‘World Government’: A Former ‘Conspiracy’ Myth is Now Emerging from the Shadows

The “subtly” named “World Government Summit,” which started Feb. 12 and ran through Feb. 14 in Abu Dubai, United Arab Emirates, included a few Bilderberg Group and World Economic Forum (WEF) members, such as WEF founder Klaus Schwab and frequent Bilderberg attendee Christine Lagarde, longtime International Monetary Fund chief.

But with Arab officials comprising perhaps half of the attendees, the pedigree of this much-lesser-known annual summit differs significantly from the Bilderberg-WEF axis and its North American-European complexion. An overriding fixation on world rule, though, is the irreducible shared goal.

GAWKER MEDIA BANKRUPTCY NOWHERE NEAR DONE. IRS COMES AFTER GAWKER FOR EPIC POTENTIAL FRAUD

Expect a long battle. The Trump White House hates Gawker for the hundreds of attacks that Gawker ran against them. Prime Clerk staff say that this “..may be a record-breaking case”.
FOLLOW THE MONEY is the phrase to take notice of in this case…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gawker Media has been proven to have taken compensation for ending people's lives. Gawker ruined people by pushing horrific made-up defamation articles to billions of people and using server technology to force those billions of people to read those defamation movies, articles and fake blog posts. Gawker also paid third-parties to lock those "defamation impressions" in ahead of, and above, billions of other news stories, on the front pages of Google, forever!

Gawker Staff bragged about being "..the MS-13 of media" (Note: MS-13 is the street gang known for killing the most people in the USA). While the inventor of email and Hulk Hogan probably wish the real MS-13 would pay Gawker's Writers a visit, the IRS may prove to be nearly as deadly for Gawker and Univision!

Living beneath a wall of water: Can Oroville residents trust the dam will hold?

Life isn’t exactly back to normal yet in Oroville. The mandatory evacuations ended last Tuesday, but not everyone has returned home, and folks in town have suitcases packed in case they’re ordered to leave again. Dump trucks and helicopters hauling concrete to the dam have become part of the scenery. Some schools remain closed, and with an “atmospheric river” rainstorm poised to roll into the region Monday, people are keeping a wary eye on their cellphones and TV sets, awaiting the next bulletin.

THIS WEEK THE ‘ARCH OF BAAL’ WAS DISPLAYED FOR THE THIRD TIME IN HONOR OF ‘THE WORLD GOVERNMENT SUMMIT’

Did you know that 4,000 world leaders from 130 different countries gathered in Dubai this week for the World Government Summit? It was held from February 12th to February 14th, and it featured more than 100 internationally-known speakers including UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Christine Lagarde and Elon Musk. If you would like to know more about this shadowy group, you can visit the official website right here. The first World Government Summit was held back in 2013, and that one was actually attended by Barack Obama. Unfortunately the mainstream media in the United States was almost entirely silent about this summit, so most of us in the western world didn’t even hear about it.

To honor the spirit of this summit, a reconstructed version of Palmyra’s Arch Of Triumph (also known as the Monumental Arch) was erected in Dubai. Previously it had been put up in London and New York City for brief periods of time, and so this marked only the third time that it has been displayed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a real problem for the "Globalistas", which is... their vision of a one -world government cannot possibly work for the people of the countries enslaved by it. Such a world cannot be a utopia; only a dystopia.

And that is where the Globalista's vision falls prey to revulsion and revolutions. Once people have a taste of freedom from tyranny, they will not go back and re-embrace tyranny; it is just that simple.

“Weapon deliveries to conflict regions urgently need to stop. They inflame the conflicts.”

Exclusive: DHS chief proposes prosecuting parents of children smuggled into U.S.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has issued new orders to agency heads that considerably expand the number of immigrants who can be detained and deported under new executive orders President Donald Trump signed last month.

Under Kelly’s orders, which were contained in two memorandums distributed to agency heads on Friday, hundreds of thousands more immigrants in the United States illegally will be subject to what’s known as expedited removal proceedings to quickly get them out of the country.

The order also would affect thousands of children who arrived in the United States as “unaccompanied minors” and were subsequently reunited with a parent living in the country illegally. Those children would no longer be protected against deportation, and their parents would be subject to criminal prosecution if they had paid human traffickers to bring their children across the border – a common scenario now.

