Trump warned Erdogan in letter: 'Don't be a tough guy' or 'a fool'

This is a damn good letter Trump sent to the would be Caliph of a revived Ottoman Empire!
Some peoples reaction to it makes me put a palm to my forehead!
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -

Trump had the letter released to bolster his view that he did not give Turkey a green light to invade Syria. Many lawmakers have been sharply critical of his decision to remove American forces from the conflict zone.

“I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don’t let the world down. You can make a great deal,” said Trump in the letter.

He said he had confidentially enclosed to Erdogan a copy of a letter Mazloum had sent him.

Is Trump Backpedaling on 5G? No Federal Spending for R&D. Are All The Warnings Finally Sinking In?

By B.N. Frank

Is it possible that the Trump administration is paying attention to the rising tide against 5G?

A 5G Proponent website published an article last month that certainly makes it seem like the insane “Race for 5G” may not be as much of a priority anymore...

'Don't be a tough guy!' What Donald Trump wrote to Turkey's president while Syria invasion began - as he promised 'concessions' from Kurds and warned history would see Edrogan as 'the devil' if he attacked

President Donald Trump tried to cajole Recep Tayyip Erdogan, his Turkish counterpart, into negotiating with Syrian Kurds instead of invading, a letter released by the White House reveals.

'History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen,' the president wrote on October 9, as Erdogan's forces prepared to cross into Syria.

'Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool!' he wrote. 'I will call you later.'

Trump told reporters during a press conference Wednesday that he hadn't given Erdogan 'a green light' to invade, and claimed releasing 'a very powerful letter' would dispel misconceptions about the impact of his troop withdrawal from Syria days before he wrote it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sitting at my desk here, and having a palm-to-forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this.

That President Trump believed that he could influence Erdogan by insulting him, painfully demonstrates a reckless professional idiocy, writ large, under his watch.

This... is really painful, to watch a President of the United States behaving in this manor, and actually thinking he could "save the day" by doing so.

US ‘deeply worried’ as China continues to buy Iran oil

Chinese companies continuing oil purchases from Iran despite US sanctions are seriously worrying the White House which is warning them to stop the trade, senior administration officials say.

Last month, the US announced sanctions on five Chinese nationals and six entities, including two Cosco Shipping Corporation subsidiaries, saying they had shipped Iranian crude oil in violation of the sanctions.

The coercive measures were similar to US sanctions imposed in July on energy company Zhuhai Zhenrong, one of China’s largest state-backed oil companies for transporting Iranian crude oil.

China has dismissed the sanctions, saying they amount to “bullying” and has defended its trade with Iran as legitimate and legal.

To ramp up pressure on Beijing, the US administration is now accusing Chinese shipping companies of turning off their transponders to conceal the location of their cargoes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, what is the US government actually order their military to do in this situation?!?

Are they going to be setting up "interdictions" of Chinese ships, to check for Iranian oil, in acts which are tantamount of a declaration of war against China?!?

I would strongly and politely suggest to this government to cool its jets regarding Iran; there is no public sentiment or support for an attack against it, and thinking Americans have had enough of the obviously false flags which brought us to war in Iraq, Yemen, and Afghanistan.

What should President Trump do?!? He should support a US return to the P5+1 Agreement with Iran, and robustly insure that our "great good friend" in the Middle East, Israel, just keeps is military hands in its pockets for the rest of President Trump's first term in Office.

That would be one hell of a decent start toward insuring a racheting down of tensions in the middle east and elsewhere.

Turkish invasion creates better conditions for Islamic State terrorists as it creates chaos, Assad’s key adviser tells RT

There is a risk of an Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) resurgence in Syria, and it is Turkey’s invasion of the northeast that should be blamed, Bouthaina Shaaban, a political adviser to Syrian President Bashar Assad, told RT.
“Every war creates chaos and chaos is a good climate for terrorism. So this invasion creates better climate for ISIS terrorists,” she said, referring to the terrorist group by its old name. “But the major force that is fighting for Turkey now are the Jabhat al-Nusra. So the terrorists are led by Turkey now to occupy part of the Syrian land.”

