HOW TO HAVE HONEST ELECTIONS

"It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything." -- Joseph Stalin
Following the Florida election debacle of 2000, Americans were promised a more honest, transparent, and verifiable system of elections. We didn't get it, because the elkection stealers won that election and decided that keeping the current system was their best guaarantee of re-election.

The election of 2016 changed that. The candidate being cheated by the system, Donald Trump, still prevailed thanks to a landslide that overcame the vote rigging. He will see having an honest election system as his best chance for a second term. Hence, there is a real opportunity to throw out the current system, whch is designed to encourage stealing elections, and replace it with a system that hinders cheating as much as possible.

Official Washington's "Info-Wars"

One has to wonder if State Department spokesperson Kirby knows that in 2011 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, speaking about RT, declared: “The Russians have opened an English-language network. I’ve seen it in a few countries, and it is quite instructive.”

I also wonder how Mr. Kirby deals with reporters from the BBC, a STATE-OWNED television and radio entity in the U.K., broadcasting in the U.S. and all around the world.

Or the state-owned Australian Broadcasting Corporation, described by Wikipedia as follows: “The corporation provides television, radio, online and mobile services throughout metropolitan and regional Australia, as well as overseas… and is well regarded for quality and reliability as well as for offering educational and cultural programming that the commercial sector would be unlikely to supply on its own.”

UK ‘did not send a gram of flour’ to Aleppo: Moscow refutes criticism over aid for Syria

The UK has not sent even one gram of flour or a single blanket to Aleppo since the Syrian conflict began, the Russian Defense Ministry said responding to a spokeswoman for Downing Street, who said Russia is stopping aid deliveries to the besieged city.

According to survivors leaving Aleppo, what aid is sent in is being seized by the US-backed terrorists.

Passing evidence of corruption to the US Government is like passing evidence of cannibalism to Jeffrey Dahmer. Don't expect anything to happen.

The investigation was coordinated by the Lower Saxony authorities which cooperated the FBI and Europol and other agencies in 30 countries all over the world.

Real News From Ukraine's Breakaway Donbass Republics

My name is Alexander Chopov and I am the founder of the Donbass Truth Channel. Our goal is to give the people of Donbass, Crimea and South-East Ukraine a voice in English. We don’t just report the news, or show video reels of suffering. We put these things in context, for Western viewers to understand not only WHAT is happening, but WHY it is happening. For example, in our very first video we explain that when hundreds of thousands of people came out to protest the Maidan coup in the Spring of 2014 they weren’t “pro-Russian” or “pro-Putin” – they were first and foremost PRO-DEMOCRACY demanding the federalization of the country, and the right to elect local governments. But that truth would have made it very hard for Western media to demonize them... We currently have 15 videos and are working on new ones. They are from Donbass, Crimea and Moscow. Our latest uploaded video is about the JIT report on the MH-17.

A military commission, which investigated incidents of the US, reported that Danish aircraft participated in an airstrike of the coalition on September 17, when a number of Syrian soldiers were killed. Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen and Defense Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen decided to withdraw the fighter jets after publication of these data. Reportedly, the aircraft will return to the country in mid-December. At the same time, the Danish government announced that it is going to expand its assistance to Iraq in counseling on engineering and construction works, which will be carried out by about 150 specialists...

'New era of peace': Trump vows to stop US toppling of regimes during 1st stop of 'Thank You' tour

Donald Trump promised a “new era of peace” during the first stop of his “Thank You” tour in Cincinnati, Ohio, vowing that the US will stop trying to overthrow world governments and will cooperate with countries fighting terrorism.

The president-elect also promised to cooperate with any country interested in destroying Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

"We will partner with every nation that is willing to join us in the effort to defeat ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism," Trump told a large crowd at US Bank Arena in Cincinnati on Thursday evening, as quoted by TASS.

"We will destroy ISIS. At the same time, we will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments, folks," Trump said, as quoted by The Washington Examiner.

...

"Our goal is stability, not chaos because we wanna rebuild our country. It's time," he said.

