1…………..> The Russian Bear: UK
Britain’s Royal Air Force scrambled two fighter jets to intercept Russian bombers near UK airspace, deploying Typhoon aircraft from the Lossiemouth base in Scotland as two Tupolev TU-160 Blackjack bombers approached Britain.
“The Russian aircraft were initially monitored by a variety of friendly nation fighters and subsequently intercepted by the RAF in the North Sea,” the air force said.
“At no point did the Russian aircraft enter sovereign UK airspace.”
Two Belgian F-16 jets from a base at Florennes were also sent to intercept the Russian planes, according to Belgian media.
The incident is one of several in recent years as Russian military planes test NATO and British air defences.

A Perris, California police officers were “shocked” to discover that seven of thirteen people held captive in a debilitated house, including some “shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks” were actually adults aged between 18 and 29.
“The victims appeared to be malnourished and very dirty,” police stated after one of the victims managed to escape and call the emergency number “from a cellular device she found inside the house”, according to the Riverside Sheriff’s Department. David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were held on charges of torture and child endangerment.
3…………> El Santo Padre Welcome: Chile
Pope Francis has arrived in Chile,welcomed by Chilean President Michelle Bachelet after he touched down at Santiago’s international airport.
With than 500,000 people lining the streets to greet him, waving Chilean flags and chanting “Viva Papa Francisco” expected to attend an open-air Mass in Santiago, the pope is then due to travel to Temuco, south of Santiago, and to the northern city of Iquique, before heading to Peru on Thursday.
The pope is expected to use his trip to draw attention to the plight of immigrants and the persecuted indigenous Mapuche community, the victims of General Pinochet’s brutal 1973-1990 military dictatorship, and finally the thorny issue of priest sex abuse, all along shielded by a massive security operation involving 18,000 police, 20 aircraft and seven drones for the pontiff’s visit.
Pope Francis says he is ‘very afraid’ of nuclear war as he shows reporters aboard his plane a photo of a Nagasaki victim.

6…………> Lies On Top Distortions On Top of More Lies: US Politics
Why all the fuss about President Trump “unfortunate” and “racist” remark that many of Caribbean and African countries that send hundreds of thousands of migrants to US are “shitholes”? Not really much, since in fact they are indeed very poor and debilitated countries that have been raised to nearly “divine” status by the previous US administration whose leader, our 1st Muslim President, Grand AyatollahBarack Obama admitted that he had no constitutional authority (“I’m president, I’m not king”) to grant amnesties. Yet during his campaign for reelection in 2012 he created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals(DACA) program, which granted a temporary reprieve from deportation to young people brought to this country as minors.
