Experts say US shale oil output growth will not bring down oil prices for long

The growth of shale oil production in the United States will not cause a prolonged decline of oil prices and does not make the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) strategy to reduce oil production pointless, according to experts interviewed by TASS. In their opinion, in the coming weeks oil will return to $55 per barrel, which is in the interests of both American and Middle Eastern producers...
Russia cuts oil production by 160,000 barrels per day by mid-March, Energy Minister Alexander Novak told reporters on Friday. Russia will maintain the oil production cut figure of 300,000 barrels a day until the agreement expires and intends to reach this level by the end of April, Novak said. "We stipulate reaching the target figure of 300,000 barrels per day. As soon as it is reached, I think it will be maintained until the end of the agreement," the minister said... http://tass.com/economy/936202

Syria Shoots Down Israeli Plane After Israel Launches Air Operation In Support Of ISIS

Four airplanes took place in the operation according to the Syrian military...

FLASHBACK - WHY DID THIS YOUNG APPLE SOFTWARE ENGINEER JUST COMMIT SUICIDE AT HIS COMPANY’S HQ?

A 25-year-old software engineer named Edward Mackowiak who worked for Apple has reportedly shot himself in the head at the company headquarters in Cupertino. His death was quickly ruled a suicide just hours later after police found no evidence of foul play at the scene.

What’s strange is how the company refused to give any details about what Mackowiak actually did there. The only information about his job was on a hastily removed Linkedin page. Gizmodo reports it was sparse as well, simply listing him as a software engineer at Apple. His Twitter account has also been quickly deleted. It’s as if the guy himself is being digitally erased post haste.

Trump says North Korea is 'behaving very badly' – after secretary of state draws new red line threatening pre-emptive strike if Kim's regime doesn't end its nuclear weapons program

President Donald Trump blasted the North Korean regime on Friday, supporting his secretary of state for drawing a new red line and hinting at a pre-emptive military strike against Pyongyang's nuclear threat.

'North Korea is behaving very badly. They have been "playing" the United States for years. China has done little to help!' Trump wrote on Twitter.

The message came while his secretary of state Rex Tillerson was still in the Far East. Tillerson bluntly warned North Korea's dictator hours earlier that he faces pre-emptive military action if he continues developing nuclear missiles.

The IRS Scandal, Day 1408: Why Won't The Media Cover It?

It has been nearly four years since the IRS admitted in May of 2013 to singling out and targeting conservative groups, especially tea party groups, for additional scrutiny, onerous paperwork, and even audits. The IRS’s abusive targeting, which lasted for years, was entirely motivated by political animus and caused untold — incalculable, even — devastation to conservatives and to conservative groups. ...

After meeting with, and speaking with, hundreds of local tea party organization members in 2013, I was convinced of three key points: 1) the IRS’s targeting scandal had had a profound impact on organizations’ abilities to attract new members, fundraise, and engage on important policy battles; 2) the chilling effect of the federal government’s actions was real, devastating, and impossible to calculate; and 3) the American public needed to know the full extent of the targeting scandal so we could ensure it would never happen again.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – MARCH 17, 2017: ISIS DEFENSES COLLAPSING ACROSS SYRIA

In the province of Aleppo, the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces liberated the villages of Tal Ahmar, Asimiyah, Qarin, Hazazah, Tal Ayyub, Um Zulaylah and Rasm al-Harmel. Government troops also attacked ISIS units at Ahmadiyah and Zubaydah.

Government forces took control of the Al-Mazar Mountaion, the nearby military depots, the Palmyra gas field. Government troops destroyed an ISIS vehicle at the al-Talila crossroad and some 4 ISIS members at the town of Arak.

Over 150 Russian sappers arrived the Syrian city of Palmyra to take part in a mine clearance effort, the Russian Defense Ministry announced. The sappers will use cutting-edge equipment and protective gear, Ruslan Alakhverdiyev, Deputy Chief of the Russian Armed Forces’ Engineering Troops said at the Russia-24 TV channel.

Jeff Sessions Goes Full 'Reefer Madness' on Pot

Attorney general says marijuana is "only slightly less awful" than heroin

Attorney General Jeff Sessions continued a personal campaign to demonize marijuana, calling cannabis a "life-wrecking dependency" that is "only slightly less awful" than heroin in a speech on violent crime in Richmond, Virginia, Wednesday.

