Europe's Banking Dysfunction Worsens

“While the US and the UK have been mired in political chaos this year, the EU has enjoyed improved economic conditions and some political windfalls. The question now is whether this good news will inspire long-needed EU and eurozone reforms, or merely fuel complacency – and thus set the stage for another crisis down the road.”

Shall We Fight Them All?

Saturday, Kim Jong Un tested an ICBM of sufficient range to hit the U.S. mainland. He is now working on its accuracy, and a nuclear warhead small enough to fit atop that missile that can survive re-entry.

Unless we believe Kim is a suicidal madman, his goal seems clear. He wants what every nuclear power wants — the ability to strike his enemy’s homeland with horrific impact, in order to deter that enemy.

Kim wants his regime recognized and respected, and the U.S., which carpet-bombed the North from 1950-1953, out of Korea.

BBC accused of ‘normalizing’ Islamic burqa in ‘propaganda’ video

Social media users have accused the BBC of “blatant propaganda” after the state broadcaster published a YouTube video featuring burqa-clad women addressing common questions about the full-face veil.

After the video, entitled ‘Things Not To Say To Someone Who Wears a Burqa’, was published on the BBC Three YouTube channel, the broadcaster received a volley of accusations, with users branding it a leftist propaganda machine perpetuating a “regressive” ideology.

Political commentator Julie Lenarz was among those who took to Twitter to brand the BBC’s attempt to normalize burqas and niqabs “abhorrent.”

This piece of legislation will likely go down in history as one of the greatest geopolitical screw-ups in post-Cold War history:

Surge in Israeli attacks on journalists

During the two weeks of sustained Palestinian protests in occupied East Jerusalem over Israel’s attempts to tighten control over the al-Aqsa mosque compound, press groups monitored a surge in violations against journalists.

The Ramallah-based Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms (MADA) recorded dozens of violations committed by Israeli occupation forces, who reportedly attacked, arrested and threatened journalists covering Palestinian protests in the city.

Israeli police barred journalists from entering the Old City of Jerusalem, while Israeli settlers and tourists entered freely.

Ex-Auschwitz guard healthy enough to be imprisoned: court

A 96-year-old former SS guard known as the “Bookkeeper of Auschwitz” is ready to start a new chapter in life – four years in the slammer for Nazi war crimes. Oskar Gröning, whose job was to count money taken from Jews who arrived at the notorious death camp, was deemed physically healthy enough to be imprisoned, according to the Hanover prosecutor’s office, the International Business Times reported. Gröning was convicted in 2015 of aiding and abetting the murder of 300,000 Jews, but his lawyers had sought to have his sentence deferred. The prosecutor’s office said Wednesday that it had rejected his lawyers’ appeal, but they may try to appeal again because they claim he had not been physically examined for the medical report.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The Problem with Trump Is Voters Elected the Wrong President

He was supposed to lose, not win. Hillary claimed it was her turn. It was time to break the glass ceiling and elect a woman as president.

Besides, she claimed, she had lots of experience as first lady/co-president with husband Bill, US senator and secretary of state.

She ignored her deplorable political record only a despot, imperial warrior, and Wall Street crook would admire.

Google’s Tracking Of Offline Spending Sparks Call For Federal Investigation

Google recently announced a suite of new tools for advertisers, allowing them to link a customer’s offline credit card purchases with the things they look at online. Shockingly, some privacy advocates think this sort of tracking goes too far and have called on the federal government to investigate.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center this morning filed a complaint [PDF] with the Federal Trade Commission, asking the agency to investigate Google’s Store Sales Management consumer profiling technology and stop the company from tracking customers’ in-store purchases.

According to EPIC, Google’s system, which can allegedly track 70% of all credit and debt card transactions in the U.S., puts the personal information — including product searches, location searches and payment information — of shoppers and Internet users at risk of hacks or other data breaches.

WikiLeaks released new documents on Thursday within the Vault 7 documents, which contain information on CIA’s hacking tools from the Dumbo project.

“Dumbo is a capability to suspend processes utilizing webcams and corrupt any video recordings that could compromise a PAG deployment. The PAG (Physical Access Group) is a special branch within the CCI (Center for Cyber Intelligence); its task is to gain and exploit physical access to target computers in CIA field operations,” WikiLeaks said in a press release.

