Will Russia retaliate? Kremlin accuses the US of 'hooliganism' and breaking international law at highly charged UN meeting after warning White House 'there will be consequences' over Syrian airstrikes

Will Russia retaliate? Kremlin accuses the US of 'hooliganism' and breaking international law at highly charged UN meeting after warning White House 'there will be consequences' over Syrian airstrikes | 14 April 2018 | The Kremlin has accused the US, the UK and France of 'hooliganism' and breaking international law, after a coordinated series of missile strikes on Syrian airbases last night. The accusations come as Russia continues to claim chemical attacks by Assad's forces on his own people were staged by civilian volunteer force the White Helmets. At a highly charged emergency Security Council meeting, in New York, Russian diplomat Vassily Nebenzia condemned the strikes as 'unleashing a wave of chaos.' Russia demanded a vote on a UN resolution condemning 'the aggression' against Syria, but this was struck out by the Security Council.

Swiss lab says 'BZ toxin' used in Salisbury, not produced in Russia, was in US and UK service - Lavrov

Swiss lab says 'BZ toxin' used in Salisbury, not produced in Russia, was in US and UK service - Lavrov | 14 April 2018 | The substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, according to Swiss state Spiez lab, the Russian foreign minister said. The toxin was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states. Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW.

'Mission Accomplished' in Syria, Trump declares on Twitter

'Mission Accomplished' in Syria, Trump declares on Twitter | 14 April 2018 | Allied missiles struck at the heart of a[n alleged] Syrian chemical weapons arsenal in a show of force and resolve aimed at punishing the Assad government for a suspected poison gas attack against civilians and deterring the possible future use of such banned weapons. "A perfectly executed strike," President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday in the aftermath of his second decision in two years to fire missiles against Syria. "Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!" His choice of words recalled a similar claim associated with President [sic] George W. Bush following the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Bush addressed sailors aboard a ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that tied down U.S. forces for years.

Pentagon: US, allies launched 105 missiles in Syria, 'successfully' hit all three targets | 14 April 2018 | The Pentagon said Saturday that the U.S.-led allied missile strikes in Syria successfully hit all three targets and have "significantly crippled" Syrian President Bashar Assad's ability to make more chemical weapons [even though it's the US-backed 'rebels' who are using them]. "I think we dealt them a severe blow," Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at the Pentagon after the overnight bombing. "We've attacked the heart of the Syrians' chemical weapons program." McKenize identified the targets as Barzah Research and Development, the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site and the Him Shinshar Bunker Facility. He also said 105 missiles were launched by air and sea.

Syrian air defenses 'shoot down 13 of the missiles' fired in hour-long U.S.-led attack on three weapons 'research centers' and military bases across Damascus and Homs | 13 April 2018 | Syrian air defenses shot down 13 missiles fired in a U.S.-led attack on the country on Saturday, Syrian state TV said.

Speaking from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House, the commander-in-chief of the United States said the strikes pummeled targets associated with Assad's chemical weapons capabilities. According to CNN, at least one US Navy warship based in the Red Sea took part in the strikes. US B-1 bombers were also used.

Strike on Damascus comes just as Syria got the chance for a peaceful future - Moscow

Strike on Damascus comes just as Syria got the chance for a peaceful future - Moscow | 14 April 2018 | Damascus has come under attack by the US, France and the UK at a time when Syria is returning to peaceful life, after battling a terrorist aggression for years, Russia's Foreign Ministry said, as it condemned the attack. "First, the Syrian people was subjected to [CIA's] Arab Spring, then Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL (I-CIA-SIS)], now to 'smart' American missiles. A strike was carried out on the capital of a sovereign state, which for many years has been trying to survive under the threat of terror," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said. She blamed "all those who claim moral leadership in this world, who declare their exceptionalism" for the attack, noting that "you should be really exceptional" to attack Syria at a time "when it was given a chance for a peaceful future."

