Could Trump redefine the presidency?

Donald Trump may be a historic figure, but that does not mean he is easy to understand or anticipate. One thing is for sure – he has a unique style and form of communication.

LAWLESS SWEDEN: Lone migrant youths turn shopping centre into 'NO-GO ZONE', officials say

MIGRANT youth gangs have turned Sweden’s largest shopping centre into a “no-go zone” as they intimidate police, harass girls and deal drugs openly.

Gothenburg police have been forced implement extraordinary measures to cope with the increased number of incidents, which have left shoppers and business owners terrified of their workplace.

Nordstan is Sweden’s largest shopping centre in terms of sales and number of visitors, however once the shops close at 8pm, criminal youth gangs take over despite officers turning out in force.

GEORGE SOROS: THE MAN BEHIND THE MAYHEM

George Soros states that his overriding cause in everything he supports philanthropically is what he calls the creation of “open societies,” and he states that the one principle he believes can save humanity is pluralism. Without that, he believes we will destroy each other. He witnessed such destruction as a boy in Hungary under Hitler’s occupation where clearly pluralistic cultures were not embraced, and he states those years were formative to his character, as I imagine they would be.

Maybe that is what drives Soros to put enormous amounts of money into squeezing people together through immigration, even though he sees that it is creating stress fractures in his beloved European Union. Given the horrors that he witnessed as a child, his need to force pluralistic societies into being could be pathologically driven.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, for one, believe that all immigrants from Africa and the Middle East should only be allowed to live on Soros-owned and leased properties, so that he, too can be "culturally enriched".

DBRS Downgrades Italy, Stripping It Of Its Last "A Rating" And Raising ECB Collateral Haircuts

Update: sure enough, the Italian reaction didn't take long and as Bloomberg cited an Italian Treasury official, the decision won't impact the interest in Italian public debt. The "DBRS decision to downgrade Italy rating to BBB High from A Low could have impact on short-term debt, but that will be gauged only in coming months" and that the "rating change will not weigh significantly on cost of interests on Italy’s public debt."

When previewing the key events of the week, we noted that today Canadian DBRS rating agency is scheduled to review Italy's credit rating after putting its credit worthiness on negative watch on 5 August. On 5 December, DBRS issued a press release declaring that they would wait for the impact of the Italian referendum result on the continuation of the reform push before making the final decision.

After Tanks the Boots: Thousands of US Troops Touch Ground in Europe on Way to Russian Frontier

A US armored brigade (3rd Armored Brigade, 4th Infantry Division) is on the move to Russia's Baltic border. After its equipment begun arriving in Europe last week so now have its soldiers.

The move is so big it will require 37 trains and over one thousand rail cars to transport from Germany to Poland.

A US armored brigade fields over 400 tracked and over 1300 wheeled vehicles including 80 62-ton Abrams tanks, 140 Bradley armored fighting vehicles and 400 humvees.

Thousands of US Troops, Tanks Advance Toward Russian Border

Having arrived in Germany a few days ago, a mass of over 3,000 US ground troops backed by a large column of American tanks are advancing eastward toward the Russian border today, heading across Poland as part of a major NATO operation called Atlantic Resolve.

Unlike a lot of more specific war-games simulating explicit wars on certain fronts, Atlantic Resolve was initially launched just to spite Russia over the civil war in Eastern Ukraine, and seems to be designed more or less to simply antagonize Russia militarily.

And it’s doing it’s job, in that event, as Russian officials expressed serious concern over the matter, saying they believe the advance of a large number of US troops heading toward Russia is a threat to national security. They also added that they don’t appreciate having a large number of troops massed on their European border by a nation that isn’t even European.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg; your efforts at attempting to "...lock President-Elect Trump into a policy of hostility toward Russia." is headed toward an epic fail.

There's only one week before Trump gets inaugurated, and after that point, he and his team will, hopefully, make the right decisions for the future of this country vis a vis Russia, and I can tell you, with very little fear of contradiction, that their Russian policy will NOT be war-centric, as is NATO's.

Poland acquires missiles from USA that can strike deep inside Russian territory

A NATO Aegis Ashore ballistic missile defense site is to be positioned in Poland in 2018. A direct and provocative threat to Russia’s security.

Poland will host rapid response troops starting in 2017, and has demanded a permanent NATO base.

Not being reported by the main stream media…Poland has just sealed a deal to acquire 70 AGM-158B JASSM-ER (extended range) missiles from the United States, which boast an operational range of 1000+km and the capability of knocking out key stationary infrastructure sites located deep inside Russia’s territory.

