By initiating an attack on the Syrian province of Latakia, home to the Russia-operated Khmeimim Air Base, Israel, France and the United States certainly understood they were flirting with disaster. Yet they went ahead with the operation anyways.
On the pretext that Iran was preparing to deliver a shipment of weapon production systems to Hezbollah in Lebanon, Israeli F-16s, backed by French missile launches in the Mediterranean, destroyed what is alleged to have been a Syrian Army ammunition depot.

Senator Dianne Feinstein’s campaigns have received money from George Soros-funded and tied groups.
I wanted to follow some of Feinstein’s money that came from contributors to her campaign and the first name on the list that popped up was a group known as Emily’s List. I had heard the name before and looked it up on DiscoverTheNetworks where I found near the top of the description another group I had heard of before, America Votes. This made us look up Emily’s list first to see just what the group is and we found that this group only contributes to Democratic women.

Payment chaos: For bottom-line-obsessed bank executives, IT systems are an expense to be slashed. The results are in.
Internet banking has become a crisis-prone business in the UK, as the online platforms of big banks suffer regular outages and other forms of IT disruption.
Friday morning, the online systems of the Royal Bank of Scotland, Ulster Bank and Natwest — all part of the RBS Banking Group — crashed in unison, leaving millions of customers unable to pay bills or view their balance on their online and mobile accounts.

Evidence The Housing Bubble Is Bursting?: “Home Sellers Are Slashing Prices At The Highest Rate In At Least Eight Years”
by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
The housing market indicated that a crisis was coming in 2008. Is the same thing happening once again in 2018? For several years, the housing market has been one of the bright spots for the U.S. economy. Home prices, especially in the hottest markets on the east and west coasts, had been soaring. But now that has completely changed, and home sellers are cutting prices at a pace that we have not seen since the last recession. In case you are wondering, this is definitely a major red flag for the economy. According to CNBC, home sellers are “slashing prices at the highest rate in at least eight years”…

My Generation is the last one to have known privacy and to have lived out most of our lives in freedom.
I remember when driving licenses did not have photos and most certainly not fingerprints. A driving license was issued on proof of birth date alone.
Prior to the appearance of automobiles IDs did not exist in democratic nations. You were who you said you were.
The intrusive questions that accost us every day, even when doing something simple as reporting a telephone or Internet connection being out or inquiring about a credit card charge, were impermissible. I remember when you could telephone a utility company, for example, have the telephone answered no later than the third ring with a real person on the line who could clear up the problem in a few minutes without having to know your Social Security number and your mother’s maiden name. Today, after half an hour with robot voices asking intrusive questions you might finally get a real person somewhere in Asia who is controlled by such a tight system of rules that the person is, in effect, a robot. The person is not permitted to use any judgment or discretion and you listen to advertisements for another half hour while you wait for a supervisor who promises to have the matter looked into.

HUGE: White House Drafts Executive Order – Calls for Federal Probes into Google, Facebook for Bias and Censorship …Update: Full Text
by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:
It’s no secret that the Silicon Valley tech giants discriminate against conservatives and conservative content.
Last week President Trump warned Google about it’s biased practices against conservatives and conservative content in their search feature.
Twitter has also been accused of shadow-banning Republican politicians and conservative voices.
And Facebook is probably the worst violator. Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election.
