COMEY: DOSSIER WAS UNVERIFIED BEFORE AND AFTER FBI USED IT TO OBTAIN SPY WARRANTS

Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress Friday that the FBI had not verified the Steele dossier prior to relying on the salacious document to obtain spy warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

According to a transcript of Comey’s testimony released on Saturday, the former FBI chief also asserted that it was “not necessary” for the FBI to assess the sources that dossier author Christopher Steele used to compile his report, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign.

“I think I’ve dealt with warrants where you just identify that your primary [confidential informant], or primary source, has subsources, and so long as the court is aware of that phenomenon and that you’re speaking to the reliability of the primary source, to my mind, that’s a totally legit warrant application,” he said.

OCASIO-CORTEZ SPOX REFUSES TO DIVULGE WHERE SHE STANDS ON BDS MOVEMENT

A spokesperson for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to share the incoming congresswoman’s stance on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement when asked on Friday.

The official BDS website describes the movement as one trying to uphold “the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.”

Conversely, many Jewish organizations view the movement through a lens of anti-Semitism. The Anti-Defamation League says that the BDS movement “rejects Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state” and “is the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence.”

Trump Family Is Worse Than Al Capone’s Criminal Empire, Says Democratic Rep Steve Cohen

Tennessee Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen said President Donald Trump and his family make gangsters Al Capone and Frank Nitti like “good guys.”

“It’s a criminal enterprise that he and his family have been engaged in, to run for president and once they got the presidency they monetized it,” Cohen said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Weekends with Alicia Witt.” “They’ve done it at the Trump Tower. They’ve done it at the Trump hotels. They’ve done it with the Saudis.”

Keep It In The Ground Activists Stormed Trump Administration’s Event At UN Meeting

Environmental activists took over a pro-fossil fuel event at the United Nations climate conference, storming onto the stage and chanting “keep it in the ground.”

The Trump administration is maintaining a presence in the weeklong climate conference that’s being held in Katowice, Poland this year. While the conference centers around how to transition to clean energy and reduce the world’s green house gas emissions, the U.S. delegation has used it as an opportunity to extoll the benefits of fossil fuels.

The U.S. government hosted a panel on Monday titled “U.S. Innovative Technologies Spur Economic Dynamism.” The event was intended to “showcase ways to use fossil fuels as cleanly and efficiently as possible, as well as the use of emission-free nuclear energy,” according to a statement from the State Department.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Emission-free nuclear energy?!? What do you call all that radioactive waste?

Ayers Declines Chief of Staff Job, Trump Reportedly Considering Mark Meadows

Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff Nick Ayers reportedly declined to take on the same role with the President, opening the door up for consideration of other candidates, including Rep. Mark Meadows.

Ayers, according to the Wall Street Journal, had been discussing terms of employment as President Trump’s chief of staff, but later divulged on social media that he was departing the White House at year’s end.

The position itself opened up when Trump’s current COS, John Kelly, was expected to announce his resignation also by year’s end. Kelly had been involved in a high-profile clash with First Lady Melania Trump and is allegedly not on speaking terms with the President.

FLASHBACK - Truth and Fiction in Elie Wiesel’s “Night”

Though Wiesel offers himself as a paragon of moral virtue, the truth is somewhat seamier. As detailed in this myth-shattering piece by Alexander Cockburn from the February 2006 print edition of CounterPunch, Wiesel assiduously campaigned for the Nobel Prize and has for decades tried to pass off his short book “Night” as a true account–a “testimony” in his words– of his experiences at Auschwitz, even though key scenes in the book have been exposed as fiction.

Russia delivers 3 more RD-180 space rocket engines to US

Russia’s Energomash Research and Production Association (the manufacturer of space rocket engines) has transferred another batch of three RD-180 engines to the United States for their use on US Atlas launch vehicles, the Energomash press office reported on Monday. "Three RD-180 engines have been delivered to the American customers. Representatives of Pratt&Whitney, United Launch Alliance and RD AMROSS have signed technical certificates on the engines," the press office said in a statement. This has been the third acceptance since the beginning of the year, Energomash said. Four RD-180 engines were transferred to the US customers in April and four more in October, the statement says. As NASA Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations William Gerstenmaier told TASS earlier, the US space agency intends to further use Russian-made RD-180 engines on its Atlas carrier rockets.

