    In August 2016, Politico reported top Democrats held a conference call discussing damage control surrounding future releases from WikiLeaks, apparently deciding to collectively allege the leaks will include fabricated content. In a desperate and sloppy attempt to create a link between Russia and Donald Trump, Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald wrote an article titled “Dear Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, I am not Sidney Blumenthal.” The article claimed the publication Sputnik and Trump coordinated an attack on Hillary Clinton. In reality, Sputnik news editor and Georgetown graduate Bill Moran rushed to publish a story about a WikiLeaks email in which Clinton...
  • Earth faces another ICE AGE within 15 YEARS as Russian scientists discover Sun 'cooling'

    10/22/2016 7:04:55 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 54 replies ^ | 10/22/2016 | Sean Martin
    Experts say that solar activity as low as it currently is has not been seen since the mini-ice age that took place between 1645 and 1715 – a period known as the Maunder Minimum where the entire Thames froze over. A new model has allowed experts to predict solar activity with more accuracy than ever before and it suggests that magnetic activity will fall by 60 per cent between 2030 and 2040. The model looks at the Sun’s ’11-year heartbeat’ – the period it takes for magnetic activity to fluctuate. This cycle was first discovered some 173 years ago. However,...

    Donald Trump ally Roger Stone responded Wednesday to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s claim that he had advance knowledge of the release of Podesta’s emails, calling it a “vile smear” that he “categorically denies...” He also added, “I don’t need the Wikileaks to educate me on the illicit activities, including money laundering for Russian interests, of the Podestas.” The Podesta Group, which John Podesta’s brother runs, was included in the Panama Papers as a lobbyist for Russia’s biggest bank. “John Podesta makes Paul Manafort look like Mother Theresa,” Stone said.

Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, a former vice-president of Iraq and one of Saddam Hussein's closest henchmen, is said to be under the protection of Syria's Republican Guard in the decrepit military base near the airport. He is among thousands of regime figures who are believed to have slipped into Syria before Damascus sealed the border. Izzat had...

About 200 people clashed inside the Khovanskoye cemetery in southwest Moscow. The fighters fired guns and used shovels, baseball bats and steel bars to bash their opponents, police said. Video of the wild fight showed dozens of people rushing past headstones while clutching bats and poles as weapons.

    I had never heard about this story before, but a clever and competent reader shared it on our Facebook page, and I thought some of y’all might enjoy it too. Back in 1989, card-carrying Communist and Politburo member in the Soviet Union Boris Yeltsin visited Johnson Space Center, and then took a tour of a grocery store in Clear Lake, Texas. According to a Houston Chronicle reporter, Yelstin was far more affected by the grocery store visit than he was the space center. He apparently was stunned by the aisles and aisles of supermarket products, and told the other Russians...

    In one of the most dramatic upsets in Olympic history, the underdog U.S. hockey team, made up of college players, defeats the four-time defending gold-medal winning Soviet team at the XIII Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid, New York. The Soviet squad, previously regarded as the finest in the world, fell to the youthful American team 4-3 before a frenzied crowd of 10,000 spectators. Two days later, the Americans defeated Finland 4-2 to clinch the hockey gold. The Soviet team had captured the previous four Olympic hockey golds, going back to 1964, and had not lost an Olympic hockey...

The Gipper has been gone for over a decade, and one has to wonder what he would think now, as ISIS runs wild on the planet and the Shining City on the Hill sits in a decrepit and depressed state. It appears that the nation needs him more than ever. As Simon and Garfunkel wondered where Joe Dimaggio had gone, our nation, in a state of feckless leadership, seems to be turning its eyes toward the late President. Perhaps, this is the reason for the rise of Mr. Trump. While Reagan and...

It had previously been registered with three companies identified by the US Department of the Treasury as firms controlled by the notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, according to...

State of War by James Risen, the New York Times reporter who exposed the Bush administration's controversial domestic spying operation, claims the plans contained fatal flaws designed to derail Tehran's nuclear drive. But the deliberate errors were so rudimentary they would have been easily fixed by sophisticated Russian nuclear scientists, the book said. The operation, which took place during the Clinton administration in early 2000, was codenamed Operation Merlin and "may have been one of the most reckless operations in...

They sure have the technical expertise to do this. And if they tapped the phone of The One that means they tapped the phone of the one who gives the orders to The One, namely Valerie Jarret. In addition to phone tapping I am also wondering if actual conversations in the Oval office and other White House offices were bugged. No President since Nixon stupidly recorded...

Strelkov May Have Trouble Recruiting Russians 06:13 (GMT) Andrei Morozov (nick-name "Murza"), is an ultranationalist activist from Moscow who heads a small Russian neo-Stalinist nationalist group called "Red Blitzkrieg," among the groups supporting the pro-Russian separatists in southeastern Ukraine as we reported. Morozov travelled to the region and tried to join the "Donetsk People's Republic," but was arrested and tortured by the "militia" for his trouble. Ultimately he was released, and wrote an account on 21 May of his ordeal. Snip On the night of 12th May, without any commentary, I was taken to the dead end of...

