TURKISH CLIENT PAID TRUMP ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN’S COMPANY “TENS OF THOUSANDS” OF DOLLARS FOR LOBBYING

DONALD TRUMP HAS repeatedly promised to “drain the swamp” of Washington corruption. The new ethics pledge he announced Wednesday would prohibit registered lobbyists from working for his transition team or administration.

But Trump’s supposed aversion to lobbyists has not harmed the fortunes of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, one of Trump’s earliest and most visible supporters, now a vice chair of the transition team and a rumored frontrunner for the influential post of national security adviser.

On election day, Flynn published an opinion piece for The Hill urging U.S. support for Turkey’s controversial strongman president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and pushing for the extradition of Erdogan’s political rival, Fethullah Gülen, who now resides in Pennsylvania.

The U.S. Remains Deeply Complicit in the War on Yemen

The atrocious U.S.-backed war on Yemen hasn’t ended. The New York Times reports on the use of U.S. weapons sold to the Saudi-led coalition to attack critical infrastructure and purely civilian targets:

But instead of defeating the rebels, the campaign has sunk into a grinding stalemate, systematically obliterating Yemen’s already bare-bones economy. The coalition has destroyed a wide variety of civilian targets that critics say have no clear link to the rebels.

It has hit hospitals and schools. It has destroyed bridges, power stations, poultry farms, a key seaport and factories that produce yogurt, tea, tissues, ceramics, Coca-Cola and potato chips. It has bombed weddings and a funeral.

The bombing campaign has exacerbated a humanitarian crisis in the Arab world’s poorest country, where cholera is spreading, millions of people are struggling to get enough food, and malnourished babies are overwhelming hospitals, according to the United Nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here, folks, is what your US government has enabled, and endorses in Yemen: massive starvation of Yemeni kids:

Horrifying images of starving children reveal the ongoing toll of Yemen’s forgotten war

No, folks, these images have not been photoshopped; this is the outcome President Obama, a father himself, thinks is a perfectly fine outcome for Yemeni children, death by starvation.

Are you angry yet?!? If not, you should be; enough to call your senators and congressional representatives-elect, and tell them, STOP THIS GENOCIDE!!

Gold Star family exiting plane to meet soldier's remains is booed by first class passengers

Perry, an ex-Marine who lives in Stockton, said the flight to Phoenix was 45 minutes late and the crew, fearing the Gold Star family could miss their connecting flight, made an announcement for passengers to remain seated to let a "special military family" deplane first.

Perry said several passengers in first class booed, complaining that it was "baloney" and that they paid first-class fares. He said he doesn't know if the passengers from Sacramento knew there was a Gold Star family on board or whether people sitting in the coach section complained.

"It was just disgusting behavior from people in first class; it was terrible to see," Perry said.

Perry, 30, and another American soldier died of injuries inflicted by an improvised explosive device Nov. 12 inside Bagram Airfield.

The husband and father of two young children died a hero, his father said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is truly a window on the mind set of the money junkies, traveling first-class.
They don't want to understand that all wars are economic, and it is our military who ultimately pay the price. All of you who read this blog know that I abhor war as a way for the US government to resolve its geopolitical differences.

But when our soldiers die, in this country's wars, and loved ones are attempting to collect what is left of them, dammit, be respectful!! That the first class passengers' response to a small delay was to boo the grieving family is so completely declasse', childish, and out of touch, one hardly knows where to begin.

But then again, that's the money junkies for you!!

F-35 May Never Be Ready for Combat

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program is the most expensive procurement program in Pentagon history. It’s been plagued by schedule delays, gross cost overruns, and a slew of underwhelming performance reviews. Last month the Air Force declared its variant “ready for combat,” and most press reports lauded this as a signal that the program had turned a corner. But a memo issued from the Pentagon’s top testing official, based largely upon the Air Force’s own test data, showed that the Air Force’s declaration was wildly premature.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That was obvious considering that the Air Force made that declaration when major systems of the F-35 are still not delivered, such as the software for the cannon, and other systems, like the helmet, not working.

FLASHBACK:Who's Advising Mitt Romney on Foreign Policy?

With Mitt Romney's comments on Libya drawing attention today-specifically, his criticism of Obama-it's worth examining whom Romney listens to on such matters.

Dan Senor is one of Romney's closest advisers on foreign policy.

Romney keeps a large group of foreign-policy advisers, eight of whom participated in the early neoconservative group Project for a New American Century think tank, founded in 1997 and headed by William Kristol, the Nation's Ari Berman reported in May. In the same month, The New York Times' Magazine's David Sanger reported on discontent within that big team, with some complaining that Romney only listens to Bolton.

US Wrapping Up Sale Of 104 Warplanes To Qatar, Kuwait

The US State Department has authorized the sale of 104 F-15 Strike Eagle and F/A-18 warplanes to Qatar and Kuwait, a move that Washington says is aimed at bolstering foreign policy interests.

With an estimated cost of $21.1 billion, the deal with Qatar would include 72 F-15s together with “weapons and related support, equipment, and training,” said the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency in a statement.

France wants coalition offensive for Raqqa

France has asked a U.S.-led coalition to launch an offensive to surround Daesh’s (ISIS) Syrian bastion of Raqqa in order to prevent movements of militants between Mosul and Raqqa, French government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said Friday.

RUSSIAN WARSHIPS PREPARE FOR LARGE-SCALE ASSAULT OFF SYRIAN COAST

On Saturday, a flotilla of Russian warships arrived off the coast of Syria. The flotilla was reportedly deployed to prepare for a large-scale land and sea assault on the ravaged city of Aleppo.

