'Russia is Defending Europe by Fighting Terrorists in the Middle East'

Instead of using this opportunity to present a united front against Islamic extremism, the United States and NATO have only criticized Moscow for its anti-terrorism efforts employing rhetoric reminiscent of the Cold War era.

It should come as no surprise, since Washington, according to the analyst, has no intention to tackle ISIL. "When we look at the US operations and compare them to the ones undertaken by Russia we can clearly see that it's Russia who is trying to fight the terrorist threat in the Middle East, not the United States," he pointed out.

Moreover, the US is using the refugee crisis to its own advantage, Piskorski noted. He mentioned that American foundations are sponsoring NGOs across Europe that are assisting incoming migrants. But Washington appears not to be driven by humanitarian concerns.

Turning point? EU Commission head says relations with Russia ‘must be improved,’ US ‘can’t dictate’

Drip! Drip! Drip! The US is losing its friends and allies.
It is high time that Americans and not old Polish whackos or Jewish dual loyalist neocons run America and its government! Spirit of 76!

Europe must treat Russia with more decency, improve the relationship, and not let EU policies be dictated by Washington, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said in a surprise speech in Germany.

It is now critical for the EU to work on its relations with Russia, Juncker said in the southern German town of Passau: “We must make efforts towards a practical relationship with Russia. It is not sexy but that must be the case, we can’t go on like this.”

Moreover, the US needs to keep its influence out of EU relations with other countries, Juncker added.

“Russia must be treated decently … We can’t let our relationship with Russia be dictated by Washington.”

Leading from the front. You will NEVER see an American officer in this day and age do the same. They might get hurt.

A general for Iran's Revolutionary Guards has been killed by ISIS in Syria, the guards said in a Friday statement. General Hossein Hamedani was reportedly advising President Bashar Assad's army on its fight against the militant group.

Hamedani's death was confirmed in a statement carried by Iranian media.

Report of Russian missile crash in Iran is US psyop: Former US Senate candidate

The United States has launched a psychological operation against Russia after its successful airstrikes against Daesh (ISIL) targets in Syria, a former US Senate candidate says.

Mark Dankof made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Friday while commenting on a report published by The Independent on Thursday which claims that a number of long-range cruise missiles fired from a Russian warship towards targets in Syria crashed in Iran on Wednesday.

Iran, Japan set to sign investment pact

Iran and Japan are set to strike a basic agreement on an investment pact as Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida is visiting Tehran on Monday, Tokyo-based media reported on Friday.

Japan aims to facilitate the return of its companies to Iran lest they fall behind European rivals which have been visiting the Middle Eastern country with an eye on the lifting of sanctions, The Nikkei daily said.

Reports of Russian missiles falling in Iran lies, part of psychological war - Iranian general

Western media reports of Russian missiles hitting Iran are “blatant lies” and part of a campaign of psychological warfare, a top Iranian military commander said. CNN claimed four Russian cruise missiles fell in Iran instead of continuing toward Syria.

“We have no reports of any Russian missiles crashing in Iran,” Gen. Musa Kamali told Russian news agency Sputnik. “All those media reports alleging that Russian missiles aiming at Syria hit Iran are blatant lies.”

“If the people making those claims had any proof, they would have certainly presented it,” he said. “The US made similar allegations in the past as part of their psychological warfare against whoever opposes their policies in the region.”

'Pics or didn’t happen': Internet reacts to ‘Russian missiles crash in Iran’ report

It looks like it was a challenging task for MSM outlets to make bloggers believe that four Russian missiles sent from the Caspian Sea to take out ISIS dens in Syria fell in Iran. While CNN, Sky and Reuters rushed to publish reports based on unnamed US officials, many readers trolled the media to check the validity of the sources and the allegations.

Senior Iranian general killed by Islamic State in Syria - Tehran

Pentagon Escalates Hostilities with Russia: “We Are In a Proxy War”

Warmongering retired general says Putin “is counting on the U.S. fear of escalation and fear of confrontation to stop any thought of retaliation.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a “proxy war” against the United State when Russian jets bombed CIA-trained rebels in Syria, and the U.S. military should have been ordered to retaliate, former U.S. Army vice chief of staff General Jack Keane said Thursday.

