Can Trump Leash His Pentagon ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis?

President-elect Donald Trump formally introduced his pick to lead the defense department Tuesday, as he brought his “thank you” tour to Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Will the mad dog be leashed? Ron Paul Liberty Report weighs in:

‘Mad Dog’ Mattis and the Spirit of Trumpism

When it comes to foreign policy, the incoming Trump administration displays a split personality.

Mattis exemplifies the dual nature of the new administration.
This was readily apparent during the campaign, when, on the one hand, Donald Trump told us we were lied into the Iraq war, that NATO is “obsolete,” and that we have no business supporting regime change in Syria – and, on the other hand, he declared that he would crush ISIS, that it was a mistake to leave Iraq, and that we have to “rebuild our military,” as if we don’t already spend as much as the top ten defense spenders.

Beijing Calls on US to Refuse Taiwan President Entry During Diplomatic Trip

Days after President-elect Donald Trump riled Beijing by speaking to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, China has asked Washington to not let Tsai visit the US on her way to Guatemala. China maintains a rocky relationship with Tsai, as they believe she may push for full independence of the autonomous nation.

Trump’s talk with Tsai on Friday was the first communication between a Taiwanese head of state and an American President-elect or President since the Taiwan Relations Act was passed in 1979, under US President Jimmy Carter.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi blamed Taiwan for the conversation just hours after it happened, stating that, "This is just the Taiwan side engaging in a petty action, and cannot change the 'one China' structure already formed by the international community…I believe that it won't change the longstanding 'one China' policy of the United States government."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi: The Chinese are very much admired for looking at the long term, in terms of how its government creates its strategies for moving forward economically and politically.

Your criticism of Taiwan's President's congratulatory call to President-Elect Trump, coupled with your demand that President Tsai not be allowed to visit the US on her way to Guatemala, does not seem to be in character with those attributes.

Iranophobes on Parade – Philip Giraldi

Will Iran be the target of the Trump regime?

Hopefully someone will convince Donald Trump that the real answer to eliminating the “Iranian threat” is not war.

One of the most discouraging aspects of the filling out of the Donald Trump cabinet is the array of Iran haters that seem to be lining up in the foreign policy and national security areas.Trump has been personally advocating sensible policies relating to Russia and Syria but he appears to have gone off the rails regarding Iran, which just might be attributed to those who are giving him advice.

Mr. Trump: Use Your America-First Instincts to Pick a Secretary of State

These five men taken individually or together amount to a poisonous dog’s breakfast of intervention, war-mongering, deeper bankruptcy, and Israel First.

There is not an America First-bone in any of them, and they would work against your often-stated goal of reforming U.S. foreign policy in the direction the Founders intended, and ending the influence of the passions of Neoconservatives and Israel Firsters for involving the republic in endless, unnecessary wars.

Failed EU – Means an Expanded Dictatorship

Mass movements frequently take on a life of their own.

As the people of the world awaken to the pernicious nature and destructive wreckage of European civilization, the EU technocrats and oligarchs respond with even greater measures of control, repression and intimidation. Yet the prospects that they will be able to maintain their autocratic rule lessons with each populist rebellion against the beasts from Brussels. Induced panic is a tool used to scare the peasants into additional submission. The most obvious method will be a major economic and monetary implosion designed to create fear so that their revered and lauded interdependency necessitates another surrender of national sovereignty.

Officer Once Jailed For DUI And Making His Child Drive Is Up For Promotion – Report

A Milwaukee sergeant, who once served a jail time after making his minor daughter drive while he was drunk, may soon become a lieutenant. Milwaukee Police Chief reportedly named him among candidates “suitable for promotion.”

John P. Corbett served 30 days on work release in 2011, when he was indicted for driving under influence with a child in his car and letting his then 13-year-old daughter get behind the wheel.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts Is A Former Treasury Secretary Who Actually Cares

Here’s an idea – how about appointing a US Treasury Secretary who actually cares for the ultimate welfare of the American People and the United States of America for a change, as opposed to using his position as a “revolving door” a la the cadre of treasonous “America-last” gaggle of premeditated criminals merely taking a leave of absence from their full-time jobs at Goldman Sachs and Covington & Burling LLP?

The American economy and its engineered 2008 crash wrought by such “financial luminaries” as Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Gene Sperling, Hank Paulson, Tim Geithner, and others, has left a lasting effect, if not almost the total destruction of, the American Economy.

