As I have said before, I don't always agree with articles I post. I do think it's important to know what others around the US and globe are saying. I believe the people who come here are smart enough to use discernment when reading news articles.
I search the news wires from all over, in hopes to find news that gives us a better understanding of the world we live in. Our MSM just spoon feeds us what they want us to know/think.
Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to come here and catch up.
If you find news stories that we have missed, feel free to add them to the current daily thread with links.

Obama-Era State Department Official Provides More Evidence Of FISA Abuse thefederalist.com/2019/05/21/obama-era-state-department-official-provides-more-evidence-of-fisa-abuse/ The most recent addition came last week when news broke that Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec met with dossier author Christopher Steele on October 11, 2016—two weeks before the DOJ and FBI relied on the Steele dossier to obtain a FISA surveillance order targeting Page. Notes Kavalec took memorializing her meeting with the former MI6 spy, and reports that Kavalec shared with the FBI details of her confab with Steele, provide more proof that Obama administration officials and career DOJ and FBI employees abused the FISA court process.
I believe we are just days away from receiving the most compelling evidence in the biggest political scandal ever seen in American history. CST
inner sauce: Florida congressman Matt Gaetz revealed Monday night that "most compelling" evidence in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation is days, if not weeks away. According to Gaetz, R-Fla., secret unreleased transcripts involving former Trump aide George Papadopoulos reveal that he denied there was an illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia and that intelligence officials did not present that information to the FISA court. "I believe we are days if not weeks aways for the most in compelling evidence in the biggest political scandal in American history," Gaetz said on "Hannity" Monday. "There was western intelligence sent to spy on Papadopoulos and there's a recording and transcript of the conversation. And there, Papadopoulos denies any illegal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. So, they had evidence presumably that was against Papadopoulos and for him. What they will wont be able to defend is that they never presented that evidence to the FISA court." www.foxnews.com/politics/rep-gaetz-on-the-russia-probes-secret-fbi-transcripts
MarketAnon Update: Morning Market Report Global Markets A "Sea Of Green"(Futures up) After POTUS Temporarily Eases Huawei Restrictions () and bold are additions. It's not exactly clear what prompted today's dramatic U-turn reversal in overnight markets, but this morning stocks and futures around the globe are a sea of green with chipmakers and Asia-exposed stocks among the best performers, with some pointing the finger at Washington's decision to temporarily ease trade restrictions imposed last week on China’s Huawei even though the move was largely procedural, while the trade-war driven turbulence that has dominated markets showed no signs of abating. How about PANIC?- Huawei story is from last night. &P and Nasdaq futures all traded in the green after the U.S. granted limited relief for consumers and carriers using Huawei Technologies, a day after the White House’s moves against the Chinese telecom giant battered stocks. The result has been the biggest monthly drop in the Semiconductor Index - which confounded so many with its oblivious levitation in the first 4 months of 2019 - as traders finally realized that pain is coming. See Cap#3 The overnight respite came after news on Monday that Washington allowed Huawei to purchase American-made goods to maintain existing networks and provide software updates to existing Huawei handsets until Aug. 19. What happens next is unclear. “The Huawei extension is in some sense providing a relief rally as it eases the worst fears of market participants that we are drifting towards a fully-fledged trade war,” said Aberdeen Standard’s head of global strategy, Andrew Milligan. In Europe, the STOXX 600 edged higher, with Germany’s DAX rising 0.6%, while France’s CAC 40 climbed 0.2% in early trading, while tech firm lead the advance. Chipmakers Infineon and STMicro were up 1.4 to 3.5%, and the tech sector rising more than 1% after losing almost 3% on Monday. The autos and suppliers sector was another top gainer, up as much as 1.1%. In London, heavyweights HSBC, Prudential and Standard Chartered boosted the blue-chip index as markets on hopes if an easing in the trade tensions. Daimler got a boost after German newspaper Handelsblatt reported the company was looking to cut administration costs by 20%. Chinese equities had the strongest gains in the Asian session, with the Shanghai Composite up 1.23% and the CSI300 index ended 1.35% higher, while their Japanese peers ended lower. Gains in heavyweight Samsung Electronics helped South Korea’s KOSPI stock index close up 0.3% as traders speculated the chip giant may benefit from Huawei’s need to shift away from American suppliers.

There he goes trying to bring down nation-states again… Dangerous Red Francis Calls for Global Governance to Battle Climate Change Jim Hoft May 21, 2019 Pope Francis recently called for global governance to fight climate change, asserting, “The nation state cannot be considered as an absolute.” During an address to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, the Pope condemned “growing nationalism that neglects the common good” and called for more globalism. “The nation state cannot be considered as an absolute, as an island with respect to the surrounding context,” he said, adding, “The nation state is no longer able to procure the common good of its populations alone.” Pope Francis said that a “special authority legally and concordantly constituted” was necessary to facilitate the implementation of new climate change policies. He went on to demand that power be transferred from nation states to “intergovernmental institutions that manage their common interests.” “This universal common good, in turn, must acquire a more pronounced juridical value at international level,” concluded Francis.

