Ankara vows revenge as 7 Turkish soldiers killed in clashes near Syria’s Afrin

Seven Turkish soldiers were killed and a tank lost in Ankara’s ongoing military campaign against Kurdish militias in Syria's northwestern Afrin region. The casualties marked the deadliest day for Turkey since the offensive began.

Five servicemen died in fighting near the settlement of Sheikh Haruz located north-east of Afrin, the Anadolu news agency reported, citing a statement issued by Turkey’s General Staff. The soldiers were killed as a Turkish tank came under attack, it said.

Earlier, the General Staff also reported about the death of two other Turkish soldiers. One was killed in clashes with local armed groups on Syrian territory, while another lost his life during an attack by what Ankara described as “terrorist groups” in Turkey's Kilis province.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What in heaven's name were the Turks thinking, that the Kurdish people inside Northern Syria were going to welcome them with flowers, as they were bombing the hell out of Syria?!?

And here's a companion headline of note, which may be one of the sources of Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim's ire:

Massive Pentagon agency lost track of hundreds of millions of dollars

One of the Pentagon’s largest agencies can't account for hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of spending, a leading accounting firm says in an internal audit obtained by POLITICO that arrives just as President Donald Trump is proposing a boost in the military budget.

Ernst & Young found that the Defense Logistics Agency failed to properly document more than $800 million in construction projects, just one of a series of examples where it lacks a paper trail for millions of dollars in property and equipment. Across the board, its financial management is so weak that its leaders and oversight bodies have no reliable way to track the huge sums it's responsible for, the firm warned in its initial audit of the massive Pentagon purchasing agent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; this is the same government which demands to know where you spent every penny, but cannot manage to find 800 million dollars spent by the US military.

I want to see a forensic accounting review on this missing money, before the US military is awarded one more cent!

This is absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

RON PAUL: WHAT THE FBI/FISA MEMO REALLY TELLS US ABOUT OUR GOVERNMENT

The release of the House Intelligence Committee’s memo on the FBI’s abuse of the FISA process set off a partisan firestorm. The Democrats warned us beforehand that declassifying the memo would be the end the world as we know it. It was reckless to allow Americans to see this classified material, they said. Agents in the field could be harmed, sources and methods would be compromised, they claimed.

Republicans who had seen the memo claimed that it was far worse than Watergate. They said that mass firings would begin immediately after it became public. They said that the criminality of US government agencies exposed by the memo would shock Americans.

Then it was released and the world did not end. FBI agents have thus far not been fired. Seeing “classified” material did not terrify us, but rather it demonstrated clearly that information is kept from us by claiming it is “classified.”

In the end, both sides got it wrong. Here’s what the memo really shows us:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this moment, and considering myself a reasonably responsible adult, I have absolutely zero faith in any element of the US government.

Elections are not about the qualities and beliefs of the individuals running for office, but about which ones are better trusted (and funded, overtly and covertly) by corporations, to be most committed to the existing status quo of allowing corporations to run absolutely roughshod over the American consumer, in terms of quality of product; pricing; and limited liability, or zero liability for their products, like software.

Yes, in this country, we have those 4 year, illusory, Kabuki-like spectacles of national elections in this country; but in the end, it is always the thoroughly vetted, war-centric, corporate-centric, Deep State-obeying candidates who generally win, no matter what We the People want;so real change, where we actually have a government which listens and responds to the needs and concerns of its people, cannot possibly happen.

It is utterly maddening to me that the Candidate Trump we saw on the election trail, one thinking about rapprochement with countries like China and Russia, and disengaging from these draining, horrific wars in which the US military is thoroughly mired, is not the President Trump we have in the White House.

He has been totally turned against peace and negotiations as the chief weapons of American statescraft, into one of the most terrifyingly sabre-wrattling, weapons-peddling Presidents in current history, to the point of having State Department officials shill for American weaponry at foreign air shows:

U.S. State Department official to promote military sales at Singapore show

US Delegation pitches arms sales in China's Backyard

Forgive me, but since when was it consided ethically proper, and morally correct, to send government officials to peddle the wares of America's Merchants of Death and Destruction?!?

