US Nukes in Turkey Not Secure, Former US Defense Officials Say

Ex-Pentagon officials have called for the US to pull its nuclear weapons from Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base as tensions linger between Washington and Ankara.
Joseph Cirincione, president of the nonproliferation and anti-war Ploughshares Fund nonprofit, told Stars and Stripes that the Turkish base was the "worst place possible to be keeping"roughly 50 of Washington’s nukes.

A Turkish special forces policeman stands guard in front the damaged building of the police headquarters which was attacked by the Turkish warplanes during the failed military coup last Friday, in Ankara, Turkey, Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Cirincione said there are B61 gravity bombs stored at Incirlik, the maximum yield of which has 10 times the power of the bomb Washington dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

Officials have also suggested relocating the 2,500 US troops currently housed at the base.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions are, how will the US get these nuclear weapons out of Turkey, if Erdogan refuses to return physical custody of those weapons to the US government?!?

And will Erdogan allow the 2500 US military on this base to leave?!?

Erdogan is going to demand some kind of "quid pro quo" for these steps to be taken, and they may well involve repatriating the Imam Gulen from the United States to Turkey, as Erdogan believes this man was complicit in the failed coup of last year.

AUSTRALIAN POLICE SEEK THE RIGHT TO INSTALL MALWARE ON HOME DEVICES DURING "EMERGENCIES"

The Queensland Police have asked the Australian Parliament to give them the right to covertly install malicious software on your home devices in order to conduct mass surveillance during times of "national emergency" The plan neatly demonstrates the ignorance and indifference of law enforcement to the realities of information security and civil liberties. Australia has emerged as a world leader in bad information policy, seeking a worldwide ban on working cryptography, with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull insisting that "The laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia."

CIA Gives More Power to Spies to Bolster Intelligence Operations. Pompeo: China, not Russia, poses greatest long-term threat

U.S. Faces Growing Threats From China, North Korea

Over the longer term, however, Pompeo singled out China as the most serious security challenge.

While China, Russia, and Iran all are expected to pose significant problems in the future, China is a greater threat because of its robust economy and growing military power—both aimed against the United States.

"I think China has the capacity to present the greatest rivalry to America of any of those over the medium and long term," he said.

China's military is building up forces that are aimed at countering U.S. power projection around the world, he said.

"So you see that, whether it's going on in the South China or East China Sea, or the work they're doing in other parts of the world," Pompeo said.

In acquiring foreign technology, he noted: "If you look at them, they are probably trying either to steal our stuff, or make sure they can defeat it. And most often, both."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China's burgeoning economy, and its ability to make things people want to actually buy, is definitely a problem for the US government; please remember that the iphone...is made in China.

China's weaponry is on point to match, or exceed the capabilities of US-made weaponry, because the culture of the military/industrial complex in this country has become decadent, to the point where CEOS of the companies making our weapons, planes, and ships, believe it is perfectly acceptable to deliver products so late as to be obsolete by the time they are field-tested; to deliver products which absolutely cannot perform as advertised (think: Lockheed Martin's F-35), and have cost overruns which make the budgets for these items wildly out of control.

IF we are going to have a tiny chance to defeat the Chinese in military combat, which may well be coming, to attempt to destroy the yuan, this has to change.

As those of you who read this blog understand, I detest war as a method of resolving geopolitical conflicts; that being said, when our military is tasked with being at war, they deserve the best the military/industrial complex can provide.

And right now, they are not getting that, and not by a long shot.

NETANYAHU WANTS TO EXPEL AL JAZEERA FROM ISRAEL OVER UNFAVORABLE COVERAGE

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said late Wednesday he wants to expel Qatari broadcaster Al Jazeera from Israel amid tensions over a sensitive Jerusalem holy site. “The Al Jazeera channel continues to incite violence around the Temple Mount,” Netanyahu wrote in a Facebook post, referring to the Haram al-Sharif compound in Jerusalem, known to Jews as the Temple Mount. “I have appealed to law enforcement agencies several times to close the Al Jazeera office in Jerusalem. If this is not possible because of legal interpretation, I am going to seek to have the necessary legislation adopted to expel Al Jazeera from Israel.”

