What would a legitimste response by Trump as prssident be?
"Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you," Schumer told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
"So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he's being really dumb to do this."
How should a democratically elected government deal with an unelected deep state leaking lies to preclude any possibility of rapprochement with Russia because their budgets depend on conflict and having an existential enemy.
After Government Threatens Fines, Facebook Will Test Out Fake News Filtering in Germany
In December, German lawmakers announced plans to introduce a bill that would fine Facebook 500,000 euros (or about $535,000) for not removing fake news posts within 24 hours. On Sunday, the Financial Times reported that the company will be testing its fake news filtering system in—you guessed it—Germany!
Facebook announced in December that it was building a way for users to report fake news on the site—now it seems the country will be one of the first places to try it out. In an email to Gizmodo, the company said it began testing a similar filter in the United States a month ago.
Trump vows ‘insurance for everybody’ in Obamacare replacement plan
President-elect Donald Trump said in a weekend interview that he is nearing completion of a plan to replace President Obama’s signature health-care law with the goal of “insurance for everybody,” while also vowing to force drug companies to negotiate directly with the government on prices in Medicare and Medicaid.

Animal rights activists claim major win in Ringling Bros. closing
The move came as circuses and animal-performance shows across the country have struggled with declining attendance and shifting social pressure brought to bear by activists who argued the animals were sometimes poorly treated. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus removed elephants from its performances last May, and the company said ticket sales then dropped drastically. The company had long battled animal rights activists in costly court skirmishes — winning a $15.75 million judgment against them in 2015 — but apparently lost the larger fight over public opinion.
“IT’S OVER,” actress and animal rights advocate Pamela Anderson posted to her 1.07 million Twitter followers.
PETA, which has crusaded against animal treatment, lauded the decision and said the trend should accelerate. “All other animal circuses, roadside zoos, and wild animal exhibitors, including marine amusement parks like SeaWorld and the Miami Seaquarium, must take note: Society has changed, eyes have been opened, people know now who these animals are, and we know it is wrong to capture and exploit them.”

>Navy and Marine Corps brass, accompanied by green energy executives, showcased the energy-harnessing knee braces and other innovations at a renewable energy demonstration at Twentynine Palms Marine Corps base, one of many such events that have taken place at military bases across the country as part of the Defense Department's unprecedented shift away from fossil fuels under the Obama administration. The Pentagon has invested millions over the past decade into everything from hybrid electric ships to wind turbines.
>While a growing number of military leaders have declared global warming a national security threat, the strategy clashes with President-elect Donald Trump's vow to end policies that "undermine" fossil fuel producers. Trump has a chosen a Cabinet with climate change skeptics, though his pick for defense secretary, retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, has advocated green technology to curtail risky fuel-supply runs for troops in conflict zones.
>Military leaders say alternative energy makes warriors more agile and effective on today's battlefields.
>At the recent demonstrations, a Marine wore knee braces with tiny generators that transformed the energy he produced from walking to recharge batteries. The technology allows troops to generate their own power for as long as three days. The event also featured a M777 howitzer and a drone that use solar power.
>Rising sea levels threaten Navy bases worldwide, and it would be "shortsighted" for the military not to address climate change, Bryan said.
>The most contentious initiative has been the purchase of biofuel for ships. Critics say while ships may leave port with a biofuel mix, they still must rely on foreign oil in many places near battlefields and the plant-based fuel has become more expensive than traditional fuel.
> According to a 2015 report from the Government Accountability Office, Congress' research arm, the Pentagon paid $58.6 million for 2 million gallons of alternative fuel from 2007 to 2014, or about $29 per gallon. At the same time, it spent $107.2 billion for 32 billion gallons of petroleum, paying about $3 per gallon.

VICE: Pony Nationalism and the Furred Reich: Inside the Alt-Furry's Online Zoo
Does it come as a surprise that the alt-right would identify themselves with beasts?
By now Pepe the frog, grotesque comic muse and focal point of widespread "meme magic," has become something of a household name. But a closer look at the alt-right reveals conservative animals of all stripes, a veritable zoo of foxes and wolves, mythical creatures and pastel-colored ponies led by a furry Trump, cast as an extremely smug-looking anthropomorphized lion.
