THE CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE AGAINST PALESTINE

The Palestinian Conflict has almost disappeared from the headlines with the added tragedy that it is regarded in media and political circles as being “unsolvable” and consequently something to be ignored.

NYT, WAPO FAKE NEWS STILL BRINGING REAL GUNS TO IRAQ, KILLING THOUSANDS

Fake news propagated by the US government and collaborating organizations such as the New York Times and Washington Post helped create an environment in which the US was able to illegally invade Iraq in 2003, killing at least one million and possibly upwards of two million people, including the deaths of some 4,500 US soldiers, according to a meta-study by Nobel-winning Physicians for Social Responsibility.

Just this November, nearly 6,000 people were killed in Iraq thanks to the conflicts that are still raging due to the invasion (which is ongoing), and it was not an atypical month – even more were killed in October.

Regarding the fake news that laid the groundwork for the US war of aggression, award-winning journalist Robert Parry notes that, for example, Judith Miller of NYT and Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt “repeatedly stated the ‘fact’ of Iraq’s hidden WMD as flat fact and mocked anyone who doubted the ‘group think.'”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fake news from the presstitutes which generates wars and death should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of US law.

Star Wars: Rogue One just launched a Donald Trump protest movement

The team behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are turning the movie's iconic imagery into a protest movement against US president-elect Donald Trump.

In the wake of Trump's anti-immigrant and sexist rhetoric somehow carrying him to the White House, Rogue One writers Chris Weitz and Gary Whitta are using Star Wars' Rebel insignia to inspire his opponents.

The two have combined the black Rebellion symbol with a safety pin, itself an image championed by many after Brexit as a way to rally support for immigrant and other minority groups.

"Please note that the Empire is a white supremacist (human) organization," Weitz tweeted to his followers, with Whitta adding: "Opposed by a multi-cultural group led by brave women."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not planning to see this film. And I was at the Toy Store yesterday picking up some last minute gifts, and there were stacks of Rogue One toys right at the front of the store.

Nobody was buying them.

How Will Trump Handle the Financial Crisis He Is Inheriting?

While we’ve all been hoping that President-Elect Trump will fix the financial disaster we find ourselves nearing, no one can deny that the man is inheriting a mess. During the Obama administration, our national debt climbed to heights never seen before and the President kicked the can squarely into Trump’s playing field.

If the expected economic disaster occurs, it isn’t going to be because of anything Donald Trump has done wrong. The blame can be laid squarely on previous administrations. However, when we’re dealing with the economic collapse of America, that will be of little solace.

Buy Silver – May Replace Gold as Preferred Money of India

The Indian government has been trying to reduce its citizens’ demand for imported gold through a number of means over the last few years. This is part of a wider crackdown on currency used in the black market, that included the withdrawal and replacement of its two largest-denomination bank notes in early November. The strategy will likely have some unintended consequences if we take our cues from the events of 1910.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The name "Black Market" is used to create a negative connotation, bolstered by lurid stories of drugs, organs, and children being bought and sold. But in actuality, the black market is any transaction that occurs outside government monitoring and bank profiteering. If you sell your old computer on Craiglist and are paid in cash, leaving no record, technically that is the Black Market.

The goal here is not to curb the drug/organ/human trade but to force everyone into dependence on the banks to handle their commerce for them, with the banks charging ever higher fees in their monopoly, and governments taxing every single transaction.

Dismal Jobs Report — Paul Craig Roberts

The presstitute media delivered the false news, not from Russian propaganda websites such as the Washington Post accuses this one of being, but from Obama’s US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The false news is that the collapsing economy continues to boom with 178,000 new jobs in November and a further fall in the rate of unemployment to 4.6%.

What are the facts? Nothing you will ever hear from the presstitutes or the corrupt Obama regime.

The facts are that November produced only 9,000 full time jobs, an improvement over the previous month when full time employment declined by 103,000 jobs—another fact that you did not hear about from the presstitutes.

