Illuminati Leak: Current Membership of ‘Committee of 300’

An ex-Illuminati member who is vowing to tell the world everything about the secret society has posted a list of the elite members of the Illuminati and the Committee Of 300 leadership.

After spending 47 years as a high-ranking illuminati member, the anonymous insider says that he wants to reveal everything about the secret society’s plans after it all became “too much to bear” for him.

In his first post the insider revealed the process you have to go through in order to become a member, as well as in-depth information about the ‘Space flights’ program, and shocking revelations about who Obama really is – he is much more evil than anyone realizes apparently.

Now, in his highly anticipated second post the ex-Illuminati member continues to lift the lid on the secret society by revealing the names of the senior leadership.

When man meets metal: rise of the transhumans

https://i.guim.co.uk/img/media/e36237e8cb4b9cb5c817556feea41916325f5852/0_803_5061_3037/master/5061.jpg?w=1300&q=20&auto=format&usm=12&fit=max&dpr=2&s=35835754623119be4d6db5fade8900a1

Earlier this year I went to an event in Austin, Texas, billed as a sneak preview of the evolution of our species. The #Bdyhax Conference, which took place in a downtown exhibition complex, promised a front-row insight into the coming “singularity” – that nirvana foretold by science fiction in which biology and technology would fuse and revolutionise human capability and experience.

The headline acts of the conference were mostly bodyhackers – DIY experimenters who, in their basements and garages, seek to enhance their own flesh and blood with biometric implants and cognitive enablers. These brave pioneers were extending their senses, overcoming physical limitation, Dan-Daring themselves and the rest of us into the future.

At least that was the idea. The reality of the convention was a little more mundane. It was overpriced and sparsely attended. Disparate and awkward groups of the pierced and the tattooed wandered between lectures about the ethics of body augmentation, and budget demonstrations of virtual worlds, past stalls flogging various kinds of neurotropic snake oil or enthusing over the transforming possibilities of magnets and LED lights inserted under the skin.

Occasionally, over a long couple of days, there was a genuine spark of wonder – the demonstration of a vest that converted sound into multiple vibrations felt across the back, promising a new way for deaf people to hear; a drummer who had lost an arm, and had customised his own prosthetic that could now play like Buddy Rich; a woman, Moon Ribas, who had wired herself to experience tiny shifts in tectonic plates, and was converting those tremors into choreography.

These latter experiments seemed to exist somewhere between art, medicine and counterculture. They shared a knowledge of the newly understood plasticity of the brain, and a utopian idea of technology, and were pushing that understanding in novel, homemade directions. They were, at least, the most convincing hints that this introverted subculture – which styles itself as “transhuman” – was sometimes knocking at the doors of perception just as determinedly as those early experimenters with hallucinogenic drugs in the last century.

David Vintiner, a British photographer, has been following this subculture for the past two years. He divides his pictures of transhumanists – some of which are reproduced here – into three groups: those who are working to extend life, those toying with implants as body art, and those attempting to make permanent changes to the human condition. The pictures capture precisely the ironies that were on display in Austin, Texas: the odd union between scientific innovators and garden-shed fantasists.

“We set out at the beginning to photograph people in a domestic environment as much as possible,” Vintiner’s collaborator Gem Fletcher tells me. “These things are mostly happening in people’s bedrooms.”

One of the inspirations for Vintiner’s journey into this culture was Professor Kevin Warwick, deputy vice-chancellor at Coventry University, who back in 1998 was the first person to put a silicon chip transponder under his skin (that enabled him to open doors and switch on lights automatically as he moved about his department) and to declare himself “cyborg”. Four years later Warwick pioneered a “Braingate” implant, which involved hundreds of electrodes tapping into his nervous system and transferring signals across the internet, first to control the movements of a bionic hand, and then to connect directly and “communicate” with his wife, who had a Braingate of her own.

