Report: Ivanka Trump Already Planning Post-Washington Life

Ivanka and Kushner were once very active in President Trump’s day-to-day decision-making. However, now that John Kelly is White House Chief-of-Staff, Trump’s eldest daughter and son-in-law have been relegated to more of an advocacy role, doing things like hosting dinners, speaking with supporters, and meeting with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in an effort to further Trump’s agenda. To be sure, those are important things – but Ivanka and Kushner are no longer members of the administrative inner circle like they used to be.

Furthermore, the pair have been meeting with some of the country’s top executives regarding job programs, private partnerships, and infrastructure, suggesting that they’re already planning for the future. What those plans are, of course, remain to be seen – but at least one person seems to think Ivanka is planning to follow in her father’s political footsteps.

A Tactical Analysis Of The Las Vegas Mass Shooting Incident

I set aside some time for more details of the Vegas shooting to emerge before writing this article. A few important data points have been released, but I have to say that this remains one of the most confusing terror incidents in decades.

The tactical and strategic thought applied in this attack denotes a sophisticated and experienced shooter, yet, we are told by Stephen Paddock’s family and girlfriend that there was no indication that he had such knowledge or experience. There were some advanced tactical decisions involved in every aspect of the staging of the event, yet, there were also a few glaring mistakes that do not fit. Beyond this, there is evidence that Paddock (the alleged shooter) did not act alone, yet, the official mainstream narrative continues to tell us that he was a lone wolf.

US Army Shifts Focus to Fighting Technologically Advanced Near-Peer Foes

After nearly 20 years of combat operations in South Asia and the Middle East, the Pentagon has updated its fighting manual in the event that the US goes to war with a large military boasting high-tech capabilities like the ones featured in the US arsenal, Stars and Stripes reports.
The new manual, called "[Field Manual] 3-0 Operations" is intended to prepare US warfighters for confronting opponents with drones, cyber-attack abilities and sophisticated conventional equipment such as tanks and artillery, the newspaper said.

Iran's ‘various scenarios’ awaiting Trump’s JCPOA move

Iran is considering “various scenarios” in response to US President Donald Trump’s “probable withdrawal” from the international nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers.

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi made the remarks on Wednesday following a meeting with UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in London.

Iran has “prepared itself for various scenarios,” and will undoubtedly deliver a proper response, Salehi stated.

Trump’s administration, which took over a year after the nuclear agreement had come into force, has repeatedly attacked the agreement and desperately sought a pretext to scrap or weaken the deal.

While the Trump administration has twice certified Iranian compliance with the deal in notifications to the US Congress under an American law, the White House has indicated that a third verification — due later this week — would not be offered.

Harvey Weinstein faces possible rape and assault charges as NYPD launches investigation into college student's claim that he forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004

Lucia Evans (nee Stoller) told The New Yorker that the summer before her senior year, Weinstein met her at a club and asked her to come in for a meeting at his office.

Soon after she arrived, she claims that Weinstein took of his pants and shoved her face into his crotch, overpowering her until she acquiesced to his demands.

Harvey's f**k you to the world: Defiant Weinstein surfaces in LA with his middle fingers high after threatening suicide to his daughter and whining he has been abandoned by his friends as he finally heads to rehab in Arizona

A defiant Harvey Weinstein was pictured giving a huge 'f*** you' to the world on Wednesday, hours before he headed to rehab believed to be in Arizona.

The embattled movie mogul looked bedraggled as he entered the offices of his lawyer Patty Glasser flanked by stern-faced and suited male members of his entourage.

As he walked in through the doors, the disgraced 65-year-old flipped the bird, appearing unrepentant in the face of a slew of shocking allegations of rape and sexual assault from at least 30 Hollywood actresses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will admit it; after the way I got treated by Hollywood over the Vince Foster murder I am enjoying this crash and burn and hope it spreads to every slime-ball in Hollywood! :)

When asked if someone had 'coerced' her to be there, she laughed and asked the host. 'Do you count Harvey Weinstein as a coercer?'

She added: 'I do all my movies for Harvey Weinstein, that's Miramax for all of you. And I'm lucky to do them there, but he will coerce you do a thing or two.'

NATO LAUNCHES NEW BLACK SEA FORCE TO TARGET RUSSIA

NATO has announced the launching of their multinational Black Sea Force, based in Romania, and including an entire Romanian brigade of 4,000 troops. The force is there to target Russia in the Black Sea region.

