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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Eastern Washington's Sky Glows Purple Astounding Locals

https://thegoldwater.com/news/42260-Eastern-Washington-s-Sky-Glows-Purple-Astounding-Locals

Everyone has seen a beautiful sunset at least once in their lives, and when someone tries to tell you about how the sky was "so colorful" it is easy to brush off as an exaggeration. But when residents in Finley, Washington began reporting the sky had turned purple and had the photographs to prove it, the strange phenomenon began to draw some national attention.

Local news describes the sight as something out of "The X-Files" and used words like "pink and purple glow" to describe the night sky near Tri-Cities near Washington state's eastern border. When they said purple, they meant it. This is no blend of orange and yellow and red that most typical sunsets emit, this was a pure royal purple illuminating the sky as if it were the sky itself that had changed color.

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."

DEA Urged To Ban Kratom By Dept. Of Health & Human Services

It seems that the war for kratom has been suddenly and with little warning been kicked into overdrive. The Department of Health and Human Services has recommended a ban on two of the natural components found within kratom that would effectively ban all uses for kratom, possession and of course ingestion in a similar way as how industrial uses of hemp were illegal for decades after marijuana was placed on schedule I.

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.”

‘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.”

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.

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.

Macron calls nationalism a 'betrayal of patriotism' during Armistice Day remarks

French President Emmanuel Macron tore into “nationalism” in an apparent jab at President Trump during his Armistice Day remarks in Paris.

Speaking Sunday at the Arc de Triomphe beside Trump and other world leaders, Macron decried nationalism as “a betrayal of patriotism.”

“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism,” Macron said. “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By saying our interests first … we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what gives it grace, and what is essential: its moral values."

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!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 13, 2018

Trump's rampage against Macron continues. The president slammed his French counterpart for his low approval rating, as well as France's high unemployment. Furthermore, in response to Macron's "nationalist" snub, Trump pointed out that "there is no more nationalist country" than France…

The problem is that Emmanuel suffers from a very low Approval Rating in France, 26%, and an unemployment rate of almost 10%. He was just trying to get onto another subject. By the way, there is no country more Nationalist than France, very proud people-and rightfully so!……..

…before adding a spin on his classic slogan.

The tweets appear to have stopped…for now, at least. Meanwhile, Macron's office has refused to comment on Trump's claims.

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.”

“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.

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.”

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.

$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.

3 major fires by the numbers

Firefighters are battling three major wildfires in California. Here's a breakdown by the numbers as of Saturday evening, according to Cal Fire and local officials.

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!

E-cigarette flavors are good for public health. Why is the FDA cracking down on them?

Next week, the Food and Drug Administration will announce a ban on the sale of most e-cigarette flavors in tens of thousands of convenience stores and gas stations, according to the Washington Post.

It will be one of a series of measures to tackle the alleged "epidemic" levels of youth vaping in America's high schools. Groups like Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and now apparently the FDA have singled out so-called "kid-appealing" e-cigarette flavors like fruits, sweets, and desserts as one of the leading causes of a spike in teen vaping over the past year.

According to e-cigarette industry critics, these flavors are explicitly targeting kids, recruiting a new generation of nicotine addicts, and are of little interest or help to adult smokers looking to kick their habit by switching to vaping.

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.”

PLANS TO MICROCHIP UK WORKERS SPARK PRIVACY CONCERNS

The prospect of UK firms implanting their staff with microchips in order to improve security and efficiency has raised concerns among trade unions.

Several legal and financial firms in the UK are reportedly in discussions with a company responsible for fitting thousands of people with chips in Scandinavia.

The chips, which are about the size of a grain of rice, are usually implanted beneath the skin between the thumb and forefinger and use radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to allow people to replace physical key cards, IDs and even train tickets.

Huge white truffle sells for €85,000 at Italian auction

he annual auction held in the region near Turin saw the unusually large white truffle sold at a price that would value it at €100 per gramme.

"The price of this exceptional truffle does not correspond to the market price, which this year is around €350 for 100 grammes," the event's spokeswoman told AFP.

"What explains this high bid is the fact that the sale is for charity and also the rarity of an 850-gram truffle because the bigger the truffle the more valuable it is."

Owners of ROM sites ordered to pay Nintendo more than $12 million

Back in July, news broke that Nintendo had filed lawsuits against Jacob Mathias, the owner of the ROM-hosting sites LoveROMs.com and LoveRetro.co, as those sites had been hosting unauthorized Nintendo games for others to download and play through an emulator. Now, Mathias and his wife have been ordered to pay the gaming giant more than $12 million in damages.

