Vladimir the Great’ is How He’ll Be Remembered (Video)

Stephen Frand Cohen (born November 25, 1938) is an American scholar and professor emeritus of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University. He is considered by many to be an expert on all things Russia, Putin, or Russian/American relations. He’s also a contributing editor at ‘Nation,’ where his latest article is titled: Is Vladimir Putin the Number 1 Threat to America or Its Security Partner in Waiting?

The article begins:

Russia’s leader may be the most vilified foreign leader in recent US history, but until now Americans have never had an opportunity to see, hear and evaluate him for themselves.

Belleville, IL Congressional gunman letters to the editor

James Hodgkinson, the Belleville man who was killed after police say he shot at congressmen and aides during practice for a congressional baseball game Wednesday, wrote a number of letters to the editor of the Belleville News-Democrat. In them, he often railed against Republicans and tax policies, and at least once advocated for legalizing marijuana. Following are the letters:

Report: Israel giving secret aid to Syrian rebels

Israel has been regularly supplying Syrian rebels near its border with cash as well as food, fuel and medical supplies, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the IDF is in regular communication with rebel groups and its assistance includes undisclosed payments to commanders that help pay salaries of fighters and buy ammunition and weapons, according to interviews with about half a dozen Syrian fighters.

An unnamed source told the newspaper that Israel has established a military unit that oversees the support in Syria, and set aside a specific budget for the aid.

Israel has not confirmed the report.

The West Can't Smell What Eurasia is Cooking

A tectonic geopolitical shift happened in Astana, Kazakhstan, only a few days ago, and yet barely a ripple registered in Atlanticist circles.

At the annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), founded in 2001, both India and Pakistan were admitted as full members, alongside Russia, China and four Central Asian stans (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan).

So now the SCO not only qualifies as the largest political organization by area and population “ in the world; it also unites four nuclear powers.

UPDATED: Iran Launches Missile Strikes at ISIL to Avenge Tehran Terrorist Attacks

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched multiple missile strikes at ISIL centers in Syria's Deir Ezzur in retaliation for the June 7 twin terrorist attacks in Tehran, the IRGC said in a statement issued on Sunday, adding that the mid-range missiles were fire from bases in Western Iran.

"The Takfiri terrorists' command center, concentration points and logistical centers used for assembling cars for suicide attacks in Deir Ezzur region in Eastern Syria came under attack by the IRGC moments ago in a move to punish the terrorists for the twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and the holy shrine of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, on June 7," the statement issued by the IRGC Public Relations Office said late this evening.

Breaking: Intense clashes break-out between Syrian Army and US-backed forces in west Raqqa

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 A.M.) – Intense clashes have broken out between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the western countryside of Al-Raqqa, tonight, a military source informed Al-Masdar.

According to the source, units from the Syrian Arab Army attempted to cross SDF front-lines in order to rescue their fallen pilot; however, they were turned away by the latter.

This resulted in a fierce confrontation that is currently ongoing between the two entities near the key town of Resafa in western Al-Raqqa.

PetroDollar System In Trouble As Saudi’s Keep Liquidating U.S. Treasuries (Video)

While the US dollar continues to ride high, few Americans are aware just how much the strength of our currency relies upon the petrodollar system. Because the world runs on oil, and Saudi oil is denominated and traded in US dollars, the American dollar has retained its strength for decades. But the petrodollar system, and the strength of the American dollar, may be in jeopardy.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at how Saudi Arabia’s foreign exchange reserves have continued falling ever since the oil price drop. Even with the recent recovery in oil prices, their reserves have continued to drop, and they have been liquidating their US Treasury holdings at a record pace. To make things even worse, something smells fishy about Saudi’s ‘official’ oil reserves figures. And as oil continues to trend lower, it may take Saudi Arabia and the dollar down with it.

“Kodi Boxes Are a Fire Risk”: Awful Timing or Opportunism? (Updated)

This week the world looked on in horror as a huge London tower block burned with residents still inside. Just a day later, a headline in UK tabloid The Sun declared "Kodi Boxes" a fire hazard and a risk to public safety. Was that awful timing? Cautionary advice? Or flat-out anti-piracy opportunism?

Time to Open an Investigation Into Non-Fiction Events! (Video)

Now that the whole allegation of the Trump-Russia collusion has been thoroughly and utterly disproved, the left is now switching directions and going for the obstruction of justice angle. Just like the Russian collusion allegation, this will again be thoroughly disproved in due time. This constant barrage of attacks against Trump is designed to ensure that the public’s attention is never diverted toward the real Russian colluders: the Clintons.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks back at the Clinton’s uranium deal which ultimately placed 20% of American uranium interests in Russian hands. Needless to say, the Clinton foundation was handsomely rewarded for its role in brokering said deal. What are the chances that the mainstream media will actually do their job and investigate this instead of continuing this insane witch hunt against Trump?

