Paul Craig Roberts Warns “The Russiagate Stakes Are Extreme”

Russiagate was a conspiracy organized for the purpose of bringing down the elected president of the United States.

Many Americans do not seem to understand what is at stake. What America is confronted with is a coup conspiracy organized by top officials of the Obama Justice Department, FBI, CIA, the Hillary DNC, and the presstitute media to overturn the result of a democratic election and remove the president from office.

False wars, false ‘money,’ false corporate media… nuclear false flag Super Bowl?

 

I’ve warned of false flag attacks at the Super Bowl and on Chicago. This is an updated warning.

Your question: If US .01% oligarchs concluded they could get away with it, would they stage a False Flag Operation (and here for abundant historical examples) at the 2018 Super Bowl to further their political agenda? Perhaps it would look like this 2-minute clip from the 2002 movie, The Sum of All Fears; with plot of a non-complicit US President and non-false flag terrorism:

Considerations for your answer: History is the best tool to predict future events of specific groups’ plans. This is similar to what both Super Bowl teams do in game strategy: analysis of opponents’ history with reasonable conclusions what they’ve successfully done before, they will likely do again.

But is there a US .01% oligarchy that would orchestrate a False Flag Super Bowl attack? Isn’t that beyond reason???

AMERICAN THINKER: What Is Trump Doing with DACA?

American Thinker reports: Last Thursday afternoon, President Trump presented the outlines of his proposed “deal” on DACA. It offers full amnesty with a path to citizenship for 1.8 million DACA eligible illegal aliens. In so doing he demoralized the huge base of support that carried him into office specifically because he promised to swiftly end DACA, and simultaneously cut off at the knees ongoing efforts to push back against amnesty for illegal aliens.
On Saturday Neil Munro authored an article based on a pre-release copy of the full Trump plan obtained by Breitbart News, which has provoked an outraged uproar. It details numerous other proposals that make a mockery of Trump’s promise to secure the border. As Ted Cruz so accurately said, the president is betraying the greatest single promise he made to voters.

Two Israeli Officers Involved In Lebanon Car Bomb Attack Against Hamas Official

A recent report has exposed that two Israeli agents were involved in the car bomb explosion in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon, which slightly wounded a member of the Palestinian Islamic resistance movement, Hamas, earlier this month.

According to a report published by Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper on Monday, the pair was aided by two locals in the assassination operation against Mohammed Hamdan on January 14. They left Lebanon using Georgian, Swedish and Iraqi passports.

The report added that Lebanese security officials have now managed to identify the two Israeli officers, obtain their photographs and copies of their identity documents, the date of their entry into and exit from Lebanon, their respective roles in the operation and the nationality they used to operate under disguise.

Wedding guests are flabbergasted by a surprise officiant: Barack Obama

Only close family members knew that Dana Remus and Brett Holmgren had a pretty big surprise waiting for them at their wedding in Washington, D.C. over the weekend.

Maybe, just maybe, the Secret Service agents gave it away?

Dana Remus and Brett Holmgren sprang a surprise on their wedding guests Sunday in Washington, D.C. Only close family members knew that someone who was an “important part” of the couple’s life — and an important person, to boot — was the officiant.

It was former President Barack Obama.

“Former President Barack Obama Just Officiated a Wedding That’s Officially Cooler Than Yours,” proclaimed a headline in Brides magazine.

Flu season HOAX?? The Math does not add up.

So I have been following this flu season very closely as I keep hearing about how it is one of the worst in history, and they are desperately trying to put together a new vaccine for the masses.

then I read this…
The hospitalization rate is currently at 31.5 people per 100,000 U.S. residents.
http://time.com/5112677/flu-death-count-2018/

okay, so that would mean out of all 350 million Americans just about 110250 will end up in hospital.

Only about 10% – 15% of those cases will be fatal, so on the high end 16 – 17K will die of flu and flu related causes.

Sounds like a lot of people, however a typical flu season will claim 20 – 30K on average.

So WTF? They are saying how bad the season is on every news outlet available, WORLD WIDE. They are frantically trying to get this new vaccine together to get it out to the masses. People are scared. However, the season is actually not all that bad according to their (CDC) own numbers

So…can I interest you in a NEW AND IMPROVED SUPER FLU SHOT???

