"It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners... is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? ... Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence... would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy." -- President Andrew Jackson

What is DNS? When you type a site name, it is meaningless to a computer. Your computer sends the site's name to a DNS server and the DNS server then tells your computer what IP address the site is at, and your computer then accesses that IP address. Having the IP address work correctly has to be set up on purpose. Normally you cannot just hit a site's IP and have it load. This site is an exception. This site's IP address is and when you hit only that number, it still loads the most current page.

Blacklisted by U.S., Xiaomi says it's not a 'Communist Chinese military company'

With mere days left in office, the Trump administration has added another Chinese smartphone maker to its list of blacklisted companies.

On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Defense added Xiaomi to the list of “Communist Chinese military companies operating directly or indirectly in the United States."

"The Department is determined to highlight and counter the People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) Military-Civil Fusion development strategy, which supports the modernization goals of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) by ensuring its access to advanced technologies and expertise acquired and developed by even those PRC companies, universities, and research programs that appear to be civilian entities," the statement from the DoD reads.

Fact check: Trump loses several perks only with impeachment conviction by Jan. 20

The claim: If President Trump is impeached again, he loses many post-presidency perks
On Jan. 13, President Donald J. Trump became the only U.S. president to be impeached twice. But even before that, Americans took to social media to deliberate what this could mean for Trump after he leaves office on Jan. 20.

“For those wondering if it’s worth impeaching him this time, it means he: 1) loses his 200k+ pension for the rest of his life, 2) loses his 1 million dollar/year travel allowance, 3) loses lifetime full secret service detail, 4) loses his ability to run in 2024,” Ben Costiloe wrote in a Jan. 8 tweet. USA TODAY reached out to him for comment. The tweet has since been deleted.

Homeschooling in cold, dark Britain? It's Dubai to all that! Brace yourself for the unashamed mother who's just found a (legal) way to quit Sussex... and gets an A-star for smugness

Like every other mother during this awful lockdown, I wake each morning and my first thought is one of sinking dread.

Dread at yet another day trying to drag a truculent 11-year-old through home-schooling; dread of boredom — my own — and that of my older children prowling the house like restless, bad-tempered lions in captivity; and the dread of doing exactly what I did yesterday and the day before that.

Blaming “Lower Interest Rates,” Northern Trust, the #3 Trust Bank, Quietly Laid Off 500 People Last Week. #2 BNY Mellon Quietly Followed This Week

Northern Trust Corporation’s promise early in the Pandemic to abstain from layoffs in 2020 expired on January 1, and last week, the layoffs happened. There was no announcement of the layoffs, and as of this moment, there still hasn’t been a public announcement, but on January 7, two days after people started reporting that they’d been laid off, or that some of their colleagues had been laid off, Chairman and CEO Mike O’Grady sent an email to the remaining employees about the layoffs, the “majority” of which had been “completed earlier this week” he said – meaning January 4th through 6th.

Mike O’Grady said in the email, which WOLF STREET has reviewed, that the bank made “the extremely difficult decision” to lay off 500 people, or “about 2.5% of our partners.”

“To create value now, and in the future, we must adapt and improve,” O’Grady wrote.

53 Jewish groups lobby Biden to adopt Israel-centric definition of antisemitism

Jewish Insider reports today: “Jewish groups lobby Biden on IHRA’s working definition of antisemitism.” The IHRA definition is a non-traditional definition promoted by Israel partisans in which many negative factual statements about Israel are considered “antisemitic.”

The definition is based on a formulation proposed by an Israeli official in 2004 that has been promoted world wide.

The letter, sent to President-elect Joe Biden by the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations on January 12th, calls on “all federal departments and agencies” to use the definition.

The letter is signed by Conference of Presidents officials on behalf of its members and by the heads of the Jewish Federations of North America, the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, and the Orthodox Union. The Presidents’ Conference consists of 53 Jewish organizations.

NASA Insight's 'Mole' bites the dust: Mars digger is declared dead after failing to burrow deep enough into the Red Planet to take its temperature after two years

NASA has declared the 'Mole' on its InSight lander dead after just two years of operations.

The 16-inch heat probe was designed to drill 16 feet into the Martian crust and take its temperature, but despite the best efforts of scientists in Germany, it it could not gain enough friction in the red dirt.

Following one last unsuccessful attempt to hammer itself down into the soil over the weekend - a process involving 500 strokes - the team called it quits.

'We've given it everything we've got, but Mars and our heroic mole remain incompatible,' said the German Space Agency's Tilman Spohn

BLM activist who told CNN he entered the Capitol simply to document the siege is arrested after video footage reveals he shouted 'it's our house' and 'we got to get this s**t burned'

A left-wing activist who told CNN he went inside the Capitol Building during last Wednesday's siege merely to document the chaos has now been arrested by police.