The tool allows for the identification, control and manipulation of the monitoring and detection systems, like webcams and microphones, on a target computer running the Microsoft Windows operating system. It requires a direct access to the computer as it is run from an USB stick.

Former Blackwater founder Erik Prince, who earlier urged Donald Trump to appoint a US “viceroy” to win the Afghan war, has reportedly pitched up a “business proposal” to Kabul, offering a fully-fledged private air force to back the local army’s operations.

Prince, the founder and former CEO of private military company Blackwater (now rebranded Academi), has floated a business proposal offering a privately-manned “turn-key composite air wing” to the Afghan government, whose troops steadily lose ground to the Taliban, the Military Times reported on Thursday.

Prince's plan, cited by the newspaper, was reportedly submitted to the Afghans back in March. It includes providing “high speed response” as well as close-air support for Afghanistan’s army fighting the Islamists. The private air force’s fixed-wing planes, attack helicopters and drones would be flown by hired pilots, but “weapons release decisions will still be made by Afghans.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Blackwater, now rebranded as Academi, failed spectacularly in Iraq:

The Dark Truth About Blackwater

Blackwater’s Baghdad massacre is a reminder of how the US became what it hated in Iraq

Blackwater and the Iraq Water Time Warp

Before shooting in Iraq, a warning on Blackwater

Iraq war logs: military privatisation run amok

Nisour Square Massacre

Academi's, and Prince's "strategic thinking" (if one can call it that), has not changed, no matter how much carnage and loathing they created in Iraq.

The Afghani government needs to think very carefully about hiring anyone Prince suggests at this point in Afghanistan's history, and review their epic, and spectacular fail in Iraq.

And to President Trump, Congress, the State Department, and the Pentagon; who, please, is going to be paying for this operation?!? American taxpayers, after the extent of Blackwater's epic fail in Iraq?!?

Mr. President, and to anyone in his administration (or any of the "Alphabet Soup Agencies" who read this blog), there is no military metric by which we can characterise the US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan a success, 16 years on.

This country is not called "the grave of empires" for no good reason.

The only guy who was EVER able to hold this country together, by a system of alliances and arranged marriages, was Alexander the Great; and that was only for 3 years.

Mr. President, the only intelligent thing to do now, unless you want to commit 500,000 troops to this war (which we do not, and will not have, unless you and Congress order a return of the draft), is to remove US and NATO troops from Afghanistan as quickly as safely possible, then negotiate with whatever government left standing in Kabul for the oil pipeline rights, and the mineral rights.

After all the blood and money spent here, this is the only moral, and right thing to do.

You inherited this war from your Village Idiot Predecessor, President George Bush, enabled by Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, via their "magical thinking" to believe that a minimum number of troops would be all that it would take to invade and hold this country.

They were spectacularly, entirely wrong in this; and the cost in American lives, lost on the premise of a big fat lie, spun to convince the American people that this war was just, when the real goal was to control Afghani oil pipelines, has been enough, sir.

This is not your dishonor, or your failure. You simply got stuck with this.

Time to rethink Afghanistan, Mr. President, and do the right thing.

Russian Prime Minister calls new U.S. sanctions against Russia 'all-out trade war'

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called President Donald Trump’s signing of sanctions against Russia an “all-out trade war.”

“First of all, any hope of improving our relations with the new U.S. administration is at an end. Secondly, an all-out trade war has been declared on Russia. Thirdly, the Trump administration has demonstrated complete impotence, in the most humiliating manner, in transferring executive powers to Congress. This changes the alignment of power in U.S. political circles,” Medvedev said.

Killing Europe: US launches Sanctions War 2.0 against Old World

Besides the important political dimension of this law which calls on Russian authorities in the form of an ultimatum to curtail their political, military, and media activity beyond Russia's borders, the main aspect of this legislative initiative is its targeting of the Russian energy and banking sectors. The bill limits the maximum volume of investments allowed in oil and gas projects to the point that any company investing more than $5 million a year in Russian energy projects will automatically be subject to sanctions.

