NATO Take-Over: US to Deploy Its Military Hardware in Lithuania

At least 200 pieces of US military hardware will be stationed in Lithuania for upcoming drills with Lithuanian troops, the country's Defense Ministry said.
The ministry added that later in December, about 50 units of US military equipment, including Abrams main battle tanks and Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, will be stationed at Lithuania's Mumaiciai district, as part of the so-called European Activity Set.
According to the Defense Ministry, a decision to store the US equipment in Mumaiciai was followed by the refurbishment of hangars where the equipment will be kept and the tightening of security of the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


It appears that NATO is caching weapons and military resources in Eastern Europe ahead of a military confrontation with Russia.

Otherwise, there would be no motivation for NATO to do this.

Obama: ‘No Boots on the Ground’ Just Meant No Battalions

Throughout a year and a half of war against ISIS, President Obama’s “no boots on the ground” pledge has been repeatedly revised by officials, initially insisting it meant no troops, then no combat troops, and now, according to President Obama, it simply meant no battalion-level deployments.

Obama now insists he never had any intention not to send combat troops to Iraq and Syria, and that the American people always understood he simply meant deployments would be small and limited to company-sized deployments or smaller.

Obama insists that the latest deployment of troops into Iraq, which the Pentagon has suggested will be in the 100 soldier level, will “squeeze and ultimately destroy” ISIS. During his comments, he continued to play up the idea that the war is going well, insisting ISIS is totally incapable of launching Paris-style attacks within the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this an attempt at damage control, over how poorly the US has done in getting rid of jihadists in Syria, and its reluctance to go after US- trained, funded, and equipped ISIS?!?

If Russia is able to eradicate the rest of the jihadists here quickly, there will be no need for US troops on the ground in Syria.

And Iraq's Prime Minister has stated publicly, that any more US troops deployed in Iraq will be viewed as "...a form of aggression."

I do not know what President Obama is thinking, but he has lost both all credibility, and his reality license, simultaneously.

Saudi Warplanes Bomb Another MSF Hospital in Yemen

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has reported that for the second time this month, one of their hospitals in Yemen was destroyed by a Saudi airstrike, this time in the contested city of Taiz. The attack left the clinic badly damaged, and at least nine wounded.

MSF Yemen Director Jerome Alin said there was “no way” the Saudis didn’t know the facility was a hospital, and that MSF had been giving them the coordinates of all their sites on a regular basis, most recently on November 29.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the HELL is wrong with the Saudi military, to continue to do this in Yemen, and did the US government give a green light on this strike?!?

I am sickened by the carnage this US government-enabled war on the Yemenite people has created.

Media flood shooters' home after landlord allows them in

On Friday morning, reporters were allowed by a landlord to enter the apartment of Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik.

A man was seen using a crowbar to open the plywood-covered front door, allowing a rush of reporters, photographers and videographers to spill into the home.

The chaotic scene of reporters and TV cameras going through the apartment was broadcast live on news channels.

Reporters were shown on networks rifling through what appeared to be personal information, including driver's licenses. Some were shown going through photos and entering closets.

The scene had been closed off since the shooting. It was not immediately clear if law enforcement officials had allowed the apartment to be accessed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The scene is hopelessly contaminated with regards to evidence. Even if there were evidence that exonerated the couple, it would be dismissed as being planted or altered by one of the crowd.

Iraq PM: Foreign Troop Deployments Would Be ‘Act of Aggression’

Despite the Pentagon announcing their latest deployment of combat troops into Iraq in the context of an “invitation” by the Iraqi government, and insisting they had consultations, Iraqi PM Hayder Abadi continues to insist the US deployment was neither discussed with the government nor welcome.

In his latest statement, made through his official Facebook page, Abadi reiterated that no foreign ground troops from any country had been requested by Iraq, and that any new deployment would be viewed as an “act of aggression.”

The US has been steadily increasing troop levels in Iraq and Syria, with Defense Secretary Ash Carter bragging the US now has “tens of thousands of personnel” in the region. The deployments have fueled growing objections from Shi’ite militias the government is depending on in the war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short question to President Obama, SecDef Carter, Secretary of State and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Joseph Dunford; gentlemen, "If "no means no" in a relationship, why does it not mean NO, when dealing with a head of state in a foreign country?!?!

