Basques protest in support of Catalan independence as crisis in Spain grows: Thousands take to streets of Bilbao to condemn arrests and takeover amid fears of resurgence of terror there and rising support for separatism in other regions

Thousands of Basque protesters took to the streets of Bilbao earlier today to support Catalonian independence.

Despite the rain, thousands of demonstrators waved Basque and Catalonian flags as Madrid judges have issued an European Arrest Warrant for the return of Catalonia's President Carles Puigdemont.

Members of the Catalonian leadership face up to 30 years in prison for their attempt to breakaway from Spain, which has seen several former government ministers arrested and taken to Madrid.

Why Was CIA Coup d’état Expert Ed Lansdale In Dealey Plaza When JFK Was Shot?

Col. L. Fletcher Prouty discusses photos of General Ed Lansdale in Dealey Plaza on November 22nd 1963. Ed Lansdale was a CIA agent whose cover title was that of an Air Force Colonel and later General, who worked directly for CIA Director Allen Dulles. Lansdale specialized in political-psychological warfare operations, and manipulation of governments. The photo of him in Dealey Plaza on November 22nd 1963 reveals a deep level of involvement with certain factions within the CIA in the planning, operational phase, cover story, and cover up of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22nd 1963. Such operations (Coup d’état) were Gen. Lansdale’s specialty.

Explosive Brazile Confession: Trump and Bernie Were Right, DNC Rigged Nomination For Hillary From the Start

Fire up the microwave and pop some popcorn; things are about to get really ugly inside the Democratic Party.

Throughout the primary election cycle last year, Bernie Sanders and his supporters angrily alleged that the DNC — supposedly a neutral arbiter — was actually in the tank for Hillary Clinton. This was denied up and down, with a top Hillary spokesman even wielding Bernie’s questions about party favoritism as an attack against him.

Washington Corruption Is Unparalleled In History – Paul Craig Roberts

This is a disservice not only to President Trump but also to the American people and the planet itself.

Dr. George Szamuely, a distinguished member of the Global Policy Institute of London Metropolitan University, is a British citizen and not a partisan of US politics. He has carefully investigated the so-called Russian dossier and reports that it was entirely the work of the Hillary Democrats.

This fact was known at the beginning both to former CIA director John Brennan and to former FBI director James Comey. Yet both went along with the DNC-invented story of Russian election hacking and Christopher Steele’s fake “dossier” on Trump’s imagined relations with Russians.

Mainstream media claims it’s a crime to investigate Hillary Clinton’s ties to Russia

Investigating queen Hillary is a crime?

As the public has finally began to realize the extent of the corruption surrounding Hillary Clinton, including the now infamous Russia Uranium One deal, the mainstream media has gone into hyper-drive to discredit and distract from documented facts and are now going as far as to float the idea that Trump may be committing a crime for simply investigation Clinton at all.

That’s right, in the sick world of the establishment media...

U.S. Bans Entry of South Korean Activists Opposed to Trump’s War on North Korea

Fourteen members of the Fellowship of South Korean Youth — calling themselves the “Ban Trump’s Crazy Action” (BTC) delegation — were stopped at Incheon airport on October 25 and prevented from boarding their planes to the United States, where they had planned to protest Trump’s war threats in Korea. The group, which had planned to visit New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles to demand an end to U.S. sanctions and war threats against North Korea, was turned away despite having acquired proper documentation to visit the United States.

The members of the delegation were told by the United Airline staff that there were problems with their visas. When the delegation asked for an explanation, they were told,

“You need to find out why from the U.S. Embassy in Seoul. Due to privacy concerns, we cannot release any information.”

Following their entry denial, the BTC delegation held a press briefing at Incheon Airport. One representative of the delegation stated,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF one knows tht one's potential actions are right, honorable, and true, concerning a potential war against a potential enemy, how do you treat kids like this with a difference of opinion?!?

The short answer is, you don't.

I don't know if the Trump administration was, at all, thinking about that, but the optics jhere are just really lousy; how in the world can this government be so terrified at protests from South Korean school kids?!?

The American Left: RIP – Paul Craig Roberts

The left, which formerly stood for “peace and bread,” today stands for Identity Politics and war.

Once upon a time the leftwing of the political spectrum was committed to the advancement of the working class and its protection from political and economic abuse by the owners of the means of production.

The American leftwing has been transmogrified and splintered into separate “victim groups”—women, racial minorities, homosexuals, transgendered.

The oppressors are no longer oligarchs who own the means of production.

The working class has been redefined as “the Trump deplorables.”The oppressor is the sexist, misogynist, homophobic, heterosexual, fascist, white supremacist male working class.

Catalonia’s Secession Dilemma Proves the State Will Not Respect The People’s Vote

By Derrick Broze

The Spanish government’s response to Catalan secession efforts should serve as a reminder that the State does not care about your vote.

Over the last few weeks we have seen a real-world historical drama unfold on the world’s stage. On October 1st the people of Catalonia, Spain held a referendum to put Catalan secession to an official vote. According to some reports as many as 43% of Catalans voted, with 90% of the votes coming in favor of seceding from Spain and becoming a new nation...

