“Firefighters were battling a brush fire Monday night that broke out in the rugged Holy Jim area of Orange County earlier in the day and exploded to cover some 4,000 acres, extending into Riverside County, officials said.

The Holy fire was reported at 1:17 p.m. near Holy Jim Canyon and Trabuco Creek roads, said Jake Rodriguez, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service.

The fire later moved toward the Main Divide forest road, within sight of Riverside County communities including south Corona, El Cerrito and Glen Ivy Hot Springs, according to the Forest Service. The Cleveland National Forest fire had climbed to the top of the ridge line northeast of Saddleback Mountain, with some small fires crossing the Main Divide Road.

The cause of the fire that scorched brush amid daytime 100-degree temperatures was under investigation.

There was no containment of the fire as of Monday evening.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered for Holy Jim Canyon, Trabuco Canyon Recreation Residence Tract and the Blue Jay and Falcon campgrounds.”

‘Social Media Has Peaked’ | July 27 2018

‘Social Media has peaked’: Facebook in free fall as weak outlook stuns market

|| news.com.au

“FACEBOOK shares went into a free fall Thursday (AEST) as a stunningly weak financial outlook raised fresh concerns for the social networking giant as it tries to recover from the impact of data protection scandals and investigations.

After-hours trade saw Facebook shares plunge by some 21 per cent, wiping out an estimated $US130 billion in market value if the slump is confirmed at Thursday’s market opening.

The second-quarter report sparked initial selling after it showed revenue and user growth came up short of expectations.

Profit was up 31 per cent in the second quarter at $US5.1 billion; revenues rose 42 per cent to $US13.2 billion, slightly below most forecasts.

Selling pressure accelerated when chief financial officer David Wehner warned in a call with analysts of a weaker outlook in the coming quarter.

Wehner said revenue growth “decelerated” in the second quarter and will decline “by high single digit percentages” and added that “we are also giving people who use our services more choices around data privacy which may have an impact on our revenue growth.”

On the call, Jefferies & Co. analyst Brent Thill said that “many investors are having a hard time reconciling that deceleration … It just seems like the magnitude is beyond anything we’ve seen.”

Ross Gerber, an analyst at Gerber Kawasaki, said the latest figures suggest that the tide may be turning for Facebook and other social networks.

“Social Media has peaked,” Gerber said on Twitter. “We told you last qtr and now we’re seeing it.”

PENTAGON KILLS “LIFELOG” PROJECT SAME DAY FACEBOOK FOUNDED

|| Gopreload.com

“The Pentagon canceled its so-called LifeLog project, an ambitious effort to build a database tracking a person’s entire existence.

Run by Darpa, the Defense Department’s research arm, LifeLog aimed to gather in a single place just about everything an individual says, sees or does: the phone calls made, the TV shows watched, the magazines read, the plane tickets bought, the e-mail sent and received. Out of this seemingly endless ocean of information, computer scientists would plot distinctive routes in the data, mapping relationships, memories, events and experiences.

LifeLog’s backers said the all-encompassing diary could have turned into a near-perfect digital memory, giving its users computerized assistants with an almost flawless recall of what they had done in the past. But civil libertarians immediately pounced on the project when it debuted last spring, arguing that LifeLog could become the ultimate tool for profiling potential enemies of the state.

Researchers close to the project say they’re not sure why it was dropped late last month. Darpa hasn’t provided an explanation for LifeLog’s quiet cancellation. “A change in priorities” is the only rationale agency spokeswoman Jan Walker gave to Wired News.”

Facebook Stock Decline Is Largest One-Day Drop in U.S. History

|| Breitbart

 

“Facebook’s drop in stock price of nearly 20 percent marks the largest one-day stock market decline in U.S. history, at $119 billion.

Facebook has had a tough few days, seeing a massive decline in its stock price which fell by as much as 23 percent in after-market trading on Wednesday. The mass stock sale saw approximately $119 billion in market value destroyed, marking the largest one-day drop in the history of the American stock market.

The sudden drop in Facebook stock was a result of the announcement of second-quarter earnings which did not meet the companies predicted numbers. Although revenue had increased by approximately 42 percent, the number still fell short of analyst projections.

Similarly, the number of daily active users on the platform — an important metric for judging the success of a website or app — only grew by 22 million, the lowest growth figure since 2011. Facebook’s Chief Financial Officer warned that revenue growth would “decline by high single-digit percentages” until 2019.”

