Finland urges common ground with Russia on refugees issue

"Risks will be big if we fail to find common ground," the minister told the Savon Sanomat newspaper. Finland’s authorities earlier said Russia allows refugees to go to Finland without Schengen visas. "In future, it should be so that leaving for Finland without the necessary documents is prohibited," Orpo said... By the end of 2016, up to 7,500 refugees could come to Finland through the border with Russia, according to the Finnish border guard service. Last year, some 32,500 refugees, mostly from Iraq, came to Finland, the country’s migration authorities said. In 2014, the number of asylum seekers reached just 4,000.

Violence Against Anti-Zionist Protesters At Presidential Campaign Rallies Needs To Be Preempted

The neocons seem very happy that the heckler who shouted "Marco Rubio is owned by Jews!" was violently attacked. The guy behind the heckler, who looked literally like Brutus from the Popeye cartoons, immediately attacked the heckler and pulled him to the ground, to cheers from the crowd and laughs from Rubio himself. It's outrageous how quickly these thugs resort to violence, it's very disgusting. When I shouted at Donald Trump about the Israelis arrested on 9/11, I wasn't attacked at all, despite being surrounded by 9,000 Trump fans whom Trump himself called 'maniacs' at that very rally. I will explain why. I took several preemptive measures. Common sense warns us to take action in order to prevent an anticipated event from happening.

Jakarta Blasts: ISIS Inc Strikes Again

By Tony Cartalucci

We are to believe that the “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” (ISIS) – named so because it allegedly exists and primarily operates in Iraq and Syria – is fighting the Syrian government, nonexistent moderates the US claims it is arming and funding to the tune of several billions of dollars a year since 2011, the Iraqi government, the Kurds, Russia, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, and Iran. And also, allegedly, ISIS is fighting the combined military power of the United States, France, England, Germany, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Qatar.

Yet we are expected to believe that ISIS has the time, energy, resources, and inclination to attack Indonesia in a spectacular, large-scale bombing and mass shooting?...

Meet The Only Republican Who Voted Against Audit The Fed Bill: U.S. Senator Bob Corker

63-year-old Robert Phillips "Bob" Corker, Jr. from Tennessee is the only Republican Senator who actually voted against the Audit the Fed bill. Despite posing as a 'fiscal conservative,' Corker's record speaks for itself and proves the opposite. He is in favor of a carbon tax. He opposes tax cuts, he opposed a measure to get rid of the 18-cents-per-gallon federal gasoline tax. He heartily endorsed the 2008 Wall Street bailout and supports taxing people for online purchases. He wants to provide over a BILLION dollars, from the tax slaves, in Homeland Security grants to states! Corker is also a rabid Zionist who strongly supports sanctions on Iran He also opposes trials for those suspected of terrorism. On his official Senate website, Corker drones on about Washington's "mounting debt" but never addresses the head of the snake, the federal reserve, and the fact that we borrow money at interest from a private central bank. Bob Corker is an absolute fraud and a criminal.

Russia may start publishing data on US-led anti-IS coalition actions in Syria

The Russian Defense Ministry may begin publishing data on the results of airstrikes of the international coalition in the Middle East, in order to disprove the accusations alleging that the Russian military aim at civilian targets, ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Friday. General Konashenkov recalled that at the end of last year the ministry said that it had the sufficient amount of information on the results of the work of the countries of the anti-Islamic State coalition in Syria. The Defense Ministry said that these results did not always correspond to the stated objectives. "Frankly speaking, we expected our colleagues not only to pay attention to this, but also to draw certain conclusions. Therefore, to disprove further rumours and accusations against us and if our colleagues keep silent on the results of their bombings in Syria, we will ourselves have to inform the public of these facts," said the Russian official.
