Calls For Urgent Investigation Into Death Of Antonin Scalia

The news which drew seemingly quick conclusions that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia had died of “natural causes” this weekend, has prompted calls for an autopsy and toxicological reports.

The president of the Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee William Gheen, noted the media’s “rush” to proclaim Scalia’s death in a rented room in a resort in Texas as either “natural causes” or heart attack just hours after the discovery of his body.

Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara, who pronounced Scalia dead, said no autopsy was necessary.

It has also been reported that President Barack Obama was informed about Scalia’s death hours before it was announced publicly.

Turkey, Saudi Arabia begin joint military drills

Turkey and Saudi Arabia have begun joint air exercises, claiming it is within the framework of cooperation and military training between the two countries.

The Turkish military said in a statement that the five-day drills started on Monday, adding that six Saudi F-15 fighter jets are involved in the military exercises.

The drills were planned in advance and are taking place in Turkey’s central region of Konya, the statement said.

Saudi Arabia and Turkey are widely believed to be among major sponsors of terrorist groups operating against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The joint drills started only a day after Brigadier General Ahmed al-Asiri, a Saudi military spokesman, said Riyadh has dispatched warplanes to the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey, claiming that the move was in line with the so-called fight against Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Syria.

Trump is Right About Iraq, and That Should Stick to Clinton

***
People say that Trump is loud. But I don’t think he’s been loud enough.

***
But, for the Democrats, the import now is this: What’s it going to look like if Trump is the Republican nominee? If Clinton is the Democratic nominee, Trump — with very good reason — will tie the stench of perpetual wars and the lies that accompany them around her neck. She will make the 2004 John “I-was-for-the-war-before-I-was-against-it” Kerry look like a stirring exemplar of gracefully articulated principles.

If any Democrat cares a bit about electability, Clinton — the candidate not only of Wall Street, but of endless war and of the war machine — should have been dumped yesterday.

Stocks Dive as Confidence in Fed Fades

“Investors are losing confidence in central bank policies. (They) have done all they can do, and these policies may not improve economic growth or may not support financial markets.”

— Anthony Valeri, investment strategist at LPL Financial

Zero rates and QE have stopped working and that has investors worried. Very worried.

If you want to know why stocks have been taking it on the chin lately, look no further than the quote above. Mr. Valeri nails it. The Central Banks have lost their touch which is why investors are cashing in and heading for the exits. This has nothing to do with the slowdown in China, bank troubles in Europe, capital flight in the emerging markets, droopy oil prices, or the deceleration in the global economy. Forget about that stuff. The real problem is that investors have lost confidence in the Fed. And for good reason.Keep in mind, that for the last 5 years or so, bad news has been good news and good news has been bad news. What does that mean?

Justice Scalia’s Sordid Simulacrum

On November 6, 2013, at the “Synagogue and State” conference at Yeshiva University’s Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for “Torah” (Torah sheBeal peh, i.e. the oral “Torah” ? the Talmud), Rabbi Dr. Meir Soloveichik, director of the Straus Center, introduced Scalia as follows, “It is an immense honor to welcome a justice of the United States Supreme Court who is also recognized as one of the most brilliant jurists of our age to the Straus Center. I am especially delighted that we will be able to feature Justice Scalia in conversation with Yeshiva alumnus Nathan Lewin, whose extraordinary legal career is a source of great pride to our University.” Scalia’s close friend and Talmudic crony, Nathan Lewin, served as the attorney for AgriProcessors, allegedly one of the worst and most inhumane kosher slaughterhouses in the nation. Lewin is on record advocating that the family of Palestinian suicide bombers? their mothers and fathers, for example? should be executed by the Israelis.

Lawmakers Rush Bill To Shield Name Of Officer Who Shot LaVoy Finicum

Oregon legislators are rushing through a bill aimed at protecting the identity of the Oregon State Police officer who shot and killed Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation leader Robert LaVoy Finicum after hearing that the officer faces potential death threats.

House Bill 2087, which would allow the police to ask a judge to bar release of the shooter’s name for 90 days at a time, is now headed to the House floor after State Police Superintendent Richard Evans Jr. described how police and other government officials in Burns faced a series of threats and intimidating behavior before and during the 41-day occupation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

The Sudden Death of Justice Scalia and What It Means for America

The announcement of the sudden death of Justice Scalia of the US Supreme Court monopolized the media this weekend. This is only the 2nd time in the past 60 years that an active justice has died. With only 8 members on the Court now, the Constitutional dialogue may grind to a halt for quite some time.