The short, pragmatic answer is, since the world doesn't want to buy shoddily made American goods, or software, or, God forbid, our disease-inducing GMO-laden food, it appears... that our weaponry is the only thing foreign countries want to buy, when even that, too has a hard time competing with Russian or Chinese weaponry that is very well made, and does't cost anywhere near as much as its US competition.

INTERNATIONAL ARMS WATCHDOG FINDS THAT MOST ISIS WEAPONRY WAS PURCHASED BY THE UNITED STATES AND SAUDI ARABIA BEFORE BEING SHIPPED TO OPPOSITION FORCES IN SYRIA AND IRAQ

A damning report by the EU-funded Conflict Armament Research has found that the majority of weapons that ended-up in the hands of Daesh/ISIS were purchased from Eastern European stockpiles by the United States or Saudi Arabia and transferred to opposition militias in Syria. In many cases there is clear evidence to suggest that the arms were transferred into ISIS possession in less than a month, as US-backed groups amalgamated into ISIS or the weapons were sold on a thriving black market.

A significant proportion of the weapons examined were unauthorised for retransfer, meaning that they had End User Clauses for US and Saudi military or police use that were quickly violated, not even being shipped to their country of authorised usage in many cases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The war criminality of the US government, in enabling and abetting this transfer of weapons, is truly staggering.

WATCH: HERO DAD SAVES 30 PEOPLE FROM GUNMAN – COPS SHOW UP AND SHOOT HIM

The man who should be celebrated as a hero for saving his wife, daughter, and at least 30 strangers from an armed gunman during an attempted robbery, is now recovering from a gunshot wound after police arrived at the scene and shot him.

Mike Becker, 31, told the Kansas City Star that he grabbed his handgun and rushed to the local Dollar General after he received a call from his wife saying that she, their 4-year-old daughter, and several other customers in the store were being threatened by a man with a gun.

While the customers huddled together in the back of the store, Becker’s wife hid their daughter behind bags of dog food. When Becker arrived, he said he found the gunman outside, pounding on the glass door.

“The only thing in my mind was my baby and wife,” Becker said, describing how he intervened and put his body between the gunman and the glass. “There was no way the gunman was getting in that store.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If THIS is how police in Independence, Kansas, interpret "to protect and serve", residents of this town need to vote with their feet, and get out that city PERMANENTLY,remove its tax base, and get the kids out of their public schools immediately.

TURKEY WARNS US TROOPS IN NORTHERN SYRIA MAY BE TARGETED BY ITS ARMED FORCES

Last week we reported that days Turkey valiantly demanded that US forces vacate military bases in the Syrian district of Manbij, the US predictably refused, and on Monday a top American general said that US troops will not pull out from the northern Syrian city of Manbij, rebuffing Ankara demands to withdraw from the city and risking a potential confrontation between the two NATO allies.

One week later, in the latest dramatic escalation between the two NATO members, Turkey's Deputy PM has warned that US troops fighting alongside Syrian Kurdish militias in the same uniform may be targeted by the Turkish army due to the difficulty of distinguishing them in the heat of battle, effectively stating that US troops in northern Syria are now "fair game" in the ongoing deadly conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I am hoping - and praying - for, is that this major escalation in tensions, and the war of words, between DC and Ankara, does NOT mean that our troops in Syria are being considered "sacrificial lambs" by this administration, to be used as a pretext and justification, to establish a wider US footprint in Syria.

Remember: regime change in Damascus is ultimately the issue to which this Administration keeps stubbornly clinging like a tick, no matter how high military and civilian casualties might be in pursuance of that goal.

I just have to wonder at what point Russia, which was invited by the Syria govenment to get rid of its jihadis will say "NYET!!" to a further American invasion of this sovereign country, and what actual steps may be taken by the Russians to prevent this from happening.

Because if the game plan by DC is to engage Russia in Syria militarily, it is obviously a game plan which was never thoroughy vetted, or thought through, with any degree if intellectual rigor.

U.S. CONSIDERS CUTTING VENEZUELAN OIL IMPORTS, AS PRE-SALES OF "PETRO" CRYPTOCURRENCY LOOMS

Washington may be nearing a decision on extending sanctions against Venezuela to include imports of Venezuelan crude and exports of U.S. refined products to the troubled South American country.

