AP Interview: Saudi royal says crown prince is here to stay

A prominent Saudi royal said Saturday that whether or not heads of state gathered in Argentina next week for the Group of 20 summit warmly engage with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, he is someone "that they have to deal with."

Prince Turki al-Faisal told The Associated Press the killing of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul last month is "an unacceptable incident that tars and mars the long record of Saudi Arabia's own standing in the world."

"We will have to bear that. It's not something that should not be faced. And we do face it," he said.

Intelligence officials and analysts say the operation to kill Khashoggi, who wrote critically of the crown prince for The Washington Post, could not have happened without Prince Mohammed's knowledge. The kingdom, which has offered several conflicting accounts of the killing, denies the crown prince had any involvement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I look at this with extreme skepticism, because even without "L'affaire Khoshoggi", the man has ordered the deaths of thousands of innocent Yemeni people, in order to control Yemen's oil, which amounts to 90% of Yemen's economy The Economy of Yemen

As a Saudi family royal, Crown Prince Bin Salman enjoys many honorifics, honorable titles to his name; but the one by which he will be most probably remembered, is that of "The Butcher of Yemen", aided and abetted in his war crimes by Amerika's Merchant of Death in Chief, President Donald Trump.

New Study Reveals Surprising Truths About Conspiracy Theories

The study polled people from 9 different countries over a six-year period and was performed by researchers at the University of Cambridge and YouGov, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. This study is the deepest ever conducted on the subject and marks the first time academics have explored questions of conspiracy beliefs, social trust, and news consumption habits across different countries.

#FakeNews Media all share same photo of “women & kids gassed”.

Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini just declared himself the leader of the Europe’s future. He refuses to budge one inch in negotiations with the European Union over Italy’s budget now threatening to take down the government.

And in doing this he not only speaks for Italians, he is now speaking for that growing part of the European population who sees what the EU is morphing into and recoiling in horror.

Protests in France over Emmanuel Macron’s new tax on diesel have turned violent. The British leadership has completely betrayed the people over Brexit. They may win this battle but the animosity towards the Britain’s leadership will only grow more virulent over time.

Trump’s Foreign Policy War on Americans

The funny thing is that Trump himself seems to be working hardest to persuade those supporters that he has no intention of changing U.S. foreign policy. He would no more liquidate America’s global empire than liquidate his own global business empire. Alas, America is not going anywhere. Sure, he may hector imperial allies to spend more on their militaries (while insisting he respects their sovereignty), but that’s just a show. He’s an all-in imperialist, so we shouldn’t be fooled by the staged populism that sometimes is mistaken for come-home-Americanism. America First in practice embodies George H. W. Bush’s summation of America’s foreign policy: “What we say goes.”

As Glenn Greenwald writes about Trump’s disgusting relationship with Saudi Arabia, it’s “a perfect example — perhaps stated a little more bluntly and candidly than usual — of how the US has conducted itself in the world since at least the end of World War II.”

US Training 30,000 Syrian Kurdish Fighters to ‘Contain Iran’

Following Defense Secretary James Mattis’ announcement that the US is building observation posts on the Syria-Turkey border, officials are also starting a training program for the Kurdish YPG’s Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The plan is to train 30,000 more SDF fighters, which are being presented as a plan to both combat what ISIS fighters remain and to “contain Iran.” If the training plan is successful, it would bring the SDF to 90,000 fighters.

There are reasons to be skeptical, however, as the US has had several training schemes for groups in Syria in the past, and has tended to produce but tiny fractions of their intended numbers. Even then, those newly-trained fighters have proved to be of limited effectiveness and questionable loyalty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But, if these fighters do wind up "defeating both Syrian and Iranian operatives, what happens then?!?

Has Sec Def Mattis promised them a permanent "homeland", by telling them that it will let them occupy certain sections of Syria, permanently?!?

And have Presidents Putin; and Al Assad;and Edrogan gotten the memo yet on this move?!?

Russia Blocks Ukrainian Navy From Militarizing The Sea of Azov - Updated

The Ukrainian government under the oligarch Petro Poroshenko is in election campaign mode. That is one reason why it is launching new provocations against Russia. Yesterday Ukrainian forces reportedly occupied a town within the neutral zone between the government controlled part and the rebel held Donetsk area. Today the Ukrainian navy sent a tug and two small gun boats, recently acquired from the U.S. Coast Guard, Ukrainian build Gurza-M class types, to pass through the Kerch Strait into the Sea of Azov.

