Russian resources and assets: enough to make the greedy imperialist choke on their silva

​Diamond worth $430,000 found in Russia: "A diamond weighing 76.07 carats was mined by Russia’s Alrosa, one of the world's largest producers of diamonds. The company plans to put the rare gem up for auction at a price of more than $430,000."

Ukrainian delusion: financial downpour from EU

Ukraine’s hope for financial downpour from EU fails to come true: "'Indeed, what did they hope for at all?' she [deputy director of the Economics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Svetlana Glinkina] asks. 'Apparently, on political support: the European Union does agree to provide financial support, but not a very big one, against certain conditions and requirements, including drastic cuts in government and public spending. If the requirements fail to be met, nobody will agree to give anything for free. No presents from the European Union can be hoped for.'"

No surprise here: US Military personnel thievery in Iraq and Afghanistan at Least $50 mil.

US Military Personnel Stole at Least $50M During Iraq and Afghanistan Wars: "At least 115 enlisted military personnel deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan have been convicted since 2005 for committing theft, bribery, and contract rigging crimes which have totalled more than $52 million in damages."

Sorry Hillary: State Dept. doesn't allow private email accounts for official business.

State Dept. contradicts Hillary on emails: "A US State Department official has described Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account for official business as unacceptable, contradicting earlier statements by the former secretary of state in which she claimed that it was “allowed” by the department."

The difference here is that between professional state department personnel and the always transient political appointees.

You live in a police state; Bill of Rights - historical piece of paper.

In a Cop Culture, the Bill of Rights Doesn’t Amount to Much: According to John W. Whitehead, quoting Oakland police chief Sean Whent, “In a democratic society people have a say in how they are policed.” But,

Book: Hollande during EU 2012 embargo admits to arming Syrian rebels

Hollande admits arming Syrian rebels in breach of embargo - book: "The French president has admitted delivering weapons to the Syrian rebels during a period of EU embargo, a new book about to be published in France reveals."

International law has little meaning to lawbreakers when it is the West breaking the law, but the same people get all aroused and excited when they want to claim (without proof) that Russia is supplying weapons to militants fighting against their government.

US spreading democracy: 38 million people displaced worldwide.

Record 38m people displaced worldwide’: "A record 38 million people across the globe are displaced inside their own homelands due to conflicts and violence, with Iraq being the hardest-hit nation, a watchdog group reveals."

Propaganda mirror - West needs to see their reflection before pointing fingers

Crying Wolf: Western Hawks Invent Myths of Russia's Baltic Advance: "Instead of blaming the Kremlin for aggravating tensions between Russia and the Baltic states, Western hawks should just look in the mirror, Neil Clark noted, adding that "crude Russophobia" demonstrated by some politicians is inexcusable." The original article is here: ​The Russians aren’t coming! How & why hawks hype ‘threat’ to Baltic States.

Secret: Keystone 1 pipeline major corrosion

Pipeline Problems: Keystone 1 Damaged by Major Corrosion - Reports: "A section of the Keystone 1 pipeline had to be shut down after just 2 years because of corrosion - the wall had corroded by 95% in one section - but both TransCanada and US federal regulators are keeping the cause of the damage secret, the DeSmogBlog reports."

New York no corruption here, well just a bit, maybe a lot - but it is the charm of NY State

New York Official Took Bribes for Fracking Favors - US Attorney: "Though fracking was banned in New York State in 2014, a new case filed by federal prosecutors on Monday brings allegations against the state’s senate majority leader. It’s a bizarre case, blending code words, wiretaps, bribery, and nepotism, all under the distorting haze of shale gas."

It is an amazing story. A head shaker. Selfish greed. As long as I have been alive, New York has had corruption problems. And New York city - a city of greed and selflessness. How they co-exist is a mystery.

The liberation of Auschwitz - HD - Brutal, disturbing and distressing images!

"This award-winning documentary contains all known film footage, the Soviet cameramen filmed after the liberation of Auschwitz between 27 January and 28 February 1945. In order to preserve the authenticity of the documents, cruel images are even shown without cuts and dispenses with noise and music synchronization."

It is 52 minutes - but you owe it to the survivors to watch.