In some ways Warwick’s work seemed to set the parameters of the bodyhacking experience: full of ambition, somewhat risky, mostly outlawed. The Braingate system is now being explored in America to help some patients suffering paralysis, but Warwick’s DIY work has not been widely taken up by either mainstream medicine, academia or commercial tech companies. He and his wife remain the only couple to have communicated “nervous system to nervous system” through pulses that it took six weeks for their brains to “hear”. “It was a bit out there,” Warwick told me last week. “And though my papers get cited, I’ve not become a member of the Royal Society, or received any of the normal plaudits.”

If Warwick has cyborg disciples they mostly exist among the bodyhackers, transhumanists and grinders that Vintiner has photographed. “I think they are often the ones now pushing the field,” Warwick says. “Though they are taking a lot of risks sometimes by doing these things in their garage and not a lab.”

Speaking to the people in Vintiner’s pictures, you hear about some of those risks, but also the extent of new technological possibilities – and the current limits to them. We have become used to implants to fix medical problems, for diabetes, for heart conditions. And as a culture we have long accepted the therapeutic possibilities of plastic surgery. But the idea that we might augment our natural senses and abilities through surgery remains a difficult ethical question.

Some of the people that Vintiner has photographed have had their desire for the superhuman thrust upon them. James Young lost his arm and leg in a rail accident in east London in 2012. He subsequently enjoyed a degree of publicity when he won a competition offered by a computer gaming company to receive a bionic arm, laser lit, and with phone-charging ports and a personal drone attachment.

Eighteen months on, Young has mixed feelings about the arm, which he helped to design with London-based prosthetic sculptor Sophie de Oliveira Barata. For all its gadgetry and futuristic style, the arm is heavy to wear and limited in “normal” function. He usually does without it. He is most grateful that the arm has led him into a new career as a TV presenter, partly from the interest it generated. He plans, however, to replace it with a model that can be properly attached to his bone, and eventually integrated with his neural intention.

Though the arm was a great conversation starter – he has been adopted by the transhuman community – Young fears that augmentation will continue to be a marginal interest. Why would tech companies risk surgical solutions, he asks, when externalising technology is much safer and cheaper? “That is why people slice themselves up at home or in tattoo parlours or whatever. The corporate commercial risk is hard to address.”

Rob Spence, the “Eyeborg” tells a similar tale. Nearly a decade ago he replaced the eye he had lost in a childhood accident with a video camera he could use to record and transmit real-time footage of what he was seeing. Spence had grown up on superheroes and wanted to fill the absence in his eye socket with a presence. Again he remains a lone pioneer of the procedure, which he developed and installed with the aid of friends at home. He thinks a squeamishness about the right to privacy of people being recorded is to blame, though he believes people will soon be more comfortable with interventions like his.

“For me, the best example is always breast augmentation,” Spence says. In terms of transhuman additions, “it is like we are in the 60s of boob jobs. When certain kinds of things make people’s lives better, like laser eye surgery or boob jobs, then eventually more people do it. They like not wearing glasses, or they like having larger breasts. We haven’t reached that point yet.”

He sees the eventual integration of tech into our bodies as inevitable: “There is a clear progression. First it was a big room at IBM, then it was your desktop, then your laptop or tablet, then your smartphone – and next the digital will be part of your body. The question, I guess, is at what point would someone lop off their arm and replace it with something bionic? It will get there, but it’s a long way off.”

Over the years, Spence has talked to various commercial companies about developing applications for the eyeborg, but eventually they all backed off. “It is an odd product in that it raises issues both legally and medically,” he says. “People end up seeing it as, at best, an elaborate toy for one-eyed people.”

Neil Harbisson is more messianic about the possibilities of bodyhacking. Harbisson, who lives in Barcelona, was born with a rare ocular condition that only allows him to see colours in shades of grey. He had an antenna fixed into his skull by a surgeon friend in 2006. The antenna translates the colour spectrum into musical notes and transmits the data to Harbisson through bone conduction. He sees colour as sound. Blue is middle C.

He views the antenna as an art project which designs his perception of reality. “It is not the union of two senses but the creation of a new sense,” he suggests, one that allows him to also “see” ultraviolet and infrared light.