Forgive me, but I am really confused right now!

San Bernardino Media Hoax: CNN, Media and ‘Victims Families’ Ransack Suspects Family Home Crime Scene

Today saw another new low-point in American broadcast journalism, as members of the media and public ransacked the shooting suspects family home in Redlands, California. On closer examination, however, what is on display here has very little to do with journalism, and everything to do with staged ‘synthetic terror’.

It appears that both mainstream media and law enforcement are becoming increasingly desperate to sell an ever-more embellished and fantastic story line surrounding this latest alleged ‘Mass Shooting’ event that we’re told took place on Wednesday in San Bernardino, California.

The woman who helped her husband kill 14 people at a Christmas party for his co-workers pledged allegiance to Islamic State and its leader on Facebook using an alias, then deleted the messages before the attack, officials have said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Using an alias." Meaning someone started a Facebook account, made the pledge to link the false-flag to ISIS, then deleted the posts (which Facebook obviously is keeping on all of us), and we're supposed to assume that Tashfeen was really behind this aliased Facebook account.

And if you believe THAT one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

Killer Drone News Blackout Continues as Mainstream Media Ignore Four Whistleblowers

The polls show it and commentators of all political stripes often cite the figures: Killer drone attacks by the U.S. military and the CIA in the Greater Middle East and Africa have strong US public support. According to the Pew Research Center’s most recent poll in May, 58 percent – up slightly from 56 percent in February 2013 – approve of “missile strikes from drones to target extremists in such countries as Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.” The numbers of Americans disapproving of drone attacks actually increased from 26 percent to 35 percent over that two-year period – a hopeful sign, but still very much a minority view.

Ukraine concentrates military groupings on border with Crimea, Transdniestria — Poroshenko

Ukraine has concentrated military groupings on the border with Crimea and Transdniestria, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said addressing the military on Friday. "We have focused powerful groupings in the direction of Crimea and unrecognized Transdniestria," he said. "We have increased the real rather than ‘paper’ strength of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. We have created groups of troopers who cover of all potentially dangerous directions, including from the sides of Crimea and unrecognized Transdniestria," the Ukrainian president said adding that it was the purpose why Ukraine had to carry out several mobilization campaigns and increase the numerical strength of its armed forces... According to Ukraine’s defense minister, the strength of Ukrainian army has nearly doubled over the past year to 280,000 people. Seventy thousand Ukrainian troopers are deployed on the disengagement line in Donbas.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recalled a Russian saying that means "guilty mind is never at ease" in connection with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s claims that he allegedly has evidence that Russia is involved in oil trade with the Islamic State terrorist group. "I haven’t heard that statement. But it is strange that it was voiced many days after the issue of illegal oil trade got to media, when we presented specific facts," Lavrov said. Earlier, the Turkish president said as quoted by AFP that he allegedly has evidence that Russia is involved in oil trade with the Islamic State. He explained that he believes such evidence is accusations against a Syrian businessman who, according to Erdogan, allegedly buys oil from the IS. Ergogan claimed the businessman "has a Russian passport."

Russian warplanes destroy 12 fuel pump stations in Syria in a week — Defense Ministry

"Over the past day alone Sukhoi-34 bombers attacked two truck convoys on the roads in the areas of Aleppo and Raqqah to destroy up to 40 tanker trucks and other vehicles equipped for transporting fuel supplies". Earlier, the Defense Ministry said that Russian air strikes had caused the militants’ incomes from illegal oil trade to fall by half from $3 million to $1.5 million. The terrorists have at their disposal about 8,500 tanker trucks carrying more than 200,000 barrels of crude a day.

Russia keeps US and NATO flotilla in Black Sea at gunpoint

A flotilla of NATO and US warships entered the Black Sea yesterday, on December 3. The flotilla consists of USS Ross and NATO constant readiness vessels - Francisco de Almeida of Portugal, Blas de Lezo of Spain and Winnipeg of Canada. According to US naval officials, USS Ross entered the Black Sea to ensure peace and stability in the region. By approaching Russian maritime border, NATO warships intend to cooperate with "allies and partners"... NATO ships will sink in ten minutes, should they attack Russia. The ships of non-Black Sea countries, according to the statute, are allowed to stay in the area for not longer than 21 days. A division of the Russian Black Sea Navy took the foreign flotilla at gunpoint. This is a normal practice for all countries, when foreign warships enter their territorial waters.

