Evening UPDATES:

2 guilty in 1st trial over Bundy standoff in Nevada

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 . . .

Comment: Speechless. There is nothing good to say about this plan, and too many bad things in this short space to even begin.

’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”.

Candidate Macron: An insider disguised as an outsider, flat out opportunism

Pepe Escobar: Emmanuel Clinton versus Marine LeTrump  🙂 🙂 🙂 

Here’s the body count in the latest geopolitical earthquake afflicting the West: The Socialist Party in France is dead. The traditional Right is comatose. What used to be the Extreme Left is alive, and still kicking.

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. . . .

The Chinese Foreign Ministry also released a statement, calling to preserve Syria ‘s sovereignty and territorial integrity, while also firmly rejecting and foreign military intervention against Syria.

President Assad accuses Jordan of planning Syria invasion

The Destruction of Syria Will Legitimize Israeli Land Grabs . . . it seems we can’t ever leave Israel out of anything. . .

Israel’s deputy minister for diplomacy Michael Oren has announced that ‘there is no Syria to negotiate with’, which means that Israel’s illegal occupation of the Golan should be recognized by the international community.

Capitalizing on the chaos and destruction of a six-year war to push for international recognition of occupied land? That’s not very neighborly.

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

‘Macron will deliver a weak France, exactly what Brussels & Berlin want’, RT, Op-Ed 

Jean-Pierre Thomas, former adviser to Nicolas Sarkozy

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.

Europe needs big, big reforms. The majority of the people in France more and more are against Europe. It’s a pity. So we have to reform Europe. I don’t think he is on the way to do it…

Senior Russian senator names top 3 idealogical threats to civilized world

“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.” . . . 

 *** Partitioning the Middle East: A Roadmap to US-Israeli Hegemony, by Bas Spliet, Newsbud

We are often told that the invasion and occupation of Iraq and the war in Syria are disastrous failures of Western foreign policy. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Do you see clarity in Steve?

Establishment Shunts Establishment Puppet into the Élysée: More Warmongering To Follow

In his “victory” speech in the 1st round of the French presidential elections, Emmanuel Macron said he will represent all French people “in facing the threat of nationalists”.

Apparently being a French nationalist is now a hate crime.

It is highly suspicious that Macron went through with most votes and will now likely win the Presidency on May 7th.

Here’s a 39 year old Rothschild banker who was virtually unknown less than one year ago, endorsed by Obama and NATO, never elected to public office, spent a couple of years as a shoe-in economy minister under Hollande where he proposed a ‘labor’ law that bears his name that hundreds of thousands protested against and had to be forced through by executive decree and with a manifesto slightly less bland than his personality.

Hollande’s presidency, under which Macron served, is probably the least popular in French history. And yet we’re expected to believe that a majority of French voted for this guy??!

Sounds like a rigged game to me.

Slavery may be deemed a historical term in many societies at this point, but it’s certainly not a thing of the past. Human trafficking, for instance, produces hundreds of billions of dollars in profit by trapping millions of people in unfathomable situations around the world. Human traffickers resort to violence, threats, deception, debt bondage, and other forms of manipulation to force people to take part in commercial sex or other services against their consent.

According to the International Labour Organization, there are an estimated 20.9 million victims of human trafficking globally, with 68 percent of them trapped in forced labor, 26 percent being children, and 55 percent being women and girls. The organization also estimates that forced labor and human trafficking is a $150 billion industry worldwide.

Kremlin advisor reveals ‘cure for US aggression’ [full article below]

Putin’s advisor also believes that Donald Trump is just “doing what the ruling elite expects him to do”

© Sergey Konkov/TASS

The only way to stop the United States’ aggression is to get rid of dollar addiction, a Kremlin advisor said on Friday.

“The more aggressive the Americans are the sooner they will see the final collapse of the dollar as the only way for the victims of American aggression to stop this aggression is to get rid of the dollar. As soon as we and China are through with the dollar, it will be the end of the United States’ military might,” Sergey Glazyev said in an interview with TASS.

Commenting on the policy of the new US president, Glazyev noted that Donald Trump is doing what the ruling elite expects him to do.

“I had no illusions about him, that he will change the policy. First, America’s aggressiveness in the world is rooted in the aspiration to preserve America’s hegemony in a situation when they have already ceded leadership in the economy to China,” he said.