Again he encounters a lot of resistance to the idea that he is “improving” his sensory apparatus. “People find it ethical to recreate pre-existing sense and pre-existing body parts,” he says, “but when it comes to new body parts and new sense it is something that people find unnecessary. I think that will change. People will start to see that the best way of improving the planet is to design and improve ourselves. If we all had night vision, for example, we would not have to use artificial light at night. We wouldn’t need to light our cities. The more senses we have, the less energy we will need.”

To advance this cause, Harbisson helped created the Cyborg Foundation, which acts as a reference point for young bodyhackers and transhumanists around the world. He himself feels he has evolved into a post-human condition with the addition of his antenna, which connects him, he argues, more closely with other life forms that share similar cognitive apparatus: bees, for example, which also “see” ultraviolet.

He calls this awareness “transspecies” and compares it to the transgender movement. “We have people who are interested in creating new senses and organs, and people who identify as transspecies are starting to realise they are not alone, though up until now they have not been able to say it aloud, in case people might laugh,” he says.

“We have many of the same problems [as transgender groups]. Bioethical committees did not historically accept transgender surgeries, and in our case they do not accept transspecies surgeries [for people who want augmentation]. They worry about people coming out of hospital with an antenna sticking out of their heads and what it would do to the reputation of the hospital. But that will change…”

In the meantime, there are plenty of less radical possibilities for the “transspecies curious” to experiment with. Some, like Rin Räuber, only want the simple buzz of feeling a magnetic field (and picking up a spoon) with an implant in their finger. “What I do is not rooted in a grand vision for the future of humanity,” Räuber has said. “It’s like a child playing around, saying, ‘Look what I can do, isn’t this cool?’”

Other experiments are more trippy. The Eyesect helmet created by a German collective called the Constitute uses externally mounted video cameras to allow wearers to experience different species’ perceptions of the world – through the swivel eyes of a chameleon or the long face of a horse.

Christian Zöllner, who helped create Eyesect, insists it is an art project (“made with punk attitude and punk tools”) not a tech-led design. It’s “an aesthetic playground for people to experience and witness the limits of their perceptions.” Users often fall over.

In Mark O’Connell’s recent book-length adventure into the DIY cyborg world, To Be a Machine, he describes transhuman ambition as “an expression of the profound human longing to transcend the confusion and desire and impotence and sickness of the body, cowering in the darkening shadow of its own decay. This longing had historically been the domain of religion, and was now the increasingly fertile terrain of technology.”

The people in David Vintiner’s pictures buy into this faith in different ways. James Young, who sees his “futuristic” arm as the beginning of a journey and not the end, is sanguine about the reality but hopeful about the implications. The day before we speak, he showed his limb to a class of six-year-olds. “They loved it,” he says, “and I was trying not to be too negative. They were saying: ‘Does it make you super-strong?’ And I was like: ‘Not exactly … but if it gets bashed, I can’t feel pain on it.’”

At the very least, bodyhacking futurism acts as an inspiration to others. “I have had lots of people contact me to say, you know, thanks for being out there with your crazy arm, it makes me feel better about my boring peach-coloured NHS one,” says Young. “We are realising that giving someone a limb that is really ugly and impersonal is not the nicest thing to do maybe. “And that is what is really great about this: I got to design it myself.”

James Young, prosthetic arm

At 22, James Young lost his arm and leg in a freak accident when he fell from a Docklands light railway platform under a train. After the accident, in 2012, he subsequently applied for and was chosen to receive a prosthetic arm inspired by Metal Gear Solid, one of the world’s bestselling computer games. The arm featured a laser, a USB port in the wrist and a mount for a tiny drone.

The arm was really made as an artistic project to explore the alternative functions that an arm might have. Those functions worked very well. But because of the nature of my amputation, it has proved kind of a burden to wear. It is very physically demanding.

The project has helped me to understand that it is great to have alternative functions, but it was the core functions that you needed.

