Royal Navy’s hi-tech destroyer breaks down in NATO wargame, towed back to port

One of the Royal Navy’s cutting edge Type 45 destroyers had to be humiliatingly towed back to port just two days after setting off to take part in NATO exercises.
The HMS Duncan is believed to have suffered total propulsion failure, forcing it back into Plymouth harbor on Wednesday, according to the Telegraph.

Invasion of Syria by NATO Member State: Turkey Establishes Second Military Base in Syria.

Turkey has set up a military base in Akhtarin in the province of Aleppo, according to local media activists. The Turkish army, Special Forces and intelligence agencies are expanding their presence in northern Syria amid ongoing clashes between pro-Turkey militant groups and the SDF over the possibility to seize from ISIS the key town of al-Bab.

On November 21, Kurdish forces attacked pro-Turkey militant groups in Sheikh Nasir and seized the village.

Earlier this year, reports appeared that the Turkish Armed Forces set up a military base south of al-Rai.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very lousy development in the Western war against Syria, and may well put Turkey in direct conflict with Russian forces.

More Rohingyas flee to Bangladesh as violence spreads in Myanmar

More Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar poured into neighboring Bangladesh this week, with some feared to have drowned after a boat sank during a bid to flee violence that has killed at least 86 people and displaced 30,000.

Some Rohingya refugees have been missing since Tuesday after a group crossed the River Naaf that separates Myanmar and Bangladesh. Those who managed to enter Bangladesh sought shelter in refugee camps or people's homes.

"There was a group of people from our village who crossed the river by boat to come here, but suddenly the boat sank," said Humayun Kabir, the father of three children untraceable since the mishap.

Although many of those on board could swim, and were able to reach the river bank, seven people remain missing, he added, his children among them.

Myanmar troops poured into the western state of Rakhine along the frontier with Bangladesh in response to coordinated attacks on three border posts on Oct. 9 that killed nine police officers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Aung San Suu Kyi's inability to put down the violence against the Rohingya does not augur well for the future of peace in her country.

I frankly would have expected more of a Nobel Peace Prize winner; but then again, look at all the carnage the US's President Obama has created since becoming a recipient of that prize, which actually makes the awarding of it to him on esick joke!!

End the war in Yemen, Mr. Trump

If Trump does want to bring some positive change to U.S. foreign policy, he should seek to end the war in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia announced on Monday that it would not extend a 48-hour cease-fire in its war there. The war doesn't make many headlines in the United States, even though the U.S. is directly involved in helping the Saudi military fire at targets in Yemen and blockade that country.

The humanitarian effect of the war has been disastrous. Over three million Yemeni people have been displaced from their homes. Another 14 million are threatened with what the U.N. calls "food insecurity," because blockading efforts and the war itself have a devastating effect on the import-dependent food supply of the nation.

But the United States does not have to continue exacerbating the situation. It's an immoral and unjust war on a population that does not threaten the United States.

Trump loses half his transition team in purge of lobbyists

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.

West Already Weaponizing Fake News

Maybe the internet will not succumb to the latest Western crusade against “fake news”.
You really know that masses of people are living within a mind-control matrix when the greatest, most pervasive purveyors of fake news denounce others for the practice.

And yet they do so without the slightest hint of awareness about their own monstrous hypocrisy.

“Fake news” has become a hot issue following the surprise US election victory of maverick business tycoon Donald Trump. Supposedly serious Western media outlets have highlighted the spread of hoax stories purporting to be news reports as having swayed the presidential race in Trump’s favor against his rival, Democrat career politician Hillary Clinton.

Saudi Airstrike Kills 12 Civilians in North Yemen

Adding to the growing list of civilians slain in Saudi airstrikes across Yemen since last year’s invasion, 12 more civilians were killed when a Saudi warplane destroyed the truck they were traveling in in the northern Hajjah Province.

The civilians were traveling to a nearby marketplace from a village when they were attacked. There is no hint as to why the vehicle was targeted, and Saudi forces have so far not commented publicly on this latest incident.

It is not unusual, however, for vehicles in general in rural Yemen to be targeted, as the fuel shortage caused by the Saudi naval blockade since last year. The assumption seems to be anyone who still has a functioning vehicle and fuel this far into the war must be up to no good.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Hey, serial genocide against Yemeni civilians; it's the Saudi way!!" - Official spokes slug for the House of Saud.

The Upcoming War On The Alternative Media By The Deep State Mainstream Media

This declaration of war was typified by Google and FaceBook
The Mainstream Media (“MSM”), fully owned and co-opted by the Deep State Plutocrat/ Oligarch Elite, are extremely unhappy that Donald Trump won the 2016 Election.

They did not bank on this, and were completely and totally confident that their trillions of dollars of money issued by the Federal Reserve and international central banks, control of the National Security State as represented by the Military Industrial Complex, and bought and paid for representatives in the United States Legislature (Congress and Senate), Executive Branch, and Judiciary would have ensured their victory.

So what turned this election around, to upset the proverbial apple cart and deliver the Presidency to Donald J. Trump?

‘We are at war with Russia’: EU Parliament resolution to counter Russian media

The resolution is a sign of the “political degradation” of the western “idea of democracy” - Putin

For decades the EU has been lecturing Russia and touting freedom of speech as one of its core principles, but hypocritically dismissed it as an unnecessary luxury once their narrative was challenged, RT’s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said.

“We of course are extremely disappointed, this is really outrageous,” Simonyan said on the subject of the EU’s so-called anti-Russia propaganda resolution.

Fighting Intensifies Between Indian and Pakistani Forces in Kashmir

Heavy fighting continued along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, as Indian forces launched a bombardment of Pakistani military and civilian positions across the line in one of the deadliest exchanges of fire in recent weeks.

