Trump repeats Iran and Syria lies for "regime change" in speeches to Saud Family (who claim to own so-called 'Saudi' Arabia) and Israel. This is ‘leadership’ until .01% arrests for OBVIOUS illegal Wars of Aggression of rogue state empire

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Choices, choices for the American people:

1. Accept dicts of lying .01% “leaders” for OBVIOUS illegal Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.
2. Demand .01% arrests for these obvious crimes.

President Trump addressed the Saud family and associated vassal states on Sunday in a literal fire and brimstone speech that repeated criminal threats on Iran and Syria:

"It (Iran) is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.

Among Iran’s most tragic and destabilizing interventions have been in Syria. Bolstered by Iran, Assad has committed unspeakable crimes, and the United States has taken firm action in response to the use of banned chemical weapons by the Assad Regime—launching 59 tomahawk missiles at the Syrian air base from where that murderous attack originated."

Trump becomes first president to pray at Western Wall

President Trump on Monday became the first sitting U.S. president to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, one of the holiest sites in Judaism.

Mr. Trump placed his right hand on the ancient stone wall, prayed and placed a small paper prayer note in a crevice, as is tradition. He and first lady Melania Trump also toured the nearby Church of the Holy Sepulchre, at the site where most Christians believe Christ was crucified and buried.

Scott Adams: Time to End Presidential Press Briefings?

Personally, I enjoy watching Sean Spicer spar with the press. It’s good entertainment. But press briefings don’t make sense in 2017. And they certainly don’t make sense for a Trump presidency. I’ll tell you why.

Manchester 'explosions': Video shows screaming crowd fleeing Ariana Grande concert

An Ariana Grande concert has become the site of shock and panic after reports of explosions forced attendees to evacuate Manchester Arena.

A video taken by someone in the crowd showed a hectic scene as people hurried to exit the area. Police have tweeted that there are a "number of confirmed fatalities and others injured."

Greater Manchester Police have have warned people to stay away from the arena, though it was not immediately clear what the loud bangs reported as potential explosions were. Witnesses posted on social media that the bangs may have been gunshots or even a bomb.

Washington is on fire

Get ready for another major dust-up over the Trump administration’s attempts to replace Obamacare this week as the Congressional Budget Office releases numbers that are likely to make some eyes bulge. Meanwhile, this big, dumb controversy involving Trump, Russia and the FBI certainly isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Unfortunately for Trump supporters, it’s looking like Washington wants the president to be a lame duck by way of manufactured controversy.

North Korea's Latest Missile Test Brings Us One Step Closer To WWIII (Here's How We Got Here)

As time goes on, North Korea’s nuclear program is making war with the United States more and more likely. As SHTFplan.com's Daniel Lang details, we’re on a terrible path that no one knows how to escape from.

On the one hand, North Korea is clearly led by an unhinged and tyrannical government that can’t be trusted with nuclear weapons. So you can understand why the US is so determined to stop their progress with these weapons. But at the same time, those nuclear weapons could one day guarantee that the leaders of North Korea will remain in power for a long time. Those weapons would make any potential aggressor think twice about trying to invade the bellicose nation, so there’s no way that North Korea is going to abandon its nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This possibility is making residents of Oahu, military, or non-military, more than a little nervous.

Authoritarianism overdose a side effect of Trump Administration’s Drug War policy

The use of government force to stop adults from putting certain substances into their bodies — whether marijuana, saturated fats, or raw milk — violates the nonaggression principle that is the bedrock of a free society. Therefore, all those who care about protecting individual liberty and limiting government power should support ending the drug war.

Seth Rich Plot Thickens: "DC Insider" Speaks Of "Complete Panic" At Highest Levels Of DNC

Last week, Fox News dropped a bombshell report officially confirming, via anonymous FBI sources, what many had suspected for quite some time, that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the WikiLeaks source for leaks which proved that the DNC was intentionally undermining the campaign of Bernie Sanders. In addition to exposing the corruption of the DNC, the leaks cost Debbie Wasserman Shcultz her job as Chairwoman.

Of course, if it's true that WikiLeaks' emails came from a DNC insider it would end the "Russian hacking" narrative that has been perpetuated by Democrats and the mainstream media for the past several months. Moreover, it would corroborate the one confirmation that Julian Assange has offered regarding his source, namely that it was "not a state actor."

Meanwhile, the plot thickened a little more over the weekend when Kim Dotcom confirmed via Twitter that he was working with Seth Rich to get leaked emails to WikiLeaks.

Breaking: Iraqi Units Open Fire on Hostile US Jets Operating Inside Syrian Desert

The Shi’ite fighters from Iraq have controversially been bombed by the US Air Force on two separate occasions; this is explained by their blitz offensive targeted an area controlled by US vetted rebels.

In the weeks to come, the SAA – heavily assisted by foreign fighters – hopes to capture the Al-Tanf border crossing. If successful, land trade between Damascus and Baghdad will resume for the first time in years.

With more reinforcements arriving on the M2 highway frontier, pro-government forces have now advanced within 30 kilometers of the Al-Tanf border crossing.

Meanwhile, a unit of Norwegian special forces entered the Al-Tanf region to reinforce US and British troops. However, with the SAA and Iraqi volunteers fixated on retaking the border, coalition forces may be forced to abort mission.

Trump and “Regime Change”: ‘We Will Do Whatever is Necessary’ to ‘Fix’ Venezuela

US President Donald Trump said Thursday he would work with Colombia to “fix” Venezuela, as he slapped Caracas with new sanctions.

The sanctions targeted Venezuela’s chief judge and seven other members of Venezuela’s Supreme Court (TSJ). The sanctions were in retaliation to a controversial TSJ ruling that effectively granted the court with the power to pass legislation without parliamentary approval. The ruling was quickly reversed, but kicked off a wave of opposition violence that has so far left 54 people dead.

