Saturday Echoes 


Abaddon Awaits

It’s a cold, blustery, day

In the distance, the neighbors are target shooting

The sound of each round echoes through the woods

It reminds me of something

The sound…it evokes a primal emotion within me, and it’s beautiful in its way

It’s the sound of safety…of preservation…of revolution

It is the sound of love blowing out the flame

All one ever deserved or has given comes back in the echo of that sound

I remember hunting with my dad in West Texas when I was little. He and I would ride on the tool box in the back of the truck, while my grandmother drove barely faster than a walking pace. I got to hold his rifle, as he scanned the desert for deer, his binoculars in one hand and a beer in the other.

That rifle was as long as I was tall and I felt very important because…

Facebook Suspending 30,000+ Accounts, Priority: Accounts With “High Volumes Of Posting Activity and the Biggest Audiences”


FUCK YOU ZUCKERMAN!

Facebook said it was acting against 30,000 accounts this week. It said its priority was to remove suspect accounts with high volumes of posting activity and the biggest audiences.

This is happening now in Europe, but if you think it isn’t coming here, or hasn’t already happened, then you aren’t one of us it in those targeted categories that have already been punished by lengthy stays in Facebook Jail.

The move, which comes 10 days before the first round of a hotly contested French presidential election, is among the most aggressive yet by Facebook to move against accounts that violate its terms of service, rather than simply respond to complaints.

Facebook is under intense pressure in Europe as governments across the continent threaten new laws and fines unless the company moves quickly to remove extremist propaganda or other content that violates local laws.

The pressure on social media sites including Twitter, Google’s YouTube and Facebook has intensified in the run-up to the elections in France and Germany.

Facebook already has a program in France to use outside fact-checkers to combat fake news in users’ feeds.

Also on Thursday, Facebook took out full-page ads in Germany’s best-selling newspapers to educate readers on how to spot fake news.

U.S. intelligence agencies have determined that the Russian government interfered with the U.S. election last year in order to help Donald Trump win the presidency. Officials say a similar campaign is under way in Europe to promote right-wing, nationalist parties and undermine the European Union.

In a blog post, Facebook said it was acting against 30,000 fake accounts in France. It said its priority was to remove suspect accounts with high volumes of posting activity and the biggest audiences.

Two people familiar with Facebook’s process said the company had strengthened its formula for detecting deceptive accounts being run by automated means. As an example, the new process considers accounts that have smaller circles of friends and that therefore had been less of a priority previously.

A key motivator was the need to get tougher on misinformation ahead of the French elections, the people said, although the move also targets accounts that generated spam for financial gain.

“We’ve made improvements to recognise these inauthentic accounts more easily by identifying patterns of activity — without assessing the content itself,” Shabnam Shaik, a Facebook security team manager, wrote in an official blog post.

The company is using automated pattern-recognition to identify repeated posting of the same content and increases in messaging.

Thursday’s action follows other moves by Facebook to make it easier for users to report potential fraud and hoaxes.

In other words, helping Liberal trolls get our legitimate conservative profile banned even more than they do already!

It’s Official! Kim Jong-un’s Penis Is Smallest of All Time


Hitman With a Limp

epa_kim_jong_un_jef_160106_31x13_1600

Scientist were ecstatic today when the official measurements of North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un’s penis was made public, making his penis size, the smallest ever on human record.

Dr. Jorgenson, a Penis Information Size Specialist (PISS) from the University of South London, published a medical journal outlining this exciting discovery.  Dr. Jorgenson had this to say about what he calls, the most profoundly small penis in well over 20,000 years of human development.  “It’s a miracle,” Dr. Jorgenson said with the enthusiasm of a young college student, “Kim Jong-un’s penis length came in under 2.0 uber-nanometers (fully erect) which was a measurement we had to invent because we couldn’t measure anything that small before.  This size smashed the previous record for smallest penis held by Republican Presidential nominee, Donald Trump, who measured an impressive 2.1 uber-nanometers (also fully erect) and no one in the scientific community thought that was even…

The Lying Liberal Press Has Been Spreading #FakeNews About The Cost Of The MOAB. Surprised?


The giant bomb U.S. forces dropped Thursday on an ISIS training camp in Afghanistan did not cost $314 million to develop, or $16 million per unit as reported by multiple news outlets. Far from it, barely a fraction of that.

