This was nowhere more evident than in the protests that erupted in Moscow earlier this month after local police planted cocaine and other drugs in the apartment of investigative journalist Ivan Golunov, who exposed high level corruption in the Moscow burial business and among the relatives of a Moscow deputy mayor.</p><p>Due to the protests, Golunov was acquitted and case closed, but the story does not end there. Corruption in law enforcement and in courts is choking Russia's economic growth.</p><p>This is no exaggeration: Russia's GDP growth is anemic. Its economy is saddled with Western sanctions. And Russia <a href="https://cdn.defenseone.com/b/defenseone/interstitial.html?v=8.28.0&amp;rf=https%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.defenseone.com%25252Ftechnology%25252F2019%25252F01%25252Fputin-orders-national-ai-strategy%25252F154555%25252F" rel="nofollow" class="external">allocates</a> less and less funding towards critical high-tech areas like space and artificial intelligence (AI)&#8212;the opposite of competitors like China and the United States. However, unlike a real black hole that swallows all matter, this one allows capital to escape&#8212;Russia's freezing business climate is simply too harsh for investors.</p><p>In 2018, $68 billion <a href="https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/01/18/russias-capital-outflow-more-than-doubled-2018-68-billion-reports-a64193" rel="nofollow" class="external">fled</a> Russia&#8212;twice as much as the year before. Since 1994, over $750 billion left Russia, Bloomberg <a href="https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/03/13/russia-lost-750b-to-capital-flight-since-1994-bloomberg-a64790" rel="nofollow" class="external">estimates</a>. Millions of educated young people emigrated to the UK, Silicon Valley, and Israel.</p><p>Furthermore, Russia's higher-ups are implicated in the largest <a href="https://www.ft.com/content/519ad6ae-bcd8-11e8-94b2-17176fbf93f5" rel="nofollow" class="external">money laundering</a> scheme in history, which was disclosed at the end of 2018. Run via Danske Bank out of Tallinn, Estonia, the operation is alleged to have laundered over $200 billion, much of it originating from within the Russian Federation. <a href="https://danskebank.com/news-and-insights/news-archive/company-announcements/2019/ca19022019" rel="nofollow" class="external">Latvian and Moldovan</a> banks are alleged to have participated as well. Putin's cousin Igor is allegedly <a href="https://www.occrp.org/en/projects/28-ccwatch/cc-watch-indepth/7698-report-russia-laundered-billions-via-danske-bank-estonia" rel="nofollow" class="external">connected</a> to the scheme, at least according to OCCRP, a Washington, D.C.-based anti-corruption watchdog.</p><p>If the United States and Russia are to repair the frayed relationship, Trump can and should offer Putin technical assistance in restoring the rule of law, the absence of which invites corrupt state officials and oligarchs to destroy shareholders' value, cause massive industrial companies to accrue crippling debt, abuse state-subsidized credit, and engage in corporate raiding, Russian style&#8212; known colloquially as <em>reiderstvo</em>.</p><p>Russian corporate raiding is a <a href="https://www.huffpost.com/entry/corporate-raiding-russian_b_9991990" rel="nofollow" class="external">well-known phenomenon</a>. Emerging in the 1990s, it mutated into a genuine dark art form in 2003-2005, when Igor Sechin, the current <a href="https://www.rosneft.com/governance/management/item/6119/" rel="nofollow" class="external">CEO and Chairman of the Management Board</a> of the state-owned oil behemoth Rosneft, <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/business/2004/apr/22/oilandpetrol.russia" rel="nofollow" class="external">raided</a> Russia's independent Yukos oil company. Former Yukos shareholders were eventually awarded over $50 billion to compensate for their loss in the Yukos affair. They continue to seek justice as their case reaches a critical stage in The Hague, with a trial in September.</p><p>In 2014 Rosneft raided Bashneft, a successful oil company owned by AFK Sistema, the apolitical businessman Vladimir Yevtushenkov's holding company, by involving Russian authorities. As a result, he lost Bashneft, paid $2.3 billion in compensation to Rosneft, and Sistema's stock declined from $23 in 2014 to $2.80 last week.</p><p>Anders &#197;slund, a senior fellow and my colleague at the Atlantic Council, writes in his excellent new book "<a href="https://yalebooks.yale.edu/book/9780300243093/russias-crony-capitalism" rel="nofollow" class="external">Russia's Crony Capitalism</a>", that Gazprom, another national champion, is the top value destroyer of Putin's realm.

But, to paraphrase the Harvard historian Edward Keenan, Russia swallowed these reforms up and spat them out&#8212;just as it did with capitalism, social democracy, parliamentary government, and individual rights.</p><p>Today, <em>reiderstvo</em> is alive and well: A number of oligarchs made their names in <em>reiderstvo</em> wars. One of them the majority owner of worldwide fertilizer heavyweight Uralkali and sister company Uralchem is <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-07-08/prokhorov-s-onexim-sold-uralkali-to-structures-close-to-mazepin" rel="nofollow" class="external">Dmitry Mazepin</a>.

In <a href="https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/3976152" rel="nofollow" class="external">Kafkaesque court proceedings ongoing in Samara</a>, a judge named Andrey Kirillov allowed anonymous witnesses, permitted the use of faked evidence, barred the defense from calling witnesses, and threw out the earlier-agreed court schedule, allegedly to suppress defense evidence and testimony.

In violation of the double jeopardy principle, entrepreneurs across the country are being pressured with charges of criminal conspiracy under Article 210 of the criminal code. An article designed to combat organized criminal gangs, 210 is now applied to any perceived economic crime against companies and their leadership who have become targets of investigators, says Tatyana Mineeva, the Moscow City business ombudsman. And now this same tactic is being employed in the <a href="http://tltgorod.ru/news/?news=100879" rel="nofollow" class="external">TogliattiAzot</a> saga.</p><p>As a lawyer, I am always shocked and depressed when I observe Russian court room proceedings, something I have done on numerous occasions. If Mr. Trump had a sensibility about the rule of law, he would recognize it as Mr. Putin's ultimate vulnerability. As long as corporate raiders continue to run unchecked, receiving credit and government support on the highest level, Russia will be a land from which money flees and companies die; a place where, as the ancient maps used to say, "there be dragons" &#8211; in the business sense.</p><p><em>Ariel Cohen, Ph.D., is a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, and Director, Energy, Growth and

He infamously tweeted &#8220;Unpresidented.&#8221; This typo is emblematic of his administration: An impulsive, frantically thrown together group of characters with virtually no oversight. After Trump was sworn in, I started writing the weekly &#8220;<a href="https://rantt.com/column/unpresidented/" rel="nofollow" class="external">Unpresidented</a>&#8221; column, analyzing his every move.

In his Orlando rally, Trump decided to use the same old tired messaging he used in 2016. Attacks on Hillary Clinton, cries of persecution, and fear mongering about immigration. While this false rhetoric about the dangers of migrants were spewed at Trump&#8217;s rally, news of the poor conditions child migrants are enduring spread.</p><p>When it comes to Iran, the Trump Administration has propelled us to this point through their reckless actions. Iran was complying with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) when President Trump withdrew from the deal. Now, the region is on the brink of conflict. Luckily, President Trump couldn&#8217;t bring himself to retaliate to Iran&#8217;s downing of a US drone with force, backing down from a strike at the last minute. Instead, the Trump Administration opted for a cyber attack and additional sanctions. Let&#8217;s hope cooler heads prevail and National Security Adviser, and Iran hawk, John Bolton is left curling his mustache in anger that he didn&#8217;t get his way.</p><p>It wouldn&#8217;t be a week in the United States without a new potential corruption scandal involving a Trump family member. Jared Kushner&#8217;s Deutsche Bank transactions were reportedly flagged by an anti-money laundering expert in 2016. The transactions included money sent to Russians in 2016. We learned that those transactions are now under scrutiny as part of a broader money laundering investigation by the FBI.</p><p>The end of the week brought with it a bombshell.

(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)</p></div><p>Four years ago this week, President Trump descended down the golden escalators in Trump Tower and announced his candidacy for president. And he never really stopped campaigning, even after being inaugurated. Rather than suggest productive solutions to real problems like income inequality, climate change, and student loan debt, Trump has opted to sow anger.</p><p>Since he announced in 2015, Trump has been constantly spreading disinformation, fear mongering, manufacturing crises to rally his base, scapegoating immigrants, and villainizing his critics. Rather than the aspirational politics of many of his predecessors, Trump&#8217;s core political message is grievance and fear. Today&#8217;s kickoff rally for his 2020 campaign was no different.</p><p>Vice President Mike Pence began <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Qkl62CmVOY" rel="nofollow" class="external">the rally in Orlando, Florida</a> by naming alleged promises President Trump has kept and then lied about Democrats advocating for infanticide. Pence then launched into a misleading tirade about how Democrats are trying to replace America&#8217;s way of life with socialism and are targeting &#8220;freedom.&#8221; How is trying to provide healthcare and education to Americans targeting freedom?</p><p>After spending the past few days tweeting about the incoming deportation of &#8220;millions&#8221; of immigrants (<a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/18/us/politics/trump-immigration-deportations.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">disputed by his administration</a>), Trump&#8217;s rally struck a familiar tone. President Trump&#8217;s core message is that immigrants are flooding over the border and that Democrats are seeking to rob his supporters of their livelihood. Trump is also relitigating the past, falsely claiming he is a victim of an illegal witch hunt, and complaining more about Hillary Clinton than he is about <a href="https://rantt.com/every-2020-democratic-candidate-ranked/" rel="nofollow" class="external">the 2020 Democratic candidates</a>.</p><p>During his rally, President Trump continued his authoritarian tendencies by attacking the media. Of the Democrats, Trump said: &#8220;Our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred, prejudice, and rage. They want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it.&#8221; It appears Trump forgot one of his supporters <a href="https://rantt.com/magabomber-mail-bomb-suspect-cesar-sayoc-jr-was-radicalized-by-trumps-rhetoric/" rel="nofollow" class="external">mailed pipe bombs</a> to CNN and his Democratic critics or he just doesn&#8217;t care.</p><p>Trump falsely claimed that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller&#8217;s <a href="https://rantt.com/a-page-by-page-guide-to-the-redacted-mueller-report/" rel="nofollow" class="external">report</a> found no collusion or obstruction when it actually outlined over 100 pages of collusion evidence and 10 key areas of obstruction. Trump repeated the false claims that his campaign was spied on. Trump accused Democrats of wanting to use the law to target their opponents while he has Attorney General William Barr <a href="https://t.co/OA1kk9KZtL" rel="nofollow" class="external">investigating</a> people he falsely accused of treason. Trump also tried to claim he has drained the swamp in spite of the <a href="https://rantt.com/8-reasons-gop-administrations-are-more-corrupt-than-democrats/" rel="nofollow" class="external">countless corruption</a> scandals plaguing his administration.</p><p>Perhaps the biggest representation of the con that is this presidency, President Trump called &#8220;Make America Great Again&#8221; the greatest slogan of all time and claimed it is his.

McFadden is an anti-money laundering expert, and at the time told Deutsche Bank about the transactions and that she found &#8220;money had moved from Kushner Companies to Russian individuals.&#8221; In 2017, her colleagues flagged suspicious transactions involving President Trump&#8217;s companies, but it&#8217;s unclear if Trump&#8217;s transactions are part of this new probe. The F.B.I. has contacted McFadden as part of their investigation.</p><p>As we know, Deutsche Bank is the German bank that was the only major financial institution willing to do business with businessman Donald Trump when he was deemed too risky an investment for US banks.&#160;<a href="https://rantt.com/why-trump-and-kushner-should-be-terrified-of-muellers-deutsche-bank-subpoena/" rel="nofollow" class="external">According to reports</a>, the Trump Organization currently owes Deutsche Bank $364 million (his companies have received over $2.5 billion in loans over two decades) and his son-in-law, and White House Adviser, Jared Kushner&#8217;s company owes the bank $285 million.

A US drone <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/20/politics/drone-shot-down-by-iran-airspace-dispute-explainer/index.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">has been shot down by Iran</a>. While officials claim it was shot down in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz, Iran claims that it was in Iranian airspace. The Trump Administration has yet to announce its retaliatory measures, but President Trump has said it could&#8217;ve been unintentional, seemingly signaling he&#8217;s not too keen on conflict.</p><p>There are reports that President Trump disagrees with National Security Adviser John Bolton on exactly how the US should retaliate.</p><p>Top members of Congress <a href="https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-meets-with-top-members-of-congress-on-iran-live-updates/" rel="nofollow" class="external">huddled</a> with President Trump today to talk next steps. Given the <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/some-iranians-fear-hardliners-in-the-us-and-iran-want-to-provoke-war/2019/06/18/d4ff2382-9136-11e9-956a-88c291ab5c38_story.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">new hardline leadership in Iran,</a> this is an important story to watch. As we wait to see whether the US will perform a limited strike or something significantly more measured, some context about Bolton&#8217;s hawkish worldview, and how it&#8217;s helped us get to this point, is important. As we&#8217;ve covered before here at <em>Rantt</em>, Bolton&#8217;s hawkish stance on Iran has been well documented. Bolton&#8217;s calls for regime change in Iran long predate his tenure in the White House. When he was appointed by President Trump in April 2018, pundits and Democratic lawmakers raised concerns about what could come.</p><p>In a nutshell, Bolton has helped to propel President Trump&#8217;s foreign policy towards a conflict with Iran. If the Trump administration wanted to reduce Iran&#8217;s nuclear capacity, they would&#8217;ve stayed in the Iran Nuclear deal, more officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Bolton wanted an excuse to levy more sanctions on Iran, apply economic pressure on the country, and cause regime change by sparking an uprising among the Iranian people. With that in mind, let&#8217;s break down all the developments that led us here.</p><p>As a candidate, Donald Trump promised he would tear up the JCPOA. Under the terms of the deal, Iran received relief from economic sanctions in exchange for reducing their nuclear material and uranium enrichment. This was President Obama&#8217;s signature diplomatic achievement and took cooperation with the UN Security Council to pull it off. It was signed in 2015. Trump&#8217;s criticized the deal and alleged violations on the part of Iran, even as his own administration&#8217;s officials, like then-Secretary of Defense James Mattis, said none existed.</p><p>President Trump <a href="https://rantt.com/trumps-iran-deal-violation-a-region-on-the-brink-and-what-happens-next/" rel="nofollow" class="external">withdrew from the deal</a> in May of 2018 &#8211; one month after John Bolton took H.R. McMaster&#8217;s position as National Security Adviser. It&#8217;s more accurate to say the Trump administration violated the JCPOA, because Iran was complying with the deal and was overseen by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) &#8211; who validated Iran&#8217;s compliance 9 separate times. In the immediate aftermath, Iran did not choose to violate the terms of the JCPOA and worked with the European signatories (UK, France, and Germany) to continue to receive the deal&#8217;s benefits even without America&#8217;s participation.</p><p>In response, President Trump threatened to sanction America&#8217;s own allies if they did business with Iran &#8211; mainly by purchasing Iranian oil which is the bedrock of their economy. Those moves crippled Iran&#8217;s economy thoroughly, causing them to get frustrated, triggering what we&#8217;ve seen since.</p><p>In April of this year, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the US would <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-iran/u-s-officially-designates-irans-revolutionary-guards-a-terrorist-group-idUSKCN1RR1BE" rel="nofollow" class="external">designate</a> the Iran Revolutionary Guard, an Iranian military branch, as a terrorist organization. In early May, Iran said that it would begin to withdraw from some components of the JCPOA, by enriching small amounts of uranium. On May 5th, the US sent an aircraft carrier to the region, warning of potential attacks from Iran.

The new tool is intended to reshape the GOP&#8217;s fundraising apparatus by creating a centralized, one-stop shop for online Republican giving, which the party has lacked to this point.</p><p>Story Continued Below</p><p>The launch caps months of behind-the-scenes discussions involving top Republicans. President Donald Trump and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner were involved, as were GOP congressional leaders and mega-donor Sheldon Adelson. The end product, Republican leaders hope, will fill a gaping void in the party&#8217;s machinery.</p><p>&#8220;This is the first time I&#8217;ve ever seen either political party come together to do something genuinely good for campaigns instead of consultants,&#8221; said Josh Holmes, a top lieutenant to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) who was involved in the negotiations. &#8220;It&#8217;s unquestionably the most significant realignment of political infrastructure in my career.&#8221;</p><p>Reeling after a midterm election in which they were badly<a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2018/11/12/republicans-fundraising-donations-2020-983243" rel="nofollow" class="external"> outraised by Democrats</a>, Republicans reached a <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/01/21/republican-fundraising-patriot-pass-1116642" rel="nofollow" class="external">landmark agreement</a> early this year to consolidate behind a single online platform that could serve the entirety of the party. Republicans until now have had a factionalized ecosystem of vendors that stymied efforts to unify behind a single fundraising vehicle. </p><p>But ironing out the legal details of the deal, with so many players involved who'd been operating previously on separate tracks, proved a heavy lift. The launch had been initially<strong> </strong>planned for February.</p> <p>The delay caused considerable angst within some corners of the party, <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/06/20/republican-house-2020-campaigns-1372388" rel="nofollow" class="external">particularly among House Republicans</a> who worry they will once again be financially outgunned in the coming election. While Trump&#8217;s political machine and Senate Republicans have been outpacing their Democratic rivals this year, the House GOP campaign arm has trailed its Democratic counterpart.</p><p>Republican officials say Trump&#8217;s reelection campaign and national party committees have begun moving their online fundraising operations onto the new platform and that down-ballot campaigns will be able to sign up starting Monday. Every GOP candidate will have access to the system, though party officials stress that no one will be required to use it. Other payment processors, such as Anedot, remain on the market.</p><p>Gerrit Lansing, WinRed&#8217;s president, and Mike Shields, a former Republican National Committee chief of staff who is involved in the also project, were expected to brief House GOP leaders on the launch Sunday evening. Lansing, a veteran GOP digital strategist, is slated to address several other party gatherings in the coming months.</p><p>Republicans acknowledged the delays but note the launch comes in time for the start of the third fundraising quarter, when many 2020 House GOP candidates are expected to announce. </p><p>&#8220;If we had wanted to go alone we could have created this in five minutes. But in order to bring this large a group of foundational stakeholders together it takes time to get the legal language right,&#8221; said Shields, a senior adviser at Data Trust, the RNC's designated clearinghouse of voter information that will form part of WinRed&#8217;s nucleus. </p><p>Party officials also had to sell skeptical lawmakers on the new product. During a spring meeting with Lansing and Shields at the National Republican Congressional Committee&#8217;s headquarters, a group of House Republicans complained that primary challengers would be able to use WinRed.</p></div> <p>The most unexpected stumbling block surrounded the initial decision to dub the new product &#8220;Patriot Pass.&#8221; The name was abruptly dropped after New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft told the president that the processor sounded too much like his football team. By that point, Holmes had already delivered separate presentations to Senate Republicans and major GOP donors in which he introduced the new platform as &#8220;Patriot Pass.&#8221;</p><p>Story Continued Below</p><p>Trump, ever the branding expert, took particular interest in the naming. He phoned top allies including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to bounce ideas off them. During a meeting with political aides in the White House earlier this year, the president proposed &#8220;ActRed.&#8221; He also came up with another suggestion: &#8220;WinRed.&#8221;</p><p>That one stuck. While Democrats act, Trump told his team, Republicans win.</p><p>The president has periodically asked 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale and RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel for updates on the project. Trump had been expected to plug WinRed during his Orlando campaign launch last week, though the idea was ultimately shelved. </p><p>Party officials say Trump has come to see the new product as a key part of his political legacy and expect him to help promote it.</p><p>The contours of the agreement started to take shape in the weeks after the party&#8217;s 2018 drubbing. Senior Republicans including McConnell, McCarthy and McDaniel began pressing for a rival to ActBlue, which raked in around $1.6 billion during the midterms. Adelson, the GOP&#8217;s most prominent and influential donor, also pushed for change.</p><p>With encouragement from Trump's political team, Republicans eventually settled on a plan to unify behind a platform that would fuse Revv, a payment processor used by the president&#8217;s campaign, with Data Trust. </p></div> <p>The vehicle will closely mimic ActBlue&#8217;s capabilities, giving users an easy-to-use hub that will allow them to enter their credit card information and contribute to their candidate of choice with a click. Once a donation is complete, the screen will refresh with suggestions of other candidates to contribute to.</p><p>WinRed has been designed with an eye toward enabling down-ballot Republicans to capitalize on Trump&#8217;s massive small donor base. The product will allow the president to send fundraising appeals asking supporters to split their donations between his reelection campaign and Republican congressional candidates. </p><p>With his endorsement of the platform, McDaniel said, Trump is "offering a tremendous hand to other Republican candidates."</p><p>Story Continued Below</p><p>Trump is also expected to benefit. Down-ballot candidates will be able to send appeals asking for donors to divide their contributions between them and the president.</p><p>By making Data Trust a key component of the product, Republicans hope to improve their 2020 turnout efforts. After each donation is completed, the giver&#8217;s information will be added to their file stored at Data Trust. With each donation, a contributor&#8217;s profile will be further refined.</p><p>The total of each transaction will include a fee of 3.8 percent plus an additional 30 cents. Data Trust will use those revenues to make improvements to the WinRed platform. Party officials say they&#8217;re aiming to create a level of transparency that has often been lacking in the Wild West nature of small-dollar fundraising.</p><p>Some Republicans want to lower expectations for the product. While Democrats have long been unified behind ActBlue, which was founded in 2004, the GOP has never lined up behind a single entity. Getting candidates and small donors to move to WinRed, party strategists stress, isn&#8217;t likely to happen instantaneously.</p><p>&#8220;ActBlue has had 15 years to grow,&#8221; said Lansing, &#8220;and today&#8217;s launch is the first step in a long journey to unify the party behind a central platform.&#8221; <br /></p><div></div><div></div> Trump’s erratic policy moves put national security at risk, experts warn https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-erratic-policy-moves-put-national-security-at-risk-experts-warn/2019/06/23/9cfae958-95d2-11e9-830a-21b9b36b64ad_story.html?utm_term=.cd6bacf3f823 Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:d5522509-f4f1-e4ac-1511-fb4b3d7e1cda Mon, 24 Jun 2019 07:58:06 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/trumps-erratic-polic/0:457740">shared this story</a> .</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div><p> </p></div><p> </p><p> </p></div> This is the only reason Trump won't confront Putin https://edition.cnn.com/videos/politics/2019/06/23/trump-putin-election-interference-presidential-brief-vinograd-sot-nr-vpx.cnn Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:7b3a1384-1dc8-9acc-bc76-bbafdd18cf6c Mon, 24 Jun 2019 07:57:06 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/this-is-the-only-rea/0:84e73e">shared this story</a> .</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div><div><div><div><div><p>Chat with us in Facebook Messenger.

