The Syrian Army has liberated new quarters of Deir ez-Zor from Daesh terrorists. During the operation the army found large warehouses with a huge number of lethal weapons. The Syrian military source told Sputnik Arabic what exactly these warehouses were storing.

According to the Syrian military source there were a lot of US-made weapons and military equipment of Western European and Israeli production. Apart from M-16 automatic rifles there were TOW anti-tank missile systems and 155 mm US field guns.

“There were also Hummers, which were either used to transport people or were stuffed with bombs inside ready to explode. Israeli intelligence reconnaissance aircraft and a modern Israeli protective suit for conducting sapper work have also been found,” the source told Sputnik Arabic.

The Wurth family were shocked to receive an email from the managing agent of their property, stating that a complaint had been made “that at 5.30am this morning a baby was crying and stamping and then further noise starting again at 6.45am, which woke one of the other tenants in the property.”

“We have subsequently liaised with your landlord and are instructed that we are to agree arrangements with you to vacate the property as soon as possible. Please ensure to keep all movement and noise to a minimum,” the agent added.

Monitoring equipment confirmed that all of the designated targets were hit," the Defense Ministry said.

Roy Moore’s lawyer says that the bizarre yearbook inscription is forged – here’s why

“And then finally, after Judge Moore’s signature it has the initials capital D period, A period,” he continued. “Remember when I told you about that ’99 divorce action? Judge Moore looked at that “D.A.” after his signature which they allege was because he was the district attorney, well he wasn’t, he was the assistant district attorney.”

“But Judge Moore says he can’t ever remember signing his name with “D.A.” after it, but he had seen it before,” he explained. “You know where he had seen it? When he was on the bench, his assistant, whose initials are capital D period, A period, Delber Adams, would stamp his signature on documents and then put capital D period, A period. That’s exactly how the signature appears on the divorce decree that Judge Moore signed, dismissing the divorce action with Ms. Nelson.”

Western MSM ‘shocked’ at 60,000-strong nationalist march in Warsaw – but are they really?

The mainstream media coverage of the annual nationalist march in Poland was far more critical this year than on previous occasions. Considering how similar events were previously covered, analysts wonder if the change results from Brussels’s feud with Warsaw.

Something terrible happened last Saturday in Poland. A crowd of 60,000 neo-Nazis, fascists, white supremacists, far-right nationalists, anti-Semites and religious fanatics marched in the streets of the capital Warsaw in the biggest display of bigotry and hatred the world has seen in years. And like-minded radicals from all around Europe sent their delegations to the rally. And the Polish government not only failed to condemn this march of the right, but dared to call the event “beautiful.” The terror!

OSCE condemns labeling media as 'foreign agents' – but only after Russia did it

The OSCE has finally paid attention to the issue of media outlets being labeled “foreign agents” and condemned this practice. The organization only took notice after Moscow's retaliatory move to RT being targeted in the US.

“Branding media entities as ‘foreign agents’ is a dangerous practice, as it can narrow the space for freedom of the media,” said Harlem Desir, Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's (OSCE) Representative on Freedom of the Media, in a statement on Thursday. The official then expressed his “concern” about measures taken by the US and Russia “requiring the media entities from other countries to register themselves as ‘foreign agents.’”

US lifts ban on import of 'elephant trophies' from Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe's elephants are listed as "threatened" under the US Endangered Species Act (ESA).

The service justified the change by saying the ban, imposed under former president Barack Obama, was based on limited information available at the time.

The Justice Department has a duty to consider a probe of the Uranium One sale

If crimes were committed to further Russia’s nuclear goals here, Americans need to know. And if Team Obama suspected that but still OK’d the Uranium One sale to a Russian firm, Americans deserve an explanation of that, too.

Yet Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ orders to prosecutors merely to see if a probe — perhaps headed by a special counsel — is warranted has critics in a lather.

No surprise there: The left fears a probe into Team Obama and the Clinton Foundation could taint Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, even if it turned up no damaging evidence. Worse, it could draw attention from the FBI investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion by President Trump’s campaign.

