>LONDON (AP) — When mysterious operatives lured two cybersecurity researchers to meetings at luxury hotels over the past two months, it was an apparent bid to discredit their research about an Israeli company that makes smartphone hacking technology used by some governments to spy on their citizens. The Associated Press has now learned of similar undercover efforts targeting at least four other individuals who have raised questions about the use of the Israeli firm’s spyware.

Central Banks Are on the Biggest Gold-Buying Spree in a Half Century

Central banks bought more bullion last year than anytime since 1971, when the U.S. ended the gold standard.

Governments added 651.5 tons of gold to their coffers in 2018, a 74 percent increase from the previous year, according to a report from the World Gold Council.

Russia, which is "de-dollarizing" its reserves, was the biggest buyer, followed by Turkey and Kazakhstan. Hungary also made a large purchase, citing gold’s lack of counterparty risk and role as a hedge against changes in the international finance system, the WGC said.

“Central banks chose to significantly increase their gold reserves, reinforcing the importance of gold as a reserve asset,” the WGC said.

Central banks are expected to acquire an additional 600 tons this year, according to the consulting firm Metals Focus Ltd. The buys, which will help the banks diversify their foreign-exchange assets in a time of extraordinary political volatility, signal a growing confidence in the metal’s value moving forward.

The invisible cold war of today between US and Russia/China/Middle East puts the US dollar in danger. Russia, China, Turkey all buying gold and at the same time trying to bring down the Us dollar by making deals with each other outside the dollar system can't be a coincidence.
We know banks have always used these global wars for profit. The banks buying all that gold must be them hedging their bets.
I wonder what role cryptocurrency is playing in this. It did start in China after all. Could it be another way of making people lose faith in the US dollar?

>The right-wing Alternative for Germany party has fallen under the spell of a hardcore “racial-nationalist” faction that believes in the innate superiority of the German people, according to a leaked intelligence report.

>The AfD’s leadership has been influenced by the “aggressive” ideology of a far-right cadre known as the Wing, which aims to drive Muslims out of Germany “on a scale of millions”, it claimed. The spy agency also accuses the party’s national figureheads of flirting with white supremacist movements and lionising the “biological” purity of the Germanic race.

Russia and China are challenging the US in space. This is stated in the report of the Pentagon’s Intelligence Directorate.

The ministry said that a number of foreign governments "are developing the potential that threatens the ability of other countries to use space."

"China and Russia in particular are taking steps to challenge the United States," the report says.

The document also states that these two countries have developed space-capable space units, including space reconnaissance.

In addition, the Pentagon said the Russian Federation and China "are developing opportunities for jamming and cyberspace operations, directed energy weapons, defense capabilities in orbit and ground-based anti-satellite missiles."

Also among the countries that are challenging in space are Iran and North Korea.

Maybe if he had a few more times where he couldn't buy bread he wouldn't be a fat fuck
He probably does, but he probably didn't get the pilosophical and moral substance he clearly thinks he needed from just his mom.

You know fattening food is the cheap shit right?
I'm sure he's thankful for both his music is still shit tho
You know not eating is the cheapest shit, right?

The former mayor of Moscow has confirmed Donald Trump met with officials in Russia in the 1990s to discuss a possible building project after archival footage of the meeting was posted online.

The video, allegedly aired by Russian state television in 1995, shows the US president meeting with members of the former mayor’s administration.

“Trump was in Moscow,” Yury Luzhkov, the mayor of Moscow from 1992 through 2010, told the Interfax news agency. “He had contacts…on matters related to the construction of the Okhotny Ryad underground mall on Manezh Square.”

The video adds new insight into Mr Trump’s business dealings in Russia well before the 2016 presidential election. It had previously been reported he visited Moscow in 1996 — a year after his alleged meeting with the former mayor’s administration — when he announced plans to invest upwards of $250m into the city.

The video was unearthed by someone who had “been going through the Russian TV archives”, according to Daniel Sandford, a home affairs correspondent for BBC News, who previously served as a correspondent in Moscow.

