Iran mulls ways to sell oil if Europe supports US sanctions

“We are hopeful that the European countries can meet their commitments but even if they can’t, we are seeking solutions to sell our oil and transfer its revenues,” Iranian Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri said on Sunday, as quoted by state news agency IRNA. Washington had earlier announced plans to eliminate Tehran’s revenue from oil exports. Iran also said that no OPEC member can take over its share of oil exports, as Saudi Arabia offered to pump more oil in response to US sanctions on Iran.

US troops to stay in Iraq ‘as long as needed’ – spokesman

The US will keep its troops in Iraq “as long as [it] thinks they’re needed,” Colonel Sean Ryan, the spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve, said. “The main reason, after Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS] is defeated militarily, is the stabilization efforts and we still need to be there for that, so that’s one of the reasons we’ll maintain a presence,” he stated. According to the operation spokesman, the number of US troops could go down, but “it just depends on when NATO comes in and they help train the [Iraqi] forces as well.” Currently, there are 5,200 US troops based in Iraq.

Sanctions, Sanctions, Sanctions – The Final Demise Of The Dollar Hegemony? Authored by Peter Koenig via The Saker Blog,

What is really transpiring is that Washington is isolating itself, that the uni-polar world is moving towards a multipolar world, one that increasingly disregards and disrespects the United States, despises her bullying and warmongering – killing and shedding misery over hundreds of millions of people, most of them defenseless children, women and elderly, by direct military force or by proxy-led conflicts –

Yemen is just one recent examples, causing endless human suffering to people who have never done any harm to their neighbors, let alone to Americans. Who could have any respect left for such a nation, called the United States of America, for the people behind such lying monsters?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that there will be a war, or at least some very large, and hostile US/Israeli military attack against Iran to attempt to save US dollar hegemony by Monday, 5 November, and this is why.

The US Deep State's goal, for decades now, is to control all the oil in the Middle East, and insure that such oil is only sold for US dollars.

Sunday, 4 November, is the "drop dead date" given by President Trump for the world to stop buying Iranian crude oil. Some countries have already stated that they will refuse to honor that date, such as China, and will continue to buy oil from Iran.

I think that the US will start with sanctions, but move to a Naval blockade in the Persian Gulf very quickly, to insure that no Iranian oil can get out of that particular bottleneck. I see the US forward deploying from Saudi Arabia; Bahrain, currently home to the 6th fleet; Qatar, and the UAE. Israeli forces, will be used for intelligence, rather than battle forces.

The regime change in Tehran, if it is accomplished, will put a great deal of the world's oil wealth under the command and control of the US, which will insure that it is only sold ... for US dollars.

Populist Swedish Leader Doubles Down on Wanting Out of European Union

Populist Sweden Democrats leader Jimmie Akesson has reinforced his stance on wanting to see Sweden leave the European Union, saying that no supranational body should have authority over the Swedish parliament.
Only weeks away from the Swedish national election in September, the Sweden Democrats leader slammed the European Union, saying: “for me, the EU is not the way for cooperation in Europe,” Sveriges Radio reports.

“The EU is a supranational political union where other countries’ politicians, for which we cannot vote… have greater influence over Swedish legislation than I have in Sweden’s parliament,” Akesson said, adding: “I find it very difficult to accept that situation.”

Hooters Is Shutting Down Locations, Restrategizing After Recent Study Says Millennials Aren't That Into Boobs

Another day, another opportunity to blame millennials for the demise of... well, anything. This time, you can shit on the group for causing the potential downfall of boob-friendly bar and restaurant chain Hooters. According to a recent study from the fine folks over at Pornhub, millennials are less interested in breasts than their elders. To get specific: "Pornhub visitors between the ages of 18 to 24 are 19% less likely to search for breasts when compared to all other age groups, but visitors aged 55 to 64 are 17% more likely to search."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is another aspect. When Hooter's originally opened, the standard server costume was just the hot pants and the thin t-shirt, but complaints from feminists drove Hooter's to eventually add skin-colored hose, thicken the t-shirts and ad bras in most locations. Given that the food at Hooter's was never great, their business suffered because their servers were now just as dressed as servers in other restaurants. And where is the fun in that?

Yale honors prof who enraged students by defending free speech

Yale University has bestowed its highest faculty honor on a professor who just a few years ago was nearly driven to leave the school by students upset that he defended his wife’s free speech.