Personally I was baffled by the contradictions within a movement which preaches tolerance for fursuits and "yiffing" (furry sex), but which rails against Islam and Black Lives Matter. I also worried that I’d be offering the furry alt-right a free pass, by inviting them to explain themselves. Still, this unlikely faction goes some way to explaining absurdities of the broader movement, which—for all its gross-out humor and ragged edges—appears to be gaining mainstream credibility.
I spoke to several members of alt-furry and the brony right in Twitter DMs to get a clearer picture of the movement. In offline life, BroniesForTrump/@GWSSDelta is an accountant living in the state of Delaware. Online, he’s a right wing brony and a member of a chat group called the Horse Reich.
I found myself hoping that @GWSSDelta was not serious, when he wrote, on voting for Trump, “I just wanted to make sure bronies have a place in Richard Spencer’s ethnostate.”
“Alt-furry is not anything new at all—it’s a phenomenon which predates the name,” @TheQuQu told me, listing other wings of the alt-right the furries get along with including “the PaulTown wing of the alt-right, the alt-bronies, right-libertarians, nationalists, and even ancaps (anarcho-capitalists) and Randian objectivists.” As with all of the alt-furries/alt-bronies I spoke to, he is male, American (“but of European descent”), and disarmingly well spoken.
However alt-furries have clashed with parts of the alt-right, including religious members who “view the rejection of the form of man as idolatry or subversion of god’s will,” and label furry fandom as a form of degeneracy.
Bernie Sanders’s claim that ‘36,000 people will die yearly’ if Obamacare is repealed
“As Republicans try to repeal the Affordable Care Act, they should be reminded every day that 36,000 people will die yearly as a result.”
How is this number calculated and is it credible?
For context, more than 2.6 million people died in the United States in 2015, or nearly 7,200 per day. So Sanders is suggesting repeal of the law would increase the number of deaths by 1.4 percent.
Sanders obtained the figure of 36,000 from a calculation by ThinkProgress, a left-leaning website, according to his aides. Essentially, ThinkProgress assumed that repeal will result in 29.8 million people losing their insurance and that one person will die for every 830 people who lose their insurance. That yields a number of 35,903.
So this is an estimate based on two other estimates. How credible are the other two estimates?

Mexico warns Trump on tariffs: We'll respond 'immediately'
"It's very clear that we have to be prepared to immediately be able to neutralize the impact of a measure of that nature," economy minister Ildefonso Guajardo said Friday on a Mexican news show.
Guajardo also predicted that Trump's threat of a 35% tariff against Mexico, if carried out, would result in a "global recession" because it would inhibit companies from producing outside the U.S.
"It would be a problem for the entire world," Guajardo warned. A Trump tariff "will have a wave of impacts that can take us into a global recession," Guajardo said, speaking in Spanish.
In recent weeks, Trump has zeroed in on companies manufacturing in Mexico and selling products in the United States, threatening them with a "major border tax" of 35%.
Hitler was a horrible monster.
Is it even worth debating?
He was a failure as a leader and a human being; this is universally accepted.
Why even discuss the actions of this mad demagogue?
I mean, think about it… the guy rises to a position of absolute power, with (arguably) the most powerful army in Europe.
He's Blitzkrieging all over the place, Churchill is trying to appease his demands to avoid a full-out war, he's essentially unstoppable: and then comes the horror of the Holocaust.
What kind of demonic possesion would cause a man in his position to use his power to practically wipe out the jewish people and culture in Germany?
The final death toll was estimated at 4-6 million jews, despite the -years- in power that they could have been executing the Jewish people.
The death toll could have been much, much higher.
Hitler was a disgrace to the human race, more a monster than man.
Even discussing his actions, despite his motives, is an affront to all that is pure and good.
The most unfortunate thing is that he took his own life before the proper punishment could be bestowed on him for his terrible failure.

GOP's Go-Slow 'Rescue Mission' Plan To Replace Obamacare

White Nationalists' Enthusiasm For Trump Cools
Next week, white nationalists like Jared Taylor will celebrate a moment they've been waiting decades to see, when Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Members of the white nationalist movement were among the first to embrace Trump's candidacy, and they celebrated after his election.
"Jan. 20 reflects a significant defeat for egalitarian orthodoxy," Taylor says.
Taylor promotes a very different orthodoxy, one in which race is central to innate abilities and national success. He is working to build a United States explicitly for white people. Trump arguably helps this by telling supporters that they're the victims of a system rigged against them.
