GOOGLE AND FACEBOOK ARE GOBBLING UP THE INTERNET'S SUBSEA CABLES

More than 5,700 kilometres of the Atlantic Ocean separate the coastlines of France and Virginia. But in 2020 they will be directly connected for the first time by the Dunant submarine cable which will boost internet capacity between Europe and the east coast of the US.

When Dunant becomes operational it will join more than 428 submarine cables, spanning thousands of kilometres, that makeup the backbone of the internet. But this cable is unlike any other.

Named after the Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross and winner of the first Nobel Peace Prize, the cable is owned by Google. It's the first transatlantic submarine cable that has been privately financed and deployed by one of the big tech firms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This acquisition and building of sub-sea cables, will give Google even more control over content; be able to offer it to the highest bidder, and suppress independent media even more than it already does through its algorithms.

Remember what happened in pre-World War II, right after Hitler came to power in Germany??!?

He established control of all German media. He could spin any story in any direction he wanted, and did so with impunity.

FORD CEO FRANKLY ADMITS THAT THE CAR OF THE FUTURE IS A SURVEILLANCE DEVICE THAT YOU PAY TO SPY ON YOU

But the dream of extractive rentierism still haunts the managerial classes.

Take Ford CEO Jim Hackett, whose recent Freakonomics Radio appearance celebrated his company's shift from a car business to a debt-issuance business, with Ford Credit now accounting for a third of the company's profits. Hackett vowed to increase that share by using the leverage he could exert over his debtors to force them to let him spy on them (for example, by doubling down on GM's car radio surveillance), and then cross-referencing this data on the data borrowers are forced to supply in order to buy their cars, and with data-sets from corporate acquisitions like the scooter company Spin.

AMERICANS TURNING ON SOCIAL MEDIA, MOST THINK IT HURTS DEMOCRACY: POLL

U.S. adults have begun to turn on social media giants like Facebook and Twitter, and a majority believes that these social media platforms have done more to hurt democracy and free speech than help.

Last year, 43 percent of U.S. adults thought social media hurt society, but that increased to 57 percent in 2018, according to an Axios poll conducted through mid November.

Both Democrats and Republicans have soured on social media, as Republicans have claimed censorship of conservative voices, and Democrats have complained about the use of targeted ads that they say can be used to discriminate against minorities.

Nine percent more Democrats believe social media hurts free speech than last year, and 17 percent more Republicans feel that way, the poll said.

WITH SAUDIS’ GLOBAL BACKERS BACKING AWAY, YEMENI FACTIONS PREPARE FOR PEACE TALKS

Peace in Yemen could not come at a more crucial time. Yemeni factions are preparing for peace talks in Sweden at the end of November while Saudi Arabia faces intense scrutiny and pressure from its Western allies, as well as possible action from the United Nations Security Council, for leaving nearly 22 million Yemenis requiring urgent humanitarian aid at the mercy of the famine and disease that the Saudi-led coalition has leveraged as weapons of war.

As of July, the coalition’s war against Yemen had killed or injured 37,896 civilians, according to Yemen’s Legal Center for Rights and Development, which tracks civilian casualties. Since then, casualties have skyrocketed by 168 percent as a result primarily of the coalition’s bombardment of the densely populated port city of Hodeida.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fingers crossed here; perhaps Khashoggi did not die in vain, if the eyes of the world are now focused on Saudi Arabia's and the US's war crimes in Yemen.

US AIRSTRIKES KILL AT LEAST 40, MOSTLY CIVILIANS, IN EASTERN SYRIA

Continuing weeks of near-daily civilian death tolls from the US air war in Eastern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that Saturday’s US attacks killed 40 more people, overwhelmingly civilians. The victims were described as mostly women and children.

Saturday’s attacks were against the village of Abu al-Hassan, along the Iraq border. It is adjacent to the ISIS-held towns that the US has been mostly attacking in recent weeks, and which Kurdish ground troops are attempting to invade.

The Syrian Observatory said it was unclear if any of the men killed in the attacks were actually militants, but that 17 children and 12 women were confirmed among the slain. In general, these attacks have targeted residential areas, not militants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; the collective assassination of innocents is a war crime, sir.

SAUDI FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS CIA ASSESSMENT ON KHASHOGGI MURDER IS FALSE

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said on Tuesday that claims, including by the CIA, that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman gave the order to kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi were false, according to an Arabic-language newspaper interview, Reuters reports.

News outlets, including Reuters, reported the CIA’s finding over the weekend in a case that has sparked an international outcry against the world’s top oil exporter. This was the most definitive U.S. assessment to date tying Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler directly to the killing and contradicted Saudi government assertions that he was not involved.

“We in the kingdom know that such allegations about the crown prince have no basis in truth and we categorically reject them, whether through leaks or not,” Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir was quoted as saying in Saudi-owned Al Sharq Al Awsat newspaper in the first Saudi official comment on the CIA report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have two potential narratives here; either Prince Salman did order the hit, or he did not.

IF he did not order the hit, who in the Saudi royal family would have done that, to destabilize the Crown Prince's government; thought they could get away with it;, and be in contention for the title of Crown Prince if Bin Salman got sacked by his dad?!?