That’s what Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during a visit to Argentina, adding that “One of the aspects of considering sanctioning oil is what effect would it have on the Venezuelan people? Is it a step that might bring this to an end more rapidly?”

Current sanctions target separate individuals from the Nicolas Maduro government as well as a ban on U.S. banks and other institutions buying Venezuelan debt. Venezuela has traditionally been an important exporter of oil to the United States, which made Washington wary of playing the oil import ban card.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an attempt, pre-Venezuelan elections, to slam the Venezuelan economy into an economic hole from which it cannot escape, and drive the quality of life here to include even more misery than it's people are already experiencing.

I am quite certain, come the next elections here (happening on April 30th of this year), that the US is backing it's "favorite son" candidate with money, illegal votes, and expecting the returned promise that Venezuela's oil will only be sold to the multinational companies of which the US government approves, and only sold in US dollars.

Christopher Steele Wrote Another Trump Memo, Given Info By Clinton Contact Through Obama State Department

A newly released document from the Senate Judiciary Committee says Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the Trump dossier, wrote an additional memo on the subject of Donald Trump and Russia that was not among those published by BuzzFeed in January 2017.

The newly-released document is an unclassified and heavily redacted version of the criminal referral targeting Steele filed on Jan. 4 by Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina. It appears to confirm some level of coordination between the extended Clinton circle and the Obama administration in the effort to seek damaging information about then-candidate Trump.

Here is the kicker from the report:

SUPER BOWL MAYHEM: PHILADELPHIA CELEBRATES WITH FIRES, LOOTING AND SHOOTING

Last night, after underdog Eagles defeated Tom Brady and the Pats to win the Superbowl, we predicted that "Philly GDP was set for a major Keynesian boost tonight"...

Philly GDP set for a major Keynesian boost tonight

— zerohedge (@zerohedge) February 5, 2018
Sure enough, thousands of ecstatic Eagles fans took to the streets of Philadelphia Sunday night after their first ever Super Bowl win, beating the five-time champion New England Patriots 41-33 at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Earlier in the day, Philly was hard at work preparing for whatever outcome was in store for the Eagles - including officers from 60 additional police departments, 400 National Guard members, US Secret Service, ICE, FBI, private security, County Sheriff's Reserves, and over 10,000 civilian volunteers. Oh, and they also greased up the light poles for good measure:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; were all those additional officers, the 400 national guard members, US Secret Service, ICE, and FBI members, private security, County Sherrif's Reserves, and over 10,000 cvilian volunteers ordered, collectively, to stand down, so that the rioting, looting, and destruction of property could get as bad as it possibly could, as some kind of "catharsis" for a city population still experiencing poverty for over 25% of its citizens?!?

Philadelphia's Poor

The article goes on to state:

"Poverty is one of Philadelphia’s most enduring problems. At 25.7 percent, the poverty rate is the highest among the nation’s 10 largest cities. About 400,000 residents—including roughly 37 percent of the city’s children under the age of 18—live below the federal poverty line, which is $19,337 in annual income for an adult living with two children. And nearly half of all poor residents are in deep poverty, defined as 50 percent below the federal poverty line."

SECRET HOUSE MEMO RELEASED: THE FALLOUT, THE LIES, AND THE BIGGER PICTURE

That’s a lot more spying than three warrants granted by a FISA court to surveil the Trump team. But you’re supposed to look at the warrants and how they were obtained, and not look at the wall-to-wall spying on every American.

You’re supposed to get embroiled in the Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee vs. the Democrat members, as they fling accusations at each other.

You’re not supposed to realize the NSA already has thousands of Trump-related documents, illegally obtained over a long period of time, as well as Obama-related documents, and documents on anybody and everybody who communicates electronically.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The use of this false information was engineered to create a coup d'etat, and topple the legitimately elected President of the United States, utilizing weaponized disinfo, courtesy of the (alleged) DOJ (Democrat's Office of Juggernauts and FBI. (the Federal Bureau of Political Intrigue).

Thinking Americans should be outraged and disgusted at this travesty, and how it came to be.

The FBI and DOJ should be collectively sacked and reconstructed through the appointment of people who do not allow their political bias affect their work, period, end of discussion.

