Checkmate

Putin's key talking points could not but be easily accessible to the Global South — his prime audience, much more than the industrialized West.

1) The export of color — or monochromatic — revolutions is doomed.

2) The alternative to the primacy of statehood is chaos. This implies that the Assad system in Syria may be immensely problematic, but it's the only game in town. The alternative is ISIS/ISIL/Daesh barbarism. There's no credible "moderate opposition" — as there was not in NATO-"liberated" Libya.

3) Only the UN — as flawed as it may be — is a guarantor of peace and security in our imperfect, realpolitik geopolitical environment.

Top Senate Dems Want Benghazi Committee Disbanded After Majority Leader's Controversial Comments

Top Senate Democrats sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday asking him to disband the Select Committee on Benghazi after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) praised the committee for doing political damage to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

In the letter, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and other Democrats said that McCarthy, who is in line to replace Boehner after the speaker retires, had revealed that the panel's true purpose was political.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Harry Reid, et all: this committee will disband, at the simultaneous moment when pigs fly, and hell freezes over.

The problem Hilary has with generating trust is not new; it is simply way too in voters' faces with Benghazi to ignore, and your know it.

Militants Launch Major Offensive on Syrian Forces in Golan Heights with Help of Israel

The sources said that the FSA and Nusra militants stormed the National Defense Forces’ (NDF) positions at Tal Taranjah, Mazra’a Al-Amil, Tal Hamriyah, and Tal Al-Ahmar, resulting in a series of intense firefights that took most of the Monday morning and afternoon before they dissipated due to the coming nightfall.

Russian air strikes targeted CIA-backed rebels in Syria: Senator McCain

Senator John McCain on Thursday said Russia’s initial air strikes in Syria targeted recruits in the Free Syrian Army rebel group backed by the United States.

“I can absolutely confirm to you that they were strikes against our Free Syrian Army recruits that have been armed and trained by the CIA because we have communications with people there,” McCain, head of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview on CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was going to post this comment on the original article, but I am now being blocked from commenting by Raw Story. I guess they feel that my analysis is not up to their high standards! :) Feel free to copy and use as your own.


So, in order to bash Russia, the US is now forced to admit that the CIA does arm and support terrorist groups trying to overthrow foreign governments!

Remember when they called the independent media "tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy wackos" for suggesting that?

All you need to know about John McCain to understand his intellectual prowess is that he thought Sarah Palin would make a great Vice-President.

Baltimore cop shoots man armed with chapstick and warns his brother: ‘I’ve got a bullet for you, too’

A Baltimore police officer shot and wounded a man after he reached into his pocket to show the chapstick he was carrying.

John Rau was with his brother Monday night when he was stopped by police Major Byron Conaway, although the police department has not said why, reported WJZ-TV.

“All the guy said was, ‘What’s your name, sir?’ and I was like, ‘For what?’ and then he jumped out of the car with his gun and told me to put my hands up,” Rau said. “(The officer asked), ‘What you got in your hand?’ I had a cigarette in one hand, and I just put my hand in my pocket, because I was just putting chapstick on, and I said 10 times, ‘It’s chapstick, only chapstick, officer.”

Witnesses said the officer, who is black, shot the 40-year-old Rau, who is white, in the thigh when he reached into his pocket.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all those who can in Baltimore, it is time you vote with your feet, and leave the city entirely; it is no longer worthy of your support, where cops can "go rogue" in a heartbeat,and what he did is considered standard operating procedure.

And I have to wonder if the behaviour of that officer might be tied to any prescription medication he may have been taking containing SSRIs.

Benjamin Netanyahu United Nations Live Stream: Watch The Israeli Prime Minister Address Leaders At General Assembly

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations three years ago, he held up an image of a cartoon bomb and drew a red line through it. His message was clear: prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. During the Israeli leader’s address to the U.N. Thursday, he was expected to once again talk about the dangers of Iran. The issue of Palestine also was expected to form a large part of the speech.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So far Netanyahu has not resorted to a silly-assed cartoon, but his message is a repeat of every Israeli address to the UN; Israel is good, Israel is a Democracy, Israel only wants peace, Iran is bad, Syria is bad, Lebanon is bad, yadda, yadda, yadda, yadda, give us money!

Netanyahu's focus is in trying to wreck the P5+1 deal and he is rehashing all the old kosher baloney about how Iran will do evil things if they are given money (like Israel doesn't?). Of course, nobody is giving Iran money in the P5+1 deal, they are returning money seized from Iran as part of the sanctions.

