Zimbabwe Army Has Dictator Mugabe and His Wife in Custody, Controls Capital Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 16:43:22 Id: 222e70 [Preview] No. 3149 del
Zimbabwe Army Has Dictator Mugabe and His Wife in Custody, Controls Capital

Zimbabwe’s army said Wednesday it has President Robert Mugabe and his wife in custody and is securing government offices and patrolling the capital’s streets following a night of unrest that included a military takeover of the state broadcaster.

The night’s action triggered speculation of a coup, but the military’s supporters praised it as a “bloodless correction.”

For the first time, this southern African nation is seeing the military oppose Mugabe, the world’s oldest head of state and one of the longest-serving authoritarian rulers. Mugabe has been in power since Zimbabwe’s independence from white minority rule in 1980.

Armed soldiers in armoured personnel carriers stationed themselves at key points in Harare, while Zimbabweans formed long lines at banks in order to draw the limited cash available, a routine chore in the country’s ongoing financial crisis. People looked at their phones to read about the army takeover and others went to work or to shops.

In an address to the nation after taking control of the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, Major General Sibusiso Moyo said early Wednesday the military is targeting “criminals” around Mugabe, and sought to reassure the country that order will be restored.

It was not clear where Mugabe, 93, and his wife were Wednesday but it seems they are in the custody of the military. “Their security is guaranteed,” Moyo said.

“We wish to make it abundantly clear that this is not a military takeover,” he said. “We are only targeting criminals around (Mugabe) who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice.”

Moyo added “as soon as we have accomplished our mission, we expect that the situation will return to normalcy.” The army spokesman called on churches to pray for the nation. He urged other security forces to “cooperate for the good of our country,” warning that “any provocation will be met with an appropriate response.”

Not really gonna help them considering the country is barren now. Still, nice to see the commie fuck-wit taken out. Probably because he's in a position where he can't bring the country out of the hell its in without taking away the yachts these military leaders think they should have (yes, I know it's a land-locked country, niggers gonna nig). They're pretty much replacing him with someone who won't take away their shinies and then they'll replace the next guys ass because there are no more shinies to hand out.

But lets not be pessimistic. Here's to the devil we don't know! Maybe he can convince the world to "save" their black asses. Even if it's because the retard decided to try and seize the platinum mines.

Feeling The Pain? Half of American Colleges Will Be Bankrupt In 10 to 15 Years Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 16:39:08 Id: 95ff37 [Preview] No. 3181 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the United States, but Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen says that half are bound for bankruptcy in the next few decades.

Christensen is known for coining the theory of disruptive innovation in his 1997 book, "The Innovator's Dilemma." Since then, he has applied his theory of disruption to a wide range of industries, including education.

In his recent book, "The Innovative University," Christensen and co-author Henry Eyring analyze the future of traditional universities, and conclude that online education will become a more cost-effective way for students to receive an education, effectively undermining the business models of traditional institutions and running them out of business.

At the Innovation + Disruption Symposium in Higher Education in May, Christensen specifically predicted that "50 percent of the 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. will be bankrupt in 10 to 15 years."

More recently, he doubled down on his statements, telling 1,500 attendees at Salesforce.org's Higher Education Summit, "If you're asking whether the providers get disrupted within a decade — I might bet that it takes nine years rather than 10."

Christensen is not alone in thinking that online educational resources will cause traditional colleges and universities to close. The U.S. Department of Education and Moody's Investors Service project that in the coming years, closure rates of small colleges and universities will triple, and mergers will double.

Russia Squeezing US Out As Agricultural Superpower Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 17:41:35 Id: 47b364 [Preview] No. 3153 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The US is being pushed out of the grain market as Russia's bumper wheat harvest has dragged down prices to record lows. Russian agricultural exports are booming thanks to a weaker national currency and massive investment.

“We are pushing America aside in some markets, and we are satisfied with this,” said Russia’s Agriculture Minister Aleksandr Tkachev.