Romania insisted the deployment is “not a threat to Russia” and that the purpose of having more troops there to “target” Russia is “peace, not war.” 900 US troops were deployed to Romania to participate in this force.

Since Russia doesn’t border NATO anywhere in the Black Sea region, the force appears to be largely pointless, except for additional grandstanding about NATO’s “readiness” for a fight with “invading” Russian forces, in an invasion that’s been predicted for years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The politicians of Romania appear to be incapable of logic; why in the name of heaven would Russia want to invade Romania, and risk a war with NATO because of doing such a thing?!?

The short answer is, Putin would never do this.

This NATO naval fleet is simply another annoyance and provocation of Russia, which has done absoutely nothing to earn it.

Weinstein Co. Knew About Harvey Weinstein Payoffs Since 2015 (Report)

The Weinstein Company board, which stated on Tuesday that it was not aware of the cash settlements Harvey Weinstein had made regarding sexual harassment allegations, was alerted to the payments in 2015, according to an interview by the New York Times with lawyer David Boies.

Boies represented Harvey Weinstein in 2015 when Weinstein’s contract was up for renewal. According to the interview, Boies stated that the board was informed of three or four of the settlements Weinstein had reached.

Dumb bug of the week: Outlook staples your encrypted emails to, er, plaintext copies when sending messages

Attention anyone using Microsoft Outlook to encrypt emails. Researchers at security outfit SEC Consult have found a bug in Redmond's software that causes encrypted messages to be sent out with their unencrypted versions attached.

You read that right: if you can intercept a network connection transferring an encrypted email, you can just read off the unencrypted copy stapled to it, if the programming blunder is triggered.

The bug is activated when Outlook users use S/MIME to encrypt messages and format their emails as plain text. When sent, the software reports the memo was delivered in an encrypted form, and it appears that way in the Sent folder – but attached to the ciphered text is an easily human-readable cleartext version of the same email. This somewhat derails the use of encryption.

Climate Scientists Ignore Up To Ten Million Underwater Volcanoes

We’ve learned a lot in the last 25 years, especially when it comes to underwater volcanoes. When I began researching and writing Not by Fire but by Ice in 1991, scientists guestimated that there were 10,000 submarine volcanoes in the entire world.

Two years later, marine geophysicists discovered 1,133 previously unmapped underwater volcanoes off the coast of Easter Island.

And they were huge. (Still are.) Some of the newly-found volcanoes rose almost 1½ miles above the seafloor. Even then, their peaks remained about 1½ miles below the water’s surface. They’re packed into a relatively small area about the size of New York state.

We have no idea how many volcanoes may be lurking beneath the seas. What we do know, is that they are pumping awesome amounts of re-hot basalt – up to 1,200ºC (2,200ºF) hot – into the inky black water.

Rejecting Sonos' private data slurp basically bricks bloke's boombox

"I'm deeply disappointed at their arrogance that they feel free to cut support for those of us who won't blindly accept new contract terms whenever they see fit," he said. "Whether I'm happy with the new terms or not is irrelevant to this issue. I might have considered accepting them had they not been forced in this way."

Dave also expressed concern that Sonos feels it's acceptable to keep personal data unnecessarily.

"Most of all, as a fairly senior technical person, I cannot fathom their requirement to keep my IP address on file for a device which offers no push functionality whatsoever. This is pure Big Brother at its best and needs to either be justified or stopped," our reader said. "I'd suggest that Sonos users monitor and firewall these devices in future. I'm probably going back to a traditional setup with buttons, stereo speakers, and wires. The sound was better, control better, and it still works after 20 years, without ever even needing any kind of agreement in place."

April 20, 2015, The Atlantic: “…the Washington Post made clear Saturday in an article that begins with a punch to the gut… ‘Nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000,’ the newspaper reported, adding that ‘the cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death’.”

Armed Robots Could Soon Be Seen in Ukraine Conflict

Are we on the verge of entering the age of robotic warfare?

Russian-backed troops in Ukraine could soon be facing armed ground robots in battle. Ukrainian military leaders proudly displayed their Phantom robot at the Association of the U.S. Army annual meeting in Washington, D.C. on Monday, Defense One reports. The robot is currently in an experimental phase, but reportedly could be used in combat in Ukraine as early as next year.

Depending on the terrain, the Phantom (also spelled Fantom) can be outfitted with treads like a tank or wheels. It can also be armed with anti-tank weapons, grenade launchers or machine guns.

The Phantom is also equipped with a backup microwave-communication link, which allows it to continue operating even if its connection with the operator has been jammed or hacked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this article telegraphing that the Government of the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of America will be at war with Russia in Ukraine the biginning of next year?!?