Russia tests new telemetry system during manned Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft’s launch

The Astra-06 apparatus developed by specialists of Russian Space Systems (RSS) was used for the first time as additional telemetric equipment aboard the manned Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on December 3, the company’s press office reported on Monday. "During the spacecraft’s flight, the Astra was undergoing flight tests, measuring quickly changing parameters. After the tests are over and its performance characteristics are confirmed, the new system is expected to be used aboard promising spaceships," the press office said in a statement. The Astra system is maximally adapted for the telemetric image (telemetric data package) requirements while its modular configuration gives the system extra flexibility for mounting it on existing and future launch vehicles. The system’s universal nature stems from the technology of its assembly from modules, the statement says. "The Astra’s design allows installing it aboard carrier rockets and other space vehicles.

Flight to Mars to cut cosmonauts’ lifespan by 2.5 years, says report. Cosmonauts will use special water during long space missions

The space radiation effect during an inter-planetary flight to the Red Planet will reduce the cosmonauts’ lifespan by 2.5 years, according to the materials released at the 17th conference on space biology and medicine in Moscow on Monday. "For a two-year length of the expedition’s flight to Mars and back, the aggregate radiation risk during the cosmonauts’ lifespan irrespective of their age under the RR [radiation risk] protection of 20 g/sq. cm will measure 7.5%, while the average upcoming lifespan will decrease by 2.5 years," the report says.

Our campaign in the European Parliament elections will be based, among other things, on the results [of these negotiations]," Kramp-Karrenbauer said in an interview with the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Claims Stopping Climate Change Will End Racism

Since becoming the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, millennial "Democratic Socialist" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has repeatedly demonstrated her tenuous grasp on economics, statistics and basic civics in a seemingly endless stream of gaffes.

And just when you thought she'd never be able to top that time she insisted that the unemployment rate is so low because everybody is working two jobs (that's not how that works), or the time she insisted that "predatory" health insurance companies should pay for the funerals of people who were denied coverage (inadvertently implying that her "Medicare-for-all" plan would stop people from dying), the self-styled "champion of the working class" has handed her conservative critics another gift.

Shortly after she threatened to use her subpoena power to harass Donald Trump Jr. after he tweeted an 'mean meme' making fun of Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow socialists (provoking an uproar on twitter)...

Drivers call for protests at City Hall amid fury over Sadiq Khan's 'ultra-low emission zone' covering the whole of London that will charge motorists with cars that are just three years old £12.50 a day 'and raise SIX times more than the congestion charge'

Motorists have reacted with fury at a new London pollution charge covering large swathes of London which is expected to hit one million drivers.

Mayor Sadiq Khan confirmed that ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) - being introduced in Central London next year - will stretch to cover an area surrounded by the North and South Circular roads from October 2021.

The £12.50 per day fee means cash-strapped Transport for London will collect up to £1.5billion a year - six times as much as the £230million from the congestion charge.

Ron Unz Discusses His Recent Game-Changing, Taboo-Busting Articles About Jewish Power and History

I’ve recently taken a bit of a break after three long months of writing in my American Pravda series, during which I finally got around to publishing many of the very surprising discoveries I had made over the last fifteen-odd years. That total came to more than 90,000 words of text, and required me to read or (mostly) reread some 40-50 books, so I was quite exhausted by the end of the cycle.

However, the results were quite encouraging, with my small series of articles generating nearly half a million page views of readership over that short period, while helping to drive our small webzine to record-setting traffic. Even more remarkably, those articles provoked nearly 13,000 comments, totaling an astonishing 1.8 million words of text. Indeed, the three most heavily-commented articles in our webzine’s history came from that group, as did five of our seven most widely-read pieces from the last six months.

France's Yellow Vest movement strikes a victory for working people across the EU

Though the Gilet Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement in France may appear to have erupted from nowhere, its arrival has been a long time coming.
“Men make their own history,” Karl Marx reminds us, “but not of their own free will; not under circumstances they themselves have chosen but under the given and inherited circumstances with which they are directly confronted.”

And confronting the thousands of Yellow Vest protesters who’ve been laying siege to central Paris these past few weeks – along with millions of ordinary working people across France – have been and are the deepening consequences of a broken and defunct neoliberal economic model, compounded by the refusal of its prime movers, chief among them French President Emmanuel Macron, to wake up to the deepening dystopia fashioned in its name.

Five Eyes Against Huawei

Washington has asked Ottawa to arrest Meng Wanzhou and to extradite her. This young woman is the financial director and daughter of the founder of Huawei, the Chinese Telecom Giant. She was arrested on 6 December in Canada.

The motive for the war undertaken by Washington against Huawei is deep-rooted and spurious are the justifications.

