President Ronald Reagan’s White House Science Adviser Warns: Ignoring The Vulnerability Of The Electrical Grid Is A Death Sentence For Americans
by Dr. William R. Graham and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, All News Pipeline:
In 2008, the statutory Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack delivered over 100 recommendations to Congress to protect the national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures — including communications, transportation, energy, business and finance, food and water. We were hopeful the job would get done.
Following an EMP attack, another Carrington event or a massive cyber attack that takes down the grid, 326 million Americans could not long survive bereft of the electronic civilization that sustains their lives. It would be a civilization killer.
The EMP commission reports are “good news,” because they prove there is no excuse for the nation to be vulnerable. Electric grids and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures can be protected — affordably. For example, the 2008 report estimates that the electric grid’s bulk-power system can be hardened to survive for a few billion dollars.
Is It Okay To Celebrate Halloween? For Many Americans, It Is A Time For Blood Rituals And Unspeakable Acts Of Evil
by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
What I am about to share with you is incredibly disturbing. Every year on October 31st, some of the most horrifying acts imaginable are carried out in dark corners and back rooms all across America. In this article, you are going to read about some of those acts. But for most Americans, Halloween is a supposedly “innocent” holiday that is all about dressing up, eating lots of candy and having fun. When I was growing up, I gladly participated in the festivities too, because I didn’t understand what the holiday was all about. According to the National Retail Federation, approximately 70 percent of all Americans celebrate Halloween, and a total of somewhere around 9 billion dollars will be spent on the holiday this year. But most Americans do not understand that almost all of our modern “Halloween traditions” have their roots in a bloody ancient pagan festival known as Samhain…

Facebook is not private. They are partnered with a NATO backed think tank to censor their platform that is funded by the US government.
“Facebook is a private company and can delete any pages they want,” has been repeated ad nauseam since Alex Jones was wiped from its platform. While it is certainly true that a private company can and should be able to choose who they associate with, the idea that Facebook is private is not accurate. For this reason, the recent purge of hundreds of alternative media sites, including the Free Thought Project, was not only questionable, but unconstitutional.

THE SEXUAL ASSAULTS OF BILL CLINTON AND WHY HILLARY LIES ABOUT THEM
There is a line in the Freenauts catchy music video “Justice for Danney Williams“ a ballad about Bill Clinton’s abandoned African-American son who was banished by Hillary. “Why you always lyin’?” goes the refrain. Indeed it is the central question about Hillary Clinton.

Turkish media claimed one of the leads Turkish police investigated claimed Saudi forces inside the consulate killed missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi and “evaporated” his remains with acid.
Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News details the claim:

MSM won’t show this side of liberalism
According to the liberal mainstream media, the “leftist mob” activity that Republican lawmakers and Trump supporters have raised concern about doesn’t exist.
Yet somehow, Infowars reporter Millie Weaver can easily find large groups of disorderly leftists with the intent on causing trouble or violence, A.K.A., a leftist mob.

On Thursday, Facebook announced they were unpublishing, or purging, over 500 pages and 200 accounts who are accused of spreading political spam. Several of these pages and writers were also removed from Twitter on the same day.
“Today, we’re removing 559 Pages and 251 accounts that have consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior,” Facebook stated in a blog post. Facebook states that the people behind this alleged spam “create networks of Pages using fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names” and “post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups”.

It is hurricane season in the United States (until November 30th!), and while most of us think about things like batteries, canned foods, and drinking water, we don’t give a lot of thought to preparing our technology and gadgets for a potentially devastating storm. Here are some basic tips to help keep your sanity and your data together!
1. Move electronics to a safe room off the ground and away from windows.
This sounds like pretty basic advice, but you might be surprised by how many people never even think about it, especially if they have decided to hunker down and play on their devices while riding out the storm. Storm Sense 101 tells us to unplug all electronics from the wall and disconnect Ethernet cables from computers and docking stations. You should also put small electronics in sealed plastic bags if they do not have waterproof cases.

“If the freedom of speech be taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”—George Washington
Living in a representative republic means that each person has the right to take a stand for what they think is right, whether that means marching outside the halls of government, wearing clothing with provocative statements, or simply holding up a sign.
That’s what the First Amendment is supposed to be about.
Yet through a series of carefully crafted legislative steps and politically expedient court rulings, government officials have managed to disembowel this fundamental freedom, rendering it with little more meaning than the right to file a lawsuit against government officials.

The G-20 in Buenos Aires on November 30 could set the world on fire – perhaps literally. Let’s start with the US-China trade war. Washington won’t even start discussing trade with China at the G-20 unless Beijing comes up with a quite detailed list of potential concessions.
The word from Chinese negotiators is not at all bleak. Some sort of agreement could be reached on about a third of US demands. Debate on another third could ensue. But the last third is absolutely off-limits – due to Chinese national security imperatives, such as refusing to allow the opening of the domestic cloud computing market to foreign competition.
