US Attacks Syria with Cruise Missile Barrage on the Back of Big Lie.

At around 3.40am Damascus time on April the 7th, the US Navy launched a barrage of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles upon the Shayrat Syrian Air Force base in Homs province leaving at least six members of the Syrian military dead along with 9 civilians including four children.

Reports of damage vary widely but an aircraft repair depot containing damaged 8 planes and the radar station appear to have been the greatest losses of material.

The attack appears to have been extraordinarily militarily ineffective,but that is secondary to the fact that a threshold has been crossed, a precedent has been set and once these operations begin they almost inevitably achieve a momentum of their own.

In response Russia has suspended the agreement with the US coalition designed to avoid accidental collision or clashes between the Syrian/Russian and US coalition aircraft.

This is a troubling and potentially extremely dangerous development, but all signs indicate that Russia understands perfectly well that it is no position to directly engage the US in the Middle East.

Therefore in my opinion Russia will not respond directly against the US in Syria, certainly not in the near future, but will seek to engineer a diplomatic end to the issues.

The End of Donald Trump.

The attacks signaled to all intents and purposes the end of the Trump administration in any meaningful sense in all but name.

Trump has walked away, he is no longer present, they had a regime change over there this week it seems and now he knows he is just the front-man, has accepted it and is playing the role.

Robert Parry at Consortium News provides a credible, albeit anonymously sourced account of the internal machinations:

“the Trump national security team split between the President’s close personal advisers, such as nationalist firebrand Steve Bannon and son-in-law Jared Kushner, on one side and old-line neocons who have regrouped under National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, an Army general who was a protégé of neocon favorite Gen. David Petraeus.”

White House Infighting

“In this telling, the earlier ouster of retired Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser and this week’s removal of Bannon from the National Security Council were key steps in the reassertion of neocon influence inside the Trump presidency. The strange personalities and ideological extremism of Flynn and Bannon made their ousters easier, but they were obstacles that the neocons wanted removed.”

“Though Bannon and Kushner are often presented as rivals, the source said, they shared the belief that Trump should tell the truth about Syria, revealing the Obama administration’s CIA analysis that a fatal sarin gas attack in 2013 was a “false-flag” operation intended to sucker President Obama into fully joining the Syrian war on the side of the rebels — and the intelligence analysts’ similar beliefs about Tuesday’s incident.”

Instead, Trump went along with the idea of embracing the initial rush to judgment blaming Assad for the Idlib poison-gas event. The source added that Trump saw Thursday night’s missile assault as a way to change the conversation in Washington, where his administration has been under fierce attack from Democrats claiming that his election resulted from a Russian covert operation.”

Later Parry writes

“logic and respect for facts no longer prevail inside Official Washington, nor inside the mainstream U.S. news media.”

Trump’s ‘Wag the Dog’ Moment

They Know It is All a Lie.

In the space of 24 hours Trump has completely repudiated everything he ever said about Syria and foreign policy in general. The intelligence reports must be pretty damning, they must have concocted a case? Apparently not according to Philip Giraldi, extremely credible former CIA officer who stated:

“The intelligence confirms pretty much the account that the Russians have been giving … which is that they hit a warehouse where the rebels – now these are rebels that are, of course, connected with Al Qaeda – where the rebels were storing chemicals of their own and it basically caused an explosion that resulted in the casualties. Apparently the intelligence on this is very clear.”

In order to see just how these actions represent a complete repudiation of everything Trump claimed to represent, we need simply to measure the actions against the President’s own words upon inauguration.

The Inaugural Address | whitehouse.gov

The Promise to serve the people rather than the establishment.

“Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.”

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.

These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.”

This is a very powerful statement and the way I interpret it is he is saying that when he makes a decision the impact of said decision on the average American will be at the core of the process. It is the promise to govern in the interests of the people,”a nation exists to serve its citizens.”

This is a great litmus test by which to evaluate Trump as President.

Later in the speech the same themes are expressed even more forcefully and the folly of the US foreign policy over recent decades is also discussed.

“For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;

Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;

We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;

And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.

But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.

From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.”

The Inaugural Address | whitehouse.gov

So is there any possible way that the average American family will benefit from the hurling of cruise missiles against Syrian military airfields? If so, how?

There is simply no way any of this benefits the people of the US and that militarily ineffective barrage cost the taxpayers of the US more than 90 million dollars on missiles alone.

(the cost of a single Tomahawk cruise missile is listed as being 1.59 million dollars, 59 times that gives you 93.8 million dollars)

An Open and Shut Breach of International Law.

The attack was not in conformity with international law and can therefore be deemed a war crime in and of itself, an act of criminal aggression taken on an evidence free pretext and without the required UN mandate. It is beyond unlikely that anyone will ever be prosecuted for making this illegal order but that is due to the impotence of the administration of international law, the illegality is uncontroversial.

