ConocoPhillips Fires 10% Of Global Workforce, Warns Of "Dramatic Downturn" To Oil Industry

Where the great oil crash hits close to home for most Americans, is when firms such as Houston based ConocoPhillips announce that the E&P giant is about to terminate 10%, or 1,800 people, of its global workforce, in the next several weeks as it copes with low oil prices. "Our industry is undergoing a dramatic downturn, which has caused us to look at our future workforce needs. As we have assessed the implications of lower prices on our business, we’ve made the difficult decision that workforce reductions will be necessary.”

WTI Extends Crash To 10% After API Inventories Surge Most In 5 Months

After the worst day since last November's OPEC meeting, WTI crude is falling further tonight as API reported a huge 7.6 million barrel inventory build. This is the biggest build (compared to DOE data) since early April! WTI Crude is now down 9.85% on the day - that is a bigger drop (close to close) than the Nov OPEC meeting drop and is not matched back to 2008/9's collapse.

HIDDEN CAM: Hillary's National Marketing Director Illegally Accepting Foreign Contribution


In a five-minute video compilation, Veritas showed senior members of Mrs. Clinton’s team appearing to accept a donation from a Canadian women at Mrs. Clinton’s campaign announcement rally in exchange for hats and pins bearing the candidate’s name. The staff members — Molly Barker and Erin Tibe — express awareness that they cannot accept a donation from a foreigner but agree to allow the Canadian woman to give the money to an American citizen standing next to her who made the transaction on her behalf.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Or they could have donated to the Clinton Foundation!

Israel is “Targeting Christian-Palestinian Communities in the West Bank”. Confiscating Lives, One Hectare at a Time

The expansion of Israel’s ‘separation barrier’ is targeting Christian-Palestinian communities in the West Bank, reports Noreen Sadik.

On 17 August, Issa al-Shatleh, of Beit Jala, Palestine, started his day with news that Israeli soldiers were on the land that had belonged to his family for hundreds of years. When he arrived, he found ‘they were destroying the land, and cutting my ancient olive trees, some hundreds of years old’. ‘They came without a warning,’ he said.

And it is not just al-Shatleh’s land that is being confiscated. Close to 3 hectares of private land were razed that morning and 45 trees, some of them over 100 years old, were uprooted. As landowners tried to stop the destruction, violent clashes broke out, sending al-Shatleh’s brother to the hospital.

Three-year-old ultra-Orthodox Jewish children told 'the non-Jews' are 'evil' in worksheet produced by London school

Emily Green, who used to teach at the same Beis Rochel girls’ secondary school and now chairs the Gesher EU organisation which supports ultra-Orthodox Jews who want to leave the community, said she used to teach at Beis Rochel, part of the Satmer Hasidic sect.

"It's not uncommon to be taught non-Jewish people are evil in ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools. It is part of the prayers, teaching, their whole ethos,” she said.

Describing it as a form of “indoctrination”, Ms Green added: “Psychologically, you become so afraid of the world out there after being taught how dangerous and bad and evil non-Jews are, that it makes it harder to leave.”

Washington’s Financial Currency War on China: The Eclipsing of the US Dollar by the Yuan

The Chinese are in the process of displacing the monopoly of the US dollar. They are dropping their US Treasury bonds, stockpiling gold reserves, and opening regional distribution banks for their own national currency. This will give them easier access to capital markets and insulate them from financial manipulation by Washington and Wall Street.

The West Point Professor Who Contemplated a Coup

On Monday, West Point law professor William C. Bradford resigned after The Guardian reported that he had allegedly inflated his academic credentials. Bradford made headlines last week, when the editors of the National Security Law Journal denounced a controversial article by him in their own summer issue:

As the incoming Editorial Board, we want to address concerns regarding Mr. Bradford’s contention that some scholars in legal academia could be considered as constituting a fifth column in the war against terror; his interpretation is that those scholars could be targeted as unlawful combatants. The substance of Mr. Bradford’s article cannot fairly be considered apart from the egregious breach of professional decorum that it exhibits. We cannot “unpublish” it, of course, but we can and do acknowledge that the article was not presentable for publication when we published it, and that we therefore repudiate it with sincere apologies to our readers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good! What he was suggesting would have made an absolute mockery of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

But don't think for a millisecond that this guy won't be scooped up in the waiting buzzard wings of the Neocons; I suspect we haven't heard the last from this guy, and not by a long shot.

