Russian Marines Arrive at Kuweires Airport

The first batch of Russian Marines have arrived to the Kuweires Military Airport as part of an advisory unit that is meant to overlook the Syrian Arab Army’s military operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside. According to a field source with the Tiger Forces in the Al-Bab Plateau, a little less than 50 Russian Marines were deployed to the Kuweires Military Airport on Thursday morning after a short stint in the Latakia Governorate that included trying and advising the new recruits from the National Defense Forces (NDF). While the military source was unable to provide much detail regarding their contingency, he did inform Al-Masdar News that the Russian Marines brought their heavy weaponry with them, including several missiles that were housed in the Kuweires warehouses near the helicopter airfield.

British Parliamentarians pay Homage to Dick Cheney

On 3rd December 2015 at the United States Capitol in Washington a statue was unveiled in honour of Richard “Dick” Cheney, former vice President to George W. Bush. In line with all other past vice-presidents a marble bust will now rest alongside all other United States vice-Presidents.

Coincidentally, the previous day witnessed the British parliament, specifically the House of Commons, inadvertently honour Cheney in the debate on whether to extend the military intervention aimed at ISIS in Iraq into ISIS’s supposed heartland in Syria.

Expert says $7 bln IMF loan makes possible for Ukraine to stabilize currency exchange rate

The crisis in the foreign trade was developed not least because of serious decline in trade turnover with Russia, the expert said. "This is loss of billions dollars," Suslov added. The free trade zone agreement between Ukraine and the European Union effective from January 1, 2016 "will not save the situation at once, because it will lead to further decline of currency earnings because of canceled duties on European goods," Suslov said. The situation will also be aggravated by the banking crisis, the expert said. "Expected bankruptcy of fifty more banks in 2016 will result in outflow of funds from the banking system, increasing the currency demand and exerting an extremely adverse influence on the hryvna rate," he added.

Russia’s new manned spacecraft to be 3.5 times cheaper than US Dragon

Russia’s State Corporation Roscosmos intends to spend over 58 billion rubles ($734 million) on a new manned spacecraft or 3.5 times less than NASA has allocated to SpaceX on the Dragon space vehicle, according to a document published on Friday. The promising new-generation transport spaceship developed by Energiya Rocket and Space Corporation is designed to deliver humans and cargoes to the Moon and near-Earth orbital stations The spacecraft will have a crew of up to four persons. The new space vehicle will be able to operate autonomously for up to 30 days and its flight as part of an orbital station can last up to one year... As was reported earlier, SpaceX will receive $2.6 billion from NASA to develop the Dragon 2 manned spaceship.

However, militants continue receiving supplies of weapons and ammunition from other countries, he added noting that terrorists’ finances considerably shrank as Russian jets continue bombing convoys of fuel trucks and oil extraction facilities. "In general, if we describe the dynamic of military actions on the Syrian territory, I would say that government forces hold strategic initiative and initiative in most directions, that is they are conducting active military actions.

Now the bankers’ triumph is complete

The UK release this week of the Oscar-nominated The Big Short, based on Michael Lewis’s book of the same name, is a fitting bookend to a time when we still believed that the broken financial system might be fixed. But the banks have won. Not a single “top banker” has been jailed and few, if any, have had to return undeserved bonuses. Measures taken since 2008 are being watered down before our eyes and, most dangerous of all, the deeper causes of the crash remain essentially intact. The Occupy movement should call a reunion so we can have a ceremony to bury all remaining hope.

Sanders is no longer an underdog

Hillary Clinton's supporters and allies are now attempting to paint the same picture: You might like Sanders now, but if this self-proclaimed democratic socialist actually becomes the nominee of the party, he will not only get clobbered, but drag down the entire Democratic ticket. Do you want that to happen? You are being dreamy and idealistic; that's commendable, but totally unpractical and unrealistic.

Their message is: Wake up and face the facts. Sanders will not only lose and lose big, but any chance that the Democrats will regain the Senate (they need to pick up four seats) is out the window. Sanders is just plain unelectable.

This cry will become even louder if Sanders wins the first two contests (Iowa and New Hampshire).

OSCE Minsk Group calls on PACE to refrain from resolutions on Nagorno Karabakh

Neighbouring Armenia and Azerbaijan fell out with each other in the late 1980s because of Nagorno Karabakh, the disputed territory that had been part of Azerbaijan before the Soviet Union break-up but was mainly populated by Armenians. In 1991-1994, the confrontation spilled over into large-scale military action for control over the enclave and some adjacent territories. Thousands left their homes on both sides in a conflict that killed 30,000. A truce was called between Armenia and the Nagorno Karabakh republic on one side and Azerbaijan on the other in May 1994...