Insisting that the federal government should return to a Nancy Reagan-style, 1980s anti-drug campaign – "educating people and telling them the terrible truth" about controlled substances – Sessions conflated the nation's opioid addiction and overdose crisis, which now claims 140 lives a day, with marijuana, a drug he said will "destroy your life."

Teacher quits after primary school students threaten to behead her

Frightened teachers at a Sydney primary school have revealed students are showing signs of extreme radicalisation at a young age, saying they have been traumatised by threats of beheading and other violent behaviour.

Students as young as in Year 5 are making the threats and pressuring peers into reading the Koran at Punchbowl Public School in Sydney's southwest, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Documents given to the newspaper reportedly reveal that at least three staff members have taken stress leave, received counselling and been paid compensation after bullying from Islamic students.

Israeli warplanes hit targets in Syria as tensions flare

Israeli warplanes struck several targets in Syria early Friday, prompting retaliatory missiles launches, in the most serious incident between the two countries since the Syrian civil war began six years ago.

Syria's military said it had downed an Israeli plane and hit another as they were carrying out pre-dawn strikes near the famed desert city of Palmyra that it recaptured from extremists this month.

"Our air defense engaged them and shot down one warplane over occupied territory, hit another one, and forced the rest to flee," the army said in a statement carried by state news agency SANA.

Palestinian amputee, 14, recalls detention by Israeli forces: 'I wasn't afraid of being hit'

More troops arrived. Issa’s hands were finally shackled behind his back by force with three plastic handcuffs, and he was blindfolded. Two other, older boys were also arrested with him. Issa denies throwing stones at the soldiers. He says he was holding the bag with the pitas before he was arrested and that he was on his way back to his grandmother’s house.

Back on the street, says Issa, a soldier kicked his leg, wrenching loose the prosthesis. Issa fell to the ground, hands tied behind his back. The soldier recoiled in fright at the sight of the false leg. Issa somehow managed to get back up on his one good leg. Other soldiers had arrived in the meantime. One of them, Issa relates, asked him, “What happened to you?” To which he replied, “My leg left me.” “Why didn’t you say so before?” the soldier said and slapped him. The soldiers didn’t give him a chance to explain that he was disabled, Issa says.

“The conflict of interest is best exemplified by politicians queuing up to congratulate George Osborne on his new role. In no way is this double-jobbing acceptable.

“At risk of never receiving favourable coverage in the Standard again, this is a real disservice to Tatton and to professional journalism.

“He simply cannot continue as an MP while editing a daily newspaper and his appointment raises serious doubts about whether London’s Labour Mayor, MPs, and councils will receive fair coverage under such an obviously partisan editor.”

US Expects More Missile, Nuclear Testing by North Korea

With tensions between the US and North Korea always rising in the first quarter of every year, only to fall off when North Korean forces are redeployed to help plant crops, there is still time for North Korea to launch another provocative round of tests for either missiles or their nuclear weapons program, and US officials believe such tests are likely imminent.

Officials quoted by CNN say that the US has deployed a growing number of surveillance satellites over North Korea to track equipment movements that might signal such tests, and that North Korea is moving equipment to unusual, previously unused locations, which they think might be a sign they’re going to try to test from places less covered by the satellites.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No sourced quotes whatsoever, and look at the mealymouth wording; " US officials believe such test are likely imminent" "which they think might be a sign..."

Trump's aggressive North Korea stance may face backlash in Seoul, Beijing

President Donald Trump, known to elude conventional foreign policy, is expected to seek out new solutions to reign in a belligerent Pyongyang, instead of continuing former President Barack Obama's strategy of economic sanctions. Speaking in Tokyo on Thursday, Tillerson highlighted the need for a fresh approach, acknowledging that two decades of American efforts to denuclearize North Korea have failed.

But while Tokyo may be open to a more forceful stance, the same isn't true for Beijing and Seoul.

South Korea's new president and Chinese sovereignty concerns could emerge as key obstacles to Washington's goal of a unified, confrontational stance against North Korea.

US Sends Attack Drones to South Korea Ahead of Simulated Invasion of North

The United States has announced it will send a wing of Grey Eagle attack drones to be permanently stationed in South Korea. Is this a part of a larger strategy?

