China about to throw down the gauntlet to the petrodollar

The world’s top oil importer, China, is expected to launch its long-awaited and delayed yuan-denominated oil futures contract at the end of March, according to Reuters’ sources.

The petroyuan is seen as Beijing’s challenge to the US dollar, the dominant global currency in oil contract settlements.

The contract could reportedly be launched on March 26 on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange (INE). The exchange has recently received the approval from China’s State Council.

Trump Dossier 2018: Double Agent

In light of Trump's continuing betrayal of US patriots who voted for him, stuck with through thick and thing during the contested election, the Russian collusion lie ... we now have a growing list of Trump double-crosses: the retirement of dozens of Republicans in the Senate, Congress; the CIA infiltration in the electorate; Jerusalem to be capital of Israel; US troops in Syria, WWIII against Russia; Pompeo to the State Department, Bolton to the NSC; 2nd Amendment rights eviscerated in the new budget (#omnibus2018); I now think that he was a ringer all along, the Russian collusion story just a distraction from a darker agenda for honest US citizens and Christians.

Tucker Drops A WMD On John Bolton’s Ego

Fox News host Tucker Carlson dealt a serious blow to John Bolton’s ego at the end of his Wednesday night interview with the former United Nations ambassador.

Mar 22 18:15


Any support I’ve shown for Trump has gone out the window this evening. And no, I am not being melodramatic. I am a simple man with modest needs. One of them is for my country to stop fighting unnecessary wars. When you wake up and realize that we’re the bad guys and that the media propaganda is there to make you docile, you will see that nothing else matters but human life. Forget about healthcare, transgender bathrooms, abortion, tax cuts — everything is secondary to the life expectancy of the men and women who serve in our military — our sons and daughters, or neighbors.

In an unbelievable move, Trump has replaced Gen. McMaster with the very worst person living in America, John Neocon Scum Bolton.

Bolton was part of a neocon cabal, spearheaded by the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), founded by Bill Kristol, whose lineage is Trotskyite through and through.

John Bolton File

John Bolton is a long time leader of the War Party, was a major promoter of the lies about Iraq which fostered our war, was former Vice President of the neocon nesting American Enterprise Institute and advisor to JINSA (Likud Think Tank in Washington which long urged Israel to violate Oslo accords). Bolton never gained congressional approval, the is legitimacy for his "Ambassadorship" to the UN and is despised by most of the outside world's nations.

America is not safer being hated and represented to the world by one of the main architects of the policies which led to such hatred. Every time he speaks he is a symbol of go-it-alone America and a lightening rod for hate against America.

Kim Jong-un "gave his word" to South Korea

From the North Korea Times

South Korea's foreign minister has said that North Korea's leader has 'given his word' that he is committed to denuclearization, a prime condition for a potential summit with President Donald Trump in May.

Trump has agreed to what would be historic talks after South Korean officials relayed that Kim Jong-un was committed to ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons and was willing to halt nuclear and missile tests.

Trump Wants to Kill Iran Deal, Considers Saudi Arabia’s Nuclear Ambitions

Giving the Wahhabi nukes what could possibly go wrong with that.

"Administration reports on President Trump’s discussions with Salman have, however, neglected a major topic of discussion: Saudi Arabia’s nuclear ambitions. Subsequent reports reveal that the nuclear program has been a topic of discussion, though to what extent still isn’t totally clear. In recent days the crown prince has talked openly of wanting nuclear arms “as soon as possible” if they believe Iran will get them. Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has also confirmed this, and used virtually identical language in doing so."

A Brief History Of The U.S. Relationship To Jihadists And al-Qaeda Across The World

By Brandon Turbeville

To many Americans who pay only a small portion of their time to what is happening in Syria, the claim that the United States is funding and supporting ISIS sounds like absolute insanity. After all, the corporations who feed them their news incessantly inform them of the threat of ISIS at home and abroad and remind them how hard their government is working in order to keep them safe. Even when many Americans can clearly see that the United States is funding extremists in order to destroy Assad, it is difficult for them to grasp that the most frightening enemy of all, ISIS itself, is also being directed by Western intelligence, the GCC, and Israel...

The ‘Deep State’ Is Real — and Dangerous — Paul Says

“Absolutely, there is a deep state, because the deep state is the intelligence agencies that do not have oversight,” he said. “Only eight people in Congress know what they’re doing, and traditionally, those eight people have been a rubber stamp to let the intelligence communities do whatever they want. There is no skeptic among the eight people that are supposedly overseeing the intelligence community.”

Paul said the deep state was on full display during President Barack Obama’s administration, with CIA Director John Brennan and National Intelligence Director James Clapper.