‘You and your family are fired ... Love you’: Dozens lose jobs over immigrant protest

In at least five states, roughly 60 people lost their jobs this week after they skipped work to participate in the “Day Without Immigrants” protest on Thursday, according to local media reports.

The protest, which was aimed at highlighting the importance of immigrants to the U.S. economy, called on all immigrants to not work or buy anything Thursday and succeeding in shutting down businesses across the country, according to CNN. It is unclear, however, how many people participated in the strike, according to ABC News.

Still, around five dozen people say their participation in the protest cost them their employment as businesses fired them for not showing up to work.

The Huge Economic Issue that Washington Isn't Talking About

Within the next 10 years, there's a good chance that 50% of the jobs today will be gone.And no one in Washington is talking about what to do to deal with this likelihood.

The cause of this coming massive economic upheaval is artificial intelligence -- a catch-all term that encompasses everything from driverless cars to sex robots. Its impact is already being felt on the factory floor, where smart machines are making American manufacturers more competitive, more efficient, and more profitable, but without the mass number of workers that used to be the backbone of the American economy.

Donald Trump says he can change all this, that he can bring these jobs back from overseas, or prevent illegal immigrants from taking them. And the president isn't alone. The Democratic Party and the AFL-CIO still believe that a manufacturing Renaissance is possible.

Why the Kennedy-De Niro Vaccine Challenge Matters

Robert Kennedy Jr. and Robert De Niro convened a news conference on Wednesday at the National Press Club to announce a $100,000 cash reward for anyone who identifies a peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that the mercury in vaccines is safe. Though the challenge was perhaps something of a stunt, the significance of the appearance was underscored by Kennedy’s confirming that President Trump may ask him to lead a commission on autism. The consequences of such a commission could extend beyond the narrow vaccine/autism debate. More significantly, the commission could expose the incentives driving vaccination policy, which, in the current political climate, could move mainstream opinion against vaccines and also bolster doubts about the integrity of the health-care system.

Naica's crystal caves hold long-dormant life

Scientists have extracted long-dormant microbes from inside the famous giant crystals of the Naica mountain caves in Mexico - and revived them.

The organisms were likely to have been encased in the striking shafts of gypsum at least 10,000 years ago, and possibly up to 50,000 years ago.

It is another demonstration of the ability of life to adapt and cope in the most hostile of environments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is our species-chauvinism on display again. Humans find the surface of the Earth quite comfortable simply because we evolved here. The deep-crust microbes find the heat and darkness of the rocks comfortable because they evolved there. The life forms that swim around the thermal vents at the floor of the ocean comfortable because they evolved there. Even though the Earth's surface was quite different in the Cretaceous, the giants that lived there found it quite comfortable because that is the conditions they evolved in. Likewise the bacteria in the Gypsum crystals. No doubt any life in Titan's methane pools or floating in the gas giants' atmosphere will be quite comfortable where they evolved.

We should not assume that life is only to be found in conditions on the present surface of the Earth.

Jay Sekulow: Obama Should Be "Held Accountable" For The "Soft Coup" Against Trump

In other words, what until recently was a trickle of private data captured about US individuals by the NSA with only a handful of people having full, immersive access, suddenly became a firehose with thousands of potential witnesses across 16 other agencies, each of whom suddenly became a potential source of leaks about ideological political opponents. And with the universe of potential "leaking" culprits suddenly exploding exponentially, good luck finding the responsible party.

However, the implications are far more serious than just loss of privacy rights.

According to civil right expert and prominent First Amendement Supreme Court lawyer, Jay Sekulow, what the agencies did by leaking the Trump Administration information was not only illegal but "almost becomes a soft coup", one which was spurred by the last minute rule-change by Obama, who intentionally made it far easier for leaks to propagate, and next to impossible to catch those responsible for the leaks.

