Green Market Agorism

By Logan Marie Glitterbomb

Agorist theory has been enriched a lot since Samuel Edward Konkin III introduced the initial theory. Through the writings and work of visionaries such as Karl Hess, Ross Ulbricht, Satoshi Nakamoto, Defense Distributed, and Derrick Broze, we have seen agorism grow and expand in ways never thought possible both intellectually and in practice. And the practice will continue to grow and adapt as time goes on, circumstances change, new technologies emerge, etc., as it should...

As agorists, we talk often talk of the white, black, grey, and red markets but there is one market that is surprisingly absent yet increasingly relevant to the conversation: green markets. Now by green market, I don’t mean cannabis, alternative energies, or deceptive greenwashed consumerism. Rather green markets include...

Trump Generates More International Anger

Anger in Tripoli over Trump's 'reversal on Haftar'

In apparent reversal of US policy, Trump praises Haftar for fighting 'terrorism' and securing Libya's oil resources.

Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Libya's capital, Tripoli, on Friday after US President Donald Trump praised Libya's Khalifa Haftar amid a military assault by the renegade general to seize the capital.

A White House statement said Trump and Haftar spoke by phone on Monday "to discuss ongoing counterterrorism efforts to achieve peace and stability in Libya".

On April 4, Haftar and his forces launched an offensive against the country's internationally recognised government, which is based in Tripoli.

In their phone call, Trump "recognised Field Marshal Haftar's significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya's oil resources, and the two discussed a shared vision for Libya's transition to a stable, democratic political system."

Mueller and the 9/11 Cover Up

FLASHBACK 1/27/2018: Court Documents Show Mueller Involved in 9/11 Cover-up

Recently uncovered court documents related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s time as FBI Director show his lack of anything resembling credibility. The man who is responsible for investigating allegations of Trump/Russia collusion was involved in releasing deceptive statements that helped cover up a Saudi family’s involvement in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that shocked America and helped launch the modern surveillance state.

Mueller led the FBI from September 4, 2001 to September 4, 2013. One week after Mueller assumed his new job, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airliners, using three of them to destroy the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York and severely damage the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day and more than another 6,000 were injured, many of them later dying from their injuries.

Omar Barghouti: ‘Israel is outsourcing anti-BDS repression to the US’

On 10 April, Palestinian human rights activist and co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement Omar Barghouti was denied entry into the United States, despite having valid travel documents.

The move was quickly denounced by rights groups as a violation of free speech by the administration of President Donald Trump.

Barghouti was stopped at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and told he would not be allowed to board his flight to the US. He was expected to join a panel in Washington the following day. The campaigner was born in Qatar and has permanent resident status in Israel.

Barghouti joined the panel via a video conference call that was live-streamed on social media. He called for taking Palestinian non-violent resistance to the "global scene" amid failure by the international community to uphold Palestinian rights.

Trump Campaign: Time To Go After 'Liars' Who Started Witch Hunt

With the initial hyper-triggered shock of the moderately-redacted Mueller Report having washed across the cognitively dissonant liberal media and their zombified social media followers...

(for example: Former NYT's Jared Yates Sexton "All right. I just finished the Mueller Report. I'm going to combine the most shocking and important revelations in one thread. Long and short: there was collusion, there was obstruction, Donald Trump needs to be removed from office. Immediately... Trump and his cronies made a decision to put power and wealth above the country. They actively sought help in undermining our democratic process. They didn't report constant Russian contacts or offers to help. They're traitors. That's it. They're traitors.")

Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them.

THE TWO-PRONGED CONSPIRACY THEORY that has dominated U.S. political discourse for almost three years – that (1) Trump, his family and his campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, and (2) Trump is beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin — was not merely rejected today by the final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It was obliterated: in an undeniable and definitive manner.

The key fact is this: Mueller – contrary to weeks of false media claims – did not merely issue a narrow, cramped, legalistic finding that there was insufficient evidence to indict Trump associates for conspiring with Russia and then proving their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That would have been devastating enough to those who spent the last two years or more misleading people to believe that conspiracy convictions of Trump’s closest aides and family members were inevitable. But his mandate was much broader than that: to state what did or did not happen.

Spain: Election Authority Bans Anti-Mass Migration Populists from TV Debates

The populist leader vowing to “make Spain great again” has been axed from the only televised debate confirmed ahead of the election later this month.
The Atresmedia network was ordered to drop Vox leader Santiago Abascal from its debate after Spain’s Central Election Board ruled his appearance would not be “proportional” to votes cast for the party at elections in 2015, when the then only recently formed party failed to win representation in the national parliament.