And from beginning it was Turkey, who allowed terrorists from all over the world to cross the border and fight this war against the Syrian people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You mean, the US-funded and trained and armed jihadists groups, sometimes called ISIS?!?

Operational scope Weapons sales, training of Syrian rebel forces
Location Eastern Europe, Jordan, Syria
Planned by Central Intelligence Agency
Target Syrian Army

us GOVERNMENT created Al Qaeda and the Isis Terrorist Group

THOSE GUYS?!?

Looking at this, one has to wonder if this very public "spat" between DC and Istanbul, is not a "cover" for bringing ISIS back into Syria for a decap strike against Damascus.

The big question is, what will Russia do now, and what will happen in Sochi next week, when Edrogan will be having some face time with Russia's President Putin?!?

State Dept: US Will Require Chinese Diplomats to Report Contacts With American Officials, Educators

US State Department officials stated on Wednesday that moving forward, Chinese diplomats will have to give advance notice of any meetings with state, local and municipal officials, including those with research and educational institutions.

Reuters reported that the change was made in an effort to "add reciprocity" to the manner in which American diplomats are required to do business in China.

Additionally, the measure will cover all staff involved in Chinese missions within the US and Chinese officials traveling through the country on official business.

Citing State Department officials, AP reported that unlike China's requirements for American diplomats, the US' rules are "less onerous than China’s because the Chinese must approve such contacts." The Trump administration will not be requiring Chinese diplomats to receive prior approval ahead of planned meetings.

Department officials have reportedly already received one notice from Chinese officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but how is this supposed to assist Muslim minorities in China's Xinjiang region?!?

The problem here, is it won't and it cannot.

U.S. Sanctions Could Push Turkey to Leave NATO

Erdo?an’s next decision towards Syria will heavily impact the future of not only the region, but his relations with the U.S. and Russia. With murmurings existing for years now whether Turkey should leave the NATO alliance, these sanctions against Turkey, a country already in a deep economic crisis, will only bring this question to the forefront of debate.

Although the U.S. cites human right abuses as the reason for the sanctions, an allegation that cannot be taken seriously considering their own long list of war crimes, it is likely Trump is ‘punishing’ Erdo?an for his insistence and defiance in buying the Russian S-400 system. This means that the souring relations between Washington and Ankara provides the perfect moment for Russian President Vladimir Putin to consolidate his country’s relations with Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not know what the US government is thinking about the issue of Turkey, but I do think that Putin is laughing hysterically, at those people "advising" the President, that they never saw the possibility, outlined in the last paragraph, as seriously possible.

Global economy faces ‘awfully high’ risk of recession in the next 12-18 months, warns Moody’s

There’s an “uncomfortably high” chance that a recession could hit the global economy in the near future, according to Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics. Policymakers may not be able to reverse that course, he said.

“I think risks are awfully high that if something doesn’t stick to script then we do have a recession,” Zandi told CNBC. “I’ll say this also: Even if we don’t have a recession over the next 12-18 months, I think it’s pretty clear that we’re going to have a much weaker economy.”

MORE CHEAP MONEY = MORE CHEAP TRICKS

Another week, another stream of mainstream media headlines that simplify complex economic and geopolitical facts and factors, distilling them down to a reason or two as to why markets move and economies shift.

Last week, for example, after the Dow slumped on Tuesday, 8 October after reports of failing trade negotiations between the U.S. and China, markets rebounded when President Trump tweeted brighter trade deal prospects.

However, the markets closed out on Friday, 11 October losing some gains following reports the deal would be achieved in “phases.”

Then yesterday, 14 October, the Dow opened flat on news that China wanted another round of talks before signing phase one of the trade deal.

With U.S. companies seeking alternative manufacturing sources, imports from “Communist” Vietnam (where America launched a deadly war that killed some four million Vietnamese and some 60,000 U.S. soldiers) rose 34 percent this year.

Swedish child climate activist reportedly a tool of Al Gore–linked corporate green hucksters

By Monica Showalter
Kids are great tools for big money and major powers lurking in the shadows, attempting to enact a political agenda. The latest instance, and it's a doozy, is young Greta Thunberg, the Swedish child climate activist who's coming to the states (with a big carbon footprint, according to today's piece by Thomas Lifson) to persuade us all to jump in on the global warming cavalcade of green laws to restrict our own freedoms — which, as it happens, will just coincidentally make the green elites even richer.

