Director Of National Intelligence: Russia Not Behind Last Week's Cyber Attack

*DoD Buzz*: *Russia May Not Be Behind Internet Attack: Intel Director* A non-nation state actor — not the Russian government — may have been behind the recent internet attack that crippled many popular sites across U.S., according to the man who oversees U.S. intelligence agencies. “The investigation is still going on; there is a lot of data that we have gathered here, but that appears to be preliminarily the case,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on Tuesday during a live-streamed discussion organized by the Council on Foreign Relations.

U.S. Director of National Intelligence: 'North Korea Will Not Give Up the Nuclear Weapons'

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 38 minutes ago
*Reuters*: *Getting North Korea to give up nuclear bomb probably 'lost cause': U.S. spy chief* The U.S. policy of trying to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons "is probably a lost cause" and the best that could be hoped for is a cap on the country's nuclear capability, the Director of U.S. National Intelligence James Clapper said on Tuesday. However, underscoring conflicting views in the Obama administration, the State Department said U.S. policy was unchanged and continued to be to seek the "verifiable denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula.

Why Is It Taking So Long To Defeat The Islamic State In Their Libyan Stronghold At Sirte

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 38 minutes ago
*Washington Post*: *Why it’s taking so long for the U.S. and its allies to finish off the Islamic State in Libya* A U.S. air campaign against Islamic State militants in Libya, which was supposed to be a brisk illustration of the effectiveness of U.S. support for local forces, has turned into an extended operation with no clear end in sight. About 100 militants are believed to remain in the coastal city of Sirte, which in 2015 became the most important Islamic State stronghold outside of Iraq and Syria. They are holed up in a small, densely packed residential area. For months, U.S... more »

Tribute to the Last Honorable US Senator: The Story of Paul Wellstone's Likely Assassination 14 Years Ago

Joachim Hagopian at American Empire Exposed - 42 minutes ago
On October 25th, 2002 the last great hero of the common people in the US Senate was very likely murdered by agents of the shadow US crime cabal government otherwise known as the Bush-Cheney regime. His wife and daughter and two pilots also died in the air crash. Paul Wellstone's story deserves to be retold and Americans need to be reminded that criminals in and out of our government still need to be punished for their unindicted crimes. This article was written as both a tribute to an outstanding American patriot and a reexamination of his probable assassination by criminals still on... more »

A Government Fraud - Take a Bonus to Re-enlist for the CA National Guard

Charles R. Anderson, Ph.D. at An Objectivist Individualist - 3 hours ago
Government lawyers in the Pentagon are demanding that California National Guard members who took bonuses to sign up for re-enlistment and future possible deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan ten years ago, now have to pay back those bonuses. The government was not authorized to make them. Now, how likely is it that the service members knew that government officials were unauthorized to offer the bonuses that helped the government to solve its shortage of war-fighters? Of course most people hearing about this wonder how hard it would be for them if the government asked them to pay b... more »

Wikipedia *William Hartung, Real Clear World/Tom Dispatch*: *Why Is It So Hard to Reduce the Pentagon Budget?* Through good times and bad, regardless of what’s actually happening in the world, one thing is certain: in the long run, the Pentagon budget won’t go down. It’s not that that budget has never been reduced. At pivotal moments, like the end of World War II as well as war's end in Korea and Vietnam, there were indeed temporary downturns, as there was after the Cold War ended.

Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant

Here’s the press release and accompanying gee-whiz graph: [image: antarctic-co2] Is this something about which to be concerned? Well, just remember what 400 ppm actually means. That means this trace gas, the second of the four main greenhouse gases by which this planet is able to maintain a temperature sufficiently equable for us to survive on its surface, is now 1/2500th of all the gases in the atmosphere. 0.04%.

Rigged Election: US Blaming Russia For Future ‘Falsified Voter Fraud’

US officials claim that if anybody produces evidence of voter fraud in the coming weeks, it will be a Russian plot to undermine people’s confidence in American democracy.

The US Military enticed many soldiers to re-enlist in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars by offering them cash bonuses of over $15,000. Now many years later, the Pentagon is asking thousands of veterans to pay back the “improper” bonuses that they accepted in good faith, because of mismanagement and corruption in the California National Guard.

