"... Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods.

College enrollment rates are dropping, especially among low-income students

Low-income high school graduates were far less likely to enroll in higher education in 2013 than in 2008, a downward trend that came at the same time the Obama administration was pushing to boost college access and completion, according to a new analysis of Census Bureau data.

Britain’s David Cameron Wants To Use Bombs To Prospect For Gold In Syria

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British Labour Party, is a man of genuine integrity and honesty in his opposition to British bombing of Syria.

Indeed, he is everything the Prime Minister of Britain, David Cameron, is not.

I think we see from the storm in the British press against Corbyn just how much the establishment values integrity and honesty, which is to say, not at all.

‘Honeymoon’ over for lira after Turkey shoots down Russian jet

The Turkish lira is already this year’s worst performing currency outside Latin America. But after a Turkish F16 jet shot down a Russian bomber near the Syrian border, analysts say the lira is likely to plunge even further, to record lows.

“It’s a bit of an abrupt ending of the honeymoon here for the lira,” Roxana Hulea, an emerging market strategist at Societe Generale in London told Bloomberg. According to her, the Turkish lira will slump to 3.1 per dollar (2.92 as of 8am GMT Monday).

In September, the lira fell to a record low of 3.0752 against the greenback. The Turkish currency won back eight percent through November 20, but last week’s slowdown extended the slide to 20 percent in 2015.

Hillary Clinton Called Mitt Romney ‘Mittens’ During the 2012 Election

An email released Monday from Hillary Clinton’s private server shows the former Secretary of State and current presidential candidate referring to Mitt Romney as “Mittens” ahead of a Republican debate in Florida in 2012.

In response to an email about deadlines for Republican candidates to file in various states, Clinton wrote, “If Mittens can’t beat Grinch in Florida, there will be pressure on state Republican parties to reopen or liberalize ballot access especially in the caucuses, which as we know are creatures of the parties’ extremes.”

“Grinch” presumably refers to Romney’s then-rival and Bill Clinton’s former antagonist, Newt Gingrich.

Former Clinton campaign aide criticized her first Benghazi appearance

According to newly released e-mails from Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, controversial former campaign aide Mark Penn wrote a note criticizing his one time boss's January 2013 appearance before a Senate committee investigating the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

"I don't think the emotion in the hearing works to your advantage," Penn wrote following her testimony. "Looks more like they rattled you on something no one outside the crazy right blamed you for anyway."

Penn had served as Clinton's chief strategist during her unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign, an effort that was riven by internal infighting, including disagreements over Penn's advice. Among his most persistent advice was for Clinton to avoid being seen as weak or emotional because voters might have trouble accepting those traits from a female president.

New Clinton emails contradict Benghazi testimony

Haim Saban, one of Hillary Clinton’s top donors, may be aligned with the Democratic Party. But when it comes to Mideast politics, he’s far from a progressive.

That doesn’t set the billionaire Israeli-American entertainment magnate apart from many other Democrats — see, for example, Sen. Chuck Schumer — who are Israel and Mideast hawks, but take liberal stands on domestic issues.

Except Saban’s top priority isn’t a liberal vision of American life. It’s Israel. And he makes no secret of that.

“I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel,” Saban told the New Yorker in 2010.

In 2008, Hillary Clinton called Sheldon Silver “a stalwart voice on behalf of the needs of New Yorkers” but on Monday, the disgraced New York state representative was found guilty on in a federal corruption sweep.

The former Speaker of the New York State Assembly was charged with seven counts of honest services fraud, extortion and money laundering was found guilty on all charges.

Emails sent the night of the attack indicate Clinton did indeed receive updates about the unfolding violence in Benghazi via her private, unsecured email network, contrary to her testimony in an Oct. 22 hearing before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Clinton argued last month that she had conducted the majority of her work outside of email and that she had been receiving live updates about the attack in person, not on her private server.

The Yuan Ascends to World Reserve Status: “Dollar System Being Done Away With”

The dollar’s days are numbered, and the new global economic order is shifting into place.