Iran maintains that it was not responsible for the attacks on the tankers.</p><p>The cyberattacks were aimed at an Iranian intelligence group that US officials believe was behind a series of attacks on tankers in the Persian Gulf region. The US operation was intended to take down the computers and networks used by the intelligence group, at least temporarily. A separate online operation was aimed at taking out computers that control Iranian missile launches.</p><p>The White House has told military and intelligence officials it wants options in line with the kind of operations conducted by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, the officials said.</p><p>President Donald Trump has made clear he believes that, at this point, a direct strike would be escalatory, although he has repeatedly warned Iran against further aggression.</p><p>Intelligence and military officials have told White House policymakers, including Mr Trump, that without an additional US response, Iran will continue to destabilise the region.</p><p>Some divisions of opinion in the administration remain. A number of senior national security officials agree that further action against Iran is needed, but they are divided about how public that action needs to be.</p><p>Officials did not provide specifics about the secret operations under consideration by the White House. But they could include a wide range of activities such as additional cyberattacks, clandestine operations aimed at disabling boats used by Iranians to conduct shipping attacks and covert operations inside Iran aimed at fomenting more unrest. The United States might also look for ways to divide or undermine the effectiveness of Iranian proxy groups, officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive, confidential administration planning.</p><p>The CIA has long-standing secret plans for responding to Iranian provocations. Senior officials have discussed with the White House options for expanded covert operations by the agency, as well as plans to step up existing efforts to counter Iran's efforts, according to current and former officials.</p><p>One former US military commander said there was a range of options that the Pentagon and the CIA could pursue that could keep Iran off balance but that would not have "crystal-clear attribution" to the United States. A US operation that was not publicly announced could still deter further action by Teheran, if Iran understood what United States operatives had done, the former officer said.</p><p>The types of responses the United States could undertake are broad if the United States was willing to use the same tactics that Iran has mastered, said Mr Sean McFate, a professor at the National Defence University and author of "The New Rules of War." "If we want to fight back, do it in the shadows," he said.</p><p>Mr McFate said the United States could put a bounty on Iran's paramilitary and proxy forces. That would create an incentive for mercenary forces to take on Hezbollah and other Iranian proxies. US intelligence forces also could find new ways to assist existing protests against the Iranian government. Such efforts could include spreading information, either embarrassing truths or deliberate false rumours, aimed at undermining the support that Tehran's elites have for Iran's leaders, he said. The United States could also look at ways to make protests by Iran's labour movement more effective at weakening the government.</p><p>Current and former officials say that Iran's covert attacks against shipping and its downing of a US drone are an attempt to try to raise pressure on the United States. Iran, they say, hopes that by sowing chaos in the Persian Gulf it can drive up oil prices, which will put pressure on Mr Trump and US allies dependent on Middle Eastern oil. Iran maintains that the drone it shot down had violated its airspace, while US officials insist it had been over international waters.</p><p>"From the Iranian perspective, unconventional attacks, threats against Gulf shipping and air routes and bellicose rhetoric represent the best ways to pressure the international community to compel the US to relieve sanctions without igniting a conventional conflict," said Mr Norman T. Roule, a former national intelligence manager for Iran and a CIA Middle East expert.</p><p>Some officials believe the United States needs to be willing to master the kind of deniable, shadowy techniques Teheran has perfected in order to halt Iran's aggressions. Others think that, while helpful, such clandestine attacks will not be enough to reassure U.S. allies or deter Iran.</p><p>Iran will probably pause its activities for a time, senior US officials said. But, with sanctions biting, they say Iran will once again resume attacks on shipping. That will once more force the White House to consider a direct military strike.</p><p>While so-called gray zone operations are meant to stay below the threshold of inciting open conflict, the moves always run the risk of touching off exactly what both sides are trying to avoid: a shooting war.</p><p>Moreover, some online operations are far easier than others. Knocking an intelligence agency's computers offline, as the United States did with Russia last year during the midterm US elections, is fairly basic. But getting inside a missile launch operation is much harder; although the United States succeeded in doing so in North Korea, it took a long time and prompted the North Koreans to build an entirely different missile system.</p><p>The Iranians have much greater capability to strike back in the cyber realm than they did a decade ago. Their foray into American banks in 2012 and 2013 was, in retrospect, a training exercise. When the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning on Saturday about Iranian cyberthreats, it described much greater capabilities. Iran's "cyber corps" has had years of training in causing damaging attacks, like the one it conducted on a Las Vegas casino and other targets in the United States.</p><p>Mr Roule also agreed the United States response needed to be public and clear. "The best US options will not be covert," he said. "Overt options send the strongest message of deterrence. Iran needs to know that the US - supported by the international community - will not tolerate its behaviour."</p><p>Mr Trump has been stung by criticism about his decision to call off the strikes after the Iranian drone attack. But the president believes a combination of covert operations by the CIA and clandestine operations by the military's Cyber Command and other military forces will demonstrate his resolve as commander in chief, a senior administration official said.</p><p>The president is eager to avoid a messy shooting war with Iran, which he believes would violate his campaign promise to keep America out of protracted conflicts in the Middle East. A shadow war would reduce the exposure of US troops and, if Iran was unsure of whether the United States or its allies were responsible, its response could be muted.</p><p>Authoritarian powers, like Iran, have an easier time with hybrid conflicts built on deceptions and falsehoods.</p><p>For example, Russian tactics in Crimea and eastern Ukraine in 2014 demonstrated the effectiveness of hybrid warfare in a post-Cold War era. Russia was able to leverage confusion, obfuscation and violence to achieve geopolitical gains.</p><p>Russian special forces without insignia, the so-called little green men, helped Moscow seize Crimea. And Russian-backed separatists, commanded by Russian military officers, have effectively cut off eastern Ukraine from the rest of the country, despite international outcry.</p><p>Iran has its own track record of using hybrid tactics, mostly through the use of its proxy forces in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and elsewhere.</p><p>After the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, Iran became adept at striking the United States without provoking a direct response. Teheran's militia proxy forces regularly fired rockets at US bases in Iraq, and Iran flooded the battlefield with a particularly deadly form of roadside bomb that penetrated some of the best US military armour.</p><p>In past decades, though, the United States was much better at thinly veiled, shadow operations. During the Cold War, the United States regularly used unconventional tactics, proxy forces and its intelligence agency to keep adversaries off balance.</p><p>The CIA began mining Nicaraguan harbours in 1984: The nominally covert, but well-publicised, operations were not aimed at sinking ships. Instead, the agency's real target was the international insurance markets.</p><p>The Reagan administration, which was backing the Contra rebels, hoped raising insurance rates would reduce shipping, raising prices on critical goods and increasing public pressure on the leftist Nicaraguan government.</p><p>Iran's strikes on tankers in recent weeks echo that old CIA operation, current and former officials said. After initial strikes on tankers last month, Lloyd's of London, the international insurance company, announced it would effectively raise insurance rates for the entire Persian Gulf.</p><p>Reviving America's old tactics and finding a way to copy Iran's new ones could be the best way to try to halt Teheran's current campaign, Mr McFate said. The defensive measure the United States has taken, including deploying an aircraft carrier and Patriot missile batteries to the region, have not halted Iran's activities.</p><p>"Iran is playing by the new rules," he said, "while we are using the obsolete ones, and wonder why Iran's behaviour is not changing."</p><div><div><div><div><div><p>Unlock all Premium articles and discover exclusive stories, in-depth analysis, award-winning multimedia content and more.

Warner says he wants consumers to be more informed about the real value of what they give up in the form of, for example, location data, relationship status, data about the apps we use, our age, gender and lifestyle. </p><blockquote>"These companies take enormous, enormous amounts of data about us... If you're an avid Facebook user, chances are Facebook knows more about you than the U.S. government knows about you. People don't realize one, how much data is being collected; and two, they don't realize how much that data is worth."</blockquote><cite>&#8212; Sen. Mark Warner on "Axios on HBO"</cite><p><strong>Between the lines:</strong> The point of the bill is to help consumers understand what they may be giving up when they click on "I agree" and hold tech companies to a higher level of transparency.</p><ul><li>Individuals wouldn't get any sort of pay-out for the use of their data.</li><li>The value of an individual's data is the <a href="https://medium.com/wibson/how-much-is-your-data-worth-at-least-240-per-year-likely-much-more-984e250c2ffa" rel="nofollow" class="external">subject of some debate</a>. Warner says it's probably around $5 a month, while other estimates put it around $20 a month. It could be more, depending on the type of data collected. </li></ul><p><strong>How it works:</strong> The legislation will be introduced Monday as the Designing Accounting Safeguards to Help Broaden Oversight and Regulations on Data Act, or DASHBOARD for short. </p><ul><li>The bill would require companies that generate material revenue from data collection or processing &#8212; and have more than 100 million monthly users &#8212; to disclose to users the types of data collected, how it is used, and to provide an assessment of the value of that data once every 90 days. </li><li>It would require these companies to disclose annually to the Securities and Exchange Commission the aggregate value of all of their users' data. The report would have to include details of contracts with third parties for data collection, how revenue is generated by user data, and measures taken to protect that data.</li><li>The bill would direct the SEC to develop methods for calculating the value of user data, accounting for varying uses, sectors, and business models. </li><li>Companies must provide a setting or tool for users to delete all or part of their data.</li></ul><p><strong>The other side: </strong>Tech companies are reluctant to disclose specifics of how users data is gathered, shared and sold. There's little chance they'll be interested in putting a dollar figure on how much that data &#8212; the core of their business &#8212; is actually worth to them. </p><ul><li><strong>Some have argued</strong> it's not possible to calculate the exact value of specific pieces of data in a high-volume marketplace across an industry that uses data across dozens of platforms, all delivering different services with different business models. </li><li><strong>"Boloney," Warner said of that defense.</strong> "I mean if these companies &#8212; go back to Facebook &#8212; can do all these acquisitions and many of these acquisitions were made on what appeared to be outrageous prices &#8212; they had a pretty darn good notion of how they could use that data and how much that was worth from one platform to another."</li></ul><p><strong>Despite more aggressive calls to break up Big Tech</strong>, Warner said he's not yet sure that's necessary, as long as Silicon Valley is receptive to more tailored measures like this bill. </p><ul><li>Warner told "Axios on HBO" he plans to introduce a separate bill "in a few weeks" that would require tech firms to <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-tech-warner/u-s-senator-warner-eyes-social-media-bills-for-hate-speech-data-portability-idUSKCN1RN314" rel="nofollow" class="external">make data portable </a>so consumers can move it from one platform to another. </li><li>He's also sponsored legislation to <a href="https://www.niemanlab.org/2017/10/the-honest-ads-act-would-force-internet-companies-to-change-their-disclosure-practices-by-january-2018/" rel="nofollow" class="external">improve online political ad disclosures,</a> and to <a href="https://www.axios.com/scoop-senators-target-the-ways-the-web-tricks-you-1554761685-0d393953-967d-4362-954d-08bcf5ad27c3.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">ban social media sites from tricking users</a> into giving up their data.</li><li>"If they're not willing to work with us on this kind of, I think, rational, focused reform, then I may very quickly join the crowd that simply says, 'you know, let's break them up,'" he said.

How can a species whose intellect has uncovered the most intricate workings of Nature, explored the depths of the cosmos and harnessed the physical universe to serve humanity continue to carelessly careen toward self-destruction?</p><p>How can smart beings behave so stupidly?</p><p>While the defining attribute of the human species is its magnificent brain, ontogeny does not always repeat phylogeny. Many individual members of the species, maybe even most, are dullards &#8212; essentially two-legged herd animals content to follow the beasts in front of them while paying little heed to where that leads.</p><p>And, while one needs not have the intellectual horsepower of an <a href="https://www.biography.com/scientist/albert-einstein" rel="nofollow" class="external">Albert Einstein</a> to be a sapient being, intelligence has to be exercised, otherwise there isn&#8217;t intelligence. Acquiring knowledge, objective examination, applied logic and prudent skepticism are essential exercises for intelligence.</p><p>Blinkered devotion to ideology, while convenient for indolent intellects, is not intelligence. It is prone to garbage-in-garbage-out thinking and avoids the effort of actually exercising the brain above its limbic level.</p><p>People motivated by fear and anger are more easily persuaded with bombast, bromides and bunkum. They want relief from their anxiety and remedy for their grievances. All aspiring leaders need do is tell such people what they want to hear. Those who do that most convincingly can often win leadership positions.</p><p>Trump was the more skillful snake oil salesman in the 2016 presidential election cycle and so, with the indispensable assistance of the <a href="https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/" rel="nofollow" class="external">Electoral College</a>, he won.</p><p>He recognized and spoke to the desperation of many Americans. That desperation that drove them to vote for him derived from the economic and cultural shifts that over the past several decades have negatively affected or threatened the social and economic status, security and expectations of large segments of American society.</p><p>&#8220;Make America Great Again&#8221; was the perfect, if not an original, campaign slogan to rally those disaffected Americans. It alluded to a mythical past &#8212; the &#8220;good old days&#8221; &#8212; when everybody knew their place in society, affluence was broadly attainable and economic disparity was not as glaring.</p><p>It was a time when the nation was united in patriotic pride over its ascendance as the world&#8217;s most powerful nation, and when all &#8220;good Americans&#8221; worshiped the same god and dutifully stood for the national anthem. A time when tobacco was not dangerous but marijuana was. A time when environmental pollution was ignored for the sake of economic expansion, marriage was only for heterosexuals and abortions were mostly prohibited.</p><p>As they always do, times change &#8212; but many minds do not.</p><p>To a great extent, the resistance to the realities of change answers my friend&#8217;s question about how someone like Trump could be elected president. It was the hope that a Trump presidency would bring back that mythical past &#8212; a hope as pathetically improbable as expecting that the Ghost Dance and a White Buffalo would bring back the good old days for the American Indians.</p><p>America is now at one of those critical inflection points that punctuates the history of all great nations, when what people believe and who they choose as, or allow to be, leaders determines the arc of history for good or bad.</p><p>The conundrum confronting America at this point, and maybe its greatest threat, is the tendency for so many Americans to embrace a simplistic political dichotomy that limits all possibilities and ideas to canned left versus right belief systems and divides them into two mutually antagonistic political tribes.</p><p>American politics has degenerated into a pugnacious partisan contest between an increasingly unprincipled, entrenched duopoly less concerned with the nation&#8217;s general welfare than with gaining and retaining power for the party and its clients &#8212; the various forces of greed and of grievance.</p><p>Bitter partisan intransigence had reduced <a href="https://www.congress.gov" rel="nofollow" class="external">Congress</a> into an ineffectual rabble so focused on denigrating and diminishing the other party that nothing positive gets accomplished. Caught up in its partisan paroxysms, Congress seems unconcerned that it has surrendered much of its constitutional power to the executive branch.</p><p>Presidents now increasingly &#8220;rule&#8221; by fiat. Without the consent of Congress, a president can effectively commit the nation to war, make and break international commitments, invoke trade tariffs, redirect public funds, impose or repeal regulations, and increasingly ignore procedural norms and legal restrictions.</p><p>Goodall might well agree that now more than ever in human history we need rational, intelligent, ethical leadership around the world, and especially in America, which despite its current dysfunctional political conditions and tarnished status is still the world&#8217;s bell cow.</p><p>The globally vital importance of exceptionally virtuous, rational and intelligent American leadership is clearly confirmed by the lack of it in Trump&#8217;s peculiar presidency.</p><p>Americans not intellectually disabled by partisan politics and ideological idiocy need to step up now and put exceptionally good people in positions of leadership, and restore our fraying constitutional republic.</p><p><em>&#8212; Randy Alcorn is a Santa Barbara political observer.

The attacks were orchestrated by cyber-extortionists who took advantage of outdated software security mechanisms to freeze thousands of computers and basic communication functions, resulting in disruption of several key municipal operations.</p><p>While the hackers behind this operation remain unidentified, these same vulnerabilities represent an open door for nation-state cyber-attacks on state, federal and national infrastructure. In the current environment, the homeland is easy picking for even novice hackers, let alone nation-state actors.</p><p>In many ways, nation-state cyber-wars are already well underway. The lack of established international norms means that many cyber-attacks fall into a gray area below the threshold of total war. By exploiting this uncertainty, nation-state actors, such as Russia, Iran and China&#160;continue to&#160;pose&#160;serious risks to U.S. national security, including threats to critical infrastructure (CI) assets&#160;that support transportation, food delivery, utilities and commerce in general.</p><p>Losing water or power for even a short while can cause a shock to people&#8217;s sense of security.&#160;Furthermore, any real or perceived tampering with the nation&#8217;s&#160;electoral process could be equally shattering to Americans&#8217; sense of freedom.</p><p>The U.S. government has been faced with the need to implement a sustainable cybersecurity strategy to ensure national security objectives amid the ever-changing landscape of cyberwarfare. Three questions remain at the focus of this discussion: Who are the primary threat actors in this arena? Why are CI assets increasingly susceptible to attack? What actions or policies can the U.S. execute to achieve more comprehensive security in this area?</p><p>Russian cyber-attacks would appear to represent the paramount threat to U.S. critical infrastructure. Russian hacking operations have included major components of cyberwarfare activities, including cyber espionage and influence operations. Some of these hacking units have operated as a function of Russia&#8217;s Federal Security Service while others have been backed by the Russian military intelligence agency, the GRU.</p><p>As&#160;<a href="https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA18-074A" rel="nofollow" class="external">reported</a>&#160;by DHS and the FBI, the Russian government has executed deliberate intrusions into U.S. CI since at least 2011. These systems have not only included government entities and energy infrastructure but also commercial facilities, water resource plants and aviation institutions.</p><p>Deep within Russia&#8217;s cyberwarfare apparatus is an organization&#160;<a href="https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/10/04/unit26165-russias-elite-military-hacking-centre/" rel="nofollow" class="external">known as Unit&#160;26165</a>. The unit is a specialized group within the GRU&#8217;s signals intelligence arm. The organization is dedicated to actively targeting military, political, governmental and non-governmental organizations with &#8220;spear-phishing&#8221; emails and other computer intrusion attacks. Agents in Unit 26165 have operated internationally,&#160;<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/how-russias-military-intelligence-agency-became-the-covert-muscle-in-putins-duels-with-the-west/2018/12/27/2736bbe2-fb2d-11e8-8c9a-860ce2a8148f_story.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">conducting hacking operations</a>&#160;through methods such as onsite attacks against the Wi-Fi networks of target organizations.</p><p>As indicated by the Mueller Report, significant effects can be felt with even small-scale nefarious activity. In 2017, the Department of Homeland Security&#160;<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the%20fix/wp/2017/09/23/what%20we%20know%20about%20the%2021%20states%20targeted%20by%20russian%20hackers/?utm_term=.a7bef2e03df0" rel="nofollow" class="external">announced</a>&#160;that 21 states had been targeted by Russian efforts to hack their election systems in 2016. In seven of these states, Russian hackers gained access to systems that granted the ability to change and delete voter registration data.</p><p>In July 2018, Mueller&#160;<a href="https://www.justice.gov/file/1080281/download" rel="nofollow" class="external">indicted 12 Russian military intelligence officers</a>&#160;from the GRU for breaking into the Democratic National Committee&#8217;s email servers, stealing information and leaking it through special online sites as well as through WikiLeaks. In April 2019, FBI Director Christopher Wray&#160;<a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/26/politics/christopher-wray-russia-intelligence-threat/index.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">spoke</a>&#160;to the &#8220;significant counterintelligence threat&#8221; posed by the potential Russian interference in the 2020 U.S. elections. These hacks combined with social media influence operations of the Russian company Internet Research Agency have posed a persistent threat to the American democratic process.</p><p>Russian hacking operations also have&#160;<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2018/11/05/hackers-are-using-malware-to-find-vulnerabilities-in-u-s-swing-states-expect-cyberattacks/" rel="nofollow" class="external">capitalized on vulnerabilities</a>&#160;in U.S. cyber defenses&#160;in powerplants. In many&#160;plants, physical and manual control systems have been upgraded to electronic operating systems and IT has been incorporated into all processes. Once IT is adopted in a system, it can be a struggle to stay current and maintain the latest IT with up-to-date security.</p><p>As seen in Baltimore, this deficiency is certainly found in municipal IT systems used to sustain governance. For the sake of efficiency, many infrastructure facilities, like water treatment plants, can now be operated remotely via the internet. As this Internet of Things continues to expand within industrial control sectors, the attack surface for nefarious actors has exponentially grown. While many CI organizations have leveraged new technology and connectivity solutions to increase operational efficiency, basic cybersecurity protections such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems&#160;<a href="https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/niac-securing-cyber-assets-final-report-508.pdf" rel="nofollow" class="external">have not been effectively prioritized and integrated</a>&#160;in many cases.</p><p>The DHS Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team highlights&#160;<a href="https://ics-cert.us-cert.gov/sites/default/files/recommended_practices/NCCIC_ICS-CERT_Defense_in_Depth_2016_S508C.pdf" rel="nofollow" class="external">three primary cybersecurity vulnerabilities</a>&#160;that have been exploited in attacks against domestic CI.</p><p>The first vulnerability is found in the lack of effective software security. Many CI systems lack the necessary degree of secure software design and coding practices, resulting in &#8220;man-in-the-middle&#8221; attacks, unvalidated user inputs, and information leakage through vulnerable custom CI web services.</p><p>The second vulnerability is found in the improper<strong>&#160;</strong>configuration and maintenance of operating systems. When IT security personnel fail to deliver needed patches for operating systems or neglect the correct security options, systems become more vulnerable to malicious actors. Furthermore, the use of weak and default passwords as well as over-privileged users can result in compromised access and agent intrusion.</p><p>The third vulnerability is found within network security. By leaving network connections open or failing to effectively implement network segmentation within the expanding Internet of Things, CI information systems have built up larger attack surfaces and more easily fallen prey to hackers. Additionally, weak enforcement of remote login policies create significant vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers who seek to gain access to a user connection over an unsecured network, such as an open Wi-Fi hotspot.</p><p>Recently, at the Georgetown University Cybersecurity Law Institute, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Christopher Krebs spoke to the DHS priority of safeguarding industrial control systems against cyberthreats. He called domestic CI information technology infrastructure the &#8220;real frontier&#8221; in the cyber-threat environment. Gaining a stronger footing within CI cybersecurity could depend on an assessment and achieved understanding of the systemic risks and capability gaps. Given the substantial security, economic, and social implications of compromised CI, protecting from and responding to relevant cyber threats remain key priorities for both U.S. policymakers and intelligence agencies.</p><p>If the problems above seem overwhelming, that is because the outlook is indeed poor from a purely defensive standpoint. Offensive cyber operations maintain the advantage over (largely) defensive operations due to the element of surprise and the pace of technological refresh that continues to create new backdoors. However, as described in a recent&#160;<a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/15/us/politics/trump-cyber-russia-grid.html?action=click&amp;module=Top%20Stories&amp;pgtype=Homepage" rel="nofollow" class="external">New York Times article</a>,&#160;the United States is now actively responding to Russia&#8217;s incursion on U.S. CI with its own attacks on Russian power plants. As famed political scientist Robert Axelrod might argue, this is&#160;<a href="http://www-personal.umich.edu/~axe/research/Axelrod%20and%20Hamilton%20EC%201981.pdf" rel="nofollow" class="external">tit-for-tat</a>,&#160;and could actually be effective in theory.</p><p>The DHS has&#160;<a href="https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/DHS-Cybersecurity-Strategy_1.pdf" rel="nofollow" class="external">offered</a>&#160;sound guidance toward development of a more robust cybersecurity strategy&#160;for the homeland&#160;that focuses on better defenses. Specifically, DHS has proposed that the United States seek to build deeper partnerships with industry to foster an aligned cybersecurity ecosystem. This partnership could enable more effective collaboration and information sharing.</p><p>Additionally, DHS has encouraged the accelerated use of innovative and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, with an eye toward protecting CI. Furthermore, DHS has determined that the effects of cyber-attacks against CI could be better mitigated through the creation of comprehensive playbooks to unify government actions across defense, homeland security, law enforcement, intelligence and state agencies.&#160;This could drive&#160;uniformity in action across the national security enterprise&#160;for defensive measures.</p><p>This is all good.&#160;But for today&#8217;s undeclared (but hot) cyber war with Russia,&#160;assertive and active offensive operations (along with enhanced defensive actions) could be one way for &#160;the United States&#160;to fight back smartly and win.</p></div></div> Turkish civil society leaders on trial over 2013 protests https://www.france24.com/en/20190624-turkish-civil-society-leaders-trial-over-2013-protests Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:10da249e-8161-ec1c-6953-ad12fb3d94fa Mon, 24 Jun 2019 07:10:13 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0;

