JERUSALEM: Israel held out the prospect on Tuesday of eventual contacts with Syria under President Bashar Assad, in a nod to his regime-consolidating advances in a seven-year-old civil war that Israeli officials had initially predicted would topple him.
Assad’s Russia-backed forces have advanced in southwest Syria and are on course to reach Quneitra, a rebel-held district abutting the Golan Heights frontier with Israel. That has stirred Israeli concern that he may try to deploy troops there in defiance of a 1974 UN demilitarization accord on the Golan.

          Пенсионная реформа в России: порядка 60 регионов направили положительный отзыв      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 

Как стало известно, 19 июля состоится рассмотрение в первом чтении проекта закона об изменениях, вносимых в пенсионное законодательство РФ.

Документ стал итогом инициативы правительства РФ по увеличению пенсионного возраста – для женщин с 55 до 63 лет, а для мужчин – с 60 до 65 лет.

Данную инициативу можно назвать своевременной, поскольку демографическая ситуация в России такова, что в настоящий момент на одного пенсионера приходится лишь два работающих гражданина, в то время как в 1970-е годы – приходилось четыре человека. Всему виной – демографическая яма 1990-х годов.

Данные изменения будут претворяться в жизнь поэтапно. Повышение возраста для мужчин будет проходить в течение 10 лет – до 2028 года, а для женщин – в течение 16 лет, до 2034 года.

Мужчины 1959 года рождения и женщины 1964 года станут первыми, кто попадает под эти изменения. Для них выход на пенсию сдвинется на год – на 61 год и 56 лет. Одним словом, каждый год к пенсионному возрасту будет добавляться 1 год.

Накануне состоялось «нулевое чтение» в Общественной палата, в рамках которого были озвучены позиции общественных палат российских регионов относительно изменения в пенсионном законодательстве.

Необходимо отметить, что регионы поддержали инициативу правительства по проведению пенсионной реформы – об этом сообщил Максим Топилин, министр труда и социальной защиты РФ:

«По нашей информации, положительные отзывы на законопроект о повышении пенсионного возраста направили в нижнюю палату парламента органы власти 61 региона».

Как заметил министр, до подачи документов «есть почти целая неделя», поэтому региональные отзывы относительно документа продолжают поступать.

19 июля состоится рассмотрение законопроекта об увеличении пенсионного возраста. Перед чтением в Госдуме РФ проект был направлен на отзыв в российские регионы, которые положительно восприняли инициативу кабинета министров.

Potential Nominee Profile: Brett Kavanaugh

SCOTUSblog, June 2018

SCOTUSblog’s profile of Kavanaugh provides a comprehensive summary of the judge’s background, from his upbringing in the Washington area to his college and law school years at Yale to his prestigious positions in various parts of the federal government. As the profile notes, Kavanaugh was a law clerk for Kennedy, whom he has been nominated to replace. The piece offers a highlight reel of Kavanaugh’s time on the federal appeals court in Washington. Ultimately, the article concludes, Kavanaugh “brings a pragmatic approach to judging,” albeit with a serious conservative bent.

Brett Kavanaugh, a Conservative Stalwart in Political Fights and on the Bench

New York Times, July 2018

The New York Times’ Adam Liptak examines Kavanaugh’s personal and professional history. The profile depicts Kavanaugh as a decidedly conservative Washington insider but hardly a rank partisan. He’s known as a nuanced and careful thinker, and although his judicial opinions are often lauded by voices on the right, he has shied away from absolutist positions, at times to the chagrin of conservatives. He has “formed lifelong friendships with liberals, many of whom praise his intellect and civility,” and those who worked with him before he became a judge described him as “often a moderating force.”

Kavanaugh Paper Chase Threatens to Draw Out Confirmation Battle

Politico, July 2018

Kavanaugh’s nomination “presents a band of government archivists and White House officials with a herculean task: wading through what could be millions of pages of records” ahead of his confirmation hearings. The paper trail leads back to the two years Kavanaugh spent in Bush’s White House Counsel’s Office and another three years he spent as Bush’s staff secretary. Politico’s Josh Gerstein takes a look at how the extensive documentation of Kavanaugh’s executive branch career could slow the judge’s confirmation process.

Trump’s Supreme Court Frontrunner Is the “Forrest Gump of Republican Politics”

Mother Jones, June 2018

This Mother Jones profile casts Kavanaugh as a consummate insider of the D.C. conservative establishment who “frequently inserted himself into high-profile political battles.” Kavanaugh worked on the team of Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. He represented the Miami relatives of Elian Gonzalez in a high-profile immigration dispute in 2000, in which they sought to keep the Cuban boy in the United States. He worked on George W. Bush’s legal team during the contentious 2000 presidential election recount in Florida — and went on to oversee judicial nominations in Bush’s White House Counsel’s Office. His ubiquity earned him the nickname the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics.”

How Four Potential Nominees Would Change the Supreme Court

FiveThirtyEight, July 2018

FiveThirtyEight draws on a tool to measure judicial ideology developed by legal scholars and political scientists to assess Kavanaugh’s potential effect on the Supreme Court’s jurisprudential makeup. The conclusion: a Justice Kavanaugh “would likely represent a reliably conservative voice and vote on the high court”—“to the right of Gorsuch and Justice Samuel Alito, and just to the left of the arch conservative Justice Clarence Thomas.” That would leave Chief Justice John Roberts as the “new median justice.” FiveThirtyEight adds a caveat, however, about the metric it’s relying on: it’s based on the ideology of the politicians who nominated a judge—in this case, Bush—rather than the judge’s rulings.

Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Front-Runner, Once Argued Broad Grounds for Impeachment

The New York Times, July 2018

The Times’ Mark Landler and Matt Apuzzo take a look at Kavanaugh’s time on Starr’s team — and its implications for Trump. Starr’s report as independent counsel, which Kavanaugh co-wrote, argues that lying to staff members and misleading the public are grounds to impeach a president for obstruction of justice. That “broad definition of obstruction of justice,” Landler and Apuzzo write, “would be damaging if applied to President Trump in the Russia investigation.”

Top Supreme Court Prospect Has Argued Presidents Should Not Be Distracted by Investigations and Lawsuits

The Washington Post, June 2018

The Washington Post examines a 2009 law review article in which Kavanaugh argued that a sitting president shouldn’t have to deal with “time-consuming and distracting” lawsuits and investigations. The distraction “would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis,” Kavanaugh wrote. That, the Post notes, “puts him on the record regarding a topic of intense interest to Trump — and could be a central focus of his confirmation hearing.”

Holding Court

The New Yorker, March 2012

In this comment, Jeffrey Toobin describes Kavanaugh as a judge in thrall to partisan politics. Toobin characterizes Kavanaugh’s work as an appeals judge as “startling.” He accuses Kavanaugh of “pandering to the base” in a dissenting opinion he wrote in a case challenging Obamacare. Kavanaugh “appeared to offer some advice to the Republicans who are challenging Obama in the election,” Toobin wrote — whatever courts hold, a Republican president could simply decline to enforce the health-care law because he deems it unconstitutional.

Leading Contender to Be Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Faces Questions from Social Conservatives

The Washington Post, July 2018

The Washington Post’s Robert Acosta and Josh Dawsey survey conservative misgivings about Kavanaugh’s record on the federal appeals court in Washington. Where Toobin saw Kavanaugh as a right-wing partisan, many social conservatives fear he’s not enough of a hardliner. The conservative response to the White House floating Kavanaugh’s name included “a clamor from those who see him as out of step on health care and abortion, or too tied to George W. Bush’s White House.” The concerns arise from opinions Kavanaugh wrote in cases challenging the Affordable Care Act and in a recent case over the right of an immigrant teenager in federal custody to have an abortion. The judge dissented in those cases, but did not go as far as “ideological purists” would have liked.

Federal Judge Downplayed Role in Detainee Cases

NPR, June 2007

NPR’s Ari Shapiro reported on what some Democratic senators saw as misleading testimony Kavanaugh provided during his 2006 confirmation hearing to become a federal appeals judge in Washington. Kavanaugh had told Sen. Richard Durbin, D.-Illinois, that during his time in the Bush White House he was not involved in conversations about the rules governing the handling of detainees captured in the War on Terror. In fact, he had been involved in 2002 discussions about whether detainees had a right to an attorney. Durbin told NPR he felt “perilously close to being lied to.” (Kavanaugh, through a court spokesman, called his testimony accurate.)

Expectations should be kept at a minimum. The U.S. and Russia have conflicting interests when it comes to many of the major geopolitical issues of the day, and this is unlikely to change anytime soon. Trump should use this meeting to address some serious issues with his Russian counterpart. For one, he must make clear to Putin that U.S. policy remains that Crimea is part of Ukraine, not Russia. Crimea legally belongs to Ukraine and since 2014 Russia has been occupying the peninsula unlawfully.

          SUBURGATORY's Laura Liguori Stars In New Play      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Actress Laura Liguori takes on the role of a Russian poet's enigmatic muse in a true life story of 1930s Russia in the play MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN will premiere at 8 p.m. on July 21 at the Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90038. It will run through Aug. 19.

With a multi-media approach, MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN will feature more than 300 images and videos projected on screens across the stage, recalling the tumultuous Stalin era of Soviet Russia. Adding to the live performances and imagery is the compelling score of composer John Zalewski.

Written and directed by critically acclaimed American playwright Murray Mednick, MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN tells the parallel stories of Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky and his married lover and muse, Lilya Brik (played by Liguori) and of Russian dictator Joseph Stalin (played by Maury Sterling of "Homeland") and his wife Nadya. Lilya, an actress, convinced Stalin to restore Mayakovsky (played by Daniel Dorr) to the canon of accepted Soviet poets, only to see the political repercussions of Nadya's suicide at a state dinner where she renounced Stalin's policies.

"I am currently reading the actual love letters written between Mayakovsky and Lilya- they were truly soul mates, incarnates of each other, artists, people who lived freely and deeply despite the horror around them," said Liguori who starred in Mednick's "The Gary Plays" last year. "This is a beautiful play, and the cast is just outstanding! It's an honor to play Lilya- she was a true feminist, she lived according to her terms, no-one dictated to her, a beautiful spitfire of a soul."

For his part, Mednick welcomed working with Liguori once again after the success of "The Gary Plays" last year: "Laura Liguori has the perfect combination of intelligence, insouciance, and fearlessness for the role of Lilyana. It's like she channels something. Liguori is open to the spirit of the person she is playing. It's hard to describe. That's her talent and this type of talent is very good for my plays."

Liguori comes to MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN after her work in Tania Wisbar's 2017 critically-acclaimed World War II play "The Red Dress," where she portrayed a famous German actress at odds with the Nazi regime. She had previously earned praise for her work as Marilyn Monroe in "Marilyn, Madness and Me."

"I am very drawn to strong, brave, complex characters who must battle to overcome severe life challenges she said. "It's all the more compelling to portray an actual person who lived and possibly died for what they believed in."

Born in Scottsdale, Ariz., Liguori grew up with a passion for the theater and acting. She was classically trained at the Oxford School of Drama in Oxford England, and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles before gaining acclaim for her stage and television work. Among TV credits are the sitcom "The Boogie Dilemma (Amazon)," "Suburgatory," "Ugly Betty," "Weeds," "Growing Up Fisher." Most recent films include "Love Lust, and A Room Key," "Hollywood Girl: The Peg Entwistle Story" in which she starred as Peg Entwistle.

MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN features Maury Sterling ("Homeland"), Daniel Dorr (Antaeus Theatre Company's production of "As You Like It"), Andy Hirsch ("Big Love"), Casey McKinnon ("The Tragedy of JFK" at the Blank), Rhonda Aldrich ("Sequestered"), Alexis Sterling ("All My Sons" at the Ruskin), Ann Colby Stocking ("The Golden Dragon" at Boston Court) and Max Faugno ("The Brothers Karamazov" at Circle X).

          Putin meet will be easiest stop on European tour: Trump      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Washington, July 11 (IANS) US President Donald Trump has said the July 16 meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Helsinki could be the easiest stop on his European tour, during which he will also meet America's historic allies.

"So I have NATO, I have the UK, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all. Who would think? Who would think?" Trump said on Tuesday just before boarding the presidential aircraft Air Force One for his flight to Brussels, Efe news reported.

Trump arrives on Tuesday night in Brussels to take part in a two-day NATO summit before heading to the UK, and will wrap up his trip on July 16 when he meets with the Russian President in Helsinki.

Asked whether Putin is a friend or enemy, Trump replied the Russian President is "a competitor".

The meeting in Helsinki will be the first bilateral summit of the leaders of the two great powers, and will take place amid tensions between Moscow and Washington.

"I think that getting along with Russia, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing, not a bad thing," Trump added before leaving for Europe.

On his trip, Trump must strike a balance between promoting a thaw with Russia and not undermining relations with America's NATO allies, in an atmosphere of US-EU tension over trade.

He will also visit the UK at a time when the government of Prime Minister Theresa May faces another political crisis following the resignation of two of her principal ministers, both critics of her Brexit plan to negotiate a smooth withdrawal from the European Union.

In that regard, Trump spoke about one of the ministers who resigned, and who until this Monday was the UK's Foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, whom he called "a friend".

"Boris Johnson is a friend of mine. He's been very, very nice to me and very supportive. And maybe we'll speak to him when I get over there," he said.

"It's going to be an interesting time in the UK, and it's certainly going to be an interesting time with NATO. But we will work it out, and all countries will be happy," Trump said.

          Trump says it is up to the British people whether Theresa May stays as PM      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Donald Trump has said that the UK is in “turmoil” and it is “up to the people” whether or not Theresa May remains Prime Minister. Speaking as he prepared to depart for a European trip in which he will meet the Prime Minister at the Nato summit in Brussels and then make his first visit to the UK as US president, Mr Trump insisted he got along with Mrs May “very well”. But he suggested that he might take time during his UK visit to speak with former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who he described as “a friend of mine”. Answering questions from reporters on the lawn of the White House as he and his wife Melania prepared to board the Marine One presidential helicopter, Mr Trump said that the UK “certainly has a lot of things going on”. “It’s going to be an interesting time in the UK and an interesting time at Nato,” he said. “We will work it out and all countries will be happy. “So I have Nato, I have the UK – that’s a situation with turmoil.” Referring to Monday’s planned summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Mr Trump added: “And I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of all.” Asked whether Mrs May should be replaced as Prime Minister, the US president replied: “Well that’s up to the people. I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship. That’s certainly up to the people, not up to me.” Mr Trump said he had not spoken with Mrs May, adding: “Boris Johnson is a friend of mine. He’s been very, very nice to me, very supportive. Maybe I’ll speak to him when I get over there. “I like Boris Johnson, I’ve always liked him.” Mr Trump repeated his demands for the EU to lower barriers to US imports and for America’s Nato allies to pay more towards their own defence. “We do have a lot of allies, but we can’t be taken advantage of,” he said. “We are being taken advantage of by the EU. “We lost 151 billion (US) dollars last year on trade and on top of that, we spend at least 70% to Nato and frankly it helps them a lot more than it helps us. “So we will see what happens, we have a long, beautiful week.”

          European Official Slams Trump with Reminder to 'Appreciate' Allies: 'You Don't Have All that Many'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
“America does not have and will not have a better ally than Europe today.”

European Council President Donald Tusk slammed President Donald Trump Tuesday ahead of the week's NATO summit, warning the president that the United States' relationships with its allies are on thin ice.

“Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don’t have all that many,” Tusk said, according to the Associated Press.

In the run-up to the meeting, Trump has been antagonizing American allies while placating Russia's authoritarian President Vladimir Putin.

"Many countries in NATO, which we are expected to defend, are not only short of their current commitment of 2% (which is low), but are also delinquent for many years in payments that have not been made," Trump tweeted Tuesday. "Will they reimburse the U.S.?""

The tweet continued Trump's bizarre idea that NATO is some kind of protection racket, and that American military spending — which Trump has repeatedly advocated increasing — is some kind of charitable donation to American allies, rather than an assertion of U.S. power abroad.

Later, he attacked the European Union as a whole, using a wildly misleading trade deficit figure: "The European Union makes it impossible for our farmers and workers and companies to do business in Europe (U.S. has a $151 Billion trade deficit), and then they want us to happily defend them through NATO, and nicely pay for it. Just doesn’t work!"

But Tusk insisted that Trump should remember who his true allies are.

“America does not have and will not have a better ally than Europe today,” Tusk said. “Europeans spend on defense many times more than Russia and as much as China, and I think you can have no doubt, Mr. President, that this is an investment in common American and European defense and security, which cannot be said with confidence about Russian or Chinese spending.”

He added: “Mr. President, please remember about this tomorrow when we meet at the NATO summit. But above all, when you meet President Putin in Helsinki.”

          'Bad for Europe, Good for Putin': Foreign Policy Expert Predicts Trump's Meeting with Allies Will Be Disastrous      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
'This meeting will go badly."

As President Donald Trump travels to meet with NATO allies in Europe, observers and experts in diplomacy expect fireworks.

Ian Bremmer, the head of the Eurasia Group, explained Tuesday on MSNBC that the summit might have had a chance at bolstering relationships with U.S. allies if Trump had sent Vice President Mike Pence to go in his place. But with the president in attendance, Bremmer argued, it's bound to end in animus, just like the recent G-7 meeting.

"This meeting will go badly," Bremmer told MSNBC's Katy Tur. While Trump seems hostile toward American allies, however, he seems positively enthusiastic to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

And right on cue, Trump tweeted an attack on American allies before Bremmer's MSNBC segment was over: "The European Union makes it impossible for our farmers and workers and companies to do business in Europe (U.S. has a $151 Billion trade deficit), and then they want us to happily defend them through NATO, and nicely pay for it. Just doesn’t work!"

Bremmer noted that the trade deficit Trump tweeted was a misleading attack on Europe because it only counts the trade in goods, not the trade in services where the U.S. is dominant.

The tweet from Trump only confirmed Bremmer's view of the summit: "Bad for Europe, good for Putin," he said.

Москва. 10 июля. INTERFAX.RU - Координатор "Левого фронта" Сергей Удальцов сообщил, что управление на транспорте по центральному федеральному округу МВД РФ намерено взыскать с него и других участников "болотного дела" компенсацию за утраченные в ходе событий на Болотной площади 6 мая 2012 года дубинки и рации.

"Спустя шесть с лишним лет после событий на Болотной площади, неожиданно, хотя уже истекли все сроки давности, меня и Леонида Развозжаева на завтра вызывают в мировой суд по месту моего жительства", - сказал Удальцов "Интерфаксу" во вторник.

