‘Iran deal not a bargaining chip’: Trump proved US can break agreements at any time, Moscow says

The Russian Foreign Ministry has condemned Donald Trump’s refusal to adhere to the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, saying that the move poses a threat to international security and nuclear non-proliferation, and exposes the US as an unreliable partner.

BBC’s hissy fit over Brexit bias research PROVES it has something to hide

Let’s look at the evidence. I recently asked the Corporation for a list of every guest it invited to the Proms this summer. The answer was very revealing.

Bosses spent £19,020 entertaining dozens of luvvies and politicians.

And guess what? The vast majority of those treated to free drinks and a night at the Royal Albert Hall — courtesy of TV licence payers — were vocal defenders of the EU and prominent critics of Brexit.

They included Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, David Attenborough, Judi Dench, Tory politician Lord Patten, Financial Times editor Lionel Barber, Guardian ­editor Katharine Viner and ex-Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

Theresa May, Chancellor Philip ­Hammond and Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn — who all backed Remain — also accepted a free ticket and were hosted on separate nights in a private box by £450,000-a-year BBC director-general Lord Hall.

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.

Austria election RESULTS: Eurosceptic Sebastian Kurz declares VICTORY in nightmare for EU

SEBASTIAN Kurz has declared victory in the Austrian elections following the latest vote projections, which could see him form an alliance with the far-right in a crushing blow for the European Union (EU).

The People’s Party (OVP) got 31.6 per cent of the vote, according to exit polls from pollster SORA.

Mr Kurz's party is tough on migration, easy on taxes and widely Eurosceptic after rebranding itself over the last few months to propel its popularity in the wealthy Alpine nation.

The 31-year-old is expected to form a coalition with the right-wing populist Freedom Party (FPO), founded by a former SS officer, who got 26.9 per cent of the vote, according to the latest projections.

Harvey Clinton, I mean Bill Weinstein

Let’s see. Here are a few choice bits culled from dailywire.com:

In 1992, Hillary describes one of Bill’s women, Gennifer Flowers, as “some failed cabaret singer who doesn’t even have much of a résumé to fall back on.” She says, if given the chance to cross-examine Flowers in court, “I mean, I would crucify her.”

Hillary on Monica Lewinsky: “narcissistic loony toon.”

Hillary, while practicing as a lawyer, defends a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl. She wins the case. Then on tape, she’s caught saying, “He [her client] took a lie detector test. I had him take a polygraph, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs.” Then she breaks up laughing.

Hillary talking about Weinstein has the moral high ground of a dump truck unloading toxic chemicals in a landfill.

Macron said Trump “wants to get tougher with Iran. I told him I thought this was the wrong approach because we have to look at where we are now with North Korea.”

The approach of calls for fixing the Iran deal “seems to be a wrong way to follow as the existing documents are working quite efficiently,” he said of the deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

US Regime Change in Venezuela: The Truth Is Easy if You Follow the Money Trail. The Opposition is Pro-Washington, Not “Pro-Democracy”

Venezuela’s ongoing crisis is not driven by political ideology – it is not a battle of socialism versus capitalism or dictatorship versus democracy – it is the result of two centers of political power possessing opposing interests and colliding geopolitically.

The nation of Venezuela is currently under the control of Venezuelans who derive their support, wealth, and power from Venezuela itself – its people and its natural resource. This political order also receives aid and support from Venezuela’s economic and military partners both in the region and around the globe.

The opposition opposed to the current political order and seeking to supplant it represents foreign interests and more specifically, the United States and its European allies.

Microsoft faces Dutch crunch over Windows 10 private data slurp

Yet another European nation is turning up the heat on Microsoft for extracting heaps and heaps of telemetry and other intelligence from Windows 10 PCs.

This time, it's privacy authorities in the Netherlands who are calling out Redmond for its hog-wild harvesting of data from machines that run Windows 10 Home and Pro. The Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) said on Friday it will impose sanctions on Microsoft should the American tech giant fail to make changes to its software.

Of particular concern to the agency is the way Windows 10 collects and transmits user telemetry data, and the way it gets user consent to slurp their goodies. Essentially, we're told, the operating system does not make it clear what information is beamed back to headquarters and why, and the Dutch want this clarified and made obvious to punters.

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.

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!!

Magic mushrooms may 'reset' the brains of depressed patients, study shows

The active ingredient in magic mushrooms, psilocybin, may have a 'reset' effect on the brain that helps patients overcome depression, scientists have shown.

Many of the study participants voluntarily described a sense of their brains 'rebooting' after just two psilocybin experiences.

The psychoactive substance temporarily disintegrates the 'default mode network' which is a highly-connected set of brain regions that are particularly active during introspection and when we are under stress.

After psilocybin experiences, researchers at Imperial College London found that these areas of the brain reintegrated, became more stable, and that most participants felt immediate and continued relief from their depression.

