This obviously was done so that Trump would select Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State (the 2nd most powerful man in the government). Tillerson is a close friend of not only Putin, but Igor Sechin- Russia's 2nd most powerful man. I was skeptical at first until I realized that the new Secretary's initials are...wait for it...RT. I mean c'mon - we're not idiots!

In the small town of Kamienna Gora southwest of Wroclaw, 25-year-old Kamil surprised everyone when he woke up after being declared dead of cardiac arrest, several Polish media reported Saturday.
The young Pole had been at the pub, after which he felt bad after a massive intake of vodka. He went outside and collapsed shortly after, suffering from cardiac arrest. Several came rushing and called for help, at the same time it was carried out a rescue attempt. But nothing helped.
Kamil was then rushed to hospital, where despite multiple attempts they had to give up to save his life. A heart attack had hit the Pole, and they were not able to save him. Subsequently, he was taken to the mortuary, where he was placed in a refrigerator.
Later the same day a guard at the hospital heard strange noises coming from the room in the morgue with the refrigerators.

The latest discovery came from journalist Jennings Brown who tweeted that he "can't ever unsee it" after noticing the resemblance between the NYT typeface on its logo and the president-elect's hair.
Uncanny or unconvincing? Either way, it's just another in a long line of cats, shoes and waves that could be perfect stand-ins for Trump's hair if ever needed.

Yume was given to the Russian president by the governor of Japan's Akita prefecture as a three-month-old puppy four years ago, in a symbolic gesture of gratitude to Russia for its help following the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
On Tuesday, Putin was scheduled to give an interview to Nippon TV and Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper ahead of a landmark visit to Japan, and the Kremlin said that the journalists requested to check up on how well the dog was doing in her new homeland.

Taking jibes at the CIA's allegations that Russia was behind the hacking of emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, John Podesta, the internet took no prisoners over the unproven claims.

Connoisseurs of Japanese culture and tradition will know that graciously accepting free puppies is an important sign of respect in Japan, and refusing such a gift brings eternal shame to your entire family and ancient ancestors.
In 2012, Putin was wise enough to accept a female puppy, Yume, from Japan. What has changed in the last four years? Has Putin's grand ambitions for world domination gone straight to his head? This is the only logical explanation, because any normal person would eagerly accept a free puppy. Especially someone like Putin, who has a lot of free time to train small dogs to poop outside and not behind the couch, etc. etc.
Experts now say that the only way to avoid a major international conflict between Russia and Japan is for Putin to commit seppuku. See? This is why Russia is so isolated:
The Japanese government had planned to present Mr Putin, widely known to be a canine lover, with a male Akita as a "bridegroom" to Yume, a female of the same breed that Japan gave the Russian leader in 2012.The reason is obvious: Russia has no respect for diplomatic protocol. All it wants is war, war, and more war.
But a Japanese legislator said Russia had turned down the offer.
"Unfortunately, we heard from our counterparts, and our hope to present a bridegroom was dashed," House of Representatives member Koichi Hagiuda said in a blog post on Friday.
He did not give a reason for the rejection.

ISIS spokesman vows a full investigation after Russian bombers 'interfered' with the terrorist group's attack on Palmyra, killing dozens of 'moderate rebels'
News reports and Twitter updates have confirmed that Russia maliciously interfered in an unexpected ISIS offensive against the liberated Syrian city of Palmyra, forcing the terrorist group to withdraw after suffering heavy casualties Saturday evening.
In a scathing statement released after Russian aircraft vaporized dozens of ISIS fighters, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham accused Moscow of "trying to break the backs of terrorist organizations — and terrorist movements — all over the world."
There's a lady in Cuba who gets paid by the government for guarding iconic glasses on John Lennon statue
Fri, 09 Dec 2016 00:00 UTC
In 1964, Fidel Castro declared a ban on Beatles' music in Cuba, as part of his all-out war against capitalism, but the band was so popular that people steel smuggled copied of their records into the island nation. But when John Lennon became an outspoken political dissident, criticizing the United States for its involvement in foreign affairs, Castro openly embraced him, and in the year 2000, on the 20th anniversary of Lennon's death on December 8th, he even unveiled a bronze statue of the legendary musician, in the Havana park that bears his name.
The statue of John Lennon sitting on a park bench quickly became a major tourist attraction, but also a target for thieves who loved nothing more than to steal the artist's iconic round-lens glasses. In the beginning, the Government would replace the stolen accessories with new ones, but the new pair wouldn't last long. It got really old really fast, and that's when Aleeda Rodriguez Pedrasa came into the picture, as the guardian of the glasses.
Comment: Quite the testament to Lennon's ideals, outspokenness and speaking truth to power.

President Barack Obama ordered intelligence agencies to review cyber attacks and foreign intervention into the 2016 US election and deliver a report before he left office, and was astounded at what the civilian foreign intelligence service of the United States federal government found.
"The Russians are to blame for everything wrong with America today," Mr. Obama pointed out, reading from a ten page report into the CIA findings, "We didn't know until now how much the Russian's have influenced this whole planet over the last 50 years. Thankfully the CIA have accumulated all this evidence in just a matter of weeks, which is an incredible feat considering how long they took to find Osama Bin Laden, who we now believe was also backed by Russia".

The Russians are breeding giant, venomous, shapeshifting squids that will be deposited in lakes and waterways all over North America, according to a prestigious British tabloid.
Like the sinister James Bond villain that he is and always will be, Russian President Vladimir Putin is always on the lookout for random objects and abstract concepts to "weaponize".
For readers who have lost track: Putin has already weaponized Syrian refugees, his own popularity, cockroaches, Judo, midlife crises, defense cuts, and Photoshop, among many, many others.
And now he has weaponized sea creatures.
