"The NSS [National Security State] represents and serves the interests of a tiny elite. Its economic policies of "trickling-up", enforced by the machine gun, are rationalized on the ground that growth in the long run will trickle down to the lower orders. This is a self-serving ideology designed mainly to allow the western public to think well of themselves and their own country." -- Edward S.

Diplomat: NATO’s actions provoke risks and challenges to Russian security interests

NATO’s actions have provoked risks and challenges to Russia’s security interests and frustrated confidence, Anton Mazur, the leader of the Russian delegation to the Vienna talks on military security and arms control, said on Tuesday.

"Despite our warnings of counter-productivity and risks of NATO’s eastwards expansion, the borders of the biggest military bloc have nearly reached Russian borders," the Russian Foreign Ministry quoted him as saying at the annual security review conference of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). "Works have started in the territory of new members to develop military infrastructure. New formats of military activities have been launched on the ground, in the air and at sea, including a mission on air patrolling and multinational exercises."

5 revelations from Chilcot’s damning report into the Iraq war

The report says then-Prime Minister Tony Blair deliberately exaggerated the threat posed by the Iraqi regime as he sought to make the case for military action to MPs and the public. Blair had disregarded warnings about the potential consequences of military action and relied too heavily on his own beliefs, Chilcot says.

In July 2002, well over six months before the invasion of Iraq, Blair wrote to then-US President George Bush promising him that the UK would be there with him “whatever,” Chilcot says.

AP FACT CHECK: Clinton email claims collapse under FBI probe

The agency's yearlong investigation found that she did not, as she claimed, turn over all her work-related messages for release. It found that her private email server did carry classified emails, also contrary to her past statements. And it made clear that Clinton used many devices to send and receive email despite her statements that she set up her email system so that she only needed to carry one.

FBI Director James Comey's announcement Tuesday that he will not refer criminal charges to the Justice Department against Clinton spared her from prosecution and a devastating political predicament. But it left much of her account in tatters and may have aggravated questions of trust swirling around her Democratic presidential candidacy.

A look at Clinton's claims since questions about her email practices as secretary of state surfaced and how they compare with facts established in the FBI probe:

Revealed: Blair dismissed London anti-war march as 'millions of liberal-minded people taking to the streets to defend the most illiberal regime on earth'

Tony Blair blasted the biggest protest march in British history as 'fatuous' in a memo to George W Bush days after the UK and US launched the Iraq War.

In a note titled 'The Fundamental Goal', Mr Blair told the US President a poor communications strategy ahead of the war had left 'wholly warped views' of American politics in Europe and elsewhere.

The then-Prime Minister advised him to 'keep the policy' of tackling terror and weapons of mass destruction but to 'change the presentation'.

Mr Blair said Mr Bush was right to want to spread freedom by delivering security and told him: 'That's why, though Iraq's WMD is the immediate justification for action, ridding Iraq of Saddam is the real prize.'

Chilcot Report on Iraq War Offers Devastating Critique of Tony Blair

Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain went to war alongside the United States in Iraq in 2003 on the basis of flawed intelligence that went unchallenged, a shaky legal rationale, inadequate preparation and exaggerated public statements, an independent inquiry into the war concluded in a report published on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media is declaring the Chilcot report "devastating" but it is in fact another whitewash. This article echoes the claim of "flawed intelligence" but as the Downing Street Memo and Blair's "Dodgy Dossier" prove, there was a deliberate intention to deceive the people of the US and UK with the fiction of nuclear weapons, in order to invade Iraq for purely economic reasons.

'I will be with you, whatever': Blair's fawning messages to George W Bush reveal how the two plotted to come up with a 'clever plan' to 'deal' with Saddam

One message shows that - as soon as the day after the 9/11 attacks - Blair told Bush they should immediately tackle states and individuals with weapons of mass destruction and justify it later.

In another six-page memo to Bush - sent when Blair was telling the British public that no decision to go to war had been made - the then-Prime Minister said he would do 'whatever' it took to remove Saddam Hussein.

