The US Government Just Killed 150 People In A Country They Aren’t Even At War With

By John Vibes

This week, the US government used drones and airstrikes to fire missiles and drop bombs in a country that they aren’t at war with, killing at least 150 people. This act of aggression took place in Somalia, where the US military regularly stages drone strikes and other attacks, despite the fact that they have not declared war on the country. The government claims that every single one of the victims were “militants” or terrorists; however, they have not revealed the identities of the victims and have not provided any evidence to support their claims...

Attacks on lawful governments of this type are today called “color revolutions”—rose (Georgia), orange (Ukraine), and pink (Kyrgyzstan). They overthrew and murdered Muammar Qaddafi in Libya more than three years ago, reducing the country to violent chaos that continues today.

They overthrew the elected government of Ukraine in February 2014, installing a government laced with the Bandera Nazis and cabinet
appointments made in Washington, in preparation for triggering a war with Russia.

The underlying method of the color revolutions is the mass mobilization of mostly well-meaning people, with a false promise—and false concept—of democracy. It is not new.

US National Debt: Why Russia Plays in the Largest Ponzi Scheme in the World

Russian economist Mikhail Delyagin explains the intricacies of US national debt, and why Russia continues to participate in what he calls 'the largest Ponzi scheme in the world'. "Using the position of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, the United States is able to stimulate its economy by increasing public debt," Delyagin writes, in a recent article for independent Russian newspaper Svobodnaya Pressa: "The ability to increase the debt is not just a guarantee of America's competitiveness and influence, but a condition of its economic existence. The US lives on borrowed money, which it forces the rest of the world to pay for. In 1980, the national debt was $0.9 trillion dollars (33% of GDP). By 1990 it was $3.2 trillion (55.9%). In 2000 it was $5.6 trillion (58%, assisted somewhat by Clinton's budget surpluses in the 90s). In 2010 it was $13.8 trillion (96.5% of GDP), and as of the end of January 2016, it sits at $19 trillion (103.7% of GDP).

NSA Chief Warns Black Energy Attack On U.S. Power Grid A “Matter Of When, Not If”

On March 1, 2016, Admiral Michael S. Rogers, U.S. Navy, Commander, U.S. Cyber Command, Director, National Security Agency/Chief, Central Security Service, was a keynote speaker, one of many the Obama administration rolled out at the 2016 RSA Conference, in order to push for more cooperation by the tech industry with government agencies, but Rogers’ warnings and predictions should be enough to convince even the most skeptical among us that a “lights out” scenario as well as a massive cyber attack on financial institutions, is not a “conspiracy” or “doom and gloom,” but is an eventuality.

German Politician Willy Wimmer: 'It's Time We Cleaned Up This Mess in Germany'

Mr. Wimmer: Germany has not seen comparable clamp downs on freedom of speech since the Nazi era and the GDR... at least since the war in Yugoslavia, which broke international law, the western mainstream media and public TV and radio stations have degenerated to a warmongering tool for interested parties. This situation poses a deadly threat to our country. And when we just compare contemporary western media with Russia media, we see the consequences. In Russia media you are allowed to develop and to discuss various thoughts and ideas, whereas in western media, the desired outcome is determined a priori by the journalists in charge, and these guys are just select suitable individuals out of the public or politics, who will support their pre-established opinion. Subsequently, these selected individuals are allowed to show their face and their voice for just 20 seconds or so to the audience, and that is the final result of these radio or television shows.

Central Banks Are About To Leave Fiat Addicted Stock Markets In Agony

By Brandon Smith

Many investors today are not very familiar with market history and tend to live only in the day-to-day mainstream narrative while watching little red and green graphs move up and down. This is not so much an issue in a relatively stable economic environment. The problem is, today we live in the most unstable economic conditions possible.

These investors and analysts are simply not aware that some of the most exciting stock rallies occur during the most volatile crises, and so they interpret every rally of a few days to a few weeks as a signal for recovery. However, in this kind of fiscal environment, all the gains made in a few weeks can be lost in moments...

New Cold Warriors Bare Fangs Ahead of Next Syria Peace Talks

In renewing their bids to demonize Russia, our new cold warriors hope to work a twofer: derail the next round of Syria peace talks while further undermining US-Russian relations. The sabotage takes several forms: through congressional hearings, through think tank events, and through a steady stream of anti-Russian stories in major mainstream publications...The tendency of the new cold warriors to praise anyone thought to be standing up to Russia, no matter how noxious, can be seen in their fulsome expressions of solidarity with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Although Erdogan jails journalists and opposition leaders at a rate that would make Putin blanch, he is held in high esteem within the military-media-think tank nexus. Indeed, Turkey’s by now well-known collusion with ISIS is studiously ignored in favor a narrative that paints Turkey as the latest target of Putin’s Russia...