The IMF executive board’s decision to add the yuan, also known as the renminbi, to the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) basket alongside the dollar, euro, pound sterling and yen, is an important milestone in China’s integration into the global financial system

“The yuan’s inclusion is a largely symbolic move, with few immediate implications for financial markets. But it is the first time an additional currency has been added to the SDR basket and the biggest change in its composition in 35 years.

Glenn Greenwald Stands by the Official Narrative

WEBMASTER ADDITION: Greenwald has recently revealed he is as much a propagandist as anyone else in the corporate media.

Because of this, I am starting to suspect that the whole Edward Snowden story is a gigantic hoax, to scare us all into silence by selling the myth that the NSA is watching everything that we do. The Nazis did the exact same thing to the people of Germany, intentionally promoting the image of the Gestapo as seeing and hearing everything. I think the Snowden story is a a repeat, and thankfully, it is not working with the American people anywhere near as it did with the German people.

Police Brutality Victim Mysteriously Killed a Day Before Receiving $450K Settlement

His mother had a strange conversation with him just before his death, where he said that he had a feeling that something bad was going to happen.

“He felt like something was going to happen to him,” Robert Hinton’s mom Parys Johnson told the Daily News Saturday.

“We had this conversation Thursday. And his words to me were, ‘You know mom, if something happens to me, make sure (my girlfriend) Michelle and the baby’s all right.’”

Israelis – Not Muslims – Cheered in Jersey City on 9/11

There was, indeed, shameless cheering on the banks of the Hudson River on 9/11. But it was by young Israelis, as was widely reported at the time.

Bankers Reap Forfeited Souls As Millions Turn to Prostitution: “Viagra Costs 4x The Cost of P***y”

At one level, it pure economics. The Greek people have been squeezed. Their economy has been sold at auction, and everything is breaking down. In tandem, Greece is seeing a spike in prostitution at such a skyrocketing rate and a shocking decline of human value:

Paul Craig Roberts writes:

The plummeting living standards forced on the Greek people by German chancellor Merkel and the European banks have forced large numbers of young Greek women into prostitution. The large increase in the supply of women offering sexual services has dropped the price to 4 euros an hour. That’s $4.24, enough for a cheese pie or a sandwich, the value that bankster-imposed austerity has placed on an hour’s use of a woman’s body. The half hour price is $2.12. They don’t even get the minimum wage.

In its latest report, the HRW says the Saudi attacks against civilians have been deliberate and indiscriminate. “Human Rights Watch found either no evident military target or that the attack failed to distinguish civilians from military objectives,” the report says, adding that Saudi warplanes target residential areas.

New Smoking Gun: U.S. and UK KNEW Saddam Did NOT Possess WMDs

Tony Blair went to war in Iraq despite a report by South African experts with unique knowledge of the country that showed it did not possess weapons of mass destruction, according to a book published on Sunday.

God, Spies and Lies, by South African journalist John Matisonn, describes how then president Thabo Mbeki tried in vain to convince both Blair and President George W Bush that toppling Saddam Hussein in 2003 would be a terrible mistake.

Mbeki’s predecessor, Nelson Mandela, also tried to convince the American leader, but was left fuming that “President Bush doesn’t know how to think”.


The claim was this week supported by Mbeki’s office, which confirmed that he pleaded with both leaders to heed the WMD experts and even offered to become their intermediary with Saddam in a bid to maintain peace.

Argentine president overrides extradition of man charged in Denver murder

The government of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner issued an executive order Sept. 16 overriding a December decision by the Argentina Supreme Court. The court had approved the extradition of Kurt Frederick Sonnenfeld to the United States.

The government's order cited human rights in its denial of the request to grant extradition. It also says that extradition could put Argentina in a position of violating an international principle of not forcing the return of asylum seekers to countries where they could be persecuted.

Nov 30 13:22


Four hundred years ago, from 1610 to 1633, the Roman Catholic Church thought it knew more about the solar system than Galileo Galilei. So it subjected Galileo to an Inquisition.

