'Shame on you!': San Juan mayor fires back after Trump warns about disaster relief

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz fired back at President Trump on Thursday after he warned that federal relief workers can’t remain in Puerto Rico indefinitely even as the hurricane-ravaged island struggles to recover.

“Your comments about Puerto Rico are unbecoming of a Commander in Chief they seem more to come from a ‘Hater in Chief,’” she tweeted. “It is not that you do not get it; you are incapable of fulfilling the moral imperative to help the people of PR. Shame on you!”

Trump issued his warning about pulling federal aid to the U.S. island territory earlier Thursday.

“We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!” Trump tweeted after quoting conservative television host Sharyl Attkisson and suggesting that Puerto Rico’s poor infrastructure was a “disaster” before Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma struck.

Trump made no such threats to Texas or Florida after Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma battered those states. Both disasters triggered massive federal responses in the U.S. mainland.

The tweets came a day after officials in Puerto Rico said the death toll from Maria has risen to 45, with at least 113 people unaccounted for. The hurricane battered Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm on Sept. 20, leaving millions without power and virtually the entire island without cellphone communication.

According to a website set up by the Puerto Rican government for updates on the recovery efforts, more than 80 percent of the island remains without power, and nearly half its residents still have no cellphone or landline service. Parts of Puerto Rico continue to be running low on medicine and fuel.

Trump has come under sharp criticism for his combative response to the situation in Puerto Rico. The president attacked Cruz after she made a public plea for more federal resources.

“Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help,” the president tweeted on Sept. 30. “They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”

He stirred controversy by picking a fight with National Football League players shortly after Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico last month. And while visiting the island last week, Trump applauded his administration’s relief efforts while simultaneously attempting to downplay the devastation, comparing the death toll from Hurricane Maria to “a real catastrophe” like Hurricane Katrina, which caused more than 1,800 fatalities when it slammed into Louisiana and Alabama in 2005.

During a meeting with local officials there, Trump also complained about the island’s drain on the federal budget.

“I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack,” Trump said. “We’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico, but it’s fine.”

A day later, Trump complained that the media’s coverage of the trip was “fake.”

In Washington, D.C., on Oct. 6, three days after touring the devastation, Trump said there were more than 15,000 federal workers on the island.

“Puerto Rico has a long road of recovery ahead,” Trump said. “We will not rest until that job is done.”

Government Warns…..If You Get A Call From Your Own Number, Don’t Pick Up….Here’s Why

The most recent phone scam makes it seem like you are getting a phone call from yourself.

If you get a phone call from your own number, don’t answer; this is the most recent cell phone scam that is going around and could put your security and personal information at risk.

People across the country have been receiving these phone calls, with some answering and others missing the call or deliberately ignoring it. Donny Claxton talked to WFAA about his experience late one night:

“My phone starts ringing and at that hour of the night, you are alarmed at who is calling you. […] I look at the phone, and it’s me and I am looking. How am I calling myself? And I look at my phone. And there is no one there. And then it hangs up.”

Claxton isn’t the only one experiencing this.

Anson Massey, from Waco, Texas, picked up the phone. He told KXXV:

“I picked it up, and there was a voice on the other end, and it said my account had been compromised through AT&T.”

Massey wasn’t fooled, since he “thought it was odd. We get those all the time but never from my own number.”

So, he decided to record the phone call.

“Your account has been flagged for security purposes. After the tone, please enter the last four digits of the primary account holder’s social security number.”

Massey made the right decision and hung up without entering the information. Instead, he called AT&T right away. They confirmed that his account was fine and complimented him on not giving away any information.

What happened to Claxton and Massey, and is happening to numerous others across the country, is known as spoofing.

Phylissia Landix, from the Better Business Bureau, explained this process to WFAA.

“Spoofing is when someone who shouldn’t have it will take a computer program that will disguise a telephone number, and you will get a phone call from what it looks like yourself.”

According to Landix, spoofing can help the scammers in two ways. They may try to trick you into giving up information by posing as your phone company’s account, hoping to get your social security number or something similar. They can also use technology that inserts fraudulent charges onto your upcoming telephone bill.

Landix says that:

“The longer time you spend on that phone, the greater chances they can get something done and insert the fraudulent charge.”

There is something you can do to avoid most of these issues.

  • If you get a phone call from an unknown number or one that seems odd (such as your own phone number), don’t answer the call.
  • You should also check your monthly phone bill to ensure no fraudulent charges were added.
  • If possible, consider adding yourself to the Do Not Call registry as well.
  • If you do receive a phone call from a suspicious number, you should contact the Federal Trade Commission, as well.

