70% of women in Tokyo back single-sex train cars,NYC,30%

Women in Tokyo strongly favor having single-sex train cars on public transport, according to a poll of five of the world’s biggest commuter cities released Thursday, despite such policies facing growing criticism.

A Thomson Reuters Foundation survey of 1,000 female travelers in Tokyo, London, New York City, Cairo and Mexico City found less than half supported women-only sections on trains and buses to boost safety.

But nearly 70 percent of women in Tokyo backed the single-sex carriages introduced in the city in 2000 to combat a phenomenon commonly known as chikan, or groping, on trains. More than half of women surveyed in the city said safety was their top transport concern, but seven in 10 were confident they could now travel without being subjected to sexual harassment or violence.

Women in Cairo and Mexico City also said safety was their biggest concern about using public and private transport, and 60 percent and 55 percent respectively said women-only sections on trains and buses would improve safety.

But less than 30 percent of women were in favor of women-only carriages in New York and London, where the time and cost of travel were seen as more pressing issues than safety.

Tokyo has been struggling to stop sexual harassment on trains, where police figures found more than two-thirds of 1,750 groping or molestation cases reported in the city in 2017 took place on trains or in stations.

Women-only carriages provide female passengers with a “peace of mind,” said a spokeswoman for the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, which runs one of the capital’s two main subway networks.

But the policy has been criticized, including by a group of men who boarded a women-only carriage this year to protest what they called a discriminatory practice.

Some men have claimed they were falsely accused of groping, putting them at risk of losing their jobs, and sought out protection such as signing up for insurance which offers legal services in such situations.

Students across Europe implore UN to tell truth about doomed earth

Students Across Europe Excoriate World Leaders for Hiding Scientific Reality of Pending 'Global Collapse'

Representatives from the Schola Europaea international schools demand leading global institutions publicize failures to meet decades-old objectives on sustainable development and climate stabilization

The students—who represent 24,500 children from the Schola Europaea international schools and whose parents include personnel of key E.U. institutions—charge that "the U.N. has failed to reveal to the public the undisputed scientific realities that nothing meaningful has been, is, or is intended to be done to prevent unsustainable development including climate change from inevitably resulting in global social and economic collapse."

Foreigners Dump US Treasuries As They Liquidate A Record Amount Of US Stocks

BE PREPARED: >>>/prepare/1 | https:// archive.fo/elYwR

https:// web.archive.org/web/20180910185746/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/1.html

Earlier this week, DoubleLine's Jeff Gundlach held his latest webcast with investors in which he warned that as a result of rising hedging costs, US Treasury bonds have become increasingly unattractive to foreign buyers. This can be seen in the chart below which shows the yield on the 10Y US TSY unhedged, and also hedged into Yen and Euros. In the latter two cases, the yield went from over 3%, to negative as a result of the gaping rate differential between the Fed and ECB or BOJ.

This is also why, as the next chart from Gundlach showed, foreign holdings of US Treasurys have been declining in recent years, and dropped to just over 36% as a percentage of total holdings, the lowest in over a decade, as domestic holdings of US paper have risen to just shy of 50%, and near all time highs.

Which brings us to today's latest monthly TIC data which showed that, as Gundlach would expect, the holdings of the two largest foreign US creditors, China and Japan, declined to multi year low.

As shown in the chart below, China’s holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell to the lowest level since mid-2017 as the world’s second-largest economy sold US reserves to stabilize the yuan which has been depreciating in recent months due to the ongoing trade war.

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasuries declined for a fourth month to $1.151 trillion in September, from $1.165 trillion in August, a $14 billion decline. Despite the drop, China remained the biggest foreign creditor to the U.S., followed by Japan whose Treasury holdings also dropped by $2 billion to $1.028 trillion, the lowest since 2011.

Investors have been searching for clues whether China is dumping its vast holding of U.S. Treasuries to retaliate against U.S. tariffs, though Beijing has given no indication it’s doing so; meanwhile while the TIC data is relatively accurate, it tends to be revised rather materially which is why it is certainly possible that China's real holdings, when adjusted for valuation and currency changes, are far lower.

Of course, instead of selling Treasurys, China may have decided to hold on to its reserves and allow the yuan to depreciate against the USD, but not too much: so far 7.00 has emerged as a "red line" for the PBOC. The Chinese currency has already depreciated more than 4 percent against the dollar in the past year amid signs of an economic slowdown and capital outflows. In September, China’s foreign-exchange reserves stockpile fell by $22 billion to touch the lowest level since July 2017, however much of that number was due to valuation adjustments.

Going down the list, while Russia's Treasury liquidation was well documented in June and July, two new aggressive sellers of US paper emerged in the latest data: France, whose Treasury holdings declined from $118.4BN to $97.7BN…

USSA: Pentagon Fails Its First-Ever Official Audit

After generations of being a black hole down which money goes, never to return, a team of 1,200 auditors tried to give the Pentagon its first ever comprehensive audit, just to see where all that money went. Unsurprisingly, it went poorly, and was declared a failure.

https://archive.fo/WGZ20

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-pentagon-audit/pentagon-fails-its-first-ever-audit-official-says-idUSKCN1NK2MC

How bad the failure was is something of a mystery at this point, with officials refusing to disclose the exact results, or even ballpark how much money is unaccounted for. The only clue to the sheer scope of the matter is that they believe it will take “years” to sort out.

And if there was one thing more dependable than the Pentagon failing an audit and missing an undisclosed, but vast, amount of money, it’s officials downplaying the matter. Deputy Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan told reporters that the Pentagon “never expected to pass it” in the first place.

Indeed, Shanahan insisted that even though the Pentagon failed the audit, the fact that they even bothered to do an audit at all “is substantial,” and shows effort toward compliance.

That said, he said the issue of audits is “irritating to me.”

More proof the US is headed into third world status, if not already there.

How much is a kilogram? Depends on your 'Planck constant'

https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-science-kilogram/how-much-does-a-kilogram-weigh-depends-on-your-planck-constant-idUKKCN1NL272

https://archive.fo/gcTFt

>It may not change how you buy bananas, but scientists have voted to redefine the value of a kilogram, in what they called a landmark decision that will boost the accuracy of scientific measurements.

>Since 1889, a kilogram has been defined by a shiny lump of platinum-iridium kept in a special glass case and known as the International Prototype of the Kilogram.

>All modern mass measurements are derived from the kilogram, whether micrograms of pharmaceutical medicine or gold dust, kilos of fruit or fish, or tonnes of steel.

>The problem is the prototype doesn’t always weigh the same. Even inside its three glass bell jars it picks up microparticles of dirt and is affected by the atmosphere. Sometimes it needs cleaning, which can affect its mass.

>That can have profound implications. If the prototype were to lose mass, atoms would in theory weigh more since the base kilogram must by definition always weigh a kilogram.

>Scientists have been trying for decades to define a constant value for the kilogram that is derived from immutable physics, in the same way they have done for other standard units (SI units) overseen by the BIPM.

>“The SI redefinition is a landmark moment in scientific progress,” said Martin Milton, director of the BIPM (the French acronym for the International Bureau of Weights and Measures .

>Barry Inglis, who heads the committee for weights and measures, said the implications were immense. “We will now no longer be bound by the limitations of objects in our measurement of the world, but have universally accessible units that can pave the way to even greater accuracy, and even accelerate scientific advancement,” he said.

>The new definitions agreed by the BIPM will come into force on May 20, 2019.

This is a huge advancement in the accuracy of physical measurements. The International Prototype Kilogram has been diverging from it's original mass since it was set as a standard 1875.

INVASION INCOMING PART 1: https://archive.fo/UzxgQ

As migration-related news coverage continues to center around U.S. troops deploying to the U.S.-Mexico border, one service member has reportedly commit treason against The United States of America by smuggling Mexican migrant invaders into the United States.

California National Guardsman Pfc. Edward Jair Acosta-Avila was arrested Nov. 10 when his car was stopped near San Diego, California, about two miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, USA Today reported.

After pulling over Acosta-Avila’s Honda Accord, Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended five individuals, including three undocumented Mexican nationals who were discovered hiding under a blanket in the back seat.

This is sedition, and treason, and is a disgrace to this nation. That is all.

Obesity, Diabetes Soar In Mexican Town Where Coca-Cola Is Used As Drinking Water

THE CURE FOR CANCER: >>>/prepare/53 | https:// archive.fo/31Ylw

https:// web.archive.org/web/20181110155804/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/53.html

A Mexican town is running so low on water that the locals are using Coca-cola as an alternative.

In the town, situated next to a Coca-Cola plant which is draining the local water supply, the sugary concoction is not only drunk but used in religious ceremonies and even as a currency.

Meanwhile obesity and diabetes is soaring among the local residents and Coca-cola accept no responsibility for creating a public health crisis.

RT reports: https://archive.fo/Z8nvk

Cristobal de las Casas, in the Mexican state of Chiapas, has for years been caught between an inept local government and a multinational corporation which is draining its local water supply in a case of crony capitalism at its worst.

Coca-Cola is produced locally at the Femsa plant, which bottles and sells the drink across Mexico. Under a long-standing agreement with the Mexican government, the factory owns the rights to draw out more than 300,000 gallons (around 1,135,623 liters) of water per day.

Desperate locals average more than two liters of soda per day, as it’s often more accessible than bottled water and is almost as cheap, with a 1.5-liter Coca-Cola bottle costing roughly 18 Mexican pesos ($0.88), compared with water, which costs 10 Mexican pesos ($0.48) per bottle.

The Chiapas state has seen a 30-percent increase in the mortality rate from diabetes between 2013 and 2016.

Facebook Spying On Goyim's Families AND Homes Too

Alternatives To State-run Social Media: >>>/prepare/20 | https:// archive.fo/HPl2B

https:// web.archive.org/web/20181110155635/https://8ch.net/ prepare/res/20.html

The social media giant has filed for a patent for tech that allows it to tell who you live with in the same household, reports BuzzFeed News. Titled “Predicting household demographics based on image data,” the patent describes how Facebook can use its facial recognition technology on your photos to identify people in them, then correlate those people with the captions a user writes when they post a photo, as well as cross-referencing everyone’s device information, such as shared IP addresses to discover who lives in your household.

How fucking wonderful.

It would note the people identified in a photo, and how frequently the people are included in your pictures. Then, it would assess information from comments on the photos, captions, or tags (#family, #mom, #kids)–anything that indicates whether someone is a husband, daughter, cousin, etc.–to predict what your family/household actually looks like.

According to the patent application, Facebook’s prediction models would also analyze “messaging history, past tagging history, [and] web browsing history” to see if multiple people share IP addresses (a unique identifier for every internet network).

In one specific example, the model looked at an image a user posted with two females tagged, “#my_boss_at_home,” and another image with a young girl marked “my angel.” Facebook predicted that there were three people in the household, including the male user, and two females, “who are likely the male user’s wife and daughter.”

Oh, and Facebook uses pictures from both its main site and Instagram in this process.

Highlights of the extreme Anti-American provisions in I-1639 include:

Classifying ordinary, recreational rifles in common use as “assault” weapons;

Imposing age-based gun purchase and possession bans on law-abiding adults, including a prohibition on adults aged 18-20 acquiring or purchasing semi-automatic rifles classified as “assault” weapons;

Introducing new storage requirements that impede the use of guns for lawful self-defense and punish gun owners for the acts of criminals;

Imposing a new $25 fee on sales and transfers of all guns that fall within the new definition of “assault” weapons;

Allowing the government to establish a “verification” process to enforce compliance and authorize confiscation of firearms, based on the mandatory disclosure of information from gun retailers and gun owners.

This is a blatant attack against Americans' constitutional freedoms and against law abiding citizens, putting millions of lives at risk.

Lets hope this gets repealed in the courts, and if not, then repealed by SCOTUS in the near future.

Take Your Meds! CIA Niggers Tortured and Drugged Terror Suspects

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has just released a new 90-page CIA report, which was provided in advance to the Associated Press (AP), shows how the government's top spy agency considered using a drug it believed might work as a truth serum and force terror suspects to spill the beans about future attacks.

The spy agency determined that a drug called Versed, a sedative frequently prescribed to reduce anxiety, was “possibly worth a try.” But according to AP, the CIA did not ask government courts to approve its use.

The secret program was called “Project Medication” – is now disclosed in a once-classified report that was provided to the ACLU under a court's order and was released Tuesday.

The CIA report revealed the internal struggle that medical personnel working in the agency's interrogation program - routinely breached their professional ethics with the chance to save lives by preventing future attacks.

“This document tells an essential part of the story of how it was that the CIA came to torture prisoners against the law and helps prevent it from happening again,” said ACLU attorney Dror Ladin.

CIA doctors, psychologists, physician assistants, and nurses were, directly and indirectly, involved in the interrogation program from 2002 to 2007, the report said. They evaluated and monitored 97 detainees in ten secret CIA bases overseas.

The report said the CIA completely hid the drug-assisted interrogations from the Justice Department because there were “some significant ethical concerns."

The Justice Department spent months approving various forms of interrogation tactics, including sleep deprivation, confinement in small spaces and the waterboarding. It was noted the CIA’s counterterrorism team “did not want to raise another issue with the Department of Justice,” the report said.

Before the agency selected Versed, the report said government scientist studied many reports of old Soviet drug experiments as well as the CIA’s discredited MK-Ultra program from the 1950s and 1960s that involved human experimentation with LSD and other mind-altering drugs, in the attempt to obtain the holy grail of truth serums.

“But decades later, the agency was considering experimenting on humans again to test pseudo-scientific theories of learned helplessness on its prisoners,” Ladin said.

GAME OVER: Abrams Ends Run for Governor Against Kemp

AJC - Stacey Abrams halted her run for Georgia governor Friday, but the Democrat said she would not concede the contest to Republican Brian Kemp and planned to launch a voting rights group to file “major” litigation challenging election policies.

As state officials prepare to certify the vote, Abrams acknowledged the law “allows no further viable remedy” to extend her quest to be the nation’s first black female governor. But she laced her speech with biting criticism of Kemp, whom she accused of leveraging his role as the state’s top elections official to suppress voters.

“I will not concede,” she added, “because the erosion of our democracy is not right.”

Kemp, who stepped down as secretary of state two days after the election, swiftly thanked Abrams for her “passion, hard work and commitment to public service,” ratcheting down divisive rhetoric he’d long used to describe her.

“The election is over and hardworking Georgians are ready to move forward,” Kemp said. “We can no longer dwell on the divisive politics of the past but must focus on Georgia’s bright and promising future.”

Abrams’ speech marked the end of a campaign that made her a national star by embracing liberal issues in a state where Democrats often run toward the middle of the electorate.

Millenial Monoply offends millenials with stereotypes,“Forget real estate.You can’t afford it anyway

The point of the new game, rather than buying real estate, is to enjoy experiences - because as the box explains: “Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway.”

Monopoly has released a new edition targeted towards millennials - and it has everything from avocados to thrift stores, but no houses.

Hasbro, the game makers behind the iconic board game created the millennial version to appeal to people born between 1981 and 1996 - by including all types of stereotypical millennial content.

Experiences include activities such as travel, dining at vegan restaurants, and sleeping on a friend’s couch, and the winning player is the one who collects the most.

The game makers also gave the game’s mascot Rich Uncle Pennybags a millennial makeover - by adding earbuds, blue sunglasses, a disposable coffee cup and a gold “participation” medal.

Hasbro priced the game at $19.82 and it is currently sold out on Walmart’s website, where it was exclusively sold.

However, not everyone is amused by the new game - least of all millennials themselves, who expressed their feelings on social media.

“As a millennial who loved playing Monopoly, I’m disappointed Hasbro made this garbage. A game that profits off the backs of millennials while simultaneously mocking them? Must have been a Baby Boomer in charge of making it.”

$2k iPhone aren't sellng,Apple makes risky Decisions

Let’s start with Apple’s decision that it will no longer be reporting the sales numbers of the iPhone. Given the flat annual sales of the iPhone since the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch, the story about rising numbers no longer belonged to the actual unit sales, it belongs to the increasing margins and increasing average selling price.

If you’re going to sell success, you need bigger numbers. With the iPhone XS Plus clocking in at $1500+ in some configurations the scope for larger margins and higher selling prices is pretty much priced out the market. Hiding the iPhone numbers means that the focus can be placed on the increasing revenue from software and services, rather than hardware revenue..

Can Apple rely on revenue from services and software to replace the hardware margins? That could be a tough ask given that 59 percent of Apple’s revenue comes from the iPhone. Services is a quarter of that, at 15 percent.

Here's the revenue breakdown:

iPhone: 59.1 percent

iPad: 6.5 percent

Mac: 11.8 percent

Services: 15.9 percent

Other products: 6.7 percent

What happens to Apple’s drive to increase revenue from services as it sells fewer devices? Because you still need hardware to run your bespoke services on.

Tim Cook has lifted Apple to be a trillion-dollar company. Can he keep it up with his dangerous decision to change the storyline away from the iPhone?

23 dead, 110 missing in California fire,entire city of Paradise leveled

The most destructive wildfire in California history leveled nearly the entire city of Paradise as firefighters battled massive fires on both sides of the state. At least 23 people were killed by the so-called Camp Fire in Butte County, authorities said. Most of the buildings in Paradise are in ruin and its business district is destroyed.

Only a day after the Camp Fire began, the blaze had destroyed more than 6,700 structures, almost all of them homes. Authorities said there were 110 people still missing.

"We are doing everything we possibly can to identify those remains and make contact with the next of kin so we can return the remains to the family," Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Saturday evening.

The Camp Fire is just one of three major wildfires that firefighters are battling across the state. The 70,000-acre Woolsey Fire tore through Malibu mansions and working-class suburban homes in Southern California's hills and canyons. In less than two days, the Woolsey Fire and the Hill Fire, which is also burning in Southern California, prompted evacuation orders for more than 250,000 people.

Authorities plan to step efforts to recover and identify people who died in a Northern California wildfire that has killed 23 people.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said he will add another coroner's team to help find bodies in burned areas, and he ordered a DNA lab truck to assist in identifying human remains.Honea said in some cases, investigators have only found bones or bone fragments.

Officials are receiving expertise from anthropologists from nearby California State University, Chico.

Malibu looks like a war zone, with homes and businesses burned to the ground. Charred earth as far as the eye can see. All this, as the Woolsey fire is still nowhere near contained, CBS News' Jamie Yuccas reports.

Federal Judge Orders Hillary Clinton To Testify For Unpunished Crimes

Hillary Clinton has 30 days to answer more questions under oath regarding her private email account or face contempt of court charges, a federal court judge ruled Wednesday.

“Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton tweeted after a hearing in federal court.

Under oath in October 2016 — near the end of the 2016 presidential campaign — Clinton answered “does not recall” to 20 out of 25 written questions regarding her private email server. However in 2018, with a new Attorney General in place, the feeling in D.C. is that the noose is slowly tightening around Clinton’s neck.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan heard the case, which stems from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit regarding the controversial employment status of longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who was granted a “special government employee” designation to accept outside employment while she was working at the State Department.

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha! https://t.co/VBKkm3H8gi pic.twitter.com/00k6pRsHNe

— Tom Fitton (@TomFitton) November 15, 2018

Washington Examiner reports: https://archive.fo/apEhZ

Judicial Watch sought to compel further answers from Clinton after her written testimony under oath in October 2016 regarding her Clinton.com, non-state.gov email system.

In a phone conversation with the Washington Examiner, Fitton said Clinton will have 30 days to answer the questions in writing under oath, pertaining to the set-up of the email and any advisories she got about her emails from the State Department.

Fitton, who said he was joined in the courtroom Wednesday only by Michael Bekesha, a member Judicial Watch’s legal team, said it ruling was a “great development.“

However, he said it was “outrageous” that the two years into the Trump administration that the Justice Department and State Department were still “defending Hillary Clinton.”

Training kids to kill at Ukrainian nationalist camp

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — The campers, some clad in combat fatigues, carefully aim their assault rifles. Their instructor offers advice: Don’t think of your target as a human being.

So when these boys and girls shoot, they will shoot to kill.

Most are in their teens, but some are as young as 8 years old. They are at a summer camp created by one of Ukraine’s radical nationalist groups, hidden in a forest in the west of the country, that was visited by The Associated Press. The camp has two purposes: to train children to defend their country from Russians and their sympathizers — and to spread nationalist ideology.

“We never aim guns at people,” instructor Yuri “Chornota” Cherkashin tells them. “But we don’t count separatists, little green men, occupiers from Moscow, as people. So we can and should aim at them.”

The nationalists have been accused of violence and racism, but they have played a central, volunteer role in Ukraine’s conflict with Russia — and they have maintained links with the government. Earlier this year, the Ministry of Youth and Sports earmarked 4 million hryvnias (about $150,000) to fund some of the youth camps among the dozens built by the nationalists. The purpose, according to the ministry, is “national patriotic education.”

Cherkashin is a veteran of the fight against pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine; he was wounded in combat and later came to lead Sokil, or Falcon, the youth wing of the Svoboda party. It is important, he says, to inculcate the nation’s youth with nationalist thought, so they can battle Vladimir Putin’s Russia as well as “challenges that could completely destroy” European civilization.

Among those challenges: LGBT rights, which lecturers denounce as a sign of Western decadence.

“You need to be aware of all that,” said instructor Ruslan Andreiko. “All those gender things, all those perversions of modern Bolsheviks who have come to power in Europe and now try to make all those LGBT things like gay pride parades part of the education system.”

While some youths dozed off during lectures, others paid attention. Clearly, some were receptive.

During a break in training, a teenager played a nationalist march on his guitar. It was decorated with a sticker showing white bombs hitting a mosque, under the motto, “White Europe is Our Goal.”

2 Navy SEALs,2 Marines strangle Green Beret in choke hold:charged with hazing

Two SEALs from the Navy's elite SEAL Team Six and two Marines have been charged with murder and involuntary manslaughter in the death of Army Green Beret Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar in Mali in June 2017. If the case moves to a court-martial, the four members of some of the U.S. military's most elite units face the possibility of life in prison without parole.

"Charges were preferred yesterday against two Sailors and two Marines in the death of Army Staff Sergeant Logan Melgar, who died June 4, 2017, while serving in Bamako, Mali," said a Navy statement.

"The four personnel face charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice including Felony Murder, Involuntary Manslaughter, Conspiracy, Obstruction of Justice, Hazing and Burglary," the statement said.

Charge sheets identify the two SEALs as serving with Naval Special Warfare Development Group, the official name for SEAL Team Six, the elite unit most famous for carrying out the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. The two Marines belong to the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command.

The charge sheets allege that on the night of June 10, the four special operations service members obtained duct tape, broke down the door into Melgar’s sleeping quarters, bound him up with duct tape and then strangled him to death while in a chokehold. The charge sheets do not provide a motive for Melgar's death but under the burglary charge alleges that the four broke into Melgar's bedroom "with the intent to assault."

Trump effectively demands soldiers stationed abroad be excluded from voting in Florida midterms

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/ny-pol-trump-military-votes-florida-midterms-20181112-story.html

>What a way to honor the nation’s men and women in uniform.

>As the rest of the country observed Veterans Day, President Trump on Monday demanded that election officials stop counting votes in Florida’s razor-thin midterms and instead “go with” the Election Day results — a proposal that would effectively exclude active duty U.S. soldiers from having their voices heard.

>“The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged,” Trump tweeted shortly after dawn, without providing any evidence. “An honest vote count is no longer possible — ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!”

>The Sunshine State accepts ballots cast overseas through Nov. 16, provided that they were postmarked by Nov. 6. The exception is tailored to accommodate voters living overseas — particularly members of the U.S. armed forces who are stationed abroad.

>Trump’s indirect knock against American soldiers came as schools, banks, courts and government offices remained closed in honor of Veterans Day. It also came less than 48 hours after Trump canceled a visit to a U.S. World War I cemetery in Paris because it was raining.

>Jon Soltz, an Iraq War veteran and the chairman of the left-leaning VoteVets advocacy group, was incensed by Trump’s latest slight against service members.

>“How many times does this guy have to show he doesn’t respect men and women who served?” Soltz told the Daily News. “From insulting POWs, to sending troops to the border for an election stunt, to dissing a Veteran’s Day ceremony because of rain, and now to saying military ballots shouldn’t be counted, Donald Trump continually shows he has no respect for service, or those who served.”

He was a pickin' & now he's a deadin' Roy Clark

Roy Clark, a country music star and former host of the long-running TV series "Hee Haw," died Thursday, his representative told CNN.

He was 85.

Clark died of complications from pneumonia at his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, according to publicist Sandy Brokaw.

Raised in Washington D.C., the guitarist and banjo player began his musical career as a young teen. He made his first appearance at the Grand Ole Opry at age 17.

Band gigs led to television appearances on "The Tonight Show" and "American Bandstand."

In 1969, Clark and Buck Owens were tapped to co-host "Hee Haw." The country music and comedy show aired in syndication for more than two decades, with Clark as host or co-host its entire run.

In a tribute to Clark sent by his representatives, they shared some quotes from the country star about his career.

In 1982, Clark won a Grammy for best country instrumental performance for "Alabama Jubilee." He was a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.

Trump confuses Baltics states with Balkans & accuses confused leaders of starting Yugoslav wars

When President Donald Trump met with Dalia Grybauskaitė of Lithuania, Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia and Raimonds Vējonis of Latvia earlier this year, he started with a criticism. At the White House in April, Trump opened by chastising the Baltic leaders for starting the war in the 1990s that ended with the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. The Baltic leaders were apparently very confused and it took them “a moment” to realize that the commander in chief was confusing Baltic states with the Balkans, reported French newspaper Le Monde.

Although it’s hardly surprising world geography isn’t Trump’s strong suit, this case is particularly notable considering Melania Trump is originally from the Balkans. The first lady was born in Slovenia, which gained independence in 1991 at the start of the Balkan wars. As Le Monde wrote, Trump remained “apparently uneducated in the matter by his wife, Melania, originally from the former Yugoslavia.”

Trump has 'retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment' after midterm losses

one week, later, President Trump has transformed from a nonstop campaign-rally machine to a nearly invisible figure communicating mostly by tweet. Trump returned late Sunday from a 43-hour trip to Paris, where he sat out some big events and clashed with allies, and on Monday he ended his public day at 10:03 a.m., skipping the Veterans Day trip to Arlington National Cemetery every president since at least John F. Kennedy has made to lay a ceremonial wreath. On Tuesday, Trump's only public appearance was a brief showing at a Diwali ceremony, and he had Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meet with visiting King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Trump sent Vice President Mike Pence to the Asia Pacific Economic Conference (APEC) summit typically attended by presidents, potentially offending Asian leaders; canceled a trip to Colombia; and opted not to visit the U.S. troops he sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to protect a "caravan" he seems to have forgotten about. Maybe Trump is just tired, but White House officials and Trump allies say he's in a particularly sour mood amid a string of late Democratic victories in areas where he campaigned, looming investigations by House Democrats, expected indictments from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and bad press from his France trip.

