    They could temporarily contract for outsiders to train military specialists to run the military systems, thereafter the military specialists could train more on an ongoing basis.

    Seasoned weather watcher James Reynolds of Earth Uncut TV was on hand at the active Anak Krakatau volcano in Indonesia on August 12, where he recorded some impressive aerial video. Reynolds reported “multiple explosions” like the one seen in this video, throughout his visit to the area. “Some of those lava bombs were size of trucks,” he wrote on Twitter.

    When the swamp is so deep it may be necessary to pit the alligators against the pythons as one step towards draining it.

    Wrong right there. It looks like Klinton & Co. were the ones conspiring with Russians as opposed to Jr. who simply was open to being given opposition research material. (which is NOT illegal) The information wasn't illegal and they solicited him.

    I'm saying that one possibility is that he must cut deals with various swamp factions in order to stay alive and in office while trying to make progress towards his goals. The other option is that he is willingly cooperative and therefore responsible for Yemen etc.

    Would it help at all if he ended up like JFK and Pence took over? Do you really think that the powers that have been in charge will just go quietly if he looks them straight in the eye and says "Be Gone!"?

    The answer depends on how much control you believe he currently has of US foreign policy.

    No, it makes no sense to put national security into the hands of a private corporation, the government should have its own IT experts to handle it.

    OPEC revised slightly down on Monday its estimates for global oil demand growth in 2018 and 2019, while it revised up—for yet another month—its forecast for non-OPEC supply growth. In its Monthly Oil Market Report published on Monday, OPEC revised down its oil demand growth forecast for 2018 by 20,000 bpd from the previous month’s projection and now sees the world demand for oil increasing by 1.64 million bpd, due to weaker-than-anticipated demand in Latin America and the Middle East in the second quarter. Total global oil demand is expected to reach 98.83 million bpd this year, OPEC’s latest estimates show. For 2019, global oil demand growth is expected to slow down from 2018, with growth forecast at 1.43 million bpd, some 20,000 bpd lower than OPEC’s prediction last month. Next year, total world oil consumption is anticipated to cross the 100-million-bpd mark and reach 100.26 million bpd. In 2019, the Americas will be the key OECD demand growth driver, while China and India will see the highest oil demand growth levels among non-OECD countries, according to OPEC. Referring to non-OPEC oil supply, OPEC revised up its forecast for 2018 by 73,000 bpd from the previous MOMR to 59.62 million bpd this year, an increase of 2.08 million bpd year-on-year, mostly due to higher-than-forecast Chinese supply. For 2019, the United States, Brazil, Canada, the United Kingdom, Kazakhstan, Australia, and Malaysia will be the main growth drivers, while Mexico and Norway are expected to see the largest declines, OPEC said, but noted that “the 2019 forecast is subject to many uncertainties.” More at: https://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/OPEC-Revises-Down-Global-Oil-Demand-Growth-Estimate.html

    Hosted by technology non-profit R00tz Asylum, the competition was held on the sidelines of the annual Def Con hacking conference in Las Vegas, where RT reports that children between the ages of 8 and 17 were tasked with hacking into replica election office websites in key “battleground” states where the upcoming US midterm elections in November are expected to be tight. Of the 39 contestants who entered, 35 were successful in breaking into the sites with the fastest being 11-year old Audrey Jones. She cracked the site’s code in just 10 minutes. While R00tz Asylum’s mantra is “hacking for good,” it exposes glaring vulnerabilities to the cyber security of the US election system despite a whopping $380 million approved by Congress to improve cyber-security for elections in 2018 alone. But blaming Hillary's loss on an 11-year-old American girl doesn't have quite the same impact as the nefarious-sounding Russian hacking empire...

    Many Swedes were horrified in early 2017 when U.S. President Donald Trump linked immigration to rising crime in Sweden, but an increasing number now agree with him. Amid soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education, and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity, resentment in Sweden has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years. And tonight is one of the worst night for violence in recent history as police report multiple gangs of masked youths rampaging across three major Swedish cities, setting cars on fire in what seems like a coordinated action. Multiple arson attacks on vehicles in #Gothenburg tonight - An estimated 15 cars alleged to have been torched - Youths with molotov cocktails are reported to have set fire to the vehicles - Other arson attacks reported in Trollhättan

    Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in Romania over the weekend to protest corruption and demand the government's resignation, Deutsche Welle reported Aug. 12. Anti-corruption protests are common in Romania and demonstrations have reached sizes similar to those over the weekend in recent years. However, the government's crackdown this time around was unique and may force the European Union to become involved.

    Current CIA director Gina Haspel described graphic acts of deliberate physical torture including the waterboarding of a suspected Al-Qa’ida terrorist under her supervision when she was chief of base at a CIA black site in Thailand in 2002, according to declassified CIA cables – most of which she wrote or authorized – obtained by the National Security Archive through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit and posted on the Web today. The Haspel cables detail conditions the public has only seen in the infamous Abu Ghraib photographs from Iraq of detainees hooded and shackled, forced nudity, wall slamming, and box confinement, as well as “enhanced techniques” never photographed such as the simulated drowning of suspects on the waterboard. Waterboarding is a war crime under both U.S. and international law, dating back to U.S. prosecution of Japanese solders for torturing U.S. POWs during World War II. Although the CIA redacted Haspel’s name and those of the CIA contract psychologists James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen who administered the waterboard, other declassified documents (including the 2004 CIA Inspector General report) and public statements confirm their leadership of the torture of alleged terrorist Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri at the black site between November 15 and December 4, 2002. “Release of Gina Haspel’s torture cables shows the power of the Freedom of Information Act to bring accountability even to the highest levels of the CIA,” said Archive director Tom Blanton, who first identified the Haspel cables from a footnote (336 on p. 67) in the Senate Intelligence Committee torture report declassified in 2014.