FENTANYL MAKER DONATES BIG TO CAMPAIGN OPPOSING POT LEGALIZATION

An embattled pharmaceutical company that sells the powerful painkiller fentanyl has donated $500,000 toward defeating a ballot initiative that would make recreational use of marijuana legal under Arizona law.

It’s hard to imagine a more sinister donor than Insys Therapeutics Inc. in the eyes of pot legalization proponents, who long have claimed drug companies want to keep cannabis illegal to corner the market for drugs, some addictive and dangerous, that relieve pain and other symptoms.

Insys currently markets just one product, according to an August filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission: a sublingual fentanyl spray it calls Subsys.

Two former company employees pleaded not guilty last month to federal charges related to an alleged kickback scheme to get doctors to prescribe Subsys.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

this is a consistent pattern, courtesy of oipioid manufacturers, to keep healthier pain-reducing products not available from public consumption, while pushing their own products which are both gravely addictive, and potentially lethal.

Trump may be dangerously overconfident in US missile defences against North Korea

President Donald Trump gave an interview to Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday night where he discussed the North Korean crisis and perhaps a dangerous overconfidence in US missile defences.

Asked about the threat North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs pose to the US, Trump said the issue should have been handled in previous administrations, and praised China for its cooperation with a US-led sanctions push against Pyongyang.

But Trump also seemed to put faith in a not-so-reliable element the US’s defence against North Korea.

“We build the greatest military equipment in the world,” Trump told Hannity. “We have missiles that can knock out a missile in the air 97 per cent of the time, and if you send two of them, it’s going to get knocked out.”

Twitter suspends Rose McGowan's account

Over the last week or so, rumors about movie executive Harvey Weinstein have turned into actual reports of sexual harassment and rape by The New York Times and The New Yorker. As a result of those public reports, he has been fired by the board of his own company, while many in Hollywood (and beyond) have come forward to talk more openly about incidents of sexual harassment and assault. One of the most notable voices has been that of actress Rose McGowan, who tweeted last year that her own assault has "been an open secret in Hollywood/Media & they shamed me while adulating my rapist." Tonight, Twitter temporarily pulled the plug on her account.

“We have determined this account violated the Twitter Rules, so we’ve temporarily limited some of your account features,” the message from the social media company read.

McGowan has been at the center of the Weinstein sexual assault controversy as she was among the several women named in a New York Times report that first outed the film producers behavior. Since then, McGowan has been critical of the The Weinstein Company on Twitter and other actors she said who were aware of what was going on including Ben Affleck.

9th Circuit Rules There’s No Constitutional Right to Sell Firearms. Will the Supreme Court Care?  

Does the Second Amendment protect an individual right to sell firearms to the public? No, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Tuesday in Teixeira v. County of Alameda, a landmark decision affirming the government’s constitutional authority to strictly regulate gun shops. The 9–2 ruling is a victory for gun safety advocates who feared judicial aggrandizement of the right to bear arms could invalidate myriad laws governing firearm commerce. The decision may be imperiled, however, if the plaintiffs appeal to the Supreme Court, where conservative justices are increasingly eager to expand the scope of the Second Amendment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an attempted end-run around the Second Amendment, but clearly restricting gun sales is an infringement of our right to keep and bear arms.

US Nuclear Upgrade Began Before Trump

President Trump is denying a report he has sought a massive expansion of US nuclear weapons. NBC News reported Tuesday that this summer, Trump asked top officials for a nearly tenfold increase of the US nuclear arsenal. Trump was shown a chart of the US stockpile over 70 years and he is said to have pointed to a part of the chart showing the arsenal's highest point, about 32,000 warheads in the late 1960s. Trump apparently "told his team he wanted the US to have that many now," officials said, according to NBC.

On Twitter today, Trump called the NBC report "pure fiction," but Trump is no stranger to making alarming statements about nuclear weapons.

Most Americans Say Trump Making North Korea Situation Worse

WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea’s nuclear weapons development is spooking most Americans, and two-thirds of them say President Donald Trump’s war of words with the isolated nation’s leader is making the situation worse. Less than 1 in 10 thinks Trump’s comments are making it better.
Those are the findings of a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, as tensions between the adversaries escalate and North Korea comes closer to its goal of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the continental U.S.