 

They do a decent job of getting all their ducks in a row, but there are still some of us out here that don’t go with their flow.

I was never going to get any flu shot, never have. However, I was watching what was being said about the this flu season and thought it could be “the ONE”, until more and more number were released and it just did not add up.

 

Flu vaccines causing flu OUTBREAKS across America

The flu vaccine is partially to BLAME for the flu outbreak that’s now reportedly killing 100 people a day across America.

    Memo to President Obama/ Hillary and their respective political appointees who still remain…

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JVAhr4hZDJE

(CNN)Hillary Clinton had no plan to make news — let alone go after the Democratic National Committee.

But then she found herself face to face with veteran tech journalists Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg at the Recode conference in California. Anxiety about social media and the spread of “fake news” was in the air. When Mossberg lamented that Democrats had fallen “way behind” Republicans on the technology front, Clinton let loose.
“I get the nomination. So I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party,” Clinton said Wednesday. “I mean, it was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong. I had to inject money into it.”
Since reemerging in public after her defeat in November, Clinton has leveled sharp criticism at a host of targets she blames for President Donald Trump’s victory, including Russia, former FBI Director James Comey and major news organizations like the New York Times.
But her stunning rebuke this week of the DNC surprised and unsettled even her allies and former aides, who are fretting in private — and some in public — that Clinton is at risk of alienating Democrats who supported her loyally.
Clinton associates say that she is unlikely to make a habit of criticizing her own party’s institutions, describing her comments at the Recode interview as a one-off event — and a unique confluence of her frustrations and a digital-savvy audience eager to hear them.
But her allies also acknowledge that Clinton’s grievances about the DNC are real and also note that she had lamented well before Election Day that the Democratic Party’s infrastructure did not serve her well.
Clinton has been mulling over the reasons that led to her unexpected defeat on November 8. As she has acknowledged in public, Clinton has mentally separated out those reasons into two categories: those that could have been corrected and others that were simply out of her control.
Russia’s meddling in the election, the Wikileaks hacks, the coverage of her private email server and even Comey’s actions fall in the latter column.
But Clinton believed during the campaign and maintains to this day that her party’s data operation was utterly inadequate, hurt her candidacy and was entirely fixable.
The DNC issue has “been on her mind since before Election Day,” a Clinton associate told CNN.
“These were all things that affected the election and that we can solve going forward,” the associate added. “This was newsy because it was talking about a specific political organization within her party, but it wasn’t out of line with the other hard truths that she’s been talking about.”

All about Comey

But overwhelmingly, Clinton is focused on Russian interference in the election along with Comey’s public statements about the investigation into her private email server as chief reasons for her defeat.
She has been increasingly explicit in alleging mischief on the part of the Russians and the Trump campaign, frequently pointing her finger directly at Trump himself. Amid an escalating federal investigation into individuals in the Trump orbit, Clinton has sharpened those allegations in public appearances, seeming to grow more confident that she will be vindicated by facts.
Clinton has said that if the election had been on October 27 — the day before Comey sent a letter to members of Congress about her use of an email server — she would have won the election. In her interview at the Recode conference Wednesday, she went as far as to say that she believes American supporters of Trump colluded with the Russians.
“She clearly feels and many of us feel that the election was stolen from her. It’s undisputed how close the margin was in the three states that made the difference,” said Terry Shumaker, a longtime Clinton friend and former U.S. ambassador to Trinidad. “Am I angry? Yes. Do I assume she is? Yes.”
One former Clinton adviser who has been in touch with her since Election Day was blunt in their assessment of Clinton’s recent venting about the circumstances surrounding her defeat.
This person was deeply bothered by Clinton’s assertion on Wednesday in which she said “I take responsibility for every decision I make — but that’s not why I lost,” and said it reflected the fact that Clinton remains “focused on her legacy.”
“I think this time around, the confluence of the Russia hacking and that they tried to sway the election Trump’s way… and the Comey thing gave her back-up to say, ‘Hey, this wasn’t my fault,'” the ex-adviser said. “She doesn’t want to be the person that lost Donald Trump. It’s one thing to lose to Barack Obama. It’s entirely a different thing to lose to Donald Trump.”

