  • Chinese Hackers Steal Unclassified Data From Navy Contractor
    June 8, 2018

    “WASHINGTON — China has stolen sensitive data related to naval warfare from the computers of a Navy contractor, American officials said on Friday, in another step in the long-running cyberwar between two global adversaries.

    “The breach occurred this year, the officials said, when Chinese government hackers infiltrated the computers of a company working on a Navy submarine and underwater programs contract. The company, which was not identified, was doing work for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, which is based in Newport, R.I.

    “Officials said that the data gleaned by China was unclassified.

    “Navy officials declined to speak publicly about the hack, which was
    first reported by The Washington Post.

    “But in a statement, Lt. Marycate Walsh, a Navy spokeswoman, cited 'measures in place that require companies to notify the government when a cyberincident has occurred that has actual or potential adverse effects on their networks that contain controlled unclassified information.'”

    You guys pretty much have it right about money (whatever it is at a point in time).

    The main reason money is accepted is because it is christened with the ability to pay taxes. Why else would anyone want a plugged nickel or linen with dollars signs printed on them?

    A consumption tax would ensnare most all now outside the current (income) tax scheme i.e. illegals and some black markets. Knowing the US congress, they would love to pass a VAT type tax along with keeping the income tax intact.

    Wrong thinking about the dollar going down in value, at least on a worldwide scale. Euroland is just now beginning to implode and that is why they dream of everyone joining a world order, contribute to carbon credits, among other brain dead taxing schemes. EU is simply running out of other people's money. They desperately need to sell Airbus products to anyone possible including Iran to their bureaucracy of social agendas.

    Money is starting to flee Euroland and the money will end up in the US stock markets causing another nosebleed height run to new highs. That will cause the US$ to rise in value, in turn causing US$ debt denominated like for developing 3rd world loans to be to expensive to acquire or to payback existing loans. US consumer pain comes just a bit later after that.

    Armstrong is telling you how to prepare. Buy some startup hydroponic or mist fed companies then sell them when they rise in price because of takeover rumors by bigger companies. Invest in foods.

  • slandermen Deadboy

    I struggle with reasoning sometimes. Someone please explain to me how it works.

    Like, there are these people who have through various methods of corruption, fraud, basically being abusive, also incredibly greedy, kind of morally lacking, that sort of thing acquired lots of money at the expense of other people, animals, environment.

    Now people are telling me, I should listen to those guys? People are telling me, those guys are gonna help. Telling me those guys, who always use money as their most important appeal, those guys are trustworthy?

    So when I say fuckoff, and people have an issue with that, explain to me which part of my reasoning process I must compromise to allow a more socially acceptable response when dealing with bullshit?

      I may as well take this opportunity to promote medication, in some way.

      I was given some red powder and blue powder and the instructions said to mix them and drink them as pills. But, I didn't want to. So I noticed some people like the red more than the blue, or something and I started handing out red and blue pills.

      What a capitalist success story! They don't know I'm selling them parts of purple pills.

That right there is an indication to me that you were trolling me, in light of all the well meaning and I believe significant work I did to examine the background to fallout comparison issue, causes of low level fallout damage, and more.

          Its unfathomable to me that you would consider my stuff the work of a troll, and moreover, you have had a history of fighting me on my investigations. You launched a smear campaign with Sadie a long time ago. Why would you so all this? Is it possible you couldnt grasp where I was going with it all and thus misconstrued my stuff to mean the opposite of what it does? We see this phenomenon in Anne and Hippie Dog.

      Journalist Accuses Israel of Fukushima Sabotage – October 14, 2011

      Zero Days



      • DUDe DUDe

        Israhell..lets just say that morally , Israel certainly has a big enough "dead zone" where its conscience is supposed to be..or in other more then capable to exercise such a terror upon enemy's/the world and laugh afterwards..its a proffesional parasite ffs.

        Parasites Which Take Over Their Hosts feb17

        The fact that Israel receives billions each year from the US taxpayer as our politicians in Washington endlessly pledge their devotion to the “special relationship,” has led many observers to liken the pro-Israel lobby in America to a parasite that has invaded a host.

        It’s a powerful analogy, so much so that even books have been published expounding at length upon the idea.

        Most of us, when we hear the word “parasite,” think of such creatures as ticks, tapeworms, or giardia, which, upon gaining a foothold, may feed upon a host’s blood or gastrointestinal microbiota.

        But within the world of parasitology, we come across the phenomenon of parasites that literally take over the host, compelling it into certain acts and behaviors that it otherwise would not exhibit. In many cases these actions can be quite pronouncedly detrimental to the host’s own interests.

