Mitt Romney's wife had blind trust invested in Goldman Sachs' sex trafficking fund

Reuters reported that while there is no suggestion the Romneys knew about the investment, the disclosure highlights the difficulty for politicians and their families when they invest in blind trusts that are supposed to protect them from conflicts of interest and ethical questions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Democrats in Congress are pushing a bill to demand the last ten years of Trump's tax returns. But Trump does not do his own taxes, so even if the Congress is able to get those returns, it will be impossible to link anything found in them directly to Trump. It's just another fishing expedition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Normally I do not cover events like this, but I felt it needed pointing out that the Miss Universe pageant still has the bathing suit competition, unlike the Miss America pageant.

NAACP links earthquake signs in Oregon to white supremacy

A new city policy requiring public signs on brick buildings warning they might collapse in an earthquake is part of a long history of white supremacy aimed at forcing black people to move out of neighborhoods, the NAACP of Portland, Oregon, says.

The group on Thursday decried the policy affecting some 1,600 unreinforced masonry buildings that are on average 90 years old, many in areas with a predominantly black population, The Oregonian/OregonLive reports .

The policy “exacerbates a long history of systemic and structural betrayals of trust and policies of displacement, demolition, and dispossession predicated on classism, racism, and white supremacy,” the group said.

The Rise of the Great American Folk Hero

Without radio and television to keep them entertained, people of the 1800s told stories. And like the telephone game we all played as kids, each person retelling a story added their own embellishments to it. Most of these stories had to do with brave, independent men and women – some real, some fictional -- who were able to conquer their unknown and dangerous surroundings using only their wit and brawn. Over time, some of the better-loved folk characters became part of our culture and stories and tales about them grew. Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite American folk heroes.

Ancient Bronze-Age Prosthetic Hand Discovered In Switzerland

The notion of a cyborg has been alive in well in human history for millennia, or at least the discovery of a nearly-lifesized bronze cast prosthetic hand suggests.

Originally uncovered in 2017 near Lake Biel in Bern, Switzerland by treasure hunters using metal detectors, the bronze-cast hand was brought to the Bern Archaeological Service for review along with a bronze dagger and rib bone also uncovered at the site of the metal hand.

The Story Behind the Miranda Rights

Most people have heard some version of this phrase, even if it was just on one of the many procedural dramas on television, though some may have more hands-on experience with it. Some of those people will recognize this phrase as the “Miranda Rights” which police officers must “read” to suspects before being allowed to interrogate them. What most people don’t know is that the person to thank for this requirement was a career criminal and convicted rapist.

DONALD TRUMP SUFFERS SETBACK AS SENATE REJECTS HUNDREDS OF NOMINATIONS

This is Sedition and Treason pure and simple. The Deepstate is in full revolt against the American people,The US Constitution and The Billof Rights! This is getting uglier by the minute.

President Donald Trump has suffered a setback after the Senate knocked hundreds of nominations back to the White House. As the 116th Congress began on Thursday, the Senate sent back over 270 nominations from the previous session, as well as a host of foreign service nominees.

The development is an unexpected and unwanted headache for the Trump administration, which has previously been critical of the perceived lack of speed in approving nominations.

The Iconic Jacqueline Kennedy in 25 Photos

Jacqueline Kennedy was undeniably a role model to many women in the 1960s. Contrary to the belief of others, she was not an heiress, nor was she unfamiliar to hard work --- but she was a style icon for sure. What women of that era could relate most to was the strength she displayed during the wake when her husband, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated. The whole country was in need of reassurance and looked to her for it.

Trump Instructs Pentagon to Curb Watchdogs’ Access to Secret Military Reports

Transparency groups decry move as hindering the work of inspectors general.

President Trump, in a nationally televised Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, instructed acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan to withhold classified battlefield reports from inspectors general, a move that brought objections from transparency advocates.

“I can tell you [a] story when I got here about our military that I don’t even want to talk about,” Trump said. “We do these reports on our military. Some IG goes over there, and he goes over there and they do a report on every single thing. We’re fighting wars and they’re doing [a] report and releasing it to the public. The public means the enemy. Those reports should be private reports.”