The heart of the problem is that the Chinese firm uses a system of encryption that prevents the NSA from intercepting its communications. A number of governments and secret services in the non-Western world have begun to equip themselves exclusively with Huawei materials, and are doing so to protect the confidentiality of their communications.

Behind the US attack on Chinese Smartphones

After having imposed heavy taxes on Chinese merchandise - 250 billion dollars - President Trump, at the G-20, accepted a « truce » by postponing further measures, mainly because the US economy has been struck by the Chinese retaliation.

But apart from these commercial considerations, there are also some strategic reasons. Under pressure from the Pentagon and the Intelligence agencies, the USA forbade the use of Smartphones and telecommunications infrastructures from the Chinese company Huawei, warning that they may potentially be used for espionage, and pressured their allies to do the same.

Black Sea clash not stopping Nord Stream 2

Izvestia: Kerch Strait incident not hindering progression of Nord Stream 2. The construction of Nord Stream 2 is being carried out strictly according to its approved schedule, the company’s official representative operating the project Nord Stream 2 AG Jens Muller told Izvestia. He noted that by the end of November, around 300 km of pipeline had been laid along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. According to Russian Senator Vladimir Dzhabarov, as for US attempts under various pretexts to undermine the construction of the gas pipeline, they are being made to clear the market for supplies of American shale gas. The European Parliament, in turn, said that the Russian project will ensure reliable gas supplies to EU countries. New requirements by the United States and some European countries to stop the implementation of the pipeline did not affect its construction, the Nord Stream 2 AG company, responsible for the project, told Izvestia.

The 28-nation bloc has been considering ways to continue doing business with Tehran and bypass US economic restrictions after Washington pulled out from the Iran nuclear deal and reimposed economic sanctions.

CONNECTING THE DOTS: CRACK, CONTRAS, AND THE CIA

This 1996 interview with Gary Webb took place after his “Dark Alliance” newspaper series made waves across the country for piecing together the puzzle of the US crack epidemic.

The pipeline of CIA backed drug smuggling into the country and money smuggling out of the country to support the Nicaraguan Contras was wide open from the mid 1970s on, with players using everything from their shoes to freighters to move cocaine.

Webb was widely smeared by the CIA’s favorite newspapers (The New York Times, the Washington Post, The LA Times) shortly after this interview.

He was eventually vindicated, but not before his career was destroyed. He was found dead of an apparent suicide in 2005. The price of being a whistleblower?

Kremlin declines to comment on Mueller probe in US

The Kremlin refrains from commenting on new data on the case against Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, since it does not know anything about the individuals involved in it and is generally tired of following such investigations in the US conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has told reporters. "I can offer no comment on the issue. Frankly speaking, we are pretty tired of following these breathtaking investigations," the Kremlin spokesman said answering a question about new accusations against Manafort. "We do not even know those individuals who are mentioned in the probe, so I have nothing more to say here."

Armenian citizens vote for "revolutionary majority", says acting PM

Armenian citizens are voting for a "revolutionary majority" in the new parliament, acting PM of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan told reporters on Monday. "The citizens of our country are voting for a revolutionary majority, and they are doing it in a calm environment. The elections are clear and transparent. And we have to get used to the fact that since now, there will be no incidents during the elections. Times of turbulent elections are behind us," he said. Pashinyan noted that so far, Armenia’s former leading party, the Republican Party, has not received enough votes to hold any parliamentary seats. "If there had been transparent elections in Armenia in the last 18 years, then the Republican Party of Armenia would barely get the passing percent. We have said it repeatedly, and now we see the results with our own eyes," the acting PM stated.

Post-Soviet security bloc ready to organize humanitarian mission in Syria – Lavrov

In Syria, we are ready to organize a CSTO humanitarian mission. The first steps in this direction are being made.” “Not long ago, we worked out a joint operation with our Armenian colleagues to deliver Armenian humanitarian assistance to Syria using Russian planes.

DPR’s reconnaissance spots assault drones at Ukrainian troops’ positions in Donbass

A big number of assault drones that can be used to stage provocations with chemical weapons have been delivered by Ukrainian troops to an area near Gorlovka, Daniil Bezsonov, a spokesman for the defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), on Sunday. "We have received reliable reconnaissance data that a great number of assault drones of the Warmate-1 and Bayraktar types have been delivered by railway transport to the Gorlovka direction. Drones of the later type, manufactured jointly by Turkey and Ukraine, are capable of carrying of up to 70 kilograms. The Ukrainian authorities have recently boasted of buying drones of this type," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying. According to Bezsonov, these drones are meant to be used to stage provocations in Donbass and attack vital facilities in the DPR.