"I see Donald Trump as a kind of steppingstone. He is a step in the right direction in terms of understanding America and history and the world in essentially racial terms," Taylor says.
But white nationalist enthusiasm for Trump has fallen off substantially. Since the election, the so-called alt-right has splintered, and the movement now looks a lot less potent than it once appeared.
Trump suggests he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia
President-elect Donald Trump suggested Friday he is open to lifting sanctions on Russia, though he plans to keep them for "at least a period of time."
He told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Friday evening that he might do away with them if Russia helps the US battle terrorists or with other goals important to the US. The sanctions were implemented by the Obama administration last month in response to alleged Russian hacking during the election.
"If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody's doing some really great things?" he said in the interview.
Trump's remarks to the Wall Street Journal come after CNN reported classified documents presented to President Barack Obama and Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Trump. He has vehemently denied the allegations.
Speaking to the Journal, Trump said he's prepared to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin after he takes office.
"I understand that they would like to meet, and that's absolutely fine with me," he said.
When asked about China – specifically if he supported the US "One China" policy on Taiwan, which says the province is part of China – Trump responded, "Everything is under negotiation, including One China."
Donations Pour In to Band From Black College That Will Play at Inauguration
The Talladega College Marching Tornadoes band took a lot of heat in the last few weeks for agreeing to perform in Donald J. Trump’s inaugural parade. But on Friday the band learned that political heat can also be quite lucrative.
Talladega, a small, historically black college in Alabama, had been struggling to raise the $75,000 to send the band to Washington for the Jan. 20 inauguration.
But after the college’s president, Billy C. Hawkins, appeared Thursday on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News, describing how their choice had been criticized by many, donations from the show’s largely conservative audience flooded in.
The band, which had raised about $50,000 on its GoFundMe page before Mr. Hawkins’s appearance on Fox, took in more than $333,000 by Friday evening.
“Some alumni have come at me pretty hard; they don’t want the band to participate and say I am a disgrace to my race,” Mr. Hawkins told host Bill O’Reilly. “But this is about the students having an opportunity to participate in this national ceremony.”
A number of artists, including prominent African-Americans, have said they would not perform at the inauguration of a president who built his political career leading the birther movement against President Obama, and on the campaign trail refused to disavow white supremacist supporters.
No other historically black colleges are participating in the Trump inaugural events, and the Talladega band had been condemned in the African-American community and by many of the school’s alumni.
But donors, giving mostly between $5 and $20, applauded the students’ courage and independence.
“Ignore the hatred!” a woman who gave $100 said on the GoFundMe page. “Enjoy one of the greatest moments YOUR COUNTRY has to offer. Safe travels and GOD BLESS you all!!!”

Push to Protect ‘Dreamers’ From Trump Gains New GOP Supporters
A group of House Republicans is pushing President-elect Donald Trump to keep in place Obama administration protections for about 750,000 young illegal immigrants, joining with Democrats on legislation to extend a shield on their deportations for another three years.
The legislation, introduced Friday, is a companion to a Senate measure advanced by Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Both bills signal bipartisan unrest over Trump’s campaign pledge to reverse President Barack Obama’s executive orders on deportations, which include protections for young adults brought to the U.S. by their parents when they were children.
While Trump has since said he wants to deport criminals who are illegal immigrants and has promised some solution for the younger immigrants known as “Dreamers,” he’s provided no specifics about his intentions.
“The time to act on this is now,” Representative Mike Coffman, a Colorado Republican, said of the proposed extension. “This sends a strong message not just to our leadership but to the incoming administration.”
He was joined by two Florida Republicans – Ileana Ros Lehtinen and Carlos Curbelo – on legislation also led by Democrats who seek aid for the immigrants, including Luis Gutierrez of Illinois. All three of the Republicans are from House districts that have heavy concentrations of Latino voters and they all overcame re-election challenges where they had to contend with Trump’s campaign promises on immigration. Trump’s pledges included building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and returning 11 million undocumented immigrants to their home countries.
Fingerprints and Addresses
The young immigrants at issue provided information including fingerprints and relatives’ home addresses when they applied for protection under the president’s 2012 executive order, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. They received renewable, two-year work permits and Social Security cards as part of the program.
