On the edge of anarchy, Venezuela has 5,000 shoulder-mounted missiles

Venezuela, a country increasingly on the precipice of anarchy, has a cache of 5,000 Russian-made surface to air missiles — a fact that has U.S. officials concerned.

The South American country acquired most of the stockpile of SA-24 Man-Portable Air-Defense System (MANPADS) missiles during the reign of late President Hugo Chavez, according to documents reviewed by Reuters.

The missiles are fired from shoulder-mounted launchers by one person, and can be used to shoot down commercial and military aircraft. More than 40 civilian aircraft have been hit by MANPADS since the 1970’s, according to the Small Arms Survey, leading to at least 28 crashes and 800 deaths.

The weapons are popular with insurgent groups because of their portability, effectiveness, and ease of operation. More than 84 non-state groups are believed to have the missiles, or similar light-weight systems.

Medicinal use for marijuana confirmed: CBD helps kids with rare epilepsy

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial—the gold-standard design—a component of marijuana called cannabidiol (CBD) reduced seizures in children with a rare and devastating form of epilepsy.

The results, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, provide the first solid evidence that marijuana can be used to treat epilepsy, something some patient groups and advocates have argued for years. It also adds to mounting data supporting the medicinal value of the controversial plant.

U.S. Senator: This 'Will Dwarf All Other Stories' -  Russia Probe Puts Bulls-Eye On The Deep State

In conjunction with this release to which no major media outlet is reporting on as of yet, we have the House investigative committee hearings dubbed the Russia probe, with testimony that is finally bearing fruit, just not the fruit the Democrats that were trying to prove Trump campaign collusion with the Russians, wanted.

In fact, all recent testimony, along with the information investigated for over a year, has turned up "no evidence" of any Trump/Russia collusion, but during the hearings, we have garnered a far greater understanding of Obama and his administration abuses, to which this morning Senator Rand Paul said, if proven true, "It will dwarf all other stories."

Why Does the Chicago Public School System Have $9 Billion in Debt With Only 381,000 Students ?

Chicago Public Schools will look to borrow $900 million in the coming weeks — adding to the district’s $9 billion debt — but it remains unclear if anyone will actually give them all the money.

The loans are $500 million more than what Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office announced last week when a financial rescue plan was outlined. That’s because the district is looking for loans not only to get through this school year, but also to start off next year with a financial cushion.

District officials told board members Wednesday that the district would likely “just run out of money” if it didn’t take out these loans.

A New GOP Bill Would Make It Virtually Impossible to Sue the Police

Keeping with the Trump administration’s law-and-order rhetoric, Republicans in the House and Senate recently introduced a bill they’re calling the Back the Blue Act of 2017. The Senate bill was introduced by John Cornyn (R-Tex.), and is co-sponsored by 15 senators, all Republicans. The identical House bill was introduced by Ted Poe (R-Tex.), and includes five co-sponsors, also all Republicans. The bill would create new federal crimes, impose federal police over the will of local officials and voters and shield police officers from virtually any civil liability, even in cases of egregious misconduct.

AG Sessions Did Not Disclose Russia Meetings in Security Clearance Form, DOJ Says

Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose meetings he had last year with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance, the Justice Department told CNN Wednesday.

Sessions, who met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at least two times last year, didn't note those interactions on the form, which requires him to list "any contact" he or his family had with a "foreign government" or its "representatives" over the past seven years, officials said.

The new information from the Justice Department is the latest example of Sessions failing to disclose contacts he had with Russian officials. He has come under withering criticism from Democrats following revelations that he did not disclose the same contacts with Kislyak during his Senate confirmation hearings earlier this year.

The nonpartisan agency’s finding, which drew immediate fire from Democrats, patient advocates, health industry officials and some business groups, is likely to complicate Republicans’ push to pass a companion bill in the Senate.

Republican Candidate 'Body-Slams' Guardian Reporter in Montana

The Republican candidate for Montana’s congressional seat has been charged with misdemeanor assault after he is alleged to have slammed a Guardian reporter to the floor on the eve of the state’s special election, breaking his glasses and shouting, “Get the hell out of here.”

