6 Reasons Why Russia Cares So Much About Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

As the potential for direct military confrontation between the United States/NATO and Russia in Syria escalates by the day, the vast majority of Americans have little clue why the Russians would have ever become involved in the crisis to begin with. Undoubtedly, most of them believe what they are told through the mainstream media – that Russia is yet again acting aggressively in its plans for total world domination and the establishment of the Fourth Reich.

Italy to join US-led bombings of Iraq

It has been reported that Italy was planning to join the US-led bombings of Iraq. According to Italian newspaper Corrierre della Sera, Italy will start bombing terrorists in Iraq in the next few hours. Italy will launch the operation only after all the details are coordinated with the US command.
It was the Iraqi government that asked Italy to intervene and e bomb the terrorists, the newspaper wrote. Italy had previously sent several Tornado fighter jets to Kuwait. It was originally reported that the aircraft would be used for reconnaissance activity only. The international coalition led by the United States has recently announced its intention to intensify its military actions in Syria.

All car companies cheat on emissions tests—it’s just that most do it legally

It’s not just Volkswagen. For years, emissions from cars built by almost every major manufacturer have been higher out on the road than when tested in labs.

In fact, the average gap between real-world emissions and official test results has been growing. A new report by the International Council on Clean Transportation, the research group that first flagged suspicious emissions patterns at Volkswagen, found that under normal conditions the average carbon-dioxide emissions for passenger cars are some 40% higher than the official amounts certified by European lab tests. In 2001, the gap was less than 10%.

Hillary Clinton kept in touch with key donors, emails show

The note to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from liberal financier George Soros demanded “urgent attention from the highest levels of the U.S. government.” Clinton swiftly alerted a top aide to what she described as a “very forceful message which is good — and needed.”

The email exchange, in which Soros warned of growing unrest in Albania, illustrates how Clinton interacted with major donors to her family's causes during her tenure at the State Department, staying in touch with her political network before her 2016 run for the Democratic presidential nomination. And the messages show how these donors, some of them with interests before the federal government, gained high-level access to press policy concerns inside the Clinton-led State Department.

Russian jets hit 12 ISIS targets in Syria, cause panic among extremists – Defense Ministry

Russian jets hit 12 Islamic State targets in the course of nearly 20 combat flights carried out in Syria on Tuesday, the Defense Ministry said. Command centers and training camps were destroyed in the attacks which threw the extremists into panic.

"Su-34, Su-24M and Su-25 have launched air strikes on 12 objects of logistic infrastructure, command posts, training camps and facilities of militants belonging to terrorist groups allied with Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL],” Igor Konashenkov, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Russian jets destroyed an Islamic State army munitions plant outside Damascus as well as two command centers in Deir ez-Zor, according to the ministry’s statement. In the Idlib Governorate, a training camp for IS militants was eliminated, while several IS strongholds came under attack where ammunition depots were blown up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though Russia's military, in barely a week, has really got ISIS on the ropes.

And now the government of Iraq has called for direct Russian military intervention against the terrorists in their country!!

“Lithium Love”: Was Oregon Gunman on Psychiatric Meds Linked to Violence?

The revelation that Umpqua Community College shooter Chris Mercer used the screen name “lithium love,” along with other references to prescription medication, strongly suggests that the gunman was taking psychiatric drugs that have been linked to violent outbursts.

As the Oregonian reports, “There are a number of indications that Harper-Mercer had mental health or behavioral issues. His screen name on some social media sites was “lithium love.” Lithium is used as a psychiatric medication.”

Lithium is used to enhance the effect of SSRI drugs, a number of which, “have also been linked to increase risk for violent, even homicidal behavior,” reports Time.

On one of his Facebook posts, Mercer also made reference to a number of different prescription drugs he was taking.

“I have a pill bottle with like five types of pills mixed in. I don’t know which ones are the sleep aids, so I just took four of each,” wrote Mercer.

Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown signs into law 'end of life' bill

California Gov. Edmund "Jerry" Brown said Monday he signed into law a bill that would allow terminally ill people to request drugs from a doctor to end their own life. In a signing letter, Brown said he consulted with Catholic bishops and doctors, and reflected upon his own death. "I do not know what I would do if I were dying in prolonged and excruciating pain," Brown wrote. "I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn't deny that right to others."

Hillary Clinton Readies Oppo-Research to Go to War Against Joe Biden

If Joe Biden jumps into the Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton will be ready to go on the offensive. According to a Clinton campaign source, a team of opposition researchers working on behalf of Clinton is currently digging through Biden’s long record in office to develop attack lines in case the vice-president runs.

The oppo-research project reveals how seriously Clintonworld is taking the prospect of a Biden candidacy. So far, Clinton hasn’t taken any direct shots at Biden herself. But behind the scenes, her loyalists are making moves to blunt Biden's campaign should he run. "Even implicitly his campaign’s argument would be ‘I have integrity and you don’t,'" a Clinton ally said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Ukraine’s parliament legalizes foreign mercenaries in country

An explanatory note for the document says the goal is to "increase the Armed Forces combat capability and reduce Ukraine’s human and financial losses resulting from combat actions in eastern Ukraine." Ukrainian lawmakers expressed confidence that after foreigners receive a legal possibility to serve in the country’s army, the country will get experienced and motivated units of up to 1,000 people. Ukraine will be able to reduce the need to mobilize Ukrainian citizens and to cut the expenses for social benefits to the participants of the combat actions, handicapped people and families of victims. Earlier in the day, Ukrainian MPs adopted in the first reading a draft law easing procedures to gain the country’s citizenship for foreigners serving in the Ukrainian army. Two simplified procedures for granting the Ukrainian citizenship have been proposed. The first procedure envisages that the foreigners will need to live three years in Ukraine instead of five years.

British business pressing Cameron to step up preparations for EU referendum — media

British Prime Minister said that referendum on UK’s membership in the European Union will be held until the end of 2017. However, some British media say that voting may be held already in 2016. Cameron supports remaining part of EU. Business is pressing UK Prime Minister David Cameron "to accelerate plans for an EU referendum", The Financial Times reported on Tuesday. "Simon Walker, director-general of the Institute of Directors, called for a plebiscite in 2016 and said there was ‘at least a 50-50 possibility’ that voters would vote to leave the bloc, an assessment shared by some cabinet ministers," FT said. This leaves chances for Great Britain to remain part of the European Union. However, taking into consideration growing eurosceptic sentiment, delay in the referendum may lead to the victory of supporters of UK’s independent course. "The prime minister’s negotiating team are still aiming to secure EU reforms and call an early referendum.

British veterans to arrive in Sevastopol despite UK Foreign Office’s warning

Three British veterans of World War II Arctic convoys are due to arrive in the key Crimean port city of Sevastopol on Tuesday despite the earlier warning of the UK Foreign Office. During the trip, which is part of their week-long visit to the Black Sea Peninsula, the veterans will go to the memorial places of the Crimean War (1853-1856) and the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) and meet with the city governor Sergey Menaylo. The travellers will also visit the capital Simferopol, Livadia Palace - location of the 1945 Yalta conference - and meet Russian veterans and sailors. Sevastopol's Deputy Governor Alexander Reshetnikov thanked the British nationals during a video link-up for being not afraid of coming to Crimea despite the warning of their government. "I will not comment on the reaction of the UK on your visit to Crimea. Let it be on their conscience. I will just say that Russia is proud by heroes!