Он отметил, что с иском в суд обратилось управление на транспорте МВД РФ по центральному федеральному округу. "Они предъявили иск на 43 с лишним тысячи рублей именно по событиям 6 мая 2012 года, когда их сотрудники утратили пять резиновых палок и две радиостанции "Волна", - добавил координатор "Левого фронта".

Также иск подан в отношении участников "болотного дела" Алексея Гаскарова, Ильи Гущина, Александра Марголина и Елены Кохтаревой.

В суде "Интерфаксу" подтвердили, что 11 июля в 11:00 состоится досудебная подготовка по иску УТ МВД России по ЦФО к шестерым ответчикам, в том числе Удальцову и Развозжаеву, о возмещении имущественного вреда.

По мнению Удальцова, иск связан с тем, что после истечения срока давности по "болотному делу" они с Развозжаевым обращались в Следственный комитет и суд с требованием вернуть им имущество, которое было арестовано еще в 2012 году в счет обеспечения гражданских исков. "У меня при обыске тогда изъяли 140 тысяч, машину арестовали, на которой семья ездила, и машину Развозжаева. Как только мы обратились, тут же появился этот иск. Будем разбираться, не истекли ли сроки давности", - сказал он.

From its earliest appearances on Egyptian ceramics, statues and tombs circa 2200 B.C. to the accidental discoveries of Prussian blue (1706) and YInMn blue (2009), the color blue boasts a rich history of inspiring creations that reach beyond the ocean and sky. Spanish master Pablo Picasso spent four years creating monochromatic paintings during his famous Blue Period; and French disruptor Yves Klein developed and trademarked his own intense shade of ultramarine, International Klein Blue.

Noting that “one color can be interpreted in vastly different ways” and that blue specifically is “an almost universally favored color with the ability to instill trust, inspire creativity and even lower heart rates,” Ruiz-Healy Art zeroes in on a single hue with “Blue Is Not a Color,” a summer exhibition uniting four members of the RHA roster with four guest artists.…
          Were told      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
With the resignation of Boris Johnson, the murder of Dawn Sturgess by forces within British intelligence starts to look like part of a coup plot to replace May with Johnson.  Boris was all over the false-flag attack on the Skripals, to the point of outright and obvious lies, but was noticeably quiet about the British intelligence murder of Dawn Sturgess (he was actually in complete seclusion with his aides scheming his moves).

Tweet (colin horgan):
"key paragraph of Boris Johnson's resignation letter is the second one. the British people "were told," he writes, that with Brexit, they could do all sorts of things. they were. and it was Boris Johnson who told them."
"BREXIT - Still Not Gonna Happen" (Moon).  The argument that the Conservatives couldn't possibly be as incompetent as they are demonstrating, so there is a Remain plot afoot.  The problem is they would lose a re-referendum, for the same reasons as Trump, Brexit, Corbyn, etc, but magnified due to the obvious political shenanigans.

"Chief medical officer calls for decriminalization of all drugs for personal use" (Mathieu).  The people of Canada want it, but the pharmaceutical industry would lose its precious, precious profits, so 'more study is required'.  You don't ever see more obvious corruption than politicians and drugs.

"The Persecution of Rafael Correa" (Emersberger). We're in the middle of quite the world-wide roundup of all the main faces of dissent.  The 0.1% appear to be a bit shaken, and want to ensure everybody else is scared off.

"Jonathan Chait: Is Putin Trump's Peer -- Or His Handler? A Theory" (Madrak).  "New York Magazine: Kooky Kike Jonathan Chait Pens 8,000 Word Theory Claiming Trump’s Been a Russian Agent Since 1987" (Anglin) (Daily Stormer versus Crooks and Liars is never flattering for the latter).  Sailer ("Mental Illness").  "The Guardian’s Marina Hyde accuses actress Susan Sarandon of being Trump’s “asset”" (Walsh).  Greenwald's run-in:  "MSNBC Does Not Merely Permit Fabrications Against Democratic Party Critics. It Encourages and Rewards Them."  Everybody they don't agree with is a 'Putin asset'.

"Hardcore Hitler on Hitler in Helsinki" (C. J. Hopkins):
"Look, I’m not a fan of poofter humor, or the corporate media, or the so-called “Resistance,” but neither am I a fan of Trump, nor am I, technically, an employee of Putin. What I am is a student of propaganda, media manipulation, and mass hysteria, and though I experienced the roll-out of the War on Terror, and assorted other propaganda campaigns (like Obama’s “Hope and Change” routine, Reagan’s “Morning in America” schtick, George H.W. Bush’s “New World Order,” and Bill Clinton’s “Third Way” happy horseshit), I have never witnessed anything like this. Most of those other propaganda campaigns at least bore some vague resemblance to reality. What we’re experiencing now is more akin to the kind of behavior that goes on in cults … where people are conditioned to surrender their reason (and, ultimately, to conform their perception) to whatever paranoid official narrative the leader of the cult has invented, and eventually to direct their fear and hatred, not only at the cult’s official enemy, but at anyone who questions the cult’s “reality.”
If you believe cults work because people are gullible, or stupid, you need to do some research. Cults work because their members are gradually conditioned to detach from “society” (i.e., the social body that conditioned them as children) and conform to the social body of the cult. This conditioning happens systematically, often over the course of years. Scientology cult members are not introduced to the “body thetans” story the day they walk in. Nor were the Manson girls ready to butcher a house full of people for Charlie at first … it took months of orgies, acid trips, and other de- and re-programming techniques to get them to buy into his paranoid prophecy of Imminent Racist Hippie Apocalypse.
Which is what I find so disturbing, presently. The ease with which the neoliberal ruling classes have programmed millions of Western consumers to believe a narrative no less ridiculous than Scientology’s “body thetans,” Manson’s “Helter Skelter” … or take your pick of any number of other cult narratives. The speed at which they switched from the War on Terror narrative to the Putin-Nazi narrative attests to the power of the corporate media and the neoliberal propaganda machine, generally. It really is an amazing achievement. In less than two years, they managed to condition a significant portion of the Western masses to forget about “the Islamic terrorists” that they had been conditioned to live in fear of, and to transfer their fear and hatred to Trump, and Putin, and anyone who appears to support them, or doesn’t sufficiently hate and fear them."

"The Most Intolerant Wins: Nassim Taleb Exposes The Dictatorship Of The Small Minority" (Taleb).  Intransigent minorities get their way over flexible majorities, even where the upshot is clearly irrational.  We're seeing a bit of push-back these days from the asshole right, which push-back is called 'intolerance'.

"thank you merchant you truly are my greatest ally".  "USS Liberty Survivor Named US Delegate on Gaza Flotilla" (Lauria).  "Medical Aid for Palestinians founder, Dr Swee Chai Ang, to join Freedom Flotilla".

"Jews are Still Gloating About Murdering the Tsar’s Children" (Diversity Macht Frei).  'Visit' news:  "On Rabbi Andy Bachman’s Public Congratulations to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez" (Rosen).

To be fair, they did come across as self-entitled assholes:  "Instagram’s Facade of the Perfect Life Has Made Us Lose Our Empathy" (Ginn).

Ocean Soul with underwater photographer Brian Skerry

February 20, 2019

Voyage across the oceans with one of National Geographic's most seasoned photographers and discover a vast, hidden world beneath the waves. Using his camera to communicate, Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater telling the oceans' stories. His images celebrate the mystery of the depths and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters, and has even lived at the bottom of the sea to get close to his subjects. This past fall National Geographic Books published Ocean Soul, a landmark retrospective of Skerry's photographs. In the book and this presentation, Skerry takes us from the glacial waters of the North Atlantic, where harp seals face off with commercial hunters, to the balmy central Pacific, where he photographed damaged coral ecosystems rebuilding themselves. On stage, Skerry is a passionate spokesman for the oceans he loves to photograph. His riveting presentations to audiences at TED, Harvard, and London's Royal Geographic Society inspire reverence for the marine realm and offer hope for protecting the vitality of the world's oceans.

I don't know, I guess this evidence that Trump colluded with "the Russians" to fix an election will come out any day now. It looks to me that Mueller has given up on the Russian thing and is now going after Trump over his finances. If that works and Trump gets impeached then you have Pres Pence so congrats. The only election that was proven to be fixed was Hillary's win over the poor old crazy commie. Hillary even hired the head of the DNC after she was canned for Christ's sake.

          France advances to World Cup final, beats Belgium 1-0      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia – France is back in the World Cup final for the first time since Zinedine Zidane’s headbutt in 2006.

Twelve years after one of soccer’s most infamous moments, Samuel Umtiti used his head to score from a corner kick in the 51st minute and earn France a 1-0 victory over Belgium on Tuesday in the first of the all-European semifinals.

The French players danced on the field after the final whistle and shook the hand of Thierry Henry, who helped Les Bleus win the World Cup in 1998 and is now Belgium’s assistant coach.

France will face either Croatia or England in the final on Sunday in Moscow. Those two teams play in the other semifinal match on Wednesday, also in Moscow.

France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris produced a great save in each half, denying the potent Belgian attack of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku the chance to advance the country to its first major final. Belgium reached the quarterfinals at the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship in 2016 but has yet to fulfil its lofty expectations.

The world now gets to see France’s luxury squad, collectively valued in excess of $1 billion and headlined by teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, in another major final.

Two years ago at home, the French surprisingly lost to Portugal 1-0 in the Euro 2016 title match. In 2006, they were beaten in a penalty shootout by Italy in a World Cup final that was overshadowed by Zidane headbutting opposing player Marco Materazzi in the chest in extra time. Zidane was sent off in what was his final match.

In a tournament dominated by goals from set pieces, France’s took the lead from a corner. Antoine Griezmann curled in the ball from the right and Umtiti got in front of tall Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to knock in his header at the near post.

Up in the corporate seats, French President Emmanuel Macron reacted to the goal by shaking the hand of King Philippe of Belgium as FIFA president Gianni Infantino watched on between them.

The goal capped an impressive display by Umtiti, who helped to shut out the most productive attack in the World Cup with 14 goals, and meant three defenders have now scored on France’s route to the final. Benjamin Pavard and Raphael Varane scored in previous matches.

In search of the equalizer, Belgium repeatedly sent over crosses from both wings but Umtiti and Varane, both center backs, used their bodies cleverly to hold off Fellaini and Lukaku.

France coach Didier Deschamps has faced some criticism for being too pragmatic and functional despite having so many stars in his squad, but the organization of the team was superb and Belgium was largely restricted to only minor chances that were kept out by the flying Lloris.

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after Germany great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil’s Mario Zagallo. As France captain, Deschamps won soccer’s most prized trophy in 1998.

You are not free unless you are free to make choices that others do not like. I do not see how this is the business of government, the UN or WHO. If you are a women with an infant - make your own choice. This battle has been going on for decades. One of the things loons forget is there is not a one size fits all best answer. Formula did not appear from thin air and women do not buy it rather than breast feed because women are stupid - or is that what you think ? This is more of the "Oh My God the Russian's flipped the election" garbage. You seem to think that advertising is magical. There is a truism in advertising - people do not buy something they do not want. You can get them to buy sooner. You can get them to buy your product rather than another, you can maybe get them to bump from not quite wanting your product enough to buy to wanting it enough to buy. But you can not get somebody to buy something they do not want. You can not get voters who do not want Trump to vote for him - no matter how many social media adds you run. You can not get women to buy formula unless they actually want it. You and these scientists claim that breast milk is better - by what criteria ? Clearly not that of the mother's who are buying formula. Rather than trying to pretend that there is some absolute criteria that is the same for all that produces a single answer, maybe you should consider that women are buying formula because they have determined that for them it is the best choice - possibly because they have factored in reasons that WHO has not.

          Narwhals Are Real, And They Could Be in Real Trouble      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
article-image

Narwhals are sometimes called the “unicorns of the sea.” Like their fictional equine counterparts, narwhals appear to have a horn or tusk—it actually functions more like a tooth—galloping straight out of their heads. Over the centuries, narwhals swam through the realm of folklore, figuring especially prominently in Inuit tales. They also float amid not-quite-truths: In the 16th century, naturalists depicted narwhals as something like razor-toothed alligators with saws erupting through their skulls. One described the whale as “a sea-monster that has in its brow a very large horn wherewith it can pierce and wreck vessels and destroy many men.”

Unlike unicorns, narwhals occupy space in the real world. The whales mostly congregate in Arctic waters around Greenland, Russia, and northern Canada, where they're known to dive nearly a mile deep, and surface for air in between fractured ice. But today, their landscape is changing.

In recent years, as their native waters have warmed and ice cover has shrunk, ship traffic has increased in the region. A handful of countries, including the United States, are “racing to put icebreakers into Arctic waters as rising temperatures uncover new shipping routes, resource deposits, and fishing areas,” as Scientific American reported. In one area where narwhals spend their summers, ship traffic surged by 300 percent between 2015 and 2016 alone.

Narwhals haven't been in dire straits—last year, the International Union for Conservation of Nature downgraded their status from "near threatened" to "least concern"—but shipping traffic could be bad news for these wondrous whales, according to a recent report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Researchers from the University of Washington and the University of Alaska Fairbanks estimated how vulnerable 80 populations of marine animals are to ship traffic that passes through in September, the month when melted ice yields the most open water. More than half of these populations are exposed to ship traffic, the authors found, and narwhals most of all.

"Narwhals have all the traits that make them vulnerable to vessel disturbances—they stick to really specific areas, they're pretty inflexible in where they spend the summer, they live in only about a quarter of the Arctic, and they're smack dab in the middle of shipping routes," said study co-author Kristin Laidre, a polar scientist at the University of Washington’s Applied Physics Laboratory's Polar Science Center, in a statement. Since the whales communicate underwater, use sound to navigate, and are “notoriously skittish and sensitive to any kind of disturbance,” Laidre said, they’re also susceptible to being troubled by the noises emanating from ships.

The authors surmised that beluga whales, walruses, and other mammals that hug shipping routes are also vulnerable. Less so for polar bears and roving groups of seals. The researchers found that the risks were especially pronounced in narrow segments of shipping routes—so-called "geographic bottlenecks" such as Lancaster Sound, in Nunavut, and the Bering Strait.

Despite those centuries-old warnings, narwhals aren’t preying on ships, or ramming their crews. But, in a sense, the danger is flowing the other way—at least for now. The Bering Strait and other “pinch points” represent “potentially high conflict areas,” the authors wrote, “but also opportunities for conservation-informed planning” if researchers gather more data about these unusual whales' dark, deep world.

          Brett Kavanaugh Supported Broad Leeway For Presidents Under Investigation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Over a dozen years as a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., Brett Kavanaugh has weighed in on controversial cases involving guns, abortion, health care and religious liberty. But after Kavanaugh emerged on President Trump's shortlist for the Supreme Court, a suggestion the judge made in a 2009 law review article swiftly took center stage: "Provide sitting presidents with a temporary deferral of civil suits and of criminal prosecutions and investigations," Kavanaugh proposed. The judge emphasized that no one is above the law, but he pointed out that the Constitution already provides a solution if there's a scoundrel in the White House. "If the president does something dastardly, the impeachment process is available," he wrote. That matters now — especially to Democrats mulling whether to oppose Kavanaugh's nomination to the highest court in the nation — because Trump is facing a special counsel probe into Russian election interference in 2016 and whether anyone in

          Life Lately      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Life Lately has been....interesting. 
There has been good, bad & ugly.
When the Summer first started a month ago, I definitely didn't think I would be having skin cancer removed from my nose which would slightly alter my summer plans. But, life must go on and even though this Summer hasn't gone as completely as planned, we are still having fun and I am still trying to make the most of it.

So, here is a sneak peak of our Life Lately.

We are checking things off our Summer List:
We made Strawberry Jam.
Every Summer, my mother in law make a year supply of Strawberry Jam. We have been doing this for the past 15 years! I love this tradition. You can see our recipe HERE.

We went on a Road Trip to Oregon & the Oregon Coast....blogging this SOON!!!! It was so fun & so beautiful. Promise to blog it by next week :)

The kids and I headed to Lake Tahoe.
Our trip got cut short because I had to come back early for my surgery, but it was still good to getaway to my happy place for a few days.

Then I had my skin caner surgery....you can read more about it HERE.
I am not going to lie...having skin cancer removed from my nose has been more traumatic than I thought it would be. I was not prepared for the size of the hole on my nose. Yes, there are thousands of things worse than having to wear a bandage on your nose for 4-6 weeks, but I didn't realize how self conscious I would be of it. It's been 10 days since surgery and I am snapping out of my funk, it's just getting some used to.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade...or wear your favorite lemon pj’s while reading a book about Lemon Pie.
 Lemon Pajamas {HERE} and Luck, Love & Lemon Pie Book {HERE}
I guess I’m in a lemon-y mood.
 I heard about this author last month and read  2 other books by her, loved them both (Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Simplicity of Cider
They are all Perfect summer reads that have a sweet story line and all involve food of some kind.

I've spent a majority of the past 10 days in pj's either reading or cleaning and working on my 40 Bags in 40 Days Project! Look how many things I've crossed off this Summer!

 I even added 2 more items....the fridge & freezer. Totally cleaned those out.
All I have left is the kids closet and our Guest Room/Office.
I can't tell you how good it feels to GET RID OF STUFF!!!!!!!!
Look at my closet..I got rid of so many clothes (and shoes!)
 
 It feels like a huge weight has been lifted, getting everything so organized.
I have donated over 30 bags to the Goodwill and I have thrown away probably 15 bags of stuff.
Everything in my house has a place now, so it makes keeping it clean so much easier.
Let's see how long this can last.
I am hoping to get the Guest Room & Office done this week.
The kids closets will be a little tricky because I their help with it and they aren't too excited about that task :)

Because I've stayed home so much the past 10 days, I also got caught up on blogging our Universal/Harry Potter World Trip (Read about that HERE) and then I blogged Part 2 of that trip which was Disney for 2 days (Read about that HERE)

The day after my surgery Kevin texted me and said he got me a present to cheer me up (we never exchange presents..not even for Christmas or birthdays, we would rather do experiences, so I had no idea what he got me) Imagine my shock and excitement when he came home from work with this!?! And 2 wireless controllers  Apparently, the day after my surgery was the re-release day and Kevin was able to get one for me. 
I had been trying to buy one of these for over 1.5 years. 
Fact: When they first came out in November 2016, I set an alarm on my phone to buy one but they sold out. For the next 2 months, I kept that alarm on my phone and every day for 2 months I called Game Stop, Target and Best Buy to see if they had been restocked. I wasn’t willing to pay $$$ on eBay. I gave up hope.
My favorites are Balloon Fight, Excitebike & Mario. Next up, Kid Icarous & Dr. Mario

 4th of July was 6 days post surgery...it's one of my favorite days of the year. For the past 10 years we have gone to our friends house for breakfast & their big party before the parade, but they are getting a pool put in their backyard so no party this years. So, I  signed up for a local 4th of July race.
I haven’t consistently run in the past few weeks because of traveling & skin cancer surgery, but I still wanted to make sure I got my July race in since I am doing a race every month until I turn 40 in May. Originally planned on the 10k, but after the crazy few weeks switched to the 5k. It’s a local 4th of July Run.
Felt good for my soul to get out there and run again, but man that hurt!
 When I got home, Kate had made 4th of July waffles for all of us!