"Trump has retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment," the Los Angeles Times reports, citing multiple administration sources. "Behind the scenes, they say, the president has lashed out at several aides," sketching "a picture of a brooding president 'trying to decide who to blame' for Republicans' election losses, even as he publicly and implausibly continues to claim victory."

"It's like an episode of Maury," one former Trump aide told Politico. "The only thing that's missing is a paternity test." You can read more about Trump's "five days of fury" at The Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, and Politico has more on the mood in the White House.

North Korean mystery weapons test creates possibility of military confrontation with US

North Korea’s surprise announcement Friday that dictator Kim Jong Un has supervised the test of an unspecified “high-tech tactical weapon” means that a potential military confrontation between the U.S. and the North over nuclear weapons and missiles is once again a real and frightening possibility.

The announcement is a clear signal from Kim that he could begin testing much more powerful weapons – think long-range missiles that could hit the U.S. – whenever he wishes.

While we don’t know what the North Korean mystery weapon is, some experts who study the hermit kingdom believe it is probably some sort of new multiple-rocket launch system.

But this isn’t all the bad news that came out of North Korea recently. The New York Times reported that Pyongyang is expanding its nuclear weapons and missile arsenals.

Now, to be clear, the Kim regime never promised to stop building atomic bombs or advanced missiles. In fact, in a New Year’s Day address this year Kim said he would “mass produce” nuclear warheads and missiles.

Pedophile Priest Who Raped 9-Yr-Old Found Dead With Severed Penis

A priest accused of raping a 9-year-old girl died in hospital after bleeding from a wound caused by the girl’s father who tracked down the preacher, beat him, and severed his penis from his body.

Preacher Mase Malgas, 66, died after being attacked on September 30 by the girl’s father, a South African courtroom was told yesterday.

Constable Lundi Nqwelo was called as a witness by the state prosecutors and testified that the defendant had been told by his ex-wife that their 9-year-old daughter had been raped, and that Mr Malgas, a local priest, was the perpetrator.

The defendant, his ex-wife and a friend of the couple then tracked down Mr Malgas, who was based at St Philips Church in Gompo, and burst into his home intent on revenge, the court heard.

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/east-london-castration-trial-latest/

Nqwelo said the accused, who cannot be named as it would also reveal his 9-year-old daughter’s identity, then “severely beat Mr Malgas” and began chopping off his penis.

He angry father did not complete the castration, but left the man with “grievous” wounds, the East London court heard.

The trio then escorted him, by now very low on blood and in a life-threatening condition, to the Scenery Park Police Station, where they hoped he would be arrested.

East London police officers immediately called for medical assistance, but Mr Malgas continued bleeding out and was later found dead in a hospital bed.

Chicago Cops kill black wearing vest & hat saying security guard while detaining white suspect

When police arrived after reports of a shooting over the weekend at a bar outside Chicago, witnesses say Jemel Roberson, a 26-year-old security guard who worked there, had already subdued the alleged assailant in the parking lot, pinning him to the ground.

Adam Harris, who was at Manny's Blue Bar in Robbins at the time of the incident on Sunday, told WGN-TV that Roberson was holding "somebody on the ground with his knee in his back, with his gun in his back" when officers from neighboring Midlothian got there early Sunday.

Midlothian Police Chief Daniel Delaney said that's when one of his officers "encountered a subject with a gun" and shot him, according to a statement given to the media.

But the "subject" was Roberson, not the suspect in the bar shooting.

On Tuesday, Illinois State Police issued a statement saying that "a Midlothian Police Officer encountered a subject in plain black clothing with no markings readily identifying him as a Security Guard, armed with a gun in the west parking lot."

"According to witness statements, the Midlothian Officer gave the armed subject multiple verbal commands to drop the gun and get on the ground before ultimately discharging his weapon and striking the subject," the statement said.

Roberson was holding a firearm he was licensed to carry. Other witnesses, and a lawsuit filed by Roberson's family, reportedly said he was wearing a hat emblazoned with the word "security."

"Everybody was screaming out 'Security!' " Harris told WGN. "And they still did their job, and saw a black man with a gun, and basically killed him."

Another witness, Jakia Woods, told member station WBEZ's Miles Bryan that Roberson was wearing an orange vest and the hat marked "security."

She said it was "absolutely clear" that he was a security guard.

Donald Trump To Snub CNN At All Future Press Conferences, Will Not Pick Them For Questions

A judge is expected to announce Friday whether he will order the Trump administration to return the White House press credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta.

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly, an appointee of President Donald Trump, has set a hearing for Friday morning to announce his decision.

CNN has asked the judge for an order that would force the White House to immediately hand back the credentials that give Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, access to the White House complex for press briefings and other events. CNN wants Acosta's credentials restored while a lawsuit over his credentials' revocation goes forward.

The White House revoked Acosta's credentials after he and Trump tangled during a press conference last week.

Trump has made his dislike of CNN clear since before he took office and continuing into his presidency. He has described the network as "fake news" both on Twitter and in public comments.

Horrible! Criminal IRS Trying To Cheat Americans Out of Tax Cuts

Last year’s big tax cut is about to start shrinking.

The Internal Revenue Service on Thursday announced the tax code’s parameters for 2019, implementing a new method for making inflation adjustments that will result in higher tax payments—and government revenue—over time.

The shift will cost Americans $133.5 billion over a decade, according to Congress’s Joint Committee on Taxation.

The tax law enacted last year lowered tax rates and reduced tax burdens for most households in 2018. It also required the IRS to switch to a different, slower-moving measure of inflation to adjust a variety of tax-code features for rising prices.

The standard deduction, tax brackets and other items will still increase most years, but now they will usually climb more slowly than they would have under the old formula.

The result: More income gets taxed at all, or taxed at higher rates.

The bite starts as a nibble. In 2019, the standard deduction for a married couple will be $24,400. The deduction would have been $24,550 under the old inflation-adjustment method, according to calculations by the Tax Foundation, a conservative-leaning group.

In the 24% tax bracket, making the standard deduction $150 smaller than it otherwise would have been would cost a taxpayer $36 in higher taxes. That will be reflected on tax returns filed in early 2020.

The gaps widen over time. Many taxpayers got their largest benefit from the new tax law in 2018 and will watch it shrink annually.

“When you sit down and figure out your taxes, I don’t think you’re going to notice this amongst all the other noise,” said economist Jared Bernstein, a senior fellow at the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Wikileaks’ Julian Assange ‘CHARGED in US

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7754377/wikileaks-julian-assange-charged-accident-virginia-us/

https://archive.is/M2npI

The document, reportedly written by Kellen Dwyer, did not specify the nature of Assange's apparent charges, but mentioned Assange's name twice and urges a judge to keep the matter sealed.

It later states: "The complaint, would need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can therefore no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition".

WikiLeaks said on Twitter that it was an apparent "cut and paste" mistake.

The prosecutor later says that "due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged".

Mr Assange has been living inside Ecuador's embassy in London for over six years after the country granted him asylum as he tried to avoid extradition to Sweden.

Any arrest could have an impact on the investigation in the US into any ties between Russia and the 2016 presidential campaign.

The filing was discovered by Seamus Hughes, a terrorism expert at George Washington University in Washington DC.

SAYING ‘MEN AREN’T WOMEN’ NOW QUALIFIES AS ‘HATEFUL CONDUCT’ ON TWITTER

Twitter’s crusade against “hate speech” has vanquished yet another meany face. A prominent Canadian feminist says that the company flagged a tweet she wrote which meekly suggested that men aren’t women. Isn’t Twitter fun?

Meghan Murphy, editor of Canada’s leading feminist news portal, Feminist Current, was recently informed by Twitter that two of her tweets had violated the platform’s rules against “hateful conduct.”

One of the offending tweets stated that “men aren’t women,” while the other asked: “How are transwomen not men?”

“This is f*cking bullshit @twitter. I’m not allowed to say that men aren’t women or ask questions about the notion of transgenderism at all anymore?” Murphy tweeted. “That a multi billion dollar company is censoring BASIC FACTS and silencing people who ask questions about this dogma is INSANE.”

Garlic Found To Destroy Resistant Bacteria

Some say garlic elevates savory dishes, while others avoid it like the plague. However, if you tend to shy away from eating garlic, you might want to think twice as studies show it works remarkably well at killing resistant bacteria and fighting chronic infections.

https://healthsciences.ku.dk/news/2017/11/garlic/

Closely related to vegetables with pronounced flavors like onions, chives, shallots and leeks, garlic has been used in cuisines around the world for thousands of years. While it’s full of nutrients like iron, magnesium, selenium and zinc, it is perhaps best known for its medicinal purposes.

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen carried out a study that showed a compound in garlic can destroy the important components of bacteria’s communication systems involving regulatory RNA molecules. This can also have the effect of helping antibiotics work again in difficult cases where it once failed to make an impact.

https://archive.fo/RkIWW

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/02/140218124538.htm

In addition to stopping DNA molecules in the bacteria, the garlic compound can also destroy the protective slimy matrix that surrounds the bacteria known as biofilm. Once the biofilm has been weakened or destroyed, the body’s own immune system and antibiotics can attack the bacteria more directly and get rid of the infection with ease.

The researchers say that they believe their garlic drug could help treat patients whose outlook is otherwise poor. A biotech firm is developing the compound for use against bacterial infections, and human clinical trials are expected to be carried out soon.

The group has been studying garlic’s effect on bacteria since 2005, when they learned that garlic extract can inhibit bacteria. In 2012, they found that it’s a sulfurous compound in garlic known as ajoene that is responsible for this effect. The new study, which is published in the Nature Scientific Reports, explores the ability of ajoene to destroy this bacteria in depth.

They looked at Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which are two very different types of bacteria that generally must be fought using different methods. The fact that the garlic compound can address them both at the same time is extremely promising.

As aggressive multi-resistant infections continue to challenge medical professionals around the world and put patients’ health at risk, this natural treatment could prove quite useful. While the researchers emphasize that garlic contains such a small amount of ajoene that people would need to consume mass quantities of it to get the benefits, there are still plenty of reasons to start using more of it in your own kitchen.

For example, it can boost heart health, regulating cholesterol levels and preventing blood clots from forming. Its antiseptic properties make it useful in treating infected wounds, ear aches, and other infections, and raw garlic can also be used to address colds and coughs.

Imports Of US Soybeans To China Plunge, Russian Farmers Pick Up The Slack

As was widely expected, China's decision to slap 25% tariffs on US soybeans has caused orders from Chinese importers to slow to a trickle as Chinese companies are slowly finding other markets to source the crops, which are typically ground into protein meal to feed China's massive population. And in addition to Brazil, which has seen exports to China rise as it surpasses the US as the world's largest producer of soybeans, Russia's nascent soybean industry is undergoing a boomlet at the expense of American producers.

According to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the country's soybean producers could take over the market share that was effectively abandoned by the US when Trump launched his trade war with China, which, despite a tentative agreement for Trump to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping later this month, is showing no signs of slowing. As RT pointed out, China and Russia, which are already working together to increase bilateral trade denominated in their respective currencies, are also planning to work more closely to foster trade in agricultural goods, including pork, rice, poultry, fish.

"Soybeans are in very big demand in China," Medvedev told reporters Wednesday during his three-day visit to China.

"The Chinese market is huge as they import about 95 million tons of soybeans annually, including 30 million tons from the US."

This comes as US shipments of soybeans to China reportedly shrank by more than 80% in September as the bite from the tariffs finally started to impact the market.

"A certain part of the soy market has been made available. We agreed with the Chinese partners to hold a more active presence in this particular segment," Medvedev said, stressing that the step provides Russia with a good opportunity to boost soybean production.

The latest federal data, through mid-October, shows American soybean sales to China have declined by 94 percent from last year’s harvest. Meanwhile, Russian exports are booming, with Russian farmers expected to harvest a record 3.9 million tons in the current season that ends in 2019.

And as we pointed out earlier this week, this has left North Dakotan soybean farmers in a difficult spot, as orders from their farms have slowed to a trickle.

INVASION INCOMING PART 1: Hundreds of Migrant Invaders Arrested, Thousands More Incoming

As thousands of troops deployed to the southern border await the arrival of a caravan of migrants heading towards the U.S., border patrol agents in Arizona have already been busy, detaining more than 650 illegal immigrants in just two days this week.

Agents in the Yuma Sector said they detained 654 people – most reportedly being family units or unaccompanied minors from Guatemala - on Monday and Tuesday.

Officials (lie), claiming the groups of illegal immigrants are not believed to be associated with the large caravan of mostly Central American migrants that have prompted the military deployment.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday a group of 55 Central Americans waded across the Colorado River near Yuma and surrendered to agents after walking around vehicle barriers in the area.

“Larger numbers [of illegal immigrants] have started to illegally cross shallow portions of the Colorado River near Yuma,” a press release said.

Vinny Dulesky, the special operations supervisor for Yuma Sector public affairs, told Fox News on Thursday that the majority of the groups came in through the east side of the port of entry and had cut through their metal fences to cross in.

He said he did not know the extent of the damage to the fences, but expected fixing them could cost upwards of $1,600 for each one.

“It can get pricey,” Dulesky said.

https://archive.fo/XLjzv

More than a dozen members of the migrant caravan were arrested Wednesday night along U.S.-Tijuana border, a border patrol source in the San Diego sector told Fox News.

A small group was arrested near the beach in an area called Playas de Tijuana. A large group was arrested in the mountains east of Otay Mesa, a San Diego community that straddles the Mexican border, the source said. All were arrested for trying to cross the border illegally, the source said.

Separately, a fight broke out Wednesday night in Tijuana between local Mexicans and Hondurans arriving in the caravan. The migrants complained that the locals were yelling: “Go home. We don’t want you here!” Members of the caravan complained to reporters that local police made no attempt to break up the fight.

The developments come as more than 2,000 members of the caravan – which has made international headlines for the past month and added fuel to the already heated immigration debate – are expected to arrive at the border on Thursday. Hundreds of migrants began arriving at the border this week.

Third World Hellhole: Sweden's Leftists Want To Confiscate Homes To House Illegal Migrants

The Green Party in Sweden has suggested confiscating the homes of citizens and giving them to migrants if the property is deemed to be too large or if the owner has more than one residence.

Blogger Katerina Janouch reveals how the party wanted to introduce a new law which would allow “Municipalities to seize housing to give them refugees.”

Under the proposal, authorities would be able to “evacuate people who have too large housing,” for example “couples where the children moved home or cohabited where the partner has a residence elsewhere.”

Under any such legislation, homeowners wouldn’t even be compensated, whereas before the government would have had to pay them at least 125% market value.

After attracting controversy, the proposal was apparently withdrawn. A list of names of people who were liable to have their homes confiscated was also reportedly circulated, although in the article it’s not clear whether this occurred in Sweden or Norway.

The Green Party is by no means a fringe force in Swedish politics, being a minority member of the country’s coalition government.

Given such an absurd suggestion, is it really any surprise that liberal basketcase Sweden is basically one giant meme at this point?

Earlier this year, students in Spain were forced to leave their homes despite having paid their accommodation fees to make way for migrants who just arrived on the Aquarius rescue ship in Valencia.

Back in 2016, a hospital on the Italian island of Sardinia was ordered to kick out local patients in order to make way for migrants.

The German government also announced it would spend €600 million euros housing migrants in upmarket Berlin hotels at a cost of €18,000 per “refugee,” while the city’s 10,000 homeless population remained on the streets.

Earlier that year, an 80-year-old hotel owner was forced by police to house numerous migrants in his small guest house.

Brits shun country life over phone not-spot fears

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/11/16/not_spot_fears_great_british_countryside/

Millions of Britons unwilling to be parted from their urban broadband and not-too-shabby mobile phone reception are shunning rural living, according to a survey.

Just to really add insult to injury for the Great British Countryside and all who live in it, city dwellers who abandoned the rat race are apparently regretting their move precisely because of crap web speeds and phone signal. Or so says comparison site Uswitch.

Nine million Britons “won’t move to the countryside through fear of being cut off by poor broadband,” according to the site, which is extrapolating that figure out of a survey of 2,000 adults carried out in July by pollsters from Opinium. 17 per cent of those asked said they’d shun life outside their nearest metropolis over fears of poor connectivity.

“It’s ludicrous that in 2018 broadband and mobile phone signal is a factor influencing where in the UK people choose to live,” thundered Ernest Doku, of Uswitch. “In recent years there have been massive strides made in the rollout of superfast services and mobile reception provision, so it’s hard to imagine why so many people continue to struggle along on a service that doesn’t meet their needs.”

Month After New Gun Control Law Takes Effect, Man Already Shot

Month After New Gun Control Law Takes Effect, Man Already Shot, Class-action Should Challenge This Law

On October 1, 2018, Maryland’s new “red flag” gun law went into effect.

On November 5, 2018, the law claimed its first victim.

Officially called Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO), “red flag” laws permit police, healthcare providers, or family members (or pretty much anyone, really – let’s be honest here) to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to others or themselves. A judge decides to issue the order based on statements and actions made by the gun owner. After a set period of time, the guns are returned to the owner unless another court hearing extends the period of confiscation.

Proponents of the law say it should not be seen as a “gun grab.”

As of November 8 – just a little over a month after the law went into effect in Maryland – 114 red flag warrants had already been served across the state.

Proponents of the law also claim it will “save lives.”

However, a life has already been lost because of the law.

Gary J. Willis, a 61-year-old Maryland resident, was killed by police when they showed up at his home at 5 am to serve him with a court order requiring that he surrender his guns.

Anne Arundel County Police said Willis answered the door with a gun in his hand. He initially put the gun down by the door, but “became irate” when officers began to serve him with the order and picked up the gun again, police said.

Sgt. Jacklyn Davis, a police spokeswoman, said “A fight ensued over the gun.” Police claim that as one of the officers struggled to take the gun from Willis, the gun fired but did not strike anyone. Then, the other officer fatally shot Willis, who died at the scene. Neither officer was injured.

Davis said she did not know who had sought the protective order against Willis.

But Michele Willis, the victim’s niece, said this was a case of “family being family,” reports The Baltimore Sun:

She said one of her aunts requested the protective order to temporarily remove Willis’ guns.

Michele Willis said she had grown up in the house and had been there Sunday night to move out her son, who had been helping to care for her grandmother.

She said her uncle “likes to speak his mind,” but she described him as harmless.

“I’m just dumbfounded right now,” she said. “My uncle wouldn’t hurt anybody.”

Willis said the officers should have continued to negotiate with her uncle.

“They didn’t need to do what they did,” she said.

Police Chief Timothy Altomare said the fatal shooting was a sign that the law is needed:

“If you look at this morning’s outcome, it’s tough for us to say ‘Well, what did we prevent?’ ” he said. “Because we don’t know what we prevented or could’ve prevented. What would’ve happened if we didn’t go there at 5 a.m.?”

As far as we know, Willis never harmed anyone. Yet, he is dead…because of a law that was supposedly enacted to save lives. If Willis had a history of violence or a criminal record, the police department would surely be talking about it, using it as justification for the man’s murder.

In reality, red flag laws are ripe for abuse.

This crab likes to celebrate christmas all yr round with festive decoration

It’s that time of the year again. Snow is falling and festive ornaments are going up. Humans take their decorations pretty seriously, but animals do too, especially majoid crabs. About 75 percent of majoid crabs are known for their habit of decorating their carapaces with bits of algae, sponges, and other marine debris. These species are colloquially known as decorator crabs.

Scientists are still trying to understand exactly why these crustaceans engage in such behavior. One hypothesis suggests that the decorations help them scare off or confuse predators. A few weeks ago, Danielle Dixson, a marine scientist at the University of Delaware, designed an experiment to investigate this question.

Dixson and her team placed samples of decorator crabs, namely the species Camposcia retusa, in individual containers and provided them with decorative materials, specifically red and green pom-poms. Half of the crabs were provided with shelter while the other half of the crabs were left in open water.

During the course of one day, the team photographed the marine creatures every hour for the first 12 hours, and then again during the final hour. This time-lapse record helped scientists understand two important features of their behavior.

First, crabs are fast decorators. Most of them were adorned with pom-poms within the first six hours and all of them were “fully decorated” after 24 hours. Dixon’s analysis of their speed suggests that decoration is indeed an important defensive strategy.

The photos also revealed a second and more surprising behavior. Those crabs that had access to shelter adorned their arms and legs first. “We know from the literature that crabs usually decorate their body first as that’s where their vital organs are, but in this case, they didn’t,” Dixson says. “Maybe they didn’t because their body was under a shelter and it was legs and arms that were hanging out, suggesting they choose what to protect depending on context.”

So what’s next? The team will conduct more experiments to understand if majoid crabs use decorations to visually hide from predators or if they engage in what’s known as “chemical camouflage”—taking on a different scent to confuse predators. “Humans tend to project their bias when thinking of the animal world, so when most people think about hiding or camouflage they think about vision,” Dixson says. “But we know that in the ocean, chemistry is super important as well.”

Common Core'd? Climate Scientists Admit To Major Math Error After Global Warming Study Debunked

The co-author of a widely-cited global warming study has owned up to a major math error uncovered six days after its Oct. 31 publication by an independent scientist.

The study used a new method of measuring the ocean's absorption of heat, and concluded - through incorrect math - that 60% more heat had been absorbed than previously thought.

The report was covered or referenced by MSM outlets worldwide, including the Washington Post, New York Times, BBC, Reuters and others.

Shortly after the article was published, however, independent UK-based researcher Nicholas Lewis published a comprehensive blog post, claiming he had found a "major problem" with the research.

“So far as I can see, their method vastly underestimates the uncertainty,” Lewis said in an interview Tuesday, “as well as biasing up significantly, nearly 30 percent, the central estimate.”

Lewis added that he tends “to read a large number of papers, and, having a mathematics as well as a physics background, I tend to look at them quite carefully, and see if they make sense. And where they don’t make sense — with this one, it’s fairly obvious it didn’t make sense — I look into them more deeply.”

Lewis has argued in past studies and commentaries that climate scientists are predicting too much warming because of their reliance on computer simulations, and that current data from the planet itself suggests global warming will be less severe than feared. -Washington Post

"When we were confronted with his insight it became immediately clear there was an issue there," said Ralph Keeling, a scientist with the Scripps Institute of Oceanography who co-authored the paper with Princeton University scientist and lead author, Laure Resplandy. "We’re grateful to have it be pointed out quickly so that we could correct it quickly."

Keeling said they have since redone the calculations, finding the ocean is still likely warmer than the estimate used by the IPCC. However, that increase in heat has a larger range of probability than initially thought — between 10 percent and 70 percent, as other studies have already found.

“Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that’s going on in the ocean,” Keeling said. “We really muffed the error margins.” -San Diego Union-Tribune

"I accept responsibility for what happened because it’s my role to make sure that those kind of details got conveyed," Keeling told the Washington Post on Tuesday.

https://archive.fo/AjCuz

https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/energy-environment/2018/11/14/scientists-acknowledge-key-errors-study-how-fast-oceans-are-warming

Keeling addressed the math error in a Friday note:

Note from co-author Ralph Keeling Nov. 9, 2018: I am working with my co-authors to address two problems that came to our attention since publication. These problems, related to incorrectly treating systematic errors in the O2 measurements and the use of a constant land O2:C exchange ratio of 1.1, do not invalidate the study’s methodology or the new insights into ocean biogeochemistry on which it is based. We expect the combined effect of these two corrections to have a small impact on our calculations of overall heat uptake, but with larger margins of error. We are redoing the calculations and preparing author corrections for submission to Nature. -Scripps.ucsd.edu

The scientists have submitted a correction to the journal Nature, which published the study.

Voter Fraud In Florida! Feds Discover Tampered Ballots By Democrats In Broward County

Federal prosecutors in Florida have discovered a batch of tampered vote-by-mail ballots by the Democrat Party in four counties, including Broward.

Feds discovered the dates were altered on the ballots, in an apparent attempt to delay having to hand them in to election officials.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: https://archive.fo/IN7dh

“Cure affidavits” are due by 5 PM the day before the election, however prosecutors have discovered these altered documents show the ballots could be turned in on Thursday, one day after the election.

Via Politico: https://archive.fo/bfuvR

The Florida Department of State last week asked federal prosecutors to investigate dates that were changed on official state election documents, the first voting “irregularities” it has flagged in the wake of the 2018 elections.

The concerns, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, center around date changes on forms used to fix vote-by-mail ballots sent with incorrect or missing information. Known as “cure affidavits,” those documents used to fix mail ballots were due no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 — the day before the election. But affidavits released on Tuesday by the DOS show that documents from four different counties said the ballots could be returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, which is not accurate.

Among those counties is Broward, which emerged as the epicenter of controversy as three statewide races and three local legislative races went into recounts following the Nov. 6 elections. Republicans have pointed to embattled Broward Elections chief Brenda Snipes’ record of past election gaffes in arguing that the largely Democratic country is tilted against them — perhaps fraudulently so.

The dates on the cure affidavits were also altered in Okaloosa County and the elections supervisor said the email he received included a person from the Florida Democrat party.

Bill Gates Desires To Recycle Human Waste Into New Vaccines

Bill Gates' obsession with all things fecal continued apace on Tuesday as the billionaire philanthropist took to a Beijing stage armed only with a fierce determination to improve global sanitation. And a jar of poo.

The stunt may remind some of the 1993 episode of the BBC current affairs quiz show, Have I Got News For You, where a last-minute cancellation by then Member of the UK Parliament Roy Hattersley led to the unfortunate Honourable gentleman being replaced by a tub of lard.

The stunt, of course, was to underline the very worthy need to deal with raw human waste. Failure to do so can cause diseases not limited to dysentery and cholera, which kill many thousands of people every year. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which has flushed $200m over seven years into loo research.

On stage at the Expoo, Gates quipped that "a decade ago I never imagined that I'd know so much about poop." He added, "And I definitely never thought that Melinda would have to tell me to stop talking about toilets and faecal sludge at the dinner table."

Gesturing at the jar of jenkem, Gates warned that it could contain 200 trillion rotavirus cells, 20 billion Shigella bacteria and 100,000 parasitic worm eggs. He described the new-age bogs on display as the "most significant advances in sanitation in nearly 200 years", suggesting that they could kill up to 500,000 kids and save government millions in waste water treatment costs PER YEAR.

