anything to the controlling few who hope to spend their lives eternally via transhumanism as men are changed into monsters. In closing, also discussed in the 1st video is Quayle's very interesting interpretation of Numbers 13:32-33 which we've republished below. As Pastor Wiles mentions, do these verses from Numbers refer to 'giants' and 'cannibalism'? So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, "The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. "There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight."

The Communist Global Governance Takeover; China Set to Take the Leadership Role of the New Global Human Order By Nate Brown - 03/20/2017

The hidden Chinese hand within the United Nations is finally being revealed, as China embarks on a global communist takeover. However, it’s almost like the world stage was discreetly prepared for such. China, once reluctant to contribute troops to the United Nations’ Peacekeeping force has now dispatched more troops than any other permanent member of the UN Security Council. China is ambitious, and they are planning to replace the United States as a Superpower. Over the last several years, China has sought to become a normative power; and with that, the communist nation has made substantial contributions to the United Nations. Just last year, China overtook the USA economically in size, and now they plan to dominate the US politically. Make no mistake; China is a communist nation, not one based on freedom. Controls over religion in China have increased since 2012, seeping into new areas of daily life and triggering growing resistance from believers. At least 100 million people—nearly one-third of estimated believers in China—belong to religious groups facing “high” or “very high” levels of persecution (Protestant Christians, Tibetan Buddhists, Uighur Muslims, and Falun Gong). Despite tightening controls, millions of religious believers defy official restrictions in daily life or engage in some form of direct protest, at times scoring significant victories. The impact of these dynamics reaches beyond the realm of religious policy, deeply affecting China’s overall legal, social, political, and economic environment. Xi Jinping recently stated that China should take the lead in shaping the ‘New World Order,’ rather than their original position of just playing an important role. Interestingly enough, like an agenda, the communist nation is ready to take the lead on the world stage after everything is set in place within the UN. Just last year, the Christian Truther uncovered the United Nations’s ambitions of creating a new global human order one based on communism: “The UN at the seventy-first regular session has aggregated the role of the United Nations in promoting a new global human order into their agenda. In addition to the aforementioned under section A. titled, “Promotion of sustained economic growth and sustainable development in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the General Assembly and recent United Nations conferences,” is also the plan for total Globalization and interdependence. Under the allocation of Agenda items resides the declaration of a formation of a new global human order. Adopted by the General Assembly at its 2nd plenary meeting, on September 16, 2016. The official adoption of such ideology brings to light the global conspiracy against humanity to form a New World Order, as mentioned by world leaders and select governmental officials.” The New Global Human Order adoption by the United Nations, was created by Cheddi Jagan, the fourth president of Guyana, who was a well-known communist. The very ideology of the New Global Human Order is based solely on communism, after the adoption by the UN, all that was left was for a leader aligned with the same ideology to take the stage; enter, China. According to the Chatham House Think Tank, China will play a significant role going forward, and China is seeking to be a global leader on several issues such as Climate Change; Trump was quite right when he tweeted the possibility that Climate Change was a Chinese ploy.

Next-Gen Russian Subs 'Better and Cheaper' Than Newest US Subs

© Photo: press-service of JSC "PO "Sevmas Military & Intelligence 14:00 20.03.2017

Cutting-edge Russian-made nuclear-powered multipurpose attack submarines, known as the Yasen class, cost nearly half as much as the USS Illinois, the latest US-built Virginia class subsurface ship, defense analyst Konstantin Makiyenko told Gazeta.ru, adding that the Russian system is also to a large extent better than its American counterpart. "The Yasen-class nuclear-powered submarine has turned out to be approximately twice as cheap, while exceeding the American submarine in terms of numerous tactical and technical characteristics," Makiyenko, deputy director of the Moscow-based Center for Strategic and Technology Analysis in Moscow, asserted. The Yasen-class sub is estimated to cost approximately US $1.6 billion, while the Virginia class ships are said to cost $2.7 billion per unit. The newspaper also pointed out that the Russian sub has a crew of 64 sailors compared to 120 for the USS Illinois. The Russian nuclear-powered subsurface ship is capable of operating at a maximum depth of 600 meters (1968 feet), while the Illinois can dive to a maximum depth of 450 meters (nearly 1480 feet). Although both can travel at comparable speeds, the Yasen class is reported to be more self-sustainable. Ruslan Pukhov, who heads the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, said that the Yasen-class is also better armed that its American counterpart. The Yasen class can be outfitted with either 32 Oniks supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles or 40 Kalibr-PL anti-ship, anti-submarine and land attack cruise missiles. The Virginia-class subs are currently capable of carrying 12 Tomahawk BGM-109 long-range subsonic cruise missiles, but the Block V boats will have a total of 40 Tomahawks. For its part, "the Yasen class is expected to receive sea-based cruise missiles with a range of 5,500 kilometers, double the range of the latest version of the Tomahawk," Gazeta.ru observed. The Yasen class is expected to become the backbone of the Russian Navy. Severodvinsk, the first Yasen-class sub, entered service in June 2014 and was assigned to Russia's Northern Fleet. The second Yasen-class submarine, dubbed Kazan, will be the first watercraft of the improved Project 885. It is expected to be commissioned in 2018. Four more Yasen-class subs are currently under construction, with the sixth Project 885 watercraft, called Perm, laid down in July 2016. A total of six updated Yasen-class submarines are due to join the Russian Navy by 2020. A total of 13 Virginia class submarines have been in active service with the US Navy, with the USS Illinois commissioned in late October 2016. Long said to be the model defense-acquisition program, the Virginia class is said to have lately been plagued by delays and quality issues. "Problems seem to stem from two primary factors: the move in 2011 to double the submarine construction rate from one to two per year has strained shipyards and the industrial base that supplies parts for the subs; and the Navy has successively reduced contractual building times as shipbuilders grew more experienced with building the submarines, cutting back on earlier, highly-trumpeted opportunities to beat deadlines," Defense News reported.

Scientists Have Invented a Hydrogel Fabric That's 5 Times Stronger Than Steel

But you can still bend and stretch it.

DAVID NIELD 3 MAR 2017

Scientists have created a new hydrogel material reinforced with fibres that they say is up to five times harder to break than carbon steel – but still easy to bend and stretch. That combination of properties means the new fabric could be used as the basis for artificial ligaments and tendons designed to help the body heal – or in manufacturing or fashion where a very tough but elastic material is needed. Researchers from Hokkaido University in Japan developed the fabric, called fibre-reinforced soft composite (or FRSC), by combining hydrogels containing high levels of water with glass fibre fabric. "The material has multiple potential applications because of its reliability, durability and flexibility," says one of the researchers, Jian Ping Gong. Putting two natural materials together to combine their properties is a trick people have been pulling off for a very long time – straw and mud go together to make bricks, and paper and glue gives you papier-mâché. The idea is you end up with a new super-material that combines the best parts of both your source materials. The scientists set out to create a substance that could bear heavy loads and was also very fracture-resistant, taking the best characteristics of hydrogels, but adding extra durability and toughness through the glass fibre fabric. The team says the incredible strength of the composite material comes from dynamic ionic bonds – atoms attracted to each other as electrons get swapped – acting between the fibre and the hydrogels, and within the hydrogels themselves. As the scientists increased the toughness of the hydrogels in the lab, the overall toughness of the composite material went up too. These same principles could also be applied to add toughness to other soft components, such as rubber, the researchers say, building on previous studies of hydrogels carried out at Hokkaido University. The end result is a material that's 25 times tougher than glass fibre fabric; 100 times tougher than hydrogels; and five times as strong as carbon steel, in terms of the energy required to break them. While hydrogels have already been touted as suitable materials for healing wounds and building soft robots, their lack of toughness has previously limited their usefulness – something which the new research could change. "This work provides a good guide toward the design of FRSCs with extraordinary fracture resistance capacity," the researchers write in their paper. The findings are published in Advanced Functional Materials.

U.S. and Russian troops are now in the same Syrian city

By: Andrew deGrandpre, March 13, 2017

WASHINGTON — The U.S. military's "reassurance and deterrence" mission in the Syrian city of Manbij is achieving its goal of preventing key American allies from battling one another, the Pentagon said Monday, but what's already a tense situation could become more complicated with the arrival of Russian troops and continued advances by Turkish-backed rebels. Fewer than 100 elite Army Rangers are in Manbij to keep the peace between Syrian Kurdish forces and those loyal to Turkey, said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. Russian troops are there providing security for humanitarian convoys that have entered the war-torn city, a development he called unsurprising in light of last week's high-level talks between the senior-most military commanders from Russia, Turkey and the U.S. The Americans and Russians have had no close interaction on the ground, Davis said. Moscow, he added, has "kept us abreast of their operations" in Manbij, but the two militaries do not coordinate in Syria. Rather, the Pentagon prefers the term "deconflict." The dynamic in Syria is deeply complex. U.S. troops there are focused on training and assisting local forces fighting the Islamic State. Their presence has swelled to around 1,000 in recent weeks with the addition of a Marine Corps artillery unit focused on the ISIS capital of Raqqa and the Army Rangers sent to Manbij. The Russians are backing Syrian President Bashar al Assad, whose military continues to battle rebel groups seeking to oust him from power. Meanwhile, Turkey's president has called for the liberation of Manbij from the Kurds. Ankara considers the Kurds to be terrorists linked to a militant group responsible for carrying out deadly attacks across the border. Video posted to social media from Manbij shows the Americans' armored vehicles — a mix of Strykers, humvees and mine-resistant tactical trucks — sitting idle or traveling in convoys. "They tend to find a place to park, and look out and watch," Davis said of the Rangers' mission. "They are, for the most part, static, but they do move." The Americans moved in during early March amid signs of violence between Syrian Kurdish militias, who hold the city proper, and Turkey's Syrian proxies, who've made several recent land grabs nearby. "Why we're there, and why we care, is we want to make sure the parties on the ground aren't shooting at each other," Davis said. In that regard, the mission has been "relatively successful in keeping all forces there focused on the common enemy of ISIS," he said. "We have not seen a large amount of sparring or skirmishing." The Rangers' vehicles display brightly colored American flags meant to make their presence abundantly obvious and, it is hoped, ward off direct attacks should hostilities erupt again. Davis declined to discuss what the U.S. military's response would entail if the soldiers come under fire, saying only that they maintain the right to defend themselves. For now, the mission appears to be open-ended. Asked whether the Russians' presence in Manbij means the small American force there can pull out, Davis said there are no immediate plans for that occur. Andrew deGrandpre is Military Times' senior editor and Pentagon bureau chief. On Twitter: @adegrandpre.

Project Dragnet: NSA Documents Prove Surveillance on Donald Trump for Years!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Infowars.com have obtained credible information regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that documents both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years. Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. The NSA electronic surveillance data was created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/12/ dragnet-nsa-spying-survives-2015-review  first  revealed by news reports published in 2005, https://www.theguardian.com/world/interactive/2013/nov/01/snowden-nsa-files-surveillance-revelations-decoded  as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013 – a project that Sheriff Arpaio and his chief CCP investigator Michael Zullo believe has never been shut down. Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have identified dozens of entries at various addresses, including both Trump Tower in New York City and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, under which Trump was under NSA electronic surveillance, as a result of the analysis they conducted on Project Dragnet records of U.S. citizens that were the targets of electronic surveillance from 2004, during President George W. Bush’s term of office, through 2009, the first year of President Obama’s presidency.

Also listed as under NSA surveillance in the period 2004-2010 was Trump’s former wife, Ivanka Trump at House of Ivanka, 10 East 64th Street, New York City. The Project Dragnet database also indicates that the NSA was conducting electronic surveillance on an extensive list of Trump employees in the years 2004-2010 – the only years for which Sheriff Arpaio had data. Here is a partial list of the Trump employees that show up in the Project Dragnet database: Patricia Hernandez, a Manager for the Trump Organization, was under NSA electronic surveillance at Trump Parc, Central Park South, in New York City, at phone 212-586-xxxx, date: 9/16/2008. Mike van der Goes, a Golf Pro at Oceans Trails Golf Course in Palos Verdes, who was promoted to be general manager when Trump bought the course from the bank in 2005 and renamed it Trump National. Mike van der Goes was under surveillance at Trump National, 1 Ocean TRL, Rancho Palos Verdes, California, at phone: 310-265-xxxx, no date. Carolyn Kepcher, a frequent guest on NBC’s television program “The Apprentice,” who was under NSA electronic surveillance when she was General Manager at the Trump National Golf Course in Briarcliff, New York, in Westchester County north of New York City, at 339 Pine Rd., in Briarcliff, New York, at phone 914-944-xxxx, date: 9/7/206. Joe Traci, a Real Estate Property Manager at Trump New World Property Management, at 438 W. 69th Street, New York City, phone 212-769-xxxx, date: 11/12/2008; and at 5 12th Street, New York City, phone: 212-586-xxxx, no date. Roger Socio, a Senior Project Manager, Trump Organization, Trump Tower, 725 Fifth Avenue, New York City, phone: 212-715-xxxx, 2/23/2009. Bill Fichter, Residents Manager, Trump Organization, Trump Palace, 200 E. 69th Street, New York City, phone: 212-879-xxxx, date: 2/24/2009. Florin Bogosel, Trump Park Avenue, 502 Park Avenue, New York City, phone: 212-223-xxxx, no date. Grace Dunne, Trump Park Residence, 3770 Barger Street, Shrub Oak, New York, phone: 914-245-xxxx, date 1/26/2006. Greg Bradley, Vice President, Trump Pavilion for Nursing and Rehabilitation, 9028 Van Wyck, East Richmond Hill, New York, phone: 718-291-xxxx, no date. All these employees appear to have been under NSA phone surveillance, plus various of them under financial surveillance as well. Alex Jones is listed as being under electronic surveillance for phone records, as well as under surveillance for financial records, in 2006. The address listed for Alex Jones in the NSA Project Dragnet database was correct for his residence at that time. So too, Alex Jones confirmed the phone number listed was also correct. Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have validated through law enforcement channels the validity of the name, address, and telephone numbers for the dates that appear in the Project Dragnet database. Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo are prepared to share relevant information with appropriate federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, as well as the Department of Justice, Homeland Security Department, the White House, and members of Congress the Project Dragnet Database in whole, or in part, as it pertains to NSA electronic surveillance of Donald J. Trump and his various employee. Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo also show up in the database, listed as being under both phone and financial surveillance. Zullo explained that he and Arpaio came in contact with the information from Operation Dragnet during an unrelated investigation that began in October 2013 and ended January 2015. A whistleblower by the name of Dennis Montgomery brought forward information that Montgomery alleges was collected while he was employed as a subcontractor for the NSA, working on various surveillance projects. Court documents do verify Montgomery was contracted by the NSA, in part to develop computer breaching software that has been utilized in government mass surveillance operations targeting American citizens without legal justification. While Montgomery’s credibility has been called into question, Zullo maintains that the amount of information provided by Montgomery related to Operation Dragnet was extraordinarily voluminous and that Montgomery had shared information with investigators in 2013 that is only now being revealed by media outlets. More coming…..

Surveillance – What Surveillance?

By Ronnie Herne “Mass surveillance is different. If you’re truly worried an attacks coming from anyone anywhere, you need to spy on everyone everywhere.”

NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY UTAH DATA CENTER Our NSA (National Security Agency) does not have an open and transparent history. The NSA was created in secret in 1952 not by Congress, but by a pen stroke of Harry Truman in a 7-page document that remained classified for years. Even its name was undisclosed. And it stayed hidden until finally, in 1971, NSA analyst Perry Fellwock blew the whistle on NSA and their secret program Echelon with its vast information gathering technology even back then. This led to the Church Committee hearings and some legislation. Obviously, it wasn’t enough….. WHISTLEBLOWERS Over the recent years, 6 additional patriotic whistleblowers have come forward at great sacrifice and risk to themselves. These include Bill Binney, Edward Snowden, Russ Tice, Mark Kline, Thomas Tamm, and Thomas Drake. Click the above link for more information on these men. NSA TODAY Bigger: See Wired article from 2012. Written by James Bamford, this is an article that spares no one’s feelings in laying out what the NSA is, and does. Bigger and Nastier: “The NSA is more interested in the so-called invisible web, also known as the deep web or deepnet – data beyond the reach of the public. This includes password-protected data, US and foreign government communications, and noncommercial file-sharing between trusted peers. ‘The deep web contains government reports, databases, and other sources of information of high value to DOD and the intelligence community according to a 2010 report.’” But don’t feel left out. Oh No! They already have every keystroke, every conversation, every search (Yes, even those), every credit card purchase, every check, every rewards card purchase, every toll gate, every bill, every-everything about you. What do you think is filling up those monstrous computers? The next two blue links are enlightening wakeup articles from Bruce Schneier. Bruce is a go-to guy on internet security, and author of Data and Goliath, about collecting your data and controlling the world. It was a best selling Amazon Book of the Year in 2015. The Utah Data Center came online in 2014, at a cost of somewhere between one and one-half to two billion dollars for one million-plus square feet. Details are not readily shared with the public. 100,000 square feet will be for data storage. The remaining 900,000 square feet will be for administration and “technical support”…… ? What, exactly, does that mean in spook-talk? Data Mining? More secret programs? Mind Control with DOD’s DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency)? It is widely believed that a large emphasis at the Utah Data Center will be put on cracking encryption. You know, breaking the private codes. This will done in conjunction with their Oakridge, Tennessee facility which is developing the world’s fastest supercomputer. Currently encryption done at 128 bits, and 192 bits, and most securely at 256 bits has them at bay. But between the vast storage data in Utah and the lightning speed in Tennessee they think they may be able to crack them. Would it be okay to pray for a large magnetic storm? And they’re building another data center in Fort Meade, Maryland that will be two and one-half times bigger. Just what are they going to do there? Here Are A Handful of the Programs… ECHELON Reportedly developed to monitor Russia and the Eastern Bloc, this one has been around since about 1966. “ECHELON was part of an umbrella program codenamed FROSTING, which was established by the NSA in 1966 to collect and process data from communications satellites. FROSTING had two sub-programs:[25] TRANSIENT: for intercepting Soviet satellite transmissions, and ECHELON: for intercepting Intelsat satellite transmissions.” This 1999 article brought more information to the fore. Echelon’s focus is international intercepts. Shrouded in secrecy, Echelon uses large golf-ball shaped facilities (called radomes short for radar-domes which protect delicate radar equipment from the climate) on earth, plus satellites, to listen in on, intercept, and copy any and all transmissions. Echelon includes sites in England (RAF Menwith Hill), Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and others. The satellites used are said to be stationary. Several years back (+/- the year2000) there was an international flapdoodle as allegations flew that U.S. companies were getting insider information based on intercepted commercial bids, and using them to secure lucrative contracts. This, while believed to be true, was of course denied. CARNIVORE This was an earlier FBI e-mail wiretap system that could be set up by the FBI, in conjunction with your ISP (Internet Service Provider), and operated remotely. It was newer technology in the year 2000, unregulated (if you just forget the Fourth Amendment), and extremely prone to overreach without oversight. Carnivore was eventually renamed DCS1000 but that didn’t improve its murky reputation nor lessen the FBI’s secrecy surrounding the eavesdropping which many believed expanded to intercepting and copying all e-mails. Are we singing Kumbaya yet? SNIFFER This isn’t a program but rather a means of creating surveillance. Routers direct internet traffic noting destinations of the “packets” that go through the router. “Packets” are parts of transmissions that have been reduced into smaller parts to make transmissions flow more efficiently. A sniffer is an intercept monitor that can copy either limited, specific targets, or copy any and every thing that passes by. HEARTBLEED This was created through a flaw discovered in an update to the the SSL program. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. SSL has been supplanted by TLS, Transport Layer Security. However, SSL is still widely used. The SSL is used for security in roughly 2/3 of “secure” Net transactions (think credit card purchases on secured sites). This Heartbleed bug allowed the NSA easier access to our passwords and personal information. The NSA claims it did not know of the Heartbleed bug until 2014. Sources say the NSA knew at least two years earlier. You think? TRAPWIRE TrapWire is a shadowy overreaching program originated by a corporation known as Abraxos, in Virginia. Abraxos is filled with ex-CIA, ex-Intelligence Community spooks. Its purpose is to film people and study patterns of behavior, pre-assign likely guilt, and call it terror assessment. Talk about guilty until proven innocent! In 2005 an Abraxos officer stated that TrapWire could “collect information about people and vehicles that is more accurate than facial recognition, draw patterns, and do threat assessments of areas that may be under observation from terrorists.” TrapWire was exposed in 2012 when a researcher went through a series of hacked e-mails from a company known as Stratfor, aka “Shadow CIA”. It was revealed at that time that literally millions of cameras – public, red light, traffic, bridge, commercial, casino, U.S. and international — were digitally recording people, encrypting the data, and sending it to places unknown for storage using face recognition to note “persons of interest” in “Suspicious Activity Surveillance”. TEMPEST This is a program used by the government to reconstruct information data streams by capturing electromagnetic radiation from computers, printers, handheld devices and converting these radiations into their original transmissions. Unbelievable. Just unbelievable. PRISM Created under George W Bush, PRISM is a secretive tool that co-opts the biggest internet service providers. These include Google, Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo, Skype (now owned by Microsoft), Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, and YouTube. It is believed information can be gleaned from the user equipment via back doors; from the internet backbone; or from the corporate cloud database. This may include general data and/or verbatim copies. Prism slides released by Edward Snowden. How we learned of PRISM. 2013 – 2014 leaks from Edward Snowden. The leaks he provided. XKEYSTROKE This is a very developed query program. You can search, or query, using MAC or Microsoft Office or pdf or phone number or e-mail address or type of document or extensions, and more. This classified link is from 2008 – “The Unofficial XKS User Guide”. TEMPORA This is a British program shared with NSA that collects – for later sorting – internet information carried on fiber optic cables. It went operational in 2011. The cable companies are aware. I believe all the major cables are now tapped. This matters because much of the international cable traffic flows through the US. SPECIAL SOURCE OPERATIONS (of the NSA) This is the division of NSA that collects data from telephone and cable sources. These commercial companies have been coerced (?) into being willing partners with NSA. It is loudly rumored that these companies – your carriers – are well paid for their cooperation. (Are you surprised?) Back in the day that worked just fine; they cooperated and no one was the wiser. Then in 2013 Edward Snowden happened and the big Verizon-NSA link became front page news. Well, it’s still going on and all the major companies are in on it. “SSO also cooperates with private telecommunication providers under the following four programs, which are collectively referred to as Upstream Collection:

– BLARNEY (collection under FISA authority, since 1978)

– FAIRVIEW (cooperation with AT&T, since 1985)

– STORMBREW (cooperation with Verizon, since 2001)

– OAKSTAR (cooperation with 7 other telecoms, since 2004)”

“The government does not need to know more about what we are doing. We need to know more about what the government is doing. We need to turn the cameras on the police and on the government, not the other way around.” Ron Paul June 14, 2013

We’ll continue in PART TWO with everyday surveillance that is all around us. The scope is breathtaking, and growing.

Scare Mongering about Home Schooling

8:00 AM, Mar 09, 2017 | By Charlotte Allen

The Washington Post Magazine's cover story this week is about … the horrors of home-schooling. Specifically, the horrors of "fundamentalist Christian" home-schooling. The cover illustration for the story depicts a sinister windowless log cabin that's supposed to be your typical home school, I guess. Author Lisa Grace Lednicer's main source for the story seems to have been an anti-home-schooling activist named Sarah Hunt, age 36, who was home-schooled herself and lived to tell the tale. Actually, Hunt seems to have done quite well for herself even though home schooling at the behest of her father had consisted "largely of reading and watching videos from the Bob Jones University curriculum." In other words, Hunt was essentially taking college course while still in high school—what was supposed to be wrong with that? She enrolled in the University of New Mexico at age 17 (with the approval of her father—an avionics engineer, by the way—who praised her grades and encouraged her to apply for a Rhodes scholarship), went to law school at Georgetown, one of the nation's top universities, and is now a practicing lawyer. Again, what was supposed to be wrong? Here's what was wrong: She straddled two worlds. There was the one she had grown up in, where she had learned that being a smart and outspoken woman was dangerous. And there was the world in which she was trying to make her way, where she was teased for her ignorance of pop culture touchstones such as "The Smurfs," Madonna and "Mad Max." Gee, no Madonna. So Hunt and a home-schooled friend from Georgetown have recently formed the Center for Home Education Policy where they "do legal work for those who want to attend public school." In other words, use the legal system to prevent parents from raising and educating their children according to their own religious views and moral standards. But remember, this is "fundamentalist Christian" home-schooling we're talking about, and we can't have that. One of the tenets of Hunt's campaign is that home-schooling breeds child abuse. She points out that her center has collected some 84 accounts of child deaths in home-schooling households over an indeterminate period dating back to at least 2011. (If you do the math, though, using figures from the federal government's Children's Bureau, you find out that that's at most less than half the rate at which children die from abuse or neglect in the general U.S. population.) Hunt's and author Lednicer's home-school horror-story poster child—or actually, poster adult at age 18—is Cornelia Hertzler, daughter of "fundamentalist" (that word again!) parents who didn't believe that higher education was part of "'God's plan' for her." At some point the parents had taken away Hertzler's laptop and cell phone, we are told. When Hunt heard all this in a phone interview with Hertzler, she pushed the panic button: Hunt texted a lawyer she knew in Oregon. She had a checklist: The home-schooled woman … would need to collect proof of her identity, because confiscating identification was a common parental tactic. The lawyer had to be prepared. Some parents forcibly restrain their children. If Hertzler, 18, got out, she would need to get to a computer, perhaps at a library, to alert people. She would also need help finding work and housing, and eventually coaching on issues such as the SAT and financial aid, Hunt said. What—were Hertzler's parents Mr. and Mrs. Ariel Castro? Lednicer interviewed Hertzler (and also her father, Roger Hertzler) and wrote this: etc. etc.

Two immigrant high school students who 'raped a fourteen-year-old girl in a bathroom' arrived in America just months ago from El Salvador and Guatemala

Jose Montano, 17, and Henry Sanchez, 18, have been charged with first-degree rape and sexual offense in attack at Rockville High School in Maryland

The two arrived in the US from Central America less than a year ago

Police say Montano and Sanchez first approached a 14-year-old girl in the school hallway and propositioned her, but she refused

Teens then allegedly forced her into a boys' bathroom stall, and raped her

By Dailymail.com Reporter Published: 20:21 EDT, 19 March 2017 | Updated: 03:21 EDT, 20 March 2017

Two teens who were arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl at their high school had recently arrived from Central America, reports suggest. Police in Maryland arrested Jose Montano, 17, and Henry Sanchez, 18, after the young girl told school officials the pair had forced her into a bathroom stall and raped her. Sanchez is now facing deportation proceedings as he had a pending 'alien removal' case against him, according to the Washington Post. He is believed to have entered the US illegally from Guatemala seven months ago. Immigration and Customs Enforcement won't report on Montano's immigration status as he is a minor. Montano arrived El Salvador about eight months ago. Sanchez was held without bond in court on Friday. Montgomery County Assistant States Attorney Rebecca MacVittie called him a 'substantial flight risk'. Montgomery County Police announced the arrests on Friday, saying that the alleged assault happened the day before at Rockville High School. According to investigators, the victim was walking in a school hallway at around 9am when she ran into the two teens. Montano asked the freshman to walk with them and to have sex, but the girl turned them down, according to a press release from the Montgomery County Police Department. The 17-year-old boy repeated his request, then forced her into a boys’ bathroom and into a stall, where he and Sanchez proceeded to rape her. They reportedly took turns holding her down while repeatedly assaulting her and she cried out, and was eventually able to escape the bathroom. The teenage girl later reported the alleged attack to school officials, who immediately called the authorities. Despite their age, both the boys were placed in the ninth grade. Investigators with the Special Victims Division arrested Montano and Sanchez on campus that same day on charges of first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense. Montano is charged as an adult, but police have not released his booking photo. On Friday, Rockville High School sent a letter to parents addressing the incident and the arrests, according to WUSA. 'Ensuring a safe, secure and welcoming learning environment for all of our students is our top priority. Our staff remains vigilant in the monitoring of our school each and every day,' the note said in part. Gboyinde Onijala, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County Public Schools, said that staff at Rockville High will increase monitoring of the hallways and bathrooms. The school has one school resource officer.

First Democrat Official Tied To Elite Pedophile Ring Pleads Guilty (Video)

By Voice of Reason · Monday, March 20th, 2017

While the mainstream media has been trying to keep the public distracted with yet more stories about Russian conspiracies, the crackdown against high level pedophiles has begun. We have previously reported that many pedophiles are far from the image of a stereotypical loser; in fact they are often placed in the highest rungs of society, and are extremely well connected. Case in point – Democrat and former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio Richard Keenan. In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the recent guilty admission by the former mayor of 20 counts of sex crimes, including 8 counts of rape. The victim was 4 years old when the abuse started. President Trump is intensifying his efforts against the embedded pedophile rings, and this is only the beginning. Now that they know the President himself is after them, what desperate tactics will Democrats and the mainstream media resort to in order to keep themselves out of jail? Former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio (D) Richard Keenan has admitted in court to raping a young child, as President Trump’s urgent investigation into the elite pedophile ring that has infiltrated Washington D.C. and politics nationwide continues taking down high-profile perpetrators. Keenan previously blamed the 4-year-old victim for initiating the acts, describing her as a “willing participant“. He is now facing life behind bars. DO NOT MISS: White House Intruder Was Pizzagate Whistleblower Trying to Contact Trump (Video) The Youngstown Vindicator reports that according to court documents, the victim told Keenan’s wife about the sexual abuse that began when she was 4-years-old and lasted for three years. When Keenan’s wife confronted him about the allegations, he responded, “I did it.” The Democrat mayor also confessed to the allegations to his pastor, a social worker and his brother and sister-in-law, according to documents filed by the assistant prosecutor.

Homosexual director of ‘Beauty and Beast’ wants to rip the Bible to pieces

Posted on March 18, 2017 by Dr. Eowyn | 54 Comments

I have published two posts warning about Disney’s new flick, Beauty and the Beast, that:

The Beast is Baphomet, i.e., the devil. Disney inserted homosexual propaganda into the movie by making Gaston’s manservant LeFou homosexual and featuring the studio’s first “exclusively gay scene”. Now we know why. Beauty and the Beast‘s director Bill Condon, 61, born in New York City and raised in an Irish Catholic family, is openly homosexual and has a visceral hatred for Christianity. Pete Baklinski reports for LifeSiteNews, March 17, 2017, that in a 2007 interview with Passport Magazine, Bill Condon said he wishes he could “rip pages out of the Bible” when he stays in hotel rooms. When asked what the first thing he does when he gets into a hotel room, Condon replied: “I wish I could say I’m like [homosexual actor] Ian McKellen and immediately go rip pages out of the Bible, but there don’t seem to be bibles in the hotel rooms I stay in these days.” According to a report by The Charlotte Observer’s Lawrence Toppman, there are two homosexual moments in the film: The first comes when “a young man whirls into the surprised Le Fou’s arms, and they dance happily away together”. Later in the dance, Le Fou “spins across the room and lands on the reclining Gaston’s lap, wrapping Gaston’s arms around him.” Neither scene is found in the original Beauty and the Beast story, nor are they essential or add to the plot. Which makes Disney’s new movie a FAKE Beauty and the Beast! Condon said in a March 1 interview with Attitude: “Le Fou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realising that he has these feelings. And [actor] Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.” So committed and insistent is Disney on the homosexual message in Beauty and the Beast that the studio would rather swallow the loss of box office revenue in Malaysia than cut out the pro-“gay” scenes, as requested by the Malay government. Beauty and the Beast is being boycotted by Christian and Conservative groups: A petition to boycott the film created by LifeSiteNews has been signed by 131,000 people. The petition to Disney states: “Children’s movies are no place for promoting a harmful sexual political agenda, one that offends the deeply held beliefs of countless parents and families. I pledge to boycott both the Beauty and the Beast movie, and other Disney films and products, until such a time as Disney commits itself to protecting, not harming, the innocence of our children.” The American Family Association has 51,000 petition signers saying they “can’t support Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie” because it pushes the “gay agenda on our children. Homosexual behavior is unhealthy and unnatural. It is irresponsible and careless of Disney to promote such an agenda in a movie designed and marketed to children.” Colorado Christian University created a petition to Disney CEO Rober Allen Iger where “Christian Americans” pledge to “not allow our children or grandchildren to be subjected to your radical Left-wing agenda through your latest rendition of Beauty and the Beast. We will not allow you to bully us into going against our Biblically-based beliefs in natural marriage, and we will certainly not let you circumvent us as leaders of our families to force these beliefs on the impressionable young minds of our children.” On March 2, evangelist Franklin Graham wrote his 5.5 million Facebook followers asking them to “say no” to Disney’s remake. “They’re trying to push the LGBT agenda into the hearts and minds of your children—watch out! Disney has the right to make their [shows], it’s a free country. But as Christians we also have the right not to support their company. I hope Christians everywhere will say no to Disney.” Earlier this month Christian owners of an Alabama drive-in theater said they would refuse to show the film because it would “compromise on what the Bible teaches.” Russia slapped a 16+ rating on the film, effectively banning children from seeing it. Alas, the boycotts evidently are in vain. The movie had a record $170 million opening in the U.S. this weekend, earning $350 million worldwide. (Hollywood Reporter)

Blizzard-bound Churchill awaits supply train: OmniTrax says track cleared

Northern Manitoba town's grocery shelves are bare as residents face another blizzard

CBC News 1 Hour Ago

Another winter blizzard is hitting the remote northern Manitoba community of Churchill, where people are already desperate for groceries that have been delayed since the last blizzard two weeks ago. But there could be relief as soon as Monday afternoon, if the train can get all the way through to the town of about 900 residents. OmniTrax, the Denver-based company that owns the rail line that brings supplies into Churchill, cleared the tracks and is trying to get supplies delivered as soon as possible. A train with supplies departed from the northern Manitoba town of Gillam, about 270 kilometres southeast of Churchill, at around noon Monday. "A lot of families are suffering because they have young children and they need milk," said local resident Lana Bilenduke. No bread or vegetables are for sale at the local store and meat is scarce, she said. "Everyone's in a crisis until we get our groceries in."

But as of Monday the crews had accomplished that goal. Margulis also disputed Hutchins's assertion OmniTrax has not communicated properly with the town. Margulis said the company had sent notices to communities along the route that were affected by the line's temporary closure.

Wildfire near downtown Boulder forces more than a thousand to evacuate the Colorado city

Wildfire consuming 62 acres in Sunshine Canyon near Boulder started early on Sunday morning

Authorities have ordered more than 1,000 to evacuate; another 2,200 told to be ready to move out

No property damage or injuries yet, but strong wind threatens to fan the flames toward town

By Associated Press and Keith Griffith For Dailymail.com Published: 10:49 EDT, 19 March 2017 | Updated: 19:40 EDT, 19 March 2017

A wildfire burning in the mountains just outside downtown Boulder, Colorado has forced more than a thousand residents to evacuate. The fire ignited dead trees that exploded into black plumes of smoke on Sunday. Wind pushed the flames in the wooded area a couple of miles west of Pearl Street, the shopping and dining heart of the university city's downtown. The fire was only about 62 acres and hadn't caused any injuries or damaged structures by noon on Sunday, but strong gusts and warm and dry weather threatened to fan the flames. Authorities made more than 1,000 calls to residents ordering them to evacuate and warned an additional 2,200 to get ready to leave if conditions worsened, said Gabi Boerkircher of the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. It wasn't clear exactly how many houses or residents were evacuated because the calls could have gone to multiple people living in the same home and likely didn't include children. There were no reports of injuries or damage to homes, emergency officials said. At least eight aircraft were making drops to battle the flames, and a community center has opened as an evacuation shelter. The fire was at 20 per cent containment by noon Sunday, according to the Boulder OEM. Officials were not sure how the fire started. It was first reported around 1.40am Sunday. Seth Frankel, who has been warned that he and his family may need to evacuate, said he had packed up 'generations of things' that can't be replaced and was ready to go if the air quality got worse. He said smoke is pouring toward neighborhoods and many dead trees are combusting and sending black smoke into the air less than a half-mile from his home. But he and his wife, a Boulder native, and three daughters have dealt with fires and floods before. 'It's always alarming and always on your mind, but it's not an uncommon sensation around here,' said Frankel, who has lived in Boulder for 20 years. He got word about the fire early Sunday from a neighbor who received a warning call and has been outside with neighbors watching the flames and smoke. But he let his daughters, 9, 11 and 13, get some more sleep. 'It's still alarming, but there's no panic,' Frankel said.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife point to preliminary data from the Sacramento River that indicates salmon runs have also dropped to record low levels. According to Dan Bacher’s reporting, last year’s salmon run on the Klamath River was a 38-year low… Gary Reedy, SYRCL’s consulting salmon expert reports that “A new crash for the Central Valley Chinook salmon is not unexpected.”… The Oregonian, Mar 15, 2017: Worst Klamath chinook run on record forecast — The worst run forecast on record for the Klamath River’s chinook salmon could close all salmon fishing along most of the Oregon Coast this summer… Mendocino Beacon, Mar 16, 2017: Returns of spawning Klamath River fall Chinook are projected to be the lowest on record in 2017… “The salmon runs this year will present a challenge for ocean fishermen and managers throughout the West Coast,” said Executive Director Chuck Tracy… “the low forecast for Klamath River fall Chinook is unprecedented”… “This year will be an exceptionally difficult year for ocean salmon fisheries, especially in Oregon and California”… said Council Chair Herb Pollard. Juneau Empire, Mar 6, 2017: Spring king fishing canceled by emergency order… the Juneau area will be closed for king salmon fishing… biologists expect a second-straight year of record-low king salmon returns on the Taku River. “We’ve been in a period of low productivity, not just on the Taku, but on several rivers up and down the coast,” Juneau Area Management Biologist Daniel Teske said… Nobody knows exactly why Southeast king salmon are struggling, but biologists do know where the fish are being affected: in the ocean… The increased die-off must be happening in a marine environment, Teske said, otherwise numbers on the four rivers wouldn’t fall at the same time… Undercurrent News, Feb 1 , 2017: Japanese salmon fisheries in historic collapse — Landings in Hokkaido, Japan are the lowest in nearly three decades, reports the blog RussGeorge.net.

The Global Famine Begins: UN Announces That The Worst Food Crisis Since World War II Is Happening Right Now

Published: March 19, 2017

We always knew that this would start happening. Earlier this month, I wrote about the severe economic problems that are plaguing South America, but up to this point I have neglected to discuss the horrific famines that are breaking out all over Africa. Right now there is a desperate need for food in South Sudan, Somalia, northeast Nigeria, Eritrea and Kenya. And Yemen, even though it is not technically part of Africa, is being affected by many of the same factors that are crippling nations all over eastern Africa. The United Nations says that more than 20 million people could die from starvation and disease if nothing is done. When I write about economic collapse, this is the kind of thing that I am talking about, and we are starting to see alarming conditions spread across the globe. Many believe that we could never possibly face this kind of food crisis in the western world, but unfortunately wishful thinking will only get you so far. The United Nations was formed in 1945, and the UN has just announced that what we are facing this year is “the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the UN”. The following comes from a CNN article entitled “20 million at risk of starvation in world’s largest crisis since 1945, UN says“… “We stand at a critical point in history. Already at the beginning of the year we are facing the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the UN,” UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien said Friday. “Now, more than 20 million people across four countries face starvation and famine. Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death. Many more will suffer and die from disease.” It would be hard to overstate the level of human suffering that we are witnessing in many parts of Africa at this moment. In Somalia, the UN estimates that more than 6 million people are in desperate need of food aid… As Somalia inches closer to a calamitous famine, the prospect of utter devastation and colossal loss of human life is once again becoming an imminent reality. The humanitarian situation in Somalia is deteriorating by the day with up to 6.2 million people in need of urgent aid. People across Somalia have been forced to walk hundreds of miles in search of food, water and shelter- with women and children disproportionately affected. Over 300,000 children under the age of five are severely malnourished, with over 200,000 more children at risk of acute malnutrition. In South Sudan, close to half the population is in dire need of assistance, and things have gotten so bad there that people will literally eat grass if they can find it… Across South Sudan more than one million children are believed to be acutely malnourished and UNICEF have said that if urgent aid does not reach them, many of them will die. “There is no food, we eat anything we can find,” one South Sudanese mother told ITV. “We will find grass, we will eat it. That’s just the way it us for us now.” Over in Yemen, there are about seven million people in need of food help, and authorities are warning that if nothing is done “millions of children” could starve to death… “The numbers affected are absolutely extraordinary,” said Mark Kaye, Save the Children’s Yemen spokesperson. “We keep on talking about a country that’s on the brink of famine, but for me these numbers highlight that we’re at the point of no return. If things are not done now we are going to be looking back on this and millions of children will have starved to death, and we’ll all have been aware of this for some time. That will shame us as an international community for years to come. Eritrea was not specifically included in the recent UN alert, but it should have been. Much of the country has been hit by a crippling drought, and approximately half of all children in Eritrea are stunted… But we cannot understand why Eritrea is not included in the appeal. Unicef has confirmed what we know from our friends and families inside the country. In a report in January, the agency said that the El Niño drought has hit half of all Eritrea’s regions. Acute malnutrition is widespread. As Unicef put it: “Malnutrition rates already exceeded emergency levels, with 22,700 children under five projected to suffer from severe acute malnutrition in 2017 … Half of all children in Eritrea are stunted, and as a result, these children are even more vulnerable to malnutrition and disease outbreaks.” We have been warned that there would be famines in diverse places in these times. But here in the western world we tend to be lulled into a false sense of security by our comfortable lives, not realizing that the massively inflated standard of living that we have been enjoying has been fueled by the largest mountain of debt in the history of the planet. In Kenya, a national emergency has been declared due to drought and famine. For those of you that are parents, what would you do if your children were crying out for food but you didn’t have anything to give them? The following story from Kenya is beyond heartbreaking… Emmanuel Ayapar is three years old and can no longer walk. The flesh on his legs, which dangle from his mother’s hip as she carries him around, is wasting away. He seems listless and sad, tongue flicking repeatedly in and out of his mouth. ‘We do not have enough food,’ said Veronica, his 28-year-old mother. ‘We eat only once a day.’ The little boy is suffering from severe malnutrition and is at risk of starving to death. He weighs just 15lb – half the typical weight for a boy of his age. I don’t even know what to say after that. In the western world we can be so incredibly self-absorbed that we don’t even realize that children are literally starving to death on the other side of the planet. Hopefully those of us that live in “wealthy” western countries will step up to the plate and aid those in need, and hopefully this crisis will also help us to understand that we need to prepare for the day when things get difficult in our own nations too.

Disastrous National Security Breach in U.S. Congress

By Douglas J. Hagmann - March 19, 2017

Unless you’re plugged in to the independent media, there’s a good chance that you’ve not yet heard of one of the largest and arguably most important cases of government infiltration in recent history. On February 2, 2017, three Pakistani brothers with top access to the computer systems inside the U.S. House of Representatives containing some of the nation’s most sensitive information were removed from their positions by U.S. Capitol Police. The three brothers who are the target of a criminal probe, deliberately understated as a “procurement scam” include Imran Awan, Abid Awan and Jamal Moiz Awan, each who were the “shared employees” of at least 31 Democratic Congressional Representatives. But the case itself and potential damage is much, much worse than is being reported, if it’s being reported at all. While the corporate media is obviously more intent to prove some nebulous cyber connection between President Donald Trump and the Russians, they have yet to pay even the most basic lip service to this case of apparent espionage that has taken place at the highest levels of our government. The Amal brothers had complete and direct access to information of three extremely sensitive committees: The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Homeland Security Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The access to the information they had, along with their known or suspected affiliations to such groups as Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood, has “shaken” government insiders with knowledge about the case. Imran Awan has been identified as the group’s leader, initially providing computer services for Florida Democrat and former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Recall that it was Schultz’s email which was “hacked” during the 2016 election when she served as DNC Chairman. Among the House members who presently employed the services of ring leader Imran Awan were Andre Carson, the second Muslim member of the House of Representatives, as did Congresswoman Jackie Speier. On March 22, 2016, it was Jackie Speier was one of eight House members who asked for additional funding so that the Awan clan could secure Top Secret/SCI level clearance. Additionally, it was revealed that these employees were paid more than three times the salary of a “normal” IT worker, grossing upwards of $4 million dollars combined during their tenure as IT professionals. While the average government IT professional earns about $55,000 per year, Imran Awan was being paid $165,130, Abid Awan grossed $164,980 per annum, and Jamal Awan $157,577 according to government records. Further investigation, however, found that the three brothers were merely the “core” infiltrators. Also on the government payroll were Hina R. Alvi, wife of Imran Awan, who was paid $168,300 per year and Natalia Sova, wife of Abid Awan, who was paid a meager $34,854. And, it gets worse. Investigators determined that not only did the Awan clan have access to highly sensitive information, they set up an external server and copied information from Congressional computers to their off-site server, reportedly stealing documents, records, emails and other sensitive and classified information to the server under their sole control. Much More than a “Procurement Scam” Notably in 2009, the Awan brothers opened a car dealership in Virginia identified as Cars International A, LLC, interestingly referred to as “CIA” in court documents. Information contained in several well-researched and comprehensive investigative reports by The Daily Caller, The Gateway Pundit and George Webb, a guest on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report details the mysterious car dealership and notes that the Awan brothers were also the recipient of a $100,000 “loan” made by Iraqi politician and disgraced “doctor” Ali al-Attar, who has reportedly fled to Iraq and has ties to various Muslim groups, including Hezbollah. Ali al-Attar was born in Baghdad to Iranian parents. He was indicted by the U.S. government in 2012 for tax fraud that reportedly involved diverting a half-million dollars from his medical offices into his personal account. Such actions appeared to be international in scope as it is suspected but not proven that he also diverted money to the accounts of others in the Middle East. According to a source in contact with this writer, the potential damage to our national security is “incalculable.” This source is also questioning why an investigation of this magnitude has not been handed off to the FBI for investigation, rather than keeping it assigned to the Capitol Police. “That itself should raise a lot of flags,” stated this source who declined to be named for this report. At this point, the weight of evidence strongly suggests that the United States House of Representatives computer systems, including and especially the documents and emails to and from top Representatives on the most sensitive committees including but not limited to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Homeland Security Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee has been compromised from within. Consider the above in the context of the raid in Yemen on January 29, 2017 when a U.S. Navy Seal was killed. Just four days later, the Awan brothers were banned from the premises of the U.S. Capitol. A coincidence? I think not. According to my DC source, it was not a coincidence. More investigative results about the level of Muslim infiltration into the most sensitive areas of our nation’s infrastructure will be published in the coming days. They are working with the secular Progressive Socialists to bring down not merely President Donald Trump, but our nation. It will shock even the most hardened among us. Stay tuned.

Supreme Court judge: Marriage, religious liberty under attack

Thu Mar 16, 2017 - 2:44 pm EST

MADISON, N.J., March 16, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The United States’ commitment to religious liberty is being tested and hostility toward traditional moral beliefs is on the rise, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito told a group of Catholic lawyers Wednesday night. Justice Alito repeated the words he had written in his own dissent in the Obergefell case legalizing homosexual “marriage,” telling the group that he suspected the decision would be used to “vilify those who disagree and treat them as bigots.” "We are seeing this is coming to pass," Alito said. He then referenced a famed Bob Dylan song lyric, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows." "A wind is picking up that is hostile to those with traditional moral beliefs," Alito said. He told the audience that while religious freedom has been recognized in Congress and in the courts, attitudes are not so quick to change. The Supreme Court Justice described how a Democratic lawmaker opposed his 2005 nomination because Alito would make "too many Catholics on the court." Alito also called on Americans to raise awareness of threats to religious freedom in the wake of Supreme Court rulings such as the Hobby Lobby case, where the company’s Christian owners objected to being forced to provide contraception in violation of their religious beliefs. "We are likely to see pitched battles in courts and Congress, state legislatures and town halls," he said. "But the most important fight is for the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans. It is up to all of us to evangelize our fellow Americans about the issue of religious freedom." Alito’s appearance was sponsored by Advocati Christi — or Advocates of Christ. The initiative is part of the Diocese of Paterson, New Jersey’s Catholic Center for Evangelization. It offers outreach to Catholic lawyers and judges to “deepen their practice of the profession of faith, and integrate it into their daily life and practice.” Alito spoke for about 45 minutes, according to an AP report. He talked about the hostility faced by Catholics in the U.S. in previous centuries and his joy while staying up overnight as a Catholic youth in 1960 to witness John F. Kennedy’s election as the first Roman Catholic president. "I felt it had lifted me up from the status of second-class American," Alito recalled. While dissenting from the majority in the Obergefell decision in 2015, Justice Alito was alone in saying that marriage existed for the sake of procreation and child-rearing. He wrote that the majority opinion was based on ideas of romantic love. He had also expressed a concern shared by the other conservative dissenting justices that the Obergefell decision supplants the democratic process with the views of five unelected justices. “If a bare majority of justices can invent a new right and impose that right on the rest of the country, the only real limit on what future majorities will be able to do is their own sense of what those with political power and cultural influence are willing to tolerate,” Alito had written in his dissent. “All Americans, whatever their thinking on that issue,” he concluded, “should worry about what the majority’s claim of power portends.” Alito was a U.S. Attorney in New Jersey and based in Newark while a member of the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. He was nominated to the High Court by President George W. Bush and has served since 2006.

Israel said to strike Syria for second time in 24 hours, amid threats from Damascus

Unconfirmed reports indicate jets hit Hezbollah weapons convoy, military targets, hours after drone strike in Syrian Golan; Syria UN envoy says retaliatory missile launches during Friday raid a ‘game-changer’

By Times of Israel staff March 20, 2017, 2:25 am

Israel is said to have struck Syria overnight Sunday-Monday, the second strike in 24 hours and third in three days as tensions escalated between the two countries over the weekend.

Syria media reported early Monday that Israeli jets took out a number of targets near the Lebanon-Syria border including a Hezbollah weapons convoy and Syrian military sites. The reports have not been confirmed. Earlier Sunday, an Israeli drone strike reportedly killed a member of a Syrian pro-regime militia, an attack that came two days after Israeli jets, in an early Friday morning operation, hit an arms transfer meant for Hezbollah near Palmyra, with Syrian air defenses firing missiles at the planes. One missile was intercepted by Israel’s Arrow missile defense battery, military officials said, in the first reported use of the advanced system. It was the most serious incident between the two countries since the Syrian civil war began six years ago. On Sunday evening, Syria’s ambassador to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari said Syria’s response to Friday’s strike was a “game-changer.” Speaking on Syrian state TV, Jaafari said the military’s response was “appropriate and in line with Israel’s terrorist operation,” and that Israel “will now think a million times [before striking again],” according to a translation cited in Ynet. “Syria’s forceful response to the Israeli attacks changed the rules of the game,” he said. His comments came hours after Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman threatened to destroy Syrian air defense systems for targeting the Israeli aircraft during the bombing run Friday. “The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation,” Liberman said on Israel Radio. Israeli officials have warned of the possibility Hezbollah and Iran could attempt to set up a base to attack Israel near the border with the Israeli Golan Heights. Last week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Moscow, where he asked the Kremlin to make sure Iran does not gain a foothold in the area. Israel has also repeatedly vowed to prevent Hezbollah from acquiring any advanced weaponry and several strikes on such convoys over the years since the Syrian civil war began in 2011 have been attributed to Israel. Jerusalem has also claimed several of the raids, including Friday’s. “Each time we discover arms transfers from Syria to Lebanon we will act to stop them. On this there will be no compromise,” Liberman said Sunday. “The Syrians must understand that they are held responsible for these arms transfers to Hezbollah and that if they continue to allow them then we will do what we have to do.” Earlier Sunday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that Israeli aircraft struck a truck driving near the town of Khan Arnabeh in the Quneitra province, on the road to Damascus. The National Defense Force, a pro-regime militia set up in 2012, claimed the man killed was from among its ranks, naming him as Yasser Hussien Assayed.

Senator John McCain went on a long winded rant from the Senate floor, accusing Rand Paul of working for Vladimir Putin simply because he objected to Montenegro’s bid to be a part of NATO. Rand Paul responded by saying McCain is unhinged, past his prime and makes a strong case for term limits. Ouch! MSNBC: “What’s your reaction to Senator McCain’s characterization of your objection?” Rand Paul: “Well you know I think he makes a really really strong case, you know for term limits. Umm I think maybe he’s uh past his prime. I think maybe he’s gotten a little bit unhinged. I do think that when we talk about NATO there can be a rational discussion about the pros and cons of expanding it.” Rand Paul is correct. There needs to be a rational discussion about NATO without corrupt, unhinged career politicians tying everything to Russian conspiracies. Why does everything all of a sudden have to be about Russia?

Lutheran, Episcopal and United Church of Christ Clergy: “We Stand With Planned Parenthood” Abortion Biz

National Micaiah Bilger Mar 16, 2017 | 3:35PM Des Moines, Iowa

A group of female clergy from Iowa wrote a letter this week to publicly state their support of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. The letter, published in the Des Moines Register on Wednesday, included signatures from seven women pastors from the United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Episcopal Church, Unitarian Universalist Association, Christian Church (Disciple of Christ) and Unity Church. A note included with the letter said the pastors were not speaking on behalf of their denominations or congregations. The pastors praised Planned Parenthood’s work and blasted a state bill that would defund the abortion group and redirect tax dollars to community health centers that don’t provide abortions.As clergy and as women, we oppose any action by the Iowa Legislature to restrict a woman’s ability to make her own health care and reproductive decisions or to access health care services,” they wrote. “Additionally, we support Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the excellent care it provides for any woman who chooses its health care services.” In February, the Iowa Senate passed Senate File 2 to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups in the state. The legislation would direct taxpayer funding to federally qualified health centers that provide more comprehensive health care but not abortions. The bill currently is being considered in the state House. In their letter, the pastors described the bill as “dangerous” and “extreme” legislation that “threatens access to basic health care for low-income women.” They also claimed that legislators’ opposition to abortion is purely religious. They wrote: All arguments against a woman’s reproductive choices are based in morality and religious beliefs, using those religious beliefs to change the law and infringe upon the rights of women. Through our faiths, we are joining together to balance those arguments and to assure legislators that the religious community does not speak with one voice. We are deeply committed to social justice, which includes caring for the poor and oppressed. Defunding and shutting down Planned Parenthood would hurt those struggling to get by and those who already face many barriers in accessing health care. As clergy and as women, we know that women are well equipped to make their own health care decisions. We also believe that this bill is a matter of legislating inequality and will deny low-income women access to quality family planning services. SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately Their letter makes a number of assumptions that are not true, one being that the pro-life position is entirely a religious one. While Christians make up a large part of the movement, there also are quite a few secular pro-lifers. Data also does not back up their claim that women will lose access to health care if Planned Parenthood is defunded. As previously reported, supporters of Senate File 2 contend that Iowa “women will have access to 221 clinics statewide that will expand coverage to rural women who must now make long drives to urban areas for family planning services.” Women can find much more comprehensive health care at community health clinics. The non-abortion services that Planned Parenthood provides are very limited. For example, Planned Parenthoods do not provide mammograms and very few provide prenatal care; and those that provide ultrasounds appear to do so only for abortion purposes. Data from the abortion group’s own reports show a growing focus on abortions and a continuous decrease in its non-abortion services. From 2009 to 2014, “cancer screenings” dropped from 1,830,811 to just 682,208. “Breast exams/breast care” fell by more than half, from 830,312 in 2009 to 363,803 in 2014 and Pap smear tests dropped nearly two-thirds, from 904,820 to 271,539. In that same time period, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers remained steady, hovering around 320,000 per year. Iowa is one of a number of states that are moving to defund the abortion group. Last week, Republicans in U.S. Congress released the American Health Care Act. Their plan to repeal Obamacare includes provisions that would revoke funding for Planned Parenthood. A provision in the bill prohibits states from using “direct spending” on “prohibited entities” with federal funds allocated from the legislation; and those entities include any entity that “provides for abortions.” That means the nation’s biggest abortion corporation — Planned Parenthood. President Donald Trump recently offered Planned Parenthood a deal that would have allowed it to keep receiving tax money if it stopped doing abortions. Planned Parenthood refused. http://www.lifenews.com/2017/03/16/lutheran-episcopal-and-united-church-of-christ-clergy-we-stand-with-planned-parenthood-abortion-biz/

Army to get laser that can zap drones

By Aaron Gregg March 16

Lockheed Martin said Thursday it has finished a 60-kilowatt laser system for the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command and is preparing to hand it over to the Army for further testing. In initial tests, the company achieved 58 kilowatts of power but expects its laser to reach its full potential by the time of its delivery in the next few months. The laser is what the company calls a “combined fiber” laser beam, bringing together individual lasers to form a single, stronger beam. Lockheed has been testing it at an installation in Bothell, Wash., and plans to ship it to an Army installation in Huntsville, Ala., in the next few months. “We’re really at the dawn of an era of the utility of laser weapons,” said Robert Afzal, senior fellow for laser and sensor systems at Lockheed Martin. The Army’s specialized military vehicles “can now carry something which is small enough and powerful enough for what we believe will be militarily useful.” Multiple military agencies and defense companies have been working on laser weapon capabilities. In 2014, Boeing published a video of its 10-kilowatt laser destroying a mortar in flight. Proponents say lasers could be cheaper than traditional munitions systems because they don’t require expensive projectiles and they don’t need to be reloaded. That could make the system useful in taking down airborne adversaries, such as off-the-shelf drones. The idea of an off-the-shelf drone fleet commanded by a non-state entity presents new challenges for a global military establishment that has focused for centuries on war with other governments. For example, Gen. David Perkins said this week that a U.S. ally had taken down an adversary’s off-the-shelf quad-copter — which can be purchased online for a few hundred dollars — with a multimillion-dollar Patriot missile. Mark Gunzinger, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, said: “That’s $3 million to shoot down a three-or-four-hundred-dollar drone. . . . What if you could do that with a beam of light that costs a buck?” More powerful projectiles such as Hellfire missiles are also more likely to cause collateral damage, making them less practical in certain situations. Proponents say laser weaponry could be more precise and ultimately more effective against small airborne targets. Lasers “hit targets at the speed of light, they cost almost nothing per shot, and they have an almost unlimited number of times they can be used,” said Loren Thompson, chief operating officer of the nonprofit Lexington Institute, which receives funding from defense firms including Lockheed Martin and Boeing. “A medium-sized laser should be able to take out any number of drones in a very short period of time because they are so fragile.” The Navy has already deployed a ship-based laser that it says is ready for combat use, but the Army faces a unique set of challenges. To protect American soldiers from low-budget drone fleets, the Army would need a highly mobile laser that can sit on the back of a truck. The agency would have to find a way to carry enough battery power to fire continually without the truck overheating. Such a large power source isn’t a problem if it’s stationary on a ship or military installation, but moving it around the battlefield might be difficult. With the 60-kilowatt laser announced this morning, Lockheed says that it has reached that goal and that the weaponry is ready to be deployed. “In terms of the maturity of this technology to be field-able on an Army vehicle, this technology is ready for that,” Afzal said. The company said its initial testing showed the laser to be near physical limits for accuracy and reasonably energy-efficient, directing 43 percent of electricity used to power it directly into the laser itself, helping it deal with the mobility problem. The system is designed to be a low-weight solution that sits on a ground-based vehicle called a Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT), essentially a truck designed for carrying large artillery. The Army already has laser weapons it is testing, but Lockheed’s laser may have advantages in power and portability. The 60-killowatt laser has its origins in the Defense Department’s Robust electric laser initiative, which started in 2010 and ended when a 15-kilowatt laser was developed. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, has its own initiative to create a turret-based laser that can fire downward from an aircraft.

Japan holds first-ever evacuation drill simulating North Korean missile strike into waters nearby

Kyodo

AKITA – Amid a growing missile threat from North Korea, the northern city of Oga, Akita Prefecture, held Japan’s first-ever evacuation drill for local residents, gaming out a scenario in which Pyongyang lobs a ballistic missile into the waters nearby. The drill came as the North continues to make advances in its missile and nuclear weapons programs, having carried out a number of launches over the past year, with its latest test-firing earlier this month. Conducted on the premise of a ballistic missile falling into Japanese waters off Akita, the drill was aimed at promptly relaying information while facilitating the swift and safe evacuation of residents. Hosted by the prefectural and city governments, the drill saw local officials direct 110 residents and other participants in a district of Oga, which faces the sea, to evacuate to a public hall and elementary school. The central government relayed emergency information to the local municipalities partly through the J-Alert emergency advisory service, which is also employed in the event of disasters. The city then used its wireless system to broadcast the information it received via loudspeakers and inform residents, who had registered ahead of time for such information, through their smartphones and other gadgets. While the central government has been carrying out drills to relay news alerts to municipalities using the J-Alert system, Friday’s drill marked the first residents had taken part in an actual evacuation drill. At a local elementary school, 44 students who were on the school’s premises were rushed to its gymnasium following the broadcast. Shin Kikuchi, the school’s principal, expressed hope that key information will be relayed smoothly by the central and local governments, as the students must depend on authorities for such details. On March 6, North Korea simultaneously launched four ballistic missiles, three of which landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone. Tokyo estimated that one of the missiles fell into the Sea of Japan just 200 km off the Ishikawa Prefecture’s Noto Peninsula.

N. Korea blasts U.S. bombing drills in S. Korea

2017/03/16 15:10

SEOUL, March 16 (Yonhap) -- North Korea on Thursday condemned South Korea and the United States for "escalating nuclear attack threats," citing the participation of U.S. strategic bombers and the nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson in joint military drills in South Korea. North Korea's official news agency, KCNA, said a fleet of B-1B Lancer bombers from the Andersen air base on Guam made a stealth flight over the Sangdong firing range of South Korea on Monday for about an hour on a nuclear bomb-dropping drill aimed at making preemptive strikes at major targets of the DPRK. DPRK is an acronym for Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name. The defense ministry didn't confirm the deployment of the U.S. strategic assets to the region, where tensions have increased in recent weeks with North Korea's missile launches and the killing of Kim Jong-un's half-brother in Malaysia. A spokesman for U.S. Forces Korea said, "We do not discuss operational matters." Seoul and Washington kicked off their annual joint drills -- the computer simulation-based Key Resolve and field-centered Foal Eagle -- in March. The two-week Key Resolve started Monday, while Foal Eagle runs through the end of April. Pyongyang has long denounced the exercises as rehearsals for an invasion despite Washington's assurance that they are defensive in nature. The communist North also blasted a joint drill by South Korea, the United States and Japan to detect and trace North Korean missiles. The exercise involving Aegis-equipped destroyers from the countries began on Tuesday. The North's official news agency said this clearly shows that its enemies' reckless military act to make a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK has reached a "very dangerous phase."

Inching towards nuclear war? It's terrifying. North Korea's use of missiles threatens a new global flashpoint which could suck in South Korea, China, Japan and the US

By Neil Tweedie for the Daily Mail Published: 19:37 EDT, 16 March 2017 | Updated: 22:14 EDT, 16 March 2017

At 8.30 in the morning, rush hour is in full swing in the South Korean capital Seoul, home to some 25 million people. Those commuters crammed into the underground system are the lucky ones — initially, at least. When the missile hits, they are protected from the blinding light of the 20-kiloton detonation. But above ground, in the area centred on the Yeouido financial district, all is destruction. Buildings up to a mile from Ground Zero have been vaporised or reduced to rubble. Some 70,000 people are dead, killed by the heat and the blast wave. Many more will succumb to radiation burns and radioactive fall-out over coming days. The nuclear nightmare that has long bedevilled South Korea — America’s key ally in the region and one of the world’s most dynamic economies — has become reality. North Korea, most rogue of rogue nations, has struck. The nuclear explosion, similar in size to that which levelled Hiroshima, signalled the start of a blitzkrieg-style ground invasion intended to swiftly overwhelm its richer, more advanced neighbour. A second atomic warhead, inbound on a crude Rodong rocket, has been successfully intercepted by America’s THAAD (Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence) anti-ballistic missile system. But Seoul’s torment is only beginning as hundreds of North Korean heavy guns rain down shells on the capital, many containing Sarin nerve gas. The city, bunched up against the North-South border, is hopelessly vulnerable to a mass sneak attack of the kind now taking place, as hundreds of thousands of North Korean troops, and thousands of tanks, pour out of innumerable underground bunkers built within miles of the Demilitarized Zone between the two countries. The rest of the world watches as the horror is relayed via 24-hour rolling news and on social media. And waits for the next move ... Could such a scenario ever come to pass? Will Kim Jong-un, latest incarnation of the cult dynasty that has ruled the Communist northern half of Korea since 1948, exchange bluff for action and, one day, deploy his small but lethal nuclear arsenal? That terrifying possibility moved a step nearer this month when, without warning, Kim Jong-un ordered a salvo of missiles to be fired towards his other nervous neighbour, Japan. The latest in a series of escalating acts of provocation by the North Korean dictator this year saw three (non-nuclear) missiles land in Japanese waters. North Korean media, which released photographs of the launch ‘supervised’ by a delighted Kim Jong-un, said the missiles had been aimed at American bases in Japan. International condemnation was swift and wide-ranging, with the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, describing the launch as a ‘new level’ of threat. The U.S. appears to be losing patience. On Tuesday, it ratchetted-up the pressure further with the deployment to Korean waters of the super-carrier USS Carl Vinson. The 100,000-ton Nimitz-class carrier, with 40-plus F-18 fighters on board, and a powerful escort of cruisers and destroyers, is the ultimate ‘big stick’ expression of American power — and a provocation to paranoid minds in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang. Sources in South Korea are claiming the heightened military presence — which includes moving in ‘Grey Eagle’ attack drones — is part of a U.S. plan to ‘decapitate’ North Korean leadership and demolish key military facilities. Ostensibly, Vinson is there to take part in the annual U.S.-South Korean joint military exercises — codenamed ‘Foal Eagle’ and ‘Key Resolve’ — involving 300,000 South Korean personnel and 20,000 Americans. This act of allied solidarity was met, as usual, with blood-curdling threats from Pyongyang. It warned of ‘merciless ultra-precision strikes from ground, air, sea and underwater’ in retaliation. As the Vinson berthed in the South Korean port of Busan, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, on a tour of the region, warned that the ‘diplomatic and other efforts of the past 20 years to bring North Korea to a point of denuclearisation have failed’. The United States, said Tillerson, had provided $1.35 billion in assistance to Pyongyang to encourage it to abandon its nuclear programme, but to no effect. A ‘new approach’ was required — but what that might be, he refused to say. President Donald Trump has stated that ‘every option was on the table’ when it comes to North Korean aggression. While the phrase was meant to reassure, many Japanese, and South Koreans worry that the Americans are contemplating pre-emptive strikes on North Korean military sites — which would indeed place them in the crosshairs of retaliatory attacks. In unusually graphic language, China, North Korea’s reluctant patron, has warned that the communist state and the U.S. are like ‘two accelerating trains’ speeding towards a head-on crash. The rhetoric may not be misplaced. If World War III is to break out anywhere, then it will probably be in this febrile region. North Korea is intent on developing nuclear-tipped missiles that can hit the States. Large areas of Japan and all of South Korea are already in range. Its nuclear arsenal numbers some 20 Hiroshima-size atomic bombs. What is not clear is if North Korea has the ability to marry these A-bombs to its missiles to create workable devices. But even the most cautious of analysts warns it is only a matter of time. Kim Jong-un, irrational and unpredictable at the best of times, appears increasingly trigger-happy, revelling in his ability to make Western powers squirm. In February, North Korea launched an intermediate-range ballistic missile, superior to anything that had gone before. Just days later came the brazen murder, by a hit squad using powerful VX nerve toxin of Kim Jong-un’s estranged half-brother, Kim Jong-nam. The manner of the killing, at Kuala Lumpur airport in Malaysia, was intended to strike terror into the hearts of exiled opponents of the Kim regime. (Yesterday, Interpol issued warrants for the arrest of four North Koreans in connection with the murder.) It is, however, the test-firing of four ballistic missiles towards Japan on March 5 (a fifth is thought to have failed) that most concerns the West. The missiles themselves are not the most worrying feature. Unlike the one launched on February 12, these were not propelled by solid-fuel motors which allow for quick launches. Nor did they have intercontinental range. Judging by the distance (600 miles) and height (160 miles) reached by the missiles, they were probably what experts call ‘extended-range’ Scuds, acquired in the Nineties after the fall of the Soviet Union. What truly alarmed was the simultaneous, multiple-firing, which suggests advanced operational skill; the impact area of three of the missiles within 200 miles of Japan; and the threats that followed. North Korea’s UN ambassador claimed that the situation on the Korean Peninsula was ‘inching to the brink of a nuclear war’. China’s intervention, calling on the U.S. and South Korea to halt military exercises in exchange for North Korea suspending tests seems, not surprisingly, to have fallen on deaf ears, as evidenced by the arrival of the Carl Vinson this week. For the time being, the U.S. military response is defensive, bringing forward the long-planned installation of its anti-ballistic missile system, known as THAAD, on South Korean soil. The system, while not perfect, is designed to knock out Scud-type missiles. China has called the installation of THAAD a provocative military escalation, a claim echoed by Russia. Both nations fear that the system’s radar would allow the Americans to peer deep into their territory and monitor their missile tests. China views every U.S. military development in its hemisphere as an attempt to thwart its ambitions for regional dominance. But America needs Chinese help in reining in Pyongyang. The best outcome for all in the region would be for China to use its leverage as North Korea’s biggest trading partner and main source of arms, food and energy to persuade Kim Jong-un to halt his nuclear ambitions. China has, in fact, recently put pressure on its troublesome semi-ally, announcing last month that it was stopping imports of North Korean coal, a third of the poverty-stricken nation’s exports. However, Beijing has always been cautious about actions that could cause the collapse of the North Korean system, and with it a flood of refugees. Before leaving office, Barack Obama warned Donald Trump that North Korea was the gravest security risk he would face as president. Every day that has passed since the inauguration confirms this assessment. Perhaps the best hope for those living in the shadow of North Korea’s nuclear ambitions lies in 33-year-old Kim Jong-un himself. He loves the good things in life, yachts, cars, the best tobacco, even as his people go hungry. War with South Korea means instant war with the United States, and whatever mayhem North Korea can cause during its brief nuclear rampage, it cannot hope to prevail against the world’s only superpower. In signing the order to attack South Korea, Kim would be signing his own death warrant. We must hope Kim Jong-un is still sane enough to understand that.

