    In case you haven’t heard (and you probably haven’t due to the media blackout on the subject), the largest two-year global average temperature drop in a century occurred between February 2016 and February 2018. Global average temperature dropped .056C over that period according to the GISS Surface Analysis (GISSTEMP) team at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. To find a two-year period even close to that drop, you have to back to the 1982-1984 time period when a .047C drop occurred. GISSTEMP is pretty much the gold standard when it comes to reporting global average temperature. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) uses GISSTEMP data in their reports. Included in the data is the biggest five-month average global temperature drop ever recorded between February to June in 2016. The fourth largest five-month drop occurred from February to June of 2017. But how can that be with all of these “warmest year ever” reports? The reason, of course, is that pretty much all mainstream coverage on climate change is agenda — not fact — driven. This is why there is wall-to-wall coverage of the off-the-cuff and, admittedly, rather silly statement of Mo Brooks (R-Alabama) about falling rocks causing sea level rise during a congressional hearing and nary a peep regarding the NASA data from 2016-2018. Because if, in fact, global temperature has dropped for any significant amount of time, it gives “deniers” a leg to stand on in the climate-change debate, which — despite carbon-credit salesman Al Gore’s pronouncements on the subject — is still very much ongoing.

    “Your referral has been documented and forwarded to the FBI Houston Field Office for any action deemed necessary,” wrote Steven D’Antuono, the section chief of the Financial Crimes Section of the U.S. Department of Justice, earlier this month to Cheryl Sullenger, the senior vice president of the pro-life group Operation Rescue. This is the most promising move by a government entity in the case involving allegations that abortionist Douglas Karpen, M.D., murdered live babies after one of his many botched abortions. Despite horrific allegations against Karpen for actions taken in 2012, it appears that until now, neither Texas law enforcement nor federal officials have pursued the case with any intent to punish him. What were those actions? Four women who worked at Karpen’s Houston-area abortion facilities informed Operation Rescue in 2013 that Karpen was violating the law. According to Sullenger, she received photographs of more than one baby who had been born alive that the employees charged Karpen had killed by slashing or twisting their necks.

    Saudi Arabia, Russia and the rest of OPEC “are likely this week to discuss a controlled relaxation of over-compliance with the Opec and non-Opec production-cut target,” according to Argus Media. A Gulf source familiar with Saudi thinking told Argus that a “relaxation” is a “big possibility” at the upcoming meeting in Vienna on June 22.To be clear, it would not amount to an “unwinding” or a “removal” or a “phase out” of the production limits. Such a proposal is reportedly not under consideration. Instead, OPEC has a more modest proposal in mind – simply bringing production levels back up to the stated ceiling. The discrepancy largely comes down to the catastrophic production losses in Venezuela. Output in the South American nation fell to just 1.43 million barrels per day in April, down nearly 700,000 bpd from 2016 levels. Crucially, Venezuela’s April production is 500,000 bpd below the level that it is allowed to produce (1.972 mb/d) as part of the OPEC agreement – and falling on an ongoing basis. Because of those declines, the compliance rate for OPEC on the whole shot up to 181 percent in April, according to Argus Media. The proposal under consideration for the Vienna meeting would be to allow slightly higher levels of production. Because most of the participating nations are already producing close to their maximum, additional supply would have to come from a relatively short list of nations, namely, Saudi Arabia, Russia, the UAE and Kuwait. OPEC could still keep its production limits in place, but allow spare capacity nations to add supply back to the market, but only a little bit so the collective ceiling is not breached. As Argus points out, allowing for higher levels of production from Gulf countries at the expense of Iran and Venezuela could potentially undercut cohesion among the group. Already fierce regional rivals, Iran might perceive the “relaxing” of production limits as a way for Gulf nations to take its market share. OPEC’s influence is only as powerful as the group’s willingness to work together, so future coordination could be undermined if a decision in Vienna stokes animosity between some of the cartel’s top producers. Still, with oil passing $80 per barrel and pricing risk skewed to the upside, OPEC might be compelled to add more barrels back onto the market.

    With the national average gas price continuing its trudge toward $3 a barrel, pushed by rising crude oil prices, GasBuddy is reporting that more Americans are planning stay-cations instead of traveling this summer as worries about rising gas prices intensify. According to the annual survey, only 58% of respondents said they would take a trip this summer, a 24% decrease from last year. That's the lowest number since the summer of 2014, when crude oil prices were above $100 a barrel. Asked about their reasons for delaying their plans, 39% blamed rising gas prices, compared with 19% in 2017.

    The Boers are a different culture than those who are destroying S. Africa. Australia would however be within its rights to decide either way about granting asylum but since they are currently letting in hordes of barbarians it would begin to look like anti-white racism if they didn't let in the Boers while letting in the others.