The bomb U.S. forced dropped Thursday on an ISIS training camp in Afghanistan cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $170,000 per unit in 2003, but the Pentagon does not have an exact cost, according to an Air Force statement.

The Air Force’s cost estimate for the MOAB — the largest non-nuclear bomb ever detonated in combat — includes parts, labor, and contracted components, according to “an estimate put together at the time” MOAB was produced, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The first MOAB bomb was made leading up to the Iraq war in 2003, and $170,000 spent that year would be closer to $227,000 today, adjusting for inflation.

Multiple news outlets reported Thursday that each Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB), or Mother of All Bombs, bomb cost $16 million, with a total program cost of $314 million. Those figures were likely gleaned from a misreading of an Los Angeles Times article about a different bomb, and a questionable military asset website, The DCNF reported Thursday.

Every news report about cost of the “Mother of All Bombs” relied on a misreading of a 2011 article or a dubious internet website that InfoWars once linked to with a “healthy bit of skepticism.”

The actual cost of the bomb is unknown. The actual cost of the program isn’t publicly available because the Mother of All Bombs, officially known as GBU-43 or the Massive Ordinance Air Blast (MOAB), is manufactured by the military and not a private defense company.

In fact, the Air Force doesn’t even keep track of the per unit cost, nor the cost of the program as a whole, because it is not manufactured privately.

“We don’t have a cost per unit” for the MOAB, Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “These munitions were produced in-house so we don’t have a standard procurement cost associated with them.”

The Air Force mostly used existing technologies and hardware for the first MOAB prototypes and never contracted out the full production of the bomb, so they did not need to itemize and add the cost of each weapon component, Stefanek told TheDCNF.

Many reports Thursday, including USA Today, the Washington ExaminerCNBC and others, claimed the MOAB cost $314 million to develop, citing a 2011 Los Angeles Times report.

The cost estimates in that article, however, only refer to the cost of the Air Force’s biggest bunker busting bomb, the 5,300 pound Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP), or GBU-57, which is built by private defense contractor Boeing Company. “At a total cost of about $314 million, the military has developed and ordered 20 of the GPS-guided bombs, called Massive Ordnance Penetrators,” the LA Times report says.

(Via AP) A strike by the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used in combat by the U.S. military killed 36 Islamic State group militants and left no civilian casualties, hitting a tunnel complex in the remote mountains of eastern Afghanistan, Afghan officials said Friday.

While the two bomb types are related, they serve different functions — the MOP is designed to destroy underground bunkers as deep as 200 feet below the surface, while the MOAP crushes everything on the surface within a wide radius. The MOAB, like its Daisy Cutter predecessor, can only be dropped out of a C-130 built by Lockheed Martin, and the MOP is deployed from the B-2, a Northrop Grumman aircraft.

Many news organizations, including TIME and CNBC, also cited Deagel.com, a site with extensive lists of weapons assets owned by multiple countries, which claims the MOAB costs $16 million per unit, the same amount as the reported cost of the MOP.

Deagel links to no source to verify its information. The site’s IP is registered to an address in Spain, and the most press they’ve received was for a 2015 prediction that the U.S. population would drop by more than 80 percent by 2025 due to an economic and cultural collapse. “The American collapse is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union’s one [sic],” the forecast said.

InfoWars wrote this disclaimer when it wrote up Deagel’s report: “…we publish this report with some hesitation and a healthy bit of skepticism, yet find it compelling enough given the current global environment that it may be of interest to readers.”

The Air Force did award at least one contract in the development of the bomb to Dynetics, a defense contractor headquartered in Huntsville, Ala., for design of the bomb’s guidance system for the relatively low sum of $35,000.

The MOAB replaced the Vietnam-era bomb known as the “Daisy Cutter,” but is far more powerful and boasts greater navigation capabilities than its predecessor.

Like the Daisy Cutter, the MOAB delivers a pressurized blast a few feet off the ground that crushes everything in a wide radius.

“What it does is basically suck out all of the oxygen and lights the air on fire,” Bill Roggio, senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told Air Force Times. “It’s a way to get into areas where conventional bombs can’t reach.”

The Air Force Research Laboratory ordered design concepts for “a 21,000-pound weapon system called the Massive Ordnance Air Blast” in April 2002, according to a 2014 report Dynetics delivered to the Senate Committee on Appropriations.

