Taliban Claims It Shot Down U.S. Transport Plane In Afghanistan

The Taliban claimed early Friday that its jihadis were responsible for shooting down an American C-130 Hercules airplane, according to reports. Initial reports stated that at least 10 people were killed when the US plane crashed at an airport in Jalalabad, Afghanistan.

“Our mujahideen have shot down a four-engine US aircraft in Jalalabad,” Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter. “Based on credible information 15 invading forces and a number of puppet troops were killed,” he added.

Russia Bombs ISIS

The US Military by constant violations of their oath of office have become a totally discredited institution that is nothing more than an enforcer and collection agency for private banks and corporations.All Wars Are Bankers Wars,which makes the Joint Chiefs of Staff nothing more than Banker's Whores.

After announcing it would conduct aerial operations in Syria, Russian warplanes struck Islamic State targets straightaway – in contrast to Washington’s campaign, attacking Syrian and Iraqi infrastructure targets, supporting its Islamic State foot soldiers on the ground.

Eight Laws Hillary Clinton Could Be Indicted For Breaking

As a former Justice Department official, I have, of late, been asked by both Democratic and Republican friends whether Hillary Clinton could be indicted for her email related actions. The simple answer is yes — she, and perhaps some of her senior staff, could be indicted for violating a number of federal criminal statutes.

The Mind of Mr. Putin

Putin concept of “state sovereignty” is this: “We are all different, and we should respect that. No one has to conform to a single development model that someone has once and for all recognized as the right one.”

The Soviet Union tried that way, said Putin, and failed. Now the Americans are trying the same thing, and they will reach the same end.

Hillary Clinton’s Email About Gay Parents Should Seriously Trouble Her LGBT Supporters

In late 2010, the State Department made an exceedingly innocuous change to U.S. passport application forms. Instead of listing “Mother” and “Father,” these forms would now list “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.” The change, the department declared, was “in recognition of different types of families”—namely, families with same-sex parents.

US Complains As Russia Bombs its Terrorists

Russia is Bombing Al Qaeda

This leads back to the most recent New York Times article. Russia is not arbitrarily bombing “moderates” backed by the US in Syria to stave off allegedly “legitimate” opposition to the government in Damascus – Russia is bombing terrorists who are either operating under the banner of Al Qaeda but are portrayed as otherwise by the US, or will inevitably end up turning their fighters and weapons over to Al Qaeda. Russia is bombing Al Qaeda.

Some might consider doubling down on a policy of backing terrorists that will inevitably be revealed to the world, and a policy that has thus far failed to topple the Syrian government which is now being bolstered by Russian, Iranian, and possibly Chinese forces, is a policy that is ultimately doomed.

UPDATED - Some Zionists Are Using Exaggerated Hysteria to Destroy Free Speech on UC Campus

There is something very disturbing going on with the University of California school systems that is more serious than over-inflated allegations of anti-Semitism and hate crimes on college campuses in California, and that is special interest bully pulpit attempt by some Jews to get regulations passed that outlaw any kind of speech that that basically rejects the Zionist project in Israel as a Jewish State. This is a very serious attack on free speech in one of America’s college systems. Trying to broaden the definition of anti-Semitism as “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination and denying Israel the right to exist” is clearly political blackmail. For several years now various Jewish right-wing organizations and individuals have been waging a political battle against criticism of Israel and Zionism and now it is focusing more and more on American campuses.

Cop Threatens Innocent Pregnant Woman and Her Fiancé with a Shotgun for Filming Them

Memphis, TN – A video uploaded to Facebook yesterday afternoon, is causing serious backlash against the tactics being used by police to serve an arrest warrant.

As the video begins, several heavily armed men can be seen arresting a man who appeared to be fully compliant with their instructions. Within seconds this “typical” arrest would become yet another example of the incredulous behavior we so often see in the Police State.

As the camera pans upward, one of the men noticeably has his weapon trained on the man filming the incident. The man filming immediately asks them why they have a gun pointed in his direction, to which one paranoid cop replies, “So we don’t get shot.”

A Spoiled Deal: How a Dispute Over Dairy Helped Sidetrack the Trans-Pacific Partnership

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been on many people’s minds lately, especially Canadian voters who are preparing to go to the polls on Oct. 19. The massive trade pact includes 12 countries at different stages of economic development, covering some 40% of the world’s economy. It is being negotiated in secret, without consultation from lawmakers in the nations signing on, let alone the citizens of those nations.

Showdown at the UN Corral – Raimondo

If there was any doubt that Washington has learned absolutely nothing since George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq, then President Obama’s address to the United Nations has confirmed the world’s worst fears. It was an oration that combined the most egregious lies with the wooly-minded “idealism” that has been such a destructive force in world affairs since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

“That's particularly true of Syria, where we have all known for years that there can only be a solution with Russia and not without Russia,” Merkel said in her speech in eastern Germany, which marked the forthcoming 25th anniversary of the German reunification.