Belay that order: Intel says you should NOT install its Meltdown firmware fixes

The Warning, which encompasses just about every Intel processor out there, from all PC manufacturers, takes effect immediately. And there’s no indication when it will get fixed.

Intel says you should NOT install its Meltdown firmware fixes

 

You know how you’re supposed to flash the BIOS or update the UEFI on all of your Intel machines, to guard against Meltdown/Spectre? Well, belay that order, private! Intel just announced that you need to hold off on all of its new patches. No, you can’t uninstall them. To use the technical term, if you ran out and applied your Intel PC’s latest firmware patch, you’re hosed.

In what appears to be a catastrophic curtain call to the “oops” moment that I discussed 10 days ago, it now seems that the bright, new firmware versions — which Intel has had six months to patch — have a nasty habit of causing “higher system reboots.”

According to Executive Vice President Navin Shenoy, on the Intel Newsroom site, the current advice is:

We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors and end users stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior.

And that covers just about everybody in the sentient non-ARM universe.

While the affected products site doesn’t list individual chips, the breadth of the recall is breathtaking — second-, third-, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-generation Core processors, Xeon, Atom, and lesser Core i3, i5 and i7 processors — they’re all in the bin.

Meltdown/Spectre firmware updates from HP, Lenovo and Dell are worthless

By implication, that means the Meltdown/Spectre firmware updates you’ve installed from Lenovo or HP or Dell are officially trash. They’ll make your system unstable.

No official word from Microsoft, but it seems highly likely that the Surface firmware updates from Jan. 10 (“Surface – Firmware – 108.1926.769.0” and “233.1903.770.0,” among many others) are similarly afflicted. If you have Automatic Update turned on, you probably already have the buggy firmware, since Surface firmware patches get distributed through Windows Update.

If it makes you feel any better, yesterday Linus Torvalds launched another one of his trademarked broadsides, saying that from a Linux perspective, the Intel patches:

do literally insane things. … I really don’t want to see these garbage patches just mindlessly sent out. … I think we need something better than this garbage.

What can you do about it? Not much. Except to realize that not one single Meltdown- or Spectre-based piece of malware is in circulation.

Moral of the story: It pays to hold off on firmware patches, too.

Police tase & assault handicapped veteran, arrest him for half a gram of cannabis

handicapped

Disturbing body camera footage has just been released that shows a handicapped man being tased and manhandled by police officers for the heinous crime of flexing his rights.

Corey Bracken, 38, was trying to eat his lunch in his van outside a convenience store when officers approached him and demanded that he exit his vehicle. Bracken, aware of his rights and his need to protect himself against unlawful prosecution, began recording the incident.

Bracken rightfully asked for the officer’s supervisor to come to the scene. He told officer Chris McGauley he was not going to exit his vehicle and was just trying to eat his lunch.

Other officers arrived on the scene, but instead of protecting Bracken’s Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to unreasonable searches and seizures, they joined in on the abuse. After a bit of back and forth bantering, one officer attempted to take Bracken’s phone from his hands. Citizens have the right to film all police encounters but the officer apparently wanted to take that right away from Bracken.

Possibly realizing he was about to be jerked out of the van, the handicapped man reached for his walking cane. That action angered the officers who claimed they were fearful he was reaching for a gun. From the intensity in their voices and their screams to stop “reaching” for his cane, the officers escalated their use of force.

McGualey grabbed his arm and nearly broke it by bending it back against the van. The other officer, Less Harris, possibly realized Bracken was reaching for his cane and simply yelled for him to get out. Even though McGauley was ordering Harris to tase him, he did not. McGualey then stepped in and tased Bracken who still had not been informed as to what crime they suspected him of having committed.

The painful tasing forced the man to give up. He was then pulled out of the van and forced to lay on the ground without his cane and his apparent ability to stand. In a TFTP exclusive, Bracken explained that the officers did not charge him with any illegal activity and the prosecutors will not press charges against him.