Horror as father and son have throats slit in Paris street killing

A FATHER and son have died after a knifeman slit their throats in a stabbing in Paris in broad daylight.

By Katie Mansfield PUBLISHED: 12:13, Fri, Mar 17, 2017 | UPDATED: 17:15, Fri, Mar 17, 2017

Police sources say the men were discovered with their throats slit outside a building in the French capital’s 11th district. Both men died at the scene as paramedics tried to save them. The attack happened on Rue de Montreuil in the east of the French capital near Place de la Nation. One resident told Le Parisien: "I went down. I saw a body in the hall, a body in the yard and a third person sitting with the firemen and policemen around. There was blood everywhere.” Armed police surrounded the scene as officers launched an investigation into the attack. Police have arrested a man in connection with the attack. He is said to be a family member. Police sources have called for caution on the motives of the knifeman. Judicial police are leading the investigation. Local media say the father was killed in the courtyard of the building. The knifeman, said to be his son, is thought to have stabbed him in the stomach before slitting his throat. Witnesses said the killer then sat by the body. Police have set up a psychological unit on the ground floor for those affected by witnessing the killing. Traffic was stopped in the area with firefighters and SWAT officers at the scene throughout Friday afternoon. The attack comes amid high security in the city just hours before Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge visit to meet President Francois Hollande. France remains under a state of emergency following a string of deadly terror attacks in the past 18 months.

THOMASDISHAW.COM Mar 17, 2017

Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey is facing three felony charges for his involvement in child prostitution. The charges come after Shortey was caught in a motel room with a 17-year-old boy where it was apparent the two were there to engage in sexual acts. Shortey, who is 35, has a wife and three young children. Police were tipped off by the teen’s father. Authorities were able to obtain a search warrant during which they discovered the juvenile’s Kindle Fire tablet containing a conversation between him and Shortey pertaining to sex in exchange for money. The felony charges that Shortey will be facing include: -Engaging in child prostitution -Engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church. -Transporting a minor for prostitution/lewdness. While the age of sexual consent in Oklahoma is 16, state child prostitution laws apply to any person under the age of 18. Both Shortey and the teenage boy admit to being acquaintances for about a year, having met through Craigslist and later communicating on the messenger application Kik, which has been criticized as being unsafe for minors. Within a few hours after the arrest, Shorty was released on a $100,000 bond. Shortey has been a senator since 2010. He is a staunch Republican and was the state chair of President Donald Trump’s campaign during the primary elections. During his time in the state Senate Shortly pushed bills that targeted the expulsion of illegal immigrants and the expansion of the state’s gun rights. Ironically a few of his bills targeted gay and transgendered people, including a measure passed earlier this year that would allow business owners to discriminate against gay people. His most notable bill, however, was introduced in 2012 and would have banned the use of aborted human fetuses in food. The bill garnered a lot of controversies both in-state and around the country. The bill was never granted a hearing in a Senate Committee. The arrest has, of course, led to calls for Shortey’s resignation. The Oklahoma Senate imposed sanctions on Wednesday voting 43-0 for a resolution that accuses him of “disorderly behavior.” Among other things, it removes Shortey from membership and leadership of various Senate committees, bars him from occupying his office and reserved parking spot at the Capitol, blocks his expense allowances and authorship of bills, and revokes his right to have an executive assistant. Shortey will, according to Senate officials, still receive his $38,400 annual salary as a senator and will be allowed to vote. The allegations have also raised red flags pertaining to Shortey’s involvement with the Oklahoma City YMCA’s Youth and Government Program. Shorty has since been removed from his volunteer position of which he served over the last 17 years. He had been active in the program and served as a chaperone on several out-of-state trips. The organization is unaware of any allegations of wrongdoing involving Shortey’s work for the program, but the agency is conducting an internal investigation due to the nature of the criminal case.

Nuclear Engineer: My biggest concern is Fukushima plant will collapse… Concrete under reactors is being “eaten away”… “There’s ongoing chemical attacks” — Containment structures are tilting, in jeopardy of falling over (AUDIO)

Published: March 17th, 2017 at 6:19 am ET By ENENews KGO 810 AM, Feb 9, 2017 (at 9:15 in):

Pat Thurston, host (emphasis added): “There’s a story that’s going around the internet, Snopes says there’s nothing to verify that this is true — I guess Tepco is denying it — but there’s a story going around that the containment structure is in jeopardy — its tilting — it’s in jeopardy of falling over, so we’ll talk about that too — if that is even a possibility. Were that to happen, what would that mean?… First, to the issue of the potential for a collapse of the building — for the building to topple over — for it to somehow to collapse. Is that a thing? Can that happen?” Arnie Gundersen, nuclear engineer: “Yeah, it can happen — and that’s my biggest concern. Tepco is building a wall along the ocean… it’s trapping all this groundwater onsite, and essentially making the ground mushy… There’s already significant damage [to the reactor buildings] — the entire coast of Japan dropped three feet during that earthquake and never rebounded… But the Fukushima site didn’t fall straight, it fell at an angle, it’s about a two inch incline across the site now. So the buildings are in mushy ground and they’re not quite straight. The other part is that there’s a toxic brew of radioactive chemicals inside there, but there’s also just chemicals – they’re eating away at the concrete and they’re eating away at the steel. It’s a nasty chemical broth inside these plants. My fear is that if there’s a Richter 7 quake, not the Richter 9 that happened 6 years ago, if there’s a Richter 7 quake on that site it could breach those containments… The horse is out of the barn at that point… (discussion continues at 32:00 in) On toppling over… probably half the concrete inside the containment that was originally there has been eaten away by the hot radioactive fuel — and there’s ongoing chemical attacks — so I really think the concrete under the containment is pretty darn punky [“resembling punk in being soft or rotted”] right now, and is getting punkier as time goes on.” ENENews has published several reports in recent weeks on this topic: TV: Collapse imminent at Fukushima — Officials find large section under reactor is “unstable… about to collapse” (VIDEOS) Expert: “Potential Global Catastrophe” from Fukushima Unit 2 highly radioactive fuel… Reactor could be destroyed, “making Tokyo area uninhabitable”… This is “most dreaded” scenario — Already “partially liquefying” below reactors Expert warns of collapse at Fukushima reactor: “It would be the end of Japan” — AP: Melted fuel has broken pieces of structure in containment vessel (VIDEO)

Evacuation in California after massive cracks appear in the street, driveways and sidewalks in new development in Rancho Santa Fe

By Strange Sounds - Mar 15, 2017

Three homes in a Del Dios development near Lake Hodges were evacuated after after massive cracks appear in the street, driveways and sidewalks. A huge mass of earth is being pulled by gravity down slope. Consequently homes are sinking… And if this ‘landslide’ suddenly cracks a natural gas line, you can asphyxiate and that has already happened! Behind security gates is a newer development called Cielo with magnificent views and million-dollar mansions built on steep hilltops. But the earth beneath at least three of them is starting to shift. According to geologists, what they are experiencing is an arcuate failure or pull away service where this mass of earth is being pulled by gravity down slope. Such slides are home destroyers. They are slow-moving, but still dangerous. If it cracks a natural gas line, you can asphyxiate and that has happened. By most accounts, the cracks showed up just in the last week-and-a-half. These are properties worth millions of dollars, built just in the last 18 months. They are situated on a steep slope high above Lake Hodges. The cause of the sinking has not been identified. So far, just the three properties are showing signs the earth is moving, but neighbors are also feeling a little on edge.

Secret Service Laptop Stolen With Trump Tower Floor Plans & Info On Clinton Scandal

by Staff Writer 9 · March 17, 2017

On Friday, law enforcement sources told multiple news agencies that a laptop containing floor plans for Trump Tower, information about the Hillary Clinton investigation and other national security information was stolen from a Secret Service Agent’s car. ABC News, CBS News, the NY Daily News and more stated that police sources confirmed that the incident happened on Thursday morning. If you have tips you want American Military News to investigate please email tips@americanmilitarynews.com . Your identity will be protected. Among other items stolen with the laptop were coins and a black bag that had the Secret Service insignia on it. Those were later recovered, but the laptop with “sensitive” material on it has not yet turned up. The Secret Service agent’s car was in the driveway of her home in New York when a thief reportedly stole the items. The NY Daily News reported that the thief “stepped out of a car, possibly an Uber, on a street in Bath Beach and stole the laptop from the agent’s vehicle. Video footage shows the suspect leaving the scene with a backpack. “The agent also told investigators that while nothing about the White House or foreign leaders is stored on the laptop, the information on there could compromise national security,” the NY Daily News reported. The suspect also took “sensitive” documents and the agent’s access keycard. CBS News reported that sources told them that the laptop also contained some important documents pertaining to Pope Francis. “The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there’s very little we have on our side,” a police source told the NY Daily News. “It’s a very big deal.” “There’s data on there that’s highly sensitive,” they added. “They’re scrambling like mad.” ABC News reported that the computer “is encrypted and authorities are able to wipe the hard drive remotely if needed.”

Massive Chaos And Carnage Averted, This Time, What Happens The Next? War Drums Beating As Turkish Foreign Minister Warns: 'Holy Wars Will Soon Begin In Europe'

March 16, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

In this brand new story from Daniel Lang over at SHTFPlan we're shown several 'mind-boggling' photos of 10,000 illegal firearms which were recently seized by Spanish police after a massive weapons operation was busted in Spain. With guns including anti-aircraft guns, machine guns and mortar rounds, this new RT story reports the illegal arsenal was likely meant for sale to criminals and terrorists according to Europol. With the massive 'trojan horse invasion' of Europe by terrorists posing as refugees still ongoing with refugees still pouring in to European nations despite less than 10% of 'planned refugee relocations' having been carried out, more and more signs are emerging that we could soon be witnessing outright war all across Europe after Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stated "Holy wars will soon begin in Europe". We hear about this 'threat' in the 1st video below. Warning that 'wars of religion' in Europe will soon begin and that Europe is collapsing, we see that the globalist-backed Islamic attempt to overthrow Europe is being kicked into overdrive. We take a look below at what that might mean for us here in America with Obama-backed judges working dilligently to trample upon President Donald Trump's attempts to keep America and Americans safe from the same fate Europe is now suffering through. As the SHTFPlan story clearly points out, it's very difficult for most people in Europe to acquire guns legally as much of Europe is a 'gun-free zone'. Just imagine the kind of chaos and carnage that could be caused by terrorists who were able to get possession of an arsenal that looks like this. This LOOKS like preparation for war! While chaos and carnage was averted, this time, how many more such operations are being run across Europe or America, meant to supply 'trojan horse terrorists' with weapons capable of taking down airplanes or taking out big chunks of small cities? Having a value of more than 10 million euro on the black market, one Spanish govt spokeperson stated: 'This modus operandi used to purchase weapons is the same as the one used for the attacks carried out in Paris on January 7th, 2015, against employees of the satirical weekly "Charlie Hebdo", in which 12 people were killed and another 11 injured, all with recommissioned weapons acquired at the time from a Slovak gunsmith.' As we are told in the 2nd video below, this massive weapons haul would have easily have been enough to either start a small war or carry out a coup. What did they have in mind for it? While we're grateful that authorities were able to bust up that ring, seeing the amount of weapons terrorists might have been able to get their hands on is quite disturbing. Certainly nothing good could ever come of these falling into the wrong hands. Also giving us another reason to back President Trump's immigration plans that keep getting shot down by Obama-appointed judges, (the latest one who has seemingly ruled a Muslim Imam has special Constitutional Rights to bring anyone he wants from terror countries in America), we're a bit concerned that President Trump's new national security advisor appears to share Barack Obama's view on Islam and terror as Raymond Ibrahim reports in this new story. As we reported back on March 5th, something very sinister is going on with Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, the 'deep state' and the remainder of the election losers and their continuing attempts to sabotage and bring down President Trump, thus bringing down America as well. As we reminded you then, according to one expert, "Barack Obama switched sides in the war on terror" and we saw that in the US government's support of terrorists in Syria. After taking the Muslim Brotherhood off the terror watchlist, Obama invited them into the White House and if Obama really is 'an agent of Islamic terror' as many have warned, it's easy to see why the war against President Trump and America continues even though Obama is no longer in the White House. And what ever happened to all of the weapons that the govt purchased during the Obama administration for agencies such as the US Postal Service, the FDA, and practically every other government agency large and small? As we recently learned from WND, the DHS is now rationing ammunition to agents in the field. Where in the world have all the bullets gone? Are they being held in some warehouse somewhere in preparation to be used against the American people? Simply knowing that Barack Obama and the globalists are doing everything in their power to sabotage the agenda of President Trump tells us much that we need to know. America could be heading towards very dark days if Obama truly is himself a 'sleeper agent of Islam' and he's allowed to continue the Islamic jihad agenda for America. As we hear in the final video below from a former Muslim, Islam is a political system and according to her, there is no way that you can separate 'radical Islam' from 'spiritual Islam', "they are the same thing" she tells us. In fact, according to this former Muslim, she was also brought up to wage jihad against Christianity and the West. How can Americans possibly coexist peacefully with those who want to destroy us because of our religious beliefs? Between France's 'fatal attraction to Islam' to the Swedish 'welfare state' funding Islamic terrorism to much of Europe being completely overrun by those seeking to impose their will upon the people, not assimilate into the culture, we understand why its ever more important for President Trump's plans to be implemented here, before we're seeing widespread threats of 'holy wars' being carried out in US streets.

America’s Final Solution-Only Trump Stands In the Way

By Dave Hodges

The criminal elite are panicked over what the Trump movement has brought to the forefront. Millions of previous unaware Americans are learning how evil is the system of governance that they have been living under truly is and they are angry beyond belief. This has forced the hand of the criminal elite and they are accelerating their timetable of total subjugation. A New Age of Genocide Is Being Unveiled Move over, Mao, Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot, there is a new extermination king in town. It is called Agenda 2030. In the Agenda 2030 conference previously held in Paris is being guided by 17 goals which contains targets that will forever alter humanity and change the planet forever. Of particular concern is goal #12, as it is the conduit from which the globalist depopulation agenda will be ushered in. Agenda 2030 Goal #12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns Following the planned economic collapse, Agenda 2030 will enforce the most brutal austerity programs ever conceived of, or ever enforced. Just as it was in the Hunger Games movie, all food, water and medicine will be rationed. Inhabitants will be forced to take the Mark of the Best, the dreaded but largely unknown RFID chip. We are already witnessing the birth of a cashless society. Soon, cash will be banned. Automation will bring promises of unlimited food production. The public will be sold on the widespread use of robots to achieve this goal. It will be a ruse. The goal is to replace human workers with robots. The globalists will horde the food in order to help wipe out the ‘useless eaters’ through starvation. Then the population will be forced into a devastating World War III. Subsequently, Ted Turner and the other globalists will be able to achieve their goals of reducing the world’s population to a low of 500,000,000. Predictive Programming of Man’s Demise From the early 1960’s, the TV show, The Twilight Zone predicted the obsolescence of mankind through automation. It is chilling that a TV show from over 5o years ago predicted the time and events that we are now living in. Humans Are the Excess Inventory of the World What do business owners do with their excess inventory? They at first try to get rid of the product by selling at a reduced price and when that fails, they simply destroy the inventory. The latter is the fate that awaits the American people and ultimately the human race. Soon, humanity will no longer be needed because humanity has become the newest form of excess inventory. Over 90% of us will soon be obsolete. Soft Kill Methods Fluoride, aluminum from chemtrails and specific vaccines, artificial sweeteners, dangerous drugs (VIOXX) have constituted some of the passive means of depopulation. Humanity’s very existence is under assault. Why? Because the majority of humans are no longer needed as a species. One of the popular sayings in our society in regard to how many things causes cancer is to dismiss the danger as “everything causes cancer”. And of course, anybody that writes about our toxic environment, dangerous GMO food supply and tainted drinking water is a conspiracy theorist unless they work for the EPA and are preparing to steal your land. As devastating as the soft kill methods that we have been forced to endure are, these methods pale in comparison as to what lies ahead. Take the Globalists At Their Word The words of Henry Kissinger tells humanity what lies ahead. It’s no longer the Third World. Kissinger’s attitude towards all of humanity can be summed as, “We don’t need you anymore”. On this point, Kissinger has a lot of company as depopulation has been the order of the day for quite some time among the globalists. “A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal”. Ted Turner, in an interview with Audubon magazine “The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary”. Initiative for the United Nations ECO-92 EARTH CHARTER “No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a LUCIFERIAN Initiation.” – David Spangler Director of Planetary Initiative for the United Nations The above used to be just words, now they form the philosophy of the Fabian Socialists that are running the planet. Through Agenda 2030 and Goal #12, their words are fast becoming reality. Why Humans Are No Longer Needed The bulk of humanity has become expendable. We were good to the elite when they could exploit our labor and enjoy the fruits of humanity’s talents. One-third of jobs now performed by humans will be replaced by software, robots, and smart machines by 2025, according to a prediction by information technology research and advisory firm, Gartner. Some estimate that by 2050, 75% of all jobs will be eliminated by automation. This prediction reflects the evolution of robot capability, said Ryan Calo, a professor at University of Washington School of Law with an expertise in robotics. Robotic abilities are quickly surpassing human ability. Robots do not require food, health benefits nor do they require a minimum wage. The use of robotics in replacing humans will only continue to expand, according to Ray Kurzweil, the director of engineering at Google. Kurzweil anticipates that by 2029 robots will have reached human levels of intelligence and functionality. Many experts predict that these robots will put people out of work and this is exactly what we are finding. Automation has lessened the need for human capital. In short, we have become excess inventory and must be disposed of. For many who cover the misdeeds of the criminal elite, we know at the root of this struggle is the need for the elite to eliminate 90% of all humanity before humanity realizes the true nature of the coming agenda and rises up to oppose this tyranny. In order to accomplish this, the elite need to move from passive soft kill to hard kill methods and they need to do so very quickly. In order to accomplish this agenda, complete political control must be realized. The former beacon of freedom to the world, the United States must be obliterated along with any notion of individual liberties. The Final Solution There will become a bifurcation point where soft kill methods, and diluting the native population through massive immigration will not be enough to ensure total dictatorial control over the planet by the globalists because its methods of replacement are not expeditious enough. That is when soft kill will need to become the Final Solution of hard kill. In history, the pattern is always the same: Step One Perpetrate an economic collapse that will put millions of desperate people on the street. The Ameruica Spring, courtesy of George Soros is coming. Step Two Combine the economic collapse with the creation of a false flag series of events which necessitates the need for martial law and extreme measures of subjugation. It would appear that a mass casualty event is in the works. Step Three  Step Five Systematically exterminate the undeCordon people off for their own protection Step Four Exploit whatever free labor can be extracted from this doomed group while they are being protected sirable group as a move to promote national unity against a contrived common enemy (e.g. Christians) Step Six World War III will evolve out of the turmoil as was the case with World War II-Serfdom will re-emerge Step Seven This is when global depopulation will begin in earnest. When the smoke clears and the bulk of humanity has been buried, the New World Order will truly be born. These seven steps are all supported by past history. What makes Americans think that we are immune to established historical precedent? Sometimes it is good to be reminded of who we are fighting and what their Agenda (2030) consists of. MAYBE WE SHOULD ALL DO SOMETHING TO HELP DONALD TRUMP BECAUSE THE ALTERNATIVE IS……

As the Day Approaches

By Hal Lindsey

Just over two years ago, the Barna Group polled Americans about the end times. They found that 41 percent agree with the sentence, “The world is currently living in the ‘end times’ as described by prophecies in the Bible.” This is more than a vague awareness that things are off-track; more than an ill-defined sense of looming apocalypse. This is a specific belief that the events of our time match the Bible’s description of the end time. 2 Peter 3:10-13 says, “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, on account of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.” (NASB) Peter asked, “What sort of people ought you to be?” The King James Version translates it, “What manner of persons ought ye to be?” (KJV) Through Peter, the Holy Spirit tells the reader that the things of this world we get hung up on — money, houses, cars and other luxuries — will not last. He’s telling us to take the long view of history. Look at the big picture. See your life in context — not just the context of tomorrow or next week, but of eternity. Peter asked, “Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be?” Those words were hardly on the page when he began giving the answer. “In holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God.” (2 Peter 3:11-12 NASB) Forty-one percent believe we are in the end times as described in the Bible. So why don’t they live “in holy conduct and godliness?” Forty-one percent is not a majority, but it is such a large minority that mainstream advertisers would never want to offend it. The celebration of evil that permeates American entertainment would not hold — at least not in the mainstream. But even Christians can lose the ability to blush. The world is falling into a pit of violent debauchery, and a large percentage of people who believe Jesus is coming soon, are following the world down. We desperately need another Great Awakening in the United States. That doesn’t just mean sinners being saved. An awakening includes reformation and revival. Christians, including the clergy, need to renew their love for God and His word — to love Him more than money, prestige, or comfort. Hebrews gives us a great picture of how to live our lives, and then says that it is especially true for those who live in the end times. “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:23-25 NKJV) Two years ago, 41% of Americans said they could “see the Day approaching.” So why aren’t the 41% holding fast the confession of their hope without wavering? Why aren’t we stirring up love and good works in one another? Why do so many forsake the assembling together of those with like faith? I’ve spent much of my life pointing out just how near we are to “the Day.” It’s heartening that so many Americans now agree with that basic message. I pray that this glorious belief will begin to manifest itself in our attitudes and actions. When that happens, we will see miracles!

Analysis: Will the Israel, Syria missile flare-up set a new precedent?

By Yossi Melman March 17, 2017 16:14

The incident showed the explosiveness that is threatening Israeli-Syrian relations, with the presence of Iran and Hezbollah, who are attempting to reach Israel's borders. In the most serious border incident since the start of the Syrian civil war six years ago, Arrow defense system intercepted a Syrian Missile fired at an IAF fighter jet, just after midnight on Thursday night. The incident showed the explosiveness that is threatening Israeli-Syrian relations, with the presence of Iran and Hezbollah, who are attempting to reach Israel's borders. Sponsored by the Syrian military regime under President Bashar Assad, the forces are looking to open a new front in addition to the Lebanese border. Thursday night’s incident was similar to about 15 events that had been reported by foreign media over the past six years. One can estimate that Israel's intelligence gathered accurate information which enabled the IAF to target what is considered "Strategic weapons," or in other words, accurate, long-range missiles. After completing the mission, while on their way back to Israel, Syria’s anti-aircraft missile defense system was activated. However, the fired missile missed the IAF planes. Syria’s response to the IAF’s fire forced the IAF to use it’s own Arrow battery, to shoot down at least one Syrian missile. It would be the first time that the Arrow defense system, which was built to intercept ground-to-ground and ballistic missiles, was successfully used to shoot down an anti-aircraft missile. Israel presumably did not intend to report the attack, wanting to continue with its ambiguous policy of neither confirming nor denying its actions in Syria. Such attacks are usually reported by foreign media and official statements from the Syrian army. This time, however, the IDF spokesperson confirmed the attacks in the early morning hours, a result of the fact that alert systems were activated in the Jordan Valley and Jerusalem area. Residents claimed to have heard and seen the launch. An IDF source told The Jerusalem Post that Israel has no plans to escalate or intensify tension with the Syrian army; however, Israel will continue to operate according it’s red lines, working to stop transfer of weapons, mainly accurate long-range missiles being transferred from Iran, through Syria, to Hezbollah. Syria, Iran and Hezbollah also have no interest in an escalation, especially with Syria's civil war raging on with no end in sight. This issue was a focal point in talks last week with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. Netanyahu sought to intensify Putin's understanding of Israel's interests in Syria as well as its red lines. Netanyahu stressed that Israel will not allow any attempts by Iran or Hezbollah to send their forces to Israel's border with Syria in the Golan Heights. However, it seems that even though Putin may understand Israel's interests, Russia's influence on Assad and his army is not absolute.

No offense to the ‘Arrow,’ but greater threats loom from the north

While Friday’s use of surface-to-air missiles by Assad against Israeli jets is worrying, Iranian-built rocket factories in Syria and Lebanon are worse

By Avi Issacharoff and Times of Israel staff March 17, 2017, 2:57 pm

Set aside for one moment the celebrations here regarding the successful interception by the Arrow missile defense system of a Syrian missile early Friday. Israel has no shortage of reasons to be concerned by “the message” involved in Syria’s firing of surface-to-air missiles at Israeli fighter jets overnight. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the increasingly worrying situation taking shape in the north. It would seem that Assad wants to put Israel on notice that he no longer intends to sit idly by while weapons convoys headed from Syria to the Hezbollah terror group in Lebanon are destroyed by the IDF. According to Arab-language media reports, the target of the Israeli airstrike — which is said to have occurred near the Lebanese town of Baalbek — was a convoy of trucks carrying “strategic weapons,” a term which Israel has previously used to define advanced missiles and chemical weapons. In the past, Assad has rarely responded to reported Israeli air and missile strikes on targets deep within Syria. His apparent growing confidence would appear to come from his recent successes in defeating rebel groups and the Islamic State in the brutal Syrian civil war, thanks largely to massive Russian support. It is unlikely that there was any Russian involvement in firing the missiles at the Israeli jets. Israel works very hard to coordinate with Moscow to ensure no accidental clashes with the superpower in Syria’s crowded skies. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a frequent visitor to Moscow, most recently last week where he went to press Russian President Vladimir Putin to try and prevent Israel’s arch-foe Iran from filling the vacuum in Syria left by the nearly vanquished Islamic state. These concerns show that the use of surface-to-air missiles against Israeli fighter planes is only a minor headache for Israel. A much greater problem for the Jewish state lies with a report published earlier this week in the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida that Iran has established rocket factories in Syria and Lebanon capable of producing long-range missiles. According to the al-Jarida report, the missile production facilities are built deep underground and are operated by advisers from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, as well as Lebanese experts trained at the Imam Hossein University in Tehran, a key training institution for IRGC personnel. The goal of these factories is said to be to produce highly accurate missiles and rockets capable of striking strategic targets in Israel, and if reports leaking out in the Arab-language media are true, then it is safe to say these factories will not be easily destroyed in Israeli airstrikes. The Iranian missile factories in Syria and Lebanon also correspond with Iran’s desire to establish a naval port in Syria to be leased for 50 years, which would help Iran guarantee its interests in the war-torn nation. All of this points to a trend that we will likely see much more of in 2017: as the Islamic State terror group gets weaker, the influence of the Islamic Republic of Iran expands and gets stronger.

Homeschoolers under attack by officials conducting unannounced visits

Sunday, March 12, 2017 by: Thomas Dishaw

(Natural News) School officials in Paris, KY are attempting to overstep their boundaries by conducting unannounced visits to homeschooling families. According to the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), these visits are a clear violation of a state-wide agreement that was implemented to protect a family’s constitutional right to privacy. The school officials claim they are only there to help the parents, but part of their plan to help involves demanding information from parents about attendance records and curriculum. They have even asked to meet the children to question them in some instances. One home school parent, Jenny Griffith, who received one of these visits said “I got the impression that district staff could become more difficult if I didn’t cooperate in answering their questions or bring out my child to meet them. I tried to handle the situation as civilly as possible, without adding any threat to them.” The officials also told her that the district intends on visiting every homeschooling family three times a year. After being alerted of these visits, the HSLDA quickly got involved and warned parents of this threat to their fourth amendment rights. On the HSLDA website, they spell out for their members what their rights are and how they should handle the situation. According to Kentucky laws, a homeschool program operates as a private school. While private schools are required to keep attendance and scholarship records (i.e. report cards) in the same manner as the local public school, homeschooling parents do not need to open their homes and present these documents simply because a school official comes knocking TJ Schmidt, a contact attorney for Kentucky through the HSLDA, also said that unless school officials receive some report or have some evidence that the parents are not educating their children, no further inquiry should be made. This agreement, known as the Best Practices Document, has been in place for more than 20 years. Schmidt also assured families that he and Cindy West, a local CHEK representative and veteran homeschooling mom in Bourbon County, have contacted the Paris Independent School District and are objecting to the visits on behalf of the parents. They expect the visits to cease but promise to monitor the situation. (RELATED: Get all the news Google is trying to hide at Censored.news.) This is not the first time that the HSLDA has had to step in when dealing with a Kentucky school district. In 2015 homeschooling families in Gallatin County, KY received a packet from Roxann Booth, the director of pupil personnel, letting them know county officials would visit the home of every homeschool program through the coming school year. The packet also contained forms that requested detailed information not required by state law. When the HSLDA was alerted about this violation Schmidt wrote a letter to Ms. Booth on behalf of the families informing her that the information requested went well beyond what is required under Kentucky law. And because home visits would violate each homeschooling individual’s privacy rights the HSLDA would legally challenge any attempt to carry out these visits. Within two weeks, every homeschooling family received a follow-up letter from Ms. Booth apologizing for the demands for additional information and the challenge to the legitimacy of their homeschool programs. Public schools do not want any challenge to their plans to turn all of our children into politically correct social justice warriors with no ability to think for themselves. As we see from these examples, they know very well where the lines are but are more than willing to cross them until someone is brave enough to stand up and tell them that they refuse to conform.

Chicago's violent gangs looting freight cars filled with guns

By Matt Finn Published March 09, 2017

The guns – boxes and boxes of them – are part of shipments that are destined for gun companies or gun shops across the country. But as gangsters have caught on to the practice, they are ransacking these trains and stealing weapons that eventually make their way to the city’s blood-soaked streets. "Any time you have individuals who can go in and steal guns from a train, that makes the environment very toxic," said Pastor Cory Brooks, who leads a church around the corner from the freight yard. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said that since 2013, more than 150 firearms have been reported stolen from freight trains. An Associated Press investigation revealed that some were traced to violent crimes and only 16 were recovered. CHICAGO RECORDS 762 HOMICIDES IN 2016, UP 57 PERCENT FROM PREVIOUS YEAR In a city already reeling from one of the most violent crime waves in years, where tens of thousands of firearms are recovered from the streets every year, 150 stolen guns might not seem like a big deal. But one single gun can be linked to at least 14 fatal shootings, according to the ATF. "How in the world are these kids getting these guns? I see them on Facebook. Everybody got guns. They can't go purchase a gun, so where are they getting them from?" said city alderwoman Emma Mitts of the 37th Ward. In one instance, thieves stole more than 100 new Ruger handguns described as "pretty" in comparison to the shoddy, makeshift guns criminals in Chicago’s rough streets often use. Brooks and Mitts both partially blame Norfolk Southern, the rail yard, saying it could easily beef up security to protect the sitting freight on its tracks. They said the company needs to do something before the weapons get in the hands of more dangerous criminals. "We need to be concerned about terrorists who could get into these areas unprotected here and steal things and explosives and really hurt our communities," Brooks said. Norfolk Southern told Fox News that it's fully liable for any stolen property. The company said it takes the issue seriously, working with all law levels of law enforcement and recently increasing security around its tracks. POLITICS OF POLICING MAKING CHICAGO CRIME WAVE WORSE? "While we can’t discuss the specifics of the ongoing investigations, we are taking significant steps to evaluate and adapt our security protocols, prevent criminal trespass and address community concerns," Norfolk Southern spokeswoman Susan Terpay wrote in an email. While working on this story, Fox News noticed a very responsive presence of security near the train yard. "Norfolk Southern’s Chicago-based police department, the largest freight railroad law enforcement force in the city, is increasing patrols of rail yards using uniformed officers in marked cars and K-9 units,” Terpay wrote. “In addition, the department is conducting undercover surveillance investigations." The company is hoping that beefed-up security at the rail yard would appease neighbors trying to keep guns out criminal hands in one of America's deadliest communities. "It only compounds that damage being done to our city,” Brooks said, “and it only hurts the individuals who are trying to live here and have a safe environment."

White Genocide In South Africa: A Plea For American Christians To Pray

On March 10, 2017 By Geri Ungurean

Recently, a reader of Raptureready.com wrote to Todd Strandberg and copied me about the atrocities happening in his country of South Africa. The writer of the email gave me permission to publish it in this piece: “On the 22nd of April the Christians of all race groups are coming together to pray for our country. God has given Angus Buchan a number of one million people who will be going. For South Africa this is a great number considering that we are 40 million people in the country. Already most places of accommodation have been sold out in the Bloemfontein area. The prayer meeting will be held on a farm outside of Bloemfontein. Our country is in a terrible state with corruption, raping, hi-jacking and the most heinous murdering and torture ever imagined (especially on farms). With the greatest of respect to all Americans due your sufferings and problems, you guy’s have no idea of the utter violence and disrespect of life that goes on in South Africa. The government has no control, and the quietness from them sends a positive message to all evil doers. The “normal” murder rate, as I understand it, is 7 people murdered for every one hundred thousand citizens. In South Africa, it is 130 for every one hundred thousand citizens. Farmers are murdered and tortured in ways you cannot imagine. There are open statements being made that all white people in this country are going to be murdered. Todd, I take a lot of encouragement from the fact that God heard the cries of His people in the USA, and changed things around for you. I ask you now, please could you stand with us in South Africa by asking our USA brothers and sisters in Christ to pray with us and stand in the gap on 22 April that God would change South Africa for His glory.” From newamerican.com South Africa Facing White Genocide, Total Communist Takeover While most of the world refuses to acknowledge what is happening in largely communist-controlled South Africa, the non-profit group Genocide Watch declared last month that preparations for genocidal atrocities against white South African farmers were underway and that the early phases of genocide had possibly already begun. In the long run, Genocide Watch chief Dr. Gregory Stanton explained, powerful communist forces also hope to abolish private-property ownership and crush all potential resistance. According to experts and official figures, at least 3,000 white farmers in South Africa, known as Boers, have been brutally massacred over the last decade. Many more, including children and even infants, have also been raped or tortured so savagely that mere words could not possibly convey the horror. And the problem is growing worse, international human rights monitors and South African exiles say. The South African government, dominated by the communist-backed African National Congress (ANC), has responded to the surging wave of racist murders by denying the phenomenon, implausibly claiming that many of the attacks are simply regular crimes. Despite fierce criticism, authorities also stopped tracking statistics that would provide a more accurate picture of what is truly going on in the so-called “Rainbow Nation.” In many cases, the murders are simply classified as “burglaries” and ignored, so the true murder figures are certainly much higher than officials admit. The police, meanwhile, are often involved in the murders or at least the cover-ups, multiple sources report. A white South African exile living in the United States told The New American that when victims are able to defend themselves or apprehend the would-be perpetrators, many of the perpetrators are found to be affiliated with the ruling ANC or its youth wing. Experts are not buying the government’s cover-up. “The farm murders, we have become convinced, are not accidental,” said Dr. Stanton of Genocide Watch during a fact-finding mission to South Africa last month. It was very clear that the massacres were not common crimes, he added — especially because of the absolute barbarity used against the victims. “We don’t know exactly who is planning them yet, but what we are calling for is an international investigation that will try and determine who is planning these murders.” Indeed, most honest analysts concede that the thousands of brutal killings and tens of thousands of attacks are part of a broader pattern. And according to Dr. Stanton, who was also involved in the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa and has decades of experience examining genocide and communist terror, the trend points toward a troubled future for the nation. “Things of this sort are what I have seen before in other genocides,” he said of the murdered white farmers, pointing to several examples including a victim’s body that was left with an open Bible on top and other murder victims who were tortured, disemboweled, raped, or worse. “This is what has happened in Burundi, it’s what happened in Rwanda. It has happened in many other places in the world.” Speaking in Pretoria at an event organized by the anti-communist Transvaal Agricultural Union, Dr. Stanton also slammed the effort to dehumanize whites in South Africa by portraying them as “settlers.” The label is meant to paint Afrikaner white farmers — descendants of Northern Europeans who arrived centuries ago — as people who do not belong there. It is the same process that happened prior to the infamous genocide against Christian Armenians in Turkey, Stanton explained. The dehumanization phenomenon also occurred against the Jewish people in Germany under the National Socialist (Nazi) regime of mass-murderer Adolf Hitler, well before the Nazi tyrant began implementing his monstrous “final solution.” Unfortunately, South Africa might be next in line, experts believe. “Whenever you have that kind of dehumanization … you have the beginning of that downward spiral into genocide,” Stanton noted, adding that the situation in South Africa had already moved beyond that stage. The next phase before extermination, which began years ago in South Africa, is organizing to actually carry it out. “We are worried that there are organized groups that are in fact doing that planning,” Stanton continued during his speech. “It became clear to us that the [ANC] Youth League was this kind of organization — it was planning this kind of genocidal massacre and also the forced displacement of whites from South Africa.” Genocide Watch raised its alert level for South Africa from stage five to stage six — the eighth and final stage is denial after the fact — when then-ANC Youth League boss Julius Malema began openly singing a racist song aimed at inciting murder against white South African farmers: “Shoot the Boer” and “Kill the Boer.” Described by the anti-genocide group as a “racist Marxist-Leninist,” Malema has also been quoted as saying that “all whites are criminals” and threatening to steal white farmers’ land by force. After the calls to genocide made international headlines, the South African Supreme Court ruled that the song advocating murder of whites was unlawful hate speech. Incredibly, the President of South Africa, ANC’s Jacob Zuma, then began singing it early this year too. Since then, the number of murdered white South African farmers has been growing each month, according to reports. Other senior government officials, meanwhile, have openly called for “war.” “This is the kind of talk that of course is not only pre-genocidal, it also comes before crimes against humanity,” Dr. Stanton said, urging everyone to remember that they are all members of the human race. “Those who would be deniers, and who would try to ignore the warning signs in this country, I think are ignoring the facts.” There is also increasing “polarization,” where the target population — white farmers in this case — and even moderates are portrayed as an “enemy,” Stanton explained about the march to genocide. And that phenomenon is ever-more apparent in South Africa, leading Genocide Watch to classify South Africa as being close to the final stages of genocide in July of this year. The issue of land distribution, which has become one of the key drivers of the downward spiral, is also among the greatest concerns. The white minority in South Africa still owns much of the land despite ANC promises to redistribute it to blacks. But the re-distribution that has occurred — like in neighboring Zimbabwe — has largely resulted in failure. Despite the atrocious track record so far, extremists including elements of the ANC-dominated government are now hoping to expropriate land from white farmers more quickly, with some factions even arguing that it should be done with no compensation at all. And the communist agenda, like virtually everywhere else where forcible land redistribution has been adopted, has even broader goals. “Whatever system of land tenure is adopted in South Africa, the communists — in the long run — have in mind to take away all private property. That should never be forgotten,” Stanton warned, noting that he had lived in communist-run countries before. “Every place you go where communists have taken over, they take away private ownership because private ownership gives people the power — the economic power — to oppose their government. Once you have taken that away, there is no basis on which you can have the economic power to oppose the government.” Meanwhile, the South African government is stepping up efforts to disarm the struggling white farmers, too — stripping them of their final line of defense. As has consistently been the case throughout history, of course, disarmament is always a necessary precursor to totalitarianism and the eventual mass slaughter of target groups. In fact, arms in the hands of citizens are often the final barrier to complete enslavement and even extermination. “The government has disbanded the commando units of white farmers that once protected their farms, and has passed laws to confiscate the farmers’ weapons,” Genocide Watch noted on its website in an update about South Africa posted last month. “Disarmament of a targeted group is one of the surest early warning signs of future genocidal killings.” The exile who spoke with TNA said that many of the guns confiscated from whites by officials have later been found at the gruesome murder scenes of white farmers. Even mere possession of an “unregistered” or “unlicensed” weapon — licenses have become extraordinarily difficult to obtain, if not impossible — can result in jail time. And in South Africa, especially for white farmers, that is a virtual death sentence, with widespread rape and HIV infections being the norm. Dr. Stanton promised the Afrikaners that he would be visiting the U.S. Embassy and bringing the issue to the attention of world leaders. However, he also urged them not to give up their guns and to continue resisting against the communist “ideology” espoused by so many of the political and party leaders that now dominate the nation’s coercive government apparatus. The United Nations defines genocide as “the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.” The term also includes actions other than simply wholesale slaughter, though. According to the UN, among the crimes that can constitute genocide are causing serious harm to members of a specific minority group, deliberately inflicting conditions on the minority aimed at bringing about its destruction in whole or in part, seeking to prevent births among the targeted population, and forcibly transferring minority children to others. Activists and exiles argue that many of those conditions have already been met — and any single one can technically constitute genocide if it is part of a systematic attempt to destroy a particular group. Meanwhile, experts say that the government is encouraging the problem, actively discriminating against whites, and in many cases even facilitating the on-going atrocities. Of course, this would not be the first time a similar tragedy has happened in Southern Africa. When Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe seized power in Zimbabwe (formerly known as Rhodesia, once one of the richest countries on the continent), he began a ruthless war against the white population and his political opponents. The country promptly spiraled into chaos and mass starvation under the Mugabe regime when the tyrant “redistributed” the farms and wealth to his cronies, who of course knew nothing about farming. The regime murdered tens of thousands of victims, and estimates suggest that millions have died as a direct result of Mugabe’s Marxist policies. Whites who refused to leave their property during the “redistribution” were often tortured and killed by the regime or its death squads. With Mugabe still in charge, the tragic plight of Zimbabwe continues to worsen today. But the mass-murdering despot is still held in high regard by many senior officials in the ANC. Not all South Africans — especially city dwellers — are convinced that there is an on-going genocide in their country, or even that one may be coming. Indeed, the vast majority of blacks and whites would simply like to live in peace with each other, and there are plenty of other problems facing South Africa at the same time. However, virtually everyone agrees that without solutions, the precarious situation in the “Rainbow Nation” will continue to deteriorate, going from bad to worse. Many activists seeking to draw attention to the issue are calling on European governments and the United States to immediately begin accepting especially vulnerable white refugees from South Africa as a high priority. There are less than five million whites in the country, about 10 percent of the population, down from almost a quarter decades ago. Analysts say that giving them asylum, however, may prove tough politically — partly because it could expose the precious establishment myths of Nelson Mandela and his ANC as being “heroic” so-called “freedom fighters.” Unsurprisingly, the establishment press has barely reported a word about the looming potential calamity. And by the time the world media finally catch on, many analysts worry that it might be too late. – source Brethren, will you join with our brothers and sisters from all over the world to pray for South Africa? The date for the gathering of Christians to meet on a farm in South Africa is April 22, 2017. Right now there are over one million people scheduled to attend. We may not be able to be there physically, but that won’t keep our prayers from reaching the ears of God. Would you please share this article with as many of the brethren as you can? Our Father heard the prayers of Christians in America, and He turned the direction we were heading around. He can do anything because he is God! Please mark your calendars to fast and pray on April 22 for the people of South Africa. MARANATHA

Assange says leaks show CIA's 'devastating incompetence'

[AFP] Dario THUBURN AFPMarch 9, 2017

London (AFP) - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday accused the CIA of "devastating incompetence" for failing to protect its hacking secrets and said he would work with tech companies to develop fixes for them. "This is a historic act of devastating incompetence, to have created such an arsenal and then stored it all in one place," Assange said. "It is impossible to keep effective control of cyber weapons... If you build them, eventually you will lose them," Assange said. Assange was speaking in a press conference streamed live from Ecuador's embassy in London, where he has been living as a fugitive from justice since 2012. He said his anti-secrecy website had "a lot more information" about the Central Intelligence Agency's hacking operation but would hold off on publishing it until WikiLeaks had spoken to tech manufacturers. "We have decided to work with them to give them some exclusive access to the additional technical details we have so fixes can be developed and then pushed out. "Once this material is effectively disarmed by us we will publish additional details about what has been occurring," he added. - CIA questions Assange 'integrity' - On Tuesday, WikiLeaks published nearly 9,000 documents it said were part of a huge trove leaked from the CIA, describing it as the largest ever publication of secret intelligence materials. "This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA," it said. In Washington, the CIA, hit hard by the apparent leak of much of its cyber-spying arsenal, defended itself while criticizing the WikiLeaks founder.

"As we've said previously, Julian Assange is not exactly a bastion of truth and integrity," said spokeswoman Heather Fritz Horniak. "Despite the efforts of Assange and his ilk, CIA continues to aggressively collect foreign intelligence overseas to protect America from terrorists, hostile nation states and other adversaries." - Assange: CIA was 'careless' - The documents showed that CIA hackers can turn a TV into a listening device, bypass popular encryption apps, and possibly control one's car. Most experts believe the materials to be genuine, and US media said Wednesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is opening a criminal probe into the leak. The investigation could focus on whether the CIA was sloppy in its controls, or, as The Washington Post reported, it could be "a major mole hunt" for a malicious leaker or turncoat inside the agency. WikiLeaks itself said the documents, hacking tools and code came from an archive that had circulated among US government hackers and private contractors. "The CIA has been so careless to produce this material. So do various cyber mafia already The CIA on Wednesday accused the group of endangering Americans, helping US rivals and hampering the fight against terror threats through its leaks. "The American public should be deeply troubled by any WikiLeaks disclosure designed to damage the intelligence community's ability to protect America against terrorists and other adversaries." "Such disclosures not only jeopardise US personnel and operations, but also equip our adversaries with tools and information to do us harm," Horniak said. While refusing to confirm the authenticity of the documents WikiLeaks published, Horniak stressed that hacking is a normal part of its mission "to be innovative, cutting-edge, and the first line of defence in protecting this country from enemies abroad."

Raising Ramses: Archaeologists lift 3,000-year-old statue of Egyptian Pharaoh considered 'one of the most important discoveries ever' from muddy ditch in Cairo slum

Researchers from Egypt and Germany found the bust of the statue and the lower part of the head

They also found upper part of a life-sized limestone statue of Pharaoh Seti II, Ramses II's grandson

Discovery was made in the working class area of Matariya among unfinished buildings and mud roads

It shows the importance of the city of Heliopolis which was dedicated to worship of Ra - the sun god

By Tim Collins and Julian Robinson for MailOnline and Reuters Published: 05:56 EDT, 13 March 2017 | Updated: 11:57 EDT, 13 March 2017

This is the moment archaeologists lifted a 3,000-year-old statue of an Egyptian Pharaoh considered 'one of the most important discoveries ever' from a muddy ditch. Experts descended on the Souq al-Khamis district of the capital Cairo and used a crane to lift the three-tonne torso of the statue, which is believed to depict revered Pharaoh Ramses II. The discovery, hailed by the Antiquities Ministry as one of the most important ever, was made near the ruins of Ramses II's temple in the ancient city of Heliopolis. Researchers from Egypt and Germany say the 26ft statue probably depicts revered Pharaoh Ramses II, who ruled Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. The first part of the colossus - a large portion of the head - was pulled up Thursday. The Ministry of Antiquities says the statue's parts would be assembled at the Egyptian museum in central Cairo, where they would be pieced together and restored before being moved to the yet-to-open Grand Egyptian Museum near the Giza Pyramids. Ramses the Great was the most powerful and celebrated ruler of ancient Egypt. Known by his successors as the 'Great Ancestor', he led several military expeditions and expanded the Egyptian Empire to stretch from Syria in the east to Nubia in the south. He was the third pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Egypt and ruled from 1279 to 1213 BCE. 'Last Tuesday they called me to announce the big discovery of a colossus of a king, most probably Ramses II, made out of quartzite,' Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani told Reuters on Thursday at the site of the statue's unveiling. 'We found the bust of the statue and the lower part of the head and now we removed the head and we found the crown and the right ear and a fragment of the right eye,' Anani said. Just days ago, archaeologists, officials, local residents, and members of the news media looked on as a massive forklift pulled the statue's head out of the water The joint Egyptian-German expedition, which included the University of Leipzig, also found the upper part of a life-sized limestone statue of Pharaoh Seti II, Ramses II's grandson, which is 80 centimetres long. The discovery was made in the working class area of Matariya, among unfinished buildings and mud roads. Dietrich Raue, head of the expedition's German team, told Reuters that ancient Egyptians believed Heliopolis was the place where the sun god lives, meaning it was off-limits for any royal residences. 'The sun god created the world in Heliopolis, in Matariya. That's what I always tell the people here when they say is there anything important. According to the pharaonic belief, the world was created in Matariya,' Raue said. 'That means everything had to be built here. Statues, temples, obelisks, everything. But ... the king never lived in Matariya, because it was the sun god living here.' The find could be a boon for Egypt's tourism industry, which has suffered many setbacks since the uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak in 2011 but remains a vital source of foreign currency. The number of tourists visiting Egypt slumped to 9.8 million in 2011 from more than 14.7 million in 2010. A bomb attack that brought down a Russian plane carrying 224 people from a Red Sea resort in October 2015 further hit arrivals, which dropped to 1.2 million in the first quarter of 2016 from 2.2 million a year earlier.

Superstar reporter goes public with Obama's creepy spying on her

Shares bizarre details about hacked computer as she investigated scandals

WASHINGTON – The woman who is perhaps the nation’s top investigative journalist is fighting back against Big Brother. Sharyl Attkisson shared with WND a detailed and harrowing description of what it was like to experience a reality straight out of Orwell: The reporter claims she was spied on by the Obama administration while investigating its scandals. What tipped her off? Imagine what it must be like to watch your computer turn itself on and off. “That’s one visible sign I noticed over many months,” Attkisson told WND in an email interview. “At the time, I suspected it was some sort of phishing program seeking my passwords and contacts, and was confident my computer had sufficient protections. I never suspected it was connected to an intrusion of my systems until sources and forensics told me that it was.” She also watched a different computer that she used delete files by itself. After Attkisson released a video showing that as it was happening, Vox’s Max Fisher claimed it was more likely that she had a stuck backspace key. WND asked, as an Emmy-award winning investigative journalist and now the anchor of her own Sunday morning national TV news program, “Full Measure,”did she find Fisher’s claim that she was confused by a keyboard plausible? “It was just a silly attempt by a noted propagandist blog that had no firsthand information to deflect from the surveillance,” she replied dismissively. “The ‘expert’ didn’t even know enough to understand there is no ‘backspace’ key on the computer shown, and — in any event — that holding down such a key cannot duplicate the super fast deletions demonstrated at the beginning of that particular video clip.” What do YOU think? Will President Trump spy on American citizens like Obama did? Sound off now in the WND Poll! The five-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting announced in January she is suing the Justice Department and seeking $35 million in damages for illegally hacking her computers and monitoring her work between 2011 and 2013. Three separate computer forensic exams of her computers revealed what appears to be stunning evidence pointing straight to the Obama administration. “The most important and irrefutable finding is: forensic evidence of a government-owned I.P. (internet protocol) address accessing my computer,” Attkisson told WND. She said she was told that was “better evidence than the U.S. had when it accused China of various acts of hacking into our government, which the government accepts as proven.” Her computers were examined by three independent forensics examiners including: a confidential source, an examiner hired by CBS News, and an examiner hired by her attorney. What they found is just stunning. Attkisson provided an itemized overview of some of their findings, and described what a confidential source and examiner hired by her attorney found:

“A government-owned I.P. address was used to access my computer.”

“We are able to see instances of exact date and time that the intruders entered my computers, and the methods they used to do so.”

“They used commercial, non-attributable software proprietary to the CIA, FBI, NSA or DIA.”

“The malware was constantly running on my computers. It included a feature that logged my keystrokes, accessed all my emails and collected my passwords.”

“Skype was surreptitiously used to listen in on audio.”

“My smartphone was also infected.”

“Three classified documents had been put on my computer.”

“Once sources notified me that I was likely being surveilled, and I discussed this in emails, the intruders took steps to erase evidence of their presence. However, the deletions themselves create a record of evidence.” CBS and its analyst found:

“Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.”

“Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts.”

“An intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data.”

“This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.”

“[Attkisson’s] systems were indeed subject to non-standard interactions between June 2012 and January 2013.”

“Definitive evidence that shows commands were run from Sharyl’s user account that she did not personally authorize.” “This history has been deliberately removed from Sharyl’s hard drive.” The intruders conducted an inordinate number of internal computer clock “time stamp” changes, likely to try to confuse any forensics that might be conducted. Why her? WND asked the former CBS Washington bureau investigative correspondent, did she think the administration considered her a foe? And acted to stop her out of purely political concerns? “I have no idea, the perpetrators would have to answer that question and they certainly aren’t stepping forward,” she replied. “But,” she continued, “my computer intrusions occurred in context of the Obama administration’s crackdown on whistleblowers and a lot of my work deals with whistleblowers.” “Additionally, we know the administration was aggressively trying to control the narrative on a number of stories it saw as damaging, especially as the re-election year of 2012 shaped up.” Attkisson detailed her experience under surveillance in 2014 in her highly acclaimed New York Times bestseller, “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.” Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, records previously obtained by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch indicate Attkisson was targeted by the Obama administration because of critical reporting. In 2014, Judicial Watch said it “obtained an October 4, 2011, email to White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz, Attorney General Eric Holder’s top press aide, (in which) Tracy Schmaler, described Attkisson as ‘out of control.’ “Schmaler added ominously, ‘I’m also calling Sharryl’s [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer’ (an apparent reference to CBS’ Chief Washington Correspondent and Face the Nation moderator Bob Scheiffer). Schultz responded, ‘Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG’ (attorney general.)” Given that Obama’s Justice Department had labeled her as “out of control” and tried to get the reporter’s employer to rein her in, WND asked Attkisson: What did she make of an administration that seeks to control reporters? “I expect it,” was the sober response. “But it’s our job to resist it and we aren’t doing a very good job of that as an industry.” (Attkisson described problems endemic in the news media, including the genesis of fake news, in an interview with WND in December previewing her new book titled “The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote,” due to be published on May 22, 2017.) Did she think her experience and that of the Associated Press and Fox News reporter James Rosen (both spied on by the Obama administration) were part of a pattern? “Yes. I was informed about my case prior to us knowing about any of the other cases, just before the Snowden revelations, and prior to former DNI (Director of National Intelligence James) Clapper falsely telling Congress that the government was not collecting data of millions of Americans…but all of these events occurred in the same general time frame.” So, was it the administration that was “out of control?” “You decide!” she replied, echoing a famous news slogan. Investigating the truth about her own story, the award-winning reporter has faced what she called a Catch-22 dilemma. “To find out who accessed my computer, we need the government’s cooperation, but the government isn’t cooperating.” “In my lawsuit, we seek to learn who had access to the I.P. address that was used to infiltrate my computer,” she continued. “To date, the Department of Justice has taken multiple steps to block us from finding this answer.” However, her persistence has revealed some com“Finally, at my request, the DOJ (Department of Justice) Inspector General’s office sent investigators to look at a separate computer, my personal home computer.” Attkisson said that although the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office will not release their notes and records, “and have improperly failed to respond to my Freedom of Information Act request for the information,” their forensics investigators reported to her that they found the following on her personal computer: “Evidence of suspicious deletions of files that could not have been done by me. “Use of my computer in ‘advanced mode’ (which was not done by me).” “‘Someone’ installed software onto my desktop and executed it and overwrote some important logs effectively covering their tracks and erasing much evidence of their actions.” “As with my CBS computer, they found a lot of unusual time and date setting changes on my personal computer as well (15 times in four days).” “They executed data recovery, recovering previously deleted logs.” Attkisson said the forensics examiners working for the Justice Department’s inspector general “told me they believed the intruder(s) were actually working in my house at the computer conducting these acts, rather than conducting them remotely, but, in fact, the acts were conducted remotelypelling results. , as with the work computers referenced above.” “Furthermore,” she continued, “the examiners indicated that prior to their supervisors signing off on their findings, ‘somebody’ narrowed their mission to only reporting on any ‘remote’ intrusions (i.e. not addressing the suspicious forensics they found by someone they believed was actually in my house working at the computer.)” And that’s when the investigation hit a wall. “At this point, as their report was sent to higher-ups for approval, they dialed back their communications with me and would not deliver the promised final report or the notes that went with it.” Attkisson said she filed a FOIA to obtain them but it was ignored. Many months went by. “When Congress pressed the issue, the DOJ IG issued only a summary and emphasized there was no evidence of ‘remote’ intrusion in that computer and left out the suspicious forensics they discovered,” explained the investigative super-sleuth. “To this day, the DOJ IG has failed to properly respond to my FOIA requests seeking the full information and report.” As a result, “Many in the media misreported that this DOJ IG report was somehow conclusive evidence that my computers had not been infiltrated.” “In fact,” she clarified, “the DOJ IG didn’t even examine the primary computers in question — referenced in the other exams above— because CBS would not allow them to look at the computers.” Did she think the problem was specific to the previous administration, or was it due the growth of the surveillance community, its powers and lack of oversight? “I think this is an outgrowth of technology that makes such surveillance possible, politicians and corporate interests who are willing to use it for improper purposes, and a weak and conflicted news media that has done little to stop it.” Finally, WND said it would be remiss if it did not ask the ace reporter if her experience had given her any insight into President Trump’s accusations that his campaign had been spied on by the Obama administration. However, Attkisson said she has not looked at, or reported, on those allegations.

SICKO: California State Sen. Richard Pan caught on video LYING about aborted human fetal cell tissue used in vaccines

Sunday, March 12, 2017 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) California state senator Richard Pan just can’t stop lying about vaccines. Two years ago, he was caught blatantly lying about mercury in vaccines, attempting to push the blatantly false, anti-science fiction that mercury is somehow safe to inject into children. Now, he’s been caught on video, falsely claiming that aborted human fetal tissue cell lines are not used in vaccines when even the CDC list them prominently in the excipients (ingredients) lists for multiple vaccines (see list below). Both WI-38 and MRC-5 cell lines are derived from aborted human fetal tissue. The WI-38 cell line is widely known to be “derived from lung tissue of an aborted white (caucasian) female fetus,” as even the pro-vaccine Wikipedia website admits. As the Coriell Institute for Medical Research explains about the MRC-5 cell line / WI-38: The MRC-5 cell line was developed in September 1966 from lung tissue taken from a 14 week fetus aborted for psychiatric reason from a 27 year old physically healthy woman. The cell morphology is fibroblast-like. The karyotype is 46,XY; normal diploid male. Cumulative population doublings to senescence is 42-48. G6PD isoenzyme is type B. The WI-38 / MRC-5 cell lines are used in all the following vaccines, according to the CDC: (see the CDC.gov document at this link to prove it to yourself) Adenovirus - DTaP/IPV/Hib - Hep A - Hep A / Hep BMMR (MMR-II) - MMRV - Rabies - Varicella (chicken pox) - Zoster

Chicken pox vaccine ingredients include “human embryonic lung cell cultures” and “human diploid cell cultures” The chicken pox (Varicella) vaccine, by the way, is listed by the CDC as having the following excipient ingredients which obviously include fetal tissue cell lines: human embryonic lung cell cultures, guinea pig cell cultures, human diploid cell cultures (WI-38), human diploid cell cultures (MRC-5), sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, sodium chloride, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), neomycin, fetal bovine serum

From the CDC document linked above, here’s the relevant section:

Again, see this list for yourself at this CDC.gov link. If the CDC removes it, we’ve saved a copy at this Natural News link. This means that every parent giving their child a chicken pox vaccine is injecting their child with cell lines originally harvested from aborted human fetuses. This is not a debate. This is not a conspiracy theory. This is established, admitted FACT that’s DENIED by vaccine pushers. Isn’t it fascinating how anyone who cites a CDC document and points out that vaccines contain African Green Monkey kidney cells or aborted human fetal tissue cell lines is immediately branded a “conspiracy theorist” even when they are irrefutably, factually correct? That’s the tactic of the lying, dishonest vaccine industry: Fill vaccines with the most grotesque, unclean and disease infested ingredients imaginable, then count on the fact that nobody will believe it when these facts are pointed out. To this day, Richard Pan continues to insist that vaccines contain no harmful mercury and no human fetal tissue cell lines even when the CDC openly admits vaccines are deliberately made with mercury and human fetal tissue cell lines. (See Sen. Richard Pan lying in the video below.) Thus is not a conspiracy theory. It’s a confirmed fact. But it’s a fact that Richard Pan and other medical child molesters refuse to publicly admit to because they know if the truth came out, parents would go berserk over the fact that their children have been injected with abortion harvested human fetal tissue cell lines (and other bizarre ingredients) year after year, all while the vaccine industry has absolute legal immunity from all the damage caused by their defective products. Richard Pan, you are a liar, a medical child abuser and a science denialist As you’ll see in the video below, Richard Pan, whom I’ve dubbed the “mercury joker” villain, blatantly lies about all this, claiming vaccines contain no human fetal tissue cell lines. (He also blatantly lies about mercury in vaccines, but that’s not surprising, given that he’s such a dishonest, despicable human being who seems to take great pleasure in the mass maiming of little children…) H/t to Experimental Vaccines for this video, where Richard Pan is caught blatantly lying by saying: First of all, vaccines are not made from aborted fetal cells. That, unfortunately, is a myth… A couple of the vaccines, Rubella vaccine, there was use of fetal tissue to develop the original Rubella vaccination, but the continuing production of those vaccines do not involve aborted fetal cells. Richard Pan is either medically incompetent or a pathological liar While Richard Pan says vaccines don’t contain aborted fetal cell lines, the CDC says they do. This means Richard Pan is either medically incompetent or a pathological liar. Either way, he is a clear and present danger to the children of California. We already know the answer to this one, by the way: Richard Pan is a pathological liar and a medical child abuse promoter. That’s why he also fled VAXXED documentary cameras when they wanted to ask him a simple question about vaccine ingredients:

Hillary Clinton's team met with Russian ambassador, says Kremlin spokesman, as he warns against 'hysteria'

Harriet Alexander, New York 13 March 2017 • 12:53am

Hillary Clinton’s team members met with the Russian ambassador during the election as well as Donald Trump’s, the Kremlin spokesman has alleged, as he set out to dismiss the “hysteria” surrounding Mr Trump’s links to Russia. The house intelligence committee will hold its first session on Russia on March 20, with the heads of the FBI, national security agency and CIA expected to appear, plus previous intelligence chiefs. But Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary for Vladimir Putin, said on Sunday that America was “self-humiliating” in insisting that Russia hacked its election. And he defended the actions of their ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, whose meeting with Michael Flynn, Mr Trump’s choice of national security adviser, caused Mr Flynn to lose his job. He was fired after just 24 days when it became clear that he had lied about meeting the Russian, and misled the vice president. “This is his job,” said Mr Peskov, speaking on CNN’s Sunday morning politics show. “He was talking about bilateral relations, about what is going on in the United States, so we have a better understanding in Moscow. “This is what happens all around the world.” He said that members of Mrs Clinton’s team had also met with Mr Kislyak, although he did not give specifics. “Well, if you look at some people connected with Hillary Clinton during her campaign, you would probably see that he had lots of meetings of that kind,” he said. “There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.” Mrs Clinton's team is yet to comment on the allegations. But earlier this month Foreign Policy reported that no one from the former secretary of state's campaign met with Mr Kislyak or any other Russian official. The magazine also reported that all the other candidates kept the embassy "at arm's length". And supporters of Mrs Clinton would point out that the problem did not come from meeting the ambassador, but rather failing to disclose it. Mr Peskov said Moscow was upset about the cloud of suspicion. Mr Trump’s administration has been dogged by a continued stream of reports about ties to Russia, which has infuriated the president and energised his opponents. “The fact that Russia is being demonised in that sense comes very strange to us,” said Mr Peskov. “And we are really sorry about that. Because the whole issue takes us away from getting the situation to a better position. “Quite unexpectedly, we were in the position where Russia became, shall we say, a nightmare for the United States. “You are self-humiliating yourself to say that a country can intervene. “America, a huge country – the most powerful country in the world, with very, very stable political traditions – and you say that a country can easily intervene and easily influence your electoral process? This is simply impossible.”

Trump administration | Conflicting views on Russia

Donald Trump, US President

“The countries we are defending must pay for the cost of this defence – and, if not, the US must be prepared to let these countries defend themselves.”

“If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody’s doing really great things?” James Mattis, US Secretary of Defense

“Strengthening our alliances requires […] living up to our treaty obligations. When America gives its work it must mean what it says.” (confirmation hearing)

“There are a decreasing number of areas where we can co-operate, and an increasing number of areas in which we will have to confront Russia. […] The most important thing is that we recognise the reality of what we deal with, with Mr Putin, and we recognise that he is trying to break the North Atlantic Alliance.” Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State

“Russia today poses a danger […] It has invaded Ukraine […] and supported Syrian forces that brutally violate the laws of war. Our NATO allies are right to be alarmed at a resurgent Russia.” (confirmation hearing) Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA

“[Russia] reasserted itself aggressively, invading and occupying Ukraine, threatening Europe, and doing nothing to aid in the destruction and defeat of ISIS.” (confirmation hearing)

He insisted that Russia "has never had, and never will have, any intention to intervene in another country’s affairs".