        In other words, there are certain parasites that can, strictly speaking, literally take control of the host’s mind.

        "This is something all Americans need to think about. Our own survival could be at stake."

        "A factor that undoubtedly would have encouraged the Bush-Cheney White House to provide Japan with the means to secretly build nukes was the growing power of China. Cheney and Bush sought to arm Japan and India with nuclear weapons as a means of curbing China."

        Its almost impossible to make a movie that fully exposes every way "humans" have setup this world to selfdestroy..even if it would be a 100 hours movie..and it alway's comes back to.."lack of conscience and empathy" a system that makes those fuckers our leaders/bosses/owners..with the charicatural orange cherry on the cake in the white house.

        Thanks Jebus, AirSep, DUDe for following up. I didnt know Stuxnet had a generic component capable of affecting many different industrial works and just how sophisticated it is. But it seems like it was programmed to hit Iran specifically.

        I think theres no doubt that the Diesel generators were flooded. There was in fact some earthquake activity. Whether a series of offshore nuclear bombs designed to create a tsunami triggered a fault slip is I suppose an open debate. There was obviously shaking and later the claimed major shifting of Japan, although there was perhaps a mysterious lack of building damage and if I recall, odd seismic signature. I remember Anne was of the opinion that the very low energy atomic collider triggered it.

        It wouldnt surprise me if Yoichi Shimatsu is at least partly correct. On the other hand he strikes me sometimes as being a sensationalist journalist. One can imagine how powerful the cover up operation would be by governments. That means that every bit of info is suspect. For example, a TED talk. I have often suspected that TED may have some agendas behind it, and more-so the 'Big Think' entity. At the least, there is ALWAYS a motivation in media releases. Who is selling what?

        All of this expensive stuff is funded from one source; the public. Its really a capitalist success story, and quite amazing the belabored public can support all this destructive, wealth extracting death vector stuff.

      "There was NO land Earthquake, the seismic waves never reached the crust of Japan."

      All supposed evidence of an earthquake was created by putting supermarkets, streets, parks, buildings, miscellaneous infrastructue in the back of a van. The van was driven recklessly by a drunk driver. A GoPro camera was installed in the van. A green screen was painted on the vans' interior. The rest was Hollywood. And we all know Hollywood is controlled by Jews. Mel Gibson drove the van. They needed a patsy.

      Good Sunday morning's work. Kept us all distracted for eight years…

      what are they REALLY up to? 😉

      • slandermen Deadboy

        It occurred to me you could have someone say stupid shit and try to associate it with an otherwise fairly convincing argument which has a number of peculiar details, too.

        Let's say there was an earthquake, for instance. Well, maybe not a typical earthquake. Let's also say that a company with 12 employees (MAGNA BSP, was it?) were doing some security/monitoring at fulushima. Let's say, some israelis left japan just before march 11. Maybe STUXNET was also involved, as it's been found to be involved with some other nuclear facilities.

        Otoh, you could probably still fake it.

        • slandermen Deadboy

          Why you would say that, I'm not so sure though. Maybe it's actually a sort of attempt at discrediting a theory by throwing in random shit. So now people think "oh look, that's clearly bullshit, so the rest of what's said must be bullshit too". It happens, people think like that.

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          There was an earthquake…plate movement. We know that a plan was developed to create a tsunami with a series of nuclear bombs but we cant say it was used. Its possible this could trigger the slipping of the fault. Why would a nefarious group need stuxnet to cripple Fukushima if they created a tsunami? Why create a tsunami if you use stuxnet? What information suggests that either were intentionally used in Fukushima?

          More than 120,000 buildings were destroyed, 278,000 were half-destroyed and 726,000 were partially destroyed

          • slandermen Deadboy

            In terms of why? The only reason I could really think of is convenience with timing. If something like a 9 EQ and tsunami was deliberate I could imagine how that ties into making sure a nuclear power plant fails, especially if it was the main target.

    Global nuclear power use will grow 1.9% annually up to 2035, according to oil and gas giant BP. However, carbon dioxide emissions are seen to increase by almost 30% over that period.

    The Mega Oil Lie.

    1933 World's Fair- Chicago

    The Sinclair Oil Corporation sponsored a dinosaur exhibit at the World's Fair in Chicago–on the premise that the world's oil reserves were formed during the Mesozoic Era.

    As late as 1964, when geologists and paleontologists were starting to know better, Sinclair repeated this trick at the much bigger New York World's Fair, driving home the connection between dinosaurs and oil to an entire generation of impressionable baby boomers.

    Oil Was Formed by Tiny Bacteria, not Huge Dinosaurs.
    Single-celled bacteria evolved in the earth's oceans about three billion years ago, and were pretty much the only life form on the planet until about 600 million years ago.