The president continued: “Let them do a report, but they should be private reports and be locked up … [Giving the reports] out to the enemy is insane. And I don’t want it to happen anymore, Mr. Secretary. You understand that?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; if these reports were absolutely glowing, in terms the accomplishments of US troops, fighting on the ground in Afghanistan and elsewhere, would President Trump be as agitated as he appeared to be, Wednesday, on this issue?!?

I would suspect... probably not.

AFTER INTRODUCING MASS MIGRATION TO EUROPE, GERMANY NOW BRIBING FOREIGNERS TO LEAVE

The German government has mounted an aggressive campaign to encourage illegal migrants to leave - bribing them with free rent for a year in their home countries.

"Your country. Your future. Now!” read billboards in seven languages, plastered in nearly 2,500 locations across 80 German cities, reports the National Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'd laugh myself silly, looking at this "plan" to get immigrants to go home from Germany; the problem, after all the assurances from German officials that these immigrants would, in no way affect the lives of born Germans, will be stopping.

DHS RELEASES MORE THAN 2000 IMMIGRANTS CITING LACK OF DETENTION SPACE

The Department of Homeland Security will be releasing over 2000 migrants over the course of the next few weeks after facilities became packed full with border-crossing men, women, and children who seek refuge in the United States.

From Breitbart:

A DHS official confirmed to Breitbart News that the U.S. Border Patrol and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is releasing more than 2,000 family units caught at the U.S.-Mexico border, citing a lack of detention space.

The border-crossing adults and the children they arrived at the border with will be released and given a court date for an immigration hearing. The adults will be given ankle monitors, though the DHS official says the process of keeping track of border-crossers via ankle monitors is not effective.

According to the report at least four major border crossing locations have been inundated with migrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, let me get this straight; the DHS, rather than deporting illegal families to their countries of origin, are allowing these illegal immigrants to stay in the US until they have their court date, for which they most probably will never appear?!? And it is known that the ankle monitors can be broken rather easily, or taken off by someone who knows how?!?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?!?!?

BLOODY EVERYTHING!!

REPORT: USS COLE PLOTTER KILLED IN YEMEN

One of the masterminds behind a deadly attack on a US warship in Yemen more than 18 years ago was killed in that country earlier this week, according to a report published Friday, Anadolu Agency reports.

Jamel Ahmed Mohammed Ali al-Badawi, an al-Qaeda operative, is believed to have played a central role in the Oct. 12, 2000 bombing of the USS Cole in which 17 American sailors were killed.

US intelligence indicates al-Badawi was killed Tuesday in an airstrike in Ma’rib Governorate, CNN reported, citing an anonymous Trump administration official.

The strike took place when al-Badawi was reportedly driving alone. No collateral damage is currently known.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to remind our readers and listeners, during the Obama presidency, that the US and the world were told that military operatives in Pakistan killed a guy who might have somewhat looked like Bin Laden, but was not Bin Laden.

President obama announces Osama Bin Laden's death

Or if you crave a truly fact-centric version of Osama's death, try what appeared at WRH:

Osama Bin Laden: A Dead Nemesis perpetuated by the US government.

Now, this person, who allegedly put together the horror attack on the USS Cole MAY, or may not - be alive. Just please remember that, when you read stories like this. is that they need to be read with more than a grain of salt.

SCIENTISTS “HACK PHOTOSYNTHESIS” TO MAKE PLANTS MORE PRODUCTIVE

Plants are not as productive as they could be, and in a bid to help boost global food production, a team of scientists with backing from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and others are hacking photosynthesis.

If you remember way back to fifth grade when you learned the photosynthesis cycle, plants convert sunlight into energy and use that energy to collect carbon dioxide and water and turn it into sugar. However, there’s a glitch in the system, and plants end up spending a lot of energy getting rid of a toxic compound made when an enzyme called rubisco inadvertently collects oxygen. That process is called photorespiration, and it makes plants produce way less food than they otherwise could.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely suggest that the researchers, and scientists who came up with this process, and their families, should be forced to eat this biohacked food every day for at least a minimum of 2 years, with medical checks every 4 months, to insure that something in the process doesn't contribute to aggressive cancers, heart disease, diabetes, loss of sperm counts, etc., before they are EVER foisted off on to third world citizens.

I mean, come on, if the process is safe, and there is no harm in ingesting these products, shouldn't it be the developers of such a product who need to test it first?!

