May 29, 2017, Memorial Day Thoughts

Less Government. More Freedom. Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog

In every human heart there is a hunger to live free, and big government is the enemy of freedom… The dreams that our forefathers once had for this nation may have faded, but they aren’t dead just yet… A new generation of patriots is rising, and we are determined to take our country back.”

 * * * 

On this Memorial Day, here are some thoughts that have come to me after reading the article above: 

How can we take our country back when, according to the article above we have lost the ability to think critically for ourselves? Again, according to this article, many of us can’t read, and along with short attention spans, cultivated in us by our controllers, we can’t focus long enough to study and learn; we do not know our ‘real’ history, and so when deluged with so-called facts, we have no ability to discern reality; we unrealistically expect change will come overnight and be done for us and to us. It seems to me as I sit here on Memorial Day, thinking about these facts, that our value systems are really skewed.

Too many of us believe that all answers regarding our happiness are to found in the outside world, and most of us don’t even know there is a far more important inner world. We think the great journey of our times is about going into space, when the greatest journey of our times is actually the inner journey and work to move our conscious focus from our heads to our hearts, so that our minds act in service to our hearts. In short, at this moment, when we look towards our future, I see that as a species we are in living in dangerous circumstances.

How can we take our country back when most of us have no idea what specifically is truly wrong with it — and even worse, we refuse to even consider other truths that go against our cabal-oriented education? For those of us who do understand, how are we to act to help remove this monolithic inertia that holds most of our citizens enthralled?

Sadly, the ‘real’ truth is that ‘less government’ doesn’t automatically create ‘more freedom’. Freedom requires that we take sovereign responsibility for our Selves, and how many of us are ready to seriously take on that kind of responsibility? Do we even know what this means? Has anyone ever taken the time to tell us?

In our closest personal relationships, can we honestly say we are ‘free’ and sovereign? I suggest most of us are caught up in webs of unconscious co-dependency, so we are not truly free, not even personally. How can we, then, ever develop the ability to govern ourselves as sovereign citizens of a sovereign country, when in our personal lives we still have not begun to achieved personal freedom and sovereignty. If we are told, as Jesus said, that we are to love others as we love ourselves, what does that mean? What does it mean to love ourselves — first? I have never had a minister or someone schooled in religion able to answer that question — and I have nicely, but pointedly asked them all. Why have they no answer to that most basic statement in our religious teachings? And I believe there is an answer!

Not too many years ago, we had almost no idea of what constituted healthy relationships, and through no fault of our own, too many of us unconsciously imbibed our relationship skills in childhood from homes that were often dysfunctional. As a result, that means for many of us that our lives just haven’t worked — and let me also remind you, as someone who is the proof of the pudding, that this needn’t continue to be the case no matter how old we might be. It seems to me at the very least it makes sense for us to take on the responsibility of understanding what constitutes a healthy relationship, because now we do know the answer to that question! My belief is that if we are willing to leave our egos and pride behind and develop a conscious understanding of what embodies healthy relationships and begin the work to apply the skills that we should have learned as children, this should play an important role in creating a healthier nation.

How many of us have chosen to go-along-to-get-along, to compromise our lives, how many of us have ‘settled’ for less — given up on our dreams, because we fear (often unconsciously and with good reason) rejection and being alone? How many of us are in denial of this sort of thinking and refuse to even consider it? At the same time that we learn the basic skills to get along in our most personal relationships, however, we also must learn to be able to get along with and love our own Self, warts and all. After all, we all have warts, so why are we so willing to hide them, an effort which demands we live with secrets and without transparency, an effort that requires endless energy that could be used elsewhere and keeps us living in a box — and makes us grow old far too soon.

Are we willing to look at our real history to understand how and why  this secretive way of looking at our lives and our mistakes  happened to our entire species — because I do think this is something we need to do.

I believe we must learn, instead, that mistakes if used wisely are learning experiences that can teach us to be happy with who we are. How can we begin to change this too-long held negative view of our lives to this positive outlook? What also do we need to learn in order to deal comfortably with the stings that come from others who are unwilling to entertain our views and who continue to try to control us by making us feel bad about ourselves, so they can continue to feel comfortable in their own boxed-in comfort zones?

Please consider this idea: If we are respectful of other people in our expressions of our views to them, is it our job in life to be responsible for making them comfortable and happy? Especially, when the truth is that everyone has the choice and responsibility as to how they receive and view our words, and they truly have the responsibility for their own happiness.

I can continue to report the presently very sick news, but what is the real value in that alone? If we ever bring the deep State down — and I think we will, where are we going from there? While some believe there is going to be a massive EVENT that will save us, realist that I am, I simply can’t buy into this idea. Having now recovered from abuse, my experience tells me that the only answer to our future freedom is within each of us — and it breaks all the rules of emotional growth and spirituality to believe like children that we are going to suddenly be thrust into the pleasures of a far better world without any understanding of the responsibilities required to maintain it. I believe that while the cabal may teach this false idea, Source has far greater wisdom than that; it knows our efforts to create this world for ourselves will only bring appreciation and respect — and our proud willingness to care for what we create. What would we do now with such a beautiful world, anyway, to prevent a replay of our present situation? Do any of us really know, besides having a nebulous longing? At this point in time, I can only see more of the same in our future; that is, we are still willing to create some form of the new-boss-same-ol-boss government.

Our system is totally corrupt, and as it totally fails and falls — as it must in this time of cleansing and paradigm change, how many of us are making preparations on a personal level to create a new, positive world? Change starts personally with each one of us. Words are meaningless; it’s our actions that will count. Today, I stop and ask myself what sort of actions humanity is taking in preparation for our future, and perhaps more importantly what sort of actions we as individuals are willing to take to insure our future — for our children, our future generations.

I received this beautiful video this morning. Long ago, however, I was told this song is the epitome of an expression of a dysfunctional relationship. Think about it? Can you see it?

