Vladimir Putin Is The Only Leader The West Has — Paul Craig Roberts

Putin does not want war. He is doing everything in his power to avoid it.

The trip-point of World War III will be the installation of Washington’s missiles in Poland and Romania. As Putin recently made clear to the imbecilic Western journalists, these missiles can easily and secretly be changed from anti-ballistic missiles to nuclear attack missiles that can strike their Russian targets within 5 or fewer minutes of launch, thus depriving Russia of its retaliatory deterrent. Once these missiles are in place, Washington can issue orders to Russia.

Whatever the evil men and women in Washington who are gambling with the life of the planet think, Russia is not going to accept these missiles.

Brexit campaigner David Davis to lead Britain out of the EU in Theresa May’s new Cabinet

Mr Davis, a former Tory leadership rival to David Cameron, has described Brexit as one of the biggest issues facing Britain.

“The biggest issue over coming years will be managing Brexit, improving UK trade position, controlling borders and enhancing democracy,” Mr Davis tweeted last month.

Making trade deals with countries outside Europe should be a top priority.

“That needs vision, optimism, energy and drive – that is why I am backing @BorisJohnson for Conservative leader,” he added.

The Fall of the Bastille, 14 July 1789

Although the Bastille only had seven prisoners in it when it was liberated by the Parisian mob, the fall of the prison became a symbol of triumph over despotism. It also signified the end of the authority of Louis XVI, because he was no longer able to control the political tides of France.

Head of French police: France is on the brink of civil war

The internal terrorist threat in France is so urgent that the commander of the French security services has twice warned the French Parliament about the possibility of new terrorist attacks could trigger a civil war.

The chief of security, Patrick Calvar, is considered one of those in France with the best insight into the inner threat situation in the country, writes Le Figaro.

In connection with the violent terrorist attack on Friday 13 November last year, which led to the French government appointed a commission of inquiry, he stated behind closed doors in parliament this year that France "stands on the brink of civil war." He has also warned the Parliament's defense committee that if there are more terrorist attacks from Islamic ranks, the far right could exploit the situation to trigger a civil war.

US veterans on Chilcot: we need our own inquiry to avoid repeating mistakes

UK’s investigation into Iraq invasion is ‘example of what we could do with political courage’, says codirector of Iraq Veterans against the War.

Following the devastating British inquiry into the 2003 invasion of Iraq, American veterans and their families have warned that the US is liable to repeat the mistakes without a similarly comprehensive investigation.

The UK’s Chilcot inquiry was released on Wednesday, and while it is no secret in the US that the invasion was a failure, nothing so damning as the 2.6m-word British inquiry has been released by an independent US government body.

Chilcot and the End of the Anglosphere – Justin Raimondo

Bush’s poodle subordinated British sovereignty – and precipitated a disaster.

Do we really need a 2.6 million word report on how Bush’s poodle, a.k.a. former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, allowed his country to be pulled into a conflict that claimed hundreds of British lives, thousands of American lives, and at least 150,000 Iraqi lives, while plunging the entire region into a maelstrom of terroristic chaos?

A good decade after being announced, the Chilcot report has finally been released, and what it shows is that the phrase “Bush’s poodle” is blatantly unfair to poodles: after all, even a poodle is known to have gone off its leash every once in a while – but not Tony.

Merkel Urged to Temper NATO’s Belligerence

U.S. intelligence veterans are calling on German Chancellor Merkel to bring a needed dose of realism and restraint to the upcoming NATO conference, which risks escalating the dangerous new Cold War with Russia.

MEMORANDUM FOR: Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany

We longtime U.S. intelligence officers again wish to convey our concerns and cautions directly to you prior to a critically important NATO summit – the meeting that begins on July 8 in Warsaw. We were gratified to learn that our referenced memorandum reached you and your advisers before the NATO summit in Wales, and that others too learned of our initiative via the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, which published a full report on our memorandum on Sept. 4, the day that summit began.

Hillary Rebuffs Bernie’s Policy Demands

Eager to hold the political “center,” Hillary Clinton has budged little on Bernie Sanders’s policy proposals beyond nice-sounding platitudes, a strategy that could lead to clashes at the Democratic convention, says Lawrence Davidson.

