European observers have said violence marred the run-up to polls in Turkey in which the Justice and Development Party (AKP) regained its majority. The OSCE said that an increase in violence, particularly in the south-east, "restricted some contestants' ability to campaign freely".
Putin orders the stockpiling of nuclear protective equipment ~ link ~ While the Russians have always had some serious civil defense measures for nuclear war, America's fell apart in the late 1960s and was never replaced. Americans, and many people in other NATO nations, are totally defenseless in the event of a nuclear war. Of course, the leadership will be protected but not the citizens. If you have ever been in the Moscow subway system, which is very deep, you can understand that they made it so deep as a defense against nuclear weapons. The Globalist/Zionist jerks that are driving the world towards WWIII do NOT intend that most of us live through it!!! Stirling
According to the government website, Putin told the council that it was important to review and potentially strengthen Russia's defence protocols against "nuclear, radiological, chemical and biological threats, both in peacetime, and—God forbid, of course—in wartime."
"We have to analyse to what extent they correspond to the realities of today and, if the need arises, make the required revisions," Putin said.
Advanced Russian jamming system blocks all NATO military electronics over Syria ~ link ~
From the combat zone in northern Syria comes news of the deployment of a new Russian electronic jamming system which can reportedly blind radar, disrupt electronic guidance systems, and interfere with satellite imagery as well.This latest revelation follows the earlier report of the Russian cruiser mounted S-300 missile defense system deployed in the shore of Latakia. Both of these systems amount to what NATO’s supreme commander General Philip Breedlove described as the Russian A2/AD (anti-access/area denial) bubble in Syria, writes OSNet Daily. As a result, NATO is effectively blinded inside a bubble of 600 km in diameter centered on the Russian base at Latakia, reports, Thierry Meyssan from Damascus.
Crisis in Europe: German schools have been told to abolish a Christian Festival to avoid offending Muslim 'migrants' ~ link ~
After months of a mounting rhetorical war, the United States has conductеd a patrol through the South China Sea. On Tuesday the guided missile destroyer USS Lassen transited the area, sailing within 12 nautical miles of at least two China-made islands [technical info: entered waters near islands and reefs in the Spratlys]. A Chinese guided-missile destroyer and a naval patrol ship shadowed and gave warnings to the U.S. warship.
Then China’s Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui summoned U.S. Ambassador Max Baucus, lodging “serious representations” and expressing “strong discontent” over a U.S. warship patrol. Beijing’s attitude was that the US “threatened China’s sovereignty and security interests”. In turn, Washington has demonstrated with this action that it rejects China’s claim that the built islands mark Chinese territorial waters.
Russian airliner crash - Bomb on board? ~ link ~ It is VERY rare for modern airlines to break apart, or even crash, from cruising altitude. Stirling
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang traveled to Seoul to meet South Korean President Park Geun-hye, holding two hours of talks. Park and Abe both met separately with Li before their joint discussions. Park is scheduled to meet with the Japanese leader today in what will be their first bilateral summit since they each took office.
Significantly, no mention was made publicly of US actions in the South China Sea or the ongoing territorial dispute between Beijing and Tokyo in the East China Sea over the rocky outcrops known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in China.
Violence against Syrian asylum seekers spiked over the weekend with police Sunday reporting three different attacks in which six Syrian refugees had to be treated for injuries in the hospital.Two of the attacks, in Wismar and Magdeburg, were committed by groups of more than 20 persons who harassed and beat asylum seekers with baseball bats on Saturday.
What are the REAL Objectives of the US Boots on the Ground in Syria ~ link ~
There is a real danger that US Special Forces deployed in Syria and embedded with the new Arab-Kurdish force will coordinate the tactics and strategy of the terrorists (also known as "moderate rebels") on the ground, US geopolitical analyst Eric Draitser told Sputnik.The US war planners have decided that they need "boots on the ground" in Syria aimed at creating a quagmire for Russia in much the same way it did for the USSR in Afghanistan in the 1980s, geopolitical analyst and StopImperialism.org editor Eric Draitser underscores.
More than 25 million people live in the vicinity of North America’s 2nd-highest volcano, and in recent weeks this volcano has been steadily rumbling and has been spewing out massive amounts of black smoke and ash. I have previously written about “the most dangerous mountain in the United States” (Mt. Rainier), but if the volcano that I am talking about today experiences a full-blown explosive eruption it could potentially be a cataclysmic event beyond what most of us would dare to imagine. Popocatepetl is an Aztec word that means “smoking mountain”, and it is also the name of a giant volcano that sits approximately 50 miles away from Mexico City’s 18 million residents. “Popo”, as it is called by locals, was dormant for much of the 20th century, but it came back to life in 1994. And now all of this unusual activity in recent weeks has many wondering if a major eruption may be imminent.
Historians tell us that Popocatepetl had a dramatic impact on the ancient Aztecs. Giant mud flows produced by massive eruptions covered entire Aztec cities. In fact, some of these mud flows were so large that they buried entire pyramids in super-heated mud.
Obama the $20 TRILLION Dollar Man ~ link ~ If you want to know what is really going on and who is doing it, it is very simple just FOLLOW THE MONEY!!! Obama is a puppet for the Globalists and Zionists and this $20 trillion in debt is profit for the Globalists!!! Stirling
Mr. Obama’s spending agreement with Congress will suspend the nation’s debt limit and allow the Treasury to borrow another $1.5 trillion or so by the end of his presidency in 2017. Added to the current total national debt of more than $18.15 trillion, the red ink will likely be crowding the $20 trillion mark right around the time Mr. Obama leaves the White House.
When Mr. Obama took over in January 2009, the total national debt stood at $10.6 trillion. That means the debt will have very nearly doubled during his eight years in office, and there is much more debt ahead with the abandonment of “sequestration” spending caps enacted in 2011.