Lawmaker says Russia’s ground operation in Syria is out of the question

Russia’s competent authorities counter the penetration to the Middle East, in particular to Syria, of Russian nationals who intend to take part in the fighting on either side, Chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee, former commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet Vladimir Komoedov told reporters on Tuesday. "As for possible attempts by Russian citizens, for the sake of money or proceeding from their ideological views, to penetrate into the territory of Syria, Iraq, Libya and other countries in the region engulfed in turmoil and military conflicts through the fault of the "far-sighted" policy of the United States and to take part in the hostilities on this or that side, the Russian competent authorities, according to the information I have, do their utmost to prevent them. And this is the right thing to do," he said. Komoedov noted that "Russia’s ground operation in Syria was out of the question." "This has been stated clearly," he added.

MP: Election postponement demonstrates Donbas commitment to Minsk accords

Postponement of elections in Ukraine’s Donbas until 2016 is fully in line with the Paris agreements of the Normandy Four leaders and demonstrates a will of the self-proclaimed people’s republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (DPR and LPR) to implement the Minsk agreements, a top Russian parliamentarian from the State Duma lower house told reporters on Tuesday. Earlier on Tuesday, DPR and LPR envoys to the Contact Group on Ukraine, Denis Pushilin and Vladislav Deinego, said in a statement that their republics agreed to postpone local elections from October 18 and November 1 until next year, but they demanded Kiev’s full compliance with the Minsk agreements. They said Kiev should comply with the political points of the Minsk agreements on a special status for Donbas and an amnesty for "participants in events on the territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions".

A number of foreign media outlets reported previously with reference to an anonymous military source in Syria that Russian planes allegedly delivered airstrikes on Palmira that is occupied by militants of the outlawed in Russia Islamic State organization.

US should attempt to disarm Russians in Syria: Brzezinski

US foreign policy expert Zbigniew Brzezinski says the United States should retaliate if Russia does not stop bombing its assets in Syria.

Brzezinski, the national security adviser for former President Jimmy Carter, advised President Barack Obama to attempt to disarm the Russians if they keep attacking the CIA-trained militants in Syria.

"The Russian naval and air presences in Syria are vulnerable, isolated geographically from their homeland," Brzezinski wrote in an article published by the Financial Times on Sunday. "They could be 'disarmed' if they persist in provoking the US."

"But, better still, Russia might be persuaded to act with the US in seeking a wider accommodation to a regional problem that transcends the interests of a single state," he added.

A new US intelligence assessment has found Russia has targeted militant groups backed by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, that does it: Zbigniew Brzezinski has just lost his reality licence, and absolutely should NOT be advising the US government on how to carry our its foreign policy.

I would like to politely remind Dr. Brzezinski that Russia was invited by the Syrian government to rid it of the plague of ISIS and other extremists, threatening the Al-Assad government; the US government has NOT been invited to do this, and should not do anything provocative at this point.

Unfortunately, just because an action is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid move the US government could make, is absolutely no guarantee that it will not do so.

Military action against Russia would be a disaster for the US government, and for several reasons. It does not have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to ensure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

Additionally, there is a tacit understanding between Russia's weapons and aircraft makers that when these items are deployed in the field, they work precisely as advertised, or even better than advertised, unlike here in the US.

"Emergencies minister Vladimir Puchkov sent on Tuesday official messages to Interior Minister of France Bernard Cazaneuve and US Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency Craig Fugate, expressing condolence in connection with the loss of lives in floods and offering assistance in overcoming their aftermath," a ministry representative said. "We are ready to offer any necessary assistance and support," the minister said in his letter.
According to updated reports, 19 people were killed after violent storms and severe flooding hit the French Riviera on Sunday. As much as two monthly norms of rain inundated the coastal zone of about 40 kilometers between the cities of Mandelieu-la-Napoule and Nice, where local mountain rivers broke their banks.

ISIS so weakened by Russian airstrikes and desertion it could be destroyed in HOURS

Western and more recently Russian airstrikes, chaotic leadership and mass defections have weakened the jihadi group to such an extent that it would be unable to repel even a small invasion force.

A terror analyst told Express.co.uk that the fanatics have vastly exaggerated their military strength and called on Western leaders to launch a co-ordinated fightback which would obliterate the hate group.