The Neocon’s declaration of war against Trump

This is a political coup d’etat...an attempt at removing Donald Trump from the White House.

After several rather lame false starts, the Neocons have now taken a step which can only be called a declaration of war against Donald Trump.

It all began with CNN published an article entitled “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him”

Within one short week we went from allegations of “Russian hacking” to “having a traitor sitting in the White House”

SOUTHFRONT ACCUSED OF SUBVERTING POLISH GOVERNMENT

At issue is the Internet page Southfront.org. It published an article suggesting that the dismissals of Polish generals are the effect of the negative atmosphere within Poland’s Ministry of National Defense which supposedly prevailed after Antoni Macierewicz took over ministry. The author of the text slandering the Polish army and the defense chief is a Polityka reporter, and the text was translated and commented on by J.Hawk [That’s me!!! I’m famous now.] known in the Internet from pro-Russian activity [I prefer to think of it as simply reporting the news the CIA doesn’t want people to know]. Southfront.org is a platform headed by Putin trolls (sic), spreading Russian propaganda (sic), clearly anti-Western materials (sic), where it is difficult to find any criticism of the Putin regime (sic).

Desperate Eurozone to borrow BILLIONS to fund Greece rescue amid fears of crash

THE eurozone's bailout fund is borrowing tens of billions so it can fund a rescue plan for Greece, amid fears the country's debt crisis could once again send shockwaves through the bloc.

The Luxembourg agency responsible for doling out rescue money - the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) - is turning to markets to raise the extra cash needed for the Greek debt relief programme.

The ESM is now issuing €57billion (£49.5bn) in long-term bonds - up 14 per cent from original plans - to cover the bail-out programme.

However, Athens remains at loggerheads with creditors over the long term measures of the deal for fresh cash and debt relief - and the stand-off could last for weeks, as the two sides refuse to back down over controversial austerity measures.

Last month, the ESM froze short-term debt relief for the country, after prime minister Alexis Tsipras announced a one-off Christmas bonus for low-income pensioners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Austerity is always great for the banks, but lousy for the people it hits, like the Greek Pensioners.

And what happens if the ESM just cannot get the money, and the market is skittishly bearish on the concept?!?!?

Obama’s ‘Farewell To Arms’ As War Presidency Ends

Self-declared liberal Americans consider Bush to be a warmongering disaster, yet somehow they hail Obama as some kind of progressive «peace president».

Eight straight years of warmongering come to an end as US President Barack Obama bows out with his «farewell to the nation» speech this week, as fawning American media dubbed his valediction.

In reality, Obama’s outgoing address should have been billed as a «farewell to arms» made by arguably one of the most belligerent presidents to ever have occupied the White House.

Only in exceptionally delusional America could such a pernicious paradox be presented as something honorable and sentimental.

Two conflicting interpretations are suggested, says Cohen. Either Trump is about to become a potentially seditious American president. Or powerful US forces are trying to destroy his presidency before it begins, perhaps even prevent him from taking office.

US troops enter Poland, 1st deployment at Russia's doorstep

American soldiers rolled into Poland on Thursday, fulfilling a dream some Poles have had since the fall of communism in 1989 to have U.S. troops on their soil as a deterrent against Russia.

Some people waved and held up American flags as U.S. troops in tanks and other vehicles crossed into southwestern Poland from Germany and headed toward the town of Zagan, where they will be based. Poland's prime minister and defense minister will welcome them in an official ceremony Saturday.

"This is the fulfillment of a dream," said Michal Baranowski, director of the German Marshall Fund think tank in Warsaw. "And this is not just a symbolic presence but one with a real capability."

U.S. and other Western nations have carried out exercises on NATO's eastern flank in past years, but the new deployment — which includes some 3,500 U.S. troops — marks the first-ever continuous deployment to the region by a NATO ally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh yes, i am SURE the Poles go to sleep at night dreaming of the return of US occupation forces!

Russia never annexed Crimea; it was the the US/IMF/NATO putsch which threw the duly elected President of Ukraine under the proverbial bus in 2014 which made the Crimeans "deeply nervous", because there was no representative government in Kiev after the western-centric thug* Poroshenko was "anointed" as President in a election more crooked than a dog's hind leg.