According to the BLS payroll jobs report, the jobs available in November were waitresses and bartenders, temporary help, and ambulatory health care services. These are not the kind of jobs that result in home ownership or an independent existence.

The Tide Is Turning Against the Oligarchs — Paul Craig Roberts

The ruling oligarchy and their presstitute media have become desperate now that they are losing control over explanations and Americans’ minds. Thus, they charge independent Internet journalists such as myself with being Russian agents peddling fake news. Recent legislation in the House of Representatives, the list of 200 alleged Russian agents, and the attacks on president-elect Trump from within the US intelligence community make it clear that pressures on truthtellers are increasing.

Internet sites that have comment sections make it easy for trolls to earn their blood money by slandering and misrepresenting truthtellers, thus aiding the oligarchs in their attack on truth.

Assassination of John Lennon


When John Lennon was shot and killed
the news media went into "lone nut with
a gun" mode.

They left out the "lone nut with intelligence connections, endless financial resources, and obvious signs of having been brainwashed"
part.

Here's the untold story.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The government was afraid of Lennon's extreme popularity, which had spread from his music to his philosophy as well. His song, "Imagine" terrified the establishment, postulating a world free from religious domination, governments, and conspicuous consumption. That John Lennon could motivate young people everywhere in any direction he wished was obvious, and a threat to the status quo.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Promises To Be An SJW Sermon Against White Males

Of course, you cannot hold responsible the score of writers and hundreds of employees working on Rogue One for the statements of just one of their writers. Additionally, one low-ranking writer’s political opinion about a movie, does not mean the movie will be political. But when two more (higher-ranked) writers condoned White’s statement, and further hinted that The Empire was a white supremacist organization, you knew Rogue One was going to be (yet another) SJW sermon against “evil” white males and the merits of women and minorities because…uhhhh…”vagina” and melanin.

New York blacklist revives McCarthy tactics

In June, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order calling for the state to cut financial ties with institutions that boycott Israel.

Hilariously, there are no more “markets” in the market anymore; everything is rigged to rise or fall based on what serves the interests of those pulling the strings. Supply, demand, risk and scarcity no longer function in any rational way whatsoever, and that means the end is rapidly approaching for the “everything is awesome” debt bubble chapter of human history.

The first step in fixing a problem is to acknowledge that it exists.

In fact many would argue that the Neo-Conservative movement is simply a front group for Israel and has thoroughly and openly taken over and corrupted the US Government in its legislative, executive, and judicial branches.

$300 Trillion Time Bomb: The Total Amount Of Debt In The World Is About Three Times The Global GDP Which Means Every Bit Of Potential Collateral Is Pledged To Someone, Somewhere In Some Fashion.

Some debt is actually listed as both an asset and a liability. Your mortgage is most likely in some sort of synthetic financial instrument as an asset against which there is some form of debt. Government bonds are used for collateral, as they are often considered the most reliable and trustworthy asset on earth. Banks soak up US debt, for example, because it is worth more to the bank than their cash deposits, as they can quickly package bonds into other financial transactions like repo agreements.

Trump's DHS Chief "In my experience the further you get away from Washington the better things work."

66-year-old U.S. Marine General John Francis Kelly's last job in government was the Obama administration's Commander for U.S Southern Command, which he held until his retirement in January 2016. He ran Gitmo for 38 months and stressed that the detainees were treated very humanely. Kelly is the highest ranking military man to have lost a child in combat. Kelly's youngest son Robert was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. Kelly himself did 3 tours in Iraq and in his final press conference said "I was kinda tired of the war...This war stuff is hard."
Kelly also referred to "agenda driven people here in Washington." On the topic of Islamic extremists, he says "the vast majority of people who follow the Islamic faith are good, law abiding folks." Here are the highlights from his final 45-minute press conference on Jan 8, 2016. Frankly my assessment is that he seems like a plain spoken, honest, genuine and sincere person.

Pfizer and Flynn Pharma fined over 2,600% NHS price hike

The regulator's investigation found prices were raised by up to 2,600% after the drug, once known as Epanitin, was "deliberately" de-branded in September 2012 when Stevenage-based Flynn bought the UK distribution rights from Pfizer.

