    American Decline: Chinese forces head to Syria to join with Russia in filling Obama's power vacuum and purportedly fight the Islamic State. A false move involving NATO member Turkey could mean world war.

    Russian and Chinese military sources now confirm that Chinese warships are en route to the Middle East to get in on some of the action of humiliating the U.S.

    In just a week and a half, Moscow has upended the dynamics of power in the Mideast by taking on the role that President Obama relinquished: acting like a superpower in a regional conflict that has implications extending far beyond the region.

    Russian ruler Vladimir Putin launched airstrikes against rebels opposing the terrorist Assad regime in Syria, first with a modest force to gauge the U.S. response and perhaps pull out if threatened. Seeing no threat, Putin has been intensifying Russian operations, even sending in Spetsnaz special forces troops.

    China's entry means two major powers are stepping in to do what the U.S. was unwilling to do against IS.

    DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday banned any further negotiations between Iran and the United States, putting the breaks on moderates hoping to end Iran's isolation after reaching a nuclear deal with world powers in July.

    Khamenei, the highest authority in the Islamic Republic, already said last month there would be no more talks with the United States after the nuclear deal, but has not previously declared an outright ban.

    His statements directly contradict those of moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who says his government is ready to hold talks with the United States on how to resolve the conflict in Syria, where the two countries back opposing sides.

    "Negotiations with the United States open gates to their economic, cultural, political and security influence. Even during the nuclear negotiations they tried to harm our national interests.," Khamenei was quoted as saying on his website.

    "Our negotiators were vigilant but the Americans took advantage of a few chances," he said.

    Although he supported the last 18 months of negotiations, Khamenei has not publicly endorsed the nuclear agreement with the United States, Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia that settled a standoff of more than a decade.

    The West feared Iran wanted to develop nuclear weapons, suspicions Tehran denies.

    The agreement, which curbs Iran's nuclear program in exchange for crippling sanctions being lifted, was welcomed by Iranians who are keen to see their living standards improve and better relations with the rest of the world.

    It was also a great political victory for Rouhani and his faction in Iran ahead of some key elections next year and as such has deepened the divide in Iran's complex power structure between moderates and hardliners.


    In his address to Revolutionary Guards Navy commanders, Khamenei said talks with the United States brought only disadvantages to Iran.

    "Through negotiations Americans seek to influence Iran ... but there are naive people in Iran who don't understand this," Khamenei was quoted as saying to the IRGC commanders, who are also running much of Iran's military involvement in Syria.

    Hundreds of Iranian troops arrived in Syria last month, sources told Reuters, where they will join government forces and their Lebanese Hezbollah allies in a major ground offensive backed by Russian air strikes.

    The West dispute the aims of Russia's air campaign, which is causing friction between Moscow and NATO.

    "We are in a critical situation now as the enemies are trying to change the mentality of our officials and our people on the revolution and our national interests," Khamenei told the Guards.

    Khamenei often invokes an unspecified "enemy" when talking about Western powers, particularly the United States and Israel, which he suspects of plotting to overthrow the Islamic Republic.

    His comments might invigorate the hardline lawmakers seeking the impeachment of Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif over shaking hands with U.S. President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

    "On and off the record, it was an accident," Zarif said in an interview with New Yorker on Tuesday.

    "It has already cost me at home. But everything I do costs me at home, so this is not an aberration."

