US Army Takes 50 Tons Of Gold From Syria In Alleged Deal With ISIS Reader 03/01/2019 (Fri) 15:21:18 Id: db5b40 [Preview] No. 14140 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As the remaining pockets of ISIS fighters faced imminent defeat in northeast Syria, the United States allegedly gave them an offer they couldn’t refuse: give us your massive caches of gold - or die.

According to reports by Syrian state news agency SANA, U.S. forces struck a deal with ISIS whereby the terrorist group would give up 50 tons of gold across eastern Syria’s Deir el-Zour province in exchange for safe passage.

The precious metal, worth about $2.13 billion, was plundered by the self-designated “caliphate” as its reign of terror spread across Syria and Iraq between 2015 and 2017.

Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah reports that local sources claim U.S. Army helicopters have already transferred the gold from the U.S. forces’ base in Kobani, the Kurdish-controlled city that lies close to Syria’s northern border with Syria. A portion of the gold was also distributed to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which dominates the U.S.-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The news comes after SANA claimed that locals witnessed U.S. helicopters airlifting large cases of gold amounting to about 40 tons from the al-Dashisha area in Hasaka’s southern countryside earlier this month. The gold was purportedly looted by ISIS from Mosul in Iraq and other parts of Syria.

The Syrian state media outlet claimed that ISIS leaders were on-hand to guide the U.S. helicopters to the places where the gold was stashed, “closing a deal by which Washington spared hundreds of the terror organization’s field leaders and experts.”

The claims by the Syrian government outlet coincide with reports by U.K.-based war monitor, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR), which alleged that the U.S. and its Kurdish allies had been sparing ISIS fighters in hopes of acquiring the group’s war spoils.

The SOHR said:

“The U.S.-led coalition forces and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) deliberately do not target the areas under the control of the ISIL terrorists and commanders in Eastern Euphrates in Deir el-Zour as they are trying to locate this treasure by forcing the ISIL militants to speak about its location after surrendering.”

I felt the same way reading this too. They often do steal other countries' gold reserves and yes prices are being manipulated via fraudulent ETFs flooding the markets and COMEX, to suppress the price of gold/silver. I'd recommend those who commodities as a way to preserve wealth, because no matter how much the prices are suppressed they will ALWAYS maintain value.

If I recall we stole Qaddafi's gold reserves too. Very nasty criminal activity is amok in our government and military. Very sad.

I really messed that sentence up, forgive me. I'd recommend those who desire to preserve their savings/wealth invest in physical commodities such as gold/silver coins because no matter how much the prices are suppressed they will ALWAYS maintain value.

I messed up my words after a night of drinking whiskey, so my head is not too clear yet.

Migrants Commit 70% of Violent Crimes in Norwegian Capital Reader 03/02/2019 (Sat) 04:32:07 [Preview] No. 14146 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Migrants are responsible for 70% of violent crimes committed in Oslo, Norway, according to a study by the country's largest commercial television broadcaster.

TV2 conducted a review of all verdicts involving serious bodily harm from 2018 until present day, and found that more than two-thirds of perpetrators had migration backgrounds, which is categorized as individuals who have migrated to Norway or those born to two immigrant parents.

Many of the attacks involved knives, bottles, or sharp glass and inflicted "lifelong injuries, deep cuts and cranial fractures."

"Over two of three gross violent incidents in Oslo were carried out by immigrants," TV2 reports. "This is despite the fact that, according to Statistics Norway, immigrants make up 33 percent of Oslo's population."

Violence researcher Ragnhild Bjørnebekk told TV2 she is not surprised by the figures, asserting that many migrants convicted of violent crimes come from societies where brutality is much more prevalent than in northern Europe.

"They are more vulnerable, they have experienced more trauma," Bjørnebekk said. "Some of them come from violent cultures, and they take it with them. And then there are some of those who are not Oslo citizens, who come from other countries and only stay here for a few months."

Parliamentary representative Himanshu Gulati believes officials on Oslo's city council are to blame due to their support for lax immigration policies, specifically singling out City Councilor Raymond Johansen.

"He must understand that the policy he leads is having consequences," Gulati said. "If you want to maintain a high immigration to Oslo, then it will be harder to handle the problems we are now seeing."