Italian foreign minister speaks in favor of return to G8 format

Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano spoke on Tuesday in favor of getting back to the G8 format with the participation of Russia, ANSA news agency reports. "We must look towards Russia rejoining the G8 but we still don't know if it will be possible by May," the news agency quoted him as saying. However, speaking about Russia’s possible return to G8 "would be premature now, because you first have to start with an assessment of the enactment of the Minsk Accords," he added. Italy assumed the rotating presidency of G7 on January 1. Earlier reports said the G7 leaders planned to discuss the issue of retaining sanctions against Russia at their next summit, due in Italy in May.

NATO Report Blames Russia for Populism Worldwide

A new report from NATO is following a narrative trend which began in the US and has since spread across Western Europe, accusing Russia of being to blame for the rise of populism worldwide, as an effort to undermine NATO and the European Union.

This fits into the hysteria surrounding “fake news” in recent months, with the idea that Russia is to blame for the rise in alternative media outlets which are not as supportive of the idea of globalism. The “anti-globalism” idea positioned the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the US election as the fall of Western liberalism, putative a long-standing Russian priority.

Experts, of course, will note the rise of Euroskepticism across EU nations is largely concurrent with serious policy disputes within the EU itself, and that a simpler explanation than a far-reaching Russian plot is simply that many EU citizens don’t see the union as the panacea it was initially sold to them as.

Poland Has Launched a Huge Military Build Up Aimed at Russia

It should be noted that quite often the most interesting arms contracts escape media attention. That’s how it was in 2016. Signing a multi-billion-dollar military aid package between the United States and Israel and the subsequent White House approval for long-awaited fighter sales to the Middle East hit the radar screen. In late September, the US approved the sales of Boeing fighters worth a total of around $7 billion to Kuwait and Qatar. First mooted around two years ago, the deals had been held up by the US government due to Israeli concerns and in order to smooth the way for nuclear talks with Iran. The same month, a $38-billion Israeli arms package over the next 10 years - the largest of its kind ever – was finalized and signed. The news about those contacts was a real scoop hitting the headlines of all mainstream media outlets. In late November, the State Department approved another transaction- the acquisition of 70 AGM-158B JASSM-ER (extended range) missiles for Poland.

US tanks pour into Eastern Europe: What can Putin and Trump do?

On Friday, January 6th, hundred of tanks, trucks, and other military vehicles from America were unloaded at the German port of Bremerhaven. The Resolve transport ship delivered the load as part of the deployment of the US’ 3rd armored brigade combat group of the 4th infantry division in Eastern Europe. On January 8th, two more American transport ships, Freedom and Endurance, arrived with loads at Germany’s coast. In Bremerhaven, the military vehicles are being loaded onto rail cars to be sent to their deployment destinations via Germany and Poland. According to the Bundeswehr, transporting the forces requires as many as 900 train cars with a total length of 14 kilometers. It is expected that the American troops will be taken first to Romania, Bulgaria, and Lithuania. The Pentagon has not reported their exact destinations... The decision to deploy this third brigade in Europe has come at a great cost to the Pentagon.

Dutch court blocks access to data gathered by independent journalists in Donbass

A Dutch court has blocked police access to the data seized from independent journalists after their return from Ukraine’s troubled Donbass, one of the affected journalists, freelancer Michel Spekkers, told Tass on Monday. He said the Dutch Journalists Union intervened, and several hours after the equipment had been confiscated, the court banned access to the data. "That means they cannot access it anymore until judge orders them to do so," he said. "But it is political, and you never know when it becomes political what they will or will not do. But I hope they will respect the law and I will get my data back," he added. "But they had few hours when there was no court order and they still could have a look at it. I don't know what happened within that timeframe," he stated...

Pentagon Vows More European Wargames to ‘Deter Russia’

Despite the incoming president-elect making a normalization of diplomatic ties with Russia a top priority, the Pentagon continues to move forward with bigger and more complicated wargames, vowing to continue coming up with ever more such operations to “deter Russian aggression.”

Lt. Gen. Tim Ray, the deputy commander of Eurocom, insisted that the ongoing wargames, which involve the US deploying large numbers of tanks into Germany to practice massing large numbers of tanks in a single place, was vital to “ensure the territorial integrity of our allies and maintain a Europe that is whole, free, prosperous, and at peace.”

Since regime change in Ukraine saw a Russian ally replaced with a Western-backed president, tensions have been on the rise between NATO and Russia, with US officials hyping the idea that Russia could invade Eastern Europe at any moment, and throwing large numbers of troops into the area to fight in that war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one question I would like to ask of Lt. Gen. Tim Ray is, why would Russia do something that stupid?!?

Because the short answer is, President Putin wouldn't!!

