LAPD Sends Message To Hollywood Elites: We Are Investigating Your Rape of Women & Pedo Connections Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 19:20:34 Id: c9ecaa [Preview] No. 3283 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Los Angeles police are investigating almost two dozen cases of alleged criminal sexual misconduct connected to multiple people within the entertainment industry, a senior department official told NBC News.

The cases involve individuals who are known publicly as well as others who have not yet been identified, the official said Friday.

Allegations span from misdemeanor sexual battery to felony rape, and in many cases, there are multiple complaints lodged against the same individual, the official said. With calls from victims continuing to roll in, the number of investigations is expected to rise.

While police have not said publicly who is under investigation, law enforcement's response comes after a mounting list of Hollywood heavy hitters, including Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey, have been accused of some form of sexual misconduct.

Spacey's representatives said earlier this month that the actor "is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment."

Netflix cut ties with him and announced that it would be suspending production of the sixth season of the D.C.-based drama "House of Cards."

Police officials in New York have already said that a rape allegation against film producer Harvey Weinstein, who has seen more than 85 women accuse him of sexual misconduct, is "credible." They are collecting more evidence to build the case.

"We have an actual case here," NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told reporters earlier this month.

NBC News confirmed at least four sexual misconduct or sexual assault investigations connected to Weinstein are underway in the Los Angeles area as well. Two of them are being handled by the LAPD.

Agreed. Investigatory publicity does not a guarantee of prosecution make.

We're witnessing a cultural shift, and they're sending up plenty of warnings to drive such. Along with a minuscule fraction chosen to serve as the initial "pour encourager les auteurs" (ahem).

But, all this cultural send off is only a prelude to a decade long process of systemic rearrangement of VIP entertainment in Hollywood. Expect the hype to peter out after six months or so. About five years after, we should see one of them setup right in the act with mountains of immediate physical evidence, and no statue of limitations to hide behind. A last and final warning will that be.

Meanwhile, look to the scandal sheets to weigh in with helpful detour hints to the principals. Rumors of western celebrities vacationing in Thailand, Venezuela, perhaps even parts of Africa again, and so on.

The party never ends but does move on.



Zimbabwe Dictator Mugabe Arrested, Replaced By New Leader... Mugabe Vows Hunger Strike (Ironic After Starving His Own People) Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 17:14:37 Id: f17841 [Preview] No. 3276 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Deposed dictator Robert Mugabe broke down in tears and asked for his dead wife and son before meeting army chiefs on Sunday after being ousted as leader of Zimbabwe's Zanu-PF party, one of his aides has told MailOnline.

The frail 93-year-old has until noon local time on Monday to resign as president or impeachment proceedings will start, Zanu-PF said.

Mugabe was replaced by the vice president he previously sacked, Emmerson 'Crocodile' Mnangagwa, after all ten Zimbabwean provinces passed no-confidence motions against the dictator two days earlier.

The frail dictator has been staging a hunger strike over his confinement in house arrest and is refusing to take regular baths or speak, the aide added.

Mugabe is expected to address the nation this evening on live television, it has been announced.

An undercover FBI informant in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former AG Loretta Lynch, claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal – according to The Hill investigative journalist John Solomon and Circa‘s Sara Carter.

The informant, whose identity was revealed by Reuters as William D. Campbell, will testify before congress next week after the NDA which carried the threat of prison time was lifted. Campbell, originally misidentifed by Reuters as a lobbyist is actually a nuclear industry consultant who is currently battling cancer.

As previously reported, Campbell was deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry where he gathered extensive evidence of a racketeering scheme involving bribes and kickbacks.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. – The Hill

Campbell’s attorney, former Regan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing, previously told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”

Sarah Carter: He’s very sick and he’s been battling cancer and going chemo. He is in a battle for not only his life, but in a battle against what he perceives as people within the US government that don’t want this story to come out. But there’s so much information that he is willing to share with the public to set the record straight, and believe me we’re gonna get it out there. He is going to have his say. His voice will be heard.

Good! LAPD Arrest 39 Members Of Pedophile Ring, Rescue 13-Year-Old Victim Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 19:02:25 Id: 8760fd [Preview] No. 3282 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) arrested 39 people in connection to a pedophile ring on Friday, which led to the rescue of a 13-year-old girl.

The sweep was led by the Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Task Force, along with officers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Compton Station.

LA Times reports:

Two women were arrested on charges of soliciting undercover deputies for various sex acts, authorities said.

Sixteen additional females were arrested on suspicion of loitering for the purposes of prostitution, authorities said.

All of the women were offered services from the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking, and eight were identified as victims of human trafficking, authorities said.

Seventeen of those arrested were men who solicited undercover deputies for various sex acts, authorities said.

Good! 193 Illegal Alien Gang Members Arrested In MS-13 Crackdown Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 18:55:46 Id: 8d4185 [Preview] No. 3281 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Operation Raging Bull led to the arrest over 267 MS-13 gang members. 198 were in the United States with 193 of them being illegal aliens.

These arrests follow restrictions being lifted on the departments Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) by Jeff Sessions 2 weeks ago:

Now they will go after MS-13 with a renewed vigor and a sharpened focus. I am announcing that I have authorized them to use every lawful tool to investigate MS-13—not just our drug laws, but everything from RICO to our tax laws to our firearms laws. – Jeff Sessions, Attorney General

President Trump gave a speech in Long Island where he laid out his administrations plans to crack down on MS-13.

When asked about allegations of profiling by CBS News correspondent Margaret Brennan our ICE Director said:

People can make allegations all day long. I got 20,000 American patriots that work for ICE… These are men and women who do their job honorably. They get up every morning, strap a gun to their hip and leave the safety of their homes and their families to protect communities, to protect people they’ll never meet and they’ll never know. – Tom Homan, ICE Director

Homan said that he felt that his hands were tied under the Obama administration and that President Trump has enabled him to do his job. With President Trump he is allowed to arrest illegal aliens for crossing the border instead of waiting for them to commit a crime.

Homan credited the Trump administration for sending a new message to Central and South America, ‘Just because you get across the border, you are not home free’.

President Trump has set a new standard for America’s immigration policy and unlike Obama, illegal immigration isn’t a part of it.

Deutsche Bank Admits Fiat Currencies Are Failing, Cryptocurrencies May Replace Them Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 18:46:47 Id: 0342cd [Preview] No. 3187 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As the transition towards a blockchain based economy continues, the established financial powers are desperately trying to stay relevant. In an attempt to boost their credibility, analysts at Deutsche Bank are finally admitting that state-run fiat currencies are becoming obsolete. For years, blockchain entrepreneurs and other critics of central banking have been branded either conspiracy theorists or criminals. But recently, those controversial opinions about the inevitable changes coming to the world’s financial system are being echoed by mainstream pundits.

Deutsche Bank’s top strategist, Jim Reid, recently articulated a view on the economy that is shared by many but rarely talked about:

“Central banks and governments which have ‘dined out’ on the 35 year secular, structural decline in inflation are not able to prevent it rising as raising interest rates to suitable levels would risk serious economic contraction given the huge debt burden economies face. As such they are forced to prioritise low interest rates and nominal growth over inflation control which could herald in the beginning of the end of the global fiat currency system that begun with the abandonment of Bretton Woods back in 1971.”

The most surprising part came when he acknowledged the crucial role cryptocurrencies may play in the move away from unbacked paper money.

“Although the current speculative interest in cryptocurrencies is more to do with blockchain technology than a loss of faith in paper money, at some point there will likely be some median of exchange that becomes more universal and a competitor of paper money.”

The people’s trust in centralized control of currencies has never been directly challenged on this scale before. Competition in the emerging digital economy between different cryptocurrencies has introduced an alternative monetary system that empowers the individual and rewards based on merit, not special interests.

