"If the New World Order agenda is not realized by the terrorist attacks on America and if American's don't agree to give up their weapons and relinquish their sovereignty to the New World Order, the next attack will be the use of chemical, biological and/or atomic warfare against the American people. The architects of the New World Order will not hesitate to use as a last resort an atomic or hydrogen bomb in a major American city." -- Reference Op Ed page of the New York Times 9/24/01

That Mass Extinction Study is a Collectivist Hoax

In this video, Vin Armani discusses a recent study claiming that another mass extinction is upon us. The study was done by professor Paul Ehrlich, a perennially wrong environmental doom peddler, who wrote the widely debunked Population Bomb. As his previous work, the latest study is also easily debunked.

Firefox doesn't need to be No 1 – and that's OK, 'cos it's falling off a cliff

Just in case you didn't believe Firefox was on a trajectory that should have it crash and burn into extinction in the next couple of years, former chief technology officer Andreas Gal has usage stats that confirm it. To use Gal's words: "Firefox market share is falling off a cliff." The same could be said of Firefox itself.

What's most interesting about this data and Gal's interpretation of it is that at the same time that Firefox is sliding into irrelevancy it's becoming a better browser. It's faster than it's ever been and uses less memory – less than its replacement, Chrome. Of course, as the ancient Betamax vs VHS format wars demonstrated, having a superior product does not translate to market share.

The big question is why?

Mozilla Firefox's Fx55 and Fx56 Versions Can Reduce Memory Usage 75 Per Cent

Dietrich Ayala, developer relationist at Mozilla, could comfortably be called a power user of Firefox, which comes with the job really. “Right now, more effort is being put into making Firefox faster than I've seen since... well, since I've been working on Firefox. And I've been at Mozilla for more than a decade.” He’s got a Firefox profile that means 1691 tabs are opened when the starts up Firefox. That’s slightly more than your average user, and as recently as the Fx51 version of Firefox, his start-up time was close to eight minutes. As of Fx56, Ayala can now start up Firefox with 1691 tabs in just 15 seconds.

As for total memory usage with 1691 tabs open, Ayala has found it consistently hovering around the 2GB mark for the last few versions of Firefox. As of Fx56, it’s now sitting at just under half a gigabyte.

Sweden Leaks the Personal Information of Millions of Its Own Citizens

A series of reports by Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter began to bring more information to the public in mid-July, and Pirate Party founder/privacy advocate Rick Falkvinge has been distributing the information for the English-speaking world.

From what we understand, the agency proceeded to upload all of its data to IBM and NCR’s cloud servers, where it was accessible by people outside of Sweden who didn’t have proper security clearance.

This information included all the details you’d find on a vehicle registry: the names, photos, and home addresses of millions of Swedish citizens. That’s enough of a problem in and of itself. But this info was publicly available by request. What wasn’t publicly available was the personal information on members of the military, secretive special forces, suspects wanted by police, citizens in witness protection, complete information about the model and condition of all military vehicles, and technical specs on roads and bridges.

Six billion records hacked so far this year: researchers

A surge in computer hacking has led to the breach of more than six billion records so far this year, topping the total for 2016, security researchers said Tuesday.

Amazon jacked up Prime Day prices, misleading consumers, says vendor

A Charlotte-based startup says e-commerce king Amazon (AMZN) jacked up their suggested retail price during the company’s annual discount event—Prime Day—to deceive consumers into thinking that they were getting a deal, when in reality, they weren’t.

Jason Jacobs, founder of Remodeez, a small company that specializes in non-toxic foot deodorizers and other odor stoppers, says he had an agreement with Amazon since 2015 on a suggested retail price of $9.99 for his products and was shocked after the tech giant almost doubled that on Prime Day to make it look like people were getting a discount, when they were actually paying full price.

9-minute video: What can’t people see .01% staged propaganda, including puppet US Presidents from Left and Right hands of one rogue state imperial body?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Truthstream Media’s sharp 9-minute analysis:

The most accurate political label to describe the US is rogue state empire; not limited government as a constitutional republic. This history is hidden with ongoing corporate media disinformation (and here), and “Disneyfied” history taught in public education.

Among dramatic rogue state policies:

Orwellian-illegal and lie-started Wars of Aggression,
Annual killing of millions, and harm to billions of humans,
Bankster looting in the annual trillions,
Assassinations of political enemies, including President Kennedy and Martin King.
I could go on, and do upon exploration of the above links documenting all factual claims as objective and independently verifiable for anyone caring to look.

Demanding arrests as the required and obvious public response

The categories of crime include:

The Jewish espionage network NILI played a vital role in the formation of the Balfour Declaration that helped pave the way for the establishment of Israel, according to a new study written by former Mossad head Efraim Halevy.

The Balfour Declaration, dated November 2, 1917, was sent by then-British foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Lionel Walter Rothschild. It expressed Britain’s support for the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people in Israel.

Exclusive — Back on Offense: Conservatives Plan to Press for Official Congressional Investigation into James Comey, Loretta Lynch

Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Mike Johnson (R-LA) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) have drafted an amendment that would compel government cooperation with a congressional probe into Lynch’s and Comey’s activities.

