New plot for second referendum revealed: Tory and Labour Remainers plan to unite to ambush Boris Johnson and force a 'public vote' through Parliament when Commons meets for special Saturday sitting

Opposition MPs and Brexit rebels are planning to ambush Boris Johnson and force him to hold a second referendum on EU membership.

Labour's Hilary Benn said he was looking at ways to get MPs to support a 'people's vote' when the Commons returns for a special Saturday sitting on October 19.

Those behind the plan want a lengthy Brexit extension and a new referendum by the end of March next year – with a general election only following afterwards.

Revealed: Facebook paid just £28m tax despite £1.6billion earnings in UK and a 50% surge in profits

Facebook has generated a record £1.6billion in British sales and its profits are also up 50 per cent but they only paid £28million in UK corporation tax last year, new figures revealed today.

Mark Zuckerberg's social media behemoth increased its UK revenues by almost a third in 2018 - up around £300million - from £1.3billion.

But profits only increased by £36million to £97million - meaning the Treasury only received £28million in corporation tax - with a £356million research and development bill and a £431million wage and pension bill blamed.

Trolls for hire: Investigation finds online smear campaigns can be bought for as little as $8 for a post or $1,500 for two week campaign

A new report shows how easily and cheaply trolls can be hired to spread disinformation online.

Researchers created a fictional company and hired the services of two different disinformation providers, one to spread positive stories and social media posts about the company and another to publicly undermine it.

The services range from $8 for social media posts to $1,500 for SEO services that ensure disinformation posts rank higher in searches.

'Movie Idiocracy is a reality!' Google gets to chug millions of gallons of drinking water from dwindling aquifer to cool servers

Google has been given the go-ahead to pump some 550 million gallons of clean drinking water per year to cool servers at its sprawling data center in South Carolina, sparking outrage and fears the company will deplete the supply.

After months of wrangling over the tech giant’s request, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) gave its approval for the company to draw water from a major aquifer for its data center in Berkeley County, so long as it complies with the terms of the permit, in particular caps on the amount it can use.

While Google insists it strives to “build sustainability” into all of its projects, critics have slammed the move for putting Big Tech ahead of South Carolinians, arguing the aquifer in question is drying up and that its remaining supply should be preserved for residents.

Tehran confirms Iranian tanker hit by 2 projectiles, says attack resulted in oil spill

Tehran has confirmed that an Iranian-owned oil tanker, the Sinopa, was attacked in the Red Sea, and that the mysterious strike caused an oil spill. The vessel was reportedly hit by two missiles.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Friday said that the tanker was “struck twice in half an hour from the eastern side of the Red Sea,” but did not elaborate on the type of missile or munition used in the attack. The incident reportedly occurred 60 miles from the Saudi port of Jeddah.

Selling soles: $3k for a pair of Nike ‘Jesus Shoes’ with holy water was meant to be satire, but they were all snapped up

They look a lot like a normal pair of sneakers, but they’re not. They’re actually normal sneakers which have been messed around with and then sold for a price that would have even the Catholic Church blushing with embarrassment.

Why in Jesus’ name did the company MSCHF do this at all? They claim they were actually trolling what’s called “collab culture” and gave the example of a collaboration which saw Adidas making shoes with the name of an iced tea company on the side.

So, this is an attempt at satire, with Daniel Greenberg, the head of commerce at MSCHF, saying “we wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten.”

Which is a noble aim, a valuable comment on modern society and capitalism, or at least it would be if they didn’t then go and start selling them for $3,000 each! The only people being trolled here are the idiots buying them, and yes, they did sell out in minutes.

Trump Tells Bankrupt UN to Find Money Elsewhere

Facing a massive hole in its budget, the United Nations is implementing “emergency measures” to avoid missing payroll and other obligations before the end of the year.

But Trump was unmoved by the whining. “So make all Member Countries pay, not just the United States!” he fumed on Twitter in his typical style. Prior to that, speaking at the UN in New York City, Trump told “world leaders” last month that the UN needed to ensure that “no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden.”

TRUMP CAN GET BOTH IMPEACHED AND REELECTED. HERE'S HOW | OPINION

Impeachment is pretty much the same as indictment. It's conviction in the Senate Trump has to worry about.It may never get that far.

With Congress and President Trump hurtling to a potential impeachment vote at the same time as the country is gearing up for a brutal presidential election battle, there is an odd possibility—albeit an unlikely one—that Trump could be removed by impeachment, but then come back to regain the presidency a few months later, in the 2020 election.

This improbable result comes from the reality that the law of impeachment does not automatically prevent an impeached and convicted official from running again, which Trump could be able to do as a Republican or Independent candidate come November.

6 Ways The Salem Witch Trials Were Fairer Than Democrats’ Impeachment Inquiry

Attorney Greg Jarrett recently wrote, “It is Pelosi and Schiff who are abusing the power of impeachment in their latest ‘witch hunt.’” This is wildly historically inaccurate. Jarrett should immediately apologize to the memory of the prosecutors of the 17th-century Massachusetts witch trials.