MAJOR FOREIGN POLICY SHIFT: TURKEY ABANDONING EU FOR SCO

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on November 20 that Turkey did not need to join the European Union «at all costs». Instead, it could become part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), or Shanghai Pact. The Turkish leader said he had already discussed the idea with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The SCO is a Eurasian political, economic, and military organization founded in 2001 in Shanghai. Its members are Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan speak Turkic languages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Economically and geopolitically, for a lot of reasons, it makes far more sense for Turkey to joint the SCO than the EU; Erdogan has called this correctly.

Trending on Twitter: MSM Flips - Trump Risks War With China Because He Called Called Taiwan

More fake news from the corporate media. Just when you think they can’t possibly lose anymore credibility. You just cant make this stuff up.

The liberal media is flipping out because Trump just made a phone call to Taiwan throw accusations all over the place he at a minimum started a trade war if not an actual war.

Protests Slam India's Economy As "The Concept Of Money Dies"

Fear has gripped the bullion market, for one is deemed to be guilty until proven otherwise. People with perfectly legal cash are afraid of cameras recording their purchases and having to pay outrageous bribes. After an adjustment period people will buy more — not less — gold. For now, the gold market has gone mostly underground with the gold price hovering around US$1,700 per ounce. Did Modi want to boost the informal economy?

China military says it's seriously concerned by Japan-South Korea pact

China's Defence Ministry on Wednesday expressed serious concern about South Korea and Japan signing a military intelligence pact to share sensitive information on the threat posed by North Korea's missile and nuclear activities.

The signing of the General Security of Military Information Agreement had originally been expected in 2012, but South Korea postponed it due to domestic opposition.

The case for the neighbors to pool intelligence has increased, however, as North Korea has been testing different types of missiles at a faster rate, and claims it has the capability to mount a nuclear warhead on a missile.

Chinese Defence Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said the move would add a new unsafe and unstable element to northeast Asia and smacked of a Cold War mentality.

"China's military expresses serious concern about this," Yang told a monthly news briefing, adding to previous opposition to the deal from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Chinese Defence Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun: please, try to this from both the Japanese and South Korean perspectives.

Your client State, North Korea, appears drifting toward more instability, and this is coupled with the reality that its President, Kim Jung-Un, appears to be hell-bent to develop a viable nuclear weapons program, which has guidance that works, and soon.

Sir, forgive me, but if you were heads of state, or even citizens, in either South Korea or Japan, would you not be just a little ...nervous, knowing that this was going on?!?

I would strongly suggest, sir that your President, Xi Jinping, needs to recommence negotiations with North Korea, bringing in South Korea, Japan, and the US government, to hammer out a true peace treaty.

This would replace the current Armistice, which is simply a cessation of hostilities, and would include the provision for trade guarantees, as long as North Korea stops developing nuclear weapons, and becomes a signatory to the NNPT, as Iran did.

It can be done, if the will is there. And I hope China's experience with President-Elect Trump will be a far more positive working relationship than it has been with the current (and soon to be Ex) President Obama.

That Obama dissed China at the last G20 meeting, hosted by China, by accusing them of South China Sea "aggression", was the geopolitical equivalent to relieving oneself in someone's face, then telling them it was raining.

The Hidden Communist History of the Neo-Conservatives (“Neo Cons”)

Neo-conservatism fully began to rear its ugly head in the 1990’s when they thoroughly infiltrated the once patriotic and pro-America Republican party.

It is therefore incumbent upon each and every single patriotic American who cares about the future of their country (especially federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutor offices) to immediately begin to identify, isolate, marginalize, investigate, indict, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate all Neo-Conservatives as an internal and national security threat to the welfare of the United States of America.

Foibles, Fables and Failures – The Financial Press and its Keepers

The Presidential elections made millions of American voters starkly aware of the mendacity of the mass media and the corruption of the Clinton political elite.

The world’s largest billionaire bankers had bankrolled Secretary Hillary Clinton, the ‘million-dollar-a-speech’ War Goddess. They had bet heavily against the populist-nationalist Donald Trump and they lost. Their pre-paid political manifestos, addressed to the readers of the NY Times, flopped and sputtered: Most readers and investors in domestic markets had placed their bets on ‘The Donald’. Their domestic celebrations pumped up the market after the election.

The unimaginable had happened: George Soros had bet and lost! The ‘deplorable’ electorate preferred the obnoxious nationalist to the obnoxious speculator. ‘Who’d a thunk it?’

Trump the Great — Paul Craig Roberts

If Trump can defeat the oligarchy and save America, he can go down in history as Trump the Great.

What we don’t know is why groups that allegedly are liberal-progressive-leftwing are such fervent supporters of Hillary.

To the extent any of the Trump protesters are sincere and not merely paid tools of oligarchs, such as George Soros, military and financial interests, and global capitalists, they should consider that false claims and unjustified criticism can cause Trump and his supporters to close their ears to all criticism and make it easier for neoconservatives to influence Trump by offering support.