Specifically, the amendment—a draft of which was obtained by Breitbart News—would compel the production of documents and evidence regarding Lynch’s order to Comey to “mislead the American people by starting he should refer to the investigation into the mishandling of classified data and use of an unauthorized email server by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a ‘matter,’ rather than a criminal ‘investigation.’”

The amendment specifically presses the Department of Justice to cooperate with the congressional investigation this would create, making it easier for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to probe these and the other matters laid out.

WaPo Worships Principled, Humanitarian McCain That’s Never Existed

In a fawning editorial Saturday (7/22/17), pillar of the national security establishment Washington Post fell over itself to commend a John McCain that never existed, instead lavishing praise on a well-curated PR facsimile developed over decades.

After praising McCain for issuing a “toughly worded criticism” on Twitter of Donald Trump for allegedly ending an entirely pointless, destructive and likely illegal CIA program supporting unnamed “rebels” in Syria (the highest act of moral courage for the Post is gunrunning to CIA proxies), the Fred Hiatt–run editorial board proceeds to paint McCain as the antidote to the problem of “partisan warfare, where politicians will say just about anything at all, true or untrue, to gain an advantage.”

Uruguay Tells US Drug War to Take a Hike

Uruguay has fashioned a marijuana legalization program that is smart and graceful, yet does not turn the little South American nation into a tourist Mecca like Amsterdam. Legalization only applies to citizens. It may be the best decriminalization model yet. In the annals of beleaguered US Attorney General Jeff Sessions — whose obsession with weed I wrote about earlier — this amounts to another warning shot from the real world making it clear re-invigorating federal anti-marijuana law enforcement is not workable — unless the plan is to assume an all-out police state mode. Everybody knows the bloodhounds are baying in the woods and getting closer on the scent of Sessions’ Russia problem. In a front-page interview with The New York Times, President Trump makes it clear he’s fed up with Sessions for recusing himself on the Russia investigation. Jeff Sessions may be approaching pariah status in Washington DC.

Battle Lines Are Being Drawn In Venezuela As The Socialist Nation Inches Toward Civil War - Mac Slavo

You may recall this bizarre incident that occurred last month in Venezuela. A rogue police officer by the name of Oscar Perez, who is also well known in Venezuela for starring in several B-rated action movies, commandeered a helicopter, before dropping grenades on the nation’s Supreme Court building and strafing the Interior Ministry with gunfire. It was without a doubt, the strangest moment to come out of that nation’s ongoing civil unrest.

But this brazen attack isn’t just odd. In fact, it may portend something much more serious that is simmering under the surface of Venezuela’s slow motion social collapse. It’s a sign that Venezuela is very close to erupting into a full-blown civil war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has got to be a particularly terrifying situation for Venezuelan families with kids, who can barely feed them at this point.

More than 60 Islamic leaders and imams -- from France, Belgium, Britain, Tunisia, and of different Islamic faiths -- in a move that may be unprecedented, are touring Europe to denounce Islamic terrorism and to pay homage to the victims of terror in Europe by visiting many of the sites of terror attacks.
The idea seems to have shaken extremists to the core. They have been sending these imams death threats.
It is therefore high time, as mankind faces a crucial turning point, that people will pull together and support any voices of peace such as those of the marching imams, and restrain any hands that would try to sabotage their noble mission.

"Shrinkflation" - How Food Companies Implement Massive Price Hikes Without You Ever Noticing

Do you ever get the sense that your favorite steak at that Quick Service Restaurant of your choice keeps getting thinner and thinner all while your check size at the end of the night continues getting larger and larger. Well, it is. How else are publicly traded chains going to continue to deliver margin growth to wall street in the midst of rising labor costs, rising commodity costs and shrinking customer traffic?

As a new study in the U.K. just revealed, shrinking portion sizes among food manufacturers is actually way more common than you might think and you probably never even noticed it. In fact, according to data from the Office for National Statistics, over 2,500 consumer products in the U.K. shrunk in size over the past five years despite being sold for the same price.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have noticed it very much at the local markets we patronise; portions are way smaller, but sold for a lot more money than they used to cost!!!

I don't know how families are making it, in terms of buying healthy foods for their kids, with the phenomenal upticks Mike and I have seen with food prices here.

"Time Is Running Out" - China Is Planning For A Crisis Along North Korean Border

Despite Chinese officials reassurance that "military means shouldn’t be an option," WSJ reports that China has been bolstering defenses along its 880-mile frontier with North Korea and realigning forces in surrounding regions to prepare for a potential crisis across their border, including the possibility of a U.S. military strike.

While all eyes in America are once again distracted by "Russia"-related narratives and the dismal GOP efforts to replace, repeal, re-who-knows-what Obamacare, the threat of North Korea has not gone away... and neither has China's preparations. As President Trump stepped up the rhetoric, pressuring China to do more to 'solve' the North Korean problem, and threatening military action to halt Kim's nuclear weapons program ambitions, it is clear that China has used this crisis to not just prepare for potential problems with North Korea but to reinforce military forces elsewhere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder what President Trump's and DC's reaction is going to be to the next North Korean ICBM launch; I frankly don't think their collective reaction will be "Sit down, let's talk".