Ben Jacobs, a Guardian political reporter, was asking Greg Gianforte, a tech millionaire endorsed by Donald Trump, about the Republican healthcare plan when the candidate allegedly “body-slammed” the reporter.

“He took me to the ground,” Jacobs said by phone from the back of an ambulance. “I think he wailed on me once or twice ... He got on me and I think he hit me ... This is the strangest thing that has ever happened to me in reporting on politics.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bencjacobs caught Gianforte investing $250,000 in Gazprom and Rosneft.

Plot thickens in probe of House IT contractors

A police spokesman, while declining to go into detail, told Fox News this week that the case remains opens and focuses on “the actions of House IT support staff.”

But a high-level House staffer acknowledged Monday to Fox News that the probe has raised concerns about emails being hacked.

Official documents and multiple sources say at least five contractors -- including brothers Imran, Jamal and Abid Awan -- are the focus of the probe but that as many as six people could be involved.

The others purportedly involved are Imran’s wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, who is not part of the family.

They allegedly removed hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment from offices, including computers and servers, and ran a procurement scheme in which they bought equipment, then overcharged the House administrative office that assigns such contractors to members.

HOW THE BRITISH DEEP STATE TURNED MANCHESTER INTO AL-QAEDA TOWN UK

Anti-Gaddafi Libyans living in Manchester had been trained, armed and aided by Britain to wage jihad against the leadership of Muammar Gaddafi.

More and more information is emerging on how the savage terrorist atrocity recently committed in Manchester was a classic case of terrorist blow-back, a phenomenon describing how when western governments fund, arm and aid terrorists, they often come back to commit horrific crimes against the citizens of the countries which funded and aided them.
It has been confirmed that the father of the Manchester ISIS bomber was a member of the al-Qaeda affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group was initially comprised of battle hardened fighters who traveled to Afghanistan in the 1980s to fight the Soviet Union and the secular government in Kabul.

YET ANOTHER VIDEO SHOWS U.S.-FUNDED WHITE HELMETS ASSISTING PUBLIC EXECUTIONS IN REBEL-HELD SYRIA

Syria Civil Defense, popularly known as the White Helmets, can be seen in a new video assisting in a public execution in a rebel-held town in Syria. It is at least the second such execution video featuring members of the Nobel Prize-nominated group.

The White Helmets have received at least $23 million in funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), a wing of the State Department. The British Foreign Office and other European governments have pitched in as well.

Frequently cited as an invaluable source of information by major Western media outlets, the group was the subject of an Academy Award-winning 2016 Netflix documentary, The White Helmets.

Endorsements from A-list Hollywood celebrities like George Clooney and Justin Timberlake, as well as Hillary Clinton and British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, have followed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning: very disturbing and graphic video.

But this is the US-enabled "business as usual" in Syria.

And the Nobel Prize has become a complete and despicable joke, ever since it was awarded to Henry Kissinger.

UK TORIES SAY THEY'LL EXPLOIT MANCHESTER'S DEAD TO BAN WORKING CRYPTO IN THE UK

One of UK Prime Minister Theresa May's government ministers told a reporter from The Sun that the government is planning on invoking the "Technical Capabilities Orders" section of the Snoopers Charter, a 2016 domestic spying bill; the "orders" allow the government to demand that companies cease using working cryptography in their products and services, substituting it with deliberately defective code that can be broken.

The source told The Sun that the government would cite the Manchester bombing as pretense for invoking the orders, though there's no indication that the security services' failure to prevent the bombing was caused by their inability to pierce cryptographically protected communications.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The way Prime Minister May's government is taking advantage of this tragedy makes me absolutely sick, and reminds me of the saying attributed to Rahm Emanuel, when he was advisor to President Clinton: "Never let a good crisis go to waste!"

The Manchester incident is simply an "excuse/justification" to ram this law through.

There is no proof, whatsoever, at this point that cryptography was involved, or played a part, in any way, in this horrific bombing; and the real problem here, is that the "bad guys" already have unbreakable cryptography, which neither the US nor UK intelligence agencies can crack.