58 people confirmed or presumed dead from London tower fire

London police on Saturday raised to 58 the number of deaths either confirmed or presumed following the horrific inferno that turned the city’s Grenfell Tower public housing block into a charred hulk.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so many of the tower’s 600-odd residents. British media have reported that contractors installed a cheaper, less flame-resistant type of exterior paneling on the 24-story tower in a renovation that was completed just last year.

A New Wave of Left-Wing Militants Is Ready to Rumble in Portland—and Beyond

One week after two men were stabbed to death while defending two girls from a racist and Islamophobic diatribe on a commuter train, Portland, Oregon, is bracing for more violence. On Sunday, over the mayor’s objection, a right-wing group will hold a pro-Trump “free speech rally,” while anti-fascist activists are preparing to protest the gathering.

It’s a pattern that has played out across the country since the election: Pro-Trump events from Pikeville, Kentucky, to Berkeley, California, attract white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and Klansmen along with other provocateurs from the so-called “alt-right.” And, predictably, “antifa” counterprotesters mask up to oppose them—often physically.

Revealed: the tower block fire warnings that ministers ignored

The extent to which government ministers failed to act on expert warnings about inadequate fire safety rules before the Grenfell Tower disaster in London can be revealed by the Observer.

As public outrage mounted and political pressure grew on Theresa May over the tragedy, former chief fire officer Ronnie King – who is secretary of the all-party parliamentary group on fire safety – said urgent requests for meetings with ministers and action to tighten rules were stonewalled.

King also revealed that ministers had failed to insist that life-saving sprinkler systems were mandatory in the design of new schools in England, despite clear recommendations in reports commissioned by the government itself, which advocated their use.

Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry says tensions rise in Nagorno-KarabakhMore:http://tass.com/world/951981

Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry reported on rising tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh on Saturday.

Azerbaijan president calls for soonest resumption of Karabakh talks
"The adversary is continuing to shell from high-caliber weapons and artillery guns the positions of Azerbaijan’s Armed Forces and settlements located in the immediate battle area," the defense ministry said in the statement.
"On June 15, in an attempt to bring up short another provocation of Armenian armed units Azerbaijan’s army suffered casualties," the ministry said, noting that in retaliatory fire "on June 15 and 16, six soldiers of Armenian Armed Forces were eliminated," some were wounded.

On Friday, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry reported its soldier’s death

Webmaster's Commentary:

IN RHODE ISLAND, STUDENTS AND PARENTS MUST LET SCHOOLS SPY ON THEM DAY AND NIGHT THROUGH THEIR LAPTOPS

A majority of the Rhode Island school districts with "1-1" programs where each student is issued a laptop have a blanket policy of spying on the students and everything they do on their laptops, during, before and after school hours, on or off school premises, without any evidence (or even suspicion ) of wrongdoing.

The schools analogize this to school locker searches, in which students are denied any Fourth Amendment protections. But that (very dubious) principle is being stretched beyond the breaking point, as school lockers are in schools, whereas these laptop searches are being carried out remotely, everywhere, anywhere.

This isn't so different from the policies asserted by employers who require workers to take devices home, then assert the right to spy on them using those devices, installing their own certificates so they can stage "man-in-the-middle" interceptions of private sessions between employees and their email providers, financial institutions, etc.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "1984" of Rhode Island!!

Were I a parent with a kid in school where these devices are mandatory, I would immediately pull that kid out of that school, and put them in a private school where such policy does not exist.

Failing that, because of the cost, I would "vote with my feet", and move to another state where this policy is not pursued.

But after witnessing what’s happened in Kansas, many people are rethinking their approach to the tax system, especially given that lawmakers on Capitol Hill, including the president, have tax reform on their agenda in coming months.

How is London’s Grenfell Tower Still Standing?

Yesterday’s news about the Grenfell Tower in London going up in flames has me a bit confused.

On September 11th, 2001 the Twin Towers in New York City both sustained a great amount of fire damage and each building collapsed at near free fall speed. They disintegrated into dust!

It is interesting how this did not happen with Grenfell Tower in London despite the entire structure being engulfed in flames.

I guess the laws of physics were just suspended yesterday, because any time a building catches fire it should collapse at free fall speed. The Twin Towers proved this!