The July 23 announcement recounts Christakis’s scholarly work and accomplishments and mentions that the honor is bestowed by Yale’s president and Board of Trustees. According to The New York Times, Yale spokesperson Thomas Conroy stated that “the decision was made purely on academic grounds.”

This honor comes nearly three years after students aggressively protested Christakis and his wife, Erika, regarding an email sent by Erika just before Halloween in 2015, when the pair served as the co-heads of Silliman College, an undergraduate residential college at Yale.

The American Empire and its Media

Largely unbeknownst to the general public, executives and top journalists of almost all major US news outlets have long been members of the influential Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Established in 1921 as a private, bipartisan organization to “awaken America to its worldwide responsibilities”, the CFR and its close to 5000 elite members have for decades shaped U.S. foreign policy and public discourse about it. As a well-known Council member famously explained, they transformed the American republic into a global empire, albeit a “bene­volent” one.

Are Russia's New Super Nukes 'All Bark And No Bite?' While America's Nuclear Deterrent Has Aged To The Point Of Near Obsolescence, Russia Has Changed The Entire 'Game'

Fox News on the Web should be deeply embarrassed by Perry Chiaramonte and Alex Diaz’s August 8 article “Russia’s Nuclear Arsenal: All Bark and No Bite?”

“Amid fears of a new Cold War, an examination of Russia’s nuclear arsenal by Fox News shows that there may be no need to worry about a devastating nuclear attack,” Mr. Chiaramonte and Mr. Diaz write chirpily.

Mr. Chiaramonte and Mr. Diaz clearly know nothing about Russia’s nuclear capabilities or the fundamentals of nuclear strategy. Their article is blissfully uninformed by the findings of the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community’s Nuclear Posture Review.

UN CHIEF SUGGESTS DEPLOYING UN-MANDATED ARMED FORCES TO PROTECT PALESTINIANS

The protection of Palestinian civilians could be improved by the deployment of UN-mandated armed forces or unarmed observers, a beefed-up UN civilian presence or expanded UN assistance, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wrote in a report on Friday.

The United Nations General Assembly requested the report in a resolution adopted in June that condemned Israel for excessive force against Palestinian civilians and denounced the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israeli civilian areas.

The resolution asked for proposals to ensure “the safety, protection and well-being of the Palestinian civilian population under Israeli occupation, including … recommendations regarding an international protection mechanism.”

Guterres outlined four options, but he did not make a specific recommendation. He noted that all options would need the cooperation of both parties, a sustained cessation of hostilities and additional resources to ensure they were viable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UN Secretary Gutteres, this will only happen... when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

Israel will not allow this to happen, period, end of discussion.

ACTOR JIM CARREY'S ART GOES VIRAL: "OUR MISSILE, OUR CRIME" IN YEMEN

Responding to the now confirmed fact that it was a laser-guided MK 82 bomb made by Lockheed Martin that killed 40 children while they were riding inside a school bus in northern Yemen over a week ago, actor Jim Carrey has highlighted the crime in his latest art.

In a now viral tweet posted to his official account Friday afternoon, Carrey wrote, "40 innocent children killed on a bus in Yemen." And added, "Our ally. Our missile. Our crime."

Carrey referenced the US-Saudi coalition in Yemen responsible for dropping the 500-pound bomb on the bus as it made its way through a crowded market in Dahyan in Saada province on August 9th, which both the US State Department and the Saudis had defended as a "legitimate military operation".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I really have to wonder why the B.O.Y. (the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Prince Salman) hasn't simply carpet bombed the country yet; I would imagine that this is probably his "next step" in the Saudi genocide against the country.

But Carrey is absolutely correct here; the US is a country complicit in Saudi war crimes in Yemen, and that means that every single US citizen has been made complicit in these war crimes.

I keep hoping that Americans are going to wake up to the absolute mess this government has continued to make in the Middle East, by this alliance with Saudi Arabia against Yemen; unfortunately, most of my brother and sister Americans are too mired in their everyday lives to be paying attention.

JUDICIAL WATCH CALLS FOR RE-OPENING OF HILLARY EMAIL INVESTIGATION AFTER MORE CLASSIFIED INFO FOUND

On Thursday, the watchdog revealed that it had received two batches, 184 pages and 45 pages, of newly uncovered emails belonging to Hillary Clinton from the U.S. Department of State sent and received over her unsecured server.

