7914 Gleaning ISIS Seized 88 Pounds Of Nuclear WMD Uranium United States Government And Military Are Not Intelligent At All They Are 666 Stupid And 911 Ate Up
With the mainstream media having moved on in the news cycle to Dow ‘almost’ 17,000 and the ‘Border Crisis’ Scandal, it seems The Islamic State (the terrorists formerly known as ISIS) have stepped up their game and come out swinging… by seizing 88 pounds of nuclear material (uranium compounds) from Mosul University. As Iraq’s UN Ambassador warned, “these nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, “can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction… or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts.”
As Reuters reports, insurgents in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country’s north, Iraq told the United Nations in a letter appealing for help to “stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad.”
Another great addition to ISIS Annual Report and another potentially terrifying prospect for the rest of the world… all this as rockets from Gaza fall around Israel’s Dimona nuclear facility also… Should be good for guaranteeing Dow 17,000 tomorrow…
Sheikh Naim Qassem, a top Hezbullah official, says the US is sponsoring the radical group of Islamic State of Iraq and Levant which is dividing the region and push it into chaos.
“ISIL is an American trademark adopted and sponsored by America … and its first mission is to divide the region and draw it in sectarian war and chaos,” Qassem said after meeting with former Lebanese MP Mustafa Hussein.
In an unusually harsh major foreign policy address, Philip Gordon, a special assistant to US President Barack Obama and the White House coordinator for the Middle East, appealed to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to make the compromises needed to reach a permanent peace agreement. Jerusalem “should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate” such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has proven to be a reliable partner, Gordon said.
In his 25-minute speech – which marked the first time a senior White House official had directly addressed the Israeli people since Obama’s March 2013 speech in Jerusalem — Gordon rejected any alternatives to the two-state solution. He called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resume peace talks with the PA, suggesting that Abbas is the best Palestinian leader Jerusalem could hope for. “Israel should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate such a peace with Abbas, who has shown time and again that he’s committed to non-violence and co-existence and cooperation with Israel.”
On June 29, Netanyahu declared that one of Israel’s central security challenges was to “stabilize the area west of the Jordan River security line.” In this part of the West Bank, the prime minister said, “no force can guarantee Israel’s security other than the IDF and our security services… Who knows what the future holds? The ISIS wave could very quickly be directed against Jordan,” he said at a conference in Tel Aviv.
Israel would thus have to maintain long-term security control of the territory along the Jordan River in any future accord with the Palestinians, the prime minister said. “The evacuation of Israel’s forces would most likely lead to the collapse the PA and the rise of radical Islamic forces, just as it did in Gaza. It would also severely endanger the State of Israel.”
Technology is moving faster than news. In The Terminator Series, I write about different aspects of our digital and virtual world, and often times how it may impact our lives in a very hidden yet long lasting manner.
Today, I want to tell you about the idea of “Singularity”. Once the stuff of science fiction, it now is the mainstay of science
But Singularity, in its infant stages, is now leaping ahead.
Did you ever consider how Google glasses – with the instantly readable video, photo, call and text commands available as you wear them – is the first step towards what seems to be an inevitable evolutionary leap for all mankind?
Now, labs can grow retinas from stem cells. Turns out, as you may expect, this turn of events is tricky. In 1993, mathematician and science fiction writer Vernor Vinge wrote in his study, “In thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended. Is such progress avoidable? If not to be avoided, can events be guided so that we may survive? These questions are investigated. Some possible answers (and some further dangers) are presented.”
With this change, make no mistake: we are witnessing the dawn of a great evolutionary change as major as the very birth of mankind. Whether or not we survive – in a version we all can continue to call “human” – is another matter..
Floyd Romesberg, a chemist at Scripps who led the study, told the New York Times that adding letters to the genetic code will allow researchers to “write more words and tell more stories.” But creating “new words” — new life forms and never before seen proteins — is bound to ruffle a few feathers.
Obama is the most evil president in American. The fact that he was re-elected says much about the kind of nation America has become. But, I had hoped that there was a silver lining to this awful presidency – a reduction in the threat of nuclear war.
the Bible’s account of an attack on Israel (Gog and Magog), is more than enough proof that something dreadful has happened to America. The US MUST defend the petrodollar system, or her empire ceases to exist. The fact that she can’t means that imperial America HAS fallen.Add to this Revelation’s description of a deadly wound happening to such an empire as America’s… well, suspicion becomes certainty. But, certainty can still leave room for doubt. So, let’s remove all doubt by digging up the decisions America has been making that will lead to her to this ‘deadly wound’..