No matter where you stand on the political scale (even if you stand off it entirely), there are some pretty major ramifications when an acting Supreme Court Justice passes away. Not all of these things are guaranteed to happen, but all are within the realm of possibility and important to note to those who were dancing on the grave of Scalia before his body was even cold.

Why the Syria ceasefire is a long shot

Washington and its allies are not interested in peace. They want regime change – by hook or by crook.

An end to the Syrian conflict is desperately needed. But the latest plan for a cessation of violence is unlikely to take hold, as the deal struck by international powers is based on fundamentally opposing premises.

In short, Washington and its allies want regime change, while Russia and Iran insist that President Bashar Al-Assad and his government are the legitimate ruling authorities in Syria. All sides are mandated by UN resolutions to respect the sovereign will of the Syrian people – to determine the political future of their country.

A Syrian Breakthrough – Israel Shamir

Now the deed is done, the corridor is blocked.

If and when Aleppo and the whole Aleppo district will be taken by the Syrian army, we would be able to congratulate Putin and Assad – and Syrian people – with a great victory.

The Russians raise alarms that a Turkish invasion into Syria is imminent. Russian media is foaming at the mouth about the perfidious Turks; a veritable Two Minutes Hate ritual (vide Orwell) on the state-managed TV channels being repeated a few times a day. The idea is to scare Turks stiff so they will not move while the operation in the North lasts. On the other side, the Russian opposition draws frightful scenarios of Janissaries slaughtering the Russian boys on the Syrian terrain. The Turkish media also tries to instil fear in the Russkies by saying what they can do.

Presidential Debates and Iran

The presidential candidates’ irresponsible remarks about Iran - as though it is a politically convenient football to be kicked around...

After watching both the Republican and Democratic debates on TV, I intend to exclude two main categories from my principle concerns in the upcoming presidential elections that will determine who will replace President Obama next year: one is the entire roster of the Republican Party, and the other, anything other than the foreign policy issues; the main area of my personal interest.

I am disregarding the entire Republican roster because I don’t think any Republican has a chance to beat Ms. Clinton in the general elections, at least this time around.

FLASHBACK 2010 - Supreme Court Justice Barack Obama?

Think about it. Though Obama has struggled to find his footing in the White House, his education, temperament and experience make him ideally suited to lead the liberal wing of the court, especially at a time when a narrow conservative majority seems increasingly intent on challenging progressive economic reforms for the first time since the New Deal. Obama is clearly eager to take on the four truly conservative justices -- Samuel Alito, John Roberts, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas -- as his State of the Union smackdown suggests. But as president, he's constrained by that pesky separation of powers. So what better way to engage the fight than to join the bench?

Cibolo Creek Ranch owner recalls Scalia’s last hours in Texas

"He was seated near me and I had a chance to observe him. He was very entertaining. But about 9 p.m. he said, 'it's been a long day and a long week, I want to get some sleep," recalled Houston businessman John Poindexter, who owns the 30,000-acre luxury ranch.

When Poindexter tried to awaken Scalia about 8:30 the next morning, the judge's door was locked and he did not answer. Three hours later, Poindexter returned after an outing, with a friend of Scalia who had come from Washington with him.

RELATED: Inside the West Texas ranch where Antonin Scalia was found dead
"We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bed clothes were unwrinkled," said Poindexter.

"He was lying very restfully. It looked like he had not quite awakened from a nap," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

It bothers me that this hit is being made this obvious. I understand that people who do this sort of thing for the government are not very bright and they make mistakes (or this would be a very tiny website) but I am getting a very strong feeling someone is sending a deliberate message here that Scalia was the victim of an assassination, despite corporate media denials.

So, Que Bono?

Hillary benefits as the media has stopped reporting on the final release of her emails from the State Department.

Another possibility is that the rest of the surviving Supreme Court Justices are being told what might happen to them if they rule to support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, especially that Second Amendment.

Obama can appoint someone to fill the "sudden vacancy" on the Supreme Court as a recess appointment, without the confirmation of the Senate, but that appointment would expire at the end of the year. But this does give Obama a Supreme Court more amenable to his agenda for the remainder of his term in office!