I am very concerned that their response will ultimately be military; look for some major battle carriers to be heading toward the North Korean peninsula in the not too distant future.

Rexit? Tillerson Reportedly Considering Early Exit Amid Trump Administration Chaos

Perpetual chaos within the Trump administration is apparently starting to take it's toll on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, at least according to some anonymous sources, and has prompted rumors that he may depart his post before the end of the year. According to various media outlets, Tillerson has grown frustrated with his lack of autonomy, constant internal policy contradictions and public disputes between the White House and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, among other things. Per Reuters:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has told friends he will be lucky to last a year in his job, according to a friend, while two officials said national security adviser H.R. McMaster was frustrated by what he sees as disorganization and indiscipline on key policy issues inside the White House.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The Elites Are Privately Warning About A Crash

Many everyday citizens assume powerful global financial elites operate behind closed doors in secret conclaves, like the scene of a Spectre board meeting in the recent James Bond film.

Actually, the opposite is true. Most of what the power elite does is hidden in plain sight in speeches, seminars, webcasts and technical papers. These are readily available from institutional websites and media channels.

It’s true that private meetings occur on the sidelines of Davos, the IMF annual meeting and G-20 summits of the kind just concluded. But the results of even those secret meetings are typically announced or leaked or can be reasonably inferred based on subsequent policy coordination.

What the elites rely on is not secrecy but lack of proficiency by the media.

6.20 pm: North Korea warns Donald Trump of 'powerful nuclear hammer'

Pyongyang is ram pig up its threats in a bid to dissuade the US from attempting to remove Kim Jong-un from power.

A foreign ministry spokesman, quoted in the state-controlled Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), said: “Should the US dare to show even the slightest sign of attempt to remove our supreme leadership, we will strike a merciless blow at the heart of the US with our powerful nuclear hammer, honed and hardened over time.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The ONLY thing which will work here will be getting all parties to the negotiating table (China, the US, North, South Koreas, and Japan) and to hammer out a peace deal, supplanting the existing armistice, which guarantees North Korea the right to unrestricted, unsanctioned trade, in exchange for North Korea ending its nuclear weapons program.

Of course, THAT... would be logical.

And we already had that statement a couple of days ago from General Dunford, attempting to "groom" the American people for a potential war against North Korea:

A North Korean Military Option is Not Unimaginable

Unfortunately, just because something would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing for the American government and military could do, is utterly no guarantee that they won't do it.

I would hope that President Trump's response, should there be another North Korean missile test soon, will be measured; my gut is telling me, however, that the warmongers among his closest advisors will not let that happen.

MEXICAN DRUG WAR: 2,234 MURDERS IN JUNE, THE COUNTRY'S DEADLIEST MONTH IN AT LEAST 20 YEARS

Drug war bloodshed in Mexico has spiked to record levels, with more homicides recorded in June than in any month in at least two decades.

Prosecutors opened 2,234 homicide investigations last month, according to government statistics released Friday. That’s an increase of 40% over June of last year and 80% over June of 2015.

Rising demand for heroin in the United States and a bloody power struggle inside one of Mexico’s most powerful drug cartels have put the country on track to record more killings in 2017 than in any year since the government began releasing crime data in 1997.

The 12,155 homicide cases opened from January to June make 2017 the deadliest first half of a year.

Though violence used to be concentrated in a handful of states, it is now rising nationwide, with 27 of Mexico’s 32 states recording an uptick in homicides compared with last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is what happens when you have a narcocracy running the country, meaning that the drug corruption functions at the highest levels of government, and any attempt to squelch its tentacles can mean instant assassinations of both investigative reporters, or ordinary citizens, fed up with that corruption.

We certainly had that here, during the Clinton reign. After all, why in the world would Hillary Clinton allow herself to be photographed with convicted drug felon Jorge Cabreras at a Christmas party, unless they themselves were right at the very center of illegal drug trafficking here in the US?!?

"We Are Tired Of Being Killed" Venezuelan Opposition Vows Violent Response To Maduro Power Grab

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has made it clear: Nothing short of the invasion threatened by President Donald Trump will stop him from holding a vote on a new constituent assembly that will officially replace the country’s legislature and likely allow the embattled president to rewrite the country’s Constitution, cementing his grip on power.

According to Bloomberg, Maduro has said the vote will be held next week in defiance of threats of US sanctions, and calls by his opponents for a two-day general strike. If approved, the new assembly will replace the country’s previous opposition-controlled assembly, which was annulled by the Maduro-controlled Supreme Court in March.

Once approved, it’s widely believed that Maduro will stock the assembly with political allies who will enable the re-drafting of the country’s constitution, allowing Maduro to consolidate power and officially marginalize anyone who opposes his regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Venezuelan economy collapses, there is utterly nothing Maduro can do, except gather what personal funds and belongings he has, and run like hell out of the country.

