          В Киеве попытались захватить университет «Украина»       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Неизвестные ворвались в здание университета «Украина» в Киеве и якобы взяли в заложники нескольких сотрудников; ситуацию расценивают как рейдерский захват, сообщил спикер генпрокуратуры Украины Андрей Лысенко.

Лысенко сообщил в Facebook, что ситуация в университете «Украина» похожа на «рейдерский захват». В помещение «ворвались люди в форме и закрылись»; сотрудники, которые не успели выйти, остались внутри в качестве заложников. Ректор учебного заведения вызвал полицию.

В данный момент на месте происшествия работают правоохранители.

Спикер добавил, что к людям, «захватившим» университет, приходил человек, у которого полицейские обнаружили «что-то схожее с наркотиками». Мужчина уже задержан.

В свою очередь пресс-служба университета также заявила, что произошел рейдерский захват.

«Не верится, что такой способ присвоения имущества мог так откровенно и вызывающе, в центре Киева, произойти с университетом «Украина», единственным инклюзивно-ориентированным вузом на Украине», – говорится в сообщении.

Директор Центра инклюзивных технологий обучения в университете «Украина» Юлия Ресенчук рассказала в Facebook, что в здание ворвались порядка 50 человек, которые «повалили на пол начальника безопасности, выгнали всех из здания».

Университет «Украина» является негосударственным учебным заведением. Работает с 1998 года.

Напомним, в феврале вооруженные ломами люди захватили санаторий в Одессе, борьбу за который уже несколько лет ведут министерство юстиции Украины и частное акционерное общество «Укрпрофздравница».


          Ukraine wants to have the army of Nazi zombies      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
What consequences will follow the introduction of Nazi and Bandera-style greetings in the Ukrainian army? Why does Ukrainian President Poroshenko want to nazify Ukraine? Petro Poroshenko ordered to draft a bill that would replace army greetings from Soviet-style "Greetings,  comrades!" to Bandera-style "Glory to Ukraine!" and "Glory to heroes!"The bill is to be approved by the Ukrainian parliament, which currently remains in recess. The parliament is to reconvene on September 4. Nevertheless, Ukrainian Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak said that the new greetings would be used during the military parade on Independence Day in Kiev on August 24. This suggests that Ukraine lives under the rule of certain individuals, rather than law. The aforementioned Bandera-style greeting used by Ukrainian nationalists - "Glory to Ukraine!" -originates from "Heil Hitler!"("Glory to Hitler!") and "Sieg Heil!" ("Glory to Victory!") exclamations that Nazi soldiers used during WWII.  The "Glory to Ukraine!" exclamation was officially introduced at the II Congress of the OUN* party in Krakow in April 1941.Of course, Ukrainian trolls try to find other roots for their Nazi greeting, Christian and even pre-Christian ones. Yet, Ukrainian soldiers will subconsciously associate the new army greetings with the "deeds" of Ukrainian SS divisions "Galicia" and "Nachtigall."The crimes of Ukrainian nationalists were legally proved and established at relevant litigations that also established their direct connection with Nazis. People in the whole world are familiar with the photo showing a fascist aiming his gun at a naked woman, who tries to cover her child with her body. The man in the picture, who is executing the woman and her child, wears a uniform of SS soldier, but he is not a German. He is a native of Western Ukraine. He had served in Galicia division, and had taken part in the work of punitive troops since 1943. Poroshenko consistently pursues the policy to nazify Ukraine. The main message of this policy is as follows: it was not the Soviet Army, but the Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian insurgent army (Bandera supporters, UPA*) that liberated Ukraine from Nazism. How do common Ukrainians react to this?Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk said: "If shouting "Glory to Ukraine!" could bring back peace to Ukraine, if it could raise people's salaries and pensions, I would be shouting it 24/7." It appears that the Germans used to have the same feelings when Hitler came to power. We would like to hope that Ukraine does not become a prosperous country owing to a Nazi administration. Here is what another person wrote on Facebook: "If you refuse to say "Glory to heroes" in response to "Glory to Ukraine" or if you do not know how to respond to this exclamation, just pretend that you are deaf, or they'll shoot you, at least in your feet." Needless to say that the international community will not show any reaction to Ukraine's decision to change army greetings from Soviet to Nazi ones. In Germany, however, it is considered criminal to say Nazi greetings. In Poland, Ukrainian Bandera-style exclamation is punishable by imprisonment. Yet, Brussels was OK with the anti-Russian Ukrainian slogan "Moskalyaku na gilyaku!" which literally translates as "Muscovites - on guillotines!" The main principle of the European establishment today is as follows: the worse for Russia, the better. At the same time, Ukraine is striving with its fascist values to Europe. Who knows, maybe it will become a member of the European Union someday. Ukrainian nationalists also use an anti-Jewish slogan - "Yude - get'!" ("Jews out!"), but Mr. Poroshenko enjoys respect in Israel. As for the "stronghold of democracy," the United States, Washington shows strong resistance to the adoption of the anti-Nazi resolution that Russia and tens of other countries promote at the United Nations Organization. Ottawa and Kiev support Washington in this. After the Holocaust, Washington's position on the topic should look wild and unacceptable for Israel, but Israel will never say goodbye to an annual aid of three billion dollars. Psychiatrist and psychologist Alexander Fedorovich said in an interview with Pravda.Ru that Ukraine's key national idea is the idea of nationalism. "It unites a fairly large group of people who are ready for extreme actions. Nationalism in Ukraine promotes ideas of chauvinism, fascism and anti-Semitism," the expert told Pravda.Ru.The first platform, where a national ideology should be realized, is a younger generation (kindergartens and schools). The next platform is the army. "If people have to go to kill other people, they should be ideologically zombified, because they should not think about anything else," Alexander Fedorovich said in an interview with Pravda.Ru.According to the psychologist, Ukraine did not have to reinvent the wheel - the country recreated the experience of Dr. Goebbels by inciting nationalist sentiments and making people believe in the superiority of their country over other nations. "In the army, this greeting, which soldiers repeat throughout the day, becomes visceral. It requires no emotional coloring, and it zombifies people. They stop to reflect on the subject and take it for granted," Alexander Fedorovich said in an interview with Pravda.Ru. *OUN-UPA - terrorist organizations banned in RussiaLyuba LulkoPravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru

US Congress currently considers a new document, the essence of which is to put even more pressure on the Russian Federation. The document, inter alia, highlights the need to find the assets of Russian President Putin and declare Russia an accomplice of international terrorism.The document titled "Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act of 2018" or DASKAA, proposes reducing all existing anti-Russian sanctions to a common denominator. Also, according to the bill, Washington will create a special department to oversee the actions of the United States of America on sanctions against Russia.The senators who supported the bill want the Russian Federation to return the Crimea to Ukraine and refuse to sponsor military operations in the Donbass. Representatives of the US government also urge Moscow to stop supporting separatists of Georgia and Moldova. In addition, US authorities want Russia to stop its participation in military operations in Syria, withdraw from the alliance with pro-government forces of the country and no longer support the regime of Bashar Assad.

          Крошечный электромобиль, который может растянуться, чтобы взять больше пассажиров.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Мы уже видели электрокар с одним сиденьем для водителя. Такой микро размер электромобиля делает его идеальным для маневрирования в перегруженных трафиком дорогах и улицах. Однако, что же делать, если вы хотите перевезти второго пассажира? В случае с новым электрокаром iEV X, автомобиль просто становится длиннее.

В настоящее время в действующей прототипной форме немецкий электрокар iEV X (Intelligent Electric Vehicle) имеет ширину всего 78 см и 160 см в длину в режиме с одним пассажиром. Когда хозяин хочет посадить и подвезти еще кого-то, автомобиль может быть удлинен до 190 см, что позволяет добавить второе сиденье за ​​водителем. Если они хотят взять третьего пассажира (или дополнительный груз), то машинку можно дополнительно удлинить до 220 см.

IEV X в настоящее время является объектом кампании Kickstarter, благодаря которой любой молодой изобретатель может привлечь денежные средства для реализации своего творческого или научного проекта. Портал https://atn.ua/obshchestvo/maks-polyakov-i-noosphere-ventures-podderzhivayut-razrabotki-molodyh-uchenyh-v-ukrainer также поможет узнать, как найти помощь молодым ученым, если они чувствуют в себе силы и потенциал  быть генератором или двигателем прогресса.

Планы разработчиков требуют, чтобы базовая модель общим весом 115 кг была оснащена литий-ионным аккумулятором на 48 вольт, что должно достаточным для поездок на расстоянии до 60 км или просто на 3-х часовую поездку. 40-ваттная солнечная панель на крыше поможет зарядить батарею, пока автомобиль припаркован. Максимальная скорость такого электрокара составляет 45 км / ч.

Модель iEV X + имеет больший вес (145 кг) и должна оснащаться 72-вольтовой батареей большей емкости, мощности которой хватит для поездок на 120 км. Также новая версия авто оснащается солнечной панелью на 60 ватт и развивает максимальную скорость до 60 км / ч. Планы также требуют дополнительной автоматической роботизированной системы зарядки, которая помогает увеличить диапазон батарей.

В зависимости от модели iEV X будет иметь максимальную скорость 45 или 60 км / ч.

Дополнительные функции обеих моделей должны включать в себя водоотталкивающие боковые зеркала, широкоугольную камеру заднего вида, 7-дюймовый сенсорный дисплей, полную светодиодную систему освещения и стальное шасси с алюминиевыми панелями кузова.

В настоящее время электрокар IEV X является объектом кампании Kickstarter. Если он достигнет объема производства, то стоимость одной такой модели будет составлять 1 850 евро (около 2,144 долл. США). Базовая модель iEV X + будет стоить примерно 7 850 евро (9 098 долл. США).

Máy bay huấn luyện của Việt Nam rơi ở huyện Nghĩa Đàn, tỉnh Nghệ An hôm 26/7/2018. Photo Zing.vn

Cả Quân chủng Phòng không - Không quân lẫn Bộ Quốc phòng Việt Nam tiếp tục làm thinh trước tin chiến đấu cơ loại Su-22U, số hiệu 8551, rớt ở huyện Nghĩa Đàn, tỉnh Nghệ An hôm 26 tháng 7 là do “nâng cấp” không đạt yêu cầu kỹ thuật.

Một số nguồn thạo tin tại Việt Nam từng cho biết, dường như chiến đấu cơ số hiệu 8551 nằm trong lô Su-22U cũ mà Việt Nam mua lại từ một số quốc gia ở Đông Âu, sau đó chuyển cho Ukraine “nâng cấp”, chuyển đổi mục đích sử dụng (theo thiết kế Su-22U chỉ thực hiện các nhiệm vụ trên đất liền, “nâng cấp” nhằm thực hiện các nhiệm vụ trên biển) (1). Mới đây, tờ Sputnik của Nga cho biết thêm, các công ty ở Ukraine tham gia “nâng cấp” lô Su-22U - trong đó có chiến đấu cơ số hiệu 8551 - cho Việt Nam đều thuộc loại không đủ năng lực để thực hiện công việc “nâng cấp” (2).

***

Xưa nay, tai nạn liên quan đến hoạt động của không quân trên toàn thế giới vốn không ít, tuy nhiên riêng tại Việt Nam, cách ứng xử với hàng loạt tai nạn xảy ra liên tục đối với đủ loại phương tiện bay quân sự rõ ràng hết sức bất thường.

Dẫu các kế hoạch mua sắm phương tiện – thiết bị quốc phòng, bao gồm cả phương tiện bay quân sự của Việt Nam thường xuyên được hệ thống truyền thông quốc tế bạch hóa ngay từ giai đoạn bàn bạc với đối tác - ví dụ gần nhất là chuyện Việt Nam hỏi mua lô thiết phương tiện – thiết bị quốc phòng trị giá 100 triệu Mỹ kim từ Mỹ (3), song Quân chủng Phòng không - Không quân của Quân đội nhân dân Việt Nam nói riêng và Bộ Quốc phòng Việt Nam nói chung, tiếp tục dùng “bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” làm màn để che mọi thứ, kể cả đậy điệm nguyên nhân thực của hàng loạt tai nạn mà hậu quả về nhân mạng lẫn giá trị tài sản đều thuộc loại “đặc biệt nghiêm trọng”.

Nếu đúng là chiếc Su-22U, số hiệu 8851, rớt ở huyện Nghĩa Đàn, tỉnh Nghệ An hôm 26 tháng 7 là do “nâng cấp” không đạt yêu cầu kỹ thuật thì che đậy yếu tố ấy có khác gì phủi trách nhiệm cho những cá nhân đề ra chủ trương và chôn sâu những sai lầm của kế hoạch mua lại những chiếc Su-22U cũ từ các quốc gia Đông Âu, chuyển chúng qua Ukaine “nâng cấp”? Quan hệ giữa những nhóm ở Việt Nam chuyên thực hiện các thương vụ mua bán – nâng cấp phương tiện – thiết bị quân sự với Đông Âu, Ukraine, Nga dường như rất mật thiết nên không chỉ có lô Su-22U ấy...

Cách nay bốn năm, hồi cuối tháng 6 năm 2014, Hải quan Phần Lan tìm thấy một container bên trong chất đầy thiết bị phóng hỏa tiễn được vận chuyển từ Việt Nam tới Hồng Kông, sau đó được đưa từ Hồng Kông đến Phần Lan… Theo thẩm định của các chuyên gia thuộc Bộ Quốc phòng Phần Lan thì những thiết bị đó là đầu dẫn của Vympel R 73E – một loại hỏa tiễn tầm ngắn thường được gắn trên các chiến đấu cơ Su-27, Su-30 của Nga... Phải đến giữa tháng 7 năm 2014, khi phát giác vừa kể trở thành tin chính của hệ thống truyền thông quốc tế, Phát ngôn viên Bộ Ngoại giao Việt Nam mới xác nhận, container mà Hải quan Phần Lan tạm giữ tại phi trường Helsinki Vantaa là của Việt Nam. Việt Nam gửi các đầu dẫn hỏa tiễn sang Ukraine để “bảo dưỡng”. Chuyện “bảo dưỡng” này là “bình thường”, “đúng luật pháp, thông lệ quốc tế” (4).

Tuy Phát ngôn viên Bộ Ngoại giao Việt Nam khẳng định, các viên chức hữu trách của Việt Nam đang làm việc với các bên có liên quan để giải quyết những vấn đề về thủ tục hải quan khi container vừa kể quá cảnh tại Phần Lan, song hải quan Phần Lan vẫn khẳng định sẽ điều tra thêm ít nhất sáu tháng và có thể sẽ tịch thu các đầu dẫn hỏa tiễn do vi phạm luật pháp của Phần Lan về xuất cảng “vật liệu quốc phòng”. Về nguyên tắc, vận chuyển các “vật liệu quốc phòng” qua lãnh thổ Phần Lan phải được Bộ Quốc phòng Phần Lan cho phép. Container chứa các đầu dẫn hỏa tiễn có xuất xứ từ Việt Nam đã không thông báo và không xin phép Bộ Quốc phòng Phần Lan.

Ai cũng biết đầu dẫn hỏa tiễn là loại hàng hóa không… bình thường. Tại sao lại gửi hàng hóa không… bình thường theo kiểu “bình thường”, không khai báo cho “đúng luật pháp, thông lệ quốc tế” để gặp đủ thứ rắc rối? Việt Nam đã cũng như đang mua nhiều thứ phương tiện – thiết bị quốc phòng của Nga, quan hệ giữa hai bên rất khắng khít, tại sao không gửi các đầu dẫn hỏa tiễn do Nga sản xuất cho Nga “bảo dưỡng” mà lại gửi cho Ukraine? Phía sau những lựa chọn và cách làm khác thường ấy là những gì? Chẳng riêng Bộ Quốc phòng mà ngay cả hệ thống công quyền Việt Nam cũng xếp chuyện này vào loại công chúng Việt Nam không có quyền biết!

Không phải tự nhiên mà tại kỳ họp Quốc hội diễn ra hồi cuối năm 2013, ông Nguyễn Hòa Bình, lúc đó là Viện trưởng Viện Kiểm sát Tối cao, đề nghị Quốc hội kiểm soát việc mua sắm phương tiện – thiết bị phục vụ quốc phòng, an ninh như chiến đấu cơ, chiến hạm, tàu ngầm,… Ông Bình lập luận, dù những thông tin liên quan đến các thương vụ loại đó là “nhạy cảm” nhưng chi phí dùng cho việc mua sắm là tiền của dân thành ra phải kiểm soát để bảo đảm tiền bạc được sử dụng đúng mục đích. Thậm chí Quốc hội Việt Nam nên thành lập một hội đồng thẩm định nhu cầu và những hợp đồng mua sắm phương tiện – thiết bị cho quân đội, công an. Ông Lê Việt Trường, lúc ấy đang giữ vai trò Phó chủ nhiệm Uỷ ban Quốc phòng - An ninh của Quốc hội Việt Nam, cũng nghĩ như vậy. Ông Trường đề nghị phải thực hiện nguyên tắc công khai minh bạch cả trong mua sắm thuộc lĩnh vực quốc phòng, an ninh (5).

Đến giờ, những ý tưởng, đề nghị như đã kể của ông Bình, ông Trường vẫn giống như những tiếng kêu trong hoang mạc! Chẳng phải chỉ có những hợp đồng mua sắm phương tiện – thiết bị phục vụ quốc phòng, an ninh được dán nhãn “bí mật quốc gia” mà nguyên nhân các tai nạn liên quan đến việc bảo dưỡng, sử dụng chúng, dù chẳng giấu được ai cũng được xếp vào loại “an ninh quốc gia”, cần bảo mật. Tại Việt Nam, “minh bạch” vẫn thuộc phạm trù “hiếm, quý” chứ không phải là yếu tố hết sức bình thường như nhiều quốc gia khác. Gần đây, cảm thấy dường như hoạt động của các loại phương tiện bay thuộc quân đội Mỹ không ổn, Military Times – một tập đoàn báo chí tư nhân chuyên xuất bản các ấn phẩm liên quan đến quân đội Mỹ - đã viện dẫn Luật về Quyền Tự do thông tin, yêu cầu Bộ Quốc phòng Mỹ cung cấp toàn bộ thông tin về những trục trặc liên quan tới các phương tiện bay quân sự từ 2011 đến 2018. Tất nhiên là Bộ Quốc phòng Mỹ không thể từ chối và Military Times đã công bố bản kê tất cả các trục trặc liên quan đến phương tiện bay quân sự, bất kể mức độ lớn - nhỏ, nguyên nhân (khách quan hay chủ quan) cho công chúng tham khảo, bình luận (6).

“Bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” đã biến Đinh Ngọc Hệ (tự “Út Trọc”), Phan Văn Anh Vũ (tự Vũ “Nhôm”) trở thành hai ông Trời con, khuynh đảo lực lượng vũ trang, nhân danh quốc phòng, an ninh thâu tóm công thổ, công thự trên toàn quốc biến thành tài sản riêng, chia chác với nhiều cá nhân. “Bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” đã giúp cho hàng chục ông tướng của cả quân đội lẫn công an tự tung, tự tác, được cả ăn lẫn nói. “Bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” giúp Vũ “Nhôm” và Trung tướng Phan Hữu Tuấn, cựu Tổng cục phó Tổng cục Tình báo, Bộ Công an được xử kín và dù tính chất, mức độ phạm tội của cả hai được xác định là “rất nghiêm trọng”, Vũ “nhôm” chỉ bị phạt 9 năm tù, tướng Tuấn chỉ bị phạt 7 năm tù. “Bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” còn giúp “Út Trọc” với những vi phạm mà tính chất, mức độ nghiêm trọng không kém 12 năm tù vì “lợi dụng chức vụ quyền hạn trong khi thi hành công vụ” và “sử dụng tài liệu giả của cơ quan, tổ chức”.

“Bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” giúp Thượng tướng Phương Minh Hòa (cựu Tư lệnh Quân chủng Phòng không – Không quân), Trung tướng Nguyễn Văn Thanh (cựu Chính ủy Quân chủng Phòng không – Không quân) chỉ bị cảnh cáo, Đại tá Bùi Văn Tiệp (cựu Tư lệnh Sư đoàn 367 Không quân) được hưởng án treo vì những sai phạm hết sức chung chung, thiếu chi tiết: Độc đoán, chuyên quyền, vi phạm đủ thứ qui định pháp luật về quản lý – sử dụng công thổ, công thự, không chỉ để mặc mà còn tiếp tay cho một số thuộc cấp “vi phạm pháp luật rất nghiêm trọng”, chưa kể phê duyệt nhiều văn bản trái cả quy định lẫn thẩm quyền. Tướng Hòa, tướng Thanh, đại tá Tiệp đã “hạ cánh an toàn” nhưng nhiều thuộc cấp của họ như: Thượng tá Phạm Giang Nam, Chủ nhiệm Bay Trung đoàn 921, Trung tá Khuất Mạnh Trí, Trung đoàn trưởng, Tham mưu trưởng của Trung đoàn 921,… và những phi công đã tử nạn khi bay huấn luyện thì không.

Liệu những ông tướng chẳng ngại ngần chút nào khi biến hàng loạt phi trường từ Bắc tới Nam thành sân golf, khu dân cư, giúp Út Trọc tác oai, tác quái, có vì quốc gia, dân tộc, đồng chí, đồng đội mà chùn tay trong những thương vụ mua sắm phương tiện – thiết bị quốc phòng? Không biết! “Bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” đủ để che kín tất cả. Dân có thể không biết nhưng hẳn là những đồng đội của Thượng tá Nam, Trung tá Trí,… biết nhiều hơn về “mặt thật” của các ông tướng. Tới lúc nào thì họ thôi, không muốn bán mình cho các “thủ trưởng” của họ nữa? Tới lúc nào thì tinh thần, nhiệt huyết quân nhân suy sụp hoàn toàn vì những “bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” được bảo vệ theo kiểu đó? Tác động từ việc hệ thống công quyền Việt Nam nhân danh “bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia” để lờ đi, gạt bỏ sự hi sinh của những người lính kháng cự sự xâm lược của Trung Quốc cả trên đất liền lẫn trên biển, chống chế độ diệt chủng Polpot ở Campuchia sẽ cộng hưởng thế nào?

Nếu nói “bí mật quốc phòng”, “an ninh quốc gia”, “bảo vệ lợi ích của Đảng”, “bảo vệ uy tín của lực lượng vũ trang” theo kiểu vừa kể đang “đánh” và sẽ đốn qụi tinh thần ái quốc, vì dân - những yếu tố quan trọng nhất, cần thiết nhất cho hiệu quả hoạt động của quân đội, công an thì có quá đáng không? Bị “đánh” hoài như thế thì lúc nào “sạch không kình ngạc”?

Украина ежегодно теряет более 4 млрд евро из-за процветающей на таможне коррупции. Об этом говорится в публикации немецкого издания Süddeutsche Zeitung. 

Указанная сумма – это более 10% всей доходной части госбюджета Украины и в 2 раза больше той суммы, которую власти страны хотят получить от МВФ, ЕС и Всемирного банка в 2018 г., подчеркивает издание. 

Süddeutsche Zeitung, опираясь на документы, таможенные и транспортные накладные, описывает махинации, применяемые в Украине для ухода от пошлин. Ввозимые в страну товары в процессе таможенной регистрации меняют маркировку. 

К примеру, зонтики превращаются в щетки или зеркала – только на одной партии груза государство теряет тысячи евро. По данным издания, к махинациям причастны сотрудники полиции, прокуратуры и СБУ. 

Для нелегальных сделок образуются новые фирмы, которые контролируют люди из окружения сотрудников таможни, прокуратуры и полиции.

          Knights of Columbus pledge support for persecuted Christians      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baltimore, Md., Aug 7, 2018 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl Anderson pledged the fraternal organization’s continued efforts to aid and rebuild persecuted Christian communities in the Middle East, during his Aug. 7 address at the 2018 Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore, Maryland.

Anderson also unveiled a new pilgrim icon, “Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians,” created for the Knights by Italian artist Fabrizio Diomedi. The icon will travel from parish-to-parish across the country to raise awareness, show solidarity, and inspire support for persecuted Christians.

In his opening remarks at the convention, taking place August 7-9, Anderson said that he hopes that this “pilgrim icon program” will “focus the eyes of our Church on the sacrifice of so many of our brothers and sisters in Christ.”

Anderson’s remarks highlighted the pivotal role that the Knights of Columbus have played in supporting Christians in the Middle East, where they have committed more than $20 million since 2014 to provide “food, shelter, and clothing to our neighbors who lost everything in Iraq and Syria because they refused to give up their love of Christ.”

“It is clear that without the support of the Knights of Columbus, Christianity might have died in Iraq,” said Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil, Iraq, in a video shown during Anderson’s speech. The Chaldean archbishop’s community was driven from their historic home in the Nineveh Plains by repeated attacks from the Islamic State starting in 2014.

Vice President Mike Pence also thanked the Knights of Columbus for their support of minorities in the Middle East in a video message shown at the convention. Anderson said that the Knights are working with the vice president to ensure that these minority communnties are included in U.S. and U.N. assistance in Iraq.

“When the conflict between Kurdistan and the Government of Iraq threatened an ancient Christian town that had just been rebuilt, we alerted the State Department and the White House.  We worked with them to help de-escalate tensions and avoid a bloody conflict that could have ended the Christian presence in Iraq,” said Anderson.

The Supreme Knight also thanked Archbishop Jean-Clement Jeanbart of Aleppo, Syria, who was in attendance at the Baltimore convention, for his courageous leadership.

Anderson said that he is challenging the Knights of Columbus to raise $1 million this year to finish a project to provide housing for both Syriac and Chaldean Christian families. The 140-unit apartment building will be called the McGivney House, in honor of Father Michael McGivney, the Connecticut priest who founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882.

Anderson commended the Knights for meeting last year’s challenge of raising $2 million for the rebuilding of the Iraqi town of Karamles, which he said had been “a Christian town for centuries before ISIS overran it, drove out its inhabitants, destroyed their homes, and desecrated their churches.”