Because it was created by artists, there was only so much integration with the body. I am now exploring the further integration, with a bone implant that will allow me to mount an arm on to my skeleton and to be controlled naturally, using brain signals. All of that is obviously very cutting edge, and the NHS can’t afford it – so I’ve been crowdfunding for a year or so. I have £35,000 so far, about half what I need.

If I’m honest, probably the main way the arm has changed my life is by opening conversations, and opening doors to what is actually possible.

I can accept that I am never going to have a bionic arm as good as a human arm. But I am excited to contribute to that push to get it as good as it can be. I like to use the canvas of my body as an opportunity.

Neil Harbisson, cyborg artist

Born with a rare condition that means he can only see the world in black and white, Harbisson – who was born in Britain but grew up in Catalonia – had an antenna implanted in his skull in 2004. This translates the colour spectrum into different vibrations, enabling him to “hear” colours.

Many people think that I had a problem, and that is why I created the antenna. It was more that I was curious to experience anything around me that I cannot sense. That included colour. But it also now includes infrared and ultraviolet, which I can also receive.

Since I had the antenna, I feel more connected to reality but also to other species and to nature.

If you create a new sense, your brain creates the intelligence to understand it. In the beginning, what I was hearing was chaotic. It slowly became information that I could understand, and then it became perception.

Later, I started having feelings for different colours. My favourite colour is infrared, which is invisible to humans. It has a very low frequency and is calm.

I define myself as transspecies because the definition of human no longer contains me. A human does not have an antenna as a body part, a human does not have infrared and ultraviolet perception. But these are senses and organs that other species have and I feel a connection to them.

If I see many bees going to a specific flower, I understand why because there is such a high level of ultraviolet on that flower.

I think that, eventually, all humans will want that sense too.

Tiana Sinclair, mindwave technology

A researcher into computer science, linguistics and visual culture, Tiana Sinclair creates events to explore transhuman advances. In the picture below she is demonstrating mindwave technology, which converts the energy of focused attention in the brain through a headset to control external objects, in this case to raise a drone from the ground.

Wearable tech has reached a level of acceptance in terms of health and fitness – the next stage will be all about interfaces. In the future you will press a button to send a signal to one part of your brain or another to help you concentrate to play the flute, or learn a language, by enhancing energy in that area. Electromagnetic stimulators of the mind can create the kind of effect we use every day when we drink coffee or whatever.

At one of the conferences that I organise, we did a couple of demonstrations of what was possible: in one you played ping pong with a headset using your brain; in the other we had a drone which was operated by mindwave. The idea is to bypass the need for a console. You have to be in a state of mind which is not too relaxed and not too concentrated. Once this technology becomes developed in the mainstream, there are many possibilities: already there are artificial limbs that are beginning to be controlled in this way.

Rob Spence, the Eyeborg project

A documentary film-maker who lost his eye in a childhood accident, Rob Spence had a camera and transmitter fitted into his eye socket in 2009, enabling him to record and transmit video.

I am quite big with one-eyed people. Moms email me when their kid has lost an eye in an accident, and explain how they say: “Look at this guy, Billy, isn’t that cool”. But for every mom like that, there’s someone else saying: “You are invading our privacy.” Glasshole, I get called. A lot of people believe it is creepy to have a video feed of your life – though as the cyborg anthropologist Amber Case argues, our smartphones have made us all cyborgs really. Everyone is wired now.

The ultimate goal would be to hook up the camera with the brain somehow. There are a few companies trying that. Some have tried to put a chip on the retina, which gives you a very light and bright representation of reality. Other work is being done to create an artificial retina which can decode the information the eye sends to the brain.

Tech companies don’t seem interested in commercialising the Eyeborg. A guy at Apple sent me back an email saying “please piss off”. I think he thought it would damage his credibility if he associated with me. There is a bit of “bearded lady” involved with this still. Some think it’s great, others see it as a freakshow.

Christian Zöllner, Eyesect helmet

Zöllner is part of Berlin-based design collective the Constitute, which runs immersive, homemade sensory experiments. Eyesect is a helmet with mounted cameras that lets you “see” the world as other species would.