The flotilla is eight ships strong and led by Moscow’s only aircraft carrier. It is also being accompanied by a nuclear-powered missile cruiser. According to the Syrian website al-Masdar News, which the Telegraph advises is a pro-government source, the battle group is to be deployed to the region for at least six months.

Although NATO officials have said such a deployment by Russia is intended to demonstrate Moscow’s military might, the truth is that Russia is pressing on with its military operations in Syria whether or not the rest of the world is paying attention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is about to make mincemeat of the jihadists in Aleppo.

Unfortunately, these military actions will also take out trapped civilians as well.

Former US Intelligence Chief Admits Obama Took “Willful Decision” to Support ISIS Rise

If one was only to read mainstream news in the West, you would probably be inculcated with the myth that Islamic State (ISIS) appeared almost out of thin air and many governments in the Western world have been completely shocked by the rise of this terror group. Perhaps you would correctly blame the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq as a major reason why such extreme groups gained power in the region, in addition to blaming certain governments for supposedly marginalizing Sunni’s.

But what most mainstream readers will be miserably ignorant of is the fact that one of the main opposition groups fighting the Bashar al-Assad government in Syria has been ISIS itself, a group that has been trained, funded, aided and armed by NATO countries in collusion with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel (to name a few). This reality has been completely omitted in numerous corporate media publications, once again demonstrating the inept and deceptive nature of mainstream news.

Car spray-painted with anti-Trump graffiti, set on fire in SE Portland

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -
A car was spray-painted with anti-Donald Trump graffiti and then set on fire in southeast Portland.

A reward up to $1,000 is being offered to catch whoever did it.

The owner of the Ford Mustang, Jermaine Streeter, said he was out with friends and came back to find his car destroyed.

"They tagged my vehicle and burned it. You didn't have to torch my vehicle," said Streeter.

Streeter is a Marine and supports President-elect Donald Trump and had a sticker on his car to show it. He now hopes the people who tagged and burned his car are caught.

"I hope they serve some time and understand what it means to have something taken away from them that they worked hard to get.

US Condemns Nigerian Army Attack On Shia Muslims

In a statement published on Friday, US State Department spokesman John Kirby condemned the deadly assault perpetrated by the Nigerian government forces earlier this week, calling the carnage a “disproportionate response” of the police in the violence.

Dear President Trump: Just Say No to the Neocons

Tell Eliot Cohen to get lost.

For the central canon of the neocon creed has been and always will be a militant internationalism.

The kudzu vine is one of the most invasive plants in existence: you cut it back, but that just emboldens it! You dig it up, but it keeps returning, stronger than ever. It is, in short, the horticultural equivalent of the neoconservatives, who have survived in spite of leading us over a cliff in Iraq, being roundly repudiated by the voters in the last three presidential elections.

Pacifist White Poppies Make Record Sales As Red Flower Increasingly ‘Militarized’

The Peace Pledge Union (PPU) says many orders could not be fulfilled as more than 110,000 were bought in shops, cafes and online orders.

U.S. Navy Buys $800K Per-Round Projectiles For Its $4 Billion Warship

Back in May I reported on the latest boondoggle in development by the military-industrial complex: the USS Zumwalt. It is staggering even by the standards of a perpetually over-funded apparatus that evidently views the taxpayer with utter contempt.

The Navy’s USS Zumwalt is the lead player in a projected fleet of thirty-two, 610-foot warships that is the “largest and most technologically sophisticated destroyer” ever produced. At least that is prevailing tagline...

NY Times Attacks Trump's Twitter Account As Fake News While Lying About Ivanka

The NY Times openly lies about Donald Trump and Ivanka on Twitter while labeling his Twitter account as a media outlet being used to spread fake news.

Last night Donald Trump announced that Ford has reversed their decision to move Lincoln factories to Mexico but instead will work with the Trump administration to keep the factories and the jobs inside the United States.

Of course, this has sparked outrage in the liberal elitist media who immediately went to work claim Donal Trump is lying about the announcement even though it has been confirmed by Bloomberg and other news outlets.

In smearing the announcement, the NY Times attacked Donald Trump's Twitter account as being used as media outlet to spread this fake news.

The NY Times then went onto to spread lies about Ivanka being in charge of Trump's blind trust.

This was done to smear Trump by fabricating a conflict of interest because Trump's daughter attended yesterday's meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Dear President Trump: Just Say No to the Neocons

The kudzu vine is one of the most invasive plants in existence: you cut it back, but that just emboldens it! You dig it up, but it keeps returning, stronger than ever. It is, in short, the horticultural equivalent of the neoconservatives, who have survived in spite of leading us over a cliff in Iraq, being roundly repudiated by the voters in the last three presidential elections, and even being called out by President-elect Donald Trump in his April 27 foreign policy speech, in which he said:

“My goal is to establish a foreign policy that will endure for several generations. That’s why I also look and have to look for talented experts with approaches and practical ideas, rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect résumés but very little to brag about except responsibility for a long history of failed policies and continued losses at war. We have to look to new people.

Spy Chief Admits US Doesn’t Know How Wikileaks Got Hillary Emails

One more lie has been exposed as Fake news involving a Hillary Clinton lie that was supposedly fact checked and then echoed throughout the corporate media echo chamber.

It's part of a year long pattern of media lies which has resulted in corporate media news outlets losing nearly all of the public's trust.

Just a few weeks ago, Hillary and the democrats were running around blaming everything on the Russians and in the Presidential Debate she lied to the public stating the WikiLeaks emails shouldn't be trusted because they were hacked by Russia.

