The Deep State: How They Got Their Power To Manipulate For Ultimate Control

While many in the United States firmly believe that the government just isn’t working, it is. But it’s only working for the powerful and rich elites in the government and the media who have a desire to cling to their oppressive control of others and the money many are willing to allow them to steal.

Fed Vice Chair Stan Fischer unexpectedly resigns “for personal reasons”

In a shocking announcement, the latest rat to abandon the sinking ship – because it is far less fun to navigate the world’s biggest economy when you are raising rates than when injecting trillions – Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer has announces his decision to step down effective October 13 (Friday), citing “personal reasons” in letter of resignation to President Donald Trump. His term as vice chair was set to expire on June 12, 2018.

Fischer’s resignation increases vacancies on the Fed Board from three to four, with Yellen and Brainard and Powell remaining the only members on the Board. This could accelerate Senate confirmation of Randal Quarles to be Vice Chair for Supervision, which will be considered tomorrow in the Senate Banking Committee and looks likely to approved by the full Senate prior to Fischer’s planned departure, according to Goldman.

Taking the decision of whether or not they needed help away from the victims of the hurricane, the police stopped the buggy driven by Kirkendoll and Green and demanded that the men cease helping. The cop can be heard telling them to leave.

BIG PHARMA BIAS: FDA GRANTS ‘BREAKTHROUGH’ STATUS TO ECSTASY FOR PTSD WHILE PROHIBITING CANNABIS

If there’s one refrain we hear from politicians more than anything else, it’s “I support the troops.” However, their definition of “support” changes with the political wind, and more often than not is a farce.

One example is the ongoing denial of medical cannabis to war veterans suffering from a range of conditions, from chronic pain to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Despite plenty of evidence—both scientific and real-world—that cannabis effectively treats these conditions, those who purportedly fought for freedom come home only to lose freedom under the War on Drugs.

The Veterans Administration (VA) still prohibits doctors from recommending cannabis or its extracts—including cannabidiol (CBD) which does not produce a high—even though most U.S. states acknowledge the science and have legalized medical cannabis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Typical; and of course, those growing their own cannabis for medicinal use, cannot possibly complete in the area of the "deep pockets" of Big Pharma, when it comes to keeping the people who legislate in their favor, in power.

Hurricane Irma: If There Was Such A Thing As A Category 6 Hurricane, This Would Be It

Hurricane Irma has become even stronger than the most extreme forecasts were projecting. According to the National Hurricane Center, Irma had sustained winds of 185 miles per hour at one point on Tuesday. That makes it the strongest Atlantic hurricane in history “outside the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean”. I was criticized for suggesting that Irma could become so powerful that it could potentially be labeled a “category 6” storm if such a thing existed. Well, now it has actually happened. If you extrapolate the Saffir-Simpson scale, “category 6” would begin at 158 knots, which would be 181.8 miles per hour. Since Irma has surpassed that mark, I believe that it is entirely reasonable if people want to refer to it as a “category 6” storm.

CA Bill Designed to Drive Gun Stores Out of Business Headed to Governor

Data from the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) show that while 70,000 firearms have been lost or stolen in California since 2011, only a fraction of them were stolen from gun stores (797, representing about 1%). In fact, recent reports have shown that a firearm in the hands of law enforcement officers and agencies is more likely to come up missing than a firearm in the possession of licensed firearms retailers.

But before the police patrol reached the station, four as-yet unidentified men intervened and tried to free the fare-dodger, according to a police report.

RUSSIAN MILITARY ADMITS SYRIA IS A TESTING GROUND FOR RUSSIAN WEAPONS

Confirming what many corporate media outlets have been saying for years, the Russian military recently admitted that Syria is a testing ground for Russia’s military capabilities, Russian-owned outlet TASS reports.

“More than 200 weapons have been tested during the special operation [in Syria], which demonstrated high combat effectiveness and proved to be mission-capable,” Chairman of the Military Science Committee of the Russian Armed Forces and Deputy Head of the General Staff Lieutenant General, Igor Makushev, said at the Army-2017 international military technical forum during a round table discussion on the Syrian experience last Friday.

