    An explosion has hit one of the largest refineries in Italy, producing huge plumes of black smoke and making the air unbreathable in the vicinity. The authorities dispatched fire engines to battle the blaze. The ENI oil refinery in Sannazzaro de’ Burgondi, near Milan, caught fire on Tuesday morning, according to local media. People living in the area reported“a loud roar” which could be felt in neighboring municipalities. The company activated an alarm, and local authorities sent in firefighters and closed the entire area.Later in the day, ENI said that the situation had been brought under control, adding that no one had been injured in the incident. The blaze was extinguished within hours, the company noted. More at: https://www.rt.com/news/468986-italy-oil-refinery-blast/

    For the first time, the U.S. Navy has acknowledged that the three UFO videos that were released by former Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge and published by The New York Times are of real "unidentified" objects. “The Navy considers the phenomena contained/depicted in those three videos as unidentified," Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher told The Black Vault, a website dedicated to declassified government documents. Gradisher added that “the ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’ terminology is used because it provides the basic descriptor for the sightings/observations of unauthorized/unidentified aircraft/objects that have been observed entering/operating in the airspace of various military-controlled training ranges.” More at: https://www.foxnews.com/tech/ufo-videos-real-navy-acknowledges

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party and Benny Gantz's Kahol Lavan are tied but neither can secure a ruling majority, with 92 percent of the votes in Israel's Tuesday election counted, according to a source in Israel's Central Elections Committee. According to the partial results, Likud and Kahol Lavan won each 32 out of 120 Knesset seats. Netanyahu's bloc, comprised of right-wing and ultra-Orthodox parties, currently stands at 56 seats. The center-left bloc, excluding Arab parties, has 43 seats. Avigdor Lieberman, whose Yisrael Beiteinu party is projected nine seats, is expected to be the election's kingmaker. On Wednesday morning, he reiterated his support for a "broad liberal unity government," which would include Yisrael Beiteinu, Likud and Kahol Lavan. The third largest party in the Knesset is the Joint List, an alliance of four Arab parties, with 12 seats. Ultra-Orthodox Shas has nine seats, followed closely by United Torah Judaism with eight. Ayelet Shaked's right-wing alliance Yamina has seven seats, according to the partial results, followed by Labor-Gesher with six seats and the Democratic Union with five.

    The home of Ukraine's former central bank chief has been burned to the ground, the third chilling incident involving the banker over the past few weeks.Police said in a statement Tuesday that they are investigating a suspected arson attack late Monday on the house of Valeria Gontareva outside the capital, Kyiv. An unknown assailant is said to have hurled a gasoline bomb over the fence of her property. Firefighters were unable to put out the blaze. Gontareva, who is currently a senior policy fellow at the Institute of Global Affairs in London, was also hit by a car at the end of August, and earlier that month a car registered to her daughter-in-law was set on fire in Kyiv.

    Russian border guards have detained two North Korean boats in Russian territorial waters in the Sea of Japan after one of them attacked a Russian patrol, local media cited the Federal Security Service (FSB) as saying on Tuesday.A Russian border patrol discovered two North Korean schooners and 11 motorboats fishing illegally off its far eastern coast and detained the first vessel, prompting the second one to open fire, the FSB was quoted as saying. Three Russian border guards were wounded in the incident. "Both vessels have been detained," local media cited the FSB as saying, adding later that more than 80 North Koreans had been detained. Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs called in a top North Korean diplomatic representative in Moscow over the incident and he was later seen entering the ministry, RIA news agency reported.

    As fissures within a powerful paramilitary force go public for the first time and a revolving door of top politicians consults Tehran, Iraq's fragile political balance is crumbling, analysts say, with worrying consequences for its premier.It has been a shaky 11 months for Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi's government since it was painstakingly stitched together in the prolonged wake of May 2018 elections. The administration's power rests on the curious coupling of firebrand cleric Moqtada al-Sadr with Fatah, the political arm of the Hashed al-Shaabi armed network. But a cocktail of new pressure points -- from Sadr's frustration with the Hashed to purported Israeli strikes targeting the force -- are fraying this tenuous deal, said Ihsan al-Shammari, head of the Iraqi Center for Political Thought. "The situation is messy. The political parties are repositioning themselves and the major alliances have broken apart," Shammari told AFP. He predicted the "tactical partnership" between Sadr and Fatah will collapse amid the cleric's escalating criticism of the Hashed's possession of arms and moves to create its own air force. Sadr even dramatically tweeted last week that Iraq was turning into a "rogue" state. Days later, he appeared in an unannounced visit to Iran, the influential powerbroker consulted during times of crisis in Iraq's political scene. Sadr was likely there to complain about the Hashed or lobby for more support, including having a say in selecting Iraq's next premier in case the government falls, said Shammari. Sadr would also probably use the spectre of popular protests to secure his political goals. "Sadr remains the government's biggest sponsor, but if it doesn't make progress, he'll put the possibility of protests forward -– and we're starting to see him hint at that," Shammari said.