Because your eye has been in the same position on your head since before you were born, you’re connected to your environment in a particular way. All the motion of your muscles is dictated by that visual field. When you tinker with that some people get dizzy, fall over or even faint because the disruption is so intense. We’ve experimented with the micro-cameras that you put inside your body for certain medical procedures, and for a low budget it was really stunning.

Everyone reacts differently. It is like acid without acid, your whole physical situation is suddenly not safe any more. You can’t walk in a straight line but you can concentrate on what you are experiencing. We started out trying to create the visual experience of a chameleon, but the most successful is the eyesect vision of a horse. Experiencing having eyes on the side of your head is very alien – but fun to explore.”

US Antifa and other Leftist groups met in Germany with al-Qaeda and ISIS to plot Trump’s destruction

These hard-Leftist groups, although they claim to be against fascism, are fascist to the core, wanting to shut down, violently if necessary, anyone who disagrees with them. They claim to be against hate, but are more hateful than anyone, and so they see natural allies in al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. Both hate the West, both hate the U.S., both hate the Judeo-Christian tradition, so they see each other as kindred spirits.

“EXCLUSIVE: US left wing groups travelled to Germany for the G20 Summit last July to meet with Al qaeda and ISIS leaders and plot the destruction of President Trump, secret FBI investigation reveals,” by Ed Klein, Dailymail.com, October 29, 2017:

Edward Klein is the former editor in chief of the New York Times Magazine and the author of numerous bestsellers including his fourth book on the Clintons, Guilty as Sin, in 2016. His latest book is All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump will be released October 30, 2017

A secret FBI investigation of the violent ‘resistance’ movement on college campuses against President Trump has led to an alarming discovery—the collusion between American anarchists and foreign terrorists in the Islamic State and Al qaeda, according to a confidential ‘Informational Report’ by FBI field offices.

‘There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between U.S. radicals and the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups,’ stated the FBI field report, which was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe on July 11, 2017, and which is being published for the first time in my new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.

The FBI report on efforts by Islamic terrorists to recruit followers among violent U.S. groups like Antifa corroborates President Trump’s controversial claim, following last summer’s deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left-wing anarchist groups are just as dangerous as right-wing white supremacists.

A secret FBI investigation of the violent ‘resistance’ movement on college campuses against President Trump has led to an alarming discovery—the collusion between American anarchists and foreign terrorists in the Islamic State and Al Qaeda (Pictured above are the protests in Charlottesville, VA)

‘This is the greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party,’ the FBI report declared.

Last summer, the FBI dispatched a task force to Europe to report on massive demonstrations planned by radical groups, such as the German contingent Antifaschistische Aktion, to protest President Trump’s attendance at a meeting of leaders and central bank governors of the G20 group of major industrialized countries

‘Task force covered G20 meeting in Hamburg, studied intel from local authorities, Interpol, and other assets, determined that as assumed U.S.-backed anarchist/radical groups had traveled to Germany and took place in the violence,’ the FBI’s summary stated.

‘There is also evidence of meetings between these individuals and associates of ISIS. There is an urgent need to closely surveil the identified individuals.’

The agents sent by the FBI paid particular attention to a group of anarchists from Oakland, a major port city that lies adjacent to the campus of the University of California at Berkeley, the scene of several violent protests….

CIA assassinated JFK, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King: Writer

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) murdered former US President John F. Kennedy, his brother, Robert F. Kennedy (RFK), and Martin Luther King, an American author and political analyst in Chicago says.

Stephen Lendman made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV while commenting on the release of documents related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy (JFK) in November 1963.

On Friday night, President Donald Trump said he will release all the files related to the Kennedy assassination, with some redactions, in order “to put any and all conspiracy theories to rest.”

He said he talked to White House chief of staff John Kelly, officials at the CIA and other federal agencies, about this issue.

On Thursday, Trump allowed the release of about 2,800 documents related to the Kennedy murder, but delayed the publication of some “sensitive” files at the request of the CIA.

Trump said that he had “no choice” but to withhold information as requested by the CIA, FBI and other agencies, which argued that releasing all of the JFK assassination files would jeopardize US national security.