Hundreds of illegal migrants from Africa stormed Paris’s main airport and occupied an entire terminal on Sunday, demanding to meet with the country’s prime minister. Footage posted on Twitter shows the roughly 500 migrants chanting in Terminal 2 of the Charles de Gaulle airport as about a dozen police officers in tactical gear look on, the NY Post reports. “France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” one person can be heard yelling into a loudspeaker. The protest was organized by the migrant support group “La Chapelle Debout”, which said their members call themselves “Black Vests.”
Google and Big Tech Are Already Implementing Their Chinese-Tested Blacklists on US Conservatives In November 2018 The Guardian reported on group of Google employees published an open letter on Tuesday calling on their employer to cancel its plans to build a censored search engine for China, the latest expression of worker unrest at a company that earlier this month saw thousands stage walkouts over its handling of sexual misconduct cases. The Google employees were very upset that Google’s Project Dragonfly would allow the Chinese government to blacklist certain search terms. The employees said, “Many of us accepted employment at Google with the company’s values in mind… After a year of disappointments … we no longer believe this is the case.” Just months later it is now obvious that Google, Facebook and Twitter are using their own blacklists of prominent conservatives and their supporters. www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/05/google-and-big-tech-are-already-implementing-their-chinese-tested-blacklists-on-us-conservatives/
Monsanto spied on friend and foe alike in several countries to sway opinion on GMO & herbicides The recently exposed illegal dossier US herbicide maker Monsanto, now owned by German pharmaceutical firm Bayer, apparently compiled to influence public opinion, included people from seven European states and maybe beyond. Monsanto files listing prominent pro- and anti-herbicide public figures, initially revealed by French media, included “stakeholders in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom, as well as regarding stakeholders related to EU institutions,” AFP reported citing Bayer’s statement on Tuesday. The company added that it is currently trying to determine whether similar lists exist in other states and hired a law firm for this purpose. www.rt.com/business/459890-monsanto-watch-lists-eu/
RIP Grumpy Cat
Grumpy Cat’s owner is facing a major financial loss — there’s no insurance for pet influencers why should there be? Grumpy Cat leaves behind a beloved legacy and a profitable business. Feline celebrity Grumpy Cat, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, died this week due to complications from a urinary-tract infection, her owners shared Friday. The cat, who was seven years old, first rose to fame after a photo of her went viral on Reddit in 2012. In the intervening years she has become one of the most recognizable animals in the world. As a result, she’s had marketing deals with companies ranging from Honey Nut Cheerios GIS, +0.59% and Friskies NSRGY, -0.14% cat food and starred in a television film where she was voiced by actress Aubrey Plaza. Her likeness was emblazoned on hundreds of products sold through her online shop, and she was a popular figure at fan conventions. While her sour-puss appearance brought joy to millions of fans across the globe, her death will bring more than heartache for her owner, Tabatha Bundesen. It will also represent a major financial loss. Pet life insurance exists, but it’s a rarely offered product and would be of little help to the owners of a famous pooch or kitty. It’s not designed to cover losses related to pets who double as income-generators for their owners. “It’s going to be very hard,” said Loni Edwards, a lawyer and founder of The Dog Agency, a New York City-based management agency that represents pet influencers. “As these pet influencers die, there’s little you can do.” Bundesen remained tight-lipped about Grumpy Cat’s net worth over the years, aside from disputing reports that claimed the feline was worth $99.5 million. Grumpy Cat’s owners, however, were awarded more than $700,000 after winning a lawsuit against a coffee company that breached a licensing agreement by using the cat’s likeness on more than one of its products. Even a less popular pet influencer can earn between $3,000 and $15,000 for a sponsored post on social media if they have more than 100,000 followers, according to Edwards. Grumpy Cat had amassed millions of followers across Twitter TWTR, +1.02% and Instagram FB, -1.39% “They can’t do new campaigns or promote new products,” Edwards said. “It’s similar to what would happen if a human celebrity was killed. You can license their likeness, but in terms of doing new movies and news deals that has been closed up.” (MarketWatch reached out to Bundesen and Grumpy Cat’s agent for comment, but did not receive a response.) Pet life insurance won’t help you if your fur baby becomes famous Pet life insurance works nothing like the human equivalent. Rather than cover a loss of income, it simply covers the value of the animal and what it would cost to replace them. There’s good reason: Pet cats live an average of 14 to 16 years, while pet dogs live an average of 16 to 18 years, for some breeds. Pet life insurance won’t help you if your fur baby becomes famous. newsflash-it shouldn't. In other words, upon a pet’s death, the life insurance policy would only pay out how much their owner would need to spend to get a new animal based on either the price they paid in the first place or the current cost of the breed, according to insurance website TrustedChoice. It may also cover funeral or cremation expenses, depending on the policy. *Pet life insurance only covers the cost to replace an animal, not the loss of associated income. www.marketwatch.com/story/grumpy-cats-owner-is-facing-a-major-financial-loss-theres-no-insurance-for-pet-influencers-2019-05-20?siteid=rss&rss=1