Exclusive: U.S. consumer protection official puts Equifax probe on ice - sources

Mick Mulvaney, head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, has pulled back from a full-scale probe of how Equifax Inc failed to protect the personal data of millions of consumers, according to people familiar with the matter.

Equifax (EFX.N) said in September that hackers stole personal data it had collected on some 143 million Americans. Richard Cordray, then the CFPB director, authorized an investigation that month, said former officials familiar with the probe.

But Cordray resigned in November and was replaced by Mulvaney, President Donald Trump’s budget chief. The CFPB effort against Equifax has sputtered since then, said several government and industry sources, raising questions about how Mulvaney will police a data-warehousing industry that has enormous sway over how much consumers pay to borrow money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder: has this guy been bribed, or threatened, or has he simply decided that this company is TBTF (too big to fail), should a thorough investigation be allowed?!?

CHINA TO STAMP OUT CRYPTOCURRENCY TRADING COMPLETELY WITH BAN ON FOREIGN PLATFORMS

China is to block all websites related to cryptocurrency trading and initial coin offerings (ICOs) – including foreign platforms – in a bid to finally quash the market completely.

“To prevent financial risks, China will step up measures to remove any onshore or offshore platforms related to virtual currency trading or ICOs,” said an article published on Sunday night by Financial News, a publication affiliated to the People’s Bank of China (PBOC).

The article acknowledged that recent attempts to stamp out digital currencies by shutting down domestic exchanges had failed to completely eradicate trading.

“ICOs and virtual currency trading did not completely withdraw from China following the official ban … after the closure of the domestic virtual currency exchanges, many people turned to overseas platforms to continue participating in virtual currency transactions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how well this ban holds,and how it will effect other international traders in this currency which appear to have fully embraced its legitimacy.

Press Prostitutes Lie Through Their Teeth About House Intelligence Committee Report

One consequence of this continuing Republican incompetence is that it allows the presstitutes, who also know about the FISA court memorandum, to ignore that confessions validating the “Nunes Memo” are in the hands of the FISA court. Consequently, the presstitutes, such as the CNN whores, are at their dirty dishonest work of misrepresenting the documented facts in the House Intelligence Committee report as “Nunes’ allegations,” “Nunes’ assertions,” “a disputed GOP intelligence memo that alleges FBI abuses,” and so forth. See, for example, https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/02/politics/republican-intelligence-memo/i...

Nunes memo = ONGOING .01% treason to overthrow presidential election AFTER overthrowing Bernie’s primary win DURING lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression murdering thousands of US military and millions of civilians + looting trillions from Americans

Treason: the betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or be consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies. ~ legal dictionary

You can read the Nunes 4-page memo with helpful analyses here, here, and here. Here’s a sharp 5-minute overview from The Truth Factory:

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) says he will lead a formal request for treason charges against former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Is treason an exaggeration?

No.

Mainstream Media Outlets Banish Contents Of Republican Memo From Front Page Coverage

The memo alleges the Federal Bureau of Intelligence and Department of Justice abused their power to obtain permission from a secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to spy on the Trump campaign. It asserts the FBI used an unverified opposition research dossier paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee to obtain permission to spy, but never disclosed certain information to the court that would have undermined its case, including who paid for the document and indications its author was an unreliable source.

The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and other mainstream outlets blocked these explosive allegations from their home pages Friday night, in some cases mischaracterizing the contents of the memo and downplaying its significance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is why it is up to all of us to keep this story in the public eye!

BREAKING: On The Same Day Trump Releases the Nunes Memo A Federal Judge Keeps The Comey Memos Secret

On the same day the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released the Nunes memo showing the FBI relied on the salacious and unverified Trump dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a federal judge ruled to withhold the Comey memos. The memos, authored by former FBI Director James Comey, are about his nine private conversations with President-elect and President Trump.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg, who ruled in favor of the FBI’s request to keep the Comey memos secret, also sits on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FISA court is the same court that approved the surveillance on Trump associates.

Boasberg refused to release the documents on the basis they were still being used by special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of the alleged Russian collusion with Trump associates.

The judge ruled, “the Comey Memos, at least for now, will remain in the hands of the Special Counsel and not the public.”

