PostSubject: Saudi Arabia Orders Its Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately   Thu Nov 09, 2017 12:34 pm

Saudi Arabia Orders Its Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately
by Tyler Durden
Nov 9, 2017 9:33 AM
In a odd coincidence, just moments after we published an article laying out Hezbollah's military power at a time when both Saudi Arabia and Lebanon appear to be targeting Lebanon, and just two days after we discussed a leaked Israeli cable that confirmed Saudi Arabia and Israel are deliberately coordinating to destabilize the region and push Lebanon to a state of war, Saudi Arabia has ordered its citizens residing in Lebanon to leave immediately in a travel warning issued on Thursday, November 9. As Al Arabiya adds, the travel warning also called for Saudi nationals not to travel to Lebanon from any point of origin.

Full advisory below

Quote :


Official Source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.
 
Riyadh, Safar 20, 1439, November 09, 2017, SPA -- Due to the situations in the Republic of Lebanon, the official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.
 
The Kingdom advised all citizens not to travel to Lebanon from any other international destinations.
This follows a similar warning issued by the Kingdom of Bahrain on November 5 urghing its nationals residing in Lebanon to leave immediately and to "exercise caution.” The Bahraini call came a day after Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation, while on location in Saudi Arabia, citing concerns he could be assassinated like his father, criticized the Lebanon-based Hezbollah paramilitary and political movement and accused Iran of alleged attempts to bring destruction to the region. The Bahraini foreign ministry said in a statement received by AFP that its call was "in the interest of its citizens’ safety and to avoid any risks they may be exposed due to the conditions and developments” that Lebanon is going through.
Earlier, Reuters reported that Lebanon believes former premier Saad al-Hariri, who as noted above resigned on Saturday while in Saudi Arabia, is being held by Riyadh, and Beirut plans to work with foreign states to secure his return, a top Lebanese government official said on Thursday. A second Reuters source, a senior politician close to Saudi-allied Hariri, said Saudi Arabia had ordered him to resign and put him under house arrest. A third source familiar with the situation said Saudi Arabia was controlling and limiting his movement.
Saudi Arabia and members of Hariri’s Future Movement have denied reports that he is under house arrest. But he has put out no statements himself denying his movements are being restricted. He made a one-day flying visit to the United Arab Emirates earlier this week before returning to Saudi Arabia.
Earlier on Thursday, Saudi Arabia's foreign minister also urged the international community to slap fresh sanctions against Iran, accusing its regional rival of supporting terrorism.
"We would like to see sanctions on Iran for its support of terrorism and sanctions on Iran for violating the ballistic missile resolutions of the United Nations," Adel Al-Jubeir, Saudi minister of foreign affairs, told CNBC Thursday.
Al-Jubeir also said that the landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers was "weak," especially given Tehran would be capable of assembling a bomb "within weeks." He added he would like to see international agencies carry out a "much more robust" job when conducting inspections in Iran.
Al-Jubeir also described the situation in Lebanon as "unfortunate" and went on to accuse Hezbollah of "hijacking the system" and putting "roadblocks" in front of Hariri at every opportunity. When asked whether Saudi Arabia was headed for a direct conflict with Iran, Al-Jubeir replied, "We hope not", and yet just hours later Riyadh made it clear that any Saudi citizens in Lebanon are now in danger.
Needless to say, traditionally such accelerate evacuation orders have preceded military intervention. Should that be the case again, keep a close eye on oil.

Facebook Founder Warns "God Only Knows What It's Doing To Kids' Brains"




http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-09/facebook-founder-warns-god-only-knows-what-its-doing-kids-brains

38-year-old founding president of Facebook, Sean Parker, was uncharacteristically frank about his creation in an interview with Axios. So much so in fact that he concluded, Mark Zuckerberg will probably block his account after reading this.

Confirming every 'big brother' conspiracy there is about the social media giant, Parker explained how social networks purposely hook users and potentially hurt our brains...
Quote :


"When Facebook was getting going, I had these people who would come up to me and they would say, 'I'm not on social media.' And I would say, 'OK. You know, you will be.' And then they would say, 'No, no, no. I value my real-life interactions. I value the moment. I value presence. I value intimacy.' And I would say, ... 'We'll get you eventually.'"
 
"I don't know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and ... it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other ... It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains."
 
