Its always an anonymous source with these people and we are just supposed to trust them.

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

The post refers to it self and says democracy dies in the darkness. Well they are the laser pointer that makes the cats go the other way. They way they do this is not by investigative journalism but by  innuendo and phony sources that we never know. If these people have information on treason then they should come forward but they never do like Snowden and so many others. No they want to protect their job we are told.

Through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

 

Wow this former US official sounds like a real  stand up guy. You can imagine how worried this person must be to give out information that should be classified about what the president told the Russians. Who has the right to make an entire accusation out of unknown sources and innuendo? The very conversation its self is classified.

 

It is all kind of shocking,” said a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials. “Trump seems to be very reckless and doesn’t grasp the gravity of the things he’s dealing with, especially when it comes to intelligence and national security. And it’s all clouded because of this problem he has with Russia.”

 

“Everyone knows this stream is very sensitive, and the idea of sharing it at this level of granularity with the Russians is troubling,” said a former senior U.S. counterterrorism official who also worked closely with members of the Trump national security team. He and others spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the subject.

So sensitive but they could not wait to tell the post? This is bull shit

“I’m sure Kislyak was able to fire off a good cable back to the Kremlin with all the details” he gleaned from Trump, said the former U.S. official who handled intelligence on Russia.

The White House readout of the meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak made no mention of the discussion of a terrorist threat.

 

So we are just to supposed to swallow this bull shit whole. Here is a  whole page of disinfo graphics to make it seem more real. They promise to update them when they get actual real information! They promise.

Hubris of a level here to fore unseen

The very idea that we are investigating Russian hacking during a week that has seen the biggest hack ever that actually is a leaked US cyber weapon is the highest of hypocrisy in a world of lies nine miles deep. It shows that the so called defense intelligence agencies are actually offensive and that they are a greater danger to this world than all of the terrorists combined. Don’t forget we also proliferated atomic weapons and look where that has us today.

Out of touch city dwellers predict end of private autos.

(this article points out the out of touch nature of city dwellers. They think everyone’s life is like theirs. This is far from true. They have no idea that rural people live far away from anything and Buses and public transportation make no sense here. It’s 70 miles to the nearest Walmart here as an example and the nearest near by town is 24 miles away. How do they think Ranchers and Farmers and oil workers will get to their jobs? No one could live out here if we didn’t have cars you dopes. You  would not have vegetables or hamburgers you morons? All of the solar farms and wind farms are also in flyover country so this is just stupid on every level. ~ Radics)

By 2030, you probably won’t own a car, but you may get a free trip with your morning coffee. Transport-As-A-Service will use only electric vehicles and will upend two trillion-dollar industries. It’s the death spiral for cars.

A major new report predicts that by 2030, the overwhelming majority of consumers will no longer own a car – instead they will use on-demand electric autonomous vehicles.

By 2030, within 10 years of regulatory approval of autonomous electric vehicles (A-EVs), the report says, 95 per cent of all US passenger miles traveled will be served by on-demand, autonomous, electric vehicles that will be owned by fleets rather than individuals.

The provision of this service may come virtually free as part of another offering, or a corporate sponsorship. Imagine, for instance, paying a token sum for a ride into town after buying a latte for $4.50. Or getting a free ride because the local government has decided to make transport easier.

TAAS choice

The report, by RethinkX, an independent think tank that focuses on technology-driven disruption and its implications across society, says this stunning and radical will be driven entirely by economics, and will overcome the current desire for individual car ownership, starting first in the big cities and then spreading to the suburbs and regional areas.

This disruption will have enormous implications across the transportation and oil industries, decimating entire portions of their value chains, causing oil demand and prices to plummet, and destroying trillions of dollars in investor value, not to mention the value of used cars.

At the same time it will create trillions of dollars in new business opportunities, consumer surplus and GDP growth.

His early forecasts for the enormous uptake of solar where considered crazy, but were proved right, and he has since said that new technologies will make coal, oil and gas all but redundant by 2030).

He says while the report focuses on the US, the forecasts are valid for Australia too, because the transportation industry is global. And he warns that the car you buy now may well be your last.

“This is a global technology disruption. So yes, this applies to Australia,” Seba tells RenewEconomy. “And this is going to happen despite governments, not because of governments.
