THIRD WHEEL: TRUMP, PUTIN OR XI JINPING?

In recent years, relations between Russia and the US have deteriorated significantly reaching the level of the times of the Caribbean crisis. Washington openly declares that it considers Moscow to be the main threat, Russia also considers the United States a likely enemy. However, the chance to change the situation came after the meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Trump throws Iran fake bait while sanctions loom:

US President Donald Trump’s Iran policy has veered from pulling out of multilateral deals and making bellicose tweets to a shock offer of talks with Tehran, none of which are particularly effective, as Iranians brace for the start of US sanctions..

Just days before Washington re-imposes a first lot of sanctions against Tehran Monday following the US pullout from the Iran nuclear deal, the sabre rattling is reaching boiling point -- in cyberspace and, more alarmingly, the real world.

Russia Slams Leak Of Secret Memo On US-Moscow Cooperation in Syria

***
On Friday Reuters published a bombshell report based on a leaked US government memo revealing a secret deal possibly in the works between top Russian and American generals initiated by the Russian side last month during the very week that President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki .

Russia has since slammed the leak, but has confirmed it confidentially extended the hand of cooperation on Syria.

According to the Reuters report, Russia has used a closely guarded communications channel with America’s top general "to propose the two former Cold War foes cooperate to rebuild Syria and repatriate refugees to the war-torn country, according to a U.S. government memo."

Dozens Killed in Saudi airstrike on Fish Market, Hospital in Hodeida Yemen

US ‘Bears Full Responsibility’ For Deadly Airstrikes In Hodeida, Yemen Health Ministry says

The United States should be held accountable for Saudi-led airstrikes that hit a hospital and fish market, killing at least two dozen civilians in the Yemeni port, Health Ministry said as thousands protested the attack.
A spokesman for the Houthi-affiliated health ministry said on Friday that “the United States bears full responsibility” for the deadly attack, adding that “the United Nations, its organizations and the international community have remained silent in the face of the aggression” from the US-backed, Saudi-led coalition that invaded Yemen in 2015.

Giuliani: Protests in Iran Spearheaded by MKO Members

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, admitted that protests in Iran are not held spontaneously, but are stirred and led by members of Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group

Giuliani addressed a rally held by the MKO in Paris late in June in which he underlined the MKO's direct role in leading the protests in Iran.

"Those protests are not happening spontaneously," Guardian quoted him as saying at the time. “They are happening because of many of our people in Albania (which hosts an MeK compound) and many of our people here and throughout out the world.”

According to Guardian, most observers of Iranian politics say the MEK has minimal support in Iran and is widely hated for its use of violence and close links to Israeli intelligence.

Case for yanking Brennan's and Clapper's security clearances intensifies

According to this report from RealClearInvestigations' Lee Smith, intelligence officials are telling him that privately, they back President Trump on pulling the security clearances of connivers such as former CIA director John Brennan and former director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the pair of whom have used their clearances to undermine the Trump administration, and who are largely responsible for the corruption of intelligence.

Recently released satellite images showed clear signs of construction and significant improvement at major nuclear sites in North Korea, including a missile-manufacturing facility in the city of Hamhung and the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center, US press reported this week.

At the same time, unnamed US intelligence officials have been quoted as alleging North Korea of not willing to fully surrender its nuclear arsenal and trying to conceal its nuclear weapons and secret production facilities, citing newly obtained evidence. The new evidence has been collected after the historic summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12, when both sides reiterated their commitment to complete denuclearization on the Korean peninsula, US press reported.

CHINA SCORES WITH ASEAN PLAY AS TRUMP’S AMERICA LOSES ITS WAY IN SOUTH CHINA SEA

On March 12, 1947, as the spectre of Soviet communism loomed over the horizon of newly liberated Europe, President Harry Truman vowed that it would be the policy of the United States to “support free people who are resisting subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressure”. Three months after enunciating the Truman Doctrine, his secretary of state, George Marshall, launched a US$13.5 billion Economic Recovery Plan, better known as the Marshall Plan, to rebuild and revitalise war-torn Europe. The plan’s commitment totalled more than 5 per cent of the US’ 1948 GDP – about a trillion dollars in today’s value.

