Marine Generals on Trump’s Team

"Mad Dog" Mattis Plays no Games" - Donald Trump

Former members of the Marines, the military’s smallest but proudest branch have gone on to become senators, governors, and senior government officials. But never has a former Marine become president of the United States. Perhaps with the elevation of these Marines into senior foreign policy roles, that could change.

Rolling Back the Empire: Washington’s Proxy-Army Faces Decisive Defeat in Aleppo

It appears that the battle of Aleppo is about to end and the Syrian Army is on the “verge of total victory.”

Syrian Army helicopters dropped leaflets on parts of eastern Aleppo on Sunday warning anti-government fighters to surrender while they still had the chance. Hundreds of jihadists have already laid down their weapons and surrendered while a hardline corps of deadenders continue to fend off the rapidly advancing army.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsNo Evidence, But Pentagon Tries to Convince Turkey Iran Killed Their Troops

A late November attack on Turkish soldiers in northern Syria, which killed four troops, was initially and falsely blamed on a Syrian airstrike by Turkish officials. Turkey met with Russia over the matter, who confirmed that this wasn’t the case, and indeed that the indication was that the attack wasn’t an airstrike at all, but an ISIS suicide bombing.

ISIS was quick to take credit for the bombing the day it happened, so it wasn’t clear why Turkey needed a solid week to concede that their initial claim of an airstrike was wrong. The Pentagon, however, is trying to sell Turkey on the idea that everyone is wrong and Iran attacked them for no apparent reason.

Unnamed Pentagon officials quoted in the Turkish press offered no evidence of Iranian involvement, but noted that the site of the attack, which again apparently was an ISIS suicide attack, was sort of close to some places where Shi’ite militias are located, and since Iran is a Shi’ite state “it might be Iran.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is what the Pentagon has become in the 21st century; a fact-challenged, conspiratorial false narrator, attempting to anger Turkey against Iran, when there is not a shred of evidence to support it's claim.

Folks, this makes me very nervous!!

And who are these alleged "Pentagon officials" which made this accusation ?!?

IF in fact Turkish officials spoke to them, I want them named, and interviewed by responsible independent journalists.

Want to talk about fake news and fake accusations?!?

The US government takes the cake, hands-down, on this!!.

US Hawks Lay Out Plan for Getting Into a War With Iran

United Against a Nuclear Iran (UANI), an organization packed to the gills with a bipartisan who’s who of hawkish figures, held an event on the “Future of Iran Policy” in Washington DC. Unsurprising, given the list of attendees, the future they envision is war, and lots of it.

The event headlined by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R – FL) and former Sen. Joe Lieberman saw calls to “restore coercion” against Iran, with several figures advocating that the US accept the limits of sanctions alone by sinking Iranian naval vessels in the Persian Gulf.

This call, pushed by Lieberman and Foundation for Defense of Democracies head Mark Dubowitz, who sought to parlay those intermittent events in which the US warships parked off Iran’s coast complain Iran’s boats, inside Iran’s territorial waters, are “too close” by simply attacking and sinking those boats at every opportunity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has long been demanding some kind of US attack against Iran, even to the point of threatening to do it themselves, which will inevitably lead to US into war against both Iran and Russia.

"Israeli speculation over Iran strike reaches fever pitch"(Guardian, August 14, 2016)

One has to wonder if that huge military aid package from the US to Israel U.S. $38B military aid package to Israel sends a message was the secret component of a quid pro quo for Israel not attacking Iran.

But the Israeli firsters are not giving up, and this call to "restore coercion" against Iran is nothing less than total insanity; I am sorry, but these folks have collectively lost their reality licenses,to be advocating such reckless US military actions, and need to be gently housed in soft, locked facilities with soft toys preventing any choking hazards.

The P5+1 deal may be many things, and is certainly not perfect, by anyone's standards; but going to war against Iran (which will almost inevitably mean going to war with Russia), right after Trump is inaugurated, is one of the most idiotic things I have heard

Big Money Intends To Shut Down Our Website — Paul Craig Roberts

Paul Craig Roberts

Big Money and the US government controlled by Big Money intend to close down Internet truthtellers. As Trump intends to reduce the tensions between nuclear powers, the 200 List prepared by the shadowy Internet site, PropOrNot, is in Trump’s way. Either Trump will be apprised and convinced of the “Russian threat,” or the dissident websites will be promoted to “Muslim apologists” and fall under the ire of Trump’s Iranophobic generals.

The Tide Is Turning Against the Oligarchs — Paul Craig Roberts

The ruling oligarchy and their presstitute media have become desperate now that they are losing control over explanations and Americans’ minds. Thus, they charge independent Internet journalists such as myself with being Russian agents peddling fake news.

Recent legislation in the House of Representatives, the list of 200 alleged Russian agents, and the attacks on president-elect Trump from within the US intelligence community make it clear that pressures on truthtellers are increasing.

Is Peace Possible? A Dialogue With Johan Galtung On Ukraine; Trump, Putin, And…

I expect these two men to cooperate — Johan Galtung

JG: I think there is a big difference in the campaigner Donald Trump, with his horrible remarks, and all his prejudices, and the President-Elect—who announces himself as the President for all Americans! While we are focusing on Ukraine, I was particularly interested in a statement made by a member of the Trump team about the 200-year relationship between Russia and the United States: the point was made that Russia supported what became the United States, against the French and the English empires. And that was Tsar Alexander I!...