I had looked forward to this moment, only to find us all instantly embroiled in a new crisis. And unfortunately, it’s easy to foretell what, or rather who, will move into the bright lights of our collective gaze now: we’re going to (continue to) focus on… well, ourselves.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

TRUMP PICK FOR SECRETARY OF DEFENSE WANTS TO CONFRONT RUSSIA

For those who believe Donald Trump will put an end to decades of war and interventionism, consider his possible selection as secretary of defense. Senator Tom Cotton is a senator from Arkansas. He sits on the Armed Services Committee and is a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations. Cotton is considered a “hawk,” in other words, a neocon. Speaking at the Defense One Summit in Washington Thursday, Cotton said Trump will confront Russia. “I believe Donald Trump will be viewed, not just by Putin but by other world leaders, as taking a tougher line” against Russia, he said. Russia “has to have a new set of boundaries. They have to recognize that we are going to stand by our alliance structures,” according to the senator.

ISIS Brainwashed 400,000 Kids In Mosul To Fight, Carry Out Suicide Attacks

The jihadists are said to have been modifying school curricula for two years to “brainwash student children, force hatred onto them and oblige them to join [IS ranks],” according to the Commission’s media director, Jawad al-Shamri, as cited by Iraqi News.

McCain to Trump: Don't You Dare Make Peace with Russia!

Sit down. This is going to shock you. (Not). We reported yesterday on the telephone call between US president-elect Trump and Russian president Putin, where the current and future presidents discussed the need to set aside differences and look to more constructive future relations. With serious observers of this past year's increasing tensions between US and Russia openly worrying about a nuclear war breaking out, with some 300,000 NATO troops placed on Russia's border, with sanctions hurting average businesspersons on both sides, a normal person might look at the slight thaw in Cold War 2.0 as an early positive indicator of the end of the Obama Era.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) begs to differ.

In a blistering statement he released today responding to the Trump/Putin telephone call, Sen. McCain condemned any efforts by President-elect Trump to find common ground with Putin.

Disgraceful WaPo Anti-Putin Editorial

On November 15, neocon WaPo editors headlined “The United States is giving Putin the green light for atrocities,” saying:

Hours after Putin and Trump spoke by phone, “Russia and its Syrian allies launched a massive new bombing campaign against eastern Aleppo and other rebel-held territories.”

Fact: False! WaPo editors lied. No attack on Aleppo was launched so far. No “rebel-held areas” exist, only US-supported terrorist-infested ones.

WaPo: “There are no Islamic State forces in Aleppo, though Mr. Trump does not appear to be aware of that fact.”

Fact: There may or may not be. All anti-government forces in Syria are imported jihadist death squads. A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist, all of them, including ones masquerading as moderate rebels.

WaPo: “Mr. Putin’s evident aim is to support the Assad regime in a campaign to overrun the city, and perhaps other rebel-held areas, during the 2months of the US presidential transition.”

Can Trump find enough fresh thinkers to do the job?

Trump’s Slim Chance for Greatness. Donald Trump must decide – and decide quickly – whether he wants to be a great U.S. President or a robo-signature machine affixing his name to whatever legislation comes from congressional Republicans and a nodding figurehead acquiescing to more neoconservative foreign policy adventures.

Or, to put it in a vernacular that Trump might use, does he want to be “Paul Ryan’s bitch” on domestic policies? And does he want to surrender his foreign policy to the “wise guys” of Washington’s neocon establishment.

Clinton Promotes War While US Public Opinion Speaks To Anti-Militarist Populism

Castigating the US electorate as accomplices and facilitators of wars, or, at best, dismissing the voters as ignorant sheep-people (‘sheeple’) herded by political elites, describes a partial reality. Public opinion polls, even the polls overwhelmingly slanted toward the center-right, consistently describe a citizenry opposed to militarism and wars, past and present.

Both the Right and Left have failed to grasp the contradiction that defines US political life: Namely, the profound gap between the American public and the Washington elite on questions of war and peace within an electoral process that consistently leads to more militarism.

This is an analysis of the most recent US public opinion polls with regard to outcome of the recent elections. The essay concludes with a discussion of the deep-seated contradictions and proposes several ways in which these contradictions can be resolved.

Your Government Wants to Militarize Social Media to Influence Your Beliefs

A global conference of senior military and intelligence officials taking place in London this week reveals how governments increasingly view social media as “a new front in warfare” and a tool for the Armed Forces.

The overriding theme of the event is the need to exploit social media as a source of intelligence on civilian populations and enemies; as well as a propaganda medium to influence public opinion.

A report from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) last month revealed how a CIA-funded tool, Geofeedia, was already being used by police to conduct surveillance of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to monitor activists and protesters.

Although Facebook and Twitter both quickly revoked Geofeedia’s access to their social feeds, the conference proves that social media surveillance remains a rapidly growing industry with no regulatory oversight. And its biggest customers are our own governments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This means that all peace activists who abhor violence, and never advocate for it, must work more closely together to get the facts out, as honestly as humanly possible, so that people can make truly educated, critical-thinking informed decisions, when governments advocate for war, which governments (particularly that of the US Government), will consistently do for economic reasons.

Please consider WRH as your antidote to those who advocate for war and destruction.

As a Christian pacifist activist, the concept of this site as a "peacefeedia.com" site feels good to me; just the facts, peacefully, and powerfully presented.

Obama Tries to Cover Tracks by Ordering a Mop Up of Jabhat al-Nusra Leaders

But when Trump surprised everyone by winning the recent presidential election, the Obama administration has started covering up its criminal activities in the remaining 70 days before the new president is inaugurated. Thus, the group that was engaged in a number of fishy schemes of the neocons over the years has found itself in the “to be cleaned up” list.