    The 'Biogenic Theory' might be just that, a theory.

    Or the mysterious Kerogen:

    'Are We Getting Sea Life High on Opioids?'

    "Believe it or not, mussels in Seattle are testing positive for opioids. Mussels are what are known as “filter feeders” since they absorb food from their surrounding environment. The problem that is surfacing is demonstrating the difference between “pollution” and “climate change,” which so many people assume are the same thing. Mussels absorb also all contaminants from their environment into their tissues. Scientists in Seattle used cages to transplant clean mussels from an aquaculture source to 18 urbanized locations around Puget Sound. After a few months, they recovered the mussels from the urban waters and tested them.

    In three of the 18 locations they selected, the mussels shockingly tested positive for trace amounts of oxycodone. It seems the mussels are getting high. What is happening is that humans are ingesting opioids and excreting traces of the drugs into the toilet. Those chemicals in turn then end up in wastewater because not all contaminants can be filtered out of wastewater. Then the city ejects the wastewater into Puget Sound and we end up getting the sea life high.

    You might want to avoid “fresh” catches around major cities."

    The list of oil companies that met with the Pope about climate change has some big names missing

    Pope Francis has put his foot down: Climate change is such a pressing issue that science and religion must come together for the good of all people. He’s starting with a plea for oil executives to have a come-to-Jesus moment when it comes to environmentalism.

    Today, Francis spoke at the second day of an energy summit, called “Energy Transition and Care for Our Common Home,” held at the Vatican in Rome, Italy. It’s a commendable effort, no doubt. However, many of the world’s biggest oil producers are in countries where the Pope doesn’t have much sway—especially those in Hindu, Muslim, Eastern-Orthodox, Buddhist, or secular countries.

    "As an outsider, I find the discussion of china collapse very interesting. Even if I am of ethnic Chinese, I try to view the issue objectively.

    However, my interest mainly focus on the views express by Gordon C. Chang, who first came into great fame with his book on Collapse in 2001. Ever since then he had been predicting the Collapse again and again.

    In an article on Oct 17 titled "Smart money on Bannon as he takes on China", Chang believed then that Steve Bannon who was supposed to be a key person in Trump's election success and later in policy of White House would be a force in bringing down China.

    Why? Because Bannon had been dismissed from White House and so was free to wreck havoc on China. He cited as evidence of the power of Bannon his stunning success in getting Ray Moore on the republican ticket in the primary. This was to Chang ominous sign to bring down China, no less.

    People who follow American politics recently would know that Bannon wanted to take revenge against the current Republicans because they didn't give enough support to Trump. So now that he was out of White House, he had the power redirected at Chinese.

    Come Nov 17, Ray Moore lost the election, and Bannon and Breitbart, his main channel to fire his fury – Chang had not come up with another person to bring China to her knees.

    With the great power of Bannon and the great foresight of Chang we wait for the imminent fatal wound to China to break into smithereens…"

    • slandermen Deadboy

      "I wonder what it what and is the fury in Chang that he would like to see the suffering of 3 billion people whose blood he share a part of.

      Realistically, things are not all rosy in China as we canvas news from verious sources. Even China's central banker warned of excessive credit which may be unsustainable. But their debt is internal and with high savings they have sufficient funds if and when things get bad. There won't be any need of IMF or other institutions to lord over them. The worst comes to the worst they have US treasury bills to sell. Wouldn't that bring US to collapse?

      China may collapse economically in future, but I believe it will be long after I and Chang are gone".

    Poll shows deep divisions between Israelis and American Jews

    An opinion poll published Sunday shows deep divisions between Israelis and American Jews, particularly in relation to President Donald Trump, highlighting the growing rift between the world’s two largest Jewish communities.

    The survey of the American Jewish Committee showed 77 percent of Israelis approved of the president’s handling of U.S.-Israel relations, while only 34 percent of American Jews did. Fifty-seven percent of U.S. Jews disapproved, while only 10 percent of Israelis did.

    The polarizing Trump recently recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and relocated the American Embassy there, upending decades of U.S. foreign policy and an international consensus that the city’s fate should be decided through peace negotiations. The Palestinians, who claim east Jerusalem as their future capital, were outraged by the move and cut all contacts with the U.S. in response.

    Eighty-five percent of Israelis supported the embassy move, while only 46 percent of American Jews did.

    Hey since some Trump supporters recently have been particularly ignorant and full of shit, I feel like reminding them of something, an opinion or two would be great.

    So Nikki Haley, current US-UN ambassador. Trump donated to her before he was institutionalized. Anyway, she sued government nuclear stuff, while ironically promoting nuclear stuff. Other than that, there are some other peculiarities in terms of associations and dealings.