At least three Pakistani soldiers were killed in the firing, and Pakistan claimed to have killed another seven Indian soldiers in retaliatory fire. The bigger death toll was among civilians, however, with at least 11 civilians slain when artillery shells hit a passenger bus and a nearby motorcycle.

Pakistan reported the incident as “unprovoked firing” from the Indian side, while Indian officials presented it as retaliation for three Indian soldiers killed the day before, including one whose body was mutilated. The soldiers were killed by militants who infiltrated across the LoC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could completely explode out of control very quickly.

Historians Warn of Trump Death Squads, Mass Killings and Ghetto Intermittent Camps

Liberals contemplate launching a preemptive civil war as historians warn a holocaust us inevitable if Trump is allowed to take power.

Their warning is dire: America will soon face a Holocaust complete with mass killings committed by paramilitary death squads, ghetto interment camps and a raging world war which will all be justified by flag terrorist attack and false accusations of a military coup if Trump is not prevented from taking power.

Historians are sounding the alarm that Trump must be prevented from taking power because once he does it will be too late.

At the same time the corporate media continues to flame conspiracy theories that Donald Trump and those in his inner circle are racist fascists supported by a massive base of white racist sexist males.

U.S.S. Arizona is seen for the first time since being sunk nearly 75 years ago during the attack on Pearl Harbor in new film

A new film has shown the face of the U.S.S. Arizona to the world nearly 75 years after it was sunk when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

Surviving crewman Donald Stratton, who was on board the vessel on that fateful day on December 7, 1941, told Fox News he never thought he'd see it again.

But a remotely-operated underwater vehicle swam to the depths of the Pacific Ocean where the ship now lay and sent back images of the Arizona's interior and exterior.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Depths of the Pacific Ocean?!?" The Arizona sits on the floor of Pearl Harbor, so shallow that portions of it still emerge above the water!!!!

The Liberation of the Slaves

Donald Trump can find better Jewish allies than Zionists or liberal NWO Jews.

Donald Trump’s electoral victory unleashed pent-up tectonic energies on an unprecedented scale.

The world has been changed, much more than could be expected from any election of a US president. Just a short time has passed since election day, but it appears that the New World Order has received a shattering blow. There is a great feeling of freedom in the air, as if the vote broke the chains of a generation, and we suddenly found ourselves free.

Fact Check: Trump Never Said He Will Not Investigate Hillary Clinton - NY Times Lied & MSM Echoed it

Audio Transcripts reveal the New York Times Lied, Donald Trump said he is not taking Hillary Clinton email and foundation investigations off the table.

Claim: Donald Trump will not investigate Hillary Clinton for crimes involving the Benghazi emails and foundation scandals.

Citing The New York Times reporting on their exclusive interview with Donald Trump, the corporate media widely reported yesterday that Donald Trump will not investigate Hillary Clinton regarding her email and foundation scandals.

Further perpetuating the false reports, Trump transitions team members defended Trump's position not knowing Trump never stated he was dropping the investigations.

Trump Transition: As Secretary of State, Tulsi Gabbard offers potential for peace with Syria, Russia

So far as world peace and prosperity goes, most of the names currently being kicked around for America’s top diplomatic position do not inspire a great deal of confidence. It’s easy to feel uneasy when you see recycled neoconservative hawks like John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani, or old hands like Mitt Romney who previously stated that ‘Russia is America’s greatest threat.’

Clash Of Belief Systems Dominates The Biological Weapons Convention

By Janet Phelan

Conflict broke out on the floor of the Biological Weapons Convention in Geneva on the third day of the three week long meeting, with the growing division between Russia and her allies on the one hand and the US and hers on the other, evidencing in verbal accusations launched by both sectors.

Russia exerted her “right of reply” to respond to statements made by the US and Sweden which implicated Syrian forces in the use of chemical weapons in that war torn country.

According to the spokesperson for the Russian Federation, such accusations were not only “off topic” at a meeting devoted to biological—not chemical—weapons but were also patently false...

Berating The POTUS / 'THEN' and now

FLASHBACK 3/14/2003: Dixie Chicks pulled from air after bashing Bush

CNN- DALLAS, Texas (Reuters) -- There are a lot worse things in country music than your wife leaving you or your dog dying. There's stations not playing your music because you done gone and said some things against the president.

Music superstars the Dixie Chicks are finding out that criticizing President Bush's plans for war in Iraq can cost you air play, big time.

Country stations across the United States have pulled the Chicks from playlists following reports that lead singer Natalie Maines said in a concert in London earlier this week that she was "ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas."

Not Again! US Navy ‘Stealth’ Destroyer Towed Into Port After Another Break Down

Built at a cost of more than $4 billion, the high-tech USS Zumwalt only made it to the Panama Canal while on its first journey to its homeport in San Diego. A malfunction left the warship in need of tugboats so that it could reach the closest port, where it remains under maintenance.

Fall and Rise of the Forgotten ‘Deplorables’

We’re in for a few surprises, for better or worse...

As might be anticipated, in the wake of Trump’s historic victory — a win that for all sorts of reasons has shaken the Beltway establishment and beyond to its core, and one that political junkies will be fixating on for years — there’s been much handwringing about how so many folks got the outcome so wrong. All of this has been accompanied by the obligatory hyperventilating and existential angst about what Trump’s election portends for the future.

Rohingya villages 'destroyed' in Myanmar, images show

More than 1,200 homes have been razed in villages inhabited by Myanmar's Muslim Rohingya minority in the past six weeks, Human Rights Watch says.
The group has released a batch of new satellite images that it says show 820 structures were destroyed between 10-18 November.
The military is conducting security operations in Rakhine but the government denies it is razing homes.