“Special attention is paid to new arms models, including those that are undergoing state tests, in order to timely detect and quickly remove possible manufacturing and design defects,” Makushev also added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do I happen to detect just a tiny soupcon of Russia-bashing here?!?

The Russians have tested their weapons in real-time environments, and found them working, and well. And look at the statement by General Staff Lieutenant General, Igor Makushev: “Special attention is paid to new arms models, including those that are undergoing state tests, in order to timely detect and quickly remove possible manufacturing and design defects,” Makushev also added.

Do US weapons get this kind of going over when they are field-tested, in real combat environments?!?

IF, in fact, that is true, why is the F-35 still such an horrific epic fail?!?

And I would like to politely point out the following: Russia has not been alone in selling weapons to dictatorships:

Rex Tillerson lifts human rights conditions on the sales of arms to Bahrain

Trump ready to approve weapons packages to Saudi Arabia

The human rights records of the above-mentioned countries almost makes Attila the Hun look downright compassionate in comparison!!

WELLS FARGO CAUGHT WITH ANOTHER 1.4 MILLION FAKE ACCOUNTS, WILL ANYONE EVER GET JAILED?

As the tally of fake Wells Fargo accounts balloons to 3.5 million, Congress has yet to discipline the executives, while the financial giant has only paid fines. A coalition of 33 groups is now demanding new hearings and for the bank to be held accountable.

Wells Fargo and Company increased its estimate of how many accounts were created by 67 percent Thursday. The mega bank issued shocking new disclosures, showing 1.4 million more bogus customer accounts had been created, a significant increase from previous estimates, the New York Times reported.

In addition, Wells Fargo admitted to yet another impropriety, stating that they enrolled more than a half-million customer accounts into their online bill pay service without notifying them. The embattled bank has since agreed to pay out $910,000 to customers who accrued fees or charges related to the unknown accounts.

TOP EU COURT THREATENS POLAND, HUNGARY, CZECH REPUBLIC WITH FINES IF THEY REFUSE REFUGEES

Concluding a months-long saga in which central and eastern European nations revolted against Brussels' refugee policies, on Wednesday the European Union’s highest court ruled that EU states must take in a share of refugees who reach Europe, dismissing complaints by Slovakia and Hungary and reigniting an angry row between east and west. The Court upheld the EU’s right to order national governments to take in their "fair share" of asylum seekers, arguing that "the mechanism actually contributes to enabling Greece and Italy to deal with the impact of the 2015 migration crisis and is proportionate."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Did you hear that dull, agonising thud from across the pond?!?

THAT... was the EU, dismembering itself over the issue of refugee immigration.

Ron Paul Defends Price Gouging ('Free Market Pricing') In Wake Of Hurricane Harvey

Before you cringe, Dr. Paul explains 'price gouging,' which he explains is really 'free-market pricing,' as only he can. "Price gouging is just a nasty word for the market adjusting the price for tbe demand for that good," Dr. Paul begins. He goes on to give many real life examples of how 'price gouging' would incintivize suppliers to provide disaster victims with what they need in time of crisis, when government can not. I am not sure that any other person on earth besides the erudite Dr. Paul could make such a shockingly persuasive argument for what is an initially offensive-sounding premise.

The investigation, like many before it, shows that nursing homes and public officials are often apathetic when residents suffer sexual assaults and other serious crimes.

Preparedness supplies WIPED OUT across Florida as Hurricane Irma achieves 180 mph “beast” strength

As reported by ClickOrlando.com, Floridians are in a state of total panic because almost none of them thought to prepare before now:

“(It was) a little bit of a pandemonium,” shopper Diane Williams said. “Getting here was worse than being inside. It’s just that everybody is panicked, so they are preparing, which is wise, but it’s just, like, crazy.”

Store shelves are already being stripped bare at Walmart and other retailers, according to media reports. Generators are completely sold out at Home Depot and other stores, too.

Astonishingly, ClickOrlando.com even mentions the importance of having some cash, saying, “Cash will also be essential in the case of a power outage since ATMs would not be able to operate and businesses would not be able to process credit cards.”

REPORT: NSA OFFERED TO GIVE FBI ALL OF HILLARY CLINTON’S MISSING EMAILS. COMEY SAID NO.

