The Psycho Revealed: Trumpenstein Removes His Mask

I think the Russians have finally reached the same conclusion that many of us have: we are dealing with a bloodthirsty, utterly delusional psychopath who’s drunk on power, surrounded by like-minded psychopaths, enablers and apologists of every stripe, and being egged on by a Satanic, Jewish-supremacist death cult.

Israel Rock Syria With Airstrikes Overnight, Bypassing Russian Defences

Israeli jets pounded targets in Damascus, Syria overnight, according to reports from Lebanon and the Jerusalem Post, escalating an already volatile situation and leading experts to claim “retaliation is inevitable.”

According to Lebanese media, the targets that were hit by Israeli missiles were affiliated with the Assad government and were the regime army’s 3rd Division in the al-Katif suburbs of the capital.

The report also claimed that the Israel Defense Force struck from within Lebanon, circling the Beqaa Valley and Baalbek, so as not to be blocked by the Russian defense systems protecting the Syrian capital from attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suspect Russia held back from interfering out of a desire not to escalate the conflict with the US. But Israel is a fool if they rely on that for more attacks.

Tears of a Clown Over Syrian Deaths

Boris Johnson, Britain's foreign secretary, likes to clown around, even by his own admission. So much so, it seems, that when news emerged last week of an alleged massacre of children choking from chemical weapons in Syria, Johnson was still up for jolly-good fun.

Take a look at the above picture again. This was taken at a summit in Brussels last week when some 70 nations assembled in the Belgian capital pledging financial aid for war-torn Syria. Britain's top diplomat Boris Johnson was central to the proceedings.

On the very same day, it emerged from Syria that more than 80 people, including dozens of children, were killed in an alleged chemical weapons incident in the town of Khan Shaykhun, Idlib Province. The politicians in Brussels immediately made political capital on the deaths.

US oligarchs have taken control of Trump administration: Analyst

The American oligarchs have taken control of the administration of US President Donald Trump, and now are pursuing a pro-Israel policy, says E. Michael Jones, a political analyst in Indiana.

Jones, a writer, former professor, media commentator and the current editor of the Culture Wars magazine, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Tuesday.

The US military fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at al-Shayrat airbase in Homs province in western Syria on April 7. Trump said he had ordered the strike in response to the April 4 chemical attack in the Arab country that he blamed on the Syrian government.

Trump aide drew plan on napkin to partition Libya into three

A senior White House foreign policy official has pushed a plan to partition Libya, and once drew a picture of how the country could be divided into three areas on a napkin in a meeting with a senior European diplomat, the Guardian has learned.

Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to Donald Trump under pressure over his past ties with Hungarian far-right groups, suggested the idea of partition in the weeks leading up to the US president’s inauguration, according to an official with knowledge of the matter. The European diplomat responded that this would be “the worst solution” for Libya.

Gorka is vying for the job of presidential special envoy to Libya in a White House that has so far spent little time thinking about the country and has yet to decide whether to create such a post.

Haley: ‘Russia said no’ to peace in Syria

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Wednesday blasted Russia for vetoing a Security Council draft resolution to condemn the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons attack last week.

The U.S., United Kingdom and France put forward a resolution to denounce the deadly attack at the hands of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s regime.

Syria's Assad says chemical attack '100 percent fabrication'

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said a suspected chemical weapons attack was a "fabrication" to justify a US military strike, as Moscow digs in to defend its ally despite increasing strains with Washington.

In an exclusive interview with AFP in Damascus -- his first since the alleged April 4 attack prompted a US air strike on Syrian forces -- Assad said his army had given up all its chemical weapons and that Syrian military power was not affected by the US strike.

"Definitely, 100 percent for us, it's fabrication," he said in the interview on Wednesday in reference to the alleged chemical weapons attack.

Army Command: Hundreds, including many civilians, killed in in coalition airstrike on ISIS toxic materials depot

13 April 13 2017

Damascus, SANA- The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said on Thursday that hundreds were killed, including a large number of civilians, due to an air strike carried out by aircrafts of the so-called US-led international coalition against a huge depot for ISIS terrorist organization that includes toxic materials in the village of Hatla in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor province.

In a statement on Thursday, the General Command said aircrafts of the international coalition carried out between 17:30 and 17:50 pm on Wednesday an air strike against a position of ISIS terrorists that includes a large number of foreign mercenaries in the village of Hatla to the east of Deir Ezzor, causing a white cloud that soon turned into yellow as a result of the explosion of a huge depot that includes a large amount of toxic materials.

WHY IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IRAN OR NORTH KOREA (OR ANYONE ELSE) HAS A NUCLEAR BOMB

Those that insist that Iraq's weapons of mass destruction were a threat that justified invasion, or that Iran's or North Korea's weapons of mass destruction are a threat that justifies new invasions, are in essence admitting that the US Government took $5 trillion of your money (over $17,000 from each of you alive today) in a gigantic swindle, because the $5 trillion nuclear deterrent isn't a deterrent after all, that it doesn't work, that nobody is really afraid of it, because they all know it was just a hoax to soak the American taxpayer for another several thousand dollars.