Asked about whether he expected Mr Trump to lift sanctions, Mr Peskov said that President Vladimir Putin would not raise the issue first. There is no date yet for a meeting, but the pair will both be at the G20 Summit in Hamburg in July. Mr Putin, he said, was pleased that Mr Trump defeated Mrs Clinton, but he insisted that Russia did not intervene. “The candidate Hillary Clinton was quite negative – declaring Russia the main evil, the main threat,” he said. “Whom would you like better – the one that says Russia is evil? Or the one that says yes, we disagree, but let’s find points of agreement?” He said his initial contact with Mr Trump was “quite promising”, but Russia was increasingly disappointed with the response from the Trump administration. “We don’t have a proper understanding of the future,” he said. “We certainly would expect our contacts to be more frequent, more in depth, because we had quite a significant pause. “We were losing potential by blaming everything on Earth on each other. “We do worry. Public opinion – if you load with a huge burden of fake news, fake blaming on Russia, repeat every day numerous times that Russia is interfering, guilty of trying to hack, that everything that goes wrong in the country is the fault of Russia. “We want to see this hysteria coming to its logic end. Better sooner than later.”

It's Time for Congress to Investigate the CIA Hacking Scandal

Written by C. Mitchell Shaw Sunday, 12 March 2017

With WikiLeaks providing hardware and software manufactures with technical details about the hacking tools the CIA developed — and lost — the manufactures are working to plug the holes. While that is happening, there may be the beginnings of a Congressional investigation into the CIA’s hacking activities. Almost as soon as WikiLeaks published a trove of documents and files revealing the size and scope of the CIA’s arsenal of cyber weapons and the fact that the CIA somehow lost control of that arsenal, Representative Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) released a statement saying, “I am deeply disturbed by the allegation that the CIA lost its arsenal of hacking tools.” Lieu, who has a degree in computer science, added: The ramifications could be devastating. I am calling for an immediate congressional investigation. We need to know if the CIA lost control of its hacking tools, who may have those tools, and how do we now protect the privacy of Americans. Since such a congressional investigation would likely be headed by either the House Intelligence committee or the Senate Intelligence committee. Lieu is not alone in his concerns or his willingness to take action. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told the assembled press at a briefing last Tuesday, “These [leaks] appear to be very, very serious." He added, “We are extremely concerned, and we are following it closely." If a congressional investigation had bipartisan support, it could avoid the typical political obstacles that might get in the way. Such an investigation would have the potential to upset the apple-cart of the surveillance state by uncovering wrongdoing within the CIA’s hacking programs. One possibility that the CIA has dismissed is that the agency could be shown to have used its cyber weapons to hack devices belonging to American citizens living in the United States. The CIA recently released a statement saying, in part: It is also important to note that CIA is legally prohibited from conducting electronic surveillance targeting individuals here at home, including our fellow Americans, and CIA does not do so. CIA’s activities are subject to rigorous oversight to ensure that they comply fully with U.S. law and the Constitution. That statement notwithstanding, the reality is that the agency has been accused in the past of hacking the computers and servers of Americans, including those used by a U.S. senator. In March 2014, Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) — who was, at the time the Intelligence Committee chairwoman — accused the CIA of searching the computer she used to store files for her committee’s investigation into the CIA torture program operated under President Bush. In her remarks — made on the floor of the Senate — Feinstein said, “I have grave concerns that the CIA's search may well have violated the separation of powers principle embodied in the United States Constitution.” Later that day, CIA Director John Brennan denied those claims in an appearance at the New World Order oriented Council on Foreign Relations. Brennan said that the CIA “has tried to work as collaboratively as possible with the committee on its report” and that “there have been many things written, and many things said — including, I understand, this morning — about the program, some fact and some pure fiction.” He also told the globalist group, “As far as the allegations of ... CIA hacking into ... Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth. I mean we wouldn't do that," adding that doing so would be “beyond ... the scope of reason in terms of what we would do." One need not be a Feinstein fan to imagine that her claims were probably more truthful that Brennan’s denials. After all, a brief perusal of the documents published last week by WikiLeaks shows that the CIA developed methods for hacking computers, mobile devices, and SmartTVs to turn them into surveillance devices to be used against their owners. As this writer said in a previous article: While the CIA claims that it never uses its investigative tools on American citizens in the United States, one is reminded that the agency doesn’t exactly have a stellar reputation for being truthful. Besides, how many terrorist camps in the Middle East have SmartTVs to watch their favorite programs on? The reality is that these tools are designed to penetrate the very types of devices used by ordinary citizens in Western countries. Given the lack of accountability, lack of honesty, and lack of integrity that are par for the course where the CIA is concerned, the statement by the agency that “CIA’s activities are subject to rigorous oversight to ensure that they comply fully with U.S. law and the Constitution” would be laughable if so much weren’t at stake. Concerned Americans should pressure Congress to investigate the CIA’s hacking programs to determine at least the following:

• Were American citizens living in the United States targeted by those programs?

• How did the CIA lose control of its arsenal of hacking weapons?

• Did the CIA even have the authorization to create that arsenal in the first place?

• If so, who granted such authorization?

• What was the cost of developing and using that arsenal?

• Who had access to the documents and files that comprised that arsenal?

In the absence of such an in-depth investigation, the CIA will simply start over, rebuild its arsenal, and continue in its unaccountable ways.

Trump's Wall Is Already Paid For

By Daniel John Sobieski March 11, 2017

Critics of the border wall proposed by President Trump have said the cost is prohibitive under current budget and economic conditions, that no way is Mexico going to pay for it, and, and shifting funds away from the TSA, Coast GuMA are counterproductive in terms of national security. These criticisms ignore the costs to the U.S. in terms other than money -- increased crime, overtaxed law enforcement, the drain on public resources such as education, medical care, etc., and the driving down of real wages through an endless supply of cheap labor. In fact, thanks in large part to the mere threat of the wall, the sudden enforcement of existing law, and the stripping of funding from sanctuary cities by President Trump, illegal immigration has plummeted by 40 percent in February, a trend that if continued will reduce the costs and burdens of illegal immigration to the point that the benefits of enhanced border security, including the wall, will be more than paid for. As the New York Post noted: The number of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States from Mexico declined by 40 percent from January to February, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said on Wednesday. The downturn came after President Donald Trump took office on Jan. 20 vowing to deport many of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States… He said the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, which compiled the data, historically sees a 10 percent to 20 percent increase in apprehensions of illegal immigrants from January to February… “Since the administration’s implementation of Executive Orders to enforce immigration laws, apprehensions and inadmissible activity is trending toward the lowest monthly total in at least the last five years,” Kelly said. President Trump has shown that border security is not that hard. It merely requires willpower and resolve that puts the impact of illegal immigration on America and its citizens above the impact on the political fortunes of pandering politicians. Now comes a study from the Center for Immigration Studies showing that this ongoing reduction in illegal immigration will reduce related costs to the point the wall is paid for: President Donald Trump’s border wall only needs to stop about 10 percent of illegal crossing in order to pay for itself, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. The estimated $12 to $15 billion cost of the wall would quickly be offset by the savings to the government if fewer illegal immigrants arrive in the country over the next decade, CIS found. Only a small portion of the population of people who are expected to attempt an illegal crossing in the next decade -- between 9 and 12 percent -- would have to be stopped for the wall to totally pay for itself. The analysis from CIS, a group that advocates for moderating immigration levels, relies on fiscal estimates from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NAS) for the average cost to taxpayers of illegal immigrants. NAS estimates one illegal immigrant costs state and local governments approximately $75,000 in a lifetime, taking into account taxes paid and the cost of providing benefits such as education and health care. Critics say the costs of illegal immigration fall largely on state and local governments and it is a federal government burdened with debt that has to write the checks. But the costs in either case are born by the American taxpayer and the American worker. Ask Kate Steinle’s father what the true costs of illegal immigration are and who pays for them. Trump was able to begin immediate construction of the border wall and opening up bidding for contracts thanks to a 2006 measure signed into law by President George W. Bush and supported by Democrats including then-senators Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton. Democrats are already grumbling about Donald Trump’s proposed border wall, though Barack Obama and other leaders in their party voted not so long ago for George W. Bush’s proposal to build a major wall on the border with Mexico. Bush signed the proposal into law in 2006, after it was passed by huge bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate. The law ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to construct about 700 miles of fencing along the southern border, and authorized the addition of lights and cameras and sensors to enhance security. The law explicitly required the wall to be constructed of “at least two layers of reinforced fencing.” Two-thirds of the Republican-led House approved the bill, including 64 Democrats, and 80 of 100 senators approved the bill in the Senate. Then Sens. Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton were among the 26 Democrats who approved the bill. Supporters also included Sen. Chuck Schumer, who is set to take over leadership of the Senate for Democrats in 2016. The Secure Fence Act of 2006 required the construction of 700 miles of new border fence along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. “The Secretary of Homeland Security shall provide for at least two layers of reinforced fencing, the installation of additional physical barriers, roads, lighting, cameras and sensors…” the act said. It was to be modeled on the success of the border barriers in the San Diego sector of the U.S. border. The operative word was “secure.” Instead of this two-layer secure fence what has been built consists of flimsy pedestrian fencing or vehicle fencing consisting of posts people can slither through. The two-tier fence in San Diego runs 14 miles along the border with Tijuana, Mexico. The first layer is a high steel fence, with an inner high anti-climb fence with a no-man’s land in between. It has been amazingly effective. According to a 2005 report by the Congressional Research Service, illegal alien apprehensions in the San Diego sector dropped from 202,000 in 1992 to 9,000 in 2004. Cameras and sensors played a part but the emphasis was on physical barriers and roads that were patrolled by real live border guards, not by robots. Then in 2006 the Democrats took back Congress and, in 2008, the White House. They saw in unrestricted immigration a means to fundamentally transform the demographics of America and its political landscape. A wave of what some called “undocumented Democrats” would be allowed to flood across the border as ICE was told not to enforce the law. Former border state governor Janet Napolitano, who became DHS secretary, reportedly once said: “You show me a 50-foot fence and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder at the border,” The rest, as they say, is history. But the consequences of unrestricted illegal immigration soon became too big to ignore and with a candidate willing to touch the new third rail of American politics, border security, a political movement chanting “build the wall” swept Trump into power. The San Diego fence worked. So will Trump’s wall. Build the Wall.

Man Saves Scraps for Decades to Raise $400K for Children’s Home

by McKinley Corbley - Mar 12, 2017

Johnny Jennings has been saving every penny and scrap of paper so he can help abused and abandoned children – and since he started his endeavor in 1985, he’s raised over $400,000. The 86-year-old earns money by collecting paper, cardboard, and cans for recycling. Over the course of the last 32 years, Jennings has saved 79,000 trees by reselling 9 million pounds of paper. He has also collected $20,000 in pennies, which is equal to about 24 miles of the copper coins. Every dollar that the senior collects, he donates to the Georgia Baptist Home for Children near Ringgold, Georgia. The facility cares for hundreds of children that have been rescued from abusive houses or trafficking rings within the state. MORE: 91-Year-old Has Knit 8,000 Hats For Homeless While in Hospice Care Jennings became devoted to the home after he visited the establishment as an 18-year-old. Touched by its sweet, young residents, he decided to try and dedicate the rest of his life to making sure they would have the financial assistance necessary to prosper. Even though Jennings has suffered two strokes in the last month, he has never failed to make his paper runs around town and deliver the materials to the Chattanooga Recycle Center. “He is the last of a dying breed,” says Shay Drennan-Love, an acquaintance of Jennings. “Our generation and the ones to follow could learn a lot from Mr. Jennings.”

Exclusive: Japan plans to send largest warship to South China Sea, sources say

By Tim Kelly and Nobuhiro Kubo | TOKYO

Japan plans to dispatch its largest warship on a three-month tour through the South China Sea beginning in May, three sources said, in its biggest show of naval force in the region since World War Two. China claims almost all the disputed waters and its growing military presence has fueled concern in Japan and the West, with the United States holding regular air and naval patrols to ensure freedom of navigation. The Izumo helicopter carrier, commissioned only two years ago, will make stops in Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Sri Lanka before joining the Malabar joint naval exercise with Indian and U.S. naval vessels in the Indian Ocean in July. It will return to Japan in August, the sources said. "The aim is to test the capability of the Izumo by sending it out on an extended mission," said one of the sources who have knowledge of the plan. "It will train with the U.S. Navy in the South China Sea," he added, asking not to be identified because he is not authorized to talk to the media. A spokesman for Japan's Maritime Self Defense Force declined to comment. Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Brunei also claim parts of the sea which has rich fishing grounds, oil and gas deposits and through which around $5 trillion of global sea-borne trade passes each year. Japan does not have any claim to the waters, but has a separate maritime dispute with China in the East China Sea. Japan wants to invite Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who has pushed ties with China in recent months as he has criticized the old alliance with the United States, to visit the Izumo when it visits Subic Bay, about 100 km (62 miles) west of Manila, another of the sources said. Asked during a news conference about his view on the warship visit, Duterte said, without elaborating, "I have invited all of them." He added: "It is international passage, the South China Sea is not our territory, but it is part of our entitlement." On whether he would visit the warship at Subic Bay, Duterte said: "If I have time." Japan's flag-flying operation comes as the United States under President Donald Trump appears to be taking a tougher line with China. Washington has criticized China's construction of man-made islands and a build-up of military facilities that it worries could be used to restrict free movement. Beijing in January said it had "irrefutable" sovereignty over the disputed islands after the White House vowed to defend "international territories". The 249 meter-long (816.93 ft) Izumo is as large as Japan's World War Two-era carriers and can operate up to nine helicopters. It resembles the amphibious assault carriers used by U.S. Marines, but lacks their well deck for launching landing craft and other vessels. Japan in recent years, particularly under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, has been stretching the limits of its post-war, pacifist constitution. It has designated the Izumo as a destroyer because the constitution forbids the acquisition of offensive weapons. The vessel, nonetheless, allows Japan to project military power well beyond its territory. Based in Yokosuka, near to Tokyo, which is also home to the U.S. Seventh Fleet's carrier, the Ronald Reagan, the Izumo's primary mission is anti-submarine warfare.

US Redeploys Armored Battalion from Korean DMZ to South of Seoul, Outside of Most DPRK Artillery Range

Post by Navarro » Sun Mar 12, 2017 2:39 pm

"2nd Battalion, 34th Armor Regiment moved their personnel and equipment from Camp Casey in Area 1 to Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek, South Korea. The multi-day move, which started on Feb. 21 and ended March 10, has seen the battalion relocate its armored vehicle systems via railcar while the rest of their wheeled vehicle fleet moved by way of convoy from Casey to Humphreys ... The bilateral agreement, which was signed in October 2014, aims to consolidate U.S. Forces Korea to two enduring hubs south of Seoul in order to enhance readiness, deterrence and defense posture on the peninsula ... commitment to security and deterrence ... USFK units first began moving in July 2016 and the moves will continue until all affected organizations have relocated ... will keep the 210th Field Artillery Brigade in Area 1"

http://www.pacom.mil/Media/News/News-Ar  ... humphreys/  

They reason that that the unit will be out of range of most DPRK artillery fire, should war breakout. The movement might then seem reasonable, but the function of US forces at the DMZ is to deter aggression, not to ever actually "fight tonight," as is the motto of US Forces Korea. This would then imply that USFK no longer sees deterrence as its priority, and is instead primarily concerned with surviving a DPRK attack. Perhaps USFK anticipates a US strike against DPRK, and are consequently redeploying to safer positions in order to survive any DPRK retaliatory artillery and missile barrage. DPRK would undoubtedly in fact retaliate, and the DMZ would be very predictably saturated with shells, rockets and missiles in the opening moments of DPRK's response.

Departure North Korea, destination Hawaii

The linchpin of America’s Western defense remains vulnerable to attack

By Todd Tiahrt - - Sunday, March 12, 2017

ANALYSIS/OPINION: Hidden in the Hawaiian Island experience of aloha, sandy beaches and volcanic mountains is the linchpin of America’s Western defense. Prior to World War II and the attack on Pearl Harbor Hawaii was seen as the geographical sweet spot of the Pacific, key to protecting shipping lanes and much of the world’s economy. After the fateful sneak attack on Dec. 7, 1941 it became even clearer; Hawaii was a paramount defense location for America’s security our enemies were intent on taking out. Today this vibrant vacation destination for many travelers is home to more than 10 military facilities, including United States Pacific Command (USPACOM). Roughly translated in Hawaiian these facilities comprise the “mua liana o ka pale” or “first line of defense” for America’s western flank. Yet they remain vulnerable to some of the most serious threats. From what used to be a remote military hospital, USPACOM watches over half the world’s surface and 36 culturally, economically and geopolitically diverse nations. These countries comprise more than 50 percent of the world’s population, two of the three biggest economies, 9 of the 10 largest ports and the world’s busiest sea lanes. This area is also a heavily militarized region underscored by recent North Korean missile tests. Protecting this defense focal point from all threats must be a priority. With Pacific Command’s assets of hundreds of ships, more than a thousand aircraft, and nearly 380,000 military and civilian personnel the defense of this vacation spot should not be an issue. Yet, with all of these resources Hawaii still remains vulnerable to attack from a backward third world country, North Korea. Hidden from Western eyes and ears a problem festers and no country seems willing to treat the inflamed boil. The unpredictable Kim Jong-un continues to pursue a lethal combination of nuclear capabilities and long-range missiles. According to The New York Times, President Obama warned President Trump as he left office that North Korea would be “the most urgent problem” he would face. Certainly, the problem isn’t even close to going away; more likely, it will only become more inflamed.

Swedish Welfare State Funding Islamic Terrorism

by Chris Tomlinson 12 Mar 2017

A new damning report shows that multiple Islamist fighters who have travelled from Sweden to fight in Syria and Iraq have been the beneficiaries of welfare payments from the Swedish government. The new report created by the by the National Defence University on behalf of the Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA) shows that around 300 Islamists have claimed benefits by using others to give the government the impression that they are still in Sweden despite the fact that they are in Syria or Iraq fighting for jihadist groups, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports. Terrorist researcher and one of the authors of the report Magnus Ranstorp said the problem isn’t just limited to Sweden. Commenting on the results, he said: “it was not surprising, we have seen the same pattern in other countries. Most surprising was that almost all had it in some form. But it is the monitoring that needs to work better. The problem is that there is too little follow-up.” The 300 individuals covered in the report traveled from Sweden to the Middle East between 2013 and 2016, and are thought to have participated in fighting for groups including the terrorist Islamic State. Housing allowances, child support, student loans, maintenance and parental benefits are the most common types of benefits earned by the Islamists, often collected by a third party with the money then sent to them overseas. ” It’s not big money, they do not get rich on it, but it can go a long way in a conflict zone,” Ranstorp said. Police say that student loans, in particular, are an issue because the fighters can game the system by pretending to be going overseas to study and receive large lump sums from the Swedish government. Swedish Minister for Upper Secondary School and Adult Education and Training Anna Ekström said the problem was “totally unacceptable. No state funds will be used for something that is in the vicinity of terrorism. We must take hold of this immediately. We are preparing now to go to the parliament and ensure that the government gets the opportunity to ensure that we do not pay out such large sums at once.” Sweden has seen at least one case in which the government paid a jihadi before. Late last year, Muslim convert Michael Skråmo was revealed to have been paid £4,300 by the government since leaving for the Middle East in 2014. The Swedish government has also essentially legalised the flying of the Islamic State flag after a Swedish court refused to prosecute a man who displayed the symbol on his social media account as a promotion of the terrorist group. In 2015 it was shown that the Swedish city of Gothenburg sent more Islamists to the Middle East per capita than any other city in Europe.

Homeland Security rationing ammo to agents in field

1 of several federal law-enforcement agencies 'reaching critical stage'

Published: 2 days ago

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it possesses a “limited amount” of 9mm bullets for agents in the field as well as for training purposes, and it is rationing its ammunition based on internal requests until it can award a new contract. It is one of several federal law-enforcement agencies that say they are reaching a “critical stage”: Their 9mm ammunition is being depleted and tens of thousands of service handguns are approaching the end of their life-cycle, too. The apparent role poor planning, or another agenda, played in the issue came to light when ICE said it would have run out of 9mm ammo by June 2017 in the absence of a modified contract with its supplier, Vista Outdoor Inc. So, the agency last month approved a $363,307 ceiling increase to contract No. HSCEMS-11-D-00002. The ICE Office of Firearms and Technical Programs, or OFTP, then ordered more ammunition in March, according to a Justification and Approval, or J&A, document that WND located through routine database research. But if it were not for the J&A’s sloppy redactions – the contract ceiling-extension cost, for example, was partly covered by what appeared to be faded black-marker ink, as were references to annual ammunition purchases under the original contract – the public would remain further in the dark about this questionable acquisition process. The biblical mandate for armed self-defense – especially in church! Get “Shooting Back” today! And if it had not been for this partially readable document – which was approved by Lowell Johnson, OFTP Supervisory Engineer-Ballistics Laboratory – taxpayers would have remained unaware that no record exists to prove that this procurement was ever opened to competition in the first place. An exhaustive search of the database – which included multiple keyword and archive-record searches – produced zero results for solicitations or calls for bids that should have preceded ICE’s awarding of a contract for 9mm bullets in September 2011. Though unrelated to the ammunition acquisition, the agency during the same month it awarded the $4.9 million ammunition contract did not fail, however, to post information about a Media Monitoring Services award worth $25,000 that it gave to a vendor named TV Eyes. This pattern of unexplainable – indeed, unjustifiable – redactions and omissions reflects a nearly DHS-wide pattern of secrecy that WND recently uncovered specific to no-bid, non-competitive contracts. DHS’s failure to adequately answer questions about that pattern – and its failure thus far to respond to WND’s follow-up inquiry – once again raise this question: What is DHS hiding? 9mm electronic trail What remains particularly unclear is why ICE failed to prepare for this purported ammunition depletion sooner than it did. According to the partial record, the agency as early as Sept. 29, 2011 – the start of the original base-year contract – knew it would be legally obligated to open the process once again to competition within five years. But the supposed depletion of its 9mm ammunition stores nonetheless arrived, even though – before that initial year ended – the agency identified a need for more 9mm ammunition and swiftly approved a J&A to raise the contract ceiling. The recent admission of a shortage: etc.

It vaguely attributed the necessity of that increase to “unforeseen changes in policy,” offering no details about which changes to which policies had taken place. ICE subsequently exercised all four option years through Sept. 28, 2016, each year purchasing 2,950 additional cases of Speer 9mm Luger +P (124 grain jacketed hollow-point) duty ammunition. Prior to the end of this five-year period of performance, or POP, the agency exercised an “Option to Extend Services,” stretching the POP from Sept. 28, 2016, to March 29, 2017, via contract amendment No. P00012. ICE then bought another 1,475 cases of the ammunition. Last month, a separate J&A was approved to raise the cost ceiling once again. Despite its long-term anticipation of the contract’s end date – and in spite of the agency’s repeated extensions and cost-ceiling expansions – the agency now emphatically claims competitive bidding, at this time, is out of the question. Engaging in such an open competition would prevent ICE, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, or CBP, and the Federal Protective Service, or FPS, from complying with firearms-proficiency requirements and from performing their law enforcement duties, the J&A said. (A service agreement enables FPS – which provides armed security to various federal buildings and facilities – and CBP to buy ammunition through the ICE procurement process.) Despite the recent redaction of the initial and overall contract’s cost, the agency in 2012 had already uploaded notification of what it labeled as a contract award for nearly $4.9 million. However, in light of that document sharing an identical amendment number (P00002) with the latest J&A document, the notice clearly was mislabeled as an award notice rather than as a J&A. Though ICE apparently launched the 9mm ammunition procurement in 2011, a gap remains in the digital trail that otherwise would have shown when and how the process began. The missing and redacted documents, therefore, keep this process away from the reach of full public access and potential scrutiny. DHS: New questions In light of this incomplete record, WND posed the following questions via email to the DHS press office: 1) If these assessments by the agencies are accurate, why has DHS allowed this situation with firearms and ammunition to reach such a “critical stage”? 2) Is the mission of these agencies being thwarted because of weapons and ammunition issues? 3) Specific to solicitation No. 192112NFU0000345 in the ICE contract award, there is no available evidence that this procurement was ever subject to competitive bidding before the first contract was awarded in 2011; if this acquisition was not made through the competitive bidding process, why not? What is the justification? If this was simply a matter of failing to upload the solicitation, call for bids, or request for quotations to FedBizOpps, please provide me with the relevant document, which currently is not available through FBO. Next steps ICE has since deemed Vista Outdoors as a qualified vendor in the continue provision of these supplies to OFTP. The agency said in the J&A that Vista has a demonstrated record of performing its duties “at a satisfactory level” as the company currently ships 9mm ammunition worldwide to various DHS component locations. In the meantime, however, “there is an insufficient volume available on hand (both in the field and with OFTP),” ICE claimed in the J&A, acknowledging that ICE facilities are required to have, at a minimum, a quarter year of ammo in their vaults. ICE cannot substitute weapons and ammunition by using other caliber handguns in its arsenal. Indeed, the agency additionally justified the continued no-bid contract and ceiling increase by noting it has “insufficient .40 caliber handguns available to replace the 9mm handguns that are currently in service, so that is not a viable option.” Though ICE may not have enough of other handguns available to substitute 9mm firearms in the event the agency runs out of that ammunition, the agency apparently does not – and likely will not – face such a shortage of .40 caliber bullets. The Winchester division of Olin Corp. has begun providing – according to ICE’s own estimates – up to 50 million rounds of .40 caliber training ammunition. Even though the agency awarded Winchester a contract with a value “not to exceed $50 million,” ICE in the Sept. 11, 2014, contract award explicitly pointed out that the “estimated total procurement will be 50,000,000 rounds per year for a total of 250,000,000 rounds.” ICE and OFTP said in the recent J&A that they are conducting market research and already have contacted ammunition providers in anticipation of issuing another call for bids for 9mm ammunition. They expect to award an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract in FY 2017. Old guns CBP separately is scrambling to replace “52,000 handguns currently in service,” the majority which “are nearing the end of the expected life span for a handgun,” the agency said in a recently updated Request for Information, or RFI, via Solicitation no. 20094778. CBP’s Law Enforcement Safety and Compliance Directorate, however, “has no available contract to replace or replenish these aging handguns.” The agency said it recently began performing market research in order to formulate the best approach to acquiring new weapons. This assessment of “potential handgun technologies and production capacity of U.S. handgun manufacturers” has been taking place since Jan. 31, which it established as the deadline for responses to the official RFI, initially released in December. Though CBP made clear it would not award contracts as a result of the RFI, the agency estimated that eventually it could purchase 30,000 to 70,000 handguns, including service weapons as well as non-firing training models and “virtual simulator” guns. In addition to contacting DHS for a statement, WND also contacted the National Border Patrol Council, or NBPC, to elicit comment on whether the age of the handguns – and the absence of a contract to replace them – was an impediment to agents carrying out their duties. A call to Shawn Moran, NBPC vice president-media relations, thus far has gone unreturned.

Winter storm Stella to hit 50 MILLION people across the Northeast: Residents are warned to expect travel chaos, power outages and up to TWO FEET of snow on Monday night and into Tuesday

Winter Storm Stella is headed to the Northeast with possible blizzard conditions starting on Monday

Forecasters on Sunday put the US East Coast from New York City to Boston on blizzard watch

Winter storm watch was in effect across the Northeast in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New England

About 50 million people came under winter storm or blizzard watches as of Sunday evening

The blizzard could bring the season's biggest snowstorm with up to 24 inches in New York City

Thousands of flight cancellations expected at JFK, Newark Liberty, La Guardia and Logan International airports

By Clemence Michallon For Dailymail.com and Reuters and Associated Press Published: 15:11 EDT, 12 March 2017 | Updated: 06:12 EDT, 13 March 2017

About 50 million people found themselves under blizzard or winter storm warnings on Sunday as the Northeast braced itself for winter's last hurrah. Winter Storm Stella is expected to sweep the New York region starting Monday with possible blizzard conditions. It could bring the season's biggest snowstorm and dump up to 24 inches across parts of New York and New Jersey. New Yorkers began stocking up on groceries, salt and emergency supplies as they prepared for a snow day inside. The National Weather Service issued a blizzard watch Sunday for coastal regions including New York City and surrounding areas of Long Island, Westchester County and Connecticut. A winter storm watch was in effect for a larger area of the Northeast: New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New England. WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN THE WINTER STORM HITS Air travel Air travel will be disrupted, with more than 1,500 flights grounded ahead of the storm. Airlines had already canceled more than 725 flights on Monday and 815 more for Tuesday due to the upcoming severe weather, USA Today reported. More cancellations were expected, with Southwest planning to stop almost all of its Northeast flights Tuesday. Other airlines were considering similar moves. Major US airlines will allow ticketed travelers affected by the storm to change their flights without an additional fee. Public transportation A meteorologist predicted travel chaos in the New York area once the storm begins. 'Traveling on Tuesday is going to be a no go, to be honest with you,' meteorologist Tom Kines told the New York Post. 'All travel, by land or air, is going to be a problem. If you have a choice of staying home on Tuesday, I would chose to stay home.'

If you have a choice of staying home on Tuesday, I would chose to stay home.' The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was installing hundreds of pieces of snow equipment at the three New York area airports, including snow melters that can liquefy up to 500 tons of snow per hours and plows that can clear snow at 40 mph. Thousands of tons of salt and sand were prepared for airport roads, parking lots, bridges and tunnels. The New York City Department of Sanitation is taking similar action and also notifying additional workers to supplement staff if needed. Once the nor'easter hits, motorists in New York state can call 511 or access www.511ny.org  to check on road conditions and transit information. Road closures New York Governor Andrew Cuomo warned commuters against road closures, delays and cancellations. 'I encourage all New Yorkers in affected regions to plan ahead, and avoid any unnecessary travel as the storm progresses,' he said in a statement. Trains Amtrak, which operates the Northeast corridor, hadn't announced any delays as of the early hours of Monday morning. Travelers can check https://twitter.com/amtraknec  for updates. School closures No school closures had been announced officially in New York City as of Sunday night, although they were deemed likely on Tuesday and possibly Wednesday, WTOP wrote. New Jersey schools also seemed likely to be affected as some of them have experienced closures or delayed opening due to snow in recent days. Forecasters warned of the potential for 12 to 18 inches of snow and wind blasts in some areas from Monday night into Wednesday as they put the US East Coast from New York City to Boston on a blizzard watch. Up to two feet of snow could fall in the New York area. New York City issued a snow alert for Monday night, preparing its fleet of snow plows. The first snow is expected in the city late Monday or just after midnight Tuesday, with up to 4 inches falling by dawn. Heavy snow the rest of the day could pile 10 to 14 inches more of white stuff, with sustained winds of about 30 mph and wind gusts of up to 50 mph. 'This would certainly be the biggest snowstorm of the 2017 winter season in New York City,' said Faye Barthold, a weather service meteorologist based on Long Island. New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo announced preparations for the so-called Nor'easter storm, activating the state Emergency Operations Center as of Monday night while also directing state agencies to be on heightened alert. 'I encourage all New Yorkers in affected regions to plan ahead, and avoid any unnecessary travel as the storm progresses,' Cuomo said in a statement, adding that commuters should expect road closures, delays and cancellations.

March 12, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

Earlier this month, Jordan, the second most water-poor country in the world, ordered more rainfall through cloud-seeding to help alleviate water shortages. Jordan’s cloud-seeding experiment followed after Russia, which last year ordered the rain to fall earlier in order to guarantee a dry day for parades and celebrations. Around the same time as Russia was manipulating its weather, California’s Tahoe Basin, desperate for extra snow for the coming ski season, ordered, well, more snow. From Pacific Standard Magazine In the new story over at Foot's Forecast out of State College, Pennsylvania they warn that 'something wicked this way comes' to parts of the mid-Atlantic through New England as a late winter blizzard takes aim at nearly 50 million people. Expected to strike all of the major population hubs along the East coast from Washington DC to Baltimore to Philadelphia and up to New York city and Boston, a winter that has brought little to no snow to our nation's capitol in Washington DC is expected to pack a wallop there over the next several days, beginning late Monday night. As Wikipedia reports, the 'Northeast megalopolis' was home to more than 49 million people back in the year 2000 and is expected to grow to more than 58 million by 2025. With 17% of the US population on less than 2% of the nation's land area, the Northeast megalopolis preparing to be pummeled by Winter Storm Stella is the very definition of high population density with 931.3 people per square mile compared to a national average of 80.5 per square mile As the map seen above shows us, the Washington DC - Baltimore region is quite literally 'in the bullseye', expected to receive at least 2.0" total liquid projection - an amount that could bring 12 to 18" or more to much of the Maryland suburbs and even more up into New York and New England. Knowing that an inch of snow often brings the DC area to a standstill, what might up to or more than 18" do? Expect that the stores there will be cleaned out by Monday afternoon. Expected to bring along with it blizzard force winds, this massive storm is just the latest bizarre weather hitting much of the US this Winter with some of the same areas basking in temperatures of nearly 70 degrees only a week ago. And as we learn below, every day we're getting more and more indications that 'weather modification' or 'weather warfare' may be playing a major roll in the bizarre weather that we have been getting across America lately. Are large parts of America including Washington DC and the East coast now under a weather warfare attack? And might China somehow be involved? This September of 2016 story from Pravda is called "China Ready To Launch Weather Warfare?" within which they report China was only a stones throw away. As we see by looking over at the Tropical Tidbits GFS numerical model prediction website, the massive storm coming this week may be followed by another snowstorm to the mid-Atlantic and parts of New England by next weekend. For snow lovers upset that the snow never arrived this year, the month of March may bring their panacea. You can see next weekend's forecast for Sunday March 19th in the screenshot from Tropical Tidbits above. We've previously reported several times about the bizarre weather all across America during the winter of 2016/2017 while sharing the evidence with you that we may be witnessing full-scale weather modification or 'weather warfare', and while the mainstream media as a whole will call weather modification 'fake news', every day we get more proof that people across the world are awakening to what Steve Quayle warned us of years ago. The March 1st story from Fox News Tech reports that in the future, drones could be used for cloud seeding to make it rain and scientists in Nevada are now testing the technology. This Fox News report alone should silence anyone still calling weather modification 'fake news' or 'tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theory'. From Nevada: Drones are used for aerial photography, surveillance, news coverage, and rescue operations. Now a group of scientists and researchers are figuring out if drones can make it rain. The science is called cloud seeding, and it is being tested in Nevada at an FAA site, four hours north of Las Vegas. Seeding clouds involves releasing flares of silver iodide from a plane's wing to generate more ice particles in a cloud. This aims to help a cloud’s ability to produce and enhance precipitation. The weather conditions need to be right for this to take place--cloud cover and even the presence of storms are optimal. The process has been around for decades and usually involves a piloted aircraft flying into a storm. Now, The Nevada Institute of Autonomous Systems in conjunction with the Desert Research Institute has conducted tests with unmanned drones. They hope to have drones conduct cloud seeding flights in the future. The Governor of Nevada's office has helped fund the project. The recent story over at Futurism called "China's New 'Weather-Controlling Tech' Could Make It Rain On Demand" and it confirms this earlier report on ANP that China is controlling the weather and can make it rain. As we reported back on January 25th of 2017, China's recent announcement that they will make it rain over an area twice the size of France was bombshell, official confirmation that the 'conspiracy theorists' were right all along. We reported then: Warned of by Steve Quayle many years ago in his book "Weather Wars & Un-Natural Disasters", those who've ridiculed should be eating crow now. With China announcing they will make it rain over an area twice the size of France, proving to the world once and for all that weather modification does indeed exist, we remind you that Quayle warned of this long ago, stating: “Technology will make available, to the leaders of the major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of security forces need be appraised… Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm.” In this new story from The Daily Journal of Fergus Falls, Minnesota the author courageously asks if propaganda is behind the mainstream media. Our author asks us to read the Fargo Forum for the first week of December 2016 and a story that reports upon a pilot who recently died and his plane owned by a company called "Weather Modification Inc." "Who is paying, who authorized and what purpose or results are companies like this having on climate change? Why is the mainstream media not questioning? Maybe propaganda?" our author asks, questions we'll never see the MSM address. And great questions according to this recent story from The Pacific Standard which asks "Geoengineering: A Dangerous Tool or Climate Control of the Future?" Reporting that earlier in the month of February, the nation of Jordan ORDERED MORE RAINFALL via cloud seeding technology, they also report that California recently 'ordered more snow' as well to help their ski season. And what recently happened to California? Is there anybody still out there who doesn't believe that 'man can modify the weather'? If so, these next three paragraphs from the Pacific Standard story may leave you stupified if they don't 'awaken you'.: Earlier this month, Jordan, the second most water-poor country in the world, ordered more rainfall through cloud-seeding to help alleviate water shortages. Jordan’s cloud-seeding experiment followed after Russia, which last year ordered the rain to fall earlier in order to guarantee a dry day for parades and celebrations. Around the same time as Russia was manipulating its weather, California’s Tahoe Basin, desperate for extra snow for the coming ski season, ordered, well, more snow. Cloud-seeding geoengineering, in use for more than 75 years to produce rain and snow, is a technological approach to manipulate the weather and climate. In the process of cloud-seeding or weather modification, silver iodide, potassium iodide, or solid carbon dioxide is shot into clouds by rockets, sprayed into clouds by drones or aircraft, or burned in generators atop mountains. Once inside the cloud, the chemicals freeze to create ice crystals, which turn to rain or snow that falls to the ground. In the United States, cloud-seeding has been used for drought relief, snowfall, and rainfall across the western portion of the country. In 2015, cloud-seeding reportedly produced a 34 percent increase in the length of rainfall in Texas. These artificial rain storms allegedly covered 42 percent more land area, and the rain output was 137 percent more and produced 120,885 acre-feet of rain at a cost of less than $11 per acre-foot. In the first video below, Dane Wigington from the Geoengineering Watch gives us his latest geoengineering global alert in his March 11th of 2017 update. Warning us of the dangers of secrecy in a free and open society, why has the mainstream media failed us so by calling weather modification 'conspiracy theory' for so many decades? In the 2nd video below we get a time lapse video of the bread in a New Jersey supermarket being wiped out in these hours before the storm hits. And with Stella preparing to slam the East coast, putting 50 million in the line of fire, in the final video below we hear Pastor Paul Begley breaking down for us this beast now bearing down upon the East coast. For those who still don't believe in weather modification, even after all of the proof we've been getting lately, please check out this website which will happily sell you weather modification equipment from China.

Extreme winds wreak havoc in Newfoundland and Labrador

Posted by TW on March 13, 2017

Hurricane-force winds wreaked havoc in the Canadian most easterly province of Newfoundland and Labrador on Saturday, March 11, 2017, downing power lines, damaging homes and tipping over cars. It was the fiercest storm the province has seen in more than 10 years, officials said. The storm produced wind speeds of up to 180 km/h (112 mph) at its peak, causing significant power outages and damage to property. The authorities urged drivers to avoid all non-emergency travel and to clear off the roads while emergency crews deal with the damage. Environment Canada meteorologist Wanda Batten said peak wind speeds in some areas broke records previously held by hurricane Igor in 2010. "It was the strongest storm we've seen in more than a decade," she said Saturday. "It blew through three-quarters of the island." The extreme winds on the back of the low brought extensive damage to much of eastern Newfoundland,” the government said. “Reports of damage include: power outages, tipped over trucks and trailers, siding and shingles ripped from buildings. In extreme cases, sheds, roofs, and the top floor to some houses were blown away.” Powerful winds grounded flights at St. John's International Airport, wreaking havoc on travel plans as the airport measured winds of up to 158 km/h (98 mph), the equivalent of a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Ferry crossings in the region were also canceled and several roads closed due to white-out conditions. In a statement released Sunday night, March 12, authorities at St. John’s International Airport said that the airport has sustained significant damage to its facilities. An electrical component in the Airport’s Terminal Electrical room was damaged, resulting in no electrical feed entering the Terminal Building. "The Terminal Building is presently operating under backup emergency power provided by two emergency generators as well as reduced normal power. The Airport Authority is reviewing all options to have heat and key operational systems restored as soon as possible," it said. At the height of the storm, some 70 000 customers were without power, Newfoundland Power said. No serious injuries have been reported.

KOREA SUICIDE Donald Trump set to send B-52 NUCLEAR BOMBERS to South Korea after North fires missiles at Japan and US warns of ‘overwhelming’ response

Secretary of Defence James Mattis said the US "remains steadfast in its commitment" to the defence of its allies

By Jon Lockett 9th March 2017, 1:10 pm Updated: 10th March 2017, 11:04 am

DONALD Trump is reportedly planning to send nuclear bombers to the Korean peninsula as tensions in the region reach breaking point. North Korea and the US have been teetering on the brink of war for months after Kim Jong-un carried out a series of controversial missile launches. Earlier this week, trigger-happy Kim pushed his luck once more when he fired off four ballistic missiles into the seas near Japan. Now US military chiefs are reportedly planning to fly in B-1 and B-52 bombers – built to carry nuclear bombs – to show America has had enough, according to the Korea Times. South Korea and the US have also started their annual Foal Eagle military exercise sending a strong warning to North Korea over its actions. A military official said 300,000 South Korean troops and 15,000 US personnel are taking part in the operation. Secretary of Defence James Mattis said the US “remains steadfast in its commitment” to the defence of the South, according to Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt Jeff Davis. Capt David said: “He further emphasised that any attack on the United States or its allies will be defeated and any use of nuclear weapons will be met with a response that is effective and overwhelming.” Washington is reportedly expected to deploy a series of strategic assets from the US as well as from military bases in Guam and Japan, reports the Daily Mail. The USS Carl Vinson, a Nimitz-class supercarrier, will join the Foal Eagle exercise after departing from San Diego. The nuke-powered aircraft carrier will carry dozens of fighter jets, early warning aircraft and anti-sub craft. It will be accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain (CG-57) and two Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers. From the US Marine Corps in Japan, F-35B stealth fighters will be deployed to the peninsula for the first time. "An F-35B is capable of evading anti-aircraft radar and making preemptive strikes," a military official said. North Korea repeatedly protests that both Foal Eagle and Key Resolve are rehearsals for invasion. Pyongyang's Korea Central News Agency reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has stressed "a need for preparation for a fight". He listed guidelines to strike South Korea and the US "mercilessly".

Trump Busts 1,500 Pedophiles — Media Keeps Silent

News: US News, Commentary by Bradley Eli, M.Div., Ma.Th. • ChurchMilitant.com • March 8, 2017

"It's not talked about enough. ... And we're going to talk about it" The mainstream media (MSM) has kept silent as President Donald Trump in his first two months of office has overseen the arrests of more than 1,500 pedophiles, almost four times more than the 400 pedophiles arrested under President Obama in all of 2014. Recent arrest reports show that more than 1,500 sexual predators were busted for their involvement in child sex-trafficking rings in the United States since January 20, the day Donald Trump was inaugurated. A joint report by the Department of Justice and FBI reveals that for the entire year 2014, President Obama oversaw only 400 similar arrests. Many people are taking note of these facts and asking why a so-called "objective" MSM is so selective in its reporting policies. It's no coincidence that child sex-trafficking rings are under such attack by the Trump administration. On October 8, 2012, Trump tweeted, "Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents — fast trial, death penalty." [ Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts.] Tweet

At a press conference on human trafficking in the White House on February 23, Trump laid down the law: "I want to make it clear today that my administration will focus on ending the absolutely horrific practice of human trafficking. ... A lot of you have been dealing with the federal government and it's been much more focused over the last four weeks — I can tell you that." "It's not talked about enough," he continued. "And we're going to talk about it, and we're going to bring it out into the open and hopefully we're going to do a great deal to help prevent some of the horrific — really horrific — crimes that are taking place." The MSM refuses to report on President Trump's war on pedophiles and on child sex-trafficking rings in spite of the recent avalanche of arrests which include the following:

Jan. 27: 42 arrested in a human trafficking operation in Tennessee

Jan. 29: 474 arrested in California (28 sexually-exploited children were rescued)

Jan. 18 to Feb 5: 108 arrested in Illinois sex-trafficking sting

Jan. up until Super Bowl Sunday: 178 arrested in Texas sex-trafficking sting

Jan: 16 arrested in Michigan for sex trafficking during the Detroit Auto Show

Feb: 11 arrested in Virginia child-sex sting

Feb. 14: 42 arrested in Florida child pornography related cases

The supposedly "unbiased" MSM has no qualms about quickly reporting on every sex abuse scandal involving the Catholic Church. The liberal media's ever-changing morality towards the grave evils of pederasty and pedophilia, however, has caused some journalists to question whether their tears are real or fake.

Obama DOJ Failed to Stop Mexican Cartel Murder of ICE Agent with Smuggled Guns

MARCH 07, 2017

The Obama administration had numerous opportunities to arrest Mexican drug and weapons traffickers before murdering a federal U.S. agent and seriously wounding his partner but opted for the hands-off approach, a new federal audit reveals. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which operates under the Department of Justice (DOJ), should have stopped the traffickers—members of the Los Zetas organization—long before the Immigration and Customs (ICE) agents were ambushed in Mexico with firearms smuggled south of the border thanks to a once-secret Obama administration gun-running operation. Instead, on February 15, 2011, ICE agents Victor Avila and Jaime Zapata were assaulted while returning to Mexico City from Matehuala, Mexico in their government-issued armored sports utility vehicle. Both agents were on assignment in Mexico and their SUV displayed diplomatic license plates. After passing through a toll booth on Mexican Route 57 in the early afternoon the agents noticed that two vehicles were following them, one of which passed and blocked the agents’ SUV from the front, forcing it to stop. Approximately eight assailants approached the SUV armed with various firearms, including assault weapons (AK-47s and AR-1Ss) and handguns. Two of the assailants gained access to the interior of the SUV through a partially open window and shot Zapata and Avila. Zapata died and Avila was seriously wounded. Authorities determined that members of the renowned drug trafficking organization Los Zetas carried out the attack with weapons that had been purchased in Texas as part of a scandalous Obama administration operation that that allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. The whole thing blew up when federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona. In this case the buyers, Otilio Osorio and his brother, Ranferi Osorio, had long been on the ATF radar for trafficking guns to Mexico. In fact, more than a year before the ICE agents were attacked the ATF witnessed the Osorio brothers “complete a transfer of 40 firearms” to Mexico, according to a report issued this month by the DOJ Inspector General. “There clearly was probable cause to arrest both Osorio brothers,” the report states after ATF witnessed the Osorios complete a transfer of more than three dozen firearms on November 9, 2010. Even when ATF agents found guns that they were legally entitled to seize at the Osorio brothers’ house in Lancaster, Texas they didn’t. Two of those weapons were later found at crime scenes in Mexico, the DOJ watchdog writes in its report. “Overall we found numerous problems with ATF’s assimilation of information concerning the Osorio brothers…and the timeliness of ATF’s response to mounting evidence that they were committing firearms offenses,” the report states. “We determined the ATF’s Dallas Field Division had collected sufficient facts to investigate further before Otilio Osorio purchased the gun used in the Mexico ambush.” The report identifies firearms that are most popular among Mexican drug cartels; “These include powerful long arms with high capacity ammunition clips. Examples are the Barrett .SO caliber rifle, AK-47 type rifles, and AR-1S type rifles. The firearms purchased by Otilio Osorio and Riendfliesh both were variants of the AK-47 (a Draco 7.62 caliber pistol and a WASR-10 7.62 caliber semi-automatic rifle).” Judicial Watch was a leader in investigating the Obama administration’s illegal Mexican gun-running operation and filed several lawsuits in federal court to uncover details. Known as Fast and Furious, the scandalous secret program was masterminded by the DOJ and implemented by the ATF under the leadership of Obama Attorney General Eric Holder. The weapons have been implicated in hundreds of crimes in both Mexico and the U.S., the records show. They also document how high-level officials of the Obama administration covered up the scandal and that the former president abused his office by asserting executive privilege to keep Fast and Furious records from going public. Obama even exerted executive privilege for Holder’s wife and mother to conceal emails with the then Attorney General involving the operation.

Assange Says Wikileaks Will Share Details Of CIA Hacking Tools With Tech Companies

by Staff Writer 9 · Published March 9, 2017

On Thursday, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said that tech companies will be given access to more detailed information about the CIA hacking techniques so that they can “develop fixes” before Wikileaks continues to publish the confidential information. On Tuesday, Wikileaks released thousands of confidential CIA documents which detail techniques that the agency uses to spy on citizens through personal technology. Televisions, smartphones, and Internet-connected devices are all subjected to being hacked by the CIA to listen, track and spy on their owners. If you have tips you want American Military News to investigate please email tips@americanmilitarynews.com. Your identity will be protected. “Wikileaks has a lot more information on what has been going on with the cyberweapons program,” Assange said. “And so, I want to announce today that after considering what we think is the best way to proceed and hearing these calls from some of the manufacturers, we have decided to work with them to give them some exclusive access to the additional technical details we have so that fixes can be developed and pushed out so people can be secured.” “Once this material is effectively disarmed by us by removing critical components, we will publish additional details about what has been occuring,” he continued.

Former NSA Whistleblower: "Trump Is Absolutely Right, Everything Was Being Monitored"

by Tyler Durden Mar 8, 2017 5:13 AM

Legendary NSA whistleblower William Binney (and creator of NSA's global surveillance system) confirmed to Fox News, that President Trump is "absolutely right" to claim he was wiretapped and monitored... he was. As we noted previously, Binney is the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees, the 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker, who mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”). Binney is the real McCoy. Binney resigned from NSA shortly after the U.S. approach to intelligence changed following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He "became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he had helped develop -- nicknamed ThinThread -- were being used to spy on Americans," PBS reported. On Monday he came to the defense of the president, whose allegations on social media over the weekend that outgoing President Barack Obama tapped his phones during the 2016 campaign have rankled Washington. "I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored," Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday. Everyone's conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said. Binney also told Sean Hannity's radio show earlier Monday, "I think the FISA court's basically totally irrelevant." The judges on the FISA court are "not even concerned, nor are they involved in any way with the Executive Order 12333 collection," Binney said during the radio interview. "That's all done outside of the courts. And outside of the Congress." Binney also told Fox the laws that fall under the FISA court's jurisdiction are "simply out there for show" and "trying to show that the government is following the law, and being looked at and overseen by the Senate and House intelligence committees and the courts." "That's not the main collection program for NSA," Binney said. What Binney did not delve into, however, was if Obama directed surveillance on Trump for political purposes during the campaign, a core accusation of Trump's. But Binney did say events such as publication of details of private calls between President Trump and the Australian prime minister, as well as with the Mexican president, are evidence the intelligence community is playing hardball with the White House. "I think that's what happened here," Binney told Fox. "The evidence of the conversation of the president of the U.S., President Trump, and the [prime minister] of Australia and the president of Mexico. Releasing those conversations. Those are conversations that are picked up by the FAIRVIEW program, primarily, by NSA." Since Binney designed the NSA's electronic surveillance system, he would know.

The most shocking revelation from the CIA spying scandal

March 8, 2017 by Simon Black

It happened again– another spying scandal in the Land of the Free. Yesterday Wikileaks released 8,761 CIA documents detailing the agency’s hacking of smart phones, routers, computers, and even televisions. These files reveal that the CIA can and has hacked devices that were supposedly secure– iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. The documents further reveal that the CIA is deliberately infecting personal computers with spyware, including Windows, Mac OS/X, Solaris, Linux, and other operating systems. They’re also hacking WiFi routers to deploy software that monitors Internet activity, and have even figured out how to bypass anti-virus software so that their spyware cannot be detected. They’ve also managed to make the rest of the world believe that Russian hackers, not the CIA, are behind all this malware and spyware. It’s like a restatement of that old Mission: Impossible line– “Should any of your IM force be caught or killed… we’ll blame Russia.” The CIA is pretty shameless about its activities, nicknaming its various hacking programs “Assassin”, “Medusa”, and “Brutal Kangaroo”. One of the deepest revelations is that the agency is able to hack Internet-connected televisions, including Samsung smart TVs, through a program called “Weeping Angel”. Basically the CIA can turn your TV into a listening device, recording conversations in the room and transmitting the audio to a CIA server. Even if you think the TV is off, it’s not. CIA hackers have been able to spoof the on/off display and set the television to a “false off” mode. Bottom line, no device that’s connected to the outside world is truly safe. And future Wikileaks publications may show that the intelligence community is hacking home automation devices, Internet-connected automobiles (including driverless vehicles), and artificial intelligence like Amazon’s Alexa. It’s hard to be shocked at this point that the government is spying on its own allies and citizens. This is just the latest in a pattern of brazen surveillance and flagrant Constitutional violations on the part of the US intelligence community. But that’s precisely what I find MOST concerning– the LACK of concern over these new CIA documents.

Prosecute Obama and his 'shadow government'

Exclusive: Erik Rush urges Trump to ignore tradition of leaving ex-presidents alone

Published: 2 days ago

There once was a convention among American presidents wherein chief executives refrained from disparaging their predecessors, even if there was known enmity between them; this pertained to immediate predecessors in particular. This sort of criticism was considered gauche, if nothing else, and it just wasn’t done. That convention was retired the moment Barack Hussein Obama took office in 2009. The first few years of his dismal excuse for a presidency consisted of innumerable instances of Obama deflecting every challenge, cynical query, or deficiency on his part with blame for the administration of George W. Bush. Obama’s “socialist mop” comment of October 2009 was one of his more notable complaints in this area. Historically, former American presidents also refrained from establishing political infrastructures dedicated to sabotaging their successors and illicitly maintaining power. Last week, President Donald Trump accused former President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 election season. Whether or not this actually occurred, it is certainly in keeping with the sort of machinations we’ve seen on the part of the Obama cabal. During the 2016 campaign season, we saw operatives from both the Obama camp and Hillary Clinton’s campaign engage in all manner of disruptive activities aimed at delegitimizing Donald Trump, including tactics mirroring those used by German fascists and communists in the 1930s. In recent weeks, a “shadow government” consisting of Obama surrogates who have worked to the detriment of the Trump administration has come to dominate discussions in alternative media venues. In a sense, it has been almost amusing to hear Democratic lawmakers and prominent liberals flood press venues over the last month with calls for Trump’s impeachment and cries against totalitarianism considering their lack of concern for the abject criminality, serial treason and war crimes committed by the president they sustained for eight years. In context however, their histrionics and those of the establishment press in its support of this propaganda ought not be a complete surprise given the manifest evil of the players involved and the fact that progressives have been at this game for 100 years. Yet the stark contrast between the hard-nosed businessman who played fair and won and those pampered socialist elites who caused the damage the businessman received a mandate to fix remains. There once was another convention among American presidents wherein chief executives refrained from prosecuting the actions taken by their predecessors whilst in office, whether minor misfeasance or suspected high crimes and misdemeanors. Arguably, there have been outgoing administrations worthy of having their actions and policies scrutinized and perhaps even criminally prosecuted, but between the arduous work involved, the appearance of pettiness and the specter of all outgoing administrations potentially facing the intense legal inquiry of incoming administrations, it’s something that just wasn’t done. Perhaps it is time for the Trump administration to re-evaluate this convention. If the aforementioned criminality, treason and other crimes committed by the Obama administration aren’t enough, one could argue that the direct orchestrated hostilities against the Trump administration – for which there are prosecutable statutes – is more than sufficient justification for a strong response, if not outright retaliation. In getting to the bottom of this unfortunate wiretapping issue as well as the program of contrived hostilities against his administration, President Trump might appoint a Special Prosecutor to look into these as well as other activities in which Obama, his surrogates and support organizations were engaged since he took office in 2009. Such an individual would certainly have his hands full for the balance of Trump’s presidency, particularly if his mandate was to investigate issues like the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal and former Attorney General Eric Holder’s associated contempt of Congress charge; the trillion-dollar stimulus scam and money laundering to the benefit of unions, far-left and Islamist organizations; the militarization of government agencies (such as the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative nonprofits at the same time Obama’s own terrorist-connected brother had his nonprofit application personally fast-tracked for approval by none other than IRS official Lois Lerner); the unconstitutional aspects of Obamacare and the shady political machinations attendant to passing the health-care law; the harassment of and domestic spying on journalists and private citizens (for which there is documented evidence); the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. compound at Benghazi, Libya, for which the Obama administration spun a wholly fictitious cover-up when evidence suggested that the entire event may have been either orchestrated or sanctioned by the Obama White House; clandestine U.S. involvement in the civil war in Ukraine; U.S. involvement in the rise of the terrorist group ISIS and the facilitation of Islamist aggression in the Middle East theater; NSA spying on American citizens and our allies; the VA scandal; the super-shady Iran nuclear deal and ransom payment; the GSA scandal; taxpayer billions gifted to Solyndra and other green energy failures; and finally, the issue of Barack Obama’s identity and eligibility to serve as president, and measures that were taken to obscure related facts from the American people. Yes, I know that this would be unprecedented, as well as opening that nasty can of worms called Attempting to Destroy the Legacy of America’s Historic First Black President, but I think that Trump is tough enough and clever enough to pull it off. Given his administrative character to date, I believe the ensuing revelations of the scope of Obama’s crimes would provide sufficient justification to the American people for pursuing this course of action.

New identified faultline in California could create monster earthquake two new scientific studies say

By Strange Sounds - Mar 9, 2017

The stress is building up along the San Andreas and a large earthquake is inevitable.

Two new scientific publications corroborate this apocalyptical scenario: (1) Discovery of a newly identified fault line that could unleash a magnitude-7.4 earthquake in the region, (2) South California is already long overdue for a ‘Big One’ along the infamous San Andreas fault. The concerns are detailed in separate studies that put the quake risks of the USA’s most populous state into much sharper focus. The newly identified fault line is capable of a powerful quake that would impact 20 million residents of Los Angeles and San Diego, according to a study published Tuesday. The fault runs underwater from San Diego Bay to Seal Beach in Orange County and on land through the Los Angeles basin. In the meantime, areas north of Los Angeles may be long overdue for a ‘Big One’ along a portion of the San Andreas fault, according to a second study. Over the past 1,200 years, large earthquakes occurred there about every 100 years. Newly identified fault In the first study, the newly identified fault line is mostly offshore but never more than four miles from the San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles County coast. Even a high magnitude-5 to a low magnitude-6 quake can still have a major impact on those regions, which are some of the most densely populated in California. The fault, officially known as the Newport-Inglewood/Rose Canyon fault zone, caused a 6.4-magnitude quake in Long Beach, Calif. that killed 115 people in 1933. About 3 million people lived in the entire Los Angeles metro area at that time. Today, that number is 13 million. The Newport-Inglewood and Rose Canyon faults were considered separate system, but the study found they are actually one continuous fault system. The last ‘Big One’ From the second study we learn that the last ‘Big One’ in southern California was a magnitude-7.7 to 7.9 in 1857 and thus that a major earthquake is way overdue on a 100 mile stretch of the San Andreas Fault from the Antelope Valley to the Tejon Pass and beyond. At that time, the population of the entire state of California was less than 100,000 people. Today, it’s 37 million. The land on each side of that portion of the San Andreas fault has been crushing together at a rate of over 1 inch per year since 1857. This is causing accumulating energy that will be released in a major earthquake, when the land along the fault would move by many feet.

40% of households in Philadelphia can't pay their water bill

America is in the midst of an "invisible water crisis" as the post-war water infrastructure reaches the end of its duty-cycle and cash-strapped public utilities struggle to find the money to rebuild it. In cities like Philadelphia, Atlanta, Seattle, and Detroit, families increasingly find themselves in water debt, and in Detroit, 50,000 households have had their running water cut off because of delinquency. The estimated bill for upgrading the end-of-lifed American urban water infrastructure is $1 trillion. Cities that have tried privatization as a means of pushing the bill onto investors have been shocked by the bills: in Atlanta, the private water provider charges $325.52 a month, which only qualifies as "affordable" if your household income tops $87K. For people already living in poverty — 40 percent of the population in Detroit — any increase in a water cost will strain a family’s finances, said Randy Block, director of the Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network. He and others in the faith community are trying to raise money to help needy residents pay for water. He thinks water should be recognized as a human right in Michigan just as the United Nations General Assembly defined it in 2010. He likened the city shutting off water for delinquent customers to a war on poverty, and he believes similar skirmishes will play out across the country as income inequality grows. “Detroit is the canary in a coal mine,” Block said. Mark Fancher, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan, said unaffordable water has been a “pretty massive problem” in Detroit for 10–15 years. The practical result of shut-offs, he said, is residents relocating. While there are hardship extensions for residents who have fallen behind on their bills but are also suffering from a serious medical condition, according to Fancher, the system could be a lot better: Residents often don’t know about it, or their applications are denied. Other times, they might receive bills for water they didn’t use or not get the bills at all, he said. “The argument has been made that an affordability plan for the city of Detroit would be a really helpful thing for the struggling utility,” Fancher said. “Because even though people who take advantage of it may not be paying full market rate for water, they’ll be paying more than nothing, which will at least bring in some significant amount of money that right now they’re not getting at all.”

Artificial Humans Could Soon Be Grown In Labs After Clone Breakthrough

March 7, 2017 by SkyWatch Editor

Artificial human life could soon be grown from scratch in the lab, after scientists successfully created a mammal embryo using only stem cells. Cambridge University mixed two kinds of mouse stem cells and placed them on a 3D scaffold. After four days of growth in a tank of chemicals designed to mimic conditions inside the womb, the cells formed the structure of a living mouse embryo. The breakthrough has been described as a ‘masterpiece’ in bioengineering, which could eventually allow scientists to grow artificial human embryos in the lab without the need for a sperm or an egg. Growing embryos would help researchers to study the very early stages of human life so they could understand why so many pregnancies fail, but is likely to prove controversial and raise ethical questions about what constitutes human life.

U.S. to host 68-nation meeting on countering Islamic State

Thu Mar 9, 2017 | 3:01pm EST

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will host a 68-nation meeting in Washington this month to discuss the next moves by a coalition fighting Islamic State, the State Department said on Thursday. The March 22-23 meeting of coalition foreign ministers aimed "to accelerate international efforts to defeat ISIS in the remaining areas it holds in Iraq and Syria and maximize pressure on its branches, affiliates, and networks," the State Department said in a statement, using an acronym for Islamic State. The State Department said it would be the first meeting of the full coalition since December 2014, shortly after it was founded. "It's an opportunity for Secretary Tillerson to lay out the challenges that are facing the coalition moving forward," acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. "We all recognize that we have seen progress in defeating ISIS on the ground ... how do we leverage that success? How do we build on that success?" Islamic State has declared a caliphate in Iraq and Syria. It has been losing ground in both countries, with three separate forces, backed by the United States, Turkey and Russia, advancing on its Syrian stronghold of Raqqa. President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Jan. 28 requesting the Pentagon, joint chiefs of staff and other agencies to submit a preliminary plan in 30 days for defeating Islamic State. Toner said details of that plan are still classified, declining to provide further information. He said the meeting would look at how "to augment existing capabilities and processes on the ground." Iraqi forces have advanced deeper into west Mosul, facing stiff resistance from Islamic State militants who have used suicide car bombs and snipers to defend their last major stronghold in Iraq. The Iraqi operation to retake the eastern bank of the city, launched in mid-October with support from the U.S.-led coalition, took more than three months. The offensive to recapture west Mosul began less than three weeks ago. Mosul is the largest city which Islamic State has held. The group has lost most of the cities it captured in northern and western Iraq in 2014 and 2015. There is little doubt Iraqi forces will eventually prevail over the militants, who are outnumbered and overpowered, but even if it loses Mosul, Islamic State is expected to revert to their insurgent tactics of old. On Wednesday, bomb blasts ripped through a wedding party near Tikrit, which was recaptured by Iraqi forces in 2015, killing more than 20 people.

Newly identified fault line in California could unleash monster earthquake

Doyle Rice , USA TODAY Published 2:56 p.m. ET March 8, 2017 | Updated 24 hours ago

Southern California could be in for some serious shaking. Scientists uncovered a newly identified fault line that could unleash a magnitude-7.4 earthquake in the region, which other researchers say is already long overdue for a whopper of a temblor along the infamous San Andreas fault. The concerns are detailed in separate studies that put the quake risks of the USA's most populous state into much sharper focus. The newly identified fault line is capable of a powerful quake that would impact 20 million residents of Los Angeles and San Diego, according to a study published Tuesday. The fault runs underwater from San Diego Bay to Seal Beach in Orange County and on land through the Los Angeles basin, researchers found. In the meantime, areas north of Los Angeles may be long overdue for a whopper of a quake along a portion of the San Andreas fault, according to a second study, this from the U.S. Geological Survey. Over the past 1,200 years, large earthquakes occurred there about every 100 years. The last big one there was a magnitude-7.7 to 7.9 in 1857. At that time, the population of the entire state of California was less than 100,000 people. Today, it's 37 million. Most of the earliest quakes "appear to be quite large," between magnitude-7.0 and magnitude-7.5, said study lead author Kate Scharer of the USGS. The land on each side of that portion of the San Andreas fault has been crushing together at a rate of over 1 inch per year since 1857, the researchers told the Los Angeles Times. This is causing accumulating energy that will be released in a major earthquake, when the land along the fault would move by many feet. In the first study, the newly identified fault line is mostly offshore but never more than four miles from the San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles County coast, said study lead author Valerie Sahakian, formerly of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and now with the U.S. Geological Survey. Even a high magnitude-5 to a low magnitude-6 quake "can still have a major impact on those regions, which are some of the most densely populated in California,” she said. The fault, officially known as the Newport-Inglewood/Rose Canyon fault zone, caused a 6.4-magnitude quake in Long Beach, Calif. that killed 115 people in 1933. About 3 million people lived in the entire Los Angeles metro area at that time. Today, that number is 13 million.

Idaho boy credits 'angels' for helping him save his father's life

Wednesday, March 8th 2017, 12:44 pm EST Wednesday, March 8th 2017, 4:01 pm EST

By WMCActionNews5.com Staff

(WMC) - A boy from Idaho received an award for saving his father's life. East Idaho News reports J.T. Parker, 8, freed his father from underneath a Toyota Prius on July 30. Parker's father got trapped under the car when it fell off the jack holding it up. His son then jumped into action. Parker, who weighs about 50 pounds, moved the jack and started jumping on it. After about 15 minutes, he was able to free his father. Days later, Parker's family tried to get him to jack the car up again, but he was not able to do it. When asked by an East Idaho News reporter why he thought he was able to do it when he father was trapped under the car, Parker responded: "Angels." Months later, Parker was one of 11 people to receive the 2017 East Idaho Real Heroes award.

Baby Jessica 30 Years Later: ‘My Life Is a Miracle’

By Darla Higgins•@djatlas Posted on March 8, 2017 at 9:00am EST

Millions of Americans remember when Texas 18-month-old Jessica McClure was rescued from a backyard well after being trapped for nearly 60 hours — but the center of attention herself has no recollection of the harrowing event. Now 30, Jessica McClure Morales — who still answers to “Baby Jessica” from friends and strangers in her hometown of Midland, Texas — understands why so many people across the country became invested in her survival in October of 1987. “I had God on my side that day,” Jessica says in the upcoming issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. “My life is a miracle.” Television viewers watched as hundreds of paramedics, rescuers, drilling experts and contractors feverishly worked to save the baby’s life. Meanwhile, they were reassured when they heard Jessica singing “Winnie the Pooh” from deep in the well. As long as she was singing, she was still alive. Jessica McClure Morales Julian Dufort • For more on Baby Jessica’s harrowing tale of survival, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday. These days, Jessica and her family – husband Danny, 43, and children Simon, 9, and Sheyenne, 7 — enjoy a quiet life together. Jessica works as a special-education teacher’s aide at the local elementary school, while Danny is a foreman at a pipe supply company. She has few visible signs of the ordeal three decades ago, during which she went without food or water. But her right foot, which is noticeably smaller than her left, had to be reconstructed because it became gangrenous after it was above her head during the entire episode. A scar on her forehead, sustained when she fell asleep in the well as drilling commenced, is scarcely visible. • Tune in to People Icons: Heroes & Survivors on Tuesday, March 14, at 10 p.m. ET on ABC for more on these and other inspiring stories. While some have assumed that Jessica became wealthy as an adult, thanks to a trust fund set up by people from all over who watched the rescue unfold, she says much of the $1.2 million in the trust disappeared during a stock market dive in 2008. Much of the remaining funds went toward buying the family’s modest house, which features a large backyard for the kids. “I think it’s amazing that people would come together like that to donate money to a child that was not theirs,” she says of the generosity of strangers. “I appreciate everything they did.” Her own children are old enough now to understand what happened to her and have Googled scenes of the amazing rescue. Jessica says she hopes they learn from her rescue “to always be humble. And to remember that if you look hard enough, there are so many good people in this world.” Jessica, who says she never expected to be remembered 30 years after the rescue, tries to make sure her children don’t feel stuck in her shadow. “To me they’re so much more,” she says. “And can be so much more.”

