Dumbing Down Of America CONFIRMED: New SAT Exams Allow Students To Cheat Their Way To College

Students who take the SAT exam will now be given a secret ‘adversity score.’

SAT exam takers will be given an adversity score between 1 to 100, with a higher score signaling a higher level of adversity.

The adversity score will be determined by 15 different factors, including: The crime rate and poverty rate of the area where the student is from, the household income of the student, and the quality of the student’s high school. Students will also earn a higher adversity score if English isn’t their first language.

The College Board said the adversity score will not consider the race of the student. However, many critics of the adversity score have pointed out that the score seems to use many factors that are heavily correlated with race.

This fall, 150 colleges plan to use the adversity score in their admissions processes.

This new policy has received major backlash from Americans who believe that college admissions should be solely based on academic performance.

China Cancles Trade Talks With US

The latest U.S. actions on trade are preventing negotiations with Beijing from proceeding, China's Commerce Ministry said Thursday.

"If the U.S. would like to keep on negotiating it should, with sincerity, adjust its wrong actions. Only then can talks continue," Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Gao Feng said Thursday in Mandarin, according to a CNBC translation.

He did not mention any U.S. actions specifically, but it's been a tense couple of weeks between the world's two-largest economies. President Donald Trump unexpectedly accused China of reneging on a deal earlier this month and announced that tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods would increase to 25% from 10% on May 10. Beijing retaliated with raising levies on $60 billion worth of U.S. products. In the last two weeks, his administration also put Chinese telecom giant Huawei on a blacklist that prevents it from buying from American companies without U.S. government permission.

Google said Sunday it would cut ties with Huawei in order to comply with the order. But after the U.S. temporarily eased some restrictions on trade for the telecom and smartphone company, Google said Tuesday it plans to work with Huawei over the next 90 days.

"The U.S. ... crackdown on Chinese companies not only seriously damages the normal commercial cooperation between both countries, but it also forms a great threat to the security of the global industrial and supply chain," Gao said. "China is firmly opposed to this. We will closely monitor developments and make adequate preparations."

U.S Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC's Ylan Mui on Wednesday that a trip to Beijing has not been planned. Trump has said he plans to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping in late June at the G-20 meeting in Japan.

When asked Thursday whether Xi would meet Trump then, Gao referred reporters to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

NOT A JOKE: Democrats Want To Ban The Words 'Man' and 'Woman', Outlaw Gender Identity

One of the first things Americans need to understand about Democrats is that virtually every piece of legislation they propose is misnamed.

For instance, Obamacare — officially called “The Affordable Care Act” — made healthcare unaffordable for millions of Americans and far more expensive than it previously was for tens of millions more.

And the recently-passed “Equality Act” is not about ‘equal rights.’ It is actually about creating inequality among Americans by conveying extra rights onto a small subset of people who are already protected under the civil rights laws…at the risk of rights of the vast majority of all other Americans.

Last week, all Democrats in the Dem-controlled House, along with eight Republicans, voted in favor of the Equity Act. By a vote of 236-173, the act, if it passes the Senate and is signed by POTUS Trump (neither of which seems likely), will “broaden the definition of protected classes to include sex, sexual orientation and gender identity,” according to a tweet from Roll Call.

As reported by TownHall, if a person only read the title of the legislation, passage would seem like a shoe-in. But once you dig deeper into the bill, as many Republicans did, you discover:

The legislation would add sexual orientation and gender identity to characteristics protected by the 1964 Civil Rights Act. To Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the bill is “a top priority because equality for the LGBTQ community is a top priority” for the party.

The GOP disagrees, however. The bill will mandate “top-down, government-led discrimination against all Americans who hold a differing view of human sexuality and gender,” Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) said at a press conference on Thursday.

Thus, a vote for the act “is a vote against parents, it’s a vote against women, it’s a vote against doctors, it’s a vote against educators, it’s a vote against children.”

“The Equality Act represents the absolute worst of the radical-left’s pro-infanticide, anti-conscience agenda,” Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) said in a statement. “By amending the definition of ‘sex’ in the Civil Rights Act of 1964, this legislation codifies a fundamental right to an abortion up until the moment of birth. It also ensures that American taxpayers foot the bill for these abortions by effectively eliminating Hyde protections – protections I recently pledged to uphold in a letter to Speaker Pelosi.”

Good! Farage's Brexit Party Set To Destroy The Corrupt UK Political Establishment

Since Nigel Farage officially launched the 'Brexit Party' six weeks during a coming-out party in Coventry, Farage and his allies have ridden widespread frustration with a seemingly ineffectual British political establishment to the top of the polls, attracting waves of defectors from the Tories and Labour.

The most recent polls - taken just days before the vote, which, for the UK, will take place on Thursday - show the Brexit Party is up by double-digits over its nearest rival, the Liberal Democrats. Meanwhile, support for Labour and the Tories has dwindled to single-digit levels.

BREX-EFDD: 37% (+3)
LDEM-ALDE: 19% (+2)
LAB-S&D: 13% (-2)
GREENS-G/EFA: 12% (+1)
CON-ECR: 7% (-2)

+/- 8-17 May 2019

— Europe Elects (@EuropeElects) May 21, 2019

If the Brexit Party succeeds, its candidates will occupy a plurality of the UK's 73 MEP seats. In the European Parliament, they will join a growing group of euroskeptic parties that have pledged to oppose the Brussels agenda at every turn and, where they can, change it entirely.

Ironically, the New York Times offers one of the most apt explanations of how Farage managed to pull this off:

As Brexit chainsaws its way through British politics, dismantling decades-old political allegiances, tearing apart the traditional parties and leaving voters confused, frustrated and angry, the Brexit Party is thriving by offering a simple and hard-edge message.

"People feel completely betrayed, they feel abandoned, they feel even hated and despised by the political class and also by the media," said Martin Daubney, the lifelong Labour voter now standing for the Brexit Party, who used to edit a raunchy men’s magazine before reinventing himself as an anti-pornography advocate. "It feels like a grass-roots political revolution on the streets of Britain right now."

Should the Brexit Party succeed in winning the largest share of the vote this week, it will send an unequivocal message to the dithering Tories: The people want Brexit, regardless of the details. A Brexit Party success could give pro-Leave Tories the ammunition they need to see it through.

British Steel Industry Collapse Threatens 25,000 Jobs

Nearly 5,000 steelworkers’ jobs and another 20,000 in supply industries could be wiped out after Tuesday’s announcement that British Steel is insolvent.

The company, owned by “vulture fund” Greybull Capital, is the second largest steel producer in the UK after Tata. Its main plant is in the town of Scunthorpe in the Northeast of England where steel production goes back 150 years and where more than 3,000 workers are employed. Other jobs are threatened at the company’s plants in Skinningrove, north Yorkshire and at Blaydon, in Gateshead. The firm also has a research and development facility in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

Every job lost will be a tragedy for workers and their families in the areas of the country, long blighted by deindustrialisation, joblessness and low-paid work. Scunthorpe, with a population of just 83,000, is heavily reliant on employment at the plant. Unemployment in North Lincolnshire stands at 4.8 percent and would almost double to 8.4 percent (twice the national average) with the closure of the Scunthorpe plant. Workers at present earn around £36,000 ($45,528), compared to the average wage in Scunthorpe of just over £22,000 ($27,827).

Employees turning up for work on Wednesday were uncertain whether they would still be in work in 24 hours. Those who spoke to the media said they were being kept in the dark about what was happening. A 19-year-old employee expressed the fears of many, “It's going to be terrible for the town, everyone in Scunthorpe has a family member who works here so the effect will be huge.”

One of British Steel’s main suppliers, Hargreaves Services, a logistics firm based in the northeast of England, said that 170 jobs could be impacted if British Steel closes.

The Scunthorpe mill is one of only two integrated steel producers in the UK, the other being Tata’s plant in Port Talbot, South Wales that employs more than 4,000 workers.

Scientists Expose China - NOT The USA - As The Number 1 Biggest Polluter

It's been exactly one year since US scientists reported a mysterious surge in ozone-destroying chemicals, known as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

Banned in 1987 under the globally signed Montreal Protocol, there was only one explanation: somewhere out there, in an unknown location, someone must have gone rogue, setting back progress on the ozone hole by a decade or more.

After much speculation, the whereabouts and magnitude of these harmful emissions has been confirmed in scientific research. As earlier reporting in The New York Times had already suggested, they seem to be coming from the northeast coast of mainland China.

Since the Montreal Protocol was declared a success in 2013, this highly industrial region has continued to emit, whether accidentally or not, CFC-11: the second most abundant chlorofluorocarbon in the atmosphere. Between the periods of 2008-2012 and 2014-2017, in fact, CFC-11 emissions increased here by roughly 110 percent.

"This increase accounts for a substantial fraction (at least 40 to 60 per cent) of the global rise in CFC-11 emissions," an international team of researchers writes in a new report.

"We find no evidence for a significant increase in CFC-11 emissions from any other eastern Asian countries or other regions of the world where there are available data for the detection of regional emissions."

These violations are likely going unreported because even though CFC-11 is illegal, it is also one of the cheapest ways to produce new foam insulation in refrigerators and buildings.

After tracking down documents and international sources, journalists at The New York Times and independent investigators discovered that in some factories in China, illegal CFC use has been slipping through the cracks for years.

The examples given are based in Xingfu, a rural industrial town in China's Shandong province, and incidentally, that is the very same province that the scientists landed on too.

One wonders why China is exempt from the environmental push torwards carbon taxation?

NO! The Economy Is NOT 'Booming', Government Lies, Thousands More Jobs Being Lost

If the U.S. economy is “booming” and very bright days are ahead, then why are many large US corporations laying off thousands of workers?

Layoffs are starting to come fast and furious now, and this is happening even though the government denies the US is in a depression or great recession. Of course many are convinced that we are actually in a recession at this moment. In fact, according to John Williams of shadowstats.com if the government was actually using honest numbers they would show that we have been in a recession for quite some time. But the narrative that the mainstream media keeps feeding us is that the U.S. economy is “doing well” and that the outlook for the future is positive. Well, if that is true then why are big companies laying off so many workers right now?

Let’s start by talking about Ford Motor Company. On Monday, they announced that they will be laying off approximately 7,000 workers…

Ford Motor said Monday that it is laying off about 7,000 managers and other salaried employees, about 10% of its white-collar workforce across the globe, as part of a restructuring plan designed to save the No. 2 automaker $600 million annually.

The cuts, some of which were previously announced by the company, will be completed by August, Ford CEO Jim Hackett said in an email to employees Monday.

Another large firm that is laying off thousands of workers is Nestle…

Nestle SA’s U.S. unit will dismiss about 4,000 workers as it stops delivering frozen pizza and ice cream directly to stores and transitions to a warehouse model that’s becoming an industry standard for Big Food companies looking to trim costs.

And we also recently learned that 3M is planning to get rid of about 2,000 workers…

3M plans to cut 2,000 globally as part of a restructuring due to a slower-than-expected 2019.

The maker of Post-it notes, industrial coatings and ceramics said Thursday that the move is expected to save about $225 million to $250 million a year. The St. Paul Minnesota-based company anticipates a pretax charge of about $150 million, or 20 cents per share, this year.

Did you catch that part about these layoffs being due to “a slower-than-expected 2019”?

THIS Again! Syrian Terrorists Attack Russian Air Base In Major Offensive

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1108

Some 500 Nusra-front militants, accompanied by seven tanks and about 30 pickup trucks armed with mounted heavy machine guns launched three major offensives against government troops in Idlib province on Wednesday, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The counterattack focused on the town of Kafr Nabudah, which was recently captured by the Syrian government.

Militants also launched a missile attack on Russia's Hmeymim air base on Wednesday, but nine of the missiles were shot down, and another 8 didn't reach their target, the ministry added.

Northwest Syria, which runs along Syria's border with Turkey, is home to the last remaining rebel strongholds, including a swath of land dominated by the Al Qaeda-linekd Nusra Front, which has adopted a new name, Tahrir al-Sham, Haaretz reports.

The increase in shelling in the region has led to the displacement of 180,000 people, while the increase in shelling marked the most intense period of fighting between Bashar al-Assad and the rebels

According to RT, more than 150 rebels were killed during the morning offensive. Three tanks were destroyed, while 24 trucks mounted with heavy guns were also destroyed in the fighting.

Disease and Sickness Breaks Out After Illegals Flood US Processing Facility

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1138

U.S. border agents have temporarily stopped taking illegals into the primary facility for processing illegals in South Texas, a day after a 16-year-old diagnosed with the flu at the facility died. In a statement to CBS News late Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said a large number of detainees in its processing center in McAllen, Texas had high fevers and were displaying signs of a flu-related illness.

The agency said it was working to provide medical treatment to all of those who had fevers. To avoid the spread of the illness, the CBP said, intake operations were temporarily suspended at the facility and illegals who would have been brought there will be taken elsewhere until the situation is resolved.

The processing center is a converted warehouse that holds hundreds of parents and children at a time in large, fenced-in pens.

After being diagnosed with the flu on Sunday, Carlos Hernandez Vasquez was transferred to a smaller Border Patrol station, where he was found unresponsive Monday.

CBS News spoke to one of Hernandez's brothers, in New Jersey, who wants to know what happened.

"The hardest part about it all is what happened to him because we never thought this would happen in a place where he's supposed to be in a better place," he told CBS News through a translation.

"Supposed to be in a better place?" Who's telling them to come here one must ask!?

James Comey Joked About Being A Communist Before Joining FBI

James Comey, who would go on to helm the FBI, joked in 2003 that he was a Communist before he joined the Bureau.

In an unearthed 2003 interview with New York Magazine, James Comey, who would go on to helm the FBI a decade later, joked about being a Communist before he joined the Bureau.

The news comes after it was confirmed that the head of Obama’s CIA, John Brennan, admitted to actually voting for a Communist candidate in 1976, yet somehow climbed the ranks within the same US intelligence community that had spent decades fighting that very ideology.

“In college, I was left of center,” Comey told New York Magazine, and through a gradual process I found myself more comfortable with a lot of the ideas and approaches the Republicans were using.” He voted for Carter in 1980, but in ’84, “I voted for Reagan—I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically. Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.”

Of note, Comey’s wife and four daughters were all giant Hillary Clinton supporters who wanted her to win “really badly.”

WTF?! Former FBI Director James Comey started out as a Communist like CIA Director John Brennan in the 1970s: "I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now," Comey told New York Magazine in 2003https://t.co/nwJyyKOnjZ

— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) May 16, 2019

“Former CIA Director John Brennan […] admitted in 2016 to voting Communist in the 1970s,” that outlet pointed out. Sure enough, CNN broke that story two months before the presidential election.

“I voted for the Communist Party candidate,” Brennan admitted during a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference. He revealed that during his 1980 polygraph test for admission to the CIA, he momentarily thought about covering up this fact before ultimately telling the truth to the examiner.

Conservative Tribune report:
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/bombshell-comey-communist/

That Communist candidate was Gus Hall, a radical leftist who supported the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and ran for president four times.

Since Brennan admitted his Communist sympathies during his 1980 polygraph but was too young to vote in 1972, it’s nearly certain that he voted for the avowed Communist candidate in 1976, just four years before joining the CIA.

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: Terror in Europe Has Increased 725 Percent Since Open Border Policies

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION

Islamic terror attacks in Europe have increased a staggering 725 per cent between 2007 and 2017, a new report by CSIS has found.

CSIS, a national security think tank, looked at both successful and unsuccessful attacks. Their findings highlight the fact that Islamic extremism remains the biggest terror threat to the west.

Islamic extremist attacks in Europe increased 725% between 2007 and 2017. Read the @CSIS_Threats report on European terrorism: https://t.co/BaIUW98rFd pic.twitter.com/1afnxxAA4w

— CSIS (@CSIS) May 19, 2019

Summit.news reports:
https://summit.news/2019/05/20/new-report-finds-islamic-terrorism-in-europe-has-increased-by-725-per-cent/

The numbers also show that 2017 saw the highest number of Islamic terror attacks in modern European history.

“Obviously nothing to do with mass migration,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. in response to the report.

However, the report also highlights right-wing terror, asserting that 2017 saw the highest number of far-right attacks in Europe since 1994.

“Despite the growing anti-immigrant rhetoric from the far-right, the report found that terrorist attacks rarely involve newly-arrived refugees or asylum seekers,” states the report.

Fantastic; So that means it’s mostly the supposedly “integrated” migrants who are carrying out the attacks?

The assertion that newly arrived migrants are rarely involved in terror attacks is also rendered meaningless by simple math.

Given that there are far more migrants already in European countries than new arrivals, obviously the greater number of existing migrants are going to responsible for the vast number of terror attacks.

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: Mob of Somali 'Migrants' Attack Minneapolis Metro Riders with Hammers

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1138

This will not make mainstream media and is already in the process of being expunged

8 - 10 Somali teens attacked Minneapolis Metro riders with hammers and crowbars A mob of eight to 10 males wielding hammers descended upon bystanders at the East Bank Light Rail station on Friday night injuring several, according to recorded police dispatch audio.

https://alphanewsmn.com/audio-mob-with-hammers-descends-on-minneapolis-east-bank-lrt-patrons/

The incident was apparently reported to 911 just before 10 p.m. on Friday according to the audio and other social media police scanner reports. A 9:48 p.m. Facebook post on 2nd Precinct Minneapolis Crime Watch page said that University of Minnesota (U of M) police were requesting assistance from Minneapolis police (MPD) and Metro Transit police for "a group of 8-10 males chasing people with hammers" and that some people were injured. A Facebook post a minute later on Minneapolis Scanner page said that the three police departments were responding to "multiple [911] calls" about "10-12 Somali teen males armed with hammers chasing people, " also with "several injuries reported." Both Facebook pages regularly post summaries of police scanner audio.

A person who claimed on social media to have been at the station when the incident occurred said that the group of males had "hammers and bars, " and that they seemed to be "attacking anyone who looked like they had money or were white." The witness, who said he isn't white, said he didn't want to "[take] on a bunch of dudes with blunt objects, " and that he "hurried an older white lady away" and they walked a few blocks to catch a bus.

My comment: Let's see this make news. It won't. And the story SHOULD BE: Ungrateful "refugees" with ZERO class living on welfare attacked people in a country that "saved them" because the people who saved them were white, and because they were white, they did not need to be thanked after giving the somalis their free handout. FACT: You can throw a wild chimpanzee it's favorite treat and in the next second, if you are not careful and it gets ahold of you, it will rip your arm off. How much different from that was this incident in Minnesota? DEPORT THEM ALL.

Iran Develops Firewall Against US-Israeli Anti-industrial Stuxnet Glow Worm

Iran says has developed an indigenous firewall securing its sensitive industrial facilities against Stuxnet, a cyber weapon widely believed to be made by the US and Israel and used in the past to target the Islamic Republic’s nuclear energy program.

Minister of Information and Communications Technology Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi announced the development on his Instagram page on Thursday.

The firewall, he said, has been designed and developed by young Iranian scientists, and successfully tested on industrial automation systems.

The firewall “practically neutralizes industrial [acts of] sabotage, such as [those potentially launched by] Stuxnet, in electrical grids and suchlike,” he wrote, adding, “By relying on [our] youths, we will turn threats into opportunities.”

The Washington Post reported in June 2012 that the US National Security Agency (NSA), its spy service CIA, and Israel’s military had worked together to launch Stuxnet against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

In late 2015, Iran's then Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hossein Jaberi-Ansari, called the attacks that came in 2011 “illegal,” saying Tehran had never responded with “reciprocal cyber attacks.”

In November 2016, Iran’s top nuclear official said the cyber attack had worked against the US and Israel’s intended objectives and instead helped improve the Islamic Republic’s readiness against such acts of sabotage.

Illinois Now Faces Depopulation Crisis, Too Many Residents Leaving and Low Birth Rates

A Centers for Disease Control report on the drop in births nationally has experts worried about its impact on the country’s fiscal and economic situation. Fewer young people could mean a shrinking population and a workforce too small to support the country’s ever-growing number of retirees.

If that’s a problem nationally, then it’s a full-on crisis in Illinois. According to separate U.S. Census data analyzed recently by Wirepoints, Illinois’ birth rate has fallen faster than the national average since the turn of the century. And that’s a real issue given the state’s massive pension debts and its declining population.

Barring structural pension reforms, Illinois will be trapped in a downward spiral where growing government debts fall on fewer and fewer people.

According to the CDC, the number of U.S. births nationally declined to a 32-year low in 2018. The reasons for that were varied; teens and hispanic women are having less children while the increase for older women (ages 40-44) has slowed, among other factors. Births in the U.S. have fallen in 10 of the last 11 years.

State-level data from the U.S. Census Bureau confirms that negative birth trend and shows just how worse off Illinois is compared to other states.

It also captures an additional factor on state births the national average doesn’t: the potential effects of domestic migration. As more millennials move out of Illinois, there’s likely to be a negative impact on births. Illinois lost a net of 107,000 millennials and their dependents to other states between 2012 and 2016, according to data from the Internal Revenue Service. And a Brookings Institution report found Illinois and West Virginia were the only two states in the nation to lose millennials between 2010 and 2015.

Compared to 2001, Illinois births have dropped 20 percent. Wirepoints covered that drop in a recent study: Illinois’ demographic collapse: fewer immigrants, fewer babies and fleeing residents.

Illinois’ drop in births has been more dramatic than in most states in the nation. In 2001, the state’s births per 1,000 residents put Illinois 12th-best in the nation. But by 2018, the state’s ranking had fallen to 30th.

In contrast, most of Illinois neighboring states improved their birth rankings over the 2001-2018 period.

Illinois’ drop in births, combined with a 50 percent drop in international immigration and record domestic outmigration, has resulted in a shrinking Illinois population five years in a row.

Communistfornia Threatens Car Ban!

California might ban gasoline-powered cars if the federal government goes ahead with a plan to relax emission and fuel economy standards, Bloomberg reports, citing the chair of the Communist Air Resources Board.

“CARB will be exploring ways to ensure communities get the reductions of air pollution they so desperately need to keep the air clean and breathable -- and continue to fight climate change,” Mary Nichols said.

“That might mean, for example, tougher requirements for low-carbon fuels, looking at tighter health-protective regulations on California refineries, doubling down on our enforcement efforts on mobile and stationary sources -- and might lead to an outright ban on internal combustion engines.”

The fight over fuel economy standards has been going on since the Trump administration said it planned to freeze the standard at 2020 levels and is part of a wider confrontation between the state and the federal administration that has since Trump’s inauguration seen California file as many as 49 lawsuits against the federal government. Of these, almost half, or 24, are against policies by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The situation is a little ironic for California. It is the state with the strictest emission rules and also the state where most of the nation’s electric vehicles are sold. It is, however, at the same time the state with the most total car sales and its pollution levels are among the highest.

In fact, the state is home to eight of the ten most polluted cities in the United States. And emissions from transport are on the rise.

Banning gasoline cars in the country’s largest car market does not sound like the most rational approach to tackling this rising pollution. It sounds more like a tit for tat approach to a conflict that has been unfolding since Donald Trump entered the White House. It seems, by the way, that California is getting as good as it is giving: the federal government earlier this week pulled out funding to the tune of US$929 million for the construction of a high-speed railway claiming California had failed to make any real progress on the project since the agreement for it was inked back in 2010.

Hundreds Of Respected Scientists Sound The Alarm About Health Effects As 5G Networks Go Up Nationwide

5G MASS MURDER RELATED: >>>/endpol/1134

Even though many in the scientific community are loudly warning about the potential health effects that 5G technology could have on the general population, Verizon and AT&T are starting to put up their 5G networks in major cities all across the nation. Today, the total number of cell phones exceeds the entire population of the world, and the big cell phone companies are making a crazy amount of money providing service to all of those phones.

President Trump claimed that 5G networks will be up to 100 times faster than the current 4G networks that we are using right now…

But in order to achieve such vastly 'superior' performance, 5G networks will use technology that is completely different from 4G networks.

5G waves are “ultra high frequency” and “ultra high intensity”, but they are also easily absorbed by objects such as buildings and trees. So although cell towers will be much, much smaller, but they will also have to be much, much closer together than before. According to CBS News, it is estimated that the big cell phone companies will be putting up at least 300,000 of these small towers, and it has been projected that it will cost hundreds of billions of dollars to fully set up the 5G network nationwide.

Needless to say, there is a tremendous amount of money at stake, and the big cell phone companies are trying very hard to assure everyone that 5G technology is completely safe.

Today, there is a growing body of scientific evidence that indicates that the electromagnetic radiation that we are constantly being bombarded with is not good for us. Hundreds of scientists that are engaged in research in this area have signed the “International EMF Scientist Appeal”, and this is how that document begins…

"We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices. These include–but are not limited to–radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitting devices, such as cellular and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors as well as electric devices and infra-structures used in the delivery of electricity that generate extremely-low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF)."

In the next paragraph, we are told that “cancer risk”, “genetic damages”, “functional changes of the reproductive system”, and “neurological disorders” are some of the health risks that have been discovered by the scientific research that has been conducted so far…

"Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life."

Because the 5G towers are going to be so powerful and so close together, it will essentially be like living in a closed radiation chamber 24 hours a day.

Over in Israel, one scientist has discovered that the surface of the human body actually draws in 5G radiation “like an antenna”…

What’s further disturbing about 5G radiation is how the human body responds to and processes it. Dr. Ben-Ishai from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem discovered as part of a recent investigation that human skin acts as a type of receptor for 5G radiation, drawing it in like an antenna.

“This kind of technology, which is in many of our homes, actually interacts with human skin and eyes,” writes Arjun Walia for Collective Evolution about the study.

African Terrorists In Black Vests Invade France With Vows To Takeover Small Nation

THE DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION OF EUROPE CONTINUES!

Yesterday, hundreds of undocumented migrants took control of Terminal 2 of the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris France. Approximately 500 migrants seized the terminal.

“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” one person can be heard yelling into a loudspeaker.

The protest was organized by the migrant support group “La Chapelle Debout,” which said their members call themselves “Black Vests.”

The group comes amid the country’s months-long “Yellow Vests movement” over tax reforms; French citizens are required to carry yellow vests in their vehicles for emergencies.

#Breaking: Just in - Reports that undocumented immigrants are protesting in the Charles de Gaulle Airport in #Paris right now and won't let people board their flights until they meet and talk with with the prime minister Édouard Philippe of #France, Riot CRS police on the scene. pic.twitter.com/fextoWCs6S

— Sotiri Dimpinoudis (@sotiridi) May 19, 2019

The organized group released an official statement and warned this will not be the last effort such as this.

In an official statement, the group asked to meet with Prime Minister Edouard Philippe over the country’s asylum policy and the leaders of Air France. They demanded that the airline “stop any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations.”

Later Sunday, an Air France delegation met with the group, a member told local newspaper Le Parisien.

A migrant who took part in the protest warned it wouldn’t be the last.

“We have targeted Air France, and other actions will follow,” he told the paper.

The migrants are reported to have refused to allow passengers to board their planes until their demands were met. They were held back by riot police but actually got a meeting with a representatie of Air France.

What kind of precedent does this set? One tweet even suggests “Prime Minister Édouard Philippe caved into their demands and gave them all permanent legal status, though that hasn’t been confirmed.”

Currently there are no reports of arrests.

France does not belong to the French anymore, indeed.

China Threatens To Ban Rare-Earth Exports To US Over Trade War

Back in April of 2018, when the trade war with China was still in its early stages, we explained that among the five "nuclear" options Beijing has to retaliate against the US, one was the block of rare-earth exports to the US, potentially crippling countless US supply chains that rely on these rare commodities, and forcing painful and costly delays in US production as alternative supply pathways had to be implemented.

As a result, for many months China watchers expected Beijing to respond to Trump's tariff hikes by blocking the exports of one or more rare-earths, although fast forwarding one year later this still hasn't happened. But that doesn't mean it won't happen, and overnight President Xi Jinping’s visit to a rare earths facility fueled speculation that the strategic materials will soon be weaponized in China’s tit-for-tat war the US.

As Bloomberg reported overnight, shares in JL MAG Rare-Earth surged by the daily limit on Monday after Xinhua said the Chinese president had stopped by the company in Jiangxi, a scripted move designed to telegraph what China could do next.

The reason for the dramatic market response is that the presidential visit flags policy priorities, and "rare earths have featured in the escalating trade spat between the U.S. and China." Specifically, as Bloomberg notes, China raised tariffs to 25% from 10% on American imports, while the U.S. excluded rare earths from its own list of prospective tariffs on roughly $300 billion worth of Chinese goods to be targeted in the next wave of measures. And just in case the White House missed the message, Xi was accompanied on the trip to JL MAG by Liu He, the vice premier who has led the Chinese side in the trade negotiations.

Why does China have a clear advantage in this area? Simple: the U.S. relies on China, the dominant global supplier, for about 80% of its rare earths imports.

The visit “sends a warning signal to the U.S. that China may use rare earths as a retaliation measure as the trade war heats up,” said Pacific Securities analyst Yang Kunhe. That could include curbs on rare earth exports to the U.S., he said.

Good! White House Launches Online Tool To Report Vicious Big Tech Censorship

President Trump has launched a new tool designed to fight back against online censorship by Big Tech companies.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/techbias (currently down?)

The online tool was launched by the White House on Wednesday and allows Americans to report instances where they have been censored on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. The reports go directly to the Trump administration for review.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the administration announced the tool, declaring it is “fighting for free speech.”

“No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!” the White House said in a tweet.

The post from the White House triggered an avalanche of responses from ordinary Americans who reported their own experiences of heavy-handed censorship by Big Tech.

Thousands of people reported they were being actively banned, suspended or “shadowbanned” for holding non-mainstream views.

“My twitter follower number reached just over 6000 followers in 2017.. then the Shadowban, Throttling, and follower purge kicked in,” one person claimed.

“Have been permanently banned from FB due to my supporting President Trump,” another revealed.

Nypost.com reports:
https://nypost.com/2019/05/15/white-house-launches-online-tool-to-fight-social-media-censorship/

The tool prompts users to answer a series of questions, including what social media platform censored them because of political bias.

“The White House wants to hear from all Americans – regardless of their political leanings – if they have been impacted by bias on social media platforms,” Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere said of the program.

The reporting tool was launched as Trump and other Republicans have raised concerns about censorship by social media platforms.

Good! Monstanto-Bayer Loses THIRD Lawsuit Over Cancerous Roundup Deaths, Stocks Crashing

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1136

Monsanto was acquired last June by Bayer, a chemical corporation whose chairperson was found guilty of crimes against humanity during the post-Nazi-era Nuremberg trials.

In the decades that followed, Bayer (formerly IG Farben) found a way to turn its deadly chemical weapons into pesticides, herbicides, chemotherapy drugs and pharmaceuticals. Its acquisition of Monsanto cemented Bayer’s dominance in the agriculture sector, allowing the company to earn tens of billions of dollars a year by poisoning the global food supply with a deadly, cancer-causing chemical known as glyphosate — sold as “Roundup” under the Monsanto brand name.

Now, a third court case has ruled that Monsanto’s toxic weed killer caused cancer among those who used it. In this case, a California jury has returned an astonishing $2 billion award for the plaintiffs who say Roundup caused their cancers. “Bayer AG was ordered to pay more than $2 billion in damages to a California couple that claimed they got cancer as a result of using its Roundup weedkiller for about three decades,” reports Bloomberg.com.

It’s one of the largest jury awards ever recorded in the history of humanity, and it shows that Bayer is now facing “financial annihilation” because there are over 13,000 additional lawsuits pending.

If 10,000 lawsuits each result in a jury award of just $100 million — the low side of awards so far — this would cost Bayer $1 trillion, plunging the evil corporation into financial ruin.

Since acquiring Monsanto, Bayer’s share price has plunged more than 40 percent, meaning the chemical giant has already lost tens of billions of dollars in market capitalization. Since Bayer inherited all of Monsanto’s liabilities when it acquired the company — and because Roundup has been in use by the public for over three decades — Bayer could face at least another decade of lawsuits that add up to multiple trillions of dollars in damages.

“The company has got to come to the table with a viable plan to resolve these cases, or the losses are going to mount,” attorney Micah Dortch told Bloomberg.com. Dortch is part of a law firm that has filed many cases against Monsanto / Bayer, claiming damage from glyphosate exposure. “This outcome should make Monsanto realize the seriousness of these claims and how a jury perceives the evidence.”

Ironically, Monsanto isn’t just toxic to the human food supply and the environment at large; it’s also toxic to Bayer’s shareholders. Then again, if they’re invested in evil corporations, they probably deserve to lose their investments anyway.

Former Iowa City paraeducator pleaded guilty to lascivious acts with child

A former Iowa City paraeducator pleaded guilty to two felony offenses Tuesday in a plea deal with the state after being charged with sexually abusing a child last year.
Scott Suhr of 2502 E. Court St., worked briefly in Iowa City schools before he was arrested on April 21, 2018.
At a hearing this week, Suhr pleaded guilty to two counts of lascivious acts with a child.
Court documents show when he was arrested, he was charged with two counts of sexual abuse in the second degree, two counts of lascivious acts with a child, two counts of incest and one count of child endangerment.
Under the plea deal, the state agrees to dismiss the other charges, suspended sentences, five years' probation and a minimum fine of $750,000, according to court documents.
A conviction for second-degree sex abuse carries a maximum sentence of up to 25 years. It's not clear what the outcome will be for Suhr's guilty plea to lesser charges.
A sentencing date was scheduled for June 24, 2019, at the Johnson County Courthouse.
According to a complaint, Suhr engaged in sex acts with a child under the age of 12 on two different occasions between 2016 and 2018.