Was it all a hoax, Mr. Trump? Did the American people foot a $5 trillion bill in 1950s dollars for a deterrent system that isn't really a deterrent?

Syria says U.S.-led airstrikes hit IS-controlled chemical weapons depot in eastern Syria

Hundreds of civilians dead.Hypocrites and liars the US leadership are.

DAMASCUS, April 13 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian army on Thursday said the U.S.-led anti-terror coalition struck a chemical weapons depot controlled by the Islamic State (IS) group in eastern Syria, killing hundreds, including civilians.

The U.S.-led airstrikes targeted the big depot containing chemical materials in the town of Hatleh in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour on Wednesday, said the army in a statement.

It added that large numbers of civilians were among those killed due to the suffocation caused by the spread of the toxic materials.

‘Riskier than striking Syria’: Beijing warns US against attacking North Korea

China has warned the US against using military force against North Korea, after a surprise redeployment of an aircraft carrier group. Washington’s regional allies said they expect it to consult with them before any action.

Tension is mounting in the region as US President Donald Trump said he would solve the “North Korean problem” with or without China’s help.

The paper said Washington needs to accept the reality that it “has no power to put global affairs in order at the moment” and work with other leading world powers on the Korean situation through the UN Security Council, a body that the US has shun by the unilateral attack against Syria.

Mattis: Navy Strike Group Not Headed to North Korea for Any Reason

A Picard and Rivero palm to forehead moment!

With a US carrier strike group steaming toward North Korea, and top administration officials talking up the need for the US to “solve” North Korea, Russian officials today echoed a concern shared by a lot of people, that the US is about to unilaterally attack North Korea.

Defense Secretary James Mattis sought to downplay those concerns, however, insisting the carrier strike group is just in the western Pacific in general, and isn’t speeding rapidly toward the Korean Peninsula for any particular reason, and has nothing in mind when it gets there.

USA Sends the Korean Peninsula a Submarine with 154 MISILES Tomahawk


The US Navy Group Deployed near the Korean coast could include at least one Ohio-type submarine with 154 Tomahawk missiles.

The Ohio nuclear submarine joined the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier group on April 9 in the waters off the Korean Peninsula, Russian source Lenta told a Russian security source familiar with the situation.

"We have our own data on the movements of US forces and submarine forces between them. At least one submersible is located in the western part of the Pacific Ocean in an area that allows the launching of missiles against targets in the territory of Korea Of the North, "said the portal's interlocutor.

It was also said that one modified Ohio type rocket carrier carrying 154 Tomahawk type missiles on board joined the US Navy deployed near the coast of the Korean Peninsula. The missile carrier is expected to arrive at the port of registration on April 18.

Xi advises Trump to be Peaceful

This guy sounds like a Statesman and he is to the point.

Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke on the phone with U.S. President Donald Trump Wednesday and emphasized that conflict on the Korean Peninsula has to be resolved through peaceful means, after Trump reiterated that he was ready to solve the North Korean nuclear issue on his own.

China's state-run broadcaster CCTV reported that Xi and Trump held a phone conversation Wednesday morning Asia time to discuss the situation on the Korean Peninsula and other matters of bilateral concern, five days after their summit last week. The CCTV report was issued shortly after the conversation.

Xi was reported to have told Trump, China adheres to the goal of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and calls for peaceful means to resolve the problem in order to safeguard the peace and stability of the region.

U.S. INTELLIGENCE SOURCE: SYRIA CHEMICAL WEAPONS ATTACK LAUNCHED FROM SAUDI BASE

Award-winning Iran-Contra journalist Robert Parry says the chemical weapons attack in Syria was launched from a joint Saudi-Israeli special operations base in Jordan, according to his intelligence sources.

U.S. intelligence analysts determined that a drone was responsible for the attack and “eventually came to believe that the flight was launched in Jordan from a Saudi-Israeli special operations base for supporting Syrian rebels,” according to the source.

“The suspected reason for the poison gas was to create an incident that would reverse the Trump administration’s announcement in late March that it was no longer seeking the removal of President Bashar al-Assad,” writes Parry.

Not only did Sean Spicer say that Hitler never used chemical weapons, but Secretary of Defense Mattis said:

But U.S. used chemical weapons against civilians in Iraq in 2004. Evidence here, here, here, here, here, here. The use of those weapons greatly increased the rate of birth defects.

The U.S. armed and supported Iraq after it invaded Iran and engaged in a long, bloody war which included the use of chemical weapons. The U.S. provided chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein to use against Iran.