According to Faith Goldy, a spiritual battle is taking place worldwide and is personified by "nationalists versus globalists."

Good! War Criminal Netanyahu to Be Charged With Bribery Pending Hearing Reader 02/28/2019 (Thu) 17:11:11 Id: 6859e2 [Preview] No. 14136 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Israel's Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit announced on Thursday his decision to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three separate cases, pending a hearing.

In Case 4000, Netanyahu is accused of providing regulatory concessions to Shaul Elovitch, the controlling shareholder of Bezeq telecommunications, in exchange for favorable coverage from Bezeq’s news website, Walla. The charge: Bribery and breach of trust.

In Case 1000, in which the prime minister is alleged to have accepted gifts from wealthy business figures in return for political favors, the charges are fraud and breach of trust.

In Case 2000, which centers around a deal between the prime minister and Arnon Mozes - favorable coverage in return for damaging the Sheldon Adelson's competing newspaper, Israel Hayom. The charge: Breach of trust and fraud.

Mendelblit's decision comes after three years of investigations, and it marks the first time in Israel's history that an attorney general announces an indictment for bribery against an incumbent prime minister.

"You have hurt the image of public service and public faith in it," Mendelblit wrote to Netanyahu in his decision. "You acted in a conflict of interests, you abused your authority while taking into account other considerations that relate to your personal interests and the interests of your family. You corrupted public servants working under you."

The Likud party petitioned the High Court on Thursday in a last-minute bid to block the announcement, but was rejected. In response, the ruling party said the court failed to stop the left from meddling in the election.

A request by Netanyahu’s attorneys to put off announcing the decision until after the April 9 general election was dismissed by Mendelblit, who cited “the principle of equality before the law and the public’s right to know about such important decisions.” Netanyahu responded by accusing the attorney general of "surrendering" to the left and the media.

Evil Child Grooming Gang Jailed for 130 Years Reader 03/01/2019 (Fri) 16:54:20 Id: 578ebf [Preview] No. 14142 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The evil and violent grooming gang who plied children with alcohol before raping them have been jailed for over 130 years by a UK judge.

One of the gang’s victims has spoken out about how the nine men had a harrowing impact on her life following the abuse.

Dailymail.co.uk reports:

She said: ‘I have the most irrational thoughts because of anxiety. ‘I have fear going to the shops, and very rarely go to restaurants or out on an evening with friends.

‘I was manipulated, used, nothing but a toy to play with. I understand this because new relationships are so much different.

‘I have had years of counselling to understand it wasn’t love it was grooming. ‘When Basharat was arrested I could not leave the house for three months.

‘I had to leave my job because of the dread of him or someone he knew walking through the door. ‘It pains me to see my dad in panic at the thought of Basharat turning up at our house.’

During the trial prosecutor Kama Mell QC said that the teenagers had been ‘ripe and vulnerable to manipulation’ and were subsequently subjected to a range of sexual abuse at the hands of the men in order ‘to satisfy their sexual desires’.

BASED Reader 02/23/2019 (Sat) 07:22:33 Id: 8db227 [Preview] No. 14115 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Denmark is tightening its asylum system with the passage of new laws referred to as a 'paradigm shift' by officials, Danmarks Radio reports.

The bill, formally titled 'Act 140,' was agreed upon in Parliament by the populist right-wing Danish People's Party (DPP) and the Social Democrats (SD) and will go into effect on March 1st.

A primary aim of the legislation is to reduce the number of 'refugees' in the country by focusing on repatriation instead of integration, according to DPP chairman Peter Skaarup.

"You have to get used to the fact that when you come to Denmark, you are here temporarily, and once you have had temporary shelter, you go back again," Skaarup said.

Key points of the bill include

Residence permits for foreigners must be temporary and can be more easily revoked or not renewed.
Refugees must return to their home countries once it is safe enough to do so.
The Minister of Immigration can set a national limit on family reunifications (chain migration) on a month-to-month basis.
Penalties for breaking an entry ban are significantly increased, with much stiffer prison sentences for those caught in Denmark after being expelled.
Social welfare benefits to migrants will be reduced.