The announcement of the new sanctions came after Trump held a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. During the conference, the US leader claimed the world hasn’t seen any political crisis as bad as Venezuela’s in “decades”.

“People don’t have enough to eat. There’s great violence. We will do whatever is necessary … to help with fixing that,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word please:

The people in Yemen are starving, courtesy of the US/Saudi blockade of Yemen's ports.

Yemeni children starving to death, due to US/Saudi port blockades

Yemeni children are being assassinated and maimed for life daily, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi air attacks on civilians.

So, Mr. President, before you go about regime-changing here, please take a good hard look at the bitter fruit the Saudis have created in their attempt to regime change Yemen.

And as long as these atrocities on behalf of the US-enabled Saudi military still exist, as a Christian witness, and Pacifist Activist, I am morally compelled to continue link them to this site.

Comey’s war on Trump

The American criminal justice system is rightly named. It is criminal and run by criminals and justice is what those criminals say it is. At the top of the criminal justice system’s enforcement division is the Federal Bureau of Investigation. And at the top of that, until May 9, was James Comey, who was fired by Donald Trump. -- This is the same Comey who gave Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin a pass on their “careless” handling of classified documents related to the SHillary homebrew email server.

New French President ‘Will Not Recognise Palestine’

Newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron has reiterated that he will not recognise Palestine as a state as it would hinder good relations between Israel and France.

Prior to his election win, Macron said he backs a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and that recognising Palestine would cause instability and he would not risk France’s relationship with Israel to serve the Palestinian agenda. At a political rally Macron said:

Unilateral recognition of Palestine, right now, will undermine stability,

That’s right. France’s new liberal president would rather maintain good relations with Israel than recognize “Palestine.”

WOW, that sure came quickly!!

Trump confirms U.S. ties with Bahrain won't face tension

U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed on Sunday that the ties of his country with Bahrain will be stronger and won't face tension after today, Al Arabiya local news reported.

He highlighted that as part of his two-day visit to Riyadh when he met with Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa in the sideline of U.S.-Gulf summit.
"Relations between the two countries are great, although there were some tensions before that won't exist in the current management. We will build long term ties based on common grounds," he said.

The former U.S administration backed the Shiite opposition in Bahrain since the beginning of unrest in 2011, despite Bahrain is one of its alliance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President: in supporting the Al-Khalifa monarchy, and its brutal, horrific treatment of peaceful protestors, many of whom were tortured to give "confessions", and jailed by kangaroo courts for long sentences, you have just told the world (though it really didn't need too much telling at this point), that freedom, representative government, and democracy don't really matter to you in global dealings, as long as there is money to be made, or services to be provided.

Bahrain is host to the US Navy's 5th fleet, and that appears to be a deal you don't want to mess with.

In every average-size high-school class in this state, there are likely two or three students who have attempted suicide in the past year. An additional three or four probably have seriously considered ending their lives.

Trump Puts US on Sunni Muslim Side of Bitter Sectarian War with Shias

The most important aspect of Mr Trump’s two-day visit to Saudi Arabia is that it took place at all. He chose to go first to the world’s most thorough-going autocracy where his speech will be lauded by the state-controlled media.

Almost all of the 55 Muslim rulers and leaders in the vast hall in Riyadh will have breathed a little easier on hearing Mr Trump’s repeated call “to drive out terrorism”, since they have always described anybody who opposes their authority as “terrorists”.

This will be a green-light to people like Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to go on imprisoning and torturing Muslim Brotherhood members. American pressure on the ruling Sunni minority in Bahrain to stop persecuting the Shia majority was always tame, but Mr Trump’s praise for the island’s rulers may make the situation even worse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, military conflict against Iran will most probably mean war with Russia, as Russian politicians and military personnel have been publicly very vocal on the notion, that if Iran gets attacked militarily, Russia will come to its aid.

Mattis: Escalation of ISIS War Doesn’t Threaten Civilians

Speaking at the Pentagon, Defense Secretary James Mattis talked up the continued escalation of the ISIS war worldwide, vowing the “annihilate” thousands of ISIS fighters in the Middle East to ensure that they are never able to return to their countries of origin.

At the same time, Mattis downplayed the risk the continued escalation of the war posed to civilians, despite the soaring number of civilian deaths in recent months coinciding with previous escalations, saying that the US would continue its “extraordinary efforts” to keep the civilian death toll low.

In practice, that likely means that the Pentagon will continue to go to almost impossible lengths to publish official death tolls that are far, far lower than the actual figures, Independent groups like Air Wars regularly document civilian deaths from US airstrikes at least 10 times higher than what the Pentagon puts on their official list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A quick question for Sec Def Mattis; sir, do you believe that any thinking American is believing this utter and complete codswallop for a second?!?

Because, sir, if you do, you are truly, beyond-help delusional.

Thinking Americans understand that the US military presence in Syria is about engineering regime change; and in Iraq, it is about insuring that its leadership is Western-centric; that the oil goes only to countries the US approves of, and that the oil is only sold in American dollars.

“Everybody’s Freaked” – Washington Nuclear Facility Admits Second Radiation Leak, Workers Contaminated

Just under two weeks since the emergency at the Hanford nuclear facility in Washington state (following a tunnel collapse), NBC’s local affiliate King5 reports Hanford’s owner, The U.S. Department of Energy, is scrambling to deal with a second emergency – signs have emerged that a massive underground double shell nuclear waste holding tank may be leaking. The tank is known as AZ 101 and was put into service in 1976. The tank’s life was expected to be 20 years. Now it has been holding hot, boiling radioactive and chemically contaminated waste for 41 years.