One Knights of Columbus council in Nebraska, St. John the Baptist Council 10-305, raised $163,000 for the families of Karamles at a dinner and auction.The funds will be used to rebuild more than 80 homes of Christians in Iraq.

“If we value only self-interest, we will get discord and division. But if we value charity — if we value unity and fraternity — we will build a society where the common good is protected,” said Anderson.

He highlighted the many other charitable initiatives the Knights have funded throughout the world, including providing for 950 ultrasound machines, 7,649 new wheelchairs, 105,000 new coats for children, and a pilgrimage that brought over 200 wounded veterans and military personnel to Lourdes, France. Last year, the Knights also contributed $4.2 million dollars for disaster relief after hurricanes hit Puerto Rico, Texas, and Florida.

The Knights of Columbus’ total charitable contributions last year exceeded  $185 million dollars with its members providing 75.6 million volunteer hours.

Internationally, Anderson also announced that the Knights of Columbus is expanding, with its newest territory in now in South Korea and a new State Council designation for Ukraine. He also noted that the Knights have experienced a considerable growth in membership both in France and the Philippines.

This year, membership totalled 1,967,585 - a new high, according to Anderson.

Addressing attendees in the Baltimore Convention Center, Anderson quoted a speech delivered by Saint Pope John Paul II at the Baltimore Orioles Park at Camden Yards next to the center:

“Catholics of America,” St. John Paul II proclaimed, “Always be guided by the truth — by the truth about God who created and redeemed us, and by the truth about the human person, made in the image and likeness of God.”

          Un unboxing filtrado del Google Pixel 3 XL demuestra que 'notch' te librarás de la ceja en la pantalla      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Notch

Las filtraciones hablando de la futura generación de móviles Pixel llevan tiempo coincidiendo en que Google se sumará a la cada vez más asfixiante tendencia en cuanto a crecimiento de pantallas: el 'notch'. Empezó el Essential Phone con su 'cutout', le siguió Apple y se desencadenó la avalancha. Tanta, que en el Mobile World Congress de Barcelona vimos no pocos teléfonos Android adoptando este diseño de pantalla recortada.

La última filtración del Pixel 3 XL nos habla de nuevo de lo mismo, de que el futuro teléfono de grandes dimensiones de Google estirará su pantalla más allá del aspecto 2:1, y que lo hará además adoptando un 'notch' de considerables dimensiones. El fabricante nos lo anticipó ya con los cambios introducidos en Android, pero el resultado se verá en unos pocos meses.

Poca RAM y mucha ceja

Octubre es el mes en que deberíamos tener a los nuevos Pixel 3 circulando por el mercado. El modelo normal y el modelo XL, que en otros fabricantes bien podría haber adoptado el apellido Plus pero que en la línea Pixel guarda aún más similitudes con su hermano menor. Y tan poco falta para su lanzamiento que poco queda por saber de él.

Este último unboxing filtrado reconfirma, una vez más, que tendremos el Snapdragon 845 al frente de las operaciones, que el teléfono llegará con una memoria, algo corta, de 4GB en su versión básica, y veremos si única, y que llegaremos hasta los 128GB de memoria interna. Sin microSD, recordemos que estamos en la familia Pixel, heredera de los Nexus y de muchas de sus políticas.

En la filtración también aparecen unos auriculares USB C, los que parecen ser los nuevos Pixel Buds a falta de confirmación oficial, y un par de adaptadores extra. Uno para auriculares con jack de 3,5 milímetros y otro para USB A, o microUSB. Parece que en Google no quieren dejar a nadie sin la posibilidad de disfrutar de su Pixel 3 XL y no quieren forzar compras de accesorios ni cargadores.

Pero sin duda, la característica más llamativa es la de su gigantesco 'notch' en la parte superior, uno que por el momento albergará la cámara frontal y veremos si algún otro añadido, y que bien podría haber sido algo más recortado. Confiemos en que su presencia no empobrezca el uso del teléfono en el día.

Комментарий. По-моему, очень понятный намек Киеву. Мол не дадим мы вам денег, потому, что у вас и так все есть. Просто поборите коррупцию. То есть смените режим…, а там поглядим.

Since Oleg is not competing in this European Championship, I can actually sit back and enjoy the gymnastics. I won't be curled up in a ball hyperventilating during the Ukraine high bar rotation. I won't be leaving fingernail marks on my face while watching Oleg compete on pommel horse. Here's to the DUDES! Bring it on. I think Russia will be inspired by the women's performance and pull off a win in Glasgow. However, I expect the British men to win silver. The British men are sturdier than the British women right now. Honest question: How can the British men be so consistent on pommel horse when their women are so tragically inconsistent on beam?
          У Порошенко признали, что Украине нечем расплачиваться по долгам      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

У Киева могут возникнуть проблемы с выплатой долгов Международному валютному фонду уже в следующем году.

Об этом в эфире телеканала «Прямой» заявил депутат Верховной Рады от БПП, представитель правительства в парламенте Украины Вадим Денисенко, передает корреспондент «ПолитНавигатора».

При этом депутат обвинил в этих проблемах предыдущую власть, свергнутую в результате государственного переворота более четырех лет назад.

«Основные долговые обязательства перед МВФ были сделаны с 2004-го по 14-й годы, когда на протяжении десяти лет, когда при власти было две политических силы, было взято 45 миллиардов долларов кредитов у МВФ. Это был период, когда была стабильная экономическая ситуация, более того, были периоды огромного экономического роста. Эти деньги, к сожалению, были проедены, а сейчас мы вынуждены за них расплачиваться”, – сказал политик.

“Можно ли заплатить МВФ без получения новых траншей? На сегодня невозможно… Проблемы могут возникнуть с погашением долгов минувших лет, с 2004-го по 14-й годы, со следующего года. Вот с этим могут быть действительно проблемы», – предупредил Денисенко.

          «Власть разваливает страну»: экс-депутат Рады – Порошенко возглавил ликвидационную комиссию по Украине      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Президент Украины Петр Порошенко пытается подтянуть свою значимость в мире до значимости американского олигарха и главы Белого дома Дональда Трампа. Напомним, что лидер США, конгрессмены и американская элита заявляли, что Россия вмешивается во внутренние дела Америки.

По словам экс-депутата Верховной Рады Владимира Олейника, Порошенко не мог остаться в стороне от подобных разговоров, поэтому он поручил СНБО заняться противодействием вмешательству России в выборы на Украине.

«Но мне видится, что с таким кандидатом на пост президента никакого вмешательства России не нужно. Никаких врагов не нужно имея такую власть. Она разваливает страну на глазах. Такое ощущение, что он возглавляет ликвидационную комиссию по Украине. Конечно, можно любую глупость списать на Россию, но бесконечно все валить на соседа уже не удается», - подчеркнул экс-депутат.

«Власть разваливает страну»: экс-депутат Рады – Порошенко возглавил ликвидационную комиссию по Украине

«Одна британская газета опубликовала рейтинг Порошенко на Украине и назвала цифру – 5%. Я проанализировал, есть ли в Европе страны, где рейтинг главы государства находится на таком же уровне, да еще и он что-то говорит от имени народа. Нет такой страны. Что это за уникальная такая страна, народ которой так ненавидит руководителя, а он от его имени провозглашает какие-то инициативы? И Порошенко нужно как-то объяснить, почему имея такую поддержку в Европе, он так непопулярен в своем государстве? Ведь цифры популярности озвучивали в стране, которая поддерживает его безоговорочно», - написал Владимир Олейник в Facebook.

          На Украине продолжается травля Усика      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Украинский боксер Александр Усик выступал под украинским флагом в Москве лишь для того, чтобы на Украине “не воняли”.

К такому выводу в материале под названием “Усика надо выдвинуть в президенты Украины” приходит журнал “Країна”.

В статье высказывается удивление тем, что от победы Усика в Москве “радостно визжала не только украинская вата, но и вполне патриотически настроенные граждане”, которым понравилось, что боксер выходил на ринг под сине-желтым флагом и под украинский гимн.

При этом автор публикации обращает внимание, что в Москве никогда и не запрещали гопак или украинские песни, а после боя Усика в российской столице бой уже “как-то не получается упрекать тех украинских артистов, которые гастролируют в России”.

Также украинский боксер сравнивается с негром-силачом, в позапрошлом веке выступавшим в составе каждой странствующей цирковой труппы.

“За миску еды он сражался на арене со всеми желающими, увеличивая доходы владельца цирка. Этот, простите, негр, тоже мог бы говорить, что своими победами на ринге доказывает независимость и свободолюбие народов Африки. Но не говорил, потому что все знали, что он борется за пищу. Никто этого не скрывал: вот раб – вот миска.

Не собираюсь здесь ставить риторических вопросов и обращаться к национальному сознанию Александра Усика или его тренеров и менеджеров. Потому что не нужно искать то, чего нет, там, где этого нет. Сине-желтый флаг наш чемпион поднимает исключительно для того, чтобы в Украине “не воняло», как говорил был еще один известный украинский “патриот” певец Иван Дорн после того, как вышел на московскую сцену в майке с трезубцем”, – негодует автор.

“Осталось немного – выдвинуть Александра в президенты Украины, – приходит к выводу журнал. – Почему нет? У нас же кумирами нации являются специалисты по мордобою – извините, профессиональному боксу. Чем Усик хуже братьев Кличко, из которых нам усиленно лепили “спасителей нации”? Такой же грозное выражение лица. Такая же глубина интеллекта. Такая же популярность среди народа. Просто удивительно становится: куда смотрят политтехнологи?”

          Comment on Giving Trump Carte Blanche for War by CitizenOne      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I have long wondered about our Navy and its utter vulnerability. Like ducks in a barrel there are a myriad of weapons systems that have no known defense against and the systems are multiplying at a brisk pace. Russia recently announced its stable of new weapons which could render our Navy incapable. We should have abandoned a fleet based defense as unworkable a long time ago. However the carrier based offensive strategy has been successfully deployed time and time again. Perhaps the reason that nations which have acquired these technologies choose not to use them or perhaps the developer nations have not supplied the technology to nations which we attack with Carrier fleets. Perhaps there is some fear that using these technologically advanced weapons platforms against an American fleet will result in nuclear retaliation if the naval resource is destroyed by obliterating it. But the fact is that these weapons platforms exist and there is no known countermeasure which can defeat them. Torpedoes that can travel at hundreds of miles per hour under water exist. Options include underwater detonations which can crack carrier hulls like eggs. Cruise missiles like the French Exocet can fly under the radar and are virtually undetectable hence unstoppable. Couple that with our recent multiple collisions with fishing trawlers and you have to wonder if we are really prepared to defend ourselves even from incidental mishaps. Apparently we are not. But all of these uncontrollable risks seems to not deter our reliance or continued use of ships to launch attacks. It is logical to assume that sooner or later existing technology will be used to thwart US naval capabilities to launch attacks with devastating effect. What would the US do if a carrier was sunk? Likely it would result, given the complete media control by the MIC, to result in a redo of the sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor. The press would bring the nation to war against some enemy (Russia) even if the true perpetrator was not immediately known. We have recently seen such media based and supported rush to judgements against Syria for the various Sarin gas attacks with the resulting launch of cruise missiles in retaliation. The proposed bill would make such instantaneous actions based on cooked up evidence lawful. Not surprised that the bill was introduced. It is just a legal fig leaf covering the current practice of making up any story and taking immediate actions be they military or political such as economic sanctions based on flimsy or unsupported evidence which is what has been happening in countries like Syria and Ukraine. The proposed law would enshrine and justify such actions in the future as unquestionable and seditious if opposed. It seems a logical next step to codify and justify current practices. On the other hand we should be alarmed that there is a proposed law that would allow current practices to become unquestionable under the law and could silence dissent with incarceration. This proposed law would become just another piece in the puzzle which enables the US to justify any military action based on any accusation or allegation even if untested and unproven against perceived enemies. This is a scary scenario given we are already conducting foreign affairs according to the principle of "Ready-Fire-Aim".
          Rick Gates: What you need to know about the man testifying against PaulManafort       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

During the first week of the Paul Manafort trial, there were two stars: A $15,000 ostrich jacket (produced by prosecutors who claim Manafort deceived the government about his income) and witness Rick Gates, who cut an immunity deal in exchange for testimony against Manafort. Gates made a number of eyebrow-raising statements on the stand, but he might not be the slam-dunk witness the prosecution thought they had.

Who is Rick Gates?

Rick Gates is a former business associate of onetime Trump presidential campaign manager Paul Manafort. Gates and Manafort worked together as consultants for years, including the period in which Manafort was paid $60 million by a Russian oligarch to advance Russia's interests in Ukraine.

Gates served as the deputy chairman of the Donald Trump Inauguration Committee and co-founded the pro-Trump nonprofit group America First Policies.

In October 2017, Gates was indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller and charged with money laundering, making false statements to the FBI and conspiracy against the United States, among other charges. On Feb. 22, 2018, Mueller indicted Gates and Manafort for a rash of additional crimes, including filing false income tax returns and bank fraud. On Feb. 23, Gates pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements and one count of conspiracy against the U.S. in exchange for his cooperation with the Mueller investigation.

What Rick Gates said at the Manafort trial

On the stand this week, Gates said that he and Manafort had committed tax evasion and bank fraud together and that he had embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Manafort. He also said he had engaged in an extramarital affair and that some of the embezzled money funded it.

On cross-examination, Manafort's attorney called Gates's credibility into question, claiming he had actually embezzled millions from Manafort and causing him to admit he had actually had a second extramarital affair he hadn't told the government about.

Analysts were split about Gates's effectiveness as a witness for the prosecution. Some thought Gates did well; others said jurors seemed displeased with Gates during the cross-examination and that he might be a liability for the government's case (which is nevertheless backed up by extensive financial documents).

          My audience      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
My audience always surprises me even if it is bots as some people have said. In the past couple of hours I have had over 400 hits by people living in Russia. It certainly isn't my political views that they are looking at as I rarely publish political posts. It is H11 haplogroup. It shows just how small the world really is. My ancient maternal line finds its resting spot in Ayrshire/Argyllshire Scotland and probably has been there for 8000 years or more but H11 is one of those smaller H haplogroups that has resting spots in specific areas of the world. Likely H11 wintered in the Ice Refuge known as Ukraina and located in the Ossettia/Georgia/Ukraine area from 15 to 20 thousand years ago. From there H11 went mostly westward with some making the great trek through the Scandinavian Peninsula and then across to Scotland and Ireland. Another migration crossed through Poland into Germany, the Netherlands, France and into southern England and perhaps also to Ireland. Another arm of migration went southward into Hungary moving towards Greece and can also be found in Spain. The Spanish arm may have also come south from France. But our numbers are small; about 1.5% of H haplogroup but that still numbers in the millions! My H11 project at FT DNA includes quite a few people who live in Russia. I publish an H11 Newsletter quarterly and the latest was just published on the FT DNA website as well as my blog.

While these aren't the first leaked photos of the device, they're the first to feature the device running Android and in its packaging.

Pixel customers might finally get headphones in the box. The packaging shows a pair of wired Pixel Buds with a USB-C connector. These would be the first wired version of Google's wireless Pixel Buds that launched alongside the Pixel 2. From the photos, it appears that the wired variants will wrap inside the ear canal to keep them in place. Read more...

          Kommentar zu Debatte um allgemeine Dienstpflicht: Sollen Schulabgänger ein Jahr dem Land dienen? von Alreech      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Ein Pflichtdienst ist nach bisheriger Rechtsprechung nur zur Gefahrenabwehr zulässig, also z.B. als Wehrdienst oder bei einer Feuerwehr wenn sich nicht genügend Freiwillige dafür finden. Bei der Feuerwehr gibt es keine Wehrgerechtigkeit, genommen wird derjenige welcher tauglich ist. Eine allgemeine Dienstpflicht kann dann nur über den Ersatzdienst zur Wehrpflicht erreicht werden, dabei sollte man bereits bestehendes Engament in Feuerwehr, DRK, THW oder anderen Organisationen als Ersatzdienst werten. Man könnte auch staatsbürgerliche Rechte wie das aktive und passive Wahlrecht an einen abgeleisteten Wehr oder Ersatzdienst binden. So eine Regelung hat sich im ehemaligen Stadtbürgertum über jahrhunderte bewährt. Militärisch macht der Wehrdienst zur Landesverteidigung auch Sinn - dazu muß man nur nach Afghanistan oder in die Ostukraine schauen, wo viele tapfere Soldaten mit minimaler Ausbildung hochgerüstete westliche Streitkräfte seit Jahren binden. Die größte Gefahr die Deutschland allerdings droht liegt im Inland: schon bald könnten in den östlichen Bundesländer wie Sachsen und Bayern Regierungen mit AfD Beteiligung entstehen, der erste Schritt zum vierten Reich. Bundesrat und Bundesregierung könnten dagegen mit dem Mittel des Bundeszwanges vorgehen, also diese Länder unter Verwaltung eines Bundeskommisars stellen und die Landtage auflösen bis demokratische Neuwahlen erfolgt sind. Um diesen Bundeszwang durchzusetzen kann der Bund auch die Bundeswehr verwenden, wobei die Loyalität der Truppe zweifelhaft ist wenn viele Berufssoldaten aus Dunkeldeutschland kommen. Bei Wehrpflichtigen aus Berlin oder Hamburg besteht wenig Gefahr das sie Befehle verweigern die nötig sind um eine drohende faschistische Machtergreifung zu verhindern. Gesellschaftlich wäre der Wehr- und Ersatzdienst ebenfalls vorteilhaft. Bedingt durch die neoliberale Politik der letzen Jahre sind die Jungen Menschen immer mehr verweichlicht. Viele sind so verwirrt das sie nichteinmal wissen ob sie männlich oder weiblich sind, oder so zart besaitet das sie ein spanisches Gedicht das sie nicht einmal verstehen traumatisiert wenn es an einer Hauswand steht. Nach 3 Monaten Grundausbildung mit gemeinsamen Duschen und marschieren sollte die Jungen Leute davon kurriert sein.

          “We can’t let up”: theatre producer Anna Palenchuk on hunger-striking director Oleg Sentsov      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov is on hunger strike in a prison in Russia’s Far North, but he’s still working on projects. RU

Anna Palenchuk. Photo from personal archive.Oleg Sentsov is a Ukrainian filmmaker and writer, a native of Crimea, best known for his 2011 documentary film Gamer. After Russia’s annexation of Crimea, he was arrested, tortured and prosecuted for terrorism offences. According to FSB investigators, Sentsov reportedly planned to set a United Russia office on fire and blow up a local Lenin monument. The investigation and trial was based on testimony received under torture and was later retracted. In 2015, he was sentenced to 20 years in jail by a Russian court.

On 14 May, Sentsov began a hunger strike in support of releasing all Ukrainian political prisoners. I speak to producer Anna Palenchuk about her production of Oleg Sentsov’s dystopian play “Numbers”.

How did you come to start work on your film and stage production of Sentsov’s play “Numbers”?

I’m in constant contact with Oleg through his lawyers, I support his family and I’ve published two of his books: “Buy This Book, It Is Funny” and “Stories”. I’ve been involved in his case since his arrest, and have tried to keep his name constantly in the news. He asked me to stage “Numbers”. That’s how it all started.

When did he ask you to do this?

Two years ago I learned from his sister that he had said “Palenchuk should do a production of the play”, but at the time it was too much for me to get my head round. But the Russian documentary theatre Teatr.doc and other theatres were doing readings of the play, and recently a Russian human rights campaigner told me that Oleg was upset that they were just readings and not an actual production. He wanted “Numbers” to be staged in a conventional theatre, to become part of the standard repertoire – it’s a very important work for him.

The photo was provided by the producer Natalya Josef.I got hold of a copy of the play in 2015, before we published his stories. But since it wasn’t a published edition, it just lay on a shelf. However, after I realised that Putin wasn’t going to release him before the March 2018 presidential election – I had always hoped that he would be amnestied – I decided that I would stage it.

I wrote to Oleg to tell him about this, and he gave me free rein with directing the production. But then I realised that he needed to be drawn into the process. Nobody knows what he is thinking about in prison, but if he were involved it would be something to keep him busy.

How did Oleg react to the idea of getting involved in the production process?

I had a response to my letter from him on 14 May, the very day he began his hunger strike (the letter was dated 12 May). In it, he described the stage set and costumes he wanted. He set out his ideas very clearly and I was really discouraged by the letter: on the one hand, he was announcing his hunger strike; on the other, it was formal work correspondence.

“His body is the only weapon that he has left”

I realised at that moment that Oleg wasn’t planning on taking his own life. The hunger strike had nothing to do with him being bored with being behind bars. His body is the only weapon that he has left. He has the right to do what he felt is necessary with it. I didn’t try to dissuade him, because I respect his opinion. Oleg has taken that decision, and I know that Oleg Sentsov can be dissuaded from anything.

There’s going to be a film as well as a stage production?

Back before Oleg started his hunger strike, I wrote to tell him that I was going to do a production of his play. I knew I couldn’t stage it on my own, so I set a time scale for doing it and found people to take part. My ambition is to create the most important cultural project of 2018. And since Oleg’s name is already in the news, it's audience will be a lot bigger than can fit into an auditorium. So I realised that we had to find a way of doing it that would reach the largest possible audience, and started to talk to Oleg about that.

We came to the joint conclusion that we needed to shoot a film in the style of Lars von Trier’s 2003 film “Dogville”, containing elements of both stage and screen. It wouldn’t be pure cinema, but both Oleg and I, as producers, find it easier to think in cinematic terms. As he wrote to me: “You do what you like with the theatrical side of things, but I’ll look after the screen version.” Despite his hunger strike, Oleg sends me very clear, succinct messages.

Tell us about your correspondence with Sentsov. How do you shoot a film and stage a play with a director who is in charge of the production, but isn’t physically present because he’s in prison?

If I was working with other colleagues, it might not have been realistic. In the history of world cinema, there has never been a film directed by someone sitting in a prison cell. But we live in times when we need to be pioneers in a lot of things. It’s very difficult, but not impossible.

A reading of the play “Numbers” in the Center for Contemporary Art "Dah", Kyiv, 2015. Photo: Katerina Gornostay. The photo was provided by the producer Natalya Josef.The main thing is to get people who are creatively and mentally close to Oleg involved in the process. We’re choosing an artistic director who he has worked with him before, and our camera operator is also super-professional. There’s a great saying, that “in cinema, every small detail matters”. And with cinema, you’re never working on your own: it’s always a team effort. Oleg must be released, and he wants to direct his film when that happens.

And in any case, our format lies somewhere between theatre and cinema: we need to confirm the stage set and costumes with Oleg, and only he can fine-tune the script. There’s a lot he can do remotely, and we can use his work as we move into pre-production and the shoot.

How are you selecting your actors?

Oleg tells me who he can see as which character. We can’t, unfortunately play him videos of potential cast members, but we take photos and show them to him. He has suggested a lot of people himself, including Viktor Andrienko, Rima Zyubina and Natalya Vasko.

The photo was provided by the producer Natalya Josef.When we make suggestions to actors about taking part in Oleg’s story, they all say “yes”, but Oleg is giving me clear instructions about not using people who will empathise with him over his hunger strike. He tells me that I need to cast people who just like the material – that’s the most important thing.

Rima Zyubina is one of the people who doesn’t only empathise, but acts as well.

She also likes the material and has taken part in readings: she knows the play well. We also have Yevgeny Chernikov, an actor friend of Oleg’s from Simferopol, on board. We need to hold some more auditions, in any case. We have now also acquired Darius Jabłoński, head of the Polish Cinema Academy, as co-producer. Darius was involved in making “The Trial”, director Askold Kurov’s film about Oleg. Kurov is making enormous efforts to have Sentsov released. I spoke to him about it at the Cannes Festival in May and we’re going to do the post-production of our film in Poland.

Is the Ukrainian state doing anything to help?

We’ve just shown the scenario to the Ministry of Culture, as Ukraine has funds officially allocated for making patriotic films. But not all the experts accept our work as patriotic.

When do you start shooting?

We’re planning to shoot in November-December. A lot depends now on the availability of state funding.

Will the film be launched in Ukraine?

We’re hoping for worldwide distribution. Everyone empathises closely with Oleg and it’s important to have his work shown. For the international cinema world, it would seem ludicrous for a director to be overseeing a production from a prison cell. But the film and stage director Kirill Serebrennikov has been working on a film despite being under house arrest since August 2017 and the Iranian director Jafar Panahi continued to make films while under house arrest for several years. But Sentsov’s story should show the world his inner strength and how he is changing views of our country.

His actions reveal his spiritual resilience. I thought that no one could survive such a long hunger strike, but evidently it is possible. His example is a sign that we can all do much more than we imagine. I keep thanking Oleg for showing me that: a year ago I never thought I would be able to work on a play and film simultaneously.

Does your work on Oleg’s film help you not give up?

I’m amazed at how I keep growing stronger and stronger. I can’t accept the fact that he is in prison. I’m so happy that the people who were involved at the start are still on board. We mustn’t ever relax. I don’t know if anyone can have any influence on Putin, but if we give up, we’ll lose this war. And we can’t lose it – the life of the impossibly talented director Oleg Sentsov is at stake.

Funding Required: $25.41B
Funding Received: $9.39B
Unmet Requirements: $16.02B
Coverage: 37.0%

People in need: 134.0M
People to receive aid: 95.8M
Countries affected: 41

As of the end of July 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require US$25.41 billion to assist 95.8 billion people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The 21 HRPs and the Syria 3RP were funded at $9.52 billion: 37 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. Humanitarian organisations still require $16.02 billion to meet the needs covered by these plans.

Requirements are $2 billion higher than last year at the same time. Overall coverage is also slightly higher (three per cent), with $1.4 billion more received this year than last.

