Senate Republicans Banned Earmarks — Permanently

Senate Republicans adopted a permanent ban on earmarks Thursday, signaling to Democrats the oft-criticized practice won’t be tolerated so long as Republicans control the chamber.

Republicans passed the permanent ban at the urging of Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, who argued the GOP’s current policy, continually reinstating a two-year ban that has existed since 2011, was insufficient. The new policy, adopted with a 28-12 vote, effectively falls on both chambers of Congress, as any earmarked bills arising in the House of Representative would die in the Senate.

“The last thing taxpayers need is for the same politicians who racked up a $22 trillion national debt to go on an earmark binge,” Sasse said in a statement. “It’s pretty simple: Earmarks are a crummy way to govern and they have no business in Congress. Backroom deals, kickbacks, and earmarks feed a culture of constant incumbency and that’s poisonous to healthy self-government.”

Democratic Presidential Candidate Signs Sanctuary State Bill Into Law

Washington became the latest state to offer safe haven to illegal immigrants after Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee signed a “sanctuary” bill into law on Wednesday.

The legislation prohibits local law enforcement from asking about an individual’s immigration status or place of birth, with an exception if it pertains to a criminal investigation. State prisons and jails within are also barred from honoring voluntary “immigration holds” requested by federal authorities such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or from alerting them when a migrant is soon to be released from jail.

The new rules are considered some of the most restrictive in the country.

Trump Plans Executive Order To Help Lower Health-Care Costs

While Democrats dither over the virtues of 'Medicare for All', the Trump administration is about to embark on an all-out offensive to lower health-care costs in the US.

According to WSJ, Trump is preparing an executive order that would force health-care providers - hospitals, internists, specialists etc. - to disclose the discounted and negotiated rates for various procedures that they negotiate with insurance companies. The order would force more transparency among health-care pricing, an industry that is accustomed to transacting in private.

DARPA TO CREATE MIND-CONTROLLED WEAPONS

BY DAGNY TAGGART
Last year, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced that it was seeking noninvasive ways “to achieve high levels of brain-system communications without surgery.” The techniques would “allow precise, high-quality connections to specific neurons or groups of neurons.”

The agency wants to create mind-controlled weapons of war, as it (vaguely) explained in two recent press releases.

To achieve this goal, DARPA recently formed a program called Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3).

DARPA WANTS SOLDIERS TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL MACHINES WITH THEIR MINDS.
According to a press release published on May 20, 2019, the agency has awarded funding to six companies to support N3:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, what could possibly go wrong with systems like that, except for everything?!?

I would counsel extreme caution in the development of this technology; there is so much room for so much to go completely haywire, that it is hard to know where to start evaluation of severe potential problems, both for the weapons,and the soldiers who use them.

Unsanctioned signs in off-leash park ask owners to keep dogs away from Muslims

The city of Pitt Meadows is removing unsanctioned signs posted in one of its off-leash dog parks asking owners to keep their canines away from Muslim people.

A number of flyers were recently posted in Hoffman Park asking dog owners to keep their pets leashed.

"Many Muslims live in this area and dogs are considered filthy in Islam. Please keep your dogs on a leash and away from the Muslims who live in this community," the flyers read.

It's not clear who posted the signs in the community, but several were brought to city hall by area residents because they include the city logo and the email address for city council.

 NXIVM TRIAL: MEXICAN FORMER TEEN SLAVE TESTIFIES AS MORE MEXICO TRAFFICKING CONNECTIONS EXPOSED

SOURCE: BIG LEAGUE POLITICS
A former NXIVM sex cult slave named “Daniela” testified Thursday in the trial of cult leader Keith Raniere, noting that she joined the cult at age 16 in 2002.

The alleged visa and immigration fraud involved in Daniela’s years with the cult underscores the extent to which NXIVM had deep connections to powerful people in Mexico, including Emiliano Salinas, the son of a former Mexican president.