The Iron Heel At Home: Force Matters

I’ve long been taken aback by the readiness of some leading left intellectuals to downplay the role of state violence in the enforcement of social hierarchy and class rule inside the United States. Perhaps you know the argument: thanks to the relative strength of the free speech tradition, outwardly democratic politics, and the related heroic struggles of activists from the abolitionists of the 19th century through the trade union and Civil Rights militants of the last century, the American power elite relies less on force than on “the manufacture of consent” to keep to the citizenry down.

“Fake News” Has Been a Problem for Thousands of Years … Here’s How It’s Been Stopped

Throughout history, government officials have tried to stop “fake news” through various means before it was published.

The crime of the peddlers of fake news: failing to acknowledge that those in power were perfect saints.

Socrates

For example, Socrates was killed in 399 BC for spreading “fake news”.

His crime: “Failing to acknowledge the gods that the [mainstream media of the day] acknowledges”.

Tyndale

William Tyndale was killed in 1536 for spreading “fake news”.

His crime: Translating the Bible into English so that everyone could read it for themselves, and no longer had to rely on the clergy to tell them what it said.

Galileo

In 1616 and 1633, Galileo was tried for spreading “fake news”.

His crime: spreading fake news that the Earth rotates around the Sun.

Trump’s Appointments — Paul Craig Roberts

Before I give an explanation, let’s be sure we all know what an explanation is. An explanation is not a justification. The collapse of education in the US is so severe that many Americans, especially younger ones, cannot tell the difference between an explanation and a defense, justification, or apology for what they regard as a guilty person or party. If an explanation is not damning or sufficiently damning of what they want damned, the explanation is interpreted as an excuse for the object of their scorn. In America, reason and objective analysis have taken a backseat to emotion.

We do not know what the appointments mean except, as Trump discovered once he confronted the task of forming a government, that there is no one but insiders to appoint. For the most part that is correct. Outsiders are a poor match for insiders who tend to eat them alive.

Multiple Jobholders Hit New All Time High As Part-Time Jobs Soar

But perhaps even more troubling than the breakdown in November job quality, was another seldom-touted series: the number of Multiple jobholders, or people who are forced to hold more than one job due to insufficient wages or for other reasons. It was here that the red flashing light came on because while on a seasonally adjusted basis, the series rose once again by 61,000 to 7.8 million; when looked on an actual, unadjusted basis, the number of multiple jobholders increased again, rising by 57, and hitting 8,107 million, the highest number this century.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers, coupled with the reality that 95 million American workers are no longer participating in the labor market, does not augur well for the American economy.

Erdogan Demands Turks Exchange Their Dollars To Gold, Lira

Early this morning, in yet another session of panicked selling, the Turkish Lira crashed to new record lows to just shy of USDTRY 3.60, momentarily going bidless as the currency plunged nearly 400 pips in seconds, after Turkish President Recep Erdogan said the path for investors will be opened with lower interest rates, and urged the central bank to imitate Japan and U.S. where rates are low: “why should we go around with 14-15 percent?”

The answer is simple: the currency tends to drop when an economy is seen as weak, the political regime unstable, or - yes - a central bank cuts rates, which Turkey, as shown in the chart below, can not afford if it hopes to maintain a stable economy with the lira already at all time lows.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, how can Erdogan actually FORCE the Turkish people to do this, save for some Executive Decree, under the still existing "Emergency Powers" he possesses, and if he does that, how will he get the Turkish people to comply?!?

House to House raids by the Turkish military?!?

Oh, THAT's just going to be SOOOOO appealing to the Turkish people!!

Iran Threatens to Walk Away From Nuke Deal, Retaliate Against U.S. for New Sanctions

Iran is threatening to walk away from the nuclear deal with the United States and pursue forms of retaliation, including a national boycott of American goods, as a result of Congress’s overwhelming vote on Thursday to level new sanctions against Iran for another 10 years, according to multiple comments by senior Iranian officials.

Following the Senate’s 99-0 vote to renew economic sanctions on Tehran, senior Iranian officials said the United States is in violation of last summer’s nuclear deal and that Iran is prepared to retaliate, which could include abandoning the agreement.