Pentagon knows the location of every hiding that shelters terrorist leaders, as it has been been repeatedly stated by US officials, however those hidings remained undamaged for years. Before Trump got elected a single successful operation was carried out that actually resulted in a Jabhat al-Nusra commander being killed, but it remains unclear whether this operation was carried out by the Russians or the Americans, which leads us to the conclusion that Washington is more interested in propaganda wars than in actual struggle against terrorists.

Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield is Shielding What? Deconstructing Syria, Turkey’s illegal Invasion

Turkey, in a bid to legitimize its uninvited, illegal incursion into northern Syria, has created several media platforms specifically reporting on what it calls “Operation Euphrates Shield.”

Operation Euphrates Shield, according to official Turkish government statements, aims at “securing” a buffer zone in northern Syria spanning from the Euphrates river in the east and extending all the way to Azaz in the west. This is also coincidentally the exact same buffer zone US policy think tanks have called for since at least 2012 – specifically seeking Turkey to implement it.

Despite claims that Turkey’s actions are necessary to “stop” the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) and help end the deadly conflict raging in Syria, it is clear that instead, Turkey is carving out territory specifically to shelter militants fighting the Syrian government in an attempt to perpetuate, even expand the violence for as long and as extensively as possible.

BEX ALERT - Britain to deploy batteries of high precision long range missiles on Russian’s border for the first time since the Cold War 

Britain is to deploy batteries of high precision long range missiles on Russian’s border for the first time since the Cold War.

The long range rockets will be moved to Estonia next year amid fears Russian President Vladimir Putin could be planning to invade the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What a crock! Look back over the last 15 years and see who is invading whom! It isn't Russia! And don;t give me that crap about Russia "annexing" Crimea. Crimea VOTED to merge with Russia because they are fed up with western-style economic domination.

The war hawks are trying to get war with Russia start before Trump can take office!

Saudis Deliberately Targeting Civilian Infrastructure in Yemen War

Since the March 2015 Saudi invasion of Yemen, Saudi-coalition airstrikes have killed a preposterous number of civilian bystanders, and repeatedly hit places like schools and hospitals across the country. While the Saudis are forever downplaying such incidents, the reality of the Saudi air war is becoming increasingly apparent. It is a war not against the Shi’ite Houthi movement, but against Yemen’s population and economy.

Even sources like the New York Times are starting to take notice that this is less an anti-rebel campaign and instead a war of systematically obliterating Yemen’s already bare-bones economy, targeting anything and everything and claiming “suspicion” if asked about it.

Indeed, as much attention as blowing up a hospital gets, in many cases the more harmful strikes are against places like food processors and basic industries, whose destruction exacerbates chronic food shortages in the nation and ensures that any post-war reconstruction will be arduously slow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out that what the NYT is just beginning to wrap its collective editorial head around, WRH has been covering, in terms of these war crimes, almost from the inception of this US government enabled Saudi attack against Yemen.

And what has been the ultimate result of the Saudi naval blockade of Yemen?!?

I will show you now, and this stuff has not been photoshopped or altered in any way: Yemen's kids are starving to death, due to this blockade.

Images of Yemeni children, starving due to the Saudi naval blockade

Don't you DARE turn your eyes away from this horrific, US-government enabled war crime of starving children!

And apparently, our President, Barack Obama, a father himself, thinks that this horrific suffering, on the part of Yemen's kids, is a perfectly logical outcome of the Saudi attack against Yemen.

Would someone from the Nobel Prize Nominating Committee in Oslo, who has the "gonadal tissue" to do so, please rescind Obama's Nobel Peace Prize for allowing this to have happened?!?

Thank you very much.

Russia Puts Strategic Bombers On Combat Alert For Imminent Strikes On Syrian Targets

While America is busy pointing fingers at who exactly failed to predict the Trump presidency, Putin is taking advantage of the chaos and the immediate political power vacuum left in the aftermath of the stunning transition from the Democratic president to a Republican sweep.

First, as we reported last night, NATO promptly freaked out after Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov urged President-elect Donald Trump to begin rebuilding the U.S.-Kremlin relationship "by urging NATO to withdraw forces from the Russian border." Peskov told the Associated Press that such a move "would lead to a kind of detente in Europe."

TRUMP: DON’T FOLLOW THE BUSH-OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY LEGACY

Eight years ago, President Obama had a chance to change the warmongering direction that outgoing President Bush and the U.S. national-security establishment had led America for the previous eight years. Obama could have said, “Enough is enough. America has done enough killing and dying. I’m going to lead our country in a different direction — toward peace, prosperity, and harmony with the people of the world.” He could have ordered all U.S. troops in the Middle East and Afghanistan to return home. He could have ended U.S. involvement in the endless wars that Bush, the Pentagon, and the CIA spawned in that part of the world. He could have led America in a new direction.

Instead, Obama decided to stay Bush’s course, no doubt believing that he, unlike Bush, could win the endless wars that Bush had started. It was not to be. He chose to keep the national-security establishment embroiled in Afghanistan and Iraq. Death and destruction are Obama’s legacy, just as they were Bush’s.

NATO Panics As Putin Urges Trump To Force Alliance Withdrawal From Russian Border

While many in the media have speculated that the Kremlin had a hand in Wikileaks' procurement of hacked Podesta emails - something Julian Assange denied last week - and US intelligence services officially accused Russian government-supported hackers of interfering with the US election (providing zero proof for the allegation), the truth is that Vladimir Putin is delighted with the outcome from the US elections: not so much for Hillary's loss as that the sharp, neo-con wing in the Pentagon has been muted for the next four years.

There has never been a better-suited and more experienced President when it comes to these issues...

Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America, there are a lot of things he needs to do.

He has seen firsthand the unseemly underbelly of the various Deep State actors that have fought tooth and nail to both undermine and character assassinate him, as well as destroy him personally and professionally.