Grim Echoes for Families: An Officer Shoots and a Jury Acquits

Since 2005, when Mr. Stinson began his tally, just 29 nonfederal law enforcement officers have been convicted in on-duty shootings. Fourteen pleaded guilty, and 15 were convicted by juries. In that time, more officers — 33 — have been arrested or charged with murder or manslaughter but not convicted. In many of these cases, questions of guilt do not hinge on who fired the fatal shot, but on what officers were thinking when they pulled the trigger. “As soon as the officer gets on the stand and subjectively says, ‘I was fearing for my life,’ many juries are not going to convict at that point,” Mr. Stinson said. “We’ve seen it over and over again.”

The War on Yemen and the Senate Vote on the Saudi Arms Sale

The good news from Tuesday’s vote is that there is now much broader opposition to selling weapons to the Saudis when there is every reason to expect that those weapons will be used in Yemen. Sens. Murphy, Paul, and Franken have done great work in persuading many more of their colleagues to oppose such sales, and if they can continue to bring more senators over to their side the Senate may well block one of these sales before long. A close vote on this issue makes it much more likely that there can be a real debate over U.S. support for the atrocious and unnecessary Saudi-led war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no good news for the people of Yemen, and the Unhinged Surveilled States of America's "deep state"is still supporting Saudi Arabia's attempt to push back against the Houthi rebels, and forcefully reinstall the US government's puppet, Mansour Al-Hadi, by whatever means necessary.

This has translated into the following for the Yemeni people.

1. Yemeni children are getting killed and maimed for life.

Images: Yemeni children getting killed and maimed for life by Saudi air strikes

2. Because Saudis, with US military assistance, are blocking Yemeni ports, so no food can get in, Yemeni children are starving to death from malnutrition.

Horrifying images of starving children reveal the ongoing toll of Yemen's forgotten war.

3. Because of this malnutrition, Yemeni children are dying of cholera, and other preventable diseases.

Oh, and did I mention that Saudi Arabia is using depleted uranium weapons in Yemen?!?

Images: Saudi Arabia using chemical weapons in Yemen

These depleted uranium weapons are having the same effect that the use of these weapons did on pregnant women, and their children (and on US service members and their families) did in Falluja, Iraq, which meant massive stillbirths, cancers, and horrific physical mutations:

Image: massively deformed baby whose mother was poisoned through exposure to depleted uranium weapons.

When the intended consequences of a military campaign is the deliberate slaughter of children, through direct shelling; creating malnutrition and disease; and chemically poisoning them in the womb, as is happening through the joint US/Saudi war crimes in Yemen, you destroy the future of that country; ask the Palestinians, they are pretty familiar with that.

2016 'deadliest year' for West Bank children in decade

I am frankly appalled at just how morally comfortable the Royal House of Saud, the US Government, and the Saudi Government, collectively, appear to be with this genocide.

I, however, am very morally uncomfortable, being a citizen of a country which is actively, and aggressively, colluding in war crimes,and particularly war crimes of this magnitude.

Democratic consultant unapologetic for ‘hunt Republican’ posts

A Democratic consultant from Union County says that he refuses to apologize for Twitter posts he made with the hashtags #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressman.

“Sometimes you have to push them back,” says Jim Devine, a Democratic strategist from Rahway.

But sometimes the pushback turns into violence, according to top leaders in the New Jersey State House.

“The people who are serious threats, it’s unlikely they’re going to give you a heads up,” says Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick.

Politicians say that they are particularly concerned after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others were shot at a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia earlier this week. The shooter was supposedly targeting Republican politicians.

Devine made the Twitter posts announcing it hunting season on Republicans just hours after Wednesday’s shooting.

KIDS HORRIFIED AFTER COPS HOLD MOCK CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING DRILL, WITHOUT SAYING IT’S A DRILL

The Florida Highway Patrol is reviewing its presence at the Girls State Program after troopers conducted a kidnapping/human trafficking drill which went “horribly wrong” according to WFTV News Channel 9.

The girl’s program is attended by some of best and brightest high-schoolers Florida has to offer. “Everyone who’s going is at the top of their class,” Cameron Carlyle said describing the high-quality candidates who attend the elite leadership camp. But no amount of education could have prepared the girls for what happened on the last night of their training.

The Girls State director along with six Florida State Troopers, all female, pulled an attendee aside and told her she would be participating in a kidnapping drill, one which highlighted the real-world problem of sex trafficking. Under the cover of secrecy, the volunteer named “Katrina” was taken to a safe place. Thereafter, roll call was taken with the remaining girls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a parent of one of these young women, I would have pulled my daughter out of that program, and their school, so quickly that it would make heads spin.

