Flake Supports Dem Demand For Notes From Trump-Putin Meeting

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says the White House needs to explain what, if any deal, was agreed to privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a summit in Finland.

“The White House ha[d] better get out in front of this because the Russians are talking about it, and they’re going to start characterizing it among their partisans,” Flake said. “They’re going to define it before we do. And the problem is there’s so little trust of our president now among our allies.”

NASA Launches Online Toolkit To Promote Commercial Use Of Satellite Data

WASHINGTON: NASA has launched an online toolkit to make it easier for users to find, analyse and utilise the most relevant satellite data for their research, business projects or conservation efforts.

The "Remote Sensing Toolkit" provides a simple system that quickly identifies relevant sources based on user input, NASA said in a statement on Thursday.

The toolkit is designed to help users search for data, as well as ready-to-use tools and code to build new tools.

"This new tool makes finding and using NASA satellite data easier than ever before, and we hope it sparks innovation among the entrepreneurial community and leads to further commercialisation of NASA technology and benefits people across the world," said Daniel Lockney, NASA''s Technology Transfer programme executive.

"Our mission to bring NASA technology down to Earth is expanding with the release of this remote sensing toolkit," Mr Lockney said.

Egypt sarcophagus: Mystery black tomb opened in Alexandria

A mysterious ten foot (three-metre) long black sarcophagus has been opened in Alexandria, found on the northern coast of Egypt and founded by the legendary leader of the same name.

The 6.5ft (two metre) high coffin was first discovered earlier this month and unearthed in recent days.

The 30-ton (27,000 kg) tomb was found buried 16ft (five metres) beneath the ground of the city.

Egyptologists pried open the black granite sarcophagus earlier today to reveal three decomposed bodies.

The stone coffin was also filled with sewage water, which is believed to have increased the rate of decomposition.

Nearly 40 Million Americans Are Still On Food Stamps

If the U.S. economy is “doing well”, then why are almost 40 million Americans still on food stamps? That number is almost exactly where it was at the end of the last recession, and supposedly we have made so much progress since that time. Of course any progress that has been made has been extremely uneven. Earlier today, I wrote about how the gap between the rich and the poor in this country is the biggest that it has been since the 1920s. For years, the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing program pumped “hot money” into the financial markets, and that was an enormous blessing to the top 1 percent. But meanwhile tens of millions of average families have continued to struggle and the middle class has continued to decline. In the U.S. today, 66 percent of all of our jobs pay less than 20 dollars an hour, and close to 40 million Americans rely on the federal government to feed them every month.

The Gap Between The Rich And The Poor In The United States Hasn’t Been This Large Since The 1920s

The rich have been getting richer and the poor have been getting poorer for so long in America that it seems like it has always been this way. But it hasn’t. In fact, between the late 1920s and the early 1970s the gap between the wealthy and the poor actually steadily got smaller. And when I was growing up in the 1980s, it seemed like everyone was middle class, but now those days are long gone. A very small sliver of society at the very top of the food chain truly is “living the high life”, while most of the rest of us are deeply struggling.

Oh, no, he said. He just meant confiscation among the civilian population. I replied that then we wouldn’t be a civilian population any longer. We’d be a nation of sheep.

Central Banks Are Using The Trade War To Hide Their Direct Influence On Stocks

The facade will end when balance sheet cuts expand to a point at which buybacks cannot keep up and the slack in markets grows too fast. Or when stock buyback cash runs out (probably by the end of this year). The trade war can and will cause various problems within the global economy, but the greater cause of fiscal distress will always be central banks. They are to blame for any future crisis.

Rep. Maxine Waters urges counter-demonstrators to stay away from planned far-right protest at her office

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles) has made a reputation of being one of President Trump’s most outspoken critics, and has even told people to “push back” on administration officials they spot in public. Now, Waters may have some rowdy critics of her own to contend with.

The Oath Keepers, a far-right anti-government group that purports to have many veterans as members, has said that they will be protesting outside Waters’ district office in South Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon. Calling Waters a “protest terrorist inciter,” the group, publicized the planned gathering on Twitter and said they intended to “stand against terrorism, stand for freedom of speech and association, in support of ICE/Border Patrol as they enforce constitutional immigration laws.”