The comments come as the Obama administration scrambles to preserve the deal in its final months in office, ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has been assembling a cabinet filled with fierce opponents of the accord.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to have been a very carefully crafted tactic by the US Senate to anger the Iranians to the point where they walk away from the P5+1 nuclear deal, and restart their nuclear weapons program as the "justification" for the US declaring war against Iran (which will almost certainly mean war with Russia.)

If I could ever craft an amendment to the Constitution it would be this; when all Congressional candidates declare their candidacy, that is the moment that one of their kids must enlist in the Armed Forces, in units most likely to see front-line action.

I am almost willing to bet that this will dampen Congressional ardor and lust for war, because, this time, with their kids tasked to participate in combat, ...it's personal. It's not just "other people's kids", getting killed and maimed for life, ultimately, for corporate profit; but will potentially be their own.

Senate Extends Idiotic Iran Sanctions By 99-0 Vote!

Forget that the promise of normalizing trade relations with Iran would produce untold wealth – and jobs – for both the US and Iran.

Kissinger and Brzezinski to Be Honoured by Nobel Institute and Oslo University

These two top officials behind major US wars (Iran/Afghanistan and Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos) and regime change (against Allende, Chile) will speak at the first of a new event, The Nobel Peace Prize Forum Oslo, created by the Nobel Institute in Oslo.

The leaders of the two institutions declare that they are proud to have succeeded in getting these two diplomats to Norway – and the media of course will be there. The event is sponsored by the California-based company InCircl – a marketing and mobile payment company.

This is the country that, since 1980, has intervened violently in Iran, Libya, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Kosova/Serbia, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, i.e. 14 Muslim countries. It has some 630 base facilities in 130+ countries. It has its US Special Forces (SOF) in 133 countries.

It has used nuclear weapons without apology and owns the second largest arsenal of nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By inviting warmongers and war criminals like Kissinger and Brzezinski to such an event demonstrates that the Nobel Peace Prize is an absolute, utter fraud!!

North Korea rejects U.N. resolution, vows stronger self-defense measures: KCNA

North Korea's foreign ministry said on Thursday it rejects the latest U.N. Security Council resolution imposing fresh sanctions against the country for its September nuclear test, saying it denied its sovereignty and right to survival.

The North's foreign ministry said in a statement that the country will be taking stronger self-defense measures in response to the resolution, the country's KCNA state news agency said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats, UN, for creating sanctions which are pushing North Korea into the polar opposite direction from where you say you want them to go!! Smooth move, there, folks!

What the UN, South Korea, Japan, China and US SHOULD be doing, at this juncture, is getting Kim Jung-Un and North Korea back to the negotiating table, and presenting a peace treaty to replace the existing armistice, which guarantees freedom of trade in exchange for North Korea stopping their nuclear weapons program, and becoming a signatory to the NNPT.

Unfortunately, however, it appears that this solution is....logical.

And I have learned, very painfully, that logic and the geopolitical process, are frequently mutually exclusive.

And, should North Korea accept such terms and conditions, it cannot be used as a "justification" for a US government's "back door war" against China.

‘Being shot on way out was better than staying’: East Aleppo family shares story of escape (VIDEO)

Some of the people light fires to try to keep warm, as it is freezing cold in the region at the moment. Cold, however, isn’t the only life-threatening issue – despite fleeing the terror, many suffer from severe malnutrition and most of the kids have yellowish skin and can barely move.

One of the mothers told RT that it was the rebels who took the food from them in eastern Aleppo.

“The prices for everything were so high! When the aid would come, they [the rebels] would take it and keep it for themselves. They stole it from us. None of my kids have eaten for three days, they are suffering, and the journey here was so difficult!” Majdolene said.

IDEAS AND TRENDS; CLUES GET WARM IN THE SEARCH FOR PLANET X

SOMETHING out there beyond the farthest reaches of the known solar system seems to be tugging at Uranus and Neptune. Some gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object that may be the long-sought Planet X.