Lendman said actually releasing all of the Kennedy assassination documents “might jeopardize the CIA through exposing it for having assassinated John Kennedy, and Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King.”

“We need to get thousands of files released on them as well,” he stated.

“Sirhan Sirhan is still alive, in prison. He had nothing to do with the killing of Bobby Kennedy. Lee Harvey Oswald had nothing to do with the killing of Jack Kennedy. The CIA killed Jack Kennedy,” Lendman said, referring to the 35th president of the United States.

“And Kennedy was not shot twice from behind as the official report said. He was shot at least four times, from the front and from the back. And there was a bullet hole in the windshield of his limousine, and that was covered up, rather poorly, but it was covered up,” he noted.

Trump only released files that were worthless, the analyst said, adding “anything incriminating the CIA would have been eliminated.”

Lendman said that Oswald “was set up” and then “he was assassinated. He was assassinated by Jack Ruby, who was eliminated also.”

“And the moral of that story is: ‘dead men tell no tales,’” he observed.

Kennedy served as the president of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.

The President’s Commission on the Assassination of Kennedy, known unofficially as the Warren Commission, was established by former President Lyndon B. Johnson in November 1963 to investigate the assassination of JFK.

The commission’s final 888-page report released in September 1964 concluded that Oswald acted entirely alone in assassinating Kennedy.

However, many researchers are unconvinced by the official government account and argue that Oswald was part of a conspiracy to kill the charismatic 46-year-old president. The assassination of Kennedy has been the subject of conspiracy theories for more than 50 years.

Democratic Congressman John Lewis, a friend of Kennedy, told The Hill recently that he did not believe the selected release would end questions about the former president’s death.

“I think there will be people — be historians or scholars and writers — [who] would raise some questions about what happened and how it happened,” the 77-year-old politician said. “There will be people saying, like they were saying 50 years ago, ‘Why did [Kennedy] go to Texas, why Dallas?”

Thailand: Ex-jailbirds tapped to make guns

To prosecutors these are evidence the makers must be jailed for illegal gun-making. To the prime minister, they’re proof the makers are needed for the army. (Post Today)

Inmates convicted of unlawfully making firearms will be recruited to help produce weapons for the military after they complete their sentences, under a plan proposed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

The prime minister has instructed the Justice Ministry’s Corrections Department to survey the number of detainees found guilty of illegally making firearms and those who meet the criteria will undergo training in military firearms manufacturing, Defence Ministry spokesman Kongcheep Tantravanich said.

The meeting of the Defence Council, chaired by Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon, also agreed with the prime minister’s proposal, the spokesman said.

The Royal Thai Army’s Ordnance Department has been assigned to conduct the training with the goal of feeding personnel into the defence industry.

After these prisoners complete their prison terms, they would potentially be eligible for roles with the Defence Technology Institute or the Defence Industry and Energy Centre, under the Defence Ministry, the spokesman said.

Referring to concerns about the hiring of inmates, Lt Gen Kongcheep said he does not want the public to look at this matter negatively. These people previously made firearms secretly, but now they would do the job in a proper manner, the spokesman noted.

Meanwhile, Pol Col Naras Savestanan, director-general of the Corrections Department, said Monday he had instructed 142 prisons and detention facilities across the country to survey the number of prisoners convicted of producing firearms illegally in line with the policy given by Gen Prayut and Gen Prawit.

These inmates would be taken to undergo proper training sessions in manufacturing firearms so they can be brought into the country’s defence industry under the supervision of the Defence Ministry.

Hillary Clinton’s Links To Fake Russian Dossier Become Clear

Several top Democrats should be summoned to testify before the US Senate Intelligence Committee on the infamous Trump-Russia dossier, US Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) has said.

Her remarks were prompted by new revelations linking the file to the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign, Collins, who is a member of the Senate’s Intelligence Committee, was emphatic that Hillary Clinton’s election campaign manager, John Podesta, and the former head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Debbie Wasserman Schultz, “absolutely need to be recalled.”

