  6. US RUNS DEFENSE FOR OUR APARTHEID ALLY

    US President Barack Obama, this week, signed into law a sweeping trade agreement which protects Israel from boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) by countries who oppose the ongoing military occupation of Palestine.

    The agreement — H.R. 644: Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 — was passed 75-20, on February 11, and later signed into law by the president, on February 24.

    The agreement, according to Ma’an News Agency, reiterates that US Congress “opposes politically motivated actions that penalize or otherwise limit commercial relations specifically with Israel,” referring specifically to BDS activities.

    The act also cites that congress “supports efforts” to prevent international organizations or governments from carrying out investigation or prosecution of US citizens who do business with “Israel, with Israeli entities, or in any territory controlled by Israel.”
    The provision, in effect, allows US citizens immunity from conducting trade with illegal Israeli settlements, while its terminology fails to distinguish Israeli settlements from the state of Israel.

      Obama in a signing statement indicated he wouldn't adhere to that section as it applied to the settlements; however, his reign will be short lived, another 10 months. A president Rubio would love the clause as it would give him further excuse for diminishing the 1st amendment.

      If there is any doubt that the US is currently in the pocket of Israel and the Lobby one only has to asks how many unique clauses are in the treaty that call out a specific country by name as beneficiary.

  7. Household Income Trends: December 2015

    Median Household Income Increases to $57,153 in December 2015

    Summary of Key Findings

    According to new data derived from the monthly Current Population Survey (CPS),
    median annual household income in December 2015 was $57,153, up $424 (or 0.7
    percent) from the November 2015 median of $56,729.

    As noted in our previous report,
    we have recaptured all of the ground in the median lost since the beginning of the last
    recession in December 2007 ($56,698). The Sentier Household Income Index for
    November 2015 was 99.6 (January 2000 = 100). Thus, we are getting very close to the
    real level of median annual household income that existed in January 2000 ($57,371).

    These findings come from a report issued today by Sentier Research, titled “Household
    Income Trends: December 2015,” which presents monthly trends in household income
    from January 2000 to December 2015.

    There is a generally upward trend in income that has been evident since the low point in
    our household income series that occurred in August 2011. Median income in December
    2015 ($57,153) was 4.3 percent higher than in December 2014 ($54,785), and 10.2
    percent higher than in August 2011 ($51,859). However, a significant portion of the
    increase in real median annual household income is due to the falling price of energy. For
    example, if the CPI less food and energy is used instead of the CPI including all items,
    the increase in real median annual household income between December 2014 and
    December 2015 was 2.9 percent, not 4.3 percent.

    The period since August 2011 has been marked by an uneven, but generally upward trend
    in the level of real median annual household income. Many of the month-to-month
    changes in median income during this period have not been statistically significant.
    However, the cumulative effect of the various month-to-month changes since August
    2011 resulted in the income improvement noted above. (See Figure 1 at the back of this
    report.)

  8. The Anti Defamation League (Read Zionist Shakedown Lobby) had to step over Trump’s endorsement from Sessions>

    Jewish groups are up in arms after Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump declined to disavow support by the Ku Klux Klan in a televised interview Sunday.

    During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, host Jake Tapper repeatedly asked Trump if he would distance himself from the white supremacist organization, prompting the candidate to respond that he did not know “anything about David Duke.”

    On Friday, Trump distanced himself from Duke, a former KKK leader, telling reporters: “I didn’t even know he endorsed me.”



    On Sunday, however, he moderated his statements, telling Tapper he did not “know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists.”

    “I have to look at the group.

    I mean, I don’t know what group you’re talking about,” he continued.

    “You wouldn’t want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I’d have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them and certainly I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong,” the candidate said. “You may have groups in there that are totally fine – it would be very unfair. So give me a list of the groups and I’ll let you know.”

    Rabbi Steven Wernick, CEO of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, took to Facebook to condemn the politician, stating that while it would be inappropriate as a faith leader to discuss his political preferences, “there are moments when one must speak out” concerning “what they are against.”

      The poll results, from Democratic and Republican legislative races, have surprised many leading Dems, virtually all of whom have endorsed Clinton, while confounding and energizing GOP leaders, many of whom until recently have been opposed to Trump.

  14. WASHINGTON – The U.S. military has launched a newly aggressive campaign of cyberattacks against Islamic State militants, targeting the group's abilities to use social media and the Internet to recruit fighters and inspire followers, U.S. officials told The Associated Press.

    The surge of computer-based military operations by U.S. Cyber Command began shortly after Defense Secretary Ash Carter prodded commanders at Fort Meade, Maryland, last month to ramp up the fight against the Islamic State group on the cyber front.

    U.S. officials confirmed that operations launched out of Fort Meade have focused on disrupting the group's online activities. The officials said the effort is getting under way as operators try a range of attacks to see what works and what doesn't. They declined to discuss details, other than to say that the attacks include efforts to prevent the group from distributing propaganda, videos, or other types of recruiting and messaging on social media sites such as Twitter, and across the Internet in general.

    Other attacks could include attempts to stop insurgents from conducting financial or logistical transactions online.

    Several U.S. officials spoke about the cyber campaign on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. Much of the effort is classified.

    Carter mentioned the operations briefly Thursday, telling a House Appropriations subcommittee only that Cyber Command is beginning to conduct operations against the Islamic State group. He declined to say more in a public setting.

    The more aggressive attacks come after months of pressure from Carter, who has been frustrated with the belief that the Pentagon — and particularly Cyber Command — was losing the war in the cyber domain.

    1. Late last year Carter met with commanders, telling them they had 30 days to bring him options for how the military could use its cyberwarfare capabilities against the group's deadly insurgency across Iraq and Syria, and spreading to Libya and Afghanistan. Officials said he told commanders that beefing up cyberwarfare against Islamic State was a test for them, and that they should have both the capability and the will to wage the online war.

