What’s the worst malware so far into 2018? The worst botnets and banking trojans, according to Webroot, were Emotet, Trickbot, and Zeus Panda. Crysis/Dharma, GandCrab, and SamSam were the worst among ransomware. The top three in cryptomining/cryptojacking were GhostMiner, Wanna Mine, and Coinhive.

And included in the list of top 10 threat actors so far this year, we find Lazarus Group, Sofacy and MuddyWater coming in the top three spots, according to AlienVault. Lazarus Group took the top spot from Sofacy this year. The reported locations for the top 10 threat actors are North Korea, with two groups; Russia, with three groups; Iran, with two groups; China, with two groups; and India, with one. Microsoft Office was the most exploited application, but Adobe Flash, WebLogic, Microsoft Windows, Drupal and GPON routers were also listed in the top 10.

A slightly edited version is below. *Rob Bluey: What are the most serious threats that America faces today?* *Sebastian Gorka:* In “Why We Fight (https://amzn.to/2JFqXW9),” I go through the whole catalog of the threats that face us today—whether it’s North Korea, Russia, Iran, or China, or global jihadism, which was a subject of my first book “Defeating Jihad (https://amzn.to/2DoRHtW).” After my time in the White House, it’s very clear to me that we’re going to deal with all of these threats.

A daring sting operation. The great untold national security story of our time: “An impressive and important work…The book has the glamour of a spy novel and the gravity of a meticulously researched exposé” (Christian Science Monitor). On today’s high-tech battlefields, the most lethal weapons are not the big ones, but rather the ones that are small enough to be smuggled inside a pack of chewing gum. Developed and manufactured in the United States at extraordinary cost, these tiny weapons of war—which can guide missiles, see through walls, and trigger anything from a wireless IED to a nuclear weapon—are what currently give the US its military advantage. Unfortunately, they are increasingly being discovered in the hands of our enemies. In Operation Shakespeare, Pulitzer Prize finalist John Shiffman tells the true story of an elaborate sting operation launched by an elite Homeland Security team that was created to stop Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea from stealing US military technology. The sting, codenamed Operation Shakespeare, targets an Iranian arms broker who works on behalf of Tehran. Over the course of three years, the American agents go undercover to outwit not only the Iranian, but US defense contractors and bankers willing to put profit over national security. The chase moves around the world, and as the United States tries to bring the Iranian to justice, his own government plots to assassinate him, fearful of what he might reveal. Tenacious, richly detailed, and boasting unprecedented access to both the Iranian broker and the US agents who caught him, “Operation Shakespeare reads like a spy thriller—but Shiffman’s meticulous reporting leaves no doubt that he is telling nothing less than scary truth” (Daily News, New York)

《インチキ遺骨ではなくて、拉致被害者を返せ!安倍首相 金委員長との首脳会談に強い意欲》

73回目の「広島・原爆の日」の平和記念式典に出席した後、安倍晋三首相は記者会見し、拉致問題の解決に向け、北朝鮮の金正恩(キム・ジョンウン)委員長と直接、会談することに改めて強い意欲を示しました。

「最後は私自身が(北朝鮮の)金正恩委員長と向き合い、対話を行い、核、ミサイル、そして何よりも重要な拉致問題を解決をし、新しい日・朝関係を築いていかなければならない」
(安倍晋三首相)

安倍首相は、また、米・朝首脳会談後も北朝鮮が核・ミサイル開発を継続しているとの指摘が出ていることについて

「様々な情報に接している」

と述べるにとどめ、明確な批判はしませんでした。
一方で、

「朝鮮半島の完全な非核化に向け、米・朝首脳間の合意が完全かつ迅速に履行されることを期待している」

と述べ、北朝鮮側に合意の履行を求めました。

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

◆昭和52(1977)年11月15日
少女拉致容疑事案
被害者:横田めぐみさん(Megumi Yokota)
(拉致被害時13歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
新潟市において下校途中に失踪。
平成16年11月に開催された第3回実務者協議において、北朝鮮側はめぐみさんが1994(平成6)年4月に死亡したとし「遺骨」を提出したが、めぐみさんの「遺骨」とされた骨の一部からは同人のものとは異なるDNAが検出されたとの鑑定結果を得た。
平成18年4月には日本政府の実施したDNA検査により、横田めぐみさんの夫が昭和53年に韓国より拉致された当時高校生の韓国人拉致被害者・金英男(キム・ヨンナム)氏である可能性が高いことが判明した。

※「白い翼でも黒い翼でも、赤い翼でも青い翼でも、何でも結構なんで、帰って来られる翼をめぐみに与えてほしい」

[November 15, 1977: Young girl abducted]

Abductee: Megumi Yokota (13, female, Niigata Prefecture)
Disappeared on her way home from school in Niigata City.
During the third round of Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations in November 2004, North Korea claimed that Megumi Yokota died in April 1994 and handed over what it claimed were her remains. DNA analysis, however, indicates that some of the bones from these remains belong in fact to a different person or persons.
Additional DNA analysis conducted in April 2006 by the GoJ indicated a high probability that Kim Young-Nam, a Korean citizen abducted from the Republic of Korea in 1978 when he was a high-school student, was married to Ms. Yokota.

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

被害者:横田めぐみさん(Megumi Yokota)
(拉致被害時13歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
新潟市において下校途中に失踪。
平成16年11月に開催された第3回実務者協議において、北朝鮮側はめぐみさんが1994(平成6)年4月に死亡したとし「遺骨」を提出したが、めぐみさんの「遺骨」とされた骨の一部からは同人のものとは異なるDNAが検出されたとの鑑定結果を得た。
平成18年4月には日本政府の実施したDNA検査により、横田めぐみさんの夫が昭和53年に韓国より拉致された当時高校生の韓国人拉致被害者・金英男(キム・ヨンナム)氏である可能性が高いことが判明した。

[November 15, 1977: Young girl abducted]

Abductee: Megumi Yokota (13, female, Niigata Prefecture)
Disappeared on her way home from school in Niigata City.
During the third round of Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations in November 2004, North Korea claimed that Megumi Yokota died in April 1994 and handed over what it claimed were her remains. DNA analysis, however, indicates that some of the bones from these remains belong in fact to a different person or persons.
Additional DNA analysis conducted in April 2006 by the GoJ indicated a high probability that Kim Young-Nam, a Korean citizen abducted from the Republic of Korea in 1978 when he was a high-school student, was married to Ms. Yokota.

正治さんと良司さん(弟)は学年は1年違いだが、正治さんが高校に入ったのは1年遅れ。
同級生の女性が弟の勤務先に訪れ、その女性の話によれば「正治さんが学校に来ない。下宿に行っても生活しているそのままの状態だった」とのこと。
当時、良司さんも住み込みで自由に動けなかったので直ぐには下宿に行っていない。
あとで警察には家出人届は出したが見つからなかった。
正治さんは中学校卒業後すぐ3年ほどパン屋に勤めていたが、退職後は母の妹の家(安浦町)に住所を移し、さらに逗子市に転居していたことがわかった。
転居先は住民票を辿ると逗子市で、住所は元横須賀海軍工廠の宿舎。当時は朝鮮半島出身者が500世帯くらい住んでいたが、原因不明の火事(昭和36年頃)で焼失した。

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

少女拉致容疑事案
被害者:横田めぐみさん(Megumi Yokota)
(拉致被害時13歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
新潟市において下校途中に失踪。
平成16年11月に開催された第3回実務者協議において、北朝鮮側はめぐみさんが1994(平成6)年4月に死亡したとし「遺骨」を提出したが、めぐみさんの「遺骨」とされた骨の一部からは同人のものとは異なるDNAが検出されたとの鑑定結果を得た。
平成18年4月には日本政府の実施したDNA検査により、横田めぐみさんの夫が昭和53年に韓国より拉致された当時高校生の韓国人拉致被害者・金英男(キム・ヨンナム)氏である可能性が高いことが判明した。

[November 15, 1977: Young girl abducted]

Abductee: Megumi Yokota (13, female, Niigata Prefecture)
Disappeared on her way home from school in Niigata City.
During the third round of Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations in November 2004, North Korea claimed that Megumi Yokota died in April 1994 and handed over what it claimed were her remains. DNA analysis, however, indicates that some of the bones from these remains belong in fact to a different person or persons.
Additional DNA analysis conducted in April 2006 by the GoJ indicated a high probability that Kim Young-Nam, a Korean citizen abducted from the Republic of Korea in 1978 when he was a high-school student, was married to Ms. Yokota.

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.

In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

◆昭和52(1977)年11月15日
少女拉致容疑事案
被害者:横田めぐみさん(Megumi Yokota)
(拉致被害時13歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
新潟市において下校途中に失踪。
平成16年11月に開催された第3回実務者協議において、北朝鮮側はめぐみさんが1994(平成6)年4月に死亡したとし「遺骨」を提出したが、めぐみさんの「遺骨」とされた骨の一部からは同人のものとは異なるDNAが検出されたとの鑑定結果を得た。
平成18年4月には日本政府の実施したDNA検査により、横田めぐみさんの夫が昭和53年に韓国より拉致された当時高校生の韓国人拉致被害者・金英男(キム・ヨンナム)氏である可能性が高いことが判明した。

[November 15, 1977: Young girl abducted]

Abductee: Megumi Yokota (13, female, Niigata Prefecture)
Disappeared on her way home from school in Niigata City.
During the third round of Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations in November 2004, North Korea claimed that Megumi Yokota died in April 1994 and handed over what it claimed were her remains. DNA analysis, however, indicates that some of the bones from these remains belong in fact to a different person or persons.
Additional DNA analysis conducted in April 2006 by the GoJ indicated a high probability that Kim Young-Nam, a Korean citizen abducted from the Republic of Korea in 1978 when he was a high-school student, was married to Ms. Yokota.

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

【荒木和博・特定失踪者問題調査会代表による加藤八重子さん失踪事件の解説】
加藤八重子さんは昭和53(1978)年9月22日に群馬県群馬町の自宅から失踪しました。
当日朝、お嬢さんが八重子さんの部屋を見たら姿がなく、寝ていた掛け布団が真ん中だけ膨らみ、誰かに引っ張られて出されたという感じで残されていました。当時38歳。
ご主人はその晩夜勤で不在でした。
前夜は2人のお子さんとともにテレビを見ていて、お子さんたちは午後10時過ぎに就寝しています。
部屋は変わった様子がなく、本人のパジャマを除いて現金、履物、衣類、鞄など全て残っていました。
先日お嬢さんとお会いし、あらためて色々お聞きしたのですが、お話ししていてふと気付いたことがありました。
加藤さんのケースは大多数の特定失踪者と異なり、失踪直後から警察が事件性を察知して動いたケースだということです。
子供を別にすれば、大多数の特定失踪者の場合は家族が届出をしても「事件性なし」と判断され、警察はほとんど動くことはありません。警察には年間10万人近い失踪者の届けがあるので、ある程度仕方ないことではあります。
その意味で加藤さんの失踪事件は特異なケースなのですが、警察の視点は北朝鮮による拉致ではなく、一般の刑事事件としてでした。
警察が最初に疑ったのはご主人で、さらに親族も含めてかなり厳しく調べられたそうです。当時小学生だったお嬢さんですら取調室のようなところで事情聴取をされたとのことでした。
しかし、結局何も出てこず、その後は音沙汰なしになっています。
加藤さんの布団の状況からすれば自分から布団を出たとは考えられません。自分から出たなら布団を畳むかめくるかしているでしょうから。
しかも履物もなくなっていないのですから、考えられるのは意識を失った状態で他人に引っ張り出され、そのまま連れ去られたということです。
ところで加藤八重子さんは電電公社(現在のNTT)の職員でした。そしてご主人は国鉄(現在のJR)に勤めていました。どちらも労働組合は旧社会党系です。
また、ご主人は1か月前、職場の野球大会のとき家の鍵を盗まれていました。
失踪時に警察は事件性を考えてかなり綿密に調べているのですから、家族が犯人でないと分かった時点で、他に何がありうるかを考えたはずです。そのとき、北朝鮮とまでは思わなかったとしても、職場のことを考えなかったとは思えません。群馬県は金丸・田辺訪朝団で有名な田辺 誠・元社会党委員長の地元でもあります。様々な意味で北朝鮮との関係も深く、後に原 敕晁さんを拉致して成り代わる北朝鮮工作員・辛光洙(シン・グァンス)が高崎や前橋のパチンコ屋に身を隠していたこともありました。
このところ色々な情報が出てくる中で、日本人協力者、特に社会党ないし社会党系労組にいた北朝鮮シンパの活動が注目されています。職場の野球で家の鍵が盗まれていること、ご主人の夜勤のときに奥さんが失踪していることからして、周囲にいる事情に詳しい人間が動いた可能性も少なくありません。
加藤さんの失踪は35年前の事件ではあっても、未解決の刑事事件として警察に何らかの記録は残っているはずです。また、当時盛んだった自民党・社会党の裏取引の中でこのような問題が握り潰されたことはなかったのかとの懸念もあります。
これまでただ一人の拉致実行犯も起訴できていない警察としては、「一所懸命やっている」というだけではなく、ぜひ結果を出して真相を究明していただきたいと希望する次第です。

