Conservative Judge Who ‘Benchslapped’ Lawyers To Release Hillary Clinton Documents Takes Over Fusion GPS Case

The Obama-appointed judge overseeing the Fusion GPS case, Tanya Chutkan, has been unexpectedly removed. The judge replacing her is Richard J. Leon, a George W. Bush appointee.

Obama-Appointed Judge Overseeing Fusion GPS Case Is Unexpectedly Removed

Chutkan was troubling because she was an Obama appointee whose law firm represented Huma Abedin and other Democrat insiders. She’s also the judge who ordered DHS to procure an abortion for a pregnant illegal teen.

Now, for reasons we don’t know, Chutkan has been taken off the Fusion GPS case and the case handed to Judge Richard de Leon. This is the PACER notice (Fusion GPS is the d/b/a of Bean LLC, see the last link) :

Why did this happen? One has to assume that Chutkan’s potential conflicts of interest were demonstrated to be real.

Saudis Reopen Yemen Border Crossing, Still Block Aid

Growing complaints about the humanitarian catastrophe in Saudi-blockaded Yemen have led the Saudi government to announce that the al-Wadea border crossing is being reopened. Last week the Saudis closed all ports, airports, and land crossings.

Despite the reopening of Wadea, however, and the allowing of limited ships into southern Aden port, UN officials say that the Saudi-led coalition is still blocking all of their aid deliveries into the country, continuing the siege.

The near-term concern is for the lack of medicine, as northern Yemen is essentially out of everything at this point, and doctors say several hundred patients will die within the next week simply for lack of medicine.

The long-term prospects are even worse, with northern Yemen having an estimated six weeks of food left, and UN officials warning that “millions” could be killed by starvation if the blockade continues past that point, causing one of the worst famines in generations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to understand that this is precisely what Prince Salman, the Butcher of Yemen, wants to see happen here; and that is, a complete genocide and obliteration of the Yemeni people.

I am utterly amazed, understanding how intensely he wants this to happen, that he has not carpet-bombed the country, so that no Yemeni is left standing.

But that may well be the next phase of his operation in Yemen.

Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is being HELD in Saudi Arabia after shock resignation, Beirut official says as country demands his return

Former Lebanon Prime Minister Saad Hariri is being held in Saudi Arabia after his shock resignation, a Beirut official has claimed.

Officials in Lebanon are now reportedly planning to work with foreign states to secure the politician's return to the country in the latest twist in an extraordinary resignation.

Hariri resigned as prime minister on Saturday in a shock declaration read from Saudi Arabia, pitching Lebanon into deep political crisis and pushing the country back to the forefront of a regional struggle between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

'Lebanon is heading towards asking foreign and Arab states to put pressure on Saudi to release Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri,' said the official, who declined to be identified because the government had yet to declare the initiative.

The House GOP’s Tax Plan Embraces Class Warfare

***
Instead of following through with the promise of taking seven brackets and simplifying them to three, Speaker Ryan and Chairman Brady added in a fourth bracket exclusively for millionaires,” complains David McIntosh, president of the pro-market Club for Growth (a group I’ve addressed numerous times). This complex foolishness imposes an effective marginal tax rate of 45.6 percent on single filers who earn $1 million to $1.2 million and couples who make between $1.2 and $1.6 million. “That’s a real tax increase on successful people who invest and create jobs,” McIntosh lamented. Shamefully, this would be 15.15 percent, or six percentage points, above today’s 39.6 percent top rate.

Saudi arrest of Binladin family scion shatters royal entente

Among those caught in the unprecedented arrests this week of top princes, wealthy businessmen and senior officials was the scion of one of Saudi Arabia’s most recognizable families: Bakr Binladin, the chairman of the kingdom’s pre-eminent contractor — and Osama bin Laden’s half-brother.

It was a stunning end to a decades-old alliance between the ruling Al Saud and Binladin families that saw the Saudi Binladin Group secure a near-monopoly on mega-expansion projects in Islam’s two holiest sites, Mecca and Medina, throughout the reigns of successive Saudi monarchs.

A Letter From Iraq - Grief, Forgiveness, and 20 Million Pilgrims

TIKRIT and NAJAF, Iraq - Nothing, absolutely nothing prepares you to revive, on the spot, the memory of what will go down in history as ISIS / Daesh’s most horrid killing field in Iraq or Syria since the death cult stormed across the border in the summer of 2014; the Speicher massacre of June 12, 2014 – when almost 2,000 Iraqi army recruits were assassinated in and nearby a former Saddam Hussein palace on the banks of the Tigris near Tikrit.