Yet another possibility is that someone has been promised a seat on the Supreme Court as payment for some action, and the murder of Scalia had to be obvious to prove that it wasn't just coincidence that he passed away at this particular time.

I am thinking about that secret meeting that Hillary and Obama had back in 2008, the result of which appeared to be Hillary's backing down in the presidential race, to be rewarded with the Secretary of State position, off of which the Clintons made hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes to the Clinton "charitable" foundation.

So, is history repeating?

Let us, for the moment, stipulate that Hillary's corruptions at the Department of State do include the selling of US Top Secrets using her weak privater server to deliver and the Clinton Foundation to accept and launder the payments. Obama has to know that Hillary's continued campaign for President risks uncovering that spy scandal, which could be the final straw in the collapse of the Federal Government. Obama is also aware that George H. W. Bush's losing his re-election to Bill Clinton shifted the public focus away from the growing Iran-Contra scandal and the general public being made aware of government-sanctioned drug smuggling.

Hillary's popular vote loss to Bernie Sanders and Trump's ascendancy make Hillary's election as President dubious at best, and opened the door for Obama to make her on offer; to trade a slim possibility at being President for a guaranteed seat on the United States Supreme Court!

Making Scalia's assassination as obvious as it is is sending a message that Obama intends to keep his end of that bargain!

Now, this is just a theory, but it does fit the facts we have at hand.

Hillary gets a place in history, Obama gets a Supreme Court more in line with his agenda, and the email server/State Department corruption/spy scandal becomes a mere footnote! The established parties and Wall Street get a Supreme Court which will hamstring any efforts by President Trump to make significant changes to the status quo!

Or, it could be the reverse. Only a month ago, Hillary was saying what a great Supreme Court Judge Obama would make! Is Hillary offering to appoint Obama in exchange for "calling off the dogs" in the email/spy investigation? The idea of Obama on the Supreme Court has been floated going back to 2010!

What we need to look for is Hillary making "mis-steps" in the next few primaries, allowing Sanders to move into the lead. That will be her message that she accepts the deal.

Stay tuned!

How Justice Scalia Defended Your Digital Privacy—and Also Held It Back

A new Supreme Court justice could tip the scales away from the controversial third party doctrine... Justice Scalia was not antagonistic to the 4th Amendment, and in many cases he supported 4th Amendment protections. Most notably, in Kyllo v. United States, 533 U.S. 27 (2001), Justice Scalia wrote for the majority in a 5-4 decision holding that the 4th Amendment required a warrant to use thermal sensors to detect heat patterns emanating from inside a home. Justice Scalia also wrote the majority opinion in United States v. Jones, 132 S. Ct. 945 (2012), holding that the police needed a warrant to affix a GPS surveillance device to a car.

FBI confiscated witness video showing agents open fire on occupants of vehicle prior to LaVoy’s death: Claim

It looks as the story has now taken a twist, after Shawna Cox, a witness to LaVoy Finicum’s death, came forth, exposing the fact that she filmed the entire event on video, which was soon after confiscated by the FBI.

Moreover, in a bombshell statement, Cox also said she feels the reason they were ambushed by authorities was because they had “many documents” in their possession which show the illegalities of area land grabs, such as the Hammond case, conducted by federal agencies.

According to Cox, Ryan Panye, LaVoy Finicum, and at least one other occupant took fire, “multiple shots,” as they approached the roadblock, however, luckily, most, if not all, of the bullets from the initial barrage were deflected, ether by the metal of the truck or the sharp angle of the windows to the direct line of fire.

We were “shot at,” Cox said. They fired at “the passenger side–Ryan Payne.”

More Trouble For Hillary Clinton, Classified E-Mail Total Reaches 1,666

The State Department on Saturday released another 551 e-mails totaling 1,012 pages from Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server, including 84 that have been determined to contain classified information — bringing the total number of classified e-mails found on Clinton’s server to 1,666.

A majority of the 84 classified e-mails in this new release contain information deemed “Confidential”; three, however, were determined to contain information classified at a higher “Secret” level. This latest revelation comes on the heels of a disclosure last month that the State Department deemed 22 of Clinton’s e-mails “Top Secret” because they contained information that would do “exceptionally grave” damage to national security if disclosed.