Forest fires in Homs, Lattakia and Tartous decimate Syrian environment

While everyone is focused on the dramatic events in north-eastern Syria, other areas of Syria are burning. Forest fires in Homs, Lattakia and Tartous are raging across much of the farmland and vast olive and fruit tree groves. This is a disaster for the smallholders who rely upon the yield from these trees for survival and warmth in the soon-to-be-here winter.

These fires are being fought and extinguished by the SYRIAN Civil Defence, the REAL one, the Syrian Civil Defence and Fire Brigades that were established in 1953. These brigades have been the quiet heroes in this 8 year proxy war waged against the Syrian people by the western imperialist alliance.

Concerns About 5G Worsening India’s 3 Million Ton E-Waste Mess

According to an opinion piece in the Hindu Businessline, India already has 3 million tons of E-Waste which will more than likely increase due to the introduction of 5G.

5G E-Waste concerns have been reported before. Let’s not forget also that E-Waste is a huge problem already without 5G.

So what will happen to all the increasing sources of E-Waste if there is ever a global ban on sending it to developing countries?...

Boeing’s top executive relinquishes chairman title in wake of 737 MAX crisis

Boeing’s board of directors on Friday removed its top executive from the chairmanship position in the wake of the 737 MAX safety crisis, the company announced Friday evening.

Dennis Muilenburg will continue to lead the company as chief executive officer, president and a director. David Calhoun, currently the independent lead director, was elected by the board to serve as its non-executive chairman.

The board made the decision to separate the CEO and chairman positions in order to allow Muilenburg to focus on day-to-day operations, particularly the task of returning the 737 MAX airliner to commercial service, according to a Boeing statement.

WeWork Could Run Out Of Cash By Next Month, Seeks Immediate Bailout

Investment banks behind WeWork are panicking as it seems a bailout of the company could be imminent, reported Financial Times.

Sources told FT that "fundraising efforts" are currently underway as the company's cash is about to be depleted.

We noted last month that the company lost $690 million in the first six months of the year and is expected to generate a loss from operations approaching $3 billion as it burns through tens of millions in cash daily. Analyst estimate that the company could run out of money by mid-2020.

Libra Is Dead: eBay, Stripe, Visa And MasterCard All Abandon Facebook's Cryptocurrency

One week after we reported that Facebook's Libra stablecoin project, Libra, was imploding, as online payment giant PayPal quite the Libra network, we can now set the time of death to today - that's when first eBay, then Stripe and finally Mastercard all abandoned Mark Zuckerberg's pet "cryptocurrency" (which was anything but) project.

As the FT reports, Ebay and Stripe became the second and third major companies in a week to drop out of Facebook’s planned cryptocurrency, following sustained political pressure and just days before the project’s backers are due to meet for their first board meeting, which may soon be empty.

"We highly respect the vision of the Libra Association; however, eBay has made the decision to not move forward as a founding member. At this time, we are focused on rolling out eBay’s managed payments experience for our customers" a company spokesperson said in a statement to the Financial Times.

Moab, Utah - Immigration-Driven Overpopulation Nightmare

For over 40 years, my wife and I enjoyed our visits to Moab, Utah and Arches National Park. We loved hiking to Delicate and Landscape Arches-true wonders of the natural world. One arch looks like a pair of cowboy chaps standing up on a rock. The other spans 304 feet across the rocks to form a bridge. Edward Abbey celebrated them in his epic book: Desert Solitaire.

But this year, during our two-month bike ride around America, we stopped into Moab to find a living, breathing nightmare come true. In a little town of 5,200 people, developers constructed motels to hold nearly 10,000 beds. They somehow either bribe, extort or simply overpower the Moab City Council. Money, money, money! In a city that can handle only 5,000 people, developers overwhelm everything with motel beds-and then, flee the area to spend their money on mountain homes away from the overpopulation-overload they created.

