NSA staff used spy tools on spouses, ex-lovers: watchdog

At least a dozen U.S. National Security Agency employees have been caught using secret government surveillance tools to spy on the emails or phone calls of their current or former spouses and lovers in the past decade, according to the intelligence agency’s internal watchdog.

The practice is known in intelligence world shorthand as “LOVEINT” and was disclosed by the NSA Office of the Inspector General in response to a request by the Senate Judiciary Committee’s top Republican Charles Grassley for a report on abuses of the NSA’s surveillance authority.

In one instance in 2005, a military member of the NSA queried six email addresses of a former American girlfriend - on the first day he obtained access to the data collection system. He later testified that “he wanted to practice on the system” and gained no information as a result of his queries.

The European Energy Crisis Is About To Go Global

It was only a matter of time, really. In a globalized world, energy crunches can hardly remain regionally contained for very long, especially in a context of damaged supply chains and a rush to cut investment in fossil fuels. The energy crunch that began in Europe earlier this month may now be on its way to America. For now, all is well with one of the world's top gas producers. U.S. gas exporters have enjoyed a solid increase in demand from Asia and Europe as the recovery in economic activity pushed demand for electricity higher. According to a recent Financial Times report, there is a veritable bidding war for U.S. cargos of liquefied natural gas between Asian and European buyers—and the Asians are winning.

The Federal Reserve is getting ready to roll back its massive stimulus

The Federal Reserve isn't ready to take its foot off the stimulus gas pedal just yet, but that soon might change.

If the economic recovery continues to progress as expected, the Fed "judges that a moderation in the pace of asset purchases may soon be warranted," according to the bank's policy update published Wednesday.

This raises the prospects of a November announcement that it will step on the brakes. But even if such a move was delayed until December or January, it wouldn't matter much to markets, which have already priced in a policy change, said Seema Shah, chief strategist at Principal Global Investors, in emailed comments.

The Fed could also lift interest rates as early as next year, according to updated projections, as opposed to waiting until 2023 as previous forecasts called for.

Cracks found on the International Space Station are a 'fairly serious issue,' a former NASA astronaut says

Cracks are appearing on the International Space Station, and retired NASA astronaut Bill Shepherd says they're a "fairly serious issue."

After Russian cosmonauts spotted the cracks on the station's Zarya module, Vladimir Solovyov, flight director of the Russian segment of the ISS, publicly revealed the discovery in August. The cracks don't pose a danger to astronauts at this time, NASA says, and the agency told Insider last month that nobody had identified "new potential leak sites" on the station.

But in a House committee hearing on Tuesday, Shepherd told Congressional representatives that "there are probably other cracks we haven't found yet."

"As far as I know, the Russian engineers and the NASA engineers — they've analyzed it — they don't exactly understand why these cracks are appearing now," Shepherd said.

Biden Has Fallen And He Can't Get Up, New Poll Shows

Iowa is not the swing state it once was. In the time since the Obama-Biden ticket carried it by six points in 2012, Iowa has developed to be in a sharply Republican direction.

Trump won it twice. Republican Sen. Joni Ernst replaced longtime liberal Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin, then won reelection by a remarkable margin in 2020. Democrats lost their toe-hold in government with a continuous collapse in the state Senate last decade, therefore turning Iowa into a Republican trifecta state. They failed to overcome the governor's mansion in the Democratic wave year of 2018, and no Democrat has been elected governor since one-termer Chet Culver won in 2006.

Although three out of the seven elected statewide line officers are still Democrats, two of those (the 77-year-old attorney general and the treasurer, who turns 70 later this year) have held office since the Carter and Reagan administrations each. They are remainders, not the party's future.

Scotland effectively decriminalised drugs yesterday in a major shake-up of policing.