Is the Supreme Court Irrelevant?

With the passing of Justice Scalia, the media has embarked on a frenzy of speculation about the political battles that are part and parcel of the President nominating a replacement Supreme Court justice.
While the political chum makes for good copy, the bigger question is rarely (if ever) asked: is the Supreme Court even relevant to the truly significant issues facing the nation?
The conventional view is that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is always relevant, for the obvious reason that it provides the ultimate interpretation of the law of the land.
But this simplistic view overlooks long periods in the nation's history when the Supreme Court was largely irrelevant to the pressing issues of the era. In some periods, the Court rubberstamped a Status Quo in desperate need of profound political reform.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this the start of a campaign to remove one of the three branches of government? Certainly the Executive Branch would prefer the USSC to get out of its way!

NYPD WANTS TO MAKE "RESISTING ARREST" A FELONY

It's no secret that "resisting arrest" is the go-to excuse for violence committed against suspects by corrupt cops -- it's practically a running gag.

But if NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton gets his way, resisting arrest will offer near-perfect impunity to his force's most violent and sleazy officers, who will be able to threaten anyone who complains about gratuitous violence during arrests with long prison sentences and felony records.

The Commission has suggested that he will be able to curb abuses of the new powers by having the police investigate fellow officers who lay higher-than-average resisting arrest charges in the course of their duties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should this happen, it will be a "carte blanche" for any police officer to violate the rights of any arrestee in New York, to the point of maiming or death.

I have had a few speeding tickets, and a few parking tickets (all of which, I have owned), but have never had the kind of encounter with police that many minorities face every day.

There is an insidious illness in police culture, in which many police believe that they can maim, and kill with impunity in this country, and this has to be stopped.

Great News: California Offers Unpaid Traffic Ticket Amnesty

It's not too often (if ever) that I report positive news about a government program, but I finally found one I like and endorse. Last summer, Governor Brown signed into law a one-time amnesty program for unpaid traffic and non-traffic infraction tickets. The program began October 1, 2015 and ends on March 31, 2017. Some counties are even offering amnesty for misdemeanors. I report on traffic ticket stuff quite often and I had not even known about this until today, so that means many other people do not know about this amnesty program.

FRANCE DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY LAWS TO BECOME PART OF CONSTITUTION

A state of emergency was declared in France shortly after the Paris terror attacks left 130 people dead and more than 300 injured. Following the declaration of emergency, minsters met shortly before Christmas 2015 to raise the three-month state of emergency limit to six months, which was scheduled to end February 26, 2016.

What has followed since is of extreme precedent. This week, an indefinite timeframe for the state of emergency, was raised. Already slammed for abuse of powers since its creation in 1955, the government have voted to enshrine the state of emergency laws within their constitution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the French equivalent to the US's Homeland Security Act, and reverts French law to the Code Napoleon era, where suspects were treated as guilty until proven innocent.

Cui Bono?!? Who benefits here?!? The deep French state and the French intelligence/security complex.

The agenda for these attacks has been fulfilled.

Scalia's last moments on a Texas ranch, quail hunting to being found in 'perfect repose'

A gray hearse arrived Saturday — a decoy, Van Etten said, to distract the news media. It wasn’t until about midnight that a van arrived to spirit the body away.

Scalia’s body was taken by a caravan of 20 law enforcement officers three hours west to Sunset Funeral Home in El Paso, where, after the family opted against having an autopsy, it was being prepared to be flown back to Virginia, according to Chris Lujan, a funeral director manager.

“He passed away in his sleep of natural causes,” Lujan said, adding that he was told an official went to the ranch to pronounce Scalia dead before the body could be removed.

Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara told WFAA Dallas that she pronounced Scalia dead due to a heart attack, but Lujan said he had not seen a death certificate reflecting that. Guevara did not immediately return calls Sunday.

We’ve documented and proven that US “officials” outrageously lie to demonize Russia (and here) acting at the request of Syria’s government for military operations within their own borders against rogue terrorists. These terrorists apparently are agents of the US/UK/Israel illegal Wars of Aggression for empire (also here, here, here).

Federal Judge Just Made MAJOR Ruling That May Devastate Hillary’s Election Chances

In a ruling that could prove devastating to the Hillary Clinton campaign, a federal judge has ruled that the State Department must immediately begin publishing Clinton’s private emails.