Hillary Clinton has pursued the presidency for almost a decade with a tenacious determination. She almost achieved the nomination in 2008 only to lose to Barack Obama. That led to an eight-year stifling of this ambition.

Finally, in the long run-up to the 2016 election, she was convinced the nomination was hers.

Jeremy Corbyn gives #Chilcot statement

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”.

It’s unfortunate that he dignifies the evil Iraq war conspiracy by suggesting it had anything to do with policy of the British people. It was a private venture, pledged in secret, by a Labour prime minister and his closest henchmen, and backed by the Cabinet.

Jul 07 12:30

Iraq Verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

First and foremost it was not so much a foreign policy disaster as a flat-out war crime for which Blair as chief perpetrator must be tried. And so must his Cabinet, who carry collective responsibility.

There will be mega-trouble if heads don’t roll.

Israel ‘tampered’ with French PM’s cellphone — report

Israeli intelligence services allegedly hacked into French Prime Minister Manuel Valls’s cellphone during a diplomatic visit to Jerusalem in May, a French news magazine reported Thursday.

The report in L’Express claimed that Valls and his advisers were required by Israeli officials to turn over their cellphones and other electronic devices to security agents prior to a closed-door meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his Jerusalem office on May 23.

Afterward, several members of the diplomatic delegation noticed their devices — several phones and a laptop — were not working correctly and showed signs of “tampering,” according to the report.

French Citizens Rise Up In Their Millions To Protest Ruling Elite

France is in chaos once again as thousands of protesters swarm the streets in their millions in protest against the ruling class who they say are taking away their rights.

Trump Hammers On Brexit, “Independence Day” And Repudiation Of Rule By The Global Elite

One thing is clear, whether or not everyone will agree with what is said, Trump is at least speaking more directly than most politicians do

Globalists and Neocons Prove Incapable of Understanding Reality

If Trump wants to put America first, he needs to start firing the Neoconservatives and their lackeys from the White House and putting them on trial for making Americans look really bad.

Rather than listening and learning and modifying their actions, the ruling elites stick to “more of the same.” This process clearly emblematized by the endless procession of Bushes and Clintons replacing each other in the positions of power.

Holocaust-Denying French Professor Gets 1 Year in Prison

France’s highest court affirmed a one-year prison sentence for a professor who questioned the Holocaust’s veracity. The Court of Cassation rejected the appeal last week of Vincent Reynouard, who has since fled the country and is presumed escaped. It was the last of several appeals by Reynouard to the sentence imposed last year by a Caen court over a 2014 video in which he said the Holocaust may not have happened and called state commemorations of the deportation of French Jews ”manipulation of memory,” France 3 reported. Reynouard has lost his license to teach in the public education system over repeated Holocaust denials.

We WILL scrap Britain's deal to carry out border checks in Calais, says front runner for next French president

The front-runner to become the next French president has called for Britain's border checks in Calais to be scrapped.

Alain Juppe said it is 'logical' for checks to take place on UK soil now the country is leaving the EU.

The arrangements are underpinned by the Le Touquet agreement sealed between the Britain and France a decade ago to help cut illegal immigration.

There are fears that makeshift migrant camps similar to those the French side of the channel could spring up in Kent if the borders are shifted.

Well I don’t know why I came here tonight

Stuck in the middle with you.
Yes I’m stuck in the middle with you,

Losing control, yeah, I’m all over the place,

Victory Is Possible – Israel Shamir

Brexit is a game-changing event. Now Euro-sceptics all over Europe has got fresh wind in their sails.

Few people expected the positive outcome of Brexit referendum. Among other doubters, I expected the UK government will borrow a trick from the Clinton collection, and proclaim the "Bremain" hath it.

The political establishment of both leading parties, the Tories and Labour, wished to remain in the cosy lap of the EC. This was the will of the Bank of England, and of the City of London; of the powerful media lords, of the creative minority of yuppies, of cosmopolitan intellectuals.

Brexit vote is 'final nail in the coffin' for £18billion Hinkley Point nuclear power station plans, says energy expert

Dr Paul Dorfman, an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the Energy Institute, University College London, said EDF, a majority French-owned company, is 'extremely unlikely' to invest given the current economic climate.

The long-delayed project was due to have Hinkley Point power station producing 7 per cent of the UK's electricity by 2017. But, if built, the earliest date it could now start doing so is 2025.

