Microsoft Admits Normal Windows 10 Users Are 'Testing' Unstable Updates

Remember when Microsoft's disastrous Windows 10 October Update removed entire user folders like documents and photos? Or the Surface Book 2 owners who had their systems rendered useless from update KB4467682? This happened because users were manually checking for updates and not waiting for the update to get automatically triggered. Why is this a big deal? Because the average Windows user believes that's a safe way to get their system updates as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it's the exact opposite, and Microsoft's Corporate President for Windows has admitted it in a recent blog post.

‘Astonishing fraud: Pentagon stashes away unspent money & then uses it without any accountability’

RT spoke to David Lindorff, investigative journalist, and columnist for the Nation, who said that US military budget is now “larger than all the US debt in the history of the country.”

“Pentagon budget is $750 billion dollars at this point. And each year it has been lower than that before. And yet their accounting shows that they have $21 trillion additionally in the budget, the one they submit to Congress each year. One budget year it was $6.5 trillion budget just for the army – which that year really only had 122 billion,“ he continued.

He explained that Pentagon accountant service is “making up numbers and plugging them in …to make the financial documents that they submit to Congress each year for showing what they have spent the prior year and year before completely incomprehensible and unauditable.”

He called it an “astonishing fraud”.

Princeton says SCIENCE is racist and “gendered” because so many men pursue it… is anything safe from the libtards?

In the eyes of Catherine Clune-Taylor, a postdoctoral researcher of color within the department of Gender and Sexuality Studies at Princeton University, science as we currently know it may be invalid. The reason, she says, is that too many men are involved with its pursuit – the implication being that science is automatically racist, sexist, and homophobic because more males than females tend to gravitate towards this particular line of study.

Financial Bounty Hunters Testify: Clinton Foundation Operated As Foreign Agent

The Clinton Foundation operated as a foreign agent ‘early in its life’ and ‘throughout it’s existence’ and did not operate as a 501c3 charitable foundation as required by its and is not entitled to its status as a nonprofit, alleged two highly qualified forensic investigators, accompanied by three other investigators, said in explosive testimony Thursday to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Mark Meadows (R-NC), the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, led the hearing today. Two Clinton Foundation whistleblowers spoke at the hearing today. And Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch also testified.

Meadows told the audience today at the beginning of the hearing that the Department of Justice was unwilling to make John Huber available for the hearing today.

Huber was assigned months ago by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate several controversies about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

Spam email with bomb threat sent to multiple Anchorage businesses, police say

A message containing terroristic threats has been sent to multiple Anchorage businesses, prompting evacuations in some cases. The Anchorage Police Department is investigating, but a spokesperson said the threat is not considered to be credible at this time.

The message, which APD spokesperson MJ Thim described as a spam email, was sent to a number of local businesses, including the Dimond Center Mall and others. For full disclosure, KTUU also received the threatening message on Thursday. Thim could not say exactly how many other businesses received the message.

Thim said that the threat went national, and that the origin of the message is currently unknown.

"Right now it is not thought to be a credible threat, but we are not taking chances, and investigating each threat thoroughly," Thim said.

OPPOSITION PROTESTS AGAINST LABOUR AMENDMENT: POLICE HAVE USED TEAR GAS, TWO OFFICERS WERE INJURED – PHOTOS, VIDEOS

Supporters of the opposition parties gathered in front of Parliament on Wednesday afternoon to protest against changes to the labour code adopted earlier in the day.

The protesters, many of whom chanted “down with the government”, marched from the Parliament building to Margaret Bridge and then on to ruling Fidesz headquarters near the City Park.

Two demonstrators climbed on a balcony, while others attempted to enter the building.

The demonstration in front of the Fidesz building ended at 7pm, but participants went back to Parliament. By 9pm the crowd filled Kossuth Square in front of the building, and threw objects at the police cordon.

