Industry Group Warns German “Electricity Prices To Rise Significantly”, Fueled By Green Energies!

One thing is clear: Germans were fooled and deceived by politicians and activists into thinking that the transition to renewable energies would not cost much, reduce pollutants, create a clean environment, improve the climate and create many jobs.

None of these have come true.

Electricity prices have skyrocketed, the landscape is being industrialized and Germany has not reduced its greenhouse gases in more than 7 years. Moreover the climate is still the same. Now Germany’s industrial base is eroding.

Massive criminal conspiracy unravels: Hillary Clinton took $145M from Russians to sell out the U.S. uranium supply to America’s enemies (and the FBI knew all along)

We have truly reached the point in American history where criminal indictments need to be immediately leveled against James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Robert Mueller and a dozen other high-ranking officials who are now known to have been complicit in one of the most treasonous criminal cover-ups in American history.

Putin on North Korea Crisis: Don’t Back Kim Jong Un Into a Corner

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Thursday that North Korea must not be "backed into a corner" and urged dialogue to end its nuclear standoff with the U.S.

Tensions have increased between Pyongyang and Washington in recent weeks, with President Donald Trump promising in August that North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" if it threatens the U.S. and calling Kim Jong Un, the North's leader, "rocket man" in a speech at the U.N. last month.

Putin did not mention the U.S. specifically on Thursday, but warned of the growing possibility of conflict and pointed out that North Korea is a "sovereign country."

"Problems should be solved in dialogue, and North Korea should not be backed into a corner," Putin said in a speech to the elite of Russia’s foreign policy establishment and foreign guests at a meeting organized by the Valdai Discussion Club near the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is thoroughy correct on this, which means President Trump will not listen to a word he has said, and will continue to provoke until North Korea either does something rash, or has it done for them, courtesy of a US-invoked false flag.

An Open Letter to Women Who Want Gun Control

Dear Women Who Are Fighting for Gun Control:

Please give me just a few moments of your time so I can talk to you, one woman to another. We truly do want the same things. This is not an attack on you or the things you believe in, but rather, a discussion of empowerment.

I am sure that your heart is in the right place when you tell us that guns should be banned for the good of humanity. You see the aftermath of horrific events like the Pulse nightclub shooting and the concert in Las Vegas and you are horrified. I am too. You are convinced that the world would be a better place with no guns at all. I am not.

You hear the impassioned pleas from celebrities like the ones in the video below and you are inspired to take action to make America a safer place.

I believe that your premise (personal safety) is valid but your conclusion (gun control) is wrong.

Shake-Up at Democratic National Committee, Longtime Officials Ousted

A shake-up is underway at the Democratic National Committee as several key longtime officials have lost their posts, exposing a still-raw rift in the party and igniting anger among those in its progressive wing who see retaliation for their opposition to DNC Chairman Tom Perez.

The ousters come ahead of the DNC's first meeting, in Las Vegas, Nevada, since Perez took over as chairman with a pledge this year to unite a party that had become badly divided during the brutal Bernie Sanders-Hillary Clinton 2016 primary race.

Complaints began immediately after party officials saw a list of Perez's appointments to DNC committees and his roster of 75 "at-large" members, who are chosen by the chair.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...the brutal Bernie Sanders-Hillary Clinton 2016 primary race."?!?!?

Brutal, my ASTROLABE: these Democratic primaries were more crooked than a dog's hind leg, with Hillary's Clintonistas stealing them from Sanders; all the legitimate evidence points this way
.

And unless, and until, Democrats at the national level get their heads around this, and understand why Trump won the election, they will miss any opportunities to regain the reins of power in Congress in next year's mid terms, and will completely zorch their chances of winning the Presidency in 2020.

And folks, you have a triple-threat candidate from right here in Hawaii to run as a Democratic Presidential candidate, if you have the horse-sense to get behind her; this is Hawaiian House Representative Tulsi Gabbard, a minority; a veteran; and a very active voice for peace in the House of Representatives.

But of course, that last bit makes her an anathema to the corporations which own you, doesn't it?!?!?

George Soros’s Daughter Gives $500K to Planned Parenthood Votes

The daughter of leftwing billionaire philanthropist George Soros donated $500,000 to Planned Parenthood Votes, the political action arm of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.
According to Federal Election Commission filings, Andrea Soros Colombel made the donation to Planned Parenthood Votes on August 1.