Study Shows No Correlation Between Violent Crime and Gun Laws

After every mass shooting, you can expect the gun control crowd to make the same exact argument that they’ve been trying to make for decades. They will tell you that in every country with limited access to firearms, there are fewer firearm related deaths, both by homicide and by suicide. In most cases this is probably true, with the exception of a few crime ridden hell holes that would probably have a high crime rate, regardless of how many guns are legally available.

School Staff Berate Teenager to Suicide for “Smelling Like Weed”

When a 16-year-old high school football player committed suicide earlier this week, it seemed as tragic as any other teenage suicide. However, the circumstances surrounding his death suggest that he wasn’t an ordinary depressed teen. In fact, the actions of his school administration and the police may have led to his suicide.

George Soros’ Next Color Revolution: Europe

Every time I see the old, good George Soros saying something about democracy and European values, I know that something is going to happen. This way the case of Ukraine, when George argued that democracy is the most important and when he says that European values are most important and that is why we must accept million refugees every year. How will it end? Probably as usual: fires, riots, overthrowing governments and total destabilization in Europe, more or less as it ended up recently in Ukraine. However, this time, ‘democracy’ and European values are installed on a much wider scale and by pretty determined are going to bring a ‘colour revolution’ from the Middle East to the heart of dying Europe.

5-minute video: geo-political Syria facts, analysis. 99.99%: demand US/UK .01% arrests or gamble on WW3

Storm Clouds Gathering’s outstanding documentation and 5-minute video demonstrates Earth’s imminent threat of World War 3 with nuclear weapons that destroy nearly all life on Earth.

Better read the preceding sentence twice to let it penetrate. I also recommend Luke Rudkowski’s videos for briefings.

But hey, there is another option than this nuclear high-stakes game: US military leadership enact their oaths to arrest .01% obvious War Criminals issuing unlawful orders for unlawful wars.

These facts are certain and actionable to demand arrests of US .01% “leaders” now in order to avoid risk of WW3:
Unlawful and lie-began wars,
So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt.
Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution.
“Covering the crimes” with lies by corporate media.

Hillary pledges to violate the Natural Right to Self-Defense

Hillary pledges to violate the Constitution!

snip:We are 13 months from Election Day 2016, and Clinton has already promised that she would rule by pen and phone rather than govern by consensus.

As a lawyer, Clinton should know that only the federal courts — not the president — can decide what statutory language means. Moreover, if she knew anything about FBI background checks, she would know that they are only as good as the database on which they rely. If a madman hides his mental illness, no database will reveal it.

Her attacks on the Supreme Court decisions were direct. She rejects their characterization of the right to keep and bear arms as a fundamental right — meaning that it is akin to thought, speech, press, association, worship, travel, etc.

No Syria-bound Russian missiles landed in Iran: Moscow

A senior Russian military official has vehemently rejected US allegations that Russian cruise missiles launched from the Caspian Sea and aimed at Daesh positions in Syria have crashed in Iran.

"Any professional knows that during these operations we always fix the target before and after impact. All our cruise missiles hit their target," Russia's Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, said in a statement on Thursday.

The remarks came in response to earlier claims by two unnamed US officials that a number of Russian Syria-bound projectiles landed in Iran on Wednesday. One official told CNN news network on Thursday that there may be casualties, while another said it is not yet known.

Ambassador: Russia Just Destroyed 40% of ISIS Infrastructure… in a WEEK

Russia began airstrikes against ISIS in Syria on September 30th. It’s been just over a week and we’re already getting reports like this one (via Sputnik):

Around 40 percent of Islamic State infrastructure in Syria has been destroyed since Russia began its military operation in the country, Syria’s Ambassador to Russia Riad Haddad told Sputnik on Wednesday.

“According to our data, about 40 percent [was destroyed]. In addition, a lot of terrorists have been killed. Now, they are retreating toward the Turkish border, as this country has traditionally provided them with protection,” Haddad said.

What does that tell you?

Being free to live your life as you see fit without laws, rules, or regulations dictating what you may, or may not eat, drink, smoke —or otherwise— as long as you’re not harming another person’s life, liberty, or property in the process;
Term limits for ALL elected, and appointed offices;
NO elected or appointed persons are above, or beyond the law, or with any ability to exempt themselves from any law, rule or regulation, or set themselves separate from the People in any way;
ONLY the People get to decide what is law, or not;

Meet the Secretive Committees that Run the Global Economy

There exists an overlapping and highly integrated network of institutions, committees and secret meetings of ad-hoc groups that collectively run the global economy. This network consists of finance ministries, central banks, international organizations and the various conferences and confabs that bring them together. This network is responsible for facilitating global financial diplomacy and managing the architecture of global financial governance. In short: it is the most powerful and informal political structure in the world.