  • On this Day in 1962: Infantry Nuke Test

    The USA fired its last above-ground nuclear test at a test site in Nevada on this day, 17 July, in 1962. The operation was a culmination exercise that brought together nuclear warhead tests (code-named Little Feller, as a nod to the W54 warhead’s light weight and low yield) and nuclear weapons employment maneuvers code-named Ivy Flats. The test was a pretty-much full-spectrum test of an actual tactical nuke, and a very unusual one — a nuclear infantry weapon called the Davy Crockett. A lot of tripe is written about the Davy Crockett, including that it could not fire a projectile...

    Imagine your country being invaded by a frightening combination of stealthy military force and mafia/street thugs carrying advanced, high-tech weaponry... yet refusing to wear insignia, produce ID, or even tell the truth re. who they are, where they came from, or what they are doing there. And nobody does anything to stop them, either inside or outside the country. Then the few patriots that do dare to speak-out against the invader's lies and territorial aggression begin to simply disappear... Kiev Post:  Twelve persons, including journalists (and one American), have been kidnapped over the past week in the eastern Ukrainian cities...

    The recent Soviet-er, um, Russian annexation of the Crimea got me reflecting back on my youth. I'm a child of the 1970s and 80s. I'm not ashamed of that either. As I have grown older, I feel that the younger generations have grown soft, complacent, lazy, and unworthy of our 1980s legacy. Ironically our parents felt the same way about us (of course, we proved them wrong.) We had vinyl albums, not because they sounded retro but because that was all we had. Not to brag, but those of us alive in that period - we rocked. Literally. Our music...

    What a shock- a Russian-Ukrainian billionaire who made his initial fortune from dubious stock shares eminating from the breakup of the Soviet Union has been sending big, fat checks this year to establishment Republicans and Democrats who aren't too uppity re. foreign policy.Of course, most billionaire Russians who are part owners of huge Russian mining/energy companies over there are KGB/FSB and/or mafia-connected... just like Putin And London resident Leonard Blavatnik is a typical pro-Putin oligarch, getting rich off looting the Russian state then utilizing that ill-gotten fortune to spread Russian influence around the globe. In this case, Blavatnik made almost 20 BILLION from the Russian oil/mining industries...

    <p>While the NSA is busy justifying its spying of every American its existence thanks to famous Moscow resident Edward Snowden, its Russian counterparts have been busy intercepting even more phone Ukrainian conversations.</p> <p>After a month ago a leaked phone call between US assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland and the US envoy to the Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt confirmed that it was the US that was pulling the strings in what was about to be a violent coup overthrowing Ukraine's president Yanukovich, "someone" has just leaked another phone conversation, this time between parliamentarian Nestor Shufrych and former PM and ideological leader of the Ukraine "revolution" Yulia Tymoshenko and most probable future president of West Ukraine, in which Tymoshenko is makes the following threats, "It’s going too far! Bugger! We must grab arms and go whack those damn katsaps [a Ukrainian word used to refer to the Russians in a negative tone] together with their leader", "I’ll use all my connections, I’ll raise the whole world – as soon as I’m able to – in order to make sure.. Bugger!.. not even scorched earth won’t remain where Russia stands" although all her empty threats collapse in the last sentence of the phone conversation in which she says, regarding the Crimea annexation, that "we are going to take it to the Hague International Criminal Court." Good luck with that.</p>

    US Secretary of State John Kerry chastised Russian President Vladimir Putin for his country’s “unwarranted interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine” and warned that “serious repercussions will be undertaken.” “National sovereignty is a principle that you either respect or don’t,” Kerry lectured Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in high level talks this past week. “Engaging in displays of military strength or actual incursions into a foreign country in order to influence or intimidate its government is not acceptable.” Lavrov questioned Kerry’s sincerity and historical knowledge by alluding to US intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya in recent years and...

      At the new de facto border that's developed on actual mainland Ukraine at Chonhar, Kherson Oblast (not Crimea), VICE journalist/correspondent/filmmaker Simon Ostrovsky attempted to take 'the safest way' into Crimea from Ukraine (train/on foot) yesterday, which required passing both Ukrianian and Russian checkpoints... The Ukrainians were pretty cool, inviting him inside the commander's tank for a brief interview. Although he stated he was of 'Russian blood', the Ukrainian officer made it abundantly clear how little that meant to him in the current confrontation: 'If your are an invader, we will fend off your invasion. It doesn't matter who it is.' He went on...

    If you want to know the back story of the Ukrainian revolution, The Soviet Story tells exactly what happened to Ukraine during the Soviet era - and a lot more.It's the best educational film on the nature of communism, which should be shown to all high school students in America to immunize them against the lure of the “great” utopia. However, I doubt most teachers will do so in today's political climate. This 2008 documentary tells the story of the anti-human ideology the way I see it myself. That was rather surprising, because in today's “progressive” media climate, such...
