Drazha Mikhailovich: the man upon which the future Serbia will be rebuilt!

This is a very special day for me, because the topics I will be covering are all very dear to my heart and to my entire family. Following the Bolshevik revolution my family and another 1.5 million Russians fled their beloved motherland at the end of the civil war. All our so-called European “allies” immediately betrayed us (what else is new?), organized an intervention and backed the russophobic Bolshevik regime (yes, helping both side in turn, like the Empire today in, say, the Kurdish areas of Iraq and Syria). All except one: the Serbs which, at the time, were triumphant (WWI) but also had to rebuild a war ravaged Serbia, with most of its infrastructure destroyed, and coping with the death of nearly 30% of its entire population.

Debunking the Putin and Netanyahu/Israel work together canard (final installment)

This will not be an analysis or even a commentary. Neither am I siding with, or expressing support for, the Turkish military operation in norther Syria. Finally, I am not discussing the legitimacy (or lack thereof) of the Kurdish Independence movement. All I propose to do here, is to draw your attention to a series of facts and logical imperatives which, in my opinion debunk and falsify the disinformation campaign aimed at convincing us that Putin and Netanyahu are working hand in glove or, even better, that Putin is a puppet of the Israelis. So, with that in mind, here we go:

California Hit By Dual Shock: LA Gas Prices Spike Above $5 As Residents Learn Solar Panels Don't Work In Blackouts

But wait, there's more: America's most "environmentally conscious" state got a harsh lesson in electrical engineering when many of the tens of thousands of people hit by this week's blackout learned the hard way that solar installations don't keep the lights on during a power outage.

That, as Bloomberg reports, is "because most panels are designed to supply power to the grid, not directly to houses. During the heat of the day, solar systems generate more juice than a home can handle. However, they don’t produce power at all at night. So systems are tied into the grid, and the vast majority aren’t working this week as PG&E cut power to much of Northern California to prevent wildfires."

Multiple wildfires break out across LA: Terrifying footage shows more than 1,000 firefighters battling to contain growing blazes in Southern California as one man is killed and 100,000 are forced to flee their homes

Terrifying footage shows crews battling a California wildfire fueled by winds as homes burned and thousands of people were forced to evacuate.

The fire, known as the Saddleridge Fire, broke out after 9pm on Thursday in Sylmar, north of Los Angeles, along the 210 Freeway near Yarnell Street and jumped the highway, according to KTLA.

Multiple freeways, including Interstate 5, Interstate 210, and Interstate 405 northbound were shut down at least partially, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Fire officials said the Saddleridge Fire consumed more than 4,700 acres by 8am on Friday with zero containment. The cause of the fire is still unknown.

Helicopters made repeated water drops as 1,000 firefighters on the ground attacked flames in and around homes, 25 of which have been damaged so far.

Netanyahu Promises Aid To Kurds. Miss Iraq: That’s Why I Stand With Israel

On Thursday, Sarai Idan, who was Miss Iraq, lauded Israel for its commitment to help the Kurdish people in the face of what Turkish dictator Recip Erdogan’s brutal assault on them. Israeli prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted Thursday morning, “Israel strongly condemns the Turkish invasion of the Kurdish areas in Syria and warns against the ethnic cleansing of the Kurds by Turkey and its proxies. Israel is prepared to extend humanitarian assistance to the gallant Kurdish people.”

'Movie Idiocracy is a reality!' Google gets to chug millions of gallons of drinking water from dwindling aquifer to cool servers

Google has been given the go-ahead to pump some 550 million gallons of clean drinking water per year to cool servers at its sprawling data center in South Carolina, sparking outrage and fears the company will deplete the supply.

After months of wrangling over the tech giant’s request, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) gave its approval for the company to draw water from a major aquifer for its data center in Berkeley County, so long as it complies with the terms of the permit, in particular caps on the amount it can use.

While Google insists it strives to “build sustainability” into all of its projects, critics have slammed the move for putting Big Tech ahead of South Carolinians, arguing the aquifer in question is drying up and that its remaining supply should be preserved for residents.

