April 26, 2017, Late day news UPDATE

UPDATE: Trump chills out: No military action threatened against North Korea . . . anyway, next week we’ll have the government shutdown to distract us from pedophilia . . .

After weeks of threats of unilateral military action, joint statement by US Secretary of State Tillerson and US Defense Mattis appears to call that option off.

Following weeks of threats and bombast, with wild talk of the US fleet closing in on North Korea, of the US taking ‘unilateral action’ to stop North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programmes, and after the entire US Senate was called for a briefing in the White House – which in the event produced precisely nothing and which lasted all of 14 minutes – the US today after the briefing announced a policy of more of the same: of trying to stop the North Korean nuclear weapons programme through “sanctions and diplomatic pressure”

…Either wiser counsels have prevailed, and President Trump has been talked out of whatever dangerous military action against North Korea he had planned, or the various threats and military moves of the last few weeks were never intended seriously, and were just a bluff. If so, then as discussed previously, the bluff was called on Sunday, when China’s President Xi Jinping telephoned President Trump and warned him that China would not change its policy because of US threats.

The extent of the failure of the attempts to bluff China into taking tougher action against North Korea is illustrated by one telling fact: the statement does not even mention China – much less make demands of it – even though China has been the centre-piece of the diplomacy for weeks.  . . .

Montague’s Message for Sunday, 23 April 2017

History is a pack of lies about events that never happened
told by people who weren’t there.
George Santayana

Monumental progress is being made. People are fast learning how to connect and use their own power to change what needs to be changed. Recognising what must be changed is best done in groups, so that you have the power of that group to make the changes that you hope to make. It is a question of connecting with your own energy and using it to remove the chains that bind you, and humanity as a whole.

The Cabal’s energy has been reduced to 3% of what it was. Veronica is working with others who are releasing the energy that was suppressed by the Crown, the Vatican, and others. All the control systems are now exposed and are being removed. When this energy is released, it flows as it should. Black Magic and Artificial Intelligence outside the earth are used to depress and control man. Much help is being given to restructure the Earth, raising the vibration, and of course, raising consciousness. Please be open to these changes. A whole network of people is being used, though they are not conscious of this.

The “mass production” of fake news is the result of a significant decrease in journalists’ professional standards that is taking place against a backdrop of “unjustified legislative and functional” limits being imposed on media outlets, the Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.

The Not-So-Grand Strategy Behind America’s Warring Around, by F. Willaim Engdahl

It’s getting pretty crazy, the warring around of Washington since the Trump Project took office January 20. The question is whether there is a true strategy behind the dramatic escalation of Trump Administration military aggression around the world. There definitely is in my view, and it’s not good for world peace, not good for the United States and the rest of the world.

The numerous tactics that narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths use to manipulate and silence you

. . . this article title reminds me a bit of Steve Pieczenik ‘s recent video in which he says it’s fine for our leaders/politicians to be narcissistic, grandiose, and filled with paranoia. He almost say it is required, a plus to have these qualities.. While that’s what we may have had for leaders in the past, has that been good for us? Look at the other leaders of the world, leaders who we’re beginning to realize have the interests of humanity at heart. Do they embody these traits? Don’t these ‘traits’ also need to be dumped in the swamp?

Russian FM Lavrov: US claims of Russia arming Taliban baseless, unprofessional

You Got Trumped! Trump not yellin’ about Yellen anymore! . . . and of course, we don’t hear anything about arresting Hillary anymore, either.

Having castigated Janet Yellen for keeping interest rates artificially low in order to help the Obama Administration keep a Democrat in the White House, Trump now likes Janet Yellen and likes low interest rates, too — so much so that he decided this week that it is finally time to get honest with America about his latest flip-flop:

“I do like a low-interest rate policy, I must be honest with you. I think our dollar is getting too strong, and partially that’s my fault because people have confidence in me. But that’s hurting—that will hurt ultimately,” he added. “Look, there’s some very good things about a strong dollar, but usually speaking the best thing about it is that it sounds good.” (The Wall Street Journal)

Russian senator warns UK risks being ‘wiped off the map with nuclear counterstrike’

The UK, which recently said it could launch a preemptive nuclear strike “in the most extreme circumstances,” runs the risk of being “wiped off the face of the Earth,” the deputy head of a Russian upper house committee said.

“The statement made by UK’s Defense Minister Michael Fallon calls for a harsh response and I’m not afraid of going too far. At best this statement may be seen as an element of a psychological war, which looks especially revolting in this context,” Frants Klintsevich wrote on Facebook.

“There is a quite natural question then: what country could be primitively targeted by the UK?” the deputy head of the Federation Council’s Committee for Defense and Security said.