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.

John Brennan’s Police State USA – Mike Whitney

So it all started with Brennan, the resentful Intel chief who got his nose bloodied by Putin in Syria and decided to seek his revenge.

And, keep in mind, Washington’s Sunni proxies were not a division of the Pentagon; they were entirely a CIA confection: CIA recruited, CIA-armed, CIA-funded and CIA-trained. The defeat is not a loss for the US Military, but a blot on the record of CIA Director John Brennan, the architect and main proponent of the failed project to remove Assad. Brennan’s whole scheme has gone down in flames.

The Pentagon Wants Drone 'Swarms' to Support Infantry

In the near future, US Army and Marine Corps infantry squads could march into battle behind swarms of hundreds of flying and crawling drones.

At least, that's the plan. On October 12, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency—the Pentagon's fringe-science wing—asked robot-developers to submit ideas for tactics and technologies that could allow small infantry units to deploy swarms of 250 or more robots.

The swarms must function "in built-up areas up to eight city blocks in size over mission durations of up to six hours," according to Dr. Timothy Chung, the program manager.

Chung's Offensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics initiative—a.k.a, OFFSET—overlaps conceptually with a separate military effort to deploy large formations of small drones from fighter jets. OFFSET also dovetails with DARPA's Squad-X program, which is trying to outfit infantry squads with better communications, sensors, and weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why do I get the sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach that these weapons will be deployed domestically, before they are deployed internationally?!?

The American Military has plans for this country's future, if protests erumpt anywhere, and they are not pretty.

Pentagon plans for mass civil breakdown

Army Manual Outlines Plan to Kill Rioters

US military planning to put down domestic disturbances

The Police State is Here, If You Cannot See it, You are Asleep

US Has been preparing to turn
America into a military dictatorship

Pentagon Admits it has been planning for massive civil unrest

And please remember; the domestic terrorist organisation, ANTIFA, has promised brutal and violent riots around the country to (in their extreme lunatic fantasy) remove President Trump and Vice President Pence from office.

If you live in a densely populated urban area, you might want to think about getting out of town on the 4th of November, their dates for their riots, for the weekend. IF you do not, shelter in place, with lots of food, water, meds for yourselves, and your pets, and just not go out, because the risk may be too great to going out and get surrounded by this madness.

The #Resistance found its new power couple!

Former President George W. Bush discovered this week that all he had to do to make the media finally like him was take a rhetorical swing at Donald Trump.

And it didn’t hurt that he teamed up with Barack Obama to do it. The result was a media swoon. The New York Times crooned: “Without Saying ‘Trump,’ Bush and Obama Deliver Implicit Rebukes.”

Macbeth Does the Stations of the Cross

Shakespeare’s deepest message was one of hope.

Considered the darkest of all of Shakespeare’s plays, it is nonetheless replete with some of the most magnificent poetry and psychological insight penned by our Bard. It is a study in the genesis and evolution of evil: vaulting ambition and the slippery slope that leads to further acts of murder until its violent end, this play that begins and ends and is soaked throughout in blood.

Catalonia crisis: Spain moves to suspend autonomy

Spain is to start suspending Catalonia's autonomy from Saturday, as the region's leader threatens to declare independence.
The government said ministers would meet to activate Article 155 of the constitution, allowing it to take over running of the region.
Catalonia's leader said the region's parliament would vote on independence if Spain continued "repression".

A referendum outlawed by Spain was held earlier this month.
Of the 43% who voted, 90% were in favour of independence.
Some fear the latest moves could spark further unrest after mass demonstrations before and since the ballot on 1 October.

Spain's supreme court declared the vote illegal and said it violated the constitution, which describes the country as indivisible.
Article 155 of the constitution, which cemented democratic rule three years after the death of dictator General Francisco Franco in 1975, allows Madrid to impose direct rule in a crisis but it has never been invoked

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister Rajoy seems hell-bent on creating a 2nd civil war in Spain; one has to wonder if NATO troops will be sent to Calalonia as "peace keepers.", under these conditions.

The other thing Prime Minister Rajoy seems to utterly ignore are the optics of such a move.

Spain is a signatory to the UN Charter, and in the UN Charter is enshrined the right to peaceful self-determination. Rajoy needs to remember this, in crushing the Catalonian movement.

And if Prime Minister Rajoy is determined to suppress the heretofore peaceful Catalonian independence movement, does that not compel Spain to do a "Sprexit" from the UN on this issue?!?

Think it through, Prime Minister, think it through!!

Barzani's Failed Kurdistan Project: A Deathblow To The Partition Of Iraq And Syria

The project to divide Iraq was dealt a deathblow by a decision of the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi to send the Army and the security forces to recover all Iraqi territories controlled by the Kurds of Massoud Barzani. The Kurdish leader was riding the horse of Iraqi partition (in fact, a lame horse) to establish a Kurdish state in the northern part of the country. Following the failure of Barzani’s project in taking advantage of the fight against ISIS and therefore declaring his “state”, every country in the Middle East is abandoning him because no one likes to be associated with failure.