RT’s journalist threaten with death and arrest

RT’s Paula Slier leaves Ukraine following call for her arrest, death threats: "RT correspondent Paula Slier, who covered the fire near the Chernobyl nuclear station, has left Ukraine after a local journalist urged security services to detain her. Some commentators were calling for the RT reporter’s death."

Moldova: When nations are poor there is a reason for it - corruption

Someone stole $1B from Moldova — an eighth of its GDP: "When thousands filled the streets of Moldova's capital Sunday in the little country's largest protest in years, their complaint was pretty significant.

Late last year, about $1 billion disappeared in an apparent banking scandal that's mystified Europe's poorest country

Baltimore riots a slap in face of preacher of human rights - the US

Baltimore riots a slap in face of human rights preacher: "The Baltimore riot deals a heavy blow to the US which claims to be the guardian of the world's human rights issue. If such a riot takes place in China or Russia, Western opinion is expected to make a fuss of it. But the Baltimore riot shows that the US is probably the one that uses force the most frequently toward protesters. The US has no license to blame other countries."

Texas idiocy - US takeover of Texas

‘Texas Ranger’ Chuck Norris Warns of Military Takeover in Lone Star State: "It’s not entirely clear how the federal government would, hypothetically, invade a US state. The Texas legislature, governor, and judiciary all operate beneath the broader umbrella of Washington, just as all states do. A US military invasion of its own territory would make no sense. It would accomplish nothing. It would be worthless, the political equivalent of a bored dog gnawing on his own foot."

Obama's new foundation for helping young minority men

My Brother's Keeper: Obama announces new foundation for helping young minority men: "In an emotionally charged speech at Lehman College in the New York borough of the Bronx, Barack Obama announced the creation of a separate nonprofit called ‘My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.’ Obama’s remarks suggested he intended to focus on the project throughout the remainder of his presidency and beyond."

Horse pucky: Administration wary about Saudi campaign in Yemen

Administration Worries Grow over Saudi Campaign in Yemen | Military.com: "The Obama administration is growing increasingly wary about the Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen and how to restore peace to a country wracked by sectarian divisions, endemic poverty and the al-Qaida offshoot posing the greatest threat to the American homeland."

As if it is the Saudis campaign. The US is not the acknowledged leader, but it is their intelligence and their weapons that has precipitated the illegal bombing. The US is hiding in the shadows, because it would be difficult internationally and domestically for the US to step out into the light.

US controls UK Tridents - that is why Tridents remain in Scotland

Illusory Independence: US Controls British Nuclear Arsenal: "Indeed, although Trident is presented as "a purely domestic matter," the point is that British nuclear weapons as well as sophisticated Trident technology are provided directly by Washington or manufactured in accordance with American designs. Furthermore, Britain's nuclear sites are controlled by the US companies Lockheed Martin and Halliburton. "

Irony - England the vassal of the US.

Victory Day - Russia

Victory Day - Russia. An excellent presentation mixing text and videos about WWII and Russia's role. The suffering and devastation was unmatched, except maybe for the United States dropping the atomic bomb. It is difficult to absolve the US of that. Retrospectively, you can't.

Russian child adoption by US Citizens another area of concern for Russia.

World Tends to Reject Child Adoption by US Citizens – Russian Ombudsman: "Over the period 2005–2014 there had been no or almost no US adoptions from such countries as Argentina, Cambodia, Moldova, Nepal, Ghana, Rwanda and Vietnam, Russian Commissioner for Children's Rights said."

Poland - an ungrateful country - 'forgets' lessons of WWII

Russia Slams Polish President's Remarks on Victory Day Parade in Moscow: "If not for the tanks mentioned by the president of Poland, Poland would not exist now on the world map. I must remind you that, according to the Nazi plans, Poland was supposed to be a territory that Germany was preparing for the resettlement of the German population. Others were supposed to be expelled and destroyed. And only due to Russian tanks they [Poland] gained their freedom and sovereignty."

Wrong question: It should be will Israel attack Iran?

Kerry Rules Out Iranian Attack on Israel After Nuclear Deal: "US Secretary of State John Kerry assured Sunday that the nuclear deal with Iran does not endanger Israel, amid Jerusalem's concerns that Tehran will develop a nuclear weapon." But does the 'nuclear deal' endanger Iran?

