Three Officials Charged With Evidence Tampering in Flint Water Crisis*

Three Officials Charged With Evidence Tampering in Flint Water Crisis*

Two officials from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and a Flint city employee were charged with misdemeanours and felonies on Wednesday for their role in the water crisis that poisoned the city.

Flint employee Michael Glasgow and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality employees Steven Busch and Michael Prysby became the first to be charged in relation to the scandal.

MLive reports:

“Glasgow is accused of tampering with evidence when he allegedly changed testing results to show there was less lead in city water than there actually was. He is also charged with willful neglect of office. Prysby and Busch are charged with misconduct in office, conspiracy to tamper with evidence, tampering with evidence, a treatment violation of the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act and a monitoring violation of the Safe Drinking Water.”

Attorney General Bill Schuette’s office alleges that both Prysby and Busch deliberately misled Environmental Protection Agency regulator Miguel Del Toral by claiming falsely that proper corrosion control was being used, as well as impeding an investigation into the Legionella outbreak that killed 12 people. They are also accused of manipulating lead test results to falsely make it appear that the city’s water was safe.

If convicted on the tampering charge, Glasgow could face up to four years in prison. Busch and Prysby are facing up to five years for misconduct. Warrants for the arrests of all three men were issued on Wednesday.

The contamination of Flint’s water began in April 2014, when the city stopped receiving its supply from Detroit, instead shifting to water taken directly from the Flint River, a source known to have a high corrosive salt content. Corrosive salts in the water damaged the pipes, which contain lead, causing that material to be released into the water.

In October, the state changed the city’s drinking water source back from the polluted Flint River to the Detroit water system.

For a period of at least six months, the EPA and Michigan officials were aware of the poisoning of Flint’s water, but did not publicize their concerns.

BRICS Under Attack: Western Banks, Governments Launch Full-Spectrum Assault On Russia*

BRICS Under Attack: Western Banks, Governments Launch Full-Spectrum Assault On Russia*

By Eric Draitser            

The U.S.-NATO Empire, with its centres of power in Washington, on Wall Street, and in the city of London, is on the offensive against the BRICS countries. This assault takes many forms, each tailored to its specific target.

The ongoing soft coup in Brazil has recently entered a new stage with the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff of the left-wing Workers’ Party. Simultaneously, the destabilization of the ANC-led government in South Africa continues as political forces align to remove President Jacob Zuma. These two situations illustrate clearly the very potent forms of subversion via Western-funded political formations and movements being employed against Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, the bloc of emerging economies also known as BRICS.

However, when it comes to a country as large as Russia, with its vast military capabilities, consolidated and wildly popular political leadership, and growing antagonism toward the West, the tools available to the Empire to undermine and destabilize are in some ways more limited.

Indeed, in the context of Russia, the popular mobilization pretext does not apply, and so that weapon in the imperial arsenal is blunted considerably. But there are other, equally potent (and equally dangerous) methods to achieve the desired effect.

Russia is the target of a multi-faceted, asymmetric campaign of destabilization that has employed economic, political, and psychological forms of warfare, each of which has been specifically designed to inflict maximum damage on the Kremlin. While the results of this multi-pronged assault have been mixed, and their ultimate effect being the subject of much debate, Moscow is, without a doubt, ground zero in a global assault against the BRICS nations.

While Russia is a world class power militarily, it is highly vulnerable economically. For that obvious reason, this area has been a primary focus of the destabilization thrust.

Russia has for decades been overly reliant, if not entirely dependent, on revenues from the energy sector to maintain its economic growth and fund its budget. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration and Russia’s Federal Customs Service, oil and gas sales accounted for 68% of Russia’s total export revenues in 2013. With more than two-thirds of total export revenues and roughly 50% of the federal budget, not to mention 25% of total GDP, coming from oil and gas revenue, Russia’s very economic survival has been as dependent on energy as almost any country in the world.

In light of this, it’s no surprise that the drop in oil prices over the 18-month period from April 2014 to January 2016, which saw prices dive from $105 per barrel to under $30 per barrel, has caused tremendous economic instability in Russia. Even many leading Russian officials have conceded that the negative impact to Russia’s economy is substantial, to say the least.