Barzani sent envoys (I personally met some) around the globe who returned with apparently promising results: “over 80 countries promised to recognise the new State of Kurdistan”. These promises turned out to be false (“no friends but the mountains”), other (existing) political alliances turned out to be stronger and Barzani was left alone with his empty promises and unreliable advisers.

Spain and Catalonia set for showdown over independence bid

Catalonia is facing an unprecedented move by Madrid to seek a suspension of the region's autonomy this morning, unless separatist leader Carles Puigdemont abandons his bid for independence

Mr Puigdemont, who sparked Spain's worst political crisis in decades by holding a banned independence referendum on October 1, has been ordered by Madrid to say by 10.00 am (9am BST) whether or not he is unilaterally declaring a split from Spain.

The government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy says it will trigger Article 155 of Spain's constitution - a measure that would allow it to start imposing direct rule over semi-autonomous Catalonia - unless Mr Puigdemont backs down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is settng the stage for a second Spanish civil war.

I very seriously doubt that Mr Puigdemont, and his brother and sister Catalonians, are going to back down here, and things could get very brutal, with a Spanish introduction of complete martial law in the area.

Kansas Teacher Barred from Employment for Supporting BDS

Barring longtime math teacher Esther Koontz from renewing her teaching contract, solely for her political beliefs, is a flagrant First Amendment violation.

She righteously supports BDS activism, wanting Israel held accountable for its high crimes against Palestinians.

Kansas House Bill 2409 prohibits state contracts with individuals critical of Israel’s agenda. In NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware Co. (1982), the Supreme Court unanimously ruled for the plaintiff against state authorities, cracking down on boycotts of white businesses, saying authority over economic relations doesn’t limit or deny political speech.

Koontz is a member of the Mennonite Church USA. In July, it voted to divest from US companies, profiting from Israel’s illegal occupation.

She supports Palestinian rights. Her employment papers require a declaration in writing of no support for BDS. She declined and was denied the right to train

US 'not taking sides' between Iraqi forces, Kurds: Trump

Washington is "not taking sides" following clashes between Iraqi forces and the country's Kurds, US President Donald Trump said Monday, as tensions escalate following the autonomous Kurdish region's independence referendum.

Speaking after Iraqi troops and tanks swept across the northern province capturing oil and military targets from the Kurds and seizing the governor's office in Kirkuk city, Trump made clear he was not going to inject himself into the dispute between two US allies in the fight against the Islamic State group.

"We're not taking sides, but we don't like the fact that they're clashing," Trump told journalists. "We've had for many years a very good relationship with the Kurds.

"We've also been on the side of Iraq," he said, "but we're not taking sides in that battle."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word here; you cannot wiggle out of your complicity, via your foreign policy in both Iraq and Syria, in creating this train wreck; please don't even try here, because it is making you look foolish.

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!!

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.

“Had the Iraqi forces kept moving for another 15 minutes, they would have hit the first red line, you could say, and would have been fired upon”>>>
***
The analyst was describing how Kurdish and Iraqi government forces after rushing troops and armour to the oil-rich city of Kirkuk, found themselves squaring off on Friday, sending political jitters across the region and beyond.

“We can’t turn on each other right now. We don’t want this to go to a shooting situation,” insisted US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis.

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.

WHY FRIDAY THE 13TH BECAME UNLUCKY – LEST WE FORGET (with related hilarious nsfw video)

...It was generally agreed that the charges were false, but...King Philip, who was already deeply in debt to the Templars from his war with the English, decided to seize upon the rumours ...as a way of freeing himself from his debts. At dawn on Friday, 13 October 1307 ...King Philip IV ordered de Molay and scores of other French Templars to be simultaneously arrested....Claims were made that... Templar ...recruits were forced to spit on the Cross, deny Christ, and engage in indecent kissing ...the order was said to have encouraged homosexual practices. The Templars were charged with numerous other offences such as financial corruption, fraud, and secrecy.

Some speculations regarding the accusations of homosexuality in addition to heresy: this was no doubt to seal their fate, since EVERY Catholic Priest knows intimately just how wrong these are...

Julian Assange on Roger Stone & Accusations About WikiLeaks and Trump Campaign Ties to Russia

Microsoft has joined Facebook in saying it is investigating whether Russian operatives paid for “inappropriate” pro-Trump ads on its Bing search engine and other platforms. Social media giant Facebook has said a Russian company placed thousands of ads on their network at a cost of more than $100,000, including some that targeted states crucial to Trump’s victory.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo has blasted Wikileaks as a hostile intelligence service that is often abetted by state actors like Russia, and Trump adviser Roger Stone declined to confirm to the House Intelligence Committee that he was directly in contact with WikiLeaks about damaging information on then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The basic claim of Russia meddling that has yet to be proved.

Burr’s statement is an example of “confirmation bias” which is the tendency to interpret information in a way that confirms one’s own preexisting beliefs. In this case, Burr and his co-chair, Senator Mark Warner have already accepted the findings of a hastily slapped-together Intelligence report that was the work of “hand-picked” analysts who were likely chosen to produce conclusions that jibed with a particular political agenda. In other words, the intelligence was fixed to fit the policy.