It helps to have a long time-perspective! This is the first time in my life that I have heard of a President-Elect, or a President, having an historical perspective!

Trump Can Walk Away From Iran Nuclear Deal: US State Department

The US State Department has said that President-elect Donald Trump will have the power to revoke the nuclear deal reached between Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries.

‘Mad Dog’ Mattis and the Spirit of Trumpism

When it comes to foreign policy, the incoming Trump administration displays a split personality.

Mattis exemplifies the dual nature of the new administration.
This was readily apparent during the campaign, when, on the one hand, Donald Trump told us we were lied into the Iraq war, that NATO is “obsolete,” and that we have no business supporting regime change in Syria – and, on the other hand, he declared that he would crush ISIS, that it was a mistake to leave Iraq, and that we have to “rebuild our military,” as if we don’t already spend as much as the top ten defense spenders.

Warmongering 99 – Common Sense 0: The Senate’s Unanimous Renewable Of Iran Sanctions Act

The Senate just renewed the Iran Sanctions Act of 1996 for another ten years. President Obama has indicated that he will not veto the bill, as the margin of 99-0 makes the resolution veto proof. The extension of the H. R. 6297 comes at the heels of Trump’s election; he has already declared in no uncertain terms that he will repeal the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Iranophobes on Parade – Philip Giraldi

Will Iran be the target of the Trump regime?

Hopefully someone will convince Donald Trump that the real answer to eliminating the “Iranian threat” is not war.

One of the most discouraging aspects of the filling out of the Donald Trump cabinet is the array of Iran haters that seem to be lining up in the foreign policy and national security areas.Trump has been personally advocating sensible policies relating to Russia and Syria but he appears to have gone off the rails regarding Iran, which just might be attributed to those who are giving him advice.

Ron Paul: Trump's Promised 'New Foreign Policy' Must Abandon Regime Change for Iran

During his 'thank you' tour in the midwest, Trump had this to say: "We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments. In our dealings with other countries we will seek shared interests wherever possible..."
If this is really to be President Trump's foreign policy, it would be a welcome change from the destructive path pursued by the two previous administrations. Such a foreign policy would go a long way toward making us safer and more prosperous, as we would greatly reduce the possibility of a 'blowback' attack from abroad, and we would save untold billions with a foreign policy of restraint.

Mr. Trump: Use Your America-First Instincts to Pick a Secretary of State

These five men taken individually or together amount to a poisonous dog’s breakfast of intervention, war-mongering, deeper bankruptcy, and Israel First.

There is not an America First-bone in any of them, and they would work against your often-stated goal of reforming U.S. foreign policy in the direction the Founders intended, and ending the influence of the passions of Neoconservatives and Israel Firsters for involving the republic in endless, unnecessary wars.

Failed EU – Means an Expanded Dictatorship

Mass movements frequently take on a life of their own.

As the people of the world awaken to the pernicious nature and destructive wreckage of European civilization, the EU technocrats and oligarchs respond with even greater measures of control, repression and intimidation. Yet the prospects that they will be able to maintain their autocratic rule lessons with each populist rebellion against the beasts from Brussels. Induced panic is a tool used to scare the peasants into additional submission. The most obvious method will be a major economic and monetary implosion designed to create fear so that their revered and lauded interdependency necessitates another surrender of national sovereignty.

CIA Chief Mike Pompeo Says Comment About The "Zionist-Controlled Media" Is "Offensive" and "A Deeply Troubling Statement."

A very interesting clip has surfaced in which Rep. Mike Pompeo, whom President-elect Trump has picked to head the CIA, was questioned on live TV by 'a Jewish American' caller who asked about Israel's nuclear weapons. The caller went on to mention "the Zionist-controlled media" and their false claims that Iran's former president Ahmadenajad wanted to "wipe Israel off the map."

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts Is A Former Treasury Secretary Who Actually Cares

Here’s an idea – how about appointing a US Treasury Secretary who actually cares for the ultimate welfare of the American People and the United States of America for a change, as opposed to using his position as a “revolving door” a la the cadre of treasonous “America-last” gaggle of premeditated criminals merely taking a leave of absence from their full-time jobs at Goldman Sachs and Covington & Burling LLP?

The American economy and its engineered 2008 crash wrought by such “financial luminaries” as Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Gene Sperling, Hank Paulson, Tim Geithner, and others, has left a lasting effect, if not almost the total destruction of, the American Economy.

Iran Sanctions Re-Imposition Symbol Of American ‘Black And White’ Thinking

The US Congress re-imposition of sanctions against Iran on pretexts such as human rights and support for terrorism shows the American “black and white” mode of thinking, given the generally accepted fact that Saudi Arabia is the leading state sponsor of terrorism, says a former US Senate foreign policy analyst.

The CODEPINK Tribunal taking place December 1 and 2, and live streamed by The Real News, is a historic collection of testimonies about the lies and costs of the Iraq war.

Iran Threatens to Walk Away From Nuke Deal, Retaliate Against U.S. for New Sanctions

Iran is threatening to walk away from the nuclear deal with the United States and pursue forms of retaliation, including a national boycott of American goods, as a result of Congress’s overwhelming vote on Thursday to level new sanctions against Iran for another 10 years, according to multiple comments by senior Iranian officials.