This year Russian farmers are expected to harvest the biggest crop in over a century. Russia will produce at least 83 million tons of wheat in the current growing season, according to estimates by The Wall Street Journal.

Lower prices and close proximity to large markets gives Russia an advantage, according to the General Director of the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies Dmitry Rylko.

“A relatively weak ruble is good for the Russian wheat market. We see either gradual or rapid growth for our exports,” the expert told RT.

However, the figure announced by the Russian government earlier this year is much more impressive. The Moscow-based grain consultant ProZerno estimates a harvest of over 130 million tons. It is 2.6 percent more than the previous record set in 1978 before the Soviet-Afghan War.

“Today our task is to set reasonable prices across the country. The grain crop of 130 million tons, there is more to come. It may reach up to 200 million tons. The main thing is to find new sales markets,” said Tkachev.

The US agricultural sector has faced lousy weather this season, meaning fewer acres of wheat were sowed in 2017 than ever before. US wheat output is expected to decline by a quarter compared to the previous season.

Unfavorable conditions along with Russia’s resurgence pushed wheat prices at the Chicago Board of Trade down almost 25 percent to $4.19 a bushel (about 27 kilograms) compared to July, when Russia began a record wheat harvest. The US Wheat Associates trade group announced the shutdown of its office in Egypt, the world’s biggest wheat importer.

Sure there may be some propaganda put out on RT, but propaganda is everywhere including in the US.

The issue is you have to keep an open mind and be aware of it, and just because something makes you feel uncomfortable doesn't mean its not true.

I think one thing that has to do with this is that Europe is banning GMO wheat... and lets face it, the US has a whole lot of GMO wheat. Russia banned GMOs, so Europe is buying a lot of wheat from Russia now instead of the US.

The US government may not like hearing about this. And US corporations may scoff at this. But that's just common sense.

Excellent point about the reality of GMO economics. In the US, consumers wanted GMO labeling. Monsanto spent millions to defeat labeling initiatives. Every time you tried to talk about it, the Monsanto shills would come out of the woodwork and bleat the same tired shit about how consumers were too dumb to know what they wanted. Now they can bleat that Russia and Europe are too dumb to know what they want while the US agricultural industry continues to bleed from its gaping Monsanto wound and as a stupid American that doesn't know what he wants, I choose to buy stuff that is voluntarily labeled with "GMO Free!"

I'm glad you see my point anon, I too reject GMO foods. Also note that its not just our agriculture industries fault either: they get kickbacks for accepting GMO... but if they don't accept GMOs, they end up under intense governmental scrutiny. So its like our own corrupt government is working with these big companies like Monsanto and Bayer, trying their best to undermine organic competition. They make it very hard for small businesses who sell organic foods, and turn around granting complete exemptions to these massive corrupt corporations and kickbacks at the taxpayers expense. In other words, we now have state-run industry within the US.



Donna Brazile To Testify In Seth Rich Murder Lawsuit Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 15:56:44 Id: a2eefe [Preview] No. 3177 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/2848 ; >>>/news/2874 ; >>>/news/2925 ; >>>/news/3013

Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile has been asked to testify in a lawsuit alleging that the DNC murdered whistleblower Seth Rich.

Lawyer Jack Burkman, who filed the suit on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters last month, confirmed that Brazile was added to the lawsuit in respond to the recent bombshells she dropped in her new book.

Gotnews.com reports: “She released her [book] excerpts without realizing they could open her up to civil liability,” Burkman explained to GotNews. Brazile’s book documents how the Clinton campaign effectively took control of the DNC before the 2016 primaries even started.

“The entire DNC process in 2016 was biased for Hillary Clinton,” Burkman declared.

Burkman believes Brazile was foolish to blow the whistle so candidly on the DNC’s past corruption, given the leadership role she held there while the fraud and favor-trading occurred. “That’s like saying there’s corruption in the home, and it’s my home,” Burkman said.