It meant that because the drug was now generic it was no longer subject to price regulation.

The CMA said the amount the NHS was charged for 100mg packs of the drug rocketed from £2.83 to £67.50 - raising the annual cost from about £2m annually in 2012 to £50m the following year.

It added: "The prices of the drug in the UK have also been many times higher than Pfizer's prices for the same drug in any other European country."

The book said 306, and the ticket said 306, so that means there should be 306 paper ballots on the box. When they pulled out the ballots, there were exactly FIFTY paper ballots in a locked sealed box that again was supposed to have 306. The official canvasser approved count for this precinct was 306.

ISRAELI GOVERNMENT PUSHES NATIONAL BIOMETRIC DATABASE WITH CLAIMS OF SECURITY SUPERIORITY NOBODY THINKS ARE TRUE

There has been something of a push in recent years in different countries to build biometric databases of varying degrees. These efforts are typically marred by pushback and controversy, with countries like Argentina using these databases in order to have law enforcement chill its citizenry from protests in the streets, with our very own FBI rolling out its own biometric database that lacked the promised privacy oversight with which it had been billed. Despite the fact that you can nearly set your watch to the speed with which such lists will be abused, these previous efforts at least paid lip-service to the notion that the databases would focus only on criminals in their respective countries.

Dr. Jill Stein: A Harvard Medical School graduate who sides with the pro-vaccine, vaccines-don't-cause-autism faction

In an interview with the Washington Post, Stein stated that "vaccines have been absolutely critical in ridding us of the scourge of many diseases," and said that "[t]here were concerns among physicians about what the vaccination schedule meant, the toxic substances like mercury which used to be rampant in vaccines. There were real questions that needed to be addressed. I think some of them at least have been addressed. I don’t know if all of them have been addressed. The Guardian says that "research has shown schedule-related concerns about vaccines to be unfounded, and that delays to vaccines actually put children at greater risk. Anti-vaxx campaigners often claim that there are dangerous compounds in vaccines, though decades of safe vaccinations contradict the claim and no evidence shows that trace amounts that remain in some approved vaccines cause any harm to the body."

Michigan Recount: One-Third of Heavily Democratic Precincts Likely Disqualified

Lawrence Norden, a legal expert with New York University, speculated that the law was put in place to avoid ballot stuffing. As he told the Detroit Free Press, "You wouldn't want someone to be able to, after the fact, stuff the ballot box and have that counted." But in their zeal to defend their state from ballot-stuffing, the 1954 Michigan legislature may have inadvertently nullified attempts to uncover potential voter fraud.

Yesterday, RIA reported that Philadelphia and Pittsburgh recounted their presidential election votes and found just five votes that had been previously uncounted, a major blow to those hoping the recount would overturn President-Elect Donald Trump’s victory in that state. No evidence of fraud was found in either of those cities.

New exam results may support Trump's claim that some American schools are worse than those in '3rd-world' countries

One country that continues to beat the US on the PISA is Vietnam, where the average income of a citizen is $5,070 yearly, compared with $53,470 for the US.

The results of the 2015 exam, released Tuesday, again support Trump's claims. The US remained flat in reading and science scores but declined 11 points in average math score, once again raising the question of global competitiveness of the US educational system.

When looking at a comparable sample of countries that participated in the PISA exam in both 2012 (when the test was most recently administered) and 2015, the US ranking fell to 35th from 28th in math.

France: Decomposing In Front Of Our Eyes

Four officers were injured (two badly burned) when around 15 "youths" (Muslim gang-members) swarmed their cars and hurled rocks and firebombs at them. Police were aggrieved when the minister of interior called the attackers "little wild ones." Police and opposition politicians replied that the attackers were not "little wild ones but criminals who attacked police to kill."

Two students at a vocational training school in Calais attacked a teacher, and one fractured the teacher's jaw and several teeth -- because the teacher had asked one of the students to get back to work.