we traded our data in exchange for using "free" sites like Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube and Twitter. Warner says he wants consumers to be more informed about the real value of what they give up in the form of, for example, location data, relationship status, data about the apps we use, our age, gender and lifestyle. </p><blockquote>"These companies take enormous, enormous amounts of data about us... If you're an avid Facebook user, chances are Facebook knows more about you than the U.S. government knows about you. People don't realize one, how much data is being collected; and two, they don't realize how much that data is worth."</blockquote><cite>&#8212; Sen. Mark Warner on "Axios on HBO"</cite><p><strong>Between the lines:</strong> The point of the bill is to help consumers understand what they may be giving up when they click on "I agree" and hold tech companies to a higher level of transparency.</p><ul><li>Individuals wouldn't get any sort of pay-out for the use of their data.</li><li>The value of an individual's data is the <a href="https://medium.com/wibson/how-much-is-your-data-worth-at-least-240-per-year-likely-much-more-984e250c2ffa" rel="nofollow" class="external">subject of some debate</a>. Warner says it's probably around $5 a month, while other estimates put it around $20 a month. It could be more, depending on the type of data collected. </li></ul><p><strong>How it works:</strong> The legislation will be introduced Monday as the Designing Accounting Safeguards to Help Broaden Oversight and Regulations on Data Act, or DASHBOARD for short. </p><ul><li>The bill would require companies that generate material revenue from data collection or processing &#8212; and have more than 100 million monthly users &#8212; to disclose to users the types of data collected, how it is used, and to provide an assessment of the value of that data once every 90 days. </li><li>It would require these companies to disclose annually to the Securities and Exchange Commission the aggregate value of all of their users' data. The report would have to include details of contracts with third parties for data collection, how revenue is generated by user data, and measures taken to protect that data.</li><li>The bill would direct the SEC to develop methods for calculating the value of user data, accounting for varying uses, sectors, and business models. </li><li>Companies must provide a setting or tool for users to delete all or part of their data.</li></ul><p><strong>The other side: </strong>Tech companies are reluctant to disclose specifics of how users data is gathered, shared and sold. There's little chance they'll be interested in putting a dollar figure on how much that data &#8212; the core of their business &#8212; is actually worth to them. </p><ul><li><strong>Some have argued</strong> it's not possible to calculate the exact value of specific pieces of data in a high-volume marketplace across an industry that uses data across dozens of platforms, all delivering different services with different business models. </li><li><strong>"Boloney," Warner said of that defense.</strong> "I mean if these companies &#8212; go back to Facebook &#8212; can do all these acquisitions and many of these acquisitions were made on what appeared to be outrageous prices &#8212; they had a pretty darn good notion of how they could use that data and how much that was worth from one platform to another."</li></ul><p><strong>Despite more aggressive calls to break up Big Tech</strong>, Warner said he's not yet sure that's necessary, as long as Silicon Valley is receptive to more tailored measures like this bill. </p><ul><li>Warner told "Axios on HBO" he plans to introduce a separate bill "in a few weeks" that would require tech firms to <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-tech-warner/u-s-senator-warner-eyes-social-media-bills-for-hate-speech-data-portability-idUSKCN1RN314" rel="nofollow" class="external">make data portable </a>so consumers can move it from one platform to another. </li><li>He's also sponsored legislation to <a href="https://www.niemanlab.org/2017/10/the-honest-ads-act-would-force-internet-companies-to-change-their-disclosure-practices-by-january-2018/" rel="nofollow" class="external">improve online political ad disclosures,</a> and to <a href="https://www.axios.com/scoop-senators-target-the-ways-the-web-tricks-you-1554761685-0d393953-967d-4362-954d-08bcf5ad27c3.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">ban social media sites from tricking users</a> into giving up their data.</li><li>"If they're not willing to work with us on this kind of, I think, rational, focused reform, then I may very quickly join the crowd that simply says, 'you know, let's break them up,'" he said.

Hundreds of people viewed the footage live on Facebook and YouTube and millions of copies have reportedly been shared since the attack.</p><p>After Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern denounced the sharing of the video, it was classified as &#8220;objectionable&#8221; by New Zealand&#8217;s Chief Censor David Shanks soon after the attack, as was Tarrant&#8217;s fascist <a href="https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/03/26/mani-m26.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">manifesto</a>. Under these anti-democratic restrictions anyone caught in possession of the footage or the document can be imprisoned for as long as 14 years.</p><p>Arps pleaded guilty to sharing the video on social media. He had also posted numerous comments glorifying the massacre, including a suggestion that a &#8220;kill count&#8221; be added to the video. A hardened fascist, Arps reportedly possessed copies of Hitler&#8217;s <em>Mein Kampf</em> and compared himself to Rudolf Hess, a leading figure in the Nazi Party.</p><p>Arps&#8217; views are repugnant, but it would be a very dangerous error to believe that his imprisonment will do anything to stop the growth of the extreme right-wing movements, which have been deliberately promoted by the political establishment and protected by the state, including the police and courts.</p><p>Arps was not jailed for making violent threats against Muslims, although he has done so in the past, but simply for sharing a banned video.</p><p>His trial represents a test case for anti-democratic legislation that can and will be used against the working class, especially its most conscious left-wing and socialist elements. The laws under which Arps was charged are part of a broader turn towards police state forms of rule, directed against mounting opposition to social inequality, authoritarianism and war.</p><p>The sentencing of Arps has been universally praised in the New Zealand media, which is hypocritically denouncing racism and seeking to wash its hands of any responsibility for promoting nationalism and xenophobia.</p><p>The same media glorified Ardern&#8217;s phony display of &#8220;compassion&#8221; following the Christchurch attack, despite the fact that the anti-Muslim NZ First Party plays a major role in her Labour Party-led coalition government. NZ First leader Winston Peters, who is both deputy prime minister and foreign minister, has ranted on numerous occasions against Muslim immigration, in language similar to that used by Brenton Tarrant.</p><p>News outlets have also heavily promoted racist provocateurs such as Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux, who visited from Canada last year, and Brian Tamaki whose fundamentalist Destiny Church staged an anti-Muslim rally outside the Al Noor mosque, after the terrorist attack.</p><p>At least eight other people have reportedly been brought before the courts for possession or distribution of the mosque attacks video. The accused&#8217;s names and many other details have been suppressed, but they include a 17-year-old, two 18-year-olds and one aged 22. One of the teenagers had made threats against the Al Noor mosque, but it is not clear that all those arrested have fascist and racist views.</p><p>Many thousands of people shared the video during and after the Christchurch attack, the overwhelming majority of whom were horrified by its contents and wanted to alert others to the appalling magnitude of the crime. Ardern herself has said she came across the video in her Facebook feed.</p><p>Countless journalists also watched the video and excerpts appeared in the media internationally, including on Australian television. In New Zealand, reporting that includes Tarrant&#8217;s video has effectively been criminalised.</p><p>The banning of the video and manifesto will not prevent their circulation in extreme right-wing circles. As Chief Censor Shanks admitted, censorship has given the manifesto &#8220;cachet&#8221; among fascists internationally.</p><p>The corporate media is complicit in this censorship. After Ardern personally urged reporters not to focus on Tarrant, and pledged to never speak his name, five NZ media organisations signed an extraordinary agreement to <a href="https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/05/23/chri-m23.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">self-censor</a> their coverage of his trial to avoid any reference to his racist ideology and manifesto.</p><p>The censorship is aimed at severely restricting public scrutiny and discussion of the terrorist attack, its political causes, and the role of the police and intelligence agencies in failing to prevent New Zealand&#8217;s worst mass shooting.</p><p>The manifesto&#8217;s racist, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim language resembles the right-wing nationalist rhetoric used by the Trump administration and many other governments, including the Labour Party-NZ First coalition. It also highlights Tarrant&#8217;s hatred of Marxism and socialism and his sympathy for the military and police.</p><p>As the WSWS has <a href="https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/03/27/four-m27.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">noted</a>, the 17-minute video raises serious questions about why Tarrant was not stopped. It shows the gunman driving for several minutes to the Al Noor mosque after publicly announcing his intentions on Facebook and a fascist <em>8chan</em> forum, with his gun visible in the car. Tarrant was able to kill dozens of people before driving to a second mosque, without being stopped by police, to continue his massacre.</p><p>The Christchurch attack could only happen because the state ignored violent threats from the extreme right. In 2017, Dunedin police dismissed a complaint about racist and violent discussions at the Bruce Rifle Club, where Tarrant was a member. The previous year, Australian police dismissed a complaint from someone in Melbourne who received a death threat from Tarrant.</p><p>Arps has 30 previous convictions, including for assault. In 2016 he and several other fascists dumped a box of pigs&#8217; heads outside Al Noor mosque. He then shared a video of himself threatening to kill Muslims on social media. For that crime Arps was merely fined $800 for &#8220;offensive behaviour&#8221; and nothing was done to protect the mosque from attacks.</p><p>Ardern is playing a leading role in a global <a href="https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/05/18/chch-m18.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">campaign</a> to exploit the Christchurch attacks to ban &#8220;violent&#8221; and &#8220;extremist&#8221; content from social media. Already, the Australian government has passed a law allowing social media executives to be prosecuted and imprisoned if they fail to remove content that is deemed objectionable.</p><p>Ardern falsely claimed that removing such videos will reduce the danger of terrorism and is not censorship. What constitutes &#8220;extremist&#8221; material, however, will be decided by the state in collaboration with giant corporations such as Facebook. Such laws can easily be used to censor any videos or pictures of violence, for instance exposing war crimes or police shootings, and imprison those sharing such material.</p><p>Fascism cannot be combated by strengthening the forces of the state, including the police, military, intelligence agencies and the judicial system, which exist to protect capitalism and suppress the working class.</p><p>Today, amid economic turmoil and the rising danger of war, the state is again nurturing fascist forces, including in <a href="https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/11/17/germ-n17.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">Germany</a> and the <a href="https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/05/04/nzws-m04.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">US</a>, to be mobilised against the working class.

But as technologically impressive as these new techniques are, I worry that focusing on the &#8220;state of the art&#8221; is a distraction from a deeper problem.</p><p>To understand why, consider the most high-profile example of manipulated media to spread online to date: the doctored video of the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, made to seem as if she was <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/may/24/facebook-leaves-fake-nancy-pelosi-video-on-site" rel="nofollow" class="external">drunkenly slurring her speech</a>. Far from being created by a technically savvy operator misappropriating the fruits of a &#8220;technological revolution&#8221;, it was <a href="https://www.thedailybeast.com/we-found-shawn-brooks-the-guy-behind-the-viral-drunk-pelosi-video" rel="nofollow" class="external">made</a> using rudimentary editing techniques by a sports blogger and avid pro-Trumper from the Bronx named Shawn Brooks.</p><p>The reason this fake video spread so far and wide was not because it was technologically advanced, or even particularly visually compelling, but because of the cynical nature of social media. When a platform&#8217;s business model is to maximize engagement time in order to sell ad revenue, divisive, shocking and conspiratorial content gets <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/10/opinion/sunday/youtube-politics-radical.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">pushed</a> to the top of the feed. Like other trolls, Brooks&#8217;s most salient skill was understanding and exploiting these dynamics.</p><p>Indeed, the Pelosi video demonstrated just how symbiotic and mutually beneficial the fake news-platform relationship has become. Facebook <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/may/24/facebook-leaves-fake-nancy-pelosi-video-on-site" rel="nofollow" class="external">refused</a> to take down the altered video, noting that its content policy does not require a post to be true. (Facebook did &#8220;reduce&#8221; the video&#8217;s distribution in the news feed, in an attempt at harm minimization.) The reality is that divisive content is, from a financial perspective, a win for social media platforms. As long as that logic underpins our online lives, cynical media manipulators will continue to exploit it to spread social discord, with or without machine learning.</p><p>And herein lies the problem: by formulating deepfakes as a technological problem, we allow social media platforms to promote technological solutions to those problems &#8211; cleverly distracting the public from the idea that there may be more fundamental problems with powerful <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/silicon-valley" rel="nofollow" class="external">Silicon Valley</a> tech platforms.</p><p>We have seen this before. When Congress interrogated Mark Zuckerberg last year about Facebook&#8217;s privacy problems and involvement in spreading fake news, instead of reflecting on structural issues at the company, Zuckerberg repeatedly <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2018/4/13/17235042/facebook-mark-zuckerberg-ai-artificial-intelligence-excuse-congress-hearings" rel="nofollow" class="external">assured</a> Congress that technological solutions that would fix everything were just over the horizon. Zuckerberg mentioned AI more than 30 times.</p><p>Underpinning all of this is what Evgeny Morozov has <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/mar/09/evgeny-morozov-technology-solutionism-interview" rel="nofollow" class="external">called</a> &#8220;technological solutionism&#8221;: an ideology endemic to Silicon Valley that reframes complex social issues as &#8220;neatly defined problems with definite, computable solutions &#8230; if only the right algorithms are in place!&#8221; This highly formal, systematic, yet socially myopic mindset is so pervasive within the tech industry that it has become a sort of meme. How do we solve wealth inequality? Blockchain. How do we solve political polarization? AI. How do we solve climate change? A blockchain powered by AI.</p><p>This constant appeal to a near-future of perfectly streamlined technological solutions distracts and deflects from the grim realities we presently face. While Zuckerberg promised better AI for content moderation in front of Congress last year, reports have since emerged that much content moderation still <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/25/18229714/cognizant-facebook-content-moderator-interviews-trauma-working-conditions-arizona" rel="nofollow" class="external">relies</a> on humans, who are subjected to highly traumatic content and terrible working conditions. By talking incessantly about AI-powered content moderation, the company diverts attention away from this real human suffering.</p><p>The &#8220;solutionist&#8221; ideology has also influenced the discourse around how to deal with doctored media. The solutions being proposed are often technological in nature, from &#8220;digital watermarks&#8221; to new machine learning forensic techniques. To be sure, there are many experts who are doing important security research to make the detection of fake media easier in the future. This is important and worthwhile. But on its own, it is unclear that this would help fix the deep-seated social problem of truth decay and polarization that social media platforms have played a major role in fostering.</p><p>The biggest problem with technological solutionism is that it can be used as a smokescreen for deep structural problems in the technology industry, as well as a strategy for stymieing precisely the type of political interventions that need to happen to curtail the singular power that these companies have in controlling how we access information.</p><p>If we continue to frame deepfakes as a technological problem instead of something rotten at the core of the attention economy, we leave ourselves just as vulnerable in 2020 to misinformation as we were in 2016.</p><ul> <li><p>Oscar Schwartz is a freelance writer and researcher based in New York</p></li> </ul></div></div> Michael Flynn Latest: Will He Get a Pardon From President Trump? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-24/flynn-s-new-attorney-may-have-one-task-win-a-pardon-from-trump Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:b5c1f919-7126-bcfb-af63-4a7ffb53a12b Mon, 24 Jun 2019 06:11:29 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/michael-flynn-latest/0:a00761">shared this story</a> .</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div><p>Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn may have a singular goal in replacing his longtime criminal defense attorneys this month with the politically provocative Sidney Powell -- to win a pardon from his old boss, President Donald Trump.</p><p>&#8220;This is for an audience of one,&#8221; former federal prosecutor Jeffrey Cramer said of Powell&#8217;s hiring.</p><div></div><div></div><p>Flynn, a retired U.S. Army general who admitted he lied to government investigators and awaits sentencing, shed the legal team that represented him since the case began in 2017. Powell is scheduled to make her first appearance for Flynn at a status conference Monday in Washington before U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan.</p><div></div><p>Powell, an ex-federal prosecutor, has been a caustic critic of the U.S. Justice Department and Special Counsel Robert Mueller&#8217;s Russia probe. Perhaps more pointedly, two weeks before she was hired, Powell referred to the case against Flynn as &#8220;the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&amp;v=udRqsEa2N9E&amp;feature=youtu.be" title="Link to Epoch Times interview posted May 31." rel="nofollow" class="external">targeted takeout</a> of a very good man.&#8221; She also shares her views on two the president&#8217;s favorite platforms, Fox News and Twitter.</p><p>In a June 13 tweet, Trump cheered Powell&#8217;s hiring, saying Flynn was getting a &#8220;GREAT&#8221; lawyer.</p><div></div><p>&#8220;How can you dispute his decision when you get that reaction and that comment?&#8221; said Ryan Fayhee, a former Justice Department attorney. &#8220;Clearly this is at least in part designed to position Flynn for a pardon.&#8221;</p><p>Courting the president may make sense as a legal strategy because Trump has <a href="https://www.justice.gov/pardon/pardons-granted-president-donald-trump" title="Link to Justice Department’s Trump pardons list." rel="nofollow" class="external">pardoned eight people</a> since March 2018, including anti-immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio, political commentator Dinesh D&#8217;Souza and one-time media mogul Conrad Black, who Cramer helped to convict. Trump hasn&#8217;t pardoned his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, despite repeated public statements by Manafort&#8217;s lawyer that the charges had nothing to do with Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election.</p><p>The reasons for Flynn&#8217;s split with defense attorney Robert Kelner at <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/quote/1175L:US" title="Company Overview" rel="nofollow" class="external">Covington &amp; Burling LLP</a> haven&#8217;t been disclosed in court documents. Kelner told Sullivan only that he was withdrawing because his client had hired new counsel.</p><p>There was some discussion of a potential conflict of interest for Covington during a June 13 federal court hearing in a related illegal lobbying case involving Flynn&#8217;s former business partner, who the general may testify against. According to transcripts of the hearing in Alexandria, Virginia, the discussion involved the law firm&#8217;s role in preparing government documents for the lobbying firm Flynn and his partner owned.</p><h3>Legal Strategy</h3><p>Powell, in an email, said she is &#8220;honored to be representing General Flynn.&#8221; She declined to comment on her legal strategy or why she was hired.</p><div></div><p>The switch in attorneys is unlikely to result in Flynn withdrawing his guilty plea, because he&#8217;s already admitted his wrongdoing in court on multiple occasions, Fayhee and Cramer said. Powell had previously said that Flynn would continue to cooperate with the government.</p><p>Flynn has all but discharged his obligation under the plea agreement to cooperate with the government. He remains a potential witness in the trial slated for next month against his former business partner on charges of illegal lobbying for Turkey, conduct for which Flynn has already admitted guilt, even though he wasn&#8217;t charged with that offense.</p><p>&#8220;As long as that doesn&#8217;t touch the White House and doesn&#8217;t touch Trump, a pardon is still in the works,&#8221; Cramer said. &#8220;That&#8217;s the only reason to change horses in mid-stream, is if you&#8217;re hiring this lawyer with a clear political bent, sending a message to the White House that you don&#8217;t intend on saying anything negative or inculpatory against the president or anyone close to the president.&#8221;</p><h3>Pardon Risks</h3><p>If a pardon is Powell&#8217;s goal, it isn&#8217;t without risks. Among them is that a pardon may not come before the 2020 election, and Flynn may have already served his sentence by then.</p><div></div><p>In December 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to misleading investigators who&#8217;d questioned him at the White House nearly a year earlier about his contacts with then-Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. His conviction was the first obtained under the auspices of the Russia probe even though Mueller had not yet been named special counsel at the time of the FBI interview.</p><p>Flynn agreed to cooperate with Mueller&#8217;s team. In exchange, the special counsel&#8217;s lawyers asked Sullivan to spare the general from incarceration, even as the crime carried a maximum sentence of five years in prison.</p><p>Still, in a sentencing memo filed with the court, Flynn&#8217;s now-former counsel, Kelner, implied that the agents who questioned his client -- one of whom was then-Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok -- had lulled him into believing he was in no legal jeopardy. The judge found that assertion potentially troubling.</p><p>At a Dec. 18 sentencing hearing, Sullivan asked Flynn to reaffirm his plea, including that he believed he was, in fact, guilty and that he was satisfied with the work done by his attorneys. After Kelner assured the judge that he wasn&#8217;t asserting an entrapment defense for his client, Sullivan warned Flynn that he may not get the deal he bargained for.</p><h3>&#8216;Very Serious&#8217;</h3><p>&#8220;I&#8217;m going to be frank with you,&#8221; Sullivan said. &#8220;This crime is very serious. As I stated, it involves false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on the premises of the White House, in the White House in the West Wing by a high-ranking security officer with, up to that point, an unblemished career of service to his country. That&#8217;s a very serious offense.&#8221;</p><div></div><p>Upon learning that the general was still helping prosecutors assemble their case against his former business partner, Sullivan warned Flynn he wouldn&#8217;t get full credit for his cooperation until that task was completed. The sentencing was postponed and has not been rescheduled.</p><p>&#8220;I think that shook Flynn a little bit,&#8221; Cramer said.</p><p>Kelner may have misread how his criticism of the investigators&#8217; tactics would play with Sullivan, Fayhee said. Hiring Powell allows for a reset. Still, an overtly political approach could backfire too, resulting in Sullivan&#8217;s imposition of a stiffer sentence than sought by prosecutors. Paradoxically, that may not matter to Trump, who wields that ultimate power.</p><div></div><p>&#8220;It&#8217;s quite a gamble,&#8221; Fayhee said.</p><p>The case is U.S. v. Flynn, 17-cr-232, U.S. District Court, District of Columbia (Washington).</p></div></div> Maksym Eristavi: Europe is about to rollback key sanctions against Russia | KyivPost https://www.kyivpost.com/article/opinion/op-ed/maksym-eristavi-europe-is-about-to-rollback-key-sanctions-against-russia.html Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:047848ba-3374-0009-6c27-7ce151f6309d Mon, 24 Jun 2019 06:07:19 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/maksym-eristavi-euro/1460078:1a8d4f">shared this story</a> from <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/icons.newsblur.com/1460078.png" style="vertical-align: middle;width:16px;height:16px;"> KyivPost.</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div><div></div><div><div><img src="https://www.kyivpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/000_1FK19E.jpg" width="800" height="551" alt="" /></div></div><p> <em></em> A man holds a placard depicting Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel smiling, and the Nord Stream 2 gas pipe-line, during a rally in front of the German embassy in Kiev, on April 11, 2019. - Demonstrators held an action demanding to stop Germany's attempts to lift sanctions against Russia and to increase pressure to release detained Ukrainian.