"The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, ... was all about: 'How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'"
 
"And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that's going to get you to contribute more content, and that's going to get you ... more likes and comments."
 
"It's a social-validation feedback loop ... exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you're exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology."
 

"The inventors, creators — it's me, it's Mark [Zuckerberg], it's Kevin Systrom on Instagram, it's all of these people — understood this consciously. And we did it anyway."
In this 'confessional', it appears Parker has become "something of a conscientious objector" on social media.
Howeever , as Axios notes, Parker ends with just enough crazy to make you wonder...
Quote :


"Because I'm a billionaire, I'm going to have access to better health care so ... I'm going to be like 160 and I'm going to be part of this, like, class of immortal overlords. [Laughter]
 
Because, you know the [Warren Buffett] expression about compound interest. ... [G]ive us billionaires an extra hundred years and you'll know what ... wealth disparity looks like."

PostSubject: Wisconsin National Guard Plan Power-Grid Collapse Drill Nov. 15-16   Thu Nov 09, 2017 4:06 pm

Wisconsin National Guard Plan Power-Grid Collapse Drill




[size=10]by Tyler Durden[size=9]SHARES
[/size]

[/size]

According to the Wisconsin National Guard Public Affairs Office, a two-day military drill will take place in Columbia County and at Wisconsin’s Emergency Operation Center in Madison simulating a total power grid collapse on November 15-16.

As the press release states “the public should not be alarmed or concerned if they notice an increased law enforcement presence and military personnel, as well as vehicles and equipment, including non-military unmanned aerial vehicles” in the drilling region.
The drill is in conjunction with a national-level exercise, known as GridEx, which is an exercise to simulate a cyber/physical attack on electric and other critical infrastructures across North America. Wisconsin’s drill will involve county and state law enforcements and first responders, including the Wisconsin National Guard.
Maj. Gen. Don Dunbar, Wisconsin’s adjutant general said “GridEx is a great opportunity for our emergency management officials, the National Guard, local first responders and our private industry partners to train together so we are ready to respond if a threat impacted our power grid. While we simply can’t train for every possible scenario, building relationships now makes us all better prepared if we had to respond to a real-world situation.”
The article describes how Wisconsin is preparing for a total grid collapse and warns the preparation has already started. In addition, the report gives timing of the next major ‘full-scale’ drill expected in spring 2018 coined “Dark Sky”.
Quote :


Over the past several years, Wisconsin has placed an emphasis on the importance of preparing for a long-term power outage and developing capabilities to respond to a cyber incident.
 
As a result, the state began developing new partnerships, policies and plans as well as a strategy that culminates in a full-scale exercise in spring 2018 called Dark Sky, which will simulate a power outage caused by a combination of cyber and physical threats. GridEx will help all participants continue to build and refine processes to better prepare for the Dark Sky exercise as well as real-world scenarios.  
[size]
Here is the list of participants who will be drilling on Nov 15-16 in Wisconsin:
[/size]

  • State Emergency Operations Center
  • Business Emergency Operations Center
  • Utilities and transmission providers
  • 65 Soldiers from the National Guard Reaction Force
  • FBI
  • FEMA Region V
  • other Federal agencies

[size]
In July, we warned about the US government quietly preparing for a total grid collapse with the passage of an Executive Order – “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events”.
Here is snippet of section 1 of the executive order:
[/size]
Quote :


Quote :


Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid.
 
Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.
[size]
Just days ago, the Department of Defense wrapped up a national drill from November 04-06 simulating a total grid collapse across the United States.
The bottom line: The United States government is quietly preparing for a major power grid collapse. At this point there are many conflicting sources of what could cause such of an event, such as aging infrastructure, cyber or physical attack, EMP, and or a geomagnetic storm. As a citizen, you’re not allowed to know this knowledge and frankly you will not be prepared- only the government will be. The writing is on the wall, as the government continues to drill for the big day, coined in the report: “Dark Sky”.[/size]

HORROR CULT 
Inside the terrifying NXIVM slave cult ‘where women – including a Hollywood actress – are forced

to hand over naked pics, get branded with the founder’s initials, and are beaten with paddles’

The group’s former publicist has claimed female members of the mysterious 'slave cult' are brainwashed, starved and forced to recruit ‘slaves’.