What is significant is that the few reverse shots showing the UN General Assembly reveal quite a few empty chairs. I am not surprised. These people are very busy and they have heard all of Netanyau's unsupported assertions so many times before. Politeness and fear of the Israel lobby's retaliations can only go so far to keep those seats filled. And what is notably absent from Netanyahu's face this year is the self-confident smirk all too broadly on display in times past. Netanyahu knows his Iran agenda is in trouble, and in the way of Israel hard-line politics, that means he is in trouble!

SYRIA: “NOT A PROXY WAR. IT’S ONE STEP CLOSER”

This Wall Street Journal headline sums up the absurdity of the situation: “Russian Airstrike in Syria Targeted CIA-Backed Rebels, U.S. Officials Say.”

We noted years ago that a proxy war is raging in Syria … but things are getting even more over-heated.

Political risk expert Ian Bremmer sums up the situation:

Russian forces will be striking Assad enemies, some of whom are directly supported by the US and its allies. That’s not a proxy war. It’s one step closer.
What could possibly go wrong???

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The rhetoric of the corporate whorespondents looks more desperate by he minute, because there is no way to logically spin this without the US government appearing very much like the netherside of a donkey!!!

THE FLAG THAT SLAPPED ZION IN THE FACE

The Palestinian flag was raised outside the United Nations headquarters in New York for the first time.

The ceremony on Wednesday afternoon was attended by diplomats in the U.N.’s Rose Garden shortly after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly, criticized Israel and said that the Palestinians were no longer bound by the Oslo Accords.

On Thursday, the flag will be hung in a permanent location alongside U.N. member flags, CNN reported.

The General Assembly voted 119-8 on Sept. 10 to allow the Palestinian flag at headquarters. Israel and the United States were among the dissenters, along with Canada and Australia.

ALL OUT WAR: Iranian Troops To Conduct Ground Attacks In Syria

Lebanese Hezbollah troops and Iraqis will also join the offensive.

Iran has dispatched hundreds of ground troops to syria to fight alongside the forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

A full scale war is unfolding in Syria, with a ground offensive being planned to coincide with Russian air strikes, according to Lebanese sources.

“The (Russian) air strikes will in the near future be accompanied by ground advances by the Syrian army and its allies,” one of the sources told Reuters.

“It is possible that the coming land operations will be focused in the Idlib and Hama countryside,” the source added.

Lebanese Hezbollah troops will also join the Iranian forces, the sources note, as well as Iraqis.

Undercover video: Clinton campaign worker caught breaking election law by registering Nevada Hispanics to vote with 'meme' photo of Trump that reads: 'THIS IS MY RESTING B**CH FACE'

A Hillary Clinton campaign worker has been caught on film apparently committing a felony by advising Las Vegas Hispanics how to vote while he is helping them register.

Hidden camera footage shows Henry Engelstein, identified as a campaign 'fellow,' reeling in Spanish-speaking Nevadans on a Las Vegas street with a comical picture of Donald Trump on his smartphone.

'THIS IS MY RESTING B**CH FACE,' the photo's caption reads, meme-style.

'Un payaso muy grande, si!' Engelstein tells passers-by. ('Yes! A giant clown!') In the video, shown to DailyMail.com exclusively by the conservative group Project Veritas Action, he boasts that Latinos' anger against the billionaire Republican front-runner is ample motivation for them to register as voters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the Blueprint for the New America, we propose a rule that if any campaign laws are broken, the candidate is immediately disqualified to hold public office, on the theory that if he or she cannot get their own staff to comply with the law, they are by default incompetent to run a city, county, state, or nation.

US Complains As Russia Bombs its Terrorists

By Tony Cartalucci

The New York Times in its recent article, “Russians Strike Targets in Syria, but Not ISIS Areas,” attempts to frame Russia’s recent actions in Syria as dishonest and dangerous. It reports:

"Russian aircraft carried out a bombing attack against Syrian opposition fighters on Wednesday, including at least one group trained by the C.I.A., eliciting angry protests from American officials and plunging the complex sectarian war there into dangerous new territory."

This of course would only make Russia’s actions dishonest or dangerous if groups trained by the US CIA were in fact the “moderates” the US claims they are. However, they are not, and thus Russia’s actions are duly justified as is the expansion of their current policy...

Weird garbled Windows 7 update baffles world – now Microsoft reveals the truth

The Register poked Microsoft about the issue, and a spokesman told us: "We incorrectly published a test update and are in the process of removing it."

How that sort of thing happens, though, we're not totally clear on. The bizarre update has certainly confused a load of Windows users, who hit the support forums in search of answers.

Beginning with Windows 10, Microsoft has begun touting a new strategy of "Windows as a service," where updates are continuous and automatic, and only enterprise customers are given the option of refusing them.