“All members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state” (Source)

Even if they eventually hold an investigation and it supports the assertions the US President has made about the origin of the Khan Shaykhun attack, the response was still illegal because there was no UN mandate and no imminent threat- the only situation that provides a legal exception.

” a general prohibition (on the use of force against another nation), subject only to the exceptions stated in the Charter (self-defence and Chapter VII action by the Security Council).

Use of Force by States-Wikipedia

Besting Obama in a bad way.

In his crude way, Trump has shown Obama the “correct” way to capitalise on a big lie.

Act before there is time for the real evidence to emerge. Act like a moron and pretend everyone knows what has happened without evidence, or recourse to basic commonsense.

Create facts on the ground with your response, that is, start the war and after that you’re off and away, the situation will now escalate naturally due to the action that you have taken enabling you to ride the big lie all the way to your desired outcome.

The desired outcome here would appear to be the complete destruction of the Syrian government and the dismemberment of the nation, with Israel gifted the Golan,al Qaeda, the Kurds and the Alawi/Shia./Druze/Christians all hosting mini-states in the place of Syria and never-ending bloodshed in its place.

Coup Attempt Underway in US?

The inauguration of is only days away and while it is hoped that the people who have been trying to prevent and destroy the Trump Presidency before it begins will recognise that they have lost, and that they need to respect the wishes of the US people as expressed n the election, there are multiple powerful signs that a decision has been taken by certain elements to destroy the Trump Presidency one way or another because any rapprochement with Russia is completely unacceptable to the secret rulers they represent.

While Russia is not and does not want to be an enemy of the United States, and represents no threat to the people of the US, Russia is an implacable foe of the world domination project being run by the ruling Western oligarchs using the US military and government as a front.

That is the key reason for the manic and hysterical response to the Trump victory.

Because while it matters absolutely nothing to the people of the US that Russia annexed Crimea, this move and the Syrian operation were both completely unacceptable acts of disobedience from the point of view of the ruling cabal.

These operations brought to a sudden end the complete US-Western hegemony that the Western elite assumed would last forever following the collapse of the Soviet Union a quarter of a century ago.

In that time a very deep and long term commitment to this project was created within the Western elite and their minions. These people cannot let go of the dream of complete power on the planet regardless of the consequences and would prefer to fight a war against Russia, than accept the reality that the days of the lone hyper power are over.

The Truth Before the Lies.

Late on election night as the (for them) terrible news of a Trump victory sunk in and before the campaign of mega- lies had started, Ben Mankiewicz of the Young Turks stated the truth about influence and the election.

“With everybody on her side, with everybody trying to help her . Frickin even Republicans were coming out of the woodwork to try and help her. Everybody! Jay Z, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, everybody, every frickin television comedian…..and she still lost to this guy, what does that tell you?” (Source)

Mrs. Clinton received overwhelming support from the entire US and Western cultural elite but this support was not enough to counteract her weakness as a candidate and the difficulty of winning three consecutive terms in the White House, something that has happened only once in living memory when George H. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in the 1988 election.

In the major US print media support for Clinton over Trump ran at a ratio of around 25 to 1, with more than 500 outlets endorsing Clinton whilst around 25 supported Trump.

In the weeks after the election the faction in power engaged in a twin track policy of infiltration and sabotage. Great hope was placed in Mitt Romney being appointed Secretary of State and using the position to neuter any attempts by Trump at rapprochement with Russia or break from the foreign policy “blob” or the Deep State in any way.

Once it was announced that Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson was to be the nominee as Secretary of State, all hope of infiltration evaporated, this was the final straw.

Zero Hour Approaches?

The approach became one of pure sabotage, and in the past several weeks we have seen increasingly aggressive and desperate moves from the faction in power and their media outlets to delegitimise the election and claim that Russia manipulated the process on Trump’s behalf in what is clearly a co-ordinated and concerted attempt to destroy the Trump presidency before it begins.

Regardless of your opinion of Trump these efforts should be vehemently opposed for reasons Glenn Greenwald explains eloquently here:

Russia Must be Destroyed: John McCain and the Case of the Dodgy Dossier

Every word was a transparent lie, and the only thing that was exposed was that whilst the criminal faction who control the US were claiming that Russia influenced the election, it was actually their Cabal allies from British Intelligence fabricating dirt in a despicable and ill advised attempt to usurp the will of the American people.

It is not merely the sexual element of this dossier that is patent nonsense, the claims of a private server communicating with a Russian bank are also bunk as both the anti- Trump Washington Post and relatively neutral  Intercept explained months ago.