In Defense of Trump With Putin

For 18 months, Trump has sought to develop a personal relationship with Putin unlike any relationship that any modern American president has had with him or his predecessors. The Democrats and Republican never-Trumpers doubt Trump’s bona fides and even his intellect. "Who could cut a deal with a monster?" they have bellowed.

Make no mistake; Putin is a monster. He has invaded Ukraine, bombed rebels in Syria, shored up fanatics in Iran, imprisoned political opponents on false charges and stolen billions from Russian oligarchs and the Russian people.

To this litany of criminality, Trump has wisely asked: How have any of his monstrosities harmed the United States? Answer: None of this is morally sound, and all of it is profoundly unlawful, but none of it has harmed us.

This realization has led Trump – in defiance of the advice from his own secretary of state, CIA director and national security adviser – to try to understand Putin and to negotiate with him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo for Judge Napolitano's brilliant assessment here.

Lisa Page Busts FBI Brass, Clinton Emails Went To China

Joint House committee hearings concerning Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and their possible political bias that may have influenced the harassment of Donald Trump and his campaign has revealed interesting information.

During closed-door sessions in front of the house, she revealed reams of interesting information, much of it outing top FBI officials or accusing them of misconduct. Indeed, some of the information she provided suggests that there is an ongoing bureau-wide ‘criminal intelligence’ cover-up of the 33,000 missing emails from the Hillary Clinton server. It almost seems like Page is afraid of being the scapegoat left holding the bag, so she’s come clean before that can happen.

During questioning in front of the House, Lisa Page, who was involved in an affair with Federal Bureau of Investigation Agent Peter Strzok, tossed former director James Comey and deputy director Andrew McCabe, her former lover, Bill Priestap, and more under the bus, according to federal sources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Holy crud, folks: if these allegations prove true, this could be the "smoking gun" on Hillary Clinton, worthy of a trial on high crimes and misdemeanors against her country.

Butina was charged with conspiracy to act as an agent of the Russian Federation and is being held without bond.

Trump: ‘Reckless’ media pushing for ‘major confrontation with Russia that could lead to war’

Donald Trump says that recent hysteria whipped up by the “Fake News Media” about his summit with Vladimir Putin shows that the US press is eager for a “major confrontation” with Russia, one that could even lead to war.
“The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that I’ll probably have a good relationship with Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!” the US president tweeted on Thursday.

BANKRUPT CHICAGO PONDERS UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME, OBAMA SINGS HALLELUJAH

Socialist fools are giving high fives and singing hallelujah as a Chicago alderman seeks a "free money" trial.

The Intercept reports Chicago May be the Largest US City to Try Universal Basic Income.

Chicago Alderman Ameya Pawar is worried about the future.

He is concerned that a coming wave of automation could put millions of people out of work and result in more extreme politics.

Pointing to investments in autonomous vehicles by companies like Tesla, Amazon, and Uber, Pawar observed that long-haul trucking jobs, historically a source of middle-class employment, may become obsolete. More people out of work means more political polarization, says Pawar.”We have to start talking about race and class and geography, but also start talking about the future of work as it relates to automation. All of this stuff is intertwined.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do agree with Pawar that the nature of work is changing, fundamentally, exponentially, and right the heck now.

But my question to him would be, why not educate youngsters, and retrain people, for the jobs which will actually exist, in the next decade of so?!?

That seems to make far greater sense, economically and financially, rather than creating a permanent underclass of American citizens.

GALLUP SHOWS HOW MUCH AMERICANS REALLY CARE ABOUT THE "SITUATION WITH RUSSIA"

While ever-hope-filled expectations among the left are for a 'blue wave' in the Mid-term elections, we suspect things may not turn out quite as planned given the last week's "crisis". Even before President Trump had set foot in Helsinki, the left and the media were banging the drums of war against "the thug" Putin and how he would trump Trump, and once the press conference furore was over, all hell broke loose as the left-leaning world attempted to out-signal one another's virtue as to the "treasonous", "surrender" that had occurred.

So much so - in fact - that the internet became 'full' of "Trump" and "Treason" chatter - more so even than when he joked in July 2016 about Russia having Hillary's missing 30,000 emails.

Once again - the "Russia, Russia, Russia" cries drowned out any sane discussion of the end of cold war 2.0.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that whatever tenuous grip on reality the Democrats may have had in times past, has abandoned them completely, ahead of the midterms.