The anti-Russian hysteria coming out of DC is falling on deaf ears, as every accusation made by the residents of "Foggy Bottom" continues to not be borne out by incontrovertible proof, or proof of any kind whatsoever.

Russia is not going to invade Eastern Europe, and, if anything, militarily, is responding to the NATO build-up of troops around its borders.

Austria: Foreign Minister Kurz wants to relax anti-Russian sanctions

The Austrian government wants to achieve a relaxation of the EU sanctions that were imposed on Russia for the Ukraine crisis. The Austrian government will press for this in the OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe), says its Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz in an interview with Der Speigel. In the new year, Germany's neighboring state assumes the OSCE Chairmanship. The Christian Socialist politician said: "We need to build confidence in Europe again and so far as sanctions are concerned, move away from a system of punishment to a system of incentive." Kurz will now use his country's OSCE chairmanship to put the issue of Russia sanctions on the agenda again: "We should gradually relax the sanctions for any positive development on the ground." Since the outbreak of the Ukraine crisis there was a return to the block thinking of the cold war, he said. Therefore there needs to be "a trend reversal" in relation to Russia.

This is reported by the daily Die Standard, which in turn refers to a study by the Austrian Institute for Economic Research (Wifo). Overall, the Wifo calculated a drop in economic output by 17.6 billion euros for the year 2015. Germany and France are the most affected.The European sanctions against Russia have especially hit Germany, according to the Wifo. In 2015, German economic output had contracted by slightly more than six billion euros. An estimated 97,000 jobs were destroyed.
In neighboring Austria, the economic output in 2015 was down about 550 million euros. There, approximately 7,000 employment relationships were dissolved...

Political Insanity: Outgoing President Obama’s “Operation Atlantic Resolve” against Russia: US Sends 3,600 Tanks Against Russia – Massive NATO Deployment Underway

Obama's last treasonous act! Destroy America!

Hundreds Of US Tanks Arrive In Europe To Support NATO Anti-Russian Buildup

As we reported yesterday, Lithuania confirmed the presence of U.S. special forces inside its territory, stating the deployment’s purpose is to train local forces and act as a deterrent against Russian aggression. Supposedly, the move is in response to a "escalation" by Vladimir Putin, who has been deploying nuke-ready missiles in the Russian province of Kaliningrad located in the heart of central Europe. This move has prompted the neighboring Baltic states to become “highly concerned” about Russian military activity.

Furthermore, sometime during the spring of 2017, NATO is expected to send battalions of 800 to 1,200 troops to each of the Baltic States and Poland. The mainstream media has even dubbed NATO’s recent buildup the alliance’s “biggest military buildup on Russia’s borders since the Cold War.” Even Great Britain will be sending fighter jets, as well as troops to Romania in order to counter Russia in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This buildup is insane, and doesn't augur well for peace in the region, or the for the world.

Anti-Russia “Fake News” Campaign Rolled out Across Europe. Moscow Tagged as a Sponsor of ISIS-Daesh

This is the content of the resolution passed by the European Parliament on November 23, on “EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties.” The declared aim of the extensive resolution is to combat “third-party actors aiming to discredit” the European Union (EU) that “do not share the same [European] values.”

The resolution then defines as the main “actors” Russia and Daesh (or ISIL) and it is Russia that occupies most of the resolution.

It equates Russia with “transnational terrorist and criminal organisations…” that have “repeatedly engaged in a strategy of deliberate deception and disinformation, especially in the ‘new media’, social networks and the digital sphere…”

Accusing Russia of “information warfare”, the resolution asserts that it “is employing a wide range of tools and instruments” to “challenge democratic values, divide Europe, gather domestic support and create the perception of failed states in the EU’s eastern neighbourhood…”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the EU: with these accusations regarding Russia, you have REALLY "jumped the shark", and have become totally irrelevant and useless to the futures of the countries you allegedly represent.

And to conflate Russia with ISIS?!?

Please, have you all gone absolutely barking mad, to use this analogy?!?

Kindly get your collective heads out of a very dark, unpleasant place, and sniff some sunshine, for heaven's sake!!

Russia is not the problem here; it is the dissatisfaction of Europeans having to live with the regulations of the out-of-touch, tone-deaf and blind EU Eurocrats in Brussels which has caused a populist uprising, and a very strong desire to break free of an economic and financial system which is great for large corporate banking and taxing entities, but lousy for the people living in the countries which comprise the EU.