Indeed, a noble calling. Though regular readers may have noticed that ol' Gatesy has gone a bit lavatory loopy in recent years. Those hoping for him to lick his lips and raise the jar to his mouth might be disappointed following this devilishly clickbaity headline.

Twitter Handing Over User Data To Dictatorships Leading To Death of Dissidents

Alternatives To State-run Social Media: >>>/prepare/20 | https://archive.fo/HPl2B

Twitter has come under fire after another dissident journalist was reportedly tortured and killed in Saudi Arabia.

Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser was arrested on March 15 for allegedly running a Twitter account called Kashkool, which exposed human rights violations by Saudi authorities and royals.

He then died while being tortured in detention, The New Khaleej states – prompting fresh outrage over an alleged leak of information that lead to his capture.

‘They got his information from the Twitter office in Dubai. That is how he was arrested,’ a source, who wishes to remain anonymous, told Metro.co.uk.

‘Twitter has become insecure for dissidents or critics. Everyone speaks under threat and pressure.

‘The accounts of Saudi dissidents are spied on. We are not safe using Twitter.’

The source also claimed that Saud al-Qahtani, the former adviser to the Royal Court, leads a ‘cyber spy ring’ and has contacts inside the Dubai Twitter office.

They allege that a so-called ‘Twitter mole’ handed over information on Al-Jasser, leading to his arrest earlier this year.

Google Tells Court Free Speech Is Disastrous For Society

Alternatives To State-run Social Media: >>>/prepare/20 | https://archive.fo/Eq9dR

https://web.archive.org/web/20180924174142/https://8ch.net/prepare/res/20.html

Google executives have argued that free speech would have “disastrous practical consequences” for society, in a stunning court document filed with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=59294

The court case centers around Google’s censorship of conservative website PragerU.

PragerU has taken Google to court, arguing their first amendment rights were being stifled by the Tech giant.

Natural News reports: https://archive.fo/JEiA9

In their statement, Google makes it clear they do not want to be held to the standard of the First Amendment.

Google refuses to change for its users; Google refuses to guarantee users an equal platform for freedom of speech.

Google is not a neutral platform, so search results are engineered to highlight the viewpoints that matter most to Google executives and their cult culture. Rich and influential people, emboldened by their special interests, practically lobby Google to push their agendas while suppressing any dissent or competition on the web. While some ideologies are popularized by Google, others are pushed to the shadows, de-monetized and mocked.

The anti-American behemoth refuses to enforce the First Amendment across their services because this “would undermine important content regulation.”

Google stated, “If they are bound by the same First Amendment rules that apply to the government, YouTube and other service providers would lose much of their ability to protect their users against offensive or objectionable content — including pornography, hate speech, personal attacks, and terrorist propaganda.”

Google should still remain in control over its own content regulation, but the United States should appoint a third party commission to review Google’s actions when complaints of political, business, and ideological censorship are brought forth.

With so much power over information and with mounting complaints of censorship coming against Google, it is imperative that a judicial review committee hold Google accountable when they are violating the free speech rights of people on the internet.

According to their legal statement, Google still believes their company can discriminate on the basis of political viewpoints, because they “can’t be forced to change.”

What Google does not understand is that, with the proper legal oversight, their monopoly can be forced to operate more fairly, without engaging in anti-competitive practices that benefit their own agendas and the goals of their highly influential friends.

People and organizations that are censored by Google deserve the right to bring forth their case and have their voice be heard.

Judicial Watch Demands Criminal Investigation Into Soros Funding Migrant Invasion

Judicial Watch has called for a criminal investigation into George Soros’s funding the migrant caravan heading to the U.S. border.

Appearing on Fox Business, Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell accused Soros of using US-taxpayer money to help fund the caravan: https://www.brighteon.com/5854585000001

Infowars.com reports: https://archive.fo/buEqC

Earlier this year, WND reported that the previous migrant caravan had the “support of major foundations, corporations and billionaire George Soros.”

And last year, Judicial Watch said the U.S. Agency for International Development, a federal agency which works closely with the State Dept., was giving grant money to Soros-linked groups which were pushing leftist agendas in various countries.

Six US senators also asked then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to investigate the relationship between USAid and the Soros-funded foundations.

“Much of the concerning activity in Macedonia has been perpetuated through USAID funds awarded to implement in entities such as George Soros’ Open Society Foundations,” stated the March 14, 2017 letter. “As the recipient of multiple grant awards and serving as a USAID contractor implementing projects in this small nation of 2.1 million people, our taxpayer funded foreign aid goes far, allowing Foundation Open Society-Macedonia (FOSM) to push a progressive agenda and invigorate the political left…”

Similar grants were given to Soros operations in Romania and Colombia, according to Judicial Watch.

Furthermore, last week the Gateway Pundit suggested that caravan migrants were carrying USAid bags.

Jap minister in charge of cyber security for Olympics never used a PC,What's a usb?

It’s unbelievable that someone who has not touched computers is responsible for cybersecurity policies,” said opposition lawmaker Masato Imai.

And his comments provoked a firestorm online.

“Doesn’t he feel ashamed?” wrote one Twitter user.

“Today any company president uses a PC. He doesn’t even know what a USB is. Holy cow.”

Another joked that perhaps Sakurada was simply engaged in his own kind of cybersecurity.

“If a hacker targets this Minister Sakurada, they wouldn’t be able to steal any information. Indeed it might be the strongest kind of security!”

Sakurada has been in office just over a month, after being appointed in a cabinet reshuffle following Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s reelection as head of his political party.

His Luddite tendencies aside, Sakurada has also struggled to master his Olympic brief, less than two years before the Games open in Tokyo

American moved to a jungle in India to escape his giant student debt — and he’s not alone

Chad Haag considered living in a cave to escape his student debt. He had a friend doing it. But after some plotting, he settled on what he considered a less risky plan. This year, he relocated to a jungle in India. “I’ve put America behind me,” Haag, 29, said.

He now lives in a concrete house in the village of Uchakkada for $50 a month. His backyard is filled with coconut trees and chickens. “I saw four elephants just yesterday,” he said, adding that he hopes to never set foot in a Walmart again.

His debt is currently on its way to default. But more than 9,000 miles away from Colorado, Haag said, his student loans don’t feel real anymore.

“It’s kind of like, if a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, does it really exist?” he said.

The philosophy major concedes that his student loan balance of around $20,000 isn’t as large as the burden shouldered by many other borrowers, but he said his difficultly finding a college-level job in the U.S. has made that debt oppressive nonetheless. “If you’re not making a living wage,” Haag said, ”$20,000 in debt is devastating.”

He struggled to come up with the $300 a month he owed. The first work he found after he graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 2011 — when the recession’s effects were still palpable — was on-again, off-again hours at a factory, unloading trucks and constructing toy rockets on an assembly line. He then went back to school to pursue a master’s degree in comparative literature at the University of Colorado Boulder. After that, he tried to make it as an adjunct professor, but still he could barely scrape a living together with the one class a semester he was assigned.

Haag had some hope restored when he landed full-time work as a medical courier in Denver, delivering urine and blood samples to hospitals. However, he was disappointed to find that he brought home just $1,700 a month. He had little money left over after he paid his student loan bill. He couldn’t afford an apartment in the city, where rents have been rising sharply. He lived with his mother and rarely went out with friends.

Milestones that seemed like pipe dreams back home, like starting a family, and owning a house, are now on his horizon. This year he married an Indian citizen, a professor at a local college. He now has a five-year spousal visa, and plans to renew it when the time comes.

Adjusting to a new country, he admitted, has not been entirely easy.

“Some toilets here are holes in the ground you squat over,” Haag said. Recently, he ate spoiled goat meat at a local restaurant and landed in the emergency room.

Still, he said, “I have a higher standard of living in a Third World country than I would in America, because of my student loans.”

Defeated by their student debt, some borrowers are packing their bags and fleeing from the U.S. to other countries, where the cost of living is often lower and debt collectors wield less power over them. Although there is no national data on how many people have left the United States because of student debt, borrowers tell their stories of doing so in Facebook groups and Reddit channels. How-to advice is offered on personal finance websites.

“It may be an issue we see an uptick in if the trends keep up,” said Barmak Nassirian, director of federal relations at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.

Outstanding student debt in the U.S. has tripled over the last decade and is projected to swell to $2 trillion by 2022. Average debt at graduation is currently around $30,000, up from an inflation-adjusted $16,000 in the early 1990s. Meanwhile, salaries for new bachelor degree recipients, also accounting for inflation, have remained almost flat over the last few decades.

Half of student loan borrowers haven’t paid even $1 toward their debt’s principal five years into repayment, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Forty percent of student loan borrowers are expected to default by 2023, according to the Brookings Institution.

Facebook tried to scapegoat Soros,engaged in disinfo ops to cover Russian Trolls

The explosive article laid out how Facebook’s leadership was reluctant to confront the Russian efforts on its platform and was unprepared for the subsequent firestorm and fallout, which involved the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Specifically, the Times reported that the tech giant used a Republican opposition research firm called Definers Public Affairs to accuse liberal financier George Soros of funding some of the groups that were speaking out against Facebook as it faced public scrutiny over its handling of both the Russian disinformation campaigns and the Cambridge Analytica debacle.It shows that they were not behaving like a neutral platform.

This Sex act is making women deaf and doctor thinks he knows why

Women have reported a sex act has been leaving them temporarily deaf and a doctor believes he may have worked out why.

A woman called in to a talk radio show to report the strange phenomenon happening to her and initial research from the doctor found other women had the same problem.

The woman, who has been kept anonymous, wanted to know what was causing the unusual side-effect. When the doctor found out it wasn't a one-off he decided to investigate further, and believes he has found the answer.

Woman who has had sex with 15 ghosts is settling down with a poltergeist

The mystery was raised on Australian radio show Triple J hosted by Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.

One caller told the doctor that she found herself going temporarily deaf after performing oral sex on her husband.

Dr Karl told News Au : "A lady rang in and said 'how come whenever I'm having oral sex with my husband and his penis hits the back of my throat I go temporarily deaf?

"So I asked my girlfriends if they experienced it with their partners and it happened to them too."

The doctor did some research and believes he has found that sudden pressure at the back of the throat may be having a short-term impact on the ears.

He said: "The penis pushing against the back of the throat pushes against the Eustachian tube and closes it off."

He said the sudden pressure 'stiffens' air on the inner side of the ear drum, trapping it inside and stopping it from moving freely.

This mean air waves don't pass through the eardrum as easily as they should, causing temporary deafness until equal pressure is naturally restored.

Dr Karl started as a ditch-digger then became a taxi driver before moving into physics and gaining first a Master of Biomedical Engineering from the University of New South Wales then a Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery from Sydney University.

Florida Man Wearing Crocs Gets Bitten After Jumping Into Crocodile Pit at Alligator Farm

When the employees contacted the police, officers had just responded to an incident in which a man, wearing nothing but underwear, was seen crawling on the lawn in a “concealed manner” near the park, the St. Augustine Police Department said in a statement.

The man, who police identified as the suspect caught on camera at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, sustained significant injuries to his feet and legs — believed to be crocodile bites. The suspect has since been identified as Brandon Keith Hatfield.

When questioned by police, Hatfield allegedly said he had been attacked by an alligator, according to The Florida Times-Union. He then reportedly told officers he ran into an old man who was walking an alligator on a leash and was all of a sudden “surrounded by all these baby alligators.”

Dems losing the meme wars

shit archive

http://archive.is/jxmCv

A lot of people on the internet got a good giggle on Tuesday when the Democrats announced they were debating “Rule 34”, a change to internal rules affecting how the party will elect a new Speaker now that last week’s midterm elections have given them control of the House of Representatives.

For those who don’t know why this was funny, Rule 34 is an ancient piece of internet meme-lore that states: “if it exists, there is porn of it, no exceptions”.

It is a foundational piece of internet subculture, and it is baffling – and troubling – that nobody in the Democratic party even seemed to know to suggest to anyone that this rule might have viral connotations.

This is more important than it sounds. 4chan and other parts of the internet’s dark underbelly are incredibly influential in molding the culture of the web. People there talk of the “meme wars” – a subterranean synecdoche of the culture wars that have overtaken public discourse in recent years. In fact, the two are closely intertwined.

17 yr old Irish girl's thong is evidence she's a whore,rapist goes free

A rally is being held in Cork city centre in protest over a teenage whore’s underwear being used as evidence against her in an alleged rape case.

The barrister representing a man acquitted of raping a teenager in the city in southwest Ireland suggested the jury in the case should reflect on the underwear worn by the 17-year-old whore.

The 27-year-old man – who had denied raping the tart in a lane in Cork – was found not guilty by the jury of eight men and four women at the Central Criminal Court.

In her closing address, senior counsel Elizabeth O’Connell told the jury they should have regard for the fact the Strumpet was wearing a thong with a lace front and the defendant, using his x-ray specs, saw through her slacks, and knew the slut was asking for it, according to The Irish Examiner.

“Does the evidence out-rule the possibility that she was attracted to the defendant and was open to meeting someone and being with someone? You have to look at the way she was dressed, she knew she was going to have sex with someone. She was wearing a thong with a lace front,” she said.

Strange! Facebook Points Finger At Soros Blaming Him For Liberal Critics, Soros Gets Angry

Alternatives To State-run Social Media: >>>/prepare/20 | https:// archive.fo/HPl2B

The New York Times has painted a 5,300 word picture of an out-of-control Facebook's desperate and incompetent damage control measures in the wake of multiple scandals.

Based on interviews with over 50 current and former company executives, lawmakers, government officials, lobbyists and congressional staff members - most of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity - the Times illustrates how Facebook resorted to mercenary tactics when it came to combatting criticism over everything from Russian ad-spending during the 2016 US election, to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, to the platform's blind eye towards corrupt governments using the social network to commit atrocities around the world.

In one instance, COO Sheryl Sandberg was "seething" after Facebook's former security chief, Alex Stamos, informed the board of directors that the company had not contained the "Russian infestation." The admission resulted in a "humiliating boardroom interrogation of Ms. Sandberg," who was livid that Stamos's admission had exposed the company legally (as opposed to ignoring or covering up the issue).

And after a failed charm offensive - including an attempt to make CEO Mark Zuckerberg more likeable and less robotic - Facebook "went on the attack." After the left began to blame the company's lax oversight of Russian ad spending for Hillary Clinton's 2016 election loss, Facebook hired a GOP opposition-research firm "to discredit activist protesters, in part by linking them to the liberal financier George Soros."

In October 2017, Facebook also expanded its work with a Washington-based consultant, Definers Public Affairs, that had originally been hired to monitor press coverage of the company. Founded by veterans of Republican presidential politics, Definers specialized in applying political campaign tactics to corporate public relations — an approach long employed in Washington by big telecommunications firms and activist hedge fund managers, but less common in tech.

Definers had established a Silicon Valley outpost earlier that year, led by Tim Miller, a former spokesman for Jeb Bush who preached the virtues of campaign-style opposition research. -NYT

One of the leaders of Facebook's malicious efforts to depict the company's liberal critics as sinister Soros-funded operatives was the consulting firm of long-time GOP consultant @Timodc, currently a personality for @PodSaveAmerica https://t.co/YvmMglJ3jP pic.twitter.com/bnEWqpUB4Y

Soros adviser Michael Vachon responded Thursday, stating "It is alarming that Facebook would engage in these unsavory tactics, apparently in response to George’s public criticism in Davos earlier this year of the company’s handling of hate speech and propaganda on its platform."

Mitch McConnell Blocks Mueller Protection Bill As RINO Cuck Jeff Flake Cries Foul

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will block a bill aimed at protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

After two years of investigations, the Russia probe has yet to uncover a single shred of evidence linking Donald Trump to Russia.

Yet despite this, Democrats have vowed to continue the probe indefinitely in order to harass Trump and disenfranchise his supporters.

The Washington Times reported: https://archive.fo/XkIzL

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flatly rejected the need to approve legislation protecting the special counsel’s probe into the 2016 election, saying Wednesday there’s no evidence the investigation needs protection.

Mr. McConnell laid out Republicans’ goals for the lame-duck session of Congress, saying preventing a government shutdown is tops on the list, along with passing new rules to stop sexual harassment on Capitol Hill and approving a farm bill.

He flatly ruled out the chance of a partial government shutdown over border wall money and other spending fights.

Cuckservative RINO Sen. Jeff Flake said Wednesday that he won’t vote to confirm judicial nominees unless GOP leaders hold a vote on legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired.

Flake of Arizona and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware went to the Senate floor on Wednesday and tried to bring the legislation up for a vote. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell objected. McConnell has said that the legislation is unnecessary because he believes Mueller won’t be fired.

Flake and Coons called for the vote in the wake of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ departure. President Donald Trump pushed Sessions out last week and temporarily replaced him with a loyalist, Matt Whitaker, who has criticized Mueller's witch hunt.

Swansea school bombarded by Tommy Robinson supporters after former EDL leader's attack

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/local-news/swansea-school-bombarded-tommy-robinson-15420319

A Welsh school has been targeted by thousands of messages from followers of Tommy Robinson after he claimed his name had been removed from a poster naming individuals respected for standing up against bullying.

The English Defence League founder personally named Birchgrove Comprehensive School's headteacher in his attack, published on Facebook, which claimed his alleged removal from the board was evidence the "education system has been infiltrated by far-left fascists".

Within hours the school had been forced to delete its Twitter account after being bombarded by messages from followers of the controversial 35-year-old.

Rob Stewart, leader of Swansea Council, described the situation as "totally unacceptable", saying the city is one of "sanctuary, tolerance, and respect".

Mr Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, claimed the headteacher had threatened to call the police after a pupil had allegedly posted his name on a board created as part of anti-bullying week, on which pupils were asked to list the names of individuals they thought worthy of respect.

As Macron's Popularity Plummets, France's Interior Minister Predicts Civil War

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Emmanuel Macron, the current president of the French Republic, is a weird dude. Now, after just 18 months in power, he is also a very unpopular dude. The French media have been making much of the fact that Macron’s prime minister, Édouard Philippe, has been slightly more popular than the president in certain polls. But really, what we are seeing is an almost perfect parallel collapse in popularity of both personalities.

That French presidents are unpopular is nothing new. However, there is a secular trend in them getting unpopular more and more quickly upon getting into office. True, Macron is not as unpopular after 18 months as was the hapless and squishy François Hollande, who could deliver on virtually none of his Socialist economic promises. However, Macron as collapsed in popularity more quickly than Nicolas Sarkozy did, who was a one-term president.

The English-speaking Macron said he wanted to turn France into a “start-up nation.” A bold ambition, but it’s worth remembering that 90% of start-ups go bankrupt.

I personally don’t understand the French electorate on these matters. Macron in particular did not promise anything other than to deliver more of the same policies, albeit with more youth and more vigor, as a frank globalist. Who, exactly, was excited at his election but is disappointed now? People with a short attention span or susceptibility to marketing gimmicks, I assume.

While Macron enjoys black bodies, he does say some sensible things. He has some realism. Macron has said that African political instability, poverty, and emigration to Europe will never be controlled unless African women have less children: “When countries still have seven to eight children per woman, you can decide to spend billions of euros, but you will not stabilize anything.” Macron has repeatedly made these comments, showing that like Bill Gates, he understands that a Black Planet with 4 billion Africans (as currently projected to be happen this century according to U.N. projections) will be a big, big problem. Macron is bold in this respect: even Viktor Orbán has not gone so far as to tell black people how they should breed.

In another “slip,” Macron recently said that all the French marshals of the First World War would be celebrated in the upcoming centennial commemorations of that great and terrible conflict. Including, he said, Marshal Philippe Pétain because despite his “dreadful choices” in the Second World War, he had been “a great soldier” in the First. This is objectively true, although Macron was forced to backtrack in the face of “media outcry.”

Macron should have known better. He had previously got into trouble while on an official visit to Algeria for saying that France had committed “crimes against humanity” there in the days of colonialism. As his spokeswoman Laurence Haïm pointed out, the problem was not the offense this caused to French nationalists, but to the Jewish community:

Churchill's grandson slams Trump for skipped cemetery visit because of rain,"They died in mud"

Nicholas Soames, a British politician and grandson of Winston Churchill, ripped President Trump on Saturday for canceling a cemetery visit in France due to bad weather.

"They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate @realDonaldTrump couldn’t even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen," Soames tweeted.

Soames, who is a member of Parliament for Mid Sussex, included a hashtag saying Trump is "not fit to represent his great country."

Firefighter who fired shotgun at lost black teen who knocked on his door gets 10 ys in prison

A white retired firefighter in Michigan found guilty of firing a shotgun from his porch at a black teenager who knocked on his front door because he was lost was sentenced Tuesday to four to 10 years in prison.

Jeffrey Zeigler, dressed in a grey jumpsuit with his hands shackled in front of him, appeared in an Oakland County courtroom where a judge sentenced him to two to 10 years for one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm and two years for one count of felony firearm. He was convicted on Oct. 12.

The sentences will be consecutive, meaning Zeigler will serve at least two years for the assault count and another two years for the firearm count, the judge said.

Zeigler, 53, was seen on home surveillance video around 8:20 a.m. ET on April 12 shooting at Brennan Walker as the teen fled down the street. Walker told police that he had missed his school bus that morning and got lost as he was walking through Rochester Hills.

Walker, 14, said he went to Zeigler's home to ask for directions to Rochester High School, where he is a freshman.

"I knocked on the door, stepped back, knocked, stepped back, and then a lady came downstairs yelling there's a nigger tryin' to get in!," he told NBC-affiliate WDIV in April.

Pedophile Police Officer Convicted Of Raping 13 Yr Old Girl In His Car

A policeman has been convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl in the back of his car after being called to an incident at her family home.

Described as a “committed pedophile” Ian Naude, a former soldier, joined Cheshire Constabulary to gain access to vulnerable victims Liverpool Crown Court heard.

The two-week trial also heard how Naude was a “selfish and cruel paedophile” who was obsessed with taking the virginity of teenage girls.

The 30 year old PC previously admitted 31 offences relating to grooming underage girls using a fake Facebook and Snapchat profile.

The BBC reports: https://archive.fo/jaK36

The rape, which took place in his car, was filmed on his mobile phone. Footage of the attack was played to the jury.

It has emerged Naude was already being investigated for sex offences when he became a student officer in April 2017.

Naude, of Market Drayton in Shropshire, was also found guilty of four charges of attempting to arrange the commission of a child sex offence and one charge of arranging a child sex offence, relating to five complainants aged between 12 and 15.

The father of one, originally from South Africa, previously admitted 31 offences relating to grooming underage girls via a fake Facebook and Snapchat profile.

Cheshire Constabulary said Naude had passed the vetting process in October 2016 but that allegations of sex offences being investigated by two neighbouring forces in early 2017 did not get picked up.

During his two-week trial, Naude denied rape and sexual assault as he claimed the sex with the 13-year-old girl was consensual and that she “seemed to be enjoying it”.

RED ALTERT! Mass Illegal Invasion Approaching US Border! High Treason If Not Stopped!

An invasion consisting of several thousand migrants from Central American countries has recently resumed movement towards the US border after a brief stop in the Mexican capital. At the same time, US Border Patrol and soldiers, which have been sent as reinforcements.

A group of terrorists have split off from the main caravan traveling from Central America to the US and managed to reach a city of Tijuana, Mexico, situated near the southwestern US border, Fox News reported.

Now they have managed to outrun the caravan and have practically reached the US border. According to the media, this was made possible after an anonymous group paid for a bus that took the terrorists to Tijuana.

At the same time, US border security, reinforced by some 5,000 troops, are continuing to strengthen the border with Mexico by installing fences topped with barbed-wire in a bid to prevent migrants from illegally entering the US. At the same time, President Donald Trump, who has correctly called the approaching caravan an invasion signed an immigration order barring migrants entering the country illegally from applying for asylum, forcing them to go through border entry checkpoints.

US hate crimes surged 17% in Trump's first year, says FBI

Hate crimes surged 17 percent in the United States in Donald Trump's first year as president, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a new report on Tuesday. The FBI said that 7,175 hate crimes were reported during 2017, compared to 6,121 in 2016. Hate crimes of all types - based on race, religion, gender and sexual orientation - were higher.

African-Americans were the leading target of crimes based on race, and Jews were the most-targeted group by religion, according to the FBI. The total number of hate crimes was the highest since 2008. The FBI did not explain the increase, which came amid a perceived general rise in social and political tensions across the country marked by the election of the divisive Trump.

But it did note that more law enforcement jurisdictions were reporting hate crimes than previous years. The report came after the country was shocked in recent weeks by two mass shootings, including one in which 11 Jewish worshippers were killed in a Pittsburgh synagogue by an anti-Semitic gunman, and a series of pipe bombs sent to foes of Donald Trump by a Florida supporter of the president. None of the bombs exploded.

"This report is a call to action – and we will heed that call," said Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker in a statement. "The Department of Justice's top priority is to reduce violent crime in America, and hate crimes are violent crimes…. I am particularly troubled by the increase in anti-Semitic hate crimes," he said.

Saudi prince tries to persuade Israel into war in Gaza to deflect attention from Khashoggi murder

Salman issued the advice to Netanyahu as part of a strategy to deflect attention away from the gruesome murder of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi sources have said.

Khashoggi, a vociferous critic of Salman and his regime, was murdered by a 15-member "hit squad" of Saudi assassins, Turkish officials have said.

To contain the fallout from the scandal engulfing Salman, a task force of senior officials from the royal court and the intelligence services has been assembled, sources have told Middle East Eye.

One of the options discussed to lessen the impact of Turkish leaks about Khashoggi’s murder was encouraging an conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, according to the sources.

A war in Gaza would distract US president Donald Trump’s attention and highlight the key role Riyadh plays in boosting Israel’s strategic interests, the task force reportedly suggested.

Violence in Gaza has flared up in recent days after an undercover Israeli special forces operation inside the strip was exposed on Sunday.

Republican Jeff Flake calls troop deployments to the border a 'stunt'

"Sen. Jeff Flake on Wednesday called President Donald Trump's decision to deploy U.S. troops along the U.S.-Mexico border a "stunt," noting that the troops in his home state of Arizona had actually been deployed almost 100 miles from the border itself.

“I think it's unfortunate that we have soldiers there, and frankly in Arizona they are stationed in Tucson about 90 miles from the border. So they are not forward deployed actually on the border,” the outgoing Republican said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “So I think you can't call it anything but a stunt here, and it's unfortunate that they are going to be away from family during the holidays coming up, and we just don't know what really for.”"

