The New Russian Army Isn't The Old Russian Army

Putin has not been sitting on his hands when it comes to re-arming the Motherland.
With tensions rising again between Russia and Ukraine, there are fears of a renewed upsurge in the fighting.

Russia-watchers in the West are monitoring events carefully, not just in terms of the day-to-day crisis, but because Russia's military is worth watching.

Moscow's military's performance in Ukraine has provided a foretaste of a new kind of warfare; eastern Ukraine has provided a laboratory for ground combat in the 21st Century.
The Russians have deployed advanced weapons systems that are causing NATO commanders a great deal of concern. These are not proposed systems. These are systems that were used in the Crimea and Ukraine incursions.
  • The use of drones to provide targeting information.
  • New, long-range air defenses.
  • Anti-access and area denial systems.
  • Communications jamming.
But one item comes to the the forefront, particularly when viewed against the recent spate of emails that were hacked from the DNC.
But perhaps the most worrying element of Russia's new approach is what has been broadly termed "hybrid warfare" - a mix of semi-clandestine operations; propaganda and information warfare; computer hacking and so on.

This was seen in its seizure of Crimea with troops in unmarked uniforms (the so-called "little green men"); the closing down of independent news sources and so on.

What is fascinating from the Russian literature is the priority that Moscow gives to the whole cyber-domain, ranging from large-scale hacking to even the trolling of Western service personnel using their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

CNN - Clinton News Network

CNN is in the tank for Hillary Clinton, but we knew that. They got a real jones for Clinton to be President and there is no lie too small, no outrage too large that they will not consider in order to achieve this. And they don't care who knows it.

From BPR:
It’s no secret that CNN and pretty much the entire American media, save Fox News, is sold out for Hillary Clinton.

Witness CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the man who called Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort a liar and debated Rudy Giuliani for 32 break-less minutes on the ridiculous liberal interpretation of Trump’s Second Amendment statement, wax eloquent during a 2014 segment during which he and another host were discussing Clinton’s potential entry into the race.

“It’s a problem because she’s doing what they call in politics “freezing pockets,” because the donors are giving her money thinking she’s going to run, that means they’re not going to have available money for other candidates if she doesn’t.” Cuomo said. “And I don’t think she’s going to give it to them. We couldn’t help her any more than we have, she’s got just a free ride so far from the media, we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign, so it had better happen.
CNN's Chris Cuomo is the brother of NYS Gov. Andrew Cuomo and is also a liberal piece of shit just like his brother and their father - Mario Cuomo. There is a Cuomo Suite in Hell waiting for them.

A Chicago Week is Everyone Else's Year

How Did I Miss Thee? Let Me Count The Ways.

In 1914 Carl Sandberg wrote a poem, "Chicago."

"Hog butcher for the world,
Tool maker, stacker of wheat,
Player with railroads and the nation's freight handler;
Stormy, husky, brawling,
City of the rolling gunfire."

Wow, how did he know?

From the Chicago Tribune:
Nearly 100 people have been shot in Chicago in less than a week, pushing the number of shooting victims so far this year to more than 2,500 — about 800 more than this time last year, according to data kept by the Tribune.

Between last Friday afternoon and early Thursday, at least 99 people were shot in the city, 24 of them fatally. At least nine people were killed on Monday alone, the deadliest day in Chicago in 13 years, according to Tribune data. Among the wounded that day was a 10-year-old boy shot in the back as he played on his front porch in Lawndale.

The number of shooting victims in Chicago stood at 2,514 Thursday morning. At this time last year, 1,725 people had been shot. The city has not seen this level of gun violence since the 1990s, a trend the Police Department has blamed on lax gun laws and feuding gang factions.
Yeah, lax gun laws.
In Chicago.
Right.

Carlos Danger: Yeah. I'm Back

Just needs someone to hold his pants.


Ex-Congressman, ex-mayoral candidate and perhaps soon-to-be ex-husband Anthony Weiner thinks the world cannot get enough of a good thing. His thing in particular.

To be truthful, we don't know whether or not if he is once again sexting photographs of his Hanes encrusted man-berries, but the implication is that Carlos Danger, the 2011 Fruit of the Loom Man of Mystery,is back in business.

From the Free Beacon:
Sydney Leathers, one of many women who exchanged sexually explicit pictures with disgraced politician Anthony Weiner, told Page Six on Thursday that Weiner is back to his old ways with a new woman.

Weiner, whose sexting scandals forced to resign from Congress in 2011 and then scuttled his run for mayor of New York City in 2013, used the name “Carlos Danger” when sexting Leathers.

She informed Page Six that a woman approached her about going to the press with the information she had on Weiner.

Leathers advised against it.
Mssr. Weiner is of course still married to Hillary Clinton's primary assistant and Muslim Brotherhood liaison, Huma Abedin.

A California "Going Away" Party

I won't minimize the suffering of people who are terminally ill. It is a terrible financial and emotional drain on the patient and the family.  But there is something "off" about throwing a party to celebrate your upcoming suicide. I just don't get it.

"Hey Mom and Dad, I'm going to kill myself on Saturday. Is it OK if we use the backyard and the pool?"

From the NY Post:
SAN DIEGO — In early July, Betsy Davis emailed her closest friends and relatives to invite them to a two-day party, telling them: “These circumstances are unlike any party you have attended before, requiring emotional stamina, centeredness and openness.”

And just one rule: No crying in front of her.

