THE SAUDIS DEMAND TOTAL SURRENDER BUT QATAR MAY NOT FOLD

Many people believe that Qatar will soon give in to recent Saudi demands and threats. I first though so too but have changed my opinion. Qatar will likely hold out way longer than anyone assumes and fight more intensive and much longer than foreseen. The Saudi "young leader" has now given Qatar 24 hours to submit to 10 demands. These include (unconfirmed) the dismantling of Al Jazeera, breaking off of all diplomatic relations with Iran and (the Israeli demand of) ending all support for the Muslim Brotherhood and especially Hamas. The Saudis threaten with a military invasion.

Starving Indian Farmers Eat Rats as Protest in Delhi

The Rats weren't skinned or cooked.They were eaten whole and live,no curry!

Nita Bhalla |

(Reuters) Indian farmers hit by drought and debt displayed the skulls of fellow farmers, believed to have committed suicide, and placed live rats in their mouths at a protest on Monday calling on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to save them from starvation.

The farmers, who traveled to the Indian capital from the southern state of Tamil Nadu, say lack of rains over the last year have led to crop failure, forcing many to take loans from banks and moneylenders to survive.

ISIS RECRUITER WHO RADICALISED LONDON BRIDGE ATTACKERS WAS PROTECTED BY MI5

The terrorists who rampaged across London on the night of 3 June were part of a wider extremist network closely monitored by MI5 for decades. The same network was heavily involved in recruiting Britons to fight with jihadist groups in Syria, Iraq and Libya.

Police have confirmed that Khuram Shazad Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba were the three terrorists shot dead after participating in a brutal van and knife attack in the London Bridge area.

According to press reports, both Butt and Redouane were longstanding members of the proscribed extremist network formerly known as al-Muhajiroun. After 9/11, the group operated under different names such as Shariah4UK, Muslims4Crusades and Islam4UK. Originally founded by Lebanese firebrand, Omar Bakri Mohammed, who was banned from returning the UK after the 7/7 attacks, the network was later run by Bakri’s deputy, Anjem Choudary.

RED FLAGS, MISSED

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Then why were British intelligence and police unable to stop this from happening?!?

The biggest question now, is, cui bono?!? Who benefits from allowing terrorists to strike at random in the UK?!?

Let's just say that those in the bowels of power in the UK, fronted by Prime Minister May, have benefited greatly, and see their wish of putting the internet under total government control coming nearer;
THERESA MAY TO CREATE NEW INTERNET THAT WOULD BE CONTROLLED AND REGULATED BY GOVERNMENT; The British Deep State has passed a bill to abolish cryptography; Cryptography killed by back-door legislation; and wants to toss human rights laws that hurt terror suppression. Theresa May rip up human rights laws which impede new terror legislation.

And how does one accomplish creating fertile ground in the minds of the British voters to accept such draconian laws which may be shaping up here?!?

It is very simple; by allowing terror to happen, then using the dead and wounded bodies as a "bloody shirt" to wave at the crowds, while you are demanding these changes in the law.

And Prime Minister May, a word here, please; the kinds of legislation you have both passed, and are proposing, will not alleviate
the kinds of terror attacks under which the UK, and Europe, have been suffering.

When the countries from which many of these refugees come have been regime changed, generally through war, and those wars have left them with absolutely no power over their own personal and national destiny; when people have been broken, by the sheer depth and breadth of their dispossession, courtesy of countries like the US and UK, which have a pretty dismal track record of accusing a country of doing something it didn't; invading and regime changing that country in order to expropriate resources to which they have utterly no moral right, such individuals are ripe for radicalisation and violence.

You, and the rest of the British government, must understand that to expect otherwise is both disingenuous, and very dangerous for your people, as recent events have proven.

The biggest resource that your country, and the US, want to control, are energy resources in the Middle East and Africa.

And here is my proposal, which is guaranteed to ratchet down your, and my, country's eternal lust for controlling fossil fuels.

Both countries have some of the best scientists and engineers in the world; I suggest that the US and UK develop an energy consortium, and challenge scientists and engineers from both countries to develop workable, alternative energy solutions, then patent the result and sell it, dividing the resources equitably, and making sure that the universities which were the brain trust on this get handsomely compensated for their efforts.

Both your and my countries can do this; if there is a will, there is a way, Madam Prime Minister.

But if there is no push toward such a solution, the world will know that random terror attacks in the UK and beyond are, in your perspective, "just the cost of doing business" in your country's militant resource-scrambling and extraction around the world.