I was amazed at that and rather disappointed that the attorney general would say such a thing. The term "spying" has all kinds of negative connotations, and I have to believe he chose that term deliberately. And I think it's incredible that if he has concerns, he would have easily on his first day on the job, after his confirmation, asked his own IG, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, for a briefing on his preliminary, in the course of his investigation, that is, the IG's investigation, whether there was any wrongdoing by the FBI. I think it would have been far more appropriate for him to just defer to that investigation rather than postulating, apparently with no evidence.

Clapper confirms the obvious.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:times new roman,times,serif;">This is James Clapper's interview with Anderson Cooper, which confirms that Obama ordered Strzok to carry out an Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA), which became the basis for the entire Mueller probe.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:times new roman,times,serif;">"If it weren't for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably Special Counsel Mueller's investigation.

In a New York Times article entitled "Justice Department Seeks to Question CIA in its Own Russia Investigation," the IC makes clear its fear of the results of Barr's investigation of their spy operation on candidate Trump in 2016 that continued through his early presidency[.] ...</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:times new roman,times,serif;">John Durham, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, is running the investigation under Barr's direction.

Europe was the first choice for North Africans, while Egyptians, Sudanese and Yemenis favoured the Gulf. North America was the top destination for people in Jordan and Lebanon, according to the survey.</p><p>The figures also revealed that potential migrants would be willing to leave without official papers: more than 40% of Algerians, Sudanese and Tunisians, and 38% of Iraqis, Moroccans and Yemenis said they would leave without formal documentation.</p><p><strong>LGBT RIGHTS</strong></p><p>In the West Bank, only 5% of respondents said it was acceptable to be gay; in Lebanon, the figure was 6%, while in <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/world/iraq" rel="nofollow" class="external">Iraq</a>, Jordan and Tunisia it was 7%. Algeria showed the greatest tolerance, with 26% of respondents expressing no objection to homosexuality.</p><p>For taboo or difficult questions, respondents were asked to select &#8220;acceptable practices&#8221; from a series of options. People believed &#8220;honour&#8221; killings were more acceptable than being gay in all but one of the countries where this question was asked (Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Sudan and Tunisia).</p><p>In Algeria, for example, 26% of respondents said being gay was acceptable, while 27% believed &#8220;honour&#8221; killings were acceptable; in Jordan, the figures were 7% and 21%. Sudan was the only country where a greater number of respondents found homosexuality more acceptable than &#8220;honour&#8221; killings (17% v 14%).</p><p>Dabbous said the responses demonstrated a machismo still heavily prevalent across the region.</p><p>&#8220;Of course &#8216;honour&#8217; killings are more acceptable than homosexuality.

Ducat</p><p><u>The Problem of Diagnosis</u></p><p><img src="https://i2.wp.com/psychoanalyticactivist.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Trump-1.jpg?resize=297%2C298&amp;ssl=1" alt="Trump 1" width="297" height="297" />Debates rage in the increasingly politicized world of mental health clinicians about how to name and understand Trump&#8217;s evident psychopathology. Is he a narcissistic psychopath, a psychopathic narcissist, or simply a ruthless con man who managed to grift his way into business and then into the White House?</p><p>There are those cautious souls that still abide by the &#8220;Goldwater Rule&#8221; a proscription against clinicians diagnosing politicians and others in public life who haven&#8217;t been interviewed directly. This was an attempt by the American Psychiatric Association to prevent the kind of reductive and politically motivated pathologizing that was directed against Barry Goldwater in the 1964 presidential campaign. As it turns out, the rule was an overreaching corrective for an overreaching use of diagnosis. We have a wealth of data on what those in public life do and say in the world, something we don&#8217;t have access to with our patients. Although patients behave in certain ways in the context of treatment, we can only speculate how that translates to other relational contexts.</p><p>Even though we cannot know Trump through a personal analytic transference, we have seen and heard him engaging in a multiplicity of transference-like enactments, and we have witnessed the many countertransference-like&#160;responses he has invoked in others (such as aggressive retaliation and submission, often in the same person). He has shown a particular talent for getting those under him to abandon any moral constraint when those morals interfere with serving his interests. In October of 2017, we witnessed the supposed &#8220;adult in the room,&#8221; presidential Chief of Staff General John Kelly devolve into a more persuasive and articulate but no less mendacious Trumpian mini-me. A Florida Congresswoman, Rep. Frederica Wilson, had overheard on speakerphone Trump&#8217;s callous and thoughtless attempt to console the newly widowed wife of a slain soldier, and dared to criticize the President for his stunning lack of emotional intelligence. Leaping to his boss&#8217;s defense at a press conference, Kelly attacked Wilson&#8217;s character and <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2017/10/30/john-kelly-refuses-to-apologize-for-false-attacks-on-florida-congresswoman/?utm_term=.a7b2e8b3e0bd" rel="nofollow" class="external">fabricated a story</a> about her supposed outrageous behavior at a public event, in spite of readily available news footage of that event that shows Kelly&#8217;s assertion to be an elaborate lie.</p><p>Furthermore, assessing Trump&#8217;s psychology requires little speculation as we have available to us a life-long history of personal, romantic, business, and political relationships. With the exception of some of his predatory and criminal behavior, he has led his entire life in public. We know what he says and how he says it. Through his own words Trump has even let us in on what provokes him to act &#8211; primarily vengeance, vainglory, lust, greed, and an obsession with domination.&#160;It has been on this public stage, not behind closed doors, where we have witnessed him reward anyone who flatters him and punish those who fail to do so. His daily Twitter tantrums have constituted a kind of ongoing characterological EEG reading, as if the vicissitudes of his personality disorder produced brain waves that could be converted into a text form readable by all.</p><p>To discuss and explore his obvious psychopathology &#8211; a malignant narcissism and psychopathy that threatens us all &#8211; is not to adopt the Soviet-style use of psychiatric diagnosis in the service of political repression. Rather, as I will argue, it is understanding that can be put to emancipatory purposes. This is because knowing his psychology is central to the project of resisting his policies, and to the task of understanding his appeal to a significant plurality of Americans. If the central thesis of this essay is correct, that Trump&#8217;s pathology is isomorphic with his brand, then what may look to some of us as signs and symptoms of profound impairment is precisely what makes him the object of near delirious veneration on the part of his base. As he well understands, to them he can do no wrong. Or, rather, every wrong he commits is righteous. This will be unpacked in the next section.</p><p>Allen Frances, a former editor of the DSM, <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/14/opinion/an-eminent-psychiatrist-demurs-on-trumps-mental-state.html?_r=0" rel="nofollow" class="external">argues</a> against the tendency of some inside and outside the mental health field to apply diagnostic categories to an understanding of Trump. He insists that because Trump&#8217;s personality traits do not seem to bring him suffering and have made him quite successful, this militates against evaluating him in terms of psychopathology. However, in taking this position, Frances illustrates one of the many weaknesses of the DSM, a pseudo-empirical insurance coding guidebook of little clinical utility.</p><p>In this case, he ignores a central feature of personality disorders &#8211; their ego-syntonic nature. In other words, the behavior of such patients is untroublingly congruent with how they want to see themselves. This is especially the case with narcissism. Furthermore, it is not that &#8220;successful&#8221; narcissists, like Trump do not suffer distress. Rather, it is that their psychic pain is hidden behind the central preoccupations that mark their character: a ceaseless obsession with zero-sum status competition, a desperate Sisyphean pursuit of admiration that is never satisfied, and an unrelenting series of vendettas against those who have questioned his greatness. Like most narcissists, Trump would never seek treatment for his character &#8211; not because he doesn&#8217;t suffer, but because he locates that suffering in the failures of others to affirm his most grandiose self-image.</p><p>Fortunately for Trump, he is wealthy and privileged enough to get others to accommodate his pathology rather than challenge it. In fact, a December 2017 <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/09/us/politics/donald-trump-president.html?hp&amp;action=click&amp;pgtype=Homepage&amp;clickSource=story-heading&amp;module=first-column-region&amp;region=top-news&amp;WT.nav=top-news" rel="nofollow" class="external"><em>New York Times</em> profile</a> of Trump, drawn from 60 sources, advisors, aides, and political allies, fills in the details of a picture many can see from a distance: a petulant, brittle, and impulsive baby-man, a mad king who must be managed by a large team of courtiers and <img src="https://i2.wp.com/psychoanalyticactivist.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Trump-2.jpg?resize=317%2C319&amp;ssl=1" alt="Trump 2" width="317" height="318" />sycophants whose main task is to protect him from his own actions. Functioning as a kind of fun house mirror in reverse, they render his deficits and dysfunctions as admirable virtues. For example, to counter the accusation that Trump is a perpetrator of fake news and a relentless fount of confabulation and conspiracy mongering, those who serve him affirm the notion that he is instead the long-suffering victim of and noble crusader against the &#8220;fake media&#8221; and lies of liberals. His loyal coterie of buffers and fluffers, seem to operate as a kind of auxiliary component of his personality disorder, ensuring that his impulses and actions remain ego-syntonic and his sense of self-importance remains sufficiently inflated.</p><p><u>From Personality Disorder to Brand to Political Order</u></p><p>One of the remarkable features of Trump&#8217;s personality is the way it has come to saturate, in fact, define his brand as a businessman and now as a politician. As Naomi Klein has pointed out in her <a href="https://www.amazon.com/No-Not-Enough-Resisting-Politics/dp/1608468909/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&amp;qid=1512876301&amp;sr=8-1" rel="nofollow" class="external">new book</a>, the essence of the Trump brand is not simply wealth and power but <em>impunity</em>, which is what that wealth and power have bought him. Such impunity becomes an even more useful currency when congealed in his brand, which becomes the semiotic carrier of the fantasy of being able to &#8220;do anything,&#8221; as he bragged in the infamous Access Hollywood tape. During the campaign Trump expressed a more murderous vision of his moral if not legal indemnity when <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jan/24/donald-trump-says-he-could-shoot-somebody-and-still-not-lose-voters" rel="nofollow" class="external">he said</a> he could &#8220;stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody&#8221; and &#8220;not lose voters.&#8221;</p><p>For him, of course, it has not been just a fantasy. While impunity is deeply <em>felt</em> by Trump, it is also realized in the external world. Ms. Klein has detailed how his administration has been able to function as an unapologetic kleptocracy and a heretofore unconstrained one. As I see it, he has transformed a personality disorder into a brand and from there into a form of rule, an entire regime of psychopathy.</p><p>The fact that Trump and his family have enriched themselves by outsourcing the production of their products and real estate development projects to manufacturers and builders that use sweatshop and slave labor has not stopped him from being able to depict himself as an America Firster and a working-class hero. And frank treason has not impeded his efforts to portray himself as an uber-patriot.</p><p>His life of salacious debauchery, greed, and marital infidelity has not diminished the gushing enthusiasm with which he is greeted by the Christian Right. In the case of Trump, these good Christians do not merely defer to Caesar; they worship him. Some evangelical leaders compared him to Churchill, arguing that Trump <a href="https://www.vox.com/2017/10/4/16346800/donald-trump-christian-right-conservative-clinton" rel="nofollow" class="external">&#8220;may be profane but ordained.&#8221;</a> The mantle of God&#8217;s imperfect vessel was passed to former Alabama judge Roy Moore during his 2017 Senatorial race. He, like Trump, faced numerous sexual assault allegations. (In Moore&#8217;s case, some involved underage girls.) And like Trump, Moore denied everything and attacked his accusers. As with many Trump clones on the Right, the Moore scandal illustrates the extent to which impunity, at least among pious Republicans, is conferred upon those who disclaim any accountability for their actions. While Moore lost the Senatorial race against Doug Jones, it was by a narrow margin. And, he enjoyed the enthusiastic support from the President who made robocalls on Moore&#8217;s behalf. In addition, the Republican National Committee, the executive arm of the &#8220;family values&#8221; party, resolved their earlier ambivalence about backing an accused pedophile, and gave him a full-throated endorsement prior to the election.</p><p>In the case of Trump, his Teflon exoskeleton is even slipperier than the one attributed to Ronald Reagan. One could argue that the Trump &#8220;T&#8221; emblazoned across the top of his phallic buildings fundamentally stands for Teflon. He is the spokesmodel for impunity &#8211; impunity for sexual assault, for stiffing contractors, for wage theft, for providing investment safe havens to laundered Russian mob money, for proudly embracing murderous autocrats around the world, and for alternately denying and celebrating Putin&#8217;s corruption of our elections. In addition, at least among his supporters, Trump evinces impunity for praising the virtues of Nazis and white supremacists, for blaming Puerto Rican hurricane victims for their suffering and mocking their plight with Marie Antoinette-like &#8220;gifts&#8221; of paper towels tossed into desperate crowds, for exalting sadism and belligerence into noble virtues, and for compulsively and ceaselessly lying about both trivial and profound matters. In some ways, the latter, the normalization and acceptance of his lying, may be the most impactful and defining aspect of impunity in the present era.</p><p><u>&#8220;How Many Fingers, Winston?</u><u>&#8221;</u></p><p>In the reign of Trump, we have witnessed the emergence of a paradoxical species of disinformation, the open cover-up. It is a lie about something we can all see. It is an attack on our capacity to know what is true, to apprehend reality outside the assertions of the autocracy. It can be about trivial matters, such as inaugural crowd sizes. Or, it can involve more substantive concerns, such as the popular vote or Don Jr.&#8217;s well-published glee over getting the dirt on Hillary Clinton from Putin surrogates.</p><p>&#8220;Orwellian&#8221; is an appellation easily thrown around these days. But in the current moment, the descriptor seems especially apt. In the famous scene in <em>1984</em>, O&#8217;Brien, the interrogator, confronts the prisoner, Winston, &#8220;Whatever the Party holds to be the truth, is truth. It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party.&#8221; What follows is the nightmare exchange burned into all of our memories in which O&#8217;Brien holds up four fingers and insists under the threat of escalating torture that Winston must not only say that he sees five fingers but <em>believe</em> he does. We are now in a world where our masters not only demand obedience but also hysterical blindness. Fortunately for Trump, he has had and continues to have an eager team of well-paid liars, such as Sean Spicer, Kelley Anne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and the entire rogue&#8217;s gallery of Fox News fantasists to share the labor of rewriting reality.</p><p>Astonishingly, in <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/28/us/politics/trump-access-hollywood-tape.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">an episode</a> that could have been scripted by Orwell, Trump even tried to assert, once elected, that the aforementioned Access Hollywood tape, in which he gloated over his special ability to get away with sexual assault, was fake. This was in spite of his prior video-taped campaign admission and perfunctory apology.</p><p>There is an important prehistory to the current administration&#8217;s attack on the possibility of a consensual reality. For many decades, right-wing pundits and politicians have not only lied whenever it suited their purposes but elevated lying itself to a kind of political sacrament and an admirable sign of Machiavellian mastery. Many may recall author Ron Suskind&#8217;s interview with a senior presidential advisor employed by the GW Bush administration that derided journalists as anachronistic members of the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reality-based_community" rel="nofollow" class="external">&#8220;reality-based community.&#8221;</a> He had insisted that the only necessary function of reporters was to be stenographers of those in power &#8211; the movers and shakers whose stories were the only ones worth telling. This was the soil from which a thousand &#8220;alternative facts&#8221; would later bloom. There is no greater impunity than the ability to repudiate reality, and to suffer no consequences for that repudiation.</p><p><u>The Meaning of the Trump Brand</u></p><p>Every brand makes a promise: that the qualities projected onto it, as with totem animals, can be bestowed upon those who purchase the associated products. In fact, the brand functions as a kind of meta-product. Just as a product used to be and still is marketed as a currency that can confer qualities and experiences you might never be able to get on your own &#8211; power, sexiness, glamour, admiration and envy of others, freedom from moral or legal sanction &#8211; the brand can perform this magical transfer without the need for an actual object. The label or logo now embodies the same spiritual essence as the material thing once did &#8211; a fetish that has been liberated from the fetish object itself. The impunity that animates Trump&#8217;s character and life can, in the wishful imagination, be licensed like his brand and inhabit his customers and fans. He is the permissive super-ego who says, &#8220;Since I can do it, so can you.&#8221; His brand thus offers a kind of preemptive pardon (anticipating the legal one he has openly considered for those loyal to him), not just for his cabinet members, his consiglieri and official explainers, but also for his base. The grace of normalization is not just conferred on those white supremacist groups filled with &#8220;good people,&#8221; but also ordinary Americans who no longer have to sublimate their ethnic hatred and misogyny.</p><p>Since the beginning of Trump&#8217;s campaign, incidents of racist verbal and physical assaults and vandalism have not only dramatically escalated but have involved <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/16/us/trump-racial-jeers.html?hp&amp;action=click&amp;pgtype=Homepage&amp;clickSource=story-heading&amp;module=first-column-region&amp;region=top-news&amp;WT.nav=top-news" rel="nofollow" class="external">the use of his name in the text of those attacks</a>. As one businessman said to a Kennedy Airport worker in a hijab, &#8220;Trump is here now. He will get rid of all of you.&#8221; In Connecticut, fans of an all-white high school basketball team hurled racist taunts at the opposing team comprised largely of black and Latino players, and yelled &#8220;Trump! Trump! Trump!&#8221; This incident is <a href="https://www.splcenter.org/20161128/trump-effect-impact-2016-presidential-election-our-nations-schools" rel="nofollow" class="external">one of many similar examples</a> in which the President&#8217;s name has joined the swastika and the Confederate flag as brands signifying unapologetic exterminationist white supremacy.</p><p>At this point, some of my strenuously tolerant liberal readers might assert that not all Trump supporters are racist or contemptuous of various Others. And yet, they voted for someone who <em>was</em>, and cheered rapturously at his rallies. What does it mean to say you are not a bigot but are happy to support someone who is?</p><p>Forgive me for moving to the rhetorical third rail but occasionally Hitler analogies can be clarifying. How might we have regarded &#8220;good Germans&#8221; in the post-Weimar era who looked upon the brash Austrian rabble rouser and his party as simply the sort of nationalist disruptors the country needed? &#8220;Well,&#8221; they might say, &#8220;I don&#8217;t really think Jews are vermin, the principal vectors for all our economic and social maladies, but that Treaty of Versailles was a really bad deal. The Nazis promise to make Germany great again, create jobs, and build that beautiful autobahn. So, I want them in the Reichstag. And, you&#8217;ve got to love that idea of Lebensraum. Who doesn&#8217;t want to stretch out?&#8221;</p><p>Whether you are a bigot or can overlook bigotry in your leaders, the distinction doesn&#8217;t seem to constitute a meaningful difference, especially when it comes to policies those elected leaders get to enact. (For a fuller account of racism, in particular its role in eclipsing class as a driver of political identity, see my essay, &#8220;Tribe vs. Class in the Age of Post-Reality Politics,&#8221; which appeared in the anthology <a href="https://www.amazon.com/River-Fire-Commons-Crisis-Imagination/dp/0984921664/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1477679497&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=river+of+fire+commons" rel="nofollow" class="external"><em>River of Fire: Commons, Crisis, and the Imagination</em></a>.)</p><p><u>Absolute Power, Absolute Impunity</u></p><p>Impunity preempts any need to even imitate, let alone feel, empathy and other emotions common to the rest of the species. For Trump, regret and remorse are affective kryptonite to his singular superpower, untrammeled entitlement. He seems to live by his version of the medieval dictum of <em>le droit du seigneur</em>, the right of the lord. Originally, this referred to the master&#8217;s prerogative to rape any woman living on the land over which he ruled. For Trump, it is a more inclusive privilege and applies to anything and anybody he covets. So, unlike other politicians and CEOs, he cannot allow himself to even <em>insincerely</em> apologize, regardless of whatever short-term political or economic utility it might offer. The long-term damage to his brand would be too great.</p><p>Impunity is linked to another central feature of the Trumplandian universe &#8211; its authoritarianism and admir Psychoanalysis of intelligence operations - Google Search https://www.google.com/search?q=Psychoanalysis+of+intelligence+operations&#38;newwindow=1&#38;rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS733US733&#38;source=lnms&#38;tbm=isch&#38;sa=X&#38;ved=0ahUKEwjJ-aTfpIDjAhWDylkKHeItC0QQ_AUIECgB&#38;biw=1536&#38;bih=722#imgdii=t4D-TbSIJL7Y-M:&#38;imgrc=fEHJoQS9YWzRMM: Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:b67b942e-ae2b-8c65-0863-8dbe2309715e Sun, 23 Jun 2019 15:04:15 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0;