Texas police bash ‘unethical’ news station for airing video of cops killing unarmed suspect

Texas police upset that a local news station aired footage of Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies fatally shooting a man with hands up want the public to express outrage — at the news station.

Gilbert Flores, 41, can be seen in the cell phone video aired by KSAT standing outside his San Antonio-area home during a domestic violence call. He raises his hands over his head then abruptly crumples to the ground after he is apparently shot by deputies.

“They just cold-blooded shot that [expletive],” the man holding the camera says.

Both the county D.A. and the sheriff’s office have opened investigations into the shooting. Both deputies, Greg Vasquez and Robert Sanchez, are on paid administrative leave, KSAT reports.

But the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department is angry about the news station’s decision to air the entire video, which also appears to show officers handcuffing Flores’ lifeless body.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Commissioner of the Bexar Police Department; if you taught police restraint, and how to diffuse, or talk down a potentially dangerous situation, you wouldn't have this kind of footage to deal with in the first place.

But please, don't you dare condemn the messenger!

This happened; it was real; deal with it.

PUTIN SAYS DUMP DOLLAR

Russian President Vladimir Putin has drafted a bill that aims to eliminate the US dollar and the euro from trade between CIS countries.

This means the creation of a single financial market between Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and other countries of the former Soviet Union.

“This would help expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and thus create preconditions for greater liquidity of domestic currency markets”, said a statement from Kremlin.

The bill would also help to facilitate trade in the region and help to achieve macro-economic stability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is spot on with this analysis; but I bet it is making Wall Street and the big banks squirm right now.

SOUTH DAKOTA DROPS TEACHING HIGH SCHOOLERS ABOUT AMERICAN REVOLUTION, FOUNDING DOCUMENTS

??North Dakota students may or may not learn about the first 100 years of America’s history.
Important topics like the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War and the framing of the U.S. Constitution may simply be ignored by teachers under new history standards approved by the state’s board of education last Monday, the Argus Leader reports.

Current standards do not allow history teachers to delve into topics before the Civil War, so the new standards open up the door but don’t require teachers to cover early American history, as many would have preferred. The recently adopted history standards are set to take effect in 2016-17 school year and whittle the current standards from 117 pages to 44.

“Our current history standards do not even give an option as to whether it’s comprehensive or modern,” board president Don Kirkegaard told the news site. “It’s strictly modern.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is insane, and an insult to our history; it means that the reasons our country was founded just won't be taught, just in case these students might want to look at the situations in British government at that time, and compare it to the situations we see in US government today.

Heaven forbid that they should indulge in such a thing, and might be able to use critical thinking to come to a logical conclusion here!!

Under Investigation: CENTCOM Distorted Analysis of ISIS Bombing Campaign

An investigation is underway into U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) after a civilian analyst from the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) accused them of distorting and reworking conclusions regarding their bombing campaign against ISIS.

The distorted analysis was prepared for government officials and even President Obama.

The investigation is reported by the New York Times as being an ‘unusual move’, beyond everyday intelligence disputes.

FLASHBACK - New York Stock Exchange sold to derivatives company in $8bn takeover

The New York Stock Exchange called time on two centuries of independence on Thursday, agreeing to an $8.2bn takeover that will hand control of the icon of American capitalism to an Atlanta-based energy trader.

The stock exchange's holding company, NYSE Euronext, has agreed to an offer of $33.12 a share in cash and stock from IntercontinentalExchange (ICE). ICE was founded in 2000, NYSE in 1817. The combined company would have headquarters in both ICE's home of Atlanta and in New York.

Cops Went to Wrong House, Shot Owner, Killed His Dog, and Even Shot a Fellow Officer, Too

This sounds like a joke headline from a bad movie or something… but no, sadly, this is what is being reported today out of DeKalb County, Georgia.

Three officers responded to a burglary call Monday night. Unfortunately, they responded to the wrong house. Once the gunfire stopped, the owner was shot in the leg, his dog was dead, and apparently according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, one of the cops was shot in the hip, most likely by his fellow officer.

This is what happens when people randomly call 9-1-1 to report suspicious activity these days. The caller described the house, but the cops went to the wrong one. When they went into the guy’s kitchen through an unlocked rear entrance, they were met with his dog and promptly shot and killed the animal. Then the owner came out and he got shot. No one has clarified when exactly the officer was hit in this mess.

