The Dow Has Already Fallen Nearly 900 Points From The Peak Of The Market

In an eerie repeat of what we witnessed in 2008, U.S. stocks are steadily sliding throughout the summer as we head toward the month of September. From August 1st, 2008 to September 1st, 2008 the Dow fell by nearly 700 points. And of course we all remember what happened the following month. Right now, we are watching a similar thing happen. The Dow has plummeted nearly 700 points since July 16th, and it is down nearly 900 points from the peak of the market back in May. At this point the Dow has now fallen for six days in a row and eleven of the last thirteen. Of course most of the talking heads on television are still insisting that everything is going to be just fine and that a repeat of 2008 is not possible. So what do you think? Should we trust them?

Did Jonathan Pollard Really Cause Antisemitism?

Did jailed Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard’s actions provoke anti-semitism in the United States?

In the days leading up to the July 28 revelation that the U.S. has granted Pollard parole and that he will be released from federal prison on Nov. 20, that charge was made by former State Department counsel Abraham Sofaer. Commenting on then-unconfirmed reports that Pollard would be paroled, Sofaer—who was part of the U.S. team that investigated the Pollard affair in the 1980s—claimed Pollard “created a terrible situation for American Jews who then obviously [were] all the more suspected.”

Why Pollard Should Never Be Released (The Traitor)

Pollard, these officials told me, had done far more damage to American national security than was ever made known to the public; for example, he betrayed elements of four major American intelligence systems. In their eyes, there is no distinction between betraying secrets to an enemy, such as the Soviet Union, and betraying secrets to an ally... Many officials said they were convinced that information Pollard sold to the Israelis had ultimately wound up in the hands of the Soviet Union...

6 Ways the Medical System Makes Us Ill Before Kindergarten

Mothers of small children ask me about natural health all the time. It happens in the line at my favorite natural grocer, or after a yoga class. Sometimes I receive questions through email or through a friend of a friend. It’s a universal desire for parents to give their children the best start possible, but our medical system is not set up to do that at all. In fact, in 6 key ways, it is harming our children and damaging their prospects for future health. Here’s how:

4 Tricks for Getting Your Hospital Bill Reduced

Nearly one in three Americans received a surprise medical bill over the past two years for hospital procedures and healthcare services they believed their insurance policy would cover.

That’s the key finding of a new national survey by Consumer Reports that also found most Americans are so confused about their rights to contest an unexpected health bill that more than half (57 percent) simply pay the bill in full.

“For years we have heard horror stories from consumers hit with surprise medical bills following routine and emergency procedures,” said DeAnn Friedholm, director of the policy and advocacy arm of Consumer Reports.

“Even if you go to a hospital in your network, the unfortunate truth is that there is no guarantee that all your treatment — whether it’s the radiologist, anesthesiologist, or lab work — will be treated as in-network, leaving patients owing thousands of dollars they never anticipated.”

Could Google seal the Presidency? Voters are far more likely to pick candidates whose name appears at the top of a search, study shows

Google could change the result of the Presidential election based on where it ranks candidates in its search results, a study has shown.

Undecided voters researching election candidates were far more likely to back those who appeared towards the top of a Google search, even if the results were negative, scientists said.

The study by the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, showed that deliberately influencing where candidates fell in search results swung opinion by 12 per cent.

"We Have A Civil War": Inside Turkey's Descent Into Political, Social, And Economic Chaos

Turkey has had a difficult time explaining why, after obtaining NATO support for a new offensive campaign to root out "terrorists", its efforts have concentrated almost solely on the PKK and not on ISIS. As we’ve discussed in great detail (here, here, and here), and as the entire world is now acutely aware, Ankara’s newfound zeal for eradicating ISIS is nothing more than a cover for its efforts to undermine support for the PKK ahead of snap elections where President Tayyip Erdogan hopes to win back AKP’s absolute majority in parliament which it lost last month for the first time in 12 years.

7 Biggest Rip-Offs in Tech Retail

If there was a poster child for the tech price markup, the HDMI cable would undoubtedly be it. Because they are necessary to run everything from a DVD player to an Xbox and rarely come with the hardware they're designed to serve, consumers are forced to buy HDMI cables separately. And with that comes some huge price jumps.