Obama took his action after Congress stalled for years on legislation called the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act, which would have provided a path to legal status.
Supporters of the young immigrants are concerned that the information they gave to the government could be used to expel them from the U.S. under a Trump administration. Trump has said since the election that his chief intention is to deport criminals, which he estimates to be about 3 million of the illegal immigrant population.
At a CNN town hall Thursday night, House Speaker Paul Ryan said there are no plans for a “deportation force” after Trump is inaugurated. He also said there are ongoing talks between congressional leaders and Trump’s transition team on an appropriate policy for the young immigrants, adding that all sides want a “good, humane solution.”
Curbelo said the support for the legislation runs deep in the House, if Republican leaders were to take the unlikely step of putting it to a vote. Most House Democrats support it, and he said he estimates that at least 60 Republicans would back it.
“There are many, many Republicans and Democrats in this Congress who want to do right by these young people,” he said.
AT&T (T) could spin off cable news channel CNN as part of concessions to get Trump administration approval of its Time Warner (TWX) acquisition, speculates a Wells Fargo analyst.
AT&T, through a spokesman, declined to comment on any possible CNN spinoff.
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson met with President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday. AT&T issued a statement saying the pair did not discuss the telecom giant's proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner. Trump and Stephenson discussed job growth, the phone company's capital spending and other economic topics, AT&T said.
Trump voiced opposition to the $85 billion deal while campaigning, but he has not stated his position publicly since the election.
"While we expect there likely will be concessions (possibly a CNN spinoff, and continued infrastructure investment by AT&T), from a legal standpoint, we note that if denied this deal would be precedent setting given the fact that no vertical merger in the TMT space has been denied," Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche said in a research report. "While most mergers result in major head count reduction, we do not believe this will be the case with Time Warner/AT&T given there is very little overlap in the core business and expertise."
Trump has feuded with Time Warner's CNN, and on Thursday he retweeted criticism of the cable channel over its political coverage.
Stephenson on Dec. 7 appeared at a hearing held by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on antitrust, competition policy and consumer rights.
Stephenson said AT&T's purchase of Time Warner would be good for consumers and competition, and would spark innovation. Stephenson also said: "Finally, a word about CNN. We are committed to continuing the editorial independence of CNN. That independence is what makes CNN so popular and valuable, and we will not do anything to change that."
The U.S. Department of Justice will review the AT&T-Time Warner merger. It could also face a review by the Federal Communications Commission, though AT&T has contended that the agency's approval likely will not be required.
AT&T stock slipped 5 cents to 40.96 in the stock market today.
Time Warner stock rose 0.31% to 94.14. The media giant's stock has gained since Trump's election win, but it still trades below AT&T's 107.50-per-share offer, a sign investors aren't sure the deal will be approved.
With the Time Warner deal, AT&T aims to leapfrog rival Verizon Communications (VZ), which has agreed to buy web portal Yahoo (YHOO) and which bought AOL last year.
Paul Ryan: Trump mass deportations "not happening"
WASHINGTON – Congressional Republicans are working with the Trump transition team on a solution for immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday.
Hundreds of thousands of these immigrants gained temporary protections and work permits from President Obama. While campaigning for president, Donald Trump promised to undo those protections, putting the immigrants at risk of deportation, although he said last month he hoped to “work something out” to help them.
Ryan didn’t detail what Congress and Mr. Trump would do about the program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. But when questioned on a CNN town hall by a woman who identified herself as a DACA recipient with a young daughter, Ryan told her he did not want to see her deported.
“I can see you love your daughter, you are a nice person who has a great future ahead of you, and I hope your future is here,” Ryan said.
“What we have to do is find a way to make sure that you can get right with the law, and we’ve got to do this in a good way so that the rug doesn’t get pulled out from under you and your family gets separated.”
Host Jake Tapper pointed out that Mr. Trump, during the campaign, promised a “deportation force” to round up the more than 11 million immigrants in the country illegally. Ryan dismissed that idea.
“I’m here to tell you in Congress, it’s not happening.”
Instead, Ryan said Mr. Trump has asked lawmakers to focus on two priorities with respect to illegal immigration: securing the border and deporting immigrants who are violent, repeat criminals.