Supreme Court deals Apple massive blow by allowing antitrust lawsuit to proceed against tech giant’s monopoly over iPhone apps In an age where just a few companies have control over nearly all of the technology market, it was only a matter of time before consumers got some legal relief from their monopolistic practices. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a consumer-driven antitrust lawsuit against behemoth Apple can proceed regarding its exclusive control over the iPhone apps marketplace, potentially cutting massively into the company’s portion of billions of dollars in sales of software. As The Wall Street Journal reports: Plaintiffs, who are suing on behalf of a class of app purchasers, allege consumers pay inflated prices because Apple requires that all phone software be sold and purchased through the company’s App Store. Apps would be cheaper if software developers could sell them directly and bypass Apple as a middleman, the lawsuit alleges. In most cases, Apple extracts a 30-percent cut of all apps that it sells. In addition, Apple receives 15 percent of subscriptions that are sold via its App Store after a subscriber’s first year as a member. The suit contends that other App Store rules affect pricing as well like the company’s mandate that every app price point end in “99 cents.” That means app developers can only establish prices in increments of a dollar, such as $1.99, etc. www.liberty.news/2019-05-14-supreme-court-deals-apple-massive-blow-antitrust-lawsuit.html

Anon comments: They will wait until the latest time possible - as close to the 2020 election as possible. There will be nothing more damaging to a presidential candidate than to be under impeachment. Or no stronger galvanizing factor for his supporters or those undecided voters who believe it is all absurd. Consider… We are avoiding some major conflicts in regards to the military. We are seeing massive amounts of baseline industrial growth. I am not talking about accounting analytics that are smoke and mirrors anyway - I am talking about the raw amount of material processing capacity we have and the sophistication of output components. The tech fallout with China and their hostilities have manufacturers looking at bringing silicon lithography back to the states. That hasn't been done for decades. There hasn't been a single market CPU or fucking transistor gate made in the U.S. for the better part of 20 years and the trend goes back 35 or longer. Primary ore smelt of iron/steel is up. Primary smelt of aluminum is coming back online (that one had completely gone to China around 2013-14 and the last aluminum ore smelter shut down their state side operations) - the market for about 4 years was entirely chinese sourced and/or secondary sources (from scrap). This was actually insane from an economic standpoint. The U.S. used hydro-electric and nuclear power for most of its aluminum operations. Even the administration of FDR was forced to bow to economic reality when they used the WPA to build hydro stations and tie them to aluminum and steel foundries. By contrast, the Chinese were producing all of their aluminum from coal power. Realistically speaking, China was completely incapable of matching the power demands from its industry and growing demands of living quality from citizens. They had to internally gimmick their coal prices lower than dirt to make it appear like their various metals industries were even remotely plausible - let alone profitable. Aluminum ore requires massive amounts of energy to process into the metal, and sourcing it from coal power is an absolute last resort of desperation. Someone was spending a pretty penny to make sure the U.S. market was undercut and destroyed. Not to mention the various bauxite mines around the globe forced to dance to China's gimmicked economy to get so much as peanuts. Bauxite mines in the former Yugoslavia have been dancing in circles with privatized and socialized production for a couple decades trying to figure out how to properly sell into a market with only one real purchaser. I am digressing - my point is that the people who see POTUS as a threat to their way of life is far smaller than the number of people who see him as being a boon. Further, even the people not too convinced he is doing wonders would also question the narrative that he is somehow doing something worthy of impeachment. To many, it is rather obvious that the only thing President Trump is guilty of is being elected rather than coronated. The over-the-top effort to impeach him only solidifies that. POTUS is also playing the electoral college game. The people who are under the influence of the narrative are largely in urban areas. This may be where most of the people are as a percentage, but the electoral college was designed to counteract this - because less populous states have no reason to be part of the union if their votes do not ultimately matter next to California, Texas, and New York - or the top ten populous cities/districts within those locations. Plus maybe a bone thrown to the I40 and I70 corridor from time to time.
