American Lawmakers Must Pledge to Support Israel or Risk Funding, Says Former US Member of Congress

Former US lawmaker Cynthia McKinney says every candidate for Congress must pledge to support Israel's military superiority in the region and continued large-scale US funding for the Zionist state, or risk losing the ability to raise funds for election campaigns. "If you don't sign the pledge, you don't get money," she says in this in this interview with Marzieh Hashemi, an American-born journalist who lives in Iran. "You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel, that the economic assistance that Israel wants, that you would vote to provide that," she adds. If a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, "then you do not get money to run your campaign," McKinney says. After she made the pledge public, she says, the tactic changed, but the basic requirement remained. Runtime: 4:35 mins.

Film: EXPULSION - Syrian Christians under attack from ISIS/FSA and NATO

A documentary short film on Syrian Christians
by Anastasia Popova
2015
Anastasia Popova’s brief documentary film Expulsion (Izgnanie), made for the Russian television channel Rossiia, focuses on the plight of Christians in war-torn Syria. This subject is worthy of greater attention than it has received in the mainstream Western media, hence our effort to subtitle her project.
After all, Christians are one the most persecuted groups in the world. Their depopulation is a general trend in the entire Middle East and North African region (MENA), not just in Syria. This documentary states that, for instance, half of Palestine’s population was once Christian, but now only 5% remain.

Donald Trump is the only presidential candidate willing to tell the truth about vaccines.

Paul Larudee: We Must Make the Occupation Impossible for Israel to Continue

Israel maintains its military occupation of Palestine after some 6 decades, but a noted political activist believes that the cost of occupation should be raised so that it’s no longer possible for Tel Aviv to keep on suppressing the Palestinians.
According to Mr. Larudee, what’s happening in the Palestinian territories and the Gaza Strip these days is a “human-made disaster” which the Israelis have created and the world community has condoned. “This is a human-made disaster and the disaster is continuing because it is the Israeli policy to maintain the maximum level of disaster that the world will permit; and the world is quite tolerant in permitting a very high level of disaster,” he said.

Iraq shows off airstrike by new Chinese-made combat drone (VIDEO)

The US will lose most of their arms exporting business over the next few years.

The Iraqi military has released a video displaying the combat deployment of a CH-4B drone which the country recently bought from China. Baghdad has been diversifying its arms supply to decrease its reliance on American producers.

The Caihong (Rainbow) 4B drone flew from the al-Kut Air Base southeast of Baghdad and shot an AR-1 laser-guided anti-tank missile at an Islamic State target, according to the Iraqi Defense Ministry. The first-ever Iraqi combat drone mission was supervised by Defense Minister Khaled-al-Obeidi.

Hezbollah attack kills 5 'ISIS' fighters in north Lebanon

Check out this comment in The Jerusalem Post. Bob Ben-Gurion • 2 days ago

Immediately prior to my stint in Vietnam (many, many years ago ... even before many posters here were even born), I was heartened to know that I (and others) had received the very finest “training” that the American military could provide. And that --- coupled with the very latest in weaponry --- caused me to adopt a now-strange feeling of invincibility. The very first time that a VC mortar shell
exploded, some tens of yards from my position, that notion of “invincibility”
immediately evaporated … and I soiled my combat fatigues. Even now, at 67-years old, I will never forget that singular moment in time: the noise, and the
screams, and the smells, and the fear.

But as time went on, and I experienced more and more of those dreadful moments … I got used to it … AND IT WAS THEN THAT I TRULY BECAME A REAL SOLDIER.

'Russia Expert' Timothy Snyder Busted Down to Size

In this piece addressed to the editor of TIME, Tina Jennings blows the lid off another mainstream lackey spreading misinformation about Russian policy...
In the UK, a poll taken in the last few days showed that over 70% supported Russian moves in Syria. We would do well to take Putin at his word now and again. He chooses his words exceedingly carefully and doesn't do sound bites. The result of this approach is that Putin not only means what he says, he also says what he means. This is so refreshing by the standards of ordinary politicians we're accustomed to in the West that it may feel perplexing, even disorientating, for some. So when Putin warned at the UN two weeks ago that “we can no longer tolerate the state of affairs in the world today”, a remark that resonated with millions of people around the world, he meant exactly that. No need for faux bafflement from across the Atlantic.