《インチキ遺骨ではなくて、拉致被害者を返せ!安倍首相 金委員長との首脳会談に強い意欲》

73回目の「広島・原爆の日」の平和記念式典に出席した後、安倍晋三首相は記者会見し、拉致問題の解決に向け、北朝鮮の金正恩(キム・ジョンウン)委員長と直接、会談することに改めて強い意欲を示しました。

「最後は私自身が(北朝鮮の)金正恩委員長と向き合い、対話を行い、核、ミサイル、そして何よりも重要な拉致問題を解決をし、新しい日・朝関係を築いていかなければならない」
(安倍晋三首相)

安倍首相は、また、米・朝首脳会談後も北朝鮮が核・ミサイル開発を継続しているとの指摘が出ていることについて

「様々な情報に接している」

と述べるにとどめ、明確な批判はしませんでした。
一方で、

「朝鮮半島の完全な非核化に向け、米・朝首脳間の合意が完全かつ迅速に履行されることを期待している」

と述べ、北朝鮮側に合意の履行を求めました。

◆昭和55(1980)年5月頃
欧州における日本人男性拉致容疑事案
被害者:石岡 亨さん(To-o-ru Ishioka)
(拉致被害時22歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
被害者:松木 薫さん(Kaoru Matsuki)
(拉致被害時26歳)
※This person was Abduction by North Korea
2人とも欧州滞在中の昭和55年に失踪。
昭和63年に石岡さんから日本の家族に出した手紙(ポーランドの消印)が届き、石岡さん、松木さん、そして有本恵子さんが北朝鮮に在住すると伝えてきた。
北朝鮮側は、石岡 亨さんは1988(昭和63)年11月にガス事故で有本恵子さんと共に死亡したとしているが、これを裏付ける資料等の提供はなされていない。
また、同様に松木 薫さんについても、1996(平成8)年8月に交通事故で死亡したとして、平成14年9月及び平成16年11月に開催された第3回日・朝実務者協議と2回にわたり、北朝鮮側から松木さんの「遺骨」の可能性があるとされるものが提出されたが、そのうちの一部からは、同人のものとは異なるDNAが検出されたとの鑑定結果を得た。
捜査当局は拉致実行犯である「よど号」犯人の妻・森 順子及び若林(旧姓:黒田)佐喜子について、平成19年6月に逮捕状の発付を得て国際手配するとともに、政府として北朝鮮側に身柄の引渡しを要求している。

[In or around May 1980: Two Japanese men abducted in Europe]

Abductees: Toru Ishioka (22, male, Europe), Kaoru Matsuki (26, male, Europe)
Both men disappeared while living in Europe in 1980. A letter postmarked in Poland and sent by Mr. Ishioka in 1988 to his family in Japan indicated that he, Mr. Matsuki and Keiko Arimoto (see 12 below) were all living in North Korea.
North Korea asserts that Mr. Ishioka and Ms. Arimoto died in a gas poisoning accident in November 1988, but has provided no documents or evidence to support these claims. North Korea also asserts that Mr. Matsuki died in an automobile accident in August 1996. In September 2002, and at the Third Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in September 2002 and November 2004, North Korea handed over remains possibly belonging to Mr. Matsuki, but analysis in Japan indicates that these remains contain DNA belonging to someone else.
The Japanese authorities issued arrest warrants in June 2007 for Junko Mori and Sakiko Wakabayashi (nee Kuroda), wives of Yodo-go members, who are believed to be responsible for these abductions, and listed them both with Interpol. The GoJ demands that North Korea extradite them to Japan.

He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.
“Sea of Mercy”, the title is a symbol of North Korean regime.

《インチキ遺骨ではなくて、拉致被害者を返せ!安倍首相 金委員長との首脳会談に強い意欲》

73回目の「広島・原爆の日」の平和記念式典に出席した後、安倍晋三首相は記者会見し、拉致問題の解決に向け、北朝鮮の金正恩(キム・ジョンウン)委員長と直接、会談することに改めて強い意欲を示しました。

「最後は私自身が(北朝鮮の)金正恩委員長と向き合い、対話を行い、核、ミサイル、そして何よりも重要な拉致問題を解決をし、新しい日・朝関係を築いていかなければならない」
(安倍晋三首相)

安倍首相は、また、米・朝首脳会談後も北朝鮮が核・ミサイル開発を継続しているとの指摘が出ていることについて

「様々な情報に接している」

と述べるにとどめ、明確な批判はしませんでした。
一方で、

「朝鮮半島の完全な非核化に向け、米・朝首脳間の合意が完全かつ迅速に履行されることを期待している」

と述べ、北朝鮮側に合意の履行を求めました。

In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.
The author is Kim Myong-ho, Takeshi’s Korean name.
In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.

《インチキ遺骨ではなくて、拉致被害者を返せ!安倍首相 金委員長との首脳会談に強い意欲》

73回目の「広島・原爆の日」の平和記念式典に出席した後、安倍晋三首相は記者会見し、拉致問題の解決に向け、北朝鮮の金正恩(キム・ジョンウン)委員長と直接、会談することに改めて強い意欲を示しました。

「最後は私自身が(北朝鮮の)金正恩委員長と向き合い、対話を行い、核、ミサイル、そして何よりも重要な拉致問題を解決をし、新しい日・朝関係を築いていかなければならない」
(安倍晋三首相)

安倍首相は、また、米・朝首脳会談後も北朝鮮が核・ミサイル開発を継続しているとの指摘が出ていることについて

「様々な情報に接している」

と述べるにとどめ、明確な批判はしませんでした。
一方で、

「朝鮮半島の完全な非核化に向け、米・朝首脳間の合意が完全かつ迅速に履行されることを期待している」

と述べ、北朝鮮側に合意の履行を求めました。

[In or around June 1978: Former restaurant worker abducted]

Abductee: Minoru Tanaka (28, male, Hyogo Prefecture)
Disappeared after departing Japan for Europe.
The GoJ requested that North Korea provide information on this case at the 12th round of Japan-North Korea Normalization Talks held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2002 and all three Japan-North Korea Working-Level Consultations held in 2004. During the third round of consultations, North Korea asserted that there is no evidence that Mr. Tanaka had ever entered North Korean territory.
Since April 2005, when the GoJ officially identified Minoru Tanaka as an abductee, the GoJ has demanded that North Korea immediately allow him to return to Japan and provide a full accounting of his case. North Korea, however, has not responded.



【SEA OF MERCY】
The book named “Sea of Mercy”
13-year- old junior high school student Takeshi Terakoshi was abducted in May 1963.
He went fishing with his two uncle, Shoji and Soto-o Terakoshi. The fishingboat named Kiyomaru left for the fishing ground nearby Noto island, Ishikawa prefecture.
Kiyomaru encountered North Korean spy vessel. Spies were afraid of detection.
Soto-o and Takeshi were abducted and carried to Chong-jin city. Shoji was considered to be killed at the site.
Families, fellow fishermen and coast guard searched the area, but they could find only Kiyomaru and Takeshi’s school uniform.
They thought 3 persons were in disress and died. Funeral service was held.24 Years were passed.
In 1987, Soto-o’s sister received the letter from Soto-o and surprised.
Soto-o wrote “Takeshi and I am living in Gusong, North Korea”.
Takeshi’s father and mother visited to North Korea in1988 and met with Soto-o and Takeshi.
But they couldn’t say how they carried to North Korea because NK officials watched them.
North Korea made the story of their shipwreck accident and lifesaving.
Since then, Takeshi’s parents visited to him a lot of times but Takeshi and his family members cannot say that Takeshi and his uncles were abducted.
In 1997, Megumi Yokota case was appeared in the media and the national congress. Terakoshi’s case was also observed as an abduction case. But “he” denied that he was abducted and praised North Korea and the Kim family.
In December 2001, Pyongyang publishing company published a book named “Sea of Mercy”.

In that book, Takeshi wrote that they are not the abduction victims but happily living in North Korea after they ware saved. Moreover “he" denied other abduction case such as Megumi Yokota and Yaeko Taguchi in this book.
Nine months later, Kim Jong-il admitted and appologized for the abduction activities.
But North Korea still denies Terakoshi’s case as abduction and Takeshi and his family cannot say he was abduction victim because Takeshi himself is a hostage.

"Let’s Have a War with Russia!: 
I’d Rather Be Ruled by Autistic Hamsters"
 by Fred Reed

"The United States seems to be contemplating war with Russia, Iran, China, or all three Washington pushes NATO ever closer to Russia, leaves the nuclear-missile treaty and tries to destroy both countries and China economically. Why the push for war?

Simple. Asia is awakening. China (from which I have just returned) grows economically at a scorching pace–and all power rests on economic power. China is a large country, America a medium-sized one. America’s roughly two hundred million whites do virtually all of the scientific work on which national power depends. China has a billion increasingly educated Han Chinese, a five-to-one advantage. China’s stated aim is to united Eurasia among other places in one vast commercial union. Washington’s pugnacity has pushed China, Ira, and Russia together. The chain of nations, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey all totter between looking east and looking west. If Washington doesn’t stop this growth, the American Empire will be marginalized within decades. This doesn’t threaten the American public. It threatens the Empire and Israel.

What would a war with Russia look like, even assuming that it didn’t go nuclear? A great military thinker–me, actually–once said that military stupidity comes in three levels: normally stupid; really really stupid; and invading Russia. From Chuck XII to Adolf I it has proved a poor career move.

The US military has not won a war since 1945, with the exception of the First Gulf War, which the LAPD could have won. It lost decisively in Vietnam. It got run out of Lebanon with 241 dead Marines as its only accomplishment. After seventeen years it shows no signs of defeating barely armed Afghan peasants. Iraq has been a complete botch, achieving none of its goals, control of the oil, permanent bases, and a puppet government. Just now the military is losing in Syria.

Nothing short of genius can account for losing so consistently given the enormous resources available to American forces. In light of this very low level of military competence, maybe wars are not our best choice of hobby.

What sort of war is envisaged? The United States cannot fight a sizable land war. Iran can. Russia can. The American military means air power and little else.  The Army hasn’t fought a serious war since 1973, the fleet since 1945. In long periods of inaction, things deteriorate because they do not seem important. Crucial supplies cease to exist, spare parts aren’t there, the logistics train quietly becomes inoperable.  Money goes instead to pricey weapons of little practical use.

The Army recruits from a soft millennial population. America is no longer a country of tough rural kids. Social engineering has rotted the ranks. The military has suffered years of feminization, SJW appeasement, affirmative action, lowered physical standards, and LGBTQ insertion. Conscription is politically impossible. The Army cannot defeat Afghans even with the advantages of unlimited air power, artillery, gun ships, medevac, helicopters, and drones, It would last a very short time if it had to fight the Afghans or Iranians, on even terms. Muslims are more virile than today’s Americans and have proven tenacious.

A military that never fights a war that it has to win, that never encounters an enemy that can dangerously hit back, inevitably deteriorates. Militaries come to believe their own propaganda. So, apparently, do  the feral mollycoddles in the White House and New York. The American military’s normal procedure is to overestimate American power, underestimate the enemy, and misunderstand the kind of war it is getting into. Should Washington decide on war with Iran, or Russia (unless by a surprise nuclear strike) there will be the  usual talk of the most powerful, best trained, best equipped etc., and how the Ivans and towelheads will melt away in days, a cakewalk. Bet me.