When the ships entered Russian waters without announcing their intent, a Russian coast guard ship rammed (vid) and damaged the tug. The two gun boats escaped but did not pass the strait. The pictures show the melee at sea.

Ukraine’s army put on full combat alert - Defense Ministry

The Ukrainian armed forces have been put on full combat alert by the decision of the chief of the country’s General Staff, the press service of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry reported on Monday.

"In accordance with the National Security and Defense Council’s decision on imposing martial law, the chief of the General Staff and commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s armed forces ordered to put the Ukrainian armed forces’ units on full combat alert," the press service said.

Due to the situation in the Kerch Strait, National Security and Defense Council Secretary Alexander Turchinov earlier voiced the initiative on imposing martial law in the country for 60 days backed by the Ukrainian president. Now this bill is to be considered by Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament). According to its speaker Andrei Parubiy, its meeting will be convened on Monday at 16:00 local time (17:00 Moscow time).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Poroshenko is using this incident to put off elections, which must be voted upon by its Parliament no later than 21 December. The timing means that the elections cannot be held at the end of March, for their Parliament to vote on in by 21 December.

But the larger matter is, if in fact Ukraine declares war on Russia, ( a quite idiotic thing for Ukraine to do, BTW), but if that happens, please ,where does it put US military assistance to Kiev?!?

The Inversion Agenda

We are now living in the last stage of a plan to invert the individual and society from natural order. The plan will be deemed a success when most human beings on the planet live inverted to their biology and nature, and come to believe that an inverted reality has always been a normal state of affairs.

The elites are performing the inversion to weaken man to such an extent that their rule will never be threatened. In effect, they are creating a permanent slave class that will be as incapable of overthrowing their masters as a herd of cows is incapable of killing the farmer who owns them, even though those cows descended from powerful bulls that could only be handled with specialized training or weapons. There is no better way to weaken humans than to take away their natural strengths, pit them against each other through a multitude of invented identities, and convince them that strength can only come in hedonistic pleasure that focuses around food, entertainment, and sodomy.

CONGRESSIONALLY MANDATED NEW REPORT URGES MASSIVE US MILITARY INCREASES

The Commission on National Defense Strategy for the US has just released to Congress its report "Providing for the Common Defense”, and it opens:

“In the National Defense Authorization Act of 2017, Congress charged this Commission with providing an independent, nonpartisan review of the 2018 National Defense Strategy and issues of US defense strategy and policy more broadly.”

The report’s co-chairs, Eric S. Edelman and Gary Roughead, say in their accompanying letter to Congress, that “the United States will soon face a national security emergency.”

UKRAINE DECLARES MARTIAL LAW AS RUSSIA REFUSES TO RELEASE CAPTURED SHIPS

Seemingly out of nowhere, a diplomatic crisis has erupted between Ukraine and Russia after Russia detained three Ukrainian ships which it said had been "maneuvering dangerously" near the Kerch Strait - a crucial choke point controlled by Russia which separates the Sea of Azov From the Black Sea. In response to what he decried as unprovoked Russian aggression, increasingly unpopular Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a declaration on Monday to declare martial law for 60 days through Jan. 26. He also started mobilizing the Ukrainian army despite the martial law order still needing approval by the country's Parliament, according to RT.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This issue of "martial law" will most probably extend well into the next election cycle, meaning that it has been engineered by Poroshenko to prevent the elections from being held at all.

Google states: "Thus, the 2019 Ukrainian presidential election should take place on 31 March 2019. The Ukrainian parliament must approve the date of the presidential election no later than 100 days before the election day. For the election to take place on the above-mentioned date they must do this before 21 December 2018."

However, if no meeting of the Ukrainian Parliament can happen 100 days before the election, before 21 December, 2018, the election cannot be approved of, or held.

Poroshenko is in really bad shape in the national polls, and this is why this "encounter" was engineered; the placement of Martial Law ahead of an election which might possibly be his last.

Kolomoisky rules out Poroshenko's 2019 election win.