Trump & 55 Muslim-majority states sign pact pledging 34,000 troops to fight ISIS in Iraq & Syria

The US and Middle Eastern countries have backed a new pact that promises to provide extra troops for defeating Islamic State, singles out Iran for destabilizing the region, and says that Riyadh is to become the heart of the region’s counter-terrorism operations.

Described as the Riyadh Declaration, the document was signed following US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Saudi capital for a summit that brought in Islamic representatives from 55 countries, and vowed “to combat terrorism in all its forms, address its intellectual roots, dry up its sources of funding and to take all necessary measures to prevent and combat terrorist crimes in close cooperation among their states.”

The exact membership of what the communique called the Middle East Strategic Alliance will be decided next year, but putative members have committed to assembling “a reserve force of 34,000 troops to support operations against terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria when needed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short translation of the "Riyadh Declaration"; increased war against Syria, by which none of these countries have been invited to assist it in getting rid of jihadists, leading to regime change in Damascus, and ultimately war against Iran.

And the big question I have here, is if things escalate in Syria, and if there is ultimately a war against Iran, what will Russia do, in light of its efforts to defend the Al-Assad government, and has consistently stated that should Iran be attacked militarily, it will come to Iran's aid?!?

I can tell you very clearly, what Putin, Medvedev, and the Russian Duma will NOT do, as a response to such provocations; join hands and sing "Kumbyah"!!

10 Crazy Conspiracy Theories… That turned out to be conspiracy facts…

With nearly the entire mainstream media apparatus at their disposal, the government is a maestro at this practice. As we learned from so-called Operation Mockingbird — a conspiracy theory fact discussed in my first post on the subject, “Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to Be True,” — hundreds, if not thousands of news organizations have been conscripted into working with the CIA to support pro-government narratives. That was in the 1960s. One can only imagine how vast the network is now. Not to mention the fact that a single proprietary algorithm owned by Google dictates the vast majority of the population’s exposure to a subject.

Commodities Bust Hits Farm Lenders, Delinquencies Surge 225%

Just as the deflating Farmland bubble leaves its marks.

When it comes to agricultural debt, the numbers aren’t huge enough to take down the global financial system. But this shows how much pain the commodities rout is producing in the farm belt just when the farmland asset bubble that took three decades to create is deflating, and what specialized lenders and the agricultural enterprises they serve – some of them quite large – are currently struggling with in terms of delinquencies.

KIM Jong-un has vowed to increase North Korea's military might following the successful deployment of a new-intermediate range ballistic missile on Sunday.

KIM Jong-un has vowed to increase North Korea's military might following the successful deployment of a new-intermediate range ballistic missile on Sunday.

After watching the launch of the new Pukguksong-2 missile, the North Korean dictator was reportedly satisfied with its accuracy and branded it a “successful strategic weapon”, according to state-run media outlet KCNA.

After the second missile launch in less than a week, KCNA reported: "Saying with pride that the missile's rate of hits is very accurate and Pukguksong-2 is a successful strategic weapon, [Kim Jong-un] approved the deployment of this weapon system for action.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

to President Donald Trump; China's President Xi Jinping; Japan's Prime Minister Abe; gentlemen, a word please.

As much a pain as North Korea's Kim Jung Un may be to deal with, the only resolution of the issue of North Korean missiles is through negotiation, and right the heck now, thank you very much!!

What should be happening is the establishment of a peace accord for North Korea, with iron-clad promises of free trade, and lack of any restrictions against its economy, with the quid pro quo of North Korea stopping its nuclear weapons program when this takes effect.

And a short memo to Secretary of State Tillerson, who has reiterated that only when North Korea ends its nuclear weapons program, will the US be ready to negotiate; Mr. Tillerson, Kim Jung Un understands that his only possible ploy for preventing an invasion of his country is the development of a nuclear weapon as a deterrent.

He has seen what has happened to countries which do not have this, and is trying to insure that North Korea doesn't become yet another victim of "regime change."

The time for serious negotiations is now: the potential for horrific damage from an attack against North Korea would be horrific for the region as a whole.

House Seeks Security Upgrades at Members' Offices Back Home

The U.S. House's Sergeant-at-Arms is seeking at least $2 million to increase security at Congress members' offices in their home districts, the News4 I-Team has learned.

The security upgrades include panic buttons for offices that don't already have them and video surveillance equipment.

Members of Congress have made an increasing number of requests to improve home-office security, Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving said recently. He's seeking the additional money from the House Appropriations Committee.
He didn't specify the nature of any threats against members.

On Capitol Hill, members of Congress are protected by hundreds of armed U.S. Capitol Police. But back home, their offices are often in open, public places such as strip malls.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

MY GOODNESS!

Do you think House members have finally realised that the general public they allegedly represent are not the "sheeple" from yesteyear, but people who have actually realised that it only the corporations, which purchase legislators, the one percenters, and the American Deep State, which is represented by Congress, and that They, the People, have become irrelevant?!?

And they have seen this because, no matter which side of the political aisle they are on, when they vote, absolutely nothing changes?!?

The US government is groaning under unsustainable and unpayable debt; wars continue; the regime changes continue; and the basic routine of invade; plunder; regime change, and create chaos in countries where the US expropriates resources to which it has utterly no moral right, never changes?!?

And in this realisation, they are perhaps more than a bit peeved?!?

EMP And Martial Law TEST?! UNDENIABLE PROOF WannaCry Ransomware Cyber Attack Is Only The Beginning!

It's More Than Just A Cyber Attack!

On the morning of Fri., May 12th, 2017, an unprecedented ‘‘ransomware’’ cyber attack struck tens of thousands of victims in 150 countries.

WannaCry, the ransomware program, also known as WannaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r 2.0, Wanna Decryptor, and others similar, began with infecting one computer, until infecting all others in a local area network (LAN).

The ransomware encrypts the infected computer's hard disk drive, then attempts to gain access so it can further spread on random computers connected to the internet via TCP port 445.