"This is a warning. These young people did not attack the school by chance; they wanted to attack the institution, to attack the State." — Yacine, 21, a student at the University of Paris II.

The riot, which lasted for four nights, broke out after the arrest of a driver who did not stop when asked to by a policeman.

Immigration Group Shielding Known Gang Members And Blocking Trump From “Deportation Database”

With President-elect Trump’s promise to deport criminal illegal immigrants with records involving gang activity and violence, many pro-immigrant groups are concerned that he will cast too wide of a net. So, they are attempting to block Trump from being able to gain access to the CalGang database, California’s extensive records on known gang members, many of whom are undocumented immigrants.

It seems that this group would prefer these criminals to run rampant, rather than allow Trump to curb immigration and attempt to address the blowback from unlimited migration, and in influx of crime that has followed sketchy border policy over the past several decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Okay, so they're illegal immigrant criminals, but we NEED them to vote Democratic!"

Creating the Narrative: Blaming Russia for Hillary’s Loss

We have already seen a tremendous amount of finger-pointing by the mainstream media (MSM) at the alternative/independent news media of being “complicit with Russian propaganda” regarding the presidential election. SHTFplan.com and several hundred other websites and blogs are implicated by the MSM as taking orders directly from Russia.

I take artistic license and hereby dub the MSM as being “Marxist State Media,” with the term being inclusive of the Television and Newspaper outlets. The term also includes the endless online Marxist proselytizing found on Facebook, Google (Zuckerberg owns it; therefore, Zuckerberg directs it), and other sites in the name of “social justice” or “benefit to the community.”

The Arabic-language al-Hadas news website quoted unnamed informed sources as saying on Tuesday that the negotiations are meant to help US spies, including an intelligence officer involved in battle arrangement for the terrorists and an informant named Balal Abdel Karim, leave the Aleppo city.

Earlier on Tuesday, media sources disclosed that a large number of militants have been negotiating secretly with government officials in Aleppo to surrender themselves and leave the city.

The Arabic language al-Watan newspaper reported that continued defeats of Jeish al-Fatah and devastating advances of the Syrian army troops in the Eastern districts of Aleppo city have widen rifts amongst militant groups.

Bill Holter: Every Society is Only 72 Hours From Pure Anarchy (Video)

It is often said that at any given moment, any society is only 72 hours away from complete anarchy. Why? Because even in the most affluent societies, there isn’t much more than a three day supply of food available. Once food runs out, economic conditions can deteriorate so quickly that they rival scenes found in big Hollywood blockbusters like Mad Max. Look at Venezuela for example, where people have been breaking into zoos, and killing the animals to eat for food. 

Don’t expect to hear it from our woefully dishonest mainstream media, aka the "fake media," but right now in the United States it is estimated that over 15 million teenagers have traded sexual acts on at least one occasion just so they can eat. Some “recovery” Obama talks about isn’t it? Just think, the country isn't even in a “crisis” yet (assuming that like Obama, you don't consider 15 million teenagers trading sexual acts for food a "crisis), but the key word there is yet.

Journalists Struggle To Define ‘Fake News’ Even As They Declare War On It

In the weeks following Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in last month’s election, liberal journalists have launched an all-out assault on “fake news,” which some have blamed for the disconnect between political journalists and everyday Americans.

But many of those same journalists seem unable to agree on a consistent definition of what “fake news” is, oftentimes pushing leading conservative and alternative media organizations that provide ideological balance in the public forum under the same “fake news” umbrella alongside websites whose entire purpose is generating viral hoaxes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those pushing the viral hoaxes are supporting the government and corporate media's campaign to demonize the Independent Media (poison the well).

As for struggling with a definition of "fake news", the problem is that the presstitutes and whorespondents cannot admit the real definition, which is anything contrary to the official US Government and corporate dogma!

Bahrain authorities block Al Jazeera from GCC summit

Al Jazeera journalist Jamal Elshayyal was refused entry at Bahrain International Airport on Tuesday even though AJMN had followed all necessary procedures and submitted all requested documents to the relevant authorities on time.