Sexual trafficking is a serious problem.

That being said, what the State Troopers should have done was to educate these young women about how they can avoid getting into situations where something like this could happen, and how to fight back, if they are abducted.

SPECIAL PROSECUTOR MUELLER IS A POLITICAL HACK

The New York Times characterizes special prosecutor Robert Mueller as being independent and fair:

Robert S. Mueller III managed in a dozen years as F.B.I. director to stay above the partisan fray, carefully cultivating a rare reputation for independence and fairness.
Let’s fact-check the Times …

ANTHRAX FRAME-UP

Mueller presided over the incredibly flawed anthrax investigation.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office says the FBI’s investigation was “flawed and inaccurate”. The investigation was so bogus that a senator called for an “independent review and assessment of how the FBI handled its investigation in the anthrax case.”

The head of the FBI’s anthrax investigation says the whole thing was a sham. He says that the FBI higher-ups “greatly obstructed and impeded the investigation”, that there were “politically motivated communication embargos from FBI Headquarters”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Mueller has been hired to attempt a political assassination against President Trump.

With his vile track record so publicly revealed, however, this may not be as easy as Democrats may hope.

SWAMP CRITTERS GALORE: DEATH MERCHANT GUY TO HEAD UP TRUMP’S BUREAU OF INDUSTRY AND SECURITY

And creatures from the corporatist black lagoon just keep on coming.

In May, the Donald nominated Richard Ashooh to head up the Bureau of Industry and Security at the Commerce for Export Administration.

Here’s a little background on Ashooh:

In 1995, Ashooh joined New Hampshire defense contractor Sanders, which manufactured electronics for the military, working his way up to be vice president of government relations—a lobbyist. Sanders was purchased by Lockheed, which later spun it off to BAE Systems, with Ashooh remaining with the company. In 2001, he was director of public affairs in BAE Systems North America’s Information and Electronic Warfare Systems division. In January 2003, he moved from New Hampshire to Maryland as BAE’s vice president of legislative affairs to take advantage of his lobbying experience. Back in New Hampshire, he was the company’s vice president of strategic relations and homeland security.

Remember Trump’s lobbying ban?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These nominations are profoundly disappointing.

WHY MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPRESENTS THE VIEW OF BILLIONAIRES … INSTEAD OF AVERAGE AMERICANS

We noted yesterday that the Washington Post is owned by one of the world’s richest guys, worth $72.8 billion … and who may soon become THE world’s richest.

And you probably won’t hear it from the New York Times, but the largest shareholder of the Times is the sixth wealthiest guy … worth $54.5 billion. He used to be THE richest person, but he’s slipped a little in the rankings.

It’s not just the Post and the Times …

Noam Chomsky points out that big status quo-loving corporations own the media, cater to other big status quo-loving advertisers, and filter out stories which question the status quo. Extreme media consolidation has made the problem worse than ever before. And see this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the independent media is more critically important than ever; we tend to examine those issues which are 100% Kryptonite to the presstitutes of the corporate media, and their financial vested interests.

QATAR-SAUDI CATFIGHT UNVEILS WESTERN TERRORIST PROPAGANDA

The Saudi paper Al-Arabiya identifies Kareem as Qatar supported Al-Qaeda member. Smearing Qatar is now the favorite Saudi past time. That Kareem is al-Qaeda member is not news to anyone who reads beyond CNN and other main stream outlets. Just watch his interview (vid) with the al-Qaeda in Syria chief ideologue Muhaysini and you know what he is about.

Richard Barrett and especially Charles Lister were his discussion partners. Both are long known to be (well paid) propagandists for the Jihadis. Brooking Institute with its Qatar paid Doha outlet wrote the U.S. strategy for overthrowing (with the help of Jihadis) the Syrian and Iranian governments: WHICH PATH TO PERSIA? Options for a New American - Strategy toward Iran (pdf).

CNN produced the propaganda piece for the "Syrian rebels" aka al-Qaeda with the help of al-Qaeda's Bilal Abdul Kareem and with Clarissa Ward staring in an al-Qaeda bridal.

Those are several cakes flying into many deserving faces.

Legitimizing violence

The concept of a loyal opposition, which has long been the hallmark of Western political life, is now under attack. It would appear that now healthy debate has been rejected, respecting differing views dismissed, and violence deemed acceptable. This is how civil wars start.