There's no evidence that Redmond's goof caused anyone any real harm in this case, but the fact that a test update was inadvertently released to the mainstream deployment channel should definitely give Windows 10 users pause.

Zimperium researcher Joshua J Drake says twin vulnerabilities to be patched in an upcoming update impact all versions of Android in use.

But users could already be at risk; the consultancy says Google has already pushed a fix for the most critical hole affecting the newest Android phones "despite" an embargo on the news, meaning criminals could be cooking attacks well in advance of patch distribution.

U.S. President Obama’s central case against Syria’s Bashar al-Assad (and his central argument against Assad’s supporter Russia on that matter) is that Assad was behind the sarin gas attack in Ghouta Syria on 21 August 2013 — but it’s all a well-proven lie, as will be shown here.

Damascus accuses US-led coalition of breaking int'l law, state sovereignty

British and French airstrikes on Syrian territory violate internationally recognized legal norms, the Syrian Foreign Minister complained on Thursday.

“What Britain and France are doing in the Syrian airspace flies in the face of international law and is a flagrant violation of the national sovereignty of the Syrian Republic,” Walid Muallem said.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed as “untrue” a statement earlier made by his US counterpart John Kerry about the US-led coalition’s actions in Syria being fully in line with the UN Charter.

"Today I said to John Kerry that, unlike in the case with Iraq, which invited the coalition to move in, there has been no such invitation from Syria, nor has the coalition asked for any such permission from the UN Security Council…

US Mistakenly Bombs Free Syrian Army, Obama Personally Approves Airstrikes

On Tuesday, The Daily Beast reported that America had bombed the Free Syrian Army in Syria, killing several members of the FSA, in a botched targeting of ISIS. Josh Rogin stated:

Since U.S. airstrikes against ISIS in Syria began on Sept. 22, there has been no coordination between the U.S. military and its alleged partners on the ground, according to FSA leaders, civilian opposition leaders, and intelligence sources who have been briefed on the U.S. and allied military operation.

Unfortunately for the Obama administration, President Obama has been directly tied to the targets picked in the Syrian campaign. Just a week and a half ago, the Wall Street Journal reported that Obama’s generals would not have the ability to approve targets – instead, the commander-in-chief would channel LBJ and pick the bombing sites:

U.S.-Led Air Campaign Is Linked to Civilian Deaths in Syria

ANTAKYA, Turkey — An airstrike by the American-led military coalition in northern Syria this week killed eight civilians, including two women and five children, according to neighbors and relatives of the dead.

U.S. airstrikes on ISIS 'killed Syrian civilians after mistaking grain silo for jihadist base'

At least two civilian workers were killed after missiles launched in a US airstrike targeting an ISIS-controlled region in Syria struck grain silos, according to a human rights group.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights believes aircraft may have mistaken the mills and grain storage areas in the northern Syrian town of Manbij for an Islamic State base.

The US-led coalition has been targeting towns and villages in northern and eastern Syria controlled by the Islamic State group since last week.

‘The Civilian Will Pay’: Death Of Innocents Mount As US Bombing Of Syria Expands

With a new wave of U.S.-led airstrikes overnight in Syria, reporting from the ground inside the country show that in addition to the damage being done to Islamic State (or ISIS) targets and other militant factions, the civilian death toll is rapidly increasing.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, bombings on oil refineries held by ISIS in the northeast of Syria killed fourteen militants associated with the group, but also five civilians. In total, since the bombing of Syria began on Monday, SOHR estimates that of the 183 total killed by U.S. bombs, 36 were non-combatants, many of them women and children.

ISKENDERUN, Turkey — The little girl was home in northern Syria at around 8:30 on a recent summer night when the missile streaked down from the sky. Her uncle, 21-year-old Talha Amouri, was outside when the explosion ripped through the house, knocking him off his feet. He dug through the wreckage for hour after frantic hour, pulling out members of his family. He found five of his nieces — ages 8, 7, 6, 5, and 3 — dead. But the youngest, 2-year-old Nariman, clung to life, her arms locked around her mother, who had also survived. Nariman was rushed to a hospital across the nearby border with Turkey, in the seaside city of Iskenderun, where she now lies helpless beneath a web of tubes and bandages.

Hundreds of civilians killed in US-led air strikes on Isis targets – report

Pot! Kettle! Black!

The air campaign against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has killed more than 450 civilians, according to a new report, even though the US-led coalition has so far acknowledged just two non-combatant deaths.

More than 5,700 air strikes have been launched in the campaign, which nears its first anniversary this Saturday, with its impact on civilians largely unknown.