PENCE’S CONFIRMATION … ‘WE ARE NO LONGER A PART OF THE PEACE PROCESS’

When Pence says: ‘We stand with Israel. Your cause is our cause, your fight is our fight’, it’s clear America is only interested in offering Israel blind political support and abandoning the Palestinians. Real peace must now mean circumventing the U.S. administration.

Mike Pence Just Confirmed America’s Exit From the Mideast Peace Process

By Sam Bahour

*

U.S. Vice President Pence couldn’t have said it more clearly.

“I am here to convey one simple message. America stands with Israel. We stand with Israel because your cause is our cause, your values are our values, and your fight is our fight,” he said Monday in Israel’s Knesset.

He doubled down on the Trump administration’s plan to move its embassy to Jerusalem, and repeated, mantra-like, the claim that the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was justified as “fact”. The word “Palestinian” was barely mentioned, and “Palestine” – not at all.

Pence also said the U.S. would support a two-state solution, but only if both sides support it – echoing Trump’s comments at his Jerusalem announcement. The meaning? The U.S. is abandoning the two-state solution. A sovereign Palestinian state is no longer a necessary and critical aim of U.S. foreign policy.

Donald Trump, it appears, will do nothing to stop or rebuke Israel’s accelerated settlement building, or its retroactive licensing of outposts built on private Palestinian land, having watered-down the tired-old U.S. rhetoric of “settlements are an obstacle to peace” to settlements “may not be helpful” to peace. So their construction will continue, indefinitely.

Israel’s settlement enterprise has bought, and the U.S. willingly sold, time and space to further entrench itself, thereby making the realization of a two-state solution increasingly impossible.

In light of this reality, the international community must now recognize that “the U.S. leads” approach to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is doomed to failure. There now appears no doubt that the elusive peace will not happen anytime during Trump’s presidency. It is blindingly clear – in light of two decades of failed negotiations under U.S. auspices – that  American leadership in this conflict resolution efforts is pointless and counter-productive.

If the international community’s policy is to achieve two states for two peoples, it will have to pursue an independent policy position that circumvents the Americans. The international community’s political influence in this arena has long been negligible, given the U.S. monopoly over the peace process. Now, it’s time for them to step up.

The international community has relied on the wrong leadership for too long. This tragic, historic mistake has not only cost international community taxpayers billions, but has also led to a reality that is the diametric opposite of what global policy-makers intended.

After 24 years, reliance on American “leadership” has led to the creation of numerous Palestinian Bantustans, surrounded by an occupying military power that continues to occupy with impunity, bankrolled by European taxpayers: the EU and its member states are by far the largest donors to the Palestinians.

Israel – delighted that another party is willing to subsidize its military occupation – continues to expand and consolidate its settlement enterprise, with the support of large sections of the American public and government.

Historically, the U.S. and EU have shared a common objective of resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the framework of a two-state solution. But just as Trump occupies the White House, and Republicans now control all three branches of U.S. government, there’s been a significant shift to the right in the GOP’s policy to Israel-Palestine.

By contrast, Europeans have moved towards recognition of the State of Palestine. Sweden’s recognition is now official while parliaments in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, France, Luxembourg, along with the European Parliament, have all approved recognition. Following Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, all indications are that more countries will move to recognize Palestine in order to safeguard the two-state solution.

America supports Israel’s occupation. Europe inadvertently subsidizes that occupation.

The Trump administration will do little to antagonize its own party or risk the wrath of Israel’s influential pro-settlement lobby in the U.S. Trump will continue to advocate a hands-off, “it’s up to the two parties to decide” approach. As a result, Israel, which has all the power, has little incentive to concede, while the Palestinians, who have no power, and are supposedly “protected” under international law, are left to their own despair.

America is part of the problem

Israeli intransigence and blatant violation of international law is fuelled by its belief that, no matter what its does, the U.S. will always insulate it from meaningful rebuke. Palestinian desperation is driven by a conviction that America’s overwhelming support to Israel makes negotiations pointless, as Israel has little incentive to concede when it receives so much money, weapons and blind political support.

So what can the international community do more than vote against Trump’s statement in the various chambers of the United Nations? The international community can roll up its sleeves, play power politics, and take on the occupier, without waiting for American leadership to produce results.