Japanese slavery, "voluntary overtime with no pay"
This is a huge problem in Japan. People are working 5 or 6 hours of over time every workday without any pay. A Japanese tv show tried to tackle the issue. They all admitted it was wrong and illegal but that it happens anyway. They said we should change but never said how. It is already illegal to not pay people for work, but there are no consequences.This might be related to why Japan has the highest suicide rate in the world.

The Iran-Russia-China Strategic Triangle

21 November 2016
By F. William Engdahl

The developing economic, political and military links binding Iran, China and Russia in what I see as an emerging Golden Triangle in Eurasia, are continuing to deepen insignificant areas. This, while it seems to be US geopolitical strategy in a prospective Trump Administration to distance Washington from both Iran and from China, while dangling the carrot of lessened confrontation between Washington and Moscow–classic Halford Mackinder or Kissinger geopolitics of avoiding a two-front war that was colossally backfiring on Washington by trying to shift the power balance. At present, the dynamic of the past several years of closer cooperation by the three pivotal states of the Eurasian Heartland is gaining strategic momentum. The latest is the visit of China’s Minister of Defense and of Russian senior officials to Teheran

Cash Crackdown Escalates: India May Impose 60% Tax On "Unaccounted" Deposits, Curbs On Gold Holdings

The scrambling Indian government is taking even more aggressive steps to part savers with their allegedly "laundered" cash, and according to overnight news, the latest proposal is to levy close to 60% income tax on unaccounted deposits in banks above a threshold post demonetisation of high-denomination currency notes. Concurrently, the Indian government may also impose curbs on domestic holdings of gold as the war against "black money" escalates.

When Money Dies - India's Demonetization Is A "Massive Man-Made Disaster"

India faces a highly uncertain future. A vicious cycle has been set into motion by Modi and it will not end well. Unpredictable problems and unintended consequences are bound to surface incessantly. If Modi comes under sufficient pressure, he could easily go to war with nuclear-armed Pakistan

Modi, in his permament search for personal glorification could easily impose a state of emergency or martial law. This is in fact extremely likely, perhaps even inevitable, for the so-called intellectuals will beg for it.

As we have said previously: this will go down in the history books as one of the most naïve, least thought through policy decisions ever, a massive man-made disaster.

Japan Releases Instructions for Citizens in Case of Nuclear War with North Korea

JAPANESE people are bracing themselves for nuclear attack with chilling advise on what to do if Kim Jong-un presses the red button.

For the first time since North Korea began a series of nuke tests, people in Japan are being issued with terrifying instruction on how to deal with nuclear war.

A downloadable pamphlet is now available on the island nation’s civil defence website.

Called “Protecting Ourselves against Armed Attacks and Terrorism,” it outlines emergency measures in the event North Korean missiles are fired at the country.

It bears similarities to the creepy Protect and Survive documents issued in Britain and Northern Ireland during the early 1980s following the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan.

Like the UK’s booklet it give top-tips on how to avoid being fried and radiated.

It urges people to take shelter indoors behind thick walls to avoid blast injuries but also radiation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of the release of such information by any government is never accidental. But I have to ask: why is this info being disseminated now?!?

Is the Japanese government concerned about an "accidental" nuclear strike because of the historical failure of North Korea's missile guidance systems?!?

Traditionally, the big problem for the North Korean military and scientists have had with their missiles, has been that of guidance.

I have a hard time believing that this has been miraculously "cured" since North Korea's last underground nuclear test last September.

That being said, I think we may be in for at least another missile test, or underground nuclear test...or perhaps both, from North Korea, and soon.

Kim Jung-Un appears to be using these tests as "leverage" against the US, South Korea, and Japan, after seeing what happened with the P5+1 agreement with Iran.

What Kim Jung-Un wants is a true peace treaty to replace the armistice which has existed between North and South Korea for the last 60 years, with guarantees on trade, in exchange for stopping his nuclear weapons program.

And the sooner the US can cajole China into sitting down at the table to make such negotiations happen, the better.

Of course, that will not happen now until Trump is President, looking at the horrific gaffe Obama pulled that last time he was at the G20 meeting in China, where he excoriated China about its actions in the South China Sea.

More Rohingyas flee to Bangladesh as violence spreads in Myanmar

More Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar poured into neighboring Bangladesh this week, with some feared to have drowned after a boat sank during a bid to flee violence that has killed at least 86 people and displaced 30,000.

Some Rohingya refugees have been missing since Tuesday after a group crossed the River Naaf that separates Myanmar and Bangladesh. Those who managed to enter Bangladesh sought shelter in refugee camps or people's homes.