Despite Global Ban, Saudi-Led Forces Kill Dozens in Yemen Using US-Made Cluster Bombs

Human Rights Watch has accused Saudi Arabia of using U.S.-made cluster munition rockets in at least seven attacks in the Yemeni city of Hajjah between late April and mid-July. Dozens of civilians were killed or wounded, both during the attacks and later, when they picked up unexploded submunitions that detonated.

YEMEN’S HIDDEN WAR: HOW THE SAUDI-LED COALITION IS KILLING CIVILIANS

In the Islamic concept of qadar, your divine destiny is inescapable. If you try to cheat death it will find you. For two women on a dusty road in mid-June on the southwest corner of the Arabian Peninsula, their repeated attempts to dodge fate ended in tragic failure.

Leaving the war zone of Yemen’s southern port city of Aden on June 10, the women headed north in a Toyota Cressida driven by a male relative. The pair were escaping the violence that had already turned entire streets in Aden to rubble, left hundreds dead and thousands of civilians under siege, struggling to find food, water and medical care.

Driving ahead of them was a family of four in a Hilux pick-up truck, slowing at the numerous checkpoints along the road and weaving around potholes in the asphalt. Between 4:30 and 5 p.m., seemingly from nowhere, the first missile struck. The Hilux flipped into a cartwheeling fireball, killing the two children and their parents inside.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would POLITELY like to remind both the Saudi and US governments that the indiscriminate murdering of civilians is a war crime.

Putin Pushes to Dump the Dollar

Over the past week it was revealed that China is gradually dumping billions of dollars in US treasuries. Truth be told though, China isn’t the only country interested in unhinging itself from the dollar system. The global currency war has begun in earnest, and now Russia is getting in on the action.

Putin recently announced that he was drafting a bill that would remove the dollar and the euro from trade agreements between Russia’s closest trading partners in the CIS. The CIS is a regional association of former Soviet States, which includes Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, and Azerbaijan. By creating a single marketplace between all of these countries, it would, according to the Kremlin “help expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and thus create preconditions for greater liquidity of domestic currency markets.”

North Dakota Just Authorized Police Use of “Less-than-Lethal” Weaponized Drones

How do you feel about police in modern America using tasers and tear gas against the citizenry? How is that working out for us?

Well, now the state of North Dakota has granted police the ability to legally deploy taser and tear gas-equipped drones against the people.

HB 1328 was originally supposed to be about placing stricter limits on law enforcement use of drones but… nope. Thanks to a nice little amendment that got tacked on by a drone lobbyist, North Dakota has officially passed a bill allowing the cops to add weaponized drones to their arsenal.

Over 150 Students Walk out of High School over Transgender Student’s Use of Girl’s Locker Room

Senior Lila Perry, a transgendered high school student who identifies himself as female since the age of 13 even though he was born male and has all male parts, wants to be able to use the girls’ locker room during gym class. In protest over the school’s decision to allow Perry to use the locker room after Perry refused a private room, over 150 students walked out of Hillsboro High School for two hours yesterday.

The high school offered Perry a private, gender-neutral restroom, but Perry turned it down and insists on using the girls’ locker room instead or nothing.

“I wasn’t hurting anyone and I didn’t want to feel segregated out. I didn’t want to be in the gender neutral bathroom. I am girl, I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom,” Perry told KMOV. Perry says he knows he isn’t making anyone uncomfortable and the protest is just ignorance and bigotry.

MIGRANTS, IMMIGRANTS OR REFUGEES? DEBUNKING DEHUMANIZING PROPAGANDA

Well guess what — it’s too late! The crisis already happened and it’s the biggest global displacement since World War II.?

United Kingdom — DISCLAIMER: I just saw a photo taken inside a recently discovered lorry that contained 71 decomposing bodies. And I am angry — very angry.

No one really knows how those people ended up in the lorry found in Austria, but police are claiming to have since arrested some of the trafficking gang. It is almost impossible to imagine what strips someone of their humanity to such a point that they knowingly load 59 men, eight women, and four children into a giant metal box with no ventilation and wire the doors shut.

The assumption so far is that many of those found dead were Syrian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, it is the US enabled and fought wars which is causing this massive displacement.

And these people, desperate to get to some point of safety, are simply "collateral damage" to the US government.