Weekly Islamic call to prayer in Texas public high school

March 7, 2017 By Victor Skinner

FRISCO, Texas – There’s a special space for Muslim students at Liberty High School – room C112 — an empty classroom provided by the school for daily prayer sessions. School officials initially opened up a small conference room for Islamic prayers in 2009 after they noticed some Muslim students leaving on Friday afternoons to pray, and demand eventually forced them to dedicate an entire classroom for the ritual. “This is my seventh year at Liberty, my first year it kind of started when a core group of students were leaving campus every Friday for Friday prayer,” principal Scott Warstler told Wingspan, the student site. “Their parents would pick them up, so they may miss an hour and a half to two hours to two and a half hours of school every Friday, so I met with those students and a couple of their parents and suggested if they would be okay if the students were able to lead the prayer at school as a group, and we gave them a space to do that so they didn’t have to be in a car traveling thirty minutes each way on a Friday missing an hour, hour and half, of class.” Islamic Association of Collin County Youth Director Ryan Hillard explained why it’s important for Muslim students to have special access to C122 during lunch time every day. “By praying five times a day, which includes movements such as bowing and prostrating where you actually place your forehead and the tip of your nose on to the floor and also facing a specific direction, not only shows uniformity, in terms of how Muslims pray together and come together for that purpose,” Hilliard said. “But even more importantly it shows that they’re willing to put their entire body and their entire mind and their soul into this act and be able to focus on that moment where they’re able to have this conversation with God, when in many other places they would not be able to do so.” Warstler told Wingspan he’s never received a single complaint about the prayer room. “Like I’ve said, this is the seventh year that we’ve been doing this and we’ve never had one issue. You know we have other religious student groups that meet maybe before school or maybe after school,” Warstler said “As long as it’s student-led, where the students are organizing and running it, we pretty much as a school stay out of that and allow them their freedom to practice their religion.” Warstler’s inclusive and understanding attitude stands in stark contrast to the reaction other school officials in Texas and other states have shown to Christian students attempting to exercise their faith at school. Last fall, officials at O’Donnell High School, in O’Donnell, Texas, rushed to cover up a student painting of the Ten Commandments and an accompanying Bible verse after a single complaint, EAGnews reports. At Patterson Middle School in Killeen, Texas, school officials forced a staffer to censor her “A Charlie Brown Christmas” decorations to remove a reference to “Christ the Lord” shortly before Christmas, though a judge ultimately overruled the school, according to the Killeen Daily Herald. In other places, school officials and teachers have ended Bible studies, lectured students for reading the Bible during free time, and taken other actions to block Christian students. But at Liberty High School, it’s live and let live, Wartstler told KERA Radio. The station played audio of a student reciting the Islamic call to prayer in the classroom. “They’re not out proselytizing,” he said. “They’re not out in the lunch periods trying to gain, you know. They take care of themselves in their group and they accept those that are a part of their group. And honestly, if others wanted to go in and learn and see and experience that, they’re OK with that.” Unlike the general hostility against Christian students in many public schools, Muslim students at Liberty are welcomed, free to recite the Islamic call to prayer in peace, and it’s “really great,” junior Sarah Qureshi told Wingspan. “It gives us a way to pray in a classroom and then go straight back to class,” Qureshi said. “It takes five minutes instead of having to leave school, get in the car, and go with my parents to the actual masjid and then coming back. When I first found out I was really shocked. I think it was a really great opportunity and I was pretty happy for it that we actually get to have this choice to go and to do what we have to do.”

Bird flu found in Tennessee chicken flock on Tyson-contracted farm

Mon Mar 6, 2017 | 6:03pm EST By Jo Winterbottom

A strain of bird flu has been detected in a chicken breeder flock on a Tennessee farm contracted to U.S. food giant Tyson Foods Inc, and the 73,500 birds will be culled to stop the virus from entering the food system, government and company officials said on Sunday. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said this represented the first confirmed case of highly pathogenic H7 avian influenza (HPAI) in commercial poultry in the United States this year. It is the first time HPAI has been found in Tennessee, the state government said. Tyson, the biggest chicken meat producer in the United States, said in a statement it was working with Tennessee and federal officials to contain the virus by euthanizing the birds on the contract farm. MORE FROM REUTERS.COM In 2014 and 2015, during a widespread outbreak of HPAI, the United States killed nearly 50 million birds, mostly egg-laying hens. The losses pushed U.S. egg prices to record highs and prompted trading partners to ban imports of American poultry, even though there was little infection then in the broiler industry. No people were affected in that outbreak, which was primarily of the H5N2 strain. The risk of human infection in poultry outbreaks is low, although in China people have died this winter amid an outbreak of the H7N9 virus in birds. The facility in Tennessee's Lincoln County has been placed under quarantine, along with approximately 30 other poultry farms within a 6.2-mile (10 km) radius of the site, the state said. Other flocks in the quarantined area are being tested, it added. Tyson, the USDA and the state did not name the facility involved. Tyson said that it did not expect disruptions to its chicken business. The USDA should have more information by Monday evening about the particular strain of the virus involved, spokeswoman Donna Karlsons said by email. HPAI bird flu was last found in a commercial turkey flock in Indiana in January 2016. The USDA said it would inform the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and international trading partners of the outbreak. The biggest traditional markets for U.S. chicken meat are Mexico and Canada, which introduced state or regional bans on U.S. broiler exports after the outbreak two years ago, and China, which imposed a national ban. Tennessee's broiler production is too small to rank it in the top five U.S. producing states but it is the third-largest generator of cash receipts in agriculture for the state. In January, the USDA detected bird flu in a wild duck in Montana that appeared to match one of the strains found during the 2014 and 2015 outbreak. The United States stepped up biosecurity measures aimed at preventing the spread of bird flu after the outbreak two years ago. Tyson said precautions being taken include disinfecting all vehicles entering farms and banning all nonessential visitor access to contract farms. In recent months, different strains of bird flu have been confirmed across Asia and in Europe. Authorities have culled millions of birds in affected areas to control the outbreaks. France, which has the largest poultry flock in the European Union, has reported outbreaks of the highly contagious H5N8 bird flu virus. In South Korea, the rapid spread of the H5N6 strain of the virus has led to the country's worst-ever outbreak of bird flu.

Iodine 131 meldown in Halden nuclear reactor in Norway which Media are not covering

A release of Iodine 131 from the Halden nuclear reactor adds to Europes nuclear pollution concerns and the radiation mapping is hiding the spikes of radiation from view. Bellona.org and the NRPA are trying to bring transparency and deal with the situation in a safe manner but the owners of the Thorium reactor (IFE) are doing a “TEPCO”” and protecting their investments instead of considering downwind populations in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. The IFE are risking a Hydrogen explosion (the same issue that happened at the Fukushima nuclear reactor in March 2011, nearly exactly 6 years ago) to protect their PR image and because of greed. I explain the issues and here is the link to the evidence. The secret meltdown in Norway is stepping in Fukushima footsteps! Iodine 131 in Europe again! #IAEA #UNSCEAR

Nine of the ten most dangerous countries in the world for Christians are Muslim

March 4, 2017 3:17 pm By Robert Spencer

Why is this the case, and why is it the case year after year? Might it have something to do with these teachings? “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, and do not forbid what has been forbidden by Allah and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” (Qur’an 9:29) Muhammad said: “Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war…When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them…. If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. (Sahih Muslim 4294) Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Eritrea and Yemen. Trump’s ill-fated travel ban included six of these countries, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Yemen, plus Libya. How racist. “EDITORIAL: Christian persecution keeps getting worse,” The Gazette, March 4, 2017: When President Donald Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network in January he would give Middle East Christians priority refugee status, he was sharply criticized for religious favoritism and prejudice. Even a few high-profile American Christian leaders questioned his judgment. Trump’s executive order on refugees did not mention Christians, but referenced religious “minorities.” That means mostly Christians, Shi’a Muslims and Yazidis. A recent report by Open Door USA, a nonprofit research firm, identifies 2016 as the “worst year” for worldwide Christian persecution since the organization began monitoring human atrocities 25 years ago. “Christians throughout the world continue to risk imprisonment, loss of home and assets, torture, beheadings, rape and even death as a result of their faith,” the report stated. Open Doors documents evidence that says about 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith last year. More than 200,000 experienced religiously motivated violence or persecution. An earlier report by the Italy-based Center for Studies on New Religions also estimated 90,000 Christians were murdered for faith around the world in 2016. Study author Massimo Introvigne called Christians “the most persecuted religious group in the world.” A year ago March 14, Congress passed House Resolution 75 by a unanimous 393-0 vote. The resolution recognizes as “genocide” the persecution of Christians, Yazidis and other religious minorities by ISIS. A week later, then-Secretary of State John Kerry said “Daesh” (ISIS) “is genocidal by self-proclamation, by ideology, and by actions.” This week, Pope Francis released a video asking for prayers for an end to Christian persecution. The pope said Christians are “killed, burned alive, throats slit, and beheaded with barbarous blades amid cowardly silence.” The Open Doors report found North Korea tops the list as the most dangerous places for Christians. Somalia comes in second, followed by Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Eritrea and Yemen. The irrefutable evidence of Christian persecution, mostly at the hands of Muslims, led to outrage last year when data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center revealed only 0.5 percent of 12,587 Syrian refugees admitted to the United States in 2016 were Christian – a total of 68. Sunni Muslims comprised 98.2 percent and Shi’a Muslims totaled only 20, or 0.15 percent. Christians, Yazidis and Shi’a Muslims are victims of what the Obama administration identified as a widespread religious genocide of religious minorities throughout much of the Middle East and Northern Africa by Isis and other Sunni Muslim extremists….

France's Fatal Attraction to Islam

by Giulio Meotti March 4, 2017 at 5:00 am

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10001/france-islam 

Translations of this item: Dutch Instead of fighting to save what is savable, French opinion-makers are already writing the terms of surrender. By hybridizing cultures and rejecting Christianity, France will soon end up not even teaching also Arabic, but only Arabic, and marking Ramadan instead of Easter. Instead of wasting their time trying to organize an "Islam of France", French political leaders, opinion makers and think tanks should look for ways to counter the creeping Islamization of their country. Otherwise, we may soon be seeing not only a "Grand Imam de France", but also lashes and stonings on the Champs Élysées. Two years ago, the rector of the Great Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur, suggested converting empty churches into mosques, to accommodate the growing Muslim community in abandoned Christian sites. Now, many people in France seem to have taken the idea so seriously that a report released by the foundation Terra Nova, France's main think tank that provides ideas to the governing Socialist Party, suggests that in order to integrate Muslims better, French authorities should replace the two public holidays -- Easter Monday and Pentecost Monday -- with an Islamic holiday and, to be ecumenical, a Jewish holiday. Written by Alain Christnacht and Marc-Olivier Padis, the study, "The Emancipation of Islam of France," states: "In order to treat all the denominations equally, it should include two important new holidays, Yom Kippur and Eid el Kebir, with the removal of two Mondays that do not correspond to particular solemnity". Thus, the Catholic Easter and Pentecost can be sacrificed to keep the ever-elusive multicultural "peace". Terra Nova's proposal was rejected by the Episcopal Conference of France, but endorsed by the Union of Islamic Organizations of France, close to the Muslim Brotherhood, which would also like to include the Islamic holidays of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha in the calendar. The idea of replacing the Christian holidays was also sponsored by the Observatory of Secularism, an organ created by President François Hollande to coordinate secularist policies. The Observatory of Secularism also proposed eliminating some Christian holidays to make way for the Islamic, Jewish and secular holidays. "France must replace two Christian holidays to make way for the Yom Kippur and Eid," said Dounia Bouzar, a member of the Observatory. "France is no longer a Catholic country", wrote Frederic Lenoir, editor-in-chief of Le Monde des Religions. The newspaper Le Figaro wondered if Islam can already be considered "France's prime religion." Instead of fighting to save what is savable, French opinion-makers are already writing the terms of surrender. That is the meaning of Terra Nova's proposal. A similar shocking idea came from another think tank, the Montaigne Institute, which provides ideas to another presidential candidate, Emmanuel Macron. In its report, written by Hakim El Karoui, the Montaigne Institute proposed the creation of a "Grand Imam of France", no less, as if Paris and Cairo would have the same historic roots. Macron recently apologized for French colonialism, feeding a defeatist sense of guilt that fuels Islamic extremists in their demands. The Montaigne Institute has also suggested teaching Arabic in public schools. This idea was also sponsored by Jack Lang, president of the Institute of the Arab world, who stated, "the Arab world is part of us". By hybridizing cultures and rejecting Christianity, France will soon end up not even teaching also Arabic, but only Arabic, and Ramadan instead of Easter. If the goal is accommodating Muslims in the French Republic instead of assimilating them, why not ban pork in the schools, avoid sensitive subjects such as the Crusades and the Holocaust, separate men and women in swimming pools, call cartoonists to "responsibility," and allow Islamic veils in the public administration? In fact, all these things are taking place in France today. And the result is not "emancipation," but religious segregation. It is in this Apartheid that Islamic extremists grow and permeate hearts and minds. France's director-general of intelligence, Patrick Calvar, has been clear: "The confrontation is inevitable," he said. There are an estimated 15,000 Salafists among France's seven million Muslims, "whose radical-fundamentalist creed dominates many of the predominantly Muslim housing projects at the edges of cities such as Paris, Nice or Lyon. Their preachers call for a civil war, with all Muslims tasked to wipe out the infidels down the street". The Socialist front-runner for the Presidential elections, Benoit Hamon, to whom the Terra Nova's report was directed, even justified the disappearance of French women from the cafés in Muslim-majority areas: "Historically, in the workers' cafes, there were no women," he said. Instead of wasting their time trying to organize an "Islam of France", French political leaders, opinion-makers and think tanks should look for ways to counter the creeping Islamization of their country. Otherwise we may soon be seeing not only a "Grand Imam de France", but also lashes and stonings on the Champs Élysées. Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, is an Italian journalist and author.

Iran says S-300 air defense system now ‘operational’

Tehran announces it has successfully tested advanced Russian-made system delivered last year, using it to destroy airborne targets

By AFP and Times of Israel staff March 4, 2017, 11:55 am

Iran’s advanced S-300 air defense system, delivered by Russia following a July 2015 nuclear deal after years of delay, is now operational, state television reported on Saturday. Iran had been trying to acquire the system for years to ward off repeated threats by Israel to bomb its nuclear facilities, but Russia had held off delivery in line with UN sanctions imposed over the nuclear program. “The S-300 air defense system has been tested… in the presence of government and military officials,” the television said. It said that the test at a desert base had seen several targets, including a ballistic missile and a drone, intercepted. Air defense commander General Farzad Esmaili told the television that a domestically manufactured air defense system dubbed Bavar 373 which was “more advanced than the S-300” would be tested very soon. “The S-300 is a system that is deadly for our enemies and which makes our skies more secure,” he said. Iran’s activation of the defense system comes amid mounting tensions with the new US administration of President Donald Trump, who imposed sanctions after Iran tested a medium-range ballistic missile in January. The deal to buy the S-300 system was originally signed in 2007 but Russia suspended it in 2010 citing a UN ban on arms sales to Iran. It was revived after the nuclear deal between Iran and major powers went into effect in January last year. In August, state television aired footage of the system being installed around the Fordo nuclear site in a mountain near Qom, south of the capital. The Russian-made missile defense system is one of the most advanced of its kind in the world, offering long-range protection against both aircraft and missiles. Israel had long sought to block the sale, which analysts say could impede a potential Israeli strike on Tehran’s nuclear facilities. Other officials have expressed concern that the systems could reach Syria and Hezbollah, diluting Israel’s regional air supremacy. The Israeli Air Force has trained for a scenario in which it would have to carry out strikes in Syria or Iran on facilities defended by the S-300. In a 2015 interview, IAF commander Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel said the S-300 was a “significant but not insurmountable challenge” for the IAF.

New York Mayor Hides 500,000 Illegals, Vows to Ignore Immigration Laws

by Mona Salama5 Mar 2017

The NYPD won’t cooperate with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents seeking to repatriate illegal immigrants, Mayor Bill de Blasio told RTVi, or Russian Television International. “The NYPD will not participate as immigration enforcement agents because we have, for decades, built a close working relationship with immigrant communities,” de Blasio said. “Our police force is not going to be out there knocking on people’s door and it is not going to share information about people’s documentation status with the federal authorities.” According to de Blasio, who faces reelection in November, more than half a million people in New York are “undocumented” and a “vast majority don’t commit any crimes whatsoever.” City officials city and the NYPD officers will cooperate with the feds only in immigration cases which involve “serious and violent crimes,” he said. “In terms of the City of New York, we said the only area where we cooperate is we have a law that delineates 170 serious and violent crimes. If someone is convicted — not just accused, convicted of those crimes — then we will work with ICE in terms of their deportation.” According to the mayor’s office, ICE has submitted 80 “detainer” requests to the NYPD in 2016. These “detainers” ask local police forces to hold illegals who were arrested for other crimes until they can be transferred to ICE for later repatriation. But only two inmates were transferred to ICE in 2016, and only because federal officials got a warrant or a subpoena from a judge. New York City is among one of the largest U.S. cities that proudly labels itself as a “sanctuary city” for illegal aliens. Roughly 300 cities nationwide try to preserve illegals from deportation, partly because businesses gain from a local population of illegals who serve as cheap employees and as additional consumers. Since President Donald Trump was inaugurated, de Blasio has vowed to oppose any executive order regarding illegal immigration. He is running for re-election this year, has used this hot topic to raise campaign funds outside New York this weekend in Chicago and Florida. “We do not believe the President’s executive order related to immigration is legally clear or consistent,” de Blasio said, downplaying the risk that the city would lose federal funds. “We think it can be challenged effectively in court. If you look at it carefully, the only resources that could be held back, even if it were to pass judicial muster, the only resources that could held back would be from the NYPD, especially for anti-terrorism.” De Blasio added; I think that puts the President’s administration in a box of their own making. They claim they want to force us to change our ways, and their penalty is going to take away anti-terrorism funding that protects the biggest city in America and the number one terror target, I think that will end up being untenable and unacceptable. But in the first instance, nothing has been done to remove our funding so far, and if there ever were an attempt, we would immediately go to court to stop it. de Blasio also tried to blame a recent spike in anti-Semitic vandalism on Trump and his advisors. “[Trump] unleashed these forces and some of the people who are closest to these white supremacist movement, and they are very intolerant of any religion that is not Christian,” de Blasio said. Steve Bannon is an example of a leader of the right-wing that has fostered and supported these kind of movements and certainly given them access to his media platform. If the President wants to draw a clear line, he needs to make explicitly clear that he will not tolerate anti-Semitism, racism, Islamophobia, anti-gay activities. I think it’s necessary to separate from the people, who, unfortunately, like Steve Bannon, have aided and abetted those kind of negative movements and to constantly make clear that he doesn’t want the support of any people like that and he will condemn them. Read the mayor’s complete statement here. The Russian-language interview is here:

Something Very Sinister At Play - Remember! Expert Warned: 'Obama Switched Sides In War On Terror!'

March 5, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way." Franklin D. Roosevelt  While everything in life is not a coincidence and random events unrelated to each other do occur, we try to notice when such patterns as mentioned by President Roosevelt do emerge, patterns such as we recently reported on ANP in the string of deaths of numerous Russian ambassadors within months of each other all across the planet. Happening at the same time that a very real 'witch hunt' is ongoing with Congressional Democrats attempting to burn anything 'Donald Trump' at the stake and interestingly, attempting to tie Trump's success at defeating Hillary Clinton to Russia, many are very concerned the 'deep state war' upon president Trump and attempted coup by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton tied loyalists will lead to a very real 'shooting war' on American soil. As YouTube videographer Colonel Ray Potter tells us in the brand new first video below, a 'breaking point' in America may soon be reached. According to former Attorney General Eric Holder, Barack Obama is seemingly ready for war. Announcing Obama's 'return' with "he's coming, and he's ready to roll", we have to ask, if Barack Obama is truly 'an agent of Islamic terror' as has been argued by many, and he's allowed 8 years worth of 'trojan horse terrorists' to come into America, how long might it be until Colonel Potter's warning of 'war turning hot' on US streets become a reality? Events of this weekend prove to us that Donald Trump backers are very real targets of terror after Trump supporters were attacked in California by left-wing terrorists - are we now witnessing the beginning of a very real attempt by Obama-backed terrorists to take down President Trump and America? We pray that Obama and George Soros' paid terrorists who'd try to take down Trump and America come to their senses before they cross a line they can never uncross. As even President Donald Trump recently tweeted in reference to this 'McCarthyesque witch hunt', Obama is either 'a bad or sick guy'. What if Obama is 'bad' and 'sick' and really hates America, as much as his 8-year-presidency proved, and he's truly willing to do everything in his power to 'take down America' as the globalists 'sickly' dream of doing? REMEMBER! Obama, Senator John McCain, Lindsey Graham and the rest of the Trump-haters such as Nancy Pelosi, Clinton and Obama are PROVEN to be funders of Islamic terrorism!!!! Leaked audio PROVED Obama wanted ISIS to grow - and now he's attempting to sabotage President Trump's goal of 'eradicating them'. As Hawaiian Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard stated in her STOP ARMING TERRORISTS bill in Congress, "Under U.S. law it is illegal for any American to provide money or assistance to al-Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups. If you or I gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail. Yet the U.S. government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of al-Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government.". So why are people such as Clinton, Obama, and McCain still walking free despite arming terrorists who want to slaughter us and have a goal of overthrowing America? And was Obama's support of Islamic terrorism, while moving groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood off of terror watchlists and into the White House, the very 'root' of the 'deep state war' against President Donald Trump? Has America already been so 'completely infiltrated' by radical Islam that the 'enemies within' may be impossible to totally 'root out'? Trump and Americans must remember that during Obama's presidency, "Obama switched sides on the war on terror". We were warned back in 2014 that "America has moved towards its Muslim enemies" and the Obama administration had begun siding with jihadis such as ISIS. Gabbards 'stop arming terrorist' bill is proof of that yet the MSM will still call Obama and Hillary Clinton arming ISIS 'fake news'. As Infowars asked on Saturday, why haven't Senator John McCain's ties to ISIS terrorists been investigated? Were McCain's secretive meetings with ISIS NOT aiding and abetting terrorists and seditious conspiracy? And why does 'the left' prove to us they're in bed with terrorists by allowing a convicted terrorist to organize the next women's march? And are people who might be considered 'collateral damage' in this 'war' now being 'taken out'? Anybody who has been paying attention realizes that the entire Democratic party, and particularly Hillary Clinton, are deeply embroiled in financial scandal and corruption with the Clinton Foundation being much more than just the 'tip of the corruption iceberg'. Anyone who has been paying attention to real world events over the past many years also knows that the Clinton family has a body count that follows them around everywhere they go. Documented in this August 2016 story from WND and continuing to grow during the run-up to the November 2016 election with at least 5 more bodies added to 'the count', some believe the 'Clinton body count' continues to grow to this day. In the story over at the NY Post on March 1st, they reported a 'depressed Wall Street' executive had recently jumped to his death from his 9th floor apartment in New York. 'Depressed' 47-year-old Kevin Bell, a financial company executive, had worked at Arrowgrass Capital Partners and previously at Saba Capital Management, Citadel Investment group, Citigroup and Deutsche Bank before he allegedly killed himself on Wednesday. As the Daily Kos reported back in April of 2016, there are undeniable connections between Hillary Clinton and Deutsche Bank, from whom she took hundreds of thousands of dollars to speak in front of, then lobbied for them, pushing through the Panama Free Trade Treaty which enabled the bank to make huge money in shady deals. On Thursday, the NY Post reported 59-year-old lawyer Kenneth Freeling had also jumped to his death in New York, also from the 9th floor. If this vaguely reminds you of a pattern of mysterious deaths previously reported on ANP of bankers across the planet who suddenly decided to practice high jumps from tall buildings, you aren't the only ones. Freeling had worked for law firm Dewey & LeBouef prior to moving to Covington and Burling in Washington DC. According to this April of 2015 story from Politico, the Clinton Foundation has strong ties to Covington and Burling via "longtime Clinton supporter Stuart Eizenstat, a senior counsel at the powerhouse law firm". As was reported across the alternative media dating back to at least 2014, mysteriously dead bankers were all the rage across the internet back in 2015 and 2016, do mysterious trails of huge numbers of dead bankers lead somewhere? In the 2nd video below we see an hour+ or raw footage out of Berkeley, California while in the 3rd video below, Susan Duclos reports upon the 'so far' failed deep-state coup against Trump with Jeff Sessions now apparently in possession of some very valuable information. In the final two videos below, we hear about the recent deaths of Kevin Bell and Kenneth Freeling, both who 'coincidentally' attempted to fly out of their 9th floor apartments in New York recently.

The Chinese Takeover of California-The Trojan Horse of the CALEXIT Movement

By Dave Hodges

If you want to understand the dymanics of California and how, under Governor Jerry Brown, we are all under threat from the Chinese and their related interests. This is not an easy document to review as one will have to work to absorb massive amounts of documentation which demonstrates how California is being sacrificed, who is behind it and for what reason. I previously reported the following with regard to California’s attempt to become a separate and independent nation under the control of El Presidente, present California governor Jerry Brown. According to Paul Preston, reports are coming in that numerous state legislators from California, including “California Senate pro tem Kevin de Leon), State representatives from Florida, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Colorado have been meeting with members of La Raza, the Mexican government ( consulate), Mexican Mafia (“La EME”), California’s violent Mexican gangs (Nortenos /Sureños/ Sur 13), La Familia (Nuestra Familia) and religious leaders (Catholic / Jesuits) to come up with a plan to separate from the United States the above mentioned states”. Governor Brown, his aides, and the Bank of China have been in attendance in several of these meetings designed to sever California from the US. Further, The Common Sense Show has learned, independent of Paul Preston, that George Soros is bankrolling some of the costs associated with this movement as is the Bank of China. What is significant here is that if CalExit does not happen peacefully, the radical gangsters listed above, will force the California exit through the use of violence. Paul Preston and his sources have learned that many of the abovementioned groups will begin to execute white people and force a mass exodous of this population group from California. This information comes from an embedded eyewitness to many of the meetings. What was not known at the time I published the above passage, is that the United Nations is at the center of this conspiracy. Paul Preston, through his inside informant, we call “Mike”, revealed the brains behind the Calexit movement is actually the United Nations. When California exits the Union, they will be largely controlled by the Chinese, but will be under the political control of the UN with Jerry Brown as their leader. And as you will soon see, that California’s food supply is being handed over to the Chinese. The Chinese Connection to CalExit The Chinese government is in the process of relocating 250,000 people per week from rural farmlands to densely populated urban areas into what has been dubbed as the Chinese ghost towns. Many of us have heard about these Chinese ghost cities. However, until this year we didn’t really know the true purpose of why these ghost cities were being built. However, the veil is being lifted and now it is becoming very obvious as to what the Chinese are up to. Chinese political refugee and Princeton University professor, Cheng Xiaonong, stated in that in lots of places in China, farmers are being forcibly relocated at gun point and forced to relocate to urban areas. Cheng said, “[Party chief] Bo Xilai has been promoting a policy of moving farmers into towns, building apartments and moving forcibly relocated farmers into these stack and pack apartments and treating this as urbanization.” Cheng said urbanization isn’t about calculating how many farmers are relocated into cities, but about farmers being able to move into the city and gaining some measure of sustainable employment and adequate living conditions. These relocated farmers, without the prospect of jobs is a recipe for economic and social disaster. Soon, there will be tens of millions of Chinese totally dependent on government handouts to survive. This is the power that governments strive to obtain because it gives them total control. This Chinese scene is reminiscent of the Agenda 21 inspired movie, Hunger Games. Cheng makes the same observations as many other Chinese experts as he added that “urbanization is generally accompanied by economic growth as was the case in the US. In other countries, urbanization happens naturally, but in mainland China, urbanization is the result of the Chinese regime forcefully pushing farmers off of their land.” Another key globalist, Dominic Barton, the global managing director of McKinsey & CO, and he too sounds like a Paulson clone as recently stated, “The good news is that there is an underlying force of growth and that’s urbanization. What we’re basically seeing is more we than 250,000 people moving from rural areas to cities every week.” George Soros is also a player in this mass migration movement. If job demand is not fueling urbanization, then what is? Since the Chinese are not industrialized to the point which would justify the mass movement of 1 million people per month into its ghost towns, any reasonable person would be asking the question, why? THE CHINESE ARE FACING REBELLION AND POSSIBLE REVOLUTION FROM ITS OUTLYING PROVINCES. THE MOVEMENT OF CHINESE FROM THESE OUTLYING AREAS TO THE GHOST CITIES IS DESIGNED TO PREVENT A REVOLUTION AGAINST THE CHINESE STATUS QUO. HOWEVER, CHINA WILL SOON HAVE A FOOD PRODUCTION PROBLEM IN LIGHT OF THIS MASS MIGRATION. Enter Hank Paulson and Who could forget Hank Paulson, the former Secretary of the Treasury and the former CEO of Goldman Sachs and the author of the bail outs? Paulson is championing the strategy of forced relocation. In relation to Paulson’s observation and encouragement of Chinese urbanization he states, “The country’s economy is heading in the right direction. This is more important than achieving short-term growth.” Paulson went on to say that the economic growth in China has made urbanization a necessary and proper development. Are you kidding me? We have heard from Chinese experts, both inside and outside the country, who claim that economics is not fueling urban growth. Chinese urban growth is being fueled by bayonets and bullets. s the real reason. And this push for increased Chinese industrial output will benefit the globalists. However, what will the Chinese do about the food shortage? China Will Soon Own California’s Food China will soon have a serous food production problem. However, the Chinese government, through relocation is preventing a revolution. Further, the Chinese have positioned themselves, under the auspices of the United Nations to take as much food from California as needed as a meams to offset the loss of food production in the outlying provineces. The California drought, as I have covered before is the product weather manipulation. The artificially contrived California drought combined with an increasing Chinese presence in California will ultimately lead to a complete Chinese takeover of all California’s agricultural farm land. The Chinese military, posed as energy front men at the many solar farms will soon spring into action and seize all major farmland following the completion of CalExit. Chinese soldiers which are present in large numbers at the California Inland Ports (e.g. Sacremento and Stockton) and they are poised to takeover. How is this possible? Enter Dianne Feinstein and her husband Richard Blum. Feinstein entered the Senate as a millionaire and is now a billionaire. Their conflicts of interest are legendary. California and the EPA have enacted policies that drive farmers and ranchers off of their land by the thousands. This exodous of California farmers is being accomplished through the denial of water to ranchers and farmers. Richard Blum is buying up distressed properties and then selliing them back to Chinese interests. In other words, China will control California’s food supply when CALEXIT becomes a reality. The food will be sent back to China as an offset against the loss of farming in the outlying provinces. This will produce catastophic consequences regard food supplies and prices in the near future in the United States. I should note that the globalist desire to destroy the United States takes a big step forward with this plan. To add to the coming misery, I interviewed Paul Martin and he stated that his colleague, Ed Petrowski provided Paul with information that there is an acute national shortage of farmers. Record numbers of farms are being auctioned off. Paul said that Ed told him we are headed for a major famine in the United States. The short Paul Martin interview can be heard here. There is one more major consideration that is under investigation by The Common Sense Show, and that has to do with the Oroville Dam. If the dam, as many predict, does not survive the coming spring runoff, the fertile agriculttural lands between the dam and Sacramento will be temporarily gone along with its farmers and ranchers. The Chinse courtesy of the Feinsteins will buy up this land for pennies on the dollar. People between Oroville and Sacramento need to realize that there is now a political motive to allow the dam to fail. Paramilitary Operations Within the United States I recently reported on paramilitary operation centers being built inside the United states by Spanish speaking foreign workers. I am still investigating but would you be willing to bet that the Bank of China is funding this operation. In 2015, the Chinese control of the Long Beach Port was completed. The deep water port at Long Beach is the only of its type on the West Coast. And this country’s government has GIVEN AWAY the Long Beach deep water port to the Chinese in one of the biggest acts of treason in this country’s history. The giveaway of both the military installation and the deep water port went live in 2015. The Chinese can bring in any type of personnel, undetected, and this means Chinese military and eventually . Along with the paramilitary operations exposed by Judicial Watch and Marlon Brock, Paul Present informed that the Chinese Military is buying up massive amounts of abandoned buildings from which they can bring in their military. Here is the interview with Paul Preston where this is discussed. Conclusion In summary, California is on the path to becoming its own nation controlled by the United Nations. California Governor, Jerry Brown, is leading the way. After CalExit, the UN will assume control over California. The food interests of California will be controlled by the Chinese as America is already facing serious food shortages due to the mass departure of farmers. Further, these developments will go a long way towards handing off control of the California food supply to the Chinese. Most disturbingly, California, under Jerry Brown, will become a base of operation for the Chinese military who will have unrestrained access to California as a staging area for its military. Bit by bit America is being occuped by covert Chinese forces who will not be covert much longer. In a future article, I am going to tie this entire plot back in to the UN and this was foretold 20 years ago.

IBM Patent: A.I. Fact-Checker with In-Call Actionability

By k.Renee - March 5, 2017

File Date (@US Patent Office): January 19, 2017

Patent: 20170019535 Family ID: 57775256 Kind Code: A1

Applicant: International Business Machines (IBM)

Super Easy Explanation:

A system that fact-checks live calls and takes action to “cause change” in any call that is “determined…as false”. [Abstract] Now, to Break It Down a Bit Further: Who’s Involved (initially) :

telecommunicating from & an automatic program, ran on an artificial-intelligencia computing system. What’s Happening : The A.I. system “detects a fact statement made during a conversation” [0024]. It detects “alleged facts” by using NLP (Natural Language Processing) to identify a “defined grammatical construct” and “the presence of one or more keywords”. [0025] “As some non-limiting examples” the system “can be configured to detect statements that include financial terminology…words referring to a location, an institution, an entity, and the like”. [0025]

The A.I. system “initiates a capture of a call segment”, recording the “fact statement”. The capture can retroactively record, including the conversation that occurred “at a time prior” to “wnhen the fact statement was made” [0026]. The call data is pre-processed and converted for fact-checking.

The (call) data can include text, sound, graphical, or video information.” The A.I. “applies different methods to convert…the information.” [0035] The A.I. system then sends that processed data set “for fact-checking…verifying the accuracy of the fact statement by using information from a third-party.” [0030] As an example; call-data from a video transmission could include a text form of the “fact statement”, along with result data from ”sentiment analysis, facial expression analysis, or applied forensics” performed by the A.I. system.[0035] “Voice facts, such as timber or pitch of the voice can assist in verification.”[0037] The text data of the fact statement can be checked against third-party records, like “phone directories” [0038], “company directories” [0039], “financial or credit databases” [0040], “news databases” [0041], or any “social media site” [0055]. The A.I. system receives a “result of the fact checking operation…indicating that the fact statement is accurate, or inaccurate.” [0031]

“If the result indicates that the fact statement is inaccurate”, the A.I. system “takes action” “while the call in progress”. [0032] “Some non-limiting examples of possible actions” the system can take are “terminating the call,…notify the (telecommunication device) user via a haptic interface, or notify a third-party such as law enforcement.” [0032] This IBM A.I. system application “allows” telecommunication devices” to be “operated in a manner that prevents the perpetration of…undesirable activities.”[0045] “If the application determines that the caller or the call has violated the law, the application may notify the appropriate law enforcement agency” [0090], as the A.I. simotaneously “determines whether to continue the call-monitoring”.[0091] So You’re Absolutely Clear on This : IBM…the company that came up with the idea, and the system to number the Jews during the Holocaust…the company that created operating systems, like Linux….the company that created the “Smarter Cities” grid control program in 2008…the company that made the A.I. system that won Jeopardy! against the 74-game champ in 2011…and the A.I. system that beat the world’s chess champion IBM…creator of the first supercomputer..the first personal computer with a standardized platform IBM….who invented ATM’s… IBM has patented a system which monitors calls, using Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing to take statements made during the call and fact-check them against a third-party database. These statements can be made in any transmitted verbal, visual, textual, or graphical data that is communicated between any two devices. Devices include, but are not limited to, phones, laptops, wearable devices, or tablets. The third-party database used to fact-check is configurable. It can be configured to an internal network-server database; it could be Wikipedia; or the Google/Oracle servers in whole; even the entire plethora of institutional recorded familial, educational, employment, legal, financial, and geological recorded data. This fact-checking is made in real-time, through the data network. If any statement made is deemed as “false”, IBM’s system will make a change in the call. These changes include, but are not limited to, ending the call, alerting the device’s user of the danger of “invalid” fact statements, or involving the appropriate legal agencies of the user’s “incorrect” statement, with or without the telecommuter’s knowledge, to arrange for arrest or any other correctional-type action from the alerted agency. This A.I. system can and will decide to continue a user’s communications, to an undefined extent or limitation, for data capture continued for any undefined reason. The A.I. listens and scans all, deciphering all communications between device users; using self-determined emotion-analytics, based on voice patterns, body language, and facial motions made during statements between communicating device users; fact-checking statements on its own terms, against its configuration of decided facts; then empowered to take action during the data transmission between the users. The A.I. can act to get you arrested, put you on an agency’s alert list, or block the user from telecommunicating on that device.

Heads Up! President Trump's 'War' Is 'America's War'! More Evidence Emerges We're Closing In On 'The Breaking Point'

- When It Comes To Totalitarian Surveillance, 'We Are ALL President Donald Trump'!

March 6, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The latest SQAlert on the website of Steve Quayle he calls one of the most important 'heads up financially' that he has ever posted in that it warns of the forthcoming bank plans to go cashless, another last ditch attempt to keep the global bankers goals of a 'boot stamping upon a human face, forever' intact. Warning 'the testing is complete' and a new technology "used to track people, their payments and enforce much higher taxes" is close to being implemented, we take a look within this story at that alert (below videos) and all of the latest signs showing a pivotal 'day of reckoning' is ahead for America. We also focus on a few strategies we believe President Donald Trump and America could take to not only stave off the coming pain but take our nation and our people in an entirely new direction in 2017 and onwards. Make no mistake about it, while the difficulties we face as a nation are momentous, there has never been a greater time than now for America to move upwards and begin again to accomplish the dreams of our forefathers. The challenges we face while walking the razor's edge of course are great - for President Donald Trump being wiretapped by 'the powers that were' shouldn't surprise anybody - they're tapping ALL of our phones in this totalitarian 'police state the globalists who've long been working to take down America have been building in its place. And as Owen Shroyer from Infowars tells us in the 1st video below, that is one reason why President Donald Trump's 'war' is America's 'war'. To borrow a line from a cable TV show, when it comes to totalitarian surveillance, "We are ALL President Donald Trump"! As this new story from Michael Snyder over at the Economic Collapse Blog reports, government spooks could have used the microphones and cameras on Trump's phone EVEN when he thought his phone was turned off - think that America-hating spooks aren't accessing the phone cameras or microphones of everybody in the White House when they want to? And need we wonder any further where SOME of the leaks are coming from? Just a small symptom of the overall problem, as long as govt spooks (aka our shadow govt) think they can 'lord over' even the President of our Republic, the will of the American people has been damned. As Roger L Simon over at PJMedia reports today, "If I were a Democrat, I'd be afraid. I'd be very afraid." We long appreciate the wisdom in the words attributed to former US President Thomas Jefferson who allegedly stated: "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." Yet the problems America faces are much greater than just the totalitarian globalists surveillance state gone amok with President Trump himself a non-willing victim of it. As Snyder also pointed out in this recent story, 11 quotes directly from President Trump's speech proves he knows the US economy is in a massive state of trouble. With 43 million Americans now living in poverty, the middle-class in freefall, 94 million Americans out of the labor force, and one in five people in their prime working years not working, the incredible debt built up over 8 years of Obama financing terrorism across the planet while building mosques worldwide has put our nation in the most danger that we've ever been in, not just financially, with a national debt of nearly $20 TRILLION that is still growing by the second. You can hear that full list of Trump quotes from videographer Realist News in the 2nd video below. What are some of the answers to the problems that we face? While its absolutely true that in a time of the most grave emergency, humans are unable to EAT gold, thus proving why survivalists always recommend buying long-term food storage prior to buying gold when preparing for major emergencies and only purchasing precious metals when an adequate food supply is obtained, returning to a gold-backed US dollar under Trump is what many financial experts believe is absolutely necessary for returning to 'sound money' and a sound economy. President Trump has also spoken of beginning the process of rebuilding the inner cities across America, cities where a huge portion of those now living in poverty reside, and such an absolutely momentous task would not only bring REAL hope and change to areas greatly in need of it but bring jobs, jobs and more jobs to some of the areas that need them most. While there are many areas of revitalization that we hope Trump focuses on in the years ahead, and we'll be sure to discuss more of them in future ANP stories, we also see why it's still so important to prepare for possible dark times ahead. In the 3rd video below and this new story from Natural News we see why its so important for all of us to stock up on food now, just in case of dire emergency's such as what's happening now in Venezuela, which proves how quickly an entire nation can reach its 'breaking point'. As their story tells us, Venezuelans are now separating 'edible trash' from 'nonedible trash' so that scavengers have an easier time finding food. There but for the amazing Grace of God go we. In the final video below we hear from videographer Richie Allen in a video called "If People Understood The Money Supply They'd Be Halfway To Understanding The Overall Conspiracy" within which he breaks down 'the great global banking conspiracy' while sharing with us why we're still closing in on a 'boot stamping upon a human face, forever'. BANKS SET TO GO CASHLESS GOING TO CRASH THE BOND MARKET: ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT HEADS UP FINANCIALLY, I HAVE EVER POSTED - I work IT at one of the highest technical positions in a major telecommunications firm .The only position higher than the one my colleagues or myself holds, is the CIO position. We usually get info way before implementation. There is now a project going on in banks to implement block chain technology. This is very different from past reports as the previous reports were banks testing it out. The testing is complete. Contractual discussions between banks and a big three letter company (helped to create the serial number generators for the Nazis) are underway. The details are more or less related to a typical service. But, still blockchain technology will be used to track people, their payments and enforce much higher taxes. Personally, almost all of my assets are outside of the banking system. I work with banks daily and have hundreds of clients. So, obviously I have some experience to back up my decision.-----------A second note about bank warnings. 1. ECB has put out recent warnings about the volatility in the forex and bond markets. I believe this is a face saving move, so when big losses come, they will say "we told you so". 2. Working with Federal Reserve on a technical project. They are clueless, have no plans, and make decisions that make no sense. Typically organizations run from the top down, so, I wouldn't be surprised if the heads of the Fed are the same. Hard to say if they are malicious or just brain dead. HERE ARE HIS RECOMMENDATIONS AS AN INSIDERS INSIDER 1 - Know that all your transactions can be tracked and are shared between governments. 2 - Gold & Silver are a must. I have used it to pay friends when I didn't want transactions showing up on my bank account. 3 - I like bitcoin. I know some people think this was created by "the elite", but why create bitcoin and leave it there while creating your own independent blockchain tech to back up fiat currency transactions? This tells me it is not elite controlled, at least, not completely. And, there is some anonymity there for privacy concerned people. 4 - Hold cash in small bills. Banks are moving towards a cashless society, no doubt. But, there is a major opinion that they do not want to do away with smaller denominations, at least anytime soon. The ECB has new banknote issuance into 2018 and they have the project teams to back up the news. I keep stacks of 5s, 10s, and 20s. From what we have seen in the recent past, it is always the large denominations that are banned overnight.

Here’s the List: More Than a Dozen Proven Victims of Obama’s Many Wiretaps

Jim Hoft Mar 5th, 2017 9:26 pm Guest post by Joe Hoft

The Main Stream Media and other enemies of the current President are challenging the proposition that President Obama wire tapped President Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential race. President Trump started this discussion with his tweets over the weekend. In his first tweet President Trump tweeted: Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! This is now being referred to as Obamagate! It is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. Here is a list of individuals who were wire tapped by the Obama Administration. WikiLeaks released the following list on February 23rd (see link here) of Obama Administration wire taps: * The US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin; * Obama bugged Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone; * Obama singled out the Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception; * Obama stole sensitive Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu; * Obama intercepted top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed); * Obama explicitly targeted five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers; * Obama explicitly targetted the phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and * Obama intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”. In addition to the above list we also know now that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013: * In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that the Justice Department had investigated the newsgathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks. The reporter, Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked. * Also in 2013, members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance. The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that “In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obama’s reputation.” * Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post. Update – WikiLeaks tweeted overnight that the Obama Administration spied on their journalists as well:

FBI Director Asked DOJ To Publicly Reject Trump Wiretapping Claims

by Tyler Durden Mar 6, 2017 5:32 AM

In the latest dramatic plot twist to emerge from Trump's accusation that Obama wiretapped the Trump Tower prior to the election, the NYT reports that FBI director James Comey asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s allegation that Obama eavesdropped on the soon-to-be president. According to the NYT, which cites 'senior American officials' Comey has argued that the "highly charged claim" is false and must be corrected as there is no evidence to back them up, but the DOJ has not yet released any such statement. In other words, just a few months after Democrats savaged Comey for supposedly attacking Clinton, and even being responsible for the failure of her presidential campaign according to John Podesta, now it is the Republicans' turn to accuse him of turning on Trump. Comey, who made the request on Saturday after Mr. Trump leveled his allegation on Twitter, has been working to get the Justice Department to knock down the claim because it falsely insinuates that the F.B.I. broke the law, the officials said. What is strange is that the FBI is requesting the DOJ to publicly deny Trump's claim when it is the FBI that has the jurisdiction to request a FISA warrant. It is therefore perplexing why Comey, if he wants to put the matter to rest, does not make the public denial himself instead of asking the DOJ to do it on the FBI's behalf. To be sure, as the NYT adds, a statement by the DOJ or by Comey refuting Mr. Trump’s allegations "would be a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement officials in the position of questioning the truthfulness of the government’s top leader" and adds that the situation "underscores the high stakes of what the president and his aides have unleashed by accusing the former president of a conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump’s young administration." Furthermore, it is unclear who at the DOJ would issue such as statement, "even if it wanted to one", as Trump's close ally, AG Jeff Sessions has recused himself from any Trump-Russia investigation. As the NYT points out, "there are few senior politically appointed officials at the Justice Department who can make the decision to release a statement, the officials said. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself on Thursday from all matters related to the federal investigation into connections between Mr. Trump, his associates and Russia." Furthermore, such a public statement would further position the nation's top law enforcement agencies against the Executive Branch. Along with concerns about potential attacks on the bureau’s credibility, senior F.B.I. officials are said to be worried that the notion of a court-approved wiretap will raise the public’s expectations that the federal authorities have significant evidence implicating the Trump campaign in colluding with Russia’s efforts to disrupt the presidential election. That, or raise even greater "worries" about allegations that the Obama administration was seeking to potentially sabotage a presidential candidate with a wiretap over Trump's Russian connections that, as Clapper admitted earlier, has found nothing. In an additional ironic twist, Comey’s behind-the-scenes maneuvering is certain to invite contrasts to his actions last year, when he spoke publicly about the Hillary Clinton email case and disregarded Justice Department entreaties not to. Meanwhile as reported earlier, the White House showed no indication that it would back down from Trump’s claims. On Sunday, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said that the White House has demanded a congressional inquiry into whether Obama had "abused the power" of federal law enforcement agencies prior the 2016 presidential election. In the statement, Trump called “reports” about the wiretapping “very troubling” and said that Congress should examine them as part of its investigations into Russia’s meddling in the election. As reported earlier, according to Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy, Trump was "pissed" about the wiretap story, and said that "when I mentioned Obama “denials” about the wiretaps, he shot back: “This will be investigated, it will all come out. I will be proven right.” It is unclear if the Comey statement would be found evidentiary, and would put the matter to rest or if, as Trump has demanded, a full blown probe into the alleged wiretapping will proceed regardless, especially since as in the case of former DNI director Clapper earlier today, it would be the DOJ's word against that of the president. In case Mr. Comey (or Ms. Lynch) needed a reminder of just what the so-called 'Obamagate' timeline looks like - and where the DoJ was allegedly involved - here is the story so far... 1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied. 2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking. 3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians. 4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services. 5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington. 6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked. 7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information. 8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama’s newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them. Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation. 9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites “four current and former American officials” in reporting that the Trump campaign had “repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is “no evidence” of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks. 10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event and once at a meeting in Sessions’s Senate office. The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions’s testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the “dossier” of ongoing contacts. The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House “rushed to preserve” intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By “preserve” it really means “disseminate”: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies “to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators” and perhaps the media as well.

President Trump has been provided the evidence of a paper trail leading to a FISA court that substantiates his assertions that Obama, obtained authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign under the pretense of a national security investigation

This is as Serious as it Gets

By Doug Hagmann —— Bio and Archives March 7, 2017

There is a large storm brewing over Washington, DC right now – a storm that could dwarf anything ever seen in recent times. It is growing stronger by the hour as new information is being disclosed that strongly suggests that it is possible, even likely, that Obama and his Department of Justice maliciously and criminally misused the FISA process to collect intelligence on Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. Additionally, Obama personally relaxed the limitations on how such information collected could be disseminated in the weeks before leaving office. The political ramifications from this, if proved correct, could be unprecedented in scope. Once fully exposed, it would explain the curious actions of Obama as he prepared to vacate the White House. It would also explain, in context, the actions and statements of not only Barack Hussein Obama, but others in key positions of power including Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, John Brennan, and others within the media. At issue is Obama’s insistence to secure a federal wiretap warrant of Donald J. Trump, the candidate, using the federal court system as the mechanism to do so. The ostensible probable cause was alleged ties between Donald J. Trump and/or his associates with Russia. The first warrant application was made in June 2016, according to reports published by The New York Times and elsewhere, but was rejected due to the lack of probable cause of criminal activity. When the request was denied in regular federal court, Obama and his Justice Department attempted an “end around” by citing the existence of a “foreign actor” and made a similar surveillance warrant application through the more specialized Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in October of 2016. According to published reports, that warrant application was rejected as well, a rare occurrence in the FISA venue, which strengthens claims that no evidence of any foreign involvement ever existed. It has been reported that the initial warrant application to the FISA court specifically named Donald J. Trump. It is also relevant to note here that this is the type of activity that led to the creation of the infamous “Wall” that was referenced after the 9/11 attacks. Its relevance to this specific instance is explained well by former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy in this January 11, 2017 column. Apparently undeterred, the Obama Justice Department submitted yet another application to the FISA court, this time omitting the name of Donald J. Trump and submitting it as a FISA specific case. The FISA court reportedly approved the application under the new and more narrow scope. Specifically, ties to two Russian banks: Russia’s SV bank and Alfa Bank. The alleged target was a computer server reportedly situated inside the Trump Tower. Based on the lack of action consequential to that warrant and wiretap, it has been stated (and can be reasonably determined) that no actionable evidence was found. Shortly before leaving office, Obama expanded the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) as detailed in the unclassified document titled Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the National Security Agency (NSA). As detailed in that document, limitations were changed on what the NSA could do with the information they collected through their surveillance operations. These changes effectively relaxed the restrictions on the dissemination of information collected on private citizens by broadening the access to such information. It is also notable that on January 3, 2017, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed off on rule changes for phone taps. It appears that President Trump has been provided the evidence of a paper trail leading to a FISA court that substantiates his assertions that Barack Hussein Obama, working in concert with others including those wielding the full might and power of various federal agencies, improperly obtained authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign under the pretense of a national security investigation, and continued such monitoring beyond its tenuous scope even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found. This is as serious as it gets.

Newsmax CEO: "I Spoke To Trump About The Wiretap Story, I Haven't Seen Him This Pissed Off In A Long Time"

by Tyler Durden Mar 5, 2017 5:48 PM

While the Sunday talk shows have been largely focused on debunking Trump's allegations that Obama hacked the Trump Tower, a somewhat different perspective into Trump's current state of mind comes from Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy, a close friend of the President, who in an article this morning shares that having spoken to Trump about the wiretapping story, he hasn't "seen Trump so pissed off in a long time." Below are some of the highlights from Ruddy's article posted earlier today: When I woke up Sunday, I thought the morning news shows would all be talking about the unusual, perhaps dangerous, decision of the Obama administration to wiretap the offices of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. I’ve been watching Chuck Todd’s “Meet the Press” as I write this. There is actually little talk about this unprecedented wire-tapping and even less worry over it. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, usually thoughtful, just told Chuck Todd he found it is “shocking” that Trump disclosed the wiretapping claim on Twitter. But Friedman offered no shock that such a wiretap might have taken place! I spoke with the President twice yesterday about the wiretap story. I haven’t seen him this pissed off in a long time. When I mentioned Obama “denials” about the wiretaps, he shot back: “This will be investigated, it will all come out. I will be proven right.” Ruddy then focuses on the semantic denial by Obama that he had not ordered such a wiretap: Today on the "Meet the Press" James Clapper, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, denied any agency that operated under him, including the FBI, ever wiretapped the Trump offices. “To my knowledge,” he added. [Wasn’t Clapper the same man who testified under oath that the NSA never collected phone data on millions of Americans — a fact proven untrue by the Snowden revelations?] But the most important Clapper revelation from “Meet the Press” was this: He emphatically told Todd the Obama intelligence agencies found “no evidence” of collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Russians. Nothing. Nada. If that is true, and Trump is right he was indeed wiretapped, it will only fuel his argument that Obama administration officials improperly eavesdropped on his office. In lieu of a follow-up from Trump as this story progresses, here is what Ruddy thinks are the relevant things to consider in the near future: No one is denying that the Russians outrageously interfered in the U.S. election. Trump says it’s true too. But remember this “act of war” happened under Obama not Trump. Obama did nothing against Putin and the Russians despite having full knowledge of Russian’s active measures at the time they were happening. This wasn’t Trump’s fault. Another sign of the Obama administration’s weakness. The Russian interference, which again I take very seriously, did not change the election result. In fact, an argument could be made it hurt Trump and helped Hillary. Hillary outperformed Obama’s 2012 results in many, many states. For example, she cut Obama’s loss in Texas by half! Hillary’s problem was her campaign did little in the five states that mattered. As Woody Allen once described the secret of success, Trump just “showed up” in those states — and won. Despite Clapper and others saying there is no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the media is continually trying to create such a narrative. For example, stories are proliferating of the Russian ambassador’s contacts with the Trump campaign. But the truth is that campaigns deal all the time with foreign diplomats. There is nothing unusual or illegal here. And considering Trump’s very open declaration he wanted to reset U.S.-Russian relations, these contacts should not be surprising. Lastly, Chuck Schumer and other Democrats calling for a special prosecutor are way, way over the top. The Constitution provides for a “special prosecutor” — it’s called Congress. The Senate Intelligence Committee and other Congressional committees will review these matters soon. If they find serious evidence of wrong doing by the Trump campaign, then they can seek a special prosecutor. As for the markets, the rising concern is that as Trump continues to get weighed down by such domestic policy "smokescreens" as Ruddy calls it, the reality is that the president's economic plans, be it the repeal of Obamacare or his tax policy, are becoming increasingly unlikely to be implemented in the near, and not so near future, and sooner or later the market will have no choice but to notice.

Sessions Has Names Of CIA Intel Leakers - This Is Why Media And Obama Lackies Went After The Attorney General

March 5, 2017 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

While all eyes have been on Trump's assertion that the Obama administration was wire tapping his communications before the election, the legal ramifications, the denials from Obama lackies with the help of the media, something huge fell through the cracks, which explains why the the "dark state" members within the intelligence community rushed to "leak" information on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in the hopes that the media could create such a firestorm that he would resign. Sessions didn't resign he simply recused himself of being part of any investigation or prosecution of "any existing or future investigations of any matter relating in any way to the campaigns for president of the United States." That is a very narrow scope of recusal, especially since there is no proof that the AG's office is even conducting any investigation relating to the campaigns for president of the United States. JEFF SESSIONS HAS THE NAMES OF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY LEAKERS Joseph diGenova, the former U. S. attorney for the District of Columbia under Reagan, has spoken privately to his sources at the CIA who has confirmed that the names of the intelligence officials that have been leaking information to the Washington Post and the New York Times, illegally sharing classified information with the media, have been turned over to the Department of Justice, which is headed by none other than AG Jeff Sessions. CIA officials know who has been leaking classified information to The New York Times and The Washington Post, and the officials have passed that information on to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to a former U.S. attorney for President Ronald Reagan. Joseph diGenova, the former U. S. attorney for the District of Columbia under Reagan, told LifeZette that in private conversations with CIA officials they confirmed they have the names of alleged leakers and have given the names to the U.S. Department of Justice. Sessions and the DOJ are now in possession of the names of some of the leakers, which fully explains why the media rushed to create a narrative by implication, when highlighting meetings Sessions held, while he was still part of the U.S. Senate, with Russian envoys. How would forcing Sessions to resign help those leakers, the media and Obama operatives still holding positions of power? The answer to that ties directly into what ANP reported on Saturday, that Barack Obama attempted to "stack the deck" at the DOJ, by quietly removing Dana Boente from the line of succession in the DOJ hieracrchy, which would have put U.S. attorneys in the District of Columbia, the Northern District of Illinois and the Central District of California, in the direct line of succession. As we highlighted yesterday, "The man Obama placed at the head of the line of succession is D.C.'s U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips, who is quite cozy with President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder." Via Lifezette: The New York Times revealed in a report Wednesday that President Obama’s staffers left bread crumbs for anyone looking to undermine the Trump administration throughout the federal government. The revelation by The Times indicates how a steady drip of embarrassing leaks has tormented the new administration of President Donald Trump. On Wednesday night, The Washington Post reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had met the Russian ambassador twice in 2016. Sessions was then the junior U.S. senator from Alabama. So, the CIA hands over the names of the leakers to the DOJ, meaning Sessions now has the names of those to build a case and possibly prosecute for leaking classified information, and what does the "deep state" Obama hold-overs immediately do? Leak information on Sessions, in an attempt to force him to resign, so that an Obama operative would be in charge of prosecuting, or more importantly, not prosecuting other Obama operatives. Or so they thought....... Unknown to Democrats and even the media, Trump quietly signed the order to put Boente back in the line of succession. Boente is now the Acting Deputy Attorney General and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. Not only does Sessions narrow scope of recusal leave him fully in charge of any investigation into the leaks, but even had the campaign against Sessions forced him to step down, it wouldn't be the person Obama hand picked to be in a position to help the intelligence leakers, but it would be someone willing to prosecute said leakers to fullest extent of the law, after building a case against them. OBAMA ADMIN ORCHESTRATED SESSIONS MEETING WITH RUSSIA AMBASSADOR One of the meetings "leaked" to the press about Sessions meeting with the Russian ambassador, to which Democrats started screaming collusion and started demanding Sessions resign, was sponsored by the Obama justice department in July 2016.

Breitbart reports: The two-day event was hosted by a civic organization, Global Cleveland, whose website cites the state department’s role: On Tuesday, July 19, Global Cleveland welcomed roughly 80 international ambassadors to its Global Partners in Diplomacy reception at Severance Hall. The event, coordinated in partnership with the 2016 Republican National Convention and the U.S. Department of State, introduced the ambassadors to nearly 200 of Northeast Ohio’s civic and corporate leaders. BOTTOM LINE SUMMARY In summary: The Obama administration left "bread crumbs" for his loyal operatives to undermine Trump, using those crumbs to "leak" classified information to outlets like the Washington Post and the New York Times. Obama also tried to stack the deck at the DOJ so that if said operatives were caught, or their names were handed over to the DOJ, someone very friendly to the Obama agenda would be in charge of whether to prosecute them or not after forcing Sessions to resign. The outcome: Sessions didn't resign, and any case that ends up at the DOJ, if any do, that concerns the presidential campaigns, his recusal statement deliberately listed Boente's name as the person that would be in charge of those cases, not the person Obama tried to insert. Exit point: Now you have Sessions, who just survived an orchestrated plan to attempt to force his ouster as AG, in possession of the names of the people that tried to force him to resign. Anyone else think that those Obama operatives that have been leaking classified information are about to have a very bad year.... or twenty to life?

Two Hamas Positions Destroyed Following Shooting Attack

By Jewish Press News Briefs - 5 Adar 5777 – March 2, 2017

An IDF unit running normal operations alongside the northern Gaza border came under fire around 2:30 PM on Thursday. No one was injured in the attack, but signs of bullet fire were found on their vehicle. In response, the IDF, using the Air Force and a tank, obliterated two Hamas military positions in Gaza. The IDF holds Hamas responsible for any and all terror attacks emanating from within the Gaza Strip. Defense Minister Liberman, responding to the question as to why Israel didn’t response to the rocket attack against Israel last night said that the IDF doesn’t need to dance to Hamas’s tune and automatically react every time Hamas does something. He then blamed Hamas for the suffering of Gaza’s citizens.

Israeli official to Hamas: We know of your cooperation with ISIS In Sinai

By Anna Ahronheim March 2, 2017 19:31

Maj. Gen Yoav Mordechai takes to Facebook to bash cooperation between terror groups. COGAT’s Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai told Hamas on Thursday that the IDF is well aware of its cooperation with Islamic State in Sinai. “Hamas leaders: Your efforts to hide your cooperation with Islamic State’s smuggling from Sinai, through lies and manipulation in attempts to broadcast ‘business as usual’ with Egypt, are not hidden from our view,” the head of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories unit wrote in Arabic on Facebook. According to Mordechai, Bilal Brahma, a Salafist- linked Hamas member and top smuggler with Sinai Province, the Islamic State group in Sinai, was reported by Hamas to have been killed in the restive peninsula. But despite Hamas setting up a mourning tent for him, he is alive and receiving a salary from Hamas’s “military” wing, Izzadin Kassam, while being treated in a hospital in Gaza by Jihad Cahlut, who is supposedly responsible for contact with ISIS terrorists in Sinai, according to Mordechai. “Hamas is brazenly lying to its neighbors and to Egypt, which works to destroy tunnel infrastructures; this comes one week before representatives of the terrorist organization will make an expedition to Egypt,” he said. “Hamas’s senior delegation may want to consult with Bilal to know which tunnels are best for crossing from Gaza to Egypt and save the time waiting in Rafah.” Israel has a 240-km. border with Sinai and since Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s rise to power, Cairo and Jerusalem have been closely cooperating in the Sinai peninsula in the fight against Islamic State terrorists. According to an infographic released by ISIS, Sinai Province operates in El-Arish, Bir Abd and Sheikh Zuweid. Sisi has waged extensive military operations against Islamic State in Sinai, and in January said 25,000 soldiers have been deployed to northern Sinai to fight the jihadists. Despite the small size of the terrorist group, Sinai Province is considered to be one of the most effective Islamic State franchises outside Syria and Iraq, and has carried out numerous deadly attacks on Egyptian security forces.

Hezbollah-linked video threatens attacks on 9 Israeli nuclear, chemical sites

Propaganda clip includes pictures and details of the sensitive facilities

By Dov Lieber March 3, 2017, 1:56 pm

A propaganda video released by an outlet affiliated with the Hezbollah terror group threatens missile strikes on nine highly sensitive chemical and nuclear sites in Israel. The video published by the al-Ahed news website comes on the heels of increased saber-rattling by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah threatening to strike Israel’s nuclear reactor in the southern city of Dimona and an ammonia storage tank in the northern city of Haifa. The video, published on February 22, not only lists the nine sites and shows satellite images of the locations, but in some instances adds information such as how many people work there, how many buildings it’s comprised of and what dangerous materials are being handled in it. The video begins with what appears to be Russian S-300 missiles being fired and striking the Dimona nuclear reactor and the sound of alarms. The video also lists other sites, including the Nahal Sorek desalination plant in central Israel, and the Kishon chemical plant located near Haifa. Other locations included are nuclear weapons research sites for the Israeli arms developer Raphael, and sites where the Israeli military is allegedly storing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. While Israeli believes Hezbollah has a large weapons arsenal, with rockets that can strike much of the country, the terror group is not known to posses S-300 missiles. Several Israeli airstrikes in Syria have reportedly been carried out to thwart transfers of advanced weapons to the group. Earlier this week, a court ruled that an ammonia storage tank in Haifa must be emptied out and moved, partially in response to a report that found a missile strike on the site could kill tens of thousands of people.

Trump set to sign revised travel ban order

Published March 06, 2017 FoxNews.com

President Trump on Monday is set to sign a revised executive order that will halt America’s refugee program and temporarily ban the entry of people seeking to come to the United States from several countries in the Middle East and Africa, Counselor Kellyanne Conway confirmed to “Fox & Friends.” Amid confusion over the original measure, Conway said the new version includes "six or seven" points that will clarify those areas. Among other changes, she said the new order will clearly exclude legal permanent residents and leave Iraq off a list of countries whose residents would be subject to a temporary travel ban. She also indicated the new version would no longer indefinitely bar Syrian refugees. The administration has repeatedly pushed back the signing of the new executive order as it has worked to better coordinate with agencies that it will need to implement the ban. The new order has been in the works since shortly after a federal court blocked Trump’s initial effort. Trump was elected in November in large part on a national security platform that included stronger U.S. borders and putting an end to ISIS and other radical Islamic terror groups. One of his first official acts after taking office in late-January was to sign executive orders that temporarily halted the U.S. refugee program and travel from seven mostly-Muslim, Middle Eastern and African countries. The orders have been held up in a federal appeals court since early-February, with Trump weighing his options but making clear as recently as last week that he fully intends to fulfill his campaign pledge. “The vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country,” Trump said during his address to a joint session of Congress last week. “It is not compassionate, but reckless to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur,” he said. “We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America. And we cannot allow our nation to become a sanctuary for extremists … That is why my administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our nation safe.” The federal appeals court temporarily blocked parts of Trump’s executive orders and halted the travel ban, then denied the administration’s request to immediately lift the ban. Critics of the ban argue it was hastily crafted with parts lacking adequate constitutional authority. To be sure, uncertainty about the status of green card holders caused confusion and sparked major protests at international airports across the country on the Saturday after Trump signed the executive order, which was followed by administration officials promptly issuing guidance on legal permanent U.S. residents, or green card holders, to exempt them from the ban. According to a draft version of the new order outlined to lawmakers late last week, citizens of Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Syria and Libya will face a 90-day suspension of visa processing as the administration continues to analyze how to enhance vetting procedures. The revised order is expected to remove Iraq from the list of countries that would be subject to a 90-day travel ban. That follows pressure from the Pentagon and State Department, which had urged the White House to reconsider, given Iraq's key role in fighting ISIS. Other changes are also expected, including making clear that all existing visas will be honored and no longer singling out Syrian refugees for an indefinite ban. Syrian refugees will now be treated like other refugees and be subjected to a 120-day suspension of the refugee program. The new version is also expected to remove language that would give priority to religious minorities. Critics had accused the administration of adding such language to help Christians get into the United States while excluding Muslims. Fox News’ Joseph Weber and Serafin Gomez contributed to this report. The Associated Press also contributed to this report.