BOLSONARO UNVEILS MASS PRIVATIZATION PLAN FOR BRAZIL WHILE SLASHING TAXES FOR RICH AND WAGES FOR POOR

Ending his first week in office by quickly putting into action the far-right agenda he promoted during his campaign, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday unveiled economic proposals that critics says will worsen inequality across Brazil, putting corporate profits above the well-being of middle- and lower-class families.

Privatization of airports and seaports, tax cuts for the rich, pension cuts, and a minimum wage set lower than Bolsonaro's predecessor had planned were among the economic reforms the new president has in store for the country, as it moves toward what the new right-wing government calls a "minimal state."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds like he'll be good for the folks who hired this guy as President (the One Percenters), but pretty lousy for darned near everyone else in Brazil.

RUSSIAN ARRESTED BY FBI FOR EXPORTING RIFLE SCOPES & AMMO PRIMERS TO RUSSIA – COURT DOCUMENTS

A 39-year-old Russian citizen has been arrested in Saipan for attempting to export military-grade equipment, such as night-vision rifle scopes and ammunition primers, to Russia without obtaining a proper permit.
Dmitrii Makarenko was arrested by an FBI agent on Saturday, December 29 in the Northern Mariana Islands, a US territory in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The Russian national was taken into custody on an indictment filed in the Southern District of Florida Court back in June 2017.

The indictment alleges that Makarenko, reportedly a resident of the Russian Far East city of Vladivostok, and his 'co-conspirator' Vladimir Nevidomy, a resident of Florida, acted in concert to transfer military-grade equipment to Russia between April and November 2013.

Overall, Makarenko has been indicted on eight counts and is facing 45 years behind bars if found guilty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if these guys were "bargaining chips", to be used by the US government when the time was right, to catch up with a "higher grade" Russian operatives.

Before Germany’s Massive Hack, We Learned What Not to Do With Sensitive Stolen Information

Someone has been publishing a massive trove of sensitive personal information—including phone numbers, private chats, family photos, and documents—of dozens of German politicians in what some are calling “the biggest hacker attack” in the country’s history.

On Friday, the leak was the biggest news in Germany, and perhaps in all Europe. German authorities are investigating the incident, and victims are already speaking out about how it’s affecting them.

The leaks first attracted widespread attention in Germany, and subsequently around the world after news outlet RBB first reported on a Twitter account that spread the data. (Twitter has since suspended the account.) The person or people behind it had been posting links to the stolen data since early December, but apparently very few noticed until Thursday, after YouTube celebrity Simon Unge revealed he had been hacked too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The goals here may have been both hush money, and embarrassment for those whose systems got hacked.

But this action did remind the world to please, never, EVER store something on a computer which could be hacked, as it is very private data, and Keep communication vanilla.

Woman Tired Of Her Loud Neighbor Writes A Hilarious Letter To Him And Leaves Him A Cake At 4 AM

As much as many of us wish to have a peaceful place we can call our home, in the 21st century it’s not that easy to find a beautiful, peaceful and comfortable place to stay that is within your budget. So, just like the most of us, people get used to living in loud neighborhoods and buildings with paper thin walls. And even though you might think you got used to it, there are some neighbors that just don’t understand that blasting music at 3 am is not okay. Telling them to turn it down a notch is not an easy task so one woman found the best way to kindly ask her neighbor to turn the music down.

CHINA RELEASES FOOTAGE OF "MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS" DROPPED BY NUKE CAPABLE JET

On Friday China unveiled video from a successful test of its most powerful non-nuclear weapon, dubbed the "Mother of All Bombs" in reference to a weapon previously used by US forces in Afghanistan. The official Xinhua news agency published details of the weapon for the first time while calling it the "Chinese version of the 'Mother of all Bombs'".

It is reportedly 5-6 meters long and its massive weight means the delivery vehicle, in this case China's H-6K long range nuclear capable bomber, can only carry one at a time.

While China has denied that it is a thermobaric bomb — an explosive that uses oxygen in the surrounding air to generate a high-temperature explosion — its incredible size mimics the 22,000-pound GBU-43 Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) bomb that US forces dropped in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province targeting a jihadist hideout tunnel complex in April of 2017.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this demonstration, right before trade talks are supposed to start next week, was absolutely not accidental; this test was done now, so that people in the American government and military, understand that they have this weapon, and will not be afraid to use it, if the Chinese military sees the timing as right.