No, you do not need to get your eyes checked: One HDMI cable costs over $1,000 at Best Buy. And, yes, you can get a similar HDMI cable for under $50 on Monoprice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday, while celebrating the restoration of this website to working condition, my wife mentioned that our TV kept shutting off, then turning back on, over and over. Calls to Time/Warner's Caribbean call-farm as usual proved pointless, as did a reset of the TV set's digital features. Websites reported this being a major problem for modern TVs with all sorts of arcane suggestions as to why, but I swapped out the HDMI cable ($80) and it appeared the problem went away.

UPDATE: After almost 24 hours the problem with my TV set (year and a half old) has come back. Apparently there is a DRM system called HDCP that sits on top of the HDMI and if anything goes wrong with that it shifts the output resolution from the cable box lower, down from 1080i to 720p. Like all other DRM this system does not stop content pirates one bit, but screws up life for law abiding citizens who are trying to watch a movie without constant interruptions. Time/Warner blames Samsung. Samsung blames Atlanta Scientific (who makes the cable box). Atlanta Scientific blames Time/Warner. Nobody knows how to make it work and the universal recommendation is "buy a new one of everything and maybe, maybe, the problem will go away!"

Isn't life under fascism grand!

One of the reasons TPP and TTIP are in trouble is that they want to force other countries to adopt American DRM systems even though their track record to date has been one of high cost, needless complexity, and an abysmal failure at accomplishing its intended purpose. The content pirates are still pirating and ordinary consumers are punished for their crimes.

Windows 10 Forced Updates Causing Endless Crash Loops

I think we can now all agree: Microsoft’s hardline policy on Windows 10’s forced updates is silly. Very silly. Since launching nine days ago Windows Update has sent out an unstable graphics driver which switched off monitors, a buggy security patch which corrupted Windows Explorer and there are now a number of reports that a third update is causing Window 10 machines to crash over and over again…

The patch in question is KB3081424 (ironically enough a roll-up of bug fixes) and during its update process affected users find it fails and triggers the message: “We couldn’t complete the updates, undoing the changes.” Undoing them results in a mandatory system reboot, but as soon as the user logs back on Windows 10’s update process kicks in and tries to install KB3081424 again.

I’m sure you’re way ahead of me here, but since Windows 10 updates cannot be stopped KB3081424 tries to install over and over again which leaves systems caught in endless reboot loops.

The 70th Anniversary of the Bombing of Nagasaki

70 years ago (August 9, 1945) an all-Christian bomber crew dropped a plutonium bomb over Nagasaki City, Japan, instantly vaporizing, incinerating or otherwise annihilating tens of thousands of innocent civilians, a disproportionately large number of them Japanese Christians. The explosion mortally wounded uncountable thousands of other victims who succumbed to the blast, the intense heat and/or the radiation.

In 1945, the US was regarded as the most Christian nation in the world (that is, if you can label as truly Christian a nation whose churches are proponents of eye-for-an-eye retaliation, are supportive of America’s military and economic exploitation of other nations or otherwise fail to sincerely teach or adhere to the ethics of Jesus as taught in the Sermon on the Mount).

Macmillan backed Syria assassination plot

Newly discovered documents show how in 1957 Harold Macmillan and President Dwight Eisenhower approved a CIA-MI6 plan to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion by Syria's pro-western neighbours, and then to "eliminate" the most influential triumvirate in Damascus.

The plans, frighteningly frank in their discussion, were discovered in the private papers of Duncan Sandys, Mr Macmillan's defence secretary, by Matthew Jones, a reader in international history at Royal Holloway, University of London.

They were requested by the federal court to return government material immediately and that Clinton's minions -- Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills -- should provide detailed descriptions of their use of Mrs. Clinton's private server to conduct government business, according to a non-governmental watchdog that investigates and exposes government and political corruption.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question you need to ask here, is: do you really want a sitting President in office who is completely dismissive of Federal Law?!?!? Whose aids destroy Federal Records under advice of counsel?!?

Do you think such a sitting President would do much to "uphold, protect and defend the Constitution"?!? Were I a betting woman, I would not bet on this happening, at all.

After all, in Clinton's reasoning, laws are only made "for the little people", not for her or her collection of smarmy elites.

And to all those "vagina voters", supporting her campaign, and embracing the "inevitability" of her candidacy and presidency, please remember; to Clinton and her entourage, you are simply "useful idiots", and a means to an end. Just remember what happened to Bill Clinton's four top fundraisers in the first six months of his term in the White House

Will the same bloody offshoring/outsourcing of jobs continue under a dynastic Clinton presidency?!? You betcha. Will most of the legislation passed be great for the corporations which already own her, and generally lousy for We the People?!? Check.