Pallmeyer wrote in her 39-page ruling. &#8220;The defendants&#8217; motion to dismiss are denied,&#8217;&#8217; Pallmeyer wrote.</p></div></div><div><div><p>Firtash, who has past ties to President Donald Trump&#8217;s indicted former campaign manager Paul Manafort, was released on a stunning $174 million bond but ordered to stay in Austria, and extradition proceedings moved forward.</p></div></div><div><div><p>Manafort was indicted in October 2017 on charges of failing to register as an agent of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, a close ally of both Firtash and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and of laundering payments from Ukraine to evade taxes.</p></div></div><div><div><p>Firtash and the case have attracted additional interest due to his past ties to Manafort. Manafort&#8217;s known direct ties to Firtash are limited to discussions over an abandoned New York real estate deal in 2008.</p></div></div><div><div></div></div><div><div><p>Firtash, one of Ukraine&#8217;s most influential oligarchs, was arrested amid the political upheaval in Ukraine in 2014 that led to Russia&#8217;s seizure of the Crimean Peninsula.

that Bernie Sanders had listed here,&#160; are the elements, the prerequisites, and the parts of the HEALTHY Society&#8217;s structure and functions:<br /> &#8220;The right to quality health care, the right to as much education as one needs to succeed in our society, the right to a good job that pays a living wage, the right to affordable housing, the right to a secure retirement, and the right to live in a clean environment.&#8221;<br /> Democracy, as the harmonious balance of forces and processes of the body politic and the governing modes, is the inseparable part of the HEALTHY SOCIETY as the the social organism and the self-regulating and self-organising, sui generis, SYSTEM.<br /> Thus, the TRUE SOCIALISM, by my (Michael Novakhov&#8217;s) definition, can only be the DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM, as evidenced in commonly accepted practices and patterns of functioning of the democratic political systems, primarily minted by the WESTERN CULTURE, and its acceptable versions in other cultures.<br /> This concept is gnostically opposite to Marxism, and it views its dogmas about the primacy of the economic forces (Marxist &#8220;political economy&#8221;), class struggle, and the role of working class, just as such: unscientific, incorrect, counterproductive, and historically dangerous dogmas. Employing their Hegelian &#8220;unity and conflict of the opposites&#8221;, the Marxists, in my humble uneducated opinion, overemphasize the &#8220;conflict&#8221;, and discount the &#8220;unity&#8221;, elaborating on the &#8220;false dichotomies&#8221; of these concept.<br /> The Healthy Society contains both the Social Peace and class harmony, as well as the class tensions and class struggles, in the true mix of the real life complexity.<br /> The biological, psychological, and the social-cultural forces are the true, primary, and natural determinants of the social and historical processes, together with the economic ones. &#8220;Political Economy&#8221;, in a non-Marxian sense, is the Alimentary-Energy System of the Social Organism.<br /> The idea of the Society as the Organism is very old, it descends to Plato, and it is a part of the Western Canon of Ideas, although it is referred to under the different, and sometimes confusing terms, in various sources.<br /> The true leader of the Society, of course is not the Working Class, the most they aspire to become (as a class), is to move upper, to the middle strata, and these tendencies were well studied and well documented.<br /> The true leaders of the Society are the Thinking, the Intellectual classes, in all their varieties, colors, affiliations, philosophies, etc., etc. It is them who move the Society forward. They are the head of the Social Organism.<br /> The elaborations on all these ideas should follow, hopefully.<br /> Michael Novakhov<br /> 9:21 AM 6/23/2019<br /> __________________________________________________________<p></p> <p><a class="custom-logo-link" href="https://trumpandtrumpism.com/" rel="nofollow"><img class="custom-logo" src="https://trumpandtrumpism.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/cropped-Trump-gif.gif" alt="Trump and Trumpism – Review Of News And Opinions" width="240" height="239" /></a></p> <div class="site-title"><a class="external" href="https://trumpandtrumpism.com/" rel="nofollow">Trump and Trumpism &#8211;

request for the FBI to investigate the murder of the dissident journalist <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/world/jamal-khashoggi" rel="nofollow" class="external">Jamal Khashoggi</a>, suggesting it would jeopardise American weapons sales to Saudi Arabia.</p><p>A <a href="https://www.ohchr.org/en/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=24713&amp;LangID=E" rel="nofollow" class="external">report on Khashoggi&#8217;s assassination</a> published last week by the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings said the US should open an FBI inquiry and &#8220;pursue criminal prosecutions within the United States, as appropriate&#8221;.</p><p>But Trump brushed the proposal aside in an interview broadcast by NBC&#8217;s Meet the Press on Sunday.</p><p>Asked if he would allow the FBI to investigate, Trump said: &#8220;I think it&#8217;s been heavily investigated.&#8221;</p><p>Asked who had investigated, the president replied: &#8220;By everybody. I mean &#8230; I&#8217;ve seen so many different reports.&#8221;</p><p>Khashoggi, 59, was killed when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October last year. The UN special rapporteur blamed the Saudi government for the murder and said there was credible evidence that Crown Prince <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/world/mohammed-bin-salman" rel="nofollow" class="external">Mohammed bin Salman</a> and other senior officials were responsible.</p><p>Trump told NBC the murder &#8220;really didn&#8217;t come up&#8221; in a call with the prince on Friday.</p><p>Trump also suggested <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/world/saudiarabia" rel="nofollow" class="external">Saudi Arabia</a> was no worse than other states in the Middle East, which he called a &#8220;vicious, hostile place&#8221;, adding: &#8220;Look at Iran, look at other countries, I won&#8217;t mention names.&#8221;</p><p>The president then cited a drastically overinflated figure for Saudi spending on US weapons that fact-checkers have <a href="https://www.apnews.com/2b4799b3d3ca4f6781efe1e70f207392" rel="nofollow" class="external">previously noted</a> does not match the official record.</p><p>&#8220;I only say they spend $400bn to $450bn over a period of time, all money, all jobs, buying equipment,&#8221; Trump said.</p><p>In fact Saudi Arabia last year signed &#8220;letters of offer and acceptance&#8221; for $14.5bn in military purchases from the US.</p><p>The Senate last week voted to block the Trump administration selling arms to Saudi Arabia, with seven Republicans joining Democrats to pass the measure. Trump has pledged to use his presidential veto and push on with the sales.</p><p>While denying he was saying such purchases were &#8220;the price&#8221; for Khashoggi&#8217;s murder, Trump on Sunday defended his consideration of arms sales in responding to the assassination. Khashoggi was a US resident who wrote for the Washington Post.</p><p>&#8220;I&#8217;m not like a fool that says, &#8216;We don&#8217;t want to do business with them,&#8217;&#8221; Trump said. &#8220;And by the way, if they don&#8217;t do business with us, you know what they do? They&#8217;ll do business with the Russians or with the Chinese &#8230;</p><p>&#8220;We make the best equipment in the world, but they will buy great equipment from Russia and from China.&#8221;</p><div><div><div><p>... like you, are reading and supporting The Guardian&#8217;s independent, investigative journalism than ever before.

What does he gain from this? What is he trying to do?</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Here&#8217;s how Sanders talked about his ideology in a recent speech at George Washington University:</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> <span style="box-sizing: inherit; font-weight: 700;">&#8220;The right to quality health care, the right to as much education as one needs to succeed in our society, the right to a good job that pays a living wage, the right to affordable housing, the right to a secure retirement, and the right to live in a clean environment.&#8221;</span></div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> &#8220;That,&#8221; he continued, &#8220;is what I mean by democratic socialism.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Compare this with the vision of his political hero Eugene Debs, whom Sanders profiled in the 1979 documentary Eugene Debs: Trade Unionist, Socialist, Revolutionary.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> &#8220;Socialism,&#8221; Debs wrote in 1904, &#8220;is first of all a political movement of the working class, clearly defined and uncompromising, which aims at the overthrow of the prevailing capitalist system by securing control of the national government and by the exercise of the public powers, supplanting the existing capitalist class government with socialist administration.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> It is, Debs said, &#8220;the collective ownership and control of industry and its democratic management in the interest of all the people.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> More modern programs for American socialism started from the same place. In his 1978 essay &#8220;What Socialists Would Do in America&#8212;If They Could,&#8221; Michael Harrington, who would co-found the Democratic Socialists of America a few years later, assumed a &#8220;national planning process in which all the people would have an effective right to participate.&#8221; This would include democratically owned and managed property as well as a private sector where &#8220;many of the existing functions of corporate power&#8221; had been socialized.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Sanders has proposed a capital fund controlled by workers at major corporations, but that arrangement lies quite a distance from the direct ownership envisioned by Debs or Harrington. That, Sanders rejects.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> &#8220;The next time you hear me attacked as a socialist, remember this,&#8221; he said in a 2015 speech at Georgetown, &#8220;I don&#8217;t believe the government should own the means of production.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Instead of a Marxist, Sanders likes to frame himself as a New Dealer, an heir to the party of Franklin Roosevelt.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Roosevelt, Sanders said last week, &#8220;led a transformation of the American government and the American economy&#8221; and was &#8220;reviled by the oligarchs of his time,&#8221; who attacked his New Deal programs as &#8220;socialism.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> It&#8217;s clear that Sanders wants to drain those attacks of their power by leaning into them, by saying yes, the New Deal was socialist and that was a good thing. And he is right about the reactionary opposition to Roosevelt. They warned of creeping Bolshevism and imminent revolution under programs like the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Works Progress Administration. But being attacked as a socialist doesn&#8217;t make one a socialist, and neither Roosevelt nor the New Deal was socialist.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Roosevelt came to office a fiscal conservative. He wanted to balance the budget. He also understood, however, that mass unemployment threatened the &#8220;profit system.&#8221; In the face of labor unrest and direct action by industrial workers, he was willing to change course, to meet the activists and movements to his left with policies that satisfied some of their demands.

They are the head of the Social Organism.</p> <p>The elaborations on all these ideas should follow, hopefully.</p> <p>Michael Novakhov</p> <p>9:21 AM 6/23/2019</p> <p><a class="rssdog" href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/" rel="nofollow">Michael Novakhov &#8211; SharedNewsLinks&#8480;</a><a class="rssdog" href="http://www.newsblur.com/social/rss/86178/michael_novakhov" rel="nofollow"><img class="rssdog" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/43/Feed-icon.svg/16px-Feed-icon.svg.png" alt="" /></a><strong><a class="rssdog" href="https://www.nwaonline.com/news/2019/jun/23/bernie-sanders-definition-socialism/" rel="nofollow">Bernie Sanders&#8217; definition of socialism</a></strong><em></em></p> <table width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="36"><img class="rssdog" src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" alt="" /></td> <td width="100%"><strong>Michael_Novakhov&#160;<a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/bernie-sanders-defin/0:95b343" rel="nofollow" class="external">shared this story</a>&#160;.</strong></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <hr /> <div> <div> <p>After watching Bernie Sanders try, for at least the second time, to defend himself as a &#8220;democratic socialist&#8221; by defining &#8220;democratic socialism&#8221; as something that is not actually socialism, I&#8217;m struggling to understand the purpose of it all. What does he gain from this? What is he trying to do?</p> <p>Here&#8217;s how Sanders talked about his ideology in a recent speech at George Washington University:</p> <p><strong>&#8220;The right to quality health care, the right to as much education as one needs to succeed in our society, the right to a good job that pays a living wage, the right to affordable housing, the right to a secure retirement, and the right to live in a clean environment.&#8221;</strong></p> <p>&#8220;That,&#8221; he continued, &#8220;is what I mean by democratic socialism.&#8221;</p> <p>Compare this with the vision of his political hero Eugene Debs, whom Sanders profiled in the 1979 documentary Eugene Debs: Trade Unionist, Socialist, Revolutionary.</p> <p>&#8220;Socialism,&#8221; Debs wrote in 1904, &#8220;is first of all a political movement of the working class, clearly defined and uncompromising, which aims at the overthrow of the prevailing capitalist system by securing control of the national government and by the exercise of the public powers, supplanting the existing capitalist class government with socialist administration.&#8221;</p> <p>It is, Debs said, &#8220;the collective ownership and control of industry and its democratic management in the interest of all the people.&#8221;</p> <p>More modern programs for American socialism started from the same place. In his 1978 essay &#8220;What Socialists Would Do in America&#8212;If They Could,&#8221; Michael Harrington, who would co-found the Democratic Socialists of America a few years later, assumed a &#8220;national planning process in which all the people would have an effective right to participate.&#8221; This would include democratically owned and managed property as well as a private sector where &#8220;many of the existing functions of corporate power&#8221; had been socialized.</p> <p>Sanders has proposed a capital fund controlled by workers at major corporations, but that arrangement lies quite a distance from the direct ownership envisioned by Debs or Harrington. That, Sanders rejects.</p> <p>&#8220;The next time you hear me attacked as a socialist, remember this,&#8221; he said in a 2015 speech at Georgetown, &#8220;I don&#8217;t believe the government should own the means of production.&#8221;</p> <p>Instead of a Marxist, Sanders likes to frame himself as a New Dealer, an heir to the party of Franklin Roosevelt.</p> <p>Roosevelt, Sanders said last week, &#8220;led a transformation of the American government and the American economy&#8221; and was &#8220;reviled by the oligarchs of his time,&#8221; who attacked his New Deal programs as &#8220;socialism.&#8221;</p> <p>It&#8217;s clear that Sanders wants to drain those attacks of their power by leaning into them, by saying yes, the New Deal was socialist and that was a good thing. And he is right about the reactionary opposition to Roosevelt. They warned of creeping Bolshevism and imminent revolution under programs like the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Works Progress Administration. But being attacked as a socialist doesn&#8217;t make one a socialist, and neither Roosevelt nor the New Deal was socialist.</p> <p>Roosevelt came to office a fiscal conservative. He wanted to balance the budget. He also understood, however, that mass unemployment threatened the &#8220;profit system.&#8221; In the face of labor unrest and direct action by industrial workers, he was willing to change course, to meet the activists and movements to his left with policies that satisfied some of their demands. But Roosevelt&#8217;s goal was always preservation: to reform capitalism and harmonize labor and capital, not to forge a replacement.</p> <p>What, then, should we make of Sanders&#8217; decision to embrace a nearly revolutionary label, &#8220;democratic socialism,&#8221; but define it in terms of American left-liberal politics?</p> <p>One answer is that as someone who did live and work in left-wing and Marxist circles for much of his adult life, he wants to bring the term into the mainstream of American politics. To not just embrace the &#8220;socialist&#8221; attacks as a badge of honor but to make &#8220;democratic socialism&#8221; an extension of the New Deal is to make it sound normal, even desirable.</p> <p>More Americans may embrace the label. And because the term still implies a larger set of ideological commitments outside Democratic Party liberalism, some of Sanders&#8217; followers will become bona fide socialists who want that Debsian transformation of economic relations in the United States.</p> <p>It has already happened with the substantial growth of the Democratic Socialists of America since 2016 and an increasing (albeit still small) number of Americans with a positive view of &#8220;socialism,&#8221; including a bare majority of the youngest adults.</p> <p>The term does other political work. It distinguishes him from his rivals in the Democratic primary and suggests he wants to go further than his stated views&#8212;that he&#8217;s also interested in fundamental transformation, even if his program isn&#8217;t more meaningfully progressive than that of his closest ideological rival, Elizabeth Warren.</p> <p>There&#8217;s another way to understand Sanders&#8217; rhetoric around &#8220;democratic socialism.&#8221; For Harold Meyerson of The American Prospect, Sanders embodies the not-always-clear divide between liberals and the left.</p> <p>&#8220;In running as a democratic socialist who seeks to complete and update FDR&#8217;s agenda,&#8221; he writes, &#8220;Sanders straddles the very fuzzy border between social democracy and American left liberalism.&#8221; In both traditions, democracy is an economic project as well as a political one. Perhaps Sanders is just trying to make that explicit&#8212;to once and for all marginalize the centrist Democratic Party politics of the past three decades, in which the economic rights of workers were subordinate to the demands of capital&#8212;as well as show Americans how effective governance can include left-wing politics. It is the political project of his entire career, from Burlington to the Capitol Building.</p> <p>At the beginning of his speech at George Washington, Sanders took note of the &#8220;growing movement toward oligarchy&#8221; in the United States and the world at large. He listed the leaders of several governments&#8212;Putin in Russia, Xi in China, Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia, Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil and Viktor Orban in Hungary&#8212;that &#8220;meld corporatist economics with xenophobia and authoritarianism.&#8221; I think this analysis, which I&#8217;ve written about in the past, can also help us make sense of Sanders&#8217; idiosyncratic use of &#8220;democratic socialism.&#8221;</p> <p>In a 1977 essay for Dissent magazine, &#8220;Socialism and Liberalism: Articles of Conciliation?,&#8221; socialist writer Irving Howe addressed the &#8220;tacit collaboration of right and left extremes in undermining the social and moral foundations of liberalism,&#8221; which he described as &#8220;a great intellectual scandal of the age.&#8221; Those critics failed, he wrote, &#8220;to consider what the consequences might be of their intemperate attacks upon liberalism.&#8221; To assault the foundations of liberal democracy, he added, &#8220;meant to bring into play social forces the intellectuals of both right and left could not foresee.&#8221;</p> <p>In straddling the two sides of the left-wing divide&#8212;in tying &#8220;democratic socialism&#8221; to the legacy of the most important figure in American liberalism&#8212;Sanders might be modeling a kind of pragmatism. Not the colloquial pragmatism of do what works, but something from the American philosophical tradition where the truth of the matter is in the doing, not the definitions.</p> <p>He calls himself a &#8220;democratic socialist,&#8221; others call themselves &#8220;liberals,&#8221; but in the United States they&#8217;re part of a common project, fighting on a united front.</p> </div> </div> <p>____________________________________</p> <p><a href="https://trumpandtrumpism.com/" rel="nofollow" class="external"><strong>Trump Investigations News &#8211;

