Fathers' Day Special We're enjoying Fathers' Day by doing more yard work! And we're also prepping for WRUW's LIVE FROM CLEVELAND Exclusive Remote Broadcast from the Cleveland Art Museum's Sixth Annual Summer Solstice Concert! So we're still piecing together this week's missive. Here are some HEADLINES from TVNEWSLIESCan't wait 'til they find a way to frack that. BOB KINCAID from Head On Radio has this to say Why the New EPA CO2 Regs Are Meaningless In Mountaintop Removal Country Over at Washington's Blog has this Guest Post with Russel Tice NSA Whistleblower: Snowden Never Had Access to the JUICIEST Documents Also at Tyler Durden has this Iraq Update: Kurds Take Kirkuk, Al Qaeda Surges Toward Baghdad Now that 25 year old math PhD HFT programmers have finally figured out what this thing called Iraq is, and why headlines around it should factor into algo trading signals - especially those of crude oil - here, for their benefit is a summary of the latest events in Iraq, and also for everyone else confused why crude is back to levels not seen since last summer. ....... Reuters adds that "The whole of Kirkuk has fallen into the hands of peshmerga," citing Jabbar Yawar. "No Iraqi army remains in Kirkuk now." This in turn has put the output of the key Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline, with a 1.6MM bbls/day capacity, at risk. ............ However, as we showed yesterday, the final ISIS target is none other than the city of Baghdad, and the overthrow of the Iraq government entirely. ............. In Tikrit, militants have set up military councils to run the towns they captured, residents said. “They came in hundreds to my town and said they are not here for blood or revenge but they seek reforms and to impose justice. They picked a retired general to run the town,” said a tribal figure from the town of Alam, north of Tikrit. “'Our final destination will be Baghdad, the decisive battle will be there,' that’s what their leader of the militants group kept repeating," the tribal figure said. The powerful Shiite leader, Moqtada al-Sadr, urged his followers on Wednesday to form military units to defend the two cities, which along with Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia are considered sacred by Shiites. ....... * * * ..... The Kurdish capture of Kirkuk instantly overturns the fragile balance of power that has held Iraq together as a state since Saddam's fall. Iraq's Kurds have done well since 2003, running their own affairs while being given a fixed percentage of the country's overall oil revenue. But with full control of Kirkuk - and the vast oil deposits beneath it - they could earn more on their own, eliminating the incentive to remain part of a failing Iraq. ........... And while all of the above explains oil's spike today, now that the world has yet another geopolitical hotzone to follow, following the China-Japan naval conflict, the China-Vietnam escalation, the Thailand martial law, the Ukraine civil war and now the Iraq collapse, expect the USDJPY rigging crew to ignite enough momentum to send the S&P 500 to fresh all time highs. Professor Juan Cole calls out John McCain Dear Sen. McCain: No, the Taliban Prisoners didn’t Carry out 9/11; but you Supported Muslim Radicals at Informed Comment Sen. John McCain on Sunday maintained that President Obama, in releasing the five officials who had served in the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in the 1990s and until 2001, had released people who were “hard core al-Qaeda who were responsible for 9/11.I am shocked and dismayed that the knowledgeable Sen. McCain should confuse the Taliban and al-Qaeda and should blame Afghans for 9/11. The Taliban regime did host al-Qaeda and they were allies within Afghanistan against the Northern Alliance. The Taliban did also allow al-Qaeda to train fighters at training camps, who were known to have an interest in carrying out attacks in Indian Kashmir, Uzbekistan, etc. However, I know of no documentary evidence that the officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan helped plan, or even knew about, the 9/11 attacks on the US until they occurred. No Afghans were directly involved in those attacks or in the money trail for funding them. ....... The League of Conservation Voters has this National Environmental Scorecard for soon-to-be new House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy R-CA23 2013 Score: 0%. Lifetime Score: 3% including these 2013 "NO" votes on: and that's just a few! WAR ON AMERICAN CITIZENS:In a related matter yet another BTV Book Club Pick! Catherine Austin Fitts reviews "Matt Taibbi’s The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap" FROM FREE PRESS One year ago today, Edward Snowden's revelations shocked our democracy to its core. So we fought back. In the days after, Free Press and our friends launched StopWatching.Us, a coalition of hundreds of organizations and companies from across the political spectrum. Close to 600,000 people signed a petition calling for accountability and reform, and in October, thousands marched at the Rally Against Mass Surveillance. This week our friends at Fight for the Future launched the Reset the Net campaign. It's helping both Internet users and companies adopt simple security standards that will make it harder for intelligence agencies to spy on us. The site recommends standards websites can adopt and offers a "privacy pack" that includes smart ways to keep your communications private. Here's how Free Press is doing its part: We've removed every third-party tracker from our websites. The usual Facebook and Twitter buttons are gone: In their place are buttons that let you preserve your privacy while you share our stuff. We've also removed Google Analytics, which provides helpful data on website traffic but also tracks your every move after you leave our properties. We're now using Piwik, the free and open-source software that respects the privacy of Internet users. Meanwhile, the best way to protect everyone from out-of-control government surveillance is through real reforms that roll back the worst of the NSA's programs. But the watered-down version of the USA Freedom Act that just passed the House could actually hurt our privacy rather than protect it. In the coming weeks the fight will move to the Senate as it takes up the bill. Thanks for being a crucial part of this fight. -Josh, Candace, Misty and the rest of the Free Press team, We'll try to piece together something for you later this Sunday. IN THE MEANTIME Visit all our regulars! And put some coin in their tip jars while yer there! We're certain you will find something that makes you instantly smarter! Haha! And you just might find a few brick targets on the Sunday Beltway Bubalas Talkies too! PLUS plenty more News & Comments too on our SIDEBAR over there! --------->

    Signal amplification: From American & United Airlines Puts to Clorox Calls by Stacy Herbert — Stacy Summary: An interesting piece from Bloomberg highlighting the concept called ‘signal amplification,’ where traders place massive bets based on signals from the options market . . . even if they don’t know who has made that signal as it were.