"There was a group of people from our village who crossed the river by boat to come here, but suddenly the boat sank," said Humayun Kabir, the father of three children untraceable since the mishap.

Although many of those on board could swim, and were able to reach the river bank, seven people remain missing, he added, his children among them.

Myanmar troops poured into the western state of Rakhine along the frontier with Bangladesh in response to coordinated attacks on three border posts on Oct. 9 that killed nine police officers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Aung San Suu Kyi's inability to put down the violence against the Rohingya does not augur well for the future of peace in her country.

I frankly would have expected more of a Nobel Peace Prize winner; but then again, look at all the carnage the US's President Obama has created since becoming a recipient of that prize, which actually makes the awarding of it to him on esick joke!!

Trump loses half his transition team in purge of lobbyists

Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington ...
The Trump transition team has lost nearly half its staff and volunteers in a matter of days since instituting a ban on registered lobbyists at the end of last week, the Daily Mail has learned.

‘All the lobbyists are gone,’ said one source familiar with the transition. ‘Lobbyists were the vast majority. Now, today you go in and you could count [them] maybe on one hand.’

The source estimated that the number of staffers and volunteers working on the transition plummeted from around 250 late last week to less than 125 on Tuesday.

West Already Weaponizing Fake News

Maybe the internet will not succumb to the latest Western crusade against “fake news”.
You really know that masses of people are living within a mind-control matrix when the greatest, most pervasive purveyors of fake news denounce others for the practice.

And yet they do so without the slightest hint of awareness about their own monstrous hypocrisy.

“Fake news” has become a hot issue following the surprise US election victory of maverick business tycoon Donald Trump. Supposedly serious Western media outlets have highlighted the spread of hoax stories purporting to be news reports as having swayed the presidential race in Trump’s favor against his rival, Democrat career politician Hillary Clinton.

The Upcoming War On The Alternative Media By The Deep State Mainstream Media

This declaration of war was typified by Google and FaceBook

They did not bank on this, and were completely and totally confident that their trillions of dollars of money issued by the Federal Reserve and international central banks, control of the National Security State as represented by the Military Industrial Complex, and bought and paid for representatives in the United States Legislature (Congress and Senate), Executive Branch, and Judiciary would have ensured their victory.

So what turned this election around, to upset the proverbial apple cart and deliver the Presidency to Donald J. Trump?

Connecting Two Continents: The Ultimate Engineering Challenge

The Bering Strait was last crossed by humans 20,000 years ago during the ice age, when ice formed a bridge between North America and Asia. Today, 47 miles and some of the harshest ocean and arctic conditions separate the two continents.

However, there are many who believe there would be great economical, sociological, and political value in connecting the two land masses by bridge or tunnel. Imagine being able to travel from London to Moscow to Washington, DC, all over land.

The massive undertaking would traverse the Bering Strait with the world’s longest tunnel – a project twice the length of the Chunnel between England and France. The $65 billion project aims to feed North America with raw goods from the Siberian interior and beyond, but it could also provide a key link to developing a robust renewable energy transmission corridor that feeds wind and tidal power across vast distances while linking a railway network across 3/4 of the Northern Hemisphere.

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

Trump Prepares to Take Over the Fed

Now their little party is coming to an end.

In Donald Trump’s first four years as president, he will not only choose three judges for the Supreme Court, he’ll also pick five of the seven members on the Fed Board of Governors. It would be impossible to overstate the effect this is going to have on the nation’s economic future. With both houses of Congress firmly in the GOP’s grip, we could see the most powerful central bank in the world transformed into a purely political institution that follows the diktats of one man.

Myanmar’s New “Democratic Dictator”: Aung San Suu Kyi

The Western media is portraying Myanmar’s recent elections as historic. One commentator described Myanmar as an “exuberant nation prepared for a new era of democracy and political freedom.” But one wonders what sort of democracy and political freedom can be borne of elections in which nearly a million voters were banned from casting their ballots and with the apparent victor already declaring herself above the law.

Sidestepping these inconvenient facts, the West is nonetheless excited about the prospect of Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy (NLD) taking power in Myanmar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow!! I never thought in my lifetime, I would ever have to say, "Watch out: here come the Buddhists!"

But unfortunately, for the Islamic Rohingya minority residents of Myanmar, who have been living here for hundreds of years, that seems to pretty much be the case right now.

Call me silly, but I frankly don't think that Buddha would very much approve of this at all; not one bit.

Malaysian protesters march against Prime Minister Najib

Tens of thousands of protesters, undeterred by the arrests of opposition leaders, marched in Malaysia's capital on Saturday demanding that Prime Minister Najib Razak step down.