ISRAEL PASSES JEWISH-ONLY 'NATIONAL SELF-DETERMINATION' LAW DESPITE OUTCRY

The Israeli Knesset has approved the 'nation-state bill' that promotes Jewish-only settlements, downgrades Arab language status and limits the right to self-determination to Jews. Arab MPs chided the law as racist.
The bill, which has the status of a basic law (approximately the same as a constitutional law in countries with a written constitution), was passed overnight to Thursday with 62 votes in favor and 55 against after hours of fierce argument and debate. It will now come into force as soon as it's published in the Knesset's Official Gazette.

The law, which had been in the works since 2011, has sparked a wave of protests, which spilled over the Israeli border and angered the influential Jewish diaspora in the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The passage of this bill sets the stage for a complete annexation of Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, and by any means necessary, including assassinations.

It is no accident that two days ago, the following article appeared ini the timesofisrael.com Israeli Army told to prepare for a large-scale military operation in Gaza

The drop-dead date is Friday of this week, and the Israeli government sent an ultimatum to Hamas to stop sending incendiary kites into Israel; of course, even if Hamas complies, one can fully expect a false flag, burning kite incident to speed up the campaign as of tomorrow.

THIS BOT TWEETS PHOTOS AND NAMES OF PEOPLE WHO BOUGHT 'DRUGS' ON VENMO

On Tuesday, Motherboard reported on a project called Public By Default, in which a researcher took publicly available data on Venmo transactions, and was then able to identify granular aspects of users’ lives, including a married couple going to the vet, shopping at Walmart, and ordering particular takeout food.

With that project, the researcher did not publicly release her dataset, and only reported the anonymized findings. Now, a separate programmer has gone in the opposite direction. A new bot called “Who’s buying drugs on Venmo” tweets the usernames and photos of Venmo users who have marked their transaction with a particular drug keyword or emoji.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot begin to characterise the "creep factor" this data aggregation brings to the table; the question that must be asked, however, is what other sites make data access vulnerable in this way?!?

ZUCKERBERG WARNS BREAK-UP OF FACEBOOK WILL LEAD TO CHINESE TECH DOMINANCE

Calls to break up Facebook in order to even out the playing field for competitors would result in a Chinese tech companies filling the void, said the social network’s co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.
He pointed to the fact that the Chinese firms which will likely step in and dominate don’t have traditional American values.

“I think you have this question from a policy perspective, which is, ‘do we want American companies to be exporting across the world?’” Zuckerberg said in an interview with technology news website Recode. “I think that the alternative, frankly, is going to be the Chinese companies.”

The social media tycoon added: “I think you can bet that, if the government here is worried about — whether it’s election interference or terrorism — I don’t think Chinese companies are going to want to cooperate as much and aid the national interest there.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Values", Mr. Zuckerberg?!?

Are you speaking, please, about the "values' you exhibited in trying to swing the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton?!?

Facebook has a number of compeditors; I just hope that one of them gets big enough to confront you professionally, and calls you out for attempting to influence elections in the future.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CAR WASH MOGUL TO PAY $4.2 MILLION FOR CHEATING 800 WORKERS

A Southern California car wash mogul cited for cheating more than 800 workers and destroying evidence will pay $4.2 million in back wages and penalties after a two-year court battle with federal authorities.

Vahid David Delrahim, of Los Angeles, failed to pay his workers minimum wage or overtime at a dozen car washes in Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Ventura counties, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

A consent decree approved this week by U.S. District Court Judge Fernando Olguin orders Delrahim to pay $1.9 million in back wages and another $1.9 million in damages to the workers. In addition, he is fined $400,000 in civil penalties.

“This landmark case sends a powerful message that the Department of Labor will use strong law enforcement and litigation tools to protect employees and level the playing field for law-abiding employers,” said Juan Coria, the wage and hour division’s acting regional commissioner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(sigh) The ability to be evil, and successfully profit from employee ignorance, appears to know no boundaries in this country.

WELLS FARGO CAUGHT IN YET ANOTHER SCANDAL

Given the seemingly unceasing stream of scandal that has flowed out of Warren Buffett's favorite bank, Wells Fargo, it's hardly surprising that after doing everything from illegally repossessing the cars of American soldiers to fraudulently "cross-selling" credit cards and other products to millions of customers, the bank is now being called out for adding opaque products to the accounts of hundreds of thousands of customers - for services like pet insurance and legal services - without first explaining how to use them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having an industrial strength, Jean-Luc Picard double face-palm, upon reading this; the leadership here at Wells Fargo appears to be pathologically incapable of treating their clients honestly and honorably.