The Venezuelan people know their history; they understand how a true democracy works; and ultimately will do their best to bring democracy back to Venezuela.

I seriously doubt that the Venezuelan people see a future where Maduro is still the President.

Israel removing metal detectors at Jerusalem holy site following days of violence and protest

Israel’s security cabinet has decided to remove metal detectors from the entrance to a holy site in Jerusalem following days of violent clashes.

They are to be replaced by “smart cameras” to monitor worshipers at the al-Aqsa Mosque, which sits on the site known as Temple Mount by Jews and the Haram al-Sharif by Muslims.

The decision was announced at the end of a meeting of Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet lasting several hours, following a previous round of discussions on Sunday.

A spokesperson said “sophisticated technology” will be used instead of the metal detectors, following local reports that high resolution cameras capable of detecting hidden objects would be the alternative.

Muslims should support their brothers in faith suffering from Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, Erdogan told members of the ruling AK Party on Tuesday.

“From here I call upon all Muslims. Those who are able to should visit Al-Aqsa… Those who cannot visit Al-Aqsa should send aid to our brothers there,” Erdogan said in Ankara, as cited by the state-run Anadolu news agency.

Red Cross: Yemen Cholera Deaths Expected to Double by Year’s End

The forecast for Yemen’s cholera epidemic looks grim, as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) warns that by the end of 2017 the number of cholera cases will double, reaching 600,000.

President of ICRC Peter Maurer called the massive outbreak "alarming and growing" on Sunday while on a five-day visit to the country. Zee News quoted him saying, "The great tragedy is that this cholera outbreak is a preventable man-made humanitarian catastrophe."

He explained that devastation of Yemen’s health system and infrastructure by the ongoing civil war is directly responsible for the health crisis. Maurer said, "I find this needless suffering absolutely infuriating. The world is sleep-walking into yet more tragedy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ICRC President Maurer, there is a correction to your perception of how this epidemic got started that you need to understand; it has been the indiscriminate Saudi bombing, enabled by the US military, which has destroyed Yemeni infrastructure; Yemeni ports have been blocked, courtesy of US military-enabled Saudi troops, so no food can get in, leading to malnutrition; and sir, there is, of course, the question of has this cholera epidemic been weaponised, courtesy of a joint Saudi-US scientific collaboration?!?

It gives me no joy, whatsoever, to be a citizen of a country whose government colludes in Saudi Arabian war crimes in Yemen, and yet to be utterly powerless to do anything about it, except to bear Christian witness, and expose, as best I can, what is going on here.

Believing that autonomous cars and drones will be managed centrally, using applications running in large datacenters, members of the team have formed a new laboratory, called the Platform Lab, to work on infrastructure for new "Big Control" applications.

China will protect border with India ‘at all costs’

How India border stand-off gives China a chance to burnish its global image

Foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said later in the day that Indian National Security Adviser Ajit Doval would be among the guests hosted by Beijing during a security officials meeting of the BRICS countries on Thursday and Friday, also involving Brazil, Russia and South Africa.

State Councillor Yang Jiechi, who along with Doval is the special representative on the border issues, will also attend.

Lu refused to confirm whether the border issue would be discussed at the meeting.

“China hopes to maintain the peace and stability of the China-India border area, but certainly will not make any compromise on issues of territorial sovereignty,” Reuters cited Lu as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sincerely hoping that a hot war will not develop between these two nuclear-armed countries, and that cooler heads will prevail, and some negotiated settlement can occur; but passions on both sides of the issue are running very high, and all it will take is one stupid mistake, or stupid miscalculation, to get a war going here.

Rep. Gutierrez: When Democrats Take Majority We're Going To "Eliminate" Trump

Rep. Gutierrez: When Democrats Take Majority We're Going To "Eliminate" Trump

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) ripped President Trump for his immigration policy in a sermon at Chicago's Lincoln United Methodist Church on Saturday. The Democratic Congressman said Trump is the "major criminal" and he will "eliminate" him as president when the Democrats win a majority in the House.

The Lincoln United Methodist Church is a sanctuary church and according to Gutierrez's website, he "spoke to a packed house about the need to defend DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and other forms of legal immigration status that are under attack from Republicans and Donald Trump."

Gutierrez said that while Trump is attempting to criminalize immigrants, the president is the "real criminal." The Congressman said illegal immigrants are not criminals and that history will determine who the true criminals are.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would certainly like to hope that, after this "impressive performance", Representative Gutierrez got a very long visit from the Secret Service, asking him precisely what he meant when he said he was going to "eliminate" President Trump.

By impeachment, for upholding immigration law?!?

And just how, please, with a national debt of over $20 trillion dollars that we know of, just how, pray tell, does the Representative imagine the US is going to absorb the real costs of illegal immigration?!?

As reported at heritage.org in 2013:

The Fiscal Costs of Unlawful Immigrants and Amnesty to the US Taxpayer

As reported in investors.com last year:

Sorry: but illegal aliens cost the US plenty

And finally, as reported last year at AMAC:

How much does illegal immigration cost you?!?