[size=22]EXCLUSIVE

A HOLLYWOOD actress is among 70 to 80 women “trapped" in a terrifying secret cult in which members are blackmailed, branded and beaten with paddles, according to the group’s former publicist.
Frank Parlato claims the women feel they cannot leave the cult - after leaders allegedly brainwashed them into handing over nude photos and confessions as “collateral" to prove their lifelong loyalty to the group.




The Hollywood actress has since been identified - read our latest story here.






FRANK REPORT

This is the brand one of the cult members claims she was given before escaping
It comes just days after Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg, who claims the group has brainwashed her young daughter India, met with prosecutors in New York and presented evidence against alleged cult leader Keith Raniere, Page Six reported.
Parlato, who was the first to make claims about the cult's allegedly sordid activities on his website The Frank Report, told Sun Online that the women - apparently including India - are terrified to break free from the cult fearing their secrets will be made public if they ever leave.
NXIVM claims to be a self-help group but Parlato says there is a secret dark side to the organisation.
The women’s-only group led by Raniere is known as 'DOS', which Parlato says stands for “dominus obsequious sororium" - Latin for “master over the slave women”.
He claims that to join, women are brainwashed into handing over blackmail-worthy material such as pornographic pictures or financial information.
Once they are a member - or “slave” - they are allegedly encouraged to recruit new women into their “slave pods”, stop dating, and be on call 24 hours a day to their “master”.
If they don’t recruit enough "slaves" or respond to their “masters” fast enough, they're beaten with paddles, Parlato claims.

Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg fears her daughter has been 'brainwashed' by the alleged cult
In one shocking text seen by Sun Online, a desperate member writes: “If I suffer, cry or have any adverse reaction to being hit I get hit more.”
New members are later taken by surprise, told to strip naked and then forcibly branded, according to Parlato.
They allegedly have to follow strict 500 to 800 calorie a day diets because leader Raniere prefers skinny women and tells his followers that fat “interferes” with his energy levels.
The controversial leader is also said to have a harem of women who willingly sleep with him, believing that they will “be healed” by having sex with the 57-year-old - who they apparently call “Vanguard”.

Founder Keith Rainere, pictured, is alleged to have had sex with members and to be aware of the brandings
Parlato said: “The worrying part of all this is that there are still women captured in this cult maintaining 500 to 800 calories a day diets, sleep deprived, brainwashed and with the leader of the cult holding blackmail-worthy material in his possession which he has threatened to release if they leave the cult.
“I have spoken to about a dozen escaped members.
“I have seen many texts including correspondence between a ‘master’ and a ‘slave’.

“I believe there are currently 70 or 80 women in the cult now - but not all of them have been branded.
"You don’t get branded right away. The branding is done by surprise and without disclosure.
“You are told you are going to get a tiny tattoo and you end up being pinned down, no anesthesia, while a doctor takes a hot iron and slowly brands you with about 50 to 100 strokes of this two inch by two inch brand.
“It looks like a symbol but it is actually Raniere’s initials - KR and the actress’s.”

The group's former publicist claims the brands include Keith Raniere's initials and the actress's
According to Parlato, the Emmy-winning Hollywood actress - who Sun Online has decided not to name for legal reasons - is a key recruiter to the cult and has several “slave pods” of around six women each.
He says all of the women go through a ranking system where they earn colours and stripes depending on how many "slaves" they recruit and how well they understand the teachings.
They apparently have to be on call to their “master” 24 hours a day and are set twisted tasks - with one woman allegedly telling Parlato she'd been ordered to seduce a child molester.

Raniere allegedly tells his followers that fat interferes with his 'energy'
Parlato, who worked as NXIVM’s publicist for less a year in 2007, said Raniere uses the self help courses to recruit rich, famous or good-looking women to his inner circle.
He claims to have joined the company without knowing what allegedly goes on behind the scenes.
“If it was just Raniere by himself he would persuade almost no one but he has all these women to induct and hypnotize new women - so you are not just indoctrinated by him but a group of other women - one of them is a well known TV actress so she has influence over them," Parlato said.
“They induct the women into this secret group by telling them it is an all women’s group - they don’t tell the women that Raniere is actually in charge.
“It is sold as something intriguing - an all women’s empowerment group where they would receive training and coaching and do powerful things in the world - like the Masons," he added.
“Then they are told: ‘Give us a nude photograph - come on it’s only us girls’.