What does he gain from this? What is he trying to do?</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Here&#8217;s how Sanders talked about his ideology in a recent speech at George Washington University:</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> <span style="box-sizing: inherit; font-weight: 700;">&#8220;The right to quality health care, the right to as much education as one needs to succeed in our society, the right to a good job that pays a living wage, the right to affordable housing, the right to a secure retirement, and the right to live in a clean environment.&#8221;</span></div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> &#8220;That,&#8221; he continued, &#8220;is what I mean by democratic socialism.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Compare this with the vision of his political hero Eugene Debs, whom Sanders profiled in the 1979 documentary Eugene Debs: Trade Unionist, Socialist, Revolutionary.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> &#8220;Socialism,&#8221; Debs wrote in 1904, &#8220;is first of all a political movement of the working class, clearly defined and uncompromising, which aims at the overthrow of the prevailing capitalist system by securing control of the national government and by the exercise of the public powers, supplanting the existing capitalist class government with socialist administration.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> It is, Debs said, &#8220;the collective ownership and control of industry and its democratic management in the interest of all the people.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> More modern programs for American socialism started from the same place. In his 1978 essay &#8220;What Socialists Would Do in America&#8212;If They Could,&#8221; Michael Harrington, who would co-found the Democratic Socialists of America a few years later, assumed a &#8220;national planning process in which all the people would have an effective right to participate.&#8221; This would include democratically owned and managed property as well as a private sector where &#8220;many of the existing functions of corporate power&#8221; had been socialized.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Sanders has proposed a capital fund controlled by workers at major corporations, but that arrangement lies quite a distance from the direct ownership envisioned by Debs or Harrington. That, Sanders rejects.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> &#8220;The next time you hear me attacked as a socialist, remember this,&#8221; he said in a 2015 speech at Georgetown, &#8220;I don&#8217;t believe the government should own the means of production.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Instead of a Marxist, Sanders likes to frame himself as a New Dealer, an heir to the party of Franklin Roosevelt.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Roosevelt, Sanders said last week, &#8220;led a transformation of the American government and the American economy&#8221; and was &#8220;reviled by the oligarchs of his time,&#8221; who attacked his New Deal programs as &#8220;socialism.&#8221;</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> It&#8217;s clear that Sanders wants to drain those attacks of their power by leaning into them, by saying yes, the New Deal was socialist and that was a good thing. And he is right about the reactionary opposition to Roosevelt. They warned of creeping Bolshevism and imminent revolution under programs like the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Works Progress Administration. But being attacked as a socialist doesn&#8217;t make one a socialist, and neither Roosevelt nor the New Deal was socialist.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> Roosevelt came to office a fiscal conservative. He wanted to balance the budget. He also understood, however, that mass unemployment threatened the &#8220;profit system.&#8221; In the face of labor unrest and direct action by industrial workers, he was willing to change course, to meet the activists and movements to his left with policies that satisfied some of their demands. But Roosevelt&#8217;s goal was always preservation: to reform capitalism and harmonize labor and capital, not to forge a replacement.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> What, then, should we make of Sanders&#8217; decision to embrace a nearly revolutionary label, &#8220;democratic socialism,&#8221; but define it in terms of American left-liberal politics?</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> One answer is that as someone who did live and work in left-wing and Marxist circles for much of his adult life, he wants to bring the term into the mainstream of American politics. To not just embrace the &#8220;socialist&#8221; attacks as a badge of honor but to make &#8220;democratic socialism&#8221; an extension of the New Deal is to make it sound normal, even desirable.</div> <div style="box-sizing: inherit; margin-bottom: 1.75em;"> More Americans may embrace the label.

It distinguishes him from his rivals in the Democratic primary and suggests he wants to go further than his stated views&#8212;that he&#8217;s also interested in fundamental transformation, even if his program isn&#8217;t more meaningfully progressive than that of his closest ideological rival, Elizabeth Warren.</p><p>There&#8217;s another way to understand Sanders&#8217; rhetoric around &#8220;democratic socialism.&#8221; For Harold Meyerson of The American Prospect, Sanders embodies the not-always-clear divide between liberals and the left.</p><p>&#8220;In running as a democratic socialist who seeks to complete and update FDR&#8217;s agenda,&#8221; he writes, &#8220;Sanders straddles the very fuzzy border between social democracy and American left liberalism.&#8221; In both traditions, democracy is an economic project as well as a political one. Perhaps Sanders is just trying to make that explicit&#8212;to once and for all marginalize the centrist Democratic Party politics of the past three decades, in which the economic rights of workers were subordinate to the demands of capital&#8212;as well as show Americans how effective governance can include left-wing politics. It is the political project of his entire career, from Burlington to the Capitol Building.</p><p>At the beginning of his speech at George Washington, Sanders took note of the &#8220;growing movement toward oligarchy&#8221; in the United States and the world at large. He listed the leaders of several governments&#8212;Putin in Russia, Xi in China, Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia, Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil and Viktor Orban in Hungary&#8212;that &#8220;meld corporatist economics with xenophobia and authoritarianism.&#8221; I think this analysis, which I&#8217;ve written about in the past, can also help us make sense of Sanders&#8217; idiosyncratic use of &#8220;democratic socialism.&#8221;</p><p>In a 1977 essay for Dissent magazine, &#8220;Socialism and Liberalism: Articles of Conciliation?,&#8221; socialist writer Irving Howe addressed the &#8220;tacit collaboration of right and left extremes in undermining the social and moral foundations of liberalism,&#8221; which he described as &#8220;a great intellectual scandal of the age.&#8221; Those critics failed, he wrote, &#8220;to consider what the consequences might be of their intemperate attacks upon liberalism.&#8221; To assault the foundations of liberal democracy, he added, &#8220;meant to bring into play social forces the intellectuals of both right and left could not foresee.&#8221;</p><p>In straddling the two sides of the left-wing divide&#8212;in tying &#8220;democratic socialism&#8221; to the legacy of the most important figure in American liberalism&#8212;Sanders might be modeling a kind of pragmatism. Not the colloquial pragmatism of do what works, but something from the American philosophical tradition where the truth of the matter is in the doing, not the definitions.</p><p>He calls himself a &#8220;democratic socialist,&#8221; others call themselves &#8220;liberals,&#8221; but in the United States they&#8217;re part of a common project, fighting on a united front.</p></div></div> Trump's playbook for victory in 2020 is reportedly an audacious attempt to turn his biggest weakness - YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uqg-mTk6KtA Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:a5a25d3d-221d-810d-51c8-5b6a393036ce Sun, 23 Jun 2019 07:56:05 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/trumps-playbook-for-/0:55b6df">shared this story</a> .</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="640" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Uqg-mTk6KtA" frameborder="0"></iframe><div class="style-scope ytd-watch-flexy"><div class="style-scope ytd-watch-flexy"></div> </div> <div class="style-scope ytd-watch-flexy"> </div> <div class="style-scope ytd-watch-flexy"> <div class="watch-skeleton style-scope ytd-watch-flexy"><div class="skeleton-light-border-bottom"> <div> <div class="flex-1"> <div class="skeleton-bg-color"></div> <div class="flex-1"> <div class="text-shell skeleton-bg-color"> </div> <div class="text-shell skeleton-bg-color"> </div> </div> </div> <div class="skeleton-bg-color"></div> </div> </div></div> <div class="style-scope ytd-watch-flexy"></div> <div class="style-scope ytd-watch-flexy"></div></div></div> Jared Kushner's $50 billion 'peace to prosperity' plan faces broad Arab rejection https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/06/23/world/jared-kushners-50-billion-peace-prosperity-plan-faces-broad-arab-rejection/#.XQ9c4OhKhPY Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:2c973af1-e0b4-c738-d54f-a51a52d4ef74 Sun, 23 Jun 2019 07:05:38 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/jared-kushners-50-bi/5730755:82ece0">shared this story</a> from <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/icons.newsblur.com/5730755.png" style="vertical-align: middle;width:16px;height:16px;"> Japan Times latest articles.</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div><p><span>RIYADH/AMMAN/CAIRO/WASHINGTON - </span>U.S. President Donald Trump&#8217;s economic vision as part of the wider plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been met with contempt, repudiation and exasperation in the Arab world, even as some in the Persian Gulf called for it to be given a chance.</p><p>The $50 billion &#8220;peace to prosperity&#8221; plan, set to be presented by Jared Kushner, Trump&#8217;s son-in-law, at a conference in Bahrain this week, envisions a global investment fund to lift the Palestinian and neighboring Arab state economies.</p><p> </p><p>The White House on Saturday outlined the plan, which includes 179 infrastructure and business projects and would fund a $5 billion transportation corridor to connect the West Bank and Gaza Strip.</p><p>More than half of the $50 billion would be spent in the economically troubled Palestinian territories over 10 years; the rest would be split among Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan. Some of the projects would be in Egypt&#8217;s Sinai Peninsula, where investments could benefit Palestinians living in the adjacent Gaza Strip, a crowded and impoverished coastal enclave.</p><p>The plan also proposes nearly $1 billion to build up the Palestinians&#8217; tourism sector, a seemingly impractical notion for now given the tenuous security in the occupied West Bank and the frequent flare-ups between Israeli forces and militants from Hamas-ruled Gaza.</p><p>The Trump administration hopes that wealthy Persian Gulf states and nations in Europe and Asia, along with private investors, will foot much of the bill, Kushner said in a recent interview.</p><p>But the plan&#8217;s lack of a political solution, which Washington has said will be unveiled later, prompted rejection not only from Palestinians but also in Arab countries that Israel would seek normal relations with.</p><p>From Sudan to Kuwait, prominent commentators and ordinary citizens denounced Kushner&#8217;s proposals in strikingly similar terms: &#8220;colossal waste of time,&#8221; &#8220;nonstarter,&#8221; &#8220;dead on arrival.&#8221;</p><p>&#8220;Homelands cannot be sold, even for all the money in the world,&#8221; Egyptian analyst Gamal Fahmy said. &#8220;This plan is the brainchild of real estate brokers, not politicians. Even Arab states that are described as moderate are not able to openly express support for it.&#8221;</p><p>Commentator Sarkis Naoum at Lebanon&#8217;s An-Nahar newspaper said, &#8220;This economic plan, like others, won&#8217;t succeed because it has no political foundation.&#8221;</p><p>While the precise outline of the political plan has been shrouded with secrecy, officials say Kushner has jettisoned the two-state solution &#8212; the long-standing worldwide formula that envisages an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza Strip.</p><p>The Palestine Liberation Organization has dismissed Kushner&#8217;s plans as &#8220;all abstract promises,&#8221; insisting that only a political solution will solve the problem. It said the plans are an attempt to bribe the Palestinians into accepting Israeli occupation.</p><p>Jawad al-Anani, a former senior Jordanian politician, described widespread suspicion after Trump&#8217;s decisions to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Israel&#8217;s annexation of the Golan Heights.</p><p>&#8220;This is an unbalanced approach. It assumes the Palestinians are the more vulnerable side and they are the ones who can succumb to pressure more easily,&#8221; he said. &#8220;This is a major setback for the whole region.&#8221;</p><p>Azzam Huneidi, deputy head of Jordan&#8217;s Muslim Brotherhood, the country&#8217;s main opposition force, said: &#8220;The economic plan is the sale of Palestine under the banner of prosperity in return for peace and with no land being returned . . . and with the bulk of the funds shouldered by Gulf Arab states.&#8221;</p><p>Kushner&#8217;s economic proposals will be discussed at a U.S.-led gathering Tuesday and Wednesday. The Palestinian Authority is boycotting and the White House did not invite the Israeli government.</p><p>U.S.-allied Persian Gulf Arab states, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, will take part along with officials from Egypt, Jordan and Morocco. Lebanon and Iraq will not attend.</p><p>Lebanon&#8217;s Iranian-backed Shiite group Hezbollah, which wields significant influence over the government, has previously called the plan &#8220;a historic crime&#8221; that must be stopped.</p><p>Arab analysts believe the economic plan is an attempt to stop opposition to Israel&#8217;s occupation of Palestinian land with a multibillion-dollar bribe to pay off the neighboring hosts of millions of Palestinian refugees to integrate them.</p><p>&#8220;It is disingenuous to say that this plan is purely economic, because it has a political dimension that has implications that are incongruous with the political aspirations,&#8221; said Safwan Masri, a Columbia University professor. &#8220;A big part of the $50 billion will go to neighboring states to settle the Palestinian refugees in those countries.&#8221;</p><p>After Israel&#8217;s creation in 1948, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon absorbed the most Palestinian refugees. By some estimates, they now number around 5 million.</p><p>Mohanad Hage Ali, a fellow at Beirut&#8217;s Carnegie Middle East Center, said, &#8220;I see it failing miserably while benefiting U.S. adversaries in the region,&#8221; a reference to Iran.</p><p>In recent years, Iran&#8217;s bitter rivalry with a bloc led by Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia has increasingly pushed the Arab-Israeli struggle into the background.</p><p>While Riyadh and its allies have welcomed Trump&#8217;s harder line against Tehran, which has cast itself as the guardian of Palestinian rights, critics accuse Saudi Arabia, the custodian of Islam&#8217;s holiest places, of abandoning the Palestinians.</p><p>Amid fears that it will push them to accept a U.S. plan that favors Israel, Saudi Arabia has assured Arab allies it would not endorse anything that fails to meet key Palestinian demands.</p><p>Ali Shihabi, who heads the Arabia Foundation which supports Saudi policies, said the Palestinian Authority was wrong to reject the plan out of hand. &#8220;It should accept it and work on delivering the benefits to its people and then move forward aggressively with nonviolent work . . . to seek political rights,&#8221; he tweeted.</p><p>Prominent Emirati businessman Khalaf Ahmad al-Habtoor has also criticized the Palestinians&#8217; refusal to go to Bahrain, calling it &#8220;short-sighted at best, self-defeating at worst.&#8221;</p><p>&#8220;There is no harm in listening to what will be placed on the table,&#8221; he wrote last month.</p><p>Yet even in the Persian Gulf, backing for Kushner&#8217;s plan is limited.</p><p>Majed al-Ansari, a political sociology professor at Qatar University, called it laughable and unrealistic.</p><p>&#8220;The idea of moving from land for peace to money for peace is insulting to the Palestinian cause,&#8221; he said. &#8220;It is very clear that Kushner&#8217;s idea is about paying for Palestinian approval of Israel taking over all their land and basically giving no concessions to the Palestinians.&#8221;</p><p>Kuwaiti researcher Maitham al-Shakhs predicted Washington will be unable to implement the plan through diplomacy and might have to impose it by force: Trump &#8220;gave Israel Jerusalem and the Golan, and every day he gives them gifts at the expense of the Arabs.&#8221;</p><p>Emirati political scientist Abdulkhaleq Abdulla said the Palestinians are entitled to reject Kushner&#8217;s plan because it does not meet their minimum aspirations. &#8220;The plan is not even palatable to the wider audience in the region. It will be a sell-off of a just cause,&#8221; he said. &#8220;The Gulf states will have a hard time to force it on the Palestinians. They will have a hard time convincing the Palestinians. . . . It&#8217;s not what people expect after years of conflict and struggle.&#8221;</p></div></div> 2:19 PM 6/22/2019 | Trump and Trumpism – Review Of News And Opinions https://trumpandtrumpism.com/2019/06/22/219-pm-6-22-2019/ Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:6be80834-cb61-1bf1-008c-c329b9559cd0 Sat, 22 Jun 2019 14:21:23 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0;

Eighty percent depend on international aid, according to the UN Relief and Works Agency, the main international organization that provides health, education and other services to Palestinian refugees.</p><p>Gaza is run by the Hamas terror group and Kushner did not address how the plan, which includes funding for infrastructure linking Gaza to the West Bank, would deal with this and the failure of the Palestinians to reconcile.</p><p>&#8220;The reason we&#8217;re calling this a workshop and not a conference is because we want to get feedback and hopefully finalize it so that we can then coordinate a lot of the aid efforts and investing efforts to really drive these results,&#8221; Kushner said. The White House is hoping that wealthy Gulf states would provide the bulk of the funds, but that it is considering pitching in as well.</p><p>Funds raised at the workshop would be administered by a multinational development bank managed by an appointed board of governors, according to Reuters, which reviewed documents related to the plan in addition to speaking with Kushner and several of his top aides.</p><p>Kushner suggested that the US plan has some similarities to the Marshall Plan, an American initiative passed in 1948 to jump-start economies in Western Europe after World War II.</p><div><img src="https://static.timesofisrael.com/www/uploads/2019/06/F190616DCFF24-640x400.jpg" width="600" height="375" alt="" /><p>US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman (left) and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (far right) at the ceremony for the new town of Ramat Trump, named for US President Donald Trump, on the Golan Heights, June 16, 2019.

This is a similar notion [that we&#8217;re trying to do],&#8221; he explained.</p><p>Responding to the Palestinian Authority&#8217;s decision to boycott the June 25-26 Bahrain summit and declarations from Arab states that they would not budge on their requirement that the US plan see to it the creation of a Palestinian state, Kushner asserted that Washington &#8220;care[s] about the Palestinian cause.&#8221;</p><p>However, he avoided discussing the idea of Palestinian political sovereignty and stressed how the US plan would&#160; help move the Palestinians &#8220;move forward economically.&#8221;</p><p>Kushner stuck to the pre-stated White House&#8217;s position that it will introduce the political side of its plan at a later date, but assured that this section would not be ignored.</p><p>The White House said earlier this month that it wants to wait until after a new Israeli government is formed.

There can be no prosperity under occupation."</p><p>No Palestinian officials belonging to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' PLO and Palestinian Authority will attend the conference in Bahrain.</p><p>The White House said it decided against inviting the Israeli government because the PA would not be there.</p><p>Several Gulf Arab states, including Saudi Arabia, will participate in the June 25-26 US-led gathering in Manama.</p><p>Their presence, some US officials say privately, appears intended in part to curry favour with Trump as he takes a hard line against Iran, those countries' regional arch-foe.</p><p>The economic revival plan would take place only if a political solution to the region's long-running problems is reached.</p><p>More than half of the US$50 billion would be spent in the economically troubled Palestinian territories over 10 years while the rest would be split between Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan.</p><p>Some of the projects would be in Egypt's Sinai peninsula, where investments could benefit Palestinians living in adjacent Gaza, a crowded and impoverished coastal enclave.</p><p>In Gaza, Hamas official Ismail Rudwan also rejected Kushner's proposals.</p><p>The armed Islamist group is the main internal rival to Abbas, whose power base is in the West Bank. But both are in rare agreement over the Trump administration.</p><p>"We reject the 'deal of the century' and all its dimensions, the economic, the political and the security dimensions," Rudwan told Reuters.</p><p>"The issue of our Palestinian people is a nationalistic issue, it is the issue of a people who are seeking to be free from occupation.

margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div><p><span><span>W</span></span>hat should we make of Facebook&#8217;s sudden foray into the world of digital money? Just as regulators were beginning to wake up from their self-induced coma to discover that Facebook has grown too fast and too big for its own good, the company has decided to redouble its unbending commitment to &#8220;moving fast and breaking things&#8221;. The good old days when <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/facebook" rel="nofollow" class="external">Facebook</a> was merely breaking privacy and elections are now gone &#8211; and we&#8217;ll surely miss them. But how could they compete with the chance of breaking &#8211; once and for all &#8211; the global financial system?</p><p>To that end, Facebook has announced Libra, a currency, an infrastructure, a network &#8211; an ambiguous digital entity capacious enough to be everything for everybody, and with the noble cover of a .org domain to boot. It&#8217;s the ultimate Schrodinger&#8217;s cat of the digital economy: a blockchain/non-blockchain, it will serve as money/non-money to save/bury Facebook/all of us.</p><p>The specifics of how this amorphous project will operate are somewhat scarce but one can still discern its overall aspiration. It would enable users, especially those who are unfortunate enough to lack a bank account but fortunate enough to have a Facebook account, to convert real money into Libras, to deposit it virtually, to send it to others or to simply use it to pay for services.</p><p>Facebook is framing the venture as humanitarianism: Libra is here to help the world bank, not strip the world of its remaining assets. Thus, for every Uber and Mastercard that have joined Libra&#8217;s association as partners (at the &#8220;small&#8221; cost of $10m per company &#8211; apparently, the era of &#8220;free&#8221; online stuff is over too), there are also not-for-profit groups like Mercy Corps and Women&#8217;s World Banking that lend today&#8217;s financial and digital capitalism a humane, even smiley face. Without this not-for-profit contingent, the Libra Association would look more like an innovation-friendly crime syndicate &#8211; just look at the total number of recent court cases involving Uber, Mastercard, and Facebook alone.</p><p>It&#8217;s tempting to misread Facebook&#8217;s move into finance as yet more proof of its infinite chutzpah and shortsighted arrogance. Is Libra just a clever way of spitting into the face of angry regulators? Where does Facebook find the courage to proclaim that it&#8217;s going to work with policymakers in order to &#8220;shape the regulatory environment&#8221; in a way that is conducive to its needs? No sane regulator would like to be seen to be shaped by anyone in Facebook&#8217;s orbit.</p><p>Facebook, however, is no novice to controversy and is probably less na&#239;ve than the Libra manifesto might suggest. Sheryl Sandberg, CEO Mark Zuckerberg&#8217;s second-in-command, is very familiar with the world of finance, having spent her early career at the US treasury under Larry Summers. Could it be that Zuckerberg actually has a plan?</p><p>Facebook is following a risky but rational two-pronged strategy. First, the company badly needs to diversify its business away from advertising. Second, it wants to pre-empt, as much as possible, some of the tougher regulatory measures that are likely to surface as the US presidential campaign goes into full swing later this year.</p><p>The diversification bit is straightforward: Facebook&#8217;s Chinese competitors have already shown that payments and communications go together and produce a very profitable mix. Besides, the world&#8217;s unbanked won&#8217;t stay so forever; as things stand now, they are most likely to be served by China&#8217;s tech giants, as Beijing expands the digital components of its <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/cities/ng-interactive/2018/jul/30/what-china-belt-road-initiative-silk-road-explainer" rel="nofollow" class="external">One Belt, One Road</a> global strategy. Without a strong presence in payment services, Facebook would not be able to take on Tencent or Alibaba in foreign markets.</p><p>On the other hand, by taking on Chinese competitors directly, Facebook stands to curry favor with Donald Trump: a Facebook that is aggressively trying to undermine the global expansion of Chinese firms is a more important strategic asset to Washington than the pacifist Facebook of yesteryear. For the moment, a further intensification of the tech cold war is only good news for Facebook, as such heated rhetoric (and practice) would paralyze Washington&#8217;s efforts to break it up.</p><p>But there&#8217;s another rationale to Facebook&#8217;s actions. As it prepares for the public battle over its future, the company seems to have grasped that its best weapon is to mobilize the exact kind of populism that has already allowed other Silicon Valley giants &#8211; especially Uber and Airbnb &#8211; to rally their users behind their anti-regulation campaigns.</p><p>By positioning their firm as a rebel force against mediocre bureaucrats and sluggish corporate incumbents, Facebook&#8217;s strategists seek to convince the public that their company, an emancipatory force of universal disruption, is a victim of global conspiracy by crony politicians and lazy competitors. Given the boundless public animosity to banks and their regulators &#8211; topped only by animosity toward telecom firms &#8211; such arguments might even sound persuasive.</p><p>With the launch of Libra, Facebook might also be acknowledging, however subtly, that its business model will be changing soon. Remarkably, it has already quietly embraced the idea &#8211; once anathema in big tech circles &#8211; that user data is a commodity with a price tag on top. Thus, it has <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jun/11/facebook-user-data-app-privacy-study" rel="nofollow" class="external">recently launched an app</a> that pays users in order to collect data about how they interact with the services and apps of its competitors. But what about the value of data that users generate while they use Facebook itself?</p><p>Facebook&#8217;s long-term bet could very well be that a digital economy where data and digital services are completely commodified might be as profitable as the one where the imperatives of advertising help to keep that data non-commodified. Yes, Facebook would need to pay something to its users &#8211; but, in turn, it would also be able to charge them for its services. As long as all such transactions are conducted in a currency under its implicit control&#8211; and if Facebook succeeds in convincing its users that their data, on its own, has far less value than the services it supplies &#8211; it would not necessarily be such a bad outcome for the company. In fact, it&#8217;s almost certainly better than the prospect of slicing up the company into smaller pieces on antitrust grounds.</p><p>If Facebook is prepared to embrace such a seemingly radical shift to payments and subscriptions, it would disarm many of its critics, who have been insisting that the reason to fear Facebook is precisely because it&#8217;s too addicted to advertising and cannot embrace other models. But would a different Facebook &#8211; a champion of digital currencies &#8211; look any less threatening?</p><p>Perhaps Facebook&#8217;s critics have misunderstood the nature of the threat. Facebook, along with Amazon, Alphabet, and a few others, present a problem that is fundamentally different from those of other industries.</p><p>As long as they traffic in data &#8211; and as long as data remains the lifeblood of democracy and economy alike &#8211; these firms will exercise disproportionate and undue influence over decisions that ought to be decided in parliaments, not in marketplaces. Whether they get to exercise it by extracting our data and showing us ads or by buying our data and selling us their services is not so important. A business model, however profitable, is never a sound foundation for robust democracy. For that, we have constitutions.</p><ul> <li><p>Evgeny Morozov is a Guardian US columnist</p></li> </ul><div><div><div><p>... like you, are reading and supporting The Guardian&#8217;s independent, investigative journalism than ever before.

He is the creator of DeepFaceLab, one of the most popular pieces of software used by the public to create forged videos. Ivan, who claims to be an &#8220;ordinary programmer&#8221; and not a political activist, discovered the technology on Reddit in 2017. The software he used to create his first deepfake left a watermark on his video, which irritated him. After the creator of the software rejected a number of changes Ivan suggested, he decided to create his own program.<p></p> <p>In the past 12 months, DeepFaceLab&#8217;s popularity has brought Ivan numerous offers of work, including regular approaches from Chinese TV companies. &#8220;This is not interesting to me,&#8221; he says, via email. For Ivan, creating deepfake software is like solving an intellectual puzzle. Currently, DeepFaceLab can only replace the target&#8217;s face below the forehead. Ivan is working to get to the stage where an entire head can be grafted from one body to another. This will allow deepfake makers to assume &#8220;full control of another person&#8221;, he says, an evolutionary step that &#8220;all politicians fear like fire&#8221;. But while such technology exists behind closed doors, there is no source code in the public domain. (Ivan cites a 2018 presentation,&#160;<a class="external" href="https://web.stanford.edu/~zollhoef/papers/SG2018_DeepVideo/page.html" rel="nofollow">Deep Video Portraits</a>, delivered at a conference by Stanford researchers, as the gold standard towards which he is working.)</p> <p>The most sophisticated deepfakes require advanced machine-learning skills and their development is computationally intensive and expensive. One expert estimates the cost to be about &#163;1,000 a day. For an amateur creating fake celebrity pornography, this is a major barrier to entry. But for a government or a well-funded political organisation, the cost is insignificant &#8211; and falling every month. Ivan flipflops in his assessment of the threat. &#8220;I do not think that so many stupid rulers&#8230; are capable of such complicated schemes as deepfakes,&#8221; he says. Then, when asked if politicians and journalists have overestimated the risk of deepfake propaganda, he says: &#8220;Did the gods overestimate the risk of giving people fire?&#8221;</p></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div> $4 million defense contract for George Nader - Google Search https://www.google.com/search?q=%244+million+defense+contract+for+George+Nader&#38;newwindow=1&#38;rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS733US733&#38;source=lnms&#38;tbm=isch&#38;sa=X&#38;ved=0ahUKEwiVoou72vziAhVQmVkKHVtfBX4Q_AUIECgB&#38;biw=1536&#38;bih=722#imgrc=NyOB2wNvISSVsM: Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:33345684-25aa-da48-a077-a16fad6b8433 Sat, 22 Jun 2019 06:39:47 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0;

He also flattered Mr. Broidy about &#8220;how well you handle Chairman,&#8221; a reference to Mr. Trump, and repeated to his well-connected friend that he told the effective rulers of both Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. about &#8220;the Pivotal Indispensable Magical Role you are playing to help them.&#8221;</p><p>Mr. Nader&#8217;s cultivation of Mr. Broidy, laid out in documents provided to The New York Times, provides a case study in the way two Persian Gulf monarchies have sought to gain influence inside the Trump White House. Mr. Nader has been granted immunity in a deal for his cooperation with the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to people familiar with the matter, and his relationship with Mr. Broidy may also offer clues to the direction of that inquiry.</p><p>Mr. Nader has now been called back from abroad to provide additional testimony, one person familiar with the matter said this week. Mr. Mueller&#8217;s investigators have already asked witnesses about Mr. Nader&#8217;s contacts with top Trump administration officials and about his possible role in funneling Emirati money to Mr. Trump&#8217;s political efforts, a sign that the investigation has broadened to examine the role of foreign money in the Trump administration.</p><p>The documents contain evidence not previously reported that Mr. Nader also held himself out as intermediary for Saudi Arabia&#8217;s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/20/us/politics/saudi-crown-prince-arrives-at-white-house-to-meet-with-trump.html?module=inline" rel="nofollow" class="external">who met with Mr. Trump on Tuesday in the Oval Office</a> at the beginning of a tour of the United States to meet with political and business leaders.</p><p>A lawyer for Mr. Nader declined to comment. Two people close to Mr. Broidy said he had not been contacted by the special counsel&#8217;s investigators. In a statement, Mr. Broidy said that his efforts &#8220;aimed to strengthen the national security of the United States, in full coordination with the U.S. government.&#8221; He added, &#8220;I have always believed strongly in countering both Iran and Islamic extremism, and in working closely with our friends in the Arab world in order to do so.&#8221;</p></div></div><div><div><p>The documents, which included emails, business proposals and contracts, were provided by an anonymous group critical of Mr. Broidy&#8217;s advocacy of American foreign policies in the Middle East. The Times showed Mr. Broidy&#8217;s representatives copies of all of the emails it intended to cite in an article. In his statement, Mr. Broidy said he could not confirm the authenticity of all of them, noting that The Times was able to show him only printouts and not the original emails.</p><p>A spokesman for Mr. Broidy has said he believes the documents were stolen by hackers working for Qatar in retaliation for his work critical of the country &#8212; a regional nemesis of the Saudis and Emiratis.</p><p>&#8220;We now possess irrefutable evidence tying Qatar to this unlawful attack on, and espionage directed against, a prominent United States citizen within the territory of the United States,&#8221; Lee S.

If Qatar was not responsible, &#8220;we expect your government to hold accountable the rogue actors in Qatar who have caused Mr. Broidy substantial damages.&#8221;</p></div></div><div><div><h2>Forging a Connection</h2><p>The two men first met during the crush of parties and other events surrounding Mr. Trump&#8217;s inauguration. Mr. Broidy, 60, a longtime Republican donor and a vice chairman of the inaugural fund-raising committee, got his start in business as an accountant and then as an investment manager for <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/19/business/19bell.html?module=inline" rel="nofollow" class="external">Glen Bell</a>, the founder of Taco Bell.</p><p>Mr. Nader, 58, a United States citizen born in Lebanon, previously ran a Washington-based journal called Middle East Insight, acted as an informal emissary to Syria under the Clinton administration, and, according to a short biography in the emails, later worked for Vice President Dick Cheney.</p><p>The two became fast friends, and by February, they were exchanging emails about potential contracts for Circinus with both the U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia, and also about Saudi and Emirati objectives in Washington, such as persuading the United States government to take action against the Muslim Brotherhood or put pressure on its regional ally, Qatar.</p></div></div><div><div><p>Early in the Trump administration, the two men also noted with approval a successful effort to block a top Pentagon position for Anne Patterson, a former ambassador to Cairo whom the Emiratis and Saudis have long criticized as too sympathetic to the deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood during his one year in office.</p><p>In one message to Mr. Nader in March 2017, Mr. Broidy referred to <a href="https://www.secureamericanow.org/home" rel="nofollow" class="external">Secure America Now</a>, an advocacy organization that he suggested had campaigned against Ms. Patterson, as &#8220;one of the groups I am working with.&#8221; The two people close to Mr. Broidy said he had not raised money for the group or campaigned against Ms. Patterson.</p><p>The Saudis and Emiratis have had particularly warm relations with the Trump administration. Mr. Trump at times has appeared to side with the Arab monarchies against his own cabinet secretaries &#8212; including in the bitter regional dispute against neighboring Qatar. Also in concert with the Saudis and Emiratis, Mr. Trump has taken a far more hawkish stance toward Iran than either his cabinet or President Barack Obama, threatening to &#8220;rip up&#8221; the Iran nuclear deal that <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/15/world/middleeast/iran-nuclear-deal-is-reached-after-long-negotiations.html?module=inline" rel="nofollow" class="external">Mr. Obama brokered in 2015</a>.</p><p>On March 25, Mr. Broidy emailed Mr. Nader a spreadsheet outlining a proposed Washington lobbying and public relations campaign against both Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood. The proposed campaign&#8217;s total cost was $12.7 million.</p><p>The two people close to Mr. Broidy said the plan was drafted by a third party for circulation to like-minded American donors, and that only some of its provisions were carried out.</p><p>Mr. Nader did, however, provide a $2.7 million payment to Mr. Broidy for &#8220;consulting, marketing and other advisory services rendered,&#8221; apparently to help pay for the cost of conferences at two Washington think tanks, the Hudson Institute and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, that featured heavy criticism of Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood.</p><p>Hudson Institute policies prohibit donations from foreign governments that are not democracies, and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies bars donations from all foreign governments, so Mr. Nader&#8217;s role as an adviser to the U.A.E. may have raised concerns had he donated directly.</p></div></div><div><div><p>The foundation said in a statement that it was approached by Mr. Broidy in 2017 seeking to fund a conference on Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood. &#8220;As is our funding policy, we asked if his funding was connected to any foreign governments or if he had business contracts in the Gulf. He assured us that he did not,&#8221; the statement said.</p><p>Documents show Mr. Nader&#8217;s payment was made by an Emirati-based company he controlled, GS Investments, to an obscure firm based in Vancouver, British Columbia, controlled by Mr. Broidy, Xieman International. A person close to Mr. Broidy said the money was passed through the Canadian company at Mr. Nader&#8217;s request, and the reason for its circuitous path could not be determined.</p><p>Documents also appear to show that lawyers for Mr. Broidy discussed with him a possible agreement to share with Mr. Nader a portion of the profits from the first round of business his company did with the Saudis and Emiratis &#8212; an apparent reflection of his integral role in helping the company, Circinus, negotiate for the lucrative security contracts.</p></div></div><div><div><p>In his statement, Mr. Broidy said Mr. Nader &#8220;is not a shareholder, officer, director or employee of any of my companies.&#8221;</p><p>&#8220;He has not been paid any origination fee or any other fees in connection with these matters,&#8221; he said.</p><h2>Influential Links</h2><p>Months later, as Mr. Broidy was preparing for an Oval Office meeting with Mr. Trump, Mr. Nader pressed him to try to line up a private meeting outside the White House between Mr. Trump and the leader of the United Arab Emirates, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, whom he referred to as &#8220;Friend.&#8221;</p></div></div><div><div><p>&#8220;Tell him that Friend would like to come ASAP to meet you SOONEST out of official site, in New Jersey&#8221; or Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, Mr. Nader wrote to Mr. Broidy on Oct. 1.</p><p>&#8220;Again, Again and Again, please try to be the ONE to fix a date for Friend while you are there if at all possible,&#8221; he added.</p><p>Six days later, Mr. Broidy did just that, repeatedly pressing Mr. Trump to meet with the crown prince in a &#8220;quiet&#8221; setting outside the White House &#8212; perhaps in New York or New Jersey &#8212; according to a detailed report on the meeting that Mr. Broidy sent to Mr. Nader shortly after. Mr. Trump&#8217;s national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, blocked the request, Mr. Broidy reported.</p><p>In a memorandum to Mr. Nader about the Oval Office meeting on Oct. 6, Mr. Broidy reported that he personally urged Mr. Trump to fire Mr. Tillerson, whom the Saudis and Emiratis saw as insufficiently tough on Iran and Qatar.</p></div></div><div><div><p>Later in the fall, Mr. Nader complained that the Secret Service had stopped him from getting his picture taken with Mr. Trump at a fund-raiser. Although the reasons he was kept at bay from the president are unclear, Mr. Nader pleaded guilty in 1991 to a federal child pornography charge and served six months at a halfway house after videotapes were found in his luggage when he arrived at Washington Dulles International Airport from a trip to Germany, according to court records released last week. In 2003, he received a one-year prison sentence in the Czech Republic after he was convicted there of 10 cases of sexually abusing minors, <a href="http://hosted2.ap.org/PASHA/a5050f4ad4f44dafab85bb41a15281cf/Article_2018-03-15-US-Trump-Russia-Probe/id-93db9ed0b5054340b9acc851355ce56b" rel="nofollow" class="external">The Associated Press reported</a>, citing a court spokeswoman.</p><p>Mr. Broidy was puzzled by the Secret Service&#8217;s objections. Mr. Nader, in his capacity as an adviser to the ruler of United Arab Emirates, had met several times with senior administration officials in the White House during Mr. Trump&#8217;s first weeks in office.</p></div></div><div><div><p>Mr. Broidy was apparently able to deliver: On Dec. 14, he emailed Mr. Nader his photograph grinning next to Mr. Trump.</p><p>Despite the close relations between the White House and the two gulf nations, there have been occasional hiccups, and in January, Mr. Nader twice emailed his friend with another delicate request: The leader of the U.A.E. asked that Mr. Trump call the crown prince of Saudi Arabia to try to smooth over potential bad feelings created by the book &#8220;Fire and Fury,&#8221; by Michael Wolff. It portrayed the president&#8217;s views of the Saudi prince in an unflattering light, Mr. Nader wrote.</p><p>&#8220;See what you can trigger and do and we can discuss more in person,&#8221; Mr. Nader wrote, reiterating once again the &#8220;genuine desire&#8221; of the ruler of the United Arab Emirates to meet alone with Mr. Trump.</p><p>Days later, Mr. Nader wrote to his friend that he was looking forward to an upcoming trip to the United States. Mr. Broidy was arranging for him to attend a gala dinner at Mar-a-Lago, the president&#8217;s Florida estate, to celebrate the anniversary of Mr. Trump&#8217;s inauguration, and the two men were considering a trip to Saudi Arabia to try to sell the kingdom&#8217;s young and powerful crown prince on a $650 million contract with Mr. Broidy&#8217;s security company.</p><p>But those grand plans were interrupted. It was on that trip to the United States that, as he touched down at Dulles Airport, Mr. Nader was greeted by F.B.I. agents working for Mr. Mueller.</p></div></div></div> $4 million defense contract for George Nader - Google Search https://www.google.com/search?q=%244+million+defense+contract+for+George+Nader&#38;newwindow=1&#38;rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS733US733&#38;source=lnms&#38;tbm=isch&#38;sa=X&#38;ved=0ahUKEwiVoou72vziAhVQmVkKHVtfBX4Q_AUIECgB&#38;biw=1536&#38;bih=722#imgrc=KSof-6LfR-bS6M: Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:cef8b742-72f2-d1a2-7775-4c849172b25b Sat, 22 Jun 2019 06:28:46 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0;