You knew it was coming…
After the installation of a US-orchestrated and controlled puppet regime in Kiev the next logical step was announced today. The Ukrainian government filed an application for admission into the US as federal state No. 51.
One motivation for this step was the problem that many American citizens who are to pose as Ukraine's new government have refused to accept Ukrainian citizenship. Ukraine does not allow any form of dual citizenship and people possessing two passports can be severely fined by the Ukrainan authorities. “So we considered the matter very carefully and now we are able to kill two birds with one stone. The Russian aggressor will now think twice if he really is willing to attack U.S. territory “ a government spokesperson explained.

Taliban militants overrun district in northeastern Afghanistan

The Taliban militant group has taken control of a district in Afghanistan’s northeastern province of Badghis, as Afghan government forces are battling the militants at other fronts elsewhere in the war-battered country.

Major Reza Rezaee, the spokesman for Afghanistan’s 209th Shaheen Military Corps, said Taliban militants overran Ghormach district, situated about 500 kilometers (310 miles) northwest of the capital, Kabul, early Sunday, following heavy clashes with Afghan security forces.

He added that security forces alongside government officials have holed up inside a military base in the district, and the Taliban terrorists are tightening the noose around them.

A local security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Taliban terrorists have seized the district governor's compound as well as police headquarters.

He added the Taliban have set the police headquarters on fire.

Donald Trump Sets Off Firestorm With Comments on 9-11 Terrorist Attacks

Donald Trump set off a firestorm on Friday with comments during a Bloomberg interview that implied George W. Bush was somehow to blame for the 9-11 terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bloomberg is being dishonest here. Trump said Bush was President when the towers came down. And he was. As President, he was sitting in that school in Sarasota Florida reading about pet goats when the 9-11 attacks happened. Trump didn't say Bush had anything to do with it. But I am willing to cross that line, because in the video of Bush's visit to the school, White House aid Andy Card comes in top inform Bush of the second plane hitting the second tower at which point everyone knows this is a terror attack.

So where is the Secret Service protective detail in that video? Do they rush in and grab the President, toss him in his armored limo and take off? They do not. Why? Bush's presence at the school was announced in the media a week ahead of time and there is an airport just four miles away. Nobody could know for a fact there wasn't an airplane on its way to crash into the school that very moment ... if you accept the official story. We all remember how the Secret Service protective detail sprang into action when Reagan was shot, yet here they all stand still!

But from the inaction of the Secret Service protective detail, it is clear that Bush's Secret Service knew he was not a target, and the only way they could know that is that they know ahead of time what the targets would be that day.

QED, The Bush administration was indeed part of the 9-11 plot, to create the "New Pearl Harbor" the Project for the New American Century said they needed in their policy paper, Rebuilding America's Defenses."

Jeb Bush’s epic implosion: Why it’s high time he gave up his presidential fantasy

Bush may not yet have packed it in, but we might as well start shoveling dirt on his campaign. The chances he can overcome poll numbers consistently stuck in single digits, the baggage of his last name and his near-daily gaffes, are slim to none. To paraphrase a famous comedy bit, his presidential ambitions’ metabolic processes are now history, they are off the twig, they have kicked the bucket, shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible. THIS IS AN EX-CAMPAIGN!

Google degenerates into Ministry of Truth; all knowledge must now be pre-approved by search algorithm

Gone are the days when you could search Google and pull up neutral, relevant content appropriate to your search query. The search engine giant is reportedly pioneering a new search algorithm that will tailor search results not based on popularity or accuracy, but rather on what Google itself deems to be truthful or untruthful.

The world's new "Ministry of Truth", Google believes that screening and censoring information requested by its users will help avoid "websites full of misinformation" from showing up at the top of the search list. Known as the "Knowledge Vault," the novel algorithm is described by The New American as "an automated and super-charged version of Google's manually compiled fact database called Knowledge Graph."

The Darkening of Color Revolutions: Maidan Regime Investigates Its Founders for Mass Murder

The Maidan myth is as follows: Dastardly Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich ordered special forces’ and police snipers to fire on peaceful demonstrators killing nearly a hundred and wounding even more. This led to the storming of government buildings and the overthrow of the Yanukovich regime. Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, head of Ukraine’s equivalent of the KGB or FSB, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), until May 2015, said in February 2015 that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s advisor Vladislav Surkov coordinated the massacre (http://gordonhahn.com/2015/02/20/another-rusological-fail-u-s-experts-...). After a committee hearing in Ukraine’s Supreme Rada, Nalyvaichnko was forced to walk his unproven claim back. He was soon fired, presumably for ineffective strategic communications or propaganda. Now the Maidan regime appears ready to revise the history of the Maidan revolution of February 2014 in the proper direction.

