Activists rebrand Brand Israel conference as ‘Brand Apartheid’

Students disrupted a Brand Israel conference at New York University, holding a silent protest while former Israeli ambassador Ido Aharoni closed the daylong forum last Friday with a summary of branding techniques applicable to the Jewish state.

With signs reading “Israel’s Brand: Stolen Land” and “Brand Apartheid,” the five NYU undergraduate students shuffled into the conference room and sat close to the front of the room, waiting for keynote speaker Aharoni to begin his closeout of NYU’s Places As Brands Conference before unfurling their signs.

The room was dismayed by the protest but the students remained steadfast, keeping their signs held high throughout Aharoni’s talk, despite attempts by a conference organizer to remove them.

FLASHBACK - Israeli 1982 Plan for Mideast Empire Aided by ISIS

Recently, the German-language website “National Journal” illustrated the surprising, key role the Islamic State (IS), also known as ISIS, plays in the success of this Zionist quest for regional domination—although ostensibly Israel’s enemy.

The Yinon Plan stated that Iraq was then the greatest obstacle to an Israeli Middle Eastern empire and control of the area’s wealth of natural resources. The first stage was to weaken both Iran—an Israeli ally under the shah—and Iraq through war against each other. After this, the American invasion in 2003 was to lead to the division of Iraq into three smaller, ethno-religious states operated by Sunni and Shiite Muslims in the middle and south, and a new Kurdistan in the north.

ISIS is the means by which Israel and the United States—which established, trained and supplied the terrorist organization—have nearly succeeded in the tripartition.

Former British Ambassador To Syria Warns That ‘Fake Flag’ Attacks Are Being Used And Will Increase.

Former British Ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, says the recent gas attack could have been the work of Assad’s enemies to create a pretext to attack Syria. He cited the lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that did not exist but, nevertheless, were the excuse for launching a war there. He says there will be more attacks, because Trump is told they are real, and they pressure him to react with military action.

On a positive note, it has been a good development that the Trump administration has owned the “regime change” policy of the Obama administration in Syria by launching cruise missiles strike against the Syrian air force in al-Shayrat air base.

A Multi-Level Analysis of the US Cruise Missile Attack on Syria and Its Consequences

The latest US cruise missile attack on the Syrian airbase is an extremely important event in so many ways that it is important to examine it in some detail. I will try to do this today with the hope to be able to shed some light on a rather bizarre attack which will nevertheless have profound consequences. But first, let’s begin by looking at what actually happened.

However, since the Russians were warned about the attack they had plenty of time to prepare their electronic warfare stations to “fry” and otherwise disable at least part of the cruise missiles. I do believe that this is the correct explanation.

Iran the Destabilizer: A world in turmoil, thank you Mr. Trump!

Philip Giraldi • April 11, 2017

The real Donald Trump has been exposed. The man who promised a sensible and non-interventionist Middle Eastern policy and a reset with Moscow has now reneged on both pledges. His nitwit United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has directly linked Russia and Syria for punishment by the omnipotent Leader of the Free World lest anyone be confused.

The unconscionable attack on Syria based on the usual unsubstantiated allegations has shifted the playing field dramatically, with the “new sheriff in town” apparently intent on proving he is a real man who can play hardball with the rest of them. Last week Syria was blamed by all and sundry in the Establishment for an alleged chemical weapons attack just two days after the White House backed away from the Obama Administration demand that President Bashar al-Assad be removed.

President Trump, with respect, start ruthlessly purging the U.S. general officer corps

Last time we discussed your refusal to abide by the Constitution’s hard-and-fast war-making provision, a decision that merits — as it did for most of your post-1945 predecessors — impeachment proceedings. Waging war in the manner you did in Syria is the work of an absolute monarch or a dictator, not that of a popularly elected president of this republic.

Today, we must discuss a topic that has been covered in this space on multiple occasions; namely, the need for you to immediately purge — via forced retirement — scores of your general officers. The American fetish for treating these officers as god-like wonders is baseless, and must be curtailed to the greatest possible extent. Among the most obvious reasons they merit forced retirement are:

–They and their predecessors have not won a war since 1945. In truth, they have won nothing in the most war-filled 72 years in American history.

U.S. About to be Blindsided By Multiple Wars And Simultaneous Economic Collapse (Video)

Ignorance is bliss, but in the real world, it is also very dangerous. And most Americans today are living in a state of blissful ignorance, content that everything will be alright because a talking head on television said so. Meanwhile, our debt-fueled economy could implode at any time and military tensions in the Middle East, North Korea, and with Russia and Iran have escalated tremendously.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at how since Trump’s election, many conservatives have been lulled into a false sense of security that is out of touch with reality. The fact is that almost three quarters of American citizens are living paycheck to paycheck, and Russia and Iran have stated that they will respond with force to any further aggression in Syria.