The Rohingya are one of the world's most persecuted minority groups.
The BBC cannot independently verify the extent of destruction in Rohingya villages as the government has blocked international journalists from visiting the area, from where tens of thousands of people have fled.
But a BBC correspondent on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border has spoken with fleeing Rohingya families who described what was happening in northern Rakhine as "hell on earth".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last statement is complete, Grade-A bovine excrement.

With all the other persecutions of the Rohingya going on at the hands of the Myanmar government, the torching of their homes, apparently, has become the government's "new normal".

And if you claim that no atrocities are being visited on these people, why do you forbid reporters from going where they (formerly) lived?!?

What is happening to the Rohingya is nothing short of ethnic cleansing, and serial genocide against them.

and Aung San Suu Kyi, State Councellor of Myanmar, and recipient of the Rafto Prize; Sakharov Prize; Nobel Peace Prize; Jawaharlal Nehru Award; Order of Australia; US Congressional Gold Medal; and Presidential Medal of Freedom: your devastating silence on this issue brands you a hypocrite of the highest magnitude.

SHAME ON YOU FOR SAYING NOTHING, AND ALLOWING THESE ATROCITIES TO CONTINUE!!

As reported on the 17th of this month at cnn.com:

Women wail in the background as the camera pans across the scene. "Oh brothers, look at this, look," the narrator says, as he films the remnants of a burned house, bodies clearly visible sticking out of the mud and ash. The disturbing video is one of a handful that have emerged from northern Rakhine State, in Myanmar, where human rights groups warn of widespread human rights abuses. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed in multiple villages amid an ongoing crackdown by the Burmese military following violence last month, according to Human Rights Watch. Burmese authorities claim the fires were set by local militant groups, and have disputed HRW's account. Authorities in neighboring Bangladesh said dozens of people have attempted to flee across the border in recent days.

I frankly doubt like hell the Human Rights Watch has got this wrong, because it rarely does.

America’s Spiral Into Permanent War Seems More Foolish Than Ever

Danner – an award winning journalist, professor, and member of the Council on Foreign Relations who has covered war and revolutions on three continents – begins Spiral with the aftermath of a 2003 ambush of U.S. troops outside of Fallujah, Iraq.

The insurgents had set off a roadside bomb, killing a paratrooper and wounding several others. “The Americans promptly dismounted and with their M-16s and M-4s began pouring lead into everything they could see,” including a passing truck, he writes. “By week’s end scores of family and close friends of those killed would join the insurgents, for honor demanded they kill Americans to wipe away family shame.”

The incident encapsulates the fundamental contradiction at the heart of George W. Bush’s – and with variations, Barack Obama’s – “war on terror”: The means used to fight it is the most effective recruiting device that organizations like Al Qaeda, the Taliban, the Shabab, and the Islamic State have.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US foreign policy seems to be engineered to keep these wars of conquest going perpetually; I do not think that this is by accident.

Trump’s Tulsi Gabbard Factor

Two weeks after Donald Trump’s shocking upset of Hillary Clinton, the imperious and imperial neoconservatives and their liberal-interventionist understudies may finally be losing their tight grip on U.S. foreign policy.

The latest sign was Trump’s invitation for a meeting with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, on Monday. The mainstream media commentary has almost completely missed the potential significance of this start-of-the-work-week meeting by suggesting that Trump is attracted to Gabbard’s tough words on “radical Islamic terrorism.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii.
Far more important is that Gabbard, a 35-year-old Iraq War veteran, endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries because of his opposition to neocon/liberal-hawk military adventures. She starred in one of the strongest political ads of the campaign, a message to Hawaiians, called “The Cost of War.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a great deal of respect for this lady, and hope that Trump can work with her to outline and accomplish a foreign policy that makes real sense, as the foreign policy for the last 16 years absolutely has not; unless one is a money junkie with lots of money invested in the military-industrial complex, that is....

GREY CHAMPION ASSUMES COMMAND (PART TWO)

Those hoping for the Trump presidency to somehow derail this Fourth Turning are delusional. Fourth Turnings never de-intensify. They build to a bloody crescendo, with the existing social order left in tatters and clear winners and losers. I think it is useful to describe this Fourth Turning in terms everyone should understand. J.R.R. Tolkien wrote his Lord of the Rings trilogy in the midst of the last Fourth Turning. It’s not a coincidence the heroic figure of Gandalf the Grey saves the day during the Battle of Helm’s Deep. He was the Grey Champion.

Dear President Trump: Just Say No to the Neocons

President-elect Donald Trump in his April 27 foreign policy speech, in which he said:

“My goal is to establish a foreign policy that will endure for several generations. That’s why I also look and have to look for talented experts with approaches and practical ideas, rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect résumés but very little to brag about except responsibility for a long history of failed policies and continued losses at war. We have to look to new people.

“We have to look to new people because many of the old people frankly don’t know what they’re doing, even though they may look awfully good writing in The New York Times or being watched on television.”

Trump Prepares to Take Over the Fed

Now their little party is coming to an end.

It would be impossible to overstate the effect this is going to have on the nation’s economic future.

Russia Deploys Nuclear Missiles In Retaliation To NATO "Threats"

While the detente between Russia and US president-elect Donald Trump could not have come at a more tense time, the Kremlin appears to be accelerating its head-on collision course with NATO, and as a highly placed defense official said on Monday, Moscow will deploy S-400 surface-to-air missiles and nuclear-capable Iskander systems in the exclave of Kaliningrad in retaliation for NATO deployments, confirming previous media reports of Russian intentions to once again blanket central Europe with potential nuclear ICBM coverage.