      But the military cyber fight is limited by concerns within the intelligence agencies that blocking the group's Internet access could hurt intelligence gathering.

      Officials said Carter told commanders that he wanted creative options that would allow the U.S. to impact Islamic State without diminishing the indications or warnings intelligence officers can glean about what the group is doing.

      On Jan. 27, Carter and Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, went to Fort Meade for an update.

      Officials familiar with Carter's meetings said the secretary was frustrated that as Cyber Command has grown and developed over the past several years, it was still focused on the cyberthreats from nations, such as Iran, Russia and China, rather than building a force to block the communications and propaganda campaigns of Internet-savvy insurgents.

      "He was right to say they could be more forward leaning about what they could possibly do against ISIS," said James Lewis, a cybersecurity expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "You could disrupt their support networks, their business networks, their propaganda and recruitment networks."

      However, Lewis added, the U.S. needs to be careful about disrupting the Internet to insure that attacks don't also affect civilian networks or systems needed for critical infrastructure and other public necessities.

      U.S. officials have long been stymied by militants' ability to use the Internet as a vehicle for inspiring so-called lone wolf attackers in Western nations, radicalized after reading propaganda easily available online.

      Delete
    2. "Why should they be able to communicate? Why should they be using the Internet?" Carter said during testimony before the defense appropriations subcommittee. "The Internet shouldn't be used for that purpose."

      He added that the U.S. can conduct cyber operations under the legal authorities associated with the ongoing war against the Islamic State group.

      The U.S. has also struggled to defeat high-tech encryption techniques used by Islamic State and other groups to communicate. Experts have been working to find ways to defeat those programs.

      Cyber Command is relatively new. Created in 2009, it did not begin operating until October 2010.

      Early on, its key focus was on defending military networks, which are probed and attacked millions of times a day. But defense leaders also argued at length over the emerging issues surrounding cyberwarfare and how it should be incorporated.

      The Pentagon is building 133 cyber teams by 2018, including 27 that are designed for combat and will work with regional commands to support warfighting operations. There will be 68 teams assigned to defend Defense Department networks and systems, 13 that would respond to major cyberattacks against the U.S., and 25 support teams.

  25. WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)— The primary election system is proving once again to have some drawbacks as a way to choose presidential candidates.

    The Republican Party is going nuts as Donald Trump racks up primary victories and delegates, making it increasingly likely he will secure the nomination against the will of the establishment.

    On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton’s romp in South Carolina increases her chances of wrapping up her party’s nomination in March.

    The problem is that she is winning the nomination by capturing the African-American vote in states she is bound to lose in the general election.

    No amount of turnout by minority voters in November is going to turn the solidly red states of South Carolina, Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee, or Texas into blue states, even though Clinton has won or is expected to win the primaries in these states with crushing margins.

    The majority of Democratic voters in these states may be African-American or Latino, but white voters gravitate to the Republican Party and will deliver these states as usual to the Republican nominee.

    And that nominee, thanks to his runaway popularity in the primaries, is likely to be Trump.

    The problem for the Democrats is that Clinton’s prowess with minority voters won’t necessarily win her the big swing states that will push the Electoral College victory one way or the other — Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Wisconsin and some smaller ones.

    It is precisely here that Trump’s appeal to white blue collar voters could tip the scales and turn many of these states red in 2016.

    Combine this with the enthusiasm factor that is making Republican voter turnout higher than usual in the primaries, while Democratic numbers are lagging, and you have a plausible case for Trump, if he is the nominee, beating Clinton.

    Trump bragged in last week’s Republican debate in that he is expanding the base of Republican voters.

    “But one thing I’m also going to do, I’m going to be getting — bringing a lot of people in who are Democrats, who are independents, and you’re seeing that with the polls, because if you look at anywhere, look at any of the elections, every single election, it has been record-setting,” he said, referring to the first four primaries. “I think I have something to do with that.”

    Ironically, it is the white blue-collar workers who are responding to Sanders’s message of a rigged economy and oppressive inequality who could switch their allegiance to Trump instead of Clinton.

    So the Democratic primaries may preponderantly favor the candidate who has less chance of beating Trump in the swing states in the general election, while the Republican primaries could result in a nominee who abjures Republican orthodoxy but may win the White House.

    1. a nominee who abjures Republican orthodoxy but may win the White House.

      Which does dovetail nicely with the comment from South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley

      “I think what he’ll do to the Republican Party is really make us question who we are and what we’re about. And that’s something we don’t want to see happen.”

      A bit surprising. A week ago, SodaStream vowed to shut down the entire plant if Israel refused to re-issue the work permits.

      Second thoughts, evidently.

      Israel would rather make a political point, I suppose. The have put a lot of ink into portraying the BDS as a job killer for Palestinians.

  27. My Aunt died in my arms aged 98 1/2 at Good Samaritan Village, Moscow, Idaho after living a wonderful life. I placed here there after her pneumonia as I couldn't bath and care for her properly. They called me that morning saying she is going now, come. Raced up there. She was waiting until I came, they said. I told her I loved her. And lay with her in my arms.

    She after a bit tilted her head slightly and that was that.

    Go fuck yourself ratass.

    I gave her a Christian burial with all her old friends attending than scattered her ashes out at the farm where she grew up.

    She was the best person I've ever known. Never angry, always helpful.

    Truly wonderful.

    I look forward to seeing her again.

    1. Before that I cared for her something like 7 or 8 years.

      Which is nothing.

      She cared for her mother to the point she had worn a hole through a Persian rug from standing there tending to Grandmother.