How The West Underestimated Russia’s Military Power

Russia’s military reforms have been misunderstood and its capabilities underestimated by the United States and Europe. That’s the conclusion of a new report by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR).

The Russian military’s tactical and operational weaknesses became most blatantly apparent to the Kremlin during the 2008 Russo-Georgian War, when the U.S.-trained Georgian forces proved a much more agile and motivated adversary than expected.

As a consequence, Russia initiated the most far-reaching military (the “new look”) reforms since the 1930s divided up into three distinct phases, according to the ECFR study:

First, increasing professionalism by overhauling the education of personnel and cutting the number of conscripts; second, improving combat-readiness with a streamlined command structure and additional training exercises; and third, rearming and updating equipment.

The KAB-250 is a follow-on to the larger KAB-500 PGM, which made its combat debut in September in Syria. There are two versions of the 250-kilogram KAB: a laser-guided version and a satellite-guided version.

Based on the “drop-and-forget” principle, the KAB-250 guided aerial bomb incorporates the latest advances in science and technology, including the experience of its KAB-500 predecessor.

The inertial guidance system directs the bomb towards the target area. Two to three kilometers from the target the bomb’s onboard computer commands the thermal homing head to acquire the designated target.

ISIS Fighters Could Gain LEGAL Entry Into EU, Thanks to Europe’s New Schengen Visa Deal for Turkey

Turkey is set to pick up a few big sweeteners from Brussels if ‘tries’ to stop refugee flow into Europe – even though it’s nearly impossible for Ankara to actually come good on its lofty promise to ‘contain’ the large refugee flow through Turkey into the European promise land.

It’s true that Turkey has accommodated roughly 2 million Syrian refugees, and is said to have spent over nearly $8 billion on the crisis thus far.

What they are not telling us however, is that Turkey has been the primary facilitator of the Syrian conflict, mainly by hosting terrorist and ‘rebel’ training and equipping for tens of thousands of fighters since 2011, as well as providing a continuous safe haven for terrorist fighters – freely coming and going over its southern border with Syria.

GAZERNICA

Gaza epitomizes the epicenter of the harrowing ethos and pathos of human conscientiousness — the thesaurus to every psychological algorithm imaginable or inflictable upon a dispossessed people.

For more than 60 years and several generations going forward, the people of Gaza — who were culturally and ancestrally uprooted from their homeland — have since steadfastly endured the abysmal scourge of survival and strangulated coexistence.

The credibility of today's psychology, therefore, cannot be given a conscientious accreditation if its corpus utterly lacks any or all substantial reference to the psychologically inherited traumas of Gazans and the corresponding physical catastrophes they have been continually subjected to.

It is time for defiance of authority to become the major part of human behavior, if humans are to survive!

YOUR CHANCE TO STAND WITH PALESTINE

SOLIDARITY WITH THE PALESTINIAN UPRISING: Counter Rally to a Zionist Protest Sunday October 18 at 4 PM

In the past few weeks over 30 Palestinians have been killed and more than 2,000 wounded in acts of IDF/settler agression in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza.

BRING A PALESTINIAN FLAG AND A KEFFIYEH WITH YOU. We will make Times Square a SEA of Palestinian flags to show the zionists how many stand with our cause.

In response to the justified uprising of the Palestinian people, Zionist activists have chosen to organize a ‘Jewish Lives Matter’ rally in Times Square this Sunday, October 18th at 5:00pm. They will be wearing blue and white to represent Israel, as well as IDF t-shirts. Besides the fact that they are appropriating the black liberation movement by hijacking the slogan Black Lives Matter, they are holding a moment of silence for murdered israelis without regard for the disproportionate violence and death experienced by the Palestinians every day.

Not all the action in the Old Testament took place in Palestine after all. It really happened in the fertile coastal hills of western Arabia. Or so claims Prof. Kamal Salibi, whose yet-to-be published book on the subject has already sparked a raging controversy.

Mr. Salibi, a distinguished professor of history at American University in Beirut, writes that the kingdoms of David and Solomon were established in what are now the Saudi provinces of Asir and the southern Hijaz. He says it is there, and not in Palestine, that the origins of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam should be sought.

Bernie Sanders Fulfils Promise to Sandra Bland’s Mother

During a chance encounter at a restaurant last week, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders met Sandra Bland’s mother and family members. Instead of using the private moment as a political photo op, Sen. Sanders promised to continue saying her daughter’s name in the pursuit of justice. At the Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders kept his promise to say her name.