Free Thought vs. Social Conformity

As celebrated thinker Edward de Bono notes: ‘If everyone is going in the same direction, then anyone who is going in a different direction is “wrong”. The other direction might be better – but it is still wrong.’

Such is the powerful pull of social conformity. People cannot be fully trusted to say and do what they think is right if others around them are all expressing an opposite opinion. This is because the pull towards social conformity, whether conscious or unconscious, is just too strong. The danger here is that in such environments a person is more likely to give away their personal responsibility than act upon it. A group more generally exhibits a lack of responsibility on the part of its members since each person thinks that the overall responsibility can be shared. Since there is no individual blame to be accrued, a person tends to relinquish their own personal responsibility.

The result is that each person reinforces the other’s inertia. Thus, non-action actually becomes the accepted norm within the group. This inertia is then reinforced and validated, often through personal rationalization, since so much has been invested in the group. To be wrong could inflict much angst upon an individual; it is therefore better to rationalize one’s actions as correct. This ‘fear of responsibility’ is a product of socialization and renders an individual less capable of dealing fluidly with the uncertainties and complexities of a full life.

Vladimir Putin – Agent of the Awakening?

Well, well, well, aren’t we seeing a massive turnaround of late. Putin was so sharp, calm and truthful at the UN and other recent speeches and interviews compared to the same old Amerikan false bravado diatribe it was like having a clean shower after swimming through a cesspool.

And the whole free world feels the same.

What I admire about him is his cool demeanor and very artful tact in how he approaches massively sensitive subjects. He has to cloak it in “diplomati-speak” of course to reach the type of audience within those bound up layers of communication, but he does it masterfully. You don’t sense the BS factor and full on propagandized deception you get from the Obamaramadingdong script reading puppet.

The entire system has been manipulated to wring out the very last dollar from the American people, to bankrupt the Treasury, and to bring the United States of America to its knees – so that a new international currency can rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.”

The NATO-Russia Face Off in Syria

The desert pebbles are also aware that ISIS/ISIL/Daesh goons have been infiltrated into Syria from Turkey – once again, across Hatay province; and vast swathes of ‘the Sultan’s’ Army and police were into the game.

The Deadly Fraud of "American Exceptionalism"

Doubtless you have heard more than once the term "American Exceptionalism." It implies, in short, that we are somehow special, different, superior. We are the "city upon a hill" whose freedoms and accomplishments set us apart. Alexis de Tocqueville coined the phrase midway through the 19th century, and it has enjoyed constant deployment by politicians and pundits ever since, because it lights a warm bulb of self-satisfaction in many bellies ... and people feeling good about themselves are easier to convince. Salesmen thrived on this axiom before Babylon's bricks were laid.

'Americans destroy others': actor Depardieu rails against US

Gerard Depardieu played a Frenchman desperate to do anything to live in America in the 1990 movie "Green Card", but in a new interview, he shows little love for the US.

"The US? They're a people who have constantly destroyed others," the 66-year-old actor railed in a broadcast Thursday by Paris radio station France Inter, taken from an interview he gave the day before to Russian journalists in Moscow.

"They fought each other, destroyed the Indians, after that they perpetrated slavery, then there was the civil war," he said.

"After that, they were the first to use the atomic bomb...No, I prefer being Russian."

He added: "If the Europeans stopped listening to the Americans, well, I'd be a lot happier."

Oklahoma Reportedly Used The Wrong Drug In A January Execution

Oklahoma used the wrong drug to stop an inmate's heart during an execution in January, according to an autopsy report obtained by a newspaper.

The Oklahoman reported Thursday that corrections officials used potassium acetate — not potassium chloride, as required under the state's protocol — to execute Charles Frederick Warner.

Last week, Gov. Mary Fallin issued a last-minute stay for inmate Richard Glossip after officials discovered that potassium acetate had been delivered on the day of his scheduled execution. All executions in Oklahoma are on hold at the request of Attorney General Scott Pruitt as the state investigates the mix-up.