When the inner journey to our hearts opens a truthful conversation with Source, which always speaks honestly (the heart is not an instrument of duality like the brain; it has no polarity). we have achieved the ultimate in a healthy relationship. We come to depend on our relationship with God, not other fallible human beings, who become the culprit and get the blame when things don’t go well in our lives — a most destructive way to live as our perosnal relationships fail over and over again. As we develop this healthy relationship with Source — we can then have healthy, free and loving  relationships with other human beings.

Of course, we also lean on and get help from others! But we do so in a way that doesn’t destroy lives and enables everyone’s freedom. No one ‘settle’s. No one gives up their life in a sacrificial way! Understanding how this ‘works’ in the ‘real’ world is the key to understanding how to successfully love ourselves — first! For those who choose this path, it’s going to be a beautiful journey!

On this most serious of Memorial Days, as many of us contemplate what sort of America we want to create, my deepest love to everyone!

May 21, 2017, Mid-Day News, UPDATE/s

The generals on Syria and Iraq: Talking tactics, lacking strategy, by Moon of Alabama . . . whose work in case you haven’t guessed, I really respect. If you are short on time and don’t know enough to follow the details of this post, I suggest you skip to the last three paragraphs of this WOW! article.

On Friday Secretary of Defense [General ret.] Mattis, General Dunford and Special Envoy McGurk on the Campaign to Defeat ISIS held a press briefing. A transcript is available.

My first thought after reading its was: “These people live in a different world. They have no idea how the real word works on the ground. What real people think, say, and are likely to do.” There was no strategic thought visible. Presented were only some misguided tactical ideas. …

Dozens Of Notre Dame Graduates Walk Out During Mike Pence Commencement Speech 

Dozens of graduating students walked out during Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame on Sunday, according to video reports posted on social networks.

Dunning-Kruger: Comey effectively admits Trump did not obstruct justice . . . my first experience with the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

CNN has published a rather odd report in which it says that former FBI Director Comey “now believes” that Donald Trump tried to influence the Russiagate inquiry, but that he clearly does not think this amounted to an obstruction of justice

Former FBI Director James Comey now believes that President Donald Trump was trying to influence his judgment about the Russia probe, a person familiar with his thinking says, but whether that influence amounts to obstruction of justice remains an open question.

“You have to have intent in order to obstruct justice in the criminal sense,” the source said, adding that “intent is hard to prove.”

Sott Comment: This whole thing just sounds like Comey is desperately trying to remain relevant.

Has the Trump administration green lighted ‘regime change’ in Venezuela?

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said that the Trump administration “wants to prevent another conflict like Syria, North Korea or South Sudan” in Venezuela which is a code phrase for “regime change.” According to a May 17th report by the Associated Press (AP):

Haley said the U.S. intention wasn’t to be “intrusive” or “heavy-handed” but to support regional efforts to find a political solution and “show respect for the Venezuelan people” who want free and fair elections, the release of political prisoners and the worsening humanitarian situation addressed.

“We think if that doesn’t happen we will certainly be hearing this in the Security Council because it will be a real problem — not just in the region but internationally,” Haley told reporters after the closed-door briefing and discussions that lasted over 1½ hours.

Sott Comment: With the US it is either “textbook” or “theme and variation.” No matter, the uprooting of Venezuela is well underway and has been for years. Even if Trump wants to stop it, the forces are in motion.

They killed the Tsar – now the globalists set their crosshairs on Putin, by Phil Butler . . . This powerful article helps us to increase our understanding of our world today with basic historical facts! A MUST READ. If the information is new to you, read it again and again until you understand that the direction of our world has been pre-planned for a very long time — and we are the ones we have been waiting for.  It is up to us to stop this insanity.

In today’s crises centered around Russia, world historians seem to have forgotten that it was American President Woodrow Wilson who made it possible for Leon Trotsky to enter Russia with an American passport. Observed in an historical context the underlying intent of western-eastern détente today should be seen in crystal clarity, but it is not. The reality is what it was. Russia is once again in the crosshairs of a fearsome globalist assault, and the only real course toward peace and cooperation is to view the current situation through the truth of an historic lens. The harsh reality of today’s crises can be traced to amoral and apolitical “internationalist” bankers, the reincarnated cabal of subversionists replying the same deadly tactic they did upon Tsarist Russia.

Most westerners never learned much about the 1917 Revolution in school. At best, a child of the 1960’s may have gone to the theater to see Doctor Zhivago, or the Cold War apocalyptic masterpiece Fail Safe. And in total fairness, and American kids raised in the 1970’s can scarcely be blamed for missing a paragraph or two in a high school history book about Tsar Nicholas and his family being murdered by the Bolsheviks. By the 1980’s, western youth could only be expected to identify with news of the fall of the Soviet Union, and maybe some of their contemporaries breaking up pieces of the Berlin Wall is normal. So today, if we expect middle America to fathom what we mean when we accuse the globalists of leveraging anti-Russian propaganda, then we are dreaming.The knowledge bridge for proper understanding and cooperation that should exist, it does not exist at all today. The same situation holds true for Britain and the rest of Europe. History, as it exists today, is a ripe fruit ready to be mixed into a brand-new globalist jam for consumption by the masses. Make no mistake, the global cabal (or subversionists) are hard at work this new neo-politic food product – and most of the world is already hooked on its saccharin sweetness. …

. . . and I believe this is what will bring them down . . . the Satanic abuse of OUR CHILDREN . . . all over the planet!

 * * *

Nothing will happen, however, when we continually get stories like those put out today by Reader Supported News (below), and other similar organizations. Too many people are badly mis-informed and the story is extremely complex, so they are fair game for these lies. It seems what they are ‘selling’ — and getting away with — in these stories actually belongs in a supermarket tabloid. Sadly, we as a country have been manipulated and have learned to call this garbage ‘news’. What to do!

