Jim W. Dean -I am still waiting to see why no one is interested in finding out who helped themselves to the Shah’s looted billions kept in foreign banks.
Jim W. Dean – News on this kind of technology does not always meet the public eye like this, especially if it has military applications which could give some a huge advantage that a powerful nation does not want others to have.
Jim W. Dean – My first Press TV Debate show with a major jihdai was with Britain’s Anjem Choudary back on October 21, 2013. I thought I had died and gone to heaven, but his recent conviction was even better.
Jim W. Dean – Henry Kamens presents the best case for NATO countries to sit down and start all over from scratch. because NATO has become more of a security threat to the block than its claimed protector role.
Jim W. Dean – This is all going to be much ado about nothing. Someone is really scraping the bottom going after these past staff associations and business deals to get something against the candidate… a little mud splattered maybe?

Jim W. Dean – The rational way to handle this some kind of sharing program on the natural resources. But China, with its huge population is not about to end up on the short end of the stick.
Jim W. Dean – This story is a tempest in a teapot for two reasons. Russia can do just fine with the US locking itself out of the Russian market. Plus, presidents have a wide hand when it comes to foreign policy.
Jim W. Dean – We are seeing a carefully rolled out and shepherded presentation of the “process” involved in Turkey’s geopolitical realignment. Nothing is promised or hyped, but change is definitely in the air.
Jim W. Dean – The big question now is will Erdogan keep supplies flowing from Turkey, with Iran and Russia not saying a word in protest, which so far they have not.

Jim W. Dean – Phil Butler has what I call an ice cold bucket of water piece for you below, the down and dirty on one of the most dangerous public “fixers” of our time, the man that refuses to die and join his victims, George Soros.
Jim W. Dean – There is nothing quite like live fire training, and the Russian Tupolev bombers are certainly getting that, perfecting their pinpoint strike capability with the help of their GPS-guided bombs,

Jim W. Dean – What we have here are two opposite polls, where the terror attacks received disproportionate coverage, and the politically correctness red line crimes get little or none.
Jim W. Dean – It is unusual that a high-level corruption battle like this one in Iraq would go public in such a major way, but it gives us a rare view into the belly of the beast.
Jim W. Dean – The think tanks are coming out to spin a possible US coalition loss of Aleppo as a Cold War loss on the Democrats part to set the stage for “more defense spending” needed and assured by a Republican presidential victory in November.
