Report from Crimea by Auslander (The situation in Krimea and Sevastopol is serious)

Auslander posted this sitrep in our comment section. I have reposted it here for all to read. (Webmaster)
The situation in Krimea and Sevastopol is serious.
The power coming to Krimea was actually Russian electric, ‘transshipped’ to Krimea via uke power system, at great cost I might add. Included in this formal agreement and written contract was Russia supplying the ukes with substantially more electric than was ‘shipped’ to Krimea. Part of the payment for the transport fees was the high quality coal found only in Donbas within ukeland. Uke heating and electric generating plants are designed for specifically this coal and nothing else. The coal was shipped from Novorossiya to Rostov, then shipped north and west where it entered ukeland.

War on Syria; Not Quite According to Plan Part 3: A USA Unable To Bomb Syria

by Ghassan Kadi
With all the different components of the “Anti-Syrian Cocktail”, the most lethal is undoubtedly the USA. We should therefore take a deeper look at the military hopes and gambles that the USA took, in desperate attempts, to be able to bomb Syria in order to understand why those several attempts have failed for more than two decades.
In Part 2, we saw how the USA was hoping to be able to bomb Syria in 1991 and later on in 2003 following the first and second wars on Iraq. In this part, we shall see how and why America has to date remained unable to achieve this objective.

Nabbed: Gisele Bundchen turns Ninja(Burqa ) as she hits plastic surgeon's office in Paris.

How do you hide to go see a plastic surgeon, disguise yourself but ask your driver of 5 years to drive you there? That's exactly what super model and mother of 2 Gisele Bündchen did. In newly-released photos, Gisele and her younger sister are pictured stepping out of car outside a plastic surgeon's office in Paris on July 15, both of them dressed in burqas. Unfortunately her identity is given away by the presence of her longtime driver.

Gisele was at the plastic surgeon's office reportedly to have an eye and breast surgery. And just a day before she went there, she was seen somewhere else in Paris with the same driver. Plus Gisele had visited the clinic on June 30 - without any disguise - two weeks before she allegedly had plastic surgery there. She shouldn't have gone with him. See the photos after the jump

Senator Patrick Leahy: With "Friends" like this - By FFK (Must read)

The United States government helped Boko Haram immensely by refusing to classify them as a terrorist organization until 2014 and by refusing to sell us arms to fight them. Worst still, they imposed an international arms embargo on us so that we could not buy arms from anyone else in the international community. When asked why they are doing this to us they tell us that it is because of the Leahy Act which prohibits them from selling arms to governments that violate the human rights of their own citizens.