In one of the earliest notes to be released, a private letter to the US President on September 12, 2001, Mr Blair both offered support to bring to justice the hijackers who destroyed the Twin Towers and looked ahead to the 'next stage after this evil'.

"It is clear that Secretary Clinton possibly jeopardized the safety and security of our citizens and nation through her use of private email servers," the Virginia Republican said in a Tuesday statement. "None should be above the law, and the American people need to know that federal law enforcement is taking this misconduct seriously."

Goodlatte "raised several concerns" with Comey in a phone call and peppered him with questions in a letter following up on that conversation. The inquiries centered on how Comey concluded that Clinton shouldn't be prosecuted for "gross negligence" in light of his conclusion that she showed "extreme carelessness" in handling classified information, including top-secret military information.

"If any other American with a security clearance had placed such sensitive information at risk, is there nothing the FBI would have done to recommend sanctions against such person's extreme carelessness?" Goodlatte wrote.

Chilcot: Blair invaded Iraq before exhausting peaceful options

Tony Blair’s government made up its mind to take Britain into the U.S.-led war in Iraq before all peaceful options had been exhausted, and based the decision on “flawed intelligence,” according to the long-awaited Chilcot Report released on Wednesday.

Tony Blair has 'got his comeuppance today': Mum of Glasgow soldier killed in Iraq is pleased with Chilcot report

In it, report author Sir John Chilcot criticised Tony Blair - the Prime Minister in 2003 who presented the case for war and led the invasion - for committing to backing US counterpart George W Bush over Iraq.

It also criticised Government ministers' justification for, planning and conduct of a military intervention which "went badly wrong, with consequences to this day".

Several military operations were described in the report as "hastily prepared" and led to equipment shortages for British personnel - an issue which several victims' families have long campaigned over.

Chilcot vows his Iraq War report will NOT be a whitewash and 'a few' people will get the blame but admits he is 'not judge and jury' as military families tell him troops cannot carry the can for politicians

It has been seven years in the making, but the results of the inquiry into Britain's invasion of Iraq in 2003 will finally be unveiled today.

Thirteen years after British troops crossed into Iraq, Sir John Chilcot will deliver his verdict on the UK's most controversial military engagement of the post-war era - and he has warned the Government, army and intelligence service to expect criticism.

The report, believed to have cost around £10million to produce, is published amid calls for former prime minister Tony Blair to be held to account for 'misleading the public and Parliament' when taking the UK into the conflict.

FLASHBACK - The Downing Street memo

There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war.

FBI boss’ outrageous double standard in letting Hillary skate

The fix was in.

Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey painted a devastating picture of Hillary Clinton’s reckless lawbreaking with her emails and the damage it likely caused — but then recommended no charges against her.

When it comes to the Clintons, say goodbye to the rule of law.

Comey said the bureau looked for evidence that “classified information was improperly stored or transmitted” on Clinton’s personal email servers, in violation of a “statute making it a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way.”

Sure enough, his agents found plenty: 110 emails “in 52 email chains” were considered classified “at the time they were sent or received.”

That included eight “Top Secret” chains, 36 with “Secret” information and eight more that were “Confidential.” Another 2,000 were classified “Confidential” later.

UK COPS ROUTINELY RAIDED POLICE DATABASES TO SATISFY PERSONAL INTEREST OR MAKE MONEY ON THE SIDE

Between 2011-2015, there were more than 800 individual UK police personnel who raided official databases to amuse themselves, out of idle curiosity, or for personal financial gain; and over 800 incidents in which information was inappropriately leaked outside of the police channels. The incidents are reported in a new Big Brother Watch publication, which also reports that in most cases, no disciplinary action was taken against the responsible personnel, and only 3% resulted in criminal prosecution or conviction. The incidents in the data-set show that this culture of impunity has created a casual disregard for public privacy. There was the cop who tried to Snapchat a friend with a picture of a crime victim's driver's license in order to make fun of his name; another one who stalked women he was attracted to in order to gain information that would help him befriend them; cops who sold photos of confidential documents to unnamed third parties; and so on.