Unfortunately, other than being smart about giving out information and answering phone calls, there isn’t much you can do. Adam Price, also from the Better Business Bureau, told KXXV:

“The reality is… a lot of these cons and scammers are coming from overseas. They’re outside the jurisdiction of the U.S. government.”

These scammers are even using recent data breaches to create a feeling of legitimacy and get information.

Avoid problems by never giving personal information out over the phone unless you are positive about who you are talking to – and preferably dialed the number yourself. Just let calls from unknown numbers go to voicemail. If it is important, the person will leave a message and you can call them back.

Assange Warns About Vegas Shooting: ‘Almost All Terror Plots are Created by the FBI’

AssangeAssange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange weighed in on last Sunday night’s deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas, and he pointed out that the FBI has a sordid history of targeting mentally ill and emotionally unstable individuals.

“Almost all ‘terror’ plots are created by the FBI as part of its business model,” Assange wrote.

Arguably one of the world’s most respected journalists, whom members of the federal government want to label a spy, Assange linked his comments to a Business Insider story written by Caroline Simone titled, “The FBI is ‘manufacturing terrorism cases’ on a greater scale than ever before.” Simone wrote an echo piece from the New York Times which indicated that 67% of terrorism criminal cases also involved evidence provided by undercover FBI agents.

Simone wrote an echo piece for the New York Times, which indicated that 67 percent of terrorism criminal cases also involved evidence provided by undercover FBI agents.

Sami Osmakac is one such poor and emotionally unstable individual, also referenced in Assange’s tweet, who the FBI groomed to be one of their nabbed terrorists. Democracy Now covered the Osmakac case and provided a synopsis:

“How the FBI Created a Terrorist.” That’s the subtitle of a new exposé in The Intercept by Trevor Aaronson, a journalist who investigates the FBI’s use of informants in sting operations. The article tells the story of Sami Osmakac, a mentally disturbed, financially unstable young man who was targeted by an elaborately orchestrated FBI sting in early 2012. The operation involved a paid informant who hired Osmakac for a job, when he was too broke to afford inert government weapons. The FBI provided the weapons seen in a so-called martyrdom video Osmakac filmed before he planned to deliver what he believed was a car bomb to a bar in Tampa, Florida. His family believes Osmakac never would have initiated such a plot without the FBI.

The New York Times‘ Eric Lichtblau wrote:

The F.B.I. has significantly increased its use of stings in terrorism cases, employing agents and informants to pose as jihadists, bomb makers, gun dealers or online “friends” in hundreds of investigations into Americans suspected of supporting the Islamic State, records and interviews show.

Unfortunately, the list of individuals the FBI has entrapped, as some have charged, also includes dozens of individuals who are either mentally ill or emotionally unstable.

“They’re manufacturing terrorism cases,” said Michael German, a former undercover agent with the F.B.I. who researches national security law at New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice. In many of the recent prosecutions, he said, “these people are five steps away from being a danger to the United States.

Critics such as Michael German should know, he used to work for the FBI as an undercover agent. German charges that if left alone, those so-called terrorists would likely not hurt anyone. However, the FBI disagrees. They contend if they wait around and do nothing, those individuals with terrorist leanings will act on their plans and impulses.

Ironically enough, Fox News’ Judge Napolitano agrees. He addressed the FBI’s controversial practice of latching on to emotionally unstable individuals, befriending them, giving them a terror plot to conduct, empowering them to conduct it, and giving them the final pushes needed to carry out those terror plots. Here’s the segment below:

Napolitano accurately reported that all of the attempted terror plots the FBI has interrupted, were, in his words, “created by the Feds.” In other words, they manufacture a terror plot, locate a willing participant to be characterized as the bad guy “terrorist,” and then foil the plot just as it is about to be carried out.

Do you remember the “shoe bomber,” the “underwear bomber” and the “Times Square bomber“? The individuals at the heart of those foiled terror plots were, in Napolitano’s words “bumbling fools,” or bad actors in the FBI’s planned foiled terrorist operations, but who were stopped concerned citizens—not the FBI.

But Napolitano calls the “more curious cases,” the ones who the FBI groomed, empowered and unsurprisingly nabbed just before they carried out their attacks. The judge charges the FBI “befriended, cajoled, and persuaded them” to attack Americans. Doesn’t that make them a State-sponsor of terrorism, albeit foiled terrorism?

