BIG CITIES THAT ARE STRUGGLING WITH HEPATITIS, TYPHUS, MOUNTAINS OF HUMAN FECES AND MILLIONS OF RATS ARE ALL RUN BY DEMOCRATS

SOURCE: MICHAEL SNYDER
Major cities all over America are being transformed into rotting, decaying, disease-infested hellholes, and it doesn’t exactly take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Our actions are the product of our belief systems, and the major U.S. cities where the conditions are the worst are always dominated by a particular political ideology. If the citizens of those major cities like the results that they are currently getting, then they should just continue to do what they have been doing. But if they want real change, then those citizens are going to have to be willing to make fundamentally different choices than they have been making in the past.

Today, large cities all over the country are dealing with mountains of feces, millions of rats and horrific diseases that we once had completely under control. Let’s start our tour in Philadelphia, where cases of Hepatitis A are starting to spread like wildfire…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Asa native San Franciscan, I have watched the devolution of a once-beautiful, once proud, and diverse city, collapse to the point of no return.

Nationhood is cyclical in its nature, so I would imagine that the life of a city is, as well; it is, however, painful for someone who loves their country, to have to witness this.

ARE GENE EDITED COWS OR HUMANS WHAT WE REALLY NEED?

SOURCE: F. WILLIAM ENGDAHL
Scientists using the “second generation” of genetic manipulation technology have used gene-editing to alter the DNA of breed of cattle so that they supposedly do not grow horns. At around the same time another group of scientists claim to have injected human cells into monkeys to create chimeras, as in the ancient Greek myths of beings part lion, part snake. Earlier this year a group of Chinese researchers claimed to have deliberately gene-edited monkey clones with a mental disturbance. What few realize is that all this is taking place almost entirely without any serious health and safety regulation. Is this what mankind really needs at this juncture?

Gene-edited hornless cows

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; " Big Agriculture" is one of the most generous campaign contributors around, and have done a good job of convincing the Congress critters they control, that people don't really need to know if the food they are eating is GMO, or not; but the cautionary info from this research, suggests that these recombinent genes are going to have some very negative effects, particularly down the road.

We need to demand both strict protocols for this research, and to not allow it to get into the American food chain, unvetted.

SETH RICH MURDER UPDATE: FBI CLAIMS THEY DIDN’T INVESTIGATE BUT NSA CLAIMS CAN’T DISCLOSE FILES DUE TO MATTER OF NATIONAL SECURITY

We first reported in late July that Texas businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit where he outed reporter Ellen Ratner as his source for information on Seth Rich. The DNC operative was murdered in the summer of 2016 in Washington DC. His murder was never solved. According to the lawsuit Seth Rich provided WikiLeaks the DNC emails before the 2016 election, not Russia.

This totally destroys the FBI and Mueller’s claims that Russians hacked the DNC to obtain these emails.

Butowsky claims in his lawsuit:

Ms. Rattner said Mr. Assange told her that Seth Rich and his brother, Aaron, were responsible for releasing the DNC emails to Wikileaks. Ms. Rattner said Mr. Assange wanted the information relayed to Seth’s parents, as it might explain the motive for Seth’s murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be a turning point for the investigation, and a real turning point for this nation; because now, there may be a creeping awareness in government, that there is only a finite degree to which the US deep state can cover up its actions, in detriment both to the American political process, and the public's right to know.

IN "EXPLOSIVE" LAWSUIT WALMART SUES TESLA OVER SOLAR PANEL FIRES, CLAIMS SOLARCITY PURCHASE WAS A BAILOUT

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Until now, the general public was only aware of the remarkable ability of Tesla cars to spontaneously combust, that is at least when they are not smashing into random things while on autopilot. It now appears that Tesla's solar panels (some may be unaware that several years ago, Elon Musk tried to unsuccessfully pivot Tesla into a solar power company as well as that's where a few billion in government subsidies were to be found) are just as combustible.

On Tuesday, Walmart sued Tesla, after its solar panels atop seven of the retailer’s stores allegedly caught fire, alleging breach of contract, gross negligence and failure to live up to industry standards. Walmart is asking Tesla to remove solar panels from more than 240 Walmart locations where they have been installed, and to pay damages related to all the fires Walmart says that Tesla caused.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I honor this man's genius, but he absolutely needs a "business nanny", who can help avoid incidents like this, by insisting on a strict, unimpeachable quality control protocol, for ANY of the products which bear his name.