Potassium chloride, which stops the heart, is the final drug in the state's protocol following a sedative and paralytic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no bleeding heart on crime; but until the State can restore the life it has accidentally taken, because DNA evidence has been mishandled, or handled cavalierly (which frequently happens in the US), states and the Federal Government should not be in the business of execution.

Getting convicted of a capital crime should result in life at hard labor, with every cent going back to the victim's family.

Why are the families of children, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons who've just been shot to death so giddy? To a normal person, or perhaps I should say anyone that's not under the spell of television induced trance, the behavior we witness in these presentations is out of synch to the point of being surreal.

Children Who Live Near Fukushima Have Alarming Cancer Rates

A new study says children living near the Fukushima nuclear meltdowns have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer at a rate 20 to 50 times that of children elsewhere, a difference the authors contend undermines the government's position that more cases have been discovered in the area only because of stringent monitoring.

Most of the 370,000 children in Fukushima prefecture (state) have been given ultrasound checkups since the March 2011 meltdowns at the tsunami-ravaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The most recent statistics, released in August, show that thyroid cancer is suspected or confirmed in 137 of those children, a number that rose by 25 from a year earlier. Elsewhere, the disease occurs in only about one or two of every million children per year by some estimates.

"This is more than expected and emerging faster than expected," lead author Toshihide Tsuda told The Associated Press during a visit to Tokyo. "This is 20 times to 50 times what would be normally expected."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the Japanese people have not thrown out every politician who was "serving" at the time of the Fukushima disaster, and prevented TEPCO from doing business in their country, still amazes me.

The health damage and deaths from this preventable catastrophe will haunt the Japanese people for a long time to come.

SUPREME COURT SAYS MANDATORY VACCINATIONS DON’T VIOLATE CHILDREN’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

?The SCOTUS’s failure to hear the case effectively states that mandatory vaccination of all public school children, doesn’t violate their constitutional rights.
A lower court had ruled that the school vaccination requirement, which three parents had legally challenged after their unvaccinated children were prohibited from attending school, did not violate the constitutional rights of the children.

The appeals court also upheld a decision that children exempted from vaccinations due to religious reasons could be prohibited from school attendance in the event of a disease outbreak that is vaccine preventable.

According to a report by the Associated Press:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm betting on two factors here.

First, no member of the Supreme Court has family members going to public schools, so the possibility of life-threatening adverse reactions to vaccines doesn't affect them personally.

And second, that several members of the Supreme Court, well enough to sway a decision on the issue, own stock in pharmaceutical companies.

This issue has never been about public health; it has always been about private profit.

That Awkward Moment When One Nobel Peace Prize Winner Bombs Another

Doctors Without Borders won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999. President Obama was awarded his in 2009. As Commander-in-Chief of the military that bombed the Doctors Without Borders hospital, this makes Obama perhaps the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to bomb another Nobel Peace Prize winner. Or maybe not? Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, and he masterminded the secret bombing of Cambodia and Laos for President Nixon around that time. Shortly thereafter, it came to light that in that campaign, hospitals were routinely targeted for bombing...

CHINA, RUSSIA, NORWAY, BRAZIL, TAIWAN DUMP US TREASURIES

Five large purchasers of US Treasuries – China, Russia, Norway, Brazil, and Taiwan – have changed their minds. They’re dumping Treasuries, each for their own reasons that are now coinciding. And at the fastest rate on record.

For the 12-month period ended July, sales of Treasuries by central banks around the world reached a net of $123 billion, “the biggest decline since data started to be collected in 1978,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

China, the largest foreign owner of Treasuries – its hoard peaking at $1.317 trillion in November 2013 – has been unloading with particular passion. By July, the latest data available from the US Treasury Department, China’s pile was down to $1.241 trillion. But in August, the real selling started when the yuan suddenly spiraled down further after its devaluation. Panicked, and fearful of losing control over their currency, officials at the People’s Bank of China sold Treasuries and bought yuan to stabilize the currency.

A SHORT HISTORY OF U.S. BOMBING OF CIVILIAN FACILITIES

On October 3, a U.S. AC-130 gunship attacked a hospital run by Médecins Sans Frontières in Kunduz, Afghanistan, partially destroying it. Twelve staff members and 10 patients, including three children, were killed, and 37 people were injured. According to MSF, the U.S. had previously been informed of the hospital’s precise location, and the attack continued for 30 minutes after staff members desperately called the U.S. military.