In her blog, Rev. Hannah Bonner recalled eating with Sandra Bland’s mother, Geneva Reed-Veal, in a Thai restaurant at Union Station in Washington last week when they noticed Sanders sitting at another table. After Bonner asked the presidential candidate if he would like to meet Bland’s mother, Sanders replied, “Yes, please.”

Bonner wrote, “You do not often get to witness moments like that. Moments when agendas are laid aside and people who might not otherwise ever have the chance to connect without cameras watching can simply honor one another’s pain and humanity.”

Military Expert: New Victories Underway in Syria

Also this month, senior Political Analyst Ali Maqsoud said the army was preparing for massive and decisive operations in the Northern parts of Syria following the Russians' recent logistical backups

"Blizzard military operations which will be of decisive importance will soon start in Idlib, Jisr al-Shughour and Aleppo in the North," Maqsoud told FNA.

He noted that the army plans to destroy the enemy convoys that are on the move from Damascus to Homs and from there to Lattakia, Idlib and Hama in the operations.

Maqsoud, meantime, said the terrorist groups might increase their attacks on the Syrian army in the next few days as well, "but underlined that the US and Israeli plots are being defused in the region rapidly, and efforts to uproot terrorism in Syria have started".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Left to itself, the Syrian army probably could have defeated ISIS on its own, but with Israel's constant land-grabbing in the Golan, Syria had to split their forces, keeping a large portion of their men and arms in the south to hold Israel at bay. With Russia's entry, the dynamic has shifted, and we can assume that once ISIS is gone, Syria will move to reclaim their lands (and oil) in the Golan.

The Murder of JFK, Part 2: Counterfeit ID Planted in Oswald's Wallet?

My previous article recounted the details. FBI agent Bob Barrett said he saw Oswald’s wallet in the hands of DPD Captain Pinky Westbrook at the scene of the murder of Dallas police office J.D. Tippit on November 22, 1963.

The article also recounted that the arresting officer, Paul Bentley, told a different story. Bentley said he found Oswald’s wallet while frisking him in the police car after leaving the Texas Theatre, where Oswald was arrested on November 22.

Both men say that the wallet contained identification cards for both Lee Harvey Oswald and “Alek Hidell.”

So was Oswald carrying the Alek Hidell ID in his wallet when he was arrested?

He had not been previously seen using the ID card, or the Hidell alias. Oswald wasn’t carrying a “Hidell” ID card in his wallet three months before in August 1963 when he was arrested in New Orleans for fighting with Cuban exiles disturbed by his pro-Castro activism.

Multipolarism Solves Syria at the Source

By Tony Cartalucci

The Syrian conflict is profoundly misrepresented across the entirety of the Western press.

To call it a civil war is a gross mischaracterization. The entire conflict was engineered and fueled from beyond Syria’s borders. And while there are a significant number of Syrians collaborating with this criminal conspiracy, the principal agents driving the conflict are foreigners. They include special interests in the United States, across the Atlantic in Europe, and regional players including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Israel...

When they arrived they were confronted by Palestinians and a violent clash ensued. In consultation with Palestinian security forces, the military extracted the worshippers.

Regardless of what one thinks of his tactics or positions, Irwin Schiff gave his life for a cause he believed in. He fought in a non violent intellectual way and they killed him for it, refusing to even let him go to be with his family as he was dying of cancer. This simply reveals the brutal nature of the state.

KALIBRating the foe: strategic implications of the Russian cruise missiles’ launch

The firing of cruise missiles by the Russian Navy, from the Caspian Sea, was not necessary for its military operation in Syria. However, this convincing show of force, demonstrates Russia’s technical superiority over NATO in this domain. Therefore, the so-called anti-missile shield, currently deployed by the Atlantic Alliance around Russia, is now obsolete.

A massive blow using Kalibr-NK LACMs was struck from the southwestern Caspian Sea. .
The Dagestan, a missile-armed frigate with a displacement of about 2,000 tons, acted as the flagship of the Russian naval assault force accompanied by the small missile patrol ships the Veliky Ustyug, the Grad Sviyazhsk, and the Uglich (with a displacement of about 1,000 tons).

Dreaming of a white OCTOBER? Early snowstorms hit the Midwest and New England as coldest air mass of the season sweeps across the United States

The coldest air mass of the season chilled temperatures across the US and dumped some snow on parts of the Midwest and New England on Saturday - and that could just be the beginning.

The cold front dropped temperatures into the 30s and below in some areas, including in Marquette, Michigan, where thermometers measured 27 degrees and about 2.5 inches of snow fell overnight.