The New York Post’s John Crudele had an interesting column outlining how the bogus Democrat/Media/Deep State instigated Trump investigation is backfiring on Democrats as the American people grow increasingly weary of repeated allegations without actual proof.
Beyond that fatigue is something even more concerning for Democrats. The investigation is actually shedding light on wrongdoing by figures like Hillary Clinton and James Comey – NOT Donald Trump.

Check it out:

————

There’s a lot going on in the Hillary Clinton/Donald Trump/Russia investigation that all the highfalutin’ newspapers that cover politics are still trying to ignore.

Well, investors had better know this stuff before it bites them in the assets. So here goes.

Numerous reports coming out of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week said that former FBI Director James Comey made the decision not to refer Clinton for prosecution long before he even interviewed key witnesses, including Hillary.

The Plight of Rohingya: Myanmar Authorities Are Deliberately Overlooking Atrocities

As maintained by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran is prepared to help adoption of collective strategies by international organizations and Muslim countries in order to solve the ongoing crisis plaguing Myanmar’s Muslim community. This comes as Myanmar’s military has intensified attacks on Rohingya Muslims.

This is while the Muslim community has long been under a military siege in Rakhine since October 2016. The government claimed that its border guards had come under a militant attack and used it as the pretext to enforce the lockdown without substantiating its claim. The Rohingya had already been subject to communal violence by extremist Buddhists for years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will not be silent, about this ongoing genocide, thank you very much!!

And Ahn Sang Su Ki, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU RIGHT NOW?!?

Cowering and hiding behind the weight of your office, will not resolve the problem.

The world is watching, and seeing the enormity of this calamity, courtesy of of a highly nationalistic Buddhist military, cannot be allowed to continue.

And Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, my hat is off to you, sir, and all other Muslim countries looking for ways to help end this religious persecution of Myanmar's Rohingya.

If Buddha is watching this from whatever enlightened spiritual space to which he may have ascended, his spirit is sobbing right now.

Patriot Does Not Equal Racist

So maybe, just maybe, instead of labeling Patriot groups as being racist and supporters of Neo-Nazi/White Supremacist ideology, people need to start sitting down with these groups and have dialogue with them. Get to know who they are and what they stand for. I can't speak for all Patriot groups, but I can tell you from personal experience that the ones mentioned in this blog are not racists and they are the main Patriot groups that are erroneously being painted as racist hate groups. Although a picture is worth a thousand words, make sure the picture you are looking at isn't one taken from a skewed, biased point of view. That way the thousand words you choose to use are ones that are actually appropriate. When you choose to use the words “Patriot” and “Racist” in the same sentence to infer they are one in the same, not only are you doing yourself a disservice, but you are doing our Country a disservice as well.

Making Disasters Worse — Ron Paul on government aid.

Following natural disasters, individuals who attempt to return to their own property — much less try to repair the damage — without government permission can be arrested and thrown in jail. Federal, state, and local officials often hinder or even stop voluntary rescue and relief efforts. The outpouring of private giving and volunteer relief efforts we have witnessed over the past week shows that the American people can effectively respond to natural disasters if the government would get out of their way.

#ISpeakforButhaina: Picture of girl in Yemen goes viral

Buthaina Mansour was the sole survivor of a bombing in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, that killed her entire family. An image of her trying to open her eyes despite her injuries has gone viral on social media as a symbol of solidarity with the people in the war-torn country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations to his Royal Highness, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, for whom the world can now add yet another honorific to his name: that of the Butcher of Yemen.

An image of one more innocent toddler, maimed for life, and bereft of any family whatsoever; one has to wonder as to the horrific extent of this man's bloodlust, in light of the fact that his Saudi military are killing innocent babies and toddlers; women; and the medically fragile elderly in Yemen, in addition to the Houthi Rebels.

Because the Yemeni ports are closed, so no food can get it, Yemeni children are starving, and dying from complications of malnutrition; and now, is experiencing one of the worst epidemics of cholera the world has seen.

You have allowed your troops in Yemen to use both depleted uranium weapons, causing massive spikes in birth defects, stillbirths, and cancers here, as well as white phosphorous, which burns to the bone, and for which there is utterly no remedy.

