Why ISIS Intelligence Was Doctored to Hide the Truth

Rank-and-file analysts at the U. S. Central Command say senior officials have been changing the conclusions of ISIS intelligence reports to make it appear the U. S.-led campaign is doing better than it really is.
Rank-and-file analysts at the U. S. Central Command say senior officials have been changing the conclusions of ISIS intelligence reports to make it appear the U. S.-led campaign is doing better than it really is.
The charges received little attention two weeks ago when the Pentagon’s Inspector General launched an investigation into allegations from two analysts.
But late Wednesday, a report in The Daily Beast revealed that more than 50 intelligence analysts at CENTCOM had formally complained that their intelligence reports on the Islamic State had been inappropriately altered by senior officials.
‘One of the central tenets, one of the key aspects of the policymaking process in the United States, is that analysts get to say what they think without any interference, without anybody changing it, so this is a very, very serious charge,’ CBS News Senior National Security Contributor Michael Morell, a former deputy director of the CIA, said on ‘CBS This Morning’ yesterday. If the report is true, he said, ‘somebody needs to lose their job over this.’

U.S. Afraid to Call China on Undeportable Illegals: ‘They Do Not Want These People Back’

Illegal immigrants, shady individuals, violent criminals, and diplomatic strain.
The issue plagues America, but this part of the problem is not with Mexico or Latin American nations, but rather China.
It is just one more element that is stoking tensions between China and the United States, with detailed reports about the Asian superpower giving bureaucratic excuses for refusing the return of thousands of individuals that I. C. E. and Homeland Security have marked for deportation, but can’t due to unfulfilled paperwork.
It appears that China, well, simply doesn’t want them back. As Reuters reports:
In cities across America, U. S. immigration agents arrested more than two dozen Chinese nationals with unfulfilled deportation orders, telling them that after years of delay, China was finally taking steps to provide the paperwork needed to expel them from the U. S.
But, not for the first time, China failed to provide the necessary documents, and three months later not one of those arrested has been deported, and many have been released from custody. They form part of abacklog of nearly 39,000 people Chinese nationals awaiting deportation for violating U. S. immigration laws, 900 of them classed as violent offenders, according to immigration officials.
The issue, which is likely to come up during a state visit to Washington later this month by Chinese President Xi Jinping, has further strained a U. S.-China relationship already frayed by tensions over economic policy, suspected Chinese cyber hacking and Beijing’s growing military assertiveness.

Today Is the Last Day of Trading on Wall Street Before Shemitah Ends… What Will Happen This Time?

This isn’t meant to be another one of those scary September 2015 stories, but we can’t just completely ignore history either.
Today isn’t just the 14th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. It also happens to be the last day of trading on Wall Street before this Shemitah cycle – a seven-year period on the Jewish calendar – ends on Sunday.
Why should that matter, you might ask?
Look at how the end of each Shemitah cycle has played out in the past (via The Times of India):

Politician’s Logic: Slow The Flow Of Refugees Fleeing War By Dropping More Bombs

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Wednesday became the latest elected leader to use the plight of refugees in building a rhetorical case for military escalation towards Syria, despite numerous calls for wealthy nations to extend refuge – not bombs – as the humanitarian crisis worsens.
Speaking in the Australian capital of Canberra on Wednesday, Abbott coupled an announcement that the country will admit an additional 12,000 people fleeing conflict in the Middle East with the declaration that the nation will extend its military actions beyond Iraq by joining in the bombing campaign in eastern Syria this week. The move comes despite questions over the Abbott administration’s legal footing for the air strikes.
Meanwhile, British Prime Minister David Cameron is also calling for a ‘hard military force’ to remove President Bashar al Assad in Syria. ‘Assad has to go, [ISIS] has to go and some of that will require not just spending money, not just aid, not just diplomacy, but it will on occasion require hard military force,’ he declared Wednesday.
Cameron’s comment comes despite the fact that he lost a parliamentary vote in August 2013 for approval to launch air strikes at the Assad regime. Moreover, the statement follows rising concerns over the country’s recent drone assassination of its own citizens, secret participation of its pilots in air strikes within Syria, and bombing of targets within Iraq.

Per Bylund: Refugees, Property Rights, and Open Borders

The following video was published by misesmedia on Sep 11, 2015
Our guest this weekend is Professor Per Bylund, whose article on immigration (elicited plenty of discussion on mises.org and social media earlier this week. Dr. Bylund argues that property rights, not government immigration policies, should serve as the natural regulator of immigration and human movement. Since the state is never legitimate, “open borders” is conceptually irrelevant. Our focus as libertarians should be on property, freedom of association, and the equally important freedom of dissociation. Migrants do not enjoy unbridled freedom of movement when such movement becomes a matter of trespass.
We discuss several arguments made by Hans-Hermann Hoppe regarding externalities caused by forced integration and “public lands.” As usual, the problem lies with states themselves: disruptive wars and bad economic policies cause tremendous human dislocations, while welfare state incentives encourage immigration for the wrong reasons.