Sweden roundup: Another weekend of gang-rapes and sexual violence, police forensics so understaffed suspects walk free

Posted on March 6, 2017 14:30 By David Frankenhuis

Several Swedish women and girls have this weekend become the victim of gang rapes, rapes, and other forms of sexual violence. Increasingly, girls and women are publicly questioning the ‘normality’ of the harassment that for many of them seems to virtually have become a part of daily life. Linköping: young woman stabbed, gang-raped In Linköping, a 25-year-old woman was yesterday dragged away by two unknown men to a wooded area near the local university. She was subsequently stabbed, gang-raped, and robbed by the attackers, who have not been caught by police yet. A passer-by found the crying victim, who was bleeding from cutting wounds. According to daily Aftonbladet, a similar sex attack recently took place in the same area in Linköping. The woman managed to give a description of the assailants, but police are scarce with details. “We’re not presenting the information yet since it could negatively affect the investigation,” a law enforcement spokesman commented. The victim has been treated for her wounds in a hospital. Stockholm: young woman raped near school Stockholm police are investigating the rape, also committed last Sunday, of a woman in her early twenties near a school in the city centre, Expressen reports. The authorities are secretive on details of the sex attack, that took place in the early morning hours on the schoolyard of King’s Gymnasium. Forensic detectives have sealed off the place and are looking for traces of the crime. No arrest has yet been made in the case, police have stated. Harassment at the dance floor Tess Bengtsson, a 20-year-old Swedish woman (pictured above), on Friday posted an open letter on her Facebook page to the men who had groped her and two of her friends a few days before during a night out in Halmstad. When Bengtsson and the other young women were dancing in a crowd, several men systematically harassed them, even after the victims had repeatedly signalled to the attackers that they were not interested. “Maybe you just don’t care how we feel about this kind of thing, or you were simply enjoying yourself. To be macho and treat girls anyway you want. (…) We felt uncomfortable and humiliated, so we left, but then decided to go back inside again, so you wouldn’t be the ones to decide on when our evening should end.” But once back inside, Bengtsson writes, things turned even more violent when one of her friends was strangled by one of the perpetrators. “Our evening ended there and in tears, how did yours? (…) Many of us don’t even react to sexual harassment anymore. It happens everywhere, anytime, all the time. We have to constantly be on our guard and beware of you guys who experience things differently. And it’s never our fault that you do.” Prosecutors demand action One of the factors hampering investigations into sex crimes and other felonies is the inertia of the forensic divisions of the police. According to Sveriges Radio, several hundred of the country’s prosecutors are dissatisfied with the detectives’ work, a recent survey has proved. Sweden’s National Forensic Center (NFC) sometimes needs more than a year for a DNA analysis, while offenders go free. “The problem is approaching the size of legal scandal,” one of the commenting prosecutors said, while another stated that “serious criminals are set free because we’re awaiting the response of the NFC.” ‘Mosul safer than Stockholm’ Magda Gad, a female Swedish war correspondent, may exaggerate just a little when she recently stated that, at least for women, the Iraqi city of “Mosul is safer than Stockholm.” (Mosul is still partly occupied by the Islamic State.) “There is no law on the veil here, and it’s quieter to go out as a woman than it is in Stockholm. No one bothers you when you walk the streets, it’s very calm.”

Israel's unlikely path to World Baseball Classic

Martin Rogers , USA TODAY Sports Published 5:57 p.m. ET March 5, 2017 | Updated 8 hours ago

The written history of Israeli baseball would be a pretty small book, but as the World Baseball Classic gets ready to begin on Monday the tournament’s biggest underdog is motivated to provide one of its best story lines. Team Israel will take part in the 16-team field for the first time and is not expected to last too long, having been placed with South Korea, Taiwan and the Netherlands in Pool A with a squad that does not include a player currently on the 40-man roster of a major-league team. However, remarkable upsets are part of what we love about the game, and if the Israel team can display the same level of resiliency that it took just to put the group together, then it could have a fighting chance. MORE BASEBALL COVERAGE: Tim Tebow's Mets debut: Wednesday vs. Red Sox, Friday vs. Astros Does Noah Syndergaard regret skipping World Baseball Classic? 'Not one bit' “We had to hunt far and wide and find the best guys who could potentially be eligible,” Peter Kurz, president of the Israel Association of Baseball, told USA TODAY Sports. Eight of the players have had some major-league experience, with virtually all being Americans of Jewish heritage. Kurz scoured the country, using a baseball blog that charts the progress of Jewish players and relying on word of mouth. WBC regulations dictate that a player can participate if they are eligible to apply for citizenship of that country. Israeli law allows all Jews to receive automatic citizenship. Once Kurz had his list of candidates, a widespread collection of information began, with faxes and emails sent to WBC chiefs including parental birth certificates, evidence of bar and bat mitzvahs or anything else needed to verify the authenticity of the squad’s claim to Israeli eligibility. “In some cases it was easy,” Kurz said. “In others, we had elderly family members trying to track down documents. It was a process.” Then, the team had to actually do the business of qualifying, having lost in the final preliminary stage ahead of the 2013 tournament. There was no mistake this time, with Israel outlasting Brazil, Pakistan and Great Britain to reach the final field. “Playing for Israel is the last thing I thought I would be doing,” Ty Kelly, a utility player in the New York Mets farm system, said. “And there is nothing I would rather be doing. It really does have a deep meaning.” Kelly was part of a group of players to visit Israel in January on a promotional tour aimed at increasing baseball awareness and boosting the number of players from its current level of around 1,000. “When we went to Israel we saw the pride they have in their country,” Kelly added. “To be able to give the people another outlet to express that pride, by supporting a team in a sport that Israel has never been known for, it just feels really cool.” The sport’s national governing body has made moves to ensure the sport is integrated across different ethnicities and is confident that the positive coverage provided by the WBC will give an extra boost. While Israel is considered the biggest long shot out of the 16 teams, it has some names that will be familiar to baseball followers, including 2009 All-Star pitcher Jason Marquis and Ike Davis, who hit 32 homers for the Mets in 2012. Ryan Lavarnway, a catcher in the Oakland A's system, insisted no team will have a closer bond than Israel. “In America as a Jew are you a minority but especially in the game of baseball,” Lavarnway told the BBC. “We have so much shared experience and understanding that hardship road of the ups and downs of baseball. It has really bonded us as a team."

Chick-fil-A employee gets new home from customer

By Travis Rice Published: February 22, 2017, 7:53 pm Updated: February 22, 2017, 7:53 pm

MCCLELLANVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – A McClellanville family has a new home thanks to stranger. Brian Smyth was so pleased with his Chick-fil-A experience a year and a half ago due to Shakeel Williams, he befriended him. “He has this sort of natural humanity that just shines through in everything he does,” said Smyth. Smyth got to know Williams and his family. The title agency president started helping to pay for Williams’ medical bills stemming from sickle cell anemia and its complications. Smyth decided he needed to do something bigger for “Shack” as Williams is called by those close to him after driving him home from work one night. Last week, Smyth and the construction crew demolished the trailer William’s lives at with his mother and siblings. And on Wednesday, the family got to see what they will be moving into in a few days. “I thank God first of all,” said Tolunda Williams, Shekeel’s mother, “and thank God for my son.” “It’s like a blessing,” added Shekeel. Shekeel’s mother says she never imagined the values she instilled in Shekeel to pay off like this. “Shack treats somebody how you want them to treat you,” said Williams, “it’s a blessing.” Bryan Smyth’s company Landmark 13 gives 13% of it’s profits to people in need.

North Korea fires four missiles toward Japan, angering Tokyo and South Korea

By Ju-min Park and Kaori Kaneko | SEOUL/TOKYO Mon Mar 6, 2017 | 3:40pm EST

North Korea fired four ballistic missiles into the sea off Japan's northwest on Monday, angering South Korea and Japan, days after it promised retaliation over U.S.-South Korea military drills it sees as preparation for war. South Korea's military said the missiles were unlikely to have been intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), which can reach the United States. They flew on average 1,000 km (620 miles) and reached an altitude of 260 km (160 miles). Some landed as close as 300 km (190 miles) from Japan's northwest coast, Japan's Defence Minister Tomomi Inada said in Tokyo. The United States and Japan have requested a United Nations Security Council meeting on the launches, which will likely be scheduled for Wednesday, diplomats said. The U.S. military on Monday left open the possibility of additional launch attempts. "There were four that landed. There may be a higher number of launches that we're not commenting on. But four landed and splashed in the Sea of Japan," Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, told a news briefing. White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters the United States was taking steps to enhance "our ability to defend against ballistic missiles" such as a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery in South Korea. "The launches are consistent with North Korea’s long history of provocative behavior," Spicer said. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said "strong protests" had been lodged with nuclear-armed North Korea, which has carried out a series of nuclear and missile tests in defiance of U.N. resolutions. "The launches are clearly in violation of Security Council resolutions. It is an extremely dangerous action," Abe told parliament. South Korea's acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn condemned the launches as a direct challenge to the international community and said Seoul would swiftly deploy a U.S. anti-missile defense system despite angry objections from China. The missiles were launched from the Tongchang-ri region near the reclusive North's border with China, South Korean military spokesman Roh Jae-cheon told a briefing, but said it was too early to say what their relatively low altitude indicated. Joshua Pollack, editor of the U.S.-based Non-Proliferation Review, said it did not appear the North had launched an ICBM. "It sounds like a field exercise involving deployed missiles, probably ones we've seen before," Pollack said. U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, also told Reuters there were no indications so far that North Korea had tested an ICBM. “We deplore the continued violation of Security Council resolutions by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, including the most recent launches of ballistic missiles. The DPRK leadership should refrain from further provocations and return to full compliance with its international obligations,” U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq said on Monday. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily news briefing that China, which is holding its annual meeting of the National People's Congress, had noted North Korea's action. "All sides should exercise restraint and not do anything to irritate each other to worsen regional tensions," Geng said, referring to both the missile launches and U.S.-South Korean military exercises. JOINT DRILLS North Korea had threatened to take "strong retaliatory measures" after South Korea and the United States began annual joint military drills on Wednesday that test their defensive readiness against possible aggression from the North. North Korea criticizes the drills and has previously conducted missile launches to coincide with them. Last year, North Korea fired a long-range rocket from Tongchang-ri that put an object into orbit. The United Nations condemned that launch for violating resolutions banning the use of ballistic missile technology. North Korea test-fired a new type of missile into the sea last month and has said it would continue to launch new strategic weapons. Last month's test was the first since the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has vowed to rein in North Korea and its leader, Kim Jong Un. Trump's national security deputies have reviewed options to counter the missile threat, the New York Times reported, including missile strikes on launch sites and the possibility of reintroducing nuclear weapons to the South, the Times said. Those options would soon be presented to Trump and national security aides, it said, quoting U.S. administration officials. The United States withdrew nuclear weapons from South Korea in 1991 before the rival Koreas signed a declaration on denuclearization of the peninsula. North Korea walked away from the agreement, citing the threat of invasion by the United States. "The claim that we should redeploy nuclear weapons here, 20 years after they were withdrawn, is total nonsense," said Woo Sang-ho, floor leader of South Korea’s main opposition Democratic Party. "I am formally asking the United States not to bring this issue up for consideration," Woo told a party meeting. North Korea conducted its fifth and most powerful nuclear test last September, following what the United States said was an "unprecedented" level of activity in its banned nuclear and missile programs. State media said after that test Pyongyang had used a nuclear warhead small enough to mount on a ballistic missile. The United States has about 28,500 troops and equipment stationed in the South, and plans to roll out the THAAD system there by the end of the year. Japan plans to reinforce its ballistic missile defenses and is considering buying either THAAD or building a ground-based version of the Aegis system deployed on ships in the Sea of Japan.

Red alert on US destroyer in Black Sea as Russian jets 'buzz' aggressively overhead just yards above deck

The aircraft comes within yards of the the deck on the USS Porter as it shoots overhead

By Sam Adams 16:44, 2 MAR 2017Updated12:14, 3 MAR 2017

This dramatic footage shows the moment a Russian fighter jet buzzes a US destroyer in the Black Sea. The aircraft comes within yards of the the deck on the USS Porter as it shoots overhead. It is unclear why the jet engaged in such an aggressive manoeuvre, but Russia has recently been reasserting its strategic control over the Black Sea region. Russia has a huge naval battle fleet stationed in Sevastopol. The Kremlin is spending a fortune beefing up the nation's armed forces. Putin's forces are carrying out a gruelling Cold War exercise in freezing Arctic conditions as Russia moves to bolster its military presence in the region. A 2,000 kilometre convoy of snow trucks and impenetrable tanks was seen thundering over the frozen Laptev Sea as it travelled to a new state-of-the-art military base. Units will test out new equipment and specialised uniforms that can stand -30C conditions after travelling from the bleak Arctic port of Tiksi to the island of Kotelny. Deputy Defence Minister Gen. Dmitry Bulgakov said the aim was to "research and test new and promising models of weapons and military and special equipment in the Arctic".

Act of War: Mexico deliberately pollutes Calif. beaches with tsunami of raw sewage 5 times that of Gulf oil spill

Posted on March 2, 2017 by Dr. Eowyn | 33 Comments

Is this Mexico’s revenge against President Trump’s construction of a wall along our southern border? Tijuana is a Mexican city located on the Gold Coast of Baja California, with a population of 1,696,923 as of 2015. Located on the Mexican-Californian border, Tijuana is part of the international San Diego–Tijuana metropolitan area. California’s state and local officials believe a massive sewage spill in Tijuana that is polluting beaches in San Diego County this month may have been no accident. Officials said during a period of more than two weeks that ended Thursday, March 1, about 143 million gallons of raw sewage spewed into the Tijuana River and made its way up the coast. While cross-border sewage spills of a few million gallons are routine for the region, this is one of the largest such events in the last two decades, according to water quality experts in San Diego. People from Tijuana to as far north as Coronado, a resort city in San Diego County, have been complaining of foul odors for weeks, prompting lawmakers in San Diego County to contact federal regulators as well as agencies in Mexico. The U.S. regulators said their Mexican counterparts have given little explanation, neither have Mexican officials responded to L.A. Times‘ requests for comment. Serge Dedina, mayor of Imperial Beach, a residential beach city in San Diego County, said he tried to get answers from officials on both sides of the border for more than a week with no response. Dedina said: “This was like a tsunami of sewage spills. What’s worse is it looks to me like this was deliberate. It saves [the Mexican agencies] a lot of money in pumping costs, and ultimately, they can get away with it and do it all the time, just on a much smaller scale.” The toxic discharge is estimated to have happened from Feb. 6 through March 1, while repairs were made to a major sewer pipe near the confluence of Mexico’s Alamar and Tijuana rivers, according to the U.S. side of the International Boundary and Water Commission. Baja California’s State Public Service Commission maintains the sewer-system infrastructure in that area. “They basically said it was a bypass of raw sewage into the Tijuana River during the rehabilitation of a large sewer pipeline in Tijuana,” said Lori Kuczmanski, spokeswoman for the U.S. side of the commission, which oversees international water treaties with Mexico, among other things. By Tuesday, Feb. 28, U.S. officials said their Mexican counterparts still offered only scant details of the situation. They also said Mexico didn’t give them advance notice of the sewer-pipe repair project. Dave Gibson, executive officer of the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board, said: “Was the spill intentional? Well, yeah. It appears they were working on the pipeline. I don’t believe that it was a question of it failing. At least a notification would be a good neighborly thing to do, to let us know what was coming down the river before it got here so we could alert the public. Two-hundred years ago this might have been the state of the science but there’s absolutely no question, whatsoever, that the state of the science is you capture the sewage and you keep it in the system.” Gibson said a similar project in the United States would include efforts to prevent sewage from flowing downstream by using booms and then pumping the diverted sewage back into the wastewater system. Countless residents in the area have smelled the the spill. In addition to health concerns, people nearby are concerned that they’re just now hearing about it. Many are furious, saying the sewage should’ve been recaptured and put back into the treatment system instead of being allowed to travel all the way into the Pacific Ocean. Plus, they say they were never warned of the spill. On the evening of March 2, dozens of angry South Bay residents concerned about the massive sewage spill packed an International Boundaries Water Commission meeting. Leslie Bell, a Coronado Cays resident who was at the meeting, said as her daughter stood nearby with a sign that read ‘Mexico must Pay!‘: “When our kids can’t go and swim at the beach that’s right across form us, a state beach, it’s very upsetting. We just want to make sure that somebody is held accountable for it. If it hadn’t gotten worse and worse, they would have just gotten away with it if they could have. So how often is this happening? I feel like I have to go test the water every time my kids go swimming now.” According to a document released by the International Boundary and Water Commission Thursday, both U.S. and Mexican commissioners have agreed to investigate the transboundary sewage spill. Sources: Los Angeles Times; NBCSanDiego This tsunami of sewage spill is an environmental disaster. Where is the Sierra Club? Where are California’s vaunted environmentalists? To give you a sense of the magnitude of Mexico’s deliberate sewage dump, let’s compare it to the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster of 2010: In the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, a total of 210,000,000 gallons of oil seeped into the Gulf of Mexico over the course of 5 months, from April 20 to September 19, 2010, i.e., 152 days — or 1.381 million gallons a day. In the case of Tijuana’s sewage spill, 143,000,000 gallons of raw sewage were dumped into the Tijuana River during a period of 21 days (Feb. 6 through March 1) — or 6.809 million gallons a day. That means on an average per day gallon basis, the Tijuana sewage spill is 5 times more than the Gulf oil spill. The Tijuana sewage spill is tantamount to an act of war by the government of Mexico.

What is this 2.5mile long object moving under the Pacific Ocean?

A MASSIVE circular structure has been spotted slowly crawling across the Pacific sea floor 3000 feet below the surface.

By Paul Baldwin PUBLISHED: 00:07, Fri, Mar 3, 2017 | UPDATED: 00:41, Fri, Mar 3, 2017

The object, which observers say looks man-made rather than natural, is estimated to measure more than 2.5miles in diameter and is surrounded by what look like massive tank tracks. Other observers suggest the tracks may be trenches or fortifications. But the most baffling thing is the circular object which appears to have left a 41 mile track in its wake as it trundled across the floor of the North Pacific off the Californian coast . The object was brought to the attention of alien investigators SecureTeam10 Tyler, who helps run the internet investigations site, said: “There are certain areas of the ocean that are obviously blurred out. But what better place would there be for another race or another group of beings to hide than in the deep of our own oceans? “While we are up staring at the sky all day and worrying about what’s up there we have 90 per cent of our oceans unchartered. “We have no idea what’s there and we have a lot of mysterious UFO phenomena happening in our oceans. “Some of these tracks truly do seem to have been dug out by something. “We see a large circular object and an obvious path or trail created by it – and it disappears into a blurred out area – how convenient.” Not everyone is convinced however. After SecureTeam10 published the Google sonar map on YouTube Mikitan Fox said: “Large parallel lines = tectonic fissures, naturally occurring sorry. “The curvy line is likely the pathway of a underwater current and deposition field of said current.” But the sceptics were far outnumbered by viewers curious to discover what the 2.5 mile object was. Paul Skillman said: “70% of our planet is covered by water. There could be things going on in our oceans that we are totally unaware of.”

Artificial 'embryo' created for first time in historic breakthrough

The three-dimensional model of a mouse embryo appeared to be ‘anatomically correct’

Ian Johnston Science Correspondent Thursday 2 March 2017 19:53 GMT

An artificial embryo-like structure has been created in the laboratory for the first time in a historic breakthrough that could shed light on the “magic” behind the creation of life. Researchers at Cambridge University were able to make what looked like an early “anatomically correct” mouse embryo. While stressing it was “nowhere near” something that could grow into an actual animal, one of the scientists said this would “without a doubt” eventually be possible. The same technique could potentially be used to build an artificial model of a human embryo, which might help scientists work out reasons why some early embryos fail to develop in the womb. Commenting on the research, described in the journal Science, one scientist in the field described it as a “beautifully conceived masterpiece”. The embryo model was made by combining two different types of stem cells, which can turn into any kind of tissue needed to make an animal, from brain to skin cells. One type forms the foetus, while the other develops into the placenta. Professor Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz, who led the research, said: “Both the embryonic and extra-embryonic cells start to talk to each other and become organised into a structure that looks like and behaves like an embryo. “It has anatomically correct regions that develop in the right place and at the right time.” Fellow researcher Sarah Harrison, a PhD student, said using human stem cells to create a similar structure in the lab was “something certainly to explore”. “Again it would be a model, it would never be the real thing … [but could be] something that’s going to help us discover what leads to pregnancy failure,” she said. The researchers said the cells seemed to organise themselves into the right structure after a three-dimensional scaffold on which they could grow was built for them. “Certainly, when we started the preliminary experiments, we were surprised by the amount of self-organisation we could get – the self-assembly, if you will – without a great amount of manipulation,” Ms Harrison said. “You just need the right mix of things and there’s a bit of self-organisation going on.” Further research could be carried out to discover “what are the magic factors that really allow such a process, the arrangement of these cells, in what is effectively a mix of things?” Asked if the same technique could be used to create something close to a human embryo, she said: “Without a doubt it could be done … everything is possible eventually. “What we have done is certainly nowhere near that. Maybe it’s a step towards that but we haven’t created something that’s anything like the real thing. “It’s still really a model of what’s going on. Perhaps somebody in the future would be able to do this.” A third type of stem cell, which would form the yolk sac, would be among the extra steps required to create a functioning embryo artificially. Professor Zernicka-Goetz pioneered a technique that allows early embryos to develop in a lab beyond the point at which they would normally implant in the womb. But their studies have been hampered by a lack of embryos. Being able to create something similar artificially could solve this problem. “We think that it will be possible to mimic a lot of the developmental events occurring before 14 days using human embryonic and extra-embryonic stem cells using a similar approach to our technique using mouse stem cells,” Professor Zernicka-Goetz said. “We are very optimistic that this will allow us to study key events of this critical stage of human development without actually having to work on embryos. Knowing how development normally occurs will allow us to understand why it so often goes wrong.” Dr Dusko Ilic, a reader in stem cell science at King’s College London, said the research was “another masterpiece of recreating in vitro the earliest steps of embryo development coming from the Zernicka-Goetz lab”. He added it was “a beautifully conceived and executed study demonstrating interplay of different cells in different cellular compartments within the first days of mouse development”. And Professor Robin Lovell-Badge, of the Francis Crick Institute in London, described the paper as “very interesting on a number of counts”.

Globalists Continue To Foreshadow Doomsday As 'Insider' Reveals Answer To The Question: 'Who Runs The World?'

Why Are The Globalists Continuing To Foreshadow An Apocalyptic Biological Attack?

March 2, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The first video below from Infowars begins "right now, the global elite are preparing for something big. It looks like they're in the final stages of positioning themselves for a worldwide global pandemic - an event they say is not a matter of 'if', but a matter of 'when' it will happen". Before you proclaim 'fake news', let's take a look at the facts. As we reported back on February 19th in an ANP story called "Bill Gates Chilling Warnings: 'The Doomsday Scenarios Are Real' - 'Could Kill Hundreds Of Millions' With 'Terrifying New Weapons'", when 'depopulation' Bill Gates talks, Americans should listen. As the Infowars video points out using Bill Gates own words spoken by him, vaccines are one of the best ways to depopulate and regain control over the growth of the human population. If knowing Gates huge ownership portion of Monsanto isn't bad enough, knowing his long-documented ties to eugenics and global health organizations tied to depopulation are another bright-red red flag. Within this story and the videos below we take a look at more emerging evidence that the globalists may be preparing something absolutely sinister to regain control over the world via a planned pandemic that could 'thin out the herd', a goal they've long expressed as seen at one of America's most sinister sites, the Georgia Guidestones. With the election of President Donald Trump guaranteeing the globalists have, at least temporarily, lost control of 'their biggest prize', America, and the war against President Trump unfolding on all fronts as Susan Duclos reported today on ANP, we also see in a book recently released by Chelsea Clinton herself the globalists goal of regaining control over America and the world in her cryptically sub-titled "Who Runs The World And Why?" According to the new story from the Independent Journal Review, Chelsea Clinton's 'bold new online persona may be prep for her own political career'. For those of us who truly believed that America was done with the Clinton's once and for all, their story may be evidence that an attempt at a new 'Clinton dynasty' awaits as 'Chelsea boldly goes where she's never gone before', attacking the Trump administration over and over again from her 'high seat' upon Twitter. Also publicizing her attendance at a Muslim solidarity rally where she brought her own daughter Charlotte to her first protest, she's also taken on 'fake news', Trump's comments on Sweden (which were later proven to be correct) while also recently releasing a book called "Governing Global Health: Who Runs The World And Why?". As TruthFeed reports, not only was her book a HUGE FLOP but Clinton and her co-writer Devi Sindhar never do actually get around to officially answering that question: "Who runs the world and why?" However, looking through the purposeful vagueness as well as reviews of the rest of the book, we see that question answered as: big banks and global health organizations across the planet who have purposefully positioned themselves into positions to rule over the world should a massive pandemic 'take down most of humanity'. As the Infowars video argues, more and more such reasons are emerging for President Trump to get the US out global organizations and global health agreements that put the US's medical sovereignty at risk. With Clinton seemingly arguing that 'global health partnerships' are the answer to the world's health problems, we'd have to disagree strongly as health care is a deeply personal issue like any other and govts and 'global partnerships' have never been 'the answer'. While a well-trusted and well-loved family doctor can offer amazing advice, those once beloved providers of healthcare and American values have largely gone away with the advent of big corporate medicine. Book reviewers over at Amazon have been absolutely brutal on Clinton with even the 'top positive review' of the book seen in the screenshot above absolutely shredding her despite giving the book 5 stars. Comparing the book to pepper spray to keep unwanted 'clingers' away, giving the book as a recent Valentines Day 'gift' has kept their 'clinger' away. As of this moment, 82% of book reviewers gave Clinton a 'one-star rating' on the disastrous book. As we see in the additional comments screenshot below, people aren't buying her obvious NWO propaganda and as the first comment mentions, "When you kill off one set of people who provide your income, I guess you need new ones from another set to take their place, right?"

Holder Admits to Coup Against the American People Led By Obama

By Dave Hodges

Meet America’s number one covert subversive operative, Eric Holder, the CALEXIT spokesman, perpetrator of the illegal Fast and Furious operation. He was also held in contempt of Congress for refusing to come clean in his other scandal, Fast and Furious which resulted in the death of Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry. Holder talks openly about the sedition being fermented by for President Obama and the OFA. I have just concluded an investigation into the role that Holder and Obama are going to play in the beginning of the coup and against President Trump and the civil war being perpetrated against the American people and their government. This is Part One of that investigation. Part 2 will follow later today and will focus on the long-standing nature of this plot that came before Holder and it is precisely the plot that Soviet defectors, from the 1970’s and the 1980’s warned our government about.

EXCLUSIVE: Barack Obama's close confidante Valerie Jarrett has moved into his new DC home, which is now the nerve center for their plan to mastermind the insurgency against President Trump

Obama's goal is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment, a family friend tells DailyMail.com

Jarrett has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion to work closely with the former president and Michelle Obama

Jarrett lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and helped shape his domestic and foreign policies

Obama cannot use his West End office, a post-presidency perk, for political purposes

'He's coming. And he's ready to roll.' former Attorney General Eric Holder said yesterday about the former president's reentry into the political scene

By Leon Wagener For Dailymail.com Published: 15:12 EST, 1 March 2017 | Updated: 19:17 EST, 1 March 2017

Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation's capital - just two miles away from the White House - into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump. Obama's goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment. And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends. Jarrett played a vital - if at times low-key - role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies. The former president has set up an office on the West End of the national's capitol, where he recently hosted an open house for his White House staff - including Joe Biden, Susan Rice, Josh Earnest and Jarrett. But the office, part of his post presidency perks, cannot be used for political purposes. The rent on his home is paid by him personally. On Tuesday, former Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that Obama is indeed getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics. 'It's coming. He's coming,' Holder said speaking to reporters. 'And he's ready to roll.' According to the family source, Obama was at first reluctant to assume the role of leader of the opposition. 'No longer the most powerful man in the world, he was just observing Trump and not liking what he saw,' said the source. 'He was weary and burned out after eight years in office. But Valerie convinced him that he didn't have any choice if he wanted to save his legacy. And, as usual, he bowed to Valerie's political wisdom and advice.' In his only public comment against Trump since leaving the presidency, Obama came out in support of the protests opposing President Donald Trump's executive order to restrict immigration from predominantly Muslim countries. A spokesman said the former president thinks they're 'citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.' After Obama left office, Jarrett moved all her White House belonging into the Kalorama mansion. 'There was never any doubt that Valerie would have a suite of rooms in the house that the Obama's are renting,' said the source. 'Obama trusts her judgment more than any other person on the planet, as does Michelle. Obama doesn't make a decision without her.' Spurred on by Jarrett and Michelle, the ex-president has come to embrace his role as the leader of the opposition against Trump, whose policies he loathes and whose presidency he considers illegitimate. 'He is going to use his immense popularity with the half of the country that identifies as liberals and progressives,' said the Obama family source. 'Millions of Americans are energized and ready to take to the streets to oppose Trump, but they need to be organized and have their anger focused and directed. 'Obama is dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy—ObamaCare, the social safety net and the welcome mat for refugees he put in place,' the source continued. Trump's cabinet picks are also problematic for the former president, especially Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, whom Obama regards as too racially insensitive to be in charge of the Civil Rights division at Justice. Leaving Jim Comey as FBI Director is another thorn in Obama's side. He blames Comey for announcing that he was reopening the FBI investigation into Hillary's emails eleven days before the election, which, in Obama's view, was an irresponsible act that helped elect Trump. 'He had hoped to write his memoirs, golf to his heart's content. and bask in the glory of his eight years in power and the progressive achievements he brought about. Instead, he is going to be leading the fight and strategy to topple Trump.' says the insider. The Kalorama house, which the Obama's are renting from Joe Lockhart, who was Bill Clinton's press secretary, is still being refurbished and redecorated by Michelle. 'Michelle and Valerie have changed their minds many times over about colors, carpets, wall paper, furnishing and art,' said the source. Michelle hired Los Angeles-based interior designer Michel S. Smith, who designed several rooms in The White House during their residence, to decorate the Kalorama home. Smith will also decorate the Obama's new home in Rancho Mirage, California. According to the source, Michelle and Valerie have big plans for traveling and shopping as well as strategizing over Trump. The friend said that Valerie and her signature enormous totes are going to be packed and ready to go for shopping sprees with Michelle from their native Chicago to Paris and the Far East, including Shanghai. 'They feel like they have had some great trips while in the White House, but were always working and being herded around,' said the source. 'Now they are planning to travel together - home to Chicago, to Paris and Shanghai, and shop to their heart's content. 'The Obamas both love the Kalorama house and are making it their own,' continued the source. 'They have plans to build a pool on the grounds. And they are almost certainly going to wind up buying the house from Lockart in the next few years. 'They are also planning to have a house in Hawaii, as well as in Chicago, where the Obama Presidential Library will be built. But Kalorama, where the Washington action takes place, is going to be home base.'

The Democrats: Out of Touch, Out of Ideas, Out of their Minds

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to discern that the party of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy is an unhinged, untethered time bomb that needs to take a very long sabbatical on a very large and very soft shrink’s couch. President Trump’s speech on Tuesday night was nothing less than spectacular. It was a Cubs late inning grand slam, a Payton Manning touchdown throw, a Bill Murray, ‘Mirac’ all in one. Even Van Jones, seated on the CNN Trump kangaroo prosecution court said it best, “Trump became the President with that speech.” The Democrats didn’t think so… The ‘Not Our President’ crowd arrived in white outfits, led by Nancy Pelosi and looking like they were on their way to a Kool Aid party with Jim Jones after a quick stop in Congress. Mr. Trump spoke on many of his favorite issues; securing the border, destroying ISIS, fixing the decaying 19th Century infrastructure in the country and above all, repairing the economy and providing the forgotten men and women of America with quality jobs and a decent life. You would think that the Democrats would have applauded several of these issues. After all, everyone needs a job; whether you’re a liberal or a conservative. You would think… The Democrats reached a new low when the President hailed fallen US Navy SEAL, Chief William ‘Ryan’ Owens, who was killed in action during the SEAL raid on an Al-Qaeda camp in Yemen. Owens’ wife, Carryn, was given a standing ovation as she stood in the balcony, sobbing. It was an extremely emotional and maudlin moment. It was an occasion when all Americans should come together to honor a US serviceman who gave all that mortality can give. The Republicans stood and applauded with the President, Vice President Pence and Speaker Ryan. Most of the Democrats refused to stand and sat glumly, doing something Democrats are very good at, being unpatriotic. If the Democrats’ conduct was beyond disgraceful on Tuesday night, the comments made by former Hillary Clinton campaign operative Dan Grilo can only be labeled vile and the work of a coward. What kind of man mocks a military widow? Grilo called Carryn Owens an idiot on Twitter for letting herself be used by Mr. Trump, before he was savaged and forced to delete his account. After the speech, the Democrats rolled out former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear, who looked like the guy from the Heaven’s Gate cult and who had seated around him, the last ten white people in mid-America who call themselves Democrats. Beshear said nothing, which is what the Democrats have to offer the nation in terms of solutions to fix the disaster brought upon by the globalist marionette, Barack Obama. Once the Democrats saw the CNN poll which indicated 78% of Americans liked the speech, they went into action. It was time to pull out their go to conspiracy; the old Russian fairy tale. To counter Trump’s speech, the Deep State wheels began churning. From Obama’s residence in DC and with the help of the always dutiful Marxist, Valerie Jarrett, a new angle was quickly invented: Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Russian ambassador, claimed the Democrats. And, he failed to inform Senator Al Franken during testimony before Congress. Of course what they failed to mention is that as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, it was Sessions’ job to meet with foreign ambassadors. When questioned by Franken, Sessions may have not provided the most articulate answer, but there was no intent to deceive Congress, which certainly knew when and where Sessions was meeting dignitaries from Russia. Any logic provided by Sessions and James Clapper and Paul Ryan is thrown out the window by hysterical Democrats. The Russian fairy tale is just that, a story created by Deep State intelligence personnel loyal to Mr. Obama and his gang of Chekists. But, the Democrats never operate with logic. They run on emotion. Since they have nothing to offer the nation in terms of ideas, liberals are clinging to the idea that somehow, some way, Russia caused Hillary Clinton to lose the election and everyone in Trump’s cabinet and the President was in on the imaginary conspiracy. The Russian fantasy lingers like a boil in the brains of Chuckie Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Pocahontas Warren and the rest of the barnyard animals and circus performers that are called the Democratic Party these days. Today, Senator Al Franken, former SNL comedian and Minnesota liberal acted like MASH’s paranoid Colonel Flagg as he spoke of the possibility that Sessions is somehow in cahoots with the Rodina. When Al Franken is the nation’s counter-intelligence expert, you know the lunacy has reached new heights. You would think it would be impossible to top the paranoia and helpless hysteria of Schumer, Pelosi, Warren and Franken. Enter New Hamsphire Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who stated today that “We should think about whether it is an act of war or not.” “If the United States isn’t going to take any action in response to that Russian intrusion against your elections, then how can we think that the United States is going to take any action to protect us against Russia?” Wow, now the Democrats want to go to war with Russia over the imaginary idea that the Russians got Trump elected. Welcome to the Cold War liberals. You’re about 30 years late and 30 Rubles short. The fact is the Democrats are in a tailspin and they have no idea where the eject handle is on their kamikaze. The fact is the Democrats have nothing to offer Americans; zippo, nada: no new policies, no ideas, no solutions, nothing but a big fat goose egg. The fact is the Democrats are a bi-coastal party serving up politically correct horse dung for Hollywood jackasses like Meryl Streep and for Manhattan liberals who think they’re cultured because they live down the street from an art museum. The Democrats are the useful tools for the global elite, who have not given up their plan to continue the train wreck of open borders and trade deals that suck the life out of the American worker, while lining the pockets of billionaires. When you don’t have any plan to fix America, the plan is to deceive the population and to destroy the current administration. The Democrats need to remember one thing; if they ever win another Presidency, which is doubtful, payback is going to be a bitch.

George W. Bush heaped praise on Jimmy Kimmel for his anti-Trump opening monologue at the Oscars on Thursday night, telling the comedian enthusiastically that his performance was 'damn good'. In a rare and lighthearted television appearance, Bush steered clear of mentioning the current president by name but was led into several subtle jabs at him by his mischievous host. Among the slights was a compliment for Kimmel's decidedly anti-Trump debut at the Academy Awards. 'I saw your opening. I thought it was damn good!' he enthused, adding later that Kimmel was a 'funny guy'. During his opening skit at the award ceremony Kimmel on Sunday landed several blows on President Trump about how he'd made the rest of the world 'hate' America and described a divided country that no one could fix. He then mocked Trump's assessment of Meryl Streep as one of Hollywood's most 'overrated actresses', sarcastically piling on to her apparent mediocrity. President Bush, eager to portray his sense of humor on Thursday, appeared to wholeheartedly approve of the roast. But Bush didn't stop there in allowing Kimmel to make pointed comparisons with the current commander-in-chief. Unlike Trump who has complained incessantly about news networks and their coverage of him, Bush said he didn't ever watch television during office. 'You're pretty busy, there's plenty to do.' He said he always enjoyed attending the White House Correspondents Dinner - something the current president boycotted - and even used it as an opportunity to poke fun at himself. 'I love humor, the best humor is when you make fun of yourself,' President Bush said, carefully resisting Kimmel's response: 'Tell that to the president!'. While he admitted he hadn't ever watched Alec Baldwin in his role on Saturday Night Live, President Bush embraced the show's imitations of him while he was in office. KIMMEL'S OPENING SPEECH OSCARS JABS AT TRUMP 'This broadcast is being watched live by millions of Americans, and around the world in more than 225 countries that now hate us. And I think that is an amazing thing.' 'As you know, I don’t have to tell anybody, the country is divided right now. I’ve been getting a lot of advice. It’s time to bring people together. You have to say something. Let’s just get something straight off the top. I can’t do that. There’s only one “Braveheart” in the room, and he’s not gonna unite us either. Mel [Gibson], you look great. I think the Scientology is working. I really do.' 'You know, if every person watching this show — I don’t want to get too serious, but there are millions and millions of people watching right now — and if every one of you took a minute to reach out to one person you disagree with, someone you like, and have a positive, considerate conversation — not as liberals or conservatives, as Americans — if we could all do that, we can make America great again. We really could. It starts with us.' 'I want to say thank you to President Trump. I mean remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist? It has been an amazing year for movies. Black people saved NASA and white people saved jazz. That’s what you call progress. 'We are here tonight to honor great actors but we’re also here to honor the actors who seem great, but actually really aren’t. And of all the “great actors” here in Hollywood, one in part has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances.' 'Meryl, stand up, if you would. Everybody please join me in giving Meryl Streep a totally undeserved round of applause, will you? ... Nice dress by the way. Is that an Ivanka?' He let out a roaring laugh when asked if he was jealous of President Trump's inauguration size but stopped short of mocking his claims it was the 'biggest ever'. Instead, President Bush redirected the jest to himself. 'I was there. I was the guy trying to put the poncho on!' he laughed, recalling his scrambled attempt to take cover when the heavens opened during Trump's speech. Unlike Trump, who last year slammed The Wall Street Journal, President Bush said he relied on the publication for his daily news. The 70-year-old diplomatically resisted Kimmel's several attempts to have him chide Trump by name. He did let out an enthusiastic laugh when asked if he was jealous of the size of the crowds at Trump's inauguration. The former president shared several upbeat anecdotes from his time and office. He laughed off a hunting accident which saw Vice President Dick Cheney shoot lawyer Harry Whittington in the face. 'Every time Cheney would come in, a lot of people would yell duck!' He also revealed that prior to his marriage to former first lady Laura Bush, he once went on a date with Tricia Nixon, President Nixon's daughter. Nixon was president at the time and Bush, then in his twenties, took her to a dinner thrown by his father. It was the first time he'd ever been to the White House and he collected her in a purple Gremlin, he said. 'It was an arranged date by my dad. It was interesting. I pulled up in a purple Gremlin. I took her to a dinner. 'My dad had a dinner for Frank Bourman who was an astronaut from Houston and I took her.' He made a brief reference to his father's health, winning applause from the studio audience when he revealed both he and his mother are 'doing great'. George Bush Snr, 92, was admitted to hospital at the start of the year due to a respiratory issue that caused him to miss Trump's inauguration. He was released in time to flip the coin for the Super Bowl with his wife Barbara by his side. Asked how they were, he said enthusiastically: 'Thank you for asking, they're both doing great. 'When he came out to flip the coin at the Super Bowl it was a very joyful moment. He's a great guy.' The former president was on the show to promote his new book, Portraits of Courage: Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors. The book is compiled of oil paintings by the former president of members of the Armed Forces. President Bush has been doing the media rounds. On Wednesday, he spoke about his fondness for former first lady Michelle Obama during an interview with People. He said that he and Obama shared 'a genuine expression of affection' for one another during that moment when they were photographed embracing in Washington last September. Bush said he developed a lighthearted rapport with the former first lady, who took a liking to his sense of humor. 'Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like,' Bush told People. Bush, 70, and Obama, 53, found time to strike up a friendship while seated next to one another during official events, like the recent opening of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture and Nancy Reagan's funeral. At the museum opening, Bush and Obama were photographed in a warm embrace. The image went viral and is often considered the definitive snapshot of their relationship. In July, Bush and Obama held hands while singing The Battle Hymn of the Republic during the memorial service for five police officers killed by a sniper in Dallas. Bush was evidently swinging his arms and appeared to be enjoying himself, prompting some to criticize him for not acting appropriately during a solemn occasion. 'I can't remember where else I've sat next to her, but I probably have a few wise cracks and she seemed to like it okay,' says Bush. 'I needle her a little bit and around her, I'm fairly lighthearted. [The Obamas] are around serious people all the time and we just took to each other.' The public relations blitz by Bush is aimed at promoting his latest undertaking - an exhibition of his oil paintings depicting US military veterans. An exhibition of the portraits will open Thursday at the former president's library in Dallas. The collection, on display at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Texas until October 1, features 66 portraits and a four-panel mural. Bush's paintings pay tribute to the nearly 100 wounded or traumatized personnel who he has known personally since leaving the White House in 2009. As the 43rd US president Bush had commanded the US military members, who all served in the wars he launched in Iraq and Afghanistan following the attacks on September 11, 2001. The former commander-in-chief released on Tuesday a book titled 'Portraits in Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors,' which includes images of the portraits and the veterans' personal stories. Bush said he wanted to use the paintings and book to highlight the veterans'

Declining Christianity

by Hal Lindsey

The Pew Research Center released the results of a poll last week showing a dramatic drop in the number of people who claim to be Christians in America. Over a period of only seven years, the number went down eight percentage points — from 79% to 71%. Meanwhile, the number of those who claim to be atheists, agnostics, or “nothing in particular” went up from 16% to 23%. Headlines across the nation ballyhooed the news. But closer examination shows that it’s hardly a victory for the forces of secularization. National Review’s David Paul Kuhn put the poll in perspective. “The share of Americans who identify as Christian has been declining for years,” he wrote. “The share of religious Americans has not. For about 75 years, despite periodic fluctuations, the Gallup Poll has found that approximately four in 10 Americans say they attend religious services at least once a week. Religious Americans made up the same share of the presidential electorate in 2012 as they did twelve years earlier, 42 percent.” The eight percentage point drop that Pew found comes primarily from people who weren’t serious about faith in the first place. They didn’t attend regular services, and religious faith wasn’t a big deal in their lives. Also, the old line, extremely liberal denominations continue their decline. The percentage of Americans who identify themselves as “evangelical” and/or “born again” has remained constant for a long time. That’s good news and bad. It means we’re keeping up with population growth, but not making much headway. So, it may not seem like a big deal that a few seculars stopped calling themselves Christian. But there are some disturbing factors for America. While some of the nation’s founding fathers and mothers were full-on followers of Jesus, others weren’t. What you find on close examination, though, is that in almost every case, non-believing leaders from that era in U.S. history expressed a world view that was essentially Biblical. They respected Christians and the Bible, and even if they didn’t embrace all of the Bible’s teachings, they saw it as a source of moral guidance. Secularism has fallen a long way since then. Today, the animosity of the anti-Christian, anti-Bible crowd takes your breath away. To get a glimpse of their vitriol, read the comments section on internet articles that deal with these issues. It’s all too easy to imagine some of these people cheering for the lions as they rip Christians to pieces. What would happen if Christian-haters came to be the majority, or even close to it? That’s not just a hypothetical question. We can look at history to get an idea. The French Revolution was not only a revolt against the monarchy, but against the Catholic Church. They outlawed Christianity. They stole Notre-Dame Cathedral and turned it into a “Temple of Reason.” Accounts written at the time tell of debauchery going on there that was anything but reasonable. After that, the magnificent structure was turned into a wine warehouse. It wasn’t used again as a house of worship for several decades. Similar things happened to churches all over the country during those years. In the 20th century, scores of communist countries took the ultimate step toward secularization and became officially atheist. The results were similar to those in revolutionary France. It turns out that atheism is not a tolerant or benevolent belief system. They killed, tortured, persecuted, and repressed Christians in all sorts of ways. To be fair, governments pushing religion have also been disastrous at various times in history. But American history shows a remarkable balance — tolerance and even good will for believers and unbelievers alike. Now, even though a remarkably high 71% of the nation’s adults claim to be Christians, the faith of Christ is viewed in negative ways by the media and academia. The word “Christian” began as a pejorative when it was first used at Antioch in the early days of the faith. Today the word is regaining its old taint. Without a new Great Awakening, the percentage of self-identified Christians will continue to go down. But my biggest concern is about the real Christians. There are enough of us that if we refused to watch certain kinds of television programs, most of those shows would disappear. But we rarely even complain. Christians make many of the same secular lifestyle choices as their atheist, agnostic, and “nothing in particular” neighbors. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” [Matthew 5:14 NASB] I’ll be talking more about this poll and the implications of it on The Hal Lindsey Report that will be airing this weekend on TBN, Daystar, Word, and other outlets.

Calls mount for investigation into massive Tijuana River sewage spill

Lawmakers, regulators and environmental groups in San Diego County are calling on federal officials to investigate a massive sewage spill in the Tijuana River that some people believe Mexico may have intentionally caused and then refused to explain much about it. Mexican authorities have yet to give a full accounting of how, without advance notice, an estimated 143 million gallons of effluent spewed into the river during 17 days that ended on Feb. 23. The pollution flowed into South County and has continued to contaminate beaches as far north as Coronado. Signs posted along that entire stretch of coastline urge people to stay out of the water because toxins in the sewage can sicken or kill swimmers. After water-quality experts, environmentalists and elected officials made inquiries starting in mid-February, the U.S. side of the International Boundary and Water Commission said it received a brief summary from Mexico on Friday saying the discharge resulted from a project to repair a sewer pipe at the confluence of that nation’s Alamar and Tijuana rivers. Mexican agencies gave no alert of the pipe repair, their U.S. counterparts said. Baja California’s State Public Service Commission maintains the sewer-system infrastructure in the originating area. That agency and other Mexican officials have not responded to The San Diego Union-Tribune’s requests for comment since Monday. On Wednesday, Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina, San Diego Councilman David Alvarez, Coronado Mayor Richard Bailey, Rep. Scott Peters, D-San Diego, the clean-water group Wildcoast and the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation were among those calling on the International Boundary and Water Commission to launch an official investigation into the spill. As part of their campaign, they’re urging the public to gather at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at 301 Caspian Way in Imperial Beach to coordinate requests for the commission to launch a probe. The panel’s meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. in the same location. The commission’s U.S. side, which oversees international water treaties with Mexico, among other things, hasn’t said whether it will start a formal investigation. “There’s a deafening silence despite the crescendo of official complaints, and that’s just unacceptable,” said Dedina, who is also the head of Wildcoast. Alvarez, whose council district includes the Tijuana River Valley, also said the spill shouldn’t be tolerated. “The federal government needs to work with Mexico and … take the necessary steps to address this problem as soon as possible,” he said. Dave Gibson, executive officer of the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board, has said the discharge was likely no mistake. He has pushed for the International Boundary and Water Commission, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other federal regulators to look into the situation. “I strongly support an investigation, and I am formally calling on (federal officials) to conduct one immediately,” Gibson said. “Whether it is one gallon or 143 million gallons, sewage should never be discharged untreated into our water bodies. “After working years to improve cooperation and communication on border issues, it is deeply disturbing that (Baja California’s State Public Service Commission) … utterly failed to take any measures to contain or redirect the raw sewage back into the sewage system or provide any public notice whatsoever,” he added. Peters, whose 52nd congressional district includes Coronado, said: “This is not supposed to happen. I am very concerned about the damage this spill has done to our beaches and bays. As a member of the (House) Energy and Commerce Committee, I plan to speak with the EPA and other relevant federal agencies to get answers on how this happened, why we weren’t informed sooner and what steps need to be taken to ensure it never happens again.” Rep. Juan Vargas, whose 51st congressional district encompasses much of the coastline affected by the sewage spill, hasn’t said as of Wednesday afternoon whether he will join the call for further scrutiny. Depending on how much of the sewage is flushed out to sea by recent storms, toxic materials may persist along the region’s beaches into the spring and summer, according to the water quality board. For much of the past month, South County beaches had been closed because of run-off pollution generated by rainfall. San Diego County’s Department of Environmental Health expanded an existing beach closure on Tuesday because of sewage. The closure now includes the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge, Imperial Beach the Silver Strand and Coronado. Officials said warning signs will remain along the shorelines of those sites until the ocean is safe for recreational use.

Sessions Will Recuse Himself In Any Russia Probe

By Todd Beamon | Thursday, 02 Mar 2017 05:34 PM

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Thursday bowed to pressure from Republicans and Democrats alike and recused himself of any investigations into Russia's role in the presidential election — but he doubled down on whether he misled Congress in not disclosing two meetings with the Moscow ambassador last year. "I have decided to rescue myself from any present or future investigations of any matter relating in any way to the campaign of the president of the United States," Sessions told reporters at the Justice Department. He added that his announcement "should not be interpreted as confirmation of the existence of any investigation." The attorney general said he made his decision about recusal after his staff recommended that he step away from any investigation related to the Trump campaign, since he had been involved in the campaign. Sessions also slammed any suggestion that he tried to mislead the Senate Judiciary Committee in his January confirmation hearing on his Russian contacts. "That is not my intent," he said. "That is not correct." "The idea that I was part of a 'continuing exchange of information during the campaign between the Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government' is totally false." Sessions acknowledged, however, that he should have been more careful in his testimony. "I should have slowed down and said, 'But I did meet one Russian official a couple of times,'" he told reporters. He said Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente would handle such matters. Sessions has been under fire since The Washington Post and CNN reported Wednesday that the Justice Department said that he had met twice with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak last year. Sessions was the first sitting senator to endorse President Donald Trump's campaign last year, he was a member of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee at the time. He also sat on the Judiciary Committee. One meeting with the ambassador occurred in July during the Republican National Committee in Cleveland — and the other came in September in Sessions' office on Capitol Hill. The Justice Department has maintained nothing improper occurred in Sessions' contacts or his answers to Congress, while the continuing allegations of Russian interference in American politics ignited Democratic calls for the former four-term Alabama senator not only to recuse himself but to resign. The White House has stood behind Sessions throughout the controversy, with President Trump telling reporters in Virginia that he had "total" confidence in the attorney general and — adding that "I don't think so at all" when they asked him about recusal. In January, Sessions did not disclose the meetings in his confirmation hearing. He had been asked by Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota what he would do if "anyone affiliated" with the campaign had contact with Russian officials. Sessions replied that he had no communications with the Russians, and answered "no" in a separate written questionnaire when asked about contacts regarding the election. "Let me be clear," Sessions told reporters on Thursday. "I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign." Franken's question, he said, "had gotten my attention — and that was the question I responded to. "I did not respond by referring to the two meetings — one very brief after a speech and one with two of my senior staffers with the Russian ambassador in Washington — where no such things were discussed." Sessions said that his response to Franken's question "was honest and correct as I understood it at the time. "I appreciate that some have taken the view that this was a false comment," he added. "That is not my intent. That is not correct." The attorney general said that he would write the Judiciary Committee this week to "explain this testimony for the record." Democrats called for Sessions to resign, while Republicans said that he should recuse himself from any probe of Russian-related hacking during the election. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California accused the attorney general of "lying under oath" — and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York called for a special prosecutor for a Moscow probe. Meanwhile, more than a half dozen Republican lawmakers, including some who said they were personally close to Sessions, urged him to recuse himself from any Justice Department probe. "If there is an investigation, he probably shouldn't be the person leading it," Oklahoma Sen. Tom Cole said. "Jeff Sessions is a former colleague and a friend," Ohio Sen. Rob Portman said, "but I think it would be best for him and for the country to recuse himself from the DOJ Russia probe.” The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Is Sweden Safe? Military Draft Enacted Amid Russian Aggression, Security Fears

By Tom O'Connor @Shaolintom On 03/02/17 AT 9:42 AM

Sweden's defense minister announced Thursday the country would reintroduce mandatory military service next year as regional security fears were compounded by a shortage of soldiers. The northern European nation has remained largely neutral throughout the last two centuries of international affairs, but Russia's 2014 annexation of the former Ukrainian territory of Crimea and substantial, parallel military escalations between Moscow and NATO have sparked serious concerns over Sweden's defense capabilities should conflict break out. The country's Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist told local media that recent developments in Europe's geopolitical climate meant Stockholm could no longer rely on volunteers to man its armed forces. Sweden, which had male-only conscription until 2010, was set to begin recruiting 4,000 men and women out of about 13,000 candidates born in 1999 and 2000 as of the beginning of next year. The goal was to develop "full and practiced war units" capable of bolstering the existing volunteer system via the program that would cost an estimated $66 million. The number of compulsory troops would increase should the security situation continue to deteriorate in the region, according to Swedish broadcaster STV News. "The government wants a more stable staff supply system and to boost its military capability because the security situation has changed," Hultqvist told Sweden's TT news agency Thursday. A defense ministry spokesperson added that "Russian military activity is one of the reasons," according to BBC News. Russia annexed Crimea by a local referendum in March 2014 after claiming the Ukrainian revolution, which ousted pro-Moscow Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and reactionary forces threatened the largely Russian ethnic community in the region. Moscow then offered support to separatists in eastern Ukraine that have taken control of a number of cities and have routinely clashed with Ukrainian military forces. Russia's actions drew severe criticism from NATO and the U.S., by far the largest financial contributor to the international defense group, under former President Barack Obama. Obama urged allied nations to boost their NATO military presence along Russia's borders, prompting wide scale Baltic military drills from Moscow. While Sweden has not joined NATO, Russia's military escalation has affected the Scandinavian nation. Stockholm reported a number of airspace violations by Russian aircraft and expressed a desire to work closer with its Nordic neighbors, Norway and Finland, in matters of defense after questioning commitments by the governments of the U.K. and the U.S., according to the Financial Times. President Donald Trump, a political ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, criticized NATO members for not contributing enough to the alliance and has also criticized Swedish leadership for what he suggested was a soft stance on immigration and refugees, leading to an alleged wave of crime and unrest.

Fake Evangelicals Support Illegal Immigration to Make a Buck

Rev. Austin Miles February 24, 2017

We live in an era of fake news which meddles with our minds. But worse, we also have fake preachers who meddle with our very souls. That is Satan’s most dedicated tactic. To destroy the soul is to destroy the man. This is why the evil one has managed to infiltrate our churches, precisely to turn people off to church, ministers and especially….God. A full page ad in The Washington Post, Wednesday a week ago, included the signatures of over 500 evangelical pastors urging President Donald Trump to reverse his ban on refugee resettlement. A couple of the signers on that list shocked me. You will see the entire list below. Those ‘evangelicals’ seem to be suffering a deplorable lack of reasoning. Here is their statement: “As Christian pastors and leaders, we are deeply concerned by the recently announced moratorium on refugee resettlement. We have a historic call expressed over 2,000 years to serve the suffering. We cannot abandon this call now.” So bring them all in. Let them change our culture to theirs and give them full access to our wives and daughters, especially the very young ones. The organizer of the group letter is (another shock) the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), and one of the nine agencies that, now get this, resettle refugees in America. Notice that last part of the sentence….that resettle refugees in America. Doesn’t that sound like a line from a grant proposal? You bet it does. And that is precisely what this is all about. However, there is a small group of real pastors like Franklin Graham who are among the Remnant Pastors who are there for one purpose only, to preach the Gospel, not to enrich themselves with grants and other payola. He is joined by the National Religious Broadcaster’s Jerry Johnson and the Center for Law and Justice’s Jay Sekulow, who have spoken out, with clear heads, in defense of President Trump’s plan to protect our country. There are those who genuinely are, as the Wizard of Oz stated, “good deed doers.” Doing good for the sake of good. Then there are the do-gooders, who display themselves as good people by pushing favors upon others in order to make themselves look good and compassionate. Then there are those who camouflage their intentions by making it sound like a genuine humanitarian effort put together by caring people with a heart–as propagated by the fake news media, FNM. That’s what they want to convey…you can BANK on that-which is exactly what this do-gooder-for- profit relig-biz intends to do…bank on refugee re-settlement with the grant money they receive, enriching themselves personally while putting the rest of the United States in peril. Many of the ‘refugees’ are Muslims who slip in as ‘refugees’ so they can attack us from inside our borders, which has been taking place regularly. The FNM reports on this are very economical. This is what President Trump is trying to prevent. And we should be backing him. Let’s take another look at the religious groups competing for these grants: The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, World Relief, Church World Services, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Episcopal Migration Ministries, the International Rescue Committee, and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. Now here’s where it all meshes: When these groups send out their news releases making their case for more immigration, they fail to mention that they receive $2,050 for each ‘refugee’ they re-settle. But that is just a tiny part of the grants received for bringing in these people. Talk about conflict of interest! For sure it is not full disclosure. Yes, there are more grants to be had, hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars given to these impostors and their ‘altruistic’ organizations. They are not legitimate–NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. They are a very highly paid industry. But it gets even worse. All these religious groups must sign a federal waiver stating that they will not attempt to share the Gospel with the “refugees.” WHAT??? And preachers sign this? So again, this is NOT about doing God’s work, but engaging in activity that personally enriches these knuckle heads who pop up in righteous indignation over the protective actions of our president. It is clamp down time. These fake preacher creatures have sold the message of Jesus for mammon. That’s right, for money. When some of these refugees try to kill you, and they will, don’t expect God to protect you. You sold that protection by agreeing to NOT share the Gospel with the immigrants. Satan has bought you out. So when calamity strikes you, don’t yell, “Where’s God? Why did this happen?” ANSWER: You have forfeited any protection and favor from God since money was more important to you than preaching the Gospel. You actually sold out God and lost your soul in the process. Did you know that the U.S. Government has paid out over $1 Billion (with a B) to refugees as Social Security Benefits since (at least), 22,426 recipients have no Social Security Number? And did you know that each of these imposing immigrants who crash through our borders receive $1700 a month for welfare? They also get housing, food stamps, medical expenses and educational costs? MEANWHILE, a veteran who has fought in two wars and was awarded medals receives $1200.00 a month. Isn’t there something wrong with this picture? Back to the preachers: Yes, seminaries and churches have been infiltrated by groups specifically to destroy trust in the church. An overwhelming number of preachers are impostors. They are misfits who CHOSE the ministry as a career option or, were maneuvered in like Obama to the Oval Office. The uncalled preachers are the cog in the wheel. The true ministers, the Remnant Pastors, are those who have been called to the ministry. There is a HUGE difference. And thereby hangs the problem. Pastors, preach the uncompromising Word of Jesus. Preachers, MAN YOUR PULPITS. Parishioners, back up your pastor…however, if you see him or her fiddling with the Word of God, RUN, don’t walk, out the doors of that deception and don’t look back. Career Choice Preachers: You have no idea what damage you are causing. Do not dabble in Holy things, which is accumulating an eternal debt that you WILL have to pay. It is better that you flee the ministry without looking back than to be sentenced to hell. And for God’s sake, people, the majority of the people of The United States voted Donald Trump in as our President. He was genuinely elected to that highest office. This columnist believes that God Himself made certain that he won for the sake of America. Let us back him in every way possible. Write letters to the editors to confront any anti-Trump stories. Make phone calls. We must be ready to fight for our country. Insist upon traitorous and sedition charges be filed against George Soros who is the puppet master for all the evil taking place in our society today. And, one more time: Pastors, man your pulpits! Career choice pastors, run. One non-called career minister can do more damage to the cause of Christ than 10,000 if the most skilled atheists.

FAKE GOSPEL PRODUCES FAKE CHRISTIANS

By Coach Dave Daubenmire February 23, 2017 NewsWithViews.com

Fake News is all of the rage in the American culture today. In fact, it is an issue that we have been dealing with at least since the 1960’s. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, the problem is not so much what Americans believe, but that so much of what they believe simply is not true. Lies rule the day. We are truly in the days where the Scriptures warn us “everyone is doing what is right in his own eyes.” It is not than we are uninformed…but that we are miss-informed. So much of what we believe simply is not true. There was a day in America when it was considered dishonorable to tell a lie. The almost universal sense of right and wrong used to demanded honesty in all of our dealings. Those were old-fashioned days with old-fashioned values…you know…when people were actually identified by their sins. Liar, thief, adulterer, crook, were commonplace terms bantered across America’s dinner tables as our parents instructed us on what types of behaviors would not be accepted in our family. “You remember Bill Jones who opened the grocery store, don’t you? He didn’t stay in business long because word got round town that he was not an honest business man. He was putting his thumb on the scales when weighing the ground beef. Folks in this town do not take kindly to crooks.” That simple statement from my Dad carried a very valuable life lesson. Crooks would not be tolerated and the certainly would not have the support of the townspeople. Today, using those adjectives to describe people are no longer acceptable. We have exchanged those diabolical descriptions for nice sounding words like “miss spoke”, “ladies man”, and “public servant.” Heck, today even baby murder is called choice, those who kill the babies are called doctor, and the murder itself is called healthcare. Fake words. Fake words lead to fake behaviors. Fake behaviors lead to fake laws. Fake laws lead to fake justice. Fake justice leads to fake liberty. Fake liberty leads to a fake God. A fake god leads to a fake Christians. Jesus said that people have eyes and ears yet they can't discern reality (Truth). We are in the mess we are in today because most of what you hear from your local churches is fake. The Fake Gospel has lead to the destruction of this once-Christian nation. I am not so worried about the Fake News being reported in the news media today. Fake news is nothing more than the bastard child of the Fake Gospel. I am far less worried about the lies of CNN than I am the lies of the pulpit that make the act of lying more palatable to the masses. Permit me to expose five lies (there are more) that have given cover to the miscreants in our midst and has given us churches full of Fake Christians. 1. We are all God’s children. I have no idea where this dastardly lie came from but nothing could be further from the truth. Although we were CREATED in the image of God only those who carry the name of Christ are His children. In fact, in more than one place in the Scriptures we are told that the Devil has children and many of us are in the Devil’s ancestral tree. No where in Scripture will you ever find the lost being called God’s children. Google it. 2. Jesus loves everyone. This one always makes me want to gag. Although the most famous Scripture in the world John 3:16 tells us that God so loved THE WORLD, you will have a hard time finding a verse that says that the love of Jesus is universally applied. It is universally AVAILABLE…but the love of Christ is conditional. WHOSOEVER is not a term that INCLUDES everyone, but rather is EXCLUSIVE in nature. Jesus loves HIS CHILDREN…not the Devil’s childrenalthough HIS love is available to them. “God hates all workers of iniquity.” WATCH. I think that refers to those who actively and purposefully engage in disobedience to God…which is called sin. 3. Christians are not supposed to judge. One of the first things Michele and I tried to teach our children was the ability to judge between good and evil. All people, if they have a lick of sense, make thousands of judgments a day. That is why we are often told that we used “good judgment” or “bad judgment”. Judgment is nothing more than the ability to differentiate between good and evil, right and wrong. When we point out BAD BEHAVIOR we are judging the ACTION not the person. Homosexual behavior is bad. Getting an abortion is bad. “Woe to those who call good evil and evil good.” That comes from the Bible. How can you determine good from evil if you don’t judge? 4. Jesus accepts you just the way you are. Sorry. Not true. You can come to Jesus “the way you are” but you cannot remain in relationship with Him if you continue to live in the condition in which you came to Him. Jesus requires confession, repentance, and a turning away from your evil ways. Accepting Jesus gives you “the power to become children of God”…it doesn’t automatically MAKE YOU a child of God. "Not everyone who saith unto me Lord Lord shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven." Only those who “do His Will” become His children. Jesus transforms you into a new creature…he crucifies the old one. You die and He lives. You are no longer you…but CHRIST takes up residence in you. He loves you so much he commands YOU to die. 5. Jesus died for your sins. Well…sorta. I John 3:8 tells us that “FOR THIS PURPOSE was the Son of God manifest that he might destroy the works of the Devil.” Jesus died to destroy sin…the Devil’s work…and sin’s power in the world. Your, and my, salvation is a result of Him destroying the power of sin over the world. Because Jesus died, and because I have received Him as Lord, sin, death, hell, and the grave no longer have power over me. Sin, death, hell, and the grave are the works of the Devil. Jesus destroyed their power over me. I have accepted His finished work at Calvary and have applied His blood to my sin-sick life. He redeemed me…paid my price…and rescued me from the “law of Sin and death”…the soul that sins it shall die. Jesus died to destroy the power of sin in the world. My salvation is the fruit of that death, but He didn’t, as the song says, “Have me on His mind” when He went to the cross. “It IS FINISHED” He declared as he hung on the tree. What was finished? His purpose for coming...the destruction of the Devil’s works. Watch out for the Fake Gospel. It leads to Fake Christians. It is far more dangerous than Fake News.

