Prince Charles Fingers The Jew: Zionism To Blame For Middle East Crisis Reader 11/13/2017 (Mon) 15:27:12 Id: ba84dc [Preview] No. 3078 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Prince Charles has blamed Zionism for the woes of the Middle East, claiming the Arab-Israeli conflict can be traced back to the creation of Israel.

In a newly released letter dating back to 1986, Prince Charles wrote that he blamed the “influx of foreign, European Jews” for aggravating the Arab-Israeli conflict, voicing hope that an American president would one day have the “courage to stand up to the Jewish lobby”.

Rt.com reports: “I now appreciate that Arabs and Jews were all a Semitic people originally,” the then 38-year-old Prince of Wales wrote in his letter, adding, that “it is the influx of foreign, European Jews (especially from Poland, they say) which has helped to cause great problems” in the Middle East. “I know there are so many complex issues, but how can there ever be an end to terrorism unless the causes are eliminated?” he questioned.

“Surely some US president has to have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby in the US? I must be naive, I suppose!” he concludes. The Editor of the Jewish Chronicle, Stephen Pollard, described Charles’ comments “both shocking and entirely predictable.”

A Clarence House spokesperson said the thoughts, expressed in the 1986 letter, were actually “not The Prince’s own views.”

“The letter clearly states these were not the Prince’s own thinking on Arab-Israeli affairs, but represented the opinions of some of those he met during his visit which he was keen to interrogate,” the statement said.

It added that Prince Charles was simply “sharing the arguments in private correspondence,” in a bid “to improve his understanding of what he has always recognized is a deeply complex issue.”

The real issue is that actual royalty thinks this bears repeating. "the Arab-Israeli conflict that can be traced back to the creation of Israel" doesn't matter, muzzies would be overflowing regardless and that's the real problem. Let the jews play get off my lawn all they want, if a jew is located in Isreal that's one of the least offensive jew there is.

True, the problem is Israel's Zionist government wants to keep destabilizing other Mid-Eastern governments to grab up more land to occupy and more resources to consume. Israelis are never satisfied with what they already have, they always want more. And why the United States acts like such a hound-dog for Israel baffles me.

We should just say "NO!" to them once and for all, and if they want to occupy more territory then let them do it by themselves and leave us out of the whole mess.

They can't comprehend anything at this point, just a bunch of brainwashed Soros-driven bots running around chanting how there are 50+ genders and how Islam is all loving (even though they behead gays, which is odd when the same liberals seem to support gay rights).

They don't make sense and at this point I ignore 99% of their rhetoric unless its an actual threat against me or my lifestyle. Then I'll take them seriously and take action to mitigate that threat ASAP.

Bangladesh should take them in since they're both Muslims. Burma doesn't want Muslims because some of them have already turned into jihadists or revolutionaries and have pushed for Sharia law in a predominately Buddhist state. I fully understand why Burma wants them gone.



More Governmental Incompetence: US Army Decides Its A Good Idea To Recruit Bipolars, Drug Addicts Reader 11/13/2017 (Mon) 13:06:46 Id: 745266 [Preview] No. 3069 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: https://archive.fo/ylFdm

People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year's goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.

Expanding the waivers for mental health is possible in part because the Army now has access to more medical information about each potential recruit, Lt. Col. Randy Taylor, an Army spokesman, said in a statement. The Army issued the ban on waivers in 2009 amid an epidemic of suicides among troops.

“The decision was primarily due to the increased availability of medical records and other data which is now more readily available,” Taylor's statement to USA TODAY said. “These records allow Army officials to better document applicant medical histories.”

But accepting recruits with those mental health conditions in their past carries risks, according to Elspeth Ritchie, a psychiatrist who retired from the Army as a colonel in 2010 and is an expert on waivers for military service. People with a history of mental health problems are more likely to have those issues resurface than those who do not, she said.

“It is a red flag,” she said. “The question is, how much of a red flag is it?”

Accepting recruits with poor qualifications can cause problems. In 2006, for example, an Iraqi girl was raped and her family killed by U.S. soldiers, one of whom required waivers for minor criminal activity and poor educational background to join the Army.

True.