    Survivors and families of those who were affected by Project MK-Ultra, also called the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) mind control program, administered at McGill University’s Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal are preparing a class-action lawsuit against the Quebec and federal governments because of what they alleged had been done to them five decades ago. According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), more than forty Canadians for the first time gathered at a Montreal condo over the weekend to share their disturbing stories about how MK-Ultra destroyed their lives. “The government should offer an apology and there should be recognition of the injustice that was done,” says Gina Blasbalg, who unknowingly became a patient at the Allan Memorial Institute in her teens in the 1960s. Survivors Allied Against Government Abuse (SAAGA), as the group calls itself on Facebook, includes both victims and family members of Canadians who unknowingly participated in the CIA-funded brainwashing experiments under the supervision of Dr. Ewen Cameron, director of the psychiatric hospital between the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. During the length of the program, Cameron conducted “depatterning” and “psychic driving” experiments that attempted to erase a patient’s memories and even attempted to reprogram them with new thoughts. The Canadian government funded Cameron with roughly $500,000 between 1950 and 1965 — $4 million in 2018 dollars, along with sizeable funding from the CIA. Project MK-Ultra at Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal operated using a front organization called the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology. Patients started the program with relatively insignificant mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression. In many cases, Cameron tested “drugs like LSD and PCP, medically induced sleep for extended periods, and oversaw extreme forms of electroshock therapy and sensory deprivation,” explained CBC.

    It came out of his “inter-agency taskforce” at Langley... As Trump won primary after primary in 2016, a rattled John Brennan started claiming to colleagues at the CIA that Estonia’s intelligence agency had alerted him to an intercepted phone call suggesting Putin was pouring money into the Trump campaign. The tip was bogus, but Brennan bit on it with opportunistic relish. Out of Brennan’s alarmist chatter about the bogus tip came an extraordinary leak to the BBC: that Brennan had used it, along with later half-baked tips from British intelligence, as the justification to form a multi-agency spy operation (given the Orwellian designation of an “inter-agency taskforce”) on the Trump campaign, which he was running right out of CIA headquarters. The CIA was furious about the leak, but never denied the BBC’s story. To Congress earlier this year, Brennan acknowledged the existence of the group, but cast his role in it as the mere conduit of tips about Trump-Russia collusion: “It was well beyond my mandate as director of CIA to follow on any of those leads that involved U.S. persons. But I made sure that anything that was involving U.S. persons, including anything involving the individuals involved in the Trump campaign, was shared with the bureau.” But if his role had truly been passive, the “inter-agency taskforce” wouldn’t have been meeting at CIA headquarters. By keeping its discussions at Langley, Brennan could keep his finger wedged in the pie. Both before and after the FBI’s official probe began in late July 2016, Brennan was bringing together into the same room at CIA headquarters a cast of Trump haters across the Obama administration whose activities he could direct - from Peter Strzok, the FBI liaison to Brennan, to the doltish Jim Clapper, Brennan’s errand boy, to an assortment of Brennan’s buddies at the Treasury Department, Justice Department, and White House.

    In yet another sign that broader war between Israel, Syria, and Iran may be on the horizon Israel's Channel 10 has revealed in an exclusive broadcast that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently ordered all national security cabinet meetings to be held in a secure underground bunker in Jerusalem. The National Security Cabinet (NSC), also known as the "inner cabinet," is akin to the US National Security Council and convenes regularly under the authority of the prime minister in the Prime Minister's building in Jerusalem. However, according to Channel 10's Barak Ravid, who broke the story, Netanyahu made the decision out of fear of leaks related to "sensitive discussions on Syria and Iran."

    Every year more than one thousand underage Dutch girls are groomed and then blackmailed into sex slavery by young pimps with migrant backgrounds, an investigation has revealed. With gifts, drink, and drugs, so-called ‘loverboys’ will seduce a girl into agreeing to become his sex partner before taking pictures or video footage of the encounter which will then be used as leverage to force her into prostitution, Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad reports. “These men are mostly Moroccans, Turks, Caribbeans, and Roma. The lion’s share of them have a migrant background,” said Gideon van Aartsen from Watch Nederland, an initiative which coordinates with the nation’s police on efforts to fight child sexual exploitation (CSE). He told the newspaper that selling sex with schoolgirls is a “lucrative trade” that can earn “up to 800 euros a day on a girl” for ‘loverboys’, most of whom are part of larger networks that are also involved in trafficking illegal drugs and weapons.

    Former President Obama could still be impeached if evidence emerges that he unlawfully ordered the FBI to spy on the Trump campaign, says Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “If there is anyone who needs to be on the dock, it would be President Obama,” he said in an interview Monday with WND. “The very nature of the activity suggests President Obama would have been advised and approved of the counter-intelligence/spy operation against candidate Trump.” Fitton believes having the Inspector General expanding its investigation to look into spying abuses within the FBI is a good first step, but not sufficient to solve the systemic corruption within the Deep State. “But the IG is only one tool for investigation, and Judicial Watch will continue its investigations of this deep state conspiracy, and Congress also has to keep up the pressure,” Fitton said. “We can’t rely on internal IG investigations to ferret out abuse here. This is more significant. We need immediate accountability, as best as we are able.” Fitton brought up the prospect of Obama impeachment on Twitter Sunday to point out that amid a climate of impeachment fervor against President Trump in Washington, the actual evidence suggests that Obama’s potentially illegal activities warrant impeachment more than anything Trump has done. Obama, btw, can still be impeached. https://t.co/JsIU9bhnnJ