Will there be more wars, ultimately for private profit, in which YOUR KIDS will get maimed for life, or killed outright?!? It is a moral certainty in with a Clinton Presidency.

So if this is what you really want for you and your family, please, by all means, support her, and vote for her.

But I strongly caution you to think, very hard, and very long, about what a second Clinton presidency will mean for this country, and for you personally.

The US Senate’s “DARK Act” Would Cause America’s Crop Fields to Be Saturated with Cancer-Causing Glyphosate (Monsanto Roundup)

A bill pending before the U.S. Senate would not just deny consumers the right to know whether their food contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs), it could also strip states of their right to limit or regulate the use of dangerous herbicide chemicals widely sprayed over fields of GMO crops.

The bill in question, which passed a vote in the House of Representatives of July 22, is formally known as H.R. 1599, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, but has come to be known by organic and natural foods advocates as the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act. That’s because far from ensuring accurate food labeling, the bill is actually designed to prevent the implementation of mandatory GMO labeling laws.

Bans any GMO labeling with teeth

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since our alleged "representatives" in Congress are owned by the companies manufacturing this poison, one has little recourse, except by making it a habit to patronize stores which do not sell GMO products.

Yes, I know it is way more expensive than just capitulating, and buying your food from the markets where you always generally go. However, this is an investment in your life-long health, and the health of your family.

Spying on Americans: Senate Intelligence Authorization Act, Would Allow Arrest of Journalists, Anti-war Activists, Academics and Students

Freedom in America is being systematically destroyed: one police state law at a time – with most people ignorant and/or indifferent about what happening.

Washington’s criminal class is bipartisan – in lockstep against government representing everyone equitably and fairly, serving privileged interests only.

S. Res. 1705: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 compromises free expression and privacy rights already gravely eroded.

If enacted, Section 603 will require online companies to inform Washington of any “actual knowledge” of “facts and circumstances” related to undefined “terrorist activity” – meaning warrantless searches and seizures of personal electronic content will be authorized, potentially subjecting countless numbers of innocent people to unjustifiable scrutiny.

U.S. approves $150 million deal for Bahrain F-16 support

The U.S. government on Friday said it approved a possible sale of $150 million worth of equipment to Bahrain to maintain its fleet of Lockheed Martin Corp F-16 fighter jets, even as two U.S. senators introduced legislation to reinstate an arms sales ban that was lifted by the Obama administration in June.

The Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency, which oversees foreign arms sales, told lawmakers that the Bahraini government had requested equipment for support and communications, ammunition and spare parts valued at $150 million.

Lawmakers have 30 days to block the sale, which the DSCA said was needed to maintain the operational readiness of the aging F-16 fleet of the Royal Bahrain Air Force, which has been used in recent strikes against Islamic State.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

Bahrain's Sunni al-Khalifa monarchy has one of the most rotten human rights records in the Middle East. The monarchy is, if you will, our thug in the region, and the US government is loathe to take its business elsewhere, because Bahrain is home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet.

Peaceful protests in support of a constitutional monarchy have been met with violent suppression, torture, and even arrests, and jail time, for first responders treating the wounded protesters.

So far, the protests have been peaceful; but US policy makers are completely tone-deaf, and blind, if they expect, with all the turmoil in the region, that this will remain the case. The late President Kennedy said it best; "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

And at the point where such upheaval may come to Bahrain, look for its government to become one of the most vitriolically anti-American countries in the region, if not the world, for all the evil the US government has enabled in Bahrain.

Anti-War Donors Pledge To Withhold $8.3 Million In Potential Donations From Schumer, Iran Deal Opponents

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) preserved support from his hawkish pro-Israel base with his promise to vote down the Iran nuclear deal on Thursday night -- but will now have to answer to a group of anti-war liberal advocacy organizations who claim that Schumer’s opposition to the diplomatic accord with Iran renders him unfit for the role of the party’s leader in the Senate.

In less than 24 hours since Schumer’s announcement, 17,636 members of MoveOn, a progressive advocacy group, have committed to withhold $8.3 million they would have contributed to Schumer and other Democrats who oppose the Iran deal, the group told The Huffington Post on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sure that Israel will pony up these funds and make up for the shortfall.