As Dylan would sing it, “ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re trying to be so quiet”. In 2003, a few days after Shock and Awe and the fall of Baghdad, I took the road to Tikrit for Asia Times to survey Uday Hussein’s bombed palace as well as his father’s birthplace, only to return 14 years later to one of those palaces turned into a house of horror.

Permanent Iranian military base being built in Syria - reports

A western intelligence source has claimed to the BBC that Iran is building a new permanent military base in Syria just to the south of Damascus.

This came as Israel claimed it will not tolerate an Iranian military base in Syria as the country borders the Zionist entity.

"Israel will not let that happen," he said in September.

Although the BBC acknowledged it was difficult to verify if Iranian troops were present and that there were no signs of heavy weaponry, western intelligence have emphasized to the BBC that it is a military installment.

Convoy of Egyptian army trucks destroyed by IS militants in Sinai

A convoy of cement trucks from an Egyptian army factory was attacked by militants linked to the Islamic State group in the central Sinai peninsula on Thursday.

Eight civilian employees and two soldiers were killed in the ambush, according to Egyptian state security officials.

Among the dead was Lieutenant Colonel Ibrahim Hussein Mohammed, who was attacked near the town of Nakhl, an anonymous security source told the Associated Press.

Egyptian security officials added that the militants stole the soldier's weapons and burnt the seven trucks.

Saudi Warplanes Attack Yemeni Capital, Wounding Civilians

Saudi warplanes circled the Yemeni capital of Sanaa throughout the day, carrying out multiple attacks against the defense ministry and the surrounding area, with a number of the strikes hitting a residential area next to the ministry building.

Several homes were damaged in the strikes and one was totally destroyed, leaving only a crater. Despite this, locals could confirm no deaths from the strikes, though a substantial number of wounded were being rescued from the ruins.

These are the latest in a long series of attacks on the Yemeni capital during the Saudi war, and while the defense ministry has been targeted occasionally in the past, this appears to be the most concerted effort against the building.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Houthi rebels are smart, this building may well be symbolic at this point, and not a center of communications at all for their activities.

But that the killing and maiming of Yemeni civilians continues, 3 years on, enabled by US military collusion, is a war crime, pure and simple, and cannot be allowed to stand by an allegedly civilised world.

Mohammad bin Salman Can Trigger a World War - Depending on What Russia Will do?

This can lead to global war depending on what russia may choose to do in the event of conflict. Westerners living under the current monetised order could hope that it could be replaced. And If Hezbollah is required through conflict to withdraw to Lebanon from fighting with the Assad forces, then the Kurds will be freer to fight for independence.

Soros-backed ‘rank amateurs’ forge RT contributor’s signature under anti-Russia declaration

RT columnist Bryan MacDonald, a Moscow professor, and the mysterious “Bumfrey McDoogle from the School of Hard Knox” are just some of the people that appeared on an anti-Kremlin petition by the increasingly gaffe-prone European Values think tank.
The distinctly named ‘Prague Declaration’ addresses “the democratic West” and proposes “seven urgent steps” to be taken “to stop Russian aggression.” The paper, intended for “Western leaders such as EU High Representative Federica Mogherini,” is said to have been endorsed by “more than 100 European and American security experts and parliamentarians from 22 countries.”

However, a closer look at the signatories reveal some odd exceptions among Moscow’s traditional adversaries, such as exiled businessman Bill Browder and former NSA analyst John Schindler.

One such name is MacDonald, who is described incorrectly as a “former RT correspondent” and earnestly as a “foot soldier in the fight against Putin.”

Hamid Karzai: US colluded with ISIL in Afghanistan

Hamid Karzai, the former president of Afghanistan, has accused the US of working with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group in his country.

In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera's UpFront aired on Friday, Karzai said the US government had allowed ISIL, also known as ISIS, to flourish inside Afghanistan.

"In my view under the full presence, surveillance, military, political, intelligence, Daesh [ISIL] has emerged," he said.

"And for two years the Afghan people came, cried loud about their suffering, of violations. Nothing was done."

THE NATIONAL GUARD AND LAW ENFORCEMENT USE SECRET PLANES TO SPY ON OUR CELL PHONES

A recent article in the Texas Observer, revealed that the National Guard is using multi-protocol scanners and receivers to spy on everyone.

The National Guard and the DEA, recently purchased two DRT 1301C portable receiver systems from Digital Receiver Technology Inc., (DRT).

