LISTEN TO THE AWKWARD MOMENT THIS CLINTON ADVISOR REALIZED HER BOOK WAS BASED ON A FALSEHOOD

A former advisor to Bill Clinton and Al Gore may have set a record for fastest discrediting of a book when a BBC interviewer showed her the central thesis was based on a misreading of legal terminology.

Naomi Wolf’s book, “Outrages: Sex, Censorship, and the Criminalization of Love,” which is not even out for another month, makes the claim that the British government continued to execute people for sodomy long after it was previously thought the practice ended. Wolf looked at records from the Old Bailey and saw the term “death recorded,” a term she realizes in this interview actually refers to cases in which a sentence of death is passed but suspended.

Wolf claims to have found “several dozen executions.” Her research, she claims, “corrects a misapprehension that is in every website that the last man was executed for sodomy in Britain in 1835.”

“I don’t think you’re right about this,” the BBC’s Matthew Sweet replied to her in the interview.

Bombs to Break Through Syrian Army Lines - Russian MoD

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Terrorists in the Idlib de-escalation zone are preparing up to four vehicles filled with explosives to help them break through Syrian army defensive positions, the commander of the Russian centre for Syrian reconciliation said on Friday.

According to Maj. Gen. Viktor Kupchishin, more than 800 militants, at least seven tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles and 15 pickup trucks with heavy machine guns have already arrived in the southwest of the Idlib de-escalation zone. Illegal armed groups are bringing in reinforcements, weapons and military equipment to ??the town of Kafr Nabudah in Hama province.

Russia Condemns US "Warships" Off Venezuela's Coast - Says Coup Attempts Ongoing

We might chalk it up to stating the obvious, but by and large the media has moved on from Venezuela, however, the coup plotters in Washington have not. Apparently the Kremlin also wishes to remind the world of this, given its ongoing support to Maduro and his army, and given that the Russian foreign ministry has remained vocal on the issue, announcing this week that "US-backed attempts to stage a coup in Venezuela will continue."

Schiff Claims Trump 'Conspiring' With Barr; Says Investigating Russiagate Origins "Un-American" 

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) says that President Trump and Attorney General William Barr are 'conspiring' to "weaponize law enforcement against their political enemies," calling the DOJ investigation into the origins of the Russia probe "un-American."

CIA Whistleblower: Assange Is Going To Get Railroaded By "Hanging" Judge

A former CIA analyst-turned-whistleblower says that an extradited Julian Assange would have no chance of a fair trial in front of a federal judge who "reserves every national security case for herself."

Judge Leonie Brinkema, Julian Assange
John Kiriakou, who was sentenced to 30 months in prison by Eastern District of Virginia Judge Leonie Brinkema for telling ABC News about CIA waterboarding, told Russian state-sponsored RT "They are going to try to make an example of Julian," adding "He’s been charged in the Eastern District of Virginia. His judge was also my judge and ex-Snowden’s judge and [CIA whistleblower] Jeffry Sterling’s judge who reserves every national security case for herself."

"She is a hanging judge. She will not give him a fair trial. It’s impossible for Julian to receive a fair trial in the Eastern District of Virginia," addid Kiriakou.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly worry that he will not be allowed to live before his trial; anyone remember how Whitey Bulger was bludgeoned to death, in prison?!?

There are a whole lot of people, wanting him dead, and they would not hesitate have an assassination ordered, if they felt what he may have to say at a trial, would compromise their wealth and their power.

White House To Send Another 2,000 Troops To Counter "Credible" Iranian Threat

Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo assured his interviewers on Fox News that the threat from Iran is totally "real" and "credible" - though he once again refused to get into specifics. But whatever the threat might be, American troops in the region will soon be able to sleep a little easier, because the White House and Pentagon have reportedly agreed to send "roughly 2,000" additional troops to the Middle East...to help protect American forces in the region.

Other reports put the number at closer to 1,500. Trump met with Pentagon leaders Thursday evening where they decided to move ahead with the troop deployment to CENTCOM, which oversees all American troops in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does our Secretary of State, not understand, that he is TELEGRAPHING a false flag, to be blamed against Iran?!?!?

Boeing Shares Slide On Reports Of SEC Investigation

Since the aviation authorities around the world grounded the 737 MAX 8 following a second suspicious crash, the scrutiny facing Boeing has been intensifying. Over the past two months, the DoJ has opened a criminal probe, the FAA is looking into whether Boeing mislead regulators during the certification process, and a smattering of Congressional investigations are also ongoing - not to mention the flurry of lawsuits stemming from the two deadly crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whoever at Boeing signed off with these known flaws, should face trial, and if found guilty, thrown in the slammer, and not a Club Fed, period, end of discussion.