So creative...she even put white sprinkles in the blue to make it look like stars.

We rode our bikes downtown to the parade. 
Who doesn't love a small town parade?

 Then, we got home and watched the Hot Dog Eating contest. Joey Chesnut won by eating 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes...So gross, but we watch it every year.

We got ready to have friends over for a 4th of July Pool Party & BBQ. 

 I made my Corn Dip....YUM!
 
We usually have a 4th of July Party, but because of my surgery we decided not to have one because we didn't know how I would be feeling, so we were going to meet our friends at the Pool for the party.
 
The day before I told everyone to come here for the party instead.

Filling my house with family & friends is the best medicine.

 It was great...8 adults & 11 kids.
 The kids swam, the adults hung out and we had hamburgers & hot dogs for dinner. My friend Annie made this gorgeous berry trifle.
 We even got to see a few fireworks that someone in our neighborhood illegally set off.
 It was such a fun day!
Last Saturday was the first one in forever when we haven’t had any plans at all. 
Woke up early to watch my people (England) beat Kevin’s people (Sweden) 
Well, at least we think he’s Swedish, waiting for his 23 & Me results.
I made my light & fluffy pancakes & also had bacon, fruit, coffee and mimosas. 
These pancakes are the best. So light & fluffy.

We also watched Russia vs Croatia & the kids swam all day.

 Kevin set up the "slide".
 2 years ago when we took down the play structure, Kevin saved the slide and made it into a pool slide. It's been on our side yard for over a year and the kids begged him to put it up again.
 I sat in the shade and devoured this book!!! 
I LOVE Elin Hildebrand and this was one of my favorite books of hers.
I could not put it down!

Grilled Tri Tip for dinner, had fresh corn & my Caprese Orzo Salad.
I always cut the corn off my corn on the cob....easier to eat & doesn't get stuck in my teeth :)
It was pretty close to the perfect Summer Saturday.


Like I mentioned last week, my Rodan + Field team is having Christmas in July Specials every week this month!
Today until July 18th, the Special is if you buy a Regimen/Travel Regimen Special, you get $20 cash back, a FREE cosmetic bag and a FREE mini eye cream!

They only sell travel sets every once in a while, so get one while you can!
This deal is good for new and current customers!
 Lash boost is my #1 product, but Unblemish is my most popular selling regimen because it WORKS. Teens and adults can use Unblemish.
 Personally, I love the Reverse regimen...it got rid of my pregnancy melasma and sun damage that I had.

Our regimens last 3-4 months and like all our products, this offer comes with a 60 day, empty bottle, 100% money back guarantee. You have nothing to lose!

It hasn't been all sunshine & roses, but I am trying to have a positive attitude and not feel too self conscious with a bandage on my nose :)

Embattled former Trump White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is joining a new consulting firm, Stonington Global, which offers lobbying, public affairs and investment advisory services. The hire comes as Flynn is looking at potential jail time stemming from the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Last December, the former lieutenant general pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. He is currently cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. On the same day of the announcement, Flynn faced another sentencing hearing where his lawyers pushed to speed up the process, saying Flynn is “ready to...

          Facebook fined for data breaches in Cambridge Analytica scandal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Firm fined £500k for lack of transparency and failing to protect users’ information

Facebook is to be fined £500,000, the maximum amount possible, for its part in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the information commissioner has announced.

The fine is for two breaches of the Data Protection Act. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) concluded that Facebook failed to safeguard its users’ information and that it failed to be transparent about how that data was harvested by others.

Related: Revealed: 50 million Facebook profiles harvested for Cambridge Analytica in major data breach

In December 2016, while researching the US presidential election, Carole Cadwalladr came across data analytics company Cambridge Analytica, whose secretive manner and chequered track record belied its bland, academic-sounding name.

Her initial investigations uncovered the role of US billionaire Robert Mercer in the US election campaign: his strategic “war” on mainstream media and his political campaign funding, some apparently linked to Brexit.

She found the first indications that Cambridge Analytica might have used data processing methods that breached the Data Protection Act. That article prompted Britain’s Electoral Commission and the Information Commissioner’s Office to launch investigations whose remits include Cambridge Analytica’s use of data and its possible links to the EU referendum. These investigations are continuing, as is a wider ICO inquiry into the use of data in politics.

While chasing the details and ramifications of complex manipulation of both data and funding law, Cadwalladr came under increasing attacks, both online and professionally, from key players.

The Leave.EU campaign tweeted a doctored video that showed her being violently assaulted, and the Russian embassy wrote to the Observer to complain that her reporting was a “textbook example of bad journalism”.

But the growing profile of her reports also gave whistleblowers confidence that they could trust her to not only understand their stories, but retell them clearly for a wide audience.

Her network of sources and contacts grew to include not only former employees who regretted their work but academics, lawyers and others concerned about the impact on democracy of tactics employed by Cambridge Analytica and associates.

Cambridge Analytica is now the subject of special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probing of the company’s role in Donald Trump’s presidential election campaign. Investigations in the UK remain live.

          President Erdogan takes tips from Putin in targeting dissidents abroad      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
What happened?

On 14 March 2018, Prime Minister Theresa May announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats after Russia refused to explain how a Russian-made nerve agent was used in the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal, in Salisbury, England on 4 March 2018. Britain, the US, Germany and France have released a joint statement deploring the Salisbury poisoning as an “assault on UK sovereignty” and emphasised that such intervention is a “breach of international law”.

Russia is notorious for targeting those who have fallen afoul of the Kremlin. There is a long list of cases where Russia’s dissidents and renegade spies have fallen ill or died under suspicious circumstances. Similarly, Turkey’s Erdogan regime has been systematically targeting dissidents abroad through criminal activities.

On 4 March 2018, Reuters reported that Switzerland is investigating a plot in which Turkish diplomats planned to drug and kidnap a Swiss-Turkish businessman, believed to be affiliated with the Hizmet Movement. The Office of the Attorney General in Switzerland confirmed a criminal case is being conducted into political intelligence gathering and prohibited acts towards a foreign state.

This latest plot joins the long list of Hizmet participants who have been illegally targeted by the Erdogan regime in the aftermath of the July 15 coup attempt.

What does this mean?
  • The Turkish government has been systematically using a variety of methods to target Hizmet participants outside Turkey.
  • After the July 15 coup attempt, the Turkish government set up a telephone hotline so that people can report Hizmet participants.Text messages and social media posts were used to incite people to inform on Hizmet participants and others deemed critical of the Erdogan regime.
  • On 4 August 2016, Turkey’s state-run news agency published an infographic targeting Hizmet inspired people and foundations in the UK, linking them to terrorism.
  • On 13 March 2018, Germany launched an investigation into the controversial group called Osmanen Germania BC on the grounds that the group is reportedly involved in violent crime and has ties to the Turkish government and Turkish National Intelligence (MIT).
  • Stockholm Center for Freedom documented an increasing number of cases of abductions and enforced disappearances by the Turkish government of the Erdogan regime’s critics. Most of the victims are believed to be Hizmet participants.
  • The Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), Germany’s largest Islamic organisation, has admitted that some of its imams have acted as informants for the Turkish government.
  • A pro-government Turkish journalist, Cem Küçük, said that the Turkish intelligence (MIT) has the authorisation to conduct operations abroad and many overseas Turks are willing to carry out assassinations on behalf of MIT.
  • In March 2017, Switzerland had launched a criminal investigation into foreign spying on the country’s Turkish community by Ankara.
  • In May 2017, a Turkish-origin school principal and two businessmen of Turkish origin were abducted in Malaysia, to be forcefully taken to Turkey.
  • In November 2017, in the US, an investigation was instigated into the activities of ex-Trump aide Michael Flynn for an alleged plan to kidnap Fethullah Gülen in return for $15m.
  • In a report on the diaspora politics of Turkey in the UK, the Turkey Institute, a London-based research centre, concluded that “there are illegal activities conducted by the Turkish state which target dissidents of the regime abroad often through means of labelling people by creating lists, sometimes kidnapping individuals, and even assassinating Turkish-/Kurdish-origin political dissidents living abroad, resulting in a generation of fear among the diaspora.”
  • In its latest report published on 20 March 2018, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights suggested that Turkey should ‘promptly end the state of emergency and restore the normal functioning of institutions and the rule of law’, and ‘rescind passport cancellation orders and deprivation of citizenship procedures, and enable full freedom of movement’.

Dr Ismail Mesut Sezgin, Director of the Centre for Hizmet Studies, said:
Turkey has been aggressively transferring its domestic politics abroad and mobilising the Turkish diaspora in direct and indirect forms via diplomatic agents, religious officials, and politically driven NGOs. Unfortunately, such practices have led to an increasing number of cases of abductions, attacks, incidents of hate speech, abuses, threats and profiling of dissident groups, including the Hizmet Movement. The gradual erosion of fundamental human rights, President Erdogan’s authoritarian practices, and his aggressive foreign policy choices are often likened to the Putin regime. However, it appears that President Erdogan also takes tips from the Putin regime in targeting its critics abroad to send a message to those who dare to dissent.

          Report: Flynn Had Way More Potential Conflicts Than We Previously Knew      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser who subsequently pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and is now cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller, had a slew of previously unreported conflicts of interest, Bloomberg reported Monday.

Flynn’s previously reported conflicts were already damning: He lied to investigators about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador before Trump took office. He and his firm failed to register as foreign agents doing work that, Flynn’s attorney later admitted, “could be construed to have principally benefited the republic of Turkey.” Part of that work included an effort to smear — and possibly kidnap, though Flynn’s lawyer has denied that — Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim cleric living in Pennsylvania who Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused of orchestrating the failed 2016 coup against him.

Flynn reportedly put on hold a plan to arm Kurdish forces in the fight against the Islamic State — a move beneficial to the Turkish government — 10 days before before Trump took office, when no one knew Flynn was working as an agent of the Turkish government. He also reportedly promoted a plan to build nuclear power plants across the Middle East in a June 2015 trip he failed to disclose.

Bloomberg on Monday reported on conflicts related to Iranian-born businessman Bijan Kian, who was a close business partner of Flynn’s until recently. Flynn’s relationship with Kian goes back to 2008, according to Bloomberg’s report. TPM has previously reported on the pair’s connection via the Nowruz Commission, which promotes and celebrates the Persian New Year. The commission also listed former CIA director Jim Woolsey as an ambassador.

In 2013, when Flynn was leading the Defense Intelligence Agency, Kian got Woolsey to set up a meeting between him and Flynn to promote his computer chip company, per the report. Afterward, Flynn tasked the DIA’s chief scientist to “help the chip maker pass military certification standards,” Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed sources Kian briefed.

After President Barack Obama fired Flynn in 2014, according to Bloomberg, Kian brought Flynn onto the board of his company, GreenZone Systems Inc. In 2015, GreenZone won a $1.1 million contract from the Defense Department’s Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office, which works with the DIA (but does not report to it, as Bloomberg noted).

Later that year, on a previously-reported trip to Saudi Arabia where Flynn promoted nuclear reactors, he also attempted to sell Kian’s computer chip, according to Bloomberg. Flynn then lied about the trip on federal disclosure forms, according to the report.

A year after that trip, according to Bloomberg, Kian met with staffers from the House Homeland Security Committee in late 2016 to once again promote GreenZone products. He then changed topics suddenly, according to the report, and “abruptly ushered in another group with an entirely separate and unexpected agenda” — the demonization of Gulen, the Muslim cleric.

Finally, Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed sources who worked on the 2016 presidential transition, that Kian and Flynn worked on a proposal to create an intelligence force of private contractors that would report directly to the national security adviser, circumventing the CIA. According to the report, Flynn was fired in February 2017 before he could “shepherd those plans into action.”

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee and perhaps the legislator most attentive to Flynn’s various business dealings and ethics violations, told Bloomberg News that the newly reported conflicts indicate “that General Flynn’s use of public positions for profit was far more wide-ranging than previously known.”

“We have been raising red flags and requesting documents about these issues for the past year,” Cummings told Bloomberg. “But the White House continues to stonewall us, and Republicans in Congress continue to wall off the White House from serious oversight.”

          Trump: Meeting with Putin might be easier than NATO meeting      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

President Trump told reporters on Tuesday morning that Russian President Vladimir Putin is "a competitor," but that that the meeting with him may be easier than Trump's meeting with NATO allies this week, per pool reports.

"So I have NATO, I have the UK — that’s a situation with turmoil. And I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of all.”
President Trump

Why it matters: These comments echo concerns from European officials told to Axios' Jonathan Swan that Trump will "spend the entire NATO summit beating up on America's closest allies — especially Germany — for not spending enough on their defense .. [a]nd that he'll have a friendlier summit with Putin just a few days after."

Champions League, Ludogorets-Crusaders mercoledì 11 luglio: analisi e pronostico degli ottavi dei preliminari della competizione europea

Ludogorets-Crusaders mercoledì 11 luglio. E' tempo di Champions League, la massima competizione europea per club, con il Ludogorets - squadra bulgara - che sfida i nordirlandesi del Crusaders negll'andata degli ottavi dei preliminari, il primo ostacolo da superare per sperare nella qualificazione alla fase a gironi.

I bulgari hanno una sola gara ufficiale nelle gambe, la Supercoppa di Bulgaria vinta lo scorso cinque luglio in gara secca contro lo Slavia Sofia; il Ludogorets, però, è arrivato a questo appuntamento con quattro gare amichevoli di preparazione in un lungo precampionato praticamente già finito. I bulgari hanno preso parte a sei edizioni della Champions League e tre dell'Europa League.

Il Crusadera, invece, ha disputato l'ultima gara ufficiale addirittura lo scorso 28 aprile e nelle ultime settimane ha giocato tre gare amichevoli di preparazione per arrivare pronto a questo appuntamento fondamentale per la stagione. I nordirlandesi hanno all'attivo cinque partecipazioni alla Champions League, tre alla Coppa delle Coppe e nove all'Europa League.

La formazione che vincerà sfiderà la vincente di Dudelange-Videoton.

Champions League, Kukesi-Valletta mercoledì 11 luglio: analisi e pronostico degli ottavi del preliminare della competizione europea

Kukesi-Valletta mercoledì 11 luglio. Il Mondiale è all'epilogo - quasi - il calciomercato impazza ma intanto si scende in campo già per le gare ufficiali di Champions League, la massima competizione europea per club.

Gli albanesi del Kukesi affrontano i maltesi del Valletta nell'andata degli ottavi di Champions League, la porta che - attraverso altri turni - porterà alla fase a gironi con tutti i top club.

Il Kukesi non ha gare ufficiali nelle gambe, con l'ultima gara di spessore disputata lo scorso 23 maggio, in campionato; una sola amichevole - peraltro persa malamente contro il Maribor - ed una condizione approssimativa per la squadra albanese.

Il Valletta, proprio come gli avversari, ha disputato la sua ultima gara ufficiale lo scorso coinque amggio, con la gara di FA Trophy. Ad oggi nessun minutaggio nelle gambe degli uomioni maltesi, con nessuna amichevole disputata.

Gli ospiti, però, hanno grande esperienza internazionale; ben 18 partecipazioni alla Champions League, sette in Coppa delle Coppe, 13 in Europa League e due in Intertoto.

Le due formazioni non si sono mai incrociate e, quindi, è un inedito assoluto la sfida.

Champions League, Valur-Rosenborg mercoledì 11 luglio: analisi e pronostico del primo turno preliminare del massimo torneo europeo.

Champions League, Valur-Rosenborg mercoledì 11 luglio, analisi e pronostico del primo turno preliminare del massimo torneo europeo. Sfida molto interessante.

Il primo turno preliminare di Champions League proporrà una sfida molto interessante tra gli islandesi del Valur e il Rosenborg. Norvegesi più esperti e favoriti per questa doppia sfida, ma attenzione ai locali che cercheranno di sfruttare il fattore casalingo.

QUI VALUR

Gli islandesi sono tornati campioni dopo dieci anni, ventunesima vittoria nella loro storia nel campionato locale. Un ritorno in Europa dopo dieci anni d'oblio quasi, per il club più titolato dell'isola, a caccia di un buon cammino nella manifestazione.

Il miglior risultato del Valur in Coppa dei Campioni è il secondo turno del 1967/68, mentre nel 1986/87 ci fu l'unico incontro con un'italiana. Contro la Juventus non ci fu storia per gli islandesi, 0-7 e 0-4 all'epoca.

Nel campionato 2018, il Valur viaggia in prima posizione, appaiato allo Stjarnan a 25 punti dopo dodici turni disputati.

QUI ROSENBORG

Sognando gli Anni Novanta, potrebbe intitolarsi così la rincorsa dai preliminari del Rosenborg. I norvegesi sperano di rivivere un periodo magico per il loro calcio, ma mancano dalla fase a gironi dalla stagione 2007/08. Da allora tante difficoltà per il club bianconero di Trondheim in Europa, con la speranza di tornare quelli di un tempo, magari guidati dall'ex juventino Nicklas Bendtner in attacco.

Il miglior risultato nella storia europea del Rosenborg è la Champions League 1996/97, quando eliminarono il Milan di Arrigo Sacchi ai gironi prima di fermarsi al cospetto della Juventus campione in carica (1-1 e 0-2).

In Patria il Rosenborg ha vinto per venticinque volte il campionato ed è reduce da tre trionfi di fila, che ne fanno per distacco il miglior club norvegese.

Nella stagione in corso 2018 i bianconeri sono secondi dopo sedici giornate a 33 punti, a meno due dalla capolista Brann. Una rincorsa in atto che emana profumo di sorpasso a breve termine.