Combat engineers destroy about 80 WWII mines near Russia's Volgograd

Combat engineers of the Southern Military District from the Volgograd Region have destroyed Great Patriotic War (WWII) mines found near the village of Grachi, Gorodishchensky district, the Southern Military District’s press service reported on Monday. "The Volgograd Region’s military registration and enlistment office sent an application for demining to the motorized rifle brigade. The dangerous discoveries dating back to the Great Patriotic War were found during agricultural works," the report says. The combat engineers determined that the detected 77 explosive devices are 82-mm mortar rounds of a Red Army artillery unit which were used in the Battle of Stalingrad. The unearthed munitions were destroyed at the Prudboi Range. The Southern Military District’s combat engineers have demined more than 3 tonnes of explosive objects dating back to the Great Patriotic Ware since early 2018.

Kremlin slams rumors about Russia’s alleged involvement in France’s Yellow Vests

Statements about Russia’s alleged involvement in the French protests are nothing but slander, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. "Any statements about Russia’s alleged involvement are nothing but slander," he said when asked to comment on media reports about alleged foreign involvement in the Yellow Vest protests in France. In particular, The Times said, citing sources, that Russia could be the force behind in the protests. Peskov stressed that "Russia considers these developments to be France’s domestic affair." "We have never interfered in the domestic affairs of other countries, including France, as we place much importance on the development of bilateral relations and both countries have been working rather hard to that end," the Russian presidential spokesman added. Peskov also pointed out that Russia respected France’s sovereignty. "We are grateful when France responds in kind," he stressed.

MACRON CRISIS: EU may NEVER be able to TRUST President again, experts warn

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Dr Oliver Davis, a reader of French Studies from the School of Modern Languages and Culture at the University of Warwick, said: “It seriously damages his reputation for technocratic competence and calls his political judgement into question.

“The fact that his government was clearly taken by surprise and thought it could tough out unrest but has now given way to it shows that he is not a good listener.

“This is how the government is already trying to present itself, after the recent U-turn, almost as psychotherapeutic listener attentive to the nation’s sufferings - but rather that he was not only rash in his earlier pronouncements but guilty of a major error of political judgement.

“This is without doubt the toughest challenge Emmanuel Macron has faced since being elected and probably the most serious political crisis to engulf France since the near-insurrection of Mai ’68.”

DOMINIC LAWSON: The 'Norway Option' has as much life in it as Monty Python's dead Norwegian parrot

Norway, like its fellow EEA members not in the EU (Liechtenstein and Iceland), is a full member of the EU's Single Market. As a result, it must accept the directives of the Single Market.

These rules are decided upon by representatives of the EU member states in Brussels, having been set in train by the legislative machine of the European Commission.

But, being outside the EU, Norway has no say in them and no vote.

This point was made most forcibly by the former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg as a Remain campaigner in the 2016 referendum. He ridiculed the so-called 'Norway' option as 'fax democracy'.

Norway, he explained, is part of the Single Market 'but they have to wait by the fax machine for Brussels to send them the rules … we would be left powerless and voiceless, waiting, like the Norwegians, by the fax machine'.

French ‘Yellow Vest’ protester has hand BLOWN OFF by grenade as country descends into violence and bloodshed

Gendarmes were supported by 12 gendarmerie Berliet VXB-170 armoured cars, complete with 7.62mm machine guns and a 56mm Alsetex Cougar grenade launchers.

The vehicles are designed to break down barricades and to advance on crowds during riots.

A total of 106 out of 109 squads of gendarmes mobilised across France, along with other paramilitaries groups such as the Republican Security Companies (CRS).

The Yellow Vests said their protests would continue indefinitely as they campaign for even more tax reductions.

There have been calls for a State of Emergency to be announced, and for the Army to take to the streets.

The current spate of Paris violence is considered the worst since the Spring of 1968, when President Charles de Gaulle’s government feared a full-blown revolution.

France protests and the 'yellow vests’ deep anger reveal the hypocrisy at the heart of the green agenda

The yellow jacket protests are over more than just a single, obnoxious tax. They arise from the failure of Western leaders, like Macron, to look out for the interests of their people as a whole instead of just their favored classes.

The enraged, resentful citizens in the streets of Paris and rural roads of the countryside have no interest in crowning a new king. But they are fed up with paying ever-rising climate taxes so their “betters” in the drawing rooms of Paris and Brussels can feel good about themselves and pad the wallets of their business cronies.
