Imagine What Would Happen if China Decided to Impose Economic Sanctions on the USA?

China is not dependent on US imports. Quite the opposite. America is an import led economy with a weak industrial and manufacturing base, heavily dependent on imports from the PRC.

Imagine what would happen if China following Washington’s threats decided from one day to the next to significantly curtail its “Made in China” commodity exports to the USA.

It would be absolutely devastating, disrupting the consumer economy, an economic and financial chaos.

‘FULL-FLEDGED ECONOMIC WAR’: MEDVEDEV SLAMS TRUMP’S ‘HUMILIATING’ CAVE-IN ON RUSSIA SANCTIONS

The US establishment has fully outwitted Donald Trump and used his administration’s weakness to declare a fully-fledged economic war on Russia, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said, adding, that the move leaves no doubt that bilateral ties will never improve.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump signed into law a bill imposing new sanctions on Russia, which Medvedev says has put an end to “hopes for improving our relations with the new US administration.”

“It is a declaration of a full-fledged economic war on Russia,” he wrote in a lengthy strong-worded Facebook post in both English and Russian. “Unless a miracle happens,” the law will affect US-Russian relations for decades, Medvedev wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Medvedev is absolutely correct in his assessment.

The demonisation of Russia continues in the articles by the presstitutes and whorespondents, and there is an unmistakable crescendo in the beating the drums for war against it.

Russia neither annexed Crimea, nor can be proven to have meddled in the 2016 elections; with the installation of these sanctions, Russia is getting punished for what it absolutely has not done.

There are many in the American Deep State who salivate over a potential shooting war with Russia, to prevent the rise of the ruble, and the decline in the US dollar in economic markets, and obfuscate the reality that Russian military hardware is in great demand, as it has been tested, and performed brilliantly, in Syria. Unlike US weapons (like the epic fail which is the continuing military nightmare of Lockheed Martin's F-35), Russia's weapons actually work as advertised on the battlefield.

Prime Minister Medvedev, unfortunately, this is precisely the agenda of the Deep American State right now; it is no "accident" that NATO and US troops are surrounding and encircling Russia right now, with large military exercises nearly at your very border.

At the moment, both the State Department and Pentagon are putting forward proposals to President Trump about the best way to arm Ukraine, as reported two days ago at the New York Times:

The Pentagon and State Department are Presenting Proposals to Arm Ukraine

Should President Trump follow through, and sign off on this, this act will be tantamount to the US government having declared war on Russia.

I am hoping - and praying - that the logical, peaceful, and reasonable challenges of a robust independent media to such a war can possibly prevent this; but right now, I am seeing the wheels of impending wars in motion at almost too great a velocity to overcome.

But at the moment, with the American economy poised on the sheer cliff edge of total collapse, there are, unfortunately, many in the bowels of power in this country who feel that a war - against any country they don't particularly like - is the only way to prevent such a collapse, or hide its true origins, which have resulted from intense governmental deficit spending, coupled with lousy errors in judgement by the US's Federal Reserve.

Omega-3 oils found to halt neuroinflammation that leads to Alzheimer’s disease

Past studies have shown that DHA and another omega-3 fatty acid, EPA, help maintain optimal brain health. A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that omega-3 rich foods like salmon, mackerel, and sardines help prevent the illness by promoting the flow of blood in the parts of the brain responsible for the regulation of learning and memory.

A 2013 study in the same journal found that combining omega-3 fatty acids with vitamin D could enhance the ability of the immune system to eliminate deposits of amyloid plaque in the brain, which are connected to the development of the disease.

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.”

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: 

Israel must be in a panic about now. They are running out of Nazis to wag at us to deflect criticism of what they are doing to the Palestinians. These last few trials show a clear trend. They are persecuting janitors, the guy who fed the dogs, and now an accountant!

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This cyber-spying on individuals by large corporations, like Google, has just reached epidemic proportions, and needs to be stopped.

WIKILEAKS RELEASES DOCS ON ‘DUMBO’ CIA TOOL ALLOWING CONTROL OF WEBCAMS

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.

WINGS FOR HIRE? EX-BLACKWATER CEO ERIK PRINCE REPORTEDLY OFFERING PRIVATE AIR FORCE FOR AFGHAN WAR

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

Thirdly, the Trump administration has demonstrated complete impotence, in the most humiliating manner, in transferring executive powers to Congress.

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.

"The sanctions are beginning to backfire on those who are introducing them, which is positive," Sechin told reporters.

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

    NEWLY UNEARTHED CIA MEMO: MEDIA ARE THE "PRINCIPAL VILLAINS"

    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.

    One of Jim’s quotes on how researchers should move forward:

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