Il pronostico: X2+Over 1.5

Olimpia Lubiana-Qarabag mercoledì 11 luglio

Champions League, Olimpia Lubiana-Qarabag mercoledì 11 luglio: analisi e pronostico del primo turno preliminare del massimo torneo europeo.

Champions League, Olimpia Lubiana-Qarabag mercoledì 11 luglio, analisi e pronostico del primo turno preliminar del massimo torneo europeo. Scontro molto equilibrato.

Il primo turno preliminare di Champions League vedrà una delle sfide più equilibrate in programma tra Olimpia Lubiana e Qarabag. Ospiti leggermente favoriti, ma attenzione ai locali pronti a sognare la fase a gruppi.

QUI OLIMPIA

Un ritorno storico alla vittoria quella dei biancoverdi, che non vincevano il titolo sloveno dal 1995. Un'assenza in Champions League che durava dalla stagione 1993/94 per l'Olimpia, caduta nell'oblio dopo i primi anni da dominatrice nel novello campionato locale di inizio Anni Novanta.

Gli sloveni tornano in Europa a distanza di cinque anni dall'Europa League 2013/14, e puntano ad imitare i rivali di sempre del Maribor, giunti ai gironi nella scorsa edizione della Champions League.

Nel 1992/93 l'Olimpia affrontò nella prima edizione della nuova Coppa dei Campioni, ovvero la Champions League, il Milan. Non ci fu storia in quel primo turno, con netta vittoria rossonera tra andata e ritorno (4-0 e 3-0).

QUI QARABAG

Gli azeri sognano di ripercorrere l'exploit della scorsa stagione, quando giunsero alla fase a gironi. Un risultato storico e mai raggiunto per il calcio locale, con risultati decisamente lusinghieri. Il Qarabag, infatti, finì nel girone con Roma, Chelsea e Atletico Madrid, strappando due pari ai Colchoneros (0-0 e 1-1 al Wanda Metropolitano) giungendo ultimi comunque.

Il Qarabag ha vinto gli ultimi cinque campionati locali, e sta dominando il calcio azero, sia per potenzialità del club che per qualità. Tanti stranieri nella rosa azera, che è una di quelle maggiormente qualitative in questa fase di Champions League.

Il Qarabag nella sua storia ha sfidato per tre volte club italiani: in Europa League l'Inter (2014/15, 0-2 e 0-0), nel 2015/16 la Fiorentina sempre in Europa League (1-2 e 1-5) e l'anno scorso in Champions la Roma (1-2 e 0-1).

Champions League, Vikingur-HJK martedì 10 luglio: analisi e pronostico dell'andata degli ottavi dei preliminari

Vikingur-HJK martedì 10 luglio. Il primo turno dei preliminari di Champions League è stato archiviato ed è ora tempo dell'andata degli ottavi di finale dei preliminari, con il Vikingur, club delle isole Far oer, che affronta i finlandesi dell'HJK.

I padroni di casa hanno già giocato 16 gare di campionato, la Premier League, e sono attualmente terzi in classifica con 29 punti, in zona Europa League ad 11 lunghezze dall'HB Torshavn primo, unica piazza a qualificare per la prossima Champions League. Vanta due partecipazioni alla Champions League, una alla Coppa delle Coppe, 13 in Europa League e due in Intertoto. E', poi, in un ottimo momento di forma, reduce da quattro vittorie consecutive.

L'HJK, invece, ha disputato 19 gare di campionato della Veikkausliiga, il massimo torneo finlandese, ed è primo in classifica con 42 punti, ben sette lunghezze di vantaggio sul Rovaniemi secondo. Solo la prima piazza qualifica per la prossima Champions League, quella 2019/2020. I finlandesi hanno decisamente più esperienza rispetto agli avversari; ben 18 partecipazioni alla Champions League, quattro alla Coppa delle Coppe, 20 all'Europa League ed una nell'Intertoto.

Non c'è nessun precedente tra le due formazioni. La formazione che passerà il turno affronterà il BATE Borisov.

Lissa,

Again, I voted for Clinton. I agree it would be better if she were elected. But unless you have a time machine, there's nothing we can do about that now. So instead of repeatedly saying that if Clinton had won, things would be different, why not start to analyze why she lost and what we can do about it going forward? Because saying that things would be peachy if Clinton won is A) not true and B) irrelevant. If you want to try the smae strategy again next time you will have the same results.

Rhizome,

What caused the USSR to collapse? Among many things, it was their attempt to both fund their massive military and also invest in social programs. Do you think it was a conspiracy theory to point out that the people who controlled the Soviet state in the 60s-80s were also the people who profited from it? The US is the only country in the world that can run such a massive deficit and still be wealthy. It has a deficit nearly five times greater than the next largest. This is not a problem like conservatives make it out to be with their worries about deficit spending- if they thought so they wouldn't invest so much in the military. It's not a problem SO LONG as capitalism continues to expand because the dollar is the capitalist world's default currency. This means all around the world, people invest surpluses in the US, buying their debt, trading in dollars, etc. I'm sure you know this. So think through what it requires for a second. In this unique situation, the US is also capable of investing huge amounts of money in both the military- trillions, with a military presence in a 1/3 of the worlds countries, by far the greatest arms exporter, occupations and regime changes and coups and election interference everywhere. I know damn well why they do this- it's because without doing it they'd lose regional hegemony in some places and the US share of control of global wealth would start to decline which would be catastrophic not just for US domestic economics but also global capitalism. While they are doing this, they are also investing heavily in infrastructure and welfare state programs- taxpayers fund both, both the military and the domestic infrastructure. It's impossible to pay for all of this - a very expensive state AND by far the greatest and most expensive military in the history of the world (greater than just about everyone else combined)- without running a massive deficit. Impossible. The Soviets tried, and it broke them. So this is all fine and dandy so long as capital continues to expand and the wealthy continue to invest their surpluses in dollars. Now the problem is that the rest of the world is rising too and now the share of wealth and places you can invest is likewise declining - simultaneously, corporations and the ruling class here in the US have been reducing what they pay in taxes and their investments in social infratructure and welfare programs. So people who are not rich are having to subsidize that wealth- you cut taxes on the rich and you give corporations massive tax breaks so that they continue to do business in your town but you still have to fund roads and schools etc- so now you are going to pay for that with property taxes and sales taxes increases etc. This is a requirement short term because it increases the profits of the very rich- they are the ones who LITERALLY (and you can't call this an exaggeration or a conspiracy theory) fund elections and lobby groups and influence legislation and foreign policy, and if you don't give them what they want, they will go somewhere cheaper- there's nothing corporate sponsored politicians can advocate for otherwise. Longer term, it's a requirement to keep dollar based capitalism expanding- first there was investment and growth in Japan and Germany then secondary states around that (Trump is trying something similar with KSA right now) and this requires fighting to maintain that hegemony. Then there was an investment in China. Now it's in the urban building boom. I don't know where they will go next. So all at the same time, you have 1) the share of global wealth that the US controls shrinking (as other states rise up), 2) the cost of maintaining what we have left is rising (military costs), 3) the wealth that is generated domestically is also at a higher cost, the very rich are hoarding more of it than they ever have since the pre New Deal days through regressive taxes and subsidies, and 4) the social infrastructure defunded and privatized more than it has ever been since pre New Deal days yet still requiring even more investments. The political class in this country is doing what they have been purchased to do- buffer these losses by creating policies that support the very rich to help them maximize their profits within this situation. There is no opposition doing the same for public infrastructure or people- we just eat the loss and fund the rich's. Neither in labor nor in any political group with power- you can't look at the recent SCOTUS decision about labor, the tax bill, citizens united, etc, and see otherwise. And so you have literally very rich people fighting for short term control of massive wealth because the expansion is accelerated and the need to for shorter and shorter term returns is likewise accelerated. It would be a conspiracy theory if I thought there were smart evil rich people at the top pulling the strings of all of this. Instead, I see it for what it is- unstable race to the bottom with very wealthy fighting over the last remnants of it for the purpose of short term profit. The rest of us have already lost.

Foreign policy is not a pet project. It's literally life and death for millions of people including people I know and love, and the cause of the massive refugee and immigration crisis around the world that yes obviously affects everyone's life here. What the US could do with those 'hard decisions' is not intervene. They don't have to carry out wars for regime change or interfere in others politics, and you can't make a serious humanitarian argument that US interference has helped- the histories of Central America, Southeast Asia, Middle East and North Africa demonstrate otherwise. So they could choose to not intervene. The reason they don't is that it another power would step in, be it Chinese or Russian, and accelerate the loss of US hegemony and share of global wealth and slowly but surely chip away at the unique position that allows capitalist expansion and the running of a US deficit. This is why both our corporate parties have the same foreign policy. The question is how you feel about living in a state that literally requires the destruction of millions of lives around the world. I have a hard time voting for that, and I see the urgency to create an alternative system, not just reform the one we have. I also have no idea how to do that, and I'm not sure that socialist projects will be sufficient. But at least they are advocating for the prioritization of the public sphere and the end to imperialism. As I have lived in other countries, including those that the US has destroyed, I can see what is going to happen. We are going to end up with some sort of corporate control oligarchy that sets trade laws and regulation policy and tax policy and that operates in pockets of wealth- people who can afford to purchase infrastructural services will have them and will be able to shop and have a nice life, and the rest of us will be outside at each other's throats. This is how it is in much of the world, only we have millions of guns and fragmented communities with already despairing levels of alienation, isolation and individual violence.

Now you were basically taunting me to explain a very complicated subject, and I have done my best. I suggest instead you read about it if you are really curious why so many of us on the left see this in terms of extremely wealthy corporations vs public sector.

          Vive la France: Les Bleus advance to World Cup final      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — They're young, they're brash and they're collectively worth a billion dollars. The one thing missing for this French squad is an international title.

Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and France are about to get that chance.

Les Bleus are headed to the World Cup final.

Samuel Umtiti clinched a 1-0 win over Belgium — and earned the approval of watching French President Emmanuel Macron in the VIP seats at St. Petersburg Stadium — by scoring on a header off a corner kick in the 51st minute on Tuesday.

"Vive la France! Vive la Republique!" France forward Antoine Griezmann shouted during postgame celebrations.

Umtiti played his part in a strong defensive effort by the French, too, helping to shut out the highest-scoring team at the tournament and leaving Belgium's golden generation of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to regret another missed opportunity at a major tournament.

"It's me that scored," Umtiti said, "but we all delivered a big game."

France's players danced on the field after the final whistle and their fans sang in the stands long past the end of the match, surrounded by yellow-clad security.

They certainly hope to keep the party going on Sunday in the final in Moscow. France — with an average age of 26 — will face either Croatia or England, who play Wednesday at the Luzhniki Stadium in the Russian capital, and has a shot at redemption after losing its last two major finals — at the 2006 World Cup when Zinedine Zidane was sent off for a nasty head-butt and the 2016 European Championship on home soil.

"We're immensely privileged to be in the World Cup final," France coach Didier Deschamps said. "It was so painful two years ago we have to savor it."

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after German great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo. As France captain, Deschamps raised soccer's most prized trophy in 1998.

Deschamps has faced some criticism for being too pragmatic and functional despite having a squad of superstars, but his team was set up superbly against an opponent that was largely restricted to only minor chances and denied on two occasions in particular by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

He dived to his right midway through the first half to claw away Toby Alderweireld's shot, then got in front of Lukaku to punch away one of the many crosses sent in by Belgium in the final stages.

In a tournament dominated by goals from set pieces, France's goal came off a corner when Griezmann curled in the ball from the right and Umtiti got in front of tall Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to knock in his header at the near post.

Up in the corporate seats, president Macron reacted to the goal by shaking the hand of King Philippe of Belgium as FIFA president Gianni Infantino watched on between them.

"Unfortunately for us, the difference is just a dead-ball situation, a set play," Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said. "The game was, as you can imagine, very close, very tight, and it was going to be decided (on) maybe the one that could find that final touch in the box."

After reaching the quarterfinals at both the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship in 2016, Belgium again missed the chance to get to an international final and has yet to fulfil its lofty expectations. Leading the scoring in this tournament with 14 goals, many thought this could be their year.

With Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar no longer in Russia, Hazard and Mbappe have taken over as the stars of the World Cup and there was a buzz every time either got the ball.

Yet while Hazard — Belgium's captain — faded after a strong opening 30 minutes, Mbappe was a constant threat. His first touch was after 10 seconds and, after receiving the ball on the right wing, he sped past Jan Vertonghen and then Mousa Dembele on a thrilling run.

At 19, Mbappe wasn't even born when France won the World Cup for the first and only time with a squad that is just as diverse as the one Deschamps is leading 20 years later.

Umtiti was born in Cameroon. Mbappe has Algerian-Cameroonian roots.

"It's a pure pleasure to see these players grow," Deschamps said, "and never give up."

Instead of a trip to Moscow, Belgium will return to St. Petersburg on Saturday for the third-place match no team wants to play.

IN THE STANDS

Along with the French and Gabonese presidents and the king and queen of Belgium, there was rock 'n' roll royalty watching the game.

Mick Jagger was one of the many famous faces in the stands at St. Petersburg Stadium. The Rolling Stones frontman is a big soccer fan, having attended the World Cup final in Brazil in 2014 as well as many England games.

Former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson, who is the partner of France defender Adil Rami, also was present.

          The Latest: Pogba dedicates France win to freed Thai players      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — The Latest on Tuesday at the World Cup (all times local):

12:15 a.m.

Paul Pogba has paused after the biggest win of his international career to dedicate it to the Thai soccer team whose last members were freed from a flooded cave hours earlier.

The France midfielder took to Twitter shortly after France beat Belgium late Tuesday to advance to the World Cup final. He posted the boys' photos and said the victory "goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong."

The last of the 12 boys and their coach were freed earlier in the day from a cave where they had been trapped for more than two weeks.

FIFA had invited the team to the World Cup final on Sunday but the governing body announced the boys wouldn't be able to attend since they are receiving medical treatment after their ordeal.

11:15 p.m.

Paris has erupted in firecrackers, flares and shouts and tears of joy after France advanced to the World Cup final.

Red smoke rose up from flares fired by fans on the Right Bank esplanade outside City Hall, where crowds watched a broadcast of the 1-0 victory over Belgium on huge screens Tuesday night.

Fans poured onto streets around the city, from the chic Champs-Elysees to working-class neighborhoods on the edge of town. Firecrackers popped in quick succession, punctuated by car horns and football chants and "On est en finale!" or "we're in the final!"

Some streets were closed to car traffic to accommodate fans. Police vans lined the busiest areas in a city still on guard after extremist attacks.

France will face the winner of Wednesday's semifinal between England and Croatia in the World Cup decider in Moscow on Sunday. The French public, celebrities and politicians have rallied around the national team as it advanced.

Samuel Umititi scored the only goal in the semifinal with a header in the 51st minute at the St. Petersburg stadium in Russia.

Umititi says "We worked really hard together, and it's me that scored but we all delivered a big game."

His live TV interview was interrupted by teammate Antoine Griezmann, who saluted to the camera and said: "Vive la France! Vive la Republique!"

10:55 p.m.

France has reached the World Cup final for the first time since 2006 with a 1-0 win over Belgium in a semifinal match that attracted presidents, royalty and a rock star.

Samuel Umtiti's header in the 51st minute was the only goal in a tense match at St. Petersburg.

France, the 1998 champions and runners-up in '06, will play either Croatia or England in Sunday's final at Moscow. England and Croatia will meet Wednesday in Moscow in the second semifinal.

France President Emmanuel Macron and King Philippe of Belgium shook hands in the VIP section before the match. Mick Jagger was also on the official list of guests.

10:15 p.m.

What came first, the chicken or the goal?

Harry Kane, Dele Alli were among the England players who played a game of toss the rubber chicken at training, a day ahead of a World Cup semifinal against Croatia.

Why?

"That's exactly what I asked our fitness coaches around here," England coach Gareth Southgate said. "Our physical performance coaches try to keep refreshing the warmups of the players and keep them stimulated. Just a bit of fun to get them moving, and some of the mobility exercises."

10:09 p.m.

Samuel Umtiti has headed France into a 1-0 lead against Belgium in the World Cup semifinals.

Umtiti rose brilliantly to head in Antoine Griezmann's corner from the right in the 51st minute, for his first goal of the tournament.

Striker Olivier Giroud won the corner after turning Belgian defender Vincent Kompany, forcing him to put his goal-bound shot out of play.

The winner in St. Petersburg plays Croatia or England in Sunday's final.

9:46 p.m.

It's 0-0 at halftime in the World Cup semifinal despite Belgium and France going close to scoring in the first half.

With France's soccer-loving President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian King Philippe watching from the stands, France sat back and hoped to hit Belgium on the counterattack.

Belgium used the space to put France under pressure around the 20-minute mark with Eden Hazard firing a curling shot from the left that Raphael Varane headed over the bar. Hugo Lloris was twice called into action to save France.

The France goalkeeper first punched away a cross by Kevin De Bruyne aimed at Marouane Fellaini and moments later dived to his right to block a shot by Toby Alderweireld.

French teenager Kylian Mbappe's pace was a constant threat on the right and his pass in the 40th minute set up Benjamin Pavard but Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois stuck out a left leg to deflect the shot wide.

9:10 p.m.

Mick Jagger is on FIFA's list of VIP guests at the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium in St. Petersburg.

The Rolling Stones singer completed the band's world tour on Sunday in Poland.

On stage in Warsaw, Jagger fulfilled a request by former Polish president Lech Walesa by drawing attention to an authoritarian government policy to remove independent judges.

Among the political leaders joining Jagger in the crowd as official are Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Ali Bongo Ondimba, the President of Gabon.

___

9 p.m.

The World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium has kicked off at St. Petersburg Stadium, with France President Emmanuel Macron and King Philippe of Belgium in attendance.

France coach Didier Deschamps warmly hugged Thierry Henry moments before the start. Henry is France's all-time leading scorer with 51 goals, but is now an assistant to Belgium coach Robert Martinez. Henry also greeted players on France's bench.

The winner between France and Belgium will meet Croatia or England in Sunday's final.

France was European Championship runner-up two years ago and is aiming to reach its fourth major final this century. Les Bleus won Euro 2000 and lost the 2006 World Cup final.

Belgium is hoping to reach only the second major final, having lost the European final to West Germany in 1980. Belgium lost its only previous World Cup semifinal to an Argentina in '86.

___

8:50 p.m.