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

Meanwhile, as if that isn’t bad enough, the FBI apparently needs 6 weeks to produce a measly 30 pages worth of records.

Muggings and beatings are becoming commonplace in the historic capital city, with passersby being attacked on almost a daily basis.

Noted Viennese viola player Michael Buchmann is one of the latest victims of the roaming gangs which are predominantly made-up of immigrants.

Government Lawyers Ask Judge To Block Release Of Comey Memos

Government lawyers want a federal judge to block the release of memos written by former FBI Director James Comey about his conversations with President Trump, claiming that disclosing the documents would be “detrimental” to an investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign as well as an ongoing obstruction of justice probe.

The attorneys made the argument in a court filing submitted late Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed for the Comey memos by several news organizations, including The Daily Caller News Foundation, CNN, and USA Today.

Saudi king phones Trump to thank him over Iran

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has telephoned Donald Trump, voicing appreciation for the aggressive speech that the US president delivered against Iran on Friday night, the official Saudi Press Agency reported.

Salman “affirmed the kingdom’s support and welcomed the firm strategy announced by Trump towards Iran and its aggressive activities and support for terrorism in the region and the world,” it cited the monarch as saying during the Saturday conversation.

Trump on Friday asked the US Treasury Department to impose further sanctions on “the entire” Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) for what he claimed was “its support for terrorism.”

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.

‘Cold creepiness’ – Assange on Clinton after she calls WikiLeaks ‘Russian intelligence subsidiary’

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has accused Hillary Clinton of “constant lying,” after the former US presidential candidate told Australia’s ABC TV that his organization was just a “subsidiary of Russian intelligence.”
There is “something wrong with Hillary Clinton,” Assange tweeted.

“It is not just her constant lying,” he wrote on Monday. “It is not just that she throws off menacing glares and seethes thwarted entitlement.

Harvey Weinstein Ousted From Motion Picture Academy

Hollywood’s de facto governing body, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, voted overwhelmingly on Saturday to “immediately expel” Harvey Weinstein, breaking with 90 years of precedent and turning one of the biggest Oscar players in history into a hall-of-fame pariah.

The academy’s 54-member board of governors made the decision at an emergency session after investigations by The New York Times and The New Yorker that revealed sexual harassment and rape allegations against him going back decades.

In a statement, the academy said the vote was “well in excess of the required two-thirds majority.”

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.

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.

The Craziest Documentary You'll Ever See

Imagine, if you will, a documentary on population control and resource restriction produced by the United Nations.

A documentary that opens with Rue McClanahan of "Golden Girls" fame pretending to be sexually aroused by the prospect of hundreds of world leaders cooped up in a UN conference room talking about the environment.

A documentary that illustrates a point about abortion-as-population-control by repeatedly and rapidly cross-cutting between a screaming, bloody newborn in the delivery room and a close-up of a gun barrel. (Gun shot. Screaming baby. Gun shot. Screaming baby. Gun shot. Screaming baby.)

A documentary featuring that renowned environmental crusader, John D. Rockefeller III, as an "expert" commentator on the dangers of overpopulation.

A documentary narrated by no less a personage than Perry Mason himself, Raymond Burr.

Iran deal working well, no need to fix it: Russia

A Russian deputy foreign minister says the international nuclear deal with Iran is working “quite efficiently” and requires no amendment, dismissing calls by the United States to address “flaws” in the deal.

Sergei Ryabkov told Russian news agency TASS that there was an American saying that goes “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.”

“That’s what I would like to address to the colleagues in the United States,” the Russian diplomat said.

The approach of calls for fixing the Iran deal “seems to be a wrong way to follow as the existing documents are working quite efficiently,” he said of the deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

According to the official, the state issued cryptocurrency cannot be mined and will be issued and controlled and maintained only by the authorities. The CryptoRubles can be exchanged for regular Rubles at any time, though if the holder is unable to explain where the CryptoRubles came from, a 13 percent tax will be levied. The same tax will be applied to any earned difference between the price of the purchase of the token and the price of the sale. Nikiforov said:

Report: President Trump Considering Sen. Tom Cotton For CIA DirectorNews

According to reports, President Donald Trump is considering replacing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. This means, of course, that Trump would need to find a new CIA head – and Sen. Tom Cotton is in the running.

According to a report from Axios, Cotton is being considered because he is “one of the few senators with an easy relationship with Trump.” Cotton talks to Trump a few times a week, and he even planted the seed for Trump’s new Iran policy. And like Trump, Cotton is not a career politician: a double Harvard graduate, he served in the Army’s 101st Airborne, with combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, for which he earned a Bronze Star. He then worked as a consultant at McKinsey and Co. before embarking on a political career in 2012.

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.

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 >>>