While Russia has previously said it periodically sends Iskanders to Kaliningrad, until now it has always said these were routine drills. Moscow has not linked the moves explicitly with what it says is a NATO military build-up on Russia's western borders.

Pakistan: India shells kill three children in Kashmir

An official in the Pakistani-administered area of Kashmir has accused Indian forces of firing mortar shells that targeted a village along the disputed Line of Control, leaving three children dead and three others injured.

"Two girls and their brother died when mortar shells fired by Indian troops hit their house in Kotli district along the Line of Control (LOC)," Raja Arif Mehmood, a local administration official, told AFP news agency on Saturday.

He said the eldest girl was aged 10 and the youngest girl was five.

"All belonged to the same family," he added.

Kashmir: Shelling forces thousands to flee their homes

Indian news sites citing government sources have also reported ongoing clashes in another Kashmir district, Pulwama, but made no mention of the three child deaths in Kotli.

The reports from Indian Express and Times of India claimed that armed men in the Kakapora area of Pulwama opened fire at Indian security forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the current Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi: sir, you have an opportunity to do something which is both morally right, but extremely politically dangerously for you.

So I would strongly encourage you to consider offering the Kashmiri people a referendum, as to whether they want to stay a part of India; align with Pakistan; or become independent.

This will not stop the bloodshed overnight, as we both understand, but will go a long way toward alleviating it, and give the Kashmiri people the chance to heal old wounds, and old political rivalries.

Not doing this risks escalating the probability of nuclear war between India and Pakistan over Kashmir.

Russian government spokesperson says 'the Jews' knew Donald Trump would win US election

Nope! Putin and Lavrov have not been fooled.

Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman has claimed “the Jews” knew Donald Trump would win the US election.

Maria Zakharova told a TV chat show in Russia that to gauge such political outcomes in the future, “don’t read the mainstream newspapers”.

“Our people in Brighton [Beach] will tell you everything,” she said, referring to a district of New York which is home to a large number of Jewish emigres from the former Soviet Union.

Putting on a mock-Jewish accent, the 40-year-old said Jewish people had told her: “‘Understand this – we'll donate to Clinton, of course. But we'll give the Republicans twice that amount.’

“That was it. The matter was settled for me, personally.”

Neocon ‘Blasts from the Past’ Threaten to Undermine Trump Presidency

During his uphill campaign for the Republican Party presidential nomination and subsequent race for the White House, president-elect Donald Trump called NATO «obsolete», implied that Russia had not committed «aggression» by re-incorporating Crimea following a popular referendum in that region, and proclaimed he would be an «honest broker» in negotiations between Israel and Palestine. These may be mere words, not backed up by U.S. foreign policy changes, if Trump continues to bring discredited neo-conservatives – neocons – from the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush into his inner circle of advisers and, potentially, into senior national security and foreign policy positions in his administration.

TURKISH CLIENT PAID TRUMP ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN’S COMPANY “TENS OF THOUSANDS” OF DOLLARS FOR LOBBYING

DONALD TRUMP HAS repeatedly promised to “drain the swamp” of Washington corruption. The new ethics pledge he announced Wednesday would prohibit registered lobbyists from working for his transition team or administration.

But Trump’s supposed aversion to lobbyists has not harmed the fortunes of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, one of Trump’s earliest and most visible supporters, now a vice chair of the transition team and a rumored frontrunner for the influential post of national security adviser.

On election day, Flynn published an opinion piece for The Hill urging U.S. support for Turkey’s controversial strongman president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and pushing for the extradition of Erdogan’s political rival, Fethullah Gülen, who now resides in Pennsylvania.

The U.S. Remains Deeply Complicit in the War on Yemen

The atrocious U.S.-backed war on Yemen hasn’t ended. The New York Times reports on the use of U.S. weapons sold to the Saudi-led coalition to attack critical infrastructure and purely civilian targets:

But instead of defeating the rebels, the campaign has sunk into a grinding stalemate, systematically obliterating Yemen’s already bare-bones economy. The coalition has destroyed a wide variety of civilian targets that critics say have no clear link to the rebels.

It has hit hospitals and schools. It has destroyed bridges, power stations, poultry farms, a key seaport and factories that produce yogurt, tea, tissues, ceramics, Coca-Cola and potato chips. It has bombed weddings and a funeral.

The bombing campaign has exacerbated a humanitarian crisis in the Arab world’s poorest country, where cholera is spreading, millions of people are struggling to get enough food, and malnourished babies are overwhelming hospitals, according to the United Nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here, folks, is what your US government has enabled, and endorses in Yemen: massive starvation of Yemeni kids:

Horrifying images of starving children reveal the ongoing toll of Yemen’s forgotten war

No, folks, these images have not been photoshopped; this is the outcome President Obama, a father himself, thinks is a perfectly fine outcome for Yemeni children, death by starvation.

Are you angry yet?!? If not, you should be; enough to call your senators and congressional representatives-elect, and tell them, STOP THIS GENOCIDE!!

Gold Star family exiting plane to meet soldier's remains is booed by first class passengers

Perry, an ex-Marine who lives in Stockton, said the flight to Phoenix was 45 minutes late and the crew, fearing the Gold Star family could miss their connecting flight, made an announcement for passengers to remain seated to let a "special military family" deplane first.

Perry said several passengers in first class booed, complaining that it was "baloney" and that they paid first-class fares. He said he doesn't know if the passengers from Sacramento knew there was a Gold Star family on board or whether people sitting in the coach section complained.

"It was just disgusting behavior from people in first class; it was terrible to see," Perry said.