Now, we are hearing that US military strategists are lobbying for a nuclear strike on Russia. And, if WE are hearing about this, you can only guess at what Russia is hearing. Have we gone beyond the lobbying stage and directly into planning a nuclear attack on Russia? My suspicion is that they have, and there is some evidence to back up these thoughts. In addition to whatever hard evidence that we may have, please remember that Russia is an active threat to the petrodollar system. And, the United States will do ANYTHING to keep that system alive – including the murder of tens of millions of Russians in a nuclear first strike.Furthermore, Russia knows that it cannot hope to survive a nuclear first strike. And, that leaves only one option:
Now, many of you will want to claim that Russia could never pull this off, that it would be an impossible task. And, most in the US government would agree with you.
But, are you sure?.
Their persistent petulance and constantly changing excuses in the face of mounting, damning evidence belies their true intentions. They we caught red-handed weaponizing the IRS against their political opponents. They have franticly searched for a scapegoat (rogue low-level employees in Cincinnati, mismanagement, computer crashes, underfunding, Congress, etc.), but the truth has always stood in the way of their misdirection.
Tosh Plumlee, former CIA Agent, reveals startling information about our nation, and our government! This is jaw-dropping information that we are definitely not supposed to know about! He discusses covert operations, including what’s really going on at the ‘border’ and why we are being distracted! He also reveals information about drug cartels and government involvement, (coming martial law, next week, in part two), and the fact that Muslim terrorists are walking straight into our country, and a lot of them!
Some of these things have been going on since the 1950’s, but it’s only gotten worse, and the deception has grown much thicker. Folks, this is a must-hear! I urge you to listen to every bit of the below video and share this post! I promise that you will be completely blown away!
“These bones have been buried, but now they are starting to come out! There’s old operatives that are starting to talk about some of the operations that they were involved with that coincide and prove what I am telling you today!” —Tosh Plumlee
Next week, Tosh will reveal even more shocking information that you’ll want to know about! I will be sure and make a post at that time so you can be informed..
Thousands of people in U.S. East Coast states woke up to power cuts and a major clean-up operation on Wednesday after severe storms and high winds killed five people.
One of the hardest hit spots was the Syracuse-area community of Smithfield, New York, where four of the deaths were reported and at least four homes destroyed on Tuesday, Madison County Undersheriff John Ball said in a statement.
In Maryland, one boy was killed and eight others, aged 15 and under, were injured when they tried to shelter from tree branches and other debris being whipped around by the wind.
Institutionalizing the speculative excesses that inflated the previous housing bubble has fed magical thinking and fostered illusions of phantom wealth and security. The damage that will be unleashed by the echo-bubble deflating will be substantial, and in line with the The Smith Uncertainty Principle, not as predictable as many imagine:
SOLAR FLARE ERUPTS FROM UNEXPECTED SOURCE: Yesterday, July 8th, Earth-orbiting satellites detected a strong M6-class solar flare. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash:
The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the IDF intensified its strikes against Hamas targets – including the homes of some of its top commanders – it became clear to the movement’s leaders that Israel means business.
On Tuesday night, Hamas spokesmen were sending distress signals to various parties. The organization is concerned that if the IDF operation continues for another few days, the movement will pay a very heavy price – one that could even bring about an end to Hamas’s rule over the Gaza Strip.
The IDF struck 160 terror targets across Gaza overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday, and 440 targets since the beginning of the operation this week against Hamas in Gaza to stop rocket fire on
Targets hit by the air force include 10 tunnels and five Hamas government buildings, including the ministry of interior, the national security ministry, and a naval police position.
The air force also hit 118 underground rocket launchers, including infrastructure designed for mid-range and long-range rocket fire against Israel. The attacks caused significant damage to the rocket firing capabilities of terrorist organizations, the IDF said.
Israel Navy ships attacked targets belonging to Hamas’s naval force.
The rocket fire from Gaza continued on Wednesday with some 40 rockets launched at Israel by midday, eight of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome.
Rami Abdel Rahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was likely that pro-regime forces were preparing to lay siege to rebel-held parts of Aleppo, the country’s pre-war commercial capital.
At the same time, “rebel and (allied) Islamist brigades sent reinforcements of their own… through the eastern entrance to Aleppo city,” added the Britain-based organisation.
Aleppo was Syria’s most populous city before the conflict, but it is now a major battle zone split into areas controlled by the rebels concentrated in the east and those held by the government mainly in the west.
The Observatory says the offensive has killed some 2,000 civilians, including more than 500 children, since January.
It has also forced tens of thousands of families to flee.
The Islamic State extremist group has taken control of a vast former chemical weapons facility northwest of Baghdad, where remnants of 2,500 degraded chemical rockets filled decades ago with the deadly nerve agent sarin are stored along with other chemical warfare agents, Iraq said in a letter circulated Tuesday at the United Nations.
The U.S. government played down the threat from the takeover, saying there are no intact chemical weapons and it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to use the material for military purposes.
Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a letter that “armed terrorist groups” entered the Muthanna site on June 11, detained officers and soldiers from the protection force guarding the facilities and seized their weapons. The following morning, the project manager spotted the looting of some equipment via the camera surveillance system before the “terrorists” disabled it, he said.
It said the sarin munitions were “of poor quality” and “would largely be degraded after years of storage under the conditions existing there.” It said the tabun-filled containers were all treated with decontamination solution and likely no longer contain any agent, but “the residue of this decontamination would contain cyanides, which would still be a hazard.”
A Pakistani terror group has become the first in the region to break ranks and declare allegiance to the Islamic State that has seized power across Iraq and Syria.
It represents a breakthrough for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as he tries to win support for his caliphate, potentially extending his influence into South Asia and bolstering his challenge to al-Qaeda for leadership of the global jihadist movement.
Want to hear the worst idea in the history of horrible ideas? How about we take the industry responsible for destroying the U.S. economy and wrecking the lives of tens of millions of people, and then allow it to create a “government-industry cyber war council.”
It appears that trillions in taxpayer bailouts simply wasn’t enough for Wall Street. Noting that it can seemingly get whatever it wants whenever it wants, the industry is now positioning itself to overtly control U.S. “cyber” policy. What could go wrong?
The man behind the push appears to be ex-NSA chief Keith Alexander, who as I reported on last month, is now: Pimping Advice to Wall Street Banks for $1 Million a Month. As I mentioned in that post, one of Mr. Alexander’s most high profile clients is Wall Street’s largest lobbying group the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA). Unsurprisingly, SIFMA is behind the latest push to formally merge Wall Street with the government intelligence apparatus. Mr. Alexander isn’t wasting any time.
Thus in June U.S. contractors employed by Bell Helicopter, Beechcraft and General Dynamics Land Systems have all pulled their support personnel out of Iraq, depriving Iraqis of maintenance and repair for their U.S.-manufactured Bell ARH-407 armed reconnaissance helicopters, Beechcraft T-6 military trainer aircraft and M-1 tanks. Given the deteriorating security situation, a knowledgeable source says that virtually all U.S. contractor personnel have left Iraq.
“When the crisis worsened U.S. corporate leadership made a decision to pull all their guys out of Iraq, and the U.S. government took a hands-off approach that left those decisions up to each company,” said the U.S. source in Baghdad. “We’re discovering that U.S. companies in this crisis don’t have a high tolerance for risk. Unfortunately, the Russians are much more tolerant of risk.”
Brussels, we have a problem. As we warned 6 weeks ago, Espirito Santo International SA – is in a “serious financial condition” according to a central bank driven external audit by KPMG identified “irregularities in its accounts.” Sure enough, the ‘ponzi-like’ maneuvers have left the bank unable to pay its bonds as Bloomberg reports bonds plunged to record lows after a parent company delayed payments on short-term notes. More importantly, given the divisively dependent nature of the domestic sovereign bond market (and hence the health of the EU) and its banking system, it is noteworthy that Portuguese bond risk has surged to 4 month highs with the biggest 2-day spike in a year. As one analyst noted, “The bigger question is whether the government will have to get involved,” leaving the EU taxpayer on the hook once again (for fear of M.A.D. threats) as most critically, it “will have to step in to prevent systemic repercussions?”
“The stability pact will not become a flexibility pact, but we will use the flexibility within the pact. And a Socialist will be in charge of this dossier,” Juncker said, in reference to the influential economics commissioner. Until now the post was held by Finland’s Olli Rehn, a fiscal hawk..
One year earlier than required, the German government approved plans to force creditors into propping up struggling banks across Europe. As WSJ reports, Germany “leads the way” in Europe by implementing European rules quickly and “creates instruments that allow the winding-down of big systemically relevant institutions without putting the financial stability at risk.” What this means is that taxpayers (theoretically) will not be on the hook (though in reality we are sure the mutually assured destruction defense will be played – especially if Deutsche runs into problems) but as German authorities explain, “This ensures that in times of crisis mainly owners and creditors will contribute to solving the crisis, and not taxpayers.” As a gentle reminder – creditors includes depositors… remember Cyprus?
As WSJ reports, Germany’s cabinet Wednesday approved plans to force creditors into propping up struggling banks beginning in 2015, one year earlier than required under European-wide plans that set rules for failing financial institutions.
Not everyone’s buying the no-taxpayer-impact concept…
In an expertise report presented Wednesday, Germany’s independent Monopoly Commission, which advises the government on competition and regulation issues, said its “skeptical whether market participants can muster sufficient capital buffer to effectively prevent the general public from being held liable.”
As usual the initial knee-jerk reaction (in this case lower in stock prices and higher in bond yields) has been faded rapidly and despite Fed warnings over investor complacency (and real economic uncertainty not being priced in), investors are buying bonds and stocks with both hands and feet (for now)… Gold is spiking higher as the USD drops.
Gold is spiking
