US Strikes Kill 100 Russian Fighters In Syria
According to reports, the body count by US-led coalition forces, is far greater than had been disclosed: U.S. forces reportedly killed “scores” of Russian contract soldiers in Syria last week “in what may be the deadliest clash between citizens of the former foes since the Cold War.” A U.S. official reports that “more than 200 mercenaries, mostly Russians fighting on behalf of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, died in a failed attack on a base and refinery held by U.S. and U.S.-backed forces in the oil-rich Deir Ezzor region” putting the death toll at about 100, with 200 to 300 injured. Vladimir Frolov, a former Russian diplomat and lawmaker who’s now an independent political analyst in Moscow, said the clash marked the first such armed exchange between the two powers since the Vietnam War.

Police to recommend Netanyahu be indicted for bribery on two charges
After a 14-month-long investigation, police are expected to announce on Tuesday that it found enough evidence to recommend the state’s prosecution to indict Netanyahu for bribery and breach of trust. In one charge, publisher Arnon “Noni” Mozes and Hollywood film producer Arnon Milchan, are alleged to have given Netanyahu expensive gifts as bribes. At this stage, the prosecution and Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit will examine the evidence that police collected throughout the investigations, and will later decide whether to actually indict the prime minister or not.

Comey Held Secret Obama White House Meeting Before The Inauguration
FBI Director James Comey held a secret Oval Office meeting with President Barack Obama two weeks before Trump’s inauguration and may have deliberately misled Congress about it. The topic of the meeting, which Comey never previously disclosed to Congress, was about potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. “President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office,” Rice wrote in an email written the day before the inauguration. The National Archives gave Grassley and Graham “classified and unclassified emails” about the meeting. (Source: dailycaller.com)


Trump Budget Funds Robert Mueller Through September 2019
The [Trump] budget projects that Mueller’s team will keep spending at its current rate of about $10 million per year in the next fiscal year, which starts in October. But White House attorney Ty Cobb said Monday that Trump’s team is not looking for Mueller’s office to shut down its operations entirely, merely to resolve the parts of its investigation that focus on Trump. Mueller’s investigation is now thought to have moved past allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government for which no real evidence appears to exist — and is said to focus on allegations of obstruction of justice.

A Racist Con-Man: Obama’s Portrait Artist Says “Kill Whitey” Is A Major Theme
Since Obama’s portrait was unveiled, many artists have expressed outrage because Kehinde Wiley is a terrible artist who rose to prominence in the art world because he is a racist gay black man. And if that weren’t enough: he doesn’t even paint his own work. New York magazine wrote a glowing piece covering Wiley in which he described one of his paintings, ”A tall, elegant black woman in a long blue dress, the canvas is enormous, eight feet by ten feet—calmly staring down the viewer. In one hand, she holds a knife. In the other, a cleanly severed brunette female head. “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing.” He also admits ‘Producing work in China cuts costs.’ ‘These days in Beijing he employs anywhere from four to ten workers, depending on the urgency.’ (Source: thegatewaypundit.com)


Mass Exodus Begins: 1000s Flee Venezuela’s Socialist Starvation
Massive numbers of Venezuelans have been driven from their homes by the dire financial crisis spurred by the disease that is socialism. Many are struggling to feed themselves and their only hope may be an exodus to Colombia. Truck drivers are subjected to horrific violence as looters target heavy goods vehicles carrying food in a desperate attempt to feed their families. The plunder is heaping more pain on battered businesses, raising questions about how much longer the starving Venezuelans can survive. Colombia believes that there are currently around 600,000 Venezuelans illegally residing in the country. That number is expected to rise, as Venezuela continues to crumble. (Source: zerohedge.com)


Vatican: China Best Example of Church’s Social Doctrine
Conservative Catholics are expressing shock at Pope Francis’ zeal in embracing the totalitarian government of China by first agreeing to replace underground church leaders with state-chosen hacks and now with a top Vatican official saying “those who best realize the social doctrine of the church are the Chinese.” Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, an Argentinian, is Pope Francis’ chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences stated that China is exercising global moral leadership in the defense of human dignity. Catholic author Paul Kengor points out that China accounts for half the world’s female suicides and still practices population control and forced abortion. (Source: wnd.com)


Opioid Crisis Has Cost One Trillion Dollars Since 2001
The greatest individual cost associated with the opioid epidemic, Altarum concluded, was lost productivity due to opioid fatalities—there were more than 42,000 such deaths in 2016. Costs of the epidemic doubled between 2011 and 2016, and are projected to continue to climb absent a “sustained national response.” “The average age at which opioid deaths are occurring—you’re looking at something in the late 30s or early 40s. As a result, you’re looking at people that are in the prime of the productive years of their lives,” said Corey Rhyan, a senior research analyst at Altarum, the healthcare nonprofit that provided the report.

Oxfam Faces Fresh Child Sex Abuse Allegations Among ‘Sex For Aid’ Claims
The survey of 120 staff across three countries found between 11 and 14 percent said they witnessed or experienced sexual assault. Former global head of safeguarding, Helen Evans, said “There was one of a woman being coerced to have sex in a humanitarian response by another aid worker, another case where a woman had been coerced to have sex in exchange for aid.” Oxfam has been battling accusations it covered up a scandal involving its aid workers in Haiti, which has put government funding at risk and threatens its global reputation.

It seems really strange to me that Russia is being so quiet and even denying that their soldiers were killed by U.S. led forces. I have always found that it is the quiet ones that you need to be aware of. I really don’t think that Putin will let this go without a retaliation.

Dreamed briefly last night that there had been a terror attack on Australia, of all places. Someone near me said it was “their 9-11”. (Almost sure it was Australia; name sort of faded upon waking.)