Any paradigm shift like this is guaranteed to have growing pains, but those who refuse to adapt will suffer most. Even though Bitcoin, Ethereum, and countless other blockchain applications may create tremendous value for years to come, the current volatility is still more than most can stomach. One of the first things new people in the space love and hate is the tendency toward massive swings in price that occur seemingly at random. Those who do decide to get involved need to make their primary focus self-education. Trying to stay objective without understanding the fundamentals behind issues like scalability, forks, different algorithms, and mining incentives will be nearly impossible. The reactions driven by ignorance, greed, and fear are all amplified in these new unregulated markets, meaning there is no safety net for amateurs. These wild fluctuations will eventually level out as broader adoption occurs and the ability for major players to manipulate price diminishes. Before building a large position in crypto, it may be more important to develop a strong understanding of the technology and history.

Probably ought to read 1988 rather than 1998, I remember you could buy much more back in the day but not quite that much as depicted in the photo.

Nonetheless, inflation does exist, its no conspiracy our dollar has been devalued over time.

relative devaluation: if the market increases in size (somebody builds a house) but the currency remains stable, that money would have to disapper from the bank account of the owner of the house, just for owning that house. The other option is to print more money, because somebody owning a house should not be a reason for me to have less money in circulation for groceries. Realistically the adjustment is not going to be 1:1, and an uptick will destroy the economy very fast, so the reasonable goal is to anticipate a downturn but try to soften its slope. The only damage is that people have to keep up with the requirement of demanding an amount of pay that's appropriate for the existing economy, so they have more money to spend when same is demanded of them.
It only means the life giving food is getting comparatively more rare than houses to live in. Just don't buy a second house but keep doing the same amount of work as in the 70's, so others can afford to get their first house and still eat by working 2 jobs like always. If you cna't keep up, you're the one causing the slope to tighten in the future, and that's what went wrong in "1998". Otherwise we could always have the middle shopping cart and work the same amount, but only the number of the money would go up, but that's ruined by people whining that the number that denotes the size of American market should never go up. That value of food should never go up and food producers should always be slaves to everybody else.

relative stupidity: thinking central banks can print or issue currency out of thin air (backed by no intrinsic value or physical commodity) would not consequently effect the nation's value of their legal tender.

The problem is not so much inflation but what causes inflation. This is why fiat money throughout history has ALWAYS failed and hyperinflated. I expect the same with the US dollar someday.

Fun fact: Between 1783 to 1913, the US dollar was a real store of wealth because inflation was essentially zero (except during wartime). If you saved a dollar in the year 1800, a hundred years later you could still buy the same amount of goods with your savings.

Until 1933, people carried gold coins in their pockets, and paper bills could be exchanged for gold and silver coins at any bank. In 1933 however, the gold of US citizen’s was confiscated by the government, and the dollar was devalued by 41%.

Even though gold was confiscated and no longer used to purchase assets or used for public financial transactions the US dollar was still backed by gold. The new system, created at the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944, tied the currencies of virtually every country in the world to the US dollar through a fixed exchange rate. It also tied the US dollar to gold at a fixed rate of $35 an ounce.

Not surprisingly, runaway spending on warfare and welfare caused the US government to print more dollars than it could back with gold at the promised price. Nations began to repatriate their gold from US reserves over the years and it caused big problems for our insolvent governmental spending.

In 1971 the US dollar was de-pegged from gold, effectively ending the gold standard. Since then the dollar has devalued by 98% even though being propped up as a reserve currency with the petrodollar standard over the years. Without the reserve currency (petrodollar standard) the US economy would have already crashed a while back ago and Americans would have suffered through hyperinflation.

That day has been postponed for some time, but it will inevitably happen at some point in the future (no matter how long we try postponing it).

Regardless if there was lack of such a fiat monetary system (where central banks simply create more currency out of thin air) that does not mean that currency would "disappear" after exchanged or that its value would necessarily be depreciated: it would simply flow from one entity to another entity. And the circulation of that currency would continue between entities increasing capital formation and services.

What your hypothesis proposes is similar to one saying "because we utilize capital formation today, we will later run out of capital itself." And to tell you the truth many communists tend to believe such nonsense! The world is abundant in resources, and most mineral resources are replenished naturally within the Earth (yes, oil and coal included!): so future capital can still be utilized and circulating around public and private sectors of industry and market places.

Keynesian economics focuses more on "fixed capital" ratios and yield as a way to control capital formation, output of goods/services and exchange (which is why Marxists love keynesian economics - it is all about consolidating and centralizing control over the market place and industry, thus capital itself!)

It is unfortunate that many universities preach the tainted flaws of keynesian economics as a "solution", when keynesian economics has created many many problems.

I would argue we should take a lesson from austrian economics. What we had in America described in the comment above (between 1783 to 1913) was austrian economics. Solid money backed by intrinsic value, something very difficult to devalue or manipulate (thus inflation was not a problem during that period of time in 'wild west' America). The problems all began when central bankers and our government took that away from us.

As far as bitcoin is concerned: my only problem with bitcoin (or other cryptocurrency) is simply what is it pegged to? Allegedly energy consumption to mine the crypto. It is not backed by any physical commodity or intrinsic value which is my primary concern. What keeps cryptocurrency from being manipulated or devalued?

I like the many things the blockchain has to offer though: decentralization (thats a good thing!), anonymity (cool, you can't really tax that!), optimization (entities can create multiple crypto-currencies, if one fails another one will take its place)... all of this is very good and healthy.

However, by definition it is still a fiat currency. Fiat currency - as been proven throughout history - never lasts forever. It always is manipulated, becomes devalued and is abused at the expense of everyone else using it. So I remain cautious. I think its a good platform to diversify some or a percentage of your wealth into, as a temporary safe haven. But as far as long term integrity? This will be very interesting to see what happens in the future!

Proceed with caution if you intend to invest or diversify wealth into it. I might dip my toes into the water at some point, just to get a feel for it.



Mexico Authorities Seize 800 Pounds Of Cocaine Being Delivered To The United States Social Security Institute Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 15:31:24 Id: fe0b20 [Preview] No. 3270 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
YES! The corruption is THIS bad!

Authorities in Mexico have seized a massive shipment of cocaine that was headed towards a U.S. government facility in America.

A statement from the Defense Department says the vehicle which was transporting the cocaine belonged to the United States Social Security Institute.

These types of vehicles typically are responsible for disaster aid or philanthropic programs inside of Mexico, most likely sent as earthquake relief.

Mexican Soldiers have now detained three men who were inside of the vehicle, claiming that they were employees or the Social Security Institute which has yet to be confirmed by the agency.

The truck originated in the Tamaulipas state capital of Ciudad Victoria bound for Reynosa, across the border from McAllen, Texas; and it remains unseen if it belongs to a Cartel or how they acquired the vehicle if that were the case.

There will be an ongoing investigation involving both United States Federal Agencies and Mexican authorities to determine whether anyone from inside either nation’s disaster programs was involved in the trafficking or even the theft of the vehicle.

Currently, the United States has not issued a formal statement as to the incident.

Newly Discovered Classified Clinton Emails Expose US Govt Collusion With Islamic Terrorists Within Libya Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 16:28:33 Id: c01fbf [Preview] No. 3274 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

New classified emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are dug up.

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has discovered more classified emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showing even more pay-to-play activity from the Clinton mafia.

Judicial Watch today released 109 pages of new Hillary Clinton emails from her tenure as secretary of state. The documents include two email exchanges classified confidential and a 2011 exchange with Sid Blumenthal about “serious trouble for the Libyan rebels.”

https://www.judicialwatch.org/document-archive/tag/hrc-emails-nov-2017/

The newly-produced emails were part of 72,000 pages of documents the FBI recovered last year in its investigation into Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. The records include emails Hillary Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose.

Two heavily redacted emails marked Classified Confidential included a November 2011 exchange under the Subject: “Egyptian MFA on Hamas-PLO talks,” and a June 28, 2011 email from Clinton to Abedin in which Clinton writes “I have now promised the Kuwaiti PM 3 times that I will deliver an address at the Oxford Islamic Center. Pls be sure that’s on the list for next Fall/next year.”