Burkman, however, insists Brazile’s focus on murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich – she dedicates the book to him, and describes how she began closing her blinds in fear of snipers after his death – is even more significant. “The bigger bombshell was Seth Rich,” Burkman argued. “You have revelations that are probably more shocking than the revelation of the Nixon tapes in 1974… What is she saying? Does she know that the DNC killed Seth? What on earth is going on?”

“This isn’t Alex Jones, me, or Sean Hannity saying this,” Burkman elaborated. “This is the former DNC Chairwoman.”

Burkman’s lawsuit demands the DNC release its supposedly “hacked” server for an objective forensic analysis. He says the DNC is desperately trying to ignore it and hoping it will go away. “It’s a sad state of affairs [at the DNC],” Burkman told GotNews. “There’s been a purge of the Bernie people.”

Globalist Puppet Macron Blames The Victims For The Deliberate Destabilization of France Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 15:00:08 Id: 0467ce [Preview] No. 3174 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
French President Emmanuel Macron has blamed France for the rise of Islamism - rather than the suicidal amnesty/open border policies - and claimed France was not good enough for these terrorists, as he outlined a series of 'social programmes' for the country’s Islamic-invaded neighbourhoods.

“Radicalisation has taken hold because the French Republic has resigned,” Macron said on Tuesday in the northern French city of Tourcoing, near Lille, as he outlined 15 'social policy' plans.

Focusing on the banlieues (low-income housing projects), which are home to large Muslim populations and were known for mass riots a decade ago, the French president said: “I will never confuse the few thousand radicalised and the millions of inhabitants of these neighbourhoods.”

Acknowledging that “in many of these troubled territories, radicalisation has taken hold”, he said that that fact should lead the nation to “question itself”.

Macron also unveiled his social plans whilst visiting the Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois on Monday. The suburb was in the headlines earlier in the year as being one of several neighbourhoods in the high-migrant populated French department of Seine-Saint-Denis that erupted into riots after the alleged assault of a young man by police officers.

France has seen dozens of Islamist terror attacks in the past three years, with many of the jihadis coming from or having connections with “no-go zones” like Seine-Saint-Denis, including the Belgian-born mastermind of the November 2015 Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud who was shot dead, along with two accomplices, whilst hiding in Saint-Denis.

Two years after the 2015 Paris attacks, where 130 people died and more than 350 were wounded at coordinated attacks at the national football stadium, the Bataclan concert hall, and at bars and restaurants across the city, some survivors and victims’ families snubbed President Macron at the memorial on Monday.

The globalist former banker axed the ministerial office for terror victims created by his predecessor, François Hollande, which was established to help survivors. Many of them accused Macron of failing to understand their trauma.

Michael Dias, 32, whose father, Manuel, 63, was killed after three suicide bombers detonated their devices outside the Stade de France, said: “President Macron has tried to ensure that the victims are forgotten by getting rid of the junior ministerial post that was dedicated to them and then reducing financial help for some categories of victims.”

So how would these things work if you were to release them randomly in a city? How do they track rogue entities down? Are they pre-programed to hunt down certain individuals? I would suspect if it came to this anyone in the know would ditch anything that had GPS tracking them (such as internet / cell phones). Or use spoofing (private VPN services) when communication is needed.

Any ways can we stop these things if they become real? My thought is a black curtain over all your windows, and then mounting some mesh wire over them. Or boarding up with plywood. That way they can't see you, and if they can't see faces and can't track GPS then they can't kill their targets right?

Of-course you'd have to have a lot of preps already in place to survive in a bug-in scenario such as food, water, guns/ammo, sanitation products, etc. The minute you leave your shelter those bots could swarm you. Would face masks work to curb the facial recognition if a target needed to escape somewhere else?

DEBT SLAVERY: Millions Of Millennials So Far Into Debt They Are Trading Sex For Their Next Debt Payment Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 14:24:55 Id: a9c7cf [Preview] No. 3145 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As the storm clouds of peak stupidity gather over the heads of the millennial generation who were conned by banks, government, and universities to take out excessive amounts of leverage in auto loans, credit cards, and student debt; millions have flocked to a new website seeking ‘Sugar Daddies’ and or even ‘Sugar Mommies’ to pay off their debt amid an economic environment where wage growth remains non-existent.