The Case for Stripping ex-intelligence officials of their Security Clearances | July 27 2018

Why Former US Intelligence Officials Should Be Stripped of Their Security Clearances

|| Consortium News

“How is it that former officials who now have no role in government are able to keep their active security clearances? This has abuse written all over it. “

 

| J

COMMENTARY: Former CIA agent John Kiriakou argues that no former intelligence official should be allowed to keep their security clearances when they leave government, especially if they work in the media.

“(CN Op-ed) — Libertarian senator Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on Monday that in a personal meeting with President Donald Trump, he urged the president to revoke the security clearances of a half dozen former Obama-era intelligence officials, including former CIA director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice. I couldn’t agree more with Paul’s position, not specifically regarding these three people, but for any former intelligence official. No former intelligence official should keep a security clearance, especially if he or she transitions to the media or to a corporate board.

The controversy specifically over Brennan’s clearance has been bubbling along for more than a year. He has been one of Trump’s most vocal and harshest critics. Last week he went so far as to accuse Trump of having committed “treason” during his meeting in Helsinki, Finland with Russian president Vladimir Putin. Brennan said in a tweet, “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican patriots: Where are you???” The outburst was in response to Trump’s unwillingness to accept the Intelligence Community position that Putin and the Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

Other intelligence professionals weighed in negatively on Trump’s Helsinki performance, including Republicans like former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and former CIA director Mike Hayden.

Why are these people saying anything at all? And why do they have active Top Secret security clearances if they have no governmental positions? The first question is easier to answer than the second. Before answering, though, I want to say that I don’t think this issue is specific to Donald Trump. Former officials of every administration criticize those who have replaced them. That’s the way Washington works. It’s a way for those former officials to remain relevant. Donald Trump happens to be an easy target. His actions are so wildly unpredictable—and frequently so disingenuous on the surface of things—that he proves wrong the oft-quoted observation by the late Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser: “The genius of you Americans is that you never make clear-cut stupid moves. You only make complicated stupid moves, which make the rest of us wonder at the possibility that we might be missing something.”

Cashing In

I’ve known John Brennan for 30 years. He was my boss in the CIA’s Directorate of Intelligence decades ago. John was hard to get along with. His superiors generally didn’t like him. He was once fired from a job at the CIA. He’s not particularly bright. And then he found a patron in former CIA director George Tenet, who saved his career. Brennan has had his run. He succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. He’s been CIA Director, deputy National Security Advisor, director of the Transnational Terrorism Information Center, and deputy Executive Director of the CIA. That’s pretty heady stuff for a kid from Bergen, New Jersey.

He also has very low self-esteem from those early days at the CIA. Almost everybody else had more degrees, spoke more languages, and went to better schools. Until Tenet, Brennan never had a political rabbi and was stuck at the GS-15 (journeyman) level for years. Now, all these years later, he again doesn’t have anyone to help his career. Barack Obama isn’t president anymore. And Brennan desperately wants to be Secretary of Defense. He says it to anybody willing to listen. That is what’s supposed to be his legacy, at least in his mind.

Besides legacy, Brennan and the others have cashed in on their government service. They’ve all become rich by sitting on corporate boards. Brennan is on the board of directors of a company called SecureAuth + CORE Security. He also serves on the board of The Analysis Corporation, which he helped found before joining the Obama Administration. Finally, and most importantly, Brennan is now the official talking head and “Intelligence Consultant” for NBC News and MSNBC.

To me, this is the point that is the most obviously wrong. How is it that former officials who now have no role in government are able to keep their active security clearances? This has abuse written all over it. First, these officials run the risk of exposing classified information in a television interview, either inadvertently or not. Second, and more cynically, what is to keep them from propagandizing the American people by simply spouting the CIA line or allowing the CIA to use them to put out disinformation? What’s to keep them from propagandizing the American people by selectively leaking information known only to the intelligence agencies and Congress? Or to release information passed to them by the FBI?

No former intelligence officials should have a security clearance. There’s no purpose for it other than propaganda and personal enrichment. And if Brennan or Hayden or Clapper or any other former intelligence official becomes an employee of a media company, he or she should not have a security clearance. Period. Donald Trump ought to act right now.”

John Kiriakou is a former CIA counterterrorism officer and a former senior investigator with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. John became the sixth whistleblower indicted by the Obama administration under the Espionage Act – a law designed to punish spies. He served 23 months in prison as a result of his attempts to oppose the Bush administration’s torture program.