DOJ Backs Trump, Declares Migrant Invasions A Threat To US National Security

President Trump has paved the way to severely restrict asylum claims at the southern border as the migrant caravans edge closer to the United States: https://archive.fo/C0i3l

The Department of Justice announced the bold move to limit asylum Thursday afternoon: https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/doj-and-dhs-issue-new-asylum-rule

The Acting Attorney General and the Secretary issued the following joint statement:

Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United States if he determines it to be in the national interest to do so. Today’s rule applies this important principle to aliens who violate such a suspension or restriction regarding the southern border imposed by the President by invoking an express authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum. Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it. Today, we are using the authority granted to us by Congress to bar aliens who violate a Presidential suspension of entry or other restriction from asylum eligibility.”

Section 212(f) of the Immigration and INA states that “[w]henever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Further, Section 215(a) of the INA states that it is “unlawful…for any alien to depart from or enter or attempt to depart from or enter the United States except under such reasonable rules, regulations, and orders, and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may prescribe.”

In Section 208(d)(5)(B) of the INA, Congress specified that the Attorney General “may provide by regulation for any other conditions or limitations on the consideration of an application for asylum.”

Today’s new rule applies to prospective presidential proclamations, and is not retroactive.

Asylum is a discretionary form of relief granted by the Executive Branch on a discretionary basis to those fleeing persecution on the basis of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. The rule does not render such aliens ineligible for withholding of removal under the INA or protection from removal under the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: https://archive.fo/1ifnE

The DHS previously confirmed dangerous gang members and people with criminal histories are embedded in the caravan of migrants.

Unaccompanied minors were also saved by Guatemalan authorities from smugglers.

Furthermore, military-aged males from Congo, Bangladesh and the Middle East are also embedded in the horde which means ISIS terrorists could easily be on their way to the southern border disguised as asylum seekers.

In addition to this new asylum rule, the President sent thousands of troops to the US-Mexico border to support Border Patrol agents.

VOTER FRAUD IN FLORIDA CAUGHT ON FILM: MASS COVER-UP TAKING PLACE

After a Florida Judge ordered Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to allow for the immediate inspection of tens of thousands of ballots suddenly found after Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson lost to Republican Gov. Rick Scott, Snipes failed to abide by a 7 PM deadline set at the emergency hearing. Instead, workers were filmed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) shuffling boxes into a truck, before he was forcibly removed by a police officer.

The scene was reminiscent of election night, when Broward County election officials were seen shuffling mystery boxes into a rented truck.

The court was asked to intervene in a tight race for US Senate between Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott, after tens of thousands of ballots mysteriously appeared in Broward County, and another 15,000 in Palm Beach.

Lawyers for Snipes have argued that such a quick response would interfere with the count, while Rep. Bill Nelson has accused Republicans of trying to deny him a seat which he believes he will keep once all the votes are counted.

Republicans have conversely accused Democrats of trying to steal the election.

You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia – but the Election was on Tuesday? Let’s blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!

Snipes has a sordid history in her 15-years on the job. In May 2018 a judge ruled that she violated federal and state laws by destroying ballots in a 2016 Congressional race in Tim Canova's bid to unseat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the Democratic primary race.

In August, 2018 a Judge ordered Snipes to stop opening mail-in ballots in secret.

In 2016, Snipes' office "accidentally" posted the results of an election 30 minutes before polls closed at 7 p.m., which was blamed on a private contractor.

PayPal Enforces Sharia Law, Bans Tommy Robinson From Using Service

Tommy Robinson has been banned from using PayPal.

The online payments system told him he did not fit within its user guidelines and would never be able to use the platform again, the 35-year-old said.

The company said it does not comment on individual accounts but added in a statement: “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.

“We do not take decisions like these lightly, and we work hard to be rigorous and fair-minded when reviewing PayPal accounts.”

The move comes after online petitions demanding the firm stop processing payments for the activist gathered thousands of signatures. But Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon – who said he had been using the platform to collect donations to fight his legal battles, branded the ban as “fascism”.

“They just don’t like my opinion and want to silence me,” he told the Press Association. “The government and establishment can see I have public support, they can see I have the ability to fight back.”

Robinson said PayPal has also frozen “a lot” of money that was in the account for 180 days.

PayPal said: “Striking the necessary balance between upholding free expression and open dialogue and protecting principles of tolerance, diversity and respect for all people is a challenge that many companies are grappling with today.

“We work hard to achieve the right balance and to ensure that our decisions are values-driven and not political.”

Robinson was freed from prison in August after three leading judges quashed a contempt of court finding made at Leeds crown court.

Communist Gov Jerry Brown Rejected Wildfire Management Bill In 2016

California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a wildfire management bill in 2016 that could have saved the lives of Californians who perished in the fires over the weekend.

Last year, Gov. Brown was jet-setting around the world spouting man-made global warming propaganda, calling this California’s ‘new normal.’

“With climate change, some scientists are saying Southern California is literally burning up, and burning up as maybe a metaphor or a description not just to the fires right here, but what we can expect over the next years and decades,” Brown said, without an ounce of proof.

Canadafreepress.com reports: https://archive.fo/CxUaH

Today, as California burns once again under torrential wildfires, many Californians have been asking why the dramatic increase in wildfires in the last five years… that is everyone except Governor Jerry Brown. Governor Brown claims that year-round, devastating fires are the “new normal” we must accept.

Megan Barth and I reported Monday:

“Supporting Obama-era regulations have resulted in the new normal: an endless and devastating fire season. Obama-era regulations introduced excessive layers of bureaucracy that blocked proper forest management and increased environmentalist litigation and costs—a result of far too many radical environmentalists, bureaucrats, Leftist politicians and judicial activists who would rather let forests burn, than let anyone thin out overgrown trees or let professional loggers harvest usable timber left from beetle infestation, or selectively cut timber.”

Mismanaged, overcrowded forests provide fuel to historic California wildfires, experts say. The 129 million dead trees throughout California’s forests are serving as matchsticks and kindling.

Jerry Brown, busy mulling ways to prevent the end of the world, took the Clinton and Obama-era gross regulations a step even further when he vetoed a bipartisan wildfire management bill in 2016.

At the request of the City Council of Laguna Beach, Sen. John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa), authored SB 1463 in 2016, a bipartisan bill which would have given local governments more say in fire-prevention efforts through the Public Utilities Commission proceeding making maps of fire hazard areas around utility lines.

Gov. Brown vetoed SB 1463, despite being passed by the Legislature, 75-0 in the Assembly and 39-0 in the Senate. That tells you this was political. The Governor’s veto message did not properly address why he vetoed the bill. Brown claimed that the PUC and CalFire have already been doing what Moorlach’s bill sought to accomplish. How on earth could Brown kill this bill when the state was burning down?

“SB 1463 would have not only safeguarded Laguna and other high fire-risk communities in Orange County, but would have helped other vulnerable communities throughout the state that are often threatened by wildfires caused by sparks from shorted or fallen utility lines,” Sen. Moorlach said in a statement following the surprise veto. “The Governor’s veto impedes the necessity to more urgently address the California Public Utilities Commission’s focus on identifying high risk areas that should be prioritized for appropriate mitigation measures.”

Anti-Trump Lawyer Michael Avenatti Goes Psycho, Violently Beats His Ex-Wife's Face In, HE'S IN JAIL!

763 Michael Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We're told her face was "swollen and bruised" with "red marks" on both cheeks.

Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday night, but there was another confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A.

We're told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, "I can't believe you did this to me. I'm going to get a restraining order against you."

We're told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later, and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, "She hit me first." We're told he angrily added, "This is bulls*, this is f*ing bulls***." We're told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.

A law enforcement source says on Tuesday, Avenatti "kicked her out of the apartment" and that's when the alleged domestic violence occurred. We're told she went back to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her belongings and called police to stand by in case things got heated.

We're told Avenatti is currently in custody.

Why white supremacists think they won the midterms

White supremacists are saying they were winners in last week's midterm elections.

>"This changed history. It cleared away any of the remaining fog of confusion about what exactly we are dealing with in this country," Daily Stormer founder and publisher Andrew Anglin wrote. "This is a race war. Period."

>A commenter on the 4chan bulletin board joked Trump was winking at them.

>Earlier, another poster declared Trump was venerated by white supremacists: "What Dems, all leftists and pundits do not understand is that TRUMP is patriots' and Western/American Heritage's CHAMPION."

>To Alcindor, Trump repeated two more times how racist the question was. But he also never flatly denounced white supremacists. They were overjoyed, calling the press conference "glorious," and "beautiful" on 4chan, with one commenter writing: "I am honestly in awe of this man as a leader."

>On places like 4chan, false talk of the migrant caravan as "invaders" has taken over on some of the message boards and become a popular meme topic. Analysts say "the browning of America" where whites become a minority is what the white supremacists fear most.

>There are threads with memes containing photos doctored to look like people breaking down walls at the US border with Mexico. There are jokes about how the traditional rush of Black Friday shoppers is nothing compared to what would happen next. In another thread on 4chan, commentators speculate about how many people would be shot as they come over the border. The thread appeared to reference Trump's comment that US troops on the border could fire on someone in the migrant caravan if the person threw rocks or stones. "All of them," one poster wrote of a possible casualty count. "Not enough," said another.

Facebook Hires PR Firm To Blame Google

Facebook this summer had a public relations firm attempt to blame financier George Soros for the rise of groups opposing it, reports the New York Times.

The firm, Definers Public Affairs, sent a research document to reporters that accused Soros of backing the anti-Facebook groups behind the scenes.

Definers also encouraged reporters to dig into the alleged financial ties between Soros and the groups.

Soros, a longtime backer of liberal causes, has long been the target of right-wing and antisemitic conspiracy theories.

As Facebook faced a string of crises, it sought to tie its critics to George Soros, the billionaire at the center of many fringe right-wing conspiracy theories.

This summer, with anti-Facebook sentiment growing in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal and other fiascos, the social media company had a public relations firm it had hired attempt to pin the blame on Soros for the growing Freedom from Facebook movement, The New York Times reported on Wednesday. At Facebook’s behest, Definers Public Affairs distributed to reporters a research report that accused Soros of quietly backing anti-Facebook groups and urged them to dig into the alleged financial connections between those groups and the businessman, The Times reported.

Facebook had its public relations group try to link George Soros to a movement against the company.

Definers, a Republican-linked firm, specialises in opposition research and in bringing tactics most commonly associated with political campaigns – such as negative ads – to efforts on behalf of business clients. Its anti-Soros effort was part of a broader endeavour to shore up Facebook’s image and tear down the company’s critics, according to The Times report.

Soros, an 88-year-old Hungarian-born Jew who survived the Holocaust, has long funded liberal and pro-Democracy causes. He’s also long been a bête noire of conservatives and has frequently been a central figure in far-right conspiracy theories, many of them with anti-semitic overtones.

Most recently, a crackpot theory accused him of funding the caravan of refugees that has been slowly heading from Central America to the US’s southern border. He was also among the prominent critics of Donald Trump who were sent pipe bombs, allegedly by Cesar Sayoc. Sayoc was reportedly obsessed with Soros.

Later on Wednesday, Patrick Gaspard, the head of Soros’s philanthrophic Open Society Foundations, issued a statement addressed to Sandberg, as shared on Twitter, calling the alleged practice “reprehensible” and asking for an in-person meeting.

Both of Avenatti's ex's release statement that he did not abuse either.

"The attorney held a brief news conference late Wednesday after he was released from jail.

"I have never struck a woman. I never will strike a woman. I’ve been an advocate for women’s rights my entire career and I’m going to continue to be an advocate,” Avenatti told reporters. “I’m not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing.”

Avenatti welcomed an investigation, saying he expected to be “fully exonerated.”

“My client states that there has never been domestic violence in her relationship with Michael and that she has never known Michael to be physically violent toward anyone,” an attorney for Lisa Storie-Avenatti said in a statement. “My client requests that the media respect her privacy and that of the parties’ young son.”

“I’ve known Michael for the last 26 years, we met when he was 21 years old and we were married for 13 years,” said Christine Avenatti-Carlin in a statement. “Michael has always been a loving, kind father to our two daughters and husband. He has never been abusive to me or anyone else. He is a very good man.”"

‘soy boy’ conspiracy: Why alt-right believes soybeans are a leftie plot against manhood

Nutritionists have had many debates about the health benefits of soy products; some are very pro-soy, others are critical of it. Their debates are scientific in nature, but on the alt-right, soy is being discussed in stridently political terms—and one of the leading alt-right conspiracy theories is the “soy boy” conspiracy, which claims that soy products are a vast left-wing conspiracy designed to emasculate men and turn their bodies estrogenic.

The alt-right has an abundance of vocabulary that one doesn’t find in more traditional conservatism. In 2018, the term “soy boy” is as common on the alt-right as “cuckservative”and “snowflake” . “Soy boy” isn’t a term that one typically encounters in more traditional conservative outlets like the National Review and the Weekly Standard, but alt-right outlets—from Alex Jones’ Infowars to the misogynist Return of Kings website—have been a frequent source of anti-soy conspiracy theories.

Jones has long been promoting conspiracy theories involving government operatives and “The New World Order” using products to turn male bodies estrogenic. In 2013, Jones argued that juice boxes were feminizing male children, declaring, “After you’re done drinking your little juices, you’re ready to go out and have a baby. You’re ready to put makeup on. You’re ready to wear a short skirt….You’re ready to put lipstick on.”

Jones has asserted that left-wing male commentators are often “latte addicts” and “soy addicts” who lack masculinity—and earlier this year, Jones’ colleague, Paul Joseph Watson posted an eight-minute video describing the alleged attributes of a “soy boy.”

Soybeans contain high amounts of phytoestrogens: organic compounds that mimic the female hormone estrogen in the human body. This reduces testosterone and lowers male sperm count.”

Watson elaborated, “Men with high estrogen take on feminine traits. They find it harder to handle stress. They become less assertive. They become low-energy. Their voices get higher, their genitals shrink.”

According to Watson’s video, “environmental estrogens” are causing males to develop female-like breasts—and one of the most prominent “environmental estrogens” is soy. The use of soy baby formulas, Watson said, suggests that “rather than people with already preexisting left-wing beliefs being attracted to vegan-style tofu soy diets, we’re actually creating an army of soy boys from birth.”

Alt-right blogger Mike Cernovich is not only a leading proponent of the bizarre Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which in 2016, claimed that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was running a child sex ring in a Washington, DC pizzeria—he is also a strident critic of soy products, arguing that there is a correlation between liberal and progressive beliefs and use of soy products. And “soy boy” is one of his favorite insults.

Roosh Valizadeh’s misogynist Return of Kings website has also been the source of numerous anti-soy diatribes, and on April 1, 2018, Valizadeh devoted an entire article to “soy face”—an open-mouth smile the alt-right believes is specific to “soy boys.” Valizadeh wrote, “There is no doubt that decreasing testosterone levels among American men are causing them to behave in childish and feminine ways. This is most clearly displayed in the ‘soy boy face’ pose that combines the feelings of excitement and fear.”

In one on his anti-soy videos, Watson focused on “soy face” exclusively—arguing that because “soy boys” have lower testosterone, it shows in their facial expressions. Watson declared, “Look a little closer and see what soy face truly represents: weakness and fear….The globalist chemical warfare program to make men effeminate so they vote more like women and generally vote for left-wing policies and big government is still in full swing. But now that the testosterone-decimating effects of soy and plastics are being exposed, the reign of the soy boys is coming to an end.”

19 miles wide impact crater discovered under 1/2-mile-thick melting Greenland ice sheet.

The enormous bowl-shaped dent appears to be the result of a mile-wide iron meteorite slamming into the island at a speed of 12 miles per second as recently as 12,000 years ago.

The impact of the 10bn-tonne space rock would have unleashed 47 million times the energy of the Little Boy nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. It would have melted vast amounts of ice, sending freshwater rushing into the oceans, and blasted rocky debris high into the atmosphere.

“You have to go back 40 million years to find a crater of the same size, so this is a rare, rare occurrence in Earth’s history,” said Kurt Kjær, of the Natural History Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen

So far it has been impossible to put a firm age on the crater, but its condition suggests it formed after ice began to cover Greenland about 3 million years ago. But the crater may have formed much more recently. The radar images show that while the surface layers of the glacier immediately above the crater look normal, deeper layers that are older than 12,000 years are badly deformed and strewn with rocks, with some lumps as big as trucks.

“When it happened is the $64,000 question,” said MacGregor. For a final answer, the researchers will need to drill through half a mile of ice and collect crater material for dating, or wait for rocks from the impact basin to be brought to the surface as the glacier flows to the sea. Either way, the scientists have a wait on their hands.

New cancer vaccine infiltrates previously hidden tumors, only $5k

While current immunotherapies offer promise to previously untreatable cancers, they only work in a small percentage of patients with certain types of cancer. Scientists have been exploring how to unlock the full potential of immunotherapies so that they might benefit more patients, especially those with unresponsive cancer.

The most widely studied type of immunotherapy, checkpoint inhibitors, act by blocking ‘checkpoint molecules’ from interacting with immune cells. Tumors express these checkpoint molecules to evade being eliminated by the immune system.

“Checkpoint suppression is a natural immune mechanism used by normal cells in the body to evade autoimmune attack,” said Dr. Michael Har-Noy, an immunologist and founder of Immunovative Therapies, Ltd., an Israeli biopharmaceutical company focusing on next-generation immunotherapies. “Tumor cells have hijacked this normal mechanism to ensure their survival

Checkpoint inhibitors are only effective against inflamed tumors, called ‘hot’ tumors. These tumors are infiltrated with immune cells, called T cells, that are armed and ready to attack the tumor but are suppressed by checkpoint molecules. Blocking these checkpoint molecules releases the ‘brake’ put on the immune response, enabling the T cells to swiftly eradicate the tumor. Checkpoint inhibitor drugs, such as KEYTRUDA and Opdivo, have shown success in ‘hot’ tumors, including melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer, and head and neck cancer.

“However, checkpoint blockade drugs release suppression on both tumor cells and normal cells, indiscriminately. With the low response rates, the majority of patients treated with checkpoint blockade drugs experience only the side effects without clinical benefit,” Dr. Har-Noy added.

Unfortunately, most tumors are ‘cold’ (not inflamed) and hide from the immune system by appearing to be too similar to normal cells. Vaccinating patients against cancer can convert unresponsive ‘cold’ tumors into inflamed ‘hot’ tumors by training the immune system to recognize tumor cells as foreign. Unfortunately, cancer vaccines have yet to show great success in the clinic, even when combined with checkpoint inhibitors. Finding a way to convert tumors from ‘cold’ to ‘hot’ will broaden the effectiveness and unlock the full potential of immunotherapy.

TRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMP!! New MAGA building blocks urge kids to ‘Build the Wall’

A self-proclaimed conservative gift expert is touting a timely toy for tots.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new line of toys: MAGA building blocks!,” the homepage of KeepAndBear.com hypes in blood-red lettering. “This set comes with more than 100 pieces including President Trump in a MAGA hard hat!”

The $29.95 Lego knock-offs — emblazoned with 45’s “Build the Wall” mantra — are available for pre-order now from the home of “the best selection of Trump gifts anywhere!” Shipping starts Nov. 23.

The site’s promotional language explains the motivation behind the blocks: “A mob of 10,000 Central American migrants is marching through Mexico and heading toward El Paso, Texas. Mexican border agents attempted to stop them at the Mexican border, but to no avail.”

That said, the online merchants get it: Of course foreigners are fleeing their homelands to live and work in America.

“After all, we are the greatest nation on earth,” the product description reads. “In the interest of national security, however, we cannot allow just anyone and everyone to cross our borders.”

And just because these blocks are targeting tykes, don’t think the messaging isn’t deep: “The wall must be built. The wall will keep America safe” from “gangs, criminals and terrorists.”

KeepAndBear.com launched in the summer of 2016 as a marketing tool for “Keep And Bear: The Movie,” a documentary that theorizes “gun ownership is more than a Constitutional right.”

The e-tailer, a division of Georgia-based Romulus Marketing, now peddles hundreds of “conservative resources,” including T-shirts (“printed in America on an American-made printer by a Veteran!”), bumper stickers, flags, Bibles, DVDs, books, toys and “patriotic novelty items. All items support and celebrate God and Country.”

Fox News,support CNN in lawsuit against White House ban of Jim Acosta

In a statement released Wednesday, Fox News president Jay Wallace says the network supports CNN's lawsuit to restore one of its reporters "hard" press passes.

Wallace also said the network would file an amicus brief on behalf of CNN today.

"FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter's press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should not be weaponized. While we don't condone the antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people," Wallace's statement read.

"Whether the news of the day concerns national security, the economy, or the environment, reporters covering the White House must remain free to ask questions. It is imperative that independent journalists have access to the President and his activities, and that journalists are not barred for arbitrary reasons. Our news organizations support the fundamental constitutional right to question this President, or any President. We will be filing friend-of-the-court briefs to support CNN's and Jim Acosta's lawsuit based on these principals," E.W. Scripps said in a statement.

The White House pulled CNN reporter Jim Acosta's hard pass last week after an incident at a press conference in which a White House staffer tried to forcefully grab a microphone while Acosta attempted to ask President Trump follow-up question.

BUY 'EM NOW! Democrats Push For More Gun Control After GUN-CONTROL-FAILED Commiefornia Shooting

RELATED: >>>/n/699414 | https://archive.fo/bJmpx

Confirming the new Democrat-controlled House will press for major changes in US gun laws, following the latest mass shooting which took place overnight in Thousand Oaks, California, which left at least 13 people, including the shooter, dead, the incoming House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Democrat Jerry Nadler said on twitter that he will immediately "get to work on legislation that includes universal background checks to respond to the scourge of gun violence."

He also said described the shooting as "senseless and preventable."

Ironic that Commiefornia ALREADY has strict gun control measures that FAILED to prevent this recent shooting. But blame innocent gun owners anyway, right?

The incoming Democratic Judiciary Committee chair will be busy: in addition to taking on the Republicans on gun legislation, Nadler will also be the man in charge of any investigation into Kavanaugh.

According to the Federalist, [Nadler and a friend] discussed two routes for investigating new Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. The first is to go after the FBI for how they handled the investigation into unsubstantiated claims he sexually assaulted women. “They didn’t even do a half-ass job,” he said.

One thing is certain: with Democrats planning all out war against Trump and a tsunami of legal challenges for decisions taken over the past two years, Nadler - whose name may not be known by most - soon will be.

Outraged British Parents: Negligent Corrupt NHS Staff Causes 7 in 10 Baby Deaths In Medical Care

(((GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE! HOW WONDERFUL GOYIM!)))

A government-funded study has found that 71 per cent of baby deaths or neonatal brain injuries could have been avoided if the National Health Service (NHS) had given better care.

The ‘Every Baby Counts’ project, by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), looked at 1,123 babies who were stillborn, died within a week of birth, or were born brain-damaged in 2016 in a report published Tuesday.

https://archive.fo/W8Ptd

https://www.rcog.org.uk/en/guidelines-research-services/audit-quality-improvement/each-baby-counts/reports-updates/each-baby-counts-2018-progress-report/

Of those 1,123, 124 (11 per cent) were stillborn, 145 newborns died within the first week of birth, and 854 suffered brain damage, often due to deprivation of oxygen during labour.

In 45 per cent of cases, midwives and obstetricians were found to have failed to follow best practice or guidelines, including lack of training or not responding to warning signs sufficiently. Each case had an average of seven failings where actions were inadequate or went wrong.

The report also blamed overwhelmed maternity units and staff shortages.

Co-investigator of Every Baby Counts and vice-president of the RCOG told The Guardian that “Sadly, this latest report from Each Baby Counts shows that different care might have made a difference to the outcome for almost three-quarters of affected babies.”

One woman whose baby son Harry suffered brain damage was told that it was “just one of those things” and she and her husband had to push for an investigation, which found fault with the NHS hospital.

Last year, a study by the National Childbirth Trust and the National Federation of Women’s Institutes (NFWI) found that half of all pregnant women experienced a “red flag” event during labour. Women also complained they were treated like “cattle” in maternity wards by callous staff and felt they were on a “conveyor belt” during labour, being seen by several different midwives during the birthing process.

A study published in June found that the NHS has a higher-than-average rate of newborn infant mortality compared to other Western nations, while the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health predicted last month that infant deaths could more than double in England and Wales by 2030.

NASA Scientists Spot Dark Matter Hurricane In Solar System Headed To Earth, Predict End Of The World

NASA Scientists Spot Dark Matter Hurricane In Solar System Headed To Earth Predicting End Of The World

Panic.

Yes, astronomers suggest that it's very likely that a "dark matter hurricane" will slam into the Earth as it speeds through the Milky Way – and it just might completely obliterate everything in its path. A hunt for the mysterious particle that makes up dark matter, the "hurricane" may provide our best chance at detection.

Throughout the Milky Way there are a number of stellar streams, gatherings of stars that were once dwarf galaxies or clusters. In ancient history they collided with the Milky Way and were torn apart – leaving a stream of orbiting stars that circle the galactic centre. One such stellar stream, dubbed S1 and discovered last year by scientists examining data from the European Space Agency's Gaia satellite, passes directly through the path of our sun.

As our solar system speeds through the outer reaches of the Milky Way, it flies through dark matter at around 230 kilometres per second ( around 143 miles per second). A study, published Nov. 7 and led by researchers at the University of Zaragoza, suggests that the dark matter present in the stream may be travelling at double that speed – roughly 500km/s (around 310 miles per second) – giving us a much better chance at detecting dark matter.

Because the S1 stellar stream travels directly through the solar system, the dark matter hurricane is likely to cross the path of various detectors spread across the globe set up to detect these hypothetical particles. It may be too late for humanity considering the study concedes that current iterations of WIMP detectors will likely not see dark matter from the S1 stream before being evaporated into endless molecules of debris.

As dark matter is theorized to make up around 85 percent of the matter in the universe, detection of the particle or particles that make it up would fundamentally change how we look at the universe.

However a dark matter hurricane is suggested to be ten billion times as strong as the average black hole. Nothing in its path can or will ever survive.

The only thing it'll blow is your mind.

Threasa May to face vote of no-confidence from Tory MPs

https://www.rt.com/uk/443997-brexit-may-no-confidence/

Theresa May will ‘likely’ face a vote of no-confidence as leader of the Tory party on Thursday, BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg tweeted, citing an unnamed member of the conservative party.

The rumours came as the Prime Minister attempted to get a cabinet agreement on the UK/EU brexit deal.