Israel’s Deliberate Trajectory Towards an Escalating Conflict

The short-term policies of the now discredited Netanyahu government that are aligned towards ensuring another war with Hezbollah and Hamas, treat the future of the next generation of both Israelis and Arabs, with complete contempt.

Netanyahu and his cabinet know full well that they are on a deliberate trajectory towards an escalating conflict with the blockaded peoples of Gaza and the West Bank who are forced to exist with virtually no electricity, or power, whilst Israelis in Tel Aviv’s affluent marina playground, in Herzliya, cavort about in their power boats as they plan their next luxury vacation to New York and the capitals of Europe.

This Miner’s $190 Billion Tax Bill Would Take Centuries to Pay

Tanzania sent Acacia Mining Plc a tax bill equal to almost two centuries worth of the gold producer’s revenue.

The government issued the company, which mines all of its gold in the African country, with a $40 billion tax bill and another $150 billion in interest and penalties, Acacia said in a statement Monday. The charge covers alleged under-declared export revenues from the Bulyanhulu and Buzwagi mines over periods between 2000 and 2017.

Acacia reiterated that it has fully declared all revenues.

100,000 PAGES OF CHEMICAL INDUSTRY SECRETS GATHERED DUST IN AN OREGON BARN FOR DECADES — UNTIL NOW

FOR DECADES, SOME of the dirtiest, darkest secrets of the chemical industry have been kept in Carol Van Strum’s barn. Creaky, damp, and prowled by the occasional black bear, the listing, 80-year-old structure in rural Oregon housed more than 100,000 pages of documents obtained through legal discovery in lawsuits against Dow, Monsanto, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Forest Service, the Air Force, and pulp and paper companies, among others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government doesn't give a damn about individual citizens, and the quality of their health; they are only concerned about the bottom lines of major corporations, which give copious amounts of money to fund political campaigns to get candidates elected, and re-elected.

Those candidates then proceed to protect these corporations from any possible hint of wrong-doing, and make it their business that no harm comes to them, no matter the horrific price paid by individuals who have been severely injured by their products.

DNA of human embryos edited for 1st time in US – report

A team of researchers in Oregon have become the first to attempt to create genetically modified human embryos in the United States. The team reportedly demonstrated they could eliminate diseases in offspring with CRISPR.

Led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov, a team of scientists at the Oregon Health and Science University used the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology to alter human DNA in single-cell embryos, according to a report published Wednesday on the MIT Technology Review.

“So far as I know, this will be the first study reported in the US,” Jun Wu, a collaborator at the Salk Institute, told the MIT Technology Review.

Anti-White journalist Jonathan Freedland has written a thinly veiled assassination fantasy targeting Donald Trump.

The British-Jewish journalist, infamous for hailing the demographic eclipse of the British people in their own homeland as “a kind of triumph,” has devoted the last twelve months of his miserable journalistic life to neurotic attacks on the Trump presidency. His hyperbolic writings at the Guardian, while making little original contribution to the intellectual debate over the progress of the Trump administration, have instead revealed much about the paranoid preoccupations of Freedland, the Left, and elements of the organized Jewish community.

The Irish Crimean: Mammon and Analyzing Western Nihilism

As an approach to analyzing western nihilism, this point will probably seem completely obvious to most of you, but precisely because it's so obvious, we sometimes overlook its importance:

One of the great failings of western ideology, which distinguishes western civilization from all previous civilizations, is that, in the west, material prosperity and progress are pursued for their own sake rather than as a condition for other kinds of social "good."

If you had asked the rulers of the Mughal Empire or of Han Dynasty China "Do you want your people to be materially prosperous?", then they would have answered "Of course!"

THERE IS SIMPLY NO SCIENTIFIC BACKING FOR TSA'S BEHAVIORAL DETECTION PROGRAM

The Government Accountability Office has taken a run at the TSA's Behavioral Detection program in the past. Its findings were far from complimentary. Specially-trained "Behavior Detection Officers" (BDOs) were basically human coin flips. Deciding whether or not someone was a threat came down to a lot of subjective readings of human behavior, rather than proven principles.