At the World Economic Forum in January, former Russian Finance Minister Alexey Kudrin explained that not only has the drop in oil prices badly hurt the Russian economy, but the worst may be yet to come. Kudrin noted the potential for prices to drop even further, possibly even below $20 per barrel, and he warned that the impact to the economy will be significant.

Specifically, it’s not just the loss of revenue, but the negative effect on wages and the currency which have many economic analysts and political figures worried.

According to the Russian Federal Statistics Service, real wages for Russian workers have dropped significantly since the end of 2014, with steep declines throughout 2015 continuing into early 2016. This has been felt by ordinary Russians, whose wages have stagnated while inflation causes prices to shoot upwards and who have had to endure belt-tightening in terms of personal consumption, and at the national level, where the Russian government has been facing a potentially large budget shortfall for 2016.

It must be noted, however, that recent months have seen an improvement in the relative performance of the ruble, but the long-term outlook from experts remains gloomy.

This has led many Russian analysts and policymakers to advocate yet again for a decreased dependence on energy revenues. They argue that the current climate could force economic restructuring away from the critical energy sector. Aside from Kudrin, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Trutnev made the case for potential “structural economic reforms,” as did Vladimir Mau of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration.

Writing earlier this year in Vedomosti, Russia’s leading business publication, Mau explained:

“The demand for oil as a commodity depends on technological progress…And it’s not obvious that oil as a fuel will be always in demand in times of economic growth. With the change of the technological model, it is not ruled out that oil will become just a stock commodity for the energy and chemical industry.”

This last point — how oil is used relative to the market — is the most salient; in other words, it’s the financialization of oil. But the analysis must go a step further and explore how the financialization is, in effect, a weaponization process as oil prices become increasingly the playthings of powerful financial institutions, particularly the major banks on Wall Street and in the city of London. And this is no mere conspiracy theory.

How Wall Street targeted Russia using oil

In July 2013, Sen. Sherrod Brown, chair of the Senate Banking Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Protection, opened a hearing to probe just how connected major Wall Street banks were to the holding of physical oil assets, and the attendant ability of these companies to manipulate oil prices. The findings of the hearing, considered damning by multiple analysts knowledgeable on the subject, prompted an investigation by the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, published as “Wall Street Bank Involvement with Physical Commodities.”

The report highlighted just one of the big banks, Morgan Stanley, noting:

“One of Morgan Stanley’s primary physical oil activities was to store vast quantities of oil in facilities located within the United States and abroad. According to Morgan Stanley, in the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut area alone, by 2011, it had leases on oil storage facilities with a total capacity of 8.2 million barrels, increasing to 9.1 million barrels in 2012, and then decreasing to 7.7 million barrels in 2013. Morgan Stanley also had storage facilities in Europe and Asia.  According to the Federal Reserve, by 2012, Morgan Stanley held ‘operating leases on over 100 oil storage tank fields with 58 million barrels of storage capacity globally.’”

Pam and Russ Martens of the well-respected financial analysis site WallStreetOnParade.com succinctly noted in their analysis of this issue:

“With financial derivatives and 58 million barrels of physical storage capacity, it might not be so hard to manipulate the oil market.”

Indeed, the sheer scope of Morgan Stanley’s market influence demonstrates the obvious fact that the major Wall Street banks, and their cousins in the city of London, are able to significantly affect global prices using multiple levers like supply and derivatives, among others.

The Senate report’s brazen honesty is likely the main reason the corporate media failed to cover it all.  As noted in the report:

“Due to their physical commodity activities, Goldman, JPMorgan, and Morgan Stanley incurred increased financial, operational, and catastrophic event risks, faced accusations of unfair trading advantages, conflicts of interest, and market manipulation, and intensified problems with being too big to manage or regulate, introducing new systemic risks into the U.S. financial system.”