One Chicken? That will be 14 million Bolivars… or .03 Dash

Kentucky Fried Chicken was rumored to be the latest fast-food restaurant in Venezuela to accept Dash cryptocurrency for payment.

(Actually, KFC denies these claims, but then Church’s Chicken stepped up to the plate and announced it will accept the tokens.)

Why Dash? Because the cost of a chicken now exceeds $14 million bolivars, the Venezuelan currency.

Hyperinflation in the socialist country has caused the currency to lose about 99% of its value since last year… And even then it had already been through years of hyperinflation.

Officially, the exchange rate is $1 USD for 248,000 bolivars. In reality, the exchange rate on the black market is $1 USD for over 6.6 million bolivars.

Chérif Chekatt was killed in the Neudorf neighbourhood of the city following a counter terror operation launched on Thursday evening, according to several French police sources.

The 29-year-old has been at large since Tuesday, when he is thought to have opened fire on visitors and tourists at the market, killing three people and wounding 13 others.

Senate rebukes Saudis and Trump over death of journalist Khashoggi with vote to end U.S. military involvement in Yemen

BREAKING: The Senate voted, 57-38, to end U.S. military involvement in Yemen as lawmakers continue to express outrage and frustration with the president’s refusal to condemn Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi despite the CIA’s finding that Mohammed likely is responsible.

Virgin Galactic completed its longest rocket-powered flight ever on Thursday, taking a step ahead in the nascent business of space tourism.

The two pilots on board Virgin Galactic's spacecraft Unity became the company's first astronauts. Virgin Group founder Richard Branson was on hand to watch the historic moment.

"Many of you will know how important the dream of space travel is to me personally. Ever since I watched the moon landings as a child I have looked up to the skies with wonder," Branson said after the flight. "This is a momentous day and I could not be more proud of our teams who together have opened a new chapter of space exploration."

Gilets Jaunes: A Glimmer of Hope and Sanity

Governments in North America are largely totalitarian already. It’s a covert form of totalitarianism best described as “inverted totalitarianism[1]”. One result is that people in North America for the most part have no appreciation of substantive geopolitical issues.

Consequently, we are being robbed blind, and our diseconomies are being further destroyed, for the benefit of Al Qaeda, and transnational oligarch classes. Truth is stranger than fiction.

The only glimmer of hope at the moment are the Gilets Jaunes[2] protests in France. Macron’s tax grab is all about serving imperial agendas at the expense not only of target countries, but also at the expense of a habitable planet, and a sustainable French economy as well.

Canadians spent over $32 billion[3] in 2017-2018 alone for a military that supports NATO’s globalizing, entirely toxic and supremely criminal agenda. Al Qaeda and like-minded terrorists in Syria have benefited for years thanks to our largesse.

CHINA PLANS UNDERWATER AI BASE IN SOUTH CHINA SEA

China is planning an underwater sea base, a latter-day "Atlantis" that runs on artificial intelligence that could aid Beijing in defense operations in the South China Sea, according to a recent press report.

The South China Morning Post reported Monday China is building the center that could become the "first artificial intelligence colony on Earth."

The project is named after the ancient Greek underworld of Hades and was launched at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.

Chinese President Xi Jinping may be behind the project. In April, during a visit to a deep-sea research institute at Sanya, Hainan Province, Xi told scientists to do something never done before

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Chinese engineers and scientists value excellence; I am very sure, to the US government's consternation, that this will be a brilliant project, and will help the Chinese government project power through the region.

HOW SCHOOL DISTRICTS WEAPONIZE CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES AGAINST UNCOOPERATIVE PARENTS

chooling is adept at rooting out individuality and enforcing compliance. In his book, Understanding Power, Noam Chomsky writes:

In fact, the whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on—because they’re dysfunctional to the institutions.

This filtering process begins very early in a child’s schooling as conformity is rewarded and divergence is punished.