“The donation accounts for more than a quarter of the money that the group has raised so far this year, which shows $1.7 million in contributions between January and the end of August,” the Washington Free Beacon reports.

In 2016, Soros Colombel donated $1.25 million to Planned Parenthood Votes. That same year, her father gave the Super PAC $1.5 million, and his son, Jonathan Soros, donated $1 million to the political action group.

Camille Paglia Says that Women’s and Gender Studies Departments Should be Defunded

“The English Department had taken a century to develop,” Paglia began. “All of a sudden, to create a department with a politicized agenda from the start taught by people without any training in that field? What should be the parameters of the field? What should be the requirements of the field? How about biology? If you are going to be discussing gender, that should be a number one requirement.”

Paglia argued that active programs in the field were thrown together out of the urgency to highlight women’s issues in the curriculum of the American academy. “The administrators wanted to solve a public relations problem. They had a situation with very few women faculty nationwide, at the time when the women’s movement had just started up. The spotlight of tension was on them. They needed women faculty fast. They needed the women’s subject on the agenda fast. So they just like, poof! ‘Let there be Women’s Studies.'”

Merkel in TURMOIL: Chancellor insists her tactics work as leader QUITS over election

Mrs Merkel’s CDU party had its worst parliamentary election result since 1949 in the September poll, as well as experiencing devastating losses in regional votes.

However the German Chancellor has doubled down, claiming: “I do not see what we should do differently.”

The general secretary of the CDU’s Bavarian sister party, the CSU, has made equally oblivious comments, claiming the Austrian election results show “that elections can be won right from the middle” - despite huge gains for the right in both Austria and Germany.

Meanwhile the CDU regional president of Saxony has stepped down after especially disastrous local election results.

Not only did they supervise the election program of the Russian president and monitor the ratings, but according to some signs, we can assume that those elections were falsified at all, and Gennady Zyuganov won them a real victory, the author explains.

Cambridge University students given trigger warnings for Shakespeare plays

Academics have criticised "trigger warnings" after Cambridge University students were warned about "potentially distressing topics" in plays by Shakespeare.

English literature undergraduates were apparently cautioned that a lecture focusing on Titus Andronicus and The Comedy of Errors would include "discussions of sexual violence" and "sexual assault".

According to The Telegraph, the trigger warnings were posted in the English Faculty's 'Notes on Lectures' document which is circulated to students at the university.

America’s Predictable Betrayal of the Iran Deal

In a 2009 report titled, “Which Path to Persia?: Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran” (PDF), corporate-financier funded US policy think tank the Brookings Institution would explicitly call for a deal to be offered by the US to Iran only to be intentionally broken and used as a pretext for direct military confrontation.

The report would propose (emphasis added):

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A war against Iran will most likely mean a war with Russia, whose military and civilian leadership have long pledged to defend it, should it get attacked.

Oh yes, Saudi Arabia and Israel will "cheer the US military on", should such a confrontation begin; but Americans had better damned well wake up to the cold, hard reality here that the costs of such a war will be borne only through American blood and American money.

In connection with this upcoming war, I see the reinstitution of the draft in the US as a defninite probability in the near future; and this time, the US military will not only be coming for our young men, but also our young women as well.

Why it's also hard for Hollywood's men to talk about being sexually assaulted

The Harvey Weinstein scandal has opened up a dialogue of epic proportions surrounding issues of sexual assault and harassment, with numerous women in Hollywood speaking up to tell their stories. They’ve been joined by a small chorus of men who shared that they, too, had been victims of sexual assault and harassment, perpetrated by men of power in the industry.

The discussion began with Terry Crews, when the actor and former NFL star took to Twitter to share how the Weinstein news was giving him PTSD. Why? “My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates,” Crews explained in a series of tweets.

SYRIA WAR REPORT – OCTOBER 19, 2017: U.S. BLAMES ASSAD FOR ‘HINDERING’ ITS ANTI-ISIS EFFORTS

On October 18, the Republican Guard’s Gen Issam Zahreddine was killed in an IED explosion during the operation against ISIS in Saqr Island northeast of Deir Ezzor city. Zahreddine was one of the most prominent Syrian generals and a hero of the battle for Deir Ezzor. He had been leading government troops defending the city from ISIS terrorists over the past years. Under his command, local government troops kept control over the military airbase and a part of the urban area until the unblocking force reached the city and broke the ISIS siege in September 2017.

On the same day, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee accused the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance of hindering efforts of the US-led coalition against ISIS during the battle for Raqqa city.