This is because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff are currently running their Ukraine impeachment farce with far less due process than the superstitious and backwards legal system offered the “witches” of Salem.

Below are a few examples of how Jarrett has unfairly slandered the jurisprudence of 17th-century Massachusetts.

Trump Is History and So Is the USA

Paul Craig Roberts

When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported “allegation,” and that the Trump Department of Justice had indicted two associates of Rudy Giuliana, President Trump’s most fervent supporter, for “campaign finance violations,” a very elastic term, it became completely clear that Trump’s own Justice (sic) Department is part of the Deep State’s plot to destroy Trump.

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, the CIA operative blowing the whistle on Trump for calling out corruption by Joe Biden and his family used to work with Joe Biden while he was vice president.

Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only "in the executive branch." The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he "was detailed to the National Security Council at one point."

Al-Labadi, a Palestinian-Jordanian national, was detained by Israeli forces on August 20th at the Allenby Bridge border crossing while she was traveling with her mother, on their way to attend a family wedding in the West Bank. She has been on a hunger strike in protest of her detention for 15 days.

Winston Churchill – Traitor and Murderer

“World history: There are two world histories. One is the official and full of lies, destined to be taught in schools – the other is the secret history, which harbours the true causes and occurrences.” Honore de Balzac

Winston Churchill; the man voted in a newspaper poll as the ‘greatest ever Englishman,’ was actually an evil, self-serving, narcissistic, opportunistic, hypocritical, treacherous, traitorous, perverted paedophile and a murdering psychopath.

Preposterous you say? Read on and see if you still believe this statement to be untrue at the end of this article…

The truth about Winston Churchill is that he was a menace to liberty, and a disaster for Britain, for Europe, for the United States of America, and for Western civilisation itself.

Waging War on Iran Would Be Madness

All nations the US doesn’t control are on its target list for regime change, especially challengers to its hegemonic aims like China and Russia, along with oil rich ones like Iran and Venezuela.

That’s what US hostility toward these countries is all about, not because of a national security threat they pose — other than supporting multi-world polarity, conflicting with US hegemonic unipolar aims, a notion whose time has passed.

Iran can’t match US military power, but its capabilities can hit back hard against aggressors anywhere in the region.

Damascus vows to confront 'brutal' Turkish aggression by all legal means

“After his continuous support for terrorism in Syria, training, arming, protecting and sending terrorists to kill Syrians, the head of the Turkish regime came up today with statements that can only be made by a person detached from reality. He speaks of his commitment to protect Syrian people whilst he has the blood of the Syrian people killed by terrorists on his hands,” Syria’s official news agency SANA cited an unnamed source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates as saying in a statement on Thursday.

Ankara views the US-backed YPG as a terrorist organization tied to the homegrown Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militant group, which has been seeking an autonomous Kurdish region in Turkey since 1984.

The YPG constitutes the backbone of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an anti-Damascus alliance of predominantly Kurdish militants.

U.S. “Military Aid” to Al Qaeda, ISIS-Daesh

Author’s Note and Update

This article was first published by Global Research on October 2, 2016.

The United States and its allies use arms trafficking –i.e. the unregulated illicit trade in light weapons through private traders including organized crime–, to channel large amounts of weapons and ammunition to the terrorists inside Syria.

The US led coalition uses the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel’s IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria.

Best Linux laptops of 2019: the top open-source notebooks

For some people, going with the best Linux laptops is the way to go, contrary to popular opinion that Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s macOS are the only options for a notebook operating system. With this guide, we’re going to dive into the best laptops that are specifically built for the open-source operating system.

There aren’t any mainstream notebook vendors, beyond Dell at least, that offer Linux as a base OS option on a new laptop. This leaves us with other smaller manufacturers, which can carve out a niche for themselves with the best Linux laptops.

Plus, you can still install Linux on pretty much any laptop, even though some manufacturers lock down their products, making installing Linux kind of a pain.

We picked out five of the best Linux laptops on the market right now, all of which have been fine-tuned to run some of the best Linux distros (like Ubuntu, for instance). That means they’re guaranteed run the open-source OS out of the box without any tinkering.

Iran to Sue U.S. Over Breach of Nuclear Deal

Iran is readying to sue the United States in the International Court of Justice over President Donald Trump’s decision to abandon the landmark nuclear deal and reapply tough new sanctions on Tehran, according to officials in Iran’s judiciary.

Laya Joneidi, Iran’s vice president for legal affairs, announced on Monday that Iran will bring charges against the United States and seek an undisclosed amount of monetary damages as a result of America’s "breach of the nuclear deal," according to the country’s state-controlled press.

With Iran’s economy on the ropes as a result of the Trump administration’s sanctions, Tehran is seeking multiple avenues to recoup lost revenue.

China’s Global Reach: Surveillance and Censorship Beyond the Great Firewall

By Danny O’Brien

Those outside the People’s Republic of China (PRC) are accustomed to thinking of the Internet censorship practices of the Chinese state as primarily domestic, enacted through the so-called “Great Firewall”—a system of surveillance and blocking technology that prevents Chinese citizens from viewing websites outside the country. The Chinese government’s justification for that firewall is based on the concept of “Internet sovereignty.” The PRC has long declared that “within Chinese territory, the internet is under the jurisdiction of Chinese sovereignty.”