Following the Senate’s 99-0 vote to renew economic sanctions on Tehran, senior Iranian officials said the United States is in violation of last summer’s nuclear deal and that Iran is prepared to retaliate, which could include abandoning the agreement.

The comments come as the Obama administration scrambles to preserve the deal in its final months in office, ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has been assembling a cabinet filled with fierce opponents of the accord.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to have been a very carefully crafted tactic by the US Senate to anger the Iranians to the point where they walk away from the P5+1 nuclear deal, and restart their nuclear weapons program as the "justification" for the US declaring war against Iran (which will almost certainly mean war with Russia.)

If I could ever craft an amendment to the Constitution it would be this; when all Congressional candidates declare their candidacy, that is the moment that one of their kids must enlist in the Armed Forces, in units most likely to see front-line action.

I am almost willing to bet that this will dampen Congressional ardor and lust for war, because, this time, with their kids tasked to participate in combat, ...it's personal. It's not just "other people's kids", getting killed and maimed for life, ultimately, for corporate profit; but will potentially be their own.

Senate Extends Idiotic Iran Sanctions By 99-0 Vote!

Forget that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) agreed between Iran and the so-called P5+1 consisting of the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain, and the European Union has by all accounts been one of the few real foreign policy successes in the eight years of an otherwise war-dominated the Obama Administration. Forget that the promise of normalizing trade relations with Iran would produce untold wealth – and jobs – for both the US and Iran.

US Senate passes bill to extend Iran sanctions

The US Senate has almost unanimously passed a bill to extend sanctions against Iran by another 10 years. A total of 99 senators voted in favor, one abstained Thursday. The document authorizes the US president to impose restrictions on individuals and entities involved in the ballistic missile program, supporting terrorism and human rights abuses. It is yet to be signed by US President Barack Obama. Sources in his administration earlier said that the president would not support initiatives that might undermine the nuclear deal with Tehran. However, White House spokesman Josh Earnest failed to give any definite answer about the future of the bill. "We'll take a look at what bill is passed and determine whether or not the President will sign it," he told reporters. The Hill said, citing unnamed White House sources, that the president is likely to sign the bill.

Official: IRGC Navy to Continue Missions with No Care for US Ballyhoos

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy will continue its missions in the Persian Gulf seriously without any attention to the Pentagon officials' ballyhoos, an informed IRGC Navy official said on Tuesday. The official's remarks came after Pentagon officials claimed that on November 26, US Navy SH-60 helicopter approached Iranian warships in the Strait of Hormuz. The distance to one of them was not more than 800 meters, while the other one was about 2 kilometers away. The crew of one of the Iranian warships aimed an anti-aircraft weapon at the US helicopter to stop it from approaching the Iranian vessels further. "Every now and then, some US officials raise such claims shows that they are in pursuit of certain objectives through their propaganda moves; therefore, we emphasize: ballyhoos are forbidden; you are the problem," the IRGC Navy official said.

Iran Ready to Allow Russian Jets to Use Hamadan Base for 'Takeoff and Refueling'

The use of the Hamadan airfield by the Russian aviation in August was the first time when Iranian territory had been used by foreign military forces since 1946. Last week, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan said that Tehran could allow Russia's use of the Noje Airbase in Hamadan for the aerial campaign against terrorists in Syria if the situation demanded it. "If the situation and conditions [in Syria] demand to provide the support, we will do this job," Dehqan said. In an interview with Sputnik Persian, Hossein Sheikholeslam, an adviser to the Iranian foreign minister, commented on the possible option for the Russian Aerospace Forces at the Hamadan airfield. "I’d like to emphasize that Iran never gave to Russia full control over the Noje base in Hamadan. This airbase belongs to Iran and all activities at the base are controlled by Tehran," Sheikholeslam said. In mid-August, Iran already allowed Russian jets to operate from a base in the Hamadan province.

Iran humiliates US Navy yet again

Pentagon officials made an announcement about unprofessional and dangerous actions of the crew of a warship of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). On November 26, US Navy SH-60 helicopter approached Iranian warships in the Strait of Hormuz. The distance to one of them was not more than 800 meters, while the other one was about 2 kilometers away. The crew of one of the Iranian warships aimed an anti-aircraft weapon at the US helicopter to stop it from approaching the Iranian vessels further. The crew of the helicopter did not feel the danger, but decided to turn in the opposite direction, Reuters reports. Pentagon officials did not expand on the "lack of professionalism" of the Iranian sailors. It would have been strange, if the crew of ship would have showed no reaction to the approaching US military helicopter. However, US officials believe that the incident in the Strait of Hormuz may have negative consequences for Iran.

Foibles, Fables and Failures – The Financial Press and its Keepers

The Presidential elections made millions of American voters starkly aware of the mendacity of the mass media and the corruption of the Clinton political elite.

The world’s largest billionaire bankers had bankrolled Secretary Hillary Clinton, the ‘million-dollar-a-speech’ War Goddess. They had bet heavily against the populist-nationalist Donald Trump and they lost. Their pre-paid political manifestos, addressed to the readers of the NY Times, flopped and sputtered: Most readers and investors in domestic markets had placed their bets on ‘The Donald’. Their domestic celebrations pumped up the market after the election.