On March 9, 2011, Sid Blumenthal emailed Clinton about the situation in Libya, with the subject line “H: serious trouble for Libyan rebels. Sid” The email discusses urging leaders of the National Libyan Council (NLC) “to consider hiring private troops (mercenaries) to support, organize, and train the rebel forces in Libya.” Blumenthal adds that “a small number of private troops could turn the battle against Qaddafi’s forces, particularly if they are equipped with sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons.” Clinton asks former aide Huma Abedin to “print for me w/o any identifiers”.

The Washington Times reported Libyan officials were deeply concerned in 2011 that Clinton was responsible for weapons being funneled to NATO-backed rebels in Libya with ties to al Qaeda.

Clinton responds: “I’m copying Huma [Abedin] and asking her to see if we can help expedite this for you because we want you to be a citizen as soon as possible! I’ve got my fingers crossed. Happy New Year–H”

On August 4, 2009, Terrence Duffy, a donor to the Clinton Foundation and executive chairman of the derivatives giant CME Group, asks Clinton for her assistance in setting up meetings with Asian leaders.

I am planning a trip to Asia for October 3-10. While there, I will be traveling to Beijing, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore and I was wondering if there is any way you could help set up a meeting or 2 with some elected officials in any of those regions. Once again, you’re doing an amazing job and all of America is very fortunate to have you as our Secretary of State.”

Clinton responds: “Terry–I’m emailing from Capetown [sic], one of my favorite cities in the world. I’m copying your email to Huma so she can follow up w you regarding your Asia trip. Hope you’re well. All the best, H”

Judicial Watch previously reported that Duffy had also asked Clinton in September to arrange “government appointments” for his October trip. Duffy gave $4,600 to Hillary’s 2008 presidential campaign; in November 2013 CME Group paid Hillary Clinton a $225,000 speaking fee and has donated between $5,001 and 10,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

In November 2016, the State Department was ordered to produce no less than 500 pages of records a month to Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in May 2015 after the State Department failed to respond to a March 18, 2015, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)). The lawsuit seeks:

All emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in her official capacity as secretary of State, as well as all emails by other State Department employees to Secretary Clinton regarding her non-“state.gov” email address.

Why Go Through Horrific Chemo Radiation When Eating Frozen Lemon Peels Have Been Proven To Destroy Cancer Cells? Reader 11/18/2017 (Sat) 13:49:56 Id: 32fafa [Preview] No. 3234 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Frozen lemons are more powerful that chemotherapy in the fight against cancer, according to new research from Stanford University that is being desperately covered up by Big Pharma.

The study proves that powerful nutrients in lemon peel can destroy the cancer cells of 12 types of cancer, including some of the deadliest – prostate, colon, pancreatic and lung cancer.

Explaining that the most potent way to consume lemons is to freeze them and then consume them along with their peel, researchers state that we have been making a terrible mistake when it comes to lemons because the lemon peel is actually much more health beneficial than the fruit and we have been throwing it to waste.

How best to take advantage of the potent nutrients in this amazing fruit’s skin?

First rinse the lemons thoroughly, then toss them in a zip lock bag and put them in the freezer. Wait until they’re completely frozen and grate the whole lemon with a regular grater. You can now add this grated lemon to whichever dish you want, sprinkle it on top your ice-cream or salad or add it to your smoothies and shakes.

Lemon sprinkles will make everything taste better and will add to the meal’s nutritional profile as well. It turns out that the lemon peel contains up to 10 times more vitamins than the fruit’s juice so health experts all across the globe recommend it.

Green Healthy Planet reports: If you start following this rule of thumb when consuming lemons, freezing them and eating them with their peel, you’ll gain far greater health benefits than extracting the lemon juice alone. All the vitamins and other nutrients located in the lemon peel will regenerate every cell and tissue in your body and help your body detox.

Health experts have said that the lemon skin has an effect thousand times more powerful than chemotherapy and plus it doesn’t have any of the adverse side-effects associated with chemo.

The pharmaceutical companies that run this world want to keep this a secret until they find a way to synthesize it and turn it into a drug they can make profit of but how many people are going to die until then?

Look up intravenous injection of pure vitamin C to combat cancer. Many woman with breast cancer now get this to prevent the cancer cells from growing. Does not 100% heal the patients but it does stifle the malignancy of the cancer.

Full recovery of cancer is next to impossible, even with chemo (chemo creates collateral damage on your body, many end up even worse than they did with just the cancer).

I'll put this simply: there are some natural treatments available other than popping pills and going through radiation therapy. However, the major Pharmaceutical corporations prefer you stick to their "traditional" treatments (chemo and pills). That does not mean there are not other alternative/natural ways to stifle cancer cells from growing. There indeed are. But because Big Pharma can't make bottom line profits from these natural treatments they choose not to promote them and try to persuade people this is all a "conspiracy" (ie 'shut up and listen to us, only us and pay us for our services!') In fact it is the Pharmaceutical corporations that have been lobbying politicians for years to outlaw natural treatments and trying to make draconian laws to force their services on us (whether we agree or not). Of-course this is looked at as very tyrannical in many countries including America and is highly resisted and protested against.

Again, there is no "cure" for cancer. Its a debate on what works best for patients and what is most convenient (or who can make the most money providing services for cancer treatments).

PS: the best "cure" for cancer is preventing it in the first place. Eat organic fruits and veggies. Avoid all pork products (no I am NOT Muslim for saying this: pork is nasty and very bad for your health). Avoid soda and junk foods - this stuff will give you cancer! Limit consumption of alcoholic beverages. Don't smoke. If you eat meat its OK: but remember grass-fed beef and chickens that are not raised in mass industrial-scale concentrated slaughter farms. Make sure they are raised by a local farmer you can trust who does not feed them GMOs or hormones. Make sure you don't consume nitrites. Avoid high-fructose corn syrup. Avoid splenda and 'white' (aka bleached) sugar - look for products that use natural cane sugar and consume those instead. Try to avoid GMOs whenever possible. Avoid fast food as much as possible - LEARN TO COOK!

Well fuck it, it's a human right now, lets sue everyone religious and have their kids taken away to be properly conditioned by the state. Next the push to ban home schools.

Following quote is from GetUp campaign, a mailing list i somehow ended up on after someone put my e-mail down for the kony2012 bullshit.

"Australia just said YES, clearing the way for Parliament to pass marriage equality!

This result is more than a majority in a survey. It's more than winning a campaign. It's even more than the joy and celebration couples and their families across Australia are today sharing.

We made history, working together.

Through conversations — some of which were hard, some of which were cathartic — we used our vulnerability as our strength, and our stories as our power. We kept focussed, not flinching when our opponents tried to distract or divide us.

This is why we won the postal vote — because in our millions, we worked together. And this is exactly how we'll get a bill passed, once and for all.

We've just pulled off the most extraordinary feat, but it's not over yet. Opponents of marriage equality like Tony Abbott, James Paterson and Cory Bernardi have already bolted from the starting blocks with nasty, discriminatory amendments to marriage equality legislation that would see equality given with one hand and cruelly snatched away with the other."

Oil Prices Could Double If Middle East Conflict Escalates Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 14:31:52 Id: 352e4b [Preview] No. 3264 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Barrel traders recently pushed the price of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil above $US 55; the first time in over two years.

Scarcity doesn’t really justify the upward price movement. There isn’t a shortage of oil in the world. But there could be, in the worst case, if missiles start flying between two of the world’s largest oil players: Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Maybe it won’t happen. But maybe it will. And that’s what the “geopolitical risk premium” is all about. It’s an anxiety surcharge that’s tacked onto every barrel of oil, in fear of supply disruption on a moment’s notice. And the fear is back.

After three years of naivety we’re back to acknowledging the known unknowns of the Middle East, the uncertainties that strap a 10-to-20 percent premium on the price of a barrel.

Paying a risk premium for oil is nothing new. It’s been around for decades and has gone up and down with the hostility thermometer of the Middle East.

Unusually, the pricing of risk dropped to zero around 2015. Three main reasons prompted a sense of world peace: the promise of the Iranian nuclear deal; a feeling that booming oilfields in Texas could offset any disruption; and a growing surplus of oil inventories in storage tanks around the world.