American society headed toward a breaking point

By Michael Laitman February 23, 2017 10:36

If business people such as Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank must apologize for their conservative views for fear of losing business, this is not liberalism and certainly not pluralism. This is tyranny. A little over a week ago, Bill O’Reilly of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News slammed the twisted reporting of the deportation of illegal immigrants who were convicted felons, showing how the media portrayed them as innocent “maids, moms, and shopkeepers.” He said that this exemplifies how the media coverage of President Trump is beyond biased; it is “blatant dishonesty.” Mr. O’Reilly, whose program is “routinely the highest-rated show of the three major US 24-hour cable news television channels,” concluded the item declaring, “There is a radical element [the radical left] in this country that wants to destroy it. If this continues, there will be a breaking point.” As harsh as this threat sounds, judging by the relentless attempts of the Democrats to sabotage Trump’s efforts to man key positions, the media’s slew of warped and made up stories purporting to prove the president’s incompetence, through the army of on-the-ground agitators that Obama’s Organizing for Action has dispatched in order to disrupt every town-hall meeting in the country and create the pretense that the nation is with the Democrats, it seems that there is indeed a war against the president on multiple fronts. It is not a question of policy; it is a question of identity. Donald Trump recently deported 680 convicted criminals, and the media was up in arms over the deportation of “innocent people,” as they called them. Where was the media when Obama, to whom immigrants referred as “Deporter-in-Chief,” drove out 2.5 million people during his tenure, the majority of whom were without any criminal record? And where was the outcry when it became known that Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, sold one fifth of US uranium to Russia, and that she and her husband, Bill Clinton, personally profited from the deal? The media were silent because Obama and Clinton were the guardians of power for a small ruling elite that wants to dominate the US. A president who does not comply with their dictates does not serve their interests and there is no telling what they will do to remove him from office. For now, they are using a bogus, humanistic agenda such as caring for the immigrants and backing the Obamacare program to promote their goal of ousting Trump, but there is no reason to believe that they will stop there. The Necessity of Diversity Liberalism in itself is a noble idea. Following World War II, numerous countries in the West adopted the Liberal agenda as a “vaccine” against fascism and Nazism. However, a society cannot be vital and vibrant unless many different views vie against one another and in the process become polished and refined. When all the parties understand that diversity of views creates vitality, they strengthen their society and increase its ability to cope with changes. Our own Jewish tradition encourages diversity and debate as a means to enhance social cohesion. Martin Buber wrote in Nation and World: “It is not neutrality that we need, but rather cohesion, cohesion of mutual responsibility. We are not required to blur the boundaries among the factions, circles, and parties, but rather share a recognition of the common reality and to share the test of mutual responsibility.” Likewise, the great Rav Kook wrote (Orot Hakodesh), “Near the end of days, the quality of unity will surface in the nation… This quality is immersed in pool of strife and discord, but its content is paved with love and wondrous unity.” For generations, Jewish leaders taught their disciples that conflict of views is a means for finding the ideal solution and strengthening social cohesion. The Talmud writes that “A father and son who engage in Torah become each other’s enemies, yet they do not move from there until they return to loving one another” (Kidushin 30b). The Zohar, too, writes (Aharei Mot), “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to also sit together. These are the friends as they sit together, and are not separated from each other. At first, they seem like people at war, wishing to kill one another. Then they return to being in brotherly love. …And you, the friends who are here, as you were in fondness and love before, henceforth you will also not part … And by your merit there will be peace in the world.” The Inevitable Evil Yet, the American society has denied the legitimacy of “other parties,” as Buber put it. “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” said British Liberal MP Sir John Dalberg-Acton. Liberalism has been the sole “legitimate” agenda for decades now, but instead of using it to create a vibrant arena of views that invigorate one another, it has become a stifling mechanism by which anyone who contradicts what the media deems true is shamed and bullied. If business people such as Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank feel that they must apologize for stating their honest, very mildly conservative views for fear of losing business, this is no longer liberalism and certainly not pluralism. This is tyranny. Beneath a guise of free speech, America has become a fascist country, where only one view is permitted. But if “absolute power corrupts absolutely,” then this is to be expected. “The inclination of man's heart is evil from his youth” (Gen 8:21) is not merely a verse from the Torah. It is who we all are. This is why rulers need the media to monitor them, and why the media needs to be kept genuinely free and pluralistic. This is not the situation in America. Neoliberalism, which has destroyed Europe through immigration, and nearly destroyed the US by eliminating its middle class, has been the sole ruling agenda in the US for decades. It serves the interests of the small elite group of magnates who control the American economy, the media, and thereby the government, all the way up to the White House. They determine what is reported and what is not, who is defamed and who is glorified. By controlling the media, they have dominated public discourse, public opinion, and have avoided criticism. This is ingenious, but deadly to society. Their best interest is not the best interest of the American people. They aspire for world domination. Through proxies such as Obama and Clinton, they “removed” Arab leaders such as Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, and Bashar Assad, destroyed their countries, and created an influx of migrants into Europe. It is not that these Middle Eastern tyrants are or ever were anything to admire, but if you look at Iraq, Libya, and Syria today, would it not have been better for their people if their tyrants had remained in place, rather than the ruin, death, hunger, and terrorism that is their daily reality today? If the people driving the “liberal” agenda in Europe maintain control over their governments, it will not be long before Europe accepts Sharia law. As this sad story of a forced child marriage shows, this is already happening, but it will spread much faster if they succeed. And what they have done to Europe, they will continue in America: This same group will allow unchecked influx of migrants into the US, who will drain the already overstretched welfare system, create an impossible conflict of cultures and faiths, which will result in extremism and subsequent bloodshed on both sides. And all this will be done in the name of liberal thinking, pluralism, humanism, and democracy. On the Side of Correction It may appear as though I am in complete support of President Trump and against the Democratic Party. In truth, I have no personal affinity for any particular person or agenda. I do have great affinity for diversity above which people can connect since diversity keeps society cohesive, agile, and healthy, and keeps the country strong. At the moment, President Trump represents this view quite well, and the Democratic Party, with its undisputed monarch Barack Hussein Obama, absolutely does not. I regard Trump’s victory as a sign that the American society is still alive and kicking. It gives me hope that it will also be able to go through the necessary sobering up without bloodshed and without dragging the world into another war. If Clinton had been elected, there is no doubt that war would have erupted. Russia, America, and Europe were already making preparations on the ground. Now, at least there is a chance for peace and the correction of society. But to correct society, all parties will need to learn from the Jewish tradition—that “love covers all crimes” (Prov 10:12). Rav Yehuda Ashlag, author of the Sulam (Ladder) commentary on The Book of Zohar, wrote in his essay, “The Freedom”: “Just as people’s faces differ, so their views differ. Therefore, society is cautioned to preserve the freedom of expression of the individual. Each individual should maintain his integrity, and the contradiction and oppositeness between people should remain forever, to forever secure the progress of the free society.” Liberals would do well to listen to their own “coreligionist” Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times who wrote, “We progressives could take a brief break from attacking the other side and more broadly incorporate values that we supposedly cherish—like diversity—in our own dominions.” At the moment, Trump cannot end the war with the media and the Democrats because he is not the one waging it. For things to calm down, the media and the Democratic Party must decide that the best interest of their country comes before that of their party, or even that of their financiers. If this war does not stop, then either the media will be severely restricted going forward and American democracy will be hampered, or the next leader America’s political right sends forward will likely be one who will truly galvanize the conservatives in America, and “there will be a breaking point,” as O’Reilly put it. For America’s sake and for the sake of the world, I pray that this great nation wakes up and understands the value of diversity, the benefit of honing views through open debate, and the powerful cohesion attained when that debate yields solutions that contribute to the thriving of the whole of society.

Family Christian has announced they will closing all 240 retail locations after 85 years in business. This unfortunate closing will impact 3,000 workers and 36 states according to this Econ Times report.

Family Christian is announcing today it will close its doors – after 85 years in business. Changing consumer behavior and declining sales led the world’s largest retailer of Christian themed merchandise to make the difficult decision to close. Family Christian is a not-for-profit business that employs more than 3,000 people and operates over 240 retail locations in 36 states, nationwide. Family Christian Ministries has provided humanitarian aid for more than 14 million orphans, widows and oppressed people across the globe. “We had two very difficult years post-bankruptcy,” said Chuck Bengochea, company President. “Despite improvements in product assortment and the store experience, sales continued to decline. In addition, we were not able to get the pricing and terms we needed from our vendors to successfully compete in the market. We have prayerfully looked at all possible options, trusting God’s plan for our organization, and the difficult decision to liquidate is our only recourse.”

President Trump: Replace The Dollar With Gold As The Global Currency To Make America Great Again

Ralph Benko , Contributor Feb 25, 2017 @ 09:00 AM

Inside President Trump’s otherwise “standard Trump stump speech” at CPAC was nestled what might be a most intriguing observation: Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good, it’s very important. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I’m representing. There's a keen insight in there that could, just maybe, transform our lives, America, and the world. No "global currency?" Was this, with the poetic observation that “there is no such thing as a global anthem…or a global flag,” just a trope? Or could it contain a political portent with potential high impact on world financial markets? Let’s drill down. As it happens, there is a global currency. It’s called the "U.S. dollar.” Most international trade is priced in dollars. The Bretton Woods international monetary system invested the dollar, which then was defined as and (internationally) was legally convertible to gold at $35/oz, with global currency status. France’s then-finance minister, later its president, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, called the “reserve currency” status of the dollar -- its status, along with gold, as global currency -- an “exorbitant privilege.” By this d'Estaing was alluding to the fact, as summarized at Wikipedia, that "As American economist Barry Eichengreen summarized: 'It costs only a few cents for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to produce a $100 bill, but other countries had to pony up $100 of actual goods in order to obtain one.'" That privilege, which made great sense during the period immediately after World War II, became a curse. In 1971 President Nixon, under the influence of his Svengali-like Treasury Secretary John Connally, "suspend[ed] temporarily the convertibility of the dollar into gold." That closure proved durable instead of temporary. The dollar became, and remains, the world's global currency. What had been an “exorbitant privilege” devolved into an exorbitant liability. As my former professional colleague John D. Mueller, of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, formerly Rep. Jack Kemp's chief economist, writing in the Wall Street Journal in Trump's Real Trade Problem Is Money recently and astutely observed: a monetary system based on a reserve currency is unsustainable, since foreign official dollar reserves (for example) are acquired and must be repaid in goods. In other words, the increase in official dollar reserves equals the net exports of the rest of the world, which means it must also equal U.S. international payments deficits—an unsustainable situation. In other words, if President Trump wishes to address America’s merchandise trade deficit (balanced to perfection, of course, by a capital accounts surplus) he will find that allowing the dollar to be used as the global currency is the real snake in the economic woodpile. The dollar’s burden as the international reserve currency, not currency manipulation by our trading partners or bad treaties, is the true villain in the ongoing melodrama of crummy job creation. Mueller’s Wall Street Journal column enumerates the three options open to President Trump: First, muddle along under the current “dollar standard,” a position supported by resigned foreigners and some nostalgic Americans—among them Bryan Riley and William Wilson at the Heritage Foundation, and James Pethokoukis at the American Enterprise Institute. Second, turn the International Monetary Fund into a world central bank issuing paper (e.g., special drawing rights) reserves—as proposed in 1943 by Keynes, since the 1960s by Robert A. Mundell, and in 2009 by Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People’s Bank of China. Drawbacks: This kind of standard is highly political and the allocation of special drawing rights essentially arbitrary, since the IMF produces no goods. Third, adopt a modernized international gold standard, as proposed in the 1960s by Rueff and in 1984 by his protégé Lewis E. Lehrman …and then-Rep. Jack Kemp. To “muddle along” would, of course, be entirely antithetical to Trump’s promise to Make America Great Again. It would destroy his crucial commitment to get the economy growing at 3%+ -- vastly faster than it has for the past 17 years -- which also happens to be the recipe for robust job creation and upward income mobility for workers. It also is the essential ingredient for balancing the federal budget while rebuilding our infrastructure and military. To turn the IMF into a world central bank would, of course, be anathema to Trump’s economic nationalism. To subordinate the dollar to the IMF’s SDR would be equivalent to lowering Old Glory and replacing the American flag with the flag of the United Nations on every flagpole in America. Unthinkable under a Trump administration. That leaves the third option, to “adopt a modernized international gold standard, as proposed in the 1960s by Rueff and in 1984 by his protégé Lewis E. Lehrman … and then-Rep. Jack Kemp” (whose eponymous foundation I advise). To this one should add, as Forbes.com contributor Nathan Lewis has shrewdly observed, the removal of tax and regulatory barriers to the use of gold as currency. As I have repeatedly observed Donald Trump shows a strong affinity for gold. He has also shown a keen intuitive grasp of how the gold standard was crucial to having made America great: Donald Trump: “We used to have a very, very solid country because it was based on a gold standard,” he told WMUR television in New Hampshire in March last year. But he said it would be tough to bring it back because “we don’t have the gold. Other places have the gold.” Trump’s comment to GQ: "Bringing back the gold standard would be very hard to do, but boy, would it be wonderful. We’d have a standard on which to base our money." Trump has been misled to believe that “we don’t have the gold. Other places have the gold.” In fact, the United States, Germany, and the IMF together have about as much gold as the rest of the world combined and America has well more than Germany and the IMF combined. [Note: This column has been updated to clarify that the United States has well more gold than Germany and the IMF combined but not, as originally stated, more than twice as much.] We have the gold. Bringing back the gold standard would not be very hard to do.

"In The Name Of Fairness", A Very Touchy Subject…

Posted February 25th, 2017 at 9:57 PM (CST) by Bill Holter & filed under Bill Holter.

When it comes to the latest US stance vis-a-vis China’s currency manipulation, the jury is out, and based on two recent statements it is more confused than ever. Religion and politics, are both hot button issues no matter how you slice it, touchy subjects, if you will. Speaking, or writing about them, usually elicits rage, or anger …especially when they are mentioned together, or connected. Un-noticed by most is a ground shaking occurrence, whereby these two highly explosive issues are being joined at the hip. I do not want to anger anyone over their beliefs, so what I write below is entirely my observations of what is seemingly non-apparent to the financial community and to the public at large. The issue at hand is a potential game changer; negotiations between the two largest holders of gold in the world; “a deal between china and the vatican”. It was reported yesterday… the Pope has been in talks with China to advance, or bring into the open the Catholic Church’s presence in China; aka Christianity within the nation. First, I highly doubt these talks are still in the preliminary stages. Rather, the reported negotiations are probably more of a “trial balloon” to a done deal, substantially already made. As you can see here, there is dissent and fear regarding any deal made. I deeply believe, that on the surface, the “public” side of the argument has far more meaning than meets the eye, maybe I am being too cynical, but I have given what I present here with considerable thought. I have a potential theory, if it is incorrect so be it, but the topic is certainly worth exploring in depth. Some background; you may remember, that in the middle of last year we had a number of world leaders (including President Xi, Obama and the Pope) publicly mention a common refrain, about a “more equal and fair world, as well as a more equal distribution of wealth in the world”? BINGO!…I took these statements to be a veiled warning, of an upcoming “reset” among nations and peoples, whereby the rich, those country’s on the Dollar Standard, would lose wealth and purchasing power to those countries who’s standard of living suffered under Dollar Inflation (the poor). The most obvious way to accomplish this is seemingly a strategic move to reorganize the world trading standard, or even abolishing the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This makes sense, as I view it, because the U.S. (West) has advantages when it comes to standard of living via borrowing or outright printing money to consume other countries productivity and natural resources. Please keep this thought in mind while reading further. No matter what you hear or read about China being a “capitalistic” nation, their roots are Marxist, Socialist, or whatever term you would like to use. “Free market capitalists” they are not, THESE ARE COMMAND ECONOMIES. Judging from many statements by the Pope, he is also a socialist and as mentioned,…has also spoken of a “more equal and fair distribution of wealth in the world”. From a political ideology standpoint, the Vatican’s influence under a Jesuit Pope and China ruled by an appointed leader are in many ways very close in their world views, in my opinion. So, what to make of all this? Is the Pope trying to spread Catholicism and China openly embracing it, or is this happening tied to something much, much deeper in fact? Let’s take a step back and look at a couple of commonalities they each hold. First, they each have, or reach, a huge population of over 1 billion people in some form or another. Combined, Catholics and Chinese represent roughly two of every seven people on the planet, or close to 30%. Let’s call this a huge base, for lack of a better term. Secondly, and much more important, though not “official”, China is THE largest holder of gold on the planetfollowed by none other than; The Vatican! Yes, you may tell me the U.S. is “THE” largest holder of gold, with 8,100 tons and you would be “officially” correct …but wrong in reality, as explained many times prior, as the Fed and Treasury continue to resist an audit of same. On the back of a napkin I can show China accumulating 20,000 tons or more. (You might also not agree the Vatican is a large holder of gold, I would ask, and how exactly were they paid during WWII to aid the travels and passports of refugees?) By the way, Franz Pick said before he died, The Vatican held more gold than anyone could imagine. I can “imagine”. Do you see the dots connecting here, between China and The Vatican? My assumption is, there is now a joining of the world’s two economic giants, both in size and wealth, which the last I knew equals “power”! Seemingly this coming together by these powerful forces gives rise to the old axiom; “He Who Has the Gold Makes the Rules.” Now I have to venture, is this rapprochement between the Vatican and China part and parcel of a New World Currency Order, whereby the yuan becomes the concentric world reserve currency, in some fashion, tied to the International Monetary funds Special Drawing Right (SDR)? Maybe, but who really wants that albatross around their neck? History has seen nation after nation assume world currency status only to be hollowed out financially and economically after years of abusing the privilege. I theorize that China and The Vatican will revalue gold to levels unattainable by individuals and making it very difficult for sovereign treasuries and/or central banks to catch up. As the largest holders, they can effectively “make the price” … the higher they make it, the greater their wealth (and thus power)! I have to ask… What if China marks up gold but does not assume reserve currency responsibilities? What if they mark up gold and let the markets decide what each “currency” is worth …versus gold …based on how much gold held? Please understand this…China has been financially abused by the West for centuries. Silver was devalued at the turn of the 20th century as a way to impoverish China as they were a Silver Nation. If the above is correct, or even close, and gold is revalued, then what will happen to the exchange ratio of silver to gold? Will the current 70-1 ratio hold or will silver be priced closer to God’s ratio of closer to 10-1? As a side note, do you still wonder why President Trump has called China the “Grand master of currency manipulation”? Does he have a head’s up, or inkling, that a reset is in the works? I suspect he does. If this theory is correct, at least we will have a true American as president and working on our behalf as opposed to a leader giving up the keys to the kingdom and throwing its people under the bus in the name of “fairness”? The “One World Government,” or “New World Order Types” as they identify themselves, are strongly opposed to the individual liberty movement rearing it’s head here there and everywhere. Seemingly, the “people” have thrown a monkey wrench into their plans for a One World Order; here and there and everywhere. Populism to them is like a rapidly spreading cancer, that must be stopped dead in it’s tracks. My assumption is; THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO BE HUNG ON A CROSS OF GOLD.

The reason why is that shortly after Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said in a Bloomberg TV interview that there is “no urgency to brand China a currency manipulator”, and that no announcement on currency manipulation will come before the Treasury’s April report (which contradicted an October pledge by candidate Donald Trump to direct his Treasury secretary to name China a manipulator on the first day of his administration), hours later Reuters released an interview with Trump in which he accused China of being a “grand champion” at currency manipulation, adding he had not “held back” in his assessment that China manipulates its yuan currency. “I think they’re grand champions at manipulation of currency. So I haven’t held back. We’ll see what happens.” This morning China responded Trump’s accusation, when Beijing said it has no intention of using currency devaluation to its advantage in trade, which presumably excludes China’s August 2015 devaluation which unleashed a period of acute market volatility. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said he hoped the United States could “fully and correctly” view the exchange rate issue.

The Post-Human World

A conversation about the end of work, individualism, and the human species with the historian Yuval Harari

Athit Perawongmetha / Reuters Derek Thompson Feb 20, 2017

Famine, plague, and war. These have been the three scourges of human history. But today, people in most countries are more likely to die from eating too much rather than too little, more likely to die of old age than a great plague, and more likely to commit suicide than to die in war. With famine, plague, and war in their twilight—at least, for now—mankind will turn its focus to achieving immortality and permanent happiness, according to Yuval Harari’s new book Homo Deus. In other words, to turning ourselves into gods. Harari’s previous work, Sapiens, was a swashbuckling history of the human species. His new book is another mind-altering adventure, blending philosophy, history, psychology, and futurism. We spoke recently about its most audacious predictions. This conversation has been edited for concision and clarity. First, work. You have a smart and scary way of looking at the political implications of mass automation. At the end of the 19th century, France, Germany, and Japan offered free health care to their citizens. Their aim was not strictly to make people happy, but to strengthen their army and industrial potential. In other words, welfare was necessary because people were necessary. But you ask the scary question: What happens to welfare in a future where government no longer needs people? Yuval Harari: It’s a very scary scenario. It’s not science fiction. It’s already happening. The reason to build all these mass social service systems was to support strong armies and strong economies. Already the most advanced armies don’t need [as many] people. The same might happen in the civilian economy. The problem is motivation: What if the government loses the motivation to help the masses? In Scandinavia the tradition of the welfare state is so entrenched that perhaps they’ll continue to provide welfare even for masses of useless people. But what about Nigeria, South Africa, and China? They have been encouraged to provide services mostly in the hope of advancing prosperity, [which requires] having a large basis of healthy and smart citizens. But take that away and you might be left with countries with elites who don’t care about the population. Thompson: The last point is interesting, because, in Europe and the United States, the opposite seems more true: The population doesn’t care about, or think it needs, the elite. That’s a part of how we got Trump and Brexit. Now you see these radical-right backlashes against the establishment sweeping across Europe. Why is this happening now? Harari: That’s the big question. I didn’t foresee it coming. It’s not my expertise to look at the political situation in the U.S. or in Europe. But if you look at the objective condition of health and so forth, most people in the U.S. and Western Europe have better conditions than they used to. But they feel like they are being pushed aside and losing power. And they fear their children will have a worse life than they do today. I think these fears may be justified. But I don’t think the antidote will work. Trump will not help Alabama voters regain their power. People’s happiness depends on their expectations, not their conditions. Thompson: Americans might be richer and better educated than they used to be a generation ago, with better health care and superior entertainment options. But the fact of progress doesn’t seem to matter. The story is all that matters. And the victorious Trump story was that America’s cities were falling apart and “I alone can fix it.” Harari: [White Americans without a college degree] are a declining class within a declining power. The U.S. is losing power compared to the rest of the world, and within the U.S., the Trump voters are losing their status. Even though they are experiencing better conditions, the narrative self which is dominant in most people tells a story of decline, which says that the future will be worse than the present. And most people’s happiness depends on their expectations, not their conditions. Thompson: Let’s say the future for most people is a universal basic income, wonderful psychedelic drugs, and virtual reality video games. People don’t starve. They aren’t miserable. But they also stop striving. The Walt Disney virtues—challenge yourself! go on an adventure!—are sacrificed to live permanently inside of Disney-style entertainment. Is that utopia or dystopia? Harari: Most philosophers will say that your hypothetical is a dystopia. A far worse world. But you could argue that people already spend most of their lives in virtual games. Most religions are virtual games superimposed on the reality of life. Do this, and there’s a penalty. Do that, and you get extra points. There is nothing in reality that corresponds to these rules. But you have millions of people playing these virtual reality games. So what is the difference between a religion and a virtual reality game? Recently I went with my nephew to hunt Pokémon. We were walking down the street and a bunch of kids approached us. They were also hunting Pokemon. My nephew and these children got into a bit of a fight because they were trying to capture the same invisible creatures. It seemed strange to me. But these Pokémon were very real to the children. And then it hit me: This is just like the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! You have two sides fighting over something that I cannot see. I look at the stones of buildings in Jerusalem and I just see stones. But Christians, Jews, and Muslims who look at the same stones see a holy city. It’s their imagination, but they are willing to kill for it. That’s virtual reality, too. Your hypothetical also raises a deep philosophical question: What is the meaning of life? Historically philosophers investigated questions that were interesting to only half a percentage of humankind. Thompson: Right. “What is ideal way to seek happiness?” isn’t a useful inquiry when the entire countryside is dying of plague.

Harari: Yes, but once you are free from considerations of famine and plague, this becomes a much more practical question: What is the meaning of life? If you design a self-driving car, you must design ethical algorithms in the case that it’s about to hit a child. Do you risk injury to the pedestrian, or the passenger? That is suddenly a very practical question. Philosophy, once an archaic system, becomes central once we take care of widespread death and misery. Thompson: Alright, let’s move from the end of work to the end of individualism. You have a beautiful way of summarizing human beings’ relationship with authority. First, we believed that authority came from the gods. But that belief has yielded to modern liberalism, which tells us that authority comes from individuals. Democracy says power comes from the voters, not the divine. Capitalism says the consumer is always right, not the Bible. Marketers say beauty resides in the eye of the beholder, not in platonic forms. But you have a ominous prediction that humans will merge with the computers, algorithms, and biochemical devices that make our lives better. We will yield our authority and identity to data and artificial intelligence. What invention or innovation in the world right now is the best example of this future? Harari: I like to begin with the simple things. Look at GPS applications, like Waze and Google Maps. Five years ago, you went somewhere in your car or on foot. You navigated based on your own knowledge and intuition. But today everybody is blindly following what Waze is telling them. They’ve lost the basic ability to navigate by themselves. If something happens to the application, they are completely lost. That’s not the most important example. But it is the direction we’re talking about. You reach a juncture on the road, and you trust the algorithm. Maybe the junction is your career. Maybe it’s the decision to get married. But you trust the algorithm rather than your own intuition. The most important invention that’s spreading now is biometric sensors. They may become ubiquitous. Humans will consult their biometric data to determine how to live. That is really interesting and scary stuff, because we will no longer be in charge of our identity. We will outsource our executive decisions to biometric readings of our neurochemical signals to decide how to live. Thompson: Here is how I understand this idea. It’s the future, and I’m hungry on a Friday night. I think, “I’d like fried chicken.” Then I consult my AI daemon, which can read by biochemical signals and predict my future emotions, and it says to me: “Actually, Derek, a chicken salad will make you happier.” So I eat salad. On a case-by-case basis, this technology seems wonderful. It’s making me so much healthier and happier. Technology is rescuing me from the natural errors of misreading my future wants and needs. But over time, “I” have disappeared, because I have outsourced my identity to a biochemical analyst. Harari: Yes, exactly. In this scenario, we will come to see that decisions don’t come from a mystical soul but from biological processes in the brain. In the past we couldn’t gather the data and analyze it. So you could imagine that there is a mystical, transcendental soul inside you making these decisions. From a practical perspective that was a good enough estimation. But once you combine a better understanding of the biochemical processes in the body with the computational power of big data then you have a real revolution, because this traditional notion of free will no longer make practical sense and you can have algorithm that make better decisions than an individual human. Thompson: That’s fascinating, because I now think of these algorithms as bringing me closer to myself. If a fitness tracker encourages me to run more, or an entertainment algorithm discovers a song I love, I’m happier. And I prefer myself happy. But over time, my decisions have been reduced to brain signals and brain signal readers. “I” am not special, or sacred, or even individual. I’m just a vessel for a bunch of signals that are best read by a computer. There is no room for “me” in that arrangement. Harari: What really happens is that the self disintegrates. It’s not that you understand your true self better, but you come to realize there is no true self. There is just a complicated connection of biochemical connections, without a core. There is no authentic voice that lives inside you. Have you seen Inside Out? For me this was the tipping point in popular culture’s understanding of the mind. For decades Disney sold us the liberal individualistic fantasy: Don’t listen to your neighbors or government, just follow your own heart. But then in Inside Out, you go inside this little girl Riley, and you don’t encounter a self or a core identity. What the movie shows to children and their parents is that Riley is a robot being manipulated by chemical processes inside her brain. The cataclysmic point in the story is your realize that none of the sources inside her are her true self. In the beginning you identify with Joy but the critical moment comes when you realize none of these emotions are Riley’s true self. It’s a balance between different sources. And I think this is what will happen more and more on a general level. The very idea of an individual that exists, which has been so precious to us, is in danger.

Is Genetic Engineering Recreating the Sin of Noah’s Generation?

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 21, 2017 , 11:30 am

New technology enabling scientists to manipulate genes, mixing human genes and organs with those of animals, is a disturbing trend in science which one rabbi believes mirrors the sin that led to global destruction in the generation of Noah. Last week, the National Academies of Sciences and Medicine released a new report including recommendations to ensure genetic research done in the United States is performed responsibly and ethically. In essence, this report gave the green light to gene research, even though funding for such research is currently banned by the government because of the ethical dilemmas it raises. The new technology bears with it practical risk. Genetic research can take two forms: gene editing to cure or prevent disease, and gene editing to enhance humans. Genetics is uncharted territory and scientists could accidentally introduce a dangerous mutation that will harm future generations, or, in an attempt to create vaccines, inadvertently create a superior form of the disease which could threaten mankind. Rabbi Moshe Avraham Halperin of the Machon Mada’i Technology Al Pi Halacha (the Institute for Science and Technology According to Jewish Law) stated in response to the report that there are clear Torah guidelines for this new technology. Rabbi Halperin referred to the Biblical law concerning mixing of species. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee. Leviticus 19:19 “It is forbidden to create a creature that is a mixture of species, but as long as they are not producing a new creature that has a different form, it is permitted,” Rabbi Halperin told Breaking Israel News. However, he noted, “Improving species, even the human race, is not forbidden by Jewish law. Changing the color of the skin or hair is permitted, even more so when it concerns removing genetic maladies. But the process certainly needs oversight.” Rabbi Yosef Berger, rabbi of the Tomb of King David on Mount Zion, stressed that the issue of mixing species had serious Biblical ramifications, noting that the verse forbidding mixing breeds of animals directly preceded a section of the Torah dealing with sexual impropriety. And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free. Leviticus 19:20 The rabbi explained the connection between the two distinct commandments. “This is also expressed in the sin of the generation of Noah, which, according to Jewish tradition was the forbidden mixing of animals and man,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News, quoting Genesis. And Hashem said: ‘I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and fowl of the air; for it repenteth Me that I have made them.’ Genesis 6:7 “Noah’s generation sinned sexually, but it was expressed in the mixing of species,” he explained. “This sexual sin could prevent the coming Messianic era as the connection between man and woman is a holy part of the process of bringing geula (redemption). This is the basis of the requirement to be fruitful and multiply: to bring Moshiach (Messiah).” Rabbi Berger stressed that this mitzvah (Torah commandment) requires a proper level of purity. Mixing of species is an improper manifestation of procreation that led to the destruction of the generation of Noah. Thus, even when saving lives, one of the most important mitzvot, one must be mindful of dangers and limits, Rabbi Berger cautioned. The limits of science and ethics are indeed being expanded and tested in remarkable ways. In 2015, several groundbreaking experiments took place in genetic engineering. A herd of cloned cattle, genetically engineered with human DNA, were used to incubate antibodies against the Ebola virus. In the same year, scientists at Duke University announced that they had successfully boosted brain size in mice by using human DNA as a catalyst. Also at Duke, kidneys from aborted human fetuses were transplanted into rats in order to determine if human organs could be grown in animals, solving the problem of organ donations. In one particularly disturbing case, geneticists in China modified the DNA of human embryos, concentrating on the gene responsible for β-thalassaemia, a potentially fatal blood disorder. However, in their final report, the researchers said they found a surprising number of unintended mutations. These experiments illustrate just some of the astounding areas researchers are exploring. The science involved is staggering, but the ethical considerations are even more perplexing, and less likely to receive clear-cut answers. Certain areas of research in the United States are stalled until the issue of abortions is resolved, establishing once and for all the legal status of fetuses and embryos. Manipulating genes in utero to eradicate genetic disease can alleviate great suffering, but brushes up against eugenics, the intentional improving of the human race. Negative eugenics were first espoused by the Nazis and other racist ideologies as a method of creating a master race. The research takes on dark spiritual overtones in the context of the growing transhumanism movement, which believes that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations by means of science and technology.

Here's What You Need to Know About the Massive 'Cloudbleed' Data Breach

Now's a good time to change some passwords.

PETER DOCKRILL 27 FEB 2017

A huge data breach that may have exposed users' private information and log-in details for thousands of websites was uncovered last week, in what looks to be the most significant internet leak of 2017 so far. Dubbed 'Cloudbleed' in reference to the notorious 'Heartbleed' breach in 2014, the leak stems from a bug found in code operated by web infrastructure company Cloudflare, which provides security and hosting services for thousands of major internet sites. Some of these clients are big-name web companies – including Uber, Yelp, Fitbit, and OkCupid – and due to a tiny but significant error in some of Cloudflare's code, sensitive user information from some of these sites was being randomly inserted into web pages when visited by other people. "For example, you could have visited a page on uber.com, and a chunk of memory from a previous request/response to okcupid.com would be returned," security consultant Andrew Tierney from UK-based Pen Test Partners told Forbes. "This sensitive data could have been returned to anyone. There was no need to carry out an active attack to obtain the data – my mum may have someone else's passwords stored in her browser cache just by visiting another Cloudflare-fronted site." The leak was discovered on February 17 by security researcher Tavis Ormandy from Google's Project Zero bug-hunting team, who was sifting through publicly available website data to look for any errors in the code. "It's not unusual to find garbage, corrupt data, mislabeled data, or just crazy non-conforming data… but the format of the data this time was confusing," Ormandy explained in a blog post detailing the issue. "In fact, the data was bizarre enough that some colleagues around the Project Zero office even got intrigued." What they found was evidence of snippets from user sessions on Cloudflare-hosted sites being randomly grabbed and replicated on other Cloudflare sites, including things like encryption keys, cookies, passwords, and other potentially sensitive information. "I didn't realise how much of the internet was sitting behind a Cloudflare CDN [content delivery network] until this incident," Ormandy said on February 19. "The examples we're finding are so bad… I'm finding private messages from major dating sites, full messages from a well-known chat service, online password manager data, frames from adult video sites, hotel bookings." Ormandy reached out to Cloudflare, which assembled an international team of engineers to fix the problem, and who were able to stop the bug in less than 7 hours. It's great that the parsing error is no more, but that's not the end of the problem. The leakage may have actually been active from as far back as 22 September 2016 – almost five months before Ormandy found it – and there's no way of knowing how many people's sensitive information was exposed in that time. In a blog post last week, Cloudflare CTO John Graham-Cumming explained that they hadn't detected any malicious activity resulting from the bug, but with nearly five months of exposed data in the wild, it's difficult to say how many user credentials may have been leaked. Adding to the problem, any exposed data could have been cached by search engine bots that index website code, meaning sensitive information could have been replicated far and wide, opening up even greater access to it. According to Cloudflare, the peak of the bug occurred between February 13 and February 18, with around one in every 3,300,000 HTTP Cloudflare requests potentially resulting in data leakage. That might sound like pretty good odds, but given the potential length of the leak – and that private data may have been cached elsewhere on the internet – now might not be a bad time to change some passwords if you think you may have been compromised. While there isn't an official list of affected services, a huge number of notable sites were exposed, including Uber, Yelp, Fitbit, OkCupid, the Pirate Bay, Change.org, Feedly, 4chan, and many more. You can search here to see if sites and services you use are on Cloudflare, and there's also an unofficial listing of the more than 4 million sites that could be affected here. While the overall level risk to any particular user is probably very low, a lot of personal data could have been leaked here, so it's a good idea to change your passwords for any potentially compromised sites. "Cloudflare has said the actual impact is relatively minor, so I believe only limited amounts of information were actually disseminated," security researcher and former Cloudflare employee Ryan Lackey wrote in a blog post. "Regardless, unless it can be shown conclusively that your data was NOT compromised, it would be prudent to consider the possibility it has been compromised." Of course, to minimise the potential risk of similar breaches (inevitably) happening in the future, make sure you don't use the same password across multiple sites. Since it's impossible to remember a huge number of passwords – given how many digital services we all uses these days – consider a password manager like LastPass or 1Password. Another good idea is to make sure you enable two-factor authentication on services that support it, which can protect your accounts even if your passwords do get out.

CONCERNING MY QUESTION TO NUCLEAR EXPERT ABOUT FUKUSHIMA AND WHO SET OFF NUKES THAT ALL THE READINGS ARE COMING FROM-- HERES HIS REPLY

Over a thousand Sv/ minute, kills rad hardened robots in minutes – I know a thing or 2 about that - all my space stuff was hardened, and I was the dept expert. That is an insane melt down!!! DO NOT eat ANY sea foods from the pacific – from Ak to southern SA. 1 Sv is a lethal dose for a human – U die in less than a month form that –so they cant send any human beenz in there at all. They would die in seconds at those levels. Here is that nuke in Ukraine – go to about 14 min and Watch that fireballk and rising white column of ‘smoke’… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgfBSFUePww 

There were 2 small tac nukes that went off in Ukraine area last week. That is likely where the I-131 is coming from over yooroop. Israeli news live covered it, at about 14 min the second one goes off. Fireball with WHITE cloud rising very high. TNT is black smoke, and does not have enough heat to rise that high. Not a weapons cache as there were no secondary explosions. This was about 2 miles away from the camera from the delay of the BOOM. Given the foreground things, it was BIG.Much bigger than a 750 lber. Which would have been BLACK, too. Feb 26, 2017

Mysterious Phenomenon 'Radiation Clouds' May Be Bringing 'Radioactive Rain' To America - 'Radiation Readings Off The Charts' As 'Constant Phoenix' Is Deployed To Europe

- 'And No One Knows Where The Radiation Comes From'

February 26, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The February 3rd story from New Scientist reports upon a newly discovered mysterious phenomenon that may pose a risk to air travelers: 'radiation clouds'. 'Danger zones' in the air where radiation levels surge to the point where they could pose an unrecognized health hazard, the NASA-funded Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety (ARMAS) program which discovered these puzzling anomalies say they can't be blamed upon the 'usual suspects', cosmic rays or solar winds. Warning within their story that airliners may have to avoid these 'radiation clouds' in the future, we recently received an email from Steve Quayle in which he shared with us his own experience of flying through one of these 'radiation clouds' showing 25X the normal 'background radiation levels' at 35,000 feet as seen in the photo below. We hear from Steve in the 1st video below in his latest QCast in which he tells us about that experience and what we can do to prepare and protect ourselves from dangerous radiation. He also mentions "Nuclear War Survival Skills" by Cresson H. Kearney which you can find in PDF form here. With even New Scientist admitting the existence of 'radiation clouds', we find it interesting that only days ago, Victurus Libertas reported that California and other parts of America might be getting hit by radioactive rain. The new story from ENENews reports that according to officials in Europe, the mysterious radiation cloud we reported about on ANP on February 23rd continues to spread with this additional warning: "This could indicate a leak from a nuclear plant". You can hear all about this spreading radiation cloud in the 2nd video below in which our videographer warns it continues to grow unchecked. Back in 2011, the day after the massive earthquake hit Fukushima, Japan, the US Navy launched Operation Tomodachi, a humanitarian aid mission to Japan that turned deadly after the ships involved sailed through a deadly 'radiation plume' for several hours. At least 318 sailors aboard the USS Ronald Reagan and other ships have since joined a billion-dollar class action lawsuit against the Tokyo Electric Power Company, TEPCO, for jnjuries suffered due to their radiation exposure. Sadly, some of the sailors children born after Operation Tomodachi are also suffering from the effects of radiation exposure. As Stars and Stripes reported back in March of 2016, 16 US ships that participated in those relief efforts after the nuclear disaster in Japan STILL remained contaminated 5+ years later with low levels of radiation according to a top US Navy official - that out of the 25 ships that took part in the 2011 operation. On February 23rd ANP reported upon the very mysterious spike in radiation that appeared to originate near the Arctic Circle and had alarmed experts after it was first detected in northern Norway this past December and then had spread to several country's in Europe. The Drive asked in a story if there had been a nuclear incident in the Arctic after increased levels of radioactive iodine isotopes had been detected across Europe. And with 'Constant Phoenix' (the US Air Force's 'sniffer' plane) now deployed, the mystery has deepened even further. As Greece's Tornos News reports, “Iodine-131 has recently been detected in tiny amounts in the ground-level atmosphere during week 2 of January 2017 in northern Norway. Iodine-131 was also detected in Finland, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain, until the end of January”. What might be causing the increased levels of radiation detected across Europe? According to this new story from Survival Dan, he reports fears are growing of a North Korea nuclear strike after 42 missile tests and several nuclear bomb tests over the past several years. Warnings have also been given that Russia may have conducted a nuclear test, which they deny, as well as the theory that nuclear plants may be leaking. A dirty bomb is also a possibility though much less likely. While the answer to what is causing this mysterious radiation across Europe is still unknown at this time, the health effects of radiation are well known and can be deadly in a very short period of time if a person is exposed to 'too much' of it. While a very large amount of radiation exposure (acute exposure), can cause sickness or even death within hours or days, such acute exposures are extremely rare according to the EPA. In the first video, Steve Quayle also takes a look at several of the different possibilities about what might be causing this mysterious radiation spike being measured across Europe as well as what may be the causes of the mysterious radiation clouds being detected now all across the Northern Hemisphere. Quayle begins his discussion of the radiation clouds at the 5 minute mark after sharing with us news of an exciting conference coming up in September of 2017 in Branson, Missouri that he will be participating in. Below videos we take a look at some of the health recommendations for people who are exposed to radiation. In the interesting 3rd video, one brave YouTube videographer takes a visit to 'ghost town' Fukushima, Japan, and gets as close to the Fukushima power plant as he can get. Showing us a Fukushima nearly 6 years after 'the event', he proves to us that radiation was still practically everywhere in Fukushima back in November of 2016. We also take a look here at an email that was recently sent to Quayle from a listener of his from Norway who shared with him news of absolutely bizarre weather in Norway, much like we're having here where the weather went from nearly 72 degrees on Friday to 10 degrees with snow on Saturday, this after a week of temperatures nearly 30 degrees above normal. Hi! I've been listening to your shows and reading your books for years. Listening to you going through events going on around the world i cant help to think about where i live and whats going on here. We are experiencing a winter with +celsius degrees. No snow, floods, rain showers. Usally its meters of snow and -5 -10 celsius.. Of course this is not the case in whole of norway but the overall temperature has risen way beyond. Also, a wave of radiation has been spreading throughout Europe since the mid of january starting in the northern Norway in Finnmark. Main stream media has been ignoring it. And no one knows where the radiation comes from. If you or your family is exposed to radiation, what can you do? There are certain treatments which can be used for radiation exposure, some mainstream medical and others completely 'alternative'. While there is no cure for radiation sickness, the symptoms that are associated with radiation poisoning are treated on a case by case basis since the degree of sickness and the symptoms vary from person to person. Surviving without doctors - nuclear war survival skills here. While the effects of radiation poisoning can't be reversed, the damage which it does can be contained if treatment begins in a timely manner. Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and weakness can be treated with specific medications designed to reduce these complaints. Blood transfusions may be needed to treat anemia and antibiotics to reduce the threat of infections. A bone marrow transplant may be required if one has experienced a massive doses of radiation. Death is usually immediate, but some people have survived with successful transplant surgery. The drug filgrastim is used in patients after chemotherapy to stimulate white blood cells and may be helpful in repairing damage to bone marrow. Camping Survival has an interesting key chain gadget with a radiation monitor and alarm for those who do not have a radiation monitor like Steve Quayle has. According to this story over at Natural News, natural treatments for radiation exposure include topical treatments, cleanses and homeopathy. We'd love to read any other suggestions readers might have in the comment section below. Topical Treatments Raw, organic honey possesses antibacterial properties and can reduce the severity of skin burns and lesions as well as lesson inflammation and ulcerations of the mucous membranes of the digestive tract. Calendula extract is a healing, soothing liquid that can be mixed with water and applied to relieve burns, sores, itching, peeling and other skin ailments resulting from exposure to radiation. Echinacea extract is rich in anti-inflammatory agents and acts as an antibiotic when applied to infected areas of the skin. It can be used in any skin ailment, especially those that become infected and septic. Cleanse Baking soda baths provide an excellent cleanse for removing radiation from body cells. Baking soda is highly alkaline and helps restore the body's pH, reducing the incidence of acidosis -- a state that fosters weakness and disease. Drinking baking soda mixed with water may help reduce inflammation and heal mouth sores resulting from exposure to radiation. Homeopathy Clinical experience has shown the efficacy of several homeopathic remedies for the treatment of radiation disease symptoms. Cadmium sulphuratum may relieve itching, gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea aggravated by the slightest movement, and severe flu-like aches and pains in the muscles. The person needing this remedy may feel chilled even in a warm room. Phosphorus is often the first remedy needed after exposure to radiation. It can help reduce the pain and intensity of burns to the skin as well as lessen vomiting and other stomach upsets. A dose of Phosphorus may help center someone after being exposed, enable them to cope. People needing Phosphorus are often very thirsty for ice-cold water, which is vomited when becoming warm in the stomach. Radium Bromatum may help people with severe aching, arthritic pains that are made better from movement. It's also been found effective in the treatment of skin sores, ulcers and acne-like pustules as well as sores that are slow to heal. Many other homeopathic remedies can offer relief for symptoms of radiation disease; however, no one should self-treat in the event of exposure. Seek the advice of a competent homeopathic practitioner. Remedies can be purchased from online homeopathic pharmacies and stored in the event of emergencies.

Humans 2.0: these geneticists want to create an artificial genome by synthesising our DNA

Scientists intend to have fully synthesised the genome in a living cell - which would make the material functional - within ten years, at a projected cost of $1 billion

By Emma Bryce 2 days ago

In July 2015, 100 geneticists met at the New York Genome Center to discuss yeast. At 12 million base pairs long, it's the largest genome scientists have tried to produce synthetically. Andrew Hessel, a researcher with the Bio/Nano research group at software company Autodesk, was invited to speak at the event. The audience asked him which organism should be synthesised next. "I said, 'Look around the room. You've got hardly anyone here and you're doing the most sophisticated genetic engineering in the world," Hessel recalls. "Why don't you take a page out of history and set the bar high? Do the human genome." This triggered a panel discussion that stuck in Hessel's mind for weeks. Soon afterwards, he contacted George Church, a prominent geneticist at Harvard University, to gauge his interest in launching what would effectively be the Human Genome Project 2.0. "To me it was obvious," Hessel recalls. "If we could read and analyse a human genome, we should also write one." A year later, his provocation had become reality. In May 2016, scientists, lawyers and government representatives converged at Harvard to discuss the Human Genome Project-Write (HGP-Write), a plan to build whole genomes out of chemically synthesised DNA. It will build on the $3 billion (£2.3bn) Human Genome Project, which mapped each letter in the human genome. Leading the Harvard event was Church, whose lab is synthesising the 4.5-million-base-pair E. coli genome, and Jef Boeke 1, the NYU School of Medicine geneticist behind the yeast synthesis project. "I think we realised the two of us were getting good enough at those two genomes that we should be discussing larger ones," says Church. ""If we can achieve this, it should be possible to write large genomes in hours"" Andrew Hessel

A Science paper published after the meeting formally laid out the group's proposal: to dramatically advance DNA-synthesis technologies so that the artificial production of genomes becomes easier, faster, and cheaper. Currently, we can synthesise short strands of DNA, up to about 200 base pairs long, but the average gene has several thousand base pairs. Even this limited process is inefficient, costly and slow. But it's vital: in biological sciences, synthesised DNA is the foundation of experiments that drive everything from cancer research to vaccine development. For scientists, it's like working with a blunt yet necessary instrument. The immense three-billion-base-pair human genome is seen as the project's ultimate goal, dangling like a carrot to drive innovation. Scientists intend to have fully synthesised it in a living cell - which would make the material functional - within ten years, at a projected cost of $1 billion. The fruits of HGP-Write could have wide-ranging, real-world impacts. But in its current form, say the scientists, it's primarily a call for technological advancement in synthetic biology. The May announcement received a frosty reception from some, however. A handful of scientists invited to the event declined to attend, due to organisers' decision not to include the press. Church says they were excluded because of an embargo on the forthcoming paper. There are bigger concerns: artificial production of genomes raises the ethically unsettling question of gene patenting. Other worries, echoing those that first surrounded the gene-editing technology CRISPR, are of designer humans and parentless babies. "Moving beyond reading DNA to writing DNA is a natural next step," concedes Francis Collins, director of the US National Institutes of Health. He warns, however, that any project with real-world implications would require "extensive discussion from different perspectives, most especially including the general public". Applications beyond the lab are a distant reality: synthesising a human genome may even prove unworkable. In any case, none of the project's deliverables will be "as exciting or as evocative as a baby", Hessel says. "Some of the things that were said [after the meeting] were so ludicrous that it allowed us to get through that bubble of misinformation and misinterpretation quickly." HGP-Write's central goal is to improve synthesis technologies so it's easier to write longer strands of genetic material. DNA is made using software that designs the layout of a strand, followed by machines in a laboratory that use this template to synthesise and assemble it. It's a clunky process that limits production to short stretches of DNA. But Hessel sees the potential for enhanced software allowing more precise genome design and printing tools that, for instance, harness enzymes to build DNA the way it happens in our cells. "If we can achieve this, it should be possible to write large genomes in hours," he says. Smaller plant and animal genomes could also be synthesised along the way. One major scientific benefit could be the creation of living cell lines for pharmaceutical testing. Whole-genome synthesis would also bring down the cost of gene editing. CRISPR allows individual edits to DNA, but producing a full genome would allow thousands of edits in one go. Church sees the potential of genomes being edited to have multiple-virus resistance, for example. But these are the "byproducts" of HGP-Write, in Hessel's view: the project's true purpose is to create the impetus for technological advances that will lead to these long-term benefits. "Since all these [synthesis] technologies are exponentially improving, we should keep pushing that improvement rather than just turning the crank blindly and expensively," Church says. In 20 years, this could cut the cost of synthesising a human genome to $100,000, compared to the $12 billion estimated a decade ago. In coming months, scientists will try to take HGP-Write from proposal to project. That depends on funding. Autodesk has pledged $250,000, but organisers want to secure $10 million by the end of 2017. In the meantime, they'll be expanding the HGP-Write conversation. "I want it to be as open and transparent as possible," says Hessel, "and to keep up as much interest in this powerful universal technology, which will enable us to bring our intention into the machinery we call life. And boy, do we need to get good at it."

A Cautionary Tale

By Hal Lindsey

At a campaign-style rally in Florida last week, President Trump used Sweden as an example of what happens when immigration policies become too lax. He said, “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.” The media focused on the words, “last night,” but nothing out of the ordinary happened in Sweden the night before Mr. Trump’s remarks. Some Swedes felt offended by the remark, and struck back. Former Swedish Prime Minister, Carl Bildt, tweeted, “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking?” Speaking on the Fox News program, The Five, Bob Beckel seemed on the verge of losing control, yelling, “This president flat-out lied!” But President Trump never said there had been a terrorist incident in Sweden the night before. It’s easy to see how people got that impression, but they inferred it. He did not say it. Later, the President tweeted an explanation. “My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews.com concerning immigrants & Sweden.” Beyond the smoke and dust of the bruhaha over exactly what he meant, there is an extremely important point. Sweden’s immigration policy over the last 40 years stands as a cautionary tale for all nations. Sweden has long been a peaceful and prosperous nation. They used extremely controversial means to achieve their success, but they have had a lot of it. A 2005 commentary in the liberal London newspaper, The Guardian, called Sweden, “The most successful society the world has ever known.” That statement has never really been true of Sweden, but it shows the regard in which it was held not so long ago, particularly among liberals. Today things have changed. And the problem, as President Trump was trying to point out, largely traces back to irresponsible immigration policies. In 1975, the Swedish Parliament decided to bring in massive numbers of Muslims from the Middle East. Since then, violent crime has risen 300%! The number of rapes reported to police increased 1,472% — from 421 in 1975 to 6,620 in 2014. Sweden now has the highest per capita incidence of rape of any major nation on earth. A survey by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, an official government agency, shows that less than 25% of rapes in Sweden are even reported to police. Lest you think these are domestic issues, their study also found that, “In 58% of cases, the perpetrator was entirely unknown by the victim.” In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, prominent Swedish politicians, Jimmie Akesson and Mattias Karlsson, wrote, “Mr. Trump did not exaggerate Sweden’s current problems. If anything, he understated them.” Just a couple of days after the President’s remarks, riots broke out in an immigrant neighborhood of Stockholm. They set vehicles on fire, threw objects at police, damaged buildings, and looted businesses. The same area saw riots in 2010 and 2013. As a Christian minister, part of my job is to point out the vast differences between the Gospel and other systems of thought, including Islam. But the United States government does not have my job. It can’t take sides among religious faiths. Yet, it must keep U.S. citizens as safe as it can while adhering to the Constitution, the law, and our nation’s core principles. Here’s the bottom line. The United States government doesn’t need to address the relative merits or demerits of Islam. But it does need to carefully vet anyone who wants to enter this country from a nation known to be a hotbed of terrorism. The White House has said that President Trump will probably issue a new version of his executive order on immigration sometime next week. The original order is tied up in the courts. It singled out seven nations — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It was not a travel ban from these countries, but a 90-day pause. We can expect the new order to cover the same countries. These nations are all predominantly Muslim. But the order was not a Muslim ban. The Obama Administration had already named these seven as “countries of concern.” President Obama was not singling them out because they are predominantly Muslim, but because they are hotbeds of terrorism, and because of the difficulty in vetting people from these countries. The Trump Administration took it a step further. It said it needs a 90-day pause in which to figure out how to safely allow immigration from these trouble spots. On a recent Hal Lindsey Report, I explained the reasons behind the choice of nations. “Each of them is known to have large numbers of terrorists and terrorist-sympathizers at every level of their societies. Six of the seven are either in the midst of, or in the immediate aftermath of, civil war. The seventh is the world’s most prolific state-sponsor of terrorism — Iran.” The new Administration needs time to find ways to appropriately vet people from nations in the middle of such chaos. And, to use the President’s words, it should be “extreme vetting.” We know that ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other terrorists regularly move among nations as immigrants. So, we must use every precaution. We don’t want them to bring here the kind of chaos they say they’re trying to leave behind. Remember Sweden.

Swedish Prosecutor Refuses to Charge Migrant for Child Rape As Girl Got Pregnant Abroad

by Chris Tomlinson 24 Feb 2017

Swedish prosecutors have dropped a case involving a man who married an underage girl in Syria and got her pregnant at 13 or 14-years-old because the crime took place abroad. The allegations of child rape were brought to the prosecutor by both the Social Services and Migration Board as the man and the woman in question are migrants from Syria. The man, born in 1987, and the young girl, born in 1999, were married in Syria in 2013 when the girl would have been between the ages of 13 or 14, the man around 26, and had a child together the following year. According to Swedish law, it is illegal for an adult to have sexual relations with a minor under the age of 15 but in a press release, the prosecutor said they would not be filing charges. The prosecutor indicated that charges would not be filed because the crime occurred outside of Sweden and the pair had “no connection” to Sweden before coming as asylum seekers in 2015. They did note that there are laws in Sweden that allow prosecutors to pursue charges against Swedes who commit crimes in other countries that may be legal abroad but not in Sweden. The example of underage sex tourism was used to illustrate the point. Attorney General Anders Perklev explained the decision saying, “There is nothing in the legislative history of the legislation to suggest that it has been the intention of crimes abroad to be prosecuted in Sweden in a situation like the present. At the same time, circumstances may differ, and an assessment must be made in each case.” Changing the existing laws, “could have far-reaching consequences for people who have fled here,” Perlev said and added, “A change in the principles would, therefore, require careful consideration and should not be done any other way than through new legislation.” In cases of international law, the Swedish government has prosecuted migrants for crimes committed in other countries. Recently a Syrian migrant was jailed for life after being accused of taking part and filming mass killings in the Syrian civil war. The case also raises the issue of child brides and the legality of child marriage in Sweden. In Germany, the government is fighting against child marriages which have been on the rise due to migration from areas in the Middle East and North Africa. Last year the middle-eastern nation of Jordan, which houses many Syrians who have fled the civil war conflict, said the number of child marriages had set a new record. Denmark has gone the opposite way of Germany and decided to allow underage migrant girls to reunite with their much older husbands in the country, despite their marriages being illegal under Danish law.

'Trump was RIGHT!' Inside the Stockholm suburbs where cars are torched, drugs sold openly and fire engines must be bulletproof

President Donald Trump claimed Sweden was in the midst of immigration crisis

His words last week provoked ridicule and anger from Swedish officials

On Monday, a riot broke out in the deprived Rinkeby suburb of capital Stockholm

Young men set fire to cars, threw stones at police and looted shops in the area

Teenage boy with long criminal record who was on the run sparked the riots

The suburb - where nine out of ten residents are immigrants - is rife with crime

Youths openly deal heroin and other narcotics inside near the only train station

'Perhaps Trump was right after all,' a police officer in Rinkeby told MailOnline

But a Swedish government spokesman denied a connection between immigration and crime, saying 'it is mainly due to unemployment'

By Nick Fagge In Rinkeby, Sweden, For Mailonline Published: 10:06 EST, 23 February 2017 | Updated: 08:01 EST, 24 February 2017

The Stockholm suburb that was hit by violent riots on Monday is a police no-go zone where cars are torched almost every day, gangs rule the streets and fire engines have to be fitted with bulletproof glass. Residents of rundown Rinkeby, where nine out of ten residents are immigrants, have spoken out about how they live in fear, as Swedish politicians and police officers admitted that 'Trump was right'. 'The situation is here is terrible,' one resident said. 'I am scared most of the time when I leave my apartment. I have been assaulted twice and robbed once since I moved to Rinkeby. The criminal gangs can do what they want. 'What happened on Monday night is just the tip of the iceberg. Gangs control this whole area. There are riots every evening and the police can do nothing to contain the situation.' The US president said Sweden, usually considered among the most peaceful and stable on earth, was suffering from social problems linked to mass migration. His comments were widely mocked. But on Monday night, police were forced to fire warning shots after rioters torched cars, hurled stones at police and looted shops in the Rinkeby district of the capital, injuring a policeman. Beat officer Hanif Azizi, who was scrambled to the scene, told MailOnline: 'When we sat in the car and saw the riots I tapped my colleague on the shoulder and said, 'perhaps Trump was right after all'.' Politician Mattias Karlsson from the populist Swedish Democrats, Sweden's second most popular party, said that the chaos was the result of mass immigration, adding: 'I am very grateful to President Trump for focusing attention on this issue.' A forgotten suburb of Stockholm, Rinkeby is where brazen youths openly deal heroin and other drugs inside the entrance to the only train station. Stolen goods are on sale at the red brick over town square. School attendance levels are of great concern in the sprawling immigrant ghetto, where a massive 89.3 per cent of residents were born outside Sweden. Unemployment rates are among the highest in Sweden, at 15.4 per cent. The recent rioting in Rinkeby has been blamed on a hardcore group of criminals from immigrant backgrounds. These gangs have no links to radical Islam or any other religious groups, police sources have confirmed. One shopkeeper said: 'There is an ongoing war between the criminals on one side and the police and regular residents on the other.' Ahmed, 31, a refugee from Yemen who was placed in Rinkeby by the Swedish migration board after he claimed asylum a year ago, said: 'I fled from a country that was more like a war zone than a functioning society and ended up here. 'I am scared every day here and wish I could live somewhere else.' Ahmed added if his picture were published he would be attacked by the gangs that terrorise Rinkeby for speaking out. He is not alone. Shopkeepers told MailOnline how they regularly fall victim to the gangs of youths who openly sell heroin and other drugs inside Rinkeby's train station. 'The youths come into my shop and threaten me and my staff almost every day,' said Nouri, 44, who runs a shoe shop next to entrance to the train station where the riot erupted on Monday night. A former officer in the Afghan army, officer Nouri fled from the Taliban in 1998 and was offered asylum in Sweden. 'The gangs are always standing outside my shop,' he added. 'They come in here and grab pairs of expensive shoes and just walk out. There is nothing I can do. 'If I report them to the police they will torch the store. They are usually about 40 to 50 thugs hanging out here on the square at night. 'They sell drugs and stolen goods and are in control of the entire area. They can do what they like and there is nothing we can do about it. 'Everyone knows who they are but no one has the courage to report them to the police.' Another shopkeeper, an Iraqi man too frightened to give his name, told how his windows were smashed in the Monday night riots. 'My windows are smashed quite often,' he said. 'This is a lawless part of Stockholm. 'Gang members shoot at each other over drugs, residents are assaulted for looking the wrong way when someone is selling drugs, everything happens here. 'The situation in Rinkeby is awful. The police have lost control.' The area is so dangerous that emergency calls for ambulances and fire engines go unanswered until police can provide an escort, officials have confirmed. Victims of crime fail to report crime or volunteer themselves as witnesses due to fear of reprisals. Beat officer Hanif Azizi told MailOnline: 'We don't call this area [Rinkeby] a no-go zone ourselves [because] it stigmatizes the area and those who live here. I do not feel comfortable using that term. We call it a particularly vulnerable area. 'It is areas where we as a police force keeps extra focus and extra resources needs to be deployed here. 'The biggest problem here is those who are living here feel excluded from the rest of our society. 'People with difficult backgrounds are living here. They have no jobs and no real connection to the rest of Stockholm. They are left on their own here. 'A big part of our job is to assist fire trucks and ambulances entering the areas. We provide safety for them on a daily basis. 'We could not let the rescue services in to the area for a long time on Monday night. Several cars were on fire but we could not let them in until it was safe. 'Even the ambulances had to wait even though people were hurt. This happens often in this area.' He added: 'These areas do not only need police officers. We need teachers, adult role models for the kids, people who can take responsibility and stand up against crime. The residents are afraid to act and witness against crime. 'The young criminals have no adult role models. No one who tells them that what they are doing is wrong. 'When we sat in the car and saw the riots I tapped my colleague on the shoulder and said, 'perhaps Trump was right after all'.' Built between 1969 and 1971 as part of socialist Sweden's five-year plan to build one million homes, Rinkeby is a sprawling mass of high-rise apartments that are home to 60,000 people. Hump-back footbridges over the maze of roads provide perfect vantage points for disaffected youths to throw stones and bottles at blue-light flashing police cars – and fire engines and ambulances. Money transfer offices dominate the few shopping centres where residents – 89.3 per cent who were born outside Sweden – can transfer money to family abroad. Arabic, Somali and Persian are spoken in cafes, where traditional Swedish food is rare. Clothing stores stock headscarves, Islamic cloaks and face veils. The far right Swedish Democrats claim that Monday's carnage at Rinkeby was a direct result of mass immigration to Sweden. The country has run a liberal immigration policy for over 20 years, accepting tens of thousands of refugees every year including huge numbers of Kurds, Iraqis and Somalis. The system reached breaking point in 2015, following the arrival of over 160,000 refugees to Sweden during Europe's refugee crisis. Mattias Karlsson from the Swedish Democrats said: 'I am very grateful to President Trump for focusing attention on this issue. 'We have huge problems with border security, immigration and law and order. This is not only in Rinkeby. 'Now we have problems in our towns and cities that we did not dream could be possible ten years ago. 'Trump was right to highlight the problems we have here in Sweden.' The Swedish government has rejected Donald Trump's criticism of its immigration policy, however. Migration spokesman Fredrik Lundh Sammeli told MailOnline: 'The problems that we are facing in Rinkeby are due to basic reasons like alienation, unemployment and problems with housing. 'We are not doing the debate any favours if one draws a straight line between immigration and crime. There are other reasons why there is crime in these areas. It is mainly due to unemployment.' He added: 'It surprises me that the president of America raises Sweden as an example. I think Sweden can be an example in many cases. But not when it comes to crime related to immigration. 'Sweden did a tremendous effort during the migration crisis in 2015. We do have issues to deal with because of this. But crime in our suburbs has nothing to do with the influx of immigrants. 'Sweden is a country that is working. The social differences are far greater in the US than here. 'I think the American president misses the target. We do have challenges within these areas, but they are not related to immigration.'

'Impact of BDS is worse than most people realize'

By Tamara Zieve February 26, 2017 00:21

Richard D. Heideman, one of the foremost legal experts on fighting the BDS movement, seeks to repair the tarnished name of Zionism.

The impact of the Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions movement against Israel on US campuses is worse than most people realize, according to Richard D. Heideman, a Washington-based attorney who is a nominee for the president of the American Zionist Movement, which is set to hold elections in March. In an interview with The Jerusalem Post in Jerusalem last week, Heideman recounted an exchange he recently had with students at the University of Michigan, where he studied many years ago. “I was shocked to hear about the intimidation and threats they receive – it’s more than rallies trying to encourage organizations to divest investments in Israel – it’s really the making of violent attacks that physically threatens and intimidates a student body. Some say it’s free speech – I think it’s hate speech and has to be talked down and responded to,” he said. He believes that such activity is having a damaging effect on the identity of young Jewish students and of their views of Israel. When you feel intimidated, it thwarts the willingness to speak out freely in an exchange of ideas,” he explained. Heideman is one of the foremost legal experts on fighting the BDS movement and pursuing legal actions on behalf of victims of terrorism in courts around the world. He also serves as the chairman of the Israel Forever Foundation and honorary president of B’nai B’rith International. Heideman believes the public opinion war against Israel began decades ago. Pointing to the 1975 UN “Zionism is racism” resolution, Heideman says one must ask what preceded it. “When you take Zionism as a national movement for the re-establishment of the Jewish homeland in the land of Israel and officially have nations of the world adopt a resolution that says Zionism is racism, you have to ask how Israel came to be viewed in such a negative light.” He says a major shift in tactics against Israel came following the country’s victories in the 1967 and 1973 wars. “Those who were against Israel as a nation-state shifted from a strategy of planned physical attacks to an attack in public upon the good name of Israel and the good name of the Zionist movement. “In 1975 when the PLO and other groups and Arab countries were able to get the UN to adopt the resolution, it served as a platform for assaults in the press, through organizations and in world public opinion.Heideman believes that those who oppose Israel’s very existence, including the Islamic Republic of Iran and the PLO, have been winning that war. “We have done a terrible job standing up for our own good name,” he opines. He notes that while the “Zionism is racism” determination was later revoked, he says the UN has since been used for Israel-bashing. “It has been a well-planned attack and it continues to this very day...what we face is a mixture of assaults on Israel and the Jewish people, not only verbally but also threats and continued physical attacks – not by a formal army, but by terrorist organizations and individuals who identify with those who prefer to teach and practice hate and who do so under the guise of freedom-fighting,” Heideman says. “When you’re afraid to wear religious symbols, you don’t enjoy freedom of religion and when that fear precludes you – even those who don’t come here [to Israel] out of fear – it’s proof of the negative results of the concentrated effort to assault and malign Israel and the Jewish people. Heideman’s mission is to repair Israel’s tainted image through truth and advocacy. “The last time I saw my grandmother before she passed away, she said ‘don’t ever forget that at the end of your days all you will take with you is your good name,’” he recounts. “The good name of Israel and the Jewish people is very precious,” he stresses. “We have a great challenge to strengthen the good name of Israel and the Jewish people and of Zionism as a movement that has brought us to this time and this place.” Heideman seeks to mold a new forward-looking approach to the understanding of who the Jewish people is and who Zionists are – “committed to the concept that the Jewish people are entitled to a nation-state as the Jewish people with our homeland reestablished in Israel with Jerusalem as its capital.” He believes focus groups would be helpful in understanding Diaspora views of Israel, Judaism and Zionism. “If we’re not afraid to ask the questions we can learn a lot about ourselves – I intend to seek out professionals to find out what has happened to our good name.” He believes a major factor has been the aforementioned continuous “Israel bashing,” asserting that when you “beat long enough,” it has an impact. “Disaffection from the Jewish community, I believe is at the greatest percentage in my lifetime and it comes as a result from the beating,” Heideman says. “They haven’t heard or studied the motives and damage initiated against us by the other side.” He believes education, particularly of the younger generation, is key to arming Diaspora Jews with the right tools to stand up and respond to the bashing. “Most young people will not, cannot and don’t know how to respond because it’s easier to walk around and avoid the conflict.” He acknowledges the increase of campus activity by Jewish and Zionist organizations to change that, but says it is not yet enough. While Heideman acknowledges that politics inevitably play a part in this discussion, he highlights that up until the recent past the Left and the Right in the US agreed that Israel must not become a political football. He now wants to concentrate on a path for the future that will allow a greater coalescing of people to positively support Israel and its centrality in the lives of the Jewish people, and to rally around Zionism as a proud movement.