US is in talks with Turkey about Manbij: Mattis

The United States is in talks with Turkey about Manbij, Syria, but it is not the right time to discuss it publicly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis said on Feb. 2.

"I am not going to discuss [it] right now," Mattis told reporters at a news conference. "It is simply not the right time to do this in the public square."

Mattis was referring to Turkey’s plan to launch a military operation in the strategically important northern city as part of Operation Olive Branch.

Manbij lies northeast of Aleppo but just south of the Turkish border. Washington has voiced concern about the safety of U.S. troops in Manbij amid Turkey's ongoing operation in northeastern Syria.

There are about 2,000 American soldiers in Manbij.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that these talks will ratchet down the tension here, but it is hard to know what will ultimately be decided.

The one think I am hoping and praying that doesn't happen is that these US troops not be used as "sacrificial lambs", toward a greater US footprint in Syria, which means we will be looking at being at war with Russia also.

Can The Impending Collapse Of Russiagate Halt The Slide Toward A Nuclear 1914?

During the first Cold War between the US and the USSR, there was a general sense that a World War III was, in a word, unthinkable. As summed up by Ronald Reagan: “A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.” Then, it was understood that all-out war, however it started, meant massed ICBMs over the North Pole and the “end of civilization as we know it.”

Not anymore. What was unthinkable in the old Cold War has become all-too-thinkable in the new one between the US and Russia. As described by veteran arms control inspector Scott Ritter, in analyzing a draft of the 2018 US Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), the US threshold for the use of nuclear weapons has become dangerously low:

The 2018 NPR has a vision of nuclear conflict that goes far beyond the traditional imagery of mass missile launches.

Of course, the only thing more troubling than robots replacing human workers is the idea of robots tracking human workers’ hands, but i) there are profit margins to be optimized and ii) this is the same concept of being under house arrest with an ankle bracelet, it just happens that Amazon wants to put the device on the worker’s wrist.

As Expected, Press Prostitutes Lie Through Their Teeth About House Intelligence Committee Report

Why the Republicans, armed with enough information to smash the FBI, Obama DOJ, DNC, and presstitute conspiracy, can’t put their act together is a mystery.

The FISA court document, declassified and released, contains confessions from both the FBI and DOJ that the agencies misled the court and falsely acquired surveillance permission.

Why did the FBI and DOJ rush to confess to the FISA court? The reason is that NSA Director Adm. Rodgers discovered their illicit spying, investigated it, and let it be known that he was reporting the FBI and DOJ malfeasence to the FISA court. Adm. Rodgers also informed President Trump.

Nunes: FISA Memo Just "Phase One," Now Targeting State Department In "Phase Two"

Committee is currently in the middle of investigating the State Department over their involvement in surveillance abuses.

"We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this," said Nunes.

"That investigation is ongoing and we continue work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russia investigation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that Nunez, and those looking at corruption in both the DOJ and State Department, are collectively wearing their Kevlar undies.

Trump claims he is 'totally vindicated' by recently released Nunes memo - Twitter hits back

Much to the surprise of no one, Trump has taken to Twitter to share his views. "This memo totally vindicates "Trump" in probe," the US President tweeted. "But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on. Their (sic) was no Collusion there was no Obstruction (the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead). This is an American disgrace!"

The four-page memo, with a cover letter from the White House counsel, claims that the FBI omitted information in its application for a wiretap on Trump advisor Carter Page. It claims this shows FBI political bias against Donald Trump, thus discrediting the ongoing investigation into the president's ties with Russia.

America’s Cascading Disaster in Afghanistan

Cascading disaster is an apt term for the US military’s strategy in Afghanistan, which involves the indiscriminate killing of terrorist leaders, whether Taliban, Al Qaeda, ISIS or whatever else.

In addition to heavily underreported civilian casualties, US military strikes increase the ferocity of those terrorist outfits. Not just because those outfits want to show the world how strong they are. There is another element which arguably is even worse, as it is virtually impossible to reverse. Each “neutralized” leader leaves a power void within his organization and a number of usually younger and more ruthless members start fighting among each other to take over – with cruelty and spectacular attacks obviously being stronger “election” arguments than a “softy” willingness and capacity for peaceful dialogue.