The attack-dog populists, championing illegal immigration, as does Representative Gutierrez, generally never have a plan for how to pay for it; yet, all legal citizens in this country pay the price of this economic burden, particularly those who have the good fortune to be employed.

Are there issues, like Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals which need to get sorted?!? Absolutely.

But to proclaim that all illegal immigration just has to be accepted and tolerated, in a country that is on the keening edge of financial collapse, is just completely stupid, and a complete betrayal of American values.

Feminism Co-opted

I am a retired history professor and historian of women, a socialist, and a radical feminist. I know what feminism is, and I know it’s being co-opted. What is feminism? How is it defined? Feminism is the belief in equality for women. But feminism is being used now for unrelated, or even opposite causes, like war, transgender bathrooms, anti-Russia hysteria and political opportunism.

Large crowds of women descended on Susan B. Anthony’s grave in Rochester, NY, on Election Day 2016. Anthony’s grave, in what I saw as a desecration, became completely covered with “I Voted” stickers. I was not surprised to see Mayor Lovely Warren (Democrat) and Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (Democrat) prominently present, nor was I astounded that all of the women interviewed were voting for Hillary Clinton (Democrat and not really a feminist). So therefore I was also not shocked to learn that the whole long queue—at one point taking two hours to get through—was organized by local Democrats.

Canada Claims Authority to Censor Your Internet Searches

The Canadian Supreme Court today ruled the country has the authority to demand Google censor and remove links to certain web pages or online content.

The idea that governments can force Google to deindex links to pages is unfortunately not new (see the European Union's "right to be forgotten"). What matters internationally in this case is the government is forcing Google to remove links from searches regardless of where the Internet user is. That is to say: Canada is demanding the authority to censor the internet outside of its physical borders and control what people who are not Canadian citizens can find online.

NSA Officials and Computer Expert: Forensic Evidence Proves DNC Emails Were LEAKED, Not Hacked

Preface by Washington's Blog: We asked top NSA whistleblower Bill Binney what he thought about a report claiming that the DNC emails were transferred too quickly to have been accessed by a hacker, and could only have been copied by a DNC leaker. This article is his response. Background here and here.

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)

SUBJECT: Was the “Russian Hack” an Inside Job?

Executive Summary

Forensic studies of “Russian hacking” into Democratic National Committee computers last year reveal that on July 5, 2016, data was leaked (not hacked) by a person with physical access to DNC computers, and then doctored to incriminate Russia.

After examining metadata from the “Guccifer 2.0” July 5, 2016 intrusion into the DNC server, independent cyber investigators have concluded that an insider copied DNC data onto an external storage device, and that “telltale signs” implicating Russia were then inserted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the alleged "Russian hacking" of last November's election never actually happened; it was simply a convenient lie, concocted at the top levels of the DNC, with which the Democrats tried to spin their appalling losses in 2016.

There's no "there" there.

Slaying in Minneapolis, A Horror Story of Law Enforcement

It plays out as a horror story of law enforcement. A distress call to the Minneapolis police about activity taking place behind the house on Washburn Avenue, possibly a sound of intercourse, distress, or both, taking place after 11 during the night of July 15. “Hi, I’m, I can hear someone out back and I, I’m not sure if she’s having sex or being raped.”[1]

The caller, Justine Damond, had been spooked by the commotion. She had called her fiancé in Las Vegas who had, in turn, insisted she call the police. When the officers arrived, an unsuspecting Damond approached the police vehicle, came up to the open window of the driver, Officer Matthew Harrity, and was shot by his partner, Officer Mohamed Noor.

BEX ALERT - Russia Might Be Arming The Taliban In Afghanistan, According To Videos Released By CNN

It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on with the weapons because identifying markings have been removed in most instances. However, many of the guns appear to be in the style of Russian weapons like the Kalashnikov sniper rifle. That said, other weaponry and accessories observed include the JGBG M7 scope, which is made in China. It’s possible that some of these guns are indeed modeled on the Kalashnikov but aren’t actually Russian in origin, or they are indeed genuine Russian manufacture but weren’t actually distributed by Moscow.

China Forces Muslim Minority to Install Spyware on Their Phones

Chinese authorities in the province of Xinjiang are forcing locals of the Uyghur Muslim minority to install an app on their phones that will allow the government to scan their device for "terrorist propaganda," local media reports.

In reality, the app creates MD5 hashes for the user's files and matches them against a database of known terrorist content.

The app also makes copies of the user's Weibo and WeChat databases and uploads it to a government server, along with the user's IMEI, IMSI, and WiFi login information.

Spyware app developed by local police

The app is called Jingwang (Citizen Safety) and was developed by police forces from Ürümqi, Xinjiang's capital. Authorities launched the app in April, and also included the ability to report suspicious activity to the police.

At the start of July, Xinjiang officials started sending WeChat messages in Uyghur and Chinese to locals, asking them to install the app or face detainment of up to 10 days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Chinese government has an incredible "gift" for adding insult to injury for its ethnic Uyghur in Xinjiang, and that will not cure the problems which have led to violence here.