Protesters clad in yellow shirts marched through the heart of Kuala Lumpur bringing traffic to a standstill in several tourist spots, wrapping up peacefully in front of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers after an initial plan to assemble at Independence Square was thwarted by police.

Najib has faced criticism since the Wall Street Journal reported last year that around $700 million from state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was diverted into the personal bank account of the prime minister.

Najib ran into further trouble when lawsuits filed by the U.S. Justice Department in July said over $3.5 billion was stolen from 1MDB, which was founded by Najib, and that some of those funds flowed into the accounts of "Malaysian Official 1", whom U.S. and Malaysian officials have identified as Najib.

Scenes Of Panic In India As Gold Price Skyrockets After Currency Ban

Here is a link to Part 1, about what happened in the first two days after India’s government made Rs 500 (~$7.50) and Rs 1,000 (~$15) banknotes illegal. They can now only be converted to Rs 100 (~$1.50) or lower denomination notes, at bank branches or post offices. Banks were closed the first day after the decision. What follows is the crux of what has happened over the subsequent four days.

Today India is on the verge of a major social-political crisis, unless either the government backs off from the decision of banning the currency or some real magic happens. There is chaos in the streets and daily life is slowly but surely coming to a full halt.

What Modi did was not only heavy-handed, hugely arrogant, and of no value, it has been very badly implemented to boot — as everything in India always is — and carries the real potential of escalating and snowballing into something horrific. They could have seen that this was not going to end well by simply using primary school math.

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

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

The Donald Trump Cabinet: He Is Not A Masochist

He may temporarily forgive, but he does not forget. This rule of thumb has served him well in transforming his father’s multimillion dollar but fledgling real estate company into the multi-billion dollar international real estate powerhouse that it currently is.

So what gives in regards to the names of his Cabinet that are being floated around?

Mind you, some of the list below was gleaned from the New York Times, so a huge grain of salt should be taken before one delves into this analysis.

What Donald Trump Needs To Do

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

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

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

But Donald Trump is made of legendary stuff, and not only endured these constant and underhanded attacks, but also exposed and destroyed them all, one by one.

«Term of Office Extension» Mission in Northeast Asia

By circumstance, three countries of Northeast Asia — China, South Korea, and Japan — are being marked this autumn by the attempts of political elite to reform the existing regulations binding the term of office of the executive branch representatives. «New Asian Perspectives» blog gives an overview. The country overview should start in a reversed alphabetical order, from major range of achievements in this area to minor. At this point the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe has been the most successful in the issue raised... South Korean top leadership also had similar ideas in October, though a sudden corruption scandal engulfing the President of South Korea Park Geun-hye aggravated the situation. On October 24 Park initiated a discussion and made a program statement regarding the possible changes in the constitutional provisions that limit presidential term to one of five years.

A Digital 9/11 If Trump Wins

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

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

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

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

Lemmings and Republicans – Alan Ned Sabrosky

So why are so many Republican leaders doing all they can do to diminish Trump and give the election to Clinton ?

For conservatives and Republicans, a win by Hillary Clinton in November would be a catastrophe — and not just because people like Miley Cyrus and Al Sharpton would not leave the country.

It would mean continued assaults on the 1st and 2nd Amendments, especially the latter. Higher taxes and more welfare. More war — Hillary Clinton’s defense secretary-in-waiting, Michelle Flournoy, has openly said as much. And it would mean her appointment of at least one justice to the US Supreme Court, and perhaps as many as four, creating a liberal block of five to seven justices that will put its stamp on the country for a generation or more.

Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street Fundraising Benefited From Loophole In Federal Anti-Corruption Rule

‘Particularly Vulnerable To Pay To Play Practices’

Despite an anti-corruption rule that was designed to reduce the financial industry’s political power, top officials from the investment firm BlackRock hosted Hillary Clinton at campaign fundraisers earlier this year.

The cash — which poured in through a loophole in the law — came in as BlackRock’s federal contracts to manage billions of dollars of retiree assets will be up for renewal during the next president’s term.

Citigroup bank chose Obama’s 2008 cabinet – WikiLeaks

The single biggest beneficiary was Citigroup, which was given $45 billion in cash in the form of a government stock purchase, plus a $306 billion government guarantee to back up its worthless mortgage-related assets.

One month before the presidential election of 2008, the giant Wall Street bank Citigroup submitted to the Obama campaign a list of its preferred candidates for cabinet positions in an Obama administration. This list corresponds almost exactly to the eventual composition of Barack Obama’s cabinet.