US Airstrikes in Yemen Have Increased Sixfold Under Trump

With the Saudi invasion of Yemen turning sour and causing a humanitarian disaster, and the US having withdrawn most of its troops from the country early in that invasion, US officials have largely sought to downplay their military involvement in Yemen.

In reality, however, the number of US airstrikes being carried out has increased precipitously since President Trump took office, with 21 airstrikes on Yemen reported in 2016, and a more than sixfold increase leaving the 2017 figure at 131 strikes. 10 have been reported so far in January of 2018, suggesting that the escalation continues.

The strikes are theoretically targeted at al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and ISIS, though in practice with US troops in Yemen only “intermittently,” according to the Pentagon’s own accounting, it’s difficult to see how officials could know with any certainty what is being targeted by US warplanes, beyond being remote areas where such factions are believed to be operating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Presidents Barak Obama and Donald Trump now have one thing in common, both blood-soaked, and vile, besides having been - and being President; responsibility for colluding in Saudi War Crimes in Yemen.

I remember years ago, as a kid, having swallowed the koolade of "America cannot, and would never do, something morally wrong" to another country.

Now, as an adult, and evaluating the global deteriorization demonstrated by world events and falling standards of living,, I am seeing massive US government military interventions through which to expropiateother country's natural resources to which this country has absolutely no moral right; regime change of governments, to make those governments more western-centric, and to insure that those resourcesm are only sold in US dollars.

The images I am about to present are absolutely "lose your lunch" real, graphic, and absolutely ugly, which it comes to Yemen; but I have absolutely no choice but to continue linking to them until the carnage in Yemen stops.

Images: Yemeni children getting killed and maimed for life, courtesy of US-military enabled Saudi Bombing Runs

Due to Us/ Saudi blockades on Yemeni ports, food cannot get into the county; as a consequence children are starving to death from these blockades.

I would like to remind our readers that this is being done in your names, and with your tax dollars. We need to have a blunt, and honest, national conversation about why the US government is in collusion with Saudi Arabia in this genocide against the Yemeni people.

TRUMP SAYS IT WILL BE HARD TO UNIFY COUNTRY WITHOUT A ‘MAJOR EVENT’

Hours before his first State of the Union, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he wants to unite the country amid “tremendous divisiveness” and hopes he can do so without a traumatic event affecting Americans.

Trump spoke about creating a more united country during a lunch with a number of television news anchors. Trump said the United States has long been divided, including during the impeachment of former president Bill Clinton. Trump also said that Americans usually come together during times of suffering.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, Trump actually made these statements, then I am definitely feeling the cold chill of a US-engineered "false flag", running down my back like icewater from hell, to be blamed on the "villian du jour", (pick one: Syria; North Korea; China; Russia; Iran; Lichtenstein (just kidding, Lichtensteinians!), and off we go...

NOW THAT THE MEMO IS OUT, TIME TO GET THE UNDERLYING DOCUMENTS. JUDICIAL WATCH SUES FOR RUSSIA COLLUSION FISA DOCUMENTS

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Justice Department for FBI documents regarding the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant application submitted to – and responses from – the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court related to alleged collusion between Russia and Trump campaign associates (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00245)).

Judicial Watch filed suit in the United States District Court of the District of Columbia after the agency rejected a July 19, 2017, FOIA request seeking:

Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

My hat is off to Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch; these people have "male attributes" of titanium, which click loudly when they walk!!

BUYING CITIZENSHIP IS A $7 BILLION INDUSTRY

If you have lots of money, you can buy a citizenship in many different countries. The cheapest passport will run you $45,000, from the African island nation of Comoros. In this interesting short video I learned that if you can spare 1.15 million euros, Malta will sell you citizenship and a passport that allows you to work and live anywhere in the European Union.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I was perusing this article, I thought: what are the countries in which one can buy citizenship most cheaply?!?

And believe it or not, there are actual lists out there of these countries.

Cheapest Countries in which you can buy a Second Citizenship

Countries which sell Instand Citizenship, or passports

Where are the cheapest countries to buy citizenship?!?

VIDEO: MSNBC GUEST CALLS FOR REVOLUTION AGAINST TRUMP AMID FISA MEMO RELEASE

MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch called for a revolution in the streets after Trump released the Nunes memo Friday.