There are many things about which I disagree intensely with this Administration; the Iran deal is not one of them.

Schumer, and those who opposed this deal in Congress, should be made to register as agents of a foreign government, period, end of discussion, and that country is Israel.

They are no longer fit to lead or serve in the US, because they no longer represent their alleged constituents at all, and have become thoroughly useless to the American people.

GOP leaders say erratic attacks hurt Trump, but he vows to fight and win

Republican leaders who have watched Donald Trump’s summer surge with alarm now believe that his presidential candidacy has been contained and may begin to collapse because of his repeated attacks on a Fox News Channel star and his refusal to pledge his loyalty to the eventual GOP nominee.

Fearful that the billionaire’s inflammatory rhetoric has inflicted serious damage to the GOP brand, party leaders hope to pivot away from the Trump sideshow and toward a more serious discussion among a deep field of governors, senators and other candidates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the GOP leadership: short of an assassination (and we all know that such things have been "engineered", in American politics over time), Mr. Trump is not going anywhere.

What frightens all of you is how he has tapped in to the free floating anxiety of Americans who are exhausted of the games, angry about the reality of outsourced/offshored jobs, frustrated with the sorry state of education in this country, and angry that people who have not earned the right to be in this country are treated better, many times, by this administration, than actual citizens of this country.

They want this to stop.

THINK MANDATORY VACCINATIONS IS 'FOR THE KIDS' AND ABOUT 'SAFETY'? HERE'S A LIST OF CA STATE 'REPRESENTATIVES' AND HOW MUCH MONEY THEY WERE 'DONATED' TO BY BIG PHARMA CORPORATIONS

SB277 passed. And some political campaigns got richer and more powerful in the mean time. But let’s start with the spin factory. (this disgust me)

(via sacbee) “We aren’t pushing this bill behind the scenes,” said Priscilla VanderVeer, the senior director for communications for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, known as PhRMA, the industry’s main trade group. The group has no taken no position on SB 277, although the group has long backed vaccinations as sound public health policy, she said.
This statement from VanderVeer is absolutely absurd and panders to the lowest denominations of our society’s intelligence. Who would believe this stuff? This can’t be real life.

The bloodshed began on Friday with a truck bomb that exploded in a heavily populated district of the capital and ended with an hours-long battle at a base used by U.S. special forces. It became the deadliest day in Kabul for years.

The Islamist insurgents claimed responsibility for both the police academy attack and the battle at the U.S. special forces base, though not for the truck bomb.

The violence was a stark reminder of the difficulty of reviving a stalled peace process, conveying a no-compromise message from the Taliban following last week's revelation of Mullah Mohammad Omar's death and a dispute over the leadership of the insurgency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Ruttig and Mr. Haysom, the answer is very starkly simple; the Afghanis want their country back, after 14 years of invasion and occupation.

They are quite tired, thank you very much, of the levels of death, poverty, and devastation wrought by the US and NATO. The alleged "reconstruction" of the country has been largely a joke, where huge companies, many hired at the behest of Cheney, Bush, and Rumsfeld, have created shoddy, unworkable buildings which collapsed when you looked at them too hard.

The Afghanis want the Americans and NATO out of the country, and right the hell now. That it should be such a bloody mystery to you both bespeaks a level of intellectual laziness and and moral turpitude, that I really do not know where to start.

Claim: Massive no-depth, “never-ending hole”, taken over by military on man’s property

“Grapes Versus Eggs”: Sonoma County’s Goliath vs. David Story

Selling eggs directly to people for years, Wise Acre owners Bryan Boyd and Raina Brolan were forced to shut down their operation by the winery that owns the road to the stand. A growing backlash against the wine industry erupted on YELP’s social media platform, supporting the food farmers. Many criticisms of the winery were posted online at the PD’s website; the most frequent description of the winery was “bully.”

Why did the Times publish an article about a Novorossia dirty bomb?

News from The Times that Donetsk militia is engaged in the creation of a "dirty bomb" in cooperation with Russian scientists is not good.

I would not hurry to treat it as a typical nonsense, which is constantly written about Donbass.

Of course, it is impossible to seriously discuss this story in the way its portrayed in the West.

But the fact is that when someone wants to commit a crime — he must first create an alibi. Or, in our case, to create the background information that would blame the enemy.

The amusement park where alligators are the only guests: Ten years after Hurricane Katrina, Six Flags New Orleans stands empty and abandoned

The flood waters of Hurricane Katrina have receded in the ten years since the deadly storm made landfall - but some areas of Louisiana are still unable to return to the way things were before.