Over the winter, prosecutors also charged Michael Flynn&#8217;s former business partners for their role in a <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/michael-flynns-business-partner-charged-with-illegally-lobbying-for-turkey/2018/12/17/46fb3762-020a-11e9-9122-82e98f91ee6f_story.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">Turkish lobbying scheme</a>.</p><p>Now, as US attorney general William Barr prepares to face congressional hearings this week about the Mueller probe&#8217;s conclusions and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who oversaw the Mueller probe for nearly two years, resigns, a fresh assessment of the current investigative landscape facing Trump makes clear how the center of gravity of the probes has shifted to New York&#8212;to the Southern District, which continues several investigations into Trump&#8217;s world and to the new state attorney general, Letitia James, who has followed through on her campaign pledge to hold Trump accountable and who just Monday faced <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/29/politics/trump-nra-investigation-new-york/index.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">presidential Twitter opprobrium</a> for her push to investigate the NRA.</p><p>&#8220;I&#8217;ve been saying for months that the Southern District of New York investigation presents a much more serious threat to the administration, potentially, than what Bob Mueller is doing,&#8221; Trump ally, former prosecutor, and one-time New Jersey governor Chris Christie told <a href="https://abcnews.go.com/beta-story-container/Politics/york-prosecutors-seek-records-trump-inauguration-committee-sources/story?id=60841246" rel="nofollow" class="external">ABC</a> News this winter.</p><p>Back in December, I ran down the <a href="https://www.wired.com/story/mueller-investigation-trump-russia-complete-guide/" rel="nofollow" class="external">17 investigations</a>, which at the time focused on questions about Trump&#8217;s world and Russian influence in the US, included the following:</p><p><strong>1.</strong> The 2016 Russian election attack<br /><strong>2.</strong> Wikileaks<br /><strong>3.</strong> Middle Eastern influence<br /><strong>4.</strong> Paul Manafort&#8217;s activities<br /><strong>5.</strong> The Trump Tower Moscow project<br /><strong>6.</strong> Russia-Trump Campaign contacts<br /><strong>7.</strong> Presidential obstruction of jusice<br /><strong>8.</strong> Campaign finance violations and Trump Organization finances<br /><strong>9.</strong> Inauguration funding<br /><strong>10.</strong> SuperPAC funding<br /><strong>11.</strong> Foreign lobbying violations<br /><strong>12.</strong> Russian spy Maria Butina<br /><strong>13.</strong> Russian Internet Research Agency accountant Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova<br /><strong>14.</strong> Turkish influence<br /><strong>15.</strong> Trump Organization tax fraud<br /><strong>16.</strong> Trump Foundation fraud<br /><strong>17.</strong> Violations of the emoluments clause</p><p>Today, perhaps half of those cases have more or less wrapped up. With a few minor exceptions, Mueller appears to have entirely wrapped up four major threads of his investigation: (No. 1) the Russian election attack, (No. 5) Trump Tower Moscow, (No. 6) the Trump-Russia contacts, and (No. 7) the obstruction probe, as well as&#8212;for the most part&#8212;(No. 4) the probe of Paul Manafort , although there are some signs in the Mueller report that prosecutors are still picking at loose ends there.</p><p>The Maria Butina case (No. 12), similarly, appears to be all but over, although her boyfriend, GOP adviser Paul Erickson, was <a href="https://www.npr.org/2019/02/06/687417296/paul-erickson-boyfriend-of-russian-agent-maria-butina-charged-in-fraud-scheme" rel="nofollow" class="external">charged</a> in February with fraud unrelated to Russia or the 2016 campaign. There&#8217;s been no further movement in the case of the IRA&#8217;s accountant (No. 13) nor, according to the Justice Department, are there are any further sealed charges against other Russian hackers who were part of the GRU military intelligence unit or the Internet Research Agency.</p><p>The charges against Greg Craig appear to mostly wrap up the foreign-lobbying-violations part of the investigation (No. 11), too, although the redactions in Mueller&#8217;s Appendix D appear to block out a second name who may face legal action. Similarly, the charges against Michael Flynn&#8217;s business partners presumably close out that case (No. 14).</p><p>That leaves open at least eight of the original 17, as well at least another eight new cases that have emerged in recent months. Effectively everything with a Russian nexus appears to be over, leaving a dozen cases focused on Trump world&#8217;s finances.</p><p>In other words, Trump&#8217;s world still appears to face 16 known criminal and civil probes, from as many as a dozen different federal, state, and local prosecutors. (That&#8217;s not counting the dozen cases that the special counsel&#8217;s office referred to other law enforcement agencies, cases mentioned in Mueller&#8217;s report but redacted so as to obscure any details about them.)</p><p>Here are the 16 <em>known</em> cases, starting with the remaining Mueller threads:</p><p><strong>1. Wikileaks</strong><br />Unlike the majority of Mueller&#8217;s work, the investigations around Wikileaks&#8217; role in the 2016 election appears to be ongoing&#8212;potentially even on more than one front. Throughout Mueller&#8217;s final report, the sections related to Trump associate Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi were consistently redacted. Corsi, who came close to a plea agreement with Mueller for lying to federal investigators, seems likely to face continued scrutiny; the first mention of his name in the Mueller Report actually comes inside a redaction. (Its presence is evident from the context.)</p><p>The remaining prosecutors assigned to Mueller&#8217;s work actually won a <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/29/robert-mueller-roger-stone-associate-court-ruling-1292498" rel="nofollow" class="external">court victory</a> this week, to compel the testimony of Stone associate Andrew Miller, so it&#8217;s clear the team continues to push that case forward; a <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/03/14/roger-stone-trial-1221289" rel="nofollow" class="external">trial for Stone</a>, accused of lying to investigators, is set for later this year.</p><p>Yet it seems possible that the Wikileaks investigation may not end with Stone or Corsi either: Assange&#8217;s April 11 arrest (and pending extradition to the US) means he might someday face at least a <a href="https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/28/uk/julian-assange-legal-troubles-gbr-intl/index.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">criminal computer hacking charge</a> here, although there&#8217;s some <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/appeals-court-wont-release-chelsea-manning-from-jail-in-julian-assange-case/2019/04/22/cadf874e-64f8-11e9-a1b6-b29b90efa879_story.html?utm_term=.a819aab1f5b8" rel="nofollow" class="external">evidence</a> a grand jury may be continuing to consider other charges against him. Following the end of Mueller&#8217;s special counsel probe, federal prosecutors in DC are pursuing the Stone case, whereas across the Potomac, prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia are handling the Assange case.</p><p><strong>2. Middle Eastern Influence</strong><br />While Mueller touches on the role of would-be Middle Eastern power broker George Nader in his <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/04/18/us/politics/mueller-report-document.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">report</a>, his team&#8217;s battle with an <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/02/01/docs-firm-that-handles-cases-for-russian-interests-is-locked-in-mueller-grand-jury-fight-1144016" rel="nofollow" class="external">unnamed foreign entity</a> continues in court. It&#8217;s unclear what state-owned company is at the heart of the battle, but the case has wound through the court systems for months before being <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/25/politics/supreme-court-mueller-grand-jury-documents/index.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">turned down</a> by the Supreme Court last month. Close observers of the case, though, say it likely focused on a Middle Eastern firm. Whatever&#8212;and wherever&#8212;it is, prosecutors remain keen to pry open its secrets.</p><p><em>Then there are at least four cases being pursued by federal authorities in New York.</em></p><p><strong>3. Campaign finance conspiracy</strong><br />It&#8217;s not clear that there are any further shoes to drop from federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York in their investigation of Trump&#8217;s campaign finance violations, stemming from the hush money paid to Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels. This case is the only one that has named the president personally in court papers, identifying him as &#8220;Individual 1,&#8221; the person who directed the conspiracy to which Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty.</p><p>But in a new interview with <em>The New Yorker</em> this week, Cohen <a href="https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/05/06/michael-cohens-last-days-of-freedom" rel="nofollow" class="external">expressed</a> his puzzlement that prosecutors haven&#8217;t appeared to pursue a case further against Trump. &#8220;You are going to find me guilty of campaign finance, with McDougal or Stormy, and give me three years&#8212;really?&#8221; Cohen said. &#8220;How come I&#8217;m the only one? I didn&#8217;t work for the campaign. I worked for him. And how come I&#8217;m the one that&#8217;s going to prison? I&#8217;m not the one that slept with the porn star.&#8221;</p><p><strong>4. Inauguration spending</strong><br />Federal prosecutors in Manhattan, part of the Southern District of New York, have an ongoing investigation of Trump&#8217;s inaugural committee, focusing on where the money went. This winter, investigators served <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/04/politics/sdny-subpoena-trump-inauguration-committee/index.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">subpoenas</a> aimed at uncovering where the Trump inauguration&#8217;s record-setting budget went, a probe spurred in part by recordings from Michael Cohen in which he discussed with one of Melania Trump&#8217;s advisers <a href="https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/04/stephanie-winston-wolkoff-inauguration-congress" rel="nofollow" class="external">worries about the spending</a>.</p><p><strong>5. Inauguration funding</strong><br />Separately from the Southern District probe, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn are investigating where the Trump inauguration&#8217;s money came from. As <em>The New York Times</em> has <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/04/us/politics/trump-inaugural-committee-subpoena.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">summarized</a>, the Eastern District of New York is &#8220;investigating whether inaugural officials helped foreigners illegally funnel donations to Trump&#8217;s inaugural committee using so-called straw donors to disguise their donations.&#8221;</p><p><strong>6. SuperPAC funding</strong><br />One of the cases that grew out of the Mueller investigation of Trump&#8217;s <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/13/us/politics/trump-inauguration-investigation.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">campaign SuperPAC</a>, Rebuilding America Now, which involved Paul Manafort. Sam Patten, a Manafort associate who pleaded guilty to charges in Mueller&#8217;s case, has been cooperating with investigators.</p><p><em>New York state and local authorities are also building cases, both criminal and civil.</em></p><p><strong>7. Tax investigation</strong><br />Following the <em>New York Times</em>&#8217; blockbuster <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/10/02/us/politics/donald-trump-tax-schemes-fred-trump.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">expos&#233;</a> last year, which revealed that &#8220;President Trump participated in dubious tax schemes during the 1990s, including instances of outright fraud,&#8221; New York tax authorities announced they were reviewing the allegations.</p><p><strong>8. The Trump Foundation</strong><br />New York filed a civil case last year against Trump&#8217;s foundation, whose odd spending patterns had been the subject of <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/new-york-files-suit-against-president-trump-alleging-his-charity-engaged-in-illegal-conduct/2018/06/14/c3cbf71e-6fc9-11e8-bd50-b80389a4e569_story.html?utm_term=.33626aa71ab2" rel="nofollow" class="external">investigative reporting</a> in <em>The Washington Post</em> and had been labeled by New York's attorney general at the time as a &#8220;a shocking pattern of illegality.&#8221; The Trumps agreed in December to <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/18/nyregion/ny-ag-underwood-trump-foundation.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">disband the foundation</a>, but the case continues as New York pushes to <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/11/politics/trump-foundation-new-york-attorney-general/index.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">ban the Trumps</a> from participating in other nonprofit boards.</p><p><strong>9.

The NRA</strong><br />The once-powerful National Rifle Association has faced intense scrutiny over the past year, and President Trump <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-blames-nras-woes-on-new-yorks-governor-and-attorney-general/2019/04/29/c78cd2a0-6a65-11e9-a66d-a82d3f3d96d5_story.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">lashed out Monday</a> at its most recent inquisitor, New York attorney general Letitia James.</p><p><em>Meanwhile, a handful of other jurisdictions around the country are pursuing various Trump-related threads.</em></p><p><strong>11.

They&#8217;ve been pushing for the disclosure of <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/legal-us-usa-trump-emoluments/subpoenas-issued-to-trump-organization-in-emoluments-lawsuit-idUSKBN1O4079" rel="nofollow" class="external">financial records</a> of the Trump Organization and hotel, particularly following odd reporting about how the Saudi government evidently <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/saudi-funded-lobbyist-paid-for-500-rooms-at-trumps-hotel-after-2016-election/2018/12/05/29603a64-f417-11e8-bc79-68604ed88993_story.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">purchased more than 500 rooms</a> at Trump&#8217;s hotel in DC (which is a federal property) in the months after the election.

Paul Manafort mortgage case</strong><br />Just hours after Manafort faced sentencing for his federal cases that grew out of Mueller&#8217;s probe, Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. indicted the former Trump campaign chair on a fresh round of <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/03/13/paul-manafort-charged-new-york-fraud-1220399" rel="nofollow" class="external">mortgage fraud charges</a>, a move that could mean that even if Manafort someday receives a presidential pardon, he would still be on the hook for the state charges. (The president does not have pardon power in state cases.) In announcing the new charges, Vance said the case involves &#8220;serious criminal charges for which the defendant has not been held accountable.&#8221;</p><p><strong>14.

margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div><p>This could be the beginning of a larger push at Facebook, and one which would be beneficial on various fronts.&#160;<span>This week, the U</span><span>K</span><span>&#160;Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has called upon The Social Network to <a href="https://techcrunch.com/2019/06/21/ebay-and-facebook-told-to-tackle-trade-in-fake-reviews/" rel="nofollow" class="external">do more to combat the sale of fake reviews on its platform</a>, which could prompt expanded action</span><span>.</span></p><p>The sale of false reviews is illegal under UK consumer law - as reported by <a href="https://techcrunch.com/2019/06/21/ebay-and-facebook-told-to-tackle-trade-in-fake-reviews/" rel="nofollow" class="external">TechCrunch</a>:</p><p><em>"The CMA said that it has found &#8220;troubling evidence&#8221; of a &#8220;thriving marketplace for fake and misleading online reviews.&#8221; Though it also writes that it does not believe the platforms themselves are intentionally allowing such content to appear on their sites."</em></p><p>Indeed there is a thriving marketplace for fake reviews, and it's not difficult to find. A simple search of 'Buy fake reviews' in the Facebook search box returns with the following:</p><p>I mean, they're not even veiled - and as you can see from the search query, it's a pretty blunt search. I have no doubt I could find many more if I changed up the search terms and considered how they might name themselves to avoid detection.</p><div><div><div><p> </p></div></div></div><div><div><div><div></div></div></div></div><p>And that's long been a large part of the frustration on this element - if I can find fake review sites that easily, why can't Facebook remove them? The platform has far more advanced algorithms and systems in place, you would assume that Facebook would have the capacity to detect these sellers,&#160;and could then weed them out. So why hasn't it?</p><p>The assumption could be that Facebook is happy to host as many businesses as possible, even those of questionable legitimacy, because each, potentially,&#160;increases the company's bottom line by purchasing ads.</p><p>Facebook has long sought to take a "hands off" role in the content on its platform, leaning on the stance that it's merely the host (you may recall its repeated "<a href="https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/11/mark-zuckerberg-facebook-is-a-technology-company-not-media-company.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">we're not a media company</a>" line in regards to the spread of misinformation via Facebook Pages). In more recent times, Facebook has been forced to accept some level of responsibility for such, but it would prefer to maintain a level of separation in order to avoid getting into the area of censorship - which is particularly true in the case of businesses and ads, given their subsequent revenue potential.</p><p>But this case highlights a new area of concern - with regulatory bodies paying more attention to illegal, and potentially illegal, practices like this, and with the influence of online platforms growing and impacting more consumer decisions, Facebook may be forced to take more action against fakes. Which can only be a good thing for the broader social eco-system.&#160;&#160;</p><p>In this case, the justification is fairly clear-cut - Facebook needs to take action because, as noted, it's against the law in the UK to sell fake reviews. But another area that Facebook has been slowly ramping up its action has been the sale of fake engagement and followers on social media, which has become a much bigger element of concern, given the rise of influencer marketing.</p><p>In recent months, Facebook has <a href="https://www.socialmediatoday.com/news/facebook-launches-legal-action-against-companies-selling-fake-followers-and/549587/" rel="nofollow" class="external">taken legal action against several companies</a> which had been found to be promoting the sale of fake accounts, likes and followers.

But hopefully, the shifting legal sands will empower Facebook to rid its network of all fakes, and lessen their impact in digital marketing.</p></div></div> The rise of the deepfake and the threat to democracy | Technology https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ng-interactive/2019/jun/22/the-rise-of-the-deepfake-and-the-threat-to-democracy Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:e4ca8211-2fbb-f6a6-7f04-21dfc19846cf Sat, 22 Jun 2019 04:09:17 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/the-rise-of-the-deep/7508487:79284f">shared this story</a> from <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/icons.newsblur.com/7508487.png" style="vertical-align: middle;width:16px;height:16px;"> The Guardian.</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div> <span>'Those who seek to undermine democracy won&#8217;t be deterred by the law'</span> <p>Ivan is a 33-year-old Russian programmer who, having earned a fortune in the video-game industry, is enjoying an extended sabbatical spent cycling, running and camping near where he lives, on the banks of the Volga. He is the creator of DeepFaceLab, one of the most popular pieces of software used by the public to create forged videos. Ivan, who claims to be an &#8220;ordinary programmer&#8221; and not a political activist, discovered the technology on Reddit in 2017. The software he used to create his first deepfake left a watermark on his video, which irritated him. After the creator of the software rejected a number of changes Ivan suggested, he decided to create his own program.</p> <p>In the past 12 months, DeepFaceLab&#8217;s popularity has brought Ivan numerous offers of work, including regular approaches from Chinese TV companies. &#8220;This is not interesting to me,&#8221; he says, via email. For Ivan, creating deepfake software is like solving an intellectual puzzle. Currently, DeepFaceLab can only replace the target&#8217;s face below the forehead. Ivan is working to get to the stage where an entire head can be grafted from one body to another. This will allow deepfake makers to assume &#8220;full control of another person&#8221;, he says, an evolutionary step that &#8220;all politicians fear like fire&#8221;. But while such technology exists behind closed doors, there is no source code in the public domain. (Ivan cites a 2018 presentation, <a href="https://web.stanford.edu/~zollhoef/papers/SG2018_DeepVideo/page.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">Deep Video Portraits</a>, delivered at a conference by Stanford researchers, as the gold standard towards which he is working.)</p> <p>The most sophisticated deepfakes require advanced machine-learning skills and their development is computationally intensive and expensive. One expert estimates the cost to be about &#163;1,000 a day. For an amateur creating fake celebrity pornography, this is a major barrier to entry. But for a government or a well-funded political organisation, the cost is insignificant &#8211; and falling every month. Ivan flipflops in his assessment of the threat. &#8220;I do not think that so many stupid rulers&#8230; are capable of such complicated schemes as deepfakes,&#8221; he says. Then, when asked if politicians and journalists have overestimated the risk of deepfake propaganda, he says: &#8220;Did the gods overestimate the risk of giving people fire?&#8221;</p> <div><div><div></div></div></div> <p>James, founder of derpfake, uses Ivan&#8217;s software to create his fakes. He says it is only a matter of time before &#8220;truly convincing&#8221; forgeries are created by amateurs, but he believes public awareness of the technology will prevent such footage from being able to &#8220;significantly disrupt or interfere&#8221; politically. &#8220;If I show you the latest Transformers film, you fully understand the world isn&#8217;t being attacked by robot aliens and that [the film] has been created using computers,&#8221; he says. &#8220;But show the same footage to a person from 1900 and the reaction would likely be very different.&#8221;</p> <p>Not everyone shares James&#8217;s optimism. In December, the Republican senator Ben Sasse introduced the US&#8217;s first bill to criminalise the malicious creation and distribution of deepfakes, describing the threat as &#8220;<a href="https://www.axios.com/deepfake-laws-fb5de200-1bfe-4aaf-9c93-19c0ba16d744.html" rel="nofollow" class="external">something that keeps our intelligence community up at night</a>&#8221;. <a href="https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/06/12/new_york_state_is_trying_to_ban_deepfakes_and_hollywood_isnt_happy/" rel="nofollow" class="external">A similar bill is being debated in New York state</a>, while last month a Chinese law to regulate the use of deepfakes <a href="https://www.vice.com/en_in/article/bj9xkm/china-deepfake-artificial-intelligence-face-swap" rel="nofollow" class="external">reached its second review</a> before the country&#8217;s legislative body. For James, however, legislation cannot halt the rising tide: &#8220;Those who seek to undermine democracy or the rights of others won&#8217;t be deterred by the laws in another country, or even their own.&#8221;</p> <span>'There will always be an arms race between detection and generation'</span> <p>Just north of Oxford Circus in central London, 80-odd data analysts work in a four-storey mansion, the lofty rooms of which each contain a blackboard, giving it the feel of a Victorian schoolhouse. Unlike most of London&#8217;s tech startups, <a href="https://faculty.ai/about-us/" rel="nofollow" class="external">Faculty</a> chose an office in Marylebone, rather than the industry hub of Shoreditch, due to its proximity to University College London, where many of the company&#8217;s employees studied.</p> <p>For the past year, one of Faculty&#8217;s teams has focused exclusively on generating thousands of deepfakes, of varying quality, using all the main deepfake algorithms in the market. The idea is not to sow disinformation, but to compile a library that will help train systems to distinguish real video or audio from fakes. While politicians scrabble to write laws that may protect societies from weaponised deepfakes, startups such as Faculty, whose clients including the Home Office and numerous police forces, hope to inoculate the internet-going public to their effects.</p> </div></div> felix sater - Google Search https://www.google.com/search?q=felix+sater&#38;newwindow=1&#38;rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS733US733&#38;source=lnms&#38;tbm=nws&#38;sa=X&#38;ved=0ahUKEwjYoLDN2fviAhVyzlkKHcxfA-AQ_AUIESgC&#38;biw=1536&#38;bih=722 Mike Nova's Shared Newslinks urn:uuid:73e8e656-d1b6-b7b1-c191-851370265589 Fri, 21 Jun 2019 19:13:11 -0400 <table style="border: 1px solid #E0E0E0; margin: 0; padding: 0; background-color: #F0F0F0" valign="top" align="left" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tr> <td rowspan="2" style="padding: 6px;width: 36px;white-space:nowrap" width="36" valign="top"><img src="https://graph.facebook.com/808427925927439/picture" style="width: 36px; height: 36px; border-radius: 4px;"></td> <td width="100%" style="padding-top: 6px;"> <b> Michael_Novakhov <a href="http://michael_novakhov.newsblur.com/story/felix-sater-google-s/7508021:43a1a8">shared this story</a> from <img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/icons.newsblur.com/7508021.png" style="vertical-align: middle;width:16px;height:16px;"> &quot;felix sater&quot; - Google News.</b> </td> </tr> </table> <hr style="clear: both; margin: 0 0 24px;"> <div><div class="g"><div class="ts Pg8zWb b80nOe C1Iii FddHQd tsUanb"><a class="top NQHJEb dfhHve" href="https://www.cbsnews.com/news/felix-sater-moscow-born-trump-associate-testifies-before-house-intelligence-today-2019-06-21-live-stream/" rel="nofollow"><img class="th BbeB2d" src="https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSVoIpJXdsvaglPtqLJAoU53OPlplxlNtW8rwlu-x1l-y-OHiPMjHdyC9VyFU0e_QbDZQooKZWg" alt="Story image for felix sater from CBS News" /></a><div class="gG0TJc"><h3 class="r dO0Ag"><a class="l lLrAF" href="https://www.cbsnews.com/news/felix-sater-moscow-born-trump-associate-testifies-before-house-intelligence-today-2019-06-21-live-stream/" rel="nofollow">House Intelligence to subpoena Trump associate <em>Felix Sater</em></a></h3><div class="slp"><span class="xQ82C e8fRJf">CBS News</span><span class="v0c3xd">-</span><span class="f nsa fwzPFf">8 hours ago</span></div><div class="st">The House Intelligence Committee was expecting to hear from Russian-born real estate executive <em>Felix Sater</em> on Friday about his involvement&#160;...</div></div><div class="YiHbdc card-section"><a class="RTNUJf" href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/06/21/house-intel-to-subpoena-felix-sater-after-he-fails-to-appear-for-testimony-1376279" rel="nofollow">House Intel subpoenas <em>Felix Sater</em> after he fails to appear for testimony</a><br /><span class="nsa xQ82C f e8fRJf">Politico</span><span class="v0c3xd">-</span><span class="nsa fwzPFf f">3 hours ago</span></div><div class="gZQpfd"></div><div class="YiHbdc card-section"><a class="RTNUJf" href="https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/06/21/felix-sater-trump-associate-who-pushed-moscow-trump-tower-testify/3249609002/" rel="nofollow">Who is <em>Felix Sater</em>?