A final judgment by United States District Court Judge Jennifer G. Zipps in a federal district court in Arizona has awarded Nintendo $12.23 million, with both parties responsible for paying their own legal fees.

According to TorrentFreak, Jacob Mathias and wife Cristian Mathias admitted that hosting the two websites “constituted direct and indirect copyright and trademark infringement, which caused Nintendo irreparable injury.” Furthermore, the two must relinquish all emulators and Nintendo games in their possession, and as requested in Nintendo’s original lawsuit filing, the rights to both websites will be transferred to Nintendo as well.

Though many believe that Melania Trump is silent and kind, do not mistake for a minute that she is anything unlike Nancy Reagan or Hillary Clinton during their respective stints as First Lady when it comes to staffing.

In a surprise move, the current First Lady has made it known via her spokesperson that she believes Ms. Mira Ricardel, a consultant working for National Security Adviser Mr. John Bolton, should be dismissed.

"It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that (Ricardel) no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House," the first lady's communications director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

FL - Parkland Shooter Registers To Vote From Jail Drawing Rage From Victim's Father

https://thegoldwater.com/news/42255-FL-Parkland-Shooter-Registers-To-Vote-From-Jail-Drawing-Rage-From-Victim-s-Father

The start of 2018 was marred by the tragic school shooting which claimed the lives of 17 Florida students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The shooting was carried out by a former student of the high school, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz on February 14, 2018. Reports from students said Cruz had been bullied and had once been turned down by a girl who embarrassed him prior to his killing spree.

The shooting injured 17 others and Cruz is currently sitting in Broward County jail while he is tried for 17 counts of premeditated murder and 17 counts of attempted murder. After the shooting, Cruz fled the scene but was arrested by deputies without incident two hours later.

500 cows, three luxury cars and $10,000. That is how much a wealthy businessman in Sudan paid for a 16-year-old child bride auctioned on Facebook. Rumors on social media say the traders used Facebook live to conduct the auction with multiple bidders. For anyone that has seen the movie Taken (the first one) with Liam Neeson and believes that the (attention spoiler) girl auction at the end is fiction, think again.

Boeing Failed To Disclose Dangerous Feature Suspected Of Being Behind Fatal Lion Air Crash

https://thegoldwater.com/news/42242-Boeing-Failed-To-Disclose-Dangerous-Feature-Suspected-Of-Being-Behind-Fatal-Lion-Air-Crash

Investigators say the problem lies with the automated stall-prevention system Boeing added to its 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9. The system is supposed to help the flight's pilots avoid mistakenly stalling the aircraft by raising the nose too quickly. The problem lies when the system malfunctions and forces the nose downward unexpectedly so strongly that the flight goes into an unrecoverable nosedive.

Goldman Sachs cuts Apple iPhone estimates on negative supplier outlook

Goldman Sachs estimates Apple will produce 6 percent fewer iPhones next year than previously expected, after key supplier Lumentum reduced its shipment outlook, according to a report Tuesday.

"We are concerned that end demand for new iPhone models is deteriorating," Goldman said in the note. "We note this could easily right itself given the bulk of demand comes in late December but we feel more prudent sell through forecasts are warranted due to the timing and magnitude of this warning."

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.

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.

Twitter Pelts Trump With Photos Of Obama In The Rain After He Ditches Cemetery Visit

President dodges trip to honor U.S. war dead in France due to weather. Critics show how another leader behaved.

Critics were stunned that President Donald Trump skipped a visit Saturday to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France – where U.S. war dead were being honored – because of rain. They zapped him with a a series of tweets showing Barack Obama in downpours honoring those who fought in wars in what was bound to be particularly galling to the president.

As many as 1,800 American soldiers killed in the World War I battle of Belleau Wood are buried in the French cemetery. But Trump ditched his planned visit and stayed in his hotel room because of unspecified “scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather,” according to a White House statement. Instead, a delegation led by Chief of Staff John Kelly traveled to the cemetery 50 miles outside of Paris by car. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron were among the world leaders who made the trip.

Finland and Norway tell airline pilots to fly without GPS,Russians are jamming it

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.

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."

https://web.archive.org/web/20181113204957/https://www.yahoo.com/news/both-sides-gaza-border-residents-prepare-worst-143014398.html

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.

https://archive.fo/RsVml

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.

AMC Is Running Into the Same Problems as MoviePass

AMC is raising the price of Stubs A-List, its ticket subscription service, by up to $4 a month in the 15 states where it is most popular. It's an indication the theater operator has discovered, just like MoviePass before it, that the more moviegoers use the service the less sustainable the concept is.