3-minute Star Wars video requests UNICEF donations to save ~20,000 Earth children dying daily from preventable poverty WHILE corporate media ongoingly distracts from ‘former’ colonial nations’ reneged UN promises since 1969 to save ALL children

We the People notice powerful organizations asking for our donations to “save the children;” in retail stores, charity organizations, and now from Star Wars:

The lie of omission is that so-called “developed” and “former” colonial nations have promised the end of all poverty since 1969, with their reneged promises since then causing slow, horrific deaths of over 600 million children; roughly twice to the total population of the US (perhaps closer to one billion; documentation of poverty facts here).

Consider for a moment what could possibly be more important to report upon, possible motivation to hide this ongoing reneged promise, and why US "leaders" give rhetoric to "care about children" while omitting the greatest need for care.

Chemical Weapons Explosion In Syria: Another False Flag Attack By The Usual Perps (Video)

Motive, motive, motive…or in this case, a lack of it. Fact is that Assad, well on the way to winning the civil war, had zero motives to use chemical weapons. And as we see now, the attack is being used not just to justify increased military action in Syria, but to vilify Russia as well. Neocon warmonger John McCain has even gone as far as accusing Russia of targeting hospitals in Aleppo, which is a war crime.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the real benefactors of the resulting increased military actions in Syria and the rhetoric against Russia. Trump had made it clear that he intended to improve our relationship with the Russians; a wise move considering their status as a world superpower. But this is of course contrary to the agenda of the Deep State; is it possible that this chemical attack is a false flag that is ultimately not about Syria, but Russia?

Vladimir Putin says US is preparing to bomb Syrian capital and will blame devastation on Bashar-al Assad's forces

Vladimir Putin has sensationally claimed that the US is preparing airstrikes on the Syrian capital - and will pin the blame on Bashar-al Assad's forces.

Putin insisted Russia would tolerate Western criticism of its role in Syria but hoped that attitudes would eventually soften.

But his claims that Russia has information strikes are being planned by the US on the southern Damascus region - the aim of which is to blame the resulting devastation on the subsequently discredited Syrian government - will not go down well in the White House.

Weaponization of Social Media: Takeover of Global Digital Infrastructure (video)

In 2017, social media has just become another mundane part of life, but most people never stop to think of just how powerful it really is. The Arab Spring revolutions back in 2011 could not have happened without social media; since then governments have woken up to just how much of a threat social media can pose.

There's a terrifying sense of deja vu as the Generals take over the White House and guide us towards another war (despite no-one knowing if it was Assad who used sarin on those civilians) says JOHN R BRADLEY

For those of us who covered the build-up to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, there is a terrifying sense of deja vu as another 'Coalition of the Willing' gears up to launch a potentially devastating wave of shock-and-awe in the Middle East.

That is certainly one worst-case interpretation of the comments made yesterday by the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.
Confirming a remarkable U-turn in the Trump administration's stance on Syria, she said that removing President Bashar al-Assad was now a 'priority'.

Fourteen years ago we heard similar shrill calls from political leaders for regime change in Iraq, a country that – whether or not it used chemical weapons on its own people – posed no discernible threat to the national security of our own.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that the US will most probably be going to war with Russia over Syria, which didn't happen in the Iraq war, is, as Josh Gates, host of the "Destination Unknown" series frequently states, officially horrible.

The spectre of the US military going to war against the Russian military, which:

1. Does conscript
2. Has better functioning weapons than does the US military
3. Has the money to pursue such a war
4. Has the manufacturing to feed the war machine

should be pretty terrifying to anyone with family and friends in the military.

Why the World Should Fear Deep State Psychopath H.R. McMaster

The CIA/NSA political hit on General Michael Flynn appeared at first to have been a warning shot against Trump, and the Congress’ (((bipartisan))) support of replacement H.R. McMaster for the role of National Security Advisor has us falsely assuming that the duly-elected Executive Branch would retain control of him, as the Constitution commands.

But that assumption is increasingly proving false. There is no doubt in my mind that President Donald Trump is being held under duress; that is a theory and I don’t have hard evidence for, but it’s clear that overnight he has gone from a roaring, defiant lion, to script reading pussy-cat. The empowerment of Kushner and Cohn, the increasing isolation of Bannon, and a 180 on policy all come shortly after McMaster’s ascension.

General Mc. Master, a word, please: I will continue to link to rt.com; sputniknews.com; presstv.com; and farsnews.com (two Russian, and two Iranian English blogs) until US law forbids it.

And THAT is a Supreme Court case, against the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, I would love to see argued!!

The American people now understand that you are pushing President Trump for a ground invasion of Syria (which will, of course, most generally mean war with Russia) Mc Master working covertly with Petraeus to put 150,000 ground troops in Syria,and I feel urged to caution you and our President that this is nothing short of foaming-at-the-mouth, barking-dog madness!!

