Early on Christmas Day as the nocturnal Russia Analyst prepared for bed, we read the God-awful news: a Russian military Tupolev 154 airliner had crashed off the Black Sea coast of Sochi, in southern Russia. The #Tu154 had 92 souls on board, 84 passengers and eight crew.
As of Monday, December 26, Russian government sources are seeking to damper speculation that a bomb on board may have brought down the jet. But questions linger as to how a single or even catastrophic engine failure or explosion could've brought the aircraft down so quickly, without an apparent distress call. Or how a highly experienced crew which included a pilot who had safely landed after a potentially disastrous Tu-154 somersault on approach a few years ago could've committed a fatal error. Coming as it does just days after a Russian ambassador was assassinated in front of an APTN cameraman in Ankara, Turkey, the question of whether this was a dirty deep state enemy action looms in the minds of individuals like my friend, The Saker.

Thanks to Russian and Iranian (including Lebanese Shi'a Hezbollah, who have established a Christian auxiliary in recent years!) support for the Syrian Arab Army, for the first time in four years, Aleppo residents both Christian and Muslim can celebrate the birth of Christ without fear of being shelled by jihadist 'rebel hell cannons'.
It's my hope and prayer that with the transition coming on January 20, 2017, the previously hijacked and now ridiculous U.S. State Department will finally stand with the persecuted Christians of Syria -- not with their so-called 'moderate' takfiri tormentors and killers.
What an incredible time to be alive. Thank you RogueMoney readers around the world for all your readership, comments, support and prayers for us. - JWS
As the Russia Analyst, V and the team of contributors predicted here at RogueMoney, the push by Big Hollywood B and C list actors, George Soros (G)NGOs and the Democrats' presstitute propaganda machine failed miserably. These once mighty and now collapsing legacy media forces could not persuade all but a tiny majority of Electoral College delegates to change their vote. In the end on December 19th only two Republican delegates from Texas, one of them (Chris Suprun) an accused 9/11 stolen valor case and general sleazebag, followed through on threats not to back Trump.
On the Democratic side, the efforts by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's daughter Christine Pelosi to make electors switch their votes or demand an intelligence briefing on Russia's alleged hacking of the election before following through backfired. In yet another sign of just how many millions of Democrats couldn't stand the entitled 'it's my turn' Hillary, four Washington State delegates wrote in Colin Powell and Faith Spotted Eagle of the Yankton Sioux Nation. One Dem delegate from Hawaii backed Bernie Sanders, the Vermont socialist that Hillary blames Russian hackers and Wikileaks for exposing how she cheated out of the Democratic nomination. Another Democrat from Maine tried to back Bernie only to be told he could not do so by law in his state.

“For every boot that tramped in battle, every cloak rolled in blood, will be burned as fuel for flames. For a child is born to us, a son is given...and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace...” Isaiah 9 From Team Rogue … Continue reading Merry Christmas from Team Rogue Money!