The last time the city had two inches or more in October was in 2001 and the output was its highest daily total this early in the season since October 17, 1976, the National Weather Service reported.

Bombshell from Hillary's email stash: Smoking gun emails reveal Blair's 'deal in blood' with George Bush over Iraq war

The disclosure is certain to lead for calls for Sir John Chilcot to reopen his inquiry into the Iraq War if, as is believed, he has not seen the Powell memo.

A second explosive memo from the same cache also reveals how Bush used ‘spies’ in the Labour Party to help him to manipulate British public opinion in favour of the war.

The documents, obtained by The Mail on Sunday, are part of a batch of secret emails held on the private server of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton which U.S. courts have forced her to reveal.

Former Tory Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said: ‘The memos prove in explicit terms what many of us have believed all along: Tony Blair effectively agreed to act as a frontman for American foreign policy in advance of any decision by the House of Commons or the British Cabinet.

Syrian army, backed by Iranian fighters, advance south of Aleppo: monitor

Syrian troops backed by Hezbollah and Iranian fighters made advances on Saturday in their offensive to retake territory around the northern city of Aleppo from insurgents and jihadist fighters, a monitoring group said.

The campaign around Aleppo, which the army launched on Friday, is one of several assaults it has waged against rebel fighters since Russian jets began carrying out air strikes on Sept. 30 in support of President Bashar al-Assad.

It has concentrated so far on clearing rebel areas south of Aleppo rather than the city itself, which is home to 2 million people and divided between government forces and rebels.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) —
A defiant Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)is brushing off weak fundraising and weaker poll numbers as would-be donors and home state Republicans push him to abandon an uphill presidential bid to focus on his Senate re-election.

While showing some frustration, the first-term Kentucky senator this week claimed his superior political organization would prove wrong those doubting his chances in the White House contest. At the same time, he released fundraising numbers that place him squarely in the bottom tier of the GOP’s 2016 class over the last three months, a painful symbol of stalled momentum for the libertarian favorite who was considered a major presidential contender earlier in the year.

Historical Certainty Proves Elusive at Jerusalem’s Holiest Place

Although the biblical text does not specify the exact site of Mount Moriah, the Israeli scholar Rivka Gonen, in her book “Contested Holiness: Jewish, Muslim and Christian Perspectives on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem,” says the reference has been widely interpreted to mean the high point on the hill above the City of David — the rock now under the Dome of the Rock.

Many historians have said independent scientific verification of such a reference is problematic.

“The sources for the first temple are solely biblical, and no substantial archaeological remains have been verified,” said Wendy Pullan, senior lecturer in the history and philosophy of architecture at the University of Cambridge, in the book “The Struggle for Jerusalem’s Holy Places.”
Mr. Adams said, “We just don’t have enough primary source data, textual or archaeological, to say where it was with any confidence.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Israel is willing to risk regional if not global war to tear down Al Aqsa Mosgue and the Dome of the Rock, and they don't actually KNOW whether or not this was the real site of the first temple?!?

Actually, archaeologists have known for forty years that the Temple Mount is NOT the location of the fabled First Temple, but the remains of a Roman Fort, the Antonia, built by Herod. The actual location of the First Temple, as near as anyone can determine scientifically, is actually on Mount Ophel, 600 feet to the south. So, what is the point in a holy war over a sacred site when you cannot actually find the sacred site?

There is your proof that religion is a contagious psychosis!

Misunderstandings About Jerusalem's Temple Mount

While it has not been widely published, it assuredly has been known for more than 40 years that the 45-acre, well-fortified place that has been mistakenly called the "Temple Mount" was really the Roman fortress—the Antonia—that Herod built. The Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque are contained within these walls. The area is called the Haram Al-Sharif in Arabic.

The discovery that this area had once been the great Roman fortress came as a shock to the scholarly community, which had believed for many years that this ancient fortress was the place where the temple had been. This news was preceded by another shock, when the English archaeologist Kathleen Kenyon discovered in 1962 that the entire City of David in the past had been only that little rock ridge on the western bank of the Kidron Valley. Less than 10 years later the historian Benjamin Mazar learned that the Haram had undoubtedly been the Roman fortress.

Sanders Rejects Donation from Big Pharma’s Martin Shkreli—Gives it to a Health Clinic Instead

Now that Sanders has both refused a meeting and donated his money elsewhere, Shrekli is angry: “I think it’s cheap to use one person’s action as a platform without kind of talking to that person,” Shkreli said in the interview. “He’ll take my money, but he won’t engage with me for five minutes to understand this issue better.”

