"...CAR found that one anti-tank missile sold to the U.S. Army made its way to ISIS in just 59 days.

“This is extremely short,” said Damien Spleeters, the group's researcher for Iraq and Syria, told NBC News during a recent field visit to Tal Afar, Iraq. “It means that there are not many intermediaries in this chain of custody.”..."

Also be aware that BitCoin user data is being handed over to the IRS now under the guise that it is to prevent terrorism. What's really going on is that the government wants to tax you and have BitCoin come into the fold of the central bank system.

"...Their [Convoy Investments] asset bubble chart released a month ago, went viral after showing that among all of the world's most famous asset bubbles, bitcoin was only lagging the 17th-century tulip bulb mania. The analysts have updated the chart to show the price of the digital currency has more than doubled in just a month. So, as of now, bitcoin has won the global bubble race, finally having surpassed the “Tulips.”..."

 For those who have not studied history there was a tulip bulb bubble in which people invested large chunks of money to buy tulip bulbs but then the entire bubble popped in Feb 1637 and everybody lost all of their money. That was the biggest bubble in history until bitcoin.  I would posit that when the bit coin bubble bursts it could cause an economic collapse because of the derivatives (side-bets) collapse that would likely ensue.

War / US weapons supplied to ISIS

"...So how exactly did American weapons end up with ISIS? Spleeters can’t yet say for sure. According to a July 19, 2017, report in The Washington Post, the US government secretly trained and armed Syrian rebels from 2013 until mid-2017, at which point the Trump administration discontinued the program—in part over fears that US weapons were ending up in the wrong hands. The US government did not reply to multiple requests for comment on how these weapons wound up in the hands of Syrian rebels or in an ISIS munitions factory. The government also declined to comment on whether the US violated the terms of its end-user certificate and, by extension, failed to comply with the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, of which it is one of 130 signatories..."

General News/Discussion / Breitbart article: Retail Sale Blow Away Expectations
« Last post by NetRanger on December 14, 2017, 03:40:34 PM »
Dave,

I listen to the report most every day. This article is in opposition of what you report. I've know Breitbart to be pretty hard right and ignore reality, however, what they're saying makes a little sense. Are they just shilling for the right or are things really improving? Tell me why this is so counter to your reports, please.

Sears Holdings reported a third-quarter loss Thursday as the ailing department-store chain seeks stability and faces a critical test during the holiday shopping season.

After more than 400 recently announced store closures aimed at removing its weak spots, Sears said it lost $558 million for the quarter ended Oct. 28.

Despite the red ink, investors were heartened at first, sending shares up at much as 28% before they turned lower by late afternoon..

With gift buying in full swing, Sears confronts the challenge of  trying to draw shoppers to stores as they increasingly flock online or to the retailer's nimbler physical competitors.

Like other retailers, the company is aiming to bolster its shop-online-pick-up-in-store options to generate more business. Sears is also betting on a ramped-up loyalty program, called Shop Your Way, to lure customers.

Australian retail sales tumbled in August, continuing a worrying downturn seen in recent months.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), nominal spending fell by 0.6% in seasonally adjusted terms, missing forecasts for an increase of 0.3%.

The decline was larger than even the most pessimistic forecast offered by an individual economist, and was the steepest monthly decline since March 2013.

Excluding food, providing a better guide to spending on discretionary items, sales fell by a smaller 0.5%, leaving the increase on a year earlier at 2%.

Sales for July, originally reported as flat by the ABS, were also revised down to show a decline of 0.2%.

As a result of the ugly August report and downward revision to July’s figure, the year-on-year pace of sales slowed to 2.13%, the slowest increase since July 2013.

Amazon Australia has just launched. Let the scapegoating begin. Children's T-shirts at major clothing / homewares discount retailer Best & Less are as low as $2.75 - unheard of in my time, when I was parenting children.

Vaccinations for Australia

There are no mandatory shots required to enter Australia.

It is always worth having a Tetanus/Diphtheria shot done if one has not been given in the past 10 years. Doing the shot now will provide 10 years of Tetanus protection and means that in the event of a cut, it will not be necessary to look for a Tetanus shot.

If a traveller is stopping off in South East Asia while going to or returning from Australia, it is a good idea to get a shot done to cover Hepatitis A/typhoid.

The risk of Rabies in Australia is virtually nil. The risk is Hepatitis B is extremely small.

Additional vaccinations for South East Asia to cover Hepatitis B and Rabies should be considered by travellers planning to:

    Undertake voluntary work in South East Asia (orphanages, hospices)
    Spend several weeks in rural or poor regions or South East Asia (e.g Laos, Cambodia, Burma).