Polls - a way to manipulate the narrative - it is propaganda.

Americans support drone strikes against terrorists – poll: "About 60 percent of Americans support the use of drones to kill terrorists overseas, a new poll conducted on behalf of the Associated Press found. However, respondents were not asked whether civilian casualties affected their approval."

Justice is a long way off in Baltimore (and the US).

Baltimore rioter slapped with $500k bail as cops charged in Freddie Gray murder walk free: An 18-year-old Baltimore rioter who smashed a police car window during heated protests against the death of Freddie Gray, and then turned himself in, has been set a bail of $500,000 – more than any of the six police officers charged in Gray’s murder case.

You see if a police officer is charged with murder of a black man - his bail is far less than that of a black man that is charged with damage to a police car.


Australia toughens property ownership - Chinese the target?

Australia toughens property ownership: "Australia has devised new punitive measures to enforce the restrictions set for the foreigners who violate the country’s law on the purchase of real estate." The Australian PM wants foreign investment, but not in existing residential property. Although the article doesn't state it, it appears the law is aimed at Chinese investments. It is safe to say that Australia under this PM has not had good relations with China.

What kind of people use cluster bombs - S. Arabia, US.

​S. Arabia bombs Yemen with US-supplied cluster bombs – HRW: "The Saudi Arabia-led coalition is using US-supplied cluster munitions in its airstrikes on Houthi forces in Yemen, Human Rights Watch reported. Targets include those close to villages, posing a threat from undetonated submunitions to civilians."  See Cluster munition.

General Breedlove (Breedwar) is a prime example of the military set loose by civilian leadership.

General Pushing US to Expand Ukraine War Sign Politics & Military Don't Mix: "The bellicose and highly politicized commentary of General Philip Breedlove regarding Ukraine is dangerous proof of the consequences of a breakdown of the division between civilian government and the military, says Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute."

Iran asserting its interest in Yemen

‘No more playing with our shared security’: Iran warns it will stand up for Yemen: "Iran has made clear it will not let Yemen fall into chaos at the hands of regional actors’ 'military adventures.' The two have shared security interests, its top diplomat said, slamming lack of condemnation of Saudi aggression as 'unacceptable.'

Austria stepping up to the plate - rejects US extradition demand

Austria rejects US extradition demand: "A court in Austria has rejected the US demand to extradite Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash over graft charges." The court added that it "was under “'no political influence” and issued the verdict “on a legal and factual basis; that the US demand lacked substantial evidence. Lastly, "Christina Salzborn, the court spokeswoman, said the US lawsuit against the 49-year-old billionaire was 'also politically motivated.'"

Russia-China Alliance: It is why the US is frighten

Blooming Bromance: Russia-China Alliance Challenges US-Designed World Order: "Beijing and Moscow have increasingly found common basis in challenging the US and Western dominated order in Europe and Asia." There have been "a number of deals to strengthen their military, financial and political ties in recent times." And together they are "challenging the US and Western dominated order in Europe and Asia."

Face to face: Afghan Government and Taliban. It is a good start.

Afghan Government to Hold Face-to-Face Talks with Taliban in Qatar: "An international peace council is bringing together an Afghanistan delegation and representatives of the Taliban over the next few days to hold “open discussions” about ending the war in Afghanistan."

Homicide: Freddie Gray's death. Pressure of protests brought about this 1st step.

Freddie Gray's death ruled 'homicide', charges against all 6 officers involved: "Maryland State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby announced criminal charges against all six police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray, which she declared "a homicide" and “an illegal arrest.” She also said the knife Gray was carrying was legal."

There isn't room for debate - the political effect of the protests, Baltimore and others, insured that there was not to be any cover up. We will see where it goes from here - but the start is correct.

What is the NATO word for idiot? Breedlove, more apt name Breedwar.

Independence Supporters in South East Ukraine Follow Russian Orders - NATO: "NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Philip Breedlove claims that independence fighters of the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (DPR and LPR) in southeastern Ukraine are under Russian command." Of course he may not have meant to say that.

Ukraine, Yemen rank # 2 in killed journalists. It is Ukraine - so they are going for #1.