Russian Officials Bragged They Could Use Flynn to Influence Trump

Gloria Borger, Pamela Brown, Jim Sciutto, Marshall Cohen and Eric Lichtblau, CNN

.  . . and here’s another story, coming suddenly out-of-the-blue, but perfectly timesd, creating chaos, terror, and fear . . . they are really ramping things up . . . can we believe anything the WHO says? Please, don’t jump on this fearful bandwagon! Take a deep breath, and do not respond with your emotions. We’ve been down this road before.

Ebola Spreading: Infections Up 800% In Last Week, Officials Race To Track Down 400 Possible Contacts

Last week three suspected Ebola infections were detected in a remote region of the Congo. Since then, World Health Organization officials have been scrambling to contain the virus.

The contagion continues to spread, and though it’s nowhere near the 11,000 people who were infected during the outbreak in 2014, the infection rate has spiked over 800% in just the last seven days, with at least nine new cases reported in the last 24 hours…

Fixing Trump’s media strategy . . .wish the Trump team would read this article!

Schlichter Warns “This Is A Coup Against Our Right To Govern Ourselves”

“The blizzard of lies and distraction blowing through Washington is not just any routine stuffstorm, but a calculated attempt to bring down a president – our president, not the establishment’s president. And more than that, it’s an attempt to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy…”

The blizzard of lies and distraction blowing through Washington is not just any routine stuffstorm, but a calculated attempt to bring down a president – our president, not the establishment’s president. And more than that, it’s an attempt to ensure that we never again have the ability to disrupt the bipartisan D.C. cabal’s permanent supremacy by inserting a chief executive who refuses to kiss their collective Reid.

This is a coup against us. It’s a coordinated campaign by liberals and their allies in the bureaucracy and media to once and for all ensure their perpetual rule over us. We need to fight it, here and now, so we don’t have to fight it down at the bottom of this slippery slope.

It’s brazen. It’s bold. It’s insulting to our intelligence. They aren’t even trying to hide their lies anymore. Truth is irrelevant; this is a choreographed dance routine and everyone has his moves. Call it Breakin’ 2: Electric Leakaroo, except instead of trying to save the community center they’re trying to save their power and prestige.

To buy the media narrative on this latest Russian nonsense, you must believe  . . .

Pentagon overbills US military for fuel and pours surplus into ‘slush fund’

Getting Assange: The Untold Story . . . I thought I understood, but I never realized how far they would go.

Had Assange not sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, he would have been on his way to the kind of American torture pit Chelsea Manning had to endure.

This prospect was obscured by the grim farce played out in Sweden.

“It’s a laughing stock,” said James Catlin, one of Assange’s Australian lawyers. “It is as if they make it up as they go along”.

It may have seemed that way, but there was always serious purpose. In 2008, a secret Pentagon document prepared by the “Cyber Counterintelligence Assessments Branch” foretold a detailed plan to discredit WikiLeaks and smear Assange personally.

The “mission” was to destroy the “trust” that was WikiLeaks’ “centre of gravity”. This would be achieved with threats of “exposure [and] criminal prosecution”. Silencing and criminalizing such an unpredictable source of truth-telling was the aim. . . . [and there’s much more!]

Trump uses anti-terrorism speech in Saudi Arabia to condemn countries actually fighting terrorism MUST READ!!! . . . his words tell me that this is not a man looking to bring peace to our world! His actions with the sale of armaments to Saudi Arabia are proving it!

The shame of today’s speech is not Donald Trump’s alone but should be shared by secular Arab states like Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt and Algeria who once stood proudly against imperialism and Gulfi barbarity. Libya which is now, hardly a state at all, also could once hold its head proudly in a broad Nasserist tradition.

Donald Trump spoke of America not wanting to lecture the Muslim world nor impose its views upon it. This particular remark should be applauded. But Trump stopped short of following his own advice. He proceeded to lecture the Muslim leaders about the dangers of Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, three organisations which unlike America and Saudi Arabia, are on the correct side of the war against Wahhabi terrorism.

If only the American people realised that Iran, while a theocracy is a place of learning, peace and cultural sophistication and if they also knew that Ba’athist Syria is a modern, free, secular, tolerant and wholesome place, they would have a very different idea about what is what in the Arab world.

Tillerson: ‘In all likelihood’ will eventually speak with his Iranian counterpart . . . is this is an attitude that will create peace?

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says it is likely he will eventually speak to his Iranian counterpart, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, “at the right time,” although he has no plans to talk to him at this point.

Tillerson’s comments came on May 20 in Riyadh during President Donald Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, the first leg in the president’s first foreign trip.

Syrian army calls US bluff: Continues advance towards Iraq border

The US is desperate to create a pretext for direct military intervention in Syria—but Syrian forces and their allies won’t take the bait.

US military presence in Syria is plainly illegal under international law, and arguably even unconstitutional.

While there are loopholes which allow for limited US military operations without a formal declaration of war, the president cannot initiate a war without congressional approval. But the attack on pro-government forces in southeast Syria on Thursday was just that—an act of war.

This attack was not intended to deter the Syrian Arab Army from advancing; the US knows that its proxy forces and mercenaries are unable to halt the Syrian Army and its allies as they push towards the border. In order to prevent Syria from reclaiming its own territory and securing its border, the US would need to launch a direct military intervention.

Of course, Washington would need a pretext for doing so.

Do you see where this is going?

Duterte slams America on eve of Putin meeting

The former American colony is embracing multi-polarity.

This week Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte is set to meet with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. The meeting should be understood as part of Duterte’s efforts to take his country out of America’s geo-political and economic orbit and engage in countries that constitute the other end of the multi-polar world.

Duterte has all ready engaged in an historic rapprochement with China, something which looks set to calm tensions over territorial disputes in the South China Sea.

Last year, Duterte welcomed a Russian Navy group to Philippines to engage in a friendly military demonstration. At the event Duterte spoke of his desire to foster closer and better relations with the Russian Federation.