Even that looks a remote possibility according to Dr Dorfman, who told MailOnline Brexit was 'the final nail in the coffin' for Hinkley Point.

He said: 'It gives everybody the chance to slip out without losing any more face.

'How is France going to invest in the UK if the UK is no longer part of the union?

'Not only that but the French nuclear industry has huge financial problems and unions are screaming that they don't want it [Hinkley Point].'

Italy's financial crisis could DESTROY the Euro as nation tipped to be next domino to fall

The country is facing a series of economic and political crises which could see it crash out of the eurozone just months after Britain rocked Brussels by backing Brexit.

Following the historic vote on Thursday, Italy’s top stock market saw its biggest ever one-day fall of 12 per cent, as traders rushed to dump financial stocks.

The carnage continued this week with shares in the nation's two biggest banks, UniCredit and Intesa Sanpaolo, falling by eight and more than 10 per cent respectively.

Investors are worried Italian banks could go under, thanks to billions of pounds worth of bad loans on their books.

They are estimated to have around £270billion of loans that could default and spark a financial crisis in Italy. Experts believe it could rip apart the eurozone.

French Cops Claim They’re Too Tired To Keep Policing Massive Protests

Months of mass demonstrations and violence linked to the Euro 2016 football tournament have left French police begging for mercy. A heated combination of protests against controversial changes to France’s employment laws and outbreaks of violence by Russian and British football fans has taken its toll, leading a union leader to beg for a reprieve for French law enforcement.

Protests opposing Francois Hollande’s proposals to relax France’s labour code began in March and have been called the largest and longest-lasting since the French Revolution. While the government argues the changes are crucial to lower unemployment, protesters claim they are bad for workers’ rights. Countrywide protests have included strikes and blockades of oil refineries and hundreds of fuel depots. Workers also downed tools at the state-owned rail company.

Hollande Facing Showdown as Labor Law Protesters Defy Demo Ban Threat

Francois Hollande - already the most unpopular French president on record - is facing a showdown with unions and students after they threatened to defy a ban on marching through Paris in a day of protests over reforms to France's labor laws.

France has been beset by protests since Hollande's Socialist government forced through changes to the strictly codified French labor laws — known as the Code du travail — in an effort to make it easier for employers to take on permanent staff and allows for more flexible working.

There have been rolling strikes for two months, affecting fuel refineries, fuel depots, the French railway, garbage collections, public services and educational establishments.

Robert Mundell, economist and "evil genius of the euro"

The idea that the euro has "failed" is dangerously naive. The euro is doing exactly what its progenitor – and the wealthy 1%-ers who adopted it – predicted and planned for it to do.

That progenitor is former University of Chicago economist Robert Mundell. The architect of "supply-side economics" is now a professor at Columbia University, but I knew him through his connection to my Chicago professor, Milton Friedman, back before Mundell's research on currencies and exchange rates had produced the blueprint for European monetary union and a common European currency.

Even France would LEAVE the ‘sad’ EU if it had a referendum, top French philosopher says

Bernard-Henri Lévi said the French would “probably” abandon the EU if they were given the chance.

The respected philosopher said the EU is clogged-up with bureaucrats who have over regulated everything to the point where there is no longer any room for “dreams or ideas”.

He said: “If there was a referendum in France, they would probably vote for Brexit.

“One of the problems of Europe – which is the explanation for this populist reaction like a Brexit – is that this Europe is not desired any longer. And it does not create desire. This is because the pattern it shows is so sad, so grey, so technical and so technocratic.”

Trump as the ‘Relative Peace Candidate’

The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.”

Hillary Clinton has shown no real remorse over her support for neocon “regime changes,” aggressive wars and belligerence toward Russia, leaving the oft-obnoxious Donald Trump as the relative peace candidate, says John V. Walsh.

Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum. Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgement of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative he poses to Hillary Clinton in the current electoral contest.

Paris Conference A Tired And Clichéd Failure

Matthew Duss is right. The Paris Peace Conference is different, and the fact
that the United States’ stronghold of supposedly trying to resolve conflicts
in the Middle East is being challenged, is a point worth noting. Yet, this is
hardly important. “The multilateral nature of the conference is a Palestinian
strategic victory, marking another step toward the internationalization of the
peace process,” Duss wrote in Tablet magazine.

