WAR! - Putin Orders 150,000 Troops Deployed into Syria - Turkey Blockades Russia's Black Sea Fleet

Russia at war with Turkey & ISIS?

  • Islamist Turkey pushes the world closer to war by blockading Russia's Black Sea Fleet from traveling to Syria.
  • Now Putin is preparing to send 150,000 Russian troops to Syria. (UK Express)

(Superstation 95.1)  -  Turkey has begun a defacto blockade of Russian naval vessels,  preventing transit through the Dardanelles and the Strait of Bosporus, between the Black Sea and Mediterranean.   
According to the AIS tracking system for the movement of maritime vessels, only Turkish vessels are moving along the Bosphorus, and in the Dardanelles there is no movement of any shipping at all.
At the same time, both from the Black Sea, and from the Mediterranean Sea, there is a small cluster of ships under the Russian flag, just sitting and waiting. The image below shows the situation with the ships using the GPS transponder onboard each vessel:
In addition, shipping inside the Black Sea from Novorossiisk and Sevastopol in the direction of the Bosphorus, no Russian vessels are moving. This indirectly confirms the a CNN statement that Turkey may have blocked the movement of Russian ships on the Dardanelles and the Strait of Bosporus.

Playing with Fire
Islamist Turkey, which has been funding and arming ISIS and other
Islamist groups, now appears to be blockading Russia's Black Sea fleet.

There is a Treaty specifically covering the use of these waterways by nations of the world.  That Treaty is the Montreux Convention Regarding the Regime of the Straits. 
It is a 1936 agreement that gives Turkey control over the Bosporus Straits and the Dardanelles and regulates the transit of naval warships. The Convention gives Turkey full control over the Straits and guarantees the free passage of civilian vessels in peacetime. It restricts the passage of naval ships not belonging to Black Sea states. The terms of the convention have been the source of controversy over the years, most notably concerning the Soviet Union's military access to the Mediterranean Sea.
The International Straits Commission was abolished, authorizing the full resumption of Turkish military control over the Straits and the refortification of the Dardanelles. Turkey was authorized to close the Straits to all foreign warships in wartime or when it was threatened by aggression; additionally, it was authorized to refuse transit from merchant ships belonging to countries at war with Turkey.
Turkey has now invoked its power, but has not publicly stated whether they are blocking Russian Naval Vessels because Turkey is "threatened with aggression" or whether Turkey considers itself to be "at war."  Last week, Turkey shot down a Russian military jet over Syria and this has caused a major rift between the two nations. 
This latest development of blockading Russian naval vessels is a massive and terrifyingly dangerous development.  Blockading Russia and preventing its Black Sea fleet from traveling to the rest of the world, or back to its home port,  is something that will not sit well with the Russians. 
Earlier today, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the deployment of 150,000 Russian troops and equipment into Syria, but then ALSO ordered the deployment of 7,000 additional Russian Troops, tanks, rocket launchers and artillery, to the Russian Border of Turkey at Armenia, with orders to be "fully combat ready."

A redcoat solution to government surveillance - The 3rd Amendment

A California Democrat says:
'Use the 3rd Amendment to defeat the Police State.'

(ARS Technica)  -  The Third Amendment to the United States Constitution is just 32 words: "No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."
Amongst very nerdy constitutional law circles, the Third Amendment is practically a joke. It’s never been the primary basis of a Supreme Court decision, and it only turns up rarely in legal cases. The reality is that the federal government isn’t going to be sending American soldiers to individual homes anytime soon. Even The Onion tackled the issue in 2007: "Third Amendment Rights Group Celebrates Another Successful Year."
But in a recent op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, one California state lawmaker, Assemblyman Mike Gatto, has proposed a novel legal theory that could allow this amendment to fuel a major legal challenge to the American surveillance state:
Let's examine whether a case may be made. The National Security Agency is part of the Department of Defense and therefore of our nation's military. By law, the NSA director must be a commissioned military officer, and per its mission statement, the NSA gathers information for military purposes. That's strong evidence that NSA personnel would qualify as soldiers under the 3rd Amendment.
And why did the framers prohibit the government lodging soldiers in private homes? Besides a general distaste for standing armies, quartering was costly for homeowners; it was also an annoyance that completely extinguished a family's sense of privacy and made them feel violated. Sound familiar?

