G20 ’17: Saudi King Rented Out the Entirety Of a Four Seasons Hotel – and Camels will be Flown in to Supply the Delegation with Fresh Camel’s Milk

My Note: In the mean time, the king of Saudi Barbaria canceled G20 summit trip to Hamburg due to Gulf crisis. On the other note, according to Focus, researchers fear big epidemic because Mers ((MERS-CoV / SARS) infections flicker again. When such a close relationship with camels occurs a Mers infection can be fatal. The virus could trigger a pandemic. Currently, new cases from Saudi Arabia are known. Now, will they allow the Saudis to bring their camels to Hamburg? Kim Jong-un will fly faster than his rockets if all the G20 leaders get infected there. Let’s remember key parts of the September 11 terrorist plot took shape in the beautiful city of Hamburg – and most of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Understatement

The title for the most demure delegation will go, as always, to Saudi Arabia. The Saudis have rented out the entirety of Hamburg’s swanky Four Seasons hotel – Trump tried to book himself in and got refused – and that’s only 160 rooms of the 400 in total the delegation will occupy. A hotel ballroom has been repurposed as a suitably spacious living room, and Saudi King Salman ibn Abd al-Aziz will be bringing his own throne and a golden escalator with which to disembark his airplane.

There are also reports that camels will be flown in to supply the delegation with fresh camel’s milk, but Hamburg police say they know nothing about this and the Saudi Arabian embassy denied it. But even without the dromedaries, the Saudis are guaranteed to make a oil-rig-sized splash.

King Salman will, of course, be bringing with him a battery of personal chefs, and the other heads of state might want to consider doing the same. The German Foreign Ministry says that the catering for the summit will particularly emphasize “regional specialties.” Northern Germany, however, isn’t known for its cuisine, with good reason. Local favorites include smoked eel, “pears, beans and bacon,” and “Labskaus,” corned-beef hash with pickled herring and red beets and topped with a fried egg. What isn’t better with a fried egg on top?

The good news for those world leaders who decide they’d rather go out to eat after all, is that G20 participants will be given free passes to use Hamburg’s subway and bus system. So look out for lots of heads of state on public transport.

Top-Secret Document Reveals NSA Spied On Porn Habits As Part Of Plan To Discredit ‘Radicalizers’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 3, 2013

The National Security Agency has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of those whom the agency believes are radicalizing others through incendiary speeches, according to a top-secret NSA document. The document, provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, identifies six targets, all Muslims, as “exemplars” of how “personal vulnerabilities” can be learned through electronic surveillance, and then exploited to undermine a target’s credibility, reputation and authority.

The NSA document, dated Oct. 3, 2012, repeatedly refers to the power of charges of hypocrisy to undermine such a messenger. “A previous SIGINT” — or signals intelligence, the interception of communications — “assessment report on radicalization indicated that radicalizers appear to be particularly vulnerable in the area of authority when their private and public behaviors are not consistent,” the document argues.

Among the vulnerabilities listed by the NSA that can be effectively exploited are “viewing sexually explicit material online” and “using sexually explicit persuasive language when communicating with inexperienced young girls.”
