Op-Ed: The Line in the Sand

Most Americans did not know Qasem Soleimani until the Israelis found the perfect opportunity to have him assassinated. They gave the Pentagon the orders and kindly handed Donald Trump all the credit while he ate his ice cream and watched it on TV.

What Upstanding Citizens Believe Vs. What Crazy Conspiracy Theorists Believe

Crazy, stupid conspiracy theorists believe a mature worldview requires skepticism toward power.

Smart upstanding citizens believe the government is your friend, and the media are its helpers.

Crazy, stupid conspiracy theorists believe that powerful people sometimes make immoral plans in secret.

Smart upstanding citizens believe the TV always tells the truth and the CIA exists for no reason.

World reacts to US killing of Iran's Qassem Soleimani in Iraq

International leaders have called for restraint and de-escalation following the assassination of Iran's top general, ordered by US President Donald Trump, as Iran's allies warned the killing could lead to conflict.

Jan 04 08:56

Former Acting CIA Director Mike Morell predicted that Gen. Qassem Soleimani's death would ultimately come at a high cost, expecting Iran to retaliate and kill American civilians.

I think the Iranians will go after US Military officers and politicians. Any mass atrocity against American civilians will be a false flag perpetrated against Americans by the district of criminals.

Trump Hit on Iranian Commander Puts a Target on His Own and Top US Generals’ Backs

If Trump really is a renegade the Deepstate boys could assassinate him now and blame it on Iran. They get rid of Trump and they get their war. What a mess! God help us!

America’s top military brass need to understand that thanks to their Commander in Chief’s hit job on Suleimani, they all are now walking around with targets pinned on them. Trump himself, not a man who has ever demonstrated any kind of moral courage in his life, has to know that he has also put a big target on his own ample body.

Who Towers Behind Trump?

By Michael Collins Piper

An inquiry into the background of flamboyant American entrepreneur Donald J. Trump provides some surprising insights into Trump’s path to power and influence, for the fact is that Trump’s rise to stardom came as a direct consequence of his having functioned as hardly more than a colorful front man for some very wealthy behind-the-scenes sponsors.

Everyone knows, of course, about Trump’s gambling operations and of the wide-ranging links of the gambling industry to organized crime. But the story is much bigger than that. In his own memoir, The Art of the Deal, Trump proudly described how in 1987 he bought his first casino interests when he purchased 93% of the voting stock in the Resorts International gambling concern.

Jan 04 08:20

Why Donald Trump Is A Rothschild Puppet

In 1992, Donald Trump was recruited by the Rothschild family in order to further their globalist agenda in exchange for vast sums of cash.

Trump is widely portrayed as a white knight by the alternative media, who hope he will end the New World Order’s dominance over humanity and set us free.

However, compelling evidence suggests Trump is nothing more than a Trojan horse Crown Agent, loyal to the City of London banksters.

Jan 04 08:17

It seems that the Rothschilds have been supporting Donald Trump for over 30 years

“In 1987 Donald Trump purchased his first casino interests when he acquired 93% of the shares in Resorts International. Resorts International has a sordid history which began in the early 1950’s when it evolved from a CIA and Mossad front company which had been established for the purpose of money laundering the profits from drug trafficking, gambling, and other illegal activities. On October 30, 1978, The Spotlight newspaper reported that the principle investors of Resorts International were Meyer Lansky, Tibor Rosenbaum, William Mellon Hitchcock, David Rockefeller, and one Baron Edmond de Rothschild.”

Who Are the Real Terrorists in the Middle East?

Back when I still wore the uniform of a U.S. Army officer, and well before many of my former brothers in arms labeled me a traitor, I taught freshman (“plebe”) history at West Point. I loved asking my cadets provocative questions, the sort of queries they never heard in high school Advanced Placement U.S. history courses. Consider just one. At the end of the class on World War II, I always asked: “What is the moral difference between flying three planes into the Twin Towers and Pentagon—killing 3,000 civilians—and using hundreds of U.S. planes to firebomb Tokyo on March 9, 1945—killing some 90,000 civilians?”

Declassified U.S. Government Documents Claim The West Supported The Creation of ISIS

The Facts:

Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as a result of an inquiry made by Judicial Watch show the close connection between the U.S. government and terrorist organizations like ISIS.
Reflect On:

How is this idea still toted as a "conspiracy theory" within the mainstream? Why is the mountain of evidence and witness testimony on this issue never acknowledged? Why do we believe our troops are fighting for our freedom? Is this just propaganda?

On Thursday the United States killed General Qassim Soleimani, a top commander of Iran’s al-Quds Force, in an airstrike at Baghdad’s International Airport. The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces. Seven people were reportedly killed in the airstrike.

Jan 04 08:10

America Created Al-Qaeda and the ISIS Terror Group

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.

The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, “by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the U.S. would be in violation.”

5 Times the US Actively Supported ISIS or Similar Groups

Washington D.C. (GPA) – Everyone knows U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East has more to do with destabilization than diplomacy. Whether arming terror states like Israel and Saudi Arabia or flattening entire countries like Libya and Iraq, American intervention is pretty much always a humanitarian disaster. At times, this policy has even included arming ISIS — the very terror group Washington claims to oppose.

The reason for this help is that ISIS assists U.S. foreign policy goals. It is no secret that the U.S. has tried to overthrow the democratically elected Syrian government for years. To further their goals, the U.S. regime has more or less aligned with just about every terrorist group short of ISIS publicly, including Jahbat al-Nusra.