Here’s the Problem With the Story Connecting Russia to Donald Trump’s Email Server

That secret Trump-Russia email server link is likely neither s ecret nor a Trump-Russia link – The Washington Post

In these cases, when the evil ones become desperate, the lack of evidence is merely incidental. The absence of facts obfuscated by an avalanche of lurid lies. Some writers have noticed the similarity to the prelude to the Iraq war.

The Russian Dossier Reminds Me of the Row Over Saddam’s WMDs

The tactics are very similar, you pile one lie up on top of another and seek to bewilder the opponent who is not sure which lie to attack and while they are trying to figure out how to respond you pile more and more on, creating a  grand compound lie.

In the case of Iraq, the big lie was not that Iraq had chemical or biological weapons, that is still what some claim but the real lie was that Iraq represented a threat to the world that needed to be acted upon. It made no difference even if Iraq did possess these weapons, they were still no threat to anyone and the leaders of the West knew that perfectly well. There may have been sincere and well meaning people who genuinely believed Iraq had these weapons but nobody in DC or London (or Canberra and Warsaw) truly believed that Iraq was going to do anything with those weapons. The idea that Iraq was a threat that needed to be addressed was the core lie. The rest is smoke.

In this case we begin with the semi-credible story that people in Russia entered the DNC server but there is zero evidence that Russia was the source for the Wikileaks releases, nor that the Russian leadership were involved, nor that the Wikileaks releases had any significant impact on the election,nor that Russia even favoured Trump.

In fact the Wikileaks revelations got very little traction in the US media and it was the extraordinary intervention of the FBI Chief James Comey eleven days before the election that switched the momentum of the campaign in Trump’s favour as the same parties who are now trying to blame Russia admitted at the time.

The parallels do not end there with one micro-brain on twitter attempting to directly link the Trump and Hussein families.

The barrle being weel and truly scraped here.
The barrel being well and truly scraped here.

The Bottom Line.

The faction in power are not willing to accept defeat and every attempt is being made to make rapprochement with Russia impossible and/or remove Trump from the scene. It is very possible that the President elect and close associates will be publicly branded Russian agents by certain US intelligence agencies in the coming days. Arrests and indictments are possible, regardless of the lack of evidence.

It is also possible that certain elements will attempt to remove Trump from the scene entirely, or even Obama, for what is required is a crisis of sufficient magnitude to declare a National Emergency and activate the Continuity of Government process that supplants the elected government as happened quietly after 911.

Shadow Government Is at Work in Secret

Hopefully rationality and good sense prevail but there are numerous indications that the war party, the Deep State, the Cabal operatives in the US Government however they may be described, are going to do something dramatic in the coming days and months regardless of the will of the US people or the risk of destabilisation and conflict.

The internal battle is taking place beneath the surface but representatives of the factions communicate their views in the media.

Here some of them explain some of what is happening.

Democrat Senator Chuck Shumer on the Rachel Maddow show, January 3rd. (Source)

Rachel Maddow: “….he’s taking these shots, this antagonism, this taunting of the intelligence community.”

Shumer “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you, so even for a practical supposedly hard nosed businessman he is being really dumb to do this.”

Maddow: (in gleeful expectation) “What do you think the intelligence community would do if they were motivated to?”

Shumer: “I don’t know but from what I’m told they are very upset at how he has treated them and talked about them.”

Alex Jones of Infowars, January 6th. (Source)

“Oh yes the Council on Foreign Relation private meetings that Hillary and John Kerry were at, you think somebody recorded those., (bellows) You think somebody recorded those hoss! You think we don’t have people everywhere jackass!”

(Note: This is very interesting as when Jones refers to “we”-“we have people everywhere” he is obviously not referring to Infowars which has it’s only real base in Austin and a small staff , the “we” who have people everywhere clearly refers to some intelligence agency or faction, and when combined with Jones’ recent pronouncement that long term associate Steve Piecnevik is a current CIA operative, it seems that Alex Jones and Infowars is a vehicle for one or more factions of US intelligence. This may explain the wildly erratic quality of Infowars work and their massive blind spots in certain areas.

But the real lesson here is that what we are observing are the surface ripples of a battle taking place within the CIA and the other elements of the US and international deep state, Rachel Maddow, Gordon Duff, John Schindler, Louise Mensch and almost the entire major media represent the ruling faction, Fox News, Drudge and Infowars are pretty much the only large outlets who  openly support faction 2.

Credible and intelligent people are claiming the whole thing is theatre, it has gone well beyond that in my opinion but there is one important kernel of truth in that hypotheses and that is whatever side you are on, you are supporting the CIA)

AJ continues: “It’s all out there, so damaging it may destroy this country but before you are able to strangle it for sure and destroy it, it is going to be released… All of it.”