In a new video that appeared on the Internet, the militants said that France was only the beginning, and now is the turn for Russia and the USA to experience terror. The terrorists, who speak English in the video, promise that new attacks will take place in three cities - New York, Washington and Moscow. "We will come to you with our weapons and our explosives," the black man in the video says. Not that long ago, Daesh terrorists promised to take revenge on the countries whose armed forces were involved in the fight against the terrorist organization in Syria. Furthermore, it was reported on December 4 that Daesh terrorists were planning to attack Russian tourists in Thailand on New Year holidays. According to Russian special services, attacks are possible in Pattaya, Phuket and Bangkok.

'It doesn't seem plausible to us': Family of US Muslim who killed 14 says they don't believe official account of the massacre and even suggest the Sandy Hook slaying didn't take place

A lawyer representing the family of San Bernardino gunman Syed Farook has questioned accounts of the massacre which saw Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik kill 14 at a holiday party on Wednesday morning.

Attorney David Chesley said they doubted the accuracy of information released by the police and FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is ample reason to doubt the official story. History shows that all rulers control their people through lies, fraud, and deception, especially when it comes to taking away freedoms or starting wars. Remember Tony Blair's "Dodgy Dossier", plagiarized from an outdated student thesis? Or the claim that Saddam had nuclear weapons? Going back further in history there was the lie that Lusitania was not smuggling weapons from the US to Germany (divers confirmed the holds of the remains of Lusitania were carrying weapons in the 1980s). There was the lie that a Spanish mine destroyed the USS Maine in Havana Harbor which was used to launch the Spanish/American war. The Captain of the Maine, Charles Sigsbee, reported that the ship was destroyed by a fire in a coal bunker, and that report was confirmed by later investigations, including one led by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover. The torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin President Johnson cited to escalate the Vietnam war never existed; the initial report of an attack was an error by a novice sonar operator who heard his own ship's propellers. Reichstagg Fire, Gleiwitz Incident, and on and on and on and on.

If the governments of the US and UK find they have a huge credibility problem and that nobody trusts them, it is of their own making.

UK has joined a hard, bloody battle against Isis with no coherent plan

The battle against Islamic State will be long and protracted, the defence secretary, Michael Fallon, has said in broadcast interviews. Defeating Isis in Iraq would be difficult enough but destroying it in Syria, the campaign the UK has now joined, was going to be much harder.

David Cameron warns of lengthy Syria campaign
Read more
There is a plan of sorts – helping both the Iraqi army and the Kurds – for retaking Iraqi territory held by Isis. But nothing remotely coherent by way of a strategy for destroying Isis in Syria. It is optimistically based on air power and a small band of US special forces.

The RAF airstrike against the Omar oilfield, the opening action of the Syrian campaign was hailed by Fallon as a “serious blow”. It certainly will hurt Isis revenue gathering. But the terror group has other sources of revenue and is better financed by far than either al-Qaida or the Taliban.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reality here is that Russia has been invited by the Syrian government to get rid of all radicals, including those trained, funded, and supplied by the West; France, the UK, and the US, have NOT been invited to do this.

What Cameron, and the UK Parliament have done, is to declare war against the Syrian government, which has done absolutely nothing to the UK, to further muddy the waters, and encourage a military confrontation with Russia.

Russia's leadership is adamant that al-Assad stay on through the transition period here, because to remove him now would absolutely guarantee a leadership vacuum, of which militants could take sharp advantage; Putin and Lavrov are absolutely correct in their thinking here. Neither will back down in this, and will support Al-Assad to the point of a military conflict with the West, if that is how things shake out.

Neither man wants war, but see Russia's support of Al-Assad a very public demonstration that Russia will not turn on its geopolitical friends, even if there is a cost to be paid.