  • Bad news for New Yorkers, thanks to ObamaCare: More than 100,000 policyholders just learned that their Health Republic insurance plans will be canceled on Dec. 31. The start-up insurer (spun off from the Freelancers’ Union) is hemorrhaging red ink and has to close down.
    That’s unfortunate for the policyholders, who now have to scramble to find other coverage and try to keep their doctors.
    But even worse is the abuse of taxpayers across the country: Congress loaned a whopping $2.5 billion of taxpayers’ money to Health Republic of New York and 22 other boondoggle insurance co-ops, even after being warned by its own budget experts that many co-ops would fail and not repay the loans. How carelessly politicians spend other people’s money.
    If anything, the experts’ warnings were understated. Across the nation, 21 out of the 23 co-ops are either shut down already or losing money. And it’s your money going down the rathole.
    The Obama administration itself labeled six of the co-ops in critical condition. Too bad it refuses to disclose which ones: Policyholders deserve as much warning as possible that their insurance may be on the rocks.
    Thank the left-wingers in Congress and the Obama White House who concocted this scheme back in 2010 for this mess.
    Abhorring for-profit insurance companies, they insisted that the Affordable Care Act establish nonprofit insurance cooperatives to compete with big players like Aetna and Humana.
    Preposterously, the Obama administration specified that the co-ops be run by novices with no history of ties to the insurance industry. As if measuring risk and pricing policies is something that requires no expertise.
    Obama administration rules also barred the start-ups from spending money on advertising or marketing to make their products known. Why? Because the left has always blamed the high cost of health insurance on ad spending. It was a formula for failure.
    A wacky ideological agenda doomed these co-ops from the start.
    The New York co-op’s collapse is an especially humiliating defeat for the Freelancers’ Union and Sara Horowitz, its self-proclaimed labor visionary, who has spent years touting the benefits of the collectivist “sharing economy.” But make no mistake: Taxpayers and policyholders nationwide are taking a hit.
    All across the country, loans went to Obama cronies from his pre-presidential career as a community activist. During the fall of 2012, as his first term neared its end, Obama shoveled out money to these experimental start-ups.
    Remember the outrage over the failed green energy project Solyndra? That only cost taxpayers $500 million — a fifth of what they could be forced to pay for the co-op folly.
    The losses are racking up. A co-op in Vermont closed in 2013. Iowa’s CoOpportunity Health collapsed in January, taking $145 million in federal loans with it.
    Louisiana’s Health Cooperative shut down in July, after a steady stream of red ink. And in August, Nevada’s co-op announced it will close up by Jan. 1. It had $65.9 million in federal loans on its books.
    A July inspector general’s report warns that several remaining co-ops are tottering. Yet the media are almost silent.
    That’s especially regrettable: Policyholders should be warned that they may have to switch plans (and doctors) in the future. And the public should get a straight story about how its tax dollars are going up in smoke.
    During the wrangling in Congress over Obama’s health law, the co-ops became the consolation prize for lawmakers dreaming of socialist health care, also called a single-payer plan. There’s a lesson here, though some people refuse to accept it.
    A Health Republic executive suggested that the co-ops are failing because a “bitterly partisan Congress” provided less funding than they actually needed. No, more funding would have resulted in more taxpayer money down the drain.
    When you want to solve a complex problem like increasing access to health care and controlling costs, look to the marketplace, not the ivory-tower wonks and community activists whose hubris is rivaled only by their lack of practical knowledge.

    Police in Las Vegas had an unidentified man in custody after he allegedly walked up to a pair of officers sitting at a stoplight early Sunday afternoon and began firing into their marked SUV.

    The alleged shooter, armed with a semi-automatic handgun, fired "multiple rounds" into the vehicle and struck one officer in the hand, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Sgt. John Sheahan said.

    The injured officer's partner chased the suspect and caught him in the parking lot of a nearby 7-Eleven convenience store, Sheahan said. The officers didn't fire any shots, but the assailant's gun was recovered.

    The injured officer, who was not identified, was taken to a nearby hospital and was reported in good condition, Sheahan said

  • ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis County police say an 11-year-old boy fatally shot a 16-year-old intruder during a home invasion, but some neighbors take issue with that account.

    Police believe two suspects had tried to break into the modest ranch-style home two times earlier in the day. On the third try, they were able to enter through the front door, Schellman said. There were no signs of forced entry.

    Soon after the 16-year-old entered, the 11-year-old fired a single shot that struck him in the head, Schellman said. The teenager's body was found in the front foyer, and Schellman said the shot may have scared away the second suspect, who was taken into custody a short time later. Schellman said that suspect, 22, was still in custody Friday, but has not been charged.