Nunes “Likely” to Send Another Criminal Referral Over Steele Meeting with State Dept by Team Bongino May 21, 2019 Ranking House Intelligence Committee member Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said it was “likely” he would send another criminal referral to the Department of Justice relating to a meeting between the State Department and anti-Trump dossier author, Christopher Steele. Speaking to Fox News yesterday, the Washington Examiner reports that Nunes said notes from State Department official Kathleen Kavalec about her October 2016 meeting with Steele were withheld from the House Intelligence Committee during its investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election. “It’s likely now, as we do our investigation as to why we didn’t get this information that we’ve just been discussing from the State Department two years ago when we should have received it, there could be another referral coming on obstruction a congressional investigation,” he said. Matt Palumbo of Bongino.com detailed the contents of Kavalec’s notes last week: The State Department’s Deputy Assistant Secretary Kathleen Kavalac interviewed Steele on October 11th, which she chronicled in handwritten notes that were later typed and given to the FBI. Thanks for a Freedom of Information Act request from ‘Citizens United” these notes were unearthed. In those notes, Kavalec detailed Steele’s story of how Russians constructed a “technical/human operation run out of Moscow targeting the election” that recruited emigres in the United States to “do hacking and recruiting.” Steele also said that “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” which leads Kavalec to make a note that “there is no Russian consulate in Miami.” That’s only the first comment Kavalec must have seen as damaging to Steele’s credibility. Kavalec made note of comments that indicated Steele was speaking to the media (a cardinal sin for those working with the FBI, and a violation of his confidentiality agreement. It’s interesting that Steele was eventually fired by the FBI for speaking to the press, but not until after they got the FISA they wanted)…. Kavalec also made note of Steele’s obvious political motivations, noting that Steele’s client (Fusion GPS) “is keen to see this information come to light prior to the November 8 [the election].” She also noted that “Orbis [Steele’s firm] undertook the investigation into the Russia/Trump connection at the behest of an institution he declined to identify that had been hacked. ==SOURCE= bongino.com/nunes-likely-to-send-another-criminal-referral-over-steele-meeting-with-state-dept/
This Day in History, May 21: American Red Cross On this day in 1881, Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross. For the next 2 decades she was on the front-lines providing aid and relief whenever she could. Since our founding by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881, the American Red Cross has been dedicated to serving people in need. We received our first congressional charter in 1900 and to this day we are tasked by the federal government with providing services to members of the American armed forces and their families as well as providing disaster relief in the United States and around the world. Even while the Red Cross adapts to meet the changing needs of the people we serve, we always stay true to those roots. Are you familiar with the classic images of Red Cross nurses helping American soldiers and civilian war victims during World War I? In fact, as you read this Red Cross staff and volunteers are still deploying alongside America’s military. Maybe you’ve taken a class through the Red Cross, such as first aid certification or how to swim. Did you know we’ve been offering similar training since the early 1900s? Have you ever given blood or received donated blood? The Red Cross developed the first nationwide civilian blood program in the 1940s and we still provide more than 40% of the blood products in this country. www.redcross.org/

EU On AI Ethics: Must ‘Enhance Positive Social Change’ EU Technocrats define ethics for AI: “Environmental and societal well-being — AI systems should be sustainable and “enhance positive social change.” This is the coveted ‘Science of Social Engineering’ that harkens back to the original Technocracy movement in the 1930s. ⁃ TN Editor The European Union today published a set of guidelines on how companies and governments should develop ethical applications of artificial intelligence. These rules aren’t like Isaac Asimov’s “Three Laws of Robotics.” They don’t offer a snappy, moral framework that will help us control murderous robots. Instead, they address the murky and diffuse problems that will affect society as we integrate AI into sectors like health care, education, and consumer technology. So, for example, if an AI system diagnoses you with cancer sometime in the future, the EU’s guidelines would want to make sure that a number of things take place: that the software wasn’t biased by your race or gender, that it didn’t override the objections of a human doctor, and that it gave the patient the option to have their diagnosis explained to them. So, yes, these guidelines are about stopping AI from running amuck, but on the level of admin and bureaucracy, not Asimov-style murder mysteries. www.technocracy.news/eu-on-ai-ethics-enhance-positive-social-change/
Brexit Party Takes Wide Lead in Wales, Second Place in Remain-Voting Scotland The Brexit Party has taken a massive 17-point lead over the pro-Remain Welsh nationalist party in Wales in a poll ahead of Thursday’s European Parliament elections. The YouGov poll published Monday revealed Nigel Farage’s party to have the support of 36 per cent of voters in the country, which voted to leave the European Union in June 2016. Plaid Cymru, which advocates for Welsh independence from the UK yet supports being subjugated to rule by the EU, has the support of 19 per cent of Welshmen, followed by Labour (15 per cent), the Liberal Democrats (ten per cent), the Green Party (eight per cent), and the Conservatives (seven per cent). The news comes as another YouGov poll puts the Brexit Party in second place in Scotland — an extraordinary position given that that country voted Remain by nearly two votes to one (62 per cent to 38 per cent). The pro-Remain, leftist Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) led voter support on 38 per cent, with the Brexit Party following at 20 per cent. The poll also revealed that just one in five Scotsmen would vote for either the Tories or Labour. www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/21/brexit-party-takes-lead-pro-leave-wales-second-place-remain-voting-scotland/
JPMorgan raises its Brexit no-deal probability forecast to 25 from 15% LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. investment bank JPMorgan raised its probability of a no-deal Brexit to 25 from 15%, saying its base case is that Boris Johnson becomes prime minister, followed by a general election and then another delay to Britain’s exit to the end of the year. JPMorgan raised the probability of an Article 50 extension to 60 versus 50% before and cut the probability of exit on the terms of Prime Minister Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement to 15 from 35%. In a research note to clients titled “Brexit: Time to be afraid, as ‘no deal’ probability rises”, JPMorgan’s Malcolm Barr said the base case was that Johnson became prime minister in early September. “Boris Johnson becomes PM in early September on a ‘no deal if we have to’ platform,” Barr said. “The EU refuses his central objective of removing the backstop from the Withdrawal Agreement.” “The Commons begins the process of legislating to force Johnson to seek an Article 50 extension, and Johnson calls a general election seeking a mandate for his approach,” the note added. “The UK and EU agree to extend Article 50 to end-December to allow time for the general election to take place and for discussions to follow it.” Nearly three years after the United Kingdom voted 52 to 48% in a referendum to leave the EU, it remains unclear how, when or even if it will leave the European club it joined in 1973. The current deadline to leave is Oct. 31. Britain’s labyrinthine crisis over Brexit has stunned allies and foes alike, and with deadlock in London, the world’s fifth largest economy faces an array of options including an exit with a deal to smooth the transition, a no-deal exit, an election or a second referendum. uk.reuters.com/article/us-britain-eu-jpmorgan/jpmorgan-raises-its-brexit-no-deal-probability-forecast-to-25-from-15-idUKKCN1SR1IE (so...all you snakes & shorts are placing bets on this aren't you...)