She added that they were most likely aware of the Democrats role in the preparation of this document.

“It’s difficult to imagine that a campaign chairman, that the head of the DNC would not know of an expenditure of this magnitude and significance. But perhaps there’s something more going on here. But certainly it’s worth additional questioning of those two witnesses,” she told CBS’ Face the Nation.

She said further that Marc Elias, a lawyer representing Hillary for America and the DNC, should be questioned “more than anyone.” On Tuesday, the Washington Post alleged that Elias retained research firm Fusion GPS in April 2016 to continue research into Trump’s alleged coordination with Russia; and which later became known as the Steele dossier.

On the same day, Elias’ law firm, Perkins Coie, which represented the Clinton campaign and the DNC, confirmed it had hired Fusion GPS in April 2016. The funding arrangement brokered in the spring of 2016 lasted until right before the election, AP reported earlier this week, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The document, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, alleged a compromising relationship between Trump and the Kremlin. It was finalized in December 2016, and published online by BuzzFeed in January. It contained unsubstantiated claims of links and allegations of deals between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

It was funded initially by a Republican-funded journalism website, The Washington Free Beacon. However, the website insisted the enquiry had no Russian angle at that time. The alleged collusion between Trump and Russia became the focal point of the research after it was taken over by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

The Clinton campaign paid more than $5.6 million to Perkins Coie, recording the expenditures as “legal services,” according to the Federal Election Commission. The DNC paid the law firm more than $2.9 million for “legal and compliance consulting”and reported $66,500 for research consulting.

Taking note of the recent revelations concerning the dossier, the US House Intelligence Committee has been granted access to Fusion GPS bank account records as part of its investigation into the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

On Sunday, Donald Trump lashed out in a series of tweets at the dossier and said something should be done about Hillary Clinton’s links to the “fake dossier,” as the US president put it.

“Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier,” he wrote, later adding, that there is “so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out.”

Earlier this week, Trump said it is “commonly agreed” that there was no collusion between his presidential bid and the Russian government, and accused Clinton of being the one who really colluded with Russia.

Children Forced into Manual Labor that Helped Promote Global Pedophilla

by Thinker

The grim reality of manual child labor in the early 20th century has been captured in a series of heartbreaking images. The images have been colorized to fully capture the tragedies the children were forced to endure at ages as young as 12. One of the images shows a 14-year-old Italian girl working in a paper box factory in 1914.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-…labor.html

When the industrial revolution first came to Britain and the U.S., there was a high demand for labor. Families quickly migrated from the rural farm areas to the newly industrialized cities to find work. Once they got there, things did not look as bright as they did. To survive in even the lowest level of poverty, families had to have every able member of the family go to work. This led to the high rise in child labor in factories. Children were not treated well, overworked, and underpaid for a long time before anyone tried to change things for them.

Wages and Hours:

Children as young as six years old during the industrial revolution worked hard hours for little or no pay. Children sometimes worked up to 19 hours a day, with a one-hour total break. This was a little bit on the extreme, but it was not common for children who worked in factories to work 12-14 hours with the same minimal breaks. Not only were these children subject to long hours, but also, they were in horrible conditions. Large, heavy, and dangerous equipment was very common for children to be using or working near. Many accidents occurred injuring or killing children on the job. Not until the Factory Act of 1833 did things improve. Children were paid only a fraction of what an adult would get, and sometimes factory owners would get away with paying them nothing. Orphans were the ones subject to this slave-like labor.

The factory owners justified their absence of payroll by saying:

In 2014, the number of UK-born children thought to have been trafficked for sexual exploitation more than doubled last year, the National Crime Agency said. Fifty-six minors from the UK were flagged up as potential victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation in 2013 – a rise of 155% on 2012. The government said it was unlikely the data reflected the scale of the issue. The NCA data suggested the number of foreign children identified as potential victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation in the UK also rose by 11%, to 88. The most common nationality or country of origin for child victims of trafficking (not just for sexual abuse) was Vietnam, followed by the UK and then Albania. The figures come from the National Referral Mechanism (NRM), a government safeguarding framework which authorities and charities refer potential trafficking victims to. The NCA said a total of 1,746 people from 112 different countries were highlighted as potential victims of trafficking in 2013 – up 47% on the previous year.

