This effectively exposes all of Obama’s intentional lies which he spewed in a desperate attempt to cover-up the shocking truth that we now know definitely and beyond any doubt…

Trump has been right all along…

YouTube glitch results in huge subscriber count losses, negative sub counts

A number of YouTube channels are experiencing huge subscriber count losses, as the result of a glitch that occurred Wednesday afternoon.

The glitch was first reported by YouTube user BlackScreenTV, who theorized that it was caused by a counting error when subscribing and un-subscribing. We conducted our own tests, and found his theory to be correct.

Here’s an example: You find a channel that has 1,000 subscribers. If you subscribe, their count would be increased to 1,001 – normal, intended behavior. When you immediately unsubscribe, however, their count decreases by two, dropping to 999. The ending result is a net gain of -1 subscribers, as opposed to 0.

The glitch caused many top channels to seemingly lose thousands of subscribers on Wednesday afternoon, with several channels dropping into the negatives.

Shell launches bid to leave massive, sludgy oil rig remnants in North Sea for 500 years

Oil giant Shell is to launch a bid to leave the 10 vast concrete legs of three oil rigs standing in the North Sea for up to 500 years after the platforms have been decommissioned.

The company’s proposals also include the controversial suggestion that oil mixed with sediment in 42 out of 64 concrete storage cells – each up to 20 metres in diameter and 60 metres high, taller than Nelson’s Column – should remain on the sea bed.

Robots 'could replace 250,000 UK public sector workers'

Almost 250,000 public sector workers could lose their jobs to robots over the next 15 years, according to a new report which claims machines would be more efficient and save billions of pounds.

Reform, a right-of-centre thinktank, says websites and artificial intelligence “chat bots” could replace up to 90% of Whitehall’s administrators, as well as tens of thousands in the NHS and GPs’ surgeries, by 2030 – saving as much as £4bn a year.

Even nurses and doctors could fall victim to the march of the machines, which the report says can outperform humans at some diagnoses and routine surgical procedures, and are more efficient at collecting information.

We finally have a computer that can survive the surface of Venus

The chip was then placed into the GEER—the Glenn Extreme Environments Rig, a machine that can maintain Venus-like temperature and pressure for hundreds of hours at a time. The chip, a simple 3-stage oscillator, kept functioning at a steady 1.26MHz for 521 hours (21.7) days before the GEER had to be shut down.

NASA Glenn says this is the first reported demonstration of a computer chip operating in Venus-like conditions for multiple days/weeks without the aid of a pressure vessel, cooling system, or other means of protection. "With further technology maturation, such SiC IC electronics could drastically improve Venus lander designs and mission concepts, fundamentally enabling long-duration enhanced missions to the surface of Venus," the researchers conclude.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsTrump to Approve Arms Sales to Saudis, Bahrain, Ignoring Human Rights Concerns

According to officials familiar with the process, President Trump is expected to quickly approve massive weapons sales to both Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, deals which had been on hold over growing concerns about human rights abuses by both nations.

The White House did not discuss the matter directly, saying the final announcement isn’t made yet, but the reports say that a $300 million Saudi missile technology sale and a multi-billion dollar warplane deal for Bahrain are both expected to get imminent clearance from the administration.

Human rights groups had been attacking the Obama Administration for years over such sales, calls which grew with the Saudi war in Yemen and the huge civilian death toll that followed. In the final few months of his administration, Obama was slowing some of the sales.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Mr. President, Profits Uber alles?!?

How in the name of a just Heaven can you possibly be greenlighting these deals, when you know what is being done with these weapons?!?

The Sunni Al-Khalifa monarchy has been regularly suppressing its Shia majority, who - to date - have been peacefully protesting the lack of democracy, and then jailed, tortured into confessions for crimes they did not commit, and receiving huge jail sentences.

Bahrain is still hounding its Shia

And the Saudis?!? Please don't get me started, sir. They have employed a "scorched earth" policy against neighboring Yemen, where the Houthi rebels unseated Monsour Al-Hadi, and this war has gone on for two years, with no real gains to speak of.

Yemen: no accountability for war crimes in Yemen

The Saudis are creating war crimes right, left, upside down, and backwards. They are bombing schools and hospitals; the elderly fragile; women; and open-air markets. They are blockading the ports, so no food can come into the country, meaning that thousands of children are literally starving to death here.

Images: starving Yemeni children

Mr. President, do you not understand that These weapons deals make the US government complicit in those war crimes?!?!?

And by the way, just in case your advisors have decided to "shield" you from the following information,I WON'T!!

These bombing raids are maiming Yemeni children, if not killing them outright. I think you should have a good, hard look at these kids, and ask yourself; what if these were my kids?!?

Images: wounded and killed Yemeni children, courtesy of Saudi bombing raids.