BEX ALERT - Reggie Bush pushes disinformation about vaccines in Twitter 'conversation'

Now enjoying retirement following an 11-year NFL career, Reggie Bush took to Twitter on Sunday with a question he wanted his 2.88 million followers to answer: Do they believe this extremely anti-vaccine video he just found?

Claiming that he had been reading and watching videos on vaccinations and their “dangers,” the 33-year-old linked to a video of a retired nurse castigating a CDC panel over their vaccine regulations and pushing the widely debunked theory that vaccines cause autism. The video has since been deleted for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service.

EU-WIDE ‘ANTI-RUSSIAN PSY-OPS’ PROGRAM CONFIRMS UK GOVT FUNDING, ANONYMOUS DENIES LEAK

A network exposed by leaked documents as a Europe-wide PR operation aimed at curbing “Russian propaganda” has confirmed receiving money from the British government, while Anonymous has denied on Twitter that it’s behind the leak.
The Integrity Initiative (II) is a network claiming to fight disinformation that threatens democracy. A trove of alleged II documents, which purports to show costs and internal guidelines as well as names of individuals cooperating with it, has been published by people claiming to be part of the Anonymous collective. A major Anonymous-linked Twitter account has denied it was linked to the leak.

Responding to the leak on Monday, the organization said it did indeed receive funding from the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) for the past two years, but insisted that private donors were its primary source of money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised by this revelation.

But the one thing I can tell you, watching the unfolding of these horrific, US generated wars. (allegedly on Terror, but actually against the people who have the nerve to live over those resources the US and EU very much want to "liberate") ,is that kind of demonization, coupled with sanctions against said countries, means war is coming.

That incident yesterday, regarding Ukraine patrol boats, seized by the Russians, out of international waters, is a case in point, followed by the histrionics delivered by Nikki Haley at the UN's emergency session today, today, are a very good example of this kind of demonization.

And the other thing most presstitutes did NOT choose to cover, was extensive shelling, by the Ukrainian military, in Donbass yesterday.

MBS HIRES GERMAN PR FIRM TO POLISH HIS IMAGE

A German consultancy firm with access to senior officials in the country has been employed by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman to improve the kingdom’s image. For years, the Saudi leadership has spent large sums on lobbyists in the West and this weekend a German newspaper revealed that that the Crown Prince, known as MBS, is working with a Berlin based consulting firm to shape Germany’s impression of the 33-year-old.

Details of the agreement between MBS and the PR firm were discovered by German sources and reported in the Arab media. German Sunday newspaper, Welt am Sonntag reported that Saudi Crown Prince “has been working with WMP since 2015 to prevent the spread of negative views in Germany about the royal family.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Butcher of Yemen, aka Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, ;I can help you out here, and not charge you a dime!

TOXIC CHEMICAL SPILL IN SOUTHERN CHINA 10 TIMES WORSE THAN PREVIOUSLY DISCLOSED

A toxic chemical leak in southern China which put 52 people in hospital and has cost affected fishing villages millions of dollars in lost revenue was 10 times worse than previously reported.

Quanzhou city authorities on Sunday confirmed that 69 tonnes of the petrochemical C9 – a by-product of the oil refining process – had spilled into the local seawater, far in excess of the originally claimed seven tonnes.

Two officials have been sacked for negligence, in addition to the arrests of seven people for their roles in the incident.

Fishermen in Xiaocuo, the coastal village where the leak occurred, have consistently questioned the official version of events which began on November 4 when a tube carrying the toxic liquid from a local petrochemical plant to a tanker came loose.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will be left to fester for years, along with the problems with other petrochemical plants, and lead to many health problems in the areas where these plants have been placed.

 MEXICO TO BEEF UP BORDER SECURITY AFTER MIGRANTS "VIOLENTLY" ATTEMPT TO ENTER US

Mexico has pledged to enhance its security near the US border after 39 migrants were arrested out of hundreds of Central Americans who "violently" tried to enter the US following a peaceful protest to appeal for faster processing of asylum requests. US agents fired tier gas into the Tijuana river aqueduct to try and stop some of the migrants making the push.

Washington’s Erroneous Notion That the Persian Gulf Is an American Lake

For crying out loud, even the barbaric thugs of ISIS milked every possible drop of petroleum from the tiny, wheezing oilfields scattered around their backwater domain before they were finally driven out. So there is no economic case whatsoever for Imperial Washington’s massive military presence in the middle east.