Of late, the notion of oil obsolescence has also perpetuated a feeling of nonchalance. “Who cares about the Middle East and their oil?” has been a question driven by the utopian narrative: “I’m not worried, everyone will be driving electric cars in a few years anyway.”

But it’s all been a false sense of security.

Electric cars are still rare. Oil remains vital to the world economy. Its geographic concentration is such that a large proportion of the world’s needs is produced from underneath layers of geopolitics, religious antagonism, authoritarianism, civil strife and corruption.

When I reflect on the extremes of oily politics, I pull out my old copy of Life Magazine from 1973, the year of the Arab oil embargo. Back then, in a rare moment of unity, Arabs came together to curtail oil shipments to the west, demanding that Israel cede lands it captured in the 1967 war.

I’m struck by the two-page spread showing a Dutch freeway that’s completely empty, not a car on the road due to widespread gasoline and diesel shortages. The disruption was less than three percent of world supply and lasted only a few months, but it was enough to momentarily paralyze transportation in affected countries—and change attitudes about energy security too. The fallout led to big changes in personal mobility—smaller cars, greater fuel economy and alternate modes of transport like high-speed rail—especially in Europe and Japan.

Juxtaposed on the fuel-starved image is a photo inset of a meeting between various leaders of the embargo. The snapshot is taken at a moment with lots of laughter, suggesting the not-so-subtle message that they were pleased with their destabilizing accomplishment. Maybe.

But no one is laughing now. Regional animosity is elevated, the weaponry is lethal and it’s hard to figure out allegiances and regional political ambitions. And the scale of consequence is bigger too: In 1973 oil consumption was almost 56 million barrels a day. Today it’s pushing 100 million bpd, with a quarter flowing through the Strait of Hormuz, a narrow, strategic chokepoint between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

The geopolitical premium is likely to increase over the next year. Oil markets are slowly heading back towards what OPEC calls “balance” and global inventories are gradually draining. The calculus is pretty simple: Progressively thinner margins for error, plus greater risk of disruption, equals more volatile prices to the upside.

If oil supply is pinched again, for whatever machination or military operation, the price of a barrel could easily double (prices quadrupled as a result of the 1973 embargo). And 20 years from now we may look back at a magazine spread of a freeway, this time showing a handful of cars—only the electric variety.

Higher oil prices are generally welcomed by petroleum producers and their upstream stakeholders. Yet amplified volatility and the potential of another oil crisis is a greater friend to purveyors of electric vehicles; they are the natural beneficiaries to their rival’s instability.

Spywatches Banned In Germany Reader 11/18/2017 (Sat) 16:43:50 Id: 6d9975 [Preview] No. 3241 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
German regulators have banned certain types of 'smartwatches' marketed to children, saying the devices have been used to listen in on school classrooms and run afoul of Germany's surveillance restrictions.

The Bundesnetzagentur, or Federal Network Agency, said in a statement issued Friday that watches that would allow parents to "listen unnoticed to a child's environment" constitute an unauthorized transmitting system.

The agency said parents have been using watches marketed to children between the ages of 5 and 12 to monitor teachers.

It didn't name specific brands, but advised schools to be on the lookout for such devices.

The agency also says that if buyers of the products become known to authorities, they will be told to destroy the watches.

Venezuela and Zimbabwe Show Why Physical Gold & Silver Is The Ultimate Protection of Wealth Reader 11/18/2017 (Sat) 17:35:02 Id: f0dee1 [Preview] No. 3245 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A military coup-de-grace in Zimbabwe and a bankrupt Venezuela. Both countries have extreme hyperinflation, citizens are starving and basic medical treatment is near impossible to find. These are the real world problems 47.5 million people are currently facing.

Presidents Robert Mugabe and Nicolas Maduro both deny the crises in their respective countries. For Maduro it is the media propagating false truths. In Zimbabwe the response to hyperinflation has been to declare it illegal.

Both countries are in the media spotlight after a significant week that has left one man powerless and another scrambling to restore faith in his bankrupt country.

Each country’s mess is thanks to mismanagement of resources and the central banking system. Citizens have had their rights almost decimated as the cash in the bank is worth increasingly less and fewer people are receiving income. Basic goods and services are near impossible to come by, with little sign of let-up.

The hyperinflation and economic situations in both the Latin American and south African country are a reminder of the damage caused by governments. Both Maduro and Mugabe have acted under the premise of serving the electorate. Citizens as a result have only suffered and seen their wealth diminish on a daily basis.

Both countries may seem a million miles away from the West in terms of political situation and cultures. However there is a strong lesson to be learnt. Savers should learn the need to protect their earnings and wealth from the manipulative decisions of governments and destructive monetary policies.

We all recall the hyperinflation event of 2008 when Zimbabwe suffered the second most severe episode of hyperinflation in recorded history. Zimbabwe’s annual inflation rate reached 89.7 sextillion (10^23) percent. In response Mugabe and his cronies replaced the Zimbabwean currency with the US currency.

Now Zimbabwe is undergoing a fresh currency crisis as well as a coup-de-grace. It is facing shortages of the US dollar and banks are being forced to ration withdrawals. The bond notes, issued to make up the shortfall, have dropped sharply in value on black market exchanges. The end result is inflation in retail stores and foreign suppliers refusing to accept the made-up-money.

Today the country is thought to be heading back towards 2008, once again. Steve Hanke, economics professor at Johns Hopkins University has calculated that as of 25 October this year the monthly rate of inflation is 77% and the annual rate is 348%. The official dollar-denominated rate is 0.38%. This is hyperinflation and not something you can just outlaw or ignore.

Should this happen this will be even more damming for those with cash in the bank. Currently they are able to withdraw physical cash in order to keep on top of the daily increase in inflation. Now they will have little choice but to sit and watch its value disappear.

The enforced holding of cash in the bank will no doubt bring with it capital controls as citizens are prevented from exchanging the bolivar for stronger currencies such as the US dollar. The first step has already been taken as Maduro has tried to contain the financial rout by banning the publication of black market rates. Something Mugabe also tried.

Venezuela’s default should also be of concern to citizens elsewhere, especially in the US. It has come to light that a number of Americans with 401(k) own a hefty amount of Venezuela’s $60 billion debt. How will this work out if the country is unable to pay or has its debt restructured?

Avoid exposure to hyperinflation

Here in the West we are currently extremely fortunate as we are not facing political leaders such as Maduro or hyper inflationary scenarios as those seen in both Zimbabwe and Venezuela.

However, as evidenced just above we may still be exposed in the immediate sense to the failings of these countries, whether through our pension plans or investments elsewhere.

Even if you can be certain that you hold no Venezuelan debt or exposure to the Zimbabwean economy this is still a lesson in how one must diversify their assets outside of cash and the banking system. This is thanks to ultimate control institutions and governments have over these entities, should they so choose.

By holding assets outside of the system you can work to protect your wealth from such measures as those seen in Zimbabwe and Venezuela. Gold is one of the best examples. When held in a physical, allocated and segregated manner the owner cannot be prevented from accessing it whenever they so wish. Nor can it be devalued at will or suddenly illegal to trade. It is a borderless currency that acts without the control of governments looking to further their own wealth or political beliefs.

Plastic figurines won't be worth shit during a serious crisis, but extra food, water + filters or a distiller, proper sanitary assets (bulk TP, tissue boxes, soap, shampoo, bic razors for shaving, tampons, condoms, etc), guns/ammo/clips/rem oil/spare parts, clothing, firewood + a wood burning stove, solar generator, etc. ... having stuff like that will save you and your family during hyperinflation (or some other crisis) and those without this stuff would be left miserable, likely die.

On the other hand, if you manage to survive and still have those figurines with you, I'm sure they'd sell for nostalgic value someday.

Terabytes Exposed! US Military Caught Red Handed Spying On Civilians' Social Media Accounts Reader 11/18/2017 (Sat) 16:58:20 Id: 2b5862 [Preview] No. 3242 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Three misconfigured AWS S3 buckets have been discovered wide open on the public internet containing "dozens of terabytes" of social media posts and similar pages – all scraped from around the world by the US military to identify and profile persons of interest.