How the EU mocks the victims of Israel’s crimes

On Wednesday morning, Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian-owned building in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina.

As usual, the pretext was that the owners had failed to obtain a permit – something the occupation municipality almost never grants to Palestinians.

A day earlier, nine Palestinians were made homeless when Israeli forces demolished two houses in the Silwan neighborhood, using the same pretext.

The Palestinian online publication Quds tweeted this video of the demolition in progress:

Israeli army raids media outlets across West Bank

Israeli forces raided and shut down several Palestinian broadcast companies in the occupied West Bank before dawn on Wednesday.

Eight branch offices belonging to three media companies – PalMedia, Ram Sat and Trans Media – were sealed and two media workers were arrested, according to Addameer, a Palestinian human rights group.

The raided offices, located in the cities of Nablus, Bethlehem, Ramallah and Hebron, were welded shut with notices posted by the Israeli military ordering them closed for six months due to having engaged in “incitement.”

Video: Soldiers shoot Palestinian running across a road

Witnesses told a Palestinian media outlet that the man was attempting to catch a bus when he was shot.

The security camera footage shows a figure running across a road before he is shot and falls to the ground.

The army claimed that the man, who had not yet been identified at the time of publication, was armed with a knife and was running towards soldiers when he was shot.

But he was not near any other person, and does not appear to pose an immediate threat to anyone’s life at the time that he is shot. It is not apparent from the video that he was carrying a knife or attempting any attack when he was wounded.

Russia urges US to destroy chemical weapons

After destroying the remainder of its chemical weapons in September, Russia is now calling on the United States and other countries in possession of such weapons to immediately “follow suit” and do away with their stockpiles.

Speaking at a meeting of the First Committee of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, Deputy Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control Vladimir Yermakov blasted the US for undermining the international treaties banning chemical weapons.

“We call on all other countries still possessing chemical weapons to follow Russia’s lead without delay,” he said. “That concerns, first and foremost, the country that initiated the convention, which has always been the most active proponent of its ideas when it came to other countries and now, for some reason, it continues to be the largest possessor of chemical weapons."

Israeli Settlers Filmed Stealing Olive Harvest of West Bank Palestinian FarmersThe police detained and then released all the suspects

Israel Police detained four settlers over the past week on suspicion of involvement in stealing olives from Palestinian farmers' groves in the northern West Bank, but all of them were released. An NGO provided documentation that shows settlers in the act and throwing rocks, and Palestinian farmers claimed that settlers stole from and vandalized hundreds of trees.

According to the Palestinians, the thefts and vandalism occurred mainly on Palestinian land near settlements that the Palestinian can only reach by coordinating ahead of time with the the Israeli military.

It takes real b*stards to do this, and yet believe they have the moral high ground in these acts of destructive vandalism.

U.S. Pushes For Quick UN Vote On Syrian Gas-Attack Inspections, Defying Russia

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on October 18 that she was circulating a resolution that would extend by another year the work of the Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM), and she called for a vote on the extension before a scheduled October 26 report by the group on who is responsible for an April 4 sarin-gas attack on Khan Sheikhun that killed nearly 90 people.

Haley said that "there's overwhelming support" on the council for her proposed extension of the JIM's inspection mandate, which expires in mid-November, but she expects Russia to object to any rushed vote.

Russian Ambassador Mikhail Ulyanov, who heads the country's delegation to the UN General Assembly's disarmament committee, said last week that Russia wanted to wait to see the report on the Khan Sheikhun attack before deciding whether to extend the inspectors' mandate.

Norwegian Firm Signs $2.9bn Solar Deal with Iran

Norway’s Saga Energy has signed a 2.5 billion-euro ($2.94 billion) deal to build solar power plants in Iran, the company said.

The deal would see the construction over a four- to five-year period of 2 gigawatts of power generation capacity, Saga Energy spokesman Rune Haaland said, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

The company will rely on banks, pension funds and Norwegian state export guarantees to fund the plan, and aims to recoup its investment through a 25-year deal on electricity prices, he added.

How Netanyahu Pulls Trump’s Strings

Over the summer, Trump listened to advice about a possible major overhaul of U.S. foreign policy that would have checked Israeli/Saudi regional ambitions, opened diplomatic doors to Iran, and addressed the Korean crisis by brokering negotiations between the North and the South over some form of loose confederation.