In a way I guess this could be 'good news' depending the way individuals view it. What this might mean is (for the most part) only the scum of society will be fighting our future wars for special interests while the smart, healthy and logical American citizens stay far away from all this non-sense and live their own lives. This would result in more lost battles for the corrupt Deep State / Zionist think tanks and the Americans who end up dying in these wars would end up dying from drug overdoses or suicidal tendencies anyway so they're disposable either way you look at it - on the streets of America or on the streets of Iraq.

Many possibilities and conclusions can be drawn from the Saudi purge. Was this part of the plan all along, to end the US petrodollar and completely flip industry and economic growth East? Or is the purge a legit corruption smackdown, looks like it and if so, who helped initiate the coup against the royal elites and tycoons in Saudi Arabia? We know this impacts relations with the US and Israeli deep state elitists too. Could this purge have the intention to disrupt the 'New World Order' or is it only mending it further into place?

World’s Largest Corporations End Contributions To Clinton Foundation Reader 11/13/2017 (Mon) 15:06:29 Id: 0d35e7 [Preview] No. 3077 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A new report by the International Business Times suggests the Clinton Foundation is under severe financial strain after the world’s largest corporations have ended all contributions to the corrupt organization.

Major corporations that have halted all donations to the Clinton Foundation since President Trump won the White House include “Boeing, Chevron, Daimler Trucks North America, Dell, Duke Energy, General Electric, Humana, Lockheed Martin and UPS.”

From the IB Times: https://archive.fo/n1J5X

"Most of the companies that have previously donated to the Clinton Foundation didn’t contribute in the second quarter of 2017, according to the organization’s website, although some, including Acxiom Corporation, BTIG LLC, Google and Starkey Hearing Technologies, have. Cities, countries, foundations and other nonprofits also donate to the foundation, and some contributed in 2017.

It’s impossible to know precisely what’s happened to Clinton Foundation fundraising in the year since Secretary Clinton lost. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the foundation submits financial information to the Internal Revenue Service once per year, and information on both 2016 and 2017 is not yet publicly available. But International Business Times contacted nearly 50 major corporations that had previously donated to the foundation, asking if they had made new contributions after the 2016 presidential campaign. Thirty of them did not respond or declined to comment on the questions. Of the 18 that did, all said they had not made new donations."

Reports of corporations turning their back on the foundation come amid a report largely ignored by the mainstream media, where hedge fund manager and self-described Wall Street whistleblower, Charles Ortel, alleges the Clinton Foundation purposely hid payments attached to the now infamous ‘Russia-Uranium One’ deal.

Jerome Corsi reports:

To stress the gravity of the Clinton Foundation’s Russian Uranium One scandal, Ortel told Infowars.comthat he believes Clinton Foundation financial reports are criminally fraudulent in failing to report payments received in relation to the Russian Uranium One Scandal.

[…]Take 2009 results , for example, completed during 2010,” Ortel argued. “You will not find combining results for the Clinton Foundation, by “Initiative” on the Clinton Foundation website as these are purposefully omitted. But you will find these key results on versions of the required audit that are obtained here in New York (punch in EIN: 31-1580204) and look at the 2009 filing.” […]“These show total contributions (normally these are from the general public) of $82.9 million and total grants (normally these are from governments and from foundations) of $162.9 million,” he continued. “Focus on the column “CHAI” (Clinton Health Access Initiative) that shows contributions of $15.5 million of the combined total) and $159.7 in grants of the total). Clearly “CHAI” existed during 2009 as a material portion of the Clinton Foundation.”

Re-education programs? Uhhhhh, that doesn't necessarily sound like something good anon.

With all due respect, people need jobs. People need to make a living, they need income. Without it people remain poor and desperate. That's what socialists never seem to understand. Welfare, social services, medicaid, etc. that's all fine and dandy. But who pays for it? TAXPAYERS. WORKERS. If you don't have jobs available you have less tax revenue to support those services. Stop trying to bite the hands that feed you.

Here's another thing. Computer programming? Nursing? SHIT JOBS. I'd much rather be a miner than a fucking nurse or (outsourced or underpaid) computer programmer.

I've heard the stories behind some of those preppy jobs and dude, they SUCK! Management treats employees like disposable dog shit, sandniggers are replacing more than half the American workforces and lowering wages, dealing with bureaucracy is a fucking nightmare!

So in all due respect, I'd rather be treated respectfully as a hard worker in a dirty mine than be treated like dog shit in deeply federalized / highly regulated institutions.