“The United States has no tools to make all others use the dollar other than a truncheon. That is why they are indulging in a hybrid war with the entire world to shift the burden on their debts onto other countries, to confine all to the dollar and weaken territories they cannot control.”

“In this context, the anti-Russian hysteria and growing Russophobia can be seen as a long-term factor linked with the specific interests of the United States’ ruling elite,” the Kremlin advisor said.

“In objective terms, they are conducting a global hybrid war and in subjective terms, this war is aimed against us. More to it, as it always happens when a global leader is changed, the war is for control over rimland nations. In the period of WWI and WWII, Britain acted as a provoker in a bid to keep its global leadership. Now the United States is doing the same. And Trump expresses these interests,” he said.

Krieger: The American Empire Under Trump Has Become Increasingly Desperate, Dangerous, & Insecure

… Think about what you just read for a minute. The DOJ apparently spent 7 years trying to figure out how to void the First Amendment, yet it couldn’t jail a single bank executive during that entire time. What does this tell you about where the government’s priorities lie? Even more disturbingly, it doesn’t matter which Goldman Sachs/deep state puppet sits in the White House, the agenda moves forward. It is an imperial agenda to protect and secure the wealth and power of the few against the well being and liberty of the many.

The U.S. empire doesn’t work for the people, it works for a small handful of elitists and insiders who have completely gamed a corrupt system for their advantage. The America people are starting to figure this out, partly due to the journalism of Wikileaks, which is why the deep state hates Assange so passionately.

The American empire is becoming increasingly insecure and desperate, which also makes it increasingly dangerous. Empires don’t reform, and as we can see from Trump’s first 100 days, we certainly aren’t going to see a reversal of course from him.

We the people need to keep our eye on the prize and stop bickering with one another over relatively trivial issues. That is precisely what the status quo wants and actively encourages us to do. They can’t keep us oppressed if we stand together, so let’s not make their jobs easier by constantly fighting with one another. We need to stand tall and say enough is enough. That we are sick of your puppets, your wars and your Wall Street bailouts. America is tired of being controlled by a small group of unaccountable, incompetent, greedy, unethical crooks running around stealing everything in sight.

Enough is enough.

Deutsche Bank: “It Was Good While It Lasted”

…Fast forward to this weekend, when in his latest fixed income weekly report, Deutsche Bank’s Dominic Konstam – who two weeks ago flipped back from being passionately bearish on rates and TSYs, and a supporter of the reflation trade, to anticipating much lower yields and a slowdown in the economy – writes that “It was good while it lasted.

What he is referring to is both the so-called “bear market” in bonds as well as global growth momentum, and in taking a page from the second derivative playbook we have focused on over the past two months, he expects it to decline sharply now that US excess liquidity has reached a downward inflection point, and as a result for the foreseeable future monetary policy will be a headwind: “historically, the peak in G3 yields has coincided with peaks in output momentum. It would not be unreasonable to expect at least a 50 bps decline from peak to trough in G3 yields following a peak in yield momentum.”

Would China strike North Korea? by Finian Cunningham . . .

Maybe that is why such an idea has disappeared from the news.

N. Korea accuses Australia of ‘blinding toeing US line,’ threatens nuclear strike . . . It sounds to me like North Korea is like a terrified child, who speaks the truth in a crazy world — and is screaming loudly for someone to please ‘hear them’ — and help them. Are there any adults listening? They should be, because unlike a helpless child, North Korea has the ability to lash out! What would you do if for years you have been treated abusively, as nothing but a pawn, like dirt — and nobody seems to care, and you see your demise coming . . . anyway? Think about it! Very seriously!! Are there any adults in the world . . . listening? Probably not, and then North Korea will get the blame, like an abused child, for the lack of mature adult caring! It all makes me so sick!!

Pence calls on China to pressure for peaceful & nuke-free Korean . . . Many have questioned the astuteness of the US’ ‘take’ on China helping them with North Korea. Soon, I think we’re going to find out what the truth is concerning this so-called relationship that exists between Trump/Xi. China has said over and over again that this situation should be resolved peacefully through negotiation. What then is coming at the Korean people? 

North Korea Warns China Of “Catastrophic Consequences” For Siding With U.S.

