Bill Nye the Constitutional B.S. Guy

Debate continues to rage about whether Bill Nye is really a “science guy,” or if he’s just an entertainer pushing a political agenda, but one thing is certain: Bill Nye is not the “Constitution guy.”

In an interview on CNN during the so-called “March for Science,” Nye made the case for federal funding of science by quoting one-half of a constitutional clause.

“If you suppress science, if you pretend climate change isn’t a real problem, you will fall behind other countries that do invest in science, that do invest in basic research. And it’s interesting to note, I think, that Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution refers to the progress of science and the useful arts, and useful arts in 18th century usage would be what we would call engineering, or city planning or architecture.”

Nye isn’t wrong. A clause in Art. 1 Sec. 8 does refer to the progress of science and the useful arts. But it might be a good idea to put those words in their full and proper context.

Undercover at a Chinese iPhone factory: New York student who posed as a worker says job involved screwing approximately 1,800 screws into devices for 12 hours, six days a week

Twelve-hour days, six-day weeks, and all for $450 per month - these were the conditions faced by an NYU student as he went undercover in an iPhone factory.

Dejian Zeng, a second year masters student, spent six weeks living and working the Pegatron iPhone Factory, outside Shanghai, in order to see what life was like.

While he said some things were better than expected - as the factories are clean and air-conditioned - he revealed the hours were punishing and the bosses cruel.

Clean Water Is A Basic Human Right, And We Can And Should Make It Affordable To Everyone

Ask someone in Flint, Michigan, or São Paolo, Brazil — the list of cities rocked by water disasters seems to grow each day — how much safe clean water is worth. Worried about contamination and drought, it might be a pretty penny. But the ability of people to actually pay for the full cost of water — from protecting it at its source to getting it to flow from the tap — depends, as it does with anything for sale, on income. And yet water isn’t simply a commodity; it’s necessary for life, so the ethics and practicalities of how society pays for clean water quickly become tricky. The truth is that our growing income inequality means growing thirst and disease.

However these new findings show that while the stress of diagnosis and having cancer might be to blame, chemo treatment also has an impact.

North Korea now blames UN security council for rising war tensions on the peninsula

State media said joint military drills being held with South Korea have sparked fury in the nation.

It also claimed the US bringing its nuclear strategic assets to the region has been seines military aggression which should be met with strength, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

An unidentified ministry spokesman was quoted as saying by the KCNA: "In case a war breaks out on the peninsula, the US will be held wholly accountable for causing trouble after bringing lots of strategic assets and special warfare means.

"The UNSC that has toed the US line will never be able to evade its responsibility."

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai on Why He's Rejecting Net Neutrality Rules

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai announced plans today to roll back net neutrality rules put in place by the Obama administration in 2015.

The FCC currently regulates Internet service providers (ISPs) under Title II regulations that essentially treat the internet as a public utility similar to the old phone monopoly. Proponents of net neutrality and the invocation of Title II regulations say that such oversight is necessary to ensure that the Internet remains "open" and ISPs don't block sites or degrade offerings by rivals. Long a critic of Title II regulations, which were invoked after the FCC lost two court battles to regulate the Internet, Pai describes them as "a panoply of heavy-handed economic regulations that were developed in the Great Depression to handle Ma Bell."

UNVEILED: President Trump’s Tax Plan!

President Trump has just unveiled his tax plan, and so far it sounds good to me!

President Donald Trump unveiled his tax plan with the following points:

Proposal to slash corporate taxes,
Tweak personal tax rates,
Eliminate most deductions used by more affluent Americans,
The plan was announced by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn during a White House press briefing.

Mnuchin and Cohn said the plan would include “the biggest tax cut” in US history.

Mnuchin told THE HILL that the White House and congressional leaders wanted to pass the bill “as quickly as possible.”

It sounds quite good to me, and I hope I am reading it the right way….all the signs say “good for the American people.”

FTC Halts Massive Tech Support Scams

The Federal Trade Commission has launched a major international crackdown on tech support scams in which telemarketers masquerade as major computer companies, con consumers into believing that their computers are riddled with viruses, spyware and other malware, and then charge hundreds of dollars to remotely access and “fix” the consumers’ computers.