France President Emmanuel Macron is attending the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium at St. Petersburg Stadium. Macron shook hands with King Philippe of Belgium, who was with his wife Queen Mathilde.

Macron and King Philippe shook hands warmly and Macron patted him on the chest.

Macron is an avid soccer fan and supports southern French club Marseille.

8:10 p.m.

Mexico went home from the World Cup more than a week ago, and while its fans are still scattered around Russia, some of them have lost enough interest in the matches that they're selling tickets at face value.

Several fans wearing Mexico's green jerseys approached a larger group of Belgians at a beer garden in St. Petersburg offering seats at "FIFA prices" for the World Cup semifinal. They didn't immediately find any takers among the festive Europeans, who apparently already were set for the Belgium-France match.

Mexican and South American fans came to Russia in huge numbers despite having to travel far greater distances than Europeans. They're still everywhere in the semifinal cities of St. Petersburg and Moscow even though only teams still alive are from Europe.

7:55 p.m.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has picked Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele to replace Thomas Meunier for the World Cup semifinal against France.

Martinez has been forced to reshuffle his back line after Paris Saint-Germain wing back Meunier was suspended for the match in St. Petersburg after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament in Belgium's 2-1 quarterfinal win over Brazil.

After using a four-man defense against Brazil, Martinez has reverted to a three-man backline and four-man midfield of Nacer Chadli on the left, Dembele on the right, and Marouane Fellaini and Axel Witsel in the middle.

Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne make up a potent three-man attack.

Dembele's inclusion was the only change to the Belgium team that beat Brazil 2-1 in the quarterfinals.

Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Toby Alderweireld, Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen, Axel Witsel, Kevin De Bruyne, Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Mousa Dembele, Nacer Chadli.

____

7:45 p.m.

France coach Didier Deschamps has recalled Blaise Matuidi in the only change to his lineup for the World Cup semifinal against Belgium at St. Petersburg Stadium.

Matuidi, who was suspended for the 2-0 quarterfinal win over Uruguay last Friday, comes into midfield to replace Corentin Tolisso.

Veteran striker Olivier Giroud hasn't scored yet in the tournament but needs one goal to move ahead of Zinedine Zidane into outright fourth spot on France's all-time list. Giroud keeps his place in a forward line featuring 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann.

France: Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappe, N'Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi, Lucas Hernandez.

7:30 p.m.

The British government says motorways are expected to have one-third less traffic than normal when England takes on Croatia in the World Cup semifinals.

Highways England says traffic analysis on each of the England match days to date showed that during the games demand reduced by up to 33 percent.

The agency said in a statement that roads were not busier than normal before or after games, "suggesting people are often choosing not to travel or to travel at completely different times."

Frank Bird, one of Highways England's emergency planning officers, says "along with the rest of the country, we'll be cheering on England! We want them to bring it home - and we want everyone on our roads to get home safely."

7:15 p.m.

Thousands more England fans are expected to descend on Moscow for their first World Cup semifinal in 28 years, but there's not much sign of them yet.

The Nikolskaya street near the Kremlin, elaborately decorated with hanging lights, has been the main gathering point for fans in the Russian capital.

There were no more than a few dozen England fans there as of late Tuesday afternoon, with those singing team songs heavily outnumbered by passers-by filming them on phones.

Still, Kevin Miles of the Football Supporters Federation expects between 5,000 and 7,000 fans for Wednesday's semifinal against Croatia, but admits "a lot of people are doing it last minute, so it's very difficult to put numbers on it."

Airlines have offered extra places on flights to Moscow and some Russians have sold their tickets after their team lost to Croatia. Still, Miles says high prices "have put a lot of people off" who were thinking of traveling at short notice.

6:15 p.m.

England manager Gareth Southgate has been surprised at the vest craze back home, where "Waistcoast Wednesday" is trending.

Stores have been pushing waistcoat sales as England advanced to a World Cup semifinal match against Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday, with people taken by Southgate's style of wearing a vest without his suit jacket,

Southgate says "I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather strange to feel that way now. But we are really proud of the support that we are receiving."

England has reached the semifinals at the World Cup for the first time since 1990, and confidence among supporters is growing that the national team will win the title for the first time since 1966.

Southgate says, "We've had the chance to make a difference. Our supporters, our country has had a long time of suffering in terms of football, and the enthusiasm they have for these players, because of the way they've — not only the way they've played, but the way they're conducted themselves, they've been brilliant ambassadors for our country, and I think everybody can see that they're proud to wear the shirt."

5 p.m.

FOX Sports says it will be simulcasting the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium on Silvercast's high-definition screen known as "Mega-Zilla" in New York's Times Square.

Soccer fans in the United States have watched the World Cup in Russia on big screens around the country, but this is promoted as the biggest of them all.

The "Mega-Zilla," a 78-foot-by-330-foot (24x100-meter) screen being promoted as the largest TV screen in the world, will be located between 45th and 46th Street on Broadway in Manhattan.

France and Belgium will be playing for a spot in Sunday's final in Moscow.

4:45 p.m.

FIFA says players from the youth soccer team rescued from a cave in Thailand will not be able to attend the World Cup final.

The sport's world governing body says it has been informed by Thai authorities that the 12 boys and their coach "will not be in a position to travel" for health reasons.

FIFA expressed its "great joy" at the rescue and says its "priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation."

FIFA leaders will meet with Thai soccer officials this weekend in Moscow to explore "a new opportunity" to invite the boys to a major event to celebrate their survival.

The last four of the boys and the team coach were rescued Tuesday from a flooded cave in far northern Thailand after an ordeal that lasted more than two weeks.

FIFA expressed "profound gratitude to all persons involved in the rescue operation," and condolences for the family of the diver who died.

3:30 p.m.

They're getting the World Cup croissants ready in Paris.

Paris, Russia, that is.

The village of Paris just outside the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod is embracing its French links ahead of the World Cup semifinal match between France and Belgium.

The village cafe is decorated with images of the Eiffel Tower and is preparing croissants for the game, plus a Russian menu for any French guests who might happen to drop by.

Mayor Sergei Gromov says "we were supporting Russia but now it's turned out like that (that Russia was eliminated), we're going to support France and wish it success."

The village's full name is In Memory Of The Paris Commune, a reference to a socialist rebellion in 19th-century France. The name is so unwieldy most locals use Paris for short. Not everyone in Paris is pro-France, though. Villager Elena Vasilyeva says she's cheering on Belgium because "they're a real team."

___

3 p.m.

The Ukraine Football Federation has offered to pay a fine imposed on a Croatia official for making a pro-Ukraine video at the World Cup.

Soccer's international governing body has fined Ognjen Vukojevic 15,000 Swiss francs ($15,150) for "unsporting behavior" after he and Croatia defender Domagoj Vida recorded a video including the phrase "glory to Ukraine" after the team beat host nation Russia in the World Cup quarterfinals.

The video angered some Russian fans, but was welcomed in Ukraine, where both Vida and Vukojevic formerly played for the Dynamo Kiev club. Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and political tensions remain high.

UFF president Andriy Pavelko, wearing a Croatia shirt and scarf, tells Ukrainian broadcaster 112 that he and other members of the UFF management offered to pay the fine and help Vukojevic with legal costs if he wants to appeal the ruling.

The Croatia soccer federation has already removed Vukojevic from its World Cup delegation. Vida was let off with an official warning and no match sanction, leaving him available to play in Wednesday's World Cup semifinal against England.

1 p.m.

The World Cup semifinal stage is beginning with the all-European lineup being celebrated by soccer's governing body on the continent.

Belgium and France play in St. Petersburg on Tuesday and then Croatia and England meet the following night in Moscow.

It is the fifth time the last four has featured only European teams.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says "even though some of our traditional contenders such as Germany, Spain and Portugal were eliminated, there are other teams which have surpassed expectations and can now win the title."

In a statement to The Associated Press, Ceferin added "these results validate all the work that is being done across the continent to develop football, and they also showcase the strength and quality that exists across the whole UEFA region."

          Southgate, England ready to face music of soccer history      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — Gareth Southgate and England are ready to face the music.

No other soccer nation dwells on decades of failure quite like the English. Southgate was so demoralized by his penalty kick failure against Germany in the 1996 European Championship semifinals, he avoided The Lightning Seeds "Three Lions," the team's official song when it hosted the tournament.

Now the song, with its repeated chorus of "football's coming home," is a staple again, No. 5 this week on YouTube UK's top music videos chart with more than 2 million views on the day of England's last match.

"'Football's coming home' is a song I couldn't even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel," Southgate said Tuesday on the eve of England's World Cup semifinal match against Croatia. "But it's nice to hear people enjoying it again."

When the song first was released, the chorus proclaimed "Three lions on a shirt/Jules Rimet still gleaming/Thirty years of hurt/never stopped me dreaming." A 1998 update changed the third verse to "no more years of hurt."

England hasn't played in the semifinals of a major tournament since Southgate's penalty kick at Wembley was saved by Andreas Koepke 22 years ago, and Andrea Moeller put the next kick over David Seaman and under the crossbar. The most-cherished national team memory remains the 1966 World Cup final victory at Wembley over West Germany, a demarcation point in the island's history as much as 1066 (the Norman invasion) and 1707 (union with Scotland).

"It was a long time ago, so not too many of us can remember that far back," said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990.

The winner Wednesday advances to Sunday's final against France. Southgate wants to break stereotypes, and not just on the field.

"I'm rare breed. I'm an Englishman that doesn't drink tea," he said.

England and Croatia are teams that innovated over time but have generally been immutable during the World Cup, sticking to virtually identical starting lineups except for group phase finales, after advancement was secure. In the other four games, Croatia's only variable to its 4-2-3-1 formation was whether to start captain Luka Modric in a deep midfield role and Andrej Kramaric more advanced, or to move up Modric and start Marcelo Brozovic.

Right back Sime Vrsaljko limped off during the quarterfinal win over host Russia and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time but remained in the match. When asked about injuries, Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic responded through a translator with inconclusive palaver about Vrsaljko having "this niggle."

England has gone with a 3-5-2, and the only change was to start Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield after Dele Alli injured a thigh.

"The biggest thing that the gaffer's brought since he's come in, which he's brought right from day one, was identity, and about the way that we wanted to create a team," Henderson said. "You can see that togetherness on the pitch now, and I think that's valuable in crucial moments in big games, and yeah, I can definitely say this is most together England team that I've been involved in, and so I think that makes a massive difference and you get your rewards for that."

With an average age of 26, England is one of the youngest teams at the World Cup.

"We were never quite sure how far this team could go," Southgate said. "The age of the players, the improvement in the players, the hunger in the players has been apparent for everybody to see. We're really proud in the style that we've played, with the intelligence that we've played, and that we've performed under pressure and dealt with difficult situations in games where we've had to wait until the last minute to score, we've had to recover from conceding in last minute, we've been through extra time, penalties."

Croatia made its only semifinal appearance in 1998, losing 2-1 to host France. Defender Dejan Lovren is a teammate of Henderson's on Champions League finalist Liverpool, and Lovren bristled when asked about a 4-1 loss at Tottenham last October when England striker Harry Kane scored twice.

"It's completely irrelevant," he said through a translator. "Why didn't you ask me how I played well against him? You are just nitpicking my poor performances."

          Coach of England wins the nation's heart by being a nice guy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LONDON — In an age of tattoos, tongue piercings and tensions over Brexit, a soft-spoken man in a dark blue waistcoat and striped tie is uniting England amid dreams of victory in soccer's World Cup.

Coach Gareth Southgate is the buttoned-down leader of a new generation of players who speak softly and let their victories silence critics. And England supporters have found that refreshing after years of underperforming teams led by stars such as David Beckham, who became as much a celebrity as an athlete.

"He's very much about a team spirit. It's more about the collective — you can see it in the way he deals with the squad," said Paul Willis, who was in the stands last Saturday in Samara, Russia, when England reached the semifinals with a 2-0 victory over Sweden. "We had superstars, but we didn't have a team."

Southgate's focus on teamwork and civility has made him an unlikely icon in a country that is deeply divided by bitter arguments over plans to leave the European Union and a widening gap between rich and poor. England Captain Harry Kane may be the tournament's leading scorer, but fans are donning waistcoats and ties — even as the country enjoys an unusually hot summer — in homage to Southgate as pundits extol the 47-year-old coach's calm leadership.

"He has shown us the value of courtesy, kindness, hard work and that most derided of virtues, niceness," columnist India Knight wrote in the Sunday Times. "He has redefined not just how to be a manager, but how to be a man."

Southgate displayed his character after England's July 3 victory over Colombia, offering a supportive hug to Colombian player Mateus Uribe after his miss in a penalty shootout helped England advance. The England coach understood Uribe's agony, having missed a similar shot at the 1996 European championships. The moment of empathy also reminded the country how Southgate once lampooned his own failure with a Pizza Hut commercial in which he wore a bag over his head to shield his identity from angry fans.

Southgate's compassion sparked a hashtag for the coach's real and imagined acts of kindness such as "#GarethSouthgateWould stop and help you put the chain back on your bike even if he was all dressed in his waistcoat and late for the game."

Southgate became manager less than two years ago after the Football Association's first choice was forced out after unguarded comments to undercover reporters. Since then he has quietly ushered out the last of the old stars and brought together a group of youngsters who modestly shrug off compliments and give kudos to their teammates.

Perhaps more importantly, he recognized the contribution of the fans, something that had been eroded during the superstar era. After every game, Southgate and his players walk across the field to applaud the supporters who have traveled to Russia to cheer for the team.

"We had lost a bit of connection," Willis, a 57-year-old fan from Birmingham, said of past regimes. "That is now back. All the team and the back room applaud our input to the game."

That has also translated into huge support back home in football-mad England.

At least 20 million people, 38 percent of England's population, watched Saturday's victory over Sweden, according to figures from the BBC. Commentators say the actual number was much higher because so many people watched the game on huge screens in parks and shopping centers.

London authorities are inviting 30,000 fans to the city's Hyde Park for a screening of Wednesday's semifinal against Croatia. Fearing demand will far exceed that, authorities stressed that only those with tickets should come to the park. Ticket services reported hundreds of people were trying to dump theater tickets for Wednesday because they had more pressing business elsewhere.

Social media sites are urging fans to wear waistcoats — please don't call them vests — to the office ahead of the big match — a "Waistcoat Wednesday" if you will. Marks & Spencer, the official tailor to the England team, says sales of the grandfatherly garments have doubled during the World Cup.

Rio Ferdinand, one of the previous "golden generation" of players who is now a commentator for the BBC, has been leading the cheers for this year's team, asking fans to post video of their beer-throwing, chest-bearing, flag-waving celebrations after the win over Sweden.

On Sunday, Ferdinand tweeted his own mea culpa for past failures, while also highlighting Southgate's unique contribution.

"Why weren't the golden generation... the golden generation???" he tweeted. "We as players look at ourselves first...we never performed....but sometimes you have to be allowed to perform! Gareth is allowing this current @England to do this."

That's paying off.

Kane, who turns 25 later this month, has scored six goals in the tournament. Dele Alli, 22, came back from injury to score the team's second goal against Sweden. Fabian Delph, 28, played the last 15 minutes of Saturday's game after missing the previous game against Colombia because Southgate allowed him to go home for the birth of his third child.

Southgate himself recognizes the contributions of everyone, from the physiotherapists to the players who push their teammates in practice but rarely get into a game, even to fans back home.

"Our country has been through some difficult moments recently in terms of its unity, and I think sport has the power to do that and football in particular has the power to do that," he said. "So for us, we can feel the energy and we can feel the support from home, and that's, that's a very special feeling. It's a privilege."

Barring that, it does help to have a snappy waistcoat.

"Quite frankly, I don't care what he wears," Willis said. "He can wear a tutu if we carry on winning."

          Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus in a move expected to benefit the Portugal forward's tax return.

Juventus said Tuesday it paid 112 million euros ($131.5 million) for Ronaldo, who signed a four-year deal with the Serie A champions.

The move brings an end to a hugely successful nine-year spell in Spain, and takes him further away from a tax fraud case that may end up costing the Portugal forward more than $20 million in fines.

"These years with Real Madrid and in this city of Madrid have been possibly the happiest of my life," Ronaldo wrote in an open letter. "My only feeling is of an enormous gratitude for this club, for these fans and for this city. I can only thank them all for the love and affection I have received.

"But I think the time has come to start a new phase in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept my transfer. I feel that it is time, and I ask everyone, especially our fans, to please understand me."

Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United and was the Spanish club's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches. He helped the club win four Champions League titles — beating Juventus in the final in 2017 — and also won the league and cup twice each.

He has scored a record 120 Champions League goals, 105 of them since moving to Madrid — 12 more than Juventus managed in that same period.

But he was unhappy with the way the tax authorities treated him in Spain. Ronaldo, along with several other top players in the country, has been accused of tax fraud, with authorities saying the government was defrauded of 14.7 million euros ($17 million) from 2011-14. Unconfirmed media reports last month said Ronaldo had agreed to pay a fine of 18.8 million euros ($22 million).

In Italy, a new law caps tax on income generated from abroad at 100,000 euros ($117,000) per year for residents who have paid their taxes in other countries for at least nine of the last 10 years.

Other players targeted by Spanish tax authorities in recent years include Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Luka Modric. Former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, now at Manchester United, was also investigated.

Ronaldo is currently on vacation in Greece following Portugal's elimination from the World Cup. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli flew out Tuesday to meet the 33-year-old forward.

"Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proven to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the greatest eras in the history of our club and of world soccer," Real Madrid said in a statement.

"In addition to the titles he won, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and determination," Madrid added. "For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of its greatest symbols and a unique reference for the next generations. Real Madrid will always be his home."

Ronaldo signed a five-year deal with Madrid in 2016, saying he wanted to end his career at the club. But he has also publicly expressed his discontentment about being jeered at times by some Madrid fans at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Ronaldo was also moved by the Juventus fans for giving him a standing ovation after he scored a spectacular goal against the Italian club at the Allianz Stadium in the Champions League quarterfinals last season.

"I gave a lot of thought to this and I know that the time has come for a new era," Ronaldo said. "I'm leaving, but this jersey, this shield and the Santiago Bernabeu will always feel as something that is mine wherever I go."

The signing broke the Serie A record, which Juventus set two years ago when it paid Napoli 90 million euros (then $99 million) for Gonzalo Higuain.

Ronaldo made his debut for Sporting Lisbon when he was 17. His crossover dribble was already famous when Alex Ferguson brought him to Manchester United ahead of the 2003-04 season and gave him the No. 7 shirt of the recently departed David Beckham.