Kuenssberg cited significant ‘Brexiteer anger’ over May’s EU deal, so much so that some were submitting letters to the head of a committee of Conservative lawmakers responsible who handles leadership challenges.

The PM’s deal has faced strong opposition from both within her own government and from Labour, and could be set to be voted down in Parliament should it even be agreed upon at cabinet level.

News of the completed deal broke yesterday, leading to muted support from May’s allies and vows of opposition from Labour and Brexiteers.

Molecule Stores Solar Energy For 18 Yrs just created by scientists

Where do you store energy when the sun’s not shining, the wind’s not blowing, etc.?

The sunlight based industry has been caught on this branch for some time, however in the previous year alone, a progression of four papers has introduced a charming new arrangement

Solar energy acts as a battery

Sun energy works comparatively to a solar-powered battery that substitutes daylight and warmth in lieu of power. The group’s compound is an atom (norbornadiene) in a fluid shape that scientists at the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden have been creating for over a year. Produced using carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen, the particle is changed into a “vitality rich isomer”, one made of similar iotas yet bound in an unexpected way, when it is hit by daylight. The isomer would then be able to be put away as a fluid, with the vitality being utilized later.

“The energy in this isomer can now be stored for up to 18 years,” Kasper Moth-Poulsen, the team’s leader, said in a statement.

“And when we come to extract the energy and use it, we get a warmth increase which is greater than we dared hope for.”

At the point when daylight reaches the fluid the bonds between its molecules are improved and it changes into an empowered adaptation of itself called an isomer. The solar energy is then caught between the isomers’ solid concoction bonds.

Incredibly, the solar energy remains caught there notwithstanding when the atom chills off to the room temperature. To put the caught vitality to utilize, the fluid is put through an impetus which restores the particle to its unique shape, discharging vitality as warmth.

Aprototype fix utilizing this new fuel is now experiencing tests on one of the college’s structures, the group includes. The framework depends on a circuit that siphons the liquid through straightforward cylinders under a curved reflector (this spotlights daylight on the fuel). The charged fuel is then siphoned into capacity. The entire establishment acts much like a sunflower, following the Sun as it moves over the sky.

At the point when the solar energy is required, the liquid is separated through the impetus, warming it by 63 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit).

The expectation is that this glow can be utilized for household warming frameworks, controlling a building’s water warmer, dishwasher, garments dryer and considerably more, before making a beeline for the rooftop by and by.

The scientists have put the liquid through this cycle in excess of multiple times, getting heat and dropping it off without huge harm to the atom.

“We have made numerous significant advances as of late, and today we have a discharges free vitality framework which works all year around,” says Moth-Poulsen.

While they’ve demonstrated the framework is suitable, the group presently need to get everything cooperating easily. They need to get the temperature increment up to in any event 110°C (198°F) additionally, with a view to making the innovation business in 10 years.

“There is a considerable measure left to do,” said Moth-Poulsen.

“We have quite recently got the framework to work. Presently we have to guarantee everything is ideally structured.”

The improvement and commercialization of this warm fuel could be another key part in the relocation to sustainable power sources. The warm fuel requires no outside contribution past the sun and works in a shut circle framework. As we keep on creating novel innovations and advance existing advances, the progress to inexhaustible assets winds up simpler as well as turns out to be financially great as solar electricity for homes.

Corporate Media Lying Again: Trump Tells His Side of The Story About What Happened In France

Without directly referencing the rumors, Trump has branded reports that he refused to appear at a cemetery for American soldiers because he didn't want to get his hair wet as "fake news." In the tweet, Trump insisted that he wanted the Secret Service to drive him to the speech instead of taking a helicopter, but they refused because of security concerns. He added that he gave a speech at the cemetery the next day in the pouring rain - something that was "little reported".

By the way, when the helicopter couldn’t fly to the first cemetery in France because of almost zero visibility, I suggested driving. Secret Service said NO, too far from airport & big Paris shutdown. Speech next day at American Cemetary in pouring rain! Little reported-Fake News!

VIDEO: Losing Congressional Candidate Cucked HARD on Stage by Wife in Firey Anti-Concession Speech

Moments after her husband conceded his bid for Congress after months of scrutiny and attack ads, Amy Tarkanian took to the microphone and let loose.

“There is no room for the voters to complain when you’re going to put a liar into office; it is your fault,” Amy Tarkanian told a deflated crowd at the Republican election watch party the South Point, while her husband, Danny Tarkanian, stood by her side.

“We need to stop this kind of campaigning,” said Amy Tarkanian, who is mulling a Las Vegas City Council run next year. “I don’t care if your party affiliation is nonpartisan, Libertarian, Democrat, Republican — this crap needs to stop.”

Amy Tarkanian also praised her husband for standing with Donald Trump since 2016, when he was a presidential candidate — even as other Republicans distanced themselves from Trump.

“I pray to God that the president take a look and see what happened here,” Tarkanian told the crowd. “Because this man was loyal to him.”

Danny Tarkanian, who lost the 3rd Congressional District race to Democrat Susie Lee, tried to stop his wife from continuing, to which she gently said, “no.”

On social media, some Nevadans tweeted that her comment sounded “suspicious” — almost like Trump promised the Tarkanians something.

In an interview Wednesday, Amy Tarkanian said that asking Trump to “take a look” at her husband’s loss refers to the possibility of voter fraud.

“In a state like Nevada, we don’t even show ID at the polls — which is asinine,” she said. “We’re the third owners of our home and we still get sample ballots mailed to us in the names of other owners. I’m not saying that’s why he lost. I’m saying there is a mess that needs to be cleaned up.”

Danny Tarkanian blamed outside spending and a barrage of negative TV ads and mailers as the reason he lost the race for that seat for a second time.

The ads resurrected old claims that Tarkanian helped “set up” telemarketing companies that preyed on seniors, which he denied. Tarkanian won a defamation lawsuit against past political foes who made similar claims, and a lawsuit is pending against Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen, who he ran against in 2016. Rosen ousted GOP Sen. Dean Heller on Tuesday night.

“I have had over $20 million in character assassination ads used against me in the past six years, even though I have won a defamation lawsuit on these exact same lies and I am in the process of winning a second,” Tarkanian said Wednesday. “Despite them being totally false, too many voters believe these deceitful and disgusting ads.”

Tarkanian’s name appeared on the Nevada ballot six times, including two bids for Congress.

Lee’s campaign spokesman, Brandon Cox, defended the campaign’s claims and called Mrs. Tarkanian’s remarks “disturbing and deeply disappointing.”

“Susie looks forward to moving past the divisive election season and working together with Democrats and Republicans to get things done on behalf of Nevada families,” Cox said.

Amy Tarkanian said Wednesday that she stands by her election night comments.

“I’m not going to sugarcoat this,” she said. “I know they say you’re supposed to sit there and hug your opponent and wish them well. But I’m tired of empty suits and people who are willing to claw their way up and stab you in the back just to get a title. It’s disgusting.”

UK Firms Shilling The Mark of the Beast, Employees Angry Over Microchips

Britain’s biggest employer organisation and main trade union body have sounded the alarm over the prospect of British companies implanting staff with microchips.

UK firm BioTeq, which offers the implants to businesses and individuals, has already fitted 150 implants in the UK.

The tiny chips, implanted in the flesh between the thumb and forefinger, were first designed for tracking pets. Now the communists want to track humans like cattle. Control freaks want to force microchips to activate front doors, access offices and start cars, and to store and spy on medical data. Also to track goyim.

Another company, Biohax of Sweden, also provides human chip implants the size of a grain of rice. It told the Sunday Telegraph that it is in discussions with several British legal and financial firms about fitting their employees with microchips, including one major company with hundreds of thousands of employees.

The CBI, which represents 190,000 UK businesses, voiced concerns about the prospect.

A CBI spokesperson said: “While technology is changing the way we work, this makes for distinctly uncomfortable reading. Firms should be concentrating on rather more immediate priorities and focusing on engaging their employees.”

The TUC is worried that staff could be coerced into being microchipped. Its general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “We know workers are already concerned that some employers are using tech to control and micromanage, whittling away their staff’s right to privacy.

“Microchipping would give bosses even more power and control over their workers. There are obvious risks involved, and employers must not brush them aside, or pressure staff into being chipped.”

Last year Wisconsin-based Three Square Market partnered with Biohax and became the first company in the US to microchip its employees, on a voluntary basis.

KPMG, one of the big four accountancy firms, said it was not planning to microchip its employees and “would under no circumstances consider doing so”.

How To Stay Safe When All Hell Breaks Loose In America

How To Stay Safe When All Hell Breaks Loose In America

Learn Proper OPSEC: >>>/prepare/22 | https://archive.fo/isnXt

Tensions are incredibly high in the United States right now. I realized that over the past three years, I’ve written that they’re “at an all-time high” far too many times. So, I’ll just say, they’re high enough that all hell could break loose at any moment given the right (wrong) application of fuel to the flame. The number one thing you can do for this situation to keep your family safe is to be prepared for lockdown.

Pretending that it isn’t happening or hoping to hug it out is not a rational response to the chaos that is coming. I know that some cling to their misguided views on the way the world works with the ferocity of a mother bear protecting cubs, but for the rest of us, there’s this thing called reality. When we accept it, we can prepare for it.

People near the border are quite reasonably concerned that if thousands of immigrants push through our border illegally, they and their families could be at risk. People in other parts of the country are concerned about the aftermath of whatever happens when these people arrive at the border. Regardless of what occurs, somebody is going to be unhappy. Add in the fiercely-fought midterm elections and the threat of civil unrest is high.

Are you prepared for lockdown?

Which leads me to a very important subject. As the situation in the United States devolves, how prepared are you really? If you had to go into lockdown mode and keep your family safely at home, how long would you last with the supplies you have on hand? If the answer is “a few days” or “a couple of weeks” you need to work on that. Immediately.

By planning ahead, we can avoid the fear, panic, and confusion that leads people to rush to the store and clear the shelves like a horde of hungry locusts. We can stay away from the angry masses, the rioters who will use any excuse to steal, and the hungry people who are determined to feed their kids no matter who stands in their way.

Whether the next few weeks lead to pandemonium due to violent protests provoking some type of martial law, a prepared mindset, a defense plan, and a well-stocked home can help to keep you and your family out of harm’s way.

Keep in mind that the decision may not be entirely in your hands. In a martial law situation, it’s not unusual for the authorities to force people to stay in their homes. Remember in Boston when law enforcement was searching for the young man who, with his brother, was accused of setting off the bomb at the marathon? Residents were not allowed to leave their homes due to a “shelter in place directive.” The directive was presented as voluntary, but if you didn’t wish to have SWAT teams pointing guns in your face during this period of de facto martial law, staying home was the only option. Some people ran out of supplies the same day. Don’t be one of those people.

NOT CAPITALISM: State-run Amazon Gets Subsidized By Govt, Taxpayers Forced To Pay For New York HQ

New York is offering vastly more than Virginia for its half of the new Amazon headquarters. What’s up with that?

The city and state ponied up nearly $3 billion in taxpayer grants, credits and so on over 25 years. Down south, Amazon is getting $573 million plus $195 million in infrastructure upgrades.

New York state is kicking in more than $1.5 billion in taxpayer-funded incentives for getting half of Amazon's second headquarters located in a section of Queens.

Amazon will also receive as-yet unspecified incentives from New York City.

New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson issued a statement saying: "Amazon is one of the richest companies in the world…I also don’t understand why a company as rich as Amazon would need nearly $2 billion in public money for its expansion plans at a time when New York desperately needs money for affordable housing, transportation, infrastructure and education."

Most important, Amazon simply isn’t that big a “get.” As Nicole Gelinas notes, it’s offering to create 2,500 jobs a year — a drop in the bucket of the city’s employment growth since 2008.

Meaning “the city, as a whole, will barely notice these new jobs.”

Plus, she points out: “Google has hired 10,000 people in New York without massive subsidies.”

Hackers Now Selling ALL Facebook Users' Private Messages

Alternatives To State-run Social Media: >>>/prepare/20 | https://archive.fo/Eq9dR

https:// web.archive.org/web/20180924174142/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/20.html

Back On September 28, Facebook announced that as many as 90 million users may have had their "access tokens", which keep people logged into their account, stolen by hackers. The number was subsequently reduced to 30 million accounts whose phone numbers and email addresses were accessed in the largest security breach in the company's history.

Of the 30 million exposed, 14 million users had much more data harvested, including; "username, gender, locale/language, relationship status, religion, hometown, self-reported current city, birthdate, device types used to access Facebook, education, work, the last 10 places they checked into or were tagged in, website, people or Pages they follow, and the 15 most recent searches," according to the company.

It now appears that their private messages were also compromised.

According to the BBC, hackers appear to have compromised and published private messages from at least 81,000 Facebook users' accounts. The unknown perpetrators also told the BBC Russian Service that they had details from a total of 120 million accounts, which they were attempting to sell.

Meanwhile, Facebook said its security had not been compromised noting that the data had probably been obtained through malicious browser extensions.

Despite denying it had been breached, Facebook said it had taken steps to prevent further accounts being affected even though just over a month ago it admitted a massive hack had broken through its security tokens.

Meanwhile, the BBC said that while many of the users whose details were compromised are based in Ukraine and Russia, some are from the UK, US, Brazil and elsewhere.

"We have contacted browser-makers to ensure that known malicious extensions are no longer available to download in their stores," said Facebook executive Guy Rosen.

"We have also contacted law enforcement and have worked with local authorities to remove the website that displayed information from Facebook accounts."

The breach was first noted in September, when a post from a user nicknamed FBSaler appeared on an English-language internet forum: "We sell personal information of Facebook users. Our database includes 120 million accounts," the hacker wrote.

WTF!? Leftists Organize Mass Protests Over Firing Of Jeff Sessions

RELATED: >>>/n/699243 | https://archive.fo/mUsRp

Well, that escalated quickly. On Wednesday, President Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and by the end of the day major leftist organizations had already put together protests in 900 U.S. cities to make a “public demand for action to correct this injustice”.

It truly is amazing how rapidly these groups were able to put up web pages promoting these events and get the call out on social media. It is almost as if they knew that this was coming. MoveOn.Org is one of the organizations that is spearheading this effort, and their page promoting these protests is identical to the page promoting these protests on trumpisnotabovethelaw.org. According to both pages, the protests will be held on November 8th at 5 PM local time…

BREAKING: PROTESTS CALLED FOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 5 PM LOCAL TIME

Donald Trump has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel’s Trump-Russia investigation, crossing a red line set to protect the investigation. By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker as special counsel Robert Mueller’s boss on the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it. The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation. Our hundreds of response events are being launched to demonstrate the public demand for action to correct this injustice. We will update this page as the situation develops.

Anyone that thought that the midterm elections would calm down the level of strife in this country was just being delusional.

The truth is that the left was holding back during the run up to the midterm elections because they didn’t want to turn any potential voters against their candidates. Now that the midterm elections are over, they are free to do whatever they want.

The far left group Common Dreams is also participating in these “response events”, and the following is what their website says about them…

Progressive organizations have announced coordinated protests to take place in cities and communities nationwide on Thurdsay, November 8th at 5 PM (local time) in the wake of President Donald Trump’s firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Right after Trump forced Sessions to resign, the White House announced that Matthew Whitaker—a DOJ official who has shown open hostility to the probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller—would now serve as acting AG and be put in charge of the ongoing investigation.

Outraged American Parents: CDC Is Trying To Cover Up Deaths Under Medical Care!

(((GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE! HOW WONDERFUL GOYIM!)))

RELATED: >>>/n/701223 | https://archive.fo/wXVpc

Parents of children who had a horrifying polio-like illness are accusing the Centers for Disease Control of hiding the deaths of two children who suffered from the condition.

The parents say by not publicly acknowledging the two deaths, the agency is intentionally downplaying the severity of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), a disease that paralyzes healthy children in a matter of hours.

"I feel like they're just sugar-coating this," said Katie Bustamante, whose son Alex, age 6, died in May. "It eliminates my trust in the CDC."

Their accusations come amid a wave of criticism from parents of children with AFM and from some of the CDC's own medical advisers. In a recent on-camera interview with CNN, a group of parents gave the agency an "F" for its handling of the outbreak.

"I think we want to catch up with the backlog," said Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, a 30-year veteran of the CDC and a retired rear admiral in the US Public Health Service. "Even the past week we've expanded the number of disease detectives on the program."

Schuchat, who twice served as acting director of the agency and helped lead the fight against pandemic flu, SARS and anthrax, said she was sorry to hear that the parents think the CDC is hiding something.

Chris and Robin Roberts lost their 5-year old son, Carter, in September after a 2-year battle with AFM. CNN has seen portions of Carter's and Alex's medical records, which show their doctors had diagnosed them with AFM. In Carter's case, doctors at three medical centers – Virginia Commonwealth University, Johns Hopkins and Boston Children's Hospital – diagnosed him with the disease.

The CDC has set up a system where physicians report cases of AFM to their state health departments, which in turn report the cases to the CDC.

Two pediatric neurologists who serve as medical advisers to the CDC on AFM say they think the agency could be faster in reviewing and reporting cases and deaths.

"It shouldn't be taking this long to confirm these cases," said Dr. Keith Van Haren, assistant professor of neurology at the Stanford University School of Medicine and one of the CDC advisers. That kind of a turn around time for mortality reviews is a symptom of a disconnect at the CDC."

Carter's parents agree.

"They're doing a shit job of measuring this, excuse my French," said his mother, Robin, a healthcare IT specialist.

Merkel Backs Macron, calls for a EU military to stump Trump

https://www.straitstimes.com/world/europe/germanys-angela-merkel-calls-for-a-european-union-military

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called on Tuesday (Nov 13) for an integrated European Union military, echoing language used by French President Emmanuel Macron last week which irritated US President Donald Trump.

"We should work on a vision of one day establishing a real European army," Merkel told the European Parliament during a keynote speech in which she consciously backed Macron's call for European defence planning, operations and weapons development.

Macron's call, which reflects a broad trend of EU thinking but is not universally accepted, was meant to show European willingness to meet US demands that Europe do more for its own security and rely less on America's security umbrella.

Merkel said such an armed forces would not undermine the US-led military alliance Nato but could be complementary to it. Her remarks drew loud applause in the legislature but also boos from nationalist members.

However, on Twitter on Nov 9, Trump accused Macron of seeking to develop its own military to defend itself from the United States, which EU and French officials said was a misunderstanding.

On Tuesday, Trump took aim at Macron again, blasting France over its near defeat to Germany in two world wars, its wine industry and Macron's approval ratings.

In his remarks on Nov 6, Macron had been referring to computer hackers who could attack Europe from anywhere, including from inside the United States, officials said.

Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two - How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!

Missing Prof who Delivered Clinton’s Stolen Emails to Trump's Campaign,still lives,wants2 testify

A lawyer closely associated with Joseph Mifsud claims that the Maltese professor, who allegedly delivered word of Hillary Clinton’s stolen emails to Donald Trump's campaign, is willing to testify to the US Senate.

Mifsud disappeared after he was identified as the unnamed professor alleged by FBI investigators in court documents unsealed in October 2017 to have told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton in the form of thousands of emails, months before the Democrats themselves were aware that their computer system had been hacked.

He has not been seen in public since November that year. His former girlfriend in Ukraine says he disappeared, prosecutors in Italy investigating a decade-old case couldn’t locate him, and US investigators have complained they weren’t able to interrogate the professor thoroughly when he was last in the US in February 2017. Democratic National Committee lawyers even suggested he may be dead.

But in an email to BuzzFeed News sent on Monday, Stephan Roh, a 51-year-old Swiss lawyer with a long history of dealings with Mifsud, wrote, “Prof Mifsud is to testify in front of the US Senate — we are working towards his appearance.”

Spokespeople for the Senate Intelligence Committee declined to comment, and BuzzFeed News has been unable to independently verify this claim.

Asked if a date for the testimony had been set, whether Mifsud would be traveling to the US in person to testify, and if any talks with Senate officials to schedule a testimony had already taken place, Roh replied, “we will not comment or answer further questions of journalists until the Senate hearing takes place — unless necessary and in the interest of Prof. Mifsud.”

Mifsud’s interactions with Papadopoulos reportedly kickstarted the FBI investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election — and remain one of the great mysteries in special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe.

Should the Maltese academic suddenly reappear in public after more than a year to testify before the Senate, it could be a hugely significant moment in Mueller’s investigation.

Roh claims that Mifsud has done nothing wrong and was set up — and denies having ever told Papadopoulos the Russians had dirt on Clinton.

Last month, Roh emailed a photograph of Mifsud purportedly taken in May this year to several news organizations, including BuzzFeed News. Despite several requests, Roh has not granted BuzzFeed News — or other outlets — permission to publish the photo, the existence of which was first reported by the Associated Press.

More bones were found on the grounds of the Vatican embassy in Italy, adding grisly new evidence to the growing mystery over who was buried on Holy See territory and why.

As police returned to the compound Tuesday, coroner Giovanni Arcudi said preliminary examinations of bones found last week indicated they belonged to a woman likely in her 30s, “not an adolescent.”

The finding is significant since speculation has focused on whether the bones were Emanuela Orlandi’s. She was the daughter of a Vatican employee who disappeared in 1983 at age 15.

Despite the age of the bones, the Orlandi family lawyer, Laura Sgro, told the ANSA news agency her clients are waiting for DNA results. Some have hypothesized Emanuela wasn’t killed immediately, but instead held for years against her will.

IG Horowitz: 60 FBI Agents Guilty Of Taking Bribes From CNN & NY Times

Over 60 FBI agents took bribes from liberal media outlets, including CNN, The New York Times, NBC News and many others.

The bribes consisted of expensive dinners, NFL tickets, concert tickets, cruises and expensive vacations. The agents allegedly took a total of 300 gifts from the liberal news outlets.

I guess we now know what Barack Obama meant by his slogan “Hope and Change!”

Via True Pundit: https://archive.fo/1l5dz

“Access to the FBI is for sale.

Concert tickets. Expensive private dinners. NFL tickets. Parties on booze cruises. Discounts on travel.

FBI insiders said more than 60 agents in D.C. alone have been nailed for taking gifts from the news media. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said earlier this week about 50 FBI agents took 300 free gifts from news media.

However, Horowitz failed to stipulate that number is ONLY in Washington D.C. which covers one field office and FBI headquarters. The Inspector General did not examine the FBI’s other field offices, officials said. And the problem of taking free gifts for Intel is rampant, officials said.

New York. Los Angeles. New Haven. Philadelphia. The list goes on in the FBI’s 55 other field offices.

And so does the corruption. Outright bribery.

FBI sources who spoke to True Pundit divulged the names of three media outlets: NY Times, CNN and NBC News as having surfaced in recent external investigations. But there are dozens more, large and small.

FBI Director Christopher Wray wants this the issue of bribery and the FBI to disappear from news headlines, yet he has not launched an internal review nationwide to determine how rampant this problem is inside the FBI, sources said.

Why no national review by the Inspector General’s office?

Wray doesn’t want to go there, officials said.

In fact, high-ranking FBI officials do not want the list of FBI agents and news media divulged publicly either.

Wray and Horowitz are protecting the agents who took bribes, as well as their media enablers.

Good! Hungary Bans Subversive Cultural Marxism From Schools

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has banned gender studies programs (cultural marxism) at universities, with his deputy arguing that the area of study is an ideology rather than a science.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said “The Government’s standpoint is that people are born either male or female and we do not consider it acceptable for us to talk about socially-constructed genders, rather than biological sexes.”

Lat month the Hungarian government issued a decree to revoke accreditation and funding for gender studies programs at the two universities that provide them in the country.

Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen said that gender studies “has no business in universities” because it is “an ideology, not a science”.

CNN cries: https://archive.fo/zHoIF

According to Budapest’s prestigious Central European University, the government offered no public explanation for removing accreditation for their gender studies Master’s and PhD programs.

“In solidarity with Hungarian colleagues, we oppose this latest infringement on academic autonomy in the country,” said the university’s Department of Gender Studies in a statement.

“In the face of political moves such as this recent decision that mischaracterize and question the academic legitimacy of Gender Studies, we stress that the concept of gender, as a fundamental component of the human experience, has proven its importance in and across many areas of academic research.”

There are many new signs that Donald Trump is mentally deteriorating

Trump held a news conference after the midterm elections in which his affect was clearly depressed, until he engaged in a confrontation with CNN’s Jim Acosta.

The president traveled to Paris to take part in the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the treaty that ended WWI. He had previously cancelled his plans for a military parade, saying that he would honor the military in Paris instead.

On Saturday, Trump skipped the ceremony at Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France. The White House suggested that it was because of the weather, but that didn’t stop other world leaders or Trump’s staff from attending the event.

The president arrived two hours late to a dinner that evening with world leaders.

The White House announced that the president will not attend the ASEAN or APEC summits in mid-November.

Monday morning brought this announcement:

Trump confuses Baltics states with Balkans & accuses confused leaders of starting Yugoslav wars

It is hard to avoid the idea that there is a pattern to all of this. Based on his affect during the press conference last Wednesday, I asked whether or not Trump was depressed. That seemed to be the conclusion that a lot of people reached for various reasons. These last five days have only heightened that concern. It is a very real possibility that Trump is decompensating.

In medicine, decompensation is the functional deterioration of a structure or system that had been previously working with the help of allostatic compensation. Decompensation may occur due to fatigue, stress, illness, or old age. When a system is “compensated,” it is able to function despite stressors or defects. Decompensation describes an inability to compensate for these deficiencies.

The president did, however, brighten up a bit for one moment on Sunday.

His handler seemed to want to cheer him up.

At this point, it appears that the president will still attend the G20 meeting in Argentina at the end of November, where he’s expected to meet with Putin. It will be interesting to watch whether Robert Mueller releases any information before that date, which is probably what is causing the decompensation in the first place.

9 Years Into Obama’s Common Core, Math Scores at 20 Year Low and Falling

Nine years after Barack Obama forced schools around the country to adopt Common Core, teachers are coming forward with results to prove the controversial teaching method is a failure, and significantly less effective than traditional teaching methods.

Parents and teachers across the nation are now urging schools to dump the toxic Common Core curriculum, arguing that it deliberately dumbs down children and creates unnecessary and complicated methods for working out relatively simple problems.

Students are recording results lower than previously thought possible, and frustrated teachers are warning that “if we do nothing” about Common Core the results “will keep on declining.”

The newest batch of ACT scores show “dangerous long-term declines in performance,” with students’ math achievement reaching a new 20-year low, according to results released last month.

