$10 Trillion Missing from Pentagon and No One — Not Even the DoD — Knows Where It Is

Over a mere two decades, the Pentagon lost track of a mind-numbing $10 trillion — that’s trillion, with a fat, taxpayer-funded “T” — and no one, not even the Department of Defense, really knows where it went or on what it was spent. Even though audits of all federal agencies became mandatory in 1996, the Pentagon has apparently made itself an exception, and — fully 20 years later — stands obstinately orotund in never having complied.

editorial: Automation Threatens Jobs But Offers Financial Freedom

Despite sensational headlines and opportunistic politicking regarding the threat automation poses to socioeconomic stability, with a fully informed, properly educated population, more opportunities than threats lie ahead of us in the near future. Automation has since the Industrial Revolution replaced human jobs with machines. As technology advances and automation evolves, the socioeconomic landscape of human civilization has evolved with it.

Why Middle Class Whites Are Dying Faster (In 6 Painful Charts)

In 2015, a blockbuster study came to a surprising conclusion: Middle-aged white Americans are dying younger for the first time in decades, despite positive life expectancy trends in other wealthy countries and other segments of the US population. The research, by Princeton University’s Anne Case and Angus Deaton, highlighted the links between economic struggles, suicides, and alcohol and drug overdoses. Since then, Case and Deaton have been working to more fully explain their findings.

New York Times Reviewer Insists Jihadist Attacks in US Are ‘Relatively Few’

Writing about a Showtime documentary titled “American Jihad,” a television reviewer for the New York Times reports that the film “examines several of the relatively few instances of jihad-inspired terrorism in the United States.”
“Relatively few”?
The phrase stopped me in my tracks.
The 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The 1994 murder of Ari Halberstam on the Brooklyn Bridge. The 2001 World Trade Center bombing. The 2009 Fort Hood shooting. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The 2015 San Bernardino attack. The 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting.
How many people have to die before the Times stops describing these attacks as “relatively few”? There might be even more such attacks except that the government, over the objections of the Times, has taken certain steps to try to prevent them.
“Relatively few” is Times code for “not a problem that you should worry much about.” It’s not language you’ll often see in Times coverage of, say, school shootings, or Trump-era anti-Semitism and xenophobic violence.
The jihad-inspired attacks aren’t few relative to, say, Torah-inspired terrorism in the United States, which, thankfully, is pretty much nonexistent. In fact, relative to that, radical Islamist terrorism is relatively plentiful. The Times reviewer doesn’t explain what the jihad-inspired attacks are few relative to, he just says that they are “relatively few.” Forgive me if I find that less than totally reassuring.
There may be some editors wise enough to eliminate this sort of nonsense from the columns of the Times, but, alas, relatively few of them were apparently on duty when this television review was edited.

Gas From Israel And The Flynn Wiretapping - Behind The Deep-State Infighting Over The Trump Election

What is really behind the deep-state infighting over the U.S. elections and the "wire tapping" of the Trump campaign? Why was the CIA-Neocon axis vehemently lobbying against Trump? What foreign interests and what money is involved in this? Answers to these questions are now emerging.