In other words, this aspect of the sanctions is also directed against European energy companies, in particular those party to the Nord Stream 2 project. The new sanctions also prohibit companies doing business in the US from participating in energy projects in which the Russian side owns less than 1/3 of shares.

Chrome web dev plugin with 1m+ users hijacked, crams ads into browsers

A popular Chrome extension was hijacked earlier today to inject ads into browsers, and potentially run malicious JavaScript, after the plugin's creator was hacked.

Chris Pederick, maker of the Web Developer for Chrome extension, is urging anyone who uses his programming tool to update to version 0.5 or later. That's because miscreants apparently phished his Google account, updated the software to version 0.4.9, and pushed it out to its 1,044,000 users.

That booby-trapped build fetched JavaScript code from the web and ran it within people's browsers: the code forcibly slapped ads on pages, and may have done worse. If you installed v0.4.9, you should upgrade to the clean v0.5 replacement immediately, and consider changing passwords or nullifying login tokens and cookies used on sites visited while using the infected extension.

This is How CIA Disables Security Cameras During Hollywood-Style Operations

WikiLeaks has just unveiled another classified CIA project, dubbed 'Dumbo,' which details how CIA agents hijack and manipulate webcams and microphones in Hollywood style "to gain and exploit physical access to target computers in CIA field operations."

The Dumbo CIA project involves a USB thumb drive equipped with a Windows hacking tool that can identify installed webcams and microphones, either connected locally, wired or wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Once identified, the Dumbo program allows the CIA agents to:

  • Mute all microphones
  • Disables all network adapters
  • Suspends any processes using a camera recording device
  • Selectively corrupted or delete recordings
  • Aug 03 07:33


    A new declassified CIA report unearthed by the FOIA investigative cooperative MuckRock contains some shocking commentary on how the intelligence community views and interacts with the media. The 1984 series of internal memos, part of the CIA’s recent CREST release (CIA Records Search Tool) of over 900,000 newly declassified documents, were drafted in response to a study on unauthorized leaks and disclosures written by legendary CIA officer Eloise Page.

    The most startling sections from the CIA memos - all marked "SECRET" - reveal how CIA views the first amendment and journalistic freedoms: "Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and the power of the media to publish in this country is nearly absolute."

    Below are among the most significant sections from the 1984 formerly Secret report.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The utter and complete contempt, flavored by fear and loathing of a free press, which is thoroughly and flagrantly expressed in this CIA memo, is damning in the extreme.

    These people are not there to protect We the People; they exist only to protect the Deep State in this country, and its warmongering, financial, and hegemonic agenda.

    Appreciating leading research of Jim Marrs (1943-2017)

    *hyperlinks/videos live at source*

    Jim Marrs was a multiple best-selling author of crucial historical events demonstrating the presence and domination of a .01% rogue state empire class dominating government, economics, and media/education.

    Jim in his own words from last year courtesy of InfoWars’ (10 minutes):

    I personally learned much from Jim. I read six of his books and watched perhaps a dozen lectures on YouTube. Jim’s work on JFK’s assassination caught my attention in 2004; I purchased and watched multiple times his 2002 dvd Proof, and was struck by his journalistic professionalism, command of objective data from unsubstantiated spin, and sense of humor.

    Jim’s humor especially struck me: he found paradoxical ease to accept our factual conditions of domination, and do what he humbly could to understand and communicate.

    We learn much more all together than anyone on their own.

Apart from China, Glavkosmos is also considering the possibilities of space cooperation with India, Brazil, South Africa, Nicaragua, Myanmar, Chile, Peru and Armenia and their involvement in Russian projects, the company said in its annual report. Specifically, Glavkosmos is holding preparations in Brazil for a tender for the delivery of space images to that country. It was reported earlier that China was interested in buying the world’s most powerful Russian-made RD rocket engines produced by Energomash while Russian Space Systems showed interest in Chinese electronic components.