Erdogan Holding 50 US Tactical Nukes 'Hostage' As Trump Authorizes Sanctions

Amid all the media and pundit outrage since Turkey's President Erdogan launched his so-called 'Operation Peace Spring' into northeast Syria last week, vowing to wipe out Syrian Kurdish forces who've long held the border areas, what's been largely missing is acknowledgement of the uncomfortable fact that NATO ally Turkey has long hosted a major portion of America's nuclear Cold War-era arsenal stored across Europe.

And as Erdogan threatens to "open the doors and send 3.6 million migrants" to Europe while under increased international criticism for the rapidly rising civilian death toll in Syria, The New York Times reports the following bombshell Monday: some 50 US tactical nukes are "now essentially Erdogan’s hostages".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The absolute lack of thinking, on the part of those who are supposed to be counseling President Trump on issues like this, is painfully on full display right now, with this horrific oversight being one of the more glaring examples.

So, what are Turkey and Edrogan, going to do with these weapons?!? Will Pakistan's Prime Minister Khan order some Pakistani nuclear scientists to reverse engineer the damned things, and make sure their Turkish counterparts understand precisely how to make them work, and how to aim them?!?

I don't know just how terrifying this prospect is to you; but it scares the very stuffing out of me.

Massachusetts Utility Regulators Order Investigation into the Management of One of Their Largest Electric Providers. When Will Yours?

By B.N. Frank

Americans everywhere seem to be grumbling about their increasing electric bills due to “technology upgrades”. Since 2009 the federally mandated installation of EXPENSIVE, exceptionally problematic, environmentally unfriendly, and exceptionally vulnerable “Smart” Meters and Grids are a huge part of this for all utility customers regardless of which company is providing them.

Digital or wireless “Smart” Meters were NOT necessary for solar power in the past. Regardless, many environmentalists continue to be loyal to “Smart” Meters + Solar Power marketing promises even though these meters have never worked right and customers have been forced to pay higher bills for them anyway. Now Massachusetts utility regulators have been pressured to investigate why one of their utility companies is not keeping its promises on solar power, electric vehicles, and cybersecurity despite significant customer rate increases...

Prime customers will be now able to select one-day shipping on products that cost as little as $1, making routine trips to convenience stores that much less convenient.

China, the NBA, and the Massive Face of Globalism

By Jon Rappoport

Let’s get one thing straight. The Chinese people, whether they appear happy or sad, support their government because they’re controlled. After generations of being beaten down, the population bows the head and bends the knee to slave masters. Call that freedom if you want to.

And if you really believe the situation in America is no better than the system in China, even with the amount of censorship alive and well in America, even with the rigging of this economy, try an experiment. Move to China and start publishing articles relentlessly critical of the government there. See what happens. Be sure to leave a copy of your last Will and Testament at home...

Central Bank Issues Stunning Warning: "If The Entire System Collapses, Gold Will Be Needed To Start Over"

It's not just "tinfoil blogs" who (for the past 11 years) have been warning that a monetary reset is inevitable and the only viable fallback option once trust and faith in fiat is lost, is a gold standard (something which even Mark Carney hinted at recently): central banks are joining the doom parade now too.

An article published by the De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), or Dutch Central Bank, has shocked many with its claim that "if the system collapses, the gold stock can serve as a basis to build it up again. Gold bolsters confidence in the stability of the central bank's balance sheet and creates a sense of security."

Matt Taibbi: "We're In A Permanent Coup"

I’ve lived through a few coups. They’re insane, random, and terrifying, like watching sports, except your political future depends on the score.

On Thursday, news broke that two businessmen said to have “peddled supposedly explosive information about corruption involving Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden” were arrested at Dulles airport on “campaign finance violations.” The two figures are alleged to be bagmen bearing “dirt” on Democrats, solicited by Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman will be asked to give depositions to impeachment investigators. They’re reportedly going to refuse. Their lawyer John Dowd also says they will “refuse to appear before House Committees investigating President Donald Trump.” Fruman and Parnas meanwhile claim they had real derogatory information about Biden and other politicians, but “the U.S. government had shown little interest in receiving it through official channels.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Behind Hong Kong’s Black Terror

Deciphering who’s behind the violence leads to a long list of possibilities
By Pepe Escobar
Global Research, October 13, 2019

Still, before the violence broke out, hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong people had gathered in peaceful protests in June, illustrating the depth of feeling that exists in Hong Kong. These are the working-class Hongkongers that Lai supports through the pages of Apple Daily.