At the request of the FTC, a U.S. District Court Judge has ordered a halt to six alleged tech support scams pending further hearings, and has frozen their assets.

“The FTC has been aggressive – and successful – in its pursuit of tech support scams,” said FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz. “And the tech support scam artists we are talking about today have taken scareware to a whole other level of virtual mayhem.”

If you’re not using OPTICAL storage, all your data may be wiped out in a nuclear war, solar flare or EMP attack

The threat of an EMP attack from North Korea is “real and terrifying,” reports PJ Media. John Moore writes:

An EMP disaster from a high-altitude blast seems like science fiction: There is a silent flash high in the sky, and everything using electricity just … stops. Cars stop, power goes out, the Internet dies, satellites quit working, landline and mobile phone systems go out, and computers are destroyed. In a moment, we are back to 1850, as was dramatized in William Forstchen’s 2009 novel One Second After.

While more people are becoming aware of the risk of an EMP attack, what almost nobody seems to realize is that magnetic storage media is also subject to data loss from electromagnetic phenomena. This includes hard drives, RAID storage arrays, thumb drives and even SD cards.

French 'Proof' That Assad Used Sarin in Khan Sheikhoun Turns out to Be Complete BS

For over a week now France has claimed it has irrefutable evidence that Syrian military used gas against civilians earlier this month and would present it shortly.

It has now done so. It says it has determined that sarin used in the 2017 Khan Sheikhoun attack came from the same stock used in an earlier 2013 attack.

This is it. This is the extent of its super-duper evidence.

Because Paris "knows" the Syrian army used sarin in 2013, which Syria denies and was never proven, France now "knows" Syria also used sarin in 2017.

Anywhere else that would be called circular logic.
If anything, if samples from Khan Sheikhoun match sarin used in 2013 that makes it all the more likely that it came from rebel stock. The same stock they ultimately used to stage the East Ghouta false flag.

FCC head unveils plan to roll back net neutrality

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai revealed Wednesday his plans for rolling back net neutrality, one of the most controversial items up for consideration at the agency.

During a speech at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., Pai said he plans to hand regulatory jurisdiction of broadband providers back to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), an agency that critics argue is less prepared to handle them than Pai’s is.

Originally passed under Democrat Tom Wheeler’s chairmanship, the net neutrality rules — more formally referred to as the Open Internet Order of 2015 — set restrictions on internet service providers (ISPs) prioritizing certain kinds of web traffic and throttling others. The rules were broadly aimed at establishing a level playing field for companies on the internet.

Pai, notably, did not say “net neutrality,” once during his remarks, opting to refer to the principles as the “open Internet.”

M1978 Koksan: 170-mm self-propelled gun

36+ miles with a RAP!

The M1978 Koksan self-propelled gun was developed in North Korea. A key requirement for this artillery system was the capability of reaching Seoul from the north of the demilitarized zone. Designation of this vehicle was allocated by the US Department of Defense. It was first observed by US intelligence in 1978 in the city of Koksan, hence its designation. This artillery system was first publicly revealed in 1985. It is in service with the North Korean army, however the number employed in not publicly reported.

A number of these self-propelled guns were supplied to Iran. Some of these were captured by Iraq in the late 1980s during Iran-Iraq war.

Kim Jong-Un's army readied for war as they fired rockets and torpedoes at mock enemy warships during North Korea's 'largest ever' live-fire artillery drills on Tuesday.

Hundreds of tanks were lined up along the eastern coastal town of Wonsan in a show of military strength to celebrate 85 years since the North Korean army was created.

Kim saluted the military as he watched the exercises on Tuesday, which involved the firing of more than 300 large-calibre artillery pieces and included submarine torpedo-attacks.

Why Taxation is Slavery: Words From Frederick Douglass

What do you call it when someone takes 100% of your labor by force? Slavery.

Slavery is being forced to work against your will for the benefit of your master, your owner. The only reason they own the products of your labor is because they own you. If you had exclusive control over what is done to and with your body, the most basic right of self-ownership, you would not owe anybody your labor.

So then a lesser percentage of forced labor is also slavery, though to an obviously lesser degree.

Whether a cent or a million dollars is taken without consent, it is theft. And if someone forces you to work for them 1% of the time, or 100% of a time, that is still slavery.