Dynetics then partnered with the Air Force to build and test three prototypes of the MOAB on March 11, 2003. Anyone within 20 miles of Eglin Air Force Base in Florida that day would have been able to see a giant mushroom cloud on the horizon at 1 p.m.

Dynetics partnered with the Air Force laboratory to build three prototypes of the MOAB, one of which was tested on March 11, 2003. Anyone within 20 miles of Eglin Air Force Base in Florida that day would have been able to see a giant mushroom cloud on the horizon at 1 p.m. The Air Force conducted a second test later that year.

After the test, the Pentagon ordered the bombs, and Dynetics helped produce “more than 10 weapons and delivered them between April and May,” rapidly turning around the weapon just nine weeks after the first successful test.

The process happened so fast that technicians painted the MOAB John Deere green because that was “the only color available in the amount we needed,”said Robert Hammack, AFRL Munitions Directorate Munitions Fabrication Facility.

“Every technical glitch or roadblock we encountered was worked out,” Robert Hammack, who lead the design team for AFRL, said in an Air Force post about the history of the MOAB. “Our team was filled with engineers and other people with deeply important skill sets necessary to pull this off.”

The fact that the bomb was never used during the Iraq war doesn’t mean they didn’t have an effect, according to the Air Force. “The most amazing thing about MOAB is it’s the most powerful bomb ever built and has done its job — deterring the enemy — simply because they know about it,” Hammack said.

Condition Red in North Korea? Kim Jong-Un Orders ‘IMMEDIATE EVACUATION of Pyongyang’ – PRAVDA


Russia and Asian media are reporting that the North Korean capital of Pyongyang is being evacuated ahead of a “big surprise” on Saturday.

Nearly everyone is interpreting that to mean North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is planning to do something that will spark war with the United States.

According to South Korean media, residents in the kingdom have said goodbye to each other, sparking concerns the tyrannical leader could be about to act after months of nuclear weapon testing.

From Pravda (translated):

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un gave the order, according to which, 25% of North Korea’s capital Pyongyang must urgently leave.

That is 600 thousand people need to be evacuated. Experts note that it is likely this is due to the extremely heightened tensions with the United States. There is information that the bomb shelter Pyongyang will not be able to accommodate the entire population of the capital. As a result, 600,000 people urgently need to leave the city – first of all people to break the law, tried.

Receive information and that a grouping of the US Navy, unfolding off the coast of Korea, joined at least one modified missile like “Ohio” bearing type “Tomahawk” missiles 154. According to media reports, the missile is expected to arrive in the port of registry for 18 of April.

Meanwhile, according to the South Korean newspaper, prewar farewell began in North Korea. North Korean residents say goodbye “to each other, the house, the native plant or enterprise, forest, field, sky, river and the sea, the mountains.” But say goodbye to the security forces, party or mentioned in the Word farewell leadership of the country is prohibited.

Recall that at the weekend through Chinese social media circulated reports that the auxiliaries and doctors sent to the border of North Korea.

Widespread picture, which shows the chain of military trains moving around Shenyana– city, located about 200 miles from the North Korean border.

About 150,000 Chinese military were mobilized in anticipation of North Korean refugees escape from the country in case of a US airstrike.

Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster, in turn, said that his commander in chief ordered the direction of the US carrier strike group to the region. McMaster said the decision to move US Navy ships in the Sea of Japan, “reasonable”, given North Korea’s “provocative behavior model.”

Speaking to Fox News, McMaster said: “The president has asked (us) to be prepared and to provide him with a full range of options to eliminate this threat.”

Recall that North Korea has condemned the attack Trump in Syria, calling it an act of “intolerable aggression”.

By the way, the news of the transfer of Chinese troops have managed to scatter on the media. RIA “News”, for example, it denied. China also denied information on the transfer of 150 thousand soldiers to the border of North Korea.

Earlier expert Aydin Mehdiyev said next aggravation of the situation may occur on April 15, when North Korea could conduct another test an intercontinental ballistic missile.”

However, a well-known Russian orientalist , Professor Andrei Lankov, who for many years worked in Seoul, warns that if the United States will cause a military attack on the facilities of North Korea, back Pyongyang could directly endanger the lives of 25 million residents of Seoul, which is located on the border of North and south. “In this case, a new Korean war is inevitable,” – he warns.

Russia and Asian media are reporting that the North Korean capital of Pyongyang is being evacuated ahead of a “big surprise” on Saturday.