The unimaginable had happened: George Soros had bet and lost! The ‘deplorable’ electorate preferred the obnoxious nationalist to the obnoxious speculator. ‘Who’d a thunk it?’

To the extent any of the Trump protesters are sincere and not merely paid tools of oligarchs, such as George Soros, military and financial interests, and global capitalists, they should consider that false claims and unjustified criticism can cause Trump and his supporters to close their ears to all criticism and make it easier for neoconservatives to influence Trump by offering support.

The Iran-Russia-China Strategic Triangle

21 November 2016
By F. William Engdahl

The developing economic, political and military links binding Iran, China and Russia in what I see as an emerging Golden Triangle in Eurasia, are continuing to deepen insignificant areas. This, while it seems to be US geopolitical strategy in a prospective Trump Administration to distance Washington from both Iran and from China, while dangling the carrot of lessened confrontation between Washington and Moscow–classic Halford Mackinder or Kissinger geopolitics of avoiding a two-front war that was colossally backfiring on Washington by trying to shift the power balance. At present, the dynamic of the past several years of closer cooperation by the three pivotal states of the Eurasian Heartland is gaining strategic momentum. The latest is the visit of China’s Minister of Defense and of Russian senior officials to Teheran

West Aims to Revise Nuclear Deal With Iran Ahead of Trump Inauguration

While the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran has been in place for almost a year now, and the only real compliance questions center around the US not following through on all the pledged lifting of sanctions they were supposed to do, officials now say the Obama Administration and the rest of the West are pushing to add even more restrictions on Iran.

It’s not so much that there’s a technical justification for any of these new restrictions. Rather, officials say the goal is to even further limit Iran’s civilian nuclear program before US President-elect Donald Trump takes office, in hopes that it will eliminate any excuse he has to scrap the pact.

Though Trump campaigned on the idea of ripping up the Iran deal if elected, though since then his aides have said the focus will be on strict enforcement of the pact. This enforcement strategy is also being advocated by Republicans and the Israeli leadership, both of whom previously opposed the deal on any terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Scrapping the pact may well ultimately lead to war with both Iran AND Russia; this would be a truly lousy outcome, and not something President-elect Trump should even be thinking about right now.

Forget for a moment, that a US-led, Israeli-enabled invasion of Iran would definitely put us absolutely on the wrong side of history here; unfortunately, right now, the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the money; the troop strength; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a war with Russia.

Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington ...
The Trump transition team has lost nearly half its staff and volunteers in a matter of days since instituting a ban on registered lobbyists at the end of last week, the Daily Mail has learned.

‘All the lobbyists are gone,’ said one source familiar with the transition. ‘Lobbyists were the vast majority. Now, today you go in and you could count [them] maybe on one hand.’

The source estimated that the number of staffers and volunteers working on the transition plummeted from around 250 late last week to less than 125 on Tuesday.

“Fake news” has become a hot issue following the surprise US election victory of maverick business tycoon Donald Trump.

Trump Prepares to Take Over the Fed

Now their little party is coming to an end.

In Donald Trump’s first four years as president, he will not only choose three judges for the Supreme Court, he’ll also pick five of the seven members on the Fed Board of Governors. It would be impossible to overstate the effect this is going to have on the nation’s economic future. With both houses of Congress firmly in the GOP’s grip, we could see the most powerful central bank in the world transformed into a purely political institution that follows the diktats of one man.

Listen to this guy Donald. Those guys you appointed,not so much!

Israeli officials have told reporters that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is talking with his national security team on making plans for exactly what they’re going to demand President-elect Donald Trump do to Iran. Surprisingly, it’s not going to include killing the P5+1 nuclear deal.

IRAN: 12 TOP OFFICIALS ARRESTED FOR SPYING

MP Hussein Ali Haji Degana said at least 12 officials, occupying high positions, were arrested on suspicion of spying, while, almost all of them participated in the signing of a nuclear agreement in 2015.

Moreover, most of the detainees have dual citizenship. Thus there are citizens of the United Kingdom and Canada. But it is not yet known, if there are some US citizens among them or not.

During recent times, there is evidence that Washington is going to avoid this agreement, that’s why Tehran continues to express its protest. Hussein Ali Haji Degana said that the White House would have to pay dearly for the termination of this transaction.

Trump & Woolsey: Was There a Bait-and-Switch?

The day after Trump’s election, Woolsey was interviewed by the CBC and asked about U.S. national security priorities. Woolsey responded that it was necessary “to get straight who our friends and adversaries are.” He asserted that “Israel is our friend,” while he called Iran “the world’s leading terrorist state” and insisted that the nuclear agreement with Iran “is so bad it needs to go.” Tehran reached a deal with world powers (including the U.S.) on its nuclear program in July 2015. The Israel lobby has reportedly been trying to undermine the agreement ever since by linking Iran with ISIS terrorism.

Woolsey also called Russia and North Korea “problem states,” and when asked if a new relationship with Russia could be possible under Trump as president, he answered that it “has to be based on Russian performances, not Russian promises,” adding that “Russia’s got to stop conquering its neighbours, like Ukraine.”

Trump adviser: He might rethink Israel, Iran plans

Excellent Donald! Excellent! Bravo and Huzzah!