THE TENS OF MILLIONS OF FORGOTTEN AMERICANS THAT THE U.S. ECONOMY HAS LEFT BEHIND

The evidence that the middle class in America is dying continues to mount. As you will see below, nearly half the country would be unable “to cover an unexpected $400 expense”, and about two-thirds of the population lives paycheck to paycheck at least part of the time. Of course the economy has not been doing that well overall in recent years. Barack Obama was the only president in all of U.S. history not to have a single year when the economy grew by at least 3 percent, and U.S. GDP growth during the first quarter of 2017 was an anemic 0.7 percent. During the Obama era, it is true that wealthy enclaves in New York, northern California and Washington D.C. did thrive, but meanwhile most of the rest of the country has been left behind.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are not the statistics indicating that the US economy is rebounding, except, perhaps, for the one percenters; these are the statistics of an American economy in absolute, profound, and intense decline.

TRUMP-RUSSIA SCANDAL DISTRACTS FROM LATEST SYRIA BOMBING, TROOP SURGE IN AFGHANISTAN

THERE IS SOMETHING DEEPLY WRONG WITH WHAT YOU DO WHEN EVEN SATAN FEELS THE NEED TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM YOU:

The Saudis and their Wahhabi brethren in Qatar are the root of extremist Takfiri terrorism all over the world. They finance the most radical and brutal groups of conservative Muslim head-choppers. This includes the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the culprits of 9/11, al-Qaeda, ISIS and whatever may be their next incarnation.

The U.S. knows this. Trump knows this. An email Hillary Clinton sent to her election campaign manager John Podesta correctly noted:

[...] the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, [..] are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This weapons deal was a very, very bad idea, and one which will most likely see US/Russian military conflict in both Syria and Iran, ultimately.

I don't know what the Vegas odds are about the US government reinstituting the draft, but were I a betting woman, I would not bet against that, nor against it happening in the relatively near future.

FRINGE NEOCON WROTE TRUMP’S SAUDI SPEECH

If there is any doubt Trump was captured early on by the neocons, one only need to look at the speech he delivered in Saudi Arabia.

The 30 minute speech was written by Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller, an ally of former Breitbart executive Stephen Bannon and former Breitbart writer Julia Hahn.

Miller organized and promoted “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” while a student at Duke University. He worked with the notorious neocon firebrand David Horowitz at the time. Josefin Dolton writes:

As a college student, Miller wrote a biweekly column for the The Duke Chronicle, addressing such topics as terrorism, US foreign policy and political correctness. Defending President George W. Bush’s war in Iraq, Miller wrote that “Islamic terrorists have declared holy war on the United States. They have declared a death sentence on every man, woman and child living in this country.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this?!?

It has been the Neocon/Israeli/American Deep State's collective desire, ever since the 1979 Iranian revolution, to invade and balkanise this country, for its "temerity" in having overthrown the US-imposed, brutal dictator, the Shah.

Since that time, Iran has been making steady economic and social progress, even though I profoundly disagree with their not allowing women to major in some specific areas in college.

Universities in Iran Put Limits on Women's Options

It's interesting that the US has embraced its former enemy, Vietnam, as a major trading partner, but not Iran; and the primary reason for that is that Israel considers it their "existential threat" in the region, and wants it destroyed, by any means necessary.

What is that phrase heard so frequently in the Middle East, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend"?!?

This is why Israel is not complaining too strenuously about the huge military aid package President Trump just approved for Saudi Arabia, because it sees Saudi Arabia as a US proxy to take down Iran militarily.

US STRIKE ON SYRIAN FORCES: THE SCRAMBLE FOR POST-ISLAMIC STATE SYRIA

The tactical scope of the attack was relatively limited, but strategically, the stakes particularly along Syria's territorial boundaries have been raised significantly.

Regarding the attack, US geopolitical analysts appear unanimous regarding the rhyme and reason behind it.

Foreign Policy magazine in a recent article claimed that the strike "showed American commanders are willing to use force to maintain de facto safe zones in the country’s east." The article also attempts to claim these "safe zones" are being used to stand up forces to fight the Islamic State.

In reality, the Islamic State was a creation of the US and its regional allies and meant specifically to "isolate the Syrian regime," according to a 2012 US Defense Intelligence Agency report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question reverberating in my head, is how long before US and Russian forces actually start to engage, because their objectives in Syria are polar opposites?!?

The US wants "regime change" in Damascus, to make it easier to ultimately invade Iran, but Russia wants to defend and support the government of Bashar al-Assad; these two objectives are completely mutually exclusive.

It is not, at this point, a question of if this is going to happen; only, when it is going to happen.

BAE TO SETTLE BRIBERY CASES FOR MORE THAN $400 MILLION

Britain’s BAE Systems PLC reached settlements totaling almost $500 million with the U.S. Justice Department and the U.K. Serious Fraud Office to resolve longstanding corruption allegations that have dogged one of the world’s biggest defense contractors.

Under the agreements, London-based BAE will plead guilty to charges in both countries, relating to transactions that took place before 2002. The investigations examined whether BAE had made illegal payments to officials in various countries to secure lucrative contracts. The accusations have cast a shadow over BAE’s business, even as it has expanded world-wide.

“It allows us to draw a very heavy line under the legacy of very historical issues,” said BAE Chairman Dick Olver. “We’re pleased to see the uncertainty removed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet, demonstrating that the US has an absolutely two-tiered legal system, no one who actually did the bribing goes to prison.

The Uber-rich, particularly if they are weapons-manufacturing-centric, simply get off with a financial slap on the wrist; the company's annual income is roughly around one billion (or more).