Nearly everyone is interpreting that to mean North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is planning to do something that will spark war with the United States.

According to South Korean media, residents in the kingdom have said goodbye to each other, sparking concerns the tyrannical leader could be about to act after months of nuclear weapon testing.
A tweet from Channel NewsAsia’s Beijing Correspondent Jeremy Koh said: “We’ve been told to be ready to move out at 6.20am, but no idea why. Also, no cell phones allowed.”

More than 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birthday of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15.

Foreign reporters have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on North Korea’s biggest national celebration, called ‘Day of the Sun’.

Hundreds of journalists from around the world are in Pyongyang at present, and they have been told to get ready for a MAJOR event this weekend.

Folks, it looks like this is really happening. The North Korean leadership is just that INSANE.

Thank God we have a REAL leader in charge to handle the situation.

Woman Commands One of the Navy Ships that Fired Missiles Into Syria – VIDEO


The Department of Defense identified the USS Porter and the USS Ross as the two US Navy destroyers that fired Tomahawk cruise missiles into Syria on Wednesday in retaliation for the Assad regime’s use of nerve agents on its own people.

The USS Porter is one of the Navy destroyers that launched the cruise missile strike into Syria.

Commander Andria Slough, a 1998 graduate of the US Naval Academy, is the captain of the Porter. Her counterpart on the USS Ross is Commander Russell Caldwell, according to the web pages for both ships.

 

During her Navy career, Slough has served on a variety of ships and had previously commanded a minesweeper, the USS Defender.

Caldwell, originally from South Africa, graduated from the University of Kansas in 1998. He also served on several Navy ships before taking command of the USS Ross. He also has a master’s degree in Information Operations from the Navy Post Graduate School.

Both ships are Arleigh Burke-class guide missile destroyers and are assigned to the Navy’s forward deployed base in Rota, Spain.

The strike was conducted using Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles – or TLAMS – launched from the USS Porter and the USS Ross in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, the Navy said.

A total of 59 TLAMS targeted aircraft, hardened shelters, air defense systems, and supply depots at the al-Shayrat Airfield – where US officials said the chemical weapons were stored before they were used on the Syrian people.

Guided missile destroyers like the USS Porter and the USS Ross have a crew of about 33 commissioned officers, 38 senior non-commissioned officers and a crew of 210 enlisted sailors.

The ships are powered by gas turbine engines and are capable of speeds in excess of 30 knots or about 35 mph.

In addition to their ability to launch guided missiles, US Navy destroyers – known as DDGs – are designed to carry out anti-ship, anti-air and anti-submarine operations using a variety of weapons systems.

Neil Gorsuch Was Unanimously Confirmed in 2006 by the Very People Criticizing His Nomination Now!


Is it true that Gorsuch was approved by unanimous consent by the Senate for a court of appeals seat in 2006? Absolutely, and here’s the proof!

CLAIM

Judge Neil Gorsuch was unanimously confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2006.

RATING

TRUE

ORIGIN

On 31 January 2017, President Donald Trump announced his nomination for the Supreme Court to replace the late Antonin Scalia: federal appellate judge Neil Gorsuch.  Almost immediately after the announcement, Democratic senators began to voice their opposition to President Trump’s nominee:

schumerComments such as those reproduced above were seen as hypocritical by some supporters, as Gorsuch had been confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals more than a decade earlier with very little opposition. Conservative web outlets published articles saying that Gorsuch had been confirmed for his current position unanimously and had enjoyed the full support of Democratic senators at the time, including Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton.

That Gorsuch was confirmed unanimously by the Senate is completely true. According to the a Congressional Research Service (CRS) report on the U.S. Circuit and District Court Nominations made by President George W. Bush, Gorsuch was confirmed in an “en bloc voice vote” on 20 July 2006.

A Denver Post article published a month before Gorsuch’s 2006 confirmation detailed the Denver judge’s career and noted that he faced little opposition and was considered a shoo-in. In fact, only one Senator, Republican Lindsey Graham, questioned Gorsuch during a twenty-minute Senate committee confirmation hearing:

Denver native Neil Gorsuch seemed headed toward easy confirmation to the Denver-based 10th Circuit Court of Appeals after gliding through a 20-minute U.S. Senate committee hearing on his qualifications.

Only one senator on the 18-member Judiciary Committee attended the hearing, a signal the nomination is not controversial.