You, of all people, should know that the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money; or the manufacturing to ensure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

In order to win a conflict, a country has to be on the right side of history; and with Syria, and Russia's involvement in assisting the Syrian government against the jihadists, the US just isn't, and you should know that as well.

Is Sunday the End of the Road for Turkey as a Secular Country?

Turkey has long been a shining (only) example of how a Muslim majority country can exist as a progressive society with freedoms, rights and a secular rule of law. But slowly, as power has become more centralized in the hands of President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, the liberty and secularism that made Turkey so unique has been eroded. The culmination of this is coming on Sunday as Turks go to the polls to vote on a referendum to change the very system of government from a Parliamentary Democracy, to a bastardized Presidential Dictatorship.

It's not just Syria. Trump is ratcheting up wars across the world

onald Trump’s missile strikes on Syria have attracted worldwide attention (and disgraceful plaudits) in recent days. But much less airtime is being given to his administration’s risky and increasingly barbaric military escalations on several other fronts across the world.

Let’s put aside, for the time being, that the Trump administration openly admits it has no clue what it is going to do in Syria next. Or that key members of Congress and in the administration are clearly eager for “regime change” in Syria with no plan for the aftermath. And the fact that hardly anyone seems to care that Russia’s former president Dmitry Medvedev said over the weekend that Syrian strikes put the US “on the verge of a military clash with Russia” – a nuclear power with thousands of warheads.

Donald Trump's first 100 days as president – daily updates

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely the kind of outcome I had hoped a Trump presidency would avoid.

My sense of betrayal by these actions on the part of the President, is searingly intense, and beyond my ability to fully articulate it.

And the sense I have of the future, for this country and the world, is Biblically apocalyptic in nature.

Because of Bernie Sanders getting cheated by the DNC for the Democratic nomination for President, American voters had only one choice: that of the war party and the American deep state.

Grumpy Grandpa McCain Gets His Way: Trump Approves Montenegro Joining NATO

American soldiers are now obligated to go to war with anyone who attacks some country most Americans have never heard of.

You'll remember John McCain called for Montenegro to join NATO last month because of "Muh Putin aggression" and called Rand Paul a Putin agent on the floor of the Senate for disagreeing with him.

Tillerson: US Will Punish Crimes ‘Anywhere in the World’

Donald Trump the presidential candidate made it very clear that his view was that the United States can no longer police thje world. President Trump, by contrast, appears to laying out US foreign policy to do that now more than ever.

In the ultimate expression of the “world’s policeman” stance of the US, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declared today that the United States was prepared to punish all those “who commit crimes against the innocents anywhere in the world.”

The context of Tillerson’s comments was a speech at a memorial to a Nazi massacre, but the broadness of the declaration clearly was intended to go far beyond simply being a reiteration of the US justification for intervention against Nazi Germany in World War 2.

For one, the comment comes just a few days after the United States attacked Syria, over US allegations of a “gas attack” carried out by the Syrian government, but before any sort of international investigation could be carried out on the claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the United States government has just declared itself "Judge, jury, and executioner..." for the entire world?!?

And NOT the US's military might to further US government's geopolitical agenda?!?

I'd laugh at Tillerson's statement...if it wasn't so hard to stop laughing these days!!

Tillerson Warns Russia: Assad Rule ‘Coming to an End’

On the eve of his visit to Moscow, and in the wake of a Kremlin announcement he won’t be meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at all, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson continued to lash Russia publicly for backing the Syrian government, insisting that President Bashar Assad’s rule is “coming to an end.”

Whether thus amounts to a statement of US policy is unclear, as US officials have been send very mixed messages on their stance on Syria, after attacking them last week. Tillerson himself insisted just days ago that Assad’s future was still up to the Syrians, despite having announced before that that the US was in the process of implementing regime change.

Tillerson went on to predict that if Russia refused US demands to abandon Assad, they would effectively become “irrelevant” in the Middle East. This echoes other US officials’ demands that Russia unconditionally abandon Assad, amid ongoing allegations of Russian complicity in a putative gas attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly think these threats to Russia are for domestic, rather than Russian, consumption.

Russia is highly unlikely to unwind its position of total support for the Al Assad regime; Tillerson understands that.

But these threats/statements seem to me to be" engineered" to "groom" the US public into accepting a war against both Syria and Russia.

The harsh reality that such a move would be one of the most ham-fistedly pig-headedly stupid thing for the US government to do, and appears to be an act of desperation on the cusp of madness, in a futile attempt to keep the US economy from crashing into the death spasms it can most probably not avoid, given the current "bubbles" in the system which cannot exist for very much longer.

and BTW, look for the draft to be reinstituted, under President Trump's watch.