Hong Kong, as part of the “one country, two systems” agreement, has largely lived outside that firewall: foreign services like Twitter, Google, and Facebook are available there, and local ISPs have made clear that they will oppose direct state censorship of its open Internet.

Amazon employees 'watch home security footage from Cloud Cams including video of owners having sex'

Amazon employees are reportedly watching video taken from inside people's homes on the tech giant's Cloud Cam and have even seen customers having sex.

The security camera, which links up to the Alexa voice assistant, allows people keep an eye on what's happening in their home 24/7.

But, according to anonymous insiders, human workers at the company are watching up to 150 20 to 30 second clips per day, some of which are intended to be private.

In some instances, the employees said, staff are faced with footage of intimate moments inside people's houses.

The company insists footage is only reviewed if it's sent in voluntarily because of a problem and that customers are 'in control' of their videos.

Minnesota Weather: Snow Possible In The Twin Cities This Weekend, Accumulating Snow In Northwestern Minnesota

Enjoy Wednesday’s summer-like warmth, with sunny skies and highs in the low 70s, because the next few days will bring significant changes. By the weekend, snow could be falling in the Twin Cities.

Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak says there’s a slow-moving cold front out west that’ll begin to inch into western Minnesota on Thursday, splitting temperatures sharply between the western and eastern halves of the state.

According to Augustyniak, the next few days will be a carousel through the seasons. Thursday will feel like spring, as there’ll be rain showers and possible storms. Friday will feel like fall, as temperatures drop and snow swirls in the Red River Valley, and Saturday will feel like winter, with accumulating snow in western Minnesota and slushy, wet snow possible in the Twin Cities.

200-square-foot ‘shed’ renting for $1,050 a month in California

A rental listing in San Diego received some backlash from locals who say the rental illustrates how bad the cost of living has become in the city.

On a rental site called Zumper, the listing shows a 200-square-foot “studio” that is located in the University Heights neighborhood.

Monthly rent is $1,050 but the potential renter must have an income 2.5 times more than that and a credit score of 650 or better. They must also have good rental references and no rental evictions on their record.

The small abode comes with a wall air conditioning unit, full bathroom and a kitchen with a mini-fridge and full-sized stove and oven.

However, the results of these attacks are more than staggering, as they reveal the incompetence of Saudi military structures and the inability of the kingdom to protect its core infrastructure and defend its troops and territory.

So, why have Saudis experienced one humiliating defeat after another?

Tracking foreign interference in Hong Kong

Lawrence YK Ma is the executive council chairman of the Hong Kong Legal Exchange Foundation and director of the China Law Society, the Chinese Judicial Studies Association and the Hong Kong Legal Exchange Foundation. He also finds time to teach law at Nankai University in Tianjin.

Ma is the go-to expert in what is arguably the most sensitive subject in Hong Kong: He meticulously tracks perceived foreign interference in the Special Administrative Region (SAR).

In the West, in similar circumstances, he would be a media star. With a smirk, he told me that local journalists, whether working in English or Chinese, rarely visit him – not to mention foreigners.

Ma received me at his office in Wanchai this past Saturday morning after a “dark day” of rampage, as described by the SAR government. He wasted no time before calling my attention to a petition requesting a “United Nations investigation into the United States’ involvement in Hong Kong riots.”

Joe Biden’s Family Has Been Cashing in on His Career for Decades. Democrats Need to Acknowledge That.

The problem for Democrats is that a review of Hunter Biden’s career shows clearly that he, along with Joe Biden’s brother James, has been trading on their family name for decades, cashing in on the implication — and sometimes the explicit argument — that giving money to a member of Joe Biden’s family wins the favor of Joe Biden. Democrats have been loath to give any credibility to the wild rantings of Trump or his bagman Rudy Giuliani, leaving them to sidestep the question of Hunter Biden’s ethics or decision-making, and how much responsibility Joe Biden deserves. Republicans, though, have no such qualms, and have made clear that smearing the Bidens as corrupt will be central to Trump’s reelection campaign. The Trump approach is utterly without shame or irony, with attacks even coming from failson Eric Trump.

Another Russiagate Flop: Senate Finance Committee Calls NRA a Russian Asset

The U.S. Senate Finance Committee released a report in September, claiming the National Rifle Association (NRA) acted as a "foreign asset" for Russia in the run-up to the 2016 election. The 77-page minority report released by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) focuses on a 2015 NRA delegation to Russia, and the relationship between the NRA and Russian nationals, Maria Butina and Alexander Torshin. The report capitalizes on the anti-Russia attitude that is so prevalent today in US politics and seems like nothing more than an attempt to smear and embarrass the NRA.

Maria Butina is the founder of the Russian gun rights organization Right to Bear Arms. She is currently serving an 18-month sentence for violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). FARA requires "persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal."
