Top National Security (state) Officials admit US backing of unsuccessful coup attempt against Turkish PM Erdogan.
Specifically, Zbigniew Brzezinski expressed his disapproval of how Victoria Nuland pulled this, and botched it badly, worsening the US position with Turkey, rather than fixing everything through more murder.
This really opens a front against the neocon establishment within the highest ranks of imperial elites. Brzezinski wrote in April that history has passed the moment when one power could take over and form a "unipolar world". It was he who famously observed that opportunity in 1997.
The global war on terror and yo mama didn't work.

“They’re both using shock tactics, just each in their own way,” the Russian president said in an interview. “I don’t think they are setting the best example.”
Bernie Sanders says something that matters, after a rather long hiatus.

The warning in the covering letter to the UK government could not be clearer. It says: “Japanese businesses with their European headquarters in the UK may decide to transfer their head-office function to continental Europe if EU laws cease to be applicable in the UK after its withdrawal.” (More devilish details to Brexit)
Half the life forms on earth will be extinct by 2050. (Shall we join them?)
