US officials are pursuing the ouster of Assad to weaken Syria and create a “chaotic situation” similar to the one in Iraq and Libya after their former leaders were deposed, DeBar argued.

Moscow to seek damages if Mistral helicopter carrier is not delivered by the end of November ~ link ~ Moscow is finally calling France on its Zionist - Globalist leader's refusal to deliver the completed Mistral. The Mistral and its sister ship are state-of-the-art helicopter carriers that the Russian Republic has ALREADY PAID FOR. Contract provisions will require France to pay Russia approximately $3 Billion in non-delivery penalty. One can only wonder if the French Government was delaying the delivery in the expectation that a war is going to break out between NATO and Russia and would thereby get out of the payment penalty.

Russia and France signed a €1.12 billion (US$1.6 billion) deal to build two Mistral helicopter carriers back in June 2011. The contract says that Russia was supposed to receive the first of the two warships, the Vladivostok, in October 2014.
According to the sources, the non-delivery of the two Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia could reach $ 3 billion.

Patriarch Kirill urges Europe to return to Christian values ~ link ~ I agree!!! Stirling

As he received an honorary degree at the University of Belgrade, Patriarch Kirill sounded the alarm over the rapid de-Christianization of European society, which "gave up on the fundamental Christian values in its life and activities.”
Sweden confirms mysterious foreign sub entered its waters back in October ~ link ~ I suspect that this was simply a hoax. One more globalist effort to make Russia look bad. Stirling
Swedish Armed Forces have confirmed that a foreign submarine entered its waters. However, the military failed to determine which country the intruding vessel came from.
“The Swedish Armed Forces now confirm that a submarine violated Swedish territorial integrity. Results from the analysis following the intelligence operation conducted in October are unambiguous,” said a statement.
"Obama's Insurance Policy": Washington chuckles after Republican congressman rules out impeaching Obama because: "Have you met Joe Biden?" ~ link ~ The Globalist/Zionist news media is trying to give the Republicans 'an out' when it comes to impeachment proceedings over the unconstitutional and illegal "executive order" on illegal immigrants by Obama. The reality is, only a few days after the election, the Republicans in Congress are showing that they are just as much Globalist puppets on a string as the Democrats. That there is no real effective difference between either set of political whores and crooks!!! Stirling

Cycles of Inequality ~ link ~
In his book Wealth and Democracy (2002), Kevin Phillips came up with a useful way of thinking about the changing patterns of wealth inequality in the US. He looked at the net wealth of the nation’s median household and compared it with the size of the largest fortune in the US. The ratio of the two figures provided a rough measure of wealth inequality, and that’s what he tracked, touching down every decade or so from the turn of the 19th century all the way to the present. In doing so, he found a striking pattern.From 1800 to the 1920s, inequality increased more than a hundredfold. Then came the reversal: from the 1920s to 1980, it shrank back to levels not seen since the mid-19th century. Over that time, the top fortunes hardly grew (from one to two billion dollars; a decline in real terms). Yet the wealth of a typical family increased by a multiple of 40. From 1980 to the present, the wealth gap has been on another steep, if erratic, rise. Commentators have called the period from 1920s to 1970s the ‘great compression’. The past 30 years are known as the ‘great divergence’. Bring the 19th century into the picture, however, and one sees not isolated movements so much as a rhythm. In other words, when looked at over a long period, the development of wealth inequality in the US appears to be cyclical. And if it’s cyclical, we can predict what happens next.