Gotta hand it to Special Counsel Robert Mueller: He knows how to set off a stick of dynamite. I refer, of course, to his office’s recent indictment of thirteen Russians in Russia, which we are now to chase after, yelling “Pearl Harbor!” on the Left and “No collusion!” on the Right, forgetting all about the coalescing revelations of corruption and conspiracy and, yes, Russian influence, to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016, and, failing that, to destroy the Trump presidency.

The key is still in the “dossier” spying scandal.

Nellie Ohr is the “dossier” spying scandal’s woman in the middle.

To one side of Ohr, there is the Fusion GPS team, including fellow contractor Christopher Steele. To the other, there is husband Bruce Ohr, who, until his “dossier”-related demotion, was No. 4 man at the Department of Justice, and a key contact there for Steele.

As central as Nellie Ohr’s placement is, her role in the creation of the “dossier” remains undefined. For example, the House Intelligence Committee memo on related matters vaguely tells us that Nellie Ohr was “employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump”; the memo adds that Bruce Ohr “later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research.” Senator Lindsey Graham more sensationally told Fox News that Nellie Ohr “did the research for Mr. Steele,” but details remain scarce.

Still, relevant facts have emerged. These include Nellie Ohr’s study in the USSR in 1989; her fluency in Russian and Ph.D. in Russian history in 1990; a 2010 CIA affiliation, which practically makes her former MI6 agent Steele’s “opposite number”; and the extremely curious detail, harkening back to earlier eras of spycraft, that on May 23, 2016, around the time she came on board Fusion GPS, Nellie Ohr applied for a ham radio operator’s license.

Notably, the “dossier” men in her life have tried to shield Ohr from public scrutiny, even at professional risk. Her husband, as the Daily Caller News Foundation reports, failed to disclose his wife’s employment with Fusion GPS and seek the appropriate conflict-of-interest waiver, which may have been an important factor in his demotion from associate deputy attorney general late last year.

Under Senate and House questioning, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson consistently failed to disclose Nellie Ohr’s existence as one of his firm’s paid Russian experts, let alone that he hired her for the red-hot DNC/Clinton campaign Trump-Russia project.

Even Christopher Steele may have tried to keep Nellie Ohr “under cover.” Steele, put forth as the “dossier” author ever since its January 2017 publication in BuzzFeed, does not appear to have let on to his many media and political contacts that he had “dossier”-assistance from at least two fellow Fusion GPS Russian experts, Nellie Ohr and Edward Baumgartner. Baumgartner, interestingly, was a Russian history major at Vassar in the 1990s when Nellie Ohr taught Russian history there.”

Trump-Putin Bombshell “For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder” | July 17 2018

Yes, It’s True. Putin Mentioned $400 MILLION Russia/Clinton Bribe/Money Laundering Scheme During Today’s Summit

|| DCWhispers

“A name was spoken today that likely sent chills down the spines of assorted globalist media in attendance at the Trump-Putin summit:  Bill Browder.

Browder is as shadowy a political/financial figure as you will find and is alleged to have funneled/laundered up to $400 MILLION dollars into the Clintons’ coffers. The media is purposely ignoring the Putin name-drop for good reason. Some of them are said to be personally implicated in the cover-up as well.

Browder, head of Hermitage Capital, also has ties to Fusion GPS and the Clinton Global Initiative – both foundational components of what would become the orchestrated Trump/Russia conspiracy the Establishment Media continues to use to try and halt Mr. Trump’s America-First agenda.

Please read the following 2017  Zero Hedge report carefully:

…Just weeks before the Trump Tower meeting, Russia’s general prosecutor had returned to the matter. On May 19, 2016, the office issued a statement that its investigation into purchases of shares in gas giant Gazprom by Browder’s Hermitage Fund and his investors, including Ziff Brothers, had found they evaded more than 1 billion rubles ($16 million) in Russian taxes, transferring the profits to Ziff-controlled companies overseas. Russian prosecutors said they suspected the transactions also may have violated U.S. law and that they planned to send an international-assistance request to the U.S. seeking a probe.

Veselnitskaya repeated those allegations in comments to the Russian press about the Magnitsky case at the time.

On June 4, 2017, Yuri Chaika, Russia’s general prosecutor, said on national television that his agency “has presented serious evidence of violations of the law by Browder and the Ziff brothers” to U.S. officials. There’s no indication of any U.S. response to that claim.

