US troops left northern Syria in a hurry in the past 24 or so hours, but Beltway warnings of a "power vacuum" that will allow ISIS to take over have been proven wrong. With the US out of the picture, the Kurds are not facing genocide, but instead have made a deal with Assad to reintegrate into the Syrian army and resist the Turkish incursion. Meanwhile, the Russians are said to be patrolling the no-man's land between Syrian and Turkish forces while working on a peace agreement. Getting out of stupid wars has once again proven to be a huge benefit to the US, not a disaster!

The left has repeatedly shown violence against Trump - Kathy Griffin beheaded him, actors murdered him on a stage, and much more. And leftist have committed actual violence against Trump supporters, but when the right pushes a joke video showing Trump using violence against them, they go berzerk with triggered rage! What a bunch of disgusting hypocrites!

Why are the Democrats' witnesses for the prosecution (the "whistleblowers") allowed to remain anonymous and avoid cross-examination? Pelosi was roped into proceeding with impeachment of President Trump against her political judgement and now she is beginning to pay the price as the case against Trump continues to unravel. She still has the media on her side, but how long will that last, as new Ukraine facts about Biden and the non-blackmail of Zelensky continue to seep out?

No sooner did President Trump Tweet his determination to remove US troops from the "endless" war in Syria than the entire Washington Beltway had a total breakdown. From Mitch McConnell to Ilhan Omar the cry was identical: "How dare you! How dare you bring US troops home!" Will the President cave in to his enemies in Washington and the media? Or will he keep his promises and fulfill the wishes of a majority of Republicans?

Encryption, other privacy measures, and decentralization have made the protest movement possible.

------------------

A major priority of the protest movement that has consumed Hong Kong for the past three and a half months has been to thwart the surveillance apparatus that's virtually everywhere. Demonstrators have felled camera poles with chainsaws, spray-painted security camera lenses, used green lasers to destroy sensors, and shielded themselves with umbrellas while marching through the streets.

"I think there a growing concern [in Hong Kong] about surveillance, and this [is] totally understandable because there's a total lack of trust in the government with this whole saga over the last several months," says Charles Mok, a legislator representing the city's technology sector.

Though Hong Kong is politically autonomous under the "one country, two systems" model, local authorities have wired up the city, enabling them to keep an eye on every corner of public life—and protesters suspect they may be sharing that information with the Chinese government.

Hong Kong officials deny that cameras on the top of the city's so-called Smart Lampposts feed location or facial recognition data to Beijing, but that may be a lie. Activists with the political organization Demosisto analyzed the internal components of one of these cameras and found an ethernet switch that could conceivably connect to the mainland's surveillance network. They also found components inside that were manufactured by a known supplier of surveillance technology to the Chinese government.

Many demonstrators use virtual private networks, or VPNs, to access the internet, and they communicate through Telegram, which fully encrypts their messages.

"Without safe communication, I don't think this revolution [could] last for that long," says Wincent Hung, founder of Genesis Block, a Hong Kong–based cryptocurrency exchange. "The government [could] track down everybody very, very easily if there [were] no encryption in this revolution."

Demonstrators are also refraining from using their credit cards or the digital payments system Octopus, which is an option in Hong Kong's public transit system and most stores.

"People are quite wary about cybersecurity and their digital footprints," says Amon Liu, an activist with Demosisto. "All their personal information [have been used] for past prosecutions by the police. So that's why they use cash this time."

To discuss strategy, demonstrators use LIHKG, a social media site that allows anonymous posting and is known as the Reddit of Hong Kong.

They've also created decentralized networks for sharing information through AirDrop, a function on the iPhone that transfers data directly to another person via Bluetooth without a third-party intermediary.

"This is a movement that is totally leaderless and decentralized," says Denise Ho, a Hong Kong–based singer and pro-democracy activist. "[Youth activists] have used…the tools on the Internet to really find a newer way to organize this sort of movement and to really sustain it in the longer term."

The protest movement's unofficial motto is "be water," a Bruce Lee phrase that's meant to convey that in battle, a more fluid and malleable adversary is harder to stop.

A major factor motivating the protesters in their fight to maintain autonomy from mainland China is the surveillance apparatus that the Beijing government imposes on its own citizens. Under the "social credit system," for example, individuals are rated for good behavior and a bad score can impede their ability to travel, attend the best schools, or get hired for the best jobs.

The Hong Kong government has stopped answering protesters' demands, and the conflict grew more acrimonious on October 1, after a police officer shot and injured an 18-year-old demonstrator who had attempted to hit him with a rod. Last week, the government announced a ban on wearing face masks in the streets.

"It has escalated to a point where people are realizing what we need is a political reform in the whole Hong Kong legislative system," says Ho. "And also, of course, the communist government is not backing down either. So we are preparing ourselves for an even longer fight."

"Americans use firearms to defend themselves between 500,000 and two million times every year. God forbid that my mother is ever faced with a scenario where she has to stop a threat to her life. But if she is, I hope politicians protected by professional armed security didn't strip her of the right to use the firearm she can handle most competently." – Amy Swearer

It’s crazy how many former spooks have been hired at corporate news outlets like CNN & MSNBC as “analysts”. After spending their careers serving the national security state, they get to shape the news under the guise of expertise. It’s like state TV

WATCH: Joe Biden explodes when a reporter asks a very simple question:

"How was your role as Vice President in charge of policy in Ukraine and your son's job in Ukraine, how is that not a conflict of interest?"

Biden: "I'm not going to respond to that!"

What is he hiding?

I had a couple friends over at my place. While I was out smoking a cigarette I thought I heard some knocking but wasn’t expecting anyone so didn’t think much of it. The knocking turned into a couple bangs, I look out the peep hole and saw a guy with a mask and his lil friend behind him. I locked the door thinking they’ll hear it know someone’s there and leave but they didn’t. So I went and grabbed my rifle. Extremely thankful I got to the door when I did. VERY glad I had it. Never get to comfortable thinking nothing can happen, stay safe out here how ever you see fit.
I did not pull the trigger at all I’m guessing those noises are the door hitting the wall or the camera switching modes.

Here’s my interview with active self protection it will answer some questions you may have

Iraq has formally accused Israel of the spate of attacks on its territory over the past several weeks. Most recently, Israeli drones are said to have taken off from a US-controlled base in the Kurdish region of Syria and attacked Iraqi territory. Again. Iraq is warning of war while the US again pursues an incoherent and counterproductive policy. Will the US continue to back Israeli aggression in the region?