Lieutenant-General Evgeny Buzhinskiy, who previously served on the Russian General Staff, said if 'Russian blood is spilled', then Moscow will respond in kind. He told BBC Radio 4's Today show that he believed if Russia determined that the UK was behind any attack on Syria, Moscow could order hits on UK forces in the Mediterranean.

UK appears to be 'destroying' evidence in Skripal case - Russian envoy

UK appears to be 'destroying' evidence in Skripal case - Russian envoy | 13 April 2018 | The UK appears to be pursuing a policy of "destroying evidence" in the case of the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal, the Russian envoy to the UK said during a press conference on Friday. "We get the impression that the British government is deliberately pursuing the policy of destroying all possible evidence, classifying all remaining materials and making a transparent investigation impossible," Alexander Yakovenko said... Yakovenko reiterated Russia's dismay over the British government's refusal to allow Russian diplomats access to Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who was also poisoned, saying that from Moscow's point of view, the two Russian nationals appear to have been abducted by the British authorities.

House chairmen ask Rosenstein for copies of Comey memos | 13 April 2018 | Three Republican House chairman have asked the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide copies of former FBI Director James Comey's memos, which are said to detail the conversations he had with President Trump before he was fired. In a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday, the lawmakers requested that they receive the memos in unredacted form, arguing that they have a legal basis to review them. "The Committees request the Department of Justice make copies of the Comey memos available immediately. Copies of any unclassified memos should be produced to all three Committees in unredacted form," they wrote. "There is no legal basis for withholding these materials from Congress."

DOJ IG releases explosive report that led to firing of ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe

DOJ IG releases explosive report that led to firing of ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe | 13 April 2018 | Andrew McCabe, onetime acting FBI director, leaked a self-serving story to the press and later lied about it to his boss and federal investigators, prompting a stunning fall from grace that ended in his firing last month, says a bombshell report released Friday by the Justice Department's internal watchdog. Inspector General Michael Horowitz, appointed by President Barack Obama, had been reviewing FBI and DOJ actions leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The report, handed over to Congress on Friday and obtained by Fox News, looked at a leak to The Wall Street Journal about an FBI probe of the Clinton Foundation. The report says that McCabe authorized the leak and then misled investigators about it, leaking in a way that did not fall under a "public interest" exception.

Syria 'chemical attack' staged to provoke US airstrike, London pushed perpetrators - Russian MoD

Syria 'chemical attack' staged to provoke US airstrike, London pushed perpetrators - Russian MoD | 13 April 2018 | The Russian Defense Ministry has presented what it says is proof that the reported chemical weapons attack in Syria was staged. It also accused the British government of pressuring the perpetrators to speed up the "provocation." During a briefing on Friday, the ministry showed interviews with two people, who, it said, are medical professionals working in the only hospital operating in Douma, a town near the Syrian capital, Damascus... "The Russian Defense Ministry also has evidence that Britain had a direct involvement in arranging this provocation in Eastern Ghouta," said ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov, referring to the neighborhood of which Douma is part. "We know for certain that between April 3 and April 6 the so-called White Helmets were seriously pressured from London to speed up the provocation that they were preparing."

Brain-damaging lead found in tap water in hundreds of homes tested across Chicago, results show

Brain-damaging lead found in tap water in hundreds of homes tested across Chicago, results show | 12 April 2018 | Amid renewed national attention to the dangers of lead poisoning, hundreds of Chicagoans have taken the city up on its offer of free testing kits to determine if they are drinking tap water contaminated with the brain-damaging metal. A Tribune analysis of the results shows lead was found in water drawn from nearly 70 percent of the 2,797 homes tested during the past two years. Tap water in 3 of every 10 homes sampled had lead concentrations above 5 parts per billion, the maximum allowed in bottled water by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration...The testing kit results provide the most conclusive evidence yet of widespread hazards that have remained hidden for decades. Yet as Mayor Rahm Emanuel borrows hundreds of millions of dollars to overhaul the city's public water system, Chicago is [purposefully] keeping lead service lines in the ground.