Pooled funds

Between 1 January and 31 July 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $333 million through the Central Emergency Response Fund, including $233 million through the rapid response window and $100 million through the underfunded emergencies window. In July, $24 million was approved in rapid response grants to respond to displacement in Ethiopia, population movement from Venezuela into Colombia, worsening food insecurity in Niger, and a volcanic eruption in Guatemala. The largest allocation was $15 million to provide relief items, safe water, sanitation facilities, and health and nutrition treatment to 800,000 people displaced by inter-communal violence in Gedeo and West Guji in Ethiopia.

Between 1 January and 6 August 2018, 17 country-based pooled funds (CBPF) received $536 million in contributions from 30 donors (including $80 million in pledges). During this period, $369 million were allocated to a total of 663 humanitarian projects, implemented by 443 partners, with the funds in Yemen ($92 million), DRC ($36 million) and Iraq ($34 million) allocating the largest amounts. During July, the funds in Afghanistan, Jordan, Nigeria, South Sudan and Turkey were processing allocations. As for overall CBPF allocations, 58 per cent were disbursed to NGOs, including 19 per cent ($71 million) directly to national and local NGOs. Another 41 per cent ($150 million) was allocated to UN agencies and 1 per cent of funding was allocated to Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations.

Country updates

Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Some 22.2 million people – about 75 per cent of the population – require humanitarian assistance or protection. This includes 8.4 million people who do not know where their next meal is coming from. An unprecedented outbreak of cholera and acute watery diarrhoea has resulted in more than 1.1 million cases since April 2017. Escalating conflict in Hudaydah has displaced more than 350,000 people since 1 June. More than 90 per cent of these people have received emergency relief packages distributed by humanitarian partners. Sustained hostilities in Hudaydah city, interruptions to port operations or a siege would be catastrophic and must be avoided. Humanitarian programmes have expanded significantly across Yemen. In June, partners provided emergency food assistance to 7.5 million people – an increase of 200,000 people since January. Similar increases have occurred in other sectors. As of mid-year, about 60 per cent of people targeted with assistance had been reached. Generous and flexible funding has been key. Donors have provided more than 60 per cent of the HRP’s $3 billion requirements – including an early, unearmarked $930 million contribution from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Partners recently sequenced the HRP to show first-line, second-line and full response activities, and require full funding to deliver all programmes based on this plan.

Needs remain high in Ethiopia with 7.88 million people food insecure, as per the Humanitarian and Disaster Resilience Plan (HDRP) released in March. There has been a major surge in displacement since the beginning of June around Gedeo (SNNPR) and West Guji (Oromia) zones resulting in the release of a response plan which seeks $117.7m to assist the 818,250 recently displaced people. Some funding has already been mobilized by Government and partners, primarily through reallocating resources that were originally intended for important response elsewhere in the country under the HDRP.

Fighting in south-west Syria continued to impact hundreds of thousands of civilians, with 180,000 people remaining newly displaced as of the end of July. Aerial bombardment and artillery shelling resulted in civilian deaths and destruction of civilian infrastructure in many areas. Humanitarian workers and service providers were caught up in the violence, with many displaced alongside other civilians. Humanitarian response continued in Dar’a governorate, building on cross-border prepositioning and subsequently drawing on programming from inside Syria. However more than 100,000 newly displaced people remained largely cut off from sustained assistance in Quneitra governorate. Partners identified priority requirements of $85 million to cover the most urgent protection and assistance needs of 300,000 people across the south-west up until mid-October. Concerns also persist around the threat of further military escalation in the north-west of the country, where the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance in Aleppo and Idleb governorates had increased by close to 600,000 by mid-year, to a total of 4.2 million, of whom half were in acute need. Response across the north-west continues to depend on cross-border assistance delivered from Turkey.

At least 3.4 million people in Cameroon need humanitarian assistance and protection. Six out of ten regions are affected by humanitarian crises related to Boko Haram in the Far North, the conflict in the Central African Republic and the worsening situation in the Anglophone regions. Further, growing levels of food insecurity and malnutrition are affecting over 2.6 million people, including 1.5 million children, and there is an ongoing cholera outbreak in the Center and North regions. The 2018 HRP calls for $319.7 million but is only 23 per cent funded. Additional donor support is critical to ensure life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable populations, especially the newly displaced persons in the Far North and the South-West.

Although the number of IDPs in the Central African Republic (CAR) fell to 608,000 during June, a seven per cent decrease compared to May, this does not indicate an improvement of the situation. The tensions and armed violence that erupted in April continue, and are causing new displacements in areas with very limited access. More than half (354,017) of the IDPs are staying with host families, while some 249,522 are in IDP sites and settlements, and another 4,489 are scattered in the bush, in desperate need of assistance. Increasing insecurity is affecting the delivery of aid, as five humanitarian workers have been killed since the beginning of 2018, making CAR one of the most dangerous countries in the world for the delivery of humanitarian aid. Moreover, underfunding remains one of the biggest impediments to stepping up the humanitarian response. At mid-year, the 2018 HRP had only received 26 per cent of its $515.6 million requirement. Without additional funding, humanitarian actors will be unable to address the needs of 1.9 million people targeted in the Plan.

The Marawi Conflict Response and Resources Overview (Mindanao, Philippines) seeks $61 million to provide essential services, food security, protection, livelihood and early recovery support for 199,000 conflict-affected people in Mindanao, of whom 69,412 are still displaced, from July 2017 to December 2018. While an organized return is underway, the majority of those who were forced to flee during the conflict will continue to require humanitarian assistance until sustainable recovery activities are underway, especially for those from the most affected areas of the city. Some $11 million (18%) has been received to-date.

Afghanistan is in the midst of a drought, the scale of which has not been seen since 2011. It has already resulted in some 84,000 people being displaced to Hirat City in western Afghanistan, with up to 150,000 at risk of being displaced. In 2017, wheat production was at an all-time low (57 per cent under the five-year average) and the expected shortfall in production in 2018 is decreasing further -- from 4.2 million metric tonnes to 3.5 million metric tonnes. This decrease is impacting some two million already food insecure people across two thirds of Afghanistan. The ongoing drought led the Humanitarian Country Team to increase the Afghanistan 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan requirements by $117 million, for a total of $547 million. The HRP is currently only 29 per cent funded. Additional funding is required to provide food security, agriculture, water, sanitation, hygiene and nutritional support. The humanitarian community is currently conducting a multi-sectoral humanitarian-development assessment, led by OCHA and UNDP, to examine both humanitarian needs and the wider, long-term complexities underpinning the drought crisis, that would need structural support through development programming.

Four years of conflict have put a tremendous strain on the civilian population in eastern Ukraine. Disrupted access to critical facilities and diminished livelihoods mean that some 3.4 million people are without basic supplies and services and need assistance for protection and survival. Some 200,000 people live under constant fear of shelling every day. One and a half million Ukrainians have been displaced across the country and cannot return home due to hostilities or lost livelihoods. Over 1 million civilians cross the “contact line” every month through operational checkpoints, which lack required shade, cooling spaces and healthcare facilities. Under these conditions, coupled with prolonged waiting hours and summer heat, civilians—many of them elderly—suffer health-related complications. Funding for the Humanitarian Response Plan is urgently needed, as only 27 per cent of the required $187 million has been received so far to respond to the urgent needs of 2.3 million vulnerable Ukrainians with assistance and protection throughout 2018.

Haiti is well into the hurricane season and increased international support for emergency preparedness efforts is required. Haitians are still recovering from consecutive natural disasters, including a major earthquake, hurricanes, floods and drought, and need sustained support. This support is not only to obtain life’s basic necessities, but also to move beyond recurring disasters and build sustainable livelihoods and live in resilient communities that are prepared for future shocks. Humanitarian actors aim to provide humanitarian assistance and protection services to the 2.2 million most vulnerable Haitians, but they have received only 9 per cent of the required $252 million this year.

          Women are learning to ride motorcycles in Saudia Arabia.... I did NOT see that coming!       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In a bit more than a month since women in Saudi Arabia won the historic right to drive, a group of them is headed out on the road on not four wheels, but two.

“We have been waiting a lifetime for this,” said Aliya, an enthusiastic 23-year-old student from Jeddah who is set on motorcycling. “Always watching my brothers ride. Now they’re teaching me.”

The ‘Ladies of Harley’ Riyadh chapter opened with eight founding female members

Saudi women are slowly amassing those needed motorcycle skills through weekly gatherings at the Bikers Skills Institute. Set inside a racetrack on the periphery of the capital city center, and under the instruction of an experienced rider originally from the Ukraine, an all-female riding class convenes on Wednesday nights.

The lifting of the female driving prohibition, announced in September last year and implemented on June 24, is part of a sweeping litany of reforms by the ambitious young Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salam, designed to bring the genders closer to equality - and squash the nation’s undercurrent of religious extremism.

Women remain bound by guardianship laws requiring male permission to obtain a license. And the standard dress code of a long flowing abaya is both impractical and inherently dangerous for motorcycle riding.

          Head of parliamentary Defense Committee: Germany treats Ukrainian soldiers but can't tell if they served in Nazi-linked battalions      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Germany treated more than 100 soldiers from Ukraine since 2014 but doesn't know if they served in the army or in neo-Nazi-linked paramilitaries. Some were filmed doing Nazi salutes on stretchers and sporting far-right logos. The federal government "doesn't have information" on whether the treated Ukrainians were part of the Ukrainian army or paramilitary groups linked to neo-Nazi and far-right fighters, such as the notorious Azov Battalion, head of the parliamentary Defense Committee Wolfgang Hellmich wrote, responding to an inquiry by Alexander Neu from the Left Party. Hellmich's letter, obtained by RT Deutsch, details that 112 Ukrainian fighters were airlifted and treated in Germany since the conflict in eastern Ukraine began in 2014. It also confirms that all transportation and medical costs were covered by the German side.

Nikolay Miroshnichenko was born with a severe genetic disease, doctors predicted complete paralysis. Today, this teenager, who was considered unteachable, is a prize-winner of international musical competitions. To develop motor skills Nicolas' father decided to teach him music. He was then seven years old. HIs fingers practically did not move, only the index fingers on both hands remained movable. At first he taught his son to press his hands on the keys. Over time, the fingers began to move a little, but still not enough to play the piano. He needed to use new motions to create new neural connections in his brain. Slowly after enormous persistence he began to play. Regular schools refused to take him, and a teacher in one of the musical schools said: You should study in Donestk, not here. -- Why his father asked? Because there they have mines 1 1/2 kilometers deep. No one will hear him play.-- Although he received no formal schooling, his father still managed to enter him in a piano competition. After the joint performance, the conductor said: "This is an exceptional child, God saved him".

KIEV, Ukraine -- England ground out a 0-0 draw against Ukraine on Tuesday to take a one-point lead in its 2014 World Cup qualifying group. Manuel Neuer Jersey . Both sides showed tenacity and quick tempo play in a match watched by a crowd of 70,000 where the chances came from set pieces in a balanced first half, while Ukraine increased the pressure in the second. But England will return home from Kyivs Olympic Stadium with a sense of satisfaction after taking 16 points from eight games in Group H. Second-place Ukraine and Montenegro have 15 ahead of the last two rounds of matches -- which England will play at home against Montenegro and Poland respectively. Ukraine carved out a chance in the 53rd minute with a dangerous cross from Andriy Yarmolenko, while Yevhen Konoplyanka flashed a free kick wide in the 71st. Three minutes later, Artem Fedetsky headed a cross straight at England goalkeeper Joe Hart. Englands best chance came in the 82nd when Theo Walcott failed to make the most of a pass from Kyle Walker. England coach Roy Hogdson predictably started with Rickie Lambert up front, while Ukraine coach Mykhailo Fomenko reshuffled his lineup by starting Oleksandr Kucher in place of mainstay defender Yaroslav Rakitsky, and putting Roman Zozulya in the sole attacking position. "We played with a team that belongs in Europe. Its a strong team, they tried, we defended, we tried, they defended," Fomenko said. "England is a strong team who has many players playing in the Champions League, it was a tough fixture." England next hosts Montenegro on Oct. 11, while Ukraine will play Poland the same day.

От редакции: в рубрике DOU Books участники сообщества рассказывают о пяти любимых книгах — тех, которые меняют мировоззрение и могут быть полезны читателям-коллегам.

[Наталья Ренская — Program Manager в Luxoft Ukraine. Более 13 лет в IT в финансовой и нефтегазовой отраслях. Занимается менторством PM, помогает подросткам с выбором профессий в IТ, увлекается фотосъемкой]

Знания быстро устаревают. Прошлый опыт может не пригодиться. Кто умеет действовать нестандартно и гибко в зависимости от обстоятельств, достигая результата в любых условиях, тот является руководителем проекта высочайшей квалификации.

Алексей Головин, «Искусство ведения проектов»

Я часто получаю вопросы в стиле «что ты можешь посоветовать почитать?». Стандартные рекомендации про «Deadline» Tom De Marko, и «Good to Great» Jim Collins не подходят. Эти книги известны многим и были собраны в одну статью. Тех, кто имеет за плечами немалый опыт и жаждет знаний, больше интересуют книжные новинки о развитии и движении дальше.

Для меня было непросто выбрать только 5 книг для материала, но в этот список я внесла те, которые помогут расширить границы и выйти за стандартные для вас рамки.

Paul Foreman «Stop Thinking. How to reduce your thinking to help create quality ideas»

Пусть вас не смущает оформление обложки и самой книги. Здесь прежде всего — контент. Основной девиз произведения уже читается в названии: «Прекратите думать — начните рисовать!». В «Stop Thinking» показано, как визуализировать то, что находится в голове. Здесь очень много mind maps и рисунков, которые позволяют брейнштормить и находить новые идеи и решения. Хорошо описано, как использовать рисунки, чтобы наглядно показать существующие процессы или проблемы. Книга полезна в расстановке всех «тараканов в голове» по полочкам и учит, как можно выносить причину конфликта на бумагу.

В моей практике получилось избежать немало конфликтов, когда проблема переносилась из устного диалога в рисунок. Тогда двоим людям намного проще договариваться и находить совместное решение.

Alan Cooper «The Inmates Are Running the Asylum: Why High Tech Products Drive Us Crazy and How to Restore the Sanity»

В русском переводе — Алан Купер «Психбольница в руках пациентов. Алан Купер об интерфейсах»

Когда у вас есть новая задача на разработку, уверена, что в голове всплывают слова architecture, design, interface и usability. Происходит так или нет, книга «The Inmates Are Running the Asylum» может подтвердить ваши знания в этом направлении или стать открытием.

Для того, чтобы сделать что-то качественно, нужно четко понимать, для кого мы это «что-то» делаем, какой цели пытаемся достичь и какие задачи хотим решить. Другими словами, какие сценарии действий мы изначально закладываем. От этого будет зависеть, как должен выглядеть наш продукт и что пользователи могут сделать с ним, насколько он будет удобен. Не менее важно продумать, как части продукта взаимодействуют между собой и как он будет интегрироваться с другими сервисами.

Книга помогает поставить правильные вопросы во время работы. Например, ваша команда может написать идеальный код, ваш продукт будет оценен маркетологами как самый перспективный на рынке. Но если нет четкого понимания, для кого вы его делаете и какие цели преследуете, то высок риск, что продуктом просто не будут пользоваться. Можете ли вы в этом случае сказать, что сделали продукт или выполнили проект хорошо?

Simon Sinek «The Infinite Game»

Саймон Синек — автор книг «Start with Why», «Leaders Eat Last» и «Together Is Better». Мне нравятся все его книги, я постоянно смотрю выступления автора на TED. В этом году вышла книга «The Infinite Game», которая вдохновила меня на поиски новых подходов в отношениях с клиентом. Если вы читали «Customers For Life» Карла Севелла, обязательно прочитайте и эту. Книга Саймона является удачным продолжением саги о выстраивании правильных отношений, рассчитанных на долгосрочную перспективу.

Светлана Иванова «Развитие потенциала сотрудников. Профессиональные компетенции, лидерство, коммуникации»

Если говорить о долгосрочных отношениях, нельзя останавливаться только на отношениях с клиентом. Не менее важной частью нашего бизнеса является команда. Моя настольная книга, в которой есть много практических советов и идей для размышлений, — «Развитие потенциала сотрудника» Светланы Ивановой. В ней очень много практики по воспитанию лидеров внутри компании, много о Talent Management, о коучинге и наставничестве, личностном росте и корпоративной культуре. Именно поэтому ее нельзя прочитать один раз и за раз применить все описанные методы и подходы. К ней постоянно возвращаешься за советом или подсказкой для каждой отдельной ситуации.

Larry Bossidy «Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done»

В русском переводе — Ларри Боссиди «Исполнение. Система достижения целей»

Последняя книга в списке — как десерт после ужина. Она о том, что execution — это дисциплина, которая должна быть частью культуры компании. Развитие бизнеса и проекта происходят только в том случае, когда сердце и душа лидера отданы компании или проекту. Как понять окружающих людей и правильно ставить им задачи? Как настроить этот культурный фреймворк и добиться выполнения задач? В этой книге собрано много правильных вопросов и практических советов. Кроме темы команды, здесь достаточно материала о стратегии, идеях, планах, о путях достижения целей компании благодаря правильной работе с людьми.

Получайте удовольствие от чтения!


          Paul Manafort and Feinstein's China Spy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

By Daniel John Sobieski

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/08/paul_manafort_and_feinsteins_china_spy.html

August 8, 2018

Political Cartoons by Steve Breen

Paul Manafort stands trial in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's dock for a tax evasion case that the Department of Justice in 2005 decided there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute for no other reason than he later worked for Donald Trump.  Perhaps now he wishes he had been the office manager for California senator Dianne Feinstein (D), who hired a Chinese spy to be her driver and office manager, for there seems to be a double standard here when it comes to working with agents for a foreign power.

There is no evidence or even a suggestion that Feinstein was colluding with the Chinese, just as there is no evidence that President Trump or Paul Manafort, during his short stint as Trump's campaign manager, colluded with Russia.  Yet Manafort is being persecuted...er, prosecuted for a minor crime while the Chinese spy, Russell Lowe, was allowed to pack his box and leave.  No criminal prosecution and no special counsel to see where this thread might unravel.  Again, the difference is that Manafort worked for Trump, and Lowe worked for Feinstein – ironically, one of the leaders in the Russian collusion witch hunt.

Imagine if this were Donald Trump's personal driver being groomed by Beijing's security service to spy on his boss and pass information to the local Chinese consulate and handlers when traveling abroad.  Faster than you can say "Carter Page," a special counsel would be appointed to nail the president for treasonous collusion.

In these cases, the FBI normally gives the organization or office in question what is called a "defensive briefing" – an alert that an individual is up to no good or suspected of doing something sneaky.  The office or organization can then take action.  This was done in Feinstein's case, but not for Trump.

In an editorial, the Wall Street Journal noted the mind-boggling double standard employed by the FBI in dealing with spies and suspected spies in the employ of Feinstein and Trump:

Foreign countries are always trying to steal U.S. secrets, and they sometimes succeed.  In this case Mrs. Feinstein tweeted over the weekend that the FBI approached her five years ago with concerns about an "administrative" staffer in her San Francisco office with "no access to sensitive information."  She said she "learned the facts and made sure the employee left my office immediately."

This is what the FBI should do, and the question Mr. Trump should ask is why the bureau didn't treat him as a potential President with the same customary courtesy.  The FBI claims it had concerns beginning in spring 2016 that low-level Trump campaign staffers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos were colluding with Russians.  Yet rather than give the Trump campaign the usual defensive briefing, the FBI launched an unprecedented counterintelligence investigation into a presidential campaign, running informants against it and obtaining surveillance warrants.  The country is still enduring the polarizing fallout from that decision through special counsel Robert Mueller's probe[.] ...

Mrs. Feinstein is also doing nobody a favor by downplaying this breach.  She claims the driver never had access to "sensitive" information, but the infiltration of the staff of a Senator who serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee is no small matter.  Who knows what the spying staffer was able to hear and report to China over the years?

The FBI of Andrew McCabe, James Comey, and Peter Strzok did not extend the Trump campaign the same courtesy because its leaders wanted to unseat a president they despised and had no such animus against a liberal Democratic senator.


Manafort's financial dealings with Ukraine are the centerpiece of a criminal trial, but no one seems curious about the remarkable financial success Feinstein and her third husband, Richard Blum, had in dealings with China with a Chinese spy on her payroll who arrived on the scene in 1993, one year after Feinstein was elected to the Senate.  As the Los Angeles Times has reported:

On Capitol Hill, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has emerged as one of the staunchest proponents of closer U.S. relations with China, fighting for permanent most-favored-nation trading status for Beijing.

At the same time, far from the spotlight, Feinstein's husband, Richard C. Blum, has expanded his private business interests in China – to the point that his firm is now a prominent investor inside the communist nation[.] ...

In 1992, when Feinstein entered the Senate, Blum's interests in China amounted to one project worth less than $500,000, according to her financial disclosure reports.  But since then, his financial activities in the country have increased.

In the last year, a Blum investment firm paid $23 million for a stake in a Chinese government-owned steel enterprise and acquired sizable interests in the leading producers of soybean milk and candy in China.  Blum's firm, Newbridge Capital Ltd., received an important boost from a $10-million investment by the International Finance Corp., an arm of the World Bank.  Experts said that IFC backing typically confers legitimacy and can help attract other investors.

No conflict of interest here.  "Here's a more recent connection between Sen Feinstein and China the press has ignored.  ZTE, the heavily sanctioned Chinese telecom company that paid a $1bn fine to the U.S., hired its first in-house lobbyist in '11 – none other than a former Feinstein aide," noted Benjamin Weingarten, a contributor for the Federalist, in a tweet.  As the Washington Post reported in 2012, Feinstein has a connection to the notorious Chinese communications firm ZTE:

ZTE, which is also based in Shenzhen, spent $80,000 on U.S. lobbying in the first six months of this year, down from $100,000 for the same period a year earlier, Senate records show.  In October 2011, the company registered its first in-house lobbyist, Peter Ruffo, a former aide to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Clearly, there is more here than meets the eye.  Perhaps we might need a special counsel to follow the evidence wherever it may lead.  Right, Mr. Mueller?

Neulich erschienen in den Sozialnetzwerken die Informationen, dass die ukrainischen Rechtsschutzorgane eine Liste von Personen vorbereiten, die der Auslieferung an Polen und an die Türkei unterliegen. Die Auslieferung droht den türkischen Bürgern, die als Funktionäre der in der Türkei verbotenen Terrororganisation FETÖ gelten, und ihre Sympathisanten unter den Krimtataren sowie die ukrainischen Bürger, die das polnische Gesetz über das Institut des Nationalen Gedenkens verletzt haben. Laut dem Befehl, dessen Fotos auf Facebook veröffentlicht wurden, trägt die Spezialeinheit der ukrainischen Polizei KORD die Verantwortung für die Auftragsdurchführung. Diese Einheit verfügt über einen besonderen Status im System der Rechtsschutzorgane und arbeitet mit dem ukrainischen Geheimdienst SBU eng zusammen. Der Autor des Informationslecks behauptet selbst, ehemaliger Mitarbeiter dieser Einheit zu sein, dem für die Nichtausführung des "verräterischen" Befehls gekündigt worden sei, und verbirgt seine Identität, da er Repressalien seitens der ukrainischen Behörden fürchte. Das Handeln von Kiew wirft in der Tat viele Fragen auf. Seine Bewegungsgründe bleiben auch ziemlich umstritten. So ist die in der Türkei als eine Terrororganisation anerkannte FETÖ in der Ukraine offiziell nicht verboten und kontrolliert sogar eine Reihe von Bildungseinrichtungen. Das bedeutet, dass die Mitglieder dieser Organisation gemäß den ukrainischen Gesetzen keine Verbrecher sind und der Auslieferung nicht unterliegen. Zudem läuft Poroschenko Gefahr, auf die Missbilligung seiner Schutzherren in Washington zu stoßen, indem er Erdogan im Kampf gegen Gülenisten Hilfe leistet. Noch absurder scheint die Entscheidung über die Auslieferung der ukrainischen Bürger an Polen, weil als Auslieferungsgrund dafür nichts anderes als das Gesetz über das Institut des Nationalen Gedenkens gilt, also das sogenannte "Anti-Bandera-Gesetz". Vor kurzem löste die Verabschiedung dieses Gesetzes und vor allem sein Teil,...
          Farmer terrorism      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
"‘Farmer terrorism’ is the new Jewish settler slogan justifying the destruction of crops".  Palestinians farming on their own traditional lands is now called 'terrorism'.