    US senators urge FIFA to investigate Russia’s alleged exploitation of North Koreans

    A group of eight US Senators wrote a letter to FIFA President Gianni Infantino urging that the world’s football governing body open an investigation into Russia’s alleged exploitation of North Korean workforce at a construction site of a stadium for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The Guardian reported in May that numerous alleged violations took place in regards to workers during the construction of the football stadium in Russia’s second largest city of Saint Petersburg. According to the daily, heads of the football federations of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland expressed their concern with labor conditions of North Korean workers at the construction site. "Protecting workers and athletes from forced labor must be a key element of those commitments. If FIFA fails to take action against Russia and North Korea, it will be perceived as tolerating these countries’ heinous practices," according to the letter.

    Kadyrov rescues stolen Chechen children from Syria

    The head of the North Caucasian republic stressed that special emphasis has been placed on finding children in Syria and Iraq, who were taken out of Russia, which began on his order several months ago. He noted that this work has its own specifics, and therefore the details are not disclosed, so as not to put at risk those who work there and as well as not risk the lives of children. Kadyrov wrote that during this operation, the whereabouts of more taken children from Chechnya and other regions of the Russian Federation became known. As a rule, all parents are dead. Earlier it was reported that Kadyrov helped return a 6-year-ol girl, Liza Ukhanova, to her father, after the mother of the girl tried to take her to a Syrian terrorist camp via Turkey.

    Russia Shows off the World's Largest Submarine During Navy Day Parade (VIDEO)

    This Navy Day was particularly impressive. 5,000 sailors aboard 50 ships and submarines from the Baltic, Northern, Caspian and Black Sea Fleets all took part in the parade in St. Petersburg. Rossiya 1 has some great coverage of the day's festivities, as well as an amazing (but frankly too short) tour of the Dmitriy Donskoi, the world's largest submarine.

    Dmitry Medvedev: Trump Is a Cuck, Any Hope of Better Relations Is Gone

    First, any hope of improving our relations with the new US administration is over. Second, the US just declared a full-scale trade war on Russia. Third, the Trump administration demonstrated it is utterly powerless, and in the most humiliating manner transferred executive powers to Congress. This shifts the alignment of forces in US political circles. What does this mean for the U.S.? The American establishment completely outplayed Trump. The president is not happy with the new sanctions, but he could not avoid signing the new law. The purpose of the new sanctions was to put Trump in his place. Their ultimate goal is to remove Trump from power. An incompetent player must be eliminated. At the same time, the interests of American businesses were almost ignored. Politics rose above the pragmatic approach. Anti-Russian hysteria has turned into a key part of not only foreign (as has been the case many times), but also domestic US policy (this is recent).

    The Chinese Dragon Awakens

    First, Beijing has recently opened up its first military overseas base in Djibouti, within the super-strategic Mandeb Strait in the horn of Africa; this will help secure the passage of China's exports to Europe and imports of oil from the Middle East through the Red Sea and the Suez Canal. With wars currently under way in Yemen and Somalia and with Djibouti's and Eritrea's territorial disputes over the Dumeira region, where Ethiopia could be dragged in, the strategic importance of this base cannot be overstated; China is now better prepared to ensure its vital trade routes remain open to navigation. The Chinese base is now one of the six military bases regional and global powers have in the country (US, France, Italy, Japan and Saudi Arabia). The military base complements Beijing's position as a major investor in Africa, where China is now Africa's largest trading partner since 2009—bypassing the USA.

    "Neutral" Sweden to Host 20,000 NATO Troops

    For three weeks in September 2017, Sweden will be turned into a military training ground. A third of the country, especially the capital Stockholm, the second largest city Gothenburg and the island of Gotland will be designated training areas. In total there will be about 20,000 participating soldiers, from the United States, Finland, France, Estonia, Norway and Denmark, in addition to soldiers from the host country. Historically, Sweden managed to stay out of war for over 180 years, from 1814 against Napoleon, until the the era after the collapse of the Soviet Union. This neutrality policy was, and still is, hugely popular in population and even with many politicians. The same goes for the policy of no nuclear weapons on Swedish soil...

    Washington to strike North Korea on September 1?

    The authorities of the United States of America urged US citizens residing in the DPRK (North Korea) to return to their homeland before September 1. "US citizens wishing to travel to North Korea would have to obtain a special validation for their passports, which would only be granted in limited circumstances," the US State Department said in a statement. For the time being, it is only journalists and employees of humanitarian organizations that can enter the territory of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea holding US passports. As soon as the travel ban statement was made public, a number of experts suggested that Washington was going to strike North Korea after September 1, given that the two sides have exchanged a number of bellicose statements before.

