V-22 Osprey Crashes in Syria, 2 Troops Injured, Official Says

I call bullshit on only 2 hurt. First paragraph says it was destroyed.

A U.S. military aircraft crashed in Syria on Friday, causing minor injuries to two service members, officials said.

Both service members were treated at a medical clinic and then released.

The aircraft was a U.S. Marine Corps Osprey with roughtly two dozen marines onboard.

Officilians said it was a "miracle" more didn't get hurt, adding that the aircraft is completely destoryed.

The incident happened at a coalition base at an undisclosed location in Syria, the official said.

“There is nothing to believe this was caused by enemy contact,” said the official, who declined to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The aircraft was completely destroyed.

“It’s a total loss,” the official said.

Officials said while it’s unclear what happened to cause the crash, a mechanical issue is suspected. The crash is under investigation.

Venezuela Begins Publishing Oil Basket Price In Yuan

Hillary spent over 1,000,000,000 on her campaign

But Facebook claims $50,000 in negative adds cost her the election.

Is Facebook full of shit ( trick question) or is Hillary the biggest piece of shit?

When Trump mentioned military options for Venezuela, what was he talking about?

Is the end of the petroleum dollar getting closer? The last two countries that didn't want dollars for their oil ended up getting a regime change- Iraq and Libya.

De-Dollarization Spikes - Venezuela Stops Accepting Dollars For Oil Payments
Apparently confirming what President Maduro had warned following the recent US sanctions, The Wall Street Journal reports that Venezuela has officially stopped accepting US Dollars as payment for its crude oil exports.

As we previously noted, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said last Thursday that Venezuela will be looking to “free” itself from the U.S. dollar next week. According to Reuters,

“Venezuela is going to implement a new system of international payments and will create a basket of currencies to free us from the dollar,” Maduro said in a multi-hour address to a new legislative “superbody.” He reportedly did not provide details of this new proposal.
Maduro hinted further that the South American country would look to using the yuan instead, among other currencies.

“If they pursue us with the dollar, we’ll use the Russian ruble, the yuan, yen, the Indian rupee, the euro,” Maduro also said.

CNN: Rice Unmasked Trump Team Because Obama Was Offended By UAE Crown Prince Visit To NY

For the better part of a year now Americans have speculated over precisely what pressing national security issue may have prompted the Obama administration to take the extreme measure of unmasking the names of Trump officials captured in foreign intelligence reports...you know, because bypassing the typical warrant process and violating an American citizen's fourth amendment protections is kind of a big deal.

So what was it...intelligence concerning an imminent terrorist attack...concrete evidence that Putin stole Hillary's emails? No, according to CNN, National Security Advisor Susan Rice ultimately made the call to unmask Trump officials because Obama was offended that the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates traveled to New York last December, after the election mind you, without giving him a heads up first.

"Former national security adviser Susan Rice privately told House investigators that she unmasked the identities of senior Trump officials to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year, multiple sources told CNN.

The New York meeting preceded a separate effort by the UAE to facilitate a back-channel communication between Russia and the incoming Trump White House.

The crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, arrived in New York last December in the transition period before Trump was sworn into office for a meeting with several top Trump officials, including Michael Flynn, the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his top strategist Steve Bannon, sources said.

The Obama administration felt misled by the United Arab Emirates, which had failed to mention that Zayed was coming to the United States even though it's customary for foreign dignitaries to notify the US government about their travels, according to several sources familiar with the matter. Rice, who served as then-President Obama's national security adviser in his second term, told the House Intelligence Committee last week that she requested the names of the Americans mentioned in the classified report be revealed internally, a practice officials in both parties say is common."

As you looked over those lists, you probably noticed that they contain many of the members of Congress that Americans complain about the most.
Unfortunately, because the vast majority of these individuals come from states or congressional districts that are basically a lock to vote a certain way, there is very little hope of ever removing them.  That means that most of these Congress critters are going to get to keep coming back for as long as they want.
No matter which political party you prefer, this should greatly disturb you.
Our founders certainly never intended for a permanent class of elitists to rule over us.
But that is what we have.

Leaked Brexit Document Reveals UK Hardline Plan To Deter EU Immigrants

More liberal double standards, hypocrisy and out right bullshit. It seems like it was just yesterday the U.K. was attacking Trump for his immigration policies.

According to a document leaked by the Guardian and prepared by the Home Office, the UK has prepared a "hardline" Brexit plan according to which Britain will end the free movement of labor immediately after Brexit and introduce restrictions "to deter all but highly-skilled EU workers." The proposal seeks to drive down the number of lower-skilled EU migrants, as well as a phased-in introduction to a new immigration system ending the right to settle in Britain for most European migrants.

While the end of free labor mobility was largely expected, the 82-page paper - marked as extremely sensitive and dated August 2017 - provides previously unreleased clarity and sets out for the first time how Britain intends to approach the controversial issue of immigration, "refocusing policy to put British workers first."

As the document summarizes, “to be considered valuable to the country as a whole, immigration should benefit not just the migrants themselves but also make existing residents better off."

Specifically, the controversial draft proposes measures to drive down the number of lower-skilled EU migrants – offering them residency for a maximum of only two years, in a document likely to cheer hardliners in the Tory party. Those in “high-skilled occupations” will be granted permits to work for a longer period of three to five years. Additionally, showing a passport will be mandatory for all EU nationals wanting to enter Britain. The paper also proposes introducing a system of temporary biometric residence permits for all EU nationals coming into the UK after Brexit for more than a few months.

The Home Office paper, entitled the Border, Immigration and Citizenship System After the UK Leaves the European Union, makes clear the proposals within it have yet to be endorsed by ministers, and are “subject to negotiations with EU”. But, as the Guardian writes, with the help of examples and flowcharts, the document sets out the direction of Home Office thinking in one of the most controversial subjects of the Brexit debate.