Primitive Apes! Migrant Repays Family Who Sheltered Him by Stabbing Their Child

A migrant repaid a German family that offered him shelter by allegedly stabbing their 11-year-old child while repeatedly shouting “die, die, die!” according to German reports.

HLN (as translated by Google) reports: Refugee Abdulrahman M. (26) was kindly welcomed at the home of the German Tina K. (34). Yet he stabbed her son Paul (11) with a bread knife on July 25, 2018. The child was seriously injured and survived […] This week, the asylum seeker from Eritrea has to appear before the court of Passau (Bavaria) for attempted murder.

After his flight from Eritrea, Abdulrahman M. lived with other refugees in a multi-family home in Vilshofen. Tina K. (34) lived with her husband and two sons in the same house and took care of the refugees, German media write including Die Welt and Süddeutsche Zeitung.

According to the prosecutor, Abdulrahman M. lured his assistant’s son into ambush in the parental home. He was actually aiming at Paul’s mother, but she was shopping with the other refugees at the time.

The asylum seeker asked the boy where his mother was and pushed him into the living room. There he knocked him down and brought out a bread knife that he had kept hidden until then. M. would have called “die, die” when he stabbed the boy. Paul reacted fearlessly and defended himself during the knife attack.

The family dog ​​- a terrier – eventually saved his life. He bit the attacker. Then Paul was able to free himself and run out of the house. M. did not stop the chase until the boy could stop a car along the road. Paul was seriously injured in the neck and arms and legs. He had to undergo emergency surgery. He had a cut of 15 centimeters [6 inches] on the neck.

Ten months after the facts, the boy still has serious psychological problems and concentration problems, his father said. He has been going back to school for a few weeks after being admitted to a specialized clinic for months.

Despotic German Bureaucrats Ban Boycotts Against Israel

Another move to restrict consumer rights to boycott, undermining consumer choice. This ban arrogantly defies the principles of a free market system.

Germany yesterday voted to define the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic, becoming the first major European parliament to do so.

The German parliament – known as the Bundestag – this afternoon voted to accept a motion defining BDS as anti-Semitic. The motion, “Resist the BDS Movement – Fighting Antisemitism,” was sponsored by the Bundestag’s two largest parties – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian-Democratic Union and the Social Democrat party – as well as the Green Party and the Free Democratic Party.

The text of the motion stated that “the German Bundestag is unwavering in its commitment to condemn and combat anti-Semitism in all its forms,” stressing it will oppose “anyone who defames people because of their Jewish identity […] questions the right of the Jewish and democratic state of Israel to exist or Israel’s right to defend itself.”

On the BDS movement specifically, the motion claimed that “the arguments, patterns and methods of the BDS movement are anti-Semitic”. As evidence of this, the motion argued that BDS’ “don’t buy” stickers – which aim to identify products of Israeli origin so consumers can refrain from purchasing them – “arouse associations [with] the Nazi slogan ‘Don’t buy from Jews’” and are “reminiscent of the most horrific phase in German history”.

The move could also pave the way for other groups to be labelled anti-Semitic for their criticism of Israel. By arguing that “the state of Israel can also be understood as a Jewish collective,” the passing of the motion will further narrow the space for criticism of Israel’s government and its policies by conflating this with anti-Semitic rhetoric.

The Bundestag also voted today on two other anti-BDS resolutions: the first, which was submitted by the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, called on the German government to outlaw the BDS altogether; meanwhile the second, submitted by the left-wing party Die Linke, called on the government to condemn “anti-Semitism within” the BDS movement.

BOOM! Bayer-Monsanto Now Faces Criminal Investigation And OVER 10,000 Lawsuits For Major Crimes

MONSANTO MEGADEATH RELATED: >>>/endpol/1136

For over a decade, Monsanto has been engaged in building and maintapining “hit lists” of journalists, lawmakers and regulators to be taken out if they opposed the evil agenda of GMOs and toxic glyphosate weed killer chemicals that now inundate the world food supply. Any influential person who opposed the Monsanto agenda was subjected to one or more of the following:

Attempted bribery
Death threats and intimidation
Character assassination through well-funded “negative P.R.” campaigns
Defamation via coordinated Wikipedia attacks, run by Monsanto operatives
Career destruction, such as getting scientists blacklisted from science journals
Being doxxed, having their home addresses publicized and their families and co-workers threatened

In other words, Monsanto has been running a “black ops” division for over ten years, spending perhaps $100 million or more on efforts to silence, destroy or assassinate anyone who interfered with the agricultural giant’s market dominance.

Now, the criminal mafia activity that Monsanto has carried out for years is finally being exposed as law enforcement closes in on the crimes of this evil agricultural giant now owned by Bayer, a corporation that appears to be making an effort to “clean house” and end the Monsanto crimes that targeted journalists, lawmakers and regulators with intimidation and bribery campaigns.

“French prosecutors said on Friday they had opened an inquiry after newspaper Le Monde filed a complaint alleging that Monsanto – acquired by Bayer for $63 billion last year – had kept a file of 200 names, including journalists and lawmakers in hopes of influencing positions on pesticides,” reports Reuters.

https://web.archive.org/web/20190517225637/https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-05-15-bayer-discovers-black-ops-monsanto-internal-investigation-law-enforcement-criminal-charges.html

The $2 billion jury award against Monsanto that was just handed down by a California jury has been widely reported by the very same media that, for years, blacklisted any criticism of Monsanto, GMOs or glyphosate herbicide.

They did that because Monsanto ran a “black ops” division that bribed and threatened journalists across the country while keeping a “hit list” of which journalists to pay off or threaten with violence. Bayer has now become aware of this “black ops” division of Monsanto and has publicly apologized for its operation. In a public apology message posted on its website, Bayer also says it has shut down the operation and cut ties with the black ops service providers, which we know included actual corporate-funded “death squads” that targeted journalists, lawmakers and regulators.

With the black ops division shut down, U.S. journalists are no longer threatened with being killed by Monsanto for running news that’s critical of the corporation. This is one reason why negative news about the Roundup / glyphosate court cases is receiving so much coverage now.

With the American public now watching all this coverage and learning about the links between glyphosate exposure and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (a form of cancer), Bayer is likely to be hit with a new wave of lawsuits due to the “snowball effect” of increased media coverage in the United States. Potentially tens of thousands of people who have been diagnosed with NHL cancer are suddenly realizing they were exposed to glyphosate, too. No doubt many of them are finding law firms to pursue legal action against Bayer.

By our estimates, Bayer is currently being hit with 20 – 30 new lawsuits each business day, adding up to hundreds of new lawsuits a month and thousands each year. With Roundup / glyphosate still being sold at retail stores across America, glyphosate exposure will continue to cause cancers among potentially millions of people, many of whom will no doubt end up filing suit against Bayer.

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION! DHS AND ICE NOW FLOODING UNITED STATES WITH ILLEGAL ALIENS!

HELL BENT ON DESTROYING AMERICA, the Department of Homeland 'Security' (DHS) has released about 9,000 illegal invaders into the interior of the United States over the last eight days, federal data confirms this treason.

Catch and release totals obtained by Breitbart News confirm that between May 6 through May 13, roughly 9,000 border crossers and illegal aliens were released into a variety of American communities by DHS. This indicates that at least 1,100 illegal invaders have been released into the country every day in the past week.

Today, there are anywhere between 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the country — the majority of which are concentrated in states like California, New York, Florida, Texas, and Illinois. And they breed like rabbits.

Syria Air Defenses Intercept Several Israeli Projectiles

The Syrian army said that its air defense system downed several projectiles fired from Israeli-occupied territories on Friday.

According to Syria’s official news agency SANA the Israeli aerial aggression occurred on Friday night.

“Our air defense systems intercepted luminous objects coming from the occupied territories (Israel) and downed several of them,” SANA said quoting a regime military source.

Haaretz reports:
https://www.haaretz.com/middle-east-news/syria/syria-says-air-defenses-intercept-projectiles-coming-from-israel-1.7252768

The Syrian Arab News Agency, Syria’s state news agency, quoted a Syrian military source who said that the air defense system was activated against missiles fired at western Damascus from the direction of Quneitra, in the Golan Heights, within Israeli territory. A number of missiles were intercepted.

The state television channel showed footage of the night sky with a point of light firing up into it and the sound of shooting. It did not immediately report casualties or material damage.

Residents in Damascus said they heard several loud blasts shortly before the television news bulletin that reported the incident.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor affiliated with the Syrian opposition, reported that three explosions were heard in southern and southwestern Damascus. According to the report, the areas that were targeted have an Iranian military and Hezbollah presence.

Other reports associated with the opposition say that the strikes were carried out from Lebanese airspace.

British Army Major General Christopher Ghika not following the script

An awkward public exchange unfolded between the US military and its closest allied military coalition force during a Pentagon press conference on Tuesday wherein a top British commander in charge of anti-ISIS coalition forces rebuked White House claims on the heightened Iran threat.

No – there’s been no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria,” British Army Maj. Gen. Christopher Ghika, a deputy head of the US-led coalition, asserted confidently in a videolink briefing from Baghdad to the Pentagon in response to a CNN question. “We’re aware of that presence, clearly. And we monitor them along with a whole range of others because that’s the environment we’re in. We are monitoring the Shia militia groups. I think you’re referring to carefully and if the threat level seems to go up then we’ll raise our force protection measures accordingly.

The US statement went so far as to imply the British general didn't have a grasp of troop readiness and the state of alert of the very soldiers under his command. And further, it's saying something when you've even lost The Guardian, which has over the past years sought to crush any level of dissent or skepticism of the western mainstream narrative on Syria. The Guardian noted:
The remarkable comments heightened concerns that fabricated or exaggerated intelligence may be being used by administration hawks led by the national security adviser, John Bolton, to further the case for war against Iran, in a manner reminiscent of the buildup to the Iraq invasion.

The incredible public clash among allies came as the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group is en route to the Persian Gulf, along with a B-52 bomber group monitoring the air from Qatar, and new Patriot missile batteries. Also overnight the State Department ordered the immediate evacuation of all non-essential personnel from the US embassy in over unspecified Iranian threats. Washington and Tehran have recently exchanged threats of direct conflict while jostling to assert control over the vital Strait of Hormuz narrow oil shipping passage, which has further left global oil markets on edge and rattled. The military build-up is claimed to be in response to intelligence the White House says confirms that US troops face imminent threat of attack by Iran and its regional proxy forces in places like Iraq, Syria, and the gulf.

Good! Brave President Duterte To Grant Citizens Free Guns To Fight Crime

Looks like Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte is more American than the yuppies dwelling in many leftist-run cities across the US! Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to give free guns to certain members of the public to help fight drug dealers and corruption in the country, something our Founding Fathers would have recommended him do.

This past week Duterte announced he was considering handing out 42,000 guns to community leaders who would help him fulfil his promise of eradicating corruption and crime in the Philippines.

The New York Post reports:
https://web.archive.org/web/20190514174433/https://nypost.com/2018/06/15/duterte-wants-to-give-the-public-42000-free-guns/

The Philippines has vowed to give free guns to members of the public — so long as they promise to use them to fight drugs and crime.

President Rodrigo Duterte said he’s considering arming 42,000 community leaders, known as barangay captains, after consulting with the police and intelligence agency.

Martin Dino, the interior department undersecretary responsible for barangays, said handguns would be provided for free, or private purchases subsidized, but only for those not involved in illegal drugs.

Dino said: “The condition is that the barangay captain should fight drugs and crime. If he is conniving with criminals, he could be the one shot.”

Duterte has repeatedly said thousands of community officials were involved in the trade, without elaborating.

Alabama Votes To BAN All Abortions, Doctors Face Life In Prison If They Abort Babies

ALABAMA lawmakers last night passed a near-total ban on abortions - including in cases of rape and incest while promising to jail doctors for LIFE who carry out the procedures.

State governor Kay Ivey, a Republican, will make the final decision on whether to enact the controversial law after local senators voted in favour by 25 to six.

If it's signed off, the new law will make it a felony for a doctor to perform an abortion at any stage of pregnancy - punishable by up to 99 years in jail.

The only exception would be when the woman’s health is at serious risk.

The historic legislation is designed to go against the US Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalised abortion nationally.

This means it will likely be challenged in the courts - but if backed by the current conservative-led US Supreme court, could see abortions banned across America.

Senators in the Republican-led chamber rejected an attempt to add an exception for rape and incest - even of underage children - at the vote in Montgomery, Alabama, on Tuesday.

Democratic Sen. Bobby Singleton said after the amendment was rejected: "You don’t care anything about babies having babies in this state, being raped and incest.

“You just aborted the state of Alabama with your rhetoric with this bill."

The bill's sponsor, Republican Terri Collins, said she expects Gov Ivey to sign the ban into law.

Ivey has not publicly commented on what she’ll do - but the large margin in favour of the bill means any veto she might bring in to block it could be easily overturned.

Republican Sen. Clyde Chambliss said in a statement after the bill’s passage: “Roe v. Wade has ended the lives of millions of children."

Election Meddling! Facebook Gags Italian Populists Two Weeks Before EU Elections

Alternatives To State-run Social Media: https://archive.fo/xXXOY

Facebook has banned 23 major Italian pro-populist pages with a combined 2.5 million followers two weeks before the European elections, according to Italy's La Stampa.

The majority of the bans were for supporters of the current coalition government; La Lega (The League), headed by Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, and the 5-star movement, M5S, led by Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio. Among them, the most popular Facebook page for La Lega was taken down, right as polls reveal massive support for the party.

Facebook claims that the sites were spreading "fake news", "hate speech," and "divisive content" about migrant invasions, toxins in vaccines and Jews, after left-wing "human rights" and environmentalist-government organization Avaaz issued a report on "inauthentic behavior" over Italian Facebook networks.

"We have also taken action against some pages that have repeatedly spread [the truth], We will take further measures if we find other violations," added Facebook.

In one example, some of the Facebook pages were sharing a video depicting migrants smashing a car, which was actually an amateur recording of a scene being filmed for an Italian drama, Mediterranea.

In its report, which was presented to Facebook on May 3, Avaaz said it had identified 14 Italian networks on Facebook comprising 104 pages and six groups, with a total reach of 18.2 million followers.

This week, Facebook took punitive action against 23 pages in these networks, with a total of 2.46 million followers and 2.44 million interactions over the last three months.

Facebook has also reportedly “weakened” pages that spread content with allegedly false news, presumably making them less visible to Facebook users.

Italian daily La Repubblica reports that on May 2, Facebook opened a "war room" in Dublin in order to monitor the European elections full time - with 40 teams of engineers, researchers, scientists, threat specialists and experts for each country. Overall, 500 people are working on the elections, while being assisted by 21 "fact checkers" across 14 different languages.

Coming to a 2020 election near you...

Power Through Ignorance: A Detestable jewish Scheme

One of the most nefarious uses the jews make of their influence over White societies is to enforce an unrelenting ignorance upon us. An ignorance of [your specific] White racial history is a critical cornerstone that supports the bleak edifice of jewish power. Perhaps even more important to the continuation of the Hebraic hegemony is keeping the White race[s] blind to the crimes committed by jews against our race[s], and how glaringly, gallingly repetitive those crimes have been throughout history. We are forced to learn about other races and their alien cultures, but only in the most superficial and carefully sanitized ways. It is no coincidence that kosher propagandists masquerading as educators present non-White history and culture in the most beneficent light possible, intentionally manipulating the minds of the unwary and gullible. The atrocious behaviors of the non-White races are conveniently omitted; and when those behaviors are too horrific to be ignored, they are endlessly excused. The most conspicuous absence from the mandatory alien culture indoctrination is any mention of jews and their habitual promotion of indolence, reckless degeneracy, fraud-based economics, and nation-wrecking.

Our failure to learn from the past, in no small part because of the complete kosher corruption of our educational institutions, has left the vast majority of White people ill-equipped to resist the temptations offered by the rootless, disingenuous jew: hedonism, perversion, and instant gratification – the cost of which is the very future existence of our race[s]. If we are ever to confront the jewish menace that is ruining our homelands and eradicating our race[s], a larger number of White people must become aware of the problem. There are many White people who recognize pieces of the problem: from wages that grow more worthless each day because of runaway price increases, to being unable to afford a family, to mind-numbing “transactional” jobs that create no real value, to the endless flood of sullen, rapacious aliens into our formerly safe and prosperous communities. Some White people merely have a vague feeling of unease, as if they are now foreigners in the towns of their birth. It is our duty to help these White people see the bigger picture, and to see how the symptoms they have noticed (and will often openly discuss) are caused by a single malady – an infestation of jewish parasites that are working tirelessly to kill their host. The consistency with which the jews wreck nations, the commonality in their malevolent methods wherever they ply their anti-White subversion and degeneracy, is made plain by the records left to us by our predecessors in the struggle against our implacable jewish enemies. We have truth and the historical record on our side, and we must sound them as an alarm for the slumbering Whites. We must awaken our people to the jewish-orchestrated White genocide.

The following is an essay entitled “We Demand” by Joseph Goebbels, and originally published in the periodical Der Angriff on July 25, 1927. Although Goebbels writes specifically about Germany, the conditions he describes are an accurate depiction of every White country today:

The German people is an enslaved people. Under international law, it is lower than the worst Negro colony in the Congo. One has taken all sovereign rights from us. We are just good enough that international capital allows us to fill its money sacks with interest payments. That and only that is the result of a centuries-long history of heroism. Have we deserved it? No, and no again! Therefore we demand that a struggle against this condition of shame and misery begin, and that the men in whose hands we put our fate must use every means to break the chains of slavery. (continued)

Good! Kavanaugh Rules Public Can Sue Apple for Monopolistic Practices

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has paved the way for consumers to sue Apple for their monopolistic practices.

The Supreme Court on Monday said that iPhone users can proceed with a class-action lawsuit against Apple over its control of app sales in a ruling that could destroy the company’s exclusive marketplace of third-party software.

Members of the public had sued Apple, claiming that the company’s monopoly over its App Store led to inflated app prices.

According to The Hill, Apple disputed the legality of the suit, arguing the consumers had no standing to sue the company because it merely operated the App Store as an intermediary between users and the developers who make and sell apps.

Information Liberation reports:
https://www.informationliberation.com/?id=60189

Apple argued they’re above the law but Kavanaugh gave them a kick to the teeth:

Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the opinion for the 5-4 decision, surprising many by breaking with his conservative colleagues and siding with the court’s liberal justices.

The Supreme Court had ruled in 1977 in a case called Illinois Brick that only “direct purchasers” of products have standing to bring antitrust lawsuits. In his decision, Kavanaugh rejected Apple’s argument that it was the app developers, and not the company operating the App Store, that sold the programs directly to users.

“Apple’s theory would provide a roadmap for monopolistic retailers to structure transactions with manufacturers or suppliers so as to evade antitrust claims by consumers and thereby thwart effective antitrust enforcement,” Kavanaugh wrote.

Secretive Israeli Company Uses WhatsApp Voice Calls To Install Spyware On Phones

With so much attention focused recently on constant consumer spying and privacy violations, erroneous or otherwise, by Amazon, Facebook and now Twitter, it is easy to forget that virtually other communication apps have the same purpose, and that's what one secretive Israeli company relied on when they used a vulnerability in the popular messaging app WhatsApp (owned by Facebook) to inject commercial Israeli spyware on to phones, the company and a spyware technology dealer said. What is unique is how the app was infected: with a simple phone call.

According to the FT, WhatsApp which is used by 1.5bn people worldwide, discovered in early May that attackers were able to install surveillance software on to both iPhones and Android phones by ringing up targets using the app’s phone call function. The malicious code, developed by the secretive NSO Group, a notorious and controversial Israeli hacking and surveillance tools vendor, could be transmitted even if users did not answer their phones, and the calls often disappeared from call logs.

It is unclear how many apps were infected with the spyware trojan, which could for example, allow anyone to get access to John Podesta's email password (and then blame say, Vladimir Putin for example) as WhatsApp is too early into its own investigations of the vulnerability to estimate how many phones were targeted using this method, although it is likely a substantial number. As late as Sunday, the FT reports that WhatsApp engineers were racing to close the loophole.

For those who thought that Alexa's constant eavesdropping was bad, this is even worse: NSO’s flagship product is Pegasus, a program that can turn on a phone’s microphone and camera, trawl through emails and messages and collect location data. It effectively opens up one's entire cellphone to the hacker, and to get "infected", one just needs to receive an inbound phone call without ever answering it.

NSO advertises its products to Middle Eastern and Western intelligence agencies, and says Pegasus is intended for governments to fight terrorism and crime. NSO was recently valued at $1bn in a leveraged buyout that involved the UK private equity fund Novalpina Capital

Since the application is Israeli, its hardly a surprise that the spies' preferred targets were Middle Eastern: as the FT reports, in the past, human rights campaigners in the Middle East have received text messages over WhatsApp that contained links that would download Pegasus to their phones.

“This attack has all the hallmarks of a private company known to work with governments to deliver spyware that reportedly takes over the functions of mobile phone operating systems,” the company said, with the government in question being that of Israel. “We have briefed a number of human rights organisations to share the information we can, and to work with them to notify civil society.”

WhatsApp disclosed the issue to the US Department of Justice last week, according to a person familiar with the matter. A justice department spokesman declined to comment.

“NSO Group sells its products to governments who are known for outrageous human rights abuses, giving them the tools to track activists and critics. The attack on Amnesty International was the final straw,” said Danna Ingleton, deputy director of Amnesty International, which identified an attempt to hack into the phone of one its researchers.

“The Israeli ministry of defense has ignored mounting evidence linking NSO Group to attacks on human rights defenders. As long as products like Pegasus are marketed without proper control and oversight, the rights and safety of Amnesty International’s staff and that of other activists, journalists and dissidents around the world is at risk.

Good! Brave Italian Government To Soros NGOs: You Want Migrants? You'll Be Paying For Them!

It would appear that Italy's interior minister Matteo Salvini has escalated his widely-supported anti-destablization stance, by forcing George Soros and his NGO pals to put their money where their virtue-signaling mouths are...

The Guardian's Lorenzo Tondo reports that Italy's government is planning to issue a decree that would mean NGO rescue boats would be fined up to €5,500 (£4,760) for each migrant they disembark on to Italian soil.

As a reminder, Francesca Totolo recently noted in her latest book:

"... all those international NGOs such as Avaaz, Oxfam, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and many others have certainly one thing in common: their financial source, which is Soros. Their role has been, and continues to be, making the Italian people feel guilty if they don’t accept immigrants: legal or illegal, they must be accepted no matter what. So these NGOs, or modern Charons as I like to call them, have effectively – directly or indirectly – smuggled into Italy something like 700.000 people over the last few years. It must be understood, by all means, that something like this is a planned operation since its very beginning.

...as early as 2008 the association “carta di Roma” was founded in Rome. It can be considered the first NGO directly financed by Soros in Italy. What is the purpose of this “association of journalists”? To “promote correct information about immigrants, refugees, asylum-seekers in Italy”. Doesn’t that make you inevitably think that Soros knew as early as 2008 what would happen three years later in Libya and was therefore paving the way for a “change of the paradigm”?"

The new decree reinforces the powers of the ministry of the interior in the matter of immigration and has the objective of putting an end to the NGO rescues. Médecins Sans Frontières, for example, would have had to pay €440m for smuggling 80,000 people if the decree had been in place during the last three years.

Salvini has repeatedly declared Italian waters closed to NGO rescue vessels. Several boats have been left stranded at sea because of this hardline approach, which is partly designed to force other parts of Europe to take in more people.

ENDLESS WAR: Leaked Pentagon Plan Calls For War Against Iran

As Michael Pompeo travels to Brussels to discuss the Iranian threat amid a flare-up in tensions that has brought the US to the brink of an armed conflict, the New York Times has published details from a confidential military plan presented to top national security officials that envisions sending as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East should Iran attack American forces or start ramping up work on nuclear weapons (something it has promised to do if its European partners don't meet their commitments under the Iran deal).

Though the revised plan - it had been modified to incorporate suggestions from John Bolton - doesn't include plans for a land invasion, it does reflect "the influence of Mr. Bolton, one of the administration's most virulent Iran hawks, whose push for confrontation with Tehran was ignored more than a decade ago by President George W Bush."

It's unclear whether Trump himself has seen, or been briefed on, the plan. Asked about it, Trump said "we'll see what happens with Iran. If they do anything, it would be a very bad mistake."

Here are a few key details from the plan according to more than a half-dozen senior administration officials who spoke with the NYT:

The 120,000 troops called for in the plan would be close to the size of the force that invaded Iraq in 2003. The reversal of the US troop presence in the region under Obama and Trump has reportedly emboldened leaders in Tehran and the IRGC that there's no appetite in the US for a war with Iran. Deploying this many troops would take weeks or months.

The most likely trigger for a US military response is still an attack by the IRGC The guard's fleet of small boats has a history of approaching American Navy ships at high speed. Though the plan includes provisions for a US response if Iran once again starts stockpiling nuclear fuel. If Iran does start stockpiling enriched uranium again, the US would have more than a year to formulate a more coherent response, since it would take at least that long for Iran to stockpile anything close to enough to fashion a weapon.

Cyberweapons would be used to paralyze the Iranian economy during the opening salvo of the conflict, in the hopes that this would be enough to cripple Iran before any bombs were dropped. Such an operation would call for "implants" or "beacons" inside US networks. Though, given Iran's increasingly sophisticated cyberweapons, such an attack would still pose "significant risks."

This is not the first time since joining the administration that Bolton has sought updated plans for an invasion of Iran. Though it's widely believed that the president remains opposed to such an incursion. Bolton requested an update after Iranian-backed militants fired three mortar shells into an empty lot on the grounds of the US embassy in Baghdad.

One of the options offered up as a proportional response was a strike on a Iranian military facility that would have been "mostly symbolic."

While a war with Iran still seems unlikely, if Iran starts stockpiling enriched uranium again as it has threatened to do, it could give Bolton and his fellow neocons exactly the opening they need to successfully push for a military intervention.

ENDLESS WAR: Soybeans Crash To Decade-Low As Trade War Intensifies As Govt Subsidies Begin

Soybean futures fell 25% in 50 weeks since the inception of President Trump's trade war early last summer.

CBOT Soybeans futures plunged to their lowest level in a decade as China on Monday said it would raise tariffs on $60 billion in US goods in retaliation for Trump's decision on Friday to raise duties on $200 billion in Chinese products to 25% from 10%. The deepening trade war has pushed American farmers onto the verge of disaster.

The escalation in the trade war doesn't directly affect agricultural products since most were already facing a 25% tariff rate in China last year. But the news on Monday sent soybean prices tumbling.

CBOT Soybeans broke below $8 per bushel on Trump's escalation of the trade war last week, plunged to $7.81 per bushel on the retaliatory tariff increases from China.

Refinitiv trade flows indicate the Sino-American trade war has cut over 80% of US soybean exports to China so far this market year (September-August).

The breakdown in negotiations comes at a time when soybean sales are decreasing, and huge stockpiles are building, have resulted in many farmers teetering on the verge of bankruptcy.

Morrison said China could cancel the 7.4 million metric tons of beans that have not yet been shipped, according to the US Department of Agriculture data.

The collapse in negotiations has also led Trump to pledge $15 billion worth of agricultural product purchases from American farmers through the Commodity Credit Corp., a federal agency given authority during the Great Depression to stabilize prices. Given the large stockpiles, it's still unclear how government purchases of soybeans would resolve the current supply overhang.

New Microsoft Word AI Will Come With SJW Censorship, Blocking Certain Words

Bill Gates’ Microsoft [and Windows 10 is still a peice of SHIT!] is set to release a new version of Word that will use artificial intelligence to ensure you remain “politically correct” at all times while writing.

“Gender bias” will be stamped out by the artificial intelligence, as will any phrases that “might offend somebody from another country or culture.”

You know how annoying it is when your phone corrects ‘fucking’ to ‘ducking’ every time you type the word? [No, because I'd never use those stupid peices of fucking SHIT!] Imagine that all day, every day.

Summit reports:
https://summit.news/2019/05/09/microsoft-to-release-version-of-word-that-makes-your-grammar-politically-correct/

The new feature, called ‘Ideas in Word’, will recommend ‘sensitive’ phrases like “We need to get some fresh blood in here” be modified so that “fresh blood” becomes “new employees”.

“It might underline places where your writing exhibited gender bias,” reports Fast Company. “If you tend to say “mailman” or Congressman” in the generic, it might suggest you use “mailperson” or “Congressperson.” If you use the term “gentlemen’s agreement,” it may suggest you use “unspoken agreement” instead.”

The term “disabled person” would be replaced with “person with a disability while the new version’s “inclusiveness check” searches for words or phrases that might be “offensive” to someone from another country or culture.

Mark Sullivan, who is a fan of the new features, says he is worried about “unknowingly or accidentally inserting terms or references in my writing that convey value judgements that I don’t really mean” and wants to avoid “writing something that might offend”.

Rumor has it that every new purchase of Word will come with a voucher for a yearly supply of soy lattes from Starbucks.

“Rudolf Vrba” – The Holohoax in Person

[ https://holocaustdeprogrammingcourse.com/ ]

I, Eric Thomson, was among those who witnessed and survived the First Great Holocaust Thought-Crime Trial in 1984 through 1985, under the Zionist Occupation Government of Soviet Canada. The victim of this lengthy and costly (to the Gentile tax-payers) jewdicial persecution was and still is, at the time of this writing, Ernst Zündel, who is the only man on this planet who risks going to prison for discussing World War II. What this proves, to the knowledgeable observer, is that World War II is still going on and never ended in 1945, as we have been misled to believe by the jewsmedia and goy stooges of our respective Zionist Occupation Governments.

As a retired railroad man, I have often lamented the prodigal abandonment of thousands of miles of track and the curtailment of rail service in most parts of the world, but I can say from firsthand experience that the railroad business is alive and well in the courtrooms of our so-called democracies.

“Rudolf Vrba” is a name most people never heard of. The Jew who uses that name claims, under oath, that his original name was “Walter Rosenberg” and later, “Joseph Israel Rosenberg”. Who he really was is likely unprovable, since he has testified that “all my documents were burned (cremated?) in Maidanek”. Maidanek, on the outskirts of Lublin, Poland, was one of those alleged “death camps” which produced mostly “survivors”, including Vrba-Rosenberg, whose identity papers were the only things which got “holocausted”.

According to “survivors'” stories, the fiendish Nazis transferred jews from one “death-camp” to another in a form of Russian Roulette which required thousands of precious trains, hundreds of camps stretching from the Atlantic coast to Poland and Austria, and supposedly millions of participants, instead of revolvers loaded with one bullet each. The “sadistic” Nazis, we are supposed to believe (because jews know how to cry as they lie), got so fascinated with this gigantic game that they ‘forgot’ to kill around five million jews who have been receiving ‘reparations payments’ from the Zionist Occupation Government of Germany (Bundeszog). Vrba-Rosenberg was no exception but for the fact that he was probably the first jew to get his gas chamber lies into print, as one of the co-liars who concocted the infamous “War Refugee Board Report” of 1944 which was published under the auspices of the Jewnighted States Government at the behest of jewish President Roosevelt, who apparently thought the liars of the British Government were a bunch of wimps for omitting the “gas chamber” accusation from their official statement on alleged German atrocities in August 1943. Roosevelt had no such scruples. In fact he had no scruples whatsoever, as we know.

Vrba-Rosenberg is himself an interesting study. He claimed, under oath, that he was born in 1924, yet he did not appear to be 61 years old. His hair was not gray, unless he dyed it, but his physical condition mainly belied his years, even if his hair were white, for he had the stocky build and muscular stride of a bouncer, with the face of a crude and ill-tempered thug, as well as the manners and speech of one. It is therefore an exhibition of astonishing arrogance that the Zionist authorities expect us to believe that this specimen was able to earn a doctorate in chemistry and/or pharmacology and that he was capable of teaching these subjects at the University of British Columbia as an associate professor, or at any other institution. This is not to deny his academic rank, but it is to doubt his academic capacities for research and instruction. Anyone may be accorded academic titles and also receive a professor’s salary, even if he has no academic abilities nor qualifications. Those of us who have seen racial hiring quotas in action now view this corruption of our educational institutions as increasingly commonplace. But Vrba-Rosenberg is a very uncommon case. (continued)

Pretty Treasonous: Democrats Blocking Disaster Relief For American Farmers

Senate Democrats blocked a $13.5 billion bill for disaster relief from recent floods, hurricanes and wildfires on Monday, arguing that the more than $600 million provided to Puerto Rico was not nearly enough.

