"If all bank loans were paid, no one would have a bank deposit, and there would not be a dollar of currency or coin in circulation. This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money, we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent monetary system. When one gets a complete grasp upon the picture, the tragedy and absurdity of our hopeless position is almost incredible -- but here it is. It (the banking system) is the most important object intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it is widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." -- Robert Hemphill, for 8 years credit manager of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

Napolitano: Did Donald Trump Change His Mind on Domestic Spying?

Last week, I made an impassioned plea on Fox News Channel directly to the president. I reminded him that he personally has been victimized by unlawful surveillance and the political use of sensitive surveillance-captured data; that the Constitution requires warrants for surveillance and they must specifically describe the place to be searched and the person or thing to be seized; that warrants must be based on probable cause of individual behavior, not an area code or customer list; that the purpose of these requirements is to preserve personal privacy and prohibit bulk surveillance; and that he took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.

About an hour later, the president issued a tweet blasting bulk surveillance and unmasking. Two hours after that, he issued another tweet supporting the enactment of the FISA amendments.

What’s going on here?

I suspect that leaders in the intelligence community hurriedly convinced the president that if he sets aside his personal unhappy experiences with them and any constitutional qualms, they will use the carte blanche in the FISA amendments to keep us safe. This is a sad state of affairs. It means that Donald Trump changed his mind 180 degrees on the primacy of personal liberty in our once-free society.

Three scenarios of new super sanctions against Russia published

The head of the Russian Finance Ministry, Anton Siluanov, said that the Americans would suffer additional losses if they impose sanctions on Russia's public debt. Analysts expect that Washington will opt for a moderate version of sanctions against Russia. According to Siluanov, foreign investors will be the first to suffer from the imposition of sanctions against the Russian public debt. Should the purchase of Russian government bonds be banned, foreign buyers of the Russian public debt, who have invested $25 billion in federal bonds in the last two years, will lose their revenues. According to Alor Broker analysts, one may consider "positive," "moderate" and "negative" development. In the first case, sanctions will be expanded solely by including new individuals and entities on sanctioned lists. This option will not entail restrictions on federal bonds deals in February.

However, Warren County ordered the Yoder’s connect to the municipal utilities “without further delay,” an act that the Yoder’s have fought the city over because connecting to the public line requires them to also install an electric grinder pump, a device that directs waste away from their home.

Ann Curry: ‘Climate’ of Sexual Harassment ‘Pervasive’ at NBC News

Former Today Show co-host Ann Curry dropped the bombshell Wednesday with the admission that there was a “climate” of sexual harassment during her years at NBC News. She agreed that this climate of sexual harassment was “pervasive,” and ended her answer with a definitive “Yes. Period.”

Curry also volunteered that she “is not surprised by the allegations” against her former co-host Matt Lauer, who was fired in November over multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. The pertinent portions of the transcript are below.

As of now, a total of NINE employees at NBC who stand accused of some sort of misconduct. Along with Lauer, there is Hardball host Chris Matthews (still employed) , Mark Halperin (fired), sports anchor Mike Tirico (new hire, despite the allegations), Larry Gaetano (fired executive), Harold Ford Jr. (suspended), Matt Zimmerman (fired executive), Alec Baldwin (still employed), and David Corn (suspended).

Michael Wolff’s ‘Fire and Fury’ to Become TV Series Despite Accuracy Concerns

According to the report, Endeavor Content has bought the rights to the best-selling book for a seven-figure fee — the largest deal in the company’s history — and will soon look for a network to help produce the show. Wolff will serve as an executive producer for the series, alongside longtime Channel 4 and BBC executive Michael Jackson.

The book, which went out earlier this month ahead of its planned release, sent shockwaves across the political world over a number of incendiary claims it makes about the first year of the Trump presidency.

However, the accuracy of many of the claims has been widely disputed, with Wolff admitting early on that “looseness with the truth” is an “elemental thread of the book.”

USA to crush Russia's space industry in 2019

Journalist Matthew Bodner suggested in his column for Space News that Russia's state-run space corporation Roscosmos could find itself in a very difficult financial situation if the US refuses to buy both seats on manned Soyuz spaceships and engines for Atlas 5 rockets from Russia. The author refers to Russian analyst Pavel Luzin, who claimed that about 50 percent of the budget of Roscosmos for the Federal Space Program for 2016-2025 (1.4 trillion rubles or $24 billion) is devoted to manned programs. In 2018, the cost of one ticket to space for a US astronaut on board the Soyuz spaceship will grow to $81 million. Thus, every American astronaut contributes up to five percent of Roscosmos annual budget, Luzin assumed. In 2019, NASA plans to stop buying seats on Soyuz. However, Bodner wrote, Russian officials do not seem to care much about the impending crisis.

