GEORGE ORWELL PREDICTED CAMERAS WOULD WATCH US IN OUR HOMES; HE NEVER IMAGINED WE’D GLADLY BUY AND INSTALL THEM OURSELVES

Normalization—the mainstreaming of people and ideas previously banished from public life for good reason—has become the operative description of a massive societal shift toward something awful. Whether it’s puff pieces on neo-Nazis in major national newspapers or elected leaders who are also documented sexual predators, a good deal of work goes into making the previously unthinkable seem mundane or appealing.

Brain implants that deliver electrical pulses tuned to a person’s feelings and behaviour are being tested in people for the first time. Two teams funded by the US military’s research arm, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), have begun preliminary trials of ‘closed-loop’ brain implants that use algorithms to detect patterns associated with mood disorders.

AI is God: Ex-Google Engineer Creating New Religion

So why is Mueller really going after Flynn?

That didn’t ingratiate him with the Deep State …

Then last November, Flynn ruffled more feathers by writing:

The primary bone of contention between the U.S. and Turkey is Fethullah Gülen, a shady Islamic mullah residing in Pennsylvania whom former President Clinton once called his “friend” in a well circulated video.

The 73-day pause is the longest since a 116-day break between October 2016 and February.

Nolte: Shaky Allegations Against Roy Moore Are Not Enough to Disqualify Him

Any commentary I have thus far made about the Roy Moore scandal has been on social media, and that has centered primarily on mocking the media’s hypocrisy while also noting my thoughts on individual aspects of the story. The big question, though, the question of whether or not the allegations add up to something serious enough to knock Moore out of Alabama’s Senate race, I have saved until now.
It may no longer be fashionable to wait for all the facts before expressing an opinion, but when it comes to something as deadly serious as a man’s reputation and allegations of child molestation, call me a fuddy-duddy.

From my vantage point, the issue comes down to four allegations:

The subsequent media coverage to the report on the US’s violations, specifically articles in TASS, Natural Blaze and elsewhere, were the beginnings of acknowledgement that the US’s violations have put the entire world at risk.

In the intervening year, another report was published revealing that the US is also violating the UN 1540 Resolution...

Pakistan Protests Swell Into Nationwide Chaos: Islamabad Protests Spreading Precipitously

In early November, from 2,000 protesters from the Tehreek-e Labaik Ya Rasool Allah Pakistan (TLY) began a sit-in in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad. The protesters, led by cleric Khadim Hussain Rizvi, were originally provoked by a minor change to the oath for election candidates.

Though the government has already reversed the oath change, the TLY has kept the protest going, with Rizvi saying they want the resignation of the Law Minister, and that they need to “defend the honor of the Prophet.”

Officials had for weeks tried to placate them, offering talks, and even an apology from the Law Minister. On Saturday, however, police and paramilitary forces tried to push them off the streets, and that went very poorly.

After violent exchanges in the streets, more protesters are in the streets than ever, and Islamabad’s protest is now just the largest of several protests across the country, threatening to bring multiple cities grinding to a halt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are we looking at a potential regime change in Islamabad?!?

This is who these people are, what they believe, and what they are demanding of the government:

The Tehreek-e-Labaik

They are looking for a complete return to Sharia law in Pakistan, through legal process, and to fight back against any human rights gains made by Pakistani women in the last couple of decades.

Saudi-led ‘Arab NATO’ declares total war on terrorism; Iran, Iraq & Syria not invited

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman has vowed to “wipe” terrorists from the “face of the earth” using resources available to the Islamic Military Alliance, a so-called ‘Arab NATO’ which claims to be targeting a “faceless enemy,” rather than any particular “sect” or “country.”

Formed in 2015 by then-deputy Crown Prince and defense minister of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, the IMA has so far only functioned on paper. Now the Crown Prince wants to take his brainchild to the next level by declaring a total “war against terrorism,” during the Sunday summit of IMA, also referred to as the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) or the “Arab NATO.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OH, REALLY?!?!?

Forgive me, but I am nearly close to choking from nausea, invoked by the glaring hipocrisy of the words coming out of this guy's mouth, relative to the hellish realities on the ground he has created for the people of Yemen.

So please: when does Prince Salman intend to announce the end of the terror he and his coalition are raining down on Yemen with these damnable bombing raids, which are killing civillian women, children, and the medically fragile elderly here?!?

When will he stop the US-enabled blockades of Yemeni ports, leading to massive deaths by malnutrition?!?

And when will he get a reasonable, and rapid, medical response going to the horrific outbreak of cholera, which is killing thousands in Yemen?!?