To say that I am profoundly disappointed that you have chosen to side with war criminals in both these countries.... is a colossal understatement.

I sincerely thought you would be making better choices than this.

But I guess Corporate Directors of General Dynamics which the bombs, is ecstatic about making a killing...literally.

Israel has banned anaesthetic gas from entering the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Ministry of Health revealed yesterday.

This is the third time that the occupation has prevented Nitrous Oxide (nitrox) gas, which is used for patients during surgery, from entering the besieged enclave, the ministry’s spokesman, Ashraf Al-Qidra, said. The ban means a number of urgent medical procedures have now been halted, he explained.

There are currently 200 patients awaiting urgent medical treatment in Gaza’s hospitals, Al-Qidra said.

Trump Breaks The Ice With China’s Xi In Letter Seeking ‘Constructive’ Ties

U.S. President Donald Trump has broken the ice with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a letter that said he looked forward to working with him to develop relations, although the pair haven’t spoken directly since Trump took office.

The letter thanked Xi for his congratulatory note on Trump’s inauguration and wished the Chinese people a prosperous Lunar New Year of the Rooster, the White House said in a statement on Wednesday.

“President Trump stated that he looks forward to working with President Xi to develop a constructive relationship that benefits both the United States and China,” it said.

China said on Thursday it attached great importance to China-U.S. ties.

“We highly appreciate President Trump’s holiday greetings to President Xi Jinping and the Chinese people,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a daily press briefing.

10 Reasons America Will Be Judged As The Most Brutal Empire In History

As with all empires, these “means” have become increasingly violent and destructive in the face of resistance. Yet, only a few more dominoes are left to knock over for America to complete a plan set in motion well before they were one of the colonies. That is unless, of course, other world powers break ranks and attempt to stop the conquerors, which could lead to a large scale conflict.

Regardless, when the dust settles and moral history is written, America and her Western cohorts will likely be viewed as the most brutal empire in history. Here are ten reasons why this is already the case:

Rabbis Fake Solidarity Once Again

Chutzpah, as we know, is a Jewish invention and Rabbi Jill Jacobs, T'ruah's executive director, has a lot of it in her disposal. "It makes a statement when we (Rabbis) are willing to put our bodies on the line.” she said. Perplexed Goyim may wonder how exactly Rabbi Jacobs puts her ‘body on the line’ (sitting down on the street in the middle of Manhattan)? The rabbi must have realised how ridiculous her statement was, as she then corrected herself. "Right now the people whose bodies are really on the line are people trying to get to America, and risking death to do so. The least that we can do is put our bodies a little bit on the line...to bring attention to the situation of refugees.”

WORRIED ABOUT YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PRIVACY AT THE BORDER? TAKE THESE STEPS

Yesterday, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told Congress the Trump administration may soon require that visitors to the United States provide their social media passwords and internet activity history to DHS agents before entering the country.

It appears as if Secretary Kelly was talking about demanding social media passwords and internet history records during the visa application process, but there are reasons to fear the Trump administration could extend these surveillance demands to other groups—even US citizens and legal permanent residents.

Disclaimer: This is not legal advice; you should consult an attorney about your particular situation, and you should carry an attorney’s contact information with you that you can provide to CBP agents if they seek your passwords.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That we even need to think like this upon crossing a border back into the US, when you have been absolutely innocent of any wrongdoing, is just....absoflippinglutely unbelievable, and so thoroughly wrong, legally, that I do not know quite where to begin here..

It appears that the US courts, judicial system, and state and local
officers have collectively reverted to Code Napoleon law, where one was believed guilty until proven innocent.

This attitude goes completely against the grain of what the Constitution and Bill of Rights is supposed to guarantee for American citizens.

As a matter of fact, all that Nancy Pelosi said was that she was not ready to talk about impeachment, I’m ready to talk about it because I do believe that he has shown us enough and defined himself in ways that we have to be suspicious and concerned about him and we’ve got to dig deeper.

THE LEAKED DRAFT of a presidential memorandum Donald Trump is expected to sign within days suspends a 2010 rule that discouraged American companies from funding conflict and human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo through their purchase of “conflict minerals.”

The memo, distributed inside the administration on Friday afternoon and obtained by The Intercept, directs the Securities and Exchange Commission to temporarily waive the requirements of the Conflict Mineral Rule, a provision of the Dodd Frank Act, for two years — which the rule explicitly allows the president to do for national security purposes. The memorandum also directs the State Department and Treasury Department to find an alternative plan to “address such problems in the DRC and adjoining countries.”