Scott Adams: The North Korea Reframe

Prior U.S. presidents framed the North Korean nuclear program as a problem between the United States and North Korea, with China as an unhelpful third party with its own interests. That framing was weak and useless. North Korea did whatever it wanted to do.

President Trump recently changed the frame. Now it’s not so much a problem between the United States and North Korea as it is a branding battle between China and the U.S., with North Korea being the less-important part of the equation. President Trump has said clearly and repeatedly that if China doesn’t fix the problem in its own backyard, the USA will step in to do what China couldn’t get done.

See the power in that framing? China doesn’t want a weak “brand.”

"I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner. We're now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, during an interview that aired on Wednesday morning.

“It's so incredible. It's brilliant. It's genius. Our technology, our equipment, is better than anybody by a factor of five. I mean look, we have, in terms of technology, nobody can even come close to competing,” said Trump.

Trump spoke of a “great feeling” between himself and Xi, who he “really likes being with,” at least officially.

Tillerson is frozen out in Moscow: Two hours of talks with Putin end with nothing to show as Kremlin refuses to admit Assad gassed his own people - then lecture him on Iraq and Libya

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is leaving Moscow empty-handed following two hours of frosty talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Putin met with Tillerson on Wednesday after yo-yoing the American diplomat around for days.

The talk came hours after the Kremlin's foreign minister accused the US of launching an 'unlawful attack' on Syria that was 'extremely worrying' as talks with Tillerson got off to a frosty start.

Putin separately said that trust between the two countries had eroded since last week's air assault, casting a cloud over Washington's ambitions to coordinate militarily with Russia in Iraq to defeat ISIS. It had also hoped to entice Russia into dropping out of its alliance with Syria.

Hardball Diplomacy: Why Trump's Show of Force Leaves Beijing Unimpressed

The Chinese have deployed upwards of 150,000 troops to the Yalu under the pretext they are all medical personnel,or at least that is what the idiots in dc want to believe.

The timing of Donald Trump's strike on Syria was aimed at sending a strong signal to Beijing, Malaysian geopolitical analyst Mathew Maavak told Sputnik. The geopolitical analyst explained why Trump's "hardball diplomacy" left the Chinese leadership unimpressed.
Surprisingly, Xi remained silent in response to the show of force.

"If the intention was to intimidate China over North Korea's nuclear sabre-rattling, then Beijing will likely raise the stakes by providing an additional economic lifeline to Pyongyang," the Malaysian analyst suggested."

Tulsi Gabbard: ‘We Need to Learn from Iraq and Libya’ Before Intervening in Syria

On Tuesday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) wrote an email to The Hill, pushing back against criticism of her criticism of President Donald Trump’s missile strike in Syria.
The Hill chopped the headline down to “We Need to Learn From Iraq,” even though what Gabbard actually said was, “We need to learn from Iraq and Libya,” questioning not only President George W. Bush’s policy in Iraq but the Obama administration’s intervention in Syria.

The main thrust of Gabbard’s email to The Hill is an argument against military intervention. She evidently used the email to lay it out in a clean and simple fashion.

“We need to learn from Iraq and Libya – wars that were propagated as necessary to relieve human suffering, but actually increased human suffering many times over,” she wrote.

"The System Itself Is Beyond Repair"

Last Thursday’s wanton attack on a Syrian air field by the US and its bellicose actions toward North Korea have brought to the forefront the real cost of candidate Trump’s landslide victory last November.

Unlike most laymen, accountants, and financial analysts, economists look at cost differently. For economists, cost or more specifically, “opportunity cost,” means “a benefit that a person could have received, but gave up, to take another course of action. Stated differently, opportunity cost represents an alternative given up when a decision is made.”

Such thinking can be roughly applied to the political realm. In the case of last fall’s US Presidential election, the cost of Donald Trump’s unexpected victory was not the money spent on the campaign, but the diffusion (hopefully, only temporary) of the growing anti-Establishment groundswell that was percolating not only in America, but across the globe.

Is Trump Enlisting in the War Party?

By firing off five dozen Tomahawk missiles at a military airfield, our “America First” president may have plunged us into another Middle East war that his countrymen do not want to fight.

Thus far Bashar Assad seems unintimidated. Brushing off the strikes, he has defiantly gone back to bombing the rebels from the same Shayrat air base that the U.S. missiles hit.

Trump “will not stop here,” warned U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday. “If he needs to do more, he will.”

If Trump fails to back up Haley’s threat, the hawks now cheering him on will begin deriding him as “Donald Obama.”

But if he throbs to the war drums of John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio and orders Syria’s air force destroyed, we could be at war not only with ISIS and al-Qaida, but with Syria, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah.

A Syrian war would consume Trump’s presidency.

US support of Syrian rebel factions has enlarged and intensified the conflict to the detriment of Syrian civilians. An escalation of hostilities with the Syrian Government risks a broader regional war including confrontation with Russia. This conflict is not in the interest of the American people and further, military strikes against a sovereign nation without a declaration of war is a war crime under international law, and in violation of the Constitution. Immediately cease all hostilities against the Syrian Government including airstrikes and the equipping and training of Syrian rebels.