Now, in 2015, Pope Francis thinks he knows more about climate science than thousands of educated climate scientists (like me). So the Pope wants a new Inquisition for those who tell you the truth about climate change.

The fallible Pope Frances "believes" global warming is "mainly" man-made. He believes the Paris summit must implement a Global Warming treaty or our environment is toast. He believes global warming hurts the poor.

He's wrong on all counts. The loss of carbon-dioxide-restricted abundant cheap energy, not global warming, hurts the poor.

Although the Catholic Church does not claim the Pope is "infallible" in matters of science, few people understand this technicality. So the Pope, with his great influence, does great damage to truth with his false claims about science.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Pope's comments are all the more absurd when you recall that the Bible teaches that the Earth is flat, rests on pillars, and does not move!

Russia has ‘more proof’ ISIS oil routed through Turkey, Erdogan says he’ll resign if it’s true

Russia has received additional intelligence confirming that oil from deposits controlled by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) goes through Turkey on an industrial scale, President Vladimir Putin said speaking on the sidelines of the climate change summit in Paris.

Moscow has grounds to suspect that the Su-24 was downed by Turkish jets on November 24 to secure illegal oil deliveries from Syria to Turkey, he said.

“At the moment we have received additional information confirming that that oil from the deposits controlled by Islamic State militants enters Turkish territory on industrial scale,” he said.

“We have every reason to believe that the decision to down our plane was guided by a desire to ensure security of this oil’s delivery routes to ports where they are shipped in tankers,” Putin said.

Speaking in Paris on Monday, President Recep Erdogan said that he will leave office if there is proof of Turkey’s cooperation with IS.

To JPM, This Is The Alarming Chart Suggesting The Next Recession "Is Just Around The Corner"

By now it is clear to even the most tenured economists that the half of the US economy, the one that deals with manufacturing and industrial production, is sliding into, if not already, in recession with today's contractionary Chicago PMI and subzero Dallas Fed data confirming this deterioration.

But while the NBER is notoriously behind the curve when it comes to determining the onset of recessions, the market may have already spoken, and nowhere louder than in the collapse of corporate cash flow generation. This collapse in EBITDA is also what we cautioned three weeks ago is the biggest risk facing the economy.

German army could deploy 1,200 soldiers to Syria: report

The planned German military participation in international efforts to combat the jihadist group "Islamic State" ("IS") in Syria will involve the largest current overseas deployment of German troops, according to Bundeswehr Inspector General Volker Wieker.
"From a military point of view, some 1,200 soldiers will be needed to operate the planes and ships," Wieker told the "Bild am Sonntag" newspaper.
Wieker, who is the highest-ranking officer in the Bundeswehr, said the deployment would be able to begin very quickly once the German parliament had approved a mandate for the operation, adding that the government would seek such a mandate before the end of the year.
No German bombing
The inspector general said that he did not believe that German participation in current US-led air strikes against "IS" was essential at the present time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to both to General Volker Wieker and British Prime Minister Cameron; there is a phrase in American English of which you both need to be monumentally careful, and that phrase is "mission creep", which is what almost inevitably happens, when a plan does not produce the results you had envisioned.

And you both are looking at a potential military conflict with Russia over Syria; please tell me, and the people of your respective countries, that this is not the outcome you want to have happen.

snip: The next best friend of the terrorist is the politician. It is almost impossible for a politician to resist the temptation to ride on the wave of panic. Panic creates “national unity”, the dream of every ruler. Panic creates the longing for a “strong leader”. This is a basic human instinct.