"Retaliation Is Imminent": Here Are China's "Nuclear" Trade War Options

Almost exactly one year ago, when the US-China trade war was still in its early stages and when conventional wisdom (wrong, as it usually is) dictated that the two sides would never escalate to the "tech cold war" stage we have now as it is in "nobody's interest" to launch an all-out trade war, we listed what were Beijing's five at the time "nuclear" retaliation options; these included currency depreciation, sales of US Treasurys, blocking of US services, curbing of oil shipments and a rare-earth metal export ban, crippling US supply chains.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What President Trump, apparently is pathologically unable to see, is that the word "negotiations": takes honest, give and take, not "My way, or the Highway!!

I am still very concerned, about the degree to which the US is trying to militarily rattle them, by these so-called "Freedom of Access" journeys in the South China Sea by our Navy; unfortunately, trade wars can morph into shooting wars very quickly.

Trump Bypasses Congress To Approve $8 Billion In Arms Sales To Saudi Arabia, UAE

Not long after he reportedly agreed to send another 1,500-2,000 troops to the Middle East in yet another show of strength to combat an increasingly belligerent Iran, President Trump steamrolled Congress on Friday to approve $8 billion in arms sales to the UAE and Saudi Arabia and expedite delivery, WSJ reports.

The administration invoked a rarely used provision of American arms control laws to bypass Congress and approve the weapons sales, citing the escalating tensions with Iran as justification. WSJ's sources said the $8 billion figure encapsulates a package of 22 separate deals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would strongly suspect, that this new weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, isn't, at least, right now Iran-focused, but the continued stalemate in Yemen, which has the US fighting on the side of the Saudis, with no end in sight.

The Butcher of Yemen, is probably going to use most of this hardware to do carpet bombing of the country, so very few are left alive; in fact, in the corporate warmonger feeds, I still am hearing not a word about Yemen, from those annoying talking heads, just what a "threat" Iran is (supplying no specifics, of course). My potential "window" for an israel-delivered "false flag", to be blamed, of course, on Iran,would be any time between this Monday, 26 May, through Thursday, 4 July.

Preparations for War: NATO Intelligence Activity Around Russia’s Borders

In addition to the militarization of Eastern Europe, NATO partakes in active intelligence operations – be it by land, sea and air.

There are numerous reports of various intelligence (spy) aircraft going and even entering Russian airspace, and the Russian Aerospace Forces intercepting them.

Officially, NATO has 14 Boeing E-3A Airborne Warning & Control System (AWACS) aircraft with their radar domes, stationed at NATO Air Base (NAB) Geilenkirchen, Germany.

The fleet is involved in the reassurance measures following the Russia-Ukraine crisis, and in the tailored assurance measures for Turkey against the background of the Syrian crisis.

Under normal circumstances, the aircraft operates for about eight hours, at 30,000 feet (9,150 meters) and covers a surveillance area of more than 120,000 square miles (310,798 square kilometers).

Israel: “Wiped off The Map”. The Rumor of the Century, Fabricated by the US Media to Justify An All out War on Iran

Global Research Editor’s Note

The following text by Arash Norouzi first published by the Mossadegh Project and Global Research in January 2007 confirms that the alleged “Wiped Off the Map” statement by Iran’s president was never made.

In the light of recent US threats directed Iran, we are reposting this important article.

Iran does not constitute a threat to Israel.

The rumor was fabricated by the American media with a view to discrediting Iran’s head of state and providing a justification for waging an all out war on Iran. the article provides of media manipulation and “propaganda in action”.

Iran is blamed for refusing to abide by the “reasonable demands” of “the international community”.

In recent developments, Iran is persistently described as threatening the security of Israel. And Israel is described as instrumental in determining US foreign policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the $64,000 dollar question here is, if the US invades Iran, what will Russia and China's parliaments do?@?

Sit back and sing, "Kumbya"?!?

I rather think not!!

Foreign Aid That Costs an Arm and a Leg – LiterallyThe US-funded Israeli military is shooting so many unarmed Palestinians that the UN is warning of an amputation crisis in Gaza

My friend Andrew Rubin is an amputee. He’s lost his right hand, lower arm, right foot, and lower leg.