Rotting Trash Piles Sky-High in LA, Attracting Rats and Raising Concerns of a New Epidemic After reporting a LA's most notorious trash pile to the city's 311 services hotline, the I-Team was told it could take up to 90 days before it's cleaned up. An expert says there's no time to waste By Joel Grover and Amy Corral Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year's record number of flea-borne typhus cases. Even the city's most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA's busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms. The NBC4 I-Team first told Mayor Eric Garcetti's office about the piles of filth in the 700 block of Ceres Avenue in October. At the time, he promised to make sure trash doesn't pile up like that. www.nbclosangeles.com/investigations/Rats-Fleas-Los-Angeles-Garbage-Trash-Piles-Health-Mayor-Eric-Garcetti-510171121.html
These revelations by Lear tie in completely with the statements by last month by dying CIA agent Malcom Howard, who made a death bed confession that he was part of a highly classified operation that was tasked with blowing up World Trade Center Building 7. Speaking from a hospital bed, the New Jersey native says he was part of a cell of 4 CIA operatives who worked on a project dubbed ==“New Century”== between May 1997 and September 2001 that was tasked with ensuring the successful demolition of WTC7, at a time, he says, the CIA “was still taking orders from the top”.

Anon theory – worth a repost: Q prevented a falsely engineered civil war in America - THEORY On the surface, Q is a backchannel communication program designed by the Trump administration maintaining plausible deniability while feeding misinformation to bad actors to create chaos and narrative confusion among their ranks. Some Q connections are confirmed while others are broken or plainly false. We already know Trump's white house strategy involves controlled leaks of all kinds coming from various angles to expose deep state agents, discredit the media and exercise control of the narrative. Think of Q as just one version of this strategy playing out in the Patriot anon's online technosphere. Every time a major player or news organization prints a story that turns out to be completely false, that is more evidence of Q-like intelligence channels feeding misinformation intentionally to achieve an objective. Secondarily, Q is a catch-all to deescalate 'at risk' military aged patriots from organizing any counter revolution or violent fomentation by opening up at least some level of communication direct to his support base. Q occupies us and leads us away from violent and vengeful thinking while Trump and his team carries out Plan A. If it is plainly evident that Soros and others (ABC the Good Fight kek) have attempted to ESCALATE the brainwashed masses into a "resistance" frenzy… the Q program intends to prevent that boiling over into open conflict. Imagine a world where all we had was Trump's twitter and the MSM. I don't believe patriots would have unilaterally agreed to allow the charade to continue as it unfolded over the past two years. If you are mad at Q, I challenge you to see it for what it actually is. If you are upset that your time was wasted.. and you felt you would have revolted and taken judgement into your own hands without being "misled" by Q, then you are living proof that the program is a resounding success. In reality, the worst case is that ultimately Trump fails and we are forced to finally take care of the matter ourselves.. However, it is foolish to attempt anything now while at least our apparent ally holds the seat of power in the country. Vigilance yes. Violence, No. Not just yet. If there was anything "Q" that was objectively accurate from a future past perspective, it was the assurance of the insulation of POTUS during the special counsel investigation when every news agency vehemently reported that Mueller was indeed going to take out Trump. In my opinion, patriots would not have been able to contain that level of pressure. Without Q, I think there is no doubt we would have experienced Nationalist patriot coordinated attacks on globalist controlled infrastructure. With the global media at large, the "white Nazi resurgence" narrative would have been completed and America itself would be in a position not unlike pre-war 1930s Germany in view of the rest of the world. Very easy to convince the globalist controlled European states to rise up against the great Nazi America beast as righteous anti-racist coalition and essentially re-enact World War II geopolitics in a sickening casting reversal. If you pay close attention to major media and entertainment, (Charlottesville rally, Amazon's Man in the High Castle, Bethesda Softwork's Wolfenstein II The New Colossus, Ubisoft's The Division 2 etc.) you will see the predictive programming's attempt to create a believable "Nazi's in America" scenario. This destabilization program is why the democrat left seems to be in another world. They actually are. Many Americans were successfully programmed to see a "New Nazi uprising" that they now must "resist" like their French progenitors in WWII. It is very real to them. Trump and the Q program actually STOPPED most of us from unwittingly performing an active role as "Nazi villains" in this globalist concocted civil war scenario. The language they continue to use in describing Trump and his base is the ultimate window into the social engineering the globalists have attempted to enact. When you feel the urge to civil war, try to keep this in mind. Now we can all watch the next months unfold and evaluate in retrospect if Trump has accomplished enough to warrant our further support of a second term and ongoing peaceful civic responsibility.
