WORLD BANK PRESIDENT KIM UNEXPECTEDLY RESIGNS

Jim Yong Kim, the president of the World Bank, abruptly announced that he will be leaving his post on February 1, more than three years ahead of the end of his term as the development lender grapples with turbulence in emerging markets and U.S. doubts about the usefulness of multilateral institutions.

“It has been a great honor to serve as President of this remarkable institution, full of passionate individuals dedicated to the mission of ending extreme poverty in our lifetime,” Kim said in a statement on Monday.

“The work of the World Bank Group is more important now than ever as the aspirations of the poor rise all over the world, and problems like climate change, pandemics, famine and refugees continue to grow in both their scale and complexity,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, I have to ask; what in the world forced Kim out as President, and who will be elected or appointed, in his place, and what will THEIR agenda be, once in office?!?

AN 'ACCIDENTAL' DEATH? PROTESTS BREAK OUT OUTSIDE HOME OF DEMOCRATIC DONOR, AFTER BODY FOUND INSIDE

Protests have broken out outside the California home of wealthy Democratic donor and LGBT activist Ed Buck, after the second dead body of a black man was found inside in less than two years.

The dead man – an unidentified man in his 50s – was a “longtime friend” of Buck, Attorney Seymour Amster told Fox News. He apparently turned up at Buck’s door on Sunday night and began acting “in a bizarre way,” before dying in the Los Angeles apartment.

“As far as we're concerned, this is an accidental death,” Amster told Fox.

Neighbors aren’t convinced. Shortly after the discovery on Monday, they began turning up outside Buck’s Los Angeles residence. The protesters blame Buck for the man’s death, and say they have called the police on the wealthy donor before.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My bet is, even if he IS guilty, that this guy will most probably skate; the rich rarely eat their own.

MONSANTO CAN CLAIM PATENT ON GM COTTON IN INDIA, TOP COURT RULES

After a long-standing legal battle, India's top court ruled on Tuesday that Monsanto can own patents on genetically modified cotton seeds, overturning a Delhi High Court ruling that said plant varieties and seeds cannot be patented under the country's laws, according to media reports.

The Supreme Court decision is a rare win for the seed giant—now owned by Germany's Bayer—which is facing more than 9,300 U.S. lawsuits over the safety of its controversial Roundup weedkiller.

Monsanto introduced its GM-cotton seeds to India in 2002, and now more than 90 percent of the country's cotton crop is genetically modified. These crops have been inserted with a pest-resistant toxin called Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt.

Today's decision could "encourage biotechnology firms to step up investment in the country," Reuters reported, adding that firms such as Dupont Pioneer and Syngenta had previously been concerned about losing patents on GM crops in India.

FAKE NEWS OF TRUMP’S VOLTE-FACE ON SYRIA EXIT STRATEGY

Quoting Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton, who was recently on a visit to Israel and told reporters in Jerusalem that American forces would remain in Syria until the last remnants of the Islamic State were defeated and Turkey provided guarantees that it would not strike Kurdish forces allied with the United States, fake news have been circulating on the mainstream media that Trump has made a turnaround by delaying his planned Syria withdrawal.

Quoting the corporate media’s preferred, though highly partisan and dubious source of information on Syria, The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Al-Jazeera’s sister news outlet The New Arab in particular is reporting [1] the Syrian Observatory’s purportedly “extensive network of on-ground activists and reporters” has seen American military convoys of hundreds of trucks and vehicles headed to the US military bases in Raqqa in eastern Syria, and Manbij and Tal Abyad in northern Syria from the Iraq border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bolton has just created two situations on the ground, from which the US military will never be able to extricate itself; the first is, that the Turks will "protect" the Kurdish troops who are there, a condition to which the Turks will never agree, and and second, that ISIS has been completely eliminated in Syria.

And the question for me is, who, actually, is running US foreign policy?!? Is it really President Trump, or is it Netanyahu, and his minions in DC, Bolton and Pompeo?!?

Very hard to tell at that moment.

TYPHOID JOHN SPREADS NEOCON INFECTION AT THE WHITE HOUSE

While the corporate media doubled down on the prospect of Trump’s wall emergency, the neocon infection inside the floundering Trump administration spread. John Bolton appointed one of his buddies from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) to a key post.

Richard Goldberg is an ideal selection for a neocon-ized National Security Council, a forum created in 1947 as then President Truman went about building the national security state. The NSC drives US foreign policy—and with Bolton stomping around the White House unbound, that foreign policy is primarily about Israel and its enemies, although emphasis is shifting ominously toward confrontation with China and Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right after the inauguration, I was somewhat hopeful that Trump would actually "drain the swamp"; unfortunately, as his term of office grinds into its third year of destruction of the US economy, through wildly punitive tariffs on Russia, Iran, and China, and threatening war against any country he doesn't particularly like, I am forced to realize that this hope was hope was an utter and complete delusion.

It is now clear to me, that President Trump is getting ready to start a major war in the Middle East, on Israel's behalf, and as to whether it will be against Iran; Syria, Lebanon, I cannot say at the moment.