DRT's or 'dirt boxes' allow the National Guard and DEA to secretly listen to 10,000 cell phones at once.

According to an article in the Columbia Journalism Review (CJR) the National Guard and law enforcement use front companies like Air Cereberus and Eagle Eye Investigations to secretly spy on everyone.

CJR used an algorithm called "random forest" to reveal the identities of secret surveillance planes run by the National Guard, DHS and law enforcment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to laugh, to think that Mike and I would be considered "spy worthy" of listening in to our conversations; but then again, even in one's home, there is no protection against surveillance in this country in the 21st century.

And hey, DHS, I will give it to you straight; I am a Christian pacifist activist, who is constantly, peacefully entreating her government to resolve its geopolitical differences through moral negotiations, rather than through bombs and bullets.

I am a composer and conductor of two church choirs at a small Methodist church close to where I live, and should, at every level, be the absolute least of your problems.

But with all this high tech stuff you are flaunting, why do you have such a pathological inability to catch so few of the really bad guys?!? Why can you not protect Americans from hijackware and malware on our computers?!? Wouldn't this be a higher, and better use of your time than just spying on everyone, hoping you'll get lucky?!?

HIVE: CIA INFRASTRUCTURE TO CONTROL ITS MALWARE

9 November 2017, WikiLeaks publishes the source code and development logs to Hive, a major component of the CIA infrastructure to control its malware.

Hive solves a critical problem for the malware operators at the CIA. Even the most sophisticated malware implant on a target computer is useless if there is no way for it to communicate with its operators in a secure manner that does not draw attention. Using Hive even if an implant is discovered on a target computer, attributing it to the CIA is difficult by just looking at the communication of the malware with other servers on the internet. Hive provides a covert communications platform for a whole range of CIA malware to send exfiltrated information to CIA servers and to receive new instructions from operators at the CIA.

The documentation for Hive is available from the WikiLeaks Vault7 series.

"ISRAEL WILL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN": IRAN IS REPORTEDLY BUILDING A MILITARY BASE IN SYRIA

On Friday, the "western press" started to set the stage for war between Lebanon (and Iran) and Saudi Arabia (and Israel).

Just a few hours later, a far more provocative report was published by the BBC, according to which Iran is establishing a permanent military base inside Syria, citing a Western intelligence source. The report, predictably, comes amid growing tensions over Iranian influence in Syria and across the region, and as the Saudi-Israel "alliance" is desperate to find a pretext to begin war.

As the BBC adds, the Iranian military is said to have established a compound at a site used by the Syrian army outside El-Kiswah, 14 km (8 miles) south of Damascus.

Needless to say, for Israel this would constitute the crossing of a "red line" by Iran: Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu recently warned that Iran wanted to establish itself militarily in Syria. "Israel will not let that happen," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get this straight; Israel intends to go in, guns blazing, to invade a foreign country (Syria) to get rid of the presence of another foreign country (Iran) with absolutely zero credible proof as to what the purpose of these buildings are, other than some dodgy half-claims, convenient to Israel's case for invasion, which utterly cannot be backed up by facts?!?!?

Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please; if the IDF goes forward and attacks, Israel will never, ever have any credibility in the world, ever again. That might not particularly matter to you, but it will matter to future generations of Israelis.

U.S. Imposes Oil Blockade to Force Venezuela into Default

The U.S. is betting on the default of Venezuela affecting its financial credibility and hampering its debt repayments.

While continuing the commercial and financial embargo and the systematic attack on PDVSA, it was revealed at the start of November that imports of Venezuelan oil to the United States this year have declined to 56 percent compared to last year. This multi-pronged attack that this state industry is facing as the main foreign exchange earner of the country, has been run by a network of internal allies, many of whom have been detained by the Public Prosecutor's Office in recent months. This was after the former Attorney General Luisa Ortega Diaz became a key factor in allowing the continuity of these mafias to operate within the company.

In addition to corruption and internal sabotage, PDVSA is facing a series of sanctions for the issuance of debt, which has also complicated transactions with U.S. refineries for the purchase of crude oil.>>>

‘We still need to eat’: Tech boom creates working homeless

In the same affluent, suburban city where Google built its headquarters, Tes Saldana lives in a crowded but tidy camper she parks on the street.

She concedes it’s “not a very nice living situation,” but it also is not unusual. Until authorities told them to move, more than a dozen other RVs filled with people who can’t afford rent joined Saldana on a tree-lined street in Mountain View, parked between a Target and a luxury apartment complex.