The disaster relief package combined aid for a variety of natural disasters the country experienced, including support to southern farmers, California towns hit by wildfires and mudslides and states such as Georgia, Florida and North Carolina that were hit by hurricanes. The legislation would also provide funding to rebuild military bases in Florida and North Carolina that were destroyed during the hurricanes.

Republican Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby amended the text to give Puerto Rico $610 million in nutrition assistance, however, Democrats argue Puerto Rico needs additional funds to bolster flood protection and repair the electrical grid, reported Bloomberg.

The disaster relief package was voted down by a vote of 44 to 49, falling short of the needed 60-vote supermajority to overcome the Democratic filibuster.

“I have never been more frustrated as a United States Senator than I am right now. This is pure partisan politics,” Republican Georgia Sen. David Perdue, who sponsored the legislation, tweeted following the vote.

“Washington has reached a new low — it’s been nearly six months since Hurricane Michael ravaged Georgia and other states across the country, and Congress has failed to help the very people it claims to represent,” Perdue later said in a statement. “President [Donald] Trump reached across the aisle, along with other Republicans, to compromise on disaster relief, but only one Democrat was willing to work with us.”

“Do not be fooled — Senate Democrats are using farmers in the Southeast and the people of Puerto Rico as pawns in their political game,” he continued. “It is hypocritical that Democrats say they want to help Puerto Rico recover, and yet they obstruct this disaster relief.”

“The Democrats today killed a Bill that would have provided great relief to Farmers and yet more money to Puerto Rico despite the fact that Puerto Rico has already been scheduled to receive more hurricane relief funding than any “place” in history,” Trump said. “The people of Puerto Rico are GREAT, but the politicians are incompetent or corrupt. Puerto Rico got far more money than Texas & Florida combined, yet their government can’t do anything right, the place is a mess – nothing works.”

US Taxpayers In Leftist Hellhole New York City Will Now Pay To Take Care of Illegals

New York City’s socialist Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday that illegal aliens living in the Bronx will be among the first to receive an “NYC care card” in August.

Those who receive the “NYC care card” will have access to free health coverage paid for by city funds, in a move Mayor de Blasio has presented as radical form of wealth redistribution.

“You will hear some critics who say we can’t afford to give everyone healthcare,” de Blasio said as he announced the plan during a press conference at Lincoln Hospital.

“I have a simple answer. It’s not a problem of money from my point of view,” de Blasio argued.

“There’s plenty of money in this world, there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands.”

https://nypost.com/2019/01/08/de-blasio-touts-100m-plan-to-provide-healthcare-for-all-nyc-residents/

Ahhhhhhh, hear that hardworking NY taxpayers? Blasio says you don't deserve the money you worked hard for! Illegals deserve that money!

There are thought to be over half a million undocumented immigrants living in New York City.

According to the New York Post, the project to give away free health care is projected to cost taxpayers $100 million.

The mayor introduced the NYC Care card that will give some 300,000 immigrants and low-income New Yorkers free medical care.

The card will give recipients access to a primary care doctor, prescriptions and other medical services.

The Ultimate Shitstorm To End All Our Shit Is About To Hit The Fan

BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/IoKi1

Undoubtedly, a storm is coming and even worse than that: A perfect shitstorm.

Or, stated with more clarity, the forthcoming waves of catastrophes will be the direct result of circumstances brought on by simultaneously devastating forces greater than any individual could fully comprehend.

With that in mind, and in continuing with the perfect storm as a metaphor, one thing is guaranteed: It is always better to find safe harbor and live to set sail another day than to drown beneath waves of cataclysmic confluences.

Indeed. It would be very dangerous to underestimate the shitstorm that is about to commence in the United States and around the world.

Furthermore, as seen in the time-lapsed video above, perfect storms contain many elements working in conjunction like whirling dervishes dancing with devils; or gravity synchronously siphoning disparate fluids down a drain.

Yes, dear reader, we’re going down. The U.S. has been torn into pieces, her institutions laid waste and Trump’s economic policies will no doubt be blamed in the aftermath of a full-blown economic collapse. To be sure, the final straw will appear when any number of black swans deliver the tiniest of pin pricks to the global debt bubble.

So where does one duck? Where does one hide? Or, at the very least, how do we mitigate the overall effects and consequences of the coming perfect storm for ourselves and those whom we hold dear?

It’s Not Trump Derangement Syndrome Anymore

The Democrats don’t believe in our two-party system anymore. They utterly reject American civic norms of treating the president with a modicum of respect and cooperation. They don’t want to alternate presidential power every four or eight years. They think theirs is the only party that deserves to be elected.

Naked political power is the driving force behind our culture wars, and behind the weird war on President Trump. It has little to do with his specific policies, let alone his tweets and his pugnacious personality, except that Trump’s counterpunching and toughness have allowed him to survive.

Trump drives Democrats crazy because he won, and because he won’t give in or give up. … It’s not derangement, it’s war.

Since the election of Trump, it has been breathtaking to witness the collapse of the Deep State’s curtain thus revealing the wizards in the swamp. Even now, it is stunning to see how the likes of Hillary Clinton, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, et al, all lie so expertly & naturally. Even if they are only the mid-level management serving the whims of the vampires at the top of the pyramid, they have been fully exposed as unctuously selling their snake oil and without any conscience whatsoever.

Given our history since the rise of the surveillance state, what do you think the chances of these wizards NOT getting away with their crimes might be?

I would say slim to none.

The point is this: lies have become truth in the new age; and the average ordinary everyday sleepy sheeple never stood a chance – perhaps, primarily, because they want to believe so badly in the new faith. Somewhere along the way, deceiving these fools became like stealing pieces of cake from babies.

Dmitry Orlov is a computer engineer born in Lenigrad and has written extensively regarding his eye-witness account of the collapse of the Soviet Union. In his writings, he has identified the Five Stages of [Societal] Collapse as follows:

Stage 1: Financial Collapse
Stage 2: Commercial Collapse
Stage 3: Political Collapse
Stage 4: Social Collapse
Stage 5: Cultural Collapse

Remember that heroes do the next right thing even when they are at their weakest and most afraid; especially then.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.

Europe Vows To Continue Buying Iranian Oil As US Revokes Export Waivers

As if to mark one year since President Trump formally withdrew from the JCPOA - better known as the "Iran Deal" - last May, the foreign ministers of the UK, France and Germany, as well as EU foreign policy head Federica Mogherini, on Saturday issued a statement condemning the White House's decision, and vowing once again to abide by the terms of the deal.

The statement is the latest sign that Trump's decision to reimpose sanctions on Iranian oil exports could set up the US for a showdown with its allies in Europe that could accelerate the de-dollarization of the global financial system, as Europe continues to work on an alternative payments system to the Treasury-dominated SWIFT network.

"We, the High Representative of the European Union and the Foreign Ministers of France, Germany and the United Kingdom, take note with regret and concern of the decision by the United States not to extend waivers with regards to trade in oil with Iran," the European guarantors of the nuclear deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Politico reports.

The US turned the screws on Iran last week by cancelling all of the waivers on Iranian crude exports it had issued after reimposing sanctions back in November - effectively leaving $1 billion in Iranian crude stranded outside a Chinese port - while also cancelling two of the seven waivers granted to businesses working with Iran's civilian nuclear program.

Despite the US's decision to brand Iran’s revolutionary guard as a "terrorist organization," the Europeans continued to "encourage all countries" to make their "best efforts" to engage in legitimate trade with Iran.

It's also possible that the Europeans' statement was intended to calm global oil markets, as the US's decision to crack down on remaining Iranian oil exports, combined with the turmoil in Venezuela and Libya, could send oil prices higher (though the Trump administration has sought to offset this by recruiting Iran's regional rivals to increase their output). The rising tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia have prompted Iran to warn that the collapse of OPEC could be imminent (should that happen, it's very likely that a new organization led by Saudi Arabia and Russia could emerge in its place).

And in any case, Iran has vowed to continue exporting its oil in defiance of the Americans' wishes.

Read the full statement below:

We, the High Representative of the European Union and the Foreign Ministers of France, Germany and the United Kingdom, take note with regret and concern of the decision by the United States not to extend waivers with regards to trade in oil with Iran. We also note with concern the decision by the United States not to fully renew waivers for nuclear non-proliferation projects in the framework of the JCPoA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action).

The lifting of nuclear-related sanctions is an essential part of the JCPoA – it aims at having a positive impact not only on trade and economic relations with Iran, but most importantly on the lives of the Iranian people. We deeply regret the re-imposition of sanctions by the United States following their withdrawal from the JCPoA.

We remain deeply convinced that the JCPoA is key to increasing stability and security in the Middle East region.

Together, we emphasise our continued commitment to the JCPoA, a crucial element of the global nuclear non-proliferation regime and essential for our national and shared European security.

Police State USSA: SEC Is Allowing MasterCard's Discrimination Against Conservatives

Blocking payments to individuals or groups by financial service firms impedes freedom of speech in a free society, journalist Ben Swann has told RT, following reports that MasterCard is allegedly on course to censor the far-right.

The New York-based firm is reportedly being forced by 'liberal' despots to set up an internal “human rights committee” that would monitor payments to “white supremacist groups and anti-Islam activists.”

“The problem is that everyone has their own views and, in a free society, the idea of a free society is that you are free to have your belief systems, as long as you’re not harming anyone else physically,” Swann told RT America.

“But your belief system belongs to you and you have the right be wrong. White supremacists have the right to be wrong.”

MasterCard is not the only holder of purse-strings that is mulling the selective banning of individuals from their services and funds. Patreon and PayPal have previously barred individuals from receiving payments using their platforms, due to their 'extreme' views.

These actions are in-our-face Anti-American and defy Constitutional law.

The issue with such an approach, the investigative journalist argues, would lead to a wider crackdown on financial payments to anyone who the government would see as unfavorable.

“The fact that the SEC has given a green light to this essentially says the SEC supports the idea of censoring these groups in order to freeze out essentially anyone you don’t agree with,” the journalist said.

“It is such a dystopian 1984 world view and yet we’re living through it right now,” the journalist observed.

A FEW Little Things The Mainstream Media Left Out About The Recent Colorado Shooters...

One of the two students who opened fire on a school in Denver has been identified as 18-year-old Devon Erickson, a registered Democrat who has expressed admiration for Barack Obama. He also was caught bashing Christians on social media.

According to local reports, the second shooter, a minor, was in the process of transitioning from female to male.

An 18-year-old boy was killed and eight other students were injured when gunfire erupted at STEM School Highlands Ranch on Tuesday afternoon.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed Erickson is the adult shooter.

Erickson’s social media pages indicate that he is a youth theater actor and registered Democrat who has expressed hatred for some Christians, criticized President Donald Trump and praised former President Barack Obama.

In a post from 2014, Erickson wrote: ‘You know what I hate? All these Christians who hate gays, yet in the bible, it says in Deuteronomy 17:12-13, if someone doesn’t do what their priest tells them to do, they are supposed to die. It has plenty of crazy stuff like that. But all they get out of it is “ewwwwww gays”.’

In 2015 he shared a Facebook post by Occupy Democrats praising Obama, and in 2016 shared a video of TV host Seth Meyers criticizing Trump.

The Denver Channel reported that the second suspect, who is a minor, was in the process of transitioning from female to male.

Multiple sources told the outlet that the motive of the alleged shooters went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards their classmates.

They said at least one of the suspects was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy.

Shocker! 9th Circuit Court Just Ruled Illegal Invaders CAN Be Sent Back To Mexico

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1138

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that President Trump can continue deporting illegals back to Mexico while their cases are processed.

In a major blow to Democrats, the San Fransisco ruling places a stay on a preliminary injunction on the asylum policy issued by a lower court.

http://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2019/05/07/19-15716.pdf

Thehill.com reports:
https://thehill.com/latino/442625-court-rules-trump-admin-can-continue-policy-requiring-asylum-seekers-remain-in-mexico

The panel of judges wrote in the opinion that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had shown that it was likely to suffer irreparable harm if the policy was halted because it “takes off the table one of the few congressionally authorized measures available to process the approximately 2,000 migrants who are currently arriving at the Nation’s southern border on a daily basis.”

The judges also found that the policy was not implemented in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act because it is not one of the policies covered by the act and therefore does not require certain processes to take place ahead of its implementation.

Several immigration groups had sued DHS over the policy on behalf of migrants affected by the policy, arguing that the practice was improperly implemented and put the migrants in harm’s way.

However, some of the judges were highly critical of DHS’s implementation of the policy in individual opinions authored on the decision, signaling that they could oppose the policy in a later ruling.

Trump's Tax Documents Proves He Lost Billions Making Shitty Buisness Deals

By the time his master-of-the-universe memoir “Trump: The Art of the Deal” hit bookstores in 1987, Donald J. Trump was already in deep financial distress, losing tens of millions of dollars on troubled business deals, according to previously unrevealed figures from his federal income tax returns.

The data — printouts from Mr. Trump’s official Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts, with the figures from his federal tax form, the 1040, for the years 1985 to 1994 — represents the fullest and most detailed look to date at the president’s taxes, information he has kept from public view.

The numbers show that in 1985, Mr. Trump reported losses of $46.1 million from his core businesses — largely casinos, hotels and retail space in apartment buildings. They continued to lose money every year, totaling $1.17 billion in losses for the decade.

In fact, year after year, Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer, The Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the I.R.S. compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners. His core business losses in 1990 and 1991 — more than $250 million each year — were more than double those of the nearest taxpayers in the I.R.S. information for those years.

Over all, Mr. Trump lost so much money that he was able to avoid paying income taxes for eight of the 10 years. It is not known whether the I.R.S. later required changes after audits.

https://web.archive.org/web/20190508131054/https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/05/07/us/politics/donald-trump-taxes.html

President Donald Trump on Wednesday fired back at The New York Times over the newspaper's investigative report that said his tax figures from 1985 through 1994 showed staggering business losses of more than $1 billion.

"You always wanted to show losses for tax purposes....almost all real estate developers did – and often re-negotiate with banks, it was sport," Trump said in a pair of early morning tweets. "Additionally, the very old information put out is a highly inaccurate Fake News hit job!"

The Times published the report Tuesday night. It said it obtained Trump's tax information, including printouts from his official IRS tax transcripts, for 1985 through 1994. Trump's book, "Trump: The Art of the Deal," was published in 1987.

The newspaper said data culled from printouts of Trump's IRS receipts showed he lost money every year during the 10-year period, for a cumulative $1.17 billion loss overall. The Times also said Trump didn't pay income taxes during eight of those 10 years.

Trump apparently lost more money than any other individual taxpayer in the U.S., according to the Times' analysis of data the IRS has compiled on people earning large incomes.

Functional Italian Government Sends Migrants To Boot Camp, Making Them Adapt To Culture And Laws

Italy has launched a boot camp school for refugees aimed at encouraging cultural integration for asylum seekers.

At a mayor-founded academy in Bergamo, a group of 30 uniformed migrants form two neat rows, hands behind their backs in a military-style “at east” position.

In the corridor of a building, they sing: “We are the students of the first course of the Accademia dell’Integrazione Grazie Bergamo, Thank you Bergamo”.

The students are asylum seekers participating in a boot-camp style one-year programme whose explicit purpose is to integrate migrants.

Voiceofeurope.com reports:
https://voiceofeurope.com/2019/05/italian-integration-boot-camp-forces-migrants-to-do-free-community-work-sing-the-national-anthem-and-wear-thank-you-printed-clothes/

Participants attend Italian-language classes, get internships at factories in the area and have to follow a strict routine.

They also have to do community service work for free.

The academy’s students can only use their smartphones for a few hours a day. For the best part of the day, their rooms are empty, with perfectly made beds. No language other than Italian is allowed. And they look more like cadets than students.

They must always wear a uniform and have three kinds of outfits.

When they are inside, it is a blue tracksuit with the words “Grazie Bergamo” in large print on the back; the second uniform is orange, similar to waste collectors, and also bears the words “Grazie Bergamo” in large print; the third, worn in free time, is a blue shirt and grey sweater with a small school logo, which also allows them to take the city’s public transportation free of charge.

“This is not a school for everyone”, Giorgio Gori, mayor of Bergamo, a wealthy city in northern Italy, about 50km east of Milan, told Al Jazeera.

It’s no place for slackers, he says, because participants “must respect a series of rules of cohabitation” and professional training is mandatory, “with the aim of getting them to a job”.

Foreign Spies Acquired NSA Tools via Amazon S3 Hacking, Used Them To Cyberattack US Allies

A leading cybersecurity firm found evidence Chinese intelligence operatives repurposed National Security Agency hacking technology in 2016 to attack American allies and private firms in Europe and Asia, according to the New York Times.

Researchers with Symantec believe the Chinese government captured the code from an NSA attack on their own systems rather than stealing it, according to the article. The hacking group that repurposed the tools has committed several attacks on U.S. targets including space, satellite and nuclear propulsion tech manufacturers, according the Times, citing a classified agency memo.

Some of the same tools were also dumped online by an unidentified group calling itself the Shadow Brokers, later used by North Korean and Russian intelligence, according to the Times, although there is no apparent connection between the Chinese acquisition and Shadow Brokers’ activity.

While Symantec is not sure how the Chinese got the code, Chinese intelligence contractors have used the tools to conduct cyber-warfare in Belgium, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, the Philippines and Vietnam, according to the Times, with targets ranging from schools and scientific research to the government of a U.S. ally. In one case, an operation against a telecommunications network may have led them to obtain as many as millions of private communications, according to Symantec.

Symantec’s research does not explicitly identify the Chinese government, instead referencing “the Buckeye group,” the firm’s term for a team of hackers identified by both the Justice Department and private firms as a contractor for China’s Ministry of State, according to the report. The Justice Department indicted three hackers connected to the group in 2017.

“This is the first time we’ve seen a case — that people have long referenced in theory — of a group recovering unknown vulnerabilities and exploits used against them, and then using these exploits to attack others,” Eric Chien, a security director at Symantec, told the Times.

James Woods Banned From Twitter As Govt-Tech Firms Censor More Conservatives

Outspoken conservative actor James Woods has been banned from Twitter for more than a week after he tweeted "If you try to kill the King, you best not miss’ #HangThemAll" - an apparent reference to the Mueller report.

In September, Woods was temporarily suspended for posting a satirical meme which very clearly parodies a Democratic advertisement campaign, encouraging liberal men to "make a woman's vote worth more" by staying home.

On Friday, President Trump tweeted: "So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!"

According to Breitbart's James Caruso, Twitter appears to have two sets of standards, and has given many on the left a pass for much, much worse behavior.

Meanwhile, on Thursday Facebook unilaterally banned several conservative influencers from its platform - 'balancing it out' with documented anti-Semite and Democrat ally, Louis Farrakhan.

The conservatives banned include Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer and Paul Nehlen, who were labeled "extremists" and "dangerous."

Thank you Mr. President. Now hopefully Facebook will be stripped of its immunity under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act because it is clearly acting as a partisan publisher and not a platform. This is election meddling.

Kike group alarmed after German police let National Socialists march

[All denigrating references saying "neo-Nazis" will be changed to National Socialists]

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s leading jewish organization expressed alarm Thursday over footage of flag-waving National Socialists in self-styled uniforms marching through an eastern German town on May Day unhindered by police. Footage of the march Wednesday prompted widespread outrage in Germany and calls for authorities in the state of Saxony, where far-right sentiment is particularly strong, to step in. “The images of the National Socialist march by The Third Way party in Plauen are disturbing and frightening,” said Josef Schuster, the head of Germany’s Central Council of Jews. Noting that the rally took place on the eve of Yom HaShoah , the day when Jews commemorate the [fake] six million jewish men, women and children [not] murdered in the [fraud] Holocaust, Schuster added that “right-wing extremists are marching in Saxony in a way that brings back memories of the darkest [best] chapter in German history.”
[Obligatory:] https://holocaustdeprogrammingcourse.com/
German security agencies say The Third Way, a relatively small party, has close ties to far-right extremists. The march in Plauen took place to the beat of heavy drums made to look like those used by the Hitler Youth. Participants shouted slogans such as “Criminal foreigners out!” and “National socialism now!” Saxony police said several hundred people took part in the march. Counter-protesters were kept away. Police said they are investigating nine people for illegally covering their faces during the event and another for insulting an officer, but described the day as a success from a policing perspective because there was no violence. The Central Council of jews said authorities should have prevented the march from taking place at all.

“If the Saxony state government is serious about combating right-wing extremism, it must not allow such demonstrations,” Schuster said. “The jewish community expects decisive action and visible consequences from the responsible authorities and the state government.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right Christian Democratic Union is running neck-and-neck in recent opinion polls with the far-right Alternative for Germany party ahead of Sept. 1 state election in Saxony. At a separate rally Wednesday, National Socialists marched through the western German city of Duisburg with signs calling for the destruction of Israel.

US-China Trade Deal Dead: Trump To Raise Tarrifs Against China To Record 25%

So much for months and months of constant leaks, headlines, tweets, and press reports that US-China trade talks are going great, and are imminent amid an ocean of "optimism" (meant solely to sucker in amateurs into the most obvious bull headfake since 1987).

Just after noon on Sunday, President Trump tweeted that 10% tariffs paid by China on $200 billion in goods will rise to 25% on Friday, and that - contrary to what he himself and his chief economist, Larry Kudlow has said for months, talks on a trade deal have been going too slowly.

And, just to underscore his point, Trump also threatened to impose 25% tariffs on an additional $325 billion of Chinese goods “shortly.”

....of additional goods sent to us by China remain untaxed, but will be shortly, at a rate of 25%. The Tariffs paid to the USA have had little impact on product cost, mostly borne by China. The Trade Deal with China continues, but too slowly, as they attempt to renegotiate. No!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2019

With the tariff rate on numerous goods originally set at 10% and set to more than double in 2019, Trump postponed that decision after China and the US agreed to sit down for trade talks; following Trump's tweet it is now confirmed that trade talks have hit an impasse and that escalation will be needed to break the stalemate.

It was as recently as Friday that Vice President Mike Pence told CNBC that Trump remained hopeful that he could strike a deal with China (at the same time as he was urging for a rate cut from the Fed).

The S&P closed on Friday at a new all time high, with hardly a concern in the world and nothing but blue skies ahead... and then just two tweets from Donald Trump shortly after noon on Sunday afternoon shattered the market's idyllic picture, when the US president admitted that trade talks with China are not only not going "optimistically", but have effectively collapsed and tariffs on Chinese imports would be hiked.

The result, discussed overnight, was a "sea of red" as risk assets and currencies across the globe collapsed, offset by a flight into safe assets including Treasuries and the US dollar. The MSCI world index fell half a percent.

Trump sharply escalated tensions between the world’s two largest economies with tweeted comments on Sunday that trade talks with China were proceeding “too slowly”, and that he would raise tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods to 25 percent on Friday from 10 percent. The tweets stirred up the near-record calm market mood arising from signs of improving economic growth in China and the United States, and from comments from Trump and other senior U.S. officials that trade talks were going well.

Dutch Central Bank Admits Their Ponzi Schemes Only Benefit The Super Rich

The Netherlands Central Bank has just published a fascinating new paper, titled "Monetary policy and the top one percent: Evidence from a century of modern economic history".

Authored by Mehdi El Herradi and Aurélien Leroy, (Working Paper No. 632, De Nederlandsche Bank NV), the paper "examines the distributional implications of monetary policy from a long-run perspective with data spanning a century of modern economic history in 12 advanced economies between 1920 and 2015, ...estimating the dynamic responses of the top 1% income share to a monetary policy shock."

The authors "exploit the implications of the macroeconomic policy trilemma to identify exogenous variations in monetary conditions." Note: the macroeconomic policy trilemma "states that a country cannot simultaneously achieve free capital mobility, a fixed exchange rate and independent monetary policy".

Per authors:

"The central idea that guided this paper’s argument is that the existing literature considers the distributional effects of monetary policy using data on inequality over a short period of time. However, inequalities tend to vary more in the medium-to-long run. We address this shortcoming by studying how changes in monetary policy stance over a century impacted the income distribution while controlling for the determinants of inequality."

They find that "loose monetary conditions strongly increase the top one percent’s income and vice versa. In fact, following an expansionary monetary policy shock, the share of national income held by the richest 1 percent increases by approximately 1 to 6 percentage points, according to estimates from the Panel VAR and Local Projections (LP).

This effect is statistically significant in the medium run and economically considerable."

The authors also demonstrate that:

"The increase in top 1 percent’s share is arguably the result of higher asset prices. The baseline results hold under a battery of robustness checks, which (i) consider an alternative inequality measure, (ii) exclude the U.S. economy from the sample, (iii) specifically focus on the post-WWII period, (iv) remove control variables and (v) test different lag numbers. Furthermore, the regime-switching version of our model indicates that our conclusions are robust, regardless of the state of the economy."

China Develops Groundbreaking Heat-Resistant Material For Hypersonic Weapon

At Mach 5 (3,836 mph), a hypersonic vehicle enters a dense atmospheric layer, the ambient gas undergoes not only density change, but also a significant temperature increase. This physical-chemical reaction is associated with the flight speed is converted into heat and chemical energy, which is a considerable heat barrier that had researchers around the world scrambling for new materials that could withstand temperatures far higher than the melting point of metal.

It seems that researchers in central China, studying hypersonic heat transfer, a subdivision of aerodynamics that studies gas motion laws, have developed a non-carbon-based heat-resistance material for hypersonic flight, according to the Global Times.

Jinglian said the composite of ceramics and refractory metals makes the new material far more superior to Western technologies that use "traditional refractory metals and carbon-carbon materials."

She said the composite is like concrete cobble.

"Think of the ceramics as the cobblestones, or the pellets, and the refractory metals are like the concrete. In high temperatures, the ceramics will act as pellets that pin the refractory metals, so they will not soften and deform."

As a result, the material has a melting point higher than metal, but also important characteristics such as low density and high malleability, according to the Hunan Television report.

As of March, the composite has been used in aviation, space exploration, shipbuilding, and national defense products, Hunan Television said.

Over the past two decades, China has made enormous progress in upgrading its military capabilities. China launched its hypersonic program in 2009, and by 2014, began testing an experimental hypersonic glide vehicle - that could be operational by 2020.

We reported last month that Xiamen University, a public university in Xiamen, Fujian on China's southeast coast, successfully tested a hypersonic missile in Northwestern China.

Wireless Headphones Pumping Radiation Into Brains (No Wonder The Masses Are So Stupid!)

Wireless headphones could pump radiation directly into your brain and harm your health, a biochemist has warned.

According to Jerry Phillips, professor of biochemistry at the University of Colorado at Colorado Spring, there is evidence which “indicates potential concerns for human health and development from all technologies that operate at radio frequencies.”

Metro.co.uk reports:
https://metro.co.uk/2019/03/12/wireless-headphones-pump-radiation-brain-cause-cancer-8889250/

He was one of the 250 signatories of a petition to the UN calling for ‘protection’ from the radiation emitted by electronic devices.

‘Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines,’ the petition said.

‘Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.

‘Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.’

The petition continued: ”The various agencies setting safety standards have failed to impose sufficient guidelines to protect the general public, particularly children who are more vulnerable to the effects of EMF,’ they wrote.’ By not taking action, the WHO is failing to fulfil its role as the preeminent international public health agency.’

Apple makes wireless headphones which fit into the ear called AirPods, whilst Samsung manufactures similar devices called Galaxy Buds.

Good! UK Donors Abandoning May's Cuckservative Party In Favor Of New Brexit Party

As rank-and-file Tory members conspire to finally oust Theresa May from No. 10, the party is facing a donor rebellion that will restrict its ability to campaign during the upcoming EU Parliamentary vote, and also leave it in a difficult position if the opposition succeeds in its push for a general election.

Donors from the business community, who in the past have been a significant source of financing for the Tories, are abandoning the party and instead donating to either campaigns for a second Brexit referendum, or Nigel Farage's Brexit Party (which is leading the Tories in the EU Parliament elections polls) or Boris Johnson's leadership campaign, according to Business Insider.

The shortage of funds has reportedly left the Tories with just £1.5 million ($2 million) in the bank.

The situation has grown so dire that the CEO of the party, Mick Davis, has reportedly been forced to dip into his own pockets to cover some of the costs of the upcoming EU Parliamentary vote. He has reportedly told MPs that supporters have refused to donate because of the infighting over Brexit, which has threatened to tear the party apart.

"There’s a lot of money sloshing around, but most of it isn’t going to the Conservatives," said one source who spoke with BI. "The conservative party is struggling because people don't think they're delivering on their promises," another said.

The support for another referendum comes as Labour has reportedly re-committed to supporting a second referendum if they can't secure a general election.

"Donors have identified other vehicles for their particular cause. If you’re a hedge fund manager who’s a keen Brexiteer, you will donate to Boris’s campaign. If you’re a business which backs a second referendum, you will donate to Right to Vote."

Republican Lawmaker Warns Fellow Americans To Be Prepared For Another Civil War

BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/IoKi1

Washington state Republican Rep Matt Shea has warned American citizens that a civil war is coming to America.

According to audio obtained by left-wing newspaper the Guardian, Rep Shea and radio host John Jacob Schmidt, told attendees at a north-eastern religious compound last year to “arm themselves” ahead of a looming civil war.

Theguardian.com reports:
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/may/01/republican-matt-shea-rightwing-rally-guns

In his speech at God and Country last June, which immediately followed Shea’s speech, Robertson said: “Of course, you all know that you should have an AR-15 and a thousand rounds of ammo, right? Because Antifa is kicking up and getting ready to defend, right?”

Shea’s speech flirted with themes of civil war, but mostly focused on the idea of separating eastern Washington out into a separate political entity, with the view of having “an entire geographic area repent”.

He began by proposing “a simple idea that may make you cringe a little at first. And that idea is that liberty must be kept by force.”

Shea said the reason America was no longer a “beacon of Christianity”, was “because of compromise. And it’s not knowing that the communists are training, they’re planning, they’re organizing and they are lying in wait.”

He added: “If you don’t believe that, then you don’t understand what is really wrong with America.”

In his 2018 speech, Robertson said the audience should prepare for the threat of civil war. “It’s a fact that what we see on the political landscape and our cultural landscape are indicative of a coming civil war,” he said.

Sociopaths Leading The Way To Debt Insolvency, Hyperinflation And Economic Ruin

No one seems to care that a government already over $22 trillion in debt is on schedule to borrow another $990 million this year. All of this is occurring as individual Americans further enslave themselves with higher debt loads and retail stores fail over the inability to pay back the money they borrowed. But there are many reasons to be concerned about government spending.

The debt-based system we live under won’t sustain itself forever. Don’t get us wrong, the sociopaths in government and at the Federal Reserve (central bankers) will prop it up for as long as possible, but it is doomed to fail. That $22 trillion doesn’t include unfunded liabilities either, making the situation even uglier.

According to ABC News, The Treasury Department on Monday projected that borrowing in the April-June quarter would total $30 billion. Borrowing in the July-September period, the final quarter of the budget year will total $160 billion. The $990 billion borrowing total for the 2019 budget year would be down from $1.2 trillion borrowed in 2018. But both years are up from 2017’s $519 billion in government borrowing.

The Foundation for Economic Freedom (FEE) reported that the deficits are likely to double within ten years, making this an issue that could impoverish everyone. There are 5 reasons why the national debt is a big problem and why everyone should be worried about it.

Benefits Spending: Most federal spending is for subsidy and benefit programs, not for activities that increase productivity. Subsidy and benefit programs distort the economy and generally reduce overall output and incomes. Those distortions occur whether spending is financed by debt or current taxes. But the availability of debt financing induces policymakers to increase overall spending, which at the margin goes toward lower-valued activities.

Tax Damage Compounded: When taxes are extracted to pay for government spending, it induces people to change their working and investing activities, which distorts the economy and reduces growth. When spending is financed by borrowing, the tax damage is pushed to the future and compounded with interest costs.

Investment Reduced: Government borrowing may “crowd out” private investment and thus reduce future output and incomes. Economist James Buchanan said: “By financing current public outlay by debt, we are, in effect, chopping up the apple trees for firewood, thereby reducing the yield of the orchard forever.” The crowd out will be reduced if private saving rises to offset government deficits. But the CBO says “the rise in private saving is generally a good deal smaller than the increase in federal borrowing.” Government debt may also deter investment through expectations—businesses will hesitate to invest if rising debt creates fears of tax increases down the road.

Borrowing from Abroad: A decline in private investment due to government borrowing may be avoided if capital is attracted from abroad. Indeed, huge federal borrowing has been facilitated by global capital markets, and today more than 40 percent of the federal debt is held by foreigners. Borrowing from abroad may prevent a fall in domestic investment, but it does not prevent the shifting of costs to future taxpayers. As government debt rises, more of our future earnings will be taxed to pay interest and principal on the government’s debt to foreigners.

Macroeconomic Instability: CBO warns that a “large and continuously growing federal debt would … increase the likelihood of a fiscal crisis in the United States.” Experience shows that high levels of government debt tend to reduce growth and increase financial fragility. In their study of financial crises through history, Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff concluded, “again and again, countries, banks, individuals, and firms take on excessive debt in good times without enough awareness of the risks that will follow when the inevitable recession hits.” Government debt, they found, “is certainly the most problematic, for it can accumulate massively and for long

Russia To Build Their Own Internet Without Any Access To Outside World

President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed into law a "sovereign internet" bill which will allow Russian authorities to isolate the country's internet, a move decried by rights groups.

