Watch the Skies. #Wizards and #Warlocks. #QAnon

from Neon Revolt:

I’m so glad we have #Planefags looking out for us, because I don’t have the patience for it.

However, I will gladly report their findings, as they keep watch for unusual aerial happenings.

They found some tonight, possibly related to #QAnon drops.

Notably, this P-3C Orion circling this area around Greencastle, Pennslyvania:

Who Is Attacking Russia Insider, Gateway Pundit, and Other Conservative Sites With DDoS? Let’s Send Them a Message!

from Russia Insider:

Three days after the recent US / UK / French missile attacks on Syria, our website was hit by severe DDoS attacks. It’s the most common method for rendering a website inoperable, by bombarding it with more server requests than it can handle. We were knocked out for about 50% of the next 3 days, and experienced hiccups for the next 10 days or so. We alerted you about this in an article as soon as it happened.

Facebook Is Now Ranking News Organizations Based on ‘Trustworthiness’

by Charlie Nash, Breitbart:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed his platform has started to rank news organizations based on “trustworthiness,” with low-ranking sources becoming suppressed.

“We put [that data] into the system, and it is acting as a boost or a suppression, and we’re going to dial up the intensity of that over time,” declared Zuckerberg during a speech at the Rosewood Sand Hill hotel, with media executives in the audience on Tuesday. “We feel like we have a responsibility to further [break] down polarization and find common ground.”

Pee-Gate Dossier Author Gets Millions to Continue Work Against Trump

by Clifford Cunningham, News Wars:

Christopher Steele, the ex-spy who released a discredited opposition dossier claiming Trump paid Russian hookers to pee on a hotel bed, is receiving millions from anonymous donors to continue working against the president.

According to a report released by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Daniel Jones, the president of the Penn Quarter Group and a former staffer for Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) “secured the services” of Steele “to continue exposing Russian interference” after the election.

In addition to Steele, the Penn Quarter Group also hired an associate of Steele’s and the firm Fusion GPS.

British Geopolitics: Enemy of Trump, Enemy of America, Enemy of Peace

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

For President Donald Trump’s presidency to survive and accomplish anything of importance for America’s future, the British attacks on his administration must be defeated.

These attacks have repeatedly aimed to force the President into confrontation with Russia “on Britain’s side,” or be driven out of office by a “Russiagate” scandal invented by British intelligence.

And British geopolitical thinking inside Trump’s administration is pushing him away from every policy to “make America great again” he promised in his campaign.

5 Stories You Missed While The Media Was Obsessing Over Michelle Wolf’s Speech

by Rachel Blevins, The Free Thought Project:

While the mainstream media obsessed over comments made by comedian Michelle Wolf, North and South Korea sent stocks crashing and a city moved forward with clearing cannabis convictions.

The name “Michelle Wolf” has dominated headlines and has become the talk of the mainstream media following the comedian’s speech roasting the Trump Administration at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday. While everyone seems to have an opinion on Wolf’s comments, the fact is that the debate has served as the perfect distraction from several incredibly important news stories from the around the world.

Here are five stories you may have missed while the media was obsessing over Michelle Wolf’s speech:

Why the War on Men Is Hurting Everyone


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

These days, it appears that being a man means you’re crazy. You’re a rapist waiting for a woman to rape. You’re a misogynist, just looking for a woman to oppress. You’re a brute, looking for a woman to punch in the face. You are violent, domineering, and angry.

At least according to the University of Texas at Austin.

They’ve rolled out a program called MasculinUT that treats men as though they are violent rapists just waiting for a woman on whom to force themselves. And, you know, slap around a little, because apparently, that is what men do. The project praises a poster of a black man with a flower crown, but mourns that masculinity “should go further than that.”

Pandora’s Box Blown Wide Open As We Creep Closer To The Completion Of The Globalists ‘Ultimate Seduction’ For Humanity

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

– The Mass Adoption Of AI Is Leading Us Straight Into Scenes From A Science Fiction Movie

According to a 2013 study by Oxford University, 47% or more jobs in America were at risk of being replaced by computers within the following 20 years, a time period of which we are now 1/4 of the way through and already witnessing AI putting people out of some jobs around the world.

