*"Coming Soon: The Mother Of All Debt Ceiling Crises"* by David Stockman "While the Imperial City is frozen in the Second Coming of Comey, it doesn’t mean that the Washington spending machine is on pause. In fact, the Treasury’s cash balance yesterday stood at only $153 billion - down by $130 billion just since the tax season peak was reached on April 25th. Uncle Sam has been burning cash at a rate of $3.2 billion per calendar day since then and has no more room to borrow. That’s because the public debt ceiling is frozen at its March 15th level ($19.808 trillion) and the mavens at ... more »

"The Cruelest Joke Of All..."

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 12 hours ago
"The smallest decisions made had such profound repercussions. One ten-minute wait could save a life… or end it. One wrong turn down the right street or one seemingly unimportant conversation, and everything was changed. It wasn't right that each lifetime was defined, ruined, ended, and made by such seemingly innocuous details. A major life-threatening event should come with a flashing warning sign that either said ABANDON ALL HOPE or SAFETY AHEAD. It was the cruelest joke of all that no one could see the most vicious curves until they were over the edge, falling into the abyss belo... more »

The Iraqi forces (ISF) continued to have problems with their press releases about the Mosul battle. On June 9, the Federal Police announced that it had freed the Zinjali neighborhood in the center of the city.

Plainly, Sessions had a meeting with Ambassador Kislyak on September 8, 2016. The meeting was held in Sessions' office. No one denies that it happened. (Sessions denies that the campaign was discussed.) Were there other meetings? For all we know, there could have been a hundred, with the Pope in attendance each time! So far, though, we've seen no *evidence* of other meetings. Sessio... more »

Israel Cuts The Electricity Supply To Gaza

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 12 hours ago
*L.A. Times:* *Israel approves Palestinian move to pressure Hamas with electricity cuts* Israel has approved a request by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to cut by roughly a third the electricity it provides to the Gaza Strip. The move is aimed at undermining the Islamic militant group Hamas, which has controlled Gaza for the last decade. But the decision reached Sunday by Israel’s security Cabinet is stoking concern that it could trigger a humanitarian crisis among Gaza’s 2 million Palestinians and a new round of fighting between Hamas and Israel.

Liars Lying About Nearly Everything

Philip Giraldi at 13 hours ago
[image: undefined] The United States has been using lies to go to war since 1846, when Americans who believed in manifest destiny sought to expand to the Pacific Ocean at the expense of Mexico, acquiring by force of arms California and what were to become the southwestern states. In 1898 the US picked up the pieces of a dying Spanish Empire in a war that was driven by American imperialists and the yellow dog reporting of the Hearst Newspaper chain. And then came World War 1, World War 2, and Korea, all avoidable and all enabled by deliberate lying coming out of Washington. More rec... more »

This Is How Israel's Air Force Dominates the Middle East

Robert Farley at The National Interest - 13 hours ago
*Robert Farley* *Security, Middle East* *In its early years, Israel took what weapons it could from what buyers it could find. This meant that the IDF often operated with equipment of a variety of vintages, mostly secured from European producers. By the late 1950s, however, Israel had secured arms transfer relationships with several countries, most notably the United Kingdom and France. The relationship with France eventually blossomed, resulting in the transfer of high-technology military equipment, including Mirage fighters (and also significant technical assistance for Israel’... more »

How Russia Could Win a War in the Arctic

Robert Farley at The National Interest - 13 hours ago
*Robert Farley* *Security, * Over the past decade, nations bordering on the Arctic have found themselves with a big new security problem. The melting of the arctic ice has opened up shipping lanes and opportunities for the exploitation for undersea resources, but has also exposed vulnerabilities for countries that have long considered their northern frontier secure. It’s not surprising that Russia has prepared its military for arctic operations better than any other country.

*This is far too common today. We find in our governments, the media, our schools, health care facilities, in our places of worship, in our homes and in our playgrounds and sandboxes. Narcissism as well as other mental and emotional **imbalances are as an epidemic in these times we live in.* *Know the signs and avoid walking into this trap and once in the trap, use the truth spoken in calmness and certainly as your weapon. Do not allow others to demean you as a means of maintaining their own weakness, deceptions and lies.* © M.N. Hopkins *Below is a quote from a movie called, ... more »

White Wolf at White Wolf - 20 hours ago
Heartwarming footage has captured the emotional reunion between a dog and his 11-year-old owner after going missing for eight months. Jack had gone missing eight months but never gave up hope of finding him. A friend was able to find the dog in a gas station and brought him back to the family following a desperate search. In the video, which was filmed in Pergamino in the Argentinian province of Buenos Aires, the boy is pictured leaving the house after being called outside. When he sees his beloved pet for the first time since his disappearance he can barely believe his eyes. '... more »

Wyoming Town Hall replaces Presidential portraits with photo of Native American Chief

White Wolf at White Wolf - 20 hours ago
A Wyoming mayor’s decision to remove portraits of President and Vice President from the town hall and replace them with a picture of a Native American chief has some community members up in arms. “We aren’t required to display signs of respect ― our respect is earned, not demanded,” Muldoon said. Councilman Jim Stanford said hanging portraits of the president and vice president in town hall isn’t a longstanding tradition, and only began in the early 2000s. “I’ve always found it a bit strange to have a portrait of the ‘supreme leader’ hanging in the town hall,” Stanford said.

Kurdish Independence

Kurdish Flag At the conclusion of the Iraq War, I suggested that the US force Iraq into a partition arrangement to separate the nation into three regions once we'd won the war: - Kurdistan (Northern Iraq) - as a Kurdish homeland. - Central Iraq - For the Sunnis - Southern Iraq - For the Shiites Now I hear the wheels turning in your head, "Who are *YOU* to suggest such a dramatic move?" *If you're saying that*, you have a lot in common with the mandarins in the Bush Administration who said the same thing.

US Deploys Third Aircraft Carrier Toward North Korea

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
For those of you who are sleeping, the USA is deploying a massive force in place is preparation for the essential take-down of the North Korean government. This is the USA going on a war footing for real. Inasmuch as the present situation in the Korean Peninsula is one of a cease fire, instead of an actual treaty, there will be no international treaty to be broken should the USA temporarily suspend the cease fire agreement. At least that is how i read it and most certainly the North Koreans have happily broken the agreement itself multiple times. I also think that he has invit... more »

Expert says Humans are Aliens

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
We have considered and worked with several conjectures. The first is that mankind diverged slowly from the Chimp and/or its sister lineages into Modern Man or at the least into an upright primate lineage. All that appears difficult in terms of the time frames. The second is that we also got our start as an accidental hybrid between an upright primate female and a boar. This is not so unlikely as we might imagine as we are dealing with a survival instinct in the female to present in the face of instant death. A whole bunch of genetics and characteristics are fitted in. The t... more »

Worth contemplating. A good man sees his worthless wife in the after life and can do nothing for her except to forget. What i find missing so far in these documents is the presence of the possibility of repentance and forgiveness in the afterlife which we do know from other sources is also available. So hope is not banished in hell at all but merely rarely accessed. Perhaps that will change as we progrees. However, the lack of just that lends support to the plausible pre christian provenance of these scriptures. However skeptical we want to be, we are also been presented ... more »