Ukraine, Yemen rank second in number of killed journalists — Press Emblem Campaign: "A total of 51 journalists have been killed in 20 countries since the beginning of 2015. The list is topped by Libya where 8 journalists have been killed .Yemen and Ukraine take second place, with four journalists killed in each of the two countries. In the case of Ukraine, three of these were targeted killings, the Press Emblem Campaign (PEC) Swiss non-governmental organization advocating the rights of journalists in trouble spots said on Thursday in Geneva."

US just can't keep from interfering in the affairs of China - arrogance.

Beijing Slams White House Over WWII Military Parade Criticism: "China's Defense Ministry on Thursday spurned a top White House adviser [Evan Medeiros] who expressed doubts about China’s upcoming military parade, which is planned for September to mark the end of the Second World War."

125,000 tourists may visit Crimea for May holidays. If you believe US and Ukraine propaganda - this can't be

Over 125,000 tourists to come to Crimea for May holidays: "Over 125,000 tourists may visit Crimea for May holidays, which is 9,000 more than in the same period in 2014, Crimean Tourism Minister Yelena Yurchenko said Thursday."

And Ukraine is doing its best to deter Ukrainians from visiting Crimea. Sort of odd from their perspective, isn't it? Ukraine preventing Ukrainians from visiting Ukraine.

I wonder what is Ukrainian word for idiot? Oh - Poroshenko.

War in Ukraine Will Be Over After Kiev Regains Crimea, Donbas - Poroshenko: "Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that the military operation in Ukraine would be stopped when Kiev regained control of Crimea and Donbas territories."

And you have this bit of denial by the Ukrainian government on Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev trip to Crimea:

Freddie Gray injured during police transportation

Freddie Gray not injured during arrest, slammed inside van - report: "The preliminary autopsy on Freddie Gray shows no evidence that his fatal injuries ‒ broken vertebrae and an injured voice box ‒ occurred during his arrest. It does show that he likely received a head injury while being transported, local WJLA reported."

Japan still can't say "sorry" for WWII.

US Dems slam Japanese PM speech: "Several US Democrats have showed anger and discontent with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s speech at Congress for refusing to apologize his country’s enslavement of tens of thousands of women during the Second World War." Don't expect Republicans to agree.

Veterans - we appreciate your service (not)

University of Fla. Suspends Frat over Abuse of Wounded Vets | Military.com: "The University of Florida suspended one of its fraternities on Friday after allegations that its members hurled drunken insults and spat at a group of disabled military veterans at a Panama City Beach resort."

If the US cannot even say the word (drones), how can we expect the truth?

The Word That Cannot Be Uttered (It's Drones) - The Intercept: This is what happens when there is no accountability.
"President Obama has chosen to operate his drone war in such unprecedented, absurd and arguably illegal secrecy that even in a rare burst of compelled transparency yesterday, neither he nor his press secretary could actually bring themselves to say the word 'drone.'”

Obama: Baltimore violence counter-productive. But that assumes that something productive was occurring

Obama blames 'thugs' for US riots: There is surely some truth that there are those taking advantage of the situation for nefarious goals - that is true in every protest. It is always necessary to separate them out, but journalist consistently fail to do that looking more to the headlines, or in today's world - looking for clicks.

Maryland gov: Acts of violence not tolerated (except for the police).

It is too bad that the governor of Maryland didn't have the same attitude towards the police. There is a righteous cause that fostered the riots. Of course there are those who will take advantage for their own personal gain, but that should not condemn the protests.

The message is clear to many - the police can kill, main, harass, and whatever with impunity. But the police, and the state, rather than make things right, go with what got them there - violence.

It is also not unexpected that the police would use the media to claim without proof "that various prison and street gangs entered a partnership to “take-out (sic) law enforcement officers.” The sole purpose is to lay the ground work for more violence against the black community.

Nevermind that the gangs would not exist if it were not for Baltimore's racial division. Anyone who has lived there (me) or near there knows the division is kept in tact in part by the police.

In 2013 63% of the Baltimore population was Black or African American. 23% of Baltimore population are below the poverty level. Black unemployment in the Baltimore - Towson area in 2011 was 13%.. Although there are some indications that it had improved to 10%. That is about double the white unemployment.