Perry, 30, and another American soldier died of injuries inflicted by an improvised explosive device Nov. 12 inside Bagram Airfield.

The husband and father of two young children died a hero, his father said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is truly a window on the mind set of the money junkies, traveling first-class.
They don't want to understand that all wars are economic, and it is our military who ultimately pay the price. All of you who read this blog know that I abhor war as a way for the US government to resolve its geopolitical differences.

But when our soldiers die, in this country's wars, and loved ones are attempting to collect what is left of them, dammit, be respectful!! That the first class passengers' response to a small delay was to boo the grieving family is so completely declasse', childish, and out of touch, one hardly knows where to begin.

But then again, that's the money junkies for you!!

F-35 May Never Be Ready for Combat

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program is the most expensive procurement program in Pentagon history. It’s been plagued by schedule delays, gross cost overruns, and a slew of underwhelming performance reviews. Last month the Air Force declared its variant “ready for combat,” and most press reports lauded this as a signal that the program had turned a corner. But a memo issued from the Pentagon’s top testing official, based largely upon the Air Force’s own test data, showed that the Air Force’s declaration was wildly premature.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That was obvious considering that the Air Force made that declaration when major systems of the F-35 are still not delivered, such as the software for the cannon, and other systems, like the helmet, not working.

FLASHBACK:Who's Advising Mitt Romney on Foreign Policy?

With Mitt Romney's comments on Libya drawing attention today-specifically, his criticism of Obama-it's worth examining whom Romney listens to on such matters.

Dan Senor is one of Romney's closest advisers on foreign policy.

Romney keeps a large group of foreign-policy advisers, eight of whom participated in the early neoconservative group Project for a New American Century think tank, founded in 1997 and headed by William Kristol, the Nation's Ari Berman reported in May. In the same month, The New York Times' Magazine's David Sanger reported on discontent within that big team, with some complaining that Romney only listens to Bolton.

US Wrapping Up Sale Of 104 Warplanes To Qatar, Kuwait

The US State Department has authorized the sale of 104 F-15 Strike Eagle and F/A-18 warplanes to Qatar and Kuwait, a move that Washington says is aimed at bolstering foreign policy interests.

With an estimated cost of $21.1 billion, the deal with Qatar would include 72 F-15s together with “weapons and related support, equipment, and training,” said the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency in a statement.

RUSSIAN WARSHIPS PREPARE FOR LARGE-SCALE ASSAULT OFF SYRIAN COAST

On Saturday, a flotilla of Russian warships arrived off the coast of Syria. The flotilla was reportedly deployed to prepare for a large-scale land and sea assault on the ravaged city of Aleppo.

The flotilla is eight ships strong and led by Moscow’s only aircraft carrier. It is also being accompanied by a nuclear-powered missile cruiser. According to the Syrian website al-Masdar News, which the Telegraph advises is a pro-government source, the battle group is to be deployed to the region for at least six months.

Although NATO officials have said such a deployment by Russia is intended to demonstrate Moscow’s military might, the truth is that Russia is pressing on with its military operations in Syria whether or not the rest of the world is paying attention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is about to make mincemeat of the jihadists in Aleppo.

Unfortunately, these military actions will also take out trapped civilians as well.

Former US Intelligence Chief Admits Obama Took “Willful Decision” to Support ISIS Rise

If one was only to read mainstream news in the West, you would probably be inculcated with the myth that Islamic State (ISIS) appeared almost out of thin air and many governments in the Western world have been completely shocked by the rise of this terror group. Perhaps you would correctly blame the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq as a major reason why such extreme groups gained power in the region, in addition to blaming certain governments for supposedly marginalizing Sunni’s.

But what most mainstream readers will be miserably ignorant of is the fact that one of the main opposition groups fighting the Bashar al-Assad government in Syria has been ISIS itself, a group that has been trained, funded, aided and armed by NATO countries in collusion with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel (to name a few). This reality has been completely omitted in numerous corporate media publications, once again demonstrating the inept and deceptive nature of mainstream news.

Car spray-painted with anti-Trump graffiti, set on fire in SE Portland

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -
A car was spray-painted with anti-Donald Trump graffiti and then set on fire in southeast Portland.

A reward up to $1,000 is being offered to catch whoever did it.

The owner of the Ford Mustang, Jermaine Streeter, said he was out with friends and came back to find his car destroyed.

"They tagged my vehicle and burned it. You didn't have to torch my vehicle," said Streeter.

Streeter is a Marine and supports President-elect Donald Trump and had a sticker on his car to show it. He now hopes the people who tagged and burned his car are caught.

"I hope they serve some time and understand what it means to have something taken away from them that they worked hard to get.

NY Times Attacks Trump's Twitter Account As Fake News While Lying About Ivanka

The NY Times openly lies about Donald Trump and Ivanka on Twitter while labeling his Twitter account as a media outlet being used to spread fake news.

Last night Donald Trump announced that Ford has reversed their decision to move Lincoln factories to Mexico but instead will work with the Trump administration to keep the factories and the jobs inside the United States.

Of course, this has sparked outrage in the liberal elitist media who immediately went to work claim Donal Trump is lying about the announcement even though it has been confirmed by Bloomberg and other news outlets.

In smearing the announcement, the NY Times attacked Donald Trump's Twitter account as being used as media outlet to spread this fake news.

The NY Times then went onto to spread lies about Ivanka being in charge of Trump's blind trust.