In response to this report, the TSA started trimming back the number of BDOs it deployed, converting about 500 of them back into regular TSA officers. But the TSA still believed there was something to its pseudoscience patchwork, so it's still sending out 2,600 BDOs to covertly stare at travelers' throats and eyes (no, really) until terrorism reveals itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The TSA (read: Travel Suppression Agency) does not exist to get the "bad guys"; time and time again, it has proven incapable of detecting fake bombs or weapons which got aboard planes.

It exists to cow, and humiliate, innocent passengers, whose only "crime" is needing to get from one place to another, with at least some of their dignity in tact.

It is a clever way to employ people incapable of getting a job at a fast-food joint, who love to grope, embarrass, and humiliate people, particularly if they have medical issues, and get paid for it.

And this is by no means an isolated incident. The website PharmaDeathClock.com, which keeps track of the number of victims killed by “Big Pharma’s chemical warfare on humanity” since the year 2000, shows that over 703,000 people have been killed by SSRIs during that time period.

Chris Gowen, a founding partner at Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd and Silva, apparently did a little bit of everything for the Clintons over the course of multiple years including working in the Clinton White House, helping President Bill Clinton write his book, "My Life", and serving on Hillary's 2008 presidential campaign.

Bitcoin SCAM warning: Currency is ‘pyramid scheme’ says top investor who predicted crash

CRYPTOCURRENCY Bitcoin is a nothing more than a fad or pyramid scheme style scam, according to billionaire investor Howard Marks.

...

He told clients: "In my view, digital currencies are nothing but an unfounded fad (or perhaps even a pyramid scheme), based on a willingness to ascribe value to something that has little or none beyond what people will pay for it."

The investor compared cryptocurrencies to the Tulip mania of 1637, the South Sea bubble of 1720 and the internet bubble of 1999.

He added: "Serious investing consists of buying things because the price is attractive relative to intrinsic value.

"Speculation, on the other hand, occurs when people buy something without any consideration of its underlying value or the appropriateness of its price."

CIA ABILITY TO TROJAN APPLE OS EXPOSED IN LATEST HACKING RELEASE

‘Achilles’ is detailed by WikiLeaks in a statement as producing one or more operators to access an OS X disk image, and execute operations one time. The OS X disk image contains the contents and structure of the device’s storage.

Intel Core 2 Processor and OS X are required on the target's computer for ‘Achilles’ to operate, according to a user guide.

‘Imperial’ is part of a series by the whistleblowers named ‘Vault 7’ which began in March and has seen releases from WikiLeaks on an almost weekly basis.

WikiLeaks claims the leaks, which detail hacking exploits, come from a computer within the CIA, who would not comment on their alleged origin.

Also detailed in ‘Imperial’ is ‘SeaPea’ which targets Apple devices, providing stealth and tool-launching capabilities to the OS X Rootkit. Running on Mac OSX 10.6 and 10.7 it hides files and directories, socket connections and processes, according to WikiLeaks.

Netanyahu's dangerous delusion

The Israeli right no longer bothers to conceal its abhorrence of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that would provide the Palestinians with an independent state alongside Israel. It also rejects a one man, one vote solution, the fundamental principle of democratic rule, for one binational state between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Instead, the right boasts of its ability to manage the conflict with reasonable or negligible cost to Israel’s diplomacy, security or economy. It argues that Israel can manage quite well without resolving the conflict and by accelerating development of its settlements on occupied Palestinian territory.

US Congress following Israeli anti-Iran agenda: Pundit

The US House of Representatives has voted overwhelmingly to impose new sanctions against Iran. The lower chamber of Congress approved the bill on Tuesday. The move came days after the Donald Trump administration certified, for the second time, to Congress that Iran was in compliance of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers.

Press TV has interviewed Scott Rickard, a political analyst and former American intelligence linguist from Tampa, Florida, and Jim Walsh, a research associate with MIT Security Studies Program at Massachusetts Institute from Boston, for their thoughts about the imposition of new sanctions against Iran.