Why We Have a Second Amendment: Venezuela Plans to Give Firearms to Loyalists So They Can Purge Growing Resistance

After enduring shortages of food and medicine for years, as well as a total collapse of their currency, the people of Venezuela have had enough. Last week it was estimated that 2.5 million people marched against the Maduro regime, which had previously tried to strip away the powers of the opposition-led parliament. It’s estimated that as many as 6 million people may have taken to the streets to protest throughout the country.

In the lead-up to the protest, which had been planned for weeks by opposition political parties, President Maduro issued an alarming proclamation that didn’t receive nearly enough press. He promised to expand the nation’s armed militia, and hand out firearms to as many as 400,000 loyalists.

The Federal Fiscal Condition: Kick the Can ’til You No Longer Can

04/26/2017 11:13 am

That is what happens when the government cannot meet its financial obligations. Two forms of default/bankruptcy are available: hard and soft. Hard means the government “stiffs” debt holders totally or partially—“sorry, we cannot repay any of your principal or interest” on your bonds and T-bills or “we can make only part payment.” The “soft” default method is for the Federal Reserve to run its printing and digital presses red hot, paying off debt with zillions in money with new zeroes, ultimately making the money worthless. Economic chaos and disaster ensue. Irresponsible? Hyperinflation? Yes. Would the Fed do it? Don’t ask me, ask the bailed-out masters of the universe on Wall Street what they want the Fed to do.

Korea Crisis - Trump's American Armada FacesDestruction In Remote Seas

Armada was an apt description by President Donald Trump for his naval campaign against North Korea, since the term originated with the royal fleet of the Spanish Empire that was set ablaze and blown to smithereens on the remote western fringe of Europe by bold sea captains Francis Drake and Walter Raleigh, those “Admiral’s Men” under the command of Charles Howard, the Earl of Nottingham.

Another great armada met a similar fate in the distant waters between the Korean Peninsula and Japan. The Battle of Tsushima pitted the Russian Tsar’s massive flotilla against the firepower of Japan’s fleet of nimble Scottish-built battleships, which swerved in S-formations to fire broadsides and then realigned in file to narrow their target profile. The “Togo turn” was named after Admiral Heihachiro Togo, who leaped from the status of an adopted son of a samurai dynasty (my own family of the Satsuma domain) to become the leading naval strategist of his era.

Not to mention the ignoble demise of the Spanish Armada!

Trump Talks Tough on North Korea

On Wednesday afternoon, Trump will hold a briefing for all 100 senators on North Korea. Reportedly a similar session is planned for House members – both meetings to be held in a “sensitive compartmented information facility” in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Secretary of Defense Mattis, Joint Chiefs Chairman Dunford, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates, and Secretary of State Tillerson will conduct the briefing.

On April 25, marking the anniversary of the founding of its army, North Korea held live-fire drills, involving hundreds of artillery pieces – instead of a sixth nuclear test some observers expected.

According to China Foundation for International and Strategic Studies Foreign Policy director Zhang Tuosheng, pressure from China, Washington, South Korea and Japan got Pyongyang to show restraint – whether short or longer-term remains to be seen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the US government and military will most probably not wait until the 9 May election to create some kind of false flag against North Korea, and we'll be off and running.

The fact that China has been sending some mixed messages on their potential range of responses to a US tactical strike against North Korea makes Mike and me more than a little nervous; Oahu is a critical military communications link to all of Asia, and would be a first-strike target in case China decides to go to war with the US over any such incident against North Korea.

Is “Mad Dog” Planning to Invade East Syria?

The Pentagon’s plan for seizing and occupying territory in east Syria is beginning to take shape. According to a Fox News exclusive: “The Islamic State has essentially moved its so-called capital in Syria… ISIS is now centered in Deir ez-Zur, roughly 90 miles southeast of Raqqa, the officials said.” (“ISIS moves its capital in Syria”, FOX News )

The move by ISIS corresponds to the secretive massing of US troops and military equipment on the Syria-Jordan border. It creates the perfect pretext for a ground invasion followed by a long-term military occupation in an area that Washington has sought to control for the last 18 months. Here’s more on the topic from South Front:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, but there is one reality the author of this article fails to mention; that is the (invited) Russian military presence in Syria.