In case the UK strikes a nuclear power, then “the UK, which doesn’t have vast territory, will be literally wiped off from the face of the earth with a counterstrike,” Klintsevich said.

In the event of targeting a non-nuclear country, this will remind of the US nuclear attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he added.

Klintsevich’s comment comes after Fallon on Monday said that the UK is prepared to carry out a preemptive nuclear strike against any enemies, even if Britain is not under attack.

Elites Are Orchestrating A Global Catastrophe: “There Are Many Things The President Does Not Know”

Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (Nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces) via SHTFplan.com

Following the money is always the key and crucial element to determining the “probable cause/modus operandi” regarding to globalist actions.  Although there are many who believe that President Trump is the panacea to all our problems, even they may perhaps admit that there are forces other than the President that drive our country, as well as the world.  The shadowy cabal of globalists, Bilderbergers, bankers, and other secretive organizations bent on a “union” of totalitarian control are almost too numerous to count.

There are many things the President does not know.  This is intentional on the part of the moneyed interests that control the very fabric of our society.  The interests are corporate, political, and religious: a three-level tier of control over all the facets of human society.  Just as one individual person cannot “dominate” one of these sectors, the sectors themselves cannot dominate.  They are forced into a symbiotic relationship rooted in commensalism, where each of these “parasites” benefits the other two.

The problem lies in the fact that these interests are elitists who believe in the forced imposition of their philosophies upon the masses.  They also believe in “culling the herd,” and maintaining a servile population at minimum levels to carry out all menial labor and industrial production (the Deltas and Epsilons of Huxley’s Brave New World) as they direct.  Patiently these elitists have been awaiting the day when their “1984” society is a reality, crafting and shaping it all along throughout the decades. 

The key question for them: how to kill off about 6 to 6 ½ billion people without destroying the world? . . . 

Mattis accuses Russia of arming the Taliban

. . . the fine article below, puts the lie to the article above, but be prepared, because the situation in Afghanistan is complicated. . . 

Afghanistan Mazar-e Sharif Attack: US-Backed Regime Suffers Another Setback, by Ulson Gunnar

…The attack [by the Taliban] along with other activities of the Taliban, then, bears the hallmarks of a deeply rooted resistance against both the US occupation and the US-backed regime and the military forces propped up to protect it both in Kabul and across the country. That the base targeted by the recent attack also reportedly garrisoned German troops is also significant. The prospect of ending such attacks or securing any sort of “victory” over the Taliban and the local tribes allied to it is as unlikely now as a US victory was in Vietnam during the 1970’s.

Washington D.C. To Hold Massive “Coordinated Terror Attack” Drill This Wednesday

April 26th is shaping up to be a busy day.

As we reported on Friday, that’s when Operation Gotham Shield, an exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies and which simulates a nuclear bomb blast over Manhattan, is set to conclude.

Then, as we learned earlier, April 26 is also when the entire Senate will be briefed by Donald Trump and his four top defense and military officials on the situation in North Korea at the White House, an event which Reuters dubbed as “unusual.”

April 26 is also when the USS Carl Vinson is expected to finally arrive off the coast of the Korean Penninsula.

Now, in a statement from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, the regional association reports that “law enforcement officials and other first responders will participate in a full-scale exercise on April 26 designed to prepare for the possibility of a complex coordinated terror attack in the National Capital Region.”

Judge declares mistrial in Bundy Ranch standoff case (video)

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has said that Washington “will confront Russia” after a top US military commander claimed Moscow is “sending weapons” to the Taliban. No specifics or evidence were provided to support the claims which Moscow has previously denied.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Mattis in the Afghan capital of Kabul on Monday, the head of the US and international forces in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson said the US “continue to get reports of this [Russia’s] assistance” to Taliban insurgents.

The NATO commander, who Mattis praised as “one of our most experienced officers in the field and one of our most serious strategic thinkers,” was asked “to address the influx of Russian weapons into Afghanistan and showing up in Taliban hands” by a journalist from the Washington Post.

How mad is this: Mad Dog planning to invade East Syria, by Mike Whitney

The Pentagon’s plan for seizing and occupying territory in east Syria is beginning to take shape. According to a Fox News exclusive:

“The Islamic State has essentially moved its so-called capital in Syria… ISIS is now centered in Deir ez-Zur, roughly 90 miles southeast of Raqqa, the officials said.”

The move by ISIS corresponds to the secretive massing of US troops and military equipment on the Syria-Jordan border. It creates the perfect pretext for a ground invasion followed by a long-term military occupation in an area that Washington has sought to control for the last 18 months. Here’s more on the topic from South Front . . .