Prince MBS, if you want to stop a lot of terror in the region, you had better damned well take a good, long look in a mirrior first.

Diaspora Jews have had enough of Israel and Zio-Barbarism   

Attila Somfalvi, a leading Israeli journalist reports on Ynet that American Jews are showing signs of Zio-fatigue. Some prominent leaders of the Jewish American community have openly admitted that in recent years there has been a radical shift in attitudes about Israel. Many Diaspora Jews prefer to stay away from Israel and its Zionist leagues.

According to Somfalvi, many youths active in various Jewish organisations see Israel as "a burden." "Israel is not part of our day to day existence," said students at NYU as well as young members of Gather DC, an organization comprising about six thousand Jews who live in the American capital. "We don’t really understand how Israel is connected to our Jewish identity; Israel is a tough subject so we gave up on it."

THE DARK INEVITABILITY OF ZIONISM

Put broadly, BDS is an effort to help save the positive potential inherent in modern post-colonial society: the civilizing potential to be found in international law, in human and civil rights, in a benevolent and egalitarian rule of law for all of us.

So successful has BDS been to date, and so much potential does it have to help force Israel down the same road as white-ruled South Africa, that Israel and its surrogates in the U.S. and Europe are willing to undermine the very laws and rights that help uphold what freedoms there are within the public realm. For instance, in the U.S., the very right to engage in such a boycott is under Zionist attack, and by extension, so is the constitutional protection to free speech. American Zionists seem willing to subvert their own constitutional protections in order to support a racist foreign state.

According to the Middle East Eye, members of UK parliament have accepted some £94,189 ($126,939) worth of luxury hotel stays, lavish dinners, business class flights, donations and other forms of hospitality from the Saudi government this year alone.

So far this year, 13 Conservative MPs have accepted the royal welcome, as well as one Labour MP, who reportedly got a donation worth £6,722 ($8,964), from the Saudi Kingdom.

Middle East Eye editor-in-chief David Hearst notes that “All in all, the first military venture to be launched by the 32-year-old Saudi prince as defense minister is a tactical and strategic shambles.”

The Saudi war is heavily backed by the United States and the United Kingdom.

Zerohedge reports on MBS’ disastrous and illegal military adventure in Yemen that is killing millions of civilians and bankrupting the Saudi Kingdom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good that the coalition appears to be crumbling.

I, very frankly, hate being a citizen of a country colluding with Saudi Arabia in war crimes in Yemen. And I link back to these images again and again, because I think the American people need to be having a very honest dialogue about what is being done, with our tax dollars and in our names in the Middle East.

It is financially very profitable for the US merchants of death to continue to supply Saudi Arabia with the bombs and bullets which kill, and maim for life, innocent infants, toddlers, women, and the medically fragile elderly.

These same corporations, the heads of which have all had their consciences surgically removed before taking office, contribute generously to both parties, so why shouldn't the assassinations of Yemeni innocents continue, as long as they are profitable?!? That is the only thing that matters anymore in American society, profitability, right?!?

Here is what that "profitability" is looking like to Yemeni kids these days:

U.K. Begins Another Gun Surrender Initiative Amid Increase in Gun Crime

The United Kingdom's National Ballistics Intelligence Service (NABIS) is conducting a new gun surrender program from Nov. 13 to Nov. 26 after gun crime in England and Wales increased by more than a quarter in the past year.

The Office for National Statistics found a 27 percent increase in crimes involving firearms during its most recent review of crime data. Despite a near ban on the civilian ownership of handguns the review found crimes committed with handguns increased by 25 percent and accounted for the majority of gun crimes. The agency said the increases in 2016 were part of a multiyear trend.

"The latest rise continues an upward trend seen in firearms offences in the last few years, however, offences are still 31 percent below a decade ago," the most recent annual report from the agency said. "Over the last year, over two-thirds (32 of the 439) of police forces recorded a rise in offences involving firearms."

AMERICA’S SECRET WEAPON IN THE OIL WAR

As Saudi Arabia spins from crisis to crisis, U.S. oil hasn’t missed a beat. It’s stronger and more resilient than ever--and it has nothing to do with OPEC oil production cuts.

In this war, U.S. oil wins, and the recent purge of billionaire princes in Saudi Arabia is icing on the cake.

But when Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman arrested key members of the royal family on corruption charges two weeks ago all of them his rivals--oil shot up. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) spiked more than $2 a barrel, closing around $57 a barrel—a nearly two-year high.