AMC says it won't whipsaw subscribers the way its rival did by changing the terms and benefits seemingly every few days, but AMC's decision to increase A-List's price suggests that, although moviegoers like these deals and they're having an impact on the way tickets are sold, they may not be best for the long-term health of the provider.

President Trump Says Secret Service Wouldn't Allow Him To Attend WW1 Ceremony

The celebration included massive shows and performances including loudspeaker music and thousands of poppies and night lights. Sadly, President Trump was forced to cancel his visit to the wondrous ceremony that marked a century since the "War to end all wars". He tweeted about the fault of the cancellation landing upon the Secret Service but the tweet was quickly deleted. "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 the pouring rain! Little reported-Fake News!" Trump Tweeted.

Valve rewards man $20,000 for discovering unlimited free game codes bug

Valve has rewarded a man with $20,000 after he discovered a bug which let people generate thousands of free codes at once for any game.

The flaw was rooted out by security researcher Artem Moskowsky who reported it to Valve on August 7.

Valve fixed the issue weeks ago and it has since been made public via HackerOne.

By changing a single parameter, any person with a developer account on the portal could generate thousands of activation keys simultaneously for any other game hosted by Steam.

Phil Spencer Says Streaming Is Further Out for Mass Market; Game Pass Has Millions of Subscribers

After talking on the X018 live stream about the ongoing effort to improve Windows Store and tailor it towards gamers, Phil Spencer, Executive VP of Gaming at Microsoft, had the usual round of interviews with the local Mexican press.

LevelUp posted a rather long video interview with him on YouTube. Among various talking points, Spencer highlighted that while Game Pass is a focus for Microsoft and there are ‘millions’ of subscribers, it’s ultimately just another option to get a game in addition to the traditional purchase, which won’t be replaced.

Intel's 5G modem will land in the second half of 2019

We're on the cusp of the 5G revolution, as big players like Qualcomm and Huawei would like us to believe. Not to be left out in the cold, Intel has sped up the timeline for the release of its 5G modem, which it calls the XMM 8160. According to the company, partners can expect to get their hands on the 8160 in the second half of next year.

Intel claims that the multi-mode XMM 8160 will support up to 6Gbps — including millimeter wave (mmWave) and FDD/TDD bands that span from 600Mhz to 6Ghz. That 6Gbps number puts the 8160 at "three to six times faster than the latest LTE modems available today." And being multi-mode, it will support both standalone and non-standalone 5G, 4G, 3G, and even legacy 2G.

Consumers won't see devices with the XMM 8160 until 2020 at the earliest, since it launches to partners in H2 2019.

Nvidia Launches Quadro RTX 4000 GPU With 2,304 CUDA Cores

Nvidia's Quadro RTX series continued growing today with the addition of the Quadro RTX 4000 professional graphics card powered by the company's most recent Turing architecture.

The Quadro RTX 4000 serves as the midrange model in Nvidia's Quadro RTX family, which is currently comprised of the Quadro RTX 8000, RTX 6000 and RTX 5000. Similar to the GeForce GTX 2080 and the Quadro RTX 5000, the new Quadro RTX 4000 is built around Nvidia's Turing TU104 silicon that's produced under TSMC's 12nm FinFET manufacturing process. However, Nvidia has disabled a couple of Streaming Multiprocessors to meet the target shader count.

The Quadro RTX 4000 comes equipped with 2,304 CUDA cores, 288 dedicated Tensor cores for AI and 26 RT cores for real-time ray tracing applications. Unfortunately, Nvidia hasn't yet revealed the graphics card's operating frequency. The chipmaker also outfitted the Quadro RTX 4000 with 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory bus. Nvidia says the Quadro RTX 4000 can deliver up to 7.1 TFLOPS of single precision (FP32) performance, 6 GigaRays/sec of ray tracing performance and 43 Tera RTX-OPS.

Galaxy S10 May Skip the Notch for an Infinity-O Display

We’re still months away from Samsung announcing the Galaxy S10, but our first batch of rumors from a reliable source are here. Leaker @evleaks provided a “few preliminary” details about the S10’s display, cameras, fingerprint reader, and Android status.

For display news, the rumor states that the Galaxy S10 will feature a “punch hole,” which could be in reference to one of the prototype display designs that Samsung showed off last week. Remember this post, where we showed you Samsung’s first notch displays? One of the prototypes was called Infinity-O based on the fact that it included a “O” cutout to the left side of the display, rather than a notch. A “punch hole” description sure does match up to that styling, rather than a drop down notch like we have seen from others.