How Rothschild Inc. Saved Donald Trump

Cognitive dissonance is a psychological methodology where a situation involving conflicting attitudes, beliefs, or behaviors, are manufactured. The internal diametric which develops causes extreme mental and emotional discomfort, which further leads to one of the opposing positions being adjusted for the purpose of restoring cognitive balance.

Cognitive dissonance can exist as a natural process of mental and emotional evolution but is widely used in our culture as a means of socioeconomic engineering and transforming of mass populations. Every time you hear the mainstream media suggest Trump is “flip-flopping” on policies or issues, the concept of intentional cognitive dissonance should come to mind.

The one article you need to explain, document, prove ongoing US lies for more illegal War of Aggression on resource-rich Iran: ‘We the People’ must choose EITHER .01% War Criminal arrests OR ongoing .01% War Crimes killing millions, harming billions

Alternative media has documented for decades the Orwellian-lies from .01% US “leaders” for war on Iran in order to maximize profit from petrodollars and resources (natural and human labor). To amend what I last wrote 7 months ago:

Since 2005 I’ve documented easily-proved US “leadership” and corporate media lies for illegal War of Aggression on Iran, including:
1) A ~40-page White Paper with ~200 footnotes circulated among interested Members of Congress.

2) Two 1-page briefs for Robert David Steele’s briefing for President Trump (apparently all rejected by Trump) how 9/11 was/is Orwellian-unlawful “reason” for global petrodollar and resource wars.

3) Focus on the two central lies for war on Iran: that Iran threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” and their “nuclear program.”

“This is very serious,” Khalek added. “The US essentially declared war on Iran by assassinating its most revered military figure in Iraq. And by also killing the head of the PMF, the US created more enemies in Iraq. There will be regional retaliation. It’s unlikely it can be prevented.”

“If true, It is not an understatement to say this could change the entire Middle East,” tweeted Rising‘s Saagar Enjeti.

Jan 04 07:38

Why Iraq is Much Worse than ‘Trump’s Benghazi’

“Great nations do not fight endless wars,” Trump declared in his State of the Union address just last year. “Our brave troops have now been fighting in the Middle East for almost 19 years. In Afghanistan and Iraq, nearly 7,000 American heroes have given their lives. More than 52,000 Americans have been badly wounded. We have spent more than $7 trillion in the Middle East.”

Yet Iran has always been the unprincipled exception to Trump’s skepticism of regime change. In his zeal to reverse Obama’s legacy, he risks repeating Obama’s folly. For the 44th president also owed his election to the fact that he recognized Iraq was a “dumb war.” He left office with the U.S. mired in more wars of choice than before, including interventions in Libya, Yemen and Syria that have to varying degrees kept smoldering under Trump.

The war wasn't about slavery, feat. Stonewall Jackson

It was about the Morrill Tariff.

By Mike Scruggs-Most Americans believe the U. S. “Civil War” was over slavery. They have to an enormous degree been miseducated. The means and timing of handling the slavery question were at issue, although not in the overly simplified moral sense that lives in postwar and modern propaganda. But had there been no Morrill Tariff there might never have been a war.
Prior to the U. S. “Civil War” there was no U. S. income tax. In 1860, approximately 95% of U. S. government revenue was raised by a tariff on imported goods.

No war or regime change, Trump assures Iran after praising the killing of ‘#1 terrorist’ – ISIS-fighting general Soleimani

“We do not seek regime change,” he added, but the Iranian “regime’s aggression... must end, and must end now.”

Trump’s Point of No Return

Like it or not Trump executed the man most responsible for the systemic destruction of ISIS and neutering of Al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq. He’s also a man, over the years, who has fought the U.S. to a standstill across the Middle East.

Those were his pertinent crimes.

This is the most dangerous escalation of Trump’s administration. Nothing he’s done to this point compares with killing Solemaini and taking immediate credit for it.

But he is a wimp. And a coward. And neither man was impressed by this. He hasn’t won a single negotiation of note in three years. Killing Solemaini was the result of having no capacity for diplomacy.

The Soleimani Assassination: The Long-Awaited Beginning of The End of America’s Imperial Ambitions

The United States is now at war with Iran in a conflict that could easily have been avoided and it will not end well.

Iran cannot let the killing of a senior military officer go unanswered even though it cannot directly confront the United States militarily. But there will be reprisals and Tehran’s suspected use of proxies to stage limited strikes will now be replaced by more damaging actions that can be directly attributed to the Iranian government.

No American diplomat, soldier or even tourists in the region should consider him or herself to be safe, quite the contrary. It will be an “open season” on Americans. The U.S. has already ordered a partial evacuation of the Baghdad Embassy and has advised all American citizens to leave the country immediately.

Trump bears full responsibility for what comes next.

Donald Trump rode to victory in 2016 on a promise to end the useless wars in the Middle East, but he has now demonstrated very clearly that he is a liar.

Trump's New Year killing of Soleimani finally blows up the fake Russiagate narrative

US President Donald Trump accused late Iranian IRGC Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani of being responsible for "millions" of deaths, thus justifying the American airstrike which killed him early in the morning on 3 January.

Trump also claimed that because of this, Soleimani was "hated and feared" in his homeland and that they actually rejoiced at the news of his demise. The president argued that the man's assassination was long overdue.