The memorandum, revealed by WikiLeaks in a recent document release from the email account of John Podesta, who currently serves as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, was written by Michael Froman, who was then an executive with Citigroup and currently serves as US trade representative. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team.

Tensions Boil: Beijing Accuses Japan of Endangering Chinese Aircraft

On Thursday the Chinese Defense Ministry accused Japan of targeting and endangering the safety of Beijing’s military aircraft. Tokyo and Beijing are in the midst of a long-standing dispute over a group of islands in the East China Sea, called Diaoyu by China and Senkaku in Japan.

Fighter jets and patrol ships from both countries have been hounding each other near the small, uninhabited islets, seemingly setting the stage for an impending confrontation. Beijing’s planes have been chased 407 times by Japanese fighter jets in the six months preceding September. This marks a roughly 75 percent increase from 231 incidents over the same period last year, according to the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Japan's playing picador with Chinese military aircraft is engineered to ratchet up tensions, rather than calming them.

I am certain that the US government is "egging Japan on" in these very dangerous actions.

DUTERTE PULLS A 180: CHINA TO BUILD FAKE ISLANDS RIGHT OFF PHILIPPINE COAST

In a move signaling a point of no return in Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent pivot to China, it was reported Tuesday the Philippines have granted a state-owned Chinese infrastructure group the right to build artificial islands in the South China Sea — they very practice Duterte’s predecessor had sought to restrict via U.N. intervention.

“China Communication Construction Company (CCCC), a State-owned infrastructure group, recently signed a contract with the Philippines’ Mega Harbour Port and Development Inc. to conduct a 208-hectare land reclamation project in Davao’s harbour,” wrote China’s state-run People’s Daily.

To be built just off the Philippines’ southern coast by “moving sediment from the seafloor to a reef,” the four islands“will be used for government offices, businesses, residences, ports and industrial land.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what the quid pro quo was here; but in any event, Duterte has just sealed his fate with the US government.

Look for an immediate, American policy of "regime change" in Manila, by any means necessary, and "with extreme prejudice".

Or so it sure looks anyway.

I say talons of “New York and Washington” because America’s foreign policy, forged in those two cities, belongs entirely to them. Americans have no influence on it. Further, none of of what the Empire does abroad is of any benefit to Americans.

NATO starts training Azerbaijani army for psychological and information operations during crisis

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan reports that the Mobile Training Group of NATO Allied Joint Forces Command conducts a Training Course on "Psychological & information operations during crisis" in Baku since 24 October.

“The aim of Course to be held until 28 October is the planning and implementation of psychological operations during operations in response to crises, as well as the preparation of presentations concerning the experience obtained in this area and use of guidance documents, organization of work in syndicate groups,” the Ministry informed.

The Course was organized within the framework of the Individual Partnership & Cooperation Programme between the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan and NATO for 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question needs to be asked: why this NATO training of Azerbaijani troops, and why now?!?

The answer can be found in the following map:

Map of Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Nagoro Karabakh

Armenia is a major ally of Russia; as reported at globalsecurity.org:

Armenia on 01 January 2015 became a full-fledged member of the Eurasian Economic Union [EEU], the Russia-led trade bloc, which also includes Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. The EU-like integration project includes a common customs policy, free trade, free movement of labor and other measures aimed at boosting the economies of member states. Armenian leaders have repeatedly stated that they are not seeking NATO membership and will remain part of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the Russian-dominated alliance of six ex-Soviet states. Russia counts on Armenia to be its ally in the Caucasus. Armenia recognizes its reliance -- even dependence -- on Russia's continued support on security and trade issues and will remain a loyal supporter of Russian policies where it counts. Russia can rely on continued Armenian support for its military presence and for the majority of its positions in international fora such as the OSCE. Armenia can count on Russia for its role as mediator in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Complementarity remains the watchword of Armenian foreign policy, but when push comes to shove, Russia remains Armenia's key ally. Russia has a closer relationship with Armenia than with any other country in the South Caucasus. After the Soviet Union collapsed, Armenia's national security continued to depend heavily on the Russian military. The officer corps of the new national army created in 1992 included many Armenian former officers of the Soviet army, and Russian institutes trained new Armenian officers. Two Russian divisions were transferred to Armenian control, but another division remained under full Russian control on Armenian soil.

