Still Absolutely No Evidence of Widely Reported Massacre of 82 Aleppo Civilians

by Adam Hill on Mon, Dec 19, 2016
Guess what, there is still not a shred of evidence that the supposed Aleppo massacre of 82 innocent civilians widely reported in the western press last week actually took place.Funny how last Tuesday we even had precise numbers. 82 civilians, 58 men, 11 women and 13 children. Somebody was able to count them. Yet despite of how common smartphones are in Syria that somebody has not been able to snap a single photo of any of the bodies?

by Enrico Braun on Mon, Dec 19, 2016

by Adam Hill on Mon, Dec 19, 2016

The interview largely centered on the question of how has Russia’s intervention in Syria affected Israel’s security and freedom of action in the region.Firstly the unnamed official insists that Russia and Israel maintain a positive relationship in the region:

Fellow Progressives: Relax About Trump and Put Down Your Pitchforks!

by Gilbert Doctorow on Mon, Dec 19, 2016
These days I watch and hear the great Angst among friends and acquaintances that:1) the US presidential election will be stolen by a putsch on Monday, 19 December, when the Electoral College casts the definitive votes affirming the victory of Donald Trump. This feared putsch has been engineered by our War Party with the CIA secret report on Russian hacking, so much in the news this past week, as their vehicleor2) the election will be stolen when Tillerson’s nomination for Secretary of State is denied in the Senate and Donald is de-fanged by the deep state

A Christian Christmas in Snowy Iran

by Dr. William Wedin on Mon, Dec 19, 2016
The author is a licensed clinical psychologist and long-time human rights activist who lives and practices in New York City.Yep. That’s Iran. Tehran, Iran. The Hub of Human Evil. According to  the American mass media, anyway. Snowy Tehran on a peaceful winter day. Makes you think of Boulder, don’t it? Surrounded by snow-covered mountains? Those are the Alborz Mountains. And they are higher than the Rockies. They are the highest peaks in Asia west of the Himalayas, in fact – with skiing on the upper slopes all year round.

Trollin’ USA: Russia Allows California Independence Movement Office in Moscow

by Mark Nicholas on Mon, Dec 19, 2016
Pro-secessionist, or « separatist »activities are frowned by the Russian authorities. They are a good way of attracting attention by the FSB and if coupled with calls for unilateral action getting oneself into legal trouble. Nonetheless, Russia would not be the only state in the world that occasionally indulges in a little bit hypocrisy — especially when the outcome is this hilarious (and harmless).

by Dean Parker on Mon, Dec 19, 2016
If the Russian ever plan on pouring through the Fulda Gap and making a run for the ports on the English Channel they better think twice now!

Electoral College Members Duped by Russian Hacker Hysteria

by William Dunkerley on Sun, Dec 18, 2016
The minds of some Electoral College members have apparently been affected by the irrational Russian hacker hysteria. Eighty of them signed a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. They asserted that they « require a briefing on all investigative findings » on the Russia issue.According to Politico, Hillary Clinton’s campaign said it is supporting the electors’ requirement.However, recognizing that these electors are in no position to « require » any such briefing, Clapper rejected their preposterous request outright. The Washington Examiner reported, « No intel briefing for Electoral College. »