Dr Afzal Ashraf said ISIS has become its own worst enemy with its campaign of terror against the West, which has prompted an international backlash.

While the US was been surprised and angered by the stunningly fast turn of events in Syria where in the span of less than a month Russia unleashed a massive, Syria-based airborne campaign against what it says are ISIS terrorists, even as the US accuses Putin of targeting "moderate rebels", it has had little recourse in accusing Putin of violating Syrian sovereignty: after all Russia is the only nation that Syria has officially invited to eradicate the "terrorist threat" that is ISIS.

Fed Plan is Print Money Until System Blows

Financial writer and analyst Bix Weir is not surprised by the Federal Reserve’s policies because it is all part of the long term plan. Weir explains, “The goal, since we went off the gold standard in 1971, has been to run the financial system as long and as hard as possible, sucking up all the benefits of fiat money, and there are very few attempts to slow this mess down. The idea is to put as much money as you can . . . until you have printed so much money the system implodes. This was a Nobel Prize winning paper in the 1960’s called “On the Road to the Golden Age.” It basically says if you have this freedom and flexibility with the monetary system, run it as hard as you can until people stop accepting the unbacked fiat money, then crash the system and go back to something safe and sound after it all blows up. . . .

Doctors Without Borders airstrike: US alters story for fourth time in four days

US special operations forces – not their Afghan allies – called in the deadly airstrike on the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, the US commander has conceded.

Shortly before General John Campbell, the commander of the US and Nato war in Afghanistan, testified to a Senate panel, the president of Doctors Without Borders – also known as Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – said the US and Afghanistan had made an “admission of a war crime”.

...

Campbell did not explain whether the procedures to launch the airstrike took into account the GPS coordinates of the MSF field hospital, which its president, Joanne Liu, said were “regularly shared” with US, coalition and Afghan military officers and civilian officials, “as recently as Tuesday 29 September”.

Trump and Sanders blowing pundits' minds

Events in both the Republican and Democratic presidential races have outstripped the ability of political strategists and journalists to understand them. Faced with the continued dominance of Donald Trump and the undeniable strength of Bernie Sanders, many in the political commentariat have tried to stuff a series of baffling events into familiar interpretive constructs. It's not working.

It's probably fair to say that every — not most, every — Republican strategist in Washington believes Trump will fade, or perhaps blow up, or in any event will not be the GOP nominee. Everything in their experience tells them he won't last. Which has led to the extraordinary scenario of a frontrunner being asked repeatedly under what circumstances would he drop out of the race.

Top U.S. general in Afghanistan: Hospital was ‘mistakenly struck’

Gen. John F. Campbell, the commander of U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan, told lawmakers on Tuesday that the American air attack that killed at least 22 people at a hospital in northern Afghanistan were not intended to hit medical staff or patients.

“A hospital was mistakenly struck,” Campbell said in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee. “We would never intentionally target a protected medical facility.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...mistakenly struck.", MY ASTROLABE!!

The US and NATO have been in bloody Afghanistan for 15 years, and you didn't have the GPS coordinates for one of the few functioning hospitals in the country?!? Please, sir, give the American public and the world a brake. Let me give you some relatively current examples of this kind of behaviour on the part of the US military.

As of February of this year, the US military has extrajudicially assassinated 2,500 people in multiple countries

https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/2015/02/02/almost-2500-killed-cove...

-The US government continues to enable the Saudis in their bombardments of schools and hospitals in Yemen.

The US government has enabled Ukraine to bomb targets like hospitals and schools in Donbass

http://www.workers.org/articles/2015/01/22/ukraine-widens-war-donbass-re...

So, PLEASE, General Campbell, do NOT attempt to paint this as a "mistake"; the US military wanted Doctors without Borders OUT of Afghanistan, and this multiple assassination of patients and staff seemed the most reasonable way of doing it, then taking cover in plausible deniability by blaming the Taliban's presence for the bombing.

