- One of the most violent years in Chicago history ended with a sobering tally: 762 homicides, the most in two decades in the city
- ‘Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016,’ Donald Trump tweeted on Monday
- ‘If Mayor [Rahm Emanuel] can’t do it he must ask for Federal help!’
- Emanuel and Trump met December 7 in New York City but reportedly talked about illegal-immigrant ‘dreamers,’ not gun violence
- The nation’s third largest city also saw 1,100 more shooting incidents last year than it did in 2015
- The increase in homicides compared to 2015, when 485 were reported, is the largest spike in 60 years
On Monday, I reported that the land that Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah illegally designated in Nevada for a national monument was near the Bundy Ranch. On New Year’s Eve, protesters rallied at Gold Butte to protest the criminal land grab by the Obama administration.
Kevin Jenkins reports at The Spectrum:
As Utah’s attorney general works with county, state and federal leaders to craft a lawsuit against President Barack Obama’s Wednesday declaration of monument protection for a Four Corners area land tract, Nevadans opposed to the president’s similar declaration of a monument south of Mesquite are waging a more uphill battle without high-profile government officials by their side.
Good News: Washington Frozen Out of Syria Peace Plan, by Ron Paul
. . . What is so important about this particular ceasefire? It was planned, agreed to, and implemented without the participation of the United States Government.
In fact it was frustration with Washington’s refusal to separate its “moderates” from terrorist groups and its continued insistence on regime change for the Syrian government that led the three countries to pursue a solution on their own for Syria. They also included the Syrian government and much of the opposition in the agreement, which the US government has been unwilling to do.
We have been told all along by the neocons and “humanitarian interventionists” that the United States must take a central role in every world crisis or nothing will ever be solved. We are the “indispensable nation,” they say, and without our involvement the world will collapse. Our credibility is on the line, they claim, and if we don’t step up no one will. All this is untrue, as we have seen last week.
The fact is, it is often US involvement in “solving” these crises that actually perpetuates them. Consider the 60-plus year state of war between North and South Korea. Has US intervention done anything to solve the problem? How about our decades of meddling in the Israel-Palestine dispute? Are we any closer to peace between the Israelis and Palestinians despite the billions we have spent bribing and interfering?
Non-intervention in the affairs of others does not damage US credibility overseas. It is US meddling, bombing, droning, and regime-changing that damages our credibility overseas. US obstruction in Syria kept the war going. As the Syrians and Russians were liberating east Aleppo from its four year siege by al-Qaeda, the Obama Administration was demanding a ceasefire. As Syrians began to move back into their homes in east Aleppo, the State Department continued to tell us that the Russians and Syrian government were slaughtering civilians for the fun of it.
So why all the media attention on unproven accusations of Russian hacking and President Obama’s predictable, yet meaningless response? The mainstream media does the bidding of Washington’s interventionists and they are desperate to divert attention from what may prove to be the beginning of the end of Syria’s long nightmare. They don’t want Americans to know that the rest of the world can solve its own problems without the US global policemen in the center of the action. When it is finally understood that we don’t need to be involved for crises to be solved overseas, the neocons will lose. Let’s hope that happens soon!

TARTOUS: It took place on Tartous’s lovely Corniche on the Sea. A security detail was suspicious about two bearded rodents dressed in military uniforms who did not look like they were Syrians. When they approached the vehicle in which the rats were seated, the 2 terrorists . . .

It is unprecedented that such Herculean act that could redrawn the Middle East is engineered and accepted by the United State this late in a lame duck administrations life. We seem so anxious for war almost anywhere and right away.