Militaries have a very poor record of predicting outcomes of wars. This might provoke thought. The American Civil War was expected to be over in an afternoon; this was wrong by 650,000 dead and four years. When Napoleon invaded Russia, he did not expect Russians to occupy Paris. Germany thought that WWI would be a war of movement over in weeks; in fact a ghastly war of attrition lasting four years. When Japan attacked Pearl, it was not intentionally inviting GIs to the geisha houses of Tokyo. When Germany invaded Poland, occupation of Germany by Russia and America was low on its list of expectations. When France re-invaded Vietnam, it did not foresee Dien Bien Phu and utter defeat by les jaunes. When America invaded Vietnam, it did not expect a decade-long losing war. When Russia invaded Afghanistan it did not expect to lose to Afghans in sandals. When America invaded Afghanistan, having seen what had happened to Russia, it did not expect the same result.

We do not know what a war with Iran, or Russia, or China  would look like or what the Iranians might do. An overconfident military and an inexperienced government in Washington will predictably predict a short war and speak of precision weapons and surgical strikes. The Navy will guarantee that it can keep the Straits open, and speak of its advanced technology. The expectation will be that there will be nothing unexpected. The White House will believe that  Iran will lie there and be bombed without response. Russia? The nukes will fall on the European countries from which the attack came. Germany might ponder this carefully.

America could of course destroy much of Iran and kill millions of the defenseless. This is what America now calls “war.” It would be amusing to see what would happen if the Air Force had to fight an enemy that could fight back, but this would mean only Russia or, perhaps, just possibly, barely, to some extent, China. It is a coward’s way of war and, to judge by South Vietnam and Afghanistan, not very effective. Killing lots of people and winning a war are not the same thing.

What if Iran did stop petroleum traffic in the Persian Gulf with, say, missiles mounted on pickup trucks. Is this possible? I don’t know. Neither, I suspect, does the Navy–which will insist that it can handle mere pickup trucks with its superb this and that, its best trained, best equipped, the only hyper-power, and so on. But tankers are not going to run even a small risk of going up in flames. How long would the Straits have to be closed with the world screaming for oil before Washington, desperate, its vanity bruised,  full of huge egos, would have to do something stupid to save face?

Further, American leadership is of dangerously low quality. An essentially absentee Congress, the sordidness and criminality of the Clintons, Trump’s utter crassness and shady past, the submission to Israel, the widespread and never punished corruption. In this sorry brew no one seems interested in the well being of the county, only unseemly grasping at benefits for the arms industry, big oil, Wall Street, Tel Aviv, and the Empire. Note that wars generate huge profits for the arms makers and the longer the war can be kept going, neither winning nor losing, the greater the profits. War against Iran would be a magnificent profit center. Since American casualties are extremely low, permanent war has few downsides.

At the top of government we have an unprepossessing bunch that would make Kaiser Wilhelm’s court seem wholesome. Their chief characteristics are pathological aggressiveness and a severe case of Beltway Bubble Syndrome. There is Trump with his weird eruptions. The ever-combative Nikki Haley. Steve Bannon, prophesying and hoping for war with China. Mike Pompeo, threatening Iran, threatening, Venezuela, threatening North Korea. John  Bolton of the codiece mustaches, always counseling a war he won’t fight in, like Trump a drat dodger with something to prove. The life of millions depends on this freak show? I need a drink.”

What’s the worst malware so far into 2018? The worst botnets and banking trojans, according to Webroot, were Emotet, Trickbot, and Zeus Panda. Crysis/Dharma, GandCrab, and SamSam were the worst among ransomware. The top three in cryptomining/cryptojacking were GhostMiner, Wanna Mine, and Coinhive.

And included in the list of top 10 threat actors so far this year, we find Lazarus Group, Sofacy and MuddyWater coming in the top three spots, according to AlienVault. Lazarus Group took the top spot from Sofacy this year. The reported locations for the top 10 threat actors are North Korea, with two groups; Russia, with three groups; Iran, with two groups; China, with two groups; and India, with one. Microsoft Office was the most exploited application, but Adobe Flash, WebLogic, Microsoft Windows, Drupal and GPON routers were also listed in the top 10.

Democracy is widely regarded as the ideal form of government. In practice, however, we are living in an era where, the world over, trust in elected representatives is plummeting. Democracy is sometimes seen as a sham, a political puppet show in which hidden elites pull all the strings. In his latest book, "Can Democracy Work" (Oneworld), James Miller - professor of politics and liberal studies, and faculty director of the MA in creative publishing and critical journalism at the New School for Social Research - maps out the history of democracy. He shows that the concept has always generated tensions and contradictions, and reminds us that the very meaning of democracy has changed dramatically over the two thousand years since it emerged. So can it work?

Why write this book now?

I have been teaching about, and studying, the history of democracy for more than 40 years. In the 1980s, I published two books on the topic, one about Jean Jacques Rousseau and his influence on the French Revolution, the other on the idea of "participatory democracy" as a rallying cry for young American radicals in the 1960s.

In the past few years, several people had been asking me to return to the subject, and write a short history of democracy, notably Astra Taylor, a former student who was working on a documentary film about democracy, now out, entitled What is democracy? In the summer of 2014, I was also dismayed by developments in Europe when I visited Prague; Wroclaw, Poland; and Dresden, Germany -- in all three cities, nationalist parties espousing a very narrow view of democratic citizenship were on the march. At the same time, I met students from Ukraine who had participated in the Maidan uprising in Kiev, demanding a more liberal and democratic society. So clearly democracy, especially in its liberal form, had become an embattled idea. And this made me interested in taking up the challenge of writing a short, summary account of democracy and its manifold problems as these have appeared in various historical contexts.

You note that countries around the world – from Vladimir Putin in Russia to Kim Jong-un in North Korea – pay lip service to democracy. Why does the idea have such currency?

After World War II, most surviving regimes claimed to represent the will of a sovereign people - this was certainly true of the Soviet Union and North Korea, but also of course it was true of the United States and the United Kingdom. Despotic monarchies and totalitarian tyrannies were widely seen as illegitimate. That is why the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights affirms that "everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country."

You start by drawing a distinction between democracy and liberalism. Could you explain?

Modern democracy hinges on the right to take part in government, and is based on some idea of popular sovereignty. Modern liberalism grows out of a revulsion against the violence of the French Revolution, which put democracy on the agenda of modern politics. Modern liberals vary in their positive views, but some stress free markets as a check on government power; other stress juridical limits on state power; while still others looking to a powerful administrative state to curtail the excesses of raw capitalism, as an antidote to revolutionary forms of democratic socialism and communism.

How has the meaning of democracy changed over time?

The core of its meaning - literally, in the Greek, people power - hasn't changed much at all. But what the power of a people in practice means has varied quite a bit. In ancient Athens, ordinary citizens governed the city directly in regular popular assemblies, and staffed up the administration and justice systems through random selection by lot. In modern democratic societies, citizens characteristically get to choose periodically among professional politicians, and in some societies they also have a right to free speech, and to protest peacefully in between elections.

How does democracy slip into despotism?

The ancient authorities, Plato for example, assumed ordinary people would attempt to redistribute the wealth of richer citizens, which in fact happened to some extent in ancient Athens - they feared that ordinary people, as a group, could exercise a kind of tyranny over those who were wealthier and better educated. They also feared that ordinary people would rally around a popular leader (or "demagogue"), who might gradually assume tyrannical powers, though such powers were in fact quite difficult to obtain in ancient Athens. In modern democracies, unfortunately, it is easier for a single person, even if democratically elected by the people, to try to usurp the powers of legislatures and courts - this is the threat we currently see in countries as different as Hungary, Poland, the United States and Brazil.

What are some of the most common misconceptions about democracy?

In the UK and US, many people simply assume that liberal and democratic institutions and norms are mutually reinforcing, rather than standing in tension, if not contradiction. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, a lot of people also assumed that liberal democracy is the logical end of political history, and that the world was on the right political path. Those assumptions were obviously mistaken.

How would you view the election of Donald Trump in relation to modern democracy?

It is a notable irony of the American situation that Donald Trump became President because of the most undemocratic feature of the US Constitution (which was designed specifically to thwart majorities, and limit the power of ordinary citizens): the Electoral College. He was not supported by the majority of Americans who voted in 2016. In that sense, Trump lacks the kind of democratic legitimacy enjoyed by the current rulers of Poland, Hungary and Brazil.

What about Britain’s Brexit vote?

This will surely go down in history as one of the biggest political blunders and unforced errors made by a duly elected Prime Minister. Why would an avowed conservative like David Cameron think it wise to ask ordinary citizens to vote on a complex and fairly technical policy matter in an up or down referendum vote? His was the hubris of a technocratic liberal, a professional politician who in fact holds ordinary people in contempt, and therefore assumes they will follow the lead of elite opinion. Oops.

You talk about “new ways” in which democratic systems (and people’s faith in them) might be restored. What might those new ways look like?

What I wrote in my book was that "we should explore new ways to foster a tolerant ethos that accepts, and can acknowledge, that there are many incompatible form of life, and forms of politics, not always directly democratic or participatory, in which humans can flourish." It was a bit of a wan prayer, to be honest. But I also meant to suggest that the modern faith in democracy is sometimes otiose, even perverse. It should be tempered by a certain humility, and sense of "the enigma of life," as Vaclav Havel once put it. We shouldn't let democracy be turned into a pseudo-scientific utopia.

Are you optimistic for the future of democracy?

My outlook is perhaps best summed up in a phrase of Romain Rolland, repeated by Gramsci in his prison writings: "pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will."

          The Guardian view on Iran sanctions: not upholding the rules, but overturning them | Editorial      Cache   Translate Page      

Current US policy has the clear goal of regime change. Europe must stand firm

The imposition of sanctions on Iran is designed to curb its “outlaw behaviour”, the US says. Donald Trump said the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action “cannot prevent an Iranian bomb” when he announced the US withdrawal from the treaty in May. This week his administration restored all sanctions lifted under the 2015 denuclearisation deal and added more (albeit with a six-month waiver for major oil customers). But the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN body policing the agreement, has verified repeatedly that Tehran has complied with its terms. European co-signatories agree. Meanwhile, Mr Trump has continued to attack the “worst deal ever” – while boasting of progress with North Korea, which already has a nuclear arsenal and is unlikely to reduce it, whatever its nice words. This is not about upholding rules and commitments; it is about imposing might unilaterally.

Tellingly, the administration has shifted its rhetorical justification to a laundry list of more general foreign policy demands which it knows Tehran will not and cannot agree to, however desirable some of those measures might be. Its stated aim of a better treaty does not deserve to be taken seriously. Lord Lamont, the UK’s trade envoy to Iran, says bluntly that the sanctions are aimed at regime change, whatever the US denials. The administration sees ordinary Iranians as an instrument; but “ghost shipments” and barter with countries such as China, Russia and India will probably keep Iran going, and while Iranians will face real hardship, they are more likely to flee than rise against a repressive regime.

Cuba, North Korea Reaffirm Historic Ties at First Summit in Thirty Years
DPRK state media hails two nations' "special friendship" and "joint struggle" against imperialism

Colin Zwirko
North Korea News 
November 5th, 2018

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel arrived in Pyongyang on Sunday for the first state visit by a Cuban leader to North Korea in over thirty years, joining the country’s leader Kim Jong Un in condemning the “imperialists’ policy of aggression,” DPRK state media reported on Monday.

Kim greeted Díaz-Canel at Pyongyang International Airport with a ceremonial welcome, which included a surprising backdrop of painted portraits of the two leaders – a first for the Kim Jong Un era.

The meeting represents Kim’s eighth summit with a foreign head of state this year.

The two then held an official meeting, attended an arts performance, and held a dinner banquet, where there were discussions over expanding scientific and economic cooperation and reaffirming historic ties, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

At a dinner banquet late Sunday, Kim Jong Un reportedly said Díaz-Canel’s visit “marked a watershed in demonstrating the will to carry forward forever the friendship between the two countries.”