"We applied for accreditation well before the deadline, submitting the names and passports as requested," Elshayyal said in Qatar's capital, Doha, after his return.

"I flew out to Manama this morning and upon reaching the immigration counter, I filled out the required form specifying I was a journalist and I was there to cover the summit.

"I was asked to sit on the side by the immigration officer who later informed me the Ministry of Information said Al Jazeera was not allowed to cover the event and I was rejected entry."

Sherif Mansour, Middle East and North Africa coordinator for the Committee to Protect Journalists, said he did not have details on the incident but noted the Gulf kingdom's track record on press freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy is lucky; the Bahraini government has a nasty reputation with regard to press access.

And not only have peaceful Bahraini protestors been jailed, tortured in order to confess to crimes they did not commit and have received extraordinarily long sentences; but also, the first responders who cared for them have been jailed, tortured to confess to crimes they did not commit, and received extraordinarily long prison sentences.

The Al-Khalifa monarchy is sitting on a power keg, when all that peaceful protesters have asked the government to do is establish a constitutional monarchy.

But there most likely be a point where the protests go from peaceful to violent, and even calling in the Saudi military, as the Bahraini government has done several years back, will not work.

Before that happens, I sure as heck hope that the US Navy is deliberating where in the Middle East, the 5th Fleet could call home, as any new Bahraini government would find itself very hostile to the US government, as the US government has enabled the sitting Bahraini government with what are called "dual use" weapons.

Guess Who’s Bombing the Crap Out of Libya

Twice in November 2016, the Benghazi Revolutionaries Shura Council, or BRSC?—?a group with ties to Al Qaeda?—?published photos of United Arab Emirates Air Force AT-802 and Reaper-style drones in the sky over the Ganfouda area of Benghazi in eastern Libya.

On Nov. 2, 2016, an S-100 Camcopter drone performed a reconnaissance mission over this district two hours before a Reaper or similar unmanned aerial vehicle carried out an air strike on a residential area.

Ten days later, an Air Tractor belonging to the UAEAF struck the same area, killing at least four civilians including two children?—?and injuring another child.

Drones launched four others air strikes in Ganfouda later the same day.
Evidence is mounting that the UAE is indiscriminately bombing militant strongholds in Libya. And civilians are caught in the crossfire.

US Officials: Al-Qaeda’s Loss in Aleppo Is Also America’s Loss

The increasingly public re-branding of America’s war in Syria as a proxy war against Russia has suited a lot of officials, particularly in the Pentagon, who see a new Cold War as a ticket to a bigger budget. With Russia’s fighting focusing on al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front, this Russo-centric view has seen the administration realigning US interests more directly with al-Qaeda.

Embarrassing as America’s realignment toward al-Qaeda is, officials see the defeat of the al-Qaeda-dominated rebels in Aleppo as an even bigger blow, presenting the loss of Aleppo as Russia’s victory and America’s loss, in addition to being al-Qaeda’s loss.

This “loss” is being presented by current officials as potentially hindering President-elect Donald Trump’s policy choices going forward, though since Trump was not in favor of backing al-Qaeda, or backing Syrian rebels in general, it probably makes his go-to plan of moving toward fighting ISIS even simpler to sell to the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now, the alleged "bad guys", ISIS and Al-Qaeda, are the US government's friends and allies, in a continued, futile effort to regime change Damascus?!?

This is completely insane!!

Beijing Calls on US to Refuse Taiwan President Entry During Diplomatic Trip

Days after President-elect Donald Trump riled Beijing by speaking to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, China has asked Washington to not let Tsai visit the US on her way to Guatemala. China maintains a rocky relationship with Tsai, as they believe she may push for full independence of the autonomous nation.

Trump’s talk with Tsai on Friday was the first communication between a Taiwanese head of state and an American President-elect or President since the Taiwan Relations Act was passed in 1979, under US President Jimmy Carter.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi blamed Taiwan for the conversation just hours after it happened, stating that, "This is just the Taiwan side engaging in a petty action, and cannot change the 'one China' structure already formed by the international community…I believe that it won't change the longstanding 'one China' policy of the United States government."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi: The Chinese are very much admired for looking at the long term, in terms of how its government creates its strategies for moving forward economically and politically.

