After the federal Bureau of Land Management agents backed down from their intimidating stance at the Bundy Ranch last weekend, ample evidence has surfaced indicating the standoff between the government and the Nevada ranching family is far from over. Throughout the weeklong stalemate, members of the Bundy family were physically assaulted by armed officers, numerous cows were shot dead, and protesters faced threats of gunfire for merely expressing their outrage.

Immediately after what many considered a victory against a tyrannical federal agency, a number of leftist voices – most notably, Sen. Harry Reid – indicated the action against this family will continue.

In response, Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman sent a letter to Barack Obama, Department of the Interior Sec. Sally Jewell, and BLM Director Neil Kornze, laying out his position that any such action by the agency would violate the U.S. Constitution.

“Because of this standoff,” he wrote, “I have looked into BLM’s authority to conduct such paramilitary raids against American citizens, and it appears that BLM is acting in a lawless manner in Nevada.”

CIA Director John Brennan’s recent secret visit to Ukraine carried a warning from US President Barack Obama to Russian President Vladimir Putin about possible future confrontation between the two former Cold War rivals, an analyst says.

Leslie H. Gelb wrote in a column in the Daily Beast that the US officials have concluded that they need to “ratchet up possible penalties to get Putin’s attention” over Ukraine.

“Foremost, the trip (by Brennan) was conceived as a message to Putin - that he should start contemplating the unhappy possibility that a Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine might well face a guerrilla war like the nightmarish one that drained Soviet forces in Afghanistan decades ago,” wrote the columnist.

After Brennan’s weekend visit to Kiev was leaked, the White House described it as “part of a trip to Europe,” saying, “We don’t normally comment on the CIA director’s travel.”

Gelb said Brennan’s talks with Ukrainian officials in Kiev were “some actual covert action in the offing.”

Kiev cuts water supplies to Crimea: Crimea deputy PM

Russia needs to sweep in and take the lot now.

One has to question what such a regime is to cut off the water. It is not about money but weaponizing water. It shows the depths to which the current regime has fallen.

As I am sure they would howl if their gas was cut off but to cut off the water is fine? The building block of human life! Why the rest of Europe even wants such parties in the EU is questionable.

Crimean First Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Temirgaliyev says Kiev reduced water supplies to the peninsula by three times and called on Ukrainian authorities to reconsider the decision.

On Monday, Temirgaliyev said Kiev reduced water supplies to Crimea on the North Crimean Canal from 50 cubic meters per second to 16 cubic meters per second, ITAR-TASS reported.

He also said that the Crimean government had prevented the authorities in Kiev from cutting off all water by finding a technical solution.

“The officials in Kiev should seriously moot over what they are doing by cutting off water supplies on the North Crimean canal. Such actions are arousing bewilderment, to put it mildly. I believe that everything will get back to normal, and these people will be brought to responsibility for issuing criminal orders, including to Ukraine’s Committee for Water Management,” Temirgaliyev said.

He flatly denied Ukrainian leaders’ allegations that Crimea has not paid for its water, noting that Crimea had met the leaders’ requirements and handed over all the necessary documents for concluding a water supply contract to Ukraine’s Kherson region last Saturday.

4 Things You’ll Feel Right Before a Heart Attack

Before you get your Public Dinar Conversion Rates you may need this.

When your body tries to tell you something, how well do you listen?

With many health issues, your body sends out signals that something has gone awry. Of course, listening to your body when it complains that you just ate too much spicy food or you have a minor cold coming on may not be of life-shattering importance.

However, when it comes to your heart, listening to your body is crucial — because ignoring or misinterpreting these bodily signals can be deadly.

In fact, researchers at Duke University Medical Center have recently determined that unrecognized myocardial infarctions (or “silent” heart attacks, in layman’s terms) are much more common than physicians had previously suspected. And unfortunately, they note these silent heart attacks carry a very high risk of death.

Studies indicate that about 200,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year without even realizing it. These unrecognized heart attacks account for about one-fourth of all heart attacks, making this a serious public health issue.

A new oil field with roughly 300 million tons of oil and 90 billion cubic meters of gas has been discovered in the Astrakhan region of Russia.

“The field’s reserves are unprecedented, this discovery confirms the high potential of the Astrakhan region in terms of these major discoveries,” Sergey Donskoy, Russia’s Natural Resources Minister said on Wednesday.

The field, called “Velikoe” (The Great) was discovered by the AFB Oil and Gas Company, which will likely seek out larger partners to develop it.

Two likely candidates are Rosneft, Russia’s state-owned and largest producer, and Lukoil, the country’s second biggest producer.

"According to experts, given the lack of large land deposits, project participation will likely come from all major industry players. The most probable partners are Rosneft and Lukoil, which already have projects in neighboring regions,” Uralsib Capital analyst Aleksey Kokin told mail.ru.