I do not know how much longer the EU, or the Euro, will actually survive; but my sense is, without a major war, fronted by NATO and the US against Russia, it will ultimately have to collapse of its own weight, as the basic international understandings which created it were based on false assumptions.

It is the "fake news", regurgitated by corporate presstitutes to further government agendas, worldwide, which get people killed.

Do any of you Eurocrats remember what happened after the US government accused Saddam Hussein of "having weapons of mass destruction"?!?

I rest my case.

Obama's "mine" Trump: Sends to Europe launchers "Vulkan" sowing mines from helicopters

BY spokesperson for the Pentagon, leaving the Obama administration has expressed its readiness to deploy the system in Europe "Volcano", which the armed forces of the United States used since 1995 to quickly set up mines through their throws from a specially equipped helicopter, as well as from vehicle wheels and tracks .

In accordance with the concept of the system, and anti-anti-personnel mines are placed in a special multi-barrel rocket launchers mounted on the aforementioned carriers: by 960 per helicopter mines and 160 mines per vehicle, and then throw on different sides during the ride.

Such a quantity of mines to be in a fairly short period of time forming large areas of mine fields, which prevent access to potential opponents a large military facilities, and large concentrations of troops and military equipment.

The emergence of 'Volcano' in Europe can hardly lead to a radical change in the balance of power on the European continent.

What the %&*# Are US Troops Doing in Lithuania on Russia's Border?

The poor helpless Baltic state of Lithuania, languishing under constant terror of Russian invasion, has just received much need reinforcement courtesy of lame-duck Obama's Pentagon... This comes as a welcome relief. Especially since Lithuania has you know, a big long border with hostile Russia. Oh never mind - they don't... Yeah there's Kaliningrad (the small part of Russia west of Lithuania), but the idea Russia could launch an invasion of NATO from the small exclave, or amass troops (which would have to come by sea and air) without being detected, is ludicrous. Of course, whenever Russia does invade Lithuania, Moscow seems to punish the Lithuanians (like the Ukrainians) by rewarding them with increased territory. After Stalin annexed Lithuania in 1940, he bolstered the fledgling republic with a large swath of former Polish territory - including their current capital Vilnius - formerly the Polish city of Wilno.

You are fired: New Socialist President of Moldova fires pro-NATO Defense Minister

The President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, former head of the Socialist Party of Moldova, signed a decree on the resignation of Defense Minister Anatol Salaru, he announced on Facebook. "The Minister flirted with NATO, knowing full well that, under the Constitution, Moldova is a neutral state. He was behind the appearance of American military equipment at the Great National Assembly square on Victory Day, which can be qualified not only as a provocation. He openly advocated for the unification of Moldova with Romania, which is also unacceptable. In addition, he fired a solid number of professionals from defense and state security, replacing them with pro-Liberal party supporters of the unionist ideology," - wrote Igor Dodon. As reported, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Filip have signed an agreement to open a NATO office in Chisinau.

BUILDING TOTALITARIANISM IN EUROPE – THE LAST COUP OF VICTORIA NULAND

Victoria Nuland, the US Assistant Secretary of State, did not spend much time and energy with Christmas and New Year celebrations this year. She has another very urgent and pressing problem to solve, before leaving the State Department, and this is the “Cyprus conflict”. The way she wants to solve this conflict is by transforming a second member of the EU, after Greece, into a protectorate. As the proposed solution for Cyprus is higlhy unstable, powers outside the EU will be provided also with a bomb inside it, that is with the possibillity of provoking a Bosnian-type conflict inside, not outside EU borders.

2016: The Year of Russia’s Triumph – The Saker

2016 has been a fantastic year for Russia. Putin’s policy of slow, low-key and deliberate move and counter-move has proven to be extremely effective.

Just like European maps place Europe in the center of the planet, so do most western commentators look at the past year from a US/Europe-centered perspective. Which is fair enough. Furthermore, the AngloZionist Empire has just suffered two major disasters, the Brexit and the election of Trump.

The credit for the election of Donald Trump goes first and foremost to the American people to whom I sincerely believe the entire planet owe a heartfelt and loud “THANK YOU!!!!!”.

Not only did the British people defy the Empire and vote for a Brexit, but now the Imperial Homeland has “backstabbed” them by electing a patriot who is not interested in maintaining the global empire (or so he says, at least for the time being).

President Putin made a surprise attack:

He said that his government would not take retaliatory measures. Indeed, he went further by offering seasonal goodwill greetings to President Obama, his family and the people of America, as well as repeating invitations to the children of accredited US diplomats in Russia to festivities being held at the Kremlin.