The bone of contention in Armenian and Azerbaijan relations is the conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, which was overtaken by Armenian nationalists in 1988, and the feud has grown worse, with sporadic outbursts of military conflict. As reported at economist.com in April of this year:

WITH so many conflicts in the world, Nagorno-Karabakh gets little attention. The bloody fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces in the mountainous enclave this week was a reminder that it should. Tanks and artillery traded fire; at least 50 people were killed in four days. The spectre loomed of a wider war, one that could draw in Russia, Turkey and Iran. A ceasefire brokered in Moscow on April 5th appears to be holding for now. But it brought the two foes no closer to peace. The fighting dates back to 1988, when Nagorno-Karabakh’s ethnic Armenians attempted to secede from Azerbaijan. (At the time, both Armenia and Azerbaijan were republics of the Soviet Union.) As the Soviet Union broke apart in 1991, the conflict grew into a full-scale war. By 1994 some 30,000 people were dead and Nagorno-Karabakh was under Armenian control. Russia, America and France brokered a ceasefire, but sporadic shooting continued. Rather than time healing old wounds, it deepened them. On April 2nd the frustration spilled over. Azerbaijani forces seized settlements and strategic heights along the front. (Both sides accuse each other of starting the fighting.)

Armenia has expressed no desire to join NATO; the Azerbaijani government wants Nagorno-Karabakh back, and is being trained by NATO "advisors" about the psychological and informational aspects to "crisis" situations (translation: the psychological and informational aspects to war.)

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that NATO is preparing the Azerbaijani military for another round against Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh; such an action, of course, would be yet another potential "back door war" against Russia, with Russia coming in on the Armenian side, and NATO and the US on the Azerbaijani side. Turkey and Iran could wind up getting involved, and this could create a monster, global military conflict.

U.S. Loses Influence and Perhaps a Key Ally in the Pacific

The relationship between the US and Philippines has been on the rocks for a while now. Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte announced Thursday that the country will now be aligned with China.

China and the Philippines have recently had discussions about how to resolve the South China Sea dispute. Duterte made this statement while he was on a visit to Beijing, where he met 200 business people about the new commercial alliance with China.

Apparently, the meeting went well because after the Philippines president announced a “separation” from the US.

"In this venue, your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States," said Duterte at a forum in the Great Hall of the People. "Both in military, not maybe social, but economics also. America has lost." Later announcements indicate this may not be such a hard separation, however its clear the U.S. has lost substantial influence in the region.

TwitterEmailPrintASIAThe Philippines Just Blew Up Obama's Asia Pivot

Does anyone remember President Barack Obama's pivot to Asia? The plan was to focus diplomatic and military assets in East Asia to contain a rising China. It was one of the reasons Obama said he was shrinking the American footprint in the Middle East.

Well, the pivot is failing. On Thursday, the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, announced to an audience at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing a "separation" with the U.S. "America has lost now,” he said. "And maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world: China, Philippines and Russia. It’s the only way."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government has managed to mangle this so badly that the situation with Duterte in the Philippines has blown up in DC's fact like a bad trick cigar; now, without an outright US-backed assassination of Duterte to fill the the position with someone more to DC's liking, the US government has become impotent to have any influence whatsoever in the Philippines for quite some time now.

This has been one of numerous self-inflicted wounds, courtesy of the Obama Administration, regarding US foreign policy.

The Shrimp America Imports are Injected with Toxic Chemicals that Cause Cancer, Damage Organs

By Vandita

Vietnam’s Mekong Delta is suffering from its worst drought in nearly a century; which, along with salt water contamination, is severely affecting seafood production in the country (more than 81,000 hectares of shrimp breeding ponds in eight provinces have been damaged).

Vietnam currently needs around 130 billion breeding shrimp every year, but since local brood stock can meet only 40% of that demand, Vietnamese producers are injecting carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), gelatin, and glucose to make the available shrimp weigh more...

The Growing Danger of Military Conflict with Russia

It seems clear that the Russian government wants to present the new U.S. administration with the following: an Aleppo largely back under Syrian government control, with Bashar al-Assad having outlasted the Obama administration which demanded his departure and predicted his overthrow; a whole host of new capabilities—from new cruise missiles to drones to cyber tools—to suggest that U.S. predominance in these areas may be ending; putting Iskander missile systems in Kaliningrad to undermine recent efforts to reassure NATO’s eastern flank; extensive civil defense efforts at home; and diplomatic efforts aimed at attenuating Washington’s ties with traditional allies on both the western and eastern ends of the Asian continent (Turkey and the Philippines) while seeking to reestablish Soviet-era bases in Cuba and Vietnam.

Wall Street speeches reveal the real Hillary

The (true) story that Hillary Clinton is a liar on issues big and small, that she uses half-truths, deceptions and dissembling to cover up her reprobate behavior is an old one.

But it’s a story Hillary breathes more life into every day she moves closer to becoming president. The latest treasure trove of evidence: a WikiLeaks email dump chronicling her two-faced behavior in such dramatic tones that it should be required reading for anyone who thinks she has the temperament to lead this country. (She hasn’t denied the emails’ authenticity.)