For the governments of the US, the Uk, France, and Germany to believe, for one second, that Russia will "back out" of their commitment to the Al-Assad government is ludicrous and naive in the extreme, and unfortunately may well pay the price with the lives of their deployed citizens.

The Obama administration reacted to yesterday’s shooting in San Bernardino – likely carried out by a Muslim terrorist – by insisting that “common sense” gun laws will deter jihadists who are planning attacks.

Reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest: “Does the President really think that common sense gun laws would deter terrorists now that he has admitted that these two may have been terrorists?”
“Yes. The president believes that passing common sense gun laws that makes it harder for people with bad intentions to get guns, makes the country safer,” responded Earnest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a palm to forehead moment, at warp-speed velocity, upon reading this.

No, Mr. President, "common sense gun laws" will be evaded by people committed to do bad things, and that is just the reality.

Sometimes, the degree of self-delusion in this Administration is just amazing.

GOP Senator Wants A Coalition Of 100,000 Troops In Iraq And Syria

The call for 100,000 troops -- a full-scale war -- exceeds the bids by hawks in Johnson's party, including Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and John McCain (Ariz.), for numbers closer to 10,000 on the ground.
Johnson, in an interview with Wisconsin reporter Mike Gousha for the local ABC affiliate's "Up Front," likened taking out ISIS to the first Gulf War, in which President George H.W. Bush used a global coalition to push Iraq's Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait. What that has to do with ISIS, though, is hard to discern.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have looked at Johnson's bio, and he has absolutely no military experience or expertise whatsoever, which makes this observation completely chilling in its naivete.

The ultimate result of such a course of action as he prescribes here may well be be World War III, with the West and NATO facing off against Russia.

Four Louisiana Prison Officers Charged In Death Of Young Mother

A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted four corrections officers from Louisiana's St. Bernard Parish Prison on civil rights charges, alleging that they deliberately ignored the medical needs of a 19-year-old mother who died behind bars.
Nimali Henry was locked up for 10 days after being arrested on minor charges. Her family had been unable to afford the $25,000 bond. On April 1, 2014, she was found lying face down in an isolation cell just before 8 a.m.
About two weeks earlier, Henry had been trying to see her 4-month-old daughter when she got into a dispute with another woman. Her daughter and her daughter's father were at this woman's house.
Henry was arrested for disturbing the peace, simple battery and unauthorized entry, and bond was set. But "nobody could come up with [the money]," said her sister, 20-year-old Deshawna Henry, according to a Times-Picayune report.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Says Obama Policies Could Trigger Nuclear War With Russia

U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) continued her harsh criticisms of the Obama administration's foreign policy, saying actions against the Islamic State group could lead the U.S. into a "devastating nuclear war" with Russia.
Gabbard's warning on Tuesday was directed at Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, who testified during a House Armed Services Committee hearing about America's strategy to defeat ISIS in Iraq.
Gabbard, a vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said she could "only presume" that President Barack Obama’s recent decision to deploy American fighter jets to the border between Turkey and Syria was to "target Russian planes." The two countries' "diametrically opposed objectives" with air strikes in Syria, she said, create a "strong potential" for a head-to-head military conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gabbard may well have committed political suicide with this stance, but she is absolutely correct in her assessment of the situation.

And Carter's characterisation of the current crisis in Syria as "... a diplomatic problem, not a military danger..." is reckless in the extreme, in light of the fact this administration seems hell-bent to creating a military confrontation with Russia over Syria.

Dec 04 09:27


Days before the dramatic military escalation between Turkey and Russia, we reported that in order to assure that the Syria proxy war has all the naval support the US-led alliance will need in the coming weeks, both a French and a US aircraft carrier were "steaming" full speed toward the Mediterranean sea, just off the coast of Syria.

As we noted, "the Truman is expected to reach the Persian Gulf before the year’s end. The U.S. has been launching air strikes into Iraq and Syria from aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf — at least until last month, when the USS Theodore Roosevelt left the area after an extended deployment. The two-month gap is the first in nearly a decade that the U.S. has had no carrier in the region."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government is preparing for a military confrontation with Russia over Syria, which may well start with a US-engineered false flag, and is putting all its assets in place for such an outcome.