OPEC cuts have done little to boost oil prices, and Royal Family arrests are welcome news for oil tycoons the world over, but it’s still not what’s kept the U.S. on the winning side in this war: Fracking bust the U.S. through the front line, and major advancements in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) are cementing the victory.

Keystone's existing pipeline spills far more than predicted to regulators

TransCanada Corp’s (TRP.TO) existing Keystone pipeline has leaked substantially more oil, and more often, in the United States than indicated in risk assessments the company provided to regulators before the project began operating in 2010, according to documents reviewed by Reuters.

The Canadian company is now seeking to expand the pipeline system linking Alberta’s oil fields to U.S. refineries with its proposed Keystone XL project, which has U.S. President Donald Trump’s backing.

The existing 2,147-mile (3,455 km) Keystone system from Hardisty, Alberta, to the Texas coast has had three significant leaks in the United States since it began operating in 2010, including a 5,000-barrel spill this month in rural South Dakota, and two others, each about 400 barrels, in South Dakota in 2016 and North Dakota in 2011.

“For how long will they [Al Jazeera] continue to tamper with the security of Egypt and the Arab world?” he tweeted.

Khalfan then posted an image of Al Jazeera’s iconic logo superimposed in front of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, head of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group, former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, and 91-year-old Islamic theologian Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

"He Can't Accept The Fact He Screwed Up" - Special Counsel Mueller's Surprisingly Flawed Past

When he was named special counsel in May, Robert S. Mueller III was hailed as the ideal lawman - deeply experienced, strait-laced and nonpartisan - to investigate whether President Trump’s campaign had helped with Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

But, in a surprisingly 'fair and balanced' LA Times story, David Willman exposes the truth that, at 73, Mueller’s record also shows a man of fallible judgment who can be slow to alter his chosen course. At times, he has intimidated or provoked resentment among subordinates. And his tenacious yet linear approach to evaluating evidence led him to fumble the biggest U.S. terrorism investigation since 9/11.

Willmann points out the accolades squared with Mueller’s valor as a Marine rifle platoon commander in Vietnam and his integrity as a federal prosecutor, a senior Justice Department official and FBI director from 2001 to 2013, the longest tenure since J. Edgar Hoover.

Towns has been charged with four counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and one count of third-degree criminal mischief.

Ex-Clinton Foundation Official Tied To Chinese Kindergarten Embroiled In Bizarre Sexual Abuse Scandal

A former Clinton Foundation official who is now an independent director at a company which operates private schools in China has found himself embroiled in a bizarre child abuse scandal involving needles, pills, “brown syrup,” nudity, and sexual molestation, according to parents.

The head of a Beijing kindergarten has been fired after China launched a nationwide investigation into a chain of private schools operated by RYB Education Inc. ($RYB) following claims of abuse at multiple locations. Parents report at least 8 toddlers with mysterious needle marks, while others said their children were forced to take white pills that were supposed to be “a little secret” between the children and teachers, along with some sort of “brown syrup” given to the students. Children were also allegedly stripped naked and forced to stand, or locked in a dark room, one parent said.

Time Prime Minister please: May could be banned from all her local pubs

Angry publicans in Theresa May’s constituency of Maidenhead, Berkshire are seeking to get the prime minister banned from all the pubs in the area. Their motivation is being upset by government cuts to policing services.

“This seems to be the only way she’ll get the message,” Maidenhead pub manager David Kimber told The Mirror, adding that there are “very few police officers here on a Friday or Saturday night.”

Saudis woo Tory MPs with lavish dinners & hotels as 20 million Yemenis starve

The Saudi blockade of Yemen has left 20 million people on the brink of starvation, but some UK parliamentarians prefer not to notice, instead filling up their bellies with the help of royal hospitality of Riyadh, measuring in tens of thousands of pounds.

According to the Middle East Eye, members of UK parliament have accepted some £94,189 ($126,939) worth of luxury hotel stays, lavish dinners, business class flights, donations and other forms of hospitality from the Saudi government this year alone.

So far this year, 13 Conservative MPs have accepted the royal welcome, as well as one Labour MP, who reportedly got a donation worth £6,722 ($8,964), from the Saudi Kingdom.

Kevin Dowd Summarizes Populism for His Sister Maureen’s Liberal Readers: Trump Has 43.2M Twitter Followers; NYT Has 3.1M Subscribers

In keeping with her annual holiday tradition, liberal New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd let her Republican brother Kevin write her Thanksgiving Day column this week.

Kevin Dowd has been delighting conservatives and outraging Dowd’s limousine liberal readership for years now. (Personal favorite: Kevin’s Christmas 2009 column when he told Sarah Palin: “Keep up the good work. Anyone who annoys Keith Olbermann that much is a friend to all of us.”)