Selling soles: $3k for a pair of Nike ‘Jesus Shoes’ with holy water was meant to be satire, but they were all snapped up

They look a lot like a normal pair of sneakers, but they’re not. They’re actually normal sneakers which have been messed around with and then sold for a price that would have even the Catholic Church blushing with embarrassment.

Why in Jesus’ name did the company MSCHF do this at all? They claim they were actually trolling what’s called “collab culture” and gave the example of a collaboration which saw Adidas making shoes with the name of an iced tea company on the side.

So, this is an attempt at satire, with Daniel Greenberg, the head of commerce at MSCHF, saying “we wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten.”

Which is a noble aim, a valuable comment on modern society and capitalism, or at least it would be if they didn’t then go and start selling them for $3,000 each! The only people being trolled here are the idiots buying them, and yes, they did sell out in minutes.

Here's the Anti-Joe Biden Ad That Biden's Team Tried To Get Banned from Facebook

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s team isn’t terribly thrilled about a new ad being run by President Donald Trump’s campaign. The Biden campaign got CNN to refuse to run it, though that’s hardly a stunner.

Meghan McCain Silences Liberal Laughter on 'The View': Trey Gowdy Is 'Good News for Trump, Bad News for Democrats'

5G Cell Phone Radiation: How the Telecom Companies Are Losing the Battle to Impose 5G Against the Will of the People

They thought that if they called their new, alleged “communications technology”, adapted from the military Active Denial Technology, “5G” or fifth generation, the public would just assume that it was more of the same as 4G, 3G or 2G. And if they could characterise the rollout as a race, the public would not have enough time to find out what a killer technology 5G is. How wrong they were! Not only has the public found out, but now they know how lethal previous generations of wireless technology – to be used concurrently with 5G – are as well.

Trump Tells Bankrupt UN to Find Money Elsewhere

Facing a massive hole in its budget, the United Nations is implementing “emergency measures” to avoid missing payroll and other obligations before the end of the year.

But Trump was unmoved by the whining. “So make all Member Countries pay, not just the United States!” he fumed on Twitter in his typical style. Prior to that, speaking at the UN in New York City, Trump told “world leaders” last month that the UN needed to ensure that “no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden.”

TRUMP CAN GET BOTH IMPEACHED AND REELECTED. HERE'S HOW | OPINION

Impeachment is pretty much the same as indictment. It's conviction in the Senate Trump has to worry about.It may never get that far.

With Congress and President Trump hurtling to a potential impeachment vote at the same time as the country is gearing up for a brutal presidential election battle, there is an odd possibility—albeit an unlikely one—that Trump could be removed by impeachment, but then come back to regain the presidency a few months later, in the 2020 election.

This improbable result comes from the reality that the law of impeachment does not automatically prevent an impeached and convicted official from running again, which Trump could be able to do as a Republican or Independent candidate come November.

6 Ways The Salem Witch Trials Were Fairer Than Democrats’ Impeachment Inquiry

Attorney Greg Jarrett recently wrote, “It is Pelosi and Schiff who are abusing the power of impeachment in their latest ‘witch hunt.’” This is wildly historically inaccurate. Jarrett should immediately apologize to the memory of the prosecutors of the 17th-century Massachusetts witch trials.

This is because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff are currently running their Ukraine impeachment farce with far less due process than the superstitious and backwards legal system offered the “witches” of Salem.

Below are a few examples of how Jarrett has unfairly slandered the jurisprudence of 17th-century Massachusetts.

Trump Is History and So Is the USA

Paul Craig Roberts

When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported “allegation,” and that the Trump Department of Justice had indicted two associates of Rudy Giuliana, President Trump’s most fervent supporter, for “campaign finance violations,” a very elastic term, it became completely clear that Trump’s own Justice (sic) Department is part of the Deep State’s plot to destroy Trump.

REPORT: Whistleblower Worked With Joe Biden When He Was Vice President

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, the CIA operative blowing the whistle on Trump for calling out corruption by Joe Biden and his family used to work with Joe Biden while he was vice president.