Russian lawmakers insist the new law is necessary to ensure the security of Russia's online networks but critics say the vaguely worded bill gives new censorship powers to government monitors.

The text of the law was published Wednesday but it will not come into effect until November.

The measures include creating technology to monitor internet routing and to steer Russian internet traffic away from foreign servers, ostensibly to prevent a foreign country from shutting it down.

The authors of the initiative say Russia must ensure the security of its networks after US President Donald Trump unveiled a new American cybersecurity strategy last year that said Russia had carried out cyber attacks with impunity.

Thousands of people recently rallied in Russia against this and other bills that critics say aim to restrict information and communication online.

Separately, Putin in March signed controversial laws that allow courts to fine and briefly jail people for showing disrespect towards authorities, and block media for publishing "fake news".

The laws are part of an ongoing Kremlin clampdown on media and internet freedoms that has seen people jailed for sharing humorous memes. This is the exact kind of censorship going on in the UK and much of Europe today too.

Corporate Mainstream Media Bites Their Nails As Catalan Separatists Triumph In Spanish Election

The Spanish General election in Catalonia was a stunning victory for the Catalan Separatists, their best ever election result, achieved despite their leadership being exiled or political prisoners and despite an avalanche of MSM propaganda against them. Four of those elected are currently in jail. The Spanish state has reacted by declaring the two major separatist candidates, Clara Ponsati and Carles Puigdemont, ineligible for the European Parliament elections.

The Catalan Republican Left won the biggest share of the vote, which negates the continued false propaganda being put about Catalonian Independence being a right wing movement. Over 60% of the vote in Catalonia went to avowedly left wing parties.

It is further worth noting that there is a very plain correlation between the geographical location of the 3.6% of the vote that the neo-fascists of Vox gained in Catalonia, and the Spanish occupation garrisons in the country.

You will struggle very hard indeed to learn any of the above facts from British mainstream media; I had to get them all from Catalan sources.

The Guardian has published 55 articles in the last three years boosting Ines Arrimadas, the leader of the Catalan branch of the right wing “Spanish” Citizens Party, including at least three op-eds written by Ines herself. The Guardian has sought relentlessly to portray public opinion in Catalonia as anti-Independence, and Arrimadas as its true representative.

Given the thuggish violence of Francoist paramilitary forces against the ordinary voters in Catalonia’s referendum, given the imprisoning and exile of its peaceful leadership, given the extraordinary Madrid dictated barrage of MSM propaganda, the Catalan nationalist victory in the General Election is a wonderful triumph for the human spirit.

You Were Warned! Geo-engineered Cyclone Bomb Sends Meat Prices Skyrocketing

FLASHBACK: >>>/n/765265
>>>/related/17

Just hours after IMF Director Christine Lagarde got done telling the world that "everybody" would like a little more inflation, McDonald's warned investors on Tuesday that it could be under pressure from commodity costs in the U.S. rising as much as 3% - higher than the 1% to 2% inflation that it had forecast just three months ago. In fact, the dining industry as a whole is reeling under the same pricing pressure, according to Bloomberg.

BJ’s Restaurants Inc. is expecting higher pork prices and Yum China Holdings Inc. told investors that rising poultry costs will hit their margins for the rest of the year. These worries come on top of a cost concerns about a rise in the minimum wage.

The rise in meat prices has been largely driven by the swine fever that is decimating China's hog population. Processors around the world have been trying to make up for the shortages caused by the outbreak, but prices have spiked nonetheless. As companies look to substitute pork with more chicken and beef, those prices have also risen.

At Texas Roadhouse Inc., the price hikes have already hit the menu, with customers paying as much as 3% more to help the company try to offset its costs. President Scott Colosi said: “That’s going to go a long ways on margins.”

And so it seems that just about "everybody" in the industry is recognizing these signs of inflation - except, of course, for people like Jerome Powell, Christine Lagarde and other central bankers.

NASA Sides With Global Warming Skeptics, Carbon Dioxide is GREENING the Earth

In direct contradiction to the scare stories about carbon dioxide being relentlessly pushed by the climate change alarmists, a scientific study published in Nature Climate Change and highlighted by NASA reveals that rising carbon dioxide levels are having a tremendously positive impact on the re-greening of planet Earth over the last three decades, with some regions experiencing over a 50% increase in plant life.

The study, entitled, “Greening of the Earth and its drivers,” used satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth across the globe from 1982 – 2015. Published in 2016, this study found that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes “fertilization” of plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased “greening” across every Earth continent. As the study abstract explains:

We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area… Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend…

In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70% of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists. The more CO2 we release into the atmosphere, the more nutrients are available for plants, and the more rapidly the Earth is re-greened.

In direct contradiction to the real science on the greening benefits of carbon dioxide, Democrats routinely and mindlessly claim that carbon dioxide is a poisonous “pollutant” that will destroy the world. The anti-knowledge of lunatic Democrats demonstrates the extreme dangers of those who are scientifically illiterate yet spout “science” as their justification for demanding radical interventions in atmospheric chemistry.

In truth, rising levels of carbon dioxide will cause the following beneficial effects on Earth:

Reforestation due to Earth moving toward a warmer, wetter, more greenhouse-like environment
Acceleration of food production among food crops
An increase in the biodiversity of rainforests
Increased rainfall across Earth’s continents
The transformation of deserts into usable plains for grazing and agriculture
The acceleration of the greening of the planet, which is already far greener than it was 50 years ago

Deliberate Destabilization: DHS Releases Illegal Invaders With Tuberculosis, Other Diseases Into US

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: >>>/endpol/1138

What happened to the incubation periods at quarantine stations in Ellis Island? Why does coming here illegally exempt aliens from the laws on the books that make them inadmissible until we know they are not a threat?

On Sunday, Aaron Hull, chief patrol agent of the El Paso sector, divulged to the public what we already suspected but most government officials assiduously covered up. The head of the second busiest illegal immigration corridor told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is increasingly “caring for more and more sick people, because a lot of these aliens coming in are carrying contagious health conditions, things like chicken pox, scabies, tuberculosis, lice.”

Tuberculosis. That is the disease we sought to eradicate through our laws as early as 1907 by requiring every prospective immigrant to wait at Ellis Island, away from the population, until they got the green light to enter. That is a far cry from what a CBP official told me two weeks ago – that “we have not seen any specific, unusual, or alarming public health or infectious disease threats in persons in CBP custody.”

CBP declined to comment further on Hull’s revelation upon my request.

If border agents have confirmed the arrival of illegal aliens with tuberculosis who have not been treated in hospitals, what about all those exposed to it in close quarters who did not yet exhibit symptoms and were released within hours of apprehension? Unlike in the past, where illegal immigrants waited for days in ICE facilities before either being deported or released, CBP is directly releasing thousands of aliens into the interior within hours. A bunch of illegal aliens caught in Arizona and El Paso this past month were released in Tucson.

It is simply inconceivable that this is not a priority threat to the American people. IT IS! It is certainly a violation of current immigration law. The law (8. U.S.C. §1182(a)(1)(A)(i)-(ii)) states clearly that any alien “who has failed to present documentation of having received vaccination against vaccine-preventable diseases, which shall include at least the following diseases: mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, pertussis, influenza type B and hepatitis B, and any other vaccinations against vaccine-preventable diseases” are inadmissible. Moreover, 8 U.S.C. § 1222(a) requires the government to detain them “for a sufficient time to enable the immigration officers and medical officers to subject such aliens to observation and an examination sufficient to determine whether or not they belong to inadmissible classes.”

DHS officials, including the current acting DHS secretary, have testified that these people have largely never “received immunizations.”

Where are the pro-vaxxers NOW!?

Attempted ZOG-US Backed Coup d'etát in Venezuela Happening Right NOW

A military base in Caracas, called la Carlota, has rebelled against the Maduro goverment and are now being commanded by Juan Guaidó.

https://venezuela.liveuamap.com/

Self-declared Venezuelan ‘interim president’ Juan Guaido has called for a military uprising in a video shot at a Caracas airbase, accompanied by a number of soldiers and detained activist Leopoldo Lopez.

The moment has come to “start the end of the usurpation,” Guaido said in the video, flanked by heavily-armed soldiers and an armored vehicle. According to him, the speech was made at the Generalissimo Francisco de Miranda Air Base in Caracas, commonly known as ‘La Carlota’.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez, meanwhile, blasted Guaido’s move as “a coup with the aims to flood the country with violence.”

The army “stands firm in defense of the National Constitution and the legitimate authorities,” he said, adding that the military units all across Venezuela are staying at their bases and remain loyal to their commanders.

Around 50 countries globally, including the US, have recognized Guaido's 'interim presidency'. He has argued that Maduro's 2018 re-election was illegitimate, and in recent weeks has stepped up pressure on Maduro to step down. In response, Maduro's government has stripped Guaido of his parliamentary immunity and barred him from leaving the country.

Bolivian President Evo Morales decried the “coup”, writing on Twitter: “We strongly condemn the coup attempt in #Venezuela, by the right wing that is submissive to foreign interests.” President Maduro retweeted the note of support on Tuesday morning.

President Morales added: “The United States with its interference and promoting coups seeks to provoke violence and death in #Venezuela, it does not care about human losses, only its interests. We must be vigilant and united so that the coup plotters never return to our region.”

Wealthy Elites Suddenly Freak Out When Homeless People Show Up In Their Neighborhoods

The elite are very “tolerant” of the homeless until they start showing up in their own neighborhoods. Even though the mainstream media keeps telling us that the U.S. economy is “booming”, the number of Americans living on the streets continues to grow very rapidly, and this is particularly true in our major west coast cities. More than half a million Americans will sleep on the streets of our cities tonight, and they need help, care and shelter. Sadly, as economic conditions deteriorate that number is likely to double or even triple. Of course many among the elite are all in favor of doing something for the homeless, as long as they don’t have to be anywhere around them.

For example, let’s talk about what is going on in Los Angeles. No city on the west coast has a bigger problem with homelessness than L.A. does, and many in the homeless population enjoy camping out on the beautiful beaches in the L.A. area at night.

But of course many of the elite that paid millions of dollars for beachfront property are not too thrilled about this. Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten was a key symbol of anti-establishment rebellion in the 1970s, but now he is freaking out because homeless people are making life very difficult for him and his wife in Venice Beach, and what he recently told Newsweek’s Paula Froelich is making headlines all over the nation…

He told her the homeless situation in his swanky LA neighborhood is so bad that thieves are tearing the bars from the windows of his multimillion-dollar home, lobbing bricks, setting up unsightly tent cities and littering the beach with syringes.

“A couple of weeks ago I had a problem,” the former punk prince opined. “They came over the gate and put their tent inside, right in front of the front door. It’s like . . . the audacity. And if you complain, what are you? Oh, one of the establishment elite? No, I’m a bloke that’s worked hard for his money and I expect to be able to use my own front door.”

It is more than just a little bit ironic that a man that used drugs, sex and rock and roll to shoot to global fame now sounds like a tired old crank that just wants to get the hippies off of his front lawn.

And he also says that the beach in front of his home is almost unusable because of all the needles and human poop in the sand…

Rotten added of the punks: “They’re aggressive, and because there’s an awful lot of them together they’re gang-y. And the heroin spikes . . . You can’t take anyone to the beach because there’s jabs just waiting for young kids to put their feet in — and poo all over the sand.”

In Los Angeles, the number of homeless people that have died has risen 76 percentover the past five years, and this has happened during supposedly “good economic times”.

Up the coast in San Fransisco, some wealthy residents are fighting tooth and nail to keep a proposed homeless shelter out of their wealthy neighborhood. The following comes from CBS News…

Some San Francisco residents are turning to crowdfunding to raise money to fight a proposed homeless shelter in their wealthy neighborhood. As of Monday morning, the effort had raised over $80,000 of its $100,000 goal.

So much for finding the "American Dream" in Commiefornia.

ONCE AGAIN, Govt-Tech Firms' 'Smart' Databases Full Of Consumers' Private Info HACKED

BEWARE THE INTERNET OF SHIT!

In a blow to consumers' privacy, the addresses and demographic details of more than 80 million US households were exposed on an unsecured database stored on the cloud, independent security researchers have found.

The details included names, ages and genders as well as income levels and marital status. The researchers, led by Noam Rotem and Ran Locar, were unable to identify the owner of the database, which until Monday was online and required no password to access. Some of the information was coded, like gender, marital status and income level. Names, ages and addresses were not coded.

The data didn't include payment information or Social Security numbers. The 80 million households affected make up well over half of the households in the US, according to Statista.

"I wouldn't like my data to be exposed like this," Rotem said in an interview with CNET. "It should not be there."

Rotem and his team verified the accuracy of some data in the cache but didn't download the data to minimize the invasion of privacy of those listed, he said.

It's one more example of a widespread problem with cloud data storage, which has revolutionized how we store valuable information. Many organizations don't have the expertise to secure the data they keep on internet-connected servers, resulting in repeated exposures of sensitive data. Earlier in April, a researcher revealed that patient information from drug addiction treatment centers was exposed on an unsecured database. Another researcher found a giant cache of Facebook user data stored by third-party companies on another database that was publicly visible.

"I wouldn't like my data to be exposed like this. It should not be there."

IRS Grants Satanic Temple Tax-Exempt Status After Years of Blocking Conservative Christian Groups

The IRS has officially recognized the Satanic Temple as a “church,” meaning it now enjoys a tax-exempt status. Just more proof the USSA is in rapid moral decline.

For years the IRS blocked tax-exempt status for conservative groups, which directly impacted the 2012 presidential election.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports:
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/04/irs-gives-satanic-temple-tax-exempt-status-but-blocked-conservative-and-pro-america-groups-for-years/

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
5 pro-Israel groups
Constitutional groups
Groups that criticized Obama regime
At least two pro-life groups
An 83 year-old German slave labor camp survivor
A 180 year-old Baptist paper
A Texas voting-rights group
A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
Conservative activists and businesses
At least one conservative Hispanic group
IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were Conservative

Now this…

The IRS gave the Satanic Temple tax-exempt status: https://www.foxnews.com/us/satanic-temple-irs-has-designated-it-a-tax-exempt-church

Good! Indiana Abolishes State Fees For Gun Ownership, Legal Reimbursements For Self-Defense Cases

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) applauds Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb for signing into law a comprehensive gun rights bill that will make it easier for law-abiding Hoosiers to defend themselves. Gov. Holcomb signed the bill into law on the stage of the NRA-ILA's Leadership Forum at the Indiana Convention Center - Lucas Oil Stadium.

Lawmakers amended HB 1284, introduced by Rep. Jim Lucas, to include important self-defense protection from HB 1643, introduced by Rep. Ben Smaltz.

The new law expands self-defense options in the following ways:

Eliminates state fees for a new five-year state License to Carry a Handgun (LTCH);
Allows law-abiding gun owners greater ability to carry for self-protection in churches;
Allows gun owners to register to vote when they apply for a LTCH.

“Under this new law, honest, hard-working gun owners will no longer be forced to pay $125 to exercise a fundamental right that ought to be free,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA executive director. “This law ends this abuse and ensures that the most vulnerable gun owners are able to protect themselves without worrying about the cost of a license.”

Additionally, the new law provides greater protection to gun owners. Previously, an undue burden was on the defendant in exercising the right to self-defense. Under the new law, that burden is shifted. In addition, a person who acts in self-defense and is later forced to defend themselves a second time in court can be reimbursed for the legal fees associated with their defense.

Total Collapse of Civilization Guaranteed

BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/IoKi1

The complete collapse of civilization around the world is well on its way, whether accelerationism occurs or not.

The writing is already on the wall…

1. Drug addiction at record levels all over the world.
2. Depression and suicide at highest levels ever seen around the globe.
3. The U.S. is 20+ trillion in debt and many other nations are also heavily in debt.
4. As inflation increases and wages remain stagnant, fewer people can buy products or services, which will further hurt economies around the world.
5. Radicalization is increasing rapidly. The explosion of white nationalism, leftwing radicals, islamic terrorism, and other radical movements are a symptom of civilizational distress.
6. The dramatic explosion of homosexuality, transgenderism, and a whole plethora of "mental disease" at levels never before seen or imagined in all of human history.
7. The government & corporations beginning to clamp down on free speech, firearms, and other freedoms in order to contain the acceleration toward collapse.
8. Mass immigration - People fleeing other parts of the world in large numbers where collapse is already in progress, or simply moving to a new country to get free gibs which will only help to collapse that nation as well.
9. Morals and values going down the toilet. People are losing faith in law & order, religion, and their government. There is no longer a "communitiy" to enforce morals & decency.
10. The past 200 years have given us the most destructive wars in human history, the highest crime rates, and the worst genocides. This is a symptom of civilization having gone past its peak, and it is now racing downhill toward inevitable collapse.
11. The dramatic increase in distraction entertainment to keep people's minds off the slow unraveling of human civilization.
12. The world's oceans are becoming more acidic due to human pollution, along with islands of plastic floating around the pacific ocean.
13. An explosion of chronic diseases in the past few decades which has astronomically raised healthcare costs – An unhealthy populace, costing western nations billions upon billions every year.
14. Femininity is disappearing as women are forced to be wage slaves, and brainwashed to be "strong and independent".
15. Masculinity is disappearing as young boys are taught that traditional masculinity is "toxic". Being faggy is the new norm.

If you haven't already trained yourself to be a hunter-gatherer, then now might be a good time to learn how to live like a real human being.

Good! Trump Announces Withdrawal From Unconstitutional UN Small Arms Treaty

During his speech at the annual NRA convention Friday, President Trump officially signed the order to withdraw the USA from the United Nations “small arms treaty.”

“Under my Administration, we will never surrender American sovereignty to anyone. We will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedoms. And that is why my Administration will never ratify the UN Arms Trade Treaty” he announced to the raucous crowd.

[NOTE: Any rational sane government should never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on their domestic affairs!]

In addition to the NRA, several other organizations, such as Gun Owners of America and National Association For Gun Rights, sounded the alarm over the treaty when it was first proposed:

The most comprehensive treaty of its kind, the ATT would regulate weapons trade throughout the world on everything from battleships to bullets.

And as information trickles out of Turtle Bay in New York City, it is obvious the UN is getting more clever about taking the focus off of “small arms.”

With an eye cast in the direction of the U.S.—in particular, toward the U.S. Senate which must ratify the treaty—the most recent Draft Paper for the Arms Trade Treaty recognizes in its preamble “the sovereign right of States to determine any regulation of internal transfers of arms and national ownership exclusively within their territory, including through national constitutional protections on private ownership.”

That statement, taken by itself, is troubling. Americans’ right to keep and bear arms exists whether or not it is “recognized” by some UN committee. The right enshrined in the Second Amendment predates our own Constitution, and does not need an international stamp of approval.

But the preamble aside, the scope of the treaty is what’s most damaging. Though negotiations will continue for another year, some provisions are certain to be contained in the final draft.

The treaty had been signed by Obama several years ago, but it was never ratified by the Senate.

Commie New York Government To Regulate Red Meat, A Violation of Consumers Choice

New York City's recently-approved "Green New Deal" (not to be confused with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's environmental wish-list) will slash the amount of red meat served in municipally-run facilities by half in order to combat 'climate change' [read: geo-engineering!], according to Breitbart's Josh Caplan.

Excuse me, but isn't capitalism all about consumer choice, supply and demand?

The $14 billion "Green New Deal" will phase out purchases of processed meats in city-run schools, hospitals and correctional facilities by 2040, amid an overall cut in purchases of 50 percent. New York would be the first city in the world to adopt such a policy, and was announced after New York Schools adopted "Meatless Monday" in an effort to encourage the consumption of less meat.

De Blasio (D) said on Monday during the Green New Deal announcement on Monday that he also plans to introduce a bill banning the construction of glass skyscrapers in an effort to reduce citywide greenhouse emissions by 30%.

"We are going to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers, which are incredibly inefficient," said the Mayor on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' Monday morning.

As part of the Green New Deal, New York will power all of the city's operations with energy generated from clean sources, such as Canadian hydropower. The city is also rolling out the mandatory recycling of organics, congestion traffic pricing, and phasing out city-wide purchases of single-use plastic utensils.

The so-called "Green New Deal" - or Climate Mobilization Act, was passed last Thursday in a 45-2 vote.

Thousands Of Amazon Alexa Eavesdroppers Can Also Access Users' Home Addresses

Two weeks after we finally got confirmation what everyone had known for so long, namely that an internal Amazon team numbering in the thousands was secretly listening in to Alexa users’ commands without their prior knowledge, Bloomberg reported that the same team also has access to location data and can easily find a customer’s home address.

Citing five (supposedly former) employees familiar with the program, Bloomberg writes that the covert "Alexa team", which is spread across three continents, and transcribes, annotates and analyzes a portion of the voice recordings picked up by Alexa, "to help Amazon’s digital voice assistant get better at understanding and responding to commands", also has access to Alexa users’ geographic coordinates and can easily type them into third-party mapping software and find home residences, according to the employees (who signed nondisclosure agreements barring them from speaking publicly about the program, which apparently did not prevent them from speaking off the record with Bloomberg).

And while there has yet to be any evidence that Amazon employees have attempted to track down individual users, two members of the Alexa team who seem to have grown a coscience, expressed concern that Amazon which is fast becoming the world's biggest monopoly across virtually every industry, was granting unnecessarily broad access to customer data that would make it easy to identify a device’s owner.

“Anytime someone is collecting where you are, that means it could go to someone else who could find you when you don’t want to be found,” said Lindsey Barrett, a staff attorney and teaching fellow at Georgetown Law’s Communications and Technology Clinic, who noted that location data is more sensitive than many other categories of user information. Widespread access to location data associated with Alexa user recordings “would set up a big red flag for me.”

What is more troubling is that Amazon appears to continue to lie when its spying ways were exposed: in an April 10 statement acknowledging the Alexa auditing program, Amazon said “employees do not have direct access to information that can identify the person or account as part of this workflow.”

Now that that was disproven, Amazon issued a new statement to Bloomberg, saying that “access to internal tools is highly controlled, and is only granted to a limited number of employees who require these tools to train and improve the service by processing an extremely small sample of interactions. Our policies strictly prohibit employee access to or use of customer data for any other reason, and we have a zero tolerance policy for abuse of our systems. We regularly audit employee access to internal tools and limit access whenever and wherever possible.”

Quite a change from "employees do not have access to information that can identify the person" and in less than 2 weeks at that...

What is even more troubling is that Amazon’s Alexa Data Services team, which manages and supervises the countless recordings of human speech and other data that helps train the voice software, numbers in the thousands of employees and contractors, spread across work sites from Boston to Romania and India. And while Amazon does not explicitly identify the user whom it is recording, it also collects location data so Alexa can more accurately answer requests, for example suggesting a local restaurant or giving the weather in nearby Ashland, Oregon, instead of distant Ashland, Michigan.

‘Shocking turn of events’: Three owners of Winnipeg restaurant charged with faking "anti-Semitic attack"

What was first believed to be a possible anti-Semitic attack against a Jewish-owned cafe turns out to have been staged by the three owners of the Corydon Avenue restaurant, Winnipeg police say. All three owners were arrested and charged with public mischief after investigators determined there was evidence of a crime at BerMax Caffe and Bistro, just not one that was hate-fuelled. “I am hugely disappointed and, frankly, angry that this family has used hate and racism in such a disingenuous way,” Winnipeg police chief Danny Smyth said. “In doing so, they have allowed cynicism to creep into this discussion. Cynicism that trivializes genuine victims of hate. Cynicism that risks reinforcing stereotypes that the Jewish community here locally, and throughout the world, have fought hard to dispel.”

BerMax reported a robbery at their location in the 1800 block of Corydon last Thursday. Police said the place had been trashed, a woman had been sent to hospital and anti-Semitic graffiti had been painted throughout the restaurant. Smyth said he had no indication of a motive on Wednesday. Const. Rob Carver said during a press conference last week that he had never seen a hate crime incident quite like this one. Carver said the restaurant had been targeted before. On Wednesday, Smyth couldn’t say with certainty if the owners carried out those crimes, too, but said there’s a probability they did. Smyth said Wednesday that the injured woman was one of the owners.

“I don’t believe the injuries were significant,” Smyth said. The robbery came on the eve of Passover in the Jewish religion. Elaine Goldstein, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, said her mouth dropped when she heard of the attack last week. In a prepared statement on Wednesday, the federation said they are alarmed at the alleged incident that police uncovered. “We are shocked and deeply disturbed by today’s news,” the statement read. [Pathetic jew ass kissing quotes omitted] B’nai Brith Canada said they were deeply disturbed by the news they called a “truly shocking turn of events. If the allegations of a fabrication of a hate crime are true, we condemn this in the strongest possible way,” said chief communications and media relations officer, Marty York. “False complaints of antisemitism are both illegal and harm the efforts of human rights organizations to combat racism, discrimination and hatred.”

Investigators poured more than 1,000 hours into the investigation over the holiday weekend as police tried to piece together the puzzle, Smyth said. “We treated this and took it seriously at face value, and I suspect we will do that in the future as well,” Smyth said. “Hence my disappointment that someone would use this type of hate and racism for God knows what purpose here.” Smyth said a combination of video surveillance, forensic evidence and interviews that led investigators to the conclusion they made. Alexander Berent, 56, Oxana Berent, 48, and Maxim Berent, 29, have been released on a promise to appear. They are scheduled to be in court later in May. Documents obtained by the Sun show the owners attempted to sell off the business. It been listed for sale on Oct. 18, 2018 and stayed on the market for 142 days until early March before the listing expired. The documents also show a separate sale listing that ran for 90 days beginning in December 2017.

Federal Judge Strikes Down Texas Anti-BDS Law For Violating the First Amendment

A federal judge in Texas ruled that a law that prohibits state contractors from boycotting Israel violates the First Amendment. Bahai Amawi, a U.S. citizen of Palestinian descent, worked as an independent contractor for a school district in Austin, Texas for nine years. Last year, when her contract came up for renewal, it contained a clause that said she wouldn’t boycott Israel. Texas is one of 25 states that have passed laws requiring state agencies to not do business with companies that support the BDS movement—boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel. The movement, which is modeled on the South African anti-apartheid movement, rose in response to Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories and the country’s treatment of Palestinians.

When Amawi, who works as a speech pathologist, refused to sign the contract, the school district terminated her services. Amawi filed suit in December 2018 against the Pflugerville Independent School District and Ken Paxton, the Texas Attorney General. While the state of Texas argued that ““[b]oycotting is plainly not speech,” Judge Robert Pittman, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas Austin Division, begged to differ. Citing a landmark Supreme Court decision, NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware Co., the judge wrote,“The Court went on to hold that the NAACP’s ‘boycott clearly involved constitutionally protected activity,’ and that the State’s ‘broad power to regulate economic activity’ ‘could not justify a complete prohibition against a nonviolent, politically motivated boycott designed to force governmental and economic change’.”

Pittman also addressed the plaintiffs’ challenge to the Texas anti-BDS law on the grounds that it constitutes viewpoint and content discrimination. He sided with the plaintiffs, writing, “It is a content- and viewpoint-based restriction on speech. It is a content-based restriction because it singles out speech about Israel, not any other country. And it is a viewpoint-based restriction because it targets only speech ‘intended to penalize, inflict harm on, or limit commercial relations specifically with Israel, or with a person or entity doing business in Israel or in an Israeli-controlled territory’.”

Finally, citing the 1994 Supreme Court case, Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. v. FCC, which dealt with must-carry requirements imposed on cable television, Pittman wrote: “The statute threatens ‘to suppress unpopular ideas’ and ‘manipulate the public debate through coercion rather than persuasion.’ This the First Amendment does not allow.” This is the third time in the past year that a federal judge has struck down legislation forcing people and companies to sign pro-Israel agreements. A federal judge in Kansas ruled that a state law requiring contractors to sign a no-boycott certification violated free speech, and a federal judge in Arizona ruled that the state couldn’t require companies to sign a pledge saying they weren’t boycotting Israel.

Remember Venezuela? Hypocritical Texas Cuckservatives Pushing For State-run Oil Industry

The Trump administration continues to oppose a Texas energy bill that would stifle competition, raise prices, and run counter to President Trump’s America First energy policy.

The Texas Senate passed SB 1938 on April 17 unanimously, 31-0, and the legislation will go to the Texas House for consideration.

The legislation would require that non-incumbent energy companies obtain permission from the state before it could offer electricity to Texans. Many scholars and experts, including the Trump administration, worry the legislation would entrench incumbent companies and stifle competition.

The Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) has raised questions about the legislation, contending the bill would “limit competition, thereby potentially raising prices and lowering the quality of service for electricity consumers.”

One former Trump administration official called the legislation the “antithesis” of Trump’s America First energy policy and blamed Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick for failing to stop the legislation in the Texas Senate.

A former Trump administration official told Breitbart News, “This legislation is the antithesis of President Trump’s free-market oriented America First energy agenda. It’s crony capitalism, pure and simple and Lt. Gov. Patrick should be ashamed of himself for not fighting to put a stop to it in the State Senate.”

The legislation strikes a contrast against President Trump’s America First energy policy, which promotes competition in the energy markets and provides lower energy prices for the average American.

Allen Johnson, president of Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW), said the legislation would protect “incumbent energy companies at the expense of consumers.”

New Censorship-resistant Video Platform Rolling Out In June

https://archive.fo/Sh6wr (New Youtube Platform For Conservatives Announced, Real.Video)
https://archive.fo/Gf9Nr (Youtube Alternative, Real.Video, Ready To Launch Within 60 Days)
https://archive.fo/MYZ5S (Those Who Have Been Banned From Youtube Now Have An Alternative To Post Their Videos)

This is a tech update on Brighteon.com, the YouTube alternative video platform that dares to respect free speech. If you’ve been following Brighteon news, you may already know that the video platform was threatened with being de-platformed by upstream infrastructure providers in the aftermath of the New Zealand mass shooting (which was, of course, engineered to set off a global religious war against Christians as we’ve now seen with the Sri Lanka bombings, but that’s another story altogether).

Because of the extreme censorship threats against Brighteon, we were forced to delete videos that showed footage from the Christchurch shootings. Otherwise, the entire video platform was going to be annihilated and we would have lost the ability to host any videos at all. Even now, some ISPs in Australia and New Zealand have completely banned all videos from Brighteon.

Even as that was happening, we were already well into the R&D effort to rebuild our platform to make it more resistant to censorship threats. I’m happy to report that we are now approaching the completion of that effort, and the rolling out of Brighteon 2.0 is scheduled to take place in early June.

This new infrastructure is already functioning in all the ways necessary for hosting a video site:

Video uploading and transcoding into multiple bitrate renditions
Video storage that’s affordable (our new solution saves us 90% compared to our previous costs)
Video playback across multiple devices and browsers

All of this is now working internally, and it’s going to be rolled out soon as part of Brighteon 2.0.

Once this new infrastructure is rolled out, we will be able to lift restrictions on content which is currently not allowed. For example, the Christchurch shooting video footage — which is historically important for researchers to view because of all the anomalies contained in the footage — will once again be able to be posted.

We will also be lifting the current ban on video game footage, which we had previously disallowed due to the very high storage costs that were causing us to lose a considerable amount of money each month. Now, with a 90% reduction in storage costs, we will once again be able to host videos which otherwise would not have been financially feasible.

Here’s the biggest news in all this: We will be announcing Twitter-like functionality on Brighteon.com later this year, transforming the video platform into a social media platform with video capabilities.

This new feature set will allow all account owners to not only post videos, but also to post short text messages containing hyperlinks.

Users who follow specific channels will see all text messages and new videos from those channels on their own Brighteon home pages. In other words, when a user logs in, they will see their personalized “wall” of new content, populated from the channels they are following. That content will consist of new videos, and new text messages.

Importantly, there will be no shadowbanning, EVER.

Sign up now at Brighteon.com to reserve your channel name (it’s free to join). You can begin posting videos immediately, or you can just reserve your account and sit on it until we launch our social media features later this year:

Baltimore Mayor Pugh On The Run After FBI Raids Her Offices And Home Over Corruption

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) has gone missing after the FBI and IRS raided her home, according to Baltimore CBS affiliate WJZ.

Jason Bentley, Pugh's spokesman, told the Associated Press on Thursday that he has no clue where the Mayor is, while her defense attorney, Steve Silverman, routed calls to voicemail.

According to the report, "Pugh was at her home when the raid began, but has since left the state."

Pugh was asked to resign by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan shortly after the raids.

"Today, agents for the FBI and the IRS executed search warrants at the mayor’s homes and offices," said Hogan. "Now, more than ever, Baltimore city needs strong and responsible leadership. Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead. For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign."

Neighbors say they haven't seen her in weeks. Others were devastated at news of the raid.