Amassing assets for a military campaign is costly, logistically challenging, and generally will not be done if those assets will not be used.

And as the oceans around Syria are becoming more crowded, the potential for some kind false flag escalates, to be blamed on Russia, and then the situation here may well be heading straight into World War III.

Climate-Change Meatheads Going After Meat

Apparently that strategy was limited in its usefulness, because eventually the loony lefties replaced “it’s to save the children!” with “it’s to save the planet!” That’s why Dr. Patrick Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace, eventually quit the organization. He saw environmentalism being hijacked (as he put it) by the political and social causes of the left. Science took a back seat to politics. As Dr. Moore put it in an essay he wrote back in March:

Binney tells Washington’s Blog:

If you want to get into the real reason politicians, companies and agencies are hard over advocates for mass/bulk surveillance, then you need to look at all the money involved. It’s about 100 Billion (that’s with a B) per year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Binney's proposal sounds good, on its face, but his suggestion about replacing layers of security agencies with more agencies and managers simply gives us more government-enabled, Stasi-like spying.

But he absolutely misses the point here; the best way to stop terror in the US is to both stop mucking about in other peoples' countries to expropriate resources to which this country has no moral right, and stop with regime change, at the cost of those US-installed puppets not giving a damn about the wants and needs of the people over whom they have been set to rule.

Just ask any Iranian living during the time of the rule of the Shah of Iran, and they will give you an earful on that.

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it; that is precisely what is happening at the top echelons of government and military leadership right now.

San Bernardino Evidence of Multi-Agency Drill, Staging Areas, Set-up in Less Than 90 Minutes

As we go to press, police marksmen appear to have shot-up a black SUV, with one suspect killed, one severely wounded [later pronounced dead] and another escaping on foot according to NBC News live coverage. It’s still unconfirmed whether the SUV passengers are actually the same men who were the original ‘active shooters’ at the original crime scene.

White House: Obama Thinks Gun Control Will Deter Terrorists

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The latest word from San Bernardino is that that at least one of the guns found with the accused shooters is a police weapon!

Paris has very strict gun laws, and the shooters there were using military weapons. So how does banning guns for law-abiding Americans in any way affect criminals and terrorists?

Cameron's 'dodgy dossier': MoD rubbished claim that there are 70,000 anti-ISIS fighters in Syria – but PM used it anyway

Military top brass warned David Cameron against controversially claiming there were 70,000 friendly troops ready to take on Islamic State in Syria, it was claimed last night.

Ministry of Defence figures were said to have balked at the figure, amid fears it was an over-estimate and could become the government's 'dodgy dossier'.

The unnamed senior officers had apparently tried to stop Mr Cameron from mentioning the figure in his speech to the House of Commons for fear it could become his '45 minutes moment', The Times reported.

By Brandon Turbeville

Wetherspoon’s hack: pub chain’s website hit by huge cyber attack, personal information and credit card details lost

Wetherspoon’s has been hacked, potentially putting hundreds of thousands of its customers’ information at risk.

The pub company said that 650,000 people might have had their personal details leaked, and that the card details of 100 people had been compromised.

The company said that those credit card details couldn’t be used on their own to steal money. But the stolen personal information will probably be sold on the black market, and the company recommends that customers stay vigilant.

Two MPs being investigated in criminal expenses inquiry

Police are investigating two MPs over their taxpayer-funded expenses.

A Met Police spokesman has confirmed that it is investigating two cases referred to it by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) - which oversees MPs' expenses - in March this year.

Scotland Yard has said the two cases involve sitting MPs on the suspicion that they have committed criminal offences, according to the Evening Standard.

The Met Police said a third case was also referred to it in March, which resulted in a 33-year-old woman, an MP's aide, receiving a caution for fraud by false representation.

Israel’s ‘Successful’ Defeat on Iran

A senior German official told me in 2010, quite proudly, that under the leadership of Angela Merkel, Germany’s Iran policy had become a function of its relations with Israel. Whether Germany would sanction Iran or engage in diplomacy very much depended on Israel’s reaction. In its simplest form, the German official was explaining to me the process of “Israelizing” Iran — that is, turning one’s policy towards Iran broadly into a function one’s relationship with Israel.