"Moreover, they are even threatened with prosecution." "Attempts to accuse us of escalating tensions in the bilateral affairs to justify such inadequate actions do not stand up to criticism," the ministry said. "It is common knowledge that it was the United States that unleashed the sanctions aggression against Russia and is carrying out large-scale Russophobic propaganda all over the world trying to shirk responsibility for supporting the armed coup in Ukraine and the bloody war in Donbass.

Relatives of MH17 disaster victims ask Russia, Ukraine to provide radars data

The message was signed by 22 citizens of the Netherlands, Britain, Switzerland, Canada and Australia, who recall that all countries should comply with their commitments to full cooperation in investigating the tragedy (being investigated by the Netherlands). Ukraine has said it does not have the related data, because its radars were allegedly undergoing technical maintenance at the moment. Expert Piet Van Genderen said in parliamentary hearings on Friday that that claim looked very doubtful to him... Earlier, the relatives turned for assistance to US Secretary of State John Kerry, who immediately after the tragedy said that the United States had at its disposal the full information about the disaster, but produced no proof.

The Russian Defense Ministry has described as "absolute nonsense" reports appearing in foreign social networks that the Turkish Air Force has hit another Russian warplane. "These reports are absolute nonsense. All our planes which are destroying terrorist infrastructure in Syria have safely returned to an air base," Russian Defense Ministry Spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov told journalists on Friday. He said that about 50 journalists from leading foreign media outlets of the United States; Britain, France, Italy, China, Vietnam and other countries had visited the Hmeymim air base. It would have been impossible to conceal that fact from them, Konashenkov said. "Now they have seen the true worth of these false speculations, which various "sofa analysts" regularly church out in Western media," the general added.

US to use 'boots on the ground' to fight ISIS: defense chief

The U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS needs to take back the cities Mosul and Raqqa and will use "boots on the ground" as part of its strategy in doing so, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Friday.

"We need to destroy them in those two places, and I'd like to get on with that as soon as possible," Carter, speaking from Davos, Switzerland, said in an interview on CNBC.

He said the coalition is using raids and bombs to take control of the routes between the two cities and cut off communication between them.

"That'll essentially separate the Iraqi theater from the Syrian theater," he said.

When will Hillary Clinton be indicted

A Clinton indictment could lead to a brokered Democratic national convention

With the revelation that Hillary Clinton stored above top secret documents on her unsecured email server, the question being discussed on the news talk shows is not whether she will be indicted but when. Two scenarios have arisen concerning a possible Clinton indictment under the Espionage Act and perhaps other, related charges.

The first scenario has Clinton being indicted before she locks up the nomination.
The second scenario has the indictments being handed down after Hillary Clinton locks down the nomination, presuming that she can fend off the stiff challenge from Sanders. Then, the theory goes, she is forced to withdraw from the race and release her delegates to vote for whom they wish. That hypothetical development means that the Democratic National Convention will be brokered.

Will the DNC Use Super-Delegates to Steal the Primary Election from Bernie Sanders

The Democratic party has a built-in system to eliminate popular candidates with the populace but not as favorable to party leaders by the way of Super Delegates. Super Delegates carry just about 20% of the voting power in the nomination of a Democratic presidential candidate. These Super Delegates do not have to answer to a voting public. They do not have to follow what the people have voted and they can make a choice solely on their personal discretion or relationship with the candidates.

In a tight race, which this one will surely be, it is very likely that Bernie could win the electorate primary pledges but he could lose the nomination by way of his peers. There are 4047 total pledges to be made in the party, 794 by the super delegates.

What is open source software?

Open source software is software whose source code is available for modification or enhancement by anyone.

"Source code" is the part of software that most computer users don't ever see; it's the code computer programmers can manipulate to change how a piece of software—a "program" or "application"—works. Programmers who have access to a computer program's source code can improve that program by adding features to it or fixing parts that don't always work correctly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Recent changes in policy by corporate software vendors is boosting interest in open source software development. I was talking with an IT guy just yesterday whose clients are enraged because the vendors they bought software from (and are now dependent on) are moving to month-to-month subscriptions at elevated prices. One wonders what happened to the laws we have in this nation against monopolies, but that is a matter for another article.

The problem is there are no controls on the subscription prices, which means no matter how hard these clients work, most of the profits are now going to the software companies, who because of the month-to-month payment plan, have no real incentive to improve their products, as they have no need to worry about future sales. As a result, America is starting to lose its competitive edge against other countries, where future sales are dependent on coming up with better products.

I have already commented on the long-term effects of refusing to sell perpetual licenses to software as a single slump in business can shut an entire company's computer systems and productivity down completely. Having dusted off my programming skills during the NSA code challenge I find myself writing more and more of my own utilities rather than go through the hassle of licensing from a corporate vendor, and I suggest that it may be time for a programming renaissance among young people, going back to the early days of computers when we wrote most of the software we used. No, it won't have all the whiz-bang of a corporate product, but be honest, have you ever actually used all the bells and whistles in corporate software products, or just the core function? After my experience with Windows 10 (and I did give it a fair test) my next computer will be a Linux open source box. It is really all I need to keep doing what I do now. Yes, I still love to play with my animation software (at least the one that would actually install properly) but I can live without it.