Today’s real simple get-out-of-debt option for the broke college/post college millennial is through an unconventional dating website called SeekingArrangement.com.

In 2016, the website identified some 2.5 million college students who turned to the site in an act of desperation to find a ‘Sugar Daddy’ or even a ‘Sugar Mommy’ in exchange of personal time for straight cash.

The website’s mission is to “delivers a new way for relationships to form and grow. Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies or Mommas both get what they want, when they want it”.

We find it hard to believe the intention of the website, when created by MIT graduate Brandon Wade in 2006, was to have 25% of the 10 million users — broke college millennials.

According to Business Insider,

A couple years ago, the site noticed an uptick in the number of members signing up with a university email address, Alexis Germany, a spokesperson for SeekingArrangement.com, told Business Insider.

It decided to launch a marketing campaign - dubbed Sugar Baby University - targeting indebted college students and young people who are interested in college but afraid of taking on massive loans.

In total, Americans owe more than $1.3 trillion in student loan debt to federal government agencies and or private lenders.

American Heart Association President Suffers Heart Attack Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 14:43:56 Id: c92e10 [Preview] No. 3146 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
American Heart Association President John Warner was away from the AHA’s Scientific Sessions with his family Monday after having a minor heart attack during the organization’s flagship scientific conference.

Warner, a practicing cardiologist and the CEO of UT Southwestern University Hospitals in Dallas, had the episode Monday morning. He was taken to a local hospital, where doctors inserted a stent to open a clogged artery.

He was recovering and visiting with his wife, son and daughter, all of whom attended the Scientific Sessions meeting in part to see him deliver his Presidential Address on Sunday afternoon. In that speech, the 52-year-old Warner talked about the effects of heart disease on his family. He mentioned how both his father and his father’s father had heart bypass surgery in their 60s. He also lost his maternal grandfather and a great grandfather to heart disease.

“Earlier in my talk, I told you there were no old men in my family. I know this is also true in far too many other families, not just in the U.S., but around the world. I believe the people in this room have the power – and even the duty – to change that. Together, we can make sure old men and old women are regulars at family reunions. … In other words, I look forward to a future where people have the exact opposite experience of my family, that children grow up surrounded by so many healthy, beloved, elderly relatives that they couldn’t imagine life any other way.”

Biggest contributer to heart disease, being obese and bad blood pressure is pork. Not beef - although the mass produced beef is pretty awful considering its full of GMOs, hormones, nitrites and other additives and preservatives. So anything that is in the major chain stores or fast food pickups be aware the meat is crap over there.

My parents always said to me "you are what you eat." That's actually true. And I've learned that from experience when I was younger. If you eat crap, your body is going to feel like crap. Just think of it like a car fueled by gas. If you put bad gas or the wrong type of gas in your tank your car won't run right and might end up breaking down. Same thing with the human body only with food.

If you routinely eat organic fruits, vegetables and grass-fed cow (beef with no GMOs, hormones or additives) then you won't be having serious health problems. If you eat junk food, fast foods and sugary snacks all day (that includes soda) then you'll get fat, grow pimples, have bad blood pressure, digestive problems and overall feel like shit. Might even get onset diabetes or cancer.

That's why I laugh a lot when so-called "experts" like this guy claim they know everything about health and they end up getting heart attacks or strokes. They think they can eat whatever they want without any consequences to their health. Just doesn't work that way.



WikiLeaks Told Trump Jr. Seth Rich Was DNC Leaker Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 16:14:28 Id: 6f1bb9 [Preview] No. 3148 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Julian Assange confirmed to Donald Trump Jr. that Seth Rich was the person who leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

In a direct message conversation between Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks – Assange points Trump to a website with a header that states: “My Name Was Seth Rich.”

“Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us,” WikiLeaks said in the conversation, directing Trump to visit “wlsearch.tk.”