Democrats fume as McGahn skips House hearing: ‘Our subpoenas are not optional’ The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee vowed Tuesday to go to court if necessary to seek former White House Counsel Don McGahn's testimony, after he defied a subpoena and skipped a committee hearing at President Trump's direction. The move infuriated Democrats and touched off what could be another high-profile battle over holding a Trump official in contempt of Congress. “Let me be clear, this committee will hear Mr. McGahn's testimony, even if we have to go to court to secure it,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y, said at the beginning of the hearing which McGahn did not attend. www.foxnews.com/politics/democrats-fume-after-mcgahn-skips-house-hearing-our-subpoenas-are-not-optional
Top Democrat's wife may have gained 'illegal private benefit' from his committee activities A charity run by the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee and could have been used illegally, according to an IRS complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group. Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. His wife, Maya Rockeymoore, 48, is the chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party and briefly ran in the state's gubernatorial race last year. The couple married in 2008. Cummings was once heavily in debt — in part due to hefty child support payments to his first wife and two other women he had children with — but his financial situation has improved considerably over the past decade. Rockeymoore runs two entities, a nonprofit group called the Center for Global Policy Solutions and a for-profit consulting firm called Global Policy Solutions, LLC, whose operations appear to have overlapped, according to the IRS complaint filed by watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center on Monday. The complaint states that the arrangement may have been used to derive "illegal private benefit." Global Policy Solutions received more than $6.2 million in grants between 2013 and 2016, according to tax records. Several of the nonprofit group’s financial backers — which included Google, J.P Morgan and Prudential — have business interests before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Cummings has served as Democratic chairman of the committee since January and previously served as ranking member. The largest contributor to the nonprofit was the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is the charitable arm of pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, a company that is regulated by Cummings’s committee. The foundation, which gave a total of $5.5 million to Rockeymoore’s consulting firm and $5.2 million to her nonprofit, ceased supporting her groups in 2017. In recent months, Cummings has been a vocal opponent of Johnson & Johnson, targeting the company as part of the House Oversight Committee’s probe of drug price inflation. Under Cummings, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has wide authority to regulate business industries, including pharmaceuticals, banking, mortgage brokers, and technology. In recent years, Prudential, JP Morgan, and Johnson & Johnson have had business interests before the committee. Tom Anderson, director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s Government Integrity Project, which has been investigating the nonprofit arrangement and provided research to the Washington Examiner, said the potential for corruption is “off the charts.” He said Rockeymoore declined to let his organization view her nonprofit’s most recent public financial records as required by the IRS. “When a powerful chairman of a committee of the House of Representatives has a wife that is bringing in money from entities with interests before his Committee and she is not providing the transparency mandated by the IRS, there's a serious problem,” said Anderson. “The potential for corruption in this situation is simply off the charts and can't be understated. We hope Chairman Cummings works with his wife to end the stonewalling and provide the public with what's legally mandated all charities provide Both Cummings and Rockeymoore refused to discuss the allegations with the Washington Examiner. Cummings did not answer questions about the overlap between companies with interests before his committee and donors to his wife’s foundation. Rockeymoore did not respond to request for comment. www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/top-democrat-elijah-cummings-wife-may-have-gained-illegal-private-benefit-from-his-committee-activities www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/05/developing-democrat-chairman-of-house-oversight-committee-and-wife-accused-of-massive-pay-to-play-scandal/
Facebook’s Surveillance-Like Software Is Called Audience Network This may be hard to picture now, but in 2012, Facebook was struggling. The newly public company wasn’t meeting Wall Street’s demands for sales and profit, and the stock price was down from $38 per share at the IPO to $19 per share. Mark Zuckerberg’s ambitions to be a predominant tech company on the NASDAQ were failing. Meanwhile, macro-economic conditions were rosy, so this downturn was especially disappointing to Facebook investors, which in turn, caused mounting pressure for the social network. It’s important to note that “selling data” is the correct terminology as advertisers buy ads on Facebook for the data, as opposed to print, television or radio ads which are bought based on the content. You are buying the data when you buy a Facebook ad, although Mark Zuckerberg led Congress to believe otherwise. The betrayal was two-fold. On one hand, a first-party data company boldly entered the third-party data marketplace to broker data, risking the trust of its social media users. Secondly, Facebook did everything in its power to make sure social media users would not find out. Audience Network, which fuels a substantial portion of Facebook’s revenue from the social network, has not been disclosed to the public to this day. It is eerily absent from PR releases and discussions around privacy. Unless a Facebook user was a detective, they would have no reasonable way to know that Facebook operates Audience Network and is selling private data across hundreds of thousands of applications at an estimated 40% of the app market. hackernoon.com/facebooks-surveillance-like-software-is-called-audience-network-56c3e76cdb89?source=collection_home—4——0———————
This looks a lot like extortion… ca.finance.yahoo.com/news/iran-accelerates-production-enriched-uranium-164543278.html Tehran has already announced it stopped complying with a 300-kilogram cap on the storage of enriched uranium and heavy water imposed by the multilateral accord, and said it would abandon limits on uranium enrichment unless Europe throws it an economic lifeline within 60 days, setting an ultimatum for the survival of the landmark agreement. Anon comments: So Iran is admittedly violating the “agreement” hoping to push Europe to financially support them. I believe our sanctions are being very effective. And they are calling out for help, although i’m curious if that request for financial assistance is more of a threat to europe. Looks like John Kerry and Diane Feinstein were ineffective in reassuring the regime. Curious… Don't have time right now to redig/find the sauce (could be had via search), but they (IRAN) would have been in non-compliance over the heavy water years ago, but Obongo either offered to haul the excess away or gave them some kind of waiver to ignore that requirement. Their defaulting on the terms of the agreement happened years ago. This is not some new development that that propaganda machine would like for you to believe.