They include the Six Flags amusement park near New Orleans, which did not have water pumped out until a month after the 2005 hurricane.

One decade on, its abandoned roller coasters and attractions create an eerie scene.

Photographer Seph Lawless, who has previously taken pictures of America's abandoned shopping malls, documented the former Six Flags in a series of new snaps.

WMD Britain: How MoD scientists tested chemical weapons including anthrax and the PLAGUE on soldiers and members of the public - and even released dangerous bacteria on the Tube

The gruesome reality of chemical experiments carried out by the Ministry of Defence at a controversial 'military science park' over the course of 50 years has been revealed.

Teenager soldiers and servicemen unwittingly volunteered to be human 'guinea pigs' for a series of experiments at Porton Down, in Wiltshire, in the hope of a bit of extra cash.

But the unsuspecting volunteers were exposed to Sarin gas, anthrax and even the Black Death, a new book has revealed.

One victim was left convulsing with ‘terrible stuff coming out of his mouth like frogspawn’; another teenage serviceman believed he had a four-hour conversation with a school-friend who had died years before, after being injected with a brain-incapacitating drug.

Incredibly, thousands of members of the British public were also unknowingly exposed by government scientists who released spores of a 'plague-like' bacteria on the London Underground in 1963.

The coming wave of technological breakthroughs endangers up to 47% of total employment in the US

It’s a booming time to be a truck driver. According to data NPR compiled from the US Census Bureau, truck driving is currently the most popular job in 29 states.
It’s not that truck driving is a particularly sought after career path, however. Rather, it is simply one that is available and pays decently. Unlike a plethora of other jobs that have declined in recent years, truck driving has remained immune to the forces that have elbowed out different lines of work. In the past decades, computers, cash machines and self-serve pumps have largely replaced secretaries, bank tellers and gas station attendants, respectively. Door-to-door deliveries, on the other hand, cannot be outsourced to another country, while long haul driving has yet to be automated.

US’s Saudi Oil Deal from Win-Win to Mega-Lose

By F. William Engdahl

Who would’ve thought it would come to this? Certainly not the Obama Administration, and their brilliant geo-political think-tank neo-conservative strategists. John Kerry’s brilliant “win-win” proposal of last September during his September 11 Jeddah meeting with ailing Saudi King Abdullah was simple: Do a rerun of the highly successful State Department-Saudi deal in 1986 when Washington persuaded the Saudis to flood the world market at a time of over-supply in order to collapse oil prices worldwide, a kind of “oil shock in reverse.” In 1986 was successful in helping to break the back of a faltering Soviet Union highly dependent on dollar oil export revenues for maintaining its grip on power.

So, though it was not made public, Kerry and Abdullah agreed on September 11, 2014 that the Saudis would use their oil muscle to bring Putin’s Russia to their knees today...

Hillary Clinton causing climate change by flying around in a fuel-guzzling PRIVATE JET?

If Hillary Clinton gets her way through new carbon taxes, she'll be able to fly around in private jets, polluting the world without limit while making it harder for average Americans to keep gas in their cars and their homes heated.

Hypocritically, one of Clinton's jet trips pumps out more carbon dioxide than the average American uses during an entire year. Maybe she should listen to the words of her own campaign.

Vaccine industry social influence document reveals attempted bribery of 'key social influencers' such as Disney / Marvel, ESPN, Oprah and a CNN reporter

The document is entitled Roadmap for Action to Reach the Healthy People 2020 Goals for Adult Vaccination. It is dated November, 2013, meaning that almost everything mentioned here has already been implemented as we've seen with the Disneyland measles false flag outbreak, the push for SB 277 in California and the insertion of pro-vaccine propaganda into Netflix programs.

The document openly admits that the vaccine industry pays people to exert social influence calling for increased sales of lucrative vaccines.

Vaccine industry specifically names ESPN, Disney, Oprah Winfrey, Sanjay Gupta and others

The document calls for the vaccine industry to, "Identify influential spokespersons from multiple sectors (e.g., business, sports, music) to reach each identified target population."

Food seizures begin: Venezuela farmers ordered to turn over their food to the government

As Venezuela's economy continues to worsen -- its currency having entered "free fall mode," according to the Financial Times -- the desperate Maduro government has taken the extreme measure of nationalizing the nation's food industry.