DHS INVESTORS ARE SENDING POLICE TO TRAIN IN ISRAEL

At least 300 high-ranking sheriffs and police from agencies large and small – from New York and Maine to Orange County and Oakland, California – have traveled to Israel for privately funded seminars in what is described as counterterrorism techniques.

Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Terrance W. Gainer called Israel “the Harvard of antiterrorism” after taking part in a 2005 trip sponsored by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). Capt. Brad Virgoe of the Orange County Sheriff's Department in California called the 2013 session he took part in an “amazing experience,” recalling visits to checkpoints in Eilat at the Israeli-Egyptian border and in the West Bank near Bethlehem.

Don't forget what happened in Ferguson! The Ferguson police chief was trained in Israel!

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) also sends police to Israel and hosts Israeli police in America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, terrific; now we can further expect DHS investigators to treat Americans just as kindly and humanely as the IDF treats Palestinian!

CNN has scheduled a phone call at 5 p.m. EDT on Tuesday with the GOP presidential campaigns to discuss changes to the criteria determining which candidates will get to appear on main stage at the next debate later this month, The Washington Times has learned.

The call is the outgrowth of negotiations between CNN and the Republican National Committee, which sanctions the party’s debates, to address concerns raised by the GOP’s only female candidate, Carly Fiorina, that the original criteria wrongly has kept her form the stage even as she is rising in the polls.

CA Department of Public Health Takes “See No Evil, Hear No Evil" Approach to Nursing Home Abuse

In a disgraceful last minute effort to kill AB 348 (Brown) – a CANHR sponsored bill that would have set timelines for investigations of abuse and neglect cases reported by nursing homes – the California Department of Public Health continued a long tradition of siding with perpetrators of abuse against their victims by taking an official position opposing the bill. As a result, this critical bill died in the Senate Appropriations Committee.

The Department receives thousands of reports of suspected abuse and neglect from nursing homes each year and often puts the most serious cases of mistreatment on the bottom of its investigation file. Some investigations are delayed for years, leaving residents at risk and sending a terrible message to operators and the public that abuse and neglect are tolerated. AB 348 was introduced to fix this problem by requiring the Department to complete investigations within 60 days beginning in July 2018.

New S-500 Anti-Missile Missile Will Seal Russia Airspace

Some sectors of U.S. Think Tankland – with their cozy CIA ties – are now hedging their bets about Cold War 2.0, out of fear that they have misjudged what really happens on the geopolitical chessboard.

A shooting war is not exactly a brilliant idea. Russia’s S-500 anti-missile missiles and anti-aircraft missiles can intercept any existing ICBM, cruise missile, or aircraft. S-500s travel at 15,480 miles an hour; reach an altitude of 115 miles; travel horizontally 2,174 miles; and can intercept up to ten incoming missiles. They simply cannot be stopped by any American anti-missile system.

Hillary and Obama Own the Tragic Libyan Exodus

snip: The biggest misconception about NATO’s intervention,” wrote Kuperman, “is that it saved lives and benefited Libya and its neighbors.” In fact, Qaddafi did not attack peaceful protesters. The rebels started the violence, and Qaddafi responded. Barely six weeks after the rebellion started, Qaddafi had all but suppressed it at the cost of about one thousand lives.

Then Clinton and Obama blessed NATO’s intervention, one that prolonged the war seven months and cost roughly seven thousand more lives. During the insurrection, the Obama administration had been funneling money to Qatar to help arm Libyans rebels. As the New York Times reported, “The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government.”

According to Italian media reports, Kamara was arrested on Sunday after he was found entering Mineo with a bag containing a phone that allegedly belonged to the victims. His pants were allegedly stained with blood.

Because of incomplete and unreported data from the Exchanges, the IRS is unable to ensure that taxpayers claiming the PTC purchased insurance through an Exchange and properly reconciled APTCs received. However, the IRS has developed processes to identify erroneous PTC claims. Our review of these processes identified that 79 of the 80 reject code conditions and 16 of the 20 PTC error codes were working as intended. Computer programming errors resulted in the reject and PTC error codes not always identifying tax returns with the particular error condition. The IRS plans to make programming corrections.