Díaz-Canel also echoed recent statements from Kim and elsewhere in DPRK state media alluding to the struggle against the U.S. and others amid ongoing denuclearization negotiations.

Speaking at the banquet, Díaz-Canel “voiced his will to meet all challenges by the hostile forces and to invariably carry forward the traditional friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries.”

An editorial in Sunday’s Rodong Sinmun welcoming the Cuban state visit also prominently featured this idea, saying the two countries “are moving forward shoulder to shoulder in the joint struggle against the imperialists’ policy of aggression and war and for peace and the victory of socialist cause.”

“Today the Cuban people hold higher the banner of anti-imperialist independence and socialism in the face of tough sanctions and pressure by the imperialists under the guidance of Raul Castro Ruz and Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez true to the behests of Fidel Castro Ruz,” it added.

U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton last Friday said the Trump administration was tightening sanctions, closing loopholes, and was poised to impose new designations on dozens of Cuban military and intelligence individuals, describing Havana as being part of a “Troika of Tyranny” alongside Venezuela and Nicaragua.

Cuban state outlet Prensa Latina’s coverage of the DPRK visit also said the country “supports the process of rapprochement and ongoing dialogue on the Korean Peninsula as a way to achieve lasting peace in the region, and opposes the unilateral and arbitrary sanctions against Pyongyang.”

The two also reportedly discussed during talks at the Paekhwawon State Guest House “exchanges in various fields including economy, culture, public health, science and technology to meet common interests,” KCNA reported on Monday.

The two countries enjoy a “special friendship” based on a shared “socialist principle” and a long history of cooperation and friendship, it added.

During the first day of Díaz-Canel’s visit, the Cuban President was treated to crowds of Pyongyang citizens mobilized to line the streets to wave at the passing motorcade on the way into town from the airport – similar to those most recently seen during South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s visit in September.

Kim and Díaz-Canel also attended an arts performance featuring the Samjiyon Orchestra and the reappearance of the Moranbong Electronic Ensemble, where Cuban songs and other odes to socialism were played.

The visit marks the first from a Cuban leader to North Korea since Fidel Castro’s 1986 trip to Pyongyang, and comes almost 60 years after veteran revolutionary Ché Guevara traveled there in 1960.

Díaz-Canel has visited North Korea before, however, having traveled to Pyongyang and met Kim Jong Un in his capacity as Cuban Vice President back in 2015.

No North Korean leader has ever visited Havana.

Díaz-Canel is also set to also meet with President of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly Kim Yong Nam, according to Cuba’s foreign ministry.

He will depart Pyongyang on Tuesday on his way towards China, Vietnam, and Laos.

          LCQ1: Problems in economic development of Hong Kong      Cache   Translate Page      
     Following is a question by the Hon Paul Tse and a written reply by the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Edward Yau, in the Legislative Council today (November 7):

Question:
 
     Recently, several think tanks and economists have coincidentally pointed out that with dark clouds of a trade war between China and the United States (US) hovering, there are concerns about the way forward for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) in the context of national development strategies and international politics.  In the event that the US authorities take any targeted measures, Hong Kong may lose the tariff exemption arrangement for its exports to US.  They are also worried that the reclamation works for the construction of artificial islands under the "Lantau Tomorrow Vision" announced in this year's Policy Address may cost hundreds of billions, or even trillions, of dollars (i.e. the bulk of the fiscal reserves), which may undermine the confidence of foreign investors in, and cause depreciation in the value of, the Hong Kong dollar and induce attacks on the Linked Exchange Rate (LER) System by foreign exchange speculators.  In this connection, will the Government inform this Council:
 
(1) whether it has studied how Hong Kong should position itself while it is caught in the long-standing political arm-wrestling and trade war between China and US, so as to align itself with the national strategic initiatives on the one hand and strive for the continuation of the various types of preferential treatments on tariffs, visas, etc. that Hong Kong has been enjoying for many years on the other;

Reply:
 
President,

     Having consulted the Development Bureau and the Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau, our consolidated reply for the four parts of the question is as follows:
 
     Hong Kong enjoys unique status and advantages under the Basic Law and "one country, two systems".  According to Article 116 of the Basic Law, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is a separate customs territory.  Article 151 of the Basic Law provides that Hong Kong may participate in international organisations, including participation in the World Trade Organization (WTO) as a separate member and maintaining economic and trade relationships with the other 163 members of the WTO. 
      
     We have been promoting Hong Kong's unique advantages to the world and promoting bilateral and multilateral ties through various channels, such as overseas visits of government officials and overseas Economic and Trade Offices (ETOs).  Since taking office in July last year, the Chief Executive has attended a number of international conferences and paid visits to more than ten countries.  Similarly, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development has also actively participated in international conferences and paid visits to a number of countries, including his visit to Washington DC, the United States (US), in September 2018, during which he met with government officials, members of the Congress, think tanks as well as the business community, and explained clearly Hong Kong's unique status under the Basic Law.
      
     Hong Kong's unique status under the Basic Law is well recognised and respected by the international community.  Building on this foundation, Hong Kong's trading partners around the world have been conducting trade, commerce and investment with us.  This is evident from the setting up of regional headquarters by international companies in Hong Kong. We provide a level playing field for all companies.  Together with our competitive and the most free and open business environment, Hong Kong has always been commended by the international community.
      
     As for the Hong Kong-US economic and trade relation, since Hong Kong's return to the Motherland, the US has continued to maintain and expand economic and trade ties with Hong Kong based on our unique status.  The US side also reiterated earlier that the US continues to have deep economic and cultural interests in Hong Kong.  Counting on the basis of individual economies, the US is Hong Kong's 2nd largest merchandise trading partner in the world, while Hong Kong is the US' 9th largest export market. According to US statistics, the total merchandise and services trade between the US and Hong Kong in 2017 reached US$69 billion.  The US has been enjoying the highest trade surplus with Hong Kong among its global trading partners, valued at US$34.5 billion in 2017, of which US$32.5 billion was surplus in merchandise trade.  In addition, Hong Kong and the US maintain close investment relations.  In 2016, the US was the 6th major source of inward direct investment into Hong Kong while the US was the 8th major destination of outward direct investment from Hong Kong.  It is in the US and Hong Kong's mutual interest to maintain and promote our bilateral relations.  The Government will continue to enhance Hong Kong's economic and trade ties with the US.
      
     Nevertheless, since the beginning of this year, the US has initiated conflicts in international trade, trade protectionism has risen, and the trade conflict between China and the US has been escalating.  Apart from the direct impact on trade in goods, the impact on Hong Kong as a whole and on the global economy has begun to emerge.  The uncertainties of the external environment have increased markedly, and the global economy as well as trade and investment sentiment have also deteriorated.  Although the current economic data are still good, the outlook is not optimistic.  Many institutions have lowered their forecasts for global economic growth next year and Hong Kong economy cannot stay immune.
      
     The Government has been closely monitoring developments of the China-US trade conflict and their impact on Hong Kong economy, maintaining close communication and exchanging information with the trade, and responding promptly to their needs.  In the short to medium term, the Government has announced and implemented a number of targeted measures in response to the trade's needs, including strengthening various SME funding schemes to assist the trade in market promotion and development of the Mainland and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) markets; enhancing the special concessionary measures of the SME Financing Guarantee Scheme operated by the HKMC Insurance Limited to further alleviate the financing burden of local enterprises; strengthening protection of Hong Kong exporters affected by the US tariff measures through the Hong Kong Export Credit Insurance Corporation; and assisting the trade to develop markets and transfer production base through the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.
      
     In the medium to long term, as pointed out by the Chief Executive in her Policy Address, leveraging on our unique strength under "one country, two systems", we will continue to respect economic principles, uphold operation of the market and promote free trade.  We will also strive to develop new areas of economic growth.  The National 13th Five-Year Plan pledges support for Hong Kong to reinforce and enhance its status as an international financial, transportation and trade centre; develop its innovation and technology industry; and establish itself as a centre for international legal and dispute resolution services in the Asia-Pacific region.  The Belt and Road Initiative of our country as well as the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area development have brought enormous opportunities for the economic development of Hong Kong.  The Government will do its best as a "facilitator" and "promotor", seizing opportunities to capitalise on Hong Kong's strengths to serve the country's needs, and seeking active liaison with the world to explore more business opportunities.
      
     At the international level, the Government will continue to actively forge free trade agreements (FTAs) and investment agreements with our trading partners.  We have already signed FTAs with ASEAN and Georgia respectively and have concluded negotiations with the Maldives. Our bilateral negotiations with Australia are ongoing, and we will explore FTAs with the United Kingdom and the Pacific Alliance and seek accession to the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership.  We will also expand our network of ETOs, and we expect to set up the ETO in Bangkok early next year and the ETO in Dubai as soon as possible.  We will continue our discussion with the respective governments on setting up the ETOs in Moscow, Mumbai and Seoul.
      
     Regarding the "Lantau Tomorrow Vision" promulgated by the Government, the major consideration is the long-term development need of Hong Kong.  The Government does not have an estimate of the relevant project cost at this stage.  Since the proposed projects will be implemented in phases, the project cost will be spread over many years.  In formulating the implementation strategy for the "Lantau Tomorrow Vision", the Government will take into account relevant factors like the fiscal sustainability and conduct detailed financial assessment to ensure that the project expenditure is fiscally affordable by the Government.

     As for the Linked Exchange Rate System (LERS), it has served as a strong anchor for Hong Kong's monetary and financial stability.  It has proved to be highly resilient in a series of regional and global financial crises.  We will continue to uphold our firm commitment to ensuring the effective operation of the LERS in maintaining monetary and financial stability of Hong Kong.

A daring sting operation. The great untold national security story of our time: “An impressive and important work…The book has the glamour of a spy novel and the gravity of a meticulously researched exposé” (Christian Science Monitor). On today’s high-tech battlefields, the most lethal weapons are not the big ones, but rather the ones that are small enough to be smuggled inside a pack of chewing gum. Developed and manufactured in the United States at extraordinary cost, these tiny weapons of war—which can guide missiles, see through walls, and trigger anything from a wireless IED to a nuclear weapon—are what currently give the US its military advantage. Unfortunately, they are increasingly being discovered in the hands of our enemies. In Operation Shakespeare, Pulitzer Prize finalist John Shiffman tells the true story of an elaborate sting operation launched by an elite Homeland Security team that was created to stop Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea from stealing US military technology. The sting, codenamed Operation Shakespeare, targets an Iranian arms broker who works on behalf of Tehran. Over the course of three years, the American agents go undercover to outwit not only the Iranian, but US defense contractors and bankers willing to put profit over national security. The chase moves around the world, and as the United States tries to bring the Iranian to justice, his own government plots to assassinate him, fearful of what he might reveal. Tenacious, richly detailed, and boasting unprecedented access to both the Iranian broker and the US agents who caught him, “Operation Shakespeare reads like a spy thriller—but Shiffman’s meticulous reporting leaves no doubt that he is telling nothing less than scary truth” (Daily News, New York)
          America repudiates Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

Democrats convincingly won the 2018 midterm elections, though it was not as big of a wave election as some liberals had hoped. Just as in 2016, the polls were badly wrong in a number of states, particularly Indiana and Florida, where Democrats lost tough races they were predicted to win.

Nevertheless, it was a solid victory — and a clear repudiation of the odious politics of the Republican Party. The Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives with an estimated 7-point popular vote margin and won a number of key structural races at the state level. Michigan will now have automatic voter registration and nonpartisan redistricting, while Florida will re-enfranchise some 1.4 million ex-felons, just for starters.

As I wrote before the polls closed, the most important thing to keep in mind about this election is that Republicans had massive structural advantages at every level. For one, this is a midterm election, which heavily favors the older, whiter Republican electorate, as seen in the 2010 and 2014 results. (Stated differently, there was no high-profile presidential candidate at the top of the ticket to drive up turnout among young people and minorities). For another, the economy — which is historically the strongest driver behind electoral outcomes — is doing better than it has done in at least a decade and perhaps 20 years.

In the House, Republicans have gerrymandered themselves to a roughly 5-6 point handicap in raw vote terms. And in the Senate, the Democrats were facing the worst map in at least two decades, with a large proportion of their caucus up for re-election and those elections happening to take place in states Trump won.

