THIS TRAIT SHARED IN COMMON BY INTERNET TROLLS AND POLITICIANS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS

0

by Claire Bernish, The Daily Sheeple:
Sport to some, digital bullying to others — whether you abide online trolling or find the inflammatory, sometimes cruel, practice repulsive — the Internet’s myriad disparate troll armies are apparently here to stay.

Seeding malcontent, disputation, division, needless provocation, and, often, chaos, trolls merit their characterization by the hordes as the bane of the Internet.

But, upon examining the psychology of these ruthless keyboard provocateurs, their likely detriment to civil discourse — already evinced in the mimicry of youth — sounds a warning not to be ignored.

New Research Shows Guccifer 2.0 Files Were Copied Locally, Not Hacked

by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:
New meta-analysis has emerged from a document published today by an independent researcher known as The Forensicator, which suggests that files eventually published by the Guccifer 2.0 persona were likely initially downloaded by a person with physical access to a computer possibly connected to the internal DNC network. The individual most likely used a USB drive to copy the information. The groundbreaking new analysis irrevocably destroys the Russian hacking narrative, and calls the actions of Crowdstrike and the DNC into question.

More Wildlife Fish are Experiencing ‘Intersex’ – What Could be Causing This?

by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:
More wildlife are experiencing strange reproductive abnormalities, but why? In a study released last year, the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFW) tested male smallmouth and largemouth bass from 19 National Wildlife Refuges. The researchers found that 85{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the smallmouth bass “had signs of female reproductive parts.” Of the largemouth bass, 27{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} were intersex. What could be causing this?

Luke Iwanowicz, a USGS research biologist and lead author of the paper, says:

“It is not clear what the specific cause of intersex is in these fish. This study was designed to identify locations that may warrant further investigation. Chemical analyses of fish or water samples at collection sites were not conducted, so we cannot attribute the observation of intersex to specific, known estrogenic endocrine—disrupting chemicals.”

WARNING SIGNS ABOUND FOR U.S. ECONOMY

Contributed by Harley Schlanger, LaRouchePAC, SGT Report:
In the build-up to the G20 summit in Hamburg, there was much happy talk coming from Trans-Atlantic government officials, Central bankers and the media about the arrival of the long-awaited “economic recovery.” From Brussels, European Central Bank (ECB) chairman Mario Draghi sounded cautiously optimistic, telling European Union leaders on June 23 that the EU is experiencing economic growth and an “improving business climate”, while ECB Executive Board member Peter Praet was much less constrained. In a meeting of bankers in Paris on July 6, he declared that the recovery “has gathered some further momentum recently,” and that there is a “solid upswing” becoming an “increasingly solid cyclical recovery.”

These Charts Show the Fed’s Stress Tests as a Dangerous Illusion

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall Street On Parade:

Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. The charts above show how four of the largest Wall Street banks traded like clones of one another yesterday. Their share prices rallied at almost identical times and the rallies faded at almost identical times. The chart contrasting the trading pattern of JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley is particularly interesting. JPMorgan’s Chase bank has thousands of retail commercial bank branches spread across the United States. Morgan Stanley, on the other hand, has approximately 17,000 retail stockbrokers, now known as financial advisors. What both firms have in common is that they are among the five banks in the country that control a monster pile of derivatives on Wall Street. Ditto for the other two banks illustrated above: Citigroup and Bank of America.

THE ROYALS, PEDOPHILIA & MURDER

by SGT, SGT Report:

From child sex trafficking inside Buckingham Palace to the assassination of Princess Diana on August 31, 1997, the British Royal family has long been the center of deep rooted corruption, pedophilia, and as many have argued, Satanism.

CNN Silent on Claims it Hired ‘Al-Qaeda Correspondent’

by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars:
CNN is refusing to respond to claims that it hired a correspondent who worked and sympathized with Al-Qaeda jihadists in Syria.

Left-wing website Alternet documents how, “Star CNN correspondent Clarissa Ward worked with al-Qaeda “media man” Bilal Abdul Kareem to gain access to her “heroes on the ground.”

While doing coverage for CNN’s Undercover in Syria show, Ward visited the Al-Nusra held areas of eastern Aleppo and Idlib and conformed with the local sharia dress code by wearing a full black niqab.

Comey Bombshell: FBI Director’s Leaked Trump Memos Contained Classified Information

0

from ZeroHedge:
Amid the constant media outrage over everything Trump, Trump, Trump, some might have forgotten that in the political rollercoaster over the past 12 months, there were numerous other high-profile individuals involved, including not only former DOJ head Loretta Lynch, whose every interaction with the Clinton campaign is about to be probed under a Congressional microscope, but the man who some say started it all: former FBI Director James Comey.

First loved by the Democrats when he personally absolved Hillary Clinton of any sins regarding her (ab)use of her personal email server, then furiously loathed when he reopened the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton one week before the election, then finally getting into a feud with President Trump which cost his him job, Comey ultimately admitted to leaking at least one memo which contained personal recollections of his conversations with the president, in hopes of launching a special probe into the president’s alleged Russian collusion.