Putin to Get $3 Billion From US Taxpayers After Ukraine Bond Debacle

Putin did not loan the money to Ukraine as we know it now, he loaned the money to a Ukraine that was governed by Russian-backed Viktor Yanukovych. Ukrainian finance minister Natalie Jaresko offered the same restructuring terms to Russia that it offered to Franklin Templeton and T. Rowe. In effect, Jaresko was attempting to tell Vladimir Putin that Ukraine would allow him to take a 20% upfront loss on the $3 billion he loaned to Yanukovych who was overthrown by the current Ukrainian government with whom Moscow is effectively at war. As you might imagine, Putin was not at all interested.
Who’s going to pay him, you ask? Probably the US taxpayer. Here’s BofAML:
The $3bn Russian bond is included in debt restructuring, but Russia will not participate in debt restructuring and will either be paid $3bn from reserves in December or there will be a political decision to agree on an extension, likely without haircuts.

Forbes Fail! Western media outlet publishes fake Russian troop casualty article, and its zombie readers actually believe it

Due to a lack of actual evidence (i.e. photos, videos, something, anything) to show that some 1,000 to 50,000 Russian troops have invaded Ukraine some 37 plus times and counting…Forbes has just said screw it, and is now printing anything they find on the web that says Russian military is operating in Ukraine.

Forum posts, tweets, blog comments, post-it notes…anything to try and garner support for the magazine’s MIC sponsors. More weapon sales means more money for the rich 1% Forbes guys.

Calling on their trusted Russophobe scaremonger contributor Paul R. Gregory to provide some “Russian aggression” goodies, the Kiev consultant and Hoover Institute sponsored “academic” came up with a suspicious, little known web site, owned by a shell company in Ukraine, printing a fake Russian military casualty story…no sources, no research, no fact checking, no google search…nada – nothing.

I have received many emails regarding the various articles I have written about the problems with the current economic system of being forced to borrow all currency at interest from a privately-owned central bank.

I have been asked to collect all those articles into a single page to make it easier for people to send to their friends, and this collection is the result.

West Spurning Chinese Parade Is Stupidity Masquerading as Diplomacy

President Vladimir Putin will be in Beijing, as well as leaders of the four Central Asian ‘stans’ that are part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). South Korean President Park Geun-hye, South African President Jacob Zuma and Pakistan’s President Mamnoon Hussain will also be present.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan won’t (he was officially invited, and declined). The US, Germany and Canada will send only embassy functionaries. France and Italy at least will send their foreign ministers. The only head of state or government from the all-sorts-of-plague-ravaged EU will be Czech President Milos Zeman.
Whatever the spin, the fact is the US State Department proverbially resorted to mob tactics pressuring South Korean Geun-hye not to go.
The bottom line: neither the US nor the EU – the once hegemonic West – along with Japan, are sending their top political leaders.
The West’s so-called political “elites” are trying hard to exercise a monopoly on diplomatic stupidity...

'Foreign Policy' Asks: Is Russian Literature Covertly Invading Your Mind?

Edward Lucas and other idiots have been waiting for months for Russia to invade the entire world. But the invasion has not come. Instead, it is now evident that Putin will resurrect the Soviet Union by brainwashing the world with so-called Russian “culture”.
The United States knows this trick well and uses it with spectacular success to distract from its drone campaigns and CIA torture facilities. Who can deny the power of SpongeBob Squarepants and his subterranean hijinks? Now try to imagine SpongeBob in Russian, book form, and you will begin to understand why responsible westerners are worried.
Case in point: The Russian government is supporting efforts to make contemporary Russian literature available to western readers. Or as Foreign Policy explains: the Kremlin is backing an ambitious effort to make the B-sides of the Russian literary canon more accessible to a global audience. Is it a boon for cultural understanding – or propaganda?

Shock therapy: Notes on the humanitarian invasion of Europe

Globalization has already spiritually or physically destroyed tenths of countries, New World Order has annihilated almost all Arabic worlds and neo-colonialism is exploiing what is left of traditional and humanistic societies. Populations are again reduced to slavery by the big corporations that rule the world with global bureaucracies: Ikea or Nike pay their worker 12 Euros a month. You don't need to be a communist to understand these facts; you can be a libertarian or what we called in former French civilization a Honnête Homme.
We would need knights to defend us from that mob. But as Edmund Burke wrote once about our barbaric bourgeois revolution in France, the age of chivalry is gone.