Now, on the eve of talks with President Putin, Duterte told Russian reporters that he seeks to break from a traditional over-dependence on America.

Duterte stated,

“It’s the way how they handle it. You (the United States) treat me as if I am your colony still? You must be kidding. Why would I allow it, why would I allow you to treat me as if I am your colonial governor? We are independent country. We will survive, we will endure. We can go hungry, but this time, I want my country treated with dignity”. …

North Korea Launches Another Ballistic Missile

North Korea launched a ballistic missile Sunday afternoon which flew more than 500 kilometers, only one week after conducting its latest, successful ballistic missile test last Sunday, South Korea’s military announced. The missile was launched at 0759 GMT from a location near Pukchang, 60 km northeast of the capital Pyongyang.

Russia requests WTO consultations over sweeping Ukrainian sanctions . . . by adhering to the law, every move Russia makes reveals the corruption of the West, a fact we sorely need to recognize. They are allowing us to ‘see’ — if we choose.

“Russia has sent to the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Body and Ukrainian government a request for consultations on restrictions being repeatedly imposed since 2014,” the minister told reporters.

Kiev calls the restrictions on Russian goods, services, transit and other industries a response to Russia’s alleged role in the ongoing crisis in Eastern Ukraine.

“There are serious grounds to believe,” according to Oreshkin, that measures, undertaken by the Ukranian government, violate its obligations toward the WTO.

“Moreover, the number of anti-Russian measures, their nature and the scope of sectors affected, show that Ukraine systematically and consciously violates its international obligations, ignoring the rules of international trade and other international law standards,” the minister added. “Some of these measures are not protecting Ukrainian economy but instead creating additional problems.”

Brazil’s President Tells Supreme Court To Suspend Corruption Probe Of Brazil’s President

Maduro to Trump: ‘Get your dirty hands out of Venezuela’ [full article]

The United States should “get out of Venezuela,” the country’s leader, Nicolas Maduro, said after Washington slapped Venezuelan top judiciary officials with sanctions to “support” the Venezuelan people.

The new sanctions package, targeting the chief judge and seven other members of Venezuela’s Supreme Court, was imposed by the US Treasury to “advance democratic governance” in the country.

“Enough meddling … Go home, Donald Trump. Get out of Venezuela,” Maduro said in a speech broadcasted live on TV, as cited by Reuters. “Get your dirty hands out of here.”

The Venezuelan president’s tirade echoed a statement issued by the government, accusing the US of intervening into country’s internal affairs and seeking to further destabilize it.

“President Trump’s aggressions against the Venezuelan people, its government and its institutions have surpassed all limits,” the statement said.

It urged the US to focus on sorting out its own internal problems, instead of meddling in Venezuela’s affairs.

“The extreme positions of a government just starting off only confirmed the discriminatory, racist, xenophobic, and genocidal nature of US elites against humanity and its own people, which has now been heightened by this new administration which asserts white Anglo-Saxon supremacy,” the statement read, as cited by Reuters.

The sanctions imposed by the US Treasury include freeze of any assets the eight judges might have in the US, deny them entering the country, and prohibit US citizens to do any business with them. The situation in Venezuela “is a disgrace to humanity” and the country “has been unbelievably poorly run,” Donald Trump said Thursday.

“We haven’t really seen a problem like that, I would say, in decades,” Trump added.

The situation in Venezuela got heated at the end of March, after the Supreme Court ruled to take over the duties of the National Assembly. The unrest in the country continues despite the court repealed the decree shortly afterward.

Venezuelan officials, however, tend to blame foreign powers for fueling the unrest, stating that the scale of the protests within the country is largely exaggerated in the media.

“The situation in Venezuela is that what has happened in the past two weeks does not affect a mere one percent of the country’s territory, but it is being presented at the international level as though the country is at war,” Venezuela’s FM Delcy Rodriguez told RT Spanish earlier in May.

The main goal of the ongoing protests was “creating a mess in our society” and violently oust President Maduro instead of seeking new elections, the head of the commission for the National Constituent Assembly Elías José Jaua Milano told RT earlier in May, as the protest leaders are “not interested in taking part in the elections when the situation is politically, economically and socially stable.”

“India is looking for totalitarian solutions to deal with problems created by totalitarianism and tribalism…There is a lot of pain and no gain facing India. If they had any sense they should be begging the British to return and rule the country. That is the only option apart from chaos, disintegration, and eventual never-ending tribal infighting among the fragments.”

House bill requires US to monitor European criticism of Israel

US and Israel: ‘An integrated political system’

Since the end of the Cold War, more than 25 years ago, the United States has undermined the prospects for peace between the Israelis and Palestinians argues Rashid Khalidi in his book Brokers of Deceit: How the U.S. has Undermined Peace in the Middle East (2013). Dahlia Scheindlin interviewed him in New York this week for the Tel Aviv Review. Successive American administrations, says Khalidi, have been unable and unwilling to force Israel to make the concessions necessary to implement the peace proposal on the table: a two state solution.

Menachem Begin laid down the template for Israeli resistance during the Camp David negotiations with Egypt, says Khalidi. He figured out that the formula for not being forced to make concessions is to defer action forever. The ’79 peace treaty with Egypt permitted Israel to continue settlement in the West Bank and Gaza. Israeli Sovereignty over the West Bank was not touched.

How much does the Israel lobby, both Jewish and fundamentalist Christian, explain why negotiations have failed to bear fruit for the past 25 years, asked Scheindlin. “It’s beyond the Lobby,” said Khalidi. Israeli and American politicians get funding from the same people. Important industries, like high tech and defense, are integrated in the U.S. and in Israel at the highest levels. As a result the U.S. and Israeli political systems are on the same page, to the point that it is more accurate to think of them as one integrated political system than in terms of allies, says Khalidi.