This was done to smear Trump by fabricating a conflict of interest because Trump's daughter attended yesterday's meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

“My goal is to establish a foreign policy that will endure for several generations. That’s why I also look and have to look for talented experts with approaches and practical ideas, rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect résumés but very little to brag about except responsibility for a long history of failed policies and continued losses at war.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

For those who believe Donald Trump will put an end to decades of war and interventionism, consider his possible selection as secretary of defense. Senator Tom Cotton is a senator from Arkansas. He sits on the Armed Services Committee and is a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations. Cotton is considered a “hawk,” in other words, a neocon. Speaking at the Defense One Summit in Washington Thursday, Cotton said Trump will confront Russia. “I believe Donald Trump will be viewed, not just by Putin but by other world leaders, as taking a tougher line” against Russia, he said. Russia “has to have a new set of boundaries. They have to recognize that we are going to stand by our alliance structures,” according to the senator.

McCain to Trump: Don't You Dare Make Peace with Russia!

Sit down. This is going to shock you. (Not). We reported yesterday on the telephone call between US president-elect Trump and Russian president Putin, where the current and future presidents discussed the need to set aside differences and look to more constructive future relations. With serious observers of this past year's increasing tensions between US and Russia openly worrying about a nuclear war breaking out, with some 300,000 NATO troops placed on Russia's border, with sanctions hurting average businesspersons on both sides, a normal person might look at the slight thaw in Cold War 2.0 as an early positive indicator of the end of the Obama Era.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) begs to differ.

In a blistering statement he released today responding to the Trump/Putin telephone call, Sen. McCain condemned any efforts by President-elect Trump to find common ground with Putin.

Disgraceful WaPo Anti-Putin Editorial

On November 15, neocon WaPo editors headlined “The United States is giving Putin the green light for atrocities,” saying:

Hours after Putin and Trump spoke by phone, “Russia and its Syrian allies launched a massive new bombing campaign against eastern Aleppo and other rebel-held territories.”

Fact: False! WaPo editors lied. No attack on Aleppo was launched so far. No “rebel-held areas” exist, only US-supported terrorist-infested ones.

WaPo: “There are no Islamic State forces in Aleppo, though Mr. Trump does not appear to be aware of that fact.”

Fact: There may or may not be. All anti-government forces in Syria are imported jihadist death squads. A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist, all of them, including ones masquerading as moderate rebels.

WaPo: “Mr. Putin’s evident aim is to support the Assad regime in a campaign to overrun the city, and perhaps other rebel-held areas, during the 2months of the US presidential transition.”

Trump’s Slim Chance for Greatness.

Or, to put it in a vernacular that Trump might use, does he want to be “Paul Ryan’s bitch” on domestic policies? And does he want to surrender his foreign policy to the “wise guys” of Washington’s neocon establishment.

Castigating the US electorate as accomplices and facilitators of wars, or, at best, dismissing the voters as ignorant sheep-people (‘sheeple’) herded by political elites, describes a partial reality. Public opinion polls, even the polls overwhelmingly slanted toward the center-right, consistently describe a citizenry opposed to militarism and wars, past and present.

Both the Right and Left have failed to grasp the contradiction that defines US political life: Namely, the profound gap between the American public and the Washington elite on questions of war and peace within an electoral process that consistently leads to more militarism.

This is an analysis of the most recent US public opinion polls with regard to outcome of the recent elections. The essay concludes with a discussion of the deep-seated contradictions and proposes several ways in which these contradictions can be resolved.

Your Government Wants to Militarize Social Media to Influence Your Beliefs

A global conference of senior military and intelligence officials taking place in London this week reveals how governments increasingly view social media as “a new front in warfare” and a tool for the Armed Forces.

The overriding theme of the event is the need to exploit social media as a source of intelligence on civilian populations and enemies; as well as a propaganda medium to influence public opinion.

A report from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) last month revealed how a CIA-funded tool, Geofeedia, was already being used by police to conduct surveillance of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to monitor activists and protesters.

Although Facebook and Twitter both quickly revoked Geofeedia’s access to their social feeds, the conference proves that social media surveillance remains a rapidly growing industry with no regulatory oversight. And its biggest customers are our own governments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This means that all peace activists who abhor violence, and never advocate for it, must work more closely together to get the facts out, as honestly as humanly possible, so that people can make truly educated, critical-thinking informed decisions, when governments advocate for war, which governments (particularly that of the US Government), will consistently do for economic reasons.

Please consider WRH as your antidote to those who advocate for war and destruction.

Obama Tries to Cover Tracks by Ordering a Mop Up of Jabhat al-Nusra Leaders

But when Trump surprised everyone by winning the recent presidential election, the Obama administration has started covering up its criminal activities in the remaining 70 days before the new president is inaugurated. Thus, the group that was engaged in a number of fishy schemes of the neocons over the years has found itself in the “to be cleaned up” list.

Pentagon knows the location of every hiding that shelters terrorist leaders, as it has been been repeatedly stated by US officials, however those hidings remained undamaged for years. Before Trump got elected a single successful operation was carried out that actually resulted in a Jabhat al-Nusra commander being killed, but it remains unclear whether this operation was carried out by the Russians or the Americans, which leads us to the conclusion that Washington is more interested in propaganda wars than in actual struggle against terrorists.

Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield is Shielding What? Deconstructing Syria, Turkey’s illegal Invasion

Turkey, in a bid to legitimize its uninvited, illegal incursion into northern Syria, has created several media platforms specifically reporting on what it calls “Operation Euphrates Shield.”

Operation Euphrates Shield, according to official Turkish government statements, aims at “securing” a buffer zone in northern Syria spanning from the Euphrates river in the east and extending all the way to Azaz in the west. This is also coincidentally the exact same buffer zone US policy think tanks have called for since at least 2012 – specifically seeking Turkey to implement it.