But what if automated work? Part of the reason there are so fewer jobs is due to the immense automation of manual labor and customer service. There are mines in Australia that are operated almost entirely using machines with artificial intelligence and they're not even considered to be cutting edge. The only workers they have are a few highly trained specialists and management. Increasingly, consumers order food on their phones or using the self checkouts and you can buy anything online. What's the government going to do? Make automation illegal, contrary to free enterprise, and impossible to legislate in corporate states? Times are changing; you got to think outside the box.

Incorrect. The reason behind the lack of good jobs in America stems from the mid 1980s. Its called "outsourcing." American industries thought it was a "good idea" to send their manufacturing plants and offices and warehouses offshore and hire cheap foreign slave labor. They wanted cheap labor.

This was years before automation became a problem, which started becoming a problem in the late 90s to early 2000s. It is certainly another problem and I'll note the reason why below.

>Increasingly, consumers order food on their phones or using the self checkouts and you can buy anything online.

They are only contributing to their own demise and are too stupid to even realize it. And here's one thing you might not comprehend: consumption mandates the use of exchange - currency - which is typically supplied through one's income or salary for their work. The less workers there are, the less income, the less income the less taxes going toward welfare, the less income the less use of exchange, the less use of exchange the less people consume products. The less products consumed, the worse the economy gets overtime.

So because of outsourcing and insolvent welfare programs we have cheap foreign mass produced products and wealth re-distribution from hard working tax payers to lazy leaches. What happens when you start having a lack of workers? How did that Keynesian economic experiment work out for all the other socialist countries over the years? Not very well at all! I expect the same here. Be prepared. Incompetence is NEVER immune from consequence.

>What's the government going to do?

They've already screwed this up by allowing it to happen in the first place! Too late! They've been preparing their militarized drills to disarm and kill the (soon to be) disgruntled & bankrupted American citizens for the last 10+ years now so expect something like that to enfold. Civil war / economic collapse.



More Governmental Incompetence: Security Breaches and Spilled Secrets Leaves the NSA Baffled Reader 11/13/2017 (Mon) 13:05:51 Id: fe2388 [Preview] No. 3068 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A serial leak of the agency’s cyberweapons has damaged morale, slowed intelligence operations and resulted in hacking attacks on businesses and civilians worldwide.

Jake Williams awoke last April in an Orlando, Fla., hotel where he was leading a training session. Checking Twitter, Mr. Williams, a cybersecurity expert, was dismayed to discover that he had been thrust into the middle of one of the worst security debacles ever to befall American intelligence.

Mr. Williams had written on his company blog about the Shadow Brokers, a mysterious group that had somehow obtained many of the hacking tools the United States used to spy on other countries. Now the group had replied in an angry screed on Twitter. It identified him — correctly — as a former member of the National Security Agency’s hacking group, Tailored Access Operations, or T.A.O., a job he had not publicly disclosed. Then the Shadow Brokers astonished him by dropping technical details that made clear they knew about highly classified hacking operations that he had conducted.

America’s largest and most secretive intelligence agency had been deeply infiltrated.

“They had operational insight that even most of my fellow operators at T.A.O. did not have,” said Mr. Williams, now with Rendition Infosec, a cybersecurity firm he founded. “I felt like I’d been kicked in the gut. Whoever wrote this either was a well-placed insider or had stolen a lot of operational data.”

The jolt to Mr. Williams from the Shadow Brokers’ riposte was part of a much broader earthquake that has shaken the N.S.A. to its core. Current and former agency officials say the Shadow Brokers disclosures, which began in August 2016, have been catastrophic for the N.S.A., calling into question its ability to protect potent cyberweapons and its very value to national security. The agency regarded as the world’s leader in breaking into adversaries’ computer networks failed to protect its own.

“These leaks have been incredibly damaging to our intelligence and cyber capabilities,” said Leon E. Panetta, the former defense secretary and director of the Central Intelligence Agency. “The fundamental purpose of intelligence is to be able to effectively penetrate our adversaries in order to gather vital intelligence. By its very nature, that only works if secrecy is maintained and our codes are protected.”

With a leak of intelligence methods like the N.S.A. tools, Mr. Panetta said, “Every time it happens, you essentially have to start over.”

