Politico: GOP Senators Plan No-Safeguards Amnesty by Spring

China's launch of 'petro-yuan' in two months sounds death knell for dollar's dominance

One of the world’s top energy importers, China, is set to roll out a yuan-denominated oil contract as early as this year. Analysts call the plan, announced by Beijing in September, a huge move against the dollar's global dominance.

The so-called petro-yuan is a “wake up call” for investors who haven’t paid attention to the Chinese plans, according to the head of Graticule Asset Management Asia Adam Levinson, as quoted by Bloomberg.

War, Flowers, Silver, Gold and The “Plan”

Fifty years ago the U.S. bombed North Vietnam. That worked out well for the military contractors but not for people or global economies.

Twenty six years ago the U.S. fought Iraq and Saddam Hussein. That worked out well for the military contractors but not for people or global economies.

Ten years ago the U.S. fought in Iraq. That worked out well for the military contractors but not for people or global economies.

Today the U.S. is bombing several countries and threatening others. How will this benefit people and global economies?

When will they ever learn?

Lord & Taylor sells its flagship Manhattan store to workshare office space company WeWork for $850million - but will continue its famous holiday displays for at least two years

Lord & Taylor's flagship store in Manhattan, known for its holiday displays along Fifth Avenue, is being sold to the office space sharing company WeWork.

The nearly 100-year-old building will be converted to WeWork headquarters, with less than a quarter of the space remaining for a Lord & Taylor store. Right now, 10 of the building's 11 floors are devoted to retail.

WeWork attracts millennials who are looking to share office space, a consumer segment that Lord & Taylor owner Hudson's Bay and other department stores want to attract.

So store executives expect the stores to benefit from WeWork members going in and out of the building, and hopes they'll be shopping.

US Officials: Niger Is ‘Hub’ for US Operations in Western Africa

US officials describing the military operation in Niger, which only became public knowledge earlier this month after four US special forces were killed in an ambush, have not only revealed that nearly 1,000 US troops are on the ground in Niger, a massive force for the tiny country, but that this is the “hub” for US military operations in Western Africa.

Details on what exactly that means are scant, since the Niger military operation was basically a secret, and by extension so are all the other regional operations that we’re not being told about. Officials did assure reporters Niger has the most troops in the region.

Niger has hosted a US drone base for years, and about 100 troops were reported deployed in 2012. Somewhere between then and now, this increased ten-fold, and those troops started engaging in patrols. African Command says there are no armed US warplanes in West Africa at present, but that they rely on French warplanes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are in Niger for the same reasons US troops are garrisoned all over the world; to insure its government is western-centric; to expropriate resources to which those companies supporting both political parties have utterly no moral right; and to insure that those resources are only sold to countries of which the US government approves, and only in the US dollar.

This is also, by the way, an insurance against Russia and China getting hold of those resources before US companies do.

A Well-Kept Open Secret: Washington Is Behind India’s Brutal Demonetization Project

In early November 2016, without warning, the Indian government declared the two largest denomination bills invalid, abolishing over 80 percent of circulating cash by value. Amidst all the commotion and outrage this caused, nobody seems to have taken note of the decisive role that Washington played in this. That is surprising, as Washington’s role has been disguised only very superficially.

Even a devoted admirer of the Orange Man couldn’t swallow his strange battle of words with Kim, his threats to Iran, his UNESCO farce – and keep a straight face. The only comfort is that Hillary would have been even worse. Is he a comic miscast, a buffoon? Actually, Trump is doing the thankless job of soft-landing the US Empire.

The iPhone 7 Was Selling Better Than the iPhone 8. So Apple Started Discontinuing the iPhone 7.

Apple is destroying old phones as sales tank by 900,000+ units.

In previous years, fans have lined up for days on end to get their hands on Apple’s latest iPhone.

So how has the iPhone 8 fared? Well, not so great.

Last week, KeyBanc Capital Markets found that unlike previous years, older model iPhones have outsold the latest iterations. According to sales data, AT&T’s iPhone sales have gone down by 900,000 units compared to last year.