Finally, in many states Republicans flagrantly cheated in addition to their gerrymandering. In North Dakota, they deliberately tried to disenfranchise a huge fraction of the Native American population with Jim Crow tactics. In Georgia, the Republican gubernatorial candidate who was also overseeing his own election tried dirty tricks out of the Tayyip Erdoğan handbook to keep Democrats from voting. And still, the GOP lost control of the House.

Properly considered, therefore, this was a stark rebuke of the Republican Party and President Trump, which had pushed almost all their political chips onto the bigotry square over the last few weeks. During the campaign, they barely mentioned their only major policy accomplishment, their giant tax cut for the rich. They flagrantly lied about their only other attempted policy: the repeated efforts to repeal ObamaCare, which would snatch coverage for tens of millions of people and badly weaken protections for pre-existing conditions. Trump as usual summed up the ridiculous Republican pretzel logic by saying "the Democrat plan would obliterate Obamacare" at a rally on Election Day.

Instead they based their campaign on lies that a group of bedraggled refugees are mostly gang assassins and ISIS terrorists, lies that all Latino immigrants are grinning cop murderers — in an ad so racist even Fox News pulled it off the air — lies about Democrats somehow shipping jobs to North Korea, flagrant anti-Semitism, and on and on.

It's an open question whether this was a considered strategy, a desperate Hail Mary pass, simply the only place they had to go politically, or just the state of the Republican id in 2018. Nevertheless, it did not work.

In a democracy, there is naturally a tendency to conclude that the public must generally agree with whatever the ruling party espouses. In most cases, that is not a strictly fair conclusion — just witness Brazil, where the far-right candidate won because the far more popular lefty candidate was locked up in jail — but at the same time, if a country is even nominally democratic, the actions, rhetoric, and beliefs of the government do bear on how the public votes to some degree.

This election is a clear demonstration that the Republican Party and its leader Donald Trump are badly out of step with the mainstream of American society. Polls have already demonstrated that many of its policy views are extremely unpopular, but talking to a pollster is a considerably different proposition than casting a vote for someone who will exercise political power. On Tuesday we saw that a sizable majority of the American public was willing to put their votes where their mouths are.

In this election, the Republican Party competed on some of the most favorable terrain it is likely to have over the next several cycles. The 2020 election year will see President Trump on the ballot, an extremely difficult Senate map for Republicans, several more states that are not under full GOP control, and quite possibly a much less favorable economic environment.

A battle has been won, and the next might win the war.

          Rep. Chris Collins, Facing Charges of Securities Fraud, Re-Elected in New York      Cache   Translate Page      

Rep. Chris Collins, an early Trump supporter who is fighting an indictment over charges of securities fraud, appeared to win re-election in his Buffalo, New York, area district.

Nate McMurray, a relatively low-profile and poorly funded candidate whom Collins had attacked in a racist ad this fall, conceded the election. McMurray later demanded a recount.

In the controversial ad during the campaign, McMurray, whose wife is originally from South Korea, is seen speaking Korean, in a video the candidate made before the summer’s North Korea summit. In the captions written by Collins’ campaign, the ad suggests McMurray wants “fewer jobs for us” and “more jobs for China and Korea.” At one point, a photo of Kim Jong-un appears in the background.

In August, Collins was arrested in connection to his role on the board of a small Australian biotech firm called Innate Immunotherapeutics. According to federal prosecutors, Collins let his son know about a failed test for a new drug, allowing Cameron and his father-in-law to avoid $750,000 in losses by selling the company’s stock before it dropped. Collins was charged with securities fraud, conspiracy, wire fraud, and making false statements. Previously, the Daily Beast had also reported that Collins had drafted or sponsored several bills that would have directly affected Innate Immunotherapeutics.

Collins has maintained that he is innocent of the charges, but he initially said he would withdraw from the race. He later changed his mind, citing the difficulty of removing his name from the ballot—a valid concern, as the New York Times reported that doing so would have likely led to a lawsuit from the Democrats. Still, it seemed likely even then he would win re-election, as the district is one of New York’s most conservative.

Collins was the first of two early Trump backers to be charged with federal crimes, as California Rep. Duncan Hunter, who is also up for re-election, was indicted two weeks later.

          WND Does More State-Media Work For Trump At Midterms      Cache   Translate Page      

Becoming total pro-Trump state media didn't keep WorldNetDaily from circling the drain not once but twice this year. So what did WND do to prepare its dwindling readership for the midterms? Double down on sucking up to Trump.

An anonymously written Oct. 29 article updated one of WND's old tricks, a dubious list of Trump's alleged "accomplishments":

If Americans want more of deregulation, lower taxes, economic growth, record-low unemployment, job creation, immigration enforcement, border security, a stronger military, conservative judges, improved trade deals and unprecedented foreign policy victories with nations such as North Korea, the party of the person they vote for in congressional elections matters.

Since WND published a list of 183 accomplishments in Trump’s first 14 months, the president has continued to fulfill campaign promises.

Most recently, Brett Kavanaugh became the second judge confirmed to the Supreme Court who interprets the Constitution according to the text, following Neil Gorsuch. The negotiation of a trade deal with Mexico and Canada to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, fulfilled a major campaign vow. Another eight trade deals have been negotiated with Japan, South Korea, Europe and China.

In a typical diplomatic victory, the Trump administration, employing tough sanctions and behind-the-scenes diplomatic maneuvers, secured in October the release of pastor Andrew Brunson from an otherwise defiant Turkish regime, without any apparent concessions.

The only thing more embarrassingly fawning than this article was WND editor Joseph Farah's Nov. 2 column promoting it:

Who knows how things will turn out next Tuesday?

If the results were based on good outcomes, the party supporting the incumbent president might just turn the midterm jinx on its head.

But there’s the media, of course.

There’s also the media-amplifiers at Google and Facebook and Twitter.

Then there’s academia.

There’s also the Big Cities.

There’s the Deep State.

And then there are stupid people.

Otherwise, how could he NOT rock the house?

It shouldn’t even be close.

I’m optimistic. I was in 2016. I said so. In fact, I may have been overly optimistic – even fantasizing about how even New Yorkers and Californians could shock the country with their votes.

But here’s what I want you to do for us right now – before it’s too late.

I want you to spread this BIG, BIG, BIG LIST OF TRUMP ACCOMPLISHMENTS far and wide before Election Day.

It’s truly breathtaking.

[...]

Before Trump, my standard was Reagan. I didn’t think we’d ever see another president like him. I was wrong. He out-conservatived Reagan – without even trying.

Where does the man get the energy, the stamina, the grit?

God bless him.

He did what he said he would do.

How often do you see that?

I can’t even think of a significant disappointment. When has that ever happened?

Farah's full-metal suck-up continued in his Nov. 5 column, with added Divine Donald silliness:

Despite all Donald Trump as done in the last 24 months, and make note of it, we are on the precipice of throwing it all away.

This is what not just the “fake news media” have done. This is what Google and Facebook have wrought on us all when powerful, special interests turn the truth on its head.

Am I throwing in the towel?

Not at all. I have never sold Donald Trump short. He is a force of nature. I’m always been a fan. He has stood boldly and with clarity. But I’m just not sure how far his voice can carry.

Maybe God gave us a stark choice between Barack Obama and Donald Trump and said: “Choose.”

Farah than complained: "There was a time in America at which we could talk to one another, respect differences of opinion and agree to disagree. That is long gone. There is no tolerance for dissent or disagreement." He wrote that without irony, apparently oblivious to his and WND's major role refusing to respect differences of opinion (he refused to call Obama the president, remember?) and his own very thin skin regarding any criticism of him and his website.

And just a few paragraphs earlier, he was demonizing and maliciously mischaracterizing anyone who disagreed with his view of the midterms:

Choose between one who believes in nation-states and one who does not.

Choose between one who breaks the law and one who does not.

Choose between one who fosters the production of wealth and one who does not.

Choose between one who supports life and one who does not.

Choose between one who supports Brett Kavanaugh and one who promotes scurrilous, unsubstantiated accusations.

Choose between one who acts in the best interest of his country and one who does not.

Choose between whether sovereign citizens vote or just anybody.

You get the idea. This is what it has become in the United States of America in 2018. It’s a critical state of the affairs indeed. Though we have been blessed by two years of Donald Trump, the choice is clear, and about half the country appears relatively close to choosing unwisely – whether they have been manipulated or conned.

Is a person who thinks that anyone who disagrees with him must have been  "manipulated or conned" into having those views really sincerely concerned with the failure to "respect differences of opinion and agree to disagree"? Highly unlikely.

          How Self-Correcting Are We?      Cache   Translate Page      

By David K. Shipler

                A measure of a country’s health is its capacity for self-correction. The same holds true of an institution, even of an individual. The test is what happens when behavior departs from a course that is moral, legal, decent, and humane; when it sacrifices long-term vision for instant gratification; indulges in fear and fantasy; abandons truth; oppresses the weak; and promotes cruelty and corruption. The election tomorrow is a test.
                An open, pluralistic democracy can reform itself, and the United States has a long history of moral violations followed by corrections--or, at least, a degree of regret. The colonies’ and states’ persecution of religious minorities led to the First Amendment’s provision separating church and state. The atrocities against Native Americans led eventually to more honest teaching of history, although not the compensations for stolen land and destroyed cultures that the victims deserved. The scourge of slavery led to its abolition by the Thirteenth Amendment, the Civil War to a stronger (if imperfect) union, the Jim Crow segregationist laws to an uplifting civil rights movement and a wave of anti-discrimination measures by Congress and the courts.
The denial of women’s suffrage was reversed by the Nineteenth Amendment. The internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II was ruled unconstitutional, albeit too late for the prisoners. The character assassinations by Senator Joseph McCarthy of imagined communists, ruining careers and lives, were ultimately repudiated as repugnant and, in themselves, un-American. The illicit FBI and CIA spying on antiwar and other dissident groups led to a series of federal statutes regulating domestic surveillance, although those laws were watered down after 9/11. And most recently, the society’s broad distaste for homosexuality was revised into broad acceptance, including a Supreme Court decision overturning laws against gay marriage.
These and many other issues demonstrate that progress does not move in a straight line. The correction is never quite complete, and there is backsliding. While blacks in the South were once denied the vote by means of poll taxes and literacy tests, Republicans have now employed other means to the same end, purging registration rolls, for example, moving and reducing polling places in minority areas, and discarding registration forms on the basis of flimsy inconsistencies.
But in the long run, when this democracy damages its own interests and others’ well-being, it experiences something of a gravitational pull toward the more solid ground of social justice. That happened in the civil rights movement when the brutality of the segregationists, unleashing dogs, cops, and thugs to attack nonviolent demonstrators, became ugly enough to mobilize the conscience of the country. What will it take to mobilize the conscience today?
Since Donald Trump began campaigning for the presidency, and continuing into his tenure in the White House, he has led the United States down a steep descent. He has played to the bigotry of his base of rightwing extremists and created a tinderbox of domestic terrorism, as Stephen Tankel warns. He has given license to racism and other forms of hatred. He has stoked the flames of grievance and resentment toward nonwhites, immigrants, and others considered outsiders. He has continued the Republicans’ practices of politicizing the courts, thereby undermining that vital branch of government. And now, by sending troops to the Mexican border as props in the midterm election campaign, he has politicized the military as well.
He has lied steadily, created imagined threats, and dragged the Republican Party along with him into abysmal dishonesty. His attacks on the press, aimed at sowing disbelief in accurate reporting, have helped to set the country adrift from factual reality. He has thereby hung a blank canvas on which he can paint any monstrous fantasy that he wishes—and a large minority of Americans will believe him.
He touts himself as a promise-keeper, but he has broken his nation’s promises internationally, on climate, on nuclear nonproliferation, and on trade—and with tariffs has damaged farmers and small businessmen who supported him. He has insulted allies and praised autocrats, who now cite him to justify their oppression. Trump has thereby converted the United States into a model for dictators, not democrats.
            The President has dislodged his great country from its pinnacle on the international order—diplomatically, militarily, and economically—into a go-it-alone outlier which will have fewer friends when needed. He has planted the seeds of global collapse into an anarchic array of parochial nationalisms.
             Domestically, he is dismantling to an extreme the regulatory mechanisms that have promoted cleaner air, cleaner water, workplace safety, consumer rights, restrictions on harmful chemicals, pharmaceutical oversight, and protections for employees and investors. The radicals in his cabinet have gone far beyond reasonable trims of excessive regulation, and are putting ordinary Americans at risk. His Republican Party has slashed corporate taxes and increased the deficit, pushing up job growth but also injecting what some analysts regard as an unsustainable “sugar high” into the economy and the stock market. He runs the most corrupt government in modern history, self-dealing and using his position to enrich himself and his family. He and the Republicans in Congress continually threaten health benefits under Obamacare, Medicare, and Medicaid.
             Trump has not created anything significant. His new trade deal with Mexico and Canada contain only marginal improvements over NAFTA, which he campaigned to eliminate. He has no new trade agreement with China, and he cast aside the Trans-Pacific pact that would have strengthened American commerce in the region at Chinese expense.
He has done nothing for Israeli-Palestinian peace except antagonize one of the parties, the Palestinians, by moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem and thereby eliminating the US as an honest broker. He has given Saudi Arabia a blank check in its merciless war in Yemen, bringing widespread starvation to innocents there. In abandoning the nuclear pact with Iran, he has squandered leverage to negotiate an improvement. He has nothing to show for his vaunted summit with the North Korea leader, Kim jung-un, except a suspension of testing and hostile rhetoric, which is all to the good, except that there is no deal to end their nuclear program.
             And despite Vladimir Putin’s miscalculation in preferring Trump over Clinton in the 2016 election, Trump’s awed admiration for the Russian leader has not translated into real policy. Trump has simply withdrawn from the 1987 INF treaty restricting intermediate-range nuclear missiles without trying to negotiate a new agreement that would stop Russia’s cheating and include China in a set of restraints.
            The one thing that Trump has managed to create is a cult of personality among his followers, to the point of terrifying Republicans who go against him. That has given voters tomorrow little choice of sensible Republicans who would put a check on Trump. Now, only Democrats can do that.
Contrary to some expectations during the 2016 campaign and shortly after his election, Trump has not become a political liability to his party. So he’s made this midterm vote all about him. It will be a referendum of sorts, and therefore a test of whether the country is ready to take a first step in the process of self-correction or will have to continue farther down this path before realizing where it has led.