(*For the record , I disagree with the concept that most Americans oppose Trump , on this , or torture , or stumping the first amendment during Flag Gate . No matter what he does , he's the outsider , that makes him a victim , and most Americans feel a patriotic duty to stand by Trump , unquestionably , that if they don't , they're somehow unfit to hold their position . this is Fake NEWS! , designed to make Americans look like something their not .)

Trump Looks Set to Start Blowing Up the Iran Deal

Decertification would begin a 60-day congressional review period during which the administration may propose legislation to “strengthen” the agreement and Congress may decide to re-impose sanctions, according to The Washington Post.

If Trump pursues this strategy, he will be going against his own secretary of defense, James Mattis, who told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was in the national security interest of the U.S.

He will also be going against the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, who told the committee in a written statement last month that “The briefings I have received indicate that Iran is adhering to its JCPOA obligations.”>>>

Worst Box Office In 25 Years: Hollywood’s Problems Are Permanent & Deep

Even before this catastrophic Labor Day weekend is factored in (more on this below), the domestic 2017 box office is in hideous shape. This year is –6.3% behind 2016 and continues to fall behind 2015, 2013, and 2012.

If you figure in inflation, those numbers are even worse. For example, in 2012 the average ticket cost $7.96. Today it is almost a full dollar more at $8.89. Yeah, things are that bad and will look even worse on Tuesday.

With no apparent faith in their own product, this is the first Labor Day in 25 years where a new title has not been released on more than 1,000 screens. Over this weekend last year, the box office hauled in nearly $130 million. This year will do about a third of that.

Summer attendance is at a 25-year low.

The summer box office is down a whopping –16% compared to 2016.

Trump's Justice Department moves on Harvey Weinstein and orders FBI to open probe over fears he will 'do a Polanski'

The FBI has opened an investigation into Harvey Weinstein, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned.

DailyMail.com understands the move came at the behest of the Department of Justice, run by Donald Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which instructed the bureau to investigate the mounting allegations leveled at the movie mogul.

While it is unknown whether the DOJ order came directly from Sessions, the move is likely to be seen in a political light given Weinstein's friendship with Trump foe Hillary Clinton.

The move by the DOJ came amid rumors that Weinstein plans to head to Europe for sex rehab – leading to fears of a Roman Polanski-style situation where he dodges prosecution in the U.S.

European Central Bank made almost €8bn from Greece’s financial crisis

A written response to a request from a Greek MEP showed the bank collected €7.8 billion in interest payments between 2012-2016 on Greek sovereign bonds acquired under its Securities and Markets bond-buying program (SMP).

Grapes make chemotherapy obsolete? Combination of two powerful nutrients in wild grapes found to destroy cancer stem cells without harming healthy cells

A team of researchers at Pennsylvania State University tested the effects of grape seed extract and a polyphenol compound found in the fruit known as resveratrol. Working on the theory that nearly all cancerous tumors are fueled by cancer stem cells, they examined 52 mice who had colon cancer tumors. The animals were divided into three groups for the study, one of which was fed the combination of grape compounds. A second group was given an anti-inflammatory drug that can reduce tumors known as sulindac, while the third group stuck to a normal diet and served as the control.

In the group of mice who were fed the grape compound, the number of tumors fell by an impressive 50 percent. While a similar decrease was seen in the group taking sulindac, that group suffered gastrointestinal toxicity; those taking the grape compound did not.

Bump Stock Ban Retroactively Criminalizes Possession of Legally Acquired Products

The proposed ban on bump stocks not only applies to a wide, vague range of firearm accessories, as Christian Britschgi noted this morning. It also criminalizes mere possession of those accessories, making owners subject to fines and up to five years in prison, even if they acquired the newly prohibited items before the ban was enacted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Retroactively banning legally obtained accessories violates the ex post facto restriction of the Constitution.

President Trump threatened on Wednesday to use the federal government’s power to license television airwaves to target NBC in response to a report by the network’s news division that he contemplated a dramatic increase in the nation’s nuclear arsenal.

Israel-Iran conflict in Syria reaching point of no return

Analysis: As Tehran keeps ignoring the Israeli warnings against an Iranian expansion in the Middle East, the atmosphere created by the Trump administration against the nuclear agreement is only adding fuel to the fire.

Ex-Pentagon Advisor Reveals How CIA Killed Western Politicians During Cold War

The authors’ evidence includes the fact that the doctor who first studied Barschel’s body “had himself turned out to be a CIA double agent. This explains why the first conclusion from the results of the autopsy turned out to be incorrect.” According to the journalist, new toxicological evidence shows that the German politician was in fact murdered.
