Russian Defense Ministry denies BBC report on capture of Russian serviceman in Ukraine

Russia's Defense Ministry has refuted the BBC reports on the alleged capture of "Russian serviceman" Viktor Ageev in the Lugansk Region.

"Viktor Ageev has never served in Russia's Armed Forces under contract. According to the records of the Russian Defense Ministry, Ageev conducted compulsory military service in the Russian Armed Forces, which he left in accordance with the established procedure in May 2016. Information that Viktor Ageev rejoined the Russian Armed Forces under contract was made up by Ukrainian agitators," the ministry reported.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the second page of Ageev's military card contains a note that he left service in May 2016. "The military card could also contain a note that Ageev rejoined the Russian Armed Forces under contract, but Ukrainian intelligence agencies failed to write it there out of ignorance," the ministry stressed.

Earlier, the Russian BBC service reported, quoting the Ukrainian Defense Ministry and the command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces 93rd separate mechanized brigade, that Russian Viktor Ageev, who, allegedly, was conscripted in the Altay Region and served under contract, had been captured in the Lugansk Region.

Insiders: White House threatened Syria while Trump yawned and focused on fake news

Tillerson secretly warned the Russians, and Kushner and Bannon were consulted before the White House rattled its saber. But the commander in chief was consumed with 'fake news.'

Hours before the White House issued an ominous warning to Syria's dictator against launching another chemical assault, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave the same message to Bashar Assad's patron in Moscow, The Daily Beast has learned.

According to a knowledgeable senior administration official, Tillerson warned his counterpart, Sergei Lavrov: the U.S. sees that Russia and Syria may be prepping for another chemical weapons attack; and that there will be consequences if Assad follows through with it.

All this occurred this week as President Donald Trump displayed what two White House officials characterized as relative indifference and passivity towards the subject, instead opting to focus his public and private energies towards fuming at his domestic enemies in the Democratic Party and the "fake news."

"The president cares more about CNN and the Russia story than [Syria] at the moment," one official observed.

Land of the "free": Americans' satisfaction with their freedom is dropping

America is often referred to as the "Land of the Free," but as citizens prepare to celebrate the Fourth of July, their satisfaction with the country's freedom is significantly lower than it was a decade ago, according to a newly released Gallup poll.

The survey found that although 91 percent of Americans were satisfied with the freedom in their lives in 2006, only 75 percent feel the same way today.

Furthermore, while the US ranked 11th worldwide (out of 118 countries) in the 2006 Gallup poll, it came in 71st (among 139 countries) in the current poll.

"This puts the US in the bottom half of all countries measured," Gallup managing partner Jon Clifton wrote on the organization's blog.

The US decline is unique, as such results are not happening in other wealthy democracies.

FBI Agent Indicted for Lying About the Killing of Lavoy Finicum

An FBI agent has been indicted and now stands accused of deliberately covering up the truth about the killing of Lavoy Finicum.

Late Tuesday evening, it was announced that an unnamed FBI agent involved in the killing of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum has been indicted. The agent is accused of lying about shooting at Finicum in 2016 when officers arrested the leaders of an occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in rural Oregon.

In March of 2016, it was announced that multiple FBI agents were under investigation for their role in the death of Finicum. For over a year, Finicum's family has waited for answers, and on Tuesday night, they received a glimpse into the corruption surrounding the death of their beloved father and husband.

An FBI agent now faces allegations of making false statements with the intent of obstructing justice. According to reports, he is to be named on Wednesday.

US-backed coup of Iran in 1953 reveals true colors of so-called "indispensable nation"

Of the many crimes committed by Washington and its faithful British satrapy around the world, the coup that toppled the democratically-elected prime minister of Iran, Mohammad Mossadeq, in 1953 is among the most grievous.

The recent release of a tranche of declassified CIA documents, including memos covering the period, are a timely reminder not only of the staggering mendacity of both countries in asserting the right to lecture the world about democracy and human rights, but the extent to which they have wrought so much damage and devastation throughout their respective histories.

Operation Ajax, the name by which the sordid plan to undermine and topple Muhammad Mossadeq's government is known, was undertaken in response to Mossadeq's decision to nationalize Iran's oil resources with a view to husbanding the revenue for the benefit of the Iranian people, rather than allow it to continue to be sucked out of the country by the then British state-owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) - forerunner of today's global oil conglomerate BP.

Nobel Laureate physicist Brian Josephson "80%" confident in intelligent design

This is new to me. Brian Josephson is a Welsh physicist and 1973 Nobel laureate who estimates his confidence in intelligent design at about 80 percent. It comes up on in an interview with host Robert Lawrence Kuhn for the PBS series Closer to Truth. Click [here] to go there.

Given the choice between ID, theistic evolution, and unguided or "random" evolution, Dr. Josephson opts for intelligent design:



I believe that intelligence may play a role in how evolution has occurred. One of the big mistakes of those who attack intelligent design is to regard evolution and God as mutually exclusive, so they say that someone who believes in intelligent design doesn't believe in evolution, but that's not the case. Also, I'd say science has disappeared into something political, really, as the statement that "creationism disguised as science" is a totally false view of what's happened.



He distinguishes between ID and Young Earth Creationism, saying that while ID proponents may hold religious beliefs, those do not determine their scientific conclusions:



We may have these [religious] beliefs but let's see what science can tell us, and that's what intelligent design is, it isn't "creationism in disguise" at all.
