New Poll Finds Americans Increasingly Distrust Federal Government 
According to a Pew Research Center survey released Monday, only 19 percent of Americans trust the government “always or most of the time.”

This is in stark contrast to just 15 years ago, in the wake of the September 11th attacks, when 60 percent of Americans said they trusted the government.
Since then trust has been steadily eroding in the face of the Iraq War and the economic uncertainty.



A mere 20 percent described government-run programs as well-run.
The survey also suggests that some of the cynicism may be driven by the influence of money on political campaigns, with 76 percent of respondents saying money “has a greater influence on politics and elected officials today than in the past." Sixty-four percent said the amount of money it takes to run for president "discourages many good candidates from running."

M.N.: Two "supremos" and de-facto heads of their intelligence services (which are bound by a formal cooperation agreement) understand each other very well; they speak the same language, share the same goal of "Death to America" and conduct their joint operations on "Bunny Friend's Playground" and worldwide. And the band just plays on... 
Putin Visits Tehran for Syria Talks - VOA

‘End of Europe’

The U.S. realizes it will have to offer Hollande something on a united front against Islamic State including Russia but the lack of trust in Putin makes this very difficult, an American official said. At most, the Obama administration could publicly welcome Russian strikes against IS and agree informally with Russia on dividing up areas controlled by the militant group for targeting. 
No intelligence-sharing or coordination of military activity is likely, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the matter is confidential.
Other European Union powers also need to make a show of support to prevent Putin from parading himself as France’s ally in the wake of the terrorist attacks, former Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta said.
“If we let Putin appear as the real ally of France, it will be the end of Europe,” Letta said in an interview. “That’s the risk, that’s what’s happening.”
