Russia Warns Of Consequences For Syria Strikes

(Washington, DC) – Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. is warning that there will be consequences for the U.S.-led military strikes on Syria. Ambassador Anatoly Antonov called the strikes an insult to Russian president Vladimir Putin, and said insulting the president of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible. Antonov said Friday that the U.S. has the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons and has no moral right to blame other countries. He said Russia is being threatened by the strikes, and that “such actions will not be left without consequences.”

On Saturday, Russian lawmaker Vladimir Dzhabarov said Russia was likely to call for a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss U.S., British and French air strikes on Syria. The lawmaker told Russian news, “the situation is being analyzed right now.”

UN Security Council Meets Over Syria Airstrikes

(SL) – The U.S. is “locked and loaded” if Syria chooses to use chemical weapons again. U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley delivered the promise from President Trump at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council. The council met today over the joint airstrikes launched against targets in Syria last night. Haley insisted that the strikes were a justified and proportionate reaction to a chemical weapons attack attributed to Syria’s government. She also accused Russia of aiding and abetting the Syria regime, enabling it to use chemical weapons with impunity.

Russia’s ambassador blasted the U.S. and its allies for what he called a complete disregard for international law. He raised doubts on whether the reported chemical weapons attack that prompted the airstrikes actually took place. He added that the U.S. is pandering to terrorists who have kept Syria in the grip of chaos for years.

Russian Woman Dies In Gruesome Medical Mistake

(Moscow) – A Russian woman is dead after doctors reportedly hooked her up to an embalming fluid drip instead of saline.

A report in the British tabloid “The Sun” says 27-year-old Ekaterina Fedyaeva was in the hospital for a minor surgery when the mistake was made. Doctors sent formalin into her body, which can be used to preserve corpses or as a disinfectant.

The woman went through two days of agony before going into a coma and eventually, to the other side. She was buried April 7th. An investigation is said to be underway.

Russia Issues Stern Warning To U.S. Over Alleged Chemical Attack

(Washington, DC) – Russia is issuing a warning to the United States following a suspected chemical attack in Syria. In a statement, Russia’s foreign ministry says if the U.S. uses any “military intervention” in Syria, it would be “unacceptable” and lead to the “most serious consequences.”

The statement adds the alleged chemical attack is “fabricated.” The weekend attack killed dozens of people in a rebel-held Damascus suburb in war-torn Syria.

President Trump spread the blame of the alleged attack, singling out Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia and Iran for backing “Animal” Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Russia Accuses UK Of Bluffing On Spy Poisoning

(SL) – Russia says Britain is bluffing in accusing the Kremlin of poisoning a former Russian double-agent and his daughter. An official with the Russian embassy in London made that claim today in an interview with the TASS news agency. Today’s denial comes as Russia is calling an emergency meeting of the Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons. Russian President Vladimir Putin says he hopes that will end talk of whether the Kremlin was behind the attack. British investigators say a chemical agent developed by the Soviet Union was smeared on the door of Sergei Skripal’s home in the southern English city of Salisbury.

The 66-year-old Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury on March 4th. Yulia Skripal is awake and talking but her father is still unconscious.

UK Nerve Agent Attack: 200 Witnesses ID’d

(Salisbury, UK) – Police in the UK say they’ve identified more than 200 witnesses in the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter. Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found on a bench a week ago in Salisbury and both remain in critical condition.skripalsA detective who helped the two is also sick.

He was found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury with his daughter Yulia, 33.

The pair remained critically ill in hospital on Tuesday night as detectives worked to identify the unknown substance which caused them to collapse, and how they were exposed to it.

Russia denies involvement with the attack.

Emma Gonzalez And Other Students At Anti-Gun Rally Call Trump Out For Being In Bed With The NRA And Call For Change… “He Wouldn’t Have Hurt That Many Students With A Knife”

(Parkland, Fl) – Police in South Florida say they have a confession from the suspected gunman in Wednesday’s school shooting that left 17 people dead. After being read his rights, Nikolas Cruz admitted he brought the AR-15 rifle to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and opened fire on students in the hallways and multiple classrooms.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel explained that Cruz was able to get away from the scene by ditching his gun and blending in with students who fleeing. Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of pre-meditated murder.

teenager-kills-at-least-17-after-opening-fire-at-a-florida-high-school-photosThe main question however, is how did Cruz have access to guns anyway? We could start with Donald Trump rolling back an Obama era order that called for the prevention of mental impaired individuals being able to purchase guns.

