"The Russian Peace Scare Averted, But What About Iran?" Good writer, but I tire of Iran Talk. I still have not seen one iota of hard evidence that Trump intends to do anything crazy. The deal with Kushner is obviously that the United States won't be forced into more ruinous Wars For The Jews as long as the settlers get their way with the Palestinians, with the consequences of the Apartheid State left to World Jewry.

"TURKEY: The Falling from Grace of an Emperor with no Clothes". Prospects for Sunnistan remain unclear, with the real battle being fought between various American military and intelligence factions, but the current de facto Pentagon-Russian alliance in Syria, coupled with general impatience with Erdoğan's stunts and general inability to play by any rules, probably means the Ziowahabbists will have to wait.

"Alberta sisters last seen in mid-1980s found alive in the U.S.". Note the convoluted way they were found:
"Police also traced an alias Anna Hakze was known to use to a woman in Vancouver, but she was not the missing sister.
However, that woman was able to provide some useful information. She saved a newspaper clipping from 1984 about a book written by an author with the same unusual name as hers. She thought it was funny, so she had held on to it over the years.
In 2012, police got a tip that two women could be the Hakze sisters. One was the author of several books, but had a different name than the one in the 1984 newspaper ad. The other went by an alias Kym Hakze was known to use.
Attempts to contact them at the time were fruitless.
But new online searches earlier this year helped police get some traction. A recent story about the author mentioned in the 2012 tip included a photo and narrowed down where she was living.
There were no records under that name. But there were records under the author’s name in the 1984 Vancouver clipping. One of those records listed a sister as next of kin.
“Today’s world is big, vast,” said Woods. “But it also — because of travel and now the Internet — can be very small, too.”"
"During his political rise, Stephen K. Bannon was a man with no fixed address". The only possible conclusion is that he holds abducted women captive in the locked rooms, and then, when done with them, disposes of their bodies in the acid-filled Jacuzzi.