Local, indigenous people need more access to education, meaningful jobs, and a chance at a way to become somewhat financially upwardly mobile. As reported in 2013:

Uighurs in China say that bias against them is growing

And, as reported in theeconomist.com, 2015:

In other parts of China, such as Hong Kong and Shanghai, where Mandarin is not the native tongue, learning the national language does indeed open doors. But in Xinjiang even many Uighurs who speak fluent Mandarin find it hard to get ahead, partly because of racial prejudice. Highly educated Uighurs tend to earn less than their Han equivalents, says Mr Hasmath. Attempts by the Chinese government to promote knowledge of Mandarin and Chinese culture in Xinjiang may generate more problems than they solve.

Roomba's Next Big Step Is Selling Maps of Your Home to the Highest Bidder

The Roomba is generally regarded as a cute little robot friend that no one but dogs would consider to be a potential menace. But for the last couple of years, the robovacs have been quietly mapping homes to maximize efficiency. Now, the device’s makers plan to sell that data to smart home device manufacturers, turning the friendly robot into a creeping, creepy little spy.

While it may seem like the information that a Roomba could gather is minimal, there’s a lot to be gleaned from the maps it’s constantly updating. It knows the floor plan of your home, the basic shape of everything on your floor, what areas require the most maintenance, and how often you require cleaning cycles, along with many other data points. And, according to Reuters, that data is the future of its business strategy:

“There’s an entire ecosystem of things and services that the smart home can deliver once you have a rich map of the home that the user has allowed to be shared,” said [iRobot CEO Colin] Angle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And apparently, there is no way, currently, to opt out of this.

I think consumers who want the convenience of the Roomba need to start petitioning the manufacturer of this appliance for an "opt -out" amendment regarding selling information about their home, to either their purchase agreement, or their warranty, to prevent this.

I am sure that this would come with a fee as well, but at least you have some assurance of your privacy when the Roomba is being used.

BANKS ARE SCHEMING TO DOMINATE A FUTURE CASHLESS SOCIETY

Visa recently announced its new Cashless Challenge program, which offers $10,000 to restaurants willing to transition into accepting only digital payments. As the largest credit card processor in the U.S., it’s no surprise Visa is spearheading this campaign.

Under the guise of increasing transparency and efficiency, they’ve partnered with governments around the world to help convert financial systems into cashless models, but their real incentive is the billions of dollars in extra transaction fees it would generate.

“We are declaring war on cash,” Visa spokesman Andy Gerlt proudly proclaimed after the program was announced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF business establishments will not accept my cash, I will no longer do business with them, period, end of discussion.

It is just that simple.

FEDS DEPLOY MASSIVE ‘PRE-CRIME’ DRAGNET ON MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

And the greatest danger of all is over the horizon. Once the government discovers a new technology to intrude on the lives of ordinary citizens, a pretext will no doubt be developed after the next terrorist incident or insider attack to use it in ever widening circles as new threats are allegedly discovered. When that happens, we can confidently expect Patriot Act III, with a provision allowing continuous surveillance of any and all possible suspects. And there is actually a precedent. Back in 2003, the Pentagon under George W. Bush was already tinkering with what if referred to as Total Information Awareness to examine predictive behavior, described at the time as the “biggest surveillance program in the history of the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

George Orwell was not just a brilliant author; he was also a prophet, and we are seeing his dystopian universe come to chilling fruition in the 21st century.

UK IS SENDING ITS POLICE TO TRAIN IN ISRAEL: HERE’S WHY IT SHOULD BOTHER YOU

According to the Independent, government sources say a British team is set to travel to Israel in the near future to learn Israeli counterterrorism enforcement strategies. The proposed move comes amid a spate of terrorist activity in the United Kingdom, as well as concerns about the British authorities’ response time and ability to counter terrorist attacks.

However, as the Independent notes:

“There are, of course, significant differences between political violence in the UK and Israel. The murders and maiming in the streets of Britain are in pursuit of a murderous Islamist jihad with a variety of justifications offered including retaliation for the war against Isis in Iraq and Syria. In Israel and the occupied territories it is justified as part of the struggle for Palestinian nationhood against Israel.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On Prime Minister May's watch, this training of British police officers by Israelis is not about "suppressing terrorism"; this is about suppressing any opinion which does not conform to that of the official government propaganda.

And this wanting to train British police by the Israelis, from the country which gave the world the Magna Carta?!?!?

Prime Minister May should be hanging her head in shame at this move; but of course, sociopaths don't feel shame!!

43 Senators Want to Make It a Federal Crime to Boycott Israeli Settlements

The state of Israel maintains a military occupation of territories that were assigned to Palestinians by international law. Palestinian residents of the occupied West Bank are subjected to the discriminatory rule of a foreign army, while their Israeli neighbors enjoy the full rights of citizenship — a situation that many former Israeli officials have likened to South African apartheid.

The United Nations has repeatedly held that Israel’s maintenance — and expansion — of settlements in the occupied West Bank constitutes a violation of international law. Nevertheless, the occupation persists, as it has for half a century. At present, there is no discernible, diplomatic path for bringing it to an end.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If these 43 Senators are so concerned with Israel, let's crate them up and ship them there!

