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. Hold tight! ~J

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.

Please check if you have not the Jim Stone site on Seth Rich — and be sure to scroll down for more info! http://82.221.129.208/baaasepaget3.html

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.

May 18, 2017 Evening News

Best of the Web: Not interested in truth: U.S. rejects Putin’s offer to share transcript of contentious Trump-Lavrov meeting . . . this article continues to be extremely interesting, beyond that which I hae quoted for you here.

US rejects and ridicules unprecedented Russian offer though it offers the one opportunity of ascertaining beyond all doubt what actually happened at the meeting between Trump and Lavrov.

[…]

The prevailing response to the offer is that it was not intended seriously. The tone was set by BBC journalist who speaking on British television claimed that in making the offer Putin was having, and was just trolling the US, and that there is “no possibility” of the US accepting a transcript written on “Kremlin notepaper”.

This is to misrepresent what was a perfectly serious offer despite the humorous tone with which Putin spoke.

That the offer was intended entirely seriously can be judged by the words Putin used when he made the offer”

As for the results of Foreign Minister Lavrov’s visit to the United States and his meeting with President Trump, we assess the results highly. This was the first visit, a return visit by our foreign minister, after we received US Secretary of State Tillerson here in Moscow.

This is normal and natural international practice. At the same time, however, we see the growing political schizophrenia in the United States. There is no other way I can explain the accusations against the current president that he handed whichever secrets over to Lavrov.

Incidentally, I spoke with him [Lavrov] today about this matter, and I will have to give him a ticking off for not sharing these secrets with me. Not with me, nor with our intelligence officials. This was really not good of him at all.

What’s more, if the US administration has no objection, we are ready to provide a transcript of Lavrov’s conversation with Trump to the US Senate and Congress. Of course, we would do this only if the American administration so desires.

Initially, when we watched the first developments in this internal political struggle, we were amused. But now, the spectacle is becoming quite simply sad, and it is causing us concern, because it is hard to imagine just how far people willing to think up this kind of nonsense and absurdity might go. All of this is ultimately about fanning anti-Russian sentiment.

This does not surprise me. They are using anti-Russian slogans to destabilize the internal political situation in the United States, but they do not realise that they are harming their own country. If this is the case, then they are quite simply stupid. If they do understand what they are doing, then they are dangerous and unscrupulous people. In any event, this is the United States’ own affair and we have no intention of getting involved.

As for assessments of President Trump’s actions so far in office, this too is not our affair. It is for the American people, American voters, to give their assessment. Of course, this will be possible only once he is fully allowed to work. (bold italics added)

An important point about Putin – and one which I have made previously, and which was very obvious to me on the two occasions when I have seen him in person (at the two SPIEF conferences which I have attended in St. Petersburg in 2014 and 2016) – is that he is one of those people who uses humour to hide their anger.

Thorbjorn Jagland: These pictures (protocol photoshoot) won’t cause any problems for you?
Sergey Lavrov: It depends on what kind of secrets you pass on to me

Russia threatened to use tactical nukes? US commission produces wildest claims in push for military buildup . . . Americans will surely hear this on their news, but not much else. No wonder they are lost regarding the truth. When the truth hits, the emotional response is going to be huge, because I believe ‘hit’ them it will! It must! By putting out all these lies, this is exactly what they are so desperately trying to avoid.

All You Need to Know About James Comey [full article] . . . why do we keep scrambling? When are we going to get rid of all of them?

News & Commentary on May 17, 2017 at 6:05 pm 

Keep Calm and Do the Math

By Catherine Austin Fitts

James Comey, the now former head of the FBI, is also the former General Counsel of Lockheed Martin, the largest defense contractor and weapons manufacturer in America and hedge fund advisor.

Lockheed Martin used to run significant information and payment systems at the Department of Defense. They appear to have spun their subsidiary out of the company after DOD closed their fiscal 2015, with $6.5 trillion of undocumentable adjustments.  I wrote about it recently in Lockheed Cuts and Runs and Crazy Man vs. Criminal: Cut and Run, Monica Lewinsky and Real Trouble Ahead.