There was even the possibility of a Nixon-goes-to-China moment with tough-guy Trump meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the two countries restoring diplomatic ties, a process that could have given U.S. companies a better chance to compete in the Iranian market.

Those proposed moves had the advantage of reducing international tensions, saving the U.S. government money on future military adventures, and freeing U.S. corporations from the tangle of economic sanctions – exactly the “America First” strategy that Trump had promised his working-class base.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The level of absolute betrayal that I, and much of his base, felt at President Trump's martial rantings at the UN, threatening both North Korea and Iran with war and extinction, is so intense as to be absolutely unconveyable.

So I am hoping that some folks in the White House, Pentagon, State Department and Congress are asking themselves, quite seriously: is the US government actually prepared to go to war with both Iran and Russia, egged on by the Israeli cheerleaded in chief Netanyahu, when it is a dead moral certainty that the costs will be borne only in American blood, and with American money?!?

I would hope that a measured, collective answer to that question is, HELL, NO!!

But then again, I do not know what kind of Svengali hold Netanyahu has over President Trump, in terms of intel or background to which the American public is not privy.

Unfortunately, just because an action on the part of the US government could be the most ham-fistely, pig-headedly stupid thing it could do, is no guarantee that it will not do it.

And do take note; there have been absolutely no missile tests by North Korea over this last week of intense military exercises between South Korea and the US military off the Korean peninsula. Even though North Korea's Ambassador to the UN made the following statement on 16 October "Nuclear War May Break Out at Any Moment, these exercises are due to end tomorrow, and yet North Korea has not carried out its threats.

38north.org, an organisation under the auspices of John Hopins University, which studies North Korean actions by analyzing satellite imagery, has made no mentions of any movements of missiles to their testing site as of yesterday, 18 October, and this is my "canary in the coal mine" resource when it comes to North Korean military activity.

I doubt that this will ever happen in my lifetime, but what this country desperately needs right now, is a Department of Peace, to counter the warmongers in our government, and create options for resolving this country's geopolitical issues through intelligent, moral, hard-won negotiations, rather than through war.

Strangely enough, Vanuatu proves why Bitcoin can never be banned

Vanuatu is one of several nations that offers citizenship to foreigners in exchange for making an ‘investment’ in the country.

Malta. Cyprus. Saint Kitts & Nevis. Etc. These countries all offer what are known as ‘citizenship by investment’ programs.

(And dozens of countries, including the United States, offer ‘residency by investment’ programs, where foreigners receive legal residency in exchange for an investment.)

As I’ve written before, however, sometimes these programs would be more accurately described as ‘citizenship-by-donation’.

Because, in many cases, you’re not really making an investment. You’re just writing a big check to the government.

USA will perish if China turns to European Union

"I believe that all those American sanctions against Russia do not actually target Russia, even though it may sound strange. Let's assume that all the sanctions that were allegedly imposed on Russia under the pretexts of the Crimea and the Donbass, are primarily aimed against the European Union and the countries that cooperate with it closely. Those sanctions are important for the Americans. First of all, it is the EU that poses the biggest potential threat for the United States within the scope of the current production system, when the design bureau is in the United States of America, and the factory is in the People's Republic of China. If the Chinese switch to cooperation with European developers, the Americans will have to pay the full price for what they receive from China. Today, the Americans receive royalties from the Chinese for the right to produce what the Americans develop, and these royalties cover almost the entire cost of Chinese supplies to the United States.

Saudi Airstrike Kills Six Civilians, Mostly Children, in North Yemen: One Child Survived, But Critically Wounded in Home's Destruction

The latest in a long line of disastrous airstrikes by Saudi warplanes across Yemen, officials reported an airstrike on Tuesday night in the northern Jawf Province, destroying a single civilian home, killing six civilians and critically wounded another.

The civilians killed were an entire family. The slain included the parents and four of their daughters. The lone survivor, who was injured, was their only son. Saudi officials gave no indication why the house was destroyed.

Locals in the district, however, reported that the house was directly targeted twice, initially hit with airstrikes that destroyed the building, and then minutes later as rescue workers got close to the site. Officials say no rescue workers were injured, as they had yet to reach the wreckage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The assassinations of women and children seems to be a major specialty of the US-enabled Saudi military in Yemen.

Mr. President, I do not know what your Unholy Triumverate of Kelly, Mattis, and McMaster are telling you about these murders of innocents, coupled with the massive deaths from malnutrition, due to US-assisted Yemeni port blockades, and the deaths from (potentially weaponised) cholera, but the US government and military, under your watch, have been colluding in Saudi war crimes in Yemen; there is no "nice" way to say this, sir.