Snyder: "It's About Time We Had A President Willing To Go To War With Mainstream Media"

Thursday afternoon’s press conference was perhaps the most memorable moment of Donald Trump’s presidency so far. Trump’s blistering attack on the media was quite a spectacle, but the truth is that it was desperately needed. For decades, the mainstream media has dominated political discourse in this country no matter who has been in control of the White House or Congress. They have become masters of guiding and shaping public opinion, and in recent years they have completely discarded any pretense of being “unbiased” or “objective”. These monolithic media organizations relentlessly push the progressive agenda of their owners (the global elite), and that is why the “news” always seems to be just about the same no matter which network it is coming from. Their monopoly is slowly being broken by the rise of the alternative media, but the truth is that most Americans still rely on just a handful of ultra-powerful media organizations for their news.

Merkel Says There Is A "Problem" With The Euro, Blames Mario Draghi

Two weeks ago, German finance minister Wolfgang Schauble confirmed Donald Trump's charge that the Euro is far "too low" for Germany, but said he is unable to do anything about it and instead blamed Mario Draghi. “The euro exchange rate is, strictly speaking, too low for the German economy’s competitive position,” he told Tagesspiegel on February 5. “When ECB chief Mario Draghi embarked on the expansive monetary policy, I told him he would drive up Germany’s export surplus?.?.?.?I promised then not to publicly criticise this [policy] course. But then I don’t want to be criticized for the consequences of this policy.”

Then, on Saturday, his boss German Chancellor Angela Merkel echoed her finance minister, and also admitted that the euro is indeed "too low" for Germany, but once again made clear that Berlin had no power to address this "problem" because monetary policy was set by the independent European Central Bank.

Norway Central Banker Warns Of Massive 50% Drop In Wealth Fund Assets To Cover Budget Deficits

Back in August, we noted that, for the first time since it's creation in 1996, the Norwegian government had started raiding its sovereign wealth fund in 2016 to cover government deficits. Then in October the Nordic country revealed plans to massively increase withdrawals by over 25% in 2017, to $15 billion, to cover a budget hole that was expected to be roughly 8% of GDP.

That said, Norway's ultimate GDP potential, and therefore budget deficits, are heavily dependent on oil prices so any further weakening of crude could result in even more withdrawals. Moreover, given the substantial YoY increase, it's important to recall that there are fiscal limits imposed on fund withdrawals equal to 4% of assets, or roughly $36 billion, which could come into play at some point in the future if oil prices remain "lower for longer."

America is No Longer Top Dog: Chinese Military “Reaching Near-Parity” With the West

We’re a wealthy nation with an unbelievably massive military budget. They could never conduct enough scientific research or build enough advanced war machines to compete with us in a conventional war.

Or could they?

It appears that China might be able to. Or at least that’s what the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) thinks. They’re a British think tank that’s been around since 1958, and they have countless members who formerly worked for the British and American governments. The IISS specializes in researching geopolitical issues, and every year they publish the Military Balance report, which examines the military capabilities of the world’s nations. Their latest issue should give the American defense establishment pause.

$8.5 Billion U.S. Counter Narcotics Effort in Afghanistan Boosts Opium Production

The U.S. government’s multi-billion-dollar effort to counter narcotics in Afghanistan is a humiliating failure that’s resulted in a huge increase in poppy cultivation and opium production. Despite the free-flow of American tax dollars to combat the crisis, opium production rose 43% in the Islamic nation, to an estimated 4,800 tons, and approximately 201,000 hectares of land are under poppy cultivation, representing a 10% increase in one year alone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not a failure. You were only told the money was to suppress opium growing, but the opposite is true. If you go back to Bo Gritz' "A Nation Betrayed" you will hear the story of the money the US spent in Vietnam to counter opium, but the money was actually used to build a paved road up the the front of Khun Sa's opium plantation, to speed deliveries back to Air America and thence to the United States!

You have probably heard the phrase, "The French Connection", both a book and a movie. The "French Connection" preceded the US' involvement in Vietnam when the French were on control and French Intelligence had the opium pipeline.

TRIGGERED: Democratic Rep. Calls for Official Probe into Trump’s Unsecured Phone

Reports have been circulating that Trump is circumventing traditional security protocol for his electronic communications by using two separate cell phones. The president seems to have set up a sort of “secret system” with friends and colleagues.

A person who wants to have the president’s ear can simply call and either leave a voicemail on the old phone, or hope that Trump sees the caller ID. If the president so chooses, he will call back from his state-sponsored secure device, bypassing the standard procedure, while still seemingly observing the letter of the law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump needs his own secure system. Because it was the OFFICIAL call that was leaked, not the one on his personal phone.