And to any corporations in the UK using cryptography to keep corporate information safe, move the hell out of this country while you still can, and make sure the reasons for your departure are very publicly known.

‘TRUCKLOADS’ OF US ARMS AND AMMO REACH KURDISH MILITIA IN SYRIA – REPORTS

Over 100 trucks loaded with US armaments and ammunition, including heavy mortars and anti-tank missiles, have reached the Kurdish controlled northern Syrian city of Hasakah over the past weeks, Turkish and Kurdish media report.
The US arms shipment was reserved for the multi-ethnic Syrian militia known as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) dominated by Kurdish YPG units, according to the media reports.

The SDF is fighting Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) and is preparing to launch an offensive on the city of Raqqa, considered to be the self-proclaimed capital of IS in Syria.

The trucks carrying the arsenal crossed into Syria from northern Iraq through the Simelka border crossing on two separate occasions on May 15 and May 20, Turkey's Daily Sabah reports.

The convoys reportedly moved to Hasakah and later headed to the Raqqa region where the SDF are currently battling Islamic State militants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question I would have to ask right now is, how long will Syria, Russia and Turkey allow this destabilisation to move forward in Syria?!?

Because the establishment of an independent Kurdistan will be seen as an existential threat by Turkey, who consider the Kurds an existential threat, and the Syrians and Russians, who don't dont want Syria having to yield one inch of its sovereign territory?!?

I don't know what the Vegas odds are on this, but I have to wonder; just when will American troops, fighting with the Kurds, be meeting up with Russian ground troops here?!?

Because my concern is, this is only a matter of when, not if, this happens, at this point.

MI5 FAILED TO STOP MANCHESTER BOMBER DESPITE ‘WARNINGS FROM FRIENDS’ – REPORT

A relative of the Manchester bomber warned British authorities he was “dangerous” and that he thought being a suicide bomber was “OK,” it has emerged, amid concerns that chances to stop him were missed.

On Monday night, Salman Abedi detonated a “highly sophisticated” nail bomb at Manchester Arena, killing 22 people including young children. Twenty people are in a critical condition in hospital. It was Britain’s worst terrorist attack since the 7/7 atrocity 12 years ago.

Abedi’s support for terrorism was reported this year to MI5, and five years ago friends had called Britain’s anti-terrorist hotline with concerns about his views, the Times reports.

It is unclear whether Abedi had been under any form of surveillance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are only two possible conclusions one can take away from this information.

Either that MI5 is a gang of bumbling, professionally impotent, inept, idiots; or they knew this might go down, but decided not to stop it in order to "numb" the British people to more of these attacks happening, as "the price of the British financial empire doing business" , and allowed it to happen, as a "justification" to surveille the British people more intensely, and create more draconian control of the internet.

There is no middle ground here, whatsoever.

And the bottom line here is, the people of the UK are being left completely unprotected from the blowback of the carnage their government has created in its actions against other countries, notably those in the Middle East and Africa.

To think that there will be utterly no consequences from invasions, and the accompanying murders, to expropriate resources to which the invading government, and its toady corporations, have no moral right; to regime change that government, making sure it is western-centric; and to insure that those resources will only be sold in specific currencies to specific countries, and not others, is absolute, utter, and complete madness.

And yet, this is the madness to which those in the bowels of power in the US, and UK cling, and use to "justify" their future military misadventures, ultimately causing the people of both countries to suffer.

So welcome to the "new normal" in the UK and Europe.

And unfortunately, I am very concerned that this kind of incident will continue, until someone in the governments of the US and UK has the horse-sense to start funding alternative energy that actually works, and can drive a tank, or power an airplane, making fossil fuel irrelevant.

Of course, that...would be logical.

CIVILIANS KILLED BY US LARGELY IGNORED AS ENDLESS GLOBAL WAR CONTINUES FROM

Contradicting a version of events presented by the U.S. military and reported widely by the corporate press, a human rights group and a journalist in Yemen are citing witnesses who said a raid by U.S. Navy SEALs on Monday night killed multiple innocent civilians and not just "Al Qaeda militants" as the Pentagon claimed.