    Also, in South Carolina, where she was governor and tried to somewhat hypocritically promote nuke shit while suing government (that would be your tax money at work), apparently westinghouse (again, related to that shit) got approval for a 40 year license renewal for a nuclear fuel plant just the other day.

    Republican Lawmakers Block Townsend Amendments To Protect Parents From Dishonest DCS Workers

    April 18, 2017

    On Monday, House Republicans beat back an effort by Rep. Kelly Townsend to protect Arizona’s parents’ constitutional rights by amending SB1003. Townsend’s amendments would have prohibited Department of Child Safety caseworkers from lying to the court or withholding exculpatory evidence.

    SB1003, sponsored by Sen. Nancy Barto “establishes the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on the Department of Child Safety (Committee) and outlines Committee membership and meeting requirements.” However, an amendment offered by Rep. John Allen would effectively codify the Department’s practice of denying parents their due process rights.

      Arizona Places 2 Year Old Child in Foster Pornographic Pedophile Ring – Foster Mom Burns 80% of Her Body

      WARNING! Content in this article not suitable for younger audiences!

      This is perhaps one of the most horrific examples of child abuse of a child who was taken into state custody by a “Child Protection” social service agency, and put into the foster care system, that we have ever reported.

      That is not to state that these kinds of horrible stories are rare, but rather seldom do we have the legal rights to publish such stories.

      This one is the result of a lawsuit in the State of Arizona, and therefore the 1st Amendment gives us, and anyone else in the media, the right to expose this, since charges have been filed against the alleged criminals in the foster care system.

      As we have previously reported on our website, statistics clearly show that children taken away from their families, even “troubled” families where there are problems, do far worse overall in foster care after they are separated from their families, since the incidences of abuse while in foster care are far greater.

    'The Misconception of Central Banks'

    "…They clearly knew I understood the real dynamics of the system as a whole with both the fiscal and monetary side in addition to Demand v Supply-side economics. The also knew I lived in the real world community and was one of the few true international advisers. The difference is I really had some $3 trillion under contract which was about 50% of the US National Debt at the time. They knew I spoke with real-life experience – not theory. That was even part of the Congressional record when I testified before the House Ways & Means Committee. When the model called the 1987 Crash that was one thing. But the very day of the low it confirmed that was it and the low would hold and off we would go to new highs. I was called in by the White House that day and asked to confirm this would be it. There are simply times when they just really need to know what is happening and they need to rely on something that is NOT political or just the passing opinion of an analyst. Then the Tokyo Crash took place perfectly with the top of the ECM 1989.95 and again I had two central banks on the phone at the same time…

    …That is when the CIA called and wanted the model since it had political implications that became obvious. It has become obvious to those behind the curtain that our model is no joke…"

          but the algorithms are predictive at the year level. Maybe you are thinking of latency arbitrage. "It will take 7 milliseconds or more for a report of the stock’s price change to reach Chicago through the fiber-optic cables linking these two financial centers. If you got wind of the news faster than that, your lightning-fast computerized trading machines could use “latency arbitrage” to profit. The TABB Group estimates that $21 billion is made with latency arbitrage every year. "

          Its true modern wall-street wealth extraction methods are working at the millisecond level; "high-frequency trading was responsible for 78 percent of the dollar trading volume in 2009" but predictive programs would account for this.

            That shit you quote is exactly what I mean.

            The reason imo often related to high amounts of leveraging remember also that if you have more to begin with, it's easier to manipulate and take advantage of leveraging, especially if you happen to be able to sort of trigger reactions…perhaps due to algorithms and associated latency and sme collusion.

    Fossil fuels’ dirty secret: Things look bad, climate action or not

    "This, experts warn, could be the future of fossil fuels.

    Wind turbines, solar panels and electric vehicles are getting cheaper and more abundant by the day, which is hurting demand for coal, oil and natural gas.

    As demand falls for conventional fuels, so will prices. Companies that laid claim to coal mines or oil wells, won’t be able to turn a profit by digging up that fuel.

    They will default on their loans, pushing banks to the brink of failure.

    Prices are likely to crash before 2035, costing the global economy as much as $4 trillion, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change."

    "There is, however, a bright side. As Carney noted, the shift to clean energy “is a major opportunity for insurers as long-term investors.” He added, “The more we invest with foresight; the less we will regret in hindsight.”

    Trump’s coal industry bail out would punish red states the most

    President Trump has ordered Secretary of Energy Rick Perry to take “immediate steps” to bailout unprofitable coal and nuclear plants.