This is Michelle Hopkins from Park Heights. She is fed up with the headlines at City Hall and, in her words, devastated by the news of today’s FBI raids. #WJZ pic.twitter.com/V1DOJPKj1m

— Devin Bartolotta (@WJZDevin) April 25, 2019

The city is now into the fourth week of Pugh on indefinite leave and silence is surrounding Baltimore’s top offices. Pugh’s aides have gone silent on status updates, declining to comment on her health this week- as questions linger on when, or if, she plans to return to work.

Last Friday her spokesman said she is recovering from pneumonia and plans to return to work.

Meanwhile, dominos continue to fall inside Baltimore City Hall on Tuesday, as acting Mayor Jack Young stayed tight-lipped on his recent decision to place a seventh Pugh staffer on leave of absence. -WJZ

Deliberate Destabilization: US Taxpayers Foot $5 Billion For Annual Illegal Immigrant Births

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: >>>/endpol/1138

Hidden in every federal budget, and unknown to 99 percent of Americans, your two U.S. Senators and House member use your money to pay for millions of legal and illegal immigrants flooding into America annually.

"Massive and increasing costs to taxpayers are incurred, now at $330 billion per year NET of Taxes Immigrants Pay, as each Birth Cohort Matures. Mass Immigration proves costly," said David Durham.

"Of the Many Costs of mass Immigration borne by U.S. Taxpayers, the Costs of Immigrant Births alone (via Medicaid or the Uninsured) is remarkable. Specifically, 1 in 5 births in the U.S. are to Immigrant Mothers. U.S. Taxpayers pay for 67% of births to illegal immigrants, 47% of births to legal immigrants according to a new report by www.CIS.org, Dr. Steven Camarota, Director of Research, 10/9/18."

Just think about all the money being wasted, it could be used to feed and house millions of Americans in need of financial aid.

"Based on an analysis of Census Bureau data, the Center estimates that nationally one in 13 births is to an illegal immigrant, totaling 300,000 births a year. One in eight births is to a legal immigrant. We also find that more than half of the births to immigrants (legal and illegal) are paid for by taxpayers, including 67 percent of births to illegal immigrants."

"Steven Camarota, the Center's Director of Research and co-author of the report, said, "The enormous number of births to legal and illegal immigrants may hinder assimilation as children from immigrant families will largely interact with only each other."

He also points out that "paying for so many births to immigrant mothers may be appropriate, but the large share who can't provide for themselves without the help of American taxpayers raises serious questions about whether our current immigration system makes sense."

Given that Demography is Destiny, consider that since the aforementioned facts are for one year only, what the costs and demographic consequences will be for each year projected into the future unless BALANCE's Solution is implemented. Consider further that Taxpayer- and Immigrant-Funded Immigrant Births total 791,000 per year.

That legal immigrants accounted for 12.4 percent (494,000) of all births annually and illegal immigrants accounted for 7.5 percent (297,000) annually.

The 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants are more than the total number of births to all mothers in any state except California and Texas. They are also more than the total number of births in 16 states combined, plus the District of Columbia.

More than half (54 percent) of births to immigrants (legal and illegal) are entirely or largely paid for by taxpayers because the mother is on Medicaid or uninsured.

Illegal immigrants account for 11 percent (198,000) of all publicly funded births, and legal immigrants are another 13 percent (231,000).

We roughly estimate that the annual cost to taxpayers for births to immigrants (legal and illegal) is $5.3 billion; $2.4 billion of which is for illegal immigrants.

WOKE: CDC Admits HIV Is Exploding Among Transgender Women, Total Corporate Media Blackout

It used to be that AIDS was widely regarded as the “gay disease.” But now it’s a transgender disease as well, with new data published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showing that an astounding one in seven transgender “women” are infected with HIV.

According to a CDC “Dear Colleague” letter, of the 14 percent of transgender “women” that are disease-ridden, the vast majority are either African American / black (44 percent) or Hispanic / Latina (26 percent). Conversely, only three percent of transgender “men” have HIV, the letter further reveals.

As to why these transgenders have disproportionately higher rates of HIV and AIDS, it has nothing to do with their sexual perversion and promiscuity, claims the CDC. No, it’s supposedly because transgender people “face obstacles that make it harder to access HIV services – such as stigma and discrimination, inadequate employment or housing, and limited access to welcoming, supportive health care.”

“Addressing these barriers is essential to the health and well-being of transgender people and to meeting the goals of the proposed federal initiative Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America,” the CDC letter goes on to claim.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is committed to working with you to make sure all transgender people can get the tools they need to prevent HIV and stay healthy if they have HIV.”

Not at all surprising is the fact that the mainstream media is nowhere to be found in reporting on the horrific disease trends among transgenders, instead offering the same silence that was also given to data showing that anal cancer is rampant among homosexual men.

“Transgender women and men are at high risk for getting HIV,” the CDC clearly states in its letter, which was signed by Dr. Eugene McCray, M.D., and Jonathan H. Mermin, M.D., M.P.H., both from the agency’s National Center for HIV / AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention.

At the same time that the CDC published this information, the World Health Organization (((WHO))) announced that individuals who claim to be transgenders shouldn’t be classified as suffering from a mental illness.

Big Pharma CEO Arrested For Narcotics Trafficking

The former CEO of the nation's sixth-largest pharmaceutical distributor was perp-walked in handcuffs on Tuesday after he was indicted on two counts of criminal conspiracy related to drug trafficking in opioids.

75-year-old Laurence Doud III became the first pharma CEO in the United States to face prosecution linked to the opioid crisis, after he was accused along with another company executive of ignoring red flags while pushing massive hauls of powerful painkillers to pharmacies across the United States, reports ABC News. Doud faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted.

CEO CHARGED: Federal prosecutors charged Rochester Drug Cooperative, one of the nation's largest opioid distributors, and two of its former executives Tuesday, with the company's former chief executive Laurence Doud III being taken into DEA custody. https://t.co/YiCUoIQCit pic.twitter.com/i12pP0NQwj

— World News Tonight (@ABCWorldNews) April 23, 2019

"This prosecution is the first of its kind: executives of a pharmaceutical distributor and the distributor itself have been charged with drug trafficking, trafficking the same drugs that are fueling the opioid epidemic that is ravaging this country. Our Office will do everything in its power to combat this epidemic, from street-level dealers to the executives who illegally distribute drugs from their boardrooms," said US Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman in a statement.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York charged Rochester Drug Cooperative (RDC), one of the country's largest distributors of opioids, with "knowingly and intentionally" violating federal narcotics laws "by distributing dangerous, highly addictive opioids to pharmacy customers that it knew were being sold and used illicitly," according to a press release.

RDC was also charged with failing to properly report thousands of suspicious orders of oxycodone, fentanyl and other controlled substances to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), officials said -ABC News

Doud reportedly encouraged his sales team to sign new pharmacies up as customers with virtually no oversight or background investigations - picking up competitors' rejects as he pitched RDC as "the knight in shining armor" for independent pharmacies, according to the indictment.

Such Good! Illinois Judge Finds FOID Card Unconstitutional!

In February 2018, a White County, IL Second Judicial Circuit Court judge ruled Illinois Firearms Owners Identification Card Act unconstitutional. Eight months later, after pleadings and motions to reconsider the initial decision, the judge not only reaffirmed his original decision, but supplemented it. Now, IllinoisCarry.com’s spokeswoman Valinda Rowe claims that the Illinois Attorney General will take the case to the Illinois Supreme Court.

Valinda Rowe posted the news at Illinois Carry last week and Ace of Spades picked up the story this weekend buried among the Mueller report coverage.

The case began with the March 2017 arrest of a now-divorced, 4′ 11″ fifty-something woman for the high crime of possessing a single-shot .22 rifle for self-defense. Obviously, she’s not exactly Bonnie Parker of Bonnie and Clyde fame. She failed to have a FOID card for her rifle, despite eligibility to receive one. In February 2018, a White County judge ruled the FOID Act unconstitutional.

And now, according to Valinda Rowe, the case is headed to the Illinois Supreme Court thanks to Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul.

This comes on the heels of the Illinois Supreme Court unanimous ruling that Illinois’ prohibition on TASERS/stun guns is unconstitutional.

As an Illinois resident, I can’t begin to describe how big this case might become. If the Illinois Supreme Court rules the FOID Act unconstitutional, expect Illinois Democrats to proclaim the sky is falling. In reality, given how FOID Act violations so seldom get charged by prosecutors (and even when they do charge, they’re quickly plea-bargained away), a decision to strike down the FOID Act as unconstitutional wouldn’t pose a meaningful obstacle for police and prosecutors.

Masonic Lodge Busted By Police, 27 Politicians and High Level Officials Arrested

Police have arrested 27 people during a raid on a Masonic Lodge involved in illegal activities, including corruption and interfering in politics and the judicial system, according to local reports.

Numerous local politicians, officials and police officers turned out to be connected to the notoriously secretive Masonic Lodge’s activities, adding weight to claims that Freemasonry exerts control over politics.

According to police, the Masonic Lodge in Trapani, Sicily, is involved in corruption, bribery, drug trafficking, embezzlement, and interfering with the work of the judicial system.

Among those arrested in the course of the operation named “Artemisia” were former and present politicians, officials, including a former federal lawmaker and a former mayor of Castelvetrano commune, and even police officers, according to Giornale di Sicilia.

Sputnik report:
https://sputniknews.com/europe/201903211073422158-masonic-lodge-busted/

They now face charges of committing crimes against the local administration, justice system, and for organising a crime syndicate. The lodge reportedly had great influence over the local government and influenced the distribution of its budget.

Its members also allegedly managed to obtain secret information about ongoing investigations and influence them by tampering with evidence.

The group was reportedly also involved in a number of other illegal undertakings, including drug trafficking, bribery, fraud, and embezzlement.

Life Under Communism: Cuban Couple Gets 2 Years in Jail For Homeschooling

The Cuban communist regime sentenced Evangelical Pastor Ramón Rigal to two years in prison – and his wife Ayda Expósito to a year and half – on Monday for homeschooling their children, less than a week after their arrest for promoting the practice.

“The family … were given 30 minutes notice before the trial began on 18 April, and went on throughout the afternoon but was then suspended until Monday 22 April,” the aid group Christian Solidarity Worldwide said in a report on their story this week.

Homeschooling is illegal in Cuba, as it is considered a “capitalist” practice and prevents the state from indoctrinating children in Marxist atheism in public schools. Rigal has been homeschooling his children for years, forcing him into consistent confrontations with the Castro regime, and began helping other Christian families homeschool following his arrest in 2017.

The couple, from Guantánamo, faced a summary judgment on their case on Monday, according to the Miami-based Radio Martí. The presiding judge found them guilty of “illicit assembly and incitement to delinquency” for meeting with other families to teach them how to homeschool and “acts contrary to the normal development of minors.”

Martí and Diario de Cuba, a Spanish newspaper, both reported that Cuban state security aggressively prevented friends and family from attending the sentencing. Their oldest daughter, 13-year-old Ruth, confirmed to both outlets that police blocked her from entering the courthouse.

“That was embarrassing, it is shameful what they have done with our parents,” Ruth told Martí. “They took my mother and my father to prison and did not think of the kids, of us, that we are minors, that we need our mother and our father together.”

“They punched me in the mouth, my shirt is bloody, and I am detained here now, I don’t know why,” Quiñones told Martí reporter Tomás Cardoso briefly before police confiscated his phone. At press time the lawyer remains in police custody.

The Rigal Espósito family has a right of appeal, though dissidents rarely have their sentences overturned without significant international pressure. Global outrage is precisely what saved them following their initial decision to homeschool in 2017, using a system sent to them in CD and print form by a Christian school in Guatemala. At the time, the government revoked Rigal’s ability to preach as a pastor and sentenced him to a year of hard labor; Espósito received a one-year house arrest sentence.

Rigal described his sentence as “humiliating” while serving it but told Martí in 2017 the Christian faith warns of such punishment by repressors.

“You feel ashamed because they want to humble us, but that is the legacy that the Lord left us: that because of our faith and our principles we will suffer this,” he said.

One wonders if (((Gottfried))) will be censored or punished by Twitter for making such a hateful, bigoted, anti-Semitic statement? After all, making basic, easily provable, factual statements about Jewish power and influence in society is “anti-Semitic,” right?

Cool it with the anti Semetic remarks bro – everyone knows it’s a hateful, bigoted, White suprematist, anti Semitic trope to factually state that Jews run the world. https://t.co/nLKnxfgqLX

The Russian-China Polar Silk Road Challenges Global Geopolitics

Whether the Arctic will become a platform for cooperation or warfare has been a question often posed throughout the past 150 years.

As early as 1875, a vision for Eurasian-American cooperation was becoming realized as leading Americans and Russians alike foresaw the construction of telegraph and even rail lines across the 100 km Bering Strait crossing separating Russia from Alaska. Proponents of this policy on the American side included Lincoln-ally and Colorado’s 1st governor William Gilpin, whose book The Cosmopolitan Railway was published in 1890 showcasing a “post-imperial world” where mutual development was driven by rail lines across all the continents and featured the Bering Strait rail connection as its keystone. Many of Gilpin’s co-thinkers in Russia grew in influence and even convinced Tsar Nicholas II to endorse the project in 1905. The fact that the newly completed Trans-Siberian Railway was modelled on Lincoln’s Trans-Continental Railway and carried train cars built in Philadelphia made this concept very feasible in the minds of many people in those days… not excluding a British Empire that desperately wished to see this potential destroyed.

Although a few assassinations, a Russian revolution and Wall Street/London-funded wars disturbed this paradigm of cooperation from unfolding as it should have, hopes again ran high as Franklin Roosevelt and Stalin recognized that they had much more in common with each other than either did with the British Empire’s Winston Churchill. This partnership re-opened discussion for a Bering Strait rail connection during World War II after decades of dormancy. When FDR prematurely passed away in office and his leading American co-thinkers began to be targeted by the FBI-led “red scare”, Stalin ruminated that “the great dream had died”. Churchill’s Iron Curtain ushered in a new age of Mutual Assured Destruction whereby all talk of the Arctic as a domain of cooperation perished.

Despite efforts of certain leading figures such as John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert in America, or Enrico Mattei of Italy and Charles De Gaulle in France to establish cooperation between east and west, the growth of what has today come to be known as the “deep state” continued apace, with the creation of NATO, and technocratic infiltration of all western governments… often over the dead bodies of nationalist leaders.

While the west celebrated the collapse of Communism, and puppets like Sir Henry Kissinger and Sir George Bush ushered in the New World Order of NAFTA, NATO, the Eurozone, and WTO during the 1990s, a new alliance was forming, and soon the emergence of such institutions as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, BRICS, APEC, and later Eurasian Economic Union occurred.

TREASON! FBI Arrests Leader of Border Militia For Defending America From Deliberate Destabilization

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: >>>/endpol/1132

Police State USSA indeed. The FBI arrested the leader of a private militia group that detains invaders on the US-Mexico border Saturday for helping Border Patrol services defend American soil from invaders. The FBI is charging him with illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.

Larry Mitchell Hopkins, who also goes by Johnny Horton Jr. according to the FBI, is a member of the United Constitutional Patriots in New Mexico. The group posted images and video of its operations on its Facebook page; some of the videos show invaders being detained by armed members.

The arrest goes to prove the FBI holds extreme political bias against partriots and conservative Americans and this is an attempt to keep US borders completely unsafe during a crisis!

In response to the arrest, New Mexico’s attorney general, Hector Balderas, released a statement that bashed the patriotic militia for helping defend the borders, saying that America should become a third world shithole and Americans just 'deal with it.' What an absolute peice of shit!

Treason and contempt for America knows no bounds with domestic enemies who want to destabilize this nation creating crisis after crisis after crisis.

A spokesperson for United Constitutional Patriots said the group has detained 5,600 illegal invaders in the last two months, and said the group does nothing more than to support the Border Patrol.

Meanwhile, while the FBI is conducting their stings on innocent American patriots, Mexican troops are currently holding American troops hostage at gunpoint!

Oh yes, you read that correct! American troops were detained on US Soil by Mexican troops!

Mexican troops drew guns on two American soldiers standing on the U.S. side of the border earlier this month, defense officials say.

Military officials from the U.S. Northern Command said that “five to six Mexican military personnel questions two U.S. Army soldier who were conducting border support operations.”

The soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection vehicle near the southwest border in the vicinity of Clint, Texas.

Officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what seemed to be assault riffles. They drew their weapons when they saw the two U.S. soldiers and ordered the U.S. troops to return their weapons to a military vehicle. According to officials, the two Americans obliged “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”

“Throughout the incident, the U.S. soldiers followed all established procedures and protocols,” Northern Command said in a statement.

I bet the treasonous FBI and their Anti-American leftists are getting a big laugh out of this crisis, as they continue to help destroy this country!

SCAM ALERT: Electric Cars Emit More CO2 Than Diesel Vehicles, Study Finds

Electric cars in Germany are emitting more toxic CO2 than diesel vehicles, according to a new study.

By including the CO2 emissions from the production of batteries in electric cars, researchers at the Ifo Institute in Munich found that electric vehicles attribute 11% to 28% more CO2 than their diesel counterparts.

“Mining and processing the lithium, cobalt and manganese used for batteries consume a great deal of energy,” reported the Brussels Times. “A Tesla Model 3 battery, for example, represents between 11 and 15 tonnes of CO2.”

“Given a lifetime of 10 years and an annual travel distance of 15,000 kilometres, this translates into 73 to 98 grams of CO2 per kilometre, scientists Christoph Buchal, Hans-Dieter Karl and Hans-Werner Sinn noted in their study.”

Infowars.com reports:
https://www.infowars.com/study-electric-cars-emit-more-co2-than-diesel-vehicles/

Additionally, the study pointed out that it’s not just the production phase; charging the batteries of electric cars also produces more CO2 due to the increased production of energy required for charging.

That led to the study’s authors criticizing EU regulations that claim fleet emissions for electric vehicles start out at “zero” CO2.

The authors believe that methane-powered gasoline engines are worth looking into instead.

Federal Judge Rules Flint Residents Can Sue EPA Over Water Contamination Crisis

RELATED: https://archive.fo/D2AHB

As Flint, Michigan, marks five years since the city's deadly water crisis began, a federal judge ruled in favor of residents who want to sue the federal government for not acting promptly to ensure the city had clean drinking water.

Residents filed suit against the EPA in 2017, demanding $722 million in damages and arguing that the agency was able to inform the city that its drinking water was contaminated months before it finally issued an emergency order.

"These lies went on for months while the people of Flint continued to be poisoned," Judge Linda Parker, an Obama appointee, wrote in her ruling Friday.

Today we celebrate the court’s ruling permitting the lawsuit against the EPA to move forward. Lawsuit alleges EPA failed to take steps necessary to protect the people of Flint from being poisoned by their water. Go Get ‘Em Flint Team.@PittMcGe@michaelpitt8 pic.twitter.com/BTPYbODw1y

Flint residents will get their day in court with the U.S. government. https://t.co/kpawKAiF9h

— Rebecca Beitsch (@RebeccaBeitsch) April 19, 2019

The EPA was notified that Flint was using a contaminated drinking water source—the Flint River—in mid-2015, when a whistleblower wrote in a memo that the water contained lead. But the agency didn't issue an emergency order to protect residents for another seven months.

By that time, residents of the majority-black city had been drinking the tainted water for a year and a half.

City officials began drawing drinking water from the river in April 2014, switching from Detroit's system to save money. Residents began complaining of rashes, hair loss, and other health concerns almost immediately, and reporting that the water was brown and had an unpleasant taste and odor—but the city insisted the water was safe.

State regulators continued telling residents that the water was safe for drinking even after a group of doctors reported in September 2015 that they had detected high levels of lead in children's bloodstreams. The EPA issued its emergency order in January 2016 and claims that it lacked the authority to take action sooner because of the state's decision-making.

As residents are arguing in their lawsuit, the agency's inspector general reported later that year that under the Safe Drinking Water Act, in the event of state inaction "the EPA can and should proceed with an [emergency] order" to protect the public "in a timely manner."

"The lead-contaminated public water supply system will affect the residents for years and likely generations to come," Parker wrote.

"The acts leading to the creation of the Flint Water Crisis, alleged to be rooted in lies, recklessness and profound disrespect have and will continue to produce a heinous impact for the people of Flint."

Communist NJ Governor Wants To Punish Low-Income Gun Owners With Insane New Fees

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) wants to significantly increase the cost of owning a gun in the state - proposing fees that would be among the highest in the country, according to the New York Times.

Currently, a firearm identification costs $5, a permit to own a gun $2, and a permit to carry a gun costs just $20. Murphy wants to raise that to $100 for the ID, $50 to own a gun and $400 to carry. In addition, Murphy wants to slap a 10% excise tax on ammunition and a 2.5% firearms excise tax.

The proposals are part of the state budget which must be passed by June 30.

The new fees would - as they always do - disproportionately punish low-income, law-abiding, mostly minority gun owners who wish to defend themselves and their families in high-crime areas.

While Murphy lives in mostly white Princeton, NJ - which has an average income of $125,000 and virtually no violent crime, residents of predominantly black Asbury Park - with an average income of $37,737 (2016) and more than double the national crime rate, would be much harder pressed to come up with the extra $523 to legally defend themselves.

Murphy claims that there is 'no war on responsible gun owners,' and that the funds raised from the fee hike would go towards anti-violence initiatives [ha! yah right!].

At least 12 states, including New York, Connecticut and Washington, have moved to increase fees and taxes on guns and ammunition since the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012, according to a study by Southern Illinois University.

Though higher fees might discourage some people from buying firearms, gun control advocates and researchers said they were not certain that higher fees alone would reduce violence. -New York Times

Gun owners aren't taking kindly to Murphy's proposal.

"This is clear bullying of law-abiding gun owners in the state," said Cody McLaughlin, spokesman for the pro-hunting New Jersey Outdoor Alliance. "You’re talking about sportsmen that are already paying hundreds of dollars a year in license fees."

New Jersey Democratic leaders aren't so sure either.

Even in deeply blue New Jersey, Mr. Murphy faces resistance. Democratic legislative leaders are tepid on the governor’s proposal, with some making the case that the state’s residents already pay more than enough in taxes and fees.

“I think we’ve done a lot of gun reform in this state. We are the most progressive state in the nation when it comes to gun reform,” said Stephen M. Sweeney, the Senate president. “Just to check a box to say you did something, I’m not sure that’s necessary. I don’t think it’s going to raise a lot of money.” -New York Times

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: Jihadists Allowed To Bomb Hotels and Churches In Sri Lanka Killing 290+

The death toll in Sunday's devastating wave of Easter Sunday suicide bombings, which rocked three Catholic Churches and four luxury hotels popular with tourists, has climbed to 290, while more than 500 have been injured, making the assault even deadlier than the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

As the Sri Lankan government scrambles to apprehend anyone who conspired with the at least seven suicide bombers who carried out Sunday's attacks, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe appealed for international help "to find out if there was foreign assistance" to the bombers. Domestically, Sri Lankan police have already arrested two dozen suspects. A state of emergency is expected to be declared starting at midnight on Monday. The Colombo stock exchange has been closed for the foreseeable future as the capital city tries to process the aftermath of the attacks.

Meanwhile, the climbing death toll has established the attacks in Sri Lanka as the deadliest in South Asia in recent memory.

Here's a ranking by death toll:

290 (as of now): Sri Lanka bombings, 2019

Sri Lanka’s police chief warned ten days ago that radical Islamic extremists were planning to murder Christians in ‘prominent churches’ on Easter Sunday, but the terrorists were still allowed to wreak deadly carnage.

At least 207 people have been declared dead, including Americans, British and European citizens, with the death toll expected to rise, according to reports.

The nature of the blasts, which hit high-end hotels and churches holding Easter services in Sri Lanka on Sunday, injuring as many as 500, was not immediately clear, and there were no immediate claims of responsibility.

However, documents seen by news agency AFP reveal that Sri Lanka’s police chief Pujuth Jayasundara issued an intelligence alert to top officers 10 days ago, warning that Islamic suicide bombers planned to hit ‘prominent churches’.

Former Director Mike Pompeo Calls America An 'Experiment', Admits The CIA Lies, Cheats and Steals

Former CIA director Mike Pompeo has admitted that the CIA is in the business of lying, cheating, and stealing.

The now Secretary of State has long accused WikiLeaks of being a “non-state hostile intelligence agency”, usually manipulated by Russia.

Zerohedge.com reports:
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-21/i-was-cia-director-we-lied-we-cheated-we-stole

Since Pompeo first made this claim as CIA Director in April 2017, countless major US news sources from NPR to CNN to the Washington Post have uncritically repeated the line, smearing Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as “Russian agents,” and more broadly using the narrative to stifle independent journalism and government whistleblowers.

But whether Pompeo or any other current or former CIA director makes such a bombastic claim without offering evidence — such as more recently asserting that China and Russia have “helped destroy” Venezuela through faltering investments, should anyone ever believe a high CIA official? Certainly the mainstream media routinely takes intelligence officials simply at their word, but Pompeo himself recently admitted the CIA is in the business of lying, cheating, and stealing.

Last week Mike Pompeo spoke at Texas A&M University, itself long known for being a favored recruiting ground of the CIA, considering too that one of the university’s last presidents, Robert Gates, was CIA chief and later served as Bush and Obama’s Secretary of Defense.

During the Q&A session, Pompeo boasted that in the CIA both the training and culture are geared toward the following:

“We lied, we cheated, we stole.”

Interestingly, a Christian religious news broadcaster was the only media that seemed to pick up on Pompeo’s words last week, and described it as follows: “that’s not the resume of the Secretary of State… that’s the resume of Satan.”

The former CIA chief and now Secretary of State said the following:

“What’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It’s — it was like — we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment.” — Texas A&M University (April 15, 2019)

Though some level of deception might be expected of spies placed in foreign settings to commit espionage, it’s interesting that Pompeo framed it in terms “the glory of the American experiment” — as if the CIA and government officials treat lying as a great American past time.

Mexican Troops Hold American Troops Hostage On US Soil As FBI Arrests US Militia Leader

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: >>>/endpol/1132

Mexican troops drew guns on two American soldiers standing on the U.S. side of the border earlier this month, defense officials say.

Washingtonexaminer.com reports:
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/mexican-troops-drew-weapons-on-american-soldiers-on-u-s-side-of-the-border

The soldiers were in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection vehicle near the southwest border in the vicinity of Clint, Texas.

Officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what seemed to be assault riffles. They drew their weapons when they saw the two U.S. soldiers and ordered the U.S. troops to return their weapons to a military vehicle. According to officials, the two Americans obliged “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”

“Throughout the incident, the U.S. soldiers followed all established procedures and protocols,” Northern Command said in a statement.

While the two US troops were on the south side of the security perimeter, officials say that they were still north of the Rio Grande and thus were firmly inside American territory. After the incident, military and Department of Homeland Security officials sent an inquiry to the Mexican government demanding an explanation.

Meanwhile the FBI is conducting their stings on innocent American patriots who are doing their best to help secure the US borders!

The FBI arrested the leader of a private militia group that detains invaders on the US-Mexico border Saturday for helping Border Patrol services defend American soil from invaders. The FBI is charging him with for illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.

Larry Mitchell Hopkins, who also goes by Johnny Horton Jr. according to the FBI, is a member of the United Constitutional Patriots in New Mexico. The group posted images and video of its operations on its Facebook page; some of the videos show invaders being detained by armed members.

The arrest goes to prove the FBI holds extreme political bias against partriots and conservative Americans and this is an attempt to keep US borders completely unsafe during a crisis!

In response to the arrest, New Mexico’s attorney general, Hector Balderas, released a statement that bashed the patriotic militia for helping defend the borders, saying that America should become a third world shithole and Americans just 'deal with it.' What an absolute peice of shit!

Treason and contempt for America knows no bounds with domestic enemies who want to destabilize this nation creating crisis after crisis after crisis.

A spokesperson for United Constitutional Patriots said the group has detained 5,600 illegal invaders in the last two months, and said the group does nothing more than to support the Border Patrol.

The Growing Anti-Semitism Scam

“An anti-Semite used to mean a man who hated Jews. Now it means a man who is hated by Jews.”– Joe Sobran

In his novel 1984 George Orwell invented the expression “newspeak” to describe the ambiguous or deliberately misleading use of language to make political propaganda and narrow the “thought options” of those who are on the receiving end. In the context of today’s political discourse, or what passes for the same, it would be interesting to know what George would think of the saturation use of “anti-Semitism” as something like a tactical discussion stopper, employed to end all dispute while also condemning those accused of the crime as somehow outside the pale, monsters who are consigned forever to derision and obscurity.

The Israelis and, to be sure, many diaspora Jews know exactly how the expression has been weaponized. Former Israeli Minister Shulamit Aloni explained how it is done “Anti-Semitic”…”its a trick, we always use it.”

If one were to read the U.S. mainstream media, reflective as it nearly always is of a certain institutional Jewish viewpoint, one would think that there has been a dramatic increase in anti-Semitism worldwide, but that claim is incorrect. What has been taking place is not hatred of Jews but rather a confluence of two factors. First is the undeniable fact that Israel has been behaving particularly badly, even by its admittedly low standards. Its slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza has been unusually observable in spite of media attempts to avoid mentioning it, plus its support of terrorists in Syria and attacks on that country have also raised questions about the intentions of the kleptocratic regime in Tel Aviv, which is currently pushing for an attack on Iran. That all means that the perception of Israel, which boasts that it is the exclusively Jewish state, inevitably raises questions about the international Jewish community that provides much of its support. But the shift in perception is driven by Israeli behavior, not by Jews as an ethnicity or a religion.

Second, the alleged increase in anti-Semitic incidents is largely fueled by how those incidents are defined. Israel and its friends have worked hard to broaden the parameters of the discussion, making any criticism of Israel or its activities either a hate crime or ipso facto an anti-Semitic incident. The U.S. State Department’s working definition of anti-Semitism includes “…the targeting of the state of Israel” and it warns that anti-Semitism is a criminal offense. Recent legislation in Washington and also in Europe has criminalized hitherto legal and non-violent efforts to pressure Israel regarding its inhumanity vis-à-vis the Palestinians. Legitimate criticism of Israel thereby becomes both anti-Semitism and criminal, increasing the count of so-called anti-Semitic incidents. That means that the numbers inevitably go up, providing fodder to validate a repressive response.

One might add that Hollywood, the mainstream media and academia have contributed to the allegations regarding surging anti-Semitism, relentlessly unleashing a torrent of material rooting out alleged anti-Semites and so-called holocaust deniers, while simultaneously heaping praise on Israel and its achievements. Professor of Holocaust Studies Deborah Lipstadt has written a book Anti-Semitism: Here and Now about what she regards as the new anti-Semitism, supporting her belief that it is getting markedly worse in both Europe and the U.S. There is also a movie about her confrontation with holocaust critic David Irving called Denial. All of the media exposure of so-called anti-Semitism has a political objective, whether intended or not, which is to insulate Israel itself from any criticism and to create for all Jews the status of perpetual victimhood which permits many in the diaspora to unflinchingly support a foreign country against the interests of the nations where they were born, raised and made their fortunes.

Top 11 Causes of Cancer You May Have NEVER Guessed

You could wake up every day and be stepping into a total health nightmare while thinking you’re “playing your cards” just fine. We’ve all learned over the past few years that the mainstream media is one huge breadbasket of lies fueled by corporate-driven greed that delivers poison for our minds and our bodies at every turn of the channel, newspaper page or web page. Not only are most Americans “eating” cancer daily, they’re consuming the top 11 causes of cancer ­– all while they either count calories, “carbs” or how many pounds they weigh – none of which will matter when the oncologist sends them home with no cure in sight.

Then people go “march for the cure” at some Susan Komen Foundation gathering while eating Kentucky Fried Chicken and drinking Mike’s Hard Lemonade, both Komen sponsor foods and beverages that contain carcinogens (deep fried processed oils and alcohol, respectively) that aid cancer cell development.

You want the cure? Stop eating, drinking and injecting the disease you’re fighting off! Face it now. You’ve been lied to by Big Food, Big Pharma and probably even a few M.D.s and an oncologist. Let’s take a close look at what’s really polluting our cleansing organs, warping our cells, and destroying our good gut bacteria, leading us down a dark and dangerous corridor of cell mutation where our very own cells attack our body, and where mainstream medicine ADDS to the chaos!

1. Stress

Are you stressed? Are you stressing yourself out unnecessarily? Did you know stress can drain your adrenal glands that sit atop your kidneys? This can affect the balance of salt to water within the body and affect your blood pressure. Draining your adrenals can also increase blood glucose levels and cause inflammatory reactions. Ever heard of Cushing’s syndrome? It’s a disorder where the adrenals overproduce cortisol, causing an aggressive cancer that drives an excessive production of hormones. Adrenal fatigue is often caused by poor sleep, heavy metal toxicity, chronic respiratory infections, and yes, relentless stress.

2. Nitrates

Processed meats are kept from spoiling using nitrates and nitrates, that are basically heavily concentrated salts that cause cancer. Nitrites have been classified as a Class 1-A carcinogen along with cigarettes. Hey bacon lovers, wake up and smell the cancer. Cut out the hot dogs, deli meats, sausage and bacon and you massively reduce your chances of contracting the “C” word in this lifetime.

