Not really. All photos are taken by me, since I don't have any friends, but I'm not usually the principal focus thereof so much as the weapons, or the equipment, or my cat (who likes to climb me like a tree and hang out on my shoulder like a parrot), or my BMW, et cetera. Truth be told, as time goes on, I've increasingly found that my only interest in people is avoiding them to the greatest practicable extent.

Apparently I actually am kind of adorable, though, for whatever that's worth.

>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 that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

>The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner 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.

>The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency.

>“This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

It'd be hilarious if the NFL sued the government for infringing on the first amendment rights of it's players, since the NFL has a (frankly) absurd amount of control over what it's players can and can't say, and can in fact force them to show up and speak when they don't want to.

>Following wide outrage in Icelandic society after it was revealed yesterday that the Minister of the Interior had lied to Parliament and kept information from the public and that the Prime Minister had also kept information from the public, the junior coalition partner, the centrist Bright Future, has announced it will no longer support the government. The Prime Minister has yet to appear publicly.

>Bright Future made the decision to withdraw from the coalition government at a meeting yesterday evening. The announcement was made shortly after midnight. At the heart of the story is fallout from a child abuse scandal which had ensnared the father of the Prime Minister, Benedikt Sveinsson. Mass protests have been announced in front of the house of parliament today afternoon at 16:00.

>The reason Bright Future has withdrawn its support for the government is that yesterday the public learned that the father of the Prime Minister, Benedikt Sveinsson, one of the wealthiest men in Iceland, had written a letter on behalf of Hjalti Sigurjón Hauksson, the most notorious child molesters to be sentenced in Icelandic court, asking for his full pardon and that his criminal record to be expunged and "honor restored".

>In Iceland criminals can apply for a full pardon five years after they have served their sentence. An applicant for pardon must present letters from two "respected and well known people" vouching for their changed and good character. The pardon application is approved by the Ministry of the Interior, then reviewed by a parliamentary committee and finally signed by the President of Iceland.

>The case of two of Iceland's most notorious child molesters who received a full pardon this summer has rattled Icelandic society. The Icelandic public and media have spent much of summer discussing the two cases and the horrifying world of violence and abuse they revealed.

He had systematically groomed dozens of young girls in difficult social circumstances whom he had singled out as potential victims.

>The records contained the official testimony from Colonel R.S. Sarkisov and Colonel V. Nadaraia, two of Beria's most senior NKVD bodyguards. They stated that on warm nights during the war years, Beria was often driven slowly through the streets of Moscow in his armored Packard limousine. He would point out young women to be detained and escorted to his mansion where wine and a feast awaited them. After dining, Beria would take the women into his soundproofed office and rape them. Beria's bodyguards reported that their orders included handing each victim a flower bouquet as she left Beria's house. The implication was that to accept made it consensual; refusal would mean arrest. In one incident his chief bodyguard, Sarkisov, reported that a woman who had been brought to Beria rejected his advances and ran out of his office; Sarkisov mistakenly handed her the flowers anyway prompting the enraged Beria to declare "Now it's not a bouquet, it's a wreath! May it rot on your grave!" The woman was arrested by the NKVD the next day.

>Beria's sexually predatory nature was well-known to the Politburo, and though Stalin took an indulgent viewpoint (considering Beria's wartime importance), he said, "I don't trust Beria." In one instance when Stalin learned his daughter was alone with Beria at his house, he telephoned her and told her to leave immediately. When Beria complimented Alexander Poskrebyshev's daughter on her beauty, Poskrebyshev quickly pulled her aside and instructed her, "Don't ever accept a lift from Beria." After taking an interest in Marshal Kliment Voroshilov's daughter-in-law during a party at their summer dacha, Beria shadowed their car closely all the way back to the Kremlin terrifying Voroshilov's wife.

>The U.S. military launched approximately 50 cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield late on Thursday, in the first direct American assault on the government of President Bashar al-Assad since that country’s civil war began six years ago.