And when he says the U.S. and Israel should be thought of as an integrated political system, he means Zionist Israel. Zionist Israel is the idea of Israel as the state of the Jews for the Jews of the world. It is the idea that the state belongs to a Jew born in Argentina, or Bolivia, or the United States who has never set foot in Israel; and it belongs to this Jew who has never set foot in Israel somehow more than it does to an Arab Palestinian who was born in Jerusalem but forced out by war in 1948 or 1967; that, in a fundamental way, it belongs to this Argentinian, Bolivian, or U.S. Jew more than it does to a Palestinian citizen of Israel.  . . .

Memo to Trump: US won’t escape Mideast wars until Israel ends oppression of Palestinians

As Donald Trump heads out to the Middle East, the Israel supporters are in panic mode. They are confused by statements from the U.S. consulate saying that the western wall is not in Israel. They are afraid that Trump will put pressure on Israel over its neverending settlement project. They are concerned that Trump seemed to get along with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and that he has grand ambitions to make a deal between the two sides so he will have a legacy.

Sheldon Adelson is anguished/angry, CNN reports. While Israel advocate Martin Indyk says the mood is sour.

Israeli mood soured by Masada speech cancellation, 15 minutes at Yad Vashem, refusal to call Western Wall Israel’s or move embassy to J’m.

The panic reflects the central fact of Israel’s existence: it depends on the United States to protect it in international forums from the consequences of its own actions, and therefore it relies on the Israel lobby (Adelson, Indyk et al) to enforce American government support.

But Trump is a loose cannon.   . . . 

Why Is The Trump Administration Rewarding Saudi War Crimes With More Weapons? Authored by Kristine Beckerle op-ed via The Hill . . . are some in D.C. finally beginning to ask questions, or is this because they’re trying to get rid of Trump? 

Trump should be urging the Saudis to shift course by abiding by the laws of war and holding those responsible for past abuses to account. Instead he will effectively be telling them to continue as before and not to worry – the flow of US weapons will not stop. Trump will also be putting Americans at risk.

The Fallacy Of Demonizing Russia

Today’s demonization of Russia is especially offensive when viewed against the suffering of the Russian people that Natylie Baldwin recalled in a visit to the monument honoring the defense of Leningrad against a brutal Nazi siege.

We have not experienced a war on our soil since the 1860’s and have not suffered an invasion since 1812. I can’t help but think that this, along with our youth, goes a long way toward explaining our lack of perspective and humility as a nation. Only those without wisdom would characterize themselves as ‘exceptional’ and ‘indispensable’.

The Gaping Holes of Russia-gate, by Ray McGovern and William Binney

Between Russia-gate and President Trump’s potential impeachment, Washington is blending the thrill of McCarthyism and the excitement of Watergate, as ex-U.S. intelligence officials Ray McGovern and William Binney explain.

[…] But the overriding question from “this Russia thing, with Trump and Russia” — as President Trump calls it — is whether there is any there there. The President labeled it a “made-up story” and, by all appearances from what is known at this time, he is mostly correct.

A few days before Comey’s firing, the FBI Director reportedly had asked for still more resources to hunt the Russian bear for supposedly “interfering” with last year’s election to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump. And so the firing allowed the Watergate-recalling news outlets to trot out the old trope that “the cover-up is worse than the crime.”

But can that argument bear close scrutiny, or is it the “phony narrative” that Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn of Texas claims it to be? Cornyn quipped that, if impeding the investigation was Trump’s aim, “This strikes me as a lousy way to do it. All it does is heighten the attention given to the issue.”

Truth is, President Trump had ample reason to be fed up with Comey, in part for his lack of enthusiasm toward investigating actual, provable crimes related to “Russia-gate” — like the flood of sensitive national security leaks, such as the highly sensitive intercepted communications used to precipitate the demise of Trump aide Michael Flynn.

CIA Incompetence Allowed China To Murder A Dozen CIA Assets While Hillary Clinton Was Secretary Of State

You know what they say about biting the hand that feeds. The NYT’s latest deep-state scoop revealed that “the Chinese government systematically dismantled CIA spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two year and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.”

How Long Can The Great Global Reflation Continue? (And What Happens When It Ends?) by Charles Hugh Smith

Every now and again, it’s good to take stock of the Great Global Reflation that has been marching higher (with a few stumbles and scares) since early 2009, over eight years ago.  Is this Great Reflation running out of steam, or is it poised for yet another leg higher? Which is more likely?

Assange case always had disturbing political background – Ecuadorian FM to RT (Video)

Ecuador has always been convinced that Assange was holed up in their London embassy, not because of the Swedish investigation, but due to political persecution over the publications of WikiLeaks.

“We always had suspicions of possible political persecution against Assange and now we see that we were right,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ecuador Guillaume Long said in an interview to RT Spanish on Saturday. “Ecuador was right, there was a much more disturbing political background.”

You will learn a lot here, but I personally think the conclusions expressed on this video are wishful thinking. How can America become great again if it is being run by another, different corrupt group? This statement shows no awareness of the paradigm shift in which we are involved. Corruption cannot be a part of our future.

Do you all agree with what is said on the video below? I frankly don’t agree with his words at all. His view of reality is practical, but IMO it isn’t going to get us anywhere near ascension. He explains away the fact that the Vatican is part and parcel of creating the refugees — c’est que vie accounts, remember those? Apparently, this man has no idea they exist. . . so confusing! Assad created ISIS? Whoops! This is not good!  Can’t trust anything anymore 🙂

US Senator censures $110Bn arms sale to Saudis, citing atrocities in Yemen

Paul Craig Roberts Laments “The Assault On Trump”

We are witnessing an assault by the national security state and its liberal media on a President of the United States that is unprecedented. This is the determination of the national security state to keep their prized “Russian Threat” in its assigned role as the Number One Threat to the US.

Republic, Democracy & the Importance of Self-Governance . . . thought provoking, important reading . . .