    Some neighbors told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that they witnessed the shooting and there was no break-in.

    Donna Jackson told the newspaper that she saw the 11-year-old shoot the 16-year-old at point-blank range as they talked near front door.

    "It was not a break-in," Jackson, 45, said. "He shot him in the head."

    Jazmyne Clark, 18, who lives two doors down from the shooting, said the 11-year-old was on the front porch when he told the 16-year-old to approach him. When the 16-year-old reached the front door, the younger boy shot him, Clark said.

    "He was never in the house," Clark told the newspaper. "He wasn't breaking in at all. He was just trying to
    sell him his phone."

    But Sharon Taylor, who lives next door to where the shooting happened and said she is a cousin of the 11-year-old's father, said the boy is not a troublemaker. She doubted the break-in story, however, calling it unlikely to happen in the middle of the day.

    Schellman encouraged anyone with information to contact police.

    The 11-year-old and his 4-year-old sister were not hurt. Their mother wasn't home during the incident but is cooperating with an investigation, Schellman said.

  • Second Amendment groups are accusing the gun control lobby of putting law-abiding owners of firearms in danger by urging people to call the police on anyone carrying a gun in public.

    As more states relax rules about open-carrying of guns, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has taken to social media to urge the public to assume gun-toters are trouble, and to call the cops on anyone they feel may be a threat.

    “If you see someone carrying a firearm in public—openly or concealed—and have ANY doubts about their intent, call 911 immediately and ask police to come to the scene,” the group wrote on its widely followed Facebook page. “Never put your safety, or the safety of your loved ones, at the mercy of weak gun laws that arm individuals in public with little or no criminal and/or mental health screening.”

    That approach, according to a blog post by Ohio-based Buckeye Firearms Association, could give rise to needless, tense confrontations between police and gun owners. The association and other similar groups liken the tactic to “swatting,” or the act of tricking an emergency service into dispatching responders based on a false report. Many online harassment campaigns have been known to participate in the practice.

    “This practice is exactly what they [Coalition to Stop Gun Violence] are doing,” said Erich Pratt, spokesman for Virginia-based Gun Owners of America. “It’s one thing if someone is using a gun in an illegal or unlawful manner. No one is questioning that. But this clearly sounds like swatting.”

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Hundreds gathered to remember a 9-year-old girl who was killed when shots were fired into her Ferguson home as she did homework on her mother's bed.

    Sobs grew audible and tissues were passed down the aisles as fourth-grade classmates of Jamyla Bolden sang in front of her casket Saturday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reported. The shooting Aug. 18 in the St. Louis suburb also left Jamyla's 34-year-old mother wounded. After searching more than a week, authorities charged a 21-year-old O'Fallon man with second-degree murder and several other felonies.

    The pastor at Friendly Missionary Baptist Church told Jamyla's family as the funeral began that the shooting has "wounded" the whole community, region and country.

    "We dare not say we experience it in the same way as you," the Rev. Michael Jones added.

    Jamyla's killing brought renewed attention to Ferguson, where Michael Brown was fatally shot by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, 2014.

    "We say go to school, get an education ... she tried to do all of that," former Missouri Rep. Betty Thompson said after the service.

    Lillie Vinson, a longtime friend of Jamyla's great-aunt, said it seemed like the community worked well with the Ferguson Police Department and its new interim chief, Andre Anderson, to try to solve the crime.

    "I hope we just stop all of this senseless shooting," Vinson said before the funeral began. "Enough is enough."

    Officer Greg Casem told the gathering how he held Jamyla as she was dying and told her to "hold on."

    "I watched the ambulance speed away, and I felt lost," he said, overcome with emotion. "You have touched the heart of the entire nation."

    The church played a video during the service that featured St. Louis Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III asking the community to pray for Jamyla and justice. He and his wife, Ira, paid for the family's funeral expenses.