Police Search For Motive Behind San Bernardino Shooting

David Bowdich, assistant regional director of the FBI, said Thursday that the couple had made trips to Pakistan and that Malik was in the U.S. on a visa. Although authorities have not yet singled out a motive, a U.S. intelligence official told the Associated Press that Farook had been in touch with extremists on social media accounts, and that the FBI had been monitoring the situation.

San Bernardino, Drills, 3rd Shooter and other weird stuff

According to this last tweet, police, at the time of the shooting death of the two suspects, believed there was a third person still on the loose. Within three hours, the police were confident there was only two shooters the entire time. Seems a bit quick to me, I don’t know, maybe they compiled eyewitness reports and were able to confirm that with the actual victims.

That would be incredibly fast police work considering the horror and barrage of information going on all around them.

The LA Times reported,

Chief Burguan said it was not clear if a third person taken into custody after the shootout with the police was involved. “We are reasonably confident that we have two shooters and we have two dead suspects,” he said.

This third person at the scene of the shootout was eventually let go, but based on the timeline of events, this would not account for the previously reported “third shooter”.

Training Officers to Shoot First, and He Will Answer Questions Later

When police officers shoot people under questionable circumstances, Dr. Lewinski is often there to defend their actions. Among the most influential voices on the subject, he has testified in or consulted in nearly 200 cases over the last decade or so and has helped justify countless shootings around the country.

His conclusions are consistent: The officer acted appropriately, even when shooting an unarmed person. Even when shooting someone in the back. Even when witness testimony, forensic evidence or video footage contradicts the officer’s story.

“There’s a big chunk of America…that considers her untrustworthy,” Klein said. “Some of the truth has caught up with her.

ISIL War: US Claim Has Never Stood Up to Basic Scrutiny

The Pentagon chief is right to say “most of Turkish air operations are not directed at ISIL, they are directed at the PKK, and we would like to see them do more against ISIL.” However, he is wrong to assume the same cannot be said about the United States.

The problem with Carter’s criticism is that Washington and its so-called international coalition have been rather shy in their efforts to try and eliminate ISIL bases. Just like Turkey, they have failed to show any significant performance in the war - both in the air and on the ground. So yes, we would also like to see them do more against ISIL.

Top NSA Whistleblower: “Every Time There Is a Terrorist Attack, What We Really Need to Do Is Demand that They CUT the Budgets of All the Intelligence Agencies”

If you want to get into the real reason politicians, companies and agencies are hard over advocates for mass/bulk surveillance, then you need to look at all the money involved. It’s about 100 Billion (that’s with a B) per year.

When NSA Director Alexander said their objective is to “collect it all”, then that simply exposed the underlying reason for all this spying. That committed the government to collecting an ever increasing year-by-year amount of data which takes an ever increasing year-by-year amount of money to do. And to achieve that, they use fear mongering and lies to mislead and bamboozle us into letting them take more and more of our money to achieve very little.

Do Mass Killings Bother You?

We now know this. A young man who had successfully killed on a large scale went to his religious leader with doubts and was told that mass killing was part of God's plan. The young man continued killing until he had participated in killing sprees that took 1,626 lives -- men, women, and children.

I repeat: his death count was not the 16 or 9 or 22 lives that make top news stories, but 1,626 dead and mutilated bodies.

Do such things bother you?

What if you learned that this young man's name was Brandon Bryant, and that he killed as a drone pilot for the U.S. Air Force, and that he was presented with a certificate for his 1,626 kills and congratulated on a job well done by the United States of America? What if you learned that his religious leader was a Christian chaplain?

Do such things still bother you?

Arizona Republicans to Congress: Authorize ISIS war

U.S. Reps. Matt Salmon and Trent Franks are adding pressure to update the United States' war authorization to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Matt and Trent, if you really feel that way ... Here are your rifles, here are a couple parachutes, we ran out of the desert camo gear but here are two bright da-glo orange jumpsuits left over from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your heads climbing into that transport and we will call Assad and tell him you are on your way to kick his butt all by yourselves.