Immigration and Integration Minister Inger Støjberg, who is known as a relative hardliner, says she expects a "noticeable effect" on the migrant population in Denmark as a result of the new laws.

Awesome news, great to hear more and more nations are waking up to this. Ironically Denmark was always a pretty "leftist" nation but it looks like even they are getting fed up with the Soros-EU deliberate destabilization agenda, or loxism as someone coined the term.

Facebook Whistleblower Exposes Malicious Algorithm Shadow Banning Conservative Content Reader 02/27/2019 (Wed) 22:12:46 Id: 6ce621 [Preview] No. 14133 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Project Veritas has just unleashed another massive bombshell that could begin the process of bringing down the dishonest social media tech giants and their “content cartels.”

Posted at this link on ProjectVeritas.com, a former high-level Facebook employee has gone public with irrefutable proof that Facebook applies a “de-boost” algorithm to conservative content in order to suppress its visibility and sharing.

Shockingly, internal Facebook documents admit this is being done “leading up to important elections,” thereby admitting to criminal election meddling and fraud. This is the crime that Robert Mueller claims “the Russians” carried out against the United States of America. In reality, Facebook has been engaged in this election meddling crime for several years now.

We are republishing the Project Veritas report here, and we encourage you to visit the original report on their website and also consider supporting Project Veritas with donations at this link.


Project Veritas has obtained and published documents and presentation materials from a former Facebook insider. This information describes how Facebook engineers plan and go about policing political speech. Screenshots from a Facebook workstation show the specific technical actions taken against political figures, as well as “[e]xisting strategies” taken to combat political speech.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said that to expose dishonesty and censorship in big tech companies, he will be relying upon more insiders, informants and leakers in the future:

Communist Chase Bank Is Quietly Refusing Service To Conservative Customers Reader 02/27/2019 (Wed) 15:20:55 Id: 94254a [Preview] No. 14131 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
J.P. Morgan’s Chase Bank has made a name for itself in recent years for donating big-dollar sums to liberal causes (see it’s announcement that it will no longer do business with the gun industry) and now it has started targeting conservative customers for their political views.

A number of prominent conservative activists have had their accounts suspended by Chase Bank in recent weeks. Martina Markota, Jordan Peterson, Milo Yiannopolous and Enrique Tarrio have all been targeted for their political beliefs.

It’s hard to imagine how conservatives could be even more complacent than they actually are about what’s being done to this country.

PJ Media report: The schools our children are taught in are almost universally run by liberals who hate everything we stand for, but we don’t demand that our representatives pull funding from state schools that behave that way.

Hollywood has become vocally, over-the-top hostile to Christians and conservatives, but we go see the movies anyway.

We still buy the papers and watch the cable news shows of networks that talk about us like we’re Nazis because we don’t agree with their liberal worldview.

More recently, increasingly monopolistic social media companies that have an inordinate amount of control over who gets heard and who doesn’t have started actively targeting conservatives and we just shrug or spout platitudes.

“If you don’t like the way they do it, take on those monopolies with hundreds of millions of users and billions in cash by building your own company.”

So, what happens when banks and credit card companies target people for their political views? Do we need to build our own banks, too?

What you're learning about Venezuela from the mainstream media may be lies. Are you surprised? Reader Board owner 02/25/2019 (Mon) 00:15:42 Id: 1b4074 [Preview] No. 14129 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
"Journalist Max Blumenthal visited state-subsidized food markets outside Caracas and, in a new video, showed that what the corporate media says doesn't exist in Venezuela can actually be easily found right at a local market. Blumenthal toured several state-subsidized markets outside the Venezuelan capital, witnessing “hundreds of people” purchasing basic goods there. He says that the produce is “sold well-below market value,” adding that the prices appear to be quite affordable for locals as well. The video shows locals leaving with large bags of groceries from the markets."

"There’s bread, meat and chicken, pasta, dried fish and assorted vegetables, even handcrafted soap at the market. “Behind me is toothpaste which CNN said does not exist in Venezuela,” Blumenthal says. The remark is followed by an expert from the broadcaster's reporting about US ‘humanitarian aid’ which contains the precious commodity that President Nicolas Maduro has supposedly deprived his people of. “We all are in peace here. Here we don't want war,” a woman at the market says, adding that she doesn't want “foreigners” to spark war. “And tell the news that we don't need anything. What we want is for the US to lift the blockade it has put on us in Venezuela. We are free.”