He used to be an avid runner and cyclist. He can’t do much of that anymore, although his walking is getting much better. Soon he might be able to run with his artificial leg.

Andrew is incredibly lucky.

The medical catastrophe that left his hand and foot so terribly damaged didn’t kill him. But when his limbs never healed even after a decade, he decided to undergo the amputations. It was his choice, and it was made much easier because he knew what lay ahead: the most advanced artificial limbs ever imagined. The kids call him Bionic Man now.

Andrew is lucky for another reason: He doesn’t live in Gaza.

According to the United Nations, 1,700 young Gazans are facing amputation, mainly of their legs, in the next two years. They’re among the 7,000 unarmed Palestinians in Gaza shot by Israeli snipers over the last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone targeting children non-combatants, is a monster in my world; what kind of psychotic, amoral piece of work, deliberately targets Palestinian children?!?

But their may be a deeper answer for this; when you wound or kill children, you maim or kill the future of a society.

That is precisely what is going on here.

Scott Adams: Slaughtermeter Reset to Zero Due to Social Media Manipulation, Pelosi

Comments at: https://twitter.com/ScottAdamsSays/status/1131923144522919936

Immunity bill submitted to Knesset with Netanyahu indictment pending

The Israeli Knesset is considering legislation that would grant government officials immunity from criminal prosecution, and just so happen to spare Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from three looming corruption indictments.
If the proposed amendment to the Immunity Law passes, elected officials could not be charged with a criminal offense unless the 120-member Knesset and the Knesset House Committee agreed to waive immunity. Should Netanyahu’s Likud Party secure a coalition and outnumber its rivals, the measure could effectively place them above the law for as long as they serve in government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing here, is so predictable, that you could have set your watch by it.

FORMER FEC CHAIR: FIRST AMENDMENT RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE ‘VIOLENT HATE CRIMES’ THAN TERRORISM

A “libertarian interpretation” of the First Amendment is responsible for more “violent hate crime” in the United States than terrorism, a former Federal Election Commission chair claimed Thursday.

“The libertarian interpretation of the 1st Amendment has permitted a huge spike in violent hate crimes in the US – many more than foreign attacks,” former FEC Chair Ann Ravel wrote on Twitter.

Julian Assange hit with 18 federal charges in new indictment

A federal grand jury in Virginia indicted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on 18 felony charges for his alleged involvement in the 2010 leak of classified documents by Chelsea Manning, the Justice Department announced Thursday.

The indictment includes 17 new counts of violations of the Espionage Act, in addition to one charge that had been unsealed after Assange was arrested in London in April. Each count carries a maximum sentence of between five and 10 years if convicted, although federal sentences are typically much shorter.

"The superseding indictment alleges that Assange was complicit with Chelsea Manning, a former intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army, in unlawfully obtaining and disclosing classified documents related to the national defense," the department said in a statement.

First Batch of Declassification to Include ‘Bucket 5’ – FBI Docs Exonerating Papadopoulos and Carter Page

President Trump on Thursday evening announced that at the recommendation of Attorney General Bill Barr, he has directed the Intel Community to quickly and fully cooperate with Barr’s investigation into surveillance activities.

President Trump ordered declassification of the intelligence related to the spying on his presidential campaign in 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This why the timing on Telly yesterday, featuring the Puddling Pel (as in the Nancy) who went ballistic, accusing Trump of a cover-up, and wanting for Congress to impeach him, only to be later exonerated in the Senate.

As these revelations drip-drip-drip into the American consciousness, Americans will realize who the real criminals were in Russiagate.

Now, having said that, there are many things President Trump has done, with which I have not agreed, such as withdrawing the US from the P5+1 deal with Iran; and I am hoping that the guy doesn't have this country on a path to nuclear armageddon with either Russia or China; but that being said, I firmly believe that this information will give my brother and sister Americans, a taste of the excrement sandwich the Demonocrats have been attempting to force down our collective throats, and decide that they no longer deserve the honor of representing the people of this country.

Trump gives AG Barr authority to declassify documents related to 2016 campaign surveillance

President Trump on Thursday night issued a memo giving Attorney General William Barr the authority to declassify any documents related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.

Trump also ordered the intelligence community to cooperate with Barr. The memo read: "The heads of elements of the intelligence community... and the heads of each department or agency that includes an element of the intelligence community shall promptly provide such assistance and information as the Attorney General may request in connection with that review."

"Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

 Sovereign Citizenship

Sovereign Citizenship is the status held by our forefathers. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and everyone else who won their freedom from the British Empire had this status. It was the birthright of all Americans, and we were generous in extending this most important right to foreign-born persons through the naturalization laws. With this status, our unalienable rights of life, liberty, and property couldn't be infringed. During the Civil War a method was discovered by the leading attorneys, financiers, and politicians of the day to deprive us of this status. Fortunately, we can get it back. This brings us to the question, "What are we getting back?" What does it mean to be a Sovereign Citizen?

HEAD OF REPORTERS WITHOUT BORDERS SAYS ISRAEL SHOT JOURNALISTS INTENTIONALLY

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
The director-general of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) said yesterday that the Israeli army had deliberately targeted journalists in the occupied Gaza Strip.

Christophe Deloire was speaking to the Jerusalem Post, having received the Dan David Prize in Tel Aviv on behalf of the international press freedoms watchdog.

“It is a war crime to target journalists because they are journalists,” Deloire told the paper. “When Israel shot those journalists [during the Great Return March protests], it was intentional.”

“The journalists could be clearly identified as journalists, with cameras and jackets and it could not be just by chance,” he added.

Referring to the United Nations’ Commission of Inquiry into the Gaza protests, Deloire pointed out that the report “confirmed what we already considered a fact”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised by these revelations; the Israeli government, and the IDF will do ANYTHING to keep the truth of these horrific attacks on Palestinians from getting out, as much as is humanly possible.

CRITICISMS OF NEW SAT ADVERSITY SCORE CONTINUE TO MOUNT

SOURCE: JENNIFER KABBANY VIA THE COLLEGE FIX
Authored by Jennifer Kabbany via The College Fix,

The recent decision by the Scholastic Aptitude Test to add a so-called adversity score to test takers’ results for college admissions’ officials to weigh has been almost universally panned.

Few think it’s a good idea to give students an “overall disadvantage level” ranking.

First, conservative scholar Heather Mac Donald laid out several big problems with the new index, noting it’s basically affirmative action and reinforces the soft bigotry of low expectations.

The College Fix’s senior reporter Christian Schneider also weighed in, calling it “just another invitation for fraud.”

“Clearly, lying about one’s racial identity is wrong – but in a country where racial makeup is growing more complex and college admittance is as competitive as ever, students can hardly be blamed for trying to give themselves a leg up,” he opined.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I graduated from college with a 3.75 GPA; and I had a "learning disability" which was not even uncovered until Mike and I started dating.

He took me to a safety-approved gun range, and as someone who always thought of themselves to be right-handed, I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn , or the target, with my right hand.

Mike looked at me, smiling somewhat knowingly,and said: "Giggles and grins, honey, try doing this with your left hand; and I was able to hit the target much more toward the center, and indeed, in the center frequently; I was right handed, left-eye dominant, which is described as "mixed brain dominance", which is why, to this day - at 70 - I cannot, for the life of me, sightread a piano score, cold. (And yet, I am a published composer! :-)

I wish these kinds of things could be diagnosed, and treated very early in all of our childrens' educations; it would make their subsequent learning, far easier, and much more successful.

WE FINALLY KNOW WHERE THE SCANDALOUS OZONE-DESTROYING CHEMICALS ARE REALLY COMING FROM

SOURCE: CARLY CASSELLA @ SCIENCEALERT.COM
It's been exactly one year since US scientists reported a mysterious surge in ozone-destroying chemicals, known as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

Banned in 1987 under the globally signed Montreal Protocol, there was only one explanation: somewhere out there, in an unknown location, someone must have gone rogue, setting back progress on the ozone hole by a decade or more.

After much speculation, the whereabouts and magnitude of these harmful emissions has been confirmed in scientific research. As earlier reporting in The New York Times had already suggested, they seem to be coming from the northeast coast of mainland China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, geopolitically, here is one of the West's "cage the rage, and engage" opportunities,by not screaming "China bad!" for this happening, but collaborating with China's top scientists, getting the Chinese government's blessing, to work with them to reduce this.

In my world, collaboration trumps confrontation, nearly every darn time.

EPA CYBERSECURITY WEAKNESSES ARE GOING UNTRACKED AND UNPATCHED

SOURCE: NEXTGOV
The Environmental Protection Agency has a detailed process for dealing with new cybersecurity weaknesses: develop a plan to remediate with clear goals and milestones, then attack the problem. The only issue: Those plans aren’t being logged, managed or tracked, according to the agency inspector general.