The archives were found by veteran security breach hunter UpGuard's Chris Vickery during a routine scan of open Amazon-hosted data silos, and these ones weren't exactly hidden. The buckets were named centcom-backup, centcom-archive, and pacom-archive.

CENTCOM is the common abbreviation for the US Central Command, which controls army operations in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. PACOM is the name for US Pacific Command, covering the rest of southern Asia, China and Australasia.

Vickery told The Register today he stumbled upon them by accident while running a scan for the word "COM" in publicly accessible S3 buckets. After refining his search, the CENTCOM archive popped up, and at first he thought it was related to Chinese multinational Tencent, but quickly realized it was a US military archive of astounding size.

"For the research I downloaded 400GB of samples but there were many terabytes of data up there," he said. "It's mainly compressed text files that can expand out by a factor of ten so there's dozens and dozens of terabytes out there and that's a conservative estimate."

Just one of the buckets contained 1.8 billion social media posts automatically fetched over the past eight years up to today. It mainly contains postings made in central Asia, however Vickery noted that some of the material is taken from comments made by American citizens.

The databases also reveal some interesting clues as to what this information is being used for. Documents make reference to the fact that the archive was collected as part of the US government's Outpost program, which is a social media monitoring and influencing campaign designed to target overseas youths and steer them away from terrorism.

Vickery found the Outpost development configuration files in the archive, as well as Apache Lucene indexes of keywords designed to be used with the open-source search engine Elasticsearch. Another file refers to Coral, which may well be a reference to the US military's Coral Reef data-mining program.

"Coral Reef is a way to analyze a major data source to provide the analyst the ability to mine significant amounts of data and provide suggestive associations between individuals to build out that social network," Mark Kitz, technical director for the Army Distributed Common Ground System – Army, told the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association magazine Signal back in 2012.

Vickery was able to identify Outpost development configuration files in the databases along with the Apache Lucene keywords indexes that were developed for Elasticsearch, an open-source search engine. Vickery also identified Another file titled Coral, and it probably referred to the very famous, award-winning Coral Reef data-mining program from the US military.

Back in 2012, Army Distributed Common Ground System’s technical director Mark Kitz stated that Coral Reef is developed to analyze a data source so that the analyst can mine a significant amount of data and assess the association between individuals to create a social network.

“Previously, we would mine through those intelligence reports or whatever data would be available, and that would be very manual-intensive,” stated Kitz back then.

Vickery revealed that he identified the openly accessible archives on 6th September 2017, much before Amazon released the new security controls to protect the S3 buckets, so it is yet to be seen how effective the new measures are. He also informed the US military about the availability of these databases, and soon these were locked down while the military also thanked Vickery for notifying them about the issue.

Although we do know exactly why Coral Reef was developed by US military and that monitoring or even collecting social media posts is nothing to be worried about but finding out that such material is quite easy to be identified given its poor configuration then one is bound to get disturbed. These kinds of open archives are no less than a treasure trove of data for intelligence agencies as well as cybercriminals and enemies of the state. As noted by UpGuard security in its blog post:

“While a cursory examination of the data reveals loose correlations of some of the scraped data to regional US security concerns… the apparently benign nature of the vast number of captured global posts, as well as the origination of many of them from within the US, raises serious concerns about the extent and legality of known Pentagon surveillance against US citizens.”

“In addition, it remains unclear why and for what reasons the data was accumulated, presenting the overwhelming likelihood that the majority of posts captured originate from law-abiding civilians across the world.”

CDC: Around 90% of Americans Are Very Unhealthy, Have Horrible Diets, Will Not Live Long Reader 11/18/2017 (Sat) 14:17:46 Id: a6d3b2 [Preview] No. 3236 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/3146

Only a sliver of Americans eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Just 12% of Americans eat the minimum daily fruit recommendation of one and a half to two cups per day, and only 9% consume the minimum daily vegetable recommendation of two to three cups per day, according to the study, published on Thursday.

“The study confirms years of data demonstrating that Americans do not eat their veggies,” Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition and food studies at New York University, told the Guardian. “Assuming this result is close to reality, it suggests the need for taking much stronger action to make it easier and cheaper to eat fruits and vegetables.”

The study, which broke out groups of Americans by state, class, race and gender, found some subgroups were even less likely to eat enough produce.

Men, young adults and people living in poverty all had especially low rates of fruit and vegetable intake. While 15.1% of women eat the recommended amount of fruit each day ,just 9.2% of men do the same. Similarly, 11.4% of wealthy Americans eat enough vegetables, but only 7% of poor people did the same.

Because a poor diet is linked to cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes, public health authorities have long endorsed a diet rich in fruit and vegetables.

Plane Crashes Into Helicopter Mid-air Over Rothschild Family's Buckinghamshire Estate Reader 11/18/2017 (Sat) 13:06:52 Id: 74b2d0 [Preview] No. 3229 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Four people are feared dead after a light aircraft and a helicopter crashed in mid-air over the Buckinghamshire countryside this afternoon.

Wreckage from both aircraft fell from the sky after those living near the historic Waddesdon Manor estate heard a loud bang shortly after midday.

The pilot of the helicopter and its single passenger, as well as the pilot and a passenger of the plane, are all feared to have died in the crash, which happened at around 1,000ft.

Pictures from the scene show fragments of the helicopter's rotor-blades and the plane's fuselage scattered around the woodland floor.

A local resident told MailOnline: 'My father heard a loud bang. He ran up to the scene. It was clear pretty quickly that no one has survived.'

The local resident added: 'My mother said a man, who I think was someone who had been out walking nearby, went running up to the manor to say there had been a crash. Everyone is now helping the emergency services.'

Both aircraft involved had taken off from Wycombe Air Park, which is 16 miles to the south east of the estate, and were flying at low altitude.

At least seven fire engines and three search and rescue vehicles rushed to the scene after the first 999 call came in at 12.06pm.

The plane that crashed is believed to be a Cessna 152, a popular training aircraft which has space for only one pilot and one passenger.

I'll admit I hope this elitist arrogant demon died although 40 acres is a lot of land to come crashing down in so chances that it killed Jacob Rothschild are pretty slim.

Although if they don't release the names of those killed soon it could be construed as suspicious.



China Vindicates Trump, Mocks Paris Climate Accord with Record CO2 Emissions Reader 11/17/2017 (Fri) 03:28:31 Id: c46997 [Preview] No. 3214 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
China’s CO2 emissions are shooting to the moon:

https://web.archive.org/web/20171117032306/https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/nov/13/global-emissions-2-pct-despite-us-drop/

Several studies released by the Global Carbon Project say worldwide carbon emissions are projected to jump about 2 percent this year after staying flat for three years, according to preliminary estimates.

The culprit, the data show, is China, which has kept its emissions in check in recent years but now shows a massive rise in pollution. Under the Paris pact, China agreed to cap its emissions by 2030, meaning it is still free to increase pollution.

China’s uptick this year, after a 1 percent drop in 2015 and flat emissions last year, is largely a result of the country’s increased use of fossil fuel

This is very bad news if you believe in the man-made global warming fairy.

But it’s great news if you’re Donald Trump. It means that his decision to pull out of the UN Paris Accord is vindicated – and for all the reasons he gave.

Here is the key section from the President’s Rose Garden speech in June this year when he announced the U.S. withdrawal.

"For example, under the agreement, China will be able to increase these emissions by a staggering number of years — 13. They can do whatever they want for 13 years. Not us. India makes its participation contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid from developed countries. There are many other examples. But the bottom line is that the Paris Accord is very unfair, at the highest level, to the United States.

It just so happens America DOES have restrictions and regulations. We have emissions tests on our vehicles, we have bans on certain products that use too much energy, we have coal plants that have advanced carbon filtering (most of what comes out of those smokestacks today is steam), we have more nuclear plants than ever before and we have plenty of wind power generators in the rural areas last time I checked.

