Ed Note: Sorry for the delay, Yahoo experienced a worldwide meltdown of sorts for several hours, according to the current status map. http://downdetector.com/status/yahoo-mail/map/

The featured article today (Seal Team 6 to take-out N. Korean Leader) has been afloat for a couple of days, a complete contrast to President Trump's statement concerning secrecy about military plans. Either it was leaked by those still lingering within the "Deep State" or a direct threat against the little N. Korean dictator. Obviously, nothing is going to take place with some type of raid by Navy Seals, since the  "Munchkin-un" will take all precautions while stepping up his security forces for any type of raid from the south. A simple guided missile would do the job, but the hype to organize a U.S. led military raid against N. Korea is minimal at the very least. Possibly the propaganda is meant to cause "Munchkin-un" to react by launching more missiles towards Japan. In any event, the notion that Navy Seal 6 Team is (still) fully intact is a misnomer since most of the original team that supposedly killed Osama bin Laden were killed in a very strange event by which a Navy Seal Team 6 Commander ordered a full team to board one single Chinook helicopter that was promptly shot down immediately after lifting-off during a mission in Afghanistan. According to statements, it is very unusual to place a complete team on one helicopter. Possibly a remote accident, but strange in that....the shoot down happened within a few months of the bin Laden raid of which absolutely no evidence has ever been provided to media of the individual tossed-over the side of a Navy Aircraft carrier being that of Osama bin Laden. No evidence whatsoever, but many Seal member(s) allegedly were beginning to talk. CIA leaks around 2001 stated that Osama bin Laden was killed at Tora Bora. but "Bush wanted to keep him on ice" until it was politically advantageous, of which Obama took the credit.---Dave Bertrand @bertranddave1

US Delta Force, SEAL Team 6 Prepare To Take Out Kim Jong-Un, Practice Tactical North Korea "Infiltration"

Zero Hedge - On March 1, the WSJ [Wall Street Journal] reported that the options contemplated by the White House in response to recent North Korean acts, include "the possibility of both military force and regime change to counter the country’s nuclear-weapons threat."…. And, according to a report in [South Korean news agency] Yonhap, said "regime change" may come far sooner than expected: the South Korean website writes that U.S. special operations forces, including the unit that killed Osama Bin Laden, will take part in joint military drills in South Korea "to practice incapacitating North Korean leadership in the case of conflict", a military official said Monday…. The U.S. Navy’s Special Warfare Development Group, better known as the SEAL Team 6, will arrive in South Korea for joint military drills and take part in an exercise simulating a precision North Korean incurion and "the removal of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un", according to the Ministry of National Defense Monday…. As Korea JoongAng Daily adds, also set to touch down in South Korea is Delta Force, a special mission unit of the U.S. Army whose main tasks include hostage rescue and counterterrorism, said the Defense Ministry. Together with SEAL Team 6, they will practice removing Kim Jong-un and destruction of North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction…. F-35 stealth fighters will also fly from U.S. Navy bases in Japan this month and carry out strike simulations on key North Korean facilities…. Washington and Seoul stress that the annual military drills are purely defensive, although Pyongyang sees them as a rehearsal for an invasion.

A ruling by the European Union's top court on Tuesday, which allows companies to bar staff from wearing Islamic headscarves and other visible religious symbols, has set off a storm of complaint from rights groups and religious leaders. With its first ruling on a hot political issue across Europe, the Court of Justice (ECJ) has found that a Belgian firm which had a rule barring employees who dealt with customers from wearing visible religious and political symbols "may not have discriminated" against a receptionist dismissed for wearing a headscarf.

The EU is facing an existential crisis and does not look like it will survive the massive political and financial challenges it is faced with. This has ramifications for investors in the EU itself and globally as the collapse of one of the world's largest trading blocs will badly impact already fragile global economic growth and increasingly "frothy" looking financial markets - particularly stock and bond markets.

Though Churkin’s death, in and of itself, may not be enough to arouse suspicion, the fact that five top Russian diplomats have died within 60 days of each other has led some to cast doubt on the State Department’s stated reason for wanting to keep the cause of Churkin’s death hidden from the public.

A federal judge ruled Monday that the Department of Justice may withhold records on its rules for spying on journalists without a warrant. The Freedom of the Press Foundation sued the Department of Justice in July 2015, claiming it failed to disclose Freedom of Information Act-requested documents on guidelines for its warrantless surveillance of journalists. The records were sought after The Associated Press revealed in 2013 that the Department of Justice seized two months of at least seven journalists’ phone records to try to find the source of a leak about a foiled terror plot.

The UK House of Lords just dispensed with the stalling on #Brexit and passed the EU Withdrawal Bill. All that’s left to leave the European Union is for the Prime Minister to invoke Article 50 – which could come as early as tomorrow, though sources at Downing Street say that’s unlikely to happen until the end of the month.

The Predator is dead; long live the Reaper. The retirement of the antiquated Predator drone MQ-1, which is to be withdrawn from service in July and replaced by the more capable MQ-9 Reaper, is giving military analysts an opportunity to review the mixed history of a weapon that has long been associated with low-cost war, a sense of disembodiment from conflict, and for inflicting a high number of civilian casualties.

The war of words between Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and far-right populist Geert Wilders exploded in a face to face debate on Monday as Wilders called on Rutte to close the Netherlands’ borders. “You are being taken hostage by [Turkish President] Erdogan. Close the Dutch borders,” Wilders told his top rival, Rutte, during the 30-minute televised debate. “That’s a totally fake solution,” Rutte retorted, hitting back at Wilders’ suggestion that the Dutch borders should be shut.

Those urban regions that pursue decentralized, networked, localized solutions will likely prosper as the adaptive advantages of these principles pay self-reinforcing dividends. In yesterday's entry, I suggested that rather than bemoan the inevitable failure of centralized "fixes," let's turn our efforts to the real solutions: decentralized, networked, localized. To commentators such as Richard Florida, decentralized, networked, localized describes cities.

How the Liberal-Left Establishment Exposed their Strategic Position A fundamental truth which has emerged since the election of Donald Trump is that the cultural divisions between the left and right have become more pronounced. Though it is possible that the elite establishment which controlled Western nations for decades has been pulling the puppet strings of both ideological positions, the election of Trump has taken back control of the right Republican Party in America and subsequently the nation.

Most Americans do not understand this, but the truth is that the Federal Reserve has far more power over the U.S. economy than anyone else does, and that includes Donald Trump. Politicians tend to get the credit or the blame for how the economy is performing, but in reality it is an unelected, unaccountable panel of central bankers that is running the show, and until something is done about the Fed our long-term economic problems will never be fixed. For an extended analysis of this point, please see this article. In this piece, I am going to explain why the Federal Reserve is currently setting the stage for a recession, a new housing crisis and a stock market crash, and if those things happen unfortunately it will be Donald Trump that will primarily get the blame.

In California, the poor growth and development policies that have resulted from a lack of vision have led-to and are continuing to lead Californians down a path of unsustainable growth and a widening gap between the demand and availability of critical resources, especially water. This gargantuan problem is augmented by a growing financial crises in California as evidenced by an out of control and growing debt problem. All the while, many elected officials in the State along with Governor Jerry Brown are thumbing their noses at the Fed and losing Federal funding for cities that obstinately insist on violating long-established immigration laws. Of course this too is not helpful to the growing State debt, which elected officials will certainly cast-off onto the weakening shoulders of taxpayers using a combination of direct tax increases and other legislative and regulatory ploys that also amount to taxes and less money in the pockets of the People.
