Did the Obama administration used intelligence data for political purposes? Maybe they should have just taken the election loss and not brought all of this up after all?
A presidential spokesperson said that they might have used microwaves to spy on Trump and the left and the MSM are trending that she is a fool for saying this. I am tired of having to take up for Trump and his spokesmen. I don’t like them. Why does the media have to lie about everything? About things they don’t know about? Microwaves have been used in information gathering and so have lasers so these people are mocking her and they didn’t even look it up. What is she supposed to brief you on a secret program so you can freak out on that too?
Facebook is supposed to be protecting the world from fake news but when the fake news comes from CNBC they swallow it hook line and sinker. I was in the military in electronic warfare and I can tell you it is entirely possible and has been done routinely.
Microwave eavesdropping has a long and clandestine history. And there’s an odd connection between music and microwave eavesdropping. Mention the name Leon Theremin and many people will immediately think of the musical instrument bearing his name. Born Lev Sergeyevich Termen, his contributions to the former Soviet Union spanned the history of the Soviet Union from the original Bolshevik Revolution to the collapse of the USSR.
Termen was a mathematics prodigy who was drawn into the emerging field of electronics. Termen came across the basic principle for one of the first electronic musical instruments while working on television. The theremin (Termen called it an “etherophone”) produced music with modulated static. Players used two antennae, one for pitch and one for volume, producing musical tones by waving their hands around the antennae. Skilled musicians reportedly could recreate the sounds of many existing instruments.
On one hand I could care less that some rich person got shafted like we always do but on the other this made no sense to me from a marketing stand point because of course the publicity from her father should make sales go up. I am always perplexed when I see a corporation not acting in its own self interest. It shows me there is some madness in it’s leader ship, so this never made sense to me anyway. So just as predicted the sales are in record territory and a lot of people lied to the public about why they were doing this? Why didn’t they say, “we just don’t like this bitch!” Also the fact that they were going to lose money or it was an economic decision is #fakenews
Ivanka Trump’s eponymous women’s fashion line is reporting record sales figures despite calls for a boycott and controversies surrounding President Trump.“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand,” Abigail Klem, the president of the Ivanka Trump fashion brand, tells Refinery29 in an interview published Tuesday. “For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”The news of a sales surge comes after Nordstrom announced in early February that it would no longer carry the 35-year-old’s clothing and accessories, citing poor product sales. The move caused President Trump to tweet shortly after the announcement that his daughter was being “treated so unfairly” by the luxury department store giant.Also last month, Neiman Marcus stopped carrying the first daughter’s jewelry line on its website, and employees of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores were instructed to throw away any signage advertising her wares.The Office of Government Ethics recommended disciplinary action against White House adviser Kellyanne Conway after she urged viewers to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff” during a February interview on “Fox & Friends.”A campaign called Grab Your Wallet, which is critical of the Trump administration, asked shoppers to boycott retailers with any Ivanka or Donald Trump-branded products.
The more people and the media talk about Trump, the less time they have to talk about Fukashima. The half life of a president is four years. The half life of strontium is forever as far as we are concerned. Chernobyl is not even a close comparison and at least they did something to contain that and it wasn’t next to the sea. These people have no plan to deal with this. Bags of radio active waste are piled high and the near by hill sides are covered with tanks full of highly radio active water. Trump can’t compare to this nightmare and it is surely a scheme to lower the population of the earth if the leaders of the world and the media continue to ignore this global issue that is far more important than warming temps.
HRC emails get leaked and the fake stream media doesn’t want to talk about the content and only wants to talk about who leaked the info. Trump gets leaked by the Deep State and the fake stream media doesn’t want to talk about who did it and doesn’t care. They also will not reveal the sources and we can’t read the content of the call. This is why they are so hated. They not only don’t do their jobs they obscure the truth and make every issue a watergate as if they will get the people back on their side when they overthrow Trump.
(ZHE) Concerns about a potential, and so far unsubstantiated, nuclear “incident,” reportedly in the vicinity of the Arctic circle, spread in the past week after trace amounts of radioactive Iodine-131 of unknown origin were detected in January over large areas in Europe according to a report by the Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety, the French national public expert in nuclear and radiological risks. Since the isotope has a half-life of only eight days, the detection is an indication of a rather recent release. As the Barents Observer adds, “where the radioactivity is coming from is still a mystery.”The air filter station at Svanhovd – located a few hundred meters from Norway’s border to Russia’s Kola Peninsula in the north – was the first to measure small amounts of the radioactive Ionide-131 in the second week of January. Shortly thereafter, the same Iodine-131 isotope was measured in Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland. Within the next two weeks, traces of radioactivity, although in tiny amounts, were measured in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain.
But No Explanation Where The Radiation Came From
Finnish authorities also underscores that the levels measured are far from concentrations that could have any effect on human health. Neither STUK, nor IRSN speculate in the origin of the released Iodine-131.
Astrid Liland can’t either explain the origin of the radioactivity. “It was rough weather in the period when the measurements were made, so we can’t trace the release back to a particular location. Measurements from several places in Europe might indicate it comes from Eastern Europe,” Liland explains. “Increased levels of radioactive iodine in air were made in northern-Norway, northern-Finland and Poland in week two, and in other European countries the following two weeks, Astrid Liland says.”
As the Barents Observers adds, Iodine-131 in the air could come from an incident with a nuclear reactor. The isotope is also widely used in medicine and for that purpose; many countries around the globe produce it.
All operators of nuclear reactors or institutions using Iodine-131 for medical purposes have detectors for external releases of radioactivity. In other words, as the Observer concludes, “Someone out there knows why the radioactivity was spread over larger areas of Europe.”
Nuclear installations in northwastern Europe, were the radioactivity was first discovered, includes nuclear power plants in Finland, Sweden and Russia, in addition to nuclear powered vessels on Russia’s Kola Peninsula and White Sea area. The source could as well come from even further away installations.
Bill Maher and Milo Yiannopoulos had their controversial showdown on HBO’s Real Time on Friday night, though there were fewer sparks than some had expected.The liberal talk show host and conservative Breitbart editor tried to find common ground during an 11-minute discussion (full video below), which made national headlines earlier this week after previously scheduled Real Time guest The Intercept co-founder Jeremy Scahill dropped out of the show to protest Yiannopoulos’ booking.Maher and Yiannopoulos seemed to agree most when it came to the importance of comedy in general.“The reason [liberals] want to police humor is they can’t control it — because the one thing all authoritarians hate is the sound of laughter,” Yiannopoulos said.“And also because when people laugh they know it’s true,” Maher agreed. “… You are so helped by the fact that liberals always take the bait.”“Nothing annoys people like the truth,” Yiannopoulos concurred. “Policing humor for racism and sexism is utterly wrongheaded. Not because normally it’s not there, but because that’s how we build bridges and not how we break them.”
Here is the part I don’t get
“Yet Yiannopoulos made blatant sexist comments during the interview, criticizing Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman as people who “used to be funny before they contracted feminism.”
How is that Sexist? Because feminism is political and not some kind of thing that all women share. To make a comment about all women would be sexist since they are not monolithic and that would be stereotyping.