3. Fluoridated tap water

No, the fluoride the USA drips into your drinking water does NOT help you build strong teeth and fight cavities. Big lie. If you drink from the tap, including making coffee, tea, or mixing it with powdered beverage mixes, you’re fueling cancer cells by drinking a toxic insecticide that’s a byproduct of the industrial division of China. Exported as sodium fluoride in order to get the toxic bug killer out of their country, the insidious industrialists of America drip fluoride into U.S. tap water to make the population dumb, sick and in need of chronic sick care pharmaceuticals, including toxic chemotherapy that causes MORE cancer. Yes, you’ve been duped by the system.

Stunning New Material Invented In Turkey Makes Wood Bulletproof, 5x Stronger Than Titanium

Turkish inventors have created a new building material that is five times stronger than titanium and has the density of wood planks. Most remarkably, this new “Metallic wood” is lighter than titanium and still has the chemical stability of metal for use in manufacturing applications.

The new material is made out of nickel-based cellular materials as small as 17 nano-meters in diameter. These electroplated nickel nano-particles are strategically arranged in struts to maximize their load-bearing strength as a whole. This strategic arrangement of nickel makes the material four times stronger than bulk nickel plating. By tinkering with nano-meter-scale geometry, the inventors can increase the strength and density of the new material. This geometric arrangement of cellular materials is spatially organized and repeated to generate the new “Metallic wood” material. This geometric nano-meter engineering feat produces a very dense material, like that of wood. The inventors have even made the material as dense as water (1,000?kg/m3).

Each 17 nano meter strut has a tensile strength as high as 8 GPa, an unprecedented measurement for something this small in size. Through compression testing, the inventors found that these nano-pillars can be reduced in diameter to increase the load bearing strength of the entire material. The problem that often occurs in developing new materials is scaling the material to meet real life applications. The macroscopic properties are just as important as the strength of the nano-pillars contained therein. The strength of the entire material can vary at different masses and shapes. For example, in nano-pillars made from nano-crystalline metals, there is an increase in strength at a certain mass, but a decrease in strength when the overall mass is reduced to the size of a grain.

In real-life application, this new “Metallic wood” does have enough mass to support various loads in industrial manufacturing and construction applications. The new material, although very light, has the density to stand up to real-life applications.

This new material is the first of its kind to multiply a nano-structured cellular material to develop a workable material for manufacturing, with a specific strength that is above 100 Mpa/(Mg/m3). Most nano-scale pillar materials lack the density needed to be used in all manufacturing applications.

The development of these nano-structures started with the fabrication of opal material, monodisperse polystyrene particles, and gold/chromium coated substrates. The polystyrene was stabilized at just the right temperature to increase the diameter between polystyrene spheres. This allowed the inventors to deposit nickel into the voids of the polystyrene structure. The interconnected spherical pores were oriented in a cubic formation. Additional nickel was added to increase the volume fraction of the nano-pillars, their diameter, and their mass.

Figure 1 image is taken from “High strength metallic wood from nanostructured nickel inverse opal materials” published in Scientific Reports volume 9, Article number: 719 (2019).

In figure 1 a) you can see the fabrication process for a unit cell of the nickel inverse opal material.

In (b–g) you can see a cross section of the nickel inverse opal material.

In (b,c) the inventors show a nickel inverse opal with no coating.

In (d,e) you can see a nickel inverse opal material with a 21?nm coating of additional electrodeposited nickel.

In (f) the inventors show a nickel inverse opal material with a 25?nm coating of additional electrodeposited rhenium-nickel.

In figure (g) you can get a closer image of one of the struts in (f).

In (h) you can see the final close-up of 2?cm2 nickel inverse opal material with 500?nm pores and 15?µm thickness grown on a gold/chromium coated glass slide.

Finally in (i), you can see a nickel inverse opal material with 300?nm pores grown on gold/chromium coated 20?µm thick polyimide.

Leftist Media Screams And Panics As Mueller Report Exposes Collusion With ISRAEL, Not Russia!

Now that the redacted 448-page Mueller report has been released to the public, people on both sides of the aisle have been madly poring over the results of the special counsel's 22-month Russia probe.

https://www.justice.gov/storage/report.pdf

Prosecutors closely examined whether Donald Trump or members of his 2016 campaign conspired with Russia to release emails which were damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC, and/or any involvement with the Kremlin's social media disinformation campaigns.

The investigation also covered whether Trump associates operated as unregistered Russian (and in one case Israeli) agents, and whether the infamous June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian attorney violated campaign finance laws as a "thing-of-value" offered by foreign governments, or crossed any other legal boundaries.

At the end of the day, Mueller and his team did not find that any Trump campaign associates were operating on behalf of Russia in connection with the 2016 election. Mueller did, however, find Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates guilty of crimes connected to their work for the Ukrainian government prior to their involvement with Trump. Also...

Mueller looked at charging Trump aide George Papadopoulos as an agent of Israel.

Whoa -- the investigation into Papadopoulos was into whether he was an Israeli agent pic.twitter.com/HUN5Z6nv4z

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) April 18, 2019

In June 2018, @simonamangiante told me that investigators had threatened to charge @GeorgePapa19 as an agent of Israel. I didn't know what to make of it at the time, but Mueller report backs it up. https://t.co/CcZHeJEJqC @dailycaller

— Chuck Ross (@ChuckRossDC) April 18, 2019

Also noteworthy is that the Trump Tower meeting investigation "did not identify evidence connecting the events of June 9 & the GRU's hack-and-dump operation.

BREAKING: Buried in a footnote, Mueller Report crushes last remaining MSM "collusion" hopes centered on June 9, 2016, Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr: "The investigation did not identify evidence connecting the events of June 9 & the GRU's hack-and-dump operation."

— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) April 18, 2019

There are a mountain of pages and footnotes to go through, but here are some takeaways so far:

Mueller was unable to establish that Trump committed any underlying crimes.

"Unlike cases in which a subject engages in obstruction of justice to cover up a crime, the evidence we obtained did not establish that the president was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference," the report reads.

Mueller considered pressing charges in connection with the Trump Tower meeting.

The special counsel's office considered prosecuting the Trump Tower meeting as a campaign-finance violation, however declined because they didn't have "admissible evidence" likely to prove that Trump officials "wilfully" acted, or that the information offered by the Russians exceeded the threshold for prosecution.

Third World USSA: Collapse of Oroville Dam Has Become a Distinct Possibility

The Oroville Dam is in crisis. In the past several weeks, I have spoken to Paul Preston multiple times about the continuing crisis. This morning, April 18, 2019, Preston is in court attempting to file an injunction against the Department of Water Resources.of California. Consequently, Preston is not able to speak with me on this topic. However, I do have access to other sources and I have obtained direct evidence which strongly indicates that the Oroville Dam is in imminent danger. Here is what we know as the early morning hours on April 18, 2019.

Within the Past Six Days the Dam Has Begun Periodic Over-topping

The Oroville Dam is the biggest earthen dam in the United States, standing at a height of 901 feet. The dam is experiencing threats to its existence from a number of sources. Here was a recent story which indicated that over-topping was a looming threat. This alone, could collapse the dam.

From Agenda 21 Radio:
http://www.agenda21radio.news/2019/04/15/the-error-codes-n-of-the-oroville-dam/

Many New Californians in the Butte, Sutter and Yuba counties have expressed great concern over what they have been seeing error codes from the Oroville dam data exchange center’s hourly charts from the Department of Water Resources. The error codes (N) started showing up on the charts April 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm PST. when the last reported elevation of the water in the reservoir was at 860.83 feet. By 4:00 pm PST the elevation was reported at 533.22 a drop of 327 feet in the water level. Noted alongside the measurement is letter (N) which indicates there is an error in the reporting.

Of big concern for people was after 44 hours without a proper reading from the Oroville Dam what was the real level of the reservoir since the last reading that was produced without an error code (N) was Friday April 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm PST that report showed an elv. at 860.83 ft

As of Sunday at 12:00 pm pst 44 hours after the error code showed there was only minimal data that could be used such as the inches per hour which was not reliable but the Inflows were 19,559 vs Out flows of 8,002 at 12:00 pm PST April 14, 2019 with the main spillway is NOT in use.

“We don’t know the levels. What are the exact numbers?” stated one Butte County resident.

The dam max reservoir is 899.9. Over topping starts at 901 many people were thinking there was an over topping threat as they saw on February 11, 2017. The February 11, 2017 incident was the led to the February 12 dam failure that forced the Sheriff to call for an emergency evacuation of 190,000 people from the inundation zone.

Vietnam Bans Toxic Glyphosate As US Agriculture $ecretary Throws A Fit

>>>/related/11

Vietnam announced that effective immediately, they are banning the import of glyphosate following the latest cancer trial verdict:

The Nation that was forced to endure Monsanto’s Agent Orange, has been slammed by the US Agriculture $ecretary for banning their Glyphosate, a move he says that will have devastating impacts on global agricultural production.

Glyphosate is the subject of thousands of lawsuits in the US where is is said that exposure to it causes several kinds of cancer

The Vietnam Government’s decision to ban glyphosate means that all herbicides containing glyphosate will not be imported into the country, according to the country’s Plant Protection Department.

US $ecretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue recently criticized Vietnam’s move to ban imports of glyphosate-based herbicides, saying the decision would have “devastating impacts on global agricultural production.”

Perdue said the US government had shared scientific studies with Vietnam concluding that glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic hazard to humans.

Vietnam’s government said that the toxic level of herbicides containing glyphosate had been of concern for a very long time, and Vietnamese media reports said the ban would take effect in June.

Wild Bee Population Collapses By 90% In New England Due To Chemtrails

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1135

Researchers from the University of New Hampshire conducted a study to document declines in about 100 wild bee species critical to pollinating crops throughout New England. What they discovered, according to the study, was a collapse in the wild bee population across the state, reported AP.

Researchers analyzed 119 species in the state from a museum collection at the college dating back more than a century. Sandra Rehan and Minna Mathiasson published the study in the peer-reviewed journal called Insect and Conservation Diversity this month. They concluded 14 species found across New England were on the decline by as much as 90%. Several of the species include leafcutter and mining bees.

"We know that wild bees are greatly at risk and not doing well worldwide," Rehan, assistant professor of biological sciences and the senior author on the study, said in a prepared statement. "This status assessment of wild bees shines a light on the exact species in decline, besides the well-documented bumblebees. Because these species are major players in crop pollination, it raises concerns about compromising the production of key crops and the food supply in general."

Wild bee populations across the world are in decline, and scientists have blamed a wide range of factors including insecticides, herbicides [like glyphosate !?], parasites, disease, and [geo-engineering]. Bees are crucial for pollination, and about one-third of the human diet derives from plants that are directly pollinated by bees.

Greg Burtt, founder of Burtt’s Apple Orchard in Cabot, Vermont, told the AP that his farm relies heavily on wild bees for crop production.

"Making sure that pollinators in the area are healthy and doing well is definitely something we’re concerned about," Burtt said.

Jeff Lozier, a bee expert from the University of Alabama who didn't participate in the study, said the results are a critical step in expanding research into lesser-known species of bees. He cautioned that the study relied upon bees in a museum that were not collected "for the purpose of large scale population surveys."

"The most important use of the data in my view is in providing a baseline set of hypotheses for groups of species that are potentially declining or stable across a much greater set of species than is usually examined, which can then be investigated in more detail to determine why they may be changing," Lozier said in an email interview. "This study doesn’t really determine the why quite yet, but gives us a reference point for further study."

We all know very well about the negative effects of chemtrails our despotic treasonous governments are viciously spraying against the population:

Neo-cons Preparing For War With Iran (Another War for ZOG)

Mike Pompeo is “setting the stage for a war with Iran,” according to a Bush-era official.

Last week, the U.S. Secretary of State suggested that the Trump administration would not rule out going to war with Iran even though there was no explicit authorization from Congress to do so.

Lawrence Wilkerson, who served as chief of staff for former US Secretary of State Colin Powell, claims that he can see the same pattern that developed ahead of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

“I’m looking at the same kind of trail, as it were, that happened just prior to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the same characters with a few new additions actually laying that trail down,” he said in an interview with nonprofit news organization The Real News Network.

Press TV reports:
https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/04/17/593693/Preposterous-Pompeo-setting-the-stage-for-a-war-with-Iran-says-Bushera-official

Pompeo was recently warned about going to war with Iran by Republican Senator Rand Paul, reminding him that he has no “permission” to do so without Congress approval.

Yet, the war hawk could still use a Congress 2001 authorization — Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (AUMF) — to start a war with Iran, by baselessly linking Tehran to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“All of these are building blocks and I think the AUMF is the last building block, in setting the stage for a war with Iran, for the use of military force against Iran,” said Wilkerson, calling such a move “preposterous.”

Originally issued by Congress to take on terrorists, the AUMF was never used against Saudi Arabia despite the role Saudis played in the attacks.

“Visibly here, laughably here, preposterously here, Saudi Arabia provided fifteen of those terrorists. The UAE, the most staunch Saudi ally right now with MBS in its leadership role, provided two or three of the others. So we’re looking at the main element that attacked the United States on September 11th, 2001, having come from Saudi citizenry, accompanied by UAE citizenry. And now we’re looking at Iran as applicable under this AUMF.”

Good! Mom Finds Pedophile In 12 Year Old Daughter's Bedroom, Boyfriend Saves Girl With A Gun!

A man who broke into a 12-year-old girl’s bedroom in Kentucky, Louisiana, before undressing himself has been shot six times after a furious mother intervened and took matters into her own hands, according to court documents.

“He got undressed in my daughter’s room,” Tina Burton told local outlet WDRB. “Like, what was your intentions? … You are sick.”

Even with an undressed, adult man in her bedroom, Burton says that her daughter kept it together and did everything right.

“She hid under the cover, turned her light down, turned her volume down on her phone to text me,” Burton said.

“When she peeked under the cover to see where he was at, she got up and ran away. She went to the back room. And I think that was really brave and smart of her.”

Burton’s boyfriend, Ali Bracey, said that he fired a total of six shots at the alleged intruder.

Donald Oliver, 38, was in a wheelchair for his court appearance on Monday, just one day after he was shot while allegedly breaking into the home of Tina Burton in Louisville, Kentucky early Sunday morning.

Oliver was apparently a neighbor that nobody in the home had met before, and local law enforcement says that he entered the residence through the kitchen window while wearing only his underwear.

They also say they found a bag of heroin where he took his clothes off.

Unsealed Affidavit Tries To Put WikiLeaks In Cahoots With The Taliban, Bin Laden

On Monday a federal judge in Virginia unsealed the original 2017 affidavit and criminal complaint on which Assange's extradition request to the US is based, offering new details including chat logs between Assange and former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea (then Bradley) Manning, which attempt to support a single count ofconspiracy to commit computer intrusion” which may or may not have succeeded. The US alleges Assange actively sought for and encouraged Manning to crack a password to access classified information on a Defense Department network; the affidavit claims details related to this charge, for instance chat log discussions between the pair over how to crack a password, though the affidavit notes that "it remains unknown whether Manning and Assange were successful in cracking the password," related to the conspiracy charge.

“Investigators have not recovered a response by Manning to Assange's question, and there is no other evidence as to what Assange did, if anything, with respect to the password,” the document states. However, the FBI-produced affidavit's language throughout makes no mention of Assange acting in the way of a journalist or a publisher, but instead takes pains to paint him as conspiring to commit espionage. The document further notes that though Manning suspected the person on the other end of the chat was Assange, ultimately “it took me four months to confirm that the person i was communicating was in fact assange.” The affidavit describes the individual in communication with Manning “appeared to have extensive knowledge of WikiLeaks' day-to-day operations, including knowledge of submissions of information to the organization, as well as of financial matters.”

Manning had spent seven years in prison on violations of the Espionage Act and copying and disseminating classified military field reports, before receiving a commutation from President Obama. The secret military documents and files were what put WikiLeaks on the international media map after they were released on 2010, and included sensitive information about the Iraq and Afghan wars, Guantánamo Bay operations, as well as other State Department cables. The document uses maximal and hyped language to describe “one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the United States,” yet struggles to ascertain whether “illegal agreement that Assange and Manning reached” specifically led to the release of the document trove (obviously crucial for charges against Assange to hold up). Concerning a potential extradition to the US, “probable cause” is cited to be the hundreds of messages sent between Manning and Assange on the Jabber platform. The argument is that Assange and Manning understood that it “would cause injury to the United States,” especially with US forces active on the ground in Afghanistan.

But on this point of whether the leaks did actual harm and damage to US efforts, the document is left reaching, trying to spin and insinuate a narrative that puts WikiLeaks and terrorist groups like the Taliban and al-Qaeda in cahoots. It starts by claiming that “after the release of the Afghanistan War Reports, a member of the Taliban contacted the New York Times.” The supposed Taliban member said, “We are studying the report… If they are US spies, then we will know how to punish them.” This strange and somewhat comical example is meant to support the notion that Assange ultimately aided America's enemies with the leaks. Worse, the affidavit makes Osama bin Laden — "killed in a 2011 raid by US Navy Seals while living comfortably in an Abbottabad, Pakistan compound" [Bullshit] — out to be a WikiLeaks fan, given letters had been found instructing an al-Qaeda member to “gather” the publicly available material leaked by Manning.

BRAVO PATRIOTS! Over 300 Illegal Aliens Stopped by Armed Citizen Militia in New Mexico

Hundreds of illegal aliens attempting to cross into the United States were apprehended by a small militia called “United Constitutional Patriots” (UCP) Tuesday night near Sunland Park, New Mexico.

The militia, comprised of veterans and former cops, turned over the large group over to Border Patrol for deportation.

Infowars.com reports:
https://www.infowars.com/border-crisis-caught-on-video-300-illegals-stopped-by-armed-militia/

A member of UCP who livestreamed the encounter can be heard saying, “Lots of coughing. Lots of men with little children. We need the wall folks, please share this. Lots and lots of coughing folks. This is what’s coming across our border. How bad does it get before we actually build the wall?”

Another militia member, Jim Benvie, also streamed on Facebook as they waited for Border Patrol to arrive and apprehend the illegal immigrants.

“I literally walked out and I looked, and all I saw was hundreds of people coming at us,” Benvie said.

Posted by Jim Benvie on Tuesday, April 16, 2019

“We’re just Americans,” Benvie told Daily Mail. “We’re veterans, we’re ex-law enforcement, we’re people that care about our national security. We’re people that care about our strained Border Patrol.”

While Border Patrol allegedly said it does not condone UCP’s actions, group leader John Horton told Newsweek, “We have a good work rapport with them. Our goal was to be here until we’re not needed. And when we’re not needed is when that wall is up.”

This is merely the latest example of the escalating crisis at the southern border, as just today President Trump asked Democrats in Congress to “return from their vacations and change the immigration laws,” and Yuma, Arizona declared a state of emergency over the surge of illegal immigrants.

Two More Teslas Crash In One Week, Woman Killed, Three Executives Leave Company

The good, old fashioned oil-backed naked-short selling conspiracy "FUD" just keeps on rolling in.

The employee exodus at Tesla shows no signs of stopping, and the latest to fall victims to the constant turnover of Tesla staff are two members of the company's security team and its Director of Manufacturing Operations for the Model 3. About a week ago, it was reported that Tesla's information security chief, Karl Wagner, had left the company. Wagner had an extensive background in intelligence and was a longtime former CIA operative. Wagner wrote what we can only describe as a carefully worded post on LinkedIn, announcing his departure:

Elon Musk [sic] is a visionary and Tesla employees second only to the shadow warriors of the CIA in ingenuity, courage and perseverance. As I move to the next phase of my professional life, I’m proud and honored to have worked alongside them.

Wagner's departure marked the second security chief change at Tesla in less than a year.

A Tesla vehicle near Pittsburgh caught fire and burned for hours on Wednesday night at an area service garage. The fire occurred despite Tesla engineers reportedly having access to the vehicle prior to moving it. The photos are stunning, showing what appears to be a vehicle that has been close to completely incinerated and reduced to a heap of smoldering wreckage.

The same car had previously caught fire back in February in a garage around the same area, according to CBS 2 Pittsburgh. It was being towed to a new shop on Wednesday and "somehow" caught fire again, despite the fact that a Tesla engineer tried to reduce the risk of fire by removing the fuse from the battery pack prior to transporting the vehicle.

“We removed the car from the garage. A Tesla engineer removed the fuse from the battery pack prior to transport, indicating that would make the car safe for transport. We brought it here to Monroeville, arrived around 3:30 in the afternoon, and about 6:20, the car spontaneously caught fire,” forensic engineer David Bizzak said.

Just hours ahead of Tesla's planned autonomous driving cash grab event, another report of a fatal accident involving a Tesla has surfaced - and it may be one of the most disturbing yet. A 77-year-old woman was killed after a "violent crash" ripped through the door of the Tesla that she was riding in, ultimately throwing her into a lane of traffic on the 405 Freeway in Long Beach, according to the Long Beach Post.

The crash took place at about 9:40 PM PST on Monday, April 15. The accident happened on the southbound 405 at Lakewood Boulevard.

Although the accident isn't attributed to Autopilot in the report, there remains some mystery as to how it occurred to begin with. The story says that "For some reason, the Tesla’s driver swerved and hit a curb at the end of the Lakewood Boulevard on-ramp, according to the CHP," without giving further information as to what caused the accident. The driver then lost control of the vehicle and hit an empty Chevy that was stopped on the shoulder.

MyNewsLA did note, however, that the accident occurred near an on-ramp and that the Tesla made "an unsafe turning movement":

The preliminary investigation revealed the Tesla driver made an unsafe turning movement causing the vehicle to collide with a raised concrete curb at the end of the Lakewood Boulevard on-ramp.

After hitting the stopped vehicle, the Tesla's right rear passenger door was torn through, ejecting the woman into the fifth lane of the freeway, where a BMW hit her, killing her, according to the California Highway Patrol. The crash is still being investigated and nobody was arrested at the scene.

Proposed Texas Law Would Demand Safety Studies for Vaccines... And Big Pharama Is Opposed To It!

While the rest of the country is drifting towards third world despotic medical tyranny, legislators from the Lone Star State are working to preserve health freedom. State lawmakers have put forth multiple vaccine measures that need support. One such measure, S.B. 2350, will mandate the need for legitimate vaccine safety studies. Legislators are also pushing to ensure no parent is forced to vaccine their child in the state of Texas.

Proponents of the vaccine industry have been quick to label these efforts as “misinformation” intended to “stoke fear” about vaccine safety.

Ironically, many of these pro-vaccine rags blither on about measles “outbreaks” while disparaging dissent to the vaccine narrative — even though most outbreaks are actually caused by the measles vaccine. Remember folks, its only “fear-mongering” if you’re going against the grain. The fact of the matter is that vaccine propagandists rely heavily on scare tactics and self-aggrandizement to encourage compliance with pharmaceutical dogma. Without those two tools, vaccines would be seen for what they are: poison.

Senator Bob Hall (R) recently introduced S.B. 2350, a bill which would mandate the necessity of legitimate safety studies before a vaccine can be administered by healthcare providers. As Tenth Amendment Center reports, the bill will toughen up on vaccine safety requirements and how safety studies are performed.

As Natural News has previously reported, it is not at all uncommon for Big Pharma (and their government pawns) to manipulate data in their favor. Recall the CDC’s treasonous act of scientific fraud regarding the MMR vaccine for proof of how far that stain has spread.

https://web.archive.org/web/20190417162010/https://www.naturalnews.com/043344_AIDS_vaccine_research_fraud_science_hoax.html

While vaccine propagandists like to pretend vaccine science is infallible, that notion simply couldn’t be further from the truth. The new regulations proposed by SB 2350 would mandate “sufficient” time for vaccine side effects to be observed post-vaccination in safety studies, and would also demand that all vaccines be evaluated for their ability to cause cancer, fertility issues, neurological changes and other unintended consequences.

Representative Bill Zedler (R) has introduced H.B. 4274, a bill which will require healthcare providers to obtain informed consent before administering a vaccine.

Under Zedler’s informed consent bill, providers must give patients (or their caregivers) information on the risks and benefits of vaccination and a list of the ingredients in every vaccine administered. Information on the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, and what recourse patients have in the event of vaccine injury, must also be disclosed.

Zedler told reporters that he is “adamantly opposed to people being forced” into vaccinating their children.

Former Peruvian President Shoots Himself As Police Raid Home

High level mass corruption scandals continue to plague Latin America politics, as on Wednesday Peru's former President Alan García shot himself in the head just as police raided his home seeking an arrest.

Local media reports say he has survived the wound, and is undergoing surgery for "a bullet wound to his head" in Lima while in a coma. The 69-year old García served as president from 1985 to 1990 and again from 2006 to 2011, but was recently caught up in the massive bribery scandal involving Brazilian construction company Odebrecht — a conglomerate most recently known for constructing venues for the 2016 Olympics and 2014 World Cup in its home country.

The former president has long denied the allegations, which involved accepting kickbacks from Odebrecht during his second term in office related to contracts for a metro line building project in the capital. Odebrecht, for its part, has admitted paying out almost $30m in bribes since 2004 to Peruvian officials. García has claimed the charges against him are motivated by political persecution.

— Eva Golinger (@evagolinger) April 17, 2019

The Odebrecht scandal has resulted in the downfall of multiple politicians, but it didn't appear García was ready to go to prison quietly. As police entered his Lima home early on Wednesday he reportedly hid in his bedroom, after which he shot himself in the head, and is reported in “very critical” condition, according to Reuters.

Police in riot gear have reportedly surrounded the Casimiro Ulloa hospital where the former president is in a coma.

Amazingly Peru’s last five ex-presidents, in parallel to Brazil's far-reaching so-called "Car Wash" scandal, have either all served jail time or are currently under investigation for corruption.

New Jeffrey Epstein Accuser Steps Forward In Defamation Case Against Alan Dershowitz

Another woman has come forward to accuse 'billionaire pedophile' Jeffrey Epstein and his companion, Ghislaine Maxwell, of molesting her and her then-15-year-old sister in 1996 at the Ohio mansion of billionaire "Limited Brands" CEO Les Wexner, according to court documents cited by the Miami Herald.

The woman, Maria Farmer, says she was employed by Epstein in his Upper East Side New York mansion, where she frequently saw "school-age girls" wearing uniforms enter the residence and go upstairs. According to her affidavit, she was told the girls were auditioning for modeling work.

And who else did Farmer see going upstairs according to her affidavit? Epstein pal and attorney Alan Dershowitz, who has been accused of sexually assaulting Virginia Roberts Giuffre - an Epstein victim who is suing Dershowitz for defamation after she came forward with her claims.

Dershowitz claims he was never in Epstein's mansion at the same time as underage girls, but Farmer said that's not true, according to her affidavit in support of Giuffre's case.

Dershowitz has said that he has never seen any underage girls when he visited Epstein at the financier’s various homes in Palm Beach, New Mexico and New York. But Farmer, who now lives in Kentucky, claims that one of her duties working for Epstein was to staff the front door to his New York estate and to keep track of visitors.

“On a number of occasions I witnessed Dershowitz at the NY mansion going upstairs at the same time there were young girls under the age of 18 who were present upstairs in the house,’’ she said, asserting that Dershowitz was so comfortable he would walk into the mansion and go directly upstairs.

...

Giuffre claims in the lawsuit that Dershowitz, 80, knew about and participated in Epstein and Maxwell’s sex trafficking operation, and that she was forced to have sex with Dershowitz and other prominent, wealthy men, when she was underage.

Dershowitz has railed against the allegations for years, maintaining that he has never met Giuffre. He also says he has documents and other evidence that prove she is lying. -Miami Herald

Of note, Farmer does not say she ever saw Dershowitz with any young girls - however at least one witness, former house manager Alfredo Rodriguez, says he saw young girls in Dershowitz's presence at Epstein's Palm Beach mansion. Rodriguez was prosecuted by the FBI after he tried to sell Epstein's "black book" of friends, business associates, celebrity guests and female masseuses for $50,000. Rodriguez was fired by Epstein in 2005 and died in prison after his prosecution.

Another Epstein accuser, Sarah Ransome, claims that she was "lent out" by Epstein when she was 22-years-old and living in New York, and had a threesome with Dershowitz and Nadia Marcinkova who also worked for Epstein.

Shocking Leak Reveals Facebook Leveraged User Data To Reward Friends, Punish Enemies

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1112

As traders focused on bank earnings and the outlook for global 'growth', NBC News wrested the market's attention back toward Facebook by publishing a report on what appears to be the largest leak of internal documents since the data privacy scandal that has dogged the company for more than a year erupted with the first reports about Cambridge Analytica's improper leveraging of Facebook user data to influence elections.

Some 4,000 pages of documents shared with the network news organization by a journalist affiliated with the ICIJ, the same organization that helped bring us the Panama Papers leaks, revealed that Facebook had employed sensitive user data as a bargaining chip to attract major advertisers and close other deals between 2011 and 2015, when the company was struggling to cement its business model following its botched 2012 IPO.

The thousands of newly shared documents were anonymously leaked to the British investigative journalist Duncan Campbell, who shared them with a handful of media organizations: NBC News, Computer Weekly and Süddeutsche Zeitung. Campbell, a founding member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, is a computer forensics expert who has worked on international investigations including on offshore banking and big tobacco. The documents appear to be the same ones obtained by Parliament in late 2018 as part of an investigation into Facebook. Facebook did not question the authenticity of the documents NBC News obtained.

Facebook essentially offered companies like Amazon unfettered access to its data in exchange for agreeing to advertise on Facebook's platform, according to the documents, only a small fraction of which have been previously reported on. All of this was happening at a time when the company publicly professed to bee safeguarding user data.

As the documents show, CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his board found ways to tap the company's massive trove of user data to reward Facebook's customers and business partners.

The documents, which include emails, webchats, presentations, spreadsheets and meeting summaries, show how Zuckerberg, along with his board and management team, found ways to tap Facebook’s trove of user data - including information about friends, relationships and photos - as leverage over companies it partnered with.

In some cases, Facebook would reward favored companies by giving them access to the data of its users. In other cases, it would deny user-data access to rival companies or apps.

Facebook also leveraged its user data as a cudgel to punish rivals whom it felt were growing too strong.

Considering Facebook is a state-run spook-infested corporation, don't expect there to be any justice for wrongdoing in the USSA.

As Predicted, Governments Around The World Are Pushing Mass Online Censorship

DECENTRALIZED P2P INTERNET ALTERNATIVES: >>>/endpol/1137

A swathe of the world is adopting China’s vision for a tightly controlled internet over the 'unfettered' (read: free & open) American approach, a stunning ideological coup for Beijing that would have been unthinkable less than a decade ago.

Vietnam and Thailand are among the Southeast Asian nations warming to a governance model that twins sweeping content curbs with uncompromising data controls -- because it helps preserve the regime in power. A growing number of the region’s increasingly autocratic governments watched enviously the emergence of Chinese corporate titans from Tencent Holdings Ltd. to Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. -- in spite of draconian online curbs. And now they want the same.

Now, a re-molding of the internet into a tightly controlled and scrubbed sphere in China’s image is taking place from Russia to India. Yet it’s Southeast Asia that’s the economic and geopolitical linchpin to Chinese ambitions and where U.S.-Chinese tensions will come to a head: a region home to more than half a billion people whose internet economy is expected to triple to $240 billion by 2025.

“For authoritarian countries in general, the idea of the state being able to wall off to some extent its internet is deeply appealing,” said Howard French, author of “Everything Under the Heavens: How the Past Helps Shape China’s Push for Global Power. “This is about the regimes’ survival in an authoritarian situation. So that’s why they like to do this. They want to be able to insulate themselves against shocks.”

The UK and many European vassal states are also adopting internet censorship as well, from blocking pornographic content to alledged "fake news" and "hate speech." The EU also recently passed copywrite reform for the internet which will be used to cut access to many sites that currently empower online users.

New Zealand has started to censor their internet after the mass shooting was streamed on US social media, even sites such as 4chan and Zerohedge were blocked after the New Zealand shooting to which those two sites had nothing to do with.

Vietnam’s controversial version went into effect Jan. 1 -- a law BSA/The Software Alliance, which counts Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. among its members -- called chilling and ineffectual. Indonesia, the region’s largest economy, already requires data be stored locally. The Philippines has stepped up what critics call a media crackdown, arrested the head of media outlet Rappler Inc. after it grew critical of President Rodrigo Duterte. And last year, the government of former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak introduced a 'fake news' law used to probe his chief opponent.

“If authorities in the region can convince Silicon Valley to play by their repressive rules, we’re going to see a drop in standards of privacy, surveillance, and freedom of expression on those platforms,” said Tanya O’Carroll, head of technology and human rights at Amnesty International. “How Silicon Valley chooses to engage with the likes of Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia could set major precedents. They must not treat those countries as testbeds to tinker with people’s rights online.”

It looks like, very soon, the free world will have to adopt decentralized p2p networking or be caught up in another censored TV-style corporate broadcast. Ready to utilize the decentralized p2p networks, or go offline? Internet users should seriously be pondering this question about now.

First Ever Image Of Black Hole Reveals The Gates Of Hell, The Point Of No-Return!

