One Of The Most Dangerous Volcanoes In North America Is Roaring To Life

More than 25 million people live in the vicinity of North America’s 2nd-highest volcano, and in recent weeks this volcano has been steadily rumbling and has been spewing out massive amounts of black smoke and ash.

Denmark's Prime Minister says "I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism, ... therefore I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy"

Bernie Sanders has long referred to himself as a socialist rather than a member of the Democratic Party, which has naturally lead to a lot of questions about what socialism means to him. He consistently references the social models of the Nordic states — and especially Denmark — as his idea of what democratic socialism is all about. But in a speech Friday evening at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said that while he's flattered to see Denmark discussed in a widely-watched US presidential debate he doesn't think the socialist shoe fits.

Half of 25-year-olds live with parents, 1 million college students ‘Sugar Babies’, 31% of adjunct profs in poverty: Demanding obvious economic solutions yet???

*hyperlinks live at source*

American so-called “higher education” does exactly what it should: prepare college students for the real world. On 2015 Earth, students must learn the Orwellian condition that what we use for money is created as debt, producing an economy adding negative numbers forever with “developed” “modern” nations now $50 trillion in debt, the top 1% having more assets than the 99% combined, and the US top 1% has more assets than the bottom 90%.

Of course, the obvious solution is to stop creating what we use for money as a negative number owed to privately-owned banks, and have government create debt-free money for the direct payment of public goods and services. A preliminary cost-benefit analysis shows each and every US household would near-instantly achieve millionaire status with this upgrade.

Anti-New York Times / 11/1 Russian Plane Crash?

We here at The Anti-New York Times have always been averse to jumping to hasty conclusions. But we have no qualms about quickly forming hypotheses based on preliminary data, possible motives, means, and known historical precedent.

With regard to the Halloween crash over Egypt of Russian Airbus A321, operated by Metrojet, we hereby present some pieces of the puzzle that appear, at this point - to lead to a 'conspiracy theory' involving 'the usual suspects' (cough-cough).

Webmaster addition: I reject the obvious propaganda that ISIS shot down the Russian aircraft, and am still leaning towards failure of the rear pressure bulkhead as the cause of the accident. But this article makes a suggestion that should not be dismissed out of hand which is that the plane was bombed by CIA/Mossad as "punishment" for Russia's success in Syria.

FORMER FRENCH PRESIDENT NICOLAS SARKOZY'S PHONES ARE SEIZED IN £35M COCAINE SMUGGLING PROBE

Mr Sarkozy was on the plane at least three times between December 2012 and February 2013, for flights from Paris to Bordeaux where he was being questioned over a separate corruption scandal.? A judge ordered two mobile phones belonging to Nicolas Sarkozy to be examined in relation to a £35million cocaine smuggling scandal, it has been revealed today. The former French president’s name appears in court papers about an attempt to fly 680kg of the drug out of the Dominican Republic.

Russian plane crash: Airliner broke up in the air above Sinai desert: live

A video is circulating online, which is being reported as showing the plane exploding mid air.

But The Telegraph's team have spoken to experts who are doubtful about its authenticity. And it is not being circulated on the usual Islamic State propaganda sites, casting further doubt on suggestions it was filmed by Isil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, we can establish at least one fact; that propagandists are already shamelessly trying to exploit this tragedy for their own agendas.

Bombshell! Europe Drops Charges Against Edward Snowden, Offers Asylum And Protection

This week, the European Parliament voted to offer Edward Snowden asylum and protection and drop all criminal charges against him. When at one time most of the world was bullied by the US government into pressing charges against Snowden and forcing him into exile, the entire European continent has now officially given him a pass.

Thursday’s 285 – 281 vote officially recognized Snowden as an “international human rights defender” and ensured that he would be free from arrest within European borders.

How to avoid the curse of ransomware — software that forces you to pay money to unlock your computer

Every file on Danielson’s computer was replaced with a ransom note explaining his files were no longer his and if he wanted them back, he’d have to follow the provided link where he could pay to get the key to unlock his files.

His only thought? “Damn it. I’m screwed,” which was about the same advice he received from an IT expert he used for work, and Best Buy’s Geek Squad.