20 Reasons Why It Should Be Donald Trump in 2016

He is not your ordinary politician. Yes, Trump is different. Guess what? That’s a good thing. His ideas – e.g., a sound immigration policy, returning manufacturing jobs to America, negotiating better trade deals – are not at all radical, but do go against the Washington status-quo.

You see, we’re supposed to select another perfectly malleable politician – a Republican not unlike a Democrat – who won’t shake things up too much while in office. Same ol’, same ol’. And you, little person, you are supposed to vote for more of the same and like it. But the American public has reached a tipping point – we’d rather gouge out our eyes than select another career politician or Washington insider. That’s just electing the problem to fix the problem.

Russian Tu-95 and Tu-22M3 Bombers to Patrol Airspace Between Hawaii and Japan

A new division of Tu-95MS and Tu-22M3 strategic bombers will soon appear in the Russian Far East to patrol the area over the Pacific Ocean inside the Japan – Hawaii – Guam triangle, Izvestia reported.

Military experts see the creation of a new air group as a clear signal to the Asia-Pacific nations and the US that Russia is serious about is current pivot to Asia. “The formation of the division is almost complete now. It consists of several squadrons of long-distance bombers deployed in the Eastern and Central military districts,” a Defense Ministry representative told the newspaper.

It will be already the second heavy bomber air group in the Russian Aerospace Forces after a division of Tu-160, Tu-95MS and Tu-22M3 bombers that have been so successful mopping up terrorists in Syria, was added last year. The newly-formed division will include dozens of strategic and long-range bombers to be deployed in Irkutsk and Amur regions.

Asia Approaches the Arctic

Russia and China have established a joint Arctic research centre at the Far Eastern Federal University and Harbin Polytechnic University. This achievement is yet another example of the growing interest that Asian countries and China in particular are taking in the Arctic. New Asian Perspectives has decided to recall other recent events demonstrating Asia’s turn to the Arctic. It is well known that the key event took place in 2013, when India, China, Singapore, South Korea and Japan joined the Arctic Council as observers. The first China–Korea–Japan Arctic talks were held in April 2016. Curiously, this September, just as the news of the establishment of the Russia–China Arctic Centre was announced, the United States, which is currently the Arctic Council chairman, held its first summit at the level of science ministers...

Confirmations

I'm with the Russians. Destroy the terrorists!

After five years of war in Syria, the masks have come off. The publication of the text of the Russo-US agreement reveals the hidden intentions of the two great powers – Washington wants to cut the «Silk Road», while Moscow wants to destroy the jihadists.

The Eurasian Century is Now Unstoppable

The idiotic wars of the Washington war-hawks and their military industry–in Syria, in Ukraine, Libya, Iraq and now the South China Sea provocations against China–are not going to stop what is now clearly the most impressive and economically altering project in more than a century.

The term “American Century” was triumphantly proclaimed in a famous editorial in Life magazine in 1941 in the early phase of World War II, before the United States had even entered the war, to describe the system publisher Henry Luce saw dominating the postwar world after the fall of the rival British Empire.

The Cowardly BRICS Bank Nations (Except Russia)

It seems that with every single day, both the Mainstream and Alternative Media are reporting more and more innocent men, women, children, and little babies being blown to bits by bombs and artillery, or drowning somewhere off the coast in some remote ocean off of North Africa or Southern Europe on their way to flee from the bombed out desperation and horror of NATO’s carpet bombing of Libya, or from Western Intelligence and Saudi Arabia/Turkey/Israel’s proxy group ISIS, and their collective attacks on Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and the Kurds.

With each and every additional single day of this mindless bloodshed, the world watches and wonders why it is being allowed to continue.

Donald Trump Is Right: America’s Infrastructure Is Falling Apart

The amount of money that the US Transportation takes in ever year, particularly within the Tri-State Area, is truly staggering – some would argue that is in the trillions of dollars per year with the obscene amount of tolls, taxes (federal state and local) as well as the other methods of raising revenue that should be earmarked for American infrastructure – the ultimate question is where the hell is all of this money going?

People constantly talk about “Auditing the Fed,” but what about auditing the US Department of Transportation?

After F*** you EU! Philippines President now calls for ALLIANCE with Russia and China

PRESIDENT of the Philippines said he would visit Russia and China to open alliances with the two powers after he slammed the EU for attacking his drug policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Odd how the leadership of the EU and US don't hesitate to drop white hot flaming death on innocent people around the world, but if you want to shoot a drug dealer they get really angry! One would almost suspect they are involved in the drug trade!