If the experiences of Bosnia, Kosovo, East Timor and South Africa are anything to go by, an occupier or an apartheid regime will only change its ways with a nuanced combination of sanctions, international isolation and, as a last resort, military force.

The international community must rise to the occasion and demonstrate to its constituents that Europe is squandering its money and credibility by indulging in American charades of impartiality. It is clear that America has no moral or political qualms with Israel remaining an occupying force.

Once the international community finally acknowledges this reality and moves on, it will find the strength and legitimacy to propose policies of its own, in line with its international law, the UN Charter and its own moral standards.

A POEM THAT SHOOK THE FOUNDATIONS OF ZION

Poem by Yehonatan Geffen comparing Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi to Anne Frank, Hannah Szenes and Joan of Arc infuriated Defense Minister Lieberman, who sought to then ban Geffen from all Army Radio broadcasts; AG Mandelblit said Lieberman had no legal standing to do so, an opinion Lieberman disavowed.

Yehonatan Geffen (Flash 90)

On Monday, Geffen published a short poem on his instagram account, comparing Ahed Tamimi to heroic underdogs throughout the generations, from David against Goliath to Anne Frank.

“A pretty girl 17 years old did a terrible thing

And when a proud Israeli soldier

Again invaded her home

She gave him a slap.

She was born into it and in that slap

Were fifty years of occupation and humiliation.

And on the day that the story of the struggle will be told

You, Ahed Tamimi,

The redhead,

Like David who slapped Goliath,

You will be in the same ranks as

Joan of Arc, Chana Senesh and Anne Frank.”

Ahed Tamimi Hadas Parush /Flash90

Israeli poet compares Ahed Tamimi to Anne Frank

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman this morning (Tuesday) instructed Army Radio to cease playing the works of or interviewing Israeli poet and songwriter Yehonatan Geffen, after Geffen published a poem on his Instagram account glorifying a Palestinian Authority teen who slapped Israeli soldiers.

On December 15, Ahed Tamimi, her cousin Nour Tamimi and Ahed’s mother Nariman Tamimi confronted two IDF soldiers stationed in the PA town of Nabi Salih following the outbreak of riots in the area.

In footage of the incident that went viral, the Tamimis can be seen pushing, kicking, slapping, and shouting at the soldiers, who do not respond to the provocations.

Ahed Tamimi was later arrested on December 19, and was indicted on January 1. A total of 12 charges were included in the indictment against Ahed, spanning 6 different incidents. The charges include aggravated assault, interfering with army operations, incitement, making threats, and throwing stones.

“I instructed this morning the commander of Army Radio to cease playing or interviewing Yehonatan Geffen on all station broadcasts,” Liberman said in response. “The State of Israel will not grant a platform to a man who compares a girl who died in the Holocaust and a heroic warrior who fought the Nazi regime with the brat Ahed Tamimi, who attacked a soldier. Geffen’s headline-seeking is sickening and outrageous.”

WATCH nuclear-powered icebreaker rip through ice within meters of Arctic car expedition

A Russian Arctic expedition crew in factory-stock pickup trucks has had a close encounter with the gigantic Taymyr nuclear icebreaker.

It occurred as the team was driving on the iced Yenisei River, as the nuclear-powered Taymyr sailed a few meters away from them.

Evgeny Shatalov, one of the drivers, said he managed to get close to the giant ship and touched it, posting his claim on Instagram. He also jokingly regretted that no one on the team touched the icebreaker with their tongue, as that would surely bring good luck to the whole endeavor. When the ship passed by, it was some -50 Celsius.

The team is driving factory-stock Toyota pickup trucks to the far-north town of Dixon. The daring expedition started on January 15 from the city of Norilsk.

I have been researching the Las Vegas Massacre, listening to videos, and I have compiled some new information.  First of all, I so admire these investigative journalists, who have spent their time investigating this mass shooting.  They have actually spent time and money going to Las Vegas.

First, I want to discuss Marilou Danley.

