The Real Benghazi Story………….?

The Real Benghazi Story………….?
From Wikileaks:
So here’s the REAL story:
Amb. Stevens was sent to Benghazi in order to retrieve US made Stinger missiles supplied to Ansar al Sharia without Congressional oversight or permission. Hillary brokered the deal through Stevens and a private arms dealer named Marc Turi. Then some of the shoulder fired missiles ended up in Afghanistan and were used against our own military. It was July 25th, 2012 when a Chinook helicopter was taken down by one of our own Stingers, but the idiot Taliban didn’t arm the missile and the Chinook didn’t explode, but had to land anyway.  An ordnance team recovered the serial number off the missile which led back to a cache of Stingers being kept in Qatar by the CIA. 
Obama and Hillary were now in full panic mode and Stevens was sent in to retrieve the rest of the Stingers.  This was a “do-or-die” mission, which explains the stand down orders given to multiple commando teams.
It was the State Dept., not the CIA, that supplied them to our sworn enemies, because Petraeus wouldn’t approve supplying these deadly weapons due to their potential use on commercial aircraft.  Then, Obama threw Gen. Petraeus under the bus after he refused to testify that he OK’d the BS talking points about a spontaneous uprising due to a YouTube video.
Obama and Hillary committed treason and THIS is what the investigation is all about, why she had a private server, (in order to delete the digital evidence), and why Obama, two weeks after the attack, told the UN that the attack was the result of a YouTube video, even though everyone knew it was not. 
Further…the Taliban knew that this administration aided and abetted the enemy without Congressional approval when Boehner created the Select Cmte, and the Taliban began pushing the Obama Administration for the release of 5 Taliban Generals. Bowe Bergdahl was just a pawn…everyone KNEW he was a traitor. 
So we have a traitor as POTUS that is not only corrupt, but compromised and a woman that is a serial liar, perjured herself multiple times at Congressional hearings.  Perhaps this is why no military aircraft was called in…because the administration knew our enemies had Stingers.

The Future Projected? What do you think?

The Future Projected?  What do you think?
1.  The FUTURE is approaching faster than one can handle….!
In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.  Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt.
What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 5-10 years and, most people won’t see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again?
Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore ‘s law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again (but much faster) with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.
Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.  Welcome to the Exponential Age.
2.  Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.
3.  Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.
4.  Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.
5.  Artificial Intelligence: computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected.
6.  In the US, young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of IBM’s Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.
So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only omniscient specialists will remain.
    6A.  Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, its 4 times more accurate than human nurses.
7.  Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans.  In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.  (NEVER!/Albert)
8.  Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving.
The very young children of today will never get a driver’s licence and will never own a car.
    8A.  It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that.   We can transform former parking spaces into parks. 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 mi (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6 million mi (10 million km). That will save a million lives world wide each year.
    8B.  Most car companies will doubtless become bankrupt.  Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.
    8C.  Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.
9.  Insurance companies will have massive trouble because, without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper.  Their car insurance business model will disappear.
10.  Real estate will change.  Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighbourhood.  [This is unlikely due to urbanization, see: Urbanization -Stu]

11.  Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020.  Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity.
12.  Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.
13.  Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that simply cannot continue – technology will take care of that strategy.
14.  With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents).  We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water.  Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.
15.  Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.
16.  It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease.  It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free.  Goodbye, self-serving medical practitioners and establishments.
17.  3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years.  In the same time, it became 100 times faster.  All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.
18.  Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.
19.  At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.
    19A.  In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-storey office building.  By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will be 3D printed.
20. Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, first ask yourself: “In the future, do I think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?
    20A.  If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea.  Any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.
    20B.  Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a short time.  This will require a rethink on wealth distribution.
21.  Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future.  Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields.
22.  Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish produced veal, is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018.  Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows.  Imagine if we don’t need that space anymore.
23.  There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly.  It contains more protein than meat.  It will be labeled as “alternative protein source” (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).
24.  There is an app called “moodies” which can already tell in which mood you’re in.  By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying.  Imagine a political debate where it’s being displayed when they’re telling the truth and when they’re not – it will ultimately compel all politicians to be truthful (a truly unique & novel occurrence).

You Could Have Heard a Pin Drop

You Could Have Heard a Pin Drop
At a time when too many of our politicians tend to apologize for our
country’s prior actions, here’s a refresher on how some of our former
patriots handled negative comments about our country:
JFK’S Secretary of  State, Dean Rusk, was in  France in the early
60’s when deGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. deGaulle
said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible.
Rusk responded, “Does that include those who are buried here?” 
deGaulle did not respond.

When in England, at a fairly  large conference, Colin Powell was asked by
the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of
’empire building’ by George Bush.
 He answered by saying, “Over the  years, the United States has sent
 many of its fine young men and  women into great peril to fight for
 freedom beyond our  borders.  The only amount of land we have ever
 asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.”
 You could have heard a pin  drop
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~ ~~~~
 There was a conference   in France where a number of international
  engineers were taking  part, including French and American.  During a
  break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying,
 “Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an
  aircraft carrier to Indonesia  to help the tsunami victims.  What does he
  intend to do, bomb  them?”
  A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:  “Our carriers have
  three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are
  nuclear powered and can supply emergency  electrical power to shore facilities;
  they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people  three
  meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of  fresh water from
  sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in
  transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck.  We have
  eleven such ships; how many does France have?”
  You could have heard a pin drop.
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~ ~~~~ 
  A U.S. Navy Admiral was  attending a naval conference that included
 Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies.
 At a cocktail  reception, he found himself standing with a large group
 of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.  Everyone
 was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French
 admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages,
 Americans learn only English. He then asked, “Why is it that we always
 have to speak English in these conferences  rather than speaking French?”
 Without hesitating, the  American Admiral replied, “Maybe it’s because
 the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t
 have to speak German.”
 You could have heard a pin drop.
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ ~~~~~~~~  
 Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.  At
 French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.
 “You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked
  Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.
 “Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.”
  The American said, “The last time I was here, I didn’t have to show it.”
  “Impossible.  Americans always have to show their passports on arrival
  in France!”
 The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look.  Then he quietly
 explained, “Well, when I  came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to
 help liberate this country, I couldn’t find a single Frenchmen to show
 a passport to.”
You could have heard a pin drop.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~
If you are proud to be an American, pass this on! If not, delete it.
I am proud to be of this land, AMERICA.  I hope we can keep it.
If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can read it in English, thank a Veteran