“So you broke your deal with Trump, you weasels, because a lot of this probably does need to come out it is so bad. Needs to be reform, taken care of, people need to be dealt with . A lot of folks need to get cancer, the real fast acting type. They need to agree to it.”

“But no you’re going to go on to the end, you are not going to stop. You are going to keep trying to sabotage things once Trump gets in, we understand that.We know that you are not going to go away, we understand you are never going to back off, We get it.”

“And so you want to have a big fight, you want to have a civil war? Fill your hands, go ahead, you don’t think everyone has been running around forever getting ready for this?”

Following his delivery of that incendiary missive, which I take seriously despite Jones’ spotty record in many areas and incessant exaggeration. Alex Jones apparently left town on an apparently unplanned holiday and has not reappeared in the Infowars Austin studio in the following ten days.

David Brooks explains the motive.

David Brooks is a long time New York Times columnist, a reliable establishment voice over decades with an intense and undisguised loyalty for the current power faction.

Here he offers a quick summation of the reason that Trump is unacceptable and must be either moved or removed lest the New World Order project drift even further from it’s course.

PBS News-hour, January 6th. (Source)

“But the thing that should most concern us is a shift in American foreign policy, we have had a bipartisan belief in American foreign policy based on the post World War 2 institutions that believed in democratic global world (sic) which Russia and the Soviet Union was often seen as hostile to, and most Republicans and Democrats have always basically believed in this world order.”

(Note: The conflation of the Soviet communist monstrosity with Russia is a classic lie the minions slip into the conversation to obscure the fact that there is no basis for the US to perceive modern day Russia as a threat or an enemy.)

“Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin and maybe Marine Le Pen do not agree with this basic structure of the world.They seem to have no respect for the institutions that were created after World War 2 and they see a potential alliance of populists around the world who would fight Islam and restore a certain semblance of traditional values. And so we could be seeing a pivot in American foreign policy which may be in the mind of Trump, certainly seems to be in the mind of Stephen Bannon, his ideologist and this is a piece of that larger shift.”

Any form of nationalism, no matter how rational or reasonable, is forbidden.

The truth of course is that the only threat the US faces and the only real threat the US has ever faced in the post Civil war period at least, is the tyranny of the cabal imposed from within.

Trump Heading for Victory on Back of Rust Belt Rebellion.

Upset Stuns Establishment in Brexit Reprise.

On the back of a swag of stunning victories across the Midwest, Republican candidate Donald Trump has defied the pundits and is on the verge of claiming a shock election victory.

Donald Trump as won key swing states of Ohio and Florida, has taken North Carolina and  at around 100 am US eastern time Trump has a solid 259 of the required 270 electoral college votes with a victory in either Wisconsin and Michigan putting the election beyond the reach of the Democrat candidate.

With 97% counted trump is ahead in Pennsylvania, he also leads in Michigan and Wisconsin,Clinton surrogates admit that their only path to victory is to swing Arizona, with two thrds of the vote counted Trump leads in Arizona  by three points. It is over.

Neither candidate has appeared before the public despite the fact that it is well after midnight on the east coast. Presumably Mrs Clinton will concede in the coming hours as the faint possibility of victory is completely extinguished and the apparent President elect will follow after that.

Markets have plummeted across the world and the controlled media are alternating between ashen grief and pretending that they supported Trump all along.

The media, the polls and the establishment have received a stunning repudiation they would be wise to heed.

Election Day.

The voting is almost over and the winner of the 2016 US Presidential election will be known within the next twelve hours or so.

The campaign has been marked by an extraordinary level of bitterness and division with both major campaigns focusing on the negatives of their opponent more than positive policy initiatives for much of the time.

Democracy in Action.

Democracy is a brilliant device created by the elites in order to provide the population under their control with the illusion of choice and accountability. No matter who runs for office, the people of the US and elsewhere are never going to be able to vote their way to freedom, true freedom, and this video provides an excellent argument against participation in this system.

However, at this time, the broad mass of the people believe in the system, the US remains the most influential of the around 200 nation states of planet earth and the Presidency, although vastly over-rated in many ways, remains an immensely influential position, so while eloquent arguments can be made that the whole idea of government is inherently flawed, there is no doubt that the result of the election and the identity of the President remain matters of great importance.

The Story So Far.

In March in the midst of the Primary season, Monica Crowley articulated the mood of the US people in light of the primary results

“What you are seeing is a wholesale rejection of the bipartisan establishment class, the ruling class, the elites, that for so long have told us one thing and promised one thing and done something else- only to empower themselves. Not looking after the interests of the American people, not looking after the interests of the country as a whole. Looking after their own interests.”

“That’s why you see the earthquake happen on both left and right. The bulk of the American people on both sides are saying.. You know what we gave you a chance, we are sick of you all and and we are going to go with something and somebody completely different.”