DNC AFFILIATES INCREASE INVOLVEMENT IN SETH RICH CASE AFTER WHEELER CLAIMS

Since Fox 5 DC's report, a number of individuals speaking on behalf of the Rich family have blasted Fox News and Rod Wheeler for speaking out on the case. Rich family spokesman Brad Bauman insisted that anyone who continued to push the story either had a "transparent political agenda," or were a sociopath. But an August 2016 tweet from Wikileaks revealed that Bauman is a crisis public relations consultant working with the Pastorum Group. A media release from the Pastorum Group reveals that Bauman previously worked for the DNC and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

The SEIU has previously been reported by the Wall Street Journal as a "top spender" for the Democrats, openly endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 and actively assisted in her campaign. It has been widely criticized by some groups for the involvement of union members in crimes including embezzlement, criminal conspiracy, perjury and identity theft.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a marvelous line from the TV show "Elementary", (and I am paraphrasing) in which the Sherlock Holmes character describes his father as "a man with assassins on speed-dial"; in the case of the Clinton Cartel, however, this is perhaps more than a valid assessment.

SPECIAL: Jared Kushner Working for Israel to Enable Saudi Arabian Nuclear Attack Against Iran UPDATE 2: Gulf NATO to Wage War on Iran & Syria

ROBERT STEELE: I have learned from a person I trust that Jared Kushner is being used by Israel to rapidly enable Saudi Arabian nuclear attack capability against Iran. In his recent call to the Lockheed CEO asking for a 12% discount (it should have been 50%) on Lockheed’s missile defense system, Kushner was overheard discussing the arming of the Saudis with nuclear missiles with what sounded like an Israeli intelligence officer. See the Updates. Donald Trump is becoming impeachable by We the People.

My source tells me that the Israeli’s believe they can incite a limited nuclear war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and that the nuclearization of Saudi Arabia will discourage Russia from deepening its support of Syria while also serving as a threat against Iran.

GREEK AUTHORITIES TO LAUNCH MASS CONFISCATION OF SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES, SECURITIES, HOMES IN TAX-EVASION CRACKDOWN

Last week, the Greek parliament once again approved more austerity to unlock withheld Greek bailout funds in Brussels: a symbolic move, which has little impact without any actual follow through, like for example, actually imposing austerity. And while Greeks have been very good in the former (i.e. promises), they have been severely lacking in the latter (i.e. delivery).

That may be changing. According to Kathimerini, Greek Finance Ministry inspectors are about to start seeking out the owners of all local undeclared properties, while the law will be amended to allow for financial products and the content of safe deposit boxes to be confiscated electronically. The plan for the identification of taxpayers who have “forgotten” to declare their properties to the tax authorities is expected to be ready by year-end, according to the timetable of the Independent Authority for Public Revenue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is instructive to watch what is going on with the governments of Greece and Venezuela, as this is precisely how the US government will be looting the property and assets of its citizens when the financial excrement hits the ventilation system once the US economy has crashed.

HERE’S WHY SAUDI ARABIA AND ISRAEL ARE ALLIES IN ALL BUT NAME

Those who claim that Israel is opposed to Donald Trump’s now openly warm relations with Saudi Arabia are missing the actual point. On the surface, many assume that Israel and Saudi Arabia have poor relations. Neither country has diplomatic relations with one another, one is a self-styled Jewish state while the other is a Wahhabi Sunni monarchy.

But they both have the same regional goals, they both have the same enemies and both are intellectual anachronisms in a 20th century that has seen the fall of multiple monarchies, the end of traditional European colonialism and the fall of segregated regimes in Africa (Apartheid South Africa and UDI Rhodesia for example).

Both countries also seek to destroy Iran. Iran unlike Saudi Arabia and Israel, practices an ethical foreign policy. Far from wanting to export its Islamic Revolution, Iran has been a staunch ally to secular Syria and has been at the forefront of the fight against Salafist terrorism like ISIS and al-Qaeda.

TALKING TACTICS, LACKING STRATEGY - THE GENERALS ON SYRIA AND IRAQ

On Friday Secretary of Defense [General ret.] Mattis, General Dunford and Special Envoy McGurk on the Campaign to Defeat ISIS held a press briefing. A transcript is available.

My first thought after reading its was: "These people live in a different world. They have no idea how the real word works on the ground. What real people think, say, and are likely to do." There was no strategic thought visible. Presented were only some misguided tactical ideas.

One purpose of the briefing was obviously to souse the Saudis in preparation of Trumps weapons sales campaign there. There was no mention at all of any (Saudi financed) Jihadis in Syria or elsewhere besides ISIS. Questions about Kurdish or Iraqi paramilitary groups were answered with trash talk about Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One might think think, with all the blood and money already spent, there would be some grand, strategic plan the US military has come up with to counter the growth of ISIS in Iraq and Syria (where the US government has not been invited, thank you very much); unfortunately, there appear to be snippets of conflicting ideas about what should be done; what can, reasonably be done; and a general unwillingness to confess that ISIS is very much a Frankenstein-like creature created by elements of the US government.

Trump Administration Green Light’s “Regime Change” in Venezuela

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said that the Trump administration “wants to prevent another conflict like Syria, North Korea or South Sudan” in Venezuela which is a code phrase for “regime change.” According to a May 17th report by the Associated Press (AP):

Haley said the U.S. intention wasn’t to be “intrusive” or “heavy-handed” but to support regional efforts to find a political solution and “show respect for the Venezuelan people” who want free and fair elections, the release of political prisoners and the worsening humanitarian situation addressed.

“We think if that doesn’t happen we will certainly be hearing this in the Security Council because it will be a real problem — not just in the region but internationally,” Haley told reporters after the closed-door briefing and discussions that lasted over 1½ hours.

Venezuelan Ambassador Rafael Ramirez accused Washington of trying “to interfere in our domestic issues.” The AP report says that the

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American Deep State understood full well the consequences of what this precipitous drop in oil prices would do the both the Venezuelan and Russian economies; look at it as a form of destabilisation of regimes it doesn't particularly like.