The agency created an automated tool for logging vulnerabilities that will take time to remediate and track progress through official plans of action and milestones. According to an inspector general report released Tuesday, many of those plans were never entered into the system, meaning they were never tracked and, in some cases, the vulnerabilities were never patched.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This ... is officially horrible, and the US government needs to find a better way of organizing, and tracking, what is going on at the EPA with their computers.

DARPA TO CREATE MIND-CONTROLLED WEAPONS

BY DAGNY TAGGART
Last year, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced that it was seeking noninvasive ways “to achieve high levels of brain-system communications without surgery.” The techniques would “allow precise, high-quality connections to specific neurons or groups of neurons.”

The agency wants to create mind-controlled weapons of war, as it (vaguely) explained in two recent press releases.

To achieve this goal, DARPA recently formed a program called Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3).

DARPA WANTS SOLDIERS TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL MACHINES WITH THEIR MINDS.
According to a press release published on May 20, 2019, the agency has awarded funding to six companies to support N3:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, what could possibly go wrong with systems like that, except for everything?!?

I would counsel extreme caution in the development of this technology; there is so much room for so much to go completely haywire, that it is hard to know where to start evaluation of severe potential problems, both for the weapons,and the soldiers who use them.

Unsanctioned signs in off-leash park ask owners to keep dogs away from Muslims

The city of Pitt Meadows is removing unsanctioned signs posted in one of its off-leash dog parks asking owners to keep their canines away from Muslim people.

A number of flyers were recently posted in Hoffman Park asking dog owners to keep their pets leashed.

"Many Muslims live in this area and dogs are considered filthy in Islam. Please keep your dogs on a leash and away from the Muslims who live in this community," the flyers read.

It's not clear who posted the signs in the community, but several were brought to city hall by area residents because they include the city logo and the email address for city council.

 NXIVM TRIAL: MEXICAN FORMER TEEN SLAVE TESTIFIES AS MORE MEXICO TRAFFICKING CONNECTIONS EXPOSED

SOURCE: BIG LEAGUE POLITICS
A former NXIVM sex cult slave named “Daniela” testified Thursday in the trial of cult leader Keith Raniere, noting that she joined the cult at age 16 in 2002.

The alleged visa and immigration fraud involved in Daniela’s years with the cult underscores the extent to which NXIVM had deep connections to powerful people in Mexico, including Emiliano Salinas, the son of a former Mexican president.

Robert Gavin of the Albany Times-Union reported:

The witness said her tourist visa and her father's visa were taken in Atlanta in October 2004. She went back to Mexico, she said, and Raniere arranged for her to fly to Canada and get picked up on Christmas Eve and taken to Albany. But the plan had problems.#NXIVM #NXIVMTrial

SUPERBUGS AND THE ULTIMATE ECONOMIC WEAPON: FOOD

SOURCE: CHARLES HUGH SMITH
The food-exporting superpowers are easy to identify.

As my esteemed colleague Michael Snyder chronicled in a recent Zero Hedge post, world agricultural production is under assault from extreme weather and diseases such as African swine fever. Floods & Drought Devastate Crops All Over The Planet; Is A Global Food Crisis Be Coming?

Everyone understands extreme weather is a danger to food production. The overuse of antibiotics is less well understood. As this article explains, most antibiotics are given to livestock, which then become breeding grounds for antibiotic-resistant microbes, which are known as superbugs once they develop immunity to all conventional antibiotics.

Are antibiotics turning livestock into superbug factories?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the reason, that you need to know how your food is processed, and what has been done to it, in order to build, as much as possible, an antibiotic-free lifestyle.

I know that most moms and dads I know, would rather buy fresh, organic meat, with which to fee their families; some chains have started doing this, at least for a small selection of meats and vegetables; this is starting to happen at both our "big box" store, and the smaller grocery store we patronize.

So please, the next time you are at your favorite store, ask your butcher, and your veggies supervisor, to make more available for you, in terms of organic produce and meat.

Yes, it will be a lot more expensive, which is why you need to learn to use meat as a "seasoning", rather than the full course in your meals. But the opportunities for creating a healthier life for yourself, and your family , will be well worth the cost.

THEY'RE BACK! 3D-PRINTED GUNS ARE UNSTOPPABLE AND HERE TO STAY

SOURCE: MAC SLAVO VIA SHTFPLAN

An entirely decentralized network of self-defense rights advocates have taken to the internet to provide plans for 3D-printed guns. It looks like the 3D guns are unregulatable and unstoppable. They’re anonymously sharing the blueprints and advice while simultaneously building an unstoppable community.