Were I a client of Wells Fargo right now, I would close my account right now.

TRADE WAR WITH CHINA MORPHS INTO CURRENCY WAR: BIGGEST LOSER IS THE EU

Those who think "trade wars are good and easy to win" need to stop and reflect on currency wars.

Trump's "logic" rests on the notion that China has a huge trade surplus and the US can hurt China more than China can hurt the US.

Such logic is seriously misguided.

Trade is not a zero sum game. One does not gain by losing less. Losing is losing.
Yes, Trump is correct that the US can place more tariffs on Chinese goods than China can place on US goods. However, Trump cannot ignore US farmers, but the unelected leaders in China can suppress all dissent.
The US dollar floats, the Renmimbi (Yuan) doesn't. Thus, China can manipulate it currency, albeit with risks of capital flight, to mitigate some or all of US tariffs.
Currency charts can be confusing. Sometimes up is down and sometimes down is up, It depends on which currency is fist. The lead chart shows a 7.4% decline in the yuan vs the US dollar since April 16.

Meanwhile the dollar index itself has advanced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump has a history of being an incredible businessman; why he is accepting such lousy advice in the instance of these tariffs is utterly beyond me.

Nicaragua forces violently retake symbolic city

Nicaraguan national police and armed pro-government civilians laid siege Tuesday to and then retook a symbolically important neighborhood that has recently become a center of resistance to President Daniel Ortega's government.

Government forces began advancing on the Monimbo neighborhood of Masaya city before dawn and had largely regained control of it by the afternoon for the first time since massive protests against Ortega's government began in mid-April.

Youths fired homemade mortars from behind barriers of stacked paving stones pried from streets lined by single-story homes and artisan workshops in the town about 16 miles southeast of the capital, Managua.

But they were overwhelmingly outgunned by government loyalists who within hours had advanced to the heart of the neighborhood and began posting videos on social media of themselves firing semiautomatic rifles into the air in celebration.

Survivors of the deadliest mass shooting in US history are expressing their outrage with MGM Resorts International after the company sued the surviving victims of the shooting, claiming it has "no liability of any kind" in the Oct. 1 massacre, USA Today reports. An MGM spokeswoman said the company has been "focused on the recovery of those impacted by the shooting" while also claiming that the attack was "unforeseeable."

"The unforeseeable events of October 1st affected thousands of people in Las Vegas and throughout North America," MGM Resorts spokeswoman Debra DeShong said in a statement.

Family's $500K inheritance seized by U.S. border officials

An Ottawa man acting as executor of a will says TD Canada Trust gave him "faulty advice" to mail $500,000 in bank drafts to family members in the U.S. — a move that caught the attention of U.S. border officials, who seized the money.

Almost a year later, the money is still stuck at the border. Executor David Saikaley worries the family members may never see their inheritance.

I trusted the bank. I thought they were experts
- David Saikaley , executor of will
"It's like this money has fallen into a black hole," said Saikaley.

He was in a rush to send the money, because one beneficiary's health is quickly deteriorating, and he needs to pay a mounting pile of medical bills.

Maxine Waters Fears "Armed Protests" As Oath Keepers Descend On Los Angeles

California Democrat Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of possible "armed protests" by the Oath Keepers organization, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that has conducted armed protests across the country.

The group, founded by Yale Law graduate Stuart Rhodes, bills itself as an association of non-partisan current and former military officers, cops and first responders and notably provided disaster relief to Texas, Louisiana and Puerto Rican hurricane victims. They also have a policy to physically remove any white supremacists from their rallies - but they do like their guns.

On Tuesday, the group issued a "call to action" against Waters, urging members to prepare for as many as several weeks of protests in the Los Angeles area.

Mexico's next government to weigh legalizing drugs

Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has given his future interior minister "carte blanche" to explore the possibility of legalizing drugs in a bid to curb violent crime, she said Tuesday.

Olga Sanchez Cordero, a former Supreme Court judge tapped to lead the interior ministry, drew applause when she made the comment at a university seminar on addressing brutal violence fueled by Mexico's drug cartels, the biggest suppliers to US consumers of cocaine, heroin and other narcotics.