Russia is recovering, economically, rather nicely, because its economy was diversified, which Venezuela's economy was not.

So now, regime change has been greenlit in Venezuela, courtesy of the US government. This horrific pattern persists, no matter who is in the White House.

That Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is seriously considering running for office, demonstrates, very clearly, the absolute figurehead nature of the position; the people really running the country are the American Deep State, and the US military.

In Afghanistan, Civilian Casualties Happen by Design, Not by Accident

Even the waves of so-called “terrorists attacks” in Germany, Holland and France last year underscores that these are the conspiracy theories aimed at continuous war in Syria and elsewhere. Many Europeans would still keep faith with the war-mongers’ cooked-up stories and back the US and NATO’s intervention in Syria. The sole purpose of all these planned attacks was and is to demonize the Islamic State or Al-Qaeda and draw a whole support to wage a filthy war against “the nations” where these terrorists operate.

Unrest in Afghanistan is a recipe for more US weapons’ sales to war-exposed countries, viable drug trafficking that generates a profit far beyond measure, unearthing of underground resources worth of several trillion dollars, restraining of the regional military and economic rival powers and so others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The sickening rhythm of "invade; regime change; occupy; expropriate resources; and insure those resources are only sold in US dollars" continues, unabated.

And in his weekend trip to Saudi Arabia, with that ginormous US arms deal he greenlit, it appears that President Trump is setting up that country for a proxy war against Iran, to regime change that country as well.

But there is one minor problem; in both Syria, and Iran, Russia's leadership has pledged both countries to resist any attempt at regime change; and the Russian military is very formidable, at this point in its history.

War with Russia over Syria and Iran?!?

That's precisely where the US government and military are headed right now, and unless there are some American leaders willing to bring some semblance of sanity back to DC, it is not a question of if, but when, such wars will happen.

Is Uncle Sam Funding the Islamic State? Where Does ISIS Get All Those Tanks, Weapons And Shiny New Toyota Trucks?

Toyota trucks aren’t all ISIS has managed to buy, capture or scavenge from us. In June, CNBC reported that so far we’ve accidentally furnished the Islamic State with at least $219.7 million worth of weapons, vehicles and other military supplies and gear — and that’s just the stuff we know about.

Based on various reports, CNBC came up with the following laundry list of supplies the U.S. has so kindly provided to ISIS so far.

2,300 Humvee armored vehicles at $70,000 each: $16 million
40 M1A1 Abram tanks at $4.3 million each: $172 million
52 M198 Howitzer mobile gun systems at $527,337 each: $2.7 million

US Aggression against Syria and the Principles of a “Just War”. “Make America a Global Empire, Again!”

t is already known that all of these terrorists in Syria, including primarily the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/DAESH), are armed and sponsored by the US (and Israel) and their regional quisling states (Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Kuwait, Qatar…).

The terrorists’ original warfare of partisan strategy [i], like by the Muslim Albanian Kosovo Liberation Army in 1995?1999, was based only on direct provoking of the legal and legitimate Syrian state security forces to respond by attacking the terrorists’ posts. Later, well armed and equipped terrorists occupied immense portion of Syria and establishing full scale of ideological and religious terror against the civilians that simply forced a regular Syrian security forces to launch large scale military actions in order to stop the jihadist terror and liberate the country from the criminals but as it is expected with unavoidable number of civilian casualties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what the Vegas odds of a direct military confrontation between the US and Russia in Syria might be at this point, but I would suggest that this possibility is escalating exponentially, with further US military attacks against Syria's sovereignty increasing consistently.

Pentagon plans to 'annihilate' IS fighters

President Donald Trump has instructed the Pentagon to "annihilate" the Islamic State group in Syria in a bid to prevent escaped foreign fighters from returning home, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Friday.

The move to encircle then kill as many jihadists in place as possible -- rather than letting them exit a city and targeting them as they flee -- reflects an increased urgency to stop battle-hardened jihadists bringing their military expertise and ideology back to European capitals and other areas.

The president has "directed a tactical shift from shoving ISIS out of safe locations in an attrition fight to surrounding the enemy in their strongholds so we can annihilate ISIS," Mattis said, using an acronym for IS.

"The intent is to prevent the return home of escaped foreign fighters."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Makes one wonder just how soon the corporate presstitutes will resort to the concept of "body counts" to both justify the US presence in Syria (where, unlike Russia, the US government has not been invited to deal with the Jihadists), and make it appear that the US is "winning", just as happened with the war in Vietnam.

North Korea fires medium-range missile in latest test

North Korea on Sunday fired a medium-range missile, U.S. and South Korean officials said, in the latest ballistics test for a country speeding up its development of nuclear weapons and missiles.

The rocket was fired from an area near the North Korean county of Pukchang, in South Phyongan Province, and flew eastward about 310 miles, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said. It did not immediately provide more details.

White House officials traveling in Saudi Arabia with President Donald Trump said the system, which was last tested in February, has a shorter range than the missiles launched in North Korea's most recent tests.

U.S. Pacific Command said it tracked the missile until it landed into the sea.

How much marijuana has been grown in Washington? Over 150,000 pounds of useable marijuana produced in fiscal year 2017 under Washington’s Legal System. Washington’s legal marijuana market is booming, which is resulting in a lot of cannabis being grown.

According to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, there has been 363,268 pounds (lbs) of marijuana harvested in fiscal year (FY) 2017, which began on July 1, 2016 and ends on June 30. Of this harvested marijuana, 155,494 lbs is considered “useable”, which is what is sold at marijuana retail outlets.