Since then however, Vox has enjoyed a huge political breakthrough, becoming the third largest party at elections in Andalucia in December when it gained 11 per cent of the vote and 12 seats — far outperforming predictions it would win just five seats.

Now the party faces being excluded from an election debate for a vote where some polls predict they could finish in third place nationally, potentially becoming an important faction in the Spanish parliament and even a player in a future coalition government.

Hysteria Over School Safety Won’t Keep Us Safe

By James Bovard

Numerous Indiana elementary school teachers were shot in January as part of a “safe schools” training program. According to the Indiana State Teachers Association, sheriff deputies ordered teachers “into a room four at a time, told them to crouch down and then shot them execution-style with pellets in rapid succession,” leaving several of them bloodied and many of them screaming in terror. The teachers union is “is lobbying lawmakers to add [legislative] language prohibiting teachers from being shot with any sort of ammunition” during school safety drills, according to the Indianapolis Star.

The Indiana program was part of the school lockdown drills occurring across the nation spurred in part by a Colorado massacre that occurred twenty years ago on April 20...

Nunes Slams Mueller Report for Ignoring “Wide Range” of FBI Abuses

Ranking House Intelligence Committee member Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) slammed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report for ignoring the “wide range of abuses” committed by the FBI during its investigation of the Trump campaign.

In a statement released this afternoon, Nunes said the report made clear that the false allegations from the discredited Christopher Steele dossier about Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page played a major role in the appointment of the Special Counsel, along with the FISA applications used to spy on him.

President Trump: The Mueller report was an “illegally started hoax… total bulls**t”

For the past two years, President Donald Trump has maintained the entire Russian collusion investigation was nothing more than a witch hunt and has stood firm with millions of other good Americans who also knew they were being force-fed lies by corporate-controlled left-leaning media outlets who pushed a narrative perpetuated by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation which reportedly made nearly a dozen payments to former British spy and author of the infamously fake dossier Christopher Steele.

According to an NBC News report released in early August, the FBI released “71 pages” of correspondence between Steele and the bureau before the bureau abruptly terminated the working relationship on Nov 1 of 2016.

Insider: Is Trump Family Cult Behind Coming Armageddon?

Michael Berg, 32, a member of Chabad for four years,
believes that this cult's demented vision of world hegemony is
behind the rush to war with Russia. With Trump and Chabad-members
Jered & Ivanka Kushner in the White House, Chabad is in position to bring about the prophesied cataclysm that will usher in their Messianic rule.
We must consider the possibility the West has been hijacked by a
fanatical satanic cult whose tentacles include Freemasons, also Cabalists. Certainly, satanic possession best explains the irrational behavior of the West. We are still in real danger. A crazed religious cult wants to sink the ship and set humanity back 100 years.

How Has Former MI6 Spymaster Richard Dearlove Dodged Scrutiny Despite Links To Russiagate?

One of the figures involved in the Obama administration's "Russiagate" scandal who has largely avoided scrutiny is former MI6 spymaster Sir Richard Dearlove, who is intimately linked to several key players in what many now believe was a high-level Set-up against the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election.

Dearlove, who served as chief of MI6 from 1999 to 2004, had contact during the 2016 campaign with dossier author Christopher Steele. He is also a close colleague of Stefan Halper, the alleged FBI and CIA informant who established contact with several Trump campaign advisers. Dearlove and Halper attended a Cambridge political event in July 2016 where Halper had his first contact with Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. -Daily Caller

Of note, Dearlove is best known for peddling a report alleging that Saddam Hussein had WMDs, which then-UK Prime Minister Tony Blair used to justify launching a war against Iraq.

NXIVM Sex-Cult Prosecutors Have Evidence Of Illegal Clinton Campaign Contributions For "Political Influence"

US Attorney Richard Donoghue asked a federal judge last month for permission to present a mountain of new evidence in the NXIVM sex-cult trial - including evidence of an "illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign," in the "hopes of obtaining political influence to advance their own agenda," according to a March court filing.

"At the suggestion of a political operative, who has since pleaded guilty to an unrelated New York state bribery charge also involving campaign contributions, the contributions were “bundled” and presented to the candidate at a fundraising event attended by conspirators," the filing continues.

Mueller Report Undermines Most Salacious Claim In Steele Dossier

A Russian businessman with knowledge of the infamous “pee tapes” was told the tapes were fake, but chose not to tell Michael Cohen, the Mueller Report revealed Thursday.

Giorgi Rtskhiladze texted former personal attorney to the president Michael Cohen on October 30, 2016, saying, “Stopped flow of tapes from Russia but not sure if there’s anything else. Just so you know…” according to the report released Thursday morning after Attorney General William Barr’s press conference.