The other large unknown will be, that it is very possible that should such a war come about, that Russia and China will join these countries in fighting the US and Israel.

Should this happen, and I think it will be well before Israel's election on 9 April, so that Netanyahu will have something "positive" to share with the Israel people going to the polls. It will most likely be well before the Israel's AG decides to prosecute Netanyahu for corruption. Israel's AG will announce decision on whether to indict Netanyahu next month

Counting from today, that gives Netanyahu and the US government a total of 50 days between now and the end of February, to "do something butch" in the Middle East, in order to push the impending announcement of the indictment off the top of news.

And It also pushes this action against these Middle East countries sooner, if the announcement is to be made in February; we on have 23 days left in January.

But the heavy pre-positioning of military assets in the region, in terms of Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine troops, should be enough to concern any thinking American.

I don't know how the bookies in Vegas are placing odds of the resurrection of the draft in this country might be, but if I were a betting woman, I would bet them to be very high right now, as our troop force strength is relatively low, and our military recruitment from volunteers is dwindling.

FLASHBACK - Convicted TSA Officer Reveals Secrets of Thefts at Airports

A convicted TSA security officer says he was part of a "culture" of indifference that allowed corrupt employees to prey on passengers' luggage and personal belongings with impunity, thanks to lax oversight and tip-offs from TSA colleagues.

"It was very commonplace, very," said Pythias Brown, a former TSA officer at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey who admits he stole more than $800,000 worth of items from luggage and security checkpoints over a four-year period.

"It was very convenient to steal," he said.

The corporate media is bemoaning the fact that TSA agents are refusing to show up for work during the government shutdown so that they can find work that pays the bills. This may actually be a good thing!

FLASHBACK - TSA Agent Arrested for Allegedly Stealing Cash From Passenger’s Bag

Alexander Shae Johnson, a 22-year-old TSA agent at Orlando International Airport (MCO), was arrested Thursday after he was caught on video stealing cash from a passenger’s bag. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Johnson had only been with the TSA for a couple of months, but following the incident, he was arrested and charged with third-degree felony grand theft — and is no longer a TSA employee.

After the passenger, Kathleen Duddleston, went through the screening procedure, she was required to go through additional screening in the form of a pat-down search. While she was getting searched, she noticed Johnson standing close to her bag. Once her additional screening was over, she went to collect her bag and saw that the cash that was inside was missing.

FLASHBACK - Ex-TSA agent: We steal from travelers all the time

A TSA agent convicted of stealing more than $800,000 worth of goods from travelers said this type of theft is “commonplace” among airport security. Almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing from passengers since 2003.
Pythias Brown, a former Transportation Security Administration officer at Newark Liberty International Airport, spent four years stealing everything he could from luggage and security checkpoints, including clothing, laptops, cameras, Nintendo Wiis, video games and cash.

Speaking publicly for the first time after being released after three years in prison, Brown told ABC News that he used the X-ray scanners to locate the most valuable items to snatch.

“I could tell whether it was cameras or laptops or portable cameras or whatever kind of electronic was in the bag,” he said.

As if airport security wasn’t stressful enough, an airline passenger in Florida has had to confront a TSA officer who tried to steal money from her luggage.

A TSA agent working at Orlando International Airport was arrested Thursday for taking cash out of a female passenger’s bag while she went through security, reports WFTV Orlando.

The passenger, Kathleen Duddleston, reportedly had been selected for a pat-down after entering one of the airport’s TSA checkpoints. During her screening, Duddleston says she initially was positioned in a way so that she could not see her bag. The pat-down agent moved Duddleston closer, and that’s when she noticed a separate TSA agent — later identified as 22-year-old Alexander Shae Johnson — lurking near her luggage.

US Navy ‘Confident’ F-35Cs Will Be Combat Ready On Time

The United States Navy is likely to hit a goal set in 2013 to prepare the F-35C Joint Strike Fighter for combat by February 2019, according to a new report.

Snafus with the potential to derail the F-35 program have not happened in recent months, Military.com reported Friday. The Navy's Joint Strike Fighter Fleet Integration Office is "confident," therefore, that it will meet program milestones "as planned," spokeswoman Lt. Lauren Chatmas said in a Friday statement to military.com.

An F-35C Lightning II carrier variant joint strike fighter assigned to the Salty Dogs of Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23 launches off the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69).

US Navy: F-35C ‘at Risk’ of Missing Another Key Schedule Milestone

FBI Won’t Run Honest Investigation of Hillary Clinton Crimes, but Is Tripping Over Itself to Investigate the Theft of Files That Might Expose the Truth About 9/11

An underground hacking collective known as “The Dark Overlord” reportedly announced on New Year’s Eve that it now has in its possession 18,000 documents related to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks – critical information that, because it could potentially blow the lid on 9/11 being an inside job, has prompted the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to launch an urgent investigation.