As Gatto acknowledges, the Third Amendment has hardly been litigated in the history of the republic. And he figures that civil liberties groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union have yet to strike a crippling blow to the government in their myriad of legal challenges under the First and Fourth Amendments. Plus, he realizes that a plaintiff and his or her creative lawyers would need to get around the thorny issue of standing, which has been a particular tough hurdle to overcome.
"I think they need to start taking other tools from the toolbox," Gatto told Ars. "It's definitely a long shot argument and is definitely one that has certain deficiencies, but what got me going on that line of reasoning is that when it has been cited in privacy cases it's been big landmark privacy cases—you get a sense that our Founding Fathers valued privacy. There’s a clear message that privacy is something."
As Gatto pointed out, one of the most recent citations for the Third Amendment in a Supreme Court decision (Griswold v. Connecticut) is from a big case. The Third Amendment is mentioned in one single sentence in this 1965 decision concerning the constitutionality of a Connecticut state law banning contraception, which the court overturned.
"The Third Amendment, in its prohibition against the quartering of soldiers ‘in any house’ in time of peace without the consent of the owner, is another facet of that privacy," the Supreme Court wrote in its 7-2 majority opinion.

Stealth Halal: Nordic Choice hotel group bans pork at breakfasts

Is it just a coincidence?

  • As Muslim immigration to Sweden massively increases we see excuses made to ban pork products from the menu.

Fox News: 

Scandinavian hotel chain bans bacon and sausage

A hotel group from Norway has banned sausages and bacon from its breakfast menu to encourage healthier and more sustainable eating practices.

Nordic Choice hotel group–  which operates over 170 properties including Comfort hotels, Quality hotels, Clarion hotels, and others throughout Scandinavia and the Baltics— will replace the meaty breakfast items with plant-based options at locations of its Comfort Hotel chain.

Petter Stordalen, Nordic Choice’s owner, cited sustainability—rather than the WHO’s October report that named processed meats as carcinogens—as the driving force behind the change.

“The focus on sustainability permeates what we do in Nordic Choice,” Stordalen told Hegnar.no. He added that he believes guests “will appreciate a good, healthy start to the day.”

But not everyone at his hotel group agrees.

“There are mixed reactions,”  Ebba Kohl, who runs the restaurant at one of Comfort’s properties, told Sweden’s Västerbottens Kuriren newspaper (via The Local). “Some are upset and some understanding.”

McCain - Trump is turning Muslims against America

Retard Alert
  • Pardon me for believing Muslim hate pre-dates Donald Trump.
  • A retarded John McCain ignores 1,400 years of Muslim hate of non-Muslims and says Trump is turning Muslims against Christians.
  • McCain naturally ignored the Muslim genocide against Christians in the Sudan's Darfur region, the Muslim persecution against Egyptian Christians, the Muslim genocide against the Greek peoples of Anatolia, the Muslim genocide against the Christian Assyrians and the Armenian Genocide.

(The Hill)  -  Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric is only serving to turn the international Muslim community against the U.S.
“Oh, I think it has an interesting effect of turning Muslims all over the world against the United States of America, which is 99.44 percent people who practice an honorable religion,” the Arizona senator said of Trump on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
McCain, a former GOP presidential nominee, also accused 2016 hopefuls of harping on the Syrian refugee crisis, while the U.S. faces much more substantial threats.
“As all of our candidates bloviate about the refugees, [Syrian President] Bashar Assad is a major cause of the refugees which are now flooding Europe and causing such consternation in the United States,” he said.

Sunday Concert - The Great Race

The Greatest of all Comedies
The comedy that is almost a musical

By Gary;

They are all gone now.

Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood, Peter Falk, Keenan Wynn and Blake Edwards have all left us. Only a 92 year old Larry Storch ("give a man some fightin room") remains.

But in their wake they left us the musical-comedy jewel of The Great Race.  In my mind it ranks as the greatest comedy of all time.

But in this case we celebrate the music of the great Henry Mancini who did the beautiful music for the film.

Often cited as one of the greatest composers in the history of film, Mancini won four Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and twenty Grammy Awards, plus a posthumous Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995.

Mancini brought us The Pink Panther, Breakfast at Tiffany's (Moon River), Peter Gunn and so many more.  Enjoy.

Russian Governor: Take no prisoners in war against terror

Russia's Muslim Governors

The Russians are not Pussies

(RT News)  -  The head of the Russian republic of Ingushetia told reporters a public debate would be unnecessary if special services were simply allowed to kill terrorists on the spot.
Upper house MPs propose canceling the moratorium on the death penalty for terrorists. I think we won’t have to do this once we give special services the right to search and neutralize terrorists, who threaten the lives and safety of our citizens, the property and infrastructure of our country, wherever these terrorists are found,” Yunus-Bek Yevkurov wrote on his Instagram page. All terrorists must fall under the ‘take no prisoners’ rule,” he added.
The comment came after deputy chairman of Russia’s Federation Council, Frants Klintsevich, proposed that senators bring back the death penalty in Russia because of the increased terrorism threat. New challenges have arisen since Russia started its operation against Islamic State in Syria.
Earlier this month, lower house MPs said Russia should cancel the moratorium on the death penalty after the Federal Security Service confirmed the deadliest air crash in modern Russian history – the downing of the A231 jet in Sinai – was caused by a bomb blast.

The states of southern Russia

Muslim Russian Governor Yunus-bek Yevkurov in his days as a soldier. 
Yevkurov has had various positions of command within the Russian Airborne Troops and has participated in counterterrorist operations in the North Caucasus. During the course of the Second Chechen War in 2000, he was in command of the 217th Guards Airborne Regiment. 

While on a reconnaissance mission, Yevkurov's team discovered a house where a group of captured Russian soldiers was held. Having neutralized the guards and infiltrated the building, the team was surrounded by Chechen reinforcements, resulting in armed combat. The Russian troops were able to break through the encirclement while Yevkurov was providing cover for the evacuation of the wounded. He personally carried a soldier to safety despite sustaining an injury himself.
 Twelve imprisoned soldiers were rescued. On 13 April 2000, Yevkurov, for his courage, was presented with the Hero of Russia award, the country's highest title of honor.  Read More . . .

NSA Fraud - Bulk collection ends, no terrorism was ever stopped

No Way Has The Spying Ended

  • FACT #1  -  Neither of the two terrorist attacks in Paris were discovered by the spying of any government agency in the world. The spy agencies are far more interested in spying on average citizens than terrorists. In fact, small terrorist attacks are welcome as a justification to expand the Police State.
  • FACT #2  -  So-called "warrants" will still be issued by the top secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.  But because the court is secret no one will know what is being done.

(Washington Examiner)  -  The National Security Agency's bulk collection of metadata will end at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 28, marking the end of a long-running saga in the battle between privacy and security advocates.
The program's expiration was established by the USA Freedom Act passed by Congress in June. The NSA now will be required to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on a "specific selection term" identifying a person, account, address or personal device that is of interest.
Under the previous program, the NSA collected records on every call made in the United States, including the time, duration, numbers called and other personally identifying information involved with cellular data. The agency claimed authorization for the program under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, passed in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, but operated the program in secrecy until it was exposed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden in 2013.
"'Metadata' means records about your private activities and associations," Snowden said on Twitter earlier this month. "It's an activity dossier. The novelty is in the lack of warrants."

Vladimir Putin’s massive, triple-decker war room

(Alexei Nikolskyi/SPUTNIK/Kremlin via Reuters)

While Congress Starves our Military

  • The Russians have spent hundreds of billions to modernize their military.
  • Meanwhile our anti-military Republican Congress has starved our armed forces since the GOP took over in 1995.