The government of my country is guilty of war crimes, period, end of discussion; and Mr. President, as an American who supported your candidacy over that of Clinton in the last election, I am profoundly morally uncomfortable with your choices here.

Yes, those weapons manufacturers who have been selling bombs to the Saudis have made a "killing", both literally and figuratively; but at what cost to the soul of this nation, sir?!?

That is a question I have to ask, and respectfully request that you answer.

And one more thing, President Trump; your newest BFF, Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, has many honorifics, which go with his position in the Royal House of Saud; however, there is one title which is going to follow him, and curse him to his grave and beyond; that of the Butcher of Yemen.

Major companies and foreign tourists leave Catalonia, but Russian tourists flow in

Consequences of the mass exodus of businesses from Catalonia after the referendum, which took place on October 1, may turn out to be disastrous for the region. Many banks have already decided to leave the region fearing that it may exit Spain indeed. The main reason is political, economic and financial instability, as well as the "unclear future" of Catalonia. If Catalonia leaves Spain and, accordingly, the European Union, companies will be cut off from their traditional markets by customs barriers - not only from the market of Spain and markets of other EU countries, but also from the countries that maintain beneficial trade agreements with the EU. Reportedly, 540 banks and firms have already changed their legal and tax addresses in Catalonia to other regions of Spain. Other Catalan companies have done this even earlier, whereas many others are going to do the same in the near future.

Spain and Catalonia set for showdown over independence bid

Catalonia is facing an unprecedented move by Madrid to seek a suspension of the region's autonomy this morning, unless separatist leader Carles Puigdemont abandons his bid for independence

Mr Puigdemont, who sparked Spain's worst political crisis in decades by holding a banned independence referendum on October 1, has been ordered by Madrid to say by 10.00 am (9am BST) whether or not he is unilaterally declaring a split from Spain.

The government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy says it will trigger Article 155 of Spain's constitution - a measure that would allow it to start imposing direct rule over semi-autonomous Catalonia - unless Mr Puigdemont backs down.

The NATIONAL REVIEW: Biden Is Right and Kasich Is Wrong on Campus Free Speech

Who wants to live in a country where the government gets to decide what kind of speech is and is not
okay?

During a “Bridging the Divides” forum at the University of Delaware on Tuesday, former vice president Joe Biden and Ohio governor John Kasich were asked about free speech on college campuses — and Biden had the far better answer.

“Liberals have a short memory . . . we hurt ourselves badly when we don’t allow speech to take place,” Biden said, according to a tweet from former CNN reporter Peter Hamby. “You should be able to listen to another point of view, as virulent as it may be, and reject it or expose it.”

Kasich’s answer? That he wouldn’t “let one of these hate speech speakers come.”>>>

(*The NR is slipping . Kasich's answer was the correct , conservative answer . All liberals are hate speakers , starting with JFK's Communist Manifesto of American President's Addresses , when he defied The Constitution and declared "Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You . Ask What You Can Do For Your Country"
Without an Opt Out option for retardlicans , that was Flat Out Hate Speech !

Photographer flies over North Korea, takes fascinating pictures of Pyongyang

Aram Pan, a photographer from Singapore, had a rare opportunity to fly above the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, DPRK, commonly known as North Korea, and take bird's eye view photos and videos of one of the most secluded capitals in the world. Pan received the permission for filming in May of this year. According to him, this is an incredibly rare case when a foreigner was allowed to shoot one of the most isolated capitals of the world. The photographer flew over the city on a super-light single-engine airplane. He saw an incredible landscape with some bizarre buildings that would be look very good in a science fiction film. Aram Pan used both a conventional camera and a 360° action camera. The photographer said that he first visited North Korea in August 2013. He was fascinated by Pyongyang. The Singaporean decided to show other people what he saw and what inspired him so much. Pan also said that the North Koreans are very proud of their capital.

ISIS in Afghanistan is US tool to cause trouble in whole region – ex-Afghan President Karzai to RT

The US uses the Islamic State insurgency as a tool in Afghanistan, aimed at destabilizing the whole region, the former Afghan president told RT, urging the international community to convince the US that it needs to actually fight terrorism.

No action was taken against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists despite their atrocious acts being well known “since the arrival of Daesh [an Arabic acronym for IS] on the Afghan scene,” former President Hamid Karzai said. He then mentioned reports of “unmarked foreign helicopters” providing support to the terrorists.