House GOP lawmakers and aides have also said recently they’re working on how to pay for border security to make good on Mr. Trump’s promise of building a wall on the border with Mexico, although at least initially taxpayers would foot the bill - not Mexico, as Mr. Trump promised.
DACA has extended work permits and temporary deportation relief to more than 700,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as youths since its creation in 2012. Mr. Trump has said it and other Obama executive actions are unconstitutional, since they involved going around Congress, a position Ryan repeated Thursday.
DACA permits need to be renewed every two years, so Mr. Trump could cancel out the program over time by ordering agencies to stop processing new applications and renewals. There is high anxiety in immigrant communities about what he will do.
“We have to figure out how to have a humane solution to this very legitimate, sincere problem and respect the rule of law,” Ryan said.
Imagine you're eating an apple.
This seems like a simple "event", you, the subject, are eating, verbing, the apple, the object.
There's two things, you and the apple, and the verb "eating" quickly tells us who's the boss owing to the laws of syntax. But if we try to define these things we quickly run into some difficulties:
Where's the "cut off" for the apple, as in, where does it end and begin? In our day to day dealings, using geometrical space containing a majority of transparent oxygen is a convenient measure for demarcating objects. So the apple ends at the green skin, and the bite mark. However, this is obviously just a pragmatic and intuitive short hand at the macro (molar) level. Surely we can find a more "objective" edge by zooming in to this edge and drawing up a line. As we zoom in to the edge of the apple, though, a nice clear line doesn't reveal itself, the edge rather, like a fractal, becomes more and more ambiguous. We discover that other things are eating the apple too, that the skin is porous, that chemical reactions are exploding off it, we find that our bodies (hands), are effortlessly transferring energy in the form of heat into the apple, which is causing other imperceptible (at the macro level) chemical shifts (and this heat is being caused by our own digestive systems digesting the apple). Now we are "zoomed in" these tiny transformations in the apple are huge. Around the bite mark there's even saliva, containing our DNA, bubbling and transforming the sugars in the apple and reacting with the acid, with particles flaking off and floating through the air in a cloud being sucked up through our noses, so even "where does the eating begin and end" is beginning to get blurry…
Assange agrees to extradition if US releases whistleblower
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will agree to be extradited to the United States if President Barack Obama grants clemency to the former US soldier Chelsea Manning, jailed for leaking documents, the company said on Thursday.
"If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ (US Department of Justice) case," WikiLeaks wrote on Twitter.
Assange has been living in the Ecuadoran embassy in London since June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations.
The Australian former computer hacker said he fears Stockholm will in turn extradite him to the US, where he angered Washington over WikiLeaks' publication of thousands of US military and diplomatic documents leaked by former US soldier Manning.
Manning is currently serving a 35-year sentence in solitary confinement for handing over the 700,000 sensitive documents from the US State Department.
Supporters of the transgender soldier are putting their hopes in a pardon by Obama before he leaves office later this month, although the White House has said the president will not be granting her clemency.

Legal & Historical Justification For Race War/Genocide
When the jews push palestinians off of their land they have bullshit legal agreements, treaties, etc. to do it right and give them the justification.
When we did the same thing to Native North Americans we had similar shit.
When many nations such as Germany wanted to expand their borders, they did it on the basis of German people living or having lived historically in those areas.
Always there is some historical and legal justifications used for genocide.
What kind of narrative can we manufacture to use ourselves to kill off our racial enemies in our lands? So we can take regain control of our nations and expel the mud races?
There were two unclaimed explosions in Damascus overnight Thursday and early Friday (Jan.12-13) – one at an officers club in Damascus and the second at Mezzeh airport, which Syria alleged was the work of the new Israeli S-35 stealth aircraft firing across the border from a point over the Sea of Galilee.
Tehran, having grasped from bitter experience that Mezzeh is under close surveillance by Israeli intelligence, no longer uses its facilities. Instead Iran flies arms shipments for Hizballah to Beirut by commercial aircraft, which Israel prefers not to attack, or overland through Iraq to northwestern Syria, where the consignments are picked up and transferred to Lebanon by sea.
So if an Israeli F-35 air strike on the Damascus airport should be confirmed, its target would not have been Iranian and Hizballah military supplies. Mezzeh is the site of a sterile zone set aside for the exclusive use of President Bashar Assad, his family and his top military and intelligence chiefs. It also houses laboratories for developing and manufacturing unconventional weapons, as well serving as the main command center for the 4th Division, whose Republican Guard unit protects the president, his family and members of the ruling caste.