RUSSIAN AIRSTRIKE ACCIDENTALLY KILLS THREE TURKISH SOLDIERS IN SYRIA

Whether indeed "accidental", or payback for the downing of a Russian jet over the Turkish-Syrian border in November 2015 is unclear, but according to Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed condolences over the accidental loss of life in the airstrike, in a phone call with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan,

In this article, Israel Shamir advances a startling thesis: the reason the Jews are so anxious to swamp the West with Muslim migrants—the more unruly, extremist, and fanatical these migrants the better—is that they want to use these Muslims as a tool to destroy Christianity with.

They can’t afford to do this themselves; that would make them look too bad and give them an image problem. So instead, employing a more devious and underhand tactic, they plan to egg on these Muslim zealots to do their dirty work for them. The Muslim jihadis, in other words, will one day take on the role of the Jews’ unpaid Christ killers. Or, to use Shamir’s words, their “silent partners”.

HARVARD ECONOMIST: 42 PERCENT OF IMMIGRANT HOUSEHOLDS ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE

A Harvard economist has found that nearly 42 percent of immigrant households in the United States are on public assistance of some kind.

“In 2016, there were 8.9 million households headed by a non-citizen … almost 42 percent of those households received some type of assistance,” George Borjas, Professor of Economics and Social Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, wrote on his website on Feb. 1.

To come to his conclusions Borjas used census data from 1994 to 2016 to calculate how many of the migrant-headed households receive either money, food stamps, or Medicaid.

All CPS students sent home with letter accusing Gov. Rauner of ‘cheating’ kids

Intense rhetoric between Chicago Democrats and Illinois’ Republican governor is nothing new, but some parents are upset it is now being played out in a letter sent home with their kids.

Chicago Public Schools officials sent home a letter with all 381,000 students blasting Gov. Bruce Rauner and ignoring any role Democrats may have played in the state’s budget woes.

The “Dear Parents” letter begins by stating “Governor Bruce Rauner, just like President Trump, has decided to attack those who need the most help.” Twice the letter accuses Gov. Rauner of “cheating” children. Once it says the governor “stole” from kids.

The letter goes on to cite Chicago Public Schools CEO Forrest Claypool’s often repeated claim that the governor broke a promise by blocking Chicago from receiving $215 million for city schools.

One CPS parent who contacted WGN wrote: “This is so inappropriate. How can he send political propaganda home?”

Public School System Exposed for Reporting Parents to CPS for Homeschooling

Homeschooling your child in New York City could earn a visit from Child Protective Services for neglect — even if you’ve followed all procedures required by the public school system to withdraw from its programs.

Tanya Acevedo, as The Federalist reports, experienced firsthand the punitive bureaucracy in place, essentially deeming all homeschooling parents child abusers.

Acevedo withdrew her child from school this winter, filing all necessary paperwork required by the government. But that wasn’t enough to stave off a visit from CPS, who showed up at her residence unannounced to investigate allegations of “educational neglect.”

Time Bomb In Oil Markets: Goldman Sachs Issues Warning

Are These OPEC Members Sabotaging The Output Deal?

OPEC provide a shot in the arm for oil prices this week when S&P Global Platts reported a much higher than expected compliance rate for the month of June. So far, OPEC has achieved 91 percent of its promised production cuts, impressing many oil watchers who expected mutual antipathy and mistrust to get in the way of cooperation.

But the success of the deal could be undermined by a few members within OPEC that are not part of the deal. Libya and Nigeria were given exemptions, due to the sizable portion of oil production capacity sidelined because of war, sabotage and political strife in both countries.

The Donald Trump of the Catholic Church: Controversial priest is addicted to Twitter rants - calling Hillary an 'evil witch' and Obama 'a bum' - and the Church can't stop his outbursts

It looks like Donald Trump's not the only one with a controversial Twitter account.
Reverend Peter West of St. John's Catholic Church in Orange, New Jersey, has called Hillary Clinton an 'evil witch' and former President Barack Obama a 'bum' in his frequent social media posts.

While West has racked up more than 7,300 followers on Facebook, and another 2,100 more on Twitter, church officials are looking to curtail the priest's online posts.

Seattle Just Divested Billions From Wells Fargo Over Dakota Access Pipeline

The movement to stop the controversial Dakota Access pipeline through financial activism took an important step forward today, as the Seattle City Council voted 9-0 to approve a bill that terminates a valuable city contract with Wells Fargo. The bank, one of the largest in the United States, has provided more than $450 million in credit to the companies building the pipeline.

The move makes Seattle the first city to divest from a financial institution because of its role in the Dakota Access pipeline, a $3.8 billion project that would run from western North Dakota to Illinois, and is fiercely opposed by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Wells Fargo is one of 17 banks directly financing the project.