According to Reddit: Of course, people would say that McCain and Romney held a higher lead with mail-in ballots in Florida than Trump (assuming that most republicans will vote for the republican candidate — which they most likely will). That is true, but it is highly misleading... more »

U.S. Mission Creep In Iraq

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*Forbes:* *The U.S. Military's Gradual Return To Iraq [Infographic]* In late September, President Obama authorized sending 600 additional U.S. troops to Iraq to assist local forces in the offensive to retake the city of Mosul. After ISIS overran much of northern and western Iraq in 2014, the Pentagon rushed 300 troops to defend Baghdad. In the months since, the U.S. has continued to quietly expand its presence in the country with troop levels reaching 2,500 by January 2015. According to the Pentagon, the majority of the troops have been training and advising Iraqi security forces ... more »

Smoke rises at Islamic State militants' positions in the town of Naweran near Mosul. REUTERS/Azad Lashkari *Alastair Sloan, Middle East Monitor*: *The military battle for Mosul may have begun, but the real battle has yet to start* Nobody I’ve spoken to about the recently-launched battle for Mosul is in a particularly optimistic mood. The Iraqi soldiers are nervous because they know from bitter previous experience how dangerous Daesh can make a city with their adept use of booby traps.

False Flag: Trump Supporters To Be Blamed For Gunning Down Democrats

Edmondo Burr at Your News Wire - 1 day ago
A constitutional American citizen says Clinton operatives are getting ready to gun down innocent people and blame it on trump. The false flag operation will be broadcast as genuine by the presstitute media. They have already prepared scripts and employed dozens of new news anchors. All the powers of the Orwellian state that has come to define present day America is bearing down to ensure a clean televised Hillary Clinton victory in the presidential elections. If not, innocent lives will be lost, and the powers that be will deploy all measures necessary to hold on to power. The new ... more »

Hitler: The Rise and Fall

Phil at All That Is Solid ... - 1 day ago
Broadcast on More4 these last few weeks is *the definitive documentary* about the Nazi leader. Bear in mind those are their words, not mine. Like most pieces that try and unpick Adolf Hitler, this claims to get at the man behind the monster by building on insights dredged up by decades of scholarship. And yet, somehow, despite there being virtually nothing that hasn't been said or written about Hitler, TV documentaries always miss the mark. Rather than challenge the myth that he was a political titan in a field of mediocrities, they tend to reconfirm it. In no sense is he analysed ... more »

"Yes, There Will Be Election Fraud, And On a Grand Scale"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"Yes, There Will Be Election Fraud, And On a Grand Scale"* by John Chuckman "It is a virtual certainty that the American establishment will resort to election fraud to help Hillary Clinton. They simply do not know what to do about Donald Trump. America’s election system was not designed to handle a phenomenon like him, a non-politician, a man with some genuinely fresh anti-establishment views, who quickly rides a wave of popularity to do a hostile take-over, as it were, of a major old-line party. America’s election system is designed to give the theater of democracy with virtually... more »

Not Every Candidate Running As A Democrat Is Actually Anything You Might Define As A Democrat

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
Friday, I had dinner with former congressional candidate and Air America host Richard Greene, to talk strategy in congressional races beyond just candidates. Richard wants voters to focus on issues that are important to them and then vote for the candidate whose positions coincide with their own. Last week he wrote a guest post here about the concept. Like many progressives, Richard wants to see voters go beyond the personality shit-show between Clinton and Trump and vote rationally down-ballot. The overwhelming majority of Americans, for example, want stronger, saner gun safety ... more »

Oct. 24: Cheap journalism and the irving press.

Graeme Decarie at The Decarie Report - 1 day ago
The longest story on the front page of the irving press is that a former finance minister, now running for leadership of the Conservative party of New Brunswick, says he will do politics differently. How will he do them differently? The story really doesn't say. But for lovers of stories that say nothing, there are two more big ones on exactly the same topic in section B. The lead story - hold on to your hats, is that school registration is up 2.4% this year. Then there's a page of pictures of people at the zoo. Well, it tells us nothing. But it fills space - and it's cheap. For ... more »

The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force helicopter destroyer JS Hyuga. (National Turk) *Kyle Mizokami, National Interest*: *Japan's Master Plan to Defend Itself from China* For decades, Tokyo’s plans to defend the homeland were frozen in amber. During the Cold War it was assumed, that in the event of war the Soviet Union would invade the northern one-third of the country. A powerful tank corps to contest a Soviet landing, a strong air force to beat back city-destroying bombers and a strong destroyer force to keep open the sea-lanes would be all that was needed to hold out until the ... more »

Matt Shuman did the reporting: SHUMAN (10/24/16): “Trust me, if they went into our emails—I suppose which may happen, who knows—I’m sure there would be statements that would be less than flattering about, you know, the Clinton staff,” Sanders told the Washington Post on Monday. *“That’s what happens in campaigns.”* Duh.