PUBLIC SCHOOLING BREEDS OBEDIENCE
Most of us played this game as schoolchildren. We know the rules. The kids who raise their hands, color in the lines, and obey succeed; the kids who challenge the rules struggle. The problem now is that the rules are extending beyond the classroom. Parents are increasingly required to obey, to conform to a school’s demands even if they believe such orders may not be appropriate for their child.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of power over a kid's life doesn't belong to the public education folks; it belongs to the parents, period, end of discussion.

Alleged Russian spy Maria Butina pleads guilty to engaging in conspiracy against US

Alleged Russian spy Maria Butina pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday for conspiracy to act as an illegal foreign agent in the United States.

Butina, 30, was accused of working to infiltrate Republican political circles through groups such as the National Rifle Association to bolster Russian interests.

Butina said she acted "under direction of" a Russian official whom CNN has identified as Alexander Torshin, the recently retired deputy governor of the Central Bank of Russia.

"Butina sought to establish unofficial lines of communication with Americans having power and influence over US politics," the prosecutor said in a Washington courtroom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently merely talking to a Russian is now a crime.

‘Police shot at us deliberately': Friend of French woman who lost eye in Yellow Vest clashes to RT

A 20-year-old student, identified as Fiorina, came to Paris for a “Yellow Vest” rally last weekend, Maxime Jacob, the woman’s friend, told RT France. “I was around when we were at Champs Elysees. At around 12am we asked gendarmes to let us leave the place but they were ordered not to allow anyone out.”

At some point, violent rioters attacked a store nearby, setting protective shutters on fire. Suddenly, riot police began dispersing the crowd so that fire brigades could make it to the site. “We were on the left, very far away [from there],” Jacob explained, saying he and Fiorina were pushed back to a police barricade.

But, he claims, police fired shots on both sides regardless of where the arsonists were. “And then, during another attack, an anti-riot grenade exploded several meters away from me,” he recalled. “Seconds later, Fiorina was hit and she fell to the ground.”

Jacob believes his friend wasn’t hit accidentally.

Trump’s Dilemma And Refuting The Gold/Yuan Peg Theory

The dollar index has been rising since Trump began his war on trade. But right now it’s at the same 97 index level as when Trump was elected. Recall that Trump’s administration pushed down starting in 2017 to stimulate exports and attempt to cut the trade deficit. The dollar fell from 97 to 88. Gold ran from $1125 to as high as $1360 – a key technical breakout level – by late April 2018. Something had to be done to keep gold from moving higher…Trump started his Trade War in March, which pushed the dollar higher. Gold began tank. Ironically, the trade deficit one again began to balloon.

If Trump wants to “win” the trade war, he needs to push the dollar a lot lower. This in turn will send the price of gold soaring. This means that the western Central Banks/BIS will have to live with a rising price gold, something I’m not sure they’re prepared to do. This could set up an interesting behind-the-scenes clash between Trump and the western banking elitists.

Germany Has No Interest In New Anti-Russia Sanctions

Incident at the Kerch Bridge: The US Congress has condemned Russia for “aggression” and demands that Russia return the ships; many a European politician has called for “More Sanctions!” after the Kerch Bridge incident. But it’s not going to happen. On this subject, Ukraine and Lithuania are all alone.

In Berlin, they consider it impractical to introduce new anti-Russian restrictive measures in connection with the incident in the Black Sea.

Germany opposes the introduction of new sanctions against the Russian Federation for the incident between Russian and Ukrainian warships near the Kerch Strait. This was announced on Friday by the head of the German Foreign Ministry, Heiko Maas.

Io Saturnalia! The Roman roots of 'Christmas'

Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, whatever your 'Reason for the Season', most of the December holiday traditions that we celebrate today can be traced back to the Ancient Roman holiday of Saturnalia (with a healthy dose of inspiration also coming via the Vikings). From tree decorations, wreaths, ornaments, boughs of holly, carolling (albeit with more clothes and less rude songs these days), gift-giving, and even gingerbread men, most of what we identify as 'Christmas' has roots going back thousands of years.