1.Marilou Danley checked Stephen Paddock’s vehicle into the hotel hours before the Las Vegas shooting.  The ticket number 275274484 shows that a woman using the name of Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, dropped off a grey Chrysler vehicle at the Mandalay Bay at 12:26 p.m. PDT on October 1st, 2017, the same day as the Las Vegas shooting.  The unidentified individual, who needed to know both Paddock’s name and his room number in order to check in his vehicle, was charged $20 to have it parked overnight.  According to a Mandalay Bay worker, if the driver was not Danley, the person who last dropped the car off in valet would also had to have known her name, along with the unusual spelling of her uncommon name. The individual also would have had to have been a female since all guests who valet their vehicles are asked to provide their first and last name.  When a guest pulls into valet, they are asked if they are staying at the hotel or just visiting. If they are staying at the hotel, they are issued a hotel ticket and ask them for their first and last name. A source at Mandalay Bay, “Paddock was a Platinum member for M Life rewards, so he used his (players) card to get free valet.”

It is clear to see the Danley seems to be protected by authorities.  Why else would they lie about her being in Las Vegas on the night of the massacre?  She told authorities Paddock was acting strangely before the shooting, and they were not intimate any longer.

However, we also know that Danley told the FBI that her fingerprints would be on ammunition located inside loaded magazines recovered from Paddock’s room.  They were indeed, and she further stated she used to help him load his guns.  In my opinion there is no way she is innocent…just my opinion.

 

2.Next, lets talk about Jesus Campos.   I have been watching videos by Jake Morphonois.  If you do not know who he is, he is an amazing investigative journalist.  He has spent time and money in Las Vegas continually digging at the truth.  He met the maintenance staff at Mandalay Bay, who informed him they had never heard of Jesus Campos before October 1, 2017.  In fact, they also were not familiar with Steve Schuck, the engineer.  They seemed to all know one another, but no one knew these two men.  We, also, have Laura Loomer saying that Campos is not on the Mandalay’s employee list.

 

3.I watched a video from another investigative reporter on YouTube.  He, too, is very good.  I hope you can find time to watch it.  As he has footage of a court hearing in which a lawyer and a judge are discussing indictments on more suspects in the shooting.  The whole video is very interesting, but if you just have time to see the court hearing, it is at 0:58.  “There are potential charges against OTHERS?” asks the Judge.  The lawyer answers, “Yes. The timetable could be 60 days.” NOTE:  The Judge says, “OTHERS.”

 

4.I would like to discuss Stephen Paddock and to some extent his brothers.  In the following video, start at 17:46 to understand the topic I want to discuss concerning Stephen Paddock and his brother, Bruce.

This video is by Blackstone Intelligence Network and was published on January 21, 2018.

Stephen Paddock and his brother Bruce Paddock have been involved with child porn.  Bruce was just arrested and jailed.  It was just revealed by the Las Vegas police that Stephen Paddock had child porn on his computer.

We now know that the Paddock Brothers own homes joining the Bohemian Grove.  It would not be a stretch to question if the brothers had participated in ritual child abuse.  With Stephen owning planes and making trips back and forth to the Philippines, I would not be at all surprised if he was not flying children from the Philippines to the United States.  His company was listed as Paradise Ranch.  There is a location in the US, and also one in the Philippines.

I believe that it is possible that Stephen Paddock was being blackmailed by the government for his pedophilia.  But not only was he being blackmailed for his crimes but also for his brother’s Bruce’s crimes.

Arrests of suspected pedophiles across 19 separate countries using information supplied by Demon Internet are increasing everyday.

The Internet service provider was approached by the National Crime Squad and agreed to allow officers to access its servers. This led to the recovery of data showing the activity of nearly 1,500 newsgroups during a two-week period.

From this data, officers established that almost 10,000 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses had accessed more than 30 of the Web sites carrying pedophilia. For operational reasons this number was whittled down to just over 400 addresses of those specifically distributing pedophiliac images.

The information was then distributed via Interpol to the countries identified with the suspects, and evidence packs on each of the targets were distributed to the relevant police forces.

Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler, leading the investigation for the National Crime Squad, said: “With the assistance of Demon Internet and the support and guidance of the National High-Tech Crime Unit, we are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.”

“We also learnt, not surprisingly, that those abusing the Internet have learnt from recent police successes how best to protect their true identities,” he added.

