In ten parts, all banned by YouTube and its Zionist master the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). BitChute is clearly emergent as the trusted source for truthful videos in the 21st Century.
Looking at the below simplified depiction of the One Belt One Road Initiative, I have to ask myself:
1. Has Australia lost its mind and given up on being a force for peace and prosperity in the South Pacific and southern Asia toward India, Iran, and East Africa?
2. Has Brazil not realized that it could become the colossus of South America and also the bridge to West Africa?
3. Is the USA going to continue to abuse or ignore South America at the same time that it neglects the undeveloped Canadian frontier and the Arctic?
I have the impression Russia is planning to own the Arctic and may perhaps be making peace with China in terms of developing the vast Russian eastern lands. Net net: USA does not have a serious grand strategy for anything.

Robert-Jan Smits, the European Union’s departing director-general of research, sets out his parting thoughts.
I am sorry that I couldn’t find a way to get all member states to invest more in science.
I also regret not having been able to embed science and innovation in EU agricultural policy, which is very conservative and hard to penetrate.
…we plan a European Innovation Council to support highly innovative companies, particularly start-ups.
I managed to persuade Eurostat, the EU’s statistical office, to classify R&D as investment rather than expenditure. This was a small but important psychological breakthrough that helped change mindsets.

Nearly half of all federal research and development dollars go to the Department of Defense, a new report from the Congressional Research Service observes. The Pentagon research budget is more than twice that of the next largest recipient, the Department of Health and Human Services.
The structure of the DoD research budget, which has “its own unique taxonomy,” is described in the new CRS report. See Department of Defense Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E): Appropriations Structure, December 13, 2016:
The Obama Administration is being duplicitous at the last minute before the Electoral College meets on 19 December 2016, the CIA is lying, the “intelligence” is being fabricated, and both the New York Times and the Washington Post are now joining CNN (the Crap News Network) as purveyors of “fake news.” The Huffington Post, which appended the most offensive erroneous statement slandering President-Elect Trump to every article, is beneath contempt — hardly worth a mention, but noteworthy for being the bottom of the media cesspool.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Disparate Data Challenge encourages participants to offer solutions that can demonstrate effective capabilities that enable access to data that is wildly disparate in its formats, schemas, interfaces and locations, so that it may be available for search, business metrics and data and information analytics.
Here is our submittal to NGA that was selected within Stage 1 of the competition.