What exactly is a Republic? Have you ever even asked this question, or anything close to it? Did you know that a Republic indicates that a Republican form of government is how the government is organized, and from that it is recognized and commonly accepted that the people are Self-Governing in a Republic and thus are, “Free from Things Public,” (Libera Res Publica, or Republic as stated in the Latin). In such a Republic the people are IN their private capacity going about their private business.

A Republican form of government supports and protects the unalienable common rights of the people,who by the way, are the people that make up that very same government. For in a True Republic it is the People who ARE the government, not the people serving in government offices. This is what is truly meant when it is said, a Government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

So then, government is OF the people, and not OF the “Duly Elected” Public Servants that serve in the Public Offices as Servants of the People. These very same Public Servants have been ENTRUSTED with the authority and ordination of the People by Oath to carry out the Will of the People. In no other way is this possible much less, and more importantly Lawful! Therefore, Public Servants are Agents and Servants FOR the Government and are not the Government! So then, not out of disrespect for the sacrifices that one makes to serve in a Public capacity, all Public Servants should never be referred to as “The Government” or being OF Government, or, Government anything. Wherefore, this directly implies that they still in their Private Capacity whilst serving in a Public Office and are using their Private capacity in a Public Office, which is an absolute no-no. If such a thing were done, then this clearly is an indictable offense for conflict of interest at the very least as,  “No man can serve two masters,” applies flawlessly to expose any criminal activities being kept hidden from the All Seeing Eye of the Public. Can you see from this how Public and Private things are not to be commingled? When one is in and of the PUBLIC then they are to be in and of the PUBLIC only. Their private capacity is to be completely and totally separated from their PUBLIC capacity. Again, they are the Servants and Agents FOR the People in a PUBLIC capacity ONLY, and the Private People ARE always the Government, never the agents and servants. . . . 

Chinese Media Warns US Social Division Shows “Western Democracy Is Crumbling”

“The US model represents Western democracy, but it is crumbling, and the resulting social division has become more and more serious…”

Despite Sweden dropping rape case against Assange, his treatment remains an outrage . . . unbelievably Orwellian!

‘WikiLeaks staff are in danger’: Pilger, Kiriakou discuss Assange’s ongoing legal battle

“I welcome the Swedish prosecutor’s decision to end its investigation of Julian Assange,” John Kiriakou, a former CIA Counterterrorism Officer and whistleblower told RT. “We should not celebrate yet, however.”

“The governments of the United Kingdom and the United States have plotted against Mr. Assange for the past seven years, trying to silence him for his exposure of their crimes.”

Kiriakou, who was the first to acknowledge the CIA’s use of torture, spoke up because he believed the use of torture was “immoral, unethical and illegal.” He served 30 months for violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act by confirming the name of an officer involved in the CIA’s secret rendition program, and was released in 2015.

[…]

“What Chelsea [Manning] endured awaits another Courage Foundation beneficiary, Julian Assange, should he step outside the Ecuadorean embassy in London,” investigative journalist John Pilger told RT earlier this week.

“Julian Assange and the WikiLeaks staff are in danger,” Pilger continued. “WikiLeaks has been so successful in informing people all over the world of the surveillance and war state constructed by rapacious power that it is now fulfills the role of free journalism that the corporate media falsely claims for itself.”

“The DOJ [Department of Justice] has been running an unprecedented and wide-ranging investigation into WikiLeaks for its publishing and sourcing work since 2010,” the Courage Foundation explained. “It has involved paid informers, illegal interrogations in Europe and secret search warrants. Recently CIA Director Mike Pompeo called WikiLeaks a ‘hostile intelligence service.’”

Trump visits Saudi Arabia in first official foreign trip amid Yemen & human rights controversies

The US has concluded an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth $350 billion over 10 years, with $110 billion set to take effect immediately, the White House said Saturday, hailing the deal as “a significant expansion of… [the] security relationship” between the two countries.

‘Sucking up to Saudis is long US tradition, every president does it’ RT, Op-Edge

While the US constantly lectures other countries on human rights, Trump will not raise the subject on his visit to Saudi Arabia, which has one of the worst human rights records, analysts told RT. Arms sales are key to all of this, they added.

Trump’s Saudia Visit is the Start of an Old Game in a New Fashion, by Salman Rafi Sheikh MUST READ

Donald Trump’s up-coming visit to Saudi Arabia is likely to see him granting a de-facto recognition to the Islamic Military Alliance (IMA), or the so-called “Arab Nato.” This, however, is far from a customary recognition, aimed at mending the damage done to the US-Saudia bi-lateral relations during the Obama years. It is, given the Middle East’s regional circumstances whereby the erstwhile dominant “Sunni” powers are facing a resurgent “Shia” Iran, a part of the new strategy the Trump administration is putting in. According to the so-far revealed aspects of the strategy the Trump administration is seeking to deepen its allies’ engagement in the region to counter terrorism and corollary reduce its own direct and long-term military commitments. The document says, “We will seek to avoid costly, large-scale US military interventions to achieve counterterrorism objectives and will increasingly look to partners to share the responsibility for countering terrorist groups.”

While it looks like an implementation of Trump’s “America first” policy, a deeper look would reveal that it is more of a move towards “off-shore balancing” than towards actually reversing the potentially destructive role the US has been playing in the region specifically, and the whole world generally, since at least the end of the Second World War.

[…]

What the new defence deals between Saudi Arabia and the US therefore mean, keeping in mind the objectives laid out in the new strategy document, is nothing but an indirect consent to Saudi Arabia’s destructive wars in the region, particularly in Yemen and Syria.[emphasis added]

Trump visits Bethlehem bearing gifts to child killers, by Finian Cunningham

US President Donald Trump makes his first overseas visit this weekend, beginning in the Middle East and continuing to Europe. His tour to the “holy land” is being presented with feel-good, messianic spin.

