The point is, there is no logic here. There doesn't have to be. We're in TV-land, and the talking heads have primed the pump by telling the hypnotized masses that a chemical weapons attack is coming.
Speaking of 9/11 War Games, Russia just held some war games on 9/11. And not just any war games, but the biggest war games they've held since the Cold War. The drills, scheduled to wrap up on the 17th, involve the deployment of 300,000 troops and include maneuvers in Russia's Far East region, as well as a naval build up in the waters of the East Sea, the Bering Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk. . . . Oh, and these war games also involve the Chinese military.
Although significant by themselves, these exercises are made all the more significant by the fact that they come hot on the heels of a major naval exercise in the eastern Mediterranean (aka Syria's doorstep) earlier this month.
Do you have the feeling that there is a concerted effort going on right now to demonstrate Russia's military might? Then you're right! Of course, these exercises are not happening in a vacuum, but as the endgame in Syria draws near, with Syrian troops and the Russian Air Force beginning their campaign to oust the final enclave of terrorist jihadis from Syria's Idlib Governorate.
As you can imagine, the gaggle of bloodthirsty neocons that infest Trump's war cabinet are unhappy about the prospect of their golden boys in Syria—those lovely child-beheading terrorists that they have been supporting for the last seven years—being vanquished entirely. After all, the Al CIA-duh terrorists are the "good guys" these days, don't you know. (Actually they were always the "good guys," but that's a conspiracy fact for another time.)
And so, like clockwork, we have the good lapdogs of the corporate press solemnly warning that there will be a chemical false flag attack in Idlib very soon to justify the next strike on Syria that we know Trump and his cronies are already planning. Of course, they don't call it a false flag attack, but we all know that's exactly what is on the drawing board. And, as James Evan Pilato and I report ...
This isn’t a get rich quick scheme or a scam or anything else. This is a benefit that people who served in the military are eligible for, and frankly one I didn’t know existed.
In order for the New World Order to rise, the Old World Order has to die. That is what we are witnessing when we watch Europe climbing on board with the Eurasian agenda and "standing up" to Uncle Sam.
...we are living in a weird inverse economic reality where cause does not follow effect and nothing does make rational sense. It's a magical world created by the wizards of Wall Street, and, to the extent that we participate in their system by using their monopoly money and investing in their rigged markets, they will continue bending those markets to their will...
Today, I can’t think of one person I know that does NOT know someone suffering at some degree from this disease. Something’s changed folks...
...if it's a question of optics, there's no doubt that China's checkbook diplomacy is earning it more friends in Africa than Uncle Sam's gun-barrel diplomacy.
...this negotiation with the Taliban is born of desperation, not principle, and the US Empire has painted itself into a corner in Afghanistan that no amount of dollar bills is going to get them out of.
Our good friends at the CIA wrote a lengthy defense of the PAM project and prediction markets in general in 2007, so you can bet that it went ahead under a blanket of classification secrecy at some point.
Since installed as UN chief, he’s been silent about US/NATO/Israeli terror-bombing – massacring countless thousands of defenseless civilians, the highest of high crimes ongoing almost daily in multiple theaters.
Either Trump is every bit the uneducated, uncouth, ill-prepared, bumbling idiot that the left suggests, OR, he’s playing a sophisticated game here.
I feel horrible that I’m saying this stuff in my own country. I think you should be able to wear or support just about anyone or anything (that’s legal) that you like.
A few years ago, even a few months ago, such a plan would have been unthinkable. Today, it is merely fanciful. And tomorrow . . . ?
Indeed, all the conditions for the same Smoot-Hawley pattern of protectionist tariffs, global trade war, economic collapse and, eventually, all-out war, are now in place.
Each day that goes by brings us one day closer to the “end game.” One would have to be genuinely silly to try and put a date on that event, but you all know it’s coming. The US dollar’s days as the world reserve is going to come to an end.
...now that we are living in an era where India and China are being positioned as "rivals" of the American hegemon, it certainly makes sense that we will see the key tenets of Pax Americana challenged.