From the two years onwards to today, every day the local people, the local elders, government officials, media and others began to report that unmarked helicopters, unmarked foreign helicopters, would go in and support extremists in all parts of the country,” the former president told RT on the sidelines of the Valdai Forum in Sochi, Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Karzai is saying is making absolute sense; let's take a look at Afganistan on a map, and see what other countries it borders:

Map of Afghanistan with surrounding countries

Note that it borders Iran; Pakistan; Tajikistan; Turkmenistan; and Western China, where the suppressed and restive Muslim Urigurs are already annoyed with their Beijing masters.

ISIS has already been moved into the Phillipines in an attempt to undermine Duterte; do you believe, for one milisecond, that those Deep Staters in the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika wouldn't us it to destabilize any one of the surrounding countries, particularly Iran?!?

I sure wouldn't bet against it.

Angered Pyongyang says nuclear war can start any moment

The DPRK supports the idea of the complete ban on nuclear weapons, but the country plans to maintain its nuclear arsenal for as long as the United States has one of its own too, the North Korean official said. "The situation on the Korean Peninsula has reached a critical point, and a nuclear war may begin at any moment," the North Korean official said. According to him, no other country has ever been subjected to such an extreme and direct nuclear threat from the United States, and in this situation, Pyongyang has a full right to self-defense. "The entire continental part of the United States lies within the reach of our firepower, and if the US dares to invade our sacred territory for at least one inch, it will not escape the brutal punishment in any part of the world," the statement says. The United States deployed nuclear weapons in South Korea in 1957 and has been conducting large-scale military exercises involving the use of strategic weapons for the past 40 year.

Putin signs decree to impose extensive sanctions on North Korea

On October 16, 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to impose sanctions on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea). Putin signed the decree in accordance with Resolution 2321 of the UN Security Council from November 30, 2016. In accordance with the resolution, additional international sanctions have been imposed to curtail the development and supplies of resources for prohibited programs of the DPRK. The sanctions have limited the cooperation with North Korea in the military-technical, trade-economic, financial, transport and educational spheres. Russia has thus suspended defense cooperation with persons and groups of persons representing the DPRK. At the same time, cooperation in the field of nuclear science and technology, aerospace engineering and aviation technology or advanced production technologies shall be allowed only if it does not contribute to the development of Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.

EU leaders to call for end to North Korea's weapons program: draft

European Union leaders will demand on Thursday that North Korea end its nuclear and ballistic weapons program, according to the draft final statement of an EU summit.

The statement, to be delivered after a discussion among leaders on Thursday evening, will follow the latest EU sanctions agreed on Monday by foreign ministers, which go beyond United Nations measures.

Leaders will tell Pyongyang "to abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programs in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner", the draft said.

Leaders will also say they are ready to consider further measures, without specifying what they might be. Diplomats said they could include sanctions on non-EU countries still doing business with Pyongyang.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, good luck on that one; and to the European leaders who have contributed to this: Pyongyang will most probably abandon its nuclear program when its nuclear missles can actually reach the east coast of the United States!!

China's leadership reshuffle 2017HOME XI'S AGENDA RISING STARS APPOINTMENTS BIG PICTURE ALL ARTICLES OPINIONChina has the world’s biggest military force. Now Xi Jinping wants it to be the best

Laying out his ambitious plan for the People’s Liberation Army in a report to the Communist Party’s national congress on Wednesday, Xi said the PLA must modernise by 2035 and become a top-ranked military by 2050.

“A military force is built to fight. Our military must regard combat readiness as the goal for all its work and focus on how to win when it is called upon,” Xi said.

He said technology was at the core of combat strength and the PLA needed to apply information technology and modern warfare strategies to advance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, military, and particularly our weapons manufacturers, need to be paying attention to this.

The culture of American weapons manufacturers has become avaricous; professionally sloppy in output; and has had a consistent track record of of not delivering what our military needs, and gouging the taxpayer for it, big-time.

One of the greatest debacles in weapons manufacturing in the 21st century, has been the F-35, courtesy of Lockheed Martin, which still cannot function as advertised.

Please do not get me wrong here; as a Christian Pacifist activist, I am constantly exhorting my government to resolve its geopolitical disputes with methods other than warfare.

But when war happens, I want our military to absolutely have the best possible weapons in their arsenals; there should not be one soldier in the field who gets wounded or dies from shoddy weapons manufacturing, or shoddy "value engineering".