Homeless advocates and city officials say it’s outrageous that in the shadow of a booming tech economy - where young millionaires dine on $15 wood-grilled avocado and think nothing of paying $1,000 for an iPhone X - thousands of families can’t afford a home. Many of the homeless work regular jobs, in some cases serving the very people whose sky-high net worth is the reason housing has become unaffordable for so many.

Snapchat loses $40m on flop Spectacles

The company behind Snapchat has taken a $40m (£30m) hit to its finances after its video-recording sunglasses failed to sell as well as hoped.

Snap launched Spectacles in September 2016, originally selling them only through pop-up vending machines.

Pressing a button on the glasses records a short video that can be shared on the Snapchat messaging app.

But on Tuesday the company revealed costs of $40m (£30m) due to "excess inventory" and cancelled orders.

Hive: CIA Infrastructure to Control Its Malware

9 November 2017, WikiLeaks publishes the source code and development logs to Hive, a major component of the CIA infrastructure to control its malware. Hive solves a critical problem for the malware operators at the CIA. Even the most sophisticated malware implant on a target computer is useless if there is no way for it to communicate with its operators in a secure manner that does not draw attention. Using Hive even if an implant is discovered on a target computer, attributing it to the CIA is difficult by just looking at the communication of the malware with other servers on the internet. Hive provides a covert communications platform for a whole range of CIA malware to send exfiltrated information to CIA servers and to receive new instructions from operators at the CIA.

“We are too small for all of the missions we are being asked to carry out on behalf of the nation, and as a result we’re burning out our people,” Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday. She cited an example of a pilot she met last week, who had just returned from his 17th deployment.

Back to the future…NATO self-fulfilling war plans for Russia

Defense ministers of the US-led NATO alliance this week endorsed proposals to set up two new military commands – and it is clear Russia is the target of what are, in effect, war plans.

The setting up of an Atlantic command and a logistical hub in Europe to facilitate the transfer of troops and weapons was openly discussed by NATO officials as being aimed at Russia during their two-day summit in Brussels this week.

The two new commands being proposed are the first expansion of NATO’s command structure since the end of the Cold War more than 25 years ago. It’s a retrograde move that is not only an unnecessary, dangerous provocation to Russia, risking self-fulfilling war threats. Moreover, NATO’s renewed organizational cranking is openly calling for the integration of European societies and economies into its madcap military escalation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is ABSOFLIPPINGLUTLELY NOT the aggressor here; it is NATO and the US behaving in an aggressive manor, and prepping for war against Russia with these moves.

NASA's New Plane Design Is a Simple, Brilliant Fuel-Saver

NASA's idea is pretty straightforward: place a large turbofan engine on the rear of a plane, where it will collect the slow-moving air traveling along the plane's body. This lets the wing-mounted turbofans be built smaller, which means less drag and a higher fuel efficiency.

That by itself would mean a minor improvement to fuel use, but NASA decided to go a step further. The engineers also added generators to the wing-mounted turbofans, and the electricity generated by these engines is used to power the tail-mounted one. This means that the rear turbofan that provides much of the plane's thrust doesn't require any fuel to operate.

Children are Being Educated in School to Obey the Government’s Vaccination Agenda

By Christina England, BA Hons

Children around the world are being taught in school from an early age to believe that vaccines are safe and effective as part of their education. Not only is there evidence to support this fact, but there is also evidence that many children are being regularly brainwashed to believe that if they do not receive their vaccinations, they could get ill and die from vaccine-preventable diseases.

The Learning Network, which works in conjunction with The New York Times, lays out a series of lesson plans for teachers in the US, including a lesson titled Fighting Disease: Researching the History and Biology of Vaccines. This lesson in particular should interest the many parents who are unaware that their children are being brainwashed to think in a particular way when they send them to school...

Trump backs purge of Saudi royal family – at a price

US President Donald Trump has swiftly followed up his Tuesday tweet in support of the great Saudi purge of the kingdom’s elite. A White House statement on Wednesday “welcomed” the allegation by Riyadh that Iran is supporting the Houthi militias of Yemen “including the supply of illegal arms such as ballistic missiles.”