Brigitte Bardot accuses Hollywood actresses of hypocrisy

French film star Brigitte Bardot accused Hollywood actresses, who declared themselves victims of sexual violence and harassment, of hypocrisy. Most of those statements are simply ridiculous, Bardot said. Bardot stressed that Hollywood actresses seduce producers themselves to get desired roles, "and then, to be talked about, they announce that they were harassed." "In reality, it hurts them much more than it helps them," she said. "It seemed pleasant to me when I was told I was beautiful, or that I had a nice little butt. Such compliments are pleasant," the 83-year-old film legend said. Earlier in January, Catherine Deneuve, another outstanding French actress, and 99 other famous French women stood up in defense of men who had fallen victims of witch hunt because of their desire to flirt with women. During the 1950s, Brigitte Bardot was declared a sex symbol of Europe; she was comparable to Marilyn Monroe in the USA.

As Congress and the Trump administration turn their attention toward entitlement reform, they should focus on innovation and incentives. The last time there was meaningful reform was in 1996 when Congress passed the bipartisan Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PWORA).

Kelly: Trump Wants Chain Migration Limited to Nuclear Family, About $20 Billion for Wall Funding for DACA Deal

Anchor Bret Baier asked Kelly, “What does the president need to see on chain migration to bless a DACA deal?”

Kelly answered, “The president sees that we should control that — nuclear family, that people that qualify to come into the United States as immigrants, if they’re married, of course, their wife will come in. If they have minor children, the minor children will come in. But not the parents, not the extended families. So, that’s where he is right now.

WADA doping kits broke during opening at Rio 2016 – Fancy Bears leak

Doping sample bottles used by the World Anti-Doping Agency at the Rio 2016 Olympics had a tendency to break when opened, a fresh batch of leaked emails, obtained by RT via the Fancy Bears hacking group, revealed.
The Rio doping laboratory head, Francisco Radler de Aquino Neto, described a “weird situation” with the kits produced by Swiss company, Berlinger, in a July 2016 letter obtained by the hackers.

“The Rio2016 [sic] Berlinger bottles seem not all to be standard and did not fit in the Berlinger openers. Forcing them resulted in breakage of the cap and sometimes it cannot [sic] be used to close the A bottle after aliquoting, e.g., photos in annex. Does Berlinger has a record of this kind of non-conformity?” The answer, if any was given, has not been revealed.

Man sentenced for supplying at least 18 pounds of meth to former Montana legislator from Billings

A California man who supplied former Montana Republican House Majority Leader Michael David Lange of Billings with at least 18 pounds and possibly up to 50 pounds of nearly pure meth in a large conspiracy will spend 12 years in federal prison.

In sentencing Jose Soltero, 44, of Lake Elsinore, California, on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Susan Watters said it was “hard to fathom the devastation” caused by 18 pounds of meth being dumped into the community and that Soltero was “more than just a middleman” in the conspiracy.

Still, Watters gave Soltero a break from the 19 to 24 years he faced under the guideline range, finding credible his explanation for getting involved was because he and his family were being threatened.

Olympic Détente Upends U.S. Strategy on North Korea

North and South Korea reached an agreement Wednesday for their athletes to march together under one flag at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics next month, a powerful gesture of reconciliation that further complicates President Trump’s strategy for dealing with the nuclear-armed regime of Kim Jong-un.

South Korea, the host of the games, said it hoped a partnership in sports could contribute to a political thaw after years of high tensions on the Korean Peninsula. It came even as the prospect of war over the North’s nuclear and ballistic missile tests has loomed large.

For the White House, however, the budding détente scrambles its strategy of pressuring the North, with sanctions and threats of military action, to give up its nuclear arsenal. This latest gesture of unity, the most dramatic in a decade, could add to fears in Washington that Pyongyang is making progress on a more far-reaching agenda.

Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: study

Earth's surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions.

A revised calculation of how greenhouse gases drive up the planet's temperature reduces the range of possible end-of-century outcomes by more than half, researchers said in the report, published in the journal Nature.