TALIBAN PEACE TALKS MUST NOT IGNORE CIA-FUNDED AFGHAN MILITIAS, REPORT SAYS

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT

After 18 years of war, and months of direct talks, the United States appears to be on the brink of reaching an unprecedented peace agreement with the Taliban that would bring about U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

A draft agreement was reached in March, and negotiators in Qatar have reportedly been ironing out the details ahead of a September 1 deadline — including exactly when U.S. troops will withdraw and when a permanent ceasefire between the parties will take effect. The U.S. is reportedly also seeking assurances from the Taliban that it won’t harbor foreign terror groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda and will engage in dialogue with the Afghan government after the U.S. military leaves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As much as President Trump desperately needs a win here, ahead of the 2020 elections, I am not holding my breath,, that an accord will actually be reached, before the 1 September deadline.

And the reason I say this, is that there are too many unexploited resources desired by the world's leaders, that they will really ever be willing to let Afghanistan go.

As stated by a Google Article regarding mining in Afghanistan:

"Afghanistan has over 1,400 mineral fields,[1][2][3] containing barite, chromite, coal, copper, gold, iron ore, lead, natural gas, petroleum, precious and semi-precious stones, salt, sulfur, talc, and zinc, among many other minerals.[1][4] Gemstones include high-quality emerald, lapis lazuli, red garnet and ruby. According to a joint study by The Pentagon and the United States Geological Survey, Afghanistan has an estimated US$3 trillion[5] of untapped minerals."

You have to look at this with the sang froid eye of a violently, unhinged, despotic government, which wants to regime change a country, to make it more western centric, and expropriate resources to which the US government has no right, then selling them only for US dollars.

This is the MO the US has taken, ever since the invasion of Iraq, and the consistent pattern is so in your face, that I become thoroughly amazed when Americans don't get it.

Don't get me wrong; I would love for peace to happen for Afghanistan; however, given the embarrassment of riches this country has, I wouldn't expect this peace to last very long.

But a country attempting to stabilize Afghanistan right after the US leaves, will be China.

And the interesting thing about that, is that China, in its growth, doesn't want to fire a single shot;they want to make deals, as their way of broadening their economic reach, and clout.

Slowly but Surely, China is moving into Afghanistan

Feature: Direct flights between China, Afghanistan promote trade, people-to-people exchanges

This should be a "teachable moment", to the US government, but most probably will not be.

And I say that, because relations between China and the US have absolutely plummeted, under the watch of President "Wreck-it Donald" Trump. The issues concerning the South China Sea, and the US treatment of Taiwan,have not earned him much support in Beijing, not to mention the sanctions and tariffs which have been placed against various Chinese individuals and corporations.

Losing Afghanistan, through a series of Afghani agreements with the Chinese, will prove to be one of the most stinging, dismal failures of President Trump's record, if the future trajectory of Chinese/Afghani relations continues to hold true.

Facial Recognition: 10 Reasons You Should Be Worried About The Technology

By Birgit Schippers, Queen’s University Belfast

Facial recognition technology is spreading fast. Already widespread in China, software that identifies people by comparing images of their faces against a database of records is now being adopted across much of the rest of the world. It’s common among police forces but has also been used at airports, railway stations and shopping centres.

The rapid growth of this technology has triggered a much-needed debate. Activists, politicians, academics and even police forces are expressing serious concerns over the impact facial recognition could have on a political culture based on rights and democracy.

As someone who researches the future of human rights, I share these concerns. Here are ten reasons why we should worry about the use of facial recognition technology in public spaces...

On Wednesday, Google and Mozilla announced they would block an encryption certificate the Kazakhstan government has forced citizens to download. The certificate allows authorities to intercept Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other passwords of the 18 million people in the country. But now with two of the main browser makers pushing back, that surveillance will be more difficult for the government to carry out.

MERCEDES HAS SPARKED PRIVACY CONCERNS BY ADMITTING IT SPIES ON DRIVERS WITH TRACKING DEVICES COVERTLY INSTALLED IN ITS CARS

SOURCE: THE SUN UK

MERCEDES has sparked a privacy row by admitting it spies on drivers with tracking devices covertly installed in its cars.

Drivers who buy a Mercedes through a finance plan give their permission for the vehicle to be tracked when signing lengthy terms and conditions

The secret sensors, fitted to all new and used motors sold by the firm’s dealers, pinpoint the vehicle’s exact location.

The firm sold more than 170,000 new cars in Britain alone last year.

Mercedes will not say how long it has used the sensors.

And it insists they are only activated in “extreme circumstances” — when finance customers have defaulted on their payments.