In addition to the possibly-huge display news, Blass says to expect an ultrasonic, in-display fingerprint reader, three rear cameras (standard, wide, and telephoto lenses), and Android Pie underneath Samsung’s new One UI.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A heartwarming moment emerged from the Remembrance festivities which quickly went viral on French television. When French President Emmanuel Macron greeted several veterans, one of them had brought his mother with him, who is turning 101 tomorrow.

She was clearly star-struck at getting to meet the French President and said: “Mr. Macron, this is impossible. To see you and to shake the hand of the President of the Republic, an old lady like me, this is fantastic. You’re gonna make me cry.”

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.

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

https:// web.archive.org/web/20180921124309/https:// 8ch.net/prepare/res/22.html

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.

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.”

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.

>In a disturbing true story first published by Natural News, Dr. Mikovits found evidence “that deadly retroviruses have been transmitted to 25 million Americans through vaccines.”

>Dr. Mikovits worked with human retroviruses and focused on immunotherapy research and HIV. In 2009, she was doing research on neurological diseases, including autism, when she discovered many of her study subjects were suffering from serious medical issues. These issues included cancer, motor-neuron disorders and chronic fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

The statement also said that an active administrative probe is being carried out by the Dayton Police Department’s Professional Standards Bureau aside from the criminal case progresses.

A homeowner accused Laprath, then off-duty of breaking into his house located on Strathaven Drive early Sunday.

The homeowner called 911 and narrated: “He kicked my front door wide open. My wife and daughter are freaked out and so am I. He came right after me and tried to tackle me, but I got away and got on top of him and I’m sitting on top of him now.”

Both the homeowner and arresting officers felt that Laprath was intoxicated at that time and may have just gone into the said home by mistake.

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.”

https://thegoldwater.com/news/42193-FL-Trump-Claims-Honest-Vote-Count-Is-No-Longer-Possible

Just as many conservative voices on social media, US President Donald Trump has now also lambasted the Florida recount as being ‘unfair.’

The US President called Florida ballots from the midterm election “massively infected” and said recounts should end in races for governor and US Senate. According to the White House, Republican Rick Scott, the governor who campaigned to unseat Democratic Senator Bill Nelson, and Republican Ron DeSantis, the House member running for governor against Democrat Andrew Gillum, should each be declared the winner in their races.

“An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected.” Trump tweeted.

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.

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.”

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.

ROGER STONE: CORSI ‘SQUEEZED HARD’ BY MUELLER BUT REFUSES TO BREAK

Conservative operative Roger Stone believes journalist Jerome Corsi is being unfairly targeted by special counsel Robert Mueller, he told The Daily Caller in a statement.

“Where is the Russian collusion? Where is the Wikileaks collaboration? Where is proof that I knew about the theft or content of John Podesta’s emails or the content or the source of any of the allegedly hacked or stolen e-mails published by Wikileaks?” Stone asked.

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.

Ireland - Multiple Aircraft Sightings of “UFO” Trigger An Aviation Probe

https://thegoldwater.com/news/42169-Ireland-Multiple-Aircraft-Sightings-of-UFO-Trigger-An-Aviation-Probe

Pilots reported seeing what appears to be a UFO off the coast of Ireland, and because of such possible sighting, the Irish Aviation Authority is investigating the incident.

Shannon Air Traffic Control first got a call from a British Airways pilot flying from Montreal to Heathrow over County Kerry at around 6:47 a.m. on November 9.

The pilot said that the object on question came up alongside the plane before disappearing at “a very high speed.” The pilot also said that the object came up on the aircraft’s left-hand side and then quickly veered to the north.

Thousands rally in Rome over Italy's 'anti-migrant' decree

Several thousand protesters rallied in Rome on Saturday to protest against what they criticised as unfair anti-migrant policies promoted by far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

Waving banners with slogans "Black lives matter" and "Welcome for all; Open the borders", leftists joined anti-racism activists who organisers said came from 50 cities to defend migrants and protest a recent decree on asylum rights.

Italy's Senate, backed by Salvini's Northern League party and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, voted to clear the way for a decree that makes it easier to expel migrants and strip some of them of Italian citizenship.

Incoming N.J. Dem lawmaker says she won't vote for Pelosi as Speaker

Rep.-elect Mikie Sherrill (D-N.J.) said Monday that she will not be voting for current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to serve as Speaker.

"I have been talking about how important it is we have new leadership in Congress right now," Sherrill told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Monday. "And so I won’t be voting for Nancy Pelosi."

"But she has been a very effective Speaker to this point," she added.

"I do think it is important we move forward with new leadership."

There has been some opposition against Pelosi among Democrats, threatening to undercut her run for Speaker.

However, Democratic House leadership has supported Pelosi and on Sunday, the top three Democrats on the House's investigative committees came out in support of her.