The House of Saud does not like its "dirty laundry" to be aired in public; Jamal Khashoggi most likely had no shortage of enemies would would have liked to have seen him murdered. But for Prince Bin Salman to have had this done in broad daylight, in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey?!?

There is still a great deal of evidence which has not yet been allowed to come forward from the Turkish authorities; I would like to hope that will change shortly.

THE ONLY REGIME CHANGE THAT IS NEEDED IS IN WASHINGTON

But my vote for the most magnificent nut in an Administration that is overflowing with such talent would be the esteemed United States Special Representative for Syria Engagement James Jeffrey. The accolade is in part due to the fact that Jeffrey started out relatively sane as a career diplomat with the State Department, holding ambassadorships in Iraq, Turkey, and Albania. He had to work hard to become as demented as he now is but was helped along the way by signing on as a visiting fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), which is a spin-off of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me, that my brother and sister Americans are back to a status quo ante, a status of feudal vassals, as we were before the American revolution.

And why do I say this?

Although this can be expressed as a grasp of the in-your-face obvious,the cold, hard reality that the government is only responsive to the already monied, to and certain foreign governments, Israel being among the worst offenders, in terms of having very effectively hijacked American foreign policy to their own ends.

What is great for Israel, is not at all necessarily good for We the People.

Yes, there are moments when a common good for both countries align; but in the world of the 21st century, those moments are consistently fewer and farther between, particularly when comes to the Zionist vision of "Eretz Israel", which means carving off hunks of adjacent countries to perfect and achieve that vision.

The maps tell the story:

Current map of Israel

Map: Eretz Israel

Notice the hunks of Iraq, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Jordan,Lebanon, Egypt and Iraq which will have to be conquered by Israel in order for this "vision" of Eretz Israel to be achieved?!?

It is no accident that Israel cheered for the US invasion and occupation of Iraq; it is no accident that they have cheered the illegal and unwanted US military actions against Syria, including funding and arming the jihadists against the government; it is no accident that they have started the "political rapprochement" process with Saudi Arabia, which they are hoping to use as a proxy force against Iran, working with the US military, as they have been doing in Yemen; and it is no accident that Israel fully expects the US to go to war against Iran for it.

But as always with Israel, these "wins" are only to be purchased primarily at the cost of American blood, and American money.

I look at the media buys the military has been doing lately, with a lot of saturation ads, to encourage our young men and women to join; but the US military is in one horrifically awful dilemma right now.

They don't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the manufacturing (outsourced in the 80s, to make way for the alleged "service economy")or the money to insure a successful outcome to a conventional war against Russia and/or China.

With the mid-terms over, before there is a war against Russia, China, and/or Iran, I would not bet against the re-institution of the draft, coupled with continuing demonization of Russia, China, and Iran.

Please remember the following reality, as stated on Google:

"Virtually all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service. The law says men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday."

Saudi royals 'have begun plotting against Crown Prince and aim to stop him taking the throne when King Salman dies' following outcry over Jamal Khashoggi's murder

Members of the House of Saud are seeking to find an alternative successor to the throne and prevent Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from becoming king, sources close to the royal court said.

While they say that no change to the line of succession could take place while the 82-year-old King Salman lives, after his death the field may open.

The sources suggest there is a growing conspiracy among members of the House of Saud to ensure the favoured son does not become King.

Port Royal Was Hailed The 17th-Century Sodom, Until Divine Intervention Destroyed It

On June 7, 1692, Port Royal, Jamaica, the pirate-haven that had been hailed “the wickedest city on Earth”, was engulfed in a tidal wave.

It was a city so overrun with liquor, slavers, and prostitution that one in every four buildings was either a bar or a brothel. But on that fateful June day, the very earth beneath the sin city began to shake. The brothels were collapsed and a great tidal wave rose up over the city walls.

RUSSIAN MILITARY INTRODUCES OBLIGATORY COURSES TO PROTECT STATE SECRETS

The Russian Defense Ministry is set to educate officers and soldiers on how to behave online in order to protect state-level secrets. The military also intends to tighten legislation punishing leakers of sensitive data.
The military will launch obligatory courses on the protection of state secrets starting next year, Izvestia newspaper reported, citing the ministry’s press service. The servicemen are set to get insights into what they are allowed to post on the internet, how to use social media safely, what should – and should not – be told to strangers, and other guidance.

The courses will be obligatory for all the servicemen, despite the majority of soldiers not even having clearance for state secrets. Personnel lacking clearance will actually get longer lectures on the matter, since others have already undertaken obligatory secrecy training.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Too danged bad that the US didn't have something in place like that before Hillary Clinton was appointed Secretary of State!! :-)

U.S. chicken farms are so dirty, meat has to be washed with chlorine before being sold for human consumption

Chlorine water is routinely sprayed all over U.S. chicken meat, believe it or not, as a way to destroy pathogens and other harmful compounds that are rampant in America’s disgusting factory farms. Most of Europe has much higher standards than the U.S. when it comes to rearing animals for meat production, hence why American meat typically isn’t welcomed there.