Daddy’s Boy: Jeb Bush Campaign Shirt Declares His Dad Is the ‘Greatest,’ Will Fight You over It

This cycle’s presidential (s)election is the most ridiculous yet, and the inane level to which 2016 candidate schwag has sunk to proves it. Between Ted Cruz’s tattooed bad boy poster or his coloring book (crayons not included), Hillary Clinton’s ‘Grillary Clinton’ spatula (now on sale!) and pantsuit tee, and Rand’s $500 autographed eye chart or ‘head-on-a-stick,’ (hey, at least he changed the poorly named ‘Rand Paul Flip Flops’to ‘sandals’)…
I’m just not sure what crap I should buy to cheer on a complete dog-and-pony game show where the rules are all made up and the points don’t really matter!
(Although Rand selling ‘Hillary’s Hard Drive with Wiping Cloth’ is actually pretty clever… only $59.95, but ‘Buyer beware, this product has had heavy use and it currently is no longer working’).

THIS WILL SHOCK YOU TO YOUR CORE: 9/11 From Cheney to Mossad

The following video was published by SGTreport.com on Sep 11, 2015
On Thursday, September 9, 2015 I interviewed author Rebekah Roth about her new book ‘Methodical Deception’. New information she has recovered about the 9/11 false flag event will shock you to your core. This bombshell evidence destroys the “official story”, forever. Israeli Mossad involvement in the 9/11 false flag attacks can no longer be denied.

Shock Report: U.S. Military Misplaced Samples of Black Plague and Other Deadly Pathogens

What could possibly go wrong when you mix deadly pathogens with inept government bureaucracy?
Well don’t look now, but the DoD is out warning that the army might have also mishandled samples of the black plague which isn’t known to be dangerous unless you count the time it wiped out 60% of Europe’s entire population. Here’s more from CNN:
The U. S. Department of Defense is looking into possible mishandling of bubonic plague and equine encephalitis samples at its laboratories, a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday. The new inquiry is part of an investigation into the mishandling of anthrax at Department of Defense labs, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said.
The department hasn’t determined whether samples containing plague bacteria and specimens of the deadly virus were shipped from its labs, Cook said.
The latest investigation started after CDC inspectors found a sample of the plague in a freezer outside of a containment area on August 17 at the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center in Maryland, Cook said.
Investigators are working to determine whether the sample posed an ‘infectious threat,’ Cook said. Army tests found it was not infectious.
‘That’s the scientific work that’s being done at this particular time, determining exactly what happened there, and whether or not … there was mislabeling,’ he said.

It Begins: Europe Flooded With Reports Of “ISIS Terrorists” Posing As Refugees

While the US is looking back at the 14 year anniversary of what is widely accepted as the biggest terrorist event in modern US history, in Europe it is time to look forward to what may be the advent of domestic “terrorism” in the coming months, whether real or false flagged.
Earlier this week, one of our contributors Erico Tavares pointed out something disturbing, namely that in Europe’s perpetual search for “crises” on which to capitalize in its relentless encroachment to a European superstate, the current migrant crisis may be a blessing in disguise (assuming, of course, it wasn’t premeditated from day one as others have suggested).
Why blessing? Because just like the US Patriot Act which allowed a massive expansion of the US government apparatus while obliterating civil and privacy rights (highlighted earlier today), confirmed a decade later by Edward Snowden, was a regulation in search of a terrorist event, so Europe’s next superstate expansion will require a comparable anti-terrorism “rush” in which the population voluntarily hands Europe’s supra-government even more rights to centrally-plan as it sees fit.
Which means that as part of the refugee crisis in which tens of thousands of innocent Syrians have been displaced and seeking European asylum, it was only a matter of time before one or more was “found” to be ISIS terrorists in order to perpetuate the fear and crisis narrative. A crisis which Brussels would never go to waste.
That time has arrived following a report by German RTL and carried by NewObserver that “an ISIS terrorist posing as an “asylum seeker” has been arrested by German police in a ‘refugee’ center in Stuttgart, and German customs officers have seized boxes containing Syrian passports being smuggled into Europe.”
So it begins.

Crude Jumps After Biggest 2-Week Rig Count Decline In 4 Months

With Saudis blowing off an OPEC leaders meeting, Iran slashing prices to 3 year lows inventories rising rapidly but US production dropping quickly, and Goldman calling for $20 oil possible, it has been a busy (and mixed) week for oil news. Add to that the seasonal lull amid refinery slowdown/repairs and Today’s 10 rig drop in US oil rig count to 652 (following last week’s 12 rig drop) is the biggest 2-week drop in 4 months just adds to the noise with Texas rig count dropping most (-9 to 366). Crude prices are rising modestly as US rig count drops back to 2-months lows.