Trump questions lawmakers' efforts to curb asset seizures by police

In 2016, a group of Republican and Democratic lawmakers introduced a bill, which did not become law, that would have required the government to do more to show that seized property was connected to a crime. Critics have said suspects have few avenues to challenge the seizures and that forfeiture laws were sometimes abused. Police in some cases seize property from people who are never charged or convicted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am alarmed that Trump wants to continue the police' carte blanche to plunder the innocent public.

FLASHBACK - State Dept. needs 75 years to get through 450,000 emails; FBI can do 650,000 in 8 days

Last year, the State Department said it would need about one year to comb through and release Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 emails, or the 55,000 work-related pages she handed over in March 2015. Yet, we’re to believe the FBI can evaluate roughly 650,000 emails in just eight days.

Either the FBI is incredibly efficient or — more likely — partisan politics has corrupted two departments in our executive branch.

Essential context about Trump’s refugee ban – Made in Israel

President Trump has issued an executive order suspending entry to the U.S for people from Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran, and Yemen (the order is called “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States”). These same countries were the focus of the “Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015” under President Obama.

While reports on Trump’s ban emphasize that these are Muslim majority countries, analysts seem to have ignored another significant characteristic that these countries share.

With just a single exception, all of these countries were targeted for attack by certain top U.S. officials in 2001. In fact, that policy had roots that went back to 1996, 1991, 1980, and even the 1950s. Below, we will trace this policy back in time and examine its goals and proponents.

Ministers lose fight to stop payouts over swine flu jab narcolepsy cases

Dozens of children who developed narcolepsy as a result of a swine flu vaccine could be compensated after the high court rejected a government appeal to withhold payments.

Six million people in Britain, and more across Europe, were given the Pandemrix vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline during the 2009-10 swine flu pandemic, but the jab was withdrawn after doctors noticed a sharp rise in narcolepsy among those who received it.

The sleep disorder is permanent and can cause people to fall asleep dozens of times a day. Some narcoleptics have night terrors and a muscular condition called cataplexy that can lead them to collapse on the spot.

Scary Fileless Malware Infects Banks Worldwide

Fileless malware, much like what has previously only been seen in nation-sponsored cyberattacks, is now “going mainstream,” as criminal hackers begin using the same in-memory bug on banks, government agencies, and other enterprises across the globe.

“The so-called fileless malware is unique in its ability to disappear after being installed on a server. Once the attacked computer is rebooted, the malware renames itself, leaving no detectable trace of its existence,” Gizmodo explained. “It can take several months before sysadmins realize the machine has been infected. During that time period, hackers can steal freely from the coffers of the affected enterprise.”

India Shuts Down Gates Foundation Program Over Ties to Big Pharma

Reports say that the reason behind the Secretariat's shifting out of ITSU could be allegations of "conflict of interest" in the NTAGI-Gates Foundation relationship, raised by members of the steering group of the National Health Mission.

The concerns reportedly centered around the foundation's "ties" with pharmaceutical companies, and the influence this could exert on the country's vaccination policy.

Global Policy Forum, an organization seeking to promote accountability of international organizations, highlighted the growing influence of large global philanthropic foundations, including the Gates Foundation, in a December 2015 study called, "Philanthropic Power and Development — Who shapes the agenda?"

Oroville Dam spillway crumbling amid heavy rains

Flows from one of California’s biggest supplies of drinking water were suspended Tuesday after a massive hole opened in the Oroville Dam spillway amid heavy rains.

In a statement, the state agency said there was “no anticipated threat to the dam or the public.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The nation's infrastructure, long neglected in order to pay for wars, is starting to fail. California was starting to pull out of its drought with the extra rain this season, then this happened to erase much of the gains. From the discoloration at the bottom, it appears the flow of water is continuing to undermine the spillway, leaving adjacent sections unsupported from below. Look for more failures in the near future.

The Oroville dam is the tallest earthen dam in the world, second largest after Aswan, and if the water pouring through the hole in the spillway starts to erode the base of the dam, there could be major problems during the spring melt!

A University of Manchester multidisciplinary research team, led by the applied mathematician Dr Geoffrey Evatt, believes the missing iron meteorites may lay as a sparsely distributed layer, just a few centimetres beneath surface of the ice.

This article was shared by Mr. M.M., and there's a few things in this article that caught my attention, but unless one knows the story, the bland reporting of the Reuters article will cause those things to go completely unnoticed. Besides being under investigation in Italy for some shady trading deals implying the use of the float to generate money, and besides having already been hit with fines for other things, being under investigation for helping to rig the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR), now the big German bank is being hit with fines for trades involving Russia:

They are in crisis and then pointing their fingers towards other governments, who have adopted the national agenda in their policy making – be it Russia with President Vladimir Putin, or be it now the US under President Trump. This is basically the line where the two parties are separated by the rather globalist-oriented system and the rather nationalist-oriented system.