And President Trump, you, sir, have enabled this genocide as the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America has authorized billions of dollars in arms sales to this country;

US approves a $1.4 billion sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia

And by doing so, you have distinguished yourself as the Merchant-of-Death-In-Chief of your country: congratulations to you also, Mr. President!!

What we have in Yemen, with US government enabling, is the massive, full-blown, in-your-face commission of Saudi war crimes, with utter impunity, and zero morality, Mr. President: there is no other way to say this.

And every single respected expert on the Middle East consistently say that the resolution of the hostilities in Yemen must, ultimately, political, rather than military.

History will not judge either of you you kindly on this, Prince Salmon, and President Trump.

Prince Salman, you will be remembered as Saudi Arabia's War Crimes Prince"

And President Trump, you will not be remembered as a "War President", but as a "War Crimes President" for these atrocities, visited upon the people of Yemen.

Please understand: I am a Christian pacifist activist, who constantly exhorts her government to resolve its geopolitical differences through hard-won, moral negotiations rather than through war, and cannot, ethically, ever endorse violence.

But when my government refuses to listen to logic, I have a responsibility to witness, peacefully, to the horrors it is inflicting around the world, and shall do so until I draw my last breath.

Trump Quietly Promises Billions in New Nuke Contracts

The Trump administration has just announced that it is moving ahead with an Obama-era plan to modernize America’s nuclear arsenal, sprucing up the nuclear Triad with a new fleet of land-based missiles, missile-carrying submarines, and air-delivered nuclear weapons that will cost the American taxpayer well over $1 trillion in the coming years. The ostensible purpose behind this modernization effort is to maintain America’s nuclear deterrence capability for decades to come. The harsh reality, however, is that through this nuclear upgrade, America is simply repeating the mistakes of the past, building weapons whose precision and speed will trigger a new arms race with Russia and China as they seek to match this new American capability with weapons designed to sustain their version of nuclear deterrence.

China Is Main Target of ‘Pressure’ Against North Korea

As tensions with North Korea have risen, the US has been eager to impose new sanctions on them. Since the US doesn’t trade with North Korea in the first place, that has mostly boiled down to sanctions against Chinese companies that do.

The ease with which the Trump Administration has made sanctioning North Korea mean sanctioning China is coupled with a lot of angry blaming of China from US officials, who still expect them to solve North Korea unilaterally. China is unsurprisingly viewing itself as a target.

President Trump campaigned on trade with China being unfair, and many see that driving their actions against China as part of North Korea policy. Trump has presented North Korea’s continued tests as an “embarrassment” to China, and suggests the US could cut all trade with every nation that trades with North Korea, which covers a lot of nations, but especially China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such an act would be largely symbolic, as the only practical deterrent would be for President Trump to order the US Navy to board and physically inspect any and all cargo bound for North Korea; and this would be a logistical nightmare, not to mention the possibility of getting into a shooting war with either China or any other nation with the capabilities of defending itself with sophisticated weaponry.

HOW ‘REGIME CHANGE’ WARS LED TO KOREA CRISIS

The U.S.-led aggressions against Iraq and Libya are two war crimes that keep on costing, with their grim examples of what happens to leaders who get rid of WMDs driving the scary showdown with North Korea, writes Robert Parry.

It is a popular meme in the U.S. media to say that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is “crazy” as he undertakes to develop a nuclear bomb and a missile capacity to deliver it, but he is actually working from a cold logic dictated by the U.S. government’s aggressive wars and lack of integrity.

Indeed, the current North Korea crisis, which could end up killing millions of people, can be viewed as a follow-on disaster to President George W. Bush’s Iraq War and President Barack Obama’s Libyan intervention. Those wars came after the leaders of Iraq and Libya had dismantled their dangerous weapons programs, leaving their countries virtually powerless when the U.S. government chose to invade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should the US go to war against North Korea, and begin hostilities, China will most likely come into the war on North Korea's side; as to this very real possibility, I would strongly caution President Trump to choose his battles wisely.
I would also suggest that war against China would be a foolish one, because at this point in the US military's existence, it does not have the weaponry; the money; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against China.

I certainly hope and pray that the current "President Whisperers", comprised of McMasters, Kelly, and Mattis, have been straight and upfront with President Trump, on this; but unfortunately, I sense that these advisors may see war as the only way out, because such actions have worked well economically in the past, when the country was in a financial bind.