HSBC plans more China tech jobs in push for market share HONG KONG (Reuters) - HSBC Holdings PLC plans to add more than a 1,000 jobs this year at its technology development centers in China, as the Asia-focused lender seeks to bolster its presence in the world’s second largest economy. Europe’s biggest bank by assets will boost headcount at its technology centers in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Xi’an by 14% from a current 7,000-strong workforce, said HSBC Chief Information Officer Darryl West. In recent years the London-based bank has spent $3 billion annually on its group technology operations which employ 40,000 people worldwide, and West said annual investments of $3-$3.5 billion are planned over the next few years. Many global banks set up low-cost hubs in China and India more than a decade ago to maintain their complex worldwide information technology networks, but these centers have now become a core part of their operations. The centers develop and implement risk and fraud management technologies, as well as digital applications that make it easier for banks to attract customers and deliver faster and more secure services. HSBC’s expansion plan in China, a key market for the bank, comes amid growing use of technology in the financial sector - from payments to transactions. At stake is a bigger share of the billions of dollars worth of retail and corporate banking business in a major financial market with a growing customer base. “There is a lot more we can do with technology in mainland China. The level of technology adoption and innovation in China is way ahead of other markets,” West told reporters during a tour of HSBC’s technology center in the southern city of Guangzhou last week. “We see mainland China as a tremendous source of talent, not just for the local market but our technology operations globally. We are hiring very aggressively here,” he added. RETAIL BANKING About 30% of the work done at the Guangzhou center, the largest HSBC tech facility in China with more than 5,000 employees, is for the mainland market and that share is expected to grow over the next couple of years. HSBC is also using China-based tech centers to develop banking products for its global network, such as the bank’s U.K. mobile app which was developed in the northwestern city of Xi’an. Outside China, HSBC employs more than 10,000 people at technology centers in India, with the rest in countries such as Britain, Canada, Hong Kong and the United States. HSBC has in recent years lifted investment in China, including the prosperous southern Pearl River Delta region. Mainland China and Hong Kong together accounted for nearly 40% of the bank’s revenue in 2018. The bank will invest $15-$17 billion in the next three years in areas including technology and China, its Chief Executive John Flint said last year. The limited physical presence of foreign banks in China compared to dominant domestic rivals has been a challenge. HSBC’s losses in retail banking and wealth management (RBWM) in mainland China widened to $200 million last year from $44 million in 2017. The bank aimed to reverse that with its investments in technology. “Things like that, we see as very important for the next phase of our business growth … once the major investments have gone in, RBWM will grow bigger and also profitable,” said HSBC Greater China Chief Executive Helen Wong. www.reuters.com/article/us-hsbc-hldg-china/hsbc-plans-more-china-tech-jobs-in-push-for-market-share-idUSKCN1SR0C1?il=0

North Korean Sex Slaves Forced To Endure Rape, Exploitation And Forced Marriage In China Tens of thousands of North Korean women and girls are actively trafficked into the Chinese sex trade by criminal organizations, and are often forced to endure "systematic rape, sex trafficking, sexual slavery, sexual abuse, prostitution, cybersex trafficking, forced marriage and forced pregnancy," according to a new report. Following an extensive investigation, the Korea Future Initiative found that victims are "commonly aged between 12-29 and overwhelmingly female." Many of them are sold more than once, and are "forced into at least one form of sexual slavery within a year of leaving their homeland." Sex trafficking and exploitation is a $105,000,000 per year business for the Chinese underworld, according to the report. "Victims are prostituted for as little as ¥30 Chinese Yuan ($4 United States Dollars), sold as wives for just ¥1000 Chinese Yuan ($146 United States Dollars), and trafficked into cybersex dens for exploitation by a global online audience." "Pushed from their homeland by a patriarchal regime that survives through the imposition of tyranny, poverty, and oppression, North Korean women and girls are passed through the hands of traffickers, brokers, and criminal organisations" according to the London-based Korea watchdog group. According to the report's author, Yoon Hee-soon, prostitution has overtaken forced marriage as the "primary pathway" into the sex trade for North Korean women and girls. "Enslaved in brothels that litter satellite-towns and townships close to large urban areas in northeast China, victims are mostly aged between 15-25 and are habitually subjected to penetrative vaginal and anal rape, forced masturbation, and groping," said Hee-soon. Girls as young as nine are forced to perform graphic cybersex acts and are sexually assaulted in front of webcams which are streamed to a global audience. "Prospects for North Korean women and girls trapped in China’s multi-million-dollar sex trade are bleak," said the report's author, adding "Many victims have perished in China, while small rescue organisations and Christian missionaries struggle to perform rescue work. Urgent and immediate action, which will run contrary to the prevailing politics of inter-Korean dialogue, is needed to save the lives of countless female North Korean refugees in China." www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-20/north-korean-sex-slaves-forced-endure-rape-exploitation-and-forced-marriages-china Side Note: I intended to publish the link to the report here, however it appears Scribd has removed this from there content.

