Why Won’t Obama Authorize Strikes on These ISIL Hiding Spots?

One of Daesh’s most effective weapons is its use of media. According to US intelligence officials, the Pentagon knows where the terrorist group’s broadcast centers are located, but the Obama administration has refused to act on the information.

In its effort to recruit, Daesh, also known as ISIL/the Islamic State, relies on a complex multimedia network. Comprised of videos, social media accounts, and a slickly-produced online-only magazine, the destruction of this network is a key component in America’s anti-terror strategy.

Threat that closed down L.A. schools appears to be a hoax, congressman says

A crudely written email threat to members of the Los Angeles Board of Education prompted officials to close all 900 schools in the nation’s second-largest school system Tuesday, sending parents from San Pedro to Pacoima scrambling to find day care — while New York law enforcement dismissed a nearly identical threat from the same sender as an obvious hoax.

The unprecedented districtwide shutdown reflected the tense atmosphere over possible terrorist attacks less than two weeks after two Islamic radicals opened fire at a workplace party in San Bernardino, killing 14.

Foreigners Sell A Record $55.2 Billion In US Treasuries In October

After several months of significant reserves liquidations by China (specifically by its Euroclear proxy “Belgium”) which tracked the drop in China’s reserves practically tick for tick, in October Chinese+Belgian holdings were virtually unchanged according to the latest TIC data, as China moderated its defense of its sliding currency. Of course, putting this in context still shows a China which has sold $600 billion of US paper since 2014, as this website was first to note over half a year ago.