Unfortunately, there is inherent risk involved with arming potential terrorists for a FBI-sponsored terror sting. Sometimes those plots don’t go as plan and there is always a potential for the bad actor to actually be successful with going through with the terrorist attack.

It is still too early to know if Paddock was one such bad actor in an FBI terror sting operation gone bad. According to the lead FBI agent in the “1-October” case, Aaron Rouse, the FBI is tracking down every lead both in the U.S. and overseas, and if people want to report any information, they should contact the FBI directly.

Taken together, Assange’s tweet, combined with the accurate reporting of left-leaning New York Times and right-leaning Fox News, a vivid picture emerges. The left, the right, and the independent are all becoming aware of just how dangerous the FBI’s anti-terrorism stings can be, especially if Paddock’s murderous rampage is revealed to be the work of an FBI sting operation gone bad.

Bad actors are needed, after all, to continue the endless War on Terror, and they are useful in creating revenue for the FBI, Assange contended. He wrote that they are especially needed for “taxes” and represent a “stable” and legitimate “threat.” Assange also added the plot, execute, intercept model the FBI currently uses is their “business model.” Without it, presumably, their business fails.

Billionaire investor warns: U.S. "wealth disparity" will end in "revolution, taxes, or war"

    

Having previously warned of the “disastrous market mania,” and told Janet Yellen to “be terrified” in April, legendary trader Paul Tudor Jones has a new message for CEOs, urging them to stop embracing the profit-above-all-else ethic creating massive wealth-inequality, or face the “tearing down of our civilization via war, revolution, or taxes.”

“One of the key things that always ends up tearing down great civilizations and countries is wealth disparity. It’s not sustainable,” explained the billionaire hedge fund manager at the Forbes Under 30 Summit in Boston, telling corporate chiefs that they have gone too far in embracing economist Milton Friedman’s profit-above-all-else ethic and they need to change how they do business.

Corporations have paid too much attention to prioritizing shareholders, said Jones, who’s backing a nonprofit called JUST Capital that will rank companies on how well they treat their employees, consumers, communities and investors.

Bloomberg reports that Jones said that even Friedman would rethink his ideas if he could see how divided the U.S. has become in terms of wealth, and worries about the outcome…

“The way wealth disparity has been historically dealt with is either wars, revolution or taxes. My guess is in the future it’ll be one of those three in this country.”

At the time of Friedman’s 1970 article, “The Social Responsibility of Business Is to Increase Its Profits,” the maximum federal individual tax rate was 70 percent, versus about 40 percent today. The wealth gap was one-fifth of what it is today, said Jones.

Friedman believed corporate executives should make as much money as possible while “conforming to the basic rules of the society.”

The economist also thought that if people want to do good in society they should do so through personal charity rather than through the companies they manage, direct, or invest in.

“I would argue today if he came back and saw where we are as a country, I don’t think he would say that,” said Jones, 63. “Shareholders have benefited at the expense of labor and that has had a huge social impact on this country.”

Jones ranked his own company using the JUST criteria and discovered that he underpaid the people hired to landscape the property surrounding his Greenwich, Connecticut-based firm. They were paid $11 an per hour.

“We looked through our contractual workers and upped their pay so they could get to a living wage,” said Jones, whose net worth is estimated at $3.1 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Notably, Jones laid off 15 percent of his employees last year, a rare move for a man who’s known for his loyalty towards staff, and as Bloomberg reports, after living in Connecticut for decades, Jones moved to Florida last year, which has no income tax.

* * *

This is not the first time that Tudor Jones has discussed so-called “Just Capital.” In 2015 he delivered a TED Talk on the topic…

Can capital be just? As a firm believer in capitalism and the free market, Paul Tudor Jones II believes that it can be. Tudor is the founder of the Tudor Investment Corporation and the Tudor Group, which trade in the fixed-income, equity, currency and commodity markets. He thinks it is time to expand the “narrow definitions of capitalism” that threaten the underpinnings of our society and develop a new model for corporate profit that includes justness and responsibility.

It’s a good time for companies: in the US, corporate revenues are at their highest point in 40 years. The problem, Tudor points out, is that as profit margins grow, so does income inequality. And income inequality is closely linked to lower life expectancy, literacy and math proficiency, infant mortality, homicides, imprisonment, teenage births, trust among ourselves, obesity, and, finally, social mobility. In these measures, the US is off the charts.