But now that the U.K. is “independent” from the E.U. governance, it’s apparently open game for American imports – including potentially disease-ridden chicken meat that, in addition to possibly containing harmful bacteria, is loaded with bleach chemicals that are harmful to human health.

The most popular vaccines, flu shots, are loaded with mercury, which has been proven to cause neurological and brain damage to humans. The CDC recommends annual mass-mercury injections for all pregnant women and 6-month-young infants. Ever heard of mad hatter syndrome?

Nearly every psychological drug on the market today causes depression, anxiety, confusion, doubt, and other physical and mental conditions that keep people from thinking critically, or thinking straight at all.

Canola oil has been proven by science to cause memory loss, confusion, cognitive decline and dementia. Ever wonder why most Democratic voters can’t seem to remember what happened just weeks or months ago? It’s like “Ground Hog Day” (the movie) every day for these folks.

Genetically modified foods contain pesticides, including chemical insecticides and herbicides, that literally break down the cleansing organs and systematically destroy the brain, causing cancer and dementia.

Google, Facebook, Netflix, Apple and Amazon are all LOSING value: Once mighty tech giants have seen their stock prices plummet by at least 20%

Facebook was hit particularly hard with a fall of 39 per cent below its year high following bad publicity over its hand in the spread of fake news and the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal.

Google's own data protection issues are thought to have forced its parent company Alphabet's 20 per cent drop, while experts suggest that Apple's 20 per cent slump is the result of the hefty price tags of its recent iPhones.

Netflix said its 35 per cent drop was the result of incoming competition from Disney and Apple, which are both heavily rumoured to be starting up their own TV streaming services, while Amazon blamed a widespread sell-off in tech stock.

'The entire world is worried': US-China tensions at global summit spark fears

"The entire world is worried."

That was Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O'Neill's grim statement at the end of a summit of world leaders yesterday.

The two-day APEC gathering, which took place over the weekend on the Pacific island, was marred by tensions between the US and China.

For the first time in the summit's 26-year history, regional leaders failed to issue a formal joint statement, with Mr O'Neill saying "the two big giants in the room" had been unable to agree.

And all the while, Australia and New Zealand sit in an awkward position.

Kremlin critic, facing new charge, sounds alarm on Interpol

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian prosecutors announced new criminal charges against U.S.-born Kremlin foe Bill Browder on Monday, days before a Russian police officer could become president of Interpol in a move that some Moscow critics fear might politicize the law enforcement agency.

Browder and other opponents of Russian President Vladimir Putin have complained that Russia has tried to use Interpol against them. If a Russian is elected as its new president, it could encourage Moscow to intensify attempts to hunt down its critics abroad.

The new charges leveled against Browder accuse him of forming a criminal group to embezzle funds in Russia. They also alleged that he could be behind the death of his employee, Sergei Magnitsky, in a Russian prison.

Afghanistan Takes Center Stage in the New Great Game. All-Asian solution. No Western invaders welcome

...What matters most for China is Afghanistan becoming part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). That’s exactly what Chinese envoy Yao Jing told the opening session of the 4th Trilateral Dialogue in Islamabad earlier this week between China, Pakistan and Afghanistan. “Kabul can act as a bridge to help expand connectivity between East, South and Central Asian regions,” Jing said. Pakistani Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed said: “The Greater South Asia has emerged as a geo-economic concept, driven by economy and energy, roads and railways and ports and pipelines, and Pakistan is the hub of this connectivity due to CPEC.” For Beijing, CPEC can only deliver its enormous potential if Pakistan and India relations are normalized. And that road goes right through Afghanistan. China has been aiming for an opening for years. Chinese intel operatives have met the Taliban everywhere from Xinjiang to Karachi and from Peshawar to Doha. The China card is immensely alluring.

Why Does America Have 13 Million Households That Don’t Have Enough Food To Eat?

Have you ever had a day when your children were crying due to hunger but the cupboards were completely bare and your bank account was empty? If you haven’t, you should consider yourself to be extremely blessed, because this is what real life feels like for millions upon millions of Americans in 2018. As you will see below, a third of all Americans cannot even afford “the basics” each month, and 13 million households are officially considered to be “food insecure”. In other words, they don’t have enough to eat. Many parents out there choose to skip a meal (or two) each day just so that their kids can have full stomachs. But sometimes the money runs out completely, and that is when it gets really tough.

FLASHBACK 2007 - Endangered Species Act Cleared Way for Calif. Fires

The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA) has had unintended consequences that have proved a nightmare for many Americans who have had their properties seized, faced exorbitant fines, and in some cases given jail time, all in the name of protecting rodents and reptiles, principally.

We need only look to the wildfires raging in California at the present time as an example.

No doubt some of the homes still going up in flames are lost as a result of protection for an endangered species.

ESA regulations prevented homeowners from clearing highly flammable brush from around their homes in San Bernadino and San Diego counties. The very brush that brought the flames that destroyed their homes was the protected habitat of an endangered species, the kangaroo rat.

A well-intended action at the time, ostensibly to preserve and protect America's symbol of liberty, the bald eagle, it passed both Houses of Congress with overwhelming votes.