Seven decades on, President Donald Trump singled out China and Russia in his National Security Strategy as strategic threats to the US that are “determined to make economies less free and fair, grow their militaries, and control information and data to repress their societies and expand their influence.” Seven months later, on July 30, Trump’s Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo, unveiled a “new era in US economic commitment to the peace and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region” and, without a trace of embarrassment, resourced it to the tune of US$113 million.

ISIL has claimed responsibility of a majority of the terrorist operations conducted across Afghanistan, including some against the Taliban.

Democrat Senator Made A Jaw Dropping Admission About Impeachment

Hirono dove right into attacking Trump Jr. and Giuliani as liars declaring “I know that during his sessions with us, not just with our Judiciary Committee but the entire Trump family as far as I’m concerned has not been forthcoming and so at this point everybody’s credibility in my view is questionable. Clearly Giuliani’s credibility is shot, even as he goes ahead and attacks Michael Cohen who he said was a great guy not too long ago.”

Guilaini’s TV appearance breathed new life into the media’s collusion narrative.

Even though there is no evidence to substantiate this conspiracy theory, Giuliani allowed the press to present speculation as fact with his comments.

And it’s clear that no matter what happens, Hirono and other Democrats will grasp at whatever flimsy evidence or half baked conspiracy theories as a basis to impeach the President if they win control of the House and Senate in November.

Where were these objective defenders of the right to information when the state was collaborating with private corporations like Google, Twitter, and Facebook to alter and limit political speech and information?

Then, with a Charlie Champlin shuffle, moved off the podium before waving his hands dismissively at the audience.

The key take away from the BRICS summit in Johannesburg is that Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – important Global South players – strongly condemn unilateralism and protectionism.

Closer examination of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s speech unlocks some poignant details.

Xi, crucially, emphasizes delving further into “our strategic partnership.” That implies increased BRICS and Beyond BRICS multilateral trade, investment and economic and financial connectivity.

Trump’s Iraq: Why the President Wants War with Iran

This gaudy show of juvenile bullymanship is only the latest in a string of petty and dogged counter-intellectualism that has come to characterize a President who practically embodies “If it bleeds, it leads.” On the topic of American interventionism and a global democracy, Trump’s watery stance has seen him use Bush’s failure in Iraq as a campaign placard while also quietly stroking the dogs of war in response to Iraq’s wealthy and theocratic neighbors to the East. Trump’s blatant messages of unabashed aggression are similar in tone to those of every American President’s position (outside of Obama) when addressing Iran since the fall of the Shah. It brings a consistent and malignantly manufactured campaign of fear and mistrust with Iran that is striking in its uniformity of allegiance from both political ruling classes over the past century.

Erratic Empire Downfalling

***
First, a few words about America’s track. The imperialists of the US regime desperately cling to their empire, that’s a classic, that’s what imperialists do. The Nazis clung to their short-lived empire until Germany was in ruins, the Romans clung to theirs until defeated, and the British struggle during WW2 was far more about preserving theirs than it was about defeating Nazi Germany. Empires usually don’t dismantle themselves. But it’s also the American people, serfs to the empire, who are desperately clinging. That’s what I found so appalling about the Occupy movement. These millennial brats had no political agenda but to demand their cheap flat screens back from the banksters. They didn’t want change, they wanted continuity. The same is true for the so-called “alt-right” movement who have zero political agenda for a better future.>>>

Secret Meeting: NYTimes Publisher Warned Trump Against ‘Anti-Press Rhetoric’

The publisher of the New York Times, a newspaper that frequently criticizes the policies, actions and behavior of US President Donald Trump, acknowledged on Sunday that he met with POTUS on July 20 for an off-the-record conversation in which the media boss warned the American leader about the latter's ‘deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric.'

New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger warned Trump on July 20 that the president's consistent attacks on the news media — particularly in characterizing reporters and journalists as the "enemy of the people" — will contribute to increased threats of violence against those workers who exercise the right to free speech encoded into the US Constitution.

Although the July 20 meeting between Trump and Sulzberger was originally classified as off-the-record, a Sunday tweet by the president removed the necessity to honor the White House secrecy demand, according to the publisher, cited by the South China Morning Post (SCMP).