But the game has fundamentally changed, in light of the fact that we are dealing with a nuclear-armed China, Russia, and - most recently - North Korea.

Blackballed: Merkel Vows to Prevent Turkey from Joining EU

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has vowed that she will block Turkey's membership talks with the European Union, signaling an apparent pivot from her previous position.

During a Sunday televised debate with her Social Democrat (SPD) rival Martin Schulz, the center-right leader shocked the audience with an unexpected pledge to discuss an end to Turkey's EU membership talks with fellow European leaders, if she returned for a fourth term in the upcoming German federal elections.

"The fact is clear that Turkey should not become a member of the EU," Merkel said, adding that she never believed it would happen.

"I'll speak to my [EU] colleagues to see if we can reach a joint position on this so that we can end these accession talks."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meanwhile, we have the Turkish Foreign Minister deliver the following remarks on Turkey's accession to the EU getting blocked:

Turkey Says Talk of Ending Its EU Accession Undermines Europe

But considering Erdogan's power-mad, dictatorial and suppressive politics at home, manifested by closing down newspapers, and arresting alleged dissidents, I think Merkel's decision to oppose Turkey's accession into the EU is a wise one, for now.

When Erdogan leaves office, and someone who is more Democracy-oriented becomes President, however, a reconsideration may be possible by the EU.

South Korea’s defense minister suggests bringing back tactical U.S. nuclear weapons

South Korea’s defense minister on Monday said it was worth reviewing the redeployment of American tactical nuclear weapons to the Korean Peninsula to guard against the North, a step that analysts warn would sharply increase the risk of an accidental conflict.

As concern over Korea deepened following North Korea’s huge nuclear test Sunday, Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was “begging for war.”

Here in Seoul, the Defense Ministry warned that Pyongyang might be preparing to launch another missile into the Pacific Ocean, perhaps an intercontinental ballistic missile theoretically capable of reaching the mainland United States.

President Trump and his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, spoke on the phone for 40 minutes Monday night, Korean time — some 34 hours after the nuclear test and more than 24 hours after Trump took to Twitter to criticize Moon’s “talk of appeasement.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such a move will only escalate tensions in the region, and make it more possible that one stupid mistake, or one mis-communication, could set off the second Korean war.

And President Trump, a word, please: you do NOT criticise the behaviour of a foreign head of state in public, then naively, and stupidly, believe that they will conduct their country's foreign policy according to your dictates, sir.

If you have something negative to say about the policy of foreign leaders, please have the horse-sense to say it privately.

But your very public excoriation of President Moon on Twitter, is absolutely NOT "The Art of the Deal" behaviour; it is the behaviour one might logically ascribe to a megalomaniac, publicly yelling at a head of state, because he has not gotten his way.

China lodges representations to DPRK embassy over nuclear test

China confirmed on Monday its Foreign Ministry has lodged solemn representations to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) embassy in Beijing over its sixth nuclear test.

"The representations were lodged to the person in charge of the embassy," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a regular news briefing.
The DPRK Sunday detonated a hydrogen bomb that can be carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), DPRK's Central Television announced. This was the sixth nuclear test the DPRK has undertaken.

"China's adherence to denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and opposition to nuclear tests and missile development by the DPRK is well-known," Geng said.
China has proposed realizing denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula while establishing a peace mechanism. China has also expected the DPRK to suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the suspension of large-scale U.S.-ROK military exercises.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What China is proposing is an absolutely, completely reasonable mechanism for ratcheting down the tensions here.

Unfortunately, neither those in the bowels of power in DC, or Kim Jung Un appear to be listening; and this is leading the region to the very cusp of a regional war, which may result in a world war.

Trump agrees to lift limits on South Korean missile payloads

The U.S. and South Korea have agreed to lift limits on South Korea's missile payload capabilities following North Korea's hydrogen bomb test over the weekend, the White House announced Monday.

During a call between President Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-In, Trump "gave his in-principle approval to South Korea’s initiative to lift restrictions on their missile payload capabilities,” the White House said in a readout of the call.

