Littlehirosima: Where people come to die

I visited a hospice for the second time in my life. What did I experience? Nothing. Emptiness. A place where people die. The Gorlovka Hospice. In the bombed out, abandoned to its fate, unfortunate Gorlovka. I occasionally get asked– are there hospitals there? Are there retirement homes? Even orphanages that are still open? Yes, it’s all there. And life there goes on as usual, sort of. There are markets, shops, barbers. People go to work. Travel on buses. Haggle on the markets. Choose presents. And there are also hospices. Where people stayed and worked, despite getting no salaries at all for the last year. Who did not abandon the patients even under rocket and artillery fire. And the fighting there continues still…

Former CIA Deputy Director gives stunning reason why Obama has not attacked ISIS’ oil infrastructure

As we pointed out a week ago, even before the downing of the Russian jet by a Turkish F-16, the most important question that nobody had asked about ISIS is where is the funding for the terrorist organization coming from, and more importantly, since everyone tacitly knows where said funding is coming from (as we have revealed in an ongoing series of posts “Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey’s President“, “How Turkey Exports ISIS Oil To The World: The Scientific Evidence” and “ISIS Oil Trade Full Frontal: “Raqqa’s Rockefellers”, Bilal Erdogan, KRG Crude, And The Israel Connection“)

Released a day before Thanksgiving, the U.S. Department of State disclosed its annual list of gifts from foreign governments to federal employees. Although the State Department publicly condemned Saudi Arabia for numerous human rights violations, the Saudi king gave President Obama and his family roughly $1.35 million in gifts last year. According to the Office of the Federal Register, many world leaders offered the president and multiple other federal employees lavish gifts throughout 2014. While British Prime Minister David Cameron gave Obama a photograph and facsimile telegram from Winston Churchill estimated at $440, Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud offered First Lady Michelle Obama $1.13 million in jewelry sets.

Republican Officials Just Got Caught Joining Neo-Nazis in Anti-Refugee Rallies

Islamophobia has been on the rise across the country since the Paris attacks on November 13th.

"Welcome to 2015, wherein people in the hinterlands are fearful of Islamic terrorists, willing to give up personal freedoms to make themselves feel safe, while their brethren are running around with weapons terrorizing the rest of the populace."

Why is it the same knee-jerk Republicans freaking out about ISIS are fostering terrorism in the homeland? Recruiting and influencing loonies to do their dirty work to eliminate the evil scourge known as abortion? Imposing their beliefs upon a populace that may not agree, in a nation founded upon religious freedom, never mind personal liberty?

Since the deployment of Russian long-range anti-aircraft missile system S-400 "Triumph", the US-led strikes on the territory of the republic have completely stopped

At the headquarters of the coalition, they, of course, do not assert a connection between the placement of the S400s and the absence of strikes, citing "the unevenness of hostilities," but the fact remains. It should be noted that the intensity of the attacks of the coalition dropped sharply after the Russian aircraft appeared at the Hmeymim airbase in late September. Note: in June of this year, the coalition inflicted an average of 12.8 strikes per day, then by October the number had fallen to 2.8. And in the last 10 days of October the United States also did not strike, explaining "bad weather." It is noteworthy that the Russian Air Force continued operation, despite the same weather which allegedly prevented the Americans. Currently, the United States is apparently studying the situation and trying to assess what risks the new Russian air defense missile systems entail, whose coverage which goes beyond the borders of the Syrian Arab Republic.
