    The passage of the defense spending portion of the Omnibus bill ultimately means there will be increased demand for U.S. steel and aluminum within new defense equipment. The contracts within the procurement process will predictably require the use of U.S. parts. Add the increase in defense spending with the pending global tariffs on steel imports, and the environment is created for foreign investment in domestic steel and metal manufacturing…. Then add into the mix the geopolitical economic relationship developed between India’s Prime Minister Modi and President Trump… And you discover the backdrop for this announcement from India owned JSW Steel:

    There are so many threads of information surrounding the 2016 operation to conduct political surveillance on the Trump campaign by various officials and offices within corrupt structures of government it’s easy to get lost. However, if we take all the various bits of information and place them together a less confusing picture emerges.

    When it ended with the United States’ first gold in the sport at about 4:15 a.m. Eastern (6:15 p.m. in Korea), more than 77,000 people were streaming the event through NBC’s Olympics website. How many were watching on television on NBCSN? It ended so late that data will not be available until Sunday for the 3 to 4:15 a.m. ET portion of the telecast. But an average of 1.58 million viewers were watching from 1:30 to 3 a.m., a remarkable figure given the hour, the sport and the channel.

    Amazon Go allows customers to grab items and just walk out without stopping to pay. =============================================== Amazon’s store of the future has been five years in the making. But the unveiling is just about here. Amazon Go, the company’s first brick-and-mortar convenience store, will open to the public on Monday on the ground floor of Amazon’s new headquarters on Seventh Avenue in Seattle.

    Just received an email from Twitter (see below) about "banning Russian propaganda" accounts. Not sure if this is legit, a hoax or phishing scam. Has anyone else received this email? I have not clicked on any links about a "blog". If this is legit, I sense a veiled threat when they mention that I've either visited, liked or retweeted these supposed "Russian tweets". It's as though they've "put me on notice" and they're documenting people.

    "The only operating rare earth mine in the United States sends all of their valuable resources to China for processing. Congress does not know this. They think this [mining] company is supplying the U.S. value chain, [and] is supplying the military. It is in-fact, the opposite. They are part of the Chinese monopoly. They're taking powder and shipping it to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy

  • Not So Fast, Why Palin Could Win on Appeal Against The New York Times

    Law Newz ^ | 8-29-2017 | Robert Barnes
    Two reasons Palin may win on appeal. First, the Judge appears to contradict himself on a critical issue of law. Second, the Judge appears to engage in weighing the evidence, rather than interpreting the evidence in every means favorable to Palin, often denying her the benefit of the doubt while repeatedly extending it to The New York Times, the behemoth newspaper who could do a lot more damage to a judge’s reputation than public figure Palin. (Fair, or unfair, more than a few counsel believe the New York Times enjoys an unfair advantage in its backyard because of its power...

    Good morning, I’m still reporting on: Sen. Flake Losing to Dr Kelli Ward, 1770 Synopsis: Never-Trumper Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona will face a significant primary challenge one year from yesterday, Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018. Flake, who has low popularity in Arizona due to his very liberal immigration stance as well as his opposition to all things Trump, is now being walloped in the latest poll by osteopath Kelli Ward. In a sampling of 500 likely Republican households by JMC analytics, Flake trailed Dr. Ward by a 26-point margin – 21 to 47 for Ward with 29% undecided. An astounding...

    Good morning, I’m still reporting on: Mueller Probe Going Nowhere, 1744 Synopsis: According to Alexander Mercouris writing in his blog called “The Duran”, the so-called investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller is going nowhere – so nowhere that investigators – once inside the investigation – find out how inconsequential are the scraps of evidence being investigated – they take out private insurance against the risk of lawsuits on down the line.

    Thorium is an abundant material currently disposed of as waste. It is found in coal ash piles and mine tailings. A single Rare Earths mine could produce enough Thorium byproduct to power the entire planet. To do so requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kinds we use today. Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses extremely stable molten salts.