The Obama administration, through the CIA led by Saudi asset John Brennan, fed weapons, training and billions of dollarsto "moderate rebels". These then turned around (vid) and either gave the CIA gifts to al-Qaeda in Syria (aka Jabhat al Nusra) or joined it themselves. The scheme was no secret at all and Russia as well as Syria pointed this out several times. The Russian foreign Minister Lavrov negotiated with the U.S. secretary of State Kerry who promised to separate the "moderate rebels" from al-Qaeda. But Kerry never delivered. Instead he falsely accuse Russia of committing atrocities that never happened. The CIA kept the upper hand within the Obama administration and continued its nefarious plans.

HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY! FLASHBACK - Homeless Vet Forced From Shelter And Freezes To Death… Just Across Town ‘Refugees’ Get Free Housing And Food

This is what happens when bleeding heart liberals (is there any other kind?) decide that bringing in refugees is more important than addressing homelessness in their own nation. This happened in Sweden in early January. But it’s also happening here in America.

‘Refugees’ arriving in Sweden are plied with an endless list of entitlements, as seen in the video. But during the same time frame this family was getting free housing, a homeless Swedish vet froze to death.

The European ”humanitarian superpower” Sweden does its very best to please Muslim asylum seekers, by providing them with both food, clothing and shelter, but it seems the country’s own ethnic citizens in need are of less importance and forgotten.

VETERAN'S DAY - WALTER LEWIS SMITH

But as I think back on him, I know for a fact that he and the millions of others who served in all the various wars the United States became entangled in would be shocked and saddened to see that the government for which they sacrificed so much has become the very embodiment of all that they fought so hard against. No more First Amendment, warrantless spying on Americans, show trials, confessions extracted by torture, rigged elections; for this Walter gave up a lung?

So, this week, in between the sporting events and the barbecues, take a moment to look at the flag for what it used to represent rather than the globally hated symbol it has since become. Consider all those in your family who risked and sometimes lost all in America's wars, and decide for yourself how they would feel about the government of this nation as it exists today.

The 47% Who Voted For War Against Russia

Hillary Clinton on many occasions and consistently said that as President she would impose a no-fly zone over Syria, as she and President Obama had done in 2011 in Libya. She said this though Russian planes and missiles have been flying over Syria since 30 September 2015, at the invitation of the legitimate and universally recognized government of Syria, whereas the U.S. and its allies are only invaders in Syria and in that country would be killing not only Syrians but also Russians. (By contrast: Russian planes weren’t defending Muammar Gaddafi’s government.) She said this though America’s imposing a no-fly zone anywhere in Syria would mean the U.S. shooting down Russian planes and missiles, and Russia shooting down American planes and missiles, thus constituting the first-ever direct warfare between Russia and the United States.

The Fiction of “Fighting the Islamic State”, An Entity Created and Financed by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia

The German government and other governments in the West in conjunction with their mass media are giving the strong impression that arms transfers to the Iraqi Kurds is the only possibility to prevent the impending catastrophe. All the other short- and long-term alternatives have not even been taken into consideration. All indications put forward by experts regarding the dramatic consequences of military support of the Iraqi Kurds are being systematically ignored. Therefore, Western governments raise the suspicion that humanitarian motives to protect the Yazidis merely constitute a fabricated pretext to enforce their own interests.

US-controlled NATO has announced an unprecedented escalating of its aggressive encirclement of Russia with military assets and troops. Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg said in a statement that 300,000 troops have now been placed in a state of “high alert” in order to deter Russia who, according to NATO, has been “much more active in many different ways.” This new activity includes “Russia using propaganda in Europe among NATO allies,” which Stoltenberg says is “exactly the reason why NATO is responding […] with the biggest reinforcement of our collective defense since the end of the Cold War.” Adam Thomson, an outgoing representative to NATO, has estimated that the new 300,000 troops would be capable of deploying within 180 days, adding that speeding up the speed of deployment is of great importance.

Assad Adviser Says We Are In A Time That Will Determine The Future Of The World

By Brandon Turbeville

As the war in Syria continues to rage on, it is becoming more and more obvious that the battle taking place is about much more than Syria as a country. In this place, the cradle of civilization, there are now two warring ideologies. One that demands total fealty and the absence of all dissent, and one that believes a nation’s people should decide for themselves the direction of their country. One ideology wants to force its hegemonic world system upon all other nations, and the other contends that nations should choose their own direction.

This is not to argue perfection on the part of Syria or Russia by any means. But it is a reality nonetheless...

Russian Navy will hit ISIS targets in Aleppo with cruise missiles within 24 hours as Putin moves to strike while US focusses on Presidential election 

The Russian navy is planning a massive attack on Aleppo within the next 24 hours, according to a Ministry of Defence source.
A group of ships including an aircraft carrier, a nuclear power guided missile cruiser and two destroyers is reportedly ready to strike from the Mediterranean Sea.
But the Russian source insisted the missiles will aim for areas surrounding Aleppo to avoid harming the 200,000 civilians still living there.

The source added that the details of the strike are still being finalised as they navy zeros in on exact targets around the Syrian city.
The strikes could apparently include Kalibr cruise missiles, launched from a submarine.

It comes on the day of the US election, after American officials have condemned Russia's bombing campaign in Syria.

Secretary of state John Kerry has called on Russia, which supports dictator Bashar-al-Assad against rebel groups, to stop bombing civilians in what he described as the 'largest of humanitarian disasters'.

India’s crackdown in Kashmir: is this the world’s first mass blinding?