More American Cronyism – U.S. Government Selling Visas to Fund Luxury Apartment Buildings

Merging, on paper, the affluent midtown neighborhood and the struggling one uptown placed Hudson Yards in a community with an overall high unemployment rate, positioning developer Related Cos. to gain low-cost financing from foreigners seeking green cards.
The program through which that happens, known as EB-5, enables foreign nationals to obtain U. S. permanent-resident status by putting up money for new business ventures that create American jobs. It gives ventures in high-unemployment and rural areas a special status to encourage investment. But as the program’s popularity has soared in recent years, the bulk of immigrant investment is going to projects that are located, like $20 billion Hudson Yards, in prosperous urban neighborhoods.
At least 80% of EB-5 money is going to projects that wouldn’t qualify as being in Targeted Employment Areas without ‘some form of gerrymandering,’ estimates Michael Gibson, managing director of USAdvisors.org, which evaluates projects for foreign investors.
Increasingly, the money appears to be flowing to the flashiest projects, which the investors often see as safest, EB-5 professionals say. Among those getting EB-5 money are an office building set to host Facebook Inc. near Amazon.com Inc.’s Seattle headquarters, a boutique hotel in high-end Miami Beach, and a slim Four Seasons condo-hotel in lower Manhattan that sports a penthouse with an asking price above $60 million. In all of them, geographic districts were crafted to include higher-unemployment areas.

9/11: A Time To Remember

Once a year it comes around again; this time marking 14 years.
I have said much on this event, and the idiocy surrounding it in our government, over the years — from censored reports to the utter and complete refusal to deal with the animals that committed this act in the only way that a murderous group of thugs understands.
Through the intervening years we have failed to secure our borders, failed to secure our military technology (in fact we have given it to dangerous people on more than one occasion, and it has blown up in our face too), failed to secure our information infrastructure including blatant and outrageous violations by people at the highest levels in our government, kissed the signet ring of a government that at best appears to have been complicit (and at worst funded the attacks) and more — with much of the “more” being outrageous violations of our Constitution when it comes to the rights of our citizens even though exactly none of those violations have caught one terrorist.
Take the few minutes this morning out of your day to remember and reflect. Maybe — just maybe — we’ll finally start insisting that our government stop the stupid.
I’m doing my part today in this regard — are you doing yours?

Perfect Timing: Florida Man Arrested for 9/11 Memorial Bomb Plot

The propaganda mill was treated to a conveniently timed revelation late Thursday night, when our government announced that they had foiled a terrorist attack on the eve of the anniversary for 9/11. Joshua Ryne Goldberg of Orange Park, Florida was arrested for plotting an attack on an upcoming 9/11 memorial ceremony in Kansas City, Missouri.
As is usually the case, Goldberg was caught by an FBI informant. He first garnered the attention of the FBI back in May after he took credit for inspiring the attack on the Muhammed Art Exhibit in Garland Texas. Apparently, several days before the shooting he had called for an attack on the event on Twitter, and posted a map of the building. The FBI told their informant to contact him, and they had been communicating with each other since July. Goldberg allegedly gave him directions to build a pressure cooker bomb, and told him to attack the 9/11 ceremony.
In a conversation Aug. 17, Goldberg told the informant, ‘Hopefully there will be some jihad on the anniversary of 9/11.’ Days later, when the source volunteered to take part in an attack, Goldberg allegedly provided him with detailed plans to manufacture explosives, specifically pipe bombs and a pressure cooker bomb.
The instructions, the FBI reports, were ‘accurate.’

“They’re Making Idiots Of Us!”: Eastern Europe Furious At West For Doing Gas Deals With Russian Devils

Back in June, when Greece was still predisposed to waving around an MOU for participation in the Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline in a desperate attempt to play the Russian pivot card and force Brussels to blink, we remarked that the Turkish Stream MOU with Greece wasn’t the only preliminary energy deal Gazprom inked at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.
The company also signed a memorandum of intent with Shell, E. On and OMV to double the capacity of the Nord Stream pipeline – the shortest route from Russian gas fields to Europe – to 110bcm/year.
That, we said, proves Russia is making progress in efforts to facilitate the unimpeded flow of gas to Europe even as the crisis in Ukraine escalates.
Nearly three months later and Ukraine isn’t happy. Neither is Slovakia.

Hey Boss, The Robots Are Coming For Your Job Too

When most people think of automation, they tend to imagine low wage menial jobs being taken over by machines and computers. That may have been true in the past, but nowadays the robots are also gunning for your boss’s job. In fact, for some industries it’s the low wage tasks that still require human hands while mid-level positions are much more economical to automate.
At Hitachi, the Japanese electronics manufacturer, workers have started to take orders from artificial intelligence programs meant to increase productivity in the workplace.
Hitachi has deployed the AI in an unspecified number of warehouses, where it issues work orders and instructions to employees. The computer analyzes employees’ previous approaches to problems, and if an employee uses a new way to accomplish a job more efficiently, that technique is analyzed and used later on. This idea of kaizen, or constant improvement, is an often-repeated theme in Hitachi’s announcement of the AI system.
Rather than relying on preprogrammed instructions like other warehouse software, Hitachi claims that this AI can go off-script, adapting to on-site changes, weather patterns, and shifts in demand.