Jan 15 08:46


What happened last week at the Capitol Building? There is still a huge cloud over what exactly happened, who actually instigated it all, etc. Do people really know and have answers? Does the media? The media is continously broadcasting the message that what we witnessed is nothing less than an “insurrection” and “coup” led and instigated by the President, and they are delegitimizing every person who supports the President and still voices concern over election integrity. What really happened?

Below is newly released footage that shows a totally different picture than what is being broadcast by the media. Even the police officer says “I don’t agree with this”. Listen to the video. Who did he say that to? Who gave him the order to open the doors and let people just walk in? Yes, someone gave him the order to open the doors. Does that fit the narrative of a violent insurrection of the media?

Pelosi's New Congress Has Impeached Trump And Now Doing This Thing Of No Use To Americans

A group of House Democrats introduced a resolution to amend the Constitution to abolish the Electoral College and institute a direct national popular vote for president and vice president.

“Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to abolish the electoral college and to provide for the direct election of the President and Vice President of the United States,” reads the text of House Joint Resolution 14.

The effort, led by Rep. Steve Cohen, a Democrat from Tennessee, alleges that the “development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world.”

Biden Inaugural: National Guard Troops Authorized to Use Lethal Force as D.C. Turns Into Police State

National Guard troops deployed in Washington, D.C. for the Biden inaugural in the wake of the storming of the Capitol last week have been authorized to use lethal force, according to a report by U.S. News that cited a Defense Department official. The D.C. National Guard had issued a statement Wednesday that troops under its command had been authorized to carry weapons.

A reported 20,000 troops are being deployed in the nation’s capital. Checkpoints have been established. Razor wire topped fencing has been erected around the Capitol and Supreme Court, large swaths of official Washington have been blocked to vehicular traffic. Many Metro stations in downtown D.C. are completely closed. The Washington Monument is closed and the National Mall is set to be closed. Airbnb cancelled all reservations in the D.C. area for the period of the inauguration. Hotels are being pressured to do the same. The message to Americans is stay away from D.C.

Who is Victoria Nuland? Most Americans have never heard of her because the U.S. corporate media’s foreign policy coverage is a wasteland. Most Americans have no idea that President-elect Biden’s pick for Deputy Secretary of State for Political Affairs is stuck in the quicksand of 1950s U.S.-Russia Cold War politics and dreams of continued NATO expansion, an arms race on steroids and further encirclement of Russia.

Nor do they know that from 2003-2005, during the hostile U.S. military occupation of Iraq, Nuland was a foreign policy advisor to Dick Cheney, the Darth Vader of the Bush administration.

Government Is not Owned and Controlled by the People, People Are Owned and Controlled by Government

Other than self-government such as peaceful anarchy or voluntarism, government in every circumstance is structured to manage and control the people by force. This is regardless of what particular type of governing system exists; whether a democracy, a constitutional republic, an oligarchy, or confederacy; whether it may be socialistic, communistic, fascist, or a monarchy. These and any other of the many forms of governance are all based on power and control over the masses. This has always been, and the people themselves have not only allowed this to happen, but have purposely structured these systems of rule.

Israel is losing the fight to obscure its apartheid character

For more than a decade, a handful of former Israeli politicians and US diplomats identified with what might be termed the "peace process industry" have intermittently warned that, without a two-state solution, Israel is in danger of becoming an “apartheid state”.

The most notable among them include Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, two former Israeli prime ministers, and John Kerry, who served as former US President Barack Obama’s secretary of state. Time is rapidly running out, they have all declared in the past.

Their chief concern, it seems, was that without the alibi of some kind of Palestinian state - however circumscribed and feeble - the legitimacy of Israel as a “Jewish and democratic state” will increasingly come under scrutiny. Apartheid will arrive, the argument goes, when a minority of Israeli Jews rule over a majority of Palestinians in the area between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan controlled by Israel.

Norwegian officials said 23 people had died in the country a short time after receiving their first dose of the vaccine. Of those deaths, 13 have so far been autopsied, with the results suggesting that common side effects may have contributed to severe reactions in frail, elderly people, according to the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

Consent-Manufacturing For Patriot Act II Continues

It's been obvious for a long time that the best way to stop the rise of right-wing extremism in America that everyone's so worried about today is not to pass a bunch of authoritarian laws, but to reverse the policies of soul-crushing neoliberalism and domestic austerity which led to Donald Trump. Instead of doing this, the next president is already pushing a Patriot Act sequel and reducing the stimulus checks he'd promised the public before he's even been sworn in.