Here’s An Epic Reminder On How The Mainstream Media Attempted To SMEAR The NY Post For Breaking The Hunter Biden Laptop Story

We all know how bad the mainstream media in our country is. Last year, we saw it ourselves when the New York Post released their Hunter Biden laptop bombshell in October, just weeks before the election, only to have it utterly rejected by the mainstream media, which was determined to remove President Trump out of the White House.

As previously reported, the laptop has been authenticated as real by a journalist reporting about Joe Biden, according to Politico. Hunter’s email from a Ukrainian businessman thanking him for introducing him to his father, Daddy Joe, was also real. Of course, we all knew that already, and that in and of itself demonstrates how bad the media in this country is.

Drew Holden wrote an incredible Twitter thread today, reminding everyone just how terrible the smear campaign against the NY Post article was.

Australian Police Attempt To BAN Reporters From Covering Their Violent Attacks On Anti Lockdown Protesters

Police in Australia have attempted to prevent journalists from reporting the anti-lockdown demonstrations.

This, obviously, has nothing to do with the cops being caught on film beating and indiscriminately firing rubber bullets at demonstrators.

Harvard researcher says vaccine passports are unscientific and unethical

The website medRviv has stirred up some controversy by publishing a report suggesting that natural immunity may provide a stronger defense against the Delta variant of COVID-19 than vaccines do.

In reaction to this research, Harvard Medical School statistician Martin Kulldorff questioned how effective vaccine passports are in general — and he goes so far as to say that they may be unscientific and discriminatory. A “vaccine passport,” for the record, is the unofficial way we describe any proof of vaccination as required by some states, countries, and event organizers for incoming travelers and guests.

'A Cascade of Calamities': Rubio Says What We All Know About Biden

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) announced that the Biden administration’s announcements on coronavirus booster shots were “political” remarks from an administration that declared it wouldn’t politicize the virus and science and prophesied that there will be a coronavirus surge in other states as the Biden administration limits effective antibody treatments.

Rubio stated, “This was all produced out of the White House. They wanted to show — remember, these were the guys that were saying, I’m not going to politicize COVID, we’re not going to politicize the vaccine and the science. Those pronouncements out of the White House about an additional booster shot was a political statement.”

Eurasia Takes Shape: How the SCO Just Flipped the World Order

The two defining moments of the historic 20th anniversary Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Dushanbe, Tajikistan had to come from the keynote speeches of – who else – the leaders of the Russia-China strategic partnership.

Xi Jinping: “Today we will launch procedures to admit Iran as a full member of the SCO.”

Vladimir Putin: “I would like to highlight the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed today between the SCO Secretariat and the Eurasian Economic Commission. It is clearly designed to further Russia’s idea of establishing a Greater Eurasia Partnership covering the SCO, the EAEU (Eurasian Economic Union), ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and China’s Belt and Road initiative (BRI).”

In short, over the weekend, Iran was enshrined in its rightful, prime Eurasian role, and all Eurasian integration paths converged toward a new global geopolitical – and geoeconomic – paradigm, with a sonic boom bound to echo for the rest of the century.

Racial Differences in One Sentence: Courtesy of Black/Brown Shooters, More Children Have Been Shot in 2021 Chicago Than Have Died of COVID-19 Across the Entire USA

It’s not exactly a secret gun violence in Chicago is almost exclusively committed by non-whites. The Chicago Police Department put out their last murder analysis in 2011, showing only 3.5 percent of the suspects in homicide were white. We have no idea the racial breakdown for non-fatal shooting suspects, but it’s clear the bulk of those are committed by non-whites.

It’s also established Chicago is 33 percent white, a fact helping show just how few homicides and non-fatal shootings involve a white shooter.

All of this helps us understand and put into perspective the shocking data coming out of Chicago in 2021 when you compare minors (almost all non-white) shot in Chicago versus the total number of minors who have died of COVID from across the entire nation.

Out of Control Black Violence: US Crime Data Estimates Show Murder Rate Is At 25 Year High

The New York Times is looking to get ahead of next Monday’s scheduled release of FBI national crime data, which is expected to show a historic spike in murders largely driven by systematically emboldened black criminals.

