LOOK WHO TRUMP IS DEPORTING

Somalia’s U.S. ambassador says his embassy has learned that U.S. immigration agents are planning to deport about 4,000 Somali nationals now living in the United States.

“We learned through immigration sources that the total number of the Somalis that are in the books of [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] to be removed are close to 4,000,” Ahmed Isse Awad told VOA’s Somali service Saturday. “Most of them are not in detention centers.”

Scott Adams: Trusting Your Government in a Time of War

President Trump’s critics and supporters agree on one thing: Our new president has a history of “stretching” the truth whenever there is some advantage in doing so, and sometimes even when there is not. You might say he is famous for playing loose with the facts. We all expect a high degree of “hyperbole” from President Trump, to put it kindly. He gets away with it because barely-enough Americans believe his intentions are in line with America’s best interests.

The odd exception to our universal understanding of President Trump’s mode of operation is his claim that he is totally certain Assad was responsible for the chemical attack on his own people last week. The President’s critics and most of his supporters believe President Trump when he suggests that our military can track any plane in Syria and know what that plane did to whom.

Do you believe that?

South Korean Paper Reports China Has Deployed 150,000 Troops To North Korea Border

While the catalyst is unclear, it appears the market dropped as headlines of further sanctions against Russia appeared and reports of China deploiying 150,000 troops to its North Korea border.

According to Korean news agency Chosun, the "Chinese army has deployed about 150,000 troops to the North Korean border in two groups to prepare for unforeseen circumstances." The reason: the prospect of "military options", such as preemptive attacks on North Korea, like the one the United States launched on Syria.

More Google translated:

As the United States announced its independent North Korean behavior and moved the United States Navy's nuclear-powered Calvinus (CVN-70) carrier class to Singapore, the Chinese army has deployed about 150,000 troops in two groups to prepare for unforeseen circumstances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports from the Korean agency Chosun, are true, the "message" he gave Chinese President Xi Jinping, by coordinating the strike against Syria right at the very moment President Jinping was his guest at Mar A Lago, was utterly the wrong one.

I don't know what the Vegas odds are for a US-driven war with China over North Korea right now, but I would say, they are probably no looking to shabby right now.

Trump, Saudi Arabia and the War on Yemen

On April 2nd, The Yemen News Agency (SABA) reported that US-Saudi war planes struck several targets including private and public properties across several provinces in Yemen:

The US-Saudi aggression war planes continued heinous strikes against citizens, causing heavy damage to private and public properties in several provinces over the past hours, a military official told Saba on Sunday. The warplanes waged 12 strikes on Haradh district of Hajja province and three other strikes on Serwah district of Mareb province, as well waged six raids on Kamaran island in Hodeida province

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the heck has Iran done, in light of the reality it has not started a war in over 200 years?!?

Iran is not the threat in the Middle East; Israel and Saudi Arabia are the threats to the region, period, end of discussion.

That the US government is still complicit in Saudi war crimes in Yemen, after the "regime change" which brought us President Trump, confounds and disappoints me more than I can articulate.

The Saudis are slaughtering civilians; starving children to death through malnutrition, because of the blockade of Yemeni ports; and using depleted uranium weapons on the Yemeni population, which is leading to massive spikes in cancers, still births, and horrific deformities in newborn children.

But apparently, in the mind of President Trump, some war crimes (like the chemical attack in Syria) are more equal than others, like those I have mentioned above.

The West and Its Allies Seek to Install the “Black Flag of Terrorism” Over Syria

The recent false flag terror attack in Idlib Syria recalls an earlier massacre by NATO forces on September 17, 2016 when Coalition warplanes attacked Syria Arab Army positions at al-Tharda Mountain in the region of Deir ez-Zor.

Each attack was for the benefit of ISIS terrorists. The direct attack on SAA soldiers at al-Tharda Mountain allowed ISIS terrorists to quickly occupy the strategic location, and the recent false flag attack provided a fake pretext for the U.S to launch a (poorly planned and executed) attack on the Shayrat air base — a facility used by the SAA to attack ISIS positions.

In fact, the entire terrorist infrastructure is strengthened with each and every initiative taken by the West and its extremist allies against the legitimate, elected, secular, socially-oriented, Syrian government.

Illegal sanctions, described recently by U.S Congressman Dennis Kucinich at the EuroCSE conference, as “war by other means”, also serve to advance terrorist capabilities.

Russia-Baiting Pushed Trump to Attack Syria — and Increases the Risks of Nuclear Annihilation

Vast efforts to portray Donald Trump as Vladimir Putin’s flunky have given Trump huge incentives to prove otherwise. Last Thursday, he began the process in a big way by ordering a missile attack on Russia’s close ally Syria. In the aftermath of the attack, the cheerleading from U.S. mass media was close to unanimous, and the assault won lots of praise on Capitol Hill. Finally, the protracted and fervent depictions of Trump as a Kremlin tool were getting some tangible results.

At this point, the anti-Russia bandwagon has gained so much momentum that a national frenzy is boosting the odds of unfathomable catastrophe. The world’s two nuclear superpowers are in confrontation mode.

It’s urgent to tell ourselves and each other: Wake up!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russian President Putin and Prime Minister Medvedev, a word please.

Gentlemen, I would like to assure you that no thinking American I know wishes to go to war with your country.

In my case, I am a Christian Activist Pacifist/Witness, consistently exhorting my government to achieve its geopolitical goals through hard-won, moral diplomacy, rather than war.

I am utterly appalled at what the US President ordered to be done in Syria last week, and pray for all those killed and injured, as well as those who were killed and injured in the St. Petersburg blast.

Although President Trump is the country's president, and we allegedly have a Congress which is supposed to represent the will of the American people, all I see, from the presstitutes to the fawning members of Congress who saw the strike as "Presidential" to "the utterly right thing to do", is that my will, which can best be articulated as the concept of peace through trade, was not represented at all.

One of the most crucial personality traits of an excellent leader is that of restraint; and whether President Trump is getting manipulated intel data, or whether he is getting blackmailed in some way, the man demonstrated, last Thursday, that he has no restraint whatsoever.

I am watching the "crawl" from "Faux News", and they are claiming that a CBS poll claims that most Americans polled approved of these airstrikes.

I would strongly suspect that the poll was either "push polling", i.e., polling a specific demographic (Brooklyn, maybe?!?), where the pollsters can be certain of a a specific outcome, or that they were polling the criminally insane.

Make America Neocon Again

By Gilad Atzmon

It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Assad possessed a WMD stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to a release of lethal agents into the air would be the last thing it would do. If America was determined to ‘neutralise’ Assad’s alleged ‘WMD ability’ it would deploy special forces or diplomacy. No one defuses WMD with explosives, bombs or cruise missiles. It is simply unheard of.

America targeted al-Shayrat because it knew with certainty that there were no WMD in that location. It was a firework show. It had no military objective.

Wag The Dog — How Al Qaeda Played Donald Trump And The American Media

Normally, such major policy change could only be explained by a new reality driven by verifiable facts. The alleged chemical weapons attack against Khan Sheikhoun was not a new reality; chemical attacks had been occurring inside Syria on a regular basis, despite the international effort to disarm Syria’s chemical weapons capability undertaken in 2013 that played a central role in forestalling American military action at that time. International investigations of these attacks produced mixed results, with some being attributed to the Syrian government (something the Syrian government vehemently denies), and the majority being attributed to anti-regime fighters, in particular those affiliated with Al Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda affiliate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: President Trump went off absolutely half-cocked, with this bombing run on a Syrian military base, because he had no definitive evidence as to who actually perpetrated this chemical poisoning in Syria.

And now, his national security advisor, Mc Masters is attempting to sell him on a pre-emptive full-on invasion of Syria, which will most likely mean war with Russia.

This is about as insane as any foreign policy suggestion as any I have heard over the years, and ultimately, cui bono?!? Who benefits?!?

If the US and Russia blow each other to bloody bits, it will be Israel who will be the benefactor of such mutual destruction, because it will leave Israel in control of all the Middle East's oil.

So, as is the mantra at WRH, don't panic; please plan.

FLASHBACK - Top Journalist Says Hillary Approved Sending Sarin to Rebels Used to Frame Assad, Start Syrian War

World renowned journalist Seymour Hersh has revealed, in a series of interviews and books, that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria.

As Eric Zuesse explained in Strategic Culture, Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad.

Trump's National Security Advisor Planning 'Full-Scale War' in Syria

According to independent journalist Mike Cernovich, National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster is trying to get Trump to sign off on a plan that would put 150,000 US troops on the ground in Syria.

According to Cernovich:

Current National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond “H. R.” McMaster is manipulating intelligence reports given to President Donald Trump, Cernovich Media can now report. McMaster is plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria to President Trump with the help of disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus, who mishandled classified information by sharing documents with his mistress.

As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intelligence reports from all other agencies. President Trump is being given an inaccurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve the U.S. in a full scale war in Syria.

The McMaster-Petraeus plan calls for 150,000 American ground troops in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this gentleman become foaming-at-the- mouth, barking dog mad, to make such a suggestion?!?

I think the big thing McMaster needs to explain to the American people, who, most likely will see their sons and daughters drafted, slaughtered, and maimed for life, as the result of such an invasion is, how he expects Putin's government to respond to such an invasion of Syria?!?

I am not a betting woman, but were I, I would not bet that Putin and the Russian Duma will, thank you very much, sit quietly, humming "Kumbya", and do nothing, should such a US invasion happen.

3/31/17 Arnaldo Claudio on National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster’s human rights violations of Iraqis in 2005

Podcast:

Arnaldo Claudio, a retired senior US Military Police officer, discusses his 2005 investigation of human rights abuses of detainees in Tal Afar, in a camp commanded by then-Colonel H.R. McMaster, whom Claudio threatened to arrest. According to Claudio, detainees were kept in overcrowded conditions, handcuffed, deprived of food and water, and soiled by their own urine and feces. A so-called “good behavior program” was implemented by McMaster, that held detainees indefinitely (beyond a rule requiring release after 2 weeks) unless they provided “actionable intelligence.”

US Vows to Keep Pressure on Syria as Hawks Urge More Attacks

Following Thursday’s missile attacks against Syria, the Trump Administration has vowed to keep the pressure up against the Syrian government, though exactly what that means means uncertain, with officials sending mixed signals on whether they’re going to militarily impose regime change on Syria or not.

In the meantime, they can expect to hear non-stop heckling from various hawks, demanding more attacks and more aggression as a matter of course, and insisting anything short of that would be taken as a sign of weakness by the international community.

And where there is hawkish sentiment to be expressed, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) won’t be far behind. Graham today insisted that by continuing to carry out airstrikes from the base the United States attacked, Syria was telling President Trump “F you.” He went on to demand 5,000 to 6,000 US ground troops be sent to Syria, both to wipe out ISIS and then to impose regime change therein.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here, please.

Is there even a plan here, post-bombing, and punishing the wrong people for what they did hot do?!?

Because if there is not a plan, there really needs to be an adult in the room, in the bowels of power in DC, who understands all the ramifications of the bombing, and where, reasonably, the US can (and morally, should) go from here.

The US military has just bombed the assets of a sovereign nation, against which it has not declared war, and this has been done through executive order only, when Congress is Constitutionally given the power to declare war.

And Senator Graham, where are these 5,000 to 7,000 troops you are insisting Trump send to Syria, going to come from, please?!?

The US military is already overstretched to the max, in terms of troop strength, so President Trump would have to pull them from somewhere else, to deploy them inside Syria.

Senator Graham knows that such a move will most probably mean war with Russia, but absolutely doesn't give a damn about the price in blood and money which will have to be spent to get such a war going.

One has to wonder just how much of Senator Graham's portfolio is invested in the military/industrial complex.

Senator Lindsey Graham's net worth is $3 million dollars

Such a war would almost immediately necessitate the reintroduction of a military draft.

FLASHBACK: Big names back Trump tower:Soros, Deutsche Bank said to be in on 90-story building

October 28, 2004|By Thomas A. Corfman, Tribune staff reporter.

Donald Trump has lined up three New York hedge funds, including money from billionaire George Soros, to invest $160 million in his Chicago skyscraper, a key piece in perhaps the largest construction financing in the city's history, according to real estate sources and public documents.

Apr 10 11:27

Is there a Donald Trump-George Soros Connection!!!

But were you also aware that George and Donald have been partners more than once? These partnerships show the George Soros we are familiar with, illegal activities paid with the almighty dollar, but we also find that Donald played the game exactly the same, and it cost him financially.

It all started with a simple loan between billionaires, but one is known as an avid socialist who is out to destroy the American way of life, while the other, well the other is following in the socialistic perspective, and has partnered with George Soros when he was in need of money. In 2004, George Soros made a $160 million loan to Donald Trump to build Trump Tower in Chicago. The $160 million Soros investment came in the form of a so-called “mezzanine loan.” (A mezzanine loan is like a second mortgage that charges a higher interest rate than the initial construction loan.)

Tulsi Gabbard under fire after refusing to accept 'Assad did chemical attack' without evidence

Democratic congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has provoked a backlash from senior Democrats after refusing to take Syrian President Bashar Assad's complicity in the Idlib chemical attack at face value and demanding proof.

Speaking live on CNN in the aftermath of the US missile strike against the Syrian airfield near Homs, Gabbard said she remained "skeptical" of the allegations, and reminded the host of the destructive invasions in Libya and Iraq, the latter based on a false intelligence pretext. The Democratic representative from Hawaii also called out US President Donald Trump for the "reckless" and "unconstitutional" attack.

US and North Korea ‘closer to brink’ of accidental conflict

A US Navy strike group headed by the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson steamed towards the western Pacific on Sunday for what is expected to be another American show of force off the Korean ­peninsula.

The US Pacific Command ordered the group – which includes several missile destroyers and cruisers – to sail north from Singapore on Saturday, according to the US Navy.

The orders come as observers warn of a growing risk of accidental conflict on the peninsula. While the US and North Korea would avoid unilateral action, rising tensions in the region mean either one might, in haste, misread moves by the other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't be quite so certain, from the American perspective, that there will be no "overt move" against North Korea.

I would suggest that such a move might come in the form of a "false flag"operation, to be blamed on North Korea, as the "excuse" for a decap strike/invasion.

Otherwise, there is absolutely no logical justification for the strike group to even be where it is.

"Bombs don't make peace!" Germany's Die Linke Party NOT lining up with MerkHollande

"The international law-breaking US rocket attack puts Syria farther away from a peaceful solution and has ISIS rejoicing. The situation right now is a tinderbox and threatens to get completely out of control at any moment. A peaceful solution for Syria can only happen with the US and Russia under the close integration of the UN Security Council."

As Fort Russ readers know, Merkel and Hollande (now and forever after to be known as Merkhollande) issued a joint statement that Assad was to blame for the US rocket attack. Yesterday we posted some French dissenting voices, today, this one for a strong German voice of dissent.

According to police, the armed-and-dangerous man made off with 16 guns from the robbery and should not be approached.

Poodle Trump Runs With Dogs of War

So the brash, big-mouth tycoon in the White House with an outsized ego has finally unleashed the dogs of war in Syria.

Invoking God and the suffering of “little babies”, the supposed US Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump ordered the bombing of Syria with cruise missiles launched from warships in the Mediterranean

But the upshot is this: Trump is acting like an obedient poodle going along with the Machiavellian American power system. Invoking God and suffering babies is just a shallow moral cover for his complicity in another US criminal act – in a countless list of such crimes down through history.

To save his political skin and no doubt lucrative future business opportunities for his dynasty, Trump has donned the cap of Commander-in-Chief and is groveling before the American war machine.

He is handing over an “official” license for war in Syria that the American Deep State has been craving for years.

Your Financial Life Could Be Ruined If Your Name Is On This Massive Government List

Muhammed Ali Khan tried to do one of the most boring, responsible things an American taxpayer can do: set up a government-guaranteed retirement savings account. He was rejected because the Treasury Department thought he might be a terrorist.

He isn’t. He’s a software consultant from Fullerton, California. But he shares a first name (with a different spelling), last name and middle initial with a financier of a Pakistani terror group. That man, Mohammad Naushad Alam Khan, is on the Treasury Department’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN). The 1,026-page catalog lists people and organizations that U.S. citizens and residents are barred from doing business with because of their ties to terror cells, drug cartels or rogue states.

The SDN is essentially a financial no-fly list that cuts people off from U.S. banks ? and, as a result, the global financial system. The SDN has more than doubled in length in the last five years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a blatant example of the US government going rogue.

And President Trump, a word please.

The one true, and tested, way of stopping any kind of terrorism in its tracks is the following recipe.

Stop expropriating natural resources from foreign countries, to which the US government and corporations have no moral right.

Stop regime-changing governments not to your liking.

You're welcome, Mr. President!! :-)

‘$64 question: Where is US evidence Assad behind Idlib chemical attack?’

The US says its missile strike on the Syrian airbase was in retaliation for the chemical attack in Idlib province which killed scores of civilians on Tuesday. However, Damascus firmly rejects any involvement.

America's UN envoy Nikki Haley held up images, purporting to show child victims of the chemical incident. She said it bears all the hallmarks of the Assad regime's use of chemicals.

The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that no probe into Syrian government involvement in the Idlib attack had been conducted yet. Spokesperson Maria Zakharova pointed out that, despite the US calling for an investigation, the country then went on to destroy the planes they wanted to investigate, adding that it has nothing to do with establishing the truth.

RUSSIAN ARRESTED IN SPAIN OVER SUSPICION OF US ELECTION HACKING

An alleged Russian hacker, Pyotr Levashov, has been detained in Barcelona at the request of the FBI, an arrest that set cybersecurity circles abuzz after a Russian broadcaster raised the possibility it was linked to the U.S. presidential election, AP reports. A spokeswoman for Spain's National Court said that the Pyotr Levashov was arrested in response to a U.S. computer crimes warrant while a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Madrid confirmed the arrest on Sunday.

While it was not immediately clear why Levashov was arrested, Russian television station RT reported that Levashov was arrested under a U.S. international arrest warrant and was suspected of being involved in hacking attacks linked to alleged interference in last year's U.S. election. Peter Carr, a spokesman for the U.S. Justice Department’s criminal division, said: "The U.S. case remains under seal, so we have no information to provide at this time."

AN UNHINGED MCCAIN CALLS FOR MORE WAR IN SYRIA, SAYS RUSSIA IS GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES

John McCain was on Face the Nation today, getting his neocon on, discussing the next steps that needed to be taken in Syria -- dealing with Assad.

He approved of the President's strikes -- calling it a good 'first step.' But, he wants MOAR -- accusing both Syria and Russia of war crimes, in addition to blaming Assad for the rise of ISIS. You cannot make this stuff up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Senator Mc Cain is a complete embarrassment to the people of Arizona, and I would suspect that his consistency in getting re-elected has much to do with both his value to the American Deep State, and some really intensive vote-rigging.

Mc Cain's personal fortune is well-documented.

Senator John Mc Cain's net worth is 21 million dollars

Now, that's an investment that needs to be tended to.

So I have to wonder; how much of this is invested in the military/industrial complex?!?

We will never really know,because, unfortunately, Congressional representatives do not have to put their financial affairs into a blind trust as does the President.

But frankly, Senator Mc Cain has NEVER met a potential war he didn't absolutely love!!

Chemical warfare in America

International pharmaceutical cartels and monopolies are not just marketing chemicals as medicine. They are deeply involved or, better stated, they are in business with government.

It’s about power and the New World Order. The controlled press wouldn’t dare touch this subject.

YEMEN HUMANITARIAN CRISIS WORSE THAN SYRIA; WITH US ASSISTANCE, SAUDI STARVING YEMEN: PORTER

By February 2016, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen as a result of the Saudi blockade was already worse than Syria’s. The UN Security Council had a series of meetings about humanitarian access in both Syria and Yemen, and the members of the Council agreed that resolutions should guarantee humanitarian access — the ability to get food and other humanitarian assistance — to those in need in both countries. But once again, after the Saudis intervened with the United States and its European allies to oppose such a resolution on Yemen, the idea was dropped.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is what the US enabled Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports is creating:

Images: Yemeni children starving to death from malnutrition due to Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports

I would like to politely remind President Trump, who has just signed off on more weapons for Saudi Arabia President Trump signs off on more weapons for Saudi Arabia and Bahrainthat death by malnutrition is one of the cruelest forms of child abuse imaginable, right up there with being poisoned in the womb through the use of depleted uranium weapons (as the Saudis are using in Yemen).

But hey; American weapons manufactures are making a KILLING (literally and figuratively) with the weapons they are selling to Saudi Arabia, so who cares, right, Mr. President?!?

CHENEY, ROTHSCHILD, AND FOX NEWS’ MURDOCH VIOLATE INTERNATIONAL LAW BY DRILLING FOR OIL IN SYRIA

After concluding the flow testing phase, Afek Oil and Gas will now begin analyzing samples drawn from the Ness-2 drilling site, euphemistically dubbed “Deborah’s Well,” in the Israeli-occupied region of Syria known as the Golan Heights. New Jersey-based Genie Energy, Ltd., Afek’s parent company, claims a dubious cadre of investors cum war profiteers, including Rupert Murdoch, Dick Cheney, Lord Jacob Rothschild, James Woolsey — as well as a number of current and former U.S. politicians.

Prior testing at a separate Afek site did not meet expectations, so the company sought other “sweet spots” in the area. Analysis of samples from additional wells will be performed by Afek scientists in conjunction with “external international experts.”

Looks Like Donald Trump May Well Be Jewish That Would Explain A Great Deal...

In his biography The Art of the Deal, Trump lied about his grandfather's country of origin, stating it was Sweden instead of Germany. So if you think these people wouldn't lie about their ancestry, you need to explain that whopper.

Trump was brought up in Jamaica Estates, Queens, which has a large Jewish population. He went to Kew-Forest School, ditto. Its other notable alumni include Katherine Weber, Jewish, Gideon Yago, Jewish, and Hank Azaria, Jewish. Googling on “attended Kew-Forest” brings up mostly Jewish names. Trump's father was on the Board of Trustees at Kew-Forest. By the way, it is very expensive.

His genealogy is a total mirage. I'll show you where to look. First go to his mother at Geni.com

THE DEBT CRISIS OF 2017: ONCE THEIR VACATION ENDS, CONGRESS WILL HAVE 4 DAYS TO AVOID A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN ON APRIL 29

April 2017 could turn out to be one of the most important months in U.S. history that we have seen in a very long time. On April 6th, Donald Trump attacked Syria on the 100th anniversary of the day that the U.S. officially entered World War I, and now at the end of this month we could be facing an unprecedented political crisis in Washington. On Friday, members of Congress left town for their two week “Easter vacation”, and they won’t resume work until April 25th. What this means is that Congress will have precisely four days when they get back to pass a bill to fund government operations or there will be a government shutdown starting on April 29th.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A two-week Easter vacation, when President Trump has just ordered, and executed, a military strike against Syria; the US economy is in utter meltdown; and we have warships on the way to North Korean territory?!?

Must be nice not to give a rat's anus about the people Congress is allegedly representing!!

RAND PAUL DEMANDS EVIDENCE OF CHEMICAL ATTACK, SAYS WASHINGTON IS “EXCITED” ABOUT WAR WITH SYRIA

Senator Rand Paul is calling on the Senate Intelligence Committee to review the evidence linking Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to a chemical weapons attack that lead to Trump’s illegal missile strike on Syria.

Paul went on the “The Laura Ingraham Show” and noted that Assad is“either the dumbest dictator in the world, or it may be more confusing.”

“I would like to see the evidence…In all this rush, why don’t we at least look at the intelligence instead of getting somebody’s conclusion on TV second-hand from the president.”

“I don’t dispute the evidence, I just haven’t seen it.”
Paul told Laura Ingraham that ‘it makes no sense for Assad to use chemical weapons. He was winning the six-year-old civil war, had the support of Russian troops on the ground, and, just days earlier, received a public statement from U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that regime change was not America’s goal.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of false flag to me.

And BTW, while we are talking about children dying; what is President Trump going to do to prevent his BFF, Saudi Arabia, from killing children in Yemen from outright airstrikes; the slow and painful death from malnutrition; and death from depleted uranium poisoning?!?

My dear Ivanka Trump, when, please, was the last time you saw these images, all of which are real, and none of which have been photoshopped?!?

Into the Abyss… Again…

In the wake of this week’s attack on Syria, we’ve been forced to endure the same old neocons spouting the same lies on the same news outlets. This is, of course, yet more evidence that in contemporary America, the ruling class is never held accountable for anything. In 2008, the banking elite looted the financial system and nearly collapsed the world economy, and no one of any prominence was punished in any significant way. In 2003, our political leaders spewed waves of deliberately falsified propaganda in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. Thousands of our soldiers died, a million Iraqis perished, and trillions of dollars were wasted. Yet no one was ever held liable for what they had done.

In what is being called “Petraeus’ second war,” McMaster has been advising Trump to raise an army to impose a regime change in Syria.

Russia, Iran and Hezbollah military leaders release joint statement, threatens the U.S.

Fits about to hit the Shan!

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – The military operation rooms of Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and other allies have just released a new joint statement. This joint statement was spurred on by US aggression that saw the country strike the Shayrat Airbase in rural Homs with Tomahawk missiles.

The statement released in Arabic states that the allied operations room recognizes that the US is supporting the separation of northern Syria and Iraq from their respective states.

Point seven of the statement details how all US military are legitimate targets as they have crossed every red line possible and operate illegally in Syria. It then emphasizes that the joint military operations room will respond strongly to any aggression and any violation made by the US in Syria.

It appears this is another corporate media hoax. There is no confirmation from Moscow.

Luring Trump Into Mideast Wars

"Tuesday’s poison-gas incident in Idlib thus offered a way out regardless of who was actually responsible. Trump decided to fire away before the facts were in because the enemy he is most worried about is not the one half a world away in Syria, but the Democratic-neocon alliance in his own backyard. The only way for Trump to make peace with the “deep state” in Washington was by waging war on Syria."

Donald Trump’s Pick For Top Economic Adviser Is Pro-Immigration, Pro-Outsourcing

Had enough?

President Donald Trump has picked an economic advisor who believes in growing the nation’s economy by importing workers and consumers, and by expanding free-trade outsourcing, despite Trump’s “buy American, hire American” campaign promises.

Kevin Hassett is slated to become chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors if he is approved by the Senate’s banking committee. If Hassett is confirmed, that will be a win for the corporatist, business-first faction in Trump’s White House, which fights for influence in the Oval Office against the populist, America-first faction that helped Trump win the election in November.

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

Once again we have in the White House a hugely inexperienced and inarticulate president with zero foreign policy knowledge.

He is desperate, as was George W. Bush, to rescue himself from historically abysmal poll numbers at the start of his presidency.

Most terrifyingly, Trump is, like Bush, surrounded by hot-headed military hawks in his National Security Adviser Lt General HR McMaster, his Defence Secretary General Jim Mattis, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

They are the ideological heirs of the architects of the Iraq invasion under Bush, whose military interventionist agenda Trump has suddenly adopted despite railing against it on the campaign trail.

These men are unrepentant about the Iraq catastrophe and are just as determined as their predecessors to wreak havoc in the Middle East, come what may.

Egypt's president called for a three-month state of emergency Sunday after at least 43 people were killed and more than 100 more were injured in two Palm Sunday suicide attacks at Coptic Christian churches, each carried out by the ISIS terror group.

Sunday's first blast happened at St. George Church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 27 people were killed and 78 others wounded, officials said.

Television footage showed the inside of the church, where a large number of people gathered around what appeared to be lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers.

Trump considering sanctions against Russia & Iran over Syria – US envoy to UN

US President Donald Trump is considering implementing new sanctions against Russia and Iran, the US ambassador to UN, Nikki Haley has said in an interview with CNN.

Speaking to Jake Tapper, the host of the State of the Union show, on Sunday, the US official said that the issue of the new sanctions is already being discussed.

“I think that’s conversations that he [Trump] will be having and have started to have, going forward. But I think he will have to look at the situation,” Haley told the CNN host when asked whether Trump “wants tougher sanctions on Russia and Iran.”

Nothing “is off the table at this point,” she added.

The discussions are linked to the situation in Syria, she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The existing sanctions against Russia and Iran have only proven to make them more self reliant, and their economies more resilient; so is President Trump going to double down on a policy which is not working?!?

Kremlin tells U.S. it's 'one step from war' as Trump warns he will hit Syria AGAIN after his attack on Russia's ally Assad triggers fears of World War Three

The Kremlin has warned the US it is ‘one step from war' over Syria - but the Trump administration hit back by saying it would be prepared to carry out airstrikes again.

In the first direct American raid on Bashar al Assad’s forces, President Trump authorised the firing of 59 cruise missiles at a military airfield.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev denounced the US for attacking ‘the legitimate government of Syria’ and for allegedly breaking international law without the approval of the UN.

Mr Medvedev said: ‘This military action is a clear indication of the US president’s extreme dependency on the views of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticised in his inauguration speech.'

‘Soon after his victory, I noted that everything would depend on how soon Trump’s election promises would be broken by the existing power machine. It took only two and a half months.

ISRAEL SEEKS BUFFER ZONE ON BORDERS WITH SYRIA

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking a buffer zone against Syria, Iran and Hezbollah on the borders with Syria to be part of any future deal to end the Syrian crisis, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported on Friday.

According to the Israeli newspaper, Netanyahu proposed this issue during meetings with American and other coalition countries.

Netanyahu wants to prevent Iran and Hezbollah from establishing a foothold and he intends to undermine future attacks against Israel, noting that he had suggested international forces to supervise his proposed buffer zone.

Last Friday, the Israeli Maariv revealed that Netanyahu sent messages to the international parties involved in the talks about Syria’s future.

FORMER CIA OFFICER: "THE INTELLIGENCE CONFIRMS THE RUSSIAN ACCOUNT ON SYRIA"

President Trump earned neocon applause for his hasty decision to attack Syria and kill about a dozen Syrians, but his rash act has all the earmarks of a “wag the dog” moment.

Just two days after news broke of an alleged poison-gas attack in northern Syria, President Trump brushed aside advice from some U.S. intelligence analysts doubting the Syrian regime’s guilt and launched a lethal retaliatory missile strike against a Syrian airfield.

But a number of intelligence sources have made contradictory assessments, saying the preponderance of evidence suggests that Al Qaeda-affiliated rebels were at fault, either by orchestrating an intentional release of a chemical agent as a provocation or by possessing containers of poison gas that ruptured during a conventional bombing raid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has all the earmarks of a deliberate "false flag" to me.

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is many things; but crazy, he isn't.

This was a week when things were going his way; his military, coupled with that of Russia, was beating the jihadists into a pulp, and Rex Tillerson publicly stated that Assad could stay in power (at least for the immediate future).

So why, in the name of heaven, would he gas his own people?!? Cui Bono?!? Who benefits?!?

He would not benefit; ISIS, however, would benefit greatly, if there was a false flag it engineered to make it appear that this had been the work of the Syrian government.

And of course, Israel indirectly benefits, because regime changing Damascus is a "step on the road" to regime changing Tehran, which is a big, huge Israeli geopolitical objective.