The ruling, which came down Thursday from U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, is in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed last year by Vice reporter Jason Leopold.

After missing the initial deadline for release back in January, the State Department again attempted to stall release until after the Democratic primary contests. Arguing that this delay would prevent voters from making an informed decision about Clinton in the upcoming caucuses, Leopold’s team convinced Judge Contreras that an immediate release was necessary.

Berlin Braced for Benjamin Netanyahu

Among Netanyahu’s recent proposals is an idea to surround Israel and its current borders with a security fence. That would be a curious echo of the Berlin Wall, which for 28 years divided East and West. Fragments of the wall and its former track can be seen running through Potsdamer Platz.
Note: Great Idea but first give ALL of Palestinian back to the legal, moral and rightful owners the Palestinians. Maybe move all to Madagascar and put a wall around it.

Note: No the last Gaza war and ALL wars were because of the ILLEGAL occupation, murders, torture, and abuse of Palestinians. Everything is the fault of Israel.

The Democrats’ Likely Nominee Appears to Be a Felon — This Is Not Business as Usual

Competing Democrats debate each other one night. Republican rivals take their shots at each other a couple of nights later. An air of frenetic normalcy sets over primary season: The country is $20 trillion in the red and under heightened terrorist threat, yet pols bicker over the legacy of Henry Kissinger and the chameleon nature of Donald Trump – another liability the mogul is marketing as an asset. It is business as usual.

Except nothing about the 2016 campaign is business as usual.

For all the surreal projection of normalcy, the race is enveloped by an extremely serious criminal investigation.

Trump, Jeb Bush clash over George W. Bush

***
Trump began by saying that he gets "along with everybody" and noted he was a "self funder" amid boos from the crowd, which he'd cast as interest groups supporting Jeb Bush.

“Obviously the war in Iraq was a big fat mistake," Trump said.

He then criticized Jeb Bush's response earlier in the campaign on Iraq. “It took him five days before his people told him what to say," about whether it was the right decision to invade.

When asked again whether he still thought the 43rd president should have been impeached, he said: “You call it whatever you want," adding that officials in the Bush administration had "lied."
***
He[JEB] added that while Trump was focused on creating a reality television show, “my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe." That prompted Trump to interject that the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks had occurred while George W. Bush was in office.
***
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who hasn't exactly been a frequent ally of Jeb Bush in recent months, joined with the former Florida governor in arguing that President Bush had kept the nation safe, which again led to Trump saying "the World Trade center came down" during Bush's presidency.

Donald Trump Leads in South Carolina: Can Anyone Stop His Momentum in the GOP Debate?

Trump is then asked about his relationship with Vladimir Putin. He then says "Jeb is so wrong," which causes loud boos. "You've gotta fight ISIS first," Trump asserts. "We have to knock out ISIS." The billionaire businessman then says we have to get rid of ISIS because they're "animals." He also insulted Lindsay Graham.

Bush then responds to Trump by saying “Putin will never be an American ally.”

There's an exchange between Trump and Bush.

Minister seeks punishment for use of phrase ‘Polish death camp’

***
“This will be a project that meets the expectations of Poles, who are blasphemed in the world, in Europe, even in Germany, that they are the Holocaust perpetrators, that in Poland there were Polish concentration camps, Polish gas chambers,” the news agency reported Ziobro as telling Polish RMF radio.

“Enough with this lie. There has to be responsibility,” the minister added.

Concentration camps built by the Nazis outside of Germany are almost never referred to as “Polish” in Poland, but the phrase “Polish death camps” is still widely used in publications outside of the country.

Christchurch: 5.7 quake, 62 aftershocks

There is a 63 percent chance another quake between magnitude 5 and 5.9 will strike Christchurch in the next year, after Sunday's 5.7 quake increased the likelihood from 49 percent

The quake - the largest in the city in four years - hit 15km east of the city at a depth of 15km at 1.13pm.

It hit with such force cliff faces crumbled, items fell off shelves and walls and liquefaction started bubbling. It shook the ground, and it shook people's emotions - just eight days out from the five year anniversary of the February 22, 2011 quake which killed 185 people.