This is more than simple "collateral damage", and won't wash, sir; and unfortunately, the bombing of alleged "protected areas" and the assassination of the innocent have become as American as apple pie for the US military, and the countries it enables with its military might, such as Saudi Arabia; Bahrain; and Ukraine.

On the day the hospital was bombed, the excuse was that the Taliban was shooting from it; so it didn't sound like a "mistake" back then.

ICELANDIC VOLCANO SPEWED MORE TOXIC GAS THAN ALL OF EUROPE

Toxic gases and lava billowed from the top of the Bardarbunga volcano for nearly six months last year in the biggest Icelandic eruption for two centuries. In this time, the volcano spewed enough lava to cover an area the size of Manhattan -- and three times as much toxic gas than all man-made sources in Europe, according to new research.

The eruption started in August, 2014, and continued until February, 2015. At points, the volcano expelled as much as 120 kilotons of gases a day, eight times the rate of all European industry.

What's more surprising -- or concerning -- is that an even bigger eruption could be on the way.

The EPA Closed the Lab That Might Have Caught VW Years Ago

ore than 20 years ago, an engineer at the Environmental Protection Agency invented a device that allows technicians to measure the emissions of a car as it is traveling in the real world.

Had the device, then known as ROVER, been used by the EPA to screen cars, it would have detected Volkswagen’s cheating long ago, former engineers for the EPA said.

But the Alexandria, Va., lab where the testing device was developed was closed by the EPA about 2001, and the contractors who worked there were laid off. The pilot program that used the new devices to test cars for emissions compliance on the road did not continue, officials said.

“When this all came out in the news about VW, my first thought was, ‘Wow, we could have been all over this,’?” said John Lux, testing manager at the lab.

They really want to make sure we are not thinking those double-plus ungood thoughts about the government, steal our business secrets, and load up their whacking-off libraries with naked pictures of our spouses and children! And the claim that spying on law-abiding Americans will let the government find terrorists is nonsense, firstly because we now know that the big terrorist groups such as ISIS and al Qaeda actually work for the US Government, and second, as we demonstrated in this article, creating new systems of encryption which can defeat the NSA is actually rather easy.

Snowden: US, UK Spies 'Want to Own Your Phone'

merican and British spy agencies have been aggressively developing tools to hack smartphones, government leaker Edward Snowden told BBC’s “Panorama” in an interview aired Monday night.

But intelligence officials aren’t necessarily interested in monitoring private communications on the phone. They want to use the device to take photos or eavesdrop.

"They want to own your phone instead of you,” Snowden said.

And smartphone owners have “very little” they can do to stop these officials from cracking their device.

The Thousand Year Rainfall Fallacy

Every time we get a big rain in the US, climate morons start claiming it was a 1,000 year event

So what are they doing wrong?

Your odds of winning the lottery are very small, but the odds of someone winning the lottery are quite high. What these geniuses are doing is conflating the odds of one individual station getting a 20 inch rain, with the odds of any station getting a 20 inch rain.

Big rains are not rare in the US. Alvin, Texas got 43 inches of rain in one day in 1979.

We heard exactly the same 1,000 year nonsense after the 20 inch rains of 2013 in Colorado, but Colorado got 24 inches of rain in six hours in 1935.

Carly Fiorina Just Doesn't "Get It" on Torture

arly Fiorina has to be the most completely clueless Republican running for president, at least when it comes to intelligence policy. Fiorina disingenuously told Yahoo News last week that waterboarding and other CIA torture techniques “kept our country safe” in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.

She went on to justify these violations of U.S. and international law by saying, “I believe that all of the evidence is very clear – that waterboarding was used in a very small handful of cases and was supervised by medical personnel … and I also believe that waterboarding was used when there was no other way to get information that was necessary.”

There are so many things wrong with this asinine statement that I don’t know where to begin.

“When you get shot, you need to close your fingers and keep ‘em in,” adds Tammy Kozinski, the drama teacher. “When the bad guy and the police come through, they’ll step all over you, and who will be saying they’re sorry?”