But this is about the race relations between the police who are to protect and serve the black and minority communities as well as they do the white community. Black people do not have trust in the police force and the police force gives them no reason to expect trust.

People without the opportunities of jobs and education, living at the poverty level, cannot be expected to be the 'good citizens' that white people see as themselves.

The rewriting of Vietnam War American style via entertainment

Vietnam Historians Challenge New US Film Portraying 'Last Days' of War: "Vietnamese historians criticized a new Oscar-nominated film about the withdrawal of US forces from South Vietnam for historical inaccuracies." Sin of omission. The film focuses on the "rescue" of South Vietnamese people and does not show the devastating impact that the war had on Vietnam and its population. E.g.,:

Russia’s Great Patriotic War legacy must be remembered

Russia’s legacy in WWII can’t be forgotten: "Some time ago I received a letter from my American friend who was curious why Russians are so keen on "our glorious past." One of the reasons is that WWII, or the Great Patriotic War as it is called in Russia and unfortunately no more in my second native country Ukraine, left its deep trace in Russia. In each Russian family there is somebody who fought, died or was wounded during WWII. The war is still in our hearts and minds."

CIA paid Chilean media mogul to smear Allende. Gee who would have thought.

Pinochet-Era Chilean Media Mogul Was a CIA Propagandist - Journalist Union: "United States documents show that the CIA paid a Chilean media mogul to smear President Salvador Allende in the run-up to the September 11, 1973, military coup in which Allende died, the country’s journalist union alleges."  [Reference: Augusto Pinochet’s CIA-backed coup against Salvador Allende: Chile’s 9/11 anniversary still divides the country.]

F-35: acquisition malpractice

F-35 Engines Deemed Unreliable by Government Accountability Office: "This will make a headline if I say it, but I'm going to say it anyway," Frank Kendall, a top Pentagon official, said in 2012. "Putting the F-35 into production years before the first test flight was acquisition malpractice. It should not have been done." Three years later he is still correct.


US in Iraq linked to the rise of Al Qaeda and ISIL in Iraq

So says former president Bush and present president Obama. The difference is who is telling the story or who is laying the blame. Obama blames Bush because of the invasion and Bush blames Obama because he withdrew troops too soon. But they don't differ on the origins of Al Qaeda and ISIL in Iraq. [White House blasts George W. Bush].

France hoisted on its own petard - the Mistrals

Caught in Limbo: French Navy Has No Use for Extra Mistrals, Looks to Moscow: "The French Navy hopes the Mistral deal between Paris and Moscow works out and the Russians get to have their two helicopter carriers, as the French marines don’t want two extra Mistrals at their disposal."

Stupidity flows from the mouth of Ukrainian PM

Ukrainian to Become Official EU Language – PM Yatsenyuk: "Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said the Ukrainian language might become one of the official languages of the EU."

Just how many people converse in the Ukrainian language? How does that compare to the official languages used at the UN? "What are the official languages of the United Nations?

Idiotic: US ready to defend Japan, it will use nuclear weapons

US Ready to Use Nuclear, Conventional Weapons to Defend Japan: "According to a joint statement released on Monday, the US is ready to use nuclear and conventional weapons to defend Japan."

Did I miss something - has some country threaten Japan? Why would anyone want Japan? What does it offer?  As I remember - and it is odd that the US threat comes so close to the celebration of the end of WWII - it was Japan that was the aggressor. And there is every reason to believe that its aggressiveness hasn't been satiated.

An attempt by the US to embolden Japan to more mischief.

To avoid civil unrest - govt must kill their own citizens and burn them near a road

Burn, Kill, Bury: Czech Diplomat Condones Slaughter of 48 in Odessa: "To avoid civil unrest, a government must kill its own citizens and burn them near a road, said Vaclav Bartuska, the Czech Republic’s energy envoy." Something one might attribute to Hitler.

One and only 10Gen uranium enrichment centrifuges

Russia 1st to test 10Gen uranium enrichment centrifuges: "Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear agency, confirms scientists are testing 10th generation centrifuges. No other country even possesses 9th gen tech, putting Rosatom years ahead of the competition."

There is a neat diagram and a video concerning uranium enrichment.