Monica Crowley, O’Reilly Factor, Fox News, March 9th, 2016.

The primary campaign saw Donald Trump succeed as an insurgent candidate inside the Republican party but on the Democrat side the primary race was rigged in numerous ways by the leadership of the Democrat party on behalf of Hillary Clinton denying the most popular candidate Bernie Sanders the victory he deserved and denying the Democrat supporters any real representation in the election.

Emails show Sanders made peace ‘agreement’ with Clinton | New York Post

Sanders showed his true colours when he responded to the theft of the Primary by meekly endorsing Mrs Clinton, an act that must rank as one of the greatest betrayals of the people he was supposed to represent in recent US history.

The upshot of that was that for the millions of Americans who know that things are not supposed to be this way. That the richest nation on earth supposedly should not have the combination of crumbling infrastructure and a 20 trillion debt.  That a nation should have borders and apply the law. That it is unacceptable to have continue to spend trillions fighting endless and futile wars based on phony threats were left only one real choice in the election, the Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

The Real Message to take from Mainstream Media.

Regardless of the result this election has been an important cultural event as it has seen the mainstream media completely expose the dishonest nature of their role in the process, discrediting themselves forever to millions of people due to the blatant pro-Clinton bias they have exhibited throughout and that perception has been made concrete by the Wikileaks E-Mail releases that have detailed the relationship between the Clinton campaign and CNN, the Huffington Post and other publications.

The people backing Hillary are the current ruling cabal. It is that simple and the astonishing media coverage of the election where Clinton revelations were entirely whitewashed and disappeared from the narrative on a daily basis is on it’s own powerful evidence of that.

The cabal own and run the controlled media, it is a key lever and we have seen laughably one sided coverage of this election right across the Western world. All the same media organisations who sell each new war based on lies are putting every effort into getting Hillary Clinton elected.

End this misogynistic horror show. Put Hillary Clinton in the White House

Trump’s self destructive, “walking tweeting disaster” persona gave them all the material they required it must be admitted, but time and again impolite words have been catapulted to the head of the headlines whilst revelations of serious corruption and criminality within the DNC and the State Department have been written out of the story or relegated to the bottom of the stack.

Exposure.

The US people have been betrayed by an entire generation of political leaders of both parties who pretended to serve the interests of the American people while acting to destroy their nation on the behalf of the corporations while blaming the other side of politics for the steady decline in the US economy and way of life. The media have been key accomplices at every step in the long con.

The career of Hillary Clinton is a textbook example of this inter-generational betrayal and over recent months Wikileaks have released a series of material gleaned from the hacked E-mail account of key Democrat party staffer John Podesta have ended all doubt about this.

The Democrat party machine initially sought to respond by claiming that the files had been obtained by Russia as part of a Russian attempt to influence the US election and had the brazen audacity to claim that Donald Trump, the Republican candidate was a secret representative of Russia.

No evidence as to the identity of the hackers behind the leaks was ever produced, nor any evidence of sinister connections between the GOP candidate and Russia.

Because 50,000 E Mails have been released in a very brief period of time, the scale of what is revealed is only slowly becoming clear. What has already been analysed is absolutely devastating and reveals the self serving and corrupt nature of the Clinton coterie once again.

These are people who boast of sending mentally ill people to Trump rallies to start trouble.

An artists rendering of Queen Hillary upon her ascension to power!

Hillary Clinton.

The Hillary Clinton campaign is anchored squarely in the fallacy that the status quo is acceptable. Throughout the campaign Mrs Clinton has never articulated any positive vision with the promise to deliver “more of the same” being the core message.

Mrs Clinton is simply the front person for the ruling cabal, and the only remotely positive positions she has taken, such as her supposed opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal will  be abandoned should she be elected.

In terms of Foreign Policy Hillary Clinton is not a dove or a hawk, she is simply an obedient cabal operative who will do whatever she is told on any and all policy matters. If instructed to start a war with Russia in Syria she will do so, although the “No Fly Zone” policy Clinton has long advocated has been “walked back” significantly in recent weeks with an “after negotiation” clause inserted.

Mrs Clinton is a polished and competent performer but this has been one of the most uninspiring campaigns of all time and if it succeeds this will be completely due to the problems with the Republican candidate and the residual power of the professional liars of the major media.

The campaign has rested almost entirely on marshaling people to vote against Trump rather than voting for Hillary Clinton herself.

The Corruption Already Exposed Makes the Clinton candidacy untenable.

The sad truth, and there is no way around it although widespread denial persists, is that if Hillary Clinton wins the election the US will be mired in crisis and chaos for the foreseeable future. Hillary Clinton is not going to be allowed to assume the presidency in the conventional sense.