Toxic lead found in tap water drawn from nearly 70 percent of 2,797 Chicago homes - report | 12 April 2018 | Toxic lead was found in tap water drawn from nearly 70% of 2,797 homes across Chicago within the past two years, according to a Chicago Tribune analysis of results from the tested water. The daily newspaper published a report on that analysis Thursday. Tap water in three of every 10 homes included in the analysis had lead concentrations above 5 parts per billion, the Tribune reported.

Trump: I'd only rejoin Pacific trade pact if deal was 'substantially better'

Trump: I'd only rejoin Pacific trade pact if deal was 'substantially better' | 12 April 2018 | President Trump late Thursday tempered expectations that he would re-enter the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), saying he would only re-join the trade pact corporate takeover if the deal were "substantially better." "Would only join TPP if the deal were substantially better than the deal offered to Pres. Obama," Trump tweeted. "We already have BILATERAL deals with six of the eleven nations in TPP, and are working to make a deal with the biggest of those nations, Japan, who has hit us hard on trade for years!" Trump added.

UK action in Syria nears as PM wins Cabinet approval

UK action in Syria nears as PM wins Cabinet approval | 13 April 2018 | The Prime Minister has won the backing of her Cabinet for action to prevent further chemical attacks by Syria's President Bashar al Assad [which is completely ludicrous, since in all likelihood, the US/UK backed 'moderate Syrian rebels' carried out the chemical attack, as they've done in the past]. Following an emergency meeting lasting more than two hours on Thursday, Theresa May's top ministers agreed Britain should continue to work with the US and France on a coordinated response. The Cabinet's approval for action raised the likelihood of Britain joining France and the US in a military response against Syria's government. It also suggested the Prime Minister is set to defy calls from opposition parties for Parliament to be recalled in order for MPs to vote on authorising intervention.

Trump Proposes Rejoining Trans-Pacific Partnership

Trump Proposes Rejoining Trans-Pacific Partnership | 12 April 2018 | President Trump, in a sharp reversal, told a gathering of farm state lawmakers and governors on Thursday morning that the United States was looking into rejoining a multicountry trade agreement corporate takeover known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a deal he pulled out of days after assuming the presidency. Mr. Trump's decision to throw out the Trans-Pacific Partnership and his pledge to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement were bedrock promises of his populist campaign, which centered heavily on unfair trade practices that he said had robbed American manufacturers and workers. But, as he often does, the president started to change gears after hearing complaints from important constituents -- in this case, Republican lawmakers who said farmers and other businesses their corporate owners in their states would suffer from his trade approach since they send many of their products abroad.

Rosenstein lets Nunes, Gowdy review FBI memo that kick-started Russia probe

Rosenstein lets Nunes, Gowdy review FBI memo that kick-started Russia probe | 11 April 2018 | Facing legal action, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein allowed House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to view the FBI memo that instigated the bureau's counterintelligence investigation of contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign, Nunes confirmed on Wednesday. The meeting came a day after Nunes threatened to take legal action -- including contempt proceedings and impeachment -- against Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray for failing to produce a clean copy of the memo, known as an electronic communication or EC, that was responsive to an August 2017 committee subpoena. "Although the subpoenas issued by this Committee in August 2017 remain in effect, I’d like to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for his cooperation today," Nunes responded.

US 'still assessing the intelligence' on alleged Syrian chemical attack, defense secretary says

US 'still assessing the intelligence' on alleged Syrian chemical attack, defense secretary says | 11 April 2018 | The U.S. and its allies are "still assessing the intelligence" needed to prove the Assad regime conducted a recent alleged chemical attack in Syria, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday. When asked if he had seen enough evidence to blame Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for last weekend's alleged chemical weapons attack in the city of Douma, Mattis said, “We are still assessing the intelligence, ourselves and our allies. We’re still working on this," referring to France and the United Kingdom. His comments came before he went to the White House Wednesday afternoon for a meeting on Syria.