The average math score for the graduating class of 2018 was 20.5, marking a steady decline from 20.9 five years ago, and virtually no progress since 1998, when it was 20.6. Each of the four sections of the college-entrance exam is graded on a 36-point scale.

“We’re at a very dangerous point. And if we do nothing, it will keep on declining,” ACT’s chief executive officer, Marten Roorda, said in an interview.

Education Weeks reports: https://archive.fo/2LnmX

The pattern in math scores is particularly worrisome at a time when strong math skills are important for the science, engineering, and technology jobs that play powerful roles in the U.S. economy, he said.

Matt Larson, the immediate past president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, said the math scores “are extremely disappointing, but not entirely unexpected.”

Euro Slides After Italy's Salvini Says No Change To Budget Proposal

With the midnight deadline for Italy to resubmit its budget proposal to Brussels fast approaching, one of the two men who are effectively running Italy has just offered the clearest suggestion yet that Italy will not change its deficit and growth projections for its 2019 budget plan - setting Europe's third-largest economy on a path that could lead to billions of fines from Brussels and the prospect of a feared 'Italeave'.

In comments at the palace of the prime minister, where members of Italy's council of ministers have been holed up on Tuesday, Deputy Prime Minister and La Lega leader Matteo Salvini told a group of reporters that Italy would move forward with its budget plans, regardless of what Brussels thinks, according to Italy's ANSA newswire.

Reiterating the long-held position of the Italian government, Salvini said Italy's fiscal stimulus is essential to creating more jobs, offering better pension benefits and cutting taxes for many - but not all - Italians.

"We are working on a budget which guarantees more jobs, more right to a pension, less taxes, not for everyone, but for many Italians. If Europe is ok with that, we’re pleased, otherwise we continue straight ahead."

If Italy doesn't submit a new budget proposal with a deficit below 0.8% of GDP, in accordance with EU fiscal rules, the European Commission could seek to punish the populist government by levying billions of euros in fines, a burden that would further strain the finances of a country with the second-largest debt burden in Europe relative to GDP (second only to Greece). Salvini's comments followed remarks from his co-Deputy PM Luigi Di Maio, the leader of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, as well as the more measured Economic Minister Giovanni Tria, who both have said that cutting the stimulus would be tantamount to "suicide" for the Italian economy.

And presumably disappointing Q3 growth print, which suggested that the Italian economy stagnated last quarter, have only strengthened the populists' resolve.

The euro pared its earlier gains following Salvini's comments, which effectively confirmed what many have long expected: That the Italians will thumb their noses at the European Commission after it took the unprecedented step of rejecting Italy's budget proposal last month.

Meanwhile, Italian redenomination risk, which measures the likelihood that Italy will abandon the euro and resort to using the lira to pay down its debt, ticked higher as the prospect of all-out economic war with the European financial establishment prompted some to question Italy's future in the eurozone.

Kikes and Mudslime At Brink of Major War

Israeli strikes kept Palestinians in Gaza on edge throughout the night over whether another devastating war was beginning, while tens of thousands of Israelis took refuge in shelters as rockets rained down.

Israeli air strikes continued sporadically in Gaza on Tuesday while bulldozers cleared rubble left behind by the previous night's bombings that flattened multi-storey buildings.

"What happened was like an earthquake," said Abu Ayman Lemzeni, who lives near Hamas's Al-Aqsa TV building in Gaza City destroyed by an Israeli strike.

"As you see, here there is no more the grocery, the pharmacy, the office, the wall, the building."

Before him, two satellite dishes could be seen in the rubble after the pulverising Israeli strike.

Flashes of fire followed by powerful explosions came one after the other at a steady pace beginning at dusk on Monday.

"The children are afraid. They are terrorised," said Gaza resident Jamal Murtaja. "We couldn't sleep last night or this morning."

Many had only a short time to flee their homes and found themselves in the street due to a lack of secure shelters.

"As soon as we saw the missiles, we ran outside the house," said Mohammed Aboud, who lives near the former Al-Amal hotel building, which Hamas had used as an internal security headquarters before it was hit on Monday night.

"We are civilians. We don't have guns or rockets."

On Monday, more than 300 rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza into Israel, and the Israeli military struck back extremely hard in response. Many observers had been hoping that the barrage coming out of Gaza would slow down on Tuesday, but so far that has not happened. The Times of Israel is reporting that missile alarms were shrieking all over southern Israel as dawn broke on Tuesday, and at least 70 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at Jewish cities since midnight. If the barrage does not stop, there will be war. As you will see below, large numbers of IDF troops and tanks have been spotted heading to the Gaza border.

It turns out, many of the rockets that have been fired at Israel have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, but quite a few were able to get through.

One rocket that penetrated the missile defenses destroyed an Israeli bus.

The missile blew up the bus and seriously wounded a soldier standing nearby. The bus had been bringing reinforcements to the area, with dozens of soldiers disembarking just moments earlier. Even though this is not shown in the video, it’s clear that the Hamas squad was aware of all the details and chose to fire at this time.

The army has strict guidelines that are supposed to close off the border area and military assembly points to civilian transportation (other than urgent local traffic). These prohibit travel in unarmored vehicles in areas exposed to direct fire. Moreover, train movement in the area was halted a few hours earlier, precisely due to concerns about enemy fire.

The military doctrine holds that assembly points are moved beyond the range of an enemy’s tactical artillery. In the case of Hamas, this means mortar fire within a 5-kilometer (3-mile) range. Yet this mistake is being repeated, leading to high exposure to mortar fire – or, in this case, anti-tank missile fire as well. This has led to casualties in the past and also led to criticism during the 2014 Operation Protective Edge. One would expect the Israel Defense Forces to manage its movements in areas close to the border fence more carefully, and this serious mistake demands a thorough investigation.

Advocates Abroad teaches migrants to lie, act

In this video you see actual footage of the CEO of the NGO Advocates Abroad, Ariel Ricker, talking openly about how they teach migrants to act in a way that will get them asylum in Europe. She admits that she adapts the lessons to the official instructions of the EU and calls the EASO officers "fucking stupid".

Muslims learn to act like christians. They learn the keywords which are written down in the protocols for sorting out real refugees and get acting lessons and prefabricated stories to tell.

Study Finds Vaccine Aluminum In Lymph Nodes One Year After Injection

THE CURE FOR CANCER: >>>/prepare/53 | https:// archive.fo/ERvwm

https:// web.archive.org/web/20181023215826/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/53.html

Vaccinated sheep have traces of aluminum in their lymph nodes one year after being injected, according to a study published this week by Spanish veterinary researchers.

Lluís Luján and researchers at the University of Zaragosa divided 78 male lambs into three groups – one receiving an accelerated vaccine schedule of 19 injections over 15 months, one receiving aluminum salts commonly added to vaccines to provoke an immune response, and one group receiving a saline control.

Ghost Ship Media reports: https://archive.fo/QakZ6

The study reported that numerous granulomas – cheese-like blobs ranging from 0.5 cm in diameter to 2.0 cm in diameter in the tissue under their skin which migrated to the sheep’s lymph nodes and persisted in their bodies for the duration of the 15-month experiment – were a “universal reaction” in sheep injected with both aluminum adjuvant and vaccines.

The animals who were vaccinated developed more nodules which were more prominent than those which received aluminum adjuvant alone suggesting that commercial vaccine preparations evoke different immune responses than their aluminum ingredients alone. “Remarkably, seven of the vaccine lambs (26.9% of the group) showed between 13 and 16 nodules in the right flank” samples of tissue drawn at the end of the experiment when the animals were sacrificed.

When the researchers examined the tissue samples microscopically, the granulomas were found to be composed largely of macrophages – white blood cells that travel throughout the body scouring up pathogens – that were loaded with tiny dagger-like shards. These fragments were identified by special staining to be aluminum metal at levels more than 85 times the level found in samples from control lambs. They were found to clump together in jagged aggregates which the researchers linked to other research.

Other researchers have speculated that the jagged edges of aluminum engulfed in macrophages act like a Japanese throwing stars which puncture sacs inside the macrophages and spill out into the cell activating its programmed cell death pathways. That appears to be what Luján’s team saw: areas where sacs inside the macrophages showed “discontinuity and loss, leading to the presence of free intracytoplasmic spiculated material.” This material invaded areas of apparent cell death and contained the same needle-like shards as well as other materials including carbon, lead, copper and osmium – a byproduct of the staining reaction used in the experiment.

Aluminum is well established as a neurotoxin and its use in vaccines is highly contested by leading aluminum researchers even though public health agencies have insisted it is used in quantities insufficient to cause harm. In humans it has been linked to neurological diseases including Macrophagic Myofasciitis and in provoking a wide range of autoimmune diseases.

Luján first published research on aluminum toxicity in sheep when he discovered that a new and bizarre disease which decimated the Spanish sheep industry in 2009 was in fact caused by a compulsory blue tongue vaccine campaign. His team published a study demonstrating that the disease known as ovine Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (ASIA) can be experimentally induced by injection of vaccines containing aluminum and aluminum concentrates in damaged nervous tissue.

Godless dyke commie Kyrsten Sinema Declared Winner in Arizona Senate Race recount

Representative Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat and former social worker, scored a groundbreaking victory in the race for a Senate seat in Arizona, defeating her Republican opponent after waging a campaign in which she embraced solidly centrist positions.

Ms. Sinema’s victory over Martha McSally, a Republican congresswoman and former Air Force pilot, marks the first Democratic triumph since 1976 in a battle for an open Senate seat in Arizona. Ms. Sinema takes the seat being vacated by Jeff Flake, a Republican who is leaving the Senate after repeated clashes with President Trump.

Ms. Sinema’s victory guarantees the Democrats at least 47 Senate seats. Republicans control 51, with two still undecided: Florida, where there is a recount, and Mississippi, where there is a runoff.

The outcome in Arizona had been too close to call for nearly a week, as large numbers of early and mailed ballots were counted. Ms. Sinema had trailed slightly in initial tallies on Election Day, but later counting put her ahead by a growing margin. On Monday, The Associated Press called the race and Ms. McSally conceded.

Far Out! Gun Capable Of Fitting Into A Wallet Is Being Sold To Americans

The National Interest recently profiled the latest firearm which is pushing the limits in terms of size and technology — except this isn't a "big gun" — but quite the opposite. A North Carolina company has produced and is currently selling a single-shot "credit card gun" which fits into a wallet, and which can be neatly tucked away in a person's back pocket.

A military analyst writing for The National Interest describes the gun, called the "LifeCard," as "a single-shot, single-action .22 designed to resemble an innocuous credit card."

The credit-card sized pistol was "fashioned from lightweight anodized aluminum with a steel trigger and tilt-up barrel" which enables "the 7 oz. pistol folds up into a 3.375 inch by 2.215 inch card that, despite its half-inch thickness, can fit with relative ease inside your back pocket or average wallet."

It was developed by a North Carolina-based company Trailblazer Firearm, and has enough ammo storage for four rounds.

The company has billed it as a weapon of "last resort" in dangerous, unexpected situations, but it's also sure to draw controversy given the extreme ease of concealment and potential for passing through security screenings, similar to the controversy evoked by 3-D printed guns.

“Trailblazer Firearms fully intends to spearhead innovative new firearms products starting with the LifeCard, available later this month,” Trailblazer president Aaron Voight said in a statement. “New designs and true innovation have been the exception and our goal is to be the pioneer laying new trails for gun enthusiasts, designers, and manufacturers.”

But Jared Keller, writing for the military website Task & Purpose, poses the following question regarding the weapon's ultimate effectiveness in a life and death situation:

But how effective would this $400, uber-hyped firearm actually be in a situation that calls for a stealthily concealed weapon, or a quick draw? The product is so new that reports from the urban battlefield have barely been released.

State-run Twitter Deletes 10,000 Users At Request Of Democratic Committee

https:// web.archive.org/web/20181110155635/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/20.html

Twitter has deleted over 10,000 user accounts at the request of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee – a group that represents Democrats running for the U.S. House of Representatives.

A spokesman for Twitter recently told Reuters in a statement: “We took action on relevant accounts and activity on Twitter,” following the removal of over 10,000 Twitter accounts in September and October. The removal of the accounts is reportedly due to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) a party group that works to help Democrats running for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Breitbart.com reports: https://archive.fo/eeIEd

The DCCC reportedly began working to have social media websites crack down on certain accounts following the spread of “misinformation” about Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates during the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

Reuters notes that misinformation campaigns running up to the November 6 midterm elections have not been particularly common, Democrats are hoping that their efforts to crack down on social media will help if there is a large amount of social media activity during the final days before the election.

Reuters reports that according to three party sources, DCCC has developed their own system for finding and reporting automated accounts on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

The system used by DCCC implements tools developed by University of Indiana computer researchers called “Hoaxley” and “Botometer” which help to identify and analyze the spread of bot accounts.

Filippo Menczer, professor of informatics and computer science at the University of Indiana, commented on the programs stating: “We made Hoaxley and Botometer free for anyone to use because people deserve to know what’s a bot and what’s not.”

The Democratic National Committee works with multiple contractors to identify misinformation campaigns, one such contractor is RoBhat Labs, a firm which specializes in detecting bots and identifying political-bias in messages.

Ash Bhat, co-founder of RoBhat Labs, commented on the work the firm does with the DNC stating: “We provide the DNC with reports about what we’re seeing in terms of bot activity and where it’s being amplified… We can’t tell you who’s behind these different operations, Twitter hides that from us, but with the technology, you know when and how it’s happening.”

Good! Court Rules In Favor of Vaccine Safety Activists, US Government Sued For Corrupt Negligence

Del Bigtree, founder of Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN), teamed up with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to take on the U.S. government by filing suit against the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for vaccine safety violations — and they won. This is big news for all concerned with the topic of vaccine safety. It turns out the federal agency has been neglecting their vaccine safety obligations for over 30 years. The lawsuit brought by RFK Jr. is evidence that “vaccine safety” as we know it is nothing more than a sham.

Government agencies charged with protecting the public are not doing their part to ensure and improve the safety of immunizations, but will they be held accountable?

As sources explain, a clause in the The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (NVICA) compels DHHS to take responsibility for improving vaccine safety and efficacy, and charges the agency with constant monitoring and improving of adverse event reporting. The Mandate for Safer Childhood Vaccines clause also tasks DHHS with providing a report on improvements made in these areas to Congress every two years.

RKF Jr. and ICAN reportedly suspected that DHHS was failing to meet this responsibility, and filed a Freedom of Informtation Act request to obtain the records of these biennial reports. For eight months, DHHS tried to blockade their request and refused to provide information. Ultimately, a lawsuit had to be filed.

As a document from ICAN reads:

"ICAN was therefore forced to file a lawsuit to force HHS to either provide copies of its biennial vaccine safety reports to Congress or admit it never filed these reports. The result of the lawsuit is that HHS had to finally and shockingly admit that it never, not even once, submitted a single biennial report to Congress detailing the improvements in vaccine safety. This speaks volumes to the seriousness by which vaccine safety is treated at HHS and heightens the concern that HHS doesn’t have a clue as to the actual safety profile of the now 29 doses, and growing, of vaccines given by one year of age."

Despite being charged with the responsibility of investigating and improving vaccine safety DHHS has apparently failed to meet even the most basic aspects of this duty by failing to file a single report for the past thirty years. Three decades have passed since NVICA was put into place, and DHHS has never so much as raised a finger towards vaccine safety — an issue which should be a top priority, especially given the fact that NVICA erases industry responsibility regarding vaccine injuries.

So not only is the government granting Big Pharma carte blanche on the matter of vaccine injury, yet another agency charged with protecting the public from vaccines has completely refused to do so.

Regrettably, HHS has chosen to focus on its obligation to increase vaccine uptake and defend against any claim vaccines cause harm in the National Injury Vaccine Compensation Program (aka, the Vaccine Court) to such a degree that it has abandoned its vaccine safety responsibilities. If HHS is not, as confirmed in Court this week, even fulfilling the simple task of filing a biennial report on vaccine safety improvements, there is little hope that HHS is actually tackling the much harder job of actually improving vaccine safety.

Will the DHHS finally be held accountable for their failure, or will the vaccine industry continue to spread its toxic injections without fear of government scrutiny? See more coverage of the atrocities behind inoculations at Vaccines.news

Jerome Corsi, formerly of InfoWars, indicted by Mueller investigation

Jerome Corsi, a political commentator who was recently subpoenaed to testify in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation — told ABC News on Monday that he’s expecting an indictment from the special counsel soon.

“I don’t know what they’re going to charge me with. … I think my only crime was that I support Donald Trump. That's my crime, and now I'm going to go to prison for the rest of my life for cooperating with them.”

Details: Corsi was a prominent figure behind the birther conspiracy, which falsely claimed President Obama was born outside the U.S. He has connections to former Trump adviser Roger Stone Jr.

He added that his ongoing negotiations with Mueller and his team have "just blown up" in the two months since, even though he said he "did everything" he could to cooperate and thought he was "doing a pretty good job" of it, including by turning over two Apple computers to investigators and giving the FBI permission to review all of his email accounts and tweets.

WHO'S BEEN CHARGED IN RUSSIA PROBE SO FAR? RUSSIAN NATIONALS, FMR TRUMP CAMPAIGN CHAIR, AND MORE

"I fully anticipate that in the next few days I will be indicted by Mueller for some form or other of giving false information to the special counsel or to one of the other grand jury – or however they want to do the indictment. But I'm going to be criminally charged," he said.

He added: "This has been one of the most frightening experiences of my life. At the end of the two months, my mind was mush."

Corsi, who wrote the anti-President Obama book "The Obama Nation," said he is being targeted for political reasons.

Time To Use A VPN! AT&T Begins Cutting Off Customers' Services Over Online Piracy

AT&T will alert a little more than a dozen customers within the next week or so that their service will be terminated due to copyright infringement, according to sources familiar with its plans.

Why it matters: It's the first time AT&T has discontinued customer service over piracy allegations since having shaped its own piracy policies last year, which is significant given it just became one of America's major media companies.

Between the lines: AT&T owns a content network after its purchase of Time Warner earlier this year, an entity now called WarnerMedia. Content networks are typically responsible for issuing these types of allegations to internet service providers (ISPs) for them to address with their customers.

A source said it's unclear whether WarnerMedia was involved directly in issuing piracy allegations in these instances, although it's possible.

This should raise alarm bells for ALL internet users, its time to take privacy into your own hands and store backups of everything.

Good! Destructive Economic Climate Communist Ballot Measures Fail To Pass

Efforts to force the nation away from burning fossil fuels were rejected by voters Tuesday across a swath of resource-rich states in the western United States.

Voters in Arizona, one of the nation's most sun-soaked states, shot down a measure that would have accelerated its shift toward generating electricity from sunlight. Residents in oil- and gas-rich Colorado defeated a measure to sharply limit drilling on state-owned land.

Even in the solidly blue state of Washington, initial results were poor for perhaps the most consequential climate-related ballot measure in the country this fall: A statewide initiative that would have imposed a first-in-the-nation carbon tax on emissions of carbon dioxide.

The failure of the ballot measures is a big blow to control freak beurocrats and communists alike.

Since President Donald Trump took office, a handful for communist-controlled states - notably Commiefornia - have vowed to be a counter weight on energy and environmental policy to the president, who frequently dismisses global warming fraud. In September, Commiefornia codified into law a commitment to produce 100 percent of its electricity from carbon-free courses by 2045.

But Tuesday's ballot-question results demonstrate the limits to which other states are willing to follow Commiefornia's lead - particularly when campaigners against the proposals emphasize the supposed impact on pocketbooks.

"What we learned from this election, in states like Colorado, Arizona, and Washington, is that voters reject policies that would make energy more expensive and less reliable," Thomas Pyle, president of the American Energy Alliance, a free-market advocacy group, said in a statement.

End Times Cometh! Middle School Girls Arrested Trying To Kill Other Girls, Drink Their Blood!

BE PREPARED: >>>/prepare/1 | https:// archive.fo/elYwR

https:// web.archive.org/web/20180910185746/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/1.html

A pair of middle school girls from central Florida is in police custody after the duo admitted to plotting the gruesome murder of their classmates as an act of homage and worship to Satan.

The girls, one in 6th grade and the other in 7th, reportedly attended Bartow Middle School near Tampa, and had together made a pact to hide in one of the school’s bathrooms during class time and wait to take out younger, weaker students as they entered the facility.

“They noted that they wanted to kill at least 15 people and were waiting in the bathroom to find smaller kids that they could overpower to be their victims,” stated Bartow Police Chief Joe Hall to ABCActionNews.com.

“I believe that these two small children – I’m going to call them small children, they are only 11 and 12 – seriously sat down and plotted to do bodily harm to another student at school,” he added.

According to media reports, the two girls were found in the bathroom holding a goblet that a school administrator suspected was being used to drink alcohol. But after the girls were taken in for questioning, they openly revealed that the plan was to siphon the blood from their fellow students’ bodies and drink it out of the goblet.

The girls also had with them an arsenal of weaponry, including knives, a knife sharpener, scissors, and a pizza cutter. Messages later intercepted between the two revealed that their plan was to butcher students using these tools, drink their blood and eat their flesh, and leave various body parts strewn about the school’s entrance before ultimately committing suicide themselves.

Fuck u Trump,N.Korea moving ahead with its ballistic missile program at 16 hidden bases

N. Korea, Missile Bases : a Great Deception

North Korea is moving ahead with its ballistic missile program at 16 hidden bases that have been identified in new commercial satellite images, a network long known to American intelligence agencies but left undiscussed as President Trump claims to have neutralized the North’s nuclear threat.

The satellite images suggest that the North has been engaged in a great deception: It has offered to dismantle a major launching site — a step it began, then halted — while continuing to make improvements at more than a dozen others that would bolster launches of conventional and nuclear warheads.

The existence of the ballistic missile bases, which North Korea has never acknowledged, contradicts Mr. Trump’s assertion that his landmark diplomacy is leading to the elimination of a nuclear and missile program that the North had warned could devastate the United States.

“We are in no rush,” Mr. Trump said of talks with the North at a news conference on Wednesday, after Republicans lost control of the House. “The sanctions are on. The missiles have stopped. The rockets have stopped. The hostages are home.Nothing to see here, folks

His statement was true in just one sense. Mr. Trump appeared to be referring to the halt of missile flight tests, which have not occurred in nearly a year. But American intelligence officials say that the North’s production of nuclear material, of new nuclear weapons and of missiles that can be placed on mobile launchers and hidden in mountains at the secret bases has continued.

Moreover, an American program to track those mobile missiles with a new generation of small, inexpensive satellites, disclosed by The New York Times more than a year ago, is stalled. The Pentagon once hoped to have the first satellites over North Korea by now, giving it early warning if the mobile missiles are rolled out of mountain tunnels and prepared for launch.

But because of a series of budget disputes, the early warning system, begun by the Obama administration and handed off to the Trump administration, who don't want money spemt there, has yet to go into operation. Current and former officials, who said they could not publicly discuss the program because it is heavily classified, said there was still hope of launching the satellites, but they offered no timeline.

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) President Cardinal Daniel DiNardo informed the bishops of the request at the opening of the USCCB Fall General Assembly Monday in Baltimore. The meeting has been highly anticipated with the bishops’ plan to address the latest developments in the sex abuse scandal as a full body for the first time since the early days of the crisis in 2002.

“At the insistence of the Holy See we will not be voting on the two actions items in our documentation regarding the abuse crisis,” DiNardo said. “That is the standards of accountability for bishops and the special commission for receiving complaints against bishops.”

“The Holy See has asked that we delay voting on these so that our deliberations can inform and be informed by the global meeting of the conference presidents that the Holy Father has called for February 2019.

The Brexit secretary is privately pushing for a no-deal Brexit

https://www.businessinsider.com/dominic-raab-is-privately-pushing-for-no-deal-brexit-2018-11?r=UK&IR=T

Brexit secretary Dominic Raab is preparing to lead a group of Cabinet ministers arguing that a no-deal exit would be preferable to a deal that breaches their red lines.

The group of ministers will tell the prime minister that the current deal being offered by the EU is unacceptable and say that May should leave with no deal if Brussels does not make more concessions, Buzzfeed reported.

The ministers will insist that the EU drops its Northern Ireland-only "backstop to the backstop" measure and that the deal should include a "break clause" mechanism which allows the UK to leave a UK-wide customs arrangement without EU consent.

The move from such senior colleagues in Cabinet makes the prospect of a no-deal exit significantly more likely and offers May an even bigger headache as she struggles to bring back a deal from Brussels which will have the support of her Cabinet and then of parliament.

EU officials have repeatedly insisted that they will not give in to demands over the Irish backstop — an insurance measure designed to avoid a hard border in Ireland — which they see as integral to any divorce deal.

Diversity! 13-Year-Old Girl Gives Migrant Free Language Classes, Gets Raped

A 13-year-old girl who offered to help an asylum seeker by giving him free private tutoring to help him “learn the language” and integrate into society has learned a valuable lesson herself about multiculturalism and diversity.

After agreeing to tutor the 27-year-old asylum seeker, the 13-year-old was brutally raped when the refugee exploited the young girl’s hospitality for his own devious desires.

German newspaper SN-Online reported that the child was forced into sex acts by the asylum seeker, who is more than double her age, after she entered a room with him, believing he wanted he wanted to improve his German language knowledge.

“My daughter said he restrained her and locked the door,” the girl’s 42-year-old mother said. “He forced her.”

The child testified that she had told the migrant, “No, I don’t want this,” but he continued to force himself upon her, according to Unser Tirol 24.

MadWorld reports: https://archive.fo/YaRxP

Most disturbingly, the refugee claims that he is completely innocent and that the child initiated the sexual contact. He also maintains that he believed that she was at least “18 or 19” because she “looked grown-up.”

“I thought she was 18 or 19. She looked grown-up,” said the man at the county court trial. Both had met several times before.

By his own account, the 27-year-old just wanted to speak German with the girl to learn the language. “I did not want a relationship, because I’m a married man.”

Supposedly, the girl took the initiative. “The intercourse was friendly,” said defender Michael Einars for his client. That too would be punishable. “I am only human,” said the defendant.

The incident occurred at the girl’s friend’s house in Bückeburger, where the child volunteered at a local refugee center and formed a close relationship with her rapist. In fact, the girl’s own mother admitted in court to knowing that her young daughter had a crush on the much older, married asylum seeker. She confessed that, despite the large age gap, the girl would often gush over the refugee, stating that “she loved him.” Another witness confirmed that the girl would often be seen holding hands with the man, giving “the impression of a normal couple.”