For the past month, while the attention of the world has been fixed on every dramatic twist in the US presidential election, the renewal of armed conflict between India and Pakistan has barely touched the headlines. In the past few weeks, the two nuclear states have, between them, killed two dozen civilians and injured scores of others in exchanges of artillery fire across the disputed border – known as the “line of control” – that divides Kashmir into parts controlled by India and Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This use of blinding pellets by the Indian military makes me utterly ill.

I think that the Kashmiris, cheated of the referendum to decide whether they want to stay with India; join Pakistan; or become independent, may come to the point of choosing civil war here, because there is absolutely no reasonable alternative left to them by the Indian government, and that is a crying shame.

Officially, the US is providing air support, as well as “assisting and training” by special forces to the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who are spearheading the offensive on the Daesh stronghold. The SDF comprise about 30,000 local fighters, 20,000 of whom are Kurdish and the rest Sunni Arab militants.

It is also reported that British and French warplanes are involved in the US-led coalition operation to take Raqqa.

ANOTHER U.S. MASSACRE IN AFGHANISTAN

The latest massacre of many innocent people by U.S. forces in Afghanistan provides another demonstration as to why it is imperative that the American people stop deferring to the authority of the national security state and demand the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

In a war that has now gone on for 16 years, U.S. forces just killed at least 32 more civilians, many of whom were children. Another 25 people were wounded. Of course, this is on top of all the wedding parties, hospitals, and other victims of U.S. bombing attacks that have brought the death toll from U.S. interventionism in Afghanistan to more than 200,000, not to mention the wounded, maimed, homeless, and refugees. In the last seven days alone, 95 civilians have been killed in Afghanistan and 111 injured.

How many of those 30 people, including the children, who are now being buried had anything to do with the 9/11 attacks? It is a virtual certainty that none of them did.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country murders innocents abroad with impunity, for economic goals, and then some supremely dim Americans wonder why foreign countries don't particularly like us.

It's the murders, stupid!!

But were I a betting woman, I would be willing to bet that the US will NEVER leave Afghanistan.

And why?!?

Because of the massive profit in the opium trade, which various US "alphabet soup" agencies love to use for off-the-books operations they could never get funded by Congress. As reported this October at thefiscaltimes.com:

America is losing a war in Afghanistan, and the casualties are on the streets at home. With a heroin epidemic killing more than 10,000 Americans a year, a new UN report says the production of opium – the raw material of heroin – is up 43 percent in 2016 in Afghanistan.

But you have to understand; the US government is losing the war on drugs on purpose.

As reported at americanfreepress.com in March of 2014:

Across the U.S., heroin use has skyrocketed. But how are these drugs getting into the country, and is the CIA back to its old tricks, using drugs money to fund covert operations? By Victor Thorn — The tragic overdose death of Academy Award winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman on February 2, brought renewed interest to the subject of cheap heroin on America’s streets. Across the country, heroin use is on the rise, despite the billions of dollars spent by United States law enforcement fighting it. Recently, southwestern Pennsylvania suffered 22 overdoses in little more than a week’s time from tainted heroin, and dozens of users were hospitalized in Camden, New Jersey due to a highly potent batch that was being sold on the streets of that city. One of the big questions asked by naïve media talking heads is: Where does all of this heroin come from? The answer is the same as it was a decade ago following a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-led invasion of Afghanistan: 75%-80% of the world’s heroin is exported from Afghanistan. In spite of the fact that the U.S. military controls a great deal of that mountainous country, production levels hit record highs last year. Since American forces have been entrenched in Afghanistan for a dozen years and have squandered over $700B to date, AMERICAN FREE PRESS has long been one of the few publications to openly address a highly taboo subject. Namely, elements within the CIA having been heavily involved with illegal narcotics trafficking since the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s and Iran-Contra in the 1980s. On March 13, this reporter contacted investigative historian Robert Morrow, whose research into the murder of CIA-sanctioned pilot Barry Seal is unparalleled. Seal claims to have run drugs for U.S. intelligence. When asked about official criminality associated with Afghan’s opium business, Morrow replied: “U.S. government involvement in the drug trade ebbs and flows depending on a particular administration’s level of corruption. If a Bush or Clinton is in office, you better believe it’s rip-roaring.” Morrow provided more insights. “Or, maybe their complicity is so institutionalized that presidents don’t even control it. Intelligence agencies and the military do. The government has many faces. One DEA [Drug Enforcement Administration] agent could be entirely honest while another is on the take from drug cartels and the government.” Delving into deep state secrets, Morrow stressed: “The people who ran all the drugs into America during the Iran-Contra era were George Bush, Sr., CIA Director William Casey, Oliver North and both Clintons. Airports like the one in Mena, Arkansas that Bill and Hillary operated stretched all across the southern U.S. You need to remember that Barry Seal [who allegedly flew more cocaine into America than any pilot in history] was personal friends with Bill Clinton. He also spoke with Bush, Sr. on a weekly basis.” Morrow turned his attention to Clinton’s partner-in-crime. “As Vice President, George Bush, Sr. had all aspects of law enforcement answering to him,” said Murrow. “That way, legitimate police officers weren’t arresting his CIA drug dealers.” Ending on a riveting note, Morrow said: “These topics aren’t expressed in the mainstream media because it would be detrimental to the government’s credibility. Nobody is supposed to know that certain elements running our country are drug dealers, murderers and thugs.”

So the reality in the US is that the biggest drug deal in the country...IS THE COUNTRY!!

Defense Secretary Ash Carter, delivering a speech at Strategic Command headquarters, has ratcheted up ongoing Pentagon calls for massive spending increases, particularly on the creation of new modern nuclear weapons, claiming the current arsenal is becoming “antiquated.”

Carter rattled off a list of potential nuclear “foes,” including Russia, China, North Korea, India, Pakistan, and Iran, insisting that while the US had “under-invested” in nuclear arms all those nations “consistently invested” in such weapons.

