MEMORANDUM FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

20 June 2019

Subject: Near-Term Potential for Collapse of US Food Supply Chain

1. Background. America imports 50% of their food. Of the other 50% we produce ourselves, 80% is grown in the mid-west and 20% of that is grown in California severely regionalizing it. The average unit of food travels 1,500 miles and is delivered by a sophisticated Just in Time (JIT) delivery system. If the JIT system is shut down then food delivery stops and the vast amount of Americans cannot get to it. The average household may have 1 week of food. The average supermarket may have 1 week of food. Therefore if the JIT delivery system collapses the country runs out of many forms of delivered food in only 2 to 3 weeks.

America’s Demise In One Simple Chart – The Path To A FIRE Economy

Via Global Macro Monitor,

We originally posted this chart in February 2011, which we just updated also breaking out the real estate industry from FIRE (finance, insurance, and real estate).   It is still just as shocking as it was back when we first produced it.

Story and two valuable graphics below the fold.

Identity crisis: FBI plays catch-up as cyberthreats escalate

Now “every field office has a cyber squad” modeled after lessons learned fighting terrorism, said Ugoretz, speaking earlier this year at a conference in Sea Island, Ga. Some field offices are being assigned as leads for specific attacks or threat actors, she said. There is also a rapid response team that can be deployed out of headquarters in Washington at a moment’s notice.

Yet even as the FBI’s need for cyber experts is increasing, its ability to retain agents and employees with the needed technical expertise is under threat. According to interviews with over a dozen former FBI cyber employees as well as other national security experts, a cyber “brain drain” is taking place at the bureau that could hamper its ability to stem the constant flow of digital threats,

NASA Defrauded By Metals Company Blamed For $700 Million In Losses And Two Failed Launches

An Oregon-based metals manufacturer faked test results and provided faulty materials to NASA, which the agency says caused over $700 million in losses and two failed satellite launches, according to the results of an internal investigation.

Phi Beta Iota: What this really means is that NASA does not give a shit about quality control and has no serious holistic analytics and true cost economics oversight plan.  Welcome to the fraud that is called the US Government.

Robert Steele: President Trump’s Failed Communications — And Alex Jones Has a Point “Stop Social Media Censorship or Lose 2020”

Brad Parscale and Bill Shine don’t know what they don’t know.  Parscale is tripling down on micro-approaches to small donors within the base and its edges while neglecting everyone else because the Trump campaign simply does not have credibility or channels for blacks, suburban women, Latinos, or Independents as well as Libertarians, Constitution Party, and others.  Bill Shine really thinks a state-run TV channel will make a difference, it will not, it will be ignored by the 73% that did not vote for the President.

And now Alex comes in with what I have been saying ever since I coined the term #GoogleGestapo: we need to RICO stomp Facebook, Google, MeetUp, Twitter, YouTube, and others like PayPal that are deplatforming conservative and progressive voices that challenge the Israel First narrative, among other false canards of the Deep State.

Alex Jones’ Message to Trump: Stop Social Media Censorship or Lose 2020

The President is simply not serious about broadening the base! My four page Memorandum for the President: Trump Triumph, remains REF A — and opposed by the people holding the President back, including Jared Kushner and John Bolton both of whom are secretly working against the President.

What’s the implication?

Forget Go to My PC vulnerabilities. Old news. The bad actors may have the opportunity to derail certain industrial and manufacturing processes. What happens when a chemical plant gets the wrong instructions.

Remember the Port of Texas City mishap? A tragic failure. Accidental.

But Citrix style breaches combined with “we did not know” may presage intentional actions in the future.

Yep, cloudy with a chance of pain.

YouTube loses advertisers over “wormhole into pedophilia ring”

Epic Games and Disney pull ads over pedophiles’ comments on videos of children.

“Videos of children showing their exposed buttocks, underwear and genitals are racking up millions of views on YouTube—with the site displaying advertising from major cosmetics and car brands alongside the content,” Wired UK wrote. “Comments beneath scores of videos appear to show pedophiles sharing timestamps for parts of the videos where exposed genitals can be seen, or when a child does the splits or lifts up their top to show their nipples… The videos are also being monetized by YouTube, including pre-roll adverts from Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Fortnite, Grammarly, L’Oreal, Maybelline, Metro: Exodus, Peloton and SingleMuslims.com. Banner advertising for Google and the World Business Forum also appeared alongside some of the videos.”