The truth is, there is no such thing as an OPEC cartel – virtually every member produces all they can and cheats whenever possible. The only thing that resembles production control in the global oil market is the fact that the Saudi princes treat their oil reserves not much differently than Exxon.

That is, they attempt to maximize the present value of their 270 billion barrels of reserves. Yet ultimately they are no more clairvoyant at calibrating the best oil price to accomplish that objective at any given time than are the economists employed by Exxon, the DOE or the International Energy Agency.

Trump: US In Very Strong Negotiations in Afghanistan

n rare comments on peace talks in Afghanistan, President Trump reported that “very strong” negotiations are ongoing in the country. He said the people of Afghanistan “are tired of fighting,” and the goal is to end the war.

That said, Trump appeared to try to downplay the effort, saying that the negotiations “probably” are not going to be successful, but “who knows?” He did not elaborate further. Special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad has expressed hopes for a peace deal by April of next year, though the Taliban said no agreements are yet in place.

Less important than what President Trump said was that he addressed the matter at all. The Afghan War has tended not to be a popular topic for him to address. This may suggest a growing interest within the administration to tackle the protracted war.

Vladimir Putin hits out at 'WEAK and politically incompetent' US in scathing attack

VLADIMIR Putin hit out at the government of the United States, arguing that their decision-making is "weak" and "politically incompetent", a documentary has revealed.

Russian president Vladimir Putin spoke about his role in brokering agreements during the Syria crisis, in contrast to Western “incompetence". Appearing on "World Order 2018", he spoke about meeting with representatives from Iran and Turkey. In July 2018, the three countries met for two days of talks on issues related to the war in Syria.

Migrant Caravan Planning ‘Human Stampede’ Into America; One Group 500 Feet From U.S. Border

Members of a migrant caravan that marched from Central America through Mexico are reportedly talking about crossing the U.S. border in what amounts to a "human stampede" in order to draw reaction from the Trump administration

“They have that intention,” Sergio Tamai, a founder of Angels without Borders, a group that is aiding the migrants, told Telemundo 20 in San Diego, Fox News reported. “I believe that thousands could make that jump.”

Some 6,000 migrants have gathered in Tijuana, Mexico, across from San Diego, Calif., in the last couple of weeks. The Trump administration says as many as 10,000 could arrive in the next weeks or months. Most are sleeping in the streets or camped out in makeshift tents.

“Most of us, yes, we want to be on the other side,” Jorge Molina, a Honduran migrant, told Telemundo. “Some want to jump over the wall, others to go another way, and others want to wait and see what kind of response they get.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My hope is that if these people are physically repelled, that no one gets hurt; the optics for even one person (or, God forbid, a child getting hurt) would be horrific for the White House right now.

Ten Reasons Why Governments Fail

TAGS Calculation and Knowledge Political Theory

11/22/ 2018 Antony P. Mueller
When politicians and bureaucrats fail to deliver what they promise — which happens a lot — we're often told that the problem can be solved if only we get the right people to run the government instead. We're told that the old crop of government agents were trying hard enough. Or that they didn't have the right intentions. While it's true that there are plenty of incompetent and ill-intentioned people in government, we can't always blame the people involved. Often, the likelihood of failure is simply built in to the institution of government itself. In other words, politicians and bureaucrats don't succeed because they can't succeed. The very nature of government administration is weighted against success.

Here are ten reasons why:

Paul Craig Roberts On Assange: "Justice Has Disappeared In The West"

Justice has disappeared in the West. In Justice’s place stands Revenge. This fact is conclusively illustrated by Julian Assange’s ongoing eight year ordeal.

For eight years Julian Assange’s life has been lived in a Kafka Police State. He has been incarcerated first under British house arrest and then in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London, despite the absence of any charges filed against him.

Meanwhile, the entirety of the Western world, with the exception of former Educadoran President Rafael Correa and a UN agency that examined the case and ruled Assange was being illegally detained by the UK government’s refusal to honor his grant of political asylum, has turned its back to the injustice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When criminalizing of the truth becomes standard operating procedure for any government, that government is right on the keening edge of turning fascist., and corrupt beyond any possible redemption.