“Once they are in they have to give even more 'collateral' to officially join, Parlato said.
“The collateral was originally uploaded on a dropbox but there is also physical box of evidence," he added.
“It includes graphic nude photographs, audio and video confessions of crimes - either fabricated or not, transmittal of assets to be held by the cult, bank account numbers and cheques written to Raniere that will be cashed if people ever leave the cult or reveal its secret practices.
“You are then given certain obligations but it becomes increasingly harrowing and demanding.”

Oxenberg played the character Amanda Carrington on the 1980s TV soap Dynasty
Parlato says he was fired by Raniere when he started probing into NXIVM's financial affairs - and is currently still embroiled in a legal battle with the 57-year-old.
Sun Online reached out to Raniere and the Hollywood actress but has received no comment.
In an earlier statement NXIVM said: "The allegations relayed in the story are built upon sources, some of which are under criminal investigation or already indicted, who act as a coordinated group.”
They added: "We will explore any and all legal remedies to correct these lies

If all is true still the lies!

[WATCH] FAKE NEWS: MSNBC Lies About Hero Who Stopped Texas Church Mass Shooting
Mac Slavo
November 9th, 2017
SHTFplan.com

A panel on MSNBC’s Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday made some false claims about the hero who used his own gun to stop the mass shooting at a Texas church. The media outlet lied on-air quickly alerting anyone who listened to their “fake news” narrative.
If you didn’t know that the mainstream media were all left-leaning democrats, this will surely ice the cake. MSNBC’s panel on Tuesday lied out their backsides off to the public. New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor and host Chuck Todd falsely claimed that NRA instructor Stephen Willeford did not shoot at the Texas church shooter and did not stop his rampage.
“When I was watching President Trump today, and he was making his argument that [the shooter] was essentially stopped by someone with a gun, I kept thinking, ‘but he killed himself,’” Alicindor falsely stated. “The shooter was not stopped, there was not a big gun fight … and I think there needs to be a fact check on how this got stopped in the first place.”
“The narrative here as you saw with Mike Huckabee and the president is a little bit off the rails,” Todd responded. Which was also a bold-faced lie. Wouldn’t it be nice if a liar’s pants actually caught on fire?
https://youtu.be/6JgO7OXjLEM


But Willeford knows what he did. When he heard the gunfire, he grabbed his AR-15 (the scary ones that no one should own and Democrats want to ban) and ran out of his house barefoot to engage the shooter. He was able to shot the gunman twice. “I know I hit him,” Willeford said. “He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his window.”

https://youtu.be/B4HEchh0XD8



Willeford and another civilian got into a vehicle and chased the suspect at 95 mph until he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a ditch. He killed himself before the police could take him into custody. Multiple law enforcement officials confirmed that Willeford saved lives with his heroic actions.

PostSubject: There's No Such Thing As An "American" Homicide Rate   Thu Nov 09, 2017 9:04 pm

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-09/theres-no-such-thing-american-homicide-rate

There's No Such Thing As An "American" Homicide Rate





[size=10]by Tyler Durden
Nov 9, 2017 7:55 PM

Authored by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,
In September, the FBI released new homicide data, and the overall US homicide rate rose for the second year to an eight-year high. [/size]

According to the report, the nationwide homicide rate in the US in 2016 was 5.3 per 100,000, up from 2015's rate of 4.9. 
The homicide rate in 2014 - 4.4 per 100,000 - had been a 51-year low, and comparable to rates not seen since the 1950s. 
Homicide rates still remain well below where they were in the 1980s and 1990s, when homicide rates sometimes exceeded 9 per 100,000. 
When it comes to making any serious analysis, however, nationwide homicide rates for a pl

ace as large as the United States are next to uselessWhen we look at numbers on a state-by-state basis, we find that homicide rates vary from 1.3 per 100,000 in New Hampshire to 11.8 per 100,000 in Louisiana. 
To offer some additional context, I've included rates from Canadian provinces (using Canada's 2015 stats) side by side with US states:

Presented as a map: 

There are clear regional differences in many cases. States in the far north and far northeast of the United States report very low homicide rates while certain homicide "hotspots" apparently in Missouri, Maryland, Illinois, and the deep South are driving up US rates. 
These details emphasize the mistake of speaking of the nationwide US homicide rate as if it were in anyway descriptive of any single trend or legislative reality in the US. 
We often hear about homicides are rampant in "America" - presumably caused by high levels of private gun ownership - but any serious look at the numbers forces us to refine our question and instead ask why some parts of the US have some of the lowest homicide rates on earth, while the situation in other areas is considerably different. 