Zionism’s calm destruction of Palestine

Two stories reported by Haaretz on Wednesday underscore the unchanging goal of Zionism: the destruction of the Palestinians as a people and as viable communities, and the theft of their land for exclusively Jewish colonial settlement.

The first story reports on declassified minutes of cabinet meetings in the months after the 1967 war, when Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as well as Syria’s Golan Heights and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

Israeli leaders were pondering how to deal with the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians newly under military occupation. It was already clear that the Israelis wanted the land but not the people who lived on it.

One of the “solutions” offered by Levi Eshkol, then Israel’s prime minister, was, effectively, to expel them.

Another preinstalled app found on OnePlus that could collect user data

A couple of days ago it was reported that an IT security researcher Robert Baptiste who goes by the handle of Elliot Alderson on Twitter had discovered a pre-installed backdoor application called “EngineerMode” on OnePlus smartphones including its 5, 3, 3T models and OxygenOS for OnePlus 1.

Now, the same researcher has found another preinstalled app in OnePlus devices sold to customers around the world. Dubbed OnePlusLogKit by researchers, the app runs with system privileges and has access to user’s GPS logs, WiFI data, Bluetooth, NFC, photos, videos, and list of the running processes – All that without the user’s permission or knowledge.

This means while EngineerMode allowed an attacker to root the device; OnePlusLogKit lets attackers access personal data of OnePlus users. However, in this case, an attacker has to have physical access to the targeted device and then dial *#800# – click on “Get Wireless log.”

Secret Informant in Fear for His Life After Jeff Sessions’ DOJ Leaks His Name One Week Before Testifying Against Clinton Crime Family

On the Sean Hannity Show it was reported that the Sessions DOJ told Reuters the man’s name who has information on the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One is William D. Campbell.

Campbell he worked as a consultant for a Russian firm. According to reporter John Solomon the informant is a consultant and his evidence will show Russian agents with suitcases of cash ready to bribe the Clintons for US uranium.

Judicial Watch: New Clinton Classified Emails Discovered

Judicial Watch today released 109 pages of new Hillary Clinton emails from her tenure as secretary of state. The documents include two email exchanges classified confidential and a 2011 exchange with Sid Blumenthal about “serious trouble for the Libyan rebels.”

The newly-produced emails were part of 72,000 pages of documents the FBI recovered last year in its investigation into Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. The records include emails Hillary Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose.

Two heavily redacted emails marked Classified Confidential included a November 2011 exchange under the Subject: “Egyptian MFA on Hamas-PLO talks,” and a June 28, 2011 email from Clinton to Abedin in which Clinton writes “I have now promised the Kuwaiti PM 3 times that I will deliver an address at the Oxford Islamic Center.

Although The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Department of the Treasury has apparently declared in an statement that the NGOs can render services to Iran in regard to rescue operation activities, as well as allowing donations to the country to relieve the sufferings of those affected by natural disasters, transfer of cash has been subject to special circumstances which permits a maximum 500,000 dollars to be transferred over the course of 12 months.

The statement requires the existence of special circumstances for the dispatch of cash even to non-commercial individuals or to a relative. However it is not yet clear how one can prove the special situation of the circumstances.

Despite all the difficulties, the Iranians living in the US are doing their best to devise innovative solutions to send their humanitarian supplies to the quake-hit areas in western Iran.

For the time being, Russia's three major TV channels - Channel One, Rossiya-1 (part of VGTRK) and Match TV (part of Gazprom Media) plan to broadcast Winter Olympics from South Korea. Yet, if the Russian national team is excluded from the Games, Channel One and Rossiya-1 will most likely refuse to broadcast the Olympics. Naturally, Russian people watch Olympic Games to support Russian athletes in the first place. If no Russian athletes take part in the Games, the audience of the major sports event of this winter will decease sharply, representatives of the above-mentioned channels say. It makes no sense for major channels to pay millions of dollars for the rights to broadcast the Games, if they make no money from advertising because of low ratings. Representatives of the VGTRK tele and radio corporation confirmed that the company would no be broadcasting the Winter Olympics if Russian athletes are suspended from the Games in South Korea...