Turkey Arrests Generals for Stopping Syria-Bound Trucks 'Filled With Arms

Two Turkish generals and a colonel were detained on Saturday for intercepting Syria-bound trucks that belonged to Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT), the newspaper Today’s Zaman reported... Last Tuesday, Erdogan answered claims previously made by critics, who said the trucks were filled with weapons, by sarcastically asking them: "What if the MIT trucks were filled with weapons?" Then on Saturday, contrary to his earlier claims that the MIT trucks were carrying humanitarian aid to Turkmen, Erdogan said the trucks were actually heading on their way to help the Free Syrian Army (FSA). Just make up your mind, Mr. Erdogan. Where the trucks were heading and what were they carrying after all? Meanwhile, some very high-ranking Turkish officials, including then-president Abdullah Gul, revealed that the Syria-bound trucks were a "state-secret," leading to more speculations that the trucks were indeed filled with weapons.

snip: The loans were made to corrupt Greek governments who were paid bribes by the lenders to accept the loans, and the proceeds often were used for purchases from the country from which the loan originated. For example, Greek governments were paid bribes to borrow money from German or other foreign banks in order to purchase German submarines. It is through this type of corruption that the Greek debt grew.

Asking for Trouble: Erdogan Drags Europe Into New 'Cuban Missile Crisis'?

Turkey's "unprecedented" provocation could well lead to a standoff reminiscent of the darkest days of the Cold War, political analyst Pyotr Iskenderov asserted, adding that by downing the Russian Su-24 bomber Ankara managed to achieve the unthinkable: it "outperformed" the Soviet Union's archrival. "It also proves the existence of a very dangerous geopolitical trend directly related to the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, which have already become NATO or EU members, or cherish the dream of joining these organizations (often at any price)," the expert wrote for the Strategic Culture Foundation, Sputnik News reported. Turkey, according to Iskenderov, decided to shoot down the Russian bomber because President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is confident that NATO and particularly the US will back him no matter what happens.

Why Turkey Stabbed Russia in the Back

Ankara uses, finances, and weaponizes a basket case of extremist outfits across northern Syria, and needs by all means to keep supply line corridors from southern Turkey open for them; after all they need to conquer Aleppo, which would open the way for Ankara’s Holy Grail: regime change in Damascus.

At the same time Ankara is terrified of the YPG – the Syrian Kurd People’s Protection Units – a sister organization of the leftist PKK. These must be contained at all costs.

So the Islamic State group – against which the United Nations has declared war – is a mere detail in the overall Ankara strategy, which is essentially to fight, contain or even bomb Kurds; support all manner of Takfiris and Salafi-jihadis, including the Islamic State group; and get regime change in Damascus.

Chief of Staff: Germany Needs 1,200 Troops for Syrian Anti-ISIL Campaign

Germany’s Chief of Staff has revealed that at least 1,200 military personnel will be required in order to support and effectively use the air force and vessels that Berlin wants to deploy into battle with ISIL in Syria as part of the US-led coalition. “From the military point of view, to ensure the operation of aircraft we need about 1,200 military personnel,” Inspector General of the Bundeswehr (unified armed forces of Germany),Volker Wieker, told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper in an interview, RT reported. Wieker said that the mandate for the deployment may be given by the end of the year. On Tuesday, the Bundestag will begin discussions about the matter. The deployment of German forces could “occur very rapidly after mandating,” Wieker said. If approved the mission might become the largest foreign deployment of the Bundeswehr.

Netanyahu: We will not hand over even ‘one meter’ of land

Israel is not planning to unilaterally hand over portions of Area C in the West Bank to the Palestinian Authority, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Likud ministers on Sunday.

“There won’t be any transfer of territory to the Palestinians, not 40,000 [dunams or 10,000 acres], not 10,000 and not even one meter,” Netanyahu said on Sunday.

He spoke after Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan publicly charged that the Office of the Coordinator for Government Activities in the Territories and the Civil Administration is continuing work on a plan to transfer 10,000 dunams of territory in Area C to the Palestinian Authority.

But Netanyahu told the Likud ministers that he would not execute any such plan.

Likud ministers Ophir Akunis, Ze’ev Elkin, Haim Katz, Israel Katz and Miri Regev raised the issue with Netanyahu at the weekly cabinet meeting.

“It’s a delusional idea,” said Akunis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, if that wasn't a clear verbal kick in the rear to President Obama and Secretary Kerry, I don't know what is.

And Secretary Kerry, a word to the "publicly kicked"; stop with the frequent flier miles to Tel Aviv; you are accomplishing absolutely nothing here.

