What the West Has Done to Syria

The appropriate response to the threat of a world war erupting in Syria is not really fear; it is unmitigated, howling rage at the western sociopaths who created this situation in the first place.

22 People Shot During a Mass Shooting Sunday, But it Doesn’t Fit the Narrative, So Media is Ignoring It

Trenton, New Jersey – Reports of a mass shooting at an arts festival in which at least 22 people were injured may have sounded like the perfect recipe to send anti-gun politicians and mainstream media pundits to their soapboxes to call for increased gun control, but instead, it has quietly disappeared from the headlines, and there are a few notable reasons why.

Serving The 2 Billion Unbanked: A New Trillion Dollar Market

Trump Orders Pentagon To "Immediately Establish A Space Force"

During a press conference Monday, Donald Trump announced that, as he hinted previously, he's ordering the Pentagon to "immediately" establish a "space force" as an independent service branch. That's right: Today might be the day that future generations look back on as the anniversary of the creation of the legendary US Space Force, guardians of intergalactic order.

American Medical Association Calls for Nationwide Ban of All Assault Rifles and High Capacity Guns

In an unusual departure from its historical focus on health and medicine, the American Medical Association (AMA) is now calling for bans, confiscation, and forced registration of guns. Arguably political, the AMA’s proclamation mirrors the strict gun control measures found throughout the United Kingdom, which critics say are blatantly unconstitutional in the United States.

Stone admits he met with a Russian national at a posh Miami restaurant in 2016

Longtime Trump operative and outspoken political pundit Roger Stone recently admitted to members of the special counsel that he now vaguely recalls meeting with a man by the name of Henry Greenberg back in May of 2016, who Stone says wanted $2 million in exchange for heavy dirt on Hillary Clinton during the run-up to the presidential election.

Nothing to see here! Israeli ministers approve ‘unconstitutional’ bill to ban filming of IDF actions

A controversial bill that criminalizes filming IDF soldiers has been advanced by an Israeli government committee. The Israeli Attorney General, however, said it would not withstand a constitutional review in its current form. The Ministerial Committee for Legislation, which determines the coalition government’s position on all pending bills, has green-lighted the legislation, which envisages penalties of up to five years in prison for anyone filming or publishing footage showing Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) with an aim to “harm [soldiers’] spirits.”

How Saudi Arabia Tried to Blame Doctors Without Borders After Bombing Its Cholera Treatment Center

The Saudi embassy in the United States pointed the finger at Doctors Without Borders after the US-backed Saudi coalition bombed the medical humanitarian group’s newly constructed cholera treatment center in Yemen. The Saudi government circulated a misleading fax from a Doctors Without Borders (MSF) employee, to try to absolve itself of responsibility for the airstrike. I contacted MSF for clarification, and the organization said the fax is being misrepresented, and strongly condemned the “unacceptable attack on a medical facility.”

Sicko Cop Arrested for Repeatedly Raping 4yo Girl, Threatening Mom with Deportation if She Told

As the immigration controversy continues to escalate and children are pulled from their mother’s arms to be thrown in cages, psychopaths who abuse their authority are using this time to prey on the weak. One such case of this horrific abuse became evident this week in San Antonio as a police officer was caught repeatedly raping a toddler whilst threatening her undocumented mother with deportation if she spoke up about it.

Iran’s president to visit Switzerland, Austria amid nuclear deal row

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will visit neutral European neighbours Switzerland and Austria next month, the Swiss and Austrian governments said, on a trip overshadowed by the looming imposition of US economic sanctions on Tehran... “Discussions will focus on the latest developments regarding the Iran nuclear agreement,” it added. “The aim is to find ways of preserving the progress made as a result of the agreement and of ensuring the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons in the region despite the decision of the USA to withdraw from it.”

Former Israeli spy chief: Iran’s energy sector, ‘next 9/11 in cyber’

Former chief of an Israeli spy service unit has said that the first cyber target in any future conflict with Iran should be its energy infrastructure. Speaking at a major cyber conference in Israel, former Unit 8200 chief Ehud Schnerosen referred to the energy sector as a “major pillar economy, state’s cardiovascular system.” “We should not attack water, food, healthcare on ethical grounds, and should not attack banks because of the potential butterfly effect,” he said. “The next 9/11 in cyber will be energy sector.”

Russia to Raise Retirement Age Above Male Life Expectancy

Well, here's one way to solve a retirement payout funding crisis. Prime minister Dmitry Medvedev announced last Thursday that the Russian state pension age would be hiked from 60 to 65 for men by 2028 and from 55 to 63 for women by 2034. The World Bank estimates Russian male life expectancy at 66, while the CIA’s World Factbook had it at 65. Women can expect to live to about 77.

FCC, Big Telcos Take Aim At Line Sharing Rules In Bid To Further Hamstring Broadband Competition

So you might recall that part of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the concept of line sharing, or local loop unbundling. Simply, the rules set forth by that law required that incumbent telcos needed to share their networks with smaller competitors, providing wholesale access to bandwidth. It was an effort to foster something vaguely resembling competition in the broadband space by letting smaller companies piggyback on existing network infrastructure. The thought was that because the barriers to market entry were so high, this could help smaller competitors gain footholds that would otherwise be impossible.

He's dying of cancer. Now, he's the first patient to go to trial to argue Roundup made him sick

On bad days, Dewayne Johnson is too crippled to speak. Lesions often cover as much as 80% of his body. Doctors have said they didn't expect him to live to see this day. But Monday marks a milestone: Johnson, 46, is the first of hundreds of cancer patients to see his case against agrochemical giant Monsanto go to trial.

Officer in charge of lost grenades fails his way into cushy new gig

Hey, remember last month when that group of United States Air Force personnel lost a box of grenades? It apparently fell off the back of a vehicle on a public road while the Airmen responsible for the grenades were being transported between one site and another. These are the guys that are responsible for protecting the nation's nuclear weapons sites. Everything's fine! Did I mention that shortly after, it was discovered that a M240 machine gun was discovered to be missing from the same unit's inventory! That's fine too! What makes it fine is that the Air Force relieved the officer responsible for overseeing the unit responsible for all of the missing military swag, Colonel Jason Beers, of his duties. They also outright fired Chief Master Sgt. Nikki Drago--she was the superintendent in charge of the unit at the time that the weapons went missing. When there's a mess, those responsible either have to clean it up, or suffer for it.

Russian Army Gets The Weapons Of The Future Today

Few details are available so far. Like its predecessors, the new vehicle’s armor protection will be equivalent to that of a main battle tank, with armaments allowing it to engage virtually any enemy weapon system or unit and to fire at multiple targets at the same time. Automation makes it possible to reduce the number of crew members from 5 to 3.

WHO to classify 'gaming disorder' as mental health condition

Watching as a video game ensnares their child, many a parent has grumbled about "digital heroin," likening the flashing images to one of the world's most addictive substances. Now, they may have backup: The World Health Organization is set to announce "gaming disorder" as a new mental health condition to be included in the 11th edition of its International Classification of Diseases, set to release Monday.