Where Were The Brexit 'No-Deal' Warnings During The Scottish Independence Debate?

Authored by Bernard Connolly via The Spectator,

Four years ago, 45 per cent of Scottish voters favoured leaving the UK. Many of the warnings about the negative impact of independence on the Scottish economy were justified. But they did not extinguish a yearning for independence – and the same could be said of the EU referendum, with the caveat that this time a majority voted to leave, and many of the warnings were unjustified.

An ineradicable desire to get our country back triumphed over the Project Fear campaign conducted by the Treasury and the whole of the nomenklatura that sought to preserve position, power and privilege for itself and to suppress any notion that ordinary people, in Britain or

In part, that triumph came because of the risible – and dubiously motivated – nature of the economic argument for staying in as presented by assorted anti-Brexit ‘experts’; the ‘experts’ who habitually get the big questions wrong.

El Erian: Brexit & The Global Economy

The singular issue of Brexit has consumed the United Kingdom for two and a half years. The “if,” “how,” and “when” of the country’s withdrawal from the European Union, after decades of membership, has understandably dominated news coverage, and sidelined almost every other policy debate. Lost in the mix, for example, has been any serious discussion of how the UK should boost productivity and competitiveness at a time of global economic and financial fluidity.

At the same time, the rest of the world’s interest in Brexit has understandably waned. The UK’s negotiations with the EU have dragged on through multiple déjà vu moments, and the consensus is that the economic fallout will be felt far more acutely in Britain than in the EU, let alone in countries elsewhere.

MI6 Scrambling To Stop Trump From Releasing Classified Docs In Russia Probe

The UK's Secret Intelligence Service, otherwise known as MI6, has been scrambling to prevent President Trump from publishing classified materials linked to the Russian election meddling investigation, according to The Telegraph, stating that any disclosure would "undermine intelligence gathering if he releases pages of an FBI application to wiretap one of his former campaign advisers."

Trump's allies, however, are fighting back - demanding transparency and suggesting that the UK wouldn't want the documents withheld unless it had something to hide.

The Telegraph has talked to more than a dozen UK and US officials, including in American intelligence, who have revealed details about the row.

British spy chiefs have “genuine concern” about sources being exposed if classified parts of the wiretap request were made public, according to figures familiar with discussions.

Latin America Has Fewer Guns, But More Crime

Although we hear relentlessly in this country that more guns lead to more crime, the experience of Latin America certainly doesn’t lend much credence to the idea. Advocates for gun control try to ignore Latin America and focus strictly on Europe, where they claim that low crime rates are synonymous with low levels of gun ownership. (Even this claim must exclude Russia, Switzerland, Ukraine, and the Baltics to be true.) By expanding our analysis to the Americas, however, we quickly find these claims are anything but self-evident.

So just what was so offensive about the 43-second video that earned Natural News a ban? A woman talks about how she went from being told she had just six weeks to live because of stomach cancer to complete remission thanks to cannabis oil, and she shared her belief that it should be legalized for medicinal purposes. It’s about saving lives, not destroying them, but YouTube doesn’t care if their excuses don’t make sense; they just want to take down videos they don’t agree with.

Syria, A Frozen Conflict: The Final Push for Idlib Will Come Soon

The current truce is a strategic pause that has all the appearance of what has happened in the past in the provinces of Homs and Aleppo. The need to free Idlib from terrorists goes hand in hand with the promise of Assad and the government of Damascus to liberate every inch of Syria from terrorists. The diplomatic efforts of Moscow serve to prepare the ground for what will happen in the coming months, with the SAA set to advance on Idlib. In this sense, the deployment of advanced systems in Syria serves as a deterrent against possible responses from countries like Israel and the United States, anxious to defend their jihadists, but continuing to have minimal influence on the ground.

U.S. ambassador: Iran failed to declare all chemical weapons to global agency

Iran has not declared all its chemical weapons capabilities to the global chemical weapons agency in The Hague, in violation of an international non-proliferation convention, the U.S. ambassador to the organisation said on Thursday.

Ambassador Kenneth Ward told a meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that Iran had failed to report a production facility for the filling of aerial bombs and maintains a programme to obtain banned toxic munitions.

There was no immediate Iranian reaction to the remarks.