Europe turns into cesspool of the world. The United States of Europe: A few decades to go

The American propaganda machine never stops trumpeting about the imminent Russian threat. The American political elite portrays Russia as a state that threatens Europe in the first place. With this pretext in mind, the USA and NATO continue to militarize Europe. European populations do not show any protests, let along governments. Few people in Europe realize that it is not Russia that they should fear.
Europe is facing the danger of Washington-generated Islamization that will deprive Europe of cultural and Christian identity. Why not throw good old Europe into the melting pot of nationalities and religions so that it is easier to control it?

Polonium-210 and Yasser Arafat's death: Mystery of the century

What killed Palestinian hero Yasser Arafat? Eight years after his death, a high content of polonium-210 was found on Arafat's personal belongings. It appears that the mystery was solved, but questions still remain. Pravda.Ru spoke about it in an interview with academician Leonid Ilyin, who took part in the examination of Yasser Arafat's remains.
When Yasser Arafat was alive, some thought of him as a hero, whereas others considered him a terrorist. Arafat went down in history as a national hero of Palestine and one of the most prominent politicians of the 20th century.

‘Anti-gun stupidity’: Honolulu destroys $575G worth of police firearms

Second Amendment advocates are firing away at a decision by Honolulu officials to destroy $575,000 worth of perfectly good handguns in a move one critic called the “height of anti-gun stupidity.”

Some 2,300 Smith & Wesson 9 mm handguns, including at least 200 that are brand-new and in unopened boxes, were issued to the city’s police department. But with the 2,200-member force upgrading to lighter and less expensive Glock 17s, the guns were set to be permanently holstered. While it is customary throughout the country for departments to auction the guns to law-abiding citizens, including the police who once carried them, or donate them to another department, Honolulu opted to destroy them.

Ezra Klein Is Wrong: Gun Control Doesn’t Reduce Suicide Rates

Intent on never letting a good crisis go to waste, liberal pundits such as Vox’s Ezra Klein couldn’t seem to wait for the blood to dry after Wednesday morning’s horrific murder of two journalists in Virginia before trotting out their usual gun-control wish list. Notwithstanding the fact that President Obama’s gun-control measures wouldn’t have prevented the murders, Klein took to Twitter to make his case that gun control would reduce gun violence.

Best Case Analysis Shows National Debt is Unpayable

Let’s use only mathematics, no politics, to show how federal borrowing fails MATHEMATICALLY, thus it is a known, provable fraud scheme. This was written a few years ago when the national debt was $15 trillion, and it’s worse now, but 15 is an easy number for fact checking calculations.

When engineers have to do an analysis which is too complicated to control all the inputs, we assume all the inputs are controlled to “best case” and then we calculate if the problem can even be solved at all. If it can’t be solved under “best case” conditions, it can’t be solved at all, and anyone claiming they have it solved is pushing a fraud scheme.

Russia ready for any twist in West’s anti-Russian sanctions — FM

Lavrov said the European Union last September lauded Moscow’s contribution to the Ukrainian conflict settlement but later the same month introduced additional sanctions against Russia.
"We did not get a clear answer, when we asked them [the EU] whether it was their attitude to the political process," Lavrov said.
"It turned out later that the procedure of introducing these sanctions was closed, many presidents of prime ministers of the European Union’s members simply were not aware what Brussels was doing on their behalf. But let us put it aside," the top Russian diplomat said. "By the way, the authorities in Kiev openly state now that since Russia fails to implement the Minsk Accords, the sanctions from last September will be extended," Lavrov said. "I do not know whether this is what [Ukrainian President Petro] Poroshenko was trying to negotiate with [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel and [French President Francois] Hollande. We will see."

Death toll from riots outside Ukraine's Rada rises to three — National Guard

The death toll from Monday’s riots outside Ukraine’s parliament in Kiev rose to three when another serviceman died from injuries suffered in a grenade blast, the National Guard said on Tuesday.
"A soldier sustained serious fragmentation wounds during the explosion. For almost 24 hours, the young man was in a coma in a very difficult condition. However, the serious wounds were incompatible with life," the press service said. Earlier reports said two National Guard members died on Monday and on Tuesday.
Number of injured in Kiev clashes grows to 141 — Ukraine's Interior Ministry http://tass.ru/en/world/817802 The majority of them - 131 - are police officers and members of the National Guard, including 10 in grave condition, spokesman Artyom Shevchenko wrote on his Facebook page.

