‘Worst possible conditions’: Residents flee Gatlinburg, Tenn., as flames engulf popular resort town

Parts of two popular Tennessee tourist towns on the edge of Great Smoky Mountains National Park were on fire Tuesday morning, along with much of the timberlands surrounding them.

A fire burning on the Chimney Tops mountain, one of the most popular hiking destinations in the Smokies, spread to the quaint resort cities of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tenn., as emergency officials ordered evacuations throughout Sevier County and shut down the park.

Trump, H. Clinton, Bush Sr., Obama Skype with ‘Black Hat handler’: ‘recount’ ‘election’ to Clinton? False flag ‘civil war’ to censor ‘fake news’ media? Russia in the cross-hairs of WW3?

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

This satire is based on the following objective and independently verifiable facts that point to hidden king-makers:

When Americans are told an election is defined by touching a computer screen without a countable receipt that can be verified, they are being told a criminal lie to allow election fraud. This is self-evident, but Princeton, Stanford, and the President of the American Statistical Association are among the leaders pointing to the obvious (and here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here). Again, no professional would/can argue an election is legitimate when there is nothing for anyone to count.

American’s trust for reliable information from Corporate Media steadily declines, with recent “news” that independent media (such as you’re reading here) is “fake news” in service to Russia.

Last week, Putin publicly recalled that at the end of 2015, he asked government representatives to refrain from participating in elections to the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAN). The president also promised that officials elected to the Russian Academy of Sciences would have the opportunity to deal only with scholarly activities. As a result, the deputy manager of presidential affairs and head of the medical directorate, Konstantin Kotenko, the head of the FSB’s directorate for registrations and archive funds, Lieutenant General Vasily Khristoforov, the head of the main military medical directorate of the defense ministry, Alexander Fisun, and the deputy minister of internal affairs and head of the investigative department of the interior ministry, Alexander Savenkov have been relieved of their duties.

Expedition Unknown "The Lost Colony of Roanoke"


My brother was on the end of this show. you will know who he is because we are twins.

The English had been to Croatoan and lived there for two years before they ever went to Roanoke. They brought three natives from Croatoan back with them to England. This was all before the lost colony. Manteo even learned to speak English. Obviously after Ralph Lane started a war with the mainland tribes, the only logical destination for the men on Roanoke would be to join Manteo on Croatoan Isnald where they were safe. They literally wrote it down and there are European artifacts being dug up on Hatteras island. Roanoke has had 100s of state sponsored digs and not found what a single dig on Hatteras produced.

Russia: USA supports chemical weapons! [Video]

The West's fake wars in the Middle East are nothing new, but it is not well known that during the Clinton presidential campaign, a Pulitzer prize winning investigative journalist by the name of Seymour Hersch released a terrifying article - "Whose Sarin?" While it was largely swept under the rug by mainstream media, the findings confirm that Hillary Clinton not only knew of the rebels' posession of chemical weapons in Libya, but that she authorised their use, in her capacity as Secretary of State. Later, the same kind of weapons would be blamed on Assad in Syria, in order to topple his government. Based on Mr Lavrov's press conference in recent days, it is evident that US funded chemical weapons use in Syria continue to this day...

Turkey Tries to Mark Territory in Syria, Suffers a Harsh Rebuke

The Russian President Vladimir Putin found himself in an altogether new role on Friday when his Turkish counterpart Recep Erdogan phoned him to lodge a complaint about Syrian military. Putin probably expected the phone call since an air attack on a Turkish contingent on November 24 in northern Syria had killed 3 Turkish soldiers and injured ten others. Turkey feels outraged, but is unsure whether it was a solo Syrian attack or a quasi-Syrian show. An intriguing detail here is that November 24 also happened to be the first anniversary of the downing of a Russian jet by Turkey, killing the pilot. A strange coincidence, indeed. But the Russian military maintained that the attack was not carried out by them. The Turks apparently know that the jets took off from a base which is under Russian control. Erdogan, conceivably, would prefer to accept the Russian version...

US Spent Millions to Buy Russian-Made Helicopters for Afghanistan. Now It Wants to Replace Them All With US-Made Machines

Having dumped hundreds of millions of dollars over the last decade-plus creating an air force for Afghanistan, the Pentagon is looking to virtually re-do the entire scheme, proposing another $814 million to replace the Russian-made helicopters the US bought with American-made Black Hawk helicopters. Afghanistan’s remnant air force at the start of the US occupation included a handful of old Soviet helicopters from the Soviet occupation. With Afghanistan’s limited pilots more experienced at flying Soviet planes, the US bought a number of Mi-17 helicopters from Russia and the Czech Republic, forming the backbone of the Afghan Air Force to this day. The Pentagon is now arguing that they should replace the entire fleet of helicopters with UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, citing “legal barriers” in the acquisition of additional Russian-made helicopters and parts over the past couple years of hostility.

Iran humiliates US Navy yet again

Pentagon officials made an announcement about unprofessional and dangerous actions of the crew of a warship of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). On November 26, US Navy SH-60 helicopter approached Iranian warships in the Strait of Hormuz. The distance to one of them was not more than 800 meters, while the other one was about 2 kilometers away. The crew of one of the Iranian warships aimed an anti-aircraft weapon at the US helicopter to stop it from approaching the Iranian vessels further. The crew of the helicopter did not feel the danger, but decided to turn in the opposite direction, Reuters reports. Pentagon officials did not expand on the "lack of professionalism" of the Iranian sailors. It would have been strange, if the crew of ship would have showed no reaction to the approaching US military helicopter. However, US officials believe that the incident in the Strait of Hormuz may have negative consequences for Iran.