Now he’s turned on a dime, bombing Syria, and welcoming tiny (and troubled) Montenegro into NATO. His intelligence agencies are even accusing Russia of having advance knowledge of the alleged chemical attack in Syria (although the White House disputed that after it got out). And all this in the first one hundred days!

How did this happen? It’s easy to explain, once you understand that there is no such thing as foreign policy: all policy is domestic.

Leftists Accuse Sean Spicer of Holocaust Denial After He Argues Assad Gassing Worse Than Hitler

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a press conference on Tuesday that Hitler did not use chemical weapons during WWII, arguing that Russia would be on the wrong side of history in supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. This sparked a clamor online of people quick to point out the existence of the gas chambers used to murder millions in concentration camps.

North Korea warns of nuclear strike if provoked; Trump 'armada' steams on

North Korean state media warned on Tuesday of a nuclear attack on the United States at any sign of American aggression, as a U.S. Navy strike group steamed toward the western Pacific - a force U.S. President Donald Trump described as an "armada".

Trump, who has urged China to do more to rein in its impoverished ally and neighbor, said in a Tweet that North Korea was "looking for trouble" and the United States would "solve the problem" with or without Beijing's help.

He cited the lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that did not exist but, nevertheless, were the excuse for launching a war there. He says there will be more attacks, because Trump is told they are real, and they pressure him to react with military action.

THE SILVER LINING OF TRUMP’S OWNERSHIP OF REGIME CHANGE POLICY IN SYRIA

On a positive note, it has been a good development that the Trump administration has owned the “regime change” policy of the Obama administration in Syria by launching cruise missiles strike against the Syrian air force in al-Shayrat air base. Because over the decades, it has been a convenient stratagem of the Western powers with two-party political systems, particularly the US, to evade responsibility for the death and destruction brought on the hapless Middle Eastern countries by their predecessors after the elections.

A Multi-Level Analysis of the US Cruise Missile Attack on Syria and Its Consequences

The latest US cruise missile attack on the Syrian airbase is an extremely important event in so many ways that it is important to examine it in some detail. I will try to do this today with the hope to be able to shed some light on a rather bizarre attack which will nevertheless have profound consequences. But first, let’s begin by looking at what actually happened.

However, since the Russians were warned about the attack they had plenty of time to prepare their electronic warfare stations to “fry” and otherwise disable at least part of the cruise missiles. I do believe that this is the correct explanation.

Iran the Destabilizer: A world in turmoil, thank you Mr. Trump!

Philip Giraldi • April 11, 2017

The real Donald Trump has been exposed. The man who promised a sensible and non-interventionist Middle Eastern policy and a reset with Moscow has now reneged on both pledges. His nitwit United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has directly linked Russia and Syria for punishment by the omnipotent Leader of the Free World lest anyone be confused.

The unconscionable attack on Syria based on the usual unsubstantiated allegations has shifted the playing field dramatically, with the “new sheriff in town” apparently intent on proving he is a real man who can play hardball with the rest of them. Last week Syria was blamed by all and sundry in the Establishment for an alleged chemical weapons attack just two days after the White House backed away from the Obama Administration demand that President Bashar al-Assad be removed.

President Trump, with respect, start ruthlessly purging the U.S. general officer corps

Last time we discussed your refusal to abide by the Constitution’s hard-and-fast war-making provision, a decision that merits — as it did for most of your post-1945 predecessors — impeachment proceedings. Waging war in the manner you did in Syria is the work of an absolute monarch or a dictator, not that of a popularly elected president of this republic.

Today, we must discuss a topic that has been covered in this space on multiple occasions; namely, the need for you to immediately purge — via forced retirement — scores of your general officers. The American fetish for treating these officers as god-like wonders is baseless, and must be curtailed to the greatest possible extent. Among the most obvious reasons they merit forced retirement are:

–They and their predecessors have not won a war since 1945. In truth, they have won nothing in the most war-filled 72 years in American history.

Vladimir Putin says US is preparing to bomb Syrian capital and will blame devastation on Bashar-al Assad's forces

Vladimir Putin has sensationally claimed that the US is preparing airstrikes on the Syrian capital - and will pin the blame on Bashar-al Assad's forces.

The Russian leader made the astonishing claim - that the US is planning to FAKE chemicals weapons attacks - during a joint press conference with the Italian President Sergio Mattarella.

Putin insisted Russia would tolerate Western criticism of its role in Syria but hoped that attitudes would eventually soften.

But his claims that Russia has information strikes are being planned by the US on the southern Damascus region - the aim of which is to blame the resulting devastation on the subsequently discredited Syrian government - will not go down well in the White House.