President-elect Donald Trump might not move too quickly to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and rip up the Iran nuclear agreement — two actions he promised during his campaign, a top adviser said.

A Digital 9/11 If Trump Wins

Brace yourselves folks. The Globalists are trembling in their boots.

It is a green light for a coup d’état by the Deep State forces who found that they could not win through the “normal” rigging methods.

There are disturbing signs that a digital 9/11 terror attack is being readied for election day in the US to ensure that Donald Trump does not win.

Such an attack – involving widespread internet and power outage – would have nothing to do with Russia or any other foreign state. It would be furnished by agencies of the US Deep State in a classic “false flag” covert manner. But the resulting chaos and “assault on American democracy” will be conveniently blamed on Russia.

The billion-dollar gold rush to tap into Iranian oil

Another obstacle is Iran's new model oil contract. Iran's oil ministry took more than two years to draft the new model, which continues to face political opposition from conservative hardliners. Up until now, investors have operated under short-term, fixed-fee contracts called buybacks that give them no share in the profits. The new system allows foreign oil majors to form joint ventures with Iranian companies and participate in production activity. They were previously limited to exploration and development. The change gives foreign firms the opportunity to improve ultimate recovery and reap higher returns by coordinating early stage output and using advanced methods to squeeze oil and gas from maturing fields.

Yes, the onslaught of the media upon Trump has been exceedingly unfair, but he survived it.

What is even more important, you survived it, it does not matter what the polls say: they say what the newspapers tell them to say. Even people answer the polls according to the media prognoses: they are shy of saying they would vote for a man who … But at the moment of actual vote, they do what they know is right for them. You have a very good chance to win, and to defeat the witch and her supporters.

Iran Hostage Crisis 37 Years On: The US Embassy Siege In Pictures

Today marks the 37th anniversary of the beginning of Iran’s US embassy siege. It was an episode that would last more than a year, creating an international crisis and forever changing relations between the two countries.

Some 52 Americans, comprising both diplomatic staff and citizens, were held hostage in Iran for 444 days between November 4, 1979 and January 21, 1981 by a group of students supporting the Islamic Revolution.

Lemmings and Republicans – Alan Ned Sabrosky

So why are so many Republican leaders doing all they can do to diminish Trump and give the election to Clinton ?

For conservatives and Republicans, a win by Hillary Clinton in November would be a catastrophe — and not just because people like Miley Cyrus and Al Sharpton would not leave the country.

It would mean continued assaults on the 1st and 2nd Amendments, especially the latter. Higher taxes and more welfare. More war — Hillary Clinton’s defense secretary-in-waiting, Michelle Flournoy, has openly said as much. And it would mean her appointment of at least one justice to the US Supreme Court, and perhaps as many as four, creating a liberal block of five to seven justices that will put its stamp on the country for a generation or more.

America Is Now At Its Greatest Risk Of a False Flag Attack

Never in America’s history has she been in more danger of a “false flag” attack from her enemies, both foreign and domestic, than she is now.

Inside the Invisible Government: War, Propaganda, Clinton & Trump by JOHN PILGER

This article is about the culpability and criminality as in War Crimes of the US MSM. Pilgers' take on why the establishment hates Donald Trump too!

In 1946, the Nuremberg Tribunal prosecutor said of the German media: “Before every major aggression, they initiated a press campaign calculated to weaken their victims and to prepare the German people psychologically for the attack. In the propaganda system, it was the daily press and the radio that were the most important weapons.”

Congress: Attorney GeneralLynch ‘Pleads Fifth’ on Secret Iran ‘Ransom’ Payments

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year, prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) initially presented Lynch in October with a series of questions about how the cash payment to Iran was approved and delivered.

In an Oct. 24 response, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik responded on Lynch’s behalf, refusing to answer the questions and informing the lawmakers that they are barred from publicly disclosing any details about the cash payment, which was bound up in a ransom deal aimed at freeing several American hostages from Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So here we have even more evidence, as though thinking Americans needed any more, that the Obama Administration is one of the most corrupt in the history of this country, as "Lyin' Loretta" pleads the 5th in order to block a Congressional investigation about money sent to Iran, allegedly to free hostages.

After all, for people like "Lyin' Loretta", Lois Lerner; Eric Holder, and the ENTIRE Clinton/Obama Cartel, laws are "only for the little people" but THEY can flout the law with impunity.

Clinton Adviser Proposes Attacking Iran to Aid the Saudis in Yemen

Michael Morell is a former acting director of the CIA and a national security adviser to Hillary Clinton — one who is widely expected to occupy a senior post in her administration.

He is also an opponent of the Iran nuclear agreement, a defender of waterboarding, and an advocate for making Russia “pay a price” in Syria by covertly killing Putin’s soldiers.

On Tuesday, Morell added another title to that résumé: proponent of going to war with Iran, for the sake of securing Saudi Arabia’s influence in Yemen.

“Ships leave Iran on a regular basis carrying arms to the Houthis in Yemen,” Morell said, in remarks to the Center for American Progress, the liberal think tank founded by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. “I would have no problem from a policy perspective of having the U.S. Navy boarding their ships, and if there are weapons on them, to turn those ships around.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any potential act of war against Iran will make Tel Aviv extraordinarily happy, as Israel has always advocated for the US military to destroy their alleged 'existential threats' in the region for them, as it did in Iraq; that being said, however, I am absolutely gobsmacked that Morell doesn't realize that such an action will inevitably bring about a US war with Russia. And it is apparent that neither does Hillary Clinton, after these remarks in July of 2015:

Hillary Clinton: “If I’m President, We Will Attack Iran… We would be Able to Totally Obliterate Them.”