Chemistry Expert: Carbon Dioxide Can’t Cause Global Warming

Carbon dioxide, we are told, traps heat that has been irradiated by the oceans, and this warms the oceans and melts the polar ice caps. While this seems a plausible proposition at first glance, when one actually examines it closely a major flaw emerges.

In a nutshell, water takes a lot of energy to heat up, and air doesn’t contain much. In fact, on a volume/volume basis, the ratio of heat capacities is about 3300 to 1. This means that to heat 1 litre of water by 1?C it would take 3300 litres of air that was 2?C hotter, or 1 litre of air that was about 3300?C hotter!

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. If you ran a cold bath and then tried to heat it by putting a dozen heaters in the room, does anyone believe that the water would ever get hot?

Angela Merkel admits euro’s FAILURES as she hints at bringing Deutsche Mark BACK

UNDER FIRE German Chancellor Angela Merkel has hinted for the first time that she believes the Deutsche Mark is more valuable than the Euro.

In a telling statement issued during the visit of US vice-president Mike Pence to Munich, Frau Merkel revealed even she is becoming concerned with the European wide currency.

And amid calls for the Deutsche Mark to be returned in her native Germany she said the ECB's policy is not geared towards her country and benefits other member states.

The 63-year-old Christian Democrats leader, who is facing being booted out of office over her failed policies, said she believed the country's former currency would have a "different value" if it was still in place.

And she implied her country's involvement in the single currency, which is used by 19 of the 28 member states of the European Union, is propping up less productive economies.

Jun-OH-NO! NASA's Jupiter probe in busted helium-valve drama

NASA's Juno probe will not venture any closer to Jupiter, and will stay in its current 53-day orbit for the remainder of its mission. That's due to faulty helium valves in the propulsion system, space boffins announced today.

The spacecraft has been circling the gas giant since July 2016. NASA scientists had planned to fire the engine to reduce its orbit period to 14 days, bringing it closer to Jupiter’s surface to scrutinize the alien world. The more intimate the probe gets with the gas goliath, the more it can peek through the layers of clouds, and study the structure, atmosphere and magnetosphere of the planet.

Well, scratch that. A malfunction with two helium valves in the spacecraft’s main engine has dashed the space agency's confidence in its ability to move Juno closer without losing it completely. There's still plenty of work the craft can do, and simply put, it can't do that if it's out of control or destroyed.

A former Barack Obama campaign manager turned Uber executive was fined $90,000 by the Chicago Board of Ethics for failing to register as a lobbyist while lobbying Mayor Rahm Emanuel on behalf of the rideshare company.

SHOCKING! Look What Obama's Activists Are Doing To Drive Protests

An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump’s policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions.

Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall.

In a new Facebook post, OFA calls on activists to mobilize against Republicans from now until Feb. 26, when “representatives are going to be in their home districts.”

Fake Scholarship on “Fake News”

It was with some surprise then when I ran across a monograph published by the prestigious National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), of all places, entitled “Social Media and Fake News in the 2016 Election.” It will cost you $5 if you want to get it from them, so if you want to check what I have to say about the work you need to go to the Stanford University site where one of the paper’s two authors, Matthew Gentzkow, is employed as a professor of economics. The other author, Hunt Allcott, is an economics professor at New York University.

Their paper is long on scholarly trappings, methodological razzle dazzle, and especially on innuendo, but it is very short on good scholarship. Without the insidious, establishment-supporting innuendo, in fact, it really amounts to little more than a showy belaboring of the obvious.

Two days after the Pentagon's new chief Jim Mattis appeared before a full conference room in Brussels, and issued an ultimatum to NATO to boost spending or risk a cut in US support, Germany's Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen "fired a salvo of warnings" back at Washington, cautioning it against hurting European cohesion, abandoning core Western values and seeking a rapprochement with Russia behind the backs of its allies. In a hard-hitting speech at the Munich Security Conference against President Donald Trump's administration, German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen urged the United States not to take transatlantic ties for granted.