The U.S. first claimed the hospital had been “collateral damage” in an airstrike aimed at “individuals” elsewhere who were “threatening the force.” Since then, various vague and contradictory explanations have been offered by the U.S. and Afghan governments, both of which promise to investigate the bombing. MSF has called the attack a war crime and demanded an independent investigation by a commission set up under the Geneva Conventions.

America Pivots to Brzezinski’s Delusion of Eurasian Conquest

Russia historian Stephen Cohen points to the neoconservative establishment for America's latest outbreak of what can only be referred to as late-stage imperial dementia. Neocons Robert Kagan and wife Victoria Nuland have certainly done the heavy lifting to make Ukraine the staging ground for what appears to be a NATO blitzkrieg on Moscow. But whatever the determination of the neocon plot, they are only the barking dogs of master imperialist Zbigniew Brzezinski, whose grand design has been creeping over the globe since he stepped into the Oval office as National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter in 1977.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For you Doctor Who fans, have you noticed how much Zbigniew Brzezinski looks (and acts) like Davros? :)

Two Reasons People Can’t Stop Watching Drunk UConn Kid’s Mac and Cheese Arrest Video

By now, you may have seen the viral video of the drunk 19-year-old University of Connecticut student cussing out and shoving around a manager (who shows incredible restraint) at a campus eatery because he just wants his “f*cking bacon jalapeño mac and cheese”.

For almost ten minutes this kid, now identified as Luke V. Gatti of Bayville, New York, drunkenly refuses to leave the cafeteria without the macaroni and cheese after he shows up there with an open alcohol container completely drunk and gets denied service for not only underage drinking on campus, but for throwing a fit over pasta to the point that he assaults the manager multiple times, flipping him off and repeatedly calling him a “f*cking tool” and a “f*cking fag” among other brilliant retorts (not the way to get mac and cheese, we’re thinking).

After one more shove, finally an older cook comes out from the back and he and the manager wrestle the kid to the ground until the cops show up.

‘Extraordinary person’ Donald Trump invited to visit Crimea – as US president

I think Trump just got President Putin's endorsement!

Donald Trump a hit in Russia? You wouldn’t think so. But the mayor of Yalta in Crimea has wished the maverick Republican success in the 2016 presidential election and invited him to visit the city, hinting that a street may be renamed after him.

“We are following the elections process in your country with great interest,” Yalta Mayor Andrey Rostenko wrote in an open letter to Trump published on the city’s website. “We like your election program and we like you as an extraordinary person.”

The mayor added: “After your victory in the election you plan to establish friendly relations with President Putin – and this is an excellent decision.”

The FBI’s Investigation Of Hillary Just Had A Major New Development That Can’t Be Good For Her

One Platte River employee wrote to another employee that he was “Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shaddy (sic) s—.”

“I just think if we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups, and that we can go public with our statement saying we have backups since day one, then we were told to trim to 30days (sic), it would make us look a WHOLE LOT better,” the unnamed employee continued.

CHINA, RUSSIA, NORWAY, BRAZIL, TAIWAN DUMP US TREASURIES

Five large purchasers of US Treasuries – China, Russia, Norway, Brazil, and Taiwan – have changed their minds. They’re dumping Treasuries, each for their own reasons that are now coinciding. And at the fastest rate on record. For the 12-month period ended July, sales of Treasuries by central banks around the world reached a net of $123 billion, “the biggest decline since data started to be collected in 1978,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

Ann Coulter On Mass Shootings: The Problem Isn’t Guns Or White Men

The perpetrator of the latest massacre, Chris Harper-Mercer, was a half-black immigrant, so the media are refusing to get too specific about him. They don’t want to reward the fiend with publicity! But as people hear details the media are not anxious to provide, they realize that, once again: It’s a crazy person. How long is this going to go on?

Russian Allies Are Already Wiping the Floor with ISIS

These days you have to be skeptical of every piece of information that you come across, especially if it comes from a mainstream Western news source. Of course, foreign news outlets aren’t immune from fudging the truth either. At the end of the day, everyone has an agenda, and you have to trust your gut until multiple sources come to the same conclusion. And when it comes to the war in Syria, nobody is completely innocent, so we have to take everything with a grain of salt until all the facts are in.