Taxing Religious Freedom

Scott Weiser Editor-in-Chief, Altnews.US 3:44 PM 02/20/2017

Is a threat to eliminate the tax exemption of churches that endorse candidates or political parties posed by a 1954 law called the “Johnson Amendment” a constitutional infringement on the rights of church leaders to freely express themselves from the pulpit? At ColoradoPolitics.com, Deb Walker, executive director of Citizens Project writes, “Government may not subsidize political endorsements through tax exemption,” and that “The Johnson Amendment ensures that citizens of all faith traditions (or no faith tradition) are not inadvertently financially supporting church-based politicking.” There are two failures in reasoning here. First, the reasons for exempting churches from taxation are distinguishable from those that apply to other types of charitable organizations. Whereas the law may exempt secular charities because it deems that the charitable purposes provide public benefits that outweigh the need to tax such activities, the principle of not taxing churches originates in the constitutional, philosophical and political foundations of our nation. The Supreme Court examined this principle in Everson v. Board of Education, a 1947 case affirming the authority of a state to provide funding for school busses to transport children to Catholic schools in New Jersey writing, “The centuries immediately before and contemporaneous with the colonization of America had been filled with turmoil, civil strife and persecutions, generated in large part by established sects determined to maintain their absolute political and religious supremacy. These practices of the old world… began to thrive in the soil of the new America…Catholics found themselves hounded and proscribed because of their faith…men and women of varied faiths…were persecuted. And all of these dissenters were compelled to pay tithes and taxes to support government-sponsored churches. The people [of Virginia], as elsewhere, reached the conviction that individual religious liberty could be achieved best under a government which was stripped of all power to tax…[in order to] interfere with the beliefs of any religious individual or group. The ‘establishment of religion’ clause of the First Amendment means at least this…no tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions, whatever they may be called, or whatever form they may adopt to teach or practice religion.” This sounds as if the Court would hold that New Jersey has no authority to provide taxpayer-funded school busses for Catholic schoolchildren, but that’s not case. What the Court pointed out in affirming that policy is that “the amendment commands that New Jersey…cannot exclude individual Catholics, Lutherans, Mohammedans, Baptists, Jews, Methodists, Nonbelievers, Presbyterians, or the members of any other faith, because of their faith, or lack of it, from receiving the benefits of public welfare legislation.” (Emphasis in original) The second error is that a tax exemption is not a subsidy. An exemption from a tax is not giving the person or group exempted something they don’t already have. Neither a taxpayer not affiliated with a religious organization nor the government has something taken from them that goes to a church merely because the church doesn’t pay a tax. Therefore, a tax exemption does not mean that the public is “financially supporting church-based politicking”, nor does it mean that the government is entangled “in underwriting partisan political activity.” Where the Johnson Amendment and Walker go wrong is in failing to understand that when it comes to religion the taxing power of Congress has a constitutional hurdle it must overcome that doesn’t apply to conventional non-religious charitable organizations. The historic truths cited by the Supreme Court stand for the proposition that the government cannot tax religious institutions in ways that inhibit the free exercise of religion just as much as it does the proposition that it cannot tax anyone for the purposes of advancing religion. Thus, when it comes to religious institutions it’s questionable whether or not the 501(c)(3) rules apply at all because it is the First Amendment itself that arguably prohibits the taxation of churches because religion-suppressing taxation has always been as formidable an enemy of religious freedom throughout history as religion-supporting taxation has, as the Supreme Court points out and as the Founders went to great pains to avoid. Religiously motivated speech is a constitutionally protected aspect of religious liberty that cannot be suppressed by the threat of anti-religious, anti-free-speech government taxation. This includes the freedom of both ministers and others to preach in favor of or against any political party or candidate or any other matter that they believe would either threaten or support their rights to religious freedom.

'Great spiritual rewards' for keeping God's feasts

Mark Biltz explains how to walk with God

Published: 2 days ago

The Bible speaks of certain people who were able to “walk with God” in close communion. It seems difficult to believe in the hectic modern world, where people run from one obligation to another at the expense of the most important things in their lives. How can a person incorporate faith into everyday life? And how can a person truly live the way God intends? Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, the man who discovered the “Blood Moons” phenomenon, lays out a program of total life reform in his newest book, “God’s Day Timer.” The key, he believes, is getting on the biblical calendar, “God’s calendar,” and observing the biblical feast days. “Our spiritual life is totally strengthened when we walk with God just as Enoch did, along with Noah, Abraham and David as they walked with God,” Biltz told WND. “In Amos 3:3 it asks, ‘If two can walk together unless they are in agreement.’ If we are to walk with God we must walk with Him in agreement. If I want to connect with someone in a different time zone, we need to be in agreement as to whose time zone we will choose. If you want to walk with God, you need to know when He goes on His walks! Biltz said that “being on God’s calendar rather than the one the world offers allows us to reconnect with the Creator as never before!” “There is no better way to energize your spiritual life than to make an actual connection with God according to His schedule!” However, the importance of following the biblical calendar and becoming knowledgeable about the feasts goes beyond one’s spiritual life. Biltz argues the biblical feasts provide an entirely new way of understanding the Bible. “God ordained the feasts to be the appointed times when He would prophetically intersect human history,” he explained. “For example, every year for 1,500 years before Yeshua (Jesus Christ) came, they would slay the Passover lamb on the 14th day of the first Hebrew month, Nisan. This is why Yeshua died on Passover, which is the 14th day of the first month. God even went into more detail as Yeshua was bound to the altar at 9 a.m., which is the same time the Passover lamb was bound to the altar. He died at 3 p.m., which is the same time as the evening sacrifice.” Biltz argues knowledge of the biblical feasts allows one to appreciate the deeper patterns contained within the Bible and the full interconnectedness of God’s plan. “God had King David write the funeral hymns to be sung 1,000 years later for the day when Messiah died,” Biltz said. “Every Passover the hymns that were sung were from the Psalms, which was their hymn book. The psalms that would be sung were known as the Hallel from Psalms 113-118. So when the New Testament said the disciples sang a hymn and went to the Mount of Olives, we know that last hymn was Psalm 118!” Biltz also claims the feasts have critical prophetic and eschatological importance for the entire Christian world. “Messiah died on Passover, He was buried on the Feast of Unleavened Bread, He rose on the Feast of First Fruits and the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Feast of Shavuot known as Pentecost,” Biltz marveled. “When we read in Acts about this event, it states that it was the third hour of the day. That is the time of the morning sacrifice! Every one of the spring feasts were ‘dress rehearsals’ for the times when God would intersect human history, not only to the day but to the very hour!” For that reason, Biltz urges anyone who believes the world is nearing the last days to immediately educate themselves on the biblical feasts. “If Messiah fulfilled the spring feasts to the day of His first coming, He will fulfill the fall feasts at His second coming,” Biltz said. “If Christians are not on God’s calendar they will be caught unaware when these events occur!” Pastor Biltz’s video presentation, “The Feasts of the Lord,” goes into more detail about each biblical feast, how it corresponds or will correspond with a major intervention by the Lord in human history and why Christians should be observing each one. In the end, Biltz says the biblical feasts are not just “dress rehearsals” for the major events in history. They are preparation for God’s Kingdom on Earth when Biltz says the whole world will follow the biblical law. And as part of that, all people will be observing the biblical feasts. “During the millennial reign, Jerusalem becomes the capital of the world and Jesus himself becomes the teacher of the Torah,” Biltz said. “We find from Zechariah 14 that on that day when the Lord stands on the Mount of Olives and it splits in two at His arrival, the Lord will be King over all the earth. In verses 16-19, three times it mentions that representatives from all nations have to come to Jerusalem to keep the Feast of Tabernacles, and if not they receive the plague and no rain. “We are now living in a time where we can rehearse what we will be doing in the future. We will be participating in the feasts and living by the biblical calendar. What a great opportunity to learn now what we will be doing during the millennial reign!” Many Christians may find the idea of keeping the biblical, or Jewish, feasts strange or at least tangential to their faith. But ultimately, Biltz argues, the the biblical feasts and the calendar are central. After all, if God doesn’t change, then neither do the specific celebrations He wants His people to observe. “If we truly believe God is the same yesterday, today and forever, we must acknowledge He would never change His calendar of divine appointments,” said Biltz. “God is not schizophrenic, saying His Divine appointments are good for 2,000 years, then done away with for 2,000 years, and then good again for the next 1,000 years. They are eternal and constant, just like He is. “And we should rejoice. There are great rewards spiritually if we simply do what He asks, such as keeping His divine appointments!” The Bible story is more miraculous and astounding than you could have imagined. See the incredible proof of the unchanging nature of God – and the exciting clues to what awaits at the end of days in “God’s Day Timer” by Mark Biltz, available as a book or documentary now in the WND Superstore.

The Nigerian insurgent group Boko Haram recruited 2,000 children to fight in 2016, a United Nations report released on Tuesday said. The data were part of a report indicating that at least 65,000 children worldwide were released from military and armed groups in the past 10 years, UPI reported. An estimated 17,000 children were recruited in South Sudan since 2013 and child soldiers in the Central African Republic numbered 10,000, the report by UNICEF said. Of those released from military servitude, more than 20,000 were in the Democratic Republic of Congo, nearly 9,000 in the Central African Republic and 1,600 in Chad. In northeastern Nigeria, more than 100,000 people have been killed in a seven-year conflict with Boko Haram and more than 2 million people have been displaced, Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, said on February 13. Many of the Boko Haram combatants have been boys and girls under the age of 18, and thousands more are among the displaced. Boko Haram also uses children as suicide bombers. An explosion at a Maiduguri market in December killed at least one person. A local civilian militia leader, Abdulkarim Jabo, commented that the two bombers were girls who appeared to be about 7 or 8 years old.

Shocking Banking Notice 'Red Pills' Customers And Proves We Don't Own Our Money Once We Put It In The Banks!

New 'Mark Of The Beast' And Cashless Society Warnings Flying At Us From All Directions

February 22, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

'Demon'-etization is the act of stripping a currency unit of its status as legal tender. It occurs whenever there is a change of national currency: The current form or forms of money is pulled from circulation and retired, often to be replaced with new notes or coins. The email yesterday came in to All News Pipeline from a reader quite concerned about the notice which a family member had just received from their bank - a credit union - which proved to them that once you put your money in the bank, you no longer own it. Another reason for Americans to keep their money out of the banking system, you can see a screenshot of that notice below. As the 'Change to Terms and Conditions" notice begins: effective February 1, 2017, the following addition has been made to the Membership and Account Agreement section of the Suncoast Credit Union Account Agreement and Disclosure. RIGHT TO RESTRICT SERVICES AND ACCOUNT ACCESS - We reserve the right to restrict, deny, suspend or terminate Credit Union services and/or your ability to access or withdraw account funds at any time, for any reason and without notice to you, in our sole discretion, to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law. Just more proof that we really don't 'own' our 'paper money' at all once we deposit it into a bank, and an 'instant red pill' for unsuspecting customers, we get more and more evidence in just the last few weeks that even though the globalists have lost their iron 'grip' upon America with Donald Trump voted in office, they've moved on to 'plan B' with a mad rush towards a cashless society. Also the latest example of what may be coming to America in the future when the globalists usher in 'the mark of the beast' to our nation with their 'cashless society', we see in the headlines of stories all across the world that cash is going the way of the dinosaurs. And with the ushering in of a cashless society also comes 'complete control' for the satanic globalists who long ago sold away their souls to satan with their promise to him they'll stomp upon the faces of humanity, forever. The recent story from Bloomberg is called "Surprise! Your Cash Is Now Worthless" within which they report upon India's drive to stamp out corruption by invalidating more than 80% of the currency in circulation. We shouldn't be the least bit surprised to report that according to Bloomberg's story, "the action might just end up working". 'Fake news' Washington Post has gleefully jumped on the 'Mark of the Beast' bandwagon, putting out a story last month urging the US to follow up on what India is doing, a move they report is akin to the Great Wall of China or America's interstate highway system. Should America bring in a fully digital payment system? Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz said at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, that the United States should follow Modi’s lead in phasing out currency and moving toward a digital economy, because it would have “benefits that outweigh the cost.” Speaking of the inequity and corruption that is becoming an issue in the United States and all over the world, he said: “I believe very strongly that countries like the United States could and should move to a digital currency so that you would have the ability to trace this kind of corruption. There are important issues of privacy, cybersecurity, but it would certainly have big advantages.” The January 25th story from Survival Dan is called "Epocalypse: The Cashless Society Is Almost Upon Us" within which we read one of the best summary's of why the globalists who almost stole our country away during the past several decades so badly want a cashless society - it still gives THEM complete control. The ULTIMATE 'mark of the beast', if we see America going the way of cashless society, we know the end of 'free humanity' is near.: There are a number of reasons given for this, from convenience to security, but the underlying motive really is control. Bible prophecy makes it clear that a large part of the 666 beast system will be controls on what anyone can buy and sell. With these moves to do away with cash, we’re taking a giant step toward that reality. This move is intimately connected with the “Mark of the Beast”, and for that reason, this is an area to watch closely. If this sounds like some wild conspiracy theory, consider the following: no less Sterling standard of global economics than The Economist predicted thirty years ago that by 2018 a global currency would rise like the phoenix out of the ashes of the worlds fiat currencies. (Seen above) Once Cash Is Banned They Will Be Able To Force You To Buy Products: “Just Tax Their Excess Account Balance” In the event the President or other bureaucrat declares a financial crisis, the government can move with unprecedented speed to stabilize the system by simply compelling you to spend money to boost economic activity. And by “compelling” we mean forcing you through direct taxation and withdrawal of your funds. The idea is that either you start spending your money like a good Patriotic American according to the rules and regulations, or the government would just take it from you and reappropriate it as they see fit. But such a thing could never happen in America – that the government could force a private citizen to purchase a product or service, or face financial penalties and even jail time – right? To answer this question we direct you to the Patient Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare that the Republicans in Congress have already begun the legislative process of overhauling the law (although a final repeal bill is not likely to land on President Donald Trump’s desk for some weeks, even possibly months.) Besides, you don’t own that money you’re depositing at the bank anyway, because once you deposit those funds, according to new banking rules, you become a creditor to your financial institution and they can pretty much do whatever they want with what was formerly your money.” Is 'the mark of the beast' coming to America? As we are asked in the first video below, between demonetization, cashless payments, biometrics and all of the coming technology, can we connect the dots? James Corbett from The Corbett Report uncovers the truth about India's recent demonetization and follows the trail to the coming cashless biometric control grid. Long considered 'conspiracy theory', the fact that globalist-tied The Economist predicted a global currency by 2018 should be seen as a sign they'll do everything in their power to make that goal a reality. Judging by how quickly sovereign nations such as India and Sweden have switched to such a society shows us it could soon be our coming reality. As this recent story from Global Research reports, the EU has stepped up their pace for a cashless society by 2017/2018. Back in 2016 Zero Hedge reported China had readied their digital currency while the IMF called it 'extremely beneficial'. For those who want to control everything, we're sure it is. Back in January, Concerned US Patriots warned a totalitarian police state with Americans living in 'cashless smart cities' was clearly the way we were headed with the mad rush towards a cashless society and within their story, they shared with us the very real consequences of those unable to take part within the 'system' now in India.: There are a myriad of problems associated with this. Many street vendors, rickshaw drivers, and other small time merchants cannot afford the card readers necessary to conduct the transactions electronically. In some cases the consequences have been starvation, suicide, and the inability to pay for medical expenses because of lack of access to funds or because of how difficult it is to exchange the 500 and 1000 rupee notes for lower denomination bills. And as we hear in the 2nd video below from The Event Is Coming Soon, everything is now aligning for the globalists to usher in their 'mark of the beast' system as 'the globalists strike back' in their march to a cashless control grid. The new story today from Anonymous HQ that Steve Quayle linked to on his website reports that Europe wants to confiscate money, precious metals, crypto currecy and prepaid cards in their bid to 'fight terrorism'. Leaving little but a cashless society in which the elite control who buys what and when, we understand why John Whitehead over at LewRockwell.com writes "The Police State Is Alive And Well" and we only have 'the illusion' of choice in 2017. If Whitehead is correct, just imagine how much worse it might be should the globalists be successful at bringing in their 'cashless society' and 'mark of the beast'. It's bad enough knowing THEY own your cash once you deposit it in their bank.

'Mystery From The Top Of The World' Alarms Experts - Scientists Warn: 'Billions Being Exposed' As Our Food Chain Is Decimated

- Was Mysterious Radiation Spike Coming From The Arctic A Russian Nuclear Weapons Test?

February 23, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

In the most recent story from ENENews they report scientists are very concerned that the radiation now hitting the US will only continue to worsen with this dire warning: "BILLIONS are being exposed." Warning us the damaged Fukushima nuclear reactors will continue to pour radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean "for the rest of time", their story is just the most recent proving the Northern hemisphere is getting hit by a whole lot of radiation, with a huge new mysterious radiation spike that has alarmed and baffled scientists and experts now striking Europe from 'the top of the world'. According to a recent story from The Drive that Steve Quayle linked to on his website on Monday, increased levels of radioactive iodine have recently been reported all across Europe that appear to be coming from the Arctic Circle. As their story asks, "has there been a 'nuclear incident' in the Arctic"? In the 1st video below, our videographer takes a look at this latest mystery and asks, "has Russia conducted a nuclear weapons test in the Arctic region?" The concern was great enough that the US has flown a nuclear 'sniffer jet' to the UK after the mysterious radiation spike in Europe, a plane designed to detect nuclear explosions that were also used after the Chernoby disaster in 1986 and were recently deployed around North Korea after they were alleged to have conducted a nuclear test in 2016. Not surprisingly, according to The Independent, the radioactive Iodine-131 (most closely associated with atomic bombs) was found originally in Northern Norway back in December but authorities kept it secret, not announcing it until recently after it had also been detected elsewhere across Europe. Has a 'dirty bomb' been released by ISIS in Europe without the knowledge of authorities, its poisons silently spreading across Europe? Like what is happening across the Northern hemisphere due to Fukushima now, radiation is the 'perfect poison', invisible to sight, unable to be touched or tasted or smelled and we certainly can't 'hear it'. We have no real way of knowing that it's even there short of technology most of us don't have. From The Independent story: Mysterious radioactive spikes are being found across Europe – and nobody quite knows why. Iodine-131, a man-made radioactive material, is being found in small amounts across the continent. It was found in northern Norway early in January, according to officials, but has been gradually moving across the rest of Europe ever since. But despite finding the material in January, authorities didn’t announce that it had been found until recent days. That might be because it isn't at all clear where it has come from or how it got to be spread out. Further information makes the find even more unusual. Iodine-131 is usually found alongside other radioactive materials, but it wasn't. And it has a short half-life – the time required for one half of the atoms of a radioactive substance to disintegrate – but a significant amount of it was found, meaning that it is likely that it was introduced very recently. There is no imminent threat from the amount of material that is currently being found in Europe, according to the French IRSN, or nuclear security body. The IRSN said that it had shared the findings with the “Ring of Five” – a group of similar bodies across Europe – so that they can be further investigated. With most of the mainstream media refusing to report anything of real signifance to the American people, thus their 'fake news' label rightly earned, might America get some truth on the devastation that Fukushima radiation is causing from President Donald Trump? If a chronic perfect poison is continually being released into the oceans, causing the mass deaths of Pacific Ocean life and putting BILLIONS at risk as experts have warned, shouldn't we have the right to 'officially' know or is Fukushima just another globalist depopulation method, sure to be censored forever and eventually bring our planet to extinction? The February 5th story from ENENews reported upon a record number of dead whales scattered throughout the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Most of them 'sick and starving', officially, scientists are officially 'mystified' about what is causing the mass deaths of our planet's biggest mammals, living in the sea. We've called out our scientists over and over again in stories on ANP and will continue to do so within this story. As anybody paying attention to 'real world news' knows, the mass deaths of whales in Hawaii only continued a nearly 6-year-long spree of mass wildlife deaths across our oceans and planet Earth as has been extensively documented by End Times Prophecy. Long ago we were warned by a very wise man who lived here in America long before the globalists came here to destroy our planet that 'man does not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do the web, we do to ourselves'. As one 'expert' warned about Fukushima to mainly 'deaf ears' way back in 2015, "what is happening in Fukushima, it's all going to cascade up to us", one day. That day is getting closer every day now. In the 2nd video below, BPEarthwatch shares with us the news from scientists who warn that Fukushima will continue to 'leak until the end of time', completely poisoning and decimating our food chain (wonder why the whales are starving?!) while in the final video, David Knight from Infowars gives us an update upon this disaster that is still being highly censored by the MSM and top levels of government despite the fact that it will NEVER go away.

Massive coronal hole still facing Earth expect major quakes in coming days as our Sun hurled a twisted plume of debris more than 250,000 km into space

Spaceweather.com reports SOLAR TORNADO OVER-ROTATES, EXPLODES: Yesterday, an explosion on the sun's eastern limb hurled a twisted plume of debris more than 250,000 km above the solar surface. NASA's orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast: An 8-hr movie recorded by extreme ultraviolet telescopes onboard the spacecraft shows what happened: A tornado of magnetized plasma became unstable when the twister twisted a bit too much. Magnetic fields crissed, crossed, and exploded in a process known as "magnetic re-connection." The flying debris will not hit our planet; the blast was too far off the sun-Earth line. Meanwile a massive coronal hole is still facing Earth meaning we could still expect more major quakes and volcanic activity in the coming days. Solar wind flowing from the indicated coronal hole should reach Earth on Feb. 23-24. Credit: NASA/SDO.

Breaking: Adams & Jones Taken Down by Google/CIA Prior to Big Event- Trump Needs to Beware

By Dave Hodges

The censorship of the Independent Media has begun in earnest by Jeff Bezos and Google. On my last radio show (2/19), Mike Adams revealed that he was contacted and was told “We will pay you $50,000 to provide us with damaging information against Alex Jones. If you do not help us, we will destroy you”. In the PM on February 22, 2017, Mike Adams reached out to me and informed me that Google’s search engines have removed all 140,000 pages of content from Natural News ( www.naturalnews.com ). If the reader puts Natural News in the Google search engine, it comes back as www.natural.news.com . This is Mike’s back up site which is a shell of his original site. Given the time proximity between the attempt to blackmail Mike Adams and Google’s takedown of one of one of the biggest websites in the Independent Media, it is too suspicious to be considered to be a mere coincidence. It is clear from just the circumstantial evidence, that entities representing Google tried to blackmail Mike Adams into providing damning information about Alex Jones and then when Mike did not respond, they took him down. In the same time frame, Alex Jones lost $3 million in Google advertising revenue which serves to validate the Mike Adams’ claim that he was indeed blackmailed in an attempt to destroy Alex Jones. Please notice that I have chosen my words very carefully! I am not saying that Google, itself, or Bezos, himself, are DIRECTLY responsible for these actions against Jones and Adams, beyond the censorship. I said entities representing Google interests are responsible for what will follow this round of censorship. Now, this does not take Bezos off the hook as the buck stops with him. I know, you are saying Dave, get to the point. I recently published information that showed that Google’s owner and now the owner of the Washington (com) Post had entered into a $600 million dollar deal with the CIA and indirectly with 16 other intelligence agencies. In my opinion, and in the opinion of my sources who have done business at this level, Mike Adams and Alex Jones are both victims of a CIA hit orchestrated in conjunction with Deep State and in this instance, that would be the Washington (com) Post. Why Would the CIA and the Washington Post Target Adams and Jones? Many will think, for example, that Adams was targeted because of his fine work in exposing the dangers associated with vaccines which is big business for many of the elite (eg Bill Gates). However, Mike has been exposing this information for years without suffering these kinds of illegal intimidation and anti-trust actions by Google. What do Alex and Mike have in common that would cause these people to act with such reckless abandon? The answer can be summed up in one word, Pizzagate. One must consider the fact that both Alex Jones and Mike Adams have been among the leaders in exposing Pizzagate and linking this heinous criminal enterprise with very prominent people. Names are beginning to be named and no doubt, Mike Adams and Alex Jones would be among the first to strike blows in this arena by naming prominent politicians. We fully know that we are days and weeks away from these revelations. The Common Sense Show is beginning to receive names of the participants. What has happened to Mike and Alex is damage control, a killing of the messenger. The criminal left is desperate. There is no false flag that these animals will not engage in. Another Related Motive In my recent interview with Mike (2/23), he suggested that this is also a silencing of the Independent Media prior to a very big event. This will likely be an event that the Deep State cannot allow any opposition to if they are to hoodwink the public. Please keep in mind that the Trump/Session forces are closing in on Pizzagate organizers and participants. The left is desperate. Trump cannot be allowed to continue with this investigation. The only way to stop this bulldog of justice is to do to him what was done to JFK. Mike Adams, myself and my best source believe that an assassination attempt is coming. The Independent Media cannot be allowed to be questioning the “official narratives”. In 1963, when JFK was murdered, there was no Independent Media around to question the official lies coming out of the Warren Commission. In 2017, the Deep State cannot allow any form of Independent Media to ask any questions and cast doubt upon the lies that will be fed to the American people because, as we can anticipate, Trump’s assassin will be the old familiar theme of a lone nut who has a diary stating what he was going to do and of course, just like Lee Harvey Oswald, he will be murdered, himself, to obscure the true nature of the false flag event. Conclusion The recent actions by the CIA and Google serve to inhibit any Pizzagate prosecution at the highest levels of corporate and political power. To ensure the investigations stop, the Trump administration must be neutered and the best way to do that would be to cut the head off of the snake and that means to assassinate Donald Trump. This is their only play. Protests, riots and incessant media lies have not derailed the Trump machine. We are witnessing the absolute desperation of the Deep State and Mike Adams and Alex Jones are caught up in the continued concealment of heinous crimes of prominent people protected by the Deep State. No doubt that more Google takedowns are coming. The answer for this is for the general public to all open a website. It can be done for free. You do not have to write anything or possess any technical skills. Simply republish and credit the Independent Media Sources on your site. In this manner, Google’s censorship of the truth will not be effective. America, the time to act is NOW! Please make this interview with Mike Adams go viral.

Obama lawyers form 'worst-case scenario' group to tackle Trump

Fearful the new administration will abuse its power, the former president’s lawyers are uniting to fight back.

By Edward-Isaac Dovere 02/23/17 05:14 AM EST

Top lawyers who helped the Obama White House craft and hold to rules of conduct believe President Donald Trump and his staff will break ethics norms meant to guard against politicization of the government — and they’ve formed a new group to prepare, and fight. United to Protect Democracy, which draws its name from a line in President Barack Obama’s farewell address that urged his supporters to pick up where he was leaving off, has already raised a $1.5 million operating budget, hired five staffers and has plans to double that in the coming months. They’ve incorporated as both a 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4), allowing them to operate as a nonprofit but participate in some forms of political advocacy as well. While other Trump opponents focus on taking the president to court over the travel ban and deportations, the new group plans to drill into issues that aren’t already hitting the headlines, like potential intervention in and intimidation of regulatory agencies by West Wing staff. “When people hear concerns about democracies declining into authoritarianism, they expect that moment to come in a singular thunderclap where everyone can see that this is the time,” said Ian Bassin, who’s leading the new group. “In reality, often times, democracies decline over a period of years that happen through a series of much smaller steps.” They started by submitting 50 Freedom of Information Act requests this week that they believe will confirm their suspicions. The plan is to bring what they find to reporters, build it into pressure for congressional oversight with the help of a campaign director they’ll hire, and, as necessary, to file lawsuits. They’re also hoping to establish themselves as a base for government employees worried about ethics violations — up to and including becoming whistleblowers — and are hoping that their website, https://unitedtoprotectdemocracy.org/ ,can become a resource. White House press secretary Sean Spicer, responding to the group's formation, said, "This administration has raised the level of ethics training and oversight to a new level compared to the practices of the previous administration." “You need folks who have been in the government to understand how they operate to make sure that those protections continue to serve their function,” said Tom Perrelli, an associate attorney general during Obama’s first term now in private practice who's spoken with Bassin about the new group. Jesse Lee, who was Obama’s White House director of rapid response, is also on board as communications director,and Caroline McKay, a former legal assistant in the White House Counsel’s office, is managing operations. But they’re also coming with a huge network of support from other Obama lawyers, as well as partner organizations like the Brennan Center. "President Obama has said repeatedly that his lawyers deserve a lot of credit for helping his Administration go eight years without a major scandal,” said Danielle Gray, one of Obama’s former secretaries of the Cabinet. “The leaders of this effort will bring that experience to protecting and preserving accountable and democratic government.” Bassin “has managed to gain the support of a lot of very serious people,” said Karen Dunn, another former associate White House counsel best known for helping run debate prep for Obama and Hillary Clinton, and called her former colleague the “perfect person for this particular organization at this particular moment.” “It’s really important for a bunch of people to shine the light on this question, to make very clear when autocrats are starting in any way to detract from democratic institutions,” said Yascha Mounk, a Harvard Law lecturer who specializes in the rise of authoritarianism and has been having high level strategic advisory conversations with the group. But it’s more than just the smaller encroachments that are on Bassin’s mind. Trump’s attack on the judge who halted his immigration ban already has him building a plan for what might happen if the White House directly defies a judicial ruling, and what they’d need to do in the potential constitutional crisis that would follow. Existing nonprofits, he said, have not been structured to deal with the kind of unprecedented, norm-breaking threats that he believes are coming from Trump and his aides. “We need an organization that is specifically and holistically focused on that worst-case scenario,” Bassin said.

Liberals Claim Sedition is Now Legal in America

Michael CostFebruary 24, 2017

How are political “leaders” in the United States allowed to be openly seditious, and get away with it? By examining the legal definition of sedition, it is clear that establishment politicians and mainstream media outlets are in violation of this law. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and many other liberal-leaning media outlets and websites have been blatantly lying about President Donald Trump, and they have also called for his overthrow and/or impeachment. They are, by very definition, carrying out a seditious conspiracy to oust Donald Trump. 18 U.S. Code 2384 explains “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both. (Cornell University, 2017) (June 25, 1948, CH. 645, 62 Stat. 808; July 24, 1956, ch. 678, § 1, 70 Stat. 623; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(N), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.) It is my opinion that President Trump is playing nice so that he doesn’t seem to the people as if he is some authoritarian; however it is high-time that these criminals begin being held accountable for their actions. University Professors, establishment politicians, Hollywood actors/actresses and many other left-minded and prestigious people have come out and openly called for the overthrow of President Trump and his administration. “The fourth possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders,” said Rosa Brooks, Georgetown University Professor at the New America Foundation. “WAKE UP & JOIN THE RESISTANCE. ONCE THE MILITARY IS W US FASCISTS GET OVERTHROWN. MAD KING & HIS HANDLERS GO BYE BYE,”said Sarah Silverman, a Hollywood actress. “I hope he’s not there for four years. I hope that this man and who he is, the way that he has defined himself, the way that he is acting—I am hoping that we are able to reveal all of this. And my greatest desire is to lead him right into impeachment,” said Maxine Waters, Democratic Congresswoman from California. Waters has also made outrageous claims of President Trump having connections to the Russian government, but literally in the next breath implied that Vladimir Putin is invading…Korea?! The way she stated this was as if it was a question, and as if she was making up everything she was saying. Waters also called Trump’s admin “scumbags,” in a recent interview on live television. If these were regular/everyday citizens, they would be in prison for sedition, however because they are leftists-liberals with some clout, they seem to get a free pass on their blatant crimes. If it were just these three individuals calling for the overthrow of a democratically elected President, it would not be much to worry about. However, there are leftists all over this country who are following the example of these seditious criminals and there are calls all over America to oust the Trump administration, with no legitimate reason I might add. Americans should be demanding to know why these criminals are allowed to freely walk our streets and continue to spew their false narratives and straight-up lies to the American people. Trump’s cabinet is being delayed for a reason, and I believe that reason is to intentionally delay the Trump administration from having the power to come after these seditious criminals. Groups like Antifa and other radical leftists are running around America calling Trump and his supporters “fascists,” while at the same time they themselves, and their leaders, are acting fascistically. President Trump, from a U.S. Army veteran and patriot of this nation, I humbly request that you end this seditious and traitorous behavior immediately before this currently cold civil-war in America goes hot. It will not be the fault of President Donald Trump, nor his followers, when the blood begins to spill. It will be due to the lies and fake narratives fed to the American people from these seditious criminals, which will spark the battle.

John Quincy Adams: Supporting the Jewish homeland with the Bible in hand

By Benjamin Glatt February 23, 2017 11:31

The sixth US president's expertise in the ‘Good Book’ made him encourage the ‘rebuilding of Judea.’ Long before God had awakened the Jewish people to return to their ancient homeland, experts of the Bible, such as sixth US president John Quincy Adams, were already in support of a Jewish state in the Holy Land. Immediately upon entering the White House, Adams, like his father, president John Adams, had written to Maj. Mordecai Manuel Noah in the first year of his presidency that he believed in the “rebuilding of Judea as an independent nation.” This love for the people who brought the Bible to the world was nurtured in the Adams puritan household.They were also deeply religious Unitarians who admired Jews and sympathized with those who dreamed of a return to their ancient homeland,” wrote Denis Brian in “The Elected and the Chosen: Why American Presidents Have Supported Jews and Israel.” Yet none of this could have happened had Adams not been so familiar with the Bible. In the American Jewish Historical Quarterly from 1955, the editors noted the fervor the Adams had for studying Scriptures and the importance he saw behind it. In the 1811 letter to his son, Adams wrote how happy he was to hear that his son was helping his aunt study the Bible every evening. “I advise you, my son, in whatever you read, and most of all in reading the Bible, to remember that it is for the purpose of making you wiser and more virtuous,” he said. “I have myself, for many years, made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year. I have always endeavored to read it with the same spirit and temper of mind, which I now recommend to you: that is, with the intention and desire that it may contribute to my advancement in wisdom and virtue.” Quincy Adams learned from his father that whoever reads the Bible can only come to the conclusion that God will fulfill his Word to the prophets and bring the Jewish people back to their ancient homeland. “I speak as a man of the world to men of the world; and I say to you, search the Scriptures! The Bible is the book of all others, to be read at all ages, and in all conditions of human life; not to be read once or twice or thrice through, and then laid aside, but to be read in small portions of one or two chapters every day, and never to be intermitted, unless by some overruling necessity,” he once proclaimed. These beliefs and knowledge of the Bible that the American people have, continue to support the strong US-Israeli ties till this day, with the Adams family helping establish this fact in the highest and most powerful office in the country – the Executive Office of the President of the United States. On February 23, 1848, at the age of 80, the sixth president of the US John Quincy Adams died in Washington DC. He is remembered as one of the first leaders of the free world to announce his support for the fulfillment of God’s Word to the prophets through the creation of a Jewish state in the Holy Land.

‘$3.75 billion investment in Israel's Leviathan gas reservoir a blow to BDS’

By Sharon Udasin February 23, 2017 16:09

The development of Leviathan, which is scheduled to take about three years, constitutes both the largest energy project and financial investment in Israel in the country's history. The announcement that the partners of the Leviathan gas reservoir will invest $3.75 billion in its development is a devastating blow to the BDS movement, Eli Groner, director-general of the Prime Minister’s Office, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday. The development of Leviathan, which is scheduled to take about three years, is both the largest energy project and financial investment in Israel in the country’s history. Groner hailed Thursday’s final investment decision (FID) for ending years of bureaucratic squabbles that all but froze Israel’s natural gas sector, the country’s largest resource, is officially on the road to development. “After seven years, after embarrassing delays, the message we’re getting today is that Israel is comfortably on its way to achieving full energy security,” Groner said. “This is the biggest investment ever in Israel.” Gas is expected to flow from the Leviathan reservoir to Israel’s shores by the end of 2019. The reservoir, located about 130 km. west of Haifa, will not only boost domestic gas supplies, but will also likely serve as an export outlet for Israel’s immediate neighbors and the wider Mediterranean region. Houston-based Noble Energy holds a 39.66% share of the Leviathan reservoir, while the Delek Group’s subsidiaries Delek Drilling and Avner Oil Exploration each have 22.67% and Ratio Oil Exploration has 15%. “In an era of the BDS [Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions] movement, when the Israeli government is going to such efforts to thwart BDS, this is a great victory,” said Groner, who was a guiding force on behalf of the Prime Minister’s Office in recent gas negotiations. “Almost tragically, there were many voices within Israel from the populist side that did everything in their power to thwart this investment,” Groner continued. “But thanks to leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, the haters were not able to succeed, and Noble was convinced that this is a place that’s worthwhile to invest in. The next stage is to ensure that many other energy exploratory companies form around the world will invest here.” “If you look at the history of the 20th century through the lens of energy, you realize that countries around the world would go to war over types of reservoirs that we had under our noses,” he said. Steinitz also celebrated the announcement, declaring that the FID puts an end to the claims of those who objected to the gas outline. “If we continue on a responsible and steadfast path, we will also succeed in discovering more gas fields, positioning Israel as an important player in the energy market alongside our neighbors in the Middle East and Europe,” Steinitz said. The energy minister pointed out the numerous benefits of the field to Israel, including financial profits, clean air for future generations and an increase in energy security. Netanyahu also voiced his support for the investment, adding that the process “provides a gas supply to the State of Israel and promotes cooperation with neighboring countries in the energy sector.” The $3.7b. project budget adds to the already approximately $1b. invested in various exploration, appraisal and planning activities to date. “Development of the Leviathan project is another milestone in the fulfillment of Israel’s energy security and will bring benefits in the air quality and health of Israel’s citizens, who will also benefit from increased government revenues and from a path to better relations with their neighbors in the region,” Bini Zomer, Israel country manager for Noble Energy, said on Thursday.

Trump Administration To Overturn Guidance on Transgender Bathrooms in Schools UPDATE: Happened

Christine Rousselle Posted: Feb 22, 2017 6:05 PM

UPDATE: This has happened. The Trump administration cited "legal confusion" as to why they were lifting the guidance. ---Original Post---

President Trump is set to overturn an Obama administration guidance regarding transgender bathrooms in schools. The original guidance, which said that students should be permitted to use the bathroom of their "gender identity" rather than their biological sex. This was blocked by judge. From the Washington Post: In a letter to the nation’s schools, administration officials plan to say they are withdrawing guidance issued by the Obama administration that found that denying transgender students the right to use the bathroom of their choice violates federal prohibitions against sex discrimination, according to a draft of the letter obtained by The Washington Post. “This interpretation has given rise to significant litigation,” states the two-page draft, which indicates that the Education and Justice departments plan to issue it jointly. The draft says administrators, parents and students have “struggled to understand and apply the statements of policy” in the Obama-era guidance. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was reportedly against overturning the guidance, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in favor.

Are You Going To Cast A Spell On Trump?

Get your coven. By Jaya Saxena Feb 23, 2017

Those who don't like Donald Trump and the current Republican administration are mobilizing in all sorts of ways. They're speaking up in town halls and calling their representatives. They're organizing protests and demonstrations. And, for the magically-inclined, they're casting spells. Starting at midnight on Friday, witches around the country are calling for a mass spell to be cast on Donald Trump every night of a waning crescent moon until he's driven from office. The spell was publicized by Michael M. Hughes, who told ELLE.com that it was tweaked from multiple spells he saw going around private witchcraft groups. He published it on Extra News Feed because he felt "it would be very welcome to a lot of people." It quickly spread, with events being formed around the country and support on social media. Hughes explained that he chose a binding spell because "we're not wishing harm on anyone, we're just trying to stop the harm they're doing. It's not the equivalent of punching a Nazi in the face, it's the equivalent of tying him up and taking his bullhorn away." The ritual itself is pretty standard magic working, binding Trump from doing harm to others and to himself, rather than asking any forces to do harm to him. There are objects to represent the elements and to represent Trump himself. The tarot card of the Tower represents ambitions built on lies, which are struck down by a lightning flash of truth. For those who believe in witchcraft, it looks to be an effective spell. However, even for those who don't, the ritual can have meaning. Witches have gathered to create spells for social justice before, whether it was to hex convicted rapist Brock Turner or exorcise the Pentagon. "My feeling was people were feeling so helpless in the face of all this," said Hughes, who sees the ritual, as much as anything, as a self-exorcism. "So many of us are overwhelmed by this guy's face, this energy―it's ever present and beating a lot of us down. I see this as a way of people reclaiming their own power...it's not just that we can stop him, but we can expunge him from ourselves." Hughes also says that all are welcome, even those highly skeptical of magic. "The real intention is just to get the energy focused at the same time, as many people as possible," he says. People can participate in their own religious rituals, or even perform this as a joke or an art project. "No matter how you approach it, it's still great to be part of it." Plus, we're sure you have some candles lying around.

IGP: Nerve agent used in Kim Jong-nam murder

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have identified the type of chemical used in the murder of Kim Jong-nam as the highly toxic VX-nerve agent. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the Centre for Chemical Weapons Analysis at the Chemistry Department carried out preliminary tests to identify the type of chemical used in the murder. "The centre did dry swabs on the eyes and face of the victim. "The chemical substance on the exhibits has been identified as VX-Nerve-Agent," Khalid said in a statement on Friday. He added that VX is classified as a chemical weapon under the Schedule 1 of the Chemical Weapons Convention Act 2005 and Chemical Weapons Convention Act 1997. "Other exhibits are still being analysed," he said. Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was killed after two women splashed a chemical on his face at the KL International Airport 2 on Feb 13. Two women, a Malaysian man and a North Korean man have been arrested to assist in the investigations. VX (S2 ethyl diisopropylamino methylphosphonothioate) is an extremely toxic substance that has no known uses except in chemical warfare as a nerve agent. according to Wikipedia. It is a tasteless and odorless liquid with an amber-like color. 10 milligrams is sufficient for it to be fatal through skin contact and for inhalation it is estimated to be 30–50 mg·min/m3. As a chemical weapon, it is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations in UN Resolution 687. The production and stockpiling of VX exceeding 100 grams per year per signatory was outlawed by the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993. The only exception for its use is for research, medical or pharmaceutical purposes.

They won't admit it in Stockholm, but Donald Trump is right about immigration in Sweden

Fraser Nelson 23 February 2017 • 7:18pm

I was in Stockholm last Friday, an eyewitness on the great night that nothing happened. Donald Trump gave a speech in Florida the next day, asking his audience to look at what had occurred “last night in Sweden”. Something appalling, apparently, involving asylum seekers. The Swedes “took in large numbers,” he said. And now “they’re having problems like they never thought possible”. But he was wrong: nothing of note had happened that night. His mistake was used by much of the Swedish media (and politicians) to slate him, as if he concocted the whole idea of an immigration problem. The mockery lasted for days: what event could he have been referring to? Were some meatballs burned in Uppsala? Did an Ikea run out of Billy bookshelves? “What has he been smoking?” asked Carl Bildt, a former prime minister. He could almost have asked: Crisis? What crisis? The inside pages of most Swedish newspapers would carry the answer. Earlier this week, for example, a riot broke out in one of Stockholm’s suburbs, ending in a photographer being injured and a policeman opening fire. There were also stories about how six Afghan child refugees have committed suicide in Sweden in the last six months, failed by a government system that cannot cope with the 25,000 unaccompanied migrant children in its care. All this is shocking – but in Sweden nowadays, not so surprising. Sweden is not a country that is falling apart. You can still land in Stockholm’s gorgeous Arlanda airport, skate on the frozen lakes in special lanes polished by the local authorities, cook sausages on the communal barbecues. The Scandinavian paradise is still there, welcoming and inspiring. The government has, after great upheaval, managed to cut the refugee influx by four fifths. But its failure to integrate those already there has led to another Sweden, a country within a country characterised by gang violence and joblessness. It’s easier to ignore this in Stockholm than it is in Malmö, a smaller city which has long been the first port of call for immigrants who arrive over the bridge from Denmark. On the day I arrived in Sweden, a 23-year-old was murdered in the city square there, shot in the head in front of several witnesses. It was the third such murder in six weeks. The local press tends not to report the ethnicity of the victim or suspects in such attacks, but Swedes have learnt to recognise immigrant-related gang crime when the see it. Foreigners who visit the wrong part of Sweden can pay a heavy price: last summer a British boy was killed in a grenade attack in Gothenburg as he slept with his family. If grenades were being thrown into children’s bedrooms in Birmingham or asylum centres were being torched in Surrey, the immigration debate in Britain might be a little different. The word “crisis” might be used. But what’s striking about Sweden is how defensive policymakers are when confronted about all this; how insistent they are that things are under control. As the violence affects just a sliver of society, the overall Swedish crime figures are quite small. Trouble can be buried in the data. Wider discussion about all of this is also discouraged by what’s known as Sweden’s “opinion corridor”, the narrow parameters into which public debate is confined. Those who step outside, and talk about the immigration problems, risk being accused of bigotry. Or, perhaps worse, giving succour to the populist Sweden Democrats, now supported by one in six Swedes. The immigrants do want to work, but find themselves stuck outside a heavily-regulated jobs market that could have been designed by a populist demagogue to keep them out. For unskilled work in restaurants, for example, the trade unions’ unofficial (but strictly enforced) minimum wage is about £10 an hour. For unskilled immigrants, especially from countries like Afghanistan and Somalia with no properly functioning education system, this means the Swedish dream ends before it begins. A policy intended to lift everyone’s wages has ended up destroying entry-level jobs, and ensuring thousands of immigrants are shut out of the economy, denied the first rung on the ladder to work. Among Swedes, unemployment is about 4 per cent and falling. Among immigrants, it’s 22 per cent. No developed country has a higher differential: in Britain, there’s barely any difference at all. The Swedish government describes itself as a “humanitarian superpower” and accepted refugees on that basis, but its fatal mistake was failure to welcome so many without being able to integrate them. Hence the zones of joblessness and the criminality, and the inability to know what to do about it. The resulting shadow society is now quite advanced, with its own moral codes and even its own legal system. Tribal courts are now in operation, dealing with crimes – or, at least, what count as crimes in the underworld. The fine for a failed attempted murder is about £50,000, according to Malmö’s chief prosecutor. Of the 37 murders and attempted murders in the first half of last year, just seven have been solved. But what are police to do, when witnesses drop out and victims drop the charges? Officers admit that, when child refugees go missing from care homes – feared to have been passed into prostitution or criminal gangs – there is not much they can do. In so many fields – technology, music, retail – there are Swedish firms leading the world. But its social model, created from the best of intentions, has ended up incubating a violent underworld in which too many immigrants are ensnared. As a friend of mine puts it, Sweden is still “10 parts heaven to one part hell” and you can avoid the hell (if you’re not a refugee). But the problems it now faces are hideous: shadow societies, mafia courts, gangland killings and conundrums like how to handle adult refugees who turn up with a child bride in tow. And how to pacify suburbs that are slipping out of police control. These issues all fit a certain description. They stem from Sweden’s decision to take larger numbers than it could cope with, leading to problems that were once never thought possible. It will pain the Swedish government to admit it. But on this point, at least, Donald Trump was right.

Blasphemy Laws In Denmark Used For First Time In Over 40 Years Against Man Who Filmed Himself Burning The Quran 

James Macintyre 23 February 2017

A man who filmed himself burning the Quran in December in 2015 has become the first person to be charged under Denmark's blasphemy law in 46 years. The 42-year-old recorded himself burning a copy of Islam's holy book in his back yard, and then posted the video on the anti-Islamic Facebook group 'Yes to freedom – no to Islam alongside the words, 'Consider your neighbour: it stinks when it burns.' In a statement yesterday afternoon, the Danish prosecutor Jan Reckendorff announced his decision to bring charges. 'It is the prosecution's view that circumstances involving the burning of holy books such as the Bible and the Quran can in certain cases be a violation of the blasphemy clause, which covers public scorn or mockery of religion,' he said. The case marks the fourth time in Danish history that anyone has been prosecuted under Denmark's blasphemy clause. Four people were sentenced for posting posters mocking Jewish teachings in 1938; two people were fined for carrying out a fake baptism at a masked ball in 1946; and two programme leaders at Danish Radio were exonerated in 1971 for airing a song mocking Christianity, according to Danish news outlet When the Jyllands-Posten newspaper famously published twelve cartoons in 2006 picturing the Prophet Mohammad, Danish prosecutors famously declined to invoke the country's blasphemy laws in 2006.

What’s Happening in Sweden? 24/7 Refugee Crime; That’s What!

The alt-left mainstream media has been in another delusional frenzy for the last 24 hours after President Trump made this comment at his rally in Melbourne, Florida, yesterday. “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” Trump said. “Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.” The left was quick to move into their typical mode of complete denial. According to liberals in the USA and in Europe, nothing is going on in Sweden. It’s a virtual paradise right now. Nothing to see in Sweden folks, move on. Reuters claimed erroneously that crime has fallen in Sweden since 2005. Of course it has. When you bring in hundreds of thousands of young, single, Muslim men, crime always sinks. Muslim men are virtual rocks of civilized Gibraltar for European society. Wrong! According to the Gatestone Institute, ‘Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300% and rapes by 1,472%. Sweden is now number two on the list of rape countries, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa. Mass immigration is continuing to claim victims in Sweden. Murder, assaults and rape have become everyday occurrences in this small country, with a population just short of ten million, which last year opened its doors to almost 163,000 immigrants. Although the massive influx of asylum seekers has decreased drastically since January 4, when Sweden implemented border controls on the Swedish/Danish border, the people who are already here pose a giant problem to municipalities, police and citizens. The police are fighting a losing battle against street crime, as well as daily incidents at asylum houses – general disturbances that include fights, rapes and threats. Here are some highlights of various types of refugee-induced crime taking place in Sweden in February and June 2016. These are the facts the alt-left media doesn’t want you to know about. February 3: Teenage girls attending the Vårboskolan high school in the Malmö suburb of Arlöv were sexually assaulted and stalked by young migrants in their 20s who take Swedish language classes at the school, according to the local daily newspaper, Sydsvenskan. As most of the migrants are male, the gender balance at the school has been severely skewed. February 18: A Somali-Swedish girl, 17, who was arrested in Vienna on suspicion of planning to join the Islamic State in Syria, was sentenced to one year in prison. February 22: A 27-year-old asylum seeker from Iran was sentenced to 10 months in prison for sexually assaulting a mentally disabled woman. June 1: On the evening of May 31, a man was pushed in front of a speeding subway train in Stockholm. The victim was a 23-year-old Swedish student at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. He received skull fractures and lacerations, lost half his foot, broke his ribs and collarbone and punctured one of his lungs; whether he will ever fully recover remains unclear. The day after, a 34-year-old Algerian-Swedish citizen was apprehended for the crime. June 8: Three Somali men in their 20s, who locked a 14-year-old girl in a room and took turns raping her, received very lenient sentences — and all three avoided deportation. Two of the men got two and a half years in prison. The third, who was also convicted of drug-related crimes and drunk driving, got three years. After serving their time, they will all be allowed to stay in Sweden, even though they are not Swedish citizens. June 9: Three young men, around 18, were indicted for a violent mugging attack against a Swedish man of about 25, outdoors in the town of Norrköping. One of the young men, Abdimalik Hassan Shido from Somalia, was also indicted for raping the victim at knifepoint in connection with the mugging. June 14: An exceptionally lenient verdict against a rapist from Yemen caused emotions to run high in Mariestad. Maher Al Qalisi attacked a 13-year-old girl, knocked her off a bicycle, knifed her in the face and raped her in a park — yet, he only got 18-months’ probation and will not be deported. June 23: Four men and a woman, all Syrians, were indicted at the Sundsvall Municipal Court for kidnapping, severely beating and sexually abusing a man. June 26: A 25-year-old Afghan was arrested at an asylum house in Mariannelund for the murder of his 22-year-old wife June 27: A Muslim man attacked the St. Pauli church in Malmö. He broke several windows, and when the police arrived, he was at the top of the church, shouting “Allahu Akbar!” A year before, in 2015, Swedes were in shock after learning of a double murder at an Ikea store. On August 10, two asylum seekers from Eritrea (the second largest source of asylum applicants in Sweden), were suspected of having grabbed knives from the kitchenware department and attacked two random Swedes. The victims were 55-year-old Carola Herlin and her 28-year-old son, Emil. What follows are excerpts from emails sent from private citizens to Prime Minister Stefan Löfven: From Mattias, a social worker and father of four, “a dad who wants my kids to grow up in Sweden the way I had the good fortune of doing, without explosions, hand grenades, car fires, violence, rape and murder at IKEA”: “Hi Stefan. I am a 43-year-old father of four, who is trying to explain to my children, ages 6-16, what is going on in Sweden. I am sad to say that you and your party close your eyes to what is happening in Sweden. All the things that are happening [are] due to the unchecked influx from abroad. You are creating a hidden hatred in Sweden. We are dissatisfied with the way immigration is handled in Sweden, from asylum housing to school issues. And it takes so long to get a job, many people give up before they even get close. Mattias” If the rapes and murders weren’t enough to shatter Sweden into a million pieces, the threat of ISIS infiltration among the refugee community has now reached Sweden’s shores. According to RT: Swedish security services are on high alert in connection with a potential terror threat, officials said. Reports in Swedish media say several Islamic State fighters have arrived in Sweden to carry out attacks on civilian targets in the capital Stockholm. Several months ago, a crew from 60 Minutes-Australia, traveled to Sweden to document the refugee crisis in the small country. The video below details their experiences as they are verbally and physically assaulted in a Somali no-go zone in Sweden. Yet, with all the crime taking place, courtesy of the Islamic invasion of Sweden, the left and their willing dupes in the Swedish government mock the President. Former Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt wrote on Twitter: “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound.” Yes, question do abound, Mr. Bildt, as in why is your country committing national suicide and why do you and the liberal media continue to reject reality? Other Swedes mocked Trump’s remark on Twitter using the hashtag #LastNightInSweden, posting pictures of reindeer, Swedish meatballs and people assembling the country’s famous IKEA furniture. Keep on laughing Sweden, as your women are raped, your cities turned into burning no-go zones and your orderly and clean streets turned into labyrinths of terror, courtesy of the Sons of Allah. Veritas vos liberabit, Sweden and delusional liberals; the truth will set you free. The left despises Mr. Trump because he has the intestinal fortitude to tell the truth, while they are happy to wallow in their own politically correct cowardice. That’s what’s happening in Sweden; alt-left lying media, deranged Swedes and assorted left wing fools. Rapes, assault, petty crime, murder, terror, those are the crimes taking place right now at this very moment in Sweden. That’s what President Trump meant. You know what he meant, but you choose to live in a state of total denial as Third World Visigoths rape, pillage and plunder your country six ways from Sunday. You have no future Sweden. Your future is a minaret rising above every Swedish town, a Hijab wrapped around a head of blonde hair, a public caning and a weekly beheading. Your country is done. Take the fork out of the meatball and stick it in your nation.

Lawmakers urge VA to explain rising cases of drug theft

By HOPE YEN Associated Press Feb 21, 5:25 PM EST

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The heads of two congressional committees said Tuesday they want the Department of Veterans Affairs to better explain its efforts to stem drug theft and loss in light of rising cases of missing prescriptions and other unauthorized use at VA hospitals. Rep. Phil Roe, who chairs the House Veterans Affairs Committee, said his panel had scheduled a hearing for Monday. The Associated Press reported last Monday on government data showing a sharp increase since 2009 in opioid theft and drugs that had simply disappeared at the VA. He said the panel would call on VA officials to discuss what they were doing to improve internal controls and hold employees accountable. "The fact that drugs are going missing from VA facilities further underscores the importance of oversight," said Roe, R-Tenn., who is a physician, citing the AP story. "This is a serious issue, and it must be addressed quickly." Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, also described incidents of rising drug loss and theft as concerning. The Wisconsin Republican last year raised issues of possible unauthorized use at the Milwaukee VA medical center, involving allegations that drugs from the hospital's pharmacy was going to nonveterans. His office said Tuesday that committee review was continuing. Data obtained by the AP show that doctors, nurses or pharmacy staff at federal hospitals - the vast majority within the VA system - siphoned away controlled substances for their own use or street sales, or drugs intended for patients disappeared. Aggravating the problem is that some VA hospitals have been lax in tracking drug supplies. Congressional auditors said spot checks found four VA hospitals skipped monthly inspections of drug stocks or missed other requirements. Investigators said that signals problems for VA's entire network of more than 160 medical centers and 1,000 clinics, coming after auditor warnings about lax oversight dating back to at least 2009. Veterans groups urged full accountability. "Medical practitioners at the VA have a responsibility to provide the best care for the injured and ill veterans in their charge, and these actions are contradictory to the very nature of their professional obligations," said Garry Augustine, a Vietnam-era combat-wounded Army veteran, who is executive director of Disabled American Veterans' Washington headquarters. The VA acknowledged it has had problems keeping up with monthly inspections. It said it was requiring hospitals to comply with inspection procedures and develop plans for improvement. In a broadcast interview that aired Tuesday, newly confirmed VA Secretary David Shulkin reiterated his support for VA employees as the "best in health care" but pledged to remove any bad actors. Shulkin served as the department's undersecretary of health while the drug problem was growing. "When you have one or two or three people that really aren't doing their job, they bring everybody down," he told "Fox and Friends." The VA said Tuesday it was compiling information requested by the AP more than three weeks ago on cases of drug loss and theft at its hospitals. Reported incidents of drug losses or theft at federal hospitals jumped from 272 in 2009 to 2,926 in 2015, before dipping to 2,457 last year, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. "Federal hospitals" include the VA's more than 1,100 facilities as well as seven correctional hospitals and roughly 20 hospitals serving Indian tribes.

Has There Been A “Nuclear Incident” In The Arctic?

Increased levels of radioactive iodine isotopes have been detected across Europe, and now the deployment of the Air Force’s WC-135 “Constant Phoenix” atmosphere-sniffing jet has deepened the mystery.

By Tyler Rogoway February 19, 2017

There have been rumblings regarding some sort of nuclear incident—or possibly incidents—in the Arctic over the last month. Multiple reports, some of them from official monitoring organizations, have reported iodine 131—a radioactive isotope often associated with nuclear fission—has been detected via air sampling stations throughout the region. The first detection of the isotope came during the second week of January, via an air sampling station located in Svanhovd, on Norway’s border with Russia’s Kola Peninsula. Within days, air sampling stations as far south as Spain also detected the presence of small amounts of the isotope. The fact that iodine-131 has a half-life of just eight days would point to the release occurring just days earlier, and not being a remnant of a past nuclear event. Because of the low levels of concentration, there is no health risk to the public or the environment, at least on a wide scale. By comparison, these recent measurements are roughly 1/1000th the size of what was detected during the Fukushima incident and 1/1,000,000th the concentration found in the nuclear tainted cloud that washed across Europe following the Chernobyl disaster. Iodine 131 levels monitored across Europe last month (IRIN graphic): After weeks without answers, the story seemed to pass as a peculiarity, not nearly an unprecedented one at that, until Friday when the US dispatched its WC-135 Constant Phoenix atmospheric testing aircraft to Europe without explanation. The highly unique aircraft are specifically designed to respond to nuclear incidents—especially those that include the detonation of nuclear warheads. By sampling the air over wide areas and at altitude, the aircraft can provide critical data to better understand the “signature” of a radiation release. During nuclear tests, this can help scientists define what type of weapon was detonated, and, in conjunction with other data, how large the blast was. They can also be used to measure the effects and scale of other radiological events, like the meltdown of nuclear plants. For instance, the WC-135s went to work following the 2011 earthquake that resulted in the meltdown of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant. This leaves us with a number of unanswered questions. The first: What are WC-135s doing up there? Was this a good opportunity for a training sortie and to support scientific endeavors, or is it in response to a specific incident? You can check twitter to see loads of people claiming this is proof that the Russians have restarted nuclear weapons testing at Novaya Zemlya near the Arctic. That assertion is problematic for a variety of reasons. The first is that we have no corresponding seismic data indicating a nuclear detonation from that region. Some have floated the possibility that a small tactical nuclear warhead may have been tested; once again, this still makes a big boom, and it is not clear if the levels of iodine-131 are indicative of such a test. Of course, politically speaking, restarting nuclear weapons testing would signal a massive shift in Moscow’s nuclear weapons policy. There has been some talk about even the US restarting its nuclear testing under President Trump, but this is largely speculation mixed with hyperbole. Even though we have seen Russia is willing to migrate away from key weapons treaties in order to obtain niche strategic capabilities, violating the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty would signal a whole other level of aggression and defiance. A more likely possibility is that some sort of limited nuclear material storage, research, or power generation incident has occurred. Russia uses nuclear propulsion for many of its active submarines as well as its Kirov class battlecruisers and its icebreakers. Russia also uses nuclear power in the arctic region for multiple applications. Not just that, but Russia’s northerly naval bases near the arctic are nuclear graveyards of the Cold War. The international community has worked with Russia over the last two decades to safely dispose of hundreds of Soviet-era nuclear submarines, but decommissioned hulls and reactor sections still sit idle waiting to be denuclearized and properly disposed of. Many have said that over the decades following the end of the Cold War, these vessels were just an accident waiting to happen. Some of these vessels remain on the Kola Peninsula near Murmansk. One of Russia’s largest nuclear waste containment facilities, where the reactors of these decommissioned submarines are stored, is also located nearby at Saida Bay. Today, some 80 reactors and their shredded components are stored there in massive casks. Eventually the facility will store 155 junked reactors and their waste. Disposing of such toxic, complex and ungainly machinery is no easy task and comes with its own share of risks. The Arctic is also dotted with other Cold War relics that relied on nuclear power to function, these include Russia’s nuclear lighthouses and outposts. And this is just what you can see, below the surface, hulks of sunken nuclear vessels and other waste still pose a major threat to the environment. It is not really a question of if they will do harm, but when. During the Cold War, Russia dumped all types of nuclear waste in the Kara Sea, including an estimated 17,000 containers and 19 vessels full of radioactive waste. The USSR also pitched 14 nuclear reactors, some with spent fuel rods, into the same body of water and other forms of lower-level nuclear waste was just poured directly into the sea. The Russian submarine K-27, which was scuttled in the Kola Sea, is said to be literally a ticking time bomb. That is just that one area, and other areas in the region, such as the Barents Sea (K-159) and Norwegian Sea (K-278), also have abandoned nuclear submarines and who knows what else lining the sea floor. Even the US left its own portion of nuclear waste in the northern latitudes, such as the once secret reactor at Camp Century, in Greenland, although this is minuscule compared to what the Soviets left behind. A graphic showing the known nuclear waste and wreckage sites near northern Europe and the Arctic (Bellona.org graphic): On top of all the Russian nuclear material that is actually rotting in arctic, there are also nuclear power, ship maintenance, and research stations that also dot Russia’s northern reaches. With all this in mind, if there was a peculiar release of iodine-131 into the atmosphere, it is much more likely to have come from the nuclear wasteland that the Soviet Union created, or from operational reactors in the region, and not from some sort of clandestine atomic testing. That doesn't mean it is impossible, just highly unlikely. There is even a possibility that it didn’t come from Russia at all, and was leaked by a reactor in Europe or elsewhere. Still, with the Arctic likely becoming a key battleground of the future—a reality that has been spurred by Russian military expansion into the region—and considering Moscow's great change in geopolitical tone and military stance over the last few years, suspicions surrounding Russia's true intentions in the region are at an all-time high. Now we’ll have to wait and see if the Pentagon releases more information on the movements and findings of its WC-135, and if there is yet another new spike in radiation coming from the region. If anything else, this mystery should serve of a stark reminder—and a warning—of what mankind has left behind near the arctic, and how perilous a threat it still poses nearly three decades after the Cold War officially ended. UPDATE: 2.22.17- The WC-135 Constant Phoenix along with a RC-135 Rivet Joint, as well as tanker support, have taken off on a mission to the Norwegian and Barents Sea. Read the update in full here.

'I was raped every day for a month in front of my children': Women reveal the horrors they endured as ISIS sex slaves... despite being SUNNI Muslims just like their captors

Abuses against Yazidi women are well documented under the brutal rein of ISIS

But Human Rights Watch says Sunni women are also being raped and tortured

Shocking reports come despite ISIS claiming to follow pure brand of Sunni Islam

One Sunni woman said she was blindfolded, beaten with cables and then raped

By Julian Robinson for MailOnline and AfpPublished: 02:08 EST, 20 February 2017 | Updated: 22:12 EST, 20 February 2017

Women have revealed the horrors they endured at the hands of ISIS sex slaves - despite being Sunni Muslims just like their captors. Abuses against Yazidi women have been well documented under the terror group's brutal rein in parts of Iraq and Syria. But according to Human Rights Watch there is now evidence that Sunni Arab women are now being targeted too with one victim telling the group how she was raped everyday for a month in front of her children. ISIS, which proclaimed a 'caliphate' straddling Iraq and Syria in June 2014, claims to follow a pure brand of Sunni Islam as it was practised in the time of Prophet Mohammed. But Human Right Watch has now documented cases of arbitrary detentions, beatings, forced marriages and rape by the jihadists on Sunni women who have fled the town of Hawijah, which is still under ISIS control. HRW recounted the story of Hanan, a 26-year-old whose husband had already fled Hawijah, who was captured by ISIS fighters along with 50 other women when they also attempted to escape the town in April 2016. ISIS fighters told the mother-of-three that her husband's flight made her an apostate and that she should marry the local jihadist leader. She refused, telling her ISIS captors 'Kill me, because I refuse to do that'. But she was blindfolded, beaten with plastic cables, suspended by her arms for some time and then raped. 'The same guy raped me every day for the next month without a blindfold, always in front of my children,' Hanan told HRW. 'My daughter suffers from an intellectual disability so she doesn’t really understand what she saw, but my older son brings it up often. I don’t know what to do.' A month after she was captured, Hanan’s father was able to locate her and gave ISIS a car and paid $500 for her release, she said. He was forced to sign a document stating that if she escaped ISIS-controlled territory, he would be killed. The ISIS fighter who had been raping her said he wanted to marry her, but she and her father refused, she said. In January 2017, she said, she escaped with the rest of her family to Kirkuk. She said she did not know what happened to the other women, but heard from the woman from another captive's family that she had been forced to marry her rapist. Another woman, 25, said she was captured while waiting to escape in October 2016 when ISIS fighters opened fire on her group and shot her son, six, in the back. She was hit in the shoulder with a gun butt and locked up with the other women in an abandoned house. Three female guards came and lashed each woman 65 times with a thin cane, she said. They were told that if they winced, they would get more lashes. Eventually her family paid for her release and found her son had survived after having four operations. Fawzia, 45, from Daquq said her house was occupied by three fighters after her husband fled to avoid being used as an ISIS spy. She said the men would bring girls aged about 16 into a room 'for about an hour' and that she could hear them crying. HRW said the issue was not given enough attention and that too little was being done to tackle the stigma that prevents many more victims from coming forward. 'Little is known about sexual abuse against Sunni Arab women living under ISIS rule,' said Lama Fakih, deputy Middle East director at HRW. 'We hope that the international community and local authorities will do all they can to give this group of victims the support they need,' she said. ISIS fanatics have justified the mass rape and sexual enslavement of women from the Yazidi minority - who are neither Arab nor Muslim - on the grounds that they are polytheists. The accounts collected by HRW often refer to ISIS fighters accusing the women of apostasy, or abandoning their faith, before abusing them.

'How is this ALLOWED?' Fury as Turkish PM holds election rally in GERMANY

HUNDREDS of protesters voiced their fury when Turkish Prime Minister visited a German city in a bizarre stunt for German-Turkish votes, after the leader was able to ban German-born journalists from the rally.