www.nknews.org/2019/05/unicef-received-second-sanctions-exemption-for-north-korea-work-in-april-un The UN says North Korea’s Ambassador to the UN Kim Song is set to hold a news conference on Tuesday regarding the U.S.' recent seizure of a North Korean cargo ship. Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, made the announcement for the planned briefing on Monday. It is rare for the North to hold a news conference at the UN. Ambassador Kim is likely to condemn the U.S.’ seizure of the ship "Wise Honest." He is also expected to call on the world body to lift its sanctions on Pyongyang, arguing that they are unfair. On May ninth, the U.S. Justice Department announced that it had seized "Wise Honest," one of the North's largest cargo ships, saying the ship was used to illicitly export North Korean coal and import heavy machinery in violation of international sanctions. The department cited that it was the first time the U.S. had seized a North Korean cargo vessel for violating UN sanctions.
Exclusive look inside NSA Hawaii, the "front lines" of intelligence gathering CBS News is getting an exclusive look at the National Security Agency's secretive outpost in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. NSA Hawaii is on the front lines of American intelligence gathering, intercepting communications and monitoring a region that includes China and North Korea. The NSA is the largest of the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies, and this outpost in Hawaii is particularly busy these days as the U.S. shifts its focus from fighting terrorism to a competition between nations for critical information. Cameras usually aren't allowed, but Capt. Kurt Mole, who leads the top-secret facility, took CBS News correspondent Carter Evans and his team inside. "This is absolutely a first for me," Mole said of the cameras, adding, "However, we recognize that transparency breeds trust." Still in one room, we had to blur the picture because everything in there was classified. It's where specialists listen in on foreign communications. "Anything that travels over the radio frequency waves or inside the electromagnetic spectrum, it can be collected," Mole said. "We have the ability to pull items that have been collected worldwide… Much of our reporting even ends up on the desk of the president." "The president has had some harsh words for the intelligence community. What does that do to morale here?" Carter asked. "Nothing," Mole responded. "We're not paying attention to that. We're focused on mission." Mole said with so much information coming through, "humans can only do so much." "So we're looking at ways to where we can utilize A.I. and machine learning to be able to… get the right data to that right analyst," Mole said. Over the past 18 months, the Trump administration has slapped Chinese hackers with an unprecedented number of criminal indictments after Chinese nationals attempted to compromise key targets in the U.S. Much of the reporting that contributed to U.S. government actions related to that came out of this facility, Mole said. Chief Master Sgt. Nina Ung controls the NSA teams keeping a close watch on our adversaries across the Pacific. She called their outpost the "front lines." "If you look at just in our own backyard, right, we have China and North Korea," Ung said. "It's no secret that they're loud, they're noisy, and they are willing to use to use cyber threats and force." "You have four of the largest world economies, you have seven of the 10 largest militaries. Five nuclear nations," Mole said. "Tell me more about that as a cyber power grab going on," Carter said. "It's not just cyber," Mole said. "The United States does not have the superiority in any of those domains that we once had." Deep inside an underground tunnel is where the NSA first established a presence in Hawaii. It's also the location where Edward Snowden worked, before he stole hundreds of thousands of classified documents. Snowden was a contractor working for the NSA Hawaii in 2013 when he leaked documents outlining American government surveillance practices. "Is it something that people here still think about?" Carter asked. "Not at all. We don't dwell on the past. Our workforce, our mission is too critical today," Mole said. Asked whether the NSA is observing American citizens, Mole responded, "The National Security Agency in conducting its missions is always in accordance with the U.S. law." The domestic phone surveillance program first exposed by Snowden is now under review and may be discontinued. Still no one at the NSA would go into any detail about changes made because it's classified. As CBS News' Evans witnessed, they are dead serious about security. They combed through all of his team's gear, and no one is allowed to bring any electronics inside the facility – no cellphones, no watches, and certainly no USB devices. www.cbsnews.com/news/nsa-hawaii-exclusive-inside-look-front-lines-intelligence-gathering/