Brian Becker invited Will Griffin, a member of the US-based task force Stop THAAD in Korea and US Militarism in Asia and & Pacific, to discuss the issue.
The Korean Peninsula has captured the world's attention of late. While North Korea launched a ballistic missile that is in theory capable of delivering a nuclear device, the president of South Korea, Park Geun-hye, was impeached over corruption allegations, leaving the nation in the state of disarray. So why would the US send a wing of attack drones to be permanently stationed in South Korea?

Crimea-for-Sanctions Deal 'Off the Table' - Kremlin Spokesman

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that any deal on Crimea in exchange for the cancellation of Western sanctions "is off the table."

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia will not agree to any deal on Crimea in exchange for the cancellation of Western sanctions, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday, ruling out the prospects of a second referendum.

"No, it cannot. This is off the table," Peskov told reporters when asked whether Moscow was ready to either hammer out a deal with the United States or conduct a second referendum on the Black Sea peninsula.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some forms of peaceful self-determination are obviously more equal than others, in the eyes of the Orwellian American deep state.

Crimean peaceful self-determination (which is precisely what the people practiced when they voted to leave Ukraine and petition the Russian Federation to join it, and is enshrined in the UN charter), was completely rubbished and ignored by the United States government, because that peaceful self-determination was not to their geopolitical liking.

And interestingly, the sanctions have made Russia more independent and stronger, economically.

Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion

Key Democratic officials are clearly worried about the expectations that have been purposely stoked and are now trying to tamp them down. Many of them have tried to signal that the beliefs the base has been purposely led to adopt have no basis in reason or evidence.

The latest official to throw cold water on the MSNBC-led circus is President Obama’s former acting CIA chief Michael Morell. What makes him particularly notable in this context is that Morell was one of Clinton’s most vocal CIA surrogates. In August, he not only endorsed Clinton in the pages of the New York Times but became the first high official to explicitly accuse Trump of disloyalty, claiming: “in the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”

“The proposition is that a sitting MP, from the governing party, is appointed Editor of a major British newspaper – in addition to his new position as a highly-paid City adviser. It smacks of greed and the accumulation of power, undermining the Government’s intention to create a country that works for everyone.

Mr Osborne is clearly being badly advised and we can only hope that others help him to understand the damage he is doing to the reputation of parliament and democracy at a critical time in the country’s history. The conflict of interest is so clear it is astonishing that it should have been proposed. A key role of the media is to hold politicians to account; to have a recent Minister or an MP running the editorial line of a newspaper certainly calls into question whether this principle can be upheld."

Rex Tillerson: When It Comes To North Korea, All Options Are On The Table

A U.S. policy of strategic patience with North Korea has ended, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in South Korea on Friday, adding that military action would be “on the table” if North Korea elevated the threat level.

Tillerson began his first Asian visit as secretary of state in Japan on Wednesday and will travel to China on Saturday with a main focus on finding a “new approach” on North Korea after what he described as two decades of failed efforts to denuclearize the insular nation.

“Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended. We are exploring a new range of security and diplomatic measures. All options are on the table,” Tillerson told a news conference in Seoul.

U.S. ARMY LAUNCHES "JUNGLE WARFARE TRAINING" CAMP

The United States Army gave up its jungle training school in Panama in 1999 when the U.S. returned land there to the Panamanian government. A couple years later jungle training was all but phased out in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks as the Army focused money and manpower on preparing soldiers to fight in the mountainous desert terrains of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Now, surviving and fighting in tropical rainforests has once again recaptured the Army’s interest and sparked the launch of its first jungle training school in decades located some 30 miles inland from Hawaii's Waikiki Beach.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Part of the US Military's "pivot to Asia", I suppose; but this decision to bring back jungle warfare techniques telegraphs that this not for the US government's resolving its geopolitical conflicts in a peaceful way, full of moral, hard-won negotiations.

Mac Slavo: "On June 1st The Deep State Will Move To Overthrow Trump"

On Wednesday, March 15, 2017 the U.S. government once again hit its debt ceiling. In short, this means that until Congress raises the ceiling, the government will be unable to borrow more money. If you remember the last time this happened, there were weeks of posturing by Republicans and Democrats while some government services started shutting down. After much deliberation and negotiation the debt ceiling was eventually raised and collapse was avoided.