Venezuelan farmers and food producers are now required to sell anywhere from 30 percent to 100 percent of their products to state-owned stores. The order covers staple foods such as rice, milk, oil, sugar and flour.

Shortages and long lines in stores have become common since Venezuela's economy began sliding into inflation -- a situation that placed them at the top of the list in the world for inflation in 2014. The official inflation rate was 65 percent last year, and in the last month the currency has lost another 43 percent of its value.

Carphone Warehouse coughs to MONSTER data breach – 2.4 MEELLION Brits at risk

Carphone Warehouse has taken three days to go public about a serious data breach affecting nearly 2.5 million customers – with the confession that up to 90,000 subscribers may have had their credit card info ransacked.

The company said on Saturday afternoon that it had first discovered its systems had been violated by a "sophisticated cyber-attack" on 5 August.

Encrypted credit card data of up to 90,000 customers may have been lifted by malefactors, it added.

Carphone Warehouse said its websites OneStopPhoneShop.com, e2save.com and Mobiles.co.uk had been affected by the attack. Those sites provide services for customers at iD Mobile, TalkTalk Mobile, Talk Mobile and an undisclosed number of Carphone Warehouse customers.

Internet search engines may be influencing elections

Biased search results increased the number of undecided voters choosing the favored candidate by 48% compared with a control group that saw an equal mix of both candidates throughout the list. Very few subjects noticed they were being manipulated, but those who did were actually more likely to vote in line with the biased results. “We expect the search engine to be making wise choices,” Epstein says. “What they’re saying is, ‘Well yes, I see the bias and that’s telling me … the search engine is doing its job.’”

...

“In a two-person race, a candidate can only count on getting half of the uncommitted votes, which is worthless. With the help of biased search rankings, a candidate might be able to get 90% of the uncommitted votes [in select demographics],” Epstein explains.

...

Presumably Google isn’t intentionally tweaking its algorithms to favor certain presidential candidates, but Epstein says it would extremely difficult to tell if it were.

Burning churches legitimate under Jewish law

Commentators on modern Jewish history are often puzzled by the animosity of secular Jews toward gentiles. Particularly puzzling is the scale of Jewish ‘revolutionary’ violence towards Christianity and churches in particular. It is no secret that Bolshevism set many churches ablaze. The International Brigade followed a similar pattern in Spain (1936). It is an established fact that Yiddish was the lingua franca of the International Brigade that was formed following a tidal wave of Church burning by the Republicans. That act of barbarism didn’t seem to deter the salt of the Jewish Left who rushed to liberate Spain in the name of the ‘International’. And yet, historically, this kind of barbaric act was never associated with rabbinical Judaism.

Plotnitskiy: Kiev will have to negotiate with the Donbas coal deliveries

Ukraine will not be able to find an alternative to coal from the Donets Basin, as coal from South Africa and Australia for the Ukrainian thermal power plants is not suitable for specifications.
Kiev will have to negotiate with the Donbas coal deliveries, and Kiev was seeking contact with the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republic, said Igor Plotnitskiy.
Ukraine due to a conflict in the Donbass lost the majority of mines. On the territory of Donbass remained the most profitable mines, and enterprises remaining under the control of the authorities of Ukraine, unprofitable mined coal gas. Many of these enterprises are unprofitable, the government has no money to maintain them, so they planned a phased closure. Due to the shortage of coal Ukraine has to import it. Kiev in preparation for the heating season is going to buy coal from all possible suppliers.

South Ossetian president says Tskhinval remembers how Russia saved it in 2008

Georgia assault on South Ossetia was huge violation of international law –
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who was president in August 2008, when Georgian troops began shelling the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinval, has tweeted that Russia’s response to Tbilisi aggression was sufficiently rigorous.
“It’s seven years since Georgian aggression against South Ossetia. During the night of August 8, 2008, Georgian troops deployed heavy artillery, tanks, aviation and inflicted a terrible strike on houses, hospitals and schools in Tskhinval. Thousands were killed and wounded in a matter of hours. Russian peacekeepers, acting in full accordance with the UN mandate to maintain peace, also died,” wrote Medvedev.
Russia’s task was to stop the bloodshed and prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, the PM added. “Today we are helping to preserve peace in Abkhazia and South Ossetia,” Medvedev wrote. http://www.rt.com/news/line/

International Courts and the Mystery of the Malaysian Airliner

People are not equal in death, either. Some deaths are more newsworthy than others. The media and politicians love spectacular acts of terror, fires, disaster, the death of the wealthy and privileged, a death conducive to a cause. Such is the death of 300 passengers and crew of the Malaysian airliner flight 17 in the crash in Donbass, near Russian-Ukrainian border. Their deaths, regrettable as they were, are deemed to be of much greater importance, or at least newsworthiness than those of some ten thousand local people killed by the indiscriminate shelling of Donbass towns by Kiev regime troops, or that of a million Arabs. It is conducive to the cause of pushing Russia into a corner.