Radical faction in the Ukraine Rada wants Ukraine out of Minsk talks

Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada from the faction of the radical party of Lyashko are preparing an appeal to President Poroshenko about getting Ukraine out of the Minsk negotiations on the settlement of the conflict in the Donbass. Deputy Ihor Mosiychuk from the radical party spoke about this on the air of the channel "112 Ukraine." "The faction will appeal to the president with a proposal to get out of participating in the so-called Minsk process." The negotiations in Minsk should be stopped because Belarus unequivocally took the side of the aggressor country, it is not a neutral country, and it is impossible to negotiate on its territory. Switzerland would be an intermediary and a peacemaker," said Mosiychuk. According to him, Ukraine is not obliged to implement the Minsk agreements, and the political process in the Donbass can be launched only after full "deseparatization"...

Putin Isn’t Interested in Helping America

Toward the end of his twelve-day trip to Asia, President Trump tweeted, “When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There [sic] always playing politics — bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!”

Trump has a point. Russia can, in theory, “greatly help.” But it probably won’t, at least not “greatly.” It won’t help because Vladimir Putin and his regime don’t think helping America is in their national interest.

Putin, a former ghoul of the KGB, subscribes to a theory of statecraft with deep roots in both Russian and Soviet history.

Let’s Stop Glorifying War

When’s the last time our media covered war honestly? When’s the last time you saw combat footage of American troops under fire, or of American troops killing others in the name of keeping us safe from enemies? When was the last time you saw an American soldier panicking, firing wildly, perhaps killing members of his own unit (fratricide) or innocent civilians caught in the crossfire of war? Maybe in the 1960s during coverage of the Vietnam War?

War is not glorious. It may feature noble deeds and remarkable sacrifices, but it also features brutality and many other bloody realities. War breaks men (and women) down. It does so because war is unnatural. Yes, war is many things, but it most certainly is about killing. Occasionally, the killing is even necessary. (Just ask those enslaved by the Nazis or the Japanese whether they greeted Allied troops as liberators.)

Ukraine to pay US $1.4 billion to become a "nuclear dump"

Outside Kiev, they have begun to build a repository for used nuclear fuel, in order to abandon the apparently expensive Russian waste services. The authorities assure that it does not carry a threat to people, but local residents and environmentalists are seriously concerned. Not far from Kiev, in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, the construction of a centralized storage of used nuclear fuel has begun. The construction site is located between the former villages of Staraya Krasni?a, Buryakivka, Chistogalovka and Stechanka of the Kiev region. As reported in the Ministry of Energy, the cost of construction will cost Ukraine $ 1.4 billion. The facility will be a platform which will build concrete containers of nuclear waste. The full construction is planned to be erected within 16.5 years in 15 stages.

A leak in the Keystone Pipeline released at least 210,000 gallons of oil, and the pipeline has since been shut off. The leak is now covered, according to TransCanada, the sole owner of the pipeline.
The leak occurred on Thursday morning in an agricultural area in Marshall County, South Dakota. The oil has not entered any waterways or water systems, KSFY reported.

Crews are now working to clean up the leak, and an emergency response plan has been activated to get more staff and contractors to the site.

State Department: Russia - a threat from the Baltic to the Black Sea

The US considers Russia "a threat from the Baltic to the Black Sea." This was stated by adviser to the Secretary of State, Director for Political Planning at the State Department, Brian Hook. "Russia does not have an ideological unity that would guide its actions. But Russia is nevertheless a serious opponent. There is a resemblance to the threat that we encountered during the Cold War. As in the past, the threat comes from the Baltic to the Black Sea," he stated. He stressed that Russia "has shown the ability to conduct and prepare large-scale exercises, such as the recent" West-2017" exercises. "The conventional threat is real... Russia is modernizing the army and the nuclear arsenal. It has developed a cruise missile capable of carrying nuclear weapons, clearly violating the INF Treaty (intermediate range nuclear forces)," the diplomat concluded.