Saudi Arabia Under Fire From All Sides

Saudi Arabia bet that it could defy the U.S. when it pushed for oil production cuts at the OPEC+ meeting, gambling that President Trump would not lash out in retaliation despite some heavy-handed pressure from his twitter feed ahead of the summit in Vienna. This week, the bet seems to have paid off.

To be sure, Saudi Arabia’s decision to push for oil production cuts was a bit of a no brainer. The extreme budgetary pressure facing Riyadh from low oil prices is vastly more concerning than any legal or political action from the U.S. Congress or White House. And absent a deal in Vienna, oil prices could have fallen further.

NASA's Juno Mission Halfway to Jupiter Science

On Dec. 21, at 8:49:48 a.m. PST (11:49:48 a.m. EST) NASA's Juno spacecraft will be 3,140 miles (5,053 kilometers) above Jupiter's cloud tops and hurtling by at a healthy clip of 128,802 mph (207,287 kilometers per hour). This will be the 16th science pass of the gas giant and will mark the solar-powered spacecraft's halfway point in data collection during its prime mission.

Juno is in a highly-elliptical 53-day orbit around Jupiter. Each orbit includes a close passage over the planet's cloud deck, where it flies a ground track that extends from Jupiter's north pole to its south pole.

U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber won’t testify before House panel on Clinton probe

U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber won't testify Thursday before the House Oversight subcommittee as its chairman had announced previously.

Huber had been assigned by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate several controversies Republicans have raised about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, many of them stoked by right-wing activists who believe she should be prosecuted.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the Oversight’s subcommittee on government operations, had hoped Huber would provide an update on his probe.

“Mr. Huber with the Department of Justice and FBI has been having an investigation — at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation, so we’ve set a hearing date for December the 5th,” he told Hill.TV previously.

That hearing was postponed until Thursday because of President George H.W. Bush's funeral service.

Media Buries Key Facts to Conceal Migrant Health Threat—TB, Hepatitis, HIV

Here’s a great example of the mainstream media distorting information to promote a liberal agenda, an act that is especially pervasive when it comes to immigration coverage. A story published by NBC news, and reiterated by various other outlets, claims illegal immigrants don’t bring disease into the United States. The headline reads: “Migrants don’t bring disease. In fact, they help fight it, report says.” The article focuses on a study commissioned by a medical journal called the Lancet and University College London. The finished product is titled “Global patterns of mortality in international migrants: a systematic review and meta-analysis” and one of the researchers, Dr. Paul Spiegel, proclaims that migrants spreading disease is a “false argument” used to keep them out. The editor of the Lancet said; “In too many countries, the issue of migration is used to divide societies and advance a populist agenda.”

SUSPECTED TERRORIST LEADING MIGRANT GROUP DEMANDING ENTRY INTO US

A suspect in a 1987 bombing that wounded six American soldiers in Honduras is leading a group of migrants demanding entry into the United States.

Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa organized a march of approximately 100 migrants to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, on Tuesday, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Ulloa delivered a letter to the consulate on behalf of the migrants, asking for either entry into the U.S. or a payment of $50,000 per person.

“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa told the Union-Tribune. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”

Ulloa has lived in Mexico since 1987 after fleeing Honduras in the wake of a bombing that wounded six soldiers. Ulloa was suspected of planting a bomb in a Chinese restaurant, but received asylum from Mexico, whose government described the suspected terrorist as a “freedom fighter.”

UK Spies Say They're Dropping Bulk Data Collection For Bulk Equipment Interference

UK spies are changing their minds. Rapidly. Sure, bulk data collection is cool. But you know what's really cool? Mass interference with electronic devices.

At the time the Investigatory Powers Bill was passing through Parliament – it was signed into law in 2016 – EI [Electronic Interference] hadn't been used, but it was already seen an alternative to bulk interception.

However, it was expected to be authorised through targeted or targeted thematic warrants; as then-independent reviewer of terrorism David Anderson wrote at the time, "bulk EI is likely to be only sparingly used".