70 TOP-PAID US HEALTH INDUSTRY CEOS RAKED IN $9.8B SINCE OBAMACARE PASSED

You know all those health industry lobbyists who say that the American healthcare industry will go broke if it has to take care of the health of Americans?

Every year since 2011 -- when ACA became law -- the CEOs of US health companies have averaged an 11% raise. Remember, that's 11 percent, every year.

Topping the list is John Martin who helmed Gilead Sciences to the tune of $863M since Obamacare's passage.

American health care is indeed dangerous and unstably expensive, and to fix that, America's health CEOs should be focusing on lower prices, eliminating unnecessary expenses, and coordinating care. Instead, America's health care industry is booming at the expense of American health, thanks to a focus on selling more drugs, performing more procedures and tests, raising prices and engaging in gimmicky stock-inflating tactics.

* Pharmaceutical and drug-related company CEOs made up 11 of the top 20 highest earners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, now you know: ACA was NEVER about the true health of Americans; it was all about Big Pharma and Big Healthcare raking in billions for their CEOS!!

The Failed MMR Vaccine Policies on College Campuses

By Michelle Goldstein

Most states have enacted laws requiring college students to obtain the MMR vaccine in order to attend their universities. This vaccine allegedly offers protection against the diseases measles, mumps and rubella. The effectiveness of Merck’s MMR vaccine against mumps has been questioned by many scientists.

Meanwhile, the past five years have witnessed skyrocketing increases of mumps outbreaks across college campuses, among those students vaccinated, providing further evidence of the MMR vaccine’s failure...

US Ramps Up Surveillance as North Korean Sub Continues ‘Unusual Activities’

The “unusual activities” of a North Korean submarine in the Sea of Japan last week has caused the US military to increase its surveillance to keep an eye on the 1,800-ton vessel.

Newsweek Seems to Fire Disgraced Writer Eichenwald After Humiliating Settlement

Ron Paul - Trump Should Veto Congress’ Foolish New Sanctions Bill

This week’s expected House vote to add more sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea is a prime example of how little thought goes into US foreign policy. Sanctions have become kind of an automatic action the US government takes when it simply doesn’t know what else to do.

No matter what the problem, no matter where on earth it occurs, the answer from Washington is always sanctions. Sanctions are supposed to force governments to change policies and do what Washington tells them or face the wrath of their people. So the goal of sanctions is to make life as miserable as possible for civilians so they will try to overthrow their governments. Foreign leaders and the elites do not suffer under sanctions. This policy would be immoral even if it did work, but it does not.

Gen. Sergei Rudskoy announced on Monday.

Rudskoy added that the Syrian army and its allies have freed 150km of the border with Iraq including the city of El-Bud and the T-2 gas distribution system from ISIS and now they are developing the offensive in the direction of the city of al-Bukamal.

Now there are a few private companies, think of Blackwater” on a cyber-level, which are also master’s of intrusion, hacking, identity theft, spoofing and 24/7 harassment of anyone who has been illegally and unconstitutionally watch-listed as a domestic threat. However NSA still has the budget, the tech-toys, the software and extra-judicial tactics which trump any of the subsequently mentioned private groups.

One of the companies which acts as a hired gun for the federal government (and thus has the luxury of operating without any oversight, is James Bimen and Associates, based in Fairfax, Virginia.

Sean Hannity: America faces a turning point as anti-Trump forces attempt coup

Here are the five dangers faced by President Trump, and indeed all Americans:

The alt-left, destroy-Trump, propaganda media that has been lying to America for 11 months nonstop. They push their Trump-Russia collusion theory, despite no evidence whatsoever.

The so-called deep state, entrenched liberal bureaucrats and Obama loyalists who selectively leak information to damage the president and anyone associated with him.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, which mission creep has transformed into an out-of-control, political witch hunt.

The cumulative effect of all this manufactured turmoil. It is putting President Trump's agenda in jeopardy, which ends up directly impacting all of us.

An all-out effort to override the will of the American people and change the results of a presidential election. This is now creating a national security crisis.

BEX ALERT - Iran will soon have ICBMs armed with nukes by way of North Korea. Team Trump must act now

Here’s a prediction by yours truly that you can take to the bank: In just a few years Iran will have intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs, that can attack targets all over the Middle East, Europe and the United States.

And it might all be thanks to the rogue state the Trump administration has labelled the biggest national security threat of our time: North Korea.

Oh, and to twist the knife in a little deeper, those missiles could be armed with nuclear weapons—once the Iran deal expires. That is, unless America puts a stop to this threat once and for all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, if you really feel that way about it ... here's your rifle, and here's your parachute. Watch your head climbing into the transport and we'll call North Korea and Iran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But we the people remember all the times the corporate media has lied us into wars.

We remember how Saddam didn't really have Nuclear weapons.

We remember that Iran wasn't actually building nuclear weapons.

We remember that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest in over 200 years while the US cannot seem to go for 6 months without bombing, invading, drone-striking, or regime-changing other nations that have done nothing to deserve such treatment.