Evidence assembled in recent years has led several groups of astronomers to renew the search for the 10th planet. They are devoting more time to visual observations with the 200-inch telescope at Mount Palomar in California. They are tracking two Pioneer spacecraft, now approaching the orbit of distant Pluto, to see if variations in their trajectories provide clues to the source of the mysterious force. And they are hoping that a satellite-borne telescope launched last week will detect heat ''signatures'' from the planet, or whatever it is out there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is another possibility. To start with, the so-called Cosmic Background Radiation detected by the COBE satellite did not match the predictions from the Big bang model. Instead of being smooth and featureless, it has structure.

Now, any amateur astronomer has probably turned their telescopes on the Ring Nebula in Lyra. Despite the name "Ring" it is actually a Planetary Nebula, meaning a spherical bubble of gas blown off when the star at the center exploded several thousand years ago. The bubble is expanding, and eventually will fade to invisibility as it becomes distended and moves away from the illumination of the remains of that center star.

So, let us suppose that a billion or so years ago, our sun was part of a binary star system, a common enough feature in the universe. And, that companion star, larger than our sun, burned through its fuel more quickly and exploded, creating a planetary nebula. As the bubble shot past our solar system, the planets were bombarded with debris. Today, a billion years later, we see that planetary nebula from our unique position at the center, creating the veil of energy called the cosmic background radiation.

So what the astronomers are looking for with their search (and I took part in one myself when I worked for NASA) is not a new planet at the edge of our solar system but a much larger and more distant dark core of a burned out star; the remains of our binary companion. This would explain why so many searches for whatever is distorting the orbits of the known planets have all failed. In a very real sense, they are looking in the wrong place, too close to home!

Just a thought from out of the box.

Anti-Russian sanctions likely to be extended by 6 months — Tusk

Western sanctions against Russia are most likely to be extended by another six months, President of the European Council Donald Tusk said. "There is every indication that sanctions against Russia will be extended again at least once," Tusk said in an interview with Poland’s TVN24 channel on Thursday evening, when asked to comment on whether the European Union was united in its stance toward Russia. "We are likely to expand the sanctions by another six months," he said, adding that although many countries have harsh anti-Russian stance, not all EU members share it. The official said that after the victory of Donald Trump in the US presidential elections, it will be harder for the West to make unanimous decisions about relations with Russia. "I think that after the victory of Donald Trump it will be harder to shape a univocal and united policy of the entire Western world toward Russia," Tusk said.

US Senate passes bill to extend Iran sanctions

The US Senate has almost unanimously passed a bill to extend sanctions against Iran by another 10 years. A total of 99 senators voted in favor, one abstained Thursday. The document authorizes the US president to impose restrictions on individuals and entities involved in the ballistic missile program, supporting terrorism and human rights abuses. It is yet to be signed by US President Barack Obama. Sources in his administration earlier said that the president would not support initiatives that might undermine the nuclear deal with Tehran. However, White House spokesman Josh Earnest failed to give any definite answer about the future of the bill. "We'll take a look at what bill is passed and determine whether or not the President will sign it," he told reporters. The Hill said, citing unnamed White House sources, that the president is likely to sign the bill.

"But those who wanted eastern Aleppo to remain under the terrorists’ control, prevented the militants from pulling out of the city"...

Militants surrender to Syrian forces in Khan al-Shih to southwest of Damascus

A total of 1,846 militants and 1,164 their family members were taken from Khan al-Shih by buses provided by the Syrian authorities between November 28 and December 1. In the coming days, the remaining 100 militants and 300 of their family members will be taken to Idlib, the ministry said... Khan al-Shih, located to the southwest of Damascus, had been controlled by the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, Ahrar al-Sham and Saif Al-Sham extremist groups since 2012. The militants bullied local citizens and shelled the nearby settlements and an international route, the ministry said. The Syrian forces launched the offensive in Khan al-Shih in October. After long talks, the militants agreed to withdraw from their positions, surrender their arms and military equipment and safely left the territory with their families in buses traveling to Idlib.