We don't need the a fucking corrupt globalist bureaucracy breathing down our necks and trying to extort us and blame us for everything China gets away with.

Go pick on China... oh you won't, you'll keep blaming everything on us! Bias fuck.

On another note we have something called "Constitutional law", which our previous president DID NOT abide by.

In our Constitution it mandates 2/3rds of our Congress must get together to ratify an international treaty before it becomes law. Guess what? Our previous president never got permission from Congress, he blatantly disobeyed and usurped our rule of law.

The only thing Trump did was correct that. We never legally signed on to anything.

Every Christian Must Carry Their Cross

“For that they will be condemned. They must be judged. They are a reproach in My sight. Many will go to Hell for refusing to follow Me. Your LORD has spoken.” —Christians quit carrying their crosses back in the ‘80’s and began following the false prophets.
________
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:37-39

EDIT: This is now the /pol/ containment thread

Hi dear site owners,

We have a problem with /pol/. One of our newly appointed mods is apparently the "nigger spammer" who is using Tor to bump old threads. I am suspecting the BO and the mod to be either one and the same person using different VPN mod accounts or BO has hi-jacked the board to crash it by employing his friends or family members.

Right now i was banned for exposing the new mod to be the spammer himself in the board own meta thread. As you may understand /pol/ is a NS board which is targeted by so many groups of people.
While the new mod is creating dozens of "honey pot" threads old popular threads were slid and /pol/ is dying.
The board is dying and I don't know what we suppose to do.
Some posts and threads are deleted, I myself was banned in the meta thread. The mods are creating a chaos and they they use it to ban random people and lock and delete unwanted threads.


The BO himself has developed the tactic to let the mods do the job for him so he keeps his clean image. Once a mod has messed up the board far enough he simply replaces him (likely with the same guy by deleting the old mod account and creating a new one. Ocolette is owning the board for approximately 5 months now and it has become same bs as 8/pol/ were people are getting banned unfairly and for ridiculous reasons.

I have taken screenshots and archived all evidence. I'm ready to upload it if required.
People are now leaving /pol/ in big numbers and I ask you to help to save the board from Ocolette and his moderation.

ICE Agents Angry Trump Hasn't Purged Obama's Corrupt Holdovers At The Top Ranks Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 23:31:02 Id: 3e5aa5 [Preview] No. 3160 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The country’s immigration enforcement officers launched a website Tuesday demanding that President Trump do more to clean up their agency, saying he has left the Obama team in place and it’s stymying his goal of enforcing laws on the books.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement supervisors in Philadelphia banned officers from wearing bulletproof vests during an operation in the dangerous “badlands” section in the city’s north for fear of offending the immigrant community, according to a new website, JICReport.com.

Meanwhile, officers in one Utah city are required to give city officials seven days’ heads-up before arresting anyone — and by the time they go to make the arrest, the immigrants they are targeting have taken off, the website says.

Compiled by the National ICE Council, which represents ICE officers, the website is part whistleblower and part primal scream for Mr. Trump to pay attention to a group of people who were among his staunchest backers during the presidential campaign.

“ICE Officers grudgingly admit that the only President they ever endorsed hasn’t kept his word, and many officers now feel betrayed,” the officers say on the website.

National ICE Council President Chris Crane, in an open letter to Mr. Trump, posted on the site, said he finds himself regularly having to defend the president to ICE officers who backed Mr. Trump during the campaign but now feel “stab[bed] in the back” by the administration.

Mr. Crane said he gives Mr. Trump the benefit of the doubt but that those around the president — whom he doesn’t name — appear to be trying to shield him from hearing about the continued struggles at ICE.

“While officers view the President’s position on enforcement as courageous, the Trump administration has left all of the Obama managers and leadership in place, a group that ICE Officers know after the last eight years to be completely incompetent, corrupt and anti-enforcement,” Mr. Crane wrote.

Not sure what your first point is. The point of the image is that knee-jerk racists are cavemen morons skipping leg day. Your second point seems pretty fucked up: You're propose shifting the exploitation from illegal immigrants to poor citizens and continuing to pay them sub-poverty wages without benefits as some kind of solution? Your third point misses the point: Big agribusiness in the US has a big problem, which is that they are dependent on government subsidies and profit margins made possible by a million illegal immigrants. We can't simply be fucking morons like Trump and some of the ICE officers and just clean all the labor out. Poor citizens will not step in and fill those stay-poor jobs at shit wages and no benifits unless they feel barrels of guns at their backs. Round up more nonviolent drug offenders for our for-profit prison system and use them maybe? It's not a simple problem. What exactly is the regulation that you're proposing?

First of all no one was being "racist" here. Simple question: what happens when an American citizen crosses into Mexico illegally and tries to stay over there? The Truth is they get arrested and would be lucky to be allowed deportation within the next 10 years holed up in a prison cell. That's the truth.

Most countries do not allow illegal immigration. Most countries have logical reasons they protect their borders. As should we.

Allowing and promoting foreign slave labor into the United States to take away American jobs doesn't just make you a traitor, it makes you a corporate cock-sucker riding on the dicks of rich CEOs who exploit human slave labor.

These companies don't want to hire Americans because we DEMAND hirer pay! We DEMAND better treatment! And guess what? When the illegals ain't here, we are able to get better pay AND better treatment! And you know what? All those special interests you cock suck don't like it that way! Boo fucking hoo. It is supposed to be OUR government's job to protect US and OUR interests!

The difference is American citizens are not allowed to be treated like slaves, but illegals have no working rights because no one cares how they are treated... they are NOT even considered "citizens" by law.

The difference being American workers are treated FAR BETTER and get HIGHER PAY than the foreign slave laborers.

By supporting foreign slave labor you are essentially supporting corporate overrulers lowering wages and molding this nation into a third world slave labor farm factory. (Thanks alot, communist!)

I dare you to walk up to an average American worker in real life and say "you shouldn't have the right to make a decent living and income, foreign slave labor should replace you." They'd hold contempt for people like you. Rightfully so.

BOOM! Turkey Rejects Rothschild Banking Cabal: Ditches Dollar, Flips East And Buys Up Gold Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 16:17:19 Id: eadfa6 [Preview] No. 3180 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Turkey has rejected the corrupt House of Rothschild, as citizens and banks drop the US dollar in favor of gold.

The central bank has sharply ramped up gold buying in recent months, in a move a World Gold Council report calls a ‘revolt against the International Monetary Fund.’

According to the report, investments in gold have reached record highs as the people rise up and reject the Rothschild-controlled IMF.

Rt.com reports: “Bar and coin purchases, a measure of investment demand, were 47 metric tons so far in 2017, compared with 14.8 tons in the same period a year ago,” ZeroHedge quotes the report as saying.

Turkey Buys 47 Metric Tons of #Gold in 2017 YTD $GLD $TUR pic.twitter.com/4qRoOqFUzC

— GoldInvestingAdvice (@Gold_Advice) November 14, 2017

The Turkish central bank has bought almost 30.4 tons of gold this year. The surge in buying is reportedly triggered by state measures aimed at diversifying international reserves in light of rising tensions between Turkey and its traditional Western allies the US and Europe.

A year ago, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the Turkish public to keep savings in gold and avoid the US dollar, urging the central bank to back that policy.

At the same time, the exchange value of the Turkish lira has dropped 15 percent since the beginning of October. The plunge inevitably makes the national currency increasingly unattractive as a savings vehicle.

You know the little known "secret" why Western elites hate Putin so much? Not because he's former KGB. Not because he's a nationalist. Not because he's trying to undermine the petrodollar reserve currency either.

It's because Putin despises the Rothschilds, seized their asset holdings in Russia, ran them out of Russia under threat of arrest and nationalized the Russian central banking system which is now in control of the Russian government - not the Rothschild cabal.

THAT is why they hate Putin so much.

Just because you recognize Israel as a nation state does not necessarily mean you must allow them to boss you around. I think Russia knows there is a red line in the sand and I think they recently made it very clear in Syria (Russia was the prime reason Assad never got the Mossad treatment), as well as kicking the Rothschilds out of Russia and nationalizing their central banking system.