THERE IS A GROWING PROBLEM IN THE WORLD THAT IS A “DANGER” TO ALL THE CHILDREN & WON’T STOP UNTIL THOSE DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE AT THE VERY TOP, COVERUP PEDOPHILIA ARE NO LONGER IN A POSITION TO PROTECT THE PREDATOR!

People were thought to have been trafficked for various reasons, including sexual exploitation and labour. Nearly two thirds of those referred were female (1,122) and around a quarter (450) were children. Liam Vernon, head of the NCA’s UK human trafficking centre, said: “Increased awareness, both of human trafficking in its various forms and the obligation of first responders to use the National Referral Mechanism, is a likely contributor to the increased number of referrals in 2013. “We know that this is a crime which affects some of society’s most vulnerable people, and some victims will remain undetected. “The NCA is committed to relentlessly disrupting what is a criminal trade in human misery.”

Home Office minister Karen Bradley said the figures were “unlikely to show the full scale of modern slavery nor the human suffering behind each statistic”. “The National Crime Agency is leading an enhanced and co-ordinated response to targeting trafficking gangs, we are increasing protection for victims, and we are strengthening legislation through a modern slavery bill,” she added. “The bill will send the strongest possible message to criminals that if you are involved in this disgusting trade in human beings, you will be arrested, you will be prosecuted and you will be locked up.”

 

Saudi Arabia Poisoning Yemen’s Water by Biological Weapons

“Poisonous gases were spread in the sky after the US, Saudi and Israeli fighter jets’ direct airstrikes and they came down to the ground with the rain and penetrated and contaminated our underground waters,” Luqman said on Saturday.

He added that after the latest airstrike using the banned gases, symptoms of cholera were seen in the Yemeni children.

“Therefore, it was a biological war as Saudi Arabia has already used all types of banned weapons against us,” Luqman said.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 15,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has drove the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.

Britain Is Bleeding: Violent Crime Rises In England Despite Gun Control

Britain is not so great anymore. Criminals will find a way. Take away guns they’ll use a knife, take away knives they’ll use a baseball bat or a 2 x 4 and so on.

According to the Evening Standard, the city of London has seen a 47 percent rise in knife crimes, including “214 killings, 391 attempted murders, 438 rapes, 182 other sexual assaults, and 14,429 robberies. There were also more than 18,500 assaults involving an injury or intent to inflict harm with a blade and 2,816 threats to kill with a knife.”

According to The Telegraph, latest figures confirm London is more dangerous than New York, noting New York and London have similar populations (about 8 million), but in London burglary is six times more likely, rape is three times more likely, and the risk of being robbed is 50 percent higher.

Too bad the left just simply cannot understand and learn

 

It’s not at all surprising that at least 28% of Democrats consider themselves to be atheists. Fascinating…

This has to be embarrassing . . . if you’re an atheist. A new study performed at the University of York used targeted magnetism to shut down part of the brain. The result: belief in God disappeared among more than 30 percent of participants.

That in itself may not seem so embarrassing, but consider that the specific part of the brain they frazzled was the posterior medial frontal cortex—the part associated with detecting and solving problems, i.e., reasoning and logic.

In other words, when you shut down the part of the brain most associated with logic and reasoning, greater levels of atheism result.

UK Crime surge makes London ‘even more dangerous than NEW YORK’

According to the statistics London has almost three times
the number of reported rapes than New York City.

Figures released earlier this week uncovered the crisis facing British police forces
as crime rates across the country surged by 13 per cent.

The last decade has seen London’s Metropolitan Police move away from neighbourhood patrols
which criminal justice experts have blamed for the rise in crime.

The damning figures come amid increased pressure on the capital’s police force
to save £400 million before 2020,
with the number of officers expected to fall below 30,000 for the first time in more than a decade.