Bannon pitches White House on plan to cripple Mueller probe and protect Trump

Bannon pitches White House on plan to cripple Mueller probe and protect Trump | 11 April 2018 | Stephen K. Bannon, who was ousted as White House chief strategist last summer but has remained in touch with some members of President Trump's circle, is pitching a plan to West Wing aides and congressional allies to cripple the federal probe into [alleged] Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to four people familiar with the discussions. The first step, these people say, would be for Trump to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the work of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and in recent days signed off on a search warrant of Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen. Bannon is also recommending the White House cease its cooperation with Mueller, reversing the policy of Trump's legal team to provide information to the special counsel's team and to allow staff members to sit for interviews...

Moscow to Trump: Are 'smart' missiles an attempt to destroy alleged chemical attack evidence in Syria?

Moscow to Trump: Are 'smart' missiles an attempt to destroy alleged chemical attack evidence in Syria? | 11 April 2018 | Responding to a threat from US President Donald Trump, who said Russia should prepare for "nice new and smart missiles" launched by America at Syria, Moscow said if the weapons were smart, they would target terrorists. "Smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not [Syria's] lawful government, which has spent several years fighting against international terrorism on its territory," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said in response to Trump's tweet on Wednesday. She added the US may be seeking to undermine an inspection by chemical weapons experts, who are planning to investigate on the ground in Syria after the alleged attack which sparked the current confrontation between Russia and the US.

Two ex-British ambassadors question claims that Assad ordered chemical attack as threat of war grows

Two ex-British ambassadors question claims that Assad ordered chemical attack as threat of war grows | 11 April 2018 | Ex-British ambassadors questioned claims that Assad is behind a chemical attack that killed dozens of Syrians. Peter Ford and Craig Murray expressed doubt, urging the UK government not to rush into a war without proof. Former British ambassador to Syria Peter Ford, speaking during a heated interview on BBC Radio Scotland, believes that the reported chemical attack in Douma may not have been committed by Assad, contrary to claims by US President Donald Trump, among others...The comments from the two former ambassadors come as MPs from all the main political parties urge the UK prime minister to consult parliament before lending military support to the US and France, both of whom are discussing options to target Assad over the alleged chemical attack in Douma.

House Speaker Paul Ryan will not run for re-election

House Speaker Paul Ryan will not run for re-election | 11 April 2018 | House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Deep State-Wis., announced Wednesday that he is not seeking re-election in November -- a move that ends a nearly two decade career in Congress and comes as the GOP girds for a tough fight to keep control of the House this year. Ryan said in a press conference after meeting with House lawmakers that his primary motivation was so he could spend more time with his wife and children, who he said he did not want to remember him as a "weekend Dad." The move ignites the race to potentially succeed Ryan should Republicans hold the House in November. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif are both mentioned as possibilities.

Eurocontrol warns airlines of possible missile strikes into Syria

Eurocontrol warns airlines of possible missile strikes into Syria --Air-to-ground and/or cruise missile threat-agency -- Exercise caution over eastern Mediterranean in next 72 hrs --Regulators told airlines to avoid Syrian airspace | 11 April 2018 | Pan-European air traffic control agency Eurocontrol on Tuesday warned airlines to exercise caution in the eastern Mediterranean due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria in next 72 hours. Eurocontrol said that air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles could be used within that period and there was a possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment.

Duma defense chief says Russia may respond with military force to US strike on Syria | 10 April 2018 | The head of the Duma defense committee and former commander of Russian airborne troops has said Moscow would take all measures, including military ones, in response to a possible US strike on government forces in Syria. "The double standard policy has overstepped all possible boundaries. At this point, the [pro-Putin parliamentary majority] United Russia party must responsibly state that we are going to take all political and diplomatic measures, and also military measures if such need arises," Vladimir Shamanov said on Tuesday before the State Duma plenary session. "Not a single unlawful action will be left without response," he added.

US Navy destroyer is now off Syrian coast with 60 Tomahawk missiles | 10 April 2018 | A U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is now situated off the coast of Syria with 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles on board, CNN Turk has reported.

A Navy source confirmed to the Washington Examiner that the guided-missile destroyer completed a port call in Cyprus and "got underway in the eastern Mediterranean within range of Syria Monday." The Pentagon said the move was planned in advance.