I don't like Cole - he's an ultra supremacist Jew who somehow manages to get published by 'anti-Semites' - at all, but here he deals with the interesting question - one of the key questions of our time - of why, say, Bill Kristol, doesn't look like Le Merchant:  "Flinging Poo at a Jew" (the epitome of political incorrectness is highlighted in red):
"This Jewish delusion of being among the “99 percent” is what compels Jews in the West to promote suicidal policies. Some of us really believe that once the “white Christian power structure” is toppled, we’ll lead what replaces it. Which is nonsense. In truth, we’ll be the first ones tossed into the sea. Just ask the Jews of France how welcome they feel now that “people of color” own the streets. This is a Jewish community that largely survived the Nazis, but it’s not surviving the immigrant invasion.
Speaking of Nazis, here’s an irony for the ages: It was Hitler who made the Jews white. Prior to the Holocaust, if you said the word “Jew” to a gentile, the first image that might come to mind would probably not have been a wealthy banker or media mogul, but rather a swarthy shtetl-dweller, a peddler, a rag salesman, Yiddle with a fucking fiddle. There’s a reason 1930s audiences loved Geezil from the Popeye cartoons. He was the stereotype.
But then along came Hitler, who damn near wiped out lower-class Eastern European Jewry. By the 1970s, the caricature of the poor “ethnic” Jew made no sense anymore. If you wanted to stereotype a Jew, you made him an upper-class intellectual nebbish with mother issues, not a lice-infested street vendor. But way too many Jews still see ourselves as the dispossessed, and that illusion informs our politics. We don’t want to face the reality that we’re actually the elite now—so we tell ourselves ghost stories about how Trump wants to put us in camps. That way, we can reassure ourselves that “Okay, maybe we’re a little well-off, but the white Christian powers-that-be want us dead, so we better throw in with our comrades-of-color.”
Take a hack like The New York Times Magazine’s Emily Bazelon. She recently attacked her “fellow whites” for their innumerable flaws. And when a few evil right wingers pointed out that she’s Jewish, she doubled down, stating that she “benefits” from her “whiteness” and therefore whites are “stuck” with her. Yet it took me exactly five seconds to Google-search “Bazelon” and “as a Jew” to reveal column after column in which she refers to Judaism as her “identity” and declares herself a “Jewish liberal.” I knew I’d get those results, because I know Bazelon’s type. She’ll identify as white to attack whites, but—like most Jews—she doesn’t want to lose her “special” identity, her “mark of the oppressed.”"
Kristol and his ilk don't look like Le Merchant because his ancestors managed to get out, by stepping on the corpses of people who look like Le Merchant.  It's obvious that the people who died in Europe in the 30s and 40s died because they couldn't escape, but the kicker is that your ability to escape was a question of class (and the Khazars who run American foreign policy are from the class that got out, with the complication that some of the worst neocons obviously have some non-Khazar blood, some have been 'whitened' with the most important of Khazar intellectual/scientific developments, plastic surgery, and some of the worst Zionists like Saban aren't Khazars at all, so it's complex).  You can't get any more politically incorrect than that!  My question:  Why was there an obvious ethnic bifurcation in Eastern European Jewry?  I'm guessing it is the usual problem of racial purity - the elite Jews - think Rothschilds - didn't interbreed with the ethnic Eastern Europeans, thus remaining pure Khazar.  The same ethnic animus now seems to infect 'white' Jewish attitudes towards the ultra orthodox and the settler movement.  These aren't just policy disagreements - the 'white' Jews actually despise the other Jews, with ironic consequences in weakening Zionism.  As with all supremacisms, the weakness is that the supremacists start to divide themselves on the basis of purity to the ethnic ideal, in this case, how 'white' - purebred Khazar - you are.  This is the single most taboo discussion you can have.

"Jeffrey Goldberg Doesn’t Speak for the Jews" (Klion).  No?  Could have fooled me.  To be read right after reading Cole.

Amazingly on point, Khazar supremacist front Human Rights Watch is going to bat for the mass-murdering Khazar Sackler family by claiming that 'pain management' is a 'human right'!!! You can't make this stuff up!  "Battle Over Opioids: Surprising Push-Back, and Not From Dealers" (Wexler).  Note that you have to be 'woke' to see through this story.

"A Four Person NATO-Funded Team Advises Facebook On Flagging "Propaganda"" (Durden).  The Atlantic Council, due to its obvious lack of any semblance of intellectual rigor, even by the standards of stinktanks, seems like a joke, but here is another example that there is good money and some power to be had in parroting the attitudes of the borg, while providing a parody/semblance of intellectual objectivity and expertise (e.g., Bellingcat).

"Is Democratic Senator Mark Warner The Mastermind Behind Weaponizing US Tech Giants?" (Krieger).

Quite a bit of glee over the tenth anniversary of the failed - and, in retrospect, silly - Georgian war on Russia:
  1. "WSJ: "When Russia Invaded Georgia"" (Sailer);
  2. Sailer's account of what actually happened; 
  3. "Marking 10 Years After Georgia Started War with Russia" (Gorka);
  4. "Repost: Saakashvili Wants War? He Will Get It." (Moon); and
  5. tying Saakashvili's appearance in American 'journalism' to the current world of the American borg: "Was the modern concept of ‘fake news’ born in Georgia a decade ago?" (MacDonald).
Saakashvili can still write PR for the Americans, but he is a man without a country, detested everywhere, with comic repercussions.

"Canadian sniper rifles expected to be in the hands of Ukrainian military by fall, MP says" (Pugliese) (every word is funny, but the last sentence is hilarious):
"While foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland has yet to sign off on the export permit for the rifles, Bezan said he anticipates she will do so as she is a strong supporter of Ukraine.
“If everything goes according to plan I would expect Freeland to sign off sometime this month,” he said. “I think the goal is to have (rifles) in their hands by the time of any fall-winter offensive in Donbass.”
Global Affairs Canada official John Babcock would not say whether Canadian taxpayers are financing the sale, and would not provide any other details about the arms deal. “The government has an obligation to protect confidential commercial information,” he stated in an email. “Further details related to export transactions (for example, names of exporting companies, financial values of individual contracts and transactions, and details of the specific technologies being exported) are protected due to the commercially confidential nature of such information.”
In December, the House of Commons defence committee recommended the Canadian government provide lethal weapons to Ukraine provided it demonstrates it is actively working to eliminate corruption at all levels of government."
"NATO fighter jet ‘accidentally’ fires live missile near Russian border":  "The missile fired by the jet should have self-destructed but apparently failed to do so."

"Venezuela’s soft coup advisor confesses where the opposition failed" (Verdad).  Gene Sharp, the NED, CANVAS, Yugoslavia, and Venezuela.  I would read this, and its comments.  See also:  "Venezuela Parliament Strips Immunity from Lawmakers Over Drone Attack" (one of the alleged coup plotters fled to Colombia!).

"Why Saudi Oil Production Suddenly Dropped" (Paraskova).  Possibly an attempt to jerk up oil prices exploiting uncertainties over the Iran sanctions, but tough to do in a world flooded with oil, or possibly a reflection of a fact tied to the failure of the ARAMCO IPO, the fact that Saudi reserves aren't anywhere near what they are claimed to be.

Shocking news!:  "Israel running campaign against Jeremy Corbyn" (Winstanley).  The extremely hands-on involvement of the Israeli government in what are supposed to be local issues was one of the big revelations of the first half of the Al Jazeera report (the second half, of course, on similar skulduggery in the US, has been shoahed as part of a deal to keep Qatar from being invaded!).

          “We can’t let up”: theatre producer Anna Palenchuk on hunger-striking director Oleg Sentsov      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov is on hunger strike in a prison in Russia’s Far North, but he’s still working on projects. RU

Anna Palenchuk. Photo from personal archive.Oleg Sentsov is a Ukrainian filmmaker and writer, a native of Crimea, best known for his 2011 feature film Gamer. After Russia’s annexation of Crimea, he was arrested, tortured and prosecuted for terrorism offences. According to FSB investigators, Sentsov reportedly planned to set a United Russia office on fire and blow up a local Lenin monument. The investigation and trial was based on testimony received under torture and was later retracted. In 2015, he was sentenced to 20 years in jail by a Russian court.

On 14 May, Sentsov began a hunger strike in support of releasing all Ukrainian political prisoners. I speak to producer Anna Palenchuk about her production of Oleg Sentsov’s dystopian play “Numbers”.

How did you come to start work on your film and stage production of Sentsov’s play “Numbers”?

I’m in constant contact with Oleg through his lawyers, I support his family and I’ve published two of his books: “Buy This Book, It Is Funny” and “Stories”. I’ve been involved in his case since his arrest, and have tried to keep his name constantly in the news. He asked me to stage “Numbers”. That’s how it all started.

When did he ask you to do this?

Two years ago I learned from his sister that he had said “Palenchuk should do a production of the play”, but at the time it was too much for me to get my head round. But the Russian documentary theatre Teatr.doc and other theatres were doing readings of the play, and recently a Russian human rights campaigner told me that Oleg was upset that they were just readings and not an actual production. He wanted “Numbers” to be staged in a conventional theatre, to become part of the standard repertoire – it’s a very important work for him.

A reading of the play “Numbers” in Teatre.doc. Moscow, 2014. Photo: Andrey Kachalyan. The photo was provided by the producer Natalya Josef.I got hold of a copy of the play in 2015, before we published his stories. But since it wasn’t a published edition, it just lay on a shelf. However, after I realised that Putin wasn’t going to release him before the March 2018 presidential election – I had always hoped that he would be amnestied – I decided that I would stage it.

I wrote to Oleg to tell him about this, and he gave me free rein with directing the production. But then I realised that he needed to be drawn into the process. Nobody knows what he is thinking about in prison, but if he were involved it would be something to keep him busy.

How did Oleg react to the idea of getting involved in the production process?

I had a response to my letter from him on 14 May, the very day he began his hunger strike (the letter was dated 12 May). In it, he described the stage set and costumes he wanted. He set out his ideas very clearly and I was really discouraged by the letter: on the one hand, he was announcing his hunger strike; on the other, it was formal work correspondence.

“His body is the only weapon that he has left”

I realised at that moment that Oleg wasn’t planning on taking his own life. The hunger strike had nothing to do with him being bored with being behind bars. His body is the only weapon that he has left. He has the right to do what he felt is necessary with it. I didn’t try to dissuade him, because I respect his opinion. Oleg has taken that decision, and I know that Oleg Sentsov can’t be dissuaded from anything.

There’s going to be a film as well as a stage production?

Back before Oleg started his hunger strike, I wrote to tell him that I was going to do a production of his play. I knew I couldn’t stage it on my own, so I set a time scale for doing it and found people to take part. My ambition is to create the most important cultural project of 2018. And since Oleg’s name is already in the news, it's audience will be a lot bigger than can fit into an auditorium. So I realised that we had to find a way of doing it that would reach the largest possible audience, and started to talk to Oleg about that.

We came to the joint conclusion that we needed to shoot a film in the style of Lars von Trier’s 2003 film “Dogville”, containing elements of both stage and screen. It wouldn’t be pure cinema, but both Oleg and I, as producers, find it easier to think in cinematic terms. As he wrote to me: “You do what you like with the theatrical side of things, but I’ll look after the screen version.” Despite his hunger strike, Oleg sends me very clear, succinct messages.

Tell us about your correspondence with Sentsov. How do you shoot a film and stage a play with a director who is in charge of the production, but isn’t physically present because he’s in prison?

If I was working with other colleagues, it might not have been realistic. In the history of world cinema, there has never been a film directed by someone sitting in a prison cell. But we live in times when we need to be pioneers in a lot of things. It’s very difficult, but not impossible.

The photo was provided by the producer Natalya Josef.The main thing is to get people who are creatively and mentally close to Oleg involved in the process. We’re choosing an artistic director who he has worked with him before, and our camera operator is also super-professional. There’s a great saying, that “in cinema, every small detail matters”. And with cinema, you’re never working on your own: it’s always a team effort. Oleg must be released, and he wants to direct his film when that happens.

And in any case, our format lies somewhere between theatre and cinema: we need to confirm the stage set and costumes with Oleg, and only he can fine-tune the script. There’s a lot he can do remotely, and we can use his work as we move into pre-production and the shoot.

How are you selecting your actors?

Oleg tells me who he can see as which character. We can’t, unfortunately play him videos of potential cast members, but we take photos and show them to him. He has suggested a lot of people himself, including Viktor Andrienko, Rima Zyubina and Natalya Vasko.

The photo was provided by the producer Natalya Josef.When we make suggestions to actors about taking part in Oleg’s story, they all say “yes”, but Oleg is giving me clear instructions about not using people who will empathise with him over his hunger strike. He tells me that I need to cast people who just like the material – that’s the most important thing.

Rima Zyubina is one of the people who doesn’t only empathise, but acts as well.

She also likes the material and has taken part in readings: she knows the play well. We also have Yevgeny Chernikov, an actor friend of Oleg’s from Simferopol, on board. We need to hold some more auditions, in any case. We have now also acquired Darius Jabłoński, head of the Polish Cinema Academy, as co-producer. Darius was involved in making “The Trial”, director Askold Kurov’s film about Oleg. Kurov is making enormous efforts to have Sentsov released. I spoke to him about it at the Cannes Festival in May and we’re going to do the post-production of our film in Poland.

Is the Ukrainian state doing anything to help?

We’ve just shown the scenario to the Ministry of Culture, as Ukraine has funds officially allocated for making patriotic films. But not all the experts accept our work as patriotic.

When do you start shooting?

We’re planning to shoot in November-December. A lot depends now on the availability of state funding.

Will the film be launched in Ukraine?

We’re hoping for worldwide distribution. Everyone empathises closely with Oleg and it’s important to have his work shown. For the international cinema world, it would seem ludicrous for a director to be overseeing a production from a prison cell. But the film and stage director Kirill Serebrennikov has been working on a film despite being under house arrest since August 2017 and the Iranian director Jafar Panahi continued to make films while under house arrest for several years. But Sentsov’s story should show the world his inner strength and how he is changing views of our country.

His actions reveal his spiritual resilience. I thought that no one could survive such a long hunger strike, but evidently it is possible. His example is a sign that we can all do much more than we imagine. I keep thanking Oleg for showing me that: a year ago I never thought I would be able to work on a play and film simultaneously.

Does your work on Oleg’s film help you not give up?

I’m amazed at how I keep growing stronger and stronger. I can’t accept the fact that he is in prison. I’m so happy that the people who were involved at the start are still on board. We mustn’t ever relax. I don’t know if anyone can have any influence on Putin, but if we give up, we’ll lose this war. And we can’t lose it – the life of the impossibly talented director Oleg Sentsov is at stake.

Top Middle East intel official says Mossad behind killing of Syrian rocket chief-New York Times quotes senior figure from intelligence agency in the region; Israeli cabinet minister refuses to comment on report but says it's a 'good thing' Aziz Azbar is dead-By TOI staff and Agencies-AUG 8,18

A senior official from a Middle East intelligence agency has pointed the finger at Israel’s Mossad for the killing of  a top Syrian chemical weapons and rocket scientist over the weekend, The New York Times reported Tuesday, reinforcing accusations from Syria.Aziz Azbar was killed when his car exploded in the northern city of Masyaf late Saturday night. The unnamed official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the paper  that Israel was behind the attack and said his own intelligence agency had been informed of the Israeli operation.A senior Israeli government official declined to comment on the report Tuesday, but noted it was “a good thing” that Azbar was dead.A pro-government Syrian paper on Sunday had accused the Mossad of being behind the hit. Azbar’s driver was also killed in the blast.According to the report, Israel believed that Azbar was leading a classified weapons development program called Sector 4 at the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center, and was busy re-building an underground weapons factory to replace the one said destroyed by Israel last year.Azbar was working alongside Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite al-Quds Force and enjoyed high-level access to both the Syrian and Iranian governments, the New York Times said.Azbar and his team were working to begin mass-producing precision-guided missiles by retrofitting SM600 Tishreen rockets. They were also working on a solid-fuel plant for missiles and rockets, a safer alternative to liquid fuel, the report said. The Tishreen is a Syrian version of the Iranian Fateh-110, a missile with a range of 200 kilomenters (125 miles.) On Sunday the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the Syria war through local contacts, also reported Azbar’s death. It said he specialized in developing rocket systems at the center’s Masyaf facility in Hama.Israel’s Hadashot TV news said Sunday night he was in charge of a project improving the range and accuracy of the regime’s Scud missiles. Reports have also indicated an Iranian missile operation at the site.The intelligence official also told The New York Times that Azbar had for years been active in the Assad regime’s chemical-weapons production program and was also involved in coordinating Iranian and Hezbollah activities in Syria.The Scientific Research and Studies Center in Masyaf, also known by its French acronym CERS, has long been associated with chemical weapons production, and was the target of a number of airstrikes attributed to Israel. An alleged Israeli strike on the site in April reportedly killed a number of Iranian soldiers.The official quoted in The New York Times Tuesday said that Israel had been tracking Azbar for years, and had wanted to assassinate him over his prominent role in Syria’s weapons program even before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war in 2011. He said it was the fourth time in three years the Mossad has assassinated an enemy weapons engineer in a foreign country.Israel has been blamed for the killing of several scientists in recent years, including two Hamas engineers in the last 18 months.A Hamas rocket scientist was shot dead by gunmen in Malaysia in April and a drone engineer was killed in Tunisia in December 2016. Hamas blamed the Mossad for both deaths.Israel does not usually comment on reports of its alleged military operations in Syria but has repeatedly warned it would work to keep advanced weapons out of Hezbollah terrorists’ hands and has vowed to stop Iran establishing a military presence in the country.On Tuesday, Gilad Erdan who heads the Public Security and Strategic Affairs ministries declined to comment on Israel’s involvement in Azbar’s killing, but said it was “a good thing” that he was dead.“We obviously do not comment on these kinds of reports — neither confirming nor denying them — but we can talk about the man himself, who was responsible for putting high quality weapons in the hands of some bad people, and so we can say that the fact he is no longer with us is a good thing,” he told Israel Radio when asked about the New York Times report.Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Sunday sought to downplay the possibility of Israeli involvement.“Every day in the Middle East there are hundreds of explosions and settling of scores. Every time they try to place the blame on us. So we won’t take this too seriously,” he told Hadashot News.An insurgent group calling itself the Abu Amara Brigades claimed responsibility for the operation. The group has previously claimed attacks targeting officials and militia commanders inside government territory.In April 2017, the Trump administration placed sanctions on hundreds of CERS employees following a chemical attack on the Syrian rebel-held city of Khan Sheikhoun that killed dozens of civilians, including children.Another CERS facility near Damascus was bombed by US, British and French forces in April after another chemical attack.The Syrian regime has been accused of dozens of gas attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians during the war, even after it said it was giving up its stockpile.

Israeli minister says ‘good chance’ Iran will renegotiate nuclear deal-Gilad Erdan slams 'morally bankrupt' EU for trying to salvage accord; Israeli intelligence community said optimistic that new sanctions will force major change in Tehran-By TOI staff-AUG 8,18

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Tuesday praised the US for reimposing tough sanctions on Iran that brought back into effect the harsh penalties lifted under the Iran nuclear deal.“It would be better if the Iranian regime would disappear entirely from this world, but it would also be a blessing to see Obama’s bad nuclear agreement replaced with a better one,” he told Israel Radio. US President Donald Trump abandoned the deal in May.“In my opinion, there is a good chance of that,” said Erdan, who also heads the Strategic Affairs Ministry. “We can already see positive results from what Trump did.”Erdan criticized the European Union for trying to salvage the deal by ensuring that economic benefits guaranteed under the 2015 accord continue to flow to the country.“The EU is morally bankrupt, and we need to remember that next time they try to lecture us,” Erdan said. The EU, along with China, Russia, France, Germany and the UK, was also a signatory to the deal and has not withdrawn.In Israel, the reimposition of US sanctions was lauded as a historic turning point that could ultimately lead to the Islamic Republic’s downfall.On Tuesday, Israel Radio quoted an unnamed senior official who said the Israeli intelligence community was optimistic the sanctions would lead to major changes in Iran and force Tehran to renegotiate the deal.“We would like to see a change in policy, but there is no way of knowing how long that will take,” the official said.“The only hammer available right now is economic, and using that, there is a good change Iran will fall to its knees,” he said. “Right now Iran is weak and hysterical.”The new sanctions on Iran took effect just after midnight in Washington on Tuesday as part of Trump’s withdrawal from the international accord designed to limit Iran’s nuclear program.Trump signed an executive order restoring the penalties on Monday, which he said would put “maximum economic pressure” on the country. The sanctions affect financial transactions that involve US dollars, Iran’s automotive sector, the purchase of commercial planes and metals including gold.A second batch of US sanctions targeting Iran’s oil sector and central bank are to be reimposed in early November.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump for ratcheting up pressure on the Islamic Republic, and called on European nations to follow his lead.“It symbolizes the determination to curb Iran’s regional aggression and its ongoing plans to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said in a video released Monday.On Monday, the European Union’s diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini said the bloc, as well as Britain, France and Germany, deeply regretted Washington’s move.“We are determined to protect European economic operators engaged in legitimate business with Iran,” she said in a statement.Many large European firms are leaving Iran for fear of US penalties, and Trump warned of “severe consequences” against firms and individuals that continued to do business with Iran.The impact of the return of sanctions has ramped up tensions inside Iran, which has seen days of protests and strikes in multiple towns and cities over water shortages, high prices and wider anger at the political system.Severe reporting restrictions have made it impossible to verify the swirl of claims coming through social media.Agencies contributed to this report.

Fresh US sanctions on Iran kick in as clock hits midnight-Reimposition of economic restrictions as part of Trump's withdrawal from nuclear deal met with cheers in Jerusalem, jeers in Tehran and Europe-By TOI staff-AUG 8,18

New US sanctions on Iran took effect just after midnight in Washington on Tuesday as part of President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the international accord meant to limit the Iranian nuclear program.On Monday, Trump signed an executive order restoring sanctions on Iran, which he said would would put “maximum economic pressure” on the country. He also held out hope for new negotiations between Iran and the United States that would result in another, more wide-ranging, accord.The new sanctions target Iran’s automotive sector and trade in gold and precious metals. They come ahead of even more biting sanctions set to be introduced on November 5 against the country’s energy and banking sectors.While cheered by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other senior Israeli officials, the reimposition of US sanctions was bemoaned by the nuclear deal’s European signatories and the EU, who defended the accord and vowed to protect European firms from US economic penalties.In a White House statement announcing the sanctions, Trump repeated his criticisms of the deal, and argued that Iran’s behavior since the pact was implemented has vindicated his long-held position.“The JCPOA, a horrible, one-sided deal, failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb, and it threw a lifeline of cash to a murderous dictatorship that has continued to spread bloodshed, violence, and chaos,” Trump said.“Since the deal was reached, Iran’s aggression has only increased. The regime has used the windfall of newly accessible funds it received under the JCPOA to build nuclear-capable missiles, fund terrorism, and fuel conflict across the Middle East and beyond.”Following Trump’s announced US departure from the deal in May, the White House has, through 17 rounds, sanctioned 38 Iran-related targets.The objective, the administration has indicated, is to change Iranian behavior.“Reimposition of nuclear-related sanctions through today’s actions further intensifies pressure on Tehran to change its conduct,” Trump said Monday.In May, Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal forged under the Obama administration and with five other world powers, a move that set in motion a renewal of sanctions against Iran that had been removed once the landmark accord was implemented in January 2016.In Israel, the reimposition of US sanctions was lauded as a historic turning point that could ultimately lead to the Islamic Republic’s downfall, with senior officials calling on other countries to follow suit.“It symbolizes the determination to curb Iran’s regional aggression and its ongoing plans to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” said Netanyahu in a video released Monday, moments after Trump signed new sanctions into law.Jerusalem’s warm embrace of the US sanctions in Iran stood in stark contrast to the European Union, which said it would move to protect countries that remain in Iran.“We deeply regret the re-imposition of sanctions by the US, due to the latter’s withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA),” the union’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, and the foreign ministers of the UK, France and Germany said in a joint statement, using the nuclear deal’s technical name.“The JCPOA is working and delivering on its goal, namely to ensure that the Iranian program remains exclusively peaceful,” the statement went on. “It is a key element of the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture, crucial for the security of Europe, the region, and the entire world.”The European Commission vowed to oppose the new US sanctions regime, updating its so-called Blocking Statute that is aimed at “sustaining trade and economic relations between the EU and Iran.”In Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani rejected Trump’s call for renewed negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, saying it was a statement intended only for American audiences and to foment chaos in Iran.In a televised interview, he said “Negotiations with sanctions doesn’t make sense. They are imposing sanctions on Iranian children, patients and the nation.” He was referring to fears that essential supplies such as medicines would be affected when sanctions return.He said Iran had “always welcomed negotiations,” but that Washington would first have to demonstrate it can be trusted.“If you’re an enemy and you stab the other person with a knife and then you say you want negotiations, then the first thing you have to do is remove the knife.”“How do they show they are trustworthy? By returning to the JCPOA,” he said, using the technical name for the 2015 nuclear deal.Rouhani fell back on the rhetoric of many of his predecessors by referencing the 1953 CIA-backed coup that overthrew Iran’s elected prime minister and cemented the shah’s rule.“I have no pre-conditions” for negotiating with America “if the US government is ready to negotiate about paying compensation to the Iranian nation from 1953 until now,” Rouhani said. “The US owes the Iranian nation for its intervention in Iran.Two weeks ago, Trump indicated that he was willing to meet with Iran’s leaders at any time and without any preconditions.“I would certainly meet with Iran if they’re ready to meet,” Trump said during a White House press conference, adding that he was willing to do so with “no preconditions.”The week before, Trump tweeted at Rouhani that Iran would “suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before,” in a dramatic all-caps tweet.To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018-His tweet was ostensibly a response to a speech Rouhani gave the night before in which he threatened that the United States would experience the “mother of all wars” if it entered into an armed confrontation with Iran.Agencies contributed to this report.

2 officers dismissed from elite army unit after training accidents-After 2 Maglan soldiers injured in separate incidents, IDF says it is 'unacceptable and unprofessional to unnecessarily endanger' troops during training-By TOI staff-AUG 8,18

The Israel Defense Forces announced on Monday the dismissal of two officers from an elite commando unit following a pair of recent training accidents in which soldiers were injured.Additionally, the commander of the platoon in which the officers served was reprimanded, the IDF said in a statement summarizing the investigation into the incidents led by Brig. Gen. Yaron Finkelman, head of the 98th Paratroopers Division.In one of the instances, a soldier from the Maglan unit was seriously injured during a training exercise while jumping from a moving vehicle into a thorn bush, according to the army.The soldier’s commander, who the army named only as First Lieutenant Y., was removed as a result of the incident. Finkelman also ordered a halt to all training exercises in the Commando Brigade until the investigation’s recommendations are implemented and the unit’s training files are reviewed.“The division commander determined this action was improper, unprofessional, immoral, dangerous and unnecessary,” the IDF said.In the second incident a soldier was moderately wounded during Krav Maga exercises but did not receive medical treatment immediately after. The army said the injury occurred during a Krav Maga demonstration in which protective equipment was not used.The IDF said the soldier’s commander, First Lieutenant G., was removed for “acting erroneously during the [Krav Maga] training and acted negligently by not sending the soldier for treatment.”Krav Maga exercises have been put on hold in the Commando Brigade until commanders and instructors undergo a “refresher” of the training commands, the army said. New mechanisms for oversight and approval of Krav Maga training in the brigade will also be introduced, the IDF added.The army said the findings of the investigation would be given to the Military Advocate General to decide whether to open a Military Police investigation. It also said commanders were in touch with the families of the injured soldiers.“The IDF takes risks in the face of the enemy as required to fulfill its operational duties,” the army said. “It is unacceptable and unprofessional to unnecessarily endanger soldiers during training and routine activities.”Parents of soldiers in the unit claimed to the Ynet news site earlier this week that routine training for the soldiers regularly crossed the threshold into violence. They also complained of the secrecy surrounding the activities of the unit, and said they relied on the officers and commanders to keep their children safe.Maglan is a special elite unit that operates behind enemy lines. The unit’s 18 months of training is among the most strenuous in the IDF.