He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.

Ronaldo led Portugal to its first major title at the European Championship two years ago in France. He helped the Portuguese team reach the semifinals in his first World Cup in 2006.

Portugal was eliminated by Uruguay in the round of 16 of this year's tournament in Russia. Ronaldo scored four goals to take his tally to 85 for his country and break Ferenc Puskas' record as Europe's all-time leading international scorer.

          England fans trickling into Moscow for World Cup semifinals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — An influx of England fans is expected to descend on Moscow for the World Cup semifinals, but there's not much sign of them yet.

The Nikolskaya street near the Kremlin, elaborately decorated with hanging lights, has been the main gathering point for fans in the Russian capital.

A few dozen England fans were there on Tuesday afternoon, with those singing team songs heavily outnumbered by passers-by filming them on phones.

Kevin Miles of the Football Supporters Federation expects between 5,000 and 7,000 fans for Wednesday's semifinal between England and Croatia, but admits "a lot of people are doing it last minute, so it's very difficult to put numbers on it."

Airlines have offered extra places on flights to Moscow and some Russians have sold their tickets to the match after the host nation lost to Croatia in the quarterfinals. Still, Miles says high prices for flights and tickets — whether bought through FIFA or from touts — means fans can't be as spontaneous as they'd like.

"The prices have put a lot of people off," Miles told The Associated Press. "There's a lot of people having that idea at home and getting online and seeing the costs and practicalities."

England's influx comes amid political turmoil at home over Britain's exit from the European Union, and as British police linked the death of a British woman to the poisonings of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March. The British government has blamed Russia for the earlier poisonings.

Some fans are expected to travel without tickets, partly because the FSF identified a loophole in Russia's visa-free system for the World Cup for ticketholders. Russian authorities are issuing "Fan IDs," which mean fans with tickets don't need visas, but the application system allows them to use numbers from other people's tickets and even tickets from old games.

"The experience so far of the first five games has been that the place has been very hospitable and very friendly," Miles said. "There's plenty of opportunities to watch the match without a ticket if you want to come, so people shouldn't feel put off at all. No doubt it'll be a great atmosphere on final day in particular."

England fans congregated at some bars on Nikolskaya on Tuesday, but there were far fewer fans than from the big crowds of South Americans who turned the street into Moscow's party central in previous weeks. The few Croats there were outnumbered by sombrero-wearing stragglers from Mexico's thousands-strong fan army, even though Mexico was eliminated eight days before.

Giant England flags were tied to fences, bearing the names of lower-league clubs such as Blackpool, Bristol City and Tamworth.

England fan Barry Walker said he'd been at England's two knockout games and expected fan numbers to double for the semifinals.

"I've loved it," Walker said. "Russians just want to buy us drinks."

          Paris, Russia, to turn French for World Cup semifinals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

PARIS, Russia — They're getting the World Cup croissants ready in Paris.

The Russian village of Paris, that is.

The village just outside the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod is embracing its French links ahead of the World Cup semifinal match between France and Belgium.

The village cafe is decorated with images of the Eiffel Tower and is preparing croissants for the game, plus a Russian menu for any French guests who might happen to drop by. The village fire station is setting up benches outside for the crew's friends and relatives to watch the game and has hung a French flag from an old fire truck.

"We're going to support France today because our home is known as Little Paris," Mayor Sergei Gromov said. "We were supporting Russia but now that it's turned out like this (with Russia eliminated), we're going to support France and wish it success."

The village's full name is In Memory Of The Paris Commune, a reference to a socialist rebellion in 19th-century France. The name is so unwieldy most locals use Paris for short.

Not everyone in Paris is pro-France, though. Elena Vasilyeva said she will cheering for Belgium.

"They're a real team," she said. "I like them more."

          World Cup preview: Croatia vs. England semifinal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A capsule look at Wednesday's World Cup semifinal match between Croatia and England in Moscow (2 p.m. EDT, 9 p.m. local):

WHY CROATIA WILL WIN

A generation of players in their primes, or just past their primes, led by a strong midfield with Ivan Pericic (29), Ivan Rakatic (30) and Luka Modric (32), with Mario Mandzukic (32) heading the attack.

WHY ENGLAND WILL WIN

After falling short for generations, coach Gareth Southgate has put together a team that is playing like a team. Striker Harry Kane was the only standout heading into the tournament. Plus the Croats are coming off consecutive penalty-kick wins and figure to have to more tired legs.

PROJECTED LINEUPS

Croatia: 4-2-3-1 — Subasic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic; Rakitic, Modric; Rebic, Kamaric, Perisic; Mandzukic

England: 3-5-2 — Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Henderson, Trippier, Alli, Lingard, Young; Sterling, Kane

MAN IN THE MIDDLE

Cuneyt Cakir of Turkey will referee his second straight World Cup semifinal match, after Argentina's penalty-kick win over the Netherlands four years ago. Cakir worked Iran's 1-0 win over Morocco and Argentina's 2-1 victory over Nigeria in the group stage this year, and he refereed Barcelona's 3-1 victory over Juventus in the 2015 Champions League final.

WORLD CUP HISTORY

In England's last semifinal match, Andreas Brehme's 60th-minute shot deflected off an onrushing Paul Parker at the penalty arc and looped over goalkeeper Peter Shilton to put West Germany ahead. England tied the score when Parker's cross bounced off Juergen Kohler and fell to Gary Lineker, who beat goalkeeper Bodo Illgner to the far post in the 80th minute. In the shootout, Stuart Pearce was stopped by Illgner on England's fourth attempt, Olaf Thon converted for a 4-3 lead and Chris Waddle shot over the crossbar.

Croatia went ahead in the 1998 semifinals only 26 seconds into the second half when Aljosa Asanovic split the defense with a pass, and Davor Suker scored his fifth goal of the tournament. Lilian Thuram tied the score a minute later after stealing the ball from Zvonimir Boban near the Croat penalty area and exchanging passes with Youri Djorkaeff. Thuram scored the go-ahead goal with a curling shot in the 70th minute, and France won 2-1.

CROATIA GOALS

vs. Nigeria (2-0): own-goal (32), Modric (71-penalty)

vs. Argentina (3-0): Rebic (53), Modric (80), Rakatic (90+1)

vs. Iceland (2-1): Badelj (53), Perisic (90)

vs. Denmark (1-1, 3-2 penalty kicks): Mandzukic (4)

vs. Russia (2-2, 4-3 penalty kicks): Kramaric (39), Vida (101)

ENGLAND GOALS

vs. Tunisia (2-1): Kane (11, 90+1)

vs. Panama (6-1): Stones (8, 40), Kane (22, 45+1-penalty, 62), Lingard (36)

vs. Belgium (0-1)

vs. Colombia (1-1, 4-3 penalty kicks): Kane (57-penalty)

vs. Sweden (2-0): Maguire (30), Alli (59)

HEAD TO HEAD

Croatians played for Yugoslavia before splitting off in 1990. England has four wins, two losses and one draw in the matchup, including a 4-2 victory in the group stage of the 2004 European Championship. The teams have not met since qualifying for the 2010 World Cup, when England won 4-1 in Zagreb and 5-1 at Wembley Stadium. England goalkeeper Paul Robinson kicked at and missed a backpass from Gary Neville, allowing an own-goal in a 2-0 loss in a European qualifier in 2006. Goalkeeper Scott Carson fumbled Niki Kranjcar's shot into the net for the opening goal as Croatia won 3-2 at Wembley the following year, causing England to miss Euro 2008. England coach Steve McClaren held a large red-and-blue umbrella on the sidelines and was mocked as the "Wally with the brolly," and he was fired the next day. They are drawn into the same group of the initial Nations League, a new competition kicking off this autumn.

SUSPENSIONS

None

INJURY CONCERNS

Croatia right back Sime Vrsaljko walked slowly off the field with an apparent leg injury when he was replaced in extra time of the quarterfinals.

England midfielder Dele Alli has not played a full match since injuring a thigh against Tunisia.

JUST SAYING

Croatia: "It won't be easy for us. We will focus in the next few days to recover as much as possible. We will look for the best solutions ahead the match, considering we have a few players with minor issues after the match against Russia. It won't be easy, but to get into the semifinals it's a new motive for us." — Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic, through a translator

England: "Probably 18 months ago I talked to them about if you have success with England, it will be so much bigger than anything you can imagine, and I think that is probably starting to register with them now." — England coach Gareth Southgate

          Germany makes Mesut Ozil the scapegoat for World Cup exit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BERLIN — Same coach, same team manager, same president.

And yet after almost two weeks of reflection, the German soccer federation (DFB) appears to have decided midfielder Mesut Ozil is the main culprit for the team's shock early World Cup exit.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff wondered in a newspaper interview if Ozil should even have been taken to the tournament in Russia, while DFB president Reinhard Grindel followed up by demanding the player provide an "answer."

Joachim Loew has not commented on the matter since deciding to stay on as coach.

Ozil, long a key player for Loew, has been in the firing line since he and national teammate Ilkay Gundogan posed for photos with Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May. Both German-born players have Turkish roots.

While Gundogan attempted to distance himself from the incident in Britain, Ozil has maintained his silence - antagonizing the same people who said the issue had been dealt with before the World Cup.

"Only DFB officials can come up with the idea that a photo with Erdogan is responsible for a defeat against the football-giants of South Korea," North Rhine-Westphalia minister president Armin Laschet said on Twitter.

Following Germany's first-round exit, Bierhoff told newspaper Die Welt it might have been better to omit Ozil from the tournament. Bierhoff pulled back after criticism, saying it was a misunderstanding and he did not intend to single out any player for the team's failure.

But Grindel kept the issue alive, telling the latest edition of Kicker magazine: "It's true that Mesut has not commented yet. That has disappointed a lot of fans because they have questions and expect an answer. They are right to expect this answer. That's why it's totally clear for me that Mesut should speak on the issue."

Grindel has received just as much criticism as Bierhoff did. The Berliner Zeitung newspaper accused the DFB president of "throwing oil on the fire to shine a good light on himself."

The DFB itself arguably made the Erdogan-photo affair worse with its public admonishment of Gundogan and Ozil. Grindel was scathing in his criticism of the players, who were summoned for talks.

Now Grindel says, "We have to wait for the sporting analysis and see whether Joachim Loew still counts on him."

Ozil has been one of Germany's standout players since starring at the 2010 World Cup. His performances earned a switch from Schalke to Real Madrid. He has made 92 appearances for Germany, contributing 23 goals from midfield.

Ozil was not the only player to underperform in Russia, where defending champion Germany was knocked out after defeats to Mexico and South Korea. But his performances have come under the most scrutiny because of the Erdogan photos and because of his own high profile within the team.

"He and Gundogan suffered from what happened before the World Cup because they have been vindicated in Germany," Ozil's former Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger, told Bein Sports.

Gundogan and Ozil were whistled by German fans during matches, while both have been subjected to abuse off the pitch, too.

German comedian Oliver Pocher impersonated Ozil with large fake eyes, saying he was going "home" on vacation and listing off the Turkish cities he was going to visit before returning.

Far-right politicians have been slating the player, while journalist Claus Strunz said "Mesut Ozil does not belong to Germany" after noting he does not sing the German anthem.

"No DFB official has condemned the racist comments against Ozil," the Schwaebische Zeitung newspaper said.

Ozil's father, Mustafa, told the Bild tabloid that Bierhoff's statements were "an affront. In my opinion they only serve to save one's own skin."

Mustafa Ozil, who fell out with his son in 2013, suggested a racial motive for the attacks.

"Unfortunately there are still people in the German population who have reservations and prejudices against us of Turkish descent," he said.

"In Mesut's place I'd resign (from the Germany team). But that's just my personal opinion."

Bashar al-Assad non utilizzò armi chimiche


All'indomani della pubblicazione del rapporto dell'OPCW, in cui è stata chiaramente evidenziata l'infondatezza delle accuse mosse contro Assad sulla questione di Douma, ancora nessuna fonte mediatica ha ammesso le proprie colpe.

Non è di certo nelle nostre corde fare i saccenti, quello lo lasciamo alle anime belle dell’informazione patinata. Allo stesso tempo, però, non possiamo non notare la difformità di trattamento, riservata ad alcune notizie provenienti dalla Siria, da parte dei media nazionali.
All’indomani della spallata governativa nel Gouta-est e alla conseguente conquista della cittadina di Douma i maggiori mezzi di informazione si sono sperticati nel dare spazio alle notizie di fonte ribelle secondo le quali l’esercito di Damasco avrebbe fatto uso di armi chimiche. La campagna mediatica fu martellante, senza lo straccio di una prova, e venne inscenata una pantomima di narrazione, corredata da immagini di repertorio e falsità assolute, le quali portarono presto all’attacco di Stati Uniti, Francia e Regno Unito su postazioni dell’esercito regolare.

Al contrario, in questi giorni, i risultati delle analisi dell’Organizzazione per la proibizione delle armi chimiche, organismo delle Nazioni Unite, sono stati fatti passare sotto il più assoluto silenzio. Vi chiederete il perché, data la sicurezza e la professionalità con cui vennero date le notizie nell’aprile scorso. [Sic!]

«Dai risultati è emerso che non sono stati usati gas nervini o prodotti derivati» così si esprime il rapporto dell’OPAC, ecco il perché del silenzio di televisioni, giornali e radio. Nulla di tutto quello che ci è stato raccontato è avvenuto, certificato e assodato dall’ONU.

Nessun gas di Assad, dunque, solo il cloro dei ribelli:insieme ai residui di esplosivi, sono stati rinvenuti vari composti di cloro”. Cloro che già era stato scoperto dall’esercito russo all’indomani della liberazione di Douma, così Alexander Rodionov portavoce dell’esercito di Mosca “un laboratorio chimico e un deposito di sostanze chimiche sono stati trovati durante un’ispezione a Duma. Durante l’ispezione, gli specialisti hanno scoperto sostanze chimiche bandite. Inoltre hanno trovato un contenitore di cloro simile a quello usato dai miliziani per mettere in scena il falso attacco chimico”

Sporca, sporchissima questa guerra di Siria, arrivata quasi alla sua conclusione e fortunatamente dalla parte giusta, lascia ancora spazio alla nefandezza nostrana. Del resto, la stampa occidentale è talmente colpevole per le sofferenze del popolo Siriano che ogni notizia proveniente da quelle latitudini non gli lascia che una scelta: il silenzio e l’oblio.

Viktoria Skripal accusa le autorità britanniche


Più che interessante l’intervista rilasciata oggi alla Repubblica da Viktoria Skripal, cugina di Julia e nipote dell’ex spia russa Serghej, che le autorità britanniche dicono siano stati avvelenati col gas nervino Novichok dai russi. Un’intervista che nasce da un nuovo avvelenamento da Novichok, quello di due cittadini britannici, avvenuto, come l’altro, a Salisbury.

Un contagio, quest’ultimo, che sarebbe per caso: i due avrebbero toccato qualche elemento contagiato nel primo avvelenamento. Una delle due vittime, purtroppo, la signora Dawn Sturgess, è morta.

Viktoria Skripal e i misteri dell’inchiesta britannica

Parla dalla Russia, Viktoria Skripal, e dice: “Non mi è parso un caso che la notizia del [nuovo ndr] contagio sia arrivata alla vigilia di una semifinale Russia – Inghilterra”. Sul punto vedi anche Piccolenote.
“Se Londra non ha nulla da nascondere, perché non invita esperti russi a collaborare all’inchiesta? I loro specialisti non sono forse di parte? Non mi fido dell’intellugence britannica. Ha coinvolto gli esperti dell’Opac [l’organizzazione per la proibizione delle armi chimiche ndr.] tre settimane dopo l’avvelenamento, presentando solo prove da loro selezionate”.
La donna si dice dubbiosa su quanto davvero accaduto allo zio e alla cugina, accennando alla presenza, nei pressi di Salisbury, “del laboratorio di Porton Down“, il più importante centro britannico per la ricerca sulle armi chimiche.

Viktoria e la cugina Julia

Quando alla cugina Julia, fu lei la prima a darle voce dopo lo scampato pericolo, rivelando l’audio di una sua conversazione telefonica. “Mi ha chiamata una seconda volta. Mi salutava sempre: ‘Ciao Vic!’ Nelle due telefonate da Londra, invece, è stata molto formale, come se avesse qualcuno accanto”.
“Nella seconda conversazione, mi ha accusato di non poter tornare in Russia per colpa mia, perché ho reso il suo avvelenamento di pubblico dominio. Io? Ho dato la prima intervista a fine marzo”. Ricordiamo, sul punto, che l’avvelenamento fu reso pubblico a inizio marzo.
Nell’intervista, Viktoria dice di voler incontrare la cugina. Più che sciocca la domanda in proposito: “Perché ci tiene tanto ad andare?”… Come, i suoi parenti sono stati avvelenati, sono stati in fin di vita, sono scomparsi dalla circolazione, dato che ora sono in una località segreta, e ci si chiede anche perché li si voglia incontrare?
Misteri del giornalismo… ma andiamo alla risposta: “Ho una delega di mia nonna. Voglio solo che mio zio riprenda a chiamarla per dirle che è tutto ok. Non sa quello che è successo e non capisce perché non ci chiami più. E voglio incontrare Julia. Voglio che mi dica in faccia quello che mi ha detto al telefono per capire se mente”.
In effetti, non si comprende affatto perché le autorità britanniche non hanno voluto che Viktoria Skripal vedesse i parenti, stante che si potevano prendere tutte le precauzioni del caso per evitare che scoprisse il luogo della sua nuova residenza e altro. Ma tante sono le cose che non si comprendono in questa brutta faccenda…

"Putin ha un altro cadavere di cui rispondere". L'incredibile conclusione del Corriere della Sera sul caso Amesbury
Da ieri sera, il Cremlino, che continua a negare tutto, ha un altro cadavere di cui rispondere” afferma oggi il Corriere della Sera in un avventuroso articolo a firma Luigi Ippolito.



Ma con buona pace del Corriere che pretende di avere la verità in tasca, è sempre più fitto il mistero del presunto Novichok che, a quattro mesi di distanza dal famigerato caso Skripal, ieri ha provocato la morte di Dawn Sturgess (compagna di Charlie Rowley, anche lui “contaminato da Novichok” e ricoverato in ospedale dal 30 giugno).