This is all part of our ongoing coverage of the financial coup d’etat and trillions of missing money: See Financial Coup D’Etat & Missing Money: Links and Financial Coup & Missing Money: Quotes

Here is what you need to know about James Comey. Everything he said or did related to Hillary Clinton or President Trump is unimportant. The fact that James Comey did and said nothing about $6. 5 trillion missing from your government in fiscal 2015 tells you all you need to know about James Comey.

Here is a description of the FBI’s legal powers and authority. If the US government is missing trillions of dollars, don’t you think it is the FBI’s highest priority to figure out where the money went and get it back?

If I was an invisble, secret governing board responsible to preserve the trillions I had stolen, I would sure want to break up the country or be in a position to engineer significant currency debasement and financial fraud. It’s a lot easier than explaining to people that you stole the money that they had saved to pay for health care and Social Security.  I would also want to start WW III – that would keep the power and money rolling my way.  There is nothing like a dangerous fight to provide air cover for corruption and financial fraud. You can blow up a lot of records and make endless excuses.

You should also remember that the last time these folks tried to engineer an impeachment process was when all the money started to disappear from the federal accounts and the federal mortgage programs were used to explode the mortgage fraud that lead to $27 trillion of bailouts for the banks.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Every chance you get to speak with a federal public official or a member of the national press, you should ask one question:

WHERE IS THE MONEY?

James Comey paid $3 million for his Connecticut mansion. The US Congress can not pass health care legislation because there is no money to pay for it and sorely needs a political distraction. Let me suggest now is a good time to connect the dots between Mr. Comey’s personal wealth and the debasement of the United States and your finances.

Sott Comment: More from The Duran:

Even the modern Communist Party of the Russian Federation, under the leadership of Gennady Zyuganov has embraced the idea of religious ecumenicism.

[Video]

As I previously wrote,

“Russia suffered a profound spiritual crisis in the 1990s at every level, both theoretically and practically. The internal stability and prosperity afforded by the Putin years has given Russia a sense of peace and has allowed Russia to return to its heritage as the largest Orthodox Christian state in the world.

As such, some would say Russia has a duty to defend fellow Christians. But Russian foreign policy is articulated differently. Russia defends its allies against aggression, but the fact remains that in doing so, Russia is by default, living up to its tradition as a defender of faith. But it is not just the Orthodox faith Russia is defending.

Russia is defending Muslims throughout the world at a time when western wars of aggression target Islamic populations and when western politicians like Geert Wilders lambaste Islam in the most disparaging terms.

Russia must make it clear to a Muslim world bombarded by western and Saudi propaganda, that it is a more honest defender of Islam than any major power on earth. It is able to say so because of its record of legality in foreign affairs and also because of a Christian tradition that Europe and to a large extent, America has entirely forsaken”.

The importance of Russia in solving the political, spiritual and other long term crises in the Islamic world cannot be overstated. Many of these crises are the products of post-colonial realities which have in recent decades been augmented by neo-colonial meddling by western powers.

It is clear from their support of jihadists in Syria, that western powers would rather see a weak Islamic world in the grip of savages, rather than strong, tolerant, secular governments such as the one in Damascus that the west has tried and continues to try so hard to destabilize and destroy.

Russia by contrast favors a model of complete independence for Arab states and countries in the wider Islamic world and furthermore, Russia seeks partnership with countries whose constitutions whether secular (like Syria) or theocratic (like Iran), defend and protect religious minorities, particularly Christians.

Russia favors balance and it is only through further positive engagement with the wider Islamic world, including Russia’s vast Muslim communities, that Russia will be able to achieve this.

South Korea’s New Moon: What to expect from the new President . . . dare I say here that we are in a time of transition, and for the moment new leaders are likely to be treading very carefully.