If Hillary Clinton wins the election as still seems the likely result, the US and the world are going to be plunged into an agonising and prolonged crisis, all of the dirty laundry is going to be aired and when the veil is pulled from what the Clinton cartel have done, there are going to be numerous easily provable serious crimes exposed and even if the compromised instruments of justice walk away, the impeachment process will begin the day after inauguration.

It’s the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz! Donald Trump enters the stage at the Republican convention, July 2016.

USA! USA! USA!”

Trump supporter chants. Green Bay, Wisconsin, October 17th, 2016.

There is no doubt that the Trump campaign has been a train-wreck in many ways with weeks of valuable time wasted by the petty and counterproductive squabbles of the often foolish candidate detracting from the message the campaign was trying to communicate.

In all likelihood should Donald Trump defy expectations and win the election , he will be exposed as another fake change President like Obama, a President who changed the tone and some of the tactics but continued to build a domestic police state and also to destroy the Middle East and North Africa, simply changing the pretext for the wars.

On Foreign Policy matters Trump has made some encouraging statements about not wanting a war with Russia but beyond that offers little hope. Every word on Iran is nonsense and the declaration on Jerusalem is completely despicable.

In addition, the prospective Trump foreign policy-security team is jam packed full of war mongers and the Trump temperament will be exceedingly easy to manipulate should a war be required.

All they will need to do will be to kidnap a couple of Americans in the target area, chop their heads off on video (fake or real- it matters not) and then the press will all say “Hey Don, you aren’t just going to let those punks get away with that are you?” Within days cruise missiles are pounding previously unheard of remote villages in the target area.

Trump is a highly effective and likeable public speaker and he has delivered some excellent speeches completely at odds with the mainstream media portrayal of his candidacy. The only people in the US chanting “tell the truth” are the Trump supporters.

There is no doubt that Trump has become a lightning rod for a greater awakening, albeit one that is still in the very early stages but the movement that has coalesced around Trump will probably dominate non-Democrat politics in the US over the next generation regardless of the result of the election.

Donald Trump Rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin (10/17/2016)

Donald Trump FULL Gettysburg Address Speech – October 22, 2016

These people deserve better than Trump, much better, and hopefully in the future they will get the leadership they deserve, but right now there is Trump.

Sovereignty and the Border.

This has been the signature Trump domestic issue. On this issue Trump has made many base and demagogic statements, hurled slurs at millions of innocent people and persisted with the nonsense that Mexico is going to pay for the wall.

Mexico is not going to pay for the wall and the wall itself may not even be built, certainly not across the entire border, but as irritating as much of this is, it is all secondary because when you strip back the rhetoric you are left with a simple fact, Donald Trump believes the US should be a nation with secure borders and will try and implement that broad policy goal if elected President.

In stark contrast, Hillary Clinton and the faction she represents believe that the US should have open or even no border, should become part of a North American Union and then part of a broader system of world government and cease to be a nation state in the traditional sense.

Mrs Clinton stated that her dream was “a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders”(Source)

The Clinton faction not only believes in these things they are openly implementing these policies right across the West, using the refugee crisis caused by the West’s wars on Libya and Syria as a pretext to dissolve the external EU borders (the internal borders having already been literally dissolved by the European Union.

Therefore, all the people who want to have a border and want to live in a nation would surely best serve this goal in the short term by voting for Trump despite his many shortcomings.

Beyond all the rhetoric and the persona’s Trump may possibly be a candidate for the United States, Hillary most certainly is a candidate for the global power elite, and their record of destruction speaks for itself.

Incirlik Airbase Surrounded Amid Rumours of Second Turkish Coup Attempt.

In a stunning development in the wake of the failed US/NATO coup of mid July, credible sources are reporting that 7000 Turkish police have surrounded the NATO Incirlik Airbase in southern Turkey amid rumours of a second coup attempt.

The Failed Coup was not the end.

This development indicates several important things. One being that it is not over and those behind the previous attempt are not going to let it go at that, especially after the Turkish president has been berating and humiliating his “betters” since the epic blunder that now may see Turkey depart NATO.

Turkish prosecutor claims CIA, FBI trained coup plotters

Former NATO commander ‘behind failed coup against Erdogan’ – Turkish daily

Turkish papers have openly blamed senior US military figures both for financing and fomenting the coup making the situation one of complete humiliation for the US.

Such has been Erdogan’s hubris in the wake of the failed coup that he was almost creating a situation where a second attempt became inevitable. More level headed members of the Government appear to have recognised this danger and yesterday Erdogan announced that he was not going to pursue criminal charges against a number of journalists accused of the absurd “crime” of insulting the President.

Turkey president Erdoğan to drop cases of insult in coup aftermath

Whether the former US General has been named was involved is something of a moot point at this stage. While many have claimed that the coup was a false flag this hypothesis does not stand up to scrutiny or logical appraisal.  It is a contemptible canard that ignores the facts.