While the Providence Journal predicts AI may consume 50% of all finance jobs in the US in the next decade, KTAR News in Phoenix, Arizona reports over 1/3 of all Phoenix-area jobs could be replaced by artificial intelligence in what they call something out of a science-fiction movie creeping closer to mass adoption than many people think.

Quoting a report written by a think tank called ‘New America’, they report that 650,000 people in that area are at risk of losing jobs in positions such as cashiers, retail sales people and food service workers as AI moves in and human beings move out. And while those numbers show predictions running between 1/3 and 1/2 of all US jobs will one day be replaced by AI, those stories don’t do justice to the havoc AI could unleash.


from The Daily Sheeple:

Several cadets have quit and exposed the Austin police department in Texas for training cops to think of the public as cockroaches they are at war with. Rather than training cops to protect and serve, Austin PD appears to want an entire elite class of warriors who view the public as less than human.

According to a group of 10 former Austin Police Department recruits who wanted to become peace officers, just like the military, the Austin PD is training “warriors” instead of “guardians.” Although this should hardly come as a surprise because the Supreme Court has already declared that cops don’t have to protect or “guard” you at all. They are to follow orders, extort (and sometimes flat out steal) money for their department, and enforce laws that are often tyrannical and the very definition of a human rights violation.

Dial T for Tyranny: While America Feuds, the Police State Shifts Into High Gear

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

“Big Brother does not watch us, by his choice. We watch him, by ours. There is no need for wardens or gates or Ministries of Truth. When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show Business

What characterizes American government today is not so much dysfunctional politics as it is ruthlessly contrived governance carried out behind the entertaining, distracting and disingenuous curtain of political theater. And what political theater it is, diabolically Shakespearean at times, full of sound and fury, yet in the end, signifying nothing.

US Claims of “Russian Meddling” Exposes Its Own Global Meddling

by Tony Cartalucci, New Eastern Outlook:

The 13 Russians indicted allegedly represent the “Internet Research Agency” merely referred to as “the organization” throughout the FBI’s highly publicized indictment (PDF). The Internet Research Agency was allegedly run by Concord Management and Consulting.

However, the FBI failed to establish any link between the Internet Research Agency’s supposed operations and the Russian government. It attempts to claim that Concord Management and Consulting and Concord Catering are “related Russian entities” with various Russian government contracts – however the FBI failed to detail what this statement meant, merely insinuating that the Internet Research Agency may have been another Russian government contract.

The “Russian meddling” described in the FBI indictment consists of Facebook ads and the creation of accounts posing as American social media personalities commentating on US political issues. The FBI’s indictment failed to list any instances of Russian government money, or money from an alleged intermediary being funneled into any actual US political parties, opposition or activist groups, or any US-based media organizations.

What Can Be Done? — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

It is up to Europe whether or not the Earth dies in nuclear Armageddon.

European governments do not realize their potential to save the world from Washington’s aggression, because the western Europeans are accustomed to being Washington’s vassal states since the end of World War 2, and the eastern and central Europeans have accepted Washington’s vassalage since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Vassalage pays well if all the costs are not counted.

By joining NATO, the eastern and central Europeans permitted Washington to move US military presence to Russia’s borders. This military presence on Russia’s borders gave Washington undue confidence that Russia also could be coerced into a vassal state existence. Despite the dire fate of the two finest armies ever assembled—Napoleon’s Grand Army and that of Germany’s Wehrmacht—Washington hasn’t learned that the two rules of warfare are: (1) Don’t march on Russia. (2) Don’t march on Russia.

Update on the Most Splendid Rental Bubbles & Crashes in the US

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

Chicago rents collapse, New York’s swoon, Southern California’s boom. And the US average hides all the drama on the ground.

The situation with rents in the most expensive US rental markets can be summarized like this: Free-fall in Chicago, where the median asking rent for two-bedroom apartments has plunged 32% from its peak, a similar collapse in rents in Honolulu, double-digit declines from the peak in New York City and Washington DC, mixed movements in the Bay Area, a blistering boom in Southern California, and everything in between.