Quartet report biased in favor of Israeli occupiers: OIC

“The report is not objective while describing Israel’s occupation and its illegal policies which hinder a political solution,” Madani said.

You stated that the handling of top secret classified material by Hillary Clinton and her aides was “extremely careless.” Lawyers say that is the definition of the “gross negligence” statute that provides for prosecution of anyone who allows classified information to be mishandled.

Foreign-backed militants committing war crimes in Syria: Amnesty

Amnesty International says militant groups backed by Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, and the US are involved in "a chilling wave of abductions, torture and summary killings" amounting to "war crimes" in Syria.

In a report on Tuesday, Amnesty named al-Nusra Front, which is the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, as well as the so-called Ahrar al-Sham, Nureddin Zinki, the Levant Front and Division 16 as groups engaged in war crimes in Syria.

The groups have detained and tortured lawyers, journalists, and children among others for criticizing them, the London-based group said.

Some of the groups in question “are believed to have the support of governments such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the US,” it added.

The US has thwarted a Russian bid in the United Nations to put Ahrar al-Sham on the list of terrorist groups.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, for the current US Administration, "the ends (regime-changing Syria) justifies the means", even when those means include the torture and assassinations of children.

Way to go, US government; you've made this country the "Assassination Nation" in the eyes of the world!! Congratulations on aligning with such an heroic, human-rights and democracy-centric group of guys!!

Saxo Fears "Cascading Implosion" As Italian Bank Collapse Continues

The biggest theme emerging in the post-Brexit world is the evolving banking crisis in Italy which has actually been under way since the beginning of the year as the new non-performing exposure rules started to be enforced by the European Banking Authority.

UniCredit, Intesa, Monte Paschi, Banco Popolare, and UBI collectively had €119 billion in unprovisioned non-performing loans at the end of Q1 with UniCredit’s exposure being the critical piece in the overall European banking system.

The Italian banking system has around €400bn in total non-performing loans. The aggregate common equity among Italian publicly-listed banks was around €125B (as of the end of Q1) and around 75% of the uncovered non-performing loans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no way to ultimately limit the contagion which will most likely hit the US banking sector from this, because of the connectedness of financial systems world-wide.

Peak FBI Corruption? Meet Bryan Nishimura, Found Guilty For "Removal And Retention Of Classified Materials"

In a scandalous announcement, FBI director James Comey moments ago said that "although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information" and he gave extensive evidence of just that, "our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case." He added that "prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past."

What is shocking is that the FBI director was clearly ignoring the US code itself, where in Section 793, subsection (f),"Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information", it makes it quite clear that intent is not a key consideration in a case like this when deciding to press charges, to wit:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

This guy did precisely what Clinton did, and got sentenced to probation and a fine, and Clinton skates?!?

There is no more justice in this country, period, end of discussion.

When Trump Fought the Racists

And so the cry went up.

“Trump is a racist!” was the mocking cry from an off-stage Larry David when Trump recently hosted Saturday Night Live. The David bit was designed to make fun not of Trump but Trump’s critics. In this case a left-wing group calling itself deportracism.com which, without the slightest sense of irony, put together a thoroughly racist ad having children spewing obscenities as they proclaimed their allegiance not to America and its ideals but rather to their race. A chilling reminder of all those fresh-faced young Germans of long ago pledging allegiance to their Aryan race.

All of this is already old news. But there is a much older “old news” story about Trump that has now resurfaced — a story that paints a highly accurate portrait of the real Donald Trump — the guy who has no time for racism and anti-Semitism and stood up in public to fight both.

IRAQ – U.S. refused to bomb ISIS convoy because it contained CIA advisers

At the end of the battle for Fallujah, a convoy of around 500 vehicles allowed Isis fighters to flee the city to Syria.

The Pentagon refused to bomb the convoy because the vehicles belonged to civilians and they were probably transporting the wives and children of some jihadists.

However, the Iraqi army decided to bomb it, destroying more than 200 vehicles and killing their occupants.