Vladimir Putin’s 17 years in power: the scorecard

Mr. Putin can’t seem to get a break in the western media. I watched his recent interview with CBS’s Megyn Kelly and it’s all, “did Russia interfere in our election,” “did your ambassador meet with Trump’s election officials,” “isn’t it true that you’re a corrupt murderous thug,” etc. Only in response to Kelly’s last question did Mr. Putin get to name a handful of his achievements in Russia. But someone ought to better prepare his talking points on this score. The below excerpt from my upcoming book summarizes how Russia has changed during the 17 years since Mr. Putin has been at helm.

Intelligence chiefs: No pressure from Trump administration on Russia probe

Two US intelligence agency chiefs refused to say on the record Wednesday whether President Donald Trump asked them to downplay investigations into whether there was collusion between Russia and Trump's presidential campaign last year.

When asked by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida during a Senate intelligence committee hearing, "Are prepared to say you have never been asked?" Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers declined to answer.

"I am not prepared to go down that road right now," Coats said. Rogers referred to earlier statements he made saying he wouldn't comment on conversations with the President.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I watched the hearings and all these intelligence chiefs stated there was no pressure, but Coats and Rogers declined to discuss specific conversations and the corporate media is trying to fan that up as a big deal.

CNN has even changed the headline of the story!

James Comey to stop short of saying Trump obstructed justice during testimony: Report

Former FBI Director James Comey will stop short of saying President Trump interfered with the FBI's investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn when he testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

A source familiar with Comey's thinking told ABC News the former FBI director told those close to him he will not accuse Trump of obstructing justice. However, he will push back against the president's assertion that Comey told Trump three times he isn't under investigation.

ISIS Was Allegedly Behind the London Bridge Attacks, Who Is Behind ISIS?

The Islamic State (ISIS) was originally an Al Qaeda affiliated entity created by US intelligence with the support of Britain's MI6, Israel's Mossad, Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia's General Intelligence Presidency (GIP).

The origins of Al Qaeda date back to the Soviet-Afghan war. The Koranic schools in Afghanistan used to train Al Qaeda recruits were financed by the CIA, using textbooks published by the University of Nebraska. That's where the evil ideology of Islamist extremism referred to by PM May originated: The Global War on Terrorism is a lie, Islamic terrorism is a product of US foreign policy which claims to be spreading Western civilization.

Scott Adams: Solar Panels on the Wall?

Axios is reporting that President Trump suggested putting solar panels on the new Wall with Mexico. The article wonders where the idea came from:

Where this idea might come from: A proposal to cover the wall with solar panels was among those submitted when the U.S. requested designs earlier this year, according to the AP. Companies winning contracts and asked to build prototypes may be announced this month.

That’s one place it might have come from. But I consider it an obvious idea, which means the President might have come up with it himself. And when I say “obvious,” I mean it is obvious to people who understand the power of persuasion.

US’ plan to destabilize Iran: “Dark Prince” appointed as head of the CIA

The Trump administration, this week, appeared to take a potential step closer to backing efforts plotted by Saudi Arabia and the UAE to destabilize Iran; possibly topple its Islamic government; and force Qatar to fall into line with Gulf policies that target Iran, political Islam, and militants; with the appointment of a seasoned covert operations officer as head of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Iran operations.

Saudi support of militant groups in Pakistani Baluchistan that operate across the border in the Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchistan is abetted by a US policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This information, coupled with that I have posted earlier this morning, points to a definite escalation of military and economic actions against Iran, as a prelude to a war against it.

I do not know where the USS Ronald Reagan or the USS Carl Vinson have been re-assigned, after leaving the Korean Peninsula, but my best bet would be, ultimately to the Persian Gulf.

And when they are in position is the moment we may well see all hell breaking loose in the Middle East.

80 Graphs From 58 New (2017) Papers Invalidate Claims Of Unprecedented Global-Scale Modern Warming

Last year there were at least 60 peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals demonstrating that Today’s Warming Isn’t Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable.
.
Just within the last 5 months, 58 more papers and 80 new graphs have been published that continue to undermine the popularized conception of a slowly cooling Earth temperature history followed by a dramatic hockey-stick-shaped uptick, or an especially unusual global-scale warming during modern times.
.
Yes, some regions of the Earth have been warming in recent decades or at some point in the last 100 years. Some regions have been cooling for decades at a time. And many regions have shown no significant net changes or trends in either direction relative to the last few hundred to thousands of years.

Judicial Watch Files Taxpayer Lawsuit Against University Of California To End In-State Tuition For Illegal Aliens

The watchdog group Judicial Watch is petitioning the Supreme Court to review the use of funds by independent state agencies. The group is filing a lawsuit on behalf of a resident of California to end in-state tuition grants for illegal aliens from the University of California.