Last week, the US Navy launched Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Ash Sha’irat military airfield operated by the Syrian Air Force near the city of Homs. The launch followed a large-scale media campaign aimed at blaming the Assad government for an alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun. The move was described by the mainstream media as a justified response to criminal actions of the Assad regime. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that “steps are underway” on an international coalition to pressure the Syrian president from power. It is worth noting that no investigation was made by the US-led block to confirm these accusations. Despite this, a number of countries, including the UK, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia expressed their full support to the US military actions.

Pieczenik Explodes: Issues Warning To Trump, Mattis AND McMaster About Going To War In Syria

America's foremost expert in international affairs, having served under 5 Presidents, instrumental in the Camp David accords, in addition to playing a key role in regime changes around the globe for decades, Dr. Steve Pieczenik exploded with rage on the Alex Jones show yesterday -- warning Trump and his team that war crimes would follow if they pursued a neocon agenda of war in Syria, which the American people do not want.

"This is a warning to our generals, Mcmaster, and others, who think they can do a regime change in Syria. Number one, that will not be possible, not with the military, not with all the forces you have and not with the quality of the soldiers you have, the generals. Any notion of a regime change through force is both absurd or criminal. The issue of Syria and Assad have no national security interests to us at all. This will be an incredible dereliction of duty if we go to war in Syria."

It was less clear what the consequences would be for a government that helped Assad and his allies succeed in their six-year war with Syrian opposition groups.

Russian President Vladimir Putin immediately refused to back down, saying Russia knew about organised "provocations" to blame Syria's government for using chemical weapons, and urged the UN to investigate the attack.

Putin told reporters: "It reminds me of the events in 2003 when US envoys to the Security Council were demonstrating what they said were chemical weapons found in Iraq. We have seen it all already."

TRUMP, AND SYRIA: A RANT

It’s difficult for me to write this blog, not because I came late, and reluctantly, to support the Trump candidacy, but rather because in the cloud of bitterness, sadness, and outrage over the missile attacks on Syria, it’s difficult for me to articulate the full spectrum of my reasons, let alone my anger and sense of complete betrayal. In a nutshell, it appears to me that Mr. Trump is within a few decimal points of full-scale, Hillary Clinton type megalomania and insanity, and has succumbed to the same evil spirit that seems to infest all of Washington and America’s national political class. Those are strong words, and I mean every one of them in full measure (and particularly that part about the evil spirit infesting and investing Washington). And I’m just getting started.

Syria and North Korea: Two Steps in Trump's War on China?

According to American media, the Donald Trump Administration has sent an aircraft carrier battle group to the Korean coast. Reuters has cited a source in the White House asserting that, in so doing, the US is responding to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s nuclear program’s ballistic missile testing. Naturally, the question arises: does the White House not want to repeat what has been done in Syria in the case with North Korea? Let’s discuss this.

I originally argued that one of the key objectives of the attack on Syria was a show of force for Trump’s negotiations with Xi Jinping, who was in the US at the time. Of course, the domestic political situation as well as the desire to reverse the situation in the Syrian conflict and demonstrate a show of force to Russia also played a role, but let us once and for all abandon the idea that the world revolves around us. There’s no need to turn into Ukrainians.

Scott Adams: Trusting Your Government in a Time of War

President Trump’s critics and supporters agree on one thing: Our new president has a history of “stretching” the truth whenever there is some advantage in doing so, and sometimes even when there is not. You might say he is famous for playing loose with the facts. We all expect a high degree of “hyperbole” from President Trump, to put it kindly. He gets away with it because barely-enough Americans believe his intentions are in line with America’s best interests.

The odd exception to our universal understanding of President Trump’s mode of operation is his claim that he is totally certain Assad was responsible for the chemical attack on his own people last week. The President’s critics and most of his supporters believe President Trump when he suggests that our military can track any plane in Syria and know what that plane did to whom.

Do you believe that?

Make America Neocon Again

By Gilad Atzmon

It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Assad possessed a WMD stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to a release of lethal agents into the air would be the last thing it would do. If America was determined to ‘neutralise’ Assad’s alleged ‘WMD ability’ it would deploy special forces or diplomacy. No one defuses WMD with explosives, bombs or cruise missiles. It is simply unheard of.

America targeted al-Shayrat because it knew with certainty that there were no WMD in that location. It was a firework show. It had no military objective.

World renowned journalist Seymour Hersh has revealed, in a series of interviews and books, that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria.

As Eric Zuesse explained in Strategic Culture, Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad.

But were you also aware that George and Donald have been partners more than once? These partnerships show the George Soros we are familiar with, illegal activities paid with the almighty dollar, but we also find that Donald played the game exactly the same, and it cost him financially.

