Unofficial translation
It is highly symbolic that BRICS is returning to Africa in 2018 which marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, a prominent political and public figure of a global scale. A true son of the South African nation, he dedicated all his life to the fight against apartheid and rightfully became a key figure in the national reconciliation process in South Africa. We will always be grateful to him for his great personal contribution to the establishment of friendly relations between our two countries that have now reached a high level of a comprehensive strategic partnership. Our Group is a unique example of building partnerships between States that differ greatly in terms of culture and civilization. And this is exactly why it is so strong and united. The cooperation between th…

The Political Economy of the Weapons Industry
Guess Who’s Sleeping With Our Insecurity Blanket? By Joan Roelofs For many people the “military-industrial-complex (MIC)” brings to mind the top twenty weapons manufacturers. President Dwight Eisenhower, who warned about it in 1961, wanted to call it the military- industrial-congressional-complex, but decided it was not prudent to do so. Today it might well be called the military-industrial-congressional-almost-everything-complex. Most departments and levels of government, businesses, and also many charities, social service, environmental, and cultural organizations, are deeply embedded with the military. The weapons indu…

Scientists Trace Heat Wave To Massive Star At Center Of Solar System

PASADENA, CA—Groundbreaking new findings announced Monday suggest the record-setting heat wave plaguing much of the United States may be due to radiation emitted from an enormous star located in the center of the solar system. Scientists believe the star, which they have named G2V65, may in fact be the same bright yellow orb seen arcing over the sky day after day, and given its extreme heat and proximity to Earth, it is likely not only to have caused the heat wave, but to be responsible for every warm day in human history. "Our measurements indicate the massive amount of energy this thing gives off is able to travel 93 million miles and reach our planet in as little as eight and a half minutes," said Professor Mitch Kivens, an astronomer at the California Institute of Technology. "While we can't see them, we're fairly certain these infrared rays strike Earth's surface, become trapped by the atmosphere, and just heat everything up like a great big oven."

Meltdown: A Quick Synopsis Of The Current Psychotic Break From Reality On The Left.

Unlike most people I never take firm sides in partisan politics. Apart from prefering to weigh in on an (issue by issue) basis there is a big picture reason I take this position which I thoroughly deconstruct here in this post, please have a read if you have a strong position on the topic of partisanship: but that does not mean I don't take interest in the changing favour and fortunes of each side of the partisan divide.

All my social values are liberal but I've been watching the slow motion train wreck currently happening in liberal politics absolutely astounded by what's going on, especially after the fiasco of the Trump/Putin Helsinki summit. Discussions with "team blue" seem to reveal the following rationale being pervasive:

Regarding the fact that there is no evidence of meddling by the Russian state in the 2016 US Election

Is Every Year Really The Hottest Year On Record? How To Check For Yourself! Fudged Data Notwithstanding.

What is the real hottest year on record?

Welcome to the most powerful weather tool on the internet. You can have personal access to all weather data so often cited by the sources of the mischievous MSM propaganda machine that uses graphs truncated on the X-AXIS, uses "anomalies" (which are products not data) in their endless crusade to convince us the earth is imminently about to ignite and become a flaming ball of hellish inferno. From their OWN SOURCES. I'm not so certain this is ultimately useful because the data is is of such poor calibre because of "tuning" but it at least you have a starting point.

You will be surprised to learn that it's not even possible to calculate "global temperatures" and every layer of the atmosphere presents it's own story.