Disruptions to Global Positioning System signals have been reported in northern Norway and Finland this month, overlapping with the final days of NATO’s exercise Trident Juncture, a massive military exercise that has drawn Russia’s ire.

A press officer for Widerøe, a Norway-based airline operating in the Nordics, told The Barents Observer at the beginning of November that pilots reported the loss of GPS while flying into airports in the northern Norwegian region of Finnmark, near the Russian border, though the officer stressed that pilots had alternative systems and there were no safety risks.

Norway’s aviation authority, Avinor, issued a notice to airmen of irregular navigation signals in airspace over eastern Finnmark between October 30 and November 7, according to The Observer.

Doctors post blood-soaked photos after NRA tells them to "stay in their lane"

US doctors are sharing haunting pictures of the aftermath of gun violence on social media after the National Rifle Association of America (NRA) told medical experts to "stay in their lane" when it comes to firearms restrictions.

Photos of blood-stained scrubs, graphic X-rays and moving selfies have flooded Twitter in response to a post from the NRA promoting a news release which took aim at medical professionals calling for gun restrictions.

The NRA promoted the post in a tweet, which had attracted 3,000 likes but more than 20,000 replies.

Half of the articles in Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control.

"Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted no-one but themselves."

Forensic pathologist Judy Melinek saw the tweet as she was preparing to perform an autopsy on a victim who died from a gunshot wound.

Angered by the message, she fired off a reply before heading to the morgue.

Saudis angry at Turks for not takng bribe to ignore embassy murder;Like Trump,mammon rules

6 weeks after Jamal Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi agents, the decision-making process in Riyadh is slowly starting to change. Fallout from the assassination in Istanbul has wounded Mohammed bin Salman, the heir to the throne, and given a second wind to an old guard of elders, whose views are once more being heard.

Central to the resentment, according to sources close to the royal court in Riyadh, is a view that the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan betrayed the Kingdom by disclosing details of the investigation and refusing all overtures from Saudi envoys, including an offer to pay “significant” compensation.

Medical Marijuana Patients Federally Barred from buying firearms

The federal form required with each gun purchase specifically says that using or possessing marijuana is illegal under federal law, regardless if it is OK for medicinal or recreational use in any state.

Pind said he has seen it happen to Missourians who bought pot in Colorado, where it is legal.

"They came back to Missouri, went to purchase a gun. You have to have a photo ID. When we run your name through the computer, it automatically connects you with buying marijuana in Colorado," Pind said.

That's because dispensaries also check identification for marijuana purchases.

The organizers of the medical marijuana amendment in Missouri acknowledge that this will be an issue, as it is in the other 31 medical marijuana states.

"If you have to get a prescription, you have to go to a registered store to buy this. You're going to have to show ID to prove who you are. They're going to have to have records on it. Everybody's going to know it," Pind said.

Organizers said it will be late 2019 or 2020 before medical marijuana will be available in Missouri.

Carbon emissions are acidifying the ocean so quickly that the seafloor is disintegrating

According to a study published this week in PNAS , this sets off a feedback loop that acidifies the ocean even more quickly, a process that is already killing off foundational marine life species such as coral and threatening the balance of all ocean ecosystems on which we depend.

“Our study confirms that humans are now a geological force capable of impacting the Earth’s system, like a super-volcano or a meteoritic impact,” Olivier Sulpis, an earth science researcher at McGill University and lead author on the study, said to Motherboard in an email.

The root of the problem is that a foundational chemical reaction that keeps the oceans at pH levels that are conducive to life is being thrown out of whack.

Calcium carbonate, or calcite, lines the ocean floor. When calcite combines with carbon dioxide and water, the reaction produces calcium ions and bicarbonate ions. Because of this, the surrounding water becomes less acidic over long periods of time—think tens to thousands of years. But when you throw more carbon dioxide into the equation, all of the seafloor calcite starts to get used up to power these reactions in extremely large amounts, meaning that the ocean floor is dissolving. Now, there’s not enough calcite but more carbon dioxide than ever, driving up acidity levels.

Foundational species in the marine food chain, such as coral, are fine-tuned to thrive within a very particular range of pH levels. When those levels change for a long period of time, these species—as well as the fish, bacteria, mollusks, and ocean life that depends on them—simply can’t survive. The last time the oceans were as acidic as they are now, 96 percent of ocean life was extinct.

According to Sulpis, calcium carbonate is still dissolving carbon dioxide in the water, which means there is still a chemical force fighting against ocean acidification. But the rate at which we’re emitting carbon dioxide, which then gets absorbed by the ocean, is far greater and faster than the rate at which carbon dioxide gets taken up by calcium carbonate on the ocean floor.

Just how bad is the damage? According to the study, in the northwest Atlantic Ocean, adjacent to Europe, 40 to 100 percent of the seafloor has been dissolved at the most severe locations.

Based on our most optimistic forecasts for ocean acidification, which assume that we fundamentally restructure our society in order to mitigate climate change, 90 percent of coral reef communities will bleach by 2100. In short, we’re in trouble.

“Geologists in millions of years may look at the Anthropocene as a brown layer of sediments lost in the geological record,” Sulpis said. “It’s a bit mind blowing. So at the end of the day, when we do take a step back and contemplate these results, it becomes scary.”

South africa:4 apes to be sentenced for raping,torturing,killing white beauty

RAPE TORTURE Member of gang accused of rape and murder of Hannah Cornelius, 21, has PEARLS embedded in his penis which ‘make sex attacks more painful’

Murder co-accused Geraldo Parsons, 27, reportedly told the court his piercings were "his privacy"

Afrikaans news outlet Die Son reported Geraldo Parsons claimed the piercings were part of his Jewish culture and gave his girlfriend pleasure.

But in other unrelated cases criminals have been accused of inserting similar appendages to inflict pain during sex.

A reporter for News24 tweeted that initial questions about the penis piercings raised objections, which were withdrawn, prompting Parsons to say the pearls were "his privacy".

The horrifying detail is the latest from the case, in which it was revealed yesterday that Cornelius's parents were sent a begging letter by one of the gang rapists who killed her.

The letter was submitted as evidence on Tuesday, after a separate court decision deemed it to be admissible, and asked the parents: "Don't be angry with me, please".

The four men involved in the kidnap and murder of Hannah Cornelius and the brutal attack on her friend Cheslin Marsh will be sentenced in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

Proceedings to seal their fate are expected to begin at 14:00.

During pre-sentencing proceedings last week Prosecutor Lenro Badenhorst argued for life sentences to protect society from men such as them.

New Study: Artificial Sweeteners Found In Soda Triple Risk of Strokes, Dementia

THE CURE FOR CANCER: >>>/prepare/53 | https:// archive.fo/ERvwm

https:// web.archive.org/web/20181023215826/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/53.html

To shed weight and appear trim, millions of people around the globe have turned to diet drinks which are low in sugar but predominantly sweetened with aspartame, an established neurotoxin.

Though the effects of aspartame are widely known and keep some people from consuming “diet” beverages, only recently have researchers confirmed that sipping diet fizzy drinks daily increases one’s risk of developing dementia or having a stroke later on in life.

Scientists from Boston University studied almost 4,400 adults to determine the effects of drinking full sugar vs diet drinks, and concluded that adults who have one diet drink a day are three times more at risk to suffer a stroke or dementia.

https://archive.fo/qVMS0

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-4429790/Diet-drinks-TRIPLE-risk-stroke-dementia.html

The study was conducted for ten years. As The Daily Mail reports, the team concluded that adults who had one or more diet drink a day were 2.9 times more likely to develop dementia and 3 times more at risk of strokes, compared to those who consumed virtually none.

“We recommend that people drink water on a regular basis instead of sugary or artificially sweetened beverages,” Pase added.

The researchers believe artificial sweeteners, including aspartame and saccharine, affect the blood vessels which eventually trigger strokes and dementia.

“As people are becoming more aware of the consequences of a high-sugar diet, many are turning to artificially-sweetened diet fizzy drinks as an alternative to those with lots of sugar. Future studies will need to confirm these findings in other groups of people, and explore what might be underlying any link between artificially-sweetened soft drinks and dementia.”

Gavin Partington, director-general of the British Soft Drinks Association, disagrees with the empirical data.

World government shills vaccine for alien invasion viruses

THE United States deep state is planning on staging a fake alien invasion to increase its stronghold on the world, according to a new conspiracy theory

Return of Kings conspiracy website wrote: “As utterly insane as it sounds, it seems possible that the US Government is preparing to try to convince the world that there is an alien invasion about to happen, in the largest ‘false flag’ since 9/11.

“I don’t believe in UFOs or alien lifeforms but I do believe that the media puts on large-scale coordinated shows in conjunction with the government.

“It’s a way to unite the entire country (or world) against a common enemy, while also an excuse for a power grab. And an easy way to steal more money—‘oh, we need vaccines against alien viruses, my friend’s company happens to make them and it will cost $10 billion—but we need it!’.

“Plus, if the deep state is in a war against the President, as seems to be the case, then the deep state probably needs to activate some pretty extreme contingency backup plans it had been planning for a long time.”

Good! Hungary Bans Subversive Cultural Marxism From Schools

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has banned gender studies programs (cultural marxism) at universities, with his deputy arguing that the area of study is an ideology rather than a science.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said “The Government’s standpoint is that people are born either male or female and we do not consider it acceptable for us to talk about socially-constructed genders, rather than biological sexes.”

Lat month the Hungarian government issued a decree to revoke accreditation and funding for gender studies programs at the two universities that provide them in the country.

Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen said that gender studies “has no business in universities” because it is “an ideology, not a science”.

CNN cries: https://archive.fo/zHoIF

According to Budapest’s prestigious Central European University, the government offered no public explanation for removing accreditation for their gender studies Master’s and PhD programs.

“In solidarity with Hungarian colleagues, we oppose this latest infringement on academic autonomy in the country,” said the university’s Department of Gender Studies in a statement.

“In the face of political moves such as this recent decision that mischaracterize and question the academic legitimacy of Gender Studies, we stress that the concept of gender, as a fundamental component of the human experience, has proven its importance in and across many areas of academic research.”

Tech companies and Europe to fight each other

PARIS (Reuters) - France and U.S. technology giants including Microsoft (MSFT.O) on Monday urged world governments and companies to sign up to a new initiative to regulate the internet and fight threats such as cyber attacks, online censorship and hate speech.

With the launch of a declaration entitled the ‘Paris call for trust and security in cyberspace’, French President Emmanuel Macron is hoping to revive efforts to regulate cyberspace after the last round of United Nations negotiations failed in 2017.

In the document, which is supported by many European countries but, crucially, not China or Russia, the signatories urge governments to beef up protections against cyber meddling in elections and prevent the theft of trade secrets.

The Paris call was initially pushed for by tech companies but was redrafted by French officials to include work done by U.N. experts in recent years.

“The internet is a space currently managed by a technical community of private players. But it’s not governed. So now that half of humanity is online, we need to find new ways to organize the internet,” an official from Macron’s office said.

“Otherwise, the internet as we know it today — free, open and secure — will be damaged by the new threats.”

By launching the initiative a day after a weekend of commemorations marking the 100th anniversary of World War One, Macron hopes to promote his push for stronger global cooperation in the face of rising nationalism.

In another sign of the Trump administration’s reluctance to join international initiatives it sees as a bid to encroach on U.S. sovereignty, French officials said Washington might not become a signatory, though talks are continuing.

However, they said large U.S. tech companies including Facebook (FB.O) and Alphabet’s Google (GOOGL.O) would sign up.

“The American ecosystem is very involved. It doesn’t mean that in the end the U.S. federal government won’t join us, talks are continuing, but the U.S. will be involved under other forms,” another French official said.

The Lord Has Spoken! Man Cures Brain Tumor by Prayer, Not Big Pharma Drugs

It’s a medical mystery that’s left several doctors scratching their heads. A suspected malignant brain tumor vanishes without treatment giving a patient a second chance at life.

It happened to a Lodi man who turned to his faith and the very community he has spent years helping. Several months ago, Lodi father and community volunteer Paul Wood realized something just wasn’t right.

“I had massive headaches, I couldn’t walk down the hallway without holding on to the walls,” he said.

Wood’s primary physician sent him to a neurosurgeon at UC San Francisco who thought he had a brain bleed, although radiologists saw signs of a tumor. Wood immediately turned to his faith and his community for support.

The day before surgery, Wood’s operation was canceled because his suspected tumor was gone.

“It’s a miracle and that is the way God planned it,” he said.

Specialists said they can’t explain why everything vanished. Wood’s doctor can’t either.

Faith leaders at Gravity Church, where Wood is a member, believe when there is prayer in numbers, there is a higher power at work.

“He just kept saying, ‘no matter what happens to me, I’m going to be okay. I trust God.’ And that was an inspiration for a lot of people around him,” said Jason McEachron, a Pastor at Gravity Church.

AMEN!

Leaked Documents Prove US Colleges No Longer Teaching Your Kids... They Pamper Them!

Students at an Illinois college received an email on Tuesday offering “extra support and resources” for those struggling to “process” the 2018 midterm election results.

Three Elmhurst College offices informed students that there would be increased support on campus during the “stressful time” of midterm elections, according to an email obtained by Campus Reform.

“Our staff will have open office hours to provide a space to process the outcomes of the elections,” Elmhurst’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Office of Student Involvement, and Office of the Chaplain said in the email.

“We will also have coffee, cider, hot chocolate, and some treats to offer you,” they continued.

“We hope that you will join us if you need some extra support and resources throughout the day.”

The school invited those unable to make the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. office hour window to a separate “space to process election results” held by the Elmhurst’s Spiritual Life Council at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

“I think it’s pretty cool that the school gives people a place to go and get information on the election,” Elmhurst student Tramaine Franklin told Campus Reform.

Following the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, students at the University of California-Irvine gathered for a “group cry” where they proclaimed their “solidarity” with “marginalized communities” in response to Trump’s win.

More recently, professors at Mississippi State University went as far as to cancel classes for a “moment of silence” to honor the women who accused then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. At least one of Kavanaugh's accusers has since admitted that it was "just a ploy," USA Today reported.

Make note: these kids are not prepared for the real world or the hardship they will endure what-so-ever.

They occur when cool air collides with intense rising heat, which contracts into a tornado-like vortex. Several have been captured on video from afar during the last several days of chaos, however the one below looks like a scene straight from hell.

Jordan Peterson BTFO: 11-year-old refuses to clean his room, shoots grandmother then commits suicide

An 11-year-old Litchfield Park boy shot his grandmother before turning the gun on himself after refusing to clean his room Saturday, officials said. 

Yvonne Woodard, 65, and her husband lived with their grandson in a home on the 800 block of West Grove Street in Litchfield Park, according to Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Joaquin Enriquez.

The grandfather told MCSO detectives they had asked their grandson to clean his room, but he was being stubborn about it.

The couple were sitting on the couch watching TV together when the grandson came up behind his grandmother and shot her in the back of the head, Enriquez said.

The grandfather first ran after the grandson before returning to help his wife. He then heard gunshots as his grandson shot himself.

Enriquez said the gun belonged to the grandfather. Investigators have yet to find anything that would indicate the grandson wanted to hurt himself or others before the shooting.

An ‘outstanding soldier’ was at the centre of neo-Nazi terrorists’ attempts to recruit inside the British army. Mikko Vehvilainen was jailed for eight years after being convicted for membership of the banned-group National Action.

Afghanistan veteran, Royal Anglian Regiment Corporal Mikko Vehvilainen, 34, served as a ‘recruiter’ for National Action (NA), according to prosecutors.

The group had been trying to grow its membership through the targeting of the armed forces. Other NA members had been repeatedly trying to join the army, but were rejected.

The court heard how Finnish-born Vehvilainen was connected to three other soldiers, two of which were disciplined internally and remained a part of the forces, while the third was thrown out of the force.

Pavlos Panayi QC told the trial judge that “his career in the army is over and he leaves having brought dishonour on himself and what is more, infamy.”

Roughly two days after they first exploded into being, the wildfires blazing across California continued to expand on Saturday as firefighters in Butte County in Northern Cali struggled to contain the Camp Fire - now the most destructive blaze in California history - while the Woolsey and Hill fires burning through Los Angeles and Ventura County have driven hundreds of thousands of people out of their homes and torched ritzy neighborhoods in Malibu and other celebrity-friendly strongholds.

Together, the three fires have killed at least 11 people, as the National Weather Service warned that ideal wildfire conditions would persist through mid-week.

Fortunately for the thousands of firefighters battling the blazes, officials said they expect a pause in the Santa Ana winds on Saturday that could offer a break to tamp down the flames before the winds return on Sunday.

Ironically, Thousand Oaks, which was once considered one of the safest cities in the country before a crazed gunman massacred 12 people at a local bar earlier this week, has been surrounded by flames, forcing residents to flee.

One resident told CBS News that the combined impact of the disasters was "devastating" on the town's collective psyche.

"It's devastating. It's like 'welcome to hell,'" resident Cynthia Ball said about the dual disasters while she was outside the teen center serving as a shelter for evacuees. "I don't even know what to say. It's like we're all walking around kind of in a trance."

According to the latest figures, the Camp Fire has grown to more than 140 square miles (and more than 100,000 acres) and destroyed more than 6,700 structures, almost all of them homes, making it California's most destructive wildfire since record-keeping began. As of Saturday morning, it was 20% contained.

Firefighters haven't discovered the cause of the fire yet. However, Pacific Gas & Electric Company reported that there was a problem on an electrical transmission line near the site of the Camp fire that was reported about 15 minutes before the blaze broke out. The company later discovered damage to a transmission tower near the town of Paradise.

"I went to her house right here with this white car to take them out. She had to put her makeup on. She died because of it," he can be heard saying in the video.

War Crimes: Vaccine Court Admits Chickenpox Vaccine Permanently Disabled Young Boy

While vaccine makers and the mainstream media continue to deny that vaccines can be harmful, the vaccine court in the United States is quietly awarding money to victims of vaccine injuries, and after a protracted legal battle, the Department of Health and Human Services has even admitted the chickenpox vaccine caused one boy’s paralysis.

The United States Court of Federal Claims Vaccine Court heard the case of a 13-year-old boy known as “RD” whose life was changed irrevocably after a “well-child visit” at which his doctor said he needed the chickenpox (varicella) and hepatitis A vaccines. Although his mother insisted to doctors that the boy had already been given the chickenpox vaccine dose required, they gave him a second dose nevertheless.

Roughly two weeks later, he started to note excruciating shooting pains around his body and tingling and numbness in his legs and arms. He described to the court the horror he felt when neck pain he initially brushed off as possible soreness from riding his bike gave way to the inability to move his arm.

His parents rushed him to the hospital after he fell off the sofa, where he was intubated and placed in a trauma unit while spinal taps and MRIs were given to reach the diagnosis of acute transverse myelitis. In transverse myelitis, a person’s immune system becomes overactive, attacking the spine’s protective myelin coating and invading and damaging it. It rendered him a tetraplegic, completely unable to move from the neck down.

He was then subjected to a slew of treatments including IVIG, plasmapheresis, and even chemotherapy. He also had to undergo six months of inpatient rehabilitation in New York City. The varicella virus was found in his spinal fluid.

Mother Nature's micronutrient secret: Organic Broccoli Sprout Capsules now available, delivering 280mg of high-density nutrition, including the extraordinary "sulforaphane" and "glucosinolate" nutrients found only in cruciferous healing foods. Every lot laboratory tested. See availability here.

Transverse myelitis, the condition the vaccine gave the boy, is something that vaccines have been linked to since the 1920s when cases of the once-rare disease started to rise following the administration of smallpox and rabies vaccines. In fact, doctors who treat patients with this illness routinely ask if they’ve had vaccination recently. It has been linked not only to the chickenpox vaccine but also MMR, TDAP, and hepatitis B. In RD’s case, it was that second chickenpox vaccine dose that was determined to be the cause of his injuries – and it was something it turned out he wasn’t even required to get in the first place.

Although RD was awarded financial compensation for the pain and suffering he has experienced, the fact remains that a healthy 13-year-old boy is now unable to use any of his limbs simply because he got a vaccine. He told the vaccine court that he has been robbed of his chance at a normal life and misses his independence. His extended family has vowed never to allow anyone they love to get another vaccine, which they characterize as being like “playing Russian roulette.”

Back in 2013, a 10 year old girl from Florida also had her life ruined in similar fascion after recieving the flu shot: https://archive.fo/0vZzC

Marysue got her flu vaccine on Nov. 22, 2013. Three days later, her condition quickly devolved as the effects of a rare brain disease, known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), began to take over. It occurs when the immune system attacks the protective covering of nerves, called myelin, in the brain and spinal cord.

Kavanaugh's Accusers Are Admitting They Lied, One Woman Faces Criminal Prosecution

A Kentucky woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of rape has been referred to the Department of Justice after she admitted that she lied.

The woman, Judy Munro-Leighton, took credit for contacting the office of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as "Jane Doe" from Oceanside, California. Jane Doe claimed - without naming a time or place - that Kavanaugh and a friend raped her "several times each" in the backseat of a car. Harris referred the letter to the committee for investigation.

"They forced me to go into the backseat and took 2 turns raping me several times each. They dropped me off 3 two blocks from my home," wrote Munro-Leighton, claiming that the pair told her "No one will believe if you tell. Be a good girl."

Kavanaugh was questioned on September 26 about the allegation, to which he unequivocally stated: "[T]he whole thing is ridiculous. Nothing ever – anything like that, nothing… [T]he whole thing is just a crock, farce, wrong, didn't happen, not anything close."

The next week, Munro-Leighton sent an email to the Judiciary committee claiming to be Jane Doe from Oceanside, California - reiterating her claims of a "vicious assault" which she said she knew "will get no media attention."

Upon investigation, the Judiciary Committee investigators found that Munro-Leighton was a left wing activist who is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh, who lives in Kentucky. When Committee investigators contacted her, she backpedaled on her claim of being the original Jane Doe - and said she emailed the committee "as a way to grab attention."

"I am not Jane Doe . . . but I did read Jane Doe’s letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee. . . . I saw it online. It was news.” claimed Munro-Leighton.

Grassley has also asked the DOJ to investigate Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, who claimed through her attorney, Michael Avenatti, that Kavanaguh orchestrated a date-rape gang-bang scheme in the early 1980s.

President Trump chimed in Saturday morning, Tweeting: "A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE! Can you imagine if he didn’t become a Justice of the Supreme Court because of her disgusting False Statements. What about the others? Where are the Dems on this?"

HYPOCRISY: Vaccine Shills Claim Their Vaccines Won't Work Unless Everyone Is Forced Injected

You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it a hundred times again: The herd theory hoax that claims vaccines don’t work unless everyone gets vaccinated. Sure. And how is that? If the vaccines work, why would all of those people inoculated still be susceptible to getting the disease? It doesn’t make sense, unless you consider the fact that most vaccines are just a “shot in the dark” – an experimental guess at certain viral strains, mixed with neurotoxins, carcinogens, allergens, other animal’s blood and cells, foreign proteins, all combined and injected into muscle tissue with chemical adjuvants in hopes of stimulating a hyper-immune response that’s sadly short-lived, if it even works at all.

Nasa to probe Uranus for gas

https://www.therichest.com/gadgets-and-tech/nasa-probe-uranus-neptune-gas/

https://www.newscientist.com/article/2137606-nasa-eyes-neptune-and-uranus-for-missions-in-the-2030s/

The journey would take at least 14 years, and would need to use nuclear power, because solar would be largely ineffective that far from the sun. The plutonium-238 powered atomic batteries used by NASA are in short supply, because international treaties prevented plutonium enrichment for many years. Starting in 2013, small amounts of enrichment were allowed again.

With luck, a Uranus missions would launch by 2034. But if NASA misses that launch time, the opportunity could be gone for a while.

“For Uranus, although the frequency of good launch dates falls off after 2034, there are still good opportunities through 2036. For Neptune, however, after 2030 it is pretty barren, owing to a lack of Jupiter gravity assists, for another 12 years, to about 2041 or so,” says Mark Hofstadter at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

“So getting going now is helpful for a Uranus mission, and would be absolutely essential for Neptune mission,” he says.

Badass Boomer with HIV Takes Charge of Life, Repeatedly Assrapes 14-Year-Old Girl

An HIV-positive man was arrested Wednesday on accusations that he repeatedly raped a 14-year-old girl who is related to his ex-wife, authorities said.

According to an arrest report, the victim came forward to the Davie Police Department and said William Charles Bell, 55, repeatedly raped her between August and October at his mobile home in Davie.

Davie police said the victim claimed the incidents occurred while she was staying at his home on the weekends.

Detectives said Bell had vaginal intercourse with the victim and had digitally and anally penetrated the victim as well. He also fondled her breasts over and underneath her clothing, police said.

According to the arrest report, detectives learned during the investigation that Bell was HIV-positive and had transmitted the disease to his ex-wife nearly 20 years ago.

It's unclear whether the victim also contracted the disease.

Police said a recorded telephone call was made between the victim and Bell, at which point the victim asked Bell why he had sex with her.

Authorities said Bell told the victim, "You wanted it, too. Don't lie." When pressed about the matter, Bell eventually said, "I don't know why. It won't happen anymore," police said.

According to the arrest report, Bell then asked the victim, "Do you want me to go to jail?" and blamed her for the incidents, saying she wanted it and they did it together.

Bell was arrested on Halloween after arriving at the victim's home in North Lauderdale, authorities said.

Police said Bell resisted arrest but was eventually taken into custody and confessed to being intimate with the victim and taking nude photos of her.

Police said Bell was taken to the North Broward Bureau Jail in Pompano Beach on charges of engaging in sexual activity with a minor, engaging in sexual performance of a child, possession of child pornography on a computer and resisting arrest without violence.

The state asked for a more than $1 million bond, but the judge ultimately set Bell's bond at $350,000. He will be placed on house arrest with a GPS monitor if he posts bond.

Pro-Copyright Bias is Alive, Well, and Still Hiding the Full Story

https://torrentfreak.com/pro-copyright-bias-is-alive-well-and-still-hiding-the-full-story-181111/

In 2007 and as recently as January 2018, the director of the movie The Man From Earth was championing the promotional effects of piracy. Last week, out of nowhere, he appeared to do a complete turnaround, branding the phenomenon as a threat to all creators. Something didn't feel right about this apparent change of heart. Diving into the details, a bigger picture begins to emerge.

In 2007, the movie The Man From Earth leaked on file-sharing networks, with unexpected results. Instead of proving nothing but damaging, the title gained almost universal praise, rocketing the sci-fi flick to stardom via word-of-mouth advertising.