          Comment on The West is Failing Julian Assange by Gary Weglarz      Cache   Translate Page      
In both its posture toward, and its treatment of Assange, the West demonstrates its complete lack of morality and lack of any ethical integrity, not to mention its blatant hypocrisy regarding freedom of the press. One can only imagine the pressure/threats and/or bribes offered Ecuador to insure they quietly turn the screws yet further, and how perfect, since it isn't the U.K. or U.S. officially doing the current dirty work in this sordid game, though it is clear to any who would look who actually pulls these strings. Where are the vaunted Western human rights NGO's, or the U.N. for that matter? Too busy perhaps helping Western empire vilify Russia to notice - all while the U.K. & U.S. insure Assange is consigned to what amounts to life in some Kafkaesque sensory deprivation gulag in the heart of oh so "civilized" London. As always the West, its NGO's and its MSM are predictably obsessed with the "human rights situation" of dissidents in say North Korea or Iran, but somehow manage to be completely oblivious to, and markedly uninterested in our own ongoing barbaric behavior in our treatment of Julian Assange.

          Symantec Acquisitions Further AI Strategy      Cache   Translate Page      

Symantec this week moved this week to expand its portfolio of security offerings by acquiring Appthority and Javelin Networks as part of a larger artificial intelligence (AI) strategy being driven by a combination of internal organic research and development and inorganic acquisitions.

Sri Sundaralingam, head of product marketing for enterprise security products at Symantec, said the acquisitions of Appthority and Javelin Networks will advance an AI security strategy dubbed Integrated Cyber Defense Platform, which feeds data collected from various endpoints into a set of cloud-based security intelligence applications based on machine and deep learning algorithms.

Symantec Acquisitions Further AI Strategy

Appthority is a provider of mobile application security analysis software, while Javelin Networks provides software that prevents cybercriminals from exploiting Microsoft Active Directory software to better target their attacks. Symantec intends to rebrand these offerings and incorporate them into a larger cybersecurity AI framework, Sundaralingam said.

The rise of AI is driving a wave of vendor consolidation across the IT security industry, he noted, as smaller IT security vendors discover they are not able to collect enough data on their own to drive AI models. Those vendors either will be acquired by larger companies that can collect enough data to drive those AI models or they will need to find a way to add value by participating in a larger ecosystem by taking advantage of open application programming interfaces (APIs) to share and access data, he said.

Signature and behavioral-based approaches to cybersecurity will no longer suffice,Sundaralingam said, noting the tactics and scale of the attacks being launched require a more real-time response that’s only possible when employing machine and deep learning algorithms.

In fact, the need to rely on AI to provide that level of response has made endpoint security more relevant than ever, he added. Not only are cybercriminals launching targeted attacks such as ransomware against endpoints, but the data collected by endpoint security tools as they combat those attacks informs the rest of cybersecurity frameworks on how to identify and respond better to that specific type of attack.

Sundaralingam said the IT security industry is still in the early to mid-stage of AI adoption. No one expects AI to replace the need for cybersecurity experts anytime soon. But given the shortage of cybersecurity expertise, there is a need to employ machines to augment the capabilities of cybersecurity personnel, who are already overtaxed. That’s especially critical as cybersecurity criminals employ machine and deep learning algorithms to further their own nefarious aims.

There may never be such a thing as perfect security. But the current state of security leaves much to desired. As the number of applications deployed by an organization increases, the risks associated with a cybersecurity breach exponentially increase. The only way to reduce those odds going forward is to rely more on AI to level a playing field that today tips in favor of the attacker.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's planned meeting with a senior North Korean official Thursday in New York City has been postponed. The State Department issued a statement early Wednesday morning saying the meeting "will now take place at a later date. We will reconvene when our respective schedules permit.” The statement did not give a reason why the meeting was called off.  Pompeo was slated to hold talks with Kim Yong Chol, a senior advisor to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. In announcing the meeting earlier this week, the State Department said the two men would discuss "making progress on all four pillars of the Singapore Summit joint statement, including achieving the final, fully verified denuclearization" of North Korea.  Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump signed an agreement at their landmark summit in June to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons, but the two sides have been at odds over the pace of Pyongyang's efforts to end its nuclear weapons program. North Korea warned last week that it will consider reviving its nuclear weapons program if the United States fails to lift its crippling economic sanctions against the regime. It is also seeking a peace treaty with the United States and South Korea that will formally end the 1950-53 Korean War that split the communist North from the democratic South.

          Newly empowered, House Democrats plan to launch immediate investigations of Trump, but leaders are wary of impeachment      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON - House Democrats are prepared to launch multiple investigations of President Donald Trump next year but are wary of immediately pursuing impeachment - seeking to satisfy an energized base without alienating the voters they need in the next election.

Despite widespread support among Democrats to try to remove Trump from office, party leaders are worried that such an explosive move could create peril in 2020 for lawmakers who represent districts the president carried in his first bid. Instead, Democrats are expected to use their newly regained majority to scrutinize Trump administration policies on immigration, education and health care, and to examine his personal finances and potential ties to Russia. "For those who want impeachment, that's not what our caucus is about," House Minority Leader Pelosi, D-Calif., told PBS's "NewsHour" on Tuesday before the party clinched the majority. She said she would not move to impeach Trump unless at least some Republicans were on board. Pelosi added that she will wait to see the outcome of the special counsel investigation, but noted that a call for impeachment "would have to be bipartisan, and the evidence would have to be so conclusive." Resistance by party leaders to embracing an impeachment effort could cause a significant backlash among the party's restive liberal flank. According to a Washington Post-Schar School poll Tuesday of voters in battleground districts, nearly two-thirds of those who voted for Democratic House candidates want Congress to begin impeachment proceedings that could lead to Trump's removal from office. But party leaders said they need to be judicious about using new committee gavels to strike Trump - knowing that their actions could energize an angry Republican base if they beat him up indiscriminately. "We have to be as strategic and methodical as we possibly can," said one senior Democratic aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal strategy. "If subpoenas go flying, and lawsuits go flying, you're in the mud with [Trump] - and that's what he wants." Democrats are expected to focus their scrutiny on areas in which they believe Trump's actions are demonstrably unethical or unconstitutional and on administrative decisions that affect people's security and livelihoods, officials said. "Where people go wrong is in seeing oversight in this really small prism of 'How are you going to go after Donald Trump?' That's not it at all," said Ashley Etienne, a spokeswoman for Pelosi, who is expected to be elected House speaker. "We're going to run two lanes: protecting and defending the Constitution and addressing the things we're fighting for, like access to health care and the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs," she said. The House Judiciary Committee will likely take the lead on health care, beginning with an investigation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions's refusal to defend the Obama-era health-care law against a lawsuit from Republican-led states. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who is set to become chairman next year, tweeted late Tuesday: "@realDonaldTrump may not like it, but he and his administration will be held accountable to our laws and to the American people." Meanwhile, Democrats on the Education and Workforce Committee are poised to examine Education Secretary Betsy DeVos's efforts to relax regulations for for-profit colleges and limit student loan forgiveness. Democrats believe both issues will resonate with voters struggling to meet mounting costs of health care and higher education, regardless of party. Party leaders are also eager to probe Trump's finances - beginning with his tax returns, which he has refused to release, unlike his predecessors. Presumptive Democratic Ways and Means chairman Richard E. Neal, D-Mass., has said he intends to obtain them once in power, using a 1924 law that gives heads of the congressional tax-writing committees the right to request any person's tax returns. The panel could then make them public with a simple majority vote. Trump and other conservatives have suggested the White House might fight any effort by Democrats to obtain his tax returns, setting up a possible constitutional challenge that tests a 96-year-old law. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who is fiercely loyal to Trump, recently told the New York Times he would review any request from lawmakers with the relevant officials at the Treasury Department. Trump could also try to exert executive privilege over the material in a way that attempts to block it from being revealed. Separately, presumptive House Financial Services Committee chairman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and presumed House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif., could seek to unearth other information regarding Trump's holdings. Waters has requested - and as the committee head could subpoena - records that could dislodge closely held details of Deutsche Bank's relationship with the Trump Organization. The German bank lent Trump more than $400 million during a decade-long real estate buying spree that began in 2005, largely through its private wealth management office, not the commercial banking division that typically handles real estate. Schiff has also pledged to scrutinize "serious and credible allegations" that Russians may have laundered money through Trump's businesses, potentially giving the Kremlin leverage over the president. And he plans to investigate Russian election meddling more fiercely than Republicans, whom Schiff accused of using the intelligence panel to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller's probe. How intently Democrats focus on Russia depends in large part on how Mueller's probe - with which they have committed not to interfere - advances between now and January. On the Intelligence Committee, Schiff wants to scrutinize Trump's efforts to strike a nuclear deal with North Korea and the administration's willingness to cut deals with China, despite the national security threats the country poses. Democrats on his panel also plan to embark on a deep probe of Saudi Arabia and the Oct. 2 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which could further complicate Trump's efforts to pursue lucrative weapons deals with the kingdom. On the Judiciary Committee, Nadler is expected to dedicate attention to the rise of white supremacy and the proliferation of firearms - national debates that have been exacerbated by deadly shootings at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh last month and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February. Nadler also recently told the New York Times that he would scrutinize the FBI's review of sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, which Democrats have complained was too limited. To dig into Trump's allegiances abroad, Democrats may scrutinize Trump's hotel in downtown Washington - and the foreign clients who frequent it. Foreign dignitaries from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Philippines and elsewhere have patronized the hotel. Such transactions have prompted two lawsuits alleging that Trump is violating the Constitution's prohibition on presidents taking "emoluments," or payments, from foreign states. Such a probe would likely fall to the Oversight Committee, where incoming chairman Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., already plans to probe the "zero tolerance" policy that caused the detention of thousands of migrant children separated from their families while trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border, and the administration's intention to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census. The panel is also planning a broad investigation of the White House's security clearance process, after Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and former staff secretary Rob Porter were revealed to be operating without full clearances. The panel wants to balance those probes with renewed attention to the Trump administration's widely criticized response to Puerto Rico in the aftermath Hurricane Maria, and the continuing water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Though panel Democrats have not yet determined how many investigations they will launch at the start of the year, any number would be "going up from zero," one Democratic committee staffer said, complaining that "literally not one document, not subpoena was issued to the White House" by Republicans.

