Snowden: Stop Putting So Much Faith (and Fear) in Presidents
by Jon Miltimore on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
Whistleblower ​and former NSA contractor Edward Snowden remains a fugitive at large, but that didn’t stop him from popping up and chiming in on the recent presidential election.Snowden, who in 2013 blew the lid on the NSA’s massive covert surveillance program, recently appeared on camera via livestream to talk about privacy in an event hosted by StartPage.Naturally the topic of Donald Trump came up a few times. At one point Snowden was asked “if the outcome [of the election] was better or worse for your case.” (I presume the question was referring to Snowden’s prospect of receiving a presidential pardon.)

The New Middle East After the ISIS Defeat
by Giancarlo Elia Valori on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
The Iraqi Security Forces, the « Golden Eagles » have pushed deeply into eastern Mosul, while the same Shiite Iraqi Forces and the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters operate both in the East and, especially, in the South of the peripheral area of the city.The operations of both corps take place after the Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service and the Ninth Division of the Iraqi Forces’ « cleaning » – particularly eastern Mosul, the ancient Kurdish capital city.ISIS responds to these operations with snipers, suicide bombings and, in some areas, heavy artillery so as to secure the centre of Mosul and react to the Iraqi and Peshmerga attacks.

US Elections Shockwaves Hit Europe
by Eric Margolis on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
Donald Trump’s startling and explosive victory has not only shaken America’s oligarchy to its core, it’s also sending shock waves across Europe and scaring the top hats off plutocrats and their tame politicians.The great Mark Twain wrote early in the 20th century: ‘if you don’t read newspapers you are uninformed. But if you do read them, you are misinformed.’ Amen.As with the 2003 war against Iraq, the US media totally dropped its mask of phony impartiality and became a cheerleader for the Clintons and their financial backers.Media was clearly revealed as a propaganda organ for the ruling elite. No wonder its disgusted clients are decamping to online sources or just ignoring the biased media.

Trump and Putin Begin Work on US-Russia Reset
by M K Bhadrakumar on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
The Russian President Vladimir Putin made the long-expected phone call to the US president-elect Donald Trump on Monday.It stands to reason that the presidential spokesman in the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, one of Putin’s closest aides, travelled to New York last week ostensibly to attend a world chess event, but principally to prepare the ground for the phone conversation on Monday.The agenda of such Russian-American conversations is usually agreed upon beforehand. The Kremlin readout (and the brief statement by Trump’s transition team in New York) gave a positive account of the phone conversation.

by Tolga Tanis on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
The retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, the former director of Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), who called Fethullah Gülen a “shady Islamic mullah” in an op-ed he wrote on the U.S. Election Day, is the subject of this article.He was appointed as a vice chairperson of Trump’s transition team last week. Now he assembles Trump’s national security team. And after Jan. 20, he is speculated to be Trump’s national security advisor or the Director of National Intelligence (DNI).The story of Flynn, who will be a key figure in Turkey- U.S. relations in the following period, is also a summary of how Trump was elected president.

Activists in Russian City Seek to Rename Street After Donald Trump
by RT on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
A group of residents of the central Russian city of Ryazan have launched a petition to rename the currently-named Bezbozhnaya (godless) Street after US President-elect Donald Trump.The petition has been placed on the change.org website. Its backers say that after the document collects enough signatures they will forward it to the city legislature.“The street name Godless itself contradicts Russian values and insults the feelings of believers. And Donald Trump who has recently won the presidential elections in the United States is a big friend of Russia and a protector of traditional values,” reads the message accompanying the petition.

Bulgaria & Moldova Switch From Hillary’s Euro-Atlantic Column
by Mark Almond on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
November 13th was as unlucky for stalwart backers of the foreign policy-line embodied by Hillary Clinton just as 8th November was for her domestic supporters. In both Bulgaria and Moldova, the voters rejected candidates for president who had been openly endorsed by Washington and Brussels.Having witnessed how small states with tiny electorates but vital Electoral College votes dealt body-blows to Hillary Clinton’s hopes of winning the US Presidency, it would be short-sighted and arrogant – as the Euro-Atlantic establishment has so often been – to dismiss voters in small East European states as irrelevant.

Whatever He Does Trump Shouldn’t Give Power to Insane Warmonger Bolton
by Daniel Larison on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
John Bolton is already agitating for Trump to repudiate the nuclear deal:One key step would be to abrogate the Iran nuclear deal in his first days in office. There will be considerable diplomacy required to explain this courageous but necessary decision, but the unambiguous signal it would send worldwide cannot be underestimated [bold mine-DL].

China’s Under-Construction Aircraft Carrier Isn’t the One to Worry About (It’s the One That Comes After)
by Robert Farley on Wed, Nov 16, 2016
Slowly but surely, China’s first indigenous carrier is coming into being. Laid down in 2015 with an expected launch date in 2017 or 2018, China’s second aircraft carrier may enter full service sometime around 2020. The lack of transparency around the project has spurred a tremendous degree of speculation, down to some very basic questions. As was the case with Liaoning (CV-16),China’s first carrier, analysts have a name problem; no one is quite sure what to call the new ship.

In 2017, Will Trump Remove Sanctions Against Russia?
by Alexei Topalov on Tue, Nov 15, 2016
Republican candidate Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. presidential polls could well benefit Russia. Many analysts had predicted a Trump presidency was preferable for the Russian establishment. After Trump won the presidential race, the first international leader to congratulate him was Russian President Vladimir Putin. »Russia is ready to do everything possible to return its relations with the U.S. to a stable trajectory, » said Putin.