Israel's Iron Dome defense of Saudi Arabia aims to avert collapse of Trump and Netanyahu's entire Middle East strategy: But Democrats view it as yet another expression of the prime minister’s overzealous backing for a despised U.S. president

Trump had no hesitation about deploying whatever remains of Israel’s good name as a political Iron Dome. On Thursday night he asserted, “Israel would be in a lot of trouble without Saudi Arabia.” In his written statement, Trump mentioned Israel twice: First to underline Saudi Arabia’s importance in warding off the big Satan Iran and then to justify Washington’s intention of standing by Riyadh in order to “ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region.”

Israel, Trump assumes, is the magic word that will ensure the support of Evangelicals, who will in turn mitigate the harsh positions taken by some Republican Senators, especially Lindsey Graham, against the Saudi crown prince.

Democrats, in any case, were apparently less impressed. Widely respected Washington Post columnist Jackson Diehl wrote that “a lot of Republicans as well as Democrats will be repelled… by the spectacle of an Israeli leader lobbying to excuse an Arab dictator for murder.”

Julian Assange deserves a Medal of Freedom, not a secret indictment

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been secretly indicted by the Trump administration’s Justice Department, “a drastic escalation” of the feds’ efforts against him, the New York Times reported. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has denounced Wikileaks as a “non-state hostile intelligence service” and labeled Assange a “fraud,” “coward,” and “enemy.” But rather than a federal indictment, Assange deserves a tweaked version of one of Washington’s hottest honorifics.

Wikileaks has been in the federal crosshairs since it released scores of thousands of documents exposing lies and atrocities regarding the Afghan and Iraq wars, thanks to leaks from Army corporal Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Wikileaks released emails from the Democratic National Committee showing that its nominating process was rigged to favor Hillary Clinton. During the final month of the campaign, Wikileaks disclosed emails from Clinton campaign chief John Podesta.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely disgusts me; President Trump should have a pre-written Notice of Commutation for any sentence our alleged "justice" can throw at Assange.

Were I a betting person, I might well bet that he may not get to his arraignment, but be assassinated before he can testify "as a message to anyone who discloses any real embarrassment to the US government."

This is why it is so critically important for the independent media, to be following this story.

ESCOBAR: ERDOGAN, MBS, ISLAMIC LEADERSHIP, & THE PRICE OF SILENCE

The House of Saud's ties to the Khashoggi slaying are being milked by the Turkish President for maximum benefit amid debate on leadership of the Islamic world and how the crisis may affect US and Saudi strategy in the Middle East...

Call it the Gazprom double down. Nord Stream 1 and 2 supply northern Europe while TurkStream supplies southern Europe. Pipelines are steel umbilical cords. They represent liquid connectivity at its best while conclusively decreasing risks of geopolitical friction.

The Kremlin and the Russian Foreign Ministry are very much aware that the high-stakes game goes way beyond ‘Pulp Fiction’ in Istanbul and the Astana peace process on Syria – carefully micro-managed by both Putin and Erdogan alongside Iran’s Rouhani. The big prize is no less than the leadership of the Islamic world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin, as usual, is no less than one thousand chess moves ahead of President Trump, in understanding how all this is going to be perceived globally, and how it can best benefit Russia and its allies.

PENTAGON’S ‘LOST’ TRILLIONS WENT TO PEOPLE CONNECTED TO US MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: RON PAUL

Former Republican congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has said that “the Pentagon’s lost trillions have nothing to do with defense, adding that the “money propping up the high lifestyles of those connected to the military-industrial complex.”

Dr. Paul, a three-time American presidential candidate and the founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, made the remarks in an article published by his website on Monday.

Deputy US Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan has recently acknowledged that the Pentagon has failed its first-ever comprehensive audit, saying, “We failed the audit, but we never expected to pass it.”

n his article, Dr. Paul wrote that “the results are as many of us expected. After spending nearly a billion dollars to find out what has happened to trillions in unaccounted-for spending, the long look through the books has concluded that only ten percent of all Pentagon agencies pass muster.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Amen to that, Dr. Paul!!

This is one of the few former politicians for whom I have any respect, who understands just how fractured our monetary and military stances have become, and what peril we are all in because of lousy decisions made at the very top of the governmental food chain.

See Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in new trailer for "Vice"

Christian Bale is known for taking extreme measures for film roles, such as losing 60 pounds for 2004's "The Machinist" and gaining it back in muscle for 2005's "Batman Begins." For his latest role in "Vice," Bale gained 40 pounds, shaved his head and bleached his eyebrows to play former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Sneaky, Real Conspiracies That Governments And Companies Got Away With

During 20 years, a single corporation decided who would rule Latin America. In 2016 it was revealed that the construction company Odebrecht financed almost all the successful presidential campaigns of Latin American presidents in exchange for contracts once they took power.

Canada invented a real "Gaydar" in the 1960s. Paranoid about federal employees sexual orientation, they "stress tested" employees by showing them same sex porn and measured subliminal bodily responses. More than 400 test subjects were fired and more than 9000 investigated based on the results.

George Soros Sold Huge Amounts Of Facebook And Netflix Just Before Tech Stocks Crashed

George Soros avoided a loss of more than 17 million dollars by dumping shares of Facebook, Netflix and Goldman Sachs just before the big crash started happening. In other words, he made out like a bandit by selling at the peak of the market. Is he smarter than all the rest of us, did he have some inside information, or was he simply lucky? In recent months, tech stocks have lost approximately a trillion dollars in value, and many investors have been absolutely devastated. But not George Soros. According to the most recent filing with the SEC, Soros Fund Management was able to dump shares in Facebook and Netflix just in time…

Merkel Urges EU to Give up Sovereignty to Brussels 'in Orderly Manner' - Reports

Earlier, Chancellor Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron pledged to continue supporting Franco-German efforts to strengthen a "sovereign Europe" amid concerns that the European Union was at a "crossroads" regarding its future role in the world.

Angela Merkel has urged European Union members to give up more of their sovereignty to EU institutions, Die Welt has reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Doing this will not benefit the people of Europe, or Germany, in any possible tangible way; it will simply give Brussels the "ammo" it needs to hold true to its dictatorial ways.

We Must Never Allow Legitimate Criticism of Israel to be Defined as Anti-Semitic

The reason the Niemoller quotation occupies my mind so much right now is my mixture of rage and powerlessness in the face of the hurtful, disgraceful and ludicrous accusations of anti-Semitism levelled against three individuals I know. Jim Sheridan, no relation, is a former Labour MP for Paisley, Renfrewshire, near to where I live and he is currently a Renfrewshire Labour councillor.

Mary used her personal Facebook account to state:

"If the purpose is to generate opposition to anti-Semitism, it has backfired spectacularly".

"If it is to get rid of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Leader, it is unlikely to succeed, and is a shameless piece of cynical opportunism".

"And if it is a Mossad [the Israeli secret service] assisted the campaign to prevent the election of a Labour Government pledged to recognise Palestine as a State, it is unacceptable interference in the democracy of Britain."

Not only is that statement not anti-Semitic it is also politically astute and very mature.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This earnest desire to conflate any criticism of the Israeli government with anti-Semitism, must not be allowed to fester.

Again, this is why the BDS campaign is so critical right now.

Registering Israel’s “Useful Idiots: ”FDD and AIPAC need adult supervision

But there is a more serious consideration in terms of the actual relationships that many of the groups enjoy with the Israeli government. To be sure, many of them boast on their promotional literature and websites about their relationships with the Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet, so the issue of dual loyalty or, worse, acting as actual Israeli government agents must be considered.

There is a legal remedy to hostile foreigners acting against American interests and that is the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 (FARA). Originally intended to identify and monitor agents of Nazi Germany propagandizing in the United States, it has since been applied to individuals and groups linked to other nations. Most recently, it was used against Russian news agencies RT America and Sputnik, which were forced to register. It is also being considered for Qatar based al-Jazeera.

Unfortunately, this will only happen... when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.

Yemen Genocide About Oil Control

As with virtually every war and destabilization since the British first discovered abundant oil in the Persian Gulf over a century ago, the Yemen war is about oil, more precisely about control of oil, lots of oil.

