“South Dakota taking down Putin and The Russian economy!”
South Dakota has very little effect on global oil prices (because it’s illegal for them to export it):
“Falling oil prices are slowing down the shale boom, that’s true enough. But the infrastructure of oil refining in the US is also adding to that downward pressure and thus the shrinking of activity. For that refining industry is largely set up to deal with heavy, sour, crudes and what is being produced by the shale industry is largely light and sweet crudes. But it’s illegal to export that light sweet crude to where it can be usefully processed. Thus prices are, internally in the US depressed over and above what is happening on the world market.”

“Why did you think they wanted Chrimea the way they did.”
Both the Ottoman muslims and the Nazis have been trying to take Crimea for nearly 175 years:
1. The Ottoman Empire declared war on Russia in October 1853 and suffered a major defeat that gave Russia control of the Black Sea. The Russian threat to the Ottoman Empire required control of the Black Sea, and the key was the Russian naval base at Sevastopol, on the Crimean peninsula.
2. “The siege of Sevastopol lasted for more than 250 days. It fell in 1942, to be liberated from the Nazis by the Red Army two years later. Eyewitnesses say the Germans defended relentlessly, unwilling to give up this important port.”
Putin would be crazy to give Crimea back to the muslims or the Nazis.

It’s the same script that was used for the Soviet War in Afghanistan nearly 30 years ago:
1. turn the bin Laden gang loose against the Soviet Army in order to exact an economic toll:
“We, alongside the mujahedeen, bled Russia for 10 years until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat,” bin Laden said.
“The Russian president is also said to have commented “Our stance on Assad will never change. We believe that the Syrian regime is the best speaker on behalf of the Syrian people, and not those liver eaters.” referring to the rebels.
“Could someone tell me exactly what a “large land-mass war” is.”
The current Eurasian theater of war stretches all the way from The Balkans to Afghanistan.

“There were WMDs. Many, many thousands…”
George W. Bush states in his 2010 book that no WMD’s were ever found in Iraq:
“Still, I knew the failure to find WMD would transform public perception of the war. While was undoubtedly safer with Saddam gone, the reality was that I had sent American troops into combat based in large part on intelligence that proved false.
That was a massive blow to our credibility –my credibility– that would shake the confidence of the American people.
Re: "Saudi Arabia is THE weapon that the United States used to trigger the collapse of the Soviet Union"
I agree that falling oil prices in the 1980s were a big blow to the Soviet Union, but did the US really use Saudi Arabia as a "weapon" in that? Or was Saudi Arabia worried that high oil prices would drive exploration for more oil, subsidies for synthetic oil, and wider deployment of nuclear? Saudi Arabia has done well by the lowered oil price in the 1980's.
The purpose of the navy and the marines is to "keep sea lanes and trade routes open" for the interest of the United States. Oil is part of that. So is Nike shoes made in Korea, gold and silver, bananas and mangos.
The communist in the democrat party use ideological weapons to take freedoms from Americans on behalf of the enemies of the United States.

Ron Paul predictions always have a bad habit of coming true:
“The trade deficit last year was over $728 billion. A $2 trillion war is raging, and plans are being laid to expand the war into Iran and possibly Syria. The only restraining force will be the world’s rejection of the dollar.” -Ron Paul, House of Representatives, February 15, 2006

“Instead, U.S. forces discovered munitions that had been manufactured before 1991, possibly leading the government to not disclose the findings.”
Saddam’s chemical weapons were supposed to have already been destroyed in 1991 though:
“As I report to you, air attacks are under way against military targets in Iraq. We are determined to knock out Saddam Hussein’s nuclear bomb potential. We will also destroy his chemical weapons facilities. Much of Saddam’s artillery and tanks will be destroyed.”
-President George H.W. Bush, Transcript of the Comments by Bush on the Air Strikes Against the Iraqis, January 17, 1991
Just to provide some information, the officer is paid and rightfully so, while the investigation is done. Once it is over and the decision is made as to his disciplinary action then he will lose his pay if suspended without pay or if he is fired. For example lets say the entire process lasts one week and the officer is suspended for two. He is paid for the week of administrative leave at first, but then the two week suspension would include is one week of admin leave, thus ultimately he is not paid for that week of admin leave.

“Federal government will place federal police that will answer to DC and not the towns, cities, counties, or state.”
That already happened long ago though….
What do you think the “War on Drugs” is for?….
DC passes out free money and military equipment to local police in exchange for their loyalty:
“The reason is simple: If he steps up his pursuit of marijuana growers, his department is eligible for roughly half a million dollars a year in federal anti-drug funding, helping save some jobs. The majority of the funding would have to be used to fight pot. Marijuana may not be the county’s most pressing crime problem, the sheriff says, but “it’s where the money is.”
Kid, One of your very few comments that I have seen that I truly do agree with.

On Oct. 7, 1571, the united fleet of Christendom “risked all against the vast military hordes of the Ottoman Empire” off the coast of Greece, he said.
Hasn’t the west always needed the Ottoman muslims to help them defeat the Russians and the Christians though?:
“The Crimean War (October 1853 – February 1856) was a conflict in which Russia lost to an alliance of France, Britain, the Ottoman Empire, and Sardinia.
The immediate cause involved the rights of Christian minorities in the Holy Land, which was controlled by the Ottoman Empire.” Crimean War (1853 – 1857)

Civil forfeiture is yet another method to protect the delicate fractional reserve banking system…
It’s a way to ‘encourage’ you to maintain all your reserves of cash in electronic form:
“Many U.S. banks were forced to shut down during the Great Depression because so many people attempted to withdraw assets at the same time. Today there are many safeguards in place to prevent such an instance from occurring again, but the fractional-reserve banking system remains in place.”

Netanyahu criticized the efforts of six world powers to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, saying: “To defeat ISIS and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear power is to win the battle and lose the war.”
Didn’t Netanyahu say earlier that both ISIS and Iran should be left alone to duke it out with one another though?:
The guy is a WAR-CRIMINAL. He and all other Israeli leaders should be arrested and presented in front of the International Criminal Court.
Quote from your article:
""Don't strengthen either of them. Weaken both," Netanyahu said."
In other words, they're going to fought it out anyways so don't interfere.

Warfare hasn’t changed much at all in the past 300 years, has it?….
A lesson in Destabilization 101 (courtesy of America’s Founding Fathers):
“He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.” Declaration Of Independence (July 4, 1776)

I’ve never missed Ronald Reagan more than I have this year!
Reagan was attempting to bury the hatchet with Iran in order to prevent it from falling into the hands of the Soviet Union:
“As the Tower board reported, what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated, in its implementation, into trading arms for hostages. This runs counter to my own beliefs, to administration policy, and to the original strategy we had in mind. There are reasons why it happened, but no excuses. It was a mistake. I undertook the original Iran initiative in order to develop relations with those who might assume leadership in a post-Khomeini government.” -Ronald Wilson Reagan, Address To The Nation On Iran-Contra (March 4, 1987)