(It should also be noted that the fake Trump dossier originated in part via the anti-Brexit British government. Trump supported Brexit. The British elite did not. Mr. Browder is very well connected to the London-centered political hierarchy. (He was born in America but is a British citizen) Coincidence? You decide.)

On a possible related side note – Mr. Browder’s grandfather was head of Communist Party USA.

Sidenote #2 – Hermitage Capital was once the single largest portfolio investor in Russia until Browder and company fled following allegations by Russian officials of fraud/tax evasion.

Here is some of what Mr. Putin had to say on the subject of Browder’s connection to the Clintons and Clinton-Obama era U.S. intelligence officials:

For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well, that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence offers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.

What if foreign nations like Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, etc., have over time successfully bought and paid for high-ranking U.S. officials? Was it not Bill Clinton who took illegal campaign donations from Chinese interests? Was it not George W. Bush who ignored the Saudi government’s links to 9-11? Or Hillary Clinton who sold a significant portion of America’s uranium holdings to Russian interests? What of Barack Obama’s odd obsession with cozying up to the likes of “death to America” Iran?

And what if Donald Trump, a true outsider well beyond the control of the D.C. power structure, is viewed as a direct threat by the media and political elites, who might weaken or even cripple, their ongoing globalist cash cow? Would they not be motivated to destroy him?”

Box Office Poison: ‘Shock and Awe’ Is Director Rob Reiner’s 6th Mega-Flop in a Row

|| Breitbart

Shock and Awe director Rob Reiner has now directed six mega-flops in a row and has not had anything approaching a hit since 2007.

This weekend, Reiner’s Shock and Awe crashed and burned at the box office. For some reason, even though it is 2018, Reiner is still wasting millions of dollars to attack former President George W. Bush. This, even after every single movie attacking Bush bombed.

What’s more, as if to prove just how insulated he is from real America, Shock and Awetries to make heroes of journalists, a group currently enjoying approval ratings little better than child molesters.

.. ..

To be clear, I am not qualifying a box office “disappointment” or an “under-performer” as a mega-flop.  Reiner has not only not had a hit in 11 years, since 2007’s The Bucket List, everything he has directed has been a box office catastrophe.

In 2010, Reiner directed the $14 million Flipped — it grossed less than $2 million. That is not a typo — less than TWO million dollars. Things got a lot worse two years later.

Despite the presence of Morgan Freeman and a budget of just $5 million, The Magic of Bell Isle, which Reiner both wrote and directed, lost every penny due to a — and again this is not a typo — gross of just $102,388.

In 2014, with no less than Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton on the poster, And So It Goes bottomed out in wide release (1762 theaters) with just $15 million domestic, which did not even cover its $18 million production budget. Add at least as much for publicity, and you are talking about a $20 million loss.

Reiner’s Being Charlie performed so poorly in May of 2016, it never expanded beyond 14 screens and managed to only gross $30,400.”

California ‘Sanctuary’ Status in Initiative Cross Hairs for 2020 Ballot | July 10 2018

California Ballot Initiative to Reverse ‘Sanctuary State,’ Undocumented Immigrant Driver’s License Laws Cleared to Collect Signatures

|| KTLA

“Proponents of a measure that would repeal California’s “Sanctuary State” law and reverse another law that allows undocumented immigrants in California to get a driver’s license have been cleared to gather signatures for a 2020 ballot initiative.

The proposal, called the “Children, Family and Community Protection Act,” would require cooperation between state and local enforcement in efforts to verify the immigration status of anyone who is arrested and suspected of being in the U.S. illegally, according to a summary on the California secretary of state’s website.

It would also prohibit local governments and police agencies from limiting cooperation with ICE and other federal authorities — something currently prevented in certain cases by California’s recently enacted Senate Bill 54, better known as the “Sanctuary State” law.

“To become a sanctuary state, we all felt was unwarranted when we have so many other issues to worry about — homelessness and all those other issues — and we’re focused on the lives of people who don’t even live in this country or want to enter illegally,” Ravi Mehta, who supports the ballot measure, told KTLA sister station KTXL in Sacramento.

The initiative also seeks to reverse another law, Assembly Bill 60, which allows anyone who cannot prove they are in the U.S. legally to get a California driver’s license using identification from their home country, according to KTXL.

They still, however, must show proof of California residency and pass the state’s written and driving tests.