Despite claims that Turkey’s actions are necessary to “stop” the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) and help end the deadly conflict raging in Syria, it is clear that instead, Turkey is carving out territory specifically to shelter militants fighting the Syrian government in an attempt to perpetuate, even expand the violence for as long and as extensively as possible.

Saudis Deliberately Targeting Civilian Infrastructure in Yemen War

Since the March 2015 Saudi invasion of Yemen, Saudi-coalition airstrikes have killed a preposterous number of civilian bystanders, and repeatedly hit places like schools and hospitals across the country. While the Saudis are forever downplaying such incidents, the reality of the Saudi air war is becoming increasingly apparent. It is a war not against the Shi’ite Houthi movement, but against Yemen’s population and economy.

Even sources like the New York Times are starting to take notice that this is less an anti-rebel campaign and instead a war of systematically obliterating Yemen’s already bare-bones economy, targeting anything and everything and claiming “suspicion” if asked about it.

Indeed, as much attention as blowing up a hospital gets, in many cases the more harmful strikes are against places like food processors and basic industries, whose destruction exacerbates chronic food shortages in the nation and ensures that any post-war reconstruction will be arduously slow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out that what the NYT is just beginning to wrap its collective editorial head around, WRH has been covering, in terms of these war crimes, almost from the inception of this US government enabled Saudi attack against Yemen.

And what has been the ultimate result of the Saudi naval blockade of Yemen?!?

I will show you now, and this stuff has not been photoshopped or altered in any way: Yemen's kids are starving to death, due to this blockade.

Images of Yemeni children, starving due to the Saudi naval blockade

Don't you DARE turn your eyes away from this horrific, US-government enabled war crime of starving children!

And apparently, our President, Barack Obama, a father himself, thinks that this horrific suffering, on the part of Yemen's kids, is a perfectly logical outcome of the Saudi attack against Yemen.

Would someone from the Nobel Prize Nominating Committee in Oslo, who has the "gonadal tissue" to do so, please rescind Obama's Nobel Peace Prize for allowing this to have happened?!?

Obama Expected to Demand Greece Close its Ports to Russian Warships

‘Who’ll boss us around?’: Russian FM spokeswoman translates NATO chief’s call on Trump

According to Zakharova, the NATO chief was really wondering: “Who’s going to pay the bills and boss us around? Who’s going to fund all this obscurantism, which we promote by Washington’s merit? As, in the past few years, we’ve forgotten how to think or act by ourselves.”

George W. Bush Paints Portraits Of The Veterans Who Were “Injured Carrying Out My Orders”

By John Vibes

This Veterans Day, former president George W. Bush revealed one of his favorite hobbies and talents, painting portraits. However, there was an extremely disturbing twist.

This week, Bush posted a photo to his official Instagram account, showing himself in an art room painting portraits of the veterans who were injured carrying out his orders. He was even brazen enough to describe the situation in those exact words...

US Should Attack Daesh Terrorists, Not President Assad: Trump

US President-elect Donald Trump says the United States should fight the Daesh terrorist group, but stop attacking the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Trump should resist neocon & shadow gov’t influence to justify people’s hopes – Ron Paul

Trump’s ability to honor his campaign rhetoric will depend on the role of the so-called “shadow government.”

“Unfortunately, there has been several neoconservatives that are getting closer to Trump. And if he gets his advice from them then I do not think that is a good sign,” Paul told the host of RT’s Crosstalk show Peter Lavelle.

Russia Puts Strategic Bombers On Combat Alert For Imminent Strikes On Syrian Targets

While America is busy pointing fingers at who exactly failed to predict the Trump presidency, Putin is taking advantage of the chaos and the immediate political power vacuum left in the aftermath of the stunning transition from the Democratic president to a Republican sweep.

First, as we reported last night, NATO promptly freaked out after Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov urged President-elect Donald Trump to begin rebuilding the U.S.-Kremlin relationship "by urging NATO to withdraw forces from the Russian border." Peskov told the Associated Press that such a move "would lead to a kind of detente in Europe."

TRUMP: DON’T FOLLOW THE BUSH-OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY LEGACY

Eight years ago, President Obama had a chance to change the warmongering direction that outgoing President Bush and the U.S. national-security establishment had led America for the previous eight years. Obama could have said, “Enough is enough. America has done enough killing and dying. I’m going to lead our country in a different direction — toward peace, prosperity, and harmony with the people of the world.” He could have ordered all U.S. troops in the Middle East and Afghanistan to return home. He could have ended U.S. involvement in the endless wars that Bush, the Pentagon, and the CIA spawned in that part of the world. He could have led America in a new direction.

Instead, Obama decided to stay Bush’s course, no doubt believing that he, unlike Bush, could win the endless wars that Bush had started. It was not to be. He chose to keep the national-security establishment embroiled in Afghanistan and Iraq. Death and destruction are Obama’s legacy, just as they were Bush’s.

NATO Panics As Putin Urges Trump To Force Alliance Withdrawal From Russian Border

While many in the media have speculated that the Kremlin had a hand in Wikileaks' procurement of hacked Podesta emails - something Julian Assange denied last week - and US intelligence services officially accused Russian government-supported hackers of interfering with the US election (providing zero proof for the allegation), the truth is that Vladimir Putin is delighted with the outcome from the US elections: not so much for Hillary's loss as that the sharp, neo-con wing in the Pentagon has been muted for the next four years.

What Donald Trump Needs To Do

There has never been a better-suited and more experienced President when it comes to these issues...

Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America, there are a lot of things he needs to do.

He has seen firsthand the unseemly underbelly of the various Deep State actors that have fought tooth and nail to both undermine and character assassinate him, as well as destroy him personally and professionally.