The Pentagon has been talking up this modernization scheme for years, and the estimated price tag has continued to rise precipitously throughout, with the plan likely to be well in excess of $1 trillion when all is said and done. Carter, like other Pentagon officials, mostly ignored the cost in his comments, insisting the program is vital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in thenation.com one year ago last September:

 Start with this simple fact: the production, maintenance, and modernization of nuclear weapons are sources of super profits for what is, in essence, a cartel. They, of course, encounter no competition for contracts from offshore competitors, given that it’s the US nuclear arsenal we’re talking about, and the government contracts offered are screened from critical auditing under the guise of national security. Furthermore, the business model employed is “cost-plus,” which means that no matter how high cost overruns may be compared to original bids, contractors receive a guaranteed profit percentage above their costs. High profits are effectively guaranteed, no matter how inefficient or over-budget the project may become. In other words, there is no possibility of contractors losing money on their work, no matter how inefficient they may be (a far cry from a corporate free-market model of production). Those well-protected profits and the firms raking them in have become a major factor in the promotion of nuclear weapons development, undermining any efforts at nuclear disarmament of almost any sort. Part of this process should be familiar indeed, since it’s an extension of a classic Pentagon formula that Columbia University industrial economist Seymour Melman once described so strikingly in his books and articles, a formula that infamously produced $436 hammers and $6,322 coffee makers. Given the process and the profits, the weapons contractors have a vested interest in ensuring that the American public has a heightened sense of danger and insecurity (even as they themselves have become a leading source of such danger and insecurity). Recently, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) produced a striking report, “Don’t Bank on the Bomb,” documenting the major corporate contractors and their investors who will reap those mega-profits from the coming nuclear weapons upgrades. Given the penumbra of national security that envelops the country’s nuclear weapons programs, authentic audits of the contracts of these companies are not available to the public. However, at least the major corporations profiting from nuclear weapons contracts can now be identified. In the area of nuclear delivery systems—bombers, missiles, and submarines—these include a series of familiar corporate names: Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, GenCorp Aerojet, Huntington Ingalls, and Lockheed Martin. In other areas like nuclear design and production, the names at the top of the list will be less well known: Babcock & Wilcox, Bechtel, Honeywell International, and URS Corporation. When it comes to nuclear weapons testing and maintenance, contractors include Aecom, Flour, Jacobs Engineering, and SAIC; missile targeting and guidance firms include Alliant Techsystems and Rockwell Collins. To give a small sampling of the contracts: In 2014, Babcock & Wilcox was awarded $76.8 million for work on upgrading the Ohio class submarines. In January 2013, General Dynamics Electric Boat Division was awarded a $4.6 billion contract to design and develop a next-generation strategic deterrent submarine. More of what is known of such corporate weapons contracts can be found in the ICAN Report, which also identified banks and other financial institutions investing in the nuclear weapons corporations. Many Americans are unaware that much of the responsibility for nuclear weapons development, production, and maintenance lies not with the Pentagon but the Department of Energy (DOE), which spends more on nuclear weapons than it does on developing sustainable energy sources.

The process, as it stands now, for American nuclear weapons procurement, is dangerous for our men and women in uniform, because there is no real oversight, on either quality, or costs.

And if the US government had any clue as to the power of true, honest diplomacy, these weapons would never be used, period, end of discussion.

US Navy To Cancel Newest Warship Ammunition Costing $800,000 Per Round – Report

The US Navy’s newest warship is designed to carry two huge guns that can hit targets 80 miles away – but although that may sound impressive, the Navy has now decided that the necessary ammunition is too expensive.

The Long Range Land-Attack Projectile (LRLAP) is a guided munition capable of hitting targets in “urban canyons of coastal cities with minimal collateral damage,” manufacturer Lockheed Martin said.

NATO puts 300,000 troops on ‘HIGH ALERT’ amid fears of all out confrontation with Russia

Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, said the allied nations are putting hundreds of thousands of troops in a state of high alert in an effort to deter a mounting threat from Moscow.

While NATO cut its defence budget and military investment since the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia has been bolstering its military capabilities, holding parades involving more than 100,000 troops each year.

Mr Stoltenberg said: “We have seen Russia being much more active in many different ways.

“We have seen a more assertive Russia implementing a substantial military build-up over many years; tripling defence spending since 2000 in real terms; developing new military capabilities; exercising their forces and using military force against neighbours.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg, if you are plunging into an absolutely reckless war posture, and beginning World War III in the process, can you AT LEAST, please, give the world some specifics about why this is necessary NOW?!?!?

The short answer is that you cannot, because you have none!!!

Russia is not the problem here; NATO'S, and the US's deployment of troops and weapons, encircling Russia, is the problem.

And please, don't whine and moan about Russia's evolving military hardware and software, because NATO's equipment cannot match it; find your supply chain problem, and get it fixed!!

In other articles I have read on this, the goal is to be able to get this 300,000-strong troop mobilised in 60 days.


60 days from now is right before the inauguration of the next US President.

I find it impossible to believe that the timing here is accidental; it is either to give Clinton the war against Russia after which she lusts so badly, or "gift" Donald Trump with a war which will be horrifically difficult to stop, once it gets going.

NYT ADMITS KEY AL QAEDA ROLE IN ALEPPO

As much as The New York Times and the mainstream U.S. media have become propaganda outlets on most foreign policy issues, like the one-sided coverage of the bloody Syrian war, sometimes the truth seeps through in on-the-ground reporting by correspondents, even ones who usually are pushing the “propo.”