“John Brennan and James Clapper were doing whatever the hell they wanted, without any judicial warrants, and I think there were numerous people in the Obama administration who were using intelligence — one, to try to bring Trump down; but two, also, they were using it for political purposes,” he said. “And this is very, very worrisome.”

Exclusive: Peter Schweizer Reveals Joe Biden’s Son’s Massive Deal with Chinese Company ‘Trying to Steal’ America’s Nuclear Secrets

In an interview with Breitbart News Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak, Schweizer highlighted the financial relationship between Hunter Biden and the Chinese state — including a $1.5 billion deal establishing a private equity firm — as an illustration of what he dubbed “the new corruption.” He further explained how foreign governments purchase political influence through “sweetheart deals” with the children of politicians.

Mansour asked Schweizer to explain the term “princelings” and its application to the children of high-level politicians. “All of [your] books basically show that corruption is like a game of Whack-a-Mole. You knock it down in one area, and then these corrupt politicians find another avenue for graft, and I’m looking at Secret Empires, and there’s another avenue for graft. I want you to explain to us this concept of ‘the princelings.’ This is something you describe in this book. Tell us what that is.”

All 50 states have at least one DHS fusion center, and the story of Brenda Arthur lends credence to the views of civil libertarians that these centers, whatever their stated purpose, have been weaponized against law-abiding American citizens.

Fusion centers were established a few years after the 9/11 attacks by the President George W. Bush administration and expanded under Barack Obama.

The West Virginia Fusion Center website says its mission is to "[e]mbrace proactive intelligence efforts. Those efforts are key to inhibiting criminal networks, whether those groups are terrorists, drug-related groups, organized crime, or other criminal enterprises."

Fusion centers work with "non-traditional sources," including corporate America, to build threat assessments on people.

The US Military Is Making Lasers That Create Voices out of Thin Air

Within three years, the Pentagon's non-lethal weapons lab hopes to have a direct energy weapon that can produce an effect like a haunted walkie-talkie or the biblical burning bush.

Watch the video above and listen carefully for what sounds like a human voice during the second spin. That’s not an audio recording or a broadcast transmitted over radio…it’s not human at all. It’s an auditory effect that’s created by military scientists who manipulated the air with lasers — and it’s the Pentagon’s most interesting idea for stopping people charging checkpoints, or just scaring the crap out of them.

The U.S. military’s Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program, or JNLWD, is inching closer to a weapon that alters atoms to literally create words from thin air. It’s called the Laser-Induced Plasma Effect and, fingers crossed, they hope to be able to say intelligible words within the next three years.

The death toll from the drug war is much less than the actual warfare throughout the world. However, his sentiment is quite appropriate because a significant percentage of the world’s violence could be prevented with a flick of a pen by ending the war on drugs. Imagine if we could essentially eliminate the black market for drug trafficking in Chicago, which has the highest number of gang members and homicides. It’s estimated that up to 80% of the city’s murders are gang-related and one of the main causes of this violence is connected to controlling turf for drug sales.

Math: The Biggest Loser In Illinois Election

The speeches last night said most of what you need to know about the election.

In her concession speech, Jeanne Ives said,

“Illinois does not have a Democratic or Republican problem, it has a math problem.”

It was a core part of her campaign message - that simple math shows the fiscal catastrophe Illinois faces. That’s also been our core theme at Wirepoints since our inception. It trumps all other issues.

In his victory speech, Governor Rauner said,

“To those of you around the state who wanted to send me a message, let me be clear: I have heard you.”

In his victory speech, JB Pritzker said,

“Let’s fund our schools properly so that every child gets a quality education. Let’s institute a progressive income tax, so that we can lower the tax burden on the middle class and those striving to get there. Let’s work toward universal health care by passing my plan for a public option.”

There you have it. The stage is set.

Cambridge Analytica Reportedly Obtained Stolen Emails From Israeli Hackers

In the story, the Guardian reported that CA had obtained emails stolen by Israeli hackers, and had ordered staff to analyze the stolen troves in search of kompromat that could be used against rivals to their clients. In both instances, the Guardian's sources said CA staff refused to handle the stolen material, and it's unclear if any information gleaned from the emails had ultimately been released.

Today's Biggest Winner: Banks To Get An Extra $5 Billion In Interest From The Fed

Today's 25bps hike in rates to 1.75% will have little impact on how much interest is paid to the trillions of dollars held in checking and savings accounts across the US (simply because banks continue to drown in over $2 trillion in excess reserves and thus do not really need all those deposits). It will, however, have a notable impact on how much cash the Fed pays out to banks in the form of interest on excess reserves (just don't call it a subsidy).