But perhaps most jaw-dropping is this January 2014 statement by Norman Bay, director of the Office of Enforcement at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, who testified before the Committee on Banking and Financial Institutions and Consumer Protection Subcommittee. He plainly outlined how the big banks manipulate global oil markets:

“A fundamental point necessary to understanding many of our manipulation cases is that financial and physical energy markets are interrelated … a manipulator can use physical trades (or other energy transactions that affect physical prices) to move prices in a way that benefits his overall financial position. One useful way of looking at manipulation is that the physical transaction is a ‘tool’ that is used to ‘target’ a physical price.”

When one considers how much influence these large banks have on global prices, it’s almost self-evident that they would be able to use oil prices to execute a political and geopolitical agenda. With that in mind, it seems highly suspicious (to say the least) that the collapse of the oil price coincided directly with Russia’s move to annex Crimea and assert its dominance over its sphere of influence, thereby effectively stopping the eastward expansion of NATO in Ukraine.

It’s amusing then when one reads The New York Times reporting this month that “simple economics” explains the drop in oil prices. In fact, it’s clear that it’s just the opposite: The collapse of oil is the result of financial manipulation by Wall Street in the service of the broader agenda of the Empire.

Indeed, in late 2014 Russian President Vladimir Putin implied strongly that the oil plunge had less to do with economic factors than with political decisions. Putin openly theorized:

“There’s lots of talk about what’s causing (the lowering of the oil price). Could it be the agreement between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia to punish Iran and affect the economies of Russia and Venezuela? It could.”

Of course, Putin was not alone in this assessment, as many international observers spread “conspiracy theories” about collusion between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia to deliberately depress oil prices by not cutting production despite all market indicators pointing to a needed decrease.

With U.S.-Russia relations having reached their nadir at precisely that moment, and with Venezuela and Iran also on the enemies list, it is no surprise that many analysts around the world concluded that Washington and Riyadh were conspiring on oil for political reasons.

Of course, the other major impact of the oil plunge on Russia has to do with the burgeoning energy-trade relationship between Russia and China. After the massive oil and gas deals announced between Russia and China in 2014 — deals worth hundreds of billions of dollars over the next three decades, it seems that Washington calculated that while it could not prevent the deals from moving forward, it could undermine them by fundamentally changing the calculus of the deals by tanking oil prices. In so doing, not only have the contracts been rendered less profitable for Russia, they are now subject to decreasing demand from China, which is experiencing its own economic slowdown.

In short, Russia’s attempt to break free of its dependence on revenue from gas sales to Europe by shifting its focus eastward has left Moscow in a bind. Facing the prospect of significantly less revenue than it anticipated coming from the deals with Beijing, Russia has been forced to adjust its own estimates and outlook for the coming years.

Sanctions: The other economic weapon

The overall impact of Western sanctions against Russia is a hotly debated subject. Russian media tends to downplay the overall impact of the sanctions, while the Western media paints a picture of imminent collapse. Notably, Paul Krugman, the leading liberal doomsayer, prognosticated in The New York Times in 2014 that “Putin’s Bubble Bursts,” warning that Russia was headed for economic meltdown thanks to the courageous sanctions regime imposed by the fearless leader President Barack Obama.

In reality, the sanctions had little immediate, direct impact on the Russian economy, but the indirect bruising might be significant, particularly over the medium- and long-term. Last year, the International Monetary Fund issued a report, noting:

“IMF estimates suggest that sanctions and counter sanctions might have initially reduced real GDP by 1 to 1½ percent. Prolonged sanctions may compound already declining productivity growth. The cumulative output loss could amount to 9% of GDP over the medium term. However, the report’s authors underline that these model-driven results are subject to significant uncertainty.”

But, looking beyond the raw numbers, one must realize that the policy prescriptions outlined by the IMF and leading economists internationally are perhaps the actual target for the West.

The IMF recommended “reforming the pension system” (read: reduce pensions), reducing energy subsidies, reducing tax exemptions, and other measures, while also suggesting that education, health care, and public investment be safeguarded. However, the subtext of the recommendations is that austerity, which by its very definition starves public programs of much needed funding, is the way to go for Russia.

There are likely strategic planners in Washington who recognize that the political subversion model employed in Brazil and South Africa simply won’t work in Russia. If nothing else, the failed “White Revolution” protests of late 2011 led by Russian liberals and various pro-Western political forces, demonstrated unequivocally that the Russian state was prepared to prevent precisely this sort of outcome.