Russia, China and India work on major yet natural attack on US dollar

India and China are one of the leaders in terms of the economic growth, not only in Asia but also worldwide. According to the IMF, China's GDP growth this year will make up 6.5%, whereas India's GDP growth is expected to exceed 7%. In 2016, Russian oil companies have significantly increased oil exports to China, making payments in rubles or yuans. In five or seven years, Russia, China and India will fully refuse from both the euro and the dollar in international payments and switch to settlements in national currencies. Therefore, a closer long-term cooperation between the three BRICS members may strike a certain blow on the US dollar, the expert believes. According to economists, the world still prefers the US dollar, but this is not a vote of confidence in the US currency. Roughly speaking, this is a vote against all other currencies. The 20th century was a century of "dollarization," whereas these days, one can see a reverse process gaining momentum.

UN apologizes for Haiti cholera spread, not for causing it

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon apologized Thursday for the U.N. not doing enough to contain the spread of a cholera outbreak in Haiti, but he stopped short of apologizing for bringing the disease to the Caribbean nation.

Ban made his remarks in a speech announcing the U.N.'s new approach to cholera in Haiti, which seeks to provide aid to communities affected by the disease that has afflicted some 800,000 Haitians and killed over 9,000.

"On behalf of the United Nations, I want to say very clearly we apologize to the Haitian people. We simply did not do enough with regard to the cholera outbreak and its spread in Haiti. We are profoundly sorry for our role," Ban said, speaking first in Creole, then repeating himself in French and English.

"This has cast a shadow upon the relationship between the United Nations and the people of Haiti. It is a blemish on the reputation of U.N. peacekeeping and the organization world-wide," Ban added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable; So the UN's military can spread disease with impunity, with the UN never being liable for prosecution?!?

Russia and Turkey officially signed the agreement about the Turkish Stream on October 10... Naftogaz of Ukraine has refused to implement the costly project to reconstruct infrastructure objects. The contract was originally evaluated at $155 million. The company found the investment inappropriate after Moscow and Ankara came to an agreement to build the Turkish Stream gas pipeline. The money was supposed to be used to reconstruct the stations involved in the transportation of Russian natural gas to Turkey.

San Bernardino CA District Attorney Michael Ramos went On Radio Discussing Possibility Of Third Shooter in The December 'Terrorist Attack'

Lest anyone think that the three shooters were imaginary, made up, or a "conspiracy" which was "made up" on the part of multiple shooting victims who saw the three shooters, in March of this year, the San Bernardino CA District Attorney Michael Ramos was asked "What's the indication that there might be a third shooter involved in the attack?"
Ramos replies "You know I will tell you this, that the FBI has done a tremendous amount of work in this area, and so has the San Bernardino Police Department and the Sheriffs. But there's still some information out there that a couple of the victims that were in the building themselves said it's possible they thought that there was a third person. Now we don't have any other corroborating evidence that there was a third person, but shouldn't we look at everything? I mean think about it."

Centcom Commander: US Must Keep Troops in Afghanistan to ‘Send a Strong Message’

Speaking at the Foreign Policy Initiative’s forum today, Gen. Joseph Votel, the head of Central Command, praised President Obama for not following through on planned drawdowns of ground troops in occupied Afghanistan, saying he wants to keep troop levels at least this high for the foreseeable future.

Gen. Votel argued that keeping 8,400 troops in Afghanistan more or less permanently was “a very wise move,” and that it would “send a strong message” to the people of Afghanistan that the US believes “the military strategy is working.” The US invaded and occupied Afghanistan in 2001.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has US General Votel gone absolutely barking mad, and lost his reality licence, to have made such a statement...in public?!?

Were I able to invite this man over for tea (and I sincerely doubt he would accept the invitation), I would have to ask him, point-blank: what are the metrics to which you can honestly point which indicate, 15 years on, and with the Taliban taking more and more territory here on a daily basis, that the US military strategy is actually "working"?!?

What do you actually mean by that?!?

So I must be brutally honest here; the only element right now for whom this occupation is "working" is the burgeoning Afghani opium trade.