Ancient Rome was built on the development of new technologies, but then as now technology must be maintained. When Rome could no longer keep the roads and aquaducts in working order, Rome started to fall. The same thing is starting to happen with our computers. Even today we are left to find the problems for ourselves and customer service from the software giants has become an industry joke.

Maksim Litvinenko, Aleksandr's younger brother who lives in Rimini, Italy, responded to the Thursday report by saying it was “ridiculous” to blame the Kremlin for the murder of his brother, stating that he believes British security services had more of a motive to carry out the assassination.

"My father and I are sure that the Russian authorities are not involved. It's all a set-up to put pressure on the Russian government,” Litvinenko told the Mirror, adding that such reasoning is the only explanation as to why the inquiry was launched 10 years after his brother's death.

The trolls in the comments section calling for Bundy and his supporters to be killed is appalling. Rivero's Rangers need to kick some butt,commentarily speaking that is!

Soros Reveals He Is Short The S&P 500: Warns China Will Have A Hard-Landing, Says "Fed Hike Was A Mistake"

As for the Fed, Soros is on the policy mistake bandwagon, saying Yellen may have mistimed liftoff. That echoes sentiments voiced by Marc Faber among other prominent investors and speaks to what we’ve been saying since September, namely that December's hike might go down as the worst-timed rate hike in history. "The investor said he would be surprised if the Federal Reserve raised interest rates again after hiking them in December for the first time in almost a decade," Bloomberg writes. He, like Ray Dalio, says the FOMC is more likely to cut than hike going forward.

U.S. dependence on oil prevents Washington from opposing Saudi Arabia’s repeated human rights violations and support for terrorist groups like ISIS or Boko Haram.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Saudi Arabia also holds a huge chunk of US debt. If pressured, Saudi Arabia can just dump[ treasuries and refuse to rollover investment in the US. They may do it anyway as the pressure from oil prices continues to strain their economy.

IMF recommends paying refugees below the minimum wage

The International Monetary Fund has highlighted the positive effect of public spending on refugees on European GDP, but has also recommended that employers pay them less than the minimum wage. EurActiv France reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is amazing how blind the money-junkies are. If you are not paying workers a decent wage or salary, they will not be going to the shopping malls to buy what corporations are selling, even with the new trend of forcing people to buy things they do not want or need. Money cannot just pile up at the top. It must recirculate to keep the economy working.

12 trigger events that could unleash economic collapse in the U.S

As practically the entire world seems to be nearing the end of its run financially, many people are beginning to wonder how much longer America has before our own teetering house of cards finally falls. Nobody can say for sure how it will all play out, of course, but there are a number of potential scenarios that could act as trigger events to bring about a cataclysmic economic collapse here in the United States, in the very near future.

According to Jim Willie from GoldenJackass.com, the following imminent events could predicate a complete financial breakdown, unlike anything ever before seen in America:

For the First Time Ever, Older Albums Are Out-Selling Newer Albums

If albums are still worth billions of dollars, then a majority of those billions are now going to older releases. According to US-based data just released by Nielsen Music, older, ‘catalog’ albums outsold newly-released albums in 2015, the first time that has ever happened.

Nielsen categorizes an album as ‘catalog’ when its release date is more than 18 months ago. In almost all cases, an album has exhausted its new-release sales energy after that point, and becomes an older selection.

Boston Brakes? How to Hack a New Car With Your iPhone or Android

According to crafty insurance moguls, their revolutionary ‘smart’ plug-in device connects to your car’s computer port which is normally located just beneath the steering wheel. They claim that it only records drivers when they accelerate, brake and steer. They claim that this data will reveal how erratic a driver you are, which in turn will determine your road risk actuary – and how much you will have to pay for auto insurance.

Most ‘smart’ people realize that this smart device will not save you money, as much as it will give insurance companies like Progressive an easy metric by which to raise your rates, not lower them.

If that isn’t bad enough, now cyber researchers in America have shown how hackers can send a simple text message to manipulate your car’s functions – even disable your car’s brakes.

Clinton’s Emails: A Criminal Charge Is Justified

When asked whether she had her server “wiped,” she assumed an air of grandmotherly befuddlement: “What, like with a cloth or something?” she said. “I don’t know how it works digitally at all.”

The current news, reported in the Journal and elsewhere, is that her server contained information at the highest level of classification, known as SAP, or Special Access Program. This is a level so high that even the inspector general for the intelligence community who reported the discovery did not initially have clearance to examine it.