Deception and Ruses Fill the Toolkit of Investigators Used by Weinstein

Law firms routinely use private investigators to collect information to help them argue civil and criminal cases in and out of court. These investigators sometimes use deception and elaborate ruses to root out secrets or private information. Black Cube’s work for Mr. Weinstein, and the cinematic scenarios it created with its fabricated job interviews in London, provides a rare look at the lengths some firms will go to, using tradecraft that pushes the boundaries.

'Hostility Between US and Russia Won't End Until Trump Leaves Office' - Sputnik

Russia's State Duma has adopted in the third and final reading an amendment that allows it to mark media outlets funded by foreign countries as foreign agents, in response to US actions. Radio Sputnik has discussed the issue with Stephen Ebert, an independent political analyst.
Sputnik: Is there any likelihood that the US will change its hostile policy towards the Russian media and get a message that their step was wrong?

Stephen Ebert: I actually do not see that in the near future. I think at this point we have come across a bridge. I personally look at requirements depending on what the word “foreign agent” means, but I don’t find it terribly unusual. Having said that, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. So I take it from a broader picture, I see this globally. Countries have the right to track or keep track of foreign [media]. And Russia is a foreign country.

I don’t necessarily find it that horrible as long as we all play by the same rules, which to me is what Russia is now doing.

And I would say this: As long as Trump is in office I guarantee you that any of that hostility, it just won’t end.>>>

Nothing Patriotic or Conservative About Our Bloated Defense Budget

Rep. John J. Duncan, Jr. Posted on November 16, 2017
***
I opposed almost all the major initiatives of the Obama administration. But it was false to say that the Defense Department was "depleted" or "eviscerated" during those years, or that now we must "rebuild the military."

In fact, public relations experts in future years should conduct studies about how the Defense Department has been able to convince the public it has been cut when it is getting more money than ever.

Defense Department appropriations have more than doubled since 2000. In addition, the Department has gotten extra billions in several supplemental or emergency appropriation bills.
***
Since now less than one percent of the people serve in the military, it may be that many people who never served feel, perhaps even subconsciously, that they must bend over backwards to show their patriotism.

However, it is not unpatriotic to oppose wasteful defense spending or very unnecessary permanent, forever wars.

Why Are We Shouldering Our Rich Allies' Defense?

U.S. friends in Europe and Asia can be their own first responders.

The Pentagon’s fiscal year (FY) 2018 budget request is $639.1 billion—$574.5 billion in base funding plus another $64.6 billion for overseas contingency operations, i.e., the ongoing wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere. That represents a $52.4 billion (9 percent) increase over FY 2017. Yet some lawmakers—such as Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX)—think we should spend even more. The problem is that their position depends on accepting our current strategy, which is a relic of the Cold War, not a forward-looking strategic vision for 21st century challenges.

It’s time for a robust debate about whether we need to spend hundreds of billions more U.S. taxpayer dollars to dominate an increasingly complex globe—or whether we should instead pursue a more realistic (and affordable) foreign policy that prioritizes U.S. security and increases burden sharing with our wealthy allies to protect our shared interests.

To provide some perspective, in constant FY 2018 dollars, current defense spending exceeds peak spending during the Reagan era, which was $609.6 billion—and has not been re-booted to the realities of the post-Cold War world.

The real reason the U.S. is spending more than $600 billion on defense is not to defend the American homeland against direct attack—which should be the primary mission of the U.S. military—but to defend other countries around the world, as we did during the Cold War.

The Pentagon Has Avoided Audit for 27 Years

Not sure where your tax dollars are going? Nobody really is.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Representatives passed a Pentagon budget that called for $700 billion in defense spending—more than what even the Trump administration had asked for, and tens of billions more than the current defense spending caps. To achieve this budget, which is expected to sail through the Senate after the Thanksgiving break, Congress will have to raise the caps set into place during the Budget Control Act. But if there is a will—which there certainly is, considering the powerful defense industry lobby, coupled with members’ own special interests for their districts—there is a way.