Fox News Legal Analyst Predicts FBI Will Recommend Hillary Clinton be Indicted for National Security Crimes

According to the Associated Press:

“The Petraeus emails, first discovered by the Defense Department and then passed to the State Department’s inspector general challenge…Clinton’s claim that she has handed over the entirety of her work emails from the account.”

Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” Judge Andrew Napolitano predicted Clinton’s defense, saying:

“She’s going to argue–because she stated…that she’s not a technical person, and she didn’t pay attention to emails, and she doesn’t understand exactly how the entire email system works–I’m afraid that’s not an argument that the judge wants to hear, and will essentially fall on deaf ears.”

Speaking to potential legal action, Napolitano added:

“I think that the FBI will recommend to the Justice Department that she be indicted.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I disagree. I predict the FBI will say they have found no evidence justifying criminal prosecution.

Vets outraged: Hillary says it DISHONORS military to hold her accountable for Benghazi

Does this woman have any shame?

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton took offense to remarks by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy that the ongoing House select committee investigation into the Benghazi attacks is hurting her campaign, and used members of the U.S. military as political pawns in disparaging the probe.

Clinton appeared Wednesday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” and told host Al Sharpton that McCarthy’s comment “demonstrates unequivocally that this was always meant to be a partisan political exercise.”

She then claimed the pursuit for answers to why four Americans died in the attack is somehow an affront not only to those who lost their lives, but to all members of the military.

Outstanding Open Letter To Rand Paul

It’s time to give up this obsession with being president. By now, it’s pretty apparent that you have little national appeal, that you can’t get money from many big donors, and you don’t know how to keep your base happy while bringing in new supporters. . These things are unlikely to change any time soon, and it’s time you started focusing on being a Senator from Kentucky instead... I don’t know if anyone told you this, but US Senators are very powerful people. It’s shocking, I know. But it’s true! In fact, Senators are often national figures who can exercise quite a bit of political power

Checkmate

Putin's key talking points could not but be easily accessible to the Global South — his prime audience, much more than the industrialized West.

1) The export of color — or monochromatic — revolutions is doomed.

2) The alternative to the primacy of statehood is chaos. This implies that the Assad system in Syria may be immensely problematic, but it's the only game in town. The alternative is ISIS/ISIL/Daesh barbarism. There's no credible "moderate opposition" — as there was not in NATO-"liberated" Libya.

3) Only the UN — as flawed as it may be — is a guarantor of peace and security in our imperfect, realpolitik geopolitical environment.

ALL OUT WAR: Iranian Troops To Conduct Ground Attacks In Syria

Lebanese Hezbollah troops and Iraqis will also join the offensive.

Iran has dispatched hundreds of ground troops to syria to fight alongside the forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

A full scale war is unfolding in Syria, with a ground offensive being planned to coincide with Russian air strikes, according to Lebanese sources.

“The (Russian) air strikes will in the near future be accompanied by ground advances by the Syrian army and its allies,” one of the sources told Reuters.

“It is possible that the coming land operations will be focused in the Idlib and Hama countryside,” the source added.

Lebanese Hezbollah troops will also join the Iranian forces, the sources note, as well as Iraqis.

Undercover video: Clinton campaign worker caught breaking election law by registering Nevada Hispanics to vote with 'meme' photo of Trump that reads: 'THIS IS MY RESTING B**CH FACE'

A Hillary Clinton campaign worker has been caught on film apparently committing a felony by advising Las Vegas Hispanics how to vote while he is helping them register.

Hidden camera footage shows Henry Engelstein, identified as a campaign 'fellow,' reeling in Spanish-speaking Nevadans on a Las Vegas street with a comical picture of Donald Trump on his smartphone.

'THIS IS MY RESTING B**CH FACE,' the photo's caption reads, meme-style.

'Un payaso muy grande, si!' Engelstein tells passers-by. ('Yes! A giant clown!') In the video, shown to DailyMail.com exclusively by the conservative group Project Veritas Action, he boasts that Latinos' anger against the billionaire Republican front-runner is ample motivation for them to register as voters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the Blueprint for the New America, we propose a rule that if any campaign laws are broken, the candidate is immediately disqualified to hold public office, on the theory that if he or she cannot get their own staff to comply with the law, they are by default incompetent to run a city, county, state, or nation.

Damascus accuses US-led coalition of breaking int'l law, state sovereignty

British and French airstrikes on Syrian territory violate internationally recognized legal norms, the Syrian Foreign Minister complained on Thursday.

“What Britain and France are doing in the Syrian airspace flies in the face of international law and is a flagrant violation of the national sovereignty of the Syrian Republic,” Walid Muallem said.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed as “untrue” a statement earlier made by his US counterpart John Kerry about the US-led coalition’s actions in Syria being fully in line with the UN Charter.

"Today I said to John Kerry that, unlike in the case with Iraq, which invited the coalition to move in, there has been no such invitation from Syria, nor has the coalition asked for any such permission from the UN Security Council…