In the first attack, a suicide bomber blew himself up Thursday night at the officers’ club in the heavily policed Kafra Sousa district of Damascus. At least ten people were killed and dozens injured. Located there are the homes of many Assad loyalists in the security and military establishments, as well as top secret facilities.
The ability of a suicide bomber to penetrate one of the most heavily secured locations in Damascus and blow up at an exclusive regime watering hole raises questions about the inner workings of the Assad regime.
Some unknown hand struck into the heart of that regime in the space of a few hours – not once, but twice.The Assad regime used its standard scapegoat, Israel, for covering up embarrassing and inexplicable occurrences.
In an attempt to pierce the resulting aura of mistrust spreading over the staunch Iranian-Syrian alliance, Ali Shamkhani, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran and one of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s closest confidants, was sent to Damascus Sunday, Jan 8, to find out what is going on there

How do I stop my parents from perpetually keeping me in the role of a child? I'm 24 and they still treat me like I'm an 8 year old, except I often see 8 year olds who have more independence, respect, and freedom than me. They embarrass me over & over and never fuck off and I can not have any life with them perpetually fucking everything up. If this keeps going I will never be respected, never have a gf, never have friends, and will just be looked at as some overgrown manchild. I dream of killing them or running away but these things are not realistic. I don't see a way out except maybe find a job that takes me far away and the job provides housing and Internet and all that stuff, letting me post on boards like this in my downtime, while working the rest of the time.

Boots recalled after swastikas discovered on soles
A military-style Polar Fox boot is being recalled after a Reddit user discovered the soles of the shoe leave a swastika-like mark on the ground.
"There was an angle I didn't get to see when ordering my new work boots," the user wrote. Reddit users rattled off numerous puns after seeing the symbol.
"Very comfortable. Nein out of ten," wrote one user.
"This is das boot for me," wrote another.

Drone Swarm target #1: North Korea
Meanwhile the leadership out in Pacific Command (PACOM) anxiously awaits of the arrival of the Zumwalt-class destroyers to the Western Pacific, where the ship is being slated for patrols off the North Korean coast to help curtail that country’s aggressive missile plans.
Above all, the multi-function radar must properly manage the radar’s resources to direct or redirect its RF energy as well as receive and process signals to predict the courses of enemy missiles, track and illuminate targets and guide weapons fired from its own ship. The radar searches and analyzes return reflections, computes bearings and courses, predicts where a target will be based on data and algorithms – and then adjusts or readjusts based on missile trajectory, speed and other attributes. Speedier missiles require speedier processing.
Such engineering kinks are to be expected, says Adm. Harry Harris, PACOM commander. The important thing is that the ship is making its way toward the West Pacific.
The Zumwalts, he says, will make PACOM’s forces more lethal. The ship’s 155-mm Advanced Guy System and other attributes make it just the kind of platform needed to confront the North Korean threat, he says. “There’s no more immediate threat.”
Into North Korea it goes!
The Navy is expanding the mission portfolio of its emerging submarine-hunting drone ship so that it can conduct surface warfare missions, fire weapons and launch electronic attacks, service developers said.
The Pentagon’s research arm is also extending testing of its sub-hunting drone able to travel autonomously for up to 90 days using sensors and sonar technology to search for enemy submarines and other airborne and undersea threats such as mines.
Picking up the quiet hum of a battery-powered, ==diesel-electric== submarine in busy coastal waters is “like trying to identify the sound of a single car engine in the din of a major city,” Rear Adm. Frank Drennan, commander of the Naval Mine and Anti-Submarine Warfare Command, stated on the Leidos website.
In a recent demonstration that took place in the lower Chesapeake Bay, a swarm of rigid-hull inflatable boats, or RHIBs, and other small boats were takes with performing patrol missions autonomously, with remote human direction but no direct supervision, according to a news release from the Office of Naval Research.
During the demonstration, officials highlighted new capabilities that allow multiple boats to collaborate and take on tasks together, as well as features that further develop the boats’ behaviors and tactics. The swarm of surface boats were allowed to patrol a large area of open water, according to the release. When unknown ships entered the area, the group of boats would task one of the patrol boats with approaching the ship, quickly classify it as harmless or a potential threat, and communicate with the other boats to track the vessel as it continued onward, if it was determined necessary to do so, officials said.