I frankly do not want anyone in the White House who is pathologically incapable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion; and these two just flat CANNOT, period, end of discussion.

The penultimate goal is total militarization of the western world, to prevent and suppress protests and revolts .

He is also an obedient servant to those that pull the strings and watch through the eye on top of the pyramid, so clearly depicted in the US dollar bill, the symbol for Zionist-Freemason total hegemony. But importantly, he, like Hillary, would most likely not hesitate to push the Red Bottom, when asked to do so by their masters.

Iran says Kerry’s Remarks on Sanctions ‘Unacceptable’

Iran has rejected remarks by US Secretary of State John Kerry that its policies in Syria and Yemen are blocking efforts to encourage banks to do business with it.

In an interview published Friday, Kerry told Foreign Affairs magazine that Iranian support for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement and Yemen’s Huthi rebels made it “very difficult” to help Iran improve its banking system and business practices.

“Mr Kerry’s comments are totally unacceptable,” Iran’s deputy foreign minister, Abbas Araghchi, told state television on Sunday night.

“We are surprised. During the nuclear negotiations, we clearly said that questions of security, defence, ballistic missiles and our regional policies were not negotiable and are not linked to the nuclear talks,” he said.

“It is unacceptable that Mr Kerry is today talking of new conditions.”

Hillary Clinton's Axis of Evil

Let’s cut to the chase; Hillary Clinton is ready to go to war against Russia in Syria – with inbuilt, potentially terrifying, thermonuclear consequences.

Anticipating an outcome of the US presidential election as a remix of the 1972 Nixon landslide, Hillary has also coined, George “Dubya” Bush-style, a remixed axis of evil: Russia, Iran and “the Assad regime”. © AFP 2016/ DON EMMERT Clinton Claims Russian Aggression Keeps War in Syria Going On That’s not even counting China, which, via “aggression” in the South China Sea, will also feature as a certified foe for the Founding Mother of the pivot to Asia. And if all that was not worrying enough, Turkey now seems on the path to join the axis. President Putin and President Erdogan met in Istanbul. Moscow positioned itself as ready to develop large-scale military-technical cooperation with Ankara. That includes, of course, the $20 billion, Rosatom-built, four-reactor Akkuyu nuclear power plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's be clear here; the uber-elitist Clinton is the darling, and puppet, of her warmongering corporate masters and Israel, and will obey any orders they give her, no matter what it may mean for the future (or complete destruction) of the United States of America.

In her worldview, no American sacrifice of blood and money can ever be enough to satiate the appetites for the destruction her masters envision, and she will attempt to move heaven and earth to make such destruction happens.

U.S. Enters Yemen War Directly for the First Time With Attack on Houthis

THE U.S. MILITARY directly attacked Houthi rebels in Yemen for the first time on Wednesday — firing Tomahawk cruise missiles at three rebel-held radar stations on the Red Sea coast. The attack, which was in retaliation for a failed missile attack on a U.S. Navy destroyer on Sunday, risks drawing the U.S. further into the 18-month war.

In March 2015, a coalition of states led by Saudi Arabia began a U.S.-backed bombing campaign against the Houthi forces, which four months earlier had seized Yemen’s capital and deposed the country’s U.S.- and Saudi-backed dictator. Since then, the U.S. has flown refueling missions for Saudi aircraft, supplied targeting intelligence, and resupplied the Saudi effort with tens of billions of dollars of weapons.

While the U.S. has previously conducted direct attacks in Yemen against al Qaeda — which controls vast territory in central and eastern Yemen — it had not directly engaged Houthi forces before.

Iran deploys warships off Yemen coast in the Gulf of Aden: Tasnim

Iran sent two warships to the Gulf of Aden on Thursday, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported, establishing a military presence in waters off Yemen where the U.S. military launched cruise missile strikes on areas controlled by Iran-backed Houthi forces.

"Iran's Alvand and Bushehr warships have been dispatched to the Gulf of Aden to protect trade vessels from piracy," Tasnim reported.

The U.S. military strikes were in response to failed missile attacks this week on a U.S. Navy destroyer, U.S. officials said.

Iran's key regional rival Saudi Arabia accuses Tehran of providing support to the Houthis, a charge the Islamic Republic denies.

Tasnim said the Iranian ships will patrol the Gulf of Aden, south of Yemen, which is one of the world's most important shipping routes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, President Obama, for having thrown the US even further into yet another military misadventure in the Middle East, as the US Government's "Proud Partner in War Crimes", Saudi Arabia, continues to shell schools, hospitals, markets, and private residences with impunity.

Mr. President, your actions, while in office have not been the actions of a person awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, but the actions of a war criminal, down on your knees, and completely subservient to your Corporate Masters who love wars, because wars create profits for them.

What you have enabled the Saudi military to do in Yemen is absolutely gut-wrenching to any truly moral American. Oh, and the US government allegedly provides "guidance" for these strikes, am I correct, sir?!?