"Our study all but rules out very low and very high climate sensitivities," said lead author Peter Cox, a professor at the University of Exeter.

How effectively the world slashes CO2 and methane emissions, improves energy efficiency, and develops technologies to remove CO2 from the air will determine whether climate change remains manageable or unleashes a maelstrom of human misery.

Many thanks to Bob Dylan's great song of the same name. What rankles me is how so many of my friends, neighbors and acquaintances seem to accept how far down the rabbit hole our Amerikan society has fallen. We live under the broken umbrella of an empire that cares not to protect the overwhelming majority of us. We live under the auspices of a regime that spends half or our hard earned tax dollars on phony wars, illegal foreign occupations and excessive militarism at home. Yet, most of the lemmings I cohabit with are only concerned about tripe news on sexual scandals and other base events that have nothing to do with their health or financial well being. For every person who can profit from this insane stock market run up, there are a thousand times more folks who are lucky to afford the bare necessities of life. Many of us, even we who earn more than the median income level, still walk around with missing teeth, knees and necks in need of operative repair and so on.

‘Very possible’ that N. Korea crisis can’t be resolved peacefully – Trump

It's “very possible” the standoff with North Korea might not be resolved peacefully, Donald Trump has said in an exclusive interview with Reuters, and he's not sure if the inter-Korean dialogue will lead to “anything meaningful.”

“I’d sit down, but I‘m not sure that sitting down will solve the problem,” Trump said.

“I am not sure that talks will lead to anything meaningful” since they have been going on for 25 years now.

The remarks come after Trump’s statement earlier in January, in which he said he is “absolutely” willing to talk on the phone to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un if certain conditions are met.

And while the thaw in relations was welcomed by Seoul, the recent rapprochement was greeted with skepticism by 20 foreign ministers of the so-called "Vancouver Group," which defended South Korea during the Korean War more than five decades ago.

A Novel of Machiavelli and the Borgias.

Sarah Dunant continues her narrative on the campaigns of the Borgia pope, Alexander VI, to carve out a family possession in Italy. Florence is hanging on to its Republican status, having booted out the Medici in 1494, while, elsewhere, old noble families are knocked aside by the mercenaries they had depended upon. One of them, Vitellozzo Vitelli, is driven by revenge for Florence’s execution of his brother, siding with and then double-crossing the pope’s eldest son, Cesare Borgia, the novel’s central character. Vitelli is garroted for his pains. The Borgias have little regard for the Italian nobles who dominate the peninsula. As outsiders, they can afford to be circumspect, playing the Italians at their own superficial game. Pius III, who briefly succeeded Alexander VI as pope in 1503, came from a bankrupt Sienese family, whose founder, Pius II, referred to the Medici rulers of Florence as ‘more cultured than merchants usually are’.

In one of the first high-profile attempts to block the FCC’s rollback of net neutrality rules through the courts, 22 state attorneys general have filed a lawsuit challenging the plan.

Led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, the petition asks a court to find that the FCC’s plan runs afoul of federal law.

“An open internet — and the free exchange of ideas it allows – is critical to our democratic process,” Schneiderman said in a statement announcing the suit. “The repeal of net neutrality would turn internet service providers into gatekeepers – allowing them to put profits over consumers while controlling what we see, what we do, and what we say online.”

Unless you’re totally committed to the flu hysteria, it makes s lot of sense to question the flu vaccine narrative.

Which is apparently how President Trump feels.

In a 2015 interview with Sirius XM’s Opie and Jim Norton, Donald Trump was asked if gets a flu shot. His response was informed by a common experience: after once getting the flu shot, he got more sick than ever, then vowed never to do it again.

The Unhealthiest State in America Has the Best Vaccination Rate: Offit’s Orwellian Logic Fails to Connect the Dots

In a Daily Beast opinion piece on December 15, Paul Offit—one of the vaccine industry’s most strident ambassadors—puzzles over a seeming contradiction. How, Offit wonders, could the state of Mississippi, which has “the worst overall health in the nation,” have used standout “efficiency” to achieve over 99.4% vaccine coverage in kindergartners? Rather than seriously investigate this apparent enigma, Offit presents his ready-made answer and reveals his article’s true purpose. According to Paul Offit, Mississippi’s high vaccination rates are due to the state’s 1979 decision to make the government—rather than parents—the primary vaccine decision-maker for children.