A footnote in the report reads, “Rtskhiladze said he was told the tapes were fake, but he did not communicate that to Cohen.”

But though Rtskhiladze was told that the tapes were fake, he did not tell Cohen.

NXIVM SEX CULT’S ALLEGED ILLEGAL POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS REPORTEDLY WENT TO HILLARY CLINTON

The NXIVM sex cult is facing allegations that it illegally bundled campaign donations to gain political favor with an unnamed US presidential election candidate and reports suggest that the politician is Hillary Clinton.
United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Richard Donoghue asked a federal judge to introduce evidence showing that the defendants in the sex cult case had an “illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign.”

The court documents claim that witness testimony and documentary evidence will show that at least 14 NXIVM members, including five defendants, made the maximum campaign donation to a candidate, with the “understanding that they would be reimbursed by [Claire] Bronfman or Nancy Salzman,” who were involved in the cult. Salzman is the co-founder along with Keith Raniere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Grab the popcorn, folks; if this case ever gets to trial, this is going to, potentially, have a "domino effect" on both the Clintons, and the Democratic party as well.

Ocasio-Cortez Lists Tax Cuts and the Census as Reasons to Impeach Trump

The phrase ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ must be too many syllables for her to understand.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked during an interview on Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast this past weekend if she supports impeaching President Trump.

As with most thoughts, the Democrat socialist struggled to convey any rational reasons for supporting such a bold and significant move.

“I think you could reach in a bag and pull so many things out that are impeachable of this president,” she claimed. “I support impeaching this president.”

So many things …

That’s when the interviewers asked her to cite three specific ‘things.’

REPORT: CHRISTOPHER STEELE REFUSING TO MEET WITH DOJ INSPECTOR GENERAL, WHICH IS SCRUTINIZING EX-SPY’S DOSSIER

Christopher Steele declined to meet with the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General, which is reportedly poised to cast doubt on the veracity of some of the former British spy’s infamous anti-Trump dossier.

Steele declined the inspector general’s request on the grounds that it would be improper for him to take part “in an internal Justice Department investigation as a foreign national and former British intelligence agent,” Politico reported Wednesday.

Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Now Officially Being Investigated by Feds

Multiple sources are saying that one of the daughters of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli is now officially being investigated by the Department of Justice over her role in the college bribery scandal.

Daily Mail reported that one of the couple’s two daughters received a letter from federal prosecutors in Massachusetts earlier this month saying that she is the subject of an investigation that could result in her being hit with criminal charges.

“It is a not-so-veiled threat,” said an insider who saw the letter. “[The US Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts] is making it pretty clear that they have evidence that very strongly suggests she knew of the illegal plot.”

Robert Mueller Named One of the ‘Top 10 World’s Greatest Leaders’ by FORTUNE Magazine

FORTUNE magazine named special counsel Robert Mueller number three on its list of the “Top 10 World’s Greatest Leaders” Thursday.

“Few people on either side of the partisan divide seem satisfied with the outcome of Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections,” FORTUNE wrote in its profile of Mueller. “But that very dissatisfaction speaks to the nobly impartial example the former FBI director set as he led an arduous, sensitive investigation.”

“He and his team didn’t uncover the smoking guns that President Trump’s critics craved, nor did they grant the President the exoneration he demanded. Instead, sticking to the evidence and tuning out the hype, they exposed serious wrongdoing and shed light on systemic flaws that the nation is now more likely to address,” the profile continued.

As Governments Adopt Artificial Intelligence, There’s Little Oversight and Lots of Danger

By James Hendler, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Artificial intelligence systems can – if properly used – help make government more effective and responsive, improving the lives of citizens. Improperly used, however, the dystopian visions of George Orwell’s 1984 become more realistic.

On their own and urged by a new presidential executive order, governments across the U.S., including state and federal agencies, are exploring ways to use AI technologies.

As an AI researcher for more than 40 years, who has been a consultant or participant in many government projects, I believe it’s worth noting that sometimes they’ve done it well – and other times not quite so well. The potential harms and benefits are significant...

Third Roundup-Cancer Lawsuit Exposes Cozy Relationship Between the EPA and Monsanto

By Derrick Broze

A third lawsuit related to claims that Monsanto’s Roundup causes cancer has revealed new details about the cozy relationship between the biotech giant and U.S. regulators.

On Monday, Monsanto Co. corporate spokesman William Reeves admitted the corporation has regularly communicated with U.S. regulatory agencies regarding reviews of the controversial Roundup herbicide. Reeves denied that Monsanto had given the agencies orders to follow. Reeves’ testimony came about during the latest lawsuit against biotech giant Monsanto, as Alva and Alberta Pilliod fight to prove that Roundup caused their cancer...