With that said, we’re not going to get anywhere near the truth with the Western media until the truth becomes undeniable. If we want to get an idea of what’s happening on the ground in Syria right now, and how effective the Russian airstrikes have really been, we have turn to foreign news sources.

So far the earliest reports are coming out of the Iranian news website known as Farsnews. If their reports are anywhere near the truth, then the Syrian insurgency is on the ropes.

Why Are Julian Assange, Snowden, and Kim Dotcom All Being Assigned the Same Prosecutor in Virginia?

Julian Assange says US authorities have assigned the same prosecutor for him, Edward Snowden and Kim Dotcom in Virginia in an example of what he describes as “lawfare” – an attempt to universally apply American law in places where the military can’t reach.

The US goes about conducting “lawfare” as much as warfare, Assange said. He believes it is no coincidence that the cases of Edward Snowden, Kim Dotcom and his own are all being tried in Alexandria, Virginia, by the same prosecutor.

Potentially game-changing oil reserves discovered in Israel

The rugged land, captured from Syria during the 1973 Yom Kippur War and still under dispute between the two countries, includes vital underground water sources that feed directly into the Sea of Galilee itself, Israel’s main source of fresh water.

TPP: The Secret Deal to Destroy the Last Vestiges of Freedom

The Trans-Pacific Partnership was finalized on October 5th. Now Obama is going to do his best to ram it through the US Congress, which could be deliberating for months. Although some alarm is being raised, particularly by pissed off Americans who loathe the political elite that has repeatedly sold them out, it is likely Democrats and Republicans will cave and do the bidding of the international jewish elite per usual.

Of course we have no idea what is actually contained in this secret deal, proving yet again that our “democracy” is a complete sham wherein only the moneyed elite are able to determine policy, which often completely contradicts the country’s Constitution.

‘Which side are you fighting for?’ Russia blasts US for refusing to share intel on ISIS

Washington’s failure to share data with Russian intelligence about terrorist positions in Syria makes one question the goals that Americans have in their anti-ISIS campaign in Syria and Iraq, a senior Russian diplomat has said.

The refusal to share intelligence on terrorists “just confirms once more what we knew from the very start, that the US goals in Syria have little to do with creating the conditions for a political process and national reconciliation,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Thursday.

“I would risk saying that by doing this the US and the countries that joined the US-led coalition are putting themselves in a politically dubious position. The question is: which side are you fighting for in this war?”

He added that there is a wide national variety of instructors in those camps. There are Arabs, Pakistanis and even people with US and British citizenship, he said.

Volkswagen US boss told about emission cheat in 2014

Michael Horn said he was told about a "possible emissions non-compliance" in the spring of 2014.

The revelation was made in testimony due to be presented to a House committee investigating the scandal on Thursday.

He said he was told after a study by West Virginia University was published.
"I was informed that EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] regulations included various penalties for non-compliance with the emissions standards and that the agencies can conduct engineering tests which could include 'defeat device' testing or analysis," he said.

"I was also informed that the company engineers would work with the agencies to resolve the issue."

Mr Horn said in the written evidence it was not until 3 September this year that Volkswagen told US authorities about the "defeat device" in emissions software in diesel vehicles for the model years 2009 to 2015.

Israel says warned EU about VW emissions in 2013

Oct 7 Israel's Environment Ministry said on Wednesday it informed European regulators two years ago that local testers had been unable to test Volkswagen diesel vehicles at higher speeds because of a component placed in engines by the company.

Volkswagen had instructed that diesel vehicles be tested at 4,000-5,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) but, according to the ministry, the vehicles could not be tested above 2,500 RPM because of the component.

According to the Calcalist financial news website, the component in the vehicles' computer system prevented engines from reaching the maximum RPM under testing, meaning emission levels would not register at their "on the road" values.

Clinton e-mails were vulnerable to hackers, tech firm warned

A technology subcontractor that has worked on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s e-mail setup expressed concerns over the summer that the system was inadequately protected and vulnerable to hackers, a company official said Wednesday.

But the concerns were rebuffed by the company managing the Clinton account, Platte River Networks, which said it had been instructed by the FBI not to make changes. The FBI has been reviewing the security of the e-mail system.
