No one is coming to save us

If you’re waiting for someone to save you from the tidal wave of corporate censorship, government authoritarianism and deranged left-wing violence, you’re following a mirage. No one is coming to save you. If you want to live as a free person in a free world, you’re going to have to demand it, fight for it and secure it.

US orders $480mn-hypersonic missile prototype suitable for ‘great power competition’

The US Air Force paid $480 million for a second top-spec hypersonic missile prototype to gain ground “in the era of great power competition,” following reports of Russia’s successes in developing unrivaled high-speed weapons.

The Air Force awarded a $480-million contract to Lockheed Martin, tasking the company with designing a second hypersonic missile prototype, referred to as the Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW). Lockheed Martin will design, test and support the production of the weapon, according to a US Air Force statement

The Great Potential in Artificial Intelligence (And the Evil)

Although it is easy to conjure up images of how artificial intelligence will result in robots that can take over the world, such a possibility in the near future is remote. And if robots get that smart, with super robot physical capabilities and their own, or programmed, value scales, then we would have something very serious to worry about. But, mini-robots with narrow bad actor artificial intelligence could be a problem at even an earlier date.It would be kind of an alien invasion from within. The likeliest place for such dangerous
robot development is, of course, in the military.

Conclusion after 18 years working with both political party ‘leaderships’: US is a lying, looting, illegal neocolonial rogue state empire pimped by corporate media and public education, with zero improvement possible until .01% arrests

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

US political, media, and education “leaders” are liars with criminal complicity of neocolonial crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions as .01% parasites manipulate to control and profit from Earth’s resources (natural and human).

No improvement is possible without .01% arrests after an Emperor’s New Clothes public awakening.

Let’s consider:
1. My testimony of a front seat to this tragic-comic parasitism.
2. Documented data to explain and prove my factual claims.

What I witnessed of US “leadership”

From 1980 to 1997 I was a volunteer with for US domestic and foreign policy to end poverty. Our work started in Southern California, I took it to Northern California as a UC Berkeley student, and we expanded to over 100 US communities, seven countries, and were leading voices for two UN summits for heads of state (details documented here). My observations include:

What’s really going on when you hear the words ‘public policy’

When politicians and bureaucrats talk about democracy and public policy, they speak with a forked tongue. They want you to believe that these terms refer to personal liberty. They do not, and the politician knows that they do not. They know that they refer to the police power and enforcement of state authority over the individual. They are code words for government force.

The Federal Reserve: Secretly Sticking It To Americans For Over 100 Years

Of course the central bankers will tell us that secrecy is important for “maintaining independence” and “security” of the markets. These claims that there is a legitimate need for secrecy would be slightly more credible if it were for a limited time. -- That is not the case, however. The Fed is, in many regards, a virtual black box which shall remain closed for all time, at least if officials continue to have their way. -- The most “interesting” works of the Wall Street elites in power there will never be published or examined. It is considered vital the public never knows about certain activities. -- There is only one reason for that level of secrecy: We might object.

George Orwell Warned Us Of The Most Dangerous Type Of Censorship

The end result of this type of censorship, however, quite likely will not bring about the feared Soviet-style clampdown on ideas that challenge the establishment. It’s more reasonable to expect that these companies have fallen prey to monopolistic hubris and will soon see massive declines in viewership, collapsing stock prices and the revolt of angry shareholders. In other words, these companies are shooting themselves in the feet. That said, the current social/political/media climate in America today is likely to bring about the rise of a far more insidious and dangerous type of censorship: self-censorship.

Exposed: How Google Still Tracks You Even When “Location History” Is Turned Off

After all, the Google support page says, “With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.” -- But a new Associated Press investigation showed how that is not really the case. Some Google apps still automatically collect users’ location markers—information it can use to benefit its advertising revenue.

Alex Jones flees to Vimeo, is immediately banned there as well

Alex Jones is trying to find a new home for his crumbling Infowars empire, but his latest encampment lasted mere days before he was banned from yet another digital platform. Late last week, Jones posted several videos on Vimeo, but by Sunday he and his videos had been removed from the service.