JOHN PILGER SPEAKS OUT ON JULIAN ASSANGE AND SWEDEN

The anti-war journalist and investigative reporter John Pilger has been a long time friend and supporter of fellow Australian Julian Assange. Assange, once the darling of the western liberal media when he exposed the war crimes of George W. Bush’s America,fell from their favour when he applied an equally vigorous amount of scrutiny to the war crimes, lies and lack of ethics of the Obama administration.

“Julian Assange has been vindicated because the Swedish case against him was corrupt. The prosecutor, Marianne Ny, obstructed justice and should be prosecuted. Her obsession with Assange not only embarrassed her colleagues and the judiciary but exposed the Swedish state’s collusion with the United States in its crimes of war and “rendition”.

Had Assange not sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, he would have been on his way to the kind of American torture pit Chelsea Manning had to endure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Julian Assange was never a criminal in my eyes; he was a witness to the truth of how the Deep American State does business, both domestically and internationally, and the reason he was, and is, so prosecuted, even unto this day.

Frequently, what those in the Bowels of Power in the Unhinged Surveilled States of America do, in the name of US hegemony, is both insane and morally reprehensible.

Is the Media’s Obsession with Trump and Russia a Distraction from Bigger Issues?

The entire media has been up in storm about the alleged intelligence leak by President Trump to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in a meeting in the Oval Office. The Washington Post, was the outlet that first broke the story, but closer examination reveals some disturbing details. For example, the Post notes that it withheld important information regarding said classified information, meaning that it also had access to the same information!

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at how the mainstream media’s intense focus on only one side of the story is being used to cover up the troubling minutiae. If the Post has access to this information, leaked by anonymous intelligence officials, are they not in similar violation? Further examination of the so-called classified intelligence information that was revealed shows that it may not be as classified as the media is hyping it up to be. What is the real truth here? Is there one? You bet there is!

Scott Adams: The Short Attention Span President

When I am listening to advice from others, 99% of the time I exhibit a short attention span. The other 1% of the time the advice is worthy of a listen. In that rare case, I can listen all day. Given the situation I just described, would you say I have a short attention span?

Suppose you give me a briefing book with thousands of facts and I only seem to care about three of those facts. And then I succeed at whatever I’m trying to do with my three facts. Given that set of circumstances, would you say I am incompetent?

Getting Assange: The Untold Story

It may have seemed that way, but there was always serious purpose. In 2008, a secret Pentagon document prepared by the “Cyber Counterintelligence Assessments Branch” foretold a detailed plan to discredit WikiLeaks and smear Assange personally.

The “mission” was to destroy the “trust” that was WikiLeaks’ “centre of gravity”. This would be achieved with threats of “exposure [and] criminal prosecution”. Silencing and criminalising such an unpredictable source of truth-telling was the aim.

Image result for wikileaks

Perhaps this was understandable. WikiLeaks has exposed the way America dominates much of human affairs, including its epic crimes, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq: the wholesale, often homicidal killing of civilians and the contempt for sovereignty and international law.

Preparing for the Collapse of the Petrodollar System, Part 2

In part one of this four part article series, I provided a background to our modern petrodollar system by explaining the "dollars for gold" arrangement that was put in place by global leaders through the Bretton Woods conference in the final days of World War II.

The article provided a brief evolution of the Bretton Woods agreement from its inception in 1944 to its ultimate demise in 1971. As detailed, in the late 1960's, this "dollars for gold" system had become unsustainable as Washington insisted upon the adoption of a "welfare state" that relied upon massive entitlements and a "warfare state" that required perpetual wars.

As an economist, I have been trained to view the world through the lens of incentives. (I am a "bottom line" kind of guy.) And just as every action is motivated by an underlying incentive, every decision has a related consequence.

This brief article details the actions, incentives, and related consequences that the United States has created through its attempts to maintain global hegemony through something known as the petrodollar system.

Paul Craig Roberts Laments "The Assault On Trump"

We are witnessing an assault by the national security state and its liberal media on a President of the United States that is unprecedented.

Wild and unsupported accusations of treasonous or illegal Russian connections have been the mainstay of the news since Trump’s campaign for president. These accusations have reached the point that there is an impeachment movement driven by the national security state and its liberal media and endorsed by Democrats, the American leftwing which has turned against the working class as “Trump deplorables,” and luminaries such as Harvard Law Professor Larry Tribe. The Washington Post, which was not present at the meeting of President Trump with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, purports to know that Trump gave Lavrov US national security information.

The Russian government has offered the presstitute media a transcript of the meeting, but, of course, the pressitutes are not interested.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We the People are no longer in any degree of control over domestic or foreign policy.

This is created by the corporations, who buy politicians to craft legislation in their favor, and the American Deep State, which is constantly striving to enhance US hegemony by any means necessary, including wars; assassinations; and regime changes.

But none of this is actually in the interests of We the People, because the cold, hard reality is, wars are generally economic in nature.

And, of course, Congress Members would be driven off and screamed at by friends and families of our dead military at the memorial services they might attend, if they mentioned once their thanks to that soldiers' sacrifice, so that companies like General Dynamics; Lockheed Martin; Kellogg Brown & Root could "make a killing", literally and financially.

This... is an ugly truth, but it is the truth.

War is murder, wrapped in a lovely flag, and not created for honour, courage, or "the American way of life", whatever that is these days; it is done to expropriate foreign resources to which neither the American government nor their pet corporations have any moral right; to make sure that the governments of the countries in which those resources exist are Western-centric, even if that means regime change; and to insure that those resources are only sold in American dollars.

That is what the pursuit of war by those hubristic monsters in the bowels of power in the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America is all about these days; and apparently, they don't think they will be getting quite enough of it to satiate their greed under President Trump, so they are plotting any possible way of "regime change" here at home, to cure the problem.

Never mind what the American people wanted, and why they voted for Trump; we have become, in their minds, totally irrelevant.