[...]

During the passage of the Investigatory Powers legislation, he said, the government anticipated bulk EI warrants would be "the exception", and "be limited to overseas 'discovery' based EI operations".

But with encryption increasingly commonplace, the spies want the exception to edge towards becoming the rule.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission found that the Broward Sheriff's Office displayed deficiencies in everything from training and command to individual performance in its response to the Parkland shooting.

It has recommended that the sheriff's office investigate the performance of seven deputies who failed to engage the gunman despite hearing gunshots at the school.

Iran Confirms Pompeo's Charge Of Testing New Ballistic Missile "Capable Of Hitting Europe"

Iranian media has quoted a senior Revolutionary Guards commander on Tuesday as confirming Iran had recently carried out a ballistic missile test, which is the first time the country has owned up to allegations made by US officials previously this month.

The confirmation appeared in the semi-official Fars News Agency and is the first time Iran affirmed charges made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who earlier this month said Iran had test-fired “a medium range ballistic missile that is capable of carrying multiple warheads.” Pompeo made the charge on December 1st while calling on Iran "to cease immediately all activities relating to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons."

Japanese Refiners Will Resume Iran Crude Purchases Next Month

Japanese refiners will start buying Iranian crude oil in January, but will only continue buying until March to make sure they don’t get on the bad side of Washington in case the 180-day sanction waivers are not extended, S&P Global Platts reports, citing the head of the country’s Petroleum Association.

"We aim to lift as much as possible over January-March to keep our hope for the next [period]," Takashi Tsukioka said.

Japan is one of Iran’s largest oil importers, but it is also the United States’ staunchest ally in Asia—and the combination of the two has not worked to Tokyo’s advantage. Earlier this year, while the government tried to secure a waiver from the U.S. State Department, local refiners stopped all purchases of Iranian oil ahead of the sanctions that came into effect on November 5.

Virus That Haunted Aramco In 2012 Is Back

A variant of the Shamoon malware that hit Saudi Aramco’s servers six years ago is back, Axios reports, citing a release from the cybersecurity unit of Alphabet, Chronicle. According to the Chronicle release, the company had detected a file infected with Shamoon in its database VirusTotal.

The malware, Chronicle said, was uploaded from Italy and is different from the previous two variants. Those moved through networks via pre-programmed credentials while this one stays on the computer it is installed on first. There is no command and control infrastructure that would allow the attackers to communicate with the virus, and what the virus does this time is encrypt all files irreversibley rather than replacing them with politically significant images, Axios reports.

Homelessness on the rise in some U.S. cities

Homelessness has declined across most of the U.S. over the last decade as the economy has crawled back from the housing crash. In some cities, however, the problem is getting worse, with researchers pointing to a one culprit in particular: rising rents.

A new analysis from Zillow found that the incidence of homelessness is growing faster in the least affordable rental housing markets, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

"It's undoubtedly good news that the overall level of homelessness has fallen nationwide, even as housing costs have increased. But that zoomed-out view obscures some very real, local tensions between housing affordability and homelessness, and ignores the reality that success in tackling homelessness in one community doesn't necessarily have the same effect in another," said Skylar Olsen, director of economic research and outreach at Zillow, a provider of real estate data, in a statement.

Tennessee U.S. Rep.-elect Mark Green alleges vaccines may cause autism, questions CDC data

A soon-to-be congressman from Tennessee told constituents Tuesday he believed vaccines may be causing autism, questioning data from the Centers for Disease Control and other institutions disproving such a theory.

Not only did Republican Mark Green, a Congressman-elect from Clarksville who is also a medical doctor, express hesitation about the CDC's stance on vaccines, he also said he believed the federal health agency has "fraudulently managed" the data.

His remarks came in response to an audience question at a town hall meeting in Franklin from a woman identifying herself as the parent of a young adult with autism. The woman was concerned about possible cuts to Medicaid funding.