“I have nothing but good things to say about Mr. Gorsuch,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the sole senator at the hearing. Graham worked with the Columbia-, Harvard- and Oxford-educated Gorsuch at the Department of Justice.

Gorsuch’s actual confirmation was also non-controversial. However, stating that Gorsuch received the full support from all quarters may be slightly disingenuous, as individual votes were taken by voice and were not tallied:

Gorsuch’s nomination was approved on a voice vote. Individual votes weren’t tallied because the nomination wasn’t deemed controversial.

Biden and Schumer, however, were members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2006 and, as far as we can find, raised no objections to Gorsuch’s confirmation back then.

Another Congressional Service Research report, this one concerning the appointment process of for U.S. Circuit and District Court nominations, noted that although circuit court nominations require a simple majority vote, most nominees are by custom confirmed unanimously:

Customarily, most circuit or district court nominations have reached confirmation under the terms of unanimous consent agreements. On this procedural track, the Senate by unanimous consent not only takes up nominations for floor consideration, but also arranges for them to either receive up or-down confirmation votes or be confirmed simply by unanimous consent. If a roll call vote is asked for, a simple majority of Senators voting, with a minimal quorum of 51 being present, is required to approve a nomination. 

During the 109th Congress, for instance, the Senate voted unanimously in favor of confirmation during eight roll call votes. Two other nominations (Gorsuch and Bobby Shepherd) were confirmed by an en bloc vote

Coca-Cola Company Sponsors April as National Arab American Heritage Month! #AmericaFirst Network


Clearing out my junk email this morning, I was taking a drink of Diet Pepsi when I saw an email from Arab America and figured it had to be some spam hoax to get you to click on an evil Russian virus or something, so I made sure my security filters were good and set, then clicked on it, holding my breath…

No bells and whistles. Hmm…what do we have here?

Inside was this courteous invitation to join arms in recognizing and celebrating National Arab American Heritage Month!

Checked out the links, it was legitimate. Website links, contact info, sponsor links, mostly with weird alphabet soup names of companies I’d never heard of.

Meh, no big deal…

*************************

Arab America invites you to recognize and celebrate National Arab American Heritage Month this April!

Celebrating National Arab American Heritage Month April 2017

During the month of April, Arab America formally recognizes the achievements of Arab Americans through the celebration of National Arab American Heritage Month (NAAHM). Across the country, cultural institutions, school districts, public servants, and Arab Americans will engage in special events that celebrate our community’s rich heritage and numerous contributions to society.

During a time of heightened hate crimes, bigotry, and misunderstanding towards the Arab American community, it is more imperative than ever to use education and information sharing to embrace our culture, dispel stereotypes, and empower the next generation of Arab American trailblazers.

As part of our month-long celebration, Arab America has been asking legislators, city councils, and school board members to issue NAAHM proclamations and adopt our NAAHM curriculum kit. Sent to nearly 100 school districts, the curriculum kit highlights the history of Arab migration to America, geographic understanding of the Arab world, Arab American diversity in faith and language, interesting customs and traditions, issues affecting our community, and our many achievements in business, politics, education, and more.

Among those recognizing NAAHM include: Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Arlington Public Schools, Montgomery County Public Schools, the City of Dearborn Heights, and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Arab America is also committed to promoting the community’s events and stories through our website and social media platforms during the month of April. Every week, Arab America will feature cultural events taking place throughout the US on our events page, and share compelling success stories of Arab Americans on our blog page.

“Unfortunately, we’re in a time where negative stereotyping and political rhetoric have induced unwarranted hate and bigotry directed against our community,” said Arab America president, Warren David. “We are hopeful that the spirit of National Arab American Heritage Month will restore the dignity our community deserves.”

As the leading provider of digital media to the Arab American community, Arab America will also work alongside diverse partners to host a cross-cultural reception in Washington DC, featuring Arab American leaders, members of Congress, and talented artists.

Arab America encourages members of the community, their friends, the media, educators, and public servants to join us in our formal recognition of April as National Arab American Heritage Month.

Arab America is a digital platform founded with the purpose of reinforcing an accurate image of the Arab American community and the Arab World. Arab America’s mission is achieved by disseminating the latest news, up-to-date events, and cultural and educational resources. With close to four million Arab Americans in the US, Arab America serves as a “bridge” bringing together the diverse communities of Arab Americans.