’Status quo in N. Korea unacceptable’: Trump scolds UNSC to up payments, wants more sanctions (Videos)

U.S. President Donald Trump hosts a working lunch with ambassadors of countries on the UN Security Council at the White House, April 24, 2017

President Donald Trump chastised the UN Security Council for underperforming and called on it to “impose additional and stronger sanctions” on North Korea during a meeting with UNSC ambassadors at the White House.

“The status quo in North Korea is also unacceptable, and the council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions on the North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile programs,” Trump said during the luncheon.

Trump also took a jab at the UN for ignoring threats like North Korea “for far too long.”

“This is a real threat to the world, whether we want to talk about it or not. North Korea is a big world problem and it’s a problem that we have to finally solve,” he said. “People put blindfolds on for decades and now it’s time to solve the problem.”

A Washington-based nonprofit consumer advocacy group is warning about the extraordinary grant of power to corporate businesses and the enrichment of US President Donald Trump’s private businesses by the administration.

In a report published on Monday, the head of Public Citizen group sounded the alarm bells about Trump’s frequent meetings with corporate executives and also high-profile positions in his administration occupied by former business leaders.  

“We are nearly 100 days into the Trump administration, and it’s clear that there has been a wholesale corporate takeover of the government,” said Robert Weissman.

On Monday, Britain-based Oxfam urged donor nations to provide aid for the Yemeni people rather than arms for the aggressors.

“Many areas of Yemen are on the brink of famine, and the cause of such extreme starvation is political,” it said in a statement on the eve of a United Nations conference in Geneva to seek aid pledges for the Arab country.

The British charity further argued that Western governments are participating in the confab “while they continue to sell billions of dollars worth of weapons and military equipment to parties to the conflict.”

The food crisis could deteriorate in case the international community fails to send a clear message that Saudi-led airstrikes against Yemen’s western port city of Hudaydah, which serves as a primary entry point for humanitarian aid and fuel for the Arab country, would be “totally unacceptable”, Oxfam noted.

UN ‘deeply concerned’ over safety of 400,000 Raqqa civilians fleeing US-led coalition airstrikes . . . another swamp that desperately needs cleaning. Like the Vatican, they talk a good talk, but never walk the walk!!!

France elections: Le Pen steps aside as National Front leader

Far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has announced that she is stepping aside as leader of her National Front (FN) party.

The move comes just a day after she reached the second round of the French election, where she will face centrist Emmanuel Macron.

Ms Le Pen told French TV she needed to be above partisan considerations.

Opinion polls suggest Mr Macron is firm favourite for the second round but Ms Le Pen said: “We can win, we will win.”

The French term she used signalled that the move to step aside would be temporary.
She told France 2 that France was approaching a “decisive moment”.

Yet what’s supposed to be the shock of the new is not exactly a shock. The more things veer towards change (we can believe in), the more they stay the same. Enter the new normal: the recycled “system” – as in Emmanuel Macron — versus “the people” — as in the National Front’s Marine Le Pen, battling for the French presidency on May 7.

Although that was the expected outcome, it’s still significant. Le Pen, re-christened “Marine”, reached the second round of voting despite a mediocre campaign. . . .

Pentagon conducts more strikes in Yemen against 11 al-Qaeda members

Defense Secretary Mattis hides the real goals of the US in Yemen

Without evidence, US sanctions 271 Syrians and freezes their US assets. . . When I read this, I almost laughed. They are trying everything in the book to start something — anything — and it isn’t going to work. The world is just waiting for them, like a child’s toy, to run down.

Two weeks after launching missile strikes on Syria, the U.S. Treasury announced it has sanctioned 271 employees of Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center in response to the alleged sarin attack conducted by the Assad regime on Kahn Sheikhoun. It’s one of the largest sanction actions in U.S. history.

The action was announced in a statement by the Treasury Department, and Treasury Security Steve Mnuchin simultaneously briefed reporters at the White House.

The action – which takes place in lieu of a probe demanded by Russia and Syria to determine if Assad was indeed responsible for the recent sarin attack – freezes the individuals’ U.S. assets – which we doubt exist – and generally prohibits U.S. persons from dealing with them

The result of this election in France from my point of view is not good news for France, for Europe and for Russia. Mr. Macron, everybody forgets this thing, because the result, the campaign, the marketing, but the fact is [he] is the baby of Mr. [Francois] Hollande. So it will be exactly the same policy… When he was the minister of the economy he didn’t make any good reforms; it’s only a marketing baby of Mr. Hollande.

“The three ideological fundamentalisms are currently as follows: an Islamist, personified by Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL]; a pseudo-communist, manifested by the DPRK [North Korea]; and the liberal-globalizing represented by certain elites of the West.