Firefighters battling 122 active forest fires across northern Ontario-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

TORONTO — There was little rest for firefighters in northern Ontario during the long weekend as they continued battling flames on numerous fire lines.The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources says there were 122 active fires as of Monday night, including 78 in the northwest region and 44 in the northeast.Eighteen fires in the northeast and seven in the northwest were classified as out of control.The largest fire in the northeast, "Parry Sound 33," covers about 113 square kilometres and remains out of control. Officials say "extremely dry fuel conditions remain" despite the area receiving about 10 millimetres of rain on Monday.An evacuation order for residents of several communities in the French River area remain in effect and numerous travel restrictions remain in force.Another large fire dubbed "North Bay 72" about 30 kilometres west of Temiskaming Shores remains out of control. That blaze began on July 8 and was being held at about 272 square kilometres.The ministry says there have been 918 forest fires so far this year compared to 354 in 2017.The Canadian Press.

Health care workers ask Tories to stop repeal of sex-ed curriculum-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

TORONTO — Nearly 1,800 health-care workers from across the province are asking the Tory government to stop plans to repeal and replace Ontario's modernized sex-ed curriculum.The group of doctors, nurses and social workers signed a petition that was delivered to the provincial legislature today by NDP Leader Andrea Horwath.Premier Doug Ford had long promised to scrap the sex-ed curriculum updated by his Liberal predecessors, and has said the government will engage in a province-wide consultation to create a new lesson plan.The government has said teachers will use a 1998 version of the curriculum this fall as those consultations are underway.The group of health-care workers who signed the petition says repealing the curriculum will put children's safety and mental health at risk by providing them with outdated information.In addition to individual workers, groups including the Registered Nurses of Ontario, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Ontario Association of Social Workers have signed the petition.The Canadian Press.

Largest wildfire in California history to burn for rest of August-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-By Dan Whitcomb-August 8, 2018

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California's biggest wildfire on record was expected to burn for the rest of the month, fire officials said on Tuesday, as hot and windy conditions challenged thousands of fire crews battling eight major blazes burning out of control across the state.The Mendocino Complex grew to span 290,692 acres (117,639 hectares) by Tuesday morning, with barely a third of it contained since two wildfires merged at the southern tip of the Mendocino National Forest, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said.It is the largest of eight major fires burning out of control across California, prompting U.S. President Donald Trump to declare a "major disaster" in the state.The size of the fire has surpassed that of last year's Thomas Fire, which burned 281,893 acres in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties and destroyed more than 1,000 structures.Nearly half of the ten largest California wildfires on record occurred in the last decade.The Mendocino Complex has burnt 75 homes and forced the evacuation of thousands of people. Fire officials had hoped to extinguish the fire by mid-August, but pushed that date to early September on Tuesday.Temperatures could reach 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 Celsius) in Northern California over the next few days, with gusty winds fanning the flames of the complex, a National Weather Service meteorologist said.The 3,900 personnel battling the Mendocino Complex on Monday were focusing on keeping flames from breaking through fire lines on a ridge above the foothill communities of Nice, Lucerne, Glen Haven, and Clearlake Oaks, said Tricia Austin, a spokeswoman for Cal Fire.Elsewhere in California, evacuations were ordered for cabins in Cleveland National Forest's canyons in Orange County on Monday afternoon, after a blaze broke out to quickly engulf 700 acres (283 hectares).The Carr Fire, which has torched 167,000 acres in the scenic Shasta-Trinity region north of Sacramento since breaking out on July 23, was 47 percent contained.The Carr Fire has been blamed for seven deaths, including that of a 21-year-old Pacific Gas and Electric Company lineman Jay Ayeta. The company said on Sunday he was killed in a vehicle crash as he worked with crews in dangerous terrain."California wildfires are being magnified and made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren't allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized," Trump wrote on Twitter, without providing supporting evidence.A Cal Fire spokesman declined to comment on Trump's claims but said crews did not lack water to fight the flames.Environmental activists and some politicians say the intensity of the state's wildfire season could be linked in part to climate change.(Additional reporting by Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee; Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky and Bernadette Baum)

Amnesty International calls for united front against Saudi Arabia-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

MONTREAL — Amnesty International says the global community should form a united front with Canada and speak out to protect two recently arrested women, including the sister of jailed blogger Raif Badawi.Genevieve Paul, the director of Amnesty's francophone branch, points out that pressure is put on the Saudi government when news of such arrests becomes public."I don't think it will worsen the situation because very often when we make evident unjust imprisonments, like the case of Samar Badawi, that increases their protection and increases pressure on the government," she said in an interview Monday.Amnesty International has said Badawi's sister was recently detained along with Nassima al-Sada, another prominent female activist.Paul pointed to the case of Raif Badawi as an example of how putting international pressure on the Saudis can have an impact."He was sentenced to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in prison, he received 50 lashes in 2015 and he could receive others, but he hasn't," she said."We do believe that this is because of continuous pressure and visibility on Raif's case so we're really hoping that more states speak out on Samar Badawi and all other activists."Paul stressed the situation is worse when the government does what it wants in secret and is not singled out for alleged human rights violations. "Clearly the aggressive reaction of the Saudi government shows that it's been disturbed," she added.Saudi Arabia said Sunday it was ordering Canada's ambassador to leave the country and freezing all new trade and investment transactions with Canada in a spat over human rights.The Islamic Kingdom made the decision in retaliation to a Global Affairs Canada's tweet that expressed concerns about the arrests of civil society and women's rights activists in the country, such as Samar Badawi.Paul said the Saudi government knows there are serious human rights violations in the country."It shows the real colours of the regime, and the international community should toughen its tone against the Saudi government," she said.The Amnesty spokeswoman noted a ban on women drivers was lifted in June, but that a number of activists who campaigned for the right to drive were arrested and face up to 20 years in prison."That's proof there's double talk, it's proof that there is no real reform in the country," she said. "On the contrary, the repression has intensified." She reiterated that Ottawa should suspend the sale of armoured vehicles to the Saudis, claiming that Amnesty still has strong reasons to believe they are being used in Yemen to commit serious human rights violations."We've been saying that without a serious human rights evaluation, we should not be transferring any military aid, any arms to Saudi Arabia," Paul said.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Monday the Canadian government will continue to raise its voice and defend human rights."We will always speak up for human rights, we will always speak up for women's rights around the world," she told reporters in Vancouver. "The most important thing for us is the life and the living conditions of activists."Ensaf Haidar, Raif Badawi's wife, who lives in Quebec with her three children, said Monday she was surprised when she heard about the two new arrests.Haidar and her children became Canadian citizens on Canada Day.Freeland also said Haidar and her family merit special attention from the government of Canada, adding, "a lot of Canadian civil society has been speaking up for her.""It's something that we do," Freeland said. "We stand up for Canadians and their families around the world."Peter Rakobowchuk , The Canadian Press.

For God or party? China's Christians face test of faith-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

NANYANG, China — The 62-year-old Chinese shopkeeper had waited nearly his entire adult life to see his dream of building a church come true — a brick house with a sunny courtyard and spacious hall with room for 200 believers.But in March, about a dozen police officers and local officials suddenly showed up at the church on his property and made the frightened congregants disperse. They ordered that the cross, a painting of the Last Supper and Bible verse calligraphy be taken down. And they demanded that all services stop until each person, along with the church itself, was registered with the government, said the shopkeeper, Guo.Without warning, Guo and his neighbours in China's Christian heartland province of Henan had found themselves on the front lines of an ambitious new effort by the officially atheist ruling Communist Party to dictate — and in some cases displace — the practice of faith in the country."I've always prayed for our country's leaders, for our country to get stronger," said Guo, who gave only his last name out of fear of government retribution. "They were never this severe before, not since I started going to church in the 80's. Why are they telling us to stop now?"Under President Xi Jinping, China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, believers are seeing their freedoms shrink dramatically even as the country undergoes a religious revival. Experts and activists say that as he consolidates his power, Xi is waging the most severe systematic suppression of Christianity in the country since religious freedom was written into the Chinese constitution in 1982.The crackdown on Christianity is part of a broader push by Xi to "Sinicize" all the nation's religions by infusing them with "Chinese characteristics" such as loyalty to the Communist Party. Islamic crescents and domes have been stripped from mosques, and a campaign launched to "re-educate" tens of thousands of Uighur Muslims. Tibetan children have been moved from Buddhist temples to schools and banned from religious activities during their summer holidays, state-run media report.This spring, a five-year plan to "Sinicize" Christianity in particular was introduced, along with new rules on religious affairs. Over the last several months, local governments across the country have shut down hundreds of private Christian "house churches." A statement last week from 47 in Beijing alone said they had faced "unprecedented" harassment since February.Authorities have also seized Bibles, while major e-commerce retailers JD.com and Taobao pulled them off their sites. Children and party members are banned from churches in some areas, and at least one township has encouraged Christians to replace posters of Jesus with portraits of Xi. Some Christians have resorted to holding services in secret.A dozen Chinese Protestants interviewed by the Associated Press described gatherings that were raided, interrogations and surveillance, and one pastor said hundreds of his congregants were questioned individually about their faith. Like Guo, the majority requested that their names be partly or fully withheld because they feared punishment from authorities. After reporters visited Henan in June, some interviewees said they were contacted by police or local officials who urged them not to discuss any new measures around Christianity.The party has long been wary of Christianity because of its affiliation with Western political values. Several Chinese human rights lawyers jailed for their work, including Jiang Tianyong and Li Heping, are outspoken Christians. So too are many Hong Kong pro-democracy activists, not least among them 2014 protest leader Joshua Wong."Chinese leaders have always been suspicious of the political challenge or threat that Christianity poses to the Communist regime," said Xi Lian, a scholar of Christianity in China at Duke University. "Under Xi, this fear of Western infiltration has intensified and gained a prominence that we haven't seen for a long time."___Guo, who keeps a small storefront selling ornate doors in a riverside district, once had eyesight so poor that he could not distinguish the sky from the earth. But after finding God at 27 years old, he made a seemingly miraculous recovery that he attributes to his faith.For decades, he, like many Christians in China, shuttled from one unregistered house church to another, where folding chairs served as pews and coffee tables as lecterns. Two years ago, he and 10 other Christians pooled their money to erect a permanent church on his property.They are part of what experts describe as a spiritual awakening in China.The number of Chinese believers of all faiths has doubled in two decades to an estimated 200 million, by official count, as the hold of the Communist party has weakened. Among them are an estimated 67 million Christians, including Catholics — a number that is expected to swell to become the world's largest Christian population in a matter of decades. This rapid growth has reinvigorated the party's longtime mission to domesticate a religion traditionally aligned with the West.Historians believe that Christianity was known to China as early as the seventh century, and was later propagated by Jesuit missionaries starting in the 1500s. In recent decades the religion has faced by turns heavy persecution and tacit acceptance.During the Cultural Revolution, when Mao sought to eradicate all religions, Christians were jailed, tortured and publicly humiliated. But they survived by operating covertly and grew steadily in number after Mao's death in 1976, when a populace disillusioned with the Communist Party began to seek moral guidance elsewhere.Chinese Christians say the Bible gives them a sense of right versus wrong and the strength to endure in a country where power often trumps justice. While China's rapid growth has brought prosperity to many, others despair at what they see as a deterioration of public morals. The deaths of children in scandals involving tainted infant formula and shoddily-built schools in recent years have led to the sense that modern China was in the midst of an ethical crisis."After the 'collapse' of communist ideology, no value system has been in place to fill the spiritual vacuum," said writer Zhang Lijia. "China has witnessed a religious revival in recent decades precisely because of this vacuum and relaxed control."Officials once largely tolerated the unregistered Protestant house churches that sprang up independent of the official Christian Council, clamping down on some while allowing others to grow. But this year they have taken a tougher approach that relies partly on "thought reform" — a phrase for political indoctrination. Last November, Christian residents of a rural township in southeast Jiangxi province were persuaded to replace posters of the cross and Jesus Christ inside their homes with portraits of Xi, a local official said."Through our thought reform, they've voluntarily done it," Qi Yan, a member of the township party committee, told the AP by phone. "The move is aimed at Christian families in poverty, and we educated them to believe in science and not in superstition, making them believe in the party."The poster campaign appears to symbolize what analysts see as the underlying force driving the change in the party's approach to religion: the ascendance of Xi."Xi is a closet Maoist — he is very anxious about thought control," said Willy Lam, a Chinese politics expert at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. "He definitely does not want people to be faithful members of the church, because then people would profess their allegiance to the church rather than to the party, or more exactly, to Xi himself."Various state and local officials declined repeated requests to comment. But in 2016, Xi explicitly warned against the perceived foreign threats tied to faith, telling a religion conference: "We must resolutely guard against overseas infiltrations via religious means." And in April, the religious affairs department published an article saying that churches must endorse the party's leadership as part of "Sinicization.""Only Sinicized churches can obtain God's love," the article stated.The government is even cracking down on Christians more aggressively through legal means. In March, a prominent Chinese house church leader with US permanent residency was sentenced to seven years in prison after he built Christian schools in Myanmar. And half a dozen Christians were sentenced last month to up to 13 years in jail for involvement in a "cult," according to U.S.-based Christian non-profit ChinaAid.The pressure has pushed several dozen pastors and their families to flee to the United States in recent years, ChinaAid says. The wife of one pastor under house arrest left for Midland, Texas about a year ago, after authorities warned that their children might have trouble getting an education in China. She said members of their church in China were barred from being baptized, and even a simple Christmas service was interrupted."The government says that we have religious freedom, but really there is no freedom at all," said the pastor's wife, who asked to remain anonymous for her husband's safety. "Many of our Christian brothers and sisters are upset and fearful."Those who resist pay the price.After Jin Mingri, a prominent pastor who leads Zion Church in Beijing, refused local authorities' request to install surveillance cameras inside his house church, police individually questioned hundreds of members of the 1,500-person congregation, he said. The congregants faced veiled threats, Jin said, and many were asked to sign a pledge promising to leave Zion, which the government agents called illegal, politically incorrect and a cult. Some people lost their jobs or were evicted from rented apartments because police intimidated their bosses and landlords.For 11 years, the church has been housed on one floor of an office building, but the property management informed Jin in May that they would have to move out at the end of the summer. Jin said the management admitted to being influenced by external "pressures.""A lot of our flock are terrified by the pressure that the government is putting on them," he said. "It's painful to think that in our own country's capital, we must pay so dearly just to practice our faith."__At the epicenter of the drive to control the Christian community in China is Henan, the cradle of Chinese civilization and the entry point for many of the earliest foreign missionaries. Today, the province is one of the most populous in the country and a key part of Xi's fight against poverty, as proclaimed by red banners across acres of peanut farms and oil fields.Around the time authorities ordered Guo's church to stop congregating in March, his district announced a crackdown on private Christian meeting spots. On a single Sunday morning, the announcement said, 700 religious banners were removed, 200 religious texts seized and 31 illegal Christian gathering places shut down. Officials went door-to-door stripping decorative scrolls bearing the cross from home entrances.In Zhengzhou, Henan's capital, all that is left of one house church is shattered glass, tangled wires and torn hymnbooks, strewn among the rubble of a knocked-down wall. Pegged to another wall is a single wooden cross, still intact.The church inside a commercial building had served about 100 believers for years. But in late January, nearly 60 officials from the local religion department and police station appeared without warning. Armed with electric saws, they demolished the church, confiscated Bibles and computers and held a handful of young worshippers — including a 14-year-old girl — at a police station for more than 10 hours, according to a church leader.The authorities called the church illegal. The church leader said they had brought documentation to the religion department three or four times in an attempt to formally register it, but never received a response. Now, they have ceased to congregate.The church leader prays that the government will change its mind."We support President Xi," he said. "All we ask for is a space for our faith."That space for Xu Shijuan, a 63-year-old Seventh-Day Adventist, was her living room, where she held house church gatherings for four years. She stopped in March, after a group of men led by a local official ordered her to disband the meeting of about two dozen elderly Christians."If you don't heed our orders, the next group to come will be law enforcement," he said, according to Xu. "They will use force to disband you."Xu readily complied. "The people have dispersed, but our faith has not," she told the AP at her home in Zhengzhou. "God's path cannot be blocked. The more you try to control it, the more it will grow."Even Protestant churches already registered with the state have not been spared greater restrictions. When reporters visited five such churches in Henan this June, all bore notices at their entrances stating that minors and party members were not allowed inside. A banner above one church door exhorted members to "implement the basic direction of the party's religious work." Another church erected a Chinese flag at the foot of its steps.Some congregations now sing the national anthem during services, according to a house church pastor named Liu. Another pastor said his government-approved church shut down its Sunday school and cancelled all activities for children after receiving orders in February.Across Henan, house churches that once hosted gatherings of hundreds have now sealed their doors and split into groups of no more than a handful. Services are announced last-minute and held in different locations each week, often under the cloak of darkness.For a time, Guo's church did the same. They avoided congregating on Sundays to escape authorities' notice.But the church members were scared, and the group dwindled to 30. Authorities appealed to Guo to help gather information on his fellow Christians. He was given a form, reviewed by the AP, which asked for churchgoers' names, educational background and addresses, as well as the length of time they had been faithful and whether they were baptized.The brick house was largely deserted this summer. Around the door frame, tattered red outlines remained of a scroll that once read "God's love is as deep as the sea."Inside, Guo has refused to remove the cross and other decorations, telling authorities they are within his private property.Among them, pinned to a wall in the nave, is a bright blue poster that quotes China's constitutional promise of religious freedom.__AP writer Brian Skoloff contributed to this report from Midland, Texas.__Follow Yanan Wang on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yananw.Yanan Wang, The Associated Press.

Russia warns of 'horrible' conflict if Georgia joins NATO-[Associated Press]-YAHOONEWS-VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV-August 8, 2018

MOSCOW (AP) — An attempt by NATO to incorporate the former Soviet republic of Georgia could trigger a new, "horrible" conflict, Russia's prime minister said Tuesday in a stern warning to the West marking 10 years since the Russia-Georgia war.Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with the Kommersant daily broadcast by Russian state television that NATO's plans to eventually offer membership to Georgia are "absolutely irresponsible" and a "threat to peace."Medvedev was Russia's president during the August 2008 war, which erupted when Georgian troops tried unsuccessfully to regain control over the Moscow-backed breakaway province of South Ossetia and Russia sent troops that routed the Georgian military in five days of fighting.The Russian army was poised to advance on the Georgian capital, but Medvedev rolled it back, accepting a truce mediated by the European Union.After the war, Georgia entirely lost control of both South Ossetia and another separatist region, Abkhazia. Russia has strengthened its military presence in both regions and recognized them as independent states, but only a few countries have followed suit.The European Union on Tuesday reiterated its "firm support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders" and lamented the Russian military presence in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.In a show of support for Georgia, foreign ministers of Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, and a Cabinet member from Ukraine, visited Tbilisi Tuesday, urging Russia to withdraw its troops from Abkhazia and South Ossetia. "Nowadays no country can change the borders of another country by force," said Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.Russian-Georgian relations have improved since the war, but the issue of the breakaway regions remains, preventing the full normalization of ties.Medvedev warned that NATO's attempt to embrace Georgia could have catastrophic consequences."There is an unresolved territorial conflict ... and would they bring such a country into the military alliance?" he said. "Do they understand the possible implications? It could provoke a horrible conflict."Medvedev pointed to Moscow's recognition of independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and the Russian military bases there, saying that any attempt to change the status quo could lead to "extremely grave consequences." ''I hope that NATO's leadership will be smart enough not to take any steps in that direction," he said.The Russian prime minister described NATO's eastward expansion as a major security threat to Russia."Whatever our colleagues from the alliance may say, NATO countries see Russia as a potential enemy," he said. "We can't help getting worried when the circle around our country keeps narrowing as more and more countries join NATO. NATO's expansion clearly poses a threat to the Russian Federation."

Киев начинает свою историю с середины IХ века. За все время своего существования Киев был столицей Киевской Руси, подвергался неоднократным разрушительным набегам, его пытались завоевать монголо-татары, покорить Польско-Литовское государство. После объединения Украины и России, начиная с 1708 года, Киев стал центром Киевской губернии, в советский период – столицей УССР, а сейчас Киев является столицей Украины - независимого государства.

Герб города Киев

Не только киевляне любят и восхищаются своим родным городом. Практически каждый, кто хоть раз побывал в Киеве, сохранит о нем самые теплые воспоминания, и будет с воодушевлением рассказывать о крутых зелёных склонах Днепра; о панораме Киева с многочисленными золотыми куполами, о мостах через Днепр; о буйно цветущих каштанах на Крещатике и о колорите Андреевского спуска.

Хотелось бы, чтобы историческая часть Киева навсегда осталась нетронутой, чтобы сохранился тот дух живой истории, который ощущается в Софиевском соборе, в Михайловском соборе, на любой старинной мощёной улочке Киева. Стоя на Владимирской горке, можно вспомнить, что именно здесь более тысячи лет назад князь Владимир положил начало крещению Киевской Руси.

Остров белых каштанов, загадочный Киев,
Сердце Древней Руси и легенд колыбель,
Город Лыбиди, Щека, Хорива и Кия,
Город, где смотрит в небо святая София
И где летом слышна соловьиная трель....

Уникальность всех достопримечательностей и исторических памятников Киева в том, что они воспринимаются не как музейные экспонаты, мало связанные с реальностью, а как живые свидетели прошлого, непосредственные участники событий старины, которые без пафоса и высокомерия рассказывают нам свои истории.

В XVIII и XIX веках дворец был резиденцией генерал-губернаторов Киевской губернии. До 1917 года здание использовался в качестве киевской резиденции членов императорской семьи. После Великой Отечественной войны фасады дворца не подверглись значительным изменениям, а внутренние помещения были приспособлены для нужд правительственных и общественных организаций.

«Дом с химерами» или Дом Городецкого
Дом с химерами – это уникальный шедевр, построенный в стиле модерн вдохновленным фантазией киевским архитектором-романтиком В. Городецким. Это диковинное здание, декорированное фантастическими скульптурами различных зверей и химерами, будто снятыми с островерхих крыш парижского собора Нотр-Дам, можно смело назвать наиболее необычным киевским дворцом.

На крыше дома целыми рядами разместились добродушные жабы с нереидами, в стены особняка вмурованы головы антилоп и носорогов, а водопроводные трубы сделаны в виде слоновьих хоботов и змей. Возведенный на обрыве дом впечатляет еще и тем, что с передней стороны у него всего три этажа, а с обратной – шесть!

Дом Городецкого был возведен в 1901-1903 годах. Его внешнему виду полностью соответствуют его интерьеры с художественными росписями, мрамором, лепным декором, деревянной резьбой, инкрустацией. После революции 1917 года здание было национализировано и некоторое время использовалось в качестве жилого. В 1944 году его передали ЦК КПУ, а чиновники устроили здесь медицинское учреждение.

Также есть зал «тет-а-тет», где Президент Украины проводит встречи с глазу на глаз. Здесь есть помещения для брифингов и комната для проведения торжественных праздничных приемов.

Монумент Независимости Украины


Монумент Независимости Украины — памятник, посвящённый независимости Украины. Pасположен в центре Киева на Майдане Незалежности. Стилистически представляет собой смесь украинского барокко и ампира. Монумент воздвигнут в композиционном центре Площади Независимости в Киеве в честь 10-летия независимости Украины в 2001 г. Представляет собой 52-метровую колонну, увенчанную фигурой девушки (Берегини) в украинском национальном костюме с калиновой ветвью в руках. Общая высота — 62 метра.


Берегиня на Майдане в Киеве

Майдан Незалежності (Независимости) — центральная площадь Киева, которая в 2001 году была кардинально перестроена: было поставлено огромное количество памятников, фонтанов, а также различных скульптур.

Площадь Независимости


На другой стороне площади Незалежности построены 6 маленьких фонтанов круглой формы в два ряда, и были установлены 2 прозрачных павильона, которые являются входами в подземный фешенебельный торговый центр, где располагаются недешевые рестораны и бутики.



Печёрские ворота на площади Независимости


Печерские ворота иначе называют Лядскими, так как под стеклом этих ворот, установленных на площади Независимости, имеются остатки древнерусской Лядской Брамы. Однако на самом деле Печерские ворота являются копией Печерских ворот Киевской крепости 18 века, и никакого отнешния к Браме не имеют. Также, в отличие от подлинника, Печерские ворота увенчаны статуей архангела Михаила – святого покровителя Киева.

Архангел Михаил - покровитель Киева


Имя архангела Михаила тесно связано с Киевом. Он всегда был небесным покровителем Киевской земли и самого Киева. Есть даже легенда, что Михаил стоял на страже города при набеге татаро-монгол. Воины всегда просили благословения в монастыре святого Михаила.
При Богдане Хмельницком Михаил былл символом Войска Запорожского. Этот образ был изображен на первом гербе Киева (XVIII век). Он остался и на новом гербе. Как говорил наш Т.Шевченко, “З нами праведна сила Архистратига Михаїла”. Скульптура архангела Михаила украшает центральную площадь города – Майдан Незалежности.