"This new flawed raid by President Trump shows the US is not capable of distinguishing a terrorist from an innocent civilian."
—Kate Higham, Reprieve. Reprieve, a UK-based human rights group, cited witnesses from the village of Al-Jubah in Marib province, where the raid took place, and offered the names of five civilians killed as Nasser Ali Mahdi Al-Adhal; Al-Ghader Saleh Salem Al-Adhal; Saleh Al-Taffaf; Yasser Al-Taffaf Al-Adhel; and Shebreen Saeed Salem Al-Adhal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The medically fragile elderly, and infants, are ALWAYS Al Qaeda militants!" - Official US government souse.

But seriously, assassinating medically fragile elderly people, who are someone's grandpa, uncle, or dad, can be a wonderful recruiting tool to get more young men radicalised to the point of wanting to become jihadists in their own right.

It is a tool for creating perpetual war, and our military understand that; and yet, they keep doing it. And the most horrific thing about the US-enabled Saudi war against Yemen is, that the only possible answers have to be political rather than more warfare.

The pro-al-Qaeda group White Helmets who have recently been caught participating in a mass beheading, provided the US with footage of the aftermath of the alleged attack.

France’s Macron seeks to extend state of emergency to November

President Emmanuel Macron will ask France’s parliament to extend a state of emergency, in place since the 2015 attacks by Islamic State (IS) group militants, following this Monday’s suicide bombing in Manchester.

France’s new president said in a statement that he will ask lawmakers to prolong the measure from July 15, its current expiration date, until November 1. It would be the sixth extension of the state of emergency, which gives police exceptional powers.

He made the decision after a security meeting Wednesday in which top officials "studied the implications of this new terrorist attack on measures of protection to ensure the security of our compatriots".

The statement from the Elysée presidential palace once again noted “the bonds that unite France and the United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism”.

Holding hands, the president and First Lady Melania Trump walked solemnly to lay a wreath together upon the ashes of Holocaust victims, buried at the site's Hall of Remembrance. "Words can never describe the bottomless depths of that evil, or the scope of the anguish and destruction. It was history's darkest hour," Trump said in a short speech after the memorial ceremony. "It was the most savage crime against God and his children," said Trump, who is visiting Israel and the Palestinian Territories on the second leg of his first foreign trip since taking office in January.

Beyond the glitz and royal pageantry, President Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia in all likelihood had a main purpose to sell weapons, and to complete a gigantic $350 billion over the next decade. It will have weapon orders filled over time.

Catalonia Threatens Spain With "Financial Bloodbath"

Catalonia’s independence would set off Spain’s debt time-bomb... It would mean the loss of 25-30% of Spain’s gross domestic product (GDP), says Spain’s Minister of the Economy, Luis de Guindos. And that’s something the government “will never let happen.”

Thousands of breast cancer studies are totally bogus, warns science writer and author of new book

NPR science correspondent and author of the new book,“Rigor Mortis: How Sloppy Science Creates Worthless Cures, Crushes Hope, and Wastes Billions,” Richard Harris has shined a light on the many issues that plague the world of scientific research — and he’s exposed a dark industry secret: Many studies are actually totally worthless junk. According to Harris, thousands of breast cancer studies are totally useless because they were conducted using the wrong type of cells. Rather than using breast cancer cells, researchers had been using wrongly identified cells that were actually melanoma cancer cells — meaning thousands of papers had investigated and experimented with the wrong disease.

DO THE MATH: Here’s the rational analysis why 99% of current Bitcoin owners will never be able to sell Bitcoins for anything close to its imagined current value

The very fact that Bitcoin needs new people buying into the system in order to support its rapidly advancing prices is almost the classic definition of a Ponzi framework. The simultaneous fact that even very tiny selloffs cause the price of Bitcoin to substantially nosedive means that very few people can “get out” of Bitcoin at anywhere near the current high price. Imagine a rave club filled to maximum capacity with all exit doors blocked except one. Then imagine an electrical fire setting off a massive blaze, as recently happened in California. In such scenarios, not everybody gets out alive for the simple reason that the exits become choke points. Bitcoin suffers the same structural problem, but almost nobody realizes it yet because they are caught up in the Bitcoin hype that causes them to irrationally believe that Bitcoin can never go down. It’s the dot-com bubble all over again, for a whole new generation.

