The Blue Whale game is a disturbing online trend coming out of Russia. After completely various tasks and instructions, after 50 days the player must kill themselves to win the game. Where did this come from? What is it all about? Why? Is it real? Let’s investigate the Blue Whale online social media game that’s causing Russian teenagers to commit suicide.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that man-made climate change is a hoax, perpetuated by Western governments and corporations to make a profit.
According to Putin, icebergs in the Arctic have been melting for decades, which he says proves the global warming is a natural phenomena.
“The warming, it had already started by the 1930s,” Putin said at an Arctic forum held in the northern Russian city of Arkhangelsk.
“That’s when there were no such anthropological factors, such emissions, and the warming had already started.”
The Kremlin strongman added: “The issue is not stopping it … because that’s impossible, since it could be tied to some global cycles on Earth or even of planetary significance. The issue is to somehow adapt to it.”
Putin supported his argument by saying that an Austrian explorer who had a “photographic memory” visited the Franz Josef Land archipelago “in the 1930s.”
Twenty years later the explorer was shown photographs from another expedition there “by the future king of Italy” and concluded that “there were fewer icebergs there,” Putin said.
It wasn’t immediately clear which explorers Putin was referring to and Italy did not have a king in the 1950s.
Austrian explorer Julius von Payer discovered and mapped the archipelago during a 1872-1874 expedition.
The only Italian expedition to the area was organized in 1899 by Prince Luigi Amedeo, who was also an explorer.
The archipelago was declared Soviet territory by the 1930s.
Putin had previously hailed global warming for exposing natural resources and transport routes that had long been too expensive to exploit.
He had also once speculated that warming by “two or three degrees” could be a good thing for Russians who would no longer need fur coats.
On Thursday, while his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto called climate change a “serious threat” for the Arctic, Putin said that it brings “more propitious conditions for using this region for economic ends.”
The Russian leader also wished luck to anti-climate litigator Scott Pruitt, who was confirmed last month as the new chief of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to the horror of the scientific community.
Asked by moderator Geoff Cutmore of the CNBC what he thinks of the appointment of Pruitt, a climate skeptic who wants to roll back Washington’s participation in the Paris climate accord, Putin said Pruitt’s views deserve to be heard.
“Positions and suggestions of those who don’t agree with their opponents are not so stupid,” Putin said. “God grant him health and success, everybody should listen to one another and only then you can find an optimal solution to the problem.”
Russia is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, according to government data, and both scientists and emergencies officials have indicated that disasters such as deadly floods and wildfires are influenced by climate change.
Wow, did I honestly just read this? Senator Charles Grassley has sent his second letter to FBI Director James Comey to inquire about how the FBI became involved in colluding with Christopher Steele, a former agent for the U.K.’s foreign intelligence service, MI6, concerning the lurid dossier on President Donald Trump and Russia.
I am sitting here reading this in disbelief, as this whole thing just keeps getting bigger and bigger like Director Comey’s nose. This is Senator Grassley’s second letter! Does Comey really believe he can hide behind closed doors at this point? Director Comey needs to wake up and confess his dirty deeds.
So now we discover the FBI was actually involved in that crazy dossier and the golden waters story! I still am not clear on where this actually originated. There was an actual rumor it originated on the Internet site 4chan as a prank. Remember that? But then it turned into the Christopher Steele spy story, and finally there was actually a man associated with Steele who was found deceased in his car.
Steele had been commissioned by an opposition research firm at the request of Republican opponents of Trump to dig into allegations that the Russian government had a substantial amount of compromising information on Trump during his effort to win the GOP presidential nomination. After Trump became the party nominee, a backer of Hillary Clinton continued to pay for the information. This is unbelievable!
In October just a few weeks before the election, the FBI agreed to fund Steele’s investigations even as it remained unsure about the legitimacy. No payments were ever exchanged, but the damage was done after the dossier became public knowledge. Who would ever imagine the FBI would be mixed up in such a thing?
“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics,” Grassley wrote in a March 6 letter to Comey. However, that letter went unanswered.
Here is a video about the matter:
How can FBI Director James Comey continue to disregard the law when he is the Director of what used to be the most respected agency not only in the United States but the world? What has he done to the FBI? It can never recover from this type of damage. While the FBI was created to uphold the law, it became involved with Hillary Clinton, and helped to destroy it…just as she does everything she touches, with the germs of dirty money.
In Grassley’s second letter dated March 28, he says, “The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama Administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends.”
Why doesn’t someone just charge Clinton and Obama once and for all?
Further Grassley demands that “all FBI policies, procedures, and guidelines applicable when the FBI seeks to fund an investigator associated with a political opposition research firm connected to a political candidate, or with any outside entity.”
A very important aspect in Grassley’s communications to the FBI is his focus on Andrew McCabe. McCabe was a friend of Hillary’s. He is currently under investigation by the FBI’s Inspector General for playing a role in Clinton’s email investigation. Here we go again with Hillary Clinton’s poisonous touch.
McCabe’s wife accepted nearly $700,000 in political donations arranged by a close friend, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, for her run for state senator. Remember that? I do!
Grassley goes on to write: “While Mr McCabe recused himself from public corruption cases in Virginia…he failed to recuse himself from the Clinton email investigation, despite the appearance of a conflict created by his wife’s campaign accepting $700,000 from a close Clinton associate during the investigation.”
A key passage from Grassley’s letter is as follows:
Mr. McCabe’s appearance of a partisan conflict of interest relating to Clinton associates only magnifies the importance of those questions. That is particularly true if Mr. McCabe was involved in approving or establishing the FBI’s reported arrangement with Mr. Steele, or if Mr. McCabe vouched for or otherwise relied on the politically-funded dossier in the course of the investigation. Simply put, the American people should know if the FBI’s second-in-command relied on Democrat-funded opposition research to justify an investigation of the Republican presidential campaign.
The following questions are being asked by Grassley of the FBI:
I truly appreciate Senator Charles Grassley and his commitment to the inquiry into the FBI’s role in this whole horrid affair. America waits speechless and in shock for answers.