Yemen is a strategically key geopolitical stretch of land at the critical connecting point of the Red Sea which links to the Mediterranean via the Suez Canal and the Indian Ocean. It’s the site of one of the world’s most strategic shipping choke points, the Bab el Mandab, a narrow passage a mere 18 miles distance from Djibouti in the Horn of Africa, making it one of the US Department of Energy’s Oil Transit Chokepoints. According to the US Department of Energy an estimated 4.7 million barrels of oil passes through Bab el Mandab in both directions daily, including oil bound for China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Karl Marx observed that all wars are essentially economic in nature, he was entirely correct.

Why Mass Shooters Go To Gun Free Zones

Look, I’m not going to say that armed citizens will universally stop bad guys and survive. In fact, there’s a good chance that some armed citizens reacting to mass shootings may be shot themselves. But speaking for myself, if I can buy my family and others a little bit more time to escape to safety, I’m OK with that trade. If I can put the rabid animal down in the process and save more lives, so much the better. -- What we do know is that armed resistance works. It stops attacks and saves lives. -- But when will the mainstream media report that?

USA Prepares to Add Venezuela to Its Terrorism List – Its Got a Lot of Oil You Know

Another stunning statistic that should surprise absolutely no-one with an internet connection, is that Venezuela also happens to be the largest supplier of oil to the United States, sending about 1.5 million barrels per day.

Not paying for that would be good for America’s economy, as would stemming their supply to America’s competitors.

During a press conference with Calixto Ortega, the president of the Central Bank of Venezuela on Tuesday, Economy Vice President Tareck El Aissami said in early October that all future transactions on the exchange market would be made in euro, yuan and “other convertible currency” instead of the US dollar.

The Only Regime Change that Is Needed Is in Washington

Actually, the only regime change that is needed is in Washington and it would include Jeffrey, Bolton, Haley, Pompeo, and Miller. And while we’re at it, get rid of son-in-law Jared Kushner and his claque of Orthodox Jews, Jason Greenblatt the “peace negotiator” and David Friedman the U.S. Ambassador in Israel. None of them are capable of acting to advance any American national interest, which they wouldn’t recognize even if it hit them in the butt. Once they are gone the U.S. can bid the Middle East goodbye and leave its constituent nations to sort out their own problems. Jeffrey’s ridiculous prescriptions for the Syrians and Russians are symptomatic of what one gets from a team of yes-men who have latched onto some dystopic ideas and pursued them relentlessly, blinded by what they believe to be American power. Someone should tell them that their antics have made that power a commodity that is dramatically depreciating in value, but it is clear that they are not listening.

Revenge Is Mine Saith Washington. Kafka Police State, Julian Assange’s ongoing Eight Year Ordeal

Assange is locked away in the Ecuadorean Embassy, because to protect him from false arrest, former Ecuadorean President Correa gave him political asylum. However, the corrupt and servile UK government that serves Washington, and not justice or law, refused to honor Assange’s asylum. The US vassal known as the UK stands ready to arrest Assange on Washington’s orders if he steps outside the embassy and to hand him over to Washington, where a large number of both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have said he should be executed. The Trump regime, carrying on the illegal practices of its forebears, has a secret indictment waiting to be revealed once they have their hands on Assange.

IRAQ REFUSES TO COMPLY WITH U.S. SANCTIONS ON IRAN?

The Iraqi government is refusing to comply with a second round of United States economic sanctions targeting Iran's crucial energy, shipping and banking sectors. “The decision isn’t international, Iraqi, or part of a United Nations resolution—it's an American one,” Iraq's Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi explained in reference to Baghdad's position to not “respect” the financial penalties. He added that Iraq "does not accept dictates" and is not obligated to fall in line with US foreign policy or any "aggression" against another country.

The announcement comes after Iraqi President Barham Salih over the weekend visited Tehran, where he discussed with his counterpart Hassan Rouhani ways to enhance bilateral ties as well as the potential establishment of free trade zones along the shared border. The trip raised eyebrows in Washington, which fears growing Iranian influence over Baghdad could offset a fifteen-year military and diplomatic effort to rebuild Iraq in its image.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on Iraq!!

And had the US government not insisted on de-baathification shortly after its occupation of Baghdad, perhaps the Iraqis would not have had to put up with such a corrupt, US-centric government in the aftermath, causing them, this year, to create a coalition centered around Muqtada Al Sadr, the Shiite scholar who right now is the most powerful person in Iraq, without a title or official role in the government.