It all started with a simple loan between billionaires, but one is known as an avid socialist who is out to destroy the American way of life, while the other, well the other is following in the socialistic perspective, and has partnered with George Soros when he was in need of money. In 2004, George Soros made a $160 million loan to Donald Trump to build Trump Tower in Chicago. The $160 million Soros investment came in the form of a so-called “mezzanine loan.” (A mezzanine loan is like a second mortgage that charges a higher interest rate than the initial construction loan.)

Speaking live on CNN in the aftermath of the US missile strike against the Syrian airfield near Homs, Gabbard said she remained "skeptical" of the allegations, and reminded the host of the destructive invasions in Libya and Iraq, the latter based on a false intelligence pretext. The Democratic representative from Hawaii also called out US President Donald Trump for the "reckless" and "unconstitutional" attack.

French editorial: "Trump has just made his first major international mistake"

One can understand that Donald Trump felt emotional seeing these small bodies killed by sarin gas. But didn't he act too quickly, shooting off his Tomahawk fire at the Syrian military airport in Shayrat? Didn't he thus contradict his desire not to have America play the gendarme of the world? Had he not infringed the sovereignty of a country whose president he had defended a few days before?

One can fear the worst, if he were to take up a desire for retribution or revenge by triggering the nuclear fire of which he is the only one to possess the key! That he reacted so with Merkel and Holland, but with Putin's total disapproval, could be pardoned if he were assured that it was the Syrian air force that bombarded the town of Khan Sheikhun with chemical weapons.

Poodle Trump Runs With Dogs of War

So the brash, big-mouth tycoon in the White House with an outsized ego has finally unleashed the dogs of war in Syria.

Invoking God and the suffering of “little babies”, the supposed US Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump ordered the bombing of Syria with cruise missiles launched from warships in the Mediterranean

But the upshot is this: Trump is acting like an obedient poodle going along with the Machiavellian American power system. Invoking God and suffering babies is just a shallow moral cover for his complicity in another US criminal act – in a countless list of such crimes down through history.

To save his political skin and no doubt lucrative future business opportunities for his dynasty, Trump has donned the cap of Commander-in-Chief and is groveling before the American war machine.

He is handing over an “official” license for war in Syria that the American Deep State has been craving for years.

Following Trump's election, Bashar al-Assad said he and Trump would be "natural allies," assuming he commits himself to fighting terrorists and not building up the American Empire. But he didn't get his hopes up, "because the U.S. administration does not relate to the president alone but relates to different forces within this administration." Assad was, in other words, afraid that the old foreign-policy establishment would slither back into the halls of power and keep us engaged in our Wars of Democracy.

Alas, he may have been right.

US Intel Chiefs Urge Trump to Assassinate Kim, Other North Korea Leaders

On Friday, reports were emerging that one of the big “options” being advanced was for the United States to start deploying nuclear weapons into South Korea, a move which would both confront North Korea, and doubtless be seen as a massive provocation by nearby China.

But there’s always an escalation beyond every escalation, and US intelligence chiefs appear to have settled heavily on one, pushing the idea that the United States should just outright assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and also kill a number of other senior leaders.

The Arabic desk of RT reported that residents of Sho'ayb al-Zekr village West of al-Tabaqa city found bodies of the seven-member family whose boat was targeted and sunk in the Euphrates River as it was moving towards regions controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Other sources added that the mother and her six children were killed after their boat sank near Debsi Faraj village West of al-Tabaqa.

Meantime, media activists also reported that another boat carrying over 40 people, mostly women and children, that had left ISIL-held regions near Debsi Faraj for SDF-controlled region was also targeted and sank.

PETER OBORNE: Theresa May is at risk of copying Blair's poodle-like subservience to America and I don't share the Foreign Office hawks' joy over the US missile attack

Ever since the start of the terrible Syrian conflict six years ago, the British Government has wanted Western military intervention to help get rid of President Bashar al Assad.

But this policy seemed to have failed. Assad appeared close to winning the war, as Trump acknowledged last week when his Press secretary said that Assad staying was a ‘political reality that we have to accept’.

But then came Tuesday’s dreadful chemical attack on the village of Khan Sheikhoun in north-west Syria.

Instantly, the British and American governments blamed Assad for the horror, and within 72 hours the U.S. launched a revenge missile assault on the airbase from which the chemical attack was believed to have been launched.

The exultation in Whitehall at this turnaround of events is all the greater because it marks such an extraordinary volte-face by Donald Trump. For it is less than three months since he took office and pledged non-intervention in Syria.

Ivanka’s ‘heartbroken’ response prompted Trump to order Syria attack: Source

US President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to order a missile strike on Syria was sparked by his eldest daughter, Ivanka, who was “heartbroken” over a suspected chemical attack in Syria, says a report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trying to spread the blame around. I thought Ivanka had brains, but I guess she is another "body by Fischer brains by Mattel" girl, if she could not see the obviousness in the lie that Assad gassed his own people.

In any event, this story portrays Trump as making reckless decisions in the moment based on emotions, and that is a very bad quality in a President.