And toward that end, weapons manufacurers should be forbidden, as a class, from contibuting to any political candidacies, period, end of discussion; it is through those contributions that they buy their immunity, and their ability to create crud which doesn't work, is wretchedly over-priced, and is causing problems for our military's response capabilities.

the Russians and Chinese are recieving far more bang for their weapons development buck than is the US military: that has got to stop, right the heck now.

Push is on to disbar James Comey after Clinton scandal

A crusading lawyer filed a bar grievance this week accusing former FBI Director James Comey of lying to Congress and destroying potential evidence in the Clinton email scandal, in a process that could end up costing him his law license.

Ty Clevenger filed the grievance in New York, where Mr. Comey was a former U.S. attorney and is licensed to practice law.

Mr. Clevenger said Mr. Comey’s testimony to Congress that he did not predetermine the outcome of the FBI’s probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is belied by revelations this week that he in fact started drafting an exoneration months before even speaking with Mrs. Clinton.
“Insofar as Mr. Comey gave materially false testimony to Congress, it appears that he violated Rules 1.0(w), 3.3(a)(1), and 8.4 of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct,” Mr. Clevenger wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Comey may be the sacrificial lamb here; but it is Hillary Clinton who is fast becoming the "live liability."

And those in the Bowels of Power in DC in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika have a particularly vile distaste for live liabilites.

I would be reasonably sure that those in her inner circle have come up with some very reasonable suggestions about countries where she and Bill could live comfortably, with one thing in common: they have no extradition treaties with the US government.

Fusion GPS Executives Plead the Fifth on Trump Dossier at House Intelligence Hearing408

Fusion GPS executives Peter Fritsch and Thomas Catan pleaded the fifth to every single question asked during the roughly half an hour session, the source said, including to basic questions such as “Who funded the dossier?”

“They both plead the fifth to every question that was put to them,” the source said.

The committee interviewed them as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and any potential collusion with the Trump administration. Rep. Michael Conaway (R-TX), who is leading the investigation, issued the subpoenas for Fusion GPS representatives to come in, according to another source familiar with the subpoenas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I completely unsurprised at this?!?

Because the alleged "dossier" was codswallop, from beginning to end!!

Judiciary Committee calls on former FBI informant to testify about Uranium One

Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley asked the attorney of a former FBI informant Wednesday to allow her client to testify before his committee regarding the FBI's investigation regarding kickbacks and bribery by the Russian state controlled nuclear company that was approved to purchase twenty percent of United States uranium supply in 2010, Circa has learned.

In a formal letter, Grassley, an Iowa Republican, asked Victoria Toensing, the lawyer representing the former FBI informant, to allow her client, who says he worked as a voluntary informant for the FBI, to be allowed to testify about the "crucial" eyewitness testimony he provided to the FBI regarding members of the Russian subsidiary and other connected players from 2009 until the FBI's prosecution of the defendants in 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now, this businessman, understanding that their life is in extreme danger from the Clintonistas, has most probably quietly left the US for a country with which the US has no extradition treaty, and hired a private security company to protect his life.

Grassley is most probably going to get this guy to testify... when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

FBI Informant "Threatened" After Offering Details Linking Clinton Foundation To Russian Bribery Case

While the mainstream media has largely ignored it, the scandal surrounding Russian efforts to acquire 20% of America's uranium reserves, a deal which was ultimately approved by the Obama administration, and more specifically the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) which included Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder, is becoming more problematic for Democrats by the hour.

As The Hill pointed out earlier this morning, the latest development in this sordid tale revolves around a man that the FBI used as an informant back in 2009 and beyond to build a case against a Russian perpetrator who ultimately admitted to bribery, extortion and money laundering. The informant, who is so far only known as "Confidential Source 1," says that when he attempted to come forward last year with information that linked the Clinton Foundation directly to the scandal he was promptly silenced by the FBI and the Obama administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised here?!?

Threats, physical assassinations, and character assassinations are the Clintonista's primary tools of empowerment.

And trust me, I know: Mike and I barely survived through that last one with the issue of the strange "death" of Vincent Foster!