    

“This gap between the 1 percent and the rest of America, and between the US and the rest of the world, cannot and will not persist,” says the investor.

“Historically, these kinds of gaps get closed in one of three ways: by revolution, higher taxes or wars. None are on my bucket list.”

Tudor proposes a fourth way: just corporate behavior. He formed Just Capital, a not-for-profit that aims to increase justness in companies. It all starts with defining “justness” – to do this, he is asking the public for input. As it stands, there is no universal standard monitoring company behavior. Tudor and his team will conduct annual national surveys in the US, polling individuals on their top priorities, be it job creation, inventing healthy products or being eco-friendly. Just Capital will release these results annually – keep an eye out for the first survey results this September.

Ultimately, Tudor hopes the free market will take hold and reward the companies that are the most just. “Capitalism has driven just about every great innovation that has made our world a more prosperous, comfortable and inspiring place to live. But capitalism has to be based on justice and morality…and never more so than today with economic divisions large and growing.”

This is not an argument against progress, Tudor emphasizes. “I want that electric car, or the jet packs that we all thought we’d have by now.” But he’s hoping that increased wealth will bring with it a stronger sense of corporate responsibility. “When we begin to put justness on par with profits, we get the most valuable thing in the world. We get back our humanity.”

* * *

And here is his full TED Talk on the topic..

* * *

Finally as a reminder, in April, Tudor Jones, who runs the $10 billion Tudor Investment hedge fund, said Yellen should be very afraid, warning that years of low interest rates have bloated stock valuations to a level not seen since 2000, right before the Nasdaq tumbled 75 percent over two-plus years.

That measure – the value of the S&P relative to the size of the economy – should be “terrifying” to a central banker, Jones said earlier this month at a closed-door Goldman Sachs Asset Management conference, according to people who heard him.

    

While the billionaire didn’t say when a market turn might come, or what the magnitude of the fall might be, he did pinpoint a likely culprit.

Just as portfolio insurance caused the 1987 rout, he says, the new danger zone is the half-trillion dollars in risk parity funds. These funds aim to systematically spread risk equally across different asset classes by putting more money in lower volatility securities and less in those whose prices move more dramatically. Because risk-parity funds have been scooping up equities of late as volatility hit historic lows, some market participants, Jones included, believe they’ll be forced to dump them quickly in a stock tumble, exacerbating any decline.

“Risk parity,” Jones told the Goldman audience, “will be the hammer on the downside.”

Indeed, with all that low-vol leveraged, it wouldn’t be the first time.

WHO warns world running out of synthetic antibiotics, but refuses to acknowledge power of natural herbal antibiotics

Image: WHO warns world running out of synthetic antibiotics, but refuses to acknowledge power of natural herbal antibiotics

(Natural News)
The rise in antibiotic resistance has now reached the point where the World Health Organization feels the need to announce that the planet is running out of antibiotics. Not enough new antibiotics are being developed, according to their report, particularly when it comes to treating antibiotic-resistant infections.

This is indeed concerning. WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus sums up just how dangerous the situation is when he says that we could be “forced back to a time when people feared common infections and risked their lives from minor surgery.” After all, our modern medical system is essentially built on the foundation of antibiotics. Many common treatments, operations and even the care of premature babies simply cannot be carried out without dependable antibiotics.

When bacteria mutate and become immune to a particular antibiotic, it is known as antibiotic resistance, and it’s been a growing problem fueled by the overuse of antibiotics as well as the use of antibiotics in animals that are later consumed by people. Making matters worse is poor education on the matter, with a WHO survey finding that 64 percent of those questioned thought antibiotics could be used to treat the flu or cold even though they are caused by viruses. Meanwhile, two thirds of respondents thought that people who take antibiotics as prescribed won’t develop antibiotic resistance, and nearly half believed that only those who take antibiotics on a regular basis were susceptible to superbugs.

One of the many infections that is growing resistant to currently available antibiotics is gonorrhea, which affects 78 million new people every year. The U.N. health agency recently updated its guidelines for sexually transmitted infection treatment, warning that only three antibiotics are currently being developed for the treatment of gonorrhea, and there is no guarantee that the drugs under development will even make it to the market.

For pharmaceutical companies, there isn’t much profit in antibiotics because they are quite costly to develop and are typically only taken in short courses, unlike medications for cholesterol or blood pressure that must be taken long-term. In fact, most of the new antibiotics development is being funded by philanthropic or public research grants, according to the WHO report.

