Why Are We Attacking the Syrians Who Are Fighting ISIS?

Ron Paul at Peace and Prosperity - 15 hours ago
[image: undefined] Just when you thought our Syria policy could not get any worse, last week it did. The US military twice attacked Syrian government forces from a military base it illegally occupies inside Syria. According to the Pentagon, the attacks on Syrian government-backed forces were “defensive” because the Syrian fighters were approaching a US self-declared “de-confliction” zone inside Syria. The Syrian forces were pursuing ISIS in the area, but the US attacked anyway. The US is training yet another rebel group fighting from that base, located near the border of Iraq at al... more »

Not a sheep at Not a sheep - 19 hours ago
According to the Labour Party and their propaganda arm, the BBC, the DUP are socially conservative and so the Conservative party shouldn't be allying with them in order to form a government. Oddly the Labour Party had no such worries in 2010 when post the general election Gordon Brown was trying to keep his great clunking fist on the levers of power. 'Newly released emails to Hillary Clinton when she was US secretary of state show the Labour Party tried to win support from the Democratic Unionists. In a previously confidential briefing paper, US officials said then Labour leade... more »

Ah, life is good lately; can’t stop winning. Almost never recommend anybody, ‘cuz humans disappoint, but if I do, its winners. Remember that “*Erectus walks among us*” guy with his “*Out of Europe*” theory? Yep – that’s the one I recommended, the most despised of the low. I only recommend those who are near my level. Well, ok, that orange fat disappoint I endorsed for POTUS is obviously not anywhere near my level, but that’s another story – I knew he would win and I just love to “Told’yer so!” read more

Bulls-Eye On The Deep State

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
*[image: DSBAMMIELEAKS.jpg]* What is so bizarre about the whole Russian narrative is that it is impossible simply because prior to election day, one Donald Trump was citizen Trump. That he had a plausible shot at been president surely attracted Russian opportunists to sniff around anyone close and this is merely a given. Inasmuch as he was hardly in possession of secrets makes the possibility of even a error impossible. Thus no meaningful action plausibly exists here. What does exist is the disparate attempt of the losers after the election to produce a narrative to cover their ... more »

NASA’S First Warp Drive

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
I want you all to think about something. A lot of impossible technology was debuted through Star-trek back in the sixties. Little of what was then shown had very little description in the science fiction literature unless it was pretty obvious. Now Di-lithium crystals are been investigated as is a real warp drive. What i am saying is that the Star Trek universe is becoming plausible and it was impossible to imagine in 1965, but certainly possible to know in 1965 if you were briefed by an alien. Better yet is that Roddenberry had the right credentials. Essentially though we ... more »

Scientists Just Detected What Appears to Be a Whole New Layer in Earth's Mantle

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
We do think that the mantle could actually act somewhat like a conveyor belt and it that is a good analogy, then there should be mantle plates traveling along the underside and this seems to possibly confirm just that. All that we see suggests a strong equatorial band of direct activity. It could provide a plausible understanding the whole of our geological history and is well worth exploring. We are now reaching a critical mass of geological data gathering that may well lead to new revelations. Curiously my crustal shift conjecture is actually becoming far less tortuous as well... more »

Kolbrin - Book of Scrolls - Chpt 13 - Sacred Registers Pt 13 Hall of Judgement

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
This is a hall of judgement well described. None of this was ever described in the Hebrew bible but it was certainly part of the associated lore. When evaluating a body of spiritual work one can go two ways. One can assume vast interpolation of a known text or one can assume that the known text is an edited version. Or alternately one can frame it as a channeled work of more recent history. All these are difficult. The rhythm of the language is clearly tailored to an oral tradition of sharing. It is highly repetative in pattern but not in content and most of the material so ... more »

Monday Madness

LL at Virtual Mirage - 20 hours ago
*The Russians are Coming* The song remains the same with the talking points that the left hands out to its crew. Though at some point you need to ask yourself whether the "deep state" is still behind the whole mess. And if you answer yourself with a resounding "yes", you know that you're on the right track. I wish that the corrupt, elite, mainstream media would have put the same effort into investigating the murders that Hillary Clinton left in her wake, but that would be asking too much, wouldn't it. Last night I finished Season 5 of the Netflix series, "*House of Cards*". It doe... more »

Image: Kremlin. *Sandra Erwin, National Interest*: *The U.S. Army's Answer to Russia's Growing Military Might: More Missiles and Munitions* An eye-opening item in the 2018 defense budget request is the serious money that the U.S. Army is pumping into its arsenal of high-tech missiles and munitions. The justification is simple: Army leaders fear they have insufficient firepower to go head to head against Russia if war broke out in Eastern Europe. They want to ramp up production, and soon. They are asking for $3 billion worth of missiles and precision-guided munitions in the 2018 ... more »

*Alexey Kovalev, Wired:* *How Putin keeps the internet under state control* State-sanctioned trolling ensures online sentiment remains safely in Putin's grip. Before Facebook and its powerful local competitors VKontakte and Odnoklassniki arrived, the blogging platform of choice for the web-savvy minority of Russians was LiveJournal, then owned by US-based company Danga Interactive.