SENATE LAUNCHES PROBE INTO RUSSIAN NUCLEAR BRIBERY CASE THAT NETTED CLINTONS MILLIONS

As the media continues to lose their collective minds over $100,000 worth of Facebook ads allegedly purchased by Russians during the 2016 election, the Senate Judiciary Committee has finally decided they’re going to take a look into a shady Russian deal that handed Putin 20% of America’s uranium reserves, was approved by the Obama administration during an ongoing FBI investigation into charges of bribery, extortion and money laundering by the Russian buyer and netted the Clintons millions of dollars in donations and ‘speaking fees.” Here’s more from The Hill:

The Senate Judiciary Committee has launched a full-scale probe into a Russian nuclear bribery case, demanding several federal agencies disclose whether they knew the FBI had uncovered the corruption before the Obama administration in 2010 approved a controversial uranium deal with Moscow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Finally, as the independent press has known for quite some time, THIS is the real story about "Russian Collusion", and it has utterly NOTHING to do with President Trump!!

CITIES ARE GETTING PAID TO TURN STREET LIGHTS INTO SPYING SMARTNODES

The future of privacy in big cities is bleak, cities are now getting paid to convert street lights into spying SmartNodes.

What are SmartNodes?

SmartNodes will soon replace street lights, because they are equipped with cameras, microphones, speakers etc., all-in-one light pole.

The city of Los Angeles, Calfornia is working with Phillips Lighting and ENE-HUB to turn 110,000 street lights into a one-of-a-kind citywide SmartNode surveillance network.

“The Los Angeles Bureau of Street Lighting and Philips Lighting have collaborated on a program that uses CityTouch connected street lighting management and connected sensors to obtain additional value from the public lighting system.”

Phillips SmartPoles are equipped with ‘environmental noise monitoring’ microphones. Phillips microphones are designed to spy on ‘raucous neighbors and loud music’.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would almost be willing to bet that the concept of privacy, as we used to understand it, will be completely gone, even inside the home, within the next 5 years.

Oil Firm Sees Vote on Iran Deal as Potential Positive

President Trump sees his decertification of the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran as part of a broad increase in US hostility toward the country. The decertification obliges Congress to vote on the deal, however, and that might have a silver lining.

That’s the hope of Total S.A. CEO Patrick Pouyanne. His company is trying to make a $5 billion deal to improve South Pars gas field with Iran, and he believes it is both likely that the Senate will vote to save the deal, and that the vote would provide clarification on America’s participation

DNA feat could boost star forestry species

*What they don't say is that Scion is involved heavily in GE research growing GE pines.*

A world-first DNA feat by New Zealand scientists could boost the way we grow the star species of our plantation forests.

By completing a draft assembly of the radiata pine's genetic make-up, or genome, researchers at Crown research institute Scion have opened the door to a new era of precision forestry for the critically important species.

The genome assembly began in 2013 and was completed last month, using the Rotorua-based institute's newly acquired high-capacity computer server - the largest of its kind undertaking genomics work in New Zealand.

The official announcement on the completion of the genome assembly was made at the Forest Growers Research Conference in Christchurch this week.

Kiwi scientist helps tackle elusive 'Element 118'

A top Kiwi scientist has helped characterise an intriguing and relatively new chemical element, which had proven a headache to study.

First synthesised as a single atom in 2002 at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Russia, oganesson, or Og, is the only noble gas which doesn't naturally occur and must be synthesised in experiments.

Widely known as Element 118, Og is also one of only two elements to be named after a living scientist, nuclear physicist Yuri Oganessian.

However, studying one of the heaviest elements with the highest atomic number to ever be synthesised - 118 - has been no easy task.

Oganesson is radioactive and extremely unstable with a half-life of less than a millisecond, making it impossible to examine by chemical methods.

This meant computing its electronic structure is the next best thing, which was in itself a formidable task.

Rare Handel manuscript to be used for performance in Katikati (NZ)

A rare publication of a manuscript of the famous Messiah by composer George Frederick Handel that dates back to the 1700s has been discovered in the Bay of Plenty.

It is believed to be one of only four copies in the world.

The 233-year-old manuscript, printed from an etching on copper plate, is a reduction of the score of the Messiah for voice, harpsichord and violin. It is owned by Colin and Stephanie Smith of Tauranga.

The Western Bay Museum in Katikati will host a performance of excerpts from the 1784 Messiah manuscript by soloists from the University of Waikato in November. During the performance the manuscript will be on display for the first time in the southern hemisphere.

Mr Smith said the manuscript was in a pile of unsorted music offered as part of a house lot from the estate of a person in Christchurch some 40 years ago. He didn't sort the music until 10 or 12 years ago when he discovered the Handel manuscript about half-way down the pile.