Rickard lashed out at US lawmakers, saying the financial backers of the congressmen are forcing them to approve anti-Iran bills.

FIRST HUMAN EMBRYOS EDITED IN U.S.

Until now, American scientists have watched with a combination of awe, envy, and some alarm as scientists elsewhere were first to explore the controversial practice. To date, three previous reports of editing human embryos were all published by scientists in China.

Now Mitalipov is believed to have broken new ground both in the number of embryos experimented upon and by demonstrating that it is possible to safely and efficiently correct defective genes that cause inherited diseases.

Although none of the embryos were allowed to develop for more than a few days—and there was never any intention of implanting them into a womb—the experiments are a milestone on what may prove to be an inevitable journey toward the birth of the first genetically modified humans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Playing with DNA, the very building block of life, through the application of CRISPR technology, may well result in unforeseen complications generations later.

“The Arsal battle had been planned since 2015... It was not an Iranian or a Syrian decision and we contacted the Syrian leadership and asked for their help in Flita,” said Nasrallah in a televised speech.

“Whoever has the slightest military knowledge would know that such a decision cannot be taken days before the battle, which needed preparation and is not linked to any political developments,” Nasrallah noted.

THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX IS UNDERMINING US NATIONAL SECURITY

The ongoing problems with the F-35 and other military programs, stemming from virtually unlimited budgets, underline the inefficiency of the American military-industrial complex (MIC). In contrast, Moscow develops armaments capable of counteracting the latest technological advances of the US at minimal cost.

One of a state’s most insidious mechanisms is the inefficiency of the military-industrial sector. When looking at the world's first superpower, this becomes all the more pronounced. Still, the ongoing problems highlighted by the F-35 program and failed missile interceptions by ABM systems are a good demonstration of how inefficiency in the US military sector has risen to worrying levels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This culture of waste, and a complete lack of meritocracy, on such a massive scale, must be dealt with.

For far too long, the US military has put up with equipment which is delivered so late as to be obsolete; does not perform as advertised; and is riddled with massive cost overruns.

President Trump needs to change this; there need to be stringent checks in place to prevent this from continuing, including jailing executives of companies which fail to deliver working, cost-contained, and state-of-the-art weapons for our military.

As draconian as this sounds, it would definitely be a move which would change the culture of this industry forever in this country.

But of course, this will only change when pigs fly; the military industrial complex owns this government, covertly and overtly, and they know it.

This is why the next major war in which the US government and military is involved will most probably be a war it cannot win.

THE SWEDISH government is on the brink of collapse following the data leak of a huge amount of personal information.

The leak occurred last year but was hushed up by officials and politicians until earlier this week.

On Monday, Sweden's prime minister Stefan Lofven admitted he knew about the ultra-sensitive leaks, which included a huge amount of personal information.

Data relating to armed service personnel, people involved in witness protection programmes, police databases and military hardware and equipment were all leaked.

The information was accidentally leaked to people in the Czech Republic and Serbia during a bungled attempt to re-locate Swedish government departments.

Antidepressants linked to murders and murderous thoughts

Antidepressants have been linked to 28 reports of murder and 32 cases of murderous thoughts, in cases referred to the UK medicines regulator over the past 30 years, a BBC investigation has discovered.

The pills, known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) which includes common drugs like Prozac and Seroxat, are prescribed 40 million times each year in Britain.

But an Freedom of Information request for BBC Panorama discovered that the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency had received 60 reports of murders or murderous thoughts linked to the drugs in the past three decades.

Professor Peter Tyrer, a psychiatrist at Imperial College London, has been assessing the performance of SSRIs since they were first introduced in the 1980s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How in the name of heaven can the statement be made:

"Although the link between murders and antidepressants in cases referred to the MHRA do not mean the drugs caused the events..."?!?

There is obviously a causal relationship between these drugs and what happened to the people who exhibited this behaviour, period, end of discussion.

Of course, the pharmaceutical houses growing fat off the prescriptions of these drugs (and many times, doctors who write these prescriptions get compensated by the drug manufacturers as well) don't want the general public knowing about these horrific side effects; but they need to.