In his tweet, Trump plunged straight into the heart of the power struggle in the House of Saud, saying “I have great confidence in King Salman and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, they know exactly what they are doing … Some of those they are harshly treating have been “milking” their country for years!”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Venezuela Officially Declared In Default

Today at 11am, the ISDA Determinations Committee sits down to decide whether an event of default has occurred due to the delayed principal payment on the Petroleos de Venezuela SA, or PDVSA, bond that matured Nov. 2, in the process triggering PDVSA (and perhaps Venezuela) CDS, and officially declaring Venezuela in default.

We won't have to wait that long: moments ago, Wilmington Trust, the Trustee of the 8.5% bonds due 2018, issued by Corpoelec, Venezuela's electricity company, declared that the missed interest payment originally due October 10, and whose 30 day grace period expired on November 9, and for which no pament was sent or received, officially constitutes an event of default.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the question which now has to be asked, is will Venezuela be allowed to restructure their default, or will the country's economy just be pushed into complete, systemicfailure by US economic interests?!?

The Venezuelan people certainly deserve better than this.

Dijsselbloem Admits "We Used Taxpayers' Money To Bailout The Banks"

“We had a banking crisis, a fiscal crisis and we spent lot of the tax-payers’ money – in the wrong way, in my opinion – to save the banks” outgoing Eurogroup head Jeroen Dijsselbloem said adding “so that the people criticizing us and saying that everything was being done for the benefit of the banks were to some extent right.”

As KeepTalkingGreece.com reports, Dijsselbloem was responding to a question posed by leftist MEP Nikos Chountis during a session at the European Parliament’s Employment and Social Affairs Committee on Thursday.

“This is valid for the banks of all our countries. Everywhere in Europe banks were saved at taxpayers’ cost,” he underlined.

“This was the reason for banking union and the introduction of higher standards, better supervision and a reform and rescue framework when banks have losses,” he said stressing “precisely so that we don’t find ourselves in that situation again.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is something glaringly, institutionally wrong when these vile economic evils are committed, and no one goes to jail.

The Greek people got railroaded, big-time, at the expense of the banks, and those executives creating these situations should be tried and convicted by a jury of their peers, period, end of discussion.

US Air Force official: Missile targeting Saudis was Iranian

Iran manufactured the ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Shiite rebels toward the Saudi capital and remnants of it bore “Iranian markings,” the top U.S. Air Force official in the Mideast said Friday, backing the kingdom’s earlier allegations.

The comments by Lt. Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian, who oversees the Air Force’s Central Command in Qatar, further internationalizes the yearslong conflict in Yemen — the Arab world’s poorest country.

Saudi Arabia long has accused Iran of giving weapons to the Shiite rebels known as Houthis and their allies, though Tehran has just as long denied supplying them. Riyadh quickly backed up Harrigian’s allegations in a statement to The Associated Press.

“There have been Iranian markings on those missiles,” Harrigian told journalists at a news conference in Dubai ahead of the Dubai Air Show. “To me, that connects the dots to Iran.”

There was no immediate reaction from Tehran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lt. Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian, a word, sir, please: have you not recieved the memo that the "big lie" went out with the whoopie cushion and the dribble glass?!?

Yemen's Defense Ministry said the missile attack "shook the Saudi capital" and the operation was successful. The attack was conducted using a Yemeni-made, long-range missile called the Burqan 2H, it said.

Yemeni missile strikes Saudi capital cith Riyadh

Sir, this is rather like pregnancy; either the weapon was Yemeni manufactured and launched, or it was not. You cannot have this both ways. And so far, both Yemeni and Saudi military experts claimed that the weapon was Yemeni in origin.

Yes, we all know what the agenda here is; to lie the American people into yet another bloody war in the Middle East against Iran for its oil resources, for which the Saudis and Israelis have been cheerleading for quite some time.

But you and your colleagues, pushing for this war, are facing a far more war-skeptical, and war-weary nation than you were right after 9/11, when the US was lied into swallowing whole that bit of codswallop that Saddam Hussein had "weapons of mass destruction."

The price for lying to the American people, and the world, Lt. Harrigian, is to never be believed again; and in your "taking one for the team" on this assertion that the missile was Iranian, and not Yemeni in origin, you have just sacrificed every bit of professional credibility you ever had, sir.

And please understand the following; while Riyadh and Tel Aviv have been advocating for regime change in Tehran, they fully expect this do be accomplished at the costs of American blood, and American money.

And please remember; should we go to war against Iran, Russian military and civilian leadership has vowed to protect it militarily; war with Russia ...over Iran?!?

For whom, sir, would this really be worth the cost?!? Not for the American kids who will die and get maimed for life in such a war; thank you, no.