All the while, the unmanned boats were providing updates to a remote human supervisor.
“This technology allows unmanned Navy ships to overwhelm an adversary,” Cmdr. Luis Molina, military deputy for ONR’s Sea Warfare and Weapons Dept, said in a statement.“ Its sensors and software enable swarming capability, giving naval warfighters a decisive edge.”
The boats may next be tasked with taking on dangerous missions that would have previously risked the lives of human warfighters, according to the release.
Major Stratfor Predictions 2017
A Make or Break Year for Venezuela:
>Some political unrest is all but unavoidable. As the threat of default looms, Venezuela's currency will likely further weaken, driving inflation even higher than it is now. (Inflation is high because the government cut exports to keep making its debt payments.) The ruling party will try to contain unrest through security crackdowns and through increased control of the nation's food distribution networks.But the fate of the government rests in the hands of the armed forces. So far, the various factions of the government, including the armed forces, have presented a mostly united front against the political opposition. But there is dissension in the ranks; some factions are inclined to hold on to power as long as possible. If Caracas defaults on its debt, the government would initially band together to tighten internal security, but its cohesion would be tested by the intensity and duration of the ensuing unrest. If factions of the armed forces believe siding with the government threatens their power, they may have to reconsider where their loyalty lies.
Instability in Somalia:
>In 2017, the security environment will be even more fragile as AMISOM struggles to maintain its current troop levels, let alone increase them. And its fragility will give al Shabaab even more room to acquire territory and to pressure the international mission.
>The Ethiopian government will apply heavy-handed security measures to try to contain unrest, but it will be unable to do so among the marginalized ethnic groups in the countryside. There is therefore a possibility for the lightly armed opposition to cohere and upgrade to bigger weapons.
Middle East and North Africa
A Test for U.S.-Iran Relations:
>2017 will test the durability of U.S.-Iranian relations. The new U.S. government is expected to be less tolerant of what it sees as Iranian aggression — naval harassment and ballistic missile testing, for example — even if it does not directly infringe on the nuclear deal. Strong U.S. responses to such aggression would, from Iran's point of view, be a violation of the agreement, but Iran can be expected to challenge the agreement only if the United States does first. (Russia stands to benefit from U.S.-Iranian tensions.)
The State of the Islamic State:
>More resourceful grassroots terrorists that do not have to rely on extensive networks and capabilities will be the bigger threat from Islamic State in 2017, especially for the West.
>But 2017 will also present Israel with a variety of challenges. To its north, it will have to contend with Hezbollah, arguably more powerful and experienced than it has been in years. Worried about Hezbollah's military strength, cognizant that it will have a window of opportunity, and unencumbered by Washington's reproach, Israel is likely to intensify its operations in Syria and Lebanon in an attempt to weaken Hezbollah

Oregon woman evicted from senior housing for $328 in late rent freezes to death in parking garage
Karen Batts, 52, died from hypothermia Saturday in the Smart Park parking garage in Portland, Oregon, homeless over $338 in delinquent rent. Batts is the second person to freeze to death, alone, on Portland’s streets in 2017.
Police were called to 730 SW 10th Avenue on Saturday afternoon because of reports that a woman was in the parking garage removing her clothes.
While it may seem counter-intuitive, hypothermia victims will often frantically remove clothing as the condition worsens because nerve damage can cause them to feel very hot, like they are on fire.
Batts had been living at a building for seniors and people with disabilities managed by Cascade Management, Inc. and Northwest Housing Alternatives, LLC, designed to be affordable for persons of limited means, until October, when she was evicted.
Multnomah County court records say Batts was evicted October 14 for being at least seven days late with the $338 rent for August — she was sent a 72-hour notice on September 9 warning her of the balance she owed. Building managers sued to evict Batts when she had not paid by October 6, and won by default when she did not show up for the hearing on October 14.
The executive director of one of the companies which manages the building, Martha McLennan of Northwest Housing Alternatives, told a reporter for local KATU-TV news that Batts had been a tenant since 2007 and had undergone a “change” of late. McLennan said “there were a variety of lease violations that were either damage of property or late payments, also incidents against staff and other tenants.”