‘$64 question: Where is US evidence Assad behind Idlib chemical attack?’

The US says its missile strike on the Syrian airbase was in retaliation for the chemical attack in Idlib province which killed scores of civilians on Tuesday. However, Damascus firmly rejects any involvement.

America's UN envoy Nikki Haley held up images, purporting to show child victims of the chemical incident. She said it bears all the hallmarks of the Assad regime's use of chemicals.

The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that no probe into Syrian government involvement in the Idlib attack had been conducted yet. Spokesperson Maria Zakharova pointed out that, despite the US calling for an investigation, the country then went on to destroy the planes they wanted to investigate, adding that it has nothing to do with establishing the truth.

Bomb the Usual Arabs

G7 'Unlikely to Support' US-UK Push to Slap More Sanctions on Russia

G7 countries will likely reject the UK Foreign Secretary's latest call to tighten sanctions against Moscow, Russian political analyst Alexey Zudin told Sputnik.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mostly because the G7 realize that the original "Assad gassed his own people" doesn't make any sense, that the US always lies to start wars of aggression, and the sanctions have proven to cause more harm to Europe than to Russia.

10 Facts Regarding The US Strike On Syria

First, you’ll never get to the truth if you think this attack was merely a response to an alleged chemical attack, or if you think this is an issue of whether the US should get involved in another Middle East conflict or not. This is only a single episode in a long process the US and its allies have been taking to destroy stable Arab states for Israel while containing and trying to defeat Russia and its allies.

ANOTHER JOLLY LITTLE WAR

It seems that every new US president has to prove his machismo…or make his bones, as wiseguys say…by bombing the usual Arabs. By now, it’s almost a rite of passage. The American public loves it.

So we just saw the US launch 59 or 60 $1.5million apiece cruise missiles at a western Syrian airfield to express President Trump’s outrage caused by seeing injured children allegedly caused by a Syrian government toxic gas attack.

But what, Mr. President, about all those Iraqi, Syrian and Afghan babies killed by US B-52 and B-1 heavy bombers? Or the destruction of the defiant Iraqi city of Fallujah where the US used forbidden white phosphorus that burns right to the bone?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As far as I can tell, the American public has fallen out of love for war and bloodshed, especially war and bloodshed justified with obvious lies.

Looks Like Donald Trump May Well Be Jewish That Would Explain A Great Deal...

In his biography The Art of the Deal, Trump lied about his grandfather's country of origin, stating it was Sweden instead of Germany. So if you think these people wouldn't lie about their ancestry, you need to explain that whopper.

Trump was brought up in Jamaica Estates, Queens, which has a large Jewish population. He went to Kew-Forest School, ditto. Its other notable alumni include Katherine Weber, Jewish, Gideon Yago, Jewish, and Hank Azaria, Jewish. Googling on “attended Kew-Forest” brings up mostly Jewish names. Trump's father was on the Board of Trustees at Kew-Forest. By the way, it is very expensive.

His genealogy is a total mirage. I'll show you where to look. First go to his mother at Geni.com

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking back at another example of the government lying us all into war!

FLASHBACK - OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

In today's enlightened age of alternative media and global internet communications, lies by rulers are quickly laid bare. Yet most people remain trapped by their beliefs of what they imagine their rulers to be, and greet each new revealed mendacity with, "What? Our ruler lied to us?" The question more properly ought to be, "When don't rulers lie to us?"

The historical fact is that all rulers lie pretty much all of the time, and each newly revealed lie ought not to be thought of as a shocking isolated incident, but merely a continuation of standard operating bullshit! In short, the vast majority of what you are told by rulers is a lie, and the rare moment of absolute truth a rare and precious gem worthy of celebration.

Here are some examples from history.

There's a terrifying sense of deja vu as the Generals take over the White House and guide us towards another war (despite no-one knowing if it was Assad who used sarin on those civilians) says JOHN R BRADLEY

For those of us who covered the build-up to the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, there is a terrifying sense of deja vu as another 'Coalition of the Willing' gears up to launch a potentially devastating wave of shock-and-awe in the Middle East.

That is certainly one worst-case interpretation of the comments made yesterday by the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

Confirming a remarkable U-turn in the Trump administration's stance on Syria, she said that removing President Bashar al-Assad was now a 'priority'.

Fourteen years ago we heard similar shrill calls from political leaders for regime change in Iraq, a country that – whether or not it used chemical weapons on its own people – posed no discernible threat to the national security of our own.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a reminder, it turned out that Iraq did not gas their own people; the attack was by Iran against Iraqi Kurds who were raiding across the border.

…One possibility being aired: The President has been captured by his daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner… speaking as the father of a princess myself, I know how susceptible we can be.

Is Trump Rescuing Al-Qaeda's 'Heartland' in Syria?

After formally calling off the longstanding U.S. policy of regime change in Syria, the Trump administration is sending signals of shifting its Syria policy under massive political pressure following a grisly chemical attack in the rebel-held province of Idlib.