          Newly empowered, House Democrats plan to launch immediate investigations of Trump, but leaders are wary of impeachment      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON - House Democrats are prepared to launch multiple investigations of President Donald Trump next year but are wary of immediately pursuing impeachment - seeking to satisfy an energized base without alienating the voters they need in the next election.

Despite widespread support among Democrats to try to remove Trump from office, party leaders are worried that such an explosive move could create peril in 2020 for lawmakers who represent districts the president carried in his first bid. Instead, Democrats are expected to use their newly regained majority to scrutinize Trump administration policies on immigration, education and health care, and to examine his personal finances and potential ties to Russia. "For those who want impeachment, that's not what our caucus is about," House Minority Leader Pelosi, D-Calif., told PBS's "NewsHour" on Tuesday before the party clinched the majority. She said she would not move to impeach Trump unless at least some Republicans were on board. Pelosi added that she will wait to see the outcome of the special counsel investigation, but noted that a call for impeachment "would have to be bipartisan, and the evidence would have to be so conclusive." Resistance by party leaders to embracing an impeachment effort could cause a significant backlash among the party's restive liberal flank. According to a Washington Post-Schar School poll Tuesday of voters in battleground districts, nearly two-thirds of those who voted for Democratic House candidates want Congress to begin impeachment proceedings that could lead to Trump's removal from office. But party leaders said they need to be judicious about using new committee gavels to strike Trump - knowing that their actions could energize an angry Republican base if they beat him up indiscriminately. "We have to be as strategic and methodical as we possibly can," said one senior Democratic aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal strategy. "If subpoenas go flying, and lawsuits go flying, you're in the mud with [Trump] - and that's what he wants." Democrats are expected to focus their scrutiny on areas in which they believe Trump's actions are demonstrably unethical or unconstitutional and on administrative decisions that affect people's security and livelihoods, officials said. "Where people go wrong is in seeing oversight in this really small prism of 'How are you going to go after Donald Trump?' That's not it at all," said Ashley Etienne, a spokeswoman for Pelosi, who is expected to be elected House speaker. "We're going to run two lanes: protecting and defending the Constitution and addressing the things we're fighting for, like access to health care and the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs," she said. The House Judiciary Committee will likely take the lead on health care, beginning with an investigation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions's refusal to defend the Obama-era health-care law against a lawsuit from Republican-led states. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who is set to become chairman next year, tweeted late Tuesday: "@realDonaldTrump may not like it, but he and his administration will be held accountable to our laws and to the American people." Meanwhile, Democrats on the Education and Workforce Committee are poised to examine Education Secretary Betsy DeVos's efforts to relax regulations for for-profit colleges and limit student loan forgiveness. Democrats believe both issues will resonate with voters struggling to meet mounting costs of health care and higher education, regardless of party. Party leaders are also eager to probe Trump's finances - beginning with his tax returns, which he has refused to release, unlike his predecessors. Presumptive Democratic Ways and Means chairman Richard E. Neal, D-Mass., has said he intends to obtain them once in power, using a 1924 law that gives heads of the congressional tax-writing committees the right to request any person's tax returns. The panel could then make them public with a simple majority vote. Trump and other conservatives have suggested the White House might fight any effort by Democrats to obtain his tax returns, setting up a possible constitutional challenge that tests a 96-year-old law. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who is fiercely loyal to Trump, recently told the New York Times he would review any request from lawmakers with the relevant officials at the Treasury Department. Trump could also try to exert executive privilege over the material in a way that attempts to block it from being revealed. Separately, presumptive House Financial Services Committee chairman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and presumed House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif., could seek to unearth other information regarding Trump's holdings. Waters has requested - and as the committee head could subpoena - records that could dislodge closely held details of Deutsche Bank's relationship with the Trump Organization. The German bank lent Trump more than $400 million during a decade-long real estate buying spree that began in 2005, largely through its private wealth management office, not the commercial banking division that typically handles real estate. Schiff has also pledged to scrutinize "serious and credible allegations" that Russians may have laundered money through Trump's businesses, potentially giving the Kremlin leverage over the president. And he plans to investigate Russian election meddling more fiercely than Republicans, whom Schiff accused of using the intelligence panel to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller's probe. How intently Democrats focus on Russia depends in large part on how Mueller's probe - with which they have committed not to interfere - advances between now and January. On the Intelligence Committee, Schiff wants to scrutinize Trump's efforts to strike a nuclear deal with North Korea and the administration's willingness to cut deals with China, despite the national security threats the country poses. Democrats on his panel also plan to embark on a deep probe of Saudi Arabia and the Oct. 2 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which could further complicate Trump's efforts to pursue lucrative weapons deals with the kingdom. On the Judiciary Committee, Nadler is expected to dedicate attention to the rise of white supremacy and the proliferation of firearms - national debates that have been exacerbated by deadly shootings at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh last month and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February. Nadler also recently told the New York Times that he would scrutinize the FBI's review of sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, which Democrats have complained was too limited. To dig into Trump's allegiances abroad, Democrats may scrutinize Trump's hotel in downtown Washington - and the foreign clients who frequent it. Foreign dignitaries from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Philippines and elsewhere have patronized the hotel. Such transactions have prompted two lawsuits alleging that Trump is violating the Constitution's prohibition on presidents taking "emoluments," or payments, from foreign states. Such a probe would likely fall to the Oversight Committee, where incoming chairman Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., already plans to probe the "zero tolerance" policy that caused the detention of thousands of migrant children separated from their families while trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border, and the administration's intention to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census. The panel is also planning a broad investigation of the White House's security clearance process, after Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and former staff secretary Rob Porter were revealed to be operating without full clearances. The panel wants to balance those probes with renewed attention to the Trump administration's widely criticized response to Puerto Rico in the aftermath Hurricane Maria, and the continuing water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Though panel Democrats have not yet determined how many investigations they will launch at the start of the year, any number would be "going up from zero," one Democratic committee staffer said, complaining that "literally not one document, not subpoena was issued to the White House" by Republicans.

          Trump avoids rout in 'referendum', deadlock looms in split Congress (News Analysis)      Cache   Translate Page      

New York, Nov 7 (IANS) Political deadlock and a series of hobbling investigations loomed over the US with the Republican Party losing control of the House of Representatives even as President Donald Trump avoided a rout in the midterm elections billed as a referendum by retaining control of the Senate.

"In a certain way, I am on the ballot," Trump declared ahead of Tuesday's elections taking up the challenge of a referendum the Democrats had thrown at his polarising leadership.

A big Blue Wavea of Democratic support that could totally destabilise Trump did not quite materialise as he appeared to have held onto his base, even though his suburban support bled.

But the split control of the Congress will put a brake on Trump's conservative agenda and increase pressure on him and those close to him through a newly empowered Democratic Party's promised wave of investigations starting with the revival of the Congressional probe into the alleged Russian manipulation of the 2016 presidential election.

Facing the challenge, Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning "Two can play the game" and threatened counter investigations of Democrats.

This was probably the most hotly fought midterm in modern history framed by burning hot rhetoric, a campaign spending of $5.2 billion - the highest in midterms - and one of the biggest voter turnouts.

While the nation-wide results were incomplete on Wednesday morning, the Democrats had sealed their control of the House - the lower chamber of the Congress - winning 219 seats of the 535 - and projected to gain at least 29 seats -- while Republicans retained the Senate with at least 51 seats of the 100 with a gain of at least two.

The scale of the losses of House seats by the Republicans this time were nowhere near the 63 seats lost by the Democrats in former President Barack Obama's first midterm in 2010.

Legislators in the House of Representatives have only a two-year term which sets up a midterm challenge for the presidents who have a four-year term. (Senators have a six-year term.)

Trump went into the midterms with a strong economy - a 3.7 percent unemployment rate, the lowest in about 50 years, and a booming stock market - and foreign policy gains in forcing new trade deals with Canada and Mexico and a nuclear retreat by North Korea.

That muted some of the opposition to him and the Democratic Party's ambivalence towards illegal immigration as a caravan of several thousands of Central Americans marching under the flags Guatemala and Honduras marched towards the US roused Trump's base.

But his personal style of bombast and intimidation and deeply divisive rhetoric turned off many voters and brought on a big, angry turnout of voters in support of the Democratic Party.

The division was amplified by the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, who faced decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct as a teenager and a student. It became the rallying cry for women and liberals who saw it as further endorsement of misogyny and sexual misconduct that Trump had been accused of and as endangering legal abortion and other women's rights.

"When Democrats win, and we will win tonight, we will have a Congress that is open, transparent and accountable to the American people," Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to the reclaim the speakership, said on Tuesday night.

While she had earlier ruled out impeaching Trump as many in her party want to, her declaration about transparency and accountability were a warning about the expected investigations.

Trump countered with a challenge of his own in a tweet on Wednesday morning, "If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else."

Any changes to immigration law, matters relating to minorities and gays, and the budget and economic reforms requiring Congressional approval would be at stake.

But Trump's solid control of the Senate would give him free rein in appointing federal judges all the way to the Supreme Court as well as officials requiring Senate approval.

In some key races the Republicans leads over their Democratic Party rivals had been whittled down.

Among them were Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Georgia governorn candidate Brian Kemp who had barely a 2 percent lead over Stacy Abrams, an African American woman.

          Ким Чен Ун - най-накрая Бог       Cache   Translate Page      

В Северна Корея бе представен първият официален портрет на Ким Чен Ун: 

Огромната картина бе показана на срещата на Ким с кубинския президент Мигел-Диаз Канел.

"Фактът, че портрет на Ким Чен Ун бе представен по такъв начин е явен намек, че режимът прави първите крачки към религиозното възвеличаване на Ким Чен-ун", заяви Оливър Хотам, анализатор за "NK News". 

Картината до такава степен напомня стилизацията на портретите на Ким Чен Ир и Ким Ир Сен, че "севернокорейците със сигурност ще разберат символизма на това решение".

Портрети на бащата и дядото на Ким Чен Ун са окачени във всяка една сграда на страната. 

Ким Чен Ун стъпи на власт през 2011 г. и винаги бе възприеман по-скоро като наследник, от колкото като нов духовен лидер на страната си. С този жест, тази второстепенна роля най-вероятно ще остане в миналото. Поне в очите на севернокорейците.

Докато баща му бе ангажиран основно с въоръжаването Ким Чен Ун налага двояка политическа стратегия - разработването на атомно оръжие и развитието на икономиката.

"Всичко, което се случи през 2018 г. подпомогна изграждането на образа му", заяви Хотам. "Осем официални срещи с чуждестранни държавни лидери оказаха невероятна наслада за пропагандистите на Пхенян - помогнаха им да представят лидера на страната като международно уважаван държавник - от ранга на Доналд Тръмп и Си Дзинпин", добави той.

Засега портретът е бил показван единствено по държавната телевизия, но най-вероятно ще бъде изваждан на следващите официални посещения на държавни лидери.

          SpaceX is launching more than 70 satellites at once — and a few will hunt down smugglers, pirates, and other 'dark ships'      Cache   Translate Page      

pathfinder micro satellite cluster radio frequency rf emissions orbiting earth illustration hawkeye 360

  • The next rocket mission for SpaceX, called SSO-A, will launch 71 small satellites into orbit at once.
  • Three satellites belong to HawkEye 360, a startup that aims to "see" radio-wave emissions all over Earth.
  • HawkEye 360's software will identify each unique radio signal and use it to track "dark vessels" that may be trying to hide illegal activities.
  • The company hopes its system will help curb $3 trillion' worth of illegal fishing, smuggling, drug trafficking, and piracy each year.

SpaceX hopes to fire off its next Falcon 9 rocket mission on November 19. If the launch goes well, Elon Musk's aerospace company may not only break spaceflight records, but also help fight nefarious behavior on the open ocean.