Even before the new president of South Korea entered office, we wrote an article highlighting the problems that awaited the successor to Park Geun-hye’s presidency. And at this point, the author would want to draw the readers’ attention to the fact that in assessing the course of action that the current leader of the Republic of Korea would assume, we must divorce ourselves from pleasant illusions associated with the dual logic that if the past president was bad, it naturally follows that the present one will be good, and that he will definitely try to do things differently and better. The question of how this usually ends is best answered illustratively by the example of Donald Trump, and how the attitude of the public towards him dramatically shifted during his first hundred days in office.

In all fair assessment, Moon Jae-in is more than likely to take a different stance on many issues. However, this is not so much related to ideological differences existing within the state as to the factional struggles. Such a kind of logic and way of thinking requires the opposition to criticize any initiative of the current administration, and on having come to power, they are as a matter of principle always obliged to oppose its decisions.

The legislation does not specifically name what apparel is banned, however, leaving the wearing of balaclavas and other cold-weather coverings in a legal gray zone.

Turkey wants US envoy removed in growing spat over Syrian Kurds

US-Led Coalition Strikes Hit Syrian Army Near At Tanf – UPDATES . . . as I contemplate the information below, I wonder what the US would do, were Russia to have initiated such a response, even if it were legal . . . 

Sott Comment [contains the UPDATES] : See also: US coalition jets strike Syrian government convoy in Southern Syria

Interesting timing, coming after this report, with commentary from Russia Insider:

You thought US needed Syria’s permission to set itself up in Syria? You had it wrong. It’s actually Syria which requires American permission to retake its territory:

As we reported last week the Syrian army is making progress in the southern desert. It is edging eastwards towards the Iraqi border and towards joint US-rebel positions at al-Tanf border crossing.

The question is all the more acute now as it has become apparent the US believes Syria requires US permission to restore its territory. As The Telegraph reports:

The US has sent a clear message that any government advance towards their base will not be accepted. However, it is unclear how the special forces will react to any serious provocation.

As the Telegraph report pointed out, this set Assad’s troops on “a collision course” with the U.S. and their proxies. We guess we now know what the U.S. response is to any “serious provocation”. (Keep in mind that the presence of the U.S. forces is the actual provocation – they’re there illegally!)

Update: RT reports that the group attacked was a militia group allied with the SAA. The U.S. statement reads:

“This action was taken after apparent Russian attempts to dissuade Syrian pro-regime movement south towards At Tanf were unsuccessful, a coalition aircraft show of force, and the firing of warning shots,” the statement said.

The Syrian forces allegedly entered a so-called “de-confliction” zone in the Homs Governorate, which was perceived as a threat to “US-allied troops.” The militia forces allegedly clashed with the Pentagon-backed Maghawir Al-Thawra militant group (formerly known as New Syrian Army), which called in coalition air support.

We notified the coalition that we were being attacked by the Syrian army and Iranians in this point and the coalition came and destroyed the advancing convoy,” Reuters cited a militant representative as saying.

Apparently a tank and bulldozer were hit. Al-Masdar is reporting six killed, three injured. The U.S. says this incident does not represent a change in policy or an escalation, and that the de-confliction zone agreement remains in effect.

Head of the upper house’s Defense and Security Committee Viktor Ozerov told Sputnik: “I hope that this incident will not affect the Geneva negotiation process, but, conversely, will become the most important item on the agenda of the Geneva talks. There needs to be a clearer interaction between the coalition led by the US and the Syrian government forces.”

US Central Command spokesman Josh Jacques told Sputnik: “I believe there are casualties, but I don’t have the full battle damage assessment for the engagement at this point. We are still conducting our assessment.” He told RT:

“If they were being used,” a US Central Command spokesman told RT, casualties would be likely, but he said he is “not speculating.”

CentCom spokesman Josh Jacques told RT that an assessment of Thursday’s attack is being conducted, but that even when it is completed, there would not be an exact body count reported, because they don’t have ground access.

May 18, 2017 Afternoon News (includes UPDATES)

Putin: Russia and China compared to the West is like stability and purpose versus conflict and chaos . . . and this is why I like to hear Putin speak for himself. It is like returning to a world of sensible reason and sanity!