Robert Gavin of the Albany Times-Union reported:

The witness said her tourist visa and her father's visa were taken in Atlanta in October 2004. She went back to Mexico, she said, and Raniere arranged for her to fly to Canada and get picked up on Christmas Eve and taken to Albany. But the plan had problems.#NXIVM #NXIVMTrial

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting, to see how deep the "friendships" of the cult members, reached high up in political terms; it may be that some US politicians may need to "retire" to "spend more time with their families", if the real ugly hits a wall here, and names are named.

SUPERBUGS AND THE ULTIMATE ECONOMIC WEAPON: FOOD

SOURCE: CHARLES HUGH SMITH
The food-exporting superpowers are easy to identify.

As my esteemed colleague Michael Snyder chronicled in a recent Zero Hedge post, world agricultural production is under assault from extreme weather and diseases such as African swine fever. Floods & Drought Devastate Crops All Over The Planet; Is A Global Food Crisis Be Coming?

Everyone understands extreme weather is a danger to food production. The overuse of antibiotics is less well understood. As this article explains, most antibiotics are given to livestock, which then become breeding grounds for antibiotic-resistant microbes, which are known as superbugs once they develop immunity to all conventional antibiotics.

Are antibiotics turning livestock into superbug factories?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the reason, that you need to know how your food is processed, and what has been done to it, in order to build, as much as possible, an antibiotic-free lifestyle.

I know that most moms and dads I know, would rather buy fresh, organic meat, with which to fee their families; some chains have started doing this, at least for a small selection of meats and vegetables; this is starting to happen at both our "big box" store, and the smaller grocery store we patronize.

So please, the next time you are at your favorite store, ask your butcher, and your veggies supervisor, to make more available for you, in terms of organic produce and meat.

Yes, it will be a lot more expensive, which is why you need to learn to use meat as a "seasoning", rather than the full course in your meals. But the opportunities for creating a healthier life for yourself, and your family , will be well worth the cost.

THEY'RE BACK! 3D-PRINTED GUNS ARE UNSTOPPABLE AND HERE TO STAY

SOURCE: MAC SLAVO VIA SHTFPLAN

An entirely decentralized network of self-defense rights advocates have taken to the internet to provide plans for 3D-printed guns. It looks like the 3D guns are unregulatable and unstoppable. They’re anonymously sharing the blueprints and advice while simultaneously building an unstoppable community.

Unlike previous attempts to popularize 3D-printed guns, this newer operation is entirely decentralized. There’s no headquarters, no trademarks, and no real leader. The people behind it already understand that this means they can’t be stopped by governments and their laws or regulations.

“If they [the government] were to come after me, they’d first have to find my identity,” says Ivan the Troll, a member of the group. “I’m one of many, many like-minded individuals who’re doing this sort of work.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And to the governments who really thought that they were going to be able to regulate and control this; whatever window you thought you had, is long gone.

175 yrs in jail for revealing war crimes? Where's MSM outrage over persecution of Assange?

Just imagine, as I discussed here if Julian was a Russian dissident, being treated in the same way by the Russian authorities. Then we'd be seeing column after column in ‘serious newspapers’ urging people to join the ‘Free Assange’ campaign. Celebrities would be falling over themselves to show their support. There'd be calls for yet more sanctions to be imposed on Russia, and to be maintained until the ‘political prisoner’ was released. But who so far has come out in defense of Assange, save for Pamela Anderson and Roger Waters? Where are the great ‘human rights defenders’?

Weather WARNING: Solar minimum arrives EARLY and it could bring long EXTREME cold

Cosmic forecasting website Space Weather said the lack of sunspots is similar to the last solar minimum.

The site stated: “The sun has been without sunspots for 79 days so far this year – more than half the time.

“To find a similar number of blank suns, you have to go back to 2009 when the sun was experiencing the deepest solar minimum in a century.”

Earth’s host star was not expected to head into a solar minimum until around 2020 and, if the phenomenon has arrived early, this will mean a prolonged cold snap.

BREXIT BOMBSHELL: Boris Johnson warns 'prepare for NO DEAL' as he unveils strategy

BORIS JOHNSON has warned the UK the way to get a good Brexit deal is to “prepare for a no deal” as the leading candidate to take over as Prime Minister from Theresa May outlined his EU exit strategy.