“President Trump also provided his conceptual approval for the purchase of many billions of dollars’ worth of military weapons and equipment from the United States by South Korea," the statement added.

A spokesman for South Korea’s presidential office confirmed the call Monday, describing the move to lift the limit on the payload of South Korean missiles under U.S.-South Korean guidelines as an "effective" countermeasure, the Yonhap News Agency reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another move, demonstrating just how close the Unhinged, Surveilled, States of Amerika is moving toward war on the Korean Peninsula.

CHINA MOVES ON NEW WORLD ORDER: WILL BUY OIL WITH GOLD-BACKED CURRENCY—BYPASSING US PETRODOLLAR

In an effort to hedge against U.S. hegemony, and what could be a global game-changer, the world’s top oil importer, China, is preparing to denominate crude oil futures contracts in Chinese yuan to be convertible into gold. The move would allow oil exporting countries to bypass benchmarks denominated in U.S. petrodollars — creating what will almost certainly be the most critical Asian oil benchmark, according to a report by Nikkei Asian Review.

Typically, crude oil is priced in relation to Brent or West Texas Intermediate futures, both denominated in U.S. dollars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When fully functional in 2018, this move by China will wind up as a sucker punch to the gut to the US economy.

So watch for more demonisation of China in the coming months, including more trade sanctions, as a prelude to a potential outright US-driven war against it.

RETIRED FBI AGENT SUES DOJ FOR RECORDS ON CONTRIBUTIONS MADE BY A CLINTON ALLY TO MCCABE'S WIFE

Over the weekend, Judicial Watch announced that it had filed a lawsuit against the DOJ on behalf of retired special agent Jeffrey Danik seeking records related to roughly $700,000 in political contributions made by groups tied to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a long-time Clinton confidant, to the wife of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe...the same Andrew McCabe who was conveniently overseeing multiple Hillary Clinton investigations at the time and even oversaw components of her email investigation.

HOW CORPORATE LOBBYISTS DOMINATE MEETINGS WITH UK AND EU BREXIT NEGOTIATORS

The far-reaching Brexit agreement that will govern the UK’s exit from the European Union is not only being shaped at the negotiating table, but also by the lobbyists who are trying to influence each side’s position papers and red lines.

New analysis of official statistics on lobby meetings with ministers from the UK’s Department for Exiting the EU (DExEU) and members of the EU’s Brexit Task Force reveals a common willingness to privilege the representatives of corporate interests above all others:

Between October 2016 and March 2017, DExEU staff had six meetings with big business representatives for every one meeting with an NGO, a trade union or a think tank. This figure may even just be the tip of the iceberg, as Brexit lobby meetings are also likely to take place with DExEU officials not required to disclose meetings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such negotiations are never about how the Brexit may positively influence the lives of every-day, working Brits; they are always about how corporations are going to game the system, to better their own financial states.

S.A. gas stations slowly recovering from rush for fuel

Four days after a post-hurricane panic sent drivers to drain gasoline stations over the Labor Day weekend, the end of waiting in lines behind hoarders may be in sight.

According to gas price tracker GasBuddy.com, the number of empty stations in San Antonio decreased Monday.

Only 376 gas stations were reported without fuel as of 4 p.m. Monday, according to GasBuddy’s gasoline availability tracker, which is updated by consumers. That would mean nearly 60 percent of San Antonio’s roughly 630 gas stations remain without fuel, down from a peak of 575 gas stations, or 91 percent, that were reportedly without fuel Saturday night.

PEPE ESCOBAR: WHY JIHADISM WON'T BE ALLOWED TO DIE: A serious working hypothesis is being discussed for a while now among independent geopolitical analysts. Here it is, in a nutshell.

Daesh may be dying – but the world is still encumbered with its walking corpse.

Plan B of Daesh’s masters may have been to indoctrinate repeated waves of misguided youth across the EU and “seduce” them into D.I. Y. jihadi terror, creating fear and insecurity in Europe. I’ve just been to Barcelona — and that’s not happening. No Fear.

Daesh can also manipulate its brand name to stake a claim into what we may call the New War Belt in Southwest Asia. That’s also not happening, because the “4+1” – Russia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, plus Hezbollah – with the addition of Turkey, and with China in a “leading from behind” role, are all working together.