And I think the question that Sec-Def Mattis must address is, how far will the Russians go to defend the Al-Assad government against this American invasion of sovereign Syria?!?

My thought would be, as far as it takes, even if it literally going to war with the US over Syria.

And this is a war which our American military may well lose; and I say that because at this point in its history, the American military doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

United Airlines just can’t catch a break: Giant rabbit mysteriously dies on board flight

The PR department at United Airlines just can’t catch a break. It’s now emerged a rabbit predicted to become the biggest in the world has died aboard a transatlantic UA flight.

Simon, a 10-month-old continental giant rabbit, was being transported in the cargo section of the Boeing 767 from London Heathrow to O’Hare International Airport in Chicago when disaster struck. United Airlines say they are investigating the incident.

“Simon had a vet’s check-up three hours before the flight and was fit as a fiddle,” breeder Annette Edwards told the Sun. “I’ve sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before.”

Measuring 3ft (90cm), Edwards had expected Simon, who had been sold to a famous buyer, to take the mantle of his 4ft 4in (1.32 meters) father Darius as the world’s biggest rabbit.

West Virginia Ends State-Run Obamacare Exchange

Rep. Joe Ellington (R-Princeton) sponsored House Bill 2119 (HB2119), The law simply repeals provisions in West Virginia law establishing a health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act. That would leave the federal government to administer the insurance exchange on its own...

Hackers uncork experimental Linux-targeting malware

Hackers have unleashed a new malware strain that targets Linux-based systems.

The Linux/Shishiga malware uses four different protocols (SSH, Telnet, HTTP and BitTorrent) and Lua scripts for modularity, according to an analysis of the nasty by security researchers at ESET.

Shishiga relies on the use of weak, default credentials in its attempts to plant itself on insecure systems through a bruteforcing attack, a common hacker tactic. A built-in password list allows the malware to try a variety of different passwords to see if any allow it in.

...

Eset advises that "to prevent your devices from being infected by Shishiga and similar worms, you should not use default Telnet and SSH credentials." ®

As the world ignores Yemen, war tears apart the ancient country's social fabric

More than 10,000 dead. Approximately 19 million people in desperate need of humanitarian aid, including 7.3 million on the brink of famine. The figures in Yemen’s two-year-old civil war are staggering – but they don’t convey the daily suffering of civilians.

“The numbers do not show the human aspect. Unlike Syria, where news about the devastation and death makes it to the media very quickly, Yemenis suffer in silence,” said Sherine El Taraboulsi-McCarthy, a research fellow at the Overseas Development Institute.

With the country’s airports as well as land and sea borders controlled by neighbouring Saudi Arabia, no Yemeni refugees are fleeing to Europe in their thousands. Without any perceptible impact on the West or overspill of violence, the conflict has remained largely invisible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But you have to understand; the complete, and total genocide of the Yemeni people is precisely the outcome wanted by Saudi Arabia and the US,; hence, you don't hear any mention of it from the US corporate presstitutes.

Under President Trump's watch, the US government has become more complicit in Saudi war crimes in Yemen by the day.

The Saudis are killing and maiming Yemeni children through their bombing attacks.

images: Yemeni children killed and maimed by Saudi bombing attacks

The Saudis are blocking Yemeni ports, insuring no food gets in, which is causing death by malnutrition for Yemeni children.

Images:
Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition from Saudi port blockades

The Saudis are using depleted uranium weapons on heavily populated areas in Yemen.

Images: Saudi troops using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen

And the result of the use of these weapons is precisely what happened when the US military used these weapons in Iraq; a massive spike in cancers, stillbirths, and birth defects in Yemen's children. (warning: very graphic images)

Severe birth defects in Yemeni children,
from exposure to DU in the womb

To poison a child in the womb is one of the most horrific examples of child abuse I can imagine; and yet, the Royal House of Saud; the Saudi Government; the US government and US military appear to be perfectly morally comfortable with this practice, understanding, fully, what the outcome will be for these kids and their families

And to the families of US service members about to be deployed to Yemen; your loved ones face precisely the same dangers as do the Yemeni people from DU exposure, and may well come down with cancers and other horrid health issues, not to mention that their children may well have the same birth defects as do the Yemeni children who have been poisoned in utero from their parents' exposure to this chemical weapon.