The anti-racist policies that have created these conditions, including criminal justice reform, have enjoyed bipartisan support from US elites based on narratives amplified by the New York Times. As the 2022 midterms approach, Republicans plan to change their tune on the issue and use it to deal the Democrats an electoral blow.

According to estimates by the Times, homicides per 100,000 jumped from 5 in 2019 to 6.1 in 2020, a year-over-year record rise and the highest the murder rate has been since 1998.

So far in 2021, homicides have risen further compared to 2020 by 10% to about 6.7 according to the paper. The streets of America are more dangerous today than they were in 1997 (6.5). At the same time, the US incarceration rate is at its lowest since 1995.

Isn't It Ironic? Biden Going After Putin For This Hypocrisy

The Biden administration released a statement Monday condemning the Russian elections that saw Vladimir Putin's regime retain their hold on power.

A surveillance video emerged showing ballot box stuffing occurring in the Russian election. Multiple videos and photos allegedly showing ballot fraud have made their way out of Russia since Friday.

The State Department issued a statement; "September 17-19 Duma elections in the Russian Federation took place under conditions not conducive to free and fair proceedings."

Opponents of Putin's United Russia party insisted that there was "mass fraud" during Monday's election, Reuters reported. United Russia won a parliamentary by a margin much bigger than anticipated.

Testing The Law: Texas Abortion Doc Boasts Of Abortions He Did After 'Heartbeat' Bill

A Texas doctor who publicly acknowledged he performed an abortion was sued on Monday in state court by two different plaintiffs, handing Texas the first tests of its new abortion law.

The Texas law bans abortions after about six weeks of gestation when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, and it deputizes private citizens to sue anyone they believe may have aided such a procedure and collect $10,000. Under the law, the restriction can only be enforced through private lawsuits.

The new law went into effect Sept. 1.

No Laughing Matter: Fauci Backs Forced Mandates For Schools

With the possibility of a COVID-19 vaccine for young children expected to become available in the coming months, some school officials are turning their attention to possible state or federal vaccine mandates for their students.

Pfizer announced it planned to apply for approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for a COVID-19 vaccine for children aged between five and 11 years old in early October. The FDA has said children in clinical trials testing vaccines should be monitored for at least two months for any sign of side effects, suggesting that the agency is considering a quicker path to authorize the shot for emergency use than full approval.

Educators and school personnel in Illinois from kindergarten through college are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing. This is in addition to the statewide mask mandate announced by Gov. J.B. Pritzker earlier in August.

Former State Department chief of staff Lawrence Wilkerson says Israel will be “gone” in 20 years

Retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson is the former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell who emerged as a leading critic of the neoconservatives. In remarks to Mass Peace Action last June, he made some bracing assertions about Israel that I just saw the other day:

Israel won’t exist as a state in 20 years because it is delegitimizing itself as an apartheid state.

Israel is a “strategic liability of the first order” for the United States and is “the most likely state in the world to take the United States to Armageddon.”

The U.S. ought to tell Israel now to “change swiftly” or it will cease to fund and protect Israel, but the U.S. will not do so.

The neoconservative agenda in the Middle East was “to set the Levant on fire, to keep Israel’s enemies so at one anothers’ throats” that they could not give Israel trouble.

‘NYT’ glorifies an Israeli war crime, with reporting by AIPAC’s friend Bergman

Here we go again.

The killing was of course an act of war, and one aimed at destroying the Iran deal for good in the last weeks of the Trump administration. The European Union condemned the killing at the time: “This is a criminal act and runs counter to the principle of respect for human rights the EU stands for.”

"During the meeting, the top brass addressed issues of mutual interest, including reducing the risk of incidents during military activities. The meeting was constructive," the ministry noted.

According to the defense ministry, the meeting took place today at the Finnish government’s Koningstedt residence in Vantaa, 40 kilometers north of the Finnish capital.