Памятник Глобусу на площади Независимости


Один из ярких запоминающихся памятников Киева - Глобус на Майдане Незалежности, установленный перед портиком Главпочтамта. Посреди круглой площадки, выложенной булыжником, возвышается красивая колонна, которую венчает земной шар с парящими вокруг него голубями. Памятник очень красив и днем, и вечером.


Поклонный крест. На холме, расположенном рядом с Майданом Незалежности, произошли важные изменения. Как известно, ранее тяжело пострадал поклонный крест, установленный возле Октябрьского дворца в память о жертвах репрессий. Этот крест был завален при помощи бензопилы девицами из женского феминистского движения. Очень скоро крест был восстановлен на прежнем месте, потом укреплен металлом, и под крестом появились фигуры Богоматери и двух ангелочков.

Славяне, не попомните обид. Мы - русичи в отечестве едином.
На Киевской Руси майдан горит, а над Московской Русью тянет дымом.
Россию вновь таранит США, и Украину держат на заточке.
Народ один, а государства два, так легче нас разбить по одиночке.

Забудем про "хохла" и "маскаля", не гоже, братья, ввязываться в свару.
У нас один язык, одна земля, и нам войну расхлёбывать напару.
Майдан - визитка третьей мировой. И, оглушаясь югославским эхом,
урод с американской головой, срастается с Крещатиком и Рейхом...







Украина, помни – хмель пройдёт. Отрезвленье будет через год –
Средь могил и выжженных садов, средь развалин бывших городов.
Ты однажды выползешь на свет, обернёшься… А тебя уж нет...

Софийская площадь — одна из центральных и древнейших площадей Киева. На Софийской площади расположена колокольня Софийского собора и памятник Богдану Хмельницкому.
По преданию, на месте Софийской площади, которая была полем близ городских стен, Ярослав Мудрый в 1036 году разгромил печенегов, после чего построил на этом месте Собор святой Софии, а площадь перед ним назвал Софийской.

Памятник Богдану Хмельницкому – визитная карточка Киева


Памятник Богдану Хмельницкому является самым знаменитым памятником города, своеобразным символом Киева. Установлен он в честь гетмана Богдана Хмельницкого, который вошел в историю Украины как выдающийся полководец, государственный деятель.
Памятник Богдану Хмельницкому – сейчас является визитной карточкой Киева, расположен в самом центре Киева между двумя главными соборами города Михайловским и Софиевским.

Почтовая площадь


Почтовая площадь расположена на набережной Днепра. Свое название площадь носит с первой половины XVIII века, несмотря на то, что первая почтовая станция была сооружена здесь только в 1846 году. К 1814 году на площади была возведена церковь Рождества Христова, которая дала ей второе название — площадь Рождества. Оно использовалось в течение всего XIX столетия, пока в 1930-х годах церковь не была разрушена.

Михайловская площадь


В современном виде и размере площадь сформировалась в 1850-е годы, после того как пространство между Софийским и Михайловским соборами было разделено зданием Присутственных мест. Своё название площадь получила во время переименования улиц Киева 1869 года. Со временем на Михайловской площади появилось здание Первого реального училища, перед которым в 1911 году установили памятник княгине Ольге.

Памятник Княгине Ольге


На площади возле Михайловского собора расположена Дипломатическая академия Украины, а перед ней памятник княгине Ольге, Апостолу Андрею, Кириллу и Мефодию. Памятник был открыт 4 сентября 1911 года. Празднование проходило довольно скромно, так как в одной из больниц города умирал смертельно раненый в Национальной опере Украины Пётр Аркадьевич Столыпин.

Контрактовая площадь


Является одной из старейших площадей в Киеве, возникла ещё во времена Киевской Руси. После разрушения Верхнего города монголо-татарами и до XIX века оставалась центром города. Ранее называлась Александровской, Красной. Название «Контрактовая площадь» возникло из-за того, что купцы Киева заключали контракты именно на этой площади.

Памятник Основателям Киева


Памятник основателям Киева на Днепре является символом столицы Украины, олицетворяющим ее многолетнюю историю. Это событие было приурочено к 1500-летию со дня основания Киева.

Монумент Родина-мать в Киеве – своеобразный символ женского начала, силы духа украинского народа. Скульптура установлена на днепровских склонах, поэтому фигура Родины-матери видна даже из самых отдаленных точек Киева. Монумент является центром Национального музея истории Великой Отечественной войны 1941-1945 годов. Интересен тот факт, что высота монумента превышает высоту статуи Свободы в Америке.

Место скорби - Бабий Яр


Бабий Яр - место скорби о жертвах ужасающего геноцида, антисемитизма и Второй Мировой войны. Это ущелье стало братской могилой для тысяч людей, уничтоженных фашистами.


19 сентября 1941 года фашистские войска заняли Киев, а 10 дней спустя, 29 сентября, они начали в Бабьем Яре расстрел местного населения. Согласно немецким документам, в течение двух дней были расстреляны 33,771 евреев. Ущелье превратилось в место массового захоронения евреев, русских, украинцев, венгров, чехов, цыган, пленных, патриотов, умственно отсталых и больных людей. Фашисты не пощадили детей, стариков, беременных женщин. Согласно историческим хроникам, более 100,000 человек оказались погребены в землях, примыкающих к Бабьему Яру. Многие были похоронены заживо. Спаслось из Бабьего Яра 29 человек.

Философия жизни

Как уносятся птиц вереницы, поколенья уходят в отлет, —
Человечество то веселится, то отраву смертельную пьет.
То в тисках, то ломая оковы, точно русла стареющих рек,
Изменяются снова и снова и вселенная и человек....

Самед Вургун, (перевод Б.Пастернака)

Покинутий вогонь моїх пісень
І стримуваний пломінь засіяє;
Вночі запалений, горітиме удень.»

Памятник первому трамваю

Все привыкли к тому, что памятник – это что-то монументальное и очень-очень серьезное. Киевские улицы доказывают, что это всего лишь стереотип. В городе есть много необычных памятников, которые вызывают улыбку, а иногда и вовсе умиляют.

Вечный охотник у Золотых ворот


Почему, собственно, кот? Дело в том, что рядом с Золотыми Воротами расположен ресторан “Пантагрюэль”. У директора ресторана в середине 1990-х годов был кот по имени Пантюша. Серый, персидской породы. Говорят, что он был весьма популярен среди посетителей заведения. К сожалению, кот погиб во время пожара, задохнувшись от дыма… В его честь решили создать такой вот красивый памятник, и установить его напротив входа в ресторан.
Кота очень любят туристы. Уши, голова и хвост затерты и блестят, как новая копейка Как обычно, за них надо схватится, чтобы исполнилось желание.

"Балерина" на улице Стритенской


Памятник «Бабушка классическая» был открыт 30 августа 2011 года.Если неофициально, то и для поднятия настроения киевлянам и гостям столицы. Сама героиня памятника является символом типичной киевской бабушки 80-х годов. «Бабушка классическая» уже стала бессменной помощницей всех студентов университета имени Шевченко. Оказывается, для сдачи зачета или экзамена достаточно потереть зачеткой о бабушкину сумочку. А если учтиво посидеть рядом с ней, то весь день Вас не будет покидать удача.

ЗОЛОТЫЕ ВОРОТА

Золотые ворота в Киеве – памятник фортификационного строительства 12 века, один из немногих, которые сохранились до нашего времени. Сооружение поражало величием и неприступностью: над мощной боевой башней располагалась церковь Благовещения – это было очень символично для христианского города, ведь ворота служили главным въездом в Киев. Золотые ворота построили в 1164 году.

Андреевский спуск


это одна из самых красивых и известных улиц Киева. Основная застройка Андреевского спуска была выполнена на рубеже XIX и ХХ столетий. Здесь жили и работали многие известные учёные, писатели, композиторы, художники, скульпторы.


Сегодня Андреевский спуск называют киевским Монмартром — сюда приходят художники со своими произведениями на продажу, музыканты и артисты. Здесь можно купить украинские сувениры — вышиванки, расписную посуду, фигурки. Вдоль всей улицы много картинных галерей, художественных салонов. А каждый год на Андреевском спуске в День Киева проход вернисаж народных ремесел.


На Андреевском спуске (Андріївський узвівз) вернисаж - обычное дело. А в выходные и, особенно, в праздники - яблоку негде упасть. Зато здесь всегда интересно просто поглазеть и увидеть редкостные экземпляры всего чего душе угодно.



Владимирская горка


Памятник Святому Владимиру в Киеве над Днепром.
Каждый киевлянин знает Владимирскую горку, c ее склонов открывается великолепный вид на Днепр, Подол, Труханов остров и Дарницу. Памятник Святому Владимиру с крестом на Владимирской горке стал настоящим символом Киева.


Знаменитая ажурная беседка на Владимирской горке в Киеве появилась благодаря московскому купцу Василию Кокореву , миллионеру и нефтяному магнату. Под впечатлением от красот Киева, он в 1863 году пожертвовал киевским властям 100 рублей для обустройства беседки на верхнем обрыве горки. Деньги положили в банк на временное хранение и почему то забыли о них на много лет. А когда вспомнили, сумма за счет процентов выросла втрое. В результате вместо одной беседки, было сооружено целых 2 — одна на верхней обзорной площадке Владимирской горки, а вторая под Андреевской церковью. Верхняя «кокоревская» беседка стала любимым местом молодежных встреч и свиданий.

Парк Вечной Славы


Парк Вечной Славы в Киеве расположился на 18,3 гектарах, представляя великолепный ансамбль комплекса рукотворных памятников, вписанных в древний ландшафт склонов на берегу Днепра. Многоуровневый, с тремя видовыми площадками на левый берег Киева и видом на Киево- Печерскую Лавру, он расположился в исторической части Киева -Печерске, от Аскольдовой могилы до Лавры.


Памятник Леониду Быкову, олицетворяющий память обо всех погибших в годы Великой Отечественной войны летчиках, установлен в Киеве, неподалеку от аллеи Славы.



Мариинский парк


Мариинский парк появился по приказу императрицы Марии Александровны, жены Николая II. В 1874 году он был разбит на ее средства в английском стиле площадью 8,9 гектар. Позже парк изменил свой вид — здесь были высажены кустарники, декоративные виды деревьев, многие из которых сохранились и до наших дней. В те времена парк назывался Царским, лишь со временем он получил название Мариинский — в честь императрицы основательницы.


В Мариинском парке города Киева напротив Моста влюбленных есть скульптура под названием "История любви". Скульптура посвящена Луиджи Педутто, итальянскому военнопленному, и украинке Мокрине Юрзук, вывезенной на принудительные работы. Влюбленные познакомились в австрийском лагере для военнопленных, в 1943 году и были вместе 2 года... Потом разлука. Они встретились в программе "Жди меня" в 2004 году.

Isaac,... I don't think that there is any mention of Trump or the Trump campaign in the indictments. That being the case, I don't think that the Manafort trial tells us anything about the key accusations against Trump. And it's often overlooked that Manafort had experience in campaigns and conventions going back to 1976. I think that Manafort was even in contention to manage McCain's campaign in 2008. His political activities and career did not start in the Ukraine....it seems more likely that he saw an opening to cash in on his credentials and knowledge of American politics as an advisor to Yanukovych in the Ukraine.

Thus far what has been established/admitted to is that both parties investigate their opposition(s) using just about any method possible, including foreign governments. This reflects on the sorry state of affairs of US politics and if this or that sacred right can be brought to defend these actions, then no crime. However, beyond this, there are still questions to be answered and the American people have the right to know exactly what their leaders are all about. The Manafort trial(s) illustrate just how broad a perspective is taken when those working for our candidates get involved with foreign governments. Manafort, aside from his crimes, was instrumental in the establishing of power in Ukraine and at a later date instrumental in running a Presidential campaign. One would think that this requires complete investigation. Trump has mega million business dealings with Russian oligarchs, banks, ?politicians, admits that his campaign viewed the Russians as potentially helpful in clobbering Clinton, and is now President. One would think that this also requires complete investigation. Thus far, Tump may simply be a lying sack of oligarchical shame; perhaps there is more to this. That's why Mueller is doing his job, and getting results. It seems that the right's only argument, in defense of their champion is that he has this or that right to keep stuff that should be public knowledge from the people. Transparency is the key to taking back the country from the oligarchs. Trump has established himself, beyond a shadow of a doubt as the head American oligarch, representing the mega wealthy, corporations, and special interests. I am more than curious to discover what relationships our oligarch(s) have with the Russian oligarch(s).

New York Post, by Joe Tacopino Posted By: FlyRight- Thu, 09 50 2018 11:50:31 GMT An IRS agent revealed that Paul Manafort had at least $16 million in unreported taxable business income over four years while testifying during the former Trump campaign chairman’s trial for tax and bank fraud on Wednesday. IRS agent Michael Welch said in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, that Manafort received $15.5 million from Ukraine which he then used to pay for clothes, homes and landscaping between 2010 and 2014. Manafort also falsely classified another $1.5 million in income as a loan, Welch testified — while adding that Manafort never indicated he had foreign bank accounts on his tax returns.

OVERVIEW

This report compares current humanitarian crises based on their level of humanitarian access. Affected populations in more than 40 countries are not getting proper humanitarian assistance due to access constraints. Out of 44 countries included in the report, nearly half of them are currently facing critical humanitarian access constraints, with four countries (Eritrea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen) being considered as inaccessible. Moderate humanitarian access constraints are an issue in eight countries, and 15 face low humanitarian access constraints.

METHODOLOGY

Our methodology groups 9 variables under 3 dimensions:

  1. Access of humanitarian actors to affected population comprised of 4 variables:

• Impediments to entry
• Restriction of movement
• Interference with activities
• Violence against personnel

  1. Access of people in need to humanitarian aid comprised of 2 variables:

• Denial of needs
• Restriction of population’s access to aid

  1. Security and physical constraints comprised of 3 variables:

• Active hostilities
• UXO and mines
• Physical constraints Each indicator is given a score from 0 to 3, and marked with an X when there is an information gap identified.

The overall access score by country is ranked according to the following scale: 0 - No constraints 1 - Accessible with low constraints 2 - Accessible with moderate constraints 3 - Accessible with high constraints 4 - Nearly inaccessible 5 - Inaccessible We are providing analytical narratives for countries scored between level 3 to 5.


          This Is the Real, Americanized, Nazi-Dominated Ukraine      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Eric Zuesse — Strategic Review Aug 7, 2018
Click to enlarge
Such important reality as is shown in this picture is virtually unpublishable in mainstream US ‘news’media, because US ‘news’media need to deceive their public about the most important international realities — such as that the US imposed upon Ukraine a Nazi regime against Russia, and the US now lies to accuse Russia of doing what Russia must do in order to protect itself from the US nazi regime next-door.
This picture is among many which were originally published in the excellent 4 July 2018 article by Asa Winstanley at The Electronic Intifada. His article was headlined Israel is arming neo-Nazis in Ukraine. That article focuses upon Israel’s strong support for the racist-fascist (or ideologically nazi) Government of Ukraine. (Click onto it to see the documentation — it’s Israeli Nazis, against Russians, not against Jews, though they’re allied with ones that are against both, which is why the US did this — aiming to conquer ultimately Russia.)
Israel does this as part of the US-led coalition in support of the current racist-fascist Government of Ukraine, which Government was installed in a bloody coup that US President Barack Obama started planning by no later than 2011 and started operationalizing on 1 March 2013 and carried out in February 2014 under the cover of US State Department and CIA-generated anti-corruption mass demonstrations on Kiev’s Maidan square, but some of whose US-funded snipers have already gone public (though not in US ‘news’media) describing how they were hired to do it, and how they did it.
How, then, can anybody believe the US ‘news’media, which hide these clear realities, instead of ever having reported them to the duped American public?
The US Government’s anti-Russian sanctions, and its NATO exercises with US missiles and tanks on and near Russia’s borders are based upon the US government’s lies, not upon the truths that this photo represents and which will here be explained.
In US ‘news’media, the overthrow and replacement of Ukraine’s democratically elected government was the Maidan Revolution, or the 2014 Ukrainian revolution, not Obama’s coup in Ukraine. They lie blatantly, and they’ll never be truthful about their having done it. Thus, George Friedman, the founder and owner of the “private CIA” firm Stratfor, called it the most blatant coup in history,” but only when speaking to a Russian publication — and, then, when he got flak from the US regime for having said that, he denied he had said it. The lies are that mandatory.
The person at the center of this photo above is Andrei Biletsky (or “Beletsky”), whose Battalion is directly armed by US taxpayers (i.e., by the US Government). He has publicly stated the Battalion’s and his own ideology, as being “socialism” defined as “negation of democracy”; “racism” as being defined as “against Semites and the sub-humans they use”; and finally as being defined as affirmation of “imperialism” so as “to create a Third Empire [a Ukrainian Third Reich]”; and, here are just a few excerpts from his ideological statement, which is lifted from Hitler but with “Ukrainian” replacing “German”:
——
Ukrainian Social Nationalism
Ukrainian Nazi torch march. Click to enlarge
Ukrainian Nazi torch march. Click to enlarge
The main idea of mystical Social Nationalism is its creation, consisting not of piles of separate individuals united mechanistically into something called “Ukrainian” and the presence of Ukrainian passport, but instead a single National biological organism, which will consist of a new people — a physically, intellectually and spiritually more highly developed people. From the mass of individuals will thus come forth the nation, and the faint start of modern man: Superman.
Social Nationalism is based on a number of fundamental principles that clearly distinguish it from other right-wing movements. This triad is: socialism, racism, imperialism. 
  1. Socialism. We fight to create a harmonious national community. …
On the principle of socialism follows our complete negation of democracy and liberalism, which generate rozbytthya Nation isolated on gray power unit and a crowd of famous personalities (ochlocracy). Instead, we put forward the idea of national solidarity, the natural hierarchy and discipline, as the basis of our new society. Not a “democratic vote” crowd, who cannot give councils to their own life, much less to the life of the State, but instead natural selection of the best representatives of the Nation — born-leaders as Ukraine’s leaders. …
  1. Racism. All our nationalism is nothing — just a castle in the sand — without reliance on the foundation of blood Races. … If Ukrainian spirituality, culture and language are unique, it is only because our racial nature is unique. If Ukraine will become paradise on earth, it is only because our Race turned it so. 
Accordingly, treatment of our national body should start with racial purification of the Nation. … The historic mission of our Nation, a watershed in this century, is thus to lead the White peoples of the world in the final crusade for their survival. It is to lead the war against Semites and the sub-humans they use.
III. Imperialism. We change the slogans “Independent Ukraine,” “United Ukraine” and “Ukrainians,” by an imperial nation that has a long history. … The task of the present generation is to create a Third Empire [a Ukrainian Third Reich] — Great Ukraine. … Any living organism in nature seeks to expand, reproduce itself, increase its numbers. This law is universal. … Suspension means extinction in nature — death. The slowdown in population growth leads to biological death of Nations, the suspension of political expansion, and decline of the state. … If we are strong, we take what is ours by right and even more, we will build a superpower empire — Great Ukraine. … 
Social Nationalism raises to shield all old Ukrainian Aryan values forgotten in modern society. Only their recovery and implementation by a group of fanatical fighters can we lead to the final victory of European civilization in the world struggle. 
This stand is right, and cannot be otherwise!
Glory to Ukraine! 
Andrei Beletsky
——
The US-imposed regime has even perpetrated massacres against Ukrainians who speak Russian and insists upon conquering or else killing them all.
This is being supported by the taxpayers of both the US and Israel, as well as of Netherlands, Poland, and other US allies who have contributed to Beletsky’s Azov Battalion, and who are funding Ukraine’s Government, which Obama installed in 2014.
Here are America’s taxpayer-financed Ukrainian nazis teaching children in today’s Ukrainian public schools, and even honoring and displaying a picture of Adolf Hitler’s face. Barack Obama was a liberal, but he was also a secret racist (against Russians) fascist; and this Ukrainian Government would not exist if the prior, non-fascist and non-racist Government of Ukraine had not been overthrown and replaced by him.
For as long as America’s Democratic Party continues supporting and endorsing this Obama-installed nazi Government in Ukraine, America’s Republican Party will continue to be able to call this support by the US Government, of Nazism in our time, bipartisan — because it is — but bipartisan unity on an issue doesn’t mean that the policy is correct, nor even that it isn’t both racist and fascist: Nazi. It means merely that the media continue supporting it, instead of exposing it. They keep lying about it.
American ‘news’media keep saying that if Trump were to condemn and reject the government of Ukraine, he’d then be anti-American or even un-American. With rare exceptions, America’s media consistently support the US-installed Ukrainian regime. Because those exceptions are so rare, the American public, and the public in US-allied countries, also support it. They’ve been, and are, deceived.
The Hill newspaper once was courageous enough to post an exceptional article The reality of neo-Nazis in Ukraine is far from Kremlin propaganda in which the links documented that on a thoroughly bipartisan conservative-‘progressive’ basis, the US Congress is essentially united in support of the Obama-created nazi regime in Ukraine. That is a grim situation, but it’s undeniably true, and it remains hidden instead of reported in American ‘news’media.
And that’s why the dumb coward Trump continues Obama’s policies like this, instead of condemns and cancels them — it’s why he doesn’t blame Obama for having stolen Ukraine, instead of blaming Putin for having ‘stolen’ Crimea. If Trump really wanted to expose the lies of America’s ‘news’media, that’s the first of Obama’s hoaxes he would be exposing, directly to the American people, in a major address to the nation, accompanied with video clips showing the actual evidence, which would shock the nation and begin the real debate, which America’s aristocracy have been blocking.
With media like that, how can there ever be democracy in America? Will World War III be able to be avoided?
This article is being submitted to all US media, but it’s not likely to be published by many (if any).
So, please send this article along to all your friends, in order that this drop of truth, in the potentially explosive bucket of US ‘news’media lies about Russia, will have a chance to achieve some impact. The situation is basically similar about America’s attempt to take over Syria, but the more easily exposed lies are the ones about Ukraine; and the links here document those — which are sufficient to indicate the reality of today’s US Government: a Government which doesn’t actually represent the American people.
This is the nonfictional, historical, version of George Orwell’s fictional novel, 1984. It is happening, right now.

          Russia to open borders for HIV-positive migrants      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Government of the Russian Federation has resumed discussing the question of whether HIV-positive foreigners should be allowed to enter the country. For the time being, HIV-positive nationals of foreign states are allowed to stay in Russia only if they have close relatives here. Now the government considers an opportunity to lift all such restrictions. The relevant bill has been prepared by joint efforts of several agencies, including the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation and the Federal Medical and Biological Agency.Statistically, HIV is mostly found in nationals of Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Moldova and Tajikistan. Over the past 30 years, as many as 30,000 HIV-positive migrants have tried to enter Russia. A half of them - about 15,000 - wanted to enter Russia during the last few years. It is not the first time when the Russian government considers the issue. Eighteen months ago, Russia decided to deny entry even to those patients who had close relatives in Russia. In March, however, Rospotrebnadzor (Federal Agency for Health and Consumer Rights) re-introduced a number of exceptions. The department canceled the decision for the deportation of HIV-positive foreigners if they have close relatives in Russia, if they undergo treatment or if the activity of the virus remains low.

          Is It Springtime For Putin And Republicans?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

By now, practically everyone has seen that picture of the two guys at President Trump's weekend rally in Ohio wearing T-shirts that said: "I'd Rather be a Russian than a Democrat!"

Many have also seen the visuals of Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul hobnobbing in Moscow this week with members of the Russian Council, sometimes called his "counterparts." These included the chairman of the Council's foreign policy panel, Konstantin Kosachev, who happens to be under official U.S. sanction for his government's actions against our government.

But that didn't seem to bother Paul, who invited Kosachev and others to visit the U.S.A.

Indeed, this sanction and other tokens of disapproval imposed on Russian officials in the past year have not seemed to bother anyone very much in this new era of good feeling between Putin and Trump. Paul carried a hand-written note from Trump to Putin on his trip.

A recent Gallup Poll showed some 40 percent of Republicans, a plurality of the self-identified category, now regard Russia as an ally or at least as a country friendly to the United States. That is twice as many Republicans as expressed that view in 2104.

One need not go far to find enthusiasts at any Trump rally who say they have no problem with Russians helping elect or re-elect President Trump so long as he fulfills his campaign promises to Americans such as themselves. Who cares? Countries interfere with the internal business of other countries all the time.

All this is taking place nearly a month after Trump's joint appearance with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, last month in Helsinki. The furor over that performance had been expected to cool the administration's show of cozying up to the Kremlin, especially as Capitol Hill and American news media are still waiting to learn what transpired in the two leaders' two-hour tête-a-tête.

This week the U.S. did finally get around to issuing some new sanctions against the Russians for using a chemical agent (Novichok) to carry out an attack on foreign soil in violation of international law. The poisoning of a former Russian spy (Sergei Skripal) and his daughter in London in March had prompted widespread condemnation and sanctions from other countries.

But months went by between the determination of Russian guilt in that incident and the formal response from the Trump administration this week.

Trump also has grudgingly postponed a planned Washington visit by Putin, pushing it into the new year with the proviso that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election be finished first.

But the real end point of that probe is far from certain.

This week, in a related trial in federal court, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been shown to have extensive entanglements with Russians. These include debts to Oleg Deripaska, a member of Putin's inner circle of associates, who has sued him for $25 million.

How seriously should we take any of this? Some are asking whether Manafort's exposure to Russian pressure and influence might be a reflection of Trump's own. That spurs a defensive reaction from the presidents' staunchest supporters, such as the guys in the T-shirts, who may regard it all as a kind of joke. Or perhaps it was just their way of trolling the world or letting us know how much they disliked the Democrats. And if seeing that message was also a hoot for Putin, so be it.

Paul speaks for the "what's the big deal" school by saying Russia did nothing that other countries don't do "all the time." Like his father, the iconoclastic libertarian and frequent presidential candidate, Ron Paul, the Kentucky senator is quick to note the instances of U.S. interference in elections abroad.