But how indeed does this money get spent? An open secret in Washington is that the Pentagon, by far the largest if not most byzantine agency in the federal government, has never been audited>>>

SWEDEN RULES OUT MAPPING RAPISTS’ ETHNICITY

Amid a hot national debate, Swedish Justice Minister Morgan Johansson has firmly ruled out the much-debated idea of publishing statistics on the nationality of sex offenders. He argued against “blaming it on immigrants,” when perpetrators “in fact” were men. Following the publication of a private report suggesting immigrants’ overrepresentation in rape cases, Sweden’s Conservative Party presented the Crime Prevention Council (Brå) with a proposal to map out the ethnicity of rapists in a comprehensive survey in order to shed more light on this sensitive issue. The last time a similar investigation was made in 2005. “We want a new comprehensive mapping of sexual offenses. Who is the perpetrator and who is the victim? It’s important to be able to draw conclusions on preventive work,” Conservative spokesman Tomas Tobé said, as quoted by Swedish national broadcaster SVT. According to Tobé, the mapping should specifically include the rapist’s background and ethnicity.

REFLECTING ON THE OUTWARD VOICE OF RUSSIA

For a very long time we had the same few outlets setting the news narrative about the entire world, for the entire world. They had the same people telling the same stories, often casting aside important issues and voices. But we know that the world is more diverse, more complicated than that, and that people across the globe have been hungry, for a long time, for a news source that truly reflects this diversity of stories and opinions. This is the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of RT finding its space in a crowded news universe: by reporting on what the mainstream media ignores. Our goal has never been to diminish anything or anyone else. Our mission isn’t to shout down other news sources – including those we consider ‘mainstream media’. Yet we do aspire to providing greater diversity in news at large, to serve the audiences by helping them break out of the mainstream media echo chamber. And yes, it is an echo-chamber.

THERESA MAY JUMPS THE RUSSIA BASHING BAND WAGON, AGAIN…

Once the UK Conservative Party lost its majority in the House of Commons as the result of the recent parliamentary elections, the fact that can be largely attributed to a string of failed policies pursued by the Conservative government, the Labour Party demanded the sitting Prime Minister Theresa May to resign. Ever since then the head of the British government has been operating in a sort of a panic mode. Most British media sources agree that Prime Minister Teresa May will be forced to leave her post no later than by the summer of 2019, while citing various sources within the parliament. To somehow escape the shameful image of a PM “that is just about to be removed”, in her response to the former chairman of the Conservative Party, Grant Shapps, announced that she had no plans to step down...

MAGNITSKY ACT MASTERMIND SEEKS TO STOP CYPRUS FROM REVEALING HIS OFFSHORE ASSETS TO RUSSIA

A group of MEPs have urged Cyprian authorities not to cooperate with Russia on an inquiry against the man behind the Magnitsky Act, William Browder. Now, a Russian lawyer claims that Browder himself arranged this petition to hide data on his operations. Browder, a US-born British investor and the founder of Hermitage Capital Management, fears that his fraudulent investment schemes involving offshore assets in Cyprus would be revealed to European authorities if Cyprus continues to cooperate with Moscow on its probe against him, Natalya Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer who conducted her own investigation into Browder’s operations, told RT. She added that Browder is actively trying to paint the investigation against him as politically motivated. “He [Browder] is afraid of the Russian probe that has conclusive evidence of his financial crimes and proof that his theory of Magnitsky’s death is an absolute fake. That’s why Browder is ready to stage any provocation,” Veselnitskaya said.

EU PARLIAMENT MAY IMPOSE ANTI-POLISH SANCTIONS

The EU parliament has adopted a resolution that provides for the launch of a mechanism for the application of sanctions by the European Union against Poland. According to the statement, members of the European Parliament believe that the situation in Poland represents a “clear risk of a serious breach” of European values, including the rule of law, enshrined in the EU Treaty. While Article 7.1 of the Treaty on the European Union stipulates the possibility of triggering the preventive mechanism if the majority of four fifths of the European Council members determine that there is a violation of common values, the parliament has decided by 438 votes to 152 with 71 abstentions to prepare a formal request that the Council activate it. According to the EU parliament’s press release, if the risk still persists and the Polish authorities refuse to comply with the EU’s recommendations, the procedure might even lead to the suspension of Poland’s voting rights within the Council.