NETANYAHU SETS POLICY: WE WON’T MEET DIPLOMATS WHO MEET WITH BREAKING THE SILENCE

Israeli-German relations took a turn for the worse on Tuesday, the day after Holocaust Remembrance Day, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled a meeting with visiting German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel because he insisted on meeting with far-Left NGO Breaking the Silence.

“Our relations with Germany are strong and they are important and they will continue,” Netanyahu said, explaining his decision to cancel the meeting with a senior representative of one of Israel’s most important friends in Europe.

My policy is clear: not to meet with diplomats who visit Israel and meet with organizations that defame IDF soldiers and try to prosecute our soldiers as war criminals, which diplomats would never consider doing in the United States, Britain or anywhere else,” he said. “Our soldiers are the basis of our existence. They are guarding us, and we will protect them.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu is acting scared, because he understands that Breaking the Silence is a powerful witness to the brutal excesses of the IDF, including cold-blooded murder, against the Palestinians. Here's their website:

Breaking the Silence. Org

And German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, a word, please; whatever foreign aid your country is providing to Israel, I would suggest that it stops and immediately. People who tell the truth about their experience in the IDF should not be marginalised.

Trump’s Aggressions In Syria Will Have Long-Term Consequences

As I have noted in response to the latest U.S. government aggressions in the Middle East, Donald Trump’s short-sighted military actions in Syria are not based on rational thought but on emotionalism, his feeling terrible about the children and other innocent victims of the chemical attack in Syria this week. But this is purely selective emotionalism, given that he doesn’t seem so concerned about all the innocent victims of his own drone bombings that he has been authorizing since he was sworn in as President.

Trump is also not concerned for the probable long-term results of his warmongering now. History indicates that the situation will only get worse from here, as we have seen with Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is most troubling to me, in Syria, is that it appears to be just a matter of time before Russia sends ground troops here, and Russia signalled its readiness to do so just yesterday:

Russia Ready To Send Ground Troops To Syria: FARS

US ground troops in combat with Russian ground troops in Syria?!?

Will the Next War Erupt in the Balkans?

As the world focuses on the Middle Eastern and Korean flashpoints, the next war may not occur in either region, but rather in a replay of an old conflict that has been largely forgotten.

In an interview with Politico’s European edition, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama threatened war if Kosovo is denied entry into the European Union:

“Albania’s prime minister said a union between Albania and Kosovo cannot be ruled out if EU membership prospects for the Western Balkans fade.

“In an interview with Politico … Prime Minister Edi Rama said Europe would face ‘a nightmare’ if the Balkans ‘go crazy’ because EU accession is off the agenda, with the region becoming a ‘gray zone in which other actors have more influence than the European Union.’”

It looks like this is about to get very ugly, and very quickly.

Artillery shells are stored in an elaborate network of tunnels; and though much of the weaponry and ammunition is old, U.S. forces stationed in South Korea have no doubt they would be effective.

Turkey Cannot Fight PKK at Expense of Counter-Daesh Fight - US State Dept.

Turkey cannot fight the Kurdistan People’s Party (PKK) at the expense of the regional fight to defeat the Islamic State, also known as Daesh (banned in Russia), acting US Department of State spokesperson Mark Toner said in a briefing on Tuesday.

"We’re also cognizant of the threat that the PKK poses to Turkey but again the point we made to Turkey and I’m making now is that Turkey cannot pursue that fight at the expense of our common fight against the terrorists that threaten us all," Toner told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the PKK were legitimised in Turkey, and given the opportunity for true representation, this would not be an issue; unfortunately, the Kurds have been persecuted and marginalised in every possible way, and Turkey is paying the price for it.

Marissa Mayer to leave Yahoo with a $186 million payout

Regardless of how business pundits will eventually judge Marissa Mayer’s tenure as CEO of Yahoo, she’s succeeded on at least one front: reaping rich personal rewards.

Mayer will leave Yahoo following its sale to Verizon with more than $186 million in payouts, with the bulk of the compensation tied to her Yahoo stock, stock options and restricted stock options, according to calculations by the Wall Street Journal. Included in the figure is her golden parachute payout of $23 million, which largely consists of restricted stock. Since joining the Internet pioneer in 2012, she’s earned far more than $200 million.