For those who take their cues directly from Trump, all tales of Russian influence and interference are distractions at best and border on being a conspiracy against the Trump regime. It has been called a "coup in slow motion" by more than one commentator on the right.

Of course, many Republicans have not changed their view of Putin or his government. Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain continues to call Putin "a thug" and denounces his "vile attacks on democracy." The conventional view among congressional leaders is that Mueller's investigation of Russian interference should go forward and that Putin cannot be trusted.

A phalanx of Trump officials came to the White House briefing room last week to pledge a vigorous defense against Russian efforts to hack the 2018 midterm elections – efforts they acknowledged were very much underway.

Yet it is impossible to miss the shift in attitude toward at least some aspects of the Russian regime in key parts of the conservative coalition. This was presaged by an undercurrent of admiration for Putin that has existed for years in some quarters of the conservative blogosphere.

Sarah Palin, the outspoken party nominee for vice president in 2008, had this to say to Sean Hannity on Fox News in 2014: "Look, people are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates."

Palin at the time seemed mostly interested in her critique of Obama. That same year, a poll by the nonpartisan YouGov found only 10 percent of Republicans viewed the Soviet strongman favorably.

After all, just two years earlier, GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney had zinged the Russians as the biggest threat to our national security.

The implicit admiration Palin expressed for certain qualities perceived in Putin was present among some American conservatives — as it was in nationalist and populist elements of the political mix in other Western democracies — even before Trump's ascendance.

Still, it's hard to deny Trump gave the positive portrait of Putin a massive steroid shot with his kid gloves treatment of the Russian autocrat throughout the primary and electoral season. Another YouGov.com pol late in 2016 found the percentage of Republicans viewing Putin favorably had nearly quadrupled in two years to a stunning 37%.

Even more remarkable, perhaps, was the decline in those poll respondents who said they disapproved of Putin strongly. That response was chosen by an outright majority of Republicans (51%) in 2014 but by just 10% in late 2016.

It must be said that a corresponding change has overtaken many Democrats in the Trump era. Many who were all in favor of the famous "reset button" policy when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state in 2009 are now suddenly wary of the Kremlin and all its works. They see nothing but evil.

Part of that is experience. They have seen Putin seize Crimea and besiege parts of Eastern Ukraine. They remember the Dutch airliner that was shot down by a Russian missile in that region.

Still, the spectacle of Republicans defending Russian interests while Democrats attack, represents a role reversal as striking as any in this era of irony.

At bottom line, the idea of "getting along better" with Russia dates back to Mikhail Gorbachev's glasnost era and the efforts at "détente" before that. Even before the "Iron Curtain" was lifted, the idea of nuclear war had receded and the poles of the Cold War had seemed less diametrically opposed.

Henry Temple, also known as Lord Palmerston, was twice the British Prime Minister in the 1800s. But he may be best remembered in our time for these words: "We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow.".

These words are often quoted as a capsule of what we now call Realpolitik, an approach to foreign policy emphasizing a realistic assessment of each nation's selfish ends over any kind of idealism on the international stage.

By Palmerston's dictum, any nation we have fought as an enemy may become an ally and friend — but only for the interval that history dictates. In the first half of the 1900s, the U.S. fought two wars in Europe in an alliance against Germany that included Russia. Since then, we have been resisting the Russians and busily building back Germany as the anchor of Europe's own defenses.

A similar reversal has taken place in Asia, where we backed China and fought Japan in World War II, but have been close allies with Japan and antagonists of China for the last seven decades.

Palmer also said that "the law of nature is stronger than even the law of nations," adding that "the law of self-preservation" is the only law a nation needs appeal to for justification.

That dictum could apply as well to leading political parties and the individuals in them. None has permanent friends, only permanent interests. And for political parties by their nature, that permanent interest is in getting and holding power.

Republicans may see nothing wrong in collaborating with Putin, whatever his acts and whatever his aims, so long as it serves their own sense of grievances and policy preferences. And officeholders who fear Russia's intent are at least equally wary of the power of this president. They have seen how quickly he can hide his face and blot out the sun for an aspiring candidate or a familiar figure struggling to survive. To cross him, as has often been observed, is to invite defeat in the next party primary or isolation in the next party caucus meeting.

So if maintaining the current Republican hold on the White House and Congress means justifying and defending Donald Trump and his connections to Moscow, then that is the party's mission for today.

US Men's selection is going to be very much like Hunger Games. May the odds be ever in your favor. I can't even select a team at the moment because of the US depth as well as general inconsistency. Mikulak and Moldaeur are obviously the 1-2 punch, but it gets tricky from there. Does the selection committee take someone like Kimble who is either hit or miss 50% of the time, but can generate big numbers, or someone like Allan Bower who had modest scores on all events, but can be counted on to hit. With Russia, China, and Japan taking the medals, the US doesn't really have much of a chance for a medal, but could sneak in if one of those three have issues. However, the race for the 8 team final is more likely what the US has to keep in mind as the rest of the field is strong. France, Turkey, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Cyprus, Ukraine, Brazil are all able to compete for a team finals slot. In my opinion, the US team is more likely to miss team finals than they are to win a team medal. So if I were selecting the team, I would select the most consistent team possible to maximize chances at making team finals and getting much needed experience for 2019, when it will be crucial to qualify to Tokyo. It's so much easier to predict a WAG team!

          Украинец Запорожский не поделил турецкий пляж с русскими женщинами      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Украинский эксперт Сергей Запорожский опубликовал возмущенный пост о купании россиянок на пляже в Турции. Однако в Сети не поддержали его претензии - ФБА "Экономика сегодня".
Запорожский в Facebook описал эпизод своего отдыха в Турции. Он признался, что на протяжении всего отпуска не мог дождаться инцидента с "руссо туристо", чтобы рассказать о нем в соцсетях. Однако случай, с трудом тянущий на "скандал", представился только в последний день.
По словам украинца, на пляж, где он отдыхал, пришли две молодые женщины с детьми, которых он удивительным образом идентифицировал как россиянок. Отдыхающие заняли четыре лежака, после чего подошедшие охранники дали им понять, что эти места заняты (Запорожский использовал формулировку "квартет не из нашего села").
Однако затем произошло событие, до глубины души возмутившее украинского "эксперта". Вместо того, чтобы покинуть пляж по первому требованию, женщины отправились купаться в море, и вернулись за вещами только спустя 20 минут. Запорожский утверждает, что это было сделано демонстративно, чтобы показать себе и окружающим, что "русские не сдаются".
Подписчики Запорожского в Сети не поддержали претензии украинца. Авторы комментариев интересуются, каким образом "эксперт" опознал в женщинах россиянок (внятного объяснения сам Запорожский в ответах не дал). Также пользователи указывают на надуманность претензий украинца по поводу моря, поскольку большинство пляжей в Турции являются муниципальными, где плата взимается только за лежаки и зонты, передает Федеральное агентство новостей.
Отметим, с 2014 года украинцы нередко оказываются фигурантами скандалов при пересечении с россиянами в третьих странах. Причиной почти всегда оказывается политика. Так, весной экс-боевик т.н. АТО в Донбассе напал на ведущего Первого канала Артема Шейнина в итальянской Вероне. А в ноябре 2017 года украинка Дана Яровая отобрала у россиянина стул в египетском кафе, требуя от него назвать Крым украинским. Судя по всему, ожидавший "руссо туристо" Запорожский также мечтал о подобном "хайпе", но дождался лишь спорной ситуации с лежаками.

“That cult would never die till the stars came right again, and the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from His tomb to revive His subjects and resume His rule of earth. The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom. Meanwhile the cult, by appropriate rites, must keep alive the memory of those ancient ways and shadow forth the prophecy of their return.”

IMG_20180803_182537

Now this is living.

I am far outside of town, hidden somewhere along the Florida trail and dangling gleefully above freshly flooded soil. The rain here is warm, and what once was a forest now returns to swampland. Deer are not far away, and by dusk the air will be so thick with mosquitos they can drain your eyes of jelly. That’s not even mentioning the wild hogs, the two-headed birds, or even the strange lights that float across unsolid ground. Hairy, dangerous turf. But I’ve got plenty of spray, a damn fine tarp, bugnet, and an eighteen case worth of utility beer ready to be drunk. Drank. I’ll be drunk.

Swamplands always touch me in a certain way. They are not built for humans. Much like the high desert they are dangerous, uncharted, openly hostile to all manner of control. You do not walk into a marsh spanning miles and miles and expect it to do what you want.

Mosquitos for instance. They never go away. Where I’m from the first settlers had to wear full body gowns just to keep them at bay, smoke pots in front of every house to ward the beasts off. Cows actually used to choke on the clouds and die.

Swat all you want, kill one hundred. They couldn’t be intimidated.

Floridians learned to adapt, live on the terms of the mosquito. Most transplants and newcomers to the state refuse to do that. Instead they pretend these wild, untamed places no longer exist, remaining locked inside the world of Mickey Mouse and bumper-to-bumper traffic.

The American media is having a similar issue, trying to ignore the fact that the United States has entered ceasefire discussions with the Taliban.

“A meeting between a senior U.S. diplomat and Taliban representatives in Doha last week to discuss a possible ceasefire ended with ‘very positive signals’ and a decision to hold more meetings, people with knowledge of the talks said on Sunday.

The meeting between a delegation led by Alice Wells, deputy assistant secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, and Taliban representatives…

The move comes as the Afghan government and the United States have stepped up efforts to end the 17 year-war in Afghanistan following the unprecedented three-day truce during last month’s Eid al-Fitr holiday.”

Remember how Americans used to joke about their one-time-best-buds? Ignorant savages out in tents, no match for the supreme power of the greatest military on Earth? AK’s against drones, satellites against caves. It was the cultural trope the United States has built so many genocidal campaigns on: the idea that we, the smart and technically savvy, could easily wipe out the primitive forces unyielding to our might.

Remember just one month ago? How wrapped up this whole thing looked?

“As part of an announcement on a new South Asia Strategy last August, Trump said the U.S. would focus on a conditions-based approach rather than timeline-based. Pompeo said Monday that the U.S. had begun to see signs of success, touting results on the battlefield where the Taliban’s momentum was slowing and pointing to the progress of Afghan-led elections this fall.”

Odd thing to negotiate now with a plan that supposedly works. But we can tell that’s bullshit. In that same article last month it was noted that:

“Pompeo declined to characterize in what way the U.S. was already engaged with the Taliban but the administration has said in the past the U.S. will not have direct talks despite the Taliban’s request.

And yet this month?

“The meeting in Doha, where the Taliban maintains a political office, followed two earlier meetings between U.S. officials and Taliban representatives in recent months, the sources said.

…The talks had been held without the presence of Afghan government officials at the insistence of the Taliban.”

When you lie that blatantly, when a gonzo reporter currently eyeballing what appears to be some kind of prehistoric bird from a camping hammock in the middle of absolutely nowhere can catch this shit, you have to wonder just how bad are things really are.

The war is far from unsettled. Even the most unhinged, flag-waving, slack-jawed optimist admits the Taliban controls or contests 45 percent of Afghanistan’s districts and has successfully maintained free movement across the entire fucking country. At a cost of over $1 trillion the Taliban “now controls . . . more territory than at any point since the U.S.-led invasion.” It is in no danger of being defeated, none whatsoever, and the sheer fact the most expensive technological playthings can’t stop them should give would-be revolutionaries pause.

They have done the unthinkable. They have become the mosquito.

What’s the secret? How has the Taliban survived three armies, airstrikes, special forces teams, invasions, drone bombings, and heat-seeking missiles? How could people with not many more supplies than I currently have in this marsh have brought the United-fucking-States to the goddamn bargaining table? How have they done what every boot-worshipping liberal, every piss-stained pacifist, every party-worshipping dolt dead set on unions and dead organizing….how could they have achieved the military victory everybody said was impossible?

It can’t be their loathsome ideology. There’s tactics here, physical maneuvers. Something beyond ideology we should pay attention to.

So what is it?

Look Ma! Actual Military Tactics Instead of Religious Fantasies!

Seminole-Indian-War_11-24-15

(Seminole Warriors Ambushing Americans. Source)

Your average right-leaning whacko will assure you the Taliban is winning because we weren’t mean enough, that somehow if we just killed or mutilated enough corpses victory would be ours.

That kind of thinking failed us in Vietnam, and even failed the US as far back as the Seminole Wars.

Others attribute it simply to the terrain, as if the people living there had nothing to do with it. It also conveniently makes it appear the United States hasn’t so much been DEFEATED as simply been unable to unleash its full potential. If that sounds like an opinion slowly poured out of the halls of power into the mouthes of ignorant parrots, that’s because it is.

The Taliban victory is much deeper than any mere “advantage,” and it is THAT fact the United States does not want being widely known.

Afghanistan is a classic case of asymmetric warfare.

The key to success in Afghanistan involves insurgents hiding among the population and launching attacks on soft targets (Afghan state institutions; international NGOs) as well as hard targets (less frequently) such as US/NATO militaries. When the US/NATO seek to retaliate, they find themselves handicapped because it is hard for them to identify and separate the insurgents from the population where they find support and shelter. Combat is almost secondary to the insurgent. The goal is to draw the government forces into an over-reaction to “activate” latent insurgents:

“Ordinary civilians may turn into insurgents under the right circumstances. The transition decision rule for the civilian agents is that if a civilian is more angry than afraid, and if the civilian’s anger passes a threshold propensity to use violence, then this civilian becomes a latent insurgent. This is a civilian who is angry enough, and is not so afraid of the government, that they will attack a government target (a soldier) if given the opportunity.”

When the US military fights back and creates civilian casualties, or even simply puts the civilian population under more domination in the name of tighter security, the population is pushed to increase its support for the insurgents.

“The circumstance of low effectiveness and low accuracy might be seen as the nightmare scenario for most governments. In this case, soldiers are not effective at capturing insurgents, and they also cause widespread injury when they counterattack.”

This incredible feedback loop is damn near impossible to stop once it starts. “Even under best case assumptions,” writes The Department of Operations Research at the Naval Postgraduate School we show that the government cannot totally eradicate the insurgency by force. The best it can do is contain it at a certain fixed level.”

It’s easy to see why:

“One of the greatest small unit commanders and unconventional warfare experts in modern times, Richard Marcinko, described three things needed to win in combat: speed, surprise, and violence of action. When transferred to the strategic and operational levels, the insurgency possesses these attributes. The greatest advantages of the insurgency are:

Mobility: The refusal to stay in a static location negates technologically advanced weapons systems.

Initiative: The insurgency is able to choose the time and place of most of the battles they fight.

Surprise: Because the insurgents have the ability to choose the time and place of the fight, they can select moments when the opposition is weakest.

Camouflage: The insurgent does not wear a uniform. As the father of modern insurgency, Michael Collins, said: ‘Our uniform will be that of the man on the street and the peasant in the field.’ This makes distinguishing between friend and foe difficult for the opposition.

Unpredictability: A force that is unpredictable on a battlefield is dangerous. Field commanders train to fight conventional wars, in which both sides attempt to take and hold territory, the insurgent seeks destabilization of the opposition’s government, not land. Tactics designed to defeat a conventional army are useless against an enemy that doesn’t seek to hold territory.

Factional divides: In a conventional military setting, a force should function like a well-oiled machine and have clear command and control. Insurgencies typically operate with loose alliances between factions who follow a particular commander. Sometimes they work together, sometimes they don’t. Just when the opposition gains a feel for the tactics and strategy of an insurgent commander, a new one arises. This leads to unpredictable actions being taken by the various factions, which increases their overall effectiveness.”

This is wild shit, something everyone from Egoists to Maoists should be discussing in earnest. That last one is particularly intriguing: just imagine the idea that the bitter infighting on the Left could somehow be a tactical advantage. It’s almost too good to pass up.

But before we get out into the possibilities we should return to the Terror of the Gods.

You’re Goddamn Right This Shit Will Kill You

kidnapped

(Federal agents captured by Jalisco New Generation Cartel.
It uh…it did not go well for them)

Out here there are no hospitals. There can often be spotty cellular reception. If I get bit by one of the many venomous snakes in the area I am truly fucked. I will not make it back out to the car.

Death waits behind every corner.

Driving between Walmarts we’ve forgotten the Terror of the Gods, the idea that there are forces or things lurking out there in the murky water that can easily drag us down to drown.

That’s after, of course, they tear our arms off.

The victory of the Taliban is somewhat of a double-edged sword. Let’s look at the negative implications, the swamp lizard’s lurking in the shadows.

For one, I think we can use the success of the Taliban as a gigantic warning sign for any lefty dreams of some grand Red Republic. As I’ve covered elsewhere the United States is home to a large section of the population that has absolutely zero interest in living under whatever flavor of the week feels its closest to revolution.

So let’s say the DSA somehow manages to win all three branches of government. Hell, I’ll take it a step further: let’s say, by some cosmic miracle directly ordained by a strange and unknowable god, some Leninist revolt captures State power. Let’s say they even get a nice little New Red Army.

A few hours from where I am now, out on the St. John’s, wild folks with yellow eyes live in absolute defiance of the law. They are well armed, they live off the land, they are extremely violent, and will not hesitate to kill at the slightest drop of a hat. Fish and Wildlife officers give them a wide berth.

The United States has given up on them. They have already won their war. Those people are not going to come out of the woods and, let me assure you, they already hate most of you reading these words.

The resulting violence kicked off by them, or any of the fascist militias slowly capturing territory, is never going to end. It can be contained, but the newly minted Soviet of whatever is going to be bled dry by bombings, IED’s, snipers, intense urban combat. This is not WW2. These people will be motivated by blind hatred and ideology. There will be no grand fascist council to issue a stand down order or to negotiate with.

Any national army will find itself unable to compete against this kind of warfare. What’s the DSA going to do? The Leninists? Call Russia in to help you put down the rebellion, like in Syria? Maybe call China?

Sweet JESUS! Can you imagine how THAT would whip people up? Foreign troops rounding up citizens, performing house inspections? Shooting at them? Every prepper from the Atlantic to the Pacific would hole up and start killing anything that looked vaguely unfamiliar. The great American fantasy of repelling some “foreign” invader would be fulfilled, and the insurgents would line up to die en masse for near-orgasmic gratification.

Some areas might never come under control, effectively reducing the United States into a nuclear-armed Somalia. Or Ukraine. Or Venezuela. Once this shit pops off it does not stop and life is irrevocably altered.

Which is why perhaps we should step ahead of the curve.

Entropy is Your Friend! Surf the Tides of Instability!

Midday. Intense heat, though under the tarp I’m nice and cool. I feel like lying out in the sun with my mouth open, hoping a bird might come by and pick my teeth.

Things are different out here, much more alive. Invisible powers all the more clear. You can walk in certain places and feel your hair stand on end, natural vortexes and portals picked up by your skin. Shadows move that aren’t there. Spirits are as common, as tangible, as the mosquito hordes you’ll be running from. You learn much more is possible than might appear back in town.

The hint of death rises in the air. True. But there’s also this feeling…this sense that you stand just as much a chance of killing something as it might you. Cottonmouth’s at your feet can be obliterated with a shotgun, you wind up dreaming about cutting alligator throats and drinking the blood. Florida bestows her blessings on the most persistent and clever predators, and given the proper tools even we can find a home in her most inhospitable regions.

It’s about sheer, unfaltering zeal. The atavistic desire to be alive and remaining moving at all costs. Here, in the marshes, there is no creature immune to this. Even the most iconic.

Back in town with the traffic laws, and the strict lines between drinking and driving, authority and power seems…inescapable. Undefeatable. We look at the Golden Corral’s, the time clocks, the legions of tanks and drones and satellites and think that somehow we’ve come to a dead-end. That rebellion, armed and violent and In The Way of the Old Ones, is a long gone ancient cult.

That not dead which can eternal lie. We forget we too can become the vessel for the Terror of the Gods.

The times we live in our ruled by entropy. Everything is falling apart. Mars and Saturn rule the day and structures wash away. Humid air rots wood and if my skull falls in this mud it will be reduced to nothing.

This is not the time of national armies. Describing a “nightmare” for any government on planet Earth the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation doesn’t describe some vanguard or organized army but “fighting an urban counterinsurgency campaign, where insurgents have many places to hide, and where non-insurgent civilians are densely packed.”

We live in an era where the governments of the world are practically pissing themselves at the idea of an elemental chaos armed with guns roaming the streets; we could become that chaos. Many people have. Once a force seeks to dissolve, to discredit, to simply destroy the host organism and feed on the rotting corpse…there’s no stopping it. We can actually win a military conflict, provided we’re dedicated and smart enough. Our differing groups and sects can unite without ever having met. That tactic is working right now in Europe and South America as I write these words.

This new world might mean the death of the “revolution” as envisioned by Maoists, Leninists, and other card-carrying party members. This is not 1917. Nations are an old idea that is quickly becoming outdated. Fight against chaos and you’ll be torn to pieces like a cheap-ass trailer in Ft. Pierce during a category 5 hurricane.

But in an Egoist sense, a claimed zone of territory made lawless and effectively ungovernable, too chaotic for any one force to hold the upper hand…much promise in that. Disrupt. Discredit. Militias and communes defining themselves town by town, street by street, aligning and breaking apart as they see fit. No one person to corrupt, arrest, or even kill. Put that on a generational track. Such zones could become infection points, cancerous bulbs on the body politic spreading “no-go” zones and destabilization. Bring Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya home. Read shit like this and start putting it to use where you live. Carve out new lives, new dreams, from the rotting carcass of a continent-spanning “society” and never look back. As long as insurrectionists remain popular and willing to continue the fight until the last breath(as the Seminoles did) they’re guaranteed a chunk of territory.

But are we prepared for that?

Is the Left willing to sacrifice the United States for a free but chaotic territory across a few states? Could we study sniper tactics, small arms maintenance, and urban/rural survivalism right alongside economic and gender theory? Are we willing to selfishly demand our right to live as we see fit? Are we willing to struggle, fight, and even commit violence…for a decade? Two? How bad do we really want this?

Do we really, really want to win…and are we prepared to pivot towards what that might mean?

Difficult questions, ones I don’t have the answer for. We have nowhere near the training, or the infrastructure, or even the popular support we’d need anyway.

But we could. And that’s why we need to start thinking about it.

Because if we don’t someone else will. We have to come to terms with what combat, what military strategy really is in this day and age. Even if you refuse…you best be prepared. If the Taliban is any indication, your brand new Red Army is going to come home needing a lot of prosthetics and alot of therapy.

And they might never win.

All I know is, out here among the sawgrass, life is chaotic, beautiful, and supremely deadly. The civilized world with its rules, employers, prisons, and slums can’t penetrate the multi-pronged resistance of the bogs, swamps, and marshes.

Yes. The mosquito swarm. A million bites from a million different mouths, a cloud you can never fully remove from the land underneath them.

Much wisdom in that.

          Irres Kräftemessen der Armee: In Russland findet gerade eine bizarre Militär-Show statt      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Russland feiert seine Soldaten: ob hier bei der Militärparade am 9. Mai oder bei den Internationalen Armeespielen.

Am Mittwoch stand Biathlon auf dem Programm. Der russische Propagandesender „Russia Today“ sendete live. Wintersportfans aber verpassten nichts. Denn anstelle von Skiläufern mit Gewehren rollten bunt bemalte Panzer mit Kanonenrohren um die Wette.

Es ist ein bizarres Kräftemessen, das sich gerade in Russland abspielt. Zum vierten Mal lud der Kreml zu den Internationalen Armeespielen, einer Art Militär-Olympiade, ein. Nach russischen Angaben nehmen diesmal 32 Länder teil. Sie messen sich in 28 Wettbewerben in der Luft, zu Lande und zu Wasser, mit Kampfhubschraubern, Panzern — und Pfannen. Ja, auch die Feldköche haben ihren eigenen Wettbewerb.

Unter den diesjährigen Teilnehmern befinden sich treue russische Verbündete wie Weißrussland, Kasachstan und die Mongolei, aber auch potenzielle Konkurrenten wie China und Indien. Das syrische Assad-Regime, das sich zu Hause noch immer einen blutigen Bürgerkrieg liefert, macht ebenso mit wie das international geächtete Maduro-Regime in Venezuela. Selbst der traditionelle US-Alliierte Israel schickt eine Delegation nach Russland. Ein Staatenbündnis sagte dagegen mal wieder fast vollzählig ab: die Nato. Nur die russlandfreundliche Regierung in Griechenland sandte ein Team.

Russland fühlte sich in Enge getrieben

2015 rief der russische Verteidigungsminister Sergej Schoigu die Spiele ins Leben. Russland fühlte sich damals international zunehmend in die Enge getrieben. Gut ein Jahr vorher hatte sich das Land die ukrainische Halbinsel Krim einverleibt und begonnen, pro-russische Separatisten in der Ostukraine zu unterstützen. Die USA, Kanada und Europa hatten daraufhin Sanktionen verhängt.

Hier ein Zusammenschnitt der Armeespiele 2017:

Die Spiele kamen da dem Kreml gelegen. Die Regierung in Moskau konnte der Bevölkerung zeigen, dass sie gar nicht so isoliert dastehe in der Welt und dass das russische Militär für eine Konfrontation mit dem Westen gewappnet sei. Die Kriegsspiele, die Russland dann auch gewann, sollten einmal mehr beweisen: Die Zeit der militärischen Schwäche ist vorbei. Russland ist wieder wer.

Die Internationalen Armeespiele zeigen eindrucksvoll, wie sich Russland seitdem rehabilitiert hat. 2015 nahmen noch 17 Länder teil, 2016 waren es schon 22, ein Jahr später 28 und jetzt 32. Inzwischen ist Russland auch nicht mehr alleiniger Gastgeber. Mitunter führen China, Aserbaidschan und der Iran Wettbewerbe durch.