And so it seems that those who play on what former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski famously called “The Grand Chessboard,” have made their moves in an attempt to corner Russia economically. Whether that strategy has been, or will be, effective likely depends on perspective. While it alone will not bring about the Western pipe dream of regime change in Russia, the Empire’s elites are banking on the collective assault on Russia and the BRICS broadly to do what political subversion alone could not.

Former U.S. Senate Candidate: Israel Orchestrated the 9/11 Attacks*

Commenting on the Saudi’s role in supporting the 9/11 attacks, Dankof told the broadcaster that Israel were the chief player in organising the attacks.

When we get to 9/11, there are series of clues and series of explanations that have been provided for us; they really get in the bottom of the fact that it was Israel that was the chief player in calling up 9/11,” he told Press TV on Saturday.

Evidence of Israel’s role, according to Dankof, is spelled out in a book called Israel Did It and in an article published by the Council of Foreign Affairs in 1998 that explains Israel’s motivations for being the “driving force” behind an attack of such proportions.

A New York Times report on Friday, citing U.S. officials and congressional aides, said the Obama administration has been lobbying Congress to block legislation allowing American courts to hold Saudi authorities responsible for any role in the attacks. Such legislation would include the right to freeze Saudi assets in the U.S.

The victims’ families, according to the report, accuse the current and former administrations of covering up Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the attacks in order to “protect U.S.-Saudi relations.”

Dankof, however, said, “When you look at this entire situation, the United States government is interested in trying out the 9/11 event in terms of propaganda purposes.”

He argued that Washington is “more than happy to allow these families to appeared [sic] official events that might support the government propaganda line of who and what was behind 9/11.”

“The American people will continue to have a complete misunderstanding of who the real enemies are or why we are likely to be in a war after the American 2016 elections,” he concluded.

Dankof also accused the U.S. government of covering up its involvement in the Kennedy assassination.

Intel to Lay off 11% of Workforce*

Intel will lay off 11% of its global workforce, up to 12,000 employees, as part of a restructuring initiative, the company said Tuesday.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based chip maker said the restructuring would accelerate its evolution from a PC company to one focused on cloud computing and connected devices.

In an email to employees, CEO Brian Krzanich said that after the restructuring

“I am confident that we’ll emerge as a more productive company with broader reach and sharper execution.”

The layoffs will have an outsized effect on Oregon and especially the Portland area. Intel is Oregon’s largest private employer, with 18,500 working at six campuses west of Portland, according to the company.

Intel’s Oregon sites are a global centre of semiconductor research and manufacturing and one of the main anchors of the state’s economy.

Intel’s CFO Stacy Smith said that half the workforce reduction, 6,000 people, will be accomplished by the end of this year.

Intel currently has about 112,400 employees worldwide.

Because the shift is going to be “very, very difficult for the employee base,” Smith declined to say where the majority of the layoffs would occur.

Intel’s largest number of workers are based in the Portland, Ore. metropolitan area, with nearly 18,600 employees.

Its second largest site is in Chandler, Arizona, where it has more than 11,000 employees.

Intel also has approximately 12,500 employees in California at two large sites, its headquarters in Santa Clara and in Folsom, as well as smaller research and development sites in Irvine and San Diego.

The company also employees about 2,300 in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, 1,700 in Hudson, Mass., 2,300 in Austin and Plano, Texas and 1,000 in Bellevue, Wash.

Intel said it expects the layoffs to deliver $750 million in savings in 2016 year and an annual run rate savings of $1.4 billion by mid-2017. The company will record a one-time charge of approximately $1.2 billion in the second quarter, it said.

Reports had hinted that Intel was contemplating thinning its ranks, something analysts called long overdue.

“It’s been a long time since there’s been a restructuring of the company. As they forge forward, they need to pare down and invest in the right area. As much as I hate that — it’s terrible for people who are laid off that — for the investors its positive,” Betsy Van Hees, an analyst with Wedbush Securities.

Intel plans to focus on its data centre and Internet of Things (IoT) businesses, which it called its primary growth engines, along with memory and field programmable gate arrays.