The 41-year-old artist with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, held the gathering to say goodbye before becoming one of the first Californians to take a lethal dose of drugs under the state’s new doctor-assisted suicide law for the terminally ill.

“For me and everyone who was invited, it was very challenging to consider, but there was no question that we would be there for her,” said Niels Alpert, a cinematographer from New York City.
Is this a California thing?
What do you bring? Flowers?
Cut flowers of course, they'll still last longer than the person you're giving them to.


UPDATE:
She was a performance artist. That explains a lot.
Her last gig was a killer.
Friends said it was the final performance for the artist, who once drew pictures on a stage with whipped cream.

“What Betsy did gave her the most beautiful death that any person could ever wish for,” Alpert said. “By taking charge, she turned her departure into a work of art.”

Science And Christianity Are Not Incompatible

There is so much nonsense accepted as truth regarding the church's resistance to science. Is simply isn't so. Christians have realized for centuries that there is a God of order because of all the order they can observe in Creation. Monasteries were often the only places where science and mathematics were studied and preserved.

From the Wintery knight:
Few topics are as open to misunderstanding as the relationship between faith and reason. The ongoing clash of creationism with evolution obscures the fact that Christianity has actually had a far more positive role to play in the history of science than commonly believed. Indeed, many of the alleged examples of religion holding back scientific progress turn out to be bogus. For instance, the Church has never taught that the Earth is flat and, in the Middle Ages, no one thought so anyway.

[...]It was only during the “enlightenment” that the idea took root that Christianity had been a serious impediment to science. Voltaire and his fellow philosophes opposed the Catholic Church because of its close association with France’s absolute monarchy. Accusing clerics of holding back scientific development was a safe way to make a political point. The cudgels were later taken up by TH Huxley, Darwin’s bulldog, in his struggle to free English science from any sort of clerical influence. Creationism did the rest of the job of persuading the public that Christianity and science are doomed to perpetual antagonism.
And this observation:

[...]Christians believed that God created the universe and ordained the laws of nature. To study the natural world was to admire the work of God. This could be a religious duty and inspire science when there were few other reasons to bother with it. It was faith that led Copernicus to reject the ugly Ptolemaic universe; that drove Johannes Kepler to discover the constitution of the solar system; and that convinced James Clerk Maxwell he could reduce electromagnetism to a set of equations so elegant they take the breathe away.

Trump Derangement Syndrome At A Frenzy

For the liberal media, it's all Trump all the time.
Haven't seen mass hysteria/panic like this since the Black Plague hit Paris in 1348.

Anne Coulter sums it up nicely:
Even having predicted that the media’s attacks on Trump would be unprecedented, I’m still amazed. Every single news outlet is dedicated to hysterically denouncing Trump, every minute of every day, while cooing at Hillary.

Everything Hillary has ever touched has failed, been engulfed in scandal, resulted in massive investigations, litigation, financial ruin, prison or death. The final stage of any Hillary enterprise is a grand announcement that Hillary did not technically break the law. Or no one can prove she did. Or, even if she did, no one ever gets prosecuted for it.

She’s prone to coughing fits and lapses of memory in the middle of speeches, and falls down all the time. But that’s not nearly as important as the media’s manufactured story about Trump throwing a baby out of a rally!

Trump is supposed to be joined at the hip to David Duke based on not “disavowing” him with sufficient ferocity the 17th time he was asked about this person he’s never met, never mentioned and didn’t invite to speak at his convention.

Hillary Ain't Right In The Head

The dems will eventually have to deal with it, Hillary ain't right in her heart or her head.
From tripping up stairs to appearing as if she’s in a seizure mid-sentence, Hillary can’t hide her health crisis any longer. While speaking in front of a small crowd at an under-attended Union Hall campaign stop, Hillary froze in the middle of her speech and appeared dazed and confused. A group of men, who many presumed were Secret Service at first glance, rushed to her assistance, gently stroking the suffering candidate’s back and telling her to “keep talking.” This reaction is not protocol for her security because that’s not who these men were.
[...]Hillary’s detail appears to be traveling with her own doctor, which is out of necessity and could be damning to her campaign. With his hand stroking her back into stable condition, Hillary was able to gather herself and continue on with her speech. However, when the situation is worse, he has a quick fix he can stab her with since he was caught carrying around a Diazepam pen, which is used for Acute Repetitive Seizures.
Breaking News:
Hillary's head injury revealed!

In 2010 Hillary was personally delivering 400 kg of weapons grade plutonium to Iran for Obama. When they arrived at Tehran, she accidentally drove the forklift off the side of the loading ramp of the C-130. On the way down she hit her head on a Iranian guard goat.

Because of this injury,she simply must not have access to the nuclear football. She'll drool on it.

Trump In A Landslide?

I stopped following the polls some time ago. Most are simply an attempt to manipulate, not measure, public opinion. Gateway Pundit has an interesting take on this issue:
[...]Thanks to social media there is more and more evidence that the polls are way off and if things stay as they are, Trump will win in a landslide!

It’s evident Hillary has a hard time filling a Union Hall while Trump regularly turns people away from his stadium and arena venues.

Now this – Analysis from social media provides additional support that Trump is likely to win in a landslide.

So how bad is it?
Evidence from ‘The Truth Division’ shows that if you look at social media, Trump is killing Hillary!

Facebook

Trump: 10,174,358 Likes Clinton: 5,385,959 Likes

Trump has nearly double the amount of ‘Likes’ that Clinton has!