Facts such as that the CIA media vehicle NBC America reported at the start of the coup that Erdogan had fled Turkey and was seeking asylum in Germany.

That was a classic piece of agency disinformation designed to destroy the morale of Erdogan supporters by presenting them with a fait a compli.

That alone ends the debate about a false flag coup for any with a single functioning synapse because it would be hopelessly naive to believe that NBC made an honest mistake. They do not work like that. So either Erdogan is a Machiavellian genius (he clearly is not) or the NBC were performing their customary role as leading liar on behalf of the Empire. (This is not to single them out, ABC, CBS and Fox all serve the same purpose)

In addition, lesser vehicles of US intelligence were pushing completely dishonest stories in the preceding week, stories known to be lies to the people writing them. Veterans Today came out with a story claiming that Turkey had used nuclear weapons against the Kurds in northern Syria in late 2014.

EXCLUSIVE: Turkey nuked the Kurds inside Syrian territory | Veterans Today

It was a lie and they knew it was a lie, they had reported on the US tactical nuclear strike in the week it happened,

Has America Nuked Syria? | New Eastern Outlook

There were not even any Turkish airstrikes in Syria at that time, nor any accusation of any Turkish Airstrike.  They used a video still to pursue their false claim, but inexplicably failed to provide any video. The reason for this was rather clear, in the video the ISIS flag is visible on the hill before the bomb hits!

That is how much contempt these people have for the audience.  It is very sad to see the disinformation filter down to those who lack all reason and logic and thus simply repeat the party line.

Alexandr Dugin makes the point far more eloquently.

Dugin’s guideline – The Turkish coup and American disinformation

Erdogan, Russia Rising and the US in terminal decline?

To describe Erdogan as a flawed figure would be a considerable understatement. He is prone to demagoguery,  corrupt, authoritarian and shameless. But that is not the point, Erdogan is the leader of Turkey, he is Turkey’s issue and the US have done themselves immeasurable damage with these cataclysmic shenanigans.

The whole fiasco  underlines the contrast between a rising Russia and a US in catastrophic decline across the Middle East as decades of lies and double dealing come home to roost.

The Real War Against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Terrorist Massacre in Iraq.

On March 26th the ceremony following a children’s soccer match was attacked by a seventeen year old ISIS suicide bomber named Saifullah al Ansar. The attack left 41 people dead and scores wounded.

The videos below depicts the attack on al Asirya village near the town of Iskandariya,* located around 50kms south of the Iraqi capital.

These videos do not show any of the carnage caused by the attack, merely people’s reaction to what has happened, as well as showing the moment of the blast.

There is a stark contrast between the unmistakable terror and horror as people respond to this event compared to the Brussels aftermath despite the fact that the people of Iraq are far more accustomed to acts of extreme violence having experienced four major wars over recent decades along with an ultra-violent insurgency now in its thirteenth year.

Iraq: At least 29 killed in suicide bomb attack at football match

 ISIS Suicide Bomber in Iraq Kills Dozens at Soccer Game ,Most of the crowd were young people

As ISIS begin to collapse as a conventional army able to stand and fight, the tactics change from fighting battles to low terrorist attacks such as the one at Iskandariya.

The only purpose is to show that they can still cause heavy casualties and suffering despite being defeated on the battlefield.

These attacks are impotent acts of rage and bitterness that show that ISIS is in the early stages of battlefield collapse in both Syria and Iraq.

The suicide truck bombs so central to their success have now become overwhelmingly ineffective. The bombers rarely reach their targets as the Iraqi and Syrian military have become competent in destroying the vehicles with rockets and heavy weapons as they travel towards them.

Every week numerous failed suicide car and truck bomb attacks are filmed and posted on the Internet, the Youtube channel Stahlgewitter Syrien specialises in videos of these successfully foiled attacks. These are two recent examples.

Russia did not leave Syria.

The story Russia put out that it was pulling out f Syria has turned out to have been something of an exaggeration. Around a quarter of the around 100 Russian Aircraft stationed at the peak remain in Syria and in addition Russian Special Forces are in action on the ground.

A member of the Russian Special Forces and possibly more, recently died in the fighting against ISIS near the central Syrian city of Palmyra. The group claimed to have killed five Russian soldiers and this may well be true. It is certain that at least one Russian died as the group were able to photograph the body and loot the soldier’s impressive array of equipment which they video recorded.

The Liberation of Palmyra.

The Islamic State group seized Palmyra in May 2015 and the Syrian Army have been conducting an operation to free the city from the clutches of the puppet psychopaths of ISIS for several months now with mixed results.

