Some of us don't accept that, Sanders said. Zinke continued outlining his plan to address Native American issues before addressing issues regarding the handling of federal public lands—his chief responsibility if he is confirmed as the secretary of the interior. The VA has been embroiled in scandal since it was revealed that the agency had covered up lengthy delays in treatment that led to the deaths of veterans awaiting care at a Phoenix hospital. The whistleblower reports about Arizona' fake wait list led to additional exposés about inefficiencies and budgetary issues that have contributed to the deaths of American veterans. It was revealed in November that a VA hospital had infected or exposed 600 veterans to Hepatitis B and C, as well as HIV—the disease that leads to AIDs—due to poor dental care . This is not the first time that Sanders has defended the VA in spite of reports of the agency failing veterans.

Hot on the heels of revealing that Google is planning to launch Android Wear 2.0 on Feb. 9 , a VentureBeat report by Evan Blass has now completely removed the veil from Google’s first wearables. According to the ever-reliable tipster, the watches will be made by LG and are set to make their debut in a matter of weeks alongside the release of the new OS. Much as Apple sells two sizes of its watch, Google and LG are reportedly set to release Sport and Style variations of their new wearable, with the latter aimed at smaller wrists. According to the report, the larger model will clock in at 1.38 inches and sport a 480x480 screen, as compared to the Style’s 1.2-inch, 360x360 display. Additionally, Blass reports that the Sport will also have 768MB of RAM, (versus 512MB on the Style), as well as a much larger 430mAh battery, compared to 240mAh on the smaller model.

The 9/11 tragedy rocked the United States, and certainly the world. But while many people have accepted the official stance that it was a terrorist attack, too much information has been revealed over the years to push aside alternative viewpoints as mere conspiracy theories. The questions must be asked: Why wouldn't the Pentagon release other security tapes shot outside of the Pentagon? And why would they confiscate video footage from the gas station across the street on that fateful day? And the video from the Sheritan National Hotel, too? How about the multiple reports of ongoing explosions that people reported at the World Trade Center prior to the planes striking? Why did those get dismissed? There are just too many questions, too much information that wasn't given a second thought, to not at least acknowledge that a cover-up is a credible reality.

S. Democratic Party and some influential Republicans have been accusing Mr. Trump of being, essentially, a Russian agent and a grave threat to U.S. national security — much like, in the 1950s, the far-right John Birch Society and U.S. Senator Joseph R. McCarthy had accused U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower of being ‘soft on communism’ if not outright pro-Soviet and a traitor in the White House. The anonymous blogger who goes by the name of “Moon of Alabama” or “bernhard,” has been issuing most of the important news-reports about the Syrian war, especially concerning these developing events in Der Zor. On 11 December 2016, I headlined Obama & Erdogan Move ISIS from Iraq to Syria, to Weaken Assad” , and reported, based upon earlier reports from “bernhard”, and from Turkey’s government, and other sources, that the U.S.-coalition (the Saudi-led) plan for ousting ISIS from Mosul in Iraq had been to force the ISIS jihadists in Mosul Iraq to choose between either being killed there, or else continuing their jihad by relocating themselves westward to Der Zor in Syria , and retaking for ISIS that city, by conquering the Syrian government’s forces there.

According to the Army Recognition website , the Avenger AN/TWQ-1 Air Defense System vehicle is a missile mounted system which provides mobile, short-range air defense protection for ground units against cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, low-flying fixed-wing aircraft, and helicopters. The AN/TWQ-1 missile system has been around since the 1980s, however, it has recently been equipped with a “High energy laser weapon used to neutralize small unmanned air vehicles. Also neutralized unexploded ordnance at standoff distance.” What possible reason could police and military have to justify the use of a short-range missile defense system against unarmed protesters trying to protect a native American water supply? Yes, there have been people filming the area with drones. However, there have been zero reports of police or anyone else being injured by a drone.