According to the group, roughly 27 million dollars in California taxpayer money is going to fund tuitions for illegal alien or non-resident students.

Judicial Watch president, Tom Fitton says, “the Board of Regents isn’t the state legislature. They can’t authorize illegal benefits like the state tuition.”

NEWS BLACKOUT ON REFUGEE BOYS WHO SEXUALLY ASSAULTED IDAHO GIRL

It’s as if it never happened.

A judge sentenced three Muslim refugee boys in the sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl in Idaho, but nobody knows the length or terms of the sentence because the judge has barred everyone in the courtroom, including the victim’s own parents, from speaking about the case.

The three boys — two from Iraq ages 7 and 10, and one from Sudan aged 14 — pleaded guilty in juvenile court in April to multiple counts of sex crimes in an incident that occurred last June in Twin Falls. The assault occurred at Fawnbrook Apartments, when 5-year-old Jayla, who is developmentally disabled, was lured into a laundry room, stripped of her clothing and sexually assaulted while the oldest boy filmed the entire incident.

FBI committed TREASON under COMEY: Surveillance on Americans illegally leaked to other nations

As the American media machine continues its baseless attacks against President Trump, lobbing unsubstantiated accusations against him on the daily regarding imaginary connections to Russia, there’s a much bigger story brewing that the public isn’t being told about shamed former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey. New evidence has emerged from classified government documents showing that, under Comey’s leadership, the FBI actually committed major acts of treason against the American people by sharing raw intelligence about American citizens with unauthorized third parties, including foreign entities.

Climate Change. Uh-Huh.

"Climate Change" is code for "Excuse to Tax". Any excuse will do.

Back in 1974, the same parties now running around yowling about "Global Warming" were yowling then about "Global Cooling". They were as intellectually devoid of sense and honor then as they are now.

The Earth we live on is a living, breathing organism. It changes. So do you.

Whoopee! Call the Governor! Call the Press Corps!

It is interesting to note that the same climate alarmists responsible for all this hype are the same ones who predicted that the Earth would be totally overcome by the "burden" of overpopulation. We were all supposed to have died off by 1980.

To quote Gomer Pyle, "Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!"

US Aircraft Carriers Ronald Reagan, Carl Vinson Withdraw From Sea of Japan

According to the Japanese broadcaster NHL, the aircraft carriers left the sea on Monday after completing the military exercises last week.

The Carl Vinson will return to the home port in the US city of San Diego, the same reports added. However, the situation around North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile program will be further monitored by USS Nimitz carrier which is supposed to join Japan and India for joint military exercises in the Indian Ocean in July and head to the Persian Gulf subsequently, the outlet suggested.

The Carl Vinson carrier and its strike group including two destroyers and a cruiser was initially to the area close to North Korea in April in response to the repeated ballistic missile tests by the country. Since then, the situation around Pyongyang escalated further with several more missile launches by North Korea including the most recent on May 29. The launches were carried out by Pyongyang in violation of the UN resolutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China's leadership, and particularly President Xi Jinping, may have done more to "encourage" North Korea to cease and desist from its weapons program than we know.

And additionally, this US move away from North Korea, militarily, might definitely be coupled with the following development in South Korea, reported this morning at zerohedge.com:

US Investigators Blame ‘Russian Hackers’ for Qatar Split With Saudis

While President Trump has personally claimed credit for the split between Qatar and the other Gulf Arab states, some US investigators are engaged in particularly wild speculation today, aiming to make the whole situation a plot carried out by Russian hackers.

A little over a week into the latest row, tensions between Qatar and other Gulf states is a hugely complicating factor for US foreign policy in the region, particularly since Qatar hosts the largest US military base in the Middle East. Qatar’s split is something that’s been an ongoing issue for years, based around differing views on the Arab Spring.

Fake news helped though, too, as while that row between Qatar and the Saudis has been a thing for years, this latest escalation centered around a report in the Qatar state media, right after President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia to make hawkish speeches about Iran, quoted the Qatari Emir warning against seeking military confrontation toward Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump cannot have this situation both ways.

Either he was responsible for the blockade, and the Saudi ultimatum against Qatar, or he was not; it's sort of like being pregnant; one either is, or is not, period, end of discussion.

But in the collusion of events within the last 24 hours, one can see the opening salvos of a war against Iran coming, and coming quickly. Fast forward to this morning:

Turkey approves a bill to send troops to Qatar

Assad's military alliance threatens strike against US forces in Syria.

Qatari riyal crashes after Saudi Arabia orders their banks to cut exposure to it

Iran blames Saudi Arabia for terrorist attack,
Vows revenge.