World War Crude

Oil’s flashing red on the screen again today, down 3.5%. With all of the talking heads making predictions on where crude will head next, let’s touch base on our “lower for longer” thesis. As you’ll see there’s some new dialogue to cover… (and lower prices ahead.)
***
Here’s the point, we’re over a year into Saudi Arabia’s full-on oil price war. From the onset, Saudi’s goal was to maintain market share. And the only way to maintain that market share — when oil is VASTLY ABUNDANT — is to pump more and lower your price.

This is a complete U-turn from the OPEC policies of the early 2000s – indeed, OPEC’s old game of cutting production won’t work for Saudi Arabia. In fact, a production cut out of Saudi would only hurt them.

Here’s what I mean…

My 40 Years In Prison

On February 6th, I will have been imprisoned for 40 years! I’m 71 years old and still in a maximum security penitentiary. At my age, I’m not sure I have much time left.

I have earned about 4-5 years good time that no one seems to want to recognize. It doesn’t count, I guess? And when I was indicted the average time served on a life sentence before being given parole was 7 years. So that means I’ve served nearly 6 life sentences and I should have been released on parole a very long time ago. Then there’s mandatory release after serving 30 years. I’m 10 years past that. The government isn’t supposed to change the laws to keep you in prison — EXCEPT if you’re Leonard Peltier, it seems.

Turkey at odds with Russia and now the US on Syria

February 13, 2016, Saturday/ 17:00:00/ DEN?Z ARSLAN | ANKARA

Turkey's faulty foreign policy choices in Syria since the beginning of the conflict, including supporting Sunnis in the sectarian strife, working for the removal of the Syrian regime from power, undermining the Syrian Kurds and downing a Russian jet, have dragged the country to such a point that today, it is at odds with not only Russia but its close ally the US as well.

Syria: Turning Over the Death Card By Jack Perry

snip: Minding our own business? Because let me ask you this: Has Bashar al-Assad said if you don’t sign up for AssadCare, he’ll ding your tax return? Has Syria raised your taxes or caused you to have to go to the food bank? In fact, is there anything whatsoever you stand to gain from Syria? Therefore, considering the hundreds of billions of dollars we’ve already squandered on this fool’s errand, why now should we risk a thermonuclear war over it? Again, if people cannot see that this is the perfect example to show us why the government is run by the insane, they must be working for the government. Just watch, the temptation of another world war will be just too great for the government to resist. The only way we’ll avoid one is if the government feels we could get into a world war faster somewhere else, or thinks the Russians are just trying to trick us into thinking we could have a world war. “Can we get a money-back guarantee on this world war?

“This is not an issue for Turkey or Saudi Arabia alone, we have been saying that the coalition should be doing this,” Çavu?o?lu said on Feb. 13 when asked about the reports of a possible ground operation against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) by Turkey and Saudi Arabia in Syria.

“But there is no solid decision on this, no concrete strategy,” Çavu?o?lu added. “This is not a new idea, but as of today, there is no decision regarding a ground operation.”

Who killed LaVoy Finicum? Lawmakers weigh bill to protect officer's identity

A proposal by Rep. Jeff Barker, D-Aloha, would let courts bar the disclosure of the name of an officer who uses deadly force for 90 days. To do so, a judge would have to agree there's an imminent and specific threat to the officer's life.

Barker put forth a last-minute amendment to House Bill 4087 at the request of the Oregon State Police, who told him they've received death threats against the officer who fatally shot Finicum on Jan. 26. The bill won unanimous approval in the nine-member House Judiciary Committee on Thursday on its way to the full chamber.

Military Analysis: The Turkish 2nd Army. Invasion Force for Syria?

It is reasonable to believe that Turkey is preparing to salvage its failed policy of supporting Islamic fundamentalist mercenaries and terrorist groups in Syria by invading and establishing a safe area for these groups along its southern border with Syria, while at the same time dealing a crushing blow to the Kurdish forces that have been successful in fighting them. Turkey is not only trying to topple the Assad government in Syrian, but is also trying to liquidate the Kurdish threat both in Iraq and Syria, as well as within its own borders.

It is most likely that elements of the Turkish Second Army are positioned along the southern border with Syria, and will form the nucleus of any invasion force. The 2nd Army is responsible for defending Southwestern Turkey. Its headquarters is based in Malatya, with approximately 100,000 troops under its command. The army is comprised of three corps, the 4th, 6th and 7th which are composed of the following units:
