The Unraveling of American/Russian Relations

It is time to move on to another unraveling—that of US/Russian relations. This unraveling is far more serious as it threatens life on earth. I have warned of the consequences of Washington threatening Russia’s security by breaking agreement after agreement, by placing missile bases on Russia’s borders, by orchestrating anti-Russian coups in former Soviet provinces, and by a continuing volley of false accusations against Russia. There is no act more reckless and irresponsible than to make one nuclear power fear nuclear attack from another.

The Endgame of Financialization: Stealth Nationalization

As you no doubt know, central banks don’t actually print money and toss it out of helicopters; they create a digital liability and use this new currency to buy assets such as bonds and stocks. Central banks have found that they can take control of the stock and bond markets by buying up as much as these markets as is necessary to force price and yield to do the central banks’ bidding.

The Telltale Signs the Western Oligarchs Are Doomed

The western world’s most famous “fake news” tabloid these days, Newsweek continues its unending tabloid Russophobia with “Putin’s Birthday: Protests Call for his Exit as he Hits Retirement Age Under Russian Law”. I’ll not get into how or why Newsweek became a media whore for the globalists, this Pew Research analysis of the magazine industry should explain this succinctly. The fact there is virtually no dissent aimed at Vladimir Putin inside Russia shows once again the Russian leader’s winning ways. I can almost hear the average Newsweek policy genius reader glowing with agreement, “Hey, that’s right, it’s illegal for Putin to be president anymore!” As if the universe will turn over, and America will elect Hillary Clinton and become truly great again of Putin is gone!

Firm Behind "Trump Dossier" Refuses To Comply With Congressional Subpoena

The three co-founders of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm responsible for overseeing the creation of the infamous “Trump dossier”, will refuse to comply with a subpoena ordered by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, according to a letter from their attorneys originally obtained by Business Insider.

But experts say the argument their lawyers are using to ask that they be excused relies on shaky legal grounds, and is unlikely to hold.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Their reasons for refusing to comply with a House Intelligence Committee, and running the risk of a Contempt of Congress resolution, are probably very simple; the dossier was a farce and fabrication from beginning to end.

US Deploys Special Forces "Decapitation" Team To South Korea

Today, the South Korean and U.S. navies kicked off massive combined drills off the coast of the Korean peninsula amid heightened tensions, a training exercise which North Korea has warned may prompt another ballistic missile launch potentially to coincide with the launch of the Chinese 19th Party Congress on October 18. The two allies plan to continue the Maritime Counter Special Operations Exercise (MCSOFEX) through Friday in the East Sea and the Yellow Sea.

As reported over the weekend, the drill involves the U.S. 7th Fleet's aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) and two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers - the USS Stethem (DDG-63) and the USS Mustin (DDG-89). The carrier strike group will train with South Korean warships and other defense assets, such as the Sejong the Great Aegis ship and P-3 Orion anti-submarine aircraft in the East Sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the info reported from Yonhap might be true, why blab it to the world, and lose the element of surprise?!?

Do they think that such a rumor is going to get Kim Jung Un to back down from his defense of his nuclear missile program?!?

Are they trying to provoke him into an attack by letting this info get out?!?

The ultimate reason for such a statement about the decap strike team to get made public like this is...very cloudy and occult right now.

I am in Guantánamo Bay. The US government is starving me to death: Khalid Qassim

I haven’t had food in my stomach for 23 days. The 20 September was the day they told us they would no longer feed us. They have decided to leave us to waste away and die instead.

I am in so much pain every minute that I know it can’t go on much longer. Now as each night comes, I wonder if I will wake up in the morning. When will my organs fail? When will my heart stop? I am slowly slipping away and no one notices.

There is a man who is in charge of all the medical staff. I don’t know his name but they call him the senior medical officer. He was the one who called us all in and told us they would stop feeding us. As soon as he took over I knew he was bad news and now he has decided to end our lives.

I don’t have many days left.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So this... no trial, no medical treatment, no compassion, and utterly, no rule of law- is what "justice" looks like at Gitmo.

I am appalled and sickened by this, and if the US government and military continue with this treatment of prisoners of war, President Trump just might as well remove the US as a signator to the Geneva Conventions on the treatment of prisoners of war.

...Or does he even know the US government ever signed it?!? At this point, I wouldn't bet against that!!

North Korea invites Iran to struggle together against US’ unfair steps - delegation leaderMore:http://tass.com/world/970795

. North Korea invites Iran to pool efforts to "struggle against injustice" of the United States’ unfairness," Deputy Chairman of North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly An Tong Chun, who heads his country’s delegation to the Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly, said at a brief meeting with speaker of Iran’s parliament (Mejlis) Ali Larijani on Sunday.
"Thank you for your speech. It was a brilliant speech," he said.
"We have a strong will against offenders, we and you have been struggling for a long time," he noted. "Let us struggle together against injustice, for justice."

Earlier in the day, Larijani severely criticized the United States’ actions, including those related to the Iran nuclear deal. He said that US President Donald Trump is demonstrating disrespect to the United Nations and inability to implement international agreements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Speaker Larijani, please do not go for this; sir, I am on my knees with lighted candles in each hand, because what passes for the alleged "free press" in this country, i.e., the corporate Presstitutes who simply regurgitate government propaganda, are already demonizing your country by linking it to North Korea, and suggesting that you are assisting North Korea in its nuclear weapons program.

And we have already heard the grating statement from President Trump's "BimboBassador to the UN, Nikki Haley yesterday:

US Envoy to UN Says Trump's Move on Iran Nuclear Deal Message to North Korea

Oh, yes, Ambassador Haley, a message was sent from President Trump, loudly and clearly; the US government believes that it has the right of refusal to honor any deals which have been made in good faith, therefore, North Korea is correct in their not engaging any negotiations with the US.

Joint US and South Korean Navy Drills Kick Off Around the Korean Peninsula

The joint week-long navy drills of the US and South Korean fleets have kicked off. About 40 vessels, including the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, are taking part in maneuvers in the waters around the Korean Peninsula.

The naval drills are aimed at exercising a possible strike against the key military sites of Pyongyang in case of an emergency situation on the Korean peninsula, the YTN TV channel said on Monday

US submarines USS Tucson and USS Michigan are also currently in the ports of South Korea, the media said.

On Thursday, the US 7th Fleet issues a statement, saying that US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and Arleigh Burke-class destroyers USS Stethem and USS Mustin will also take part in the drills.

The exercises come against the backdrop of escalating pressure on Korean peninsula over Pyongyang’s missile and nuclear tests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these exercises only last for one week, then the "window" for a false flag/decap strike, is very small.

And that statement in the 2nd paragraph of the article, stating "The naval drills are aimed at exercising a possible strike against the key military sites of Pyongyang in case of an emergency situation on the Korean peninsula, the YTN TV channel said on Monday." is very worrisome.

That "emergency situation" will most likely come, courtesy of a US false flag.

It appears that those in the bowels of power in DC have gone deaf, dumb, and blind, to the Chinese government's statement that if the US attacks first, they will support North Korea.

In light of the fact that Mike and I are sitting on a first-strike target which China can actually target - and obliterate - color us more than a little nervous for the next week or so.

There is one resource I look at on a consistent basis, regarding North
Korea, and that is the website 38north.org: I encourage you to bookmark it.

This research group, under the auspices of John Hopkins University, is a pretty sober and sane evaluation of actions going on in North Korea, regarding their weapons program, and the information is done via satellite tracking.

Unfortunately, the last posed article is datemarked Friday. And on Friday, there was no mention whatsoever of movement of North Korean missiles as a prelude to a launch; and getting missiles to their launch sites does require preparation.

'Gutted!' Hillary Clinton FAILS to turn up for TV and radio appearances with Philip Schofield, Women's Hour and Graham Norton after 'falling over and hurting her foot' during London book tour

Hillary Clinton was forced to make a series of embarrassing media cancellations today after falling and hurting her foot, MailOnline can reveal.

The former First Lady failed to show up at BBC Woman’s Hour, ITV's This Morning show and at the London Studios to record an interview with the BBC's Graham Norton Show.

Sources said her fall had followed her appearance at the South Bank Centre last night and the twice-defeated Presidential candidate had been exhausted after a lengthy book promotion tour.

Notorious US Regime-Change Specialist Targets Hungarian PM Orban

Many readers likely never heard the name of the remarkable Serbia-born political operator named Sr?a Popovi?.

Yet he and his organization, CANVAS, have played a lead role in most every CIA-backed Color Revolution since he led the toppling of Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic in 2000, at least fifty according to last count.

On September 8, the professional regime-change specialist Sr?a Popovi? came to Budapest and joined with the anti-Orban opposition groups in front of the Hungarian Parliament.

It‘s clear that Popovi? was not in town to promote his Hungarian book on nonviolent regime change but rather to give aid to the anti-Orban parties before Hungarian elections in spring of 2018.

Many in Hungary smell the oily hand of Hungarian-born regime-change financier George Soros behind the Popovi? appearance now in Budapest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The current Hungarian government, under Orban, is enforcing borders; language; and culture. They have seen what a mess unrestricted immigration has made of Germany, Sweden, Norway, and beyond, and want no part of it.

When people want to assimilate; train to work and be competitive; and embrace the cultural identity of their adoptive country, that's one thing; but attempting to enforce the cultural norms of their former countries; never learning the language, and living in the victimhood of entitlement... that is a whole different kettle of kumquats!!

Rocket carrying a 'spy satellite' blasts off from Florida as US launches its second top-secret mission in three weeks

A spy satellite atop an Atlas V rocket blasted off on a classified mission early Sunday morning from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

US officials have not revealed what the satellite will be doing or what its orbit will be, making it the second secret spy craft launched by the country in just three weeks.

Some have suggested it will use sensors to gather data on an enemy's electronic defence network, including radars, surface-to-air missile systems and aircraft.

Tillerson Pledges Diplomacy With North Korea ‘Until the First Bomb Drops’

Tillerson’s comments on CNN’s “State of the Union” program on Sunday apparently weren’t meant literally as a timeline for war, as he preceded that quote by saying, “He has made it clear to me to continue my diplomatic efforts,” and that those efforts “will continue until the first bomb drops.”

Still, they came as South Korean military officials are readying for another possible missile launch by Pyongyang. Multiple South Korean media reports citing unidentified military officials on Saturday and Sunday said North Korean missile vehicles “kept appearing and disappearing” from the map and “transporter erector launchers” had been spotted carrying ballistic missiles

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I getting the very uneasy feeling, with Tillerson's having used that precise langugate, that we are looking at a "false flag" here, to be blamed upon North Korea, as the justification for an attack against it?!?

THE EMPIRE COMES HOME COUNTERINSURGENCY, POLICING, AND THE MILITARIZATION OF AMERICA’S CITIES

Brutal Connections

As in Baghdad, so in Baltimore. It’s connected, you see. Scholars, pundits, politicians, most of us in fact like our worlds to remain discretely and comfortably separated. That’s why so few articles, reports, or op-ed columns even think to link police violence at home to our imperial pursuits abroad or the militarization of the policing of urban America to our wars across the Greater Middle East and Africa. I mean, how many profiles of the Black Lives Matter movement even mention America’s 16-year war on terror across huge swaths of the planet? Conversely, can you remember a foreign policy piece that cited Ferguson? I doubt it.

Nonetheless, take a moment to consider the ways in which counterinsurgency abroad and urban policing at home might, in these years, have come to resemble each other and might actually be connected phenomena:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sometimes, one has to wonder if this divisiveness is not actually being "pushed" by elements in the American deep State, to encourage the level of divisiveness and strife necessary for generating a suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law in this country.

I am part of a Methodist faith community, and I deeply appreciate it for its absolute inclusivity; the gentle, non-coercive education of its kids in their faith tradition; love of community; and love expressed beyond the community as practical acts of kindness throughout Oahu and the world.

But I can absolutely see that in the Imperial "mind set", very much in motion on the mainland, and areas of the world the US has "conquered" to access their resources, you do have elements of degradation; prejudice; the objectification and demonization of "the other"; and massive demoralization of people just trying to survive.

I cannot begin to imagine what it must be like for women in inner city neighborhoods, when their teens go out to be with friends, and never be quite certain that they will come home, or come home alive. That, frankly, would scare the stuffing out of me.

IRAN'S TOP GENERAL MEETS WITH KURDISH PRESIDENT BARZANI AS U.S. NEOCONS PUSH FOR WAR

In an unexpected diplomatic turn of events which underscores the seriousness of escalating tensions between the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), the head of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard (which last week were designated by the US as a terrorist organization), General Qassem Soleimani, arrived in Erbil on Sunday and met with Kurdistan regional president Masoud Barzani to discuss the growing crisis at a moment when Kurdish Peshmerga forces are blocking Iraqi Army access to Kirkuk oil fields and military installations.

Major General Qassem Soleimani reports directly to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and his elite force provides training and weapons to Iraqi paramilitary groups (PMU or Popular Mobilization Units) backing the Baghdad government. The meeting comes just after President Trump announced his new policy against Iran on Friday that includes designating the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a foreign terrorist organization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I am seeing here, from the US State Department, White House, and Pentagon, is foreign policy via dartboard, with no cohesive, top-down overview whatsoever.

And from yesterday, courtesy of zerohedge.com, we have the very much expected headline:

Casualties reported after Iraqi Troops Enter Oil Rich Kurdish City, Kirkuk: Oil "Spikes.

ISRAELI FIGHTER JETS LAUNCH AIR STRIKE ON SYRIAN AIR DEFENSE BATTERY NEAR DAMASCUS

After years of undermining the regime of Syrian leader Bashar al Assad, an effort that has seen Israel countenance ISIS training camps near its borders and launch recurring missile strikes on Syrian territory and its army bases while threatening to bomb Assad's palace, the simmering conflict between the two nations broke out into the open once again overnight.

The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed that Israeli Air Force fighters conducted a missile strike against a Syrian base after a missile was fired at Israeli jets on a routine aerial reconnaissance mission in Lebanese airspace, Russia's news agency Sputnik reports. No people were in injured, and the Israeli jets returned safely, but not before attacking an anti-aircraft battery east of the Syrian capital of Damascus. As usual, The IDF blamed the Syrian government for the incident, however, presenting no proof to support the claim. Damascus has yet to comment on the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF most probably cannot present "proof" because there is none.

And remember that the attack happened over Lebanese air space; not Syrian air space.

I hope to heck Russian President Putin is working the phones like crazy, to inform his counterpart, Prime Minister Netanyahu, that events like this will no longer be tolerated by the Syrian or Russian airspace.

Spectre of civil war looms over Iraq

It’s the most dangerous of brinkmanship and the stakes could not be higher. While not yet making the headlines it deserves, late Friday night after eleventh-hour negotiations between Kurdish and Iraqi government officials, Iraq seemed to step back from the brink of civil war - for now.

How Netanyahu Pulls Trump’s Strings

It turns out that Hillary Clinton was partly correct: President Trump is a “puppet,” but his puppet master isn’t Russian President Putin but Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu

In the final presidential debate of 2016, Hillary Clinton famously called Donald Trump the “puppet” of Russian President Vladimir Putin. But what’s increasingly clear is that Trump has a more typical puppet master for a U.S. politician – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Since Sept. 18, when the two men met in New York around the United Nations General Assembly, Netanyahu has been pulling Trump’s strings on almost every foreign policy issue. Arguably, the puppet/puppeteer relationship began much earlier, but I’ve been told that Trump bridled early on at Netanyahu’s control and even showed a few signs of rebellion.

Trump's Iran Plan Faces Resistance in Congress

With the entire international community having ruled out negotiating a new P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran including the terms President Trump wants, the administration’s strategy has focused on trying to get the US Congress to impose the changes within US participation in the deal.

This includes expanding US threats of “snap back” sanctions into myriad behaviors totally unrelated to the nuclear deal. No one else would respect these US demands, but it would give President Trump some claim of Congressional support for imposing sanctions in violation of the pact.

It’s not clear President Trump will be able to push this through Congress however, especially in the Senate,where trying to get 60 votes is going to involve courting Democrats. There weren’t a lot of Senate Democrats >>>

Michigan Military Base Is Third in State to Test Positive for Contaminated Water

A combat center in northern Michigan has become the third military base in the state to test positive for contaminated groundwater.
Preliminary results came in this week for tests conducted at five locations at the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center earlier this year, said Capt. Brian Blumline, a civil engineer for the base. Blumline said all the sites showed elevated levels of perfluorooctanoic acid and perfluorooctyl sulfonate, which are contaminants from firefighting foam that was used in training at the base many years ago. They were considered safe at the time.

From Boeing Co. to Ford Motor Co., companies are scrambling to check any affected products. And Japan Inc. is facing up to another embarrassing scandal.

Two Cents on the Decertification of the Iran Deal

President Trump had a good day on Friday. First there was the end of illegal “cost-sharing reduction” payments (subsidies) to insurers under ObamaCare — a laudable end to a totally extraconstitutional executive action by Obama. Hooray! Then Trump went even further and decertified the Iran deal. Double hooray!

Now. Let’s take a second and talk about the Iran deal. I for one have become sick of partisan knee-jerk reactions to every policy issue under the sun. So let’s avoid that sort of thing, and ask ourselves: why is the Iran deal bad, after all? Is it because Obama did it therefore it’s bad? Is it because Tougher Is Always Better in every situation, no matter what?

No and no. There are actual reasons >>>

(*#101 It actually would have been terrible had Hillary Clinton decertified the deal , herself !)

School district pulls 'To Kill A Mockingbird' from reading list; 'makes people uncomfortable'

The Biloxi school district in Mississippi has decided to remove To Kill a Mockingbird from its junior-high reading list. The reason? Some of the book’s language “makes people uncomfortable,” the vice president of the school board, Kenny Holloway, said. “There were complaints about it,” he added, “and we can teach the same lesson with other books.” The administrator insisted kids could still go to the library to read the book “but they're going to use another book in the 8th grade course.”

Trump goes full shabbos-goy – The Saker

For 10 years I have considered that my prediction of a US attack on Iran was the biggest analytical failure in my career. I now hope and pray that it will remain so...

At the risk of deepening what still might be my mistaken prognosis of 2007 I will say that yes, the USA will probably attack Iran. Since there is exactly ZERO chance of Iran caving in to the latest US-Israeli threats, not attacking Iran will now represent a major loss of face and humiliation for Trump and his Neocon masters. So the USA will go to war yet again, not for any rational reason, but solely because Bibi Netanyahu “owns” Trump and Israel “own” the USA.

'If Harvey Weinstein ever invites you to a private party, don't go': Courtney Love warned aspiring actresses of abuse in 2005 and claims she was 'banned' by mega agents at C.A.A afterwards

Courtney Love is further proof of the widening theory that more people in Hollywood knew of Harvey Weinstein's decades of abuse than have claimed.

In 2005, the starlet was asked on the red carpet what her advice for aspiring young actresses was.

At first she hesitated, turning her head to mutter: 'I'm gonna get libeled if I say it.'

But seconds later, she boldly and unequivocally went on the record with knowledge of his reputation.

'If Harvey Weinstein ever invites you to a private party at the Four Seasons, don't go,' she said.

A British woman who worked for ‘sexual predator’ Harvey Weinstein has broken a 25-year silence to tell how the film mogul raped her in the basement of his London offices.

A British woman who worked for ‘sexual predator’ Harvey Weinstein has broken a 25-year silence to tell how the film mogul raped her in the basement of his London offices.

The former Miramax employee was left so traumatised by the horrific attack that it was only last week that she was able to confide in her husband and tell him what had happened.

In an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, she explained her silence, saying: ‘I just felt mortified and ashamed – and that no one would believe me.

‘He was incredibly well-connected, powerful and important – and I was just a nobody.’

Oscars board revokes Harvey's lifetime membership over sexual harassment scandal meanwhile Woody Allen actress alleges Weinstein RAPED her at her London home as Scotland Yard investigates

An English actress has come forward with an allegation that Harvey Weinstein raped her. Meanwhile the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has expelled the producer amid his sexual harassment scandal.

Lysette Anthony, in an interview with the Times of London, alleges she was raped by the disgraced producer when he turned up at her home in the late 1980's. She told Mersey Police her claims last week, who turned the case over to Scotland Yard.

The Metropolitan Police previously confirmed they were investigating a claim without naming Anthony. Weinstein could face criminal prosecution over the attack.

Sex addiction is a myth - whatever the rich and famous say

Consider Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer at the centre of a storm of sexual assault allegations this week. No sooner had the news broke than he was claiming to be addicted to sex and checking in to an exclusive clinic.

This is a well-worn, PR-managed response to any indiscretion by the rich and famous.

Caught in a compromising position, pants around your ankles? Quick, get into rehab. No one will dare criticise you then because you’re unwell; it’s not your fault. In fact, you’re actually the victim here because you have a cruel illness. Poor you.

What tosh. In reality, these ‘rehab’ clinics are often little more than five-star hotels with therapists, who will nod sympathetically, tagged on.

Norway plans to send armored unit close to Russian border

Norway said on Friday it planned to send an armored battalion near its arctic border with Russia and buy more tanks and artillery to respond to growing threats.

Defence Minister Ine Eriksen Soereide did not mention Russia as she described her minority government’s defense plan, and said she did not see a specific, current military threat.

But the NATO member and other nearby countries have grown increasingly alarmed about Moscow’s ambitions, particularly following its annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region in 2014 and its naval and air force maneuvers in the region

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note when I have talked about narrative supporting the US deep State's agenda; Russia is again being charged with "annexing Crimea" by Reuters, which is an absolute, complete lie. Caught you AGAIN, Reuters!

President Obama administ that Washington brokered a deal in Ukraine in support of regime change

Didn't quite get to that factoid, did you Reuters?!?

After the "coup-coup-ca-CHEW" in Kiev, which replaced Yanukovych with Poroshenko, Crimean officials understood that there was no legitimate government in Ukraine. The then held a free and fair referendum, asking their people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, post-coup, or petition the Russian government to become a member of the Russian Federation. they overwhelmingly voted to petition the Russian government to become part of the Russian Federation:

Crimea applies to be part of Russian Federation after vote to leave Ukraine

THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO ANNEXATION OF CRIMEA WHATSOEVER, FOLKS!!

But you see, these well-documented facts do NOT support the demonization against Russia, leading ultimately toward a war against it; so Reuters just continues to lie about the facts of the matter, because the demonization is engineered to support the agenda of a war against Russia.

You can't lie to thinking Americans any more, Reuters; that is just not going to work. And whatever it is that the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika are paying you, it cannot be enough!!

And if you think I'm "over-reacting" on this, please read the following article By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts about the ultimate American intensions of wars with Russia and China:

Washington plans to nuke Russia and China

This guy is about as sobering as a heart attack, with impeccible credentials, and a strong, analytic way of pulling information together.

Trump Decertifies

Trump Decertifies
by The Editors of THE NATIONAL REVIEW

Trump is decertifying the Iran deal, and gave a tough-minded speech announcing his decision.

We have opposed the Iran deal from the beginning. Building on the North Korean model of negotiations, Tehran engaged in a years-long dialogue with the West over the question of whether it would have a nuclear program, all the while developing its nuclear program. The upshot of the agreement was that we accepted Iran’s becoming a threshold nuclear power and showered it with sanctions relief — including, literally, a plane-full of cash — for the privilege.