The goal of SpaceX's upcoming mission, called SSO-A, is to put 71 satellites into orbit all at once. A company called Spaceflight Industries organized the mission, and it claims this is the largest-ever rideshare mission in US history, as spacecraft from 35 different companies and organizations will fly aboard the rocket.

However, three microwave-oven-size spacecraft on the mission — a cluster called Pathfinder — are particularly worth noting.

sso a spacex cubesat micro satellite deployment orbit earth spaceflight industriesThe trio of spacecraft belong to a startup called HawkEye 360, and they're designed to "see" radio signals from space. The company's software will take unique radio signals coming from ships to "fingerprint" vessels, track them over time, and even forecast future movements.

If Pathfinder works, authorities around the world could gain a major leg-up in hunting "dark ships": vessels that turn off GPS location transponders, often to hide their whereabouts and engage in illicit activity.

Such activity includes illegal fishing, smuggling, drug trafficking, and piracy, and it amounts to roughly $3 trillion each year, says John Serafini, the CEO of HawkEye 360.

"We care about the folks that are not doing the right thing. We care about the vessels that don't want to be found," Serafini told Business Insider. "We're focused on detecting those and stopping them."

Hunting 'dark ships' with radio waves

HawkEye 360 claims it's unique not only for its radio-signal-detecting technology, but also artificial-intelligence-powered software the startup has developed to process data.

"You couldn't have started this company 10 years ago," Serafini said. "The costs were too high and the technology wasn't there."

He added that HawkEye 360 exists today because of the increasing miniaturization of electronics, SpaceX's lower-cost rocket launches, and advancements in machine learning.

Pathfinder, like the other satellites SpaceX is launching, will sweep around Earth from pole-to-pole in what's called a sun-synchronous orbit — hence the "SSO" in the mission's name. (The "A" signifies that it's the first of multiple rideshare missions.) This orbit keeps sunlight drenching a spacecraft's solar panels while allowing it to fly over every square inch of the planet.

The antennas of Pathfinder can detect a wide range of radio signals above about 1 watt in power. ("Cell phones are well below a watt in power," Serafini said. "We don't have the ability or the focus to do that.")

This means the cluster can triangulate normally hard-to-pinpoint signals from satellite phones, push-to-talk radios, and marine radar. Ships need these and other radio-emitting tools to navigate the seas, the thinking goes.

This is especially true for "dark ships," since those vessels turn off a mandatory device called an automatic identification system, or AIS. The AIS broadcasts a ship's GPS location to avoid collisions, but turning it off is a common trick vessels use if they're slipping into unapproved fishing zones or trafficking illegal drugs, wares, or people.

Serafini said that may soon cease to be an effective way to avoid getting noticed.

"If you're turning on and off the AIS, we're going to track your other emitters. If you try to turn them all off, you're effectively negating your operation. You need to use them to navigate and communicate," Serafini said. "If you do that, we've won. You can't be effective."

How Pathfinder works

pathfinder micro satellite cluster radio frequency rf emissions hardware hawkeye 360

The Pathfinder system relies on the fact that every radio transponder on Earth is built differently, even if it's made by the same person in the same factory. Minor variations in parts and assembly lead to subtle differences in radio emissions that HawkEye 360 says it can detect and exploit.

More importantly, by tracking a mix of radio emissions on a ship and pairing those with AIS signals (when the devices are turned on), the company can "fingerprint" every ocean vessel on Earth. That way, even if a ship is "spoofing" its AIS data, the company says it will know; AIS data will report one location, but the vessel's radio fingerprint will reveal its true location.

HawkEye 360 says it has already proved that its system works by equipping three Cessna jet airplanes with Pathfinder technology, flying them over the Chesapeake Bay, and detecting ships that were spoofing their AIS data.

"We were able to not only detect the AIS spoofing but also geolocate the ships using their other radio signals," Chris DeMay, the founder and CTO of HawkEye 360, told Business Insider. "We were able to map where the ship actually was and compare that to where the ship said it was."

In addition to fingerprinting such vessels, HawkEye 360's machine-learning algorithms will also be able to determine typical activity patterns for a ship and flag any unusual deviation.

Over time, the company says, it could even forecast the future locations of individual vessels based on their past behavior.

"Because we'll be the first ones to do this, we'll be the first ones to bring it to the commercial market," Serafini said.

The future of tracking radio signals from above

The Pathfinder satellite cluster will give HawkEye 360 a global view of certain radio transmissions on Earth once every four to six hours. But DeMay and Serafini say that's just the beginning.

According to them, HawkEye 360 is backed by about $30 million in funding (enough to operate for 18 months), has 31 employees, and has secured $100 million in contracts. In the future, they aim to launch six more three-satellite clusters, which will create a constellation that can map Earth's radio signals once every 30 to 40 minutes.

Launching larger and more capable satellite will also improve the company's ability to detect weaker signals.

"Trucks use radio emitters that we could detect and track," Serafini said. "If a truck is known to have a history of illegal border crossing, we might want to track that particular object."

The company expects the US military to be increasingly interested in the technology, especially considering that HawkEye 360 can deploy its sensors on airplanes and high-altitude balloons (in addition to satellites). That feature could allow for real-time tracking of drones and weak signals on a battlefield.

Another planned use of Pathfinder is more down-to-Earth: the technology could detect improper use of the radio-frequency spectrum, including interference between cell-phone towers. Such interference can cause data loss between mobile devices and towers, leading to slow and unreliable internet, among other problems.

Ground crews with trucks typically drive around towers to search for and identify such problems, but such teams and equipment can expensive to deploy, especially on a nationwide scale.

"It's like that Verizon 'Can you hear me now?' guy, but in space," DeMay said — and possibly a lot cheaper and more effective.

          Trump says he's 'in no rush' after NKorea talks postponed      Cache   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump said Wednesday the U.S. is "in no rush" after talks between his top diplomat and a senior North Korean envoy were postponed, throwing stalled diplomacy over the North's nuclear weapons into further uncertainty.

Trump said the meeting, which had been due to take place ...

          SO! What Should Democrats Investigate First????      Cache   Translate Page      


Now that Democrats have taken over the House of Representatives -- or will, come January -- they'll be able to remind the Trump administration that "oversight" isn't just a noun wedged between "inexcusable" and "by compliant Republicans." That's going to be a bit of a change from the first two years of this "presidency," when House committees mostly did everything they could to help Trump cover up and deflect attention from his shady behavior, not to mention taking a wrecking ball to consumer protections and regulations on industry. Now that there'll be a whole new crop of committee chairs with subpoena power, let's look at the wish list for the top investigations they should get on right away.


Russia, duh.

Donald Trump was very certain he'd been completely cleared by the House Intelligence Committee's investigation of contacts between his campaign and Russia, because after all, the investigation didn't bother looking too closely. Now that Adam Schiff will be chairing the committee, expect a closer look, including subpoenas of all those jerks who refused to answer questions the first time around. The main job of investigating Trump-Russia remains Robert Mueller's, of course, but the House will finally be digging into stuff that Devin Nunes for some reason had no interest in examining.

While they're at it, Dems on both Intel and Foreign Affairs will probably want to look at what actually went on during Trump's Helsinki meeting with Putin -- at the very least, maybe we can finally find out whether anyone in Trump's administration was ever briefed on what they talked about.

Other foreign stuff up for investigation? Schiff wants to look at the North Korea "nuclear deal," like maybe seeing if there even is such a thing. And yes, how about a close look at whether our great friends the Saudis may have told Trump what to think about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi?

Hey, how about looking into that Trump Tower computer that kept talking to that Russian bank, too? Seems like a loose end somebody should tie up.

Donald Trump's Taxes Remain Nobody's Business, OK?

Get ready for a demand for Trump to turn over his tax returns, which is a power Congress has but decided not to bother with the past two years. Dems are ready to be a bit more oversighty this time around, so get ready for Trump to get even pissier and to insist it's a "disgrace" even more than ever.

Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), the presumptive Ways and Means Committee chairman, has said he intends to obtain them once in power, using a 1924 law that gives heads of the congressional tax-writing committees the right to request any person's tax returns. The panel could then make them public with a simple majority vote.

Trump and other conservatives have suggested that the White House might fight any effort by Democrats to obtain the tax returns, setting up a possible constitutional challenge that tests a nearly 94-year-old law.

Expect Trump to be an asshole about that. In his insane presser this morning, he insisted, for the first time in quite a while, that he can't possibly show anyone his taxes, because would you believe they're STILL being audited?

Other inquiries into Trump's sleazy business operations are likely to come from the presumptive chair of the House Financial Services Committee, Maxine Waters.

Waters has requested — and as the committee head could subpoena — records that could dislodge closely held details of Deutsche Bank's relationship with the Trump Organization.

The German bank lent Trump more than $400 million during a decade-long real estate buying spree that began in 2005, largely through its private wealth management office, not the commercial banking division that typically handles real estate.

Maybe Government Agencies Should Do Their Jobs?

The committees with oversight power for cabinet agencies are likely to be very, very busy, too, insisting the EPA should at least occasionally protect the environment, that our immigration laws can be enforced without throwing children in cages, and that thousands of US citizens shouldn't be poisoned by lead or left to die after a hurricane, even if they're on an island surrounded by big water:

[Incoming House Oversight Committee] chairman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) already plans to look into the "zero tolerance" policy that caused the detention of thousands of migrant children who were separated from their families while trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border, and the administration's intention to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census.

The panel is also planning a broad investigation of the White House's security clearance process, after Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and former staff secretary Rob Porter were revealed to be working without full clearances.

The panel wants to balance those inquiries with renewed attention to the administration's widely criticized response to Puerto Rico in the aftermath Hurricane Maria, and the continuing water crisis in Flint, Mich.

Already, some Democrats are fretting that if the House does too much investigating, that could backfire by making Trump look like he's being victimized, the poor dear. That's a concern which seems never to have occurred to the Republicans who investigated Benghazi again and again, although of course that was different, because as we all know, Hillary Clinton was a very untrustworthy person.

In any case, Donald Trump has the proper relationship between the branches of government all worked out. He explained it's really very simple. If Democrats investigate him, he'll just investigate them harder, and also maybe he won't let any legislation pass for the rest of his term:

Gosh, he's a smart cookie. He'll really teach them!

          Trump's Press conference Q&A: I will 'probably' meet NK leader early next year/ China 2025 is NOT happening, we will do a trade deal      Cache   Translate Page      

US President Donald J Trump is holding a press conference and is now taking questions from the press following the outcome of the Mid-Term Congressional Elections whereby the Democrats have taken the House of Representatives and the Republicans have kept their majority in the Senate. The immediate reaction in the markets was to sell the dollar which is now making a slight bullish correction - now down just -0.28% into the Presser, 0.10% higher than where we were going into the Presser.

However, in general, the impact on markets has been relatively modest as the outcome was widely expected. Stocks are now at the highs of the day into the presser. S&P +1.59%, NASDAQ +2.15% and DJIA +1.45%. (US Stocks are still making a comeback with a sigh of relief as these midterm elections results will not lead to the removal of President Trump through impeachment & conviction as markets had been concerned for).

Press Statement
Heather Nauert
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
November 7, 2018


Yesterday, during bilateral meetings in Washington, D.C., Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan and the Sudanese Foreign Minister Dirdeiry Mohamed Ahmed discussed the launch of the “Phase II” framework for our bilateral engagement. Phase II is designed to expand our bilateral cooperation, facilitate meaningful reforms to enhance stability in Sudan, and achieve further progress in a number of areas of longstanding concern. The United States welcomes Sudan’s commitment to making progress in key areas. Those key areas include expanding counterterrorism cooperation, enhancing human rights protections and practices, including freedoms of religion and press, improving humanitarian access, ceasing internal hostilities and creating a more conducive environment for progress in Sudan’s peace process, taking steps to address certain outstanding terrorism-related claims, and adhering to UN Security Council resolutions related to North Korea. As part of this process, the United States is prepared to initiate the process of rescinding Sudan’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism if the determination is made that all of the relevant statutory criteria have been met, and if Sudan makes progress in addressing each of the six key areas of mutual concern prioritized by the Phase II framework. The United States is ready to cooperate with Sudan and to monitor progress as we seek meaningful developments for the benefit of the Sudanese people and the region.
