France Seizes Weapons in Crackdown as Islamic State Warns of More Attacks (jdargis)

The identifications provide new clues to investigators trying to establish how three teams of gunmen and suicide bombers could create carnage in one of Europe’s most heavily policed cities. Its effects are reverberating worldwide, with Europeans questioning their open borders, leaders of the Group of 20 nations pledging to step up anti-terror efforts, and some U.S. senators calling for a wider military campaign in Iraq and Syria.

The Prime Minister will also say that the budget for security at foreign airports should double £18 million a year after a Russian passenger plane was apparently destroyed by a bomb earlier this month.

Mr Cameron said: "Our intelligence agencies work round the clock behind the scenes and as the threat has grown so they too have risen to the challenge.

U.S. Warplanes Strike ISIS Oil Trucks in Syria (jdargis)

Until Monday, the United States had refrained from striking the fleet used to transport oil, believed to include more than 1,000 tanker trucks, because of concerns about causing civilian casualties. As a result, the Islamic State’s distribution system for exporting oil had remained largely intact.

What a year of Islamic State terror looks like (jdargis)

The Islamic State has grown beyond its original home in Syria and Iraq, extending its operations into other parts of the Middle East and North Africa by establishing alliances and absorbing other terrorist groups. Data from IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center reveals how the group has claimed responsibility for carrying out attacks across the region. The map below reflects a year of Islamic State attacks following the capture of Mosul, one of Iraq's most important cities. Since then, the militant group has carried out many attacks including a suicide bombing Abha, Saudi Arabia, a beheading in Egypt, and most recently, the attacks in Paris that killed more than 130 people.

How To Survive A Terror Attack (Michael W.)

Strictly from a survival point of view, it doesn’t matter at all who committed the acts of terror that occurred on 9/11, on the streets of Boston, or on the other evening in Paris. It doesn’t matter whether the shooting at Sandy Hook was perpetrated by a kid with behavioral issues or by operatives with an agenda.

If your focus is preparedness and survival, the most important thing you can be doing right now is learning from these events.

New analysis finds routes to economic growth with carbon limits (jdargis)

These analyses provide critical insights into the relationship between economic growth and environmental sustainability. The authors find that decoupling economic growth from environmental pressure won’t happen before 2050 if existing trends hold. The two can be decoupled—but it requires national policy choices in favor of greenhouse gas abatement efforts.

Oil Theft Soars as Downturn Casts U.S. Roughnecks Out of Work (jdargis)

In Texas, unemployment insurance claims from energy workers more than doubled over the past year to about 110,000, according to the Workforce Commission. In North Dakota, average weekly wages in the Bakken oil patch decreased nearly 10 percent in the first quarter of 2015, compared with the previous quarter, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

A Conservative Alternative to Obama's Climate Plan (jdargis)

In the face of overwhelming scientific consensus, today’s Republican leaders either deny climate science outright or insist that any solution, as Marco Rubio recently claimed, “would have a devastating impact on our economy.” This has relegated the GOP to playing defense at the moment that President Obama is turning climate mitigation into a central pillar of his legacy and heading to Paris to broker a global climate agreement. Republicans have backed themselves into a losing climate position that not only reflects poor science, poor economics, and poor strategy, but also betrays enduring conservative principles.

False Flags

Washington and its French vassal have refined how they conduct their false flag operations. With the Charlie Hebdo operation, they knew to immediately set the story in stone in order to avoid any questions from the print and TV media and in order to use the set story to take the place of an investigation.

And it's consequences.

Teresa May, British cabinet puppet,

Home Secretary Theresa May indicated the British death toll in the Paris attacks may rise as she said the government has concerns about a "handful" of UK citizens. She said that British police and intelligence agencies were "working day and night to keep people secure".

"Concerns" Naaah, more like disappointed that she has potentially lost some tax slaves and indoctrinated voting sheep!

I have absolute contempt for these hypocritical parasites!