Gov. Brown signed the law in 2013, but it didn’t go into effect until 2015.

As of April 2018, the DMV has issued driver’s licenses to more than a million undocumented immigrants, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Supporters of AB 60 pushed for the law as a safety measure, arguing that many immigrants were already getting behind the wheel, but the lack of training and testing required of other drivers were making the roads less safe.

Opponents of the proposed ballot measure, however, say that the law makes it more difficult to determine whether someone is in the country illegally.

“The line that AB 60 will make the roads safer was totally bull,” Don Rosenberg, who submitted the amended version of the initiative, said in an interview with the Sacramento Bee. “It is not safer. It was a complete lie.”

Rosenberg, a Westlake Village resident, has been a vocal opponent of illegal immigration since one of his sons was struck and killed by an undocumented immigrant in 2010, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He believes the law will improve overall public safety and reduce the number of traffic-related fatalities, the Bee reported.

The initiative would also prohibit automatic voter registration in the state, something Rosenberg thinks can help prevent voter fraud.

One opponent of the ballot initiative is Los Angeles City Councilman Gil Cedillo, who expressed support in the fight to preserve AB 60.

“The loss of Don Rosenberg’s son is unfortunate, but we cannot blame an entire class of motorists for it,” Cedillo said in an emailed statement. “California is a leader for immigrant protections, as is evidence by the numerous laws we’ve enacted and the lawsuits filed against ICE. We must stop politicizing immigration issues for political gain, like we have done with DACA, DAPA and the separation of families.”

The councilman added, “It is Mr. Rosenberg’s right to collect signatures for this initiative, but I advise him not to poke the hornet’s nest.”

Supporters have until Dec. 19 to gather nearly 366,000 signatures in order to qualify the measure for the November 2020 ballot.”

Trump Travel Ban Upheld by U.S. Supreme Court | June 26

SUPREMES DEAL VICTORY FOR TRUMP, UPHOLD TRAVEL BAN

|| Daily Caller

“A five-justice majority of the U.S. Supreme Court upheld in full the latest iteration of President Donald Trump’s travel sanctions Tuesday.

The ruling was an unqualified victory for the Trump administration, after earlier variants of the entry ban were greeted with raucous airport protests and break-neck litigation that left the White House reeling.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the Court’s opinion, joined by Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch.

“The president has lawfully exercised the broad discretion granted to him under [federal law],” Roberts wrote.

Speaking moments after the Court issued its decision, Trump said the ruling vindicates his immigration and national security priorities.

“The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the president to defend the national security of the United States,” he said. “In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country. This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country.”

“As long as I am president, I will defend the sovereignty, safety, and security of the American people, and fight for an immigration system that serves the national interests of the United States and its citizens,” he added.

The ban in its currents form was issued in September 2017. The administration assessed travel penalties against eight countries, who failed to satisfy basic vetting and information-sharing expectations.

A coalition of Democratic states and civil rights groups challenged the proclamation, making two basic arguments. They first alleged the sanctions exceeded Trump’s authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The INA, the plaintiffs said, only allows the president to ban the entry of a specific class of dangerous aliens for a limited time. It also provides that the president may not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, or nationality when issuing visas.

Second, the challengers claimed that the order was issued to disparage Muslims, in violation of the First Amendment’s ban on religious favoritism in government policy.

The high court rejected both these positions. Roberts explained that the INA “exudes deference to the president in every clause,” meaning that courts should not second-guess Trump’s national security findings.

The law sets just one requirement for the president: he must formally determine that the entry of a certain class of aliens is detrimental to U.S. interests. The majority found the administration easily satisfied this demand, as Trump’s order is the most comprehensive proclamation ever issued under the INA.

“The 12-page proclamation — which thoroughly describes the process, agency evaluations, and recommendations underlying the president’s chosen restrictions — is more detailed than any prior order a president has issued under [the INA],” the chief wrote.

With respect to the constitutional argument, the Court similarly concluded that its review should be limited given the national security sensitivities the case involves.

The ruling also identifies what it sees as significant shortcomings of the plaintiffs’ First Amendment argument. Just eight percent of the world’s Muslim population is encompassed by Trump’s sanctions, Roberts noted, and the proclamation itself creates a waiver program open to all affected aliens. Moreover, certain nationals — like exchange students — from sanctioned countries are specifically exempted from the entry ban.

All told, the majority saw these features as incompatible with a supposed Muslim ban.”