Interesting. I thought Trump claimed he NEVER had contact and all the Trumpites kept repeating "muh Russia" like it's nothing. Guess that's out the window. How will they attempt to damage control this? Let's find out.

>LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles officials agreed Thursday to drop all criminal charges against one of the city’s most visible Black Lives Matter organizers as part of a negotiated arrangement, after hundreds of activists filed petitions, filled courtrooms and led rallies in recent weeks accusing prosecutors and police of using the charges to silence a critical voice.

>Melina Abdullah, a California State University, Los Angeles professor who often speaks out against Los Angeles Police Department policies, was facing charges of assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest, as well as multiple counts of disturbing a public meeting and unlawful assembly in connection with incidents that took place during the often-contentious gatherings of the city’s civilian Police Commission in 2017 and 2018.

There's also the possibility that it was more of a "technical" offense ... Assaulting a police officer could be simply shaking their hand off your arm if they grab you. They may not want to show the footage if it was something that could easily be interpreted as "not a big deal" even if it was technically assault and resisting.

Celeste Barber fought back when Santa Barbara Community College (SBCC) banned the Pledge of Allegiance from its public meetings by reciting it at a meeting last week where she was mocked to the point of tears.
SBCC Board of Trustees President Robert Miller recently removed the pledge from public meeting agendas and when Barber wrote an email objecting, Miller responded with a scathing rebuke of the American tradition of honoring flag and country because it “has a history steeped in expressions of nativism and white nationalism” and referred to another who described it as expressing “bigotry.”

FamilyTreeDNA, an early pioneer of the rapidly growing market for consumer genetic testing, confirmed late Thursday that it has granted the Federal Bureau of Investigation access to its vast trove of nearly 2 million genetic profiles.

“The deal between FamilyTreeDNA and the FBI is deeply flawed,” said John Verdi, vice president of policy at the Future of Privacy Forum, which maintains the list. “It’s out of line with industry best practices, it’s out of line with what leaders in the space do and it’s out of line with consumer expectations.”

Some idiots in the field have even begun arguing that a universal, government-controlled database may be better for privacy than allowing law enforcement to gain access to consumer information.

The average tax refund from the IRS dropped 8.4 percent in the first week of the 2019 filing season compared to the same period last year, according to agency statistics.

The dip, to $1,865 from $2,035, is an early barometer of the season, which is being watched more closely than usual because it reflects the first full year under the 2017 tax overhaul and comes on the heels of a protracted government shutdown that hit the IRS just as it was gearing up for the annual exercise.

The number of individual tax returns received and processed by the IRS also fell sharply year over year, by 12.4 percent and 25.8 percent, respectively. The data for this year cover Jan. 28 to Feb. 1, matched against Jan. 29 to Feb. 2, 2018.

The data reflect only one week of filing in a process that will last until April 15 for most taxpayers, and refund predictions by tax experts have been all over the map. Morgan Stanley has estimated they will rise by 26 percent, but others are less optimistic.

“There are going to be a lot of unhappy people over the next month,” said Edward Karl, vice president of taxation for the American Institute of CPAs. “Taxpayers want a large refund."

>the federal deduction is nearly double and almost all tax brackets are 1-3 lower
The standard deduction increased from $6350 to $12000 but the personal exemption of $4050 was taken away, so it's really only an increase of $1900 rather than $5650. If you have children your overall deduction actually goes down instead of up.
This is the fault of Trump and the Republicans playing politics with taxes where they pressured the IRS to have people's paychecks increase right before the election.

But now it has the predictable end where it looks like Trump raised taxes on people.

Thoughts and prayers to those Trump voters.

Delicious Trumpfag tears as they realized they were fooled by Don the con.
Hey idiots!!!! If you pay less in taxes, you get less of a refund!!! How fucking stupid can you be?
yes, referring to the insurance racketeering, it is racketeering because they are trying to force us to pay into a scam that pretty much doesn't cover anything. the protection from that type of fraud passed by the republicans doesn't kick in till next year. wish someone would do a class action against the DNC to reimburse everyone for any penalties paid to date