The emails were uncovered by a FOIA lawsuit filed on May 6, 2015, after the State Department failed to respond to a March 4, 2015 FOIA request seeking all emails sent or received by Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State, as well as all emails by other State Department employees to Clinton regarding her non-“state.gov” email address.

“These emails were undercovered from the emails that Hillary Clinton tried to delete or otherwise hide from the American people,” Fitton said in a video posted Thursday. “These new emails once again show why the Clinton email investigation needs to be re-opened by the Justice Department.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why this November's midterm elections are so critical; if the Democrats win the House and Senate, all these investigations will be shut down, never to see the light of day again.

DEMANDING WIDE-REACHING REFORMS AND AN END TO SLAVERY, INMATES IN 17 STATES PLAN PRISON STRIKE

The Nationwide Prison Strike is planned for August 21, the day Nat Turner led an uprising of slaves in 1831, until September 9, the 47th anniversary of the Attica prison rebellion in which more than 40 people were killed.

Organizers of the action, which is endorsed by Jailhouse Lawyers Speak and the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC), have released a list of ten demands for improvements to their living conditions, sentencing policies, and laws that allow for prison slavery.

"All persons imprisoned in any place of detention under United States jurisdiction must be paid the prevailing wage in their state or territory for their labor," reads the list of demands. The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows for "slavery or involuntary servitude...as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prison labor is, unfortunately, very bound into the fabric of the US economy; if that cannot be made to change, then the conditions under which it is performed, needs to.

The American system of incarceration is engineered to fail, miserably, and it succeeds brilliantly at that failure.

One of the most current set of numbers on this indicates the following, and this is from May 2017:

"According to a report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) about 68 percent of 405,000 prisoners released in 30 states in 2005 were arrested for a new crime within three years of their release from prison, and 77 percent were arrested within five years. May 31, 2017"

If these numbers look astonishingly horrific, it is because they are.

True rehabilitation, engineered to get the formerly incarcerated individual back into society, can work; but in US prisons, such programs are rarely instituted, and jail time, many times, leaves the incarcerated individual in worse shape than they were before they started serving their sentences.

This feeds the prison/industrial complex with people who are deliberately stuck into a loop from which they have no escape.

WATCH: DRUG WAR ADDICTED COPS ATTACK INNOCENT MAN FOR ROLLING A JOINT IN A STATE WITH LEGAL WEED

For almost three years, medical marijuana was legalized in various regions of the state of Nevada. However, recreational marijuana sales only started in specific areas of the state at the beginning of July 2017 because of a law that took effect at that time; this law renders persons that are at least 21 years old and bear valid identification legally capable of purchasing the drug in those regions for recreational purposes. However, as a recent video shared with the Free Thought Project shows, police, lots of them, are still willing to attack and assault people for having the plant.

According to the new Nevada law, pot generally can only be legally imbibed on property owned privately by residents, and it may not be imbibed in any public location on the Strip such as a bar or casino. So, when Josh Martin sat in his truck to roll a joint—on private property—he was well within his rights, according to Nevada law, to do so.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if the police officer attacking this man was on SSRI (Selective Serontonin Reuptake Inhibitor) medication.

"They've dollarized our prices. I am petrolizing salaries and petrolizing prices," Maduro explained in a Friday televised address. "We are going to convert the petro into the reference that pegs the entire economy's movements."

1953 Iran coup – a crime authored in London and Washington

This week marks 65 years since the Western-orchestrated coup in Iran. August 19, 1953 is the day that Iranians were taught a hard lesson in the rules of the game when it comes to empire and hegemony.
For on this day, the country’s democratically elected prime minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, was overthrown at the hands of Washington and London. It was, by any measure, an act of international banditry that continues to cry out for just redress.

On August 19, 1953, an American-led military coup toppled Iran's first democratically elected government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh, a move described in a declassified CIA document "as an act of US foreign policy".

For the past 65 years, this event has continued to haunt the ties between Tehran and Washington - and in recent months has taken on a new significance amid a renewed diplomatic standoff between the two following US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions.

The move angered Tehran and prompted a range of reactions - from President Hassan Rouhani saying Iran will not negotiate while sanctions are in place, to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declaring that all negotiations are off the table while Trump is president.