    Iraq stands on the brink another devastating war

    What will happen to Iraq after the Islamic State terrorist organization is defeated in Mosul? Unfortunately, there are too many things that exclude chances for peace to return to this war-torn country. The liberation of Mosul from ISIS militants was seen as the completion of a terrible stage in modern Iraqi history. It would seem that Iraq is supposed to see a new era of peaceful construction and restoration of the state, the rise of its economy. This period is nowhere near, though. There is a plethora of problems that Iraq needs to face before it can hope for peace to come. First and foremost, it goes about the referendum on the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan, scheduled for September of this year, as well as about forthcoming parliamentary and local elections in 2018. These two milestone issues are directly related to issues of the national and territorial unity of Iraq.

    Royal Advisors Have Advocated False Flag Terrorism for More Than 2,000 Years

    Kautilya (also called “Chanakya”) was a royal advisor thousands of years ago in ancient India. And his writing is considered as an important precursor to much modern thought. Wikipedia notes:

    He is considered the pioneer of the field of political science and economics in India, and his work is thought of as an important precursor to classical economics.

    2,300 years ago – in the 4th century B.C. – Kautilya advocated the use of false flag attacks:

    The brother of a seditious minister may put forward his claim for inheritance. While the claimant is lying at night at the door of the house of the seditious minister or elsewhere, a fiery spy … may murder him and declare “Alas! the claimant for inheritance is thus murdered (by his brother).” Then taking the side of the injured party, the king may punish the other (the seditious minister).

    Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March.

    But incredibly Awan — the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist and con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud — was never detained or forced to stay in the United States. Her arrest in fact was blocked by then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI sources said.

    One of the world's most lucrative industries, spending on cancer drugs reached an all-time high last year, as it was valued at more than $100 billion. Spending on cancer drugs increased 6.5 percent annually over the past five years and is expected to continue growing at a rate of 8 percent each year through 2018, according to figures provided by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.

    That spending is highly concentrated, as the US and five of Europe's largest countries account for nearly two-thirds of the entire market.

    Petitioning Senator Kamala Harris and 8 othersJustice for 19 yr old girl beaten by police and maliciously attacked by K9 police dog.

    Tatyana Hargrove is a 19 yr old girl who was beaten by Bakersfield police and maliciously attacked by a K9 police dog while riding her bike home. The reason? Police say they mistook her for an adult male suspect but throughout the encounter, Tatyana was never told why she was being arrested. “After they beat me and threw me in the cop car, that’s when they told me,” she said.

    Tatyana stopped for a moment while riding her bike when she saw three police cars and an officer pointing a gun at here. Police asked if she was just a grocery store where earlier that day police received a report of a man with a machete who attempted to stab an employee. They were looking for a 30-year-old black male nearly 6 feet tall with shaved head and goatee and weighing 160lbs. Tatyana is 5 feet, 2 inches tall and only weighs 120 pounds.

    In a youtube video upload-dated August 1st, he reveals from his inside FBI and Washington DC Police Department sources — now, long before the Justice Department’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be presenting his official ‘findings’ to the nation — that the charges that Russia had anything to do with the leaks from the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to Wikileaks, that those charges spread by the press, were a CIA-planted lie, and that what Wikileaks had gotten was only leaks (including at least from the murdered DNC-staffer Seth Rich), and were not from any outsider (including ’the Russians’)

    On Wednesday, Servco Pacific Inc. Chairman and CEO Mark Fukunaga and Hawaii Gov. David Ige will be among the officials scheduled to break ground on the company's hydrogen station, the first such station to be built on Oahu.

    Located at 2850 Pukoloa St., Honolulu, the facility is expected to be completed by early 2018 and will electrolyze water to produce hydrogen on site. The target market for the station will be future owners of the hydrogen-fuel-cell powered Toyota Mirai. Servco first brought that alternative fuel vehicle to the Islands in 2016, making Hawaii the second state in the nation to receive them, and will begin limited sales of the vehicle when the hydrogen station has been built.