We remember that there were no torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor.

We remember that the Lusitania was in fact smuggling weapons to Great Britain in violation of the United States claim of neutrality, thus making her a legitimate target of war.

We remember that Roosevelt goaded the Japanese into the attack on Pearl Harbor.

We also remember that for all the talk about Iraq's nuclear weapons, and Iran's nuclear weapons, and North Korea's nuclear weapons, and Disneyland's nuclear weapons, that in all of human history one and only one nation has actually used nuclear weapons of mass destruction against the civilians of another country, and the nation that committed that atrocity is the United States.

Cassini 'sniffs' the atmosphere of Saturn's atmosphere and rings for the first time as it prepares to crash into the planet's surface

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft is now 15 weeks into its ‘grand finale’ dives, dipping in and out of the narrow gap between Saturn and its rings – but, as it comes closer to the planet than ever before, Cassini is making ‘surprising’ observations that could incite more questions than answers.

According to NASA, the new observations have revealed that Saturn’s magnetic field has no detectable tilt, meaning the true length of a Saturn day remains a mystery.

In a brazen attempt at honesty, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D) of Hawaii went on Tucker Carlson tonight and declared the US was addicted to regime change and that we armed and funded Al Qaeda in Syria.

In late 2016, Gabbard introduced the 'Stop Funding Terrorist Act' to Congress -- but hardly anyone on the left or on the neocon right listened. Over the course of the past two years, we've seen Russia on the right side of history, aiding the only legitimate government in Syria -- which has provided the media with endless demonization campaigns depicting both Assad and Putin as monsters, who both gassed innocents and bombed out hospitals, whilst ignoring the horrors and the blind hatred of the people attempting to overthrow Assad.

A Senate committee proposal for the 2018 military budget would further boost Pentagon spending on troops and equipment, make the US presence in Eastern Europe a persistent feature, and supply lethal weapons to Ukraine, among other things.

US mulls sending arms to Kiev, doesn’t view move as 'provocative' – US special envoy to Ukraine

Washington is considering sending “defensive” weapons to Ukraine, US special representative Kurt Volker says. He insists the potential move, long desired by Kiev, would not be "provocative." It comes as Moscow warns against fueling Ukraine's civil war.

In an interview with the BBC on Tuesday, Volker, who was appointed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as the US special representative for Ukraine negotiations in July, said that US authorities are pondering whether to ship armaments to Kiev.

Britons on alert after migrant mob attack driver with a brick

In a new escalation of violence among migrants in the area desperate to get to Britain, a violent mob pounced on a trucker.

They hit him around the head with a brick and left him for dead before stealing his vehicle.

It is thought the gang seized an opportunity to try to smuggle dozens of illegals into the UK but their brazen attempt failed when the vehicle was stopped before reaching the port.

BBC trounces taxpayer while belittling independent journalism

I woke up this morning to Sam Bright's BBC hit piece on Donbass journalists who use crowdfunding to support their work. It was not unexpected, but it was worse than I expected. "Worse" in the sense that it was even more pathetic, biased and misleading than I expected. But there are some important lessons about propaganda, freedom of speech and of the press, and how "presstitutes" like Bright, King, and the BBC have become the absolute antithesis of what they pretend to be.

No deal! EU up in arms over US - Russia sanctions

Brussels is preparing to retaliate if Washington adopts new sanctions against Russia without taking EU interests into account, according to a memo obtained by the Financial Times.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has requested an urgent review of Brussels' options for retaliation in the event that European energy companies and other business were to be targeted by the new anti-Russian sanctions being proposed by the US Congress.

The new sanctions' targets do include restrictions in the energy sector, and specifically target the Nord Stream 2 project, a joint venture involving Russian energy giant Gazprom and energy companies from Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands and the UK to bring Russian natural gas to Western Europe via a pipeline in the Baltic Sea. The bill explicitly threatens to target European companies working with Russia on the project.

The Worst Ideological Enemy of the US is Now Europe

The vast majority of these European courts -- whether the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) or the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) -- in their attempt to be moral and just, have dismissed the sovereign laws of Italy as irrelevant, and trampled the rights of the Italian state and ordinary Italians to approve who enters their country.

In Europe, Amnesty International and the like are, it seems, a new source of law.

Those who gave the Statue of Liberty to America in 1886 "to commemorate the perseverance of freedom and democracy in the United States" are willingly trampling their own people's liberties today through courts of appointed, unelected, unaccountable ideologues. The danger is that, with the help of many doubtless well-intentioned, international NGOs, the EU will not stop at its shores.

The Real Jihadist Threat No One Is Watching

Most people can tell you who the potential jihadists are, especially the ones in Europe and the USA. You can point them out in a group: they are immigrants, or more often, the children of immigrants, who came from the Middle East or North Africa. They often converse among one another in Arabic. Many want to join the Islamic State and other terror groups in Syria, or have gone and since returned. They are mostly men, usually around age 20 or less, and have grown up feeling alienated from the societies in which they live.

Most of this is wrong.
