“This Plane Was Designed By Clowns, Who Are Supervised By Monkeys” – Shocking Boeing Emails Reveal Contempt For Management, FAA

0

from ZeroHedge:

We have never heard a more damning description of the relationship between a corporation and its regulators than a line that has been plucked from a batch of company emails that Boeing has just handed over to the FAA (and which the FAA has, apparently, leaked to the press).

Per the New York Times:

“This airplane is designed by clowns, who are in turn supervised by monkeys…”

Ayn Rand Would Laugh

by Gary Christenson, Miles Franklin:

The western world has ignored economic realities for decades. It’s not a Republican or Democratic problem. Banking, power, fiat currencies, dishonest money and transfers of wealth are the issues.

The consequences of ignoring reality are uncomfortable and dangerous. However, most people prefer palatable, easy to digest and believable stories.

In the United States, the U.K., Europe, and Japan it is comforting to believe:
Debt has increased exponentially for decades and for over 100 years in the US. We want to believe debt will grow for another century. (It won’t.)

New York Police to Implement “Textalyzer” to Monitor Cellphone Use While Driving

0

By John Vibes ,activistpost.com:

Police in the “Empire State” of New York have reportedly proposed the implementation of a new device that would be able to detect when drivers are using their cell phones. The device has become known as the “textalyzer,” and although it will not be ready for several months, New York drivers can likely expect to have their cellphone usage monitored to a degree that drivers have never experienced before.

According to the information released thus far, these devices will only be used when there is an accident, to determine who was actually responsible. If the device is only used for this purpose, then it may not pose a serious threat to privacy and may actually be a useful tool for dispute resolution. However, as we have seen with many government programs in the past, these excuses are used so we will initially accept the program, and then once the door is open the program can be used for more invasive spying.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo told the Associated Press on Wednesday that authorities were reviewing exactly how the device would be used.

“Despite laws to ban cellphone use while driving, some motorists still continue to insist on texting behind the wheel — placing themselves and others at substantial risk. This review will examine the effectiveness of using this new emerging technology to crack down on this reckless behavior and thoroughly evaluate its implications to ensure we protect the safety and privacy of New Yorkers,” he said.

The officer will reportedly need to plug their device into the person’s cellphone to discover if they have been using the phone, but in theory, an officer could use this device even if they pull over a driver that has not been in an accident.

Proponents of this new device insist that the officer would not be able to access personal information on the phone, such as specific browsing or text history, but it is not clear what the officer will see when the phone is scanned.

The technology is being developed by an Israel-based company called Cellebrite.

Privacy activists and experts have suggested that this technology goes too far, and have pointed out that police already have the power to retroactively check if a person was using their cellphone in case of an accident through obtaining a warrant. This device could be allowing the officers to conduct a warrantless search of a cellphone.

Rainey Reitman, of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said that this technology could be a slippery slope.

“I am extremely nervous about handing a cellphone to a law enforcement officer and allowing them in any way to forensically analyze it. This is a technology that is incredibly problematic and at the same time is unnecessary. There are already legal avenues for a police officer,” she said.

Analyst Reveals His Gold Prediction Secret: It’s All About Oil

from Birch Gold Group:

This week, Your News to Know rounds up the latest top stories involving gold and the overall economy. Stories include: Gold to rise alongside oil, buying the platinum’s dip, and the tale of a unique 54-pound gold brick.

Gold should follow oil as the latter skyrockets in price

It’s well-known that when gold soars, silver invariably follows. This kind of close correlation could soon be established between gold and another commodity that has been soaring recently: oil. Many might not be familiar with the gold-to-oil ratio, which tracks how many barrels of oil are necessary to buy an ounce of gold.

Trump: “I Think I Know” Who Was Behind 9/11 Attacks

from ZeroHedge:

President Trump says he knows who was behind the September 11, 2001 attacks, telling ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos “Iraq did not knock down the World Trade Center,” adding “It were other people. And I think I know who the other people were. And you might also.

Nearly 3,000 people died when 19 mostly-Saudi terrorists hijacked four passenger planes, flying them into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, while the fourth went down in a Pennsylvania field after passengers allegedly fought back. Astonishingly, the passports of three hijackers were recovered; two at the Pennsylvania crash site, and one from the World Trade Center grounds. While nobody claimed responsibility for the attacks for several months, the NSA and German intelligence reported intercepting communications pointing to al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, after which investigators linked the 19 hijackers to the terrorist organization.

The Benefits of Economic Collapse

0

by Doug Casey, International Man:

I first began to predict a major economic collapse back in 1999. Although I understood that it was at least fifteen years off and possibly more, I believed that it would be wise to begin to prepare for it then, as the actual date of collapse could not be predicted. (Better to be a few years early than even one day too late.)

Not surprisingly, back then, this prediction appeared to most people to not only be unlikely, but laughable.

Rand Paul: Trump May Take Executive Action To Repeal Obamacare

by Steve Watson ,infowars.com:

 

Senator Rand Paul is advising President Trump on a potential executive order to repeal and replace Obamacare, a move that he says could help millions of Americans who cannot afford skyrocketing premiums.

In interviews with earlier this week, Paul noted that Trump is considering penning an executive order to get the job done, following the failure of Republicans in Congress to pass legislation.

“I just got off the phone with the president, and I think he and I both want to get something done,” Paul said.

“What I’m talking to him about is that I think through executive action, I think he can legalize the health associations that I’ve been talking about.”

Paul says he is planning to have further talks with Trump this week, noting that there is a precedent for the president to take action, given that under the the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, the Executive can decide how private companies provide benefits.

 

Paul is pushing for so called ‘association health plans,’ which would provide an avenue for Americans to get health more affordable insurance in large groups across state lines.

“It’s the same principle as Wal-Mart,” Paul said. “Wal-Mart can buy in such large bulk that you can get milk for a very reasonable price often just barely above their cost, and they do it because they have such large buying power.”

“I am calling publicly for what I’ve been working on privately for months: the Department of Labor should revise its rules to allow virtually any group to become a group for insurance purposes,” Paul noted.

Squatters break into a vacant home in Oakland then demand the owners allow them to live there “in the interest of justice”

Two homeless mothers have temporarily beaten back an eviction attempt brought by the property owners of the vacant West Oakland home they have occupied – without the owner’s permission – for the past six weeks.

On Monday Judge Patrick McKinney heard from both sides inside a jammed-packed courtroom before delaying a decision on whether or not the women would be evicted.