However, there is one important distinction that needs to be made: The lack of antibiotics the WHO is lamenting is only referring to synthetic antibiotics. There are actually quite a few potent natural herbal antibiotics out there, but they don’t get nearly as much attention as their Big Pharma-funded counterparts.

Nature provides us with antibiotics

One of the best natural antibiotics is raw honey, which fights infections on multiple levels. This approach makes it difficult for bacteria to become resistant to it. Garlic is another powerful antibiotic, and it also boasts antifungal and antiviral properties. This is why it was used back in the 1700s to help ward off the plague.

Oil of oregano is also known for its ability to kill bacteria, making it suitable for controlling MRSA and other common infections. A 2001 Georgetown University study found that is just as effective at killing germs as most antibiotics, and it also boasts antiseptic, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, pain relief, and anti-parasitic properties, making it a great all-around essential oil. Another essential oil that has been shown to kill antibiotic-resistant MRSA on skin is tea tree oil.

Olive leaf extract possesses the ability to fight bacterial infections, and it’s so effective that some European hospitals are using it in the battle against MRSA infections. While fighting antibiotic-resistant infections, it also supports the immune system.

Nature has provided us with the solutions to many of the health issues our world is facing, and overlooking its power is costing us lives every day.

Dr. Duke & Atty Advo: Alabama Landslide Warns Trump to Keep Promises – Cuckservatives Lie Saying NFL Protest had Nothing to Do With Race! It’s About Anti-Racism!

Download

Today Dr. Duke welcomed the victory by Roy Moore over Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary to finish the term for the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. While Trump travelled to Alabama to campaign for Strange, who is favored by Mitch McConnell and the Republican establishment, Roy Moore actually is much more in tune with the issues championed by candidate Donald Trump

He also continued the discussion of the NFL controversy with Attorney Don Advo. They talked about the legacy of slavery in America. While slavery is a horrible institution that plagued mankind throughout history and around, black Americans today have actually benefited greatly from the fact that their ancestors were brought to this country, and in fact the lives of slaves in the antebellum South were in general far longer, healthier, and more reproductive than those of Africans in Africa during the same period of time.

Bannon warns GOP establishment: ‘Your Day of Reckoning is coming’




Home » Breaking News, North America, Politics, Videos » Bannon warns GOP establishment: ‘Your Day of Reckoning is coming’













 






Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon reportedly said during a Monday night rally in Alabama that the Republican establishment faces a “day of reckoning.”

“For Mitch McConnell and Ward Baker and Karl Rove and Steven Law — all the instruments that tried to destroy Judge Moore and his family — your day of reckoning is coming,” Bannon told the crowd, according to Politico.

Bannon made the remarks at a rally for former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who on Tuesday faces off against Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) in the GOP Senate primary runoff.

Bannon was referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), former senior advisor to President George W. Bush Karl Rove, former National Republican Senatorial Committee executive director Ward Baker, and Senate Leadership Fund president Steven Law.

Re: Syrian Opposition warns against Arab and regional efforts to rehabilitate the Assad regime

Chairman of the legal committee of Syria’s Democratic Opposition Coalition, Haitham Al-Maleh, warned of Arab, regional and international efforts to bury the Syrian revolution and rehabilitate the regime of Bashar Al-Assad.

In an interview with Quds Press, Al-Maleh revealed the “serious” complications that face the Syrian revolution as well as the opposition factions because of the decline of material and political support for the opposition forces and the simultaneous reopening of communication channels between some Arab regimes and the Assad regime.

Al-Maleh noted that the Syrian Opposition Coalition suffers from a severe shortage in  funding and that many of its branches, including its branch in Brussels, are likely to close.

Al-Maleh expressed his regret that this is taking place while some Arab countries, including Egypt and Algeria are supporting the regime of Bashar Al-Assad while  some others such as Tunisia are seeking to reopen the channels of communication with a regime that has killed and displaced millions of innocent Syrians

He added, “Some Arab countries are now seeking to finish what Iran and Russia have started in their support of Bashar Al-Assad against the Syrian people, but this is a useless support since Syrians as well as the international community will not accept a reconciliation with a regime that committed all these crimes against its people.

#WarInSyria

On the upcoming meetings of the Supreme Commission for Negotiations in Riyadh, Al-Malehalso said that “the positions of various Arab, regional and international countries regarding the Syrian revolution are very unclear, and perhaps the upcoming Riyadh meetings are symptoms of this ambiguity.”