Here is the entire chain of messages with @wikileaks (with my whopping 3 responses) which one of the congressional committees has chosen to selectively leak. How ironic! 1/3 pic.twitter.com/SiwTqWtykA

When you click on the side menu, the only option is a category titled “Seth Rich.” The link takes users to a page that reads, “You finally found me! I’m the source of the John Podesta/DNC Email hacks. I’ve been waiting so long for you to join me.”

The message makes it clear that the site has been edited since the conversation by referring to the exchange with Trump Jr. It is unclear if the site was hacked or if it was deliberately edited by someone associated with WikiLeaks.

“Thanks to Wikileaks and Trump Jr you’ll all soon know why Hillary Clinton and John Podesta had me killed,” the website reads. “As you can see I’m no Russian agent. I was just a proud DNC staffer who believed in the system until I found out Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against my candidate Bernie Sanders. That’s when I decided to take action and release these emails to Wikileaks.”

It's evidence the Trump campaign was willing to collude with Russia for dirt on Hillary. He even signed into the website wikileaks set up.

Funny how he refused to give the tax returns of his father to wikileaks when asked, and Trump remains the only president not to have gone transparent about his finances. Bet half of what he wants to hide are Russian contracts.

That would be collusion with Wikileaks, not Russia. But I'm sure they'll just paint that as a Russian asset and go from there. Then they would need to know if Trump knew about his son doing this and if he allowed that to continue to advantage his campaign.



Trump Picks Drug Industry Bandit For HHS Secretary Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 17:26:22 Id: 4293de [Preview] No. 3151 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Trump’s choice for Health and Human Services director is corporate predator Alex Azar - former president of Lilly USA LLC, Eli Lilly’s largest affiliate company.

In 2012, he headed Lilly’s US operations, was also involved in its international and government affairs work.

Earlier he was GW Bush’s deputy HHS secretary. In 1991, he earned a law degree from Yale, clerked for an appeals court justice, then Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia from 1992 - 1993.

During Ken Starr’s Whitewater investigation, he served in his Office of the Independent Counsel. He practiced law for Washington-based Wiley, Rein and Fielding until 2001, becoming a partner in the firm.

From 2001 - 2005, he was HHS general counsel - for two more years in the department as deputy HHS secretary in an administrative capacity - supervising operations for food and drugs, Medicare, Medicaid, medical research, public health, welfare, child and family services, disease prevention, Indian health, mental health services, emergency preparedness and response.

The FDA, Medicare and Medicaid Services, National Institutes of Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported to him.

He was a member of various administration agencies, including the White House Homeland Security Council and National Economic Council.

He serves on various corporate and other boards. On November 13, Trump nominated him to head HHS. He requires Senate confirmation - rubber-stamp given his background.

The agency is responsible for “(i)mproving the health, safety and well-being of Americans.” Yet Azar isn’t an MD, has layman medical knowledge only.

Its aim is shifting the burden of increasingly expensive healthcare onto the backs of millions of Americans unable to afford a fundamental human right - including gutting Medicaid over the next decade.

If enacted, America’s poor, elderly, disabled, and others with preexisting conditions will be grievously harmed most - a majority of US citizens.

Privatizing Medicare comes next, along with Social Security, transforming both vital programs into profit centers for Wall Street and other corporate predators.

Obamacare was written by corporate lobbyists, representing healthcare industry interests. The same goes for Trumpcare, eliminating the best of Obamacare, the worst of it on steroids.

Political analyst Stephen Wolf earlier tweeted: “Trumpcare doesn’t just repeal Obamacare. It repeals the last 52 years of advances in healthcare policy.”

Its a dagger plunged into the heart of Great Society programs, wanting them gutted to enrich wealthy Americans at the expense of most others.

The world’s richest country is on the brink of thumbing its nose at its most needy - more than ever since establishment of New Deal, Fair Deal and Great Society programs.

Today’s America isn’t the one I grew up in long ago, a better time. Opportunities afforded me no longer exist for most people.