Both essentially told him, “pay up or wipe your computer clean.” The ransom note even told him not to bother buying anti-malware software because his computer was beyond saving.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The NSA claims they cannot find these guys. Can't they follow the ransom? And the FBI's official recommendation (no kidding) is to pay up. Which raises the suspicion that ransomware, like civil forfeiture and traffic ticket quotas, are just another device by which a desperately broke US Government loots the people!

Another tranche of Hillary’s State Department emails were released on Friday, and while all the “journalists” just guffawed at all the charming ways in which Granny Cankles wrote about emojis, conservatives found an email showing just how little she cared about security in Libya.

FLASHBACK - Japan Airlines Flight 123

About 12 minutes after takeoff, at near cruising altitude over Sagami Bay, the aircraft's aft pressure bulkhead tore open due to a preexisting defect, stemming from a panel that had been incorrectly repaired after a tailstrike accident years earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this is what happened with flight 9268, which also suffered a tail strike and had repairs made to the rear pressure bulkhead.

Mike Rivero Interviews Canadian 'Thought Criminal' Arthur Topham, Who Faces 2 Years In Prison For "Hate Against Jews"

In case you missed it, here is Mike Rivero's Oct. 15th interview with Arthur Topham, currently on trial in Canada for alleged violations of their hate crime laws. Topham's trial began on Monday, October 26th and is scheduled to conclude on Friday, November 6th. On his site, Topham wrote "In essence this isn't just the trial of Arthur Topham based upon a politically motivated and spurious Sec. 319(2) Criminal Code of Canada 'Hate Propaganda' charge initiated by one of Canada's largest Zionist Jew lobby organization, B'nai Brith Canada. It's far more than that... The outcome of the trial will determine whether or not Canada is, in fact, a truly open and free democracy or a nation whose sovereignty and freedom has been compromised by the wilful, premeditated actions of foreign lobbyists inimical to the country as a whole. In other words Freedom of Speech will be on trial..."

Trump Promises To Care For Veteran's Physical & 'Invisible Wounds,' "Firing The Corrupt And Incompetent VA Executives Who Let Our Veterans Down"

Donald Trump has issued a campaign e-mail alert promising 'Veterans Administration Reforms That Will Make America Great Again.' The message dated 10/31 begins "The current state of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is absolutely unacceptable. Over 300,000 veterans died waiting for care. Corruption and incompetence were excused. Politicians in Washington have done too little too slowly to fix it. This situation can never happen again, and when Donald J. Trump is president, it will be fixed – fast. The guiding principle of the Trump plan is ensuring veterans have convenient access to the best quality care. To further this principle, the Trump plan will decrease wait times, improve healthcare outcomes, and facilitate a seamless transition from service into civilian life..."

Terrorists, non-state actors had no capacity to down Russian plane, security & aviation experts say

While the investigation into the causes of the Russian passenger jet crash over the Sinai Peninsula continues, civil aviation and security experts agree that theories that the plane was downed by a militant group can be ruled out, despite terrorists making such claims.

All 224 people on board the Kolavia airline’s flight from resort area Sharm El-Sheikh to Russia’s St. Petersburg died after the aircraft crashed in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Saturday. Experts are still decoding the flight recorders, and the Russian Air Transport Agency has said that there is no point in hypothesizing about the cause of the crash until there is reliable data on the circumstances.

Thought Crime Trial of Arthur Topham Underway in Canada

Back in 2007, an operative of the secretive and dangerous Jewish-Zionist organization, B’nai B’rith Canada, instigated a ‘hate speech’ complaint against Topham’s website under the notoriously draconian Section 13 law, which in effect made it illegal to express even truthful viewpoints online or in print about wrongdoing committed by Jewish people throughout history. “Truth is not a defense,” the thought crime defendants were told by quasi-judicial ‘human rights commissions’ reminiscent of Stalin’s rigged Soviet courts.

As Benghazi inquiry fades, Clinton still faces legal questions about emails

Hillary Clinton appears to have overcome an investigation of her role in the 2012 deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya, but she still faces a months-long FBI inquiry into the handling of sensitive information while she was secretary of state.

The FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, which opened its review this summer after classified information was found in emails transmitted over Clinton’s private email server, is under pressure to act quickly, as Clinton is in the midst of running for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is all feeling like theater. The FBI and DoJ are putting on a dog and pony show of being thorough in investigating Hillary's email, at the end of which they will declare nothing was found (a repeat of what they did during the investigation into murdered White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster).

Meanwhile...

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment! And now there is confirmation that Hillary did have a private "off the books" spy network, centered on Sidney Blumenthal, while she was secretary of state!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

And the longer the government and corporate media avoids this question, the more complicit they look!

The Latest: Co-pilot’s wife: He complained about plane

State-controlled NTV ran an interview Saturday with Natalya Trukhacheva, identified as the wife of co-pilot Sergei Trukachev. She said that a daughter “called him up before he flew out. He complained before the flight that the technical condition of the aircraft left much to be desired.”

An Egyptian official had previously said that before the plane lost contact with air traffic controllers the pilot had radioed and said the aircraft was experiencing technical problems and that he intended to try and land at the nearest airport.

Did Accident From 14 Years Ago Doom Russian Plane Over Egypt?

What does, however, jump out from this particular airplane’s record is an accident that it suffered on November 16, 2001 while landing at Cairo (while owned and operated by Middle East Airlines). As it touched down the nose was pointing at too high an angle and the tail hit the tarmac – heavily enough to cause substantial damage.

Tail strikes like this are not uncommon. The airplane was repaired and would have been rigorously inspected then and during subsequent maintenance checks. Nonetheless investigators who will soon have access to the Airbus’s flight data recorder will take a hard look at what is called the rear pressure bulkhead, a critical seal in the cabin’s pressurization system. Images from the wreckage in the Sinai show parts of the tail and rear fuselage near the site of this bulkhead lying clear of the rest of the debris, suggesting a possible break-up in flight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was an air crash in Japan some years ago which was caused by a faulty repair to the rear pressure bulkhead letting go at altitude.

As we know by now, the Soviet threat was a farce the western people – mostly the people of the US and Europe – were made to believe by a massive and continuous propaganda campaign, a western propaganda of lies – not unlike today’s anti-Russia, anti-China supra-multi-billion dollars Zionist-Anglo-Saxon media misinformation.

If Washington and its allies were sincere about a political resolution to the conflict then why don’t they reaffirm their commitment to the Geneva Communique?

Russia’s military intervention in Syria is proving a decisive turning point in stabilizing the government of Bashar al-Assad, while racking up serious defeats against the sundry extremist mercenary groups. That is the assessment of US top military officer General Joseph F Dunford. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Senate Armed Services Committee this week:

«The balance of forces right now are in Assad’s advantage».

Russian passenger jet crashes over Sinai Live updates

First official images from Sinai crash scene emerge:

Webmaster's Commentary: 


This photo interests me. We can see the vertical stabilizer has been peeled backwards from the fuselage, yet there are no signs of impact damage to the leading edge. This leaves us with two possibilities. The first is that the aircraft exceeded its normal maximum speed while diving and the vertical stabilizer failed under the excess loads. But what if the vertical stabilizer failed in normal flight? That would throw the aircraft instantly out of control leading to the crash sequence reported. If I were investigating this crash I would be taking a very careful look at the fasteners along that split seam.

911 Widow Kristen Breitweiser to Condi Rice: Here's Your 9/11 Smoking Gun

In response to your comment that you could personally "plead guilty" to not having imagined terrorists would use passenger aircraft as weapons?please stop lying.

As proof, I provide the "Iron Man" documents from the Asymmetrical Threats Division of Joint Forces Intelligence Command (JFIC), also known as DO5, whose task it was to track UBL from mid 1998-mid 2001.

I would first note that you were National Security Advisor to the President of the United States -- that means that you had pretty much access to anything and everything available regarding terrorist threats from groups like Al Qaeda.

Fourteen years later, everyone now knows about the summer of 2001 and the more than one dozen intelligence reports blinking red about an impending Al Qaeda terrorist attack. There was the August 6 PDB, FAA reports, CIA reports, DoD reports, and FBI reports -- all indicating and discussing terrorist cells inside the US planning attacks inside the US.