Vimeo told Business Insider that it removed the videos because they “violated our Terms of Service prohibitions on discriminatory and hateful content.” The spokesperson added, “[W]e do not want to profit from content of this nature in any way.” Employees inside the company had reportedly voiced concern about the account’s existence last week. Vimeo CEO Anjali Sud plans to address the decision during a town hall meeting Monday morning.

Vimeo’s ban follows decisions by Facebook, Apple, Spotify, and YouTube to ban or at least suspend Jones from using their services to spread his conspiracy theories and hateful rhetoric

US Sanctions Are Pushing Russia To War

The new round of sanctions this week unleashed by the United States on Russia has only one meaning: the US rulers want to crush Russia’s economy. By any definition, Washington is, in effect, declaring war on Russia.

The implemented economic measures may have a seemingly abstract or sterile quality about them: banning electronic exports to Russia, rattling financial markets, stock prices falling. But the material consequence is that American officials are intending to inflict physical damage on Russian society and Russian people.

It’s economic warfare on a sliding scale to military warfare, as the Prussian General Karl von Clausewitz would no doubt appreciate.

It seems all the more significant that this week also saw US internet services launching a major clampdown on anti-war websites, suggesting that the powers-that-be want to shut down any criticism or public awareness of their reckless warmongering.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is absolutely correct in his assessment.

Unfortunately, the the timing of this unloosing of the "dogs of war" against Russia, via these sanctions, and these attempts at silencing the independent media right now, which generally are pro-peace, were no accidents.

I cannot know when a physical false flag will be turned loose against Russia; I might suggest, potentially, that it may happen at the "drop-dead moment" President Trump has declared, as the absolute moratorium against all governments on the planet to stop buying oil from Iran; that "drop dead date", is Sunday, 4 November, the Sunday before the mid-term elections which happen in the US on Tuesday, 6 November.

This will be largely unenforceable, in light of the fact that Russia, China, and Turkey, have all spurned this veto against trade, and will continue to trade with Iran.

I would suggest that there may be something significant, happening either on Monday 5 November, on on the mid-term election date proper, against both Iran and Russia, although I see a potential attack against Iran coming sooner, as President Trump's pollsters may well see that there is a very real concern among the American people, that such an attack has absolutely no US legal "cover", (which it does not), so may feel they want to go in early, perhaps during, or right after the Labor Day holiday coming up, with yet another ginned up, concoction of lies, so that the American people will generally have just come back from a holiday, before they realize that their country has gone to war against Iran.

OF course, for the country of Israel, such a war against Iran cannot possibly happen soon enough.

For his next vacation this summer at any of the hotels he owns, I would politely suggest that President Trump should be reading Sun Tzu's "The Art of War." I have archived a version for him here, from the MIT classics Library.
Sun Tzu: The Art of War.

H needs to see where the US government and military stack up to any of the thoughts this military genius had about why wars are successfully won, or horrifically lost, then move accordingly.

I would like to politely remind President Trump, Congress, the Pentagon, Congress and the State Department, that right now in its history, the US military does not have the troop strength; the money; the manufacturing, or the weaponry to insure a successful outcome in a war against both Russia and /or China.

And when any wars the United States undertake, go nuclear, as may well go any wars against China or Russia by the United States, I would suggest extreme caution by President Trump in what he wishes for as the outcome, from such a conflagration; the results may well be both horrific..... and irreversible.

Sweden Is Burning: Migrant Gangs Unleash Coordinated Fire-Bomb Rampage Across Multiple Cities

Many Swedes were horrified in early 2017 when U.S. President Donald Trump linked immigration to rising crime in Sweden, but an increasing number now agree with him.

Amid soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education, and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity, resentment in Sweden has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years.

And tonight is one of the worst night for violence in recent history as police report multiple gangs of masked youths rampaging across three major Swedish cities, setting cars on fire in what seems like a coordinated action.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the Swedish people, dealing with this violence; but also, prayers - and votes - that Swedish legislators get the message, and never, ever again allow unvetted immigration, which is turning Sweden into a massive funeral pyre for the Swedish people.

Elon Musk confirms Saudi Arabian wealth fund IS behind his plan to take Tesla private, and reveals he's been in talks with the foreign investors for nearly two years

Elon Musk has shared new details about Tesla's plans to go private.

Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund has approached Musk 'several times' about taking Tesla private, in conversations that stretch back as far as two years ago, Musk wrote in a blog post Monday.