    Polling by Reuters shows that Republicans are now six points ahead of Democrats in the race for the U.S. Congress, a remarkable turnaround given that they were once as much as 16 points behind. The numbers show that when registered voters are asked, “If the election for U.S. Congress were held today, would you vote for the Democratic candidate or the Republican candidate in your district where you live?” the GOP comes out on top. 40.7 per cent of respondents said they would vote for a Republican, with 34.5 per cent saying they would vote for a Democrat. The numbers are huge because they completely contradict the narrative that Democrats were set to easily take the House in a “blue wave”. As recently as December, a CNN poll had Democrats 16 points ahead, a lead that has now been utterly obliterated. The results point to the fact that Americans are very happy with how President Trump has reinvigorated the economy. Nearly two out of three Americans polled by CBS say the economy is either “very good” or “somewhat good.” Dilbert creator Scott Adams offered wry commentary on the Congressional poll, tweeting, “On the plus side, Democrats still have 100% support from MS-13 and Iran.”

    The Internal Revenue Service hasn’t accurately cataloged all the components of its highest value hardware and software systems and doesn’t have a clear count of who has privileged access to those systems, according to an audit released Monday. The IRS also likely isn’t patching software vulnerabilities on its highest value assets within the 30-day timeframe required for federal agencies, according to the audit from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. Because the agency doesn’t maintain historical data about patching, however, it’s difficult to say for certain how long vulnerabilities are going unpatched, the audit states. The term “high-value assets,” as used by federal cybersecurity professionals, essentially refers to software and hardware systems that contain the most sensitive information, including personally identifiable information about taxpayers or employees.

    A coalition of more than 100 conservatives sent a letter to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Monday urging him to replace outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan. “There must be a real race for Speaker of the House. Now. No backroom deals. A real race, starting this spring, to make every incumbent and candidate commit on the record, as a campaign issue, whether they’ll vote to save the Swamp or drain it,” the letter reads. “America needs you to declare yourself as a candidate for Speaker at once. We write to you on behalf of millions of Americans who want Congress to Drain the Swamp.” “The present House Republican leadership has failed. It is part of the problem. You are the solution. This is your moment. We pray you will seize it, knowing that if you do, we will do everything we can to help you succeed,” the letter continues.

    On Friday the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party announced that they have taken out a lawsuit against chancellor Angela Merkel over her decision to open Germany’s borders to refugees in 2015. Members of the AfD motivated the party’s action against Merkel in a press conference: “The Federal Government is bound by law and order. This is completely clear; this is the division of power. The Federal Government cannot say, now we find that one law is convenient, and the other less convenient. “No, there’s no dictator chancelloress; she cannot exist, according to the law. The chancellor has to follow law and order, and essential decisions, essential decisions that concern our community, have to be decided in the Parliament.” https://voiceofeurope.com/2018/05/afd-sues-merkel-over-migrant-crisis-the-chancellor-cant-act-like-a-dictator/

    Lake Worth, Florida falsely sent out a “zombie alert” during a power outage causing some concern among residents. The Lake Worth community Facebook page claims the message was “unintended.” The message was sent during a power outage at about 1:45 a.m., but it contained the additional warning of a “zombie alert for Lake Worth and Terminus,” potentially referencing the city in the zombie TV show “The Walking Dead.” The notice declared: “There are now far less than seven-thousand-three-hundred-eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity.” Lake Worth’s announcement was apologized for in their Facebook post. “We are looking into reports that the system mentioned zombies,” said Ben Kerr, the city’s public information officer, in the post. “I want to reiterate that Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently and apologize for the system message.” According to the post,Kerr said 7,880 customers were affected and that power was restored within only 27 minutes.

    The Swedish government has begun sending all 4.8m of the country’s households a public information leaflet telling the population, for the first time in more than half a century, what to do in the event of a war. Om krisen eller kriget kommer (If crisis or war comes) explains how people can secure basic needs such as food, water and heat, what warning signals mean, where to find bomb shelters and how to contribute to Sweden’s “total defence”. The 20-page pamphlet, illustrated with pictures of sirens, warplanes and families fleeing their homes, also prepares the population for dangers such as cyber and terror attacks and climate change, and includes a page on identifying fake news. “Although Sweden is safer than many other countries, there are still threats to our security and independence,” the brochure says. “If you are prepared, you are contributing to improving the ability of the country to cope with a major strain.” Similar leaflets were first distributed in neutral Sweden in 1943, at the height of the second world war. Updates were issued regularly to the general public until 1961, and then to local and national government officials until 1991.

    The Constitution itself forbade the states from violating certain rights: A1S10 No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility. Either government can be limited or it can't, the feds should be limited to protecting your basic rights and any states that don't like it should leave or be expelled.