As reported at thefiscalnews.com last month:

Losing the War on Heroin: Poppy Production Soars in Afghanistan

Oh, and it gets worse: not only is the opium trade growing like crazy; US troops are also being tasked with guarding the opium poppy farms.

images: US soldiers guarding opium fields in Afghanistan

So please, General Votel, cut the crud, already; we know why you are keen on keeping US and Coalition soldiers in Afghanistan for as long as possible, and it is not for taking territory away from the Taliban, or insuring the freedom of the Afghani people.

It is to guarantee the continuation, and expansion, of opium production here, to fund various "off the shelf" activities of various US alphabet soup agencies, and insure that Congressional oversight is completely non-existent.

Obama Supports Making Women Register for Military Draft

Continuing the debate over a massive expansion of the Selective Service, the White House today announced that President Obama is in favor of expanding registration for the military draft to include all women when they turn 18.

The announcement comes ahead of a planned House vote on a bill to study the expansion of the military draft, or to potentially eliminate the Selective Service outright. The White House has repeatedly insisted they have no plans to bring the draft back, but want to force everyone to register anyhow to “foster a sense of public service.”

The administration opened all combat roles to women, and officials say they believe expanding the registration system is a “logical next step,” ensuring “gender equality” in forcing the public to register for potential conscription in future wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...to foster a sense of public service...", MY ASTROLABE!!

Pentagon Again Under-Reports Civilians Killed in Iraq, Syria Airstrikes

The latest in the occasional Pentagon statements on civilian deaths in the air war in Iraq and Syria has claimed 54 civilians slain between March 31 and October 22, continuing the trend of official figures being massively lower than those reported in the media.

This puts the official death toll at 173 civilians for the entire air war, which is far short of estimates from most groups, which put the death toll far higher over the course of the conflict. Amnesty International put the figure at around 300, and others have suggested it was in excess of 500. The Pentagon often declines to investigate reports of civilian deaths, arguing that they are “not credible.”

Even when they do finally manage to get the killings into their reports, the tolls are often dramatically lower than the evidence suggests. A July 18 airstrike north of the Syrian city of Manbij, for instance, was finally included in the report this time around, with “up to 24” killed.

UN: Iraq Troop Deaths Soar With Mosul Invasion

Between Iraq’s military, militias, and the Kurdish Peshmerga, some 50,000 troops invaded the area around Mosul. The Peshmerga is reporting that they lost a large chunk of fighters by themselves, with 1,600 killed and some 10,000 wounded since late October.

That of course is only a fraction of the overall death toll for the month of November, as some 2,227 ISIS fighters were also killed. Among civilians, the UN only counted 926 killed, but the figure is actually several hundred higher, with the UN continuing to exclude deaths in Anbar from their official figure.

All told, that puts the death toll at 5,719 for Iraq in November, which is roughly in line with October. the November figures show a six-fold increase in Iraqi troop deaths, with ISIS casualties on the decline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These horrific numbers are the "legacy" of President Bush's war and occupation of Iraq.

70% Of Immigrants Admitted Under Obama's "Minor Refugee" Program Are Actually Adults

Two years ago the Obama administration sought out to tackle a "crisis" that involved minors seeking out "human smugglers" to help with transportation across the U.S. - Mexico border. So, with a swipe of the pen, Obama signed an executive order allowing minors of certain Central American countries to flee to the U.S. under a "refugee/parole program."

Two years later, there's just one problem: 70% of the people admitted under the program are actually adults. According to MRC TV, official data from the State Department indicates that of the 1,600 aliens that have traveled to the U.S. under the CAM program to date, only 480 of them are actually under the age of 18.

Obama administration stiff-arms lawmakers questioning secret refugee deal

Nearly 2,500 refugees from terrorism hotspots around the world are bound for the U.S. after being rejected by Australia, but not even top lawmakers can get answers about who they are.

In an unprecedented move, the U.S. State Department has classified details on refugees to be resettled in America via a secret deal made with Australia. The bi-lateral agreement, which Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called a “one-off,” involves 2,465 people currently being held in Papua New Guinea and Nauru who will now be transferred onto U.S. soil.

“This is a backroom deal, wheeling and dealing with another country's refugee problem,” Center for Immigration Studies fellow Don Barnett told FoxNews.com. “I don’t believe for a moment it’s a one-time deal. That’s for public consumption.”