Putin’s trips to China – and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visits to Russia – have now become such regular events, and have become so routine, that they are now almost invisible.

As it happens Putin’s latest visit to China, which not only involved detailed discussions with China’s leaders on bilateral questions, but which was first and foremost undertaken in response to an invitation from China’s leaders to Russia to participate in China’s grandiose One Belt, One Road international forum, was highly important.

China’s One Belt, One Road initiative is ultimately intended to link together the two parts of Eurasia into a single gigantic economic and transport bloc. The Chinese and the Russians are working on marrying it with Russia’s Eurasian Economic Union into a single system of political and economic institutions as part of the ‘Greater Eurasia Project‘. Putin’s visit to Beijing was undertaken as part of the detailed work of negotiating the various aspects of the project.

Early Information: US Coalition Jets Strike Assad Convoy In Southern Syria . . . we are told nothing else; for instance, was there communication between the two different groups first? 

US coalition jets have struck an Assad convoy in Southern Syria. A US-led coalition spokesperson has confirmed that coalition strikes in southern Syria struck Syrian government militia “after it moved against US-backed forces in Syria.”

UPDATES: US-Led Coalition Strikes Hit Syrian Army Near At Tanf 

. . . and . . . 

US coalition jets strike Syrian government convoy in Southern Syria

With most expecting Trump to strike North Korea as part of his next foreign military adventure-cum-distraction from the chaos in D.C., the president once again surprised everyone by pulling a lighting bolt, striking twice in one month in the same place.

Also a ‘tweet’  and part of RT’s story: 

If true, this is FRICKIN ILLEGAL. Trump does not have Congressional authorization to attack Syria, a country that has not attacked US.

US special forces have been present in the area “for many months” to train and advise Free Syrian Army fighters. Damascus considers such Washington’s presence illegal in the country, as no official invitation has been extended to the US to conduct any military action on its territory.[emphasis added]

Peace in Syria: The West’s greatest fear

[…]
Two such crimes stand out – the massacre of Alawite villagers near Lattakia in August 2013, and the very recent bombing of bus-loads of Shiite villagers near Aleppo during a ‘siege-swap deal’. While the Rashideen bus convoy attack, which targeted and killed over 100 children, did receive evening news coverage in the Western mainstream media, the joint operation by FSA and Al Qaeda forces on unarmed villagers in Lattakia which involved equally shocking brutality and execution as well as mass kidnapping and imprisonment, passed almost unnoticed. Ditto the apparent use of those kidnapped children as suitable victims in the “Ghouta Sarin Attack” videos.

Such crimes would be notorious – like ‘Guernica’ or ‘Sbrenica’ – had they not been committed by ‘our side’ in the Syrian war – and indeed the fact that they have not become notorious is yet more indication that these violent fanatics are our mercenaries, and committing such crimes on our behalf.

[…]

It was revealed recently that some 85,000 Syrian opposition fighters have accepted the Government’s amnesty under this program, with many now fighting with the Syrian Arab Army against the insurgents. At the same time those armed groups have become increasingly dominated by foreign jihadists and mercenaries, and stripped of “legitimate Opposition” status.

Any idea that the UN is a fair mediator has now been dispelled by its latest declaration – that evacuation of the terrorist groups and their families constitutes ‘forced displacement’ and infringes on their basic human rights. In a country where some 7 million people have suffered ‘forced displacement’ from their homes over the last six years, fleeing from the areas invaded by the West’s terrorist mercenaries into parts of cities protected by the Syrian army, such a claim is deeply offensive.

Saudi Arabia casts war of words upon Iran…deadly rhetoric, by Sharmine Narwani

The Saudi princeling Mohammad bin Salman made a novice’s mistake by threatening to bring war to Iran – he put the world on notice. Any Iranian reaction now bears the full legitimacy of international law for a measured retaliation. The Saudi borders are long, its populations restive, and its soldiers have not seen this kind of war. We may yet live to see a Saudi royal eat his words.

Was Russian ambassador Karlov killed because of his North Korean connections?