But this time around we may see a very different set of events play out. If it isn’t clear to you just yet, President Trump is under attack from all sides. Democrats, the media and even members of his own Party want to see him fail. But perhaps more importantly, it is the shadow operators known as “The Deep State” who may take this opportunity to lay the blame for decades of machinations at Trump’s feet.

Suspicious cellular activity in D.C. suggests monitoring of individuals' smartphones

As the discussion over wiretapping and foreign hacking still dominates the conversation in Washington, an unusually high amount of suspicious cell phone activity in the nation’s capital has caught the attention of the Department of Homeland Security, raising concerns that U.S. officials are being monitored by a foreign entity.

The issue was first reported in the Washington Free Beacon, but a source at telecom security firm ESD America confirmed the spike in suspicious activity to CBS News.

Based on the type of technology used, the source continued, it is likely that the suspicious activity was being conducted by a foreign nation.

The news comes the same week that two Democratic lawmakers wrote to Kelly saying they were “deeply concerned” about hacking vulnerabilities in U.S. cellular networks.

Notice that this is not at all sourced, and we read that breathless statement that "...it is likely that the suspicious activity was being conducted by a foreign nation."

I have to chuckle, and ask myself, "Who are they going to blame for this"?!?

Intelligent people understand to keep their cell conversations light, fluffy, and not of any real import; in fact, Mike and I think that surveilling our phones is punishment duty for newbies at any of the alphabet soup agencies.

And the reality is, that the "baddies" already have their phones encrypted to the point where no one can mess with them.

Top 15 Discoveries & Implications of Wikileaks CIA Vault 7 – So Far

Vault 7 has been the subject of a curious and cryptic set of tweets from Wikileaks over the course of the past month or so. Now we know why. In bombshell news, in the greatest leak in Wikileaks history, in the greatest leak in CIA history, a total of 8,761 documents has been released in a series that has been dubbed Vault 7. Even for seasoned conspiracy researchers, the documents are fascinating and horrible at the same time. It confirms the suspicions and knowledge of many investigators. Now we have the proof to substantiate our hunches and intuition. The CIA has been caught with its pants down: spying on its citizens, bypassing encryption to steal their messages, hacking into their electronic devices to listen on their conversations, using US consulates abroad to conduct spying operations, remotely hacking into vehicles (to perform undetectable assassinations) and much more.

Windows 10: Fears that Microsoft is about to force updates over metered connections

Some Windows fans are worried that the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update could mean costly data bills.

Windows 10 currently treats Windows Updates on cellular networks differently to those over Wi-Fi because Microsoft knows these updates can be large and result in sizeable bills if they take place on a so-called metered connection, such as a cellular network.

For this reason Windows 10 only downloads 'priority updates'.

But, as SuperSite Windows reports, the latest Windows Insider fast ring build of the Windows 10 Creators update notes a change to the language used.

THE DEBT CEILING DEADLINE HAS PASSED, AND NOW THE BIGGEST TEST OF DONALD TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY BEGINS…

On Wednesday, the temporary suspension of the debt ceiling ended, and so now the federal government is not going to be able to go into any more debt until the debt ceiling is raised. For the moment, the Trump administration can implement “emergency measures” to stay under the debt limit, but it won’t be too long before we get to a major crisis point because the federal government is quickly running out of cash. Already, the U.S. Treasury has less cash on hand than Apple or Google, and that cash balance is going to keep on dropping until the debt ceiling is finally lifted.
You may remember that the debt ceiling became a major issue a couple of times during the Obama years. Last time around, Barack Obama and the Republicans in Congress agreed to a horrendous deal which suspended the debt ceiling until several months after the 2016 election…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT inflated "standard of living"?!?

Maybe for the one percenters, but not for the rest of us, thank you very much.

I am grateful to Heaven right now that I understand how to "slow cook" foods, and be both economical and frugal in our food purchases.

What Congress should do, if it collectively had an ounce of sense, is "pull an Iceland", declare the debt odious, and charge those in the financial sector and government who got us into this mess, and upon conviction, jail their collective backsides with hard time, to encourage others in the government and financial sector to never do this again.

Of course, given the nature of the beast which is Congress, that will only happen when pigs have the ability to fly.

The distinguished armchair warriors at Foreign Policy are now deeply concerned about the lack of "moderate" rebels currently operating in Syria. (Perhaps because even Washington now admits that the largest coalition of "rebels" consists mainly of extremists and Al-Qaeda affiliates.)