Instead, consumers are purchasing iPhone 7s instead of the latest models. And who can blame them?

KeyBanc analyst John Vinh noted,

“Many respondents indicated that a meaningful portion of customers are buying iPhone 7 in lieu of the new iPhone 8, given the lack of significant enhancements in the new phone.”

Pressure' on US Needed to Solve N Korea Crisis Diplomatically – Peace Activist

Amid the ongoing tensions over North Korea, the US is reportedly preparing to put its nuclear-armed B-52 bombers back on 24-hour alert, a measure unseen since 1991. Arthur West, Chairman of the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, explained why this decision is rather dangerous and what should be done instead to resolve the crisis.
Sputnik: Despite North Korea making significant progress with their nuclear weapons program… is this necessarily the right response from the US? What affect will this move have on the already delicate situation?

Arthur West (AW): The response by the United States is deeply depressing. I’m afraid it’s a very worrying development and I think it could escalate tensions. The response should be concentrated on a diplomatic solution to the issues.

Sputnik: From your perspective, instead of this constant ‘one upping’ of each other from the US and North Korea, what should be done to alleviate tensions between North Korea and the West?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

West is entirely correct in his assessment here; unfortunately, just because something is the most pig-headedly, hamn-fistedly stupid thing the US government could do, is absolutely no guarantee that it won't do it.

North Korea is developing its nuclear arsenal as a deterrent to any possible first strike from the US, and have no illusions about precisely what President Trump meant, during his tirade at the UN, screaming death and destruction for North Korea as well as Iran.

But would Kim Jung Un use such missiles in a first strike scenario?!? The answer would be "HELL no!", because they understand that such a move would cause their country to be turned into molten glass by a US military counterstrike.

Netanyahu Very Upset with Iraqi Forces Capturing Kirkuk, Takes Action to Reclaim Oil

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is very upset with Baghdad’s decision to drive back pro-Barzani forces from important cities and energy sites in Iraq.

One week ago, Iraqi pro-government forces launched a powerful offensive along the entire Kurdish frontier in northwestern Iraq, liberating a number of cities and towns and re-claiming from pro-Barzani militants the strategic Kirkuk oilfields and the Mosul Dam.

Perhaps more upset with this outcome than Barzani loyalists is Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government on a whole whose sense of oil security has been somewhat breached.

Whilst it is highly unlikely that Baghdad will cease sending oil to Israel, the price for its purchase will undoubtedly go up to levels that Israel is traditionally uncomfortable with.

What’s Going on in Niger? America’s Unspoken War against sub-Saharan Africa

Few Americans know anything about the country. They’re minimally knowledgeable geographically about nations only when Washington goes to war – testimony to public ignorance, a national disgrace in a nation where it’s simple to stay informed by following reliable independent online sources.

Niger is landlocked in central northwest Africa, nearly twice the size of France territorially. It’s the world’s fifth largest source of uranium, its fourth largest producer, reason enough for America’s presence.

Its other valued resources include coal, iron ore, tin, phosphates, gold, molybdenum, gypsum, salt and oil – with at least 40 billion barrels of proved reserves, perhaps multiples this amount, it’s believed, along with plentiful natural gas.

Niger became newsworthy with reports of militants killing four US special forces, the Pentagon saying little about what happened.

Are Our Mideast Wars Forever?

As their U.S. allies watched, the Kurdish peshmerga fighters were run out of Kirkuk and all the territory they had captured fighting ISIS alongside the Americans. The Iraqi army that ran them out was trained and armed by the United States.

The U.S. had warned the Kurds against holding the referendum on independence on Sept. 25, which carried with 92 percent. Iran and Turkey had warned against an independent Kurdistan that could be a magnet for Kurdish minorities in their own countries.

But the Iraqi Kurds went ahead. Now they have lost Kirkuk and its oil, and their dream of independence is all but dead.