During an anti-gun rally today in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student  Emma Gonzalez called out Donald Trump for that very action. She also stated that she had one question for Trump, How much money has he received from the NRA? She already knew the answer.

Metro UK breaks it down like this, During his campaign to become President in 2016, Trump benefited from $21 million in NRA donations backing his candidacy.collageA reported $9.6 million went towards pro-Trump adverts and promotional material and another $12 million went on adverts attacking Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Other sources put that figure even higher, closer to $30 million. In return, Trump has spoken at several NRA events and pledged his loyalty to the group.

Russia Says All 71 On Board Passenger Plane Died In Crash

(Moscow) – Russian authorities say all 71 people aboard a passenger plane are dead after it crashed shortly after takeoff this morning. The Moscow Inter-Regional Transport Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement to Interfax that the 65 passengers and six crew members perished.

Russia’s emergency services said those on board “had no chance” of survival. Russian President Vladimir Putin offered condolences to the victims’ families.

The RIA Novosti news agency says authorities spotted the wreckage in a field outside Moscow. The Interfax news agency said witnesses saw the plane in flames falling from the sky. Witness footage from the scene broadcast on Russian television showed orange-painted pieces of the fuselage scattered across the snow.

An investigation has been ordered to determine the cause of the crash.

Despite Alleged Spying Eyes, Models Look Ready For Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show In China

(SL) – There’s no other way to put it. China is not with the sh**s (…as the kids say). After banning ‘Swish Swish’ singer Katy Perry indefinitely for wearing a disrespectful dress during a show a couple of years ago; and Gigi Hadid for her insensitive video with Buddha references, rumor has it that Chinese officials are keeping a tight eye on the model visitors.

The government is reportedly combing the social media accounts and media coverage of anyone set to appear in the show.

Harry Styles will replace Katy Perry, but the problems stretch further. Russian models Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova and Ukranian model Dasha Khlystun, who booked spots in the show, were also denied visas.

Word has it that they’re also looking at media hoping to cover the show.

Maxim reports:

“We’re told fashion bloggers booked to cover the glitzy event are canceling their trips because the Chinese government won’t give them visas; TV producers are grappling with bureaucrats over permission to shoot outside the Mercedes-Benz Arena, where it’s being held (“If you’re going to China, you want to show that you are in China!” fumed an insider); and Victoria’s Secret staffers in China can’t send out press releases because they have to be approved by government officials.

“It’s just a nightmare for all the media trying to cover [the show],” said a jet-setting insider. “These TV companies are spending a fortune on it, and they don’t even know what they can shoot when they get there.”

We’re told that producers charged with coordinating the coverage for various outlets are “on the verge of nervous breakdowns.”

The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show  is set for November 28th in Shanghai.

Laughable: Donald Trump Tweets Plans To Create An Impenetrable Cyber Security Unit WITH Russia To Protect US Elections From Hacking

(SL) – Donald Trump is tweeting AGAIN and this time he is disclosing possible plans to create an impenetrable cyber security to protect the United States from hacking with the very same crew that’s believed to have hacked the US election…..RUSSIA.

Trump claims he checked Putin about the rumors saying, “I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I’ve already given my opinion…..,”

Donald Trump is keen on burying the hacking rumors for obvious reasons.  For one, there are way too many reports of his people including his son meeting with the Russians before and during the election.  And secondly, it’s no secret that Donald Trump has clear business ties with Russia. Why would he ever turn on Putin?

Fortune gave an unequivocal account of Trump’s ties with Russia.

Donald Trump said in a recent interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, “I have had dealings over the years where I sold a house to a very wealthy Russian many years ago. I had the Miss Universe pageant — which I owned for quite a while — I had it in Moscow a long time ago. But other than that, I have nothing to do with Russia.”

The reality, however, is that Trump couldn’t be more wrong. The President has deep Russian connections that far exceed what he admitted to Holt.

In a 2007 deposition that Trump gave as part of his unsuccessful defamation lawsuit against reporter Timothy O’Brien, he describes efforts to launch real estate ventures in Russia through Bayrock Associates, a shady Russian-connected outfit. Bayrock had partnered with Trump on at least four major but failed American projects: the Fort Lauderdale Trump Tower, the Trump Ocean Club in Fort Lauderdale, the SoHo condominium-hotel in New York, and a resort in Phoenix.