America Too Broke to Fix Crumbling Infrastructure? “Bridges, Roads, Airports In Long Term Collapse”

It is certainly solid to suggest that the entire national infrastructure is in bad need of an overhaul. Bridges, roads, tunnels, sewage, water pipes, the electric grid and more are corroded, toxic, faulty and blemishes. They reflect the vibrance and prosperity of the country, and it is no surprise to find the worst cases of these failing public works in some of the most economically depressed areas of the country, with high unemployment, and in the big cities where too many people are crammed together and overflowing the various utilities and roadways.

In other words, elites and Marxists will seek to “brand” you (just as corporations use branding) in the minds of the masses so that they can take away your ability to define yourself as anything else.

I have so many issues with the above reporting it’s hard to know where to start. Everything mentioned above is given to us secondhand via “anonymous American officials.” Nowhere do I see any specific quotes from the transcript, despite the fact that the paper admits it talked with federal officials who read it. Why not? Why must we hear about the content of the transcripts secondhand from anonymous officials? This is the most significant red flag with this whole story. If the leakers were truly interested in transparency, and wanted the public to know the truth, why not leak the transcript to Wikileaks and let the public decide?

NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND GETS BURIED IN SNOW, AND SKIERS LOVE IT

The gods have answered the call of skiers, snowmobilers and dog mushers, dumping mounds of snow in northern New England following little snow last season during the warmest winter on record in some spots.

The biggest snowstorms of this season, followed by days of flurries, have unloaded more than 2 feet of snow — higher amounts in the mountains — in the past week across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

"I haven't seen skiing this good in Vermont in over 20 years," said Tom Luxon, of Norwich, on Thursday as he was leaving the slopes at Burke Mountain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mounds of snow, and still they have to echo NOAA's claim it's the warmest winter on record.

Reasons Why Michael Flynn Was Fatality #1 in the Trump Presidency Takedown

The alternative press tends to view the ruling elite as one monolithic centralized amalgamation of robber baron bankers and oil moguls personified by a handful of elitist bloodlines like the Rothschild and Rockefeller families, together wielding near-absolute power over all their Fortune 500 corporate monopolies (including the 6 mega media giants for 90% optimal information control) as well as national oligarchic governments (through legalized bribery) as a means to further enslave and micro-control the global masses. Though this world-view may largely be accurate, it fails to take into account the not so nuanced dynamic presently rearing its ugly head, manifesting as splintered, behind-the-scenes fractionalization of deep state politics into two warring camps with largely, blindly ignorant followers.

MEDIA BEX - Donald Trump considers mobilising 100,000 National Guard troops to round up undocumented immigrants

Donald Trump's administration is considering mobilising as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up undocumented immigrants, it has been reported.

The Associated Press obtained a draft memo that calls for the unprecedented militarisation of the US immigration enforcement. But if implemented, governors in 11 states included in the draft memo would have final say on whether troops are actually deployed.

The draft memo, written by Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, includes four states that border Mexico – Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California – but extends to seven contiguous states – Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and Oregon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The White House has already said the AP report is fake news and there is no such plan, and yet the Independent (the same newspaper that claimed back in 2000 that snowfalls were a thing of the past) is still running it. Note there is no commenting on this article.

Mercenary Group “Blackwater” Receives $204m Government Contract

‘Blackwater Air’ Is Back, and Flying for U.S. Special Forces:

A mercenary air force that became a symbol of the U.S. occupation of Iraq is back in action—this time in Central Africa, supporting a shadowy American U.S. Special Forces commando operation targeting the Lord’s Resistance Army.

In late January, a source on the ground in Central African Republic spotted a Sikorsky S-61 helicopter with the registry number N408RC carrying American Special Forces troops. The LRA, a cultish band of thieves and rapists led by warlord Joseph Kony, is most active in the forested region where Central African Republic, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo meet.

BEX ALERT - 376 Untrustworthy News Sources

Fake news has become a catchall term for news sources that lack journalistic integrity. These sites use sensational headlines, make false claims, exaggerate the editorial spin to reflect a bias, are misleading, are conspiratorial, are anti-science, promote propaganda, are written in satire or just plain hoaxes. Many of the sites are untrustworthy because they begin with a premise that is close to a truth and build a false story around it. Please check your sources and your emotions as you read the articles on these sites.