MOSCOW (Washington Post)  -  "Gentlemen. You can't fight in here. This is the war room!"
It could have been a scene straight out of "Dr. Strangelove" when President Vladimir V. Putin stepped into the Russian Ministry of Defense's brand new, three-tiered, multibillion-dollar control center this week, for a war briefing that had its fair share of movie-like pageantry.
The fortified National Control Defense Center was Putin's first stop after officials confirmed that the Russian charter jet crash that claimed 224 lives last month was the result of an act of terror.
On movie-theater-size screens, live broadcasts showed long-range strategic bombers taking off from Russian air bases to fly sorties over Syria. Putin instructed commanders in Syria to "make contact with the French and work with them as allies" as Russia seeks a central role in a proposed anti-terrorist coalition.

LIVE: Putin chairs Defense Ministry meeting after Sinai plane crash confirmed to be terrorist attack

But the real star of the show may have been the building itself, which is designed to be a new nerve center for the Russian military that will coordinate military action around the world, including ballistic missile launches and strategic nuclear deployments.

The building is roughly the equivalent of the U.S. National Military Command Center used by the Pentagon, but as one Russian state news agency noted in a breathless headline this week, "Russian Defense Data Center Outperforms US Facility Threefold: Official."
The center, which is fortified and said to sit on top of a maze of underground tunnels, is on the Frunze Naberezhnaya on the left bank of the Moscow river, a little over two miles from Red Square.
It was finished in 2014 and is part of a massive, decade-long modernization of Russia's army, which has cost hundreds of billions of dollars, but has also produced noted improvements, from the expertise of Russian troops deployed during the Crimea operation to the recent cruise missile strikes launched from the Caspian Sea.
The new national defense center also includes a helicopter pad that was deployed on the Moscow River late last year and can accommodate Russia's Mi-8 transport helicopter. In case of a war, it would be the country's premier communications center, and one Russian commander compared it to the military headquarters of the Soviet Union during World War II.

Government tip: Drink water if you're thirsty

Retard Alert!
The morons in the Democrat run USDA say 
drinking water helps if you are thirsty.

(Washington Examiner)  -  The U.S. Department of Agriculture has put together a webpage offering people instructions on how much water to drink, which includes the advice that people should drink to "quench your thirst throughout the day."
The tipsheet starts by saying people should drink water instead of sugary sodas or sports drinks. But how much water should people drink?
"Let your thirst be your guide," the tipsheet says.
"A healthy body can balance water needs throughout the day," it added. "Drink plenty of water if you are very active, live or work in hot conditions, or are an older adult."
Water in particular is good for people because it means fewer calories and is usually cheaper than other drinks. The department admitted that sometimes, "water just won't do," but said in those cases, try to cut back on other drinks, except for milk and a little fruit juice.
Still, USDA said parents should "have ready-to-go containers filled with water or healthy drinks available in the refrigerator."
"Place them in lunch boxes or backpacks for easy access when kids are away from home," it said.
"Water is always convenient," USDA added. "Fill a clean, reusable water bottle and toss it in your bag or brief case to quench your thirst throughout the day. Reusable bottles are also easy on the environment."

2012 Constitution Party nominee named to Trump team

Former Congressman Virgil Goode

Virgil Goode Endorses Trump

  • As the 2012 nominee of the Constitution Party, Goode was on the ballot in 26 states and pulled a tiny 122,388 votes.  I am not sure anyone actually knew he was a candidate. Still, and endorsement is an endorsement.
  • Goode was not on my California ballot. I cast my anti-GOP Establishment presidential protest vote for New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party. Johnson got 143,221 votes in California alone. More votes than Goode received in all of the 26 states where he appeared.

(Go Dan River.com) VIRGINIA  -  Former congressman and Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode will head Donald Trump’s 5th congressional district leadership team, according to a news release from the Trump presidential campaign Wednesday.