But Mr. Blumenthal correctly points out that the "serious" foreign policy thinkers — the folks at the de facto NATO think tank, "Atlantic Council", for example — have never tried to disguise their admiration for clearly-not-moderate rebels.

AMERICAN CORPORATE MSM IS MERGED WITH CIA AND HAS BEEN SINCE THE 1950S

With the recent back and forth seemingly taking place between two different factions of the American Deep State and playing out before the entire country, a few alternative media outlets have begun to question whether or not certain mainstream media outlets are actually connected to the Deep State, most notably the CIA. With an unimaginable scale of disinformation being released and promoted throughout mainstream channels on a daily basis, all propagandizing the public to go along with the desired direction of the American establishment, few could assume otherwise. However, such connections between American mainstream outlets and the CIA are more than mere conjecture, they are well-known and have been documented for some time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember this when the corporate presstitutes on television and radio are marching in lock step, advocating yet more wars, and yet more sacrifices of your children on the bloody pyre of manufactured hatred toward the designated enemy, to exhibit their courage, and honor, and "protect the American way of life", when what they are really protecting are the economic profits of the 1%

After all, war is one of the most financially lucrative businesses at all.

Financial institutions love war, because governments have to borrow - at interest - to keep those wars going.

YOU’RE NOW TWICE AS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE THE ‘AMERICAN DREAM’ IN CANADA

The American dream — the idea that anyone can own their own home and do better than the previous generation with the right amount of hard work — has been fading for years, with rising house prices and stagnant wages. Now, people who want to achieve it may be better off seeking it in Canada, the U.K. or Denmark according to a new study published by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
At least the Fed is admitting its total failure.

The study, authored by Raj Chetty, professor of economics at Stanford University, defined the concept as the ability for children born in the bottom fifth of income distribution to reach the top fifth. In the U.S. the likelihood of that is 7.5%, whereas in Canada children born in that group are twice as likely to rise to the top — at 13.5%. In the U.K. the likelihood of achieving that move from the bottom fifth to the top fifth is 9% and in Denmark it is 11.7%.

Note: The core of their identities! Many countries also have broader laws that criminalize genocide denial. Of the countries that ban Holocaust denial, some, such as Austria, Germany, Hungary, and Romania, were among the perpetrators of the Holocaust, and many of these also ban other elements associated with Nazism, such as the expression of Nazi symbols.

Tillerson not ruling out US deployment of nuclear weapons to Korean Peninsula

"Nothing has been taken off the table," Tillerson said in the interview with Fox News, in comments if Washington admits the possibility of increasing weapons supplies to Seoul and deploying nuclear weapons to South Korea. "We’re exchanging views," Tillerson said during his visit to the demilitarized zone on the border between two Koreas. "The policy of strategic patience has ended," he stressed at a press conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se.

General Eisenhower wanted to deploy nukes to Korea during the Korean war, but Truman opposed the idea, instead sending bomb assemblies minus the fission cores as a warning.

Maddow’s big nothingburger

This could be a learning experience for you, Rachel. You could return from this self-inflicted faceplant with a new sense of what the media ought to be doing, instead of carrying out weak hits on the president on behalf of a Democrat Party which seems bent on self-annihilation. You could even share the lesson with many of your media accomplices; many of whom are in dire need of it. I have serious doubts that you will, however. In the meantime, you made that nothingburger… now you have to eat it.

Remember: There is no “right to be forgotten” in the abstract; no law can ensure that, and no law can be limited to that. Instead, the “right” this aims to protect is the power to suppress speech — the power to force people (on pain of financial ruin) to stop talking about other people, when some government body decides that they should stop.

Trump’s Quiet Outreach to Russia

By Gilbert Doctorow

Many backers of Donald Trump’s planned foreign policy, which sought détente with Russia, are wringing their hands and shaking their heads over what looks like the policy’s defeat in the face of media and Democratic Party attacks, abetted by maverick Republican senators, in which “Russian contacts” and “Russian meddling” are the code words.

But there may be another way to see the situation. There are indications that Trump may be continuing to advance a more collaborative approach toward Russia through the quiet expansion of military-to-military cooperation, such as the recent meeting in Turkey to coordinate strikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

However, thanks to an archaic state law, Kerrygold Irish Butter is being ripped from the shelves of grocery stores, and consumers are not happy...