The chemical attack allegedly took place on April 4. Dozens of civilians were reportedly killed, although many details are still unknown.

"We have not yet any official or reliable confirmation" of what took place or who was responsible, said the UN special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, at a press conference after the incident.

CONFIRMED: Chemical weapons in Idlib were stashed by terrorists

Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov has confirmed that yesterdays ‘chemical attack’ near Idlib was not a chemical attack at all.

The Syrian Air Force targeted a chemical weapons depot belonging to terrorists operating illegally in Syria. The terrorist stockpile of chemical weapons at Khan Sheikhoun were often shipped to fellow terrorists operating in Iraq. This has been confirmed by the Iraqi government.

This of course is in line with a statement made yesterday by Syria which affirmed that Syria no longer has any chemical weapons, something confirmed by both Russia and the United States in 2013.

This makes Rex Tillerson’s statement saying that both Russia and Iran bear ‘moral responsibility’, rather silly, to borrow a word from Sean Spicer.

Russia and Iran had nothing to do with the incident in any way shape or form and Syria cannot be blamed for the fact that its terrorist enemies have hoarded stockpiles of illegal chemical weapons.

Putin Will Not Meet Tillerson In Russia, As Confusion Grows Over US Policy Toward Syria

While the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson seem unable to agree on what the right policy is regarding Syria and specifically Assad, with the former saying a top priority of Trump is to oust Assad, while the latter claimed over the weekend that the Islamic State is the key concern while Assad's fate and that the people of Syria should decide Assad's fate, Russia is not waiting for clarification.

'Work this out, or else': Trump issues ultimatum to Bannon and tells his beleaguered chief strategist that 'he will be forced out of the White House unless he adopts a more conciliatory approach'

Donald Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon will reportedly be forced out of the White House unless he adopts a more conciliatory approach and plays nice with the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The ultimatum comes after a hellish week for the top aide who has become increasingly isolated in the White House following his rise to power as a key architect of Trump's 'America First' policy, a senior official told Axios.

Bannon's power bubble burst this week when Trump booted him from the National Security Council, his feuds with Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump were made public and it emerged he was against the Syrian airstrikes.

Mike Cernovich: Petraeus and McMaster have Taken Over the NSC, Want Massive Ground War with Syria

Disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus has been remaking the NSC, and thus America’s national security policy, in his image through puppet H.R. McMaster. In what is being called “Petraeus’ second war,” McMaster has been advising Trump to raise an army to impose a regime change in Syria. Some reports estimate McMaster wants to send 150,000 ground troops to the Middle East.

Russia, Iran and Hezbollah military leaders release joint statement, threatens the U.S.

Fits about to hit the Shan!

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – The military operation rooms of Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and other allies have just released a new joint statement. This joint statement was spurred on by US aggression that saw the country strike the Shayrat Airbase in rural Homs with Tomahawk missiles.

The statement released in Arabic states that the allied operations room recognizes that the US is supporting the separation of northern Syria and Iraq from their respective states.

Point seven of the statement details how all US military are legitimate targets as they have crossed every red line possible and operate illegally in Syria. It then emphasizes that the joint military operations room will respond strongly to any aggression and any violation made by the US in Syria.

It appears this is another corporate media hoax. There is no confirmation from Moscow.

Donald Trump’s Pick For Top Economic Adviser Is Pro-Immigration, Pro-Outsourcing

Had enough?

President Donald Trump has picked an economic advisor who believes in growing the nation’s economy by importing workers and consumers, and by expanding free-trade outsourcing, despite Trump’s “buy American, hire American” campaign promises.

Kevin Hassett is slated to become chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors if he is approved by the Senate’s banking committee. If Hassett is confirmed, that will be a win for the corporatist, business-first faction in Trump’s White House, which fights for influence in the Oval Office against the populist, America-first faction that helped Trump win the election in November.

Palm Sunday attacks: 43 dead, more than 100 injured in church bombings carried out by ISIS in Egypt

Trump and the USN and USAF fly top cover for ISIS! Pathetic.

Egypt's president called for a three-month state of emergency Sunday after at least 43 people were killed and more than 100 more were injured in two Palm Sunday suicide attacks at Coptic Christian churches, each carried out by the ISIS terror group.

Sunday's first blast happened at St. George Church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta, where at least 27 people were killed and 78 others wounded, officials said.

Television footage showed the inside of the church, where a large number of people gathered around what appeared to be lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers.

Schiff says Russia is absolutely 'complicit' in Syrian chemical attack

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Russia is absolutely "complicit" in the chemical attack in Syria that killed at least 86 civilians, including many children.

"Absolutely they're complicit," Rep. Adam Schiff of California told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday. "Russian intelligence may not be as good as ours, but it's good enough to know the Syrians had chemical weapons, were using chemical weapons."