The National Crime Squad and Serco, its IT partner, have developed facial mapping software that they hope to use to identify the abused children featured on the pedophiliac sites.

I pray these pedophiles are caught and executed.  I wonder, though, if many are blackmailed and used by those who actually arrest them.

Paddock was running a child trafficking company – making millions of dollars in the process – according to explosive new evidence that threatens to disrupt the official narrative and prove law enforcement and mainstream media are colluding to misinform the public about the Las Vegas attack. Paddock worked for government contractor Morton-Thiokol from 1985 to 1988, a predecessor company of the Lockheed Martin.

After he retired in ’88, he continued earning millions. Gambling experts will tell you that the official narrative – that Paddock earned millions playing video poker – is an impossible fairytale. Nobody earns millions playing video poker. If a professional gambler managed beat the system and profit regularly playing video poker, they would be banned from every casino in town – not welcomed with open arms and thousands of dollars in comps.

Stephen Paddock was not a good man, and it is very possible he was even worse than we can imagine.  He and his brothers had a father who was not a good man, and it is very likely they were severely abused as children.  Unfortunately abused children grow up to abuse children, or that can be the case.  There are many good people in this world, who are abused as children, but do not grow up to be monsters.

It is very likely we may never know the truth about the Las Vegas Massacre, but as long as we have good investigative reporters, our chances of learning the truth might be better than I think.

Lady Death brought to life: Colourised images show deadly female Russian soldier – who killed 309 Nazis during WWII – alongside her fellow women snipers who terrified the Germans Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4424682/Colourised-photos-Russia-s-female-snipers-WW2.html#ixzz552G4MXGW Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

Stunning colourised portraits have emerged showing the lethal Russian female snipers of World War Two – including one dubbed Lady Death after picking off 309 Nazis.

Pictures of the fighters were brought to life by translator Olga Shirnina, from Moscow, Russia, and show women posing with their sniper rifles.

They feature portraits of Lyudmila Pavlichenko, considered the most successful female sniper in history. In one image Pavlichenko, dubbed Lady Death after taking out more than 300 Nazis, stands proudly with her weapon.

In another portrait she is pictured wearing full uniform beneath a framed picture of Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin.

Separate images show Roza Shanina, responsible for 59-confirmed kills, while one shot shows a row of Soviet women ready to fight Nazi Germany.

‘There are very few images with Red Army soldiers, I decided to fill this gap,’ said Shirnina.

‘I’m interested in the history of Russia, it is full of dramatic, cataclysmic events which impacted on the history of both the country itself and the whole world.

‘Sometimes a picture can say more than many words and I’ll be glad if people learn more about Russia and its people through my colourings, especially about our brave women.

‘It was a phenomenon and no other country had so many female soldiers, snipers, pilots, medicals.’

Lyudmila Pavlichenko joined the Red Army's 25th Rifle Division in June 1941 where she was one of around 2,000 female snipers, 500 of which survived World War Two

‘Black and white images are and remain a piece of history but the world was never monochrome even during the war,’ added Olga.

‘It is interesting to imagine how it was many years ago, how historical figures whom we know from books or articles looked.

‘Colour removes that barrier between now and then or at least makes it more transparent.’

Spectre of unpredictable chips makes Intel recommend halt of its patchy patch

Intel is recommending that people stop pushing its current firmware updates designed to address the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, and hold tight for further information later in the week.

“We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors, and end users stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior,” Intel Data Center Group general manager Navin Shenoy said in a security note.

Shenoy said Intel had released updated firmware with its partners for testing at the weekend, and asked them to test harder.

“We ask that our industry partners focus efforts on testing early versions of the updated solution so we can accelerate its release,” Shenoy wrote.

“I apologise for any disruption this change in guidance may cause.”

The company said it had found the root cause of the “reboot issue” affecting its Haswell and Broadwell chips, which came to light earlier this month.

When Intel admitted the crashes were also hitting its Kaby Lake and Skylake processors, its advice was to keep deploying the patches.

Late last week, Red Hat pulled an update to the microcode package that was designed to mitigate Meltdown and Spectre.

“Red Hat is no longer providing microcode to address Spectre, variant 2, due to instabilities introduced that are causing customer systems to not boot,” the company said.