The company had long made money from PCs, but sales have dropped precipitously in recent years, falling 10% in the first quarter.

Growth in its new business areas made up 40% of the company’s revenue in 2015, which helped offset the decline in PC sales, Intel said.

Intel (INTC) shares fell 3.09% in after-hours trading on the news.

News of the layoffs came as Intel reported higher profits than predicted by analysts.

Intel reported a profit of $2.05 billion, or 42 cents a share, up from $1.99 billion, or 41 cents a share, a year ago. Excluding certain items, it reported earnings per share of 54 cents, higher than the 48 cents per share forecast by S&P Global Market Intelligence and up 20% from the 45 cents a share recorded in the year-ago quarter.

Revenue rose to $13.7 billion from $12.78 billion. Analysts expected revenue of $13.83 billion. For the second quarter, Intel forecast revenue of $13.5 billion, which fell short of analyst estimates of $14.16 billion.

“Our first-quarter results tell the story of Intel’s ongoing strategic transformation, which is progressing well and will accelerate in 2016,” said Krzanich.

“We are evolving from a PC company to one that powers the cloud and billions of smart, connected computing devices.”

The company also announced that current CFO Smith will be taking on a broader new role within Intel, moving to lead sales, manufacturing and operations. The company will conduct a search for a new CFO, Krzanich said

Dutch Party Votes for Sanctions on Israel*

Dutch Party Votes for Sanctions on Israel*

By Adri Nieuwhof

A Dutch political party is calling for sanctions on Israel for its ongoing violations of Palestinian rights.

At its national congress on 16 April, the liberal party D66 – short for Democrats 66 – called on its lawmakers to promote European Union demands that Israel halt its construction of settlements on occupied lands as well as other violations of human rights.

The D66 resolution – adopted by a 75% majority – states that if Israel does not heed the demands, the EU-Israel Association Agreement “could be (partially) suspended.”

This marks the first time a Dutch political party has expressed its support for sanctions against Israel over the country’s ongoing violation of Article 2 of the EU-Israel agreement, which conditions trade privileges on respect for basic human rights.

D66 currently holds 12 of the 150 seats in the lower house of the Dutch parliament and 10 out of 75 in the senate. It also holds four of the 26 Dutch seats in the European Parliament.

Ron Eisenmann, chair of the Dutch Israel lobby group CIDI, was quick to accuse D66 of anti-Jewish bigotry – echoing charges Israel and its surrogates have frequently lobbed at the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

“The world is on fire but D66 adopts a motion against Israel. Tends to double standard BDS and anti-semitism!” Eisenmann tweeted.

But the D66 resolution is simply a call to hold Israel accountable for its ongoing systematic violations of international law.

Dozens of members of the European Parliament and 46 international aid organizations have already called for suspension of the E.U.-Israel agreement as a tool to pressure Israel to end its abuses.

Youth activism

The resolution, presented by the D66 youth section, was the outcome of a consistent human rights approach, Bart Vosmer, political secretary of the Young Democrats, told The Electronic Intifada.

He said that the Young Democrats had discussed violations of human rights around the world and in Palestine in particular and had reached the conclusion that sanctions could be an option to change the situation.

As a liberal party, D66 supports trade, but it also wants to promote international law, Vosmer explained.

He noted that the trade preferences afforded by the E.U.-Israel agreement are conditioned on respect for human rights.

The call for the suspension of the agreement led to a fierce debate, including charges that the party would be “singling out” Israel.

But Vosmer said that the Young Democrats countered this by saying that Israel’s violations of human rights had been sustained over many years and had been amply documented.

The Young Democrats, with 5,500 members, is one of the largest political youth movements in the Netherlands. It will seek cooperation with European sister organizations to achieve its goal.

Meanwhile, the liberals have set an example for the Green Left Party and Labour, the two main leftist Dutch parties which have yet to take such a strong position.

The “Gate of God” Erected in Trafalgar Square London is a deception

Right on Q the Gateway of God is erected on 19th April, 2016 in Trafalgar Square, London.

