Ukraine Rejects The Brussels Club, Opts For Trade Over Empty Promises

On Thursday the Ukrainian parliament reject a final set of laws designed to pave the way for  Ukraine to join the EU's "Eastern Partnership" program as an associate EU member. The surprise move cast a shadow on the Eastern Partnership signing ceremony scheduled to take place in Vilnius, Lithuania next week.

With this move, Ukraine has signaled an end to its interest in further formal association with the European Union and a preference for participation in the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia.

Perhaps sensing that a relationship with the EU would also involve endless meddling in internal Ukrainian affairs, the last straw for the Ukrainian parliament was a package of Brussels-demanded legislation which would have released from custody former prime minister Yulia "Gas Princess" Timoshenko, serving time on corruption charges.

The Ron Paul Institute Meets The Ron Paul Channel!

They hoped that Ron Paul's "retirement" meant they would no longer have to hear to the truth and deal with Ron Paul's massive and growing following. They hoped they could just forget it all like it was a bad dream. The neocons who have ruined our foreign policy and the totalitarians who are building the police state at home must be gnashing their teeth seeing that not only has he not been silenced since leaving the House, his reach and his influence is accelerating. A new television network, a new policy institute, and more: this is the Ron Paul Century!

Remember Armistice Day With Shane

Despite what they might say, today, November 11th, is Armistice Day. It is a day meant to be grateful for the end of a horrific war and the supposed end of wars. A day to pause and reflect on the horrors of an entire continent, an entire civiliztation destroyed by the madness of war. To mourn the dead, the senseless slaughter.

Is Syria Burning?

Remember the hopeful and optimistic "Arab Spring" narrative that the mainstream media introduced when Syria was hit by unrest in the spring of 2011? We were told by media outlet after media outlet that it was a pro-democracy movement made up of Syrians demanding more freedom and an end to one-party rule. The people were all with the revolution, we were told, which only reluctantly turned violent after Assad brutally suppressed the peaceful protests. The average Syrians, we were told, were all in favor of the overthrow of Assad.

Breaking: Obama's Syria Allies Bomb Vatican Embassy

In keeping with recent practice of bombing the diplomatic facilities which oppose their struggle to overthrow the Syria government, the insurgents in Syria have hit the Vatican Embassy with a mortar shell today.

Targetting the Vatican embassy was likely no accident. As the US was on the verge of bombing Syria in late-August, the pope held a peace vigil at the Vatican attended by more than 100,000. As support for a US attack sagged among the American public and in Congress, this Vatican effort to head off a US war on behalf of the anti-Assad fighters was certainly of great significance. It may have been a deciding factor.

Intel Chairman Hypes Terrorism Deaths

House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) seems to be taking a page from his beloved NSA. In an effort to make the claim that spying on the rest of us is more necessary than ever, Rogers has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into the "terrorism" basket. In this way, he has greatly hyped "terrorism" deaths in 2012.

Kerry Returns to Hold Saudi Hands

Saudi Arabia's recent North Korea-like cry for US attention -- announcing it was downgrading ties with its most important ally -- was all just drama for the camera. US Secretary of State John Kerry answered the plea of a weepy ally and again rushed to the Middle East to hold hands with his Saudi counterpart, Saud al Faisal. The ties have been mended, it seems, all is forgiven.

The Saudis were miffed that the hundreds of millions of dollars they spent to overthrow Syrian president Assad have not done the trick, and that in light of their failure the US had not taken up their fight in a more assertive manner. A last minute US pull-back from war, brokered by the Russians, left the Saudis without any muscle to back up their money.

Israel Attacks Syria -- Again!

Just as the mainstream press is reporting -- in astonishment -- that the Syrian government has actually abided by its unilaterally agreed upon pledge to submit its strategic chemical weapon deterrent to destruction by the international community, the international media is reporting that the Israeli military has once again launched a military attack against Syrian territory.

This marks at least the fifth time in 2013 that the Israeli military has, in clear violation of international law, launched military attacks against neighboring Syria. In violation of Lebanese airspace as well, it was reported that Israeli bombers flew over Lebanon to strike a Syrian military base near Latakia.

The Great American Spy Caper

Poor James Clapper. The Director of National Intelligence -- a superfluous position born of the Intelligence Community's failures on 9/11 -- was again dragged before Capitol Hill, this time to explain the highly embarrassing revelations that the NSA had been monitoring the personal communications of allied state leaders. Last time he was forced to lie that the NSA was not monitoring our phone calls. This time he may have been telling an inconvenient truth.