More troubling for America is the new reality revealed by the rout of the peshmerga. Iraq, which George W. Bush and the neocons were going to fashion into a pro-Western democracy and American ally, appears to be as close to Iran as it is to the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American people have grown infinitely more war-weary and more war-sceptical than at any other time I have observed them, since the Vietnam War era.

I seriously doubt that they will support more wars, when our existing ones in places like Iraq; Niger; Somalia; Afghanistan; Syria; and Yemen are going so generally horribly badly.

That Iran should become politically dominant in Baghdad, Beiruit, or Damascus, is one of the unintended consequences of a number of poorly thought out and ill conceived war scenarios, dating back to the Bush era, which did not account for for the potential hazards of getting involved militarily in the region the first place. And despite all the cheerleading from Israel's Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman regarding regime change in Tehran, such a move would most likely box the US government into another no-win situation, as is the current US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan.

The primary charactarization of US foreign policy over the last 16 years has to be that of magical thinking, which had absolutely zero basis in reality, but the horrific costs, in American blood and money, have been all too real.

In looking at the corporate US-presstitute demonization I am seeing of both Russia and Iran, it looks as though President Trump is ultimately looking to wage wars against both these countries; I just hope he understands that our military cannot fight both at the same time, although that is what will happen if he attacks Iran, because Russia's mllitary and civilian leadership have long pledged to defend it if it is attacked militarily.

I would like to politely point out that as a result of assisting Syria against its jihadis, Russia has earned the envy of the world in terms of its weaponry, and how well it has functioned in real-world combat conditions; the US has the Lockheed-Martin F-35 to offer, which is still incapable of working as advertised, no matter how many billions of dollars the DOD has thrown at it.

The Occupied, Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika, at this moment the 21st century, has become a true rogue nation, and one that no nation in its collective right mind could possibly trust to keep its word; look at what President Trump has just done with the P5+1 agreement, as an example. The only way it seems to get its way, is through hubristic bellicosity, lies, and war, rather than hard-won, moral negotiations.

I would like to hope that the White House, Congress, State Department and Pentagon have the capability to think through their next moves in the in the Middle East through very thoroughly, and carefully; The next moves here, if not done with extreme care and caution, could well spark a Third World.

BOOM: THE CLINTONS, US URANIUM, PUTIN, AND THE FBI

Consider this plot line. Follow the bouncing ball.

Putin wants 20% of uranium on US soil. That 20% is already owned by a Canadian mining company.

The Canadian executives want to sell it to Putin.

But because uranium is a US “national security” product, various US federal agencies have to OK the deal. One of those agencies is the US State Department.

The State Department is headed up by Hillary Clinton. Her Department says yes to the uranium deal.

The kicker? Those Canadian mining executives, who wanted the sale to Putin to go through, donated millions to the Clinton Foundation.

Getting the picture?

On April 23, 2015, the NY Times ran a story under the headline: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real "Russian collusion" happened under President Obama's and Secretary of State Clinton's watch, and fattened the coffers of the Clinton Foundation (translation: the Clinton's personal fortune) immesurably.

For all the evil and destruction for this country in which both Clintons have been so intimately involved, there seems to be very little outrage,almost zero coverage by the corporate presstitues, and absolutely no consequences....until perhaps at this moment.

But the independent media needs to focus on this story like a lazer, to absolutely discredit anything coming out of the mouths of both Bill and Hillary Clinton for the rest of their miserable lives, and enabling the Democratic Party to come to the collective realisation that they are both live liabilities, to be shunned as though they had the plague.

Not getting heard, or not getting any air time from any outlet, ever again, because their credibility was completely smashed into smithereens, would be the most just form of punishment possible for these two; they will wither without the public spotlight in their faces, and a microphone in front of them.

PENTAGON USES NIGER AMBUSH TO BOLSTER AFRICOM MILITARY BUDGET

The October 4 ambush in Niger that killed four US Special Forces members forced the Pentagon to admit that they had been routinely carrying out ground patrols inside Niger, but African command (AFRICOM) may be cashing in on the incident.