This year, Kevin found a pithy way to summarize why President Trump’s tweeting “can be an effective defense” – Trump, he writes, “has 43.2 million Twitter followers. The New York Times has 3.1 million subscribers.”

Morrissey: I’d Kill Donald Trump for the ‘Safety of Humanity’

British musician Morrissey says if given the chance, he’d kill President Donald Trump to ensure the “safety of humanity.”
The 58-year-old former Smiths frontman said in an interview with der Spiegel this week that if he were presented with a button that could instantly kill Trump, he wouldn’t hesitate to press it.

“I would [push it], for the safety of humanity,” Morrissey told the outlet. “It has nothing to do with my personal opinion of his face or his family, but in the interest of humanity I would push.”

The singer also explained that it was the media, who so derided Trump during the 2016 campaign season, that ultimately created Trump, ensured consistent coverage of his campaign, and led to his victory over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

According to Quds Press, the head of the studies and documentation department with the Committee said that Israel has increased the number of detentions of social media users, including women and children who posted, commented positively about or liked pro-Palestinian social media content.

The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC)-mandated list of companies was due to be published in December, but will reportedly now occur “early next year”, the latest such postponement.

“We will do everything we can to ensure that this list does not see the light of day”, Israel’s UN ambassador, Danny Danon, told AP, adding that its publication would turn the UNHRC into “the world’s biggest promoter of BDS”, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign.

Bali issues red alert fearing ‘imminent’ larger eruption of Mount Agung volcano

Indonesian authorities have halted all air traffic at Bali’s international airport after raising the Agung volcano alert back to the highest level, and ordering people within 10 kilometers of the crater to evacuate out of fear of a potential big eruption.

As many as 100,000 people should evacuate expanded danger zone around Bali volcano, the Indonesian disaster agency said on Monday.

A crowd of protesters staged yet another sit-in, obstructing traffic at the corner of Jaffa Road and Nordau Street in the center of Jerusalem in protest against the compulsory military draft of ultra-Orthodox Jews. To disperse the gathering, Israeli police resorted to the so-called “skunk” cannons loaded with stinking fluids. Not without some collateral damage, though.

New World Capitalism: Outer Space Treaty, Now 50, Needs a Rethink Says Business

As more private enterprises turns their gaze toward outer space, there are certain international limitations that leave many questions unanswered so that private entrepreneurship is is effectively paralyzed.

When the US and the USSR engaged in a nuclear weapons race, there was a real possibility that doomsday weapons would go to outer space and, eventually, to the moon. In order to prevent the Cold War from turning into Star Wars madness, several international treaties were signed, whose regulations remain in effect to this day.

But these treaties, which discussed theoretical possibilities, are faced with pretty practical — albeit peaceful — incentives. More companies are interested in doing business beyond the low orbit around Earth, and legislative basis for such activity is uncertain, leading to questions raised by governments and tech giants alike.

What to expect when ‘We the People’ win over illegal .01% US rogue state empire: 1) temporary depression, 2) massive Truth, 3) unimaginable inspiration/breakthroughs. Are you ready?

*hyperlinks live at source*

The US is an lying and illegal rogue state empire (full documentation and video walkthrough here). This is ongoing history of empire: taking over as much of the world possible to control resources (natural and humans as work animals), and with propaganda in corporate media and public education for pretense of a constitutional republic. Importantly, the Roman Empire devolved from a republic into tragic-comic .01% oligarchic “eat their own” self-destruction, as did ancient Greek democracy voting for the death of Socrates rather than face his obvious questions about virtue within that wanna-be empire.

There are three possible outcomes of this human condition:
The empire wins, with tighter control over We the People to serve them.
We the People win, after an Emperor’s New Clothes breakthrough of truth and .01% arrests for obvious crimes centered in war, looting, and lying.

1,000 job openings, some paying $100k or more - and no takers.

You probably know the products Ingersoll Rand manufactures, such as Trane air conditioners and Club Car golf carts, even if you didn’t know the parent company’s name. The Irish conglomerate with its North American headquarters in Davidson has grown to about 2,000 local employees since planting its roots in the quaint Lake Norman town in the mid 1970s.

The problem? The company has about 1,000 open jobs that it’s having trouble filling.

The main cause of that is the so-called skills gap, CEO Michael Lamach said in a recent interview at the company’s headquarters. The term refers to a shortage of workers with the necessary technical skills to handle machinery, perform service on the equipment and use advanced technology, among other functions.