And in the most peaceful, logical way possible, that attitude has to be changed.

"We Did Not Touch On That At All": Lavrov Denies Trump Said "Comey Is A Nut Job"

"I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”
Predictably, the alleged exchange was the only thing on the media's mind during Lavrov's press conference on Saturday, in which the Russian Foreign Minister refuted claims that he had discussed the firing of the former FBI director Comey with President Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the nature of the industrial strength hatchet job we are seeing from the American Deep State and Democrats in Congress to demonize, and perhaps, remove President Trump from office, right now, if Lavrov has said the conversation on this subject never happened, I would strongly believe Lavrov over the lousily contrived, anonymous, and unattributed codswallop being manufactured against the President.

CNN Reports Comey Has Changed His Mind, Now Believes Trump Tried To Influence Him

Clearly disappointed to have been left out of the headline heroics from Friday night (courtesy of The Washington Post and The New York Times), CNN has decided that anon-sourced perspectives on officials' feelings now warrants reportage.

The latest in the sad sage of mainstream media's downward spiral, as The Hill reports, is that former FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify that he believes President Trump was deliberately trying to meddle in the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the presidential election, according to a report late Friday.

Despite swearing under oath that he "had never" been influenced during an investigation, and further that if he had he would have reported it immediately...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF ever CNN has revealed itself to be "The Clinton News Network", this deplorable, non-sourced, anonymous moment is absolute proof that such a thing is true.

Giant Plants of Southern Oregon

Jack would have forgot about the beanstalk if he was growing some of these seeds!

Oregon medical marijuana growers are allowed up to six plants per patient, and many patients grow for themselves. So if you’re an experienced and ambitious grower, but you’re only allowed half a dozen plants, what do you do? You grow them really, really big.

Under the Radar

The Pacific Northwest grows some of the world’s best marijuana, and legalization in Washington and Oregon has legitimized this rapidly expanding industry. Huge green crosses now advertise cannabis businesses along I-5, and the region’s green rush has been augmented by legalization in California, creating a sold green bloc of legal West Coast states. Competition has lowered prices, but the demand remains high, especially for organic, pesticide-free, medical-grade cannabis.

States look to bar protesters from blocking highways

Following a rise in public protests in recent years, especially around the election and inauguration of President Donald Trump, several states have passed or attempted to pass legislation to curb protests that spill onto highways and impede traffic. Tennessee and South Dakota have both passed laws pertaining to blocking highways with protests, while Iowa, North Carolina, Washington and Massachusetts each have legislation pending. Mississippi and Florida had legislation die before it reached the governors’ desks. Legislation in Minnesota and Arkansas has been vetoed by the respective governors.

Israeli Minister Hints At Coming War In Syria And Iran: “The Time Has Come To Assassinate Assad”

The Syrian situation is one that has been both fostered and created in part by the United States. ISIS is a creation of the American State Department under Obama. The U.S. wanted to take northwestern Syria to enable a natural gas pipeline to be run from Qatar into Europe. This would have accomplished several things. The move would have taken the monopoly away from Russian energy giant Gazprom by supplying gas to Europe via Qatar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As always, according to the politicians in Tel Aviv, it must be American blood and American money which must be sacrificed to achieve Israel's geopolitical goals in the Middle East, even if those goals do not serve US self-interests, whatsoever.

Pentagon an Eager Customer of Assassination Mini-Drones

Fighting umpteen wars around the world, the US special forces (SOCOM) is forever offering “urgent operational needs statements” for its various weapons. This newest one is a real eye-opener, as SOCOM is seeking 325 more Lethal Miniature Aerial Missile Systems (LMAMS).

LMAMS are not actually missiles so much as single-use drones, designed to be small, fast, and carry large explosive payloads. The drones are created with an eye toward assassination attacks against “high-value targets,” with US company AeroVironment, and some Israeli companies manufacturing various similar models.

This suggests that SOCOM has either already burned through 350 assassination drones in a disturbingly short time, or they plan on assassinating so many people in the near future that they don’t think what they have left is enough to cover it until they could order more through conventional channels

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Extrajudicial assassinations run so deeply against the core of true American values, I just don't know where to start.

However, I am very sure that the use of such weapons, in the Middle East and beyond, is a brilliant tool for radicalising those who are left behind, and to nearly insure that they will ultimately embrace jihad.

The use of such weapons, then, could well be characterised as an "insurance policy" to insure perpetual warfare for the US military to have to slam down.

What a wonderful "gift" for the US military/industrial complex!

"It's Absurd" - 6 Baltimore Schools Have Zero Students Proficient In State Math, English Tests

Baltimore schools spend a staggering $16,00 per student - the fourth-highest rate in the nation - and still an investigation by Fox45's Project Baltimore revealed that at six city schools, not one student scored proficient on either the statewide tests for English and math.

At West Baltimore's Frederick Douglass High, one of five high schools and one middle school where not one student scored a four or a five on the state test, only one out of 185 students who took the test last year scored a three, while 165 students scored a one, the lowest possible score.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only conclusion to which I can come, looking at these numbers, is that the dumbing down of American urban kids continues apace; and there is part of me that wonders how deliberate that is.

Because when kids are illiterate and innumerate, and cannot function, they have to become dependents of the state, for food, housing, and welfare.

People like this will never have an independent thought in their lives, and are easily manipulated to swallow and regurgitate anything the State tells them, no matter how logically absurd.

Anyone who ever saw the film "Stand and Deliver", based on a true-life story, where a high school math teacher in an urban high school, pushed his kids to be the best in math, and enter a competition, and go on to work at very high levels in math, understands how Baltimore's schools are failing their students.

Parents should be voting with their feet, and get their kids out of that city, and school district, and ASAP, if they have any aspirations of their kids achieving and accomplishing anything in their lives.