Goode served in Congress from 1997 to 2008 as a Democrat, Independent and Republican. In 2008, he lost his seat to Democrat Tom Perriello, who lost to Republican Rep. Robert Hurt in 2010. Hurt currently represents the 5th district.
“Contrary to the claims of the political consultant class, Mr. Trump is the only candidate who can defeat Hillary Clinton. Millions of Republican voters stayed home in 2008 and 2012 because they felt the GOP represented the interests of Wall Street rather than those of working Americans,” Goode said in the news release. “Donald Trump is the best candidate to connect with voters who feel disaffected from both parties.”

Goode could not be reached at the number posted for his Rocky Mount law office.
The 5th congressional district includes Campbell, Appomattox and Nelson counties and most of Bedford County.
Goode, whose 2012 presidential campaign slogan was “Citizenship Matters,” has long called for building a fence on the nation’s Southern border, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Trump has championed that idea throughout his campaign.
The release said other leadership team members include Republican Party of Virginia State Central Committee member Trent Maxey, Moneta-area businessman and political activist Jim McKelvey, and Lynchburg-area attorney Susan Oliver.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

Oh Jennifer my Love

By Gary;

Regular readers of The Federalist know I have a shrine to Jennifer Lawrence in an extra bedroom.  Every evening I light the candles.  Coming soon will be a 3D lifelike mannequin.

But enough of my deviant fantasies.

Those of you who have not seen The Hunger Games are to be pitied and even mocked. But you can redeem yourself this weekend by getting off your lazy butts and over to the theater.

The Hunger Games book triogy has sold over 65 million copies in the U.S.  I have not been burdened with having read the books so I can judge the film series on its own merits.

My ratings for the series.

9 out of 10  -  The Hunger Games
8 out of 10  -  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
7 out of 10  -  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1
9 out of 10  -  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2

Without going into spoilers I was highly entertained by the final installment of the series.  Lots of action and lots of Jennifer on the screen.  And even though he is a Canadian, Donald Sutherland is a national treasure.


Terminators learn to disobey human orders

Yes, we are that fucking stupid

  • There is a 100 yard dash going on with military scientists: should we end the world with a 12 Monkeys biological weapon, an army of Terminators or nukes.  If all goes well we can do all three at the same time.

(London Telegraph)  -  “Armed attack” robots that carry rifles and grenade launchers have been unveiled in China as the latest line of defence in the fight against “global terror”, state media reported.
The toy-sized attacker is one of a trio of new “anti-terror” machines, Xinhua news agency said, in a report which did not specify measures that would stop the robots falling into the wrong hands.
“The toy-sized robots can coordinate with each other on the battlefield,” said the report, following their unveiling at the 2015 World Robot Conference in Beijing.
The first model is known as a “reconnaissance” robot, which scouts for poisonous gases, dangerous chemicals and explosives before transmitting its findings back to base.
An attacker robot would start its mission, armed with “minor-caliber weapons, recoilless rifles and grenade launchers”.

Chinese Communist Terminators
We have reached the End of Days

Robots say "No" to human orders

(London Daily Mail)  -  If Hollywood ever had a lesson for scientists it is what happens if machines start to rebel against their human creators.

Yet despite this, roboticists have started to teach their own creations to say no to human orders.

They have programmed a pair of diminutive humanoid robots called Shafer and Dempster to disobey instructions from humans if it puts their own safety at risk.

The results are more like the apologetic robot rebel Sonny from the film I, Robot, starring Will Smith, than the homicidal machines of Terminator, but they demonstrate an important principal.

The robots they have created follow verbal instructions such as 'stand up' and 'sit down' from a human operator.

However, when they are asked to walk into an obstacle or off the end of a table, for example, the robots politely decline to do so.

Many leading figures, including Professor Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, have warned that artificial intelligence could spiral out of our control.

Others have warned that robots could ultimately end up replacing many workers in their jobs while there are some who fear it could lead to the machines taking over.

In the film I, Robot, artificial intelligence allows a robot called Sonny to overcome his programming and disobey the instructions of humans.