UAE threatens 15 years jail time for publishing statements sympathetic to Qatar

Tehran Stock Exchange down 76% after terror attack

All of these situations, evaluated together, most probably mean a coming war against Iran, which possibly means war with Russia, and sooner rather than later.

The Incirlik base in southern Turkey, used for raids against Isis in Syria, has been at the centre of a dispute between the NATO allies since Ankara blocked a visit by German parliamentarians last month.

"Right now it is possible to visit the NATO base in Konya (in central Turkey), not Incirlik," Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a joint press conference with Gabriel in Ankara.

Fox News Gregg Jarrett Calls on Ginsburg to Recuse Herself Over Trump Comments

Fox News host Gregg Jarrett penned an op-ed Monday asking Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to recuse herself from the expected high Court showdown over President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
The op-ed comes as the Supreme Court of the United States strongly signaled they will take up the government’s petition to review the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project. The Court has asked for expedited briefing in the case, perhaps suggesting, in an unusual move, the hearing will come this summer, when the Court typically does not hear cases.

Uncharacteristically for her or Supreme Court Justices in general, Ginsburg was quite candid with the press over her feelings about the man who would become president, Donald Trump.

In calling for her to recuse herself from considering Trump v. IRAP, Jarrett quotes Ginsburg saying:

PETA's new formula: deception, manipulation, and fake animal abuse

PETA has hit a breathtaking new low.

The animal-rights group has produced a disturbing new video that depicts a cat suffering at the hands of its owner. It’s difficult to watch. It’s also completely fake.

But it looks real; it is a skilled CGI work clearly meant to deceive viewers. Now, PETA is trying to enlist complicit media organizations to knowingly publish the fake video in an effort to make the lie go viral.

Press Kitchen, a PR agency, approached Mashable via email with the story late last week, completely unprompted, and we initially ignored the pitch. The agency pitched the idea in two additional emails.

Now, given the nature of the effort and the scourge of misinformation in 2017 — combined with the fact that the video is truly bizarre and gross — we're making this fake campaign public. We've contacted PETA for comment on the video, but did not receive a response by publication time.

Israel Gearing Up for Attack From Hezbollah

Israel on Sunday conducted a surprise two-day drill to test its military’s readiness for war.

The unannounced exercise, which began on Sunday, comprised a surprise 36-hour drill to determine the army's readiness for battle, according to The Times of Israel.

The drills focused on conscripted infantry ground troops, supported by air force units, according to an unnamed Israeli Defense Force (IDF) official with knowledge of the move who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"It's about a fast switch from routine to a situation that's not routine, where you're preparing for it to be something else," the IDF official said, adding that the drill scenario incorporated a gambit showing "Hezbollah carrying out a terror attack against our troops," the Times of Israel reported.

An unnamed senior Israeli military official recently noted that Israel has implemented an enhanced evacuation plan for Lebanese border regions in the event of renewed fighting, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all of his braggadocio, Nasrallah most likely wouldn't attack Israel inside its borders; that would be the KOD (kiss of death) for Hezbollah, and he has to understand that.

What I think may be getting ready to happen is an Israeli pre-emptive attack against Hezbollah inside Lebanon.

In fact, they may be waiting until the coming war with Iran is well and truly on, to use it as a "shadow of distraction" for coming actions in Lebanon.

The pros and cons of leaf abundance due to increased global carbon dioxide greening the Earth

A new global assessment reveals that increases in leaf abundance are causing boreal areas to warm and arid regions to cool. The results suggest that recent changes in global vegetation have had impacts on local climates that should be considered in the design of local mitigation and adaptation plans. A substantial portion of the planet is greening in response to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide, nitrogen deposition, global warming and land use change. The increase in leafy green coverage, or leaf area index (LAI), will hold important implications for climate change feedback loops, yet quantifying these impacts on a global scale can be challenging. Here, Giovanni Forzieri and colleagues analyzed satellite data of global LAI coverage between 1982 and 2011.

Break crypto to monitor jihadis in real time? Don't be ridiculous, say experts

Jennifer Arcuri, a co-founder of cyber-security Hacker House, who debated with Silva on Today, pointed out that any government backdoor would necessarily weaken the security of an encrypted comms channel. "If you allow one backdoor for government, you've no idea who else is accessing or listening," she said.

The government has the capability to hack phones. It is possible to monitor and surveil people, argued Arcuri, who added that the authorities simply need to obtain a warrant under existing surveillance law – namely, the Investigatory Powers Act.

Silva asserted that terrorists responsible for recent atrocities in Paris 2015 and more recently in April in Stockholm - "insofar as we can tell" - were using encrypted comms.