And if you want a resource for a dossier on the negative effects which happened to people on SSRIS, you need go no further than that following website:

Car Wash Hack Can Strike Vehicle, Trap Passengers, Douse Them With Water

A group of security researchers have found vulnerabilities in internet-connected drive-through car washes that would let hackers remotely hijack the systems to physically attack vehicles and their occupants. The vulnerabilities would let an attacker open and close the bay doors on a car wash to trap vehicles inside the chamber, or strike them with the doors, damaging them and possibly injuring occupants.

"We believe this to be the first exploit of a connected device that causes the device to physically attack someone," Billy Rios, the founder of Whitescope security, told Motherboard.

THE TOXIC FRUIT OF FINANCIALIZATION: RISK IS FOR THOSE AT THE BOTTOM

Those who have pushed the risk down the wealth-power pyramid are confident the Federal Reserve will continue to limit the risks of speculative financialization.

One of the most pernicious consequences of financialization is the shifting of risk from the top of the wealth-power pyramid to the bottom: those who benefit the most from financialization's leveraged, speculative credit bubbles protect themselves from losses while those at the bottom of the pyramid (the bottom 99.5%) face the full fury of financialization's formidable risk.

Longtime correspondent Chad D. and I recently exchanged emails exploring how the higher debt loads and higher interest payments of financialization inhibits people at the bottom of the wealth-power pyramid (i.e. debt-serfs) from taking risks such as starting a small business.

By Aaron Kesel

Yesterday, Republican lawmakers blocked a bipartisan proposal designed to allow Veterans Affairs doctors to recommend medical marijuana as a substitute to big pharma’s opioids where the drug is legal for veterans.

The House Committee stopped the “Veterans Equal Access” amendment from moving to debate on the House floor by keeping the measure out of the VA funding bill for next year...

Chef Calls Out Customers Who 'Fake' Food Allergies At Restaurants

Sydney-based chef, Patrick Friesen has had enough with picky eaters, and he’s taken to Instagram to let them know.

Friesen posted an image to his Instagram account of three long receipts from different tables at his restaurant, Queen Chow. Each dish has been altered by dietary restrictions. But merely having an allergy – to gluten or shellfish, as seen in the bulk of the alterations on the receipt – is not what makes this top chef so angry.

Police Department Posts Controversial Photo About Giving Money to Panhandlers (3 Pics)

Mahatma Gandhi is quoted as saying, “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members,” and this statement rings true today, especially in these United States. With the homeless population remaining an often overlooked segment of our population, it takes a special kind of dick to kick a man while he’s down and shame the people who tried to help him in their own way.

Congress Wants to Start a War with Russia Using Senate Bill 722

Would the new bill that the Senate has quietly passed actually remove executive powers from the President and start a war with Russia?

Our US Congress is filled with criminals, liars, people with serious health problems that could impair their judgment, and lifers with all the signs of advancing dementia, and yet these people are making decisions that could mean the difference between life and death for the rest of us while completely circumventing the checks and balances put in place by the Constitution.

A bill called "Countering Iran's Destabilizing Activities Act of 2017" is, unsurprisingly, inaccurately named. (Aren't all of the most powerful bills? I mean, the Patriot Act was anything but patriotic.)

Really, it's all about Russia and disabling the Executive Branch.

Random Russian Guy Removed From US Flight After Being Accused of "Invading Crimea"

We hope this isn't true, for the sake of humanity, but unfortunately it's par for the course: A Russian citizen, who apparently has lived in the United States for the last 22 years, was kicked off a domestic US flight because a fellow passenger accused him of invading Crimea... "Got kicked out from the plane Delta airlines!!!! Seattle Atlanta. Despite the fact of having platinum membership with the sky team alliance," Yeryomin wrote in his message quoted by the embassy. "Flight 1588. For being Russian citizen. Not kidding. Passenger next to me refused to fly with me because according to him I was an occupant of Crimea as well as other Russian citizens. WTF." According to Yeryomin, Delta Air Lines "supported his (the complainer’s) case. "As a result (I) had to take another flight much later. Funtime idiots. God bless America. Time to go home after 22 years of living here lol."