Even as this same corrupt FBI refuses to pursue justice against felonious traitor Hillary Clinton, federal authorities are now actively pursuing these anonymous, would-be whistleblowers, which claim they’ll sell the documents in exchange for Bitcoin.

Kim has been at the helm of the World Bank since 2012, and was re-elected for a second five-year term that began in 2017.

Indiana Grocery Store Can't Process Food Stamp Payments Due To Govt. Shutdown

We warned last week what could happen if the government shutdown continues into February...

If people are getting this restless already, what will things look like when tens of millions of Americans are suddenly cut off from their primary source of food money?

Well, as Daisy Luther reports from her Organic Prepper blog, it's starting early. As we discussed previously, we weren’t expecting to see a loss of food stamp benefits until the end of January, but a grocery store in Indiana reported they are unable to process EBT payments.

And although it’s for a slightly different reason, The Red Lion store in York County, Pennsylvania has also had issues. New owners recently purchased the grocery store and sent in their application to accept government benefits before the shutdown occurred.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is about to get ugly back on the mainland.

WHY IS NETFLIX ENABLING THE SAUDI CRACKDOWN ON PRESS FREEDOM?

Netflix's decision to take down an episode of Hasan Minhaj's Patriot Act show sets a bad precedent.

Netflix's decision to comply with the request from Saudi Arabia to block the second episode of the original series Patriot Act, a news commentary show by comic Hasan Minhaj, is concerning both because of the precedent it sets and the signal it sends to autocrats around the world.

By enabling censorship in Saudi Arabia just months after Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman allegedly ordered the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the company is restricting an important avenue of information on an issue of great importance in one of the most censored countries in the world. It is also signalling to other repressive states that it will comply with censorship requests and vague cybercrime laws that do not comply with international norms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netfluster (my new name for Netflix) has just proven, incontrovertibly, that they have become a huge part of the 4th branch of the government; We now have the Executive, the Legislative, the Judicial, and the Intelligence arm, which Netfluster has absolutely become.

President Trump Will Make Primetime Address to the Nation on Border Security

Navigating around Democrats to deliver a speech directly to the American people is a brilliant tactic by the President. It’s clear that leaders in the Party, most notably House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and New York Democrat Chuck Schumer, have no interest in hearing the facts. But the American people will surely be interested.

Schumer and Pelosi both ignored and rejected facts about criminality and terrorist ties at the border during a recent briefing by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Nielsen reported that border officials apprehended 17,000 criminals attempting to make unlawful entry into our country last year, including 3,000 people with terrorist ties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That may explain why the networks do not want to carry the speech live.

It’s Starting: A Grocery Store in Indiana Can’t Process Food Stamp Payments Due to Government Shutdown

If you, personally, are relying on SNAP benefits for food, I strongly advise you to stock up now on low-cost items like beans, rice, oatmeal, peanut butter, pasta, flour, and canned fruits and vegetables. If you have money left on your card for the month, spend it now on things that won’t spoil. -- If you are in a position to donate to food banks to help others, the need could soon be at an all-time high. A package of pasta and a can of sauce could at least provide a family with a warm dinner. -- And no matter what your situation is, be prepared for the potential of unrest.

DEM Sen. Joe Manchin steps up, apologizes to ‘ALL Americans’ for Rashida Tlaib’s ‘motherf**ker’ remark to POTUS Trump

Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan created a firestorm of criticism on Friday after a video that went viral surfaced of her referring to POTUS Donald Trump as a “motherf**ker” she and her party will seek to impeach.

Republicans have hammered Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress, for the comment, which was made at a private party for incoming Democrats sponsored by uber-Left-wing group Moveon.org.

But she has remained defiant in the face of the firestorm, claiming she will always “speak truth to power” in refusing to apologize. Her refusal has been supported by Leftists everywhere, including newly-elected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

One Democrat, however, has stepped up and pushed back against Tlaib and her comments in offering an apology to the entire country for what she said — Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

The Eurozone Is In A Danger Zone

Submitted by Alasdair Macleod of The Mises Institute

It is easy to conclude the EU, and the Eurozone in particular, is a financial and systemic time-bomb waiting to happen. Most commentary has focused on problems that are routinely patched over, such as Greece, Italy, or the impending rescue of Deutsche Bank. This is a mistake. The European Central Bank and the EU machine are adept in dealing with issues of this sort, mostly by brazening them out, while buying everything off. As Mario Draghi famously said, "whatever it takes."

There is a precondition for this legerdemain to work. Money must continue to flow into the financial system faster than the demand for it expands, because the maintenance of asset values is the key. And the ECB has done just that, with negative deposit rates and its €2.5 trillion asset purchase program. But that program ends this month, making it the likely turning point, whereby it all starts to go wrong.

As Trade Talks Begin, US Infuriates Beijing With Latest Navy Operation In South China Sea

As a US delegation led by senior trade officials arrived in Beijing on Monday to begin the first round of in-person talks to resolve the burgeoning US-China trade war, the US has reportedly carried out its latest 'Freedom of Navigation' operation in the South China Sea - though at least this time there wasn't a near-collision with a Chinese ship.