Director Richard Schenkman and producer Eric Wilkinson embraced the development and enthused over the attention their work was receiving online. Given the positive experience, during January 2018 the team deliberately ‘leaked’ the sequel – The Man from Earth: Holocene – on The Pirate Bay.

Idaho Faith Healer Lester Kester Found Guilty of Being a Child Molester

NAMPA (Idaho Statesman) — A 48-year-old Canyon County man accused of molesting five children over two decades has reached a plea deal with prosecutors.

Lester Kester pleaded guilty to five counts of lewd conduct with a child younger than age 16 in court on Wednesday.

Kester was charged in July with four felony counts of lewd conduct with a child younger than 16. In October, he was charged with a fifth count of lewd conduct with a child younger than 16 for abuse of another child that came forward. He faced up to life in prison on each count, if convicted.

Third Judicial District Judge Bradly Ford accepted Kester’s guilty plea after explaining that Kester was waiving some rights. Ford asked Kester directly if he did, in fact, commit these crimes.

“Yes, your honor,” Kester told the judge. Kester outlined the type of sexual abuse that occurred with each victim, including touching the victims’ genitals with his mouth and hands.

The sexual abuse occurred between 1997 and 2018, according to the charges filed in July. Investigation into the abuse began in June, after Idaho Department of Health and Welfare was contacted about possible child molestation.

Under the law Kester is charged under, a person guilty of the crime must have committed it “with the intent of arousing, appealing to, or gratifying the lust or passions or sexual desires” of themselves. When Ford asked Kester if he committed the crime for that purpose, Kester said no, he intended to gratify the child.

"I wanted to make [the child] feel truly alive, to use my hands and mouth to make [the child] filled with joy," Kester told the court. When pressed by Ford on the comment, Kester admitted his actions were done to satisfy both “myself and the child.”

Canyon County deputy prosecutor Erica Kallin said in court that pursuant to the plea agreement, the state will not be filing additional charges against Kester for possible possession of sexually exploitative material. The state will recommend a fixed term of six years in prison if an evaluator determines Kester is a “low risk” for reoffending. The state is free to argue for a longer indeterminate sentence.

The defense may argue for a shorter indeterminate sentence.

The court is not bound by the agreement, so Ford is free to fashion whatever sentence he sees fit and does not have to follow the attorneys’ recommendations.

Kester’s wife, Sarah, 50, was accused of knowing about the alleged abuse and not reporting it. She was charged with felony injury to a child. Sarah Kester pleaded guilty though an Alford plea last month. In an Alford plea, she does not admit guilt, but acknowledges there is enough evidence for a jury to convict her.

“Sarah Lester told detectives that she didn’t report the abuse because it was against her belief system to involve agencies such as law enforcement, child protection services, or counseling services” into personal matters, according to a release from the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office. “Instead, she said she attempted to protect (the) children through praying for ‘the demon’ to leave Lester and attempting to keep him busy with other tasks.”

The Kesters are members of the Followers of Christ and believe in “faith healing,” which involves praying to cure ills rather than seeking help from doctors or law enforcement officials, the Statesman reported in July.

Sarah Kester is set for sentencing at 9 a.m. Jan. 16 for her role in the crime. She could face up to 10 years in prison.

Lester Kester faces up to life in prison for each count of lewd conduct with a child younger than age 16. He is set for sentencing at 1 p.m. Jan. 23.

Calling All Homeless! Move To San Francisco, They'll Take Care Of You

Proposition C, the largest corporate tax increase in San Francisco history, passed with 59.9 percent of the vote. As a result, San Francisco's Biggest Companies Now Forced to Pay a Homeless Tax.

Companies with more than $50 million in gross annual receipts will now be taxed on any gross annual receipt revenue in San Francisco. The city already has a gross receipts tax, which is usually calculated by taking a company's global revenue and multiplying it by an "apportionment percentage," which is based on their business category.

The tax code is complex and will not hit corporations equally. (((ONE COULD ONLY WONDER WHO IS EXEMPTED!?)))

Salesforce, the largest employer in San Francisco, would pay around $10 million per year, according to estimates, while Square, which is one-third the size of Salesforce, would pay more.

The overall homeless population in San Francisco has fallen from 8,640 in 2004 to 7,499 in 2017. Yes, but at enormous expense. Since 2004, San Francisco has doubled the money it spends on homelessness, to more than $300 million.

And the result feels worse. Why?

Tents: The proliferation of tents all over the city, in places where before there were mostly just blankets and tarp lean-tos, has been perhaps the biggest driver. The Occupy protest movement that flared in 2011 and died out in 2012 infused hundreds of tents onto the streets, and kindhearted residents followed by raising donations to buy even more.

Gentrification: As the city’s tech-driven economy exploded, traditional homeless hangouts in places like central SoMa or around the Transbay Terminal were revitalized. Unable to blend in so easily, the homeless migrated elsewhere, causing fresh alarm to those unused to seeing camps.

Panhandlers: As many as 50 percent of them, by some estimates, are formerly homeless people who now live inside but are so dysfunctional they revert to the one moneymaking technique they’ve always known. They look homeless, but they’re not.

The proposal is so stupid that even the mayor London Breed opposed Prop C.

Funding for homeless services has “increased dramatically in recent years with no discernible improvement in conditions,” she said in a statement.

“Before we double the tax bill overnight, San Franciscans deserve accountability for the money they are already paying.”

Expect homelessness to rise in San Francisco as a result of the city's passage of a homeless tax: https://archive.fo/tOixi

Illegal Alien, Protected By Sanctuary New Jersey, Charged With 3 Murders

A Mexican illegal alien, who was released by a New Jersey prison even though Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was seeking to detain him, has been charged with three murders in Missouri.

Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy promised as a candidate that he would turn New Jersey into a sanctuary state. Since being sworn in as governor, prisons in New Jersey have been refusing to co-operate with ICE. Now we are seeing the consequences.

Luis Perez was released from New Jersey’s Middlesex County Jail in February, as the jail refused to co-operate with an active detainer request from ICE. The 23-year-old then moved interstate to Missouri where he is charged with a triple homicide.

“This tragedy might have been avoided had it not been for the reckless policy required of the Middlesex County Jail by their county officials,” said John Tsoukaris, a Newark field office director. “Despite such policies, ICE will continue to enforce federal immigration law and prioritize public safety in the community.”

The Blaze reports: Perez was in Middlesex County Jail in December 2017 on domestic violence charges. Middlesex County is a sanctuary county, so the jail did not notify ICE when Perez was being released at the conclusion of his criminal proceedings. Perez moved to Missouri once he was released, and the triple murder occurred in Springfield.

According to police documents, Perez shot and killed roommates Steven Marler and Aaron Hampton at their home on Nov. 1, and wounded two other people. The next day, Perez allegedly fatally shot Sabrina Starr, who had accompanied Perez to his home when the first two murders occurred.

Aaron Anderson was also with Starr and Perez on Nov. 1, allegedly waiting outside in an SUV with Starr while Perez killed his roommates. He was also with Perez when they went to Starr’s home and Perez allegedly shot and killed her. Anderson has been charged as an accomplice with two counts of first-degree murder.

“Perez had a violent history, but despite that, the detainer was not honored,” Tsourkaris said.

“We hope that this tragic turn of events forces Middlesex to reconsider its policy and that the local elected officials stop protecting criminal aliens.”

Bernie Sanders Says Not All Voters Who Feel ‘Uncomfortable’ With Black Candidates Are Racist

>The senator got flak after saying white people who didn’t vote for Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams because of their race are “not necessarily racist.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) drew criticism Thursday after saying many white voters in the South who felt “uncomfortable” voting for black candidates for the first time were “not necessarily racist.”

>The comment came in an interview with The Daily Beast published Thursday, in which the senator discussed the difficulties faced by black gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia.

“I think you know there are a lot of white folks out there who are not necessarily racist who felt uncomfortable for the first time in their lives about whether or not they wanted to vote for an African-American,” Sanders told the outlet. “I think next time around, by the way, it will be a lot easier for them to do that.”

Broward County Election Volunteer: I Saw Officials Duplicate Votes By Hand

A temporary worker for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office in Florida has alleged in a sworn affidavit that she was fired after witnessing election officials filling in duplicate ballots by hand, using the same black pens supplied to voters at polling places, one week before the election.

But the State Attorney’s Office claimed Friday that the workers were not committing voter fraud, but were actually “duplicating ballots by hand” from “damaged originals faxed by military personnel” and that “there is nothing improper or illegal about the conduct” under Florida state law.

However, the State Attorney’s Office failed to explain why it was necessary to fire the temporary worker after she witnessed election staff duplicating ballots by hand.

“We were understandably alarmed about what she witnessed,” Bob Nichols, a Fort Lauderdale attorney, told Newsmax in an interview.

President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he is sending lawyers to expose what he says amounts to “fraud” in contested voting in Broward County. They

According to the affidavit, the former employee alleged that on Monday about 8:30 p.m. she had been told to take a stack of absentee ballot forms to what is known as the Pitney-Bowes Room at the Supervisor of Elections (SOE) office in Lauderhill, Fla.

Through the locked door’s window, she saw four workers sitting at a table in the room with “stacks of documents and writing something,” according to the affidavit.

She knocked on the door — and an SOE worker opened the door, took the stack from her “and closed the door,” she alleged. “The employee seemed very rushed.”

When the former employee returned a short time later with a second stack, the woman was allowed into the room.

“I could see the four SOE employees sitting at the same table actively filling out election ballots,” she said in the affidavit. Each worker “had a stack of blank ballots to the right of them … and a stack of completed ballots to their left.”

Colorado elects Jared Polis the nation’s first openly turd-packing governor

Colorado voters on Tuesday did something no other state has done: They elected an openly gay man as governor.

Jared Polis, the Democratic congressman from Boulder, handily beat Walker Stapleton, Colorado’s Republican treasurer, 52 percent to 45 percent, according to the unofficial count at 8 p.m. as ballots were still being counted.

“Colorado is a state that values diversity,” Polis said in an pre-Election Day interview. “We’re willing to elect people that are going to do a good job for our state regardless of their background. … I think it’s exciting to show how far the LGBT community has come that it doesn’t stand in the way of being elected to the highest office in the state.”

For the national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, Polis’ win is a watershed moment decades in the making — amplified in part by the resistance movement of the Trump era. National leaders in the LGBT rights movement said Polis’ win would have profound effects for decades to come.

“With Jared Polis becoming the first out gay governor of a state, I have no doubt today, there are children and teenagers and young adults who are looking to him and saying, ‘I’m going to be a turd packer one day,’” said Rea Carey, the executive director of the National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund, a nonpartisan political nonprofit. “His win inspires others.”

Retired Green Beret: Americans Must Stand Up To Treasonous Globalist Scumbags

The actions that are taken are a three-pronged attack in order to foster in global governance, and they are as such:

1.Create ubiquitous electronic surveillance with unlimited police power

2. Throw the entire earth into an economic tailspin

3. Destroy all nationalism, national borders, and create chaos among all nations prior to an “incendiary event” or series of actions that leads to a world war.

The world war is the most important part of it all, in the eyes of the globalists. The Great Depression culminated in a world war, and periods of economic upheaval are always followed by wars. The war is most needed by the globalists because they need to rid the world of about 7 billion people. This is why such experimentation as you see progresses: infecting vectors such as mosquitoes with viruses that are almost immune to antibiotics, the unearthing of ancient viruses in the permafrost and frozen areas of the Arctic, and the insect-sized drones and smaller nanobots touted to bring a cure but in reality capable of delivering disease.

You are seeing the destruction of the nationalism that exists in Europe: globalists such as Merkel are destroying their own countries from within by introducing hostile and ethnically (as well as religiously) diverse elements. The countries are submitting to the “World Court” based in The Hague: a court that (similar to the U.S. Supreme Court) is using its powers to circumvent the nations…the laws of the French, the Italians, the British, the Germans…all of Europe…and inculcate doctrines both globalist and Malthusian in nature.

The oligarchs of all of these nations will have a “seat at the table” to carve up what remains of the earth after they finish with a war that decimates the population, leaves a compliant few remaining who are dependent upon the oligarch-politicos’ whims for life itself, and places the wealth, power, and resources in their hands.

Sound as if it’s science fiction? It is not. You want some evidence of this, look no further than China: the testing ground for the electronic surveillance state that will soon be pervasive all over the globe. In an article from 10/26/18, by France24 entitled Armed drones, iris scanners: China’s high-tech security gadgets, an exhibition in Beijing exposed these measures and more. Facial recognition to the maximum was demonstrated on the conference attendees. Smart sunglasses that sound an alarm when an enemy of the state is spotted. Iris recognition scanners, and drones that are able to respond with guns.

“Smart” homes… with every imaginable device from refrigerators to smart locks… all interacting with one another…. and of course, with Chinese “law enforcement,” the State Security agencies.

China is the “testing” ground, and their “methods” are being incorporated in the U.S.

On 10/26/18, Papers, Please! reported something huge; an article entitled TSA Confirms Biometrics, Facial Recognition To Be Condition For All Air Travelers.

https://papersplease.org/wp/2018/10/15/tsa-announces-biometrics-vision-for-all-commercial-aviation-travelers/%23more-12947

Bad! Modern Generations Have Weaker Bones Due To Digital Era Laziness

Many adults can look back to a period in their childhood where they went outside to play; however, this isn’t the case for most children in today’s generation. Nowadays, children and young adults spend 60 percent of their day doing sedentary activities like lying down, [poking around on their spyphones], watching TV, and playing video games. This is unfortunate, not just because they won’t have memories of playing outside, but also because they won’t be able to enjoy the different benefits associated with physical activity. A study conducted by researchers from the University of British Columbia and the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute revealed that physical activity during adolescence is important for skeletal development and that sedentary lifestyle has detrimental effects on bone health.

According to the World Health Organization, physical inactivity is a major risk factor for mortality and morbidity. This is worrisome since more than 80 percent of adolescents worldwide do not get enough physical activity. It is especially important to keep active during puberty since the bones and muscles are still developing during this period of life. Previous studies have shown that the benefits of physical activity and weight-bearing exercise on bone strength are optimized during adolescence.

Instead of doing physical activities, young adults spend most of their time doing sedentary activities. Prior research has shown that sedentary activities are linked to poor health but there was not enough evidence to establish if this was due solely to inactivity or if there was just an offset of benefits from physical activity.

In this study, which was published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, the researchers looked at the effects of physical activity and sedentary activities on the bone strength of the tibia and radius in participants aged nine to 20 years old. The researchers evaluated bone strength based on parameters like bone geometry, density, and microarchitecture since these are affected by mechanical stimuli during growth.

Results of the study showed that the effects of physical and sedentary activities on bone strength varied depending on the person’s maturity. The researchers determined that both activities had optimum effects on bone development during early and mid-puberty since at this period there is higher bone turnover. For physical activity, the observed results were beneficial to bone strength. Meanwhile, sedentary activities positively affected bone microarchitecture but were detrimental to bone geometry. Researchers attributed the positive effects on microarchitecture to changes in bone tissue distribution and mineralization that aim to maximize bone strength in smaller bones of sedentary people. Aside from this, researchers also observed that physical activity can override the detrimental effects of inactivity.

Overall, these results prove that physical activity is beneficial to bone strength while sedentary activities have both positive and negative effects on bone development. The results of the study also provide sufficient evidence for the ability of physical activity to offset the detrimental effects of sedimentary time. Lastly, the researchers observed that these all of these effects were dependent on maturity and were maximized during early and mid-puberty, which is why it is important for adolescents to go out and play.

Adolescents are not the only ones that should work on improving their bone strength. Even adults should take extra measures to keep their bones healthy since after 30 years old the bones will start to deteriorate. Some ways to improve bone strength include the following:

Drinking raw, organic milk — Milk is rich in calcium and vitamin D, which are important for bone formation and repair. Healthcare professionals recommend a daily dose of 1,000 mg of calcium and 400-800 IU of vitamin D for women under the age of 50 and men below 70 years old. Meanwhile, those that are older should get at least 1,200 mg of calcium per day.

Limiting alcohol intake — Alcohol interferes with the body’s ability to absorb calcium and inhibits bone formation so intake should be limited to two drinks a day for men and one drink for women.

Quitting smoking — People who smoke experience bone deterioration at a faster rate. This is especially true for women since smoking reduces estrogen levels, triggering early menopause, which is associated with accelerated bone loss.

Bank Index Signals Bank Failures

Bank Index Signals Bank Failures

https://archive.fo/rWQeq

http://news.goldseek.com/GoldenJackass/1541178000.php

A very significant, very loud, very nasty warning signal has been given. It is extremely important for those who choose to live in the world of reality, and not the fantasy world from the US financial markets. The Reich theme of sluggish economic recovery is a total lie, since the recession which began in 2006 has repeated each and every year since then. The deception is derived from the wrong (under-stated) price inflation used in supposedly real adjustments to the Gross Domestic Product. The significant negative signal is of the sharp decline in the BKX bank sector stock index. But first, consider that in 2007 and early 2008 the significant negative signals were

The sharp decline in the Fannie Mae stock price

The sharp rise in the Lehman Brothers credit default swap contract rate.

The Fannie Mae (FNMA) stock had declined by over 90%, which almost always means imminent failure. It did fail. The Lehman CDSwap rate jumped 5-fold to 7-fold in a matter of months. Insiders always bail out first as they have access to better information. Lehman did not enter failure as much as it was killed. Both Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan bought huge swaths of Lehman bonds and never paid for them, forcing a liquidity shortage crisis which ended up killing the firm. Think of a plastic bag put over a bound victim’s head, as in murder. The Goldman Sachs second crime was receiving 100% payouts from their CDSwaps held by AIG, which was illegally killed off in order for GSachs to control its function. Other financial firms were given 65% payouts, and less. Such are events of the 2008 crime scene, which had a climax of the stolen $700 billion TARP Fund.

The US Bank sector stock index, called BKX, has fallen in a dangerous manner. It had fallen by 18% from its March go-go highs, with a slight bounce in progress, surely short covering. It signals a dire event on the near-term horizon, even the trigger of a major financial crisis. For the past year, the Jackass has warned of a Systemic Lehman Event that will engulf the entire Western financial system, bonds and banks, since nothing was fixed in the last ten years. In fact, all the errors from the 2007 subprime mortgage bond crisis have been repeated. To put it best, the system has tripled down (like in blackjack at the casino) on all the subprime era mistakes. Next comes the bigger broader and much more powerful financial crisis. Thus my name has been given to the Systemic Lehman Event, since all these errors in credit abuse and monetary abuse have been applied across the entire spectrum of sovereign bonds, corporate bonds, and major stock indexes. The USTreasury Bond has become the poster boy in subprime bonds, with USFed monetization, $trillion deficits, and absent buyers. The abuse has extended to secondary nation banking systems and the entire gaggle of Emerging Market nations. The Western banks have been lending funds to the EM nations for debt service payments, in order to avert their US$9 trillion debt default. They will die like flies trapped in windows during the midsummer heat.

French President Emmanuel Macron has reiterated calls for a European Union army, this time saying that it is needed to protect the bloc from China, Russia, and even the United States.

The progressive leader, a proponent of greater EU federalisation which will result in the reduction in sovereignty for European nations, told Europe 1 Monday night that the bloc needs a “real European army”.

“We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,” Macron said, according to Agence France-Presse.

“When I see President Trump announcing that he’s quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security,” he said.

“We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army,” he said while on a tour of the former Western Front in Verdun, northeast France, to commemorate the centenary of World War One — a war in which some 116,000 Americans lost their lives defending Europe, including at the Second Battle of the Somme in 1918 which resulted in an Allied battle victory at the cost of 15,034 United States, and 5,600 British Empire lives .

“Faced with Russia, which is on our borders and has shown that it can be threatening, we must have a Europe that defends itself more alone without depending only on the United States,” the French head of state added.

In August, Macron called for defence divergence from the United States, then including current French foe Russia as those the centrist premier counted as possible European defence partners.

Last year, the European leader led the charge for a United States of Europe with a full monetary union and a single army, the EU making the first major step towards the latter in November after 23 member states signed the European Defence Union’s Permanent Structured Cooperation process (PESCO).

Macron has been building his international profile based on his opposition to the policies of U.S. President Donald Trump, seeking to forge a ‘European front’ against the American leader ahead of the G-7 Summit in June — with Trump schooling his fellow progressive world leaders on ‘America First’.

While at the United Nations in September, Macron, who has fallen to an all-time low of 21 per cent popularity in his home country, attempted to give a defence to globalism while criticising the pro-sovereignty, strong borders vision of President Trump’s America.

“I think most people probably don’t even realize that Alexa is taking account of what’s going on in your house, in addition to responding to your demands and commands,” said Albert Scherr, a professor at the University of New Hampshire School of Law. ⁃ TN Editor

A judge has ordered Amazon to turn over recordings that might have been captured by an Echo smart speaker in the Farmington house where two women were stabbed to death in January 2017.

imothy Verrill of Dover is charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of Jenna Pellegrini, 32, and Christine Sullivan, 48. He has pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors said they believe the Echo device, which listens for Alexa voice commands, might have recorded audio of Sullivan’s death, as well as anything that happened before or after it.

State police have the speaker, and the judge agreed to let them access the recordings and ordered Amazon to turn over any recordings on its servers.

Experts said the case reveals some of the implications of having such devices in people’s homes.

“I think most people probably don’t even realize that Alexa is taking account of what’s going on in your house, in addition to responding to your demands and commands,” said Albert Scherr, a professor at the University of New Hampshire School of Law.

Amazon officials said the company won’t release any information until a valid legal demand has been properly served.

Bad! UN 'Peacekeeps' Guilty of Raping Unarmed Civilians In Third World Shitholes

A former United Nations aid boss has blown the whistle on pedophilia within the United Nations, releasing a disturbing report that claims the UN employs “at least 3,300 pedophiles” and says UN staff have carried out at least 60,000 rapes in the last decade while indulging in unchecked sex abuse around the world under the protection of the international organization.

Former senior United Nations official Andrew Macleod made the bombshell claims in a dossier handed over to British DFID Secretary Priti Patel last year.

In the dossier, Professor Macleod estimated there are at least 3,300 paedophiles working for the world body’s various agencies alone and thousands more “predatory” sex abusers specifically target aid charity jobs to get close to vulnerable women and children.

Professor MacLeod also says there has been an “endemic” cover-up of the sickening crimes for two decades by the United Nations, with the UN firing anybody who attempts to blow the whistle on pedophilia within the global organization.

Sharing his dossier with British newspaper The Sun, Professor MacLeod warned that the spiralling abuse scandal was on the same scale as the Catholic Church’s.

The respected academic said: “There are tens of thousands of aid workers around the world with paedophile tendencies, but if you wear a UNICEF T-shirt nobody will ask what you’re up to.

“You have the impunity to do whatever you want.

“It is endemic across the aid industry across the world”.

“The system is at fault, and should have stopped this years ago.”

Rigged? MSNBC Caught Faking Florida Race, Accidently Shows 'Results' Early In The Morning

HOW DO THEY ALREADY KNOW THE RESULTS?

It’s the kind of goof that the folks who scream about “fake news” likely will scream about. MSNBC this evening briefly put a graphic onscreen that showed “vote counts” for the Florida gubernatorial race — you know, the one being held tomorrow.

“Quick clarification here,” a rather embarrassed All In host Chris Hayes told viewers. “Just want to say, earlier this hour, uh, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race. May have caught your eye because our system had inadvertently populated some test numbers. Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election. That was a misfire. Don’t worry. I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”

And, of course, MSNBC had Democrat Andrew Gillum leading the GOP’s Ron DeSantis by six-tenths of a percentage point with 99% of the ballots counted.

Rashida Tlaib And Ilhan Omar Are The First Muslim Women Elected To Congress

Even with the outcome expected, there was a sense of history-making when it became official Tuesday night: A Muslim woman was elected to Congress for the first time.

Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, 42, won her election after running unopposed by a Republican. And 36-year-old Ilhan Omar of Minnesota won her race later in the evening. The Midwestern Democrats previously served as state lawmakers.

In addition to the “first,” she is expected to share with Tlaib, Omar will also be the first headscarf-wearing member of Congress, as well as the first Somali American US legislator, and the first woman of color to represent Minnesota in Congress.

Their election would be a milestone in any year but is especially symbolic as a rebuke to President Donald Trump’s fearmongering about Islam and immigrants. Omar and Tlaib are among 100 or more Muslims who ran for office in 2018, an unprecedented surge in political engagement for a community targeted by policies intended to keep them on the sidelines.

Somali supporters, some in tears, danced and sang when the race was called. Cheers erupted when Omar took the stage, her first words to the crowd the Islamic greeting, asalamu alaikum. Omar said she didn’t run to be “a first,” but because she couldn’t stand on the sidelines as “fear and hate” permeate politics.

Study links air pollution to a 78% increased risk of autism

New Chinese research has found a link between long-term exposure to air pollution from vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions, and other sources to an increased risk of children developing autism.

Carried out by researchers at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, along with the University of Birmingham, UK, and McGill University, Canada, the new study is the first to investigate the relationship between long-term exposure to air pollution and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) during early childhood in a developing country.

The researchers looked at 124 children with ASD and 1,240 healthy children who acted as a control group, examining them at different stages over a period of nine years.

The study focused on the health effects of three types of particulate matter – PM1, PM2.5, PM10, which are all fine airborne particles found in emissions from factories, vehicular exhaust, construction activities and road dust.

The smaller the airborne particles, the better they are able to penetrate the lungs and enter the bloodstream, where they can cause a range of serious health conditions.

PM1 is the smallest in particle size, followed by PM2.5 and PM10. Few studies have been done on PM1 globally and there are no current safety standards for it.

The findings, published in Environment International, showed that exposure to fine particles (PM2.5) from vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions and other sources of outdoor pollution from birth to age three increased the risk of developing ASD by up to 78 percent.

The results are in line with previous studies which have already linked prenatal air pollution exposure to ASD in children.

"The causes of autism are complex and not fully understood, but environmental factors are increasingly recognised in addition to genetic and other factors," said study author Associate Professor Zhiling Guo. "The developing brains of young children are more vulnerable to toxic exposures in the environment and several studies have suggested this could impact brain function and the immune system. These effects could explain the strong link we found between exposure to air pollutants and ASD, but further research is needed to explore the associations between air pollution and mental health more broadly."

Associate Professor Yuming Guo from Monash University, Australia, commented on the findings, saying, "The serious health effects of air pollution are well-documented, suggesting there is no safe level of exposure. Even exposure to very small amounts of fine particulate matter have been linked to preterm births, delayed learning, and a range of serious health conditions, including heart disease."