“These threats are, of course, unequal in scope and ideological roots, but they have much in common: each resorts to blackmail and threats, as well as use of force, visual and media effects, relying on zombie activists ready for everything for the sake of an idea,” Kosachev, the head of Russia’s upper house Committee for International Relations, wrote in an opinion piece published in Izvestia daily on Monday.

These threats have come from where they were least expected – from within, Kosashev notes.

The peoples of Western countries have begun to show discontent with the ruling elite becoming increasingly out of touch with the population. However, instead of a preemptive transformation of the system, it reacted with a completely authoritarian scheme: first, by seeing in the goings-on some ‘intrigues of the enemies’ from the outside. Second, by extremely demonizing those who oppose the system, exposing them as ‘new dictators’. And third, by accusing the people of allegedly being fond of populism. Although what they call populism is in fact an attempt by politicians to respond to the voice of the people, not the elite.” . . .

This article, however, argues that the architects of these wars were, and are, well aware of the destabilising consequences of their military efforts, and in fact, had always regarded the breakup of Iraq and Syria along sectarian lines as a desirable outcome. The millions of deaths and injuries resulting from these horrific wars, as well as the displacement of several more millions, then, are nothing more than “collateral damage” to achieve US-Israeli hegemony in the region. Viewed from this perspective, post-9/11 Western Middle East policy in retrospect is not a failure, but a success.

Part I: Partition, the only solution? . . .

According to Bloomberg, Vladimir Putin is “quietly” annexing the Donbass region into Mother Russia. Meanwhile, NATO is holding a parliamentary assembly in the middle of icebound nowhere. Here in Germany the geniuses in charge of the government have created a “Ministry of Truth” in order to suppress deadly populism. Terror still grips us, North Korea is set to start Armageddon, and America’s Rex Tillerson has an Exxon plan for Syria. In short, Trump changed nothing. Here we are, still caught in Alice’s Wonderland.

Blooming Icebergs of Fake News and BS . . .

 * * * The political dimension of hydrocarbon trade between Russia and Central Asia

Central Asia is strategically important for Russia in terms of security. It plays the role of a sort of buffer between Russia and countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan etc., where the threat of terrorism is strong. Therefore, good relations with the countries of the region, their peace and prosperity are among Russia’s most important interests. Cooperation in the oil and gas industry is a powerful means to achieve this.

. . . soon, Americans may learn that ignorance is not bliss!

Our school system makes it clear why we are ignorant:

Before the NYPD can bring a case against Anthony Weiner and others, based on the contents of the latter’s computer, it appears that they need to clean up their own house. At least this convicted pedophile was no longer on the force.

15-year NYPD veteran, sergeant Alberto Randazzo supervised police officers by day but directed infant porn videos over his computer by night, telling moms he met online to molest their children. The victims were babies only a few months old.

Three of the women Randazzo solicited have also been charged in the Eastern District of New York. Two have pleaded guilty, one of whom was sentenced to five years imprisonment, one of whom is awaiting sentencing, and another is awaiting trial.

. . . and how about this man’s story?

Russia prepared to deploy ground forces to Syria: Sources

Civilian deaths in US strikes in Syria & Iraq are ‘greatest catastrophe since WWII’

Ukraine, Korea, Syria, Iran… Falsifying History Is Uncle Sam’s Way To War

Russia’s support for E Ukraine ‘obstacle’ in Washington-Moscow ties . . . well, it’s now more than obvious that no matter what Russia does, it isn’t going to win with the United States. Instead, it is finally regarded by most of the world as an ‘honest broker’ and can openly speak its mind. How refreshing!

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Russia’s “actions” in eastern Ukraine serve as an “obstacle” in ties between the administration of US President Donald Trump and the Kremlin.

‘Saudi discrimination against women systematic’

China’s Xi urges restraint during Trump call as ‘USS Carl Vinson’ heads for N. Korean waters . . . Yes, the rest of the world must continue to work to restrain the US in order to avoid war. How long must we watch this game being played? Better still, how many more must die until this comes to an end?

Key Highlights From Trump’s AP Interview

The majority of those who voted for Donald  Trump and Hillary Clinton in the US 2016 presidential election still voice support for the two, a poll shows.

The News/Washington Post poll was released early Sunday as President Trump was approaching his 100th day mark in office. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Steve makes some interesting points; nevertheless, psychiatrists no longer impress me. My experience is that unless people deal with their feelings, intellectual understandings alone can’t heal. It’s the fears and terrors, often acquired in childhood and misunderstood and suppressed, that we must bring into alignment with reality. This will open our hearts to clarity. Do you see clarity in Steve?