The former Foreign Secretary, who has announced he would like to replace Theresa May as the leader of the Conservative Party, said this would be the best way to proceed if Britain is to negotiate a suitable Brexit agreement. Just hours after the Prime Minister sensationally announced she was resigning, Mr Johnson told an economic in Switzerland: "We will leave the EU on October 31, deal or no deal. The way to get a good deal is to prepare for a no deal.”

Beverly Hills has long been anything but a smoker’s paradise.

Death Of Press Freedoms? Julian Assange Charged Under The Espionage Act On 17 Counts

By Aaron Kesel

WikiLeaks founder and former editor Julian Assange has been charged under The Espionage Act on 17 new counts in a superseding indictment for his role in obtaining and publishing classified military and diplomatic documents prior to his extradition hearing on May 30th, Reuters reported.

The charges carry a shocking sentence of 175 years in prison if found guilty by the secret Espionage court — a horrendous statement to send to journalists and truth tellers.

“The Department of Justice wants to imprison Assange for crimes allegedly committed outside of the United States. This extraterritorial application of US law is explicit throughout the indictment… thereby classifying any territory in the world as subject to US law,” WikiLeaks wrote in a statement, adding...

The Bitter Sweet Symphony dispute is over

For the last 22 years, The Verve haven't made a penny from Bitter Sweet Symphony, after forfeiting the royalties to The Rolling Stones.

The song was embroiled in a legal battle shortly after its release, after The Verve sampled an orchestral version of The Stones' song The Last Time.

As a result, writer Richard Ashcroft had to sign over his rights to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards - until now.

Speaking as he received a lifetime achievement prize at the Ivor Novello Awards, Ashcroft announced: "As of last month, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards signed over all their publishing for Bitter Sweet Symphony, which was a truly kind and magnanimous thing for them to do."

Westpac warning: Capital proposals will add $6000 a year to cost of average Auckland mortgage

Proposed changes to increase the amount of capital banks hold could add $6000 a year to the cost of an Auckland mortgage and have a "significant negative impact" on the economy, Westpac bank is warning.

The New Zealand arm of the Australian-owned bank has today made public its submission to the Reserve Bank's proposed capital changes.

Submissions closed last Friday on the RBNZ's proposals which include a near doubling of the minimum common equity banks should hold from 8.5 per cent currently to 16 per cent.

The proposed increase is designed to make banks safer and better designed to handle periods of financial stress by holding enough capital to reduce the probability of a financial crisis in New Zealand to a one in 200-year event.

Huawei’s Android Replacement Smartphone OS Will Be Called HongMeng- Report

After Google restricted Huawei’s use of Android for its future smartphones, effectively cutting off Huawei from everything Google other than the Android Open Source Project, new reports from Chinese media have come out with the claim that Huawei’s in-house operating system (OS) for its smartphones will reportedly be called HongMeng.

While it’s been an open secret that Huawei has been working on its own operating system as a contingency plan in case the US-China trade war escalated the way that it now has, apparently, the company has been working on the new OS since as far back as 2012. The reports in the Chinese media are also claiming that the OS is being tested already and will gradually replace Android on Huawei’s hardware soon.

WannaCry? Hundreds of US schools still haven’t patched servers [Updated]

Publicly accessible security-scan data shows that many public organizations have failed to do more than put a bandage over long-standing system vulnerabilities that, if successfully exploited, could bring their operations to a standstill.

While the method by which RobbinHood ransomware infected the network of Baltimore City two weeks ago is still unknown, insiders within city government have pointed to the incomplete efforts by the Office of Information Technology to get a handle on the city's tangle of software, aging servers, and wide-flung network infrastructure. Baltimore isn't even the only city to have been hit by ransomware in the last month—Lynn, Massachusetts, and Cartersville, Georgia, both had electronic payment systems taken offline by ransomware this month. Greenville, North Carolina, was struck by the same RobbinHood ransomware affecting Baltimore in April.

It appears the Chinese ICT giant had anticipated escalation of the bitter China-US impasse in making the Cambridge land acquisition as part of multi-billion dollar investment in the UK economy.