The only language the Israeli government understands, you and Obama refuse to speak here. And that is the complete cessation of all US aid to Israel, both military and economic, which you both know is illegal, under the Symington Amendment to the Constitution.

You and Obama have been an epic fail on the allegedly DC-preferred "two state solution", and can never, ever again be viewed as honest brokers of peace in the Middle East.

After the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the destruction of Libya, Syria was to be the next state overthrown. Washington and its regional allies had planned this for some time.

The Islamic Republic of Iran would remain the only Middle East country without US military bases. After Iran, Washington would control the entire region, excluding possible competitors such as Russia and China. Palestine would be lost.

David Cameron will order ISIS leaders to be killed if MPs vote to support airstrikes in Syria and top of the hit list is mastermind behind Paris bombings 

David Cameron will order ISIS leaders to be killed if MPs vote to support airstrikes in Syria - and top of the hit list is a man believed to have been the mastermind behind the Paris massacre.

The Prime Minister told RAF commanders to target those at the head of the 'international attacks' unit, which was behind the mass killings and is now planning an attack in Britain.

At the top of the UK's 'kill list' is Sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, who is in charge of the ISIS unit, according to the Sunday Times.

The motion - expected to be tabled on Wednesday - will make clear explicitly that ground troops will not be deployed as part of the action, and highlight the support of the United Nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wander what odds London bookies are placing on when, if the British Parliament votes positively on this, there will be a direct military confrontation with Russia over Syria, which is there at the invitation of the Syrian government; the UK has not been invited to assist here at all.

I would also like to strongly caution Prime Minister Cameron that extrajudicial assassinations can be severely hazardous to the health of any Constitutional monarchy.

So, having established the Clintons' record of treating the United States like it is their own personal property, let us look at what is going on today.

The Clintons have set up a corporation called the Clinton Foundation, which presents itself as a charitable foundation. That status is in question as the paperwork to make it a legal 501(c)3 does not seem to exist. Moreover, the Clinton Foundation spends just a tiny fraction of its revenues on any real charities, with Bill and Hillary Clinton being the "charity" that receives most of the money. Portions of the Foundation are operating as cash "pass throughs" while a watchdog on real charities describes the Clinton Foundation as a "slush fund."

China's Yuan To Become A Main Reserve Currency

The Chinese yuan will join a basket of the world's leading currencies, the International Monetary Fund announced Monday.

The IMF said that the yuan "met all existing criteria" to be included with the U.S. dollar, euro, Japanese yen and the British pound as one of the currencies used for the global organization's Special Drawing Rights, which serves as a standard for dealing with the financial reserves of its 188 member governments.

China is the world's second largest economy. Currency traders and economists say the move should encourage the government in Beijing to deliver on promises to make the yuan "freely tradable" and to open up its financial system. The country has historically pegged its currency to the dollar, giving it an advantage in exporting goods to the United States and helping it to emerge as a manufacturing powerhouse.

Why I’m Closing My Bank Accounts While I Still Can

Just then the branch manager came over to the teller inside the cage. “Hi Mr. Gilani, is there a problem?” she asked.

“Yes, there is a problem,” I replied. “I’m trying to cash a check and first this young lady said she didn’t know me and couldn’t cash the check, then she said I’d have to fill out some forms to get my money out. What’s going on?”

The manager told me there were some “new rules” they had to follow. She acknowledged she knew me, telling the teller I was okay, but told me I’d still have to fill out the form.

“I am not filling out any form ever to take my money out of my account,” I stated. “Is that a federal law or is that this bank’s idea of customer service?”

“It’s just what we have to do now,” the manager replied.

So I looked at her as if to say, “Really? You’re not going to tell me why I have to fill out a form to take cash out of my account?”

Passports Required For Domestic Travel In 2016, But IRS Can Revoke Passports For Taxes

Think you only need a passport to board an international flight? In 2016, some fliers better have one to fly domestic, which means they had better be paying their taxes. It now looks as though your passport could be cancelled if you owe the IRS. The Real ID Act created a national standard for state-issued IDs. It hits air travel in 2016. Some states initially refused to comply, fearing that the feds would make a national database of citizens. Others cited high administrative costs and a 50% increase in fees for drivers. Most states are OK, but millions in Louisiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire and New York may have to start using a passport to fly domestically.