The server also contained messages showing her contempt for classification procedures. This was bred at least in part by obvious familiarity with exactly “how it works”—such as when, an email shows, she directed a staff member simply to erase the heading on a classified document, converting it into “unpaper,” and send it on a “nonsecure” device.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UPDATE: For some reason the Wall Street Journal has moved this article behind their subscriber wall, right after I asked if Hillary was selling US secrets using her email server and collecting/laundering the payments through her "charitable" foundation.

Ted Wade hasn’t cared about politics enough to cast a vote in a U.S. presidential election for almost a quarter of a century, back when he supported Ross Perot’s independent candidacy in 1992.

But Republican Donald Trump’s 2016 White House bid has motivated Wade to get involved and he plans to support the real estate mogul in Nevada’s nominating caucus next month. Trump is a “non-politician” who can fix the “chaos” in Washington, he says

University of South Florida students pass Israel divestment resolution

On Tuesday night, the student senate at the University of South Florida in Tampa passed a joint resolution calling on the board of trustees of the USF Foundation to divest from corporations involved in Israel’s occupation and human rights violations.

The resolution, which passed in a landslide vote of 32-12 with 5 abstentions, demands that the university pull its investments in corporations that “are continuously and knowingly complicit” in violations of Palestinian rights.

It lists Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard, G4S, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman as examples of such companies whose shares are in the university’s portfolio.

Mossad-linked group’s case against US trade union thrown out

The National Labor Relations Board has dismissed a case brought by a Mossad-linked Israeli group against a US trade union over its support for Palestinian rights.

In August 2015, the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America – known as UE – voted to back the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) on Israel.

In October, Shurat HaDin filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, the statutory body that enforces US trade union laws, to try to force UE to abandon its decision.

The complaint alleged that UE’s resolution violated the prohibition in US labor law against secondary boycotts.

Shurat HaDin is an Israeli organization that acts as a proxy for Israel’s Mossad spying and assassination agency. It uses legal cases to harass supporters of Palestinian rights, a strategy known as lawfare.

Pharma Drug Trial in France Results in Brain Damage and Death

A recent medical trial in France has left one person dead, three others with possibly irreversible brain damage, and a grim reminder of the dangers of drugs. The study, carried out by Biotrial, a pharmaceutical research firm, was using healthy volunteers to determine the maximum tolerability of an experimental painkiller manufactured by Bial, a Portuguese drug maker. In return for their taking part in the two-week test, the volunteers are said to have each been paid a fee of 1,900 euros (US $2,070). With two more men also said to have been hospitalized, and all six participants having taken the drug at the highest dosage used in the trial, the outcome has been described as the worst tragedy of its kind to have taken place in France.

The inclusion of the "Natural Born" requirement for the Presidency was proposed at the Constitutional Convention by Chief Justice John Jay, who wrote, "Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government and to declare expressly that the Command in Chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen..."

Could the DC, Baltimore blizzard eclipse historic snowstorm totals?

If 18 inches of snow falls in Washington, D.C., then it would eclipse the "Blizzard of 1996" and the "Snowmageddon Storm" of Feb. 5-6, 2010.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Washington, D.C., was 21.0 inches on Jan. 28, 1922, during the "Knickerbocker Storm."
If 18 inches of snow falls on Baltimore, then it would tie the top 10 storm from Dec. 18-19, 2009.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Baltimore was 23.3 inches on Jan. 28, 1922.

Snowfall records date back to 1884 at Washington, D.C., and 1892 at Baltimore.

Record-breaking or not, the weekend blizzard will prove to be very disruptive over a broad area of the mid-Atlantic and perhaps part of southern New England as well.

I hope the FBI is checking into the reason WHY Hillary had highly sensitive information on her private, non-government server that was HIDDEN FROM CONGRESS AND POSSIBLE OVERSIGHT BY OTHER GOV'T AGENCIES.

Did Zero order her to do this as part of some treasonous plot to forward our national security information to hostile countries such as Iran?

Did Hillary SELL access to her private server to the highest bidders by giving them passwords to her email accounts where classified information was located?

Although Hillary was Secretary of State, did she have 'need to know' for each of the various Top Secret/SAP programs data found on her server? If not, for what reason did she possess such information?

Was Hillary 'cleared' for each program which she possessed information for on her server?

Was there any classified information on her server which there was no compelling need for her to have?

There’s a lot about Ted Cruz that should worry constitutionalists considering voting for the senator in the presidential election of 2016.

Recently, Infogram published brief but illuminating biographies of several of Cruz’s key foreign policy advisors. The information disclosed in these revelations could trouble many constitutionalists otherwise keen on the senator and who rely on him to restore the rule of law to the White House.

The first person highlighted in the article is the chairman of Cruz’s foreign policy team, Chad Sweet (shown).

Sweet’s professional and political background betrays Cruz’s claims of being someone who promises “not to continue going in the same direction” and to “bring power out of Washington, and back to we the people.”