    This move, initiated on Friday, will inevitably increase electricity rates and pollution for all Americans. Perry is already drafting a plan that would prevent grid operators from replacing dirty coal power with cheaper and far less polluting natural gas, solar, and wind power.

    Those hardest hit by Trump’s order will be the states where the most money-losing power plants reside. And, ironically, the most uneconomic coal plants are in the Southeastern states, which overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump.

    Indeed, to make his case, Perry had to ignore his own grid study, which had made clear renewables were not a threat to power reliability.

    The new Trump plan has uniquely broad opposition.

    “This has got to be one for the record books,” tweeted New York Times investigative reporter Eric Lipton. “Oil industry joins with solar and wind industry to condemn Trump admin plan to prop up coal industry by forcing electric grid to buy coal power. Oil/wind/solar as allies? Fascinating times.”

    The truth is that the only people who benefit from keeping money-losing plants open are rich coal barons like Bob Murray, a big Trump donor who has been pushing for this bailout for over a year.

    Everyone else in the country — and most especially Trump’s own voters — would have to…

        Trump Corruption: Coal King Ordered Trump to Withdraw from Climate Accords, Suspend Workers/Environmental Rules

        Bob Murray, defacto climate chief of Trump cabal and world's largest polluter

        Coal executive Bob Murray last year presented Trump administration officials with half a dozen draft executive orders aimed at exiting the Paris climate accord and peeling back coal regulations.

        All President Trump had to do was sign them.

        The documents, released this afternoon under the Freedom of Information Act to E&E News, reveal new details about a secretive meeting in March of last year among Murray, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and other top agency officials.

        It does not appear that Trump signed the orders.

        But the documents provide a further glimpse into the Murray Energy Corp. CEO’s efforts to persuade the federal government to repeal environmental regulations he deemed a burden to his industry. Parts of the coal executive’s proposed action plan have been previously reported, but other elements — like the executive orders — have not.

        In a series of letters dated March 28, 2017, Murray laid out the orders for Perry and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to review and consider, including language to exit the Paris Agreement.

    This is what America will look like if we follow Trump’s climate policies
    Leaked draft reveals a devastated America, up to 8 feet of sea level rise, 18°F Arctic warming–unless we embrace Paris climate deal

    The United States faces a choice between manageable warming and unmanageable catastrophe, according to a leaked draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies.

    The report’s “higher emissions” scenario projects a devastating 8°F to 10°F warming over the interior of this country–and, unimaginably, upwards of 18°F over in the Arctic–by 2071 to 2100. In that case, global sea levels could rise as much as 8 feet, inundating every major coastal city in this country and around the world.


    Fukushima, Numerology And 'Disasters'

    YOU don't have to believe, THEY do

    In the universe numbers are very powerful and sacred. We know nine is the highest number in the universe, because every other number repeats itself. For example ten is supposed to be higher than nine, but flip it over it's really one. Multiply nine by any number and add it up it and goes back to nine, for instance nine times two equal eighteen, but eight plus one equal nine and goes on repetitively, but both nine and the number eleven are mirror numbers.

    Also 11 represent duality and consciousness. But why do most disasters occur on the eleventh date?

    French Beekeepers Sue Bayer (Monsanto) After Cancer-Linked Weedkiller is Found in Their Honey

    The glyphosate saga may not garner as much attention for a while now that Bayer’s Cropscience division owns Monsanto’s chemicals and GMO division, but the concerns, and questions, still remain.

    Bayer has officially said that it will be keeping the Monsanto portfolio of synthetic, toxic agricultural products intact, and that includes the controversial weedkiller, which was deemed a “probable human carcinogen” according to the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer in spring 2015.

    Meanwhile, the lawsuits will continue, and now a co-op of French beekeepers has officially filed a legal complaint against the chemical giant after the controversial substance was found in batches of its honey, greatly threatening its business ventures.

    Trees That Have Lived for Millennia Are Suddenly Dying

    The oldest baobabs are collapsing, and there's only one likely explanation.

    No one can say if baobabs have died off in this way in centuries past; these trees decay very quickly, and leave few traces behind. “But when around 70 percent of your 1,500 to 2,000-year-old trees died within 12 years, it certainly is not normal,” says Erika Wise from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. “It is difficult to come up with a culprit other than climate change.”

    Patrut agrees. Although he originally suspected that Homasi was killed by a disease, none of the fallen trees have shown signs of infection, and the pattern of their deaths doesn’t fit with a spreading contagion. Many of them were found in national parks, which absolves agricultural practices and other local human activities. Instead, Patrut blames “an unprecedented combination of temperature increase and drought in southern Africa, over the past 10 to 15 years.”