The unfinished war across “Syraq” coupled with spasms of jihadism in Europe could certainly still metastasize into a massive Eurasian cancer, spreading like a plague from Afghanistan to Germany and vice-versa, and from the South China Sea to Brussels via Pakistan and vice-versa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I understand that this is how the American deep state thinks and behaves; but is it truly capable of providing the level of strategy, arms, and personnel to make such actions actually successful against their alleged existential foes, Russia and China, before they collectively, haul off and attack the US?!?

Looking at the Ethnic Uighurs in China (heavily funded by Saudi Arabia, (a US proxy in the Middle East), their violence has only brought the heavy hand of of the Chinese state down harder against them, to the point where any training in foreign countries has been prevented by them being required to turn in their passports.

China orders Xinjiang residents to hand in passports: Citizens of restive region of 11 m Muslim Uighurs must apply to get papers back

This Uighur violence falls far short of either a geopolitical, or military, success.

And let's look at the jihadists in Syria; even though the US military has "dug in" its position in Syria, ostensibly to create a home for Kurdish nationalists, there is a question of just how long the Russians will put up with the nonsense of American troops being in Syria,uninvited, and attempting to balkanize it, and this could potentially be a flashpoint for a war between Russia and the United States.

If one looks at the big picture, the movements and actions of these Western-backed jihadists are, at best, "holding actions" and will not, ultimately be permitted, by Russia and China, to prevent China's New Silk Roads, or Russia's
Eurasia Economic Union.

Irma is now one of the strongest hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic

Irma is now an “extremely dangerous” Category 5 hurricane with wind speeds up to 175 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center. That makes it the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean outside of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.

It’s still unclear where exactly the hurricane will make landfall in the US and which parts of the East Coast it will affect, but there’s an “increasing chance” that Florida will be impacted later this week and in the weekend, the National Hurricane Center said. The hurricane is expected to affect the Leeward Islands later today and the British and US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico tomorrow.

CALIFORNIA'S TOP COURT SAYS COPS HAVE TO HAND OVER AUTOMATIC PLATE READER RECORDS

The EFF and ACLU have achieved a victory in an acronym-heavy public records case. The California Supreme Court has ruled the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and Los Angeles Sheriff's Department (LASD) will have to turn over data acquired by their automatic license plate readers (ALPRs).

Both entities tried to keep these records from the EFF and ACLU by claiming every single one of the millions of plate records were "investigatory records," exempt from disclosure under California's public records law. This apparently included the millions of "non-hit" records never utilized in any LAPD/LASD investigation. With the plate readers collecting 1.5-2 million records per week, they were basically arguing every driver passing by an ALPR was under investigation.

That's not how the state's Supreme Court sees it [PDF]. The "investigatory records" exemption pertains to targeted, ongoing investigations. The public records law cannot be stretched to cover indiscriminate mass surveillance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a momentary victory for California drivers.

That being said, this case could potentially be argued at a Federal court level, which, given the Federal government's rapacious appetite for mass spectrum surveillance, may have a completely different outcome.

The storm is heading west, and could roll across the Leeward Islands, Antigua and islands nearby later today. The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico could take a hit Wednesday. After that, the forecast becomes less firm, but the storm has South Florida in its sights. Forecasters say that by early next week Florida, Georgia and/or the Carolinas could see Irma's wrath, depending on where Irma tracks. The storm could even sweep into the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

LE CERCLE – MEET THE SECRET CIA-FUNDED GROUP BEHIND THE ‘WAR ON TERROR’

Bilderberg has gained a reputation as the world’s most secretive group of billionaires and political leaders who conspire to impact global events—but reports indicate that they don’t hold a candle to another group that includes a host of war criminals responsible for the “War on Terror.”

Former U.S. Defense Secretary and President of the World Bank Paul Wolfowitz, former Iraqi Coalition Provisional Authority Leader Paul Bremer, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and former Chairman of the Defense Department’s Defense Policy Board Richard Perle—some of the most notable neoconservative architects of the Iraq War—are all reportedly members.

Other reported American members of Le Cercle include former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Directors of Central Intelligence Bill Casey and William Colby, and former President Richard Nixon after he left the White House.