"Even if you try to hack into someone's device, you can't tell what's going on within those apps," he claimed.

Putin on War With US: 'No One Would Survive'

Putin said in an interview with US film director Oliver Stone that no one would survive if a war began between Russia and the United States.

"I think no one would survive [such a conflict]," Putin said answering a question if the United States would be dominant in a "hot war" with Russia. The part of the interview was partially released by the US Showtime TV channel.

Putin added that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is constantly looking for an enemy to justify its existence.

"There is no longer an Eastern Bloc, no more Soviet Union. Therefore, why does NATO keep existing? My impression is that in order to justify its existence, NATO has a need of an external foe, there is a constant search for the foe, or some acts of provocation to name someone as an adversary."

However, Putin said that the hope for normalization of the Russia-US relations still exists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin was being his usual, blunt self in this interview, and on the issue of a "hot war" between the US and Russia, he is absolutely correct; most of humankind would most likely not survive.

And this is why I still hold fast to the concept of honest, hard-won negotiations between countries as a way to ratchet down geopolitical tensions, before someone, somewhere, does something incredibly stupid, and we are looking at World War III for certain.

Australia to float 'not backdoors' that behave just like backdoors to Five-Eyes meeting

Brandis told Sky News "If those encrypted communications contain information which is necessary to a prosecution, an intelligence task like keeping a terrorism suspect under appropriate surveillance, then there does need to be a level of co-operation from the carriage services providers."

Speaking on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's AM program, MacGibbon also called for "co-operation" and said that while "no-one is talking about back doors here" Australians understand that their privacy at home can be breached when Police gain a warrant to enter their homes.

"From time to time we do expect our privacy to be breached," he said, adding "From time to time you would expect a law enforcement agency to break into a private communication online."

Meteor swarm spawns new and dangerous branch

The regular and often-unspectacular Taurid meteor shower has a dangerous side, with Czech boffins warning it's a likely source of dangerous debris.

Working at the Czech Academy of Sciences, the authors of this paper at Astronomy and Astrophysics (here at arXiv) analysed 144 fireballs observed in the 2015 Taurid shower, and say there's a previously undiscovered branch of the swarm that needs to be watched.

Trump Takes Credit for Saudi Move Against Qatar, a U.S. Military Partner

President Trump thrust himself into a bitter Persian Gulf dispute on Tuesday, taking credit for Saudi Arabia’s move to isolate its smaller neighbor, Qatar, and rattling his national security staff by upending a critical American strategic relationship.

In a series of tweets, Mr. Trump said his call for an end to the financing of radical groups had prompted Saudi Arabia and four other countries to act this week against Qatar, a tiny, energy-rich emirate that is arguably America’s most important military outpost in the Middle East.

“During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology,” he wrote in a midmorning post. “Leaders pointed to Qatar — look!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you are looking at with the coordination of the following events together:

The naval blockade of Qatar:

Saudi Arabia and UAE impose a naval blockade on Qatar

The 24 hour ultimatum from Saudi Arabia that Qatar abide by its decrees, or else, face a military attack:

Saudi Arabia gives Qatar a 24 hour Window to Meet its Ultimatum

The US Siege of Raqqa, Syria:
US Apaches provide Kurdish troops the psychological edge to their siege in Raqqa

And the attack against the Iranian Parliament today:

TERRORISTS RAID IRAN PARLIAMENT, MAUSOLEUM; GUNMEN, SUICIDE BOMBERS LEAVE AT LEAST SEVEN DEAD

When you put all these events in context, you are looking at the opening salvos of a war against Iran.

If Qatar does not respond to Saudi Arabia's demands, after being somewhat defensive toward Iran, it will be regime changed.

Regime change in Damascus is on, to isolate Iran even further.

What really concerns me, in all of this, is how soon the US and Russia will be locked in combat, either over Syria and/or Iran. And right now, the US military does not have the troop strength; the money; the weaponry; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war with Russia (and/or China).

Pop-up Android adware uses social engineering to resist deletion

A malicious Android app that downloads itself from advertisements posted on forums strongly resists removal, security firm Zscaler warns.

The dodgy Android utility poses as "Ks Clean", an Android cleaner app. Once installed, the app displays a fake system update message in which the only option presented to the user is to select the "OK" button, giving victims little immediate option other than to accept a supposed security update.

As soon as the user presses "OK", the malware prompts the installation of another APK named "Update". The Update app asks for administrator privileges which, if granted, can't be revoked.

The app uses the insidious mask of a "security update" to get a user to complete the installation.

After that, there is nothing to stop malware from slinging pop-up ads at victims even when the user is using other apps.