With the revelation that there are US military operations ongoing in Niger and countless other countries, AFRICOM is noting that they’d requested a lot more military equipment than they got, and some of that might conceivably have come in handy during the ambush.

The US special forces were, after all, sent out in unarmored vehicles, with no air surveillance, and no way of evacuating if a problem happened. Instead of questioning why they sent troops into such dangerous circumstances in the first place, officials just say it proves they should’ve been given way more equipment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US military is in Niger for the same reasons the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika have military installations placed all over the world: to control iNiger's natural resources, and insure those resources are only sold for US dollars.

Natural resources of Niger: uranium, coal, iron ore, tin, phosphates, gold, molybdenum, gypsum, salt, petroleum

IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE NEXT 10 YEARS, STUDY SPAIN

Some of you may be confused as to why a U.S. citizen living in Colorado has become so completely obsessed with what’s going on in Spain. Bear with me, there’s a method to my madness.

I believe what’s currently happening in Spain represents a crucial microcosm for what we’ll see sweep across the entire planet over the next ten years. Some of you will want to have a discussion about who’s right and who’s wrong in this particular affair, but that’s besides the point. It doesn’t matter which side you favor, what matters is that Madrid/Catalonia is an example of the forces of centralization duking it out with forces of decentralization.

London Introduces Carbon “T-Charge” Tax On Diesel and Older Petrol Vehicles

By Aaron Kesel

As part of the plan to begin phasing out gas and diesel car sales over the next three decades, drivers of diesel vehicles and older petrol cars in the UK will now face a tax called T-Charge for driving into the financial district and parts of west London, Reuters reported.

Drivers are already charged 11.50 pounds ($15) under a congestion charge. But those driving petrol and diesel vehicles typically before 2006 will now need to pay an additional 10 pounds ($13.19). That means if you have an older vehicle before 2006 or a diesel vehicle you will be paying a total of 21.50 pounds or ($28.19) just to get into the city...

CATALAN SEPARATISTS PLAN HUMAN SHIELD, "CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE" TO BLOCK SPANISH TAKEOVER

If Spain hoped that Catalonia would willingly and cheerfully hand over control over the separatist region to Madrid after Rajoy announced on Saturday that the Spanish government will fire Catalan leaders and force new elections in 6 months, he may be disappointed. According to Bloomberg, Catalan separatists are "mobilizing a human shield" to block efforts by Spanish authorities to take control of the breakaway region as both sides prepare to escalate the political conflict beyond what may soon be a point of no return.

The dramatic Catalan action is in response to Rajoy's shocing announcement on Saturday, when he disclosed plans to clear out the entire separatist administration in Barcelona and take control of key institutions including public media and the regional police force, the Mossos d’Esquadra. Spain’s chief prosecutor said that if Puigdemont declares independence he would face as much as 30 years in jail and signaled that he could be arrested immediately.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get very nasty very quickly.

Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy has proven himself to be no friend of peaceful, quiet, and forthright negotiations with the Catalonians, and will introduce as much brute force in this process as he thinks he can get away with, in order to coerce Catalonian leadership away from their declared independence.

But I would like to politely suggest to his advisors in the Spanish government, that it should be prepared for this brutality against the Catalonian people to be seen around the world, 24/7, and the optics of such tactics are going to reek to high heaven, particularly when the first fatality happens, and I am almost willing to bet you that there will be fatalities, to break up this human sheild.

Medicaid Is A Scam

People getting MassHealth assume they are getting health insurance. In fact, if they are over 55, they are only getting a loan for health coverage which they must pay back from their estate (their home, their savings, their personal property) after they die. The process by which the state recovers the cost of your health care coverage is is called “estate recovery.” The low income people whom MassHealth is supposed to serve may thus be unable to leave the one thing they might have — their family home — to their children.

