UPDATE – Worsening Oroville Dam Crisis: Will It Become the Worst Disaster In US History? (VIDEO)

Conclusion: In the face of the current situation, I want to reiterate the need to evacuate, immediately.  If the authorities will not act responsibly, the locals need to just pack up and leave. You can bet that if the 2 million people were all illegal aliens that Gov. Brown would have already commenced evacuations.

How the Trump regime was manufactured by a war inside the Deep State. by Nafeez Ahmed and shared by Leuren Moret, MUST READ

A systemic crisis in the global Deep System has driven the violent radicalization of a Deep State faction

 . . . This investigation will help to establish a ground state for anyone on which to build a meaningful strategy of response that accounts for the full systemic complexity of our Trumpian moment. . . [I haven’t had time to read this, but it seems to be the sort of article with which we all need to spend time. ~J continue]

UPDATE – CONCLUSION (FOR BUSY PEOPLE): In an alternative scenario, agents at different levels in both parties, third parties, and across civil society begin to see our Trumpian moment for what it really is.

They realize that both the conservative and liberal polarities are being disrupted by the global systemic crisis. That the Deep State is being disrupted by the global systemic crisis. And that Trump is merely an effort by a branch of the Deep State to stave off the disruption. And that the failures of the other branch of the Deep State are precisely what enabled and emboldened this eventuality.

In that scenario, the current political tendencies of the millennial generation open the possibility for new paths forward for politics, whether conservative or liberal: to re-build their parties, organizations and paradigms in accordance with the emerging dynamics of a global system in transition to a new phase state: beyond carbon, beyond endless growth, beyond mass consumerism, beyond the banal polarities of left and rig

Michael Flynn: minding our own business vs. saving the world, by Jon Rappoport  . . . Jon looks at our role as ‘the meddling messiah.’

Flynn talked to some Russian and said the US under Trump might ease sanctions against Russia? This was the high crime? This was why he had to go?

What sanctions? Imposed for what purpose? What are all these people in Washington talking about?

Let’s go back to the beginning.

At the founding of the Republic, there was a chance to mind our own national business, and a few years later, outgoing President George Washington warned the country to stay away from entangling foreign alliances.

But of course he was ignored.

So flashing forward, now we hear about interconnected, global, “inevitable situations” which require our attention.

Interest rates, trade imbalances, taxes, wars, foreign military bases, binding treaties, unfriendly regimes, national debt, loans unpaid; on and on it goes—as if these cluster-problems arose out of some sacred duty to solve other people’s difficulties; and we’re locked in, we have to meddle, we have to be the meddling messiah, we’re deep in a massive soap opera called interdependence. . . continue

Russia will not be talked to from a position of strength, only as an equal partner, the Russian defense minister said, commenting on the latest remark by his US counterpart. It comes as senior military commanders of the two nations are about to meet.

“We are prepared to restore cooperation with the Pentagon,” Sergey Shoigu told journalists on Thursday. “But attempts to establish a dialogue with from a position of strength would be fruitless.”

“Just as we did throughout the darkest days of the Cold War, the United States remains willing to keep open political channels of cooperation and deescalate tensions,” he said. “We remain open to opportunities to restore a cooperative relationship with Moscow, while being realistic in our expectations and ensuring our diplomats negotiate from a position of strength.”

China May Bar US Ships From Passing Through Its Waters, Zerohedge

According to the Chinese press, the draft would empower maritime authorities to prevent foreign ships from entering Chinese waters if it is decided that the ships may harm traffic safety and order.  The draft revisions would grant authorities the right to designate specific areas and temporarily bar foreign ships from passing through those areas according to their own assessment of maritime traffic safety. The revisions are based on the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and Chinese laws on the sea, adjacent areas and exclusive economic zones, the office said.

It was not clear how China would implement and enforce this bar, or what the punishment for transgressors would be.

Trump, Netanyahu hint at new Middle East initiative, involves many Arab countries

[…] Responding to a question from a reporter, Netanyahu said that the best way to find peace would be through “regional approach from involving our newfound Arab partners in pursuit of a broader peace and peace with the Palestinians.”

Trump was visibly surprised by Netanyahu’s level of openness and even said that he didn’t expect the Israeli leader to speak about the negotiations publicly. However, since it already happened, the president promised to announce soon a major Middle East initiative that will be much broader than previous proposals, concentrated on the two-state solution. According to Trump, it’s up to Israelis and Palestinians to decide whether they want to live in two separate states or may coexist within one country.