Well, this is what this "guidance" looks like from the Yemeni side of the border:

images children killed in saudi bomb strikes in yemen

Yes, Mr. President, please do take one good long hell of a look at these pictures; you, sir are personally complicit in this slaughter, having signed off on Saudi Arabia's buying their bombs from General Dynamics, just as though you had released those bombs yourself.

Congratulations on your "legacy", both at home and abroad, Mr. President; a tanked economy at home, just waiting to unravel; more endless military misadventures; more offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs through which the middle class in this country has been gutted; and a complete, pathological inability to think any domestic or global scenarios through to their logical conclusion.

And no one in your administration thought for a second that Iran wouldn't react to the US having declared war on Yemen by stating that their military was going to patrol the Gulf of Aden?!?

Sir, that has just, incontrovertibly, proven my point!!

He is not your ordinary politician. Yes, Trump is different. Guess what? That’s a good thing. His ideas – e.g., a sound immigration policy, returning manufacturing jobs to America, negotiating better trade deals – are not at all radical, but do go against the Washington status-quo.

You see, we’re supposed to select another perfectly malleable politician – a Republican not unlike a Democrat – who won’t shake things up too much while in office. Same ol’, same ol’. And you, little person, you are supposed to vote for more of the same and like it. But the American public has reached a tipping point – we’d rather gouge out our eyes than select another career politician or Washington insider. That’s just electing the problem to fix the problem.

“I will NOT wear a hijab and support women’s oppression”: US chess champion boycotts world championship in Iran

The reigning US Chess Champion has decided not to attend the world championship in Iran because she'd be forced to wear a hijab.
“I will NOT wear a hijab and support women’s oppression. Even if it means missing one of the most important competitions of my career,” Nazi Paikidze said in an interview with the founder of My Stealthy Freedom.

The Cowardly BRICS Bank Nations (Except Russia)

It seems that with every single day, both the Mainstream and Alternative Media are reporting more and more innocent men, women, children, and little babies being blown to bits by bombs and artillery, or drowning somewhere off the coast in some remote ocean off of North Africa or Southern Europe on their way to flee from the bombed out desperation and horror of NATO’s carpet bombing of Libya, or from Western Intelligence and Saudi Arabia/Turkey/Israel’s proxy group ISIS, and their collective attacks on Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and the Kurds.

With each and every additional single day of this mindless bloodshed, the world watches and wonders why it is being allowed to continue.

Iran Releases Pictures of Intercepted US Combat Drone

The captured drones include the General Atomics MQ-1C “Grey Eagle” drone, the AAI RQ-7 Shadow 200 and Israeli Hermes 450 drones, Tasnim news agency wrote.

According to the report, Hermes 450 was downed over the country’s airspace in summer 2014. But it’s yet to be revealed how the American UAVs got in the hands of the Iranian armed forces. The news came amid reports that Iran’s Sukhoi Su-25 fired a warning shot at an unidentified UAV flying over the Persian Gulf. The drone allegedly retreated and fled the Iranian airspace after the encounter.

Chess Players Forced to Wear Hijab at 2017 Championships

Chess Players Forced to Wear Hijab at 2017 Championships
The 2017 World Chess Championships will be held in Tehran, and Iran has told Fide (the chess governing body) that all female participants must wear a hijab.

Fide’s Commission for Women’s Chess submitted to Iran’s demand without question, instructing all participants to respect “cultural differences” and follow the rules.

Since 1979, Iranian law has required that all women wear hijabs in public. This discriminatory rule is enforced by the nation's "morality police," and women who refuse to comply are subject to arrest, fines, and public scolding.

Needless to say, the Grandmasters are outraged. Many have flat out refused to attend the 64-player tournament scheduled for February 2017.

“This violates all what sports means,” argues Woman Grandmaster (WGM) Carla Heredia. “Sports should be free of discrimination by sex, religion, and sexual orientation.”

Interior Minister: Saudi Arabia Providing Financial, Intelligence Support for Terrorists in Eastern Iran

"The arrogant powers are looking for unpleasant incidents in Iran and they spend a lot of money in this regard; Saudi Arabia is providing financial, logistic and intelligence support for terrorists in Eastern Iran," Rahmani Fazli said on Thursday.

Over the past several months, the Iranian security forces have engaged in clashes with terrorist groups and while foiling their terrorist plots along the borders and inside the country killed several of them and arrested many others, confiscating large amounts of explosives and bomb-making materials.

In June, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said members of a terrorist group captured in the city of Khash in the country’s Sistan and Balouchestan Province had acknowledged to receiving the US and Saudi support.

Iran & Italy hold joint drills in strategic Strait of Hormuz, despite recent US military incidents

An Italian frigate has participated in joint drills with Iran in the Strait of Hormuz, an Iranian commander has said. The maneuvers are unprecedented and come despite several controversial incidents involving US warships in the same area.
The drills took place in the strategic strait, located between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman.

The Italian frigate Euro sailed to the strait for maneuvers with the Iranian ships the Alvand and Alborz, following a port call in Bandar Abbas on Saturday, Iranian Admiral Hossein Azad told the state IRNA news agency.

An Iranian and an Italian helicopter participated as well, he added, also noting that the drills are aimed at boosting military power and also an exchange of knowledge between the two countries' navies.