Astronomers have captured the first-ever image of a black hole using the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) - a network of eight radio telescopes spanning the globe at various locations including Antarctica, Spain and Chile - which creates an effective telescope the size of the earth.

The results were presented simultaneously by teams in Tokyo, Washington, Brussels, and Santiago de Chile.

"This major discovery provides visual evidence for the existence of black holes and pushes the boundaries of modern science," said the European Commission in Brussels in a Wednesday statement.

The image shows a halo of dust and gas steadily "feeding" the black hole's fuzzy doughnut-shaped accretion disc, according to The Guardian. The colossal black hole is located at the heart of the Messier 87 galaxy in the nearby Virgo galaxy cluster 55-million light-years from Earth.

We are "looking at a region we cannot imagine, the gates of hell, the point of no-return," said Heino Falcke - Professor of Astroparticle Physics and Radio Astronomy at Radbound University Nijmegen and chair of the EHT Science Council. "To me, it’s awe-inspiring, but it’s also important for physics."

At the event horizon, light is bent in a perfect loop around the black hole, meaning if you stood there you would be able to see the back of your own head. The observations also provide one of the most stringent tests to date of Einstein’s theory of general relativity: this predicts a rounded shape of the black hole’s halo, in line with what EHT has observed. -The Guardian

Congress Holds Hearing on Eliminating Free Speech for White Americans

As the most powerful tech companies in the world continue their campaign to suppress the First Amendment rights of White Americans, Congress held a hearing, not to pressure the companies to uphold the U.S. Constitution, but to encourage them to censor further. The House Judiciary Committee and its panel of witnesses almost unanimously agreed that White Americans should no longer be granted First Amendment rights. The only Congressman to object was Tom McClintock. Among the rest, the only debate was whether White nationalists should simply be banned from the Internet or whether they should be prosecuted for their political beliefs.

This is yet another step toward the ultimate goal of our (((globalist))) overlords—a justice system in which White Americans are second-class citizens. They envision a European-style censorship regime in which Whites can be criminally prosecuted for having opinions which differ from the official government ideology.

This hearing was about legal behavior. Yes, there was talk about murders committed by White nationalists, but all of those men have already been prosecuted under existing law. They aren’t concerned with this extremely small number of criminals. What they are concerned with is the large number of law-abiding White Americans fighting back against the tyrannical anti-White state. This hearing was about them—the ordinary White people who want their own nation. The ordinary White people who don’t want to see their race wiped off the face of the earth. They see a White rebellion as the biggest threat to their globalist plan. They know the numbers are growing. They know that if they allow White people to communicate and identify with each other, their plan is doomed.

This is the context of the so-called “Hearing on Hate Crimes and the Rise of White Nationalism.”

The hearing took place in a different universe—a universe where Whites commit the vast majority of crime and target other races for hate crimes at every opportunity. It took place in a universe where vigilante White supremacist groups operate with impunity, instituting a system of terror and racial supremacy. Behind every corner is a White man waiting to attack a poor brown victim. Nonwhites rarely, if ever, commit crime. In this universe, Congress and Jewish legal groups are the only thing saving nonwhites from complete genocide. The Whites are out of control. Drastic measures must be taken. No longer can Whites be afforded the Bill of Rights. They can no longer speak freely, and the state must track their behavior at all times, because they could become violent at any moment. The next hearing might be about whether or not Whites must be thrown into internment camps.

In the real world, the exact opposite is true. There is a demographic that is 13% of the population, yet commits 50% of all crime, but it’s not Whites. There is an epidemic of illegal alien invader violence, which largely goes unpunished. The U.S. has a serious problem with nonwhite violence, while American Whites are among the least violent populations in the entire world. Not only do they refuse to address the real problem, if someone brings it up, they become the very phantom that is being targeted—a violent White supremacist.

The hearing began with Chairman (((Jerrold Nadler))) chastising social media companies for allowing White people too much free speech—what he called “dangerous White nationalist speech.” He claimed that free speech for White people was responsible for the death of many Americans. Nadler, a Jewish nationalist, went on to blame Trump for the (very few) incidents of White nationalist terror acts committed in recent years, including the mosque shooting in New Zealand, which took place the entire way across the world. To Nadler “hate crimes” and “White nationalism” are two intricately linked concepts—he talked about them almost as if they were synonyms. (continued)

RED ALERT! Human Brain-Cloud Interface Being Tested To Spy On Thoughts And Control Subjected Slaves!

Writing in Frontiers in Neuroscience, an international collaboration led by researchers at UC Berkeley and the US Institute for Molecular Manufacturing predicts that exponential progress in nanotechnology, nanomedicine, AI, and computation will lead this century to the development of a "Human Brain/Cloud Interface" (B/CI), that connects brain cells to vast cloud-computing networks in real time.

The B/CI concept was initially proposed by futurist-author-inventor Ray Kurzweil, who suggested that neural nanorobots – brainchild of Robert Freitas, Jr., senior author of the research – could be used to connect the neocortex of the human brain to a "synthetic neocortex" in the cloud.

Freitas' proposed neural nanorobots would provide direct, real-time monitoring and control of signals to and from brain cells.

"These devices would navigate the human vasculature, cross the blood-brain barrier, and precisely autoposition themselves among, or even within brain cells," explains Freitas. "They would then wirelessly transmit encoded information to and from a cloud-based supercomputer network for real-time brain-state monitoring and data extraction."

This cortex in the cloud would allow "Matrix"-style downloading of controlled propaganda to the brain, the group claims.

"With the advance of neuralnanorobotics, we envisage the future creation of 'superbrains' that can harness the thoughts and thinking power of any number of [idiots] in real time."

https://web.archive.org/web/20190412233207/https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-04-future-human-braincloud-interface-people.html

To achieve advanced levels of brain to cloud computing scientists say they will have to pioneer a large number of advancements in technology and medicine, not the least important of which would be systems that allow the seamless transfer of information.

'This challenge includes not only finding the bandwidth for global data transmission,' said Dr. Nuno Martins.

'But also, how to enable data exchange with neurons via tiny devices embedded deep in the brain.'

Even if the technology existed, add researchers, introducing a host of high tech nano particles into one's brain safely might be a little trickier than it sounds.

'A detailed analysis of the biodistribution and biocompatibility of nanoparticles is required before they can be considered for human development,' said Martins.

'Nevertheless, with these and other promising technologies for [brain-computer interface] developing at an ever-increasing rate, an 'internet of thoughts' could become a reality before the turn of the century.'

Ecuador Government Hacked After Julian Assange Arrest

Two days after the Thursday arrest of Julian Assange at Ecuador’s London embassy, several government websites were hacked; including Ecuador’s official website, the Central Bank of Ecuador, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ecuadorian Assembly in the UK, according to Gateway Pundit‘s Cassandra Fairbanks, who was in London last week and documented the run-up to Assange’s arrest.

Looks like at least one Ecuadorian government subdomain has been hijacked. https://t.co/Ivl897ACQF pic.twitter.com/piwFjuRwIJ

— Jacob Riggs (@Riggsbit) April 13, 2019

Concurrent with the breach, a hacking group operating under the name “AL1NE3737” released a database containing the full names and passwords for what appear to be 728 Ecuadorian government employees.

I believe I've just found another database dropped with the full names and bcrypt hashed passwords for what appear to be 728 Ecuadorian gov employees alongside 5 admin credentials, one password of which is MD5 hashed (lol). Not sure exactly where these were sourced from yet.

— Jacob Riggs (@Riggsbit) April 13, 2019

Among those involved in these attacks stand out from the groups / hacker DeathLaw , 5UB5, Cyb3r C0nven Security and Al1ne (Pryzraky).

DoS actions has consistently been against the Ecuadorian government targets, the country that gave Julian Assange to the UK police.” – DefCon Lab

The hacker Al1ne ( Pryzraky ) performed page defacements against and released a list of vulnerable targets related to the government of Ecuador.

As noted by Fairbanks, “The cyber attack was reminiscent of 2010’s “Operation Avenge Assange” which was launched by the broader “Operation Payback” effort. The movement lead to hacktivists hitting companies such as PayPal, PostFinance, Mastercard, Visa, and others who had blocked services to WikiLeaks with a distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack. This is when a website is flooded with fake traffic until it crashes and goes offline.”

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov Says A Multipolar 'New World Order' Is Being Formed

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov declared today that the Western, liberal model of society is dying, and a new world order is taking its place. Lavrov made the comments at his annual meeting with students and professors at the Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Academy, reported Russian state news agency TASS.

“The Western liberal model of development, which particularly stipulates a partial loss of national sovereignty – this is what our Western colleagues aimed at when they invented what they called globalization – is losing its attractiveness and is no more viewed as a perfect model for all. Moreover, many people in the very western countries are skeptical about it,” Lavrov said.

According to him, global development is guided “by processes aimed at boosting multipolarity and what we call a polycentric world order.”

“Clearly, multipolarity and the emergence of new centers of power in every way requires efforts to maintain global stability and search for a balance of interests and compromises, so diplomacy should play a leading role here,” Lavrov went on to say. “Particularly because there are a lot of issues that require generally acceptable solutions. These include regional conflicts, international terrorism, food security and environmental protection. This is why we believe that only diplomacy can help make agreements and reach sustainable decisions that will be accepted by all.

“The US and its allies are trying to impose their approaches on others,” Lavrov noted. “They are guided by a clear desire to preserve their centuries-long dominance in global affairs although from the economic and financial standpoint, the US – alone or with its allies – can no longer resolve all global economic and political issues,” he said.

“In order to preserve their dominance and recover their indisputable authority, they use blackmail and pressure. They don’t hesitate to blatantly interfere in the affairs of sovereign states.”

Tracking Phones, Google Is a Dragnet for the Police

When detectives in a Phoenix suburb arrested a warehouse worker in a murder investigation last December, they credited a new technique with breaking open the case after other leads went cold.

The police told the suspect, Jorge Molina, they had data tracking his phone to the site where a man was shot nine months earlier. They had made the discovery after obtaining a search warrant that required Google to provide information on all devices it recorded near the killing, potentially capturing the whereabouts of anyone in the area.

Investigators also had other circumstantial evidence, including security video of someone firing a gun from a white Honda Civic, the same model that Mr. Molina owned, though they could not see the license plate or attacker.

But after he spent nearly a week in jail, the case against Mr. Molina fell apart as investigators learned new information and released him. Last month, the police arrested another man: his mother’s ex-boyfriend, who had sometimes used Mr. Molina’s car.

The warrants, which draw on an enormous Google database employees call Sensorvault, turn the business of tracking cellphone users’ locations into a digital dragnet for law enforcement. In an era of ubiquitous data gathering by tech companies, it is just the latest example of how personal information — where you go, who your friends are, what you read, eat and watch, and when you do it — is being used for purposes many people never expected.

The Arizona case demonstrates the promise and perils of the new investigative technique, whose use has risen sharply in the past six months, according to Google employees familiar with the requests. It can help solve crimes. But it can also snare innocent people.

Technology companies have for years responded to court orders for specific users’ information. The new warrants go further, suggesting possible suspects and witnesses in the absence of other clues. Often, Google employees said, the company responds to a single warrant with location information on dozens or hundreds of devices.

Law enforcement officials described the method as exciting, but cautioned that it was just one tool.

The Struggle to Thrive Versus jewish Degeneracy

The jews are a race of exploiters: middle-men, merchants, lawyers, usurers, petty bureaucrats, and of course rabbinical religious con-men. As befits a parasitic people, they excel in any of the parasitic professions, and particularly those that profit from the immiseration, impoverishment, and degeneracy of others. Puerile entertainment, the pseudo-education that has replaced true academic learning, pharmaceuticals that treat but don’t cure, advocacy and “social services” supporting non-White immigration, gambling, booze, debt-slavery, pornography, prostitution: jews are heavily represented in each of these fields, if they aren’t in positions of outright dominance over them. From these jewish-controlled positions of degenerative influence, tainted Kosher morality spreads like an infecting fungus through our societies, tenaciously taking root and leaching out our vitality, while allowing corruption and perversions to proliferate with increasing ease. Absent a morality that uplifts the race and inspires it toward improvement, the foundations of the nation become compromised, buckle, then collapse.

One indication of a jewish corruption of morality can be found in the example provided by the manifold JUDEO-christian organizations. There is an unquestioning acceptance of undeserved guilt, followed quickly by ersatz absolution if only we flood our homelands with ungrateful, grasping sub-humans from the Central American sewer or the Continent of Nightmares. The cuckolded JUDEO-christian conception of morality involves a flock of human sheep bleating their approval when an unrepentant pederast advocates for the invasion of White countries with sullen, violent, and wholly incompatible genetic aliens from the very worst corners of the earth. We are told that these moronic and hostile races are coming here for a better life; we are carefully not told that their better life will be at the expense of our safety, prosperity, and eventually our very future. This abhorrent situation is only possible because an ethic of laziness has prevailed; an ethic promoted at every possible opportunity by the jews. Loving and honoring our White heritage and our race means we must defend them against all other heritages and races, both intellectually and on our soil. This is hard, dangerous work that often entails personal sacrifice – and it is work that is impossible if a morality of surrender and unfounded equalitarianism pervade the racial community.

A second common manifestation of a morality debased by malignant jewish influence is a conception of “freedom” reduced to nothing more than a shallow, nihilistic notion, encompassing a complete lack of responsibility, a society permeated with unnatural perversions that are celebrated instead of reviled, and shortsightedly chasing after instant gratification. This is not truly freedom, but instead it is a reckless abdication of the duty to participate in the necessary struggle to ensure the continued existence of our prosperity and the perpetuation of our unique and extraordinarily valuable racial inheritance. It is a morality that leads to the material and spiritual pauperization of the people, followed by the death of the race.

It is no coincidence that the jews, conniving to profit from the destruction of White nations, so consistently promote these degrading and ultimately fatal moralities from every avenue of influence they control. The Hebraic toxins crippling our morality robs us of the drive and discipline that are necessary if we are to strive for the improvement of ourselves and our posterity. (continued)

Good! Man Who Refuses to Pay Taxes Until Abortion Is Defunded Wins Huge Court Victory

A Christian man who refuses to pay his taxes until the government stops funding abortion has won an historic lawsuit against the IRS.

Michael Bowman has refused to file a tax return or pay taxes since 1999. “I’m not a tax protester. I love my country,” he told reporters. “I have a duty to my country. I have a duty to my conscience.”

Lifesitenews.com reports: https://archive.fo/5MYBo

The IRS has sent him numerous warnings over unpaid taxes from 2002 to 2014, and in 2012 the Oregon Department of Revenue began garnishing money from Bowman’s bank account. In response, he started cashing out his paychecks and leaving only a minimum balance in his account.

This, federal prosecutors say, constituted “remov[ing] his income from the reach of taxing authorities.” They indicted him for felony tax evasion in the amount of $356,857, as well as four misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file tax returns.

Bowman’s attorney, Matthew Schindler, argued that his client was fully transparent every step of the way, from disclosing all of his paychecks to cashing them at his own bank, under his own name.

“Like a player collapsing as they lose Twister, the government has reached too far forward and stretched way too far back,” his motion to dismiss read.

Last week, US District Judge Michael Mosman sided with Bowman on the felony charge, ruling that the feds failed to show he attempted to conceal income or deceive the government. Prosecutors remain free to re-introduce the charge in the future, and are currently weighing whether to do so.

Israel's Spacecraft Fails To Land On Moon, Lunar Holocaust Memorial Postponed

The Israeli spacecraft Beresheet did not make the anticipated landing on the moon as planned on Thursday night.

Disappointment set in at the SpaceIL mission center as it became evident that while Beresheet did make it to the moon and won't be capable to carry out it's final mission.

As the spacecraft approached the moon, SpaceIL lost contact with Beresheet several times. The scientists kept hope as the connection was restored, but just minutes before the spacecraft was supposed to touch down, contact was lost once again and it crashed on the moon.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was at hand to watch the landing, said that Israel will continue to try landing on the moon. Minutes later Netanyahu took to the microphone again to promise "Israel will land on the moon!"

Tens of thousands of Israelis had stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to watch the lunar lander’s launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Feb. 21 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

Amazon Workers Caught Spying On Alexa Users

Learn Proper OPSEC: https://archive.fo/kyVms

Millions of mindless consumers use 'smart' speakers and their voice software to play games, find music or trawl for trivia.

Millions more are reluctant to invite the devices and their spy crap into their homes out of concern that someone might be listening. Turns out these kooks are correct, once again!

Amazon.com Inc. employs thousands of people around the world to help improve the Alexa digital assistant powering its line of Echo speakers. The team listens to voice recordings captured in Echo owners’ homes and offices. The recordings are transcribed, annotated and then fed back into the software as part of an effort to eliminate gaps in Alexa’s understanding of human speech and help it better respond to commands.

The Alexa voice review process, described by seven people who have worked on the program, highlights the often-overlooked human role in training software algorithms. In marketing materials Amazon says Alexa “lives in the cloud and is always getting smarter.”

The team comprises a mix of contractors and full-time Amazon employees who work in outposts from Boston to Costa Rica, India and Romania, according to the people, who signed nondisclosure agreements barring them from speaking publicly about the program.

For anyone in the know, typically nondisclosure agreements are used when employees of a firm are working for governmental agancies!

They work nine hours a day, with each reviewer parsing as many as 1,000 audio clips per shift, according to two workers based at Amazon’s Bucharest office, which takes up the top three floors of the Globalworth building in the Romanian capital’s up-and-coming Pipera district. The modern facility stands out amid the crumbling infrastructure and bears no exterior sign advertising Amazon’s presence.

Occasionally the listeners pick up things Echo owners likely would rather stay private: a woman singing badly off key in the shower, say, or a child screaming for help. The teams use internal chat rooms to share files when they need help parsing a muddled word — or come across an amusing recording.

WELL THERE YOU GO. NO PRIVACY!

AGENDA 21: Another 'Bomb Cyclone' Being Geo-engineered To Destroy US Midwest

>>>/endpol/1135

As the geo-engineered storm reaches "bomb cyclone" criteria on Thursday, more than 200 million people in the United States will feel the impact of this dangerous weather system sweeping across the Plains and Midwest.

Heavy snow has developed and will continue to fall on the northern Plains, a portion of the central Plains and Upper Midwest into Thursday night as arctic air rushes in, reported Reuters.

Into the overnight, heavy snow will extend from northeast Colorado and northwest Kansas through Nebraska, South Dakota, southeast North Dakota, Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

"It is a bomb cyclone, the second we’ve had," said Brian Hurley, a meteorologist at National Weather Service (NWS) in College Park, Maryland. "This is like a slow-moving snowstorm inside a hurricane."

PowerOutage.Us shows 13,660 homes and businesses are without power in Minnesota, and about 9,500 in South Dakota around 7 am est.

Between 4 am and 8 am, there are 61 airport delays across the U.S., mostly seen at Minneapolis−Saint Paul International Airport, according to Flight Aware.

The region in focus is the Central U.S., the same area where a "bomb cyclone" hit last month and unleashed deadly flooding and blizzards. A little over $3 billion in damage was done to property, crops, and livestock in Nebraska and Iowa alone.

"The heaviest snow so far is piling up in South and North Dakota, with some areas getting 17 inches, and more is on the way," Hurley said. "We’re expected another 10 to 15 inches before this is done."

The snow adds new woes to Midwest farmlands which have been slammed by President's Trade War and last month's wealther modification HAARP warfare.

It is clear this is a deliberate attack against America, designed to destroy us and send us into the third world!

Scientists Discover New Method To Destroy Cancer Tumors Using Sound Waves

A recent breakthrough in high-intensity focused ultrasound therapy (HIFU) technology has proven its use as an effective cancer treatment. A multi-institutional research team from China developed a semi-enclosed, spherical cavity transducer that can produce a focused, standing-wave field with a subwavelength-scale focal region and extremely high ultrasound intensity. The spherical cavity transducer appeared to generate tighter focal regions and greater pressure amplitude compared with the traditional concave spherical transducer. Researchers said the level of intensity generated by the new transducer design may lead to significant improvements in HIFU therapy. The findings were published in the Journal of Applied Physics.

HIFU is a non-invasive, targeted treatment that makes use of sound waves to eradicate cancer cells. HIFU uses an ultrasonic transducer to convert electrical signals into sound waves, then concentrates ultrasound into a small focal region to raise the temperature to more than 65 decrees Celsius, thereby killing cancer cells in the process without inducing damage to surrounding tissues. The technique works in the same manner as focusing sunlight through a lens, which helps eliminate the disease-causing cells.

HIFU can be used as an alternative to traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and surgery.

High-intensity focused ultrasound therapy proved to be a highly-effective cancer treatment in various studies and clinical trials.

For instance, researchers at the University College Hospital in London examined 625 men with prostate cancer and found that 93 percent of patients who underwent HIFU alone remained cancer-free at five years following the treatment, without requiring surgery or radiotherapy. Data also showed that only one to two percent of patients who had HIFU treatment suffered long-term urinary incontinence, compared with 10 to 20 percent of patients who had surgery. In addition, only 15 percent of patients in the HIFU group developed erectile dysfunction compared with 30 to 60 percent of surgical patients.

“The results of this study are impressive and have the potential to transform prostate cancer treatment for many men in the future. It is extremely exciting technology and these results show that in men diagnosed early by prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood testing, this targeted therapy could be as effective as surgery to remove the whole prostate gland or radiotherapy and cause far fewer side effects,” said study co-author Tim Dudderidge.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/12/161214115035.htm
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/pa/article-3500861/Treatment-prostate-cancer-sound-waves-offer-fewer-effects.html

The findings were presented at an annual meeting of the European Association of Urology in Munich, Germany.

A British clinical trial funded by the Medical Research Council has also found that 95 percent of patients who underwent HIFU therapy for prostate cancer remained cancer-free at 12 months after the treatment. The researchers also found that none of the respondents suffered urinary incontinence during the follow-up period.

Researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada have developed a new technique that uses focused sound waves to activate minute particles known as nanodroplets. According to the researchers, the new technique was as accurate as using needles in biopsy.

“With a little bit of ultrasound energy, nanodroplets phase-change into microbubbles. That’s important because ultrasound can really oscillate these microbubbles. The microbubbles absorb of the ultrasound energy and then act like boxing gloves to punch the tumor cells and knock little vesicles off. That led us to detect some genes that were indicative of the aggressiveness of the tumour. That’s potentially very powerful. You can get a genetic characterization of the tumour, but do it relatively non-invasively,” said engineering professor Roger Zemp.

The findings were published in the journal Cancer Research.

Democrats Furious After Ohio ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Ban Officially Becomes Law

Ohio Gov. Bill DeWine has defiantly signed the “heartbeat” abortion ban into law, despite fierce opposition from Democrats.

The Republican governor signed the bill after the state legislature approved the legislation on Wednesday.

Foxnews.com reports:
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ohio-abortion-law-heartbeat-governor

John Kasich, DeWine’s Republican predecessor, vetoed the measure twice while in office. He said such a law would create a costly court battle and likely be found unconstitutional.

Before DeWine signed the legislation Thursday, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said they were preparing a constitutional challenge to the law on behalf of Pre-Term Cleveland and three other Ohio abortion clinics.

“Similar versions of this unconstitutional abortion ban stand 0-4 in federal court. Soon to be 0-5,” the Ohio chapter tweeted, while the ACLU said: “We’ll see you in court.”

The bill — which makes no exceptions for rape or incest — is among the most restrictive abortion measures in the country.

Other states like Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississipi, Missouri, South Carolina and West Virginia are among the states that have either passed “heartbeat” legislation or are hoping to do so.

This comes as states like New York, New Mexico, Maryland, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia, among other Democratic-leaning states, are supporting bills that allow abortion up to the moment of birth.

Russia Plans Total State Control Over Internet, Re-routing Internet Traffic Through Domestic Cables

DECENTRALIZED P2P INTERNET ALTERNATIVES: >>>/endpol/1137

Russian lawmakers approved Thursday a bill that would expand government control over the internet and whose opponents fear heralds a new era of widespread censorship.

The bill would install equipment to route Russian internet traffic through servers in the country. That would increase the power of state agencies to control information and block messaging applications, while users would find it harder to circumvent government restrictions.

The bill’s backers say it’s a defense measure in case Russia is cut off from the internet by the United States or other hostile powers.

Nikolai Zemtsov, a lawmaker who backed the bill, told The Associated Press that Russia could cooperate with ex-Soviet countries on a “Runet” where news from critical Western media was restricted.

“It could be that in our limited, sovereign internet we will only be stronger,” he said.

But the move has caused concern in a society that has become used to an open internet. Several thousand people took to Moscow’s streets in protest last month.

Along with Russia and China, the UK and EU have both been planning similar censorship of the internet by passing draconian internet censorship bills.

Someday, the internet may turn into nothing more than a cable TV network. Backup whatever it is you desire now, while you still can.

UK Dictatorship Rejects Britian's Right To Vote, Nullifies Brexit

The UK’s so-called “powers that be” are betraying Brexit through a mix of social engineering and mock elections in order craft the false narrative that it’s actually the “people’s will” to remain in the EU.

By now it’s obvious enough that PM May represents the vested interests of the UK’s so-called “powers that be” by betraying Brexit and doing all that she can to prevent her country’s exit from the EU. Her failed attempts to seal a deal with the bloc for a so-called “soft Brexit” were never anything more than a ruse because her people vote for a clean split from the EU that was later deceptively described as a so-called “hard Brexit” in order to invent the idea of its foil that she was then tasked with implementing as a “publicly plausible” time-buying measure. In reaction to the expected opposition that she’s encountered in parliament after humiliating her country on the world stage and over-complicating what would otherwise have been a manageable divorce, she’s now dangerously flirting with the idea of second referendum on whether to honor the spirit of Brexit or not.

While the public at large is being led to believe that this is just the latest chaotic outcome of her bungled Brexit, it’s very likely that this was planned long ago for official introduction into the discourse at large at this pivotal moment after the UK has already passed the original deadline for leaving the EU.

The state has engaged in so much incessant fearmongering about the socio-economic consequences of Brexit that some polls suggest that the majority of voters would nowadays prefer to “Bremain” if another election were to be held, a scenario that had originally been presented as a “fringe fantasy” but is actually becoming a reality given the latest developments. The electorate wouldn’t have reached this “conclusion” on their own unless they were guided to it through the social engineering that they were subject to since the referendum, though opinion polls don’t hold political weight in a self-professed “democracy” unless they tangibly translate into votes during an official election, which is why a second referendum might be held to “legitimize” the efforts to betray Brexit once and for all. It doesn’t matter to the “masterminds” behind this plot what the domestic consequences of going against the people’s original will might be since all that they care about is the immediate objective of stopping Brexit.

That said, the only foreseeable way to offset this scenario is if responsible members of the UK’s permanent military, intelligence, and diplomatic bureaucracies (“deep state”) intensively work behind the scenes to ensure that Brexit does indeed happen like the majority of voters originally wanted. It can only be speculated how this might occur in practice, but there’s evidently a possibility that it could succeed seeing as how visibly divided the British government is over this issue. The globalist forces aligned with the financial interests of the City of London clearly don’t want Brexit to happen.

As a Canadian father fights to stop court-ordered testosterone treatments for his 14-year-old daughter, U.S. experts warn there’s an increasing danger that more and more American parents will find themselves in a similar heartrending predicament. “Yes, it is really that bad,” Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatrics, told LifeSiteNews. “Parents are losing their right to protect their children from this dangerous medical experiment, and extended family members fare no better,” she told LifeSiteNews.

The general rule that individuals under age 18 cannot consent to medical treatment is being tossed out the window when it comes to sex transitioning, she said. Children are started on puberty-blockers as young as nine, and “under the ‘guidance’ of gender ‘experts’ ... girls have been allowed to consent to double mastectomies as young as age 13,” said Cretella. “There are gender surgeons pushing to eliminate age restrictions on the removal of reproductive organs and genital surgeries.” That’s echoed by Emilie Kao, director of Heritage Foundation’s DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society.

“The number of pediatric gender clinics in the U.S. has grown exponentially from one clinic in 2007 to 45 clinics around the country,” she told LifeSiteNews. “Transgender activists and trans-affirming doctors are rushing children into hormonal treatments at as young as 11 years old,” Kao said, “even though the best statistics show that 80–95 percent of gender-dysphoric children become comfortable with their own bodies after passing through puberty without interventions."

Parents losing right to oppose “transition” treatments

Moreover, the transgender lobby is waging a successful three-wave campaign for government-coerced transition of minor children, with “removal of a child based on accusations of medical neglect,” Cretella told the Federalist’s Margot Cleveland in February. The first wave involved intervention during family court custody disputes; the second involves “emergency room staff, therapists, or doctors” reporting parents “who refuse to affirm their child’s false gender” to Child Protection Services; and the third wave, soon coming, will involve schools launching investigations of parents who oppose a child’s transition. The gender activists are also enlisting the aid of workers in multiple levels of government.

At a recent United States Professional Association for Transgender Health (USPATH) conference, a panel cited “training” Department of Human Services workers “in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey” to tell parents who oppose transitioning “you’re creating an unsafe environment for your child,” wrote Cleveland. Parents are often told that unless the child’s gender choice is affirmed, the child at an increased risk for suicide, a strategy documented by 4thwavenow.com, a “community of parents & others concerned about the medicalization of gender-atypical youth and rapid-onset gender dysphoria (ROGD).” “Balking parents must be ‘educated’, cajoled into going against their deepest protective instincts. If this indoctrination process doesn’t work, there’s the frequent threat your kid will kill themselves because of your hesitations,” notes one post.

“This weaponization of adult self-harm statistics is wielded by activists, clinicians, and the media alike, to terrorize parents into handing their offspring off to be drugged, sterilized, and (increasingly) surgically ‘corrected’ by therapists and doctors who are confident they know best when it comes to other people’s children.” In a highly publicized case last February, an Ohio Christian couple lost custody of their 17-year-old daughter to her maternal grandparents after they opposed her testosterone injections. “Around the country, similar cases are arising in the courts,” Kao said.

AIPAC gathering is full of lies and liars

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has just completed its annual summit in Washington. It claims that 18,000 supporters attended the event, which concluded with a day of lobbying Congress by the attendees. Numerous American politicians addressed the gathering and it is completely reasonable to observe that the meeting constituted the most powerful gathering of people dedicated to promoting the interests of a foreign nation ever witnessed in any country in the history of the world.

There are a number of things that one should understand about the Jewish state of Israel and its powerful American domestic lobby. First of all, the charge that the actions of The Lobby (referred to with capital letters because of its uniqueness and power) inevitably involves dual or even singular allegiance based on religion or tribe to a country where the lobbyist does not actually reside is completely correct by definition of what AIPAC is and why it exists. It claims to work to “ensure that the Jewish state is safe, strong and secure” through “foreign aid, government partnerships, [and] joint anti-terrorism efforts…,” all of which involve the U.S. as the donor and Israel as the recipient.

Being a citizen of a country is not just an accident of birth. It requires loyalty to the interests of that country and to one’s fellow citizens. No two countries have identical interests, something that is particularly true when one is considering Israel, an ethno-religious autocracy, and the United States, where The Lobby works assiduously to compel American government at all levels to adopt positions that are beneficial to Israel and almost invariably harmful to U.S. interests. Asserting that the two nations have nearly identical interests is little more than a fraud.

Second, there is the claim that Israel benefits American security. That is also a lie. Washington’s relationship with Israel, which is now more subservient than it ever has been, is a major liability that is and always has been damaging to both American regional and global interests. The recent decisions to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights were ill-conceived and have been condemned by the world community, including by nearly all of America’s genuine close allies.

The harm done by the Israeli connection to policy formulation in Washington and to U.S. troops based in the Middle East has been noted both by Admiral Thomas Moorer and General David Petraeus, with Moorer decrying how “If the American people understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.” Petraeus complained to a Senate Committee that U.S. favoritism towards Israel puts American soldiers based in the Middle East at risk. He was quickly forced to recant, however.

Former CIA Deputy Director Admiral Bobby Inman has also rejected the claim that Israel is a security asset by observing that “Israeli spies have done more harm and have damaged the United States more than the intelligence agents of all other countries on earth combined… They are the gravest threat to our national security.” Inman was referring to American Jewish spy Jonathan Pollard, who stole for Israel an entire roomful of the most highly classified defense information. Israeli spies, including current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hollywood movie producer Arnon Milchan, also participated in the systematic theft of weapons grade uranium and nuclear triggers in the 1960s so Israel could secretly create a nuclear weapons arsenal. The FBI, for its part, in its annual counterintelligence report, consistently identifies Israel as the “friendly” country that spies most persistently against the U.S. FBI Agents have testified that there are very few prosecutions of the swarms of Israeli spies due to “political pressure.” (Continued)

Stay Dependant On The Medical System? Lose ALL Your Freedoms!

They tell us that we are “free”, but it is just a lie.

In every country in the western world, there is layer after layer of rules and regulations that strictly govern just about every area of our lives. But until just recently, there were certain lines that still had not been crossed. One of those lines has to do with bodily integrity. We have a fundamental right to say what goes into our bodies and what doesn’t go into our bodies. When any government violates that fundamental right, no matter how good the intentions are, they have entered the realm of tyranny.