Intanto – ce lo domandiamo ancora una volta – perché mai il Novichok, “cento volte più micidiale del Sarin”, avrebbe impiegato ben dieci giorni per agire? E, visto che ci siamo, come avrebbero fatto i due ad entrare in contatto con il Novichok in un area che, per quattro mesi, era stata setacciata da centinaia di poliziotti? Una fiala usata dai russi nel precedente attentato, gettata per terra e passata inosservata per tanto tempo?

Davvero inverosimile.
Per ora la pista più interessante è che la coppia Sturgess-Rowley, alla perenne ricerca di droga, si sarebbe contaminata con “Novichock” frugando in un mucchio di fiale di crak, nascosto dagli spacciatori tra i cespugli del parco cittadino di Salisbury.

Se così fosse, prenderebbe corpo l’ipotesi (ne avevamo già accennato in un precedente articolo) di un nuovo caso Bruce Edwards Ivins; e cioè che a spargere un intruglio simile al Novichok  sia qualcuno che lavora nel vicino stabilimento per armi chimiche di Porton Down e che - come Bruce Edwards Ivins - pretende di “ripulire” la zona, colpendo,  personaggi screditati come Skripal o tossicodipendenti.

Una ipotesi ardita? Sempre meglio della certificata bufala del  Novichok di Putin.

          La liturgia laica delle magliette rosse      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Sapete dove potete infilarvi le magliettine rosse? Ma prima dite la verità e fate mea culpa sulla Siria


Parlando dei modesti, Arthur Schitzler metteva in guardia con queste parole: “Non immaginate con quale commosso orgoglio coltivano le loro debolezze”. Mi è tornata in mente questa frase ieri, quando questo Paese ormai senza più capo, né coda celebrava la liturgia laica delle magliette rosse, ovvero l’ultima brillante mossa anti-Salvini, questa volta architettata da Don Ciotti, che automaticamente garantità al ministro dell’Interno e al suo partito un altro 2% nel sondaggio di Mentana domani sera. Non l’hanno proprio capita, non ci arrivano: non è bastata la colossale figura di merda collezionata dalla rivista Rolling Stone, il cui appello arcobaleno sempre contro il leader leghista e la sua politica migratoria è stato sbugiardato a tempo di record da almeno tre firmatari vip “a loro insaputa”, devono andare avanti.


A Roma, capitale di un popolano buonsenso un po’ volgare, si usa una formula molto efficace: gli entra più in culo che in testa. E direi che, in punta di vernacolo, mai definizione di autolesionismo fu più azzeccata. Ma la questione non è la pagliacciata delle magliette rosse, non è il Rolex in bella mostra d Gad Lerner o la faccia da partigiano 2.0 di Roberto Saviano, quelle sono quisquiglie, pinzellacchere come direbbe Totò. La questione è sostanziale, ovvero la mancanza di memoria di questo Paese. Quello che ho utilizzato come fotografia di copertina è il passaggio fondamentale del report preliminare pubblicato venerdì dall’OPCW, l’Organizzazione per la proibizione dell’uso di armi chimiche, ente chiamato a mettere la parola fine all’annosa diatriba relativa o meno all’uso di agenti nervini nella cosiddetta “strage di Douma”, quella che stava portando il mondo verso la Terza Guerra Mondiale, almeno stando alla narrativa pre-incontro di Helsinki fra Trump e Putin.

Immagino che ricordiate quei giorni, immagino che non possiate aver scordato le parole, i toni e i paragoni che vennero scomodati per dipingere Bashar al-Assad, i suoi militari e i russi che davano loro man forte (nella lotta all’ISIS, quella che fa formalmente strage nei mercatini di Natale in Germania e lungo la Promenade des Anglais a Nizza, tanto per ricordarlo). Furono citati Hitler e tutti i gerarchi del Terzo Reich, Erode perché ovviamente erano i bambini le vittime principali e maggiormente mediatiche, il Male di arendtiana memoria la cui banalità tornava crudelmente fra noi sotto le spoglie del rais di Damasco. E ancora e ancora, chi più ne aveva, più nel metteva nel cesto dell’indignazione da discount. E cosa fece il buon Roberto Saviano? Lanciò anche allora una crociata, una bella foto con la mano sulla bocca a simboleggiare l’impossibilità di respirare dei bambini di Douma per i gas venefici del regime.

Nemmeno a dirlo, il fior fiore delle nullità elevate a stereotipo di vip si lanciarono in entusiaste emulazioni del gesto. Gad Lerner, addirittura, quando la cosiddetta “guerra civile” siriana era da poco scoppiata (e quando miliziani e mercenari di almeno 11 Paesi erano già sul territorio sovrano della Siria con l’unica finalità di sovvertirne il governo, debitamente armati e addestrati a tal fine da governi del Golfo e occidentali) si lanciò in una profezia, in perfetto stile Piero Fassino devo dire con il senno di poi: dopo Saddam Hussein, ora erano i giorni di Assad ad essere contati, chi aveva puntato sul despota di Damasco aveva perso. Quando si ha a che fare con fini analisti simili, occorre solo togliersi il cappello.
E vogliamo ricordare i servizi di Lucia Goracci e Giovanna Botteri? Le centinaia di ospedali pediatrici colpiti scientemente dai raid russi? E vogliamo dimenticarci dell’appello di Rula Jebreal a “PiazzaPulita” per denunciare l’inizio di una sorta di campagna di stupro sistematico in Siria, dopo la caduta delle roccaforti dei ribelli nelle mani di Assad e dei russi? O vogliamo forse scordarci quel capolavoro assoluto di propaganda del forno crematorio di Assad alle porte di Damasco, bufala confezionata (anche male, fra l’altro) da Amnesty International e immediatamente spacciata urbi et orbi dal duo Mentana-Mimum, i quali ovviamente non resistettero alle tentazione malata di paragonare quell’edificio e i suoi comignoli fumanti ai camini di Auschwitz. Bene, ora è l’ente chiamato a esprimersi al riguardo a dirci che a Douma non fu usato nessun agente chimico, nessun gas nervino: avete sentito un fiato nei tg da venerdì ad oggi? E sui giornali?

Non dico le prime pagine che per giorni chiesero ai volenterosi di turno di radere al suolo l’impero del Male che risiedeva a Damasco e la sua appendice moscovita ma nemmeno un titolo di spalla, una fotonotizia, un boxino con un minimo di dignità. Nulla, siccome a Douma le cose non sono andate come la propaganda intendeva andassero, Douma non è mai esistita. D’altronde, ora è cambiata anche la narrativa, la Russia non pare più così cattiva. Il Russiagate, altra grande specialità della stampa “libera” internazionale è sparito, roba da chiamare Federica Sciarelli, il nuovo caso di avvelenamento in Gran Bretagna non viene praticamente cagato da nessuno, avendo l’accoppiata May-Johnson pestato più merde che un ballerino di tip tap in una stalla e persino dalle cronache dei Mondiali di calcio non arrivano vibrate denunce di violazione della libertà di stampa o di un gay trozkista della Siberia apostrofato come “frocio” in un bar prima di Francia-Uruguay.

Certo, Gianni Riotta ci ha provato ma, anche in questo caso, la figura di merda ottenuta lo ha convinto a desistere. Una cosa va notata, a parziale sostegno di un minimo sindacale di russofobia da Dipartimento di Stato: ad ogni campionato di calcio, scatta l’allarme hooligans. Ovunque. In Russia non è volato nemmeno un bicchiere di plastica finora ma nessuno sembra averlo fatto notare, di colpo la violenza calcistica non è più argomento in discussione: altrimenti, toccherebbe dire che basta una polizia come quella russa per risolvere sul nascere il problema ma equivarrebbe a promuovere certi metodi alla Putin, quindi silenzio.
Ma quel silenzio va bene, non fa male a nessuno, se non alla buona fede residua che potrebbe ancora albergare in qualche giornalista. A fare male è il silenzio su Douma, soprattutto da parte dei signori in maglietta rossa, quelli delle porte aperte e dei rifugiati da accogliere. Gli stessi rifugiati che stanno alla radice stessa della crisi europea dei migranti cui oggi si cerca di dare una risposta meno ipocrita di quella fornita finora: perché tutto è iniziato nel 2015, dopo la foto del piccolo Aylan morto sulla spiaggia turca. In quel preciso istante, la guerra siriana è divenuta strumento di propaganda della campagna elettorale americana in fieri per le presidenziali dell’anno dopo e per la messa in stato d’accusa mondiale di Assad.

In quel preciso istante, Angela Merkel ha aperto indiscriminatamente le porte a 1,5 milioni di persone: scoperchiando, di fatto, il vaso di Pandora non solo di una guerra voluta, organizzata, sostenuta e finanziata da potenze estere per fini meramente geopolitici che avevano come conditio sine qua non la caduta del regime di Assad ma anche di un sommovimento epocale dall’Africa verso l’Europa che, dati di provenienza dei “migranti” alla mano, tutto ha a che fare, tranne che con il concetto di profugo di guerra. In compenso, in Siria per quella guerra infame si è morti davvero, si è scappati da casa, si è dovuto abbandonare tutto, pregare e piangere fra le rovine, mentre gli “Elmetti bianchi” elogiati da Saviano usavano i loro falsi stage per proporsi all’Oscar per gli effetti speciali, tallonati a breve distanza dalla CNN. Oggi, poco a poco, sta tornando la normalità in gran parte della Siria ma, come sempre, nel silenzio complice di chi non accetta quell’epilogo così poco umanitario e così poco spendibile in tv o nelle campagne di sensibilizzazione.

Chi ieri ha indossato una maglietta rossa ma non ha detto una parola su Douma o su tutte le altre infami bugie che stanno in cima alle lista dei motivi che hanno scatenato un inferno in terra di morte e dolore per quella gente e per quel Paese, non è solo complice. E’ responsabile. In prima persona. E ha fatto bene a mettere una maglietta colore del sangue, perché quello innocente versato in Siria ricadrà a vita su quella specie di coscienza in leasing che sfoggia su Instagram, mostrando al mondo il suo profilo migliore e la sua umanità da social. Ora, levate la maglietta rossa, infilatevela dove dico io e, soprattutto, provate a dormire. Se ci riuscite.

Buonisti col Rolex


di Giuliano Guzzo
Tutti contro Gad Lerner, che per fermare «l’emorragia di umanità» sul tema dei migranti, ha aderito a #magliettarossa, appello condiviso da Laura Boldrini (male), facendosi immortalare con una camicia rossa sul suo terrazzo a Portofino, con tanto Rolex in vista (malissimo). Stranamente, infatti, sul web molti non hanno trovato il grido di dolore portifinese del giornalista credibile, riservandogli di conseguenza gli epiteti che potete immaginare. E dire che bastava poco per intravedere nella camicia rubino sfoggiata dal Nostro, chiaramente uno straccio rimediato al mercato, tutta la sua lacerante contrizione per i disperati del globo.

Inoltre a Lerner andrebbe pure riconosciuta l’originalità di essersi fatto trovare a Portino anziché nella solita Capalbio. Battute a parte, è evidente che il problema non sta tanto nella condizione, non proprio trascurata, dell’incauto conduttore televisivo che, come l’orologio rotto segna l’ora giusta due volte al giorno, avrebbe potuto pure imbroccarne una: mai dire mai. Il punto sta nella siderale distanza in cui alcuni, a loro insaputa, si trovano quando non solo dimenticano il nervosismo popolare su temi come quello dell’immigrazione, ma seguitano a stazionare sul loro pulpitino dorato, beati e moraleggianti, come nulla fosse. E non si rendono conto d’esser diventati buonisti col Rolex.

E INVECE NOI CI STIAMO. UN DOCUMENTO DI CATTOLICI RISPONDE A PAX CHRISTI SU IMMIGRAZIONE E TRAFFICO.


Cari amici e nemici di Stilum Curiae, abbiamo ricevuto, e volentieri pubblichiamo un documento di cattolici in risposta alla presa di posizione di Pax Christi, relativo alle decisioni di blocco del traffico di esseri umani dall’Africa e da altri Paesi verso l’Europa e l’Italia in particolare. Ci sembra un documento molto interessante e dalle motivazioni condivisibili.
NOI INVECE CI STIAMO
Indirizzandomi a voi, signore e signori che vi riunite in questo luogo da oltre trent’anni, ora, in nome del primato delle realtà culturali del luogo, delle comunità umane, dei popoli e delle nazioni, vi dico: vigilate, con tutti i mezzi a vostra disposizione, su questa sovranità fondamentale che possiede ogni nazione in virtù della sua propria cultura. Proteggetela come la pupilla dei vostri occhi per l’avvenire della grande famiglia umana. Proteggetela! (Giovanni Paolo II, discorso all’ONU, giugno 1980)
Riferendoci alle parole di Giovanni Paolo II che ci invitano a favorire il radicamento geografico e culturale dei popoli come antidoto alle politiche di stampo laicista funzionali a taluni interessi economici e finanziari, desideriamo prospettare qui un punto di vista diverso e integrativo rispetto a quella espresso da alcuni vescovi cattolici firmatari dell’appello di Pax Christi: tale appello è avverso le decisioni del governo italiano sulla questione immigratoria.
Una quota significativa di cattolici, che qui idealmente rappresentiamo, tuttavia la pensa diversamente.
Non vorremmo infatti che la posizione di Pax Christi, certamente rispettabile, sia percepita come esaustiva dell’intero mondo cattolico il quale invece sul tema presenta posizione ben diverse, se non decisamente divergenti.
A differenza di quanto sostenuto nella lettera pubblicata da Pax Christi dal titolo  “Noi non ci stiamo”  altri laici cattolici riguardo la questione immigratoria, invece ci stanno nel senso che condividono le decisioni prese a questo proposito da taluni ministri di cui non temiamo di fare nomi e cognomi:  il ministro Salvini e il ministro Toninelli in particolare.
Dunque noi invece ci stiamo perché non possiamo restare inattivi ad osservare come scriteriate politiche immigratorie non aliene peraltro da probabilissime connotazioni affaristiche, rischino di provocare una serie di conseguenze negative sia sul piano dell’allarme sociale, sia sul livello dei salari, sia sulla qualità dei servizi erogati dallo stato, sia ovviamente sul benessere psicofisico degli immigrati che quasi sempre transitano da una condizione di povertà all’altra senza nulla risolvere dei problemi che li hanno indotti ad emigrare.
Inoltre:
noi ci stiamoperché vogliamo porre fine alle deportazioni da una sponda all’altra del Mediterraneo come hanno numerose volte invitato a fare anche vescovi africani. I quali tuttavia quando si dibatte di problemi legati all’emigrazione trovano scarsa udienza in Vaticano, forse perché sono già disponibili altri esperti in materia di orientamento laicista come dimostra la loro abituale frequentazione con alcuni esponenti della chiesa cattolica;
noi ci stiamoperché  il diritto a non emigrare deve prevalere sul diritto ad emigrare per due motivi: primo perché il diritto a non emigrare è una indicazione posta da Benedetto XVI, personalità da noi altamente stimata; secondo perché il presunto diritto a emigrare in realtà non è un diritto, ma è un obbligo di cui gli emigranti farebbero volentieri a meno se solo qualcuno li aiutasse a restare nello loro terre come peraltro la chiesa si è impegnata a fare per secoli tramite le sue missioni;
noi ci stiamoperché vogliamo evitare clamorosi fraintendimenti sul significato della parola “aiutare”: “aiutare” infatti non significa sostituire ai desideri dell’aiutato le categorie mentali dell’aiutante, ma al contrario considerare le soluzioni che l’aiutato stesso ha elaborato come soluzione ai suoi problemi. Nel caso specifico alla domanda se preferirebbero vivere dignitosamente nella loro terra o essere costretti a emigrare la stragrande maggioranza degli immigrati non avrebbe dubbi a preferire la prima soluzione. Ed è a vantaggio di essa che noi tutti ci dobbiamo adoperare senza pretendere di imporre razzisticamente le nostre soluzioni sovrapponendole a quelle ideate da chi di aiuto è bisognoso;
noi ci stiamoperché preferiamo affrontare il problema migratorio in termini di cooperazione e collaborazione cioè in una prospettiva  strutturale molto più che in termini di assistenzialismo cioè in un’ottica emergenziale;
noi ci stiamoperché, come correttamente dichiara il catechismo della chiesa cattolica al numero2241:
Le nazioni più ricche sono tenute ad accogliere, nella misura del possibile, lo straniero alla ricerca della sicurezza e delle risorse necessarie alla vita, che non gli è possibile trovare nel proprio paese di origine. I pubblici poteri avranno cura che venga rispettato il diritto naturale, che pone l’ospite sotto la protezione di coloro che lo accolgono. Le autorità politiche, in vista del bene comune, di cui sono responsabili, possono subordinarel’esercizio del diritto di immigrazione a diverse condizioni giuridiche, in particolare al rispetto dei doveri dei migranti nei confronti del paese che li accoglie. L’immigrato è tenuto a rispettare con riconoscenza il patrimonio materiale e spirituale del paese che lo ospita, ad obbedire alle sue leggi, a contribuire ai suoi oneri.
Siamo peraltro  convinti che proprio dei vescovi cattolici non vogliano venir meno ai precetti del catechismo che, come sappiamo, altro non è se non il compendio degli insegnamenti del magistero cattolico che, in quanto tale, deve prevalere su qualsiasi opinione personale di qualsivoglia vescovo o prelato;
noi ci stiamosemplicemente perché occorre conservare l’esame di realtà il quale ci obbliga a considerare che un processo immigratorio massiccio e fuori controllo anziché favorire la pace fomenta il conflitto specialmente se le sue conseguenze negative ricadono su fasce della popolazioni autoctone già in condizioni di grave precariato materiale e psicologico;
noi ci stiamoperché non è chiaro per quale oscuro motivo l’Italia debba sobbarcarsi un problema così enorme nell’indifferenza  della quasi totalità dei paesi UE che solo recentemente e solo grazie alla prese di posizione del vigente governo, hanno cominciato ad agire;
noi ci stiamo ed oltre a starcici domandiamo come mai alcune realtà cattoliche accusino di scarsa sensibilità il governo italiano mentre non si sentono in dovere di dire una sola parola sul disimpegno di altre nazioni europee che fino a ieri rifiutavano sistematicamente qualsiasi ingresso sul loro territorio sia da confini marittimi che terrestri. Non vorremmo che tali disparità di trattamento dipendano da posizioni ideologiche preconcette;
noi ci stiamoperché vogliamo che il nostro massimo impegno dedicato al dramma emigratorio sia affrontato in termini di razionalità giacché è noto come solo da una considerazione razionale dei problemi scaturisce anche la sensibilità necessaria per risolverli; viceversa un approccio solo emotivo rende opaca la capacità di trovare soluzioni efficaci.
Sensibilità ed emotività sono due aspetti psicologici che per quanto siano apparentemente analoghi, differiscono profondamente.
Sarebbe infine auspicabile denunciare con forza anche e soprattutto la cause endogene che determinano la fuga dai luoghi natii di masse sempre più sterminate di persone fra cui, oltre alla fame e alla guerra, dobbiamo annoverare l’inettitudine e corruzione di alcuni governi dei paesi di provenienza di cui si parla molto meno di quanto si parli della presunta insensibilità di quelli di arrivo.
Concludiamo questa nostra nella speranza che lo stesso vigore, lo stesso impegno, la stessa volizione investita a proposito della questione immigratoria possa essere impiegata da tutto il mondo cattolico anche su altri fronti che molti credenti laici ritengono di pressante urgenza quali, ad esempio, la tutela della famiglia naturale, l’aborto, le nuove povertà che affliggono gli italiani bianchi o neri che siano, l’invadenza di istanze laiciste militanti nel determinare gli orientamenti etici del paese ormai da vari anni, la vigilanza sulla correttezza dottrinale di certi pastori.
E a proposito di accoglienza non cesseremo mai di operare con la massima energia perché pure gli altri argomenti da noi indicati come prioritari siano anch’essi accolti.
Firmato
Un gruppo di cattolici cattolici.