Auch dieses Jahr dürften die Kriegsspiele Wladimir Putin gelegen kommen. Russlands Präsident ist zu Hause wegen einer geplanten Rentenreform stark unter Druck gekommen. Ende Juli gingen Bürger in Moskau und anderswo zu Zehntausenden gegen die Regierungspläne auf die Straße. Da kann ein bisschen Kanonendonner nicht schaden.

Putin hat eine bewährte Methode

Putin greift damit auf eine bewährte Methode zurück. Nach fragwürdigen Parlaments- und Präsidentschaftswahlen geriet die Moskauer Regierung 2012 in die Defensive. Doch als Putins Soldaten in die Ukraine-Krise eingriffen, gingen die Zustimmungswerte des Kremlchefs rasant nach oben. Wenn es wirtschaftlich nicht läuft, muss eben das Militär Erinnerungen an frühere vermeintlich glorreiche Zeiten wecken.

Auch den 73. Jahrestag des Sieges über Nazi-Deutschland am 9. Mai beging der Präsident mit einer bombastischen Militärparade. „In Putins Russland dient ein überhöhter, makelloser und mit viel militärischem Pomp gefeierter Heldenmythos vom ,Sieg im Großen Vaterländischen Krieg [...] vor allem der Legitimation einer ungebrochenen imperialen Tradition und Einheit, was unter anderem der Konsolidierung der Gesellschaft in Zeiten gescheiterter ökonomischer Modernisierung dient“, sagte damals Russland-Experte Wilfried Jilge von der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik der „Bild“.

Lest auch: Russische Marine wollte Putin mit einer Parade beeindrucken — doch es kam zu einem peinlichen Zwischenfall

Nun hat die russische Bevölkerung wieder die Gelegenheit, stolz auf ihre Soldaten zu sein. Denn wieder läuft es für Russlands Soldaten ganz gut. Zudem kann sich Putin einmal mehr als großer Staatenlenker inszenieren. „Ich bin überzeugt, dass dieser Wettbewerb zur Entwicklung der internationalen militärischen und technischen Zusammenarbeit und zur Förderung des Militärdienstes beitragen wird", sagte er zu Beginn der Spiele.

Eigennütziger argumentierte das chinesische Verteidigungsministerium. „Die Teilnahme an den Internationalen Armeespielen ist ein wirkungsvoller Weg, um unsere Kampfkraft unter wirklich Gefechtsbedingungen zu verbessern“, teilte es vorab in einem Statement mit. Nach olympischem Friedensgeist klang das nicht. Eher nach Kampfansage.

          Manafort Trial, Day 7: GTFOH With That 'Embezzlement Deduction'!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Judge T.S. Ellis may be an irascible crank who calls himself "Caesar in my own Rome," but he sure knows how to keep a trial moving! With His Honor shouting "FOCUS SHARPLY" every 10 minutes, Paul Manafort's tax fuckery trial has been galloping along at a clip. Prosecutors are on-track to finish presenting evidence on Friday. Then, God willing and the creek don't rise, the jury will send that sorry sumbitch to jail to await his next trial in September. And we can stop thinking about his ridiculous ostrich jacket and his moronic PDFs and his tacky karaoke system for like two whole weeks. Gonna be sweeeeet!

But for now, let's try to wrap our heads around the argument Manafort's lawyer Kevin Downing started off with yesterday. See, when Paul Manafort was approached by the FBI in 2014, he said, Yes, Mr. Law Man, I did used to have some offshore accounts in Cyprus, but they're closed now. (Technically true, since he'd transferred his accounts to the Grenadines and put them under Konstantin Kilimnik's name.) Henceforth, ergo, propter hoc, Downing argued, it was just A ACCIDENT that he forgot to mention them to the IRS on his tax returns all those times.

No????

Okay, back to RICK GATES IS A LYING THIEVER WITH A WANDERING PEEN! WaPo reports,


The defense attorney pointed to about $3 million in transactions, from 2010 to 2014, that he has suggested represent money Gates embezzled from Manafort. He noted an extramarital affair that Gates admitted to Tuesday. Then he asked: Did Gates recall telling the special counsel's office "that you actually engaged in four extramarital affairs?"

The prosecutors immediately objected, and, after a lengthy bench conference, Downing just asked whether the money embezzled went to fund his SECRET LIFE. Which, Gates agreed, it did. Subtle, dude.

But once Gates finished getting kicked in the nuts by Manafort's lawyers, everything settled down like a normal tax fraud trial. Which is to say, it was BOOOOOOORING. Morgan Magionos, an FBI forensic accountant, walked the jury through two hours of charts and graphs showing how a little Ukrainian hryvnia makes its way from an oligarch's pocket to an account in Cyprus where it becomes a dollar. Then a grifty election fucker summons it via email, and the dollar makes the long journey to America and becomes ... whatever this is.

Seriously, what the hell is this?

Magionos highlighted the discrepancy between the $60 million Manafort was paid for his work in Ukraine and the $30 million he reported on his income tax returns. She was followed on the witness stand by IRS agent Michael Welch, who testified that Manafort failed to report at least $15 million of income, and that's taking at face value all his extremely creative "business expenses."

Welch said he also looked at the income that was never brought into the United States. He said he was "conservative" in what he allowed as possible business expenses — including 132,000 euros to a yacht company, $49,000 for an Italian villa rental, $45,000 for cosmetic dentistry and $19,800 for a riding academy — because he heard "no testimony" explaining their purpose.

But Kevin Downing was ready with a response to that one. And it was RICK GATES IS A LYING THIEVER WITH A WANDERING PEEN!

Under cross-examination, Kevin Downing raised questions about an "embezzlement deduction" Manafort might have been able to take or whether he might have been able to spread out reported income as a way to explain discrepancies. Welch testified those would be possibilities, but at the end of the day, it doesn't change his assessment that Manafort filed false tax returns and failed to report income.

And, Welch said, if one wanted to take an "embezzlement deduction" one would have to report the income to start with to even qualify.

Embezzlement deduction?!?!?!

Done! We are done with this grifty fucker and his bullshit defense. GO TO JAIL, PAUL MANAFORT. GO TO JAIL FOREVER.

           Восстанавливать парк локомотивов Украине придется российскими локомотивами      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Локомотивный парк ПАО «Укрзализныця» полностью изношен. Наиболее реалистичным сценарием обновления тягового подвижного состава (ТПС) станет перекупка российских локомотивов, считает эксперт Европейского железнодорожного агентства Роман Мюнге.«Бесконечно проводить капитальный ремонт локомотивов невозможно. Восстанавливать парк придется исключительно за счет приобретения ТПС. Украина уже покупает новые локомотивы российского производства у частных перевозчиков, – подчеркивает эксперт. – К примеру, несколько лет назад соответствующее предложение поступало в адрес одного из крупных российских железнодорожных операторов на приобретение магистрального тепловоза 2ТЭ116 по остаточной стоимости».Одну из основных причин нехватки ТПС на сети ПАО «Укрзализныця» Р. Мюнге видит в ограничении доступа Украины к Луганскому тепловозостроительному заводу.В свою очередь, руководитель экспертного направления компании «ЦТС-Консалтинг» Андрей Шкляр выделяет два перспективных сценария по выходу из кризиса:«В долгосрочной перспективе, в соответствии с обязательствами по соглашению об ассоциации с ЕС, Украина должна либерализировать рынок железнодорожных перевозок, в частности сектор локомотивной тяги. Таким образом, появятся частные компании, со своим ТПС. В краткосрочной перспективе ПАО «Укрзализныця» совместно с бизнес-сообществом прорабатывает программу по оптимизации операционной эффективности и восстановлению локомотивного парка», – пояснил А. Шкляр.Аналитики консалтинговой компании IMF group Ukraine, в своем июльском исследовании, утверждают, что транспортный комплекс страны может впасть в глубокий кризис к 2019–2020 гг., если старые локомотивы не будут срочно заменены на более новые. В противном случае Украина будет терять около 4,8% ВВП в год.РЖД-Партнер

          How Russia, Turkey, and Iran are Going to Avoid a Battle for Idlib      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Following up on: Sochi: Iran, Russia & Turkey Talk Syria. Refugee Returns & Idlib

Where I'd commented:
Finally, Idlib

Where there is this idea, being presented, that Syria will take Idlib back by force!
I do not think this is realistic. Or necessary.  Not at this time, anyway.
Considering their are three Astana partners involved in the process.
Here's hoping Idlib can be resolved diplomatically.
Going by some of the reports I've read today it looks as if Iran, Russia and Turkey are trying to AVOID a battle for Idlib.

If Syria were to simply rush in and battle for Idlib as some persons suggest, the US and their PKK allies would take advantage of the chaos that would surely result. And Rojova will extend ever closer to the Mediterranean. Which is what the US and Israel both want!

It's really much more beneficial for regional stability that the Astana partners work together to deal with the Idlib situation in a more measured, careful manner.  That's my opinion. And to my mind it makes much more sense for the actual preservation of Syrian sovereignty.


Link

The UN Senior Advisor for Syria Jan Egeland says Russia, Turkey, and Iran told UN humanitarian meeting that they would do their utmost to avoid a battle for Idlib.
Probably small de-escalation areas will be established, and full controlled humanitarian corridors will be set up.
By these actions, civilians will be supported with medical aid, water, and food.
Currently, Syrian AF leaflets messages calling to end the war and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is trying to negotiate with small opposing groups and villages throughout Idlib province.

I had left a comment and link to the Daily Mail regarding this news at Syper's- where far too many commenters seem to want a confusing, messy battle in Idlib- Which will only open the doors to the USrael regional remake. As stated above. Every opportunity provided, any misstep will be taken advantage of by the US/PKK parked in eastern Syria. It's what they are waiting for.

Here's another link to news of leaflets being dropped
"The warning came as government helicopters dropped leaflets over towns in Idlib’s eastern countryside urging people to surrender, an AFP correspondent said.
“The war is nearing an end … We are calling on you to join the local reconciliations, as many of our people in Syria did,” said the leaflets, which were stamped with the military’s seal.
Such surrender deals typically see rebels hand over territory to government troops in exchange for a halt to shelling, the return of state institutions, and a chance to either join regime forces or be bussed out of the area"
Back to Inside Syria Media 
In this regard, it should not be forgotten the success of the SAA in al-Suweida province as well as Assad’s amnesty to the opposing forces and terrorists.
Meanwhile, Advisor said the United Nations would ask Turkey to continue to open its borders to civilians if a battle broke out in Idlib.
Turkey asserts that it is working to keep Idlib a safe area for Syrians along with the northern countryside of Aleppo, and warns European countries of the possibility of massive waves of displacement towards them may not be able to stop them.
My hope is that Idlib is cleared in as orderly a fashion as possible all things considered.

          Chrystia Freeland Channels Trump’s Twitter “Diplomacy”- Revisiting Canada’s 15 Billion Dollar Saudi Arms Deal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Wonder how many people thought about the fact that Chrystia Freeland employed the Trump playbook method allegedly engaging in diplomacy for twits on twitter?

 As opposed to the reality of a twit's (a silly or foolish person) twittiness on twitter being a distraction from something else. 
Isn't it interesting that a twit is a silly or foolish person?
-Should that definition inform us all about the twitter reality?
-The concept behind twitter? 
-The reason for the creation of twitter?

Personally speaking. This row between Saudi Arabia and Canada is a smoke screen. I’m just not certain at this time what Canada’s virtue signalling government is hiding. Or if it's some attempt at PR?  I don’t think it’s to mask the 15 billion dollar arms deal. But, I’ll happily point out the hypocrisy of the Trudeau government's claim to support human rights


 Bloomberg
In an age when foreign policy is conducted increasingly by social media, Saudi Arabia’s reaction to a pair of Canadian tweets is a reminder that diplomacy by Twitter comes with a few risks.

Real foreign policy is not conducted via social media. But fodder for the dupe consumption is
The tweets, from Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and via her ministry’s main Twitter account, expressed concern over the latest arrests of social activists in Riyadh. In response, Saudi Arabia suspended diplomatic ties and new trade dealings with Canada, ordered the expulsion of Canada’s ambassador to Riyadh, and recalled its own envoy from Ottawa. The Saudi foreign ministry’s explanation for these measures is that the Canadian criticism was “an affront to the kingdom that requires a sharp response to prevent any party from attempting to meddle with Saudi sovereignty.”

    Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.
    — Chrystia Freeland (@cafreeland) August 2, 2018
This is hard to credit. ( Isn't it interesting when the media points out the tweet is hard to credit to Ms Freeland, but, were ok to credit everything to Bana in Syria, rather then her mother) Riyadh’s human-rights record routinely attracts criticism — which the authorities brush off just as routinely. Only last week the United Nations human-rights office said it was alarmed about the “seemingly arbitrary detentions” of activists, and called for their unconditional release. This was not met with anything like the fury evoked by the Canadian tweets.
One explanation for the selective Saudi outrage is Freeland’s high profile. Another is the prominence of the female activist named in the two tweets: Samar Badawi, one of the kingdom’s best known activists, and winner of the U.S. State Department’s 2012 International Women of Courage award. She is also the sister of Saudi Arabia’s most famous political dissident, Raif Badawi, who has been in jail since 2012. Freeland herself has appealed for Raif Badawi’s release (his wife and three children are Canadian citizens), only to be told that Canada should mind its own business.
So the minister can hardly have expected a different answer this time. Nor could she have been unmindful of the fact that in 2015, Saudi Arabia briefly recalled its ambassador to Stockholm when Sweden’s foreign minister cited Raif Badawi’s treatment in a broader criticism of Riyadh’s human-rights record. Freeland’s tweet was bound to get a strong reaction.
And then there are the personalities and political concerns of the two young leaders in Ottawa and Riyadh: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, widely known by his initials, MBS. “Both sides are playing politics here,” says Ali Shihabi, founder of the Arabia Foundation, a Washington think-tank. Trudeau, he argues, is “grand-standing and posturing on women’s rights” to compensate for an unpopular decision to persist with a $12 billion deal to sell Saudi Arabia armored personnel carriers. The Canadian criticism, unnecessarily public, certainly smacks a little of virtue-signaling.
Yes, the virtuous Trudeau government.. 
Sending sniper rifles to Ukraine. 

Trudeau's Gun Control Ideology Doesn't Apply to Ukraine: Sniper Rifles Ready to Go

Selling 15 billion dollars of weapons to Saudi Arabia.  Trudeau claimed these were just jeeps?
Not giving a hoot about a Canadian women imprisoned in Germany for an opinion.

Do everything you can to save  Monika  Schaefer from her ongoing unjust and immoral imprisonment. - Joseph Hickey
In a letter signed by executive director Joseph Hickey, the association calls on Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland to act immediately, starting with appointing a consular observer and direct contact for Schaefer.
Chrystia Freeland is a pretend human rights protector- Or as I say- Canada is for human rights when it's serves the NATO world order- And when it doesn't? Canada is as despotic as the rest.

CBC
The $15 billion agreement was given the further blessing of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal government in the spring of 2016 when it began issuing permits for the export of the combat vehicles.

Trudeau claimed ‘jeeps’ were being purchased

“The order also includes 119 LAV 6 vehicles of the "heavy assault" type, with powerful 105 millimetre canons affixed to their turrets, which were still under development at the time the documents were written.

Another 119 are configured as "anti-tank" vehicles and a further 119 are designated as "direct fire" support, with a two-man turret and 30 millimetre chain gun.”

It also involves a 14-year support program that covers ammunition, crew "training in Canada/Europe" and "embedded" maintenance, with a fleet management team in 13 workshops.

Re-examining arms exports

Last summer, images surfaced online that showed Canadian-made armoured vehicles, manufactured by another company, being used by the Saudi state in its long-running conflict against the Shiite population in Qatif, a restive portion of eastern Saudi Arabia.

One of the video clips also showed a light armoured vehicle, apparently manufactured by GDLS, operating in the region of Awamiyah.

The Liberal government launched an investigation, which ended with "no conclusive evidence that Canadian made vehicles were used in human rights violations."

Freeland has shown no appetite to revisit the Saudi deal.
 Back to Bloomberg:
Since Freeland’s first salvo on Twitter, most of the social-media fire has come from the Saudi side, from government agencies supporting the crown prince and private citizens making increasingly fevered threats of retaliation — including a bizarre campaign to support Quebecois independence. An education ministry spokesman tweeted that the government would relocate all Saudi students (estimates range from 7,000 to 15,000) currently studying in Canada. The Saudi state airline is suspending flights to and from Toronto.

Under normal circumstances, this would be a moment for the U.S. to intercede, and broker a peace between its close allies. But given President Donald Trump’s own hostility to Trudeau, and his admiration of MBS, Canada cannot realistically expect assistance from Washington. Indeed, it might be asking a lot for Trump to desist from joining the Twitter pile-on, with his own broadsides against Trudeau: the American president, like the Saudi prince, isn’t known for being gentle with allies.
Perhaps the US wants the Saudi's to break the big weapons deal with Canada and send business to US manufacturers?
For Riyadh and Ottawa, the only course is now to wait for the storm to pass, and then to begin the process of restoring relations the old-fashioned way, with quiet parleys. There’s a lesson for Freeland, and for diplomats everywhere: tweet less, talk more.
I'm in the camp, as mentioned that this is a smokescreen. And feel certain that this will quiet down and everything will go back to 'business as usual' for both regimes.

Bordeaux kom tidligt bagud men fik vendt kampen og vandt 3-1.Lukas Lerager måtte tage plads på udskiftningsbænken i første omgang, da Bordeaux torsdag aften mødte ukrainske Mariupol. Herfra kunne han se ukrainerne bringe sig foran efter bare syv minutter, men føringen holdt ikke længe. Efter 33 minutter scorede Gaetan Laborde nemlig til 1-1, og bare fire minutter senere gjorde han det også til 2-1, hvilket også var pausestillingen i kampen. Kort inde i anden halvleg gjorde 18-årige Aurelien Tchouameni det til 3-1 for Bordeaux, og dermed lignede det et fantastisk udgangspunkt for franskmændene inden returkampen i næste uge. Efter 78 minutter blev Lerager indskiftet, men kampen bød ikke på flere scoringer, og derfor vandt Bordeaux en sikker 3-1-sejr efter at være kommet bagud tidligt i kampen. Andetsteds var Patrick Pedersen i aktion for islandske Valur, der på udebane tabte 1-0 til Tiraspol. Tobias Thomsen sad på udskiftningsbænken hele kampen for Valur.

Тогда грузинские войска по приказу Саакашвили атаковали Российских миротворцев и хотели силой вернуть в состав Грузии Абхазию и Южную Осетию. После этих боев погибло много людей как с Российской так и Грузинской стороны, ну понятно что с грузинской стороны на порядки больше.

Борис Надеждин сравнил две войны, войну в Грузии и на Донбассе и сказал, что ни чего общего между ними нет. Поскольку в Грузию тогда вошла регулярная армия России с флагами, шевронами и всем прочим, на Донбассе же такого нет.

И в то время когда Надеждин рассказывал о войне в Грузии, постоянно в его речь влезала Янина Соколовская которая пыталась обвинить во всем Москву. Соколовская начала сетовать на то, что на Донбассе тоже регулярная армия России, хотя доказательств до сих пор ни кто не предоставил. Этим похоже она и взбесила Надеждина, который не сдержался и сказал » Зачем вас вообще сюда зовут?!» Так же он попросил не перебивать его, но Соколовской было все равно.

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 Streets of London 

"Streets of London" is a song written by Ralph McTell. It was first recorded for McTell's 1969 album Spiral Staircase but was not released in the United Kingdom as a single until 1974. It was his greatest commercial success, reaching number two in the UK singles chart, at one point selling 90,000 copies a day  and winning him the Ivor Novello Award and a Silver disc for record sales.
===
It translates well into a protest song against the senseless riots 2011. I love the song. I despise the rioters who hurt and maim the strugglers trying to get by, complaining that they lack educational opportunity or respect.



=== from 2017 ===
Some things should not happen, but they do. A gay marriage referendum could pilot electronic voting to make the process cheaper. Combine it with postal for those who cannot use internet. Make the internet vote verifiable, as opposed to secret, and all problems disappear. But even so, cost should not be an oppositional factor to gay marriage. Let people have their say. Let there be open debate. The ALP have tried to walk down both sides of the street on this issue. They have opposed gay marriage all along, but have claimed to support it. Only a conservative government can protect churches from litigation that same sex marriage would entail. At the moment, some churches will have to restrict marriages to only their members marrying other members. Some churches really want to marry gays. Terrorists want to kill gays. There is already civil union. I personally feel it is a terrible over reach that the state decides how religious institutions treat customs. I don't need government to applaud my bed partner. There are many things that are legal I will never do. 

On this day in history, in 48BC at the Battle of Pharsalus Julius Caeser comprehensively defeated Pompey. The battle had Caeser with 22000 weary veterans faced off against 45000 rested men. Pompey had the high ground and local support. Both formed three lines of men. Pompey's lines were ten men deep. A river (Enipius) was on one side and so Pompey and Caeser had their cavalry on the other side. Caeser short ranked his lines so as to place infantry in support of cavalry in a fourth line. Caeser's cavalry was smaller than Pompey, and when Pompey's cavalry ran through them, they met the fourth line and were crushed by close quarter pole arms. This allowed Caeser, leading his cavalry, to fall on the flank of Pompey's forces and routing them. Pompey fled, dressed as a peasant, and collected his gold before fleeing to Egypt. The Pharaoh executed Pompey and sent Caeser his head. That was a mistake, as Caeser had wanted to forgive Pompey and unify Rome. 

In 378 at the battle of Adrianople the Roman emperor Valens was killed fighting Visigoths who won the battle. It was a mighty turning point, and within a hundred years the empire would collapse. In 1173, the construction of what is now called the Leaning Tower of Pisa began. In 1483, mass was given for the opening of the Sistine Chapel.

It is Census night in Australia and the government is asking for information and nervous nellies are hand wringing in protest. The process is available online for most. Exceptions being GLB peoples who are required to submit paper versions as the online version doesn't accept their answers. Also, a tenant living in a family home should not be put in first, unless the entire document has to be bodgied. After my details were entered first, the online system believed the Landlord was the tenant and kept asking if his wife was my daughter. So we erased my details, and inputed my details last. I don't think I'm the wife's daughter, but in 99 years you will know if I made a mistake. Or maybe Wikileaks will know first. I am an evangelical Christian, a very fast growing movement who are not included in the census response list. Pentecostal is close, but 'Other' and then 'Christian' is the best response to allow statisticians to know I'm not Anglican, Catholic etc etc who would otherwise get funding. It is why my church is currently searching for a home for her three hundred or so members. I do a lot of volunteer work, and the census needs to know that too. Please don't feed garbage to the census. Particularly if you don't want funding allocated in the mistaken belief that global warming has eliminated people like you. The global warming movement employ hyperbole. Don't make it seem real. 

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

Correction to yesterday's post. Australian cricketers spent 4 months prior to the Ashes series practice with the Duke ball. However, the comments regarding the Australian team not playing with appropriate, practiced skill still stands. Only it isn't the coaches fault. Or the Captain. It was the players who somehow failed to play with skill, with the batting exceptions of Rogers, Smith and Warner. 

It is important to apologise and rectify mistakes when they are made. Andrew Bolt has apologised to Bronwyn Bishop for demanding she resign when the ALP prosecuting her case refuse to resign for worse errors of judgment. Expenses are a hard area to police. Bishop had behaved within the rules. But the media prosecuted her and excused the ALP, and continue to excuse the ALP. Tony Burke, who had no problem drowning people, so long as he could keep their names in a drawer on a post-it, does not seem aware of the hypocrisy of his position. Burke is willing to pay back $90 for a com car, but not the tens of thousands of dollars he has claimed for taking his children on holidays, business class. Burke can't raise the dead, but he might support a policy that works. 

Insiders interviewed Greens Leader Richard Di Natale but refused to challenge his obfuscations or lies. Di Natale claimed credit for opposing cuts to Education needed to ensure the provision of Education remains ongoing. Similarly he patted himself on the back for opposing a small fee of $7 for visiting a doctor, and a fund of $20 billion for science research. Doctors deserve the pay rise and health needs to be sustainable. It doesn't benefit poor people if Australia can no longer pay for health care or education.

US is dropping bombs on Iraq. This policy will be to oppose the militants whom have been successful because the Obama and Iran backed regime have divided the nation. Money has funded the militants directly from banks they have robbed. Chemical weapons from Saddam's armoury are in their grasp. Civilians are being slaughtered in substantial numbers on any pretext. Some militants are from the west. Ironically, Obama sought to aid these militants last year with his desire to bomb Syria. Obama wanted to bomb Syria but Russia said 'no.' So bombing Syria would have helped these militants, while bombing Iraq will, apparently, oppose the militants. It is pertinent that Obama's plan to bomb civilians coincides with Truman's vaporising 39000 at Nagasaki. Truman's targets weren't military. They were soft. One feels that Obama has similar targets. Meanwhile, Russia is acting proportionately in her diplomacy and it is rattling the media. Russia is applying sanctions against industry, but not all. The UN has demanded that Russia stop supplying Ukrainian separatists with weapons. However, the UN is taking no action to defend those separatists from Ukrainian aggression, which has been evident while Australia and Holland were trying to extract victims of MH17 recently. Obama has sided with Ukraine, which is an illegitimate government that dumped the elected government on a corruption pretext. Ukraine's illegitimate government sparked the crisis by threatening Russia's access to her own naval port. The one unifying element to all of it is Obama. Obama is all over the place policy wise, but never showing wisdom or competence. Today is the anniversary of Nixon resigning. If Obama must copy mistakes of the past, let it be that.

I am publishing a book called Bread of Life: January

Bread of Life is a daily bible quote with a layman's understanding of the meaning. I give one quote for each day, and also a series of personal stories illustrating key concepts eg Who is God? What is a miracle? Why is there tragedy?

January is the first of the anticipated year-long work of thirteen books. One for each month and the whole year. It costs to publish. It (Kindle version) should retail at about $2US online, but the paperback version would cost more, according to production cost.
If you have a heart for giving, I fundraise at gofund.me/27tkwuc