He isn’t worried about the laws changing any time soon though: “Right now the rule of law in the United States is that drug companies can price their products wherever they see fit, not wherever he sees fit,” Shkreli said. “If the rule changes by congressional vote, then you know, I’ll adapt to the rules.”

Shkreli also tweeted about his donation during the Democratic National Debate on Tuesday, along with the claim that soaring drug prices are what pays for research and development on drugs for the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think Shrekli is actually working for Hillary, first of all by creating a stir by the 5000% increase in the price of his drug, which allowed Hillary to make a statement about controlling pharmaceutical profits, and now this trying to attach his very negative public image to Bernie Sanders.

MU students: Remove statue of ‘racist rapist’ Thomas Jefferson

Some students at the University of Missouri are so bothered by a statue of Thomas Jefferson they’ve issued a Change.org petition to have it removed. In two months, only 71 of the requested 100 signatures have signed on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Peter Sutherland, the United Nations special representative of the secretary-general for international migration, as actually admitted there is an agenda to erase all national borders! In order to do that, all sense of a national identity must be erased, including historical points of pride, which includes the symbols of the Confederacy, and early Presidents who stood for independence. As the lackluster response to the petition shows, this attempt to erase out history, like the open borders tactic, has fizzled, and provoked a backlash.

To correct the original claims, sex with a slave was accepted practice in Jefferson's time, and we cannot judge him by today's standards. Second, he never raped Sally Hemmings, in fact he took very good care of her, took her with him to Europe, and on his death freed Sally, their children, and provided for their futures.

NYT lies about Al-Aqsa Mosque

American archaeologist and author, Professor Dr. Ernest L. Martin (1932-2002) had conducted archaeology work in East jerusalem. In his controversial book ‘The Temples that Jerusalem Forgot’, published in 1999 – Dr. Martin claimed that Muslim sacred places, Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of Rock are not built on top of the Temple Mount ruins (here).

Several other historians in the past had made similar conclusion that the 45-acre landmass known as Haram al-Sharif to the Muslim world since 638 CE – is in fact a Roman fortress built by King Herold and the Jewish holy Wailing Wall (the Western Wall) had never been part of the second Temple of Solomon destroyed in 70 CE.

British archaeologist Kathleen Kenyon discovered in 1962 that the entire City of David in the past had been only that little rock ridge on the western bank of the Kidron Valley. In early 1970s, Professor Benjamin Mazar, former President of Hebrew University too, confirmed that Haram al-Sharif was indeed a Roman fortress.

Russian General Staff puzzled by ruins of commercial infrastructure near Syrian-Jordanian border

Traces of airstrikes against commercial structures have been found on the Syrian-Jordanian border where neither Russian nor Syria aircraft have ever operated, said Col. Gen. Andrei Kartapolov, head of the Main Operations Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces General Staff.

"On the Syrian-Jordanian border, not far from the city of Herbet-Gezala we found ruins of commercial structures destroyed as a result of bombing," the general said a briefing for military attaches and journalists on Oct. 16.

"Russian aircraft have never operated there; the Syrian aviation, as our data suggest, was not used there either," he said.

"ISIS terrorists have never been to this area; moreover, this area has been controlled by the Free Syrian Army since 2013," Kartapolov recalled.

New Russian Jamming System Near Latakia Blocks All NATO Electronics Inside Bubble 600 Km in Diameter; Radar, Satellites, Communications All Disrupted; System Shifts Military Balance in Favor of Russia

“The Richag-AV system, mounted on the Mi-8MTPR1 (a variant of the Mi-8MTB5-1 helicopter) is said to have no global equivalent. Its electronic countermeasures system is designed to jam radar, sonar and other detection systems in the aims of defending aircraft, helicopters, drones, ground and naval forces against air-to-air and surface-to-air defense systems within a radius of several hundred kilometers. It can be mounted on units from any branch of the armed forces, including helicopters and airplanes, as well as ground and ship-based forces. The Mi8-MTPR1-based Richag-AV platform, using multi-beam antenna arrays with DRFM technology, is designed to actively jam and thus ‘blind’ radar systems in order to defend against radio-electronic guided weapons systems.

Treasury again rules out the 'trillion-dollar coin' option to avert the debt ceiling

The US Treasury Department has once again ruled out the potential use of a platinum coin as a way to break the nation's debt ceiling in the event Congress fails to raise its limit.