Now Airwars, a project by a team of independent journalists, is publishing details of 52 strikes with what it believes are credible reports of at least 459 non-combatant deaths, including those of more than 100 children.

It says there is a “worrying gulf between public and coalition positions” on the campaign’s toll on civilians.

Sen. John McCain: Putin Doing Assad's 'Dirty Work' With Airstrikes

Russian President Vladimir Putin did Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's "dirty work" with airstrikes against rebel forces — and "it's a classic example of the Russians treating the United States with complete contempt," Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see. First there is the matter that the United States intervention in Syria, uninvited by the Syrian government and without a UN mandate, is a violation of international law and the UN charter. Second, contempt has nothing to do with it. The Syrian government asked for Russia's help against an insurgency that is at oleast in part yet another covert attempt by the US to regime change a foreign nation, which again is is a violation of international law and the UN charter. So John McCain is clearly complicit in the war crimes being committed by the US Government.

Information warfare? Russia accused of killing civilians in Syria

It didn’t take long, after Russia began its anti-terrorist bombing campaign, for social media to be flooded with ‘evidence’ of civilian casualties. The claims were readily repeated by Western mainstream media.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported that it conducted 20 sorties on the first day of the Syrian operation and bombed eight targets in Syria, including weapon and fuel depots and command centers of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) group. All targets were far from urban areas, the ministry stressed.

Virtually simultaneously, reports started surfacing on social media claiming Russia is not attacking terrorists. Instead, it’s claimed Russian warplanes attacked residential areas, killing dozens of civilians. Others said there was no IS presence in the attack areas and these positions were actually held by “moderate rebels.”

From Syria To Asia To Russia – Terror Network Organized By NATO and Turkey

By Brandon Turbeville

Uyghur Terror Networks Span Continents, Have Root In Turkey and NATO.

With the possible entrance of China into the Syrian crisis, a spate of recent articles has appeared in various media outlets discussing the importance of Uyghur terrorism in China and the effect those acts may have on its decision whether or not to truly commit troops or other means of assistance to the Syrian government. These discussions, however, have typically been superfluous and tangential, rarely attributing the importance of the connections between the Syrian crisis and the Xinjang Uyghur separatist movement.

While many might suspect at first glance that the two crises are unrelated, the fact is that the same powers that control the savages raping and beheading their way across Syria also control the Uyghur “separatists” wreaking havoc in Xinjang China...

Putin Trumps Obama at the U.N.

If the peevish expression on Barack Obama’s face was any indication, Vladimir Putin is a force in the world who cannot be ignored. Ever since Russia annexed Crimea in response to the United States – and NATO – backed coup in Ukraine, Obama and the corporate media have falsely declared that Putin is isolated from the rest of the world. They claim he is a monster, a despot and an irrelevance on the world stage.

While the G8 member nations turned themselves into the G7 in order to snub Russia, president Putin was making friends elsewhere. He may have been isolated from the United States and its clique, but not from China and the other BRICS nations or Syria or Iran or Iraq. While western nations use the Islamic State (ISIS) as a ruse to exact regime change in Syria, Putin has formed an alliance to carry out the task of eradicating that danger which was created by western intervention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Crimea was not annexed. Crimea asked to merge with Russia. Otherwise, a good summary.

U.S. massive aid to Israel must stop: My Word

A Sept. 21 My Word column criticized a billboard by our organization announcing: "$10 million a day to Israel? Our money is needed in America!" ("Anti-Israel billboards mislead drivers").

The commentary was by Hava L. Holzhauer, the Florida regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, which frequently expends some of its nearly $100 million endowment advocating for Israel.

U.S. politicians from both parties have given more of our money to Israel than to any other nation, thanks to the multibillion-dollar pro-Israel lobby. In fact, the U.S. historically has given more aid to Israel than to all of sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America combined.

“Today, Russian aerospace force jets delivered pinpoint strikes on eight ISIS terror group targets in Syria. In total, 20 flights were made,” spokesperson for the Russian Defense Ministry, Igor Konashenkov, said.

“As a result, arms and fuel depots and military equipment were hit. ISIS coordination centers in the mountains were totally destroyed,” he added.

Konashenkov said that all the flights took place after air surveillance and careful verification of the data provided by the Syrian military. He stressed that Russian jets did not target any civilian infrastructure and avoided these territories.

Starikov: Russia is forcing the Americans to destroy their own project in its infancy

Even cats don't get born on their own and such high-profile terrorist organisations, packaged with beautiful Hollywood promos don't appear on their own. Of course, it is a project, the same project of the global banking elite. as once was Adolf Hitler, and before that where the Bolsheviks-Trotskyists, who have destroyed the Russian empire and were going to crush the neighboring states.