TEHRAN (FNA)- Washington should return to the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and the world powers and show respect in action before asking for bilateral talks, a senior advisor to the Iranian president said after US President Donald Trump voiced preparedness for unconditional face-to-face negotiations with his Iranian counterpart.

“Respecting the Iranian nation’s rights, reducing hostilities and returning to the nuclear deal are steps that can be taken to pave the bumpy road of talks between Iran and America,” Hamid Aboutalebi tweeted on Tuesday.

“Iran had shown its openness to dialogue in the past, particularly with the phone call between Rouhani and Trump's predecessor Barack Obama in 2013,” he added.

“That dialogue was based on the idea of confidence-building measures and the nuclear deal was an achievement of this effort and it must be accepted," Aboutalebi underlined.

His remarks came as Trump said on Monday he would “certainly meet” Iranian president Hassan Rouhani without preconditions>>>

US Intelligence Agencies Determine That North Korea Is Constructing New Missiles

The Madness Gripping Washington (To murder Iranians)

The United States and Israel have been threatening Iran for something like twenty years, using the pretext that it was developing a nuclear weapon initially, but also more recently declaring that Tehran has become a threat to the entire Middle East. Both contentions are essentially lies, concocted by an Israel and Saudi Arabia that would prefer to have Iran removed as a possible impediment to their own ambitions. And they would like the United States to do the removing.

US Considering Attacking Iran, With Saudi Forces Leading Strike

Is the United States preparing to attack Iran? On Friday, Defense Secretary James Mattis dismissed this idea as “fiction,” back when the sources were in the Australian military. Yet other US officials have since been quoted as saying the attack is still being considered.

The pretext for this war appears to be the ongoing Yemen War. Last week, Saudi state media claimed that Yemen’s Houthi rebels attacked and slightly damaged a Saudi oil tanker. The Saudis have previously alleged the Houthis are tied to Iran, and US media is treating this as some sort of transference, and reporting that Iran attacked the Saudi oil tanker, even though no one alleged that ever happened.

Since the US has spent years presenting oil security as a reason for war with Iran, they are considering using that excuse. Officials say that this would be mostly a Saudi-led attack, with Saudi Arabia and its allies doing the bulk of the fighting, and relying on the US for support.

All the President’s vermin: With Michael Cohen as personal attorney, Donald Trump needs no enemies

Just when it looked as though the witch hunt against Trump had dragged up every last speck of dirt on the mogul’s multifaceted life, along comes the US President’s personal attorney to prove just how ugly things can get.

One needn’t love, like, or even vaguely tolerate US President Donald Trump to admit that the latest broadside against his ship of state has been by far the cruelest and - to borrow a word that has been tossed around lately with great abandon – treasonous, at least as far as a lawyer betraying the trust of his long-term legal client is concerned.

Amid much hype and bombast, CNN this week aired a ‘secret’ audio recording of Trump discussing with his personal attorney Michael Cohen how they would purchase the rights to a Playboy model's story – bought by American Media in August 2016 – of an affair she had with Trump over a decade ago (no, not Stormy Daniels, of adult-film fame, but rather one Karen McDougal).

The Deep State's Absorption Of Donald Trump

The dust-up over NATO confirms, once again, that President Trump, unfortunately, has been absorbed by the same deep state whose existence he sometimes laments. After questioning here in the United States the usefulness of NATO, Trump traveled to a NATO meeting in Europe, where he flipped and declared his firm commitment to this Cold War anachronism, declaring publicly, “I believe in NATO” and publicly expressing his sentiment that NATO is “very unified, very strong, no problem.”

Let’s face the discomforting truth: Trump’s administration is just another four years of Bush-Obama.

Entering A 1984 World, Trump-Style

The pundits and politicians generally take it for granted that President Trump lacks a coherent foreign policy. They believe that he acts solely out of spite, caprice, and political opportunism -- lashing out at U.S. allies like Germany’s Angela Merkel and England’s Theresa May only to embrace authoritarian rulers like Russia’s Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. His instinctive rancor and impulsiveness seemed on full display during his recent trip to Europe, where he lambasted Merkel, undercut May, and then, in an extraordinary meeting with Putin, dismissed any concerns over Russian meddling in the 2016 American presidential election (before half-walking his own comments back).