Your criticism of Taiwan's President's congratulatory call to President-Elect Trump, coupled with your demand that President Tsai not be allowed to visit the US on her way to Guatemala, does not seem to be in character with those attributes.

What is Carrageenan?

Although derived from a natural source, it appears to be particularly destructive to the digestive system, triggering an immune response similar to that your body has when invaded by pathogens like Salmonella. The result: “It predictably causes inflammation, which can lead to ulcerations and bleeding,” explains veteran researcher Joanne Tobacman, MD, associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of Illinois School of Medicine at Chicago. She says the food ingredient irritates by activating an immune response that dials up inflammation. Her previous work showed a concerning connection between carrageenan and gastrointestinal cancer in lab animals, and she’s involved with ongoing research funded through the National Institutes of Health that is investigating carrageenan’s effect on ulcerative colitis and other diseases like diabetes.

WAR ON THE HOMELESS: CITIES ALL OVER AMERICA ARE PASSING LAWS MAKING IT ILLEGAL TO FEED AND SHELTER THOSE IN NEED

If you want to be a “Good Samaritan” to the homeless in your community, you might want to check and see if it is legal first.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The way things are going in this country, it is not too far fetched to imagine that the "crime" of homelessness will soon be punishable by as quick a trial and execution as is legally possible, because state and federal prison facilities are crowded to beyond capacity.

And bless Pastor Grover and bless Patapsco United Methodist Church, for their ministry in this way; I hope that the attorney who takes this case for them, regarding that 12,000 fine, wipes the floor with the City Council of Dundalk, Maryland, and that there is a reasonable answer found, including a place for the homeless to stay, and have their basic human needs met.

It is apparent to me that the mayor of Dundalk needs to have a conference call with the Governor of Utah, and right the heck now, because by the end 0f 2015, Utah reduced their number of homeless by 91%:

BEX ALERT - Meet the people who believe the Earth is flat

When Malachi Henderson went skydiving a few weeks ago, he noticed that the Earth looked flat, even from the plane. He mentioned it to the pilot. "The higher you get, the flatter it looks," the pilot replied. Henderson wasn't surprised: The pilot's response was evidence of something he'd been researching for years.

Henderson is one of a growing movement of Americans who believe that the Earth is flat. They refer to themselves as flat Earthers.

Flat Earthers have a wide range of convictions. Some come to the movement from a religious place, others from a scientific one. But most believe in one simple principle: that NASA and everyone involved in space exploration are liars and that there is a massive conspiracy to hide the fact that the Earth is flat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is yet another "poison the well" hoax planted on the internet by the government so that the corporate media can denounce all independent media as kooks and nuts. This is in the same category as such planted hoaxes as fake Apollo Moon landings, chemtrails, HAARP, no plane at the Pentagon, etc.

BRAZIL CRISIS: RIO RIOT POLICE BATTLE UNPAID WORKERS

Brazilian police have clashed with anti-austerity demonstrators in Rio amid a budget crisis in the state.

Many protesters were public workers who have not been paid in months.

Police used tear gas and stun grenades and at one point fired rubber bullets at demonstrators from inside a church near the state assembly building.

The clashes took place as legislators considered a range of spending cuts in an effort to tackle a huge deficit in Rio de Janeiro's state budget.

Hundreds of public sector workers had gathered outside the assembly building to protest against the measures.

During the clashes, police officers entered a nearby church and fired rubber bullets from a window. The Rio diocese protested against this "invasion" and said it would investigate.

Several people - both demonstrators and police - were injured.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will not end well; the Brazilian government is broke, and out of options.