What Are the Important Factors in Homicides? 

Some places largely free of gun restrictions - like the Dakotas, Utah, Idaho, Minnesota, Vermont, and New Hampshire - have very low homicide rates. But other places with similar or more restrictive laws - such as Missouri, California, and most of Latin America - have much higher rates. Obviously, homicide rates are not simply a function of gun laws. 
Even researchers on the political left are increasingly coming to terms with the fact that homicide rates are not simply a matter of passing prohibitionist laws. 
One of the most recent examples of this is new research described by Leah Libresco at the Washington Times. Libresco noted that few, if any, of the gun bans being floated by policymakers is likely to be effective. Libresco notes
Quote :


…my colleagues and I at FiveThirtyEight spent three months analyzing all 33,000 lives ended by guns each year in the United States, and I wound up frustrated in a whole new way. We looked at what interventions might have saved those people, and the case for the policies I’d lobbied for crumbled when I examined the evidence...
 
I researched the strictly tightened gun laws in Britain and Australia and concluded that they didn’t prove much about what America’s policy should be. Neither nation experienced drops in mass shootings or other gun related-crime that could be attributed to their buybacks and bans. Mass shootings were too rare in Australia for their absence after the buyback program to be clear evidence of progress. And in both Australia and Britain, the gun restrictions had an ambiguous effect on other gun-related crimes or deaths...
 
…no gun owner walks into the store to buy an “assault weapon.” It’s an invented classification that includes any semi-automatic that has two or more features, such as a bayonet mount, a rocket-propelled grenade-launcher mount, a folding stock or a pistol grip. But guns are modular, and any hobbyist can easily add these features at home, just as if they were snapping together Legos. … [S]ilencers limit hearing damage for shooters but don’t make gunfire dangerously quiet. An AR-15 with a silencer is about as loud as a jackhammer. Magazine limits were a little more promising, but a practiced shooter could still change magazines so fast as to make the limit meaningless...
 
By the time we published our project, I didn’t believe in many of the interventions I’d heard politicians tout. I was still anti-gun, at least from the point of view of most gun owners, and I don’t want a gun in my home, as I think the risk outweighs the benefits. But I can’t endorse policies whose only selling point is that gun owners hate them.
[size]
What Libresco did conclude, was that a host of societal issues are driving much of what we hear about in terms of so-called gun violence. Mental illness, suicidegang violence, and domestic violence are all important factors that drive gun violence. The problem, Libresco admits, is that simply prohibiting certain types of guns doesn't really address these issues.

Other factors we've covered here at mises.org include sky-high incarceration rates in the United States, and how the history, residential mobility, and cultural heterogeneity of the Americas make the US and Latin America quite different from Europe and East Asia in terms of homicide and violence. 
To understand the current trends, then, we have to look beyond a few headlines about rare mass shootings and look at larger demographics and societal trends. A focus on legislation, by contrast, tends to substitute wishful thinking for an understanding of the the complex reality.[/size]

Kuwait Orders Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately "As Precaution Against Any Negative Impact That Might Take Place"
by Tyler Durden
Nov 9, 2017 12:58 PM
The drums of war are beating at a deafening pace: with Saudi Arabia ordering its citizens to immediately leave Lebanon on Thursday, just a few hours later Kuwait joined in.
According to the Kuwait News Agency, citing a foreign ministry statement, Kuwait citizens currently in Lebanon are urged to leave the country immediately.
The statement said the order is due to the "circumstances experienced by Lebanon at the moment, as well as a precautionary measure against any negative impact that might take place."
The ministry also urged citizens not to travel to Lebanon, "wishing at the same time security and stability for the Arab country."
At this point it is safe to assume that war between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia/Israel is just a matter of time.
For those wondering what this next regional war could look like, please read our earlier article "As Israel And Saudi Arabia Target Lebanon, What Are Hezbollah's Military Capabilities"

Psalms 144:1 Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.
Jeremiah 48:10  Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.
Luke 22:36  Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