Trump touches down first in Saudi Arabia, then will go to Israel and from there make a pilgrimage to Bethlehem in the Palestinian territories. After his stop at the reputed birthplace of Jesus, the American president will then fly to the Vatican, where he will be greeted by Roman Catholic Pope Francis. He will later meet NATO military leaders in Brussels.

Presenting the president’s Middle East itinerary like a momentous religious event, Trump’s senior national security adviser General HR McMaster said: “This trip is truly historic. No president has ever visited the homelands and holy sites of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths all on the same trip. And what President Trump is seeking is to unite peoples of all faiths around a common vision of peace, progress and prosperity.”

The White House, reported the Washington Post, described it as “an effort to unite three of the world’s leading religious faiths in the common cause of fighting terrorism, reining in Iran and unifying the world against intolerance.”

Hold it. Screech the brakes on this Hollywood-type script of Saint Donald saving the world. What utter claptrap.

Israeli intelligence officials furious over Trump’s loose lips

White House officials are touting Trump’s visit to Israel next week as a chance to show U.S. solidarity with its closest Middle East ally after eight years of friction between former President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

But behind the public display of harmony, Israeli intelligence officers are angry and alarmed over the U.S. president revealing sensitive information in a May 10 meeting in the White House with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

Trump divulged classified information gathered by Israel about specific terrorist plotting by the Islamic State. The information reportedly revealed Islamic State advances in bomb-making that could be used to mask an explosive device inside a laptop, and also referenced the city where the unfolding plot was being hatched.

The details Trump spilled likely came from a source that was also useful on Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its Hezbollah proxies in Syria and Lebanon, which are much higher priorities for Israel, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

“To the Israelis, ISIS is not that big of a concern,” the defense official said, using an alternate acronym for the Islamic State. “We have a partner that has done us a favor. They went out of their way to support us in a campaign against ISIS, that they have no real skin in.”

Moscow condemns new US-led coalition strike near Syrian al-Tanf ‘illegitimate’

The latest US-led coalition airstrike against Syrian pro-government forces in southern Syria severely violated Syria’s sovereignty and negatively affected the prospects of political settlement in the crisis-torn country, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Friday.

Sott Comment: Finian Cunningham has noted who the US was really protecting:

Syrian sources claim that the latest US air strike was carried out to protect militants being trained by American special forces inside Syrian territory. Those militants, known as Maghaweer al Thawra, are part of the Al Qaeda terror network, according to independent journalist Vanessa Beeley in email correspondence with this author.

Sott Comment: This may be one of the decades long reason for the strike: US attack on Syrian forces: Asserting ‘safe zones’

Mission creep: ‘US & UK forces getting sucked into Syrian hot war’

The presence of British, as well as American forces in Syria, is indisputably illegal under international law; this is an act of aggression no matter what the reason given by the US-led coalition, political commentators told RT.

The US-led coalition carried out a bombing raid against forces fighting for the Syrian government in the south of the country.

The coalition air strike targeting pro-government forces in Syria was unacceptable and violated the country’s sovereignty, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Over 140 killed in Libya after UN-backed govt militia ravages rival military base . . . with a few details, this title becomes very ‘real’:

The attack unfolded Thursday afternoon at Brak Al-Shati airbase, which since December has been under control of the Libyan National Army (LNA), rivaling the government in Tripoli. LNA, headed by General Khalifa Haftar, does not recognize the authority of the GNA and is linked to the rival House of Representatives (HoR), the country’s elected legislature, which operates from the city of Tobruk on Libya’s eastern Mediterranean coast.

The so-called Third Force militia, hailing from the city of Misrata, which is loyal to the UN-backed government of Prime Minister Fayez Al Sarraj, launched an attack on the airbase as the LNA soldiers were returning from a military parade held there. The servicemen were not able to offer much resistance as they were unarmed, LNA spokesman Ahmad Al-Mimari said in a statement on Friday, as cited by AFP.

“Most of them were executed,” Al-Mimari said.

Misrata State Council member Begassem Igzeit called the killings an “irresponsible and heinous crime against Libyans.”

Medical officials at a local hospital said that people killed in the bloodshed died of a variety of causes, having their throats slit by militiamen, succumbing to burns or due to being run over by military vehicles.

[…]

Libya has been divided between the Tobruk-based parliament and the UN-backed government in Tripoli. The power vacuum in the country, which emerged after the disastrous NATO-led military intervention in 2011, has been exploited by militant groups, including Al-Qaeda and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) offshoots. Those in turn have been lending support to some of the extremist factions within the country.

The new spiral of violence threatens to undermine a fragile peace deal, reached last month between Tobruk and Tripoli authorities in Rome that was brokered by Italy. The deal, hailed as a breakthrough at a time, brought hope of a political solution to the bloody conflict, which has also been playing a major role in fueling the ongoing refugee crisis gripping Europe.

Rouhani Re-elected Iran President In Landslide Victory

Iran’s moderate leader Rouhani secured a second term with a landslide victory in Friday’s presidential election, winning 57% of the vote and giving a decisive victory to pro-reform groups eager to open up the Islamic republic and re-engage with the outside world, Reuters reported. Rouhani’s hardline opponent, senior cleric Ebrahim Raisi who was running for office for the first time, a protege of Iran’s Supreme Leader and the custodian of a religious charity worth tens of billions, came in second with 38.5%.

Venezuelan general pushes for snipers to control demonstrators

Javier Farje, a Latin America affairs expert, believes the meddling of the United States in Venezuela has become “open and shameless,” saying that Washington is seeking to topple the government of President Nicolas Maduro.

“Since 2009 the US has devoted USD 49 million support [to] the opposition. They have used the Organization of American States (OAS) in order to condemn Venezuela … We must not forget that the US, since the failed coup of 2002, has been trying to undermine the Venezuelan government … and ever since they have tried to bring down the government of Venezuela,” Farje told Press TV in an interview on Saturday.