I only wish the US would act in a similar manner, there needs to be some lines in the sand where we say "Hell No!" to Israel. If (((they))) want to go try taking over the middle east they should do it on their own, we should not allow ourselves to be dragged into all of it. One reason I currently DO NOT recommend joining the US military today: its not worth dying for (((offshore interests))), they are disrespectful to our veterans who get the poorest of care and its just a smack in the face to see so many of our veterans end up shooting heroin, homeless in the streets and many killing themselves. Disgusting we pay Trillions of $$$ for ... WHAT!? Destabilizing the Mid East for Israeli interests!? Its got to stop. I have my hopes that someday it will stop, only when we say enough is enough!

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) took to Twitter on Wednesday to hint that his Republican colleagues are ready to cave on gun control.

Democrats have pushed over ten different gun controls since the October 1 Las Vegas attack. Those include a ban on semiautomatic weapons, “high capacity” magazines, bump stocks, and “assault weapons.” The gun controls also include calls for an Australian-style gun ban, a ban on trigger cranks, and the implementation of expanded background checks, even though the Las Vegas gunman—and almost every mass public attacker of recent memory—passed a background check for his firearms.

Sen. Murphy personally pushed for a ban on bump stocks and “assault weapons,” and called for more background checks as well.

On Wednesday he hinted that unnamed Republicans may be ready to join the gun control push, tweeting:

Big news: super close to a bipartisan breakthrough on gun legislation. Stay tuned…

— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) November 15, 2017

Nine Senate Republicans signed a letter calling for a hearing on bump stocks after the Las Vegas attack. The nine signatories were Sens. Dean Heller (R-NV), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), James Lankford (R-OK), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Tim Scott (R-SC), John Thune (R-SD), James Inhofe (R-OK), and John Cornyn (R-TX).

Traitors: Establishment RINO Cucks To Push Mass Deliberate Destabilization Against America (Amnesty) Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 18:54:08 Id: d2cfd3 [Preview] No. 3189 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
RELATED: >>>/news/2958 ; >>>/news/3142

The bipartisan national-security establishment from the past three administrations is urging Congress to pass legislation before the end of the year that would give amnesty to roughly 3.3 million illegal aliens.

In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), 13 national security officials asked that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) DREAM Act be quickly passed through the House and Senate.

Under the President Obama-created DACA program, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have been shielded from deportation and given work permits to remain in the United States. In September, though, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DACA program would officially end on March 2018.

The establishment figures say they want to see the amnesty for illegal aliens be passed through Congress and signed by President Trump “as quickly as possible.”

With every day that passes, these Dreamers are getting closer to the reality of deportation. We urge you to pass the Dream Act of 2017 as quickly as possible to provide permanent protection for Dreamers and relieve this deserving group of the uncertainty created by the President’s decision to rescind DACA. We should leave no man or woman behind. Let that be our guiding principle.

The DREAM Act is one of the largest amnesties for DACA illegal aliens that have been crafted thus far in Congress, allowing not just those on the DACA rolls to permanently remain in the U.S., but also those who are eligible for DACA.

The amnesty legislation would apply to roughly 3.3 million illegal aliens in the U.S., according to the Migration Policy Institute, and would set at least 1.7 million of those illegal aliens on a pathway to U.S. citizenship.

Once given U.S. citizenship, illegal aliens are then allowed to bring their foreign relatives to the U.S. in what is known as “chain migration.” As Breitbart News has reported, a DACA chain migration could range from a mass migration of 9.9 to 19 million foreign nationals entering the U.S. over the next few decades.

PS: Corporations want amnesty. They love that cheap labor! They don't want to hire us Americans because they might have a bit more obligations (via more employee benefits, higher wages!)

I'd say the best thing to do is reduce the slave labor by preventing amnesty to those who illegally flood into *OUR* country.

I'm glad people are not so dumb they wouldn't come up with this meme, because it's a good meme, but technically RINOs are the real republicans, Democrats are DINOs, and and real democracy is conservative but has no option in USA where all politics is based on successful smear campaigns against good ideas.

It's true that RINOs play in the leftist court, but DINOs don't play in the democratic court but instead even further in the leftist court, completely absorbing any good PR the democratic liberalism gets by calling it leftist to their leftist voting bloc. This results in a massive population of idiots buying wholesale insane ideas like "Stalin failed because he made communism right-wing", in order to blame everything bad on "the right".

It's really entirely to blame on conservative citizens for trying to ride into power on back of the traitorous GOP and being too dumb to understand it's not a conservative option, and handing it off as the Satan for DNC's God and effectively creating a de facto single-party system on America. Shame on you, citizens! Also those who in their stupidity underpowered conservatism altogether, by choosing to be "liberals" in name only and vote DNC or GOP.



Traitors: Establishment RINO Cucks Now Pushing To Undermine 2nd Amendment, Mandate Mental Health Screening Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 18:55:08 Id: a95c3a [Preview] No. 3191 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A bipartisan group of senators Thursday unveiled legislation to "improve background-checks" for gun sales.

The bill represents an incremental update to existing law but has the best chance of any effort to pass through Congress.

The bill, crafted by Sens. John Cornyn, R.-Texas, and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., would attempt to "better enforce current law" and strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check system to ensure all background check information is uploaded.

The NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 provided millions to encourage the states to improve their data sharing.

But here's the kicker: this bill is intended to create mandatory mental health screening for gun owners and purchasers within all US states.

In other words, the government would be able to DENY your 2nd Amendment right under the pretense of claiming you "mentally unfit to own a firearm." If you have any record of disability, that could be used against you. If you have any record of having stress problems - or even depression - that also could be used against you.

Although the mainstream media is trying desperately to cover this fact up, they have hinted about mandatory mental health screening of individual gun owners.

This is EXACTLY what Obama's regime was pushing for after they failed to ban semi-auto firearms in Congress. Both Obama and Hillary called for mandatory mental screening, and in fact Obama signed an executive order to do just that, although later being declared unconstitutional and repealed thanks to Trump and (the real conservatives in Congress) revoking that executive order.

Saudi Arabia Purge Saved Their Economy: Instead Of Austerity Against The Poor They Seized Wealth From The Corrupt Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 20:15:36 Id: 0b30ac [Preview] No. 3196 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As we noted shortly after the Crown Prince’s purge of potential rivals within Saudi Arabia’s sprawling ruling family, while the dozens of arrests were made under the pretext of an "anti-corruption crackdown", Mohammed bin Salman’s ulterior motive was something else entirely: Replenishing the Kingdom’s depleted foreign reserves, which have been hammered for the past three years by low oil prices, with some estimating that the current purge could potentially bring in up to $800 billion in proceeds.

Furthermore, the geopolitical turmoil unleashed by the unprecedented crackdown helped push oil prices higher, creating an ancillary benefit for both the kingdom’s rulers and the upcoming IPO of Aramco.

And, in the latest confirmation that the crackdown was all about cash, the Financial Times reports today that the Saudi government has offered the new occupants of the Riyadh Ritz-Carlton a way out.... and it’s going to cost them: In some cases, as much as 70% of their net worth.

Saudi authorities are negotiating settlements with princes and businessmen held over allegations of corruption, offering deals for the detainees to pay for their freedom, people briefed on the discussions say.

In some cases the government is seeking to appropriate as much as 70 per cent of suspects’ wealth, two of the people said, in a bid to channel hundreds of billions of dollars into depleted state coffers.

The arrangements, which have already seen some assets and funds handed over to the state, provide an insight into the strategy behind Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s dramatic corruption purge.

The crackdown has led to the detention of hundreds of royals, ministers, officals and the country’s richest oligarchs including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the billionaire, Waleed al-Ibrahim, the founder of Middle East Broadcasting Center, which owns Al Arabiya, the Saudi satellite television channel, and Bakr bin Laden, chairman of the Saudi Binladin construction group and brother of Osama bin Laden.