But it admits sharing car owner information and vehicle location details with third-party bailiffs and recovery firms who repossess the cars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by this development, and look for other auto manufacturers, to follow suit.

RUSSIA ACKNOWLEDGES ITS GROUND TROOPS ARE FIGHTING IN IDLIB

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has acknowledged for the first time the presence of Russian military fighting alongside Syrian regime forces in the Idlib assault, confirming numerous earlier reports.

During a press conference he held following a meeting with Ghana’s Foreign Minister Shirley Botchway yesterday, Lavrov confirmed that “There are Russian soldiers on the ground in the Syrian province of Idlib,” stating that Russia would respond to any attack on its soldiers in Syria.

The acknowledgment by Russia of its direct military presence on the ground in the province is the first which has been made following months of speculation and reports of the troops’ presence over the past month, particularly after Syrian opposition forces sighted the deployment of Russian troops in July.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One cannot really blame Russia for this decision at this point in Syria's war against US trained/armed/funded jihadis.

An all-out decisive battle, with Syria and Russia winning, would most likely cut the heart out of any further support for future destabilization of Syria by the West, with two, local Middle East exceptions; and those would be Turkey, and Israel.
The following incident just happened a couple of days ago:

Turkey complains that one of its convoys got hit by a Syrian missile Strike

And Turkish President Erdogan, a word, please; if you invade a sovereign neighbor, against whom you have not declared war, nor has it declared war on you, I think you, and Turkey's military got off rather lightly, considering the circumstances. Additionally, it appears that the US government absolutely impotent to stop these incursions.

Additionally, Israel believes that it is justified in shelling Syria at any time they please, as indicated by this article, dated July 2019:

Israelis attack in Southern Syria

What really concerns me, is the very real eventuality of a US/Israeli dual pronged approach to preventing Syria's getting it country back, resulting in a potential decap strike on Damascus, which Russia, coordinating with the Syrian military, would have to happen at that point.

War with Russia... over Syria?!?

Folks, this is a lose/lose scenario for both the US, and Israel.

Court Rules That “Patent Troll” is Opinion, Not Defamation

By Joe Mullin

Free speech in the patent world saw a big win on Friday, when the New Hampshire Supreme Court held that calling someone a “patent troll” doesn’t constitute defamation. The court’s opinion is good news for critics of abusive patent litigation, and anyone who values robust public debate around patent policy. The opinion represents a loss for Automated Transactions, LLC (ATL), a patent assertion entity that sued more than a dozen people and trade groups claiming it was defamed.

EFF worked together with the ACLU of New Hampshire to file an amicus brief [PDF] in this case, explaining that the lower court judge got this case right when he ruled against ATL. That decision gave wide latitude for public debate about important policy issues—even when the debate veers into harsh language. We’re glad the New Hampshire Supreme Court agreed...

Iraq Closes Airspace Even To US Coalition Flights After Suspected Israeli Raid

In what is a severely under reported but perhaps the most alarming development out of the Middle East this week, Iraq's government has said it's ready to down any aircraft violating its airspace amid a blanket ban on 'unauthorized' flights not specifically approved by the prime minister's office. Military Times reported the day after Iraq closed its airspace on Thursday:

U.S. military officials in Iraq will now seek out Iraqi approval before launching any air operations, a move made a day after that nation’s prime minister announced a ban of unauthorized flights, including those involving coalition forces fighting ISIS.

Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi called for an end to all “unauthorized flights” including US drones, spy planes, jets, or helicopters on Thursday. The directive demanded that all aerial vehicles comply with Iraqi law and operations must be under Iraqi government authorization.

Despite record budgets, the US Navy is short hundreds of millions for maintenance

The U.S. Navy is short hundreds of millions of dollars for ship depot maintenance this year and is already looking at just shy of $1 billion in unfunded maintenance in 2020, shortfalls that threaten to upend progress toward improved readiness and clearing its maintenance backlog.

During a midyear review of 2019 budget spending, the Navy found it had more than $3 billion in emergency costs that needed to be covered, including nearly $1 billion for ship depot maintenance. And while it’s unclear to what degree the 2019 and 2020 shortfalls overlap, there is at the very least nearly $1 billion in unfunded ship repair, meaning the fleet will need to find money or defer to later dates, according to three sources who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Researchers estimate that from 2006 to 2016, the total amount of money spent by Americans on these four drugs fluctuated between $120 billion and $145 billion each year. By contrast, a different analysis finds that spending on alcohol in the U.S. was estimated to be $158 billion in 2017...