But, one thought before you leave. The Paris attackers all carried EU passports. None of them were from Syria. And they were not Muslim. The accused female suicide bomber took naked selfies of herself. The accused mastermind drank whisky and did drugs. So by what convoluted rational does Syria get bombed for this?

What is interesting is how the US keeps on describing Syria's Assad as a dictator while turning a blind eye to what their "friends" are doing in places like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turker. Erdogan wants to toss one person in prison for two years over a single tweet comparing Erdogan to the character Gollum in "Lord Of The Rings!" That is clearly the sort of behavior one sees in a tyrant.

Was San Bernardino Shooting a False Flag?

Now the police say this shooting started because of a dispute at a party, at which point the shooters went home, dressed in what mainstream media calls assault clothing and grabbed assault rifles.

There are also reports of bombs at the scene, which tells me that this is a premeditated attack.

Nurses in the center thought today’s shooting was a drill.

This occurred in a area with gun control already in place and monsters like Hillary Clinton have taken to Twitter to call for more gun control.

Another False Flag Shooting Proves Obama Is Implementing His 17th and Final Element of Martial Law

Michael Adams is reporting that yesterday’s mass murder has all the elements of a false flag event ad I wholeheartedly agree with im. Coupled with the Oregon shootings earlier this fall and with all of this most recent rash of contrived shootings, speaks to Obama’s intent to seize American guns by one means or another. I do not think Obama is foolish enough to perpetrate a Lexington and Concord event. He will simply declare guns to be illegal and go after high profile dissidents through organizations such as Jade Helm 16 which has emerged to replace Jade Helm 15. He will also move to make ammunition nearly unobtainable through taxation.

Azov seeks to found private military corporation, send troops to fight Russia in Syria

“Given the cooling of relations with Russia and given the fact that there are clashes between Russian and Turkish interests in Syria, it is perfectly logical for Turkey to seek contacts from Ukraine, as this would be logical for Ukraine as well. I can assure you that, for example, Azov could perfectly carry out this function of collecting a foreign legion and sending it to Syria to fight, roughly speaking, for the Western coalition. And we could work against the Russians on a new field while we have a ceasefire once again which is good for Donbass,” Biletsky said.

The presenter, Vasily Golovanov, after listening to the guest, asked what he had in mind: a fight alongside Russia or a struggle against Russia. Golovanov assumed that Biletsky spoke about a fight against the Russian Federation.

“Of course, that’s the point,” Biletsky said to the assumption of Golovanov.

The Mossad accelerates its strategy against BDS

It's already very difficult for Israel to combat BDS. It's something akin to trying to against fight a shifting sand dune. BDS is a diffuse and broad movement, which, although it has popular and influential figures supporting it, has no central leadership or cadres that Israel could remove through its various nefarious means. More fundamentally, it's pretty hard to force people to buy Israel products, or make them participate in Israeli propaganda initiatives against their will or interest. Furthermore, although some people can be bought-off, intimidated, or otherwise coerced into silence, it's pretty much impossible to stop everyone talking about an idea or a strategy.

Security Theater: Customary Federal Pointlessness

Fred on Terrorism and Government!

A few cheering thoughts on terrorism. This column specializes in cheering thoughts.

The notion that the government can prevent terrorism suggests studied inattention to the obvious. To begin, the intelligence agencies have proved useless. NSA did not prevent the first attack on the Twin Towers in 1993, nor the successful one.

It is interesting to remember that terrorism is not bad for everybody. For the Pentagon, Nine-Eleven was a windfall, providing wars and new drones; for NSA, a massive expansion in its powers; for Israel and AIPAC, the destruction of Israel’s arch-enemy, Iraq; for the arms manufacturers, hundreds of billions; for the federal government in general, near-dictatorship and, for jihadists, the involvement of the US in crippling and endless wars. Which is what they wanted. Everybody profited except the American public.

A decade later, the younger Bush seemingly outdid his father by toppling the Taliban in Afghanistan and then making short work of Saddam himself — a liberation twofer achieved in less time than it takes Americans to choose a president. After the passage of another decade, Barack Obama got into the liberation act, overthrowing the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in what appeared to be a tidy air intervention with a clean outcome. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton memorably put it, “We came, we saw, he died.” End of story.