Unprecedented corruption among Brazil’s top politicians revealed in unsealed JBS plea bargain testimony

Recall that behind the latest political scandal to grip Brazil, in which president Michel Temer was accused of paying hush money to the jailed former House speaker, Eduardo Cunha (who was responsible for the impeachment of Temer’s predecessor Dilma Rouseff) to keep him from dragging Temer down as well, and which yesterday led to historic losses for the the Bovespa, was a plea bargain by the top executives of Brazil’s meatpacking giant JBS, Joseley Batista and his brother Wesley, which among other things, included an alleged recording of a phone conversation in which Batista told Temer he was paying Cunha to remain silent, to which the president was recorded saying, “You need to keep that up, okay?

Moments ago, Brazil’s O Globo newspaper reported that the latest episode in Brazil’s epic political corruption saga has been unveiled, and two things emerged. First, president Temer is under now officially under investigation for corruption and obstruction of justice.

Note: To be clear, I do not think Trump is ‘guilty’ and therefore should be impeached. I do think, however, that he is simply working with a different branch of the factions seeking to the control the planet. I receive many Newsletters from both sides of the fence, and mostly they are going crazy to impeach Trump, and I wonder if they realize if they continue on this path they are going to bring our government to a place of total dysfunction. Yet, maybe this is what is needed?

As I have also read the many posts about Trump’s Mid-East visit, I feel I must say that it is clear he intends to continue the US aggressive wars there, one way or the other. No one can tell me he really wants to do what is right, or that he has been taken over by the dark interests. Trump’s history, IMO, makes it clear that to begin with he is weak and has very few morals. Why now, with the pressure on him, would he change?

Note: We have heard over and over again to prepare for chaos and confusion, but this is playing out a bit differently than I expected. I think those who were going to create chaos, are doing so, yes  — but it looks to me like the chaos they are creating is completely out of their control 🙂 This says to me that ‘the end’ is also out of their control — a very interesting idea to consider! This sort of ‘game’ can no longer go on forever — if that is the idea, because the financial situation is fragile and is also out of their control. Just the headlines at Zerohedge are telling us this. Although they may drag this insanity out for a period of time, change is coming, and even if they try to hold onto control, I don’t think they are any longer in charge of what that change will be.

The Real ‘Monster’ Eating The Nation

“The colossal security apparatus of this country has become a monster eating America… the Deep State’s main motive is moving heaven and earth to dump Trump… But when they do, of course, they are libel to foment an insurrection every bit as ugly as the dust-up that followed the shelling of Fort Sumter.”

“While today was an important victory, an important vindication, the road is far from over,” Assange said standing on the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Friday. 

He made the remarks after Marianne Ny, the chief prosecutor in Sweden, announced that she “has decided to discontinue the investigation regarding suspected rape” by Assange.

Assange also lambasted the UK police who said they would still arrest him if he came out of the Ecuadorian embassy because he had broken his conditions for bail by not surrendering himself to police.

 “The UK said it would arrest me regardless,” he stated. 

“But it by no means erases the years of detention without charge in prison, under house arrest and almost five years here in this embassy without sunlight, seven years without charge while my children grew up without me. And that is not something I can forget, it is not something I can forgive,” he said.

Assange also vowed to continue publishing secret US documents on WikiLeaks.

“Today we published material from the CIA,” he said.

He also thanked the government of Ecuador for granting him political asylum despite “intense pressure,” as well as his legal team and others who had supported him.

In his ten minute speech, Assange also pointed to the release of the American whistleblower and former US Army soldier Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley Manning) who landed in prison after she leaked nearly 750,000 military files and cables to WikiLeaks. 

“We managed to have him released 28 years early from his sentence,” Assange said, using the male pronoun for Manning. In one of his final acts before leaving office in January, then-US President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s 35-year prison sentence.

Fearing extradition from Sweden to the United States over his leak of classified US data on WikiLeaks, Assange sought refuge at the Ecuadorian mission in June 2012 after Swedish prosecutors issued a warrant for his arrest over allegations of rape and sexual assault filed by two women in Sweden in 2010.

Ecuador granted Assange political asylum in 2012, but a constant police presence and the arrest order have prevented him from exiting the embassy in London ever since.

HOSPITAL EYE-WITNESS BREAKS SETH RICH MURDER CONSPIRACY WIDE OPEN

4th year surgery resident here who rotated at WHC (Washington Hospital Center) last year, it won’t be hard to identify me but I feel that I shouldn’t stay silent.

Seth Rich was shot twice, with 3 total gunshot wounds (entry and exit, and entry). He was taken to the OR emergency where we performed an exlap and found a small injury to segment 3 of the liver which was packed and several small bowel injuries (pretty common for gunshots to the back exiting the abdomen) which we resected ~12cm of bowel and left him in discontinuity (didn’t hook everything back up) with the intent of performing a washout in the morning. He did not have any major vascular injuries otherwise. I’ve seen dozens of worse cases than this which survived and nothing about his injuries suggested to me that he’d sustained a fatal wound.

In the meantime he was transferred to the ICU and transfused 2 units of blood when his post-surgery crit came back ~20. He was stable and not on any pressors, and it seemed pretty routine. About 8 hours after he arrived we were swarmed by LEOs and pretty much everyone except the attending and a few nurses was kicked out of the ICU (disallowing visiting hours -normally every odd hour, eg 1am, 3am, etc- is not something we do routinely). It was weird as hell. At turnover that morning we were instructed not to round on the VIP that came in last night (that’s exactly what the attending said, and no one except for me and another resident had any idea who he was talking about).

No one here was allowed to see Seth except for my attending when he died. No code was called. I rounded on patients literally next door but was physically blocked from checking in on him. I’ve never seen anything like it before, and while I can’t say 100% that he was allowed to die, I don’t understand why he was treated like that. Take it how you may, /pol/, I’m just one low level doc. Something’s fishy though, that’s for sure.

This is as far as George has gone today.