Such was the case with Anne Barnard’s new reporting from inside west Aleppo, the major portion of the city which is in government hands and copes with regular terror rocket and mortar attacks from rebel-held east Aleppo where Al Qaeda militants and U.S.-armed-and-funded “moderate” rebels fight side-by-side.

As much as The New York Times and the mainstream U.S. media have become propaganda outlets on most foreign policy issues, like the one-sided coverage of the bloody Syrian war, sometimes the truth seeps through in on-the-ground reporting by correspondents, even ones who usually are pushing the “propo.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bottom line here is that Russia is supporting the Al-Assad government in Syria, while the US government is using any means necessary to instigate regime change, including the support of Al-Qaeda, and al-Nusra, no matter how many more lives such support may claim.

Also, as reported at blacklistednews.com today:

Even as Syria and Russia threatened an all-out assault on the rebel side of Aleppo, saying Friday was the last chance for people there to exit, they had been unable to put down a counteroffensive by a mix of Qaeda-linked and United States-backed insurgent groups.

By the US government's support of these groups, as evidenced by the actions of their proxies, it is painfully clear this has utterly NOTHING to do with "humanitarian aid for the Syrian people"; this is all about controlling Syria's resources; ultimately insuring that they are sold only in US dollars, and removing one of Iran's most stalwart supporters in the region.

DNC HACK: A COLD WAR 2.0 FALSE FLAG

If elected this week Hillary Clinton will turn up the heat on brinkmanship with Russia. Democrats insist Russia is behind the DNC hack—never mind evidence, there is none—and Obama has directed the CIA to launch a cyber attack on Russia.

The CIA’s RadioFreeEurope and RadioLiberty claim a Russian hacker group has taken responsibility for the October 21 internet outage in the United States, Europe, and Asia. (For more on the CIA’s Radio Free Europe, see: Persuasion, Propaganda, and Radio Free Europe: The New Archive).

New World Hackers claimed responsibility for the attack via Twitter, though U.S. authorities said they could not verify the claim. They said they organized networks of "zombie" computers to throw 1.2 terabits per second of data at servers managed by Dyn Inc.
VP Joe Biden said publicly Russia is behind the attacks.

Russia has denied it is hacking the US election and is preparing for the promised US attack after the election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please keep in mind that for President Obama, "proportional response" is what he thinks he can do legally when he orders extrajudicial assassinations!!!

“HISTORY OFFERS EVEN MORE SOBERING WARNINGS: ARMED CONFRONTATION USUALLY OCCURS AROUND THE CLIMAX OF CRISIS. IF THERE IS CONFRONTATION, IT IS LIKELY TO LEAD TO WAR.

IF THERE IS WAR, IT IS LIKELY TO CULMINATE IN TOTAL WAR, FOUGHT UNTIL THE LOSING SIDE HAS BEEN RENDERED NIL – ITS WILL BROKEN, TERRITORY TAKEN, AND LEADERS CAPTURED.” – THE FOURTH TURNING – STRAUSS & HOWE -1997

As we enter the final stretch of this vitriolic, deplorable, venomous, propaganda saturated, deceitful, rigged presidential election spectacle, it becomes painfully obvious this Fourth Turning is careening toward bloodshed, bedlam, confrontation, and civil war.

A Digital 9/11 If Trump Wins

Brace yourselves folks. The Globalists are trembling in their boots.

It is a green light for a coup d’état by the Deep State forces who found that they could not win through the “normal” rigging methods.

There are disturbing signs that a digital 9/11 terror attack is being readied for election day in the US to ensure that Donald Trump does not win.

Such an attack – involving widespread internet and power outage – would have nothing to do with Russia or any other foreign state. It would be furnished by agencies of the US Deep State in a classic “false flag” covert manner. But the resulting chaos and “assault on American democracy” will be conveniently blamed on Russia.

THE OIL-GAS WAR OVER SYRIA, IN MAPS

Turkey’s Anadolu News Agency, though government-run, is providing remarkably clear and reliable diagrammatic descriptions of the current status of the U.S-and-fundamentalist-Sunni, versus Russia-and-Shia-and-NON-fundamentalist-Sunni, sides, in the current oil-and-gas war in the Middle East, for control over territory in Syria, for construction of oil-and-gas pipelines through Syria supplying fuel into the world’s largest energy-market: Europe. Russia is now the dominant supplier of both oil and gas, but its ally Iran is a Shiite gas-powerhouse that wants to share the market there, and Russia has no objection. Qatar is a Sunni gas-powerhouse and wants to become the main supplier of gas there, and Saudi Arabia is a Sunni oil-powerhouse, which wants to become the major supplier of oil, but Saudi oil and Qatari gas would be pipelined through secular-controlled (Assad’s) Syria, and this is why the U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another sterling example of the reality of Karl Marx's statement: "All wars are economic."

This has ZERO to do with humanitarian assistance to the Syrian people, and EVERYTHING to do with money from pipelines, where the oil goes, and in what national denomination is is sold.

This Is No ‘New Cold War’; It’s Far Worse Than That

US President Barack Obama is putting the goal of nuclear primacy into place, starting with implementation of Ronald Reagan’s proposed «Star Wars», Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) defense system, now called the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system, and technically called by the name of its current embodiment: Lockheed Martin’s, Boeing’s, and Raytheon’s, Aegis Ashore system, which Obama first made operational in Romania on 12 May 2016. It’s designed so as to enable a surprise nuclear attack against Russia in which any missiles that Russia might be able to launch in retaliation will supposedly (if the system works 100%) be annihilated during their launch-phase. Officially, however, its purpose is to defend Europe from being attacked by Iranian missiles. Any public US admission that this ‘defensive’ system is actually preparation for a blitz US nuclear assault on Russia is obviously out of the question.