"Blumenthal, who is currently reporting from Venezuela, explained in an earlier interview with RT that many poor Venezuelans believe that their crisis stems from the US sanctions noose and the absence of the billions of dollars that Washington seized or prevented from entering the economy. Meanwhile those who hate Maduro and the whole idea of Chavismo are usually much wealthier people ''“who need humanitarian aid the least.” Blumenthal said that he's not denying that there is an economic crisis here but added that authorities are actively working to help the population."

"Washington, however, appears to be adamant to push its ‘humanitarian aid’ into the country, despite the chaos it caused on the border between Venezuela and Colombia. “What happened yesterday is not going to deter us from getting humanitarian aid into Venezuela,” a senior official with the US administration told reporters on Sunday. On Saturday, the ‘aid convoy’ was blocked by Venezuelan troops and several trucks were torched, reportedly by US-backed opposition activists who were seen preparing Molotov cocktails before the shipments caught fire. US Vice President Mike Pence is expected to announce “concrete steps”'' on how the US will try and push in a new batch of ‘aid’ on Monday, while meeting regional leaders in Bogota, Colombia."

Rogue Government Testing Out New Cyberweapons By Attacking Online Infrastructure Warns ICANN Reader 02/24/2019 (Sun) 12:37:54 Id: 7bd27e [Preview] No. 14127 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Key parts of the internet infrastructure face large-scale attacks that threaten the global system of web traffic, the internet's address keeper warned Friday.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) declared after an emergency meeting "an ongoing and significant risk" to key parts of the infrastructure that affects the domains on which websites reside.

"They are going after the internet infrastructure itself," ICANN chief technology officer David Conrad told AFP.

"There have been targeted attacks in the past, but nothing like this."

The attacks date back as far as 2017 but have sparked growing concerns from security researchers in recent weeks, which prompted the special meeting of ICANN.

The malicious activity targets the Domain Name System or DNS which routes traffic to intended online destinations.

ICANN specialists and others say these attacks have a potential to snoop on data along the way, sneakily send the traffic elsewhere or enable the attackers to impersonate or "spoof" critical websites.

"There isn't a single tool to address this," Conrad said, as ICANN called for an overall hardening of web defenses.

US authorities issued a similar warning last month about the DNS attacks.

Facebook Has Backdoors In ALL Smartphone Apps, And They Are Stealing ALL User Info Reader 02/24/2019 (Sun) 12:36:52 Id: e0c613 [Preview] No. 14126 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Millions of smartphone users confess their most intimate secrets to apps, including when they want to work on their belly fat or the price of the house they checked out last weekend. Other apps know users’ body weight, blood pressure, menstrual cycles or pregnancy status.

Unbeknown to most people, in many cases that data is being shared with someone else: Facebook Inc.

The social-media giant collects intensely personal information from many popular smartphone apps just seconds after users enter it, even if the user has no connection to Facebook, according to testing done by The Wall Street Journal. The apps often send the data without any prominent or specific disclosure, the testing showed.

It is already known that many smartphone apps send information to Facebook about when users open them, and sometimes what they do inside. Previously unreported is how at least 11 popular apps, totaling tens of millions of downloads, have also been sharing sensitive data entered by users. The findings alarmed some privacy experts who reviewed the Journal’s testing.

Facebook is under scrutiny from Washington and European regulators for how it treats the information of users and nonusers alike. It has been fined for allowing now defunct political-data firm Cambridge Analytica illicit access to users’ data and has drawn criticism for giving companies special access to user records well after it said it had walled off that information.

In the case of apps, the Journal’s testing showed that Facebook software collects data from many apps even if no Facebook account is used to log in and if the end user isn’t a Facebook member.

Facebook said some of the data sharing uncovered by the Journal’s testing appeared to violate its business terms, which instruct app developers not to send it “health, financial information or other categories of sensitive information.”

At the heart of the issue is an analytics tool Facebook offers developers, which allows them to see statistics about their users’ activities—and to target those users with Facebook ads. Facebook has denied this of-course.