Sovereign wealth funds are investment funds that are controlled by the government. They can invest globally in stocks, bonds, real estate and other areas.

It follows a shock announcement from the Tesla boss last week, when he tweeted that he was considering taking the firm private at $420 per share, adding that funding was 'secured.'

The Revenge Of Hillary: Senator Mark Warner Proposes The End Of Free Speech

Senate Democrats are circulating a proposal based upon their claim of Russian hacking that will completely takeover the internet and social media which has been leaked.

They are adopting the EU approach to silence political criticism. They claim it is necessary, just as the EU argued, that they must act to prevent Russian hackers and “restore” the people’s trust in our institutions, democracy, and the free press. They are proposing comprehensive GDPR-like data protection legislation following the EU.

They are calling it a proposal for “Regulation of Social Media and Technology Firms,” and the draft was created by Sen. Mark Warner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the most peaceful, powerful, and responsible way possible, this legislation must be stopped in its tracks.

Paul Craig Roberts Blasts Mueller's 'Weaponization' Of The Law

Robert Mueller is supposed to be investigating Russiagate, which has been shown to be a hoax concocted by former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI director James Comey, and current deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. As Russiagate is a hoax, Mueller has not been able to produce a shred of evidence of the alleged Trump/Putin plot to hack Hillary’s emails and influence the last presidential election.

Mueller chose Paul Manafort as a target, hoping that faced with fighting false charges, Manafort would make a deal and make up some lies about Trump and Putin in exchange for the case against him being dropped. But Manafort stood his ground, forcing Mueller to go forward with a false case.

10 Numbers That Prove That America's Current Financial Condition Is A Horror Show

America’s long-term “balance sheet numbers” just continue to get progressively worse. Unfortunately, since the stock market has been soaring and the GDP numbers look okay, most Americans assume that the U.S. economy is doing just fine.

But the stock market was soaring and the GDP numbers looked okay just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008 as well, and we saw how that turned out. The truth is that GDP is not the best measure for the health of the economy. Judging the U.S. economy by GDP is basically like measuring the financial health of an individual by how much money he or she spends, and I will attempt to illustrate that in this article.

If I went out right now and got a whole bunch of new credit cards and started spending money like there was no tomorrow, would that mean that my financial condition had improved?

No, in fact it would mean that my long-term financial condition just got a whole lot worse.

Ben Carson: We Called Ancient Civilizations Heathens Because They Sacrificed Babies, But We Abort Them

Dr. Ben Carson has a way of putting things in perspective that endears him to pro-life activists. The neurosurgeon and the author of six best-selling books makes another compelling point about the issue of abortion that is sure to have everyone who opposes abortion concurring.

He pointed out how ancient civilizations have been criticized for the brutal practices of human sacrifice and child sacrifice — but he wonders if modern society isn’t “guilty of the same thing” because we have legalized abortion.

“Well, it’s interesting that we sit around and call other ancient civilizations heathen because of human sacrifice but aren’t we actually guilty of the same thing?” said Dr. Carson in reference to a question about abortion. “The good thing is the American populace is moving closer and closer to understanding that abortion is murder. Every year we’re getting better on that regard.”

'My great uncle's bones are lying at the bottom of pearl harbor': NFL fans BURN their merchandise in disgust over anthem protests

Dozens of upset NFL fans are boycotting their teams and burning their expensive memorabilia in response to players choosing to sit or kneel during the national anthem on Sunday.

More than 200 players in the league knelt or sat down during the national anthem following President Donald Trump's controversial comments about the NFL where he called for players who protested to be fired.

Pittsburgh Steelers fans are even more upset with the team after all of the players except for one stayed inside the locker room during the singing of the Star-Spangled Banner.

In a video shared to YouTube, Robert Williams of Texas, burned over $1,000 worth of Steelers gear while slamming his favorite team.

Were German Nazis and Soviet Socialists the Same?

Many American self-proclaimed right-wingers seriously assert that the German Nazis were all socialists, simply because “Nazi” is short for ”Nationalsozialismus”, which translates as “National Socialism”. Therefore, they make a conclusion that the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany were ideologically the same.

Sadly, this is the level of political and historical discourse many people are at at the moment.