"IT COULD OPEN A PANDORA'S BOX": ITALY'S 2 RICHEST REGIONS ARE VOTING IN HISTORIC AUTONOMY REFERENDUMS

Voters in Italy's two wealthiest northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto are voting on Sunday in referendums for greater autonomy from Rome, in which a positive outcome could fan regional tensions in Europe at a time when neighboring Spain is cracking down to prevent Catalonia from breaking away.

Lombardy, which includes Milan, and Veneto, which houses the tourist powerhouse Venice, are home to around a quarter of Italy's population and account for 30% of Italy's economy, the Eurozone's third largest. Unlike Catalonia, the consultative votes are only the beginning of a process which could over time lead to powers being devolved from Rome. Also unlike Catalonia, which held an independence referendum on Oct. 1 despite it being ruled unconstitutional, the Italian referendums are within the law. Like Catalonia, however, Lombardy and Veneto complain they pay far more in taxes than they receive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a sense that the referendum will be overwhelmingly positive, and be a step toward more autonomy from Rome.

EU anti-trust investigators raid BMW headquarters in Munich

EU anti-trust regulators have raided the offices of automaker BMW in Munich, the company said, in a fresh blow to the German car industry already hit by the Dieselgate scandal.

The European Commission, which refused to confirm the company targeted, said it "can confirm that as of October 16, 2017 its officials carried out an unannounced inspection at the premises of a car manufacturer in Germany."

The inspection was related to "concerns that several German car manufacturers may have violated EU antitrust rules that prohibit cartels and restrictive business practices," a statement said.

The commission added that Daimler was cooperating with the commission and could accordingly offer the firm leniency in the case.

"The inspection is linked to complaints against five auto companies that were reported in the media last July," BMW said in a statement that confirmed the raids.

China to ‘Compel’ Saudi Arabia to Trade Oil in Yuan – Ending Petrodollar as World Reserve Currency

The jig is up for the NWO gang that murdered JFK back in 1963 and has run America into the ground ever since.Their day is ending!

This week, a leading economist predicted a major paradigm shift, as Carl Weinberg, chief economist and managing director at High Frequency Economics told CNBC that China will “compel” Saudi Arabia to abandon the petrodollar, and instead, begin trading oil in yuan—a move he says is likely to precipitate the rest of the oil market following suit and abandoning the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.

Weinberg noted that China is poised to clearly dominate the global landscape in terms of oil demand since surpassing the U.S. as the “biggest oil importer on the planet,” adding that Saudi Arabia will “pay attention to this because even as much as one or two years from now, Chinese demand will dwarf U.S. demand.”

Neocon Nikki Haley’s Anti-Iran Rage: Prelude to War?

Neocon Nikki Haley is Trump’s leading administration antagonist, notably on North Korea and Iran. Her hostile early September address on the Islamic Republic before the hawkish American Enterprise Institute preceded Trump’s decertification of the JCPOA nuclear deal – an international treaty the president defied by his action.

Haley’s address was a deplorable litany of beginning-to-end Big Lies. On Wednesday during a Security Council open debate on the Middle East, she was at it again.

Her remarks included a long laundry list of long ago discredited canards.

Washington, Israel, and its sinister AIPAC lobby resent Iranian sovereign independence, its military strength solely for defense – an obstacle to Israeli regional dominance, along with America’s presence.

Were Haley’s hostile Wednesday remarks prelude for initiating diabolical Trump administration plans ahead, including naked aggression against the country – nuclear deal decertification a starter for what’s to come?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sure that Haley's strongest qualifications for the job as Bimbobassador to the UN, was her unswavering, slavish affection for Israel, allowing her to believe that this country can do no wrong, and an absolute, nearly pathological inability to look at facts, and make intelligent conclusions from a review of the facts.

A thinking Ambassador to the UN would be loathe to be condemn both North Korea and Iran for trying to defend their countries, and would be condemning Israel's flagrant collective punishment of the Palestinians; unfortunately, that is not what we have in Ambassador Haley, and the world may suffer terribly from this.