And let there be no doubt – what is taking place in New York City right now is tyranny. On Tuesday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio used the pretense of “a public health emergency” to order mandatory vaccinations for all of the Orthodox Jews living in Williamsburg…

Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a public health emergency on Tuesday and has ordered mandatory vaccinations for people who may have been exposed to the virus in parts of Williamsburg amid a growing measles outbreak.

Perhaps the mayor actually believes that he is saving lives by doing this. But it is still tyranny.

In a free society, we would have the right to choose whether we want to put vaccines into our bodies or not. But in certain parts of New York City at the moment, a state of medical martial law now exists.

According to one local news report, members of the Health Department are actually going to be hunting down the unvaccinated by going through their medical records…

Under the order, unvaccinated people, including children over 6 months old, who live or work within zip codes 11205, 11206, 11221 and 11249 will be required to get an MMR vaccine.

Those who have not received the vaccine or do not have evidence of immunity may be given a violation and could be fined $1,000.

Wow, one wonders why no one in their right mind would want to live in a leftist mega-city.

Is this still America? NO, not at all the America most of us were born in.

I am having a hard time believing that this is actually happening. There is no way that people would have ever put up with such nonsense 40 or 50 years ago.

Even New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, is admitting that this effort to force mandatory vaccinations on city residents may be unconstitutional…

“Look it’s a serious public health concern, but it’s also a serious First Amendment issue and it is going to be a constitutional, legal question,” Cuomo said.

But if the control freak Anti-American DESPOTS that run New York City can get away with this, they will set a very important national precedent.

Police State USSA: Michigan Government Creating 'Thought Crime' Database To Track REAL NEWS

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel – who, for all intents and purposes, looks suspiciously like a transgender – has decided to launch a full-scale crusade against the First Amendment.

According to reports, Nessel is planning to create a “hate crime unit” as part of Michigan’s government, the purpose of which won’t necessarily be to prosecute “hate crimes” – which aren’t a real thing anyway, by the way – but to actually police the speech and thoughts of Michigan residents to make sure they align with official government ideology.

By creating a database of people who think for themselves, Nessel is on record as stating that she plans to keep an all-seeing-eye on people who commit “thought violations” – which aren’t real crimes, according to the United States Constitution.

“It is important to understand that these are not convicted criminals or people who[m] the state has reason to believe have committed or are planning to commit a crime,” writes Jay Lorenz for FashTheNation.com about the people Nessel is planning to target with her unconstitutional “hate crime unit.”

“The new database is specifically designed to target law-abiding Americans,” he adds.

During a recent public announcement, Nessel admitted that she’s planning to partner with the shamed and disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an anti-white hate group posing as an “anti-hate” group, to compile her “thought criminal” database.

It’s important to remember that most of the groups on the SPLC’s “hate group” list are merely associations of people who believe in things like traditional marriage between one man and one woman, for instance, as well as groups comprised of people with white skin who simply celebrate their ethnic heritage.

“The SPLC list is simply a list of people with whom the SPLC disagrees,” Lorenz further writes. “The government will investigate citizens based not on their actions, but what their political opinions are.”

Mueller Report to Be Released Soon, Along With Investigation Into FBI FISA Abuse

The full report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be released “within a week,” according to Attorney General William Barr.

Barr, speaking to the House Appropriations subcommittee Tuesday, said the process to redact sensitive and classified information was going “very well,” and he would be able to release the long-awaited report in a matter of days.

Dailywire.com reports: “This process is going along very well, and my original timetable of being able to release this by mid-April stands,” Barr said. “I think that from my standpoint, within a week I will be in a position to release the report to the public.”

Barr’s appearance before Congress marks the first time he has spoken publicly to lawmakers after Mueller wrapped up his investigation and the attorney general published a summary of its findings on March 24. Days later, on March 29, Barr sent a letter to Congress identifying the four categories of information that needed to be redacted: Grand Jury information, material that could compromise “sensitive sources and methods” for the intelligence community, information related to ongoing investigations by other departments, and “information that would unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.”

At the time he wrote that letter, Barr said he expected the report to be released in “mid-April.” It appears Barr’s initial timeline assessment was reasonable.

US Attorney General Bill Barr has assembled a team to finally investigate Barack Obama’s corrupt FBI and DOJ.

The probe will focus on actions taken during the investigation of Trump’s campaign going back to the summer of 2016, according to a source who spoke to Bloomberg.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: It appears AG Barr is investigating allegations made by Republican lawmakers for over two years that the Trump-Russia investigation was corrupt from the beginning with anti-Trump FBI and DOJ officials who weaponized the agencies to target a political opponent.

“I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016,” Barr told the House Appropriations Committee earlier Tuesday.

Bill Barr’s internal investigation by the Justice Department is separate from the Inspector General’s probe.

Barr told Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL) that Inspector General Horowitz is investigating the FISA abuse during the Obama administration to spy on Trump. The Attorney General said the report will be completed in May or June.

Aderholt on Tuesday also asked Bill Barr if his department was investigating how DOJ and FBI officials used a “salacious and unverified dossier as a predicate for a FISA order on a US citizen.”

UK To Censor PRIVATE Messaging Apps, All Social Media Platforms

In their latest censorship proposal, the United Kingdom will be regulating the speech of its citizens, even within private messages.

Companies that fail to live up to requirements will face huge fines, and senior directors who are proven to have been negligent will be held personally liable. They may also find access to their sites blocked (just like what happens in China)…

The regulator will be tasked with ensuring social media companies tackle a range of online problems, including:

Incitement of violence, encouragement of self-harm or suicide, spreading news that the government does not approve of, online bullying, 'inappropriate material' (which could be porn or just about anything else) and "abusive" content (which could be classified as anything snotty bureaucrats are offended by).

Kiss your online freedom goodbye UK. You know what? Sometimes people have to experience true evil before they understand.

Meanwhile Brits better get a hold of Tor, I2P and a private VPN. Also, having some p2p platforms backed up such as Retroshare, Tribler, Soulseek, IPFS Desktop and Fopnu might come in handy too.

Whistle-Blowing Clinicians Demand An End To Transgender Mutilation of Children

Five members of staff from Britain’s only NHS gender clinic for children have quit over fears children as young as three are going through unnecessary gender reassignment treatment.

Clinicians from the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS)

warn that the clinic is risking a “live experiment” by sending hundreds of children for life-changing medical intervention without sufficient evidence of its long-term effects.

The Mail Online reports: https://archive.fo/wMIsa

It was feared some gay children struggling with their sexual identity are being incorrectly diagnosed as transgender.

Specialists also worried that some of the youngsters were being referred and pressured into having gender change treatment after suffering homophobic bullying.

All five former staff members were part of the team deciding if youngsters should be given hormone blockers to stop their development before puberty, according to the Times.

The patients then take a course of cross-sex hormones at the age of 16 depending on whether they want to develop as male or female.

At least 18 staff have reportedly quit the controversial clinic over the past three years, citing fears not enough checks are being done to correctly diagnose child patients.

One of the five whistleblowers even said the only reason many stayed in their post was to prevent more children from having the treatment.

Referrals to the clinic risen in recent years, with 94 in 2010, rising to 2,519 by last year, with the youngest patient aged just three.

One of the clinicians told The Times: ‘I felt for the last two years what kept me in the job was the sense there was a huge number of children in danger.

‘I was there to protect children from being damaged.’

Trump Fires Head Of Secret Service

Following former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's Sunday resignation due to her "abysmal failure" to curb the crisis at the southern border (indeed, the number of migrants and asylum seekers pouring into the US has reached unprecedented levels this year), President Trump appears to be embarking on a purge of all Nielsen's allies and direct reports - starting with Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles.

According to CNN, Trump has asked Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to fire Alles. Alles is reportedly aware that he will soon be pushed out, but his departure hasn't yet been made official. One of CNN's sources described Alles' ouster as part of a "near systematic purge" as Stephen Miller, who has been charged with running the administration's immigration policy, consolidates power. One official described Miller's purge as a "wholesale decapitation" of DHS.

"There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation's second-largest national security agency," one senior administration official says.

And Alles's likely won't be the last head to roll at DHS. Two other top officials are reportedly on their way out.

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel's John Mitnick are expected to be gone soon, and the White House is eyeing others to be removed.

A former marine, Alles was recommended for the post by former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who ran the department before his move to the West Wing, per the AP.

Notably, Alles firing may also be related to an embarrassing episode for the secret service after a Chinese woman illegally entered the President's Mar-a-Lago club carrying four cell phones, two passports, electronic devices and a thumb-drive containing malware. Whatever the reason, the White House and DHS declined to comment to CNN on the matter.

The administration has already found its replace for Alles. Sarah Sanders said the president has picked James Murray, a career member of the agency, to take over.

Sarah Sanders statement: “President Trump has selected James M. Murray, a career member of the USSS, to take over as director beginning in May.”

Good! Judge Rules Against New York’s New Unconstitutional, Tyrannical Vaccine Law

A state Supreme Court judge has ruled against New York’s emergency order banning unvaccinated children from public places.

The judge made the ruling Friday on the legality of Rockland County Executive Ed Day’s order, which is part of a totalitarian effort to force the measles vaccine on children.

ABC 7 reports:
https://web.archive.org/web/20190408120717/https://abc7ny.com/health/judge-rules-against-rockland-countys-state-of-emergency/5235890/

The 30-day order enacted on March 26 banned unvaccinated people under 18 years old from gathering places including schools, stores, churches and public transportation.

The lawsuit was filed by civil rights lawyer Michael Sussman on behalf of parents of unvaccinated students at Green Meadow Waldorf School in Chestnut Ridge. Sussman called Day’s action “arbitrary and capricious.”

The judge granted a temporary injunction, which for the time being, will end the state of emergency. This means unvaccinated children will once again be allowed to go to school and out in public.

The judge said such emergency orders cannot exceed five days. He also noted that 166 measles cases in a population of 330,000 people over six months doesn’t constitute an “epidemic” meriting an emergency declaration.

Regardless of what your position on vaccinations is, any rational person cannot deny that the ingredients in vaccines are toxic. In fact, almost every single ingredient in any immunization is toxic to the human body. Besides the vitamins and minerals, nobody in their right mind would drink a concoction with any one or combination of most of the vaccine ingredients. Most vaccinations are directly injected into our bodies, allowing the ingredients to directly enter the bloodstream, which rationally, seems like an even more dangerous approach.

Vaccine ingredients (adjuvants and preservatives) and substances used in the manufacturing process, including vaccine-production media that are present only in trace quantities, include: sucrose, fructose, dextrose, potassium phosphate, FD&C Yellow #6, aluminum lake dye, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, aluminum hydroxide, benzethonium chloride, lactose, aluminum potassium sulfate, peptone, bovine extract, thimerosal, ammonium sulfate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, bovine extract), calf serum, aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxphosphate sulfate, squalene and ethanol. Vaccinations also contain many inorganic minerals, vitamins, amino acids, salts, and sugars.

Much of the vaccine material will not leave the body without assistance, especially with a typical modern lifestyle and diet.

Good! Italy’s Populist Government Seeks To Nationalize Gold Reserves From Central Bank Control

Two weeks ago, somewhat out of the blue, ECB President Mario Draghi issued an odd statement confirming that the European Central Bank needs to approve any operation in the foreign reserves of euro zone countries, including gold and large foreign currency holdings.

“The ECB shall approve both the operations in foreign reserve assets remaining with the NCBs (national central banks)...and Member States’ transactions with their foreign exchange working balances above a certain threshold,”

“The purpose of this competence is to ensure consistency with the exchange rate and monetary policy of the Union.”

Specifically, Draghi made this statement to two Italian members of the European Parliament.

At the time it did not seem notable for any reason other than its peculiar timing, but now things are starting to make more sense as The Wall Street Journal reports that Italy’s ruling populists pushed ahead this week with efforts to seize control of the central bank and its gold reserves.

Complaining that hundreds of thousands of small individual investors lost billions of dollars after several Italian banks failed in recent years, the anti-establishment '5 Star Movement' and the nationalist 'League', depict the central bank as a symbol of a technocratic elite aloof from the needs of ordinary Italians.

“We need a change of course at the Bank of Italy if we think about what happened in the last years,” said Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio, leader of the 5 Star Movement.

Five Star and the League have repeatedly attacked the Bank of Italy for not preventing the banking crises, and blamed it for the losses suffered by mom-and-pop savers who had bought bank shares and bonds.

“If you are here with your current account in the red, it’s because the people who were supposed to control things didn’t do so,” League’s leader, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, told a group of former investors in Banca Popolare di Vicenza, which was liquidated in 2017.

And this week saw Italian lawmakers from 5 Star asking Parliament to pass two draft laws:

One law would instruct the central bank’s owners, most of them private banks, to sell their shares to the Italian Treasury at prices from the 1930s.

The other law would declare the Italian people to be the owners of the Bank of Italy’s reserve of 2451.8 metric tons of gold, worth around $102 billion at current prices.

BOOM! Saudis Threaten To Dump USD-Oil Trades Over OPEC Anti-Trust Bill

Three year ago - almost to the day - Saudi Arabia rattled its first sabre towards the United States, with an implicit threat to dump US Treasuries over Congress' decision to allow the Saudis to be held responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

In a stunning report at the time by the NYTimes, Saudi Arabia told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Then, six months ago, the Saudis once again threatened to weaponize their wealth as the biggest importer of arms from America in the world.

And now, Reuters reports, citing three unidentified people familiar with Saudi energy policy, Saudi Arabia is threatening to drop the dollar as its main currency in selling its oil if the U.S. passes a bill that exposes OPEC members to U.S. antitrust lawsuits.

While the death of the petrodollar has long been predicted (as the petroyuan gathers momentum), this is the most direct threat yet to the USDollar's exorbitant privilege...

“The Saudis know they have the dollar as the nuclear option,” one of the sources familiar with the matter said.

“The Saudis say: let the Americans pass NOPEC and it would be the U.S. economy that would fall apart,” another source said.

Riyadh reportedly communicated the threat to senior U.S. energy officials, one person briefed on Saudi oil policy told Reuters

As Reuters details, NOPEC, or the No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act, was first introduced in 2000 and aims to remove sovereign immunity from U.S. antitrust law, paving the way for OPEC states to be sued for curbing output in a bid to raise oil prices.

However, if a long-standing U.S. ally such as Saudi Arabia joined the club of non-dollar oil sellers it would be a far more significant move likely to gain traction within the industry.

Perhaps this explains why Russia has been dumping dollars in favors of gold in recent months...

TREASON: Trump's DHS Dumping Illegals Into The US At RECORD Rates, Worse Than Obama's Regime

DELIBERATE DESTABILIZATION: >>>/endpol/1132

The United States is on the verge of self-destruction. President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is continuing its mass release of invaders into the interior of the United States, most recently releasing more than 17,000 migrants in less than two weeks.

According to newly obtained data by Breitbart News, DHS released about 17,065 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S. between March 21 and April 1, a mere 12-day period. Since December 21, 2018, DHS has released about 125,565 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the country.

The Catch and Release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities and dropping them off with the promise that they will show up for their immigration and asylum hearings, sometimes years later. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.

Since December 21, 2018, DHS has released:

12,745 invaders into the San Diego, California area
22,000 invaders into the Phoenix, Arizona area
37,500 invaders into the El Paso, Texas area
53,320 invaders into the San Antonio, Texas area

In the last 12 days, DHS released nearly 6,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the San Antonio area, alone, forcing American communities to absorb the influx of soaring illegal immigration levels at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been tasked with ALLOWING illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S., ICE officials have confirmed, under the direction of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Acting ICE Director Ron Vitiello.

At current rates, DHS is on track to release about 500,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S. by the end of this year.

Meanwhile, while the US government is allowing and aiding the destruction of the United States of America, the US military has stood down and will allow the death of America to unfold.

No one is here to save us. Save yourselves: >>>/prepare/1

Zionist Neo-cons Panic As Iran To Establish First Ever Mediterranean Port On Syrian Coast

It's a neocon nightmare come true: for the first time in modern history Iran is set establish a Mediterranean port on the Syrian coast.

In a breaking exclusive, Asia Times reports that Iran has leased a section of the port of Latakia, on the northwest Syrian coast in close vicinity to the Russian Navy, which will end the Kremlin's exclusive foreign presence on the coastal district. The Asia Times report provides the following details:

...from next October the Russians will no longer have the neighborhood to themselves – as Iran has leased parts of the port of Latakia...

The Syrian move comes in response to an official Iranian request, presented to Damascus last February. Realizing that they were unable to establish a permanent military presence like that of the Russians, or to illegally grab territory like the Turks, the Iranians settled for long-term economic influence in Syria in order to maintain a foothold in a crucial part of the region.

Both counties are currently under crippling US sanctions, with Washington recently announcing that it would seek to enforce a total ban on all Iranian and Syrian oil shipping activity, even in international waters.

Iran, as a longtime ally of Syria's Assad, has given front line assistance to the Syrian army and allied militias like Hezbollah since near the start of the war that engulfed the country which began in 2011 and exploded into nation-wide fighting and chaos by 2012.

Tehran has consistently helped Damascus weather the storm of both the externally fueled regime change war and collapsed economy that followed in its wake.

The Iranian lease of the port of Latakia is set to take effect next October, according to the Asia Times.

Meanwhile, the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia — on the other side of the proxy war — have long feared the so-called "Shia land bridge" connecting Tehran with pro-Shia forces from neighboring Baghdad to Damascus to Beirut.

An Iranian port on the Syrian coastline would bring this scenario to ultimate fulfillment, perhaps beyond what Washington defense planners had ever imagined in the first place.

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1136

It can often feel like our protests about matters like glyphosate in food are falling on deaf ears, but one retailer is poised to take a harsh stance against the dangerous chemical – and we can only hope other businesses will follow its lead.

Costco, the fifth largest retailer in the U.S., will reportedly stop selling the popular glyphosate-based weedkiller Roundup as the product finds itself at the center of a number of lawsuits filed by people who say it caused their cancer.

The founder of Moms Across America, Zen Honeycutt, says that three people within the company confirmed to her that they would not be ordering Roundup nor any other glyphosate herbicides in their spring shipments. Administrators for the company have told media outlets that the product was pulled from store floors on corporate orders, and it’s a move that applies to every location.

Last year, a 46-year-old school groundskeeper and father of three, Dewayne Johnson, successfully sued Monsanto for causing his Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after the glyphosate products he had to use at work did not bear a cancer warning label. He was awarded $289 million, although it was later lowered to $78 million on appeal.

Monsanto is currently facing thousands of similar lawsuits. The product has already been banned in several countries because of its health dangers, but strong government ties – including a cozy relationship with the EPA – have enabled it to continue to be sold in places like the U.S.

Update: Natural News has contacted Costco by phone and confirmed Roundup / glyphosate is no longer be sold in Costco stores. No official statement has been issued on the matter, however.

Facebook Bans Free Speech for White People

Last week, Facebook announced its plan to ban all content and pages which show support for White people. The ban begins this week. From the official statement:

“Today we’re announcing a ban on praise, support and representation of white nationalism and white separatism on Facebook and Instagram, which we’ll start enforcing next week. It’s clear that these concepts are deeply linked to organized hate groups and have no place on our services.”

This is not out of a principled stance against nationalism, but an extreme anti-White bias. Facebook declined to ban nationalism for any other group. In fact, criticism of Zionism (Jewish nationalism) will get you banned from the platform. This is part of an ongoing effort to make Whites second-class citizens in America.

Previously, Facebook decided to allow White nationalist (but not White supremacist) content under the reasoning that it would also have to ban nationalist content for other races. This is logical. However, the SPLC, ADL, and other Jewish groups pressured Facebook to abandon logic and embrace rabid anti-White hatred. After months of lobbying, the Zionist groups which now decide what content can go on every major social media site got Facebook to institute the anti-White policy. The official stance of the site is that White nationalism is uniquely evil, and that White people themselves are uniquely evil.

In a September 2018 letter lobbying Facebook, the (((Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law))) said the site was ignoring “centuries of history, legal precedent, and expert scholarship that all establish that white nationalism and white separatism are white supremacy.” To these people, there is no way White people could ever justify having their own nations. Even though it has been the way Whites have lived for thousands of years, it is unacceptable for them to break away from the system which uses their labor to subsidize the Third World invasion of the West.

In an audacious display of arrogance, Facebook will also direct people who post pro-White content to Life After Hate, an anti-White group which is designed to target and demoralize Whites into giving up on advocating for their people. So, not only are they going to ban you, they are going to laugh in your face and direct you to a reeducation camp. By far the most disturbing line from the letter is this one:

“Going forward, while people will still be able to demonstrate pride in their ethnic heritage, we will not tolerate praise or support for white nationalism and white separatism.”

This is nothing other than the complete dehumanization of Whites. People will be allowed to have ethnic pride, but not Whites. How can we come to any other conclusion than that Whites are not being considered as people in this calculation? While the human beings are allowed to say what they please, Whites will have to watch out for the ban. Our overlords have spoken. - Jay Lorenz reports

Possible Terror Attack Made @ Endchan, Reported To Admin

Someone claimed they were going to go on a shooting spree against random cops in Washington. Original screenshot placed within the OP.

I reported this to the Administration on Endchan. I commented in the thread as well, telling this anon to reconsider.

Look out for updates if anything unfolds.

kikes acting as a 5th column among whites is backfiring on them

Jewish SPLC Exposed for Racism, Sexism and Running Shekel-Making Scam

"The Jew-run Southern Poverty Law Center widely known as a Jewish terrorist organization and anti-White hate group is in a great deal of trouble. They had to fire the token goy co-founder Morris Dees for sexually harassing young female staffers. They’ve also been accused of failing to promote niggers into upper management roles. The fact that a Jew-dominated group whose focus is on fighting racism, sexism etc.. was guilty of doing these things is not surprising."

"This blurb from the Daily Mail falsely states that the top of the organization was filled with Whites. But really, it has been widely dominated by Jews from kikes like Richard Cohen, Mark Potok and others. Hilariously, the SPLC has hired the same gook woman who helped get Jussie Smollett off of his MAGA attack hoax to do a review of the organization."

"A former SPLC staffer has also penned an extensive article for The New Yorker accusing the organization of being nothing but a Jewish shekel-generating scam. The staffer noted how Dees was basically a White front man who would help dupe gullible White northerners into opening up their wallets to fight racism. It also noted how it was an inside joke among staffers that the whole purpose of the organization was to bring in money even though it fundamentally wasn’t doing much to fight “hate.”

"This is going to cause tremendous problems for the organization. They may even have to scale back their operations as it is likely that fewer donations will be rolling in. Of course, they’ll probably just replace Cohen who is leaving the SPLC in wake of this scandal with some other kike and find some other wealthy kike to prop it up. But maybe if we are lucky, the organization will collapse in on itself and fold. Overall though, this whole situation is creating a big public relations problem for them. Morale among the rank and file can’t be very high at the moment."

Brussels Halts 5G Pilot Over Cancerous Radiation Concerns

RELATED: >>>/endpol/1124

A pilot project to provide 5G wireless internet in Brussels, Belgium has been halted by officials over health concerns for its citizens, according to the Brussels Times: https://archive.fo/0L0Qx

In July, the government concluded an agreement with three telecom operators to relax the strict radiation standards in Brussels. But according to the Region, it is now impossible to estimate the radiation from the antennas required for the service.

"I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not," Environment minister Céline Fremault (CDH) told Bruzz. "The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt," she added.

Belgian officials found themselves at an impasse last week over an agreement on the auctioning of 5G licenses.

As Michael Snyder noted last month, 5G may be incredibly dangerous - as it's "ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity":

5G cell towers are more dangerous than other cell towers for two main reasons. First, compared to earlier versions, 5G is ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity. 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G use between 1 to 5 gigahertz frequency. 5G uses between 24 to 90 gigahertz frequency. Within the RF Radiation portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, the higher the frequency the more dangerous it is to living organisms.

"So basically the radiation that we will constantly be absorbing will be much, much, much more powerful than before, and the sources emitting the radiation will be much closer to us," writes Snyder.

And as Mac Slavo of SHTFplan.com notes, author and activist Arthur Robert Firstenberg recently launched an online petition calling for various world organizations, such as the such as the United Nations, World Health Organisation (WHO), and European Union to "urgently halt the development of 5G," as they are "harmful for humans."

Speaking with The Daily Star Online, Firstenberg said this 5G rollout is deadly.

“There is about to be as many as 20,000 satellites in the atmosphere. The FCC approved Elon Musk’s project for 12,000 satellites on November 15th and he’s going to launch his in mid-2019. I’m getting reports from various parts of the world that 5G antennas are being erected all over and people are already getting sick from what’s there now and the insect population is getting affected,” Firstenberg stated.

Meanwhile, as Brussels pulls back on 5G technology, Verizon on Wednesday announced that it has turned on its 5G radiation war network against two major cities; Chicago and Minneapolis - which will be compatible with the next generation of 5G-cancerous devices, according to CNBC.

Belt-And-Road Initiative In Full Swing In Europe

BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/IoKi1

The multipolar transformation that is occurring across the Eurasian continent confirms the industrial and diplomatic cooperation between China and the European continent in spite of strong opposition from the United States.

Xi Jinping's visit to Europe confirms what many of us have been writing about over the past few months and years, namely, the reality of an ongoing global transformation of a world dominated by the United States to a pluralistic one composed of different powers collectively shaping a multipolar world.

Europe therefore finds itself in fortuitous position, balanced as it is between its old world links to the United States on the one side and the fledgling Eurasian one being ushered in by Russia and China on the other.

Countries like Germany and France, but even the United Kingdom, have long implemented commercial policies that encourage integration between the countries of the Eurasian supercontinent. In 2015, the United Kingdom was among the first Western countries to join the Chinese Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), which finances projects of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

The Chinese BRI mega project kicked off in 2014 with the ambitious goal of integrating trade between China and Europe by sea and by land, in the process incorporating all the countries in between. The idea, as a natural consolidation of trade, is to shorten the delivery times of goods by rail and integrate sea routes. The project covers not only ports and rail lines but also the construction of technological infrastructure to achieve global interconnectivity using the 5G technology developed by the Chinese tech giant Huawei.

Germany and France have over the years deepened their partnerships with Beijing. Paris in particular boasts historical ties with China stemming from the nuclear cooperation between China General Nuclear Power Group (CGNPC) and Électricité de France (EDF) stretching back to 1978, as well as the aerospace one between Airbus and the Chinese aviation companies that has been ongoing since 1985.

Italy has in recent months approached the BRI as a result of the new government consisting of the Lega Nord and Five Star Movement (M5S). The decision to sign a memorandum of understanding between Beijing and Rome underlines how the new government wants to maintain a balanced position between Washington and Beijing in certain sectors. This is exactly the approach of Germany, which has elected to continue deepening its ties with Moscow vis-a-vis hydrocarbons and Nord Stream 2 in the face of pressure from Washington. Moreover, both Germany and Italy have confirmed that they want to rely on Huawei for the implementation and management of 5G traffic.

The decisions of Germany, France and Italy to continue their cooperation with Moscow and Beijing in various fields flies in the face of the narrative advanced by the American-controlled scaremongering media controlled that attempts to discourage European politicians from acting in the interests of their countries and engaging with Russia and China.

There are striking divergences between Europe’s politicians, especially if we look at the relations between Macron and Salvini in Italy, or those between May and her European colleagues. Even between Merkel and Macron there seem to be notable frictions surrounding energy independence.

John Bolton Cheers As Venezuelans Break Through Border Barricades, Flooding Into Colombia

After US coup attempts targeting the Nicolas Maduro government failed to produce the desired result over the past two months, it appears things are about to heat up again, as the White House grasps at any incident that could again take Venezuela into international spotlight, ramping up external pressures amid continued infrastructural collapse and mass power outages.

National security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday evening tweeted a video showing ongoing mayhem at a key border crossing with Colombia, where desperate Venezuelans have been attempting to break through Maduro forces imposed barriers: "The Venezuelan people have broken through Maduro’s barricades and have begun moving humanitarian aid from Colombia across the border. Another important victory for Interim President Juan Guaido," Bolton stated.

The Venezuelan people have broken through Maduro’s barricades and have begun moving humanitarian aid from Colombia across the border. Another important victory for Interim President Juan Guaido. https://t.co/0qXYj8jHIr

— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) April 2, 2019

Bolton called attention to the footage described as showing "the moment Venezuelans broke down the barriers on the Simon Bolivar bridge to cross back into Venezuela with supplies."

It appears the White House plans to put continued focus on border clashes following the late February failed attempt of US-backed "interim president" Juan Guaido personally leading humanitarian aid caravans from Colombia into Venezuela, in order to undermine and ultimately overthrow Maduro.

A breaking Reuters report described the incident to which Bolton referred as involving thousands of people rushing the border, which was blocked by large container truck barricades:

Thousands of Venezuelans broke through barricades along the international border with Colombia on Tuesday, according to the migration office in Bogota, which warned Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro that he would be held responsible for any problems that may occur.

Maduro in February blocked bridges joining the two nations in a bid to prevent a U.S.-backed effort to distribute hundreds of tons of humanitarian aid to the crisis-wracked nation.

With bridges blocked by containers and trucks, Venezuelans have been wading through the Tachira River to reach the city of Cucuta, on Colombia’s northern border, to find food, medicines and work. But torrential rains in recent days has made that impossible.

Good! Gun Supply Retailers Begin FLOODING Commiefornia With 30-round Magazines And Patriots Are Buying 'Em Up!

In the aftermath of a recent federal court ruling striking down as unconstitutional a California law limiting gun magazines to 10 rounds, firearms owners throughout the state have flooded suppliers with purchases.

Following the ruling, many online gun suppliers began selling magazines of all sizes to gun owners in California. One of them, Rainier Arms, has seen purchases of its Magpul Gen2 30-round AR-15-style magazines soar to the point that the sales/payment processing server went down for a time, Ammoland reported.

“We received such an overwhelming surge of sales over the weekend, it actually crashed our merchant services, the website was fine, but our payment services were so overwhelmed it crashed,” said Aristotle Bartolome of Rainier Arms, the gun news site reported.

“With that said, we closed out a very strong weekend, and even with the chaos, we’re currently 48 hours behind on getting all of the weekend orders caught up and adjusting staffing to better support our customers getting their orders quicker.”

Another retailer, Brownells, also reports they are selling magazines like crazy to California buyers. More to the point, the company says that buyers in the Golden State appear to be “stocking up” on AR-15 magazines especially (Brownells is one of the biggest firearms and gun suppliers online).

California residents are in a rush to buy up magazines before the state can appeal U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez’s decision to the Ninth Circuit Court. The judge’s decision stunned the California Attorney General and the gun community as well. It went further than either side anticipated.

“In a national and local environment that is increasingly hostile to responsible gun owners, it’s important to take advantage of opportunities that present,” Golden said. “With the overturn of unconstitutional limits on magazine sizes, I, as a California resident, can finally have standard size magazines that can make a small difference at the range and a huge difference if I’m ever forced to defend myself or my home.”

And that’s a great point, by the way — the ability to defend oneself and their home.

Adam Schiff, Who Lied About Trump-Russia Collusion, Now Pushing For Internet Censorship

Alternatives To State-run Social Media: https://archive.fo/53IjY

Leftist clown Adam Schiff of Commiefornia, whom President Donald Trump has hilariously branded as “Pencil-Neck Adam Schiff” because of his infamous and ongoing conspiracy-mongering over the fully-debunked “Russian collusion” hoax, has decided to dig his own grave even deeper by also trying his hand at online censorship.

In case you missed it, Schiff recently wrote a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos asking him to remove all products and content from the company’s global platforms that in any way “discourage[s] parents from vaccinating their children,” calling freedom of vaccine speech “a direct threat to public health … reversing progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable diseases.”

Schiff noted in his letter to Bezos that Amazon is “in a unique position to shape consumption” – meaning it has the power to control the narrative and steer its customers towards a more politically-correct mindset about vaccines, which is what Schiff wants. And as we recently reported, Bezos has decided to comply.

A number of science books, documentary films – including the highly-acclaimed Vaxxed – and other similar-type content have already been scrubbed from Amazon Prime, as Bezos, Schiff and the rest of their techno-fascist ilk are now openly engaging in a massive online “book burning.”

Even though Schiff isn’t a doctor and knows nothing about immunology or the science behind vaccine safety and efficacy, he’s decided to lead the charge in pushing the fake news narrative that all vaccines are 100 percent safe and effective – and that any online materials suggesting otherwise need to be banned.

Amazon isn’t the only tech company in Schiff’s crosshairs, it’s important to note. The Russian collusion hoaxster also sent similar letters both to Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, encouraging them to remove all content that “discourages parents from vaccinating their children.”

Schiff is so completely unhinged and detached from reality at this point that many are now calling for his immediate resignation from Congress, highlighting the fact that he’s been “completely compromised” by what can only be described as deranged lunacy.

If anything, Schiff is the one who’s got a major collusion problem, not only with far-Left Democrats trying to perform a coup against our Commander-in-Chief, but also with Big Pharma, from which he’s clearly on the financial dole.