"I’ve been to all the demos since March because I want to live in dignity, not just survive," Aurelien Boukelmoune, a 26-year-old technician, told AFP in Paris. "I want the reforms to be withdrawn, pure and simple. Only then will it stop. For the government's sake, they should withdraw the law, otherwise we'll block the economy."

Hillary Comes Out as the War Party Candidate

Choosing to speak in San Diego, home base of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, on a platform draped with 19 American flags and preceded by half an hour of military marching music, Hillary Clinton was certain of finding a friendly audience for her celebration of American “strength”, “values” and “exceptionalism”. Cheered on by a military audience, Hillary was already assuming the role to which she most ardently aspires: that of Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.

As usual, she goes for the military solution, ridiculing the notion of diplomacy.

A clear majority is opposed to “ever closer union” and wants powers returned to the French parliament, a finding that sits badly with the insistence by President Francois Hollande that “more Europe” is the answer to the EU’s woes.

“It is a protest against the elites,” said Professor Brigitte Granville, a French economist at Queen Mary University of London. “There are 5000 people in charge of everything in France. They are all linked by school and marriage, and they are tight.”

Hillary Clinton: Electing a Foreign Spy for President?

As Sherlock Holmes would say, “We are entering in deep waters, Watson”.

The executive leadership now faces the problem of how to deal with a traitor, who may be the Democratic Party nominee for US President. How do the executive leadership and intelligence agencies back a foreign spy for president, who has been deeply compromised and can be blackmailed? This may explain why the FBI, NSA, and CIA hesitate to press charges; hesitate to even seriously investigate, despite the obvious nature of her offenses. Most of all it explains why there is no indication of the identity of Secretary Clinton’s correspondents in the various reports so far available.

Did Clinton’s Emails Expose CIA Agents?

Even as Hillary Clinton closes in on the Democratic nomination, facts continue to emerge indicating that her sloppy email practices may have endangered secrets, including the identities of covert operatives, writes Peter Van Buren.

These are facts. You can look at the source documents yourself. This is not opinion, conjecture, or rumor. Hillary Clinton transmitted the names of American intelligence officials via her unclassified email.

From a series of Clinton emails, numerous names were redacted in the State Department releases with the classification code “B3 CIA PERS/ORG,” a highly specialized classification that means the information, if released, would violate the Central Intelligence Act of 1949 by exposing the names of CIA officials.

There are several lines of inquiry against Mme. Clinton:

(1) Did she work with, as yet unnamed, foreign governments and intelligence services to strengthen their positions and against the interest of the United States?

(2) Did she provide information on the operations and policy positions of various key US policymakers to competitors, adversaries or allies undermining the activities of military, intelligence and State Department officials?

(3) Did she seek to enhance her personal power within the US administration to push her aggressive policy of serial pre-emptive wars over and against veteran State Department and Pentagon officials who favored traditional diplomacy and less violent confrontation?

(4) Did she prepare a ‘covert team’, using foreign or dual national operative, to lay the groundwork for her bid for the presidency and her ultimate goal of supreme military and political power?

The French peace initiative 'emptied of all substance'

The French initiative, as it has come to be known, was first proposed by the Hollande government last year. In its original form, it consisted of a draft United Nations Security Council resolution that would set forth clear parameters for Israeli-Palestinian peace, along with mechanisms and a timeline for achieving them.

Faced with concerted US opposition and Israeli hostility , the Quai d'Orsay repeatedly watered down its terms and, concluding that US support for any such resolution would not be forthcoming as a matter of principle, ultimately chose to capitulate rather than stand its ground.

French MP: Sanctions should be imposed on Ukraine

Thierry Mariani, Member of the French National Assembly explained in an interview to Izvestiya newspaper that "first of all, anti-Russian sanctions should be lifted, the second, sanctions should be imposed on Ukraine. As Kiev currently demonstrates its disregard, not implementing the Minsk agreements. And the main responsibility lies on the Ukrainian party". Mariani also noted that resolution against anti-Russian sanctions, which will be considered in the Republic's Senate on 8 June, is very likely to be adopted. According to him, it will provide the French government with a definite signal even in case it continues official policy. As he said, "step by step regional and national parliaments wonder why the anti-Russian sanctions should be maintained to their own detriment. And what is happening in different parts of Europe evidences disagreement with official policy of the EU".