It was one of her first public events since Lopez Obrador, a leftist widely known as "AMLO," won a landslide victory in Mexico's July 1 election with a promise of sweeping change in a country fed up with crime and corruption.

Donald Trump: No Confidence in Intelligence Led by Brennan, Clapper, Comey

President Donald Trump said that he respected the intelligence agencies but not the former prominent figures who made their careers into criticizing his presidency.

“It’s been terrible,” Trump told CBS anchor Jeff Glor, citing the names of former CIA director John Brennan, former director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, Former Director of the National Security Agency Michael Hayden, former FBI director James Comey, as well as prominent FBI agents Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok.

The president responded to a question from Glor about whether or not he felt that former intelligence agents were “out to get him.” Trump said that he had difficulty trusting their judgement, as they stood vehmently against him.

“Certainly I can’t have any confidence in the past,” Trump said, citing the “all of the shenanigans that have gone on” in the intelligence community under former President Barack Obama.

“Very hard to have confidence in that group,” he added.

Mansour: If You Think U.S. Intelligence Is Never Wrong, I Have Some Yellowcake for You

The remonstrations of history are rarely heeded in moments of mass hysteria, and the current frenzy to punish Russia for “stealing” the election from Hillary Clinton is no different.

While it’s nice to see the Party of Alger Hiss finally take America’s side in a conflict with Russia, the Democrats’ new bellicosity seems a bit cynical. As Ann Coulter mused, it would have been nice to have “this fighting spirit about 50 years ago when the Soviet Union sought total world domination and Stalin’s spies were crawling through the U.S. government.” But, hey, I’m old enough to remember when Democrats believed the greatest threat to world peace was “climate change.” At least now they’re not tilting at windmills!

But before these new Cold Warriors and their neocon fellow travelers lead us into a crusade based on an FBI report about a computer server the bureau never got to inspect, perhaps we should consider the track record of U.S. intelligence in times of war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let s not forget the US intelligence agencies totally missed the Soviet Union's plans to invade Afghanistan, not to mention the collapse of the USSR itself.

And the FBI still insists Vince Foster committed suicide.

Rand Paul Savages John Brennan as ‘Most Biased, Bigoted, Unhinged CIA Director Ever’ (VIDEO)

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) savaged former CIA Director John Brennan Wednesday morning in a Fox News appearance.

The Kentucky Senator called John Brennan the most biased, bigoted, unhinged Director of the CIA we’ve ever had in response to Brennan’s latest attack on President Trump labeling the Putin summit performance “treasonous.”

“John Brennan started out his adulthood by voting for the Communist Party presidential candidate,” Rand Paul said. “He’s now ending his career by showing himself to be the most biased, bigoted, over-the-top, hyperbolic sort of unhinged director of the CIA we’ve ever had.”

Mad Maxine Follower: South Dakota Police/FBI Arrest Antifa Activist With Guns and Extensive Bomb-making Material…

When Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters demanded the advancement of political violence, many began warning she was lighting a fuse for a resurgence of activity similar to the Weather Underground bombings. As if on cue, a few days later former domestic political terrorist Bill Ayers surfaced and began immediately supporting the same.

As with the historic reference points, these dangerous left-wing provocations lead to a predictable conclusion. Quite simply, democrats support political violence. Former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, famously told the U.S. media that she supported the anarchist and Occupy movement: “God Bless these people“. In 2018 the “Occupy” movement is rebranded in the “ANTIFA” movement. It is all the same ideology.

James Comey Goes Nuclear Putin Summit

Because we’ve not yet heard enough from James ‘the Leaker’ Comey, we’ve been treated to yet more self-aggrandizing tweets in the last 72 hours that make the president’s seem a bit tame by comparison. Comey blasted Trump after the Putin summit calling for voters to give control to Democrats. This from an alleged ‘Republican’ official. But what’s more inane about his comments are the faux patriotism, as if Comey didn’t lie under oath, use the FBI to collude with the Hillary campaign and aid Obama in illegal monitoring of a presidential campaign. Ironically, that’s the sort of stuff we might expect of the Putin regime.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Former FBI Director James Comey said that “all who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats” and that Republicans have been “incapable” in a Tuesday tweet.
