Standing at a distance, OPEC's agreement looks fragile at best, unenforceable at worst. Translation: Oil prices are likely to continue to decline over time.
The establishment media is again being accused of pumping out “fake news,” this time for radically distorting the meaning and context of recent “climate change” comments made by President-elect Donald Trump. In an interview with the New York Times, Trump made clear that he was still skeptical of the increasingly discredited man-made global-warming theory, as well as the United Nations schemes supposedly aimed at stopping the alleged warming. The establishment press, though, dishonestly reported the comments as if the president-elect had betrayed his supporters and come out of the closet as a full-blown global-warming theorist in favor of the very UN “climate” regime he vowed to “cancel” on the campaign trail. In reality, despite expressing more nuance, he did no such thing.
With the Obama era coming to a close and climate skeptic Donald Trump coming to power, the murderous dictatorship in mainland China is reportedly taking on Obama's role as chief promoter of the UN climate agenda. The irony, of course, is that Trump has previously argued that the man-made global-warming theory was a “hoax” created by the Communist Chinese regime to cripple American manufacturing. He has also vowed to "cancel" the United Nations "climate change" regime.
Without question, undermining the U.S. economy and boosting China's is one goal among many shared by Beijing, the UN, many UN member regimes, and the establishment-backed “climate” machine. But there is even more to the dangerous agenda, and Americans are not out of danger from the UN-Beijing-Obama scheming just yet.
To say that Facebook has a spotty record where privacy and censorship are concerned would be an understatement. While the social media giant has — at times — resisted the surveillance apparatus of the NSA and other U.S. government, it has — on other occasions — gone out of its way to help build the culture of surveillance on which the surveillance state rests. Now, for the sake of gaining official access to China, Mark Zuckerberg’s company has developed tools to allow the Communist Chinese government unrestrained censorship of Facebook posts.
A climate-change skeptic delivered a 44-page report debunking many of the alarmists' claims to the 2016 UN Climate Conference in Morocco.
Never wanting to miss an opportunity, radicals have descended on Cannon Ball, South Dakota, to protest against completion of the Dakota Access crude oil pipeline.
FacioMetrics, Facebook's new facial recognition software, was designed to detect emotion and depression.
The address 33 Thomas Street in Lower Manhattan — less than a mile from the New York Stock Exchange — is a strange-looking structure (shown). The dark gray skyscraper has 29 floors above ground and three basement levels. It has exactly zero windows and is not illuminated at night. The building — known as the “Long Lines Building” — is owned by AT&T. It is also code-named TITANPOINTE and is a major hub of NSA surveillance, with equipment and whole portions of the building dedicated to that purpose.
The freedom to visit websites, communicate, and post to the Internet without the interference of government is a right people around the world should be able to take for granted. Unfortunately, for growing portions of the world’s population, that is not the case. In fact, the Freedom on the Net report by the online activist group Freedom House shows that “Internet freedom around the world declined in 2016 for the sixth consecutive year.”
While the climate-change doomsayers constantly harp about global warming, climate blogger Tony Heller reported on November 13 that over the last eight months, global temperatures over land have cooled a record 1.2°C.