Additionally, as we reported, the crackdown sent members of the country’s wealthy upper crust scrambling to liquidate their holdings and move their cash offshore, where they might have a better chance of keeping it away from the Saudi government.

Unsurprisingly, the Saudi "offer" is working.

Some of the suspects, most of whom have been rounded up at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh since last week, are keen to secure their release by signing over cash and corporate assets, the FT's sources say.

“They are making settlements with most of those in the Ritz,” said one adviser. “Cough up the cash and you will go home."

One multi-billionaire businessman held at the Ritz-Carlton has been told to hand over 70% of his wealth to the state as a punishment for decades of involvement in allegedly corrupt business transactions. He wants to pay, but has yet to work out the details of transferring those assets to the Saudi state.

“They are looking for ways to isolate the tainted shareholder and keep the business going,” said the adviser.

Regular Saudis, who’ve seen their benefits cut and some of their jobs taken away, support MbS’s decision. “Why should the poor take all the pain of austerity,” said one Saudi academic. “The rich need to pay their way too.”

In Saudi Arabia, they are about to do just that.

>>>/operate/7122 it's good reading, he came in with a balloon knot and left with a rectum that you could park a utility van in

so it seems like a good time to reassess the state of the board.

Since October 1st, there have been 0.6 original posts per day on /tech/. I use the term "original" with some reservation, as some of them are just verbatim reposts from 8/tech/. There have been an average of 8.13 replies per day, but most of them were one-line comments or barbs without substance, or memes, or corrections to a previous post. We're averaging about 1 substantive reply per day. Two on a good day. I didn't feel like digging into the numbers any further, but it's my impression that these averages don't even reflect how dire the situation is, as there was a burst of activity at the beginning of the month that has tapered off significantly.

/tech/ is not dead, but it's on life support, and, ironically, none of its denizens seems to know how to service the life support machine.

It would be a shame for this alternative to pigchan and Hiroshima's /g/ to wither through neglect.

Traitors: Establishment RINO Cucks Now Pushing Internet Censorship, Government Regulation of Online Media Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 18:56:45 Id: 70841e [Preview] No. 3192 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

In a major shift, RINO cuckservatives on the Federal Election Commission plan to join Democrats Thursday in calling for new Internet regulations on paid digital political ads.

In a statement issued late Wednesday, the three GOP members cited the “thousands of comments” from the public calling for new disclosure rules in light of concerns "Russian activists" used Internet posts on Facebook to try to influence the 2016 presidential elections.

“We hereby move to direct the Office of General Counsel to draft a notice of proposed rulemaking, as soon as is practicable, that proposes revisions to commission rules governing disclaimers on paid Internet and digital communications,” said the three, Vice Chair Caroline C. Hunter, Matthew S. Petersen, and Lee E. Goodman.

They called for a public hearing before any changes would take place.

The support for new disclosure on paid political communications on the Internet fell short of more liberal calls for regulation on non-paid ads and political communications posted on websites like Facebook and Twitter.

Still, it is a victory for communist commissioner Ellen Weintraub who has been pushing for regulations. She issued a note Wednesday saying that she would introduce a new regulation at Thursday’s meeting. In a separate note, FEC Chairman Steven T. Walther said he would move on the issue Thursday and called on Congress to consider new Internet laws.

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]

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.”

And idiots are proud of this and clap? Sad times we live in. Oh well, I'm glad I'm old and will be dead soon. Fucking good riddance to this hellhole Earth.

You do realize this isn't real, right? It's a "what if" scenario, literal science fiction. Yes, this is a very real issue and is coming tomorrow if not today, but no one applauded the coming of Skynet like it was a new iPhone. Shit, if you actually watched the video you'd know it wasn't real. Really wish this had been news so I could actually learn something about this, like say, whether this is the technology of "today" or "tomorrow" but fuck me, right? Not like this is a news board or anything.

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.

When I once warned this was going to happen on cuckchan I was called a "conspiracy theorist."

Well, ain't that a bitch?

Glad to be a goldbug who got rid of my debts by living frugal, working hard and not being just another mindless consumer taking out huge loans.

Now all these normies who teased me will be sucking my old fat dick one day for cash. Fine by me!

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.

Former Joe Biden Secret Service Agent: We Had to Protect Women From Him, “Weinstein Level Stuff” Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 17:07:36 Id: be087d [Preview] No. 3150 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A former Secret Service agent assigned to the Vice President Joe Biden residence claims that the Service often had to protect female agents from him.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, “We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.” The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family.

“He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said.

According to the source, a Secret Service agent once got suspended for a week in 2009 for shoving Biden after he cupped his girlfriend’s breast while the couple was taking a photo with him. The situation got so heated, the source told Cassandra Fairbanks, that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President.

Additionally, the agent claims that Biden would walk around the VP residence naked at night. “I mean, Stark naked… Weinstein level stuff,” he added.

He said that the men on duty would frequently stand in front of female agents and Navy women that were present “like a damn guardian.” On some occasions, they would make up reasons to get the women away from where he was.

The agent said he was specifically concerned about women in the Navy.

“They weren’t allowed to disobey him at all, but we’d take them away under pretend auspices,” the agent stated.

Best-selling author Ronald Kessler wrote about Biden’s problem with female agents in his book The First Family Detail.

Media Blackout: Millions Of Spanish Protest Fascist Government Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 16:12:10 Id: 521dc4 [Preview] No. 3147 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Millions of Spanish citizens have taken to the streets in Spain to protest the fascist move by the government to ignore the will of the people of Catalan.

The unprecedented protest, which has been completely ignored by the mainstream media, demands that the Spanish government immediately release the Catalan political prisoners and recognise the will of the Catalonian people.

“Look at all the people here! The independence movement is still going strong,” Pep Morales, a 63-year-old independence protester told reporters as he called for the release of Catalan’s leaders from prison.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: As a report from The Guardian noted in October, the Spanish government “took control of Catalonia, dissolved its parliament and announced new elections after secessionist Catalan MPs voted to establish an independent republic.” Then in November, a judge ordered eight members of the deposed Catalan government to be arrested pending charges for their involvement in the declaration of independence.

The blatant and ongoing corruption within Spain’s government has been both ignored and even justified by the mainstream media. As WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange noted, while the crowd of protesters reached nearly 1 million people, it was portrayed by the local media as an insignificant, regular protest.

“Watch this video of last night’s protest of around a million people calling for Spain to release Catalan political prisoners,” Assange wrote. “Then follow this link to see how this vast crowd was depicted on the front pages of Spain’s biggest ‘newspapers.’”

German Homeless Population Explodes In 2016 As Deliberate Destabilization Takes Its Toll Reader 11/15/2017 (Wed) 14:22:49 Id: 4836b9 [Preview] No. 3144 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
According to a recent estimate published by the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, the number of homeless people living on Germany’s streets has risen by 33% in a matter of just a couple of years, to 52,000. Meanwhile, as The Local notes, the number of Germans who can't afford their own home and have been forced to rely on the generosity of family and friends for a place to sleep every night has also risen a staggering 26%, to over 400,000 people.

In 2016 an estimated 52,000 people were living on German streets, an increase of a third on the 39,000 people who were living rough in 2014.

The report also claims that the overall number of people in Germany who don’t have their own home has risen sharply, from 335,000 in 2014 to 422,000 last year.

Most of the people who don’t have their own homes live in collective accommodation or have to rely on the charity of partners or family.

Of course, German officials have offered up a wide range of potential explanations for the country's exploding homelessness crisis, with Thomas Specht, head of the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, blaming restricted housing supply, rising rents and stagnant wages.

“The numbers presented today on homelessness are shocking,” said Ulrike Mascher, President of the VdK social association.

“In our view this proves that ever more people are unable to pay their rents because of low wages and over-indebtedness.”

Thomas Specht, head of the Federal Association for Assistance for the Homeless, said that rising rents were just one cause of the negative development.

He pointed out that since 1990 the number of council flats had dropped by 60 percent to 1.2 million, because local councils had sold off many properties to private investors.