“The latest microcode_ctl and linux-firmware packages are reverting these unstable microprocessor firmware changes to versions that were known to be stable and well tested, released prior to the Spectre/Meltdown embargo lift date on Jan 3rd. Customers are advised to contact their silicon vendor to get the latest microcode for their particular processor.”

Yesterday, Linux kernel creator Linus Torvalds let fly at proposed patches from Intel.

“They do literally insane things. They do things that do not make sense,” he said. “And I really don’t want to see these garbage patches just mindlessly sent around.”

Torvalds said earlier this month that Intel should admit it has problems with its CPUs, instead of writing fluff stating its processors were working as designed.

Meltdown and Spectre were discovered by Project Zero researcher Jann Horn, who reported the flaws to Intel, AMD, and ARM on June 1, 2017.

Earlier this month, Microsoft had to reissue patches after its original update prevented some AMD systems from booting.

Your iPhone X/8 battery could wear out in about 18 months

If you’ve recently bought a new iPhone, then you might be looking on at the whole iPhone throttling debacle that Apple has found itself embroiled in and think that you’ve dodged a bullet. But the battery inside your new iPhone might be worn out in under a couple of years.

OK, first, a little about the battery inside the iPhone. According to Apple, the battery “is designed to retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles,” and beyond that, the battery is considered worn and heading toward end-of-life. Some batteries can and do retain more than 80 percent charge after well over 500 recharge cycles (I have an iPhone 6 Plus with over 800 recharge cycles that’s still above the 80 percent mark), but in my experience, once you hit 500 recharge cycles, your battery is on borrowed time.

So ideally, you need to ration out those 500 recharges over the life of the device. However, you additionally need to bear in mind that as the battery gets older, it won’t last as long, so your recharge frequency is going to increase as your device gets older.

Now, in my opinion, two of the best features of the iPhone X and iPhone 8 are fast charging and wireless charging. They’ve essentially eliminated the low-grade anxiety that I’d feel when my battery was getting below 50 percent during the day. Pop the iPhone on a wireless pad or hook it up to a fast charger and it’s always ready for action.

But the ability to easily recharge the iPhone masks a nagging feeling I’ve had about Apple’s latest crop of iPhones — that the battery life is far from good. And I’m saying that as an iPhone 8 Plus user, which is listed as having the best battery life (at least with regard to internet use, which is what I use it for the most) of the newest iPhones.

So the other day, on a whim, I decided to check out how many recharge cycles my iPhone had been through in the less than four months I’ve had it and I was horrified to discover that I was already at 82, and that this had increased to 91 by the point I’d owned it four months (I got my iPhone 8 Plus on launch day).

​My iPhone 8 Plus after less than four months usage

Note: I used the excellent macOS app CoconutBattery to get access to the iPhone’s battery recharge cycle count.

If I’ve gone through 91 recharge cycles in four months, that means that I could easily hit the 455 recharge cycles after about 20 months of ownership, and since that’s not allowing for any battery wear, I’m realistically expecting that the battery inside my iPhone to hit the 500 cycles mark in about 18 months.

18 months.

Previously I would have expected an iPhone to make it closer to the 36-month/three-year mark before hitting the 500 recharge cycle (working out as a full recharge every couple of days or so).

That’s scary, doubly so when I consider that this iPhone hasn’t been heavily used in the four months that I’ve had it (I’ve been switching between older devices a lot as part of the testing I do).

And it’s not just me. I’ve heard from other iPhone X and iPhone 8 owners who tell me that their battery recharge cycles are in a similar ballpark.

So what’s going on here?

It seems that Apple adding the speed and convenience of wireless and fast charging is masking the fact that newer iPhones are placing quite a heavy demand on battery life, and that the device — even the larger Plus devices — are needing to be topped up more regularly than older devices, and that this will wear out the battery even faster than we’ve seen previously.

If you upgrade every year, this isn’t going to be a problem for you, but if you’re the kind of person who likes to get a few years out of their iPhone before getting a new one, this is something that you need to think about. You either need to take measures to minimize battery usage during the day, or plan for a battery replacement down the line.