Hillary Clinton Slyly Reminded America of the Stuxnet Attack

“With respect to Iran, when I became secretary of state, Iran was weeks away from having enough nuclear material to form a bomb. They had mastered the nuclear fuel cycle under the Bush administration. They had built covert facilities. They had stocked them with centrifuges that were whirling away.”

At first glance, it’s an innocuous descriptor of Iran’s nuclear program, which Clinton later said the U.S. was able to tame through diplomatic and economic sanctions. But that last line — “stocked them with centrifuges that were whirling away,” is pure shade. Because Stuxnet’s primary target was the centrifuge system in the Iranian nuclear facilities.

An Obsolescent Military: Bombing Everything, Gaining Nothing

The wars in the Mid-East illustrate the principle nicely. Iraq didn’t work. Libya didn’t work. Iran didn’t back down. ISIS and related curiosities? The Pentagon is again bombing an enemy that can’t fight back — its specialty — but that it seems unable to defeat. The wrong military, wrong enemy, wrong war, wrong world.

Perhaps the National Theatre of Norway can succeed where others have failed in getting across to world leaders the truth about Israel’s crimes against humanity.

Watch, listen and understand, Clinton and Trump, and hang your heads in shame for what you have become.

If you've never bothered, please do some homework on the subject before it's too late. And don't forget to apologize.

Clinton Tells Netanyahu She Will Continue to Implement Iran Deal

The former secretary of state gave her backing to the recently signed $38b. military aid package, and pledged to take the bilateral relationship “to the next level,” as her Republican rival Donald Trump also did earlier in the day during his sit-down with the prime minister.

Their conversation focused on the nuclear deal with Iran, which Netanyahu opposes and Clinton has endorsed, the campaign said.

‘Beholden to AIPAC’ — progressive senators

Senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama’s actions...

The news that many progressive US senators as well as vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine signed on to an Israel lobby letter designed to limit President Obama’s actions against the Israeli occupation, now nearly 50 years old, has been widely reported, but the plain facts need to be stated.

Yesterday the Israel lobby group AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, flexed its muscle against President Obama and on the side of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu by posting a letter signed by 88 senators warning President Obama not to back any international measures that would pressure Israel to withdraw from occupied territories.

Finally the Russians Have Caught On That Negotiation with Washington Is Pointless

No more provocations from Washington. Period. The insanity must stop. Now.

If the dumbshit Western peoples and the corrupt EU, UK, Canadian, Japanese, and Australian political puppets don’t wake up ASAP, war will be upon us, a war that cannot be won.

The criminal neoconservatives must immediately be removed from power in Washington before the insane fools start World War 3.

The CIA and the Pentagon must be put under tight constraints. And Donald Trump needs a massive trustworthy security guard.

The European governments need to immediately disband the NATO alliance.

Zionists Have Been Hypocritically Practicing “BDS” for Centuries

And all of these anti-BDS politicians and leaders are simply enabling this criminality and “chutzpah.”

Organized Zionism seems to conveniently forget that the original creator of these types of economic boycotts, sanctions and divestment programs to get other nations, individuals or political organizations to comply with their demands, or bring them to their knees, began with the Zionists themselves.

Did the Pentagon Bomb Syrian Army to Kill Ceasefire Deal?

The US has officially taken responsibility for the incident which it called a “mistake”...

A rift between the Pentagon and the White House turned into open rebellion on Saturday when two US F-16s and two A-10 warplanes bombed Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions at Deir al-Zor killing at least 62 Syrian regulars and wounding 100 others.

Many analysts now wonder whether the attacks are an indication that the neocon-strewn DOD is actively engaged in sabotaging President Obama’s Syria policy, a claim that implies that the Pentagon is led by anti-democratic rebels who reject the Constitutional authority of the civilian leadership. Saturday’s bloodletting strongly suggests that a mutiny is brewing at the War Department.

WikiLeaks Bombshell: Hillary’s Brain Injury Caused By ‘Near Fatal Plane Crash’

If an unclassified email leaked by WikiLeaks is any indication, it appears that there may be much more to the story of what happened to Hillary Clinton back in 2012.

We’ve been told that she suffered a concussion… but was that just diplomatic cover for something else?

Within seconds of the C-12 Huron crashing, this report continues, Iranian emergency and security personal responded freeing the victims, including Secretary Clinton who was reportedly unconscious and “bleeding profusely.”

U.S. Holocaust museum urges world leaders to press Iran on Holocaust denial

The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum urged world leaders to press Iran’s leadership on its Holocaust denial during the U.N. General Assembly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This from people who deny the 1948 Palestinians Nakba and that Palestinians ever existed historically as people, and there never ever a Palestine. Oh yes, Israel does not have nuclear weapons, and anyone who says otherwise is a filthy Jew-hating anti-Semite who wants Hitler to come back and gas Jewish babies in the ovens!

Finally Well Deserved Recognition for Deplorables

Public outrage over Hillary’s remarks should be overwhelming.

When the criminal Clinton cabal announces that their infamous foe and now world renowned ‘basket of deplorables’ are threats to their power establishment, you are really hearing an admission that they are losing the war of ideas.

It has long been a well established fact that psychopaths on the loony left are existing in a parallel universe, but it is relatively new just how desperate they have become since the public is waking up...