The 1800 year old description is a deception, a deception made necessary by the falsification of history made by the New Testament.

Palmyra’s golden age was at least two hundred years earlier, one of the principal cities of Osrhoene, the small and immensely wealthy country or buffer state that sat between the Roman and Persian empires.  The King of Osrhoene was Izas, who led the Nazarene revolt against Rome in Judaea from AD67-70.  After Izas was defeated at Jerusalem, Josephus Flavius (who was Saul and St Paul in the NS), employed by the new Emperor Vespasian, fabricated the Christian religion using the story of a Jesus, which was based on Izas, but transported forty years ahead in time.

Jesus was captured and imprisoned in Chester in Britannia, which was built specially to house the captured members of the Nazarene Sect, being far enough away to prevent their causing further trouble in Judaea.  Mary Magdalane, who King Izas’s immensely wealthy sister and wife, in the style of Egyptian Royalty, escaped to the South of France, where she founded the Orange Order.

If people realised what Palmyra signified in AD70, the Catholic Church would be in trouble.  The Knights Templar captured Palmyra in the 11th Century and discovered the true history of Izas and Palmyra.  This was one of the secrets they had to keep close, to avoid confrontation with the Catholic Church.  To do this, they fabricated the legend of King Arthur, who was transported from the 1st century AD into the 6th.  He was relocated to Britain and fought a war against Rome, which he lost.  Arthur was Jesus or Izas.  Read Ralph Ellis’ King Jesus trilogy.

A Monster Trojan is Cleaning Your Bank Accounts*

Two powerful Trojan viruses, identified as Gozi ISFB and Nymaim, have been blended together to produce a monster known as GozNym. The program has stolen more than 3 million dollars since it was initially spotted fourteen days ago.

Researchers at IBM’s security division were able to identify the hybrid Trojan, and stated that the Trojan program is presently installed or is working its way through the banking system. The virus can be found in more than 50% of the machines present in commercial financial institutions, credit unions, and microfinance banks. As for GozNym, it is—without a doubt—an extremely stealthy Trojan that incorporates the very best of both the Trojans previously mentioned.

Image Source: Security Intelligence – A figure showing the Trojan’s target market, mainly in the United States.

 

Furthermore, GozNym is primarily being distributed through electronic mails with so-called infected macros that are using an infected attachment. Once infected, hackers then control the target’s web browser, slip credentials and move finances from the victim’s accounts to wherever they want. This mixing of the viruses or Trojans, is not uncommon and is an activity that is common in the security community. For example, last year’s banking Trojan, called Shifu, was an assortment of several malware programs such as Dridex, Shiz, Zeus as well as Gozi. Additionally, like Shifu, GozNym can be described as a Shifu in its own right (Shifu means ‘master’ in Mandarin Chinese).

Image Source: Security Intelligence – A bloggers data showing his research that shows the data via the Black hole kit.

 

The virus is a powerful patchwork of varieties, in which the two programs depend on each other to execute the malware’s central functions. Collectively, these two codes function a lot more efficiently when working together. GozNym uses Nymaim’s dual level malware dropper to contaminate a unit. Once it infiltrates a PC, the Nymaim aspect of the hybrid virus starts to score Gozi ISFB components, which is able to insert a harmful link collection (DLL), as reported by the experts.

Image Source: Security Intelligence – A chart showing the original Gozi ISFB DLL that used to be fetched by Nymaim.

 

However, previous variations of Nymaim used to retrieve and insert Gozi ISFB’s monetary component as a detailed DLL directly into the infected target’s browser, and made web injections feasible for the internet banking websites. That being said, the primary combined version of this hybrid was discovered during the start of this month.

Image Source: Security Intelligence – A chart showing how the new Goznym works.

As for the roots of Gozi ISFB and Nymaim, the first mentioned Trojan has been associated with internet banking attacks as early as 2007, and was famous for its ability to take secured information using sophisticated Winsock2 features.

However, the Nymaim Trojan was initially noticed three years ago and was labelled as ransomware. Then again, as reported by IBM, both Trojan viruses witnessed their source code being leaked, thus enabling a programmer to blend both of them and develop what we now know as GozNym.