What The World’s Biggest Money Managers Are Thinking Right Now: “Holy Crap!” by Mac Slavo

While stability is a major talking point of the Federal Reserve and US government officials, those who are in the know understand that the economy is teetering on complete and utter disaster. Job losses continue to mount, stocks are swinging wildly and foreign creditors have begun divesting themselves of U.S. dollar-denominated assets.

What is China going to do? That’s really the question.

Remember, one-third of all U.S. Treasury notes are owned by China. They’ve sold 12% of their holdings.

The Chinese are not stupid. How come no one is talking about this?

… You’re looking for what the guys managing money are thinking. And that’s what I’m thinking. I’m thinking, “Holy crap!”

If somebody blew out 15% of a position and they own one-third of the stock, you want to pay attention, right?

World's Largest Sovereign Wealth Fund Is Forced To Begin Liquidating Assets

One of the biggest stories of this summer, as previewed originally here in November of 2014, has been the dramatic shift in the direction of capital flow from toward emerging markets (and China), to away from emerging markets (and China). The reason for this has been the double whammy of the soaring dollar, and the collapse in oil prices which as we said one year ago, would lead to the first negative global petrodollar export balance in 18 years...

... a topic which the IIF finally picked up and expanded on last week when it likewise calculated that capital outflows from emerging markets are on track to exceed inflows this year for the first time since 1988.

FDA is anti-science? FDA memo shows that female libido pill was approved for political reasons, despite medical and scientific objections

A libido-boosting pill by the name of Addyi, which has been dubbed the "female Viagra," is set to hit the U.S. market in October 2015. Don't be so quick to think this is a good thing; although the pill, which is made by Sprout Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and chemically known as flibanserin, has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), several health questions surrounding the drug's benefits and risks are still looming.

That's right. It has been given the thumbs-up by the FDA despite the fact that the powers that be aren't entirely sure about the effect it has on women other than the fact that it's been shown to boost sexual desire - and even then, it has only been shown to provide "meaningful" help for about ten percent more patients than those taking a placebo.

Obama’s Syria Strategy: ‘Scrambling’ and ‘Desperate’ as Putin Takes Charge

I mentioned realities the Obama administration can’t or won’t accept. For the moment I count five:

• The united front Putin urged on Obama is up and running as we speak. A week ago the Iraqi military command announced that Baghdad would begin sharing intelligence in the fight against ISIS with Tehran, Moscow, and Damascus. Once again, the White House was left “scrambling,” as a report in The New York Times put it.

• Washington complains that Russian bombers aren’t hitting ISIS. But the stated mission is to keep Assad from falling, and the targets appear to be those most directly threatening Damascus. Is there a surprise here? Equally, should Moscow discriminate against one group of Islamists from another, given that “moderates” in this war long ago proved a figment of the CIA’s ever-fertile imagination?

2. Obama cannot use an executive order to bypass the Constitution. Under the US Supreme Court ruling Marbury vs Madison, any such order or law that as repugnant to the Constitution is automatically null and void.

3. Under the US Supreme Court ruling United States vs Miller, the Second Amendment reserves to the people arms equivalent to those carried by the uniformed forces.

4. Under the US Supreme Court ruling John Bad Elk vs United States, citizens have a right to resist any official acting outside the law and the Constitution up to and including the use of lethal force.

Obama: It takes me by surprise how people believe Putin outplaying me

“The actions of Russia’s leadership do not make the country any stronger. Rather, the country earns more attention and negative reputation”

Baku – APA. The actions of Russian national leader Vladimir Putin only lead to a fall in Russia's position as an international player. All that he did creates for Russia a reputation that is not so good.

The statement was made by US President Barack Obama when he was told of opinions that Russian President Vladimir Putin is outplaying him, APA reported citing news.liga.net.

“What takes me by surprise is that how people – not only my critics – believe it,” he said.