BRUSSELS >> With Europe’s wary eyes upon him, President Donald Trump launched a weeklong trip there today with harsh criticism for NATO allies and predicted the “easiest” leg of his journey would be his scheduled sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

President Trump begins a diplomatic gauntlet when he departs for Brussels on Tuesday. We discuss what's ahead for Trump during the NATO summit and his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin with Leon Panetta, who served as both CIA director and secretary of defense under President Obama. Also, we remember Leo Sarkisian, creator of the Voice of America radio show "Music Time in Africa." Sarkisian died in June at age 97. And immigrant children in Denmark as young as 1 year old must attend day care for 30 hours a week for instruction in "Danish values," according to a new law that's part of a broader "ghetto package" designed to force immigrants living in 25 mostly Muslim enclaves to assimilate.

Don't give up on hope. 


A daily column on what the ALP have as a policy, supported by a local member, and how it has 'helped' the local community. I'll stop if I cannot identify a policy. Feel free to make suggestions. Contact me on FB, not twitter. I have twitter, but never look at it. 

Gabrielle Williams was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, working with the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing and the Minister for Families and Children. 


As part of the November 24th Vic election campaign I have a petition I want to bring before the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy. I believe Matthew will be the next premier of Victoria and so I am petitioning him as I raise the issues of Employment, Crime and Education in Dandenong. I am also seeking money for my campaign. I don't have party resources, and so my campaign is on foot, and on the internet. Any money I receive that is not spent on the campaign will go to Grow 4 Life. I am asking questions like "What do you love about Dandenong?" and "If you could change something in Dandenong to make it better, what would it be?" I'm not limiting the questions to state issues. I'm happy to discuss anything, and get things done.

I am a decent man and don't care for the abuse given me. I created a video raising awareness of anti police feeling among western communities. I chose the senseless killing of Nicola Cotton, a Louisiana policewoman who joined post Katrina, to highlight the issue. I did this in order to get an income after having been illegally blacklisted from work in NSW for being a whistleblower. I have not done anything wrong. Local council appointees refused to endorse my work, so I did it for free. Youtube's Adsence refused to allow me to profit from their marketing it. Meanwhile, I am hostage to abysmal political leadership and hopeless journalists. My shopfront has opened on Facebook.

Here is a video I made Mystery of Webster's Curse

Some things should not happen, but they do. Kevin Rudd as PM was highly lauded for apologising to Australian Aborigines. It was an empty gesture, but an attempted travesty as he moved to end the intervention in the North of Australia saving lives of Aboriginal peoples. Aboriginal people are suffering from left wing compassion which seems to promote criminal and decadent behaviour. So that Aboriginal children have got high levels of sexually transmitted diseases. Drunken behaviour and dysfunctional families characterise what has become a cargo culture. Rudd effectively apologised for early welfare groups that tried to help foundlings and the dispossessed. Rudd referred to a myth of a stolen generation in which very few have been identified who were stolen from their parents to be raised by the state. It was an empty gesture of Rudd, but he is still highly lauded for it. 

It is apparent that Turnbull can not achieve anything worthwhile as PM, except further humiliation. So he must be looking for a note on which to finish so as to define his term. Turnbull is looking for a Rudd like empty gesture. Same sex marriage could be that. A plebiscite is the policy which the Liberals took to the last election, with no back up plan, and the senate won't allow it because many independents, and the ALP and Greens, feel discussion for such a plebiscite might mean that the plebiscite fails. Pesky democracy. So now a Lib backbencher, possibly with Turnbull's encouragement, is threatening to cross the party floor and move for a parliamentary vote without a plebiscite or discussion. Personally, I don't feel government should be involved with people's sex lives where consent is achieved, but I also want protection for churches which act on conscience, something a members bill might not do. There are lots of legal things I would never do. An empty gesture like Rudd's for which Turnbull can point as a crowning achievement. It is probably too late for Turnbull to bear a child while in office.

My books "History in a Year by the Conservative Voice" are available, recommended for those age ten and up. They have an essay or two on current affairs for each day of each month. They also list events, births, deaths and holidays and observances for each day around the world. But unless you ask a Library to stock it for you, they will not do so. One public Library feels they are too specialised. 

No news yet as to wether the fierce battle of half wits will decide who will be the next ALP leader between Shorten, Albanese, Plibersek or Clare. Clare looks better in a suit. Nobody is challenging random phrase generator Turnbull, yet, either. Turnbull has declared “We have resolved this election! Ringing stuff. Hopefully Scott Morrison will move soon before Turnbull melts completely. Compulsory voting has not prevented the lowest turnout for the major parties in Liberal Party history. ALP recording their second worst result since last time. Liberals going backwards while their coalition colleagues, Nationals, still progressed. Turnbull deposed Mr Abbott under the false pretence of explaining policy better and being better at elections. Now the vote is over, Turnbull can resign. Or face further humiliation. 

For some, at the moment, the Sex Party has more credibility.

Democrat hatred for the United States cultural assets is longstanding. In South Carolina, in 1962, a Democrat Governor put up the confederate flag on their capitol building while taking credit for improving educational standards while opposing integration. The flag is coming down now, a symbol exploited by bigots and haters. It is difficult to know when it was anything else. The current governor is Nikki Haley. She is GOP. 

ALP leader Bill Shorten is the bastard boss portrayed in union attack adverts on Work Choices. He failed to adequately explain his union leader decisions from back in the day. Shorten smeared the High Court Judge instead, claiming Dyson Heydon is Mr Abbott's pawn. Shorten's leadership is exposed and so the eye of voters wanders to look at others. And the alternatives are showing voters what they have got. Tanya Plibersek, ALP Deputy leader, complains she is losing the ability to feed herself. The compelling vision is clearly calculated to inspire sympathy from ALP supporters at the grass roots. They will be needed to change the leadership. Jason Clare says he doesn't know why the government is turning back boats because the policy won't work. In fantasy terms, Clare is a compelling candidate because he has never been leader before and therefore all his mistakes have been someone else's fault. Something ALP members find appealing. But it isn't only ALP members campaigning for Shorten's position. Sarah Hanson-Young is going on sea patrol. She is going to the Mediterranean seas to find lost migrants. It is much nicer there in Summer than Australia in Winter. ALP should be happy with her embarrassment of leadership choices. 
From 2014
Hundreds of millions of tweets over just one soccer match. But it was an unusual match. By way of contrast, Netherlands vs Argentina did not get the same coverage as Germany vs Brazil. But then Germany spanked Brazil 7-1 in front of a home crowd for Brazil. It doesn't get more upsetting in world sport .. anywhere. The result is career changing for all involved. Netherlands beat Spain 5-1 earlier in the tournament, but did not carry on with that form. Germany have done well, but need to maintain it to win the tournament. That is their goal. 

Today is the anniversary of an equivalent match as Argentina vs Netherlands has been, 48 BC had Julius Ceaser pitted against Pompey at Battle of Dyrrhachium. It was precipitous, and Ceaser risked all by accident, but nothing happened as two heavyweights faced off. Technically, Pompey won and so he went to face Ceaser again at Pharsalos with all the advantages .. yet lost everything. What had happened was Ceaser had sailed to Dyrrhachium through an enemy force in winter .. and got trapped with a much smaller force that could not resupply. Mark Antony marched to his aid, and Pompey moved to prevent the reuniting. The upshot was that Pompey had a force behind fortifications and Ceaser chose to starve him out by building more fortifications. Pompey had sea access to supplies, but could not feed his livestock. Ceaser's men were hungry, but when spring came, Ceaser would hold all the advantages. Pompey broke out of his enclosure and marched to Pharsalos. How will Argentina fare against Germany? How will Brazil against Netherlands? So much has happened, but the future is uncertain, and anything might prove all the difference.

Also on this day, but in the year 645, was the Isshi incident in Japan which transformed Japan and involved their honour system in a way that seems incomprehensible if one is not Japanese. 
Two princes, Nakatomi no KamatariPrince Naka no Ōe, conspired to kill a third, Soga no Iruka. The attack took place in front of Empress Kōgyoku during a court ceremony. Iruka was not killed during the first attack, but pleaded his case to the Empress, who retired to consider it. A second attack in front of the Empress finished Iruka and put the Empress in a difficult position, she was unclean because of the murder in her presence. So she stepped aside, but not for the killer, but his older brother. The killer became a monk.  And after a few reigns, Emperor. It was a family affair. Much like that big family of soccer fans watching the events unfold in the world cup. 

Also on this day, Lady Jane Grey took the throne of England in 1553. It was not a blessing for her. Neither was it a blessing when Richard Neville defeated Lancastrian forces of Henry VI in 1460. The Vellore mutiny against the British East India company happened on this day in 1806, but the Sepoys had to wait another hundred and forty two years to see independence for India. US Democrat President Andrew Jackson moved to kill the second US bank in 1832, setting in train a position of inept fiscal rectitude all Democrat Presidents have followed. Death Valley recorded a temperature of 57 degrees centigrade in 1913. It has been cooler ever since. In 1997, scientists reported DNA analysis of a Neanderthal that favoured the 'out of Africa' theory for human development, with an 'Eve' existing 100k to 200k years ago (She was a good woman who liked kids). Born on this day was John Calvin in 1509, Nikola Tesla in 1856, Marcel Proust in 1871, Harvey Ball 1921, Jake LaMotta 1921, Arlo Guthrie 1941 and Sunil Gavaskar in 1949.

          What If Jonathan Chait Has Been a Useful Idiot Since 2013?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Back in 2013, when former Communist Party member Ron Radosh was whipping up a Pravda-style disinformation campaign against my anti-communist bookAmerican Betrayal, New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait stepped up and wrote an essay knocking "West's paranoia." While I'm not certain, I strongly suspect Chait was inveigled by Radosh to write the New York Magazine piece; I imagine Radosh blanched at Chait's positive-ish headline: "Conservative Historian Has Interesting Ideas."

Still, Chait's essay bears the familiar stamp of the Radosh/Horowitz-led assault in its repeated misrepresentations of my footnoted analysis of the influence (not "control") on US policy-making potentially exerted by hundreds of Soviet "agents of influence" and fellow travelers covertly embedded inside the US government -- the subversive force that "court historians," who bestow glory on political favorites rather than shed light on the past, ignore or deny to this day. Not that it is likely journalista Chait cracked the book. All he had to do was pretend, a la Radosh & Horowitz, that I had advanced a theory, as Chait put it, that "the Soviets controlled the American government in the way they controlled, say, East Germany." As any reader knows, this is cartoonish rubbish -- but a handy way to deceive readers into dismissing the book as such.

I am reminded of this because Chait has now spun up an East-Germany-style vision of Donald Trump as Putin's Honecker, a traitor to the USA since 1987. 

Titled "What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987?," the Chait piece does not even rise to the level of "conspiracy theory," Chait having presented no conspiracy to theorize about. His technique is to raise, magnify and connect doubts. "How do you even think about the small but real chance — 10 percent? 20 percent? — that the president of the United States has been covertly influenced or personally compromised by a hostile foreign power for decades?" he asks. One answer is, you write a few thousand pointless words.

But only about Trump. Chait takes everything back to Trump's July 1987 visit to Moscow. That's because in September of that same year Trump took out a series of full-page ads in prominent newspapers noting that "Japan and other nations have been taking advantage of the United States.″ In his open letter to the American people, Trump asked, ″Why are these nations not paying the United States for the human lives and billions of dollars we are losing to protect their interests?"

Classic Trump -- or was it really Gorbachev in disguise? As Chait notes, it is the Kremlin's propensity to seek splits between the US and its allies. He writes: "The safest assumption is that it’s entirely coincidental that Trump launched a national campaign, with himself as spokesman, built around themes that dovetailed closely with Soviet foreign-policy goals shortly after his Moscow stay. Indeed, it seems slightly insane to contemplate the possibility that a secret relationship between Trump and Russia dates back this far. But it can’t be dismissed completely." (Emphasis added.)

OK, I won't dismiss it completely. But it is also a fact that Japan by this same point in the mid-1980s was making massive inroads into the US construction market, very much including Manhattan. One Japanese company even built a 20-story addition on top of a building formerly owned by Donald Trump, as the New York Times noted in an article on the expanding share of Japanese construction business in the US. In its story of July 27, 1986, the Times noted: "Japanese construction companies certainly have both the cash and the contacts to create more and more American business. `'Any major Japanese contractor has money to burn,' said an officer of one leading Japanese builder, who asked not to be identified."

Nah, that couldn't possibly have driven Developer Donald a little nuts, eventually inspiring him to take out those ads the following year to tell the American people that we (and he) were being taken advantage of. The Kremlin made him do it.   

I jest, of course. The point is, Chait would have rather more credibility on this score if, when the "party line" was a little different, he had not previously rejected on cue the copious historical record of Kremlin influence assembled in American Betrayal as "West's paranoia." Indeed, I don't recall Chait raising, magnifying and connecting such doubts about, say, the Moscow trip of Bill Clinton, whose "themes" as a draft-dodging, war-protesting tourist certainly "dovetailed closely with Soviet foreign-policy goals" both before and after his1969-1970 winter travels to Brezhnev's Moscow, then Prague, still reeling from the Soviet crushing of "Prague Spring."

Then there's what has been regrettably nicknamed the Trump "pee tape." Chait: "There is growing reason to think the pee tape might indeed exist." Really? Well, there is also reason (whether growing, I can't say) to think that the Czech intelligence recruitment tape of Bill Clinton might indeed exist. Meanwhile, the tape of Barack Obama promising "flexibility" to, as Chait aptly calls him, "former KGB agent" Putin via Medvedev does exist. I know it does because I've seen it. Has Jonathan Chait? (Watch here.) While he's on this sudden Kremlin Influence kick, Chait would also do well to peruse the FBI files on the Soviet/communist connected family of Obama senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, and also brush up on the Soviet/communist troika that politically birthed that winning 2008 team of Obama-Axelrod-Jarrett. 

It's guaranteed he won't because Chait's pursuits are not about truth-seeking or intellectual stimulation; they are all and only about political manipulation. Nowhere is his agit prop more thickly laid on than when he talks about Donald Trump as Putin's "much-needed flank against not just Obama but his former secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aggressive position against Russia." In transforming Hillary "Reset" Clinton into a regular George Patton, Chait conveniently omits the valuable goodies Obama-Clinton bestowed on Mother Russia, from permanent normal trading status, long coveted by the "former KGB agent," to the massive "civilian" high tech transfer via the Clinton-Foundation-enriching Skolkovo set-up, where, as the Army warned in 2013, hypersonic cruise missile engine technology was already coming online. One has to wonder: Does Chait really think the KGB-linked bank in Moscow gave Bill Clinton that $500K speaking fee in 2012 for nothing? Meanwhile, ask yourself: If you are sitting in the Politburo and one US candidate is promising to revitalize the US military, very much including its nuclear arsenal (Trump), and the other US candidate is arguing that "the last thing we need" is next-generation nuclear-armed cruise missiles (Clinton), whom would you rather "collude" with?

Such thoughts, however, pose a clear and present danger to Chait's miasmic belief that "the Cold War that Americans had long considered won has dissolved into the bizarre spectacle of Reagan’s party’s abetting the hijacking of American government by a former KGB agent." 

For the record, I will note that American Betrayal argues America lost the "Cold War," that ever-undermined-from-within struggle against the expansion and entrenchment of communistic ideologies. This probably accounts for some share of the wrath it aroused on the part of Cold War triumphalists who seek to ensure Americans never actually understand how our institutions, from the halls of power in Washington (definitely including the "IC") to the pulpits to the campuses to the culture, were long ago Marxified according to well-executed and well-documented Kremlin strategy executed by masses of genuine American traitors.  

If America lost the Cold War long ago -- after also losing World War II, American Betrayal's other argument, identifying the Soviet Union as the true victor (thanks to those hundreds of agents of influence at the beating heart of every government, Allied and Axis) --  then it cannot be "Reagan's party abetting the hijacking of the American government" in 2016; it was already a long way toward a fait accompli before Trump ever began his completely unlikely and wholly unexpected political rise on a heretofore unseen counter-revolutionary "America First" platform. 

Chait's essay, then, is just so much narrative control, just so much framing, just so much warding off of the counter-revolution that President Trump's victory made possible, at least. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if it all didn't begin with a heavy dose of Radosh.

なりがちなので、その守備負担を軽減する意味でも、DFを入れて分担をするというのは、普通の考え方ではないかと思うが。

しかないが、たとえ相手に拾われてしまっても、対人守備で「やらせない」ようにするしかない。そこは、最終ラインDFとボランチ等が協力してボール保持者にアタックするしかない。DFラインの裏にボールがこぼれたら、最後の砦のGKに頑張っても… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…

最終ラインに高さを補強すると攻撃面では劣勢になりがちとなるが、後ろでパス交換はDF3名+GK+ボランチ、と相手3トップで前線プレスが来てもかわし易い、ということもあるので、ある程度落ち付いてボール保持・パス回しが可能となろう。時間をうまく使え、というのは、そういう意味合いである。