Unlike previous attempts to popularize 3D-printed guns, this newer operation is entirely decentralized. There’s no headquarters, no trademarks, and no real leader. The people behind it already understand that this means they can’t be stopped by governments and their laws or regulations.

“If they [the government] were to come after me, they’d first have to find my identity,” says Ivan the Troll, a member of the group. “I’m one of many, many like-minded individuals who’re doing this sort of work.”

And to the governments who really thought that they were going to be able to regulate and control this; whatever window you thought you had, is long gone.

Death Of Press Freedoms? Julian Assange Charged Under The Espionage Act On 17 Counts

By Aaron Kesel

WikiLeaks founder and former editor Julian Assange has been charged under The Espionage Act on 17 new counts in a superseding indictment for his role in obtaining and publishing classified military and diplomatic documents prior to his extradition hearing on May 30th, Reuters reported.

The charges carry a shocking sentence of 175 years in prison if found guilty by the secret Espionage court — a horrendous statement to send to journalists and truth tellers.

“The Department of Justice wants to imprison Assange for crimes allegedly committed outside of the United States. This extraterritorial application of US law is explicit throughout the indictment… thereby classifying any territory in the world as subject to US law,” WikiLeaks wrote in a statement, adding...

Former Obama Labor Secretary Bans Travel From LA County to Alabama Over Abortion Law

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, led by Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, a former cabinet member in the Obama administration, has voted to ban travel to the state of Alabama over their new pro-life law.

Solis authored a motion to ban travel associated with official county business to the Yellowhammer State for a period of one year, and the board voted in the affirmative.

The ban specifically excludes certain emergency response needs that may arise. One also has to wonder just how much business officials from Los Angeles County would have in a state over 2,000 miles away.

Vast Majority Of Americans Reject Attack On Iran; Half Expect War "Within Few Years"

War with Iran remains a deeply unpopular prospect among the American people, but a new opinion poll conducted by Reuters and polling organization Ipsos found there's not much optimism concerning the likelihood of getting entangled in a future conflict. The poll released Tuesday found that half of all Americans see the US and Iran being at war "within the next few years".

As of early this week it appeared the White House as well as Pentagon were firmly signaling the US has climbed down the escalation ladder, with statements claiming the US military build-up near the Persian Gulf of the past two weeks had forced Iran to put its planned actions against US troops "on hold" in order to "recalculate".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu wants this war, and at double-march speed time.

He cannot wait for Trump to turn around and do something logical here, so I would say that a reasonable "window" for a false flag event, to be blamed on Iran, would be between Monday, Memorial Day, and Thursday, 4 July, which is the US's main patriotic event.

Please understand that I would hate like heck to be right; but this is what I see, looking at, with all the pieces of the puzzle in view.

Bill Blain: "Xi Is In Much More Trouble Than We Think"

In terms of market action, trade fears really seem to have settled in as the dominant theme on markets. But if markets are simply wondering when there will be a solution, then they may be waiting for the wrong thing. While the mood remains negative as the market waits for a US/China agreement/resolution, maybe the new long-term reality is an increasingly and deliberately bifurcated global economy? The US and its allies vs China. If it sounds familiar – it should in terms of 1945-89. The West won the last Cold War on the same basis – and the economic benefits accrued to the free capitalist states, a theme the Neo-coms are increasingly banding around. You just imagine the scene in the war room: “This is time Mr President..”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told her Democratic colleagues that President Trump "wants to be impeached" in order to be vindicated by the Senate, according to ABC News. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told her Democratic colleagues that President Trump "wants to be impeached" in order to be vindicated by the Senate, according to ABC News.

Pelosi made the suggestion during a Thursday morning meeting according to two Democratic aides, who said that Pelosi also called Trump's actions "villainous."

The aide said that Pelosi was implying that she will stick to her current plan to keep investigating the president and his administration without jumping to impeachment, but Pelosi didn’t explicitly say that in her remarks. -ABC News

Pelosi's comments come one day after she and President Trump traded barbs after a contentious White House meeting in which Trump effectively said that Democrats' efforts to continue investigating him were getting in the way of bipartisan negotiations over infrastructure spending.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pel strikes again; but this time, I think it is "misdirection", to keep attention focused on Trump, rather than on the Demoncratic antics which brought the country to Russia-gate in the first place.