But Donald Trump is made of legendary stuff, and not only endured these constant and underhanded attacks, but also exposed and destroyed them all, one by one.

Neocons Trying to Sneak Into Trump Administration

It’s a cliche to say that the cushiest positions of influence in any US administration go to figures who were seen to have brought something to the table during the campaign. Yet with the election of Donald Trump, a lot of high-ranking neoconservatives are expecting the exact opposite, figuring that they can step right into positions of power and influence despite openly campaigning against Trump.

NUSRA ON THE RUN - TRUMP INDUCES FIRST MAJOR POLICY CHANGE ON SYRIA

The Obama administration, through the CIA led by Saudi asset John Brennan, fed weapons, training and billions of dollarsto "moderate rebels". These then turned around (vid) and either gave the CIA gifts to al-Qaeda in Syria (aka Jabhat al Nusra) or joined it themselves. The scheme was no secret at all and Russia as well as Syria pointed this out several times. The Russian foreign Minister Lavrov negotiated with the U.S. secretary of State Kerry who promised to separate the "moderate rebels" from al-Qaeda. But Kerry never delivered. Instead he falsely accuse Russia of committing atrocities that never happened. The CIA kept the upper hand within the Obama administration and continued its nefarious plans.

HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY! FLASHBACK - Homeless Vet Forced From Shelter And Freezes To Death… Just Across Town ‘Refugees’ Get Free Housing And Food

This is what happens when bleeding heart liberals (is there any other kind?) decide that bringing in refugees is more important than addressing homelessness in their own nation. This happened in Sweden in early January. But it’s also happening here in America.

‘Refugees’ arriving in Sweden are plied with an endless list of entitlements, as seen in the video. But during the same time frame this family was getting free housing, a homeless Swedish vet froze to death.

The European ”humanitarian superpower” Sweden does its very best to please Muslim asylum seekers, by providing them with both food, clothing and shelter, but it seems the country’s own ethnic citizens in need are of less importance and forgotten.

Armistice Day 98 Years On and the Need for a Peace to End All Wars

November 11 is Armistice Day / Remembrance Day. Ninety-eight years ago, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, fighting ceased in the “war to end all wars.” People went on killing and dying right up until the pre-designated moment, impacting nothing other than our understanding of the stupidity of war.

VETERAN'S DAY - WALTER LEWIS SMITH

But as I think back on him, I know for a fact that he and the millions of others who served in all the various wars the United States became entangled in would be shocked and saddened to see that the government for which they sacrificed so much has become the very embodiment of all that they fought so hard against. No more First Amendment, warrantless spying on Americans, show trials, confessions extracted by torture, rigged elections; for this Walter gave up a lung?

So, this week, in between the sporting events and the barbecues, take a moment to look at the flag for what it used to represent rather than the globally hated symbol it has since become. Consider all those in your family who risked and sometimes lost all in America's wars, and decide for yourself how they would feel about the government of this nation as it exists today.

The 47% Who Voted For War Against Russia

Hillary Clinton on many occasions and consistently said that as President she would impose a no-fly zone over Syria, as she and President Obama had done in 2011 in Libya. She said this though Russian planes and missiles have been flying over Syria since 30 September 2015, at the invitation of the legitimate and universally recognized government of Syria, whereas the U.S. and its allies are only invaders in Syria and in that country would be killing not only Syrians but also Russians. (By contrast: Russian planes weren’t defending Muammar Gaddafi’s government.) She said this though America’s imposing a no-fly zone anywhere in Syria would mean the U.S. shooting down Russian planes and missiles, and Russia shooting down American planes and missiles, thus constituting the first-ever direct warfare between Russia and the United States.

The Fiction of “Fighting the Islamic State”, An Entity Created and Financed by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia

The German government and other governments in the West in conjunction with their mass media are giving the strong impression that arms transfers to the Iraqi Kurds is the only possibility to prevent the impending catastrophe. All the other short- and long-term alternatives have not even been taken into consideration. All indications put forward by experts regarding the dramatic consequences of military support of the Iraqi Kurds are being systematically ignored. Therefore, Western governments raise the suspicion that humanitarian motives to protect the Yazidis merely constitute a fabricated pretext to enforce their own interests.

While the attention of the US public is decidedly focused upon the outcome of the presidential election

US-controlled NATO has announced an unprecedented escalating of its aggressive encirclement of Russia with military assets and troops. Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg said in a statement that 300,000 troops have now been placed in a state of “high alert” in order to deter Russia who, according to NATO, has been “much more active in many different ways.” This new activity includes “Russia using propaganda in Europe among NATO allies,” which Stoltenberg says is “exactly the reason why NATO is responding […] with the biggest reinforcement of our collective defense since the end of the Cold War.” Adam Thomson, an outgoing representative to NATO, has estimated that the new 300,000 troops would be capable of deploying within 180 days, adding that speeding up the speed of deployment is of great importance.

Assad Adviser Says We Are In A Time That Will Determine The Future Of The World

By Brandon Turbeville

As the war in Syria continues to rage on, it is becoming more and more obvious that the battle taking place is about much more than Syria as a country. In this place, the cradle of civilization, there are now two warring ideologies. One that demands total fealty and the absence of all dissent, and one that believes a nation’s people should decide for themselves the direction of their country. One ideology wants to force its hegemonic world system upon all other nations, and the other contends that nations should choose their own direction.

This is not to argue perfection on the part of Syria or Russia by any means. But it is a reality nonetheless...

Newsweek magazine jumped the gun, printing a special edition, distributing it to outlets before November 8 – Hillary on the cover below the heading “MADAM PRESIDENT.”