Russian FM: Moscow Is Aware of US, Western Military Plans

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov revealed that Moscow knows what military actions Washington and its Western allies might be plotting against it.
“Our awareness of what plans the US and other Western countries’ militaries are nursing in relation to the Russian Federation is guaranteed,” Lavrov said on Monday, RT reported.

The US has been actively deploying its air-defense systems around the globe, including on Russia’s doorstep, in the Baltic states, and Japan. However, the country should not worry “no matter what happens in the world”, as its security is ensured, Lavrov stated, citing Russian President Vladimir Putin and new developments in the Russian Army.

Tokyo is planning to spend some $4.2 billion over the next 30 years to install and operate US radar systems on the new ground-based Aegis Ashore missile defense system.

US Sides With Russia In WTO National Security Case Against Ukraine

Both countries argue the WTO has no right to weigh in on the case Ukraine brought against the transit restrictions

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is siding with Russia in a potential landmark case over an issue that threatens to tear the World Trade Organization apart: What actions can countries take in the name of national security, even if it violates their WTO commitments?

The panel’s decision, expected later this year, could be consequential for a number of cases brought against the U.S. over President Donald Trump’s use of steel and aluminum tariffs.

However, the case involving Russia stems from a different type of action — namely, transit restrictions that Moscow imposed on Ukraine in January 2016 that cut off key markets in Central Asia and the Caucuses, which Ukrainian exporters can only reach by Russian roads. The move came amid continuing conflict between the two nations over Russia’s annexation of Crimea in March 2014 and a war in eastern Ukraine that’s now in its fifth year.

'No Matter What': US Poised to Deploy Space-Based Weapons by 2020 – Reports

In mid-June, US President Donald Trump ordered the country's Department of Defense to create the Space Force as the sixth branch of the US Armed Forces. He said that the goal is to outpace such nations as China and Russia.

The US House of Representatives has passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019, which specifically stipulates "the development and deployment of persistent space-based sensor architecture" by the end of 2022 to ensure the effectiveness of the country's missile defenses.

The 716 billion-dollar defense spending bill, in other words, will prompt the US military to work on new early warning satellites to destroy incoming ballistic missiles from space "no matter what" and even if "the [US] Missile Defense Agency argues against" all this, according to The Drive, a website.

Spaced Out: Trump’s Space Force Left Out of Congress’ 2019 Defense Budget Bill

US President Donald Trump might have said he was creating a Space Force in June, but it’s Congress’ job to actually do that, and the defense spending bill the US Congress agreed to on Monday doesn’t even include the term “space force,” much less allocate money for it.

What the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) bill agreed upon by a House-Senate conference committee does do is direct US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to "develop a space warfighting policy," Futurism noted July 25. (The bill passed the House Thursday; it must next pass the Senate before the president can sign it into law.)

Turkey vows to keep buying Iranian oil: 'We will not obey'

Turkey plans to keep purchasing Iranian oil in defiance of American sanctions on the rogue regime, according to the NATO ally’s top diplomat.

“We buy oil from Iran and we purchase it in proper conditions,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday. “What is the other option?”

Cavusoglu’s comments raise the specter of yet another clash between the U.S. and Turkey, which is also in the final stages of an arms deal with Russia that could trigger American sanctions. Turkish officials, in both cases, have dismissed the U.S.' threat of sanctions to constrain the choices of other countries.

White House: Trump Has Started ‘Mechanism’ for Pulling Security Clearances from ‘Certain Individuals’

President Donald Trump has started “the mechanism” for pulling security clearances from “certain individuals,” a White House aide revealed Tuesday.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters aboard Air Force One traveling to Joint Base Andrews in Camp Springs, Maryland, that the administration has begun taking the necessary steps to revoke access to classified information from former top intelligence officials but declined to get into specifics.

“What I can say is that the president finds it extremely inappropriate for somebody to go on television under the perception of legitimacy, integrity and level false and baseless claims against another person without any evidence whatsoever,” Gidley told the press gaggle. “He finds that to be somewhat troublesome and concerning, and so he has begun the mechanism to remove security clearances from certain individuals. The names were listed yesterday. And when we have a further announcement on that, we’ll give it to you.”