House Members In Israel for Obama-Bashing

Should Congress prevail in undermining “this strong, principled policy diplomacy”, we would have reached a shameful moment in U.S. foreign policy.

While President Barack Obama was speaking about the people’s business, and his Kennedy-like preference for diplomacy over war, freshman members of the U.S. House of Representatives were either 5,000 plus miles away in Israel, or preparing to go there to be feted and educated by a foreign power which opposes the nuclear agreement the U.S. has reached with Iran and major European powers.

Democratic freshman congress members who may or may not have heard the Obama speech, are traveling in Israel (all expenses paid) courtesy of an educational nonprofit “affiliated with” the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the American Israel Education Foundation, AIPAC’s charitable arm.

What “affiliated with” means is that AIPAC runs the trip while its “education foundation” pays the bills.

Jeb Bush called Trump an ‘a—hole’

Jeb Bush let insiders know what he really thinks of Donald Trump in a private meeting with a donor — calling the mouthy mogul an “a–hole,” among other insults, according to a report Thursday.

“Seriously, what’s this guy’s problem?” Bush angrily asked the donor, according to Politico, which cited several sources close to the former Florida governor.

And Bush continued his verbal assault on the real-estate titan — who had angered his family and especially his Mexican-born wife by calling Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists — by describing him as a “buffoon,” a “clown” and, yes, an “a-?-hole.”

Bush, cast as an early front-runner, was as surprised as anybody when Trump entered the presidential race in June.

Forget Iran Bibi Just Wants to Humiliate Obama on His Own Turf

In any event, the prolonged confrontation between Obama and Netanyahu over the Iran agreement took a quantum leap this week. Only God knows how Israel could possibly emerge well from this battle, regardless of whether the accord is approved by Congress. Netanyahu was asked about what comes next, after Congress either supports the deal, or votes against it with a majority large enough to supersede a presidential veto. The prime minister did not provide a satisfactory answer. The questioner came away with the impression that he is waging a battle for its own sake, for the satisfaction of humiliating the president. He longs to defeat Obama on the latter’s home turf.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a battle over who runs the United States, Netanyahu or Obama. The rest of the world will not abide by what Congress decides on the deal. They are already in Tehran signing contracts! This is a dick-measuring contest between Bibi and Barack. Netanyahu is out to prove that Israel still rules the United States, which is why the full-court press continues!

Donald Trump Schools Whiny Brit - "Crimea is Your Problem, Not Ours"

Washington (CNN) Republican frontrunner Donald Trump said Friday that the U.S. should only step in on Crimea if European countries ask for help and, until then, it remains “Europe’s problem.”

“Let me explain first of all — this is Europe’s problem much more than ours, OK?” Trump told CNN during a trip to Scotland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Technically, Trump is wrong, possibly because as an outsider, he is unaware that the crisis in Crimea was indeed started by the covert US overthrow of Ukraine's legitimate government in January 2014 and the installation of a pro-western Junta, which triggered Crimea's secession and the civil war with Lugansk and Donetsk.

Hillary Clinton’s $2 Billion Money Man

Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, the man behind what has been predicted to grow to a $2 billion operation, is serious, soft-spoken, unflappable, and fiercely loyal to his boss.

He is never quoted in the press. He doesn’t participate in profiles, won’t be interviewed, and doesn’t head to cable TV to defend Hillary Clinton against the Republican onslaught. In a political-media sphere in which contact with the Clintons can be a golden ticket to every green room of your dreams, Cheng is determined to be unseen and unheard from.

But, if some Republican operatives have their way, he’s about to become the face of Clintonian corruption.

The president accused Aipac of spending millions of dollars in advertising against the deal and spreading false claims about it, people in the meeting recalled.

So Mr. Obama told the Aipac leaders that he intended to hit back hard.