[…]

[…  there is also something else. I argue that the existence of this “something” contributed to his death. The assassination of an ambassador is a very rare event in the history of the Russian diplomacy. Karlov was the first Russian ambassador to be murdered abroad since the 1920s.

In my opinion, this “something” is related to the fact that Karlov spent most of his diplomatic career, that is to say, more than twenty years of his life, on the Korean peninsula, and, most importantly, in North Korea. He was stationed in the Soviet embassy in Pyongyang from 1976 to 1981 and from 1984 to 1990 and, then, worked in the Russian Embassy in Seoul, South Korea from 1992 to 1997.[12] Most importantly, he returned to North Korea as the Russian ambassador in 2001 and remained until 2006.

Cyber attacks will usher in the ‘great economic reset’, by Brandon Smith

The world has been stunned over the past few days by the advent of “Ransomware;” the use of sophisticated cyber attacks on vital systems in order to (supposedly) extort capital from target businesses and institutions. I am always highly suspicious whenever a large scale cyber incident occurs, primarily because the manner in which these events are explained to the public does not begin to cover certain important realities. For example, the mainstream media rarely if ever discusses the fact that many digital systems are deliberately designed to be vulnerable.

Software and internet corporate monoliths have long been cooperating with the NSA through programs like PRISM to provide government agencies backdoor access to computer systems worldwide. Edward Snowden vindicated numerous “conspiracy theorists” in 2013 with his comprehensive data dumps, exposing collusion between corporations and the NSA including Microsoft, Skype, Apple, Google, Facebook and Yahoo. And make no mistake, nothing has changed since then.

As Trump Heads To MidEast, Is His Plan Finally Becoming Clear? Eric Zuesse MUST READ

The first stage of U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to restore America’s former dominance as a manufacturing country will be announced this coming weekend in Riyadh Saudi Arabia and Washington DC, but its outlines are now already more than clear.

‘Trump looking to form Arab NATO, by James Jatras [full article]

US President Donald Trump is trying his best to form the Arab equivalence of the NATO military alliance to confront Iran in the Middle East, says a political analyst in Washington.

James Jatras, a former Senate foreign policy adviser, made the remarks while discussing Trump’s upcoming Middle East tour which involves stops in Saudi Arabia, Israel and Vatican respectively.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last week that the visit was aimed at getting Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations in the region to stand in “unity” with Israel and confront Iran.

Tillerson also said that Trump had purposely chosen the three destinations for his first foreign trip because they represented Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

According to the top US diplomat, Trump wanted to “bring a message of unity” among the followers of the three religions against terror.

In an interview with Press TV on Wednesday, Jatras said the Saudi monarchs were known supporters of extremism and Trump’s claims were just a cover.

“Anybody who can characterize the Saudi monarchy and the Wahhabi establishment as peaceful and tolerant in any sense is absolutely surreal,” he said.

“As we know Saudi Arabia is the world’s foremost supporter of terrorist groups,” the analyst noted, referring to the Riyadh regime’s military aggression against Yemen as well as its funding of terror groups wreaking havoc in Syria.

He said Trump and his advisers were hard at work unite Arab countries against Iran.

“Reportedly he will announce the formation of something characterized as an Arab NATO, which is designed to counter specifically Iran,” he explained.

He said most the actions that Trump has undertaken over the past weeks were forced upon him by his critics.

Pointing to recent calls for Trump’s impeachment, Jatras argued that the pressure was growing on the president to “adopt the belligerent policies of his critics.”

For example, Trump’s critics began praising him after his last month attack against a Syrian airbase, Jatras said.

“I hope he does not go further down this road, but it appears that he might,” he concluded.

Cyber Attacks Are The Perfect Trigger For A Stock Market Crash

US President Donald Trump’s disclosure of highly classified information regarding the Daesh terrorist group with Russian diplomats has caused a lot of controversy. However, Trump has defended the move, asserting that as commander in chief, he has the “absolute right” to do so. Press TV has talked to former US diplomat Michael Springmann as well as The Hill columnist Brent Budowsky to get their opinion on this issue.