German Fascism/Nazism and Soviet Socialism were the polar opposites
The economy of the Third Reich was based on privately owned industries and banking institutions, with the strong government instrumentalised to instill monopoly over political processes, to crush dissent and to engage people in corporate solidarity through propaganda. >>>
The Soviet Union, in contrast, didn’t have private ownership of the means of production, meaning that all the farms and all the industrial assets were collectively owned, with centralised government redistributing surplus income, investing it into schools, healthcare, and other institutions that were meant to benefit regular people>>>

A trove of documents released by the city of Memphis late last week appear to show that its police department has been systematically using fake social media profiles to surveil local Black Lives Matter activists, and that it kept dossiers and detailed power point presentations on dozens of Memphis-area activists along with lists of their known associates.

No name is more prevalent in the documents than that of 32-year old Franklin, who has become a veteran organizer with the Memphis Coalition of Concerned Citizens and Black Lives Matter causes over the past few years. It’s “saddening” and “a little scary at times,” he told the Guardian, while finding a touch of humor in it too. “Doing all that for this ol’ poor black guy from south Memphis,” Franklin laughed.

White Privilege? White man gets 15 years in prison for placing bacon in Mosque; Black woman who tortured white male - and live-streamed it on Facebook - gets four years probation

The state attorney's office serving Brevard and Seminole counties said Michael Wolfe was sentenced to 15 years in prison followed by 15 years of probation after he pleaded guilty Tuesday. The sentence had a hate crime enhancement.

The 37-year-old was sentenced as a habitual offender. Titusville police arrested Wolfe in January 2016 after the New Year's Day vandalism. A surveillance video showed him smashing lights, cameras and windows with a machete.

Bacon was left by the front door. Consumption of pork and pork products made from pork is forbidden in Islam.

A Chicago woman who live-streamed video of the racially charged beating of a teen with mental disabilities pleaded guilty Friday to a hate crime and was sentenced to four years of probation.

Brittany Covington, 19, has been in custody since her arrest in January.

How did an aircraft thief takeoff without a license or clearance? Here’s what experts believe.

Experts are trying to determine exactly how a suicidal baggage handler was able to hijack an empty Alaska Airlines plane from Seattle airport and perform advanced stunt maneuvers before crashing to his death.
The first part was as simple as climbing into the cockpit and flicking a switch. The spectacle that followed was another story.
“They don’t necessarily use a key so there’s a switch that they use to start the aircraft,” National Transportation Safety Board official Debra Eckrote said Saturday as she spoke with media about the theft of Horizon Air Q400.
The thief was able to taxi the plane down the runway and takeoff without clearance from air traffic controllers.

Hispanic restaurant owner recipient of death threats, outrage mob after hosting Jeff Sessions

A Hispanic restaurant owner in Houston was forced to shut down his eatery’s social media presence after his established faced a barrage of online hate and negative reviews for hosting Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
What are the details?
On Friday, El Tiempo Catina posted a picture of Sessions posing with the son of restaurant co-owner Dominic Laurenzo after Sessions finished his meal of fajitas, according to KTRK-TV. Sessions visited the restaurant after meeting with federal prosecutors about violent crime and illegal immigration.
The restaurant said it was an “honor” to serve the top law enforcement officer in the nation, a distinction that was apparently out-of-line the restaurant quickly learned.
The backlash against Laurenzo, his restaurant, and his family was so swift that he decide to deactivate all social media channels for the restaurant. Some critics even hurled death threats at his family.

Two North Carolina ferry workers suspended without pay after flying Trump 2020 flag

North Carolina’s ferry system suspended a boat captain and a crew member for one week after they hoisted a flag supporting the re-election of President Donald Trump.
What happened?
It happened after a passenger on the MV Frisco Ferry took a photo of a “Trump 2020” flag flying on the mast below the U.S. flag and even with the North Carolina flag, the Associated Press reported.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation launched an investigation after the flag photo was posted on Twitter on July 27.
According to reports, the passenger tweeted: “Is this appropriate? I don’t think so!” The man later deleted the tweet, saying he made his point.
Ferry Division spokesman Tim Hass told news media that placing campaign materials on a state-owned vessel is inappropriate. The names of the employees suspended for a week were not released.