>The operation, which the Trump administration authorized in retaliation for a chemical attack killing scores of civilians this week, dramatically expands U.S. military involvement in Syria and exposes the United States to heightened risk of direct confrontation with Russia and Iran, both backing Assad in his attempt to crush his opposition.

>President Trump said the strike was in the “vital national security interest” of the United States and called on “all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria. And also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.”

>“We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world,” he continued. “We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed and we hope that as long as America stands for justice then peace and harmony will in the end prevail.”

>The missiles were launched from two Navy destroyers — the USS Ross and USS Porter — in the eastern Mediterranean. They struck an airbase called Shayrat in Homs province, which is the site from which the planes that conducted the chemical attack in Idlib are believed to have originated. The targets included the runway as well as aircraft, hangars and fuel.

And I mean it sure is pretty interesting that the Nazis autistically kept detailed records for the 9 million or so people they killed over 4 years in industrial death camps during the Holocaust, but for this alleged second holocaust of Russians (currently at elventy billion dead, since Russia is the most victimized country ever) there's no records at all.

And similarly, it sure is interesting how Nazi propaganda hits all the same "degenerate liberals!" "gays should be killed!" "jews are evil!" "woman's place is in the home" talking points that the Soviet government supported.

And of course one wonders if how Germany was retreating constantly after the Battle of Moscow, how they managed to "capture" new vehicles like T-34-85s or IS-2s.

Not the second, but the first. It is expectable that Nazi Alliance puppets can not keep any "records" on Russian casualties since they don't treat them as human.

>Nazi propaganda
Nazi propaganda has clear and distinct roots in British and American ideologies of imperialism, colonialism, sectarian movements and white supremacy. Even after almost century after the war, they can't entirely get rid of those old habits.

Remind us again who created the Protocols of the Elders of Zion? Or is antisemitism a Traditional Russian Value?

As to imperialism and colonialism, one needs only to look at Tsarist records of the colonization of Siberia and Alaska to find typical colonial behavior that continued well into the Soviet period. For example the Soviet government continued to close and level native villages and separate children from their families well into the 1980s because they were "barbarians" and needed to become proper socialist slaves.

I would give some time to that for my own curiosity's sake, but I suppose I don't need to. Recent events in Syria still illustrate more than enough. Six years of unrelenting bombardment and support of satanic cults (Muslims only in their name) left the country in ruin and provoked mass migrations, atrocities, civil unrest and breakup of international relations. In comparison, one year of combined areal assault and effort on the ground resulted in destruction of most capable forces of ISIL and inevitable end of terrorist cause.

It has come to the point where some NATO members suggest that Turkey should be kicked from the alliance. 16 years of "War on Terror" left the world with more terrorists then ever and gave birth to terrorist "state". If I was a historian from Cold War period, I would simply assume that it's main purpose of it is either sabotaged by all parties involved, or it was designed to be a failure since the beginning.

>The USS Fitzgerald was back at its home port in Yokosuka Naval Base south of Tokyo by sunset Saturday, its crew lined up on deck. The Philippine-flagged container ship was berthed at Tokyo's Oi wharf, where officials began questioning crew members about the cause of the nighttime crash.
...
>The U.S. 7th Fleet said in a statement that the crash damaged two berthing spaces, a machinery room and the radio room. Most of the more than 200 sailors aboard would have been asleep in their berths at the time of the pre-dawn crash.

>Water was being pumped out of flooded areas and it was unclear how long it would take to get into the crushed mid-right side of the ship once it was at the pier in Yokosuka, the statement said.
...
>The Japanese coast guard said it received an emergency call from the container ship, the ACX Crystal, reporting the collision at around 2:20 a.m. (1720 GMT Friday). It was questioning crew members of the ACX Crystal, which is operated by the Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen K.K., and was treating the incident as a case of possible professional negligence, said Masayuki Obara, a regional coast guard official.

>The ACX Crystal weighs 29,060 tons and is 222 meters (730 feet) long, the coast guard said, much larger than the 8,315-ton Navy destroyer. The container ship's left bow was dented and scraped, but it did not appear to have sustained any major structural damage.