The move has also raised a red flag among Congressional oversight members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have posted many times about the horrific conditions on Nauru, and why this was such a "black eye" against the core Australian values of freedom and compassion, and asked for at least some degree of sympathy for these people, particularly for the children, who had no choice but to leave with their parents.

I advocated for the Australian government to consider partnering with various international adoption agencies, to get kids adopted into loving homes which could give them hope, and a future.

But the fact that Obama did this with his normal, graceless hubris, essentially bypassing Congress, does give me pause for concern.

And how great will the vetting be on these people, considering that the Somali immigrant refugee, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who stabbed a bunch of kids recently at Ohio State University, was also vetted by this same US government, which concluded that he was utterly "no risk" to the American public?!?

White man who gunned down black ex-NFL player in road rage case released without charges

A man who shot and killed a former NFL player during an apparent road rage incident has been released without charges.

Joe McKnight, a former New Orleans high school star, was shot dead about 3 p.m. Thursday during an argument at an intersection in Terrytown, reported The Times-Picayune.

A witness said she saw a man, later identified as 54-year-old Ronald Gasser, yelling at the 28-year-old McKnight, who was attempting to apologize.

Witnesses said Gasser, who is white, pulled McKnight, who is black, from his Audi, argued with him and then shot him more than once as he stood over him.

“I told you not to f*ck with me,” Gasser said, before firing once more at McKnight as he lay on the ground.

McKnight, who last played in the NFL in 2014, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gasser was taken to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office for questioning but was released overnight without charges, reported The Advocate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pardon my Serbo-Croatian here, but what the hell is wrong with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, that this man, who was witnessed committing a cold-blooded murder, was not charged?!?

Were they given "instructions from on high" NOT to charge him, to aggravate an already racially divisive country into riots, leading to the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law, to "postpone" the inauguration of President-elect Trump?!?

This makes me absolutely furious, and I have to wonder just what the rationale was for not charging this guy.

Who is this Ronald Gasser?!? And why did he appear to receive a "get out of jail free" card?!?

FSB reports foreign special services preparing massive cyber attacks

Foreign special services are preparing to carry out massive cyber attacks starting from December 5 aimed at destabilizing Russia’s financial system, the Federal Security Service said on its website on Friday. The goal of the cyber attacks is also to destroy the activity of "a range of major Russian banks," according to the FSB. The servers and command centers for carrying out these cyber attacks are located in the Netherlands and are owned by Ukraine’s hosting company BlazingFast. The cyber attacks are expected to be accompanied by mass SMS and provocative publications in social networks or blogs about "a crisis in the Russian credit and financial system, bankruptcy and withdrawal of licenses of leading federal and regional banks." "The campaign is directed against several dozen Russian cities," the FSB stressed. The FSB is carrying out the necessary measures to neutralize the threats to Russia’s economic and information security and documenting the forthcoming campaign, it said.

President-Elect Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Coming ‘Pretty Soon’

Over the past several weeks, President-elect Donald J. Trump has been holding numerous interviews with candidates to fill his cabinet. While the media has been staked out at Trump Tower to see who the President-elect is meeting with, one future appointment has gotten little attention, the vacancy on the Supreme Court.

Ever since Justice Antonin Scalia passed away earlier this year, Republicans decided against holding hearings for Barack Obama’s nominee to replace the late justice and instead wanted the next president to fill any vacancy on the court.

Well, Trump just announced that his Supreme Court pick will be coming “pretty soon” and that he has narrowed his choices to “three or four” candidates who share views similar to those held by Scalia.

US invites Russia for consultations on cybersecurity

In 2015 and 2016, Russia invited the United States to begin consultation on cybersecurity but these invitations remained unanswered, Lavrov reminded. "Both in May and in July of this year, I reminded Secretary of State John Kerry that we had sent such invitations and would like to hear an answer," Lavrov said at the Mediterranean Dialogues forum. "He said it was a very good proposal but he would like to discuss it with the department of justice. But, in the long run, having discussed it, he said they were not interested in it. And only now they have sent us an invitation to get back to this idea. Well, we are not against."