Any potential international loans, to prop up Brazil's economy from the outside, will come at usurious interest rates, and be difficult to pay back; and even then, if Temer is successful here, it will not fix the fundamental problems a broken economy, and of corruption and graft within the world of his elites. As reported at theeconomist.com on 1 December of this year:

Russia pipeline is security 'threat', US diplomat says

Russia’s Nord Stream II gas pipeline is a threat to European security, a US diplomat has said, amid calls for the European Commission to intervene.
Adam Shub, the deputy US ambassador to the EU, in Brussels on Tuesday (6 December), mentioned the Russian-German project amid other instruments he said Russia was using to “create division” in Europe and to erode “shared transatlantic values”.

EU Commission has stalled on appeals for a legal assessment.

He said the armed conflict in Ukraine was “just the front line” in the “malign action”, which extended also to the EU and the Western Balkans.

“There are [Russian] attempts to influence the policy debate, support for political parties, we know that, in the European Parliament, for NGOs … attempts to acquire assets on the energy front, Nord Stream - these are threats to Europe and to transatlantic security”, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shub's codswallop, in denouncing Russia for doing everything the US government does, in terms of providing loans, supporting and attempting to influence various candidates and organisations who echo the US government narrative, demonstrates that the US government has, in basketball parlance, "got no game", in terms of being able to undo this deal.

This deal makes absolute sense for the German government and the German people, in order to keep fuel costs low.

In his petulant and sophomoric rant at the Ceps think tank conference, Shub comes off as almost thoroughly unhinged in his excoriating criticism of the deal, yet offers absolutely no concrete suggestions of what the German government "SHOULD" do, to get a better deal elsewhere.

And I would politely suggest to Mr. Shub that after last year's revelations of the fact that the US was spying on Angela Merkel and her ministers, neither she, nor any potential successor, is going to be very enthusiastic about listening to ANYTHING the US government has to say.

Obama administration spied on German media as well as its government

Dallas Mayor Files Lawsuit To Block Withdrawals From "Insolvent" Police Pension After "Run On The Bank"

Last week, Dallas Mayor Michael Rawlings sent a scathing letter to the Dallas Police and Fire Pension (DPFP) Board demanded that withdrawals be halted immediately until the "solvency and actuarial soundness of the Pension System is restored." That said, the Mayor's request was seemingly ignored as he has now filed a lawsuit with the Dallas District Court to force the pension board to halt withdrawals amid a "run on the bank."

Within the suit, Rawlings notes that $500 million in lump-sum withdrawals have been made from the DPFP since August 2016 with $80 million of that amount being withdrawn in the first 2 weeks of November alone. The suit continues on to allege that "this mass exodus of DROP funds amounts to a “run on the bank” and is exacerbating the financial peril of the Pension System as a whole."

Experts fear that all Corsa D and E models built since 2006 are a potential fire risk, with dozens of motorists reporting flames seeping through their dashboards.

The Corsa, which is Britain's second best-selling car, is said to have heater wiring susceptible to heat damage, like the Zafira.

Trump lays out non-interventionist U.S. military policy

President-elect Donald Trump laid out a U.S. military policy on Tuesday that would avoid interventions in foreign conflicts and instead focus heavily on defeating the Islamic State militancy.

In the latest stop on a "thank you" tour of states critical to his Nov. 8 election win, Trump introduced his choice for defense secretary, General James Mattis, to a large crowd in this city near the Fort Bragg military base, which has deployed soldiers to 90 countries around the world.

"We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn't be involved with," Trump said. "Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS, and we will."

Trump's rhetoric was similar to what he said during the election campaign when he railed against the war in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

what Trump is saying absolutely makes sense.

But what he is going to have to do, in implementation of this policy, is make sure that waste and corruption in the procurement process is stamped out as completely as possible, as it is an ongoing problem.

Nasa's Cassini spacecraft has sent back its first set of images from its first dangerous flyby of Saturn's rings.

The probe completed a series of orbits passing closer than ever before by some of Saturn's icy halos earlier this week.

The new images include an up-close look at the mid-sized moon Tethys, detailed views of Saturn’s atmosphere from high above the northern hemisphere and new pictures of the rings themselves.