>Nippon Yusen said all of the ACX Crystal's 20-member Filipino crew members were safe.

>Cantwell's attorney is Elmer Woodard, who appeared in court wearing an early-1800s-style red waistcoat with gold buttons, bowtie, white muttonchop whiskers, black velcro shoes, and a a 1910s-style straw boater hat. Cantwell said Woodard was his fourth choice for legal counsel after three other lawyers declined to take his case. (Woodard previously attempted to defend a client accused of sexual assault by a 15-year-old girl by claiming that the man’s sleepwalking caused him to rape her.)

>Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Tracci asked Judge Sheryl Higgins to allow him to introduce as evidence videos of Cantwell making violent statements, including some of his closing words in the Vice documentary: “I think [Heather Heyer’s death] was more than justified... I think that a lot more people are gonna die before we’re done here, frankly.”

>Woodard objected, claiming that videos of his own client speaking were hearsay evidence.

>“How is it hearsay when it’s your client’s own words?" Higgins replied, overruling Woodard’s objection.

>Woodard then offered what he said was a quote by comedian Jackie Mason, saying that “take my wife, please"” was obviously not intended as a literal desire to kill or abandon a woman (the quote is actually from Henny Youngman). He compared Cantwell’s hate-filled monologues against Jews, blacks, Muslims, and other minorities on his podcasts to Mason.

>Woodard said it was all a “shock jock” act.

>But when Tracci asked Cantwell to describe what he does for a living, he answered: “I do a racist podcast.”

Many Nazis and other avowed racists over the last few decades have had similar problems. And it IS a problem. So much of a problem is this lack of competent defense, that the one notable exception, the Nazis that descended upon Skokie Illinois, were defended by none other than the ACLU. Even avowed racists and Nazis deserve a fair shake before our justice system, same as everyone. As hard as it is for people to do, a defendant's ideology and opinion should be divorced, as much as possible, from their actions and the illegality of same. A good example would be the Subway Vigilante, Bernhard Goetz of New York City. It should be noted that, despite the media moniker, Goetz was no vigilante. Despite carrying a .357, he was not seeking out criminals to punish when four young men pulled sharpened screwdrivers on him. Now Goetz, by several accounts, was a racist man, having said unsavory things before and after this incident (in New York, such a man would be called "A New Yorker"). The prosecution made the case that Goetz was a racist aggressor against four black victims (make no mistake however. Despite the race rhetoric, their true aim was to strongly discourage anyone in NYC from defending themselves with a firearm). The jury successfully saw past this, and judged the defendant solely on his actions. He was convicted of unlawfully carrying the gun; that was unavoidable. However, they acquitted him of the various assault and attempted murder charges, and rightly so, as he was very clearly a victim defending himself against assault. His personal views made that no less so.
Fuck Christopher Cantwell. He is a cunt. I wish him disappointment and frustration in his endeavors. I also wish him good luck at his trial. There's a likelihood that his prosecution is ideologically motivated. I hope the jury can work past a desire to stick it to a racist, and acquit the man. If they choose to convict, I hope it is because of well established facts, or a logical line of argument that meets the burden of proof. Public opinion and social norms are such fickle things. Do not let the state get away with extrajudicial punishment just because it feels right. Whatever you sanction the government to do unto a group of undesirables, assume it will be done unto you in a decade.

There are a lot of racists who will donate a lot of money to somebody who says racist stuff they agree with. Remember what LBJ said?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/09/06/rush-limbaughs-dangerous-suggestion-that-hurricane-irma-is-fake-news/

I wrote on Wednesday about Rush Limbaugh's claim that the media is manufacturing unwarranted panic about Hurricane Irma as part of a plot to hype climate change, boost ratings and increase advertising revenue from businesses that stand to make money off purchases of batteries and bottled water.

Limbaugh then accused The Washington Post and other news outlets of twisting his words while simultaneously doubling down on his conspiracy theory on Thursday.