Fifteen months into a wide-ranging investigation by the agency’s counterintelligence arm, known as Q Group, and the F.B.I., officials still do not know whether the N.S.A. is the victim of a brilliantly executed hack, with Russia as the most likely perpetrator, an insider’s leak, or both. Three employees have been arrested since 2015 for taking classified files, but there is fear that one or more leakers may still be in place. And there is broad agreement that the damage from the Shadow Brokers already far exceeds the harm to American intelligence done by Edward J. Snowden, the former N.S.A. contractor who fled with four laptops of classified material in 2013.

Nationalist March For Poland’s Independence Day Draws 60,000 Reader 11/13/2017 (Mon) 05:08:14 Id: 51362a [Preview] No. 3065 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Thousands of far-right nationalists marched through Warsaw today, marring the country's Independence Day celebrations.

The march organized by far-right groups was one of a number of marches organized in the Polish capital, which was celebrating Poland's rebirth as an independent nation 99 years ago after it was wiped off the map for 123 years.

Today's Independence Day march was the largest in recent years, overshadowing other state and patriotic events.

The far-rights presence at the event was visible for all to see, with some holding up patriotic banners and chanting "death to communism!" One banner read 'White Europe of brotherly nations'.

Some marched under a banner which read 'We Want God', words from an old Polish song which Donald Trump quoted during his visit to the country earlier this year. Others spoke about standing up to radical leftists and defending Christianity.

Vast swathes of the crowd marched with the red-and-white flag while others let off red flares and firecrackers during their march.

Authorities also had to ensure that Soros-run AntiFA terrorists were kept away from patriotic demonstrators over fears their could be violent outbreaks.

Deliberate Destabilization: Globalist Bureaucrats In Conquered Paris France Shut Down of Christmas Markets Reader 11/13/2017 (Mon) 03:31:02 Id: 1fb6fa [Preview] No. 3064 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Champs-Élysées Christmas market in Paris has been cancelled by City Hall councillors. It is considered the city’s main Christmas market and welcomes 15 million visitors every year.

According to a spokesperson of the City Hall, the French capital “wants to focus on offering visitors and Parisians more attractive and innovative events that will enhance the Champs-Élysées in a cultural and aesthetic dimension in keeping with this exceptional site”.

Since 2008 this market in Paris has been organised by Marcel Campion but due to a long-term dispute the contract was terminated this year.

According to Jean-François Martins, Deputy Mayor in charge of tourism at City Hall, the “market wasn’t good enough for Paris.”

But Mr. Champion denies that the market sells poor quality goods: “We have a six-year contract with the city which is being called into question after only two years”.

Isn’t it strange that a city that organises special Ramadan parties every year can’t organise a relatively simple Christmas market? Or is there something else going on?

Should the words of cultural and aesthetic dimensions actually be interpreted as: the market has to be more modern, multi-cultural and cosmopolitan, codewords for less Christian?

In a city with almost daily Muslim street prayers and a yearly Ramadan party it wouldn’t be surprising to anyone.

DHS Plans To Release Chemical Weapons For 'Drill' In Midwest Reader 11/13/2017 (Mon) 02:49:20 Id: a8b754 [Preview] No. 3063 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Department of Homeland Security is planning to launch a chemical weapons test near the border between Kansas and Oklahoma.

Department officials plan to execute a “low level outdoor release chemical and biological simulant materials” at the old Chilocco Indian School in Newkirk in January and again in June.

DHS goons say the test is designed to test how 'protected' people are by staying indoors in the event of a biological attack.

Healthnutnews.com reports: Congressman Ron Estes, R-Kansas, announced Thursday night that he has “numerous questions” about chemical and biological tests the Department of Homeland Security wants to conduct just across the state line in Oklahoma.

Homeland Security officials plan to execute a “low level outdoor release” of inert chemical and biological simulant materials at the old Chilocco Indian School campus north of Newkirk, Okla., after the first of the year and again next summer.

The campus is near the Kansas/Oklahoma border, about 6 miles south of Arkansas City and about 55 miles southeast of Wichita. Wind typically blows out of the south, which could carry airborne particles into Kansas where it could affect, humans, nature, and wildlife.

Part of the test is to determine how much protection people would receive from being inside a house or an apartment if biological agents are used in a terrorist attack, according to a statement on the Homeland Security web site.

The tests are set for next year in January and February, when humidity is low, and again in June and July, when humidity is high.

The environmental assessment of the proposed chemical tests states “low” concentrations of particles will be released at two buildings on the now-abandoned Chilocco campus. The assessment says that the test will have no adverse impact on human health or the environment.