As the chart below shows, after today's rate hike, the Fed will be paying $37 billion in annualized interest to banks, an increase of $5 billion from the last rate hike.

They also determined I’m more intelligent than 96% of Facebook users, and I somehow lost intelligence points because I like the Beatles (mostly a John Lennon fan), but that is a subject for an entirely different article.

Offensive Jokes: The UK's Latest Absurd National Security Threat

This time, the UK brought to justice a comedian who taught his girlfriend’s dog how to do a Roman salute.

On Tuesday, Scottish YouTuber Mark Meechan - better known as “Count Dankula” - was found guilty of the hate crime of being “Grossly Offensive” for teaching a pug how to imitate the fascist gesture.

The stunt was not meant to promote fascism or white supremacy in any way and was merely a joke done to irritate Count Dankula’s girlfriend. The court appeared unfazed by this argument, and found him guilty of a crime that could result in two months of jail-time.

US Support for Brutal Saudi Campaign in Yemen Serves Desire to Oppose Iran

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is in Washington this week to visit the White House and will undoubtedly be pleased to learn that the US Senate just killed a bill to terminate Washington’s military support for Saudi warplanes conducting bombing and missile raids in Yemen.

A bipartisan group of senators recently sought to limit the president's power to deploy military forces in unauthorized places, effectively allowing Congress to withdraw troops from a conflict like the Yemeni Civil War, which the United Nations has said has created the world's most severe humanitarian crisis in 50 years.

Taipei Sends Jets, Ships to Surveil Chinese Carrier Strike Group

Taiwanese aircraft scrambled to monitor a Chinese carrier battle group transiting the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday following Chinese President Xi Jinping’s warning that Taiwan would face the “punishment of history” if it seeks independence.

According to the Taiwanese Defense Ministry, the aircraft carrier Liaoning led a group of warships from the People's Liberation Army-Navy through the narrow waterway between China and Taiwan on Wednesday.

Aircraft taking off from the carrier did not do anything out of the ordinary that should concern the Taiwanese people, the ministry noted. Taiwanese fighter aircraft and warships shadowed the carrier's operations while it passed through the strait.

US Navy Submarines Test Fire Torpedoes in Arctic Exercises

US Navy submarines drilling in the Arctic in recent weeks have fired training torpedoes as a way to make sure the vessels’ lethal abilities are maintained in frigid temperatures, according to a new report.

The two nuclear-powered submarines participating in the Ice Exercise event have released several training torpedoes, Military.com reported March 20. The torpedoes did not carry warheads and had a "minimal" amount of fuel, the news outlet said.

The main objective of testing the torpedos is to "test under-ice weapons systems and validate tactics for weapon employment," Ryan Dropek, a weapons tester for the US Navy, said in a March 19 news release.

The late February Syrian-Russian opening of humanitarian corridors out of Eastern Ghouta marked the beginning of the end in the tragedy that is Ghouta’s occupation by terrorists including Jaysh Al-Islam, Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (Al-Qaeda), Ahrar Al-Sham, and Faylaq Al-Rahman.

Face it: Cambridge Analytica story proves Facebook doesn’t give a toss about privacy or democracy

Mainstream media have obsessed over Russia’s alleged use of Facebook to swing the 2016 US election. In reality, it was actually a shady British data-mining firm that was running pro-Trump Facebook propaganda campaigns.
Irony doesn’t feel like strong enough a word.

Which is worse? Russia allegedly buying a few hundred Facebook ads, with the goal of ‘sowing unrest’ in the United States, by exploiting already emotional and divisive issues like gun control and race relations, or Facebook allowing a dodgy British company to mine the data of millions of its users, without the users’ explicit knowledge or consent, and then using that data for political purposes?

How Facebook and its 'vampire apps' can still track you AFTER you remove your account: Here's how to stop them

Facebook's latest scandal has caused many users to question whether they should pull the plug and delete their account in order to protect their private data.

But this may not be enough to keep Facebook, its advertisers, and so-called 'vampire apps', from tracking you across the web.

Facebook uses pieces of code - which include tags, pixels and cookies - to collect information and build up a profile of your digital self - even if you don't have an account.

It also allows thousands of third-party 'vampire apps' to plug in to its social network and siphon off data from its users.

In response, many are choosing to manually remove permissions previously granted to individual apps - a time consuming process.

However, it remains unclear whether this will allow them to claw back data already shared via third-parties.

This means third-party apps may still have enough data to build up a digital profile of you, even if you have stopped using them.