“I explained how severe weather events are opportunities for big ratings boosts in the media and explained how it happens,” he said. “I explained how severe weather events impact retailers and how some retailers are smart enough to coordinate advertising with television stations. It happens!”

Limbaugh said something else on Thursday: He indicated he is evacuating his Palm Beach mansion, from which he broadcasts daily, for "parts unknown."

“May as well go ahead and announce this,” he said. “I'm not going to get into details because of the security nature of things, but it turns out that we will not be able to do the program here tomorrow. ... We'll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown. So we'll be back on Monday. It's just that tomorrow is going to be problematic. Tomorrow it would be, I think, legally impossible for us to originate the program out of here.”

Limbaugh presented the departure as more of an inconvenience than a proper response to imminent danger.

“You know, I had to cancel a bunch of stuff,” he said. “I was going to go to a private movie screening this afternoon, and I had a bunch of stuff to do tonight, and now that's all blown to smithereens.”

I happen to listen to the original show about how the media and local store help each other when there is a natural disaster and the fake news just eats it up. It's like they can't help themselves.

He did say if you water is running still fill what ever container of bathtub full of clean tap water, you don't need to buy bottled water.

https://www.wired.com/story/hackers-gain-switch-flipping-access-to-us-power-systems/

IN AN ERA of hacker attacks on critical infrastructure, even a run-of-the-mill malware infection on an electric utility’s network is enough to raise alarm bells. But the latest collection of power grid penetrations went far deeper: Security firm Symantec is warning that a series of recent hacker attacks not only compromised energy companies in the US and Europe but also resulted in the intruders gaining hands-on access to power grid operations—enough control that they could have induced blackouts on American soil at will.
Symantec on Wednesday revealed a new campaign of attacks by a group it is calling Dragonfly 2.0, which it says targeted dozens of energy companies in the spring and summer of this year. In more than 20 cases, Symantec says the hackers successfully gained access to the target companies’ networks. And at a handful of US power firms and at least one company in Turkey—none of which Symantec will name—their forensic analysis found that the hackers obtained what they call operational access: control of the interfaces power company engineers use to send actual commands to equipment like circuit breakers, giving them the ability to stop the flow of electricity into US homes and businesses.

Reminds me of a great DEFCON talk from a couple years ago where these researchers found an entire French dam hooked up to the internet, unsecured.

Here we go, found it. Wasn't DEFCON but another convention. I'm not gonna do "highlights include" because I want to preserve the element of surprise. But they repeatedly run across examples of a script kiddie trying the same attacks.

>intruders gaining hands-on access to power grid operations
Far as I know, "modern" industrial applications use straight Ethernet/RS485 connections for almost everything above simplest hardwired switches and buttons. Not only that, there are also Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and GPRS devices, albeit less popular, and a ton of more sophisticated systems. But the simplest and most stupid thing you can do to make yourself vulnerable is to connect them to Internet without some sort of firewall.

Even a nuclear plant has to be equipped with those protocols, but they are isolated on physical level. If you allow to connect the critical systems in secure network to some random internet cable, you'd probably get sentenced for criminal negligence and ruin your reputation. There's no need to lookout for mysterious hacker groups, you need to watch out for future Darwin award nominees.

Funny how the Taliban and ISIS keep ending up with brand new Russian-made weapons that don't have any serial numbers on them.

>Russia created modern Islamic terrorism
And Taliban. And Islam. And terrorism. Also it is historically accurate to say Russia created a wheel and a gun. Russia also created propaganda and politics. Also oil and oil market are Russia's inventions - terrorism can not function without oil.

>Russian-made weapons that don't have any serial numbers on them
Basically Russia created all weapons on Earth as well. Also Russia created serial numbers. How can Americans keep talking about these numbers if they don't own them?

American liars will always say that they are not the sponsors of terrorism and do not supply any terrorists with Russian weapons, but the truth is that they've stolen everything from Russia and try to use it against Russia all the time.
