Not, like, initiating a full-scale manipulation of the stratosphere next week, but at least looking into the idea. “It’s very important that we understand what our tools are,” he says. “What options do we have? How much risk is there?”
The options are few and the risks murky. Take, for instance, sulfur seeding. The idea is to inject sulfur dioxide into the lower stratosphere, where it turns into sulfur aerosol that reflects light back into space. Problem is, just last month researchers released a study showing that if you injected the stuff into the Northern Hemisphere, you might reduce hurricanes in the Atlantic—and kick off a drought in north-central Africa in the process.
“The president is the commander-in-chief and America’s sole organ when it comes to conducting foreign policy. Article II of the Constitution does not vest this authority in bureaucrats in the State Department,” he told the Free Beacon.
“The State Department must permit Americans born in Jerusalem to list ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ on their passports and must follow the logical implications of this historic recognition in other policy areas,” he added.
But it is Smith who is being inaccurate. As noted in Clinton Cash and the New York Times, the Clintons helped Giustra acquire Kazakh uranium assets in 2005. Mukhtar Dzhakishev, then head of the Kazakh state nuclear agency, who met with the Clintons in Chappaqua, declared in 2010 that Hillary Clinton extorted and pressured Kazakh officials to grant those uranium concessions to Giustra. Shortly after they granted those concessions, $30 million was dropped into Clinton Foundation coffers by Giustra.
Smith never mentions any of this.
All these kids demanding free college, free job training, glamorous job, etc… just the Air Force alone has 2,000 job opening just for you… for free if you learned enough in the 12 + previous years of free education you sat in class through.
This generation needs to stop watching MSNBC and step up and grasp the baton that every generation before them has done. The race has already started and they are losing time.
WWIII has seemed to be possible for a long time now… there are 3 choices…. win, lose, spend money on a truce for 50-60 years…. so that leaves 2.
The biggest reason for the pilot shortage, in the secretary’s view, “is that we are too small for all the missions that we’re being asked to carry out on behalf of the nation — and as a result, we’re burning out our people.”
“Surge has become the new normal in the United States Air Force, and you can do that for a year, or two years, or maybe even three or four years. But we’re asking — I met someone last week who has just come back from his 17th deployment — 17 deployments,” she continued. “Less than one percent of Americans serve in uniform and protect the rest of us, and they are carrying a very heavy burden. And at some point, families make a decision: that they just can’t keep doing this at this pace, and I think that’s the biggest thing we’re facing, is we’re burning out our people, because we’re too small for what the nation is asking.”
Really good explanation of why it is smart to encrypt everything you store online in a ‘virtual/cloud drive’ at Google, Microsoft, or Amazon.
Yet if the leaks did emanate from Mueller’s office or the grand jury itself, it would be a criminal violation.
And if Mueller is upset about the violations of grand jury secrecy, he hasn’t said anything about it publicly.
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, met with a Russian lawyer before and after a key meeting she had last year with Trump’s son, Fox News has learned. The contacts shed new light on how closely tied the firm was to Russian interests, at a time when it was financing research to discredit then-candidate Donald Trump.
Frankly, it strikes me as downright peculiar that Facebook was so Johnny-on-the-spot with this earlier in 2017, publicly confessing to its role in endangering the election by selling ad promotions, and making seemingly specific, numbers-encrusted disclosures about its own actions. But now all that public-spirited confessing and data surveying has ended ingloriously in an inexplicable deletion of the data.
Twitter, reportedly, deleted its data in accordance with company policy, as soon as the accounts were identified as Russian-front troll accounts and terminated. (That means, in fact, that there hasn’t been Twitter account data to peruse for months. Worth keeping in mind, as fresh reporting creates the impression that we know something new about all this.)
But a century of communism in power—with holdouts even now in Cuba, North Korea and China—has made clear the human cost of a political program bent on overthrowing capitalism. Again and again, the effort to eliminate markets and private property has brought about the deaths of an astounding number of people. Since 1917—in the Soviet Union, China, Mongolia, Eastern Europe, Indochina, Africa, Afghanistan and parts of Latin America—communism has claimed at least 65 million lives, according to the painstaking research of demographers.