Having repeatedly threatened the annihilation of its neightbor to the south, and most recently warning of a “super-mighty preemptive strike” against the US, one day after it emerged that Pyongyang appeared to have resumed activity at its Punggye-ri Nuclear test site, North Korea asked China not to step up anti-North sanctions, warning of “catastrophic consequences” in their bilateral relations.

To Trump – in North Korea you will be murdering human beings! MUST READ article for all members of the human race!!!

I have already said a lot about North Korea. I have shown images. I have spoken about the unimaginable pain this country has had to endure. I have spoken broadly about its tremendous gesture – of helping to liberate and then to educate so many parts of the world, including the enormous and devastated continent of Africa.

Still the propaganda against the people of DPRK rules.

Let me try again; let me try again and again and again:

North Korea is a beautiful country, inhabited by human beings, with blood circulating through their veins. Despite what you are directly and indirectly told, these people feel pain and they are capable of experiencing great joy. Like others, they often dream, fall in love, and suffer when being insulted or betrayed or abandoned. They laugh and cry, they hold hands, get angry, even desperate. They have great hopes for a better life and they work very hard trying to build their future.

So listen well, manager, or supervisor of what you yourself call the “free world”. Or how should I call you, President? Ok, fine, President… If you shoot your Tomahawk missiles at them, at DPRK, (as you recently did at Syria), or if you drop your bloody “Mother of All Bombs” on them (as you just did on some god-forsaken hamlet in Afghanistan, just in order to demonstrate your spite and destructive force), their bodies will be torn to pieces, people will die in tremendous agony; wives will be howling in despair burying their husbands, grandparents will be forced to cover the dead bodies of their tiny grandchildren with white sheets, entire neighborhoods and villages will cease to exist.

Of course you people do it everywhere; you think that you are the masters of the world, so used to spreading agony and desolation all over the world, but let me remind you one more time and put it on the record: it may all look like some fun-to-play computer game or a TV show, but it is not; it is all real, when your shit hits the targets, it’s damn real! I have seen plenty of it, and I have had really enough!  . . .

Central Banks Give Market “All Clear” To BTFD If French Election Upsets Market . . . take a look at the chards and see how they rigged it for Brexit and for Trump’s election. . . shaking head, yet again!

Having already ‘dropped’ over one trillion dollars in 2017 to keep reality at bay, it appears the world’s central bankers are not about to let a French election mishap spoil the illusion.

Just as central bankers gathered at The BIS’ Basel Tower just says before the Brexit vote, so judging by the statements today, the monetary manipulators stand ready to rescue markets once again should the first round of the French election ‘surprise’ the ‘free’ markets.

The dice have been rolled and it looks like French electors may buck the political narrative.

The Decline of the West; the destiny of Western civilization; the unraveling of the EU; the future of democracy itself. All stops are pulled when it comes to how the French presidential elections will shape the geopolitics of a young and turbulent 21st century.

And it’s about to come down to the fate of three men and one woman – not exactly rising to the occasion, rather overwhelmed by it.

“What we’re doing through our investigation process is to figure out exactly what is it they did and how they did it so that we can help, equip and assist our allies to prevent the same kind of thing happening to them,” said Ryan, who was supposed to meet with Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid later in the day.

The United States is spending an estimated $34 million to renovate a military base it has at an undisclosed location in the Middle East, a report says.

The renovation by the 386th Air Expeditionary Wing of the US Air Force is being conducted on a base which is known by US forces as “The Rock,” Stars and Stripes reported on Friday.

The military force is repairing the base runway, expanding aircraft taxi areas, and constructing shelters for the MQ-9 Reaper drone and new living quarters.

“As missions change and operations increase or decrease, so do our facilities and operational footprint,” US Air Forces Central Command said in a statement. “Construction on the base is an example driven directly by these type of requirements.”

The base houses several C-130s and C-17s, supplies equipment and personnel who participate in US Central Command operations in Afghanistan and coalition so-called fights against Daesh in Iraq and Syria.

The Air Force also carries out electronic attacks and drone missions from the base, the report added.

Although the US military leaders have denied any direct link between the renovation and a prolonged presence in the region, they have alluded to their intention of maintaining their presence there into the future.

The US military might remain in Iraq for years even after defeating Daesh terrorists, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford have said.

US military spending stands at approximately $600 billion annually, but President Donald Trump has pledged a “massive” increase in the Pentagon’s budget spending to implement “the greatest military build-up in American history.”