For the black blocs, the burning is all about them – not Hong Kong, the city and its hard-working people. Those are all subjected to the will of this fringe minority that, according to the understaffed and overstretched Hong Kong police force, numbers 12,000 people at the most.

Are You Ready to Die? The US Military/ Security Complex Wants Tensions to Increase

The American military/security complex wants the tensions to increase, because this makes the orchestrated “Russian Threat” even larger and leads to a larger budget and more profits and power for the US military/security complex. The military/security complex about which President Eisenhower warned us, to no effect, has been highly successful in dismantling the arms control agreements made between past US and Russian leaders. This has raised the profits of the US military/security complex at the expense of the security of the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although there are many pieces authored by Engdahl with which I agree mightily, this is not one of them.

Russian President Putin, and the people he has around him, may be many things, but foolish... is not one of them.

I don't think that Vlad and the Gang at the Kremlin, have any doubts about what the US government is attempting to pull here; but we have to take a look at the non-war ways in which Russia is trying to stop this, and here is a beautiful example, today, from zerohedge.com: Russia Considers Energy Exports In Euros, Rubles As Putin's De-Dollarization Continues

And if, ultimately, no one wants what is actually worthless US paper, which has no intrinsic value, as does gold or silver, what happens?!?

We may well see one of two options here; either a complete US economic collapse, or a Third World War, generated by this Last-gasp-of-empire country, the now unhinged, surveilled state of Amerika.

Unfortunately, Russia's military weaponry can run circles around nearly anything the US has produced yet, and they conscript, where the US does not; so how does the US win a war against Russia (and most probably China)
without the money; the troop strength; and the weaponry to make this happen?!?

The short answer is, right now, the US government and military may well not be able to win such a war, and would have to ask for terms of surrender, if there is anything left to surrender from such a war.

Phonegate Alert: 9 Out of 10 Mobile Phones Fail When Safety Tested in Real Use Conditions. Manufacturers Knowingly Overexposed Us to RF Radiation

It’s not a big surprise that we can’t trust phone manufacturers.  For many years they have been warning their shareholders – not the public – that they may eventually be held liable for causing harm with their products and transmitters.  Perhaps that’s why insurance companies haven’t been covering them.

In August the Chicago Tribune reported that 11 smartphone models exceeded federal Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation limits which led to Fegan Scott law firm filing class action lawsuits.

Since 2018, Phonegate Alert has been reporting about RF safety issues with phones and more.  Earlier this month, they published this update...

Cannabis Cleans Up Nuclear Radiation and Toxic Chemical Waste

Industrial hemp has been used to clean up deadly pollutants before. The most famous use of industrial hemp for phytoremediation was near the site of the deadly nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, Ukraine. In the mid-1990s, a company named Phytotech worked with researchers and a Ukraine-based seed bank to plant thousands of hemp plants in and around Chernobyl.

Phytoremediation is a relatively new process, but it is very helpful.

Iran: Looking Towards a Bright Future

Iran is a modern society with an ancient history. Together with China it is one of the world’s oldest continuous civilizations. For centuries it was the center of an ancient and vibrant culture, that can trace its origins back at least 7000 years before the Christian era.

A knowledge of and understanding of this proud and lengthy history is central to an appreciation of the stance taken by modern Iranian leaders to the imperialist ambitions of the United States whose post World War II presence in the West Asian region (the ‘middle east’ is an entirely European construct and his little geographical significance or meaning).

U.S. HAS SPENT SIX TRILLION DOLLARS ON WARS THAT KILLED HALF A MILLION PEOPLE SINCE 9/11, REPORT SAYS

The United States has spent nearly $6 trillion on wars that directly contributed to the deaths of around 500,000 peoplesince the 9/11 attacks of 2001.

Brown University's Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs published its annual "Costs of War" report Wednesday.

The final count revealed, "The United States has appropriated and is obligated to spend an estimated $5.9 trillion (in current dollars) on the war on terror through Fiscal Year 2019, including direct war and war-related spending and obligations for future spending on post 9/11 war veterans."