Lawyers for the whistleblower said he had worked only "in the executive branch." The Washington Examiner has established that he is a career CIA analyst who was detailed to the National Security Council at the White House and has since left. On Sept. 26, the New York Times reported that he was a CIA officer. On Oct. 4, the newspaper added that he "was detailed to the National Security Council at one point."

Palestinian hunger striker details ‘physical and psychological’ torture in Israeli prison

Palestinians are expressing outrage after hunger-striking prisoner Heba al-Labadi, 24, revealed new details surrounding her interrogation by Israeli forces and numerous torture tactics used on her in order to force her to end her strike.

Al-Labadi, a Palestinian-Jordanian national, was detained by Israeli forces on August 20th at the Allenby Bridge border crossing while she was traveling with her mother, on their way to attend a family wedding in the West Bank. She has been on a hunger strike in protest of her detention for 15 days.

Jeff Bezos’s Master Plan

At the heart of this faith is a text Bezos read as a teen. In 1976, a Princeton physicist named Gerard K. O’Neill wrote a populist case for moving into space called The High Frontier, a book beloved by sci-fi geeks, NASA functionaries, and aging hippies. As a Princeton student, Bezos attended O’Neill seminars and ran the campus chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space. Through Blue Origin, Bezos is developing detailed plans for realizing O’Neill’s vision.

It is now being reported that, in some cases, the women did not want to give up their children.

Winston Churchill – Traitor and Murderer

“World history: There are two world histories. One is the official and full of lies, destined to be taught in schools – the other is the secret history, which harbours the true causes and occurrences.” Honore de Balzac

Winston Churchill; the man voted in a newspaper poll as the ‘greatest ever Englishman,’ was actually an evil, self-serving, narcissistic, opportunistic, hypocritical, treacherous, traitorous, perverted paedophile and a murdering psychopath.

Preposterous you say? Read on and see if you still believe this statement to be untrue at the end of this article…

The truth about Winston Churchill is that he was a menace to liberty, and a disaster for Britain, for Europe, for the United States of America, and for Western civilisation itself.

Waging War on Iran Would Be Madness

All nations the US doesn’t control are on its target list for regime change, especially challengers to its hegemonic aims like China and Russia, along with oil rich ones like Iran and Venezuela.

That’s what US hostility toward these countries is all about, not because of a national security threat they pose — other than supporting multi-world polarity, conflicting with US hegemonic unipolar aims, a notion whose time has passed.

Iran can’t match US military power, but its capabilities can hit back hard against aggressors anywhere in the region.

Damascus vows to confront 'brutal' Turkish aggression by all legal means

“After his continuous support for terrorism in Syria, training, arming, protecting and sending terrorists to kill Syrians, the head of the Turkish regime came up today with statements that can only be made by a person detached from reality. He speaks of his commitment to protect Syrian people whilst he has the blood of the Syrian people killed by terrorists on his hands,” Syria’s official news agency SANA cited an unnamed source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates as saying in a statement on Thursday.

Ankara views the US-backed YPG as a terrorist organization tied to the homegrown Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militant group, which has been seeking an autonomous Kurdish region in Turkey since 1984.

The YPG constitutes the backbone of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an anti-Damascus alliance of predominantly Kurdish militants.

Return to Russia: Crimeans Tell the Real Story of the 2014 Referendum and Their Lives Since

IMFEROPOL, CRIMEA — In early August I traveled to Russia for the first time, partly out of interest in seeing some of the vast country with a tourist’s eyes, partly to do some journalism in the region. It also transpired that while in Moscow I was able to interview Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry.

High on my travel list, however, was to visit Crimea and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) — the former a part of Russia, the latter an autonomous republic in the east of Ukraine, neither accurately depicted in Western reporting. Or at least that was my sense looking at independent journalists’ reports and those in Russian media.

A scenario for impeachment and more

By Nathan Barton

The more I hear the rhetoric of the Democratic candidates for Massa (POTUS), the Congressional Democrats, and the mainstream media, the more convinced I am that they are indeed pushing for a coup.

Yes, The Donald is a disaster as POTUS. He is immoral, mercurial, and a loose cannon. He terrifies people. Including a good many foreigners.

But…