Russian security council chief: Nazism revived openly, cynically in Ukraine, Baltic states

"Currently, Nazism is being revived most openly and cynically in the Baltic countries and in Ukraine. Glorification of the pro-Nazi nationalist movements takes place, their views find more and more supporters among the local population," Patrushev said during his lecture at the St.Petersburg Marine Technical University.
According to him, the political leadership of Ukraine during the entire post-Soviet period has encouraged nationalist and anti-Russian sentiment of its citizens, and with the support of the United States such policy led to the forcible seizure of power by the opposition last year. The decisive role was played by the Right Sector ultra-nationalist group. "The people oriented towards the West and adhering to anti-Russian views came to power, and anti-Russian media intensified their activities in the country. The opinion of the other part of Ukrainian citizens was not heeded," Patrushev noted.

Russian lawmaker says Ukraine’s draft military doctrine is ‘challenge of aggression’

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Tuesday his government had referred a draft military doctrine to the National Security and Defence Council. "For the first time in the history of Ukraine’s independence, the draft military doctrine defines Russia as an enemy and aggressor," the premier said.
"The draft of Ukraine’s military doctrine is not a national security document, it is a documented challenge of aggression presented to the world and a proof evidencing inadequacy of the current Ukrainian authorities," Yarovaya told journalists.
"Ukraine is rapidly losing any signs of legal culture and common sense and is slipping into a marginal state policy," she said.
At the same time, she stressed that the people of Ukraine had always been and would always be a brotherly nation for the Russians. "No insane statements by the authors of the present-day Ukrainian tragedy will be able to change it," Yarovaya underscored.

For me 2015 began with a suicide. I was on my way to Berlin with an early train just after midnight on 1 January. About 8 am our connecting train from Hamburg stopped approximately 25 kilometres down the line because someone had apparently gotten up early that morning and travelled to a point in the middle of nowhere to jump in front of it. Since our train was approximately 45 minutes late, this person not only had to contemplate his way to the tracks but wait perhaps impatiently for the wheeled engine of his demise to do its work.

"It’s going to be better for you," they told us. "But we explained them that the people of the Dniester Republic had made this choice," Shevchuk stressed.
"People are grateful to Russia. They remember that the Russian military stopped a war that was unleashed against us back in 1992. The Russian troops have been guarding peace in the region since then. No blood is being spilled here any longer," the Dniester Republic’s leader said.

Ethnic activist and “Constitutional crusader” Glenn Greenwald demands lawlessness on immigration

I write this piece with a heavy heart. As I have previously written, I have long held a great deal of respect for the lawyer, constitutional expert, and brilliant polemicist Glenn Greenwald. Seen from Europe, his articulate defense of civil liberties and a peaceful foreign policy presented a tantalizing alternative of another America to that of the swaggering, neoconservative-dominated administration of George W. Bush. But, as time goes on, the evidence mounts that Greenwald is marked by ethnic biases, conscious or not, which lead him to engage in vicious attacks against Anglo-American identities and, most seriously, to condone illegal immigration that is enormously threatening to the traditional peoples of the West.

Farmers, affected by loss of Russian market, to go out to mass protests in Moldova

Moldovan agrarians, affected by the loss of the Russian market after Chisinau struck a trade agreement with the European Union, will join mass antigovernment protests due September 6, the leaders of organizations representing their interests said Tuesday.
"We called on the agrarians to go out to protests on September 6 to show we no longer want to put up with the state’s policy regarding the industry," Uniagroprotect chairman Alexander Slusar said. He said nearly half of the country’s agrarians will go bankrupt by the end of the year "to keep company to Moldovan Gastarbeiters who leave for Italy, Russia."
"Mass bankruptcies are to be expected. All is getting more expensive by 30-40%, most agricultural crops will yield on the average 60% less than last year due to the drought. In the current conditions, I think half of agrarians will go bankrupt," Slusar said.

Labour leadership: Jeremy Corbyn wants to weaken the Queen's power

The Labour leadership front-runner said he wanted the Royal Prerogative to be subject to a veto by MPs in the House of Commons.

The Royal Prerogative, a set of customary powers officially held by the Queen, is handed to government ministers to enable them to take decisions without the backing or consent of Parliament.

Powers include appointing and dismissing ministers, signing treaties, accrediting diplomats and include the power for a Prime Minister to declare war.

Mr Corbyn described it as "a very convenient way of bypassing parliament" at a leadership hustings last week and said Parliament must have the final say over whether they can be exercised.