China turns two powerful US and UK destroyers into worthless buckets

The US missile destroyer Zumwalt and high-tech destroyer of the British Royal Navy HMS Duncan turned into "useless buckets" owing to China's efforts. According to Eer agency, it was Chinese-made microchips that put the vessels out of order. Military experts try to find out how such a malfunction could occur. Earlier, a state-of-the-art US destroyer could not stand the "test" of passing through the Panama Canal. The vessel broke when passing through the canal. Afterwards, when in Florida, the ship encountered technical problems again. The $1.2 billion HMS Duncan destroyer found herself in a similar situation during NATO maneuvers. It was revealed later that all of the malfunctions occurred because of the chips of Chinese origin. The US had purchased tens of thousands of such chips for the navy.

Russia profoundly disappointed with results of BTWC Review Conference — foreign ministry

Russia is profoundly disappointed with the results of the 8th Review Conference of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC), the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday. The conference was held in Geneva on November 7-25. The task of the conference which is held every five years is to review the convention’s implementation in the previous five-year period and adopt a program for the next five years. "Throughout the latest forum, the Russian delegation spared no effort to adopt measures to strengthen the BTWC," the ministry said. "Along with the overwhelming majority of other signatories to the Convention, Russia spoke in favor of elaborating and adopting a legally binding additional protocol to the BTWC to improve implementation in all areas.

Russia supports declaring humanitarian pauses in Aleppo — deputy foreign minister

Moscow supports declaring humanitarian pauses in Aleppo so that humanitarian organizations may assist Russia in delivering aid to the city’s residents, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told reporters. "As of now, main efforts in the sphere of alleviating the humanitarian situation for residents of Aleppo and neighboring regions are made precisely by the Russian air group. The Russian side for the last several weeks, practically alone, without support, has been alleviating the situation for residents of this city by delivering appropriate humanitarian aid". The diplomat said that humanitarian organizations and structures "have so far demonstrated extreme caution and precise adherence to their own criteria or carrying out such operations. "This is their right, we respect this approach. However, it remains as it is — international organizations have not yet carried out the necessary amount of work".

Russian diplomat refutes allegations about bargaining on Aleppo blockade

"The essence of the agreements that are currently being worked on is not what the publication (The Washington Post) reported. The content of these agreements has a confidential character, and the generally accepted method of working on any agreements in diplomacy is as follows: nothing is agreed until everything is agreed, let alone such difficult issue as the settlement of the situation around Aleppo." So, in his words, "saying that the American side is seeking to bargain one thing for another in this concrete situation would be a blunt simplification of what is really going on." The Washington Post said earlier citing sources in the US Administration that "outgoing Secretary of State John F. Kerry is engaged in a furious if implausible diplomatic effort to strike a deal with Russia to end the siege of Aleppo" in exchange for separating the Syrian opposition from the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham terrorist organization (formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra).

Russia will react on basis of reciprocity to expansion of sanctions by Canada

On Monday, the Canadian government added 15 more people, including six State Duma deputies from Crimea, to the sanctions list. The Canadian Foreign Ministry said that it does not recognize the legitimacy of Russian parliamentary elections held in Crimea on September 18. The expansion of Canada’s sanctions list against Russia is an unfriendly step which will be followed by reciprocal actions, Kirill Kalinin, press secretary of the Russian Embassy in Ottawa, told TASS on Tuesday. "We express deep disappointment with the decision of the Canadian authorities to once again expand the list of Russian officials and parliamentarians. This will definitely have a negative effect on the whole complex of Russian-Canadian relations which have started to improve lately". The diplomat stressed that "the Russian side will take into consideration this unfriendly step and will react on the basis of reciprocity."

Over 8,500 civilians, including around 4,000 children, left areas controlled by militants," the center said. The civilians that left the city were provided with hot food, temporary accommodation and medical assistance. "Over the last 24 hours, over 140 militants surrendered and left through humanitarian corridors. All surrendered militants are subject to amnesty by the Syrian president. City authorities provide them with necessary help and assistance," the Russian center said.

According to Sokolov, Russia has received no information from Ukraine yet on cancelling the missile tests near Crimea scheduled for December 1-2. When asked whether the ministry had received response from Ukraine to the proposal not to carry out missile tests near Crimea on December 1-2, he said, "We have not received any official information yet, but there is still some time left." Russia’s aviation watchdog Rosaviatsia said earlier that Ukraine had made a unilateral decision to conduct missile-firing drills in the Crimea area. According to Rosaviatsia, this would be a violation of international agreements.

'Mirai bots' cyber-blitz 1m German broadband routers – and your ISP could be next

A widespread attack on the maintenance interfaces of broadband routers over the weekend has affected the telephony, television, and internet service of about 900,000 Deutsche Telekom customers in Germany.

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) issued a statement indicating that the cyber-assault, which was detected on Sunday and continued into Monday, has also targeted government networks, but has been inconsistent in its effect due to protective measures.

A modified version of the Mirai worm – which commandeered huge numbers of CCTV cameras and other Internet-of-Things gear – is now scanning home routers for security vulnerabilities, and either crashing or hijacking devices. This upgraded malware, and similar software nasties, were likely behind the weekend's outage in Germany, by attacking the modems' maintenance interface on port 7547.