It is now being reported that the Syrian Military and their allies have liberated Palmyra and the adjacent town Tadmur. If so this will be an immense symbolic victory and makes it completely impossible for Neoconservatives (and their media) to claim that Syria and Russia are not fighting ISIS as they have been trying to pretend until recently.

The magnificence of the Palmyra ruins and the depravity and destruction ISIS have wrought upon the city combine to end all doubt as to the identity of the real enemy of civilisation in the middle east and it is not the government of Syria.

One sure sign that the US had completely given up on the dream of regime change in Syria was the fact that CNN sent a reporter weeks ago to report on the Battle for Palmyra from the point of view of the Syrian Army.

Heavy Russian and US Airstrikes Blast Mosul and Raqqa.

On March 19th Russia launched an intense overnight bombardment of the town of Raqqa.  All of the casualty numbers are estimates but it was reported that 60 people died in the strikes and that thirteen civilians were among the dead. The casualty numbers are often distorted due to the fact that most militant factions will cover up their own casualties and accentuate civilian casualties instead for obvious reasons.

A day later the US launched a tremendous bombardment of Mosul, the ISIS capital. Limited media reports stated that at least 25 civilians and an unknown number of ISIS fighters died in the attacks.

Scores of Civilians Killed in US-Led Air Strikes on Mosul

Neither the Russian or US attacks received high media attention as the violent deaths of middle eastern civilians are not deemed newsworthy in the West unless required for specific propaganda purposes.

Listening to the Republican candidates debate whether or not Raqqa should be struck with nuclear weapons it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that many Westerners have completely lost their conception of humanity after more than a decade of permanent war.

It is laughable the way that the US political class still pretends that the effort against ISIS is ineffectual as the group are on the brink of military collapse but to say so would reduce the rationale for the desired Western invasion of Syria.

For Cruz to muse about “glowing radioactive sand” shows he is a depraved and unprincipled opportunist and it is breathtaking to imagine a culture where an individual prances around with his chest out about what a devout Christian he is while musing about using nuclear weapons against civilians, a satanic idea on every level.

Human beings of any quality, human beings who deserve the appellation do not engage in these behaviours, let alone true Christians.

If people cannot see the clear difference between the Brussels event and the real victims of violence depicted on this page they should have another look, it is pretty obvious.

The Russian Narrative of the Post Cold War era in lass than six minutes..

The video below contains an answer from Vladimir Putin to a question from veteran BBC “journalist” John Simpson.. In less than six minutes the President of the Russian Federation explains their point of view on the post cold war era in a most devastating manner.

It is a calm and skillful demolition of the Western narrative regarding Russia in all it’s infantile and morally bankrupt depravity. Even those who disagree have the opportunity at least to hear the Russian viewpoint expressed in a succinct yet powerful way.

The core of it is that when the USSR was dismantled the West continued with the tactics of the Cold war and continued to treat Russia as an adversary despite the end of the defining ideological difference.

From their point of view the acquiescence of  Russia to the Wests demands in terms of economic policy were met with encirclement, missile shields aimed at achieving Nuclear first strike capability and colour revolutions on their borders to replace their allies with the stooges of the West.

The Russian narrative has two central virtues, it is simple and it is largely true although some less “helpful” facts tend to be edited from the narrative as you would expect.

Putin Crushes BBC Smartass

The Stand over Classic.

This video presents almost a caricature of the Russian President as the stand-over man from central casting as he brutally intimidates and publicly humiliates recalcitrant Russian industrialists before the view of the public.

Worth watching if only to see the look on the face of the oligarch billionaire Oleg Deripaska when Putin asks for his pen back having just exposed the oligarch as a liar and forced him to sign a contract against his will. It is a very funny very short video.

Classic Putin

The Intellectual Version – the Munich Speech of 2007.

This is at the other end of the spectrum. This is the intellectual version of the Russian narrative as expressed by the President from Munich in 2007.

In this speech the Russian President explained what Russia was going to do and why they were going to do it.

They will try and co-operate but any transgressions close to the border will be met with overwhelming force as happened the following year in Georgia.

Putin is basically announcing that “you won’t have Russia to kick around any more.”

In front of an audience that included Angela Merkel, John McCain, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Senator Joseph Lieberman, Tzipi Livni and Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, it is amusing to watch their faces as they are informed very politely that they are deluded fools whose days of arson are coming to an end.

Putin patiently explains that the period of total US domination of international politics had been a catastrophe and his intent to end it and replace it with a system of co-operation in the context of non-interference in other states internal affairs.

The idea of simply leaving people alone is a foreign and unfamiliar concept to the Westerner after a lifetime of pro war/ we are always right/ we know everything brainwashing but it actually makes a lot of sense and represents the only hope for peace aside form the totalitarian one world government the sick creatures of the Western elite are still trying to build.