Chilling Video Shows NATO Member State Greeting and Providing Refuge to ISIS Militants

A video that seemingly bolsters Russian claims of Turkish government complicity with the Islamic State, highlights the casual relations between the terror group and Turkish officials.

Turkey has been accused of being one of the main benefactors of the ISIS terror group, accused of providing logistics, financing and military hardware. These accusations are particularly startling as Turkey is a member of NATO, a collective security group obligated to go to war if a member state is attacked. It would be a seemingly dangerous proposition to allow a state that basically props up the Islamic State, which then uses the group as a geopolitical weapon, to be in such a strategically important group.

REVEALED: Bush and Blair went to war in Iraq despite South African intelligence proving no WMDs

Tony Blair went to war in Iraq despite a report by South African experts with unique knowledge of the country that showed it did not possess weapons of mass destruction, according to a book published on Sunday.

God, Spies and Lies, by South African journalist John Matisonn , describes how then president Thabo Mbeki tried in vain to convince both Blair and President George W Bush that toppling Saddam Hussein in 2003 would be a terrible mistake.

Mbeki’s predecessor, Nelson Mandela, also tried to convince the American leader, but was left fuming that “President Bush doesn’t know how to think”.

The claim was this week supported by Mbeki’s office, which confirmed that he pleaded with both leaders to heed the WMD experts and even offered to become their intermediary with Saddam in a bid to maintain peace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember, as things get perilously closer to war with Russia over Ukraine and/or Syria, that both American and British leaders have absolutely no problem lying to their respective citizenry about taking their countries to war, no matter how disastrously those wars may turn out.

It doesn't matter which party they belong to; if they feel that these wars will financially benefit those to whom they are most beholden (the 1% who own the major corporations), they will attempt to drag their countries into war, no matter how many of their citizens get killed or maimed for life.

U.S. Congress giving IRS authority to rescind passports to prevent citizens from leaving the country

Webmaster addition: So, the US Government wrecks the economy, but will "solve" the unpaid tax epidemic by prohibiting Americans from traveling to places where they can get decent paying jobs with which to pay their bills? Yeah, that makes a whole lot of sense. About as much sense as demanding travel papers from legal American citizens while allowing illegal immigrants and refugees to come and go as they please!

Plus, I don't think Congress or the IRS realize that in taking this step (not to mention all the commercials for tax resolution services) they are advertising the huge scale of tax non-compliance problem that is going on in this country right now!

Americans are broke. There is nothing more left for government or corporations to take. As Americans are ordered to buy something, such as Obamacare, they don't buy other things they might want or need. The net effect on the economy is nil, and the same for tax revenues.

Israel Backs Down from Claim That Google Agreed to Censor Palestinian Videos of Conflict

Editor's Update: Google released a statement in response to the Govt of Israel's claim of a censorship agreement: “Following media reports about a meeting last week between Google / YouTube executives and the Israeli Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, we wanted to clarify that this meeting was one of many that we have with policymakers from different countries to explain our policies on controversial content, flagging and removals. The Israeli Ministry for Foreign Affairs has corrected its original announcement which, in error, suggested there had been an agreement with Google to establish ‘a mechanism to monitor online materials.’"

Israeli daily Maariv said Hotovely will be working with Google and YouTube officials in a joint mechanism that will be in charge of “monitoring and preventing” any publication of materials deemed by Tel Aviv to be “inflammatory.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And Israel's serial genocide against Palestinians is NOT "inflammatory"?!? Give me a break here.

And if Google believed it had to issue a press release, walking back Hotovely's statements, it is obvious that whatever Hotovely stated was nothing more than a bare-faced lie about what precisely had been discussed and agreed upon at that meeting.