EU CREATES NEW DEFENSE PACT TO REDUCE DEPENDENCE ON US

The EU on Nov.13 officially launched a new era in defense cooperation with a program of joint military investment in equipment, research and development, known as permanent structured cooperation, or PESCO. Foreign and defense ministers gathered at a signing ceremony in Brussels to represent 23 EU governments joining the pact, which is to become legally binding when signed by heads of state at EU summit in mid-December. With so many ministers signing, approval seems a given. From now on, the EU will have a more coherent role in tackling international crises, while reducing the reliance on the United States. The UK, which is scheduled to leave the EU in 2019, is not part of PESCO. Until Brexit, London had opposed the idea of European Defense Union or European Army, saying it would undermine NATO and the UK alliance with the US. Denmark, which has a special opt-out status, is not expected to participate. Ireland, Portugal and Malta are still undecided whether or not to join.

But there is a deeper reason. This is what they tried on Donald Trump – exact same gig – and it nearly worked. They nearly drove him out of the Presidential contest.

Why this Oregon teen is facing federal drug charges for a gram of pot

Devontre Thomas is likely facing federal charges because the alleged possession took place at the Chemawa Indian School, which is run by the federal Bureau of Indian Education.

Devontre Thomas, 19, recently graduated from Chemawa Indian School in Salem and is heading to college this fall. But first, he’ll have to take a trip to the federal courthouse in Portland to fight the charge, stemming from an incident in March 2015.

Still, many are calling it a federal overreach, given the minuscule amount of marijuana involved in Thomas’s case — enough for one or two typical joints.

Study: Cannabis Compounds Can Kill Cancer Cells

The study tested six cannabinoids, together and independently, on leukemia cells.

Study author Wai Liu, an oncologist at the University of London's St. George's medical school, told U.S. News the chemicals displayed "potent anti-cancer activity" and, significantly, "target and switch off" pathways that allow cancers to grow.

"There's quite a lot of cancers that should respond quite nicely to these cannabis agents," Liu said. "If you talk about a drug company that spent billions of pounds trying to develop these new drugs that target these pathways, cannabis does exactly the same thing – or certain elements of cannabis compounds do exactly the same thing – so you have something that is naturally produced which impacts the same pathways that these fantastic drugs that cost billions also work on."

Marijuana Kills Cancer Cells, Admits the U.S. National Cancer Institute

The big news here is not these studies. These and many more are contained on PubMed, the U.S. National Library of Medicine that is also part of the National Institutes of Health. They are there for all of the world to see.

The news is that after decades of the demonization of marijuana by a federal government that supports pharmaceuticals and GMOs, there is a breath of change. But if you want to prevent or treat cancer with marijuana, be prepared for arrest and imprisonment in most states of this union.

'I used cannabis oil to cure my cancer'

According to McQue, a side-effect of the illegality of cannabis and the social taboo associated with it, is that users often find it hard to share their experiences and tend to follow quite a lonely path. “I don't think it's illegal to share knowledge about cannabis oil and know that it's helping ordinary South Africans from all walks of life who are interested in trying it as an alternative to surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. That makes it worth the risk."

FLASHBACK - Cannabis a medical miracle - it's official

Until now claims of the benefits of the drug for certain conditions have been anecdotal. But the preliminary results of the UK government trial, started last year, suggest that 80 per cent of those taking part have derived more benefit from cannabis than from any other drug, with many describing it as 'miraculous'.

The results make it almost inevitable that the Government will bow to public pressure and legalise the cultivation of cannabis for medical purposes by 2002. Scientists now predict that cannabis - first used for medicinal reasons 5,000 years ago - will follow aspirin and penicillin and become a 'wonder drug' prescribed for a wide range of conditions.

US government says cannabis kills cancer cells

The US government has confirmed that cannabis can kill cancer cells after the drug did so in tests on mice and rats, according to the National Cancer Institute.

The development will provide further ammunition for pro-legalisation campaigners.

On its website The National Cancer Institute, part of the US department of health, said: "Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids (the active ingredient in cannabis) may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.

"They may inhibit tumour growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumours to grow."