Czechs REJECT euro – poll finds citizens don’t want currency and EU ‘has no future’

An annual survey carried out by the country's Public Opinion Research Centre (CVVM) found the vast majority of those questioned remain unconvinced replacing the koruna with the euro would be beneficial.

A paltry 21 per cent of people questioned were in favour of joining the single currency – a slight improvement on last year, when just 17 per cent said they supported adopting the euro.

Scepticism towards the EU itself remains high, in a country heavily opposed to refugees from war-torn countries migrating to Europe.

Only 36 per cent of those polled believe there is a future for the EU, down from 39 per cent last year, while only 35 per cent were in favour of greater integration into the bloc.

Ransomware hits Australian hospitals after botched patch

Hospitals connected to Australian State of Queensland's integrated electronic medical record system (ieMR) are suffering outages attributed to patching against a ransomware attack.

Since the ransomware-de-jour is WannaCry/WannaCrypt, it's a fair bet that's what Queensland Health was working to patch, but somewhere along the line things have gone wrong.

The Cairns Post identifies Cairns Hospital as having system problems, and The Register has been told at least Townsville Hospital and Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital are also affected.

Orbital boffins cut four years off NASA mission to shiniest object in the Solar System

NASA has come up with a cunning plan that will allow it to shave four years of flight time off its mission to the biggest chunk of visible iron in the Solar System, and will use souped-up solar power to get there.

In January NASA approved the mission to send a probe out to the asteroid 16 Psyche, which is thought to be a remnant of a protoplanet core that got smashed apart eons ago. The asteroid, one of the larger objects in the Asteroid Belt, is around 90 per cent nickel-iron and is over 200km (120mi) across.

The NASA mission was due to launch in 2023, swing by Earth to get a gravity assist, then head off to Mars for more gravitational slingshotting, before getting to Psyche in 2028. But the steely-eyed rocket-folks of NASA have found that if they launch a year earlier, they can dump the Earth assist and still be there four years earlier than planned.

Wanna Cry Again? NSA’s Windows 'EsteemAudit' RDP Exploit Remains Unpatched

Brace yourselves for a possible 'second wave' of massive global cyber attack, as SMB (Server Message Block) was not the only network protocol whose zero-day exploits created by NSA were exposed in the Shadow Brokers dump last month.

Although Microsoft released patches for SMB flaws for supported versions in March and unsupported versions immediately after the outbreak of the WannaCry ransomware, the company ignored to patch other three NSA hacking tools, dubbed "EnglishmanDentist," "EsteemAudit," and "ExplodingCan."

'Not welcome here': Thousands march against Trump in Belgium

Thousands of protesters took to the streets Wednesday to protest U.S. President Donald Trump's arrival in the city he previously likened to a "hellhole."

"If you don't want Trump in Belgium clap your hands," chanted some, while others opted for "hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go."

The Moral Myopia of Trump’s Foreign Policy

Saudi Arabia outlaws Christianity as a public practice. There are no Christian churches in Saudi Arabia, and it is against the law to build them. The Saudi Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice actually prohibits the practice of any religion other than Islam. Freedom House, a US government- funded NGO, has designated Saudi Arabia as the "worst of the worst." And lest anyone forget, 15 of the 19 hijackers who flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing over 3,000 people, were Wahhabi Sunnis from Saudi Arabia. I wonder if Secretary of State Tillerson understands that the Saudi Kingdom openly violates religious freedom, freedom of the press, and basic inalienable human rights, especially for women.

FIRE BURN AND CAULDRON BUBBLE FOR TRUMP

Trump has made this huge mess and must now live with it. Yes, he is being treated unfairly by appointment of a special prosecutor when the titanic sleaze of the Clintons was never investigated. But that's what happens when you are widely detested. No mercy for Trump, a man without any mercy for others ... Isolated and besieged as Trump is, he may have to depend more on support from Israel and its American partisans rather than forcing a Mideast peace settlement. Israel insists there be no change to the status quo that leaves Palestine an open air prison. America has not so far become great again.