Islamic state is a can opener in the hands of the global elite, with which it was planning to destroy the world order, as it is.

Anti-Putin Propaganda Begins: ‘Moderate’ Terrorists Complaining That Russia Bombed Them

The Independent, a British media outlet, says that ‘activists’ in Homs and Hama provinces have posted images and video online claiming to show Russian planes bombing groups of non-Isis rebels who are fighting Bashar al-Assad’s forces‘.

There are numerous glaring problems with this assessment. The first, obviously, being that anonymous ‘activists’ provided the information. The second being that the video that news outlet links to shows no jets at all, let alone ‘Russian planes’. The third is that those ‘non-ISIS rebels’ are still ‘fighting Bashar al-Assad’s forces’, who are the main anti-ISIS force in the entire country, which makes them part of the problem.

Wait! You’re bombing the wrong terrorists!

The anti-Putin, Russophobe whine-fest is about to reach a new peak of absurdity as the US accuses Russia of bombing the moderate Syrian rebels instead of ISIS – the problem is that there has never been a “moderate” opposition in Syria distinguishable from ISIS. This is why more than a year of American “attacks” on ISIS have yielded no results. The US has been supporting and funding the “moderate” opposition to Assad while supposedly attacking ISIS, only to find that our own weapons end up in the hands of ISIS! And now, Russia is going after all of them, whatever they may call themselves: ISIS, ISIL, IS, Nusra, al Qaeda, the moderate Syrian rebels, the Free Syria Army, the moderate Syrian ISIS terrorists…

So now, the message Russia is getting from Washington is: stop bombing the Nusra branch of al Qaeda and bomb the ISIS branch of al Qaeda! But since they all work together to overthrow President Assad, they are all on the same side and completely indistinguishable from each other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

None of this would be happening if the US government could learn to stop messing around with other peoples' countries!

After Decades of Manufactured Terror, Putin Points to Naked Empire With ISIS Bombings

When Putin carries out airstrikes in Syria, he sees ISIS.

The Curse of American Exceptionalism

By Thomas DiLorenzo

October 1, 2015

Nothing seems to cause one of the neocon talking heads to fall into a rage more than discussing a politician or political candidate who “doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism!!” Sean Hannity seems especially unhinged under such circumstances. This is because “American exceptionalism” has long been the ideological underpinning of – and justification for –the American empire and all of its military adventures. As shills for the American military/industrial complex and the empire that it is forever expanding, Hannity, O’Reilly, Limbaugh, and all the rest are required by their masters to express outrage – outrage! – whenever anyone questions the propriety of American imperialism and empire building........

Join the Games: Russia takes out Arms Depots paid for by Western Taxpayers

A Macedonian view.

Russia launched its first air strikes in Syria Wednesday, Sept. 30 was confirmed by the Russian Defense Ministry in Moscow and quickly criticized by US officials. US appeared very concerned of "civilian" casualties. Interesting this concern came from a country that has killed nearly 2 million civilians in the past 15 years.
Moscow stressed that it acted in support of Bashar Assad’s war on the Islamic State, assisted by other foreign powers including Iran and Iraq working together from an allied command center in Baghdad.

US Funded NGO in Syria Uses Old Photo to Claim Civilian Death in Russian Airstrikes

From the moment the first Russian warplanes started launching attacks inside Syria, a new campaign in the information war was also launched, with various groups trying to get their stamps on conflicting stories about what exactly Russia attacked, whether they hit ISIS, ISIS allies, pro-US rebels, or just random Syrian civilians.

At the center of one of the bigger controversies was the “White Helmets” organization. Formerly known as the Syria Civil Defense, the group is heavily funded by the US State Department, and while the group claims to be purely an aid group, and not to be taking any side in the war, their statements overwhelmingly tow the official US line,

BEX Alert!!! - "Syrian Rebels Taken Aback by Russian Airstrikes"

BEIRUT, Lebanon — “They are the most violent strikes,” says a man filming the grim aftermath of what he asserts was a Russian air attack on the town of Talbiseh, in the Homs Province of Syria. “This is the Russian criminal regime.” The voice then trials off into laments and prayers: “Oh God, oh God, oh God. God is all we need.”

He concludes: “This is what the criminal Russian planes did.”

When Russia declared it would start hitting the Islamic State in Syria, opponents of President Bashar al-Assad were immediately concerned that it would target them as well — insurgents who rebelled long before the Islamic State, also called ISIS or ISIL, existed in its current form.