He recalled that when he became president in 2008, the US was undergoing the consequences of the worst global financial crisis and was simultaneously involved in two wars – almost single-handedly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having an industrial, palm to forehead moment at velocity, upon reading this.

Is President Obama so completely out of touch with the reality of what Putin has done that he cannot comprehend it, logically, or is he simply in denial?!?

And of course, let us not forget the sanctions placed upon Russia after the putsch in Ukraine last year, which led to Crimea to vote to rejoin the Russian Federation.

But not only did those sanctions pull Russia and China closer together; the Russian economy is also poised for growth very quickly. As reported on 30 September, 2015 at rt.com:

The World Bank anticipates a 3.8 percent contraction of the Russian economy in 2015, reflecting lower global oil prices and the impact of Western sanctions on the country. However it is more optimistic for the Russian economy in the coming years. Next year, contraction will slow down to 0.6 percent, while in 2017 the Russian economy will recover to a 1.5 percent growth rate, according to World Bank’s latest Russia Economic Report, issued Wednesday. The bank also expects the Russian ruble to strengthen to 58.2 rubles (about 13 percent) to the US dollar in 2017, with capital outflow reduced to $67 billion. The report praised the Russian authorities for successfully stabilizing the economy and called for sustained structural reforms. There is an opportunity for Russia to benefit from a structural transformation of its economy in the longer term, according to the report. “The policy response by the authorities successfully stabilized the economy. Monetary policy prevented costly delays in relative price adjustments, highlighting the importance of the central bank’s commitment to inflation targeting in the context of a flexible exchange rate regime,” the World Bank lead economist for the Russian Federation and the main author of the report Birgit Hansl said.

Except for the 1%, the American economy, unfortunately, is staggering and weaving like a boxer who has taken one too many punches to the face. It appears that a hard landing is coming; it is only a question of when.

We Aren't Nearly As Worried About The Middle East As We should Be

What's the opposite of a gift that keeps on giving? A mistake that keeps metastasizing.

Which pretty much sums up the US role in the Middle East. Beginning with the CIA's 1953 overthrow of Iran's democratically elected president and continuing through the multiple regime changes and invasions of recent years, various American governments have behaved like they both understood that region and had the power to mold it into a docile client that pumped oil, suppressed dissent and otherwise caused no trouble.

Instead, each intervention turned up the heat on an already-boiling pot of corruption, sectarian rivalry and geopolitical anger that has finally erupted into regional civil war. The whole world, at long last, understands that the situation is beyond both US understanding and control.

And that's the good news.

The US economy flies into the “coffin corner”, but we don’t mind!

Summary: Every year Wall Street economists see a spike in a few indicators and announce an imminent boom. This slowly fades away, leaving another year of slow growth — preventing full recovery from the crash. Readers of the FM website have seen this accurately reported since the crash, avoiding the boom-bust cycle of of crushed euphoria. Here’s a new update, as we start another slowing cycle. Eventually, inevitably, we will hit a bump that pushes slow growth to outright decline. Then, when we no longer can prepare, economic news will become exciting.

We’re in the coffin corner: can’t accelerate, can’t continue at this speed, and can’t afford to decelerate. All that maintains public confidence is the happy talk of the Fed governors and Wall Street’s gurus, at the long-term cost of destroying their credibility when it proves false. The only hint the Fed has given us is the slow downward ratchet in their forecast of US long-term growth.

C.O. police test tactics in 'shooter' drill

BEND, Ore. -

It took months of planning and more than 300 people to prepare Friday's "active shooter" drill on COCC's Bend campus, the largest held in the region.
There were numerous agencies involved and several layers to the scenario. And there were planners and responders who didn't know the details of the drill.

It started in Modoc Hall and extended to Jefferson Hall, where several people were reported "wounded." Police responders were involved after a volunteer made an actual call to 911 dispatch at 9:15 a.m.

"The shooter was actually sprinting to places," said participant Shawn Horton.