By Oli Smith PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, Feb 19, 2017 | UPDATED: 17:52, Sun, Feb 19, 2017

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim took a controversial detour on his visit to Germany on Saturday to stump for German-Turkish votes, ahead of a key national referendum. A whopping 1.5 million votes are up for grab in Germany, with the biggest Turkish diaspora outside of the country. However, many were outraged that a Turkish politician was allowed to hold a political rally as if he was in his own country. Others criticised the event as the PM banned several German journalists and restricted those who were allowed into the political speech. Those unhappy with the rally voiced their concern that the opposite scenario - a European politician campaigning in Turkey - would be unimaginable. The political address, which took place in a giant arena in Oberhausen, a city in western Germany, tried to rally support for April's constitutional referendum. Mr Yildirim told supporters that if they love their country, they have to vote yes - a decision which would dramatically expand the powers of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Critics claim the new presidential system would cement one-man authoritarian rule in the country. These fears prompted hundreds of opponents to protest outside the stadium. A German Government spokesman said of the event: "We assume that all people involved in the Oberhausen event will make sure that Germany will not become the setting for infighting among Turkish people." However, MPs criticised the planned speech after several German journalists were banned from covering the campaign event. People on Twitter also voiced concern that German taxpayers would have to foot the police bill for the massive arena rally. Those on social media also asked how this was allowed to happen in Germany. Others described the massive arena as being transformed into "mini-Istanbul". The event also comes just a day after Turkey detained a correspondent for German newspaper Die Welt. Rolf Mützenich a German MP from the Social Democrats, said: “Mr Yildirim should rather ensure the liberation of the journalist." Die Linke politician Sevim Dagdelen said Yildirim should be denied entry in order to prevent this "ad campaign for a Turkish dictatorship". Cem Ozdemir of the Greens added: "I find it shocking that a Turkish prime minister has no qualms about taking advantage of our democracy while he and his henchmen make their opponents disappear behind bars." German politicians said Turks in Germany should be politically involved in Germany, rather than flocking to Turkish politicians.

“Steve Bannon: ‘I Could Care Less’ About Repairing Relationship with ‘Opposition Party’ Media” — BREITBART Posted on February 19, 2017 by State of the Nation

Trump agrees with Steve Bannon that media is the ‘opposition party’

Rebecca Harrington Business Insider

President Donald Trump agreed with top adviser Steve Bannon in characterizing the media as an “opposition party” in an interview with CBN News’ “The Brody File” released Friday. Bannon, Trump’s chief White House strategist, drew ire when he used that phrase during an interview with The New York Times. “You’re the opposition party,” Bannon told the Times. “Not the Democratic Party. You’re the opposition party. The media’s the opposition party.” David Brody asked Trump if he believed that, as well, and the president said he agreed. “I’m not talking about everybody, but a big portion of the media, the dishonesty, total deceit and deception. It makes them certainly partially the opposition party, absolutely,” Trump said. “I think they’re much more capable than the opposition party. The opposition party is losing badly. Now the media is on the opposition party’s side.” Trump complained that he didn’t think the media treated him fairly, but said it didn’t matter because he had a “big voice” that voters responded to. “I actually said to myself, I say, they treat me so unfairly it’s hard to believe that I won,” Trump continued. “The media is a disgrace, and they’ve called me wrong from the beginning.”

BREAKING: @Reince’s Gal & @WhiteHouse Chief of Staff @KMWalsh_GOP Is Source Of Trump Leaks To @NYTimes & Others Feb 19, 2017 by GotNews

White House Deputy Chief of Staff and #NeverTrump Republican Katie Walsh has been identified as the source behind a bunch of leaks from the Trump administration to The New York Times and other media outlets, according to multiple sources in the White House, media, donor community, and pro-Trump 501(c)4 political group. “Everyone knows not to talk to her in the White House unless you want to see it in the press,” says a source close to the president. “The only question is whether or not she’s doing it at the behest of [White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus or if she’s doing it to advance herself in DC media circles.” One source in particular stands out: Walsh is close to Maggie Haberman, a New York Times reporter who wrote fawning pro-Republican National Committee stories during the presidential election. Walsh has also planted stories in The Washington Post and Politico. Walsh is referred to as “Madame President” in the White House, says a senior aide. “It isn’t a compliment.” You won’t hear this stuff from the lying mainstream media. Keep the GotNews mission alive: donate at GotNews.com/donate or send tips to editor@gotnews.com. If you’d like to join our research team, contact editor@gotnews.com. Walsh would have significant access as she controls the president’s schedule. There’s also reportedly a trove of e-mails where Katie Walsh and Reince Priebus discuss how to rid themselves of Trump, according to a former #NeverTrump consultant. “The president and his allies have been deliberately feeding her fake information in order to find her network,” says a source close to the president’s family. “It’s been going well.” Walsh was a #NeverTrump Republican during the campaign. Neither Walsh nor her family were supporters during the campaign, says a source from Walsh’s hometown of St. Louis. A White House investigation is planned into Walsh, who couldn’t be reached for comment. Stay tuned for more.

'Atmospheric river' drives ANOTHER catastrophic rain storm towards California - including its stricken dam - as state braces for MORE flooding and residents are told they could have just 15 minutes to evacuate

Rain and wind picked up in Northern California on Saturday renewing flood fears

Sections of Interstate-5 in Williams, CA overflowed, blocking traffic for hours

Rain is expected to continue through Tuesday prompting evacuations

By Anna Hopkins For Dailymail.com and Associated Press Published: 18:28 EST, 19 February 2017 | Updated: 07:36 EST, 20 February 2017

Engineers at the stricken Oroville Dam in Northern California have increased the rate at which they are draining water from the reservoir as a powerful rain storm driven by the phenomenon known as an 'atmospheric river' hits the state. In anticipation of the storm which threatens widespread flooding in many areas, supervisors increased the amount of water being channeled out of the dam to accommodate incoming rain. The amount of water flowing down the spillway was increased from 55,000 cubic feet a second (cfs) to 60,000 cfs on Sunday afternoon. Earlier this week, outflows were at nearly 100,000 cfs. However, an evacuation warning is still being issued as residents immediately below the dam could be at a major risk if the dam were to abruptly fail - as they would not be able to receive warning quickly enough to evacuate. The first outer rain bands from the powerful Pacific storm headed to Northern California brought light rain and wind and renewed warnings of possibly dangerous flooding in the already soggy region on Sunday. More wet weather is expected on Monday and Tuesday, and officials are preparing for the worst after Southern California was devastated by the strongest storm in decades earlier this week. The National Weather Service has reportedly urged California residents to be ready to leave their homes on a moment's notice. A discussion post said: 'If you were given less than 15 minutes to evacuate your home would you have everything you need and gas in your vehicle?' It continued: 'Northern California has become very vulnerable since being hit continuously with storms since early January and we want all residents in our region to plan ahead and be prepared.' The San Joaquin River at a measuring station near Vernalis remained at 'danger stage,' meaning it keeps approaching the top of levees, said Tim Daly, a spokesman with San Joaquin County Office of Emergency Services. 'When the water gets that high and more water is coming, there is just too much pressure and levees can break. They can be topped,' Daly said. Daly says residents of low-lying areas have been told to be ready to evacuate, especially those in San Joaquin River Club, a riverside, private neighborhood of 800 homes 10 miles south of Tracy. Residents of the community have been constantly patrolling the levees for signs of danger and holding meetings to discuss evacuation routes and preparedness, said Paula Martin, who is helping coordinate evacuation plans. 'We have a levee response team, a sand bagging team, teams to check on what walkers checking on the levees find,' Martin said. 'Our community is pulling together like real champs.' Water was also receding in the farm community of Maxwell, where dozens of people sought higher ground after creeks topped their banks and inundated houses on Friday, said Colusa County Assistant Sheriff Jim Saso said. Nobody was hurt as crews used boats to rescue residents from a low-lying neighborhood. 'We're telling those people to keep a bag close by and get ready to leave again,' Saso said. 'If the water comes back up, it's going to be those areas affected.' 'Widespread flooding will be likely as an atmospheric river (of moisture) takes aim somewhere along the central California coast,' the National Weather Service said. The damage to the spillway at Lake Oroville forced the evacuation of 188,000 people last weekend. The California Department of Water Resources said Sunday that the water level continues to fall even as they decrease the amount of water flowing down the spillway. During recent storms, authorities up and down the state have dealt with overflowing creeks, mudslide threats in foothill areas blackened by fires, road collapses and hundreds of toppled trees in neighborhoods. At least three deaths have occurred. Most of Southern California appeared to dodge any major disasters in heavy rain on Friday. But in the desert town of Victorville, several cars were washed down a flooded street and one man was found dead in a submerged vehicle after others were rescued, authorities said. The victim was later identified as 41-year-old Michael Douglas Williams of Victorville. The victim's wife Joel Williams told Victor Valley News: 'He was new to the area and would have never known how dangerous these streets can get. 'I just wish they would have closed the road, but it was still open.' She told the newspaper: 'He's leaving behind two children, an 11-year-old and a 16-year-old, it's going to be a tough to tell them.' The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said in a release that Williams had been 'inside an almost completely submerged vehicle'. In the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles, a man was electrocuted when a tree falling in heavy rain downed power lines that hit his car. On Saturday, searchers found the body of a man in his 20s who was swept down a rain-swollen gully in Thousand Oaks a day earlier. Three other people stranded by the water were rescued.

Central Valley urged to be ready to ‘evacuate quickly’ as another storm approaches

By Ryan Sabalow and Adam Ashton rsabalow@sacbee.com

MAXWELL Forecasters with the National Weather Service offered a stark warning Sunday for just about everyone living in the soggy, soaked Central Valley. “Pretty much anybody needs to be prepared for the possibility that they may have to evacuate quickly,” said Sacramento meteorologist Brooke Bingaman. Though most of the Valley had avoided further flooding by Sunday evening, the worst may be yet to come Monday and Tuesday, Bingaman said. On Sunday, the weather service issued a flood warning in urban areas and along small streams through Thursday for the counties that make up the Sacramento and northern San Joaquin valleys, as well as for most of the counties that sit along the valleys’ rim. “We may see flooding in locations which haven’t been impacted in many years,” the alert reads. In other words, those living anywhere near a river, a slough, a levee, a creek or a canal need to be ready to flee floodwaters at a moment’s notice. Case in point: Maxwell, a rice-farming town of 1,100 people an hour north of Sacramento. It flooded early Saturday as storm runoff overwhelmed a creek, filling a neighborhood and small business district with more than a foot of water. Bingaman said the same scenario in Maxwell could happen in just about any low-lying area. “We have been hit hard with storm after storm after storm since early January, so our soils are very saturated and it’s getting to the point where there’s no place for the water to go,” she said. In Maxwell, the water was receding Sunday morning and only one person was still at a Red Cross shelter in nearby Williams, said Jim Saso, assistant sheriff at the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office. But with the next storm approaching, he urged residents to be ready to get out again. “If they were affected (by the floodwaters) before, they’ll probably be affected again,” Saso said. In Maxwell on Sunday, residents hurriedly stacked sandbags made from rice sacks around their houses as they prepared for that eventuality. “It’s going to be worse than the last one,” said Richard Airozo, 77. Firefighters awoke him about 4 a.m. Saturday with a knock on the door, as water was seeping into his garage. By noon Sunday, he had returned to his house and removed soaked carpet from his living room. It was piled in a damp stack next to his driveway. Inside the house, a portable heater and fan were drying the room. Kim Troughton, 52, spent Saturday and Sunday cooking meals for firefighters and police in Maxwell’s fire hall. She said she wasn’t sure it made sense to start cleaning out her restaurant, Kim’s Country Cafe, before the next storm hit. “If we get more water, it’s damned if you do, damned if you don’t,” she said. Instead, she planned to spend the afternoon laying sandbags around her house. Two hours south in the San Joaquin Valley, locals nervously were watching the swollen San Joaquin River. The river at a critical measuring station near Vernalis, southeast of Tracy, had filled to “danger stage” Saturday night. That’s the point that emergency officials say water could overtop levees. “We’re bracing for flooding,” said Jenny Rich, a spokeswoman for San Joaquin County. “We’re anticipating it happening.” Low-lying areas near the river, which passes by Manteca, Lathrop, Stockton and Tracy, are all are at risk. But Rich said most of the troubles are likely to occur in southern San Joaquin County. Along the river, between Manteca and Tracy, teams of volunteers have been patrolling levees every two hours, brushing up on emergency action plans, and filling some 900 sandbags at the San Joaquin River Club, a private community of more than 800 people, said Rick Hall, a 10-year resident who is helping lead the volunteer effort. The hope was that the community could make through the next few days without hearing a blast from emergency sirens installed at the clubhouse and at a church that would warn of incoming floodwaters, he said. “Everybody’s worried, of course, but we’re just trying to be proactive,” he said. Some of the concerns are due to the precariously full Don Pedro Reservoir, which captures water from the Tuolumne River, a key tributary of the San Joaquin. The reservoir, which has more than twice the capacity of Folsom Lake, remained close to cresting Sunday. If it goes over the top of its spillway, it would send a gush of water that could overwhelm the small Tuolumne River channel, flood part of Modesto and cause the San Joaquin to rise. Based on Sunday’s forecasts, the spillway could start sending out releases as early as Tuesday, said Brandon McMillan, a spokesman for the Turlock Irrigation District, which manages New Don Pedro Dam. “Of course everything’s based on the weather, and that can change,” McMillan said. Three and a half hours to the north, engineers at troubled Oroville Dam said Sunday that the lake is ready to handle the influx of water from the approaching storms. Officials said Sunday that the lake levels continued to dip and are where they should be for this time of year to catch additional rain and melting snow. The lake had dropped Sunday to nearly 50 feet below the dam’s emergency spillway. On Feb. 7, during a round of winter storms, state engineers discovered a cavernous hole in the lower section of the dam’s main spillway, a 3,000-foot concrete span that acts as the dam’s primary flood-control outlet during the rainy season. Fearing the spillway would become inoperable, dam operators stopped the flows for a time, then gradually reactivated releases. With runoff from the stormy Sierra Nevada still rushing in, reservoir levels climbed, and on Feb. 11, water overtopped the dam’s emergency spillway for the first time in its 48-year history. Unlike the main spillway, which is lined with concrete, the adjacent emergency spillway dumps water in uncontrolled sheets over a 1,700-foot concrete lip onto a steep, wooded hillside. The next afternoon, a day and a half after the emergency system activated, the hillside just below the spillway lip was showing serious erosion, raising fears the structure would collapse. The concerns prompted mandatory evacuation orders in Butte, Yuba and Sutter counties covering nearly 200,000 people. The orders were lifted Tuesday, after the state Department of Water Resources cranked up releases on the main spillway, despite the damage to its midsection, and managed to lower reservoir levels below the emergency lip. On Sunday, the flows out the main, damaged spillway had been reduced to nearly half what they were during the heat of the crisis. Officials said the lower flows were allowing crews to use cranes and dredges to clear the debris that formed in the channel below the spillways. The debris has raised water levels in the Feather River below the dam to the point that Oroville’s power plant – the dam’s primary release outlet outside of flood season – can’t operate. Once debris is cleared and the power plant is restarted, the facility is capable of draining another 14,000 cubic feet per second from the lake. “We’re shooting to be able to re-operate it a week from Monday if we need to,” said Chris Orrock, a spokesman for the DWR, which manages the dam. But he noted “it’s not a guaranteed date.” Meanwhile, despite the wet weather, crews continued to haul rock and cement into the eroded areas below the emergency spillway in case it needs to be used again.

21 women assaulted by 'transgenders' in restrooms

Saturday, February 18, 2017 Michael F. Haverluck (OneNewsNow.com

Men have assaulted or violated women’s privacy in public bathrooms 21 times due to pro-LGBT transgender restroom policies, according to a list compiled by a nationally recognized pro-family organization. The Family Research Council (FRC) insists that – contrary to what homosexual activists claim – transgender-friendly policies and laws escalate the risk of women becoming victims of sexual attacks at the hands of men who claim to be women. Setting up assault It is argued by the Christian nonprofit group that so-called “non-discrimination laws” working to permit all people to use restrooms based on their gender identity – as opposed to their natural sex at birth – provide sexual predators with the opportunity to take advantage of the situation so they can partake in voyeurism and sexually assault women and children. "It is important to note that the concern is not that transgendered individuals are more likely to be sexual predators, but rather that sexual predators could exploit such laws by posing as transgendered in order to gain access to women and girls," FRC attorneys wrote their issue brief. "Beyond this, when companies such as Target implement any-sex bathroom/dressing room policies, it encourages criminals to take advantage of these policies to commit crimes." According to the legal group based in Washington, D.C., transgender activists have made a habit of discounting and denying the existence of reported assaults on women at the hands of transgender men entering women’s public restrooms. The attorney group notes that such activists have actually “scoffed” at suggestions that men in women’s facilities heighten the risk of such incidents. A right to offend? A list of 21 reported cases of women being sexually assaulted by transgender men has been compiled by FRC – incidents that span from 1999 to 2017 – with the most of the incidents occurring in women’s restrooms, locker rooms and other private spaces taking place within the past decade. Target stores – which have been the subject of a nationwide boycott campaign led by the conservative American Family Association (AFA) for putting women and children at risk due to their transgender policies in women’s facilities – provided the venue for the latest recorded assault. “The most recent case was reported on Jan. 17 by WPRI, concerning a man who mounted a camera inside the family bathroom at a Target store in Lincoln, Rhode Island,” The Christian Post (CP) reported from FRC’s list. “Umit Cakmak, 41, of Providence, was arrested by Lincoln police and charged with video voyeurism, with reports noting that the man already had an active warrant for the same crime.” Just months earlier, a Target on the other side of the country was the location where another sexual predator staged an assault on a woman. “In a similar case from July 2016, in Idaho Falls, a man who identifies as transgender was arrested on one count of felony voyeurism for taking photos of another woman changing clothes at a Target store in Ammon,” CP’s Stoyan Zaimov informed. Call to stop transgender men from targeting women and children AFA produced a similar list late last year to draw attention to how Target’s pro-LGBT policies unnecessarily put women and children in jeopardy. “The American Family Association also compiled a list of 10 cases back in September to show why the retail giant's policies of allowing male customers who identify as female to go into women's bathrooms and dressing rooms is dangerous for women and children,” Zaimov added. AFA President Tim Wildmon noted at the time that more and more women and children will continue to be assaulted at the hands of transgenders if Target continues to refuse to protect and value its customers. "The overwhelming evidence continues to pile up against Target's policy to allow men into women's restrooms and dressing rooms in its stores," Wildmon expressed when AFA’s list was announced. "Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims – and the proof keeps mounting." The effort calling Target to take pro-family measures and put an end to its problematic pro-LGBT privileges has caused a national stir – one that many claim is responsible for the retail giant’s uncharacteristic decline in profits in recent months. "Clearly, Target's dangerous policy poses a threat to wives and daughters,” Wildmon continued. “Over 1.4 million people have pledged to boycott Target stores until protecting women and children is a priority." Taking little heed of the warnings issued by pro-family advocates, Target responded to the controversy by refusing to end its pro-LGBT policies, while defending its stance to champion transgenders at the expense of its customers’ safety in bathrooms and changing rooms. "We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” Target declared in a public statement over the matter. “Everyone deserves to feel like they belong."

Infrastructure ‘in place’ for Mark of the Beast!

February 19, 2017

Commerce is key to human survival and those who control our commerce control the system and the people. Today, our money system is changing from a ‘substance’ system to a metaphysical ‘symbol’ system. Money is transitioning to cyberspace from our historical observable space. This change is monumental when understood. This means that our entire global monetary system will soon be cashless (no physical money units) and metaphysical (no substance units). Where does this eventually lead? I would suggest the ‘Mark of the Beast’ monetary system! Let’s see some evidence! What Is A Cashless Society? A cashless society is a society where currency notes or cash money are not used in monetary transactions. It is a hypothetical move or situation in favor of alternative means of exchange. Cashless societies in the past were based on the barter system where people exchanged their livestock for food crops or other goods. However, the present concept of a cashless society or country is a completely new thing. Here cashless transactions are made with the help of digital currencies. In a truly cashless society, legal tender (money) is exchanged and recorded only in the electronic digital forms. Our global economy is now mostly digital (computer driven). When Did The Trend To Go Cashless Begin? During the late 1980’s and the 1990’s, the growing popularity of electronic banking made the use of non-cash transactions and settlements popular. Digital payment methods became well established in countries across the world by the 2010’s. Online tools like Paypal, Google pay, NFC payments, Credit Cards, were the primary method for payments. Digital wallet systems operated by Apple, electronic banking and bill payment systems helped people make cashless transactions online. Some countries even started to set limits on transaction values that can be used for non-electronic payments to encourage cashless transactions. These limits are now growing in most countries. Countries which are now going Cashless and Digital: One country stands out as the flag bearer for digital money: Sweden. According to the Swedish central bank, cash transactions made up just 2 percent of the total value of payments made in 2015. The number is similar for 2016. An astonishing 900 of Sweden’s 1,600 bank branches no longer maintain cash deposits, a report in the Guardian said. As technology advances and the fight against tax evasion takes center stage globally, some countries are looking at Sweden as a possible model for promoting a digital (cashless) society. India’s attempt to digitize their economy has long been coming. Early in his term, Narendra Modi announced a much-needed drive to increase financial inclusion across the country and launched attractive financial schemes to bring India’s poor into the fold of the country’s banking system, from debit cards to pension plans. The goal is total digitization of the Indian economy. Paper notes are being called in and customers are being encouraged to open digital banking accounts. While digital payments are dominated by debit or credit cards in many Western countries, China’s consumers have jumped directly from cash to mobile. Of the country’s 710 million internet users – more than the United States and Europe combined – the utilization ratio of mobile online payments stands at 57.7%. This is growing exponentially. Put in plain English, the majority of people who go online are using their smartphones to pay for goods and services. 2016 has been the ‘Year of the Blockchain,’ with corporation after corporation, even nations, touting their interest and ability to use Bitcoin’s underlying advancement in their future business models. Will 2017 be the ‘Year of the National Digital Currency?’ Ukraine looks to enter the cashless society with a plan on creating their own national digital currency based on the Blockchain technology, according to Ukrainian news site Ukrinform. The United Nations ‘Better than Cash Alliance’ ( https://www.betterthancash.org/members/  government) currently has 25 nations that are members of the alliance. All are working on creating a cashless (digital) society for their countries. Pakistan, Afghanistan, Columbia, Peru, India, Philippines, Kenya, and Mexico are a few of the members. Which Are The World’s Most Cashless Countries? Rank Country Noncash Payments’ Share Of Total Value Of Consumer Payments % Of Population With A Debit Card

1 Belgium 93 86

2 France 92 69

3 Canada 90 88

4 United Kingdom 89 88

5 Sweden 89 96

6 Australia 86 79

7 The Netherlands 85 98

8 United States 80 72

9 Germany 76 88

10 South Korea 70 58

If we think about our global banking system, we can conclude that all banks are now part of the digital Swift payments system. Competitive payment systems which are emerging in Asia are also digital systems. All this is because we now have a computer driven global economy. Computers, algorithms, and select software programs determine what is happening within our global cyber markets. All businesses are converting their accounting systems to digital and this means that the ‘Mark of the Beast’ financial system is essentially here now. The implementation of the ‘Mark of the Beast’ system will likely start after our current bubble economy crashes. Our governmental authorities will then demand that everyone follow precise rules which mandate their economic behavior. Authorities will likely demand that everyone give allegiance to their digital (cashless) financial system. Those who refuse to comply will be restricted from using the system for their survival. This starts the clock for the ‘Mark of the Beast’ system which has been prophesied in scripture. Either you comply with the State or you must barter for your goods and services and take the risk of being arrested. Watch this video from Mr. Trump: https://youtu.be/vFofB6RaB4I  which reveals his inner sense that our global economy is now in a huge bubble. When will this bubble burst? It could happen any day now. It is currently being prevented from crashing by our Central Bank trading computers. Central Banks can continue this manipulation until confidence crashes due to all this manipulation and economic distortion. Watch: https://youtu.be/vFofB6RaB4I

BREAKING: Health Ranger threatened by left-wing media goons: “Destroy Alex Jones or we will destroy YOU”

Thursday, February 16, 2017 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) FULL DISCLOSURE: I am being threatened with the “complete destruction” of my reputation, my brand and my character by left-wing media operatives who have issued a new threat this week: “Destroy Alex Jones or we will destroy YOU.” Alex Jones, of course, is the founder of InfoWars.com, one of the most popular multi-media publishers of pro-America news, videos and radio broadcasts in the world. The warning implies that a barrage of left-wing media stories will target me personally — obviously spreading “fake news” lies — unless I agree to go public with “opposition research” targeting Jones that was previously delivered to me on a physical thumb drive. I destroyed the thumb drive and refused to kow-tow to the insane, criminal agenda of destruction and lies now being pursued daily by the unhinged, delusional left-wing media (and its puppet masters such as George Soros). I have no doubt I am being targeted with this threat because I previously served as a substitute host for the Alex Jones Show, from 2011 – 2013. After I left the show in 2013, I was contacted by another left-wing media source that offered to pay me $50,000 to “expose” Alex Jones. I refused. Later, someone with access to some very advanced technology was able to engage me in a phone text conversation where they impersonated Alex Jones’ cell phone number, but I quickly realized it was a ruse and cut off communication. In various ways, I have been hounded since 2013 by left-wing criminals who are attempting to exploit my contact with Alex Jones to discredit his entire organization and silence him forever. Time and time again, I have refused to take part in their nefarious plots. I flat-out refuse to be manipulated through false fear and intimidation tactics deployed by manipulative “media spooks” who are obviously very well funded but incredibly misinformed. I do not consider myself to be a “competitor” of InfoWars. I consider myself to be a defender of liberty, truth and healthy living. I am on “team humanity” to defend humanity against the sinister agendas of the vaccine industry, the biotech industry and the sick-minded depopulation agenda of the most dangerous globalists of all. Anyone who is on “team humanity” is my ally, not my enemy. Malicious effort now under way to take out prominent Trump supporters and silence their support of our President Now, it seems, the stakes are even higher because of the victory of President Trump, a true patriot and determined warrior who is waging an epic battle against globalist forces, the “fake news” media and the corrupt elements of the so-called “deep state.” As the publisher of Trump.news, a pro-Trump REAL news website, I am being targeted as part of a left-wing media effort to discredit and destroy all Trump supporters who are prominent media innovators or personalities. The following document, entitled Democracy Matters, Strategic Plan for Action, reveals the sinister tactics of the left-wing media to discredit and destroy any people who support Donald Trump’s vision for America. The document states: (bold added) In the next four years, Media Matters will continues its core mission of disarming right-wing misinformation, while leading the fight against the next generation of conservative disinformation: The proliferation of fake news and propaganda now threatening the country’s information ecosystem. Here’s what success will look like: * Serial misinformers and right-wing propagandists inhabiting everything from social media to the highest levels of government will be exposed, discredited. * Internet and social media platforms, like Google and Facebook, will no longer uncritically and without consequence host and enrich fake news sites and propagandists. * Toxic alt-right social media-fueled harassment campaigns that silence dissent and poison our national discourse will be punished and halted. … Shareblue will take back social media for Democrats. We will delegitimize Donald Trump’s presidency by emboldening the opposition… * Trump allies will be forced to step down or change course due to news pushed by Shareblue. Media Matters will… “weaponize our research products to understand and take action against the changing media ecosystem and the extremists seeking to manipulate it…. Key alt-right figures will lose credibility and influence in response to our research and pressure.” A $13.4 million budget will allow Media Matters to “create a 34-person research department” [to destroy the opposition]. Intimidate Trump supporters into silence (or get them to turn on each other) It’s obvious from this document that a whole new effort of malicious intimidation and threats is being deployed against prominent Trump supporters who have achieved any substantial level of new media success. The goal is clear: To intimidate Trump supporters into silence, or — even better for the left-wing media — get pro-Trump publishers and journalists to turn on each other and destroy each other from within. I’ve already seen recent examples of insider attacks being leveled against Alex Jones and InfoWars. I have no doubt the very same cookie cutter-style attacks will also be recycled to target Natural News and the Health Ranger. It all stems from a blueprint plan that’s designed to demoralize Donald Trump supporters, then demonize and destroy them. It’s right out of the same playbook the radical left-wing media invoked in an attempt to destroy Trump from day one (an effort which spectacularly failed, by the way). In fact, that’s the bigger point in all this. Every person attacked by the left-wing media just gets more popular in the same way Trump became ever more popular as the media smeared him. Look at the case of Milo Yiannoupoulos from Breitbart: The malicious media attacks on his character — falsely labeling him part of the “alt-right” movement — resulted in him being offered a $250,000 advance on a book deal that has already seen his book reach the #1 ranking on Amazon even before its launch! Alex Jones, too, rode a wave of hit pieces and defamation against his character to become a powerful voice that now reaches more people than CNN! Every effort to destroy Alex, Milo, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge or Steve Bannon have only backfired on the insane left-wing media. It is precisely because of their malicious attacks and deceptions that Donald Trump won the election. The public was tired of the lies, and the backlash was truly historic. We must stand with Trump, or we’ll lose America forever But the battle has only just begun. As I’ve repeatedly warned in my Health Ranger Report podcasts, we must now stand with Trump and defeat the insane criminal forces that seek to destroy this nation and silence reason. The radical, unhinged Left is now the single greatest threat to the future of our nation, and they will use ANY means to silence or destroy their political opponents, including violating the law, committing acts of extreme violence, publishing malicious falsehoods, citing fictitious “sources” in their stories, misrepresenting their words with dishonest editing, etc. So I’m going to be crystal clear in my message to these criminal left-wing bullies and intimidation operatives: COME AND TAKE IT. You want to silence me? Bring a team and prepare to take casualties. Unless you somehow manage to put a bullet in my brain, there is no possibility whatsoever that I’m going to carry out your nefarious agenda and join your sick, demented cabal of insane f#cktardery. You might be able to pull it off if you bring a big enough force, but it’s going to cost you. I’m not going to lay down to your fake intimidation tactics… especially not when we have already won! We are the new media. We are rightfully trusted by the public because we’ve earned that trust by honestly reporting the real news. We are where people go for authentic news instead of the fake news you’ve been peddling for decades. I publish over 100 websites, and readership keeps rising by the day because we are taking your readers away from your lame “fake news” websites like the Washington Post and New York Times. People are turning off your lies and turning on the truth at Natural News, NewsTarget, Trump.news and other websites we run to protect liberty, defend the Republic and expose the destructive anti-human agendas of the political Left and the globalists that run them all.

WikiLeaks Drops Bombshell Report Exposing CIA Involvement In 2012 French Election…

Posted on February 16, 2017 by sundance

Today WikiLeaks drops a bombshell exposing President Obama and Hillary Clinton using the CIA to manipulate the outcome of the 2012 election in France (full pdf below).

According to documents released today by WikiLeaks the CIA ordered covert targeted activity in the 2012 French presidential election which included French Politicians Francois Hollande, Nicolas Sarkozy & Marine Le Pen. WIKILEAKS – All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA’s human (“HUMINT”) and electronic (“SIGINT”) spies in the seven months leading up to France’s 2012 presidential election. The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks as context for its forth coming CIA Vault 7 series. Named specifically as targets are the French Socialist Party (PS), the National Front (FN) and Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) together with current President Francois Hollande, then President Nicolas Sarkozy, current round one presidential front runner Marine Le Pen, and former presidential candidates Martine Aubry and Dominique Strauss-Khan. The CIA assessed that President Sarkozy’s party was not assured re-election. Specific tasking concerning his party included obtaining the “Strategic Election Plans” of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP); schisms or alliances developing in the UMP elite; private UMP reactions to Sarkozy’s campaign stratagies; discussions within the UMP on any “perceived vulnerabilities to maintaining power” after the election; efforts to change the party’s ideological mission; and discussions about Sarkozy’s support for the UMP and “the value he places on the continuation of the party’s dominance”. Specific instructions tasked CIA officers to discover Sarkozy’s private deliberations “on the other candidates” as well as how he interacted with his advisors. Sarkozy’s earlier self-identification as “Sarkozy the American” did not protect him from US espionage in the 2012 election or during his presidency. The espionage order for “Non Ruling Political Parties and Candidates Strategic Election Plans” which targeted Francois Holland, Marine Le Pen and other opposition figures requires obtaining opposition parties’ strategies for the election; information on internal party dynamics and rising leaders; efforts to influence and implement political decisions; support from local government officials, government elites or business elites; views of the United States; efforts to reach out to other countries, including Germany, U.K., Libya, Israel, Palestine, Syria & Cote d’Ivoire; as well as information about party and candidate funding. Significantly, two CIA opposition espionage tasks, “What policies do they promote to help boost France’s economic growth prospects?” and “What are their opinions on the German model of export-led growth?” resonate with a U.S. economic espionage order from the same year. That order requires obtaining details of every prospective French export contract or deal valued at $200m or more. The opposition espionage order also places weight on obtaining the candidates’ attitudes to the E.U’s economic crisis, centering around their position on the Greek debt crisis; the role of France and Germany in the management of the Greek debt crisis; the vulnerability of French government and French banks to a Greek default; and “specific proposals and recommendations” to deal with “the euro-zone crisis”. The CIA espionage orders published today are classified and restricted to U.S. eyes only (“NOFORN”) due to “Friends-on-Friends sensitivities”. The orders state that the collected information is to “support” the activities of the CIA, the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA)’s E.U section, and the U.S. State Department’s Intelligence and Research Branch. The CIA operation ran for ten months from 21 Nov 2011 to 29 Sep 2012, crossing the April-May 2012 French presidential election and several months into the formation of the new government. (LINK) Here’s the CIA Intelligence Release from WikiLeaks: To answer that question, you must also remember the research and evaluation rules. To understand activity within any intelligence action any observer must do two things: #1 You must stay elevated. If you try to get into the weeds you will be lost because your insight will be lacking specificity briefs.

#2 You must always reflect upon the recent historic context of the engagement you are observing. Including, most importantly, the engagements of the parties therein. CTH is in a unique position to highlight what could be happening because we have tracked the larger globalist movement through the key state and agency apparatus where their activity is most transparently obvious, specifically France. It was slightly less than a week ago when we shared the transparently obvious State Department effort to influence the 2017 French Election – SEE HERE – CNN began broadcasting a narrative that Russia was set to interfere and attempt influence over the upcoming election. Excerpt: Those who follow the messaging from within the unofficial news agency of the U.S. State Department, CNN or CNNi, might have noticed a report delivered by Wolf Blitzer yesterday claiming the Russians were set to influence another nationalist election victory, this time in France. With a vote coming in April, could French elections be targeted by the same Russian hackers accused of meddling in the US campaign? (CNN LINK) The entire proclamation by Blitzer, and the executive level CNN folks who put it together, was almost identical to the previous claims of a vast Russian conspiracy influencing the U.S. election and the victory of President Donald Trump. The difference between November 2016 and today, is this time CNN is attempting to get out ahead of an election rather than responding to the outcome therein. In essence, CNN -and by extension the progressive State Department officials remaining within the shadow deep state construct- is trying to influence the French Presidential Race. Blaming the Russians in advance is an attempt to weaken Marine Le Pen. But why would they do this, you might ask. Well, those of you who have followed the historic research on the State Department might well remember the “Rivkin Project“. The globalist agents who carry a vested interest are simply not willing to concede another loss in their decades long approach toward eliminating nationalist sentiment. (read more) This release today from WikiLeaks appears to be a push back against the U.S. State Department effort. [As outlined in the CNN and CNNi narrative.] However, it would also be naive to believe this release today was the exclusive work of WikiLeaks. The timing, against the backdrop, is just way too coincidental. This release today appears to be an outcome of Russia pushing back against the U.S. State Department intention (the shadow globalist operatives embedded there), by delivering information to WikiLeaks that would undercut the U.S. DoS objectives to undercut Marine Le Pen. This early in 2017 it’s not the U.S. Trump State Department engaging in France; this is activity from the remaining elements of the Obama Globalist State Department who are still in place. [might also explain Putin’s ship off the East coast – a ‘ping’ of sorts] In essence, what we could be witnessing is the very public visibility of two groups of interests, U.S. DoS and Russia, conducting a proxy psy-ops campaign – with each state actor using competing conduits. • The U.S. DoS using CNN and CNNi, • and Russia hitting back using WikiLeaks. [The French election outcome is the objective.] Holy Cats ! Yes, this is pretty darned stunning. Expanding and staying elevated – This confluence of events: If the Wikileaks source is Russia, as the motive would seem to be…. then this would also indicate, or at least support the notion, that Russia was the source of the 2016 WikiLeaks DNC and Podesta releases. Perhaps this entire construct of covert state sponsored activity is what explains why Team Clinton (Democrats, Media, professional left et al) are so violently vitriolic toward Russia as an outcome of their 2016 election defeat. Accepting that possibility does not indicate the information contained within either release is inaccurate, but rather to say there is a historic explanation here for current motives of both parties, Russia and Clinton. That motive is not being expanded by anyone. fbi-clinton-4-shadow-government 

The remaining globalists embeds within the U.S. Department of State are trying to influence the French election (CNNi as a participatory agent). Russia is pushing back against the U.S. activity by exposing the 2012 CIA activity via WikiLeaks. The Globalists (the shadow governments) are losing; with the losses they are getting dragged into the sunlight, and striking out. Things begin to make a lot more sense….

Manhattan-Sized Iceberg Just Broke Away from Antarctica

Environment 01:24 17.02.2017(updated 08:31 17.02.2017)

Rising temperatures in the waters surrounding Antarctica have caused an enormous chunk of ice the size of Manhattan to break away, according to experts. Satellite imagery from January shows a huge section of the Pine Island Glacier separating from the continent. Areas of Antarctic ice have scores of cracks, according to National Geographic, indicating that glacial calving may continue or increase. The break "is the equivalent of an "aftershock'" in the wake of a July 2015 calving event, Ohio State University glaciologist Ian Howat told NASA. While the last ice break-off was approximately 225 square miles, the most recent chunk is smaller, about the size of the island of Manhattan. “Such ‘rapid fire’ calving does appear to be unusual for this glacier,” according to Howat. Nevertheless, the incident “fits into the larger picture of basal crevasses in the center of the ice shelf being eroded by warm ocean water, causing the ice shelf to break from the inside out,” he said. The surface area of the ice has hit an all-time low of 872,204 square miles, according to the US National Snow and Ice Data Center. The Pine Island Glacier is "retreating and thinning," according to Simon Gascoin, of France’s National Center for Scientific Research. Waters below the Pine Island Glacier have gotten about 1 degree fahrenheit warmer over the past 27 years, Climate Central reports. "The recent rifting and calving could totally be evidence of an ongoing, rapid disintegration of the ice shelf, mostly due to ocean warming," Gascoin said.

Summit of the Embattled: Trump-Netanyahu Meeting Couldn't Come at Better Time

Published February 15, 2017 By Benny Avni, The New York Post

Wednesday at the White House: the summit of the embattled.

After a combined 11 years as Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu is under police inquiry that may soon turn into a criminal-corruption investigation. With the resignation of his national security adviser Monday, President Trump is facing his first serious White House crisis. And that’s the moment Bibi, who as premier never enjoyed a friendly White House for even a moment, comes to say hi to an old buddy from New York. Truth is, both leaders could probably use a distraction and a friendly face. But though they’ll be discussing a range of Mideast issues, the only one that really matters is Iran. Oh yes, the Palestinian issue will be on the agenda, and Foggy Bottom-types, media eggheads and others in the ever-growing peacemaking industry will very carefully study every word for signs of change or continuity. But, for all Trump’s boast that he’s uniquely qualified to make the ultimate deal, there’ll be no serious breakthrough on this front. Maybe the Israelis or the Americans will budge a bit to one side on settlements.

Putin: NATO keeps trying to draw Russia into confrontation, meddle in internal affairs

Published time: 16 Feb, 2017 10:57 Edited time: 16 Feb, 2017 11:25

NATO is constantly trying to draw Russia into a confrontation, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. He added that members of the alliance continue to interfere in Russia’s domestic affairs. The accusations came as Putin addressed senior members of the Russian intelligence agency FSB on Thursday. The president said that over the past years the global security situation “has not improved, but on the contrary, many existing threats have only become more serious.” NATO with its “newly-declared official mission to deter Russia” is one such threat, Putin said. “This is the goal behind the expansion of this military bloc. It happened before, but now they have found a new justification which they believe to be serious,” Putin said. “In fact, they are constantly provoking us, trying to drag us into a confrontation,” Putin stated, adding that NATO members “are continuing their efforts to interfere in our domestic affairs with the goal of destabilizing social and political order in Russia proper.” Putin added that foreign intelligence agencies continue intensive operations in Russia. “In the past year 53 foreign intelligence operatives and 386 agents of foreign intelligence services have been busted,” he said. The president also expressed regret over Russia and Western nations no longer coordinating efforts to fight against common enemies such as terrorist groups. “It's in everyone's interest to resume dialogue between the intelligence agencies of the United States and other members of NATO,” Putin said

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS CONGRESS

February 15, 2017

Let's compare what President Trump has accomplished since the inauguration (with that enormous crowd!) with what congressional Republicans have done. In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat Boeing into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, imposed a terrorist travel ban, met with foreign leaders and nominated a Supreme Court justice, among many other things. (And still our hero finds time to torment the media with his tweets!) What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking? More than 90 percent of congressional Republicans kept their jobs after the 2016 election, so you can cross "staffing an entire branch of government" off the list. Only the Senate confirms nominees, which they've been doing at a snail's pace, so they've got loads of free time -- and the House has no excuse at all. Where's the Obamacare repeal? Where are the hearings featuring middle-class Americans with no health insurance because it was made illegal by Obamacare? The House passed six Obamacare repeals when Obama was president and there was no chance of them being signed into law. Back then, Republicans were full of vim and vigor! But the moment Trump became president, the repeals came to a screeching halt. After the inauguration (gigantic!), House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put out a plan for repealing Obamacare ... in 200 days. They actually gave their legislative agenda this inspiring title: "The Two Hundred Day Plan.” TWO HUNDRED DAYS! What was in the last six Obamacare repeals? If we looked, would we find "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" carefully typed out 1 million times? Seriously, what does Paul Ryan's day look like? This is the Silence of the Lambs Congress. They're utterly silent, emerging from the House gym or their three-hour lunches only to scream to the press about Trump. To the delight of the media, these frightened little lambs are appalled by nearly everything Trump does. They've been especially throaty about Trump's temporary travel ban from seven terrorist nations -- as designated by the Obama administration (and by everybody else who hasn't been in a deep freeze in a Finnish crevasse for the past decade). Just like the six Obamacare repeals, a refugee ban was already written and passed by one house of Congress. Then suddenly: the Silence of the Lambs. McConnell and Ryan are hiding under their desks, as Trump is being attacked from every side. Way, way back, 15 long months ago, congressional Republicans didn't have a problem with a total ban on Syrian and Iraqi refugees. Not for a mere three months like Trump's order -- but permanently, unless the director of the FBI, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and the director of national intelligence personally certified that a particular refugee posed no danger to the U.S. That bill passed the House with an overwhelming, veto-proof majority, including 47 Democrats. Then it went to the Senate to die. But when President Trump imposed a comparatively mild three-month ban on immigrants from Syria, Iraq and five other terrorist nations, the same Republicans who had voted for a limitless ban on refugees whiled away their days calling reporters to denounce Trump. A little more than a year ago, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, bragged in a press release that he had introduced the House's refugee ban, calling it a bill that would "protect Americans from ISIS.” But when it came to Trump's three-month pause, McCaul told the Post that Trump's order "went too far.” I guess that ISIS problem just sort of faded away. (Or maybe we should check with Mrs. McCaul, inasmuch as it's her family money that makes Rep. McCaul one of the richest members of Congress.) Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., who voted for the House's permanent refugee ban, demanded that Trump immediately rescind his travel ban, babbling on about the "many, many nuances of immigration policy" -- which he must have learned about on one of his congressional jaunts to a Las Vegas casino. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., said that Trump's order "overreaches and undermines our constitutional system." Evidently, he was suddenly struck by the realization that it's "not lawful to ban immigrants on the basis of nationality," despite having voted to ban refugees on the basis of nationality just 15 months earlier. (I'm OK with this, provided the Syrians, Somalis and Yemenis are sent to live on Justin's street after being told about his support for gay marriage.) Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Ben Sasse, R-Neb., both rushed to The Washington Post with this refreshingly original point: NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS! Why, thank you, senators! Where would the GOP be without you? The Post also quoted spokesmen -- spokesmen! -- for Republican Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Rob Portman of Ohio and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina complaining about not having been briefed on Trump's order. The senators themselves were far too busy to talk to the press because they were -- wait, what were they doing again? Words With Friends? Decoupage? Since the election, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., has been mostly occupied polishing his anti-Trump quotations to get a pat on the head from an admiring media. He complained about Trump's order, saying it was "poorly implemented" and that he had to find out about it from reporters. (I wonder why.) This is the moment we've been waiting for our entire lives, but Republicans in Congress refuse to do the people's will. Their sole, driving obsession is to see Trump fail. I am not presently calling for these useless, narcissistic, Trump-bashing Republicans to be defeated in their re-election bids, but they're on my Watch List. To be cleared, they can start by getting off the phone with The Washington Post and passing one of those six Obamacare repeal bills.

Dark Forces At Work To Start WW3 As War-Hungry 'Enemies Of America Within' Continue To Sabotage President Trump

- Gerald Celente's Advice To President Donald Trump: 'Play The Trump Card, There Are No Rules, That Is The Lesson'

February 15, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

"His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire." Matthew 3:12 It has long been warned that when the time comes, the wheat will be separated from the chaff and recent events in Washington DC and across the planet show us that is the direction we are now headed. We warned yesterday in a story on ANP that a 'Biblical event' awaits us with globalists in America who hold 'terroristic tendencies' (and who quite literally armed and supported ISIS terrorists during the Obama regime) still pushing for a World War 3 with Russia. With their 'satanic nwo' completely falling apart with Brexit and the presidency of Donald Trump blowing massive holes in their plans, we get new indications today that 'enemies of America within' are once again pushing for our destruction. We also reminded you just days ago that only weeks before the election, tensions between the US and Russia were at a fever-pitch and quickly headed towards nuclear war and potential worldwide nuclear annihilation, especially had Hillary Clinton 'stolen' the US presidency, thus assuring a World War 3 with Russia according to Russian president Vladimir Putin. And now we hear from former Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich in the 2nd video below who argues what we're now watching coming from the Neocons who want death and destruction could blow up in America's faces. In the first video below, Christopher Greene of AMTV warns us the dark forces spoken of in this story are on a mad rush to start up World War 3 despite the will of President Trump. First, from the Fox News Kucinich interview. Former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) was a guest Tuesday on "Mornings with Maria" discussing how the intelligence community is seeming to upend President Donald Trump in the wake of Michael Flynn's resignation as national security adviser. The former Democratic presidential candidate and Fox News contributor said the bigger issue here is that the phone conversations between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were intercepted and leaked to the media. "The American people have to know that there's a game going on inside the intelligence community where there are those who want to separate the U.S. from Russia in a way that would reignite the Cold War," Kucinich said. "That's what's at the bottom of all this. It's early in the morning, it's Valentine's Day, but wake up America!" He said he believes money is a factor for those looking to cash in on any conflict between the U.S. and Russia. "What's going on in the intelligence community with this president is unprecedented," he said. "They're making every effort to upend him. Who knows what the truth is anymore?" Kucinich said Trump must get a hold of the intelligence community because he believes there is "definitely something going on" to undermine the president. Why have terrorists supporters in America such as psychopaths Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and all of the other filth who've helped to put Christians in the crosshairs in the Middle East and around the world while arming our enemies as outright stated by Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard in her STOP ARMING TERRORISTS bill in Congress NOT been arrested in a massive round-up of 'terrorist supporters' and 'enemies of America within'? Or is it ok for terrorist-supporters like John McCain to arm the terrorists killing Christians in Syria and around the world just because they do the work of cowards in Washington DC? If you ask us, that 'terrorist-supporter-roundup' should have commenced long ago! We had reported on ANP as recently as October of 2016 that Steve Quayle might soon have to 'put up his red screen', thus indicating to us that nuclear was was imminent and it was time to hunker and bunker down. While the election of President Donald Trump had seemingly put off that possibility, new events both here in America and across the planet warn us that it may be once again time to revisit that dreadful thought. As Gerald Celente recently warned USA Watchdog Greg Hunter, there is a definite movement to take out President Donald Trump by the death-and-war-hungry neocons seeking death, war and destruction. You can hear the full interview with Hunter and Celente in the final video below. Trends forecaster Gerald Celente says the resignation of top security advisor Michael Flynn is further proof there is an ongoing “destabilization campaign” and a “definite movement to take out Trump.” Celente explains, “When Trump came in, one of the first things he said in his campaign is let’s stop this fighting with Russia, they’re not the threat that everyone says they are. Since he’s been saying that, he’s been attacked. Let’s go back to Michael Flynn. Trump and Flynn say the CIA has become too politicized. A lot of these agencies have been wasting money and giving us bad information. That was what a lot of Flynn was about. Let’s not forget that Obama dumped Flynn because those were the things that Flynn was saying that Obama didn’t want to hear.” The issues dreamed up to take out Trump have been ongoing since the day Trump won the 2016 election. Celente lists the top three and says, “The first issue was the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming. The second one was the Electoral College, and you remember the third one? It was we need a vote recount in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. That’s all we heard. The media has been attacking Trump from day one. They are bringing in the Flynn thing because he was an anti-neocon. That’s the reason. The neocons want war. They want destruction. They want the military industrial complex to continue to build. . . . I don’t know why Trump is still campaigning. He should keep his people off the air. They shouldn’t go on the presstitute networks.” Celente says Trump can win by playing his own game. When it comes to his own GOP party, Celente explains, “He didn’t need them. He doesn’t need them now. Trump beat Hollywood. He beat the Katzenbergs, the Spielbergs, the Clooneys and De Niros. He beat Silicon Valley. . . . What I am saying is Trump can beat and win. He beat all of them. He beat Obama. It wasn’t the Russians that made the election go his way. . . . Play the Trump card. There are no rules. That is the lesson.” President Trump has something that the globalists seeking to blow up the world and destroy America will never have - the huge and unwavering support of the American people despite what the MSM or whining protesters in American streets will tell us. And now we hear directly from former Democratic Congressman Kucinich in the brand new first video below who also warns us "there’s a game going on inside the intelligence community where there are those who want to separate the US from Russia in a way that would re-ignite the cold war”. Kucinich doesn't hold back one bit, warning America bluntly that it's time to wake up! In the recent story over at the Daily Mail that Steve Quayle linked to on his website on Tuesday we learned that Russian military jets have once again buzzed a US destroyer in the Black Sea with 4 Russian military aircraft conducting low passes against the USS Porter back on February 10th. What the Daily Mail called just the latest of a series of belligerent moves of President Donald Trump's young presidency while the NSA in America is dealing with an internal crisis, we see that 'enemies of America within' will stop at nothing to get the war they so eagerly want, even if that means bringing down President Trump and America along with them. And as NATO continues to push Russia, we read in another new story from the Daily Mail that Russian troops in amphibious vehicles have been practicing 'invastion tactics' after NATO deployed troops to the Baltic states allegedly to provide them 'protection'. For those who think this is merely 'fear mongering', did you know that last week, Putin told the Russian air force to 'prepare for a time of war'? It's long been warned by Russian insiders living here in America that if America brings war to Russia, we should all be prepared for 'the end'. What does 'the end' mean? From the Russian insiders living here in America.: We now feel that it is our duty, as Russians living in the US, to warn the American people that they are being lied to, and to tell them the truth. And the truth is simply this: If there is going to be a war with Russia, then the United States will most certainly be destroyed, and most of us will end up dead. Thus, if tomorrow a war were to break out between the US and Russia, it is guaranteed that the US would be obliterated. At a minimum, there would no longer be an electric grid, no internet, no oil and gas pipelines, no interstate highway system, no air transportation or GPS-based navigation. Financial centers would lie in ruins. Government at every level would cease to function. US armed forces, stationed all around the globe, would no longer be resupplied. At a maximum, the entire landmass of the US would be covered by a layer of radioactive ash. We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States. Are YOU prepared to live without electricity, the internet, and all of the other luxuries that make living in America today 'modern', all to satisfy the blood lust of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Hillary Clinton and the rest of the criminal globalists? America would be much better off if Trump just locked them all up for supporting ISIS terrorists. And why would globalists politicians such as McCain and Clinton want massive death and destruction in America? In the 3rd video below from Paul Joseph Watson over at Infowars he tells us all about the globalists take down of Michael Flynn, just the latest sign to us that those who hate 'life' and who hate 'America' will stop at nothing to complete their evil, satanic plans for Americans and the world while bringing us only more death and destruction.

New World Order Forming Under Pagan Temple of Ba’al Arch?

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 16, 2017 , 12:30 pm

“For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moav, and the Hagrites.” Psalms 83:6-7 (The Israel Bible™)

A replica of a Roman arch that once stood in front of the pagan Temple of Ba’al was erected for the World Government Summit in Dubai this week, creating a scene that one rabbi claims symbolizes the dangerous fusion of Ishmael and Edom against Israel. The original Roman Victory Arch stood for 1,800 years in Palmyra, Syria, until it was destroyed by ISIS in October 2015. A full-size 28-meter tall replica of the arch was created last year by the Institute for Digital Archeology, a joint project of Oxford and Harvard universities, and has been displayed twice before. The replica was erected for the opening of the World Government Summit that opened on Sunday in Dubai. Based in the United Arab Emirates, the summit is an international organization for global dialogue where leaders in government, business, and technology discuss how governments operate and how policies are made. The first summit, held in 2013, was attended by former US President Barack Obama, former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, and other world leaders. Though a Roman artifact recreated in a modern Arab metropolis may seem incongruous, Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific author and End of Days scholar, saw a deeper meaning in it that is incredibly relevant today. Though Rome and the Arab Emirates appear in different parts of the world and at different points in history, Rabbi Winston sees them as connected ideologically and spiritually. “Tradition tells of four exiles, the last being the Roman exile. Israel is being assailed by the Arabs but nowhere do we hear of a fifth, Arab or Ishmael exile,” explained Rabbi Winston. “This Roman arch in Dubai symbolically ties them both together: Ishmael, the Arabs, and Edom, which was epitomized by Rome.” The original arch in Palmyra, built by Roman Emperor Septimius Severus, stood in front of a preexisting temple that was used by the Mesopotamians to worship the pagan god Bel, mentioned often in the Bible as Ba’al. For he built again the high places which Chizkiyahu his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal. II Kings 21:3 “Just like the Romans, the Arabs are trying to control the world, and succeeding,” said Rabbi Winston. “Even though it is the Arabs against the Jews, it is really the Arabs continuing the mission of Edom to conquer the world. This connection between Dubai and Rome is showing that Edom never ended. It just put on a different mask.” The first century Jewish sage Jonathan ben Uzziel wrote about how this Biblical alliance between Ishmael and Esau and would reappear at the End of Days. Clear evidence of the spiritual connection between these two seemingly disparate worlds can be found in the growing political cooperation between Rome and the Muslim/Arab world. The bond has manifested in the strengthening of ties between the Vatican and the Palestinian Authority, as well as Pope Francis’ meeting with the President of Iran. Though Edom and the desire to rule the world is personified by Rome, Rabbi Winston explained that the archetype has Biblical roots. “The push for one world government goes back to the Tower of Babel, trying to put the power in the hands of the wealthy, the powerful, and the arrogant,” he said. And they said: ‘Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’ Genesis 11:4 “The Arab desire to rule the world is part of their religion and that is also very Roman,” continued Rabbi Winston. “World rule is also the religion of the rich and powerful.” The motive behind world rule can sound altruistic, but Rabbi Winston noted a critical distinction. “The desire to fix the world and to make it a better place resembles a Messianic movement,” the rabbi said. “But unless it is based in God, it is twisted and turns destructive because it is based on ego. It has always attracted secular academia because it aggrandizes Human Intellect over the One who rules over us all.” The reproduction appeared for the first time in London on April 19 during the UNESCO Heritage Week, which coincided disturbingly with Beltane, a major pagan festival for worshiping Ba’al. The arch appeared again in New York City’s City Hall Park in September.

Heads Will Roll: Jason Chaffetz Requests Official DOJ Investigation Into Illegal Leaks Of Flynn-Russia Calls To The Press

by ZeroPointNow Feb 16, 2017 5:18 AM

Heads are about to roll, can you feel it? House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz along with Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) have submitted a letter to the Justice Department's inspector general, Michael Horowitz, requesting a formal investigation into both the surveillance and subsequent leaks of classified communications "of or regarding" former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn - citing the highly inappropriate release of information. Generally, collection activities by intelligence agencies are classified, as are the products that result from those activities. This is to ensure the continued integrity of the sources and methods used. Therefore, it seems probable that the fact that an intelligence agency monitored the call, if it did, as well as any recording of the call, would also be classified. Chaffetz and Goodlatte's letter cite "serious concerns" about mishandling of classified information, stating the release of which would, by definition, "have grave effects on national security." In a discussion with Fox's First 100 Days, Chaffetz also made clear that he's concerned about both the Flynn leaks and President Trump's conduct, following a letter the congressman to the White House over Trump's public discussion at Mar-a-Lago with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe regarding North Korea's recent missile launch. While it's perhaps to be expected that our intelligence agencies might monitor an incoming administration's communications, using those obviously classified conversations as a weapon for the purposes of propaganda designed to undermine a sitting US President is absolutely beyond the pale. "How does that information end up at the news media? The President has made some very serious allegations in his description in the movement of this information. See text of the Chaffetz / Goodlatte letter here (with Fox interview below):

Media Continues Bashing Trump, But New Poll Shows Americans Think He’s Exactly What We Need

Rusty Featured Contributor February 14, 2017

While the mainstream media continues to viciously attack President Trump and his administration, Americans continue to believe he is the answer to our nation’s biggest problems. A new Gallup poll indicates that the American people view Trump as a strong leader, and a man who keeps his promises. And why wouldn’t they? In the few weeks he’s served in the White House, President Trump has issued orders sending ISIS terrorists to Gitmo, shifted counterterrorism efforts to focus on radical Islam, laid the foundation for building the wall, and tried to institute a temporary travel ban for refugees coming from terrorist hotbeds. All of which were campaign promises kept. What’s more shocking is this – after the media fawned over Barack Obama for 8 years as the hope and change President, Americans believe the real agent of change in Washington is, in fact, President Trump. Via TheBlaze: During the elections, polls were not kind to now President Donald Trump, but they certainly seem to be now. A new Gallup poll released today shows that most Americans view Trump as a strong leader, but even more of them believe he’s a President who keeps his promises. According those polled, 62 percent believe that Trump “keeps his promises.” Moreover, 59 percent believe he “is a strong and decisive leader.” Most surprisingly, over half of Americans believe Trump “can bring about the changes this country needs” at 53 percent. During his RNC acceptance speech, candidate Trump acknowledged the need for change – from Obama, from Clinton, from Democrat policies in general. “The problems we face now – poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad – will last only as long as we continue relying on the same politicians who created them,” he said. “A change in leadership is required to change these outcomes.” Now 53% – a clear majority – still, after all the negativity coming from the hysterical media, believe Trump “can bring about the changes this country needs.” Gallup writes, “His series of executive orders and Cabinet appointments show a president who is decisive and trying to bring about change, also qualities that a majority of Americans (59% and 53%, respectively) say apply to him.” Compared to the same poll conducted in September, that 53% rate constitutes a 13% jump for Americans in general. Even 11% more Democrats believe he can bring about change than they did in September. We’d like to see the media report accurately on these views held by the American people, but we wouldn’t bet on it happening.

Hundreds of thousands of dead fish cover beaches in the Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica

By Strange Sounds - Feb 15, 2017

Alarmed officials are investigating the cause of the unexplained and widespread fish mass die-off in Piedra Santa beach, La Mona, Ensenada and Los Moragas. This fish kill isn’t localized to one single place. No, here we have a giant mass die-off that stretches over several kilometers of beaches around the Gulf of Nicoya. It’s not a local problem. It’s a global problem! Thousands of fish were found dead on several beaches in the Gulf of Nicoya on Wednesday, but no apparent cause is known at this time. All the fish are the same species (Galician sardine). At the moment, no other affected animals have been found. Officials have no detail on how many beaches are being affected by this phenomenon, but it is known that dead fish covered Piedra Santa beach, La Mona, Ensenada, Manzanillo and the Moragas estuary. Dead fish carcasses are now starting to smell really bad. Biologists from the National Coast Guard Service are traveling to the Caldera and Níspero beach in emergency to determine the cause of the death. This occurs after three other fish die-offs were reported in Chile, Colombia and New Zealand in the last 4 days or so.

US and Japan demand UN action after North Korea reveals pictures of new nuclear-capable missile that will be impossible for Western satellites to spot before it's fired

New type of rockets can be launched at short notice without much preparation

In addition, solid fuel engines also boost the power and range of ballistic rockets

They are also more difficult to track by satellite because they have fewer support vehicles in their entourage, expert warns

UN strongly condemned its launch describing it as a 'further troubling violation'

Missile flew about 310 miles before falling into the sea Sunday

Launch was seen as a test of response from President Trump

By Sarah Dean For Mailonline and Afp

The United States and Japan have demanded UN action after North Korea boasted about the launch of its latest ballistic missile, which is almost impossible for Western satellites to spot before it's fired. Kim Jong Un's men successfully launched a new type of medium-to long-range ballistic missile on Sunday, the first test of U.S. President Donald Trump's vow to get tough on the isolated regime. The missile test came as Mr Trump hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Mr Abe condemned the launch as 'absolutely intolerable', and Mr Trump said Washington would stand behind Japan, 'its great ally, 100 per cent'. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday strongly condemned the launch, describing it as a 'further troubling violation' of UN resolutions. The North's state-run KCNA news agency said leader Kim Jong Un supervised the test of the Pukguksong-2, a new type of strategic weapon that can launch faster, is easier to hide from satellites and is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. In addition to launching more quickly, the solid fuel engines on the new missile also boost the power and range of ballistic rockets. 'Solid-motor engines mean that the fuel is pre-stored and the missile can be launched quickly. For example, rolled out of a cave, tunnel, or bridge,' said Melissa Hanham, a senior research associate at the U.S.-based Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California. 'They are also more difficult to track by satellite because they have fewer support vehicles in their entourage.' KCNA said the missile was fired at a high angle in consideration of the safety of neighbouring countries. A South Korean military source said on Sunday the missile reached an altitude of 550 km (340 miles). It flew about 500 km towards Japan, landing off the east coast of the Korean peninsula. The missile was propelled by a solid fuel engine and was an upgraded, extended-range version of its submarine-launched ballistic missile that was tested successfully last August, according to KCNA. South Korea's military said on Monday the missile had been launched using a 'cold-eject' system, whereby it is initially lifted by compressed gas before flying under the power of its rocket, a system used for submarine-launched missiles. North Korea's pursuit of large solid-fuelled missiles was 'a very concerning development', said Jonathan McDowell of the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. 'This new rocket is the type that we should be much more worried about. Solid fuel rockets can be launched at short notice without much preparation,' he said in an email. 'Large solid fuel motors are difficult to make work correctly so this is indeed a significant advance by North Korea,' McDowell said. The test also verified a 'feature of evading interception' and 'the mobility and operation of the new type missile launching truck', KCNA reported. The North's Rodong Sinmun newspaper showed pictures of a missile fired from a mobile launch vehicle resembling a tank, with a flame appearing only after it had risen clear of the vehicle. The United States, Japan and South Korea requested urgent U.N. Security Council consultations on the test, with a meeting taking place on Monday afternoon, an official in the U.S. mission to the United Nations said. 'The DPRK leadership must return to full compliance with its international obligations and to the path of denuclearization,' said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a statement. The UN Security Council will meet behind closed doors later Monday to discuss the missile test, the first carried out by Pyongyang since US President Donald Trump took office. Guterres appealed 'to the international community to continue to address this situation in a united manner,' in an apparent reference to the United States and China, Pyongyang's ally. Japan said on Monday further sanctions against Pyongyang could be discussed at the United Nations, and called on China to take a 'constructive' role in responding to the latest launch. China is North Korea's main ally and trading partner but is irritated by Pyongyang's repeated provocations, although it resists calls from the United States and others that it should be doing more to rein in its neighbour. 'We have asked China via various levels to take constructive actions as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council and we will continue to work on it. At the same time, Japan will continue to urge North Korea to exercise self-restraint from provocative actions and comply with U.N. resolutions,' Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Monday. China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang on Monday said it opposed the launch. However, Beijing counters that its influence is overstated and suggests that Washington's refusal to talk directly to North Korea is impeding progress toward a solution. 'The root cause of the (North Korean) nuclear missile issue is its differences with the U.S. and South Korea,' Geng told reporters at a regular briefing. Geng said China, a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, has been 'completely and comprehensively' implementing Security Council resolutions on the nuclear issue. He said Beijing 'has been striving for a settlement of the Korean Peninsula issue by proactively engaging in mediation and promoting peace talks.' Although generally dismissive of sanctions, Beijing has signed on to successive rounds under the U.N. Security Council, and last month banned more items from being exported to North Korea, including plutonium and dual-use technologies that could aid its nuclear program. Geng urged all sides to refrain from provocative action and said China would continue participating in Security Council discussions in a constructive and responsible way. North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests, including two last year, although its claims to be able to miniaturise a nuclear weapon to be mounted on a missile have never been verified independently. Before Sunday, the North's two most recent missile tests had taken place in October. Both were of intermediate-range Musudan missiles and both failed, according to U.S. and South Korean officials. A U.S. official said at the weekend the Trump administration had been expecting a North Korean 'provocation' soon after taking office. The latest test came a day after Trump held a summit meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and also followed Trump's phone call last week with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The missile is launched near the western city of Kusong and flies east about 500 kilometres (310 miles) before falling into the Sea of Japan (East Sea) Abe described the test as 'absolutely intolerable'. In brief comments standing beside Abe in Palm Beach, Florida, Trump said: 'I just want everybody to understand, and fully know, that the United States of America is behind Japan, our great ally, 100 percent.' The U.S. stance towards North Korea is likely to become tougher than before, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Monday. 'I believe that the stance of the United States towards North Korea will become much tougher, that is clear,' Abe said on a NHK public broadcasting news programme, after returning from meetings with Trump in the United States. Trump said the United States remained committed to Japan's security and that it was behind Japan '100 percent' in the aftermath of the missile launch, which occurred as Abe was wrapping up his visit. Trump and his aides are likely to weigh a series of possible responses, including new U.S. sanctions to tighten financial controls, an increase in naval and air assets in and around the Korean peninsula, and accelerated installation of new missile defence systems in South Korea, the administration official said. However, the official said that, given that the missile was believed not to have been an ICBM and that Pyongyang had not carried out a new nuclear explosion, any response would seek to avoid ratcheting up tensions. Kim said in his New Year speech the North was close to test-launching an ICBM and state media have said such a launch could come at any time.

Pukguksong-2 translates as north star or Polaris, the same name as the first U.S. submarine-launched missile. It uses a large solid-fuel engine, which consist of a pre-mixed fuel and oxidizer in solid form which is then ignited. The system is less efficient than the liquid-fuel rockets used in previous generations of North Korean missiles, but it is more simple and less costly. It is also more difficult to engineer and launch successfully, as once the ignition process begins it cannot be altered or turned off, which is why world powers are concerned by North Korea's recent success. Previous generations of liquid-fuel rockets consist of a fuel and oxygen or, other oxidizer, in liquid state. The fuel flow to the engine can be controlled and the amount of thrust produced can be regulated or turned on and off as needed. 'Large solid fuel motors are difficult to make work correctly so this is indeed a significant advance by North Korea,' McDowell said.

In the first, known as a 'hot launch', the missile is expelled from its launch cell by igniting its rocket propulsion system immediately. The second, as used by the Pukguksong-2, is a 'cold launch', which are generally used in naval settings. In this type of system, the missile is expelled from its cell by gas produced by a generator. The benefit of this system is it avoids the need for additional systems designed to dispose of the heat and exhaust fumes generated by the missile's launch. It also afford the missile a slightly longer range, as less fuel is used in the initial launch process, as well as quicker launching and reloading times. Disadvantages may include problems with accuracy in strong winds, as the initial gas expulsion phase of the launch may be affected. China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang on Monday said it opposed the launch.