Deutsch, a former talk show host and frequent guest on MSNBC, says Trump is owned by Putin and that our Democracy is under siege.

He’s right. It’s under siege and Trump is taking it back!

“People need to start taking to the streets,” Deutsch barked, calling Trump a dictator.

Continuing his bizarre rant, Deutsch said, “We need a revolution at this point and I’m not doing T.V. here, this is what’s going on. I want to know what the people of this country are going to do if Rosenstein is fired. We can’t take this sitting down.”

He goes on to angrily admit, “Trump is winning. He’s winning kids. This crazy, wacky guy is winning. Half of the country thinks the media totally lies. At this point, 44% of this country doesn’t trust the FBI.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it's official: this guy has lost his reality licence.

The truth of the business is, the presstitutes lie to forward the Deep State's agenda; and anyone with any brains who believes that the FBI has not been infected with politicization and corruption had better put on their reality glasses, and take a good, hard look at what is going on.

Russian fighter jet 'shot down' in Syria's Idlib province

A Russian Sukhoi-25 fighter jet has been shot down in a rebel-held area near Idlib in north Syria, reports say.

The pilot was said to have ejected before the crash and been captured, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

Video posted on social media appeared to show the plane being hit, while other video showed burning wreckage on the ground, with a red star on a wing.

Russia has acted alongside its Syrian allies targeting rebels in the area.

Syrian government troops launched a major offensive around Idlib in late December, backed by Russian jets. The UN says some 100,000 civilians have been displaced.

The fate of the pilot has not yet been confirmed, nor which group shot his plane down or captured him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; who is really responsible for the shoot-down, and with what was it done, in light of the fact that no group has yet claimed responsibility?!?

We now have a update, courtesy of Zerohedge.com, as follows:

Russian Fighter Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebles, pilot Reportedly Killed

I am having to wonder if, perhaps, the rebels who shot down this plane were US backed, and if that might have been what gave them the firepower to successfully bring down the Russian warplane; this hasn't happened since 2015. (Warning: very graphic tweets at the end of this article.

If, in fact, this was a US-sponsored and armed rebel group, the situation in Syria is just about to get a great deal more volatile than it already is.

Pentagon acknowledges Russia is developing a 'doomsday' nuclear-armed torpedo

Russia is developing a new underwater torpedo with a nuclear warhead described as a “doomsday weapon,” according to a new Defense Department report.

The Pentagon quietly acknowledged that Russia is developing a “Status-6” system for the first time ever on Friday with a 74-page report.

The Nuclear Posture Reviewdescribed a “new intercontinental, nuclear-armed, nuclear-powered, undersea autonomous torpedo,” which could be deployed from beneath a submarine.

But Pavel Podvig, an arms control expert, told NPR the Status-6 system might not even exist.

He floated the possibility that the graphic, showing a non-existent nuclear delivery system, was deliberately included in the broadcast as a ploy for Russia to flex some military might.

But Podvig also warned it might not all be smoke and mirrors. “My best guess is that there is a project to design an underwater vehicle with a purpose, unknown at this point. There is something there,” he told NPR.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the Pentagon's "proof" that this exists is allegedly only a graphic shown on Russian television, with Putin looking on?!?

This is yet another pitiful attempt by the Pentagon to get itself more money, when the money it spends now has virtually no oversight.

Theoretically, the Pentagon will be undergoing its first audit this year.

Pentagon announces its first audit

The article goes on to state: "The Defense Department has famously never been audited, despite receiving hundreds of billions of dollars annually and having more than $2.2 trillion in assets.

To be honest, I do not one more cent spent on the Pentagon until it has undergone a forensic audit which documents where every cent in its budget has gone.

The FISA Memo, Obama and the Election that Almost Wasn’t

They knew the dossier on Trump, compiled by Michael Steele, was unverifiable. They hid its origin and motivation from the court. The information from this warrant and the details of the dossier were used to move public opinion and Congress into supporting Robert Mueller’s investigation.

But, to what end?

To disgrace and force from office the President of the United States. Thus, these people, and the leadership of the Democratic Party, President Obama himself and Hillary Clinton’s staff all conspired to criminally disenfranchise more than 60 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump.