Iraqi soldiers are convinced that the Pentagon had received instruction to let the CIA advisers, that were training the jihadists, escape.

Trump Hammers On Brexit, “Independence Day” And Repudiation Of Rule By The Global Elite

One thing is clear, whether or not everyone will agree with what is said, Trump is at least speaking more directly than most politicians do

It turned out that Trump wasted no time in making sure that the people of America understood that what had been done in the UK can be done in the United States.

Globalists and Neocons Prove Incapable of Understanding Reality

If Trump wants to put America first, he needs to start firing the Neoconservatives and their lackeys from the White House and putting them on trial for making Americans look really bad.

Rather than listening and learning and modifying their actions, the ruling elites stick to “more of the same.” This process clearly emblematized by the endless procession of Bushes and Clintons replacing each other in the positions of power.

China says wants peace after newspaper warns on South China Sea clash

China's government sought to downplay fears of conflict in the South China Sea after an influential state-run newspaper said on Tuesday that Beijing should prepare for military confrontation in the area.

The joint editorials in the Chinese and English editions of the Global Times were published as tension mounted ahead of a July 12 ruling by an international court hearing competing claims of China and the Philippines in the South China Sea.

The newspaper said the dispute had already been complicated by U.S. intervention and now faced further escalation due to the threat posed by the tribunal to China's sovereignty.

"Washington has deployed two carrier battle groups around the South China Sea, and it wants to send a signal by flexing its muscles: As the biggest powerhouse in the region, it awaits China's obedience," the Global Times said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is is the US government, desperately attempting to goad China into military action, which is the ultimate culprit here.

And the reason?!? To prevent the rise in popularity of the Chinese currency, some of which is now gold-backed, and not convertible into US dollars.

These actions by the US military are counterproductive to a reasonable, lasting peace in the area.

Just because something is the most pig-headedly ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government can do, in a geopolitical confrontation, is absolutely no guarantee that it won't do it.

For Obama’s Secret Wars, the Record Suggests a Far Worse Reality

Targeted killings or assassinations beyond the battlefield remain a highly charged subject. Most controversial of all is the number of civilians killed in US covert and clandestine drone strikes since 2002.

When President Obama apologised for the accidental 2015 killing of US aid worker Warren Weinstein, he revealed that the US had kept the target building under surveillance for “hundreds of hours” – yet had never known there were civilians inside. Many of the women and children credibly reported killed by the CIA in Pakistan have died in similar circumstances – though few of their deaths have ever been conceded.

Then there have been the more shocking tactics employed by the CIA. There was the deliberate targeting of funerals and rescuers, again first revealed by the Bureau. And the widespread use of so-called signature strikes during the Obama years – the targeting of suspects based not on their known identities, but on their behavioural patterns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NO public US agency has the right to lie to either the American people or the world, in terms of the real scope and breadth of these numbers; and if the American people do not, peacefully, protest extrajudicial assassinations abroad out of existence, we may well see "justifications" for practicing the process at home right here in this country.

And one has to speculate; are the perpetual extrajudicial assassinations creating perpetual war from which the US government and military will never be able extricate themselves, and is this, possibly, the goal?!?

As reported at globalresearch.com today:

It was revealed by the Intercept through leaked US government documents that civilians may account for as much as 90% of all casualties from drone strikes. In its first article in a long series detailing America’s drone operations titled, “The Assassination Complex,” it reports: …documents detailing a special operations campaign in northeastern Afghanistan, Operation Haymaker, show that between January 2012 and February 2013, U.S. special operations airstrikes killed more than 200 people. Of those, only 35 were the intended targets. During one five-month period of the operation, according to the documents, nearly 90 percent of the people killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets. In Yemen and Somalia, where the U.S. has far more limited intelligence capabilities to confirm the people killed are the intended targets, the equivalent ratios may well be much worse. And upon viewing the leaked Operation Haymaker documents, it becomes clear that America’s drone operations in Afghanistan have admittedly very little tactical value in eliminating specific “terrorists,” and the actual “benefits” noted amid these operations is instead the perpetuation of terror, fear and sociopolitical division in targeted areas, including among civilian populations. Considering these noted “benefits,” high civilian casualty rates of up to 90% makes sense. If the goal is to simply instill fear, it doesn’t matter who dies, just as long as someone does. First Priority: Smashing Resistance, Not Stopping Terrorists It should be remembered that nations like Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Pakistan are home to fiercely independent networks of localized tribes. These tribes, particularly in Yemen or Afghanistan, refuse to recognize the authority of US-installed client governments and their existence not only undermines central government authority, they pose a direct threat to its continued existence. This helps explain another aspect of America’s drone operations that have left the general public occasionally outraged but mostly confused. That is, the propensity of drones striking weddings. In Western culture, weddings are generally a family affair with little to do with the actual community they take place in. In traditional cultures like Yemen and Afghanistan, weddings are a central community affair. Beyond just friends and family, everyone from the community participates, with various local religious, educational, political and even military leaders attending or even presiding over the event. It is difficult to believe that drone operators would target a wedding even if a specific, high value terrorist target was present, understanding the full scope of collateral damage that would occur. In fact, in a 2013 speech at the National Defense University, US President Barack Obama would explicitly claim: And before any strike is taken, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured — the highest standard we can set. Considering this, it is likely such operations, certain to incur civilian deaths, are instead approved of for the specific purpose of obliterating the very source of a targeted community’s strength and independence, leaving local people reeling, leaderless and at the mercy of the central government Washington has installed into power. In other words, the US is not necessarily “hunting terrorists,” it is eliminating resistance to the political order it is attempting to reach into targeted nations with.

This is your government, gone completely mad, acting in your name and with your tax dollars, and completely unaccountable to We the People.

MEXICAN PRESIDENT DEMANDS U.S. MERGE WITH MEXICO, CANADA

Nieto is attending a North American leaders summit in Ottawa on Wednesday to push the years-long, globalist proposal that would combine the U.S., Mexico and Canada into a regional entity at the expense of U.S. national sovereignty, which starts with joint energy agreements.

?“The purpose of this visit is to renew our bilateral relationship, to give it new life, to find ways to advance the prosperity and competitiveness of North America,” Nieto said, with emphasis added on North America.
He’s not the first Mexican president to push the NAU; Vicente Fox also pushed the globalist plan, but he was so vocal about it, the Bush administration finally told him to keep quiet to avoid negative press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the President of Mexico is DEMANDING that the US join the NAU?!?

The President of the same Mexico rife with corruption, drugs, poverty, and the assassination of teachers, who desperately are trying to get better outcomes for their students?!?

As reported at commondreams.org on 22 June, 2016:

The Mexican government's deadly crackdown on a teacher's union protest has rattled the nation in recent days, as 200,000 doctors on Wednesday joined the ongoing national strike against President Enrique Peña Nieto's neoliberal reforms. Anti-government sentiment is mounting after police forces opened fire on a teacher protest in Oaxaca on Sunday, killing at least eight. Since then, two high level government officials from that state, Oaxaca Minister of Indigenous Affairs Adelfo Regino Montes and Secretary of Labor Daniel Gutierrez, have resigned in protest of the "authoritarian actions that repress and kill Oaxacan people who defend their rights and the government’s negligence to any possibility of dialogue," as Gutierrez put it.

Is Mexico really the partner with which the US government would want to align, given these horrific situations and the suppression Nieto has visited upon his own people, even to the point of assassinating Oaxaca's teachers?!? Were it put to a referendum of the American people, chances are, that they would say no, definitively; but such a referendum will never happen.

Such a partnership will not lift Mexico out of its current state of unrest and poverty; it will, however, drag the standards of living in both the US and Canada down to Mexico's level, which is precisely what the globalists want.

As evidenced by the Brexit, such a united economic and geopolitical entity is great for the one percenters, but in general lousy for working people living under the strictures of such a union.