Trump's Trip and Taking Sides in the Middle East

... As usual, Iran is used as chief bogeyman, a habit that extends well beyond the Trump administration ... It is not Iran but instead another state [Israel] that has introduced nuclear weapons into the region and keeps the Middle East from becoming a nuclear weapons-free zone. Destabilizing activities? In the region's biggest ongoing conflict in Syria, Iran, rather than trying to upset the status quo, has been trying to preserve it by backing the incumbent regime, which has been in power for decades. The Saudis and other Gulf Arabs have been most aggressive in stoking rebellion, in the course of which they have shown little worry about aiding extremists in the process.

YET ANOTHER VIDEO SHOWS U.S.-FUNDED WHITE HELMETS ASSISTING PUBLIC EXECUTIONS IN REBEL-HELD SYRIA

Syria Civil Defense, popularly known as the White Helmets, can be seen in a new video assisting in a public execution in a rebel-held town in Syria. It is at least the second such execution video featuring members of the Nobel Prize-nominated group. The White Helmets have received at least $23 million in funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), a wing of the State Department. The British Foreign Office and other European governments have pitched in as well.

Mike Cernovich: Lindsey’s Leaker — How a Never Trump Legislative Aide with No National Security Experience Landed at the NSC

When Senator Lindsey Graham’s long-time legislative assistant Virginia Boney, who specialized in healthcare legislation, was hired to be a legislative affairs chief for the National Security Council, more than a few heads turned. Boney, who is anti-Trump, has no meaningful national security experience. She was also hired instead of several veterans who had applied for the position.

Grisly photos of scorched remnants of suicide bomber's backpack, detonator and shrapnel found on bloodied floor of Manchester Arena are leaked by US intelligence officials

Experts said it was the most sophisticated bomb seen in Britain since the Troubles in Northern Ireland and could be remotely, as well as by Abedi's handheld detonator.

So why wasn't it detonated remotely? A live operative is far more useful than a dead suicide bomber.

Trump sheds crocodile tears for 22 claimed concert deaths of ‘young, beautiful innocent people’ by ‘evil losers'; lies in omission of ~6 million horrific deaths from preventable poverty since his election that make 1.5 Trump Towers of corpses

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

President Trump remarked yesterday of his prayers and condolences for 22 claimed deaths of “young, beautiful innocent people” by “evil losers.”

Trump lies in omission of the ~6 million deaths since his election of other young, beautiful innocent people in gruesome slow-motion from preventable poverty. We can calculate the physical volume of 6 million bodies. If we assume an average human dimension of 5 feet tall, width of 1 foot, and depth of .5 foot, this average of 2.5 cubic feet times 6 million total 15 million cubic feet. The dimensions of Trump Tower are a base 76 by 144 feet, and a height of 861 feet for volume of ~9.5 million square feet if we calculate as a rectangular prism.

This means the pile of human bodies killed by ongoing preventable poverty just since Trump's election is equal in size to over 1.5 Trump Towers.

This is also roughly equal to three new Trump Towers of dead bodies every year.

ANCESTRY.COM TAKES DNA OWNERSHIP RIGHTS FROM CUSTOMERS AND THEIR RELATIVES

[5/24/17] Don’t use the AncestryDNA testing service without actually reading the Ancestry.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. According to these legal contracts, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com.

The family history website Ancestry.com is selling a new DNA testing service called AncestryDNA. But the DNA and genetic data that Ancestry.com collects may be used against “you or a genetic relative.” According to its privacy policies, Ancestry.com takes ownership of your DNA forever. Your ownership of your DNA, on the other hand, is limited in years.

It seems obvious that customers agree to this arrangement, since all of them must “click here to agree” to these terms. But, how many people really read those contacts before clicking to agree? And how many relatives of Ancestry.com customers are also reading?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is utterly insane, and represents the most completely subverted testing, and subsequent use, of DNA out there.