    Newly revealed documents show that federal prosecutors under the guidance of US attorney Alex Acosta told the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office that Jeffrey Epstein was not eligible for work release. The Daily Mail reported that a December 2008 letter and other materials from then-US Attorney Alex Acosta's office arguing against Epstein's work release cited the timing of Epstein's registering as a sex offender and other administrative functions as the reason for the arrangement. Acosta's office ultimately says the decision was made by the Corrections Division of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office. The work release part of the deal stipulated that Epstein left jail to work in his private office 12 hours a day, six days a week. A November 2018 Miami Herald report probed the secretive plea deal penned by Acosta that granted Epstein's lax sentencing guidelines even though the paper said local and federal investigators looking into Epstein's suspected trafficking of minor girls had enough evidence to put him away for life in 2007. The arrangement raised a bevy of new concerns when a lawyer representing some of the women who have accused Epstein of sexual abuse said in July 2019 that Epstein committed sexual abuse during his 13-month jail term.

    Your lies are weak, I would not cage anyone, I would just eject them for invading, you would cage anyone that you were afraid of. You r position goes far beyond what is required to form and keep a stable state for the purposes of minimizing aggression, mine is a basic building block. It's a concept as old as humanity that is also observable in nature and it is fundamentally required to preserve liberty from commies and tyrants like you.

    It would never do that and even if it did it would conflict with libertarianism. LOL I advocate for the rule of law and there would be a law saying who and how many people were allowed to visit or stay, anyone complying with the law would not be expelled whether I like them or not. You are the one who wants to rule and cage people based on the whims of the monarch.

    The conscientious judges of the European Court of Human Rights published a judgement a fortnight ago which utterly exploded the version of events promulgated by Western governments and media in the case of the late Mr Magnitskiy. Yet I can find no truthful report of the judgement in the mainstream media at all. The myth is that Magnitskiy was an honest rights campaigner and accountant who discovered corruption by Russian officials and threatened to expose it, and was consequently imprisoned on false charges and then tortured and killed. A campaign over his death was led by his former business partner, hedge fund manager Bill Browder, who wanted massive compensation for Russian assets allegedly swindled from their venture. The campaign led to the passing of the Magnitskiy Act in the United States, providing powers for sanctioning individuals responsible for human rights abuses, and also led to matching sanctions being developed by the EU. However the European Court of Human Rights has found, in judging a case brought against Russia by the Magnitskiy family, that }"]the very essence of this story is untrue. They find that there was credible evidence that Magnitskiy was indeed engaged in tax fraud, in conspiracy with Browder, and he was rightfully charged. The ECHR also found there was credible evidence that Magnitskiy was indeed a flight risk so he was rightfully detained. And most crucially of all, they find that there was credible evidence of tax fraud by Magnitskiy and action by the authorities “years” before he started to make counter-accusations of corruption against officials investigating his case. This judgement utterly explodes the accepted narrative, and does it very succinctly: The applicants argued that Mr Magnitskiy’s arrest had not been based on a reasonable suspicion of a crime and that the authorities had lacked impartiality as they had actually wanted to force him to

    Those would be the citizens you want to lock up for saying things you are too afraid of to defeat on the battlefield of ideas with truth. Invaders who did not commit any other crime would simply be expelled in my country. The nation owns the territory just like many other forms of collective ownership (remember when AF asked about Ford or GM or whichever corporation it was?). As a citizen or a permitted guest you would not owe any rent because I would prohibit property taxes and head taxes in the Constitution.

    Or just lock them up and take away all their liberty. Keeping foreigners out of your territory does not make any decision about who may use land, anyone allowed in and any citizen may use any piece of land that they acquire the deed or other rights to on the open market.

    Staffers from NPR (National Public Radio) went shopping at Walmart to confirm that Trump’s tariffs are already costing American consumers a lot of money. They couldn’t hide the results: The impact is hardly noticeable. In announcing the results of a year-long study of prices at a local Walmart, NPR boldly announced: “Shoppers beware: the tariffs will bite.” The bite turned out to be a nibble. In August 2018, NPR staffers began tracking the prices on some 70 items at a Walmart store in Liberty County, Georgia, ranging from toilet paper and black beans to lightbulbs and TVs. They learned that of those 70 common everyday items, only 24 of them saw increased prices, while 12 of them saw decreased prices, and the remaining 34 had no price changes.

    The investigation into top RCMP civilian official Cameron Ortis began with a shadowy, multimillion-dollar Vancouver-based company run by Canadians that sold encrypted cellphones to drug traffickers and money launderers around the world. The key figures behind Phantom Secure Communications even used modified versions of Canada's iconic Blackberry devices to help their international criminal clientele evade police. According to a grand jury indictment filed in the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of California dated June 2017, four of the five key people behind Phantom Secure Communications were Canadian. Vincent Ramos of Richmond, B.C. was the founder and CEO and American prosecutors said he was also the company's key administrator. Security documents seen by CBC News say an FBI investigation in 2018 found Ortis had emailed Ramos. It is alleged that Ortis contacted Ramos to offer him "valuable" information. Secrets in hands of alleged RCMP spy would cause 'devastating' damage to Canada, allies: documents