    Well, there’s a lot going on.
    And I don’t know what to make of all the little details, twists and turns. Except that it’s more obvious now than it’s ever been that there are two or more power factions struggling for “control” of (or the ability to dictate) the situation. The curtains hiding them are beginning to be drawn aside. The mainstream media took the lead by throwing their support behind Clinton and all the bizarre stuff you might associate with her and her world.
    In the “old days” (the ’60s?) it used to seem that the people who said they cared, like JFK or MLK, really did care, and that differences of opinion on how to handle various issues were being openly discussed. Now I’m no so sure that was as true as I thought it was then. But these days it’s a total joke. Half the people who get their face on camera act like they’re in some Hollywood talent show trying to impress the audience rather than say anything helpful or rational. It’s all entertainment. It isn’t even propaganda any more. It’s just entertainment. I’m sure that millions of people who live in the flood basin below Oroville will feel properly entertained as a fifty foot wall of water washes over them, ending their lives and washing away all their dreams. But for those NOT in that flood basin, it will largely be no more than entertainment. In the same way that war, crime and genocide have been used to entertain the masses for centuries if not eons.
    So I have to go back to basics to get any sense of understanding about this whole mess.On the one hand there are the spiritual basics. As spiritual beings, we will survive no matter what happens to our bodies or our planet. So why get all worried? Because a being doesn’t just “survive.” His condition and his attitudes survive with him. If he has descended to the level of a criminal, he will probably stay that way. If he has spent lifetimes as a struggling combatant, he will probably continue to do so. And if he has been a leader, but had his hopes for success broken by others or “accidents of nature,” then he’ll survive as a broken leader.
    So, if we want to repair the situation, rather than just survive it, we need some period of relative social stability, freedom, and fair play to accomplish that. The ’50s and ’60s in the U.S. – maybe even the ’70s – felt like that. Thirty years! But we didn’t get the situation repaired in that amount of time. Some think we made no progress at all. I don’t agree with that. But we didn’t make enough. Now it’s getting rougher again; our chances may be running out.
    Then there are the basics of physicality. Physicality is our game; it’s our “entertainment.” We created it for ourselves. To the extent that we lose track of this fact, we get lost in our own creation, and tend to fall through the bottom of it. What you need in physicality is ethics. This involves the understandings necessary to keep the game going. It involves the technologies you use at a physical level to survive and possibly thrive. It can be a very tough game. And if you don’t know the technologies of ethical survival, you will end up just cycling through it, over and over, never really learning anything.
    Part of the technology of ethics is the realization that evil exists in life and must be kept under control. This is in fact the basic game. If you can keep ethics in, you can have your game, and perhaps create better ones. We have not kept ethics in.
    Oddly, every major power group claims that they are here to get ethics in and it is someone else who is being out-ethics – not us! Even in my church we play this game to some extent. But in the end you HAVE to know who the real criminals are, or you will come under their influence. And there sure seem to be enough criminals to go around!
    To be ethical and stay alive as any kind of a public figure has always been a huge problem, and continues to be. Yet, how ethical was JFK? It’s hard to say now. It seems he played around a bit. MLK I feel a little more confident about. So, the FBI I feel very unconfident about, or let’s say – Hoover. Most groups can’t be labelled “criminal” with any great accuracy. Most groups harbor a few of those types. Some seem to be dominated by them.
    So now we come to assessing ET, the new factor in the situation. It’s not that they have only recently contacted us. It’s that for the first time they seem to be recruiting us into their game. Before, they were the Gods, and we had to worship them. No more. But what has been our reaction to this change? Our “leaders” have almost totally covered it up, and ET seems to be helping them do it. They don’t want us to know the truth, either! I have been warned about ET.
    Was it right for the power groups to steal wealth from the population to secretly develop a technology that we could use to protect our “sovereignty” (whatever that really means) in the galactic game? If that’s what happened, it can be argued that it was very poorly done. Our criminals took the lead from the criminal ETs – rape and pillage! Are our non-criminal leaders taking a more businesslike approach to the situation? Offering trade agreements or something of the sort? We don’t really know.
    But in the background, I think that’s what these guys are all secretly involved in, besides all the other bizarre stuff they are involved in. So their attention on doing something right for the people of Earth is hovering down near zero. I don’t think any of them know what ET is really going to do. I think the ones on top who know about ET are uniformly worried about the whole thing. They opted out of a spiritual approach (for the most part) which was a mistake. Spiritual knowledge is a part of ET technology. So now we are left with a bunch of really weird spacecraft and all these secret underground bases and nothing to really show for it. No certainty about the future. No certainly of self.
    The wrong catastrophe could throw the whole planet back to cave man days. We would have a new lore, one based on electronic gadgets, rockets and machines, machines, machines. But we would have basically blown our chance to repair ourselves. And I don’t think all the current noise is about this basic problem, which is why I’m not that interested in it. I am still interested in the work of people who acknowledge the importance of ET on Earth. Steven Greer, Courtney Brown, Simon Parkes, Corey Goode, and Ron Hubbard of course. The rest seems to me like mostly noise.