Moscow, Tehran move closer against background of intensified anti-terror strikes

Russian President Vladimir Putin concluded his first visit to Iran in eight years last week. Moscow and Tehran reaffirmed their joint stance over the Syrian crisis and cemented their bilateral cooperation in a number of arenas.

The main purpose of Putin's Iran trip was to draw Tehran over to its side in cracking down upon the Islamic State (IS). Last Tuesday, Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 warplane near the Turkish-Syrian border. By strengthening Moscow-Tehran connections, Putin was attempting to take precautions against any potential negative effects the downing might exert on the Kremlin-led anti-terrorism coalition in the Middle East, in which Iran is included. Establishing a joint front in the region to fight against IS was one of the most urgent tasks of this visit.

The United Arab Emirates has secretly dispatched hundreds of Colombian mercenaries to Yemen to fight in that country’s raging conflict, adding a volatile new element in a complex proxy war that has drawn in the United States and Iran.

It is the first combat deployment for a foreign army that the Emirates has quietly built in the desert over the past five years, according to several people currently or formerly involved with the project. The program was once managed by a private company connected to Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater Worldwide, but the people involved in the effort said that his role ended several years ago and that it has since been run by the Emirati military.

In addition to sending its own special operations troops, the U.A.E. has sent more than 400 Colombian troops to Yemen who had been training in the Emirati desert.

It is also a glimpse into the future of war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hired mercs are nothing new in warfare.

But at this point, the Houthis are pretty well dug in, and unless the US-enabled Saudi military, combined with the UAE, are willing to go the distance in a huge war of attrition (which is where this conflict appears to be headed), I seriously doubt that they can make the kind of headway they want to re-install Al-Hadi as Yemen's puppet leader.

If Saudi Arabia won’t take in Syrian refugees, why should the United States? In recent weeks, we have heard a whole lot from Barack Obama about our “moral obligation” to take in refugees from Syria. Well, if there is a “moral obligation” to help these refugees, then why aren’t more wealthy Islamic nations stepping up to the plate? According to Amnesty International, since the beginning of the Syrian civil war Saudi Arabia has not accepted a single Syrian refugee. Neither has Kuwait. Neither has Qatar. Neither has the United Arab Emirates. These nations are absolutely swimming in money, and yet they have slammed the door on these desperately needy Islamic refugees. So what precisely does that tell us?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cold, hard truth is, even for the refugees who can speak English, there are no jobs out there for them, and that is because there are no jobs for 94 million Americans who want to work, but can find no work at all.

So what is the answer here?!? More public assistance from struggling states which are already near bankruptcy from attempting to comply with unfunded Federal mandates?!?

This policy of Obama's again demonstrates that one of the hallmarks of his executive decisions is the nearly pathological inability to think anything through to its logical conclusion.

CIA AGENT: Millions have been spent to break up Yugoslavia

Robert Baer, a former CIA agent, says that millions of dollars were spent to smash the former Yugoslavia. When I arrived in January 1991 in Sarajevo task was to spread false information that the Serbian terrorists are about to attack the city, and thus to create panic, says Baer. Baer claims that then he and his colleagues received millions of dollars to influence politicians and the break-up of Yugoslavia.

- We bribed parties and politicians who incited hatred among nations - said Baer. He pointed out that a US senator during the war in B&H said that Srebrenica will be the main news on the world's front pages.

- He even told us that we have already established contact with the media - said Baer.

Russia targets Turkish economy over downed warplane

Russia on Thursday pledged broad retaliatory measures against Turkey's economy in revenge for the downing of one of its warplanes, as recriminations between Moscow and Ankara reached fever pitch.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan angrily rebuffed his Russian counterpart's demands for an apology and said Vladimir Putin had snubbed a phone call from him after Tuesday's incident.

The downing of the plane on the Syrian border has raised fears it could fuel a wider geopolitical conflict, and highlighted the difficulty of forging consensus on the fate of Syria as French President Francois Hollande held talks with Putin in Moscow.

While Russia ruled out any military retaliation against NATO member Turkey over the plane incident, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev gave his ministers two days to work out "a system of response measures" in the economic and humanitarian spheres.